>>30940912You could say i have an invested interest in this quest.
love this story. What wonderful tales will Mr. Gobble entertain us with today? I think I can see the /u/boats on my sonar...
>>30941021Last thread really didn't leave anything to the imagination.
Rolled 12>>30941007Is it yielding dividends?
You slip your way out of bed, careful not to wake Robin up. Silently, you get dressed and follow the scent of coffee to the kitchen where you find Jeanine nursing a cup. In a groggy haze, you pour your own cup and take a seat next to her.There's a notable absence in the house. "Where's Vance and his parents?""They left a note. They went to go do a bunch of paperwork stuff. Vance went with them with them. They should be back soon." Jeanine looks how you feel; tired and a little disappointed. "Didn't get much sleep?" She blows on her cup."Nope." You give it a taste. Too bitter, even for you. You stir in a little sugar. "Not for the reasons you think either. I was putting on something sexy for Robin to take off, but when I finished changing, she fell asleep." You sigh. You know yesterday was a long day, but it's still a blow to the ego. "I couldn't sleep though. My engines were all revving to go and I had to spend the night spooning her, smelling her hair, wrapping my arms around her..." You test your coffee again. Trying to tease Robin last night backfired hard and you're feeling frustrated. "I guess it's karma or something for all the times I teased her."Jeanine gives a short laugh. It's not a mean or cruel laugh, but one that has a hint of self-awareness to it.>She didn't come back last night. Ask what happened with Vance>Ask advice about Robin>Since both of you are alone right now, this is a good chance to talk about... (write-in)>Something else
>>30941146>She didn't come back last night. Ask what happened with VanceThey didn't the do either.
Leave town.Seriously. Last thread when taking Delmer's shit you referred to each other by first name, you didn't cover your faces, you left your prints everywhere.Even if the Police are happy Team Imperium was dealt a blow, they don't know if it's a vigilante group or another gang trying to muscle in.Even the Boss might think it's another gang trying to muscle in.You don't know that Delmer was arrested either. You left him in knocked out in some goo and didn't wait for the Police to turn up. Adding to that, there's nothing stopping him from giving up your details if he's arrested.

>>30941198Gym battle first, man.We've got the gym leader's family in our pockets, fairly literally, and the coppers are understaffed as well.
>>30941285>Gym battle first, man.There's more than 8 Gyms in the Region

>>30941435Whoops.Still, we've been taking the gyms at such a slow pace, we need to pick that shit up.
"Did you do any better than me? Come on, story time Jeanine. How was your night with Vance?" You just have to know. Just because you're with Robin doesn't mean you haven't wondered.Jeanine sips her coffee. "I came into his room, told him you and Robin were going at it, which at the time I assumed was true." She gives you a sympathetic look. "Vance invites me into his bed, then he takes the floor." You cringe. "I don't give up that easily though. I got him back on the bed and started a tickle fight. The kind where I wrap my legs around him to pin him down."You lean in closer to listen. "Now we're getting somewhere." Machop comes up to the table to sit with the two of you. Vance must have left him here. He's playing at being a person.(continued)
>>30941598>He's playing at being a personAt least he doesn't take his meals on the floor.
>>30941598"So there we are, bodies pressed against each other, trying to keep our voices down. I'm pretty much dry humping him at this point. Then he tickled my right under my ribs and I laughed so hard I snorted." She makes a snorting noise. It startles Machop, who was investigating her cup of coffee. "Well, he said how much that reminded him of when we were kids, and we started talking about all the things we were nostalgic for. It changed the mood and I just couldn't change it back after that." It's her turn to sigh now. "We were up late talking. When we were kids, we'd pretend I was a Pokemon trainer and he was a knight. I can't believe he remembered that."You're about to ask why she isn't a trainer now when you remember how Jeanine told you about losing her first Pokemon to a disease. You couldn't imagine suddenly losing Devon.Jeanine stares off into space. "I think Vance still sees me as the little girl he used to play with." You look up a the tall, statuesque, busty yet impossibly perky, blonde goddess of female beauty. It's hard to imagine anyone thinking of her as a little girl. "Maybe I should just leave it at that." She puts on a smile and clinks her cup to yours. "To neither of us getting laid last night!" She finishes her cup.>Ask Jeanine if she'd ever want another Pokemon>Offer advice (write-in)>You and your Pokemon are hitting the fitness center, don't wait up>Call Professor Fir about the three starter Pokemon now instead of later>There are some books on the shelves around the house.

>>30941768love is a fickle thing
"There's no reason you can't be both, just tell him how you feel, it worked for me."Jeanine stares into her empty cup. "Normally guys just throw themselves at me. I wouldn't know how." You suppress the urge to make a sarcastically sympathetic remark. You don't know how far you can tease her yet as a friend. You decide to be positive instead. "Uh-uh. No way. We're not surrendering! C'mon, girl, we're going shopping!" Jeanine perks up. "First though, I need to make a call. Is there a phone I can use?" You think about the three Pokemon you rescued from Team Imperium.Jeanine gestures to the videophone on the wall.You're just about to dial Professor Fir when you have the urge to ask her something. "Would you ever want another Pokemon?"Jeanine snaps out of her funk and looks at you. "I don't know..." She's normally not someone who stutters or hesitates with her words, but you can see her struggle a little here. "Maybe. I don't think I'd want to be a trainer collecting badges or anything, but yes. One day, if the circumstances are right."You punch in Professor Fir's number."Well hello there." He greats you with a smile. He's always in a good mood. "You're Pokemon are doing well. I have to say that Raistlin is quite the specimen. Trunks has been very eager to help out in the lab too. I couldn't ask for a better assistant."You explain what happened, skimming over the incriminating parts."I see. I'm glad that they've been recovered. Please send them over. I'd like to examine them personally right away.">Ask if you can keep them>Ask if you can keep one, since you were supposed to get one anyway (will trigger a quote-only vote)>Just ask what will happen to them now>Something else
>>30942133>Ask what will happen to them now.
>>30942133>Just ask what will happen to them now
>>30942133>Something else"I'll send them over right now. When you're done with them, can my friend, Jeanine, have one?"
>>30942133>Just ask what will happen to them nowRather, "Professor, what do you plan to do with them?"
>>30942133>Ask if you can keep one, since you were supposed to get one anyway (will trigger a quote-only vote)>Just ask what will happen to them now
"Well, that really depends on what the examination turns up. They've been gone quite awhile. Assuming there's nothing physically wrong, they'll go to new trainers. I worry that they may not be well adjusted though. They may end up needing more mature trainers to help them."You look over to Jeanine. She's already had a Pokemon before, and she's definitely more mature than someone like Junior. "I'll send them over right now. When you're done with them, can my friend, Jeanine, have one?" You keep your voice down. You don't want to make a big thing about it quite yet."I can't promise anything. Like I said, it depends on the examinations. If you can vouch for her though, and nothing unexpected turns up, then yes, that sounds ideal." He smiles at you. "I'm glad you were the first young trainer I got to send off on their journey. I can tell you care about Pokemon very much. Next time you're in Novum, I want to thank you personally for finding them."Praise from adults is still a foreign concept from you, even if Fir isn't really that much older. "T-thanks." You send the Pokemon over and end the call. Vance's parents must do well to have this equipment. Then again, it might just be something people have, and the orphanage didn't.Robin comes into the kitchen, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes.You give her a quick peck on the lips. "Good timing! We're going to go shopping for Jeanine."Robin slowly starts to wake. "OK, where are we going? Oh! Can we do a makeover!"Jeanine looks at Robin. "Makeover? What's wrong with how I look now?" She's not defensive, but legitimately concerned.You look at her, a little envious. "Nothing, we just need to show you off so even Vance sees it.">Somewhere classy, that'll stand out>Practical travel clothes, she'll be like you and Robin>She needs something downright trashy to get his attention>Something else

>>30942647>Practical travel clothes, she'll be like you and RobinVance seems to like our practical outfits, and if Jeanine really has such great assets Vance should be cool with whatever she wears around.

After scribbling down a quick note for Vance, you take off.You never really had a doll when you were growing up. You're a little ashamed of how giddy you are to play dress-up with Jeanine. Especially with Robin helping you out."First you need some clothes that are better for traveling. Something tough and practical." She looks skeptical, but she comes along to the store you drag her to.You find just the place. Braundalin has pretty much everything, it seems. "Nope, you don't want this one. This material can chafe if it gets hot." You and Robin help her pick something else out. You find an outfit that you assumed would look frumpy, but it fits her form almost cartoonishly well. "That works." Robin nods enthusiastically in agreement.Next stop is a place that sells dresses. There are a lot to choose from here. You and Robin dress her up and strip her down repeatedly with a thousand different dresses. Finally, you find a simple black number that even makes Robin drool a little. You'd be jealous if you weren't busy ogling her yourself. "Perfect. Vance might be dense, but he's not blind."(continued)
>>30943344Finally, there's one more stop you want to make. It's a hip store that sells lingerie, summer wear, hip new clothes, and unmentionables. Jeanine once again looks skeptical. "What are we doing here?You just grin wickedly as you take her inside. You start doing the dress up routine again, except this time Robin vanishes for a bit. When she comes back, you've already helped Jeanine find a piece of lingerie that makes yours look downright conservative.Jeanine looks at herself in the mirror. "Are you sure about this?"Robin nods again, even more enthusiastically than before. You put your hand around Jeanine's shoulder. "If he doesn't get the hint after seeing you in this, we'll check him for a pulse."Jeanine smiles and poses in the mirror. "This is actually really comfortable."You're glad that's settled. You head back to Vance's house to get the big lug. You make sure to hide Jeanine's dress and lingerie bags on your way in. That's a surprise for later.Vance greats you warmly. "There you are! What's the plan for today?">Go to the Pokemon center to choose who you'll use for the gym>You're good. Head to the gym now>You want to train at the fitness center first>Something else

>>30943403>You want to train at the fitness center first
>>30943462Voting in advance to pretend to fall asleep on her.
>>30943593Ooooooh...I like it.Later though.
You head to the Pokemon center first. You want to make sure you're selecting the right team. Plus it's a good idea to make sure everyone is in top shape before the gymJeanine is doing a fairly good job of acting normal, but she keeps looking over at Vance. Robin just stares between the both of them.Vance finally says something "Are those new clothes? They look good.""Oh, these things? Just something we picked up." Jeanine is somebody you'll have to watch. She's nowhere as wide open as Vance and Robin."Cool. Get anything else?"Robin interrupts. "H-hey! We're here! Here at the Pokemon center. Let's go inside!" Smooth."Does anyone know anything useful about the gym here?" The question isn't directed to anyone in particular.Robin is the first to answer. "There are two leaders. Braundalin used to have two feuding gyms but instead of fighting until one of them gave up, they decided to merge instead. They usually take challengers in a double battle, using four Pokemon in total. There's Dalim and Sid. Dalim is Vance-shaped, but he's the Dark type leader. Sid is...creepy. Like a talking snake. He's the fighting type leader." They must have influenced each other a lot. "They change up their Pokemon a lot, but they almost always use their Bisharp and Hitmonlee." She takes a breath. "Hitmonlee is strange though. If it's not taken out right away, it paralyzes Pokemon. It's not like normal paralyzing either, it's like it just presses buttons on them that shuts them down."Vance is listening intently. "Pressure points.">Just heal up and head out>Swap Pokemon (Specify)>Ask Vance about pressure points>Something elseCurrent Party:Devon (Houndour)Destiny (Horsea)Vlad (Golbat)Zappy Dan (Magnemite)Leviathan (Gyarados)Nibbles (Tyrunt)PC Pokemon:Trunks (Phantump)Raistlin (Abra)
>>30943866>Ask Vance about Pressure points>Heal upI'm suggesting Levi, Vlad, Devon, and Destiny.
>>30943866>>Ask Vance about pressure points>Switch out Vlad with Raistlin
>>30943866Do we get to fight with a partner, or four of our pokemon Gobble?If so, we should plan around having a Teammate.
>>30943923>I'm suggesting Levi, Vlad, Devon, and DestinyPut Trunks instead of Destiny and i'm ok with this.
>>30943866>>30943923That's our best options.>>30944009>Ghost type>Dark gymI don't follow your reasoning.
>>30943988Yeah, we should ask.
>>30943988>>30944040Shit, meant to mention that part. You can challenge it alone, or with a partner.You ask Robin about partners. She looks nervous. "I did see people do both. I think they let you bring a partner if you want but if they think one of them is carrying the other, they'll deny you the badge."
>>30944105>Ask Robin if she'd like to go for it together.
>>30944009He's probably not the best optionHonestly, we don't really have any pokemon who are going take this gym easily, this will probably be the first challenging gym we've faced. The only super effective we've got is Raistlin on Fighting types, but on the flip-side Darks are generally completely immune to psychic.>>30944105In that case we should hit it up with Vance He can cover our asses against the Dark leader
>>30944149Vlad has a 4x resist to fighting and isn't weak to Dark. That should help a lot
Guys don't forget Dan is almost evolving, we should take him to the battle.
I think we should do Vlad and Leviathan in a double battle with Robin.
>>30944193But fighting type has 2x damage to Dark to deal out the damage.I like Vlad, but he's not exactly a cannon, and in a double battle I'm not sure how reliable the usual tactics will be. Still a solid pick though
Levi seems like a solid choice to me, super effective against the fighting type and enough raw power to be useful against the dark type. not sure who should be our second though
>>30944208>Robin used magikarp It beat the shit out of everything
I bet Robins going to use her Vulpix and Dratini.Geodude is weak to Rock, so he's out, magikarps a magikarp, and Eevee is possible too.Vance will probably use Machop and Stunky, since ursaring and Sneasel are both weak to fighting.
You're still feeling very conflicted about who to bring. It's a tough choice. You want more information first."Vance, what do you know about pressure points?"He takes a seat at one of the tables and gestures for everyone else to do the same. "You probably saw that participation ribbon I had for a martial arts tournament, next to all of my sisters awards." Jeanine nods. "There was this guy there, skinny, lanky even. He took his glasses off before the fight and had to take a few minutes to adjust his eyes. I'm not proud, but I got really cocky. I barely went through the motions for stretching. When the match started, I just walked right up to him. I felt bad for the guy! I didn't want to just knock him senseless, but I had to do something so I reached out to grab him and put him in a hold."Vance sighs."That's when it happened. He hit my arm, two, maybe three times. It was fast. I tried to grab him again, but my arm just wouldn't respond. He kept hitting me with this little finger pokes and before I knew it, I couldn't move. I lost in the first round. It was...humbling. After that, I decided I needed to expand what I knew about fighting. I just happened to be watching a documentary on TV about Pokemon training, and I decided to pave my own way with a style based on Pokemon." He looks at you seriously. "If that Hitmonlee can do that too, take it out fast or from a safe distance.">Ask Robin if she wants to challenge the gym with you>Ask Vance if he wants to challenge the gym with you>You want to challenge it yourself>Something else
>>30944395>Ask Robin if she wants to challenge the gym with youIf she says no, then Vance.Would snake like or winged pokemon be affected the same way?
>>30944272Levi's also the big, obvious threat that would both tank and draw heat off Robin's team, potentially letting her take bigger risks for big payoffs.
>>30944395>Ask Robin if she wants to challenge the gym with youThe power of love will win the day.
>>30944395>Ask Robin if she wants to challenge the gym with you
>>30944395>You want to challenge it yourselfVance has 2/4 pokemon weak to FightingRobin has another 3/5 pokemon weak to fightingTogether they have just the right amount of pokemon to do this together. We're much better off on our own
>>30944395>You want to challenge it yourselfLets do this
>>30944395ask Vance if he plans on challenging the Gym. If not, then we can ask Robin if she wants to team up....
Well, hitmonlee is weak to flying, so I think we should definitely use Vlad, since he could both confuse him and deal some damage.But should we send him out first or second
You look to Robin. She knows what you're thinking."Did...did you want to challenge it together?"Your gaze meets hers. "Only if you're alright with that."Robin breaks the gaze. "I do but...I don't want to make us lose." She means she doesn't want to make you lose. It's either that, or she thinks you'll cause her to lose and she just doesn't want to say anything. You try to read her face. You don't see any guilt. You figure she's telling the truth. "It'll be fine," you assure her. She lightens up when you put your hand on her back.She looks up at you. "Don't be mad at me, OK?" She really needs to work on her confidence. If she didn't say yes, you were considering asking Vance.You're still conflicted about who take. You're leaning towards keeping Levi, but you figure Nibbles* probably won't be a good fit for this gym. Maybe you can just decide who not to take for now, and figure it out when you see what you're up against with your own eyes.>Don't take Devon (Houndour)>Don't take Destiny (Horsea)>Don't take Vlad (Golbat)>Don't take Zappy Dan (Magnemite)>Don't take Leviathan (Gyarados)>Don't take Trunks (Phantump)>Don't take Raistlin (Abra)[quote only to settle it]*if you guys really want, that can be voted on, but I just figured this would save time
>>30944646Second.Levi would be first, because she can range Hitmonlee with dragon rage.How does Hitmonlee hit the the tiny pressure points with big meaty fists like his.
>>30944478Lets do this one.Besides Vance and Robin aren't as strong trainers as the MC and it could be seen as a carry if we take either of them.
>>30944395>You want to challenge it yourselfWe've got Leviathan Vlad, Dan, and Devon. We'll shred the fighting side, devon'll be able to take out the pawniard pretty well, and we'll close with Dan since he can't handle the fighting-type
>>30944678>Don't take Zappy Dan (Magnemite)
>>30944678>Don't take Trunks (Phantump)
>>30944678>Don't take Raistlin (Abra)
>>30944395>Ask Robin if she wants to challenge the gym with you.Her (useful) pokemon are Geodude, Vulpix, Dratini, Houndour and Eevee. Not only would she be in bad shape if she faced the gym alone, but having some of her better suited pokemon on our side puts us in a good position. If Robin sends out dratini first and uses thunder wave on that hitmonlee, we could be in really good shape. Or she could try vulpix first to deal with bisharp without using exposing one of the houndours to hitmonee
>>30944688He doesn'tHe kicks the big meaty pressure points
>>30944745Right, Lee, whoops.
>>30944740>Geodude>Hondour>Eevee>All weak to fightingVery useful
>>30944780we can take the fighting stuff, its the dark-type other than Pawniard we have to worry about
Is Gobble kia?
You'll leave Trunks for now. He's been great, but you don't want to put him in a fight he can't win.Robin looks like her mind is racing. You can tell she's in a bad position for this gym. "I think I'll use Dratini at first unless there's a big surprise."The gym looks like the classical image of a large dojo from the outside. You enter and take a look around before finding the leaders. There's a small audience wing on the side. The gym itself looks like a standard grass battlefield but there are very tall patches of grass scattered about. It would be easy to hide in there.Finally, you see the two people that fit the description. You want Robin walk out in front. "Excuse me. We'd like to challenge your gym." You never know what to say. You just do your best to sound confident.The large one, Dalim, looks at Robin. "You look familiar."The skinny man, Sid, comes close to inspect her. "That's Robert's kid. The one that came by before with the notepad and watched us for awhile." It seems Robin's scouting wasn't nearly as subtle as she thought. She tries to shrink. "Sssso, you did your research and spent quite a long time preparing to battle usss. I applaud your methodical, patient approach to training, but Pokemon battles also require a cccertain degree of improvisssation and bravery. I hope you have those in equal partsss."(continued)
>>30945184no just waiting for someone to post that
>>30945184>>30945214It's a motherfucking superpower, I swear...
>>30945214Since she's using Dratini we should use Levi. She can cover paralyzing Hitmonlee if he comes out first.
>>30945214She looks incredibly uncomfortable under his scrutiny. You think it's on purpose. Like the other gym leaders, this one is trying to psyche her out and size her up at the same time. You interject before it goes further. "We'd like to battle you together, if that's alright.""Yessss, yessss, absolutely." He gives you a scrutinizing look. "I'm sure your relationship can survive if one of you crushes the other's dream."Dalim rolles his eyes. "Don't let him get to you. We accept."Robin is a mess of nerves. As they both take their places at the opposite side of the gym, she looks up to you. "I-I barely got through the last gym. I'm going to mess up!">Tell her to relax, you know she'll do great>Whatever happens, happens, just have fun>Get that fire part of her going. Bring up her dad to motivate her>You're more worried that you'll bring her down>She's right. You changed your mind, you want to take them on yourself>Something else

If she's pulling out Dratini first, Vlad'll do great. She paralyzes, we confuse, and then focus on dropping the fighters first.
>>30945268>Tell her to relax, you know she'll do greatAlso, if we are sending out Levi first, we had better tell her, because if she's scared of our pokemon as well as the opponent, bad things are going to happen.
>>30945366I hadn't even considered that.
>>30945366Yeah, we should warn her about Levi.
>>30945268Does she have a pokemon that can use smokescreen or the like? Because that + dragon rage = easy win.
>>30945474Horsea has smokecreen. We could send Destiny out first and combo it up.

"Are you two ready?" Dalim shouts from across the arena.You look to Robin. "That's just nerves talking. Relax and you'll do fine." You give her a big grin. "We can handle these guys." In truth, you're almost relieved she feels that way. If she didn't need you to be a rock here, you'd probably be doing what she's doing. "Your problem is that your biggest enemy and opponent is in your head. You haven't even lost a match since I've been with you."She's a little better, but you can see her small chest rise and fall faster than it should. "That just means I'm due."You just act normal. "If you're leading with Dratini, try to use Thunderwave on Hitmonlee as soon as you can."She seems more focused now. "R-right! I was thinking the same thing."Good. You're on the same wavelength. "I don't know yet, but I might end up using Leviathan." She looks nervous again. "I know that's scary, but think of how scared their Pokemon will be."She smiles. It seems half-geniune too. She gives the signal to the referee that you're ready."This match will be a double battle. Each trainer is allowed two Pokemon each. Only the challengers may switch Pokemon."Dalim sends out Bisharp, and Sid sends out Hitmonlee. You hope their second Pokemon aren't as intimidating.Robin is reaching for Dratini's ball. Maybe after this you'll train with her to get a better understanding of her Pokemon.>Go Devon! (Houndour)>Go Destiny! (Horsea)>Go Vlad! (Golbat)>Go Zappy Dan! (Magnemite)>Go Leviathan!

>>30945866Hey! "Warlock." My powers come from Satan, not some pagan bullshit.>the cauldronSHUT THE FUCK UP, CAPTCHA!
>>30945861Bounce is a flying type move.If we time it with Dratini's thunderwave that's a good combo that could possibly OHKO.
>>30945861If our plan with thunderwave works out, gyarados can use bounce, which is flying type too, and technically more powerful than wing attack.I personally voted for Vlad anyway though, but Leviathan is not an unreasonable choice.
>>30945906am i the only one thinking that hitmonlee is going to have the fuckin limber ability

>>30945923I hate you for seeding doubt into my fragile psyche... WE'RE GUNNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!
>>30945923I'm expecting it to have Unburden and one of the berries that removes paralysis
>>30945923Possible. But Reckless is like the signature ability of Hitmonlee.
>>30945923Probably.I'm playing it safe here. Parafusion.
>>30945923Well...there goes all of our carefully laid plans.
>>30945959that is worse! godamnit
>>30945923That's why we use both Paralyze and confusion
Man, Bisharp looks so much like a Megaman boss it isn't even funny
>>30945923Even if he has limber, Vlad is probably faster and can open up with confuse rayAnd Leviathan's bounce make it unhittable on its first turn.
>>30945989Cutman's more successful line.
So how to deal with Bisharp? He's resistant to a lot.Just keep him parafused for the entire battle?
>>30946026Robin has a vulpix, and if we can take out the fighting types, both of us have houndours. Robin's even knows flamethrower
>>30946026Yup.He's a really bad matchup for us. I think we might have to utilise Leviathan to deal with him once he's parafused.
>>30946026Our best bet would be to use Levi's Dragon Dance and just pound on the fucker.
>>30946042But then he has another fighting type after that, which houndour is weak to.
>>30946026Keep EVERYTHING parafused the whole battle.Operation Queen of Status Effects continues according to plan.
>>30946048Once the weird pressure-point thing is out of the way yeah, we should have a bit of time to pull off a Dragon Dance.
Dalim and Sid exchange a look. He redoubles his efforts to mess with you. "It will take more than ssssspeeed to win here. I hope you have a sssstrong bond with your partnersss, both people and Pokemon." Do you really have a strong bond with Vlad? How about Robin. You like them both, but can you intuitively know how they'll react? Can they do the same for you?Just as predicted, Robin sends out Dratini. "G-go Dratini!" Her Dratini really is slender and beautiful. Just like Raistlin, it's attentive and has a sharp air about it.You shake your head. It's just mind games.

>>30946026take out the fighting types, then use Levi and either vulpix or Robin's houndour when/if Dratini and Vlad faint
>>30946042So our strategy is basically to race to take out the fighting guy and then deal with the dark guy?Better start thinking of ways to use the terrain because we need to be quick and keep our pokes up for longer. Maybe have Vlad dart through the tall grass while he flies to keep him from being targeted and use him to ambush when they go after dratini.

>>30946089>>Confuse Ray, it's more accurate than SupersonicOn Hitmonlee. Hopefully the Bisharp wont hit us too hard.
How big is Dratini anyways? They're pretty small right, think she's small enough for a golbat to carry without too much trouble?It'd be cool having a golbat carrying around a dratini while it shoots ice-breams from the sky
>>30946089>Confuse Ray, it's more accurate than Supersonic>>30946108This is also a good idea. We should try to use Vlad's speed and the terrain to make him a pain in the ass to hit.
>>30946192They're tall, but weigh nothing. Just under six feet and just over seven pounds, IIRC
I doubt the tall grass will be too useful for long, considering bisharp is literally made of blades. It'd probably get cut pretty quick.We'd be better off leaving it for later, if Dratini falls and she sends our Vulpix we can lure a pokemon into the tall grass then light it on fire
massively off-topic, but we need to get Vance a hawlucha
>>30946240no, we need to use it early game, to confuse both of them. If Bisharp cuts the grass, we'll have a wider area to flashburn later, fine no matter which of our pokemon are out and potentially devastating for the opposition
>>30946240>>30946282I wonder if Robin knows her Houndour's ability? If it is flash fire, he can wait in the grass and set it on fire. Not only would the blaze make him stronger (and not hurt him), but it would also hurt whatever pokemon follows him in there.Plus, if no other pokemon follows, he can throw down some sweet flamethrowers.
>>30946282>potentiallyMy dick could be potentially in your ass
>>30946338It could. I only used potentially because it absolutely will skullfuck Bisharp, but could be useless on the off chance that the other dark pokemon is a houndour/houndoom
>>30946224WhatAre they made of styrofoam
>>30946360Even if we do have weak attacks on Bisharp, we could still have our two-one advantage plus the status effects.
"Vlad! Use Confuse Ray on Hitmonlee!" Vlad moves faster than anyone can react. He flies low to the ground to get into range and lets off a Confuse Ray at Hitmonlee. He keeps a good distance.Sid is just a little slower. "Hitlomee! Bring it down with Megakick! Do not let it escape."Something about having Vlad on the field makes you feel faster. "Vlad! Grass!" It's all you have to say. Vlad already has a habit of flying low to be evasive. He dives through the grass, chased by a confused Hitmonlee.Just as Hitmonlee emerges from the grass, Dratini nails it with a Thunderwave. It doesn't have any effect though.Robin looks dismayed. "I'm supposed to know this! It has Limber!"Dalim is calm and collected "Swords Dance, Bisharp." Bisharp completed a quick dance, and you see phantom swords surrounded it for just a brief second. Dalim looks to Sid. "Calm down. I'm coming."You're not too worried yet. Hitmonlee is still in the grass with Vlad and confused.>Wing Attack, a strong Flying type move!>Supersonic, confusion works great.

>>30946449>Confuse Ray, it's more accurate than SupersonicWe should confuse bisharp now.Fuckin' Swords dance too, if he gets too powerful we should send out devon and use roar, remove his stat bonuses.

>>30946449>Confuse Ray, it's more accurate than SupersonicSTOP BISHARP
>>30946449confuse ray on bisharphe hits himself after that dance and he's not going to be having a good day
>>30946449"Limber? Does that mean it can't be Paralyzed? Good thing you told me; now we can work together to finish them off now that we know what to avoid."This is probably too long of a thing to say. But basically, their side has a partner reminding both of them of the good, and so should ours. And in this case, knowing really could be half the battle. Especially if she can identify some of the other abilities too.Supersonic, preferably when one of their team is trying to talk to the other. The noise alone may irritate Sid into doing more risky things that can be exploited, in addition to the attack effects. Warn Robin for the same reason.
Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll just kill himself because of confusion while we can play keep away
>>30946611Oh I didn't even think of that, he's gonna be doing double damage to himself after the swords dance, which offsets the steel resistance.
>>30946624Your responses are always really, really easy to tell apart from others
>>30946625Of course, the rather prominent thought is that we only know the special ability of the other mon.
>>30946654Eh, I get too wordy, and tend to suggest things to think about instead of actions. Though I haven't posted in a few threads I think, so perhaps confusion with another anon.
>>30946655Bisharp can have Defiant, Inner Focus or in rare circumstances Pressure. We never flinch any pokemon, so Inner Focus doesn't matter, but defiant will raise bisharp's attack slightly if Leviathan comes in with intimidate.

"Vlad! Confuse Ray on Bisharp this time!" Vlad wastes no time. He bursts out of the grass an incredible speed and nails Bisharp with a Confuse Ray.Sid commands Hitmonlee to target Vlad with another Mega Kick. Hitmonlee flies from the bushes to deliver it, but in it's confusion it missed and collides with Bisharp instead. There's a solid TONG as the kick connects. It's a Normal type move, but it still hits hard against Bisharp.Dalim is less calm now. "Sid! Think!" He focuses back on the arena. "Bisharp, Iron Head on that Golbat, dead ahead! Do not strike to your left!"Bisharp rushes after Vlad! Bisharp is confused and Vlad is just too fast. Bisharp misses and hits it's head on the ground.Robin shakes her head. "R-right! Dratini, Twister!"Dratini let's loose a small tornado. It sweeps around the arena in an arc and hits both Hitmonlee and Bisharp.Bisharp hits the ground hard. It's clearly out of the fight. Dalim glares at Sid. "So much for that plan. Bisharp, return!"You look to Robin. It's all about trusting your friends.He sends out a new Pokemon. "Honchcrow!

"Vlad! Keep it up with Confuse Ray!""Honchkrow! Hit it with a Swagger!"Vlad hits Honchkrow first, but Honchkrow is able to complete the move as well, and both Pokemon end up confused. They both fail to avoid each other in flight and collide in the air.You thought you heard it before, but you definitely notice the laughter from the spectators now.Dalim sighs. "This is a-""Mockery!" Sid shouts. "Hitmonlee! While its down. Ssssstop that Golbat! Mega Kick! Hit the right one this time!" Hitmonlee shakes off it's confusion and lands a devastating blow to Vlad as he's getting up.Vlad isn't knocked out yet, but he doesn't seem able to fly. You don't think it's the confusion either. He flaps one wing, but the other does nothing."Dratini! Slam on Hunchkrow." Robin points to her target.Dratini connects the slam just as Honchkrow is struggling to get back in the air. The power of the Slam nails it just as it's taking off.Dalim shakes his head. "What a mess."All four Pokemon are in close quarters now just outside a patch of tall grass. Vlad is confused and badly hurt. Hitmonlee has taken some damage, Dratini is fine, and Honchkrow has taken some damage and is confused."Don't fall for Confussssse Ray again Hitmonlee."

>>30947189If he just starts throwing special sweepers or defensive pokemon that work with stuff like leech seed or status moves like us at us, confusion will be less effective.

Rolled 59>>30947220>>Poison Fan (d100), Vlad probably hits hard with that one
>>30947437We fought our gyarados on the deck of a boat, and it nearly wrecked our shit. This one definitely can
>>30947454I thought he was in the water, and we were on the deck
>>30947480Wait is it is a he? I thought Levi was a she.
>>30947480Maybe I got that wrong, but I though both of the gyarados we were up against at the time were on the deck. I know for sure the other one was because Vance punched it in the face, so I just assumed ours was too.
>>30947518It's a she
>>30947521Neither were.Vance was reaching out over the railing.
>>30947521I thought it was more like the gyrados was in the water standing up with her face over the side of the deck>>30947518It's a she, it was a typo
>>30947518>>30947547If Robin's magikarp evolves into a Male Gyrados they can have little fish babies and it will be beautifully symbolic of the Robin/Robin relationship.
Vlad is in rough shape. You really want to have him use his new Poison Fang, but you also don't want to ask more of him right now. "Vlad! Come back." You return him to his Pokeball. "You did a great job." You pull out a different Pokeball. "Levi! It's your turn!"The massive Gyarados appears in a large flash of light. She roars loudly as she appears high in the air. You're not sure how sporting or legal this type of this is, but you figure someone would have mentioned it if it was. Probably."Hitmonlee! Don't let that annoying little Dratini esssssscape! High Jump Kick!" Hitmonlee flies through the air, legs spinning rapidly. They nail poor Draitini right in the head and she's sent flying back. She skips across the ground."Dratini!" Robin returns Dratini. "You did well. Take a rest." Seeing Dratini get taken out in out strong blow like that shakes you and Robin. Hitmonlee is still very dangerous. To your surprise, Robin takes out Joltik. You notice she releases it almost directly into the tall grass. She might be using it's electrical power on Honchkrow, or maybe relying on it being a Bug type to help against Hitmonlee and whatever other Fighting type comes next.Dalim has calmed down. "Honchkrow, just Roost for now. Don't do anything complicated. This is going to get nice and dirty."[Remember to specify target]>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!>Bite, you can use the force of coming down to make it hurt>Dragon Rage before you land!>Dragon Dance on the way down.
>>30947547You are correct on both counts.
>>30947577We should totally breed them for fresh magicarp steaks whenever we want.
>>30947577>A straight relationship symbolic of a gay relationship>>30947592>>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!Aim for Hitmonlee but see if you can't hit Honchkrow on your way down too. You're fucking giant, use that fatass of yours

>>30947592>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!Hitmonlee if we can see it
>>30947592>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!Wreck Hitmonlee
>>30947592>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!Let's do this. Hitmonlee won't know what hit him
>>30947592Bounce on Hitmonlee.
>>30947592>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!on Hitmonlee
>>30947592>>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!bye hitmonlee
I really hope Levi listens to us.
I think Robin might be laying a trap with Joltik's webs while hiding in the grass.We should try to keep everyone's attention on Gyrados and lead their pokemon into said trap.
>>30947686Gyarados isn't the type to "lead" things anywhere.She kills things, plain and simple.
>>30947694Then keep their attention. Robin should be able to set things up around it.
>>30947592>>She's already in the air. Come down with Bounce!Pwn Hitmonlee. The type difference had ought to make it work.

>>30947220swap vald out for levi, not only is vlad hurt, but he's in a bad position being right next to a melee fighter.
>>30947816yer a little behind man. Levi is about ta BOUNCE the hitmonlee
"Finish Hitmonlee with Bounce!" She's eager to show how badly she can crush her enemies, so she listens with glee. For now.Dalim shouts to Sid. "We can't let that thing go unchecked, even if it's costly." Sid nods. "High Jump Kick! Meet it in the air!"Levi and connect midway in the air, but it's no contest. Hitmonlee's kick does little to stop the powerful Gyarados as it uses it's full weight and power.You feel the ground shake as Hitmonlee is crushed into the ground. Only after Levi gets out her triumphant roar does she move out of the way so Hitmonlee can be returned."It will take more than brute forccce." Sid warns. He sends out a new Pokemon. "Gurdurr, you're perfect for this opponent. Do not hesitate!" A roughly person-shaped Pokemon with a steel beam appears. This must be one of those special Pokemon that are so attached to an object that the league lets them have it.Robin practically whispers her command at the bush containing Joltik. From what you can tell, instead of shooting attacks from the cover, she's setting a trap."Honchkrow! Foul Play on that Gyarados! Use it's own strength against it!" Honchkrow is still confused, but together enough to focus for this attac. It comes in fast at Gyarados. You don't even really see how it happens, but almost like a judo master, Honchkrow is able to hit Levi with a powerful blow that seems stronger than something it should be able to do."Foul Play uses a Pokemon's own strength against it." Robin explains. That fits. It's a good thing Levi seems able to take a hit as well as dish it out.>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yet>Bite, it's strong and might cause a flinch >Dragon Rage. It's reliable damage no matter what the circumstance>Dragon Dance will make Levi unstoppable, if she can handle the beating>Swap back to Vlad. He's technically still in this.
>>30947928>>Dragon Rage. It's reliable damage no matter what the circumstanceI'd say bite but he's resistant to dark.
>>30947928>>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetGotta get out of the way of that Gurrdurr
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yet
>>30947928>Dragon Dance will make Levi unstoppable, if she can handle the beating
>>30947928We need to coordinate with Robin's trap. I'd say another bounce would at least get everyone's attention up in the air and not on the ground.
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetOn GurdurrIt'll buy both Gyarados and Joltik time
>>30947928>>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetdodge the gurrdur, hit the gurrdurr
>>30947928We need to give Robin time to finish her trap.
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetGurrdurr
>>30947928>Dragon Rage. It's reliable damage no matter what the circumstancehit Gurdurr with it, since Joltik's gonna hit Honchkrow with a double electroweb
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetAgainst Gurdurr.Dragon Dance is a bad idea, it will make Foul Play even more devastating. I don't see her lasting that much longer, at this rate.
>>30947928>>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetOn Gurdurr
>>30947928>>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yet>>30947970I agree with this Anon.
>>30947928>Dragon Dance will make Levi unstoppable, if she can handle the beatingits knows rock throw
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetTry to use it to push the Honchkrow out of the way on the upswing so we're clear to hit gurrdur on the way down.
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetfedorabird can only setup that way
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetstraight onto GurdurrVlad can finish if we need him to, since Levi won't want to come back in
DO NOT USE AN eFFECT ON GURDURRIt probably has guts and gobble is using it to stop us from spamming parafusion.
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yeton gurdurrtake this mug out. hopefully they'll forget about what ever Robin's joltik is doin
>>30947928>Bounce! Don't let them hit Leviathan yetWe can land a devastating hit on gurdurr, but we should focus more on distracting the enemy with the attack and buying time for Joltik. It's better if we try to avoid damage here than trying to finish the fight. Robin is smart, her plan will probably be seriously dangerous
>>30948052I'm betting she's setting electrowebs through a string shot, so when Honchkrow comes down to snatch it up it gets zapped to death
>>30948073Meaning if Leviathan can Bounce Gurdurr the fuck out, Joltik can deal with Honchkrow
Rock Throw, Rock Slide, or Stone Edge?
>>30948194it won't matter once we BOUNCE
Sid is too confident about Gurdurr for this to be good news. Luckily it seems like his Hitmonlee just wasn't able to disable Levi like it does with other Pokemon. Maybe it's her long body or unfamiliar muscles. Honchkrow looks fresh after that Roost. Robin is planting a trap, you need to trust her and Levi."Levi! Bounce! Quick!" Levi seems to be more than happy to follow that command after destroying Hitmonlee.Just in time too. Sid yells his command to Gurdurr. "Stone Edge!" The rocks land where Leviathan was just fractions of a second before. She's either oblivious to the danger or thinks nothing of it.Even Honchkrow misses another Foul Play on Levi. It narrowly avoids getting hit with the stones. You can see the look that Dalim and Sid are giving each other, and you're almost worried the match will get called off because they'll start a fist fight. They both look up at Levi in the air as she reaches her apex.Dalim shouts at Sid. "It doesn't matter! She's just left her partner alone! Find that bug!" Damn, you hope Robin is ready. He directs his Honchkrow into the bushes. Just as its wing taps one of the blades of grass, an immense electrical explosion fires out. Joltik scrambles out of the grass just in time. Honchkrow is hit so hard that feathers fly out. It lands on the ground, completely out of it.Robin is looking like a whole new person now. She's too busy to be shy or self-doubting. She's full of fire as she yells out in excitement. "Electroweb after Electroweb! Great job!" Just as you're admiring how much different she looks when she changes her posture like that, Levi comes crashing down on Gurdurr.WHOOM! She's hit it even harder than Hitmonlee. Again, she roars triumphantly before moving out of the way."Gurdurr is unable to fight. The challengers win!"Levi immediately look to you for your reaction.>Thank Levi for listening to you>Congratulate Levi on her win>Compliment Levi for her incredible strength>Act unimpressed>Something else
>>30948227nah, doesn't seem like the kind of thing this guy'd teach a Gurdurr, especially since it doesn't learn it naturally

I'd love to see Levi and Kat doing a celebratory Dragon Dance together become a regular post-match thing.
"Thank you for listening. You did great Levi. That was an awesome win." She roars again. She really likes doing that. "I'm really proud of you. You're strength was incredible!" You scratch her in the spot she likes. You feel like you've really made a connection with her. "Isn't it great when we work together?"You take Vlad out too. You've careful to catch him as tries to fly. His wing looks fine, other than not flapping with the other one. "You did awesome too Vlad." He looks really happy to hear that. He tries to lick your face but can't manage it until you lift him a little higher. You decide to put him back in his Pokeball before he hurts his pride. He did great and deserves a rest.Joltik climbs up Robin and rests on her head. She laughs and pretends to show off her new hat. You run over to her and give her hard tight hug. After a few seconds you feel Vance and even Jeanine come in and squeeze you both. You don't mind."That was incredible!" Jeanine says. I mean, you were both amazing.Vance pats you both on the back, making it hard to keep your balance. "Just great! We should celebrate."You can't argue with that. You want to get your badge first. You look over to Dalim and Sid, and they're shouting at each other furiously. This might get serious.>Stay out of it, you can ask for the badge when they're done>Sid is in the right, Dalim was wrong to send Honchkrow into the bush>Dalim is right, Sid messed with with Hitmonlee>Try to calm them down>Something else

>>30948547>>Try to calm them down
>>30948547>Stay out of itBut if pressed, it was both of their faults. They performed well individually, but never trusted each other, didn't work well together, and never took Robin seriously as a threat.

You keep out of it. You don't want to get involved if you can help it. So you wait. And keep waiting. They don't even stop to take a breath.The shouting dies down after a long, long time. Now they're debating the finer points of the match. Robin seems done with waiting. "Umm, excuse me, c-can we have out badges?"Sid looks down at her. "Whose fault was it?"Dalim steps in. "Sid! Don't drag her into this."You've had enough of this. "Look, you were both great as individual battlers."It was both of your faults. You never trusted each other, didn't work as a team."They look pretty embarassed to be lectured by you. You press on to drive it home. "And you definitely shouldn't have ignored Robin as a threat. Even just now when you said to leave her out of it, you didn't say the same to me. She can handle herself. She's my partner, and I trust her."Robin smiles up at you. You can tell that meant a lot to her. She holds your hand.Dalim and Sid are silent for a few moments, then they shake hands. "I hate your guts," Dalim says, nonchalantly."I as well," Sid says."But I respect the hell out of you.""I as well," Sid repeats.They both reach into their pockets and pull out two halves of a badge. They hand them to you and Robin. You play with it for a second before seeing how both halves click together."You both earned this. Sid and I are proud to have battled you.""Yesssssss, it wassss quite the match."With that settled, your party decides to head to the Pokemon center to heal up right away. Everyone is still really excited after the match. Robin keeps Joltik out, hanging off her shoulder.Jeanine puts her arm around you and Robin. "So what's the plan for the rest of the day?">Celebrate!
