Opening theme>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F468us4qCUEPreviously:A young rocket faced off against a friend that had since changed, his mother allowing a private audience. With strength failing, her eyes close upon his aloof visage.Awakening in the hospital once again. The Ranger realizes that she really shouldn't have been so careless on taking that walk. Having forgotten something important, she continues on unaware.Another friend is visited again at a lake from three months training. He bears out his concerns for the future and his thoughts to stray from the path as a defender. Fear pervades his mind from the green wood. A cold embrace is shared, his choice uncertain.Visiting an old and eerie acquaintance with a fighter, the young rocket finds a new friend among the dead and gone. Yet this friend's concern lied in the fact that she was forbidden to leave her residence at the Lavender Spire.The young rocket promises to visit this one again, another friend to cherish after all.Her official training as a rocket begins.Known characters>http://pastebin.com/kMb9UFFwMonster Index>http://pastebin.com/wxwgrCqbCharacter Sheet>http://pastebin.com/7CJx3gq1Twitter:>https://twitter.com/AoPHquest
>>28458817>Her official training as a rocket begins.oh yeah, its time.
Alright. Bear with me. Large writeup incoming with little minisodes.Also: MONTAGE MUSIC!I believe this is appropriate.>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CevxZvSJLk8
>>28458882I wonder how hard is rocket training when compaired to regular ranger training.
>>28458817dump professor. Dump. DUMP. I want to read. I NEED to read.
Since we have a single point of XP left should we spend it?
>>28458929The lyrics are actually pretty appropriate.
>>28458965no. move on.
>>28458935well we are doing roxket training and half of the non-rocket training
>>28458929>>28458969You are gonna hear me PURRR~~.
Rolled 86>>28458817IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN!Captain reporting in!
>>28458996You're gonna hear me hug~~~alternatively, for GrumpyYou're hear me spoon~~~~
>>28459019we are Kitty Purry
>>28459010Woah, now, woah. Reserve the dice rolls for later.>>28459041Wonderful.
First day of training you were introduced to the Rocket method, a mesh of training ranging from amphibious preparatory combat that you had been so used to. Over to weighted runs that the pewters would do that you were in fact not, and full body calisthenics that the veridian pride themselves on, with more to come in the future.This was all to be the best though, and you couldn't bring yourself to fail.Kitty told everyone from that day that training would be hard, and that you'd all be given chances and the assistance you all need to improve. However all recruits are allowed to drop the Rocket program at any time to return to standard ranger training should it prove too difficult.Bruise of course, was unphased. Goldenrod though? He appeared a little worried, though he hid it well.Between the other recruits, you could tell who had been there longer.Devon could keep up with the training like a pro, not as well as Kitty as she went through everything with you, but well enough to stand out. He'd give you a nasty look, a smug smirk.Yet despite that, he began to give you tips and pointers here and there, an upperclassmen to a lowerclassmen you guessed.Jeremy was the other one that you could tell had been here longer, though only by a margin as he seemed to be in pain so often. Whenever you looked at him though, you got a little reminder of Oliver, your dead friend.This one didn't speak very much, though when he did, it was often to complain about his throbbing headache during training.Kitty never paid him much mind, as when the others complained, she'd threaten that they should quit now, because it only gets harder.You never complained.Grumpy did.
>>28458929You should stop being a tease and post the Glorious montage now.
>>28459041Oh god. I can imagine Ceru pulling on his 'stache everytime he acts grumpy to set him straigh.
>>28459088I love you anon.
>>28459069Grumpy, nooooo. Cerulean being a trooper as always.
>>28459121He won't quit, I think. He's just gonna mouth off.For an entire year.
>>28459041Talk about twisted spoons
>>28459069Didn't grumpy get decent rolls though?
>>28459149He critfailed.Bruise almost did too, but he powered on through.
>>28459149No, he critfailed. Bruise got a 99 though, that's probably who you're thinking of.
>>28459138i read that as>You never quit.>Grumpy did.
>>28459041>>28459069Oh hey, Prof. What color is Goldenrod's hair? Since he's got yellow fuzz all over his body, I assume his hair may have also gradually turned yellow?
grumpy cannot into calisthenics.We should suggest to him that he try cheating and moving his body with his powers.Alakazammode
>>28459178It's green, I was just too lazy to color that one in. Most everything I try to color ends up looking even worse.
It started with being told that he's required to run without his powers, reminding you of the cross-training obstacle course. He scowled at that, of course, light and weak as he is.You tried to give him some words of encouragement, that he'd get better, that he'd be able to get through this with you and Bruise.Yet he just looked at you, saying,”What do you know? Repulsive fish.” As always, his words did sting, but not as much as him avoiding you did.For the first month, he'd also change his place during runs to be away from you.In the second. As he began to fall behind in the evaluations he stopped speaking to you entirely.And as soon as noon hit, sure as anything, he'd be gone for elsewhere, alone.Of course, you would've tagged along, had it not been him teleporting away.Bruise worried about him too, yet he had his own issue, determined to become a full fledged rocket.While he knocked out physical challenges one after the other, he faced challenge with resistance training. When it came to withstanding the elements, Bruise realized just how far he would have to go to correct his fatal flaw. For as much as great his physical feats amounted to, he struggled against this, often passing out, or being forced to bow out during the sessions and spars.As part of a rocket's training, as Kitty explained, you were to become an all rounder, capable of dealing with nearly any situation with our without the help of your team. While gym members specialize and optimize their techniques, Rockets are expected to achieve such expertise and carry it into all areas.They could not be bound by their limits.Neither would Bruise. Over time, through sheer grit, he would push through the exercises and chipped away at his weakness with resolution. You and Kenn were there every step of the way for him.The bird-ranger sympathizing as he bore with the same difficulty.
>>28459088I thought Cerulean had green eyes? Of course, seeing as how her eyes had been replaced with the Crytten's......>>28459193Green hair on yellow fuzz? Seems kind of a wonky color combination.I was just asking if his hair color had changed because of his implant, though.
As days turned to weeks, and weeks to months, in your training, you visited Fuschia gym to train with Janine, to round yourself off as Kitty had said.The kunoichi, as Koga's granddaughter, assisted you directly, her every move practiced and planned from her walk, her expression, her bowed, and even her tone. She's a completely different person upon her clan grounds.Welcoming you everyday in an entirely too formal manner, you began to reciprocate her gestures out of respect as you discipline yourself, learning their ways and their art of close quarter combat.The lessons baffle you at first with how they misdirect, redirect, and get in so close while seeming so far.Leader Koga, or in this case, Master Koga, watches over the two of you. His hidden face reveals nothing, and Janine seems to detect your concern.>Achieved Close Quarter Combat: rank 2>Achieved thrown weapon training rank 1 at this point.
>>28459204How many rocket recruits are there? including us.
>>28459204Damn it Grumpy. We're going to have to hunt you down and give you hugs.
>>28459213>Of course, seeing as how her eyes had been replaced with the Crytten's......That was my thinking. Light blue made them seem icier.>I was just asking if his hair color had changed because of his implant, though.Pastebin still says light green.
... I dunno. I'm kinda getting tired of chasing him everywhere.
>>28459248He's had a rough first year of training.>>28459252Ah, I see. I keep forgetting about the pastebin for characters.
>>28459088It's nice to see that you added in the collar for the Rocket uniform.
>>284592408>>28459236and isn't it rank 3 for CQC? or is that just for now?
i though Prof rolled for goldy and our roll was just kinda a bonus/something else.Or maybe it was for his mental state through this
>>28459275Or maybe he was saying we got to Rank 2 at this point of the year and that, when we reach Rank 3, a scene will be written to show our improvement.
>>28459289his roll critfailed anon. whats so hard to understand about that?
>>28459275He said "at this point", we're going to get Rank 3.
>>28459291that is what i meant by "is that just for now?".he said "at this point" for thrown weapons. so i had to ask
So, as I see it, Grumpy is distancing himself from Ceru because he is afraid that Ceru's presence will hurt his training.Hurting his training would of course make him a threat to himself and others, including Ceru. Could he be doing that to protect us?
>>28459306Prof rolled a 51 for GoldenRod. he then asked us to help him out with a set of rolls. we critfailed, Prof didn't.
>>28459328He is doing all that because he is an insecure idiot despite all dem iq numbers he packs in his disturbed little brain. Failing gets to him.
>>28459328Ahhhh.... the psychology of child soldiers.
>>28459328I think his feelings would be more complex than that. He has stated that he's been jealous of us in the past, he's got an inferiority complex, and, yes, he's mom has been drilling it into his head that his powers are dangerous so he may be distancing himself as well because of that. People can have more than one reason for doing what they do and they can have all sorts of conflicting feelings about it too.
>>28459328 Something to consider, isn't it?>Writing Fuschi Minisode.
>>28459346Fun fact: IQ doesn't mean anything
>>28459340he decided to let the players roll for goldy and bruise and players critfailed gurmpy's roll. really, does this need to be said half a dozen more times? his rol critfailed.
>>28459371I am looking at the Archive right now. The professor rolled for Goldy first, he rolled a 51.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28385124/#p28394432I don't know if our critfail overwrites his roll, but it may not have and it may just affect his attitude and not his training.
>>28459360In that case, there is only one option possible: hugs, lots of them.
>>28459399It overwrote his roll. Bruise also critfailed and he burned off a point of his MASSIVE tenacity stat to make it go away.Goldie had too close to 0 tenacity to erase his.
>>28459399Because it was average, he had other people roll dice for Goldie too.It was not a supplement, but a replacement for his roll.
So do you guys think that upon Dewgong evolution our blubber will become thick enough for it too keep all of our cold inside and not hove freezing hugs anymore?
>>28459425>>28459423I would like to hear Prof say that. Prof didn't roll for bruise.
>>28459399anon you fail at reading comprehension so i will tell you one last time and then stop trying.his roll critfailed.read that archive thread a few times over, maybe you'll come to understand the situation.
>>28459423He only spent 1 point of tenacity, anon.>>28459439Just read the dialogue, anon.....
>>28459452Reading comprehension, anon.>Bruise also critfailed and he burned off a point of his MASSIVE tenacity stat to make it go away.>a point
>>28459432I'm hoping that is possible even before our fat gets even thicker. The Crytten hide literally says it keeps cold in.The problem is we don't have much control, we have the Freezer Array and that makes us cold on the outside, but once we learn enough control we should be able to stop outputting cold.It might not be a particularly warm hug, but at least it will be temperature neutral and will warm them up slowly since our fur should insulate them from losing heat.
>>28459432Glaceon and Vaporeon will solve all problems. Thermocontrol and phase shifting, no fucks will ever be given again. until Mable or Sanna decide to spar
>>28459468If we're temperature neutral, than our hug would be warm just because of the amount of fur, I think. Wouldn't be as warm if we could share our heat, though. But it'd be like getting covered with a thick, plush blanket.
>>28459477If we survive the surgery.Still leaning Shelder next.
>>28459468It's a premature freezer array.Premature in pokemon generally means that it's weak and lacks control. Like Pichu's electric cheek sacs.Evolving Crytten should solve our problems.
>>28459468Come to think of it I remember that there is an ice type pokemon that can raise it's body temperture.
>>28459495Cerulean just sounds so soft.....
Honestly I want to give warm hugs again Alexis falling asleep on Ceru was beyond cute>>28459477In order to get those two we need to find evolution stones first.
>>28459523Prof said Eevee are reactive enough to evolve from the elements present already in our biology.
>>28459477Cyrogonal is better than both them
>>28459513Is it in Kanto or Johto? No? then for get about it.>>28459523no we don't, Prof said a tenacity burn could get us those since we are already water/ice. But lets wait until we armor up.
>>28459498The surgery is not the problem. Prof confirmed that the Eevee surgery itself is not anymore dangerous than other surgeries.It's what comes after, the trying to get an evolution that doesn't push your type limit and kill you, that's dangerous.
>>28459541too bad it's all the way in Unova, huh?
>>28459495That's what I said, temperature neutral, but it will warm them up because it's an insulator. Blankets don't immediately warm people up, it takes a bit to get working. >>28459521She is the softest and the fuzziest. She even has a fluffy tail and fuzzy ears. We need to learn control so we can start giving out hugs again, and have someone scritch behind our ears and pet fluffy tail.
Come on prof wasnt this dumb stuff pre-written?
>>28459570Minisode is not.
>>28459560>That's what I said, temperature neutral, but it will warm them up because it's an insulator. Blankets don't immediately warm people up, it takes a bit to get working.Guess we're going to have to make our hugs extra long to compensate.I'm sure no one here would complain about that.
>>28459559Actually it comes from clouds.
Stones garuntee results. It'd be bad if because we of our personality we get a different evolution then what we expected.Bad rolls could literally kill us.
>>28459574You get back to writing and ignore the impatient Anons
>>28459580Is it specified as migratory? No? then forget about it
>>28459586Tenacity burn, motherfucker.It's not the optimal course of action, but it is not a random thing.
>>28459586If we get a Water Stone we are using it to go Cloyster.
>>28459607Did you read it's pokedex entry?Because all we have to do to find one is wait for winter.
>>28459041When we're older, I hope Goldie starts styling the fu manchu he's got going on. Maybe braid it a little or something. Something dignified.
This really isn't worth worrying about right now, since any further implants are from what we can find. So if cryogonal form in the area, cool beans, I want me some liquefication.
>>28459653He needs a braided viking mustache. That way, he will be a psychic viking. This is a good thing.
=======Fuschia Minisode=======The training grounds of fuschia feel timeless, with the gym bearing a distinct old-fashioned look, much unlike the appearance of Cerulean's gym. The students here are often dutiful and disciplined rather than playful like your own. It's amazed you just how different each gym is from quarter to quarter.Aside from Koga's seldom supervision, and the jealous glances of other trainees, you've trained with Janine religiously, and by Arceus has it made a difference.You've noticed that Janine seems to have a new part to her, with her using silken threads produced from her hands and fingers.Today however, Koga's invited you to tea with his other prospective students.You garb yourself in a gifted silken kimono lent to you, and escorted by Janine through the wooden halls of the Koga, you pass through a paper door as a tea ceremony has begun. A few non-ranger women pouring tea for Master Koga as he still wears his mask and ranger garb, though a far more formal version of it. Would you ever see his face?"Welcome to my humble home. Come, sit. You shall be served tea as you like." His voice comes out with a slight hiss, sounding like something less human than you'd like. Taking your seat, Janine sits next to you, the other couple of rangers there with you."My students, introduce yourselves,"Koga utters as he picks up a cup of tea, pulling down his mask slightly to sip at the cup. You make note that even his fingers are gloved, and his arms wrapped.The first boy respectfully bows to you, one hand clasped over a fist. Power and control as you have learned," My name is Talse. Pleased to meet you."As you bow back to your peer, you take notice of his ears, purple, and slight barbs protruding from his skin along with whiskers and a deadly horn upon the hand covering the fist."Cerulean, it's nice to meet you Talse.""All mine," he smiles.
>>28459654Haven't we been modified enough?
>>28459641Just because it is born in snow clouds does not mean it is born in every snow cloud. and it doesn't mean that they will come down from the cloud either
>>28459671no we are never too modified for snorunt.
>>28459654Cryogonal turns into mist.
>>28459669>You've noticed that Janine seems to have a new part to her, with her using silken threads produced from her hands and fingers.>You garb yourself in a gifted silken kimono lent to you>implications
>>28459721my bad 3.i think we could get 4 maybe 5 or 6
>>28459721We have three different species, actually.
>>28459700crafted only by the finestalso, that puts some interesting potential in light armor. If they have enough caterpies grafted on the crafters, then that means everybody is literally equipped with better-than-kevlar vests.just how many non-combat rangers do we have?
>>28459721I thought we had 3 because our last surgery came from 2 pokemon
>>28459700my thoughts exactly.
>>28459752It's a nice sentiment, if it's true. Shows how close she thinks we are to her.
>>28459743they may not have the skill to weave it so finely. kevlar is Machine woven if i remember right.Plus kevlar only stops bullets.
The other boy's vision lingers upon Janine, in her kimono before the Master clears his throat, snapping him to attention."My apologies," He bows," My name is Haru. Pleased to, ah, meet you."Another return and you glance at Janine a moment as she leers at the boy," Pleased to meet you too." This one bears bat-like ears that you've seen on some other rangers, Zubat. He's good at hearing then, the other is a nidoran or nidorino.Poison types. Natural for Fuschia.Master Koga sets his cup down to speak, carrying that same inhuman reverberation to his voice,"I have invited you hear as you have been training with my Granddaughter so fervently. It is interesting indeed. You are the one that passed the wood with her, as I have been told." He looks to Janine, whom bows her head respectfully at his attention."I had hoped to ascertain your character, what sort of a person you are, or will be in the future. I am getting on in the years, and I must know that Janine has reliable comrades.">Anything you wish to say here?> Yes...> No, let him continue.
>>28459792>> No, let him continue.lets not interupt Nina dude.unless he is waiting for us to speak. then someone should probably type something up
>>28459792>> No, let him continue.It's rude to interrupt.
>>28459792>Small thing: "Yes she has been a wonderful training partner."Then let him continue.
>>28459792 No, let him continue.Speak when asked a question. Need to be respectful.
>>28459792Compliment Janine, I suppose. She was quite reliable herself, the way she and Bruise stayed behind back in the beedrill clearing to hold off a swarm of monsters to help us get to safety.She was very clearheaded in a pinch.
>>28459792> Yes..."I value my friends greatly and will do almost anything to see them happy and safe."
>>28459792>[x] No, let him continue.if he didn't stop waiting for a comment then dont interrupt him.
>>28459792It's rude to interrupt.
>>28459792> No, let him continue.Let him talk.
>>28459792>> No, let him continue.No interupting the master. Bow head in respect.
>>28459792>> No, let him continue.He is very traditional and seems rather strict, so lets not interrupt.
>>28459840Yes on this. These are the kinds of things where you have to read the atmosphere.If he asks us what Janine is like, we can comment, but until then, let's try to act disciplined.
>>28459792> Yes...Assuming that there is a pause and we wouldn't be interrupting or talking over him."It is an honor Master Koga. Janine has taught me much in our time together, and was an able leader in the field. I consider her a true friend of mine."Also, we might want to chill our tea when we get it, bring it down to not quite freezing. He did say we will be served tea as we like, and we like it cold.
>>28459759fine, whatever the pokemon equivalent is for spider silk, since the point is that a sizable amount can be produced 1) at will and 2) fairly large quantities for a single organism>>28459792thank him for being able to use his facilities. the best way to respect him is to show discipline and etiquette, though being more honest and relaxed has its benefits.
>>28459792>[X] No, let him continue.
>>28459661Psychic/Fighting would be helpful for him. We need to get a machop for him
>>28459792[X] Yes...Thank him for allowing us to learn Martial Arts, and compliment Janine as a teacher.
>>28459990We're not going to take Bruise and fuse him with Grumpy. On second thought, that might be pretty cool.
>>28460006>>28459990It isn't really our choice
>>28460006Do you really want to deal with Bumpy?
>>28459990>>28460006Meditite would be a good choice, if we could procure it for him somehow.
>>28459954Spider silk =/= Silkthough pokemon silk might
>>28460028No, I'd prefer to deal with Gruise.
In your time training here, you've learned the kind of respect expected of you here, and you bow your head slightly, listening intently to his every word."You see, I find myself troubled as I grow older every year. Janine is young and aspiring, the last of the main-branch family aside from myself as we've suffered one unfortunate circumstance after another."He pauses, letting that word stay in the air.He finally sighs,"It is such that I fear for her safety."He gestures to the two boys," These are the most skilled young men from the sub-branches of our family. I do not expect you to know exactly what that means, however it does mean that Janine must someday wed one of them for our future."He sips his tea, still holding the floor," As an outsider, yet friend to her, your advice must bear some degree on her. I am too old to make decisions for my sole heir. I leave it up to her.Could I count upon you, as a friend to her?" His eyes rest upon you, as he sips at his tea, a pair of mandibles peeking out to embrace it.> Write in.
>>28460025Once we start hunting on our own, though, we'll be getting the first pickings on whatever beasts we take down. We'll probably be able to choose the missions (and, thus, targets) we want to take.>>28460053Hm. What to say.
>>28460053Buddy you do not even know the degree of friendship we will apply.
>>28460053We will merit the trust you've shown us.
>>28460053"O-Of course sir! Janine is one of my friends. I always look out for my friends." Try and look really determined, assuming training hasn't whipped the little girl out of us yet.
>>28460043yes, i realize that caterpies were not the best example, but the point still stands.i mean, why bother with silkworms when you can mass-produce either kind of silk with only a handful of pokemon?
>>28460077but we cannot force grumpy to take another implant.
>>28460053Hmm he is asking for our opinion on each of the possible suitors. This is an omiai. "Of course. I will do everything I can to help."
>>28460053I will always be honest with Janine and hope we can continue to be good friends.
>>28460053What's he asking us for, exactly? To support her? Help her choose? Is he implying that Janine doesn't want to marry and that he wants us to nudge her that way?We're (still) 10, so do we actually understand what he's asking us to do for Janine?
>>28460053why do I keep imaging Koga as Kamen Rider?
>>28460034That or a bitching beldum.Steel/psychic is one of the best typing.>>28460053How could I deny your request after all the help your grandaughter and your gym gave me? I will help you.
>>28460101i don't think he is asking for us to pick a suitor. he just said it was up to her
>>28460082this. I don't know if Ceru has the balls to say it this way, but it would be so awesome.
>>2846011811.12 after the timeskip
>>28460122Yes I know. But he is asking us to help Janine choose.
>>28460120this combined with>>28460086and>>28460088
>>28460120>BeldumPlease anon, stop teasing me with a Ceru we will never get to see. It hurts my heart.
>>28460053"Of course. I'd always want the best for my friend on such a matter even if you hadn't asked. Though if i am to be honest, if *she* definitely wanted none of those two i'd support that as her friend, but she is probably too dedicated to her family to even consider that. Anyways, i'll always do my best to make my friend happy."
>>28460053"Of course Master Koga. Janine is my friend, I freely offer my advice and support. I hope to live up to the faith you have placed in me."Give Janine a smile, and if we have tea sip some cold tea.
>>28460144>Could I count upon you, as a friend to her?no he isn't
>>28460053Oh wait, I think I get it. He's not asking us to push her towards any sort of decision. Just that we counsel her.>>28460153>>28460086>>28460088My vote goes here.>>28460134This was still within the first year of training, I think. We're still in the montage. After the montage (which is its own sort of timeskip, I guess) is the 1 year timeskip.
>>28460174it is a 1 year and 4 month timeskipwe were 11 and 4 months.so we are probably close to our 11th birthday
>>28460203That's how long the montage is, yes. How do you know at what point of the montage this interlude is happening in? We've only acquired Rank 2 of Fuchsia CQC training and Rank 1 of Thrown Weapons training. There's still lots of other abilities and weapons training we've yet to acquire, so I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that this is still early on in the montage.
>>28460170Wut? Thats exactly what he is asking us to do. He wants us to look over the two prospects and tell Janine which we think is the best choice for her. Whether she follows our advice is a different matter entirely.
>>28460119Because he's a bug man that's completely covered from head to toe.>writing.
>>28460289it would be funny if, for all the ninja training he teaches, he fights by riding a loud bike and screaming "HENSHIN!"
>>28460289Are you saying that he isn't lover of justice?
>>28460289PLEASE DRAWFRIENDS HEAR ME PLEA
>>28460274i see absolutely nothing thta asks us to give our opinion on the prospects. he was probably just informing us of her arranged marraige because we are her (probably closest) friend
>>28460274just the fact that she has someone to talk to who isn't her husband takes a lot of the pressure off.
>>28459088She only 12 years old, but the ass was fat
I hope this thread is as long as they usually are, because we may need it just to finish this monatge.
>>28460460The montage is pre-written. This mini-sode with Janine wasn't.
>>28460338Kamen rider became grimdark as fuck in the later seasons
>>28460486you do not know how many mini-sodes there are going to be
>>28460509in that case, is it possible for someone else to update the skill sheets and pokedex while Ygg is writing?
"Oh, o-of course sir." You bow your head politely," Janine is a dear friend of mine, and with all the help your gym has given me, I certainly could not refuse."Tea is set before you, and you give it a brisk chill before sipping it.Koga's expressionless face bows his head, his flanged voice bearing some modicum of approval," It is good to hear. We have enjoyed having you here as well."Slowly, he rises, standing dignified,"I am honored that you would hear this old man's request. I will excuse myself, please enjoy your time here. I apologize that I must leave so soon as a host. If you have need of anything more, please ask Renya and Shao." He gestures to the two serving women who have brought themselves to the corners of the room.As he leaves, you give Janine a smile, though she wears a small frown," Sorry to have gotten you involved in this." She whispers to you.Your ears twitch and your tail flicks slightly," It's alright, I'm happy to help you Janine, you know that."She grips at her own Kimono with her apprehension,' Yeah.. Thank you.">Ask the suitors questions/get to know them.>Return to Montage.
>>28460536Let's get to know these guys a bit. Ask them for how long they've known Janine.
>>28460536Let's get back to the future. Which is the past.
>>28460535Skill sheets are already updated. Though putting you fellows to work may be nice for canon pokedex. If you can give me a summary of unadded pokemon, I could throw them onto the pokedex Although with certain lesser known details taken out.
>>28460536*insert friendish assurance bullshit here* Then back to montage
>>28460536>She grips at her own Kimono with her apprehension,' Yeah.. Thank you.">>28460558Also, anyone else getting the feeling that Janine doesn't want to marry?
>>28460536Get to know them a little better.I have a feeling one of em is a creepizoid. Staring at tits he was.
>>28460536[X] Ask the suitors questions/get to know them.We take helping our friends out seriously. We can't help her much if we don't know about them. Ask how long they've known each other, what they spend their time doing, their thoughts on the situation, and so on. We should talk with Janine privately as well, get her opinion on this situation, not just the opinion she shows everyone. I'm getting the feeling she's not completely happy with either of them.
>>28460536>>Ask the suitors questions/get to know them.How did you come to know Janine? Do you want to wed her?
>>28460608More like, I think she wants to be the leader of this Gym.
[x]ask suitors questionsSo, what are your stories? Where are you from? WHY are you good enough for dear sweet janine over here?
>>28460536>>Ask the suitors questions/get to know them.Go classic father mode and ask "Why should i let Janine marry you?"
>>28460608What is it with tg, can't a woman just like the d, but not the d of some guys with you people?
>>28460624She will be.she just has to marry a branch family so her kids are pure bloods.
>>28460536Get a chance to know both of them.Operate from the assumption that both of them are nice, decent people.
>>28460634It's THE D for a reason. All D leads is of united man.

>>28460664Need that "Through dick, unity" screencap.
>>28460536>>28460679Yes, this. Ask these guys what the marriage ceremony is like.
>>28460536Get to know the suitorsFind out which one is the nicest.
>>28460700NO!Find out which one will breed the best offspring.
>>28460679Ask these questions.
>>28460723find out which one has the bigger dick.
>Janine stuck with either nidoran or zubatBeing the head of the ninja clan is suffering
>>28460577I'm mostly interested in how far you're taking the EX list. Are monster hunter creatures going to be just as common as pokemon? Or are they just considered to live in a different region, etc.in terms of vanilla pokemon, we should add in the domesticated ones used for the development of the cities once you've finished worldbuilding them in. Food sources, water purifiers, medical equipment/medicine, excavation, pets, etc.I'm assuming most of the evolved forms are unknown, so we might be able to get away with potentially dangerous pokemon simply because nobody knows yet.
>>28460536>return to Montagehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU9Uwhjlog8
>>28460753>Are monster hunter creatures going to be just as common as pokemonTo some degree. Inserting more OCs for surprises or to throw a wrench in plans. I am considering that they are more common on and around the orange islands however, which are many.
>>28460753Personally i would prefer to keep a few as possible OC/monsterhunter pokemon. . I think the OC pokemon should only be there to fill any niches that pokemon doesn't already have filled (ie: forest fires, sabre tooth tigers/arctic tundra, etc. etc.)
>>28460796>>28460786Crytten was awesome for an OC, that's all I have to say. So much so I didn't even KNOW it was OC until you told us.If that's the quality, make as many as you please.
>>28460796I'm fine with OC pokemon, so long as they don't live in Kanto/Johto/Sinnoh/Hoenn.Like all those regions are relatively minor portions of Japan, and yet they have a considerable variance in the types of pokemon that live in each area.It stands to reason that the rest of Poke-Japan would have a similar amount of variety, wouldn't you think?
>>28460786>orange islandsThat reminds me to ask about how that map is coming along with SM
>>28460865I mean look at all the blank space.
>>28460786That reminds me, Prof. What are Shadow Pokemon like in this setting?
>>28460918West coast of japan should have different water types
>>28460929shadow pokemon...if we go by attack on titan, I guess these are people who can turn completely into pokemon
>>28460918Kalos and Unova where? Also, Orre where?
>>28461025unova is amerciagen 6 is france
>>28461025...Seriously? They're on completely different continents.Unova is Poke-New YorkOrre is Poke-ArizonaKalos is Poke-France.

You sip at your tea, and while Janine is unusually reserved here, you feel more in control of this situation. Whether it be the bout of confidence Koga has bestowed upon you, or your glorious training as a rocket."So.. Haru, and Talse, right? Why you two? What do you have to offer Janine?"You smile with a sort of purr to your lips, Talse stares on, while Haru's eyes linger on Janine again. The young lady in question bears a complexion of stone as she regains composure."You first." You point to Haru as Talse begins to speak, and take another sip of your icy tea. The boy nods and begins."Well, I am Haru. I come from clan Tsukiyome, I honestly didn't know why Master Koga called me here until just a bit ago. Umm.." He scratches his head," I am still in training, getting close to taking the Veridian wood test. I'm a decent ranger, I think. But nowhere near Lady Janine's level. I've been told I'm good at Recon, but, well, that's about it." His eyes fall back upon Janine, until he looks down at his own tea, and sips the warm amber fluid."Your turn." You sip down the rest of your tea and point to Talse, as Janine calls Shao for a refill.The Nidoran ranger pulls at his collar,"I am Talse, of clan Soragakure. We are a leading clan of toxicology. We research poisons, of all sorts from delaying activation time, eating away at flesh, paralysis, and more. I am honored to be considered for Lady Janine's betrothal. I only hope I am selected to bring honor to my clan."You sip at your refilled tea, and give him a slight nod," And what about you?" A simple question, most of that stuff he said doesn't matter to you after all.He seems to pause at that, thinking on it," I am a poor example of my family, preferring the art of close combat over poisons." He shrugs," I guess it just seems more honest and fitting of a ranger.">You've gotten to know the gist of them. Who would you advise Janine to marry in the future? The final decision need not be made now.
>>28461070i don't see the correlation
>>28461080No decision for now.Better to let Janine get to know them better herself as well.Let's continue with the MONTAGE.
>>28461080No decision now, but if she asks us, we'll say Haru.Talse is a fucking perv man, he's checking out them gams
>>28461080no decision for now.but obviously Talse.Now back to the montage!!!1
>>28461080>"I've been told I'm good at Recon, but, well, that's about it." His eyes fall back upon Janine, until he looks down at his own tea, and sips the warm amber fluid.Why are the recon boys always so shy.They both seem like nice guys, though. Haru is pretty reserved while Talse is earnest.
>>28461119other way around.Haru was perving
>>28461080I like them both.This is harder than I had anticipated.Let's wait and see which of them die in the ranger test.
Really we don't have enough information yet.
>>28461080BACK TO THE MONTAGE!!!!!!
>>28461080No decision yet. We should ask Janine sometime what she thinks about all this and about two boys in particular.
>>28461119>>28461142Yeah, it was Haru who was checking Janine out.
>>28461080>warm amber fluid.Minor nitpick, isn't the tea actually used in tea ceremonies green matcha or at least green sencha?Anyway, for the wedding choice, lets see how Haru fares in the Veridian wood test first.>>28461093Aren't both satelites of a certain planet?
>>28461093Attack on Titan is set in Europe
>>28461186I don't think we have to worry about either of them for the test. They're both supposedly the best among their batch of cadets.
>>28461080Recommend Haru in private to Janine, Kids got a good heart which should appeal to Cerulean and the would have a better relationship free from political drama marrying someone the same status as her.
>>28461193Pretty sure it isn't. I don't think it was specified where it was.There aren't any Titans in this setting. besides Pokemon would literally assrape them all over the place
>>28461186 Pokescience. I blame the berry leaves used in this tea. >No opinion: Continuing Montage.
>>28461080Talse, obviously.NOW BACK TO THE MONTAGE!
We've hardly interacted with either of these two at all, nor has Janine herself actually asked for our input. Just leave it alone for now.
>>28461244>statusI'm pretty sure they're all of the same status, anon. Or, at least, Talse's status hasn't been mentioned at all.
>>28461244Ehh, i don't see anything that proves he isn't just a kid or isn't a perv or isn't normal.
>>28461207The test isn't just a test of personal worth. Even if they are the best of their batch, they could die saving their group.>>28461257Oh now you're abusing the pokescience excuse.
>>28461254It was said that it was not in any part of Asia during the flashback where Eren saves Mikasa from the dudes that kill her parents. And the people are white, they have Eruopean names, and there are castles.
>>28461264They didn't even think of ask what Janine thought.
>>28461080I like Talse more, he seems earnest and straight forward, that's useful in a marriage, especially when it may not be a marriage based on love. I'd advise her to go with him. Haru is nice, but a bit wishy washy.Obviously Janine's opinions of them are still important, and we don't know either of them as well as we'd like for this.>>28461244They both are under Janine as she's from the main clan and they're from branch clans.
>>28461257>no opinionAs expected of /tg/-kun.
>>28461080Look on the bright side.If Haru doesn't make it back from the Veridian woods then the choice has already been made.
>>28461319I don't understand the implication, anon.
>>28461315I sort of like talse too. He's got a good resume and seems into it.But it's too early to give solid advice
>>28461308a few european names and not being asia does not mean europe.Besides, it's anime/manga, names mean almost nothing.
Realizing something. Spiritomb is made of 108 spirits.Agatha probably ate way more than that. Agatha is basically a super Spiritomb bound to human form instead of a rock.
>>28461366 We'll touch on that soon.
>>28461363Tell me where you think it's set then. The most likely location is Europe if we're assuming it's actually Earth.
>>28461383AUor close enough to it that none of it fucking matters
Goldenrod's ability as a psychic flourished over the past year. Growing more powerful everyday, he seemed to be more occupied with refining his abilities as an esper rather than pursue his Rocket career.This habit began to rear its ugly head as time and time again he came in last for runs, weapons practice, application of tactical equipment(which never worked for him) and his brash nature kept him from admitting his fault.Despite yours and Bruise's attempts to help him, he only withdrew further away, even going so far as to claim that the rockets may not be good enough for him.This escalated to the point that he began to skip training to go elsewhere. Where, as always, you had little clue, yet this would not last for more than a few days.Kitty eventually hunted him down to scold him. Even with his mounting attitude, the crazy cat lady could put the esper in his place. ___________________________________________Kitty brings out Goldenrod, dragging him out by the ear, in pure panic mode as he seems to have lost his sense of reason, struggling and scratching at the hardy women, attempting to get away."Get off, please get off! You- You scare me! Get away! Please!" Goldenrod begs in his throes, unheard by Kitty.You can see as he's brought before the lineup that there's blood on Kitty's claws and Goldenrod's face has been shredded up rather well. Your Rocket Trainer, undaunted by the slight horror upon your face or Bruise's Grimace.Kenn seems a bit perturbed as a younger Ranger, though Devon grins a bit madly, the others try to mask over their expressions.Mable notably shows no chance apart from the odd spark here and there."This maggot's come to the thinking that he's too good for the lot of us. Unforgivable as a trainee ranger, and a major insult to myself, as the trainer that's put you all through hell till now."
>>28461479God damn it Grumpy. Are we going to have to whoop your ass and then give you a hug?
>>28461479didn't you have this all typed up beforehand?
"Let go!" Goldenrod scream again, pulling hard before a swat of Kitty's powerful tail has him reeling."I've brought him before you all, his peers. Your choice to make, will this ungrateful maggot be allowed to train with the rest of you again? Or will he be dumped back at his old gym? Choice is yours little cadets." Kitty's eyes are wide and waiting as she calmly drags about the struggling esper."Screw you, bit-" Another swat of Kitty's tail brings him to the ground, gasping."Make the choice little cadets," Kitty's eyes linger over you and Bruise before passing over to the others.Goldenrod's been truant, ever complaining, and bullheaded. More-so than Bruise. You've heard how the others are getting fed up with him, and you know Devon has a chip for this sort of thing, often antagonizing you to get serious with him.Mable's code of conduct would have her rid of Goldie, he's not a soldier.Sanna, could likely care less, and the others? You're not sure what they might think either.>What would you say? Goldie's walking on thin ice here.
>>28461479poor, poor goldielocks
>>28461479Oh Goldenrod, what did you THINK would happen?
>>28461513Yeah, and I'm editing it to make it more presentable.22:49-23:03 14 minutes really that long for ya?
>>28461479If there is sparring then we volunteer.>>28461516Ceru says he stays. Though i wouldnt.
>>28461516I'd like him to stay on. He's always been grumpy, sure, but he's a nice kid, and he's coming along really well in his abilities.
>>28461516Let him leave the Rangers He'll always be our friend.
If he truly wishes to leave.... you cannot force someone to be your friend afterall.
>>28461536No, just wondering. sorry if it came off as complaining
>>28461516He's being hard headed. We need to either break through it, and train his ass, or let him go and sulk in the corner.I vote let him stay. At least to say we stuck up for him.
>>28461516"Goldie can't be allowed to run-away. He decided to be a Rocket, so he has to accept responsibility for his decision no matter what."Or something to that effect.
>>28461516Yeah he stays. we are soooo gonna be out voted though.
>>28461516"I feel like there's something I should say to you to help you. But I do not know what to say, I can't find the words I think you need to hear. And for that I want to say I'm sorry."unintentional passive aggressive guilt trip maybe?
>>28461516Ask Goldenrod if he truly wishes to leave.But, we have to make him realize that the biggest threats are handled by the rocket rangers and the elite 4, if he truly wishes to protect the dome, he should stay.
>>28461516I say we propose a Sparring match. if he wins he can decide weather to stay or leave, if he loses he is kicked out.
>>28461516Well we support him obviously.But I'm not sure what we should say.
>>28461573I have a plan for that actually.Tell the others to give him a second chance, if he thinks he's so much better then us, let him try to prove it to get his ass in gear still.At least half of them are competative
>>28461516Speak up on his behalf. I know he's basically a child abuse victim and a product of his environment but few people in the Rockets are going to care, even people in the thread are giving up on him. In private we need to get him to get his shit together or he'll get thrown out no matter what we say, and deliver that message in some way that doesn't antagonize him. Something like >>28461572 or >>28461592 might be good for right now.
>>28461587He didn't do this for the dome, I don't think. He did it because his mom made him and he'd do anything to make her proud of him. Or at least, would. Dunno how long that train of thought will last.
>>28461588my thought's exactly.
>>28461516Let him stay, as long as he promises to respect others more and starts taking his training seriously.
>>28461588change that toI say we propose a Sparring match. if he wins he can decide weather to stay or leave, if he loses we vote on it.I think this would solve the problem of us being outvoted but also might kick his ass into gear for when we beat him.
>>28461573Actually, as of this post, it's currently 8 votes to 2. Not counting non-committal posts like>>28461587If we want to convince the others that he should stay, we can say that it was his decision to become a Rocket. And he has to be forced to live with that decision like a grown-up. He can't just drop this because he feels like it.>>28461577Ech. Not this. Not in front of everybody.
>>28461516Are we talking to our fellow cadets or are we talking to Goldie or Kitty or what?
>>28461651Both. Kitty is asking for our opinions, but we can try to convince the others as well.
>>28461651Everyone's in line. Talking to everyone unless you direct it at someone.
>>28461651It is IC to stick up for him. but if Kitty argues against us then we propose a sparring match for him to prove his worth.
>>28461577That seems harsh, but it might work?
>>28461636>>28461577yeah... maybe a private chat after we fail to keep him in the Rocketstoo smaltzy for public.I just thought prof wanted us to say something go Goldie directly. Not weigh in on his Rocket Status
>>28461678Kitty won't argue against us, I'm sure. She's just asking us, the cadets, for our opinion.>>28461684That's all Kitty was asking us for. On whether or not Goldie should stay on the Rockets.
>>28461592I think this might be our best chance?God damn critfails.
>>28461695then if someone else argues against us we propose that.Probably Devon (is he the kid of an Elite 4?)
>>28461695kinda picked that up when I saw the other responses and reread it. then I felt stupid.I still think it would get through to Goldie though
>>28461516I'm trying as hard as I can to think up something to convince the other cadets to let him stay, but between trying to not include meta or things we shouldn't remember, this is getting hard.
>>28461721Soldier responsibility. It's totally within our character, since we're the formal type.
>>28461516I would say for him to stay."He's an Esper, and a rather powerful one at that. Him being in the field with us could easily end up being the factor which keeps us from dying. He can deal with threats the rest of us would have difficulty even identifying.You all know this to be true. While he may be difficult to deal with, we all know that his skillset could make him an excellent addition to any team sent out to the wilds.However his behavior lately has been deplorable. Goldenrod, you are not a Saffron Gym member, you are a Rocket, you made that decision, you took the oath, and you are going to live by it, even if I have to drag you kicking and screaming through this training. You've saved my life before, and I am going to help you whether you like it or not."Give him a nice big smile."You are going to stop trying to avoid me, you are going to stop skipping out on training, you are going to stop complaining about training, we're all training just as hard.If you want to walk away after all the bullshit you've put us through you can do that, after you beat me in a spar and prove that you don't need Rocket Training."
Or we go with the classic "Let him stay and i'll make sure he gets in line" by putting our reputation on the line.
>>28461635Dude have you learned nothing from Alexis?We won't be able to beat Goldenrod unless we use Evil abilities, and you don't use Evil abilities on things you don't want to kill.
I like the idea of challenging him to a duel to prove he's better off training on his own, specifically if he remembers the Alexis event, seeing him squirm facing that would be delicious, since he can't even explain why it would be a bad idea. (unless we've done regular duels since then and gotten accustomed to our new techniques)
>>28461705A good idea. Then we get angry with Golden Rod, we break what he's used to from us. We're always hugs and friendship and warm bigheartedness; time for Cerulean to go from cute Bernadette to angry exasperated disappointed voice. His head will spin so fast while we demand he step up that he'll get whiplash. We'll help him out with off hours training to catch up, and we'd do that anyway because "ELITE"
>>28461516He's not bad, but he doesn't take failure very well. As high and mighty as he acts, we know that he has serious self-confidence issues.We need to get him to use his head, and I don't mean psychic powers. If he can learn to work smart, not hard, and refrain from antagonizing trainers/teamates, he should be just fine.>>28461592this can be a good way to get him to use his brain. If we can get him to listen to us, maybe he'll find a way to be halfway competent on his own.
>>28461764You'd think Kitty would have taught us over the montage.
So:>Propose sparring match: Win, he choses. Lose, we choose.>Cast your vote for him to stay, with some words that may bite him.>Put rep on the line>>28461752>>28461592Or this: >>28461746Modified.Vote here, and we'll act it out.>>28461807They have, that was one of the next parts. You trained Evil Techs with Devon and Kitty.
>>28461764>>28461807I really don't want to duel a psychic.The only way we can play to ou advantage is using evil moves. And evil moves, as we all know now, are NOT to be used in duels.
>>28461814>with some words that may bite him.What posts are you referring to here?
>>28461773>cute>bernadetteBut I agree. There must be some kind of limit to how much bullshit Ceru can take from Goldie.
>>28461814>Put rep on the line
>>28461814Cast vote for him to stay, with just a few biting words. He may not admit it, but he still looks to us as a figure of happiness. That's why he tries to avoid us. This way, we can say we at least tried.And talk to the others a bit too, if it looks like they're ready to get rid of his ass. Tell them that Grumpy should be here with us if he thinks he's better, so he can prove it.
>>28461814I dislike the sparring thing a lot.
>>28461814>>Propose sparring match: Win, he choses. Lose, we choose.but it would be better to phrase it to the people that want him gone
>>28461814>Cast your vote for him to stay, with some words that may bite him.My vote goes here.
>>28461746I like most of this, I think it's pretty good. I'm worried it might be a bit too antagonistic to Goldenrod but eventually you have to set limits. I still have mixed feelings on the sparring stuff, most people seem to like it though, so maybe I'm just wrong.
>>28461814I think >>28461746Might be good, but Goldenrod seems too likely to react poorly to the part targeted at him.But then again, he's likely to react poorly to anything.I like him and all, but he is such a shit.
>>28461814I dont want to go for the duel, but I can't justify not dueling him in character. He wants to leave because he's too good for us, this is rookie training, we've dueled before the alexis one during training and this makes too much sense. The only thing to justify not doing it is evil techs being so nasty, but that is OOC as FUCK, me/tg/aming is bad mmk?
>>28461814this>>28461746i like it
>>28461826Snarl is Dark, and it won't hurt him, just utterly fuck up his ability to keep a level head and use psychic powers effectively. Remember, he's in a bad state due to Kitty thrashing him about, add Snarl on top of that and he's toast psychically speaking.Also, Feint Attacking into something like Water Gun or Icy Wind should be fine, as long as we don't Frost Breath or Crossroad Killing him I think we'll be alright. >>28461814I'd go for >>28461746Modified to include other suggestions. Make sure that it's clear that we're taking responsibility for him, our reputation is on the line. We're through putting up with his bullshit. We want our friend back.He can either accept that we're going to be helping him, or he can try and fight us.
>>28461814Going with this speech>>28461746with a dash of "you think you're too good for us"and offering that he proves himself to any dissenters
>>28461814We should make mention of him jumping on saying yes first. He obviously thought that the Rockets was the best choice for him. His opportunity. Tell him that he's better than this. He knew it would be hard and we that we know he can do it. Tell him that we're his friend and he should stop isolating himself away. Remember what we told him at the forest, that he's part of a team not. He doesn't have to be alone.So I guess.>Cast your vote for him to stay, with some words that may bite him.>Put rep on the lineAnd I really don't like the spar thing unless everything else fails. If all else fails, make him prove that he's better than us.
>>28461934seems to sappy to be said in public
>>28461814I'm game for this>>28461899especially the "We want our friend back."whatever happens, we're feint attacking into a hug after its all over.
>>28461814Putting our reputation on the line sounds better than trying to duel him.
>>28461946We go around hugging people in public and shit. It seems exactly like the kind of sap Ceru would pump out
>>28461956this>>28461746is better than either.or this>>28461899
>>28461814Yeah.>>28461746is good. My duel suggestion was based on a blind bluff of him knowing we lethally oneshotted someone but us not remembering how that happened, since we've been better trained since then I don't want to open with that.
>>28461814I like the sound of this >>28461752.
>>28461814i'm think what this guys says is good>>28461899
>>28461814Go for >>28461746 and >>28461899Mention we're doing this because he's our teammate and our friend, that we are going to train WITH him and help him, but he has to put the effort in.If he doesn't grow a pair and stay, then we go for the spar. I'd rather not spar him unless he's completely impervious to argument and reason.
I think the thing most people are overlooking is that we might have to convince the other recruits, in addition to Goldenrod.Which might be tricky, given how hard Goldenrod has been sucking lately.
>>28462037but it does both. and adds the whole "he will prove it" and "i will make him better"
>>28461892I know our mind was wiped but Sabrina was trying to teach us a lesson. I would say there should at least be a little lingering hesitation to use dark techniques on a friend after we killed one with them (she got better but, still) even if we were mind wiped. Also honestly I'm a bit tired of taking Grumpy's shit with a smile we really don't have to have infinite patience and despite having a sad back story he doesn't necessarily deserve us throwing away our reputation when he fails and I'm pretty sure he will.
>>28461899But do we really trust him enough to put our rep on the line just for him?All this time he has been bitching and moaning and peforming poorly during training. He's not taking any of the training seriously and he's being an arrogant son of a bitch on top of that.We would just waste time on him when we should focus on our own performance instead.
>>28462077I agree I doubt he'll follow through with the training even if we put our reputation on the line.
>>28462097>>28462077Cerulean would do it.
>>28462097I think we're already the best given we got a 98.Though the QM hasn't really illustrated that in the writing.And regardless of how good an idea it is, I'd say Cerulean would always be willing to help people she considers her friends.No matter how much of a shit Goldenrod is being, I bet we still see him as that sad, broken little boy who cried in our arms.
>>28462097Why I just said we should let him go. Better he abandon us here instead of when lives are on the line.
>>28462077Dark moves =/= instant deaththey can be used safely
>>28462145but Cerulean wouldn't say that at all
>>28462128Well then we make him follow through.We know Evil moves like Kitty does, and if we need to be a devil to keep our friend in line, then so be it.
>>28462097He's our friend, we do a lot for our friends. We intend on solving those problems. We plan on making him take it seriously, and popping that over-inflated ego of his.I'm not saying to let him off easy, if he runs we track him down and drag him back, if he doesn't put full effort into things we keep on doing it until he does. He will screw up, and I'm fine with him screwing up as long he keeps trying and keeps learning, it's when he doesn't put effort into it that we have problems. Also, teaching other people is actually really good training in a lot of ways, it forces you to really understand the basics and the underpinnings of whatever you're teaching.
>>28462149especially feint attack, since the point is that they can't detect the move, rather than hurting the opponent.I still stand by feint attack as a means to dodge rather than attack.
damn it Goldie! Haven't you ever heard the song!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DQ7TsX4vcQ
>>28462191that is a rick roll isn't it?
>>28462191But in Gen 1, Psychic types really could.
>>28462189alright, explain why feint attack can't be used to nullify the opponent's ability to lead a target.
>>28462209This is not Gen1.
>>28462209this ain't gen 1 son!
>>28461814>Cast your vote for him to stay, with some words that may bite him.Probably too late now anyway... We still have to work with the rest of the Rockets, and we're gonna look like a chump if we keep sticking up for him when he treats everyone like shit. However, it's in character for us to go out on a limb for our friends. We give him one more chance, and we scold the hell out of him.
>>28462178>>28462189>>28462220The principle behind Feint Attack is in hiding one's hostile intentions.So while there aren't any actual maneuvers to it, it would allow one to be able to move unexpectedly.
>>28462229Is Prof writing? cause i think it is clear what won.
>>28462221>>28462224Tell that to Goldenrod.
>>28462128Which is why we make him follow through.
>>28462241didn't mean to link that
>>28462246I wonder how that would go. "Goldenrod... Just stop. This is not Gen 1. You're not a one man army. Stop it."
>>28462132Assuming her patience and compassion is infinite. Not every main character has to be the avatar of patience and compassion. Just because it is a main personality trait doesn't mean kindness is endless. For once can we pretend characters change and evolve and we aren't always locked in to the most shallow and generic of traits.>>28462149I know I was just saying her still being nervous about them can be justified even after the mind wipe.>>28462164You say keeps trying as if he has ever visibly tried. I am tired of every one thinking we can just keep throwing friendship at a will and thinking it will stick if we just keep doing it. People have wills of there own we can't always force them to like us and completely change who they are.
I don't even get what's the problem with a sparring match it's not like we're going to be fighting in it.
You step forward from the line. Your face a sheet of ice as you look upon your friend cooly and calmly, glancing back to the faces of the others as you compose yourself."He's an Esper, and a strong one. He's saved me before in the field, the reason that I'm standing here now. He can deal with threats the rest of us would have difficulty even identifying." You take a deep breath, a cold sweat dotting your fur from apprehension.He's stubborn, and cowardly, but claims to be too good for us. He's had it rough, and we have too, even if he's been a brat to us lately."Kitty looks upon you with half-lidded eyes, an intrigued smile. You look to your friend as he bleeds upon the ground, looking up just enough to listen to you, and you see his scowl."Goldenrod, you are not a Saffron anymore, you are a Rocket, you decided that before Bruise, before me." He bites his lip at that, yet says nothing. He doesn't look you in the eye.You approach the whimpering Esper, as Kitty lets go of him, letting you have at him. Kneeling beside you friend, you place a hand upon his shoulder, careful of your claws,"You chose to be here, and I want you to stay even if I have to drag you kicking and screaming. You've saved my life before, and I am going to help you whether you like it or not."You give him a nice big smile, showing your pearly white fangs, and he looks up to you, tearing up.Balling up a claw carefully, you sock him right in the jaw, sending him back in the dirt.Shaking off your fist, you rise as he begins to whimper and curse, you bear down on him again and put your claws through his collar to lift him up," You're my friend. I told you that, you are going to stop avoiding me, stop skipping training, and stop complaining about training. We're all trying really hard, and you just make this even harder on us Goldie!" You finish yelling as tears begin to break into your eyes. He stays quiet, though resigns in your grip.
>>28462300This is a different sort of tough love than to what Goldie is used to, I'd say.
>>28462300We are anime as fuck and it is glorious.
>>28462300nicely done, master QM
>>28462300I like this so far. We exercised both friendship and showed him that we're fucking sick of him being a little shit. And we did so in a way that makes us look good in front of the Rockets, who are undoubtedly sick of him at this point.
>>28462300I guess turn to the other folks and ask them to give him another chance. he was just being a bit grumpy.
>little girl punches you to the ground and tells you to man the fuck upJust putting this out there
>>28462300proud of you Ceru
>>28462380I just realize how absurd this entire situation is.
>>28462380>>28462394Ceru's got big little girl balls.
>>28462394>>28462380To be fair.We are part Sabertooth Tiger
>>28462380>Enormous little girl ballsack
>>28462413>>28462412>>28462394I was more pointing out how it would feel from goldie's perspectiveinb4 spoon jokes
>>28462394The more you think about it, the more you realize that the absurdity never ends.Infinite layers of ridiculousness.One of the reasons I like this quest so much.
>>28462393Ceru used Wake-up slap!
>>28462300Balls in his court now.
>>28462436pic is Goldie the future
>>28462374I have pictures for that too. >>28462380We're learning how to kill with our bare hands over here while he goes off to brood. We literally have tiger blood. If we're ever killed, the hunters are gonna carve off a heaping load of CeruHvyFrostSacs>>28462393This is probably a more appropriate picture for the situation, actually.
>STOP BEIN A BITCH, GOLDIE
>>28462436>Get tired of super hard training bullshit>Blow it off because lul can teleportz>Crazy panther bitch tracks you down>Drags back in front of all your peers.>Tells them to tell you how much you suck>Best friend comes up>Ohmanherewego.png>Tells us how much she cares and wants us to succeed.>Suddenly tiger fist to the face>Spoons everywhere.
You use your considerable strength to lift him up, and let him stand as you go back into line, glaring at the other cadets," If it's not good enough for the rest of you, tell him to get lost. Otherwise, you should make him prove that he's better than us."The expressions turn solemn, even Devon's grin turns into a bit of a frown,"Wordy fish." He mumbles, his canine teeth breaching as he speaks. "I guess the Saffron trash can stay so the Ice Queen has something to keep her busy."A glare cast upon Devon is returned by his own snarl. Other Cadets seem a bit conflicted on the whole deal."The Saffron should be removed, he has not respected us." Mable speaks up," Though it is the responsibility of our leader to fix him. I have no opinion." The sheep-girl salutes, a spark cast as she pulls a hand away from her brow.Others speak amongst themselves, though Bruise stays silent, the consensus between them seems to be that he should stay, though a couple may have agreed begrudgingly.Kitty glowers down upon Goldenrod," They all say you stay. Finally, it comes down to you. Will you waste your frosty friend's words, Goldielocks?""She hit me..." The Esper mumbles aloud with a little smile forming on his face.Kitty raises a brow.Goldenrod giggles a little madly as his eyes remain on you," She hit me."He looks at the blood on his hands from Kitty's scratches, going quiet."I'll try. Even if it's just to show you all how strong I am." Goldenrod seems to regain his sense of calm, and with a wave of his hand, his wounds are gone, though as soon as Kitty's glare falls back upon him, you can feel his nervousness mount from where you stand.He looks back down at the ground again," And sorry, everyone."After that, Ceru kept Goldenrod on a short leash. He never missed training again.
>>28462504Well done, Ceru.
>>28462504>"She hit me..." The Esper mumbles aloud with a little smile forming on his face.Oh shit.First Bruise with his scratching fetish. Now Goldie with his beating fetish. All the guys we know are masochists.
>>28462504Heeeelll yeaaaaahWe're growing a little more confident. And Goldie likes it. I like it too. I like this Cerulean. I hope this development continues.
>>28462504By Arceus, we're his mother figure now. We hit him, and now he thinks of us as his mother.
>>28462504>"She hit me..." The Esper mumbles aloud with a little smile forming on his face.>Kitty raises a brow.>Goldenrod giggles a little madly as his eyes remain on you," She hit me.">He looks at the blood on his hands from Kitty's scratches, going quiet.Well shit, now he's nursing some serious grudge and is going to stab us at some crucial moment.
>>28462504>He never missed training again.Job well done
>>28462547>Ceru now femdomsFuck man, why, my brain.
>>28462504Well, our relationship with goldie just got more complicated.Damnit I was already shipping goldie/cerulean in a few years, stop feeding my ship so you can murder him later
>>28462552that is soo fucking true
>>28462504Ygg, we hugged him afterwards, right? Right?Don't really want to lose the hugging thing even if they're cold now.
>>28462552Well, its going to be ackward next time we meet Sabrina. Spoons everywhere, literally.
>>28462552But whereas she hurts him to discipline him, we do it to show our care and love.
>Writing Lavender Minisode
>>28462547I'm gonna hold out hope that his reaction was based in "holy shit, Ceru, the nicest girl in the world just decked me in the face.">>28462552The next time we meet Sabrina is gonna be weird. "Have you been hitting my son? ...Good."And we're all, "We use our claws sometimes."
>>28462613I hope we interact with Alexis at least once.
>>28462551There's only so much bullshit that Ceru can take before she slaps a bitch.We're a nice person, but we've learned that being a huggy doormat doesn't always work. We'd much rather give our friends hugs and cuddles, but if need be we will get mad.>>28462607Which is an important distinction to make, but we are still taking that role.If he's working hard, not necessarily succeeding, but actually working and training, then we get to give him hugs and have fun. If he starts being a little bitch then we get him back in line.
>>28462623>Sabrina and Ceru get together to discuss best way of beating on Grumpy>Ceru uses claws sometimes, Sabrina breaks out the thumb screw.> Grumpy walks in>Spoons everywhere.
>>28462635that isn't lavander.And we should really inform Giovanni that there is a strong medium in Lavander Spire that wants to become a ranger. just inform him, because i am sure that sort of thing would be interesting to a mastermind such as him. and it may end up with her becoming the first medium ranger other than agatha
>>28462635We forgot what happened to her.We could hypothetically visit her in our downtime, but the same would be true for those over at the Celadon Gym.Due to our decisions in the past, we've already shown that Cerulean can ignore her friends when she's getting into her training. So the chances of us visiting Alexis for fun when we don't have a preset reason to (such as with Lilac) are low.
>>28462623>>28462668we would never claw him!That's kitty's deal!
>>28462599I certainly hope we did, at least in private afterwards.He looks like he could use a hug, and he did apologize to everyone.
>>28462672We might want to bring it up the next time we're given a chance to. Failing that, we could talk to Kitty about it.
Obviously, to goldie, a person doesn't truly care about you until they've broken a bone or two
>>28462703I just feel like Kittys is a little to scatterbrained to remember telling Giovanni.
>>28462710Kitty must be a very loving person in his mind.
>>28462668Grumpy is one really messed up kid.Wait until Ceru NTR him by beating up Bruise and Devon, at the same time, while he watches.
>>28462717She never really struck me as being scatterbrained, though. She's got this cutesy girl act, which makes her look unorthodox, but she seems very reliable and, her mannerisms aside, professional.
You visited Lilac at least once a week over the year, Lavender spire began to grow on you, and you managed to keep dragging Bruise there now and again, despite your mutual fatigue from training.The Mikos upon the first floor never stop regarding you as “Visitor, ”despite how often you visit. Asking Lilac about that, she explained to you, as a “friend” that they are always to address people in that way. They give no name to the living that visit the deceased as it keeps the spirits that gather there less likely to try leaving.Bruise asked about the two of you, and Lilac just kind of smiled at that,”I'll take care of it.” She said.That had you a bit worried.Every visit, You'd tell Lilac of training, and the outside world, all the crazy things you're going through, and in turn, she'd tell you of the people she meets, or rather those that she channels.Eventually, she ran out of things to talk about, and she just kind of listened to your stories with rapt attention.Not wanting her to feel left out, you tried to ask about something else, inquiring about Lady Agatha, the unseen Elite that resides upon the top of the Lavender Spire.________________________"Lady Agatha, she is an amazing woman."Bruise sighs, relaxing more than he usually does in this place," Yeah, okay, so. What's so great about her? Can she do anything like that... thing you did before?"Lilac giggles madly at that, her amber eyes locked upon him as she makes a coy gesture with her haori," Oh that's silly, of course she can do much more incredible things!""I've heard that she ate a lot of ghosts a long time ago.." You add in, focusing Lilac's attention upon you.
>>28462756Well we should tell Kitty to tell Giovanni. and then next time we see Giovanni we should ask him if he has seen about hetting lilac into the ranger program
>>28462668At that point it just becomes a practical demonstration. "And we see that if we twist his elbow like... THIS!"Goldie screams. We're taking notes.C: "When Goldie is a jerk, I frost his room down so he's uncomfortable all night long."S: "Aha, reminds me of when I used to make him sleep outside."... this got a little dark.>>28462685I like this idea. We support our friend, and we advance ourselves in Giovanni's eyes.>>28462695What if he... what if he asks us to?Unrelated: Did anyone else notice that we appear to have earned the nickname "Ice Queen" from our teammates? Or he was just making fun of us?
>>28462789>I like this idea. We support our friend, and we advance ourselves in Giovanni's eyes.Did you mean to quote someone else....?
>>28462789>Unrelated: Did anyone else notice that we appear to have earned the nickname "Ice Queen" from our teammates? Or he was just making fun of us?Oh I saw that, yes.I can see how that might later become our "official" moniker when we grow up. It's a pretty common trope.
>>28462789We are Ice, We are bitchingly awesome, We are a Female.It works.
>>28462770Time for maximum spooky.
>>28462812Whoops.I was saying that we ought to mention Lilac to Giovanni because it's her dream to be a ranger, and it advances our standing in the Rockets by making us look observant.
>>28462812he probably meant to quote this>>28462782
>>28462770New theory: Agatha ate a lot of spirits, but they wouldn't stay inside since her soul was already there, so they came out in the form of a baby/Lilac!
>>28462839>ice queen>hugs everyone>friendliest person in squadGood job with the ironic name, teammate.
>>28462843Furthermore, considering our implant choice, the monikers for cerulean water rangers probably don't really fit that well anymore.I wonder if there are monikers for rocket rangers?
>>28462886we STILL need a [x]bruise: jump into cerulean's arms in frightto happen at some point. Because ghosts.
>>28462789Ice Queen is a pretty obvious nickname for us. We're female, Ice focused, and doing pretty well during training. Though we hug people a lot and are absurdly cuddly, which makes it a bit less applicable.And if Grumpy asks for us to claw him then we'll slowly and sensually drag a frozen claw down his back while demanding that he pets us and pays special attention to the ears.
>>28462883No, no one makes fun of rockets. Because the rockets have full authority to kick the living shit outta you as long as they are on Giovannis good side.
>>28462913...fuck, i just got tingles form that.
>>28462913We are the Ice Queen because we are ELITE
>>28462913Ironic nicknames are best nicknames, anon.
>>28462916That, uh, I don't think that's a thing.We just don't have to answer to any other Gym Leader except Giovanni. We can't just beat on anyone we want. At least, if Giovanni disapproves of it.
>>28462948this is basically the equivalent of the huge guy named 'Tiny'I like it
>>28462913Good lord. You've just reminded me of something I was thinking of the other day. We're grafted to a territorial monster, and it's been stated that we'll get more territorial. I had this image of us getting into a catfight with Kitty when she scratches Goldie and Bruise. Because they're OURS. And we're gonna be the one who scratches them.
>>28463011No to mention the fact that the Remoraid is going to make bipolar.
>>28462961>"Lastly, you will report to Giovanni as Rocket Leader. Cerulean, Saffron, and Pewter quarters no longer have any jurisdiction over you. So long as Giovanni approves, you may do as you like. If Giovanni disapproves...">Kitty flexes a claw behind her, veins and muscles of her hand rippling into rigidity as the claw glows with a keen metallic light.>"There will be hell to pay for your blatant disregard to Rocket's leader. Is this understood?"It kinda implies things>>28463055How so?
>>28463087It's hidden ability is Moody which is OP
Lilac nods with an endearing smile," Yes, yes, that story is true." Lilac raises her index finger, one eye closed as she tries to remember."Ten thousand and eighty Evil spirits that once plagued people of the Lavender Spire and church. " Lilac opens her eyes and smiles wide, her ghostly white teeth bared."That was around a thousand years ago.""What." Bruise leans forward, staring Lilac in the eye, searching for truth amidst his utter disbelief," You serious? That's not right. People don't just live for a millennium."Lilac seems a bit confused, her mouth drooping slightly as she leans over to meet him, a small smile cresting upon her lips to carry a whisper," Yes, nobody lives that long."The light of the candles vanishes suddenly, leaving the chamber in darkness, though an ethereal glow remains upon the flowery incense that permeates this place.You hear Bruise scream in the dark."C-c-cerulean!"Your eyes begin to adjust, but it's too dark to see anything very well, this dark preceded only by Lilac's ominous word."Now, now. No need to go out. Come back on, come on." Lilac's voice rings through the darkness as you see glowing spots gather about her, dull visages that must be a trick of your eye as the dimly lit medium bids the orbs back to the walls and chandelier.As the light comes back on, you find that Bruise is in Lilac's arms, you're honestly surprised that the medium's holding him aloft, yet she smiles to the teen," My, my, how forward. Isn't this something that couples do?"Bruise scrambles away, falling to the floor with a thud," G-get away."At this point, you can't tell whether he's scared or embarrassed...>Write in.
>>28463087Yeah, I remember, it's just that I assumed that one of the things Giovanni disapproves of is thinking that one is allowed to beat anyone else without fear of consequence just because they have the Rocket name backing them up.
>>28463087>How so?He's doing the standard "videogame things transfer 100%!" thing that people have fallen into the trap of.
>>28463110I don't know if Prof is doing Hidden abilities
>>28463011I'm hoping we can still recognize hierarchy and chain of command. Think of it as a pack, Giovanni is in charge, below him are the actual Rocket Rangers, and below them is us. Everything outside of it is fair game, especially the stupid civilians who don't understand that we're protecting them. I'm thinking that we'll be extremely possessive and protective of our "things", that can include people. We aren't going to mistreat them, we just don't want them to leave, and we will murder the shit out of anyone or anything that tries to seriously hurt them.
>>28463131Hidden abilities must be unlocked.Ability game effects may change to become more literal.
>>28463120>Ten thousand and eightyShouldn't it be 10800 if you were going for 100x Spiritomb?
>>28463120>You hear Bruise scream in the dark.>"C-c-cerulean!"Heh.Ask Lilac what these glowing lights are. Spirits? Were they lighting this room all along?
>>28463120Laugh into our hand "That was adorable!"
>>28463143What's Crytten's Hidden Ability? Well, if you told us, it wouldn't be hidden at all, would it?
>>28463143>>28463120Pretty sure you said agatha was like 58 years old
>>28463120Come on, Bruise, show some spine! No way you're getting Kitty or Ceru at this rate.
>>28463120Burst out in laugher.
>>28463180He's going full Bruise/Lilac Route
>>28463198i am just implying that lilac is either crazy or they are seeing the time that the spirits viewed or some shit like that
>>28463120Start giggling. Then walk over to Bruise and give him a hug."If you wanted a hug that badly you could've just asked.Scaredy cat."Then ask Lilac about the lights, ask if they're really spirits. >>28463144I'd actually suggest 11,664 spirits. It's 108 Spiritombs worth of spirits.
>>28463212I'd like to believe we're kinder than that.>>28463216I was implying that people stop aging once they're dead.
>>28463166I second laughing a bit.
>>28463120laugh at Bruise being a pussy
>>28463120"Oh my, that is a bit forward of him" plus a small laugh.
>>28463120"Interesting that you would jump towards Lilac~ when the lights go out."
>>28463120Offer a hand to help him up. Full blown laughter is maybe a bit mean, but I'm cool with giggling a bit and saying he doesn't need to be so jumpy.
>>28463224>not 108^108 spirits
>>28463258help up, hug while laughing is my vote
>>28463120>Snort with laughter."Honestly, Bruise, she's lucky you didn't knock her down. I wonder what Goldenrod would say if he heard about this?Lilac, so- what happened with all those ghosts?"
>>28463224>11,664I like it, but it'd make her terribly overpowered later.
Damn candle ghosts and their desire to mess with Bruise
>>28463120Bruise is 14 while Lilac is 15, right?Anyway, I guess the ghosts were spooked when we started talking about Agatha. Heh.
>>28463279so cerulean you are the monstersand then cerulean was ara ara~
>>28463120>As the light comes back on, you find that Bruise is in Lilac's arms, you're honestly surprised that the medium's holding him aloft, yet she smiles to the teen," My, my, how forward. Isn't this something that couples do?"ITS HAPPENING
>>28463293How in the world did you even design the medium system that would make it so 10080 is acceptable, but 11664 is terribly overpowered?How even manage?...HOW????
>>28463174Checked my notes. Agatha's age isn't listed. Koga's is. His age is 58.
>>28463293>QM laughs at slightly higher number>Says it'll make her terribly overpowered later>Later>LATERWHAT IS YOUR SECRET PROFESSOR TELL ME
>>28463293Is it really much more overpowered than 10,080 spirits? It's only a difference of 1,584 spirits, which isn't that much compared to what she currently has.I just like the number better.
>>28463345Aw snap, I messed up there.*One thousand eighty." My bad.1080 Fml.
>>28463347>age isn't listedConfirmed for immortal ghost amalgam!
>>28463373Ooooooh.I see. Right that makes more sense.phew.Dear god man, what do you have planned.
>>28463373Oh, that makes more sense. Always keep track of your orders of magnitude.
>>28463251Hah, didn't see this until after. Seconded. >>28463387"Good luck, I'm behind 11,664 ghosts!"
>>28463387The dome will fall.We all expected the monsters to come from outside.We never thought IT would turn on us.
>>28463251I like this one.Follow up the teasing with giggling and hugs.
>>28463411That zapdos? It didn't fly away.Agatha is just possessing it now.
>>28463251I like it!
>>28463411Nah, it is just gonna be a mass exodos across the mountains with all the rangers working together to protect the camp/caravan of civvies.
>>28463537>Dome going down not being a chance for QM to stretch gore muscles>Not being loss of innocence for ANYTHING that survives>Not being what defines Cerulean's lifeComon man, you know better then that.
>>28463576In his defense, he never said they do a particularly good job of it.
>>28463576well of course there is gonna be like a 50% death rate among the civilians. and who knows how much it will be for the rangers
>>28463347So granpa kamen rider isnt that old. Can you tell us Bruno's and Lorelei's ages?Implants?
>>28463609>implying Bruno has an implantC'mon he ain't that plebish
>>28463609Lorelei has got to be around her 30's, since we're 10. 20 seems like a reasonable time to have a child, considering the setting.
>>28463601Kage will die heroically fending off a legendary, of course.
At what point will our water gun turn into a cutting jet of water?
>>28463634>Implying Agatha won't just ghost float and rip legendaries from the god damn skyAdmittedly she can't take em all on alone, but she'd do pretty damn well.
>>28463651When it turns into hydropump.
>>28463651When it becomes Hydro Pump?
>>28463681>That picAm I the only one that thinks Blastoise's water looks pretty flaccid coming out of there?
>>28463679He means Koga.And I think Koga has a damn good chance of delaying, poisoning, and misdirecting a lot of tough monsters keeping them from getting to other Rangers and the civilians.
>>28463697well of course.But please never use the word "flaccid" again.
>>28463697Yeah it's not the best picture in that regard.This any better?
So... Tg, what do you think will happen first?Our freak out when we realize that we've effectively grafted so many parts onto ourselves that we have no human bits left.Or... Our freak out when we realize that we are the only living member of our original ranger class because everyone else has gotten killed.
>>28463711What about moist?
>>28463719Better AND more violent. Fits nicely.
>>28463701nah, it would basically be espers teleporting the strongest people around in order to kill any monster reported by flares
>>28463701Well, going by how Koga (in the game) leaves his gym to Janine to become one of the Elite Four, I'm thinking Koga is one of the strongest non-Elite Four gym leaders in our region.
>>28463725>No human bits leftI'll say it again, as long as we don't replace our brain, we're fine. It's just like with cybernetics. As long as our brain is human, we're human.
>>28463725i don't think we will ever freak out about not being "human" anymore. it is the stupidest reason to freak out ever.>>28463727i like the word moist. don't see why people hate it
>>28463748well, we should keep our guts and spine too, we keep sub-brains in there which provide minor processing assistance
>>28463748What happens when we get a something that induces regeneration and we heal so many brain injuries that no original brain remains?
>>28463748>as long as our brain is human, we're human.So what you're saying is that you want to be a human brain piloting a pokemon flesh-suit.
>>28463748We added some non-human parts onto our brain with Remoraid's targeting computer.Also maybe limited Esper ability.
>>28463759I think some comedian used that as a bit and got people on board. When my friend brought it up, and even to this day, I staunchly oppose this opinion. It just makes me think of cake.
>>28463725I think out freak out when eventually years down the track cerulean has a child and it comes out anhprrible abomination of nature from all the shit we had tossed in to us over the course of this and dies horribly because it is unable to survive the style limitOr control ICE powers it is born with
>>28463767sooooo? Aqua is still Aqua.>>28463772pretty much
>>28463764>Sub-brains in our spine and guts....w...what?Did I miss something important in anatomy?What?!>>28463767>Regeneration healing brain injuriesI doubt it makes us a troll.>>28463772Sure, why not? Human flesh is weak. It's the weakest thing humans have. Our key advantage is our brain.
>>28463772Such is the fate of all rangers, isn't it?
>>28463772So basically become like Koga.
>>28463782We already have icebloodhow would our womb even work anymore?
>>28463778makes me think of the inside of a mouth
>>28463775Added to, not taken away, that's the important part. We don't want to start replacing parts of our brain. The lobe is just an extra organ.
>>28463792Like an icebox
>>28463782>>28463772Interesting.At what point of augmentation can rangers still be able to bear children? Another question. Is Bruise the result of a pairing between heavily augmented parents?
>>28463792I think we might need to get a surrogate...
>>28463725I don't think we'll freak out about our lack of humanity, aside from being sad about hugging people being more difficult and most people not liking the cold.Remember, our mother is one of the Elite Four, she's probably pretty heavily modded, but we still love her. We aren't going to worry that much about it.Now, all our friends dying, that'll hurt. >>28463782We didn't up going either of those routes, and our Mother was modded. Now, there could be pregnancy difficulties due to our blood being ice cold, but that's a separate issue.
>>28463785>>28463764humans don't actually have sub-brains. dinosaurs did though.
>>28463785we've got big clusters of nerves in our guts that surround the digestive organs. They help with some things involving time and digestion and spatial awareness. The spine is mostly for moving nerve signals, but is important too and I'd suggest keeping it.
You giggle a bit at Bruise's unusual behavior, getting up to lend him a careful hand," She's right though, and interesting that you'd jump to her when the light go out."Bruise gives a low growl," I thought, well.. I thought it was you, 'course it was wrong, and-"Lilac's grim expression lingers upon Bruise as he tries to save face, a slight blush taking her features as she waves a hand at him coyly," Now, if you were interested, all you'd need to do is ask. Though I'm not sure if I'd know the right way to go about this sort of thing..."Bruise throws a hand into his face, his skin darkening as heshakes his head,"No, no, I-""Bruise, it's all right, if you were scared I would've protected you from... From.." Your thoughts drift back to what you had seen in the dark," Lilac, were those?""Ah, you saw them?" Ignoring Bruise, she looks to the candles about the room," Yes, they're all spirits. They light the way for others, it's why those that die here in Kanto gather here as ghosts. Those too far however, they are not so fortunate as to find their way.""There are... There are a lot." You shiver, realizing now why all these candles never burn out.Lilac nods, quietly looking about the chamber," They are not people though.. Something else. Something other.. Though I should speak to you of that another time, it is late, and I have my duties to attend."Bidding your odd friend farewell, you leave the spire, eying each one of the candles as you do so, seeing each one in a very new light.
>>28463792How would a dude even maintain an erection inside of her? Go try jerking it in a cold shower. It's quite difficult.They'd have to use a turkey baster or something.
>>28463824Those are not sub brains. that is just a part of our nervous system
>>28463143Im looking at the list of abilities, and I pray that Crytten has cute charm, while Bliger has defiant. Seriously, have you seen how Barioth keeps rushing and slipping after you break his arms?
>>28463826>a slight blush taking her featuresLovely.
>>28463823Oh, good. I thought I missed something huge there for a while.Still weird as fuck though.>>28463824Oh, well that's less important if something can improve it. My major thing was saying that our personality and higher thinking process is what makes us better then the monsters.
>>28463835oh, it's easy.by keeping it aloft with psychic powers
[Resume]A year passed with your performance coming out as the highest among your squad time and time again, drawing the attention of your “upperclassmen.” Devon, the Houndoom Ranger from Cinnabar acknowledged you as a rival, and while you didn't quite know what to expect, every time you seem to be doing well, he pushes himself to match up right alongside you, though with your modest nature, he starts to do everything in his power to get you to lose your literal cool.Though with your monsters' respective inherent ablities, the two of you did get a bit of tutoring in how to make the most of using evil techniques. While fearful of them at first, you soon learn just how easy it is to slip into a state of empty malice and lash out at your target. Devon however, seems to enjoy slipping into a rage and incinerates his target with his burner sacks. The target dummies always need to get replaced after he has his way, and it takes even more for him to calm down.Kitty prevented the two of you from sparring for a reason, though you felt that he was always itching to have a go at you.
>>28463863Or teleporting their sperm directly into the womb.
>>28463848they're important enough to affect decisionmaking in a more complex way than senses, good enough for me.
>>28463826Huh, the candles really are those ghost pokemon.So does Agatha browbeat them into not feeding on life energy?
>>28463835Insulation, fire type, ice type, burn tenacity Lots of choices
>>28463850Oh yes, I have. Barioth was my hunt of choice is tri. Has full Bari armor along with Bari+ Used it as my answer to all foes. Evasion up is a boss skill for longsword and switchaxe.
>>28463835Use Rawst berry jelly as lube
Why Im imagining Koga going against legendaries like Lord Genome against the anti spiral?Jeanine, you are the new kogan rider
>>28463873So, Devon's implant already evolved, huh? How much older is he compared to us?
>>28463873>DevonThis niggah is a loose cannon. He's gonna go feral one of these days and get himself or someone else killed.Need to be careful around him.
>>28463890I think you mean Aspear
>>28463873I don't like dark type attacks much. Let's try not to get close enough to need them.
>>28463873i feel like we are gonna sparr sooner or later.
>>28463897The more you build up his image of a badass, the more powerful he actually becomes. It's a law of the (spiral) universe.
>>28463918save them for the monsters
You became rather close friends with Mable despite her military decorum when in training. Come time for lunch, she was actually pretty easy to get along with, flipping it all off like a switch. Yet whenever someone brought up training or technique theory, she'd always jump right back into her usual manner.She warned against hugging her at a point, yet you didn't listen, and received quite a nasty shock. Mable helped you up with a hand, feeling strange and almost stretchy. Apologizing for the shock, she explained to you with rigid posture on how her body tends to get highly charged. Too much of a touch, and it just jumps out.She's nice though, and it seems that you both have somewhat of a problem with not being able to touch people.There's some solace in that.__Sanna, your senior rocketeer from Celadon, was clearly unlike the others. You found during training that she bears a staryu much like Aqua, only she doesn't really rely on it as much as him.From her practice, you see that she's capable of using her vines to mark even stones, a feat that actually impresses Bruise.Every time she loses a vine, it's replaced, and she actually uses that fact during live-capture practice.A released pidgey is quickly bound by her vines and then detached, leaving the entangling implements to squeeze and constrict upon the thing while the lost tendrils replicate at an amazing rate. Her capture is finished off by the vines remotely releasing a paralyctic and sleeping powder.Despite your frequent and steady successes here, she tops you in every single way for live capture, and a shady smile shows that she knows it, this is her forte.>>2846390113 initially, going on 14 however.>>28463919Devon is disallowed from sparring. Burns from his flames never heal.
>>28463782Ahaha... we're not gonna live that long, champ. At the rate we're going, we're gonna replace all the organs with no combat usage with monster grafts.>>28463811A fair point. I hope we'll be able to get the cold under control, but I'm wondering if we're gonna end up with a kind of perpetual frost around us just from how cold we are.>>28463826Hehe. That grinding halt as Bruise gets torn between Lilac and Ceru.>>28463835http://oglaf.com/meltwater/1/
>>28463922So that means that Red is top badass?
>>28463873Hmm, we'd actually have a damn good chance against him. He is Fire/Dark, so he's weak to our Water attacks, we take 1/2 from his Fire, and we are pretty solid in melee. However, having two people who both use Dark attacks fighting each other seems like a bad idea, it'd be easy for either one of the two to go for a lethal blow.
>>28463922That or he's just the faker who takes the limelight.
>>28463873>Innocent modest girl meets evil fire user>Guy pushes her to try things that are considered 'evil'>Wants to 'have a go' at usFuck man, he's the bad boy, he's gonna try and push us down a darklol path later!
>>28463922Chitin but no horn. He cant be a heracross.Or can he? Also would be too far fetched if he could use shell smash?
>>28463873A hotblooded rival eh?We needed one of those.Plus I'd wager there's a difference between knowing Evil Moves, and actually having Evil be a part of your type.
>>28463931I think we need water veil.
>>28463873Considering that we seem to be the leader of our group and Houndoom's previous form is supposed to be great at teamwork, I feel as if he was pretty much made to be our rival.
>>28463931Hm...seems we have a live capture expert. Excellent .Grass is way way better for live capture then freezing solid.I look forward to working with Sanna.As for Mable...I still want to hug her. God damn it, why couldn't we have picked Swampert!?by the way Professor, do all our implants have special requirements for evolution?
>>28463933We will live that long, we will end up taking our mother's position amongst the elite 4 settling down and having a child who then turns out just like us with random bouts of madness thanks to dark type
>>28463940Actuallywe'd take 1/2 from fire, but also 2x from fire due to ice.So about the same.
>>28463937Red catched em all.He is the omega
>>28463931Guess we're not the best at everything.
>>28463937>At the top of Silver Peak>All you will find is Red>Red lives like a hermit at the top. No monster dares to approach him, instinctively realizing how dangerous he is. He stays there meditating, never needing to eat or sleep; always waiting for a challenger to enter his territory. Once a target has been caught in his gaze, they are instantly paralyzed on the spot, as if the sheer pressure he exudes forbids any kind of movement at all. Then, in a single moment, he appears right in front of his victim and challenges them to a duel....
>>28463948>>28463970Going off the distinctions made when talking about using Evil against Espers, I've been assuming that our Evil techniques were rooted in using Crytten's instincts to make vicious strikes. Moving with a sort of muscle memory. Devon's seem more like the other type, where you're deliberately tapping into violent, sadistic emotions.I think he'd want to see how we match up in a fight, and try to provoke us, only to be horribly surprised at what we're like in combat.
>>28464002We have Thick Fat man
>>28464002Thick Fat yo! It means we take 1/2 damage from Ice and Fire attacks.So we're at 1/2 from Fire, and 1/8th from Ice.>>28464012But that's all right, we're meant to be part of a team. We do our thing, she does her thing, and we work together for the best results.
>>28464029Wait...Oh shit, math checks out.Neat.
>>28464002You forget that our Thick Fat ability means we take half damage from both fire and ice attacks.
>>28463940Burns from houndoom's flame never stop hurting.>>28463970Huge difference. He's more of a partially insane rival. He just sees you as the next top dog and wants to put you in your place.>>28463985Battle and personal growth exp. Got a ways to go for them overall, though remoraid is getting close. You may want to swap out the guns or request an everstone if you want to swap them out.Water is not yet locked in via evolution.
>>28463940Seems like evil attacks are more animalistic and in tune to your monstrous nature.Professor, if we over use evil techs is there any danger of jumping the slode and losing it?
>>28464020He's already seen us practice our Evil moves. If he doesn't observe us when we practice our other abilities (like our implants' inherent moves or the combat techniques we learned at Fuchsia Gym), he'd be surprised about that.
>>28464044I have a sinking feeling that our water evo is getting locked in whether I like it or not, Professor. As much as I'd love a dragon typing, I feel I'd be outvoted.Also, there are ever-stones available? Neat, usefulWhat's Seels and Crytten's requirments though? I heard someone say water stone...
>>28464044>Huge difference. He's more of a partially insane rival. He just sees you as the next top dog and wants to put you in your place.Neat. I wonder if he was always like that or if his implants are what gave him that pack hunter mentality.
I wonder what would happen if we used Sheer Cold on things point blank by comboing with Feint Attack to move in close and hold them down by jamming both claws into them.
>>28464021>>28464029>>28464043Pure ice types take double from fire. our thick fat halves fire. ending at 1
>>28464044He's gonna go loose cannon, professor. He's gonna get someone killed because he wants to fight something tough.And he's gonna get smacked downHARDSigh. Oh well, at least we're not dark type. We're smarter then that. I assume he has a special counselor or something for that shit.
>>28464084We also have water typing right now.
>>28464044Well, let's just stay cool then and not get in a fight with him.Though if we're lucky we can heal up from the burns through Hydration, but I wouldn't bet on that.I'd stick with the Water stuff, Octillery is really damn good at shooting things, and removing all the Water parts from Seel would be obnoxious as hell. Just remember not to go eating any dragons. >>28464070Seel is level up I think, and Crytten I'd assume is via level up, though the final form is from nomming on a hunk of Dragon. Which would kill us if we still had Water typing.>>28464084We're Water/Ice. Not pure Ice. Remember the Seel and the Remoraid.
>>28464044Can we request an Everstone to work on just one graft, or is that more to get our other ones to catch up.Also fuck you for trying to start another shitstorm right when we're good on Ice/Water.
>>28464044Water Veil would protect us his burns right?
>>28464044I'd love to drop the water typing, but I don't think enough others will.
>>28464044Besides becoming permanent, how will evolving our Remoraid grafts change our body?>>28464061Sorry, I was thinking more that it'd be like, "What's that stupid fish thinking, playing around with Evil moves? All she knows how to do is hug." And then he gets in the ring with us and we go full animal rage mode on him.
>>28464092> inb4 human titans are among us
>>28464070Water typing was already decided on by us. Why are you surprised by this?
>>28464092>counselingHAHAHAyou are funny, man, I like you
>>28464106Just call a vote on the matter and see.
>>28464055Yes, it carries that risk, like when you unleashed frost breath on Alexis. You can't just hold back with evil attacks. They go for broke.
>>28464044If we wanted to remove Water stuff would we have to remove Remoraid's targeting lobe?
>>28464120I'm not. I'm just sad.I wanted a different typing. Not a fan of water.But I'm alright with being outvoted.
>>28464070water stone was for Cloyster
>>28464116>And then he gets in the ring with us and we go full animal rage mode on him.But we wouldn't go "full animal rage mode" against him. That's not our way of fighting. We'd be detached. Cool. Frosty.Like ice.
I'm all for water/iceI don't see why people always want to tweak their type
>>28464147>>28464145>>28464106we aren't ditching water. thats just stupid and OOC as fuck
>>28464137Are regular gyms allowed to use/train dark attacks or just another rocket perk?
>>28464164Two type limit is rough, anon>>28464169I know I'm outvoted anon, no need to be a dick about it.
>>28464164Not sure either.It seems perfectly respectable to me.
>>28464158Whenever he opened his mouth to breathe fire we'd shoot 3 Water Guns down his throat.
>>28464158Say that to alexis, we were extra cool back there.
>>28464116Arms would expand to accomodate the Octillery specialized omnigun. Basically create something of a "chamber" for better firing. External changes wouldn't be quite as obvious aside from that.>>28464175No gym trains in evil techniques.
>>28464179Red has all of them.Guess how. Starts with "T". Red has all of it.
>>28464195We were, though. Completely detached.
>>28464195we were half dead and we panicked>>28464199lets stick with them, it ain't bad
>>28464199What are the dark type elite four members like?
>>28464195That wasn't a berserk rage, that was ruthless efficiency devoid of thought.
>>28464158Fuck. I keep flubbing the explanation. Was thinking of how Barioth has rage mode. I was trying to say that we'd be a fuck load more vicious in a fight than we are normally. We can be coldly vicious.>>28464199Will we be voting on this now, or will it come up when we have alternative grafts?We literally just got the fucking guns put in.
>>28464219there aren't anyLoreliAgathaBrunoDragon dude
>>28464199Oh, so you're not saying we're not in danger of becoming a Blooper if our Remoraid evolves?That's a relief.
>>28464233I think Remoraid's evo is easy to get.
>>28464199What happens when a ranger begins to act too monster like?Also why Cinnabar aproved those houndour graftings, way too dangerous. Unless they are the wild card/heavy artellery corps
>>28464199>Arms would expand to accomodate the Octillery specialized omnigun. Basically create something of a "chamber" for better firing. External changes wouldn't be quite as obvious aside from that.What about the mouth gun?
>>28464233why would be get them taken out? to keep our arms from getting bulky? that's just stupid
>>28464256A good question.
>>28464250Evolves at 25. For comparison, Kadabra is 16 and Houndoom is 29. But Professor can do whatever he wants, really.
>>28464242What's a Blooper?
>>28464239Johto. Karen is Dark elite four
>>28464239Karen, Sidney and Grimsley.
>>28464254Cinnabar is into science!>Writing more recent things... VERIDIAN TEST
>>28464268Fair enough.Devon's higher level then us anyway.
>>28464256throat/neck might get a little thicker, but it might be all internal
>>28464256and the gills
>>28464276Wonder what happens to Aqua.
>>28464276That makes a lot more of sense.
>>28464272>>28464271we are in Kanto
>>28464276Will anyone from our batch of recruits be leading?If Cerulean doesn't, I'm sure we'd be there just for moral support.
Is anyone else disappointed that Houndour doesn't look more like Cerberus?
>>28464257I was just asking. I haven't got a problem with us staying as Ice/Water. It probably won't happen yet anyway. We've only had the one chance to even use the damn things, so it's kind of annoying if we're just gonna get them ripped out right away.
>>28464276>Cinnabar is into science!Hearing this made me smile, earlier today I was imagining what Blaine is like.
>>28464287Living test dummy
>>28464295And? The other regions have domes, so there should be elite 4 there.
>>28464295Are you really gonna do this shit? Yes we're in Kanto, but the other regions exist.
>>28464199How much larger would our arms be? Could we expect Popeye arms? Or would our arms actually become LONGER instead?
>>28464276Awesome, wasn't expecting this.
>>28464199Does the targeting lobe change/improve?
>>28464298We get extra arma erm tentacles for hugging. And for lewd when older
>>28464276Time to cheer on Alexis and then wonder why she's being so weird around us.Also did Sabrina/Goldenrod make it so we never tried to visit her, or have they just erased our memory dozens of times?
>>28464349Shoulda put some remoraid cells on the clit.
>>28464354little bit of column A, little bit of column B.
>>28464323>>28464315just saying that it doesn't matter and Prof probably hasn't fleshed it out yet
>>28464276Cinnabar are the mythbusters. Blaine is Jaime.
>>28464361apparently pokemon cells are invasive. It could still happen.
>>28464354Alexis was part of the group that failed? I thought Caiss (I assume this is the Pewter who died that she's feeling guilty over) just died.
>>28464361You overdid it anon
>>28464373She and her teammates left Caiss to die.You REALLY think they'd still let her pass?
>>28464361We are ~12
>>28464395Yes. Shit happens. Having everyone come out alive isn't a passing requirement.
>>28464324Probably not near that big. it will probably be a few inch bulge
>>28464361We're not gonna live long enough to use them.>>28464349I dunno, I was speculating on extra arms in a previous thread and an anon pointed out that we probably don't have the Remoraid parts that turn into tentacles anyway. >>28464413Doubt it'll even be noticeable once that layer of Crytten marrow and spikes grow in.
We are on page 9. New thread?
>>28464434I think a few more updates would be fine before we'd have to jump ship.
>>28464432we don't. we just have the guns, gills, and lobe
>>28464432>We're not gonna live long enough to use them.Don't be such a pessimist, we can live to age fifteen easily.
Our lifespan depends really on how many timeskips we get.If we jump right into danger at age 12 we'll probably die before 13.
>>28464434someone should archive it first
>>28464459that will probably be around the time we are escorting citizens over the mountains and praying red doesn't swoop down and completely annihilate us.He is the Legendary Human after all.
>>28464488Yeah, don't worry about it. I've got a tab out ready to archive this thread if needed.
>>28464432I was joking with my tentacles post, they are not that practical I think
>>28464515Except in bed.
>All this talk about trips through the mountains>Hasn't even finished first year+ of Elite training.>Been on one mission
>>28464515extra limbs are ALWAYS useful!
>>28464520We are talking about when the Dome goes down.
>>28464482Eh, as long as we work together with our teammates and make some effort at strategy, we should be fine.More or less.
>>28464502We will get lost and pass out after an avalanche. We wake up to find that some guy saved ua and nursed us back to health.> Thanks for saving me. Im cerulean, whats your name?> R-red
>>28464557and we were only saved because were were a cute loli
>>28464520Are you honestly surprised?We're waiting for the story to continue, and so we blather about inane bullshit.Just tune it out if it's not your style.
>>28464515Eh, turning into an Octopus-Cat-Dragon-Seel girl is a little bit much, isn't it? >>28464520I think a number of anons are assuming that the dome is going to fall soon, so things like that wouldn't be too far off. >>28464557>"You've got quite an odd appearance, Cerulean. You wouldn't happen to be a Ranger, would you? You wouldn't mind showing me your grafts would you? You see, I've got a mission- I'm trying to collect parts from every monster. Would you mind helping me out? *grins* "
>>28464577I just think it's sorta funny actually.I hope we do survive.Rather anxious about our first 'real' mission.
I hope Goldie picks up an Aipom.
>>28464557I'm not sure we would care too much about an avalanche, the blunt impact wouldn't be fun, but we'd enjoy being completely covered in snow.
>>28464557>Saved by RedI think you mean we are the only survivor and we see him at the top of the mountain where the avalanche started.
>>28464608God damn it tail hand guyGod damn it.
>>28464597>Eh, turning into an Octopus-Cat-Dragon-Seel girl is a little bit much, isn't it?With our current set-up, I feel as if we resemble a hunter (from Monster Hunter) with the Kirin armor set on. I wonder if that was intentional?I mean. It's another possible title for Cerulean, aside from Ice Queen. Cerulean The Kirin.
>>28464615>>28464609we would just ice beam the avalanche solid>>28464608yes
SoI understand why dark is immune to psychic.I even understand why steel is immune to poisonBut why is Poison weak to ground?
>>28464608They're small, so he'd probably have to get 4 or 5.So when they evolve, that's like 8 or 10 tail-hands.
>>28464646Ground is hard to poison? Thus, it can "smother" poison?
>>28464646Because you can't poison the Earth, duh.
>>28464597> I like your grafts... Wanna see mine? *battle music*Yeah bit I think he is more akin to a force of nature
>>28464660As opposed to rock?
>>28464631We haven't even gotten our shelder armor yet
>>28464646you dispose of poisons by burying them
>>28464653Maybe the tail-hands could be put on his back. So when he evolves, he could look like this.If Goldie becomes a Psychic-Fighting type, it'd just be perfect.....
>>28464667>>28464671Then why isn't rock strong against it?Ground and Rock are really similar.
>>28464684Aipom is Normal
>>28464686because if you bury things in gravel, the poison escapes
>>28464684>Each hand holds a spoon>Each spoon boosts psychic and awkward power levels>Grumpy is the most powerful awkward psychic in the world
>>28464696Yeah, and Normal (and Flying) types don't go against the 2-type limitation.
>>28464686>>28464686Because competitive balance. Which is kinda silly because it pravtically disint exist in gen 2
>>28464646Why is Poison weak to Psychic?Why is Fairy not very effective on Fire or Poison?Who knows?
>>28464653How about... Ambipom+Gallade? He'd be like a fucking Shiva with a hundred fists to beat shit up with.>>28464684YES ANON, YES. I'm glad someone is on the same track as me.>>28464668I was thinking more along the lines of "stuck in a remote cave with a monster." Hahah...yeah, you're not gonna have a battle with Red. He's worse than any avalanche.
>>28464686because the earth absorbs poisons, rock doesn't
>>28464615He would be too ackward to even attack us. He just wants to be left alone. Monstera must be alone
>>28464714because fuck poison that's why
>>28464699My brainMY BRAIN>>28464714>Fairy<
>>28464714psychic is purity and healing, it removes cleans away poison. Fairy is stymied by the poisoning of the land and man's primal emergence from nature.
>>28464714>why is poison weak to psychicTelekinetic barriers>why is fairy weak to fire and poisonI literally have a song prepared as to whyhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKM7fmLnypU
>>28464732>YES ANON, YES. I'm glad someone is on the same track as me.YEAH, I KNOW RIGHT?But even if Goldie doesn't end up with those kinds of grafts, I hope we meet a trainer with a Medicham template. I mean, it'd really fit. Medicham can disappear from the world at will because of their intense concentration, they have access to "aura" which is some sort of innate spiritual power that all beings have access to, and they also do yoga.It's just too freaking perfect.
>>28464732Multi balloon hands imply touching filthy non esper plebs> stay pleb
Everyone received a week and a half off training as the home-rangers prepared this year's test.Like last year, seven teams, three farfetch'd, and at least one that would be required to fail.You heard from Misty that Aqua decided not to quit.Training with the Vermillion's he's become like a whole other ranger, tapping into the power of electricity to defend himself. He bears a military swagger now, much like Mable as you've come to know her, and carries himself with much more confidence. Marine, as you've been told is leading a squad this year. She's been implanted with a mudfish and has been doing even better in her training with Cerulean gym and Pewter. The times that you met her at Cerulean, she had a new fin upon her head, jutting through her hair, and slimy skin aside from her shell armor.You also hear Alexis is in on this too, participating again. Her head bald, and a star tattooed upon her forehead. You stand aside Giovanni as he addresses this year's recruits, receiving the honor of presenting yourself by his side.It is you this time, that adds in the tid-bit about the swiftest recovery of the Farfetch'd will net you a dinner with Giovanni, as you follow him after Kitty.Three days pass, and you find that Alexis's team is the one to come out on top. Alexis of SaffronHaru of FuschiaMarine of CeruleanVictor of VeridianNew rocket candidates... Within the wekk, all four of them have entered the lineup, Alexis gives you a passing glance as her expression is dead and worn.Marine hugs you with her now oppressive strength, combined with her impressive shell armor. The rocket dorms feel so much more at home now.You recognize Haru from the meeting with Janine, curious about his acceptance, and even he seems a bit nervous.Victor though, he's not someone you've seen before. He bears an odd pale-blue skin with the bulge of premature armor growing upon his back. You haven't seen a ranger quite like this one. yet.>Input?
>>28464776Medicham can't Aura Sphere though
>>28464767Man anon, if we had been Poisoned typed, I wish you had posted that.That'd be amazing
>>28464794>and a star tattooed upon her foreheadWELL THEN
>>28464794What will happen when Bruise connects the dots and finds out that Alexis left his buddy to die
>>28464794so... anyone die this year?Also CERULEAN GYM HUGMEETThen see what's wrong with alexis. for the 25th time. Hopefully not mindwiped this time.
>>28464802Yeah, but they'd be able to see it.And if the trainer already had the potential, that added awareness could help them train the ability.>>28464794>star tattooed upon her foreheadWhat's that about? Did she get an Abra -> Kadabra implant too?Anyway, let's go see how Aqua did, then check up on Alexis.
>>28464821does she have a mustache too?
>>28464794Did aqua pass or not?
>>28464794Is Victor part Phanpy?Did Haru commit to Rocket? That would surprise me, a bit.
>>28464821Yeah, looks like someone has an inferiority complex towards Grumpy.
>>28464794Aqua with electricityMarine with mudkipAlexis impersonating GoldieAlexis winsMarine a rocketall of my YES!!!!Victor is a Lapras isn't he?
>>28464844>What's that about? Did she get an Abra -> Kadabra implant too?I doubt it. I think Grumpy is finally being a enough of a not-a-bitch that he's inspired her or something.
>>28464794>Marine of CeruleanMarine passed last time, right? And Alexis failed? So Marine lead this year's team?
>>28464794Well hug Marine back for one.Ask Haru if becoming a Rocket Ranger interferes with whatever clan stuff he has to do?Give Victor a friendly welcome.And ask Alexis how she's been, apologize for not visiting.YFW we've reenacted the whole find Goldenrod thing dozens of times, each time we killed Alexis.
>>28464794>Military swaggerAWWW YEAH GO AQUA>Marine got mudkip AND squirtleSeriously? She's gonna be OP as fuck man.I love itAlexis is doing much better...hm wait>Aqua fails againSheeeeet.Hope he doesn't give up...again.>Victor has Shellder armorI'm calling it.>InputTell Marine we're proud as HELL of her, and high five that shit.
>>28464868A donphas. He only lacks the tusks
>>28464870So she had it tattooed on?
>>28464794Is Victor a Steel type?Hug Marine back in as fluffy a way as possible. All the fuzziness. Introduce ourself to Victor in a cheerful and friendly manner. Tell him that it's hard work being a Rocket, but if you don't give up you'll be alright. Let him know that if he needs someone to talk to we'd be happy to help.And the star on Alexis's forehead ought to remind us of a Grumpy, and of us not remembering something we ought to remember.
>>28464794>we take kitty's spot telling the ranger prospects how it will beI assume we did it like ninety times friendlier?
>>28464794May want to inform Haru of how Janine responded last year, although that only matters if he thinks he's going to be the one to marry her.>>28464865God that's sad.
>>28464879Why would you think Aqua failed?>>28464794Prof, if you're planning to go on for as long as the last few sessions have been, maybe you should consider making a new thread now? We're already at page 10.
We should find out why Alexis looks so dead. Last time we saw her she was doing alright.
man, am I gonna have to archive the thing?
>>28464879It didn't say aqua failed
>>28464917Ending soon, have an earlier day tomorrow.
>>28464794>Hug the fuck out Marine. She can take it.>Let's go talk to Alexis. She's kinda... fucked up. Seems like everyone who comes out of Saffron ends up with a gigantic complex. Maybe take Goldie along for his input.>It is you this time, that adds in the tid-bit about the swiftest recoveryThis kind of thing is so... Something about us fitting in with the Rockets like this is so goddamn satisfying for me.
>>28464913Worst part probably she just tattooed it to get aceptance from sabrina.Saffron are wack
>>28464937>have an earlier day tomorrowDoes this mean you have things to do tomorrow or that you're starting another session early tomorrow?
>>28464930Oh you. You make me smile.>>28464937How soon? Like, around the time you usually ended back when you started the quest? Since we're 9th from the bottom, currently.
>>28464794hug alexis, try not to look threatening
>>28464939I agree with everything in this post.
>>28464956I really do hate Sabrina for taking those memories. Alexis didn't deserve to go ignored by us.
>>28464978Can't be helped. Just another social link to fix up.
Is it just me or does anyone else find Sabrina's "policies" of Human first, Humanity pure to be complete bullshit?I say this because of grumpy. He has no natural Psychic talent. She puts him through tortuous training, breaks his wrists even, to try and force him to be able to bend the spoon. He fails, he then gains implants. What does this say about Sabrina? It says at BEST she allowed him to defile his body with parts from monsters, something she has been stated to be against, and at WORST she forced him into said procedure, y'know her own child, simply because he was useless. Sorry fo ther offtopic i wasnt here for that thread and just wanted to get that off my chest.
so, who's taking wagers on how many times, exactly, we went to visit alexis and grumpy?
>>28464978Gotta build up that pointless drama.
>>28465017as in how many times we were mind wiped?
>>28465012I just think that Sabrina gives zero fucks and only cares about whether or not somebody is able to protect the dome
>>28465012He chose those implants to make her proud. It didn't work.
>>28465052He doesn't need her now, she's a toxic megacunt anyways. He has the Rockets now, he has us now.
>>28465029"Sabrina, that stupid catgirl is back yelling about Goldenrod.""AGAIN?! God, she gets faster every time.">>28465012Eh, she is a turbo bitch in a lot of ways, but our interactions with her did show that she had a lot of layers going on. She's still a deeply unpleasant person, but she's not the pure evil that we thought she was for a long time.
>>28465060>He doesn't need her now, she's a toxic megacunt anyways.I think there may be more to Sabrina than just being a giant cunt.She has the power to see the future right? And she is considered one of the strongest esper right? Who know what kind of stuff she may have seen in possible futures.Imagine her power showing how everything could go wrong, all the time. It would make the best person go mad.
>>28465060Goldy is pretty fucked up.His reaction to being punched by Ceru was hella crazy and it's probably going to lead to suffering later on. It was also sort of adorable in a really, really creepy way.
>>28465115Yeah, she's got layers, and she's still a terrible mother. Ceru really isn't in a position to be on good terms with her.We're doing a better job at mothering Grumpy than she is. At least we smack him for not trying instead of breaking his wrist for failing. >>28465131It is kinda messed up, hopefully it remains somewhat screwy while becoming more stable.I have to admit I am somewhat tempted by Grumpy/Cerulean as a pairing.
Somebody should archive the thread
>>28465155No time for relationships when being ELITE is on the line.Bruise/Lilac OTP
>Implying the star tattoo isn't because Alexis has the hots for GrumpyBoy is she gonna feel dumb when Grumpy evolves and the star disappears.
>>28465169Well, if you're that worried about it.
>>28465155i, too, am on the cerulean/grumpy train.Assuming they both live a few more years.
>>28465179>Trade evolution.How does this work i dont even......
>>28465190Im against it honestly. He is way too high maintenence. Its not very attractive.
>>28465201we take him from his mother
>>28465201he has said dozens of times it wont be through some trading bullshit
Back in the dorms, you give Marine the biggest Arc-damned hug that you can offer her. Your own strength easily dwarfed by hers as you feel your body give to your armored friend."I'm so glad you made it on the rockets! You're awesome Marine!" You begin to cry a bit, out of joy.Marine too,"I know, it's like awesome we get to stay together again!""So, how'd the test go?"Marine smiles, brushing a hand over her fluffy red ears, kind of embarassed,"Well, it was weird leading a team at first, especially with how different everyone is from quarter to quarter."She looks out of your window, thinking to herself,"I figured out how they set the teams up though. I was the close combat. We had Haru as a scout, you looked like you met him before, Alexis was an esper attacker, and Victor well.. He's strong too. He worked better as an all rounder, and second close attacker."Marine sighs a little bit," It was rough though, Beedrill, those stupid little nidorans from last time, we even ran into a pikachu! Victor took care of the rat, but it frazzled me a bit.The rest's not all that interesting really. Having an esper is awesome for capture though, let me tell you. She had the thing sleeping when we walked up to it!"You lay back on your bed, letting your hair spill over your sheets," I was the one that got the bird last year, it was really lucky though. Made me wonder if any of us should really be here, on the rockets anyway." You sit up, looking over to your friend with your feral smile," I'm glad I did though.""The training's hard, and they'll work you hard, but you'll become great Marine, they make you amazing here. Just try hard okay?"Marine smiles at that, flexing her knuckles in, letting her hardened shell armor grind against itself," You know me, just sounds like fun, right?"You let yourself laugh out loud. Marine, that's Marine after all. the friend of yours that just doesn't quit. It's good to have your old friend back beside you again..>End Thread
>>28465205It's the little gestures of affection that he does for Cerulean that makes the prospect of a relationship cute.Once we grow up (if we grow up) and start looking back on our childhood days, and if Grumpy's become more well-adjusted by then, I can imagine how embarrassing it would be for him when everyone looks back on how much of a tsundere he was.
Till next time!>Tuesday 20:00
>>28465252Thanks for running, it was fun.
>>28465238Cool. Thanks for the thread, Prof.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28458817/Here's the archive, cadets.Can you answer this question here before you go, Prof?>>28464324
>>28465238Welp shes gonna die horribly. Deer gods above all dem death flags.
>>28465238Friend who can withstand hugs re-acquired.She even has built in body armor.She probably won't die immediately!
>>28465252>>Tuesday 20:00Waiting is suffering...
>>28465238Good thread Professor, heh. Mostly montage, but still good.>>28465252Looking forward to it.
>>28465252Have we picked up the trick of not freezing things we hug yet? Or are we still working on that.
>>28465268>Physical tank>Physical wrecking ballLet's just keep her away from electric types.
>>28465251> Grumpy opens an old photo album> spoons fall out of the album> spoons everywhere
>>28465252>>28465281I assume the next thread will still be montage time, Prof? Heh.
>>28465286>Water/ground.Nope its grass types that will suck the life out of her as we are forced to watch.
>>28465309Well we're ice. So we just need to stay close and Frosty
>>28464324Something like pop-eye though more stream-lined, Think of an alien laser gun or Mega man buster cannon without your hand disappearing.>>28465282Yes, you can regulate your temperature more easily now.>>28465296just a little. going into Ceru's 12th b-day, and a new character/faction making an appearance. Silph Co. The Shadowruns begin.
>>28465324Sounds like a blast. Waiting truly is suffering.
>>28465322>>28465309yeah, just give her some close-range support with our one hit KO ice powers.A horrible plant monster rushes her, turns into ice, and shatters harmlessly on her armor
>>28465286She'll be Water/Ground once Mudkip evolves. So her biggest worry is Grass which has a 4x damage on it, Electricity shouldn't even hurt her.>>28465324Bitching, temperature regulation.We also have a layer of thick fat, a layer of fur, and the cartilage. So our arms will look bulkier, but it shouldn't be too noticeable.
>>28465324>Something like pop-eye though more stream-lined, Think of an alien laser gun or Mega man buster cannon without your hand disappearing.I'll just assume it to be smaller than Marine's shell arms.Also, in terms of implant appearance, how close is this pic to your envisioned image for Cerulean?>>28459088
>>28465324>>28465347given the combination of widened arms and fur and claws?We'll look like a bear.
>>28465268>>28465272I'm inclined to lean toward death flags, myself. Damn shame too, Marine's one of our long time friends. >>28465251Agreed. If we stick with him long enough for him to get some confidence, I think he'll turn out alright. We've already seen that he can be fun or sensitive, it's just he's usually too fucked up to do it. ... Also, I was thinking about us. We're already the Ice Queen. Imagine what it'll be like when we break down from all our friends dying horrendous tg dice related deaths. Our heart is gonna be the iciest part of us. We'll end up as like... Homura, too burnt out to get close to anyone.>>28465324Silph Co... Silph Scope and the Lavender Tower. FUCK NO LILAC
>>28465324>pop-eyeFucking hell. I wish we hadn't gone with the stupid fucking remoraids
>>28465376>Lilac gets silph scope cybernetic augments
>>28465356Pretty close. Teeth are white though, and the thighs not so fat.I really like it though. Looks nice.
>>28465386It'd be streamlined. That's to say, it won't be like we've got these huge bulges on our arms. Just as if we had more muscle there.
>>28465402The left thigh is pretty big, but what about the one on the right? Just about there?
>>28465402>thighs not so fat.the ass was fat
>>28465402So ProfessorWhat are you doing tomorrow that takes you away from your hungry children?
>>28465201he was traded INTO the rockets, though...>>28465238>Arc-damnedso it's pronounced Arse?hopefully we get to replace the remoraids with arm-canons for frozen hydro pump.
>>28465462>he was traded INTO the rockets, though...As an abra
>>28465470>>28465462Relax relax. I imagine Professor is doing something far more creative for Kadabra's evolution. One that's not as lame as 'trade'
Hey-do we get to be the "leader" of the new recruits like kitty was?
>>28465201Prof commented on it being more complicated than just switching teams.I'm still an advocate of the theory that it means experiencing some sort of epiphany. A mind altering personal experience.
>>28465486I think Kitty's still training us. Remember how the other rocket juniors were a year or two ahead of us each
Well, we're 2nd to the last from the bottom. Guess we won't have much of a chance to discuss as much as we usually do post-thread.It was a fun thread, guys. Adieu.
