Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible. There are occasional roles to keep things organic, but mostly it goes by voters choice. Unless specified otherwise, the best of 3 rolls is the result, and rolling high is good. Write-ins for all votes or always welcome and encouraged. Put your own spin on it, suggest dialogue, add an addendum, or anything else. Just because some options specify to write in doesn't mean that they aren't welcome for anything else. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Where we left off: You won big at the casino. You decided to stop while you were ahead and go to the karaoke lounge. Before that though, you used your winnings to get an Abra. You still have a lot left over, but not enough for a second Pokemon.
"I want the Abra!" You tell the person at the counter. "Big winner tonight, eh?" You exchange most of your winnings and receive a Pokeball. You can see Robin is still looking over the prize listings, eying the others. She lingers just a little longer on the Dratini. You almost picked that one.You still have a good amount of winnings left over. Not enough for another Pokemon, but enough to get a a lot of smaller prizes or a couple of the medium ones."Do you think I should have gotten Dratini instead?" You ask Robin.She becomes aware of your presence, "Oh, no. I mean, you should get the one you want. I was just thinking that Abras are less rare, but harder to catch than Dratinis. It's a tough call.">Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the rest>"C'mon! The karaoke bar is waiting for us." Cash out your remaining winnings>Offer to spend the remaining prize money on small prizes for Robin and Vance>Something else
>>29781537>Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the restNot ALL can be gambler queens, share the wealth! We'll probably mooch it back in a couple weeks anyway.

>>29781537>Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the restLet's be generous friends. Secondary motivation: DRATINIS ARE FUKKIN SICK

>>29781537>Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the restAnd cash, if we need to.As for the name, I want to go a little spooky and name it after a demon or something. Kabraxas comes to mind.
>>29781596If only Dragonite didn't look so dumb.
>>29781537>Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the restAlso, we need to know if Abra is male or female before naming it.
>offer her the winningsMy vote is for Raistlin for the Abra. Something magical in nature.
>>29781537>Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the restNow I want to see Robin obliterate her dad with a dragonite
>>29781624I'd like to know its gender before we put too much effort into thinking of names. At least we probably won't have to offend this one's sense of modesty by sexing is manually, since it is professionally bred it probably has documentation.although Goldie is unisex...
>>29781741>I'd like to know its gender before we put too much effort into thinking of names.Son, that's not how we do things around here.
Shit, the Japanese name for Abra is great, fits our casual naming scheme as well. Casey, and once again, unisex.I am slightly biased since both my parents were named Casey sometimes I wish they named me Casey too, just because
Rolled 11>>29781537Give her your winnings toward her Dratini. Our Robin gets what she wants!
>>29781730I like. Though I was thinking we could have an Alakazam named Penn and a Hypno named Teller.
>>29781826>both my parents were named CaseyWhat, did they marry based on name?
>>29781826Then you'd have been Casey Jr., and that shit just wouldn't fly if it were me.
>>29781730Raistlin, Houdini, or Merlin for a boy, Lina or Morgana for a girl?
>>29781826I'll agree so long as we can give it a hockey mask.
>>29781896I'm down with Raistlin / Lina | Morgana
>>29781537>Offer to give her what's left of your winnings towards Dratini if she has enough to cover the rest
"Tell you what. Do you have any of money on you? If you want to get the Dratini, I'll throw in my winnings towards it."Robin takes out her card and does some quick mental math. "Well, I could do it if I don't...wait, no! I can't accept that. It's too much.""Really! I insist!" You push back. She's been a great friend to you. "You said something really nice to me back at the Pokemon center. Let me prove you right, OK?" You look her in the eyes."I...I don't know. It's really nice, but I can't take that much from you just for myself..." She's a little closer to accepting, but not all the way there.Vance steps in and puts down a small wad of money. "How about we all pitch in? It can belong to all of us." Vance gives you a thumbs up and a wink from behind Robin."Really? You guys want to split it three ways?" Robin looks at both of you."Of course," you say. "Come on Robin, you want to be a team player, right? Vance and I are on board." "Oh... Ok!" She says with some enthusiasm."Great! But since you were the last one to agree, you'll have to be the one to train and take care of it. Don't come to me or Vance asking us to do that stuff. It has to be registered to one person too, so it'll have to be under your name."Robin chokes back a tear. "You guys... Thank you!" Even Robin can see what happened here. Still, you all keep up the pretense. You all pitch in and Robin recieves the Pokeball with the Dratini. You both take your Pokemon out as soon as you exit the casino and start walking to the karaoke lounge.Vance looks at the little Abra in your arms. "So, what are you going to name it?"You glance over at Robin, whose adoring the small Dratini drapped around her shoulders. "Male or female?" You ask her.She squints at it for a second. "Male."[Actual voting starts in 5 minutes. I’ll make a new post. Discuss suggestions]So far I've seen these. Let me know if I missed anyRaistlinGoldieCaseyHoudiniMerlinPenn

>>29782181>Raistlinhuh, never would've taken us for a Dragonlance fan. I wonder if Robin's read it, we could geek out together
I want something classy and with a connection to esoteric doctrines like Jung or Aleister, but I'm fine with Raistlin.
>>29782181>Fizbanif Robin calls Dratini Takhisis or Paladine, we should kiss her on the spot
>>29782258Well it is the perfect name for him. Golden body, frail health, supernatural powers. Only thing it lacks is the hourglass eyes.
>>29782181If we're still making suggestions, how's Copperfield sound?No, forget that. Call him Uri.

>>29782357>nameTo clarify, just like this
You think for a minute. "I'll name him Raistlin." Robin's eyes perk up and she gives you a questioning look. She must not have expected that from you. You smile at her, proud you were able to impress.Your group finds the lounge just a little off the main road. It's an open mic affair where people just put their names down on a list, the song they want to sing, and wait their turn. The five of you (including Pokemon) find a small spot in one of the corner booths. Robin insists on getting paying for you and Vance's drinks and anything else tonight. Too bad you don't have a fake ID. You, Vance, and Robin get soft drinks and flip through the lists of songs.>Sing a fun party song>Sing a soft, sad song>Sing a slow, sultry song>Sing the Escape Rope Jingle Extended Karaoke Version>Other

Predictably, Vance sings a song from a workout montage in some boxer movie. There’s some polite applause, but most of the enthusiasm comes from Vance himself. You notice he’s really started to open up from when you first met him. He’s dropped a lot of his ‘mysterious kung-fu guru’ act almost entirely and what’s underneath is soft and comfortable. Not soft like a wimp, but more like a big, strong teddy bear.Robin still seems a little over excited from getting Dratini, and she actually signs up without anybody prompting her. She sings the theme to some sort of animated children show. She might also be trying to do a dance from it, but that could just be her having a seizure. Still, she looks like she had fun, even if she’s mortified that nobody but you and Vance applaud. She apologizes into the mic and excuses herself off stage.You sing a fun party song. You're in a great mood, and you pour that energy into singing. You point to a different person and have them sing along for a verse, then point to someone else. It's a crowd pleaser. You always thought that you’re a lot better with the flute than with your voice, but you get an applause that’s just a little above what seems like the average here.A fat man in shades in a back booth is watching intently. He's a bit out of the way to get him to join in. The only reason he really sticks out to you is that he nods something to the DJ in charge of running the karaoke machine.The DJ looks at you "Want to play another?""OK, sure." You're having fun, and nobody else seems to want to step up.This time you do D.O.G.A.R.S. You're still not that confident with your singing voice, so this is a great choice where that doesn't matter that much. Again, it's just a little more applause than some of the others. The DJ gives you another nod as you finish up. Guess they want you to keep going. You move on to Piano Man. A few of the less sober patrons in the back sing along.(Continued)

We should come back after we finish up in the city to gamble some more, and try getting Vance a Scyther. I feel bad since he's the only one who didn't get a new pokemon
>>29783323We should not incure the ire of the casino mooks.
>>29783323but imagine vance trying to fight his scyther with his bare hands.
>>29783343That's why we come back at the end and cash out immediately as soon as we get enough>>29783350He'll be fine, he took on a bear

>>29783465Fuck is alakazamite?

You're running the gamut now. You keep going until finally your voice starts to crack. The man in the back gives another nod to the DJ, and then the DJ leans over to you after that song ends. "Great stuff. We're going to keep letting other people on now though, K?" Phew. You head back to the table.Another person in a weird suit with the letter I on the chest steps onto the stage with a small, pink, round Pokemon. "Excuse me ladies and gentle. I know this is unusual, but please welcome my dear sweet Pokemon to the stage."You, Robin, and Vance share a song booklet. Robin is scribbling down the codes for each while Vance flips through it. Raistlin sits in a corner, not reacting or really doing much. Maybe it just always sleeps? You look it over, and stare at it's closed eyes and expressionless face. You have the poor thing lifted in front of your face now, examining it closely. The sound of the pink fluffy Pokemon's song fills the room. You yawn, but keep examining it. You can't tell if he's looking at you, but you sense something from him. Maybe you should take it to a Pokemon center to get....checked out. So tired. Your eyelids are heavy. Maybe it just likes naps. Naps are nice. You put him down on the table and slump against your chair. Raistlin leans against your face.You hear a voice. "Stupid Jigglypuff!" You're eyes open up again. There are four people in weird looking uniforms with big I's on them. They're taking plugs out of their ears and preparing large sacks. "Look! She put herself to sleep with her own song!""Who cares? Just grab her and any other Pokemon you can find. Hurry up too, they won't be out long." Another one of the uniformed goons barks. "Do good and you might even get to keep one."You quickly glance around the room. Every single other person has fallen asleep. You feel very alone in such a crowded space.They don't seem to have noticed you yet.>Try to sneak away>Pretend to sleep>Try waking Vance>Try waking Robin>Something else
>>29783481It makes Alakazam useless and prevents you from using a decent Mega Evolution.

>>29783629Humans don't even find the flute's sound particularly interesting.
>>29783650[All of your Pokemon are still at the Pokemon center, except for your Abra]shiiiiitttttplay a shrill note of the flute then
>>29783650Welp. Time to wake up vance then.
>>29783513wake up Vance and Robin, then have Raistlin teleport us all to the Pokecenter
>>29783650Well, you coulda reminded us of that earlier...
>>29783541No fucking using pokemon moves on peopleThat shit's probably highly illegal.Take out Destiny and use water gun to wake EVERYONE up
>>29783650Fug, wake up vance first. He's priority. Then see if Abra's lazy ass can do something. Wake up Robin if we can spare the time
>>29783685Next best option then i guess
>>29783650Wake Vance, get him to start on the I guys, have Abra teleport us to the pokecenter where we can pick up our poke's then return to reinforce Vance...
>>29783650Can't abra mind shock everyone awake? Or at least teleport us 3 out?
>>29783650"Abra. Please wake everyone up. "
>>29783650Thank youThen if everyone is at the center, hit a shrill note on the flute.
>>29783685I think we can take them. We got vance, an abra, a dratini and all the guys in the bar if we wake them.
>>29783686Do you want the QM to play the game for you ? Stop complaining.
>>29783654-slaps forehead- me too anon.Do this.
>>29783650In that case wake up Vance, then wake up Robin, prepare to fight with Vance while Robin wakes up more allies
>>29783685But anon., what if he doesn't know teleport? Are we sure we have him and he hasn't been pokenapped anyways?
>>29783725This should do.
>>29783650fuckin ipiffany over here GRAB vance robin and robin's dratiny while having abra ether on our lap or just as long as its touching us then teleport the shit outa there!
>>29783650wake vance up. While he keeps them busy/beats most of them up himself, steal a scyther and use it to finish them off. Say that you had no choice, and that the scyther seems to like you.THIS is how you thief.
>>29783745they start with teleport
>>29783745There is no such thing a an abra that doesn't know teleport.
>>29783650Are there any pokemon out of their balls in the bar to wake with the pokeflute? or is it just people and pokemon in pokeballs.
>>29783650Well fuck, then let's wake up Vance and Robin.
Just wake up Vance, he can take any of their mooky pokemon on by himself.
Wait wait guysHow about we get abra to teleport THEM outside? We can go and yell for the police or we can stay inside and wake the others
>>29783801can abra use confusion?
>>29783801then they take our abra
>>29783841It's a casino pokemon, so it probably has a few decent skills. I wouldn't be surprisedHow many people can Abra teleport at once?>>29783855>implying they would go through with a kidnapping in public while drawing tons of attention to themselves
>>29783841I imagine the qm will make us roll for it
>>29783867they would just pretend it is their abra. it's not like we would be there to claim it.
But we don't know anything about Abra's move setWe could ask it to try to do something, but we don't know what it's capable of.
>>29783867>It's a casino pokemon, so I expect it to be level 1-5 and have no additional skills. Especially considering an Abra requires specialized training tutor/tm to be able to use anything before evolving.
>>29783650Wake the Vance and Robin, teleport us with Raistlin
>>29783908It was said last thread that the casino pokes are better bred so it might have some good moves.
>>29783895Then we could refuse and the cops get called because there are four large men assaulting a girl and trying to take her pokemon.
>>29783900we know it knows teleport
>>29783942If we don't know that it basically does nothing but sleep, we don't know it knows teleport.
>>29783933it's probably night time and i seriously doubt there are cops just sitting on every corner. better to teleport us into the casino and then we warn them and let the mob security take care of it.
>>29783962Every single Abra that's exists, has ever existed, and will ever exist knows teleport.
>>29783971That'd work too.It'd be cool if we could just teleport all the the patrons five feet into the air so they wake up after falling
>>29783981A shame our PC knows abso-fucking-lutely nothing about pokemon.
>>29783981His post was about OUR knowledge, not Abra's. Though I don't see how we could have picked Abra if we didn't even know enough about it to know it teleports.
>>29783942We don't know how many people can be affected by teleport and if they get a saving throw or something. Training that utility could be really game breaking.
>>29784019we have a basic knowledge at this point-we read them pamphlets. Abra=teleporting everywhere is pretty basic
>>29783981>>29784019Yeah, and since we never scanned it with a pokedex, and never read anything about it previously, we don't know that

>>29784110>Abra grabs the enemy and teleports them 200 feet in the air>teleports himself to the ground while they fall
>>29784057>>29784110I think this is a bit beyond an abra's ability.
>>29784132abra is suddenly able to wreck non-Flying types with its basic move
>>29784141lvl 100 abra. Nothing is impossible
>>29784172We should train Dratini and Abra together for double battles. Dratini could use ranged moves and Abra could teleport them both away to dodge everything while harassing them with psychic moves.
They don't look particularly tough. You carefully take Raistlin off your face and try to subtly wake up Vance. He's tough, you'll need him. Your put your hand over his mouth as he wakes up "Shhhh" you whisper, and point to the thieves who are taking Pokeballs and valuables off of sleeping people. He nods and you take your hand off his mouth.Your eyes turn to Robin. She's even more defenseless looking when she's asleep. You put your hand on her mouth and gently wake her."mphetmp?" She tries to mumble.You give her the same gesture. "Sshhhhh." You take your hand off her mouth.The thieves are making their way over to your table. You need to think of something. Yes! That's it. You lean into Raistlin's ear. "get us out of here. Use...umm...Teleport to take us outside!"With a quiet sound and a faint flash, your Abra vanishes. You, Vance, Robin and her Dratini are all still in the same spot. You look around and see Abra outside on the street through a window.Damnit! Can they even teleport others, did he not understand, or is he just a jerk? His blank expression tells you nothing useful.They're getting really close now. Robin is shaking. Vance looks ready to pounce.>Use the flute to try to wake people up>Tell Vance to attack them>Make a break for it with your group>Something else
>>29784313>>Use the flute to try to wake people up>>Tell Vance to attack themRaistlin you fucker
>>29784313Fucking god damnit Abra.Attack with Vance and get Robin to get Dratini to use water gun on all the other patrons to wake them up.

>>29784346Would the flute even work on people?Thing is, if we wake people up too roughly, they can escape in the confusion.Do robin and vance have their pokemon with them?
>>29784313>Use the flute to try to wake people up>Tell Vance to attack them
>>29784313Shout as loud as you can. Rush them with Vance, have Robin let Dratini out.
>>29784313>You look around and see Abra outside on the street through a window.Raistlin confirmed for little shit. So... proud...>Use the flute to try to wake people upI bet they'll be a lot less confident when all their marks are awake.
>>29784346>>29784350These 2 at the same time.Nobody's with me for "appropriating" the "scyther" due to "extenuating circumstances"?
>>29784390Vance and Robin turned their Pokemon over to the center with yours. Abra and Dratini are the only two you have. Sorry if I wasn't clear before
>>29784346This, use a sharp ugly sound with the flute loud as you can.Abra confirmed for betraying useless bastard. I recommend immediate disposal.
>>29784313> >Use the flute to try to wake people upLet's keep that one as our last measure>Scout the room for tough looking trainers, the kind of guys who have Garchomps and shit. Wake them upVance's pretty good, but he could get swarmed easily.
>>29784373DAMNIT WE STILL HAVEN'T TAUGHT HIM HYPER BEAM
Vance restled a fucking Ursa. I'm confident he cna handle a couple weedy Rockets.
>>29784313Signal Vance to attack, then blow as hard in our flute as we can.
>>29784390That's why I think water would be better, or even yelling.Why play the flute when we can yell fucking loudly>>29784409No, that's what they're doing. We're not team rocket, we don't steal pokemon.
>>29784409What Scyther? The casino prize one? Because we aren't at the casino.
>>29784409The Scythers are back at the casino, we're at the karaoke joint.
>>29784390It's noise, noise is usually enough
>>29784418Just like a wizard
>>29784390its makes noise doesn't it?
>>29784443>>29784446ah, right, damn. So our only option is to demand it as a reward for Vance after this is over?
>>29784435>Why play the flute when we can yell fucking loudlyBecause a whistling sound is actually much more efficient at creating loud noise than yelling. It's why they recommend whistles for emergency situations.
>>29784493That doesn't even make sense. A reward for what? We aren't helping the casino at all here.
>>29784493Unless the casino is in cahoots with these guys. Shouldn't this place have better security, cameras and all that shit? We know the DJ is one of their guys.Team Rocket operated Celadon City's Casino, so the idea is not that far-fetched.Team Ideas?Team Ignition?
>>29784519for taking out the pokemon-nappers? Considering that many of the people here will have their pokemon at the center, most of the ones that will be taken are the rare pokemon won as prizes from the casino. It would be bad business for them if that happened, and being heroes of the city would surely qualify for SOME kind of reward, right?
>>29784313>>Use the flute to try to wake people upUp, Left, Up, Left, A, Right, A.

>>29784563Throwing my guess in for Team Ion
>>29784580You're jumping through a lot of hoops to try and justify this.It ain't happening.
>>29784563that does seem kind of likely. Put up rare pokemon as prizes, rake in the money, then steal back the pokemon before they have a chance to bond.>>29784680fine, but what do we do then? Abra can't fight, Vance has himself, and Robin has dratini.
>>29784637How does 30 extra Kats help?
Rolled 19>>29784737We roll for seduction.
>>29784737How does 30 extra Kats not help?
>>29784731>Abra can't fightBecause we just got him, just stop. We're not getting a scyther, and if we DO get a scyther it'll probably go towards Vance.
>>29784731Now you're changing the argument. At first you just wanted to steal a Scyther or ask to have one as a reward for stopping this. Now it's to fight these guys?
>>29784759Robin faints due to blood loss via nose

>>29784765>>29784778No, I kinda mean that literally. What do we do if we aren't busy trying to get a pokemon to fight with? What's next after flute?I'm trying run a thief here, since that was in the backstory. If it's stupid, I'll back off.Can we distract them with inane pokedex rambling?
>>29784797you didn't roll a 1. That's plenty for Robin, who sometimes blushes when a single Kat is just thereNow imagine 31 doing the sexy at her
>>29784839You're just trying to push stealing a scyther because you have a hardon for scyther, not because you want to be a thief.
I wonder if we can steal THEIR shit.No honor among thieves, boys.
>>29784839Read the archives, we are stopping the theivery unless it is against bad people.
>>29784828>d100>using roll-overyou're using the wrong system buddy.Roll-onder is where it's at.
>>29784903No stealing pokemon, even from criminals.stealing money and fossils are one thing, but stealing a living being is an another thing entirely
>>29784903Maybe a few of their pokeballs went missing in the middle of the confusion.But don't Team Whatever mooks usually carry shit pokemon? Might not be worth the hassle
>>29784932I fully agree on this. Stealing live pokemon is simply NOT DONE.
Gobble-san where are you? This flute ain't gonna blow itself!
>>29784944Don't steal pokemon
>>29784907>>29784873I guess I just didn't expect to throw away stealing(in most cases) so soon after char creation. Shutting up now.
>>29784932We would be liberating a little puppy from an idiot owner who probably beats him and overworks it. And then yells at him when he gets his shit wrecked by a ten year old.
>>29784839Pick up a chair and beat on the trainers. We started off ready to fight pokemon with a pipe, people couldn't be that hard.
Just based on the things that have happened so far, Kat needs to find a Meloetta at some point.Random thought for the moment.
>>29784973It would not seem that way to the police or to Robin or Vance, no matter what we try to say to dissuade them.
They finish with the table next to yours. They reach for the sleeping Dratini when you give Vance a signal to pounce.He explodes over the table and immediately knocks one of them out with a right hook. The other one almost has time to react before Vance grabs her and uses her by the legs and uses her body to break a table. The amount of sudden force and violence from Vance makes even you pause for a moment. You're glad he's on your side.You out your flute and blow the most annoying, high-pitched note you can. The adrenaline makes you go off key, but that's actually helpful in this situation. A few people around you wake up. Dratini is awake too. Robin holds onto it while trying to also cover her ears.The other two...gangsters? They hesitate before sending out their Pokemon to deal with Vance. One of them looks like a walking green garbage bag. The other is some sort of ball inside of a purple cloud of smoke. It has a mean look about it. They both hit Vance with attacks. You think you one of them yell 'acid spray' and the other yell 'confuse ray'.You run passed the chaos and over to the mic. The DJ is slumped over the equipment. You push him over slightly and crank up the volume. Here goes. You blow into the flute as loud as possible into the mic. The sound is ear shattering. It's even worse than you'd imagine Vlad using Supersonic directly in your ear. The entire place wakes up and several glasses shatter."Lets go! Forget about them!" One of the thieves yells. Those two only have a few items in their bags. You barely make it out over the ringing of your ears. They break and run out the door. Vance swings wildly around himself, striking a wall. That looks like it hurt his hand. His shirt is half-melted from one of the attacks>Chase after them. You're tough too>Try to calm Vance down. He's going nuts>Tell Robin to use Dratini and stop them>Something else.
>>29784972difference between stealing fossils, money, hell even vehicles (remember last thread when we attempted that) and stealing Pokemonand quit getting mad because other people don't like your ideas
>>29784982I'm game for this.
>>29784973You cant steal dudes pokemon. We said that before we decided to steal less when robin was still a mark. Its like mugging an old lady.
>>29785002>Try to calm Vance down. He's going nuts>Tell Robin to use Dratini and stop themWhy not both?Berserk Vance sounds like a bad idea.
>>29784973Where's the proof that he beats his pokemon?You have no idea how he treats his pokemon, you faggot.>>29785002>Get our Abra

>>29785002>Go outside to grab our expensive retard Abra before someone takes him
>>29785002Robin stop them, and rush out to save Abra.
>>29785037>>Get our AbraYeah, we need to make sure they don't nab our Abra on the way out. Recall him to his pokeball. Then try and get Vance to just stand still for a second until he can see straight.
>>29785002Isn't our Abra outside? Use him to stop them and claim we planned it all along, good job following orders Abra!

He's going nutsLove will sooth the savage beast. Kiss him. Okay fine, slap him.
>>29785033Definitely this. He did really well here, the least we can do is help him.They already took a bunch of Pokemon, though, so we should at least try to stop them. Robin can try something.
>>29785220We also have two people we might be able to interrogate for information. We don't have any pokemon to give chase with, our best bet right now is to interrogate, pick up our pokemon and take them to the police, and get the police to chase them.Also ask for a reward from someone. Maybe there's a rich guy who'll give us dosh
>>29785220>He did really well here, the least we can do is help him.Forget about HIM, at this rate half the people here are gonna get punched out and we'll be held for assault or something.
>>29785286They would probably prefer a punch to losing pokemon
>>29785002Try to calm Vance downwe've got two Houndours for tracking, we can find them once we actually have Pokemon
>>29785303Not from Vance.
>>29785303We can't trust Vance to get the criminals in his state anyway.
>>29785286Hopefully they are smart enough to keep out of his way, and this country isn't as litigious happy as america.The smart choice was to let Vance ride the confusion out. We could get knocked out and lose Raistlin. Well, at least we'll get some brownie points with Vance.
>>29785326Getting punched by Vance is like getting punched by LordGenome. You don't get back up
"Robin! Use Dratini!" You grab her and rush her out the door so you and her are able to see the two robbers making a run for it. Robin tries her best to muster her bravery. She hesitates for only a fraction of a second then shouts "Thunderwave!" Dratini uses an electric attack to drop one of the burglars. His bag goes flying from his hands as he hits the floor. Pokeballs, wallets, and jewelery slide out onto the street.You retrieve Raistlin quickly and rush back inside over to Vance. It's hard trying to stay of range of his swings. People around you are running in all directions in a panic. "Vance. I need you to calm down. Look at me! Look at me Vance!" He continues to strike wildly at nothing.>Keep people away from him until he calms down>Try to restrain him>Do something shocking to snap him out of it (write-in)>Something else.

>>29785474>Keep people away from him until he calms downvoting against flashing him because it's such an obviously stupid decision nobody out of a romantic comedy would ever think of it
Also against flashing, I've already mentioned that slapping was a shit idea.
>>29785735Ditto. Touching a berserk martial artist is begging for your arm to break multiple times.
>>29785801It's the same person whose been samefagging for the last couple of threads
pls stahp with the flashing.maybe just throw some damned water in his face?
>>29785474>Keep people away from him until he calms down>Voting against flashing.
>>29785822... How come it too that long for someone to actually think of something sensible?I'm all for this.
>>29785801It's a light hearted quest with hints from shonen, it might actually work.The flute is the best choice because some of them actually cure Confusion in the games.
>>29785822This is a great idea, actually, we're in a bar, there should be cold drinks on the counters.
>>29785822Adding water to acid is not a great idea.
>>29785862Sensible? Anything resembling an accurate water toss will get us very, very close to Mr. Berserk Martial Artist.
>>29785864fuck it, throw some Zhenka in his facehe should stop raging and start vomiting by proximity
>>29785887We'd need to get Dratini to use watergun as an impromptu eye-wash station for it to actually be effective wouldn't we? But for obvious reasons we'd need to calm him down first
>>29785862splashing water was one of the first suggestions.see>>29785502
>>29785926I mean If you add water to acid causes a chemical reaction which may be highly unpleasant.
>>29786011Not too much, actually. The reason you add acid to water instead of the other way around is to avoid splashes. The closest thing I can think of to a "water-acid chemical reaction" is the crazy amount of heat liberated when water dissolves sulfuric acid (sulfuric acid really likes being dissolved).
>>29786011Then what's the point of eye-wash stations? I don't doubt you since I slept through chemistry but still
I have a solution that's not as bad as flashing him, kiss robin.
>>29786070>>29786062I suppose you are right. I always just get told "add acid to water not the other way around" but Thats in beakers and shit.
>>29786102I'm fairly sure that's just because the acid would splash out if you added water to acid, while water splashes out if you add acid to water.
>>29786093While I am generally in favor of Robin-kissing plans, A: would this REALLY shock him at this point? B: He might not even notice it if he gets distracted (also a weakness of the dumb flashing plan).
>>29786140Makes sense. I didnt pay a whole lot of attention to it and try to avoid getting hit by acid in the first place. Judging from my lab coat I am not terribly successful.
>>29786140It wouldn't splash unless you were being too careless. The problem is acid fumes. More acid means more fumes, and more acid is what you'll have if you're trying to dilute it that way.
>>29786197To be expected. I didn't really work with acids much, but at the end of the day, despite usually working with tiny amounts of chemicals in micropipettes and microcentrifuge tubes, I'd look at my lab gloves and wonder "where the hell did those stains come from?".
I honestly don't care what we do as long as we don't get within arms reach of him.
This is a rather odd topic to derail to.
I wonder if Gobble expected so many chemistry experts in here.Couldn't water just not react with Acid Spray's acid because Pokemon acid doesn't work like real world's?
You keep people away from Vance as best as you can. You try to make a circle around him and stop any of the panicking people from getting too close. "Vance! Look at me Vance! You need to calm down!" You need to do something. This is getting bad. "Take a good look!" You lift your shirt. He looks at you for a second then smashes another table, turning it into debris. You can't help but visualize that table as your ego before getting back into the seriousness of the situation.A middle aged woman runs passed you and into Vance's perimeter of violence. You push her down and out of the way a fraction of a second before Vance's arm swings around, missing her by a hair. She catches herself before she hits the ground.You grab a glass of some sort of drink, water maybe, and throw it in his face. That gives you an opening and you slap in as hard as you can in the face. Something has to work! As you land the slap, you feel what can only be a canon ball strike you. You're sent spiraling back until you crash into a table.You don't know how long it lasts, but you fight against the darkness encroaching on all sides of your vision. It could be seconds, it could be hours. All sense of time and space are gone as you only see a narrow tunnel of vision.The world comes into focus once more. You see Vance looking over you. His rage has been replace by horror and worry."Oh no...I didn't mean to. I'm so sorry. Kat. I'm so sorry. Please."A dull pain throbs somewhere in the background of your consciousness.>Tell him to chase after the last goon. Nobody should lose their Pokemon>Get up and chase after the last goon yourself.

>>29786334I didn't think I looked that bad..>check on robin
>>29786806Confuse ray, and pain from acid spary makes for a very wild bout of "smash smash," it was a really stupid idea some dumbass(es) wanted because they thought it was funny.
>>29786857It was a joking piece of monologue from Kat's perspective.>Show a dude tits>Get decked>"I didn't think I looked that bad.."
>>29786885That would be acknowledging the shitty suggestion got worked in, so let's not.
>>29786935Nothing like headcanon
>>29786892>>29786935I wasn't suggesting saying it as an action, I was explaining what I thought was just a joke that anon didn't seem to get.
"What are you doing looking after me! Get that last goon before someone loses their Pokemon you idiot!" Vance nods then rushes out the door. You take a second to gather yourself. You can do this. Just get it together. You feel your surroundings, your thoughts, your logic and consciousness spill back into the empty container that seconds ago was your mind. Where you are and what exactly is happening comes flooding back. You stagger passed the various strangers to the door then look for Robin. You see her and Vance chasing after someone way down the street. Vance rushes passed Robin.You're focused now. You're friends might need you. Vance is tough, but you have to make sure that Robin is alright. You will away the remaining fog and burst into a run after them. You can't clearly make it out exactly, but you see the man they're chasing throw something behind himself and take off down a back alley.As you catch up, you see Vance, Robin, and even gathering the goods he dropped. Robin pants, "I think this is everything." She looks at your face and you can see her expression turn to worry. "Are you alright?"Vance looks guilty.>"I'm fine, no thanks to Vance.">Ignore her. Ask if she's alright instead.>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alright>Lie to Robin about what happened with you and Vance. He looks like he'd rather avoid the topic>Something else
>>29787030>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alright
>>29787030>>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alright>Head back to the parlor and gather up the other belongings too
>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alright"I'm alright. Vance has some viking in him. How about you?"
Rolled 73>>29787030"Vance knocked me out. I don't think I can have your babies now, Robin."
>>29787030>Tell her you're fine, ask if she's alright tooo
>>29787030Where is our Abra?!
>>29787030>"Just a little friendly-fire. No big deal."
>>29787030>Ignore her. Ask if she's alright instead.We can just gloss over it and let it lie.
>>29787030"This fucking asshole used some berserk laser on Vance and made him hit me. Vance feels bad but I'm cool with him, he just owes me some Moomoo Milk."
>>29787030I'm fine, well... apart from my pride
>>29787030Tell robin what happened. Forgive Vance this time, but if he ever does anything like that again he's out.
>>29787093>I don't think I can have your babies now, Robin."We're no longer fit to be a bride!>>29787104We picked him up before we tried to manhandle a martial artist
>>29787030>'Been better. Anyway, let's return the goods to the patrons at the bar, then get some rest'
>>29787030>>Something elseWhere did Raistlin go?
>>29787030>>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alright
>>29787148>>29787138>>29787104Oh shit, sorry for overrracting, I ctrl+f'd Abra and didn't see mention of it, but Gobble called him by name that time.
>>29787148We recalled him before getting punched by Vance
>>29785474>You retrieve Raistlin quickly and rush back inside over to Vance. It's hard trying to stay of range of his swings. People around you are running in all directions in a panic. \No worries
>>29787133It's not really Vance's fault bro, he got hit with Pokemagic. Do you get angry at somebody in a game when a vampire dominates them into cleaving you in half?
>>29787030>>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alrightI almost chose lie there, but we said we'd be honest with her. Congratulate Vance on taking out half of them in the first couple of seconds, it would have been bad without him
>>29787133No.It's not his fault you people tried to use physical force on someone twice as big as us who just broke a table with someones body.
>>29787249If anything we should stop him from paying for our meals from now on.
>>29787311woah hold on there, there's no need to go crazy
Rolled 27>>29787030>Forgive VanceHe couldn't help that he went berzerk.
>>29787030>Forgive Vance, tell Robin what happened and that you're alrightAlso make sure to secure these guys so the police can take them in.
>>29787249>twice as bigHes not that big. Hes bigger.
"I'm fine, Vance took out like half the gang himself, I just got in his way.""Also found out: he's not that into the tatas."
>>29787497Could probably leave out the flashing part. no one must ever know
>>29787497leave out the tatas part.nobody must know our shame
Rolled 68>>29787497Lets not tell her about our flashing him.
>>29787497This is a poor idea.
>>29787512>>29787534>>29787549it's unlinked and spoilered, guys, not an actual vote. I just needed to vent my homosexual-teasing.
"Vance knocked me on my ass, but I'm fine now." Vance looks away ashamed. "Vance, it's alright. I know that you weren't all there. We're cool." You try to brush it off as no big deal in the hopes that he does the same. He gives you an appreciative look."Are you sure?" He asks. He looks like he wants to touch you on the shoulder or something, but he doesn't do it."I'll live. That was an accident Vance. You were confused. I forgive you. Besides, if it weren't for you, that could have been a lot worse."Vance looks like a huge weight has lifted off of his gigantic chest. Robin pats him on the back and you join in. You congratulate Robin on her quick thinking with Dratini too. The three of you make your way back to the karaoke lounge. You're greeted by applause from the crowd. People surround your group to shake hands and thank you, Robin, and Vance. You're still a bit out of it and do your best to smile and return handshakes. The police arrive after a few minutes and get statements from everyone, including your group. The three caught thugs are carted off by the cops. For the second time in just a few days, you find yourself giving the police a report. Once again you're not in trouble, you're actually helping them. It still feels just as weird."And the last Team Imperium member just dropped his stolen goods and ran?" The officer asks. Robin confirms the statement. Team Imperium? You'll have to ask about that later.A short, wide man with sunglasses (at night?) pushes passed the police to get to you. You recognize him as the man that was giving signals to the DJ. "Kid, I can tell by the look on your face that you have no idea who I am. That's alright, that means what I saw back there was genuine and not a show for the big dog. I represent the Devon Corporation. It's based in Hoenn but we're making real good growth here. Anyway, I'm what you might call a talent scout. I find promising young trainers like yourself, and give them a helping hand." (Continued)
>>29787580>talent scoutFuck no.
>>29787854'Forget it man, I ain't wearing no freaking wire. You find yourself another patsy, man!'
>>29787904>>29787896Now now, lets hear him out first
Rolled 27>>29787918SCAB! FUCKING SCAB!
>>29787854>Anyway, I'm what you might call a talent scout. I find promising young trainers like yourself, and give them a helping hand.That sounds familiar.
>>29787918What this anon says, can't hurt
>>29787896>>29787904It might be a "advert our products on your Poke balls or something and you will get money" deal, which I'd be okay with, so long as we're not advertising anything too horrendous.
Rolled 52>>29787975Not fighting the man. I don't think scab's the right word.Narc?
>>29787984What if it's a "Use our new Poke-Device so people get interested" deal. We might get a free Bicycle!
>>29787984I'm not okay with it, we're already fine as is.
>Inb4 we become PMC's for Devon Corporation
>>29788002a narc is a DEA agent, so no
Isn't our Houndour named Devon?
Rolled 91>>29788019Yeah, those!Thanks.
>>29787984>>29788003This guy barely knows we're a trainer. We had an Abra sitting with us, but didn't actually fight. He was interested in our voice. At least I hope that is all, otherwise the plot-magnetism is turned up a little too high.
>>29788021Silph Co probably pays better...Not to mention the incrediable intercompany poke-trade network...
>>29787854>mysterious man who hides his face approaches pretty young teen claiming to be a "talent scout">"Eeeyy gurl, you wanna bea model(trainer)?">yougunnagetraped.jpg
>>29788044Yes. He was no doubt named after the AoPH character who is Houndoom'd, who is meta named after the Devon corp.
>>29788054Dude, people in pokemon give out Bicycles for little to no provocation. There's a high chance it involves giving us a Bicycle.
>>29788105We have an Abra to teleport us.
its probably a sponsor deal.we just shill Devon products and only use Devon products and we get money.and if it is, we should totally do
>>29788012I work at a university lab.We have no shame. Every single department, building, part of a building, room, and part of a room will eventually be named after some wealthy donor. So long as it's nothing shady, I say go for it.
>>29788127Nope, not going for it. Kat really doesn't seem like the person who would become a corporate whore
>>29788124Yea, that worked out pretty well last time
>>29788124That worked well when we tried to escape.
>>29788003Pokenav or Devon scope, or ball variations more likely.
>>29788142How is that related to being a pokemon trainer?>>29788185>>29788193>Surprised that our new Abra which we've never used and never trained did somethign wrongWhat did you even expect?
>>29788124Worked out real well earlier didn't it? besides abras need to sleep for like eighteen hours a day.
Rolled 59>>29788166What about the regular kind?
>>29788216Abra are still aware of everything going on while asleep.
>>29788166selling out means compromising your values or beliefs in exchange for money.I fail to see how it conflicts with friendship, winning, banging Robin, or acquiring money
>>29788214I was aiming for "I see no problem with becoming a corporate shill. I'm used to it, kinda".Of course, if the guy comes off weird, I'd say no, and Kat would probably take some convincing for it to be a realistic deal.
I'm for free equipment and easy money, assuming that's where this is going.
>>29788315I also want to hear what fat loot he is offering before we turn him down.
>>29787854"All we ask in return is that you wear some of our clothes, keep trying your best to get the rest of your badges and make a good showing at the league, and look good doing it. You play your cards right, you might even make it big! Commercials, TV spots, lots of great potential to get your face out there." He turns to Vance. "And you! What sculptor carved you? Have you ever done any modeling? Any professional wrestling?" He puts his arm around Vance now.Vance politely removes the man's arm. "Devon Corporation? Kat, is that why you named your Houndour 'Devon'?""I just thought it was a nice name." You're feeling a little out of your element. You don't know much about the business world. This guy might just be some kind of grifter though, better play it cool.He puts his hand on his chest dramatically. "Kid! You're breaking my heart here! You named your Pokemon after our company?" He either didn't hear you or chose not to. "Without even getting a sponsorship deal? Tell me there's more of you! Is this not a match made in heaven? This must be fated by the stars themselves! This is destiny! Now look, I have to ask, how many badges do you all have?"You're not sure how honest you want to be. You're not totally convinced this guy is legitimate. Robin takes the choice from you. "None yet. We just got in town. She's going to challenge the gym and get her first badge soon!" Robin thinks she's being helpful."That put's me in an awkward position. I think you've got loads of moxie, guys, I really do, but our shareholders need a little more than just 'they've got moxie' when it comes to the people we sponsor. If they were risk takers, they wouldn't invest in such a sound company, ya' see?" He hands each of you a business card. "The second you get your sixth, no, fifth badge, you call me. I mean it, accept the badge in one hand and dial my number in the other." >“It’s a deal!”>"We'll see.">"No thanks.">Ask a question (write-in)>Something else
Rolled 86>>29788358"...we'll see..."Chuck it as soon as he walks away.
>>29788358>>"We'll see."if he ain't sure we ain't sure (I think we totally should though, fame, money, and power for doing shit we were going to do anyway man!)
Rolled 14>>29788358>Write-in"And what's your angle here? You get a percentage?"
>>29788358>"We'll see."Might as well keep the option open. Though I don't really see it panning out so I have no problem if we refuse him
>>29788358>"We'll see."He actually does seem a little skeevy. I'm inclined to turn him down.
>>29788358I see no mention of anything that we would get out of this deal.
>>29788358I imaged Kat in a NASCAR jumpsuit full of Pokemon logos, I laughed then felt bad>No Thanks
>>29788358>>"We'll see."No reason to be polite and still have no intention of doing it. As someone put we could just chuck it later if we want.
>>29788459Free merchandise at the very least it seems, by the point he'd take us though I'll doubt we will have money problems.
>>29788358>I know the kind of publicity the Elite Four, the Champion gets. If I make it big, I make it big even without you. Why lock my options now? What are you offering me?
>>29788358>>"We'll see."What do I get out of this?
>>29788459we can talk terms once we get famous
>>29788358>"We'll see."I don't see why everyone is disinclined to try to get money.
>>29788358>"We'll see."No sense asking for specific details about how exactly they could help us, it's too far away, and the offer will change depending on later circumstances. No reason to burn any bridges now, but by the time we have five badges, we'll likely have enough momentum already.
>>29788484Eh clothes, we have clothes. He didnt offer us anything useful, not even a bike.
>>29788358>"We'll see."Might as well keep the card just in case.
>>29788559because he isn't offering it to us yet? we aren't good enough to be sponsored yet
>>29788607Generally if you want people to work for you you should offer some incentive. If he wasn't so skeezy I wouldn't be worried but since he is it couldn't hurt to ask what we could expect to gain from a deal.
we can always look into seeing if this guy is legit or not.as long as we read the fine print, we should be fine
>>29788358 >>"No thanks."
>>29788358>"We'll see."Turn it around on him using some of that Kat charm. Potentially try to sweeten the deal by convincing him that we might just get snatched up by a better sponsor by then.
