This is going to be 1 or 2 threads. I tried doing something similar to this on April Fools, but got busy with school.

Here's the April Fools version: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3397537/

This quest is going to be somewhat similar, but with Pokemon. I got no idea what will happen. I like write-ins, and try to have fun with it. Let's try to have fun.
ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

Let's pick our character for this adventure will you start as "Chad" or "Virgil". After that we choose a pokemon to start with.

>Chad- Your average Chad in a Pokémon Quest, works out constantly cares about his image, does amazing things with ease. Has a brother named Virgil who is a total geek, but is apart of the senpai. Believes in raw power, squats, SUPREME clothing, and chad Pokémon.

>Virgil- Your average Pokémon nerd, doesn’t like kantooooo Pokémon, spends his entire Friday on /VP/ /Phox Friday Threads/, Sundays on /PADT/ believes in strategy over brawn, wants a gf. Doesn’t get out much. Probably (you). Wishes his brother will teach him how to do the gym.

Let's pick a pokemon to start of with. Pick one from the list or write-in your own(No Legendaries, psuedo's, or Wailords).

>Abra(M)

You were gaming online one day, calling someone a low-ladder Showdown-scrub, for using “Unga-bunga” Galarian-Darmanitain. Next thing you know you have an Abra punching you in the face for being bad at playing top tiers. Eventually you became close friends, he became your “Pokémon”. Abra can talk to you or others telepathically, and teleport you around (2 max including himself). Likes to eat nacho cheese. Sucks battling to only knowing Teleport & Power-Up Punch.

>Umbreon(M) Shiny

Purchased in an illegal online auction after stealing funds from Chad’s checking account. When the Pokémon came through the mail, there were signs of physical abuse, and was scared of Virgil at first, but soon warmed up to him. Virgil feels safer at night knowing the light blue glow of Umbreon will keep him safe, as well as his battle prowess. Seems stronger than the Pokémon lets on. Hates sunlight, if battling in the sun, will refuse to battle unless promised something in return. Won’t fight if he thinks his opponent isn’t worth his time. Likes to eat hamburgers & very night walks.

>Yamper(M)

Your family dog. Likes everything and everyone. Very affectionate, doesn’t like ghost types. Likes treats & belly rubs. Battling prowess is questionable in certain situations.

In this world, there are many mysterious creatures known as Pokemon. They come in many shapes and sizes and hold immense power. Some use them as common house pets, others to compete in fancy contests, others try to harness that power and fight amongst others. Your name is Virgil Tankerson you just turned 16 last week and currently living with both your parents and your older brother Chad. You have a pet Yamper named Pantheon. Your brother thought it was a name for a tough guard dog, when they adopted it from the PokeShelter. Though all the pup does is lick whoever comes to the door and bark for attention.

It’s a Tuesday night and your sitting in your room. Your lewd poster of the new poison Galarian Gym leader Klara is slowly peeling off your wall. The current time on your Pikachu clock states 11:50 PM. It’s a school night and you should probably be getting some sleep. Though Chad is playing loud music in the room next door, it doesn’t seem he will be going to sleep anytime soon. Looking over to your nightstand you see your Umbreon beginning to stretch her legs. The rings on her body flicker for a moment soon glowing a bright blue. You’ve only had her for about two weeks now, after purchasing her of a sketchy website. When she came in the mail there were visible bruises on her body. Thankfully your mother is a certified Ms. Joy, and you picked up a thing or two of how to treat a pokemon. You haven't told your family yet that you have a Pokemon.

What do you do? It is a school night.

You swivel around in your rolling chair. “Lumi come here girl,” you beckon the Umbreon. She looks over to you, and slowly strides over. Looking up from her position, her yellow eyes look at you expectedly. Opening a drawer you pull out a long string, with the fluffy Clefairy over at the end. Hanging the Clefairy string over her you watch as she playfully strike the ball, you pull it back from her and watch as she jumps upwards opening her mouth in an attempt to bite the fluffy end.

*Ding~!

>[Received 1 text Message]

Reaching over you grab your Pokétch and open a text from your buddy Sebastian.

>Bro? Where are you? My parents are out of town and I’m throwing a party! We got music, drugs, booze, and food. Everybody is here. Bring Chad, we need some more life at this party. Pokemon are only allowed outside btw.

Looking over on the carpet floor you see Lumi with the end of the string in her mouth, moving it around waiting for you to grab it again. Grabbing your phone, you send Sebastian back a text.

>“It’s a school night, I shouldn’t stay up too late. We have a test tomorrow, don’t we?”

“Well, I have gone over the study guide twice and finished all the recommended readings. If I’m in the area I’ll drop by. I’ll let Chad know though, he’s probably deadlifting in his room right now with his Pyukumuku or whatever other Pokemon he has.”

After a few seconds of sending the text, you receive a quick response from Sebastian.

“Nerd. See you in class.”

You open a text message log with Chad.

“Hey, there is a party going on at SupremeClout, 18420 street. Supposedly it's big.”

“I’m taking Pantheon,” Chad quickly responds.

The music stops in the room next to you, as you hear Chad’s door swing open.

“Pantheon! Come here, boy!” Chad yells, most likely disturbing your parents from whatever they were doing in their room. Most likely sex.

*Knock* *Knock*

“Virgil, are you coming or not?” Chad asks from behind the door.

You point towards under your bed, telling Lumi to hide as you open the door. Chad is standing there with his arms around Pantheon. His Pyukumu that you're not sure the name of is doing one-handed push-ups on Chad’s other arm.

“No, I think I might just stop by the Pokemart and go to sleep. I got a test tomorrow,” you respond.

“Your loss nerd,” Chad says as he jumps down the stairs, and out of the garage door. His car starts up and he drives off without a second thought. Lumi comes back from under the bed.

You lean over to Lumi giving her a loving scratch behind the ears “Where do you think we should go?”

Before you head out to wherever you may go. You make sure to grab your Pokewatch, wallet, and Lumi’s Luxury ball. It’s rather cold outside currently so you make sure to grab the SUPREME jacket that Chad gave you for your birthday. Hopefully, some lady will notice you and mistake you for Chad.

Currently you have:
>$1000 PokeDollars
>Pokewatch(Think of it like a smartphone)
>SUPREME Jacket

Lumi paws at the door as she notices you grab your things, she is excited to be going outside. As you walk outside of your house you remember that your mom is actually on duty at the PokeCenter. So whoever your father is with, is someone else or he is watching something. Shrugging your shoulders you walk into the cold night air. Lumi is walking ahead of you, choosing to be the leader on this nightly stroll. Her glowing rings illuminate your surroundings, as you walk down the dark sidewalk. As the two of you walk over a bridge, you peer over the edge seeing a family of Lanturn’s and Chinchou pass by. In the cold silence, Lumi stops walking, her ears twitch as she looks over to a nearby forest.

I know a battle hook when I see it, but we don't have an extra pokeball and getting Lumi injured would risk discovery which is a whole can of worms we don't want to deal with right now. Let's see if she likes pastrami.

“Let’s hit the Pokemart. I’ll buy you something to eat.” Whatever Lumi was staring at is no longer of interest to her as she hears about food and begins to dash in the direction of the Pokemart. You pick up the pace, but soon quickly grow tired.

“Lumi s-slow down.” You say as you come to a slow walk. Lumi looks behind you and sighs before walking back to you.

Eventually, the two of you reach the Pokemart.
>[LateNight PokeFoodMart]
>[Come get your Grub and your Pokegoods]
>[Pokemon are allowed inside]

As you enter the store the clerk with unkept hair greets you with a deadpan expression, “Welcome. Don’t steal anything, I’m watching the cameras.” You nod your head as you enter one of the sections in the store. There are several Pokémon related products as well as some convenience food. There is a small sitting area within the store, with a microwave to heat up food. This Pokemart is a little bit more expensive than others, though they are more known for their late-night food sales.

You walk over with Lumi to the food section of the Pokemart and pick out two “Thicc Emboar Hamburgers” known for there juicy tastes, and to build fat into people or Pokemon quickly.” Looking over to Lumi she is toying around with an empty Pokeball that fell of one of the shelves.

“I guess we can get one of these as well,” you say picking the spherical ball of the floor. Walking over to the front of the store you notice that there is a different cashier than when you entered. He is holding a blunt in his hand and puffs out smoke as you step up. “Hey there little dude, nice jacket. For looking totally rad I'll throw in the ball for free”

“Thank you,” you say as you place your items on the desk glad that Chad's gift got you a good deal.

“That’ll be $140,” the cashier says as he takes another hit of his blunt. You hand the cashier the money and walk towards the sitting area in the Pokemart. After warming up the Thicc Emboar Hamburgers, you sit down with Lumi. Her mouth is agape, as you unravel her burger for her. She dives into the burger using her paw to hold the meat down as she bites off small chunks. There is a look of satisfaction on her face, as she swallows her food. There is a television, replaying the local news of events that happened today or that may be happening. There is also an unread message on your phone from Sebastian & Chad.

You do the same as Lumi and bite into the juicy Emboar burger. The nearby television shifts to a local news report happening in your town.

>[“Many trainers and PokeEnthusits visit XXX City as there have been sightings of the mythical Pokemon Manaphy in the nearby waters.”]

>[“A large local event will be announced in schools across the city tomorrow.”]

>[“Three people were nearly killed in a house party near SupremeClout street, but were saved thanks to a handsome young man's Pyukumuku and Yamper. More will be covered tomorrow at 6 as we get the details for this amazing story.”]

Lumi walks over to you and takes a bite off your hamburger while you are distracted watching the television.

“H-hey that’s mine! Eat your own,” you yell. Lumi looks over to her already eaten food, and licks you on the cheek. “Um-breon.”

Not sure what she said, you finish hurry and finish eating your hamburger before she can take another bite. “I know these are good, but eating too many of these will make you fat,” you say as you pet Lumi along her back. “Umbreon”, Lumi saying her name again. You know that some people that have been around their Pokemon for a long time have a gist of what they are saying. Most likely due to a deep friendship of being around another. Though some psychic types can speak a human language and act as a translator for money.

You open up your Pokewatch, and read the unread message from Chad. It’s a video of Pantheon dancing in front of a large group of women. They are cheering the pup on. “Go Pantheon! Go Pantheon! It’s your PokeBirthday! Go Chad! Go Chad!”

Sebastian’s message says “You should have been here! It was epic! There were some goons who were crashed the party and threatened to take some of the girls, but Chad saved them in an epic double battle with that Yamper and overly strong Pyukumuku. Why can’t you be more like your brother?”

Lumi comes closer to you and tilts her head to the side, “Um-”

Clicking your tongue you respond to the text, “Rude, I’ll see you in class in the morning.” “It’s getting very late now, let’s go home,” you grab the two burger wrappers and crumbling them into a ball, and tossing it into the nearby trash. Before leaving the Pokemart you purchase a small cake of 3 for $20. The woman that was originally there when you came in is at the counter. “Where did the other guy go?” you ask. The woman looks at her cameras behind the counter, “What other guy? I been the only one here all night.” Before you can respond Lumi is nudging your leg to leave Pokemart.

Shrugging your shoulders you leave the Pokemart, walking by Lumi’s side in the direction of your house. The walk there is uneventful at most, the occasional HootHoot, or Murkrow sitting on a lamppost. You can see your mother through a window working at the front desk of a Pokemon center, she seems to be treating some girl’s Vivillion. Soon you reach your house, it doesn’t seem that Chad is back from the party meaning you could probably catch some Z’s. Your father doesn’t seem to be making anymore, noise. Heading back into your room you notice that your Klara poster has fallen off and is now laying on the floor. You take the small cakes out of your pocket and hand them one of them to Lumi. “Don’t eat them all in one night,” Lumi nods and begins eating into the small treat. While Lumi is distracted eating her treat you quickly change into more comfortable sleeping clothing and lay in bed.

As you get into a comfortable sleeping position you know that something is missing…Lumi. “Lumi come overhear”, you say beckoning the Umbreon over to you. She comes over to you jumping on the bed. There are some crumbs of chocolate on her face from the small cake. Lumi licks your cheek as she snuggles up close to your chest. Your body feels warmer as you cuddle her close. Things seem better after Lumi came into your life, though that may just be because you feel that you have a sense of responsibility to feed and care for something else. Eventually, these thoughts drift away as you start imagining Mareep jumping over a fence, while slowly petting Lumi.

> 1…Mareep. 2…Mareep. 3…Mareep.

*Ring* *Ring*

You awaken to the sound of your Pokewatch’s alarm going off. As you groggily sit up from your bed, you notice that Lumi is no longer at your side. There is also an unread message from Chad & your mother. She is laying curled up on the carpet floor, next to her are leftover chocolate crumbs of the small cake that you told her not to eat. Maybe you should have hidden them from her. Tiptoeing around her, you open your closet and pick an outfit to wear.

Maybe now that you have a Pokemon you should be dressing like your one of those specific-type trainers as well...You slip on some dark gray jeans, along with a black shirt with a logo that you do not recognize the brand of. Instead of choosing to wear your bright red Supreme Jacket, you opt to wear a black jacket as well with a hint of blue on the arms; Similar to the color of Lumi’s rings. Lastly, you put on a black bandana and keep it around your neck. You think you saw a picture of a guy wearing a bandana around their neck in Gardevoir Fashion Monthly. Wearing dark and grey clothing reminds you of one of those dark type gym leaders you saw on 4chan.

Moving over to Lumi you shake her lightly waking the shiny Umbreon up. She looks up at you groggily, and licks your hand. “Looks like someone has more of a sweet tooth than I thought,” you say petting her head. "Umbreon," Lumi says. “I’ll feed you breakfast when I get a chance to at a school.” You grab Lumi’s luxury ball returning her to the ball for a temporary time. As you head downstairs you notice that your father has his head down on the kitchen table, next to him is a pokemon that you’ve never seen in your household before. A Lopunny, in her hands are pancakes and eggs. Your father looks up from the kitchen table with bulging eyes. “Son, what are you doing here? I thought you were um…with Chad?”

>“I live here…Chad went to some party last night. Did he not come back? Where’s mom?”

You sit down at the table, the Lopunny wearing a frilly maid outfit saunters over behind you, her shoulders high, and slim hips moving while carrying the plate of food in her hands. She places a hand on your shoulder and the food on the table. In your ear there is a low-whisper “Lopunny”. Once more you have no idea what it means, looking around behind you she winks as she disappears into the kitchen. “…So what's her name?” you ask staring at your Buneary shaped pancakes, with whip cream on top. “She’s um,” your father pauses for a moment and stares into the kitchen. “Mia, she’s just visiting…” Nodding your head and smiling slightly you quickly slip on your black shoes and sling your bag over your shoulder. After firing a quick peace sign to your father you say, “my man” and quickly walk out of the front of the house leaving your breakfast behind and your father staring at you in bewilderment.

The sun is barely peeking over the houses of the neighborhood, as you make your way towards the bus stop. Though you do feel somewhat hungry after skipping out on breakfast like that. When you reach the bus stop there is a girl with blond hair, wearing a pretty purple school uniform. In her hand is a Pokeball. You think her name was Christine, though you don’t know much about her. She looks over in your direction, and does a small polite wave before looking back at her Pokeball.

Sorry for slow updates, busy today. I should have more time tomorrow hopefully.

To help pass the time you take out your Pokewatch flipping to your unread messages opening one from Chad.

>[Hey bro, I’m going to be sleeping over at the Pokecenter with mom, the Pokebros and I are too tired from partying all night]

Closing out of Chad’s message you open up the message from your mother.

>[Sorry son, I won’t be able to cook breakfast for you. They have me working a double shift, I’ll be back around 11:30 while you're in school]

*Ping*

>Pokenews Alert: A flock of Butterfree will be migrating over the city later this morning, there will be a BBQ viewing party at UpperSouthPeakStreet in a few hours.

“Yeah, I don't want mom and dad to divorce,” you mutter to yourself as you open up a messenger to your father.

>[Hey Dad, quick heads up. Mom told me that she’d be home around 11:30 so whatever your doing : wink emoji: get it cleaned up]

After a few seconds, you receive a photo message containing the Lopunny from earlier. In the photo is your father being hugged by the Lopunny surrounded by heart emoji’s.

>[Next time, stay for the breakfast I made for you. Love Mia ]

After waiting around the bus finally comes, as the doors swing open to the bus you are greeted with the smiling face, of the Spanglish speaking bus driver Pedro. “Hola Virgil ¿Que tal? Hoy hace frío, ¿eh? Luco is dando burritos calientes hoy. Asegúrate de agarrar one.” Pedro points to his Ludicolo in the seat behind him. In the Ludicolo’s hand is a large burrito wrapped in aluminum foil. The bus is full of students, there are some smaller Pokemon sitting on people’s lap. Chad doesn’t seem to be on the bus currently. In the back of the bus you see Sebastian waving his hand at you, there is also an open seat next to a girl with white hair tied in a ponytail. You could also just sit next to Luco the Ludicolo if you’d like.

You grab and begin to stare at the large warm burrito from Luco as you make your way over to Sebastian. “Hey there Virgil so let me tell you about the party…” While Sebastian rambles on about the party last night you can’t help but think about your father and Mia... Actually you should probably listen to Sebastian talk about the party… “So as I was saying Virgil, Gardevoir monthly came by…”

The photo message that Mia sent you flashes back into your thought process… “Mia wrote that message to me, right? It wasn’t dad?... No no no, it couldn’t be. Why would he?” A speedbump on the road breaks your thought process. Sebastian is still rambling about the party mentioning that Chad is receiving an award from the Gym Leader of the town today. Though the details soon melt away from your attention as you remember the breakfast that you left behind.

“Mia, made the breakfast, she sent the text message, she was able to understand the message that was meant for your father. Could she possibly teach Lumi how to read and write in English? It could be possible right? Mia could cook, read & write just like any other human and she isn’t even a psychic type.”

Sebastian pats your shoulder, breaking you out of your thoughts once more. You’ve arrived at school. Stepping off the bus you notice that some students are heading inside, and socializing. Others are holding a Pokeball in their hand talking about battling before classes start. Maybe you should research more about this later? Why wait though? There is some time before class, though you haven’t eaten yet because you were distracted with your thoughts. Lumi hasn’t eaten either.

You wave Sebastian goodbye, as you walk towards a nearby bench area away from the rest of the crowd of students who are going about their business. Taking out Lumi’s Luxury ball, you release her next to you. “Umbreon,” Lumi says as she comes out of her ball. Lumi’s nose twitches as she smells the nearby aroma. She moves on to your lap before nuzzling the still somewhat warm burrito in your other hand. Knowing what she wants, you unwrap the burrito and watch as she holds onto it using her front legs to keep it in place. Petting her softly, you open up your Pokewatch to the internet to begin your research, where do you start?

You decide to go on 4chan to look for any info, thankfully you browse the threads on the /pokemon/ board often so you already know where to go. First, you browse through /PSY/ and learn that just giving them an alphabet and teaching them slowly may work if they are smart enough already. Though there is a post about something called “LitTransference” that makes the process quicker? After browsing on /PSY/ you take a few bites out of the burrito, before switching threads to /PHG/ due to the Manaphy being in your local area. After some interesting, and eyebrow-raising things about something called “heart swap,” you get sidetracked and go on a thread of Pokemon wearing clothes. You take another bite from your burrito. Lumi lays on your arm, full of the burrito. Looking at the time in the upper left corner you still have time for one more search before you must get to class.

Opening up a new tab on your poke-watch you search up the term “heart swap”, in an article there is a picture of a Manaphy with a pink glowing antennae. The ends of Manaphy's antennae glow pink and each produces a pink energy from them. The two energy balls find a Pokémon or human, and when both energies touch the opponent, their souls are switched. After a while, the effects fade, the longest known swap lasted for 3 days. A person who was allegedly swapped with their Garchomp stated, that they were able to understand other pokemon speaking during and after the swap. Though many philosophers claim this is just a hoax and is just a trick of the mind. Other case studies state that the effect could be theoretically permanent if those affected are too far from each other, or trapped in a Pokeball. Due to the effort for conservation of the Manaphy species, some people find these studies unethical. The last known sighting of Manaphy was near the river or UpperNorthPeak Street.

The warning bell for class rings throughout the school. You pet Lumi as she picks her head up in your arms. “It’s time for me to go to class now Lumi, you can sleep in the ball,” you say as you return her into the luxury ball…As you walk into Mrs. Floquishia’s classroom you can see on the whiteboard in large letters “TEST TODAY”. You take your seat next to a white-haired girl that you can’t remember the name of, she is wearing a purple shirt that says “Koffing” on it.

Mrs. Floquishia teaches general philosophy so you were ready for this test, though the first question and second question you draw a blank. Questioning why it's on a philosophy test. Regardless a test is a test, and you’ll be damned if you fail it. You got a good nights sleep, and didn’t go to the party. You got this!

The questions on the test continued to be about battling techniques, & strategies. Other questions asked you about the dietary habits of your Pokemon. Some of the questions were thankfully on the study guide. Looking around the room many of the students have their hands on their heads or have their papers flipped over. Looking to your right you can see the white hair girl trying to cheat off your paper.

Feeling a little nice, you decide to help the white hair girl next to you. You stretch one of your arms to the side, and with the other, you casually move your paper to the right. Mrs. Floquisha looks in your direction for a moment, then turns away quickly looking back at her computer. After a few minutes, Mrs. Floquisha stands up and claps her hands. “Alright y’all times up. Pass yo papers to the front of the class so I can collect them. After that, you all are free to go about your day, stay on campus please and meet in the gym at noon. There will be an announcement.” You pass your paper to the front of the class, and Mrs. Floquisha goes around picking them up, before motioning towards the door as she carries the papers to her desk. As you walk out of the classroom the white hair girl motions you to follow her into a less crowded hallway.

“Thanks for helping me out on that test. Couldn’t have done it without you. I was at that party last night performing because I owed Sebastian a favor…Your Chad’s brother right? He was talking about you at the party.” she asks.

“Y-yes Chad is my brother. You know it’s easier to just study than to try and cheat. Next time you and I could just meet up to study before the test.” You say.

The white hair girl stares at you for a moment before speaking. “Hmmm, I’d like that, but I’m a very busy person between concerts, making new songs, and semi-running a gym.” She takes out a small piece of paper and pen, handing it to you. “My name is Roxie leader of the Virbank City in Unova. Though right now my Step-sister is running the place while I attend school here. For thanks for helping me out, I’ll give you a choice, you can either have these 2 ultra balls, or I’ll buy you lunch of your choice, when I’m not busy. I saw on your paper that you only own one Pokemon. Most people I know have at least 3-5.” Roxie holds out 2 ultra balls in the palm of her hand.

Obviously the thought of not spilling our Italian sauce all over the ground when talking to a girl will take priority for most anons, and myself, my main concern is about the ultra balls.

Was it ever specified exactly how much money we had in our pockets? If we ever get into a battle with a particularly strong wild pokemon, an ultra ball would do well with delaying the beast whilst we escape. Then again, we could just buy the ultra balls, which is why i question our monetary situation and how exactly we go about acquiring money.


>“I’ll take you up on your lunch offer sometime."
'2 Ultra balls seems a bit much for a couple of test answers. Besides, I'm not exactly sure how I would flesh out my team anyway.'


Realistically, we would want other pokemon aside from our Umbreon (like our father's Lopunny right?) that could cover for bad type match-ups.

Umbreon is a dark type physical wall, right?
We will eventually need to flesh out, at least picking up 2 more pokemon, just as a safety net for bad type MUs.

I mean, it felt like our father's Lopunny was throwing a couple of hints our way, but ya can't be too sure.

Dratini though? Nice. Doubt we'll get a psuedo mon this early or ever, would make us a bit too strong. We need adversity to overcome or else this becomes less "Quest" and more "FA".

Either way, I'm here for it.

“I’ll take you up on your offer for lunch sometime then,” you say putting Roxie’s number into your poke-watch. You send her a quick text message back, letting her know that it’s you. Roxie places her hands in her pockets, and swings her hips in a circle. “Well…I should get going now, I’ll be seeing you around then Virgil.” Roxie punches your shoulder lightly and walks away, melding into the crowd of students.

You leave the main school building, and walk towards a large oak tree. There are a few Pidgeys nestled close together as they watch you approach. Sitting down by the trunk you release Lumi out of her Luxury ball. She runs around the area before licking your face and laying on your side. You pet her softly across her back, she looks at you with a delighted and relaxed expression. Searching up the term "LitTransfernce" you tap on the first search result. You're taken to an article describing what LitTransfernce is and the dangers that go along with it.

LitTransference: The transferring of knowledge from one being to another through a psychic link. Typically initiated by a third party. In essence, if the user wants to impose knowledge of something into another being quickly they may perform a “LitTransference” to allow them to gain this knowledge. Though the act of linking two minds together is simple, many things can go wrong during the process. For the process to work initially the two must be thinking of the same thing of what is being transferred. If one of the minds were to wander off, the knowledge may be lost completely. If there is a third party in play that originally linked the two minds together, messes up during the process or loses focus the two minds could be negatively effected such as:

>Thinking same thoughts at same time
>Unable to think
>Loss of Knowledge being transferred
>Brain Dead
>Death

Though even with these negative effects in place some are still willing to attempt the transfer. If they are going through a 3rd party, the minds being linked may sign a waiver so that the 3rd party is not liable for any mishaps. There are those who have tried to allow their Pokemon to learn a human language, or what some consider the “pokemon language”. Though this process is much more difficult for all parties involved and is more risky due to the very low success rate. LitTransference was illegalized in the Reborn Region two years ago due to an accident involving one of the Elite 4 members.

“How would you like to learn a new language Lumi?” you ask. The Umbreon looks at you and tilts her head. She then places a paw on your cheek and nods her head in understanding. You go back into the previous 4chan thread of /PokeHuntersGeneral/ and look for any updates regarding the Manaphy, but the thread has devolved into shitposts and memes regarding some anon failing to catch a Scyther using an Magmar. The last seen location supposedly was still near a river by UpperNorthPeak Street. Looking at the clock on your poke-watch you can see that the current time is 11:00 am and there is still some time before you have to go to the gym.

You pet Lumi’s back once more and nudge her awake, “Can you show me what moves you know? We’ve never battled together before,” you say. Lumi ears perk up as she moves quickly off you. She opens her mouth amassing a ball of dark energy before firing it off into the air. The ball of dark energy dissipates after it travels a short distance.
>Shadow Ball

Lumi then lowers her tail and a green field of “energy?” Surrounds her.
>Protect

Looking into the same direction that she previously tossed a Shadow ball a small multicolored ball of light travels slowly a short distance before dissipating.
>Confuse Ray

Lumi looks at you for a moment here pupil changes to the color pink, before reverting to its normal color. You feel more relaxed around Lumi.
>Charm

Finally, you see a streak of white light appear from Lumi’s body as she runs towards you, hitting your abdomen knocking the air out of your stomach. Thankfully you can catch your breath quickly.
>Quick Attack

Outside of these attacks, you know that if commanded the Pokemon will do other basic “attack actions” such as:
>Bite
>Growl
>Tackle
>Tailwhip
>etc.

“Good Job Lumi, we can work on more moves later if you like. I need to be getting to the gym,” you say as you pet her. “Umbreon,” Lumi says as she is recalled into the luxury ball. As you head to the gym you send Chad a message.”

>[I got a girl’s number, any advice on how I should go forward?]

You quickly get an automated response from Chad’s answering machine.

>[Chad Tankerson is unavailable for Text/Calls currently…Hi, it’s Chad sorry I couldn’t take your text or call I’m currently battling the local water type gym leader. I’ll get back to you ASAP.]

Seeing that Chad is currently unavailable you send a message towards your dad. Opening up your previous chat log with him, you see that the photo of him and Mia has been deleted.

>[Hey Dad, I got a girl’s number. Do you have any advice?]

Chat bubbles appear for a few minutes before you receive the text.

>[Thank you for warning me about your mother, son. I trust that you won’t speak about earlier with anyone…If there is any fatherly advice I can give you it would be, “If a woman is interested in you, and seem to be trying to make any advances on you. “RIDE. THAT. WAVE.” Even if that wave is strange. Don’t hesitate and go for it. They probably like you more than you think.]

As you head into you the gymnasium you see that there are 9 chairs on the floor in the middle of the room. Students are filing quickly into the bleachers of the gymnasium. You can see Roxie with a group of girls holding guitar cases, you can also see Sebastian just now entering the entrance of the gym.

We don't want to seem like a complete loner, but we don't want to walk up to him, not find a seat, and then walk back to an empty spot away from him.

Isn't Sebastian kinda a bastard anyway? Doesn't seem like a quality friend from the interactions we had so far.

Let's just find an empty seat away from both roxie and seb. Don't want to seem creepy by trying to walk into Roxie's social circle so early in the acquaintanceship.

You shake your head and decide to not sit next to Roxie. You just met her and she looks like she is with some of her friends right now. It's best to avoid an awkward conversation. Sebastian has been kind of a dick to you lately, you only hung out with him because Chad thought you needed a friend and introduced you to him. You quickly decide to just take a seat near the bottom of the bleachers and wait for whatever they are going to announce.

Munch Crunch Munch

Looking to your left is your philosophy professor Mrs. Floquisha. She is munching on a large bag of Takis. “Hey Virgil, nice job on that test today. Highest grade in the school. You remind me a little bit of my husband.”
>“What do you mean highest grade in the school?”

>>4066485
I actually liked the rolling thing. Could help spice things up. Ya know, evens something good happens, odd bad, the higher the number the better/worse the event becomes, etc, etc.

Variety and randomness helps alleviate some of the writers block many QM's suffer from, and it lifts the burden of "Why did you give us such a bad situation" into "fucking dice gods".


Highest grade in the school is self explanatory.


>"Thanks. I reviewed the material the night before so I'm glad it panned out. Mind giving me a taki for getting the highest score?"


Although this completely circumvents the husband comment, but if she sees in us something like her husband, that might make her more inclined to like us subconsciously.

As long as we don't push it, that is.

“Mrs. Floquishia, quick question. If all life is connected is there also a language that connects all and universally understood?” Mrs. Floquisha bites into her Taki and pauses for a moment dwelling on your sudden philosophical question. “Well Virgil, not sure where this question came from, but I’ll humor you. Maybe when we first came into this world Pokemon & Humans were equal and spoke the same language. Nowadays this is not the case, and we have mediators, psychics, linguistics, that help “connect us all.” Mrs. Floquisha takes another bite out of her Takis. “If your so curious about learning another language, ask Pedro the bus driver I think he speaks Spanish. Hell, you could just go on Google Translate.” You nod your head at Mrs. Floquisha’s response.

“By the way? Could I get one of those Taki’s?” you ask. Mrs. Floquisha looks at you with her eyelids half-closed. “No. Buy your own….Just kidding here’s one.” Mrs. Floquisha hands you one Taki, you nibble it for a moment before putting it fully in your mouth. The extra spicy flavor of the Taki burns your mouth somewhat, but thankfully she only gave you one.

The principal walks into the gymnasium with a microphone and everyone goes silent. “Hello students, you may be wondering what the test that you received today was about. Well, our school was elected to have a ‘Pokemon Tournament’ where the winner of the tournament would go on to star in a commercial promoting the Pokemon League, a large cash prize, and a secret prize as well. The test was to pick out the 9 best students to compete in a single-elimination 2on2 single battle. If you do not have a second Pokemon I recommend that you borrow or capture one. The only way to not participate is through a medical excuse. I will call out a name and I would like that person to please step up, introduce yourself, and give a small speech.” Mrs. Floquisha slaps your back lightly.

“Virgil Tankerson. Virgil Tankerson. Could you please come up next to me.” You stand up and walk next to the principal. Looking into the crowd of students there, you can see Roxie and her friends staring at you. Sebastian has his phone out, recording whatever your about to say. Mrs. Floquisha is idly chewing her Taki’s starting at you…in fact the entire student body is staring at you waiting for you to say something.

>Roll me 1d100 (Taking best roll out 3)(1’s & 100’s crit respectively)
>>
>>4066647
If she was his first Pokemon, we'd have known about her beforehand. At the very least he wouldn't be trying to hide her from Virgil's mother.

And why are we the homewrecker if the professor cheats?

Just because you walk by a candy shop while on a diet doesn't mean you're obligated to chow down, right?

She'd be the homewrecker, not us.

Some confidence wells inside of you as you step up to the podium, “My name is Virgil Tankerson.” You point your thumb at yourself, and with your other hand, you release Lumi. “We got this in the bag.” You say confidently. In the bleachers, many are taking out their phones and photo-taking devices out of their bags.

>“It’s a shiny Umbreon!”
>“I want one!”

It takes a moment for the crowd to settle down as you take your seat. Lumi sits in your lap looking up to you. You pet her softly across her back. The principal then proceeds with a few other names that come up to the podium, introducing themselves and giving a small speech. “Last but not least, I’d like to invite Roxie Homika to the podium.” Roxie stands up from the bleachers, on her back is a large guitar case. Her friends around her are cheering her naming, others in the crowd are spelling out “Dougars”.

“Hey everyone. My name is Roxie Homika, and if I win I’ll use the money to buy everybody here, 'Oddish head'(weed)". The crowd bursts into a cheer while some of the teachers and the principal look disgruntled. Mrs. Floquisha is giving Roxie a thumbs up. Roxie leaves the podium and sits down in the row of seats.

“Ahem.” The principal says, "disregarding that statement there will be two other students who weren’t able to join us, but qualify due to their 'status' in the school. Christine Orlorn your student council president, and Chad Tankerson who has qualified due to a recommendation from our city’s water type Gym Leader ‘The Masked Taco’. A message to those students who have qualified you are exempted from all classes and work for the next two days, starting as of now. I suggest you use this time to train for the tournament, as it will be broadcasted on live television. That’ll be all.” The Principal steps away from the podium. Several of the students come down the bleachers surrounding you and the others who were picked.

>“Hey where did you get that Umbreon?”
>“Is it a guy or a girl?”
>“Can I hold it?”
>“Can I pet it?”
>“What do you feed it? It looks a little bottom-heavy.”
>“Let me take a picture with it!”
>“Want to trade? I have a super-strong Metapod.”

Hiss!

As you continue to be surrounded by people and bombarded by questions, Lumi hisses at the people in front of you causing them to back away and a few to stop asking questions. Looking at Lumi she seems to be uncomfortable surrounded by this many people.

Seconding but only one burger. Someone noticed she's getting thicc.
And if she's still angry and needs to let off some steam let's fight a wild pokemon. If she wins she gets the second burger.
>>
>>4067239
>It looks a little bottom-heavy

Lumi is confirmed fat because she ate 1 and a half burgers and like, 3 mini chocolate cakes.

OP what do we have in our bag? I keep forgetting. We still have a pokeball, right?

We need to go into the forest and pick up a new pokemon, not to mention help Lumi work off some of those calories.

I question though, what region are we in, if any? Trying to determine what are the common pokes in the nearby forests.
>>
>>4067283
You have:
$860 Pokedollars
1 Pokeball
Poke-Watch(Smartphone basically)
Lumi's Luxury Ball.

When I was worldbuilding in the beginning somewhat I was being somewhat cautious of what local wild pokemon there were. So I'll have to say that you living a town in the Johto Region. That has a water-type Gym leader.

Alright, that gives us a tighter FOV when it comes to the local wildlife, and that also tells us the world has more than the standard 8 gym leaders, most likely one for each type, that a trainer can go to for a circuit, but that some are more popular than others, most likely due to them being the path that previous champions went, and surging from legend into legacy and from tribulation into tradition.

>>4067290
You're not wrong, but there is a difference between thicc and plain fat. Keeping in shape is sure to flesh out Lumi as well.
>>4067302
this anon sees the truth.

We'll probably spend half of today searching for a pokemon in the first place if anything.

No eating until later in the day.
>>
>>4067302
Ok, how about we give Lumi a good look over if we don't like what we see, then we step up the nightly walk to a nightly jog, as for the battling we are about to have some in the forest.

>>
>>4067381
can we also get a description of Lumi this will shead some ~insight~ on how we should proceed.
>>
>>4067383
Ya sure. I can provide this before I start to write.

Lumi looks like your average Umbreon except that she is shiny. If an Umbreon's glowing rings are faint, and not glowing bright during night, it may be a sign that they are in poor health. As for Lumi, she is currently in good overall health based on what you can tell, though you have been feeding her & yourself "Thicc Emboar Hamburgers" (known for their juicy tastes, and to build fat into people and Pokmon quickly) on your nightly walks. Also part of Pedro the bus driver's burrito may be a factor in this. Examining Lumi she is indeed gaining some fat towards her lower body, mostly around her glute & back-upper legs.

Chad has told you in the past that to gain muscle you have to gain some fat. With a good workout regimen that fat can turn into a well-toned body. Which could lead to a better overall performance.

(So some junk in the trunk isn't that bad, but if left alone it can be unhealthy.)
>>
>>4067422
then it's a good thing we are about to do a lot of training.

Holding Lumi close to your chest you push past the large group of students in your way. Quickly running for the exit. Some of the students follow you, but slow down and turn away as they see you leave the school grounds. When you think you are far enough away from the school, you pet Lumi’s head comforting her. “It’s alright there are less people now,” you say. Lumi jumps on to your shoulder and licks your face repeatedly. Wiping off her slobber you walk into the nearby forest that Lumi looked into last night.

As you enter the forest the treetops created a canopy over your head. Patches of sun can be seen through small opening above you. There is a gentle breeze, creating the sound of rustling leaves. If you listen carefully you can hear the distinct sound of different Pokemon cries in the forest, though you see none at the current moment. As you delve deeper into the forest you come across a large clearing. In the center there is a burnt-out campfire, it looks fairly fresh. Perhaps someone was camping out here the night before. “Let’s do some training Lumi.” Lumi shakes her head in disapproval. “…I’ll buy you a hamburger if you do. I’ll even train with you!” you say. Lumi had already jumped off your shoulder when you mentioned the word hamburger.

What kind of training do you want to do?

>>
>>4067890
Dude cool your hormones let's let the story develop before you get your thick sex slave pokemon.
I vote we substitute the emboar burger for a fish burger. It has alot of protein and less fat with beneficial omega acid.
>>
>>4067938
We already promised LumI a burger not a "fish" burger, besides by maintaining a healthy workout we can use turn that extra mass into a healthy thiccness
>>
Unbeknownst to all of you, seducing your own pokemon, creatures that will follow any command you deliver even if you're just a child, is the ultimate virgin move.
That's why I'm both disappointed and excited to see how this goes.
>>
>>4068035
As that Virgin kid hit puberty they will then start to see there pokemon partners in a ~new~ and wonderful light.
>>
>>4067988
Yes a burger. We didn't specify what kind. And besides dont felinids like fish? What if she likes it better?
>>
>>4068047
Lumi isn't stupid she will know we implied a real burger. But I take your point, we can try it how ever we better be ready for her to be mad that we tricked her. However I recommend that instead of trying to take away the burgers we just work in healthy foods into her diet.

I'm still surprised that Roxie, a gym leader from a different region entirely, has decided to resume her studies in our school of places. I suppose that is possible, if she must resume her educations than it does make sense that she would choose somewhere people are less familiar with her.
Now that leaves only question left. . .
Why Poke-Mexico of all places?
>>
>>4068179
Mexicans like hard rock and metal.
>>
>>4068179
Adding to this perhaps pedro the bus driver has some old musical ventures he keeps to himself but roxie knows about. Like a musician that made himself disappear and started a new life
>>
>>4068183
I did not know that, but I do know that most of Mexico is religious, Catholic, I believe. If the same applies to this region, then would worship Arceus?
I can only imagine our mother praying for us to get a girlfriend, hopefully not a Lopunny.
>>
>>4068197
what do you not like ~carrot cake~ or something?
>>
>>4068197
Theres also alot of santa muerte worshippers (st death) in mexico especially among the criminal underground. So maybe theres some giratina(?) Worshippers too. Also I think we should find lumi old trainer and beat his ass.

If Arceus is God then who would Jesus be?

Wouldn't it make more sense for them to worship Yvetal then? It would fit with the scenery of the desert, either way, "gansta" shirts and blankets of them are sold at flea markets for certain.

“Let’s see if we can find any wild Pokemon to fight. The best training, is experience right?” you say pumping a fist into the air. Lumi jumps up in agreement. “Umbreon.”

Theme: https://youtu.be/iPUllY0KNOM

The two of you don’t have to stray far from the clearing till you encounter your first wild Pokemon. It’s carrying an oran berry in its hands as its walking by you. The pink bipedal Pokemon looks in your direction. Giving it a closer look you can tell that it’s a Snubbull due to its ugly appearance. Your mother actually wanted a Snubbull as a house pet but got outvoted by the rest of the family and you adopted Pantheon instead. The Snubbull drops the oran berry in its hands and looks in your direction growling. Snubbull looks like it's about to charge at you. Lumi moves in front of you, waiting for your command. This is your first time battling alongside a Pokemon, you’ve seen matches online & the television. You’ve climbed the OU Ladder in Pokemon Showdown. This shouldn’t be that bad right?

You’re in a forest-ish area, with several trees around you. There is enough space for Lumi and you to walk or run around in. There doesn’t seem to be any other Pokemon in the area. What do you do? (Write-ins are always welcome)

Umbreon: Semi-Pass
Snubbull: Crit Fail(No Pass)

“Quick attack him Lumi!,” you yell. Lumi runs at the Snubbull at a fast pace a blue & white streak of light appears behind her. The wild Snubbul charges at Lumi head first, but is slower due to its bipedal legs. The Snubbull trips on itself as it charges and takes the full brunt of Lumi’s attack. Lumi jumps backward clearing her head, before looking forwards. Snubbull falls backward into the trunk of a tree. It stands up again moving slowly from side to side, it looks slightly dazed, but still seems to want to fight.

Umbreon: Pass
Snubbull: Crit

“Quick attack him till he’s down Lumi!” you say. Lumi once more runs at Snubbul at a fast pace, the blue & white streak appears behind her. This time the wild Snubbull is more prepared for Lumi’s and waits for her to get close, before bending down and headbutting hard under her chin. The impact of the blow sends Lumi into the air, crashing into a small bush. “Lumi!” you yell looking into the bush she fell into. The Snubbull then begins to charge at you but is knocked away by another quick attack from Lumi. “Um-breooon”. Lumi hisses at the Snubbull that is now knocked out.

>Battle Over

Lumi walks over to you and lays down on the grassy floor catching her breath. With one of her front paws, she is rubbing the underside of her chin. “Good Job, Lumi,” you say petting her. She rubs her face against your hand licking it.

When you knock out a pokemon, they tend to wake up soon after.

Once that pokemon wakes up, however, they usually aren't raring to go. They're still injured, they aren't fully healed or rested.
Defeated pokemon tend to dip after a lost confrontation, considering how weak they are from losing.

There's no need for lumi to wail on the snubble after beating it, just feed Lumi the oran berry, make sure to rub her chin, and find another fight.

The issue that we should be concerned about is how inexperienced we are as battlers. The fact that the wild mons get to roll 3 times means they have higher odds of criting us. We need to play this correctly.

Confuse ray+attack, not just *atk atk atk atk*.
We aren't barbarians.

>Look for more wild pokemon after feeding Lumi the berry.

>>4068567
Thanks for an acceptable response. Not some edgy cringe.

I have a theory for why pokemon are so eager to fight despite fainting, but to be fair it's based on my own setting.
My theory is that pokemon moves utilize some kind of energy that coressponds with each type, and fainting is simply the energies out of wack in the pokemon.
>>
>>4068567
You are correct

>>4068568

>>4068570
I assume it's a second wind kind of deal, but that most lower evolution pokemon recognize they won't win and are at risk of dying should they continue to fight, where as higher evolution pokemon, like Ursaring, tend to have a lot more to lose *territory, mates, cubs*, and thus will seek to re-challenge should they feel in danger.

Being cautious of the knocked out Snubbull you pick the oran berry that it was carrying off the floor. Dusting off any dirt you give it Lumi, “Here eat this you’ve earned it,” you say as Lumi lets out a delighted cry and eats into the oran berry.

Rustle. Rustle.

Looking up you notice a large purple Pokemon appear from out of the trees. A Granbull. It walks over with its paws raised in the air. Lumi stops eating the oran berry and growls at the approaching Granbull. “Granbull-bull,” the Pokemon says to Lumi. Lumi stops growling, but still eyes the Granbull cautiously as it picks up the Snubbull, off the ground. It does a human-like wave goodbye before disappearing again into the forest. “Well, it doesn’t seem that it wanted to fight…I wonder if it had a trainer before,” you say muttering to yourself. You pet Lumi for a bit while she rests up. She seems ready to go look for another fight.

Nah. You'll have to go by how your pokemon looks like when it's in battle & see what's effective or not. Virgil is a smart dude, 2100 on the OU Showdown ladder, I'm sure he can tell when his Pokemon is close to fainting. If Lumi looks like she's about to faint from one more hit I'll make it very clear that is the case.

As you delve deeper into the forest you notice that there is a larger tree density and more overgrowth in the tree branches. Less sunlight is breaking through this part of the forest. Lumi’s rings begin to grow brighter illuminating the two of you as you continue to walk. The two of you are silent, as a gentle breath of wind carries the sounds of various Pokemon cries in the distance. Lumi stops walking and gets into a defensive stance. Two Pokemon appear hanging from a tree branch, it has 8 small yellow legs, their mandibles are a bright red. Though on their actual faces they look like they are upset at your presence.

Two Spinarak have appeared, their mouths are frothing with a purple liquid. Currently, you're in a dense forest area, you don’t have too much space to move around in, but it should just be enough for Lumi. The Spinarak is hanging from a tree by their silk. They are currently stationary.

We should consider catching one of them.
Especially if they have poison moves.

In a doubles format, we need a front line and a back line, so having Spinarak use sticky web and poison sting while Lumi is the aggressor can work pretty well.

“Use confuse ray on the Spinarak on the left,” you yell throwing your arms down in a sideways motion. Lumi's eyes shift to pink sending out a multicolored ball of light towards the Spinarak on left. As the ball comes near it, the Spinarak swings its dangling body to the left, dodging the confuse ray. The multicolored ball of light continues to travel hitting a passing by Pidgey causing it to be confused and fly around in circles. It bumps into the tree branch that the Spinarak are on; causing it to shake. Spinarak(A) sends out a volley of poison stings that fall flat, and miss due to the shaking of the branch. Spinarak(B) attempted to spit purple gunk, but due to the shaking, it causes him to choke on his poisonous spit. “Turns out our missed attack attempt helped us out.” You say.

>Spinarak A looks healthy.
>Spinarak B looks healthy but is coughing on his spit.

>What’s your next move? (I’ll allow up to 2 moves be picked for write-ins for now. If you protect twice I’ll have you roll a d2. For Example: If this turn you use Shadowball & Protect, its ok. Next turn if you go Shadow Ball & Protect You’ll have to roll a d2.)

“Let’s try to use confuse ray once more!” you say. Once again Lumi’s eyes shift to pink sending out a multicolored ball of light towards the Spinarak. This time the Spinarak is expecting the slow-moving confuse ray and dodges it by dropping down from the tree branch and quickly skittering over to Lumi, biting down on her front legs hard with its red mandibles(bug bite). “Breeoon” Lumi hisses.

[r] Super Effective [/r]

The Spinarak (B) in trees fires another volley of poisonous needles at Lumi. “Protect quickly!!” you yell out. While fighting through the pain of the Spinarak attached to her leg, Lumi brings up a protective green field of energy in front of her. The needles strike the barrier, breaking and falling harmlessly onto the floor. After the protect drops Lumi jumps around in place failing to remove the pest on her leg. Seeing that Lumi is currently having trouble getting rid of the Spinarak latched on to her leg you grab a nearby stick. You run up to Lumi using the stick, striking the Spinarak causing it to lose its grip and fall off.

>Virgil used whack! (If you can think of a better name for hitting something with a stick, I’m all ears)

Subsequently, without your command, Lumi quickly attacks the Spinarak (A) causing it to get knockback somewhat. Lumi looks at you, and nods her head smiling. "Umbreon".

>Spinarak (A) looks weak, one more hit could knock it out.
>Spinarak (B) looks healthy, it’s body is turned towards you know that you’ve joined the fight. It’s still hanging off the tree.

>Lumi is still looking strong, despite the super effective hit.

Feel like we're not fully planning ahead.

It's a 1v2 for us (we don't count), and we're trying to split our attacks between 2 opponents instead of focusing one and knocking it out and making it a 1v1?

We've all played pokemon, lets rethink this and focus on knocking out one spinarak first.

We don't want to get close to them, want to avoid those venomous mandibles, so lets use Shadowball.

>Shadowball the branch that Spinarak B is on, causing it to break the string it's attached to, and then Shadowball again on the helpless spinarak.

We'll have to ignore S. A, but we're down on options.

I'm not gonna count your vote anon due to me not knowing if you meant "Quick attack" or another move. I thought about taking the vote under the assumption that you wanted to use Quick Attack, but I'm unsure as to what "attack" you wanted to use on the Spinarak. (The vote would have been a tie & I'd have to roll a d2 between the 2 parties).

I believe in y'all, you got this. Give me 2d10's. Go ahead and roll a d10 as normal, I'll add the +2 to it manually.

“Finish off the weaker Spinarak (A) with quick attack Lumi!” you say. As soon as the words leave your mouth Lumi sprints towards the Spinarak (A) faster then she had done before. The weakened Spinarak (A) is unable to dodge, as it gets hit by the full force of Lumi’s attack, causing it to fly upwards knocking off the Spinarak (B) on the tree branch, and fall on to the floor. Spinarak (B) pushes his partner’s unconscious body off and fires a string shot at your legs, tying them together causing you to fall over. The Spinarak tries to skitter over to you but is instead grazed by a ball of dark energy. “Breon-um-um” you hear Lumi hiss at the Spinarak. The Spinarak turns its full attention towards her.

>Spinarak (A) is knocked out.
>Spinarak (B) is damaged slightly, but a good combo attack could knock him out.

we should knock it out first to catch it though. the question is which one we should catch. No pokedex means we're operating blindly
>>
>>4070401
I'm against catching Spinarak, I don't think they would work well in a team battle.
>>
>>4070406
Ok, but it might take a while to find a good pokemon or We could just focus on Lumi.
Also QM if you can after the battle show us lumi stats like her spd, atk, and def. Thx
>>
>>4070406
As it stands, Lumi is our front liner and ace.

Since Lumi is gonna be the one in the most danger, we need a good support pokemon, and a spinarak/ariados would be very good as a support mon. Bugs evolve early, so we could hit a nice powerspike in a few days we wouldnt get from other pokemon.

Theres a strong case for Spinarak being our second mon for the tournament.
>>
>>4070399
If you attempt to catch a pokemon before, knocking it out it has a chance to break out. (You'll roll a 1d100).

I'll wait 30 minutes, then roll a d4. To break tie or w/e.
>>4070284
>>4070303
>>4070317
>>4070414
>>
>>4070414
I would like to have a psychic type as our second since we both agree that Lumi is our front liner. Psychic types make for good support mon. also bug type trainers never amount to anything in pokemon.
>>
>>4070421
It's guaranteed to catch if you knock it out though, better balls will make the Pokemon easier to catch as well.
>>
>>4070421
>>Quick Attack and then finish him with tackle!
>>
>>4070426
I agree that we need a stronger mon, but the tournament is in 2-3 days, and we're most likely not going to find a ralts that easily, not to mention how weak any lower tier psychic type is.

I'm not advocating it be a mainstay. We need a good support mon with access to lots of statuses and spinarak offers that. If we find a better support mon then def, Im having a hard time thinking of what else we could find in this forest that could beat a spinarak.in terms of support.
>>
>>4070443
I think we should spend more time looking around the forest. If we find nothing else then we come back to this section and catch the spinarak that we know are in the area. does that sound like a fair compromise? if we do catch spinarak first chance we get we should ditch spinarak, I can't stand spiders. I also hate bug types.
>>
Ya I can compromise with looking around more then coming back if we don't find a better pokemon, we do only have 1 pokeball lol.
>>4070455
Support.

Thinking about it, It might be worth catching a flying type that way we can have options for air and ground based attacks.

While prone on the ground you focus on giving Lumi commands. “Quick attack!” you say. Lumi once again bursts into a large sprint, a blue & white streak of light appears behind her as she strikes the Spinarak head-on. Spinarak is hit with her brute force attack causing it to be knocked back into the tree behind it. “Finish it off with tackle!” you say. Lumi attempts to tackle the Spinarak, but it skitters away quickly underneath Lumi causing her to trip headfirst into the tree. She moves backward slowly, slightly disoriented from bashing her head into the tree. Spinarak takes this moment to leap on to Lumi’s back but misses, and hits the tree as well, knocking himself out.

Lumi seeing that the Spinarak is knocked out, she runs over to you and frees you from the string shot using her paws. You assist her using your stick. Lumi climbs on your lap, rubbing her face against your chest. “Umbreon!” she says happily. You pet Lumi looking over to the two unconscious Spinarak.

Looks like we're not catching Spinarak.

I'd like everybody to please take a look at this Pastebin, and vote on adopting these rules for combat, or keeping the current combat rules. Rolls will still be 1d10. (An example of a special event, could be a good write-in or Lumi becoming determined or something).

If you had landed the confuse ray the opponent would have had to roll to not hit himself(before rolling anything else).

>Don’t catch Spinarak
You move away from the Spinarak. While also, consider catching one of them, but decide not to and save your Pokeball for a different Pokemon companion. Lumi is saying something in her language, she sounds happy as you carry her in your arms as you walk continue to walk through the forest. Though you can’t understand any of it. Taking a look at your poke-watch you have 2 unread messages, one from your mother and a second one from Chad.

Taking a moment you sit down with Lumi and scratch behind her ear, she makes a relaxed expression as she looks up to you. Opening up your messages, you open up your chat log with Chad.

>[Bro…Two things. I’m proud of you that you got a girl’s number, so I’m going to give you the best advice I can give a guy like you. I see other nerds do it all the time, and it’s their biggest mistake. ‘Just because a girl gave you a phone number, doesn’t mean they like you…’ Well, it might, but for you, I recommend you play this safe. I can try to help you out. Does she attend our school? If so what’s her name?”]

>[Sebasitan just sent a video of you...Where and when did you get a shiny Umbreon…?]

You open up a message from your mother.

>[Chad just told me that you have a shiny Umbreon?!:0000 Where did you get him/her? Be home by dinner at 7:00 PM!! Don’t be late, your father is having a special guest over!]

Chad's a real bro despite being a chad. I feel bad about the fact we stole some cash from him. Maybe we could make it up to him by winning some cash money?
>>
I have some questions about combat rules...
How do counter-attacks work?
With defence option we can prepare a CA, what does that mean?
Also in roll passes, with 1 success we "defend or evade without a counter"
with 2, everything goes as planned.
So we can inflict some dmg, after a successful block or evade?
Please explain.

Another question, does Lumi know Bite? It's a great dark-type move and we would get the STAB.

Great quest btw. Keep up the good work :)

So, tell mom Lumi's a rescue pokemon, tell Chad you'll explain who she is to him in person since it's a bit much to type, and ask dad if the special guest coming for dinner tonight is Mia and if we should act like we haven't seen her before.

Sounds about right.

I’ll be sure to be there at 7 PM mom. Lumi is a rescue pokemon, I'll tell you more at dinner time.

After you send a quick text message to your mom you open up your previous chat message with your father.

Hey dad…Mom told me that we’re having ‘special guest’ coming over for dinner tonight? It wouldn’t happen to be Mia? If it is should I act like I haven’t seen her before?

After you send the message you receive another quickly.

Your father isn’t here right now honey, he’s busy picking out what we’re going to eat for dinner. I’m ‘borrowing his phone’. You can pretend if you’d like, it doesn’t really matter to me though. See you at dinner! U(•ㅅ•)U

Mia sends you a photo of her wearing a black blouse and short black skirt. She appears to be at the grocery store with your father, you can see him in the background. You quickly save the photo, in fear that it may be deleted again. You open up your chat message with Chad.

I’ll tell you at dinner Chad, I’m somewhat busy right now and my battery is low. Too long to type it all.

I’ll be waiting. Were having a large dinner to celebrate my victory over the Water-type gym and Dad’s having some guest over that went to college with him apparently…

Lumi hops off your lap and does some flips in place. It looks like she is ready to go fight Pokemon again. Taking a look at your watch once more you see that its 3:30 PM.

We don't give a flying Far'fetch what Mia thinks, if mom asks us why we met Mia before, she'll ask where and when, and then things 'may' fall apart. We need our father's response god dammit so we know how to proceed at dinner.

Before you stand up, you decide to message your ‘dad’ again. Thinking that you must get your story straight.

Mia. Can you please, give the phone to my dad. I don’t want to be the reason why my parent’s marriage falls apart.

You see a few dots popup and wait for the response.

[r] Hey Virgil, sorry about Mia she can be a handful at times…In more ways than one. (Lenny Face)…Sorry. Mia’s teasing is just her way of saying that she wants to get to know you. She told me that you seem to be a nice person. Come to dinner and pretend this is the first time you meet her. I bought her a new phone cause she lost hers in a lake somewhere. Sorry about that son, I still love your mother very much. If you want we can have a private chat about it after dinner. I'll explain EVERYTHING. Love dad. [/r]

Lumi runs over to you, nudging at your leg. She wants to get a move on. “Let's look for more Pokemon Lumi!” you say. Lumi walks beside you, as you delve deeper into the forest, by now your farther away than you’ve ever been from your town or society in general. Stronger Pokemon may appear deeper in the forest you go. The forest grows darker, as sunlight is unable to shine through the top of the forest. You can only see very small patches of light shine through. Thankfully Lumi’s glow keeps everything a lit.

While you walk you ponder how Mia and your father met in college? Was Mia attending the college? Did your father own Mia as a Pokemon at the time? What was your father studying at the time? Wasn’t your father dating mom at the same time as well? You shake these thoughts out of your head as you notice a light ahead. An artificial light.

After breaking through some trees you see that there is a wooden house in the woods. It looks fairly abandoned despite the bright light coming from a window on the second floor. There is a Murkrow perched on the rooftop. There’s a broken-down sign near the front. The sign is in poor condition and has some cobwebs on it. Though you can make out some words. Lumi is staring at the light on the second floor.

You’ve heard of a trainer’s refuge when you were browsing some boards in the past. Places dotted throughout the region for trainers on a long journey to rest or heal up. Normally the league comes in and manages them to keep them clean. Though this one is different. “Let’s go inside Lumi,” you say. Lumi looks at you surprised but then nods her head as you take the first step on to the porch of the building. The old wood creaks under your feet loudly as if it was going to break, but it doesn’t. You turn the doorknob and step through the entrance. Lumi follows close behind.

At first glance, you can see that the league clearly has not visited this refuge for a long time. The wooden floor is broken, and dirty. There is a nearby cupboard that has drawers that are missing, the top of it is filled with dust. There is a large staircase in front of you as well as other doors leading into different rooms. “Stay close to me Lumi lets just look around this area for now. Be on alert for anything though…”

>97 You find something ‘expensive’

As you search around for something of interest in the abandoned refuge, your and Lumi’s shadows dance together amongst the tattered and broken walls. Each step you take causes the floor creak, giving off an eerie vibe. Near one of them, there is a dusty painting of a tall white man, with a scruffy beard. To his side a young blonde-haired girl holding a Cleffa doll. “Lumi do you smell any Pokemon nearby you ask?” Lumi shakes her head. Through some further investigation, you find a small music box in a hidden drawer compartment. On the bottom of the box, you find some scribblings on the underside. It’s hard to make out what some of the words say, but you are able to discern three.

>To go back (There is an arrow pointing at the metal part of the music box to rewind it & play music)

Opening the box you find what looks like a golden nugget. If given to the bank it can be converted into lots of money. “JACKPOT!” you yell excitedly holding the golden nugget in your hands. “I can give this to dad so he can give me the cashback!” you say. Lumi tilts her head at you, “Umbreoon?” “It means we can afford to buy you more things, like hamburgers, and Pokemon supplies. Lumi mouth opens and jumps upwards excitedly as you did before. On further inspection of the inside of the box, there is a little figurine of what you assume is a Pokemon. One that you’ve never seen before. Some of the paint on the figurine has disappeared, but you can make out that it used to be green.

Old Chateau.
Lavender City PokeCenter.
That one girl you deliver the letter to.
>>
>>4072967
>>4072969

As for the white hand in lavander town, the possibility of it being a ghost type pokemon making an illusion of a white hand is never implicitly ruled out. As we saw in Pokemon Origins, the white hand does exist, but as to whether it's really a ghost human hand as opposed to a random ghost pokemon trying to be funny or hell, even belonging to the little girl who points it out, cannot be confirmed or denied.

As for the old chateau in Sinnoh, we never get to interact with either the girl or the butler, so we once again cannot rule out the possibility that it's not a ghost pokemon's illusion. While you could make the point that any ghost pokemon would have no reason to make the illusion given the player character can't see them in the first place, I would point you to the image with eyes that follow the player when theyre not in the room with the picture.

There's no reason for the picture's 'eyes' to follow the player when theyre not even in the same room, but when you have a firered gameboy cartridge in the bottom of the DS, Gengar can be found inside that room with the picture, which confirms that ghost pokemon do shit even if there's nobody there to implicitly observe them do it. Maybe it's for their own amusement.

I understand why you're hesitant to take the box, but consider this.

If some unbeatable ghosts appear and they're clearly after the box, we can easily just leave it and run.

You guys are no fun at all. I don't understand what are you so afraid of. We've got a solid ghost buster and the power of the protagonist if things go south. The music box might even turn out to be an important quest item that needs to be delivered somewhere.

What am I missing?
>>
>>4073773
We understand how to deal with and contain ghost types, not real Ghosts there is a difference. All the cunning and cruelty of a human with the power of a ghost type truly a terrifying prospect.

We already looted the nugget and nothing happened. How's this case any different?
>>
>>4073782
>>4073782
Ghosts in the legend are typically bound to places, objects. I will bet my left testicle that the music box is what is haunted by touching it we have made our presence know to the Ghost that exists here. Some spooky shit is probably about to happen now that we are going to play it. God help it we try and take it.

the gold nugget isn't the anchor holding the ghost to this plane of existence I think it's the music box.
>>
>>4073801
That's a lot of guess work, but with valid points.
What do you think will happen when we play the music? It seems almost everyone voted for it at least.

If by then nothing happens, then it might as well not be haunted, I say.
>>
>>4073816
From the real-world lore, we have on Ghosts and Haunted places we know a few things: the longer you stay in a haunted place the more aware Ghosts will become of you and them to you, By touching items that the Ghosts have a strong link with you are shooting off a flair saying LOOK AT ME I'M HERE, Depending on how long the Ghost has been bound for they are going probably lash out violently.

all in all, if you are going to fuck about in a haunted place do it quickly, respectfully, and most importantly don't take anything that screams I AM HAUNTED AS HELL.
>>
>>4073826
I kinda understand your point, but haven't we already handled the box beyond no recovery by examining it's contents, taking said contents to ourselves and are about to turn on the music?
Heck, if no ghost appears by that point then there ain't one. Case closed.
>>
>>4073849
The point of no return is taking the Box from this location, mark my words. If I am not mistaken we found the gold near the box not in it. Even if we don't see anything I bet Lumi will, Animals are more sensitive to Ghosts after all. Also, remember this is the ghost of a human we are dealing with not a Ghost-type. If some dipstick with his little dog came into your Haunt and started messing with your reality anchor what would you do to them?
>>
>>4073862
>you find a small music box in a hidden drawer compartment.

Out of curiosity, you begin to turn the metal part of the music box, to hear what it sounds like.

One Rotation

You feel a large gust of wind, come through as the front entrance of the door opens, and then closes. Several broken materials that are lying around are swept to the side.

Two Rotations

Gong Gong


You look over to your right, there is a grandfather clock marking that its midnight. Though right now it’s barely 4:00 PM. You can't recall seeing the grandfather clock when you first walked in though. Looking over at Lumi she looks tense about the current situation.

Three Rotations

“Umbreon!” Lumi hisses taking a defensive stance towards the large staircase. Looking over you nearly piss your pants as you see something, not of this world descending towards you. Definitely not a Pokemon, though its appearance resembles a human, but also something else. A girl whose skin is whiter than that of an albino. Her long black hair is a scraggly mess, each step she takes leaves behind a white footprint, yet it doesn’t make a sound. Her eyes sockets are a pitch black as well, though if you look closely you could almost swear, they are moving in circular motions. Without a command, Lumi fires a shadow ball at the ghostly girl…It phases through the aberration hitting the wall on the other side. Every instinct and nerve in your body tells you to run, and get out of the house, but your legs are unable to move. Are you frozen in fear? Looking down you notice that you haven’t peed yourself yet. So it couldn't be that. You try to let go of the metal part of the box, but find your hand stuck to it. As if a strange force is holding you down. You can remove your other hand off the main part of the box though. Lumi seeing that you can’t move; moves closer to you hissing once more, as the girl is now directly in front of you.

…I think…You will be the one.

Without control of your body, you turn the metal part of the box a fourth rotation. White and green energy spreads around you and Lumi. You can hear a song as your vision fades to black.

‘The strain of time tore us apart. It's not what we want, but it's where we are.’
‘Until it happens to you, you won’t know how it feels.’
‘I’ll go back just for you. I’ll do anything for you...’

I think you can do it. One chance.

>[1/2]

>>4073997
I know OP is still writing but let's not forget that ghosts can create illusions that have no real bearing, thus any attack phasing through the illusion. It's possible the real ghost type is nearby and watching us nearby.
Sure does look spooky though.
>>
>>4073997

“Dad, five more minutes…” you say till you feel something tackle the side of your face. You wake up with a jolt, seeing Lumi looking worried at your side. “Um-Um-Breoon,” she says. Looking at your Pokewatch you see that the time is 9:00 PM you can hear a large thunderstorm outside. The rain pounds against the nearby window. You are very late for dinner. Looking around your surroundings you notice that you’re in a small well-lit room. On the nightstand, there is a small mug of tea along with a note.

‘I noticed you were collapsed outside of the refuge. I brought you inside. When you wake up look for the guy with red hair downstairs.’ Doing a quick scan of yourself you see that everything is still in place. You reach into your bag and pull out an empty Pokeball and nugget. The music box is nowhere to be found though. “Let's look around this room first before going downstairs…”

You search around the room for anything of interest. At first, you find nothing, but some miscellaneous clothing in the dresser. In the nightstand, you spot some papers, with red scribbles all over. Though you can make out a few sentences.

“I found it. The uncapturable Pokemon. I had to use my daughter as bait, but I have it now. Maybe…Maybe…

You pocket the strange papers, thinking about any pokemon that you’ve heard about in the past that would be considered ‘uncapturable’. The only one that comes to mind would be Abra and its pesky teleports. Checking your poke-watch you notice that there is no service, perhaps due to the storm. Your family is probably worried about you, though the current storm doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. “Let’s get out of here Lumi. There is someone who wants to see us downstairs supposedly. You step into the hallway, the lights on the wall are lined up neatly. The floor is clean and well kept. A nearby Meowth is sweeping the floor. It looks up to you and bows, before disappearing around the corner.

Nearing the staircase to the lower floor you immediately recognize the front entrance to the ‘trainer’s refuge.’ Something is wrong, even though everything seems right... The broken and tattered wooden floor is replaced with clean flooring as if it was just put in recently. The furniture is spotless devoid of any dust. You can hear the sounds of people speaking in a nearby room. Near the bottom of the steps is a young red-haired boy around your age. He's wearing a black cloak along with an amethyst pendant. He looks up at you and raises a hand.

“Yo! You woke up. I saw you collapsed outside of the refuge with your Umbreon. Thankfully one of the guys inside helped me lift you before this storm came in.”

Anyways what your name? What brings you to this part of the woods? We’re at least four days from any city.

This is fine. Let's pretend to be mostly oblivious and keep our guard up.

“Uhhh. My name is Virgil & this is my partner Lumi. You point towards Lumi who rubs your legs affectionately. I was training, with her when we stumbled upon this refuge. Thanks for helping us out, we were training pretty hard.” You say. The red-haired boy nods, “My name is Lance. I’m here on a…” Lance pauses for a moment and shakes his head. “I’m here to train as well. Hey Virgil, I’m feeling a little famished right now. The refuge is low on food, but theirs a trainer in the kitchen selling some of his recently caught fish. Would you like to make a friendly wager? Do you want to have a battle? Loser buys the winner lunch? The refuge has a small arena we can use. I’ll heal your Pokemon back up after I beat you.” Lance says with a confident smirk. Your stomach rumbles, you skipped Mia’s Buneary shaped pancakes, and only ate a part of Pedro’s burrito.

I got a bad feeling about this.

Seeing Lance’s confident smirk and declaration of an already won battle wells something inside of you. A burning passion to battle? The will to do better, because Lumi is training to be better… “I’ll take you up on that offer.” You say trying to give your best confident smile. Though you take a moment to pause thinking about how Lance stopped his sentence just a moment ago before changing to it to something else. Rousing some suspicion from you about your current situation. "I’d like to ask for something else though, I’ll buy you lunch regardless of the outcome, but if I win you tell me the truth about what is really going on…"

Lance’s confident smirk turns into a more serious frown. He steps closer to you, looking you up and down, then looking at Lumi. She is running happily in circles around the two of you. “You don’t look like a Rocket to me. Even though your black clothing says otherwise". Lance steps away turning his back towards you and paces forward resting his hand on his chin. “Yes. I think this is…what Master told me about…” Lance says muttering to himself before turning back towards you dramatically his cloak flutters behind him as he does so. Since you want to change the terms of the deal, I will change my end as well. If you wish to know more about me. Beat me, show me your strength!

Lance takes you to a small arena. The area is wide open and is made of mostly dirt. Lance walks to the other side of the arena as you take your place at the opposite end. Lumi runs out to the middle of your side of the field. “This will be a one on one Pokémon battle! No Items! The winner is declared once the opponent’s Pokémon has given up, or fainted!” Lance declares loudly.

Lance takes out a gray spherical object, he twists a red knob at the top and holds the ball out flat. Energy comes out of the ball and a long, serpentine Pokemon appears. A Dragonair. It’s sky blue scales glimmer brightly against the light. A blue misty aura surrounds Lance’s Dragonair. A small storm cloud appears above the field, it begins to rain.“My Dragonair is a tier above others! Show me what you got Virgil!” Lance proclaims as he points at you.

Battle versus PKMN Trainer Lance BEGIN!

Battle Theme: https://youtu.be/4UAQVYe9z1c

I spent some time on the image, hope you like it.

I decided that we won't be using the Pastebin that I posted earlier. I spent a lot of time reviewing it but I felt uncomfortable about using it. We'll use what we did for the wild battles. But I'll declare what Lance's next move on you will be in the dialogue. Since this is Turn 1, Lance won't be saying his move.

Pick up to two moves a turn. Write-in's to describe what you want to do with them may receive a bonus.

Lumi's Moves:
Taunt
Shadowball
Confuse Ray
Charm
Quick Attack
[Simple attack Actions]
>>
>>4075746
I like the artwork for Virgil

>Confuse Ray
>Protect
>>
>>4075746
>lumi use quick attack and get in real close for a hit.
>and right after you hit and are in point blank range still, dont let up and use confuse ray Lumi!
>>
>>4075746
Lumi also knows Protect. My bad!
>>
>>4075746

Odds are this battle won't be decided by a single hit or even two. This might turn into a slug fest, and we might want to consider denying Dragonair/Lance the ability to power-up.

>Taunt to deny any stat boosts/complicated actions on their part.

That's how taunt works, right? Denies stat boosting from moves like D Dance and status inflictors from Thunderwave, which it gets, and will make the Dragonair more prone to be reckless and aggressive.

I don't recall seeing that kind of pokeball before, so this may be before the modern age of pokeballs, similar to the Apricot era.
If that's the case, then his pokeball may not have the same effect modern pokeballs do of making captured pokemon more complacent and obedient immediately upon capture, so we could maybe use that to our advantage when taunt takes effect. Dragon types are known to be prideful and hard to master, hence why Lance was so revered at his prime, having mastered even a few dragon types.

>Charm, it lowers the target's attack by 2 stages.

By level up, Dragonair learns mostly physical dragon moves, one which is Outrage.

Doesn't get access to focus blast either, so no fear of super effective moves of any kind.
While it could maybe learn some special moves through TMs like flamethrower and ice beam/thunder, Lumi's base SP.Def is higher than our Def, so lowering physical attack should be a top priority.

We do not have the fire power to burst down a pokemon like dragonair, but our defenses are higher than theirs, but their attack and sp attack are higher than ours.

Playing this safe should warrant some consideration at least, and Confuse ray is too finicky, we haven't properly landed it yet at all.

>Tell Lumi to keep on her toes, we're playing defensively.

A victory over Lance? That would be wonderful. Here's hoping!

Very nice research and explanation. Add +1 to rolls.

Rolled 2, 3 = 5 (2d10)

Alright, here goes nothing

(adding in the 1 per roll separately)
