Getting Strong Nowhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Island%20Adventure%20Questhttps://twitter.com/GobbleQMCharacter info pastebin coming soon/eventuallyGeneral 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. 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 found drunken Laki and sober Valie in the forest, got mace tested (and had a close call with a malfunction thanks to your bad luck), battled someone that works at the local gym and got some helpful information. You've decided to take the day to train.
First for GIT GUD
>>824711Really? You think adding Git gud keeps you from being the fag who says first post?
>>824718I'm just showing my hype. Better than leaving a name on
>>824700[This pokeball of mine glows with an awesome power!]
Providing some tips to acquiring waifus.How was your week, Gobble? Will work keep being a bitch next week?
Who needs a waifu when we have best rock?
>>824750My thoughts exactly.
“That was great!” Keira is bouncing with energy. “I didn’t think I’d start liking battles so quickly.” Her face is flushed with excitement. “But I think I’m starting to get it.”Her Tropius and Nincada crowd around her. ‘Do you guys want to try battling?”Tropius seems a bit worried about it. Nincada looks more receptive but with his face it’s hard to really tell.The two of you walk back to the Pokemon center. Keira stops to quickly repaint a faded arrow on a signpost.“There!” She looks at it with a sense of satisfaction. She looks at your confused face. “You don’t do that where you’re from? Give spirits directions to the next world?”>You don’t believe in spirits>You don’t believe that the dead need any help getting to the next world. They just get there>Change the subject>Something else
>>824754I still hold to my claim that he resembles metaknightWhy not buy mace a mask ?? !!
>>824743Is it sad that a large portion of this is what happens in waifu wars?
>>824760>>You don’t believe that the dead need any help getting to the next world. They just get there
>>824760>You don’t believe that the dead need any help getting to the next world. They just get there
>>824760>change the subject
>>824760>You don’t believe in spiritsYa'know besides ghost pokemon, of course. Lets see that clash of cultures guys.
>>824786We were afraid of spirits in a previous thread though.
>>824775>>824776>>824778I've never gotten the sense John was very spirtual, but it is the pokemon world, hard to deny spirits when there are actually ghost mons.
>>824796I was just thinking Herb was afraid of traveling through a dark forest at night. Not so must spirits as say possible ghost mons trying to spook you.
>>824797When we first went into spook forest we were scared of spirits
>>824760>>You don’t believe that the dead need any help getting to the next world. They just get thereGhost pokemon seem to be compelling evidence.
>>824797I don't really think of it as being very spiritual but as just common belief in the afterlife in general
>>824760>You don’t believe in spirits
>>824818I thought that was more gauging why it was called the Spirit Woods and less about any belief in any actual spirits. I guess I could see it being read as a fear of spooks.
>>824873We had to roll to not run from streetlight to streetlight.
>>824760>Change the subject
>>824743[Exhausting. Work is ideally going to be lighter this week, but we'll see. I say/hope that a lot.]
>>824877That's just a fear of the dark, doesn't have much to do with fear of spooks.>>824901Hope work becomes less tring for ya Gobble. I'm glad you were able to run today. I was looking forward to the quest all week!
>>824760>>You don’t believe that the dead need any help getting to the next world. They just get there>>Something elseGive her a brief run down on the difference in our spiritual beliefs.
>>824911ThisWe also need to share our culture
>>824911>>824922I don't think we have that strong of beliefs.
>>824922Need is a strong word.
>>824911What do we believe in?Xerneas and Yveltal? The lake trio? Arceus and his dragon pals?
>>824940I'm not really in the know about these creation myths, what's the difference between them?
>>824940>>824952I thought in the first thread we decided that John wasn't that big into religion. I could be wrong though.
>>824940Oh well, time to get some lore dump here. What do mainlanders believe in, Gobble? In the games, Arceus, the supposed creator, isn't even well-known unless you're an ancient history or myth nerd like Cynthia.
You explain to her that you believe spirits don’t really need help getting to the afterlife. They just sort of get there.“But that’s what ghost pokemon and other spirits are. Your homeland must have so many stray spirits. You wouldn’t even be able to sleep with all that noise.”“I didn’t mean to offend you or-”“No. Sorry. I’m the one that asked. I shouldn’t question you like this. I just...how..” She stops herself, then opens her mouth to speak and raises a finger, then stops herself again. She puts her finger down and gets lost in thought. You get the feeling that this will be something she digs into later.“Hi!” Hana is there at the Pokemon center and getting her balls back. “How’d it go?”Keira falls right out of her thoughts and gets really excited. She blurts out everything about your match. Most of it is out of order. Hana politely nods and pretends to follow every detail as Keira makes sound effects and slips in a few words in the native language.You get your Pokeballs back.Wait. Hana has two now. You ask and she tells you that she got her fossil from the caves revived. She sends it out. “Say hello, Tirtouga.”The turtle pokemon looks up at you quizzically. “He’s still adjusting to this world,” Keira says as she squats down and waves. “What an interesting aura you have.”The pokemon cocks its head.>Ask if they’re going to challenge the gym>Ask Keira if she’d like to try battling you>Ask Hana if she wants to train together>Go train on your own. You need to stay focused>Something else
>>824930Well, we still grew up in a different cultural milieu, which was informed by a particular set of spiritual beliefs.
>>824959Only thing relevant I think is that John believes in Magic or the possibility of real magic, he's a bit naive, not really much about spirits and such I could find in thread 1.
>>824979>>Ask Keira if she’d like to try battling you
>>824979>go train on your own
>>824979>Ask Hana if she wants to train together
>>824979>Ask Hana and Keira if they want to train together

>>824979>Ask if they’re going to challenge the gym>Ask Hana if she wants to train together>Ask if Keira wants to train with us too

Wait. If ghost pokemon are the spirits of the dead who have not passed on, what is Shedinja? And how does breeding ghosts work?
>>825038Some things are natural born spirits. Also Shedninja is the husk of Nincada that keeps on going
>>825038So pokemon are a literal representation of Shinto spirituality. They are basically literally the spirits that reside in everything. Ghost mons are human spirits that bond with something in the physical world. Once they become pokemon, I believe breeding is just the same for all mons.
>>825061>the spirits that reside in everythingJust to add a little note, Roman mythology also had those.
>>825077Yeah but roman mythology isn't japanese. Pokemon is.
>>825077It's just specifically in reference to Shintoism in the case of pokemon.
5 days till the games come out~ that said i've spoiled myself completely trying to figure out if the gen 7 mons that interested me were any good.
>>824760Keira's adorable. Here's some more.
>>825125Unless you're in Europe. Fuck whoever decided to make us wait an extra week.
>>825125Some shitters on /vp/ are hating on my fave, but I think it'll be good
“Are you guys planning on taking the gym?”“That’s more of the fighting clergy domain.” Keira says. “I’d like to watch, though.”Hana adjusts her pokeball belt and grabs an apple. “I don’t know. But I want to do something.” She suddenly looks up. “Yes! I’m going to take on the gym.” The apple explodes in her powered hand. She looks horribly guilty at the mess. You and Keira help her clean up as Hana tries to become invisible. Eventually the eyes that were drawn look away and she relaxes a bit more.“Want to go out back and work up a sweat together? I bet we could teach each other a lot.”Hana freezes and stares at you. “What?”“Train. Want to train our pokemon?”She looks worried, but she narrows her brows and gains a sharp, determined look in her eyes. “Yes.”You head to the open area behind the Pokemon center. There’s a small jungle gym that’s not in use and a nice shaded area to stand and train in. An old man strikes up a conversation with Keira. Sounds like he’s asking her advice on something. She really must get a lot of respect.Hana and you stand in the shade. She rubs her arm.Huh. You have no idea where to start.>Start working on Mace’s speed.

You have experience with young Pokemon nowConsidering the gimmick of the gym, there's a good chance anything that enters the fight will end up as a water type anyway; so no point forcing her to catch anything else just yet. Just work with what we've got.

>>825193So anything we can do to mitigate the obvious grass and/or electric type moves the leader will throw our way
We should do some training on the beachDodging waves and stuff to emulate the water cannons
could we teach Bella Sunny Day? The cannon apparently act like the move SoakIf nothing else, it would power up her grass attacks later on.Plus it would be cool to have a weather team
>>825271I would rather get the basics down first. I think Water Sport will be useful here though if we can get the electric Pokemon covered in water also.
>>825271That sounds good to me. Weather Ball could turn out to be a really versatile move if we go that route.
>>825232Well, the main issue is the water and the cannons; focusing on movement to get out / dodge might be able to work. If we can get the cannons to hit the gym leader's Pokemon then Bella can probably do some good damage too.>>825282The gym battle is basically set in a shallow pool of water with Water Cannons soaking everything such that everything is weak to electricity and has trouble evading it. Only their Pokemon have stuff like Volt Absorb so it doesn't matter if they get hit for the most part.
>>825302I didn't remember the shallow pool part. Gym sounds pretty rigged if the gym leader isn't a moron.
>>825164>Develop fun training exercises for all the Pokémon >practice jumping rope to work on speed and dodging >have Hana throw pebble fastballs to work on dodging and defense>stomp through the ocean or hula hoop to work on stamina>see who can knock down the m most coconuts to work on power, then cook the coconuts
>>825311Still better than Clair's gym. Now that was bullshit.
We should teach our pokemon to dance in order to dodgeIt could work for gyms and contest
>>825345>we invent PokeCapoeirafund it
>>825345Not opposed; though for this gym its more jumping than anything that's needed to dodge and that might be tough. Honestly I'm half inclined to just have Gobble attempt to tank everything with Amnesia and play defense while the others stand on his head throwing around attacks.
Tirtouga makes me happy. I'm glad the little guy showed up.
>>825376But hitmontop or whatever it's called already dose thatAlso it was done in the anime wasn't it?
You spend the morning working with her and Tirtouga. The little guy seems to be adjusting quickly. Apparently fossil Pokemon get a bit of accelerated aging and even some genetic memory. It’s not really yours or Hana’s forte though, so you’re not sure if you both have a firm understanding.But all the science talk turns to sci-fi talk. The two of you have seen and like a lot of the same movies. Hana knows a lot more about them though. You mention liking a certain scene, and she goes on about the director’s cut commentary and the behind the scenes stuff.You make an offhand joke about Tirtouga being like Gamera when he flops over a little sandcastle.She stops and frowns. “No. That’s not fair. More like Rodan. He looks like a turtle, but his personality is different.”Tirtouga seems to have gotten the hang of things and can move like a battler now. He even has some nice moves.“Thanks.” Hana smiles at you. Somehow that does things to your body similarly to when Laki presses against you or Keira’s lack of shirt does. It’s like her honest smile is this mysterious and rare thing. “Let’s work on one of your Pokemon now.”You guess Mace first makes sense.Mace eagerly jumps up, ready to show his stuff. His brace keeps him slow, though.>Work on a new move>Train a stat>Try to use his energy to get fast>Try to use his energy to attack>Try to use his energy to be agile>Something else
Bella dance dodging sounds amazing.
>>825389armless capoeira thenwe need to keep up the lack of arms for the rest of the questidk about the anime though
>>825411>Try to use his energy to get fast
>>825411>>Try to use his energy to be agileMove like sand, flowing across the desert. Twist with the wind, be one with the air
>>825411>Try to use his energy to be agile

>>825411>>Try to use his energy to get fastRocketrock!

>>825411>Try to use his energy to get fast>Chat with Hana about why she wants to take the gym challenge

>>825411>>Try to use his energy to get fast

>>825439Seconding.CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!And if I may, Herb's constant double entendres are hilarious.Especially where Hana is concerned.
>>825411>Work on a new moveDig
>>825411>try to make him agileFirst we dodge their shitThen we out speed their shitThen we reach judo bellsprout levels of badass bullshit
>>825462this would be a good idea, we could drain the pool so we don't end up getting Soakedand Mace can hide in the tunnels and pop up to shoot rock blasts
[Sorry for the delay. Dice rolls, please!]
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>825545
Rolled 25 (1d100)>>825545
Rolled 2 (1d100)>>825545
>>825547PROGRESS>>825550Oh god, that was close
>>825557>1 >we have to roll to see if mace evolves on accident
>>825572That was my worry too
>>825547NiceSo Bella might be able to absorb the water and mace ,depending on how good he is at dodging, may be able to dodge the cannons
>>825547>>825550The dice are still as bipolar as ever.
You’re a bit torn. Speed like Voltorb’s could be amazing. But the ability to pivot and move in a battle (or dance) is tempting too. You decide to do a bit of both.You explain to Mace about releasing the energy in bursts to give himself a little extra push. He can make himself move around in less predictable ways and also get around faster.“Alright. Now Mace, try it out.”Mace takes a moment to center himself, looses a few bursts, the fires off like a rocket. He’s skimming on the ground moving around like a balloon losing it’s air and lifts off a few feet up. You automatically flinch as he zooms right at the jungle gym.But instead of clanging against it, he zips around. Up! Down! Left! Right! “Atta Boy! What a start!”You train on it for the afternoon and he does amazingly. Hana offers a lot of insight, too, and helps you think about things like blowback thrust from being close to obstacles. He makes a lot of mistakes here and there, but each one teaches a valuable lesson.He sputters out as he runs out of energy. You tell him to take it easy and rest. He’s done great. He sits down on what you guess you’d call his butt. He wants to keep going, but his body language concedes that you’re probably right about stopping. He’s got very little energy left.You whip up a quick meal for you and Hana and your Pokemon. She helps with cutting things up.“So what made you want to take on the gym?”She looks at the ocean, towards the same direction you saw Keira painting that arrow before. “I made a promise.”“To who? For what?”She looks to you, like she’s deciding how vulnerable she can be. “I don’t know. I don’t want you to look at me differently.”>Promise you won’t make a big deal out of it>Leave it for now>Offer to tell her something personal about yourself>Something else

>>825806[Crap. Did I use that one before?Update still being written. Sorry about the speed]
>>825830I know you used THAT one before. The last one wasn't old I think.
So I just went back and looked at some of the abilities for SuMo Holy shit that water bug thing can be insaneIts ability allows it to 2 shot skarmary as it doubles it's power THAN adds stab bonus
>>825839>SuMoStop that, also keep in mind it is ONLY for water moves
>>825853I have literally no other abbreviations I haven't put much thought into itAnd sure it's only water moves but it's still fucking insane
>>825830No, just damn, that was some fine ass.
>>825869S&MThe Pokemon will be alright, but insane is an overstatement.
>>825869It's SM. Just like XY, RBY, etc.
>>825839What the hell water bug are you talking about?
>>825881Bubble Spider. It's main ability is Huge Power for water attacks basically.
>>825881araquanid the bubble spiderit has the ability water bubble which reduces fire damage, prevents burns and has the secret effect of being a water type specific version of Huge Power.
>>825885damn, gen7 is pretty good for bug types.I'm hoping we get one for John, a Wimpod, Cutiefly, or the bubble spider would all be awesome
>>825885>>825891The actual fuck, it's huge power too? When did they find that out?
>>825900The raw stats of it are still kinda shit. And it lacks any priority. Cutiefly's line is probably the most reliable of the them comp wise.
“I’ll reveal something if you do.” You offer.“Reveal...” Her eyes glaze over in that strange way. She shakes her head. “I don’t know. I don’t want you to feel bad for me and make it into this whole thing.”“I promise I’ll look at you the same.”“Well.” She looks over to you. “I guess I’d be missing the point if I didn’t take a chance. Okay. I’ll tell you. Just, remember that promise, okay? Please?”“Okay.”“Well, after the accident. The car accident. And the time in the coma, and the surgeries. Aaaaaand the rehabilitation. And the trials and errors with,” she clinks her legs and taps her fake arm, “all this. After that, I made a friend at the children’s hospital.”You get a really bad feeling about where this is going.“Jenny. She was really nice. I didn’t really have anybody.” She inhales sharply. “She couldn’t get out at all. So we watched movies together.” Her voice starts to quiver. She shakes it off and exhales deeply. “But she always felt guilty that I’d spend my time inside with her instead of going out. We...she got some bad news and when she knew it...it was going to be over soon, she made me promise I’d go out and live. Not just stay in with escapism all day, but take chances, do things, and have a life.” You can’t see her face. She’s keeping it looking away.>Hug her>Hold her hand>Say nothing>Change the subject to telling her something about yourself right away>Something else

>>825916>Change the subject to telling her something about yourself right awayTold her we wouldn't be different.She's concerned about being seen as vulnerable because she doesn't want to be pitied, so let's not treat her like she's vulnerable and make her concerned that she's being pitied.
>Hug her.We're a pretty huggy person.>>825943Seconding this.
>>825916>Hug her >>825907Pretty much what I deduced from looking at it after a few minutes. I'm glad it's better than we thought though, Golisopod and Ribombee still seem much better though.

>doesn't want us to feel bad for her or make it into a whole thing>Proceed to do just thatGood job everyone
>>825916>Hug her>"I'm sure she'd be really proud of you for going on this adventure."
>>825962Herb is a huggy guy. We can promise to not to do it more.
>>825962I see it as feeling sympathy, Herb isn't patronizing her and I honestly don't think he'll treat her differently.
>>825962The alternative is to sit there awkwardly while she has her breakdown not knowing what to do.
>>825962Eh, I get what you're saying, but I don't think that's what we're doing. We're just being nice, and it's probably just a quick hug. John is a pretty affectionate person, so this makes sense for him.
>>825916>>Hug her>>Hold her hand
You aren’t really sure what to do. Is a huge inappropriate? Will she see it as pitying?Ah. you can’t help it. You lean over and give her a good, hard, hug. She doesn't respond."I'm sure she'd be really proud of you for going on this adventure."You feel her arms awkwardly decide what to do for a few seconds before pulling you in. You feel the warm sun vanishing behind a cloud and slowly fade from your back in contrast to the warm tears on the front of your shirt.She keeps apologizing. You get the feeling that there’s even more to her story, but decide to let that be for now. You don’t know what to do so you just tell her that it’s okay. You keep your eyes on your Pokemon just in case but keep your focus on her. She pulls away. “That wasn’t what I” she sniffs, “meant to do.”She smiles. Her eyes are crystal clear. You can tell she’s feeling self-conscious and worried you’ll think differently of her. Especially after that hug and cry. >Tell her the sad story about when your grandpa passed>Tell her the embarrassing story about the time you farted in front of a whole auditorium>Tell her about the painful time you tried to do a flip and ended up needing stitches>Tell her about the time you were scared for your life from a wild pokemon>Something else

>>826213If Alolan Cubone is ghost-type, Kiera can't train one.If not... that complicates evolution.
>>826213It is pretty rad >>826209Honestly my favorite ground type is probably Donphan

>>826238Wait I'm blind, Hypno is just making her skirt ride up.
>>826238Gligar can't learn Earthquake, though, right?Excluding TM or egg moves.
>>826238I'd have to say my favorite type overall is steel though. Bisharp and Metagross are my dudes

>>826253Wow, that's just about one of the least sexy things I've ever seen.Nidoking is rad though.
You tell her about when your grandpa passed. He was always a big part of your life. You and your siblings would visit him at the daycare all the time. He’d always show you the new pokemon coming in, spoil you with candy, and you’d play around on the equipment meant for pokemon.Then the heart attack happened. It’s not exactly like they show on television. It’s not like he just clutched his chest and rolled over. He was sweating and looking tired for a while, kept insisting he was fine, and only finally agreed there was a problem when your dad called the ambulance. Your dad lied to you and said it was fine. You lied to your little brother. Well, at least it felt like a lie. For all you knew, and for all your dad knew, or at least hoped, it was fine.It’s her turn to hold you now. She pulls your head to her chest and you feel a little guilty about how distracting the soft feeling is. Your grandpa was a lot like your dad though and he’d probably be giving you a thumbs up right now.For some reason, Bella looks incredibly eager to train. You pull your head up and look at Hana. She has that weird glazed over look mixed with a look of guilt and self-consciousness. She shakes her head. You both apologize at the same time but neither of you really knows why the other does it.“Do you want to train?” She looks at Bella as the small pokemon headbutts her ankle.Bella sits and pouts.>Try to teach her a move>Work on a stat>Improve her draining power>Something else

>>826374Or lewd things, yes. Man, now I'm rooting for John x Hana.
>>826330>Try to teach her a moveHonestly I'd be okay with anything. I know someone else wanted to lock down Worry Seed though, and I think it could be handy at the next gym - Removing Volt Absorb could cause some friendly fire given the battlefield in the gym.
>>826390Bella ships us with Laki. Lookit dis hussy moving on mama's man, oh he'll no.
>>826390Bella opposing a ship by gently headbutt in John's ankle is adorable.
>>826395please don't start this stuff up now
>>826390Bella ships Laki, so seeing John getting close to other females isn't kosher with her.
>>826330>Try to teach her a moveWorry Seed.It's a missable, and has great utility for breaking synergy combos.
>>826403As long as other people don't start an argument about what I like, you've got nothing to worry about.
Oh hell.If all of our pokemon have their own ship...Gobble has made waifu wars canon.We're going to have to moderate them.What have we done.
>>826438We knew this would happen since thread 2 or 3
>>826438>We're going to have to moderate them.>What have we done.IT'S GOBBLE'S TURN TO SHITPOST US!
>>826438Bell has best taste. The others will just have to learn to live with it.
>>826452>Bell has shit taste. She will just have to learn to live with it.FTFY
I'll be completely honest, I like all the girls.And lewds. which is funny if you read my quest because those are a looooong way offHowever, I mostly just like seeing cute people in cute situations, like this one.
>>826452she's a baby, Bella doesn't have any taste at all
>>826524This is one butt I'm happy to see return.
You and Hana squat down to face the little pokemon. “So, what are we go-”Bella uses Water Sport on Hana.“Bella!” You scold as Bella sticks out her tongue at the poor girl. You turn to Hana. “I’m sorry. Oh man. She got it all over your face and chest.” You take off your shirt for her to dry her face with. She gets most of it off before she realizes what she has. Her face goes from surprise to glazed again when she looks up. “You didn’t need to do that.”“It’s fine.” You assure her. “That fabric dies quickly. Your shirt won’t dry off for awhile, though.”Hana looks down. Her sweater is soaked and clinging her chest. She goes off to the bushes and comes back in her tank top. You can tell she’s a bit self-conscious and you try not to stare. Dad was right about the girls on this island, though.Bella looks very defeated. You sit her down and explain to her why that was bad. Hana says that maybe Bella did it by accident. You guess that’s plausible. They both seem to want to move on from it so you let it go for now.>Teach Worry Seed (easiest)>Start on Sunny Day (likely will take more than a session)>Start on Toxic (likely will take more than a session)>Start on Bullet Seed (Will take more than a session)>Start on Giga Drain (likely will take more than a session)

>>826632Huh. I could have sworn we'd never tried Stun Spore before. It seemed implied that we didn't know it for sure during the Jane fight, and I don't think we tried it during the electric fight, but maybe it's just my reading comprehension.
>>826697Pokemon learn moves as they grow. So even if we never used it, Bella knows how,
>>826697It's because Jane's Hitmonlee or its previous Evo can benefit from a status effect or are immune to paralysis. Electric types are also immune to paralysis
>>826712>>826707You are wildly correct, thank you.
“Let’s work on Worry Seed.”Bella nods. Tirtouga and Mace volunteer to be targets for it.The first time she just sort of hits Mace with a light green ball of energy that does absolutely nothing. You and Hana encourage her to keep trying.You try your best not to stare too obviously when Hana leans over. She keeps herself facing a certain angle to keep her scars from being too obvious, but doing so just pushes her chest more into your field of vision. It’s a good thing Hana is so pure and innocent, otherwise she might realize how pervy you’re being.You feel a little exposed yourself. Lots of people here walk around without a shirt, but you’re not exactly a pile of muscles or anything special. You’re pretty skinny. You feel a bit stronger since that stuff with Laki, though. Huh. Actually, are your pecs a little bigger? Maybe you should lift more.You look back to Bella. She’s doing great. She uses Worry Seed twice in a row!“Awesome!” You give her a hug. She makes a cute, happy squeaking noise. “I’m really proud of you.” You look over to Mace and Tirtouga. “You too. Thanks for volunteering.”Mace looks confused at his new status. You remind him that it’s temporary and he calms down.Bella goes to rest near Togepi. The small egg pokemon seems offers and hand in friendship and Bella begrudgingly accepts for now. For a second you get a little worried, but the two are hitting it off despite whatever issue Bella seems to have right now.You glance over to Gobble. He’s staring up at some coconuts in a tree. Some drool falls down the side of his mouth.>Work on a stat>Try a new move>Work on dancing. He seems to have a penchant for it>Something else

>>826741>>Work on dancing. He seems to have a penchant for itRemind me when we're done training to throw in a write in for grooming our mon. Gobble probably needs his fur brushed and bella could use some nice misting, Mace could use a nice polishing.

>>826741>It’s a good thing Hana is so pure and innocentI love you Gobble.>Work on dancing. He seems to have a penchant for it
>>826741>>Work on dancing. He seems to have a penchant for itI love the idea of surprising people with a dancing Snorlax when they expect it to be bulky and slow
>>826741>Try a new moveTime to use "Chip away" to get into one of those coconuts.Alternatively, Snatch in order to get them.
>>826782We'll teach him to Moonwalk.Because that would be hilarious.
Wait, why do you guys want to train for dancing with the gym battle tomorrow?
>>826789>he doesn't know what a battle dance or the like 10 dance moves areCome on now. Also if the gym is a double battle, Gobs as much as I love him, is the most likely to sit out.
>>826789Because... it'll be awesome when he wins?
>>826776I can already imagine both of them feeling relieved when they realize they're not weird for having those thoughts, because they've both been having them.
>>826789Because Gobble is pretty bullshit this early on. >Hi special def >amazing HP and Attack >Great movepool He's kinda broken already
>>826789Teeter Dance? Quiver Dance? Thrash could count maybe (mosh pit)
>>826792>Gobs as much as I love him, is the most likely to sit out.What, why would the mon with the best special defense be sitting out?

Rolled 51 (1d100)>>826804
>>826803Because move wise he has the least going for him. Mace has some slight evasion and rock moves, Bella will resist electric without rock and can make the cannon backfire extra hard if they get soaked. All 3 are good, but Bella and Mace would be my vote as of this moment without knowing what dancing does.
>>826792No reason to have him sit out unless he just doesn't want to participate. He's easily our best pokemon right now, because Munchlax is completely insane as a starter.>>826789Because it's something unique, and also because Gobble seems to enjoy dancing. The little guy's got style, and we should encourage that.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>826804
>>826824Stats aren't as close as they are in the game. But he is still very good. In a double battle we likely will only get 2 Pokemon. So I'm just saying which two I think might be the best. Since if we use Gobble he is likely to be prime target for the cannon, and his great special bulk will be mitigated by the SE damage.
>>826835This is true. Good point.
>>826835We should consider Mace's use of Mud Sport too.
>>826842I forgot that move existed
>>826842Amazing point, the water can probably wash it away, but that might mean it doesn't get soaked. Or even better, is covered in mud.
>>826842My God, Mud Sport is going to be amazing in the gym battle.
>>826849OOHCLOG THE CANNON
>>826855SHOOT ROCKS AND PINMISSILES INTO IT.Or we can try to hang back from longer range, not likely to work if water is everywhere, but mud sport will finally see use for the first time in Pokemon history.
>>826835Add Amnesia into the mix and I bet he could probably just tank a lot of electric attacks even with the water in play. Maybe even try giving him a Sitrus Berry and pray it doesn't get eaten immediately / he remembers he has it.>>826842Roggenrola doesn't actually get that move normally. Might be able to improvise something with Mud Slap though.
>>826862Mudslap can maybe still fuck up the cannon if he can get close enough. The way I see it our Pokemon would have 3 roles in the gym battle.Bella: ArtilleryMace: MachinegunGobble: Meatwall
>>826855M8, clogging it with mud isn't even remotely possible unless either the water pressure is sub-faucet-tier or we have access to its water supply.Even rocks probably won't work if it has any appreciable pressure to it, again, unless we can somehow get it in the water feed.
>>826862Also Bella herself has pretty high Special Defense and built in recovery moves. I think she should be in for sure. So the question is who do we want between Gobble and Mace.>>826872Dreams can be dreams, but we could possible just wreck the cannon.
So I found a picture of something we need in our lives: albino volcarona Seriously, look how sick this is.
>>826878Let it go anon. We will find our true bug one day.
>>826880I'm a fan of other bugs as much as the next guy. This is just a really sick bug.That said, vespiquen would also be great. Combee is adorable, and imagine all the honey we could get.
>>826892I just realized that line would also ruin Jane's day since x4 resist fighting.>>826902I would be happy with most bugs.
>>826902John should read up on the local fauna some more. Even if it's just to know what to prepare to face in the wild. It could also result in some cool plot points, like going honey gathering.
“Come on, Gobble. Let’s dance.”Gobble very reluctantly pulls himself away from the tree.“Dance?” Hana asks.“Yeah!” Keira finally comes back. “I forgot, but Gobble seemed to really want to dance before when Laki and I got Herb in his boxers in the woods.”Hana blinks. “Boxers?”“Anyway!” you move the subject away from how you got pranked. “What do you say, Gobble?”Gobble looks back up at the tree.Keira assesses the tree and gives it a strong hip check. The tree shakes, but the coconut doesn’t come down. “Hana, can you help me?”Hana has that dazed look again and agrees to whatever Keira says. She seems a bit nervous as the two girls try to get the hip check synced up. But still, it doesn’t knock the coconut down.“Herb, Gobble?” She asks. Gobble is eager to help. You both get on the other side of it and hip check the tree as the top shakes over to your side. You all make a little game out of it. The girls laugh and Gobble seems to temporarily forget about the food and has fun.There’s a nice little rhythm going. Circle, shake, circle, bump. It all comes to a head when you end it with a bump together and a coconut fall down directly in front of Gobble. You’re about to offer to prepare it for him when he just takes a cracking bite out of it. That’s terrifying.You two girls laugh and you try not to think impure thoughts as they lean against each other after all that rhythmic hip shaking. Hana has stopped having that awkward posture where she tries to hide her scars and just goes with it. The laughter starts coming down and they both look to you, then up above your head. Their expressions suddenly change.“Herb! Look o-”CONK[That's it for today. Work seems to have calmed down at least a little bit so I'm optimistic about at least one thread this week. Maybe Wednesday]
>>826918Well our bad luck won't give us head trauma with a 78 I hope. Also thanks for running!
>>826918Thanks for running Gobble! I won't give up on my quest to ask Jane on a date and hold her hand
>>826918Thanks for running Gobble, I hope you get a nice night of sleep.
>>826918RIP Johnthanks for running Gobble
>>826918Thanks for running, Gobble. That was great. Man, Hana and Keira are both great, and I'm glad they're hitting it off.So, most important question of the night: what sort of music does Munchlax-Gobble like the most?
>>826914[Glad you brought that up. I've been thinking of different legendary food items John could make with the right ingredients, recipe, and timing. Stuff with different effects]>>826923>>826930>>826931[Thanks for coming!]>>826932[Gobble enjoys rhythmic conga line type beats, but he hasn't really been exposed to much else]
>>826918>hip checking a treeThat sounds like a good way to shatter a bone.
>>826918Poor Gobble. He's going to feel so guilty. It might even put him off his coconut.
>>826918Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>826936Did we get hit by a coconut.
>>826936I have just the thing for thiswarning, this gif is incredibly lewd
>>826936We should treat him to some upbeat jazz or swing. That's the sort of mainland sound I think he could appreciate.
>>826942>It might even put him off his coconut.[Yeah I wouldn't worry about that]>>826944[Thanks for coming!]>>826947[Yes]
>>826951>Yeah I wouldn't worry about thatpfft
>>826953He can worry while enjoying his coconut. That boy knows how to multitask.
>>826955Indeed, I forget, does the Lax line get crunch? iirc they do
>>826960I'm pretty sure they do, yeah. Based on what we just saw, Gob might already know it.
>>826960Snorlax get's it pretty late
>>826966>>826968Thanks, man snorlax/munchlax without 4 moveslot syndrome is fantastic
>>826949I've always wanted to put my penis in one of those but I dont know why.must be a psychology thing
>>826936Just at a glance, Gobbs might enjoy Haka or Hamboning. If you want an example of unique island cooking, try episode 8 of "Fighting Foodons." Or don't, because mostly madness that way lies.
>>827008Okay, fuck, I can't stop thinking about it.So, obviously humans have been eating whatever they can for fucking forever, and a lot of variety has cropped up from that. So the things you can do fur cooking quests are basically endless. Let's start with the basics.Fruits come in all sorts of rarities, forms, and flavors. We haven't even discovered them all. Nicely enough, the tropical setting even lends itself to some of the most famously bizarre ones.The Dragonfruit is beautiful, and the Durian intimidating.The humble Banana has its roots in a smaller, harder fruit that needed to be cooked. Conservation efforts are ongoing to recover and maintain the rich diversity of forms the Banana once took.Hell, even applescome in so many different varieties, and those are just the established clone stocks. A cross, or even a self-fertilized apple is basically a mystery box.There's one species of a black melon in Japan that is produced at under 100 per year.Obviously every type of food has top-end expensive varieties. Massaged beefs, ancient wines and vinegars, white truffles.Foi Gras, the liver of a force-fed goose, is often reprimanded for inhumane production. But the best Foi Gras can be produced by shaping an environment so packed with delicious wild herbs, berries, and insects, that the geese stay without cages and stuff themselves.Royal jelly is fed to bee larva, and a hive can produce 500 grams per year. I'm pretty sure it's snake oil, but whatever.The honeypot ant species has specialized workers which engirge themselves and store the energy their swollen golden abdomens.And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Cactus juice, rare herbs and spices, bird saliva soup, etc. So much else is ripe for the adventuring. And after the weird is the taboo. The ultimate food taboo in our world is cannibalism. Even ignoring meats, there's also human cheese. Fortunately, Pokemon provides us with lighter fare for taboo foods. Slowpoke tail is the original, but since they grow back it's less of a big deal if you amputate humanely.A bigger deal is Cherubi's vestigial head. While it would presumably not hurt the Cherubi, the lore implies it might not be able to evolve anymore afterwards.I don't know if Pokemon eggs are ever unfertilized, but that's one creepy omelette.While Gropius or a fruiting Torterra would be fine, I know I would be uncomfortable drinking Miktank milk fresh from the source.Anyways, maybe you should drop /ck/ a line if you're interested in brainstorming.
>>827185>Pokemon Trainers are not Kosher
>>826951If you hadn't said yes I would have assumed we were hit on the head with a Crabrawler.
>>827275 Gobble is asleep so post cutes for his image folder
>>827323Ok just one.
>>827185This is super cool. I'd love to see this expanded upon.So, question: under Kashrut law, how would magikarp be handled? Obviously it's pretty much just a fish, but its evolution is not kosher. Gyarados is something of a special case because of how different it is from its base form, and because apparently adult magikarp can grow to be enormous, but that does bring up the question of an unevolved or immature form of a pokemon being kosher while the fully-formed version is not. Following this logic, Feebas is kosher, but Milotic is not; no problem there. What about Piplup and its line. Empoleon is obviously both a bird of prey and a steel type, making it double bad, but how would Piplup be classified? Would we consider it just an immature Empoleon and therefore not kosher, or would it be considered a separate thing and be alright?
>>827008>Fighting FoodonsMy nigga>>827185I have nothing to add, this is just good shit.
>>827389The rule right after the one for fire types says that if the evolution isn't kosher, neither are the six levels before evolution.Piplup is not kosher because, as a water type, it does not have scales and fins.Honestly, it feels like very few pokemon are actually kosher.
>>827185John, the Aryan Jew. This tickles me more than it should
What island does everyone want to go to after this one?IIRC the ones on the right (Take) are a pirate hideout. The big one on the left is the most "modernized" with two big cities, and the middle one is like the holy Mt.Fuji.
>>827698You're absolutely right. I completely missed that.>>827722Gotta admit, though, it kind of makes sense for him to at least practice kosher eating habits. Really, it seems like it would make sense for that to be the norm in pokemon society.
>>827787I wanna head north and get our fossil checked out. Alternatively, we could head west and try our hand at a contest. I don't think we're ready for pirates yet though. We'll have to see if there's a public transport option or if we'll need to hitchhike.Also, I know we've talked about truth or dare eventually, but I would like to propose an additional game: never-have-I-ever.
>>827787I think the center with the Holy Mountain is the best bet because we can get our fossil checked, learn more about culture, and go pretty much anywhere from there.
>>827796Eh, what with regular animals existing, I bet in-setting eating habits to be pretty similar to real-world ones, with a few additional ingredients like Tropius bananas. Some places probably have common spiritual eating practices, and others have nutritional guidelines and diet fads. It's hard to say what John would practice without knowing his family's religious background.It would be interesting to know the rational behind the priestess eating rules though. Did we even find out what the name of Keira's religion is?Also, who wants to bet that if we ever do flirt with Hana she'll be so desensitized by that point we'll have to try extra hard to get her to notice?
>>827812I don't think we got a name, it is just how things work so far.That last idea would maybe make a great comedybin.
>>827812I think it would be hilarious that John is always dropping stuff that sets off her lewd radar, but when he does try to hit on her she just doesn't pick up on it.The waifus are too good and I can't pick one.Gobble please make a VN with all routes
>>827817That it's posthread I can gush about my favorite! LAKI A BEST, A BEEEEEEEEEEST
They are all great if I had to rank them it'd be: Jane, Laki, Hana, Valerie and Keira. But I feel that doesn't even matter I practically like them all the same.
>>827830I used to agree, but Val has really narrowed the gap.>>827834They have somewhat of a gap for me, but they are still pretty close.
>>827834My rankings are Keira, Hana, Jane, Laki, and Valerie.They're all pretty likeable, though Jane needs to mellow out and get her mental baggage sorted before she's pairing material.
>>827851Laki > Val > Hana > Keria > Jane
>>827853I think Val needs more development, although I hope we don't romance Hana. I like her, but she's kinda Robin 2.0
>>827853>>827863I kind of feel like if we go Laki we might just end up part of her harem with Val.
>>827867I mean, maybe? She likes blonde hair but that doesn't mean she'll make a harem. I wouldn't mind though, honestly
>>827863While Gobble is going to great lengths to make her a different character, I understand what you mean. We can still help her out with coming out of her shell, but romantically I feel like things would be very close.
>>827867I'd be okay with this. We should also get her a Smoochum. I still like Jane best not for her abrasiveness, for her passion and competitive nature. I find her need to one up people to be cute, however her paranoia leads to be desired but that's okay all the girls have their flaws
>>827871Except in bed. I'm pretty sure she would be a freak there.>>827873I think Jane is close to what Kat would be from an outside perspective.
>>827873I kinda want a smoochum for John. But I'll take anyone getting one. I still think Polu bumbling into all the champ's from the different game's pokemon is hilarious.
>>827846Yeah, I want to see what Jane acts like when she actually thinks well of us before I decide what I think of her.Laki and Val are a little weird. On the one hand they're both great options, but on the other hand they could also make a cute couple together. Hana and Keira don't have that right now, but we haven't gotten very close with Keira yet. I'll see what I think of Hana after this first gym.Basically Polu<Laki<Val<Hana<Keira<Jane.I'll be happy however it goes though.
>>827881We do need to find out who Polu likes and who likes him.
>>827878Maybe, I don't know but I've never thought of Kat from an outside perspective maybe missing some mischief or her heart of gold>>827879I hope we travel with Polu, I'm down for male bonding/rivalry
>>827885Just this time the mental issues are outward instead of inward.
>>827881I don't think Laki and Val have as much chemistry as Laki and John do, they hit it off immediately and she's probably John's best friend outta the whole group atm.
>>827894It's a good point, but to be fair, we're really only privy to John's perspective. We wouldn't neccisarily know if and when they hit it off. And apparently they did so well enough that Val was considering a fling with Laki.I would miss the Laki/John dynamic if Val made her settle down though. I wanna give massages.>>827869A winner takes what they want, Anon.
>>827894Yeah, that's true. Laki strikes me as the type to just be on the borderline of rapey about taking what she wants, though.>>827881Jane would probably get super jealous of other girls, grab Herb's crotch, and announce that this is hers.
>>827912Fuck you, Anon. I'm starting to like Jane more.
>>827912>announce that this is hers.That's pretty hot.
>>827917>>827925Yeeeesssss gooood. Honestly though I started liking her when Gobble started hinting at her reactions to being pursued. Which amounted to disbelief, thinking we were attempting subterfuge and trying to out do us.
>>827936If we can just get rid of the Paranoia she might be bearable to be around. Until then it is just lewd day dreaming.
>>827939I was just day dreaming her overdoing it because Laki was teasing us. I'll keep trying like when we took her out for ice cream
>>827944If Jane bullies and doesn't have a strong hatred for John, what does Laki have going for her anymore?
>>827949Lots according to Herb, a sizable chest and wide hips
>>827960Jane is right behind her in chest and hip size. Point taken though.
>>827949Eh. I don't see Jane bullying so much as just having jealous/competitive fits and draining the balls.Laki is more likely to tease and give stealth handjobs and form her own harem.
>>827949silky smooth brown skin, soft pillowy lips, rock hard abs, baby bearing hips and beautiful perky breastsand she knows how to party
>>827846Any Waifu>Anyone>Pokemon>Our Hand>A Rock>Jane
>>828059She's also really good with babby, apparently.
>>828134Well Bella likes her because she sees Laki as mom. Our Pokemon will be the canon waifu wars.
>>828136More referring to the 'bouncing Bella on a knee', playing with her all the time, and that throw-away line from Gobble saying she completely looked like a mother in the moment.
>>828127don't diss rocks, we've got the best one after all.
>>828184* Inanimate rock.
>>828127Pokemon>our handBold statement, especially considering that our hand has received the most lewdbin love so far.
>>828232I say that because we do not legitimately love our hand (we just use it for its body), and there's not a huge amount of growth potential in the relationship as a result.
>>828232Is John and righty or leftie?
>>828267But our hand has been with us the longest. Through thick and thin. Can you imagine what it would be like to lose it?Hana can.Moreover our pokemon are like our babies or our siblings. They shouldn't even be on the list at all.
>>828322Good point on the hand, I might be underrating it.Never said anything about our current Pokemon though, just Pokemon in general. And Gobble shot it down anyways. Maybe something like 'Absolutely any living creature > No waifu at all > Jane'.
so when are we gonna make a Zord from our pokemon?
>>827960Man Gamefreak knew exactly what they were doing.
>>829419Not possibleWould literally be a weird totem pole
>>829419How about for our waifus?
>>829434Its less a combination move, more a piggyback ride. Bella might appreciate it though.
>>829434so farwe just need to get some pokemon fitted for it. We could stuff Mace and Bella into a Reuniclus to act as machine guns. Add an evolved Gobble to it and you can have an armored tank with gun nests. stop trying to crush my dreams anon or the supply of butts will suffer
>>829457NoWhere would murkrow fit in that?Seeing as well probably end up catching himWhat happens if Bella evolves?
>>829474>wanting to catch our fencefuck that man, he needs to stay free to get us useful shiny shitas for bella, she act like a backpack and use vines to attack. No one will be able to sneak up on our monster
>>829486>not catching based crow after befriending it also >yfw Bella's whole line learns no whip moves
>>829486>>829521I would say maybe catch our fence, then let it decides if it wants to battle. We can just catch him then let him fuck off so someone else can't catch him.
>>829532I trust Crowbro enough to stay free. There's no need to shackle him to us, he has to be able to fly free.Plus, if we supply him with enough loot, by the end of the quest, he'll be a Honchkrow controlling all of the pokeunderworld and owe us a debt of gratitude.>>829521That's one of the biggest oversights regarding lore in the pokedex. Half of it's pokedex entries talk about poison whips
>>829556Okay thenGive him a choice If he wants to come with us then let himIf he doesn't then okay
I want crow bro, he's cool and I love his plumage
>>829567Murkrow are neat
>>829567I don't want Murkrow any more now that I know the fun-hater does.
>>829419I don't know about that, but combo moves would be cool. Like if Gobble used fling, but with Mace as the item.Would he count as a hard stone? If he used iron defense, would he be an iron ball?We'll call it the fastball special, unless that's already taken.
>>829588Jesus dude lighten up a bit
>>829588>I don't agree with a guy on X>But I agree with him about Y>So I must now hate Y because he doesn't like XI feel like a joke may have flown over my head I can't really be sure
>>829593I think I brought that up in other threads too. Plus it can work for positioning too; like throw Bella upward so she can rain Toxic Spikes down at the enemy team or something else among those lines.I feel Fling is really versatile and hope Gobble picks it up soon enough. I also feel Recycle could be fun with it too; assuming we train him to use it fast - just boomerang items right back to Gobble's hand to be thrown again.
I want to teach Mace Dig so we can combo it with Explosion for allahu ackbar
>>829646I want to focus more on turning him into a dodging machine gun.
>>829646If it's possible at all (In game it isn't) I imagine that it would be incredibly difficult to teach. He doesn't have any limbs or anything to dig with.
>>829656he could spin around really fast and drill into the earth>>829646if he can learn taunt, we can get the opponent to follow him into the hole too. Then blow up, launching the pokemon into the sky
>>829668That sounds quite entertaining, I'm going to look up his movelist later to get combo ideas
>>829556>Trust Crowbro to be free>Jane catches it
>>829685>We rescue him from Jane>He gives us a freebie as thanks.
>>829711How exactly do you plan to 'rescue' another trainer's pokemon?
>>829711>implying Crowbro would let Jane catch himescape or death, he aint gonna join the popo
>>829717Demonstrate that he wants to be free, then Jane either has to let him go or lose serious face.
>>829711>gives us a freebieBut Gobble said none of that in this quest.
>>829730So every trainer who catches a pokemon that doesn't want to be caught should either let them go or feel bad?
>>829735If the Pokemon hates them and they don't work towards improving the relationship, yes.
>>829742Sounds like that pokemon just needs to be broken in harder.Or frozen in a block of ice for a couple of days.
>>829750Get out of her mom.
>>829735If a pokemon perpetually tries to escape its trainer, you'd think that would be a serious red flag to others about the trainer's behavior.And if pokemon abuse is illegal (it is in the anime anyways), then law enforcement might indeed look into the relationship between that trainer and the pokemon that desperately tries to escape whenever it is let out.
>>829722Whoa nelly that tattoo.
>>829798wonder if Keira has one
>>829759>>829866>momAm I missing something here?
>>829875>he doesn't know
>>829875I'm guessing it's a futurama reference?
>>829845I want it so bad
>>829875>HE DOESN'T KNOWABORT SHIPABORTABORT
>>829893well, we know she has tan lines from the paintand she's all about new experiences
>>827871I don't know i feel once she get's out of her shell she'll be pretty different from Robin, who was always a bit timid even after being with Kat for awhile. And I think after an awkward first time she will show her full /d/eviant side in bed
>>829593>>829635This could be great stuff for double contest battles>>829556>>829567>>829532I like the idea of not catching Murkrow until after we've run into it a few times. Like Ash with his Sandile
>>830066I can dig it. Trade with it a few times before it just becomes convinced we are a source of infinite shiny.
>>826918That's not funny that shit can fucking kill you
>>830306Just imagine, that was the end of Herb, he's now dead. We now have to play Polu.
>>830306Yep, the quest is over with SM consuming all our lives. Gobble wanted to be subtle about Herb dying.
>>830306>survive, but never fully recover>speech is slurred>motor functions are impaired>long and short term memory lapses>only one thought remains with us through the rest of our damaged life>Bella was right, Laki is best girl
>>830368Did we fail to resist Mewtwo's memory wipe in this timeline?
>>830368Speaking of, is Bella gonna lord this over those two now?Everytime we interact with other girls, she tries to remind us of that time we spent with girls who aren't Laki and got hit in the head with a coconut.
>>830396She can try, but it was Laki that we almost fell off a cliff with twice.
>>830396Objectively, our luck has been really good while hanging out with Laki. Strange coincidence that.
>>830396how would she even do that? She cant really act it out(no arms) and cant speakshe can only cutely headbutt John's calf and soak girls' shirts. Those tactics seems counterintuitive.
>>830408she turns yandere for her pairing and sets out to rid the island of all women bar Laki
>>830419>Bella was the BBEG all alongfuck, now that would be an amazing plot twist.problem is, the first waifu to survive an attack with some manner of permanent scarring or disfigurement, would instantly rocket to the number one waifu slot
>>830453Hana already has that.
>>830453>Bella>allowing survivorsThat's a good one.
>>830456Hana doesn't have the guilt attached to the disfigurement. Thus, no waifu points awarded
>>830468Is that suppose to be hot?
>>830453It would be things that could happen to anyoneValerie falls into a coma after being hit from a falling potted plant, truly tragic
>>830494But then John will just relate to her as a coma buddy!
>>830480are you saying it's not?
>>830480the tattoos? Yesand if you remember what happened when Robin lost her eye, you can see how guilt effects /tg/. It's a powerful thing
>>830505We were already with Robin by then.>>830503The tattoos aren't even the bad part, the body just looks off.
>>830346>>830368You jest, but I'd actually really enjoy a section where we play as Polu/Jane/Gobble questing to take care of something while Herb is out of commission.What I expect to happen is some soul-searching in our brain space while Hana calls our parents or Keira gets some smelling salts.Man, any excuse to play around with other perspectives is great.
>>830533In moderation, I would rather go on the spirit journey myself.
>>830533I'm hoping Gobble is eating the coconut that KO'd John when he wakes upDon't want good food to go to waste>>830530eh, Plumeria's body is pretty long in game, art is gonna compound it
>>830549>I'm hoping Gobble is eating the coconut that KO'd John when he wakes upNah, Gob and Mace are too busy holding Bella back from attacking Keira and Hana.
>>830571You mean attacking the tree
>>830571While cutesy shipping is one thing, Bella's going to wear out her welcome in a hurry if she tries to sabotage our relationships with our friends.
>>830539Yeah, this early on looking inwards would be better. But eventually it is something I'd like to do.Although we might not get the chance to dream if Bella uses worry seed on us to wake us up.
>>830622I think in this instance we got Crit Coconut'd
>>830623I think gobble is doing a better job now of incorporating our bad luck into the quest.
>>830657I was hoping a 78 would keep us safe.
>>830661that's not how bad luck works though. you're never safe
>>830657Yeah, I like how we live under Murphy's Law and just have to react all the time.
>>830698Things are really gonna suck when we get a bad luck event and roll poorly. Granted we did ask for it.
I hope Laki, Val and Polu get the spotlight for a while. We've been having a lot of Hana and Keira, who are both great, but still.
>>831056I think Laki has had plenty also.
>>831061>completely unbiased heh
>>831065What? I think Laki is the best girl, but we have hung out with her more than anyone except Keira.
>>830706I'm thinking it's going to be something like the more successful we are, the more likely problems are going to crop up for us. That way we always feel unlucky, but problems don't snowball and get frustrating.
[I love you guys.I wanted to give a heads up that we will not run today or tomorrow, and Thursday is iffy. Sunday is a no-go too. Saturday is on, though, and the week after should be more open.It's awhile off, but during the two weeks around Christmas we should be running like non-stop or close to it.]
>>832223sweet, we love you too gobble!
>>832223Right back atcha Gobbs!These post-threads are nice to hang out in, and it's fun to brainstorm with everyone while we're not doing immediate decision making. It's cool that you drop in.Looking forwards to Christmas break!
Ugh I'm so excited for roselia/roserade now that we've got worry seed on lockdown. Bella's likely close to evolution- I'm guessing the gym might put her over if things go well. We should ask her if she's ready.
>>833444Wow, save that pic, it screams Bella to me
>>833444huh, I'd thought they evolved at level 15 or 202/3rds of our pokemon evolve with friendship. Did you plan that Gobble, or was it luck of the draw?
>>833528I doubt gobble could have planned that. It should be well known by now that at any moment the players can hop the rails and pull some unexpected stuff.Had we done things differently, our party could have been Paras, Mankey, Slugma, and a Berry pot right now. (I do wonder how Gobble picked Budew to be what was in the egg though.)Poor Herb. Bella's probably the last thing his Grandfather gave him.I wonder whatever ended up happening to the daycare? Does his grandmother run it by herself? Did it get sold? Some other relative take over?Is it waiting for Herb? Will we have to choose between accepting the family business or staying in Loanah?
>>834164Sounds like plenty of potential for Gobble certified drama there.
>>834262>move the business to LoanahDone
>>833444I hope notWe are still on the first island and only in the first few days of our questHell we haven't even left the first townI don't think we should be having evolution stuff until sometime later
>>834610To be fair, Mace is already fighting off the need to evolve. We're already doing evolution stuff. And there's no more moves left for Bella to naturally learn.Because we hatched her, and these first levels go by so quick, and we treat her well, she's probably got a pretty high happiness/friendship.Even if it's not something that happens immediately, now's a good time to start talking about it with Bella.
>>835018Eh, I feel like she may have learned a lot, but she is still not even a week old.
so what's the comfiest pokemon? I submit Altaria for consideration
>>835591That is gonna vary person to person.
>>835591I've always had a soft spot (heh) for altaria. The comfiest pokemon would have to be.... Mareep to Ampharos, Fabio is too comfy
I just realized that is John doesn't die from head trauma, his most likely end is a Beware hug if nobody warns him about them.
>>837484I guess it's a good thing that their name is a warning label then. The bewear scenes in the sun and moon anime promos look brutal.Hopefully Pikachu isn't nerfed so bad this time around.
>>837723I knew the name looked fucky when I posted. I'm just glad SM gave a focus to making the Pokemon have personality in the dex.
>>835591Okay so I have it some thought, and I think probably Reuniclus. It's like a waterbed.
Snorlax is the comfiest! Though I'd be scared of him rolling over in his sleep.
>>837863I would definitely push for one, one of the best Psychics imo
>>837863>>838042Is also joins the sphere squad.
>>838042We could give it food coloring. It would be like dying your hair.
>>838558sorry not Reuniclus
>>840053Does anyone else get a little turned on by Meiosis?
Are we going to get CPR?
>>842532Yes, from Gobble
>>842532If we got hit on the head hard enough to stop our heart, we may have other things to worry about. Like irreparable brain damage.
>>842626I seriously doubt Gobble is going to run Brain Damaged Trainer Quest.Probably running more on movie physics.
>>842632Yeah, I know. That's why I doubt we'll need cpr.
>>842626I really doubt Gobble is going to throw a health emergency at us out of nowhere
I like Hanna a lot
>>842910Yeah. She's different from Robin. More outgoing, more lewd, and so far while she's a big movie herd she's not an egghead.Really the only things she has in common is cybernetics and not being as outgoing as others. And everyone else is very outgoing.
Followup: How would our kids end up with each waifu?
>>843093>Implying Laki would hold it together that long
So, who's got Sun or Moon and what do you think so far?
>>8433367.5 / 10, too much cutscnes
>>843336moon and 8/10 too many cutscenes, but I get sidetracked by the festival plaza stuff between scenes so I don't notice it as much.
>>843336Sun, 9.8/10, everyone's hot in Alola.
>>843336Cutscenes are annoying The battles range from stupidly easy to actually kind of hardLille feels forcedOverall pretty meh
>>843093Clarify? Do you mean what sort of mother each waifu would make to our potential children?
>>843494I think he means what the kids themselves would be like depending on who their mother was.
>>843501Pretty sure hana cant have kids.
>>843518how does a car accident preclude kids if the major injuries from it were to her limbs?or did I miss some description that noted a nasty scar on the lower stomach or something?
>>843518But she had Keira read her fortune and she said she would have multiple children
>>843523She lost several limbs and had massive burns. Wouldn't be surprised if there was a lot of blunt trauma and other muckery also.>>843529Got the impression that Keira was sort of bullshiting and Hana Called her out on that. Of course, infertileness != no kids. She could always adopt or splice her DNA with someone else's or something.
>>843563plus this is pokemon, just gotta find the right pokemon or legendary artifact to fix up the problem, hell since were in an island nation theres probably some sort of fertility shrine somewhere even if its a ruin.
>>843563weird, I'd assumed that Keira saw Hana having a large family, and she assumed it meant that Hana would be the mother. I doubt we'll see which theory is right for quite a while though
>>843523I actually thought about this a bit. There's a few different things "I can't have kids." Could mean.1. Most likely, her uterus was damaged and amputated in part or in whole. She'd either be incapable of bearing a child, or it would be extremely unlikely. She could still have a child with the assistance of a surrogate mother though.2. Her ovaries were damaged or removed. With no eggs, the setting would require stem cell technology far beyond our own to create new ones. Considering Hana got her organs replaced with prosthetics and not cloned ones, she would need an egg donor. If she were missing her ovaries entirely, she'd need to be taking estrogen supplements.3. Damaged Fallopian tubes. She could have her own baby, with the assistance of science of course.4. Maybe she meant she doesn't think she'll ever be ready to have kids. Intimacy issues or something.I like to imagine that in the universe where we end up with Hana, all the other girls offer to try being surrogates, and it, miraculously, ends up working with all of them, and Herb ends up getting 4 girls pregnant without getting any action.
>>844902>I like to imagine that in the universe where we end up with Hana, all the other girls offer to try being surrogates, and it, miraculously, ends up working with all of them, and Herb ends up getting 4 girls pregnant without getting any action.You're waifus will not remain pure.Herb will not remain pure.
I wouldn't even be mad if Gobble turned the coconut that hit us in the head into a surprise Crabrawler since they love trees.
So... um... has anyone else gotten the fling TM? 'Cause Jeeze... Gobble's psychic.
>>845368I've been saying it Rotem Dex was shown, Gobble is mind leaked with Game Freak design staff or something.
>>845392There're some very striking simularities between the new games and Gobble's Quests, aren't there?
This thread seems to be sinking and my attempt to archive didn't go through.Someone want to fix that?
The old learnsets are out of date now. Serebii has the new ones, bulbapedia is still displaying gen 6 ones. For instance, snorlax now learns High Horsepower.
>>847117We already had all the movesets from the datamine.
>>847143Yeah, but it's important to note that not everywhere has integrated that information yet, especially the first search result.
>>847117We know all the movesetsAnyways any new Pokemon you guys want after the games came outI want a mankey after I got sweepd by hala's
>>847239Nothing besides the stuff I already did.
>>847239Rockruff.Rowlett.Salandit.Mudbray.Cutiefly.I could go on, but Cutiefly in particular is way better than you'd expect.Mine swept Hala no problem.
>>847269>tfw Salandit's evo is canon fetish bait
>>847276Minor drawback.Being able to Toxic anything gets it a pass.
>>847300I'd rather have most other fire types since we also already have a poison type. Still gonna say Cutiefly would be perfect.
>>847300The sea urchin thing (I forgot it's name) is better
>>847314I don't think we are talking about competitive here. Most of the alola dex sucks ass for real battles.
>>847326TrueI'm a sucker for the crabI wish he wasn't shit
>>847340If only the evolution didn't change what I liked about the first stage.
>>847269My cutiefly swept the first Trial no sweat, the lil' cutie puts in work. Named him Orion >>847108http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Pokemon%20Island%20Adventure%20Quest Some nice anon archived
>>847495Yeah, Cutiefly is a surprise stand-out.And good to see we don't have to worry about losing this thread.
>>847582>SurpriseIt has amazing stats
>>847597And then I look at vikavolt and crabrawler and wishiwashi and all I do is cry
Any favourite pokedex entries?
A guy is tweeting he's pokemon adventure from the perspective of the MC, cockfighting and child abuse ensue https://twitter.com/TrainerMax1
>>848338Mega momBut in all actuality their all pretty good thanks to based rotom dex
[Sorry about the long wait. Getting set up. Not sure how long we'll be able to go today.]
>>848622All good, glad for anything really.
