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. We'll be trying some new things out so I appreciate your patience as we fine tune it. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves, so beware of that timing. I also want to try a more varied turn system so you and your opponent can do a few things in a row more often. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Budew)Recently: You had a battle with Jane that you performed very well in, but ultimately lost. You got backstory on her beef with Laki. You made a Murkrow who trades things for other shiny things.
First for Mace
It's here, it's here, it's finally here!
>>794778>You made a Murkrow Sick butts
>>794812pfft. That Gardevoir is riot.
I want to protect Here's purity and innocence
You glance around the dark forest. It’s still spooky, but not nearly as bad with another human around. Your pokemon, though, seem more confused than ever about your fit, dark, musclebound friend and her slurring speech.“Shoft hams!” She puts an arm around you, pushing the side of your face into her chest. “What are yoooooouuuu doing all the way out here?” Her other hand plays your your hair.Oh jeez oh man! Oh jeez some more.>Ask where she last saw Valerie>Try to muscle your way out.>Tell her she’s drunk and she shouldn’t be so grabby>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober Laki>Something else[Apologies in advance. I'm not feeling super well so updates may be a bit slow and mistakes more frequent.]
>>794840>Ask where she last saw Valerie>Get away from that ledge
>>794840>Was looking to see if you and Valerie were okay.>Ask where she last saw Valerie>Try not to asphyxiate getting shoved into her chest
>>794840>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober Laki>Ask where she last saw ValerieDo we need to write in the question? Or will you choose something?
>>794837I salute your dedication to a losing battle Anon, truly you fight the good fight>>794840>Ask where she last saw Valerie>Tell her she’s drunk and she shouldn’t be so grabby
>>794840>Ask where she last saw Valerie
>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober Laki
>>794840>tell her she's drunk and shouldn't be so grabby>ask where she last saw valerie
>>794840>>Ask where she last saw Valerie>>Try to muscle your way out.>>Tell her she’s drunk and she shouldn’t be so grabby>>794841Would that I could but I'm on my phone right now
>>794840>>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober Laki
>>794840>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober Laki
>>794840>>Ask where she last saw Valerie>>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober Laki
>>794877>>794871>>794863>>794854I know lewds are cool and all but that probably isn't very important right knowUnless we ask about what went down with that shit with the fans and the quitting
>>794884I'm not entirely sure what it means that's why I asked gobble. If it's something funny/lewd I'm cool with that.If it's what went down with Jane I'm also fine with it.
>>794854[I'd prefer if people specified, but I can think up something if nobody offers anything]
>>794906If we do it I vote for what went down with Jane.
>>794840>Ask where she last saw Valerie>Ask her something that you couldn’t ask a sober LakiWhat were you and Valerie up to?
>>794916Maybe start with a silly question to test the waters and then move on to more serious stuff
>>794906If we do go down that route we should probably ask after we get the lead on where Valerie is and it should probably be the Jane question
>>794840>>Ask where she last saw Valerie>>Try to muscle your way out.
>>794926Maybe, but I'd rather not do it at all. We need to find Valerie.
>>794916Yeah, we just learned a bit about her past with Jane and it'd be fresh in our mind. Plus given she's drunk after losing to Jane its not hard to assume that it might be part of the problem.>>794926But yeah, start off with other stuff first (like where she last saw Valerie) before getting to that. Don't want her getting mad and storming off or anything like that.
Gobble pls. It's been too long. I need to see how this plays out.
>>794956Don't be like that.
The moment I sit down for this, I get told I need to go and do something somewhere an hour away.I don't even know.
>>795022Just stand up at your computer
You gulp. Both from Laki and how close you are to the ledge.“Come on.” You lean away from the ledge and she just sort of follows your lead. “Where did you last see Valerie?”Laki laughs. “I think.” She hiccups. “I think she got a bit scared.”You don’t know where exactly she’s walking you, but you keep pace just to avoid being dragged. “Scared of what? She she okay?”Laki laughs. “She’s fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine. You mainlanders. These woods are like, the shafest place there ish.” Laki tussles up your hair then points. “She’s somewhere that way. I think.”It didn’t feel so safe when that Pokemon attacked, but you guess it turned out okay. You can’t see her face that well in the dark, but even you can tell she’s completely wasted. It occurs to you that you can probably ask her anything right about now.“What’s your favorite colour?”“Hmmmm.” She looks at you as you both stumble forward. “Gold.”She seems receptive. What else are you going to ask?>Ask what she thinks about the others>Ask her side of what happened between her and Jane.>Ask if she has a boyfriend>Ask why she got drunk>Ask her opinion of you>Something else
>>795026Have to drive there and then it's manual labour.It's not happening.Shame, this looks like it was going to be good as well.
>>795041>>Ask what she thinks about the others>Ask if she has a boyfriend>Ask why she got drunk>Ask her opinion of you
>>795041>Ask her side of what happened between her and Jane.Worst comes to worst, she might sober up some.
>>795041>Ask why she got drunk>Ask her side of what happened between her and Jane.>Ask what she thinks about the others>Ask if she has a boyfriend>Ask her opinion of youIn that order.
>>795041>>Ask what she thinks about the others>>Ask if she has a boyfriend>>Ask why she got drunk>>Ask her opinion of you
>>795041>She she okay?Butt time.>Ask why she got drunkDon't ask too much, it feels wrong asking her questions she might not answer if she were sober. Abusing/exploiting our friendship while she's drunk.
>>795058>>795062>>795067You people are really asking alot of a hammered person to answer.
>>795041>Ask why she got drunk
>>795041All of it
>>795041>>Ask what she thinks about the others>>Ask her side of what happened between her and Jane.>Ask her opinion of you
>>795041>Ask her side of what happened between her and Jane
>>795041>Ask why she got drunkSeems like this would be best to start with, also should we start calling out for Valerie? Any of our pokemon have a good sense of smell?
>>795076Chatty drunks are a thing.
>>795093Gobble is on the case!
>>795096And their speech is still super slurred. Point taken though.
>>795041>Ask why she got drunk>Ask her opinion of you>Ask if she has a boyfriend
“So, umm. How come you got drunk?”“Drunk?” She gives you a funny look. “I’m not...ah yesh I am. You got me. You’re gooood.” She pokes your chest. “Shame reason why anyone does. It’s better than being shober.”“Is it because of what happened between you and Jane?”Laki kicks a rock. “Yeah! I thought I’d shut her up! She’s always on my case and I don’t even know why!”“Well, you two do have a history.” You look back briefly to make sure your Pokemon are following. They’re glued to your ankles.Laki yanks you back. “What hishtory? She’s been getting in my face since we met at the lab.”Laki doesn’t recognize Jane? That could explain a lot. Or maybe Jane made it up. Or something else. You decide to move to another subject though and ask her thoughts on everyone else.“Hm? Wellllll... Keira is nice. Most priestesses are weird, but friendly weird isn’t so bad. Kinda high energy though. That Polu is okay too I guess. Laid back. Doesn’t get in your face. A little obsessed with surfing but I can understand that.” She keeps playing with your hair. “Hana is too damn shy. And strong! It’s not fair!” She burps. “Wait. That’s mean. I take it back that’s super mean.” Laki spins you around. “I’m not a bad person. You don’t think I’m a bad person, right?”“N-no. I don’t think that.”Laki looks relieved. “Good. Becaushe Hana didn’t deserve any of what happened to her. I forgot why she was stronk.”You guess Laki is a bit all over the place. “What about-”“Valerie is scho damn hot!” Laki says. “Who has skin that smooth? Huh?” She grabs your hands. “Beside you. What do mainlanders do all day? Bathe in moisturizer?”You’re face to face with her again. You gulp. “Do you have a boyfriend?”Her face turns sour. “Why? You makin’ fun of me? I could get a boyfriend if I wanted! I just don’t want to!” She goes back to dragging you around. “Guys used to chase after me all the time, back before... before the games.” She harrumphs, then mumbles something about her confidence in making any potential boyfriend forget about those stupid games while making what you assume is some sort of weird salt shaker gesture. Must be a local cultural thing. It’s mesmerizing, though.“What do you think about me?”She stops walking. Her eyes change from being distant to smugly looking down at you like prey. “Now I get it. You blond little-”CRACK!Something splits a boulder nearby with an attack. You and your Pokemon nearly jump out of your skin. Laki grunts and squints her eyes at it.Wait, that’s a Pokemon! You’re pretty sure you know that one, too.>Send one of your Pokemon out to fight it>Wave to it and say hi>Hide! Laki! Get down!>Something else

“Hi.” You slowly and carefully approach.It looks over to you and takes on a fighting stance.“Woah! We don’t want any trouble.” You throw up your hands. It hesitates.A man walks out of the shadows. “It’s okay, Golurk. I believe them.” He walks over to you and looks you and Laki up and down. “What are you two doing out here so late?”Laki keeps as straight a face as she can. "Just going for a walk!"He looks at both of you. You can see he's paying attention to how tussled the hair is on both of your heads and sloppy Laki's clothes are right now. “I...see.”“I’m John,” you offer your hand to shake. The man looks at it for a second before shaking it. “And this is Laki.”“An odd pair.” He remarks. “I am Lepo. And this is Golurk. Tell me, have you seen anything suspicious in these woods?”“Like a crazy old man and his Ghost Pokemon cracking boulders in the middle of the night?”” Laki says. She doesn’t sound like she’s trying to be rude, just funny. But she’s not doing so well.“Yes.” He replies flatly. “I’ve been told there have been some...disturbances. Pokemon that don’t belong here, upsetting the balance of the area.” He squints at you. “What’s on your face?”>Ask if he’s seen a blond girl>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you>Tell him about your Murkrow trade>Nope. Nothing struck you as weird about this place>Something else
>>795559>Ask if he’s seen a blond girl>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you
>>795559>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you>Tell him about your Murkrow trade
>>795559I get the feeling we shouldn't answer his question.>Tell him about your Murkrow tradeIf we say nothing, he'll be suspicious,
>>795559>Ask if he’s seen a blond girl>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you>Tell him about your Murkrow trade
>>795559>>Ask if he’s seen a blond girl>>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you
>>795559>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you>Ask if he's seen a blond girlKeep our Murkrow buddy to ourselves; last thing we want is some guy getting ideas about hassling him.
>>795559>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect you>Ask if he’s seen a blond girl
>>795559>>Ask if he’s seen a blond girl>>Tell him that Keira painted it to protect youSnitches get stitches.
>>795559>“Yes.” He replies flatly. “I’ve been told there have been some...disturbances. Pokemon that don’t belong here, upsetting the balance of the area.” He squints at you. “What’s on your face?”Aw poo.
He walks you over to the path as you talk. There are street lamps here again.You lift your arm the way Keira showed you. “My friend Keira said this would protect me. She’s a priestess.”Laki bursts into a fit of giggling. The man just looks at you for a moment. “That,” his stoic face contorts just a little, “makes sense, in it’s own unique way. This is very typical of young Keira, I’ve been told.”“I didn’t even notice that before without the light.” Laki is cracking up. “That’s great!”You smile on the outside, but on the inside you’re not so sure anymore. “I don’t get it.”“There are many meowth in these woods.” He tells you. “Soon it will be time for the Festival of Giving.”“Festival of Giving?”He looks slightly annoyed that you have to ask. “Yes. Small children come and give gifts to the Meowth. They paint their faces and make a gesture to assure them that they understand them have good intentions.”“So it’s not a magical-”He glares at you.“Nevermind.” You fidget. He’s scary. “Sir.”He sighs. “My wife tells me I am not very ‘warm’ to strangers. Forgive me. It has been a frustrating night. I am no closer to understanding what is happening than when I started. Perhaps rest will clear my head.” He gives a brief bow before starting to walk away with his Golurk.“Wait! Have you seen a girl our age out here? She’s blonde, this tall, has a Lillipup and a purse.”“Yes. Down that way. She seemed preoccupied so I did not disturb her.”>Wave goodbye. Wish him luck>Tell him about Murkrow>Ask where he caught Golurk. They’re so cool>Something else
>>795758>>Wave goodbye. Wish him luck
>>795758>Wave goodbye. Wish him luck
>>795758>>Wave goodbye. Wish him luck>Wave goodbye. Wish him luck
>>795758>>Wave goodbye. Wish him luckHe's grumpy. I like him.
>>795758>Tell him about Murkrow>Ask where he caught Golurk. They’re so cool
>>795758>that they understand them>Wave goodbye. Wish him luck
>>795758>>Ask where he caught Golurk. They’re so cool>Wave goodbye. Wish him lucknot my first choice for ghosts, but damn are they great fighters
>>795758>Wave goodbye. Wish him luckKeep mum about our Murkrow dealer.
>>795758>>Wave goodbye. Wish him luckWe can find our own Golurk later
>>795758>wave goodbye wish him good luckWe just made a new friend Isn't very wise to sell him out
>>795758>>Wave goodbye. Wish him luckIf there are enough Meowth around to have a festival then Murkrow shouldn't be much of an issue I feel (outside of generally being seen as unlucky). They're supposed to have a rivalry where they rob one another anyway.
>>795758>Tell him about Murkrow
>>795758>Wave goodbye. Wish him luckThis makes our new murkrow friend even cooler. He saw we were representing the East Side meowths in his West Side hood, and even though he was suspicious at first, he saw the value of putting aside our differences for the greater good and the acquisition of shiny trinkets.It's a tale as old as time. It's a poetic and powerfully beautiful story about trust in the face of prejudice. We can all relate to judging books by their covers sometimes, but we can also relate to just wanting to steal a shiny bauble from some nerd we meet on the road. We can learn a lot from that shifty crow. Maybe there's a little murkrow un all of us.
>>795884That made me laugh harder than it should have.
>>795884I have no doubt that we'll get that murkrow later on
>>795758>assure them that they understand them have good intentions
>>795966Long hair version is better.
“Good luck!” You wave. That guy seems alright. You and Laki start walking in the direction he pointed.Laki picks up Bella and plays with her while you walk. She throws her up a few times and you try not to act nervous about it. You yawn. It’s getting late and it’s been a long day.“Laki? Laki?” You hear Valerie call out. “Sorry if I panicked. I thought about it and if it’s just a one time thing like you said, and nobody knows about it, then I guess a little experimenting couldn’t-” She freezes. “Oh. Herb. Hello.”“Hi.” You smile and blink.She plays with her hair and avoids eye contact.Laki grins from ear to ear as she puts her arms around both of you. “Let’sh go back.”The three of you and your Pokemon head back to the Pokemon center. It’s a pretty long walk, but you guess everyone is too tired to talk much.>You guys go ahead. You want to look for a Meowth!>Ask Valerie what she was talking about>Just go back and get some sleep>Something else
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking about
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutMm it's too good
>>795980>>You guys go ahead. You want to look for a Meowth!No cock blocking
>>795974I beg to differ>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutpreferably with Hana/Keira nearby
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutThere's no way Herb is dense enough not to get that.
>>795980>>Just go back and get some sleep
>>795980>>Ask Valerie what she was talking about
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutPerhaps they might know a food recipe we might want to try out. Even if it is a little experimental.
>>795990They don't have cocks we can't block.
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutIf it was experimenting with cooking, then you could definitely help her out with that.Obviously, that's the only type of "experimenting" she could be referring to :^)
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutThis can lead to something very good
>>796012Don't be dense anonShe could be experimenting with a new style of clothing too
>>795980>You guys go ahead,I'll go look for a meowthNew mon get?
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutGobble you better not take away my waifu by setting her up with another waifu.
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutIf you guys are doing science you should do it sober. Taking down accurate data is really important.
>>796019What if she was experimenting new battle techniques with her Pokemon?Geez anon you are so dense
>>796028It's way to early to start waifu fagging
>>796036Maybe a mix of all three?Are they getting ready for a pokemon beauty contest?
>>796036She wouldn't be embarassed about trying new techniques with her pokemon though.But screw up a dish badly enough, or wear something atrocious, and other people would never let you live it down.
>>796024>wanting another normal type>or downs Persian
>>796054That's a distinct possibility. We could help!
>>796045Anons have been doing it for awhile now. How many times to people post about Laki/Keira.You've also got one or two who say, "O-oh well hana is nice guys plz!"
>>796028It's okay. Just gotta lure one in, and the other will follow...
>>796059Well she needs someone else to judge!
>>796067>haremI can live with early waifu faggotryBut harem shit is were I draw the line
>>796082Not saying it'll be a full haremBut one time couldn't hurt, just like Valerie said...
>>796091I'm fine if it's a non canon lewd bin
>>796091>>796082>>796067Like Herb will have a choice.
>>796112You realize if anons decide to do something you don't like you're sol right?Not saying it'll happen. Just saying it's incredibly annoying to see one guy go, "NOW HEY I DON'T AGREE! THAT'S WHERE I DRAW THE LINE!"
>>796117>>796114I understand that shit getting annoying with the constant arguing and everyone reining their opinions in but there is a reason to not got haremIt spreads development of the relationship to far and makes it feel cheap, the reason the harem last time worked is because of the fact that we focused on Robin There's also the possibility of a shitstorm like last time where people drop the quest cause harem
>>795991Long hair version of that particular picture, I mean.>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking about
>>796082>implying we'd have the haremanon, Herb isn't the main character, he doesn't get the harem
>>795980>Ask Valerie what she was talking aboutHerb must go Maximum over dense.
>>796233I want everyone, including us, to be in Polu's harem. Or Jane's. Which seems more like a main character?
>>796260Polu is more like a relaxed sidekick
>>796260It's obviously going to be Laki's harem
>>796273I want to be in Laki's harem...
>>796273Well as it looks like she's already trying to get it started. So you could very well be right.
Gobble is kill
>>796260I second >>796273>>796274She's gone to abduct all the blonds.
“You know what a schtrong person does?” Laki lectures nobody in particular. “They know what they want, and they go for it!” Her hand grabs your chest for some reason. That tickles.Valerie squeaks, but you can’t see why with Laki in between you both.“What were you talking about before?”“Uhhm. Nothing. Don’t worry about it.” Her voice is high pitched. She must be yawning. You yawn too. Laki removes herself from the two of you as you enter the Pokemon center. They have bunks here that trainers can use. There are little privacy curtains for each one, but you can still talk through them.“I bet I can guess.” She must be talking about a contest routine. She was talking about that earlier. “Don’t worry. I don’t want to steal your thunder. We can work together.”Laki and Valerie look at you. Valerie is shocked and Laki looks impressed. Valerie makes a motion to keep your voice down. Everyone is sleeping and you don’t want to wake them up. Good call.“I’m just saying. We can share. I have a lot of good ideas for moves and accessories and costumes.”Laki puts a hand on her hip while Valerie sits there, stunned at your generous offer to help. “Wow, Soft hands. You are a secret badass afterall, aren’t you?” She grins. “And you go after what you want, huh?”“I can’t believe I’m hearing this.” Valerie finally says. “I’ve never...not with a boy, or a girl...I just, do you know what you’re proposing? I’ve thought about something like that, sure, but not for my first time. Herb, I had no idea you were so forward.”Laki sits back on her bed with a knowing smile. “Oh, this is just delicious.”Something is bugging you about her reaction. It’s not that big of a deal, is it? Is she talking about something else. Oh! You idiot! She was probably talking about cooking! Contest people are all about pokemon nutrition like poffins. Don’t look dumb. Just pretend that you were talking about that the whole time, too. “I don’t want to intrude. It’s just that I have a lot of experience with this sort of thing. Lots of oils that could help, too.”“Please!” Valerie looks worried. “Keep your voice down. I’m as open as the next girl but people could hear us!”Laki is holding back her laughter.“Sorry.” You lower your voice. “If you’re nervous, I could just watch for now and offer pointers. It’s all about the timing.” Poffins can get really finicky if heated too long or not long enough. “Don’t worry. I won’t just leave you to clean everything up after. I know how sticky it can get.”(continued)
>>795980>You guys go ahead. You want to look for a Meowth!In other words, we need to find that Murkrow.As to nicknames, I vote Pickle-Pee.
>>796368Our unlucky quality is comedy gold.My only regret is hana isn't here to see this.
>>796368meanwhile Hana is awake and hearing all of this while her brain melts
>>796377Hanna is currently overheating behind a curtain.
>>796368I had to switch windows to keep from spitting food everywhere laughing.One dialogue, two conversations.
>>796368Oh, Herb. I'm dying here.
>>796368If only I had a my sides are in orbit image...Jesus, this is too good.
>>796368“I’ve gotta shay, he sounds really considerate. You couldn’t ask for a better teacher.” Laki gives two quick raises of her eyebrow to Valerie. You ignore it. It’s probably just Laki still being drunk and weird. “I know” she hiccups “I know it shounds crazy, but isn’t a journey all about doing new things and exploring? That’s the crap they were telling me, anyway.”Valerie holds a hand to her chest.“I suppose. It just lacks an element of romance, though, doesn’t it? No offense.”“Romance? Are you going for a theme with a lot of hearts? I know a great way to draw on poffins with this quick and easy homemade icing.”Valerie’s face goes blank. She blinks. “What.”“Icing. For the poffins.” You guys are still talking about that, right?”“Laki...” Valerie turns to the older girl. Laki is already passed out in her little bunk, muttering something about a golden combo. “Excuse me. I need to die now.” Valerie quickly closes her bunk so you can’t see her anymore.There's a long silence. You don't know what you did.“Herb?”“Yes?”“...Nevermind.” Her voice is flat and empty. “Go to sleep.”You hope you didn’t offend her. You decide to just keep your mouth shut and catch some shut-eye before tomorrow’s meeting with the professor. You hear Hana apologize as she stubs something when rushing to the bathroom before you fall asleep.You wake up the next day surprisingly early. There’s some time before your meeting.>Head there anyway.>Do a quick training session with a Pokemon>Take a walk down to the docks>Relax and read. Pokecenters have lots of useful information>Something else
>>796393>>Relax and read. Pokecenters have lots of useful information

>>796393Valerie made this conversation.I imagine Hana was probably red as a tomato listening as well.If she doesn't at some point try asking Herb out, I'll be surprise.His density and her lewdness would make for a great read.
>>796393>Relax and read. Pokecenters have lots of useful information.Reading about the island would be the best way to keep from getting caught off guard by unexpected things we find in the future.Also, a shower if we have time.

You do your best to enjoy the breakfast they serve, then grab a quick shower. You’re careful to clean Mace, but Gobble and Bella seem fine on their own. Bella likes the water and Gobble only tries eating the soap once before learning his lesson.You give a quick good morning to the girls as pull up with some free reading material. Laki is nursing a coffee and looks terrible. Valerie has her head buried in a paper. Hana looks tired but very happy.You read up a bit about the area. There’s also a trainer’s tips section that refreshes you on a few things. Nothing huge, but you never know when the smallest amount of information could be helpful. These little things add up. You get some more background information about Murkrows and Meowths. There's a rivalry there. They fight over shiny objects. Murkrow aren't usually on this island at all. They do share other islands, though.You leave out the door to the professor’s. Keira volunteers to come with you. The two of you arrive just in time to see the professor running an experiment. “Hello there!”Professor Palm asks you to place Mace in a small tube. “It’s a safety precaution. It’s necessary to find out what’s going on.”Mace looks unsure about all of this.“He says he’s fine, and that he doesn’t need to be checked out.” Keira tells you. “He can prove it with a battle.”>Promise him that the professor just wants to help, and he won’t be hurt>Ask the professor to examine Mace without the tube machine, even if that means a less detailed diagnosis>Bribe him with fried noodles, his favorite.>Something else

>>796592>Bribe him with fried noodles, his favorite.man, Poor Herb. Val hates his cooking, obviously. She's just trying to protect his feelings, which is why she didn't want to cook with him
>>796592Also,>girls as pull up withKindly bestow us with buttocks.
>>796592>Promise him that the professor just wants to help, and he won’t be hurt
>>796680She looks melancholy. A fine butt.
>>796704All the Arthur grunts I've seen have been great. Don't know what it is, probably something about the uniform.
“Alright Mace. Just relax. This is a perfectly normal procedure. We’re just going to seal the tube, and increase the pressure. It shouldn’t feel any more uncomfortable than a slight pressing sensation like this.” He pushes down on Mace firmly but gently. “Then we’ll be able to read the exact output.”Mace looks to you. “I promise, the professor just wants to help. You don’t get hurt.” Bella and Gobble watch as you assure Mace. You lean close in the hopes that only Mace hears this next part. “I promise I’ll make you fried noodles after.”Mace hesitates for a moment, but trusts you and waddles in. The tube closes.“Now, just wait a moment and...there.” Professor Palm is watching a readout. You can see Mace inside the tube look around as the air pressurizes around him. He looks startled, but fine. “Mace, please give us a small demonstration.”Mace looks uncomfortable, but you urge him on with a gesture. He fires off a quick burst of energy and knocks himself backwards before quickly getting back up.“Interesting. How do you feel?”Mace makes a pose. He feels great.The professor messes with settings and dials and has Mace do it a few more times to varying degrees.“Yes, quite interesting.” He mutters to himself. “Oh, I’m sorry. We’ll get Mace out of there and I’ll explain exactly what’s going on.” He goes to turn the knob to depressurize the tube, but stops. Gobble bit it right off.You look to the readout on the screen. The pressure is increasing quickly.“Emergency shutdown!” The professor yells as he tries to get the digital display to respond. It seems frozen. “Damned installers. I knew they didn’t have any idea what they were doing..” He whacks the side of it.>Grab the fire axe, smash the tube glass>Try to manually open the tube. Pull it>Grab the fire axe, chop the wires behind the tube machine>Try to turn the dial without the knob. You just need a good grip>Something else
>>796731>>Try to turn the dial without the knob. You just need a good gripHave bella make pins, uses the pins to turn it.
>>796731>Grab the fire axe, smash the tube glassExpensive, but it's the best choice.

>>796731>>Grab the fire axe, smash the tube glassSorry Professor. But Pokemon come before expensive lab equipment. How else do you make money after all?
>>796731>Try to turn the dial without the knob. You just need a good grip
>>796731>>Grab the fire axe, chop the wires behind the tube machineThere's that bad luck.
>>796731>Grab the fire axe, chop the wires behind the tube machineI wonder if this will accidentally trigger him evolving.
so, next time we're surrounded by equipment, give Gobble something to chew on...

You try to work the dial without the knob. It’s slippery and nearly impossible to get a grip on. Precious seconds go by while you fiddle with it.Keira pitifully hits the glass with her hands, doing nothing. The professor is impatiently mashing buttons on the console. “Don’t panic. He’s a rock type and used to high pressures. We have time to figure this out.” He assures you and himselfMace thumps against the glass.“No! Don’t break that glass!” The professor yells.You use the bottom of your shirt to grip the dial and twist. You have to really put everything into it, but it works.“Good! Good. Steady now. Not too fast.” He carefully instructs. “Yes. Just. Like. That.” You all watch the number in the readout stabilize and start coming down. “Perfect. We’ll let that come down for a few minutes, then open it up.”There’s a huge sigh of relief. The pressure on everyone in the room goes down with the pressure in the tube. You walk over to the tube. Mace is looking up at you. You’ve got some explaining to do.[That’s it for now. We’ll pick it up early tomorrow. Sorry about the late start/slow speed. It’ll actually be early tomorrow and not Gobbletime(tm). Really!]
>>796844Thanks anyway gobble. Looks like we owe Mace a ton of noodles. And we need to teach Gobble not to eat everything he sees.
>>796844We're going to have to cook so many noodles.Thanks for running, Gobble. I had fun.
>>796844Thanks for running Gobble
>>796844Thanks for running.Any possibility Mace got a Defense\Special Defense increase from that experience, or would that have had to have lasted longer?
>>796844Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>796844Looks like we owe mace an apology.Loved Valerie in this one, thanks for running!
>>796844Thanks for running Gobble! You make election season bearable.

>>796885Great thread as always
Laki has been confirmed for best girl.
>>796963Eh, this endeared me more to Valerie than Laki. Laki's coming off as sort of a desperate mess these last few threads, especially when we take her past into consideration.Not that she's not a good character, because she is one. But getting plastered and trying to feel up and proposition anyone around - including teenagers, when she is physically an adult - is pretty skeevy. It's realistic for her situation, and it's good for speculative lewds, but it's far from a good character trait.She needs to get her shit together before she's anywhere near "best girl" material. Being good friends, John and the rest of the crew will probably help her out with that, but that's a process.
>>797582I can't think of a better person to get her on track than Herb. It'll be interesting to see.
>>797582>Laki is coming off as a sort of desperate messThat's what makes her such good fun.She has issues, which makes her interesting and relateable.Helping her work through them ought to make for an interesting sub-plot, no matter if it leads to romance or not.
>>797634>>797636Oh, I agree completely with both of you guys. I like Laki a lot. I just don't see her as good dating material. I see her as an interesting character who can grow into a good friend as long as John and the others help her along.
Brown sugar, how come you taste so good
>>797646It's one of the great facts of life. Here, enjoy some Keira butt.
>>797641same, alcoholism is never a good character trait. Hopefully, over time, we can get her to gain self confidence and learn how to deal with failure in a healthy wayI'm definitely enjoying how dense Herb is, its a great change from how lewd Kat was. >>797658that's a good Keira butt anon
The best part of >>796368 and >>796393 is that Laki conked out before realizing that we were talking about something entirely different.Now she thinks we're secretly a highly experienced super stud, and we don't know enough about what happened to correct her.
>>797981Same. Helping Laki is a good long term goal that I can see at least Valerie really getting on board with. And dense John is great. So was Kat, but having characters with dirty minds react to what he says is lots of fun.
I've been thinking about rereading Pokemon Quest, for some reason I really want to read when Kat confesses to Robin and then runs off
>>798023That wil only make thing more hilarious later.>>797981Agreed.
>>798023>implying she will remember anything more than fuzzy details.
>>798023I got the impression she had figured out what was going on, and was just egging us on for the fun of it. Holding back laugher, knowing smile, etc.Poor Valerie. I hope she knows we're just dense and doesn't think we were making fun of her.
>>797582but she isn't an adultshe's at most 17 and still underage which is why she was trying to hide her drunkness from Lepo
>>798133Nah, Laki's in her twenties.
>>798133she can buy alcohol legally, and Gobble has said the drinking age is 18 for most islandshe's also said she's a couple years older than the rest of the cast, and John is 15/16I'd put her at 19 or 20, but we don't really have exact numbers
>>798155a couple years older than Herb at 15 (which is what I see him has) would make her 17 and it was never said she acquired the alcohol legally and with the laid backness of the islanders in general I don't think it'd be very hard for her to get some without an ID.Also her whole general demeanor comes off as a teenager that thinks they are already an adult and has o'so many problems that these young kids would never understand. At least to me it does.So until we get an official age for everyone I'll stick with seeing her as 17.
>>798183I imagine them as 16 and 18, but maybe that's because I personally was nowhere near ready to start wandering the countryside at 15.
>>797641>Laki isn't waifu material, she's better as a friend.
>>798393its too early in the day for waifu wars anonwe can all agree best girl is Bella
[Getting settled in. Thread starting up soon.]
>>798717Ready to protect Mace's smile
>>798717Well I can't use my it's here image so...This going be good
>>798505Bella is second best, but she has patrician taste in best girl.
>>798773bad anon, no fighting over waifus until 5pm at least
>>798505Bella best daughtru and Laki best waifu
Frankly I think we should wait until thread #10 for the waifu wars to officially begin
>>798796The waifu wars have already begun, they're just cold.
>>798796I think we should wait until thread #130.
>>798794Keira best waifu and dealer crow best wingman.
>>798796agreedbut people are gonna try and push for their favorite, and the Laki fanboys are hereand now to scar all of you, if I have to have seen this pic, you do too
>>798794This man is a sage and a scholar.
The tube’s pressure finally comes down enough to open it up. After a check checkover, you’re assured he’s fine. His hearing might be a bit off for the day, but that should wear off quickly.Professor Palm looks furious. “I knew it.” He holds up wiring in the back. “They didn’t properly secure the safety disengagement unit.” He drops the cord. “I bet if I looked into it, those electricians wouldn’t even have proper certification. Nobody in this region takes these things seriously.” Strong words, coming from a native. “At least we have the recorded information. I can confirm exactly what’s going on.”You reach out to pet Mace. He accepts it, but doesn’t lean into it. Gobble watches without changing his face. Bella is less reserved, and looks visibly confused. You promised he wouldn’t be hurt.>Quietly explain that it was the professor’s fault for not checking it>You made a mistake and you’re sorry.

>>798814>You made a mistake and you’re sorry. Keep it simple.Let's not blame anyone else. We were the one who told Mace to stick it out.
>>798814>You made a mistake and you’re sorry. Keep it simple.
>>798814>>You made a mistake and you’re sorry. Keep it simple.
>>798829[Yeah. I'm still a wee bit out of it. Sorry]
>>798814>Try to explain that sometimes you can make all the right calls and still lose. They might not understand that now, but maybe in the long termWhat happened is entirely not our fault. Nobody could have predicted something would have broken.
>>798814>Made a mistake, sorry.

>>798814>Quietly explain that it was the professor's fault for not checking it>You made a mistake and you're sorry. Keep it simpleMost accidents could have been prevented if everyone else was paying proper attention. The professor messing up doesn't justify our failure to do due diligence on this matter, especially when he was so worried about it.
>>798814>>You made a mistake and you’re sorry. Keep it simple.>Point out the upside. Now the professor has information
“I made a mistake. I’m sorry.”He doesn’t seem entirely won over, but you can tell your simple sincerity means a lot. He’s still not happy with how things happened. The others don’t seem to blame you. You can see a slight realization in Bella’s eyes. From the battle with Jane to this; you’re not perfect. It seems vain and weird, but knowing that she thought of you as her perfect protector and role model and knowing she’ll never think that again, a part of you hurts. This must be how parents feel when their kids grow up.Keira puts a hand on your shoulder and smiles. Despite the large gap in culture and not even being able to see her face, you still feel like she understands. She isn’t judging either. That picks you right back upJohn, Mace. You have my sincere apologies. I’m going to call up the corporation and get them to send out someone from the mainland instead to look over everything.” The professor sliders his screen over. “Now, here are the readings.” He points to charts and things you can only vaguely follow. You were a decent student, but most of this is over your head. You do catch a few things here and there, though. He explains that Mace will continue to build up more energy. It’s fine for now, but he needs either evolve, or you need to get an item to contain it.“What about training him to release it?” You explain about your match with Jane and how Mace was able to dodge using the energy release to thrust away.The professor looks at you, then strokes his chin. “Well, a physical therapy approach might be possible, but I don’t think I’d feel comfortable recommending anything that hasn’t been clinically tested. I recommend you and Mace look into evolving.”>Maybe he’s right, Mace. You should reconsider evolving>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?>Thanks, but you want to try training him to use it>Something else
>>798973>>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?

>>798973>Thanks, but you want to try training him to use it>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?I'm sure with proper training, this can be used to excellent effect, but at the same time there's no sense in not procuring a restraint for if it doesn't pan out.
>>798990I support this.We can practice after we know Mace can handle smaller amounts of power. And we can start from 0% energy
>>798973>Thanks, but you want to try training him to use it>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?I wanna try the boost training, but it never hurts to have a fallback plan.

>>798973>>798990>>799011This is probably the best approach.
>>798973>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?>Thanks, but you want to try training him to use it>Explain to the professor that Mace has expressed that he doesn't want to evolve and you want to honor his request
>>799033There is no reason to not ask for where we can get one.
>>799022[Is this new?]
>>799046wasn't Bugsy a guy?
>>798973>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?I like the idea of using that to help him eventually learn to control it.Also, aww, Keira's really sweet.
>>799062If the ass is good, who cares?
>>798973>It seems vain and weird, but knowing that she thought of you as her perfect protector and role model and knowing she’ll never think that again, a part of you hurts.I'm sad now.
>>799115She can still look up to us, but now she knows nobody can be 100% perfect.
>>799133We'll get a string of other events that shatter poor herbs rep and eventually she asked to be traded away to Jane.
>>799190Never say that word on an anonymous imageboard, anon.It tempts us all to run with it.
>>799190We'll accidentally evolve Mace, he won't hate us, but he'll become the personification of everything he feared. Dull and lethargic. He'll lose his spark and won't care.
You look to Mace. He doesn’t want to evolve. You told him you were okay with that.“Thanks, Professor. But we want to try training to use it.” He raises a hand to talk, but you know what he’s going to say and keep going. “But while we’re learning, where can we get an item to help hold back the energy?” “Well, I suppose you could get a modified Macho Brace. Or a Machoke’s Belt if you can find one. It might be pricey, though.”“You can always get anything at the Take islands.”The professor looks uncomfortable at Keira’s suggestion. “Yes. I suppose. If you’re looking for second hand items that would be the place to go.” He turns to you. “I’ll ask around for more legitimate sources. In the meantime, I recommend learning Explosion and using it whenever things become a little too hard to control. The local Pokemart may have a few TMs that could make things easier. It may be costly, though.” He thinks. “I’ve heard the local gyms are now offering payouts to those that beat them. They’re trying to encourage a more mainland style training culture.>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.>Go look for work>Let’s start training now and worry about that later>Go to the local gym>Something else
>>799242>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.
>>799242>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.I want to git gud so badly.
>>799242>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.but then might as well just incase it isn't enough>>Go to the local gym
>>799242>>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.
>>799242>Find out what happened to that mushroom money it's been several threads like damn>Other: See if our crow dealer knows about something that can help
>>799233Gobble will begin to ACTUALLY overeat and won't be able to leave the house due to morbid obesity
>>799242>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.I want to train for the Gym, I'm seriously curious about the types for the gyms and elite four for the region
>>799280I'm thinking gyms here may be more themed. Like a weather gym or a gym with super heavy Pokemon for that sport Gobble was working on.
>>798973>Where can we get an item to hold back the energy?We need to find an everstone.
>>799287Even if it's like that I'm still curious and excited for it
>>799265Laki keeps drinking more and more to forget her shame, until one day she has to be hospitalized for alcohol poisoning.She adamantly refuses to admit she has a problem, and slowly grows bitter and aggressive as her friends try to convince her to stop.
>>799306Same. I wanna have some good ol fights to spice things up. Also battles are the catalyst for learning.
>>799242>In that case you’ll need money. Go find Valerie and Laki and find out what happened to the Mushroom money.Then, let's give the gym a go.
You pat your pockets. You don’t have a lot on you.Keira peers over. “What about those mushrooms from before?”“Oh right!” You remember Valerie and Laki sold them for you. “I almost forgot about that.”You and Keira head back to the Pokemon center. Valerie is teaching her Lillipup a little dance routine. She stops when she sees you.“Herb.” She sounds weird. “How was your visit to the professor? You explain what happened. Her awkwardness goes away for now. “That’s dreadful! Are you alright, Mace?”Mace does an adamant little pose.You ask about the mushroom money.“Oh! Oh my. I’m sorry, Herb. It completely slipped my mind. Laki asked me to give you your share.” She thinks. “I don’t quite remember how much it was.” She hands you a colossal wad of bills like it’s nothing. You know this has to be way more than possible. It seems like no big deal at all to her.>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimate>Take the money and thank her. This should cover a belt for sure. You can pay her back later.>Something else
>>799417>>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimate
>>799417>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimate
>>799417>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimate"I wouldn't want to take advantage of you"
>>799417>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimateWe need to get her to travel with us. It will solve all money problems like when we made the tv deal in the other quest.
>>799417>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimateShe clearly is embarrassed about how she took Herb's offer last night.Is it just me or is Herb the densest thing on the island?That's the second time he's had something like this go over his head.
>>799445Enjoy it while it lasts.We'll know exactly what we're saying later on and be fine with it.
>>799451I will protect his purity
>>799463>>799451I want Herb to not be dense but act like he was for fun.
>>799463I want to ask Jane on a date
>>799451Probably more that everyone else will realize we're as dense as a neutron star and just shrug it off.
>>799417>Take a fifth, that’s your best estimate"I don't remember gathering this big of a portion of them."
>>799440Is this why people want to waifu Valerie?
>>799536I have her as #2 because she is the most serious character of the group without going overboard. ]
>>799485I want Laki to ambush herb and take him on a date.>>799536I doubt it. I like her and Laki and with her it's more fun/innocent rich girl who's learn to have a good time with the peasants.Her naivete isn't blown out of proportion like it is with Keira.
>>799572I can't pick a specific girl right now, but Laki, Hana and Jane are my favorites currently
>>799536I want to waifu Valerie because she looks like the best candidate to me.>No mental issues>Interested in fashion and contests, but she doesn't seem to mind battling either>Fun to be around>Clearly open to what will be some great lewdbins
>>799485>"All part of your plan Herb? Well fine! I'm taking us out to dinner and paying for everything!"
>>799600>"Did I have a good time? Just wait for the next one, your going to have an excellent time!"It's cute
>>799610We do need to have a battle "date", but Herb just wanted to hang out and thinks since it was his idea he should be the one doing the heavy lifting.
I still cant tell these girls apart.Keira is the crazy priestessHana is Adam JensenWho was the rich chick?And what are the other two's main distinguishing character features even?This shit is fuck-off hard to remember without clear having a picture in my head. Previous quest had way easier distinguishable characters.
>>799583I like her a lot and Hana. That seems like a fun combination.
>>799620>Keira: Crazy Priestess>Hana: Darth Vader>Valerie: Paris Hilton>Laki: Brown skin muscle girl>Jane: Female Gary Oak>Polu: Dick Dale
>>799620You are just retarded brah. This is the equivalent of like thread 15.
>>799620>Who was the rich chick?Valerie.>And what are the other two's main distinguishing character features even?Laki is fit, drunk, lewd bully.Polu is surfbro.Jane is the bitch with persecutory delusions.
“There’s no way it’s that much.” You take a small amount.Valerie smiles and laughs. “I’m afraid father is right. I suppose I’m not so great with money after all. Thank you for being honest.”“I wouldn't want to take advantage of you."Her mouth keeps smiling but her eyes do not. “I just don’t get you, Herb. I really don’t.”You look at her, confused. “Did I do something wrong?”She just sighs and pats you on the shoulder as she walks away. “No. No you didn’t. You’re very sweet. Confusing, but sweet.”Does she mean that, or is that some sort of joke about poffins? You decide to let it go for now. You look at the money. You could maybe get the TM for Explosion, but you’d be broke again. You could maybe afford a Macho Brace, but you have no idea what sort of modifications it would need. You’re not even sure if this town has a lot of stuff. The thing you were reading this morning told you that Gwo Boss has everything the mainland has. But Keira tells you that Taki has everything for a price, too. Mostly second hand items, though.>Go buy the TM for Explosion>Don’t worry about it for now. Spend the day training>Go find the gym. Let’s do this!>Go buy a Macho Brace>Something else
>>799677>Go find the gym. Let’s do this!We can scout it out at least.
>>799677>Go buy a Macho Brace
>>799645Thanks bro>Laki>tfw your only defining feature is being a tanned muscleslutNow I'm wondering why I'm reading comments about liking Jane. These are masochists right? They have to be. This is 4chan after all.>>799677>ECKSUPUROOOOOOOOSION!
>>799677>Go buy the TM for ExplosionSoon Mace will be able to do surprise Dig Explosions it will be glorious
>>799677>>Go find the gym. Let’s do this!
>>799688Laki is also running away from the fact she choked at the first ever time her region was in the Olympics
>>799677>Go buy the TM for ExplosionThis is the priority. Maybe at some point we can teach Mace to make a super explosion using his stored energy.
>>799677>Go find the gym. Let’s do this!
>>799677>Go buy a Macho Braceand then>Go find the gym. Let’s do this!and then>Go buy the TM for Explosion
>>799706He's trying to get an angry reaction.
>>799717Forgive me as I have sinned
>>799724>>799703meant to link to this guy. My bad.
>>799731Well I'm not angry at waifu opinions.
>>799724>>799731How about I decide for myself what my intentions are, eh?Reasons for being a slut don't change being a slut. She's too cheap and easy to be interesting.
>>799677>>Go buy a Macho Brace>>799688Funny thing about reducing characters to easily memorable traits? It reduces character. Of course you're going to miss stuff.
>>799745That is just rude.
[Looks like I did a bit of vote splitting. My bad. So we'll go to the gym, but first, let's figure out if Herb will blow his money on a Macho Brace, or the TM for Explosion.Since we have IDs, we won't worry about quote only. It's 5 minutes of voting time, though]>Explosion>Macho Brace
>>799688She is super competitive, like about everything. She's also super paranoid and thinks everyone's out to get her. She thinks Herb is this masterminded and manipulated everyone to hate her. I just want to get through to her she seems kind of lost and I feel she is even denser than Herb
>>799677>Go find the gym. Let’s do this!Cue 'The Touch'.
>>799677>Go buy the TM for ExplosionMost useful option I think
>>799755>ExplosionMight as well.Doctor's orders and such.
>>799755>NeitherBut if we have to choose>Macho Brace
>>799755>go buy the TM for ExplosionI still bet that Murkrow has an everstone >>799688A lot of people suspect that Jane's had a shitty life to become so messed up, and so they want to try to get through to her.Some of the people trying to befriend her think she might be a good catch if she manages to work through all her mental baggage.
>>799784Well I think she also triggers people like Violet did in the last run.I don't blame them.
>>799756Super competitive or paranoid people are so annoying to deal with. This would only be fun if at the end we go full mastermind and do troll her but Herb really is as dense as Iridium, so that would be out of character.Other than her and Laki, the other girls are actually pretty good and I wouldn't mind any of them ending up being the waifu.>>799784I know what you're saying but experience learns that people like that are not worth the effort because that mental baggage will forever drag them down and everyone around them even if they mostly get over it for most parts of a day which is the best you can hope for. I avoid girls like that like the plague from now on.
>>799795The Violet lewdbins were my favorite ones
>>799800This guy knows what's up.
>>799800>Other than her and Laki>Laki Nigga please
>>799858Where's the lie, though?
>>799800Were you born with such shit taste, or did you acquire it over time?
>>799870>wanting to date the alcoholic
>>799784>she might be a good catch if she manages to work through all her mental baggage.Actually yeah, her route seems to be the hardest one to achieve, so it should compensate for that in some way.
>>799870>so desperate to get laid he thinks sluts are good taste
>>799892>not wanting to be her antidrug>>799898>slut>>799897Robin wasn't the hardest and she was totally better than anything for the other possible people
Can't we all agree that Hana is best girl and make peace?
>>799897I like her because if we can get her I feel she would be a very dedicated and earnest waifu. Then again I'll also support Laki or Hana but I think Jane doesn't have as many supporters as the others
>>799904>not wanting to have a life of your own Im sorry, I seem to have forgotten where I am for a second.
>>799922Laki seems to be a functional person. She doesn't drink all the time.>>799919I wanna protect her more than lewd her. She does that enough on her own.
>>799904>not wanting to be her antidrugYou've never tried to "fix" a girl by just being loving enough, have you? It doesn't end well.
[Slight delay. Sorry. Still alive. Computer pooped itself.]
>>799930Well I don't intend to find out how deep the fuckin rabbit hole goes. But I'm fairly sure we ain't seen shit yet.
>>799930yeah, only when something mildly bad happenslike losing a simple pokemon battlethat's a recipe for a liver transplant in 10 yearsMeanwhile, other girls aren't suicidal and want to live life to the fullest.
>>799904But we didn't have any other candidate until Clair appeared, and she got annexed to our harem anyway. This time we have a choice between a bunch of normal candidates and then there's the bitchy rival who we don't even meet frequently. I'm a Valeriefag, but I wouldn't mind getting the Jane route out of pure curiosity.
>>799933>>799940>>799943Well we are gonna help her with her issues anyways.>>799945Vance was one before Jane showed up, but nobody was interested in him. I get your point though.
>>799933Amen, brother. It seemed like such a good idea at the time.
>>799960Not everyone is that far gone. Also this is a fictional story for "fun"
>>799956We ain't helping shit. There is no helping such people. It literally cannot be done. This is not a matter of wanting to or not. All you can do is make matters worse, or alternatively, completely break them and turn them into something they're not. In the absolute best case you delay the inevitable. >>799975Well then get it through your thick skull that girls like these will never be fun
>>799956speaking from experience, someone that drinks like Laki is unlikely to stop unless they hit rock bottom. At that point, I'm all for helping her pull herself out of that hole, but attempting a relationship with alcoholics is never good for either party
>character gets drunk once to our knowledge>immediately an alcoholic
“Alright. First thing we’re going to do is get a Macho Brace.”Mace nods. He’s keeping a good attitude.“Then after that, let’s go check out that gym.”Keira takes out her Tropius and hops on. “Sounds fun! Let’s go!”She trots alongside as you walk there. She hands Gobble a banana that he’s reaching for as you travel. The two of you find a local accessory store and get the Macho Brace.You secure it to Mace. “How does that feel?”He waddles along. His speed is down a lot.“He says he can get used to it.” Keira tells you.Mace nods and puts on a tough facade.Bella has been watching you closely lately. It’s like she sees you in a whole new light. Not a bad one, just different. You pat Mace on the head.“First thing’s first. Let’s get some food in everyone.”You make sure to get Mace some extra noodles while he adjusts to his Macho Brace. He’s getting a little better with it. Gobble is getting a healthy appetite. Bella doesn’t seem to need much at all, but she’s growing and you want to make sure she’s not missing anything essential. You and Keira enjoy some too. Nincada is fine with the very small amount Keira gives it.With everyone fed and happy, it’s time to check out the gym. You find it without much trouble. Before you go in though, a trainer stops you. He looks like a mainlander, too.“Woah. Slow down there. You’re a new trainer, right?”“Yeah! I haven’t been to a gym yet.”He stays in your way. “And you’re coming to this gym? Sorry buddy. I don’t think you’re ready. You and your girlfriend should go get some more experience, or you’re in for a shock.“That’s not fair. Herb’s battled before. He’s really good!” Keira stands up for you.“Is that so? Maybe you want to battle me before taking on the Electric Storm.”>Sure. You’ll battle him>You’re just here to watch>That’s okay. You’ll take on the gym and see how it goes.>Maybe he’s right. You should go train>Something else
>>799995>It literally cannot be doneAre you baiting, or just ignorant?There are people who do successfully recover from common forms of mental illness, even if the success rate is much lower than the proponents of mental care would have you think.Saying that it's a lost cause is ridiculously premature when we've barely even had contact with her. You're making a dramatic judgment based on sweeping assumptions about the mental health of somebody we know very little about.
>>800039>You’re just here to watch
>>800039>>Sure. You’ll battle him
>>800039>Sure. You’ll battle himSounds funAlso ask him about the weather. It doesn't look like it's going to rain anytime soon
>>800039Also getting that gym we skipped out of the way this time I see.
>>800039>You’re just here to watchMace needs to recover after what happened.
>>800039>sure. You'll battle himAhhhhhh fuckWe would steam rolled if it wasn't for the speed decrease
>>800039>Sure. You’ll battle himHe's right though I did want to train before coming to the gym, I trust our mons they got this
>>800039>Sure. You’ll battle himWe might want to listen to this guy and watch some other trainer challenge the gym first, though.
>>800039>>Sure. You’ll battle himTime to get some practice in! Also, this gym clearly specializes in electricity. Sounds like Bella's time to shine.
>>800039>Maybe he’s right. You should go trainWe should get Mace used to the Macho Brace before we do any battling.
>>800039Ask him about his team.If he has a team of heavy hitters, we probably want to consider taking his advice.On the other hand, if his team is still roughly within the same ballpark as our own, then he's probably just trying to look tough.
>>800039>Maybe he’s right. You should go trainBella Herbs a good guy! Really he is...
>>800039>Sure. You’ll battle him
>>800039>Sure. You'll battle him
>>800041It can be done, but it won't come from anyone but Laki. We can help her, but she's the one who has to work at it, and nothing we do, and no matter how much we bone her, will change that.
>>800127She got smashed one night. That doesn't make her an alcoholic. You've got issues anon.
>>800151People try incredibly hard to make any waifu other than the one the want to appear incredibly unattractive by any means, this is most evident against Laki. They feel threatened by her assumed popularity and will try anything to make her less likely to get picked. It's pretty sad tbqh
>>800127While it's not unreasonable to assume alcoholism is a possibility based off that one instance, it certainly is unreasonable to assume it must be the case based off a single event.
“Sure. I’ll battle you.”He brightens up a bit. “Alright! Just be warned though, I’m an expert when it comes to electric types.”He only looks a little older than you, but maybe that’s true. He seems really confident.“So this gym is really tough, huh?”“You bet! That’s why I’m the official assistant!” He glances over to Keira. “So what’s all that about. Is today a holiday or something?”She gives him a funny look. “How long have you been here?”“All summer.”“And you haven’t met anyone like me?” She sounds genuinely surprised.He shrugs.“What kind of Pokemon does the gym leader have?”He turns back to you. “I’ll tell you all about it, if you beat me! Let’s do a double battle with two Pokemon per side.”“And what if you win?”He points to your head. “I want those goggles. They look stylish!”>Sure!>Bet your Sitrus berries instead>Bet your Moon Stone>Change the format>Change the amount of Pokemon per side>Something else
>>800151>got plastered and started trying to feel up an underage girl because she lost the setting's equivalent of a quick game of tennisI mean, okay, but the fact that you can't recognize the signs of someone who has a problem doesn't mean I've got issues, friend.>>800172Oh, absolutely. I'm not saying she's definitely going to be portrayed that way in the future. It's just what makes the most sense given what we've seen of her so far, even setting this most recent event aside.Gobble isn't one to shy away from things like this, so I have no trouble believing that he'd make one of the main characters an alcoholic. Laki's showing a lot of signs of that sort of behavior, and it's not like Gobble would outright state it immediately, so there's a good chance that's what this is hinting at.
>>800203>Sure!>Bet your Sitrus berries instead
>>800203>Sure!>Bet your Sitrus berries insteadThese goggles are an important part of our style. We can't part with them!
>>800203>Bet your Sitrus berries instead
>>800203>>Bet your Sitrus berries insteadYou don't touch our goggles mother fucker
>>800203>>Bet your Sitrus berries instead
>>800203>Bet your Moon StoneNot my goggles, perish the thought!Who should we use I'm thinking Bella and Gobble, but maybe we need to give Mace a chance to shine
>>800151her Chatot's catchphrase is "beer money"she got drunk because she lost a fucking pokemon battle, against someone she pretty much doesn't know(reminder that she doesn't remember Jane). She was up for a drunken threeway with two underage kidsbut no, obviously there can be no flaws with mah waifu. She's perfect in every way
>>800203>Bet your sitrus berries insteadIsn't it a bit rude to try to bet for a stranger's piece of clothing?
>>800231I'm thinking Mace and Gobble. Mace can draw their attention while Gobble focuses up.>>800237Chill dude, she was hammered. Also parrots copy random words.
>>800203>>Sure!what do we get in return?I doubt he'll have any good clothing, but how much are our goggles worth?
>>800245he's betting the info on the gym leader
>>800237Because he said she was perfect? Nigga please
>>800170I like her too. But it's possible to like her without pretending she doesn't have a problem. The fact that people have been pointing out more of Laki's flaws than the other girls' - aside from Jane - is because so far she seems to genuinely have the most out of any of them. This is neither a bad nor a good thing. It just is. Gobble writes good characters, and she is one. Good does not equal flawless.Not everything is about your waifu wars. For all we know, Gobble could end up with her not being an alcoholic at all. Just because I think it would make the most sense given what we've seen doesn't mean it will happen.Just enjoy the ride and quit acting persecuted because people are pointing out flaws about the fictional girl you'd most like to have our fictional boy bump uglies with.
>>800259The two biggest whiners are the guys saying we shouldn't talk to her because they were in relationships with alcoholics before.
>>800251we can just google that, and guessing from his name, I'm betting its electric types>>800241“I hope you’re good at fighting. I want some beer money.” Literally the third thing she said to the birdshe's pretty obviously written to be very bad with losing and tries to take away her feelings by drinking.
>>800204Laki has extreme self esteem issues because she choked in the settings equivalent of the Olympic games high jump. If you knew how much that means to Athletes you could forgive her a little bit of drinking.>>800237Her flaws are some of the reason why I like her. And we don't know if she is an alcoholic either. We know she's gotten drunk all of one time. Just because you use the phrase 'beer money' doesn't mean your an alchoholic. And your an idiot if you think that underage kids aren't having sex.
>>800278>just google thatNigga what?
Jesus fuck that's gonna be a BIG shitstorm when we actually have to pick a waifu
>>800259>Just enjoy the ride and quit acting persecuted because people are pointing out flaws about the fictional girl you'd most like to have our fictional boy bump uglies with.You're implying I actually have emotional stakes in this. I don't, don't assume over the internet.
>>800293The trick is we never choose.
>all those amazing rolls when they didn't really matter>actually have something on the line>Bad Luck kicks in
>>800293eh, it will never be as bad as some of the shit I've seen on here.
>>800271I'm pretty sure no one said we shouldn't talk to her, and if they did, then they're idiots too.The bottom line of my post was for people to quit worrying about others' preferences in fictional women and stop getting so defensive when people point out interesting and (seemingly) apparent character flaws with the cast members.No one needs to white knight for these girls. They're not real. Someone pointing out a flaw in one of them is not a personal attack against you or your tastes.>>800294Your entire previous post was one big incorrect assumption about why people are saying Laki is acting like someone with a drinking problem. Glass houses, friend.
>>800278>Google >Pokemon I don't think you're in the right state of mind right now
>>800293In whereverthefuckweare waifu chooses you.
>>800297...we let the waifu fight over us?
>>800302I'm arguing because they were writing a character off because of their own lives, I'm fine with whatever girl makes sense at the time.
>>800286our pokedex has internet. The gym probably has a website. We can Pokegoogle it>>800271that's a great strawman anon. No one said we shouldn't talk with her. I said that she's probably an alcoholic based off what we've seen of her.
>>800302I was making a general assumption based on observed phenomena. It's pretty much the basics of hypothesizing and then later creating a theory. Arguably I was wrong in assuming you were doing it, apologies.
>>800319And those were just a few people; I was one of them. That's just my opinion, and you don't have to agree with it, but arguing about it and getting defensive about it is just stupid.That isn't just directed at you, by the way. That's for anyone who's taking waifu stuff seriously enough to get into an actual argument about it.>>800341I scientifically forgive you.
>Laki got drunk once, and is a few years older than us>CHILD MOLESTING ALCOHOLIC BITCH
>>800333>Gyms having websites in a region still adapting to the public worldAlso not you, but the one anon was having a real hate boner for her.>>800351We don't have much else to talk about while we wait. Also if I was actually mad about this I would have way more spelling errors.
>>800355Give it a few more threads she'll be 45 with three kids and a dependapatomus.
>>800351I academically appreciate it. Have a gym leader
>>800355Not with the anti laki party but nice strawman buddy
>>800370Valerie is a walking wad of cash.Hana is Robin 2.0Laki is a crippling alcoholicJane is puppy kicking HitlerKiera is a yappy, floating skull.
>>800364Considering there is a league, I would expect at least a simple one. They're not savages, and even 3rd world countries have internet in the modern world. And considering they have Dues Ex style prosthetics, this place isn't exactly a shithole
>>800378It's not a straw man>>800237It was said right there.
>>800385I think that Hana is a lot lewder than Robin
>>800391There is no website for that stuff I'm pretty sure. Even in a main region the gym leader had to send their kid to learn what the other gyms had going on.>>800413That is just their caricatures
>>800405>people are saying Laki has no flaws>Give a list of reasons I think she's an alcoholicApparently I accidently wrote "CHILD MOLESTING ALCOHOLIC BITCH"Have an apology butt for my typo
>>800443Nobody said she was flawless my dude.
>>800443No one said she had no flaws.
“Sure, but how about these instead?” You show him your berries.“Huh. Yeah. Okay. That works for me.”He walks a good distance away. There’s an open compacted sand parking lot here without any vehicles at the moment. The weather is pretty normal. A few clouds float way high up and the slight breeze from the ocean keeps it from being too hot.Keira adjusts her clearly braless tube top after she climbs up a concrete wall off to the side. She looks up “Go Herb!” Even with clothes, she’s still a bit distracting. You look to your opponent and you lock eyes. You both have a look of understanding. Yup. She’s not wearing a a bra. A lot gets by you, but not when it comes to clothes.You both put that aside and get ready to battle. He stops for a second and stands up straight though. “Wait. I’ll throw out first, since you have your Pokemon out and watching.” He gestures to the three Pokemon standing around your feet. “Go, Voltorb! Go Helioptile!” He throws out the two Pokemon and grins. “I hope you two are hungry for berries!”>Send Gobble and Belladonna>Send Gobble and Mace>Send Mace and Belladonna>Something else

>All these people not wanting a Rollout battle>>800480I figured this would be hit chance to get used to the belt in a fight
>>800458Is Mace still weak or hurt after what happened in the lab?If not>Send Gobble and Mace
>>800449>>800453>>800151>>800280>>800355nah man, its totally normal to get drunk after losing a game. Trying to say that is normal behavior is trying to erase the character flaws Gobble wrote because you have a boner
>>800494You're assuming she Gets drunk all the time. That is not confirmed, and you'd need a couple of drinks after getting schooled by someone who was already weakened up and still probably sweeped you.
>>800511Jane most likely used her unused pokemon. We fought 2 of her 3 pokemon, and Jane agreed to a single battle with Laki(I think). As much as people seem to think I hate Laki, I don't think she'd demand to fight against a half dead pokemon
>>800458>send gobble and Bella>>800511Well That is kind of a good excuse to get drunkThat either means she sucks as a trainer or herb is some sort of prodigy
>>8005271 on 1 is really heavily decided on type matchup.
>>800494Yes, that must be entirely why she got drunk. I'm sure it had nothing to do with anything her extremely antagonistic opponent with a strong dislike for her and an intimite knowledge of the worst moment of her life said or did. That would be crazy.
>>800536*intimate. I apparently can't type tonight.
>>800536Really depends on what Jane said to her, we don't have the full story, and doubt we'll get it from either character. Jane said that Laki ran off after she lost, which is the extent of our knowledge of the battle.I don't think Jane would've talked much in a fight with the person she hates the most. She wants to be the best, and wouldn't use shitty tactics like pissing off her opponent. Jane cares about winning "correctly" too much
>>800573>I don't think Jane would've talked much in a fight with the person she hates the most.I don't know, she hates us pretty highly (accusing us of turning everyone against her, which includes Laki) and was more than willing to call us losers, that we don't care about our Pokemon, us using underhanded tactics, us not training, us being unworthy, etc. etc.Presumably a lot of the same went on.
“Gobble, Belladonna, you’re up!”Gobble stops picking food out of his fur and gets moving. Bella runs to her position to fight and makes a cute but determined noise.“Alright!” Your opponent says. “Let’s do this!”The arena is flat packed sand. The weather is normal. There's very little cover here. Nobody seems to have any particular major advantage.Mace watches from the sidelines.>Have Gobble use Focus Punch while Bella covers>Have Bella use Stun Spore and Gobble Amnesia>Pin Missile and Metronome>Have them try Chip away and Worry Seed>Something else

>>800602>Have Bella use Stun Spore and Gobble AmnesiaVoltorb if we need to choose a target
>>800602>Have them try chip away and worry seedIf this works then we just got Bella's best move
>>800458>Send Gobble and MaceBitch, we ain't got time for your shit.
>>800602>Have Gobble use Focus Punch while Bella coversHelioptile is part normal type
>>800602Can we have Mace kick up some sand to lower accuracy and have Belladonna lace it with some Stun Spore?
>>800602>>Have Gobble use Focus Punch while Bella covers
>>800584She also got pissed when we interrupted a fight she was winning. She also thought Mace was gonna blow up when she said that we don't care about our pokemon. Had we failed that roll, we'd have let our pokemon hurt himself. She's not selfless, but she didn't attack when she though Mace was in danger, even when it would've meant an easy win.>>800602>Pin Missile and Metronomeif voltorb trys to use explosion, Gobble should try to throw it at Heliotile
>>800602uuh... are electric types immune to paralysis in thsi quest like they are in the recent games?
>>800602>>Have Bella use Stun Spore and Gobble Amnesia
>>800602>>Pin Missile and MetronomeElectric types can't be paralyzed, no stunspore abuse for us

89 and 97. Very good
>>800709[It does not]
>>800721Thank you for clearing that up.
So Bella crits and GObble FPs someone hard.
>>800743Hopefully helioptile as it's part normal
>>800747A solid FP on Helioptile might be the first 1hko in the two quest so far.
>>800753I'm probably forgetting an Oberon crit though.
>>800757Oberon was fucking insane but I don't think he OHTKd someone Who knows,maybe it was the nincada
>>800763That was what I was thinking.
>>800763He did one-shot the Nincada, but to my knowledge, no one else.
>>800753According to a calculator, we can 1HKO a Helioptile up to 11 levels higher than us.
>>800774While normally I would>calculators for the questThat is a pretty big gap of levels we could fuck up.
>>800780Yeah, too many unknowns to say for sure. Guaranteed to hurt, though.
>>800774Well we don't really use stats and level are kind of weird in this quest
>>800844We use stats, they are just on a scale instead of exact numbers I think.
You both yell out your attacks at the same time. This keeps either of you from hearing the other. “Gobble, Focus Punch. Bella, you cover him, okay?”Helioptile starts running forward. Bella keeps herself between it and Gobble. “They’re planning something! “Voltorb! Use Light Screen! Helioptile, hit it with Thunderbolt!”Voltorb sends up a Light Screen nearly instantly. That thing is fast!Bella manages to get in the way and take the Thunderbolt. She’s sent skidding back near Gobble. Gobble opens his eyes. He charges forward and punches Heloptile. The electric Pokemon goes flying back and almost hits the other trainer.“Helioptile!”It’s eyes spin as it lays against the wall.You look to Bella. She took a nasty hit, but thanks to her typing and good Special Defense, she’s okay. The force of knocking her back was worse than the actual damage. You meant for her to use a move to stop it, but she did a good job either way. “Good job, guys!”“Huh. You’re stronger than you look, I’ll give you that. But you’re in trouble. There’s no way either of you will be able to lay a hand on Voltorb. He’s just too fast! Show them, Voltorb!”The ball pokemon starts zooming around the battle area. Gobble is having a hard time keeping his eyes on him. It zooms right by before he can react and then comes around for another pass. Bella is still getting up.>Gobble, Metronome!>Have Gobble use Amnesia>Try to Tackle it. Maybe you can get lucky>Something else
>>800855>>Gobble, Metronome!>Bella Crits with a 97>slow to get up
>>800855>Gobble, Metronome!>>800858To be fair she didn't use an attack and lacks arms
>>800855>Gobble, Metronome!And have Bella spam Pin Missile in saturation fire if she's still good.
>>800855>gobble use metronome
>>800855>Gobble, Metronome!Let's see what we get.
>>800855>>Have Gobble use Amnesia
>>800855>>Gobble, Metronome!When in doubt throw the dice
>>800855>Gobble, Metronome!First 0hko of the quest
>>800858[Hmm. Actually you're kind of right. That's not so great for a 97.Sorry. That's my bad.]
>>800855Jesus, Gobble is a fucking monster. I love that little guy. I know it was Focus Punch on a weakness, but he's been nothing but great so far.>Have Gobble use AmnesiaThere's no guarantee we'll be able to hit something this quick. We need to play the long game for now. Hitting it is probably going to be up to Bella.
>>800855>Gobble, Metronome!Let's roll the dice. Also wouldn't be opposed to trying new moves like the option we had earlier in the fight for Chip Away, but the people have spoken at this point.
>>800902Mistake or not, that's a butt worthy of a 97.
>>800855>Have Gobble use Amnesia
>>800904Mace and Bella are fucking monsters tooMace is a fucking champ and rekt tons of shitBella tanked the strongest move of an evolved wild mom with barely any training and won

>>800942IT BEGINS, EXPLOSION INC
>>800942God fucking damn it Anon.
>>800942OhBad luck is finally here
>>800925Definitely. We've got a solid team going right now. Also, I'm glad we've stuck to just those three for the time being. Gobble is a pretty chill little guy, but Mace and Bella definitely need some special treatment in order to get them to reach their full potential, and I think having too many pokemon on our team this early could take away some of that.
>>800942wow that's bad
I knew I'd rolled poorly when my reply counter blew up. This hasn't happened since I rolled a 100 in hellborn.
>>800957We need a psychic, fairy or ghost in the team right now
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>800937I'm assuming 6 dice here.
>>800965We can hope that Bella bounces back from the 97 before.>>800967Well we didn't give Bella an order, but I like your gumption.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>800942Blarg
>>800965>This hasn't happened since I rolled a 100 in hellborn.YOU AGAIN!
>>800957I think we should limit ourselves to 6 mons this time so they have more room to develop The murkrow we meet earlier will round out our teams weakness to psychic types and fuck over fighting types a bit more
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>800937This ought to be interesting.
So what is the worst possible move? I feel like something worse than Explosion could happen, but I can't remember what.
>>800976Murkrow is our "black market" contact. We trade with him.
>>800988Depends If we meet no other flying type that isn't a dick and we develop a relationship with him i think we should catch him
>>800942Time for ALLAHU AKBAR
>>800987Something that damages a friendly.
>>800966>>800976Good ideas. Murkrow is awesome, and I could see a ghost being good for the team, especially to cover Gobble's weakness.That said, who knows what we'll find? Limiting ourselves to just six seems like a good idea, though. One of the best things about this quest has been how much more fleshed out and individual our pokemon feel this time around, and I think sticking with just six will allow that to continue.
>>801004Well Bella is farther away than Gobble, Also thinking about it, a 1 on metronome is super bad. Not only did we get a 1 on our attack, but on the move we got as well. So he might just explode and touch nothing.
>>800987Baton Pass, swaps Gob out for Mace. Violates the 2v2 and we lose by default.
>>800975>HellbornWhatever happened to Languid anyways?Did he go AWOL or what?
>>801042He's... doing an alternate timeline type deal of the same quest on Anonkun. Sierra's dad stuck around, doesn't appear to have met the hallows. He doesn't update it often though.
>>801042He's writing a book based loosely on Hellborn, I think some of it's up on Akun. Says he's going to continue the main quest after it.
I really hope we can find Leavanny eventually
>>801010>Advocating a hard limit.AHAHAHAHAHAHA...No.Having a small selection is fine, but hard limits are kind of dumb, unless there's a set plot like with the Adventures Manga.
>>801050>rebooted instead of finishing it outHe will be missed.
what if it's Splash?
>>801061Well if Gobble is feeling particularly dark.It's bite and he eats the other guys mon.
>>801061Bad Luck makes me think it will be something super bad.
>>801065Watch it be bite and he eats Bella.
>>801058Then don't vote for it, I guess?
“Metronome!”Gobble nods and waves his fingers. He summons up the power of any and all moves. He looks deep within himself and grabs a move out of thin air. You watch as he runs forward with a High Jump Kick!He flies through the air with all the grace of a startled Tangula whose tentacles all wanted to go in a different direction. He flaps and flails as he crashes onto the ground.Voltorb zooms by and zaps him with an Electroball while he’s down. It’s powerful move but the execution is sloppy. Gobble is very slowly trying to get to his feet. Voltorb zooms by him with a mocking noise and turns towards BellaBella looks ready to fight!>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!>Try Worry Seed>Mega Drain it down. Keep it busy while Gobble Recovers>Something else[Consider Gobble surviving an apology for my earlier mess up]
>>801088>>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!
>>800942theres that bad luck
>>801088>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!
>>801088>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!Not gonna lie, that picture of Brock takes a lot of the sting out of that result.
>>801088>Mega Drain it down. Keep it busy while Gobble Recovers
>>801088>Try Worry SeedLong view here, we want to get Worry Seed before she evolves, without holding her back more than necessary.
>>801088>>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!Try to steer it back around to Gobs and have him Focus Punch it
>>801088>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!She needs to anticipate his path
>>801088>Bella,shoot pin missiles in its path!Worry seed is great and all but it's not very useful right now
>>801088>>Mega Drain it down. Keep it busy while Gobble RecoversShe's hurt. Let her heal.
>>801088>Bella! Shoot Pin Missile’s in it’s path!>>801119Problem is, since we haven't taken many opportunities to train in our off time we're stuck with trying to learn stuff mid battle; and most of the time it just doesn't really work as an option.

“Charge Beam!”Voltorb hits Bella with a strong electrical attack. She’s pushed back again but not off of her feet. She breathes heavily. Voltorb looks charged up now, and even more dangerous.You look to Mace. Mace is giving all of his attention to Voltorb. He looks deep in though. You don’t have time to get into that, though.With that ball going that fast and not weighing very much, a few well placed bumps could send it flying. “Bella! Use Pin Missile! Lay them down directly in it’s path!”Bella nods and fires! It goes off like a machine gun. You think one or two may have hit him, but nothing got where you wanted it to.Voltorb comes around again. It’s trainer yells “Alright! Let’s finish them off!”Gobble is up and ready. He doesn’t appreciate that.Alright! You’ll only get one more shot at this. You need to make it count. You look to Gobble, first. He might be able to get a move off while Voltorb is coming around.>Metronome, one more time!>Try to use Odor Sleuth>Focus Punch the ground>Tackle and hope for the best>Something else

>>801288>>Focus Punch the groundThat's the trouble with being a ball. Bad terrain will screw you.
>>801288>>Focus Punch the groundthat's the coolest ending a battle can have
>>801288>>Focus Punch the ground>>801313Wonder if Water Sport would have been a decent choice to try with Bella. Probably wouldn't have mattered with our rolls, but I could see it working to muddy up the battlefield a bit.
