    akela 
Type Specialty: Rock-types

Signature Pokémon: Rhydon / Carracosta

  • Deadpan Snarker: akela is this in spades. Even his ham episodes are done in this manner.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: akela is currently the leader of the CAP ASB Rock-type Gym.
  • Gotta Catch Them All: akela's stated goal; he aims to own every Pokémon in ASB. As of this edit, he has over 250 different Pokémon.
  • Incoming Ham: When someone makes a claim that is not really approvable or really silly, you better get ready for one the moment akela posts "Approving"...
  • Large Ham: Whenever he approves and finds a claim that is not approvable, expect an over the top message from him. Just like the one below.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers one of these to poor old Zekrom2525 every time he approves one of his claims, often in a hammy fashion. This is one of the many examples, all over making errors while trying to evolve a Charmander.
    ASBot 
A resident IRC Bot created by apt-get designed to replace Onion Bubs after its creator stopped being active in ASB as well as being able to interact with the Data Audit Tables created in the generational transition. ASBot does keep some old scripts from Onion Bubs such as !no and !yes but also has new scripts which are primarily designed to help users. Not a proper ASB user.

  • Big "NO!": Inherited the !no script from Onion Bubs. See that section for more details.
  • Big "YES!": Inherited the !yes script from Onion Bubs. See that section for more details.
  • Brick Joke: With inheriting !no and !yes means inheriting this aspect of those commands as well.
  • Convenient Replacement Character: ASBot is practically a replacement for Onion Bubs.
  • Spiritual Successor: With Onion Bubs and its creator long gone, this is pretty much the successor to Onion Bubs. Also inherits some commands from its predecessor.
    Birkal 
Type Specialty: Fighting-types

Signature Pokémon: Rotom

A Super Moderator of Smogon who decided to play ASB to become the Fighting-type Gym Leader and got the gig. As well as winning the Best of Best Tournament, which got him a Mewtwo. Sticks around for the community as well.

  • Police Are Useless: Despite being of a higher authority than the regular moderators, he lets the moderators do the moderating work.
    Complications 
Type Specialty: Steel-types

Signature Pokémon: Bisharp

    Dogfish44 
Type Specialty: Electric-types

Signature Pokémon: Emolga

Co-Leader of The Legend Run (alongside Its_A_Random) and one of the current moderators in ASB. Also the current owner of The Battle Hall and a member of the Gym Committee.

    Elevator Music 
Type Specialty: Fairy-types

A once-famous competitive Pokémon player who has long since retired and spends his time playing ASB. Currently a Project Moderator of the ASB forum and a member of the Gym Committee, Elevator Music has gained a notorious reputation for being incredibly difficult to beat. Won the ASB Battle Factory Tournament.

  • G.I.R.L.: He may have used avatars of women in the past, continues to do so after the shift in forums, and have the nickname "Emma", but do not be fooled; he is a man.
  • Gotta Max Them All: On a constant quest to fully develop all of his Pokémon. Currently has 33 at the time of writing.
  • In Universe Nickname: Many users refer to Elevator Music as Emma or EM.
  • The Ace: With thirteen badges—more than anyone else—five legendary Pokémon including the first ever successful Uber TLR run and one tournament win next to his name, it is hard to dispute this title.
  • The Fair Folk: Elevator Music runs the Fairy-type gym in ASB, or will run it until giving it up to pursue the Bug-type gym position left vacant by Rediamond, only to give up completely.
    Eternal Drifter 
Specialty: Storytelling

Type Specialty: Dark-types

Signature Pokémon: Smeargle

Eternal Drifter entered ASB and made a name for himself in a Legend Run with only two Pokémon (a Scrafty and Audino) and stalling for a total of three months. The creator and a Co-Leader of the shaky Adventure Battles, where trainers can fight alongside their Pokémon, he is also a candidate for the Dark-type gym in ASB.

  • Butt-Monkey: According to Stratos. Eternal Drifter cannot disagree; that is why he focuses on making stories instead of battling.
  • Casting a Shadow: Eternal Drifter's specialty. He was also a Dark Gym candidate, but a loss to LouisCyphre forced him to concede leadership before LouisCyphre's departure. He then attempted to take the gym once more, this time facing Geodude 6, but lost again.
  • Gradual Grinder: His most notable (or infamous, depending on who you ask) method of battle. He has mostly gotten out of it, even though he occasionally slips back into it. However, one success story involves him with his entry to ASB, having an Audino toxic stall a Nincada over a period of three months.
  • Insistent Terminology: Gradually subverted. When he started out, he used Poke'mon instead of Pokémon but eventually grew out of it.
  • The Roleplayer: According to Glacier Knight, he's got this huge story planned out, and only he knows how far it goes. Only time will tell if the story is played out to completion.
    • Big Bad: Eternal Drifter is attempting to roleplay his Spritomb, Demon Lord of Destruction Itsumo, as this...
      • Big Bad Wannabe: ...but in normal battles, its just a normal Spiritomb, although one with a short temper.
      • Not-So-Harmless Villain: In-character, Itsumo was much more powerful than a normal Spiritomb in the battles of the Icy Forest and the Realm of the Forgotten Demon King. It took three trainers and their Pokémon working together to defeat Itsumo in the Realm. And according to Eternal Drifter, Itsumo is only starting to show his true power.
    • Commuting on a Bus: Eternal Drifter's trainer himself, Walker. This doesn't really seem to bother his Pokémon too much; they seem to function relatively well in battle without him commanding them...
    • Demon Lords and Archdevils: While no Archdevil has been seen, there are currently three Demon Lords on Eternal Drifter's team: Itsumo the Spiritomb, Demon Lord of Destruction, Kyofu the Tyranitar, Demon Lord of Tyranny, and Goumon the Houndoom, Demon Lord of Pain.
    Frosty 
Specialty: Arguing (Positively)

Signature Pokémon: Snorlax

Owner of The Battle Pike and one of the current moderators in ASB.

  • The Ace: Frosty is one of the top players in ASB, having 15 badges under his belt at the time of this edit, as well as having come in second in the Lore, Legends, And More Action tournament, and having caught a legendary Pokemon.
  • An Ice Person: Eventually, Frosty became the Leader of the Ice Gym.
  • Green Thumb: Frosty was a candidate for the Grass-type Gym Leader. Despite winning, he gave the position to Stratos due to real life complications.
  • Nonindicative Name: It is very ironic that a user with a name like Frosty once led ASB's Fire-type gym, only to quit so he can go for the Ice-type gym.
  • Playing with Fire: After passing up the position of Grass-type Gym Leader, Frosty became the Fire Gym Leader, before stepping down to try his hand at the Ice Gym.
  • Put on a Bus: Frosty initially left mid-2011 with a dislike for how policy was run.
    Gale Wing Srock

  • Commuting on a Bus: Does this a lot as of late.
  • Team Mom: As one of the few active females, she is known to occasionally give out the Motherly advice up on request.
  • TheSmurfettePrinciple: The only female on ASB, currently. She was not, however, the first.

    Onion Bubs 
Onion Bubs is in da house! A former resident IRC bot created by Objection, Onion Bubs entertained and helped ASB users pull up data on IRC for three years before a new bot called ASBot came in and took over, leaving Onion Bubs to never return to IRC before being Killed Off for Real. Not a proper ASB user.

  • Big "NO!": Part of its !no script, where it simulates a man falling off the cliff no by going on for eternity until hitting the ground.
    Onion Bubs: Never, not in a million years, absolutely not, no way Jose, no chance Lance, nyet, negatory, mm-mm, nuh-uh, uh-uh! And of course my own personal favourite of all time, man falling off of a cliff: NNNOOOOOOOOOoooooooo.......
  • Big "YES!": Part of its !yes script, where it simulates a man winning the lottery yes by going on for eternity until running out of breath.
    Onion Bubs: Always, yes in a million years, absolutely so, yes way Jose, yes chance Lance, dah, affirmitive, mm-hmm, yuh-huh, uh-huh! And of course my own personal favourite of all time, man winning the lottery: YYYEEEEEEEEEssssssss.......
  • Brick Joke: When Onion Bubs finishes the !no or !yes script.
  • Cartoon Bomb: Onion Bubs has a lot of bombs at its disposal though they are only used to play its !bombgame.

    • "Onion Bubs is in da house!" - Its typical greet.
    • "Ouch, that hurt." - In response to being kicked from the chat.
    • "Hey, that's my line!" - If someone typed ... pff or ... sss before it could.
    • "I give x a y out of 10 right now." - When asked to rate something through the !rate command.
    • "Yo x, y wants you in #channel so get on over there!" - When asking someone to get over to a specific channel.
    • "BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! The bomb explodes in <user>'s face. ^_^" - When Onion Bubs' bomb detonates on someone in its !bombgame.
  • Game Within a Game: Its !bombgame, an IRC game that involves passing around a bomb until it explodes.
  • Killed Off for Real: After ASBot replaced Onion Bubs, poor old Onion Bubs started showing signs of dying before this happened.

    • "Anyone flash?" - Always looking for a fight when he comes on IRC.
    • "DC Check" - Justified since he suffers from a bad internet connection.

  • Making a Splash: S0L1D G0LD was the Water-type gym leader in ASB before being booted for inactivity.

  • An Ice Person: waterwarrior focuses on Ice-type Pokémon. He formerly controlled the ASB Ice-type Gym before resigning.

    zarator

Signature Pokémon: Gengar

Creator of the ASB Raid Zone, also the leader of the Ghost-type Gym in ASB.

    Zekrom2525 
Favorite Pokémon: Zekrom. Too bad it is unreleased.

  • Butt-Monkey / The Scrappy: His general misinformed mind and slow learning tends to really draw the ire of the majority of the userbase, even from newer members unaware of the fact. The recipient of many a "The Reason You Suck" Speech, he seems to be universally disliked, even the super patient. It even got to the point where he was forcibly forum-banned for a time. Time will tell whether or not he will be able to shake this tag off.

    • Lampshaded in his user profile from before the Generation 6 shift, where his "Loss" column contains an infinity symbol.
  • Crazy-Prepared: During the Water-type qualifiers where it was decided who would become ASB's Water-type Gym Leader, Athenodoros wrote out a substitution that covered a lot of possibilities of what his opponent might do. However, shortly afterwards, such substitutions became illegal.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Deck Knight specialized in Ground-types. Was a candidate for the Ground-type gym, only to lose to Its_A_Random.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: C$FP's specialty. He was once leader of the Steel-type Gym in CAP ASB.
