>>40605617Time to poke, man.
Alright, time to d-d-d-duel.
Vernon, the old champion, stands on the other side of the empty lot. He offered to train Robin if you win, but only if he likes her after meeting her. He said he wouldn’t hold you to your offer of giving him your panties if he won.“That’s fair,” you start glancing over the area. “Let’s battle.”Your eyes dart around the field. There’s a small pond in the middle, taking up about a third of the width of the area. It looks maybe 5-6 feet deep in the middle at most, judging by what you can see. There’s also a tall rock formation on your half, to your left. It's night time, and so the place isn't well lit.He nods, spins his hat around, and reaches for a Pokeball.He only has one Pokemon called Poli. You haven’t confirmed what kind it is yet, but a nickname like that is a good hint.You’re unsure of exactly how to gauge him. He’s grungy and unkempt. Of course, you also know that a trainer can’t always been judged by their looks.He’s the former champion, sure, but from what it sounds like, he hasn’t done serious training for a long time.>Throw at the same time as him, act as if you’re equals>Throw after him. he’s the former champion, don’t get cocky>Throw before him. Show how fearless you are>Wait! You had a question before you started (write-in)
>>40605753>Throw at the same time as him, act as if you’re equals
>>40605753>Throw at the same time as him, act as if you’re equalsThis is just a match between two trainers
>>40605753>>Throw at the same time as him, act as if you’re equals
we need to start training our throws like Giovanni in the manga, to the point that we can get a pokemon out and have an attack going before the other trainer can act
>>40605753>Throw before him. Show how fearless you are
>>40605863Perhaps we could get them to set the field on release? like Sunny day or Stealth rock?
>>40605863thatthe double action thingsupersonicboomwe need to practice this shit
>>40605863Hmm, but where will we fit the posing in, anon?
>>40605893that, and teach them to use status effects right after setup. like using Toxic as soon as possible unless we say otherwise, or having Dan use Thunder whenever he sees a Flying or Water pokemon
>>40605917We just do it on the follow through.
You reach for your own Pokeball. You’re going to throw it out at the same time as him.By the look on his face, he seems to read your intentions. He looks impressed by your bravado, but there’s also something to his eyes that tells you he’s still not sure if you’re being foolish.“Alright Poli! Let’s have a fun battle!” He starts to throw.You reach for your own Pokemon>Meloetta, she has the strength to handle anything he has>Nibbles (Tyrantrum), his jaws have a wide variety of coverage>Raistlin (Alakazam), teleport and counter, all day!>Vlad (Crobat), his status and speed power can help even if it’s a bad matchup>Leviathan (Gyarados), own the pond, own the field>Zappy Dan (Magnezone), he probably has a Poliwrath
>>40606104>Meloetta, she has the strength to handle anything he has
>>40606104there's no way in hell it's a poliwrath>Nibbles (Tyrantrum), his jaws have a wide variety of coverageor>Raistlin (Alakazam), teleport and counter, all day!
>>40606104>Leviathan (Gyarados), own the pond, own the field
>>40606104>>Leviathan (Gyarados), own the pond, own the fieldHaven't used her for a long time
>>40606104>Vlad (Crobat), his status and speed power can help even if it’s a bad matchup
>>40606104>>Meloetta, she has the strength to handle anything he hasShe's gonna like this.
>>40606104>Zappy Dan (Magnezone), he probably has a Poliwrath
>>40606104>Vlad (Crobat), his status and speed power can help even if it’s a bad matchupI'm guessing Poliwhirl, I doubt they'd want to stay a Poliwag
We still haven't really had a chance to train with Meloetta yet
on the one hand, I want Meloetta's first fight with us to be against this guyon the other, I'm pretty sure we're going to be fighting a Poliwag, and even if he's extremely powerful, skilled, and sneaky that'll just feel wrong
[Alright, let's Final Destination this. 5 minutes, quote only and only an exact vote counts. Anything that deviates at all won't count.]>levi>mel
I want to have a training montage with meloetta before we battle with her
>>40606356Just wanna say, your vote didn't count.
Let the samefagging commence!
>>40606414you vote does not count friend.
>>40606449God forbid we let Meloetta actually fight instead of exisiting as unused trophy catch.
>>40606550I'm interested in seeing how they want to fight this with Levis tiny moveset, and him resisting every move in it.
>>40606517we need to train with her beforehand, learn the moves she knows, maybe teach her a new one.
>>40606595Bounce all day erry day
>>40606517The main point is that mel doesnt really, have any training. at all. we need to get used to fighting with her.>>40606632this basically>>40606595I'd rather use nibbles or raistlin honestly
>>40606632>we need to train with her beforehandThis would have been training.We already know a lot of her moves, more than enough, hell, Meloetta has more move we know than Levi does.We already fought with her, and this is a perfect opportunity to do so again.
>>40606595Not happy about the vote either, but let's face it, this is the one we actually can afford to lose without any dire consequences.
>>40606595I originally voted Vlad, but supported Levi because he has more experience than Meloetta (we really should give her a name soon)
>>40606647>The main point is that mel doesnt really, have any training. at all.Why wouldn't we use this as training?She doesn't need any more training, we already know she is strong, we already used her in a fight, we already know a lot of her moveset.She is a infinitely better choice than Levi.
>>40606685Thats exactly why Meloetta would have been a good choice.We aren't desperatew to winm this, and this is the one fight where we know he can give Meloetta a good challenge so we can actually try out her limits.Something mere dry training won't do.
>>40606692>>40606659We actually care about thus battle. It's more than just training. Besides, it's insulting to him to basically use him to train our poke instead of being serious against him.
>>40606732>We actually care about thus battle. It's more than just training.Every fight is training.>Besides, it's insulting to him to basically use him to train our poke instead of being serious against him.No, no it isn't. Using a legendary is being serious, its just one we don't have fought with a lot. Its still using a legendary against him, showing we think he can match that.
>all these people not taking the former CHAMP seriously
>>40606685>without any dire consequencesWell>get back to Robin, she's already up>K-Kat, where have you been? I-I was worried.>Just went to scout the town a litte, don't worry, I'm here for you. Wanna cuddle?>Sure! ... K-Kat, you\re not wearing any...>Yeah, the old man got them off me.
>>40606774No one is not taking him serious, you can quit the strawmanning.
>>40606774well there were people who thought he wasn't good enough to train us or Robin because he lost to Robin's mom
We really do need to up all our teams movepoolsFor Levi we should get>Outrage>Dragon Tail>Iron Tail>Trash>Torment
“Levi, come on out!” Her Pokeball sails through the air and she appears in an explosion of light. She roars on her entrance. Looks like she’s itching to get some exercise.At the same time, you see Vernon throwing his Pokemon. It’s a Poliwrath!You see how some people say that trainers and Pokemon can sometimes look alike.“A Gyarados, huh?” He squints, “did you raise it from a Magikarp?”“No,” you tell him, not seeing a reason to lie.“I’m impressed,” he keeps eying levi up and down. “you’ve got guts, I’ll give you that.”Poliwrath fires off several blasts of water high into the air as it steps forward. You lose sight of them. Wow, they went high. It must be pretty strong, just like you’d expect.Let’s see... from what you can see thanks to studying abilities so much, it’s ability is Water Absorb. But there’s something off about it you can’t quite figure out.>Bounce, Flying type moves will be super effective!>Bite, get in close>Dragon Rage, it will bypass any defense>Dragon Dance, get strong first>Go into the pond and try to pull the water out with Waterfall>Use Aqua Tail to smash up the rocks and bat them at Poliwrath>Something else
>>40606774Quite the opposite, I'm laughing at the people who think we will win this.
>>40606810>>Dragon Dance, get strong firstSTRONK
>>40606810>Dragon Dance, get strong first
>>40606810>>Dragon Dance, get strong firstHUGE!
>>40606810He's going to use those blasts to heal himself as they fall, smart.
>>40606810>Go into the pond and try to pull the water out with Waterfall
>>40606810>>Dragon Dance, get strong first
>>40606810>Dragon Rage, it will bypass any defense
We gotta use Aqua tail to bat him away from those blasts when he goes to heal himself.
>>40606926And heal him with Aqua Tail?
If we can get Levi to Mega Evolve she will have Mold Breaker which cancels out Water Absorb
>>40606973If we get Levi to Mega Evolve he will instantly wreck her with STAB super-effective fighting type moves.

>>40607161>>40607205Levi already got Waterfall.
Pumped for this battle tbh
>>40607260So is levi apparently
>>40607260Not looking forward to spamming Bounce with the occasional Bite.
>>40607339Figure out a way to beat his water heals.
>>40607354Bounce between them and him, or try to use our speed to throw him away from them with Bite.Not sure if Dragon Rage is hot enough to vaporize it.
“Dragon Dance! Pump yourself up!”Levi roars at your command and starts her dance right away. Before, she used to be defiant and only resentfully follow a command. Now, she seems to take pride in taking her commands well, eager to show you how powerful she is. In fact, she’s doing it beautifully this time around. It’s almost hypnotic.“Belly Drum, Poli!”The enemy Poliwrath starts pounding on it’s chest hard. You’re very familiar with this move. The user boosts its attack power to extreme levels, but at the cost of half it’s health.Wait! Of course! Those water blasts he fired into the air are to heal Poliwrath right after.Leviathan swings around, giving an extra strong tail flourish to end her Dragon Dance. Using the flat of her tail, she generates a strong gust of wind that throws an incoming water blast away and it lands beside Poliwrath instead of on it.Levi’s eyes glow as she roars once again. She looks like some sort of demon now. It’s almost pumping you up too! You suspect she got more than the usual boost out of that.But Poliwrath can’t be underestimated with a Belly Drum boost.“6 seconds until the next one,” Vernon tells you. That’s right. He shot off more than one. You counted 4, you think.This won’t be easy. Levi doesn’t have a diverse movepool. You’ll need to be creative or lucky to pull this off. Maybe both.Lightning flashes in the distance. It might rain here soon.>Bounce!>Bite, try to take it down before it can hit Levi>Maybe you can try a move she doesn’t know. Something she might instinctively be able to figure out.>Rapid-fire Dragon Rage at the other water blasts>Concentrate everything on dodging.

“Mind Reader!”“Bounce!”Levi leaps into the sky with terrifying speed. It’s so odd to see something so big move even faster than Vlad.Poliwrath’s eye’s glow. Not a fierce, primal glow like Levi’s, but a cold, calculating one.Levi is just about to reach her apex. You need to think fast. Is he really going to try to hit her? Levi moves faster, but you have a feeling Poli might just need a single hit, even though Levi hasn’t taken any damage at all.This is also the perfect time to take out the rest of those water blasts. If you do that though, the Bounce won’t hit as hard.>Have Levi concentrate on taking out the water blasts on the way down>Have Levi put all her power into Bounce>Something elseAlso>Try to mega evolve>Don’t try to mega evolve

>>40608295shit, forgot gyarados changes to dragon when evolving. changing my vote
>>40608295Maybe we wanted to mega evolve after Bounce. Did you ever think of that smartass, huh???:\
>>40608317it changes to Water/Dark so if they use a fighting move we get hit hard but without being Mega'd they might not as we currently resist them
>>40608317To dark, not dragon. Dragon would make more sense than the dark shrimp, though.
>>40608295I also like how the want to turn into a Dark type and lose Flying against a Fighting-type.Thats some next-level tactics right there.
Okay yeah I forgot he changes types when mega evolved. Changing my vote then.
[We'll do two Final Destination votes. First for trying to mega evolve, then another how to use Bounce.Remember, only exact matches count.]Time freezes as you try to figure out your best move. You can try to mega-evolve, giving Levi a strong boost all around and maybe allowing her to take a hit from that Poliwrath. If you do though, she loses the extra power from being a Flying type Pokemon using a flying type move. Screwing it up too badly might mess with her concentration. It's a gamble, but is it one you have to take?>mega>don't mega
Since moe seems to be down and I can't look it up, does anyone remember for sure if Kat knows about Meloettas Pirouette form?
>>40608472she knows about it, but meloetta doesnt know the move
[Welp, that clears that up.Now for Bounce.]No. Now isn't the time to try mega-evolving with Levi. You see her come to a complete stop, high in the sky. She's going to come down now, and you need to direct her on what to do. You can have her clear the water and prevent Poliwrath from healing at the expense of power, or try to come down on Poli at full power and take it out before they land.>clear water>full power
>>40608619Do we really think we can end this with one hit?We got STAB and a good boost from Dragon Dance but is that enough?
>>40608654Could Levi block the water after she lands on Poly? He can't heal from the water when Levi is sat on him...
>>40608654If we can't, he might do it. So yeah, we better end it now.
>>40608654and he's at half health. it'll be close

>>40608963Levi is just fucking swole
>>40608963Wait did we never figure out Levis ability?
>>40609245I think it's Intimidate.Pretty standard for a Gyarados.
>>40609245I guess it could be Moixe being as she was from Team Imperium genetic experiments but I don't think anyone ever thought it wasn't Intimidate
The rain comes down with Levi. She’s aiming directly at the Poliwrath, murder in her eyes and unfathomable power all over the rest of her. This is going to be intense.You see Vernon flinch, but just for a second. “It’s too fast! Poli! Switch abilities and Mega Kick!”Poliwrath skin seems to morph almost imperceptibly before your eyes. He didn’t mispeak. It actually changed it’s ability to Swift Swim!Poliwrath leaps into the air, twirling up it’s kick. You know that move is hard to land, but he just used Mind Reader, so it can’t miss!It’s down to speed. Levi is firing down like a rocket. She makes a path through the rain, showing a trail of where she’s been.Both Pokemon collide at an insane speed. There’s huge explosion of water as they connect. You try to look, but the expanding wall of water and wind nearly pushes you back and you instinctively blink.Poliwrath shoots down into the pond, just on the shallow part. He forms a crater on impact. Leviathan straightens out as she comes down to a landing, looking down on the other water Pokemon and confirming her victory. Poliwrath is struggles upwards for a second, but too slowly. The concentrated water blasts fall down, one of them hitting it on the head.Vernon retrieves his Pokemon. He mutters something about a good battle. He’s clearly pretty stunned at the outcome.“Dragon Dance,” he says to himself. “That wasn’t a regular Dragon Dance. She moved too fast, even for Swift Swim.”Levi roars in triumph as the rain starts to beat down big time now. You’re sure the entire neighborhood probably got woken up from that.>Tell him he’s probably just rusty and you got lucky.>You won too easily. He can’t teach Robin anything. Politely get him to not worry about it>Congratulate Vernon on a good match. He looks really shocked>Woah! How the hell did he change abilities? What was that?>Something else

>>40609530>>Congratulate Vernon on a good match. He looks really shocked>>Woah! How the hell did he change abilities? What was that?>Tell Levi how proud we are of her, she just took down a former Champ after all

>>40609680>>40609671Pretty sure he just meant it was a partiuclarly strong Dragon Dance, not a new form of it.
>>40609530>>Congratulate Vernon on a good match. He looks really shocked>>Woah! How the hell did he change abilities? What was that?
We should practice Dragon Dance to perfect it so we can do that all the time.
>>40609680[Well, I just figured it deserved a little bit extra speed and attack from a 100, but I suppose we could use this as a springboard to a unique move with some training. I'm open to ideas, as long as they aren't too unbalanced.]
>>40609763>Double Dragon Dance every matchNothing would stop Levi. Time to train for that mega and then go back to fuck Regirock in the ass.
>>40609772Well, she used that wind blast to knock the water away. Maybe make that standard to let her do some damage whilst dancing.
Off the current topic, and I've probaby been thinking about this for too long, but I have figured out what I want to do with Robin's mom.We fight her for the Championship, beat her to within an inch of defeat. And then, right before we land the final blow, we forfeit the match and walk away.If she asks us why, we tell her she's right. It's a worthless title. And it fits her.
>>40609826The wind blast was just the impact of them hitting.Bounce + Jump kick.
>>40609772awesome. simply awesome.I'll start working on that>>40609826maybe have it turn into aquatail when she learns it. effectively using both moves at the same time.
>>40609772>>40609826Maybe add a possible flinch effect for being so damn stunning
>>40609772Is a move that makes yu faster ND steonger than any other Pokemon I call it steongfast rage alsoo it make.you invincible and you can see th futrue and its used instantly yo cant stop it
>>40609772I would think allowing Dragon Dance to be trained to be more effective is good enough, Dragon Danced is already a amazing move.
>>40609772Perhaps just that: a somewhat higher DC move for an enhanced version with improved speed/atk and a chance to temporarily negate certain environmental bonuses/penalties in our favor?
>>40609838lolMaybe, but only if victory is assured.>>40609856Why would Dragon Dance turn into aqua tail? Better for just having a stronger boost.
>>40609772Dragon Dance Is already pretty good, maybe with enough practice we could combine it with Bounce so Levi does Dragon Dance in the air then comes down with a Dragon Dance boosted Bounce.
>>40609838>we tell her she's right. It's a worthless title. And it fits her.I don't think we hate her that much. And even if we did, it would be disrespecting everything and everyone involved with the League.I admit it would be sweet as fuck, though.
>>40609772speaking of unique moves, I had some ideas.Dan: combine supersonic and sonic boom. shouldnt be impossible with training.Nibbles: He stomps around when using dragon dance right? dragon dance+earthquake.
>>40609772>>40609892Maybe we could have it do less attack boost, but give an equal speed boost. Like a dragon dance/ Agility combo.
>>40609869pretty sure thats called shell smash
>>40609886Yeah, getting more or less the results of this 100 with a 90 or 85+ roll or something.
>>40609869The typos really sold that one 10/10.
>>40609772Call it Leviathan's Dance12 “I will not fail to speak of Leviathan’s limbs, its strength and its graceful form.13 Who can strip off its outer coat? Who can penetrate its double coat of armor[b]?14 Who dares open the doors of its mouth, ringed about with fearsome teeth?15 Its back has[c] rows of shields tightly sealed together;16 each is so close to the next that no air can pass between.17 They are joined fast to one another; they cling together and cannot be parted.18 Its snorting throws out flashes of light; its eyes are like the rays of dawn.19 Flames stream from its mouth; sparks of fire shoot out.20 Smoke pours from its nostrils as from a boiling pot over burning reeds.21 Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth.22 Strength resides in its neck; dismay goes before it.23 The folds of its flesh are tightly joined; they are firm and immovable.24 Its chest is hard as rock, hard as a lower millstone.25 When it rises up, the mighty are terrified; they retreat before its thrashing.26 The sword that reaches it has no effect, nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin.27 Iron it treats like straw and bronze like rotten wood.28 Arrows do not make it flee; slingstones are like chaff to it.29 A club seems to it but a piece of straw; it laughs at the rattling of the lance.30 Its undersides are jagged potsherds, leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge.31 It makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment.32 It leaves a glistening wake behind it; one would think the deep had white hair.33 Nothing on earth is its equal— a creature without fear.34 It looks down on all that are haughty; it is king over all that are proud.”
>>40609892not have it turn into aquatail, but basically ending the dance by using it.
>>40609954>dragon dance+earthquakeYeah, no, combining a great boost with a powerful move is too much. The sound combo is a good idea.
>>40609838i feel like that slightly tarnishes the work of the great pokemasters before us.
>>40609971I barely know any moves since I last played in gen 2 what's so strong about that move?
>>40610039yeah, kinda like a mudslap only it confuses instead of debuffing accuracy. still want magnet rise+mirrorshot=discodan
if anything, the boost should probably be relatively minor. maybe a chance for a flinch? or hell, maybe a chance to activate Intimidate a second time on a high roll. it should definitely be something related to how fuckin spooky gyarados are.
>>40610080You should check serebii, bulbapedia or smogon when participating on this quest, then.>Boosts the user's Attack, Special Attack, and Speed by two stages each and lowers its Defense and Special Defense by one stage each.
>>40610080+2 attack, spec attack and speed, at the cost of a drop to defense and special defense. only a select few pokemon have access to it, but combined with skill link, it turned cloyster from a shitwall to a dragon slaying murder monster
Why not do something like lower the Crit Success from 100 to 95 or 90 or something?We would just have a higher chance of getting a higher boost again
>>40610217To add on to this, maybe the DC could drop by 5-10 with each additional success?
You run around the pond. “That was a good match.” You take his hand and shake it. “T-thanks kid.” He’s starting to get his wits together. “Thanks.”You give him a minute and turn to Levi. “I’m really proud of you. That was amazing!”Levi looks away, uncomfortable with your praise in front of someone new.“Aww, come on, Levi. Don’t be shy.” You can't help but tease her a bitShe looks indignant at the thought that she could possibly be shy. She rears up and again and inhales, preparing to roar even louder. You quickly retrieve her before she can. For all you know, the police could be on the way from all the explosive noise.“Good idea,” Vernon says. “We should probably get out of here. Can I walk you to the Pokemon center?”You nod and you both start making your way back.You can’t hold your question back any more. “How the hell did you change abilities? What was that?”He smiles, just a little. “The result of years of training. It takes a lot out of him, but it’s useful in a pinch. I was hoping it would be my trump card against the champion when I came back into the scene.” He laughs. “Ego aside, I know I could beat the woman that took my title all those years ago. I can’t beat who she is now, but I know that would have been enough. You beating me? Well, I think you might have what it takes.”(continued)
>>40610392“...Really?” You open the doors to the Pokemon center. It’s open 24/7, thankfully.“With the right training and some luck,” he says, handing his Pokemon over to the nurse. “Kat, I know you want me to train Robin, but I think I can do a lot for you too.” He puts a hand up. “Don’t answer now. Just think about it.”Well, you did beat him without taking a hit, but at the same time, you’re sure he was milliseconds away from one-shotting Levi. That ability switch isn’t like anything you’ve seen either.“I’ll think about it,” you tell him. Your options for the next three months keep expanding.“About Robin,” he looks uncertain. “I’ve seen some footage of her battling. I like her style. But I don’t know her well. She’s obviously not like her mother, but I have to ask, what do you think her odds are of doing better than you?>Really good>Not great>You’d say it’s about even>No way you can know for sure>Something else
>>40610445>You’d say it’s about even
>>40610445>No way you can know for sureToo much bias!
>>40610445>You’d say it’s about evenshe's smarter, I'm stronger
>>40610445>>You’d say it’s about even>>40610481basically this yeah.
>>40610481She's Ash. We're Gary.
>>40610445>You’d say it’s about even>No way you can know for sure
>>40610517she cannot ignore our girth
>>40610445>No way you can know for sureYou're too different,Robins way of fighting can't be clearly measured, thats her strength.
>>40610517>implying Ash is smart
>>40610445>Really goodLet's be honest, she'll outsmart the fuck out of us. The shit she pulled in this gym is miles better than anything we've ever done. Our best chance would be to mega and power through her tricks, and she could just Ditto that.
>>40610517Isn't it the other way around?We are the savant while she is the prodigy?
>>40610517i dunno if thats exactly accurate. ash can go full stronk any time he wants. he just doesnt, usually. hes one of those collector fags that has to catch all 600 billion pokemon and train them all equally. that nigga had a first gen tauros. you know how fuckin dank tauros was in gen 1?
>>40610563While Robin is definitly more skilled, we have a lot more to work with.
>>40610563We may not be able to make tricks as well as her, but I think we know her well enough to spot her tricks and defuse them.
>>40610619he's also best friends with literally every legendary pokemon. guy could rule the world if he went evil
>>40610577It's because she doesn't have any badges that we didn't get first.We're also the one with an entourage.We're probably going to beat the Elite 4 and her mom ahead of her, too.And then it'll just be us.
>>40610628Yeah like in the fairy gym, even if we didn't know what specific tricks she was going for, we knew that there was a trick of some kind involved.
>>40610656that's... a good damn point. dammit now I want a story where ash goes full tyrant.
>>40610680and then she'll kick our ass or vice versa. after that, we lewd right on the arena floor, before vanishing off to run a ranch somewhere isolated
>>40610680>We're probably going to beat the Elite 4 and her mom ahead of her, too.We promised her she gets the first shot at her Mom and dad.
>>40610738We can't both win the tournament.
>>40610732theres gonna be so many god damned zubats on our ranch. fuck mang. so many. vlad, why you gotta be such a pimp?
>>40610720I suppose the Sun Stone thing kind of counts. He merges with Mew Two I think? Though it's a benevolent thing and mostly indirect?
“I can’t really say for sure, but if I had to, I’d say we’re about even. She’s smart, I’m stronger.”“I see.” He nods, looking slightly more dignified. “It’s important to be able to measure up people and Pokemon.The nurse calls him over. He pushes himself up. “Well, thanks for the match Kat. I’m going to get some shut-eye. I’m not as young as I used to be.”Meloetta rests on your lap. Her eyes start to close, then she shifts awake with a cute noise.>Wait, chat for a bit. You want to get to know him better if he’s potentially training you or Robin>Study in your hotel room, you won’t be able to sleep tonight anyway>Go out and train in the rain.>Go cuddle Robin and sleep. Tomorrow is a big day>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do that>Something else
You think we should tell this guy pretty much everything we know about Team Imperium both how it was founded and Hornbeam's takeover?Like, I think it was his job to care about this stuff back when he was the Pokemon Champion, so maybe he has some insight on how to deal with all of it?
>>40610802>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thatWe keep our promises.
>>40610802>Go out and train in the rain.>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do that
>>40610814I fully support this. He should be able to help in some way at the very least.
>>40610802>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do that
>>40610802>Oh, he didn't want his consolation prize after all? You're sure you've got a pair of panties here somewhere... He's easy to tease.
>>40610802>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thator if she's too tired>>40610802>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thator if she's too tired:>Go cuddle Robin and sleep. Tomorrow is a big day
>>40610802>>Go out and train in the rain.>>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thatAfter all the shit we saw tonight we need to clear our head and get back to our pokemon.
>>40610802>Go out and train in the rain.
>>40610770doesn't mean she won't beat them first
>>40610802>>Go out and train in the rain.>>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thatWe need to get back to our pokemon. I can't remember when the last time we trained was. Plus it'll be good for Kat's mental state to keep moving forward.
>>40610874...oopsmeant to just post that second part
>>40610802>>Go out and train in the rain.
>>40610802>Set up a time to talk to him laterWe should get to know him better, but not now. Plus, asking about Team Imperium.>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thatIncorporate the rain into the mood of the music.then>Go cuddle Robin and sleep. Tomorrow is a big day
>>40610802>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do thatSee if we can't find a Jazz club or somewhere with an 'open mic night'
>>40610802>>Go out and train in the rain.>>Wait, you still owe Moletta a jam session. Find somewhere you can do that
“See you around, old man,” you help him up. “Thanks for the battle.”He smiles and gives a lazy wave as he walks away into the night.You look down at the legendary Pokemon resting on your lap. “Come on, Meloetta, let’s go make some music.”She stirs awake and makes a happy sound. Both of you head outside into the rain and look for somewhere you can play. It takes awhile, but eventually you come across an empty warehouse. Someone without your...background probably wouldn’t have noticed it, but you have an eye for places like this.There are a few holes in the ceiling where the water gets in, but it at least won’t keep you from playing.Meloetta looks up, waiting for you to take the lead. You put the ancient flute to your lips. You feel like recent events have inspired you somehow.>Practice that song from the ruin scroll>Play something that matches the rain>Play something that reminds you of a sunny day>Play something that feels like a snowstorm>Play a desert tune>Play Devon’s favorite song>Just mess around with Meloetta, not focusing on anything in particular>Something else
>>40611230>>Play something that matches the rainNormally I'd be all over that scroll but this fits the mood waaaay to well.
>>40611230>Practice that song from the ruin scroll
>>40611230>Play something that matches the rain
>>40611230>Practice that song from the ruin scrollTough choice. Especially if the weather ones would let us actually change the weather.
>>40611230>Play something that matches the rainplease give us the ability to alter the weather.
>>40611230>>Play something that matches the rain>Kat learned the Song of Storms
[What the heck. Why not both? Kat is feeling pretty inspired after beating the old champ. Give me 4 1d100 rolls for the rain song, please. The fourth will be ignored if it's a 1]

>>40611497every. goddamn. time.
You start with the song of the rain. You feel like it’s a good warmup. It’s freestyling, but it’s freestyling with inspiration. Meloetta follows your lead, and both of you play for a bit.Your jam session is suddenly cut short as a splash of water hits you. You look up, but can’t tell where exactly it came from. The ceiling has loads of holes, so it must have come from there somewhere. Still, you thought you weren’t under any.Oh well.“Let’s try something else,” you tell her. You quickly clean the water from your flute and wipe your face. “Follow my lead.”[4 more rolls for the ruins song, please]

>>40611636But I have like a +3 to intimidation.
>>40611636I recall a thread the other day that the only good rolls came from people cursing the Dice Gods. Truly they are fickle deities...
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>40611600>>40611608>>40611609>>40611620[RNGeesus must be angry today]
>>40611700Welp, Melotta pulled it out of the bag.Is she on her way to learning Relic Song?
>>40611609>>40611620>>40611608>>40611600Why are we such shit at fluting?
>>40611721because we want to be good at it
>>40611755Oh shit you're right
>>40611755That explains everything. We must let go of our desires in order to achieve them.And also post more Pokesluts.
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>40611755>>40611815Lets test the theory.Rolling for Kat's skill at percussion. a skill which would be pointless to have on our adventure.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>40611860Forgot your pic. This is how its done.
Rolled 89 (1d100)>>40611860Nah, we'd like that too.Instead, rolling for our ability to learn ancient Greek
>>40611896Well shit.>>40611916Kat is pretty good with her tongue after all...
