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!Twitter: https://twitter.com/glacierQMFirst Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/2400739/Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Myths%20and%20LegendsCharacter Info Pastebin: https://pastebin.com/nt6QeQUaPokedex Pastebin: https://pastebin.com/7S8PEC0Q

>>2440649Pokemon Treats - 500 PokedollarsI don't care about anything else buy these
>>2440649Pokemon Treats! We owe them to both Cubcoal and Chiwip.
>>2440649>PokeDoll>Treats>PotionWe should be good after that. Don't want to waste all our cash.
Certainly we need some pokeballs, no? We only have 4 left.
>>2440649>Pokemon Treats - 500 Pokedollars>2 Pokeball - 400 Pokedollars>Full Heal - 450 Pokedollars>Potion - 200 PokedollarsI know we still have 3 pokeballs left but I like to be well in sock and I think it's better if we have something to treat our pokemon just in case.
>>2440649>Pokemon Treats>1 Potion>2 Antidotes>1 Paralyze Heal
>>2440657I'll make an addendum to my previous post may have been a little to eagerPokemon Treats - 500 Pokedollars3 Potions - 600 2 Pokeball - 400
>>2440649>Pokemon Treats - 500 Pokedollars2 Potion - 200 Pokedollars2 Pokeball - 200 Pokedollars
I don't think we need anything right now but we should save money to somewhere to get stat boostinf items, protein, zinc, carbos and most Importantly a power bracer/lens (depending on what pokemon we're going to be training)>>2440680That's more than enough.

>>2440911it's in the pastebin, we currently have 3500 Pokedollars plus whatever we just won rn I suppose.
>>2440649>1 Pokeball - 200 Pokedollars>1 Revive - 1500 Pokedollars>2 Pokemon Treats - 500 Pokedollars = 1000total of 2700
>>2440918We started with 3000 and then won 500 so that's the total amount
>>2440927what he said.
>>2440918Oh shit. Thanks anon.>>2440649PotionEscape RopePoke DollPokemon TreatsOne of each of those items. 2700 Pokedollars.
Remember when Chiwip was poisoned and people were super worried.We should buy Antidotes.
iirc letting your pokemon die and/or using items like medicine on them decreases friend level. With that in mind I vote for >>2440992OP does Pokedoll let us use Substitute?
>>2441020Shouldn't we just buy full heals instead antidotes are much more situational and cost only a little less
Should've asked if she was on the menu.
Why do people want a Poke Doll? It's waaay to expensive to even be worth it
>>2441031Precisely. I chose the items that would allow us to support our Pokemon during emergency situations. Potion to restore them mid-battle. Poke Doll to take damage in times of crisis. Escape Rope if we desperately need to escape some God forsaken place. And Pokemon Treats to reward our Pokemon's survival.>>2441055It acts as a substitute during battle. It takes damage for your Pokemon while still allowing them to attack. Like having a temporary force field. It can be a life saver if we get in over our heads and need to retreat. It will be our trump card when all else fails.
>>2440649>poke treats 500>2 potions 400>2 pokeballs 400>2 antidotes 400Total of 17,000Not too bad and we have some wiggle room to start building an early team for first gym
>>2441078>Potion to restore them mid-battleActually there was a discussion about that last thread and I think it was decided potions would only be used outside of battle to keep us from hoarding potions and just win battles trough healing.
We need to start training with our Pokemon.Weighted clothing anyone?
>>2441105 WE will be the weights
>>2441098Is that assuming a formal battle between trainers? What about wild pokemon? Can we switch out and heal the other one as that one fights?
>>2441098I see. My point still stands in regards to supporting our Pokemon when they are weak. Let's just make sure not to let them faint in battle. It would be wise to catch one or two more Pokemon and rotate them out when need be.
Jeez, our pokemon are such pussies.
>>2441116Honestly I agree, it's why I'm kind of relieved the battle didn't go any further and why I suggested we buy a couple more pokebals, I know we're not gonna catch every pokemon we encounter but it's better to be prepared.
>>2440649Buy 7 pokeballs poke treats and 2 full heal
>>2441121Eh, Chiwip at the very least took a couple of hits and held up. Chiwip hit the other guy with one spark and he went down like a sack of potatoes.
>>2441155Why would we need to buy so many pokeballs in bulk>>2441159>responding to bait
>>2441159Everyone's so concerned about babying them.
>He was being a jerk! I had to stand up to him.>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?>I don't really mind him, I just wanted to beat him around a bit.
>>2441175Because just in case and thats our job technically
>>2441204>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?
>>2441192We want to treat them decently, yeah. Treating Pokémon as tools never got anyone anything other then a plucky protagonist trying to thwart their plans, or show them the power of friendship.
>>2441204>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?Handily beat stuck up edgelord with a chiwip who literally got caught 20 minutes ago after falling out of its nest."Oh no, he has REALLY strong pokemon and went easy on you :c"
>>2441204>>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?
>>2441215Blue was the Champion. >>2441204>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?
>>2441204Ask her if you could use the Pokedex on the Pokemon next to her
>>2441204>>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?>>2441223Pretty sure he means every villain organization ever, Blue was a dick to Red but I'm sure he wasn't a complete Dick to his pokemons.
>>2441204>He was being a jerk! I had to stand up to him.
>>2441210>A pokemon mc actually doing their jobDoes not compute>>2441223For 5 seconds and I don't even think he treated his pokemon badly>>2441225I think we already did
>>2441210Our job is to run errands and maybe do some research.
>>2441204>Seb>His name is fucking SebHe was being a jerk! I had to stand up to him.
>>2441234We have only scanned Jess's Skruppy not the old lady's mon
>>2441261It's a whimsicott. We'll be fine without it.
>>2441261When we got here we scanned some of their Pokemon then we met Seb
>>2441266My thoughts exactly.
>>2441275My bad I guess I read over it. Take this for your troubles
>>2441290No thanks degenerate
>>2441290T-thank you anon. Much appreciated
>>2441204>I don't really mind himHe was just kind of smug, no harm no foul, bygones and all.>>2441192This kind of, I care about our buddies but everyone is so afraid to take risk, try things, and even complain when we choose to battle, this is going to get really boring really fast if they start winning votes to not battle or to avoid fun/dangerous routes like through the woods.
>>Do you know about him? Is he like, a regular here or something?
>What are cryptic Pokemon?>Where did you come from?>Why are you always sitting around in this lodge?
>>2441512>>What are cryptic Pokemon?
>>2441512>What are cryptic Pokemon?Missing No. here we come?
>>2441512>What are cryptic Pokemon?I was just wondering when we were going to get to the namesake of this quest.
>>2441512>What are cryptic Pokemon? The name’s pretty self explanatory tbqh, but gotta build up that knowledge.
>>2441512>What are cryptic Pokemon?>What like legendary Pokemon?Least rude answer
>>2441512>What are cryptic Pokemon?
>What kinds of Pokemon are they seeing? Like...do you know where they'd supposedly be?>That's really silly. I'm glad I'm not that dumb.>Well, maybe they're real. It's hard to tell.[See you all tomorrow!]
>>2441555>I dunno if they're real or not, but I guess you'd make a ton of money if you were the first one to find it.
>>2441555>Rival is chuuni conspiracy nutYeah I dig it. Also how pissed is he gonna be when we exercise our protag licence and nab not-MissingNo first. Thanks for running Glacier!
>>2441555>Well, maybe they're real. It's hard to tell.>Isn't most of Maho undiscovered anyway? Who knows what could be lurking out there. Forgot to vote
>>2441555>Well, maybe they're real. It's hard to tell.Most of Maho’s undiscovered, don’t see why there couldn’t be a few Pokémon floating about that no one had catalogued yet. Most Legendary Pokémon probably started out as myths anyways, in other regions.
>>2441555>I mean...>I dont...>I thought this region was largely un-explored?>I know Felvines at least are very good at avoiding notice.>How is this different from regular old Pokemon who have not been discovered yet?>Didn't an alien pokemon just get discovered a couple of years ago? Deo something?
>>2441555i want my polycephallic eevee, Glacier. It'll be great when we evolve one head into vaporeon and the other into umbreon
>>2441555>Well, maybe they're real. It's hard to tell.>Isn't most of Maho undiscovered anyway? Who knows what could be lurking out there.
>>2441555>What kinds of Pokemon are they seeing? Like...do you know where they'd supposedly be?So Seb is pretty much just a glorified Bigfoot hunter? That's pretty fucking funny
>All science points towards these pokemon being imaginary>In a vastly uncharted region>Full of completely undiscovered pokemon>In a world where literal aliens and space/time god pokemon existI... What? Who says this with a straight face? Our job is LITERALLY to go explore the region and find new pokemon, and they're writing off blurry photos and potential sightings of something new as Bigfoot?Glacier plz.
>>2441555>>Well, maybe they're real. It's hard to tell.
>>2441634Old bitches be trippin', dawg.
>>2441634I don't want to make excuses for holes in the writing but you have to admit, that's pretty accurate to most people in real life, particularly these days.They pick a side of the fence to stand on and then make sure they're as far from the other side as possible. If they were standing anywhere closer to the center you probably wouldn't have gotten their opinion without asking for it.
>>2441816I honestly wouldn't call one character being kinda stupid a hole in the writing. If we did that with everything, episodes of the Simpsons would just be the storytelling equivalent of the backspace button
>>2441634This is also an old lady anon. She's just tutting at these kids these days. The fact that the sighting made the news shows that other people do care
>>2441512This really triggers my autism. Legendary Pokemon aren't "confirmed" finding a Kyogre doesn't mean Regirock is real. Also, the very specific thing about legendary pokemon is that they're only known about through myths/legends, most are constantly talked about with skepticism in the games and anime.A Pokemon that's existence is relatively unknown and usually only heard about through stories is legendary. That's what a legend is.And considering it seems that in this world all or most of those legends have been proven to be true, I suggest>He might be right, I mean, there are a lot of crazier things in the world.
>>2441634It could just be " the blurry big pokemon are just ordinary big pokemon and not super special in any way"Like is glimpse of a big flaming dog you seeing an Entai, the mythical pokemon? Or is it more likely an Arcanine, which are rare, but high level trainers publically use?
>>2441925>the blurry big pokemon are just ordinary big pokemon and not super special in any wayThat still a new pokemon, ordinary pokemon can and have made people disappear, it's in a few pokedex entries.Literally nothing about these claims are unbelievable or unusual.This is a normal fucking Wednesday in the pokemon world, the worst thing Seb has done is care about something this relatively mundane.
>>2441935It would be weird if he sees these blurry cvideos and aggreively jumps to the conclusion that they MUST be super special god pokemon. Then everyone would be like "ok buddy, tone it down, could just be mundane shit"
>>2441973>super special god pokemonWe have no reason to think anyone has made this claim, all we know is that people have said it's real, and it probably is.
>>2441555>Well, maybe they're real. It's hard to tell.>What kinds of Pokemon are they seeing anyway? Like...do you know where they'd supposedly be?
>>2441634Even legendaries that are confirmed to exists have some people saying that they might just be legends, hense the name. Imagine a pokemon that straight up has so little evidence of it's existence for one reason or another than it might as well be rumors.
>>2442391Mythical Pokemon are like that. Mew, Jirachi, Shaymin, Celebi, Victini.
>>2442462yeah but at least those have ancient texts and stories to go by, these only have rumors and blurry footage. It's kind of the same difference than ancient monster stories and modern day criptyds in a way I suppose.
>>2440615I look at it like this, Legendaries are confirmed pokes that are rarely ever seen that have a long standing history, legends. And Cryptics are pokemon that are so goddamn rare and have no real evidence of existence that most people don't even believe in them. I agree that this concept is kinda fucked with due to the fact that so much of Maho is unexplored. But I'm willing to forgive the hole since cryptid based pokemon is such a cool concept.
>Do you know where Fevine would be?>What should I do?>Is Fevine going to be okay?
>>2443745>What should I do?>Is Fevine going to be okay?Huh, our shitty plan worked.
>>2443745>>Do you know where Fevine would be?>>What should I do?>>Is Fevine going to be okay?
>>2443745>I was afraid this might happen. He was a real sweetie.>Do you know where Fevine would be?>How do you usually find Fevines?
>>2443745>What should I do?>>2443755I think this is setting up our travelling companion.
>>2443745>Do you know where Fevine would be?>What should I do?Should we lay out some kitty treats or something...? Or head back to [Insert town name I forgot here]? We might meet him on the path back.
>>2443745>got it, I know what to do!>purchase and equip fox tail on head>silently juggle poketreats>wait until Fevine goes for either bait
>>2443745I can't decide, so all three.HOLY SHIT WE GET FEVINE!
>>2443745>Do you know where Fevine would be?
>>2443745>Do you know where Fevine would be>Is Fevine going to be okay?>What should I do?All of it lightning round. Also holy shit I didn't think my suggestion was gonna actually work I kinda just said it so more people would vote for Cubcoal but I'll be happy if it actually happens
>Fire (Most likely Fire/Poison in later stages, if the mention in the Pokedex of poison surrounding their dens is any indication)>Electric/Flying>GrassWe're off to a good start type-wise. And they all look cool, to boot.
>>2443862It's not a done deal, yet.
>>2443745I want to support this stuff. >>2443797
Gonna hope that nobody catches Fevine while he’s out alone in the woods.
>>2443992The starters are already registered to pokeballs, you'd need some illegal tech to catch them again.
>>2443745>PANIC! IT'S DANGEROUS OUT THERE!>ALL THREE!>DON'T WORRY FEVINE I'LL SAVE YOU!Please let me be wrong. Please let them be right. Please let me be wrong.
>>2443745>Do you know where Fevine would be?>I need to go find him. You said it yourself, it's dangerous out here especially given he'll be alone and most of the pokemon around here seem to be communal.
>Yeah, that's a good idea.>Fevine might only come out of hiding if it's just me...you might scare it away.
>>2444051Gogogogogo back the way we came. If that punk Seb catches our dear Fevine I’m going to be decidedly unamused.
>>2444054>>Yeah, that's a good idea.
>>2444054Onward! No time to talk, we're dashing out to find our Fevine!NO TIME TO TALK, DAMMIT. RUUUUN.
>>2444054>Yeah, that's a good idea.>Let's get going, there isn't any time to waste!
>>2444054>Yeah, that's a good idea.
>>2444054>Yeah, that's a good idea.FEVINE!I'LL SAVE YOU!
>>2444071I swear to god Glacier, if you're going to fuck with us on this I will be extremely unamused.
Glacier you fucking madman>>2444054>Fevine might only come out of hiding if it's just me...you might scare it away.
>>2444054>Fevine might only come out of hiding if it's just me...you might scare it away.
If we find Seb bullying or attempting to capture Fevine am I the only one who thinks beating the shit out of him is a decent response? I'm not saying we kill him and leave his body in the wilderness for Scamprey to devour (though the irony would be sweet), but kicking his ass and stealing/liberating Fevine might be worthwhile if it comes down to that route. Plus it starts our criminal lifestyle with a good cause.
>>2444132If he catches Fevine before us, or if anybody does, that's it. They got it fair and square. We're not justified in assault and robbery. Christ, calm down.
Perhaps Seb will save felvine from the wild. I do not see us getting happy fun friend tome from this.At all.
>>2444138Glacier better not fuck us over on this.
>>2444137Relax just exaggerating things a bit, still I doubt the consensus will be just shrugging it off. Still at least it's preferable to the alternative of Fevine dying in the wilderness.
>>2444132>he doesn't want our rival to capture the paper to our fiery scissors
>>2444165Where's the fun in that? Besides Seb isn't necessarily our rival yet. We might have more than one, or might not have a conventional rival. We can't expect everything to be fully formulaic, especially if this draws more from the show than the games.
>>2444054Gogogogo Find our lil buddy!Feeeeevvvvviiiinnnneeeee>>2444161>Not believing in the power of friendshipU r a orrible trainor and hooman been
>>2444310I believe in the power of friendship, it's not the only power though and someone fucking with our little buddy is a good reason to utilize the power of a swift kick to the balls. Mainly just considering the worst case scenario of Seb capturing Fevine. Well real worst case is Fevine is already dead, but there's nothing we could do about that. Lets just hope Glacier is kind to us.
>>2444132Supporting this.We'll be notorious outlaws, with our cubcoal and Fevine.We'll amass a following and take over the region.If Seb isn't trying to tzke Fevine, or helps them/us, I suggest we befriend him. He's a misunderstood good boy.
>>2444327Yeah, if he is just a bit of an ass but ultimately just gruff that's fine. I could get how everyone calling you a loon for being interested in cryptic pokemon could leave you a bit unfriendly after a while.If we can turn him into an ally that would be fairly nice.
>We have to keep looking even if it kills us!>Let's just look a little bit longer...>No...we should go back to the lodge.
>>2444485>>Let's just look a little bit longer...And then a little longer after that, then a little longer after that, then a little longer after that...
>>2444485>>Let's just look a little bit longer...Fevine's come out at night, right?
>>2444485>>Let's just look a little bit longer...Well, that's what we say out loud. We all know we're thinking the first one.
>>2444485>We have to keep looking even if it kills us!>Comeon, Cubcoal. Let's pick a fight a night!I give it 50-50 odds that felvine would investigate an a loud, fiery battle.
>>2444492He isn't exactly the bravest sort, so I'd think he'd give it a wide berth.
>>2444485>We have to keep looking even if it kills us!>Fevine are nocturnal, he should still be able to find us at night, we can't give up on him yet. If you want to go back I won't drag you along, just let the authorities know if we're not back by daybreak.>>2444492>>2444500Yeah, it isn't a bad idea to use ember for a flare type effect, but I'd save it as a last resort. It could scare Fevine away potentially especially if it is aware of the munkits around here, or alternately it might attract undesired attention. Still if nothing else it works as a backup if just wandering around in the dark with a flashlight fails.
>>2444485Dex entry said Fevines are typically only seen at night. Flitting through tree tops iirc? So best to look for it at night, and up high.
>>2443737>Setting up for a future encounter with another potential waifu.Looking forward to meeting her. >>2444485>Let's just look a little bit longer...Also what this guy said >>2444508
>>2444521I hope she glares as fiercely as milf prof
>>2444527I like the way you think, but I would prefer to see more variety. Both our Professor and Jess seem to have a less than stellar interest in our natural charm. It would be nice to see someone more... cheerful and positive.Jess is still bae tho
>>2444485>We have to keep looking even if it kills us!>Fevine are nocturnal, he should still be able to find us at night, we can't give up on him yet. If you want to go back I won't drag you along, just let the authorities know if we're not back by daybreak.Never give up!

>>2444485>We have to keep looking even if it kills us!>Fevine are nocturnal, he should still be able to find us at night, we can't give up on him yet. If you want to go back I won't drag you along, just let the authorities know if we're not back by daybreak.Also adding>Look in the treetops. The Dex did say Fevine's like to move about in them at night. Also Glacier you absolute madman, bless you for going with this.
>>2444508>>2444663Speaking of Cubcoal, we could also see if we could backtrack to the area where we were training him earlier. If Devine is tracking by scent that's the area of the route we were in the longest so our scent might be the strongest there?
>>2444485>Let's just look a little bit longer...So we're totally gonna have another battle with Sep for Fevine aren't we?
>Let's just look a little bit longer...
>>2444485>No...we should go back to the lodge.
>>2444485>Let's just look a little bit longer...
>>2444485>>Let's just look a little bit longer...
>>2444485>Let's look just a little longerBut supporting>>2444663Details>>2444535Yeah, cheerful waifu also very good with potential for stealing best girl spot.
So am I the only one who would want Nibdew if we get Fevine. 2 out of the 3 starters kinda erks me and it would be nice to use all 3. I really like them all.
>>2445788I honestly feel that it's kind of cheap that we get Fevine just because we begged for it, getting Nibdew without going to great lengths to do so like stealing him from the lab or actually finding one in it's natural habitat would just make it worse.
>>2445788Don't push it.
>>2445788I don't even want Fevine. Having 2 starters is already pretty shitty. As cute as it is, everybody complaining and begging and pining about Fevine has completely turned me off of it. I'm hoping one of the other characters gets Fevine, and that we can move the fuck on.
>>2445788I don't even want Fevine. It simply isn't right that we have 2 starter pokemons even tho Fevine had my original support
>>2445788I think you are the only one
>>2445812>>2445826>>2445838Agreed I think it's kinda dumb how we get 2 starters just because Fevinefags were crying. But if we do end up getting 2 I would like to go the full-mile and get all 3
To be fair we still don't know if we're actually getting Fevine, it does seem too good to be true.
>>2446002I sorta hope we don't but if that's the case then this is a total a tease which is a kinda dick move especially to Fevinefags
>>2445788>Wanting NibdewNah >>2445838>Simply isn't rightBeing serious here, how come? I mean it's not like we're stealing Fevine straight out of the arms of a waiting 10 year old or anything. Besides this is a quest - since there's direct anon participation there should be room for a little flexbility in the choices here and there. If I wanted everything to go by the established rules of the pokemon verse I would have just played the games or read a fanfic or something.
I’m mostly concerned about him being caught be Seb in particular, since their compatibility seems rather poor. Fevine is intelligent, but timid, and would do best with a patient, supportive trainer. While Seb didn’t seem cruel or anything, he wasn’t exactly encouraging or cheering on his Pokémon during the battle. I doubt he’d have much patience for Fevine’s cautious streak.
>>2444485>We have to keep looking even if it kills us!
>>2446140You never know, Seb could be a Gladion archtype aka dere to his pokemon but and edgy tsun to everyone else. Still want Fevine to come with us though. But I don't think Seb will have much patience for Fevine either, the timidness will probably put him off and Fevine's cuteness will ruin his carefully cultivated chuuni image
>It's Fevine! Dive into the bush!>Yell at the bush first!>Wait...you don't know what it is.>Run away!
>>2446836>It's Fevine! Dive into the bush!SURPRISE SNUGGLE
>>2446836>Wait...you don't know what it is.Fevine is probably in the trees I don't know why he'd be hiding in the bushes where all the Munkit are
>>2446836>>Wait...you don't know what it is."Get ready for anything, Cubcoal!"
>>2446836>Wait...you don't know what it is.
>>2446836>>Wait...you don't know what it is.
>>2446836>Just call out to Fevine and have your pokemon ready.
>>2446836>>It's Fevine! Dive into the bush!
>>2446857In favor of this as well, maybe also pull out an Oran berry in case Fevine is injured and needs healing, or if we just want to help coax him (or an unrelated but friendly pokemon) out.
>Fight it!>Ah, that's not Fevine. Better not waste time battling.
>>2446972Holy shit that thing is so cute, I know Fevine is in danger but I kind of want to catch it.>Fight it!
>>2446972>Fight it!Scan first ask questions later Cole!
>>2446972>Scan it with your pokedex and ask it if it saw a Fevine, pokemon can sort of understand humans, right?
>>2446972>Put your dicks back in your pants.>Its clearly freaking out about something>Try to find out why.
>>2446987>zJvMdbJ7Or... Is that an angry squiggle?
>>2446972>Fight It!>Specifically lets deliver a quick ember as it looks like a ghost type then try pokeballing it before we rush off, we don't have time for a protracted battle.
>>2446989I think it's a tear but it might be part of it's design like Wimpod who perpetually looks in distress.
>>2446972>>2446986This.>>2446989It seems to change between fury and sobbing depending on which eye I look at it with.
>>2446972>Ah, that's not Fevine. Better not waste time battling.Focus people!
>>2447017IT'S CUTE THO
>Oh! I'm sorry! I didn't mean to make you sad! I'll leave now!>I gotta knock it out so it doesn't wake other things up!>Better fucking run.
>>2447117>Try to cheer it up, give some encouraging words and feed it some snacks
>>2447119supporting, but this is giving me gobble feelz
>>2447117>Better fucking run.As much as I wanna be nice and help, mama's comin'.
>>2447117Crying ghost child. Why is there always a crying ghost child?We're probably going to get crunched for it, but this >>2447119
>>2447117>>Better fucking run.
>>2447117>Be nice to the ghost. We are not going to hurt you. O.k?
>>2447119SupportingBut also gib headpats to cute ghost
>>2447119support(why do I have a feeling its fevine)
>>2447200I hadn't thought of that. Now I can't think of anything else. It fits far too well with the situation and that dex entry.I really hope you're wrong, and we're just about to get mauled by mama Casper instead.
>>2447222>>2447200I thought the dex entry implied it was human souls, not pemans.
>>2447117>poketreats, poketreats, solve all your problems with bribes!
>>2447229>Believed to be the wandering souls of those who've died with fear and regretNo mention of human souls, just souls in general.
>>2447200Cripes, I hope not. That would be depressing as hell. I mean, grass and ghost are still pretty cool, but I'd have preferred what was probably grass and dark.
>>2447119THIS! We're gonna' be a fucking Pokemon Therapist before the end of this quest!
>>2447667OP here? No? Would like contact. Love art! Great quest! Can't be active. Apologies...
>>2447119Yeah alright, this.
>So how badly did this decision derail... everything?Since it is taking a while.

>No cruelin dude. I just wanted to know you were still interested.
>>2448543>>Time to fucking FIGHT.YOU WANT SOME OF ME?!
>>2448543>Time to fucking FIGHT.I AIN'T RUNNING
>>2448543>Time to fucking RUN.
>>2448543>Time to fucking RUN.Grab the Kreep and let's skedaddle.
>>2448543>Time to fucking RUN.We're not here to start shit.Wouldn't it be rude to be all nice to the child and then beat up the parent?
>>2448543>>Time to fucking OFFER them some fucking COOKIES tooThose are cookies, right? They look like cookies.
>>2448543>>2448567>>Time to fucking OFFER them some fucking COOKIES tooSeconding.
>>2448539>Time to fucking DO THE THING.>Start backing away slowly.>Were leaving see, Kreep is safe.>We do not want to fight, we are just looking for a lost child.>Be ready to dodge whatever attack and start running.>If you do not get butt blasted take off when your at a safe distance.
>>2448543>Time to fucking RUN.Yeah there's no way we're taking that thing out with only Cubcoal and thunderbird.
>>2448571Or this. This is amazing too.
>>2448567>says what they are right at the top of the first pageYep, cookies. Don't know how I missed that.
>>2448567>>2448571Aw heck, fine>Offer them some cookies and then if that plan fails run like hellQuest goal = act zanier than a twitch plays pokemon protag
>>2448567>>>Time to fucking OFFER them some fucking COOKIES tooIs it time for FRIENDSHIP?
>>2448567Well fighting that thing seems like a bad idea and running seems even worse so you know what fuck it let's go with this. I mean who doesn't like cookies
>>2447113>>2447117OH GOD THAT'S FEVINE ISN'T IT?!>>2448543>Time to fucking ASK IF IT'S SEEN A LOST KITTY!>>2448571I'll support this too.
>>2448543the giant evolved ghost thing seems like our friend. >Time to fucking OFFER them some fucking COOKIES toobut we should still keep some distance from the smaller one.
>Yeah, let's get out of here.>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!
>>2448706>Yeah, let's get out of here.Guess it doesn't like our treats, might as well go back to looking for Fevine.
>>2448706>>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!
>>2448706>>>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!holy shit we're gonna fucking die
>>2448706>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>2448706Throw some pocket sand grab cubboi and run
>>2448706>>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!>Get Chiwip out, have him use thunderwave on ghostie while it's distracted with Cubcoal, then grab Cubcoal and leg it.Also can't we just withdraw Cubcoal and run? Or do we have to be at a certain range first.
>>2448706>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!We aren't gonna out run this thing. But all together we have at least 4 pokemon so if we gang up on it we might get it to either flee or if we're skilled enough faint
>>2448706>>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!A REAL MAN WOULDN'T ABANDON HIS FRIENDS!
>>2448706>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!This is what happens when you don't take things seriously enough anons
>>2448753If we are gonna fight it we need to thunderwave it ASAP. It defo looks strong enough to OHKO both our pokes if that shadowball(?) hits. >>2448761Eh, running like hell would have given us a, like, 5 second head start on it at the most. Really we should have legged it when we saw little ghostie.
>>2448764Yeah we should debuff the shit out of that thing and I stress SCAN IT. If we know our enemy we can know whether we can beat it or not. If it's a grass type we have 2 fire types and a flying type in total so we could probably win. But if it's a ground type we need to get the fuck out
>>2448706>Cheese it, im gonna grab cub coal.>Chiwip Thunderwave!
Also>This isn't my first rodeo Jess.>Kitty use Ember!Normal type claws. Against a ghost type. Hah!
I would also like to remind the thread to take the opportunity to act like the pokemon veterans they are.You come back seeing a stranger giving your kid candy you beat their asses into the pavement. Or call the cops.This was a well intention ed plan, with a big potential pay off. But it was foolish.
>>2448706>>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!
I would recommend people stop using the QMs prompts unless they want to die.
>>2448819It was write-ins that lead us here actually.
A bunch of people planning to die is extremely vexing to me.Especially when we do not have a lot of lives to spare.
>>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!Changing to this.
>>2448706>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!I'll vote for this just to spite this guy. >>2448829
>>2448812>>2448819>>2448827Turn down the smug there buddy, you supported the cookie plan as well.Also it was write ins which got us to this situation in the first place anyway, QM was fine.
Another to keep in mind is that if Kreep knows sleep powder. So if it's still with us we might be able to use that to subdue it.
>>2448843If that's Kreep's parent/final evo, which seems like a safe assumption, it'll also be a Grass type, and therefore immune to powder moves.
>>2448706>Shove a cookie down it's throatYOU'RE GOING TO EAT THE TREAT AND YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE ITJokes aside,>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!There's no way we're going to be able to just grab Cubcoal of it;s back and run away, and we're not just gonna leave Cubcoal. Can't we just pop that repel I'm pretty sure we've got, if it comes down to it?
>>2448843No matter how many cookies we throw at it I doubt it'll be enough to convice Kreep to go against its parental unit. Also >>2448844
>>2448844Well if it is grass type then we could fucking gang rape the shit out of it with Cubcoal, Chiwip, and Munkit all at once so either option is actually not to bad
Alright ill turn down the smug.Im just worried.
>>2448706>No, Cubcoal wants to fight and so do I! We'll fight to the death!that thing is huge and has a projectile attack. Also it moves better in a forest. We're not running away in one piece.
Fight to the death just seems... extreme.
>>2448858you can worry while being less of an ass>>2448870Are you seriously taking those words literally? In pokemon?
>>2448872I... yes?Should I not be?Many people have said we could fucking die.
>>2448885We're not actually trying to kill the giant evolved ghost monster. That WOULD be suicidal.But if we're taking this more realistically, we need to show enough strength that cubcoal isn't going to be immediately slaughtered, while slowly backing away from their territory WITH cubcoal. Doing it quickly would only encourage more giant ghost blasts. In that sense, using ember moves that would actually harm it could be a bad idea while paralyze would at least make it easier to run.If we're being greedy, we could also 4v1 blitz and hope a pokeball saves our asses. Either way, some amount of fighting is needed.
>>2448904or was it 3v1? Not sure if Jess' sniffer has an attack that hurts ghosts.
>>2448885That's exactly why we should fight. Animals tend to prioritize survival if we can do damage it might back off but if we try to run from a 4 legged pokemon with a cannon-like attack that knows the forest better than us it'll 100% catch 2 people who probably aren't pro runners. You should also keep in mind it's a figure of speech I doubt Cole wants to just slaughter this pokemon I mean he offered the guy a cookie so he's not some blood thirsty barbarian>>2448911Isn't it dark type. It should have a dark type move which will deal super effective damage
>>2448851You can't defeat a level 40 grass behemoth with three level 5 STABs.
>>2448935Maybe 3 lvl 5 SE stabs?
>>2448935You actually maybe could over like 10 turns if they were all super effective.The problem is not getting hit yourself.
>>2448935sounds like you don't have enough potions
>>2448921At the moment we're too underlevelled to do much than slightly dent it, and even doing that will fuck our side up real good. We need to get it to back off long enough to grab Cubcoal and run. Paralyzing it also has the benefit of preventing it from giving chase after us.
>>2448935I'm wagering it's closer to like... 26~30, tops.
>>2448706>No! I can't leave Cubcoal behind! I'll grab him and leave!But supporting details in >>2448746 if possible.
>>2448935To be fair, this is more like the anime. "Levels" aren't a direct correlation to strength here. He is admittedly much larger then our Pokemon though, so I'd be doubtful of our chances to win. Abandoning Cubcoal's definitely not an option however. Could we try to get it's baby to, like, stick up for us? It seemed amicable enough before it's parent tried to erase us.
>>2448954Looks like a third stage evo to me. And I'd say that puts it at least to level 35. >>2448957If you want to take the level abstractions out of it, fine. I'll put it like this; we can't defeat this large, scary, powerful monster with our three little newborns. The guy said we'd "gangbang it," just because we have type advantage, which is ridiculous. We can't abandon Cubcoal, though, you're right. A head-on fight won't work, and the power of friendship has failed us. I'm not totally sure what to do except hope the Kreep calms down its mother or try to be smart about things. Have Chiwip Thunder Wave the beast, probably.
Well, on the bright side, the angry parent...probably means it isn't Fevine?
>>2448935The whole is greater than the sum if it's parts. People underestimate how much of an advantage numbers give you in a fight it's hard to fight 3 small targets all at once and it can get overwhelming really fast especially if we debuff it. Also I think levels aren't a thing like the in anime but I would like it if Glacier could confirm
>>2448706The danger here isn't just that thing, it's the threat of more showing up. That makes fighting a bad idea. Plus, running away makes sense given Cole's timid/cowardly demeanor.On the other hand, if we run, we have no idea how fast that thing is. Plus, Cubcoal probably isn't going to back down easily. And Cole seems self-aware enough to hate himself for his cowardice, perceived or otherwise. He's gotta draw a line in the sand somewhere.We can't run away without Cubcoal. If we run away without Cubcoal, we'll get turned into a Gengar or something. Cubcoal doesn't want to run. I don't know if he wants *us* to run or not. But we can't run without him. If we fight and live, we risk running into more nasties. If we run, we risk that *this* nasty is faster than us. Trainers die in these woods for a reason and this is probably one of them.However, if we choose to fight, Cubcoal's in its blind spot. If he can stay there, that's a pretty big advantage. And if by some miracle we win, Cubcoal has Moxie. Admittedly, that won't help too much against other ghosts, but..If we *do* decide to fight, we need to fight *dirty.* "Fight to the death" isn't hyperbole on the enemy's side, and we can't let it be on ours. We need to kill that which is already dead, even if we have to set the whole goddamn forest on fire. Though wet wood doesn't burn as easily as dry wood, so upsetting Smokey the Bear is probably going to be harder than it looks.When badgers pick fights with lions, the balls are an easy target. Y'know, at first I thought staying to fight was a dumb idea, but I keep thinking of more and more reasons to do it. We still don't know where Fevine is. This big ghost picked the fight with us. If it finds Fevine before we do... Then again, some other bad guy could find Fevine while we're distracted here. Whatever we decide to do, we should probably >Order Cubcoal to use Ember!Because he's using Scratch right now, and that's only worthwhile as a distraction. Which lends credence to the "buying us time" theory.If we have to distract the big guy for whatever reason, we can also blow a pokeball to "catch" him. There's no way in hell we'll *actually* catch him, but it'll distract him for a few precious seconds.
>>2448964I was feeling it was one of those where it only has a first and second stage, but we don't really know....Also, how does it have a parent when it's a ghost made from lost souls.
>>2448981Take that up with Game Freak making Ghosts able to breed. The short answer is that the ghost parent either kills things for their souls or gathers wayward souls floating about in the aether into a little ball in its uterus.
>>2448964Even with a thunder wave the chances of out running that thing are very low. I mean it can shoot shadow balls(?) that cause a huge ass explosion so turning our backs to it isn't the starters move. At least fighting shooting it with fire will might scare it away>>2448981People are just assuming their related nothing is confirmed at all that's why I'm saying we should scan it so we can plan accordingly
>>2448990Never said to run. Paralyzing it gives us an advantage during the fight. We don't know that it has Shadow Ball, but we can safely assume they're related given the similarity in design and appearance, and the fact that the larger one sought out the smaller one when it was crying/approached by a stranger.
>>2448976I'll stand for fighting dirty. I'm thinking we go for an eye though. We don't really know if thing has, y'know, genitals. Tbqh, I'm not too concerned for Fevine. He's a feline type Pokemon, known for their stealthy nature, nocturnal lifestyle, and forest habitat. This is probably just another day for him. This place is probably less dangerous then where he lives, if anything. I do say we see if we can have the kid calm it's parent down before we cement fighting as our only option though.
>>2448990Can't we just ask the sibling of the Pokemon professor, who seems fairly knowledgeable about Pokemon and is also right next to us?
>>2448976I might be just really forgetful but how has Cole shown that he's cowardly and timid. He choose the aggressive and borderline suicidal starter, went into the dangerous forest, fought the first thing he saw, challenged a kid to a battle cause he was rude, and went back into the forest to search for a cat at night. That doesn't seem like a cowardly or timid guy to me but I could just be forgetting some examples
>>2448966>>2448981Maybe it killed Fevine? Maybe once a ghost kills you it adopts you? Plenty of undead have a history of transforming others into more of themselves. Vampires and zombies are the best known, but plain ol' ghosts have a much easier time of it if you really think about it.>>2448981>>2448989>ghostblowjob.jpg>>2448997We just *saw* it use Shadow Ball. On us.>>2448696>>2448697...Okay, to be fair, that *could* be Energy Ball. 50/50 chance there.>>2449014He hasn't 'cause he has us. Maaaaaaybe I'm reading too much into what little we know of his backstory.
>>2448981>>2448989Ghost Pokemon lore is incongruent with Pokemon universal mechanics.Each stage of a ghost type has a different origin lore typically but they still evolve from each other.The conservative headcanon is that higher stages can come into being the way their dex entries describe but can also be evolved into naturally.
>>2448997It doesnt have to be shadow ball. It could be energy ball or aura sphere or something else. And it didn't look like it was responded to it's childs cries it wss just looming over us so I think it could go either way. I personally think they might be related in some way but that's still just an assumption at the end of the day>>2449005Eyes, under belly, and back/top all seem like the best places to attack. I assume Pokemon genitalia are like animals is that of an animals where it's not really out in the open unless it's time to fuck >>2449010Just cause she knows a lot about pokemon or is the Prof's. sis doesn't mean she knows all the details about every mon. The pokedex is an encyclopedia meant to store this data so it's probably more reliable
>>2449025Well I mean we are him. His personality and choices are decided by us. Of course Glacier takes some liberties with his character while he's drawing so that he has a more fleshed out personality but it's formed in huge part to our decisions. I just don't know where you got the impression that he's cowardly and timid. No offense but it just seems like your own head canon unless you got some examples of it.
>>2449038Yeh, but I'd rather ask the lady next to us who probably at least knows it's name and evolutions, rather then try and scan it with the machine that doesn't give out a tonne of info during combat, as the thing's shooting at us, and probably needs to be closer then we already are.
>>2449053Mostly I was thinking of the first page of the quest. Also the fact that he's a late bloomer, leaving home at 20 instead of becoming an adult at 10 years old.But yeah. Like I said, I might be reading too much into it.
>>2449057The pokedex gives name, evo's, type, moves, ability and useful dex info and take like 2 seconds to pull out. I don't know why you think she's can just list all the important info of some random pokemon especially in a dangerous and stressful situation like this. It's also distracted by Cubcoal and we could send out our other mons to add more pressure to it and the pokedex (in the anime at least which this quest is heavily inspired by) has scan pokemon from high up in the sky on several occasions so I don't think this is too much of a stretch especially considering it's size
>>2449075Do pokedexes not have a combat mode though, that limits information while fighting? Wouldn’t be very sporting to learn your opponents every strength and weakness in the midst of a battle.
>>2449126That's only for trainer pokemon wild pokemon are fair game though as seen in the Munkit battle
>>2449133Ah, fair enough. The dex is probably advisable then.
>>2448706>Return Cubcoal to the pokeball and run.

>>244954853 isn't SO bad.

>>2449603What system do you use that has 7 or 8 size classes?
>Withdraw Chiwip and Cubcoal while it's charging!>Dodge it and go for another attack!

>>2449618>Withdraw Chiwip and Cubcoal while it's charging!I feel like we got screwed by our opening salvo being terrible. Nothing to do about it, though.
>>2449618>>Withdraw Chiwip and Cubcoal while it's charging!
>>2449618Sheesh, Cubcoal got his ass kicked. Time to bravely withdraw our Pokemon and run away very quickly. Fun's fun but getting done in by some ghost rhino right out the gate of our adventure would be unfortunate. Fevine can survive a night, or has already been caught by someone. Back to the lodge!
>>2449618>>Withdraw Chiwip and Cubcoal while it's charging!>Throw pokeball for the delay.>Cheese it!

Rolled 5 (1d100)Y'know what, why not. It'll take a 100 to do anything, but let's see what happens, rolling for da Pokeball.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>2449637anon please.
>>2449637Well, that's disheartening.
>>2449634RNG is not my strong suit.>>2449639Thank you for the rebound, let's hope glacier counts it since you rolled twice.
>>2449643I was just snarking in the downtime, didn't actually mean for it to count towards anything.
>>2449647Let's just hope glacier counts it, that 90 will save us for sure. I don't think the 68 is gonna cut it.
>>244964890 would only seriously have a chance if it was paralyzed.If we seriously want to catch it, it would be better to Burn it and then run away, letting it injure itself in the process. But that would be not unlike jess catching a poke she didnt beat, and if we havent already called other beasties to play, this totally will.
>>2449618THAT BABY GHOST CAN HELP ANYTIME NOW
>>2449395Man, I hope the Kreep has a split line if it has high friendship so it doesn't have to evolve into a vengeful spirit
>>2449684>not wanting to command a behemoth incarnation of rage itself
>>2449618>Throw a pokeball at it>RUNThis should break it's concentration which will buy us more time. And if it does somehow work we could backtrack and grab it. Also what the fuck Jess don't just stand there send out your pokemon they both have type advantage!!!
>>2449632>>2449634>>2449637He didn't ask for rolls yet did he
>>2449684Ehhh, this ghost rhino thing's pretty cool, even if it's trying to kill us. I'd use one.
>>2449760Same here. Just hope that training Kreep isn't a pain in the ass like Magikarp or Azuril but catching the evolved form would negate that issue
>>2449684>>2449760I'm totally down to train up a Kreep. Wrathour is fucking rad.
>>2450366sounds like they are pretty angry pokemon though. They might not be able to evolve if they have a good trainer, because they don't turn bitter
>>2450404It might have a second evolution in that case.
>>2450404And Litwick lure people to their doom by sapping their life energy away while guiding them in circles. Doesn't mean if you catch one it'll drink your soul up. Salamence and Hydreigon are described as rampaging monsters, but there are Docile and Bashful examples of them as well. Don't put too much stock into dex entries. There's a difference between a Pokemon you domesticate and train, and one you just catch. If we raise a Kreep into a Wrathour, shit should be fine.
>>2450366Pokemon tend to mellow down a bit when they're caught. If they're bloodthirsty monsters they'll still be aggressive but they won't attack random children on sight or anything. Trained mons tend to vent their aggression and rage during battles. Plus we are on this things territory it does have a right to be kind of mad at us maybe not justified enough to shoot shadow balls but still it's not seeking out murder or anything it's probably just mad that we touched its kid
>>2449057...wait a sec...>Closer than it needs to be>Shadow Ball=ranged attack.>Shadow balls explode.I'm getting an idea. If we have to keep fighting it, we can bait it into using Shadow ball, then attack the ball itself, causing it to blow up in the monster's face!That aftermath ability worries me, though. Right now, I think we should run for it. Cubcoal's in range, and Chiwip's in the line of fire.>Withdraw Chiwip and Cubcoal while it's charging!>Time how long it takes for that guy to charge his Shadow Balls.
>>2450615That sounds dumb and I don't support it.
>>2450615If you had well-coordinated and trained pokemon, you could maybe try that.If you had level 20ish pokemon, it could actually be POSSIBLE.With the level of complexity some people are angling for, I suspect they want a different kind of monster.
>>2450867Well, when I first thought of it, I thought Cubcoal would be our gunner. Ember seems to have a spread-shot. I figured we could compensate for aim by using more bullets. Admittedly, not the best idea....actually, maybe using Thunder Wave on this guy at the right moment would have the same effect. That way, we don't have to hit such a small target, and even if it fails we still paralyze him. Assuming our previous Thunder Wave failed, that is. Anyway, if we try that, then our only issue is timing it just right.
>>2450876Or we could just run away. I mean, we wanna catch him, but that's clearly not happening, so let's just make a break for it after we withdraw Cubcoal and Chiwip, maybe toss a Pokeball to slow it down, then leg it.
>You didn't even help fight it off, so you shouldn't be talking.>Well, I didn't want you with me in the first place.>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.
>>2450990>>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.we were being pretty reckless honestly.
>>2450990>You didn't even help fight it off, so you shouldn't be talking....>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.Some salt and then apology time.
>>2450990>You didn't even help fight it off, so you shouldn't be talking.
>>2450990Her glares are not nearly as motivational as Seqoia's.
>>2451006Anon... I get the feeling they weren't supposed to be motivational...
>>2450990>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.>I guess pokemon in this region really are more dangerous, I'm sorry for putting us in danger like that, I really should have heeded all those warnings, this won't happen again, I promise.
>>2450990>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.>Go out and search for Fevine.Fevine first, Danger second
>>2451030No. It's too dangerous. Cubcoal is out of commission as it is. We'll just die. Fevine isn't worth it.
>>2451030>Fevinefags trying to get us killed
>>2451035>implying Cubcoalfags didn't cause this entire plot hook to happen by not choosing Fevine
>>2451035More like >HURR DURR COOKIES TO BIG ASS ANGRY MONSTER
>>2451013Seconding this. Apology followed by a dose of realism.
>>2451035>>2451037Friends, please. This is false flagging by the Nibdewfags to turn us against each other.We must rest and take care of who we have, and try our best in the morning. At best we can sit outside the pokecenter through the night, just in case.
>>2451037Cubcoal was chosen fair and square. Fevinefags bitching and moaning that they didn't get their way brought this plot hook.
>>2450990>I rather think that was smarter than running away while dodging giant explosive ghostly shit
>>2450990>>You didn't even help fight it off, so you shouldn't be talking.
>>2450990>>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.Besides, we're alive, riiight? S'all good,
>>2450990>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.>Thanks for sticking around anyway.>If you wanna take a less dangerous path by all means.
>>2450990>Look, I'm sorry, I just really wanted to find Fevine.>besides, I wasn't actually trying to fight it, that would be retarded. I just needed the opening to paralyze it with a pokeball then just have it chase after us while we ran.
>>2451011Speak for yourself
>>2450990>Bringing me alongWait what
>>2451302>>2451305Didn't we ask her to accompany us?
>Heal up the Pokemon and go to bed too.>Heal up the Pokemon and chill in the lodge for a snack or something.>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.
>>2451548>>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.
>>2451548>Heal up the Pokemon and go to bed too.Head back out in the morning.
>>2451548>>Heal up the Pokemon and go to bed too.
>>2451548My mind says>Heal up the Pokemon and go to bed too.But my hearts says>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.So out into the forest we go!
>>2451548>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.I feel like fevine will die if we don't.
>>2451566and will die along with us if we do. He's literally in his home element atm.
>>2451548We should probably rest and recover, but...>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.
>>2451548>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.Time to die, apparently.
>>2451548>heal up and camp right outside the lodge
>>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.>Get some coffee if you have too.
>>2451548>>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.It might be stupid, but fuck playing it safe, it would be against the entire spirit of Pokemon. >>2451606Coffee would be good yes, and a powerful spare flashlight if they have one.
>>2451548What have we done... she hates us now. :'(>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.It can't all be for nothing. Let's at least try to conclude this night with a happy ending. Sleep comes later.
>>2451762All is not lost! That hate made her glares more motivating.
>>2451763God, she's so hot. Been meaning to draw fan art for days now but my attention is needed elsewhere. I'll sketch something sooner or later.
>>2451548>Heal up Pokemon and go back out into the forest.>Ask Cubcoal and Chiwip if they still want to help find Fevine even when they know it's super dangerous.>Grab coffee and flashlight>Bring Repel or something>Internally acknowledge she's right but if you won't help Fevine, then who will?Wait, hear me out! Despite or /because/ of Cole's kinda timid nature, I imagine he knows what it was like to be lost and alone in a new place. Worse is that the new place is supremely deadly in addition to scary.He isn't stupid but he /is/ impulsive as shown by that lashing out even if he knows better. That's why I think he emphatizes with Fevine and wants to help because he sees a little of himself in Fevine and can't let it go.Basically a Naruto situation where we emphatize with someone too much
>>2451785I need you to understand that I have already voted in favor of doing this, but after reading your explanation for it, I am tempted to change my vote to not going out of sheer disgust and disagreement over all of your points.
>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Sorry, I guess? I could've died! You should really be more careful.>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?We can't afford to get distracted with bitching and petting rhyhorns!Also if he wants to help, can he tell us more about cryptocurrencies? Or cryptopokemons.
>>2451800>>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>If you do happen to see one, make sure you don't catch it, it's probably bonded to me, so being caught by another trainer would be bad for it.
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?
>>2451800>>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>I'm kind of surprised you didn't hear me screaming out the name for the past ten minutes
....when was the last time Cole saw a cat? When was the last time ANYONE saw a cat?
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?I wake up in the morning and see more Fevinefags want to get us killed. I guess some things never change
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?That motherfucker's ace was a Rhyhorn? Shit, where the hell do we get a Rhyhorn!
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>It ran off from the pokemon lab and Prof Aspen asked me to track it downCan't imply to our rival that we're stupid enough to let out own pokemon get away from us. Also>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?>>2451796Kreep? Nice to see you again but please keep your mom well away from us. And my God it totally IS Fevine right ;_;
>>2451800>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. He must be pretty strong if you're training out here at night.I don't see much harm in praising his pokemon, especially if it makes him hate us a little bit less, but from what we've seen I doubt he will want us petting him.
>>2451800>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Why do people spend so much time in the Death Woods?
>>2451800>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?Still have this feeling that he caught him. Or is going to catch him, now that we’re telling him. Oh well, it is what it is.
>>2451963Then again, we did give him a pokemon we could've caught ourselves. Maybe he'll return the favor and let us grab this one, assuming that, yeah, he didn't catch it already.
>>2451983That was Jess.
>>2451983That was the professors sister, not this guy. This is the guy we fought outside the lodge.
>>2451792Keikaku dooriNibdew shall have his day
>>2451800>It's cool. You're right about it not being safe out here.>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?>>2451875You don't get it. It's OUR fault Fevine's out here in the first place. That means it's our responsibility. Our problem. We have to make this right.I'm speaking as a Fevinefag who didn't even vote for Fevine, and who was against the "DUR MAYBE HE'LL RUN AWAY AND JOIN US AND WE CAN HAVE ALL THA STARTERS 'CUZ WE'RE A PROTAGONIST AND WE'RE SPESHUL" bullshit. Even though I liked the idea, I was afraid of what could have happened instead.Also, Seb doesn't seem like a bad guy right now. Glad we ran into him.
>>2452185How is it our fault? What were we supposed to choose Fevine becuase it was dumb enough to run away into the forest if we didn't? That's bullshit we chose the mon we wanted and Fevine got himself in this situation. It's HIS admittedly cute antics that got HIMSELF in this situation not ours.
Added chiwip to the cool gang I’ll improve it later AlsoWho trains their pokemon in the middle of the night?Especially in the middle of the forest?Hopefully he hasn’t caught fevine/is a cool enough dude to give it back.
>Hey! Seb, right? Have you happened to see a Fevine around here? Little black cat?>Woah, cool Rhyhorn. Can I pet it?Forgot to vote. Oops
>>2452215No. I'm blaming the people who wanted to have their cake and eat it too. The people who voted for Cubcoal because they thought they could have it both ways, as opposed to the people who voted for Cubcoal because they wanted fucking Cubcoal and the people who voted for Fevine because they wanted fucking Fevine.They could have been honest and voted for Fevine, and if Fevine had won, Cubcoal wouldn't have followed us because Cubcoal don't give a fuck. Instead they tried to have it both ways and led Fevine on as a result.
>>2452360But how did we lead Fevine on? We didn't vote if Fevine would follow us or not it decided to do that on his own. The people who voted for Cubcoal under the logic that Fevine might follow were correct. If we told Fevine to follow us then sure we're to blame but it seems the majority of people wanted only 1 starter. It's just the minority crying it always happens that doesn't make it the majorities fault. Fevine chose to do it so he's 100% to blame for this situation.
>>2452387I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're not meaning to come off as a total dick, but that is in fact what you are doing. Your arguments so far are summed up as:>Oh, that pokemon that is exceedingly loyal to the things it likes has escaped the lab to try and track us down because it really likes us.>And it's really dangerous outside, it could really be in trouble huh?>Well this isn't our problem at all. It shouldn't have liked us enough to try and come after us.>I can't believe you people are voting to get us killed to try and go find and help that thing which is risking its own life to try and find us.>Really, if it dies it's not our problem.This is one of those things where even if you're right, it doesn't make you correct. And that's ignoring the fact that we very obviously DID vote to try and coerce it into following us based on its dex entry, which had its own page specifically dedicated to it happening.
>>2451800Give him a sloppy brojob. No homo.
>>2452601>Run off GURRRL>Have nighttime bonding with edgy rivalI'm okay with this
>>2452415But what did we do wrong to make us responsible. This is all Fevine's fault and you expect us to go into the forest with dangerous pokemon in the middle of night with our baby starter and pidgey equivalent to find a a green cat in the middle of the forest at night because said cat didn't have the foresight to stop and think maybe this isn't the best idea. Fuck that we didn't do anything wrong here's what we did:>Saw all the starters >Said we liked Cubcoal the best but would like to see them all in action>Eventually bonded with Fevine>But chose the starter most people wantedVs what Fevine did>Liked a trainer>Travels out into the woods with dangerous pokemon >Causes everyone to worry about him and risk their lives trying to find themFevine did everything wrong and we did nothing wrong. No lead ons. Nothing. We made it clear that even though we like the guy we decided to journey with Cubcoal. And now you think the best course of action after getting our asses beat. Is to walk into the forest without our companion when it's even darker? That's suicide. I'm not saying we should completely ignore it but Fevine is literally in it's natural element. So why go on this suicide mission when it isn't our job to take care of Fevine and not just do it in the morning when the pokemon are much less dangerous and Jess has had time to rest and possibly forgive us. And as for the argument that we wanted this to happen you can look through the thread right now and see that most people don't want 2 starters so most clearly voted for Cubcoal because they wanted it.
>>2452987>Expecting Fevine (pokemon) to have the foresight / thought processes of a human Anon that's literally as stupid as expecting a dog and a human to have the same morals and thought process. Since when do animals (which are basically what pokemon are, only very slightly more intelligent) have any form of impulse control? Also before the idea of taking Cubcoal and Fevine following after us was brought up the Cubcoal and Fevine votes were tied. After the idea was brought up we got several people changing their Fevine vote to Cubcoal specifically because they wanted that situation to happen.
>>2452601hey man, nothing gay about a friendly bj out in the woods at night to let off steam after training
>>2453053My cat wouldn't walk into a fucking forest because it's instincts tell it to. Also pokemon are smarter than animals. Last time I checked my cat couldn't understand what I was saying. I assume pokemon have the same intelligence as dolphins or pigs but not humans. So they can think logically and have morality (like we've seen in the anime) but that can't make bombs or cities like humans can (but I will admit this last part is not confirmed so I guess it's just my head canon even though I think the anime supports this theory). And even if they weren't that smart we still didn't do anything wrong. Let me try to put it like this. If I cross the street and a my friends dog on the opposite side of the street likes me enough to chase after me and is gonna get hit by a car. Should I risk my life and shield the dog from traffic? No we didn't do anything wrong unless you count crossing the street wrong so it's the dogs fault. We shouldn't ignore the dog we should get it medical attention but we shouldn't risk our lives to save itAnd also you just proved what I was saying. It was a tie so an equal number of people wanted them but a minority wanted both so Cubcoal won. If glacier gave us an option to decide if Fevine would follow us and we voted for that then fair enough. But we didn't it was a minority of people who wanted both not the majority
>>2453114>My cat wouldn't walk into a fucking forest because it's instincts tell it to.Yes it fucking would you actual clown
>>2453129It depends on the cat really. My cat is a coward and is really jumpy to so it hates going out and I have a friend with a dog with the same problem. But another of my friends has a cat that likes to explore and get lost. And was it really necessary to insult me to get your point across
>>2453114>My cat wouldn't walk into a fucking forest because it's instincts tell it to.Are you forgetting that Fevine is literally a forest dweller? Why would it not go into familar terrain in chase of the person it bonded to? And also you bet your cat would happily prance into the forest if its hunter instincts were roused by a bird or something.>minority of people who wanted both not the majoritySpeak for youself anon, there were people who picked one over the other ONLY because picking a single pokemon was the sole option Glacier gave us, but would also have been happy taking both if the offer was on the table - I was one of them. Both suggestions involving Cubcoal and Fevine both joining us gained traction pretty quickly, and there were tons of anons commenting that it'll be a shame to leave behind the one who wasn'y picked / it was hard to chose between them. If anything it was the people who vocally wanted to stick to one pokemon that was the minority.
>>2452987>All Fevine's faultFevine's a pokemon. You can't hold this kind of behavior against him. He's following his nature and doesn't know better. >We did nothing wrong!Enough people wanted it that glacier put it in Cole's thought bubble, and then voted to pet Fevine in hopes of bonding with it enough to manipulate it emotionally.So you can argue that we as anons aren't responsible, and maybe you're right. I think you're wrong. Either way, it doesn't change the fact that Cole's responsible.>Most people don't want 2 starters so most clearly voted for Cubcoal because they wanted it.That's not how it works. Even if that's true, which I seriously doubt after having looked at the thread myself, it doesn't change the fact that *enough* people, regardless of whether or not they were a minority, were large enough to influence the actions above. Why are you being so adamant about this all of a sudden? Is it because I said it was our fault? You seem kind of fixated on the blame-game. I was blaming my fellow Fevinefags, not Cubcoalfags like you. But no, you're all "FEVINE'S FAULT! NOT OUR FAULT!" Who are you trying to convince here?...but hey, maybe you're right. After all, you've got a point. Fevine *is* in its natural habitat. Probably. It even has a type advantage. We don't know how long it's lived in the lab, so it's probably not rusty. And it knows to run away and hide rather than fight. Us giving it a boost of confidence wouldn't have affected that too much, right?It's not cowardly to abandon a friend that might be in danger, right?Yeah. Let's go with that. Justify it to ourselves that it's the smart thing to do. It's not cowardly to abandon a friend that might be in danger, right?I mean, I was the guy who thought Cole was timid. Chickening out on this will prove that. So really, I should totally agree with you.
>>2453182Yeah it's a foresr dweller that's my point it's safer than we would be if we rushed in there in the middle of the night so why rush in the middle of the night and risk a probable death. And also even if it's used ti forests still doesn't make it dangerous if it finds a hostile Chiwip or Munkit things could get dangerous and Fevine is a naturally cowardly pokemon it definitely has reasons why it shouldn't go into the forest with dangerous pokemon. And my cat probably would if it was starving and desperate but Fevine isn't it's just following us because it likes us. Yeah a minority of people switched over and that made a difference. It's not like Cubcoal started ti destroy Fevine in the number of votes it was a close vote decided because a minority wanted both
>>2453200iirc all three starters were brought into at around the same time that Cole arrived, so Fevine's instincts haven't dulled at all. The biggest danger to him is falling afoul of the native fire types (and since they're ground dwellers and Fevine's normally move about in the treetops that danger might be minminal) or being captured by someone else (...which would not be a problem is Aspen was even halfway competent and actually balled these super rare pokes the minute he got them).Also yeah from a meta prespective its totally the fault of us anons that we're in this situation, but Cole as a character didn't do much wrong. All he did was think (and one could even take that as wishful thinking) it would be nice to get both Cubcoal and Fevine, and then give Fevine some goodbye pets. If he actively made to give Fevine an escape route that would be another matter entirely, but if anything the in-quest person who's the most to blame is Aspen, because again if he was a competent professor that actually kept a proper eye on his research subjects Fevine wouldn't have been able to slip away in the first place.
>>2453200>then voted to pet Fevine in hopes of bonding with it enough to manipulate it emotionally.Cole pet the cat because it was a cute cat and they are nice to pet, not for some Machiavellian bullshit. >It's not cowardly to abandon a friend that might be in danger, right?We met it today and gave it a PAT PAT it's not our friend. It's an acquaintance. A cute one, at that. Cubcoal, is our friend. Chiwip, is our friend. Because we caught them, and like them, and we are responsible for their well being. Putting all three of us in danger to find the cat because Fevinefags can't let go is not fair to our friends or ourselves. Looking for it when things are not dangerous is fine, but when hulking forest ghosts are out and about firing off shadow balls into asses, we should probably lay low.
>>2453279Fevine and Chiwip should really on the same level - for both we only had a few hours with them and one battle to get to know them. We also clicked with them both of them in said battle.And we only got the forest ghost on out tail because anons were retarded enough to stick around and feed its baby cookies. The choices Glacier gave us there was run, FUCKING RUN and shut it up so it doesn't attract attention. Fevine shouldn't be blamed for us failing to read the mood on that one.
>>2453279To be fair, we have proven that we can evade bigger Pokémon though, if we need to. Besides, it’s high risk, true, but Fevine aside there’s likely a number of Pokémon that emerge at night that we’d have no chance of encountering in the day. Some are to much for us to handle, like that giant ghost rhino, but we can likely capture some of the weaker ones. I for one would rather like a Kreep. Who knows what other Pokémon might be about for us to catch? Besides, it’s given us an opportunity to chat with Seb after getting off on the wrong foot the first time around, even if we couldn’t necessarily have predicted such an occurrence.
>>2453200So if a pitbull attacks a child we shouldn't blame it for following it's aggressive nature? Of course we can blame it for making it's own decisions and even if we can't it's still not our fault. Also as I stated previously pokemon seem to be more intelligent than your average animal as they can understand people and even think things through as seen in the anime with the biggest example being Meowth. We never got the chance to vote for it Glacier just put that in because some people were talking about it. It wasn't like it was a complete wash some people wanted both but it was far from the minority we can see that in this thread with how a lot of people don't like the idea of having 2 starters. Also we didn't pet Cubcoal to emotionally manipulate it we just like the guy not every action we do toward it has some dark evil motive. I pet my cat cause I think it's cute not because I want to manipulate it to follow me.It was an even vote before people started to want both. It's not like Fevine was destroying Cubcoal and then it started to turn around. It wasn't hard to manipulate the choice it was still close at the end it was like what 55% vs 45% seems like a minority to me.I'm stating my argument for why going into the forest now was kind of a bad idea because it was relevant at the time. It's not like it's out of nowhere and I'm bringing this up 5 threads later. And I'm saying that Fevine was wrong because it was everyones worried about him making such a dumb choice how was that not wrong while we just chose another starter. What's cowardly about not wanting to go into the forest at night filled with dangerous pokemon that probably want to kill us to save a black and green cat in the middle of the forest at night whose probably fine considering it was stated that they're good at hiding themselves. There's a difference between not wanting to die and being a coward
>>2452185>>2452215>>2452360>>2452387>>2452415>>2452987>>2453053>>2453114>>2453129>>2453179>>2453182>>2453200>>2453232>>2453249>>2453279>>2453326>>2453328>>2453341Is this how you guys are going to spend your Friday? Really?
>>2453403Yyyyup. Not got anything better to do. Besides, don’t really care either way, just like debating.
>>2453326>>2453326Yeah but we chose to catch Chiwip so she is our responsibility now. We invited her to join the team and so we gotta look out for each other. But Fevine is just some cute little cat that we like. Saving him isn't a responsibility it's something we're doing out if kindness and because we like the guyIt was gonna attack us anyway anon it's not like the cookie is what started the whole thing. And you gotta admit all the choices were kinda shitty. Out running that thing was a stretch and battling was an uphill battle so people wanted to try the peacefully (and admittedly stupid) route. I don't really mind too much
>>2453403Yeah why is there a right way to spend your friday. If there is I would like the guidebook
>>2453419To be honest the only option Glacier gave which may have blown up in our faces was physically making Kreep be quiet. Walking in on us messing with its baby was really what sent mama Ghost Rhino into attack mode, if we'd chosen to leg it as soon as we'd spotted the baby we might have either a) avoided mama entirely or b)mama might not have taken us as a threat which needed to be removed. Honestly Glacier was telegraphing pretty damn hard that, cute as it was, Kreep was bad news (and also Jess did say that the forest had nasties in it at night to drive the point home) but it flew over most people's heads. Also technically Fevine IS one of our responsiblities too, a work one rather and a trainer one. Our boss did task us with tracking him down before he gets captured.
>>2453451Aren't we just the research assistant? That was the deal right we just explore and research Maho and we get a starter. What does Fevine have to do with that it isn't part of the job description to locate lost pokemon and even if it was I'm sure Aspen would encourage waiting till tomorrow when it's safer to look.
>>2453501See>>2443745 and >>2444051Aspen specifically called us up to ask if we can track down Fevine, because he's escaped the lab and is most likely headed after us.Though yeah he'd probably advise not to go waltzing into the woods at night, I agree.
>>2453341>PitbullsOkay, I'll bite. Pitbulls don't have a more or less aggressive nature as a breed. That's a stereotype unintentionally created by people behind a media campaign that was, ironically, trying to stop dogfighting but ended up glorifying it instead. Also, most "pitbull" attacks aren't actually Pitbull Terriers. There's a bunch of breeds that look similar and most people don't know the difference on sight. I mean, why would they?So in your case, I'd take a look at the owner. Assuming the owner did everything reasonable to prevent it from happening/warn people that it might be a problem if it seemed likely, and assuming the kid didn't provoke the dog, and assuming the dog isn't a fighting dog or ex-fighting dog, then sure we can blame the dog if blaming the dog means so much to you. We can also blame it if it's a wild dog, because it's not civilized/domesticated. It's not the dog's fault it's not domesticated, but at that point there's nobody else to blame, and we *have* to blame *something* don't we?As for Fevine, fine. It's true pokemon are a lot more intelligent than your average animal. But if you're gonna play the blame game, you have to blame *everyone.* The only way to "win" the blame game is to have someone maliciously attack you through absolutely no fault of your own or something. Otherwise, there's plenty of blame to go around.I'll concede that Fevine bears the responsibility for its own decisions. I overreacted in the opposite direction because you were all "IT'S 100% FEVINE'S FAULT AND 0% OURS" and I disagreed. I still do. I'm positive that manipulative intent, however benign, was present. But that's no excuse for over-correcting. Once we find Fevine, we need to give him a stern talking-to about this kind of dangerous behavior--which, I also concede that, given the fact that he's on his home turf, he probably didn't see as dangerous--and worrying everyone, for his own good and for the good of those of us who care about him. But I still believe that we bear some blame and responsibility for our actions too. Cole himself less than the Fevinefags, but still a little bit. >>2453249This guy raises a good point. I'm willing to allot a good portion of the blame to Aspen for not having his shit together. Thinking about it, I wonder if he's doing it on purpose? This seems like the sort of ploy a mysterious mentor figure would pull.
>>2453529Yeah but our job is to research Maho not to do whatever Aspen says. And it's not like he's our boss it was more we made a deal with him. A starter for research
>>2453547Cool thanks for lesson I guess but my point was less about pitbulls and more about an aggressive animal pitbulls were kind of a strawman to show that an animal can be blamed for it's own actions despite not knowing better and shouldn't be excused just on the basis that it's an animalAs for the blame game thing I don't see the need to blame everyone. Just Fevine for making a dumb decision that'll worry everybody and Aspen for being an irresponsible owner. I can't really stop you from thinking that we didn't pet Fevine with malicious intent. I can bring up an argument about how we put Fevine before the whole 2 starter thing happened or how even if some anons did vote to pet him with malicious intent they're probably in the minority and even if they weren't Cole clearly didn't have any malicious intent but at the end of the day I can't stop you to each their own my friend. And I agree we should scold him for his dangerous (and admittedly cute) behaviour. He really did make everyone worried even if he is probably fine.Btw why the mentor thing would be pretty funny. Imagine if he was super smart and trying to go through a very roundabout way of giving us all 3 starters so that he could be the coolest professor without getting yelled at by Seqouia
>Surely they must mean well, and are just impassione->>2452987>>2453114>>2453341>>2453600Oh. Well. I was wrong, I guess.This is nibdewfag behavior, friends. Look at the meaningless anarchy and vitriol they spew to sew the seeds of bitterness and discord. You can see their true colors when they try to divide us for their own petty satisfaction. Stand strong together, our wonderful pokemon journey depends on comradery doing our best together. Do not be led astray.
>>2454266Sauce me on that comfy looking manga, senpai?
>>2454274I have spent about a half hour trying to find it, but I've failed you. It's something I saved without context a while ago and just had laying around.
>>2454409I think it might be chichi to hige gorilla to watashiI'm reading through it now but the girl and man look like matches.
>>2454422Oh, you're right. They look really similar, good job anon!
Sooo is Glacier dead or something?
>>2454532probably just busy for the day, they let us know if they'll be away for the weekend so maybe there'll be an update tonight?
It seems that Fevine fans would rather have another starter pokemon like special boys instead of a human travel partner
>>2454579>1 post by this IDThe nibdewfags at work once again. The absolute state of people who have nothing better to do than try to divide us.
>>2454590I just dislike the idea of filling another team slot with a second starter rather than give Glacier some input with a human companion, hence why I didn't call them Fevine fags
>>2454616I don't think it's really an issue. We're getting to know Seb more because of it, and even if Jess is frustrated with us, I think we'll have a good relationship with her anyway. She may be irritated at us now, but she doesn't seem like the kind of person who would it against us if we do something stupid with good intentions.Honestly I think there's just been a big kerfuffle over nothing. We're all gonna be fine and make friends, and have fun.
>>2454625I guess, I personally prefer the idea of keeping open spaces in case we find something cool than Fevine but i agree that it is cool to learn more about Silver 2.0. I just hope that we'll have less arguments in the future over decisions being made
>>2454635We can always store pokemon and rotate them around, or send them back to Aspen's lab for study. I don't feel like we'll only ever that initial roster and never catch anymore after that - Though I bet we'll bicker a lot later on when we start trying to decide who to swap in or out.And remember, arguments come from two sources! The good intentioned people who care a lot about what's happening but all ultimately want us to be happy, and the nibdewfags! One can be reasoned with and compromises can be made with friendship and understanding! The other is a poison seeking to turn you against your neighbor.
>>2454645[Just a quick comment on this, yes you can use PCs to swap Pokemon, or send them to the lab! And yes an update is happening tonight!]
>>2454422https://mangarock.com/manga/mrs-serie-100084226/chapter/mrs-chapter-100098772 You were right!
>>2454647Do you have an expected time for the update
>Fine, I will. Goodbye to you then.>Hey, don't be like that. Maybe we can train together.>Wait, that old lady mentioned something about cryptic Pokemon. Can you tell me what that's about?
>>2454676>Wait, that old lady mentioned something about cryptic Pokemon. Can you tell me what that's about?And then>Fine, I will. Goodbye to you then.But maybe nicer. He doesn't seem like that much of a jerk on second encounter, just kind of a loner.
>>2454676>Fine, I will. Goodbye to you then.Best to end this relatively amicably I think
>>2454676>Wait, that old lady mentioned something about cryptic Pokemon. Can you tell me what that's about?>>2454677Nani!
>>2454676>Fine, I will. Goodbye to you then
>>2454676>>Hey, don't be like that. Maybe we can train together.
>>2454676>>Wait, that old lady mentioned something about cryptic Pokemon. Can you tell me what that's about?
>>2454676>Fine, I will. Goodbye to you then.
>>2453403As annoying as it seems, Anons arguing means there is interest in this Quest. People invested in this story. Compare this to the Quests that have one response every half hour, that only quote the update for voting purposes, without any actual discussion.This is life, activity. People are putting their thoughts into this, and I think it's great.
>Yeah, you're a godamn idiot for chasing after those things! >What? No I'm actually interested in learning more about them, please.
>>2454861>What? No, I know we started on the wrong foot, but I'm actually interested in learning more about them, please.
>>2454861>What? No I'm actually interested in learning more about them, please.Can we also point out the glaring logic loop of "Hey we don't know much about the pokemon of this region!" followed by "What? Sightings of an unidentified pokemon? Pfft, like those exist".
>>2454861>>What? No I'm actually interested in learning more about them, please.It's a gigantic sludge shapeshifting derpmon, isn't it?
guys it's not too late to suck his dick
>>2454861>>What? No I'm actually interested in learning more about them, please.>It certainly wouldn't be the first pokemon I've seen unique to the Maho region
>>2454861>What? No I'm actually interested in learning more about them, please.Also yeah seconding >>2454866and point out that, from a foreigner's perspective, it seems silly to write something off as being fake when so much of Maho is undiscovered.
>Can you specify each Pokemon?>Why are you searching for them? And for how long?>Well, Maho is mostly undiscovered...so all of this just seems really off to me.
>>2454989>Can you specify each Pokemon?>Why are you searching for them? And for how long?>Well, Maho is mostly undiscovered...so all of this just seems really off to me.Glacier plz take your time to info dump us. The only reason we won't ask every question is if we want to leave and get back to fevine hunting.
>>2454989>Can you specify each Pokemon?>Why are you searching for them? And for how long?>Have you ever seen one?>Do you think these might be legendary pokemon or just rare ones?
>>2454992[permission to info dump granted! initiate info dump.]
>>2454994Oh also, in addition to this:>Ask to add him on you pokedex contacts, you know, in case you find any of these cryptic pokemons
>>2454989>>Can you specify each Pokemon?>>Why are you searching for them? And for how long?>>Well, Maho is mostly undiscovered...so all of this just seems really off to me.Can we have, just, all of the things?
>>2454989>>2455000Actually I like this idea. Build that friend list!
>>2454989>Well, Maho is mostly undiscovered...so all of this just seems really off to me.>You think a felvine not in its natural habitat would coax one out?
>>2454989>Can you specify each Pokemon?>Why are you searching for them? And for how long?>Well, Maho is mostly undiscovered...so all of this just seems really off to me.ALL OF THE INFODUMPAlso if Fevine is tracking us by scent, sticking around in one place might up the chances of him homing in on us.
>>2454676>Fine, I will. Goodbye to you then.>Ask if it's okay to exchange contact nos. In case he finds FevineCommon sense ahoy!
>Which one are you looking for in particular?>Well that was really interesting, but I should really get going.>Other.
>>2455215>Which one are you looking for in particular?
>>2455215>Which one are you looking for in particular?>It sounds like you have something motivating you to look for these pokemon, I won't ask what it is, but I'll be rooting for you while keeping an eye out. Give me your contact info so I can text you in case I find any clues.
>>2455215>Which one are you looking for in particular?>The Professor has basically tasked me to explore what I can of Maho. I'll keep my eyes peeled for them - can I have your number so I can give you aheads up if I see anything interesting?Must. Get. Number.Also Glacier which timezone do you even run from?
>>2455214That Caracabra is totally a sunstone evo of Chiwip
>>2455215>you say search, but has anyone just tried raising different pokemon in those areas and finding unusual evolutions?>Well that was really interesting, but I should really get going.
>>2455215>Which one are you looking for in particular?Fevine is probably safe in the trees. It can wait a 1-2 minute conversation.>>2455225Why would a bird evolve into the chupacabra pokemon?
>>2455223Actually you know what this sounds good changing to this
>>2455213wyndalore looks and sounds badass af. We gon find that boi and catch 'im
>>2455303Why does a fish evolve into an octopus? Or a set of magnets into more sets of magnets? What about those eggs that turn into a palm tree?
>>2455448>What about those eggs that turn into a palm tree?to be fair that one's because the seed of the species of palm tree Eggsecutor is based of looks like eggs.
>>2455215>Go look for Fevine.
>>2455448Remoraid evolves into octillary becuase Remoraid is based off of the archer fish and designed to look slightly like a gun and it evolves into a cannon which fits an octopus more than a fish. And I don't see what's so wrong about Magnemite there are probably better examples than him
>>2455215>>Which one are you looking for in particular?
>>2455213>>2455214These dudes sound rather like legendaries tbqh, what with the environmental effects they supposedly cause. Speaking of, can we ask this guy if there’s any confirmed legendaries in the region? We never really found out from anyone. If not, aren’t these guys probably just this regions legendaries? If there only one or two that explains their rarity, and the effect they have on the environment. Besides, thirty years really doesn’t seem like that long for a Pokémon to remain undiscovered, especially if there’s only one or a couple of each. The gaps between Pokémon like Kyogre or Rayquaza being spotted are probably just as long.
>>2455215>Which one are you looking for in particular?>>2455640Something something shark with frickin' laser beams.
>>2455949>Besides, thirty years really doesn’t seem like that long for a Pokémon to remain undiscoveredyou would think so but the irl cases of new species being discovered or rediscovered hundreds of years after settling in a place are a lot hell if anything the fact that these pokemon are so rare would make them harder to discover given that the behaviour of a single organism is harder to predict compared to a whole community of the same. I'm pretty sure all the knowledge of cryptic pokemon are mostly gossip passed down from the locals.
>>2456210Oh yeah, that does bring up the question about aboriginal peoples. We know the area was “Civilized” 30 years ago, but does that mean that that was when humans first moved into the region, or that it was the first time settlers came in from other regions? Are there people who were native to the area before settlers came through?
>>2455215>>Well that was really interesting, but I should really get going.
So I'm can't be the only one who thinks Seb is the best now right. Before he was kind of a dick with expression like pic related. But now that I'm seeing a wider range of emotions from him such as >>2455215 he's much easier to sympathise with especially after seeing that he can be a chill guy
>>2456754The best kind of edgy rivals are the edgy rivals that aren't actually edgy they are just so awkward they seem edgy at first glance.Like Todoroki in my hero.
>>2456754He seems like a decent sort, yeah, though still a bit abrasive. I can sympathize though, as I expect that abrasiveness has been born of a constant mockery of his passion for cryptic Pokémon by others.
>>2456754Please he's not edgy he's just a big ol' tsundere conspiracy geek.Also coloured version of him w h e n
>>2456978We need a color version of cole first. But it would be cool if Glacier made a pic with Cole, Seb, and Jess
Dead Glacier is worst Glacier
>Without an open mind you can't learn anything new! I appreciate it, you're not so bad yourself.>Yeah you were a huge ass but that's alright.>That's kind of gay, let's tone it back a bit.
>>2458963You didn't give us an option to hug him.So I'm making one.>Hug him
>>2458968That seems a bit much. I'd rather go for like a pat on the back or a hand on the shoulder.
>>2458972I was actually aiming for it being a bit much. The scene ideally was something like an attempted hug that gets awkwardly shutdown, ruining the moment.
>>2458963>Without an open mind you can't learn anything new! I appreciate it, you're not so bad yourself.>Give him a pat on the back.>Look for Fevine already
>>2458977Fair enough. I'd back that.
>>2458963>>2458963>>Without an open mind you can't learn anything new! I appreciate it, you're not so bad yourself.
>>2458963>Yeah man, apology accepted. I was probably a little too sensitive, at that. First day and all. We're cool. See you around.>shake his hand
>>2458963>>Without an open mind you can't learn anything new! I appreciate it, you're not so bad yourself.This whole encounter feels a little GAY.
>>2459075Seconded, though yeah we do need to get back to the great Fevine hunt.
>>2459075I’ll support this.
>>2459087Only a little?
>>2458963>So you say, but my "open mind" just attempted to give treats to a giant ghostly grass demon, so who knows if it's really a good thing!
If this whole Social Link Arc bullshit with our rival doesn't end in yaoi some 2/3 to 3/4 of the way through the story I will be SORELY disappointed in /qst/
>>2458963>>That's kind of gay, let's tone it back a bit.
>>2458963>Without an open mind you can't learn anything new! I appreciate it, you're not so bad yourself.>Yeah you were a huge ass but that's alright.Also because >>2458968 suggested it>Hug him
>>2458963>>2458983This. Hugging him at this point is gonna spook him we need to level up the social link at bit first >>2459503Hey man this is just some totally heterosexual nighttime bonding with our rival okay??? Being real that would be amazing tho. Must husbando the tsundere
>We can't give in...we must keep looking! He might still be out there!>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.>We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.
>>2459662>>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.Just collapse.
>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.
>>2459662>>We can't give in...we must keep looking! He might still be out there!We're going to get back after all this and find out Fevine was just hidden up a tree back at the lab, aren't we.
>>2459662>We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.
>>2459662>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.>Chiwip, if you see any sign of him just... shock me awake okayIn our state we'll probably miss Fevine even if he had a massive neon sign pointing out his location. Also if he's tracking us by scent staying in one place will only help.
>>2459662>We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.In a safer region, this is just the sort of thing you would expect a young man to go to and learn some stereotypical lessons on "the right thing" and stuff.
>>2459662Just a quick nap
>>2459669Or Fevine actually made it to the lodge while we were wandering around the woods screaming our lungs out like an idiot.
>>2459662Forgot to fucking vote>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap
>>2459662How far is the lodge? If it's relatively close then I vote for >We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.If it's far away then I'll go for>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.Chiwip and Cole deserve a small nap. Ask Cubcoal if he can keep watch while we sleep and wake us if anything happens
>>2459662>We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.Taking a nap in a forest full of hostile flame rodents and evil ghosts is a bad idea.Also>Contact the Prof on the way and see if maybe Fevine came back home while you were looking for him.
>>2459799I'll change to this that sounds like a good idea
>>2459662>>We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.
>>2459662>>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.I cant believe we fucking died(We wake up to Fevine licking us right.... r-right?)
>>2459662>We should see if we can make it back to the lodge before I pass out.I’m going to laugh if we come back to Fevine chilling out at the lodge.
>>2459839That's probably what it's gonna be. I'm gonna give him a noogie for chillin in the lodge while we're out risking our lives though
>>2459662>I should just take...a quick nap...just a small nap.Sleeeeep
>>2459662>Chiwip, what do you think I should I do?>>2458968That's kind of gay, let's tone it back a bit.but i approve.it'd be funny if that won and the result was a constant battle of gay chicken between us and our rival.
>>2459921or we could just be gaytime for open minded
>>2458963Next time we see him, we need to stick a finger in his pooper in order to solidify our new friendship.
>>2463059is he daijobu?

[Probably gonna end the thread on this post and make a new thread tomorrow!]
>>2463139Really enjoying this quest mate, sorry we keep making dumb decisions.
>>2463142[Haha, the dumb decisions are what make it fun for me! I'm very happy people are enjoying this quest and I apologize for any number of plot holes that might pop up in the future on account of my poor writing!]
>>2463065>Wait- where the hell am I?>Please try to relax. There is plenty of time. I need to tell you something. Please listen and try not to panic. You've been in a coma for quite some time. Yes, yes, I know. You'd like to know how long. I'm afraid it's been... nine years.

>>2464686He's got the wholeeee worldin his ball
