Character info pastebin coming soon/eventually (I really mean it. This week for sure)

General rules:

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

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

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

Combat mechanics are up in the air. Suggestions are welcome. 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 talked theology briefly with Keira, and trained your pokemon with Hana.

You feel a weird, hard vibration on your head, and blackness sets in from the outside of your vision. You see the world twirl in a mix of blue and green that shrinks to nothing.

“Herb!” Someone yells. It sounds like it’s being yelled from across a lake.

You can feel the vibrations in the sand as feet crowd around you. There’s some talking, but there’s no way to tell what’s being said. It fades away.

A memory from your youth springs up. It’s...

To expand, we would have been fighting over something insignificant and Herb loses his temper and hits her, maybe causing her to fall and get hurt. This would be the catalyst as to why Herb is such a friendly guy.

You smell something good. Really good. You put down the ditto you were playing with and go into your grandpa’s house, where you’ve been staying for the weekend.

“Back already?” He smiles down. His white bushy gleams from the sunbeams coming in the window. “Did you have fun with ditto?”

“Yeah huh!” You stand up on your tiptoes to see what he’s doing. “What are you making?”

“Oh this? I can let you have some, but you’ve got to help me make it.”

His deep voice and the smell and the wood cabin are all so comfy, but you’re still full of energy, bouncing around. “Okay!”

Grandpa teaches you how to make...

Would be nice to have. Also it might be possible to cook outside of a kitchen while most of the other options probably require an oven.

Also, I think you missed a word.

He teaches you the souffle. The ingredients and timing are critical, and the way to prepare it is complicated, but it comes out smelling amazing.

“Thanks!”

“Just use it responsibly.” He laughs. “There’s power in a good meal.”

“Oh grandpa. You’re silly.”

His face turns dire. “I mean it. It does things to women. She’d always insist on it on our anniversary. In fact, that’s how we conceived your...nevermind” He gives a hearty but naughty chuckle. You wonder what that’s about.

Your mind swirls again. You feel like you’re being pulled back to the real world. There’s a sense of presence kneeling over you and breathing into your mouth. Everything is foggy, but you imagine it’s stars leaning over you and caring for you. How gentle they are. How soft and pretty smelling.

Life is a dream and this spirit of stars is beckoning you to the next form of consciousness.

I'd say they don't want to pay witness to whatever shenanigns that 'tasting life' and 'seizing the universe' are going to bring.

This can either go the serious route, the hilarious route or both.

Personally, I'm hoping for both.

Your chest gets pushed in. This is confusing. It’s like a test of your fortitude from the universe. You must have passed because the otherworldy presence comes back to you.

This time you embrace it fully. You reach out to the cosmos and find them soft to the touch. At the same time, you let yourself taste the very universe itself.

You carefully explore and dance your tongue over it. You’re not sure what you’re looking for, but as a cook, you know the power of taste. Your hand thumbs the bumpy planet over the thin fabric protecting it. It gasps back at you.

“Thank you.” You mutter, feeling satisfied.

You fall back into your dream state. You’re too out of energy to wake up quite yet. The universe slips away from you again.
For a while it’s fine. it's peaceful, restful, and calm. You're safe. But it suddenly things change. It’s like there’s another presence coming at you. This one isn’t from the same place as the cosmic spirit before. It’s from somewhere else, farther beyond. It’s angry. Like a colossal snake it rapidly slithers around you. It wants something from you. It yells something in a language you don’t understand.

“I don’t understand!”

It repeats the same phrase, except louder and angrier. It bares its fangs, but it’s missing a tooth.

It's wwhy 5min votes are still a thing. Since resetting your ID is stupidly easy

Which brings us back to how to deal with them.

Gobble seems to be on the ball, so let's forget about it and let her filter them out.
>>
>>849545
Yup. Unless you posted something else before you voted. And it'd actually make the posts before the first vote is up serve a purpose.
Sucks for latecomers, but it'd cut down on samefagging well enough.

“I can’t understand you. Please. Calm down and explain what you want.” You're scared, but you're pretty sure it can't hurt you.

At least, you really hope so.

It roars at you again, knocking you over, but it backs away after. It slithers around in frustration, then comes back at you with it’s teeth bared again.

You shoot up awake.

“There he is.” The professor says. It takes you a second to figure out where you are. It’s his lab again. Keira and Hana are there too. Bella and Mace run up. Gobble gets up from resting at your feet.

“What happened?” You try to get up, but you come to a sudden jolting stop and your stuff like the spices, stones, pokedex, the large fossil, and other things make a clattering sound. You’re hooked up to a machine.

“Easy.” He lowers you down. “Nice and slow. You got conked in the head. But don’t worry. You’re vitals are looking fine. Still, you shouldn’t do anything strenuous for awhile.”

When Pokemon call for help
>>
>>849871
>>849882
Nah, pokemon can call allies for help, allowing you to pick up Hidden Ability mons as well as rarer pokemon in general. Really cool addition, and there are some predator vs prey aspects to it as well.
>>
>>849871
It doesn't turn on in the game until the first "trial" or whatever it is.

But what happens is you beat up a pokemon to low HP and it has a chance to cry for help.

http://serebii.net/pokearth/alola/route3.shtml

If you look at that and look over to right where the Eevee is, when it's in trouble, it may call for help and it has a chance to call for an espion/umbrion.

Use a move like Hold Back to keep the mon at low HP without killing eventually it begs for help.

Most of the time it will just spawn a duplicate of itself.

You can either knock out the first and then weaken the double, or save the double and keep the first. It'll eventually call again for a chance at the rarer pokemon.

Apparently if you do it up to 30 times the pokemon are guaranteed 4 perfect IV's but I have no conformation on that yet.

This is kind of horrifying. Getting flashbacks to the mermaid bone farm.

Honestly, a big part of why I'm not bothering to get the new pokemon games is because I don't find most of the designs interesting. This isn't even a "previous generations were more inspired" thing, because that's dumb. I just haven't been all that excited about the new stuff.

Jacob walks in. You remember him from before. Valerie’s dad and also the rich vispum guy who gave you and Munchlax that baco bread.

“What hit me?”

“A crabrawler.” Hana tells you. “It fell out of the tree. We didn’t see it before.”

“I’m really sorry, Herb.” Keira tells you. “I was watching for coconuts because they can fall sometimes, but the crabrawler was hidden up there and got angry we took the coconut.”

You insist it’s fine and ask what happened while you were out. Bella cuddles onto your shoulder. Mace goes onto your stomach and knocks the wind out of you. Where did Gobble get to?

They tell you how they fought off the crabrawler, Hana ran to get help and Keira stayed with you.

“Did anything else happen?”

Keira bites her lip and plays her with wooden charm. “You have interesting customs when it comes to saying thank you.”

Everyone gives her a weird look but lets it go as you describe your dream with the weird snake. They all hang on your words about it.

“That sounds like the great protector.” Keira tells you.

“I’m sure it was just a dream.” the professor tells you. “I’d be glad to check out that fossil for you and see what sort of pokemon, if any, can be revived from it.”

“Hmm.” Jacob picks up the fossil. “Perhaps we should take this to the other elders, if that’s alright with you, Herb.”

“Other elders?”

Professor Palm nods. “Yes. Jacob has been given an honorary elder title for his vispum investments and work in the community. The very first mainlander to be recognized that way. He’s practically revolutionized the economy of Loanah.”

“Professor, please.” Jacob laughs it off in that charming voice of his. “You sing my praises far too much.”

“That’s okay. I’ll do it.”

“I can help.” Keira volunteers. “We’ll do it together.”

Hana coughs.

“Hmm. Very well.” Jacob rubs his chin. “If a priestess says so, then it’s as good as done.”

The professor frowns for a second, but changes his attitude quickly to be more in line with Jacobs. “But don’t inconvenience yourselves. It’s important for young people to fully experience their journeys. There’s a lot to learn.”

“Well said.” Jacob looks down. “Oh. Now this is interesting.”

It’s Gobble. He’s offering you a coconut. There's a piece missing from it and crumbs on his belly.

“Is that the one from the tree?”

He doesn’t respond. He’s just holding it out and trying not to look at it while he slobbers.

“Is that for your Herb?” Hana asks.

Gobble nods and pushes it towards you.

You look down at the sweet little guy. That’s an incredible gesture.

His mouth starts slowly moving towards it. You quickly take it from his hands before he breaks. “Thank you, Gobble. That means a lot.” Gobble looks up at you with tears in his eyes. You pat him on the head. “I’m going to make a really nice meal out of this for everyone.”

He smiles and falls over.

“Gobble!”

“It’s alright.” Jacob tells you as he produces more baco bread. Gobble’s mouth takes it and chews it without even opening his eyes. “Quite the willpower on this one. Maybe a little too much.”

Gobble springs back up. You give him a nice hug.

“Well, I’m afraid I can’t stay.” Jacob says. “But I think I’ll be keeping my eye on you three.” He waves as he leaves.

The professor lets you use his kitchen again. Hana and Keira help as you make a delicious coconut ambrosia salad. Keira insists on picking up the extra ingredients to make up for starting the game that got you knocked out.

You and Hana talk for awhile. It’s getting late, so she’s planning on taking on the gym tomorrow.

“Do you feel ready for the gym?”

The gym's gimmick makes things into Water types. Knock one of their Pokemon into a water cannon and Bella can just sweep the place.

Also given Roggenrola don't learn Dig, I would imagine teaching it would take multiple training sessions if its even possible in the first place. I just can't see it being worth the time or effort it would take.

“Yup! I’m going first thing tomorrow morning.”

She smiles. “We can cheer each other on, then. Good luck!”

“Are you two taking on the electric gym?” Professor Palm asks as he comes into the kitchen to grab something. “Give that man a good pounding for me. Maybe that’ll get him to properly train the electricians on this island instead of allowing anyone muddle their way onto the job.”

Oh right. The equipment that didn’t work. You guess he’s still upset about that.

“You give him a hard pounding. Both of you. Really spank him good!”

Hana accidentally drops one of the pans. Luckily there was nothing in it.

Keira comes back with the rest of the ingredients you need.

“Thanks!” You tell her.

“No problem.” For some reason she looks weird, like she’s expecting something. She closes her eyes and sticks her chest out a little. You ignore it and pass her a plate. She looks confused but accepts it.

You hope you’re not missing some sort of custom. Especially since she mutters something about needing to research mainland customs better. She doesn't seem offended though, so you decide not to worry about it for now. She gives the food a quick blessing and digs in.

There’s plenty for everyone. Gobble seems to have broken and stuffs his face a lot, though. Doing dishes is a lot easier with him licking everything clean. No soaking needed. Bella only eats a little and parks herself right under a sunlamp that the professor is using for vispum samples. Mace cleans his plate, but you still aren’t quite sure how he eats.

You look over your team. Yeah. Tomorrow, you’re going to take on that gym. You have faith in these three. You just hope you’re a good enough trainer for them.


[I'm afraid that's it for me today. I have to be up really early tomorrow. I'm not sure how long I'll be out but I'll start a running as soon as I'm back in. I’m slightly more optimistic about having time to run this week.]

Nobody saw. Keira was more surprised than anything else, but a hormone filled body is going to react how it reacts, especially with the excitement of danger. She's fascinated by the idea of a whole world of different customs and has had it hammered into her how different mainlanders are. She really wants to learn without offending.

Not her whole attitude, but she definitely seems to have a bit of a complex. I imagine she has a harder time being alone with her thoughts.

Actually Hana has light skin color despite being a native, Gobble uses Chicken-chan for her character art. Also has one real leg and arm I believe.

So you guys... I've been thinking about Hana. Now I know it won't be immediately, but when we get around to trying on clothes with her next, I have an idea.

We'll ask her to pick out something that makes her feel good, but she's nervous to wear in public. We assure her that we'll go get lunch together, and that we'll wear something to put all the attention on us instead.

Then we show up in the same outfit as her. If we can pull off a skirt with confidence, so can she!

To be fair, the imperial measurement system is absolute shit.

Metric is far easier and more intuitive, both for common measures and scientific ones, and the US is the only major nation that's holding out against using it.

>>857187
The Imperial system of measurement was invented by the British.
We dropped it in favour of a system created by the French. That's how shit it is - it made us admit France got something right.

Well, we're a big country. It'd be quite the ordeal to replace all the sinage alone, not to mention speedometers, scales, weights, infrastructure for buying and selling fluids, and that's just off the top of my head. Converting units would be nice, but it's a damn lot of work and cost to replace a system which, while inelegant, does function in an internally consistent manner.
>>
>>857253
>fallacist's fallacy
>>
>>857321
True, but consider how much money is lost due to the inefficiency of having to maintain standards and infrastructure for not only the measurements we use, but the measurements that the rest of the world uses as well. We derive many of our products and wealth from association with the rest of the world, so in essence we have little to lose in converting, except for the (admittedly quite daunting) initial investment that you mentioned.

>>857322
He's got the burden of proof to demonstrate that his analogy is applicable. Just calling what I said a fallacy isn't enough to make it true.

Contractor used pound-seconds, NASA was expecting Newton-seconds. Because the contract said Newton-seconds.

But converting their technical specifications for one launch would cost hundreds of millions of dollars.

You always, always need to keep track of units, whether you're working between systems or within. You need to know if you're talking meters or nanometers, after all.

I wish male sandlet had a evo

They were clearly going with a bandit theme with them and a bandit queen for females(uses feminine charms to keep hold of the party) and a bandit King (uses force/wealth to keep lesser bandits in check and keep control) would have been a fun gimmick
>>
>>858791
Now we have Vespiqueen 2.0 that is actually good. Shame the ability isn't as useful since Salazzle is so frail and it can just use a fire move in Steel types anyways.
>>
>>858325
I still hate the fucking framerates.Seriously, also im surprised that these game are actually trying to be challenging for once. Is a good feeling that i cant just fap for hours while beating the game sideways without trying for once.

>>858804
If you think this is hard now

Imagine a monotype nuzlocke
>>
>>858814
Im not saying its super hard, i beat the game with a Ledian as one of my five mons. But i actually did get blacked out once or twice this time around. That hasn't happened to me since R/B/Y.

The framerate is fine outside of double battles.

This made my dick very sad.

In all actuality they did basically nothing wrong

Their just kids with problems like inferiority issues and abandonment issues with little funds who are led by the oldest delinquent

In fact the designs of the skull grunts are very similar to the punks
>>
>>858908
They are the punks just without the skull stuff.

They stole Nebby and gave her to the Aether assholes and tried to blow everything up cuz YA BOI!!!!!!!! wanted to get his dick wet.

After playing through the new game, I really want Herb to get a Mimikyu.

Its typing complements our current ones nicely,but really I just want cute moments where Herb helps it make its disguise.
>>
>>860434
I want a Ribombee, it's adorable and has great type coverage for us.
>>
>>860434
>touching Mimikyu disguise
>Herb living for more than 6 seconds after that.

NO!
>>
>>860434
it's even good competitively, use that free turn with the disguise to set up a swords dance and sweep!
though apparently disguise doesn't block status moves?
>>
>>860469
Touching it is fine, as long as you don't look under it.

Seeing its true form has canonically killed at least one person from shock, but there's nothing saying it wouldn't let someone else help with the disguise, especially someone it trusts.

>>860485
That would work, but like you said, disguise doesn't protect from ailments. Of course, we could give it substitute to nullify that response.
>>
>>860538
The fact Minior is immune to status makes it so much better.
>>
>>860538
yeah, saw some interesting sub sets being tossed about for mimikyu.

say, which ultra beast do you think would work best with Herb? I'm thinking celesteela or... nihilego?
>>
>>860554
None, those things are reality cancer.
>>
>>860554
Honestly, we probably have even less business catching ultra-beasts than we do legendaries. Not to mention what the other anon said about them being reality cancer isn't an exaggeration; those things are literally bad for the fabric of our reality.

In Sun you can visit his home in the ranch town and learn he wants to study fire dancing abroad. But before you can battle he has to run off to his part time job at Thrifty Mart. When you show up it is just in time to see him get fired. He then challenges you to a battle so he isn't alone. Keep in mind Captains have until they are 20 and Kiawe is one of the older looking ones.

Also Acerola says something I'd expect Keira to say after I beat her at the E4:

"You're at 3rd base, now go hit a home run. Or is this second base? I don't know how baseball analogies work."

I'm not sure if that's because I faced her 3rd specifically or not, but she said it.

I felt like the legendaries in this game were really well done. Normally I don't like to use them, but this time they felt earned.
Like, Zygarde is my baby. I want to help him grow up strong.

Zygardogo was great
>>
>>871807
I actually used Zygarde for my main team because I thought there would be plot/lore if I got enough cells.

Ahahaha nope. It's just a generic legend that you collect-a-thon for.

A mysterious datasnek that monitors and protects existence choosing to aid you could have been the coolest source of plot, especially considering the things you are fighting are basically kid-friendly lovecraftian beings and the crazy people trying to draw forth and control them (i.e. exactly the sorts of things Zygarde ostensibly exists to oppose).
>>
>>871112
Arcanine and Salazzle, oddly enough were the unexpected standouts, though Ribombe and Alolan Golem did a lot of good as well, along with Cubone. Shame it evolved too late to be much use late game.
>>
>>872115
Cubone evolves at 28, that isn't the problem. The problem is you can't get any good moves on it until right before the main game is over.
>>
>>871905
The entire reason zygarde is at alola is because he sensed weird shit gong on

The only reason he dosen't do anything is because a 11 year old started traping his body in a cube
>>
>>872148
I kept having to play during the day, so I couldn't evolve it.

Incidentally, we need a Cutiefly.

Ribombe is amazing.

General rules:

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

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

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

Combat mechanics are up in the air. Suggestions are welcome. 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.

The professor lets you sleep in his lab. He has some spare bunks all prepared. He explains that they get university students for projects on occasion.

You sleep with your three Pokemon out. The three of them lean against you until morning.

You wake up in the morning to the smell of burning. You follow the smell and find Keira struggling with the kitchen equipment. She drops pancake batter when she sees you.

“Woah! Are you okay?”

She laughs and scratches behind her head. “This is harder than it looks.” Her little nose twitches, and she turns to the side where smoke is coming from the oven. “Oh no!” She takes out charred black biscuits and sets them on the stove. The fire alarm starts going off, and a sprinkler above your head soaks you.

Professor Palm and Hana come in to ask what’s happening as Bella dances around under the water spray, Mace scrambles away from it, and Gobble opens his mouth and looks up. It takes a little time to sort everything out.

“I wanted to make everyone breakfast.” Keira explains. “Sorry!” Even her sincere apologies have a cheerful, bubbliness to them. It's the voice of someone who is used to getting in trouble but doesn't let it get them down.

You and Hana help clean up and the professor says not to worry about it. He does seem dismayed at the one single sprinkler going off and grumbles to himself to get that looked at, though.

You glance at the clock. Hana wants to go to the gym this morning before a storm hits the island later in the day. That puts a time constraint on getting ready.

You want to give your Pokemon a nice, hearty breakfast to give them a bit of a boost today. They’ll be facing a hard battle, from the sounds of it, and you might need every bit of help you can get.

When it comes to food, it’s not just about how good it tastes. It’s about how good it is for you. The right meal at the right time can make all the difference to a person or pokemon.

You’ll need to move quickly, though. What sort of meal are you going to make?


>A light meal that keeps their speed up
>A hearty, thick meal for defense
>A protein loaded meal with the spirit of attack
>A calcium rich food to bolster special defense
>Something with a lot of zinc, to help them with special defense
>A general health helping food
>An energy loaded breakfast that will keep them all, especially Mace, stamina

You grab a few things and get to work on a nice, zinc-loaded breakfast.

Keira, sensing she’s in the way, ends up retreating a bit as yous curry back and forth. You’re glad she did, because while you don’t want to be rude or hurt her feelings, someone standing in the way in a kitchen is always an annoyance at best, or safety concern at worst. She climbs her way up on top of a shelf so she can see everything while still being out of the way.

“I’ll show you how to cook later, if you want.” You offer.

Keira nods while she curiously watches you work. If she didn’t have such expressive eyes, you’d have a hard time reading her through that face paint.

You get everything done quickly and feed your Pokemon. Most goes to Gobble, but you don’t give him too much because even if he has a huge appetite, you don’t want to stuff him before the battle.

You glance over and see Hana getting ready to leave. She leans up from talking to her pokemon and waves at you. It’s time to go.

“Are you coming?” You ask Keira.

She pokes her fingers together and smiles. “I think I need to do a centering ritual. But good luck!”


>Ask her to come and do that later, if it’s not time sensitive
>Okay, see you later!
>Tell Hana to go ahead and ask Keira about the ritual
>Something else
>>
>>872708
Well, missed the start despite being here because I needed to help shift cows.

You want an encounter in the future, Gobble, there you go, moving cows. It's more work than it sounds.

Anyway:

Hobby farm, but we run a few head of cattle. It helps keep the bills paid when we do sell them. They usually go for around $900 a head on average.

If you want a potentially hilarious encounter, put it down as an option. Cows never cooperate.

There were a few moments I'd have said were quite like this quest.

When you came home several times your mother would ask how far you'd gotten and then added, 'I mean the trial of course'.

Seems like she was asking whether you'd slept with Lillie or not.

“Alright. I’ll see you later, then!” You run to catch up with Hana.

She looks nervous. You have to admit, so are you.

You arrive at the gym and see the person you battled before hanging outside with his Voltorb. He gives a cool, casual wave as he leans against the wall. The locals are all preparing for the storm you can’t see any sign of. You think you can feel a slight change in the air today compared to yesterday, but that could be your imagination. Everyone else seems to, though.

You both enter in the front door. You hold it open for your pokemon to follow in. You were worried that maybe you had overfed them before the fight, but they seem fine. The jog over here helped.

“Welcome!” A large islander with welding goggles and an open electrician’s suit yells out without looking. He’s fiddling with a pile of gadgets on a table. “Come to challenge the gym, have you?”

“Uhhm. Yes sir.” You have no idea what the protocol is here.


“Sir?” He chuckles and looks over. “You must be new here. Oh. And you’re..” he snaps his fingers “Hana, right?” He looks her over and whistles. His eyes darting between her artificial parts, even under the concealing clothes she has on.

She meekly looks at the ground and there’s an awkward moment.

“Right. Sorry. So.” He claps his hands “You two are looking for a badge, huh? Well, you’re going to have to earn it. This is a gym where careful planning ahead makes all the difference. Blind fiery passion or brute force won’t work here. Are you ready?”

You and Hana both mumble a general agreement.

He gives an exaggerated exasperated gesture. “Come on! Are you ready!”

You’re both a little louder this time. It’s still not what he was hoping for, though.

“Well I guess I won’t have to worry about fiery passion.” He jokingly punches at your gut. “Okay, which of you wants to go first?”

Hana looks unsure either way.

Laki’s comment about you being secretly badass jumps into your head. You’ve never really been praised for being badass or manly or tough. You remember the kabutops you scared off, and that fleeting feeling of rivalry when battling Polu.

Why are you hesitating? You’re a man, right?

“I’ll go first!” You almost shout as you step forward. That was louder than you intended.

He smiles. “Alright. As the gym leader and chief electrical engineer of our new hydroelectric power plant, I accept your challenge...uhh, what was your name?”

“John, but I-”

“Jonbudai!” He loudly declares.

You raise your finger to correct him but he’s already showing you to your spot and going over the rules. It’s just standard battle rules. No attacking trainers, no using potions, that sort of thing.

You look at the battle area. It’s a wide, flat area. There’s a large stone pillar in the center, and about a foot high barrier lining the sides. It must be there to keep water in when the water cannon gets used.

“I like to do double battles, Jonbuddai. Do you have four pokemon?”

You shake your head. “Three.”

“Alright then. A double battle with three pokemon per side sound good?”

>>
“Sounds great!” You narrowly avoid cracking your voice.

“Eager, huh?” He slaps you on the back. “Good. Get ready. I’ll go to the other side and we can get started.”

You starts walking over to the other side of the arena.

You kneel down to your three pokemon. Mace looks eager, despite his macho brace. Gobble doesn’t seem to care one way or the other right now. Bella is happy but a little oblivious to her surroundings. You love how she lights up whenever you pay attention to her.

You give Gobble and Bella each one of the Sitrus Berries. You figure if there’s a battle that needs them, it’s a gym battle.

Mace has been handling his energy well since wearing the brace, but you might want to take it off for the fight. It might give him the freedom of movement and extra bit of energy he needs to win. Then again, it might also cause him to accidentally loose some energy at the wrong time.

The brace can come off when we learn explosion.

You think to yourself for a second, and nod. Yeah. This is good. You’re ready. Definitely, 100%, without a doubt, ready. You’ve got this.

“Ready?” He shouts from his side. He got there quick.

“I think so.” You gulp.

“Gobble, Bella, you’re up!” You point forward. Gobble pushes himself up while bella happily runs out onto the field.

He sends out his two pokemon too. A Pachirisu, that you didn’t realize were found on this island, and a Heliolisk that the technician told you about. He likes to use Electrify.

He sees your lack of reaction about the small squirrel pokemon. "Most people are surprised to see a Pachirisu, but we met when I was going to university on the mainland." He emphasizes that last part.

Heliolisk coughs.

“But Heliolisk here is my first pokemon. Caught right here on this island. We make a great team, don’t we, buddy?”

Heliolisk nods.

“Now, let’s go!”

You look to Bella first. She’s running forward eagerly.

“Pachirisu, Swift! Heliolisk, Electrify it!”

The two pokemon move with incredible speed. Pachirisu’s Swift turns electric before striking both of your Pokemon. It slaps against Gobble’s belly for some light but noticeable damage. It’s not very effective against Belladonna.

“Huh. I thought that one was a bug type.” He lifts his hard hat a little. ”Like the mainland version of a Metapod or Kakuna or something.”

Bella harrumphs and the unintentional insult. Despite the blow to her pride, you're glad he said that. You forgot that Buduw's aren't native to this region. As a shiny pokemon, she must be doubly confusing to locals, even if he's travelled before.

“Bella, don’t worry about it. Use Worry seed on Pachirisu!”

She quickly leans forward and fires it off at the small electric pokemon. It’s not amazing, but it lands. And that’s all that matters

“I’ve never seen that move before!” His voice booms with excitement. “But it doesn’t even look like it hurt. How are you feeling, Pachirisu? Not poisoned or anything, are you? No Leech Seeds?”

Pachirisu looks itself over for the effect of the attack. Finding nothing, it looks back and shrugs.

“Well that’s worrisome.”

Gobble, meanwhile is charging forward. You notice the large water cannon on the wall suddenly starts tracking him now instead of Pachirisu. It looks like it targets whoever is closest to it.

“Focus Punch! Aim for that pillar!”

"The pillar?"

Gobble concentrates and lines up his attack as he charges forward. Heliolisk and Pachirisu, not being in any directed danger, don’t pay him much mind. Especially since the pillar becomes cover between them as he closes in.

He pulls his fist back and BAM! The pillar turns into hundreds of small rocks that shotgun in the direction of the two electric pokemon. They throw their arms up as they’re pelted relentlessly in the rock storm.

When it’s over, it becomes clear that his side of the arena is covered in rocks, stones, and pebbles. It’ll slow down anyone going through it. A cloud of dust starts spreading out, giving visual cover.

Bella is ready to follow up while they lower their arms.

The water cannon looks ready to fire. Gobble and Heliolisk are equally close to it.

[Don't mind me. Figuring out who the water cannon is soaking. 1 for Heliolisk and 2 for Gobble]

Seems a shame to waste a decent roll like that though.
>>
>>874461
Maybe, but this still means Gobble isn't getting soaked.
>>
>>874465
Well if I rolled a 100 when nothing was called for that would suck, but nothing was called for.

>>874469
But it means we have to hit it with a worry seed like now

No, Ultra Beast are why it was made.

>>874509
I like it, but there are better sun & moon pokemon.

>>874513
I mean, it could open up the story more? Or maybe it could've been made for any number of reasons.

I honestly just think it's a cool mon

“Bella! Pin him down with Pin Missile!”

Bella aims and fires a hellish torrent of needles at Heliolisk, keeping it holding it’s arms up to defend. Combined with the stones all around it, it’s not moving from where it stands. It looks like it’s starting to hurt.

“Heliolisk! Parabolic Charge!”

Electric charges blast from it, hitting everyone in the arena. Pachirisu looks confused as it’s hurt from it.

“Pachirisu. Charm it!”

The little electric pokemon gives bella a cute look. Bella’s face turns from determined to wide eyed fascination. Her Attack lowers drastically.


Heliolisk is hit with a heavy water blast. It’s soft enough not to hurt. But something seems weird. It looks like it’s being refreshed from it.

“Dry Skin!” He tells you. The perfect ability for this gym.”

This is bad. With Parabolic Charge and Dry Skin, he’s gone from hurt to fine.

The stream of water slows to a trickle and you hear a loud clunk.

Gobble looks back to you. What do we do now?
