Sober-ish edition.http://s4.zetaboards.com/Pokemon_Tabletop/topic/10038435/1/ PTU 1.04 is out. Not related to this quest, but I'm a fan.Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pokemon%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/GobbleQMPokemon, items, and summary: http://pastebin.com/tSNKt0WmFAQ and general concepts: http://pastebin.com/Ht1Q5E1pGeneral rules: There is a 10 minute voting period after each post, and 5 minute voting period for combat votes. 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. Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as it comes up.----"Well, I'll leave you be. It's late and I'm sure you're tired." For the first time, you actually pay attention to his name tag. Mr. O'Telier. "If you ever stop by any of these establishments, tell them I sent you. They'll treat you well. If you'll excuse me, I need to see about getting a refund on my Pokemon Pest Removal service." He stops as your group gives him a look. "Oh, it's a humane service. They just relocate Pokemon. I'm just calling because they only swept for Ghost types and nothing else." With that, he walks off to the front desk.(continued)

You yawn. "I think sleep is a good idea." The others nod, and you all get ready for bed.As you're crawling into bed, you hear Vance and Robin still talking. "So Robin, are you in for tomorrow?""Sure! It'll probably be fun."You can't help yourself. What are they doing together tomorrow? You keep your voice calm and casual. "What are you guys talking about?"Vance turns to you. "Oh, sorry. Robin and I were talking before. I found a bunch of flyers asking for temporary workers from all the different hotels and spas. Robin and I were going to spend tomorrow working to get a little extra money.""We didn't think you'd be interested, since you've got a lot of money right now," Robin adds. "You're welcome to join us, if you want. A lot of trainers take odd jobs between gyms. I thought we could spend another day here in Aquapolis, then take on the gym tomorrow night or early the next day.">You'll spend tomorrow training your Pokemon. A whole uninterrupted day can net a lot of progress.>You're in. It couldn't hurt to earn more money>You're challenging the gym first thing in the morning. You just can't wait.>Something else>>30307321I like you. I needed some music. These extended versions will be perfect for my upcoming tabletop quest.

>>30307408>You'll spend tomorrow training your Pokemon. A whole uninterrupted day can net a lot of progress."You know I don't really mind you guys mooching off me for a while though, right? Just sayin'"
>>30307408>>You'll spend tomorrow training your Pokemon. A whole uninterrupted day can net a lot of progress.
What will we argue about today I wonder?Did we ever learn what moves Leviathan knows?
>>30307611Presumably still splash and bounce, since she just evolved.
>>30307630Gyarados evolve at 20, taking that into account it should know Splash, Tackle, Bounce and Bite.
>>30307630They usually get bite when they evolve and since it evolved it probably knows tackle.depending on its temperament, I think we should use it in Aquaopolis, we have Dan and Trunks for type advantage and Leviathan's own water typing gives a bit of resistance and its fucking strong on its own.It really depends on how it reacts to us though. worth looking into at the very least.
>>30307758If we take it out, we should ask the professor if he's done with tests first. We could put some training in with it, and give him Destiny, since Destiny has the same occurance. But he needs to be done with Gyarados first.
>>30307758Ehh If we are going in for a gym battle we should stick to the guys we know.Should still take a look at him afterwards though.
>>30307408>You're in. It couldn't hurt to earn more moneyLets earn some honest money for once.
"Thanks, but I'm good. I want to get in a lot of training tomorrow." You try to think of the best way to say the next part, but it's hard. You're not used to paying for other people, and you haven't had a lot of people in your life extend you many favors. "I..umm... Look, if you guys need it, I don't mind paying your way. You're...You're my friends. It's what they do, right?"In the darkness you can still see them smirk. No, not smirking, smiling. There's no scheming or ulterior motives. You'd be able to read them if there were. "Well, come on, say something," you push. They're just looking at each other and you and smiling and it's creeping you out.They both move in to hug you. "Thanks," Vance says. "That means a lot."Robin squeezes you tight. "I know that was hard," she whispers in your ear. Oh sure, NOW she an pick up on these things. You've had enough of being on this side of the emotional flow. "OK, OK, don't get weird on me. So we're settled then right? I'll cover you guys."Robin and Vance both exchange a look. "We don't want to take advantage of that if we don't have to. We'll still work tomorrow since it's a good chance at some quick money.""But we'll keep that in mind if it comes up." Robin adds.With that settled, the three of you get to sleep.The next morning you wake up to the sound of Mr. O'Telier knocking. He's delivered a great breakfast. "Again, thank you all so much. I'm already getting some reservations." He leaves the cart and excuses himself.Robin and Vance down their meals quickly before heading off to get some work. That just leaves you and the day alone. You'll have a lot of time to get training done.You'll have to decide who to train first. You'll have all day, so you can spend time with each Pokemon.>Devon (Houndour)>Zappy Dan (Magnemite)>Vlad (Golbat)>Destiny (Horsea)>Trunks (Phantump)>Raistlin (Abra)>Leviathon (Gyarados)>Something else
>>30308058>Devon (Houndour)Gotta respect our original.
>>30308058>Trunks (Phantump)First: horn leech>RaistlinConfusion>DevonDon't neglect
>>30308058>Trunks (Phantump)Got to get that hornleach down.
>>30308058Zappy Dan and Vlad. Vlad trains Dan's speed while Dan trains Vlads dodge...
>>30308058>Destiny (Horsea)Work that horse(ea)!
>>30307880Leviathan would make a great 3rd, assuming he's loyal. which is my only potential problem with it.Zappy Dan and Trunks are shoo ins but the others I'm not hot on for that battle.Raistlin still needs more imoVlad would screwed if he gets knocked into the water and iirc the leader has the field set to make calling them back harder.Devon....haha no.Destiny maybe. offers 1/2 resistance to water but right now Levianthan is much>>30308058>Trunks (Phantump)horn leech needs to be learned
>>30308139Yeah but even with the type advantage he is less experienced than Destiny.Also he is huge as balls, where are we going to train him in town?
so uh gobblepick your images more carefully when announcing in qtg, yeah?
>>30308058>Trunks (Phantump)Horn Leech. He can use it against trees or some other living plant so we can tell if it's effective or not.>Devon (Houndour)Work on that Dark Pulse. Speed up the charging process.>Zappy Dan (Magnemite)Not sure. Possibly special attack training. Just have him shoot targets.>Vlad (Golbat)Test out his new speed. Get him a new physical attack.>Destiny (Horsea)Have Vlad annoy her again. That worked wonders last time. Just make sure that she doesn't outrage, because that could be bad.>Raistlin (Abra)Find out if he's able to teleport anything with himself. Could be real handy in future.>Leviathan (Gyarados)I don't have the foggiest idea of what to do here. Find out what moves she knows, I guess.
At some point I would like to test if Dan is submersible. Like I don't want to find out he short-circuits if he falls in the water, and the idea of using a Sonic Boom underwater is thrilling. Dat 4.3x propagation factor.
>>30308296Think that would cause cavitation to occur?
You'll start with Trunks. He's a grass type, and there's the upcoming water gym challenge, so it only makes sense. He's eager to learn, but doesn't have much real experience yet."Trunks! Come on out!"You have lots of time. You figure you can finish up Horn Leech, and maybe even get some other training in. You got some studying in the other day, so you're feeling good about starting another move.>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on a stat (Specify)>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on learning Shadow Claw(Specify)>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on learning Will-O-Wisp(Specify)>Finish Horn Leech training, try to learn about his ability>>30308203Right? Wow
>>30308414>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on learning Will-O-Wisp(Specify)Obnoxious status pokemon for the obnoxious status trainer
>>30308414>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on a stat (Specify)And attack power.
>>30308414>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on learning Will-O-Wisp(Specify)We must be the most infuriatingly obnoxious trainer to battle in the world.Parafusurn.
>>30308414>>30308443This. And Will-o-wisp is boss, cripples any physical attacker.
>>30308414>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on learning Shadow Claw
>>30308485according to the games you can't paralyze and burn someone at the same time, somehow. Might have to settle for Trunks just Leech Seeding, Confusing, and Burning. + Ingrain for lolMoreHealz. (imagine if he has harvest; I actually just like that mental image: eat a berry, 15 seconds later the same berry is growing off one of his branches, eat the berry, etc.)
>>30308569He should have an offensive move too.
>>30308414>Finish Horn Leech training, focus on learning Will-O-Wisp
>>30308635If I remember correctly, we aren't limited to 4 moves in this.
could we train combo moves? such as stringing two attacks together under one command?
>>30308649Oh really? In the long run we could add Curse as well, then.
>Horn Leech, Three-Way Investing
You find a small space with some trees and rocks just on the edge of town. It occurs to you that this might get messy."Alright Trunks! Let's finish up that Horn Leech training." Trunks keeps trying it on a nearby tree you point out. Every time he tries it, he looks to you for approval. As cute as he is, his neediness is a little tiring. He's a quick learner though, and he seems to be pulling the move off flawlessly after a short while. He seems more confident and powerful in his attacking in general too."Great job, Trunks!" You pat him on the head. He snuggles up to you. "Now let's focus on Will-O-Wisp."He immediately takes a stance and prepares for more training. You base a lot of what you tell him from what you saw the Vulpix doing. He seems to be able to pull it off on a very still, close, and non-living target like a rock, but you're not sure how reliable it'll be in an actual battle. Still, that's a lot of progress. "Alright Trunks. Good job. You should rest up for now." Trunks mews cutely. You give him one last pat before returning him."Devon! Come on out!"The dark Houndour appears, ready as always. He licks you a few times, then sits and starts scratching his ear.>Try to learn Rest. With Early Bird, it's a great idea.>Try to learn Flamethrower. Robin's Houndour knows it.>Bite should be easy to learn.>Odor Sleuth could come in handy>Focus on a stat (Specify)>Something else[For the sake of keeping this from getting artificially long, I'll just name each Pokemon down the list for now.]>>30308718It'd take a lot of specialized training, but it's possible.Yes, Pokemon can learn more than four moves. Think more like the anime/manga than games
>>30308975>Bite should be easy to learn
>>30308569>>30308792Hey guys?You know horn leech is literally the last move on phantump's levelup list, right?We've wasted loads of time teaching him a high-level move that isn't even that powerful, neglecting his bread-and-butter moves like growth, curse, ingrain and oh yeah will-o-wisp.>>30308975>Bite should be easy to learn.gotta git stab
>>30308975>Try to learn Flamethrower. Robin's Houndour knows it.burn everything
>>30308975>BiteNice basic move
>>30308975>Bite should be easy to learn.
>>30308975I'd like flamethrower, since his next opportunity for a big battle (if we decide to use him there) is the dark/fighting gym, and if we do we want to focusfire the fighting type into oblivion with STABs.
>>30309036>Train Bite, Fiscal Responsibility nature
>>30308975>BiteHe needs something for when the enemy gets too close.
>>30308975>Bite should be easy to learn.Might as well get it out of the way, but Flamethrower is a great project for the future.>>30309036Eh, I agree that he's not an offensive Pokemon, but you always want an offensive move so you aren't useless after Taunt. Horn Leech is his best bet for that. I'd run Leech Seed, Substitute, Will-o-Wisp, Horn Leech. Curse and Ingrain will be nice as well with more than four move slots. What are you on about with Growth, though? How would that benefit him at all? He's not an attacker.
"Alright DevAHBLAGHHGG!" Devon tackles you and starts licking your face."Devon! Stop!" You giggle. If only you had that problem with Robin. "Devon! Down boy!" He finally calms down and sits, awaiting your commands. He's really affectionate outside of battles.You hold out a stick and order him to bite it. He chomps it, but it's clearly just a regular bite and not the actual move. "Devon, I need you to focus and use the move." He seems confused, and instead starts sniffing at your pockets. You reach in to find what he's after, and pull out your flute."Ah, this is what you want, right boy?" He wags his tail and barks. "I'll play for you if you can use Bite, how's that sound?"Devon barks, then starts attacking the stick. He bites down on it, and blows it away with an Ember. "Keep trying," you encourage. He repeats the same thing with a new stick, but he explodes that one with Dark Pulse. You play him a quick tune as a consolation for getting closer. Finally, after a few more sticks get destroyed, he seems to get the hang of it. It looks just like when Vlad showed you his Bite."Good boy Devon!" You play him a tune and he keeps demonstrating his Bite. After a few minutes, you decide to give him a rest. "Great work buddy, now take it easy for awhile. I'll play some more for you later."With Devon returned, you toss out Zappy Dan. He'll probably be in your team for the gym. He's already gotten a little improvement in his Defense and Special Attack, and has a powerful electric move.>Focus on stat training (specify)>Try to learn Mirror Shot>That Charge Beam move Eddie's Clefairy knew might be useful>Try to learn his Ability>Explosion could be a useful desperation move>Something elseJust a reminder, Explosion and other fainting moves are not considered cruel, and just a way to spend excessive energy. It's only cruel if you abuse the hell out of it or lead with it a lot. It does not hurt the user, just gently faints them from exhaustion
>>30309393>>Try to learn Mirror Shotlearn steel move. rock water typing is a thing

>>30309393>Focus on stat training (specify)Speed, he'll need to doge the water spouts. Toss stuff in the air for him to maneuver around.I think we've spoiled Devon
>>30309393>Focus on stat training (specify)special defense or special attack.if stat training doesn't win, my secondary choice is Explosion.>>30309420rock water isn't a threat, water ground would be, though that is what trunks is for.

You're probably thinking Ground/Water.Both are double-weak to Grass anyway so lol hornleech.
>>30309393>Explosion.If Zappy Dan must fall, he won't fall alone.
>>30309443Dans not a speed man, he is a tank.
>>30309393>Focus on stat training (specify)Special AttackOr we could be really annoying and go for volt switch...
>>30309475Well I don't really know how to train defense.
>>30309393>Try to learn Mirror ShotAlways nice to have coverage.
>>30309491Hit him with a stick
>>30309491well, Dan should be doing it by Not Giving a Fuck (AKA meditating) under a waterfall. Thematically appropriate and fits his upcoming opponents.
>>30309491Throw stuff at him? Or whatever we did last time.
>>30309491have him take hits from another mon...might actually be a good to a 2 for 1 training sessiondan works on defenseother mon tries to learn a new move etc
>>30309491>take a hit>go with the impact, thus weakening the damage on your bodyI remember a Machop in one episode of the Pokemon anime doing that. Don't forget to give Dan some polishing when we're done training him.
>>30309540That should be a special move we can train him.Not Giving A Fuck - Normal5PPRemoves all Status Effects from the user
>>30309393>Explosion could be a useful desperation moveZappy Kamikaze
>>30309561>Polish Zappy Dan>Point flash-light at him>Learns Flash
>>30309559Didn't we tell Vance we didn't want to pit our pokemon against each other?>>30309545Maybe this would be the best option, or this: >>30309561
>>30309586We should just teach him Protect. Then use "Not Give A Fuck" when we want him to use it.
>>30309617IDK, but if we did, well Vance isn't here right now.and it'd just be a spar.
>>30309393>That Charge Beam move Eddie's Clefairy knew might be usefulSpecial Attack boost is nice.
>>30309540That would probably train Special Defense, not Physical.>>30309617That was for forcing Destiny to learn to move on land by making her run from attacks, which would have been needlessly cruel.But I agree, using Dan as target practice is dumb.
>>30309711he could take the hits
>>30309711When you train to take hits, you have to take hits.You think its cruel when a boxer gets punched in training?
>>30308203>>30308414What happened on /qtg/? I never go there.
>>30309889He posted an image of a Pokegirl with empty eyes surrounded by ghosts./qtg/ interpreted that as constant unending ghost rape and neverending torment.
>>30309889Gobble announced the thread accompanied with this image.Then >>30309922 happened.
This might take some clever thinking. You look around for the right environment. Perfect! You see a small waterfall. That's exactly what you wanted."Alright Dan, I want you to float under that waterfall while we train." You figure you can hit two Pidgeys with one stone. Zappy Dan casually floats under the water, and takes his time to spin to face you. He struggles a little under the flowing water, but seems unconcerned.You spend some time trying to learn Mirror Shot. Dan doesn't seem to be learning that well. He manages to fire off small bursts of light, but nothing that seems focused enough to be more than a slightly annoyance. You think that maybe you're asking too much with him under the waterfall."Alright, come on out. Let's try something else for now. I want to see you rippling with energy! Let's see you explode!"Dan gives you a look that you could almost say was sarcastic. "Come on. Don't you want to spend the rest of the day relaxing? I read that Explosion makes you go to sleep after." You realize that if Vance heard you say that, it'd be facials with Robin all over again.That seems to be the right motivation for Dan. He gathers energy around him. From the shining light, you almost thing he's sing Mirror Shot or maybe even evolving for a second.Wait, should you be this close?BOOM! A massive shockwave throws you back. You land in the water and make a big splash. As you slowly get up and take a breath, you see Zappy Dan laying on the ground. You run over only to find him gently sleeping in his small, newly made crater. "Good job Dan. You covered a lot of ground today." You return him to his ball. You make a mental note to reward him later when he wakes up.(continued)
>>30309952It wasn't just one or two posts. They were enjoying it immensely.
>>30309952A guy asked what happened in QTG, so that anon explained it.Why are you asking so? This was never about why or how important it was.
>>30309963>>30309922I fail to see the problem. Other than /tg/ constant need to make everything about sex.
>>30309393>>That Charge Beam move Eddie's Clefairy knew might be usefulI like that it raise special attack, could be useful since it's an electric move for the next gym
>>30309922>>30309963And this is why I never go there.
>>30309988Zappy Dan slightly improved his Defense, Special Defence and Special Attack. He's learned Explosion and made a small amount of headway on Mirror Shot."Vlad! It's your turn!" The speedy Golbat does a loop before circling around you.>Confuse Ray would be more reliable than Supersonic>Poison Fang would make sense>Steel Wing could cover some weaknesses>Taunt should be easy>Try to learn his Ability>Train a stat (specify)>Something else

Holyshit, acrobatics OP for a quest that doesn't use items the same way as the game, though I suppose you could rule it that training for high-damage acrobatics would be another style, like psuedo-choiceband training would be.

Confusion has always been your ally. Even before you were a trainer, you always knew how to make the best of a confusing situation. Usually it was to get your hand in someone's pockets, but it still counts. Since you started your journey, confusion has only been better to you."Vlad! Let's work on Confuse Ray today!" He circles around you in delight. You have an idea! Trunks knows this move. He can demonstrate. You take out Trunks."Trunks, I want you to demonstrate Confuse Ray for Vlad. Don't be shy." Trunks snuggles up to you, then takes on a stance. You point him at a tree. "Aim there!"Trunks shoots a small, glowing ball of purple light. It sways through the air before connecting against the tree, giving off no noticeable effect."Now Vlad! You try!" Vlad gives it a few shots. Sometimes he fires off Swift or Leech Life by accident. He seems to have a little trouble at first, but he quickly looks like he got it. "Good job! Both of you."Vlad is on a roll. You decide to push him a bit. "Alright Vlad, let's focus on Poison Fang now." You have to search around for more suitable sticks. You doubt a rock would be good for this excercise. You start tossing sticks into the air, with Vlad catching them in his mouth and biting down. He transitions slowly from Bite to Poison Fang with each try. After awhile, you notice that some of this sticks end up with a purple, sickly colour after he's done with them. You think he has it! Probably! You'd want to test it out, but you're not sure what the best way to do that is.You can test out Confuse Ray though! "Vlad, come on down here." Vlad flies down and you catch him. "Vlad, I'm going to need you to use confuse Ray on me this one time." He looks confused himself.(continued)
>>30310717>>30310768Rumors of his demise were greatly exaggerated.
>>30310798What's the worst that could happen
>>30310798"Don't worry, Vlad, I bought special Persim Berry jam, it cures confusion." You open the jar and let him see it. "I'll have the jar open and ready. You just need to use it on me once, then I'll take some jam and I'll be fine."You're not 100% sure about the plan, but he seems to apprecaite your willingness to get down and dirty, so you press on. "Alright? Ready?" He flies up into the air and does another loop, you ready the jar."Confuse Ray!"Vlad fires a small ball of purple light, then the world gets...weird. The colors are all wrong. You're spinning around in circles, even though you know you're standing still. Come on, concentrate! You had a plan, right? The jam! Stay focused! You have it in your left hand. No wait, the right hand. Whatever hand it is, you put it to your face. Ow! You must have come in to fast. You try that again, slowly. There's something in your mouth, it's a little bitter, and goopy.The world comes into focus. Vlad is flying overhead in truimph. You can clearly see it's only been a few seconds, but it felt like it could have easily been hours. Vlad's Confuse Ray is potent!"Good work Vlad! I think that'll work really well." Vlad screeches in happiness before returning."Destiny! I choose you!">Focus Energy should be easy>Try to learn Ice Beam>Scald could be really useful>Train a stat (Specify)>Something else

>>30310941Horseas have terrible base Physical Attack. Outrage is only useful because of its raw power and Dragon typing, physical attacks won't be much good to us until we can evolve her to Kingdra.
>>30311019Can't we teach her dragon dance?
>>30311019I know her PhysAttack is weak now, but I'd rather work on powering up the attack we would use if we took her into the gym battle, since scald is likely to be resisted and is an unreliable-at-best status inducer.(but I got sorely outvoted so it's not like I'm trying to make a fuss or anything)
>>30311085Its mostly a case of her never being as good at physical attacks as our other options so it would be a bit of a waste.
>>30311247Kingdra's physical and special attack are equal, though I admit when, if ever, she would become a Kingdra is questionable.
You sit on a log and pick up Destiny. You pet her while you're still getting your bearings a little. She cuddles in close since you're still all wet from being knocked in the water."Let's learn Scald today." Destiny jumps off your lap and prepares for training. "Eager, are we?" She lets out a few bubbles as she squeels in a happy affirmative. "This move will be a lot like Water Gun. The biggest difference is that the water needs to be hot. Really, really hot."Destiny doesn't seem to get the concept at first. It takes a lot of tries. You have her hitting rock after rock with it, but it just seems like she's doing Water Gun over and over."Destiny, come here." She leaps up back next to you. You bring your hands in to your mouth, and slowly breath hot air on them, then touch Destiny with them. "See what I'm doing? It's more like that. Let the heat out slowly, then blast away." You have no idea if that really applies to her, but you've had a great run with these things so far.You get her to practice it on some more rocks. She's slower, calmer now, and the effect shows. You put your hand on the rock she was working on and it's hot!"Yes! Good work! You did it!" Destiny looks a little tired from all the effort. "Rest up for now. I'm really proud of you."You return her to her ball, then take out Raistlin. He got a lot of experience against a horde of Magikarp recently, and he's been really quick and exact on your training.>Calm Mind fits well>Energy Ball would be an unexpected surprise>Psyshock could cover a weakness>Train a stat (Specify)>Something else

>>30311364>>Energy Ball would be an unexpected surpriseSounds good to me.
>>30311364>Energy Ball would be an unexpected surpriseLets do this.
>>30311364can we also try giving him commands without speaking? should help if we get in a bind like back in the Karaoke bar, if we can use Raistlin without the opponent knowing what we are doing, we would have a surprise advantage...I don't expect us to nail it down today, but if we work on it bit by bit...
Energy Ball would really help you out."Raistlin, we're going to get you in touch with nature today. Let's learn Energy Ball." He cocks his head a little in reaction. That's a good sign."This isn't something a lot of people will expect from you," you explain. You grab some grass and wad it into a ball. "I want you to just levitate this grass for now, and really get to feel it."Raistlin pushes the grass ball around with his mind. You put your hand on his back. "Good job, now lets work that Energy Ball. Try to gather some grass energy." You have no idea what you're saying. Since he might be able to read your mind though, you do your best to convince yourself that you do. Slowly and steadily, Raistlin is able to gather and shoot small, ineffective balls of green energy. You think about how proud you are of him. He's a fast learner too, like Trunks. He doesn't outwardly react to much, but you're glad you got him. You wonder what he'll be like when he evolves. He's probably getting closer.The small Abra levitates a little and fires off a much stronger ball of energy. Then another. It impacts a nearby rock, blowing it to bits."Wow! You did it!" You run up and hug him. "You're amazing!" You smother him. You do your best to think the words as hard as you can when you say them. He might communicate more that way. "Take a break, you've earned it." You return him to his ball, and walk back to the Pokemon center. There's still a little time left, and you have one more Pokemon that needs your attention.You call him Professor Fir. He's happy to exchange Leviathan for another Pokemon for awhile. He offers to heal Zappy Dan, since he's out from learning Explosion anyway. You make the exchange, then head out somewhere secluded.You prepare to through out Leviathan, your Gyarados.>On second thought, maybe this isn't a good idea right now>Try to learn her ability>Just focus on bonding for now>Learn what moves she already knows>Train a stat (specify)>Something else

You can't be a Pokemon trainer and be afraid of your own Pokemon. You need to be able to trust each other. You toss out her Pokeball.In a massive flash of light, your Gyarados appears. It looks down at you expectently. There's no outward hostility, but no obedience or sign of respect either."Hi girl," you muster your bravery. It's a lot different when you're face to face with her. "I'm Kat. We'll be partners from now on." You remember to maintain eye contact. Leviathan's eyes follow yours, which you take as a good sign. She still doesn't react. You scratch behind her ears a little, but to do so means you have to lean in close, almost against her face. You can feel her breath on your chest. You lean in a little closer, and play around until you find the right spot.She lets out a happy sound. Your fingers can always make a girl happy. She breaks eye contact and you keep scratching her. "You like that?" She leans into your hands some more. "We're going to be good friends." You stop scratching her and she resumes looking at you. A lot of tension has been taken out of it though. She looks like she enjoyed that, but there's something else about her face that's bothering you. It's like she just expected you to do that for her and she still feels like she's in charge.>Give her a simple command, assert your dominance>Ask her to demonstrate her moves>That's good for now, return>Play the flute, maybe she'll like that>Something else

"Leviathan, why don't you show me some of your moves?" She looks at you. You almost sense pride and cockiness from her expression.She looks at a nearby tree and roars. The sound is intense, but the visual is where the real action is. A shockwave of rage leaves her mouth and hits the small tree, splitting it in half. You saw that move before from the ship. It's Dragon Rage! As the top half starts tipping over, she moves in and crushes it with a Bite. She leaps high into the air, then comes crashing down on the stump with Bounce. Splinters fly everywhere, forcing you to cover your face for a moment.When you take your arms down, she's looking at you, waiting for a reaction. It's hard to say if she's demanding praise from you, her minion, looking for genuine feedback, asserting her own dominance through a show of power, or something else. Pokemon can be harder to read than people sometimes.>You're incredibly impressed>Fake a yawn>Congratulate her, tell her you'll make a good team>What a terrifying display! Look scared>Something else

>>30312638Before we decide that, we should make sure she won't go a little crazy and disobey us in battle.
>>30312599"Eh, not bad I suppose. Real proof will be in live opponents."
>>30312599>>Congratulate her, tell her you'll make a good team>>30312662Have to admit she seems pretty chill.
>>30312662seemed to follow orders well enough.we could fight a random wild poke for a trial battleor just send her out 1st in the gym battle
>>30312599>Smirk>>Congratulate her, tell her you'll make a good team>>30312638I'm not so sure. Maybe a later gym, but she's a little fresh right now.
>>30312692I think that would be a good idea. She is chill, but she is also the most powerful person and arguably the one with the greatest potential for anger.
>>30312638I'd rather our 3 man team be Dan, Trunks, and Raistlin.Why teach him Energy Ball if not for this fight?
>>30312599>Congratulate her, tell her you'll make a good team
>>30312746He may not have it down perfectly, we should practice it further.
>>30312746Yeah, that does seem like a reasonable matchup.Why take a water type to a water gym?
>>30312746Dan and Trunks already got sp atack down, Raistlin doesn't get STAB, Leviathan gets 1/2 resistance against water and dat physical attack
>>30312795Gobble said that STAB isn't really a thing.I don't think we're sticking particularly hard to the game mechanics.
>>30312794Because they resist the local STAB, and Leviathan gets to use a decent STAB in Bounce or typeless damage in Dragon Rage, or Destiny can unleash destruction with Outrage.
>leader orders his to poke to submerge and hide under the water>Leviathan used Bounce!>pool emptied>Dragon rage
>>30312794And it's possibly the only time Destiny will get to be in the water...
Her gaze bores into you. She's waiting."Well done!" You keep your voice from being overly enthusiastic, but make sure she can hear the genuine praise. "Not bad at all. I think we'll be a good team. We'll have to really see how you do against live opponents." You shoot her a smirk and lean on her tail. She looks a surprised you're not in total fear and awe of her power. You may have slightly wounded her pride just a bit. That's probably a good thing though, she has plenty to spare.You're still not sure how she'll be in an actual battle, but she seems nice enough to relax with for now.It's getting late and you're getting hungry. You should probably meet up with Robin and Vance soon.>Head back to town>Look for a wild Pokemon (d100)>Look for a quick match with a trainer>Something else

You probably have time to find a wild Pokemon somewhere out here. You return Leviathan for now and start looking around. You've run into a lot of interesting Pokemon recently. You can't wait to see what you find next.There's a distance buzzing sound coming from somewhere passed the clearing. You carefully climb over the various stumps and rocks until you find the source. It's a yellow flying insect Pokemon, with two stingers for hands. You know this one, Beedrill, but just for the sake of it, you take out your Pokedex."Kneedrill, the Spelling B Pokemon. Beedrill are genetically engineered by the antidote industry in a conspiracy to sell more product. They enjoy giving trainers hugs."You've heard crazier ideas. You were hoping for another Ice or Fire type though. Just as your reflecting on the best way to deal with it, it spots you. Uh oh, it does not look friendly. It flies right at you.You grab a Pokeball.>Devon (Houndour)>Vlad (Golbat)>Destiny (Horsea)>Trunks (Phantump)>Raistlin (Abra)>Leviathan (Gyarados)>Screw it, run!>Something else

This seems like as good a chance to test Leviathan in battle as any. You toss up her Pokeball. "Leviathan, I choose you!"The massive blue monster of a Pokemon appears before you. She watches with casual interest as the Beedrill comes whizzing.You barely dodge it. It flies by your face, then turns around for another pass. Leviathan is not taking the initiative. Or even doing much at all. Is that a good sign, or bad?>Leviathan, Bounce!>Use Bite!>Dragon Rage, go!>Something else>Swap for another Pokemon (Specify)
>>30313646>BiteLeviathan, Crush that puny bug
>>30313646>>Dragon Rage, go!the moment of truth!
>>30313646>Use Bite!Bounce is overkill and likely to wound us with shrapnel. Dragon rage doesn't do that much, though it may still be respectable at this point.
>>30313646"Leviathan, eat the bee!"
>>30313646Bounce, maybe Dragon Rage. Last thing we want is for our pissy sea serpent to get stung on the inside of her mouth.
>>30313646>>Use Bite!Rip and Tear
>>30313646>Use Bite!"...You can hit it, can't you?"
>>30313760this reverse psycology may be the way to train leviathan
>>30313646>>Use Bite!...potentially important thought.Beedrills are tiny and highly agileGyarados are huge and burdened with a (fairly) large turning circle....can Leviathan really coordinate to hit a target like this?
>>30313781She will have to learn considering the size of most of the things we will have to fight.
>>30313760That is a good idea. Nothing more astounding to a proud sea serpent than doubt.
>>30313780jealous might work too if reverse psychology doesn'tswitch out to devon, burniate the beedrill, lavish him with praise watch her get jealous, which will make either want to follow orders ....or exacerbate the problem.worth stating imo, reverse psychology didn't work on ursaring for vance (she might be smarter than the average bear though)
"Leviathan! Use Bite!"The Beedrill comes flying in fast. Leviathan faces it, and waits. "Good thinking. Let it get close."Beedrill closes the distance, passed Leviathan and directly at you. You dodge just in time."Leviathan! Use Bite! Hurry!" Beedrill comes chasing after you again. Instead of a quick pass, it slows down so it can follow. It chases you around the gigantic Gyarados, rotating which stinger to strike at you with.You trip over a rock. You turn around quickly to see the Beedrill just about to strike. Oh no, not poison again.You pick up the same rock you tripped over with one hand and start reaching for a Pokeball with the other. With surprising speed, the stinger comes in.It stops right before your face. The solid buzzing sound is quickly drowned out as Leviathan as the Beedrills other stinger locked in her mouth. Her mouth is the familiar black that comes with using Bite. With a quick effortless flick of her head, she tosses the Beedrill into a tree. It's buzz changes frequency when it connects, then once again when it ricochets into another tree outside of view.Leviathan looks down at you on the ground.>Thanks her for helping you>Chastise her for not obeying at first>Just return her. Deal with it later>Something else

>>30314180>pokemon does not listen to a command once>give up on it foreveri'm glad ash did not have this mentality with his Charmeleon
"You hard of hearing or something? I'd expect more from such a 'fierce' looking Pokemon." She's surprised you're willing to yell at her, but she doesn't look offended. Yet. You're not some wussy trainer afraid someone or something bigger than yourself. You'd never have lasted in your life if you were. "I guess your all bark no bite." She breaks eye contact and lets out a snort of contempt, but it's not threatening. She probably didn't expect you to get in her face. You return her.It's almost time to meet up with Vance and Robin. You return her and head back to the Pokemon center. For the second time, you enter the doors covered in mud.Zappy Dan should be healed by now. Before You'll need to decide which Pokemon to leave with Professor Fir when you head out.>Devon>Zappy Dan>Vlad>Destiny>Trunks>Raistlin>Leviathan

>>30314485she doesn't know any grass or electric moves.and we don't have to challenge the gym tomorrow, we can still work on Leviathan's discipline issues. we ain't on a timer guys
>>30314512We still might need more, depending upon the format of the gym
>>30314552Yeah, but Leviathan is a good emergency fallback of brute force.We really should get her into a pokemon battle with another trainer though. Maybe Eddie, if we run into him again.
>>30314586Not a fan of trying to rely upon an unfaithful pokemon. Destiny is mechanically inferior to gyrados, but she is reliable and still knows some good moves.
>>30314688That's why I say put Leviathan through some more fighting. If she comes off as consistantly unreliable, swap her our before the fight.
>>30314332>DevonDo what's good for the team, not good for only one pokemon. That's favoritism, our team deserves better than that.
"Professor, do you mind looking after Destiny for now? She knew Outrage when I caught her."Fir gives you a thumbs up. "Mind? Not at all! Your Magnemi- Err, Zappy Dan, is ready to come back." On cue, Dan floats up to the monitor. He spins his magnets nonchallently and wanders off screen. "He's not phased by much. He slept right in the middle of all this construction. I ran some tests just to make sure he was alright. He's fine, just very relaxed." Fir comments.You prepare Destiny to make sure she understands this is only temporary. She bubbles in the affirmative. You make the exchange and say goodbye to the Professor.Just as you walk outside of the Pokemon center, you catch Robin and Vance.You wave them down. "Hey guys! How was work?"Vance grins. "Profitable. There was a convention for successful single mothers in town. They tip like crazy!" You scan Vance's face to see if he has an inkling as to why. He just grins boyishly."It was great!" Robin says. "Not even half the work I had to do at the gym!" She looks down at her feet. "I got big tips too, until I slapped a customer."You probably didn't hear that right. "You, Robin, slapped a customer?"She blushes a little, but looks a little proud. "Yeah! He grabbed my..." Robin leans in close, "he grabbed my butt." You try not to laugh as she utters such a word. "I didn't even think about it. I turned around and slapped him. I got fired on the spot!"You can see the same rebellious look on her face she gets when she wants to impress you. You must be rubbing off on her.>Tease her>Congratulate her on standing up for herself>That's crap!

"I had no idea you could get so rough!" You pat her on the shoulder. You want to go back there and rip them a new one, but you don't want to rob her of this. She could use a little toughening up. "Our little Robin got all violent and confrontational on someone. I'm so proud!" You tease her a bit too. She blushes at the praise. Vance looks relieved you're not planning on burning the place down.Not today. You're mad, but you're happy to see Robin isn't too much of a victim when backed into a corner without you there. "You're an official bad girl now." Her rebellious smile grows just a little.You, Robin, and Vance start heading back to the hotel. With Vance taking the lead, you walk right up behind Robin. You don't want to surprise her too badly and get a red mark on your own face."So," You whisper into her ear as you wak behind her, your hands on her lower back. "Is that the standing motto now? If I have a handful, do you promise to get rough with me too?" Your hands slide down and give her butt a good squeeze. Firm.Robin blushes and runs up forward a bit. She blushes, but doesn't look offended. She runs passed Vance. He turns around to ask what's going on, but you cut him off."So what's the plan? Are we just sleeping back at the hotel right now, or heading right for the gym?"Vance forgets his original topic. "Well, I'm a little tired, but we could see if the gym is still open.Robin nods. "I want to challenge it tomorrow morning, but I'll come cheer you on if you want to go now.">Go right there. You can't wait>Tomorrow morning is fine, head to the hotel>Tomorrow is fine, but you want to do something before going to the hotel (write-in)>Something else
>>30315328>Tomorrow morning is fine, head to the hotelI'm tired my feet hurt my pokemon are tired are we there yet.
>>30315328Tomorrow is fine. Reward your hard-working friends with a good meal at a good restaraunt!
>>30315328>Tomorrow morning is fine, head to the hotel
>>30315328>>Tomorrow morning is fine, head to the hotel
>>30315328>>Tomorrow is fine, but you want to do something before going to the hotel (write-in)go work on Levia's discipline problemmaybe Robin or Vance can offer a new idea with their perspectives
>>30315328Tomorrow is fine, teasing Robin more tonight would be fun
>>30315328> Tomorrow is fine, but let's do thingLet's go get in a pokemon battle. We need to get trunks blooded.
>>30315328>Tomorrow morning is fine, head to the hotelguys can we have a moment to realise that nobody in this thread has had a serious arguement yet...
>>30315448ur waifu a sh- oh wait, wrong quest..
>>30315364Sounds goodas long as we split it three-wayI mean, paying for all of it ourselves would be a bit patronizing now that they have a bit of cash, right?
So are we getting 2 rooms or sticking to 1?2 rooms would help if we wanted to tease Robin more
>>30315328I guess we are just like Ash now.>Tomorrow is fine, but you want to do something before going to the hotel (write-in)>>30315393I agree with anon, we should train Levia some more.
>>30315482I don't know, we don't want to make them spend a chunk of the money they just earned since they'll need that for traveling expenses.I'd consider it an investment in our continued friendship.
>>30315328>Tomorrow is fine, head to the hotel
>>30315492I want two.
>>303154921 is alright. Let's not abuse O'Teller's generosity.
>>30315492Technically, we could probably have three for nothing.Then we could sneak into Robin's bed at night, strip her bare, and hold hands till morning.
>>30315482>>30315508Every. Fucking. Time.
>>30315583Absolutely disgusting.Next you'll tell me we might snuggle affectionately.
>>30315631Woah, son. I ain't no deviant.
>>30315583L-Lewd... verry much so...
>>30315492Two rooms would be a bit much on Robin, and I don't think we should be so loose with our money.
>>30315663rooms are free at this place
>>30315678Oh yeah.Then it's just Robin's embarassement to worry over.
>>30315704so lets do itTwo rooms please, Gobble
>>30315781But we should all chill in the hot tub together, like friends.
>>30315799of course we will, do you think we're savages?afterwards, we go to the separate rooms
>>30315815And Vance will have his ear to the wall all night.
>>30315872That was the joke.
>>30315872>>Vance>>sex drive>>kekI like to imagine he's hiding his powerlevel, or at the very least has his priorities right
>>30315952>HidingProtip: He lost a leg as a child.
>>30315952I like partially oblivious dunderhead.
>>30315952"What's all the noise about? Are they wrestling? maybe I could learn a new move!!"
"Tomorrow makes sense." You continue on to the hotel. You want to get your second badge, but today was a long day. You and your friends could use some rest and relaxation. Your stomach growls. And dinner.Mr. O'Telier greets you. "There are you! Come come!" He ushers you into the hotel, but down a different room. "I've upgrade your suite.""Wow, that's really generous of you," Vance comments as the three of you are practically pushed down the hall."Not at all, especially not for you," he gestures to Robin. "First you solve my pest problem, the you slap the owner of of the pest control company that didn't do their job!" Robin looks extremely embarrassed that word got around so quickly. Mr. O'Telier opens the door to the room. It's massive and luxurious, with three separate bedrooms within the suite, and a hot tub in the middle. "Dinner is on the house. I insist!" There's a table in the center of the room with fancy dishes waiting and even some wine bottles.Robin begins to open her mouth. She's probably going to say something about the wine."Thank you so much!" You cut her off. Vance gives you a sideways glance, but it's not disapproving. "This is amazing.""Nonsense! I'm already getting plenty of calls for bookings. on that note, I have to run. Please don't hesitate to call room service for anything." He leaves the room.The three of you put down your things and sit down to dinner. There's way too much for three people, but the three of you are starving and everyone looks eager for that challenge.>Tell Robin and Vance about Leviathan, get advice>Pick Robin's brain about the upcoming gym>Encourage Vance to challenge this gym too>Make sure they have some wine, then ask some personal questions (Write-ins encouraged)>Something else
>>30315987>Vance used Scissor Kick!Vance, that's not... Vance, what are you...Vance...Stahp.

>>30316000Hate to do this to you, Gobble, but I am going to have to ask for all of them.

>>30316000>Tell Robin and Vance about Leviathan, get advice>Pick Robin's brain about the upcoming gym>Make sure they have some wine, then ask some personal questions ("Tell us about your sister, Vance.")

>>30316087>Showing interest in VanceIt's like you don't know how things go around here.
>>30316117No, I back asking him about his sister.After asking about the gym and Leviathan
>>30316000>Pick Robin's brain about the upcoming gym
>>30316117I just couldn't think of any pointed questions to ask a drunk Robin. We've already covered that ground. We don't know much about her mother, I guess.
>>30316147>>30316162I was being a smartass. Vance needs development and screentime.
>>30316000>>30316033I like these two, Gobble.
>>30316087Sure let's ask about Vance's sister.
We're on page 8.
>>30316043hahahaHAHAHAHAHow the hell did I not get that one
You tell Robin and Vance about Leviathan. Robin winces at every detail. Her confidence is shaken a bit at hearing your Gyarados wasn't entirely obedient. Vance is very sympathetic though. "It sounds a lot better than how things started with me and Ursaring. Levi probably she needs time. You're a natural at this stuff, don't worry about it so much."While that's not specifically helpful, it is nice to hear. "I was thinking of using her at the gym," you say before stuffing another bite in your mouth."I wouldn't do that," says Robin. Her tone isn't judgemental, but concerned. "Brook may be a playboy, and act like an airhead surfer sometimes, but he knows how to battle, and how to deal with brute force. He's an expert in water Pokemon too." You know Robin isn't the type to be so assertive without good reason, but she also might just be worried about an uncontrollable Gyarados. She does have a phobia.You don't argue with her. "What would you do, if you were me?" Robin plays with her food, then downs her entire glass of wine. "I don't know. I mean, I'm not sure what I'll do. He has a few Pokemon he might use for novice challengers, Wooper, Buizel, Wartortle and either Slowpoke or Slowking. It's usually three on three." Novice challengers. Getting one badge suddenly doesn't feel like such an accomplishment.(continued)
>>30316666You shift the focus. "Vance, maybe you should challenge the gym too."He adjusts his chair. "I don't know. Sato was one thing, but I don't want to abuse the system. Next thing you know I'd end up fighting my sister."Just the subject you wanted to land on. "What do you mean?"Vance sighs. "Everyone always wants to hear about her." Oh boy, touchy subject. "What's to say? She's the Clairborough gym leader. A genius, a prodigy, accomplished." He downs his glass. "Everything I'm not." He pours another glass, then fills up yours and Robin's. He gives you a smile. "Sorry. It's a sibling rivalry thing.">Press Vance on more details>Wait, go back to what Robin was saying about the water gym>Change the subject to something fun. We should be relaxing>Something else
>>30316729>>Something elseSo you're not doing this for yourself, but for your sister
>>30316729>Press Vance on more detailsAaaaaand I need to go to bed.I future vote for hot tub shenanigans
>>30316729>Change the subject to something fun. We should be relaxingLooks like we found the source of those confidence issues.
>>30316729>Press Vance on more details'Never had a sibling myself. Were you ALWAYS fighting?'
>>30316729>>Press Vance on more details"Do you even WANT to be any of those things?"
>>30316729>Something elseGive him some encouraging words about how he's good enough, bla bla bla, >Press Vance on more details
>>30316729>Something elseReassure him, we like him for him, and didn't even know his sister was a gym leader. Just curious, since we're discussing gym leaders.
>>30316729I didn't even know who she is, so you're already winning according to me!
>>30316766>>30316753These. If finger had finished, let's move to the hot tub.
>>30316729"I wouldn't say that. Besides, being accomplished isn't everything."
>>30316753This. I used to do things because someone said I couldn't, and then I thought "why am I trying to prove them wrong, why do I care what they think"The first step to Happiness is Selfishness.
>>30316729I dunno Vance, I'd say being able to wrestle an Ursurang and learn fighting styles from pokemon makes you a protegee, and you pick up stuff pretty damn fast. Accomplished? maybe not, but I think you can be if you want. But don't do things like that for someone else, do what you want for you
>>30316729"Bet you could kick her ass one-on-one if the pokemon weren't involved. She's good with Pokemon, you're a mountain made of muscle. Everyone's got their talents."
QM is inserting his magical realm. Vance's sister is a musclegirl
>>30317133And there was much rejoicing.
>>30317133Shhhh...Shhhhhhhhhhhhh...Just enjoy climbing Mount Vance's Sister. Enjoy the peaks and valleys, and the deep veins of pure strongth.
>>30317133>Vance's sister is a musclegirlSounds tight
>>30317133What a coincidence!
>>30317164I wonder if Robin would get Jealous if we flirted with Vance's sister....Poor Vance though
Between him and Robin, you're starting to feel like you have the least issues. Families must really screw a person up."You never mentioned she was the Psychic gym leader," Robin tentatively probes. Not the type you expected."Vance continues eating. "You didn't ask." He tries to keep his voice from being snippy. She's just asking and he knows it. You stop eating and give him your full attention. "Come on Vance, you're too hard on yourself. You're a pretty amazing guy. You're built like a truck, girls can't keep their hands off of you," you put your hand on his arm before you realize what you're doing, "you can fight most Pokemon, you know about medicine," you nod towards your arm where you were stung before, "You're a solid guy Vance." He smiles up at you. He's a bit like you in that he has to fight to stay vulnerable, instead of fighting to mask his feelings."Thanks," it's all he manages to say. You can see his eyes well up just the tiniest bit, and he moves to hid it before you or Robin can see. It's too late for you, but Robin has notice yet.You think fast. "Plus, you're a good flotation device!" With that, you shove him back in his chair towards the hot tub. He laughs as he crawls out enough to pull you in. You grab Robin and the three of up tumble in.Robin spurts water of out her mouth. "Our clothes are soaked!" She's still laughing.>Whatever, just enjoy the tub in your clothes>Go get changed, then come back in>Probably a good time to call it a night before the alcohol and hot tub take full effect>Something else[last vote for the night]
>>30317133Oh please let her be tanned as well. I love me some tanned athletic girls.
>>30317172>>30317164>>30317133uh, hate to break it to you guys, but if she was muscle-route, then she would probably be one of the fighting-type leader.
>>30317194>but Robin hasn't notice yet.I really have to give these a once over before posting. I'm terrible for that.
>>30317194>Probably a good time to call it a night before the alcohol and hot tub take full effect

>>30317194>>Whatever, just enjoy the tub in your clothesyou're already wet anyway.
>>30317194Eh. Just strip naked. You'll see one-another in la buff sooner or later.
>>30317194>Whatever, just enjoy the tub in your clothes"It's already too late, so who cares!"
>>30317194>Probably a good time to call it a night before the alcohol and hot tub take full effect>psychicfoo
>>30317228I've seen worse.
>>30317194>>Go get changed, then come back in
>>30317210uh, that got mangled, was going to say one of the braundalin leaders, but I forgot how to spell it, so switched and accidentally implied there are multiple fighting type leaders, the other is dark type.
>>30317194>Whatever, just enjoy the tub in your clothesLet's try not to get super wasted, we have a big day tomorrow.
>>30317194>Whatever, just enjoy the tub in your clothesand with that im off for the night aswell thanks as allways gobble
>>30317333Thank you! Sleep tight! Next quest will probably be Wednesday unless stated otherwise
>>30317375Thanks for running!
>>30317375Gobble, god damn it, when the fuck do we get to meet with a broker!? I joined in for fiscal responsibility!
>>30317194>Whatever, just enjoy the tub in your clothesLets make bad drunken decisions

Votes counted, thread archived! I hope you all have a great night. As posted before, we're looking at Wednesday unless something comes up with work. I'll post in qtg and twitter if anything changes.Next time on Pokemon Quest: Hot Water! Aquapolis Gym Battle Showdown!
Goddamn, why does Serena always look like she's about to rape a bitch?Or are these just the choicest of screenshots?
So it's agreed? We're going to use the wet clothes as an excuse to get everyone naked. That logic makes sense when you're drunk.We can at least come up with a flimsy reason to get naked with Robin in bed, right?
>>30317734Both. She really wants the D from Ash
>>30317869Can we come up with a flimsy excuse to start an investment portfolio then?
>>30318028>Asking permissionBitch, we do what we want! It's our money!
>>30318028I'd prefer not, but it's more acceptable
>>30318133>Fiscal responsibility>More important than drunken hazy night of wet sexy shenanigansI don't even know who you are any more, Anon
>>30318133Approval for three-way investment confirmed!We're going to get so lewd with our money.
