You spent a relaxing time with your friends. You and Robin plan to get trained by Vernon, the former champion.General rules:There is a 10 minute voting period after each post. Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.Write-ins for all votes or always welcome and encouraged. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as it comes up.Combat involves rolls! Once there's a clear winner, we roll for the move accuracy/crit/secondary effect. Usually it's just three 1d100s. Sometimes you can get a modifier from circumstances, so be creative! Add flair, do tricks with moves, mess with terrain, whatever!Call me out on a mistake and receive an apology butt or suggestive picture.Badges: 8Current Party:Aria (Meloetta)Nibbles (Tyrantrum)Raistlin (Alakazam)Vlad (Crobat)Leviathan (Gyarados)Zappy Dan (Magnezone)Not In Party:Destiny (Kingdra)Trunks (Trevenant)Fel (Butterfree)Devon (Houndoom)
Robin’s mom, the current Pokemon league champion, laughs in your face.You start ushering your friends and Vernon out. “Come on, we don’t have to deal with this.”“Oh! Don’t mind me!” She laughs in that condescending, shrill way. It’s like she’s pinching the underside of your arm, except in your ears. “If that’s the way you want to play this little game, then so be it.” She walks over to Robin. “You know, I was going to let you win. Really, I was.”“W-why?”“Because you won’t fight your best otherwise. You could fight in the league and lose and go home and tell yourself you did your best. You could convince yourself of that little lie, then just...give up, like everyone else. But to defend the title,” she stares off at nothing in particular, “to defend the title, you’d feel obligated to be better. You’d feel like you had to earn it after the crowds all said hateful, resentful things to you about how you were handed it by your mother. You’d be truly miserable, and in that darkness you’d find the will to fight.” Her eyes fall on you. “To sacrifice.”“You’re a monster!” Vernon finally loses his composure.“I’m a winner,” she turns around and starts walking off. “Because I’m willing to do what it takes.”Everyone sits in silence for a moment.Vernon finally breaks it. “We should get started on your training. We’ll need to head to my place. It’s...far. Meet me at the edge of town where we fought when you’re ready.”>Head to the Pokemon center>Go shopping, you probably won’t be near civilization for awhile.>Wait, you have stuff you want to do. Can you meet him at his place in a few days?>Rush in some extra training before you go to surprise him>Look for a quick battle>Something else

100 threads! Hows it feel Gobble?
>>Go shopping, you probably won’t be near civilization for awhile.
“You guys want to go shopping?”“Sure,” Jeanine pats you and Robin on the back. “Let’s go!”You and your friends head out to the middle of town and start looking around. You spend some time trying on new clothes, looking at trinkets and gadgets and toys for your Pokemon. You look over at everyone. Vance, with his short cape that somehow just looks natural on him. Robin, with that little choker you got her and the bracelet you started for her. Both of her eyes dart around excitedly. Jeanine leans against a coat rack, trying to look wise and offer her opinion on something. Clair pushes it and causes her to almost trip. She smiles and laughs without realizing it.Vance and Jeanine will probably be off fighting Team Imperium while you train. You’re pretty concerned about them.Clair is going to go back to her gym. She’ll probably be lonely.You and Robin are going who knows where for three months. You have no idea what to expect.A little kid tugs at your pants. “Can I have your autograph?”You smile and start signing a small paper she gave you. It’s really hard to feel natural. She smiles and jumps before turning away. You feel doubly awkward since the first thing you did was cover your pockets to make sure she wasn’t swiping anything off you. It’s what you’d have done from that angle.>Buy Vance and Jeanine gear (write-in encouraged)>Buy them all small mementos (write-in encouraged)>Try to convince one or more of them to come with you and Robin>Buy Pokemon vitamins>Wait, give that kid a real souvenir from your bag>Something else
>>40995921>Buy them all small mementos (write-in encouraged)Fuck if I know. We should take some pictures though, at least.
>>40995921>Buy them all small mementos (write-in encouraged)Get them some lockpicks.
>Buy them all small mementos (write-in encouraged)Take a group photo in a photo booth to remember the adventure
>>40995921>>Buy Vance and Jeanine gear (write-in encouraged)>>Buy them all small mementos (write-in encouraged)Group photos. And maybe a bracelet or something like that, something that we all wear.
>>40995921I like the photos and bracelets ideas, though maybe ask if they want something other than bracelets just in case? Maybe Clair wants some snazzy earrings ir something. Or a vibrator so she can still have fun without us.
>>40995921It's gonna be sad to part with our friends! But I'm sure it'll make reunion all the sweeter.>Wait, give that kid a real souvenir from your bag>Buy them all small mementos (write-in encouraged)
Slow day, I guess anons weren't expecting a thread though.
>>409962484th of july weekend in the USA. People are VERY busy.USA USA USA
>>40996280That's true. Too late for EU as well. I guess a slow thread ain't so bad, but it feels weird to have #100 with so many missing, haha.
>>40995921>Try to convince one or more of them to come with you and Robin
“Come on!” You start pulling Jeanine and Vance into a photobooth. Robin grabs Clair.Clair huffs as she sits half on your lap, half on Vance’s. “It’s too cramped!”The camera flashes just as you react to Clair’s complaint.Jeanine takes something out of her pocket. “Yeah.” She starts handing out little bracelets to everyone. “But I can’t complain. You guys are comfy.”You look at yours. It’s a bracelet with a small crystal. Jeanine hands one to everyone. Each crystal is different. Yours is layered. Black and a deep, purple.The camera flashes just as you look up at her. Small tears well up in your eyes. “H-hey, these are the ones from the ruins.”“Yup!” Vance smiles. “Jeanine’s been focusing them.”You look back down at yours, then the others. They have have small slivers missing from the middle. You grab everyone’s and put a small pick in that empty spot. “Just in case you guys get into trouble and I’m not there to bail you out,” you explain.“You? Bail US out?” Clair looks at you incredulously. “Oh you have got to be kidEEEEEEE-” Clair jumps as Robin tickles her under the rib. She reacts just in time to get her picture taken.(continued)
>>40996492You spend the rest of the time goofing off until it’s time to leave. You’re walking down to the Pokemon center close to where you fought Vernon.“I guess it’s time,” Robin looks down at her feet. Her Joltik crawls on top of her head.Vance tries to break the silence. “Come on, guys. We’ll meet up again. It won’t even feel like that long.”“Yeah,” Clair says unconvincingly. “What’s three months, right?”>Hugs all around>You and Robin should give clair one out-in-the-open kiss goodbye>Wave everyone off. You don’t want to make this into a big deal. It’ll be fine. Nobody is going to forget about you. You haven’t had a lot of friends, but separations are normal. You’re not worried. You’re not sad. Why would you be? Haha! Not you! Bye guys! Big smiles! Have a great time! See you soon! What eye twitch? Is it raining? It feels like rain.>Something else
>>40996513>Hugs all around>You and Robin should give clair one out-in-the-open kiss goodbye
>>40996513>Hugs all aroundDon't make it a production either way.
>>40996513>Hugs all around
>>40996513>Hugs all aroundI don't wanna leave! We better see them again!
I'm kinda split on the kiss, don't want to make it awkward for her and Vance.
>>40996513>Wave everyone off. You don’t want to make this into a big deal. It’ll be fine. Nobody is going to forget about you. You haven’t had a lot of friends, but separations are normal. You’re not worried. You’re not sad. Why would you be? Haha! Not you! Bye guys! Big smiles! Have a great time! See you soon! What eye twitch? Is it raining? It feels like rain.
>>40996513>>Hugs all around>>You and Robin should give clair one out-in-the-open kiss goodbye
You hug Jeanine first. Her chest squishes into you, almost pushing you back. You hold on tighter. “Thanks, for the bracelets. For everything.”She laughs. “Don’t say thanks. It’s not a chore to be your friend, you know.”You hug Vance next. He lifts you up into the air without even trying. You dangle for a second, then pull bag. “Heh, sorry. I guess I don’t know my own strength.”You punch him in the arm. “No. You don’t know your own brains. You hide it, but you’re a smart guy. Don’t hide it so well that you forget it too.”You move on to Clair. She rubs on arm while avoiding eye contact. “Make it quick. Don’t get get all gay about it.”“Clair!” Robin protests. “That’s offens-”You grab Clair by the face and plant a big one on her. Not something overly lewd, but definitely not a platonic, friendly kiss. You try to subtly watch Vance. He looks surprised, but not upset. He sighs and rolls his eyes.Clair takes a second to compose herself. “Hey,” she barely whispers, still confused and weak. “Hey!” This time is much louder. “You crazy dyke! I’ll-”“Offensive!” Robin grabs her this time and gives her tongue. her hand runs up behind Clair’s head, through her hair, just like you usually do to Robin. Clair gives a very soft, faint moan.“Uhh...” You hear from Vance.“S-s-s-sorry!” Robin’s sudden burst of courage vanishes. She hides behind you, blushing furiously.“Come on,” Jeanine grabs Vance. “Let’s give Clair something to feel awkward about as payback.”"Uhh.." Vance repeats as Jeanine presses into him and walks off.Clair chases after them. “But that wasn’t me! That was Robin!”(continued)
>>40997136You watch as they head off into the distance. Robin grabs a hold of your hand. “We should go.”You and Robin head to meet Vernon. just as you get there though, the camera crew arrives too.“Woah. Woah woah.” Vernon starts protesting. “No cameras. We’re going to be doing intense, serious training. You want the whole world to see every technique you master?”>He’s right. Sorry, you can continue filming in three months.>Who cares. You don’t mind if people see you train>Maybe you can convince them not to air training film until after the tournament?>Something else
>>40997136Good job Robin!
>>40997160>He’s right. Sorry, you can continue filming in three months.Maybe it's time to end our career. And with that I gotta sleep even if it sucks missing the rest. Thanks for running!
>>40997160>Maybe you can convince them not to air training film until after the tournament?but if not then>>He’s right. Sorry, you can continue filming in three months.
>>40997160>Who cares. You don’t mind if people see you train
>>40997160>Maybe you can convince them not to air training film until after the tournament?It feels kind of shitty to just ditch them like the very second that we got what we wanted, with extras.
>>40997204[Thanks for coming!]
>>40997243Not this time around I'm afraid, but the last smut was nice!
>>40997160>Maybe you can convince them not to air training film until after the tournament?
>>40997160>He’s right. Sorry, you can continue filming in three months.
“Any chance we can reach a compromise?”“I don’t see that workin’ out,” Vernon spits. You get the sense that he’s bitter towards cameras in general.“Kat,” Kroustou starts, “we figured you’d want to take a break, or stop this. There are...some...things...” coughs, then forces himself to continue. “some things...more important...than great television.”“Well, I’ll be back in a few months. We can pick it up from there, right?”Erin looks up from a chart. “Maybe. If there’s still a demand for you then, then sure, no problem.”“But audiences can be fickle,” Tim chimes in. “We’ll be going with plan B until you get back, and when you do, you’ll probably need to make a big entrance.”Aria appears from her Pokeball. She does a dazzling spin, shooting off small sparkles. “Sorry Meloetta, we’re not filming anymore,” Dave starts packing his camera away. “We’ll be following someone else until you get back from training.”She looks pretty crushed. You guess she really likes being on TV.>Maybe she can go with them. how much stronger can a legendary get?>Training is hard, but it’ll be worth it>Promise you’ll make it up to her somehow>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get back>Something else
>>40997558>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get backAwww
>>40997558>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get back>Training is hard, but it’ll be worth it
>>40997558>>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get back
>>40997558>>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get back>Training is hard, but it’ll be worth it
>>40997558>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get back
>>40997558>Maybe she can go with them. how much stronger can a legendary get?
>>40997558>Training is hard, but it’ll be worth it>Promise you’ll make a grand entrance when you get back
She slumps down in the air, landing in Robin’s hands.“I know it’s hard to give something up for training, but it’ll be worth it in the end.”She flails dramatically but lazily in Robin’s arms. “I promise we’ll make a big entrance when we get back. We can even work on it together.”She perks up, suddenly full of ideas. You let her zip around in the air as you turn your attention back to the crew. “I’m really sorry everyone.”“Don’t,” Erin stops you. “It’s not like you kept your intentions a secret or anything. To be honest, the studio will probably just be happy you’re coming back at all.”You wave them goodbye as they head off. You wonder who Plan B is?Vernon, whose said nothing for awhile, speaks up. “Come on, to the Pokemon center.”You and Robin follow him. he asks about how many Pokemon you have, what kinds, general information like that.You stop at the Pokemon center entrance. “Great. Robin, give me one Pokemon. Kat, you’ll need to give me four.”“Wait, what?”“This way we can have all of them with us at once.” The short old man pokes you with his cane. “What, you think I’m going to run off with them or somethin’? I just need you to gift them to me while we train.”Robin looks unsure. Even if it makes sense, giving a Pokemon away for any reason feels wrong. She eventually reaches for a Pokeball from her pocket. Looks like Golems.>Fine. Give him the Pokemon that aren’t on you>No way. It doesn’t matter if it slows down your training. It’s not happening>Give him four specific Pokemon (specify)>Something else
>>40997913>Fine. Give him the Pokemon that aren’t on you
>>40997913>No way. It doesn’t matter if it slows down your training. It’s not happening
>>40997913>No way. It doesn’t matter if it slows down your training. It’s not happeningYeah, no. Out of principle not. Not handing them over to anyone.
>>40997913>No way. It doesn’t matter if it slows down your training. It’s not happeningI know he said to do everything he says, but this isn't going to happen
>>40997913>>Fine. Give him the Pokemon that aren’t on you
>>40997913>Fine. Give him the Pokemon that aren’t on youwhy the fuck not?
>>40997913>>Fine. Give him the Pokemon that aren’t on youI trust him
>>40997913>No way. It doesn’t matter if it slows down your training. It’s not happeningThis is a test.
>>40997913>>Fine. Give him the Pokemon that aren’t on youThat would be a terrible start to our training. He said to do everything he says and that's hat we're goin to do.
>>40998191>>40998231>>40998236>>40998244You guys are coming to late, 10min voite limit.>why the fuck not?Because we don't just hand over our pokemon to someone else. Its not done.
>>40997913Can we get a final destination vote? I snese samefagging. There weren't this many people in this thread.
>>40998266>He said to do everything he says and that's hat we're goin to do.Nah, fuck that. He is not remotly worth bending over for.>>40998280Why? The vote is completly clear within the time limit.And the spam of votes outside of it don't matter.
>>40998272We've traded with other people before. It's a common thing. and no one wants to make the trip back into civilization every couple days.
>>40998280it doesn't matter, everyone from >>40998110forward is late, so the clear samefagging came too late to change the result
>>40998272>My mind is in a box and I have trust issues.Confirmed for never gonna be league champion.Even if he does steal them, we can just beat his ass.If our Pokemon aren't retarded it won't matter, he can just hand them back whenever.
>>40998295>clear samefaggingyou mean these?>>40998110>>40998076>>40998030
>>40998292>We've traded with other people before.Yeah, that was actual transfer of ownership. We decided to let someone else take responsibility for them.We are not handing over our pokemon to strangers. Not going to happen.
This decision is so OOC it's disgusting.
>>40998334>Not handing our pokemon to a stranger is OOCYeah, because Kat is all about bowing to the demands of authority figures. Sure enough. Stop being so salty about not getting your way.
>>40998322He's literally holding our pokeballs for us. that is all.
>>40998348We're trusting him to train us for three months. We'll trust him to hold our pokeballs.
>>40998373Those are completly different things.
>>40997913To clear this up Gobble, are we putting them through the trading machine to give to him or are we physically handing him the poke balls? What's legal here?
>>40998389There is nothing to clear up, its giving him our pokemon. The exact mechanics of it are irrelevant beyond possibly making it a even stronger no.
“No way. I can’t do that.”He sighs. “Look, I get it. Strange old man asks for your Pokemon. You don’t want to put them in a weird spot. But it’s fine. Really.” He reaches a hand out. "Nothing bad will happen.You keep your Pokeballs where they are. “I can’t. I’m sorry.”“You said you’d do everything I say,” he reminds you.“I just can’t, alright?” You do feel bad about that, but the thought of giving your Pokemon away to someone else, even if it's just a technicality, makes you feel ill.He rubs his temples. “You’ve got to work on your trust issues. Okay, I can probably figure something out, but you do everything ELSE I say, okay? No more freebies.”Robin hands him a Pokeball. “Golem won’t mind.”You’re pretty surprised, but you guess it’s Robin’s choice.“Great,” he pockets it. “someone sensible.” he starts walking, then stops himself. “Though I suppose sensible girls don’t offer old men their panties though.” He chuckles.Robin looks at you, a clear question in her eyes. No really, there’s a question mark in one of her eyes.“Got anything left to do here?” He asks before you can fill Robin in.>Cycle out your Pokemon with Prof Fir (Gobble’s picks)>Exchange specific Pokemon with Fir (triggers new vote(s))>Nah, let’s go. You have three months>Wait, you had one more thing left to do in town (specify)
>>40998373that's like saying trusting a personal trainer to help you lose weight means you can trust them to raise your children for you
>>40998407Quit being paranoid anon. He's here to help us train. Not steal our pokemon
>>40998440>Cycle out your Pokemon with Prof Fir (Gobble’s picks)Definitly Devon at least.And Fel needs the training.
>>40998440>Cycle out your Pokemon with Prof Fir (Gobble’s picks)give us a dream team Gobble
>>40998440>>Cycle out your Pokemon with Prof Fir (Gobble’s picks)
>>40998440>Cycle out your Pokemon with Prof Fir (Gobble’s picks)
>>40998440>Cycle out your Pokemon with Prof Fir (Gobble’s picks)>>40998461Its not about paranoia, its about the principle of not handing them to a stranger.And I never wanted training from him to begin with, I still think it would have been more IC for Kat and more interesting for the quest for Kat and Robin to train on their own.This pathetic lack of self-reliance is the most disgustingly OOC thing that ever got voted through here.
>>40998505>its about the principlebullshit>And I never wanted training from him to begin withNow the real issue comes out. You not being able to Roleplay. Kat trusts him and you do not.
>>40998505People like you are the ones who make questing not fun.
>>40998536>Kat trusts himNo she doesn't, what the hell makes you think she does?Just because she lets him train her to beat Robins mother, doesn't mean she trusts him. Don't be stupid.>>40998558Yes, I realise playing in character makes quests less fun for power gamers who want all the best benefits. But I don't give a shit.
>>40998505That's having a disconnect between you and the character. Solution: Roleplay.It's what /tg/ is all about. You should try it some time. Stop always trying to self insert.
>>40998505I agree that Kat finding her own way would have been better, but sabotaging the path we're on just makes things less fun for everyone.
>>40998571>No she doesn't, what the hell makes you think she does?"Hey, I'll do absolutely everything you say for the next three months, please train me.
>>40998584>That's having a disconnect between you and the character.No disconnect at all, people voting for having Kat not rely on her own strength and efforts, thats the ones who need to learn to roleplay.
>>40998602You are not quoting anyone, and he asked to train us, actually.
>>40998615>and he asked to train us, actually.flaseWe asked him to train us and robin.
>>40998592>but sabotaging the path we're onI'm not sabotaging anything. I just continue to play Kat IC on a path that is already OOC, of course there is going to be a clash.>>40998629Actually we only asked him to help train Robin. He wanted to train us.
>>40998615He told us that if it's going to work we would ahve to do everything he said and we agreed to that.So he was paraphrasing us.
>>40998602Thinking Kat would ever do "everything someone tells her" is completly dumb.How does that make any sense for her character?That was just anons who wanted the super special secret techniques for their powergaming, voting for OOC shit.
>>40998637Maybe the character is developing, realizing that if she wants to be the best then help from those who are great would help her? It's called character development, it tends to happen in long stories.
ITT people salty over a vote they lost several threads ago.
>>40998669>realizing that if she wants to be the best then help from those who are great would help her?Except there was no point at which she would have had this realisation.Character development requires events that make the character re-think shit. Absolutely nothing ever happened that made her think she would need to learn from someone else.Except maybe from Robins mom, I think we can all agree that would be even more retarded.>>40998691Actually, the salty ones are the ones bitching about the vote they lost right now.They are the ones throwing the fit about it.
>>40998691I want the rest of the playerbase back.
Ignore salt, post pokesluts.
>>40998704>Except there was no point at which she would have had this realisation.>>40998704When Robins mom Mega evolved a random beedrill. And knew that she could mega evolve any of our pokemon no problem.
>>40998704>I think we can all agree that would be even more retardedFuck you, I wanted to learn Robins moms crazy secrets.That would have been amazing.
>>40998729>When Robins mom Mega evolved a random beedrill. And knew that she could mega evolve any of our pokemon no problem.As I said>Except maybe from Robins mom,Maybe you should try reading fully what other people write.Nothing about that lends itself to learning from the dude Robins mom beat years ago, and even we could beat already.
You dial up Professor Fir while Robin and Vernon make the trade official using one of the machines.“Hey Professor!”“Hello there!” The professor greets you back, just as friendly. “How can I help?”You and Professor Fir catch up a bit, but you don’t want to spend too much time chatting. “So I need to train some Pokemon out for now.”“Well,” he says, “you’re certainly keeping busy! Give me a few minutes and I’ll make the switch.”You swap out Aria, Raistlin, and Vlad for Devon, Trunks, and Fel. You’re just trying to make sure everyone gets time out with you as evenly as possible. You sort of lost track. You hope you haven’t neglected anyone.“You know,” Professor Fir begins. “That Butterfree of yours produces a lot of powder.”“Is he alright?” You hope your clubbing didn’t do anything bad. He seemed so solid!“Fine,” he says. “Just unusual. He won’t be able to move as quickly as most other flying Pokemon though. It’s a genetic oddity that sometimes happens with the runt of a pack.”Butterfrees have runts? You consider what he told you and thank him for his time.“Alright,” Vernon puts a hand on your shoulder. “It’s a bit of a trip. Unless you can charter us a helicopter, we’ll have to head out as soon as possible to get the most out of our time.”>Well, you’re still pretty loaded, maybe you can. More training time, right?>Okay, let’s beat feet!>Hold on! You still have one more thing to do!>Something else
>>40998888>Okay, let’s beat feet!
>>40998888>>Well, you’re still pretty loaded, maybe you can. More training time, right?
>>40998888>Okay, let’s beat feet!>You swap out AriaNow I regret letting you pick. Of all the pokemon we still needed to spend more time bonding with...
>>40998888>swapping out our legendary that we need more training/bonding time withnever let gobble pick anything ever again.
>>40998888How much is it to charter a helicopter every half month to and from town, Gobble? That seems like a swell plan to me.
priority list for traing>Fel>Levi>Aria>Raistlin>Nibbles>Trunks>Zappy Dan>Vlad>Destiny>Devon
>>40998990>>40998941Yeah that doesn't bode well as far as trust goes.
>>40999150I'd probably put Vlad above Nibbles, because several of his new moves are still untested.Otherwise looks good to me.Even if I'm mega salty about having to spend time bringing Fel up to speed with everyone else despite him not really adding much.
>>40999216Yeah, it kinda sucked doing that right after losing the cameras and promising her to train with her, and then ditching her right afterwards.But nothing to be done about it now. Maybe Prof. will know how to cheer her up.
You look to Robin. She nods. Her Joltik, who’s resting on her head, nods too.“Okay. Let’s get moving.”The three of you hit the road. Vernon isn’t exactly what you’d call fast, but still faster than you’d expect or a man with a cane. It’s the perfect pace for Robin, who’s still recovering from her surgery.“So, how far is it anyway?”Vernon grunts. “I wanted to get far away from the public eye. it’s great when it’s look up to you, but ain’t nothing worse than having it look down on you.” He points to the vast, dense jungle. Despite the impassable looking trees, he leads you through discrete small paths without having to stop or backtrack. “There’s a large hill. Or I suppose it’s a short mountain. Anyway, it’s a few days in this direction here. I used to be able to drive there when I had my all terrain.” He sighs, “that thing could really get you around. Raichu used to love riding it.”You don’t remember Raichu's being particularly tough, but you know there’s more to it than that. At least, you want to believe that. It’s hard to be entirely bought over by that way of thinking when you’ve seen first hand the innate power of a legendary Pokemon.Vernon and Robin are slowing down a bit. Neither of them wants to show it though.>Let’s camp here. You have three months! It’s getting late anyway>Press on. They’ll say something if they want to stop>Look for wild Pokemon to battle>Something else
>>40999391>Let’s camp here. You have three months! It’s getting late anyway
“We should camp here,” you tell Robin and Vernon. “Good shade, small stream nearby. It’s perfect.”Vernon stretches his back. “Well, I suppose. But the real training starts in the morning.” He looks at you meaningfully. “Get a good night’s sleep.”You and Robin set up your tent and feed your Pokemon. it’s getting dark faster than you’d expect.>Spend time with Fel, get to know him and his moves>Lewd the hell out of Robin. You might not have another chance in awhile>Train a Pokemon. You need pre-training to be ready for whatever is happening tomorrow>Study on your Pokedex>Practice the flute>Eh, you’re not tired. Take a quick walk before bed>Meditate. You’ve learned enough from Jeanine to figure it out>Something else
>>40999657>Lewd the hell out of Robin. You might not have another chance in awhile
>>40999657>Lewd the hell out of Robin. You might not have another chance in awhileShe can make heart pupils now, there is no way we won't lewd her.
>>40999657>Spend time with Fel, get to know him and his moves
>>40999657>Spend the night looking into Robin's eyes. Both of them! You still can't believe it!
>>40999657>Spend time with Fel, get to know him and his movesNo use going in blind
You want to spend time with Fel, but you don’t see the rush. You’re going to be doing a bunch of training, right?You look into Robin’s eyes. Both of them. You still can’t believe it.She looks up at you and smiles. “What?” She brushes the hair behind her ear. Her hair is getting pretty long these days. It works for her.“You look good.”She blushes and looks away. Her right eye turns into the shape of a heart. “No, you do...”You crawl over to her. A wicked smile creeps up your face.Robin’s face takes on a soft pink hue as you gently push her back. “I know you’re tired. Don’t worry. I’ll take care of you.”[Pastebin ideas welcome]You wake up the next day drenched in sweat. Bleg. The humidity around here is intense. You and Robin get a quick rinse in the nearby stream before coming back to the camp. You see Vernon there, preparing tea. “Oh good. You’re awake. Listen. You and Robin are very different trainers, and like I was saying before, you need different training.” He hands you a cup of tea. “I want Robin and I to go on ahead.”You look at your tea, then Robin who’s out of earshot. “Why?”His normally harmless old man face hardens a bit. “Your Pokemon trust you, Kat. They’ll jump without hesitation if you say so. But do you trust them?”What kind of question is that? “Of course I do.”“Oh really? You’d let Devin fight a Pokemon without your help? You’d trust his judgement on that?”You think back to when Devon fought that Arbok, way back when you were getting Vance’s parent’s money from Team Imperium. You didn’t let him have the fair fight, opting to end it quickly. You still think that was the right call though.(continued)
>>41000249“Would you let Vlad loose in a cave full of female Zubats? Would you let Levi swim in a river full of other Gyarados? What about Trunks? If you had to leave him in charge of watching a child, would you do it without hesitatin’?”You don’t feel like getting into this. From his tone he’s not trying to agitate you, but you’re still feeling agitated. “What’s your point?”“I want you to put yourself entirely in your Pokemon’s hands.” He hands you a map. “That tea will paralyze you from the neck down.”You eye him suspiciously, then open the map.“You just need to drink the tea, let your Pokemon take you there through the jungle, and we’ll begin the real trainin’.”>Okay. Drink the tea.>No way! He’s nuts! You and Robin are out of here!>No way! You want a different exercise>Something else
>>41000278>Okay. Drink the tea."Can I have some of my pokemon out first thought?"
>>41000278>Okay. Drink the tea.Kat isn't a pussy
>>41000278>Okay. Drink the tea
>>41000278>Okay. Drink the tea.
>>41000278His examples don't even make sense to the exercise here. There is a huge difference between them getting their shit together for small indulgences, compared to taking care of Kats life.Of course we trust them with that.What a retard he is.>Okay. Drink the tea.>If he tries to endanger Robin with something like that, he will regret it.
>>41000278>>Okay. Drink the tea.
>>41000278>Okay. Drink the tea.>What about Trunks? If you had to leave him in charge of watching a child, would you do it without hesitatin’?”Why wouldn't we?
You look into the hot cup of tea. “Are you going to make Robin do something like this?”He lifts himself up with his cane. “No. She tries to outsmart all her problems. She needs to learn focus. It’s not a dangerous exercise. Besides. It wouldn’t be fair, what with that eye of hers.”You blow on the tea, then drink it down. Vernon watches you as you drink it down to the last drop.“Ha! Ahahahah! You fool! I have you now!"You grab a Pokeball from your belt, but your arms go numb and you drop it.“I’m just messing with you. Yeesh. You really do have trust issues.” He picks it back up and attaches it to your belt. “People and Pokemon ain’t so different. Most are good, or at least decent.”“That wasn’t funny,” you feel your knees losing strength. You don’t dare take a step.“Well, it was to me, but I’m sorry if I stepped over a line there. Maybe you have your reasons. I’ll get a Pokemon out for you before I head off. Which one do you want to start with?”>Devon (Houndoom)>Nibbles (Tyrantrum)>Leviathan (Gyarados)>Zappy Dan (Magnezone)>Trunks (Trevenant)>Fel (Butterfree)[Last update of the night. Sleepy]
>>41000606>Zappy Dan (Magnezone)
>>41000606>Trunks (Trevenant)Opposable thumbs, yo
>>41000606not very much action for a hundredth thread bonanza Gobble, you going to make it up to us next thread?
>>41000381I think Trunks is fine with kids. Though he may have a point in that we don't know if he's qualifiés to properly take care of one.>>41000606>Trunks (Trevenant)If he can take care of us, he can take care of a child.
>>41000732[Sure hope to! Sorry about that by the way. It's been a long, brain-draining week.]
[Thanks for coming everyone. Sorry it wasn't exactly a super spectacular quest #100 special. Next thread should pick up the action]
>>41000954Thanks for running.
>>41000606"You realize that I know a guy who hated me SO much that he tricked an entire country into thinking I was the long-lost princess who probably got killed by some ghost balloons pretty much JUST so he could see the look on my face when he told me it was all a lie?"
>>41001138Like just something to say in the next thread. Because if anything we've been remarkably trusting.
>>41001159I like it. Yeah, this guy probably thinks Kat is a dramatic edgy teenager and not someone with legitimate reasons to distrust old authority figures
>>41001138That reminds me, I wouldn't be opposed to at least looking into it while traveling (when we get back to traveling).Just at least ask around if there was ever a little girl that was dropped in from a Drifloon or Drifblim.
>>41001538Or ask, in his career as pokemon champion, has he known Drifloons to leave survivors?
