Welcome to the Maho region! A vibrant and incredibly diverse region filled to the brim with new Pokemon and new adventures! As a young man who's never been on his own Pokemon journey before, it's about high time you go out and see the world!

Can we pop in to the local pokemart, maybe nab a couple of pokeballs? Surely we've got at least a bit of pocket change on us. After that,
>I want to see POWERFUL Pokemon, time to go straight into the woods.
>I should check out my Cubcoal and properly get acquainted as his trainer.
Shall we take Cubcoal out of his pokeball, and have him walk with us on a hike? Bonding experience and pokemon hunting excursion all in one. Plus it'll probably be good to have Cubcoal immediately on call if we run into a wild pokemon.
>>
>>2421408
Also, that shirt, my god, it's perfect.
>>
>>2421498
Check the pastebin we have 5 pokeballs and 3000 Pokedollars (Based mom & dad) which I think is enough for a little bit. But I can totally agree on the whole letting out Cubcoal thing (HGSS ftw)
>>
>>2421522
Ah, did we? My apologies then. Skip straight to the nature hike then, I guess. Oh yeah, didn't Professor Aspen say during the last thread that there might be some people around Claribar Town that might be willing to accompany us on our glorious, region spanning adventure? Will probably want to check that out later, maybe after the hike.

I don't know about the other anons but I would rather we travel alone. Idk I just like the idea of a man and his pokemon against it all but that might be just me.

Does it know the concept of grabbing and throwing?
>>
>>2422378
I mean it probably grabs berries to eat and I guess the only thing we've seen it throw is a tantrum but it should know how to
>>
>>2422383
Swatting berries off a bush and eating it off the floor is a bit different from grasping a tail. One generally needs a thumb, while the other doesnt.

And throwing is a fairly complex manuever for a creature that could just set things on fire and call it a day.

>>2422350
>>2422358
>>2422383
"Scratch" and "Tackle" are basic, actions that consist of sentences explaining what to do are not. We should hold off on more complex commands until we get a chance to actually train with Cubcoal. Not just grind on wild Pokemon, but train, and practice maneuvers together without enemies around.
>>
>>2422345
Scratch till death!
>>
>>2422394
As you can see in the pic Cubcoal's hand follows anime logic and can still hold things despite it logically not being able to. It's shouldn't be able to hold the berry like that with it's stubs so it should be able to grip things especially with 2 hands. I also don't see how throwing is a complex maneuver even though babies do it all the time but breathing fire, dodging attacks (especially when there's sand in your eyes), and understanding and reacting to english(?) in the heat of battle isn't

>>2422431
Anon it's 1 sentence I can understand if it was like 3 sentences long but it clearly isn't and the content isn't amazingly complex compared to other things Cubcoal has done with no visible strain. I would like to mix up battle because I think the whole "use tackle until it dies" thing is boring and the reason I have to take breaks from the games so I don't get bored and now that we have the ability to choose exacly what we do I want to spice things up a little. And as for training Cubcoal I defiantly agree I hate grinding and always would rather the training they do in the anime

We really can't know until we try, let's not worry so much about failure, it's about learning together we our pokemon. If we lose a battle it's not the end of the world.

This anon put it amazingly. How can you ignore such a beautiful statement anons? How?
>>
>>2422686
Yeah, but lets get a backup pokemon before trying complex maneuvers. Im not keen on getting mugged by a wild rat thing.
>>
>>2422686
Yeah, but how do we know it's not gonna attack US once it kicks Cubcoals ass? I don't want to be chased out of the woods by this region's gods damned vermin pokemon, that's a terrible way to start an adventure.
>>
>>2422724
>>2422719
Cubcoal hasn't taken any damage. Trying to do something that'll make it unable to attack isn't gonna one-shot Cubcoal idk why you think scratch makes it less likely to deal damage to us
>>
>>2422749
Yeah, but I don't think we've got any potions or the like on us, so the less damage Cubcoal takes the better. There's a decent chance we're gonna run into more Pokemon on this hike, better to end this as efficiently as possible and keep Cuboal in peak condition.
>>
>>2422345
>Grab it by the tail and smack it against a tree
this is stupid but if it works it'll be funny
>>
>>2422825
Man this is like the 3rd time I'm telling someone this but look at the pastebin. We have 2 potions and 2 oran berries plus we're in a forest so we can assume there's more berries around if we somehow get injured enough

>>2422847
I don't think it's to ridiculous but I do agree it would be funny
>>
>>2422825
Well we already decided to take the risky path, and we picked the feisty pokemon, it seems to be out of character to start playing it really safe now.
>>2422724
I mean, If it does, it's a small bird, we grab Cubcoal, shield it with our body and run for safety, we aren't deep in the woods and we don't seem to be in the dangerous part of the region. I think we can handle a bit of a bruised ego, we're already 8-10 years late starting our journey.
>>
>>2423139
>it seems to be out of character to start playing it really safe now.
imo this is the wrong approach to quest characterization.
The choices made in the quest define the character, you're not limited to only the choices that fit the character traits already established.

For example in the situation mentioned, that wouldn't be out of character, it would change our character from "confident, hotheaded go-getter" to "guy who tries to be confident and wild but lacks the confidence and ends up bitching out".
Real people aren't always totally secure in their decision making, it's okay to flip flop in character.

I can agree to this approach of doing a quest but what I think what that anon was trying to get across was is that we aren't in a position where running is the only reasonable option as we are not in danger yet. If we were in danger then the confident coward would be a logical option but we aren't. Let me put it like this
>Goes into dangerous forest
>Starts battle with pokemon instantly >Damages enemy without taking any damage
>Runs away
This doesn't make any sense with the established character cause there's nothing challenging the characters regular environment so any change would come off as bipolar

>>Don't catch it and leave its body as a reminder to the forest that you are the KING.

It's not like we need another fire type. Gotta get some type diversity.
>>
>>2423234
In cases like this where it's a pretty low-level Pokemon who's definitely fainted, I won't require rolls for catching it. But once it gets into the higher levels and the Pokemon might still be conscious I'll ask for rolls!
>>
>>2423234
Encounters are probably predetermined so we get to see the most new pokemon and don't encounter 10 Parafly's in a row

I'm an idiot I thought you meant rolling for catching them.

Encounters are predetermined yes!

I agree it's our choices that make the character, I never said otherwise, but we decided to go into the dangerous forest instead of the safe route, it was the decision we made immediately before this battle. I just think, not only because the option seemed fun, but for the sake of making decisions with some manner of consistency, we shouldn't just decide to start making risk calculations when we haven't done so before and have no reason to start

I'd like to supplement this with maybe wiping off whatever bits of sand are still left on his face/around his eyes. We might get bit for it, but sacrifices must be made.

It's funny you should say that when I first saw him he reminded me of Silver and I can't unsee it but that's probably because I imagine him with red hair. Glacier should reall draw him in color one of these days

Now that we've impressed on Cubcoal that it's not always the case of who has the bigger stick, we need to put our money where our mouth is and start working on battle tactics. Also he looks liable to work himself up into a snit if we just leave him alone.

Also us sticking around a bit gives Fevine more time to catch up to us *bricked*

>>2423585

If we weren't going back to the lab to complete the fetch quest (and thus have more opportunities to seduce Fevine to the baller side) I would have. Hopefully we'll stick to the plan and not be distracted....

>>2423562
Which reminds me....we never did get WHAT the typing of the gym was, did we? We'd better grind up now just incase its the traditional rock/ground gym.

We'll find out when we get there here are the options that I see:
1. Normal - We're even

2. Bug - We wreck shit

3. Rock - Right when we're about to lose Fevine comes to the rescue

Also haven't you heard Nibdew is the best starter and soon to be strongest party member
>>
>>2423612
Thirding.

But checking with them now is more than just because we miss Fevine! It also gives them firsthand data on how easy it is to train Cubcoals / how amenable they are to following instructions they're not keen on/ the general tempement of Cubcoal when he's not in BURN EVERYTHING battle mode. Plus we have experienced trainers on hand to tell us what to do if we screw up training and provoke cubcoal into starting a forest fire or something

This is a good idea we should update them everyday or 2 just to log Cubcoals behavior and reactions and then they'll give all 3 because we give such great data

[Training is gonna be more open-ended than battling! You can choose if you want to focus on powering up moves, work on battle tactics, work on raising some stats (Speed training, Strength training, etc.) I'd like for move training to be more like the anime like how they'd combine moves to form one giant move, or a Pokemon could ride on another Pokemon's back for larger reach!

I think this is the safest bet. It seems like a few anons have been itching for more complicated write-ins, and this should make them easier to do in battle.

Doesn't look like Cubcoal can do sustained fire breathing yet, so how about checking out just how well he knows his physical stuff. Is he strong enough for wrestling moves, or is he more of a speed guy who can lunge 2 steps forward just before a good Ember?
>>
Since
>Let's work on battle tactics!
Seems to be the winning vote, we should probably devise some, you know, tactics. The obvious one would seem to be basic evasive maneuvers, since plenty of pokemon have ranged attacks. We should probably beat (Figuratively) the concept of zig-zagging on the approach when he's going for a scratch or another melee attack into him, to minimize risk of getting hit on his way in. Otherwise, not to sure. Teach him how to perform a German Suplex (This one is a joke (Maybe))? Or see if he can put out rapid fire embers, would be good for harassment
>>
>>2423797
long term, I'm wondering if he can do a low power, long duration ember. Something not intended to hurt(much), but to cover the eyes is very bright light and keep them blind.
>>
>>2423797
A tactic that always works is a good old ember in the face to blind the opponent then wail at them with scratch, pin them down, or suplex them

We need a reliable way of dealing with flying opponents so I suggest working on aiming with rocks to make a little improv stone edge

In it's dex entry it said it learns skills from other pokemon at a young age so we should get him to show us some
>>
>>2423815
Might be a bit sketchy. That sort of modification would sound more like creating a new move, which probably wouldn't work out, because Pokemon can only have four moves for some reason. Then again, I could be wrong.
>>
>>2423817
I used to have a cat that would wait outside in the driveway until a bird swooped at it, then it would leap up, grab the bird in mid air, and backflip-suplex it into the ground.

This was just how it hunted. Every day.
>>
>>2423821
Pretty sure the anime tosses that logic and supports using moves in creative ways.
Glacier seems to like how the anime does things so it wouldn't surprise me if he's on board with that.

I liked Fevine originally, but when the time came, I gained a greater appreciation for Cubcoal. It got to the point where I couldn't decide. So I didn't. I figured abstaining would be like a half-vote for each one.

Part of what made my decision was that I felt Cubcoal would be a better foil for our trainer. I mean, he's 20 and he's just now going on his adventure, so he's a late bloomer. He's probably timid on the inside. So, he's got the most in common with Fevine, whereas Cubcoal is his conceptual opposite and can balance him out; be the yin to his yang.

I like Fevine better and would have picked him if it were my journey for sure. But our nameless trainer is different.

Also I seriously don't think Fevine's gonna join us later.

We'll see his corpse from when he tried to join us but got attacked on the way. Or maybe if we're lucky, our rival will be Silver and he'll get chosen/stolen by an asshole and resent us for not choosing him and leaving him with a cruel trainer.

...Okay I actually regret not picking Fevine now. Also I made myself super sad.

It's just some lady we ran into, there's no reason to suspect her of jack shit. Do you go into every social event thinking the people you're talking to are master thieves?

They don't look shifty, they look lazy and aloof. Jesus Christ, they've got the same eyes as the Professor. And really, them catching that Pokemon we beat is pretty altruistic, in a way. I mean, it's opportunistic for them, sure, they get a Pokemon with no effort required, but they're also taking care of the otherwise defenseless and vulnerable creature that would otherwise get scooped up by predators. It's not like she was lurking in the bushes, waiting for us to beat a Pokemon and stealing the catch out from under us. She saw an unconscious firerat, and said "Oh sweet free firerat. C'mere lil' guy, I've gotcha, you're good now." Pretty reasonable thing, here. You're blowing what little we know of her out of proportion.

Wouldn't the Pokedex kinda make it obvious who gave us Cubcoal?
>>
>>2425592
The majority of the anons here clearly think she looks shifty and she doesn't look like the the Prof. at all their faces are completely different. Besides the Prof. looks and acts like a kind old man and she looks like a druggie (imo). I agree what should did was reasonable but it's also reasonable to not tell some random shifty chick you met alone in the forest the name and location of the person who gave you a rare pokemon

>I've never seen that Pokemon, let's scan it with the Dex.

Pls let's introduce ourselves before we start waving technology in their faces, especially since doggo looks grumpy - also I guess professor connection is confirmed?
>>
>>2425592
It's the principle of just blabbing to a random stranger that the lab is giving out free rare pokemon. For all we know she could mention it to others and then the lab might be swamped with trainers wanting one for themselves too -way to endear us to them.

The Pokedex doesn't reveal moves or abilities on Pokemon that belong to other people!
>>
>>2426075
Really? Then what's the difference between battle mode and normal mode
>>
>>2426075
Huh. Didn't the starters belong to other people when we used them? I mean I get that they were in our Party and all but they were still like, officially registered to the Professors.
>>

>What are you doing all the way out here then?
>>
>>2426110
I demand another starter in reparation but props for admitting your mistake some qm's get pretty salty about that
>>
>>2426106
That was when the pokedex was registered to the professor still. So it could read the starters because they were of the same owner.
>>
>>2426110
My headcanon has always been that you need to connect the Pokeball that contains a Pokemon directly to the Pokedex to get info on it which is why you have to catch things to get the full info on them.
Under that premise the Professor probably just told us to connect the balls to the dex, or better yet since it was his dex he had already done so.
>>
>>2426252
I always hated how you could only get info if you catch a mon. I perfer the whole scan thing from the anime more
>>
>>2426264
I don't mind either, I just want it to make sense in my head.

>>
>>2426264
With the level of info you get from scanning, one wonders how the pokedex doesn't already have all the info. It's like the professors already did the research and gatelocked the pokedex rather than the dex actually learning anything from scans.

>>2426273
>>If you don't have anything better to do, we could journey around together for a while.

For no other reason than it's funny, my headcanon for her is that her first reaction in most cases is to try and feed things crackers. Which means, by extension, she probably always has crackers on hand.

Are you lost? Have a cracker.
Are you hurt? Have a cracker.
Are you bored? Have a cracker.
Are you a legendary pokemon? Have a cracker.

>>
>>2427160
>So, how'd you end up end up getting your Skruppy, are they common around here? Oh, and do they have a name?

Speaking of which we really need to give Cubcoal a proper name, it is integral to the bonding process.
>>
>>2427624
Maybe something simple like sulfur or brimstone. Seems suitable for him given he's from a poisonous region and is a fire type plus it comes out of the ground which is a nice link for his potential secondary typing.
>>
>>2427627
>>2427648
No nicknames makes you a basic bitch. Or an actual 9 nine year old.

Ideally, we should wait until we get a little more of Cobcoal's personality beyond

"Probably Tsun" and "Willing to fight God"
>>
>>2427683
A little too on the nose. Less of a name, and more just a word related to the species. Maybe Brenton, or just Brent, if we're just basing it off its species. It means "dweller by the burnt lands."

>>2427691
I agree with that, yeah. It's just something to keep in mind.
>>
>>2427691
Are you sure? That seems like all we need.
>>
>>2427713
On second thought. I can't really argue with that.

>>2427683
I'm a fan of Sulfur, since he's a little stinker.

>>2427712
Brenton is cool too, given the meaning. But it doesn't sound all that cool.
>>
>>2427683
I'm fine with Sulfer (He looks like a Sulfer imo) but Brimstone is a bit too edgy

>>2427712
He doesn't look like a Brent type of guy to me
>>
>>2427736
A bit cliche but what about ignis? Personally I'd like Prometheus but it's a bit if a mouthful.
>>
>>2427767
No thanks I hate the cliche use latin/greek language or mythology when naming stuff it's way to overused
>>
>>2427767
>Naming it after something that burns
Why not just name it Gonorrhea then?
>>
>>2427635
Nicknames are only cool when they aren't meme names, and have actual thought put behind them.
>>
>>2427762
>>2427767
>>2427818
Yeah see, names that just show "this is a fire type," are lame. Sulfur, Ignis, those aren't *names,* they're rudimentary exercises in word association. It's like calling an electric type Sparky. It's childish and uncreative. I'm not saying we name him Jake or Brent or whatever but we can do better than fucking Blaze.
>>
>>2427837
True but it's Pokemon. Most nicknames are going to be either lazy word association or puns. The only other option aside from those you see is when it's just random letters thrown together to make a funny sounding name like Throngus.
>>
>>2427837
I'm fine with Sulfer cause it's not a commonly used name for a fire type (as opposed to blaze which literally every kid names their fire types) and it just fits Cubcoal (In the fact that he's from a poisonous area and that he looks like a Sulfer kinda guy imo). I would perfer if we just call him Cubcoal because it's a fitting and nice sounding name and I don't like nicknaming for the sake of nicknaming but if we had to name him something I'd rather it be something that isn't generic like Ignis or lame like Brent

Let's call him Berserker because he's gonna be the strongest in the world.
>>
>>2427878
Yeah, personally I'd prefer he have a name, but I can get the desire to not force it needlessly. Waiting till we know more about his personality and then deciding a name might be the better choice. Out of the options thus far Sulfur's the only one which seems like a decent fit, that or maybe something based around a volcano given his explosive personality and unpredictable nature.
>>
>>2427837

How about doubling down on the fact it's a badger cub and call it something like Broch or Dachs?
>>
>>2427940
"Dachs" just means "badger" in German, so fuck off, and Broch is... some sort of ancient Irish stone building?
>>
>>2427934
If you want a bit of an obscure reference then what about Adahan? Though that works better if he's also a ground type.

Honestly I think the clear route is to join whatever local villain team is in this area, that or make our own. If there are multiple options we choose whichever has the coolest outfit.
>>
>>2428022
With how many teams are running around in Pokemon it feels like there's more criminals than people.

I'd back it though as long as the teams are either interesting or not blatantly mustache twirling evil doers.
>>
>>2427974
>I don't know yet. I think I'll just go with the flow for now.
Becoming a professor would be really cool actually
>>
>>2428022
Playing the villian could be fun and wouldn't be too crazy a leap what with us going into the forest and beating shit up for experience but it's a slight stretch and I doubt other anons would go for it. A reasonable middle ground would be something like Kazuma from Konosuba where we're kind of a scumbag and do stuff like fight children and take their money or something
>>
>>2428031
Blatant mustache twirling I can handle, I'm more worried about ham-fisted philosophy.
And clearly most local economies are reliant on their team of choice, they are the single biggest employers, they need to pay for custom designed flashy uniforms, and they even keep the local trash pokemon population from expanding out of control. When you think about it they are the unsung heroes.
>>
>>2427974
>>I don't know yet. I think I'll just go with the flow for now.
>>
>>2428040
What I meant by blatantly evil is those teams actively working towards the end of the world. This usually includes hamhanded philosophy.

Teams like team rocket are fine for the reasons you described.

>>I don't know yet. I think I'll just go with the flow for now.

>I don't know yet. I think I'll just go with the flow for now.
We need to do enough gopher work to convice the profs that we're worthy of Fevine.

>>2428974
The idea of a considerable percentage of Pokémon being Totem-esque in size and power is both terrifying and awesome.

Come to think of it, I've heard sometimes the anime had examples of Pokémon much, much bigger than normal (like that fuck-off Tentacruel), so it wouldn't be unusual for this story to follow suit.
>>
>>2428816
>Yell at the other Chiwip for kicking him out.
>>
>>2429020
I can see something on the scale of totems but not something as ridiculous as the Tentacruel thing. The anime can be pretty retarded at times like the Tentacruel thing or that one Ghastly episode where he fused Blastoise and Venusaur
>>
>>2429084
I think the fusion was an illusion.

>>
>>2428844
I think the games and some other non-anime derivative works take a median approach between "needs to be trained to understand basic orders" and "capable of complex thought".
>>
>>2428816
>>Kneel down and offer to help Chiwip.
>>
>>2429250
But in the games you can use pokemon right after they hatch and they take orders just fine.
>>
>Do both
>>
>>2429279
In gens 2 and 3 freshly hatched Pokemon were also higher level than the things you'd find on the first route of each game.
You have to make some allowances for game mechanics imo.
>>
>>2429412
Yeah I agree with that pokemon wouldn't be fun if everything made sense I was just pointing out that your statement about pokemon having to train to understand basic orders make no sense in the games at least because they all follow orders perfectly as soon as you get them (granted you have enough badges)
>>
>>2429423
I was saying that it takes a middle ground between those two stances.
They're assumed to be intelligent enough to understand basic speech and orders but not intelligent enough to think on the same level as a primate.

The anime makes them as smart or smarter than humans though.
>>
>>2429279

This is true even in Mystery Dungeon. One of the ways to get new party members is by having other pokemon dump their unborn children on you as a reward.

supporting
>>
>>2429528
but shares his weakness to rock, 4x actually, we need a grass type. Something like a feline. A grass feline.
>>
>>2429540
Where would we find a pokemon that perfect? How could we ensure that it was loyal to a fault and cuddly?
>>
>>2429540
Electric isn't weak to rock, it's only 2x and grass doesn't resist it so that doesn't help us survive a rock throw.
>>
>>2429544
ok 2x, but that still means we are just increasing the amount of rock weakness we have, which is far less productive. Also, yes, yes not having a 2x weakness helps us survive a rock throw. And killing a rock type with a 2x STAB grass move also helps us survive a rock through.
>>
>>2429540
It only has a x2 weakness to Rock and Ice, it's weakness to Electric is negated due the Electric typing, and it's weakness to Ground is negated due to the Flying type. Type-wise, it's good defensively. Stat-wise, that's to be seen.

I certainly hope so, it is too early to tell whether this is going to be the happy sort of pokemon adventure where nothing overly bad ever happens, or the sort where there can be real consequences. Either could be a lot of fun, but until we have a solid feel for the tone I'd rather not risk poor Fevine. The fact that people keep warning us about Maho being wild and untamed, dangerous, and deserving of fear certainly make a darker tone possible even if it isn't full on gritty realism.

If a 8th grade giant bullies a 3rd grade kid and you tell the 3rd grade kid to stand up for himself and he gets his ass beat you don't punish the 3rd grader for being a bitch you punish the 8th grader for being an asshole
>>
>>2430690
>8th grade bully
>3rd grade bitch
>You encouraged the twig to make themselves a mouthy target
>Proceed to be upset when the most obvious possible result immediately plays out, because one's a 3rd grade bitch and the other's an 8th grade bully.
Putting aside the fact they're probably around the same level anyway and it's more a matter of temperament, did anyone expect a DIFFERENT result? Does anyone actually think this is going to improve relationships when Cubcoal sits there internalizing that you're just going to tell things to stand up to it, then scold it when it bickers with them?

Recall Cubcoal's dex entry mentioned it learns how to fight when it's a kid by following its pack around and roughhousing/bickering back and forth. What are ya'll trying to accomplish here by telling it that it's natural development habits aren't "nice" enough?
>>
>>2430697
What else would we tell the 3rd grader? "oh just let him steal your lunch money everyday and starve bitch". That won't help anything it'll just let the bully know that bullying the kid is an easy and effective way of making money. So you tell the kid to try and make it seem less easy. Then once he beats up the bully and shows that he'll refuse to back down an authority figure (We're the authority figure in this situation) punishes the 8th grader. Of course we're gonna get upset. Do you expect us to be like "Well that was probably gonna happen so it's ok". That's like saying the government should not get upset about people getting stabbed because it's obvious that will happen eventually you give everyone access to knives .
>>
>>2430747
>Of course we're gonna get upset.
>Do you expect us to be like "Well that was probably gonna happen so it's ok".
You are literally encouraging a kid to get into a fight with a bigger kid, then being a full grown adult picking a fight with a kid because the fight you were the catalyst for starting didn't go the way you wanted. Encouraging them to stand up for themselves is both fine and correct, but you know exactly what's gonna happen. And that's ignoring that these are two entirely different species and you failed to address the fact that this is natural, normal and healthy for Cubcoal.

>That's like saying the government should not get upset about people getting stabbed because it's obvious that will happen eventually you give everyone access to knives .
Somehow I don't recall any government encouraging anyone to stand up to people with knives and/or guns, because it's really obvious that'll go down in a very predictable manner. The advice in those situations has been to keep your head down and escape, and whatever you do, DON'T provoke them. Yes, go find an authority figure, but don't pick a fight and THEN go running to one, that's stupid.
>>
>>2430697
>What are ya'll trying to accomplish here by telling it that it's natural development habits aren't "nice" enough?
Chiwip aside we're kind of doing that already by telling him he needs to listen to us more. His natural habitat is literally toxic so he needs that upbringing to survuve but right now he can and needs to mellow down since his environment is different, he'll never stop being hotheaded but we need him to at least learn to play nice with us and others since we might face tag team battles down the line and we don't want the rest of our pokemon to be on edge around him.
>>
>>2430772
There's a nature vs nurture debate in here, and you're right that the environment isn't as harsh. On the other hand, that doesn't change its nature any, and we should be providing it an outlet for that energy and inherent aggression rather than just lecturing it and going "You need to be nicer". You can't just whole-heartedly ignore one side of the equation, and that's exactly what's happening here.
>>
>>2430697
I don't think you know what roughhousing is, or bickering. Look up a video of wolf cubs playing and then you might get it. Anyway, Cubs doing neither of those, he's just being a bit of a shit.
>>
>>2430796
This is more condescending than contributive to the conversation in any manner, but I'm not going to keep arguing the point. It's clear that I'm the minority here, so carry on. I doubt how we handle it will make any difference in the long run, anyway.
>>
>>2430789
>we should be providing it an outlet for that energy and inherent aggression rather than just lecturing it and going "You need to be nicer"
That's what battles are for, it helps out team in literally no way if he takes it out on our other pokemon.
>>
>>2430811
I apologise, I definitely could have worded that better. Still, you get what I mean. This behaviour feel less animalistic and more like human personality stuff. Even most of the similes used to describe it have been human in nature, not animal.
>>
>>2430771
We never told the 3rd grader to get into a fight. We told him to tell the 8th grader he won't give him his lunch money anymore. Once he assaults the child with physical force we punish him for not abiding by the laws. And just cause we know this is a likely scenario doesn't make it any less bad (much like in my gun example). You could also argue that it's only natural for a big kid to try and make easy money off of a weak but that doesn't make it anymore justified because he's ignoring rules that society or social space needs to function properly.

And as for the gun thing It was solely addressing the argument that because it's likely to happen that means it's ok and you shouldn't be punished for it

you lot are acting like these are kids in a playground when you should be acting like these are our little brothers/ kids desu, they're not going anywhere after they stop fighting, they're with us now. Playground rules don't apply with siblings.
>>
>>2430908
I was only using the example because he mentioned playground rules first and I know that it isn't the same exact thing as a playground. But I wouldn't compare their relationship to that of siblings they just met and are not really used to the fact that they'll be together for a while now. It's more like the older kid from a foster home bullying the new shy kid

Maybe we'll get to buy some cool treats for our rad bros while we're there. Besides, it seems like Jess is kind of nudging us there with the intent of dropping us off there.

>>
>>2434100
I can agree with that but why do you assume they are "maximum edge overdrive" and don't have a backstory. Sure they look edgy but we just met them and they were kinda rude that's it.

>>2434133
I preferred Barry over Cheren and Bianca but that could just be I'm a gen 4 fag. There arcs didn't really do anything for me (especially Bianca) and were completely overshadowed by best boy N.

And I didn't like BLUE (That's the only acceptable name) as much as Silver. He's up there on my rivals list but he was just kind of there to battle the player, lose, talk about how badass he is, and leave. He didn't feel like a character to me more of a force of nature unlike Silver who felt like an actual character. Don't get me wrong the simplicity of BLUE is nice but Silver left more of an impression on me

>>2434150
Paul was based. When I watched the anime as a kid and we first saw him catch 3 Starly's and pick the best one I knew that fucker doesn't play games. I also liked how best ash on a consistent basis so he could back his ideologies and ways of doing things up with hard facts. Him and Alain were the best anime rivals but I prefer Paul because he was the anime equivalent to Silver
>>
Having an edgy rival would be hilarious tbqh. Pokemon protagonists never take advantage of it, mostly because they’re all mute or nice kids like Ash, but we are going to wage psychological WARFARE against this kid if he picks a fight with us. We even have the age advantage. It’s going to be even funnier if he picked Fevine.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think Cubcoal took any damage from that fight and if you're worried about stamina I think it's been enough time for him to recover. But if you're still concerned we could always give him a berry to hold or something.

Also I know it doesn't cover all of his weaknesses but we got Chiwip for any water types and ground and rock types usually don't appear this early in the game

I don't know he seems like a guy who gets angry easy and picks fights even if he can't back it up (in classic edge lord fashion). Starter Pokemon are pretty strong and I doubt he's got incredibly strong Pokemon this early on because that would be kinda bullshit and not fun at all from a gameplay standpoint. plus even if we do lose it'll make things interesting as long as it isn't a bullshit "You couldn't really do anything to fight back" type of loss

[apologies for very few updates this weekend. been working on a lot of things! thank you for being patient with me!]
>>
>>2436832
Don't worry about it man. We all have lives off the internet. R-right?
>>
>>2436832
It's fine no rush. When do you expect the next update to be out because if it's gonna be in like 2 hours I'll just go to bed now
>>
>>2436832
Yeah, it's no problem. Just wondering, is the next update going to be soonish? Will stick around a while longer if so, if not gonna get some shuteye.
>>
>>2436860
>>2436875

Update should be up in 15-20!
>>
not sure why my trip isn't working!
>>
>>2436881
Most likely because of the April Fools shit they're doing.
>>
>>2436881
This April Fools business has had Trips and the like on the fritz.
>>

>Glacier is a team minifag
Damn shame.

By the way, are you planning on compiling the updates as a chapter somewhere (after we get to that point)
>>
>>2436902
I have all the pics compiled in a folder so I could upload it as a zip...? Not sure what the most effective way to do that would be. Any suggestions?
>>
>>2436907
there are comic themes for tumblr I guess. but it's really not a big deal anyway, I was just curious
>>
>>2436907
maybe an Imgur album? it'd be easier to just hand over the link instead of downloading and you can put whatever annotations you need under the images
>>
>>2436916
an imgur gallery with 100+ images seems like it might crash my computer...
>>
>>2436907
>>2436916
A public imgur gallery is probably the way to go.
Public so you can find it on google.

TYPE
ADVANTAGE
>>
>>2436994
Chiwip seems the obvious choice. Spark should be effective, and I don't think Electric is weak to Poison or Flying.
>>
>>2436994
How old is this guy? I can't really tell.

>>2436994
>Chiwip! It's your time to shine!
>>
>>2436994
>Chiwip! It's your time to shine!

>>2437003
It has type advantage being weak to neither of the opponent's types and having the electric advantage over flying.
I'm nervous sending it out without getting a chance to talk or train with it first though. We didn't even get to see it in battle when we caught it, we have absolutely no idea what it can do.
>>
>>2437008
True, but we may as well break it in now. No time like the heat of battle to test it's mettle. Besides, should be able to pull through with the edge in type.
>>
>>2437008
We could always give it the pre-battle prep talk about how he should give it his all and believe himself and no matter what She's our bro.

And then cue edgy comments about how friendship is worthless from the rival
>>
>>2437018
I doubt this guy's gonna provide us with the time to give a pep talk. We'll just cheer it on as we fight.

It'll take what 10 seconds. Even if he doesn't like it whats he gonna do stab us? Poor baby can wait a couple seconds I'm gonna encourage my qt bird if it's the last thing I do
>>
>>2437047
Attack Chiwip while we've got him distracted hyping him up? He seems rude enough to do that.
>>
>>2437060
Fair point but I think he's more likely to just talk shit about how friendship is for normies like the edgelord he is or whatever but even if he doesn't I think at least trying to prep talk Chiwip is better than just telling him to go and fight and having her choak mid-battle.
>>
>>2436994
>>Cubcoal, let's go!
Chiwip can't do it on his own, Cubcoal needs to soften him up(or win).
>>
>>2437121
Cubcoal seema like our ace wouldn't it make more sense to have Chiwip soften them up. Like something along the lines of taking out Scramprey and then using thunderwave so that Cubcoal can sweep if anything happens to Chiwip
>>
This was an incredibly stupid fight.
>>
>>2437138
Agreed. We should be out catching more pokemon. Don't get into a trainer fight until you have 3 mons!
>>
>>2437145
Well we could've had three but we chose not to. Nothing we can do now considering we're already fighting this guy.
>>
>>2437145
A lot of the 1st gym leaders have 2 Pokemon so I don't think it's too ridiculous. I meam I doubt he's gonna have 3 mons let alone have all 3 be strong. And if you're really worried we could probably give them both a berry to give us a little bit of an edge

>Dodge, then Peck!

>Dodge, then Thunder Wave!

>Dodge, then Spark!

[3 rolls of 1d100! If it's a high enough roll you'll successfully dodge and attack, but if not you'll take the hit and still attack.]
>>
Rolled 50 (1d100)

>>2437263

[Also! Totally forgot to include this in the Dex entry, Scamprey has poison needles all over its body, so be careful! (just pretend it was in the entry!)]

>>
>>2437351
[I wasn't able to reveal the poisonous needles part until AFTER they chose Chiwip...so part of it's my fault.]
>>
This is 4chan. These people play pokemon.

They should know switching out is a viable strategy. Especially with a status effect pokemon.
>>
Here's hoping Cubcoal can make use of that paralyze
>>
>>2437353
.>>2437351

Aren't we already poisoned? So Poison quills won't give us a second Poison effect...
>>
>>2437387
Might be more of a Rough Skin situation than Poison Point.
>>
Hrm, well, bad rolls are bad rolls, I guess. Nothing to be done. Hopefully Cubcoal can bring it back.
>>
>>2437358
>>2437351
Switching out of poison is stupid. The scamprey will get a chance to poison both our pokemon, and we lose type advantage. We do what damage we can and hope for better rolls, no reason to give a free attack.

Also, we haven't used physical attacks. We just failed to dodge because of dice.
>>
Also, what is with people saying this is a bad idea. This is a pokemon quest, you battle people in pokemon, sometimes you lose, and that's okay. It's not like we jumped into a hole filled with angry sevipers who are filling us with venom as we speak.

>>
>>2437567
We admittedly might have jumped into it a bit early, though I still stand by my choice to do so. Besides, it's not like the consequences will be all that severe if we lose. Some kid gets to act slightly smugger then he is already. Big deal
>>
>>2437570
Chiwip got hurt because our recklessness altho it was mostly super shitty luck we need to heal her as soon as we can and treat her to something nice when all this is over.
>>
>>2437577
Actually, can’t we just apply a potion right now? Or is that just a game thing?
