Previously:
A young Cerulean accepted the invitation from the Rockets, coming on board as a junior member.
The Squad leader, Janine refused and politely bowed out, abstaining from her place at dinner.
Goldenrod, Cerulean, and Bruise feasted upon the well deserved dinner, deciding upon their favorite flavor, soon found themselves before the manic Kitty as she took up answering questions and showing them to their dorms.

Amidst a little moment between her two new friends, Cerulean noticed a flash of light break through the sky, and upon investigating it through the balcony, they witnessed a colossal bird wreathed in lightning beat thunder and rain upon the dome as it passed by.
Placed under high alert, the children were placed in a basement while older rangers handled the situation.

With no direct attack on hand, Cerulean found by next morning that the power had indeed gone out after she awoke from a mysterious dream in which she glimpsed her mother.

Dressing for mourning, she last headed to the Lavender Quarter with Bruise to seek closure from the mediums.
She now enters the strange and ghastly place that is the Lavender Spire.

Within the Lavender Spire, it is like a whole other world.

Incense spills across the floor of the room, creeping across like ghastly little fingers.
The lighting is dim, cast from candles of eerie blue flame that surround the circular room, a light above each urn that marks the memorial of a ranger that had died.

Within this place, everyone is quiet, silent as not to disturb others. Upon this floor, there is one miko that seems to attend to all the markers, dusting them off and shining the urns. Upon seeing you and Bruise enter, her face curls up into a creepy smile suddenly, brightening almost from your presence.
"First ones to enter here after the finish of the ranger test's conclusion. You have that obvious look about you. Which was the one that was your friend?
The Celadon, the Cerulean, or perhaps the Pewter?" Her robes whisk across the haze upon the floor, giving her the appearance of nearly floating with her dance-like movement. You see Bruise tense from the corner of your eye as the miko gets exceedingly close.

"You two, you are clean. Yes? Yessss." She draws out into a subtle hiss of air.

If we go ahead and wait for the rest of our friends to arrive before we mourn, I think we should ask Bruise first whether he'd want to pray for his friend privately or if he'd like to do it in a group with the rest of our friends (or if he'd rather do it with just his Pewter gym buddies; who knows, just talk it out with him).

Beyond Cerulean's inner thoughts, there's not a lot to go on. The dex lists


>Legendary- Only Elite Four should engage if possible.

as a danger level beyond S, so that implies that the Elite Four are a group intended to deal with Legendaries. People speculated that Red is some kind of fucked up Ranger monstrosity, but it could honestly be anything at this point. Wait and see is all I can say.

Mysterioooouuuuus.

But really, we have no idea what's so bad about Red. Just that he's dangerous.

As for the relationship between the Elite 4 and the Rocket Rangers; nothing, aside from the fact that they're groups of rangers who are considered above the rest. The Rockets are like the honor graduates while the Elite 4 are the best of the best.

I just had a thought you guys.
Could all our names be weird because we're given an entirely new name after our surgery to help forget about our human past?
To prevent false images of humanity from haunting our mutated mind?

Or did everyone just sit down one day and go "You know what makes the best baby name book? This artists guide to colors!"

Weird names have been a part of Pokemon forever, I wouldn't read that much into it.

"I-I'm here for the two Ceruleans that passed..." You shiver at the woman's nearness, a strange chill seems to radiate off of her. One that even you are not comfortable with.

Bruise looks to you as the woman gets right in your face, occupying your vision with her amber eyes," Ah, yes, so it is. Oliver and Risa, you loved them dearly in your own way..."

"I- what-" You begin, yet she moves on right over to Bruise, doing the same as he reflexively swings at the woman, catching nothing as she suddenly appears further away than she really was.

Bruise breathes heavily, seeming bewildered," What in the-"

"Violence is not tolerated here, so you know. Agatha's rules, not mine." The miko cackles with a certain giddiness.
"Shall we begin?"

You look around at the still empty room, and your heart resolves itself," We.. Umm.. We can wait. I'd like to wait for the others to arrive."

The Miko seems to understand, nodding her head slowly, the flickering lights catching her lavender hair.
"Understood, we will be waiting for the Cerulean ones then." She looks to Bruise, tipping her head to the side as her hair falls over her cheek.
"You. Shall we begin, or shall you await the Pewters?"

Bruise seems to think about it for a moment, closing his eyes in thought.
"I am no longer one of them. Though I respect them. I would like to say goodbye to Caiss on my own."
Opening his eyes, Bruise seems to resolve that.
The miko looks to you, her eyes dreamy, almost far away now," Would you like... to watch?" Her eyes shift to Bruise," Would you.. Mind her watching?"

>Do you watch?
>>
>>28257036

if bruise will let us.
>>
>>28257036
Mourning is a personal matter, we can watch if he wants us to but I doubt that's the case. Give him some space.

It sounds pretty creepy, besides.
>>
>>28257036
See if Bruise would let us. Maybe even pay minor respects to them after he does his, since they were rangers and part of the same class.
>>
>>28257036
I sense spooky ghost shit acomin.
Let's watch. Knowledge is power, when it's not horribly scarring us.
>>
>>28257036
god... the way she puts it is just really really creepy.
>>
>>28257036
Let's watch with him. Give him some emotional support.

That's what we specialize in, after all.
>>
>>28257036
If Bruce is sure it's okay, we would.

>>28257036
No, Bruise wanted this to be a personal send off.

>Bruise seems to think about it for a moment, closing his eyes in thought.
>"I am no longer one of them. Though I respect them. I would like to say goodbye to Caiss on my own."


>I would like to say goodbye to Caiss on my own.

Come on, dudes. Really?
>>
>>28257090
Given his wording, I don't think he wanted to be alone. Rather, because he's leaving Pewter, the poorest Gym in our region, for the Rocket Juniors, the group supplied with THE BEST, I think he may be feeling rather guilty. Maybe he thinks he's abandoning them?

If we can, we should try to convince him later on to meet with them and say his proper goodbyes. A real man shouldn't be running away from his friends.
>>
>>28257036
Leave him be.
>>
>>28257113
Ah, yeah, didn't see that. Changing my vote to let bruce do it by himself.
>>
>>28257113
>>28257152
He had to think this out, and his wording here:
>I am no longer one of them.
Seems to indicate a different reason for his decision than the one you're thinking of.
>>
>>28257113
We are letting him do it alone. We're just watching him while we wait unless he wants us not to.
>>
>>28257134
I think we may have a solution for that.

Hug him and tell him its not his fault.
>>
>>28257182
Not his fault that he's leaving?

If we get the chance to talk it out with him, we may have to push him towards facing his friends at Pewter instead of putting off talking to them or, worse, ignoring them completely. Because that never works out well.
>>
>>28257036
You're doing a good job of making them creepy as I remember.
>>
>>28257113
I think you're misunderstanding Bruise's intent. I think Bruise is really conflicted about doing this thing alone, but he'd rather that than have to face the friends he's leaving in poverty while he's going off on to become ELIIIIIITE.

I think he'd appreciate having us around. We're in the same boat as him (leaving our friends for some place "better"), so he has no reason to feel guilty around us.
>>
>>28257036
I say don't watch.
>>
>>28257036
We could ask Bruise if he'd like us to be there with him. If he says yes, let's go watch. No, then we respect his wishes.

>>28257323
Yeah this is the only reasonable way of doing it, since it's hard to really tell what his reasons are at this point.

She already asked Bruise if he minds, all we have to do is look to Bruise; we respect his privacy if he wishes, but if he looks uncertain himself, stay by his side.

>>28257366
>>28257392
Yeah, it's a nice compromise.

Curiosity pervades your mind, and you slowly nod, entranced by the woman's manner.

"She wants to, will you let her?"

Bruise looks to you, sighing and slowly nodding," Only because she's on my team."

The miko's lips pull apart to reveal teeth amidst her far off stare,"Very well, follow me upstairs, we shall be going up quite a few floors for his memorial."

As the miko turns, you feel something brush past your hair, causing you to turn. You think its Bruise, yet nothing is there, and he's ahead of you.
Pulling your arms in to cradle yourself against the unearthly chill of this place.
It doesn't help.

Yet you follow the two up the spiral-round stairs, again and again. Floor after floor. Upon each one you pass, you see someone tending to the plates, lighting incense to maintain that ephemeral fog like lilac, lavender, and violets.
None of the other women look upon you as you pass, though the entire time you feel watched. The empty rooms seem to drink up sound as every step that would echo, is instead a hollow thud.

Even the whispers of the other sparse mourners here, civilians mostly seem to have their words fall into the deafening fog that pervades this place. Yet among the eerie silent effect, you can almost hear whispers, many and profound ringing in the back of your school, unsettling you further.
Bruise seems to be in the same boat, his back visibly shaking, yet the miko seems to not be alarmed as you three make the walk.

After what seems an endless amount of stares, you arrive upon a floor with what appear to be curtains draped all around, partitioning off many small sections of the floor before the round to the next set of stairs.

So just to make getting the implants later a little less of a clusterfuck i am going to organize my/the thoughts a bit.

Assuming we don't roll 90+ and get whatever it is that Prof wants for us, then i think most have consented to Remoraids. mainly for the SUPER accuracy in not being able to miss within 300ft. So:

2 New Remoraid Guns (1 on each Wrist)
1 Remoraid Gun (Replace our mouth gun)
Cells on our knees for future Anchoring abilities
Gills on our neck
Dorsal fin on our back (Allows for added maneuverability in water and allows for suction)
Anything else?

Then again we may change our mind in the spur of the moment like /tg/ is so fond of doing.
>>
>>28257842
I don't know about a dorsal fin on our back.

Especially considering Remoraid doesn't have on and it's liable to turn into a tentacle or something.

Yeah no.
>>
>>28257842
>Guns in wrists
Man, if only we could learn String Shot.
We be spiderman.
>>
>>28257842
>mainly for the SUPER accuracy in not being able to miss within 300ft.
You think that part of the implant has something to do with our eyes?

If we replaced the water sac in our mouth, would that mean, if we evolved, we'd only be a pure Ice type?
>>
>>28257885

Caterpie-Man
>>
>>28257874
I was wondering what it would evolve into. i would prefer to keep the fin rather than get tentacles.
>>
>>28257842
We'll be needing more bladders to supply all of that water too. And I disagree with the dorsal fin, it'd be more of a hassle than you'd think. We need to keep putting our points in Icy Wind of course, ranged weaponry, and water gun.
>>
>>28257899
>if we evolved
Our Seel implant, that is.
>>
>>28257899
No? remoraid isn't ice at all. and Prof said that seels water bladder is pretty shitty and reccomended replacing it.
>>
>>28257902
I think it's safe to say pokeparts depend more on how you use them.
Except maybe legendary parts.

I do like super water gun wrists though.
Expanded water sack too, like waaaay expanded.

Also the gills are a great idea.
>>
It's still a bit early to be worrying about augs, I think, and the feasibility of planning for stuff in advance is completely up in the air. We don't really know where things are going. I wouldn't give it much thought for a while.

That said, the Dragonite line is the best Gen 1 line and it will always have my full support.
>>
>>28257903
We would get a new bladder indie each arm (i think?) or we would get them in our torso and have tubes.

How big is a water bladder?
>>
>>28257921
Yeah, and Prof also said that if we removed the water bladder before we evolved our Seel transplant, we'd be pure ice.

So my question was; if we replaced our Seel bladder with a Remoraid's and evolved the former, would we be pure Ice?
>>
>>28257946
Gills allow for future water stone hunting.

"Here we are. The mourning floor. It is here that we shall perform the ritual."

"Ritual?" You ask, a chill upon your breath to give it shape.

The Miko nods religiously," Indeed, come to my curtain, and we shall begin. As a wanted observer, you may hold the mourner's hand,m yet you may not speak."

You nod slowly, acknowkledging this, and reaching for your friend's hand, yet he draws it back,"I can.. I can do this on my own. You only need to watch." He puffs his chest out to appear tough, and the miko simply stares upon him for a few moments before seeming to float across the room with steps so light and fall upon a cushion, blue candles at either side of her.
"Come."

As the two of you sit before her, she stretches her hand out of her kimono,and swings it across the both of you, the curtain closing itself and the three of you alone in this dimly lit room.

"Now, we may begin." Her eyes glint with a surreal pulse, shortly before she locks them closed.

"Speak the name of the deceased. So long as their last moments or body is near, they call come forth."
Bruise seems uncertain now at the strange and eerie power before him, yet despite himself he steels his heart against such influences and speaks,"Caiss of Pewter."

The flames grow with a ravenous fire, splitting apart and tracing around the miko in a ring of fire as a shadow from behind her seems to grow despite the illumination.
>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKAoJ5oxfeI

As it rises up, you see a mask that appears to be a human face, a young boy, slip around before her face and drive home as she's forced back by the recoil.
Seemingly in pain, she clutches at her face as you hear a rampant cackle erupting from the woman that soon changes to the sobs of a young boy.

In moments, you no longer see the priestess before you, but a young boy with a harsh brow and stony arms and shoulders. His face is kind, and plain, though he seems surprised by what had just occurred.
>>
>>28257899
We'd still have the Water from Remoraid, and the layer of blubber and fur, webbed feet and hands, secondary eyelids, and so on from the Seel might still count it as Water.

>>28257947
Dratini are absurdly difficult to find, the dex says they're rare and long considered to only exist in myth. There's no way that we'll have access to one, and it would also fuck with our typing since we're going Water/Ice once Seel evolves, and adding a third would kill us.

>>28257982
Remoraid would make us still be Water.

>>28257982
No, he said if we removed our water parts we would become pure ice.
replacing 1 water part =/= removing water parts

"What, ah... Where am I?" He looks around, seeing the lighting and the curtains, bewildered.

Bruise's jaw drops as he looks upon the boy,"Caiss..." You see the shimmer of tears within Bruise's eyes as he cries slowly. and silently.
"You. you're really gone then, huh.. They weren't lying."

Caiss suddenly seems to understand, and his eyes go wide," Oh right.. I was... I got hit by a purple thing's horn.. My team ran away... Everything started to go black after that..."

"Your team ran?" Bruise clenches his teeth at that," They let you die alone?"
You frown at Bruise's face, that utterance alone seems to have gotten under his skin.

Caiss doesn't seem all that sad, as he scratches his cheek," Yeah, I guess they did. I'm a pewter after all, you know? We're the lowest even as rangers."
The boy smiles, "I'm glad I at least got to see you again Bruise. We were friends right?"

Bruise brings a hand to his face as he tucks his eyes away into his palm, tears streaming down despite that.

He shakes his head,"No, you shouldn't be here. You should still be with us."

Caiss frowns,"But I can't be, this woman is telling me that. I need to go after the others say goodbye."

Caiss holds out one of his stony fists to Bruise,"It was really good that you came to see me, catch you later. Or well, I guess I hope not for a while."

Bruise looks up at his lost friend, tears staining his gray skin as he looks at the literal ghost of his dead friend. With a slow nod, he returns the gesture with a fistbump.

"I'll miss you Caiss."
"I'll miss you two Bruise, keeping training hard without me."
"Goodbye."

At that last word, the form recedes back into the mask that turns back into a still face. The shadow bearing it recedes, and upon the air you hear the echo of "Goodbye" from the child."

Let's make a note to find out who was on Caiss's team. Not for revenge or anything, just to remember that they shouldn't be counted on in a pinch.

>Oh, no, we would have the water typing from remoraid.
>>28258013
>We'd still have the Water from Remoraid, and the layer of blubber and fur, webbed feet and hands, secondary eyelids, and so on from the Seel might still count it as Water.
>Remoraid would make us still be Water.

But the Remoraid implant would not have evolved with us if the Seel implant does because they're separate parts, so it would be removable. The Seel implant would become pure Ice and, after having evolved, it would become a permanent fixture in our biology.

>>28258021
>No, he said if we removed our water parts we would become pure ice.
>replacing 1 water part =/= removing water parts
You misunderstand. I'm talking about evolution and how it makes a Type permanent.
>>
>>28258029
awwwwwwwwwww
>>
>>28258029
Man...poor kid.
Wish we could do something about this caste system.
>>
>>28258086
but we can still evolve with 1 part replaced. changing 1 little thing does not get rid of all water in our seel implants.

Thick Fat
Hydration
Secondary eyelids
Webbed hands/feet

these would all need to be removed to for us to go pure ice
>>
>>28258125
Who really says we can't?

The ring of blue fire returns to the candles, and the medium seems to smile and bring her hands to her face with a look of near ecstasy.

"Wonderful. The boy has a wonderful spirit. He was glad, oh so glad that you are his friend Bruise, thank you so much for visiting him."

She giggles, despite Bruise's remaining tears and focuses her eyes upon you, their amber glimmer twinkling with delight among the spiritual flames.

"You, you should go next." She seems to realize something and leans over her pillow, staring into your eyes.

"Yes, yes, you need to go next, who is it? Give me the name. If they are close I can do it, I can show them to you again. Please, please."

You lean away instinctively, feeling a stir in the shadows beyond your sight.
The woman seems to insist absolutely on you undergoing this ritual.

these mediums have some kind of sadness fetish
>>
>>28258190
Tell her we're waiting for our friends first.

Also.

I fear that these spirit mediums may be addicted to channeling spirits. Maybe they get off on their positive feelings.

Regardless, we may want to ask the woman downstairs about it.

Some clarification would be nice on what parts would evolve into "water" for us.

Although I'd say Thick Fat wasn't one of them. I mean, really. That's obviously ice.

>>28258200
Anon, please, we're having a serious talk.
>>
>>28258190
[X] "O-okay..."

We don't have anything to lose, and if nothing else, we know this isn't going to kill us, if we have Bruise there at least.
>>
>>28258226
Nah man, don't worry about it.
Being in contact constantly with spirits of the dead probably messes with your brain. They're not...crazy. Just eccentric.
>>
>>28258190
>[] "O-okay..."
>[x] Oliver

We can talk to Oliver while we wiat for Misa.
>>
>>28258281
Some clarification would solve this. but webbed feet/hands and hydration and secondary eyelids are all obviously water.

Seeing as how Prof suggested it i think the evloution will be fine
>>
>>28258290
Bruise is powerless against ghosts.
>>28258290
They totally get off on it, either the unique power or vicarious emotions.
>>28258190
Call Oliver.
Wait for twins reunion.
>>
>>28258281
Oh I see what you're saying.

Anoon, I'm not certain, but I believe the parts 'typing' is linked solely with the beast it is from.
Aka: All seel parts are water since Seel is water.
If they evolve, all Dewgong parts are water/ice.
>>
>>28258190
Ask her if we can wait for our friends so we can see them together.
>>
>>28258325
Well, really, all I was worried about was not being Water/Ice once we've got our Seel implant evolved.
>>
>>28258300
actually this makes sense, we were a lot closer to oliver than misa. changing from this>>2825824 to this>>28258300

this
>>28258244
>>
>>28258352
No, you see, it was the Prof who suggested that if we removed the aquatic bits from our Seel implant and evolved it, it would only be Ice.

And speaking of all this made me realize that we could totally get parts from dual type pokemon safely as long as we only pick the parts that correspond with our own typing.
>>
>>28258358
i get what you're saying but the remoraid would still make us water/ice. but i see how it might screw with things a little
>>
>>28258358
The Seel part that will convert to pure ice is the Horn and the layer of blubber.

Retaining the deep breathing lung capacity will be fine.

The water bladder and webs hands/feet, and secondary eyelids, and hydration are all linked to water.

Your ice parts are solely the fat layer and the horn.

>>28258401
>we only pick the parts that correspond with our own typing.
This is so.
>>
>>28258401
Oh shit, really?
Well that is worrisome.

So as long as we have one 'water' part, we're part water then right?

Should be fine, because I'm pretty sure Hydration is water.
>>
I take it that you'd all like to call for Oliver now, and then wait for the others?

You should also notice that this medium is a bit... different.
>>
>>28258190
>[X] "O-okay..."
>>
>>28258401
aquatic =/= the water bladder

aquatic == all water parts

but there are very few ice "parts" that you can get. our horn is one of them. it is just that finding things that are soley ice will be very difficult
>>
>>28258424
Cool, thanks for the clarification Prof.

Now everyone stop talking about types until we actually get given options you weirdos.
>>
>>28258451
Yep, that seems most logical.

...wait.
different how?
IS SHE BEING POSSESSED?!

yeah she seems a little off, but lets do it anyway. lets just stay on our guard.

Bruise can always grab us and run if we need to.

Would we recognize Agatha? And did she just absorb the ghost of Caiss?

>>28258500

You haven't seen Agatha. Though you've heard she meditates at the top of the tower.
>>
>>28258451
Yeah, I was hoping she had a special message from doctor Light, but it's more likely a gengar is going to eat our soul... I still want to risk it. There are other Mediums around, they should be able to help if things go to hell.

Actually, quick someone copy this down. Makes for good pastebin notes

I'm gonna have to say no on this one.

She's just a priestess in training. And she may be failing.

>>28258510
him enumerating the aquatic parts proved my point

Ask her whats wrong first
>>
>>28258634
You should totally link your votes to Prof's vote. Because. It makes it easier to find them.

Like so:
>>28258528
I would totally be down with asking the woman why she's so excited, dawg.

>Medium Conditions:

1. The body/remains/personal effect must be near or present within a certain radius.
2. A circle must be prepared and purified. Hence the incense and circular nature of Lavender Spire
3. The deceased must have not yet moved on or have a lingering regret.

"I... Um..." You lean away from the woman as she crawls forward from her pillow, breathing heavily with the ghastly flicker of light behind her.

"Say it," She whispers, the words disappearing into the flowery incense," Just say the name and you can see him again.

Your will begins to bend as you find yourself crawling backward, scared of this woman's advance and her ghastly powers. The look in her eyes haunts you as they seem to demand something of you, demand something that you are not willing to offer.
"No-no, I- I need an adult!" A hand separates the two of you and gently pushes the manic medium back, as she struggles against his force.
"I'm not an adult," Bruise growls," But will I do?"

"No, not you, your time is done, it is hers now, I must see her friend's last moments, I must console him!" She whines aloud, squirming like some kind of eerie bitch in heat as you feel tears well up in your eyes at the thought of seeing Oliver. But through this woman? No... What is even wrong with this woman?

The curtain is cast open and a woman of raven hair and gray eyes stares down at the three of you, the medium before you growing meek at the sight.
"Lilac, how many times must you be told- Agatha has told you again and again that you are not to commune without her approval."

"B-but," She smiles, nervous, manic," Rebecca, they needed my help, the closure." She avoids eye contact.
"And th-they're rangers too. Their last moments are so-"

"Enough!" The woman pushes through, stamping between you and Bruise as you each scatter out of the way.
"You have disobeyed Agatha, this will be brought to her attention." The woman chastises the teenage Medium as she grabs her by the neck of her kimono and pulls her up, leading her out and pushing her past the curtain.
Looking back," I apologize for any rudeness our Lilac may have shown you, visitors. I will have a another medium here to assist you. Or is it already done?"
>>
>>28259306
>You will never have a crazy Miko dom feed on your pain and suffering

Bruise sighs, and pushes away the remaining wetness from his face," I'm done, my friend here is waiting for others."

Rebecca gives a swift nod," I see, very well. Please await them downstairs, I apologize for having the two of you climb twice. This matter is a fairly private affair after all."

Bruise nods, in thought,"Yeah."
You put a hand on his shoulder to comfort him,"We.. we should go now, right?"
He nods again,"Yeah."

As you leave the curtained room, you see Lilac sulking just outside, a heavy blush upon her pale face as she fiddles with her fingers," I'm sorry that I did that. I just really like helping people like this."

She bows before the two of you as Rebecca gives an appraised eyebrow.
"I just saw that the two of you were rangers, and I couldn't control myself. I... I actually really-"
"Enough Lilac, you know what Agatha has said about that. Do not trouble them further, and report to her- Now!"

Lilac straightens her back and then shuffles away in a hurry, that dance-like float from before gun as she hurries up the stairs of the tower.

"Please follow me, I shall take you down to wait..."

Thought of it as a beam originally, however a coordinated delayed snap-freeze would make more sense.

The issue of accuracy is that you won't always be able to predict where a target will be unless you lock on/mind read.

As Rebecca leads the two of you down the stairs, you can't help but feel weird about Lilac from earlier, and you begin to hope that she's not in too much trouble because of you.
Maybe you should've just let her do it. Maybe it would've been better that way?
You tug upon Rebecca's kimono and she pauses upon the stair, looking back to you.

"Hm? What is it, visitor?"
"I- I don't want Lilac to be in trouble. It's okay, she helped bruise."
Rebecca's eyes glare at you for a moment before she turns fully and brings herself to your eye level.
"Dear, it is a matter of how she is. Lilac-She," Rebecca sighs, as though something burdens her.
"Lilac is stronger than most of us at the work we do, But that strength requires control and discipline, much like your own path. Only, she does not listen and goes out of her way, dangerously.
She will be scolded, yes, but she will be working here still. Out of the mediums here, she is one of thirteen, besides Agatha upon the top of the tower."

"What about the ones at the gate? They had said that they were training."

Rebecca's eyes flicker over to Bruise and she gives an almost sad smile," They have spiritual powers as priestesses, yes. However they have not nearly the potential required to do what we others do."
Rebecca runs a hand over your head, pushing back your red hair and giving you a little kiss beside your horn,"Come now visitors. We must be moving on."

You nod,"Yes Miss Rebecca."

Alakazam could mission control for every mission at once.

Honestly they need a few Alakazams to focus on keeping the legendaries away. and to just run general mission control do MAXIMUM COORDINATION to the point where you trust the word in your head to be right so much that it is hivemind level coordination.

o man sniper plus that ice move that always crits = nice spdef boosts nerd
>>
>>28260002
we got both abilities for seel, so i dont see why wouldn't get both for this.
>>
We are watching.

We need to say goodbye to Oliver.

We need to thank him.

We need to try to hug his ghost.
>>
>>28260002
The only thing that could make it better is Clauncher.
>>
>>28260029
Oh man that would wreck shit.

Since /tg/ is bad at pokemans, crits ignore defense boosts.
>>
>>28260048
we hug him so good that he is a physically manifested ghost until we die.
>>
>>28260048
I'd just like to say that tg somehow made Seel, the lamest pokemon of first gen, into the most adorable mutant frankenbeastgirl around.

And we hug everything until it loves us.
AND IT USUALLY DOES

>>28260051
we will basically have everything a clauncher has once we get our grafts.

Resisting evo costs us Tenacity, which is basically stamina

We can't resist forever.
>>
>>28260126
i don't think the whole "learning moves at certian levels" is gonna stick with this game. because we could totally power through and learn blizzard at a low ass level, or we could ballance it like normal.

it is gonna be more xp/plot/life experience based

Man. Ash's bulbasaur was a tenacious motherfucker.

>>28260149
>Resisting evo costs us Tenacity, which is basically stamina

You'll be getting stamina as soon as I work out some costs. Going to need things to stay more interesting than deep freezing everything 4 evur once you all evolve Dewgong.

>>28260154
> learn blizzard at a low ass level,
That's so, if you push Icy wind enough it could even turn into blizzard.

this combined with this>>28260154

the whole level system deosn't work with our exp distribution system

Yeah I think you might need to nerf Sheer Cold a bit, especially when potentially combined with Lock-On.
>>
>>28260180
If we're pumping Icy Wind could that also get us Frost Breath if we focus on trying to originate it from out mouth?

>>28260175
For no goddamn reason.
But I can't hate, Bulbasaur was metal as fuck.

>>28260180
>Gotta stop you from deep freezing everything
Well, I'm picturing we'll eventually fight other Rangers, so that should help that.
But I get what ya mean. Water has a cap to how many times we can use it too.

>>28260199
That's not wise man.

It's our best power, but for now, let's keep it even. Develop our speed a bit, and agility. Want to keep us away from foes.

Not that it'd matter if we got chased by a Primeape, or a Arcanine.
But you know.
>>
>>28260226
we probably wont be able to spam it
>>
>>28260245
It'll be our nuke, basically. Maybe 2-3 a mission, if we develop it well

There's a reason pokemon games had PP
>>
>>28260264
Lets wait for Profs new system before that. but we do know our water bladders will stay the same
>>
>>28260293
We might get better Water Bladders if we go Remoraid, Seel's Bladder isn't all that impressive, Remoraid's is probably a lot better.
>>
>>28260317
he said that seel bladders were shit-tier.

and i imagine Remoraids are gonna be top tier.

sooo.... maybe 10+ per bladder?
>>
>>28260347
Or 25.
Because Water Gun PP
I keed. 10 would be nice though.
>>
>>28260359
im hoping for 12
>>
>>28260347
and we want 3 bladders right? damn we will be like a machine gun cannor sniper machine gun
>>
>>28260383
Speaking of Machine Gun, I actually wanted us to practice alternating our shots to hit multiple targets.

Spend one blast of water gun to hit maybe 5 enemies, push them back. Useful for fleeing.
>>
>>28260383
1 on each arm and 1 in our mouth

so 30+

but that isn't really that high for any kind of serious mission if you consider we use 5-10 per fight
>>
>>28260412
Not to mention it's just water gun.

Not like it's super OP or anything, even upgraded to max.
>>
>>28260396
water gun isn't AOE. it is a precise shot.

icy wind is though, so is bubble beam.

bubble mines
>>
>>28260427
>Not like it's super OP or anything, even upgraded to max.

It would convert to hydro pump.
>>
>>28260427
Water Gun upgraded to max becomes Hydro Pump or Hydro Cannon for Marine.
>>
>>28260383
>cannon
That is not a cannon
bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Clawitzer_(Pokémon)
This is a cannon
>>
>>28260441
You seem to have a fetish for clawlitzer.

hydro pump can do that anyway
>>
>>28260441
i want clawhitla as much as you buddy but i doubt giovanni is gonna be givin us gen 6 implants
>>
>>28260437
Shit, why don't we have bubblebeam again?
That move is really good. Also stuns.

>>28260438
>Implying Hydro Pump is OP
I imagine it'd cost more water too.
If not, then...well yeah, I could see it being more powerful. I think Hydro Pump does 120 damage in game...so probably lots here.

Fair enough, should upgrade Icy Wind AND Water gun.
>>
>>28260441
>Can propel itself at 70mph
>>
>>28260441
clawlitzer is in pokeamercia.

we are in pokejapan
>>
>>28260483
Gen 5 was America, Gen 6 is France.
>>
>>28260438
Since our arms aren't all that huge could we focus on extremely high pressure in a thinner stream of water to be more efficient and so we can cut things with high pressure water?
>>
>>28260469
the less water you use and the more you concentrate it the stronger it gets.

>>28260475
70mph is nothing
>>
>>28260530
>Cutting with water
Huh. You know, I somehow forgot that people do that. I take it back, Water Gun is great.
>>
>>28260514
so even farther.

gens 1-4
>>
>>28260467
>>28260483
I know but I want it so bad.
>>28260463
I probably do but can you blame?
>>
>>28260558
I know, it's totally awesome.

And once we have the suckers we can anchor ourself down so even if the force of the Water Gun would knock us back we maintain a steady firing position.
>>
>>28260438
Damn it, I hope you run a Part 2 to this thread.
We got so little done ;~;
>>
>>28260571
No I can't. I think it has the strongest SpA of any non-legendary/mega water type, plus Mega Launcher.
>>
>>28260597
You met a potentially important character, so long as you follow up on her.
>>
>>28260588
>Anchor
Useful when we're by ourselves I guess...but why don't we just get Bruise to hold and aim us like a firehose?
I'm sure he can handle it.

>>28260625

After hanging out in the first floor of the Lavender spire for some time, you see people begin to drift in, a group of Celadons, Leif, Bridgette, a bandaged girl, and their leader Erika they are escorted by a Medium in waiting to the communion floor.

You notice a strange perfume as they pass, none of them make eye contact, likely in prep for what's to come.
No one warned you.

Twiddling your thumbs and trying to think of what you'll say to your friend when you see him. You don't come up with much.

Bruise seems to get nervous after seeing the Celadons. He must think that the Pewters are going to show.

It's to his relief that you see the Ceruleans next:

All in Black, Misty Wears a Black Halter that lets her fin wings through, contrasting nicely against her mottled black, red, and white skin
Marine wears her own, fitting over her shell armor.
Misa however went so far as to wear a mourning veil to hide her face.
Bryan's here as well, a vacant stare in quaint black clothes, and then Aqua, seeming uncomfortably out of place, his eyes shifting away as he sees you awaiting.

The Cerulean group is greeted by a Rebecca and she gestures you and Bruise over, yet as you rise, you notice that Bruise remains sitting upon his stone bench.

"Come on Bruise, let's go." You whisper to him quietly as the others await.
He shakes his head,"I can't, you go up alone. They'll be there for you. They were your team."
You frown to him among the dusky ambiance,"But.."
"Go."

You feel that there's no convincing him otherwise. You fall in with the others, and ascend the staircase, a silent procession.

>>
The medium before you sits upon the pillow as Lilac did before, the candles enshroud her in their azure flame, you notice however, that compared to Lilac, its unstable. There's a shakiness to the flame.

Her voice billows with ritual,"Visitor, Tell me the first name."

Misty leans over to Misa,"You would like to speak to her alone, yes?"
Misa chokes, holding back her tears and nods beyond her veil.

"Oliver of Cerulean."

The shadow lurches from behind the woman, the mask of the dead ranger being adorned upon her face like before.
As it's pressed to stick, you hear a shrill cry as the Medium's body is overtaken by the spirit, soon settling into the panicked screams of a voice you recognize.
Oliver.

The form takes hold, ephemeral and shaky, as the woman is overtaken by the spirit of your friend, frenzied breathing betraying what could have been his last moments.
"Where am- I-" He pauses for a moment as he seems to hear something. Looking down, he seems to kind of smile, yet then frown,"I knew this would happen."

"Oliver," You frown, feeling your eyes tear up already, shaking your head," No, no Oliver..."

>Anything you'd like to say?
>>
>>28260774
I meant since we're approaching page 5 n' all.
Call me paranoid.

>>28260786

I don't see why people care so much about what Page we're on, most everyone is already here so there is nothing to worry about until we hit Page 10

>>Anything you'd like to say?
Thank you Oliver for saving me.
(we did nearly drown right?)

"Oliver. *RESOLVE* Please be at peace Oliver. Please, and...and don't worry about me. You saved me twice but I'll be strong. Strong for you. Strong to remember you. You were wrong about not always being around to save me. You're in here *holds chest* you're in all of us, and we'll never forget you,"

You try to wipe away your tears but they just keep coming, you get the sense that Oliver's looking at you, and no one else has spoken yet.

"Thank you Oliver," You voice creeps out, like a mouse at first, so you repeat it again," Thank you so much."

"You're welcome Cerulean. I said I wouldn't always be there to save you, right? Worst thing to be right about, I guess."

You feel a hand on your shoulder from Marine, and then another from Aqua. Risa begins to sob near you.
Bryan hasn't seemed to notice the ghost yet.

Misty bites her lip, holding back her tears,"Bryan, you were a good kid, you would've made a great ranger."

The ghastly visage of your friend smiles and shakes his head slowly,"No, I wouldn't have. I'm dead after all. Being here, and seeing you cry means that this woman is right. Everyone dies eventually, I always thought it'd be because of the messed up skin I got."
He seems to look down at his hands, yet they aren't there with his dissipating phantom form,"Seems we're running out of time. I was alone, and you all gave me a place."

He rubs away at his eye, pushing a tear away,"Marine, you keep up with the pewters, you're strong and thick as that shell. I envy that."
Marine bawls openly," I'm sorry, I wish, I wish I could've been in that part to help you."
"Aqua, that gem of yours is great. Work hard on it, and you'll live longer than I did."
Your friend chokes at Oliver's word, putting his head down.
"Misa... Where's Risa?"
"She's gone to Oli... Risa's gone too." The surviving sister cries into her hands, her goldeen horn upon her right fist glinting in the spooky light.
"I'll kill enough of these stupid monsters for you too, okay?"

Oliver frowns sadly," You'll just die faster that way."

"Shut up!" Misa shoves her hands over her ears,"Shut up, shut up, shut up..." She mumbles.
>>
Oliver's form begins to fade further away, and you reach out for him, touching his shoulder, more words to say upon your mind, yet at that. He smiles and fades away entirely.

"Goodbye" hangs upon the still air as he vanishes. The Medium's eyes flicker, as she comes back to her senses, breathless.

"A moment please, it's hard to concentrate when we make contact. Please do not do that in the future..."

You feel guilty, as though you ruined it for everyone, yet as the tears run down your face, you see that no one is blaming you as the Medium takes a moment to collect herself.

"Please Speak the next name."

Misty touches Misa's shoulder, so that she uncovers her ears," Its your turn Misa, say goodbye."

Everyone save for Misa files out of the curtained room.

You hear another scream followed by the death throes of Risa as you walk further away, tears still running down your face, yet you manage to smile, even if only a little one.

Saying goodbye. This is a sad, but very special place.

Lilac would help round our team out as we have a

fighting = body (bruise)
so we need a ghost type to be the soul.

The Elite Four are known.

Lance the Dragon
Lorelei the Frozen
Bruno the Breaker
Agatha the Spirit

Only Agatha resides in Kanto City. The others are all on extended missions beyond the dome.

>>28261694
Nah she's alright. She has Agatha, a far FAR wiser person then us.
Our hugs are mighty, but not that mighty.
Yet.
We can hug her later.

Uh, no need to rush!
I don't mind waiting for well written stuff, heh.

Yeah, but I pretty sure none of the elite 4 have less than 2 pokemon. Except Agatha, who may or may not have any.
>>
>>28261694
We know that she'll be fine-ish from what the other woman said. Really, we're too shaky to meet with her now.

But we could totally come visit again. We've got a free week of rest until ROCKET TRAINING begins.

Agatha is the only one without any augments. She's regarded as a sort of living myth.

Unless you evolve into the type, you cannot be augmented with ghost type pokemon parts. Because. They're ghosts.

Mediums are special like psychics, but rarer and their powers more mysterious.

Trying to figure out what Lance would even look like.

Pretty sure he has 3 Dragonites, but other than that he could have Gyarados, Aerodactyl, Charizard, or dragons from other gens.

Not sure if Charizard or Gyarados would be cooler.

I don't understand your response. Why the but? What about my post are you contradicting?

You need to be a medium. I don't care if Agatha eats ghosts, because that's not really the same thing as implanting ghost parts into a ranger's body. Gotta evolve into that. Or maybe embed a possessed object into yourself. Maybe.
>>
>>28261978
...didn't the pokemon movie clarify that Dragonite's wings expand in size when he flies?

I don't...know if that was a real thing though. Maybe just movie bullshit.
>>
>>28261987
But ghosts may be entirely different from pokemon. Maybe they have to consume or drain the powers of a ghost since implants don't work.

I just feel like ghosts in this setting are different than regular pokemon
>>
Proceeding downstairs, you only tell your old gym-mates about your "promotion" once you've arrived at the first floor.

"No way.." Marine utters her disbelief.

Misty congratulates you, though your two friends seem to be a bit down over the whole thing.
You assure them that you'll still be training in Cerulean when you have free-time, though at the thought of that, you remember the icy dream of your mother, in which the lake was frozen.
The thought hangs in your mind for a moment, before you push it back.

Claiming to be fine, you trade hugs with your two childhood friends. Surely you'll see them in the future. You're not moving away from them. Just adding on bigger things, right? Yeah, that's right.

You hug Bryan goodbye, as he returns the gesture, he looks around to the others," Hey, where's Oliver, he was just here, wasn't he?"
You cry into his shoulder at that, and he just kind of pats your head,"There, there Cerulean. It's alright. I miss Oliver too. He'll be back soon. He was a good friend, always looking out for you. I think he liked you. He never said it, but I'm sure he did."
Bryan slowly pets at your red hair as you weep more openly.

"Bryan, Oliver's dead. Risa too." Misty touches his shoulder, gently.

He's quiet for a moment as he holds you in his arms,"Oh. I knew that, I guess." Bryan's grip around you tightens a bit as the boy begins to sob, his body shaking," I just didn't want to believe it. You know?"

The Cerulean members share a moment together just like that.

Bruise eventually places a hand upon your shoulder and whispers into your ear," It's time to go."
With a last goodbye, you leave with your new team-member, feeling a little wrong about the whole thing... At least you said goodbye.

Dexter entries are true. Movies are generally filled with director bullshit

And implants don't work because there are no implants.

The Frosslass implant Prof mentioned was only supposed to unlock one's spiritual potential as a medium.

Then I don't know what the hell you're arguing about. Why do you think Agatha doesn't have implants?

Why do you think she does?
Mediums are unrelated to rangers. Ranger are the only ones that receive implants.

>>28262183
I think she does.

I think she did something when she "chased" out all those ghosts

Not just that. Let's really make it a point to go see our friends as much as we can. 3 people died and we're still in training. It's entirely possible that there are people in our little group right now that we'll never see again after this moment.

Just think, the longer we're a ranger, the less of our friends will be alive. It's only a matter of time until the people we trained with and befriended are dead.

We need to spend as much time with our friends as we can. We can't afford to lose training time, but we'll regret it if we lose touch with our friends and they die. Because it's going to happen sooner or later.
>>
>>28262225
Oops. Made a mistake there. I was the one arguing that she doesn't have implants. Other guy was arguing for the opposite.

>>28262226
Yeah. She used her powers. As a medium.

What does that reasoning even have to do with her having implants at all?
>>
>>28262240
>that pic
What the fuck is with her legs. They look like fucking pony hoofs.
>>
>>28262240
Or we can begin distancing ourselves now, so that it doesn't hurt when they die.

But why would we want to do that, anon. There's the rub.
>>
>>28262245
It said she became like she was after she chased out a bunch of ghost monsters from her church.

I'm just saying that monsters are incredibly valuable as well as dangerous. And she had exclusive access to them all.

___________________________________

Back at the Rocket dorms, you share a light lunch with Bruise as the other training rocket members come back from the end of their training.
Your stomach doesn't hold up to the food, despite how good it is, the events from earlier taking their toll on you.
Everything tastes bland to you right now.

"Cerulean, I know that it's hard to deal with things like this. I'm dealing with them myself but..." He swallows,putting a knuckle into his temple,"We gotta fight on for them, you know? We've gotta keep things like that from happening to people. I can count how many people I'd consider real friends by the fingers on my hands.
The people we need to protect..." He flexes his fingers before himself," By the number of scars on my fists."
Slamming them down into the table, he makes it crack, silencing the other rockets.

Amidst the stunned silence, everyone stops eating and talking, Bruise stands up, looking over them,"We've gotta protect people, ya know?! We gotta train hard as hell to make sure people don't die!" He flexes a fist, the bones in his hands cracking from the intensity before her sweeps it across is body," Because what does it mean if we screw up? The ones we care about, the ones we trained with, we see them in the Lavender spire! Creepy freaking ghost place! Forget that!"

Bruise throws himself back into his seat, brows furrowed and arms crossed," Man, this just freaking sucks. I hate it."

His little speech is true though, and you nod, at that.

Some of the Rockets clap, seems like he's made a few friends.

> Anything to add to that speech?
>[] Nah, that was Bruise's.

>>28262293
>[] Nah, that was Bruise's.
hard to see why he doesn't have more friends that was charismatic as fuck.
>>
>>28262289
I think the implication was that she was already a medium before that event. She became what she is NOW after chasing them out.

And that really has nothing to do with her having implants. Where's your logic? All you're doing is offering me up "proof" without explaining how they connect to your idea.

>>28262293

Oh gosh in just realized.

Our mother is going to be killed by Articuno right in front of us as the dome is destroyed in their fight.

We need to roll a 100 on stopping their fight and befriending Articuno.
>>
>>28262405
M-m-maybe we could stop it from happening.

>>28262434

But Cerulean always crits on rolls having to do with cuteness and hugging.

It's a safer bet this way.
>>
>>28262434
...were you the one suggesting that we should roll to seduce Articuno?

I was getting the feeling that as our mother is way off at the Indigo Plateau, we weren't going to see her for a long while. Like meeting her would be one of the last things we'd do.

You let Bruise have his moment, clapping with the others.

It was a short speech, but it was passionate. The stubborn, unrelenting force that is Bruise- that is your squad-mate.

"Say, uh. Where's Goldenrod anyway? Kitty said to meet up with her about this time, right?" Bruise checks around the place, frowning as his scan turns up exactly nothing.
You shrug,"I don't know, I thought he'd be waiting for us here.."

Bruise sighs, pinching the bridge of his nose,"Oh, right, right. He has to sleep a lot, right?"

You recall when he went out like a light in the wood, and nod,"Uh, huh, yeah. Grumpy's pretty sleepy after all."

"Well, it must be part of his implants. Speaking of which-" Kitty falls upon your table, resting on her side, wood from Bruise's hit groans in pain under her weight.
"Means you'll be looking over possible implants without him then. Giovanni wants to know what you three want so that you can get put under and out of surgery ASAP. We were worried that we'd need to postpone it with that monster from last night."

The mention sends a shiver down your spine, the bad kind.

"What about it?" Bruise tenses.

Kitty rolls her eyes at the boy," It knocked out some of our generators. Big ol' kabooms from the overload. Vermillion's Surge is pretty pissed, but we've got enough back up power for the research institute and hospital's facilities. Civilian power is still down though, of course." Kitty's claw suddenly flicks and Bruise touches his face, wincing at a trickle of blood.

"What was that for?!" He scowls at the lady. as she points to his eyes and then to her own.
"Eyes up here, lover boy."
"I, wha-" Bruise's gray blushes into a dark red as kitty points to her ears.
"Feline hearing, stay on track, or we'll have problems."
Bruise nods at that, and Kitty flexes herself into standing,"Follow me, we've got a list for you to look over of what we've got stocked.

Well, considering one of Alakazam's moves is Future Sight, he'd probably be able to predict everything we'd say and do before we do it.

That's why it's IQ is so high, it needs it to use Psychic, and Psybeam and all that shit.

Fair enough. It's limited to like, an hour in the future or something right?

What the fuck man why would you do that to my brain.

>>28262987
He can't just sit around and not use his powers. Other than the brain, Alakazam's body is such shit that it can't function. It puppets the meatsack around with psychic powers. It'd die if it didn't use TK to hold its head upright and keep its neck from snapping.
>>
>>28263001
Well, we were all pretty reasonable about these sorts of things in Prof's previous quest. Debates existed, but we could accept the results of the votes for upgrades fairly well enough. Let's hope that remains a constant here.

>>28263087
Froslass doesn't even have a decent moveset.

And the way I heard the QM explain it, it's not like she'd make us immune to normal and fighting attacks like other ghost-type pokemon.
>>
What would a snorunt implant even look like? It's the "snow hat pokemon". Would we just have our hair replaced by that hat hood thing that makes up its body?
>>
>>28263192
New thread for anyone who hasn't seen it.
>>
>>28263185

Froslass has a great moveset for ice-sweeping with blizzard + hail or being an absolute bitch with Thunder wave + Confuse ray.
I made a poor soul by pairing it with a Rest+sleeptalk goodra that knew blizz and dragon tail.
>>
>REMORAID SELECTED
>>
>>28263215
I wonder, would Frostlass ghost typing actually count toward the 2 type limit?
>>
>>28264680
and it only took 2 hours

>>28264685
Awakens Medium potential. Ghost types do not add, and froslass is potentially the only way to do it, as they cannot be grafted.
>>
>>28264680
Great, this thread isn't dead!

We don't have to archive the shit storm!

Hooray!

Cause in this universe ghost isn't type but something that can be awoken in humans

I love it when the ballot doesn't describe the choices well.
Can't believe I voted for the fucking fish, but I though Prof was disregarding the "just don't become a dragon and keep the water parts" path...

>>28263215
Just so you know, I still think monhun monsters are cool and encourage you to use them.
>>
>>28264698
And you didn't tell us this before why? Ghost types are the shit
>>
>>28264698
So we could get a snorunt implant and then evolve it to awaken medium potential? Cool.
>>
>>28264715
If it makes you feel better, the vote was apparently not even close

>>28264716
Same, just no Mary sue monster. Not that this one was but still.

But I'm hesitant about new water/ice types
>>
>>28264715
there there, it's okay. I'm the same way. but it is best we live with the decision.
>>
>>28264722
we also get a free 2hu hat out of it!
>>
>>28264722
That's why people are so keen on Snorunt.

I'm not sure how that'd work out for us, but it'd certainly be interesting.

>>28264746
Imagine if we unlocked our medium potential and then... We saw our mother.

But first we would have to get to hoenn, then avoid the scary as fuck goalie, then nab a snorunt, the government all the way to generate 4, then find a dawnstone

>>28264845
I might need to rethink this

It has a body of ice that won't melt, even with fire. It can instantly freeze moisture in the atmosphere.

GLALIE has the ability to freely control ice. For example, it can instantly freeze its foe solid. After immobilizing its foe in ice, this POKéMON enjoys eating it in leisurely fashion.

This thing is the stuff of nightmares

then we earned some.

Basically we had 0 knowledge of pokemon.

After considering your options carefully with the instruction of Professor Hemlock on what each creature can do and morph into, your eyes fell uppon Cryten for the longest time, sure for a moment that it must be a gift from your mother, though with a smile you touch the glass, looking over the furry little thing with razor sharp teeth protruding from its maw.

Looking at the thing for a time, you note the way that its lungs breath in and out ever so slowly...

Then the snap of fangs as a frozen maw attempts to close upon your face sends you back, away from the glass as more spores drop in, forcing the thing into a deeper slumber.

With your heart a pitter patter, you resolve to look at the other options.

No way you'd put an eevee in you. They're pets, they're one of the few monsters that don't seem quite so bad. No.

The fish slumbering within a powder-filled tank seem like a good bet. There's a few of them and Prof. Hemlock declares that they are from Hoenn, known for their accuracy at shooting prey out of the water.
You're slow compared to Bruise, and even Goldenrod with his ability to teleport.
But you could shoot. You could learn how to shoot.

Heck, they're pretty small too, not even that bad.
"This one, I'd like these."

"Very well young Rocket, we will prep you for surgery right away." Hemlock nods, jotting down a few notes upon a pad of paper before looking at Bruise.
"And none for you, right?"
Bruise looks at the enclosures, his eyes shining with some thought hidden,"That's right. I'm good with what I've got.."

Hemlock nods,"As I've thought. Goldenrod, he is not here, yes?" Before either of you respond, he writes something else down," Likely sleeping, we will call him later, perhaps to take care of that."

I will allow this to be asked for as they will not be performing surgery on him.
However it will require a charm roll, and increase the difficulty of the surgery roll.

If it is top 3 and this is the highest can we make our argument more convincing through the use of logic.

Both of them work well with us, we are unlikely to obtain either of them in this region again so putting it off is not much of an option, both grafts fit our biology so rejection is less of an issue, between Rest and Hydration we are far better at recovering from surgery than most other recruits.

That ought to sway them a bit.

Fuck you Prof.

Fucking fuck you and your shitty petty passive-aggressive bullshit because we didn't pick your fucking OC.

Tenacity may be spent upon the operating table.

5 tenacity per crit-fail to soldier through.

Professor, instead of ending the quest on a low note, may I suggest planar traveling.
>>
>>28265145
Do we look like we have much of a choice?

Crit fails mean rejection, which is fucking terrible, or death.

Looks like we're out of commission for a while as we hopefully get our fighting spirit back.

Spend 10.

10. It hurts to say, but spend 10. ;_;

>>28265165
Yeah, we've spent it before. We've gained more than 10 over the course of the quest already.

We have 16 though.

So we will be at 6

>lose 10 tenacity

So basically what happened here is we've been severely shaken and took the surgery super harsh.

We're going to be sitting in a wheelchair looking at the ocean for a while.
>>
>>28265145
>>28265169
Prof, don't make me cry, damnit. I'm already crying for the failures. Don't make me cry from the feelings you're giving me.

>>28265158
>>28265178
Euuuuugh. Emotions are running pretty high now. Hopefully everyone will simmer down by next time.
>>
>>28265169
...Yeah I'm going to call bullshit on that.

Good to know you feed on anger and despair like most QMs though.
>>
>>28265178
We still have 6 left
>>
>>28265169
You're supposed to expect low rolls. Y'know, never have your players roll for anything you can't handle them failing.

Unless you're Program0. His players are high priests of the dice gods.
>>
Ha! Ha! Even if we didn't up the difficulty, we'd still have failed the surgery roll.

Everyone chill.
>>
>>28265196
>>28265196
Imagine if we lose our legs.......
>>
>>28265196
No, we will just be in bed for most of the week.

We had 16.

a pep talk from bruise will fix things
>>
>>28265196
>We're going to be sitting in a wheelchair looking at the ocean for a while.
We'll heal better inside the water, though.

>>28265169
WILL we heal better inside the water? Because we're going to need to recover from this.

Also, I'm wondering if our surgery's outcome will have any effect on Goldie?
>>
>>28265103
>>28265107
Any chance we can use retroactively turn on Devil's Luck?
>>
>>28265196
Not really all that surprising.
>multiple friends die
>Get spooked hard
>Sweet talk the doctor into doing super intense surgery on us
Yeah...
>>
So...burning tenacity.
Does that mean our operation succeeds moderately?

Or that we fail terribly, but at least don't die?
>>
>>28265217
Those were the good times. Less arguing then too.
>>
>>28265196
At most, I think we will probably have a few close calls in surgery, and then be in bed for a week.
>>
>10 Tenacity spent
>90 taken
SURGICAL SUCCESS
>>
>>28265224
I don't even care at this point.
>>
>>28265216
Technically we got a 94 on the surgery roll.

We just got depression instead
>>
>>28265224
I think it cancels the failing rolls which would give us a 90 and a 94
But I might be totally wrong here
>>
>>28265224
It's a regular success, but we take the penalty later from not having our Tenacity stat add to our rolls where it factors in.

We didn't get depression, though.

More like.

We went through what the poison girl from the first thread experienced. But instead of rejecting the implants, we accepted them by force of will.

It's ok. I can sleep in bursts inbetween the mgnq updates.

Typing this out, it's just hit me how pathetic this sounds.

So...we take a risky surgery, and spend our SUPER TOUGH GURL stat to get a great roll at it.

Are...are we a rocket now?

Boy am I glad I decided to wait till winter break to pick that up.

>>28265283

We're a rocket.

I think we just learned how J&J survived all those pikachu shocks. PURE MOTHERFUCKING TENACITY.

I'm betting on inability to walk for at least a week.

Shooting for a month as optimal bet.

I deemed 15% of my grade an acceptable loss.

Hey prof, you gonna give a nice visual description of new Ceru after the operation?

Cause I wanna do a pic of her in a wheelchair all bandaged up with TENACIOUS underneath. Would go nice with the ELITE pic.

>>28265320
Nah, we'll be fine. Just kinda shaken.

>>28265321
I was just talking about you.
>>
>>28265320
Then we need to float around in a pool being adorable
Possibly in Cerulean gym

>>28265300
Why did I just imagine Giovani in a speedo dancing to a song called you're a rocket now while james and kitty dance around with fans too further draw attention to his girth
>>

yes, I want a description of how we look now.
What kind of horrible monster we are.
>>
>>28265331
Why would she be in a wheelchair?
>>
>>28265321
I remember you from the qtg. I'm the guy that accidentally all of his math online HW last semester.
Still got a B, but fuck. Coulda got a 99 for the class.
>>
>>28265303
>That's.... Actually kinda badass
'Course, the side effect is that we exhausted our mental reserves. We'll be incurring penalties for a while on rolls that incorporate tenacity, so we'll need to slowly build up our inner strength for a while.

Maybe Bruce could help. They might have thought some meditating techniques at Pewter gym, based on how a large portion of their style is focused on taking hits and hitting back even harder. We could meditate while floating in the water. Well, this is something to discuss at a different time.

Also, since Bruise will probably stay with his own implant for the rest of the story, I'm hoping we kit him out TO THE MAX.
>>
>>28265342
Because now we can't stop imagining it and you're a monster?
>>
>>28265340
I have no problem with floating around in a pool being adorable while we recover. Shallow side only though.

With wheelchair breaks.
>>
>>28265342
Because you can't ignore Giovanni's girth.
You can't.
>>
>>28265347
Because she just got double surgery, double failed it, and only forced it to succeed through not manly willpower.
