>>40247337Oh boy, pokemans!Thanks for the lewdbin gobble!
You prepare to battle Meloetta. She seems to want to be caught just like any of your other Pokemon. In your downtime you’ve learned that catching a Pokemon is as much a ritual as anything else. You guess that’s why Pokemon that are knocked entirely out tend to be less trusting and reliable than ones that are caught the “right” way.“Alright Devon, come on out!”You throw out your first and most trained Pokemon, Devon and try to ignore the gathering crowd. It seems that a few people spotted you, and now that you’re fighting a legendary people are coming to check it out.Meloetta takes a fighting stance. You’ve seen first hand how strong she is when she’s not really trying. You also remember your last fight against a legendary>Roar, turn the battle into a chase.>Ember, test her defences from a distance>Flamethrower, start strong!>Dark Pulse, go for the super effective move!>Counter, she’ll probably try Wake-Up Slap>Bite, rush her with a super effective move>Thunder Fang, rush her with a chance to paralyze>Sunny Day, set the stage>Solar Beam, charge and show her the benefits of your training>Something elseAnd>Mega-evolve>Don’t go mega[Don't be afraid to try tricks or add in flair/addendum]

>>40247543Yeah sure, I can support this.
>>40247478>>40247543Said what I wanted.
>>40247543[Oh yeah. Kroustou would probably murder someone if they blocked the shot. Friends are watching from the sidelines too]
>>40247543I like it
>>40247543Speaking of setting the stage, the sunny day as a start off should make for a pretty impressive opener for the cameras, and probably draw some more people in.
Rolled 81 (1d100)[Best of three 1d100s, please. I know Sunny Day isn't a damaging move and doesn't have an accuracy rating, but we decided to always roll anyway. Consider it a roll for dramatic/extra/whatever effect]

You flourish dramatically. You might as well, with the camera and Meloetta and everyone else probably wanting a show. “Devon! Sunny Day!”>94He springs into action, summoning a harsh, bright light. You still have no idea how that works, but you can’t argue with results. It shines brilliantly, countering the natural overcast! Devon is on his A game today.The crowd grows.Meloetta does her own flourish. You can see the light shining in her eye. She does a quick spin and uses Sing!>81Devon’s ears twitch. He growls and barks, but slowly loses energy and sinks onto the ground. His eyes close and he rests his head on his paws.Awww. He looks like a puppy again.He bares his teeth and snaps suddenly, but then goes back down again. This time he’s staying asleep.You remember that his ability is Early Bird. He won’t be out long.>Switch out. (Specify)Or you could use a move when he wakes up.

The crowd looks a little disappointed. They were expecting an epic battle, but Devon has fallen asleep.“Well done, Meloetta!” You compliment her. Both because you don’t want to look worried in front of the crowd, and because you’re trying to stall. “But it’s not over yet! Not even close!”Come on! Wake up, Devon!Meloetta floats over to him, backwards. She’s waving to the increasingly large crowd. The bright shining sun slowing her down a little.“Counter!” You say to Devon, hoping it gets through. “Counter, Devon!”He bares his teeth, but he’s still asleep. Meloetta, who was waving to the crowd, looks a little concerned about her safety and decides to strike now.SLAP! She hits him hard, knocking him up. She didn’t look like she put a lot of effort into it, but it nearly lifts him off the ground.And he comes down on her hard, rolling and pulling her into a spin that ends with her being thrown into the ground!The crowd cheers wildly!Devon looks seriously hurt. His legs shake then give out for a second. He catches himself and corrects his posture though.Meloetta looks roughed up as she slowly rises, but nowhere near as bad as Devon. She really is a legendary Pokemon!>Press on! Devon still has fight in him!>Switch Devon out!>Pokeball, go!>Great ball, go!>State-of-the-art expensive custom Pokeball, go!

>>40248825>Switch Devon out!"Way to soften her up, Devon!"
>>40248859Mega evolution doesn't fix being seriously messed up hit pointwise. >>40248825>Switch Devon out!Bring in Zappy Dan
>>40247959In brightest day in blackest night no pokemon escapes my sightLet those who worship smogon's mightBeware my power: OU's might
>>40248825I forget, can we not apply items mid-battle?
>>40248962I applied items most delicately to your mother this past evening.
>>40248825>Switch Devon out!It seems kind of cheap to do this, but she is a Legendary. Maybe we could bring in Raistlin for resistance against attacks, and Devon's Sunny Day would make Raistlin's Hidden Power more effective?
>>40248962[You can, but not legally against trainers. Meloetta is technically a wild Pokemon, so it's not actually against any rules.]
>>40248962ITEMS ARE FOR THE WEAK
>>40249027still kindof a bitch move though, bit disrespectful.
>>40249051Isn't bringing in multiple pokemon against a solo opponent also a bitch move?
>>40249184we arent though?
>>40249184Things no one would say if this was Regirock.She's stronger than that guy by the way.
>>40249204Yeah we are?
>>40249290...we're switching out, not bringing in another, have you never played pokemon?
“Are you alright?”Devon growls in affirmation. That’s not really saying much though. He’s probably keep going no matter what. You watch his legs again. He’s unsure of his balance.Meloetta, who was working the crowd, turns to fight again. Her attitude is different now. She’s taking this seriously. While before she worked the crowd and didn’t pay Devon that much mind, now she’s working the crowd by ready to leap into action and fight.You get the feeling she doesn’t fight that often though. She’s really strong, but not too disciplined. If you catch her, you could really shape her up.She squints in the sunlight and prepares to end this.You can’t let him take another hit.“Devon, return!” You summon him back. While he did soften her up, he was probably your best match up against Meloetta. The others are going to have an even harder time against her. It's not really fair how strong she is without any apparent training, but you suppose that's why you only very rarely hear about trainers fighting legendary Pokemon in the first place, let alone actually catching one. “You did a great job. I’m proud of you.”You reach for your next Pokeball. “Go...”>Nibbles (Tyrantrum)>Raistlin (Alakazam)>Vlad (Crobat)>Leviathan (Gyarados)>Zappy Dan (Magnezone)

>>40249418If we parafusion her we should be fine.
>>40249343Why didn't we bring in Trunks?
>>40249343>>Zappy Dan (Magnezone)
You can feel the camera and crowd watching you. They start to quiet down, adding to the pressure.But you’re not afraid of crowds. You’re afraid of never being seen. All these eyes on you tell you that you’re alive. You’re someone. People see you and don’t pretend they don’t. You’re not just someone else's problem.You grab the Pokeball and pose. This isn’t about you today. It’s about Meloetta. She’s strong, but she seems to want to prove she can fight hard too. She wants you to challenge her. To beat her.You have the perfect Pokemon to stand up to whatever she can dish out.“Zappy Dan! It’s your turn!” You throw your Pokeball and Dan appears in a flash.His shiny, metal body reflects the harsh sunlight, making him hard to look at directly.Meloetta gets more sun in her eyes!>Thundershock, peck at her, work the crowd>Sonic Boom, try to use it to disrupt her sound based attacks>Thunderwave, paralyze!>Supersonic, confuse!>Thunderbolt, full strength!>Explosion, Get her now while her guard is down>Mirror Shot, a shining blast in the sunlight!>Magnet Rise, defensive maneuvers first!

Meloetta spins and unleashes another Sing. Her voice echoes over the crowd and carries to Dan. It washes over his shiny body to no effect.Dan! “Supersonic!”Dan counters with a horrible sounding screech. It penetrates through the air and causes the crowd to cover their ears. Even Haunter, who’s floating overhead, backs away to protect his directional microphone.Meloetta’s song goes way off key and she reels in confusion. She's unfocused and spins around a lot less gracefully.The crowd cheers for Zappy Dan. He seems like a crowd favorite for some reason. The less he seems to care, the more they seem to like him.>Thundershock, peck at her, work the crowd>Sonic Boom, bypass her defense and do guaranteed damage.>Thunderwave, paralyze!>Thunderbolt, lay on the hurt>Explosion, no way she’ll be able to avoid it>Mirror Shot, a shining blast in the sunlight!>Magnet Rise, get above it all>Swap out to someone else now that you have the opening>Pokeball, go!

[Meloetta is tough, but she messed herself up from that Counter. Probably at 40% if you had to guess, but you're not entirely sure.]
>>40250277so paralyzed that she can't even move
>>40250311Huh, so one more solid hit maybe, or should we risk the deluxe ball now that she's paralyzed and confused?
>>40250277That's the kind of electric shock that freakin' locks them in midair. SHIT
>>40250344one more hit is probably best, maybe with a sonic boom or thundershock.

>>40250277wow, zappy dan is gonna be a goddamn superstar after this.Hey gobble you said you were doing custom meg-evolutions for pokemon that didnt have them right?
>>40250447it was never really decided onpeople were pretty split on for and against it
Reminder that we still need to have a talk with Raistlin about Megaing.
>>40250470you cant tell me dan doesnt deserve one after this shit.Im not saying itll happen right now, im just hoping for the path to be unlocked after this, he was our second pkmn afterall
>>40250470Wasn't really a vote thing, up to gobble.
>>40250491eh, i was never really for it and would rather if we didn't get into all that
>>40250491I don't really find he needs a mega-evolution to be awesome. It represents something completly different, and I still find that one mega-evolution is enough, having more would make it less special.
>>40250524That's dumb. And we're planning to Mega Raistlin anyway
>>40250491Would be pretty niftty but IDK. Maybe a notMega Evolution? Something that brings out some extra power/hidden potential in a Pokemon due to the connection they have with their trainer but is more reserved than a straight up OC Mega?
The ol' Devon/Zappy Dan one-two.
>>40250568so like the PokeAmie boost?
>>40250568Why make another catageorry of evolution?It makes in setting sense for all pokemon to be able to Mega evolve. The only reason they can't in the game is cause Nintendo hasn't gotten around to it yet. Give it another couple games and they will.
>>40250581This picture is amazing. What is this?
>>40250625Clearly this is Zappy Dan at full power.
>>40250625Volcanic Lightning. It's a thing created due to the static electricity produced by the ash.
>69Meloetta manages to work through her confusion and close the distance. She slaps Dan hard, causing him to spin off to the side. His edge digs into the ground, making him do a wide circle around the fighting area. He very nearly spun into the crowd there.Meloetta shows off to the crowd. To be fair, it was a pretty impressive strike.But Dan is rolling back around now. He’s going to slam into her from behind.She leaps into the air gracefully and he zooms underneath her.. She didn’t even look backwards!The crowd goes nuts! She twirls high up. She reaches her apex just as the sunlight starts to fade down“THUNDERWAVE!”>100Dan comes to a sudden, rigid stop and fires a uniform patterned wave of electricity. It nails Meloetta! The crowd goes silent as her frozen, paralyzed body begins to fall out of the air.>Pokeball, go!>Super fancy expensive Pokeball, go!>Thundershock, wear her down>Sonic Boom, show off for the crowd>Thunderbolt, don’t give her a chance to recover>Explosion, you need to go all out!>Mirror Shot, she’s not down yet>Magnet Rise, let Dan shine up high!>Swap to someone else
>>40250625At some point, we're going to mega-evole Devon and Zappy Dan at the same time. Probably to prove that the bond between trainer and pokemon is superior to any of the evil Professor's eugenics programs.That is what that picture is.

>>40250974dammit we shouldve gone with the discodan plan

You throw the expensive, fancy Pokeball at Meloetta, catching her before she hits the ground.The ball falls to the ground and starts shaking.Every single person and Pokemon watching holds their breath. Robin holds her hands together, Vance watches with his mouth open. Even Kroustou takes his eyes off the camera to watch with his own eyes.It wobbles. Then wobbles again. Then wobbles a third time.Meloetta bursts forth. She yells. Not in anger, but in a sort of primal, fighting spirit way. Seeing the passion in her eyes makes you want to fight just as hard. You feel a connection.An Ultraball flies in from the crowd. No!>3It stops in mid air. Meloetta casually glances at it, then it explodes into splinters.The crowd boos the person who threw it. They crowd around him. Well, at least that will stop him from trying again.Meloetta faces Dan again, and rushes towards him. She has an entirely different aura now. She’s totally committed to fighting.

Meloetta rushes at Dan! She uses what looks Close Combat! There’s no flourish and showing off, just a strong attempt to fight for all she’s worth.But the paralyzation is too much. She freeze up at the critical point and slides to the ground in front of Dan.“Sonic Boom!”Dan looks down at her and hits her head on. It’s a fair, solid blow that knocks her back a little. While it’s not the strongest move around, she impressive Special Defense is worthless against it.Meloetta gets back up after wiping the dirt off her face.

You’re becoming a lot less concerned about overdoing it, and more worried that her taking the fight seriously is going to end badly for Dan.“Dan! Mirror Shot! Strong as you can!”Meloetta rushes at Dan again.He expertly aims and fires a shiny, metallic beam that she soldiers through and keeps advancing on him. It's perfectly strong attack, but she's powerful and focused enough not to let it stop her. She strikes out using Close Combat. It’s a different kind of graceful than her flowery movements as she pummels Dan down.He’s got incredible defense, but she doesn’t let up. Her fists and legs just keep coming. She ends it with a strong side kick that pushes him back in your direction.Dan lands to your feet, knocked out.Electricity runs down her body, but she stands disciplined and cool looking, waiting for her next foe.The crowd erupts in a cheer. They seem to just cheer for a good show, and not for you or Meloetta in particular.She looks pretty worn, but she's still a big threat to anyone she faces. Her defenses and speed are down at least. She starts to lose her concentration and waves a little to the crowd. Her vanity is her biggest weakness.You reach for your next Pokemon.>Nibbles (Tyrantrum), he won’t let up on her!>Raistlin (Alakazam), Psychic on Psychic!>Vlad (Crobat), agility and guile will win the day!>Leviathan (Gyarados), raw power and vanity to match even her!>Devon (Houndoom), round 2!>Something else

Well, from your studies and experience with her, she probably doesn’t have a lot of options to deal with Raistlin. At least, that’s your hope.“Raistlin! It’s your turn!”Your powerful Alakazam comes out, fresh and ready. His facial hair makes him look hold and wise.Meloetta puts on another fighting pose. She’s breathing heavily, sizing him up.The crowd cheers again, but this time because of your new Pokemon. Meloetta looks just the tiniest bit jealous and her arms drop slightly.>Teleport (Can be combined with any move he knows well due to heavy practice)>Confusion, mess with her mind>Energy Ball, blast away>Hidden Power Fire, would have been better in the harsh sunlight, but still good>Psychic, his signature move>Focus Blast, show her what fighting moves are really about>Dazzling Gleam (still learning)>Psych up (still learning)>Something else

“Raistlin! Keep moving! Teleport and Confusion!”Raistlin begins teleporting around. Meloetta turns to face him each time, making him teleport again before attacking. He’s psyching her out, getting the best angle.Finally he manages to get behind her. He pelts her with a Confusion from behind, causing her to stumble forward. She turns around only to find him already gone. He peppers her again from the side. He vanishes again.This time, she turns around in the general direction he’ll probably be attack from, and screams a horrible, loud, echoing scream. It blows him back, but he avoided the brunt of it. He quickly recovers and teleports back down to the ground.Meloetta scans over the area and the crowd. They cheered again at Raistlin’s dodging, and it’s throwing her off not being the center of that praise.>Teleport (Can be combined with any move he knows well due to heavy practice)>Confusion, throw a few more quick blasts her way>Energy Ball, a reliable, strong move>Hidden Power Fire, she won’t know what type it is!>Psychic, his signature move>Focus Blast, show her what fighting moves are really about>Dazzling Gleam (still learning)>Psych up (still learning)>Swap Pokemon>Pokeball, go!>Something else

>>40253580We'll hit and probably not die. Should be time for another pokeball.
>>40253551>>40253556>>40253580Seems like Melotta's twigged on Raistlin's Teleport pattern.Should have seen that coming, repeating the same trick right away...
>>40253662Still dont think he'll die, and he's got some fuck awesome Sp att and def.And the only way Moletta will hit us is with a Special attack cause of all the teleporting. He'll be alright.
>>40248556Aria form is the normal Psychic/Normal type she tends to be, built for special attack and defense.Pirouette is a form shift that changes her typing to Normal/Fighting, and pumps her attack, speed, and defense.
“Raistlin! Teleport again. This time use Hidden Power!”You see the understanding on his face showing that he understands why you didn’t mention the type. It’s not like it’s super-effective, but having a move with a mystery type gives her one more thing to worry about.Her lowered Special Defense, paralysis, and damage is really starting to show. Meloetta is a powerful Pokemon, but that’s what gives you the biggest advantage; she doesn’t have much experience actually having to try.Raistlin teleports behind her again, but she moves to attack, predicting where he’ll be. He hits her with Hidden Power Fire. It lands, but it’s not enough to stop her from landing a U-Turn on him, knocking him out of the air and onto his back.Damn, she zeroed in on that quick. The worst part is, Raistlin looked close to avoiding it, but the timing was just a little off.The crowd cheers as she manages to and gracefully on her feet. As soon as she completes her landing though, you see her shift her body weight and slump her shoulders. She’s exhausted. If Raislin was using his incredible Special Attack power on any regular Pokemon, they’d have a much harder time standing.Raistlin very slowly and deliberately pushes himself up. He tries to shake his head and focus, but he’s looking like he’s a strong gust away from falling over. Any hard blow could be serious.>Pokeball! It’s time>Swap Pokemon>Try to push Raistlin to mega-evolve. Do your best to think like him and focus!>Psychic! Unleash the power!>Energy Ball, a reliable, strong move>Teleport and Confusion again. Go for the confuse chance!>Teleport and Hidden Power, again!>>Focus Blast, low accuracy, high power!>Dazzling Gleam (still learning)>Psych up (still learning)
>>40248556In Pirouette form she hates us for our inability to dance and leaves us for someone better.
>>40253811>Pokeball! It’s time
>>40253811>>Pokeball! It’s time

You and Meloetta look over the worked up crowd. If you were battling a normal Pokemon, losing almost three against it would be a humiliating spectacle. But against a legendary like this?Just being given the chance to battle it is impressive.Meloetta’s hair is frayed. Her balance is wobbly. Her confidence looks a little shot as she’s looking so vulnerable in front of the crowd.You see someone in the crowd take out a fancy Pokeball, like the one you had! They’re going to throw it! You reach into your pocket for your own Pokeball, but they draw theirs first.No no no no no!They pulled it out too fast. The trainer loses her grip and drops it on the ground. The crowd shifts and someone steps on it, crushing it under a heavy boot. She looks like she wants either cry or murder someone.Meloetta catches your eye. She sees the Pokeball in your hand. Now’s the time, you can feel it.You throw it. She braces herself to fight it head on. The ball hits her and she vanishes in a flash of light.The crowd once again falls silent as the ball wiggles. Once.Twice.Three times.Click.You feel like fainting! You caught Meloetta! The mass of people rush the field. They leap up and down and a huge wave of them press into you. You just see Meloetta’s ball vanish before people step in your view. She’s going to Professor Fir.And she’s going in a regular Pokeball, just like everyone else on your team. Just like you think she really wanted.[That’s it for tonight! Congrats on catching Meloetta! We’ll do a nickname vote next thread]Kat is going to be obscenely famous after this.
>>40254160Time for Robins new eye.
>>40254160I would think that as a legendary, shed like to keep her name
Thanks for running, Gobblehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTidn2dBYbY
We get to have a Cyborg girlfriend.>>40254183We could call her Molly.
>>40254183too bad, her new name is Fiddlesticks
>>40254183[That'll be an option.]>>40254186Thanks
>>40254160Thank you, Gobble.
>>40254214Simple but I dig it
>>40254160Thank god the dice gods frowned upon catchstealing, though in hindsight fighting a legendary pokemon in a crowded place was kind of risky.
>>40254160Someone better be beating the shit out of that asshole in the crowd.
We have to be careful not to favor her over our other pokemon.
>>40254241both of them
>>40254241You mean both of them?
>>40254254True, but at the same time, don't want to go too far in the other direction and neglect her.
>>40251549>An Ultraball flies in from the crowd. No!I would be so buttmad if this happened.
>>40254160damn we should have taught Vlad Fly so we can escape the crowd
>>40254276>>40254277Yeah. There needs to be blood.
>>40254276>>40254277Seriously. I hope we can vote to find the people who tried that shit next thread and give them a few choice words. To the groin.
>>40254456man fuck that gifI went and watched that whole show because i thought that scene went like that but nope he doesn't go full demon for a bit after getting shot
>>40254160People are fucking ass holes my God."HEY LOOK I'MANA STEAL THAT POKEMON LOL! ITS TECHNICALLY LEGAL!"

>>40254578The Devil Is a Part-Timer
>>40254578Hataraku Maou-Sama, or Devil is a Part Timer. It's about a Demon King who gets shunted from Generic Fantasy Realm #167847 into our world and loses most of his power in the process. So he has to work at a McDonalds ripoff like a regular jagoff to survive. There's some conflict from some people following him to kill him or whatever, but mostly you watch it for Chiho. It was actually pretty enjoyable.Sandwich isn't Soup, capcha. Fuck you.
>>40254611Are they? I think they might just be really rare in this series. Or maybe it varies on a case by case basis? Like I'm PRETTY sure there are multiple Regirocks.
>>40254648But what about a soup sandwich?
>>40254710Nope, confirmed unique.
>>40254160how famous is obscenely famous? Will we be invited to the next pokeverse Oscars?

>>40254772Prime candidate for this regions Tourny.
>>40254772You singlehandedly captured the living embodiment of muse. On Camera.That's how famous you are going to be.
It's a shame we're not undefeated.
>>40254861we only lost once and no one ever has to know about that
>>40254850Is it the first ever legendary catch on camera?>>40254871It'll be in the interviews and we're not gonna lie.
>>40254861Undefeated can also mean we're a coward who only picks the battles we know we can win.Having lost, and being able to lose, implies a willingness to fight at a disadvantage should the situation call for it.>>40254871Didn't we already says we lost in one of the tv interviews already?
>>40254160Holy shit this is awesome. And when is next thread? Tommorow?
