TANTOR (タントール, Tantōru) is the main protagonist of Team Four Star's Pokémon Soul Silver NUZLOCKE. Like LAKIGR, his name is an amalgamation of his creators' names but in this case it's the last letters, Grant, Kirran, and Lanipator. TANTOR is a 28 year-old man on a quest through Johto and Kanto to defeat LAKIGR.

AppearanceEdit

TANTOR is the size of a 28 year-old buff man with light black hair with a large bang hanging out in the front leaning to his right, black eyes, a prominent nose with bushy eyebrows. He usually has a scowl on his face due to his hell of a past. He wears a backwards black hat with a yellow stripe running around it with his name on the back of it, and a Shell Bell around his neck. TANTOR alternates between his white tank top with his name written on it and his red jacket, both include carrying a gray one strap backpack, wears black wristbands, black (wripped) knee-length pants, and red and white sneakers.

TANTOR also has a tattoo of a heart with the word "Mom" crossed out with an X that he received from Bikers.

PersonalityEdit

TANTOR started off as a Jerk Ass who lived upstairs in his mom's house, while the relationship is strained he goes berserk when his foes claim they slept with her.

TANTOR treats his Pokemon like his family as he will most likely going to a rampage seeking revenge when one of them dies. MR. STAKE (originally) was the exception because "in his eyes" was a gelatinous headbutting idiot, he most likely saw himself in the Pokemon (MR. STAKE being the Kazooie to TANTOR's Banjo). Though, this was not the case since MR. STAKE just wants to be everyone's friend. TANTOR speaks like a Pokémon always shouting "TANTOR," which has prompted his creators to establish that he is speaking "TANTORNESE." Not many can understand what he says with the exception of his family and MR. STAKE. By the time TANTOR gained respect for MR. STAKE, he became a much kinder person with a Heart of Gold while still keeping only a few of his Jerk Ass traits.

SCRODUM doesn't sit right with TANTOR, since he was considered a bully hindering TANTOR on his quest; for instance, when SCRODUM stole TANTOR's Team Rocket Grunt outfit at the Radio Tower, at the time TANTOR wanted to join Team Rocket.

TANTOR may not seem like it sometimes, but he is actually a good listener. TANTOR has thought of becoming a therapist which eventually happened, he became Dr. TANTOR and a loving caring father to his son Larenti.

FamilyEdit

Kilchan: (初代 キルチャン, First Kilchan) TANTOR's grandma. Someone asked if Kilchan from Pokémon Uranium NUZLOCKE was TANTOR's mom, however it's more likely for her to be TANTOR's grandmother due to the amount of time passed between their respective games. Since she comes from the Tandor region which sounds very close to TANTOR's name (TANTOR did time-travel using Celebi and wrote his name (incorrectly) on a random tree in the past, explaining where the Tandor Region got it's name and Kilchan getting the idea for her future grandson's name) and as well as Kilchan's hair-color most likely darkened with age to what Maqubi's mother's hair looks like.

Jerry the Delivery Man: (初代 ジェリー, First Jerī) The original Jerry is TANTOR's grandpa.

Maqubi: TANTOR's mom due to the alternate reality who became who she was after the timeline interference and her "death" causing her to change her name to Kilchan (新 キルチャン, Shin Kiruchan; "Neo Kilchan"). Resides in New Bark Town, never leaving the house after her daughter died. TANTOR has a strained relationship with her since he thinks she can't comprehend the pain of burying her children, is an alcoholic, missing appointments with the doctor, commits adultery with many other men (including Lance), and uses his money to gamble (which is where he gets his gambling habits from), buy him trivial things and alcohol for herself, as well as her husband Scott the Delivery Man spending a little too much time with her and more.

Scott: TANTOR's dad due to the alternate reality after losing ownership of the Battle Frontier and committing many crimes, he now has the job as a Delivery Man known as Jerry (新 ジェリー, Shin Jerī; "New Jerry"). He appears at random to deliver items to his son that are bought by TANTOR's mom who has a very very sexual relationship with the delivery man. It's implied Scott has been arrested before since he committed crimes like identity theft and made prison wine out of Tanga Berries and serves as the Delivery Man for his community service and job and "might" not love TANTOR's mom as such, she is sleeping with other men, including Lance. TANTOR does not consider Scott as his father because of these things and even punched his face at the Johto League despite Scott saying how proud he was of him getting so far on his journey.

SLOWMARA: TANTOR's long dead slightly younger sister. She used her spirit to possess a Slowpoke that TANTOR caught in the Azalea Town Well. The Shell Bell the Slowbro held and that TANTOR wears around his neck has the the soul of his sister. Slowmara is still alive no matter what happens and never leaves. She loves MR. STAKE and her brother, not wanting them to die using her strong and terrifying psychic powers.

Lyra: TANTOR's wife and the mom of Larenti. It was unknown who she was but it's been implied before their marriage she directly knew about TANTOR's family to an extent since his mom is always spending money, Larenti's mom took a good chunk of TANTOR's cash giving it to their son. Due to some similarities such as hair, hair-color, brown eyes, owning a Pokemon herself (Meowth) implying she was a Trainer, and knowledge about TANTOR's family. It's possible she could be an older Lyra. Lyra and TANTOR share a hometown and love for Pokemon, TANTOR even liking her Marill giving him the name "Pikablue", she was teased about TANTOR being her boyfriend by her grandparents causing a reaction from her, and she did go with him to Kanto using Celebi, as they traveled through different points of the region, as well as different time periods confirming they share a strong bond.

Larenti: TANTOR's son. TANTOR is proud of his son for continuing his legacy, despite Larenti being indifferent to most things happening around him. Larenti has a healthy relationship with his dad TANTOR and TANTOR always keeps in touch with him spying on him from afar with the use of toilet paper rolls for binoculars.

PowerEdit

TANTOR on his own is very strong. He is capable of destroying human heads with his bare hands just by crushing them, such as what he did to a pair of possessed twin girls. TANTOR saved them by putting them out of their misery.

TANTOR wears the Shell Bell around his neck that contains the soul of SLOWMARA.

TeamEdit

TANTOR formed his Pokemon Team specifically to cover weaknesses enemies would use to their advantage, but unfortunately some didn't make it as TANTOR had thought would, but even so he managed find Pokemon that surpassed his expectations for the final battle. The team also became a rock band.

TANTOR V.S. LAKIGR: The JourneyEdit

Team TANTOR Vs Team LAKIGR

TANTOR Vs LAKIGR is the main fight of Pokémon Soul Silver NUZLOCKE.

It began with the (mostly) normal Pokemon Trainer LAKIGR becoming the NUZLOCKE Champion, while he gained huge success, it came at a cost, he was turned into a monster by 3 voices and was forced to kill weak Pokemon who died. After breaking out of the voices' control over him and escaping them for 2 years protecting his Pokemon... his most trusted friends from STRIKER to BUTTDORK, he made sure to make the voices experience what he went through during Pokémon Leaf Green NUZLOCKE. This caused LAKIGR to leave his mom at Pallet Town, travel to Mt. Silver where he went through vigorous training, and people to lose contact with him not knowing where he is. The only person that did know and who he still regularly visits is his wife Sabrina.

The voices then decided to have the 28 year-old TANTOR annihilate the mistake they created. However TANTOR himself has suffered from his own problems such as the strained relationship with his mother and father, the loss of his sister at the Slowpoke Well, and as a result of his past, having the mind of a Pokemon, permanently. He suffered from being bullied by every kid because of these things (except for Lyra) until he got his revenge, bullied them, and considered to join Team Rocket. He didn't care for others but himself, he was thought to never change, but this was proven horrendously incorrect after TANTOR's meeting with MR. STAKE. At first TANTOR disliked MR. STAKE repeatedly telling him to "SHUT UP!" since he hated how happy MR. STAKE always was despite TANTOR's horrible past, he wanted to catch more Pokemon he liked more and have MR. STAKE die in his battles. But then after the losses of the Pokemon he liked more (even calling them his children), and MR. STAKE not dying despite the multiple times his life was risked for his trainer, TANTOR was saddened by this and then buried the deceased, he realized his Pokemon were his family he loved and trusted the most and has always been there for him, especially MR. STAKE who helped him the most on his quest and keeping his ever-lasting smile since the start.

When LAKIGR found out about TANTOR who the voices have used to puppet with the intent to defeat him, he trained to make them suffer about the deaths of their treasured Pokemon, TANTOR did the same with the goal to defeat LAKIGR to stop him from hurting his Pokemon since they were the only family he had and loved after his other members died early on. Both of them settling this feud at the peak of Mt. Silver.

TriviaEdit

  • Coincidentally TANTOR shares the same name as Tantor the Elephant from Tarzan.
  • TANTOR is stated to be "Too Thick" that was why he usually doesn't want to date girls.
    • Aside from the Twin Trainers, name corruption appears on the second Beauty but not a Lass, leading to the conclusion that TANTOR's just getting tongue-tied around cute women, TANTOR and Lyra thought of eachother as cute.
      • During the events of the Moon NUZLOCKE, TANTOR is confirmed to have a wife and son.
        • This would imply that TANTOR moved to Kanto and resided there for quite some time.
  • TANTOR's face is comparable to Nathan Explosion from Metalocalypse.
  • TANTOR (via Celebi) is the first TFS Pokemon protagonist that has time-traveled.
  • TANTOR would use the Dragon Balls to get a wish granted, but he would just shout "TANTOR!!". It would summon another version of TANTOR from an alternate reality and he would either hate him ("This town ain't big enough for the  two of us!") or like him. It's hard to tell since TANTOR hates himself but at the same time is self-confident.
