Two Pokemon and An Egg

General rules:

There is a 10 minute voting period after each post. Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.

Write-ins for all votes are always welcome and encouraged. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.

Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as circumstances warrant.

Combat mechanics are up in the air. Suggestions are welcome. I want to try to move it a bit away from just having video game mechanics of trading blows.

Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture.

Pokemon:
Gobble (Munchlax)
Mace (Roggenrola)
Egg ???

Recently: You've come to the mountain edge of the first island with Laki, Keira, Valerie, Polu, and Hana. You helped fight off Slugma and Magcargo and contained them back into their rock enclosures. Mace has decided to join your team.

First for butts

second for titties

>That title

I'm intrigued.

So, let's quest.
>>
Get hyped for possible mystery box opening
>>
“How do you feel about the name Mace?”

Mace, your Roggenrola, nods assertively. He rolls around a few feet here and there energetically before trying to give Gobbs a high five. Gobbs just sort of lets it happen without caring one way or the other.

The group starts settling in for the night. The stars are bright and there’s a little fire going. Everyone loves the food you prepared.

Keira sits next to you on the log. The fire light is making her face paint really dance.

“So, where’s your egg from, anyways?” She gently reaches over to touch it.

The others all lean in to hear. Looks like they’ve all been a little curious about it.

“It’s from my grandpa’s daycare. He gave it to me.”

“Wow.” She gets right in your face and stares at you. There’s something unnerving about her innocent eyes behind that concealing paint. You still can’t tell if she’s wearing a tight shirt or not. She whips around and looks to Valerie. “Did your grandpa get you one too? Is it one of your traditions?”

Valerie shies away. “My grandpa gave me a yacht.”

There’s a round of audible surprise and awe

“It’s not a very big one! Really! Only four cabins!”

Her attempts to downplay backfire. Hana and Laki look especially impressed. You get the feeling that Hana knows the most about the outside world. She asks if it’s like the one in Giant Tentacruel Attack 4: The Smashening.

As they’re chatting, you notice that Gobble is taking food from Lillipup. Now Aron! He eats it in one bite before they have a chance to react.

Lillipup looks crushed. Aron looks ready to fight.

The others start noticing too. Valerie walks over and gives Gobble a quick bop on the head. Not enough to actually hurt him, but he does flinch from it. “Bad! Bad Pokemon! Don’t pick on Lillipup like that! She’s sensitive.”

Yeah, other people disciplining our Pokemon is a bit objectionable to me. Rest is just problem solving essentially.
>>
>>678735
Right I prefer Laki's fit hard set up. I also like her aggressive attitude.

You can like the other chick, I just don't see it.
>>
>>678735
She's super fit, I'm sure. Plus, the line about her eyes looking innocent behind her face paint evokes a nice mental picture. Plus, she's clearly interested in our learning more about us, or she wouldn't be getting so close and asking so many questions. We should take this opportunity to get to know each other better.

>>678740
All the above said, Laki is a strong second choice. Hana's growing on me too, but so far Keira and Laki are by far the best waifu material.
>>
>>678701
>>Hey! Don’t punish my Pokemon.

“She’s right, Gobble. It’s not okay to take things that don’t belong to you.”

Gobble looks up at you like you’re not making sense.

“He’s still hungry,” Keira says.

“Don’t need to be a priestess to figure that out,” Polu jokes. Gobble is already looking for more food.

You get up and start rummaging through your bag. You’ll be running out of food soon at this pace, but you still have your money your sister gave you. “I’ll just make some more. How’s that sound?”

Polu already has a handful of berries from his bag, and Valerie has a few poffins from her purse. “You sure, bro?”

“Yeah. It’s no big deal.”

The other two accept that. Their Pokemon do prefer your cooking to the other options, after all.

You put your pan over the fire and get to work. Using a campfire presents all sorts of new challenges compared to a stove. “Hey, Valerie?”

Valerie looks to you and cocks her head.

“Could you not discipline my Pokemon?”

She looks like she’s going to apologize, but changes her mind. “I didn’t really hurt him or anything.”

“Yeah, but that’s not the point. You-”

Laki gets up and puts you in a headlock. “He’s trying to say that it’s not your place. Aren’t you, Soft Hands?” She gives you a light nuggy. “But he’s too wussy to say it firmly.”

>No you’re not! Firmly tell Valerie to come to you first next time

>Laki’s going too far. Slip loose and put her in a headlock instead! Stand up for yourself

Breasts are living beings in symbiotic relationship attached to their hosts. It explains why they seem to have a mind of their own in the way they move and bounce.
Girls aren't failing to eat ice cream, they're sharing with their breasts, who absorb the nutrients through the skin.

[Looks like we have an even tie. Let's do a quick revote and eliminate all but the two most popular options. If this one results in a tie after 5 minutes, the next vote will act as a tiebreaker.

This is not a quote-only vote.]

You're not sure what to do. Your instincts tell you to appease Laki. You could apologize to her for not standing up for yourself. Yeah. That's a good idea.

But you also feel a faint surge of pride somewhere in your body. You want to prove you're not being a wuss. You want to tell Valerie firmly but politely not to discipline your Pokemon without your consent.

What kind of person are you?

Agreed. I know neither of the girls meant it that way, but they're both being a little inconsiderate. We're not in the wrong, and we should establish that we're not a wimp.

Like, all bullying fetishes aside, including my own, Laki isn't really taking us seriously, and that's uncool of her.

>>
>>678997
She's almost coming off as over protective I'll agree to that. Either way it can be ironed out with her in a discussion.

I think Valerie is out of line. If we hadn't of offered to correct the issue she'd have been in the right. But now she's over extending it into raising our pokemon for us.
>>

It was still only 3 votes to 14, nearly only 1/5 of the votes. It didn't deserve to be included.
>>
>>679016
Relax, it already happened and Gobble admitted to having a moment.
>>
>>679011
Yeah, definitely. Like I said, I don't think either of them meant to come across the way they did. Laki is being unintentionally condescending, and Valerie seems to genuinely have not realized that someone might take offense to what she just did. She's a sheltered rich girl, and that's the extent of it.
>>
Oh man her arms are firm but her chest is soft. This is so embarrassing.

Your eyes fall to Gobble and Mace. They’re just observing, seeing what you’re going to do.

You won’t let this be how it is. You’re not a wuss! “Valerie! Next time you have a problem, you come right to me first, okay? Gobble is my Pokemon and I’ll handle it!” You face goes from stern to apologetic about your tone to stern again.

Valerie looks surprised, but accepting. “Okay. Sure. I will.” You get the impression she doesn’t hear the word ‘no’ very often. She doesn’t seem like she has bad intentions. More sheltered than spoiled.

Laki loosens her grip, letting you get out. “I’m proud of you, Soft Hands. Maybe I can make a man of you yet.”
Valerie turns to Gobble. “Are we friends?”

Gobble considers the question for a second, looks at Lillipup, and nods. Valerie looks to you first before patting him on the head.

“Ah! The food!” You quickly turn it over, narrowly avoiding burning it.

The groups enjoys a little more time by the fire without major incident. You get to know everyone a little more. Polu picked up surfing because of a movie that was filmed here when he was little. Keira tells you that because the film studio left a mess, the islanders were stuck with a lot of cleaning up. Her tone is upbeat, but you sense she doesn’t like polluting one bit. Hana watched it seven times. She’s a fan of that director.

>>679144
Right. The assertive girl archetype appears to be Laki.

We've not really had as much interaction with Keira so she's more of a blank right now. I just find it odd to see, Oh boy I hope she acts like the previous person!

hey don't knock spam musubi/sushi till you try it, it's actually pretty good, specially if you cook the spam in teriyaki sauce before making it into a roll.

that said, it's probably popular because it was a commonly available food due to how portable it is, so they made things with it till they found something good. speaking of food popular foods on hawaii, saimin noodles are also pretty popular

I like the sound of this. Ideally we'll become really good friends with both of them, and in true pokemon fashion, we all become great people by the end and everything is super cool.

Then whomever we get with is already close to us, and whomever we don't is still our best friend.

You chat with Polu for a bit, and ask him about surfing. That movie being a big influence on him makes sense the more you talk.

“Oh, bro. It’s like nothing else in the world. When you get that perfect wave and you’re balancing without thinking...man.” He leans back. “You’ve got to come try it with me some time. I’ll even help you craft your first board.” He leans in closer. “And the girls, they love it, man. Almost as much as the guitar.”

“You play?”

“A little. I know a few chords, anyway. That’s okay because the main song from the movie only uses those ones.” He picks it up and prepares to strum.

“Nope.” Laki walks by and takes it out of his hands, gently setting it down. “You play that right now and nobody will get to sleep and Chatot will just hum it all the time.”

You and Polu talk more about the islands. Nothing big, but you get a better picture of it.

You sit down and talk to Hana, next. She’s gone back to being reserved again, You try to ask her about why she was trying to take the hit before, but she’s called away by her Togepi and apologetically avoids the question.

Keira plops down next to you. She doesn’t say anything at first. She just touches your hair cautiously. “Do you dye it?”

“No,” you scratch behind your head. “That’s just how I was born.” You adjust how you’re sitting. “So, do you see any legendary Pokemon around here?”

She cocks her head. “What do you mean, legendary?”

“You know, rare, really powerful Pokemon. They usually have some sort of mythology or and they’re really special.”

“Every Pokemon is special.” She laughs. “You’re strange.”

You change the subject and ask about her face paint instead.

“This? Oh right. You don’t have priestesses like us where you come from. That’s so sad...” She takes out a few bottles from her bag. “These are the paints I use for my face. They’re made from different plants around the island. The body paints are too, but those are more common because it doesn’t matter that they wash off in water.”

“So your face paint is water proof?”

She nods. “Of course! If it washes away, spirits might see my real face! A priestess's face is sacred.”

“So it disguises you from spirits?”

She nods again. “And people. They have spirits too. I’m a ghost, like a froslass or golett. Shhh.” She giggles. “But I’m a secondary for grass types too. I can do those rituals, but it’s not my focus.”

“So when you were talking to Mace earlier...”

definitely not knocking it, my roommates would kill me if I did. You can make a lot of sushi rolls with it, great for hiking too.

>She nods again. “And people. They have spirits too. I’m a ghost, like a froslass or golett. Shhh.” She giggles. “But I’m a secondary for grass types too. I can do those rituals, but it’s not my focus.”

Why do I get the feeling that she'll be the best bet for learning aura if we go that route?
>>
>>679360
Wait what do we look like?
>>
>>679360
“Your priestesses don’t do that?” She frowns. “I can’t understand all Pokemon, but you get a good idea. If you want to learn, you can practice with Chatot!” She laughs again and climbs over you, skirt and all, balances on her shoulders, and hops onto a tree branch. She comes down a few moments later in a quickly fashioned hammock made of vines. “These trees aren’t that common. I like to use them when I can.” She settles in and her limbs dangle freely as she sways back and forth in the warm night air.

“Wait, can I ask you about your rituals?”

She yawns. It reaches an adorably high pitch. “Tomorrow. Sleep now.”

It’s finally time to turn in.

Valerie has some sort of instant deluxe tent. Hana sets up a small modest tent, but Valerie insists she uses hers with her, and Hana is too polite to decline despite her shyness.

Polu sleeps on his board. Laki grabs some large leaves and curls up under those to make a blanket.

You don’t have a tent or even a sleeping bag, so you guess you’ll follow Laki’s lead. You grab some leaves and curl up. Gobble curls up with you, and Mace eventually follows.

You wake up in the morning to the sight of Keira sprinkling some water on the ground, followed by a little sand and some mumbling. She’s got different facepaint on today.

“So, are we heading back?”

“We could, but there’s some caves if we keep going up. We can follow those out to the beach eventually. It’ll take all day, but we might find some mushrooms or stones.”

Laki likes the sound of that. “Those mushrooms sell for a good price. Foodies love them.”

>Let’s go to the caves
>Let’s go back to town directly

We need to get our shit together and get some essentials.

Like a tent, sleeping bag, etc.

Home is the best bet for some of this.

We need a phone as well.

And if home isn't the place for that:
>Let’s go back to town directly
>>
>>679426
I can get behind having a Zubat again.
>>
>>679445

we need to study under Keira, everyone knows hammocks are better than tents anyway
>>
>>679447
If we're going for a bat I'd rather go for a (S)woobat; though honestly it's kind of early to be rushing towards a full team just yet.
>>
>>679468
Yeah, I think the way we are playing John now is that he doesn't care too much about catching Pokemon as he does making friends. Other people can have dibs and I wouldn't mind if a wild pokemon turned down an offer to come with us.
>>
>>679314
There were no survivors
>>
>>679447
Eh depends on what Pokemon are in the cave
We may get zubat rushed
We may meet something completely different
>>
>>679468
if we're getting another bat, we should get a Noibat

Swoobat are just worse versions of Zubat, without the good end evolution of a Crobat
>>
>>679501
Agreed on both counts. Noibat is a cute little guu, and Noivern is super cool.

That said, I agree with everyone saying that we should rush to a full team right now. There will be plenty of time for that later.
>>
>>679389
>Let’s go back to town directly
Supplies Do we have those?

Getting noibat might be a bit hard
But it would be cool

“Let’s go to the caves!” You say enthusiastically. Mace leaps up with you.

Laki smiles. “Well alright, then. Let’s do it.”

The group goes marching up the hill. Hana starts making incredible speed, notices she’s ahead of the group, and slows down. She helps Valerie up a steep section instead.

Keira seems to just hop up the rocks along the side, humming some sort of tune. Her Nincada climbs over her body.

“It’s okay to go in these caves, right?” Polu asks her.

“Yup! There’s no restrictions here. It’s only on blessed Eelilee and a few other secr-” she cups her mouth. “Yup! It’s fine here.”

Polu looks assured. His Aron follows beside him.

You finally arrive at the entrance. You don’t have much in the way of supplies, but it doesn’t look that bad in there.

Laki snaps some large dead branches she finds on the ground, Keira picks some foliage and fibers and pours a little oil on them, and Polu ties them together. They all do it like pros without needing to even consult on what the other is doing. Hana awkwardly stands to the side, fidgeting on where she might be able to help. She’s just not needed, though.

“There. Three torches. That’ll do.”

It takes a short bit to get them lit, but they manage and in you go.

“So what’s in here, besides mushrooms?” Valerie asks.

Polu leads with his torch. “Lots of stones and rare rocks in these caves. Sometimes fossils, too. We might get lucky and just find a shard, but that’s really rare.”

“We’d only find one if the island spirits want us to,” Keira corrects.”

“We’ll probably find a bunch of Tynamo. They’re everywhere in the caves. Zubat, too.”

“Those aren’t the only Pokemon in caves.”

“Yeah, but they’re the most common.”

The cave splits.

“And here we are. This way has the most stones. Mushrooms usually grow on that side And. going deeper this way might have some rarer Pokemon. That goes almost directly to the beach.

“I want those shrooms.” Laki says. “Still need that beer money.”

“Beer money! Been money!” Chatot yells directly next to Laki’s ear, causing her to flinch.

“They do sound like a delicacy.” Valerie agrees.

“But guys! Rare Pokemon!”

“We could find fossils.” Hana lights up. “Real fossils!”

“We can split up,” Keira offers. “That way we all find what we want.”

“I’ll go with team mushroom.”

“I wish that was the team we had here,” Laki puts her hands behind her head. It’s such a shame she’s still wearing that sarashi. She’d look a lot better with something else. Still, the flower in her hair looks nice.

“Neat!” Keira declares. She hums and wanders off off down the fossil path without so much as a torch.

“Wait for me, please!” Hana chases after her.

Polu grabs a torch and looks to Aron. “Looks like it’s just us down this way.”

You, Valerie, and Laki go down the mushroom path. Lillipup, Chatot, Gobble, and Mace all come with you, out of their balls. Chatot has warmed up a bit and flies between people’s shoulders.

“So. I understand you’re a professional athlete.” Valerie looks up to Laki.

“Was.” She corrects. “ I understand you’re richer than a small city.”

Valerie looks away. “I’d rather not be known for that.”

“Yeah.”

You look down to Gobble and Mace. They stroll along just fine now, but Gobble might not be the best to have out for collecting mushrooms. You could just have Mace help without, but Gobble might take that personally.

Kind of like this for keeping Gobble from going wild here; just tell him that the mushrooms can be turned into even more food later (assuming we sell them) or be made tastier when cooked.

For Valerie, ask her if she has any hopes regarding her journey around the islands.
>>
>>679860
>>Leave them both out
Just remind Gobble not to eat them. We can either sell them and get more food later, or cook them for tastier food.
>>
>>679860
>Leave them both out

Also:

Gobble, and Mace

Watch that Oxford comma.

It should only be used to clarify a meaning if there's a chance of something being misunderstood, like a list of paired items like this: 'black and white, red and blue, and diamond and pearl.'

In that instance, the comma would be necessary to make sure the paired items weren't confused.

That's about the only place you should use an Oxford comma though.

You ask Valerie about her hopes, dreams, and goals for her journey.

“Oh! Well thank you for asking.” She smiles. “I’d like to do coordinating to be honest. Well, everyone is supposed to go on a journey when they’re young. Find out what they want to do even if they say they already know. But I suppose if I had to be specific about why here, I’d say I chose here because my father talked so fondly about it. He used to say it was a great investment, vispum and all, but after awhile all he’d talk about was the local customs, the natural beauty, and how magical he found it.”

“Someone like your dad said that?” Laki raises an eyebrow. “Huh.”

“Is that a surprise?”

“Yes!” Laki leaps at a mushroom, ignoring the question. “Oh yeah. It’s a big one!” She takes off her windbreaker and uses it as a bag to hold mushrooms as she starts collecting.

Valerie cautiously and daintily picks one up, like she might find it gross to touch. She starts getting into it after doing it a few times though. She sees you struggling to hold the ones in your arms and lends you her wide brimmed hat. “You can use it as a basket. I have my bag.”

“Thanks!”

You lean down to Gobble. “Now remember, we can sell these to get way more food later. And I can prepare some of them so they taste better.”

Gobble sweats bullets as he collects mushrooms instead of eating them. Mace does as best a job he can with his limbs. Given that, he’s pretty impressive.

You start getting a good haul when Valerie finds something. “Look at this one!”

“Wait! Don’t!” Laki rushes over to push her away. She gets a faceload of powder for her troubles.

“Eeeeeeek!” Valerie screams and hides behind you as a group of mushroom pokemon start pouring out.

Laki stumbles back a few paces and nearly falls on you. “Oh. Oh this ishn’t gooooood.” She starts to doze off.

There’s five of them. This could be trouble.

Valerie has her Pokedex out. “Paras, the Mushroom Pokemon. Growing out of the bug's back are mushrooms called tochukaso. The mushrooms grow with the bug host.”

“Let’s fight!”

Valerie nods. “Okay. If you think that’s the best idea. Come on, Lillipup!”

The mushroom Pokemon start coming at you.

Mace starts doing his own thing, firing rocks in bursts. Rock Blast, you’re pretty sure. Gobble looks to you for what to do.

lets see if gob's can maintain metronome mastery.

>Tackle! Just keep them away as best you can
I think it's too risky to rely on metronome in a cave, hopefully he will help cover Mace.
>>
>>680229

Make sure we specify the mushrooms on the Paras. He might mistaken the ones we've been picking up

Not the best of moves given they probably have Effect Spore, but Metronome could potentially make things worse in our situation.

>>680232
Yeah, we should really try and get Gobble some non-randomized ranged attacks when we get the chance.
>>
>>680241
THATS NOT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
TELLING A MUNCHLAX TO RAT A MINDCONTROL SHROOM IS A BAD IDEA
>>680229
>metronome
>>
Fun fact: Effect Spore has a 30% chance of inflcting either paralysis, poison, or sleep on attacking Pokémon on contact.

Tackle is probably a bad tactic.

All options are bad options.
Tackling a mass of vstatus effecting bugs in a format where getting quadruple statused is a option is bad.
Eating mind control zombie fungus is probably bad.
Metronome has a 1/700 chance of casting Sunny Day.

Running, as an option, left the building already.

nah man, it'll be fine

on an unrelated note, which cast member looks the most like this?
>>
>>680304
I think Fling could work; sure it technically would be a one-shot but Munchlax naturally learns Recycle which can recover it. Plus with training I imagine we link the two to create some sort of boomerang throw.
>>
>>680338
if we can get him to learn some of the moves available to him in TM's, we could easily give him ranged moves
>>
>>680338
Giving pokemon metal balls to throw at other pokemon probably wouldn't be appreciated in most battles.
>>
>>680338
I...would not be opposed to this. That's actually really clever. I keep forgetting we can have more than four moves
>>
>>680341
You're thinking in game terms too much. TMs are reliable, but we can also train via practice and study. Bookworms get the best attacks.

>>680344
But completely tournament legal.
>>
>>680344
There's always Fire orbs and Poison barbs

Iron Ball is a legit item though.
>>
>>680341
Remember that Gobble has said non natural moves will be harder to learn.

>>680338
Honestly I think the issue is just luck of the draw. Slugma and Paras are probably two of the worst Pokemon to come into contact with.
>>
>>680353
most poison types would be bad too

especially croagunk, they seem like they would be native to the islands
>>
>>680361
Croagunk actually has no poison on get attacked ability. Most poison types actually don't.
>>
>>680361
If thats true, I want one

Toxicroak is awesome
>>
>>680352
I like Razor Fang/King's Crown as my flung item of choice; 100% Flinch rate. Shame unless we get a Trick Room user that's almost entirely useless on one of the slowest Pokemon in the game.
>>
>>680374
Speaking of trick room users, I want reuniclus to have a psychic type explosion called apoptosis so bad. So many cool cellular references were missed out on.

Seeing how well Rock Blast is doing, Valerie hatches a plan. “Lillipup, use Helping Hand!”

Two crawl forward. One hits Lillipup with Spore. Lillipup just sneezes and continues on.

“It must be his ability.” Valerie says. “Stay in there, Lillipup!”

The other hits with Fury Cutter. Lillipup yelps and jumps back. Then it growls.

Mace easily knocks one out. Another approaches from his side though.

“Tackle! Quick!”

Gobble leans forward and runs at his target. He crashes into it with his shoulder and knocks it back.

The Paras attacks back with a Poison Powder. Gobble’s been poisoned!

The fourth comes from behind and his Mace with Leech Life. He shrugs it off.

“Good job!”

Laki snores and rolls over on the cave floor. You actually feel relieved because she seems fine other than being asleep.

Huh. Where’s Chatot?

>Tackle again! Finish it off.

It’s pretty chaotic in here. Mace continues his blasting assault. His rocks take out another Paras.

“Lillipup! You use Tackle, too!”

“Tackle! Again!”

Lillipup tackles the nearest Paras and pushes it into a rock.

Gobble rushes the one he was fighting. The impact from his extra weight knocks it out and sends it back a few feet. Two mushrooms from it fall off. It shakes it’s head and stumbles away. It’s in no condition to fight any more.

“Way to go, Gobble!”

He grunts back.

“Alright! Pokeball, Go!” Valerie throws one at the Paras her Lillipup tackled. It’s absorbed in a brilliant flash of light. It bounces, wiggles, and wiggles agian.

While that’s happening, the remain Paras seem to be loosing their nerve. They’re not quite running away, but they’re not attacking any more, either.

Paras would be nice as a status inflicter, but the same could be said of a lot of other grass or bug types which I think we'd rather have.

As much as I think one of these guys could be cool, I think we'll get better grass and bug types down the line.

So, once we meet back up with Keira, we definitely need to get her to tell us how she can talk to pokemon, what everyone's spiritual type is, and what the deal with her face paint is. Why is it so bad if people or spirits see her real face? What sorts of spirits do we need to look out for? Keira is a prime source of cool lore.

I'd like to group up withat least Keira and Laki for the long term. The others are neat enough to be fun additions every once in a while, but a smaller group seems better.

Keira can be John's lore guide/eventual crush, and Laki can be our bro-tier big sister friend who teases up about our crush on Keira. We can learn about the region and the cool spiritual stuff, go ghost hunting and earn some shards, win badges alongside Laki, and be a great team.

And Gobble can eat all kinds of new and exciting foods along the way. He can plot his tour of the islands by remembering all the new delicious treats he tried in each place.

“Rah! Ah!” You pick up the torch to try to intimidate the remaining Paras. The lighting in the cave shifts drastically with each loud, heavy woosh. “Rah!” Your voice isn’t as fierce as you’d like it, but it gets a bit harsher when you remember that Gobble’s been poisoned. You’re almost entirely sure that Laki is just asleep, but if she isn’t...

“Rah!” You swing harder and move forward.

That seems to do it. They scatter off. A few Rock Blasts crack against the boulder they scurry over as they run.

Valerie sits down, relieved. “Are you okay, Lillipup?”

He barks.

She turns to you and Gobble, reaches in her purse. “Come here, Gobble. I’ll give you an antidote.” She pauses and faces in your direction. She covers her eyes from the bright torchlight. “If that’s alright.”

>You don’t have to ask to help my Pokemon, but thanks

“You don’t have to ask for that. But thanks.”

Valerie nods, happily making a mental note. She applies the antidote and Gobble looks instantly relieved. If you get into another fight with something tough, he might be still be in trouble, though.

“What do we do with Laki?” She checks your fallen comrade’s pulse. You don’t think she really knows why she’s doing it other than it just sort of being something you see on TV.

Laki reacts a little by pushing her head up to get petted before falling back into a deeper sleep.

“C-cute.” Val blushes. She debates if she should do it again and decides not to.

Mace, Lillipup, and Gobble gather your mushrooms back into a pile. You notice that the they’ve included the different coloured ones that fell off the Paras. Chatot flaps back and lands on it, treatig it like a bed. Guess it didn’t go far.

Valerie tries to lift Laki up, but she stumbles back and barely regains her balance enough to keep the older girl from getting a face full of cavern floor. She sets her down.

Let’s see. You could both probably carry her, but you couldn’t balance the mushrooms and would have to leave almost all of them behind. You might be able to manage it yourself while Valerie carries the mushrooms, but you’d be slow and very vulnerable and very tired. One of you could go for help while the other stays.

>>
>>682392
I know.

The good time will be that much better if you have dark times to contrast them. In a quest, or roleplaying in general, I like having significant events that make a player rethink his actions, his past, present and future, and his own convictions and personality.

It may be a bit soon, but all the more time to play with the situation.

I don't want it to happen as John obviously, but I want it to happen as a player in the meta sense.

“I’ll carry Laki. You and the others can take the mushrooms. How’s that sound?”

Valerie looks you up and down. “If you think you can manage.”

You manned up earlier, and you’ll do it again! You’re not a wuss! You lean down, put her arm over your shoulder like so, bend at the knee, and...up be go. You stumble a little but quickly manage to get a firm balance.

“Wow. You’re pretty strong.” Valerie lifts the upturned hat full of mushrooms. “But don’t tell Laki I said that.”

You look down at Gobble, who seems impressed. “Remember, we can turn those mushrooms into money for more food, and I can cook them too.”

Gobble nods. He looks at the mushrooms and sweats a little more before deciding that he’ll only use one hand for those and the other for the torch.

You and your group start walking. Yeah. This is going to work. You’re actually making good speed. Your upper body muscles are aching and you’re sweating, but if you shift her weight around you can manage.

You look at the cave walls as they glitter in the torchlight. Valerie looks too. It’s really pretty.

And then you stumble on a small rock. You lean a foot back to balance but you just don’t have the strength or coordination to pull it off. Not like this. You overcompensate and run forward down a hole.

You, Laki, and your egg go tumbling down. The last thing you see is Gobble, Valerie, Mace, and Lillipup fading from view as you slide down.

You wake up. You have no idea how long you’ve been out. You’re pinned and can’t see. You can sort of wiggle an arm. Everything is numb.

“Hello?” You nearly whisper

No answer. You shiver at the way it echoes in the cave you can’t see in. You push to move out but get nowhere.

Something hot breaths on your face. You freeze up.

It breathes again. Hot, warm, close to your face.

After a few moments, you start to wiggle your arm some more. You can slowly move it. You pull it up your body and already know what’s on you when you get most of the way up. It’s Laki. Laki and her hard then soft body. She’s still asleep.

You hope your egg is okay. You can’t even see. She’s covering your eyes.

You’re have under her and half somewhat under what you guess is a weirdly shaped stalagmite formation.

You wiggle around to get your arms loose. Nobody should have leg and abs that tight. And man, her sarashi must be holding a lot back.

Focus!

You really hope she doesn’t wake up and get the wrong idea. Your body is definitely acting the way any hotblooded young man’s body would right now. In your nervousness, you mentally joke to yourself that you might have better luck pushing her off with that instead.

You get your arms in position, tell yourself that this just happens to be the best angle (it is, but still) and push.

The angle makes it tricky, but after a slight adjustment you easily lift her up and gently push her over! Yes!

Laki partly wakes up and curls back on top of you. “Mhph. Warm.”

You laugh to yourself and push again. This time you’re angled with your back against the rock a bit more and you crack a long rock off as you push Laki aside. You get up quickly, panting, with a broken off stalactite in hand like a club.

And that’s when you see it. A Kabutops. Halfway between the two of you is your egg.

You thought they were extinct. That you could only find them with fossils. These islands must have a lot of secrets like this.

It looks at the egg again, then you and your rock club. You stare back.

It decides it’s not worth the risk of angering someone as strong as you and wanders off.

You exhale, then check the egg. The cave light is very faint, but your eyes are adjusting. The moss on the walls and ceiling seems to faintly glow. It vanishes any time there’s a sudden sound, though.

The egg seems fine. You can’t feel any new cracks. But you’re not sure. It wiggles, so that’s a great sign.

Laki rolls. She should hopefully be awake, soon.

You take a small inventory of the situation. You’ve got one empty Pokeball. You remember reading about survivalists being able to crack them open and use one of the thingies inside to start a fire, but you’re not really good with survival stuff or gadgets.

You’re starving and feeling weak. You might be able to gather some of those root plants to eat. They probably taste pretty bad, but they look like a root you’ve used in cooking before. At least, under this light.

Laki might be thirsty. You know you are. Maybe you should try to give her some water.

You sit down with your little egg and hold it gently in your lap. It’s cold shell makes you shiver, but you keep it there. If you’re cold, whatever’s in there must be freezing.

You wait, keeping a sharp eye out for anything else that might want to come near.

The egg cracks.

You swear you didn’t do it! What!

It cracks again. Oh! Oh wow! It’s hatching!

You try not to interfere. You just hold the egg in your lap and whisper encouragement to it.

Something moves behind you. You breath a sigh in relief as you see it’s Laki. “Ahhh” She yawns. “I don’t know what I slept on, but that was the best sleep of my-”

She blinks.

“Where are we?”

You briefly fill her in while holding your egg. Whatever’s in there is taking it’s time getting out. Laki seems to be taking it relatively well, but that might just be the fact that you’re both watching something magical happen together. She leans over your shoulder and watches.

Finally, a little Pokemon pushes all the way out.

Hey! You know this one! It’s Budew! But it’s colours look different than you remember.

It makes a cute noise and looks up at you and Laki.

Laki gently pets it. “I’ve never seen one of these before.”

They must not be on these islands. “Hey there.”

It snuggles against your hand.

You smile and laugh and play with it for a short while. Even Laki is having a good time. But that comes to an end when your stomachs start to growl.

Yes yes yes! He/she will be a masked ally of justice!
Should let it out immediately after the ball is used
>>
>>683146
>>Put it in a ball and get going down the cave path
Keep the baby mon safe until we're out of hostile territory. We can bond when there isn't a stealthy killing machine waiting to chew our faces off.
>>
>>683146
>leave it out of the ball and go down the cave path
We got best grass type
We got best design
We got smug face
It's either a shiny or its special
Happy days all around

Holy shit, those purple and black flowers on the evos are amazing.

>>683146
>See if you can find where you fell from and yell up it

>>683146
>Budew
Fuck yes, Roserade is fitting as fuck for our Herb. Also a really good mon in general.

>Leave it out of the ball and get going down the cave path
But make sure to catch it first, in case we need to retrieve it in a hurry. I assume we have to do that, right?

can budew clap their head arms?

my only regret is we probably wont catch a Tropius now, since we have a grass type
>>
>>683146
>Put it in a ball and get going down the cave path
Woot Pokeget!
>>
>>683203
Maybe one of our companions can get one
>>
>>683203
Maybe we can fly on one still. It wouldn't surprise me if islanders used them to travel between islands.

Eh, changing >>683164

Safety first

I'm okay with Budew, especially with unique flower colors.

its not the same

still love the little rosebud
>>
What are the other fashion mons? Gardevor? Skitty?
>>
Need spice based names for our new Shiney.
>>
>>683262
Rosemary
>>
>>683259
Neither of those are very fashionable, just girly. Leavanny is THE fashion Pokemon, but we have a grass type already so people might be hesitant to catch one.
>>
>>683262
Rosemary, of course.
Or Rosehip if it's a boy.
>>
>>683259
Froslass.
>>
Ehh, not the grass pokemon I'd have preferred, but whatever.
>>
How about Hemlock? It's a poison type too right?
>>
>>683271
Leavanny is ugly. Both of Gardevor's megas are awesomely fashionable.

>>683281
Frostlass is an excellent choice.
>>
We need a COOL Physical sweeper.
>>
>>683259
Gothitelle? well thats more a specific branch of fashion than fashion in general.
>>
>>683293
Or Foxglove.
>>
>>683298

It literally makes clothing.

This is subjective.

Minccino, Ninetales, Lilligant, Milotic, maybe even Volcarona and Winter Sawsbuck, off the top of my head.
>>
>>683317
Hey before he evolves he's adorable. It's a shame he becomes ugly.

>>683327
Gardevor's is a ballroom dress type set up. It's lovely. Gallade get's the styling cape.

holy shit Minccino is adorable especially after it evolves.
>>
So guys
While we have to wait
When we have our first training session how do you think we should take our Pokemon?
Gobble is kind of obvious cause snorlax and all
Mace and our new budew our kind of blank pages tho

And they both look terrible.
>>
>>683343

Shame we didn't get that instead.
>>
>>683343
Minccino would be an awesome addition
>>
>>683357
someone saved that pic....
I don't know how to feel.
>>
>>683351
FOr mace I liked the idea of him becoming this really fast rolling stone that some anon mentioned.

We need to see Budew personality and fighting style before making decisions.
>>
>>683351
Mace wants to go fast, so agility drills would be good
Budew can just practice his moves, he's a baby after all. We want to build up trust with him

should also keep him as our shouldermon for now, so he can photosynthesize
>>
>>683362
That's just an opinion.

Please stop baiting the other anons with it.
>>
>>683368
Best Rock fashion needs to be recorded.

>>683372
Mace can be a tricky / evasive fighter, sounds perfect.
>>
>>683300
Scyther maybe?
>>
>>683300
Mega Mawile

Pic makes me want a Sawsbuck.

It’s a really tough choice, but you decide to go with safety first.

“Sorry, girl. But I need to put you in a ball for now, okay?”

She looks up at you with some confusion, then Laki, then makes an agreeable noise. You tap it with your Pokeball.

Laki stretches. “So you really scared off a Kabutops?” She narrows her eyes. “You? You’re not just lying to impress me, are you?”

You laugh shyly. “Well, I think I got lucky.”

She playfully pushes your shoulder and smiles, like she thinks it's cute. “Whatever you say, Soft Hands.”

“No really! It happened!”

“Yeah huh.” She picks up your stalactite. “Feels weird.” She comments more to herself than you.

The two of you walk down the cave. You try to keep relatively quiet, since any sudden noises cause the glowing miss to blink out. You ponder a few names for your new Pokemon to keep your mind occupied from something other than watching Laki walk ahead of you. You ultimately think it’s best to not make any final decisions for a little while longer. You want to give her a name that suits her personality.

Laki mumbles something about hoping Chatot is okay, but it’s cut off when you reach a fork. The left part of the cave looks like it’s flooded a bit. Laki dives down, checks it out and comes back. She tells you that there are lots of air pockets and that this will eventually lead out to sea.

The right path looks like it goes upwards. You think you can faintly hear something up there, but the echoes make it hard to get a clear sound. Whatever it is, it doesn’t sound like people.

>Alright. Let’s go left
>We should go right
>We’ll split up. Whoever gets out can find help
>Something else
>>
>>683397
Good idea. Design-wise, Mawile is one of my favorites.
>>
>>683381
Yea
Mostly because I want roserade as our mascot Pokemon
It always looked like a smug motherfucker to me
>>
>>683401
>We should go right
>>
>>683401
>Alright. Let’s go left
We know the cave leads to the beach, this should be our fastest way back to our friends.
>>
>>683401
>We should go right
A Kabutops would go to the water and people are bound to be looking for us.
>>
>>683401

Mawile is really cool I would love one
