Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.Write-ins for all votes are always welcome and encouraged. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as circumstances warrant.Combat mechanics involve three rolls of 1d100, taking the best, and using the base accuracy and crit ranges of the the PTU system, roughly, but the 'turn order' will be more like the anime, where sometimes you can do a few moves in a row or be hit by a combo of moves yourself, all depending on circumstances. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves and also may leave you open to an interrupt, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Pokemon and trainers are unique, and may have certain specializations, skills, or other things that the video-game mechanics might not allow. Some examples: That kung fu Bellsprout in the anime, that crystal Onix, or a Roggenrolla that can fly. Herb's perception skills, pokemon knowledge, context clues in general, and other things will hopefully come into play to avoid completely unfair, unforeseeable bullshit, but expect more bullshit from more advanced trainers.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roserade)Dice (Feraligatr)Sorbet (Vulpix)Ghost Pepper (Rotom)Location: Eelilee Festival groundsRecently: Herb entered an amateur contest battle tournament.

“What happened, Pepper? Why didn’t you come out?”Ghost Pepper makes a low, almost sad electric noise. You think that was basically a sigh, but you’re only able to confirm that when you look to Gardevoir and get no translation of any ‘words.’“Come on, Ghost Pepper. If something’s wrong, I want to help. That’s why I need to know. I’m worried about you.”Pepper peaks up a little. It’s eyes examine you. Strange, sober, analyzing eyes you’re seeing for the first time. With a blink, they’re gone, and you see the goofier Pepper again. “I was still exploring inside of it. To be denied the ability to explore is as much a prison as where you found me.” Words flow through Gardevoir into your head.The crystal you found Ghost Pepper in was a prison?>That was a prison? You poor soul!>That was a prison? Who put you there?>That was a prison? What did you do to be put in there?>Pepper still needs to learn to listen. It’s a matter of safety, as well as trust>He owes you and Belladonna and apology for endangering her upcoming contest battle>Did he find anything interesting?>Something else
>>3431118>Did he find anything interesting?>Pepper still needs to learn to listen. It’s a matter of safety, as well as trust
>>3431118>>Pepper still needs to learn to listen. It’s a matter of safety, as well as trust>If you want to explore let me know ahead of time, not while we're in a battle, I thought you were hurt!
>>3431118>That was a prison? Who put you there?>Did he find anything interesting?>>3431138also this.
”You still need to listen, Ghost Pepper. Safety and trust go hand in hand. I thought you were hurt!” Your voice cracks a little. The mental image of one of your pokemon being hurt because you weren’t giving them enough reason to trust you is enough to let you forgive yourself for having such an immature vocal cord.Pepper zips back a few inches. You didn’t give him any reason to be afraid, but he still does it. That’s another thing bothering you.You inhale deeply, gathering your thoughts with the air, then respond. “Pepper. If you want to explore, or do anything else, just let me know ahead of time. But not when we’re in a battle. That’s dangerous. You understand that, right?”“Well I’m not stupid. But it wasn’t dangerous.” Pepper’s words come through Gardevoir’s flat voice. That makes the tone a bit hard to pick up, but the body language he uses is enough to get the idea. Your brother, as kind and patient as he is, still also gets a little frustrated when he feels he already knows what you’re trying to teach him.“Well alright.” You put the issue to bed for now. “Did you find anything interesting?”Pepper, despite completely ignoring the laws of gravity, looks lighter somehow. He grins. “Shoddy work. Electric temple garbage! Not like Hana at all. That’s a well put-together girl! I’m going to go explore!” Wow. When he has words he sounds like an entirely different pokemon from the one you thought you were getting to know.He zooms over to play with Hana, who is sitting on a bench with Tirtouga in her lap and playing with her Pokedex next to Abigail. He disappears into her hand, and it taps Abigail on the opposite shoulder to both girls’ surprise.Gardevoir stays uncomfortably close to your side but doesn't say anything or seem to expect any reaction from you.You glance back at the judges. Your next opponent, a Loanan girl about your age, is performing stretches with three pokemon. A huge necked Exeggutor, a Slugma, and one you don’t know that looks like a happy, floating circle of flowers. Both of the Grass pokemon look uncomfortably close to Slugma from your point of view, but seem unbothered by it. That trainer looks friendly, but serious.Belladonna wants to run over there and see them before your battle. You normally wouldn’t mind, but you do have to admit you’re seeing a bit of a pattern with contest enthusiasts that’s making you a little wary.>Go say hi and take Belladonna with you>Go on Belladonna, you’ll stay here>Do stretches and preparation with Belladonna so you’re as ready as can be>Belladonna, maybe we should wait for a better chance to utilize you>Something else
>>3431270>>Go say hi and take Belladonna with you
>>3431270>Not like Hana at all. That’s a well put-together girl!Shit, this guy's growing on me.>Go say hi and take Belladonna with you
>>3431270>Go say hi and take Belladonna with you>Something elseAsk Bella if she's sure she wants to fight against someone who has pokemon that might burn her flowers. It might make her look less pretty for later battles!Also, is the continual usage of he in regards to Pepper a reflection of what gender Herb regards them as?
>>3431289>Also, is the continual usage of he in regards to Pepper a reflection of what gender Herb regards them as?[Yup. I'm not sure if Herb settled on a gender or not with regards to Pepper, so it changes depending on Herb's perception of the moment. If anons have a preference for Herb's mindset on it, let me know!]
>>3431315My plan was to ask Gardevoir if Pokémon-ese had pronouns, and if yes, to ask which pepper prefers. If not, we can still ask if they have a gender identity.
>>3431315>>3431349Pretty much this
>>3431315I mean, which is weirder to have possess Hana's arm at a sensitive moment? That's the real question.
“Sure, Bella. Let’s go say h-” She’s already running off ahead. At least she waited until you said “sure.”You make the short distance in time to hear the girl responding to Belladonna. “Well it’s nice you meet you.” She bows to Belladonna, then to you as you approach. “I’m Loke of Puku.”“I’m Herb. Uh, my house is on Kaitwe.” You bow back.Bella remembers her manners too and also bows. Loke laughs at the cute display. Pokemon bowing seems like a novelty. Belladonna frowns in reaction to being laughed at, but doesn’t make a show of being upset.“Come to scout out the competition?” She asks. Behind her, the very, very tall Exeggutor lowers it’s neck at Belladonna. “There’s no competition here.” Gardevoir says out loud on it’s behalf from right behind you, startling you, Belladonna, and the three other pokemon.“What did she s-...she can talk!” Loke gasps. “That’s amazing! But what are you even doing here if you have that kind of pokemon? This is an amatuer tournament! Be sporting! A talking pokemon is like... like... an instant win!”Belladonna harumph’s and steps up to Executor's face. Her head as to go way back as he returns to his full height and looks down upon her. She seems even more upset over that, even if she loses her balance a little from looking directly up while being pouty. She looks back at you and her eyes become huge and soft. She’s looking for your support against being dismissed.>Laugh. Everyone is being dramatic over a silly contest>Explain that Gardevoir isn’t anyone’s pokemon>Belladonna shouldn’t be dismissed, Exeggutor>Avoid trouble and just wish her luck. Come on, Belladonna, let’s go back>Something else
>>3431393I'm not gonna lie, every single one of those options besides the second seem pretty cunty for herb to say You alright gobble?
>>3431393>Avoid trouble and just wish her luck. Come on, Belladonna, let’s go backGive her a pep talk/cheer her up without bothering with the exeggutor.
>>3431393>She's not my Pokémon, Belladonna is my Pokémon. Gardevoir was just speaking for her friend... I think. Bella can be a little competitive.
>>3431393>Laugh. Everyone is being dramatic over a silly contest>Explain that Gardevoir isn’t anyone’s pokemon
>>3431429>>3431393Actually, this is a lot better. Changing my vote to this
>>3431393>Avoid trouble and just wish her luck. Come on, Belladonna, let’s go back
Gardevoir’s shown herself to be somewhat prideful before, she may have been asserting that she herself could trounce Exeggcutor, especially considering the whole fairy/dragon thing.It’ll be interesting to see how this differs from the last time Bella fought an Alolan Exeggcutor.
“She’s not my pokemon. Belladonna is my pokemon. Gardevoir was just speaking for her friend...I think.”“I spoke for Eggxecutor.” She corrects you. There’s the tiniest hint of amusement and defiance from her tone as she looks up at the tall Pokemon. Compared to her usual flat self, that subtle amount of emotion still stands out quite a bit to you.Oh. You understand why Belladonna got upset. Still, you want to keep the peace. You bend down to Belladonna, who pouts at you intensely. “Bella, don’t sweat it. You’re great, and win or lose, we’ll have a lot of fun. Come, let’s go get ready.”Belladonna nods and begrudgingly follow you, but seems to fall deeper into an enthusiastic and happier mindset after a few seconds.“Hey, wait!” Loke stops you and Belladonna. She hesitates once you turn around and takes a second to figure out how to phrase why she stopped you. “Let’s have a good match. And I’d love to talk to your po...your Gardevoir friend, after we’re done.”Bella throws up her arms.“And you too, Belladonna.” She adds quickly to appease your feisty little flower. Her Exeggutor gives a less than friendly look, but Loke looks embarrassed by the open hostility from her pokemon and makes a gesture for it to stop it. Her pokemon listens, and doesn't dismiss the gesture, but doesn't seem sorry either.Before you can say anything in response though, the judges instruct you to get to your spot. You hurry into position.Bella runs into her spot too, looking exceedingly eager. She plays with her Black Sludge, looks up at the shiny sunlight, and then back at you. She’s very, very confident, bordering on arrogant.>Give a simple thumbs up. A simple gesture of approval and encouragement>Psych her up even more! Really get her going! Yeah! Go Bella!>Caution her not to get cocky and to take this as seriously as a normal battle>Swap her item quickly before the match starts>Maybe someone else should battle instead>Remind her again, so it sticks, that there are more important things than winning and losing>Something else
>>3431575>Something elseLet her know that this is one of the best kinds of battles to show off in, so if she has any special flourishes or ideas of her own, to let you know, so that we can try and make sure they happen in the match.
>>3431575this right here >>3431593
Man, where'd everyone go? Is the homestuck fever killing them off?
“Remember Bella, this contest is style over everything. It’s the best time to show off. If you have any flourishes or ideas you want to use, let me know and we can work together to try to make sure they happen in the match.”Even under the heavy sunlight, she seems to glow. Gardevoir bumps into your back trying to get a closer look after you think that, and seems disappointed it’s not a literal glow. You scratch your head and put your focus back on Bella.Belladonna bounces on her feet a little. It’s a strange combination of her natural, light grace, and the way Laki moves her heavier, -but not fat,- body when she’s going to lift or leverage her muscles.“Any suggestions to start with?”She instantly changes her bounce to a light-footed grace. She wants to dance. No wait. She wants to avoid, deflect, and dance around her opponent. At least, to start with.“Begin!” The sudden announcement catches you both off guard.“Alright, Exeggutor! Let’s get stylin’! Charge and Egg Bomb!”The huge pokemon starts stomping forward, aiming it’s Egg Bomb. It seems to have a big wind up time. It’ll still arrive long before Exeggutor travels the distance. He’s heavy, creating big loud thumps as he runs, but he's also slow.>Slice the egg to pieces with Razor Leaf>Interrupt the attack with a surgical Pin Missile>Cut the egg when it arrives>Use Laser Focus>Take advantage of the light with Growth>Run between his legs to avoid the attack>Something else

“Bella! Get under it!”As the huge pokemon makes a mighty throw of the egg, you start to worry. It looks like a very, very heavy version of that attack. You’ve never actually seen it done, but you just assume that heft would be a more well known part of the attack if it were how it worked all the time.Bella, rather than try to dodge it or run away, goes forward instead. Just like you instructed. It’s such a counter intuitive action for this much smaller pokemon to run under the huge stomping feet of that particularly heavy and strong colossus. And that’s why it works. It doesn’t just work though, it looks really cool. Her momentum has her glide along the smooth stone under Exeggutor, ready to counter. All while the egg lands where she was before she closed the distance with a heavy impact.The judges look impressed. Belladonna’s bar on the digital display has her starting with less points, but you think this good start can make up for that and then some if used right.>Poison Jab directly up>Great!

“Petal Dance into a Poison Jab!” You command. “A twirling uppercut!”Belladonna spins, using her momentum from her run to gain extra twirling speed. The sudden change in direction with her upward leap still manages to keep that energy. She becomes a spinning blur, driving upwards with a sharp, pointy tip. The power and grace of Petal Dance, combined with the focused point from the Poison Jab, create a focused, penetrating attack that almost lifts Exeggutor off the ground.The points fly off of Exeggutor’s point bar at the judges table. There’s an electric energy coming from them and now a few more people watching.Bella’s twirl begins to slow and fade as she needs to take a moment to focus another Petal Dance.But that’s when the Stomp comes crashing down.Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! The huge Grass Dragon leverages it’s size and weight, ignoring grace and style and going for savagery instead.But maybe that’s because Bella took so much out of it. Her attack was enough to really drain it’s energy along with it’s points. The stomping hurts, but you suspect it could be a lot worse.The confusion that follows Petal Dance doesn’t seem to be there since the stomps seem to have interrupted it. Her moment looks like it was lost, though. Points chip off of her bar, but her health is running lower.>Bella!

Well, there’s still the chance Exeggutor is using Synthesis or something too, so we may not be out.If we are, oh well, can’t win ‘em all.
The mad stomps keep slamming down on your poor Belladonna.“Get out of there, Belladonna!”While she doesn’t need your instructions to tell her what to do here, she does seem to have needed your urging for the extra inspiration. She pushes to escape. She begins crawling, struggling to escape, but slips on some rocks before she can get out. This is followed by more stomping. She lets out a hurtful squeak that pinches your heart.“Alright, let’s get our grace about us, Exeggutor. This is about style and looks. Be sporting.”The large opponent backs away, smugly content with it’s show of power. The judges don’t seem overly impressed with it at first. It gives a little bit of a moonwalk dance as it scoots back, which does help it’s showing a bit. Enough that it’s taken the lead for now.“Quick! Use Synthesis!”Belladonna pushes herself up, looking pretty worn and hurt. She tries to drink up the sun, but, alarmingly, the long shadow cast by her opponent gets in her way. She weaves a little to the left and to the right, and Exeggutor mockingly moves it’s long neck to ensure it blocks her access to precious sun rays.Belladonna gives up trying. Her shoulders slink and she looks back to the bench. Laki is still out with Keira. Her sunken, tired eyes look back to you. She looks so heartbroken and demoralized.You expected fury or anger. Rage or desperation or even a renewed determination to show off. This though, is almost too much to bear.Exeggutor struts a little. Just enough to show it’s complete control of the situation, but not enough to risk Belladonna getting herself back into the sunlight easily. At least there’s the Black Sludge to help her recover a little.You’ve got to think! This is a contest battle, not a regular battle. How can you use that to help Belladonna?

You hadn’t realized how many people had begun watching until now, when they start to lose interest. Some people even begin to walk away.Belladonna doesn’t notice either. She just sniffs in the cold, malevolent shade.“Belladonna! I believe in you!” You shout to your sweet little egg of a pokemon. “You don’t need to get out of it’s shadow. You can make your own sunshine so everyone can see you. Everyone wants to see you shine, so get some light on yourself! Sunny Day!”“You can do it, Bella!” Hana yells.“Try your best!” Abigail adds.She sniffs, looking back at you. The renewed hope that grows on her face warms you inside. It’s a hot day, but it’s not at all an uncomfortable warmth.Belladonna nods, pushing her sniffles back and focusing on the task at hand. She’s going to do her best to shine, because you believe she can.“SHINE!” Gardevoir encourages with glowing eyes. She doesn’t do anything beyond that, to your relief. Your opponent though, doesn’t seem as inspired. “Hypnosis, Exeggutor. Put her down with dignity.”The flare of sunlight that Belladonna creates not to far from herself completely disrupts her opponent’s vision, throwing off the Hypnosis. She’s brightly lit, drawing everyone’s attention and the sympathy of the crowd. Exeggutor’s points drop to critically low levels.Belladonna’s still hurt, but time and Black Sludge help her a little with that. Her spirit though, has completely bounced back and through the roof.Exeggutor is a little off balance from this.>Synthesis!

“That’s the way, Belladonna! Now, Laser Focus and Pin Missile!”She makes a cute, determined noise and aims her arm like a gun. You cheer for her. Hana and Abigail cheer for her. Even Gobble and the others are making noise for Belladonna. This is her moment. The laser focuses in on Exeggutor. Right between the eyes of the front facing egg.Bella looks around before shooting. Instead of capitalizing on her moment and focusing on a showy attack, she looks self-conscious and concerned about making sure she has everyone’s attention. This burns a lot of time, and a lot of the cool factor from her attack.A rapid flurry of shots from Bella’s pointed arm make her reel back from the force and stumble onto her bottom, as if she used that move for the first time. A small cloud of sharp pin missiles fly off at the huge, towering collection of heads, still befuddled by her sudden turnabout and morale boost.Tink tink tink. The Pin Missiles deflect off of a barrier that protected it! Exeggcute’s other faces grin. Apparently that had time to get their wits about them.“Nice protect!” Loke yells as you and Belladonna try to process this. You thought for sure that you had this. All you needed was to just do one more solid move. It didn’t even have to be damaging. “Now follow up with Confusion! We’ll go from an Invisible barrier to invisible telekinetic attack! Yeah!”The judges immediately drop Belladonna’s points. Exeggcute successfully took all the hype she had built and reversed it on her. It’s frustrating the way judges work sometimes. They seem to wait to see how an exchange plays out before subtracting points.Panic again sets in. Black Sludge works it’s magic, but it’s not health she has to worry about right now. It’s style points. And Belladonna is a sliver away from running out of points.>Dodge!>Rush with a Poison Sting!>Attract! Stop it in it’s tracks!>Try Extrasensory.

They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as circumstances warrant.Combat mechanics involve three rolls of 1d100, taking the best, and using the base accuracy and crit ranges of the the PTU system, roughly, but the 'turn order' will be more like the anime, where sometimes you can do a few moves in a row or be hit by a combo of moves yourself, all depending on circumstances. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves and also may leave you open to an interrupt, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Pokemon and trainers are unique, and may have certain specializations, skills, or other things that the video-game mechanics might not allow. Some examples: That kung fu Bellsprout in the anime, that crystal Onix, or a Roggenrolla that can fly. Herb's perception skills, pokemon knowledge, context clues in general, and other things will hopefully come into play to avoid completely unfair, unforeseeable bullshit, but expect more bullshit from more advanced trainers.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roserade)Dice (Feraligatr)Sorbet (Vulpix)Ghost Pepper (Rotom)Location: Eelilee Festival grounds
>>3440831Sadly, my break’s over soon.When can we get the moves bin update, Gobble?
>>3440858[Tomorrow I'll have some time. I'll use the notes from last time and audit everything else I can find.]
>>3436598She’s up first.
“Belladonna! Quick! Stun Spore into the air above and around you. Then Sunny Day!”“Hypnosis! Put that little baby Pokemon to sleep!” Your opponent shouts.Large, spinning spirals of purple energy appear in front of Exeggutor’s eyes. But it’s much slower than your Belladonna.She fires off two concussive blasts of powder out of her flowers in an instant, like they were primed and ready to pop at any second. The cloud of spores float around her and then, gradually but quickly, begin to light up and sparkle.“Don’t get distracted! Hypnosis! Push it hard! HARD!” Loke shouts, choosing to double down instead of change tactics. You hope that works in your favor.Belladonna stumbles a little, looking tired. She yawns.“Just a little longer, Belladonna!” You push, feeling a huge tension in your muscles.She makes a cute, determined noise. She’s trying her best.“Attract!” You yell as the hypnotic eyes bear into her.Belladonna shakes off any distractions and spins. Only for a second, though. She uses the quick twirl under the sparkling, shining Stun Spore to create enough wind to give it a swirl around her. Then she stops suddenly and juts out her hips, blowing a kiss and following with a wink.Exeggutor loses it’s concentration, blinking and blushing, then looking away shyly. It’s remaining points fall away.“Victory goes to the Roserade and trainer!” A judge declares.You and your pokemon run up to Belladonna, who yawns and might even have fallen over if you didn’t pick her up right away.“You did great!” You tell her.She gives an exhausted, but smug smile back.Loke comes up and bows. “It was a good battle.” You bow back, and she continues. “She’s a lot tougher than she looks.”Her Exeggutor looks over at Belladonna, then shyly looks away again. It’s extremely conspicuous with that massively long neck. Belladonna gives him a wink you aren't sure you can approve when he peaks back, and he turns away again only for a different egg-head to be forced to look in her direction anyway.>Well, she has a tough mom>Exeggutor was tough too. Good battle>That stomping was pretty brutal for a contest battle>Ask why she didn’t use Slugma>Bella stop that!>Something else
>>3440931>>Exeggutor was tough too. Good battle>She has to be tough, her pride would allow her no less.
>>3440931>Well, she has a tough mom>Exeggutor was tough too. Good battle>Ask why she didn’t use SlugmaLoke seems alright, I don't mind having a conversation if we have time.
>>3440931>Well, she has a tough mom>Exeggutor was tough too. Good battle>Ask why she didn’t use Slugma
“Exeggutor was tough too! That was a good battle.” You compliment back. Looks like you’ll have at least a moment or two while a few other matches around have yet to wrap up. You notice that the other battles have pokemon barely attack each other outright, and spend more time setting up move combos and flourishes. The more advanced battlers make it into elaborate dances.“Really? Thanks!” She looks back at him for a second, then back to you. “I think I shouldn’t have tried Hypnosis. I should have used his strength of body instead of strength of personality. Not that I’m trying to trash talk him or anything...I just, well, he’s easy to intimidate, or...fall for other things. Anyway, I’m getting off track. Really, that little cutie is tough!”“Well, she has a tough mom.” You say, holding Belladonna like a baby.“Oh, you’re a breeder! That’s cool! I’ve always wanted to get into breeding myself.”It’s about then that Hana and Abigail arrive behind you. Hana’s ears look perked. “Slow down. We just got Laki to agree to Keira.” She whispers to you. You try to make sense of that while the girls introduce themselves.“Hey, Loke.” You jump back in. “Why didn’t you use Slugma?”“I thought about it, Slugma doesn’t need the experience like Exeggutor does. He’s my toughest, but only in battle. Not in personality. I was hoping contest battles would help him. I know he acts smug sometimes, but he can only dish it out and can’t take it at all. Pokemon with Intimidate, or moves like Attract really get to him more than I’ve seen for other pokemon.”“Happens all the time.” Abigail says. “People, pokemon. The more squishy they are inside, the tougher they act outside.”Loke doesn’t look offended. She does keep looking over to Gardevoir though, and subtly playing with a pokeball. Gardevoir is wandering close to the Stun Spore cloud with the Sunlight all around it. She’s not going into the cloud, but she’s hanging closely to it.>Maybe you can help her with that after the tournament>Ask for any contest advice she has before your next battle>Ask Hana what she meant before. Loudly and openly>Pull Gardevoir back from the spores>Make it clear Gardevoir isn’t to be caught>Something else
>>3441006>Make it clear Gardevoir isn’t to be caughtMaybe just a warning "Don't">Pinch the Hana booty, shes too much.
>>3441015+1 we are helping her work through some issues. It’d also be kind of crazy to try to catch a powerful and potentially volatile Pokémon in a crowded area like this.
You catch Loke’s eyes when she looks back to you, and offer a simple and direct caution. “Don’t.”She’s taken aback for a second, and frankly you’re a little surprised at how direct you’re being too. You guess you really are getting more manly.Jeez the silence is lasting too long. You hope she isn’t up-“Alright. I get there’s something going on here. I’ll respect...whatever that is.” She says respectfully and cautiously. She looks to Abigail for a way to change the subject. “So are you guys siblings?”“What? Ew no!” Abigail pushes you into Hana. She tries to, anyway. You’re not a big guy, but she’s much too weak to make you go anyway even if you don’t actively resist. Maybe you’re just used to Hana and Laki being so strong.“Oh, sorry. Lovers?”“OHMYARCEUS!” Abigail throws up her hands and walks away.Loke looks worried.“Don’t worry about her.” Hana assures Loke. “I’m uh, his...one of his...lovers.” She manages to get out. Feeling a bit revved up, you decide to emphasize that with a sly pinch to Hana’s bottom. She jumps a little and settles close against your side.“Oh. Cool.” Loke blinks. She’s never sounded disapproving, but she does look more confused from one moment to the next.The other battles seem to be mostly ended. You’ll have to get ready for your next one soon. You’ll have maybe 10 minutes if you’re lucky.Hana slides her metal hand into your back pocket.>Say bye and get to preparing for your next battle>Go somewhere private with Hana quickly>Discuss Gardevoir’s issues. Maybe Loke can help>Exchange pokedex numbers>Something else
>>3441006>>3441015Supporting but also>Maybe you can help her with that after the tournamentJust to get some experience with more aura sifting, especially with a stranger as alien as slugma.
>>3441077>>Exchange pokedex numbers>Go somewhere private with Hana quicklyNot just for sexy lewd psuedo public fun but also for elaboration on LAKI AGREEING TO IT HOLY CRAP WHAT YESSSSSSSSSSSSS
>>3441077>>Exchange pokedex numbers
>>3441077>Exchange pokedex numbers>Go somewhere private with Hana quicklyShould get the details about that bomb Hana just dropped.
“Hey, um, Hana and I have to do something really quick.” -Hana pinches you back and you manage not to jump- “But can we exchange pokedex numbers?”“Yeah. Okay. You guys seem...interesting.” She grabs her pokedex, and you both give each other numbers. She sends a quick message to make sure it goes through. “Well, I feel good getting as far as I did against you. Good luck. Don’t smurf the next team too hard.”“She’s a little bitter.” Hana says as you both walk away to a mostly secluded spot behind some tents. “Anyway, are you thinking what I’m thinking?” She snuggles into you and starts to undo your belt.“I think I am. This belt was a mistake.” You help her as she takes it off of you, and grab the other one from your bag quickly. “Good eye.”Hana makes some sort of strange, frustrated, barely audible noise.“So...what did you say before about Hana and Keira?”Her smile returns with a vengeance! “Okay, don’t take that as a for sure thing, but I mean, come on! They’re out bonding right now and I’ve been texting them both -to neither’s knowledge-, and we’re totally like right there. Laki just needs a little more push.”“What kind of push?”“I don’t know! I’m trying my best!” Hana uncharacteristically snaps at you. “Sorry! Sorry. It’s just been a few days, hand or otherwise, and I’m a little on edge.” She puts a finger to her lip in a quick thinking motion. “Maybe I have some sort of addiction. Oh well. Doesn’t matter. The thing to focus on here is that we are thiiiiis close.”You’ll have to get back quickly. You don’t have much time.>Hana’s....very into this idea. Is she doing this for the right reasons?>Well, you hope it works out but you don’t want to push Laki into anything>Great news! Thanks for telling me>Let’s discuss a plan to get Laki over that last hump after this match>Something else
>>3441168>>Hana’s....very into this idea. Is she doing this for the right reasons?>Give hana some relief so she thinks with her big head.
>>3441168>Well, you hope it works out but you don’t want to push Laki into anything>Something else"I really think it would help if you explained to her the reasons why you'd like to invite Keira. I mean, I've already explained my reasons to her, but you're just as important to this relationship as Laki or I, and I feel like she'd really appreciate your input."
>>3441168>Well, you hope it works out but you don’t want to push Laki into anything>Something elseGive Hana some relief, possibly a quicky, maybe? So, she can be in a more clear mindset.
>>3441168>>3441184>>3441185Supporting as well
>>3441168>Let’s give them their space. Let them bond without us distracting them.>Sneak off and give her some attention of that sort.I wonder if we can consume some of Hana’s libido for energy, via aura.
>It doesn’t matter if I have an addiction.I would argue it does and maybe we should talk about that?
>>3441168>Something elseTake a hint, just this once, that Hana needs the back of her throat scratched.
“Hana. Can I ask you something?”She looks worried. “Yeah, of course. Everything but my age. Heh. Kidding. You know my age. And I’m not some old lady or anything. It’s just funny because...I’ll shut up. Please ask now.”“You seem really eager about Keira. Are you sure you’re doing this for her sake?”Her strong robotic arm grabs you and pulls you closer. “We’ve been stuck in limbo about this forever. Will we, won’t we? It’s torture. Torture! I...just want to see her destroyed! I want to vibrate her into screaming fit! I want to bend her over while you piston her into an addicted, submissive love slave! I want to see her and Laki go at it! I want to poetically and romantically give her la petite mort and see those cute, gigantic dinner plate eyes tear up in orgasmic happiness!” She breathes, taking a moment to gather herself. Slowly, she lets you down. She hadn’t even realized she’d picked you up. “Sorry.” She brushes you off. “Anyway, I was saying, yes, I’m not going to lie and say I don’t want that. But I really think it’s in her best interest. She’s lost in her new position. Her heart’s in the right place, but this is a complete change from everything she’s been working on her entire life. People are going to be looking to her for questions about making babies, and sex is a biiiiiiig subject. She had the good judgement and humility to ask for help. And I want to help her.” She fights a renewed, eager smile that wants back on her face against her will. “I just think it can be rewarding to help.” She looks back to you. “And I love how awesome and loyal and thoughtful you are and how you’re not just some houndoom with a bone about it. But I sort of want you to be a little bit like that right now too.” She pushes into you again, lightly kissing your neck.“Well, I do want it to work out. But I don’t want to push Laki into anything.”Her metal foot slams down on a rock and turns it into dust. She looks embarrassed. “S-sorry. Don’t be scared. I’m not mad. Just...-frustrated-...” She sighs. “Look. Laki isn’t hesitating because she’s against other girls or dislikes Keira. She’s just prideful. Even if Keira isn’t a full fledged member, it’s still an intimate and vulnerable position to be involved in making love with another person. Sometimes we need each other to break down our walls.” Her voice sounds strained, but it softens towards the end.(continued)
>>3441268You take her hand and get close again. Her other hand though, directs it’s fingers to inside your belt line. “Wow. Hana. That’s really insight-”“Final call for the Third Round! Final call!” A voice shouts out loudly from around the way of your semi-secluded spot.Hana frustratingly screams into your chest. It’s a load festival and a secluded spot though, and nobody hears but you. “Go.” She mumbles into you, defeated.>Thanks! Your pokemon are waiting. We’ll talk later>Nuts the contest. Give Hana attention now>Try to use your aura powers to take care of her with a quick touch>You had one more very quick thing you wanted to mention before you run off (write-in)>Something else
>>3441277>Give Hana a kiss before going>Thanks! Your pokemon are waiting. We’ll talk later
>>3441277>>Try to use your aura powers to take care of her with a quick touch>Thanks! Your pokemon are waiting. We’ll talk laterThis has much potential for being innnnteresting.
>>3441277>Try to use your aura powers to take care of her with a quick touch>Thanks! Your pokemon are waiting. We’ll talk later"This is but a taste of my mighty power! Mwhahaha!" Not really though, Herb probably wouldn't pull off that kind of joke, but maybe it'll be funnier that way.
>>3441277>Give Hana a kiss before going>Thanks! Your pokemon are waiting. We’ll talk later>Something else"Love you!"
>>3441277>Try to use your aura powers to take care of her with a quick touch

>>344134770 is pretty good. I don't think it's too far outside the scope of what Herb can do with aura stuff.
“Thanks. We’ll talk later.” You say, leaving. You stop and turn back. “Wait. Maybe we can do something really quick.”“Don’t tease.” She warns.You lean in, focusing on her aura and pinpointing the right energies. Hana willingly opens up to you, letting you in. You kiss her, and cup her hand face. Then you do what you can to help bring her over the edge.Her metal legs lock, and she leans against the wall. It’s tragically not enough. She’s left even more frustrated and close. If only you had a more comfortable setting, and relaxed her, and weren’t so pressed for time. This is still beyond your skill level to do on the fly.“I thought it woul-”“Go before I don’t give you a choice.” Her voice weakly manages. The hair covering her face as she holds herself up and looks down at the ground reminds you of a horror movie. You're sure she could name it, but you decide not to ask and instead take her advice.You rush back, waving to the judges table to make sure they see you. One of them gives you a nod and waves to you to get into position. You run the same way you would if you were crossing and a car was waiting for you.Belladonna is sitting there, waiting. Sorbet looks up and puffs a little, looking ready, but also self-conscious. Dice looks up and cocks his head, then his tongue falls out of his mouth and he doesn’t seem to even notice. Gobble comes forward and looks for approval for keeping everyone together while you were gone. Mace is sitting perfectly still while Pepper buzzes around his head trying to get any sort of reaction out of him. He slow though, still worn from his battle.“Good job, Gobble.” You pat him on the head.“Do you have a ready pokemon?” A judge asks.You look at your team. Belladonna steps forward. She looks tired, but healed up. She must have been really soaking up that sun! But she stepped up at the same time as Sorbet. Sorbet, not as eager as Belladonna, backs away a step.Your opponent already has a Probopass out. Man, their noses are even bigger in real life!>You’re up, Sorbet>If there are no objections, then sure, Bella, let’s go again>Dice, lets go>Mace, how about it?>Gobble, let’s get stylin’>Pepper, how about another go?>Gardevoir, would you feel up for it?>Something else
>>3441369>>You’re up, Sorbet
>>3441369>You’re up, SorbetC'mon Bella, gotta give everyone else a turn!
>>3441369>You’re up, Sorbet
>>3441369>You’re up, Sorbet!
>>3441369>You’re up, SorbetHave an ice day.
“You’re up Sorbet!” You announce. She looks up, unsure, but she quickly shakes that off and runs forward. Bella pouts, but not loudly, and when Sorbet gets into position she gives what looks and sounds like a cheer of encouragement. Begrudgingly.“Young man, are you ready?” The judge asks, looking a bit annoyed. You hope they weren’t waiting too long.“Yes!” You keep an eye on Sorbet to make sure she’s aware you’re starting right away. She looks nervous, but she’s aware. The judges and a few people watching from the sidelines all seem pretty impressed with what a beautiful pokemon she is. This is her home island, and you guess ice Vulpixes are well regarded here.“BEGIN!”Your opponent is a hefty, scruffy looking man, somewhere in his late 20s or early 30s. It’s hard to tell with that beard.“Probopass! Block!” He shouts.Sorbet puffs a little, not sure what to do.>Hail. Create a snowstorm where Sorbet has all the advantages>Ice Shard for a first strike. Take the momentum!>Extrasensory to disrupt and discombobulate Probopass>Feint Attack. A direct attack for damage>Protect herself with Mist>Fire a beautiful Aurora Beam>Something else

[That's it for me today. We'll be picking up on Friday night. I'll be working on the moves pastebin as well as the Polu pastebin on Wednesday, but no promises on getting too much done. Thanks for coming!]

>>3441427>>Protect herself with Mist>>3441433Thank for running, Gobble! I feel really bad for edging Hana so hard, but boy was it funny.
>>3441369>and cup her hand faceIs that her palm? or have we just not fully grasped how disfigured Hanas head is?This turn of events kind of makes me want for us to go into denial play with her. a couple more "oops, gotta run's" and she's going to strait up rape us.>>3441433always a fun time Gobble
Should we get Gardevoir, like, a T-shirt so people aren’t always itching to catch her? Or, like, a collar? Would that just be a necklace?
>>3441622>a collarHana no
How many rounds is this tourney, anyways? I’m enjoying it, but I want to go spoil Hana ASAP.
>>34416884-5 total, if you win.
>>3443615(Nice pic!)Knowing Hana’s luck, it’ll be 5.You know, I myself have spent some time wondering if I had a sex/porn addiction. When I looked at how often I was jerkin it, (16-ish times a week) and compared to what other people said, I got concerned. It’s not like a chemical dependency where there’s a binary, as with a good addiction, quitting cold turkey isn’t really well-adjusted either. It’s harder to discern a strong, but ultimately healthy libido, from an addiction.I think the test you’re supposed to use is whether it interferes with your normal life, like you cancel plans for it and stuff. Since then, I’ve become less busy and less horny, so I never really ended up seaking any sort of outside help or anything. It has stayed a small problem, but I can’t remember ever getting like Hana seems to have here.I think it’s worth bringing up with her, if our sex drive isn’t gonna keep up with hers. Certainly not hers plus Laki’s. We don’t want to ignore her suffering.Though I don’t think she’ll be in much of a condition to talk about it until we’ve given her her fix.
>>3443666>I feel its more like she's just a very kinky girl who's been stuck on the road for a couple days and not everyone's super comfortable with the idea of watching Herb and Hana fuk.despite the fact that Abigail more than definitely had some fun watching despite her refusal to admit it. Also I can only imagine Keira would be all for the fun as well. I think the momentary abstinence is because everyone's having some fun being with Valerie and are busy enjoying the celebrations.
>>3443693If that's the case, I'd still like to talk to her about how to manage her energies during future dry spells.After Laki expressed how she felt Herb was neglecting her in bed back at the last gym, and now with this, I just don't see Herb not looking at how to better match sexual appetites with his girls.
A present for the guy who keeps announcing he wants to fug Keira:
