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 are 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 circumstances warrant.

Combat mechanics involve three rolls of 1d100, taking the best, and using the base accuracy and crit ranges of the game, roughly, but the 'turn order' will be more like the anime, where sometimes you can do a few moves in a row or be hit by a combo of moves yourself, all depending on circumstances. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.

Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.

You stand on front of Laki and put your hands on your hips while posing heroically. “I’m always hard.”

She looks up at you. It’s only now that you realize how close to her face you got. She smirks. “Doesn’t look like it. But if you were, you’d probably be more popular with the girls.”

What does sh- Oh. OH!

“I didn’t mean-”

She pokes you in the gut, causing you to double over in surprise and a ticklish reflex. “Well, you’re not soft, anyway.” She refers to your stomach. “Relax.”

That’s good advice. You look around for where to lie down. You can already feel your head getting heavy. You awkwardly lay down next to Laki, who is tugging at the top of her own towel to cool herself off. You sort of regret lying down now, since the view from above must be something else.

Huh. She was right about inhibitions. You’re not a perv or anything, but you usually stop yourself from having those sorts of thoughts when you’re around people. It feels rude to think it unless you’re alone, for some reason.

You adjust. You need something to rest your head on. Without thinking, you skooch over to lay your head on Laki’s lap.

“Herb?”

“Mnehg?”

“Nevermind. Too comfy to care.”

Your eyes flutter a bit and you decide to close them. You feel Bella come up and snuggle against you.

You know what you always thought was funny? Curry is basically just a soup that you stir fry.

You’re heavy, you’re relaxed. You’re very much at peace for the time being.

You wonder if you’re supposed to think something.

“Why do you like to cook?” A nonchalant voice asks from no direction in particular.

You look inside yourself. You feel like you can’t lie right now. Like even if you wanted to, which you don’t, you couldn’t close any of your inner walls.

“It’s something I’m good at.” You say louder and prouder than you’d expect yourself to sound. “Something I want to master.”

“You have a bit of a spark in you. Is it electric, fire, or perhaps just the shine of a fighting spirit?”

The question isn’t for you. It’s contemplative.

You look around. You’re in a forest. It’s the same kind as back home, near your grandpa’s old daycare. The tall trees make you feel connected to all the people who came before you, before cars and boats and modern towers and computers and all of that. It was just this, people, pokemon, and the land.

You stumble onto spiderweb. Not a pokemon, but just a regular one. You’re about to just sidestep out of the way before you see a butterfly trapped in it. Your eyes fall to a spider on the ground. It’s got a long journey before it gets to it’s trapped prey. For some reason, you can tell how hungry he is. This meal means life and death. It might not even make the journey up.

The butterfly struggles.

You reach out your hand. The spider, too weak to run, watches helplessly. But you don’t crush it. You offer it help. It climbs onto your hand, then off of it when you get to the butterfly. It consumes it’s prey without thought or mercy, then in an acceleration of time, moves on to have many eggs and offspring.

“An affinity for predators? An appreciation for the natural laws?” The voice speculates.

You’re a guard to the gates of paradise, in shining golden armor. Your job is to judge those who enter. You want to let in the righteous, and turn away anyone who would make it worse. Only after you choose do you know someone’s true intentions.

Last time, you allowed a man entry. He appeared fine, your view of his life from here allowed you to see him work with charity. He had a stain of blood on his hands, though. He claimed it was the blood of a friend who had suffered an injury, who he saved.

The man went on the cause havoc once inside. He weakened things, causing damage and injury. He had lied. The utopia can withstand a few more of those, but not many before it’s walls would fall.

Another man with blood on his hands comes, asking to be let in. A doctor, he says. What you can see of his life seems to back that up. You have a better feeling about him, but still.

If it can't, then we'll need to help build something better. Utopia shouldn't be so flimsy that the neglect of one guard should lead to its collapse.

If it's a utopia it should be able to accommodate everyone without collapsing. If it can't, even the real world is safer and more stable.
>>
>>1101396
I think the idea is that it theoretically could handle everyone, but people who maliciously cause harm could easily destroy it, and that's why a guard has to pass judgment.
>>
>>1101414
But if we don't let them in, where are they going to go? Hell?

I don't want that. Doesn't matter what they've done, that life is over now. I'd rather not damn anyone.

“You may pass.”

You step aside, and the man enters paradise. Only time will tell if he makes it better, or makes it lesser.

You turn to see a trade ship that was launched a long time ago. Pokemon and sailors scurry about on the deck, getting ready to dock.

“Herb!” The man yells. It’s someone you know. A friend.

“You call yourself Herb in your head.” The disconnected voice comments.

You move on. “Friend! That’s a different ship than what you left on.”

He shakes his head. “The materials faded over time. First we replaces one part, then the other, then eventually all of them. We updated the design as well. We even had a change of helpers. I’m the only original piece.”

You give it a closer look. He’s right. The crew, while all acting just like the old one with their work, is made of different faces. The pokemon are from different lands. The ship is made of different materials and the design is different too. Yet the name, The Tauros, is the same.

You think you heard about this thought experiment somewhere. You don’t remember.

From the moment it left port it was a different ship. Slightly more aged, slightly more used, but close enough to the original that we may as well call it the same.

I'd call it the same ship, though, given the name. That's just a matter of opinion, though, not of philosophy. That lets me be self-inconsistent about where to draw the line.

>>It’s the same, because that’s how it’s designated
Just because you replace a part, doesn't mean the whole changes. When the first board was replaced it didn't go from 'The Tauros' to 'Most Of The Tauros And An Extra Plank'. Why would it be any different once you go a bit further? That's stupid. The human body replaces itself every seven years, doesn't mean you have to keep holding funerals for yourself on account of your tragic sept-annual departure from existence.
The Ship of Theseus was asinine when it was concocted and it's still asinine today.

At a certain point, it's not gonna be the ship of Theseus. To take it to the extreme, if they kept rebuilding and changing the ship, it'll be so far removed from the original that you can't tell it's related at all. Thesues never traveled on a paddle steamer, even if it shares a name with his ship.

Or to compare it to humans, if you had every part of your body surgically replaced, including your entire brain, are you even you anymore?

It holds more relevance when you consider extending a human consciousness into another form, such as a computer, and have one part end while the other continues. Alternately, events such as traumatic brain injury that might radically change a person.

“It’s the same. It’s the same legacy.”

“That’s an interesting philosophy, Herb of the Mainland. I-”

The disconnected voice is poofed away. An unrelenting force of wind sweeps in so strongly that somewhere in the back of your head, you feel like your actual hair is blown back. This is something beyond the tea. The aura in the air is different. It’s like your dream from before.

The mighty snake, or dragon, or whatever presence it is, takes over the sky. It’s power is overwhelming. But it doesn’t want to hurt you. Or maybe it can’t. You don’t know, but it bellows loudly. The sound and power don’t just come from it’s mouth, but from the surroundings and sky itself. This isn’t just a pokemon. It’s like a deity.

You don’t feel the fear or pressure like before. It’s probably because of the tea and how relaxed you are.

It’s fangs are showing. It’s slithering around in frustration, like it’s trying to do something but can’t. It looks to your imagination, then to your memories. It moves forward.

yep, to be alive is to wake up every morning and to say "I'm _______ and this is my purpose" if you can't do that then you're basically already dead, as long as you can still do that it does not matter if every bit of your body is replaced or you're put in a computer or turned into energy or some shit you're still you.

That's actually a good point. Consciousness being the point of continuity in the case of a human. The consciousness being 'you'. You think as yourself, therefore you are yourself. Should that cease to be so, you - or rather not you - are someone else.

>>1101696
It's not a matter of purpose, it's more about how human brains work. If you had a piece of a brain implanted to replace a damaged bit, that piece is gonna have memories from it's donor. Keep doing that until none of your original brain is gone. No childhood memories are left, no first love, no friendships. Nothing is left from your past, everything is an amalgamation of donor memories. The original brain is gone, so your personality is only based on your memory of your personality and memories from donors

I would hate him to suddenly get the idea that herb was a secret bully or some shit with a might is right attitude; as unlikely as him thinking that seems.

We need to find a source of income. This is becoming more blaringly obvious as we use up all of our money a day or two after getting it.

>>
“Hey, hold on.” you step in front of it like a cartoon figure. Your legs feel like tubs of liquid that you control. You’re relaxed and fine.

It looks incredibly confused. It has important things to say.

You’re already cooking up some pancakes. You’ve had a craving for them all day. You toss one over.

It floats in front of the creature. He’s shrunk to your size. He sniffs, then bites it.

And he looks impressed. You’d hope so. That’s the best pancake you’ve ever made.

“Relax.” You feel mellow and want to spread it. “Get comfortable. The next course is coming up.” You’re already cooking it up, adjusting heat levels and taste testing.

It looks very frustrated with this time wasting and tomfoolery, but when you toss it the last of the pancakes, it begrudgingly eats them. You feel like you’ve established a stronger connection.

It wants to show you something, but it thinks you might misunderstand. He wants peace, but not before he fixes something.

“I don’t understand what you’re talking about.” You say casually, adjusting your sunglasses. You’re just feeling so chill with things that they appeared.

He wants to show you something for now, but only if you promise to lie about it for now. To trust him in that he has a plan. You feel a great and terrible amount of ego and shame being suppressed as it asks you this favor.

“Okay.”

It growls as it nods. You don’t think it’s growling at you, though.

You’re transported to the sky, high above a massive island. Maybe it’s better to be called a continent. Primitive settlements and peoples can be seen. They look like Loanah people, but the clothes and buildings are all wrong, and it’s one island.

Your vision blurs and you fly high, high, high up into the sky. And that’s when you see it. The dragon. Rayquaza.

There’s movement and confusion, like you’re seeing someone else’s point of view and they’re fighting, but there’s a little of what you can see. The Rayquaza summoned a massive swarm of meteors. Fiery death is coming down.

Your vision blurs to something incomprehensible. Time skips, and you can see the continent now. Except it’s no longer a continent. It’s a series of islands. It’s Loanah. The scars of horrible destruction fade with time, but the once united landmass was so devastated and the civilization and pokemon so destroyed, that things changed forever.

You’re returned back to the cooking space. The pokemon deity stares into your eyes. Everything you saw was true, but it’s not the truth.

“I don’t know what that means.”

You will. Just keep your promise and don’t let them put me to rest yet.

It starts to fade away.

Don't think about the fact that Rayquaza probably meteored the world to break up an argument between legendaries and doesn't want to be sealed away because he thinks it'll happen again and he'll need to intervene to save the world from complete annihilation in a way that hopefully doesn't involve pummeling the planet with giant space rocks.

Hey Gobble, I asked this question on your twitter, but you might not have seen it: in light of all the stuff you've been having to deal with, and to give something back to you for being such a great QM in general, I want to write a lewdbin for you.

So Rayquaza nuked old Loanah in order to stop... something. There was fighting involved, possibly with other legends.

And it's all but begging us to keep them from putting it to rest.

Interesting. Doubtless it thought there was a good reason to do so, but clearly somebody (possibly the priesthood) knows about what happened and somehow holds sway over it in some capacity, and wants to keep it sealed/bound/something because of what happened in the past.
>>
>>1102396
It's probably bound because it nuked the old world. Whatever was going on, what Rayquaza did was enough to end it, so it was probably magnitudes beyond what was going on at the time.

People probably didn't know why Rayquaza did it, only that it did, and they bound it out of fear that would do so again. Time has passed since the event, so people are unlikely to ever uncover the truth of what happened.

If the people responsible for keeping the seal found out Rayquaza could communicate with us, they might reinforce it and further limit its actions.

What if Rayquaza didn't summon the meteors but was trying to save everything from them
>>
>>1102382

“Okay. It’s cool, man.” You stretch. You’ll figure something out.

It fades. But you know you’ll meet again.

“He’s fine.” You hear a familiar voice say. Keira? You feel like you feel her presence.

“Hmm. Yes. I can see into his head again. But I was cut out before.” You hear the disconnected voice. It’s strange to hear it be so real.

“Well, okay. I guess we should let them be until they’re done, then.” Keira says. Her tone is more formal. Must be another person in the clergy.

“Yes.” The other voice says. “I’m interested in Laki as well. We’ll let the mainlander be. I think I’ve seen enough.”

Was she spying on your trip? You bet you’d feel violated if you could care at the moment. But you’re still so relaxed.

You hear Keira and the other person leave. Your head snuggles into whatever nice pillow you’re using.

[Well balls. I'm actually counting a tie. It sort of diminishes the concept of voting, but for this one issue I'm going to say fuck it and just do both. We'll just magically say there was more time than originally implied and roll with that. Sorry about all the time wasting. This is also a good lesson to remember not to make waifu stuff compete with non-waifu stuff in the same vote.

You don’t worry about that and go back to dreaming. No, meditating. It’s no longer a vision quest, but it’s something you feel you can do better in your current state of mind.

You’re the farthest thing from an expert at meditation, but you think that’s sort of your problem. You try. You heard you’re not supposed to try, just do. All that advice ever did though, was make you try not to try.

But none of that matters right now. You’re able to freely reach deep within, and see something you never could before. And it’s because you’re not attached to it that it works.

You fall into your mind and find...

I don't think aura leads to talking. Keira had to learn it like a new language, compared to aura which is more of a innate power that has to be awoken. Aura would lead to understanding how they're feeling

Personally I think healing is a boring power. It's only ever useful in extremely niche situations like Robin's eye. Starting out, we won't even be able to do that. Robin's eye required a psychic, aura reader, a girl almost killing herself, power boosting crystals, and it only caused a scar to form instead of fully healing. Herb will only ever be able to heal minor cuts unless we find some of those crystals

You fall deep into your mind and soul, and see who you really are. You’re a supporter. A helper. You like to make things all better. You have the heart of a healer. You’d probably study to be a nurse if didn’t spend so much time on cooking and fashion.

You reach your hands out and touch something. You feel a connection to this living creature. A small irritant on the skin. Probably just a rash, like something you’d get from falling on the ground. You feel a warm pulsing on your hand, and it fades.

Boy, that took a little out of you. Even as relaxed as you are, you feel it. Nothing some rest and food can’t take care of, you’re sure.

You snuggle up close to your big warm fleshy body pillow. It smells nice. It even wraps around you a bit. “Hmmm. That feels nice.” it mumbles. Somewhere in the back of your head, you think that body pillows don’t mumble. But details like that just aren’t important right now.

>>1103408
Well stimulating an organ seems within the realm of healing at least, it depends on whether healing is just applying aura energy to a system to make it function or if it somehow reverses states.
either way that'd probably be a grandmaster level technique even if it is possible...
I just figured it made a good explanation for herbs sudden bursts of power and dexterity
>>
>>1103408
>>1103325
That said, if we could do that then we could also stimulate our own body to produce growth hormone and testosterone too get SWOLE.
Or Jane's prolactin levels to distract her with surprise breast milk.
>>
>>1103398
Hana and Keira have been constantly vying for first place for me, but the brief amount of time we spent bonding with Valerie made me like her a lot too. Jane and Laki are roughly tied in the position of not being bad choices, but being less preferable to the other girls.

its an alteration of a living system via an outside influence. And if the aura healing amounts to stimulation and boosting of the bodies own self-healing via addition of aura energy then it shouldn't be too hard to simply focus that energy on a specific spot like an organ.

that said I doubt we'll do that sort of thing with herb anyway. Being able to heal our own pokemon (especially mace being volatile as he is) will be useful.

>>1104071
Man, I miss that quest. Wish the QM would come back.

I've thought about waifus and such, so here's my viewpoint (which nobody asked for, but anyway...)
Polu is someone I wouldn't mind at all. He's a massive bro, but a bromance without the b would be fun, too. Completely out of ranking.
Keira seems like a fun option, bringing us deeper into the culture and offering great plot lines. A solid second place.
Laki sounds like a great rehabilitation questline, although I'm not sure what else she might offer. But I trust Gobble with this. Not my style, but interesting.
Valerie has gotten a lot more interesting after the last bit of plot we had with her. This relationship would be the one in which Herb could possibly be the 'mentor' most of the time, which would be rare in others. Got some potential, I would be okay with it.
Hana is special. She's rich in facets, allowing for various interesting plotlines. Accepting her body the way it is, improving our healing magic to restore it... Also, she's fun whenever some innuendo comes along. Call me a thirteen-year old for liking this kind of humor, but I enjoy it. My number one for some weird reason.
Jane... got more acceptable with time. I think she will be reasonably enjoyable if we keep her 'redemption' up.
Honestly, I'm down with mostly everything. As long as it is human.
>>

Same, it's very good listing.

Personally I prefer Keira because the facepaint obsession is cute, and dating a priestess would lead to some fun stories and interactions with the native culture. Laki and Hana, despite being islanders, aren't nearly as "native" as Keira, having adopted a lot of customs from the mainland

not sure if they had a caste system, but pretty accurate.

One thing that interests me is Laki's home island. From an anthropological perspective, it's extremely strange. Some island cultures have been matriarchal, but the males have always been the warrior sex. With how interconnected the islands are, just the one island becoming matriarchal should have never happened.

Gobble is great at worldbuilding, so seeing how they handle it will be cool. Even better if we get a antimainlander leader waifu

You cuddle your huge body pillow. She snuggles back and pulls you close.

It’s finally, actually occurring to you that you don’t own a body pillow that snuggles. In fact, your don’t own one at all.

The fog is clearing from your mind. You realize the pale brown blob in your face is Laki’s chest. Your towels are as big a mess as your heads right now. You try to scooch away before she comes out of it.

You think you’re about to get loose when she puts you into an armlock.

“Why don’t we get to exist?”

It sounds like she’s still out of it. There’s an edge of anger and frustration in her voice, but just a little. Belladonna looks concerned, like maybe you’re not playing. You don’t want her to think there’s any trouble. Mace is out of it and Gobble is snoring. Dice is just sort of playing by himself by lazily flopping around.

Her grip loosens a little.

People don't always understand the weight of what they place on us. If it ever becomes so great that we no longer feel as though we exist as something more than their expectations, then we need to seek out people who are light enough to accept some of our burden so that we can find who we are again.

You decide to accept it.

“It’s fine.” You whisper to Bella. She lights up at your reassurance and goes back to trying to tickle Mace while he meditates. He looks annoyed but keeps doing what he’s doing.

You try to look up to the face of the half naked, powerful girl holding you down. “It’s okay.” You huff out. Your voice is much deeper than you remember it. “You exist to me.”

She spins you around. There’s not that much force to it because she’s slow, but she’s still very much in control. She’s straddling you now.

“No! We do now but we won’t later. And there’s nothing that can stop it.” She pins your arms down. “But I know it, and that means I can at least keep some control over how it happens.” She huffs. Her heavy chest hangs over you. She holds you down like that for awhile. Any time you look like you’re adjusting or moving, she uses her pelvis and keeps you pinned. Nothing intentionally sexual happens, but your body sure assumes it will.

Oh jeez oh man oh boy. You're horrified of moving even a little.

Slowly, her glazed eyes turn more and more focused and sober. She starts to realize where she is and your current situation.

“We didn’t-”

“No!”

She looks very concerned about ending up like this beyond her control, but she also has a bit of a shocked laugh and that aggressive glint in her eyes. "You didn't fight me off at all, did you? I bet-" She’s about to say something when the footsteps are heard at the door. She scrambles off you and secures her towel. You hitch yours up, too.

“Herb.” The woman who had the disconnected voice speaks to you. “Come, the others wish to speak to you about your journey.”

Laki had the same potential to become a priestess as Kiera. Ignored it in hopes of becoming first Athlete. Choked. Ouch.

So, what with the comment that we "called our self Herb even in our head, it got me wondering where that name came from. I was thinking that maybe it is our "man's name", granted to us when we turned 13 in some sort of barmitzfa-like tradition. Alternatively, it could have been a nickname that stuck with us from early childhood, perhaps to distinguish us from another, older John in our family. Does our father or grandfather have a canon first name?
>>
>>1107767
As someone who's had a nickname my younger brother gave to me stick with him for seventeen or so years, it wouldn't surprise me if sis or younger brother were the ones who bestowed it.

She looks impatient. Not with you in particular, but with something. She's tall and beautiful, with a full figure. Her robe is asymmetrical but simple, in contrast to the very complicated and elaborate headdress.

“Okay.” You take your time moving to get up for obvious reasons.

She tosses you your clothes. “All are naked to me, but I understand you mainlanders have your modesty.” She glances down. “I can see why. How barbarous. You may have a few minutes. Don't worry about Laki. We’ll have someone watch over her. I’m interested in her vision quest as well. I’m going to prepare myself a cup of tea. Be in the room at the end of the hall before it’s ready.”

You quickly get dressed and head out with your pokemon. You were hoping for a few hours. You guess they want to talk to you before your inhibitions are back.

Huh. You know they’re still gone right now, mostly, but you don’t care that much.

Sure is chilly here outside the sauna.

How are you going to spend these few minutes before they ask about your vision?

Makes sense. Besides, the priestess said to be in the room before the tea is ready. ETA, 3-5 minutes unless they need to wait for the hot water to get ready. Not much time to do much else.

Water flows on half open, wooden pipes along the walls in a lot of places. It pools in some areas and then continues on it’s way. You’ve seen a lot of people just wash their hands or drink from it, so figure it’s find to do the same.

You splash the water on your face and shake your head. You even give yourself a few light slaps. You drank a lot. And while this helps, you’re still out of it.

You find somewhere else to change and adjust your clothes. You know where all the creases and folds are and how to handle them. You change a few things to try to give yourself a better look, find a reflective surface, and nod in satisfaction. You look good. Loose. Cool.

You go to that room the woman pointed out before. There are five people sitting cross legged, and two girls attending to them. They quickly make themselves scarce at your presence, and you’re motioned to sit.

The five people presiding over your interview, or you guess you might call it an interrogation depending on how it goes, are the Ghost Priest, Keira, the woman with the headdress, the Grass Priest, and someone you assume is in a Fire priest type of roll, based on how he’s dressed. He has a robe similar to the others, but with flame patterns. His hair is wild and tall, probably held up with something. He has a necklace of huge beads.

“You don’t see people coming out looking so good.” The Grass Priest says, filling the dimly lit room with a little more joy.

“So, Herb. Describe your vision quest.”

You describe it as best you can. You’re stopped right before the part where the thing you suspect was Rayquaza showed up.

“My college from the psychic temple seemed to have some trouble after that point.” The Ghost Priest says. “An occasional hiccup with inexperienced leaders happens, from time to time. But would you please explain to us what you saw while she struggled with her duties?”

You were hoping to avoid this so you didn’t have to lie.

We promised not to tell them about the vision he showed us. He never asked us to keep him a secret.

he still blocked himself from the psychic, so he obviously doesn't want them to know about our conversation

it's gonna stand out that a god talked to a random kid on drugs, and they are gonna wonder about the seal

Or Snivy's evolution. they're giant green snakes, and the grass priest would probably assume a green snake to be one

Or he just didn't want them to know what he was saying andthis was the simplest way of doing that.
It makes sense that he wouldn't want them to know he ws responsible for destroying their ancestral land ... but there's no reason for him to care about them just knowing we spoke to them.

>it's gonna stand out that a god talked to a random kid on drugs, and they are gonna wonder about the seal
True. But lying/deceiving the circle of priests judging our visions seems both stupid and out-of-character.

Normally you’d have a lot of inhibitions about deceiving people, but right now you’re just cool with whatever.

What would Grandpa say?

“I saw this big dragon.” You start. They hang off your every word. You describe everything up until the vision. Instead of mentioning it, you talk about the pancakes. You go on about them. One of the best parts about staying at grandpa’s was waking up to pancakes. Even your sister and brother would all get along with them. You’d play games about who got which one, and cut faces into them, and-

“Pancakes.” The Ghost priest says, incredibly unimpressed. “You had a vision of the great protector, and you fed it pancakes.” He turns to Keira.

She’s looking at you funny. She’s reading your aura. “He’s not lying.”

“I can’t see the memory.” The psychic woman says as your head tingles. “But he has familial memories associated with them.”

“So, they remind him of family, then?” The Fire Priest says. “That gives this a new meaning. Not disrespect, but love and passion!”

“That’s what I have to believe with the evidence we have.” She replies.

“He loves to cook.” Keira chimes in. “He even made baco bread on his first try.”

That seems to impress all but the Ghost Priest. He looks even less approving than before. “Moving on!”

They ask about your vision with the spider and the butterfly. “Why did you help the spider?”

We have no confirmation of why he nuked the island, and it stands to reason that he did it to stop either pokemon or people from fighting and destroying the islands(even more than he did).

Breaking a promise to someone we made pancakes for is out of character too. He didn't want them to know about him, or else he wouldn't have blocked the psychic entirely. If he was fine with them seeing him, he would have only censored the bombardment

We wanted to help both, but there was no way to aid both.

Spiders deserve to be appreciated. They help out far more with keeping other insects in line than butterflies do with their minimal and abyssmal attempts at pollination compared to the superior bee.

>You have an affinity for predators. They need understanding too.
Not sure if I'd call it affinity, though. Maybe an affection? You can't really change their nature, but we can redirect it given time and trust. We're simple enough for that to work.

Well yall know what that means, add her to the list boys.

I feel like saying we respect the natural order will have the priests bitch at us about the snow and shit.

You know we have made friends with sharks, a dragon, and a crow. Maybe there is something to this affinity for predators.

Yeah,thats why i chose it
That and it adds more depth and ways to connect with pokemon
>>
>>1108257
Funny thing is that we're definitely prey. We may be badass at times, but we basically have nothing in common with many of the pokemon we attempt to befriend.

We're weird.
>>
>>1108291
That's kind of the reason why I think the predator affiinity thing makes no sense.

Herb might respect them, but he has no real common ground with them.
>>
>>1108291
And youre figuring this out now?
>>
>>1108291
Eh, to me we're prey the same way elk or other large herb's are prey. Badass if you aren't careful, and only the more dangerous of pred's are any real threat. Besides, you only takes some good stomps/kicks to the ribs or horn gore to persuade them to carry on and mind their own.
