>>37780990Gobble is kill
>>37781064Particularly lively for a dead man.
>>37780990>KatThat's...that's the same name as one of the pokefuckers quests.I didn't notice that until now.
You make a quick stop at the Pokemon center, get Devon and Destiny healed up, then it’s off to the ice-skating rink with Robin, Vance, Jeanine and Clair.The signs all say that Pokemon get in free as long as they’re accompanied by an owner, and no battling takes place.“We want people to be able to relax,” the man at the counter explains.You could take out your Pokemon, but some of them might not be suited to this, or might take all your attention to keep out of trouble>Just skate with Robin for now. Relax, have a romantic time>Let them all out. It'll be chaotic, but fun>Let out everyone except Levi and Dan. Levi will be a handful and Dan floats>Something else
>>37781140>Something elseLet 'em out one at a time, but mostly skate with Robin.

>>37781140>Let them all out. It'll be chaotic, but funWEEE>>37781115Was it voted on by anons? Would explain it.
>>37781140>Let out everyone except Levi and Dan. Levi will be a handful and Dan floats
>>37781140>>37781200Sounds like a good idea to me!
>>37780990I think the song makes a great quest OP. The lyrics are very appropriate.
You quickly learn that it’s harder than it looks. Your rental skates feel uncomfortable and you have a hard time balancing on the ice.“Never skate before?” Jeanine asks, knowing the answer. “Come on,” she grabs you and Robin and starts leading you around while you try to get the hang of it. Soon you’re both at least getting to the point where your feet are on the ice more often than your butt."There! Vance and I will be over there," she points to the other side of the rink where faster skaters are. "Clair is around somewhere." She skates off with impressive grace.You start letting Pokemon out one at a time. First Devon. He skitters on the ice in confusion. His paws scramble wildly. He growls at the ice and you see fire gathering around his mouth. He’s going to melt it!“Devon! No!”He looks up at you sheepishly, and then puts his attention to keeping his balance. He keeps going way too fast and barreling passed you and Robin, crashing into a wall. You and Robin can’t help but giggle.“You’ll get the hang of it. Keep it up!”You toss out Nibbles, who has an even harder time of it. His legs pump furiously as he tries to keep balance and get traction. Devon get’s his balance just in time to have his legs taken out from under him by a sliding Nibbles.You and Robin manage slow and steady.>Talk about your Pokemon>Talk about upcoming towns and gyms>Talk about Team Imperium and the Elite Four>Something else[Write-in encouraged for all]
>>37781575>Talk about upcoming towns and gyms>Talk about Team Imperium and the Elite Four>Any advice for my upcoming battle?
>>37781656Sounds good. Supporting.
>>37781575>talk about marriage
>>37781680>>talk about marriageYes, also talk about a Pokemon ranch
>>37781575>>37781656>>37781680Well okay then. Those have my support.

How the fuck is Destiny still a damned Horsea? Come on we should be Kindra now
>Talk about your PokemonThat pipsqueak is way too thin to be Vance.
>>37781864She is a kingdra.
>>37781780It's not lewd, it's right and proper!
>>37781864dude, she just evolved. calm down.
>>37781864We are a Kingdra, we evolved last thread.Gobble made a mistake, I demand butts
>>37781864[Whoops. I didn't edit the OP text well enough! Have a butt]
>>37781864She evolved info a Seadra last thread. We'll probably wait until she's well ajusted to her new body before giving her the dragon scale.
>>37781958This is acceptable
>>37781961We didn't wait for Zappy Dan and he's peachy, albeit apathetic.
>>37782007We had to pend some time getting him ajusted, which could have been spent training. It's a bit better to be patient. May be when Jeanice gets a métal coat for her Scyther.
>>37781911Marriage is INCREDIBLY lewd.
>>37782157Maybe the honeymoon is, at least
You ask about the upcoming town’s and gyms as you toss out Trunks.Robin puts a finger on her mouth. It’s her usual gesture when lost in thought. “Alloycaster is on the coast to the East. It’s a town known for it’s rock quarries and unique coastal formations. The gym leader uses Steel types.”Steel huh? You haven’t fought a lot of those yet.“But we could always just head straight south and take a boat or Pokemon across the lake and end up close to Ampberg, where the Electric gym leader is. It’s a bit off the path though. We could also cross the lake to Faeden, but then we’d probably have to double back at some point. Faeden’s gym leader uses Fairy types.”You’ll have to decide later. You change the subject. “What do you think about Team Imperium and the Elite Four?”She thinks again. “I don’t know. I think Geno and Emma have their hearts in the right place, and it sounds like Cliff is against it but not able or willing to make a stand. I’m glad Emma and Geno are going to shut that down though. Hornbeam scares me. He doesn’t seem right.” She doesn’t mention her dad.You can agree to that. You hope Emma and Geno don’t run into any major trouble. Then again, they’re two of Elite Four! Speaking of. “Any tips for fighting Emma?”She thinks again. “She likes to fight defensively. You’ll either need to outlast her, or find a weakness. Don’t let her set up all her defences.”That’s surprisingly good advice. You’ll keep that in mind. You toss out Destiny. She spins and slides with absolute grace, until her new pointy bits touch the ice and she skids out of control. You hope she adjusts to her body.(continued)
>>37782321Is the map anywhere in the OP?
>>37782321“Robin, I’ve been thinking a lot about the future. Do you know how hard it is to set up a ranch? They have lots of Pokemon at once, right?”She nods. “Yep! It’s not hard at all. You just need enough space and to get a certificate. Actually, if you don’t have a trainer card, it’s even easier. The whole system is set up so…” She goes off into a flurry of bureaucratic details. You smile and nod. The process sounds simple, but the reasoning behind it all can fill a textbook. Eventually she wraps it up. “Why do you ask?”You toss out Dan. He floats apathetically. “Well, I was thinking about marriage and-”Robin trips on her skates. Almost simultaneously, you can Clair tripping on hers from across the rink. She was eavesdropping!You help Robin up with Dan’s help. She looks extremely flustered. She tries to say words but they come out jumbled.>Change the subject! You’re scaring her!>Point out Clair eavesdropping with her powers. She promised not to!>Press the subject. She does want to get married eventually, right?>Something else
>>37782345>>Point out Clair eavesdropping with her powers. She promised not to!Haha we caught ya, totally not avoiding anything
>>37782345>>Change the subject! You’re scaring her!TOO SOON

>>37782345>Point out Clair eavesdropping with her powers. She promised not to!Take it easy there.
>>37782421Have you ever heard teenagers in a first relationship talk?
>>37782345>Change the subject! You’re scaring her!-and I'm sure Jeanine and Vance are looking out for their future
>>37782392[Purple is the path so far, starting in the bottom left. Please forgive my shitty artistic skills]
>>37782345"Oh, don't worry, it's not like I can get you pregnant and we would have to get married."Let's tease her a little bit.
>>37782466We've introduced college/young adult mentality to persons who probably wouldn't have graduated primary education. I just don't want this thread to succumb to marriage speech. I want adventure, battles, financial responsibility and lewds.
>>37782345>Change the subject! You’re scaring her!Play it off as a joke, fast!
>>37782345>Help robin up>fall on her when trying to help>think Lewdly at Clair
Just play it off like we were trying to catch Clair out for eavesdropping, point out that she was and send angry Robin off in her direction.
Rolled 12, 13 = 25 (2d20)>>37782568Dude, relationships between teens sparks so much marriage conversation. Doubly so among lesbians.
>>37782697Not being a lesbian I wouldn't know.
"M-m-marriage?"Think fast! "..and I'm sure Jeanine and Vance are looking out for their future." Nice one! "Hey! Look over there! Clair was listening in with her powers.""Oh." Her face is crimson. Robin brushes herself off. You help and pay attention to her butt a little too much. You're only human. "B-But I made her promise not to!" She clumsily storms over to Clair across the ice.Clair knows she's been made. You see the uncharacteristic panic on her face as she does a terrible job acting casual. She tries to chat up some guy next to her.You skate over in time to hear the guy's reaction. "Are you sure? You don't look familiar.""Totally! Yup! We used to hang out all the time, you and I. Clair and...you! Buddy! Inseparable. Oh Hey Robin, meet my old pal! This guy here. We were just talking about the good old days, right? Ha ha!" She punches him in the arm. The guy rolls his eyes and skates off. Robin glares at Clair. "You promised."Clair looks between both of you. "Look, okay, I was listening. I admit it.""That's not okay Clair!" Robin scrunches her eyes and thrusts down her arms. She has to put in a lot of effort to express anger."I just... I've never had a relationship before, and I wanted to know how you guys made it work. I sure didn't want to see the inner details of Jeanine and my brother."You glance over at Jeanine seductively eating a frozen banana as she skates by Vance. He isn't paying attention to where he's going and trips over Trunks, who slides into Nibbles.>It doesn't matter what her excuse is. You're both furious at her!>It's fine this one time, but don't do it again.>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!>Something else
>>37782995>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!
>>37782995>It's fine this one time, but don't do it again.Honestly, her excuse makes some sense. But still.
>>37782995>>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!This is gonna be fun
>>37782995>That's understandable but you shouldn't do it anyway, whether us or them. You know, everyone else manages to stumble through this stuff without any real help, and it can be fun, you should try just jumping in rather than overthink things too much.
>>37782995>>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!COMMUNIC8
>>37782995>Something elseGo help Vance with the pokemon debacle, let Robin fume at Clair
>>37782995>It's fine this one time, but don't do it again.
>>37782995>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!NOT lewdly! Just say if she has anything she wants to know she can just ask.
>>37782995>>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!Seriously ask next time.
>>37782995>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!Poor girl must feel lonely, travelling with two couples.
>>37782995>It's fine this one time, but don't do it again.>Invite her to observe the relationship more closelyAsk Robin if she had prior experience in relationships before meeting us.
>>37782995>>Invite her to observe the relationship more closely. Skate with you and Robin, ask us questions!
>>37782995I feel bad for Clair. Telling her to actively not listen in with her level of psychic power is like telling Robin not to stutter like Jimmy Stewart everytime she's teased in public.
>>37783125Maybe we'll run info someone a long the way, like that nomad girl from before.
>>37783163Honestly, the cast is big enough right now. We barely have enough time for the five main characters and Kat's pokemon; we are practically ignoring everything about our partners' teams.
>>37783163Or like, you know, some guy eventually...
>>37783262I wasn't talking about adding another member to the group though.
You and Robin exchange a look. Teenage girls already have a unique ability to ask and answer questions with a glance that makes being psychic a redundancy sometimes."It's fine this time, but don't do it again."Clair slumps her shoulders in relief. "Thanks, and sorry. Not using my powers is hard. Sometimes I do it without realizing.""I guess that makes sense," Robin says. "It must be like asking someone not to hear or see."You and Clair cringe at Robin talking about vision. There's a quick awkward pause."Well, tell you what Clair. You can observe up close. Come on!" You grab her and Robin by the hands and skate. You're pretty terrible, but they're worse. Clair's shyness is replaced by a typical smarmy grin. "You're not going to get all lewd again are you? There are people here."You laugh as Robin blushes. "No, not that. Ask anything you want."Clair asks you and Robin about your relationship. A lot of it is typical stuff. Things she always knows, but wants you to explain your own way instead of just viewing memories.You let out Levi. She sees all the people and Pokemon and refrains from roaring. It looks like she's feeling a bit more reserved after getting in trouble for fighting Robin's Gyarados. She stays on her best behavior, which is commendable considering how many small Pokemon slide into her.You, Robin, and Clair enjoy a nice time on the ice with your Pokemon. It's odd how well Robin and Clair can get along. Or maybe it's not. Robin might be shy, but she's still often very direct if you look past her stuttering. You're the one that snakes and dances through a conversation. It's nice to see everyone laugh.A figure skates in front of you. "Having a good time? I hope you're ready for a battle!"It's Emma! That's right, she owns these rinks. She probably just arrived>Let's find a spot and throw down! You're always ready!>Ask about what happened with Hornbeam>Wait, you need more time to prepare!>Something else

>>37783545>>Let's find a spot and throw down! You're always ready!>>Ask about what happened with HornbeamQ and A comes first though.
“What happened to Hornbeam?” You try to keep your voice down.“What?”“Professor Hornbeam, the guy you and Geno were going to stop?”She looks like she’s really concentrating. “Oh, right. Sorry. I had a weird brainfart there or something.” You’re a little surprised that Elite Four member, a doctor, and pilot, has ‘brainfarts’, but everyone’s human. “I was hoping we could talk about that after. I didn’t want you to be distracted. He got away. We thought we were going to get the drop on him, but somehow he must have known we were coming. He stole a bunch of equipment and he and a disturbing about of Team Imperium people have vanished. A lot of money was siphoned out of Prosapia as well. Geno is following the trail, but I don’t know where it will lead.” She looks you in the eyes. “Kat, you and your friends need to be careful. What little we found is… disturbing. I don’t think he’s right in the head. We think he might go after people he believes have wronged him.” She looks around. “We should talk somewhere else.”You nod and follow after waving over Vance and Jeanine. You and your friends come to an empty rink. “We rarely have enough people to use this one, but it’s here just in case.”“It makes for a good arena,” you say. “I’m ready to fight.”She smiles. “Good. A trainer should always be ready.”You take a deep breath. You need to win this fight for Robin. You still feel it’s a bit twisted, betting something like her expertise to help someone you love, but you’ll play this game if it means a chance to help her.It’s a simple one on one. Emma looks fairly relaxed. She’s not worried at all. Why should she be? You take another breath to calm your nerves. She’s just another trainer. She can make mistakes.>Wait, you have another question first (write-in)>Toss out a Pokemon first. Throw her off with faux confidence (Specify)>Wait for Emma to throw out her Pokemon>Something else
>>37783873>Toss out a Pokemon first. Throw her off with faux confidence (Specify)Devon.

>>37783873>>Wait for Emma to throw out her Pokemon
>>37783940This might actually be okay. If she's setting up dual screens a surprise Mega Houndoom could throw her off before she can set them.
>>37783930I'm going with this, safest choice.
>>37783873>>37783940This, need to catch her off guard from the start.The "brain fart" is really suspicious.
>>37784031Mega evolve a houndoom in sunlight and the Sp Atk goes through the fucking roof.Dark pulse and Flamethrower are gonna be a rape train.
>>37784135Hah good luck, this fight is gonna be permahail and you know it.
Seems close-ish for an important decision. Let's do a quick quote-only vote.>Wait for Emma to toss a Pokemon>Throw out a Pokemon first
>>37784192>Wait for Emma to toss a Pokemon
>>37784192>>Wait for Emma to toss a PokemonActually I'm worried now that if we use our trumpcard Mega right now she's gonna chuck out a Mamoswine.
>>37784192>>Wait for Emma to toss a Pokémon
>>37784192>Wait for Emma to toss a pokemon first
>>37784267Honestly, while mega-devon is a nice trump card I'd rather not use it in this fight. Remember, she was asked to test us, and we don't really trust her or geno right now.
You friends take a seat off to the side. They shout variations of cheers and wishes for good luck. You wave to them, but keep your concentration on Emma. If she's really good enough to be an Elite Four member, you can't afford a single mistake. You'll need every trick you know and a few miracles. You watch and wait for her to choose a Pokemon."I can help," you hear a voice in your head. It's Clair. "Under normal circumstances I'd never do something like this, but I know how much you want to win. This match isn't anywhere close to fair."She's right. It's not snowing, but it's cold. It's in a place Emma knows well, and you're just a regular trainer against one of the best battlers in the region. Nothing about this is close to fair.But can you cheat like that?Emma casually reaches for a Pokeball and throws out an Abomasnow. "It's your choice, Kat," Clair says inside your head. "Nobody has to know."Your heart pounds. The whole reason you took this up was for Robin's eye. Isn't it wrong to let your pride get ahead of that? Or is it wrong to cheat in a match, even if it's unfairly stacked against you.>Yes, have Clair help>No. You can win this fair and square>Tell Clair to hold off unless you start losing badly>Something else
>>37784486>No. You can win this fair and squareThank you for your concern, but I knew this was a snowjob before I walked into it.

>>37784486>Tell Clair to hold off unless you start losing badlyMight need to mega evolve at some point. This battle is too important, we can't afford losing.
>>37784486>yes, have Clair helpOr better yet, have Clair get inside Emma's head to mess with her "brain fart" then radio back to us so we can shout it out and trip her up during the battle. maximum over fuckery
>>37784486>>No. You can win this fair and square
>>37784486>Tell Clair to hold off unless you start losing badlyDon't want to get 6-0'd even if it is the Elite Four.
>>37784486>Yes, have Clair helpThey don't play fair, and something is still up with Hornbeam. We need this win, we want them to know we are serious.
>>37784486>Tell Clair to hold off unless you start losing badly
>>37784486>Yes, have Clair helpThis is far from a normal match.
>>37784486>Tell Clair to hold off unless you start losing badlyWe might as well try to win on our own merits if we can.

Mind you, we can always tell her never mind later. I'd just rather have her ready to help than not.
>>37784672>>Tell Clair not to help at allHave her scan Emma's mind though. Something is wrong

>>37784748That first one was for the previous vote ya doof.
Seriously, guys? We're getting jerked around by overpowered criminal assholes and our first instinct is to "fight fair"? That's not what I'd call a smart choice.
>>37784790Emma is pretty alright.She would probs still help robin even if we lose
>>37784821Yeah, I don't trust her on that.
>>37784821I wouldn't count on it. We don't know her that well.
>>37784831We have a Houndoom and are one of three people in the region capable of mega evolution..? Seriously, unless there's a serious power disparity between the two of us, we should beat her, easily, even.
>>37784821No she wouldn't. She also "Forgot" About engaging hornbeam and had to be reminded and was flighty on the details.
"No, I can win this without cheating."You almost hear Clair sigh inside your brain. "Alright. Good luck."You nod and put your attention back on Emma and the match. A snowstorm whips around Abomasnow.Emma folds her arms. "Well? Don't make me start without you."She's really pressuring you. Sweat rolls down the side of your face. You need to choose a Pokemon, but what if the obvious choices play into her hands somehow? What if you don't pick the best matchup?>Devon. His typing and Sunny Day are perfect>Destiny.

>>37784995Fuck if I know man, I'm just trying to figure out what the hell Emma's game is.
>>37785031Yeah our poke-Honor is more important than Robins health! Especially when fighting criminals!
You assholes really think that Emma wouldn't help Robin if we lose?She's not some heartless prick.
>>37785062She's clearly intelligent and a powerful trainer, but I think she's just not that great at the whole bluffing/lying/misdirection thing.
>>37785093We don't know that, we don't know her at all.
>>37785093She said she'd help if we won. She wasn't really interested in helping in the first place.I'd prefer not to chance it. But hey let's rely on the kindness of others. After Kat's done that her whole life right? Wait...
[I'm feeling like a broken record, but it's better safe than sorry. Quote-only vote! Last time, I swear. Maybe I should revise the vote system in general?]>Use Devon>Use Dan
>>37785093Are you sure about that? Because I actually think she sorta is. She's clearly not willing to help out of the goodness of her heart or anything like that.
>>37785093She's involved in a large criminal organization at the highest levels.We can't even really trust her to keep her word even if she wins.At least this way Kat comes out with a clear conscience.
>>37785153> Use Dan
>>37785153Quote only is a huge pain. One mans opinion anyway. I trust you to make executive decisions. You have before. Your game your rules.
I really don't understand why you guys are votimg for Dan. Resistance doesn't matter a whole lot when you consider it could (and, let's face it, probably does) have Brick Break. So aside from Parafusion, what are you guys thinking when you cast these votes?
>>37785267There's the problem - you're assuming they're actually thinking.
>>37785153I don't think there's anything wrong with the system, quote only is better than a huge shitstorm
>>37785267I'm thinking Devon is a bad first choice, and Dan was sadly the only other option.
>>37785153I don't think you should change the voting system, this has worked very well so far.
>>37785237>>37785257Sorry, I can't use these
>>37785267Abomasnow is a heavy hitter and it's bound to be far more powerful than our pokemon, and Devon isn't the type to get pounded on. Brick break is super effective against him too, and with Dan we can avoid the possible earthquake with magnet rise.
>>37785327Whoops, thought I erased that space.
>>37785267If Devon get's taken out right away we're in serious trouble, not to mention that Devon would have even less chance against Brick Break.
>>37785175>>37785185>>37785187>>37785194>>37785195>>377852256 for Dan>>37785164>>37785189>>37785192>>37785214>>37785224>>37785232>>377852727 for DevonWriting!
>>37785403Well now I feel down right stupid for messing my vote up.
Yeah we need Devons mega for her stronger pokemon.
>>37785403Fuck it, this is just going poorly. Going to bed before I get pissed, try not to lose this guys.
You try to rise above the intensity. It’s hard not to psyche yourself out. Dan or Devon, it’s hard to choose. They’ve both pulled off a lot of amazing wins.You make a choice. Your first Pokemon with your strongest trump card. “Devon! Let’s do this!”Emma’s hair whips from the wind and she grins. “Well, you are taking this seriously, that’s good. I can feel your fighting spirit already!”You try to put on a confident expression. You can do this>Mega-evolve and Flamethrower! Take the offensive!>Mega-evolve and Sunny Day! Take the environmental advantage!>Hold back, don’t mega-evolve, and react to whatever she does.>Mega-evolve and Bite. Get in Abomasnow’s face and keep the pressure on!>Something else
>>37785466But mega evolving isn't reliable yet
>>37785538>Mega-evolve and Flamethrower! Take the offensive!Get the flame as close to Emma as we can as well, just to make a point.
>>37785538Use Sunny day and don't mega.
>>37785538Just start off with Sunny Day
>>37785538>Mega-evolve and Sunny Day! Take the environmental advantage!
>>37785538> Sunny day, with no Mega.
>>37785538>>Mega-evolve and Sunny Day! Take the environmental advantage!
>>37785538>Sunny Day and no mega.
>>37785538>Sunny Day! Take the environmental advantage!Don't mega just yet though, save it for later.
>>37785538Just use sunny day for now.
>>37785538>Mega-evolve and Flamethrower! Take the offensive!
>>37785538>Sunny Day! Take the environmental advantage!Hold back our trump card for one turn, at least.
>>37785538mega evolve i dont care what else.
>>37785538>Mega-evolve and Flamethrower! Take the offensive!Can't afford to take a hit or let her set up.
>>37785566Please stop that.
>>37785538>>Mega-evolve and Flamethrower! Take the offensive!SHATTER IT
"Devon! Sunny Day!" You decide to hold off on mega evolution. It's still tricky. You'll keep it in your back pocket for now.Devon quickly changes the weather from a hailstorm to a bright, hot day. The heat pounds down."A wise opening move. Abomasnow, Safeguard!"A protective sphere covers her Pokemon. You rack your brain to remember that move. Have you seen it before? It protects her from something, but what was it again? You haven't been studying moves in a long time>Get in Abomasnow's face with Bite!>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!>Pelt it with Ember from a distance, test her defenses>Will-O-Wisp, give her a burn!>Mega-evolve!>Something else

>>37785837>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!
>>37785837>>Mega-evolve!SHIt>>37785854safeguard prevents status effects.
>>37785837>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!Burn that fucker alive, not like we can status it anyway.
>Pelt it with Ember from a distance, test her defenses
>>37785837>>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!
>>37785837>>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!Damnit she knows our tactics
>>37785837>Mega-evolve!>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!
>>37785837>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!She's already setting up, don't give her any more opportunities.
>>37785837>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!>Mega-evolve!
>>37785837>Dig in and flamethrowerIn case it needs saying>Don't mega
>>37785917Ice elite 4 members use safeguard a lot if I recall. I think it helps because if you're playing a defensive stall, you don't want to get poisoned and out-stalled or whatever.
>>37785917She was working with Hornbeam, of course she knows our tactics. We just have to play against type to catch her off-guard.
>>37785837>>Mega-evolve!>>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!
>>37785837>Dig in and give it a powerful Flamethrower!No mega just yet.
>>37786128Newfag please.There's a 5-minute cooldown on duplicate posts.
>>37786128Just got back from the grocery store. Calm your tits.
>>37786128Three of those were identical and within five minutes, one of which was me.
What I want to know is why you morons are voting to mega already when we don't need the power yet and it puts strain on both us and Devon.
We should teach Solar Beam to devon next.After we get his Mega down of course.Then we teach him Hyper Beam.Then maybe Overheat.
>>37786245Given how strong this thing is, and if it has brick break, we won't last long enough to draw it out if we don't pour on the hurt as much as possible early.Sunny day + Mega flamethrower + 4x type advantage is pretty much all we can hope to do to finish this before Abomasnow starts wailing on us *hard*.
>>37786245What I want to know is why you're being such a cunt.
>>37786245We don't know if we can take out the Abomasnow without taking a hit otherwise.
>>37786245They're scared we're about to get 1 shot
"Flamethrower! Hit her hard!" Devon digs in his heels and throws a powerful stream of fire at his opponent."Solarbeam!" Emma counters.The beams collide, creating an explosion in the middle. Devon pours an intense amount of effort into it while Abomasnow only gives it a little push. Devon manages to push it hard and his Flamethrower nearly pushes Solarbeam all the way back, but they both start to run out of power out before it touches. At least Abomasnow had to struggle towards the end. You feel Devon's fighting presence. Come on! Mega-evolve!"He's pretty strong," Emma compliments as she checks her nails. She's toying with you!You can feel your Houndoom's intense presence. You guess he wasn't quite ready. You're sure you can push him all the way to mega-evolve now.The Solarbeam and Flamethrower evaporate.>Again! This time mega evolve!>Rapid-fire Ember. She can't stop them all>Get in it's face! Bite and flinch!>Dark Pulse! That might flinch it!
>>37786332Sun plus a 4x weakness is plenty of power, no way in hell Abomasnow isn't gonna fry like an egg as it is, going mega is just above and beyond.
>>37786396>>Again! This time mega evolve!We gotta now
>>37786396>Again! This time mega evolve!
>>37786396>>Again! This time mega evolve!
>>37786396>Again! This time mega evolve!Huh. My bad, guess she's tougher than I thought. MOAR POWAH it is then!
>>37786396>>>Again! This time mega evolve!
>>37786396>Rapid-fire ember. She can't stop them all
>>37786447She's Elite 4. Her default setting is "Tougher than you thought."
>>37786447She's in the Elite Four, what did you expect?
>>37786396>Again! This time mega evolve!inb4 no effect
>>37786396>Rapid-fire ember.> Don't waste our only trump card in the first goddamn fight because people are idiots.
>>37786396>Rapid-fire Ember. She can't stop them allLet's try using our speed to our advantage and try and melt some of the ice to get Abomasnow off balance.
>>37786525If devon loses the first fight we won't get another chance.
>>37786576Which is why we shouldn't have brought him in first. People are just assuming mega evolution will be a big i win button for us.Honestly I don't want to use it in this fight, since I don't trust her or geno and don't want either of them to know we can do it.
>>37786646Yeah. Personally I'd prefer we try and use our flamethrower a bit more before we just go for broke.
>>37786646I agree that we shouldn't have sent out Devon first, but switching out now seems like a bad idea, and we need to win this.
>>37786646Word spreads pretty fast, now that gym leaders know we can do it I doubt we would have been able to keep it a secret for long.
>>37786646210 Sp Atk right now. Plus STAB. Plus 4x weakness.If we dont 1 shot it then we lose no matter what
>>37786709Is there any stigma to constantly switching pokemon to upset opponent type attacks? Because that doesn't sound like an awful strategy even if it is cheesed to hell.
>>37786709It's a 1v1. We can't switch.
>>37786734Two gym leaders know. One is our friend, and anti social, and the other is creepy ghost lady, who I'm pretty sure would get a kick out of trolling her fellows.
>>37786761That's how actual competitive pokemon battling works. Lots of switching out of bad matchups to checks and counters.
>>37786813And that's why Nintendo invented Stealth Rock.
You're not sure if you're blown away by how powerful it has to be to negate a Fire move with a Grass type move in this heat, or if you're happy you know you can make it struggle."Devon! Again! This time go all out." You know he knows what you mean. You don't want to announce. You need this to be a surprise.Devon digs in hard and fires away. Her Abomasnow let's another Solarbeam loose to stop it."I'm disappointed. Trying the same thing won't give a different result. My Pokemon can last all day and you'll get-"She stops as Devon glows with power. Your head goes light as he explodes into a Mega Houndoom!"What?"The flames rip through the Solarbeam like it's fuel and strikes Abomasnow head on! It goes flying back as Devon slowly walks forward, pressing the attack."Protect! Quickly!"Emma's Pokemon summons an unbreakable shield that keeps the flames from touching her. It looks severely hurt though."Simply amazing," Emma says as she looks on. "But I wonder how long you can last?"You're sweating bullets and your head spins. Without a bridge of some sort, this is even harder than before. You don't know how long you can stay on your feet. You see Devon take a small amount of fatigue too. His ability must be Solar Power now. His special attack is increased under the sun, but at the cost of some of his health over time.Emma smirks. "I have you now!" She whistles. You see her Abomasnow purse it's lips as the Protect begins to fade. It must be doing a sound based move!>Get far away and try to use Roar to cancel out the sound!>Flamethrower once again, all or nothing!>Dark Pulse and Bite! You have to flinch it!>Take a minute to rest, get used to this feeling before pushing.>Something else
>>37786968>Dark Pulse and Bite! You have to flinch it!
>>37786968>Dark PulseI bet it's grasswhistle
>>37786968>Flamethrower once again, all or nothing!Do or die time.Does anyone recall if Safeguard protects against flinching?
>>37786968I'm gonna bet on Perish Song, since she's a defensive specialist.>Dark Pulse and Bite! You have to flinch it!
>>37786968>>Dark Pulse and Bite! You have to flinch it!
>>37786968>Flamethrower once again, all or nothing!
>>37786968>>Dark Pulse and Bite! You have to flinch it!BLITZKRIEG OFFENSIVE
>>37786968>Flamethrower once again, all or nothing!Abomasnow is slow.
>>37786968>Dark Pulse and Bite! You have to flinch it!RIP AND TEAR
>>37787133I'm not sure. That's why I asked...
>>37786968>Dark pulse and biteJust want to say, that for how frustrating this night has been, I'm still glad you're running Gobble.
>>37787035I don't think so.
A wave of dizziness passes over you, but you shake it off."Dark Pulse and Bite! Don't give it a chance!" Devon rushes forward, firing a Dark Pulse that land's as soon as Protect goes down. Abomasnow flinches! Emma flinches in sympathy."Yes! That's it! Bite!" Devon closes the distance and chomps down hard. Abomasnow tries to shake it off. Damn! He didn't flinch this time!"Again! Grass Whistle!" Emma shouts. She's no longer playing around.A piercing whistle echoes through the air. Devon's fierce attack comes to a slow halt as he begins to drift off.You wipe the sweat from your brow as your knees nearly buckle. You can't hold this much longer and now Devon is asleep.Emma has her cool composure back. "Synthesis."No! No no no! Her Pokemon absorbs the bright sunlight, recovering almost all of the health it's lost. You didn't even know it could learn that! Without Early Bird, Devon won't wake up any time soon!"I'm sorry Kat. It was an impressive effort. I can see you really tried your best."You fight to keep conscious. You feel so drowsy. With mega evolution, you can almost sense what Devon feels. It brings you closer together, but makes it hard to think straight.Your eyes flicker."Let's finish this, Abomasnow.">Try to push Devon to wake up and attack. Come on!>Call the match, she won. Devon doesn't need to take that hit>Let your mind feel the blow for him>Something else
>>37787584>Unevolve and use Counter
>>37787584> Try to push Devon to wake up and attack!
>>37787584>Try to push Devon to wake up and attack. Come on!
>>37787614Holy fuck this!
>>37787584>Try to push Devon to wake up and attack. Come on!We need to win this.
>>37787584just do >>37787614
>>37787584>Let your mind feel the blow for himThis sounds like some anime bullshit, but with the way Gobble seems to be handling mega evolution I think it could actually work.
>>37787584>>37787614Unevolving on command might be hard, but if we can...
>>37787710That's assuming Abomasnow is even using a physical attack, not worth the risk, and probably wouldn't work anyways.
>>37787614She hasn't used any physical attacks so far, so that would probably get devon even more hurt.
>>37787766>>37787743Everyone was all worried about Brick Break a second ago
>>37787614Stay cool and do this.
>>37787790That doesn't mean she'll necessarily use it.
>>37787790Which was just an assumption based soley on the fact that he is weak to it. That clearly isn't the way her Abomasnow is built.It's built to be defensive, and try to trick you into using Sunny Day for the Solar Beam and Synthesis, which we fell for perfectly.
As much as Unevolve/Counter feels clever, It's a huge gamble. If we call it wrong, we lose where we could have attacked to stay in the fight.Just pointing it out.
>>37787614Unevolving isn't magicaly going to make Devon wake up.
>>37787766Might be our best bet anyway, and Devon isn't the kind to like just giving up.>>37787584>>37787614Let's try it.
>>37787853If it doesn't work, then we can't just sit there and take a hit anyway.
>>37787856His ability is Early Bird and she used a turn
We really need crunch and fire fang
Tears well up in your eyes. You can't fail now. Come on Devon! Wake up! You can't hold this any longer!"I don't normally attack head on, but there's no point in dragging this out. Abomasnow, Brick Break!"Wait, that's it! You stop trying to keep him mega-evolved. Instead, you let it go. The blackness stops encroaching around your vision. Wake up!Abomasnow's arms shine as Devon de-evolves and stirs. Yes, Early Bird is kicking in."It's too late," Emma shouts.It's never too late. "Counter!"Devon's eyes open as the devastating blow crashes into him, but he doesn't faint. He strikes back at double the power, blowing Abomasnow away! It goes crashing back, laying at Emma's feet.Yes! You did it!Abomasnow stirs up. It looks in terrible condition, but it's not giving up yet. It wobbles but takes a fighting stance.No. Damnit! You and Devon barely have anything left! "Devon-""Wait," Emma says as she puts a hand on her Pokemon. "The deal was that you'd best me, and I'd say you've done just that. Let's call it, shall we?">As long as she'll keep her promise, that's fine by you>No way! You can win this! Press on!>You don't need her pity.

>>37788488Three way pokemon battle?
So with 5 Badges under our belt the League is just around the corner. What do you guys hope to see when we get there?I'd like to see some of the trainers we've run into, but not necessarily in a fight.I'm also hoping there will be some time inbetween getting our 8th Badge and the start of the tournament. Maybe a month or two where we can leave the party and go out on our own to train.
>>37788216>>>As long as she'll keep her promise, that's fine by you
"So does that mean you'll help Robin?" Your voice shakes a little as you recover."Of course. To the best of my ability."You sigh with relief. "Great. But next time I beat you it's gonna be for me."She grins. "I'm looking forward to it."Your friends come crowding in. You're lost in a sea of hugs and congratulations."And here I was thinking you were being a prideful idiot," Clair says."I want to be you when I grow up," Jeanine jokes.Robin gives you a shy peck on the cheek."Are you okay?" Vance holds your forehead."Fine," you say weakly as you hug Devon. He licks your face. "Way to go Dev."Emma retrieves her Pokemon and stands before you. "Come on. I have an office at my place with some imaging equipment. Let's see what we can do, Robin."Robin smiles and helps you up. You did it! You actually did it!You and your friends all make their way to Emma's place. It's nice and cool. Emma goes into the back room and comes back out shortly after. "It's warming up. Please, help yourselves to anything in the fridge."Clair takes a beer and throws her feet up on the couch. "Come on Emma, admit it, Kat won the match and beat your sick game." Clair must still be disillusioned about the League being corrupt.>Ask Emma if she would have helped anyway>Tell Clair to let it go. You don't care>Ask her early opinion on options for Robin's eye>Ask what she knows about mega-evolution>Something else

>>37788668>>Ask Emma if she would have helped anyway>>Tell Clair to let it go. You don't careCurious
>>37788777It shows concern and hope. Some Kat is clinging too.
>>37788810Wrong, what it shows is desperation and obsession. Which is like the opposite of what I thought we've been going for recently.
>>37788668>>Ask her early opinion on options for Robin's eye>Ask Emma if she would have helped anyway
>>37788908Not 24/7 FIX IT FIX IT I'LL FIX IT FIX IT HAHAHAH EVERYTHING IS FIIIINE!But as we're walking towards what could help Robin's eye be healed? Yeah.
>>37788567I want to get our Porygon-Z out of the Pokedex before then. Maybe in our final showdown with Hornbeam.>Back against the wall and pokeballs out of reach>Hornbeam's Magnezone charging for it's final attack>Suddenly Pokedex shoots beam to block attack>Porygon-Z there in all its glory with the Pokedex saying it's actual entryIt'd be neat if it knew all the attacks we've looked up on the dex to teach our other pokemon.
>>37788949>>37788999Actually, when we could just wait a minute or two for an informed answer yeah, it kind of smacks of desperation and obsession. I'd give you "impatience and pushiness" at best.
>>37788908She's literally about to help us with Robin's eye.How is asking about her opinion on what she can actually do obsessive in anyway?
>>37788668>Ask Emma if she would have helped anywayI need to know what kinda person she really is.
>>37789082She might just lie.
>>37789037>Porygon-Zmy monies still on a Rotom, it only possesses older tech and out 'dex is pretty damn old. plus it got into the older computer system at Vance's parents gym at one point
>>37789112It got into the other's pokedexs too
>>37789108True. But thats only an issue if in trying to figure out if shes a good person. If she /does/ say no, we instantly have her pegged as a stone cold nigga.
>>37789129>>37789112Rotom would be taking over appliances and shit, not pokedexes and computers.
>>37789148She could still be lying.
>>37789129I dunno. Not the anon youre replying to here, but the quirks and joking nature of the pokedex lead me to believe rotom. I think porygons, being rather crude artificial constructs, probably have personallities closer to zappy dans. A spooky ghost, on the other hand..
>>37789202Why would she lie about being heartless? Nigga this aint triple agent doublecross cold war quest.Which would be amazing. Someone run that.
"Clair, it's alright." You don't want her to make Emma mad when she's already agreed to help.Emma smirks. "Maybe, maybe not. You're not the only one with that trick up their sleeve.""You mean mega-evolution?"She smiles. "The champion rolled through us like nothing. Since then, Geno's been pushing us hard to train so that doesn't happen again.""So I guess you know a lot about it, huh?"Emma drinks her own beer. "I didn't say that. But I am impressed. You and your Pokemon must be very in sync."You guess she won't be much help there for now. "What do you think about Robin's eye?"She pulls out a hand for Robin. "You're really eager." She leads Robin to the back room. "I don't know what I can do, but my best guess is cosmetic.""Would you have helped anyway? Even if you clobbered me?"She smiles. "Yes, of course. I'm sorry to have put you on the spot like that, but we wanted to see how you operated under pressure. I'm not a monster."You and your friends wait as Robin and Emma vanish behind the office door. You wait and wait and wait. Eventually, they both come back out. "So it's alright if I discuss it openly? You have a right to privacy."Robin nods. "It's fine."(continued)
>>37789250I don't know, but it's a possibility.
>>37789285"Alright then. I'll lay it out. There are two options I can see. One is cosmetic surgery. I can make it look normal, but there might be some light scarring around here and here." She highlights around Robin's eyeball."What's the other option?" Vance asks for you."Cybernetics. Prosapia has a cybernetic solution, but it's not subtle. That being said, she'd have full eyesight." She shows a picture of a person with an obvious robotic eye. "Better than full, actually."Clair looks it over. "Isn't there one that doesn't stick out like that?"Emma sits. "It's not really something Prosapia has a lot of research in I'm afraid. Devon Corp has a much more advanced version, but it's not available to the public yet. You'd have to have some sort of in with them, and a lot of money."Robin thinks hard. She has no idea what to do.>We'll get one from Devon Corp, you'll find a way>Cosmetic surgery is the best idea>Prosapia's model is available and has great features, she should go with that>You'll find a Pokemon that can help. Emma can owe you a different favor>Something elseLast vote for tonight
>>37789209I can see it being pretty dubious
>>37789369>Cosmetic surgery is the best idea
>>37789369>Ask Robin what she thinks? >Maybe You'll find a Pokemon that can help. Emma can owe you a different favor
>>37789369Have we had any dealings with devon yet? I cant remember.
>>37789369>>We'll get one from Devon Corp, you'll find a way>>Something elseActually, I was approached by a Devon Corp rep a while back who offered me a sponsorship when I had 6 badges. Maybe I can try and get one
>>37789369>We'll get one from Devon Corp, you'll find a way
>>37789369>Something elseWe can't make this decision for Robin, but we can sure as hell help with whatever decision she makes.
>>37789369We need Robin to approach Devon and propose a sponsorship- their advanced prosthetic eye technology can be shown off on a top tier trainer.
>>37789369Let Robin make the choice.Mention we might be able to get something from Devon corp
>>37789369Having switched from glasses to lasik, I must say having full vision is a wonderful thing. That said I say it's time to get our sponsorship deal with Devon to fund the prosthesis. It's entirely up to Robin of course, but we have our badges and a connection to do it.
>>37789424oh shit, I completely forgot about that. he did give us his card if i remember right
>>37789369>Cosmetic surgery is the best ideaI don't know how she'd feel about a telescope poking out of her head
>>37789415A representative tried to get you to promote their products. He was turned down, but you kept his number.
>>37789369>Let Robin decideWe can't choose this for her. It's her eye.
>>37789473>>37789482ThisIt has to be Robin's choice.
>>37789481>He was turned down, but you kept his number.pretty sure we didn't turn it down, he just didn't offer a contract til we had six badges
>>37789369>>Something elseGive Robin some time to think about it. If Emma is willing to wait.
>>37789481Alright and there's our contact.We give this guy a call and start negotiating. We can really play ourself up.
>>37789369>Something elseAsk Robin what she wants. We can try to get one from Devon Corp, if she's okay with that. We have time to think.
>>37789165Another couple of points for Porygon over Rotom.Porygon dex exntry>Porygon is capable of reverting itself entirely back to program data and entering cyberspace.For instance, pokedexes and computers.Porygon2 dex entry>The man-made Pokémon has been endowed with artificial intelligence that enables it to learn new gestures and emotions on its own.Wouldn't be a stretch to assume he could learn human language as well.Porygon-Z dex entry>Additional software was installed to make it a better Pokémon. It began acting oddly, however.Taking over pokedexes and being a sarcastic dick is pretty odd.Rotom dex entry>motors>electronic devices>wreak havocPokedexes probably don't have motors, and being sarcastic doesn't really qualify as wreaking havoc.
>>37789524[Right, sorry. I'm having a brainfart of my own.]
>>37789369Let Robin decide but let her know that we wont judge her for wanting the best, etc etc
>>37789369>Mention knowing someone from Devon Corp>let Robin decide>if she doesn't take Emma's offer then ask for something else
>>37789369>You'd have to have some sort of in with them, and a lot of moneyFor instance, a sponsorship from them, which we now qualify for if I'm not mistaken.
>>37789369>Ask if she can get it in red-glowing-terminator color.
>>37789602all fair points, still doesn't mean is not a Rotom but fair points
If Devon is rivals with Prosapia, and Prosapia are involved in this stupid Elite Four-Team Imperium nonsense, that's all the reason we need to support them, to be honest.
>>37789662>Last vote for tonightOne more badge IIRC.That said besting one of the Elite 4 in a 1v1 is gotta be worth something.
>>37789611>>37789524Forgot my apology butt
>>377896626 badges, one more to go>>37789702>that's all the reason we need to support themuntil we find out Hornbeam runs Devon Corp
>>37789602Rotom are known to play pranks, and doesnt one in the anime mess with the telescreen phone things?Also, "Its programming was modified to enable work in alien dimensions." Sounds more like yog-sothoth weird than pokedick jokes weird.But really the whole argument is moot till we get the damned thing out of there.
>>37789716thanks, its not the same without the apology butt
>>37789764That is an exceptional apology butt
>>37789736Yeah, pranks like chasing people with an electric fan, or a lawn mower. Or shutting people inside of refrigerators, ovens or washing machines.I really don't think a Rotom would be capable of human speech either, a Porygon is much more likely to be able to learn that.
Thanks for coming everybody! Next thread is either tomorrow or Tuesday. I have a lot of short-notice stuff on my plate, so I can't say for sure. In the middle of a move and have to coordinate a lot.
>>37789927Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>37789927Will we call the agent up to see if we can arange something or just ask if he can hook us up with the tech at least?
