Taking in Takehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Island%20Adventure%20Questhttps://twitter.com/GobbleQMCharacter info pastebin in progress: http://pastebin.com/iB0tb7rzDice cheat sheet: http://pastebin.com/994WTT3gGeneral 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. Infact, you can do more than one move in a row like the anime, but so can your opponents.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Totodile)Badges: 2Recently: Hana got zapped, you go to Take, confronted Laki about a joke, awkwardly flirted with Hana, and turn down a sidequest.

>>1223118it beginsgood thing I stocked up on suggestive pictures
>>1223118YESSSSSSSSSGobble. I'm going to touch you appropriately.
You look some bamboo. Luckily, it seems to grow pretty heavily here. You’re the farthest thing from an arborist, but even you can spot it in the wild.“Alright gang, let’s get to work!”You wonder how much you’re supposed to get. You figure he’d probably tell you if it was more than you could carry, so you decide on that for your limit.Your pokemon help, in their own ways. Bella is trying to cut a bamboo shoot down, and slowly getting some practice to a move that looks like Cut to you. You’ve always heard it was sub-par in battle but great to know for stuff like this. Maybe she’ll learn it with time?Dice chews a shoot down, but he starts chewing that one up after.Gobble works hard at first to knock a few over, but gets distracted when he finds that young bamboo shoots are edible. He stops eating them. You think maybe he’s full, but instead he walks to your bag, gets some spices, applies them, then goes back to eating. Besides him being a little heavy on the salt, you’re very proud.“Gobble! That one has a bug on it. Don’t...nevermind.”You glance to Mace. He’s using moves like Headbutt to crack them at their base. It’s not that effective because they’re a little springy, but he’s working hard.You’re having a hard time of it yourself. You don’t have any saws. You resort to using your good serrated knife from your cooking set.After a good long while, you wipe the sweat from your brow, and gather up all the shoots. You plot onto the ground next to it with your pokemon. “Good job. Take a break, everyone. We’ll head back after.”What an exhausting day. Your body is already seizing up like a rusted thing that seizes. You don’t know mechnical stuff. You lie there for a bit, thinking.>Thinking about a new battle strategy (will vote on options after if chosen)>Thinking about one of the girls (will vote on options after if chosen)>Thinking up a new recipe (will vote on options after if chosen)>Just letting your mind wander freely (Aura stuff.

>>1223243Super comfy. Great image. Out-of-focus background really gives an impression of depth and makes Moon pop out. Sand, sunlight, and soft towel all look super inviting. Moon herself is easily recognizable, her pose shows off her assets well without looking unnatural, and her smile invites me to stay. It's obvious that she's nude sunbathing on a beach in alola, and turning to give us her attention. Her hair and skin have a healthy shine to them which makes them look even softer. Face is a little angular though. Artist signature is easy to find and legible without being intrusive. Even the censor bars are in good fun. Makes me happy, like she and I could fuck right there or just relax in the sun together and it wouldn't matter which. Welcome to Alola/10.

You let your mind go where it will. You heard that was what you’re supposed to do when meditating, but people get all caught up on trying not to try and it just turns screwy.Well, you won’t bother with any of that. Too tired. You just lie down, looking up at the trees and sky, feeling the breeze and your pokemon. A leaf reminds you of a spice, a cloud looks like beautiful womanly hips, a smell reminds you of the field by your old home, the way Gobble stretches and lies back down is exactly the same way your little brother did in his crib when he was new to the world.You close your eyes. Deep inside you see coloured threads. You don’t have think what they are. You just feel their relation to your own mind and aura. You reach out and pull one.>Blue.

10 minute voting period sure does work.

>>1223441I came in late and rushed a post without thinking.
You tug on the blue one. You’re not the luckiest person around, or the most competent, so anything you do to keep your failures from being too bad or numerous is a good thing. Mom had this plaque on the door to her office that read “Amateurs practice till they get it right; professionals practice till they can't get it wrong.” It’s a little cheesy, but it always sounded like good advice to you. You let yourself get wrapped in the thread. And for some reason, you think your abilities are just a little more reliable.Hmm, you could go for something with melted cheese.Woah! What time is it? Your pokemon are gathered around you still, which makes you relieved. Dice even got inside his pokeball somehow. You scrounge for your pokedex. Before you can even get it out, you hear a spot a dark figure under the weak moonlight. Definitely human shaped.>Try to sneak up on it.>You were wrong about the people this morning. Go say hello.>Hide! Everyone hide!>Run! Everyone run!
>>1223465>You were wrong about the people this morning. Go say hello.
>>1223465>>Try to sneak up on it.
>>1223465>>Hide! Everyone hide!
>>1223465>>You were wrong about the people this morning. Go say hello.
>>1223465>Try to sneak up on it.
Imagine if we pulled the blue string and snapped it...
“Hello?”It bursts into a run. Before you can even move, the figure leaps through the air at you. Arms and legs fly open wide and it impacts on you like a net.“Herb!”“Keira?” You aren’t sure how you’re able to stand up. Your pokemon, who scattered, come crawling back out. At least they have the decency to look embarrassed about it. You already forgive them, though. You were scared too.“Yeah-huh! How are you? Everyone was worried.”“Umm. Fine. I’m really sorry. I guess I fell asleep.”She slowly slides down your body until she gets low enough to make your heart race for a different reason, then she shoots back up to face you. “It’s okay. I kept telling them you’re fine. I can tell with these things. But I couldn’t sleep. I was setting up wards for the ship so everyone would calm down about the ghost from before.” She narrows her eyes at you for a second. At your hair. The moonlight glints off the concentrated moisture. “Hey. I didn’t notice this before, but I thought I saw something in your aura. Something...aww, nevermind. Just glad to see you.”She takes your hand and guides you back. You glance back to make sure your pokemon are following, and they are glued to you.She hums while leading the way.“Excited for your next gym battle?”>You’re way under prepared. You need to train. Hard>You can’t wait! You’ll go first thing tomorrow.>You want to do some shopping and explore before anything>Can you teach me aura stuff?>Something else
>>1223576>Can you teach me aura stuff?>You want to do some shopping and explore

>>1223576>>Can you teach me aura stuff?>>You want to do some shopping and explore before anything
>>1223592I don't know why but the mouth in that one disturbs me.
>>1223576>You want to do some shopping and explore before anything>Can you teach me aura stuff?
>>1223576>>You’re way under prepared. You need to train. Hard>Can you teach me aura stuff?
>>1223595it's the bottom set of teethno anime character has a full set of teeth
I really like non-traditional goals in these kinds of stories. Getting all the badges, going to all the contests, those are boring and standard. I remember thinking Vance's goal of just getting better at his fucking hobby was much more interesting and open ended.At the beginning I was completely on board with focusing on becoming a master chef, but with recent developments I'm actually beginning to wonder if we should be come a fucking magic enlightened Pokemon guru.I definitely want to focus hardcore on developing ourself, independent of hardcore goals at the very least. The gyms and shit can come second.>>1223576>Can you teach me aura stuff?
>>1223608That and the more I look at it the eyes are a bit too flat. Comes off kinda soulless. Don't get me wrong she's sexy/cute. But that one spooks me.
>>1223576>You're way under prepared. You need to train. Hard>Can you teach me aura stuff?>You want to do some shopping and explore before anything. Wouldnt hurt for us to see the sights and spend time with everyone
>>1223576>You’re way under prepared. You need to train. HardI always vote to train, Jane is training everyday to make sure all her mons are in top form and I don't want to lose to her or Polu, however I do enjoy our jaunts.
>>1223621plus we want to look good for our date with Jane
>>1223576>You’re way under prepared. You need to train. Hard
>>1223576>>You want to do some shopping and explore before anythingalways too late
>>1223627Indeed I do anon, I am a raging Janefag. Any info on the gym, do we know the type?
>>1223627Not too good. If we look like food her shark instincts might take over.
>>1223650I'm failing to see the issue of Jane trying to devour Herb
>>1223650eh, she can eat his plantain if she wants
>>1223616While I'm not as into the idea of becoming an enlightened Pokemon guru, I agree 100% that goals unrelated to the gyms are way more interesting, and that those should be our primary focus.
>>1223616Agreed. I don't mind doing gyms, but I'd rather avoid an overly huge focus on training pokemon.
>>1223673I remember when we picked exploration as our initial goal. I'm still down for that.
I think we should do the gyms and all but it should not be the primary focus, going on adventures and exploring sounds more fun; the gyms are just an excuse to go to these places.
I like collecting badges though, I love meeting all the gym leaders and going through their challenges. Hell the fire gym has been hands down my favorite of the gyms counting the ones from this quest and the last one.
>>1223681I prefer a nice balance of training and side quest. We do need to work on some of our mons move list. (Mace getting Sandstorm, some asking for Gobble to learn Recycle, etc)
>>1223693there is no reason that for the most part the side quest can't BE the training, take how Bella almost just learned Cut. Standard training is not necessary if we develop an innovative enough work program.
>>1223702Well a lot of the innovation can be hit and miss. We can still do some traditional training to refine and get those attacks down.
>>1223714I agree, but I far more balanced approach then what Kat took could be fun and effective.
>>1223682>>1223691I agree. Exploring with our friends, pushing each other to pursue our hobbies, getting strong enough to take on the gyms, in that order. I like meeting the gym leaders, and the burning temple challenge was a great new take on stuff like this.
“I don’t think I’m ready. And we just arrived, so I want to do a lot of training first.”“Well, don’t work yourself too hard. You look pretty tired.” She feels your forehead. “If you keep going so hard, you’ll get sick.“Thanks. Oh yeah. How’s Hana?”“She’s doing well! Laki tracked almost everything down and said she’d get the last thing tomorrow.”“And umm, how are things between them?”“Hmm? Oh, fine. Laki’s been extra nice.” She helps you back onto the boat. She’s a lot quieter now. She can move like a shadow when she wants to. You wouldn’t know she was there if she wasn’t in front of you.You ask her about auras, and if she can teach you anything.She clasps her hands together. “Can we? Oh! I’d like that a lot! I’m not a master of it or anything, but I can teach you the basics, and brew helpful teas, and we can intermingle our auras.” She pokes her fingers together. “Erm, that last part can get a little... personal.”“Thanks.”“No problem! But first you need some sleep.”Yeah. She’s right about that. You can barely keep your eyes open. You and your pokemon go to your cabin and get ready for bed. You crawl in and get nice and cozy in your boxers as you feel the soft sheets embrace you for whatever’s left of the night.There’s a soft knock on the door.“Herb?” It’s Valerie. She slowly opens the door. “Hey. Sorry. I heard you come in. I can’t sleep.”You do your best to assure her that it’s fine. Your eyelids are so heavy.She pulls on her hair and looks around. “Anyway, if you don’t want to, it’s fine, but can we sleep here?” Her pokemon peak around from behind her. “That ghost really scared us, and I spent last night in Laki’s bed, but things are getting...well, that’s not important. And Hana is already asleep and I can’t move her to get in beside her.”>Sure. You’ll sleep on the floor.>”Sure, hop in!”>Give her the bed, go sleep in the cabin>Try to assure her the ship is safe, and that she can sleep in her own room. Be brave, Val!>Something else
>>1223730>”Sure, hop in!”
>>1223730>>”Sure, hop in!”
>>1223730>Sure. You’ll sleep on the floor.Choice number two is tempting, but I don't think Herb is forward enough to suggest that.
>>1223730>Sure. You’ll sleep on the floor.
>>1223730>>”Sure, hop in!”Or in sleep Herb speak "suuuuuurrzzzZZZZZZ"
>>1223739you're ignoring the possibility he did not even imagine anything sexual, he is both dense to these things and sleepy at the same time.
>Something elseSure, but ask her about sleeping arrangements.Though if Herb lets slip he wants someone to cuddle with or some shit in his tired state I'd squee.
>>1223730>”Sure, hop in!”Then pass out while she is thinking lewd stuff
>>1223747>>1223730Damn it. I'm making a bad habit about this.
>>1223730>Sure. You’ll sleep on the floor.>“If you keep going so hard, you’ll get sick.Missing a " there Gobble.
>>1223730>"Sure, hop in!"Unless...>Sure, You'll sleep on the floor, we can use Gobble as our pillow.We ask her which she's more comfortable with. Sounds like she wants to be close to someone
>>1223746I'm pretty sure even Herb isn't that dense. He got excited when Keira's face happened to be below his waist. He's lucid enough to catch that, at least.
>>1223746I think the best/worse case scenario is the possibility of morning wood
>>1223757Yeah, that's fair. Otherwise I doubt she'd mention snuggling in with Laki the night before. I'll change my vote to asking if she'd like to share the bed, but tell her we're okay with taking the floor if she isn't comfortable with that.
>>1223762it's plausible deniability anon, don't be a party pooper anon; this should be funny.>>1223766best case
>Laki finds two blondes cuddling>Takes what she wants>Valerie and herb both wake up as little spoons.
>>1223774I'm very ok with this
>>1223774I like this plan
>>1223774I think Laki's already asleep in her room
>>1223774>Laki doms blondes>Blondes use Laki as pillow>Laki has Herb make breakfast>Mission Accomplished.jpeg Best end to a hard days labor
>>1223730>”Sure, hop in!”If *I* were in that situation I'd sleep on the fucking floor, but I'm pretty sure Herb is dopey enough that he may actually be a little slow on the uptake as far as sexual tension goes.Alternatively, she may be trying to sleep with Herb because she sees him as less sexually threatening than Laki, which is kind of sad.
>>1223118Awwwwwwwwww yis!>>1223730>”Sure, hop in!”
>>1223802it's not that hard to be less sexually threatening than Laki "the weak should fear the strong" McLastname
I want Herb to wake up to Valerie cuddling up to him. They seem like they're be really close friends like that without it being sexual
>>1223824Weak should fear the strong != I am claiming you as my prize, deal with it.
>>1223829He would definitely wake up with wood, though. That *might* give it a sexual feel.
>>1223835Well, at least Val can give Keira some tips after tonightbesides, all the other girls have seen Herb's pride. Val shouldn't be left out
>>1223829Herb is a good boy!
>>1223847I don't think she would necessarily think to give Keira tips.She would give Hana tips, though. I'm okay with that too.
>>1223847Hana hasn't, she's just stuck in into her face
>>1223730>Sure, hop in!And once she's in his bed Herb will wish her a good night and go to sleep
>>1223859True. All the other girls have experienced Herb's plantain in some manner.I doubt Jane or Keira saw it after all, it would have been dark in the shed/closet
>>1223316Very good worldbuilding in this one. Moon's Stantler costume provides some love to a rarely seen pokemon, and its bagginess looks comfortable. Lillie's costume is cute without seeming like something she'd be afraid to wear in public. The picture seems to be of Moon and Lillie out on a date, and each of them are excited in their own way, with Moon having the confidence Lillie lacks. Glad ion in the background helps draw our eyes to the girls' booty and provides a cute joke. The Minior tree topper is a nice touch, but implies it is at below half health, which is concerning. The gradient background implies a warmth of spirit unique to the winter holidays. It's March though. No artist in image or file name. I hope their date goes well/10.Also, when do we resolve to learn a recipie from all the temples in-character?
>>1223874I think Jane brushed against it briefly in the closet. She called us a barbarian, IIRC.
>>1223876by god, it's a TEAM working on it
>>1223876Hopefully when we visit the temple here.
>>1223874Jane didnt need to see it. She got a handful and its burn into her mind and her dirty fantasies[/spoilers] forever
>>1223878She literally fucking grabbed it.
>>1223880No, I'm still pizzanon. I just stopped entering the name field because it was affecting someone's enjoyment of the thread, and possibly other, less vocal people too.
>>1223878she grabbed itonce by accidentanother time to memorize it for replication so she can beat Herb when it comes down to her having to seduce the dictator he's become
>>1223874Oh boy I brought this up in one of the last threads, it's finally Vals turn to experience Herbs 'barbarism'!
>>1223888I was there, it really doesn't bother most people and you have a really good reason. Go ahead and use a name, the changing id's are annoying.
>>1223888Other than you coming off a little overenthusiastic, or people debating the drawbacks of namefagging, I haven't noticed anons getting irate. Must have missed that.>>1223893I'd forgotten about that. Normally pretty good at remembering these things.
>>1223888I don't mind, you keep on going.
>>1223896I bet she'll wake up in the middle of the night with it looking into her back/stomach/between her legs
>>1223902literally one anon got mad, and not even at him specifically. Think dropping it was a bit of an overreaction, especially since he is providing something unique now.
>>1223896>Val becomes a cheerleader for Herb while he's working out>Herb becomes her perfect fantasy>Herb, now filled with self confidence, goes for best girl>the one that loves him for who he is and wants him to be happy
You’re so tired. Your head is heavy. Everything is heavy. “Sure. Hop in.” You pat the inside of the bed.Valerie hesitates. But there’s a creek from the boat settling. At least, that’s what you assume. Valerie almost leaps and looks around. “Oh. Nevermind. Thanks.” She crawls into the bed.She crawls in. There’s a flood of cold from the air rushing under the blankets, then a nice soothing warmth as she crawls in.“Herb, You’re a gentleman, right?”“Myeh huh.”The distinct sensation of silk brushes your skin and reminds you that you’re just wearing boxers. But even that doesn’t matter as much as sleep. Sleep is everything.There’s another creek, and you feel your arm being pulled over something warm but still shivering. It presses into you and smells like lavender. The feeling of pokemon cuddling by your feet completes the perfect comfy feeling and you drift off to sleep.You wake up the next morning seeing an incredible display of smooth butt in a silky pink underwear stuffing itself into a pair of tight shorts. You make a tiny squeaking noise at the shock. Not what you expected first thing in the morning.Valerie turns around.>Pretend to be asleep. Don’t embarrass her>”Good Morning.”>Get up and put on some pants too. When in Loanah, right?>Something else
>>1223917>”Good Morning.”>Cover eyes with hands
>>1223917>Get up and put on some pants too. When in Loanah, right?She'll see the erection, but isn't that what most of us are going for?We're cruel, cruel people

>>1223917>>”Good Morning.”>>Get up and put on some pants too. When in Loanah, right?
>>1223924As if there was any doubt.
>>1223917>incredible display of smooth butt in a silky pink underwearI demand an improper grammar butt
>>1223917>Get up and put on some pants too. When in Loanah, right?I feel like pretending to be asleep would seem like we're creeping on her, and just talking would seem like we're making a pass at her, no matter what we say. Best to be totally honest.>>1223852Beautiful. 1,000,000/10. I want to protect Herb's smile. Herb is the best waifu.
>>1223939when can we access a cloning machine and make a r63 Herb?I'm sure Pokescience can prevent any effects of recessive disorders Herb might have
>>1223939You make a strong case. Part of me feels that maybe she might just want to avoid the whole situation. Though this could be an opportunity to help her relax around everyone. Kind of one of our 'challenges' we give each other.
>Val screams and runs out of the room>Laki pokes head in>Sees thisMy body is ready.>>1223960A r63 herb would be far too much for anyone to handle. He's already the best waifu before tits or a round ass.
>>1223960>>1223970The r63 Herb bin will happen one day. I don't care if its a drug trip, dream, just AU, it will happen. This is the hill I will die upon.
>>1223960You know I am against the Polu route due to latent homophobic tendencies I can't really control, however this does not set them off for some reason. I support this.
If there was a r63 Herb, Laki would've jumped on that faster that a cat on a robin.
>>1224000or a Kat on a Robin even.
>>1224000we'll have to beat her to beat her to the punch thenthe instant she comes out of the cloning machine, time to sleep platonically next to herb in a comfy bed
>>1223960Normal cloning can't give you the same person the sample is taken from, because they'll have had different experiences. What we need is for Hoopa/Solgaleo/Lunala to grab Herb from the r63 universe. What's the female equivalent to being hung, anyways? As far as recessive disorders go, if Herb had any X-linked recessive disorders they would already be expressed, so no problem there.>>1224007The Dutch-tilt seems to imply this is a physical photograph of Lusamine on a pile of photos, but the reticle implies this is being seen through a viewfinder. And the only time I can imagine a powerful lady like Lusamine embarrassed to take a candid photo but doing so anyways would be for her husband, and thinking about Mohn makes me sad. I'm confused technically and emotionally/10. Artist signature is legible though, so that's a plus.
Great now I want to reread the first quest, I really liked Kats confession to Robin.
>>1224033Same. Anyone remember what thread the confession was in?
>>1224038Suptg 'Gobble' tag archive seems to think that it's Pokemon Quest #24 part 2.
>>1224038ha ha, good luck that thread is a pain in the ass to find. If I recall correctly it's one of the ones that is screwy in the archives. You can still find it, just that as I recall it was a pain in the ass to find.
>>1224051>>1224038oh disregard, it was because I was using pokemon quest as the tag instead of gobble.
desu robin mostly is a rule 63 of Herb. Or Herb is a rule 63 robin.
>>1224065Herb is a hundred times more innocent than Robin.And he's blond.And they have very different interests.
>>1224025could always have a psychic implant r63 versions of Herb's memories into the clone.that might be how every girl wins HerbBowl, through genetically modified clones with implanted memories. Laki gets one that has a myostatin deficiency and a r63 version, Hana gets one with reinforced bones, Val gets one that has slightly reduced myostatin levels, and Jane and Keira share the real Herb
>>1224065I heard all the characters in the last quest ended up mary sue savants, i hope that doesn't happen to Herb :(
>>1224088The only savant really was Clair. The rest of it was all through hard work and lucky rolls.
>>1224088They also got varyingly beat to crap and worked for it, though.It also had a macho man wrestling Ursarings and swinging grunt members by the legs into tables.
>>1224088nah just Clair
>>1224088Last quest was on a different scale desu, but even considering that, the fact of the matter is that in pokemon training and self development is pretty much the core of the fucking series. Do you expect someone to get to the fucking league championships and not be really fucking good?We SHOULD become a master of SOMETHING by the end. You're not a Mary Sue savant if you become the best after busting your ass for 100 threads. If we didn't reach that level I'd honestly feel like we were in a total rut of mediocrity.The issue is with how that development is paced.
>>1224088It was "high-level." We were an exceptional group of people, but we faced level-appropriate challenges and were very human in our flaws and insecurities. I probably sounded like I was complaining when I talked about it before, but honestly most of it came from having a cast that was both young and competent, which is a weird combination to me.
Battling Alakazam was fun
>>1224126what would we have done if we lost, fuck.Just tell him he has a point and let him direct himself in battle?
>>1224126Raistlin was great overall. He was a really sympathetic character somehow.
>>1224139The general isn't always the booksmart scientist or something like that.
>>1224151I agree, but if he could effectively kick our ass it would prove otherwise.
>>1224161Nah man, inspiring is part of battling too.
Gobble is kill
>>1224164apparently not if an alakazam with no battle experience trounced us.
“Good morning.” You force yourself to act naturally.“Oh. Heh. Good morning.” Valerie does the same. “Did...did you sleep well?” She looks away, pretending she’s not doing it on purpose. You’re only able to read that because you do it a lot, too.You stretch, and swing yourself out of the bed. You make sure not to look at yourself, or you’ll get too self conscious. But it’s only now that you suddenly feel the springy stiffness in front of you. You hear a gasp as you give in to the urge to look down. Yup.You quickly cover up, tuck, and rush your pants on.“Sorry! I didn’t mean-”You stop talking because she’s saying the exact same phrase.“To look!”“No. That’s fine. I didn’t mind that you saw. I mean-”“No. I know. I mean, not that you-”“But that part was an-”“Accident! I know. You’re a guy and that just-”“Happens! Exactly. I didn’t mean anything by it. And it’s got nothing to do with you!” Oh crud. “I mean, you’re really pretty and you smell really nice.” don’t be creepy. “Not that I noticed.” That doesn’t make any sense! “But that’s not why-”“It’s okay! You just wanted to not be shy and be like everyone else on the islands and make getting dressed no big deal. Right? Me too. And we did sleep together, so it’s not like seeing each other in the morning is a big deal.”You laugh and make a bunch of gestures showing she’s dead on because you don’t want to interrupt her. She starts doing it too and you both act like that those flailing inflatable tube guys except you’re also making weird faces. You’re both just trying so hard to show the other that it’s not weird and it’s making it weirder.“Breakfast?”“Yeah. I’m so hungry I could eat a horse-di...A horsea!”You both head to the kitchen and you volunteer to make breakfast. Everyone says it’s fine, but you can’t help but feel flattered that nobody fights hard at all when you insist. Laki even flicks Valerie’s shoulder when she sounds too much like you should relax.But to you, cooking is relaxing.You put on the apron that’s hanging there. You wish you packed on yourself. Now let’s see. What do you and your pokemon need most for training today?>Something generally healthy. Give everyone that extra staying power>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practice>Something to help everyone’s mood. Lift spirits>Some brain food. Make today a day of learning>Something else
>>1224195>All that spaghettiSo Val and Herb are from Pokemon Italy?>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practice
>>1224195>I’m so hungry I could eat a horse-di
>>1224195>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practice
>>1224210She was saying Horse Dinner, must be really hungry.
>>1224195Now that's an awkward wakeup I can get behind.>Something to help everyone’s mood. Lift spirits
>>1224195>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practiceWe do need more training. Even if Herb isn't going for all the badges, you need to be able to fight if you're going to be adventuring.
>>1224195>Something to help everyone’s mood. Lift spirits.I wanna live up our "team mom" label.
>>1224195>>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practice
>>1224195>Something to help everyone’s mood. Lift spirits
>>1224195I don't think we need to make breakfast, we already had all that spagetti
>>1224195>Something to help everyone’s mood. Lift spiritsMan Herb is the cutest, I really wonder who will win the Herb bowl. I already know my top 3 but I'll save that for post thread.
>>1224195>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practiceA nice southern style breakfast, but with a tropical spin.I really like Herb and Valerie's dynamic Gobble, keep up the good work
>>1224195>>Something generally healthy. Give everyone that extra staying power
Speaking of Gobble we need to talk to him about his evolution, I'd be cool with a Snorlax but if he evolves I don't think he can help us out in the kitchen like he does now.
>>1224241Plus we need to grab those munchkax exclusive moves first.
>>1224195>Something to help everyone's mood. Lift spirits>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practice.Is there any way to combine these? Assuming a high roll will be required>“Yeah. I’m so hungry I could eat a horse-di...A horsea!”....huh. I'm assuming this was due to her eyes lingering, cause otherwise Pic related
>>1224241I still say we should keep him as a Munchlax forever, but that didn't seem to be the common opinion.
>>1224251If Gobble wants to stay small he can, but I'm fine either way.
>>1224251Personally indifferent. There's pluses and cons to both.
>>1224251I'm still invested in the idea of the snorlax food critic in a fancy suit, touring the countryside critiquing restaurants.
>>1224241>>1224251Honestly I'm on the fence about evolving him. Depends on what Gobble wants to do. He seems to enjoy dancing and is actively experimenting with his culinary skills. Might mean we'll need a battle team and a cooking team. Wonder if they have an island version of Iron Chef. We'll need a Miltank (for MooMilk), a Shuckle (Berry Juice) and any other food based pokemon to make the most bad as cooking staff.
>>1224251I'd prefer we not hamper him, and I like Snorlax
>>1224264But a Munchlax in that same suit would be even cuter, and he'd be compact enough to help in the kitchen, while still being a dancing sumo wrestler.
Snorlax is the only natural thing in my opinion. How else will he be able to eat more if he doesn't have the space?
>>1224283cuter maybe, but it somehow does not have the same visual appeal.
If I am being completely honest I mostly want Snorlax for cuddling purposes.
>>1224278a bisharp would make prepwork really easyand we could name him Dice to confuse people we battle
[Roll for bonus effectiveness!]
>>1224195>Something that gives you a lot of energy. More moves, more practice>Laki even flicks Valerie’s shoulder when she sounds too much like you should relax.Am I the only one that's having a bit of trouble understanding this line?

Rolled 7 (1d100)>>1224302
>>1224291I'm sorry anon, some people would rather he not evolve. it's terminal, also this a joke
>>1224310>trying to cut stuff with flowers for hands
>>1224321She learned Cut!
>>1224325irrelevant! she lacks the fine control needed for the perfect slices>>1224326bisharp are great though
>>1224325Learning, she doesnt have it down just yet. Its not bad for her to know, but would rather her learn other movesBisharp is a self maintaining knife. And i vote for the name Ginsu
>>1224344Bisharp is my favorite pokemon, so I can agree with these things
>>1224344>>1224345>>1224349I love Bisharp too, but the comp fag in me Rees at the thought of having an even bigger fighting weakness and another physical attacker without much defenses or speed. Like I'm sure they could do cool Parry stuff.
>>1224349My two favorites are Munchlax and Honchkrow. If we can get our Murkrow friend to join up, I will be very happy indeed.
>>1224355Bisharp actually doesn't need a high speed stat, in competitive, mostly because of Defiant and sucker punch. >>1224364I really like Honchkrow too
>>1224355Thats why he's one of our cooking staff, not as much for our battling. Though i'm ok with him being as a battler. Typing isnt everything
>>1224376I know, but our team lacks any fast Pokemon. Dice could maybe get there, but right now he is probably on the average side of things.
>>1224364>Honchkrow>not unevolved murkrowM80, do you even Prankster?
>>1224380don't need to be fast if you're impossible to hitdrunken master was a great idea
>>1224380Once he evolves he'll be pretty fast. Feraligatr are known to be quick (according to the Pokedex anyway) and they learn Agility too.
>>1224395I'm hoping for Dragon Dance myself. Maybe Aqua Jet from Hana's turtle that I don't want to spell the name wrong and am too lazy to google.
I wanna catch that Misdreavus. They're a cute and ghost types are based.
>>1224390I can't help what I like. That said, I wouldn't be opposed to Murkrow either.
>>1224425Misdreavus is a solid choice, but I like Froslass more. Bella needs a noble lady to show her how to be laugh haughtily.
>>1224438>not wanting a screechy KEKEKEKEKE
>>1224425Would definitely support getting a ghostespecially if we could get a drifloon, but I'd be okay with a Frostlass or Misdreavus
Golurk is best ghost!
>>1224446One of the best Ghosts
>>1224457Oh my god, yes! Golurk was such a bro in the past for me in the games
You cook up a main dish that’ll give lots of energy for today, so you’ll be able to practice a long time. You also make a smaller side dish that should keep everyone cheery. It’s amazing the power that food has. You tighten your apron and serve it up, to the thanks and applause of the group.“Oh look! Gobble learned recycle!”“Oh. Oh gross.” Laki shifts her plate away.“It’s okay. It’s a natural...oh. Yech.” Keira says, despite herself.Gobble ignores all criticism and does it again. This time he’s not able to get it back and looks crushed. He wanted to eat it again and again.“It’s okay, Gobble.” You set down another plate for him. “I got you.”He lights up, quickly adjusts a little bib made from a napkin, calmly picks up his cutlery, and drops his face onto his plate and eats without using any of that stuff.Ah. You feel great. You grab another plate, but on your way back to the table, you come face to face with Mr. Scwhibbles.“Oh. H-hello.”He stares blankly.“Are...are you hungry?” You slowly offer the plate.He silently takes it, then slinks away into the darkness of the ship. You try not to think about it and get yourself another plate and sit down with everyone else.Laki avoids talking to you, but utters a “thanks” as she finishes her plate and carries the other plates away.“So, all of us were going to head into town today.”Hana nods. Apparently she’s feeling more up to it, despite the issues with her limbs.“There’s a training center there, if you want to go.”“It didn’t look very clean.” Valerie says. But she quickly covers her mouth. “I don’t mean-”“No, it’s not clean.” Keira assures her. “Which is strange, because cleanliness is a large part of our culture. I don’t want to step on any toes, but I think I should check out the temple after all and see what’s going on.”“Sometimes you have to get dirty to get things done.” Laki says bluntly as she hitches up her bag and walks past, not looking at you. “I’ll get that last part today. I’ll call you and we can meet up.”“I feel guilty making you go alone.” Hana works up the courage to tell her.“Don’t.” Laki hops onto the dock. “Stay close to Valerie or someone will kidnap you and sell you for scrap.”Laki glances back to see if you’re going to say anything.>Stand up and call her back. You want to settle this>Let her go. You won’t get involved again>Catch up and have a private conversation>Something else
>>1224438Froslass is also acceptable.>>1224457You can get right out. Go on, shoo!
>>1224467>Let her go.
>>1224474>Not liking spooky robot.Die in MULTIPLE FIRES!
>>1224467>Catch up and have a private conversation
>>1224467>>Catch up and have a private conversation
>>1224467>Let her go. Dont even look at her. She wants to play this game, let her.
>>1224467>>Catch up and have a private conversationWe need to nip this in the bud
>>1224467So never gonna use Recycle>Catch up and have a private conversation
>>1224467>Catch up and have a private conversationJust apologize for overreacting. It wasn't your place.
I'd also be happy with an Aegislash
>>1224467>He lights up, quickly adjusts a little bib made from a napkin, calmly picks up his cutlery, and drops his face onto his plate and eats without using any of that stuff.Why do we argue, when best girl has been with us the whole time?
>>1224467>Let her go. You won’t get involved againWell now she's just bring petty.
>>1224500>falling for the QM self insertWe already knew Gobble was best
>>1224506Why do you keep posting this.I was sleep deprived. Please stop reminding me of my indiscretion.
>>1224509Oh damnit my phone double posted, ignore this
>>1224516it's never going away anon
>>1224467>>Catch up and have a private conversationwe were in the wrong before, but we still gotta hash this shit out
>>1224516What did you think would happen?
>>1224506>>1224516[I like that the threads have their own memes]
>>1224532Do you honestly think I was thinking when I posted that.
>>1224537you made this happen when you honestly gave us the option>let gobble know you appreciate him
>>1224542Not at all. That's why it's so amusing.
>>1224542Yes>>1224537It has been me every time after the original, not sure if that counts as meme.
The more I think about Aegislash the more I feel it'd be a good fir for Herb but I still think Golurk is best ghost.
You quickly gather your stuff and pokemon and run out after her. She’s already gotten a good distance, and doesn’t slow down to help you catch up.“Soft Hands.”“Hey.”“You going to town? I’ll walk you in, but after that you’re on your own. Keep your hands in your pockets and don’t let anyone bribe you into a van with candy.”Well, she’s willing to joke, even if her sense of humour is a little dark right now.>Apologize for yesterday>Ask her to go easy on Hana. She’s sensitive>Just try to chat and make things more friendly>Insist on helping her get the part before you train>Something else
>>1224579>Double Battle>Send out Golurk and Aegislash>By their powers combined....I never knew i wanted this so badly
>>1224584>Apologize for yesterday>Insist on helping her get the part before you train
>>1224584>>Insist on helping her get the part before you train
>>1224584>>Apologize for yesterday>Insist on helping her get the part before you train
>>1224584>Apologize for yesterday
>>1224584>Just try to chat and make things more friendlyFits Laki's wheel house; avoiding problems.>Then talk to her about yesterday. Depending on what she says will determine whether I vote apology.
>>1224579man, forgot about them.Now I want Herb to learn arnis with a doublade from Polu or someone
>>1224584>Apologize for yesterday>"I probably took assertiveness too far. Hana is capable of sticking up for herself."Then>Just chat.
>>1224584>Apologize for yesterday>Just try to chat and make things more friendly
>>1224542You were just saying what we were all thinking>>1224584>Just chat
>Something else"What should I let them bribe me with?"
>>1224584>>1224628Alright, I'm done for the night. I'm too tired to board properly.Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>1224584>Apologize for yesterday>Ask her to go easy on Hana.>"Normally I wouldn't have said anything, but she doesn't like it when people call attention to her metal bits."
>>1224628I'll support this to breakthe ice.
>>1224628>>1224653In agreement, supporting this
>>1224628Supporting this option
>>1224653Actually, yeah. I like this a lot better than apologizing. We didn't do anything wrong, and she's being petty about it after the fact. Just joking with her to show we're not mad is better here. There's no reason for us to back down.
>>1224628I'll back this suggestion.
>>>1224584>Apologize for yesterday >"Normally I wouldn't have said anything, but she doesn't like it when people call attention to her metal bits."
>>1224653To clarify, say that to break the ice, and work an apology in naturally.
Isn't Laki full Islander? I have to wonder if she even knows what that joke means considering how long the islands have had cars at all.
>>1224584I'll go with these dudes>>1224628>>1224653
>>1224717I imagine pop culture taught most of them plenty about the mainland.Too much, in fact; to the point that Laki and other islanders are worried about losing their own culture.
>>1224717>Trying to mend things with Laki"How do you primitive islanders even know what a car is? I mean, gosh."I know you weren't suggesting that but still.
“What should I let them bribe me with?”She gives you a funny look, then cracks a small smile despite herself.You walk for a bit. She doesn’t say much except a warning to watch your step on a sudden drop on the path around a corner.“Hey. About yesterday. I’m sorry. Normally I wouldn’t say anything, but she doesn’t like it when people treat her differently because of her prosthetics.”She waves your concerns away. “Nah. I get it. Hana’s a delicate flower and you’ve got to be the knight in shining armor sticking up to the big bad bully. Did she at least give you a reward?”You aren’t sure how to respond to that.She sighs. “Sorry. I didn’t mean to sound so bitter. Guess I'm still taking it too far. We’re good, Soft Hands.” She pauses to think. “We are good, right?”You nod. If course you are.She smiles and puts you into a headlock, and gives you a soft and quick nuggie. “Alright. But just so you know, girls don’t care about that sort of thing. Well, they do, but they don’t appreciate it. You do everything for her or put her first all the time, she won’t respect you. Anybody that doesn’t respect you won’t get your dick wet.”“That’s not why I did it.” You try to sound cool.“I know, Soft Hands. That ain’t you. You’re a good guy.” She leans on you. “You choose the wrong things to be ballsy on, but you’re good.”“I said I was sorry...”She punches your arm. Ow. “Okay. I’ll stop giving you a hard time. Truth be told, I respect you for it. Don’t let that get to your head though or think I won’t turn you into mush if you piss me off, okay?”>Ask how she knows all these mainlander references>Mention last night with Valerie>Want to do some training later?>Give her a hug>Put her in a headlock. She respects that, right?
>>1224755>"Thanks for the advice. Hug?">Then put her in a headlock as she's mid hug
>>1224755>Give her a hug>Put her in a headlock. She respects that, right?

"Thanks for the advice. Hug?”“Yeah. Sure.” She stops and gives you a big one. She feels smaller when you hold her like this. At least, no longer larger than life.You have a devilish idea as she breaks it. You come around and reach to put her into a headlock.“Oh no you don’t.” She grabs your arm to fight you off. You move your arms some more to get better leverage.“Yes. I. Do!” You give her a quick tickle, then when she laughs and tries to stop you, you’re able to get your arm on her neck.And it works!At least, until she leans forward and lifts you off the ground. Your headlock doesn’t break, but you have no control about where the two of you are going. She carries you around as you hang off of her until she gets tired of it and lets you off.“You’re getting stronger.” She squeezes your arm. “But you’ve got a bit to go.”“Thanks. Sorry if I was too rough.” You notice the red mark you left on her neck. It’s fading, but you still feel bad.“You’re a good guy, Herb. But you’re too nice. Some broken girl is going to bring you all her problems and you’ll keep trying to fix them until you’re all used up, burnt out, and bitter. I don’t ever want to see that happen to you. When you settle down with a girl, make sure she’s a sweet as you, okay?”[That’s it for tonight. Thanks for coming. Sorry it was a slow one. Janebin is in progress.

>>1224893Thanks for running Gobble truly appreciate the work you put in for us. Who is your favorite of Herbs mons to write? Now that we are in post thread Jane is best girl, Laki and Hana are also acceptable

Candela's hair was accurate for Laki right? Or was there a better reference?
>>1224917I disagree with you anon, but I respect your viewsKeira is number one, Jane can be the second member of Herb's harem but only if she helps build an extension to Keira's sex nest

I respect everyone's choices for their best girls mines just happens to be Jane.Heracross best bug!
>>1224958I prefer Shuckle.
>>1224974Scyther has always been my favorite.

>>1224958you forgot Yanmega
>>1224974>>1224977>>1224982You can have other favorites, but Heracross is factually the best bug. Without peer.
I'm partial to Scolipede

>>1224893Thanks for running Gobble
I crunched the numbers and like half the bugs are good.>>1224893Thanks for running, I'm glad my battle is already over for that bin.

>>1225012>Dark Herb goes in for the Ki-hug.
>>1224893Thanks for running Gobble!
>>1225012doesn't look like Larro's style, but I swear ive seen this style before in Audit quest
>>1225016Considering how many bugs there are and how many of them have wimpy first stages, thats pretty impressive.>>1225018I tend to associate maractus with spiky shield and cotton guard and less with dancing, but you do raise a good point, plus with herbs group being as it is right now it would mean seeing the shenanigans bella would get up to with or against said maractus. Also... dear lord does maractus learn a lot of hp drain/recover moves.>>1225029I think Its Lamb-tan, the one who does the Loading screen pictures iirc.
>>1225033Well I was counting evo lines, but many of them are pretty cool or liked by people. People say Gen 5 was the lime light for bugs, but so was Gen 2.
>>1225038Gen 7 did pretty well with the bugs too I'd say, I like most of them design wise.
>>1224925[She'd die]>>1224902>>1224910>>1224914>>1224938>>1224945>>1225016>>1225021[Thanks!]>>1224917[I don't really have a favorite to write. They're all situational.]>>1224932[This]>>1224947But the other pics capture her fairly well, too.>>1225012[Saved as fuck! That's awesome! Thank you so much.]
>>1225050>[She'd die]We need to say that then.
>>1225033Indeed it does. I figure if Val found one with Petal Dance, that would be pretty solid comboI associate it with dancing due to the show which it debut and its description >It uses an up-tempo song and dance to drive away the bird Pokémon that prey on its flower seeds.
>>1225012Looks like we have a fan of Koha-Mace.
>>1225060Ah ok, stopped watching the show in like... the second season I think, forever ago basically. I hear the current one has done some fun things (I heard team rocket actually won a pokemon battle against ash?) but also done weird stuff with the visual style and general tone.
>>1225050While i assume we'll have to learn it through dice rolls and actual conversation, but can you provide any additional insight to the Val/Laki
>>1225073Yea they're have been some fun stuff here and there. I do recommend the Diamond and Pearl seasons if you ever get the chance. I need to get recaught up to the more recent stuff.
>>1225059>>1225066Not sure if you like her or want her removed
>>1225163From what I can tell, the first guy wants her gone, and the second guy actually likes her.
>>1225163I like her, but I assume Gobble meant die of embarrassment, which is harmless and cute. Also a great way of accidental counter bullying.
>>1225163She'd die of embarrassment. I like her. Making her blush would be spectacular.
>>1225185just like our tickle counter attackOnce we get a bit more familiar with Laki, we develop a sensual counter
>>1225213More like she'd die of laughter.
Man, we should let Laki know sometime what a sweetheart we know she is. She puts the tough and strong part of herself out first, but she takes good care of us, and even now is taking the lead to help Hana. And she let Val and Hana sleep with her when they were scared.I think Herb would consider her to be strong like him. She's really only afraid of admitting it.
>>1225436Very well said, I always find it cute how kind Laki is, but she just can't bring herself to see those qualities in herself.
>>1225436I think if herb had an accident she'd stay by his bed, and have huge mood swings of anger, rejection, tears, longing and be so relieved when he's ok, only to shout for being so reckless and upsetting her Laki is so cute, we should tell her. Also what's val's opinion on our horse di-
>>1225436>>1225059There's so much to look forward to, jane date, pushing val, hana opening up, laki bringing down his walls, mixing auras with kiera, why is this waifu war so hardwe need to embarrass laki though, make her go red around herb & only herb
>>1225554>why is this waifu war so hardbecause Gobble introduced 5-6 waifu's all at once and made them all great.was also why I almost didn't continue this quest, too much to absorb at once. In the end I had to make an actual chart temporarily till I could get it strait in my head.
>>1225050Next run tonight?
>>1224579FUCK!Dying, send help.
If Gobble is really going to do that au r63 Herb I humbly request something I have wanted since the beginning. Naked apron Herb, I probably wouldn't have brought this up until a route lock.
I want Lake to get embarrassed so hard that she puts the moves on us to be more in control and make Herb shut up.
>>1225747This is relevant to my fetishes.

Gobble seems to be doing a movie livestream thing.Thread tomorrow (Saturday, at least for burger anons) for those wondering
>>1227344[Not a regular thing, just didn't come home with the ability to run and decided to do this spur of the moment. Sorry it's a bit sucky. Adding other people to the channel. Working on rule 63 lewdbin and janebin.]
>>1227522Even if your stream stutters like Porky the Pig I still love you
>>1227522It's fine Gobble.You're still awesome!
>>1227522In the future you could always just post a start time of a movie available on YouTube and live tweet it.
the fact Gobble is doing some sort of movie livestream thing makes me think they have been on 4chan a long long time.
>>1227653Well movie broke, so now it is Moonbeam City
>>1227678I have no idea what that means
>>1227726Movie sux, watching TV show instead.
I kind of want a bin that's just girl talk about her between the girls
>>1228630Yeeesss, I've been wanting this so much, especially now that they've all experienced the noodle doodle.
>>1228630Can we have this please?
>>1228630Hard mode: No discussion of Herb.
>>1229112>Discussion of horse-d commences.
>>1228630I'd actually like to hear a conversation with all the girls that isn't focused on Herb. I like to see them become better friends.
>>1229708>>1229112>>1229214We need a herb talk bin, & girl talk bin
>>1229788I agree. I want to learn more about all the girls, so I wonder what they would talk about left to their on devices.
[Not able to run. Thread tomorrow. Sorry. blame all the people on my life that can't get their fucking shit together and always need Gobble to fix it. Also sorry I'm bitter, bad mood.]
>>1231158Sounds like a very good reason to be in a bad mood. Hang in there.
>>1231158hope things get better
>>1231158Hope you feel better, gobble. We still love you.
>>1231158I l u bby.
>>1231158I just delivered a pizza to a new father at the hospital. Everybody needs someone to lean on, some more than others. You should be proud of yourself that you're a dependable part of the lives of those close to you. You know where your limits are. Love you.
>>1231973it's annoying to be in that position though, being dependable is all well and good but it makes you wonder "if I can get my shit together then why can't everybody else" fixing other people's shit is a draining and thankless job.
>>1232002Like I said, you gotta know your own limits. And it is because it is hard that you can be proud doing it. Not that any of us know any specifics, of course. But we do know that Gobble makes a point to be here for us, and I think the least I can do is make sure that's not thankless too.Also, can I just say how hyped I am that Gobbs learned recycle? That was the Munchlax-exclusive move I was most wanting. Now he can really milk that last Citrus berry. Gobbs has really just been a best lately.
>>1232102it's not quiet the same thing, Gobble doesn't help us when we are in need they provide something we want. People in need I find are rarely thankful when you help them, and the whole experience tends to be mentally draining and unpleasant. At least in my own experience.I'm thankful for what Gobble does as well, but if it was something I needed instead of something I wanted I would probably be too busy thinking of myself to be thankful; it's human nature.
>>1232134Okay, I think I get it. I'm younger and I probably haven't been on that side of things so much yet.Still, I'm probably getting away from myself. What training are we wanting to do? I myself am a sucker for nailing down levelup moves. Screech for Gobbs, magical leaf for Bella, etc.
>>1232196stat training is also a good option, we lack a lot of the diversity our old team had.Zappy with his broken special attack and defenseDestiny with her insane dodgeVlad with his crazy speedLevi with her broken attack statWe're 28 threads in and none of our team really excel at anything.
>>1232213>We're 28 threads in and none of our team really excel at anything.But Mace excels at being really old.
>>1232213Well this quest is also going at a much slower pace. We have trained almost every day.I think moves for Bella and Dice. HP for Gobs and Energy Evasion for Mace.
Hmm, so we should be able to grab:Bella: Poison Sting(easy), Magical Leaf(Probable), Cut (already started)Dice: Flail (probable)Gobble:Defense Curl(easy), Screech (Probable) [Odor Sleuth and Recycle need to be added to the pastebin]Mace: Smack Down (probable) [Mud-Slap is in the pastebin twice]I think we can get those marked (easy) down really quickly. If we decide to try for something more long-term and exotic, I'd like to see us teach Mace Gravity. I understand people will probably want to focus on energy training and meditation, which is cool too.Come to think of it though, we should probably have Bella tutor our other 'mon in the way of Toxic, assuming TM moves can work like that.
>>1232335I really think Hana's Tirtuga or however that is spelt and Dice should train together. Pray for Aqua Jet.Mace and Gobble don't have many other good moves so I say we should focus on stats for now.
>>1232335I admit I'm not the most knowledgeable about Pokemon moves, but why are you interested in Mace learning Gravity?
>>1232548[If I had to guess, it's that Gravity is one of those niche moves that works well with the quest format but doesn't see love in competitive metagame. It grounds flying pokemon, negates effects like Magnet Rise, prevents stuff like Fly or Hi Jump Kick, and in general just ruins some stalling strategies or fucks up some flying Pokemon's strategy.Thanks for the kind words everyone. I always feel terrible cancelling. I'm looking forward to the next thread and also made some notes for a girl talk bin that may or may not end in lewds.So far we have:JanebinRule 63 binGirl-talk binAny subject or other recommendations always welcome.]
>>1232562Just stay awesome, you lovable turkey you. Also thanks for answering my question!
>>1232562any chance of the girl talk being moved up to before the 63 bin? also girl talk turning into lewd would be great!
>>1232572I feel a strange jealousy when i think about the girls lewding without Herb. Doc, I think I'm too invested in these fiction characters!
>>1232562>>1232572Not to say I don't think the girl talk bin with lewd wouldn't be hot. It sounds very hot indeed.
>>1232548Several reasons, actually.1. Gravity powers are kickass.2. Gravity multiplies the accuracy of all moves by 5/3. This means that all moves with an accuracy of at least 60% now hit 100% of the time, namely Stone Edge, or negating evasion increases.3. None of our pokemon can fly (Mace's limited fuel doesn't count to me yet.) By grounding flyers, we can prevent them from staying out of our range.4. We can cancel/block bounce, fly, splash, jump kick, high jump kick, magnet rise, telekinesis, sky drop, and flying press.5. We can prevent flying types from avoiding Bella's toxic spikes6. We can hit flying types and levitators with ground moves.7. We can maybe cheese it to suppress stealth rocks, which normally float in the air.8. Mace is a little guy and he'll likely be fighting bigger, heavier opponents who will be more affected and less likely to be able to move and more likely to get stuck. *cough*Lairon*cough*9. It will probably make sandstorm hurt like a bitch.10. We can train under 10X gravity Dragonball style.11. What if Mace is upside-down when he uses it? Does that make anti-gravity?12. I have a mental image of us falling off a cliff and being saved by anti-gravity.13. Did I mention it was kickass?14. Throwing the projectile trajectory of our opponents attacks off.Basically, it's pretty damn versatile.Also, I really want to see if recycle works on rare candy.>>1232562I'm tempted to request bins anytime character interactions happen off-screen. Hana talking about lewd things with Val. Hana talking about Mainlanders customs with Keira. Whatever was suggested is going on between Val and Laki when Val asked to sleep with us. Jane saying hurtful things to Laki. Jane's internal decision process to re-classify us from reverse-flash tier misery architect to rival. Jane spreading rumors about us to Val/Polu. It seems like you have concrete things in mind, or maybe you just know how to tease. But bits like the meditation bins are so goddamn juicy to me. Even more than a lot of Lewds.
>>1232597We could probably combine Gravity with Rock Wrecker or Stone edge for some sort of special move, Asteroid Impact maybe? Blackhole Blitz?
>>1232600Have Mace zip up in the air, use gravity to immobilize/slow them, then zip down in the gravity with energy boost/aiming. Maybe use tackle on impact.My god.The planetary piledriver.
>>1232597>But bits like the meditation bins are so goddamn juicy to me. Even more than a lot of Lewds.this anon, I like this guy he gets it
>>1232562Gobble, any chance we can get a short write up of Val's thoughts on her night with Herb?
>>1232600[You absolutely can. I want to encourage more combos and things. I think one thing I might try in the next combat is that high rolls (not necessarily in crit range) or 'setup votes' allow for options about a followup move. Also the reverse, where using a move like Tackle lets you hit and run behind cover for extra defense/evasion]>>1232597>>1232572[Absolutely. I didn't want to get into scenes without the MC too much because they'd feel a bit masturbatory (in a QM sense, not literal sense) but if people enjoy that, I'm very happy to do it.]
>>1232611Oh fuck, and set up w/ iron defenses so we don't wreck our own shit.>>1232612>>1232619My respected peers of a particular range phenotypes.>>1232620I'm sure we'd be happy to watch you masturbate! In a literary sense.
>>1232620nah you're fine on that front, from what I have seen your respect of player agency is leaps and bounds above what is the average for QM's.You would have to fall a long way in order for your work to become masturbatory in that sense, and I for one would be sure to inform you on your way down if it ever happened.tl;dr relax you're fine
>>1232620Don't worry Gobble, I'm super interested to hear more thoughts and interaction of your girls, so please feel free to write as you want. You never be too masturbatory for us.
>>1232623>>1232627>>1232634[I am the luckiest QM to have such great players. Alright. Prepare of side stories galore.]
>>1232643Truly, we are blessed this day.
>>1232643I love side stories, thank you Gobble.in fact if you ever have an off day where you don't want to deal with main story stuff some side stories would be a great replacement thread.can we get some side stories of Kat every now and then? just slice of life stuff after the quest ended with her and the gang doing stuff as adults would be coolWe love you Gobble!
[Any subjects you'd like the girls to discuss?]
>>1232620>but if people enjoy that, I'm very happy to do it.]I'm surprised you think that people wouldn't.
>>1232658I'd like to see Hana get all awkward after revealing her power level and the other girls getting confused by it. Maybe Laki gets it or Val since they both seem to know about mainland culture.I'd like to see Val and Keira swapping make up tips and the others secretly taking notes.For Laki I'd actually like her to lower her guard a bit and may be get all self-conscious and start bullying one of the girls that noticed or something like that. Sorry none of these are really subjects per say.
>>1232658General things, interests, gossip, Dic-Herb, pokemon.as long as they have fun I'll read it. Heck I'll read it anyway.
>>1232658anything is fine, you know what you're doing so it'll turn out good independent of topic.
>>1232666>so are dicks usually that big or what?also keira asking advice indirectly about her issue with Herb
>>1232658Boys.Especially our best boy, but Polu too. Val's had a boyfriend before. Have the others? Apparently Jane's been burned before romantically. It'd be interesting to get their opinions on length vs girth vs the motion of the ocean. Now that I give it some thought though, pokemon training. I want to hear about how Laki's bonding with Wailmer. If Val is considering any further battling/ gyms. A tm is a tempting prize, especially if it would be appealing in a contest. I wanna know what sort of personality Tropius has. I wanna know if Togepi is getting more disciplined. I wanna know how Dewpider was caught. Hell, I want them to all swap stories about how they met/caught their pokemon. I WANNA KNOW WHAT KEIRA WILL DO IF NINCADA WANTS TO EVOLVE!I want Val to do their hair and Keira to read their auras.I want Laki and Keira to make the others jealous of their massage times. (Because I want to be asked to rub the others down too, especially Hana's stumps.)I want Keira to feel awkward about being treated as holy and other by Laki/Polu.I want Hana to pull Laki aside and tell her what nicknames cross the line or dredge up sour memories.I want Laki to get trussed up in a sundress.I really really want to see Val and Laki's will-they-won't-they developments. (I'm conflicted about whether I want them to get together. As long as Val doesn't make a decision she regrets, whichever that would be.)I want all the girls in priestess masks. ( assuming that's not blaspheme)I want Hana to introduce Keira to video games.I'm gonna be honest, I don't know a lot about girl talk.Overall, you have a great opportunity to flesh out both your characters and setting, and we're probably going to be eager to eat it up as fast as you can produce it. But you're going to have to make a judgement call about what things should be revealed to the players in real-time in-character, and what doesn't need to be. I feel like you've got a good handle on that though, and even when we do know some things Herb doesnt, between you and us we play in-character pretty damn well.Also, hottest of pictures. If you've got sauce, I'd like to review it.
>>1232658oh also forgot, boob comparisons. I'm not sur eifd that actually happens, but it's hot.you're a girl, Gobble, you know what girls talk about, just make it sound natural
>>1232686>I want Laki to get trussed up in a sundress.All my yes It's also not a will they won't they, because as long as herb hasn't picked a waifu, they'll both be available. >>1232658Not so much talk, but them doing their hair and nails would be great, typical girl stuff.
>>1232691Unless we play matchmaker. I'm not advocating it. But if Val asks our advice as to whether or not she should go for gold, I would like to say something like "go for it if it's what you want, and if you feel like you're not ready or don't want a casual encounter, feel good with that choice."
>>1232695You realize people without noble intentions are going to abuse your sentimentality, all for furthering their own waifu war goal.
>>1232686I love this kind of obsession, even if the topics of the bin really don't matter to me. You are crazy in the best ways anon.
>>1232697If I have one defining character trait, it's an excessive amount of patience.If I had a second, it'd be a propensity for extremely, usually detrimentally high or low levels of interest.Those are actually things I need to work on. But it does my heart good to know I can be productively obsessive, too.
>>1232701Clearly you need to put those talents to use writing more smut.
>>1232695If we play matchmaker I'm going with Val/Hana. Laki can go find a nice islander boy like Polu.>>1232738Supporting this anon. They have a good idea.
Generally character development & funny situations would be good for the girls, things like laki picking trying to pick up beauty tips from val/kiera while being non chalant/underhanded about it, hana trying to increase her confidence & ending up peer pressured into climbing a high tree with kiera & falling, or having an arm wrestle with laki (robo arm vs muscle girl). favourite pokemon, childhood stories, herb talk being about MORE than his horse d, & the lewdness being an undercurrent of the conversation about his food or battle training, or how weird he acts, Maybe get on the topic of jane from laki, & end up discussing wether or not she's a paranoid bitter hothead, or if her theory on herb being a manipulative sociopath is true? (surely NOBODY could be that airheaded gentle & yet badass & with such a huge di-), make plans together, ask val asking about things to do across the islandsJust a fun sidestory for character development, interaction between characters we dont usually see, aspirations, how they think & feel, & general lulz, pizzaanon had plenty of good ideas
>>1232955>>1232686I want them to have a really girly sleepover, love the idea of makeup from kiera, & dressing up from val, with hana being self concious, laki rejecting it out of embarrasment but pressured into it & loving it, & kiera being not fully understanding & just playing about, Shit would be so cash Maybe it could be set during the time they were waiting for herb to get back to the yacht before they got worried & kiera went out looking?
I do care about one thing now that I've thought about it more, if it's not too much to ask I would like it to be canon. Non-canon things are fine too but only when they are lewd.This is just my personal preference.
>>1232658Kiera asking Val and Hana about main land stuff would be nice. "Why do you call it mac and cheese if all your adding to the pasta is a powder?" Just innocent stuff.
>>1232658>>1232988Speaking of which the reverse would also be nice, Val and Hana wondering about island specific traditions or anything cool to look forward to on the other islands that they may not have heard about yet.
>>1232658I'd like to see them discuss their own Pokemon. Like if Laki is having trouble with Wailmer, Hana might suggest something since he loves water types. I figure during the main quest having interactions with every person and their Pokemon might be much, but little stuff like how Jane praised her Fletchinder and how others interact with their Pokemon help things feel natural.
>>1232658Laki fantasizing about Herb wearing a naked apron
Training Dayhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Island%20Adventure%20Questhttps://twitter.com/GobbleQMCharacter info pastebin in progress: http://pastebin.com/iB0tb7rzDice cheat sheet: http://pastebin.com/994WTT3gGeneral 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. Infact, you can do more than one move in a row like the anime, but so can your opponents.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Totodile)Badges: 2
>>1233540Oh yaaaaaah! It's Poketime!
Finally caught up on all of Kat's and John's adventures just in time for a new one. Life is good, boys. Amazing quests, Gobble.
>>1233551Good for you anon, what was your favorite moment?My body is ready
“You’re a good guy, Herb. But you’re too nice. Some broken girl is going to bring you all her problems and you’ll keep trying to fix them until you’re all used up, burnt out, and bitter. I don’t ever want to see that happen to you. When you settle down with a girl, make sure she’s a sweet as you, okay?”You lose yourself in thought for a moment. You probably should be training right now, considering the commitment you made and the big breakfast you have to work off. You want to be really prepared for the next challenge.You glance back over. Laki has a smile on her face, but she quickly forces it away. “What?” She pushes you relatively gently. “Stop it! What?”>”Someone like you?”>”Someone like Hana?”>”Someone like Valerie?”>”Someone like Keira?”>”Someone like Jane?”>”Someone like Polu?”>Ask for advice on training>Want to battle?>Something else
>>1233566>>”Someone like you?”IT'S TIME!
>>1233566>>”Someone like you?”If she starts stuttering or blushing just start running
>>1233566>>”Someone like you?”
>>1233566>Sweet like you?Herb should say this to Laki.
>>1233566>”Someone like Jane?”Although I like the idea of making Laki blush by picking her I'll stick to my guns.
>>1233566>”Someone like you?”
Also hi Gobble hope you're having a good day so far!
>>1233566>”Someone like Jane?”Because her reaction to this comment would be as fun as telling her she's sweet.
>>1233582The fact you voted for that un-ironically is really cute anon, I like jane too
>>1233588[Great! Thanks! Much better. That was the pissiest I've been in a long time.]
>>1233555From the last quest, I'd either go with training with Vernon or the finish of the match against Robert. That double 100 was amazing.For Island Quest, I'd say falling for the curse prank near the beginning.
>>1233566>Someone like Keira?
>>1233610The training had a lot of good moments like capturing Oberon and the battle against Raistlin. My favorite was the last battle, Kat vs Robin the beam struggle finish I was on the edge of my seat waiting for Gobble's posts although Robin vs Violet was it's own kind of satisfying.As for this one the fire gym battle was pretty hot.
This vote doesn't decide who we're ultimately going for does it? Because I wouldn't like that.
>>1233630[Nah. It's nowhere near a route-lock.]
>>1233629I don't know how I forgot about Violet getting outplayed by Robin. That was amazing.
>>1233632Okay then cool.back to being a lurker
>>1233630Yes it is, we've won we've won!!!!
>>1233651Don't bully lurkers, anon.
>>1233651Don't be rude to your fellow anons, anon. This is a place of butts and food, not gloating. We leave that to the alternate universe where people control Jane.
>>1233677Great I'm now picturing this image with Dice in sharpedos place, Bella as gardevoir and Gobble or Mace as the sceptile
>>1233667>the alternate universe where people control JaneHoly fuck that is a great idea. Can we get some threads from other characters' perspective? Just a couple of them, at some point where we are in different islands and such, to see how they're doing, getting more exposition for them and all.So far we only get to know their thoughts in post-thread discussion anyway, I think it would be pretty sweet.
"Someone like you?"“Psh! Come on.” She pushes you again. “Don’t be sarcastic. It doesn’t suit you.”“I mean it.” You blink. “You’re really sweet, Laki.” It just comes out of you easily. You can’t say the word ‘no’ without feeling your heart pound out of your body, you can’t say a lot of what you think sometimes, but this just feels natural. It’s a statement of fact.She slowly turns a deep shade of red. The sound of the wind in the trees becomes the loudest thing around.“W-what are...” She turns her face away, covers it with one arm, and sloppily reaches out with the other at you. “Don’t look! Just..shut up. Some dirt flew in my eye.”“Want me to take a look?”“I...no. I'm fine.” She bends over, wipes her face, and looks back to you. She’s still red and looks like she ate of bunch of spicy food. She gets you in a headlock again before you can say anything. “You’re a real jerk idiot moron, you know that?”“What’d I do-” She cuts you off with a face full of breast. Then she tickles you without mercy. You do your best to fight her off, but you’re still sore from all that training and you can’t see. There may or may not be a part of you that doesn’t want to fight too hard, considering your position.She eventually lets you go. “A teasing for a teasing, Soft Hands. Next time you say something stupid like that, I’ll really let you have it.”She doesn’t give you a chance to respond. She hitches her bag up and starts heading off. “Go train.” You can’t see her smile, but you can hear it in her voice.You don’t understand girls at all. You thought it was just a simple compliment.You unwrinkle your clothes as much as you can, and turn to your pokemon. You guess it’s time to train. You bet if you concentrate on one goal for everyone, you’ll get more progress.>Let’s each learn a new move>Let’s all work on stats today>Everyone should work on their unique training (Mace’s energy control, Dice’s drunken master, etc)>Let’s all get good battle experience with some free for all training>Go look for a trainer to battle.

If you guys are serious about the moves Ice Punch or Aqua Jet would be my suggestions for Dice, Poison Sting is good for Bella but I'd also push for Toxic, Smack Down or Bulldoze for Mace and for Gobble Body Slam or Rest to later progress into snore and sleep talk training
>>1233710>Let’s each learn a new moveIs our not-date with Jane today?
>>1233757She said she would find us.
>>1233755Bella already has toxic. I like going in order on the levelup move list, because those moves can usually be learned quickly and you get good bang/buck that way. I'd like to get >>1232335 out of the way before starting on anything exotic.>>1233757She said she'd find us when she felt like it. Apparently she's keeping tabs on our movements, which is a little bit concerning.
>>1233769That's fine, screech would be really good for Gobble hell Dice too is Gobble could help Dice with it down the line. I just love using that rest sleep talk combo especially since we aren't hampered by 4 moves.
>>1233770Oh, no doubt that's a tasty combo, and I'm excited for it. But those moves will come easier as a snorlax. I like the way you think with having Gobbs help Dice with Screech.Now that we have access to Recycle, do we want to give Gobble a Citrus Berry or the Silk Scarf during the gym battle?
“Let’s all learn a new move. We’ll work together, and that way we can all help each other out, okay? If there's time after that, we'll figure out what else to do.”Everyone seems to be agreeable with that. Mace offers a salute, you think. Gobble looks back from trying to shake a fruit loose from a tree and nods. Belladonna stands on a rock like she’s making a proclamation that she won’t need help. Dice chews on a stick.“Alright team. In that case, here’s what we’re going to learn today. Gobble, your move will be...”>Screech>Stockpile>Fling>Body Slam>Something else
>>1233794>Body SlamI'm imagining that by the end of the quest Gobbles will have an entire wardrobe, like for fighting he enjoys wearing a sumo outfit.
>>1233794>StockpileShenaniganlax is best lax
>>1233794>Something else>Defense CurlQuick and easy.
>>1233794>Body SlamWith this we'll have a good, reliable attack for a long-ass time.
>>1233794>>Body SlamA solid stab move with great longevity
>>1233794>Body SlamYeah reliable attack first
>>1233794>Body SlamTime to swing that girth around.
“Body Slam! I know you can do it, Gobble. It’s just like Tackle, but, well, more.”He looks up at the hanging fruit high in the tree. He takes a few steps back, then uses Tackle.“Yeah, sort of like that, but more with the belly." You try to extend your stomach and smack it. "I’ll come back around if give you some tips, okay?He looks back and nods, then gives it another go.You stroke your chin and look down at Mace. His face twitches a few times as he listens in to the sounds of the nearby forest.“Mace. How are you feeling?”He tilts his body up at you. Hard to read, that Mace. But you’re getting better. He’s up for whatever you want to throw at him.“Alright. In that case, let’s work on...”>Stealth Rock>Smack Down>Explosion>Gravity>Tri-Attack>Something else
>>1233899>Stealth RockSneaky pebbles are always fun
>>1233899>GravityI highly doubt we'll nail it down today, but goddamn this is tasty.
>>1233899>around if givefirst time I've caught a Butt live.>GravityWonder what it'd be like if Mace mastered his energy bursts and could eventually just float around like his Solrock cousins.
I just checked the tab and saw 64 missed comments. I thought we weren't running today!>>1233899>GravityNot that my vote counts for much on these, but I've been sold on the idea thematically. Mace being an asshole flying around while everything else kneels on the ground beholding his lasery glory tickles the shit out of me.
>>1233899>GravityThis'll be fun.
>>1233899God imagine sneaky pebbles and gravity, smack people right onto them.
>>1233963A fine butt indeed.
>>1233963>>1233984Very fine indeed
>>1233949Totally ready for Inception battles.
“Yours is going to be a bit different. I read about this move before, Gravity. It’ll be really helpful against flying types. In fact, I bet it would have been handy with the Fire Gym.”You describe the move to him in more detail, and set him some room in some tall grass. His task is to use gravity to flatten the grass around him. You walk over to Bella, who is confidently boasting to Dice about something atop her rock.“Belladonna. How’s my beautiful little flower today?”She beams and leaps into your arms. She’s gone from braggart to cuddly, adorable, and helpless in a second.“What move are we going to teach you today?” You poke her where her nose would be. Huh. You wonder how she smells.>Poison Jab and Poison Sting>Magical Leaf>Sweet Scent>Venoshock>Petal Blizzard>Bullet Seed>Something else
>>1234049>Poison Jab and Poison StingGood, physical poison coverage will do her well, I think. Magical leaf for next time.
>>1234049>>VenoshockShe already knows Toxic yeah? This is an awesome follow up.
>>1234049Poison Jab and Poison StingNeed some handy attacks.
>>1234049>Poison Jab and Poison Sting
>>1234049>VenoshockHits pretty well even without the extra boost.
>>1234049>>Poison Jab and Poison Sting
“How’s poison Jab and Poison Sting sound?”She sticks out two pointy thorns to show you she can handle learning it. You almost drop her in surprise. “Careful! Don’t prick me with anything poison.”She giggles. You weren’t joking. You set her down. “Your task is straightforward. Punch through this rock, okay? I’ll come back and check how you’re doing.”She reaches up at you pathetically and makes a noise. You lean over and give her a little kiss on the head. She glows with happiness, but when she realizes Dice is watching she makes a lot of angry noises until he wanders away.You go catch up with Dice. He seems to have forgotten all about it already and is just wandering around looking at things. He pokes a stick.“Let’s see, what would be a good move for you right now?”>Flail>Aqua Tail>Focus Punch, just like Gobble>Mimic>Screech
>>1234241>Aqua JetPriority priority priority.
>>1234241>MimicIt's too tempting.Plus, maybe this will help him pick up moves like screech/focus punch/toxic from gobble/bella later down the line.
>>1234241>>FlailDang I love this croc
>>1234241>MimicMostly because I think it works with his drunken fist inspired fighting style
>>1234241>Aqua TailYeah it's really strong.
>>1234241>Aqua TailDamn i'm so late, was hoping to get here to suggest Sandstorm for Mace
>>1234241>Aqua TailBella is adorable
>>1234241>>MimicTotodile aren't supposed to learn it at all, but okay?Stuff like Screech and Focus Punch (and Chip Away and eventually Fling) are probably best learned in a joint training session so Gobble can help out.>>1234305I think Double Team could be fun for that. I imagine it would also make him a pain to read.
>>1234364Man Jane hasn't battled Dice, I seriously can't wait for her reactions to his style
>>1234390>"What'd you do to that poor Totodile he looks like he's drunk!">"No he isn't! I made sure to keep my sherry awa- Wait where did I put it again?">"Aaah!!!"
You snap your fingers. “Alright, Dice. Here’s the plan! We’re going to learn Aqua Tail!” You really try to pump him up.But he stares blankly at you.“Y’know, a water move that uses your tail. See?” You make whooshing noises and wag like you have one. Bella laughs and it makes you more self-conscious than you’d like to admit.Mace seems to get it though, and he starts swinging his tail around and walking backwards.“Well, a bit like that. Kinda. We’ll get it.” You set him up a task to take down a bunch of upright bamboo. Now that you look at it, this island seems to have a lot of it. He gets to work smacking it with his tail, but doesn’t make much progress due to the restrictive spacing. That’s okay, that just means they’ll last longer and he can get more practice out of it.You sit down on a tree stump for a moment and look around to see how everyone else is doing. They just started, so you don’t want to pressure them too much by hovering over their shoulders.A caw grabs your attention. Your head snaps up.“Murkrow! How are you?”It caws and flies down, setting it’s bag full of goodies on the ground. It looks like he trusts you enough to show you some goods to choose from, and make an offer.You lean over and reach to pick one up to examine it, but he caws and pecks at your hand. You retract it before he can make contact, though,“Alright. Alright. But you get better results with honey!” Well, that depends on the dish, but he knows what you mean.>Offer your shiny but high value coins for that TM, whatever it is.>Offer your spare Sunny Day for whatever’s in that small metal box>Bella’s Pin Missiles can be pretty shiny.

>>1234489>Offer your shiny but high value coins for that TM, whatever it is.>Offer your spare Sunny Day for whatever’s in that small metal boxWhy not both?
>>1234489>Offer your shiny but high value coins for that TM, whatever it is.>Offer your spare Sunny Day for whatever’s in that small metal boxOpen to both of these trades. Honestly as long as he's fine accepting TMs if they're shiny enough its not like there's much risk; we can just trade it back later for something else.
>>1234489>Offer your shiny but high value coins for that TM, whatever it is.Remember that we got our first Sunny Day TM from crowbro already; it likely won't hold much value.

“I’ll give you this shiny new TM, and these shiny coins, for that box and that other TM.”It considers your offer. It gave you a Sunny Day TM before, but it wasn’t very shiny. And shininess seems like a big part of what it considers valuable. Colourfulness seems to help, too.It makes a grunt-like noise and drags the items over. It keeps stopping to look back and make sure you’re not trying any funny business. You place the coins and TM down and let him take them away.With the exchange done, Murkrow gives you a respectful nod.“Want to stay for l-”It caws and flies off.“I guess not. Okay. See you around!” You wave.You put your attention back on your pokemon. It doesn’t seem like anyone is making too much progress. Gobble is tossing himself at the tree. Mace is pulling down the grass with gravity, but it doesn’t stay down and when he relaxes it they blades just spring back up. Bella isn’t doing much to the stone with her jabs, and Dice’s tail doesn’t have enough room to wind up a powerful swing in that bamboo cluster.As you stand back and watch, it becomes clear that they could switch jobs and complete all four tasks much quicker. But should you have them do that? They might get stronger by doing it the hard way. Of course, they might learn more about teamwork if they take care of each other’s jobs.>Tell them to switch tasks. They’ll be done in no time once they do.>Drop some hints to switch tasks, but let them figure it out.>Keep encouraging them.

>>1234710Hmm this is a tough one.>Tell them to switch task. They'll be done in no time once they do.Personally i think them getting the basics would be best. We can work on mastery after they have it down.

>>1234710>>Keep encouraging them. They’ll do it the hard way but master their moves well because of itwe don't have them out at the same time that often for battles, usually have them go out in succession so teamwork seems slightly less useful than getting the fundamentals of combat moves down.
>>1234710>Keep encouraging them. They’ll do it the hard way but master their moves well because of itExcept maybe Gobble, if there's any water around could we try to get him to make the biggest splash with a belly flop to train body slam?
>>1234732It's like you want Gobble to break the forest with his gut or something.

Also, before we forget....<
“Keep at it, guys! I believe in you! Don’t get discouraged if it’s hard right now, it’ll get easier!”The team responds to that a bit and gets a little more energy in their efforts. It doesn’t last forever, though. You walk around and give pointers here and there. You have Bella attack in a quick one-two so her poison penetrates quickly into the small chips of stone. You tell Dice to move the rest of his body first so there’s a lot of momentum in his tail swing. Gobble’s is trickier, but the whole point of Body Slam is to slam onto something with your belly, so you suggest he try angling his leap to the side if he’s going to hit against the tree. Mace is hard too, but you think Mace’s problem is that he needs to just master doing it on a smaller area first and then expand after he gets that down.Oh yeah! You open the box and take a look. Earrings! Fancy looking earrings! Wow. They look intricately carved and have two blue gems of some kind. You think they’re not expensive gems, but you’re not sure.Everyone’s been at it for a long time. “Alright. Break time, guys.” You serve up a filling lunch with what you have available. Gobble’s been really eating a lot lately and every time you think you packed too much, he proves you wrong.It feels like the team has made a lot of progress. You can keep training and perfect it today, or maybe you should leave it for now. You sort of want to keep going because they’re on a roll and Laki really got you pumped about it, but is there such a thing as overtraining? You might be going too soft on them, and if that happens, they won’t be prepared. Plus there’s Polu and Jane to worry about. Their talk about rivals and battling is starting to get to you a little.>Train train train! We’ll get strong!>Call Jane and see if she wants to meet for coffee>Go shopping for the rest of the day>Go back to the yacht and relax or sleep. You’re pooped>Something else

>>1234908>Train train train! We’ll get strong!
>>1234908>>Train train train! We’ll get strong!Though I'm also tempted by the relaxing option, it has been a pretty busy day after all. Wonder what would happen if we taught Hana how to do massages and she could use her vibrate function as well.
>>1234908>Train train train! We’ll get strong!Let's finish the moves.
>>1234960Hmm i'm intrigued by the possibility of teaching Hana
>>1234908>Call Jane and see if she wants to meet for coffeeMy main questions are what the earrings are made of, and did they belong to anyone else?
>>1234983I'd be more suprised if they weren't stolen from someone or from a shop somewhere.
>>1234983don't look a gift horsea in the mouth anon
>>1234983Jane had blue earrings iirc, cause we recommended the color to her. I hope they're not hers...
>>1234908>Call Jane and see if she wants to meet for coffeeNow to wait until she gets angry at us because the earrings are the equivalent of a wedding ring on these islands. It'll be worth it.
“I think that’s it for now everyone. Great work! We’ll pick the rest up later.”They all flop over. You’re glad you gave them that extra energy food, or you suspect they’d be drained a lot earlier. They’ve been working hard. Sometimes you find that you get a lot of progress on something when you step away for a bit and come back to it fresh.You stretch, then call up Jane to see if she’d like to grab that coffee. Hopefully she trusts you enough to not accuse you of drugging hers or something. You don’t want to sound like a jerk, but on some occasions, rarely, that girl can really steam your noodles and you just want to tell her to suck a lemon!You stop yourself from going down that line of thought. You don’t want to get bitter. You ring her up and listen for an answer.“You.” She must have your ID programed in.You ask if she’s free for coffee and nearby. She confirms both, then tells you to hang on for a minute. You overhear her in the pokedex. “You got lucky, Polu. I have a d-...an appointment to go to, or I’d show you what real strength is all about.”“Guess we’re taking a rain check then. Spiritomb, sand down. We’ll battle next time.”Is that Polu you hear? “Hi Polu!” You shout into your pokedex.“Is that Herb?” You can barely hear him ask. “Tell him I say hi!”“I can hear you loud and clear. How are you doing?”“Good, bro! We got a lot of training done. I’m totally psyched to show you. What are up t-”“Enough! Call him yourself later!” Jane snaps. “Mainlander.” She speaks to you loudly and clearly. “Meet me at the following cafe in precisely 40 minutes.” She texts you an address and landmarks to help find it. It’s a surprisingly thorough set of instructions. She sure is organized.You gather everyone up and start heading into town. You left your other clothes you usually carry in the yacht, and are completely unprepared for a fashion emergency. You catch yourself in the reflection of a shop window. You look okay. Not great, but fine.>Stop in really quick and get some fancy clothes. Look spiffy.>You’re fine. Just go.>Scruff yourself up a little. Try to look like you don’t care at all.>Something else

>>1235080>Scruff yourself up a little. Try to look like you don’t care at all.go for the scruffy adventurer look>Spiritomb, sand down.butt please
>>1235080>You’re fine. Just go.She'd over-analyze everything Herb would wear anyways, might as well go with the least amount of hassle.
>>1235080>Spiritomb, sand downThat's a butt, I believe.> You're fine. Just go.
>>1235080>Stop in really quick and get some fancy clothes. Look spiffy.always be fashionable
>>1235080>You're fine. Straighten up a bit No need to go full on if its not a date...yet.
>>1235080>>You’re fine. Just go.I remember Jane specifically not wanting us to dress up for the date. Though I imagine a quick shower or something would be a good idea.
>>1235080>You’re fine. Just go.Maybe we can just wash our face real quick and fix our hair. Did sound like we did a lot of activity, but easy stuff we can do once we get to the cafe.
You’re fine. You don’t want to overthink it. For some reason you really want Jane to like you, or at least not hate you, but you don’t think dressing fancy or playing weird games where you try to look like you don’t care will do that. Even fashion can’t solve everything.You stop into a shop where you can get a pen and paper, and clean yourself up a bit in the washroom. Nothing fancy, just not dirty from your training. You head across the street with your pokemon in tow.“You’re early. But I knew you would be.” Jane is already there with crossed legs and sunglasses. She’s sipping on a drink, then sets it down. There’s one there waiting for you too. “It’s hot. She just put it down.”She’s looking pretty fashionable. You think you recognize the brand of the clothes she’s wearing. That black turtleneck really compliments her figure.>Hey! Is that another badge? Any tips for the gym?>Nice clothes! Looking snazzy!>Don’t compliment.
