>>898861[Yosh! Pokemon time is go!]
>>898861This calls for a celebration
“Well I have to say, I am impressed, Jonbuddai. Very few people are able to get their first badge at my gym. I, Kalty Una, the Electric Storm, chief engineer of our islands tidal electric project, and native citizen, congratulate you.” He really emphasises the titles. He offers you an arm up.“Now, I know we didn’t get a chance to see it in action, but Volt Switch is a great move, Jonbuddai. It lets your pokemon attack and go back to their pokeball right after. Great for switching in a battle. Use it wisely though, since your pokemon will have to switch whether they want to or not.”The technician asks Kalty something technical about the water cannon as he tweaks something on it from a ladder.You quickly consult your pokedex while that’s going on. From a quick check, it doesn’t look like any of your pokemon can learn Volt Switch.>Accept it and thank him>Ask if you can get a different TM>If so few people win here, why doesn’t he make it easier?>Correct him about your name>Something else
>>898947>>Accept it and thank him
>>898947>Accept it and thank him
>>898947>Accept it and thank him>>Correct him about your name"My friends call me Herb."
>>898947>>Accept it and thank him>Correct him about your name
>>898947>Accept it and thank him>Correct him about your name
>>898947>Accept it and thank himNo need to be a prat; getting TMs your team can't use is practically a tradition anyways.
>>898947>Accept it and thank him>Give him a heads up that the Professor is on a war path for him
>>898947>our islands tidal*island's or islands', depending on if it's just this island or multiple.
You hold the TM. “Thanks. I really appreciate it.”“Don’t worry about it.” He tells you. “You earned it, Jonbuddai.”You raise a finger. “Umm, actually, my friends call me Herb.”“That’s great, Jonbuddai.” He steps in around you and cups his hands. “Hana, you’re up next! Head on over to the challenger area.” You feel completely dismissed.Hana springs up from her spot in the bleachers. She gets confused on her way on how to get from there to where you were standing, since there’s a wheelchair ramp that makes a winding path. It’s not too complicated, but she’s feeling the pressure of having all eyes on her.“No! Go around- Yeah. No not down there, you’ve got to turn to- No! The other way! Not- Yeah! There.”She finally arrives at the right spot. The gym leader looks down at you. “I wouldn’t recommend watching from here, unless you want that hair to get even spikier.”Oh right! You quickly get up and head to the bleachers. You need to pass by Hana to get there.>Just wish her luck>Give her advice about the water cannon>Tell her to keep abilities like Volt Absorb in mind. His pokemon seem to have a lot of those>Suggest she maybe do more training first. You got lucky>Something else
>>899149>>Just wish her luck
>>899149[What pokemon does Hana currently have on hand?]
>>899149>Just wish her luckShe's a big girl, she'll be able to handle herself.
>>899149>Just wish her luck
>>899149>Just wish her luckI hope Herb cheers for her like Hana did for us, that was pretty awesome.
>>899149>Just wish her luckSo I've been thinking, and while we've been talking about cool bugs, what would people think of a Miltank for Herb? MooMoo milk would be a pretty nice ingredient to have on hand, after all.>>899157Togepi and Tirrouga.
>>899204I've always thought that Miltank was a really goofy Pokemon. Plus Munchlax has got the Normal type covered. I like where your head is at tho
>>899149>Just wish her luckShe was watching the fight the whole time, so I feel most of the others could come across as a bit insulting. We should just trust in her.>>899204We already have Gobble for Normal types; though I do like the idea in general. Its why I liked the idea of a Tropius and also wouldn't mind something like a Honey Gather Cutiefly (among other reasons).
>>899225>>899245Hm... well, Skiddo/Gogoat can learn milk drink too, plus we don't have a transport mon. I like the honey gather idea too, though combee/tediursa can have it too. I'd like to see John have a Haojin Exeggcutor with Harvest for berry duplication too. Can't think of any other food mon right now. Maybe Crabrawler/Crabominable. They regrow their arms.
>>899245I wish gobble was another type so we could get a chansey.... Chansey is one of my favorites
>>899273You keep listing Pokemon we already have type coverage from, also no arm ripping.
>>899273Oh god, cutting off a Pokemons arm for it to grow back later!! Oh god! I do like the idea of a skiddo, it could be a fun grass pokemon. Shame that Bella sorta fills that roll already.I could really get behind a female combee or an exeggcute. Exeggcute is a classic, and the Alola Exeggutor is Grass/Dragon, which might be an interesting type to have.
>>899273>we're stranded on a island alone>befriend a Crabrawler by giving it a raw fish poisonous to humans>it rips it's own arm off>we both get dinner
>>899295I'm... pretty sure it's more of a molting thing...>>899296I'd really rather have Kantonese Exeggcutor. I want Harvest! Plus I have a fondness for those derpy faces.
“Good luck.” You put a hand on her shoulder. Her eyes go from the floor to yours.“Thanks.” She smiles. She gently grabs the hand you’re resting on her shoulder and holds in between the both of you.For some reason her smile becomes solid and she’s freezing up.“Are you okay?”“YES!” She shouts. She coughs and looks away. “Yes. Thanks.”You go and sit down to watch. You take your pokemon out so they can watch too. Gobble is awake again, but not moving much. You pat him on the head.While that’s happening, you can hear Hana and the gym leader yelling back and forth to each other. He’s agreeing to two pokemon each.Hana throws out her two pokemon, Tirtouga and Togepi. The drained arena still has a little wetness to it, but nothing major. Both pokemon look back to her. She gives an awkward thumbs up that morphs into an even more awkward wave.He throws out a Graveler and Jolteon. You quickly consult your pokedex on them. Jolteon you know about, since sometimes people comment on your hair and make a comparison. Graveler you thought you knew about, but it doesn’t look like how you remember. Are they electric here?>Cheer as loud as you can and encourage your pokemon to do the same>Stay quiet and watch. Try to learn something and not be a distraction>Chat up the mom and her kid beside you>Something else
>>899297>it rips it's own arm off
>>899319>>Chat up the mom and her kid beside you
>>899319>>Cheer as loud as you can and encourage your pokemon to do the sameTake our energy Hana
>>899319>Cheer as loud as you can and encourage your pokemon to do the same
>>899319>Chat up the mom and her kid beside youNo need to distract Hana. We can still cheer when she gets knockouts though.
>>899319>>Cheer as loud as you can and encourage your pokemon to do the same
>>899319>>Chat up the mom and her kid beside youMILF route go!
>>899319>Cheer as loud as you can and encourage your pokemon to do the sameDamn I really want to know what is up with the kid and mom, but friends first.
>>899319>Chat up the mom and her kid beside youHellooo!
>>899319>>Cheer as loud as you can and encourage your pokemon to do the sameSwear vociferously
>>899319>Chat up the mom and her kid beside youIf we don't, we'll regret it
>>899319>>Chat up the mom and her kid beside youWhat a nice young man.
>>899319>Stay quiet and watch. Try to learn something and not be a distraction
Tirtouga uses Aqua Jet and hits Graveler dead on, but takes a Thundershock to the back from Jolteon! Togepi uses Yawn on it.“Tirtouga!” Hana shouts.Graveler uses Rock Polish.“Go Hana!” You leap up and shout. “You can do it! Go Tirtouga and Togepi, too!”Bella gets up and starts cheering too, in her out way. She mostly jumps and makes cute noises. She gets really excited and uses Water Sport, making producing a fine, sparkly explosion of water in the air.Mace, who was also cheering in his more restrained way, grumbles at her and hops under the bleachers for cover. He gets over it quickly and makes some enthusiastic kick and tackling motions as he watches, though.Jolteon has fallen asleep and both Togepi and Tirtouga are ganging up on Graveler. It hits Togepi with Rock Throw, but takes a Water Gun from Tirtouga. When it turns around to face the turtle pokemon, Togepi sneaks in with a Sweet Kiss.Hana is doing great!You look to the woman and her child. “So, come here often?”Her eyebrow raises and she looks down at you smugly. “Smooth, kid?”“Smooth what?” You’re confused.She laughs. “I come here too often.” She laments. “Somebody doesn’t remember his lunch.” She holds out a basket and looks over to the gym leader. “Or much of anything else, outside of work.”Her kid leans over to pet Gobble. He’s a little rough, though, and it’s annoying Gobble.>Keep cheering! Hana needs your support!>Tell the kid to stop>Ask her to tell her kid to stop>Ask her about the gym leader>Something else
>>899495>>Keep cheering! Hana needs your support!
>>899495>>Ask her to tell her kid to stop>Ask her about the gym leader
>>899495>>Ask her about the gym leader>>Something elseAsk the kid to pet more gently
>>899495>Ask her about the gym leaderAlso >>899508Have the kid pet more gently.
>>899495>Show the kid on how to pet Gobble gentler.>Ask her about the gym leader
>>899495>Ask her about the gym leader
>>899495Tell the kid to chill a bit. Pet lighter. Or tell him how gobble likes to be pet.>Ask her about the gym leader
>>899495>Ask her about the gym leaderMaybe tell the kid that he's annoying Mace.Their's enough implication there to be going on with.
I just finished Pokemon Moon thus morning, and I'm really glad to see you running again, Gobble. How have you been, besides busy?
>>899495>in her out way
Maybe Herb can spew out a few other lines that sound like pick up lines.Maybe: Does he remember you?Or.. If he doesn't eat at home you'd love to.Or something about a home cooked meal...
>>899495>making producing a fine
>>899273But Bella covers all of that shit and moreIt would be really repetitive Crabominable is fucking useless and looks like shitI would be fine with a crabrawler I would also be fine with a stuffle
I love the relationship of an innocent guy like Herd being controlled by sick fucks like us, trying to act in character for an innocent guy like Herb.
>>899495>Keep cheering! Hana needs your support!>Show kid how to pet Gobble gently
>>899694One of the more challenging role-play I'd imagine for us.
>>899694It adds to his whole awkwardness such as when we give fashion tips thinking we're being helpful when most of the girls dont see it that way
>>899694Not everyone here is a degenrat But it is a challenge of sorts
[Sorry about delay. Update incoming]
“You’re married to the gym leader?”“In theory.” She sighs. She catches herself. “It’s always the power station or this gym. Who needs a gimmick like this to battle children?” She waves the lunchbox at the water cannon and arena in general. “Oh, I’m sorry.” She offers you an apologetic smile.“It’s okay.”“You’re a sweet teenager, for a mainlander. Respecting your elders like that.”“You don’t look like an elder.”She laughs and leans in closer. “Oh, you’re good. This is the kind of attention a doting wife should be getting.”You laugh too, but nervously.Gobble’s annoyed sound draws your attention. Her little girl is really bothering him.“Oh hey. Gobble doesn’t like that.” You shift over. “Here, do it like this.” You rub his belly.Gobble enjoys it despite himself and throws his arms and legs wide to give you more access. The little girl pets him that way and he tolerates it.“Dear, don’t bother other people’s pokemon.” The mother says while not really watching. “Play with Pichu.”She starts petting Pichu the same way you showed her to pet Gobble. But Pichu really seems to hate it.There’s a bright flash. The battle is still raging. Graveler is soaked and asleep now and Hana’s pokemon are ganging on up Jolteon. It looks like things are really coming down to the wire. Oh wow! Tirtouga just barely avoided an attack and Graveler ended up being shocked instead!Hana looks around to see if everyone saw that.>YEAH! GO HANA!>Ignore the match. Tell the kid that she’s bugging her Pichu>Point it out to Mace. That sort of move is what you should work on.>Something else
>>899796>>YEAH! GO HANA!
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!Hana a cute.
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!>Point it out to Mace. That sort of move is what we should work on
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!I think the mom's got a handle on her kid.
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!I can totally see Herb standing and jumping up and down saying this. Haha
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!Get lost in the excitement. Hana is doing great.
>>899796>YEAH! GO HANA!>Point it out to Mace. That sort of move is what you should work on.
>>899796If Herb never managed to accidentally seduce someone I will be very surprised.
>>899934He may already be well on his way with at least Hana.
>>899963Lake and Val were considering it too. Keira's a pretty free spirit. All that's left is Jane and Polu.
“GO HANA!” You leap up! She’s facing a really tough battle but she’s really doing well.She lights up when she looks at you. “Fucking right!” She shouts, then covers her mouth. She sounds like a completely different person when she swears. She goes back to directing her pokemon.There’s a flash and zap off to your side. You see Pichi running off and hopping out the high window, and the little girl holding her hand.“Tatia!” The mother yells and examines her child’s hand. To your relief, it looks perfectly fine. In her mom’s eyes though, you get the feeling that it looks like her hand got blown off.“Pichu!” the little girl little girl starts crying.Despite the commotion and battle, it immediately gets Kalty’s attention. He turns serious. “Jolteon, helping hand. Graveler, Self-Destruct.” He starts walking away from the arena and towards you without even watching the results. Togepi and Tirtouga are immediately and without question knocked out. Jolteon is just healed from the electrical blast, probably thanks to Volt Absorb.Hana’s high spirits drop. She stands there, completely stunned.“What happened?” He demands as he closes the distance to you.“I don’t know! Pichu just zapped her and ran away!”“I...” you look down, “I think she pet Pichu wrong. See, I was showing her how to pet Gobble, because he likes it on his belly, but-”“You were supposed to be watching her!” He says as calmly as he can manage, not wanting to scare his kid.“Oh, so now you care about who's watching your child?” She also does her best not to say it too loudly, but it doesn’t help.“Look, it doesn’t matter. We need to find Pichu before that storm hits.”The window that Pichu jumped out of flaps in the window. You can see heavy clouds outside, but no rain yet.>What about Hana? That wasn’t fair.>You’ll help look. >Slide away and go console Hana>Something else
>>899989Keira will come around in time.
>>900004>>You’ll help look.>But Hana deserves a rematch given what happened, fair?
>>900004>You'll help look.But>What about Hana? That wasn’t fair.
>>900004>>What about Hana? That wasn’t fair.>>You’ll help look.
>>900018Do gyms not offer rematches anyways?
>>900004>>You’ll help look.Wow, gym leader got fucking serious
>>900004>Slide away and go console HanaIf we finish with that then we might offer to find the missing pokemon
>>900004>You’ll help look.>But Hana deserves a rematch given what happened, fair?
>>900004>Slide away and go console HanaNo need to get into that hornet's nest>Offer to help look
>>900004>Slide away and go console HanaThat was brutal. Hana didn't deserve that. If he had other things to do than test her he should have just called the match.
>>900004>>Slide away and go console HanaHis kid got hurt and there's a baby poke out in what's about to be a massive storm. I suspect he gives zero fucks about 'fair' right now.
>>900004>Slide away and go console Hana>You'll help lookPoor Hana she was doing her best...
>>900004>>Slide away and go console Hana
>>900004>you'll help look>what about Hana? That wasn't fairWowGym leader went from chill to BRUTAL in literally a fucking second
>>900066When your kid is in danger man.... Shit gets serious
>>900004>Slide away and go console Hana>You’ll help look. Want to argue too, but I doubt he cares about what's fair or not right now until the problem is solved. After that we should him an earful though; I feel like doing that to somebody just starting out is way out of line for a gym leader.
>>900042Yeah, that was pretty shitty of him. Being worried about your kid and needing to do something else is fine, but there were much better ways to handle that than "lol your pokemon faint."It came across as him taking his anger out on a challenger.
>>900071Yes but nuking a challengers team out of nowhere and showing that you were just playing around with them is kind of unnecessary when all you could have done is just cancel the match for now
[Okay, looks like Herb is going to help search, but it seems split on whether Herb is going to stand up for Hana to the gym leader, or not get involved right now and instead just console her. This is not a quote-only vote due to IDs, but it is 5 minutes]>stand up>console
>>900117>consoleWe can stand up when there isn't a young Pokemon lost in a storm
>>900117Console now, confront tomorrow/when Pichu is found.
consoleHana comes first
>>900117>>console>>900131I agree with this.
>>900117Console for now, because Hana needs a friend right now and Pichu needs to be rescued. Stand up for her once things are safer.
>>900117>consolestand up later when the dude isn't pissed.
Obligatory "I'm not a samefag I just got here late" post.Also Helping Hand + electrified Self-Destruct is a disgusting combo; I'm always impressed with the crazy strategies Gobble comes up with for the NPCs.
Is there a commission we can report this guy to or?
>STAB Helping Hand Galvanize Self-destructDamn, that's 585 base power. It was super effective on tirtouga as well. We should probably be checking for permanent injuries ar this point.
You slide away from the bickering couple. You’re not really comfortable with confrontation like this. You want to help search for Pichu, but you think it’s best to check on Hana first.Hana is still standing there, looking blankly at the arena. Everything was going so well, and he just ended it without effort. All the gains she was making were just what he was allowing.Graveler is laying out on the field. He’s not in pain, but he looks very pooped.Jolteon, who was checking on Tirtouga, briskly walks over to Togepi. Both pokemon are fine, going by what the gym leader taught you to look out for, but completely unable to battle.Hana starts walking over to her pokemon, but hasn’t said anything.>Tell her you thought she was doing great.>Say it’s your fault. You put the Pichu thing in motion>You’re sure she’ll win next time>Give her a hug>Tell her that the gym leader is a jerk>Double check Tirtouga, just in case>Something else
I'm just glad that our Gobble wasn't the one that hurt the girl, can you imagine the shitfest that would've caused
>>900234>>Say it’s your fault. You put the Pichu thing in motion
>>900234>Say it’s your fault. You put the Pichu thing in motionNever lucky
>>900234>>Tell her you thought she was doing great.But I guess these gym leaders really are on another level. Still that was a bit of a jerk thing to do.
>>900203I think it was galvanized, actually. Makes it an even faster, more powerful combo. Volt absorb makes all the crueler.I think the anger doesn't just come from his disrespecting Hana by walking away during the match without a word. That clearly isn't a first-gym level tactic. If he thought that were appropriate, he would have used it at the start of the match. As it stands, it doesn't really measure the trainer's skill or power. We'll give him a chance to apologize, and if he hasn't once things are safe, we'll let him know as much. Give him a telling-off for what almost happened to Mace, too.
>>900234>Tell her you thought she was doing great.>Say it’s your fault. You put the Pichu thing in motion
>>900234>Give her a hug>Tell her you though she was doing great>Double check Tirtouga, just in case
>>900234>Give her a hug>Tell her you thought she was doing great.Personally I think the saying it's Herb's fault is sorta demeaning to the good battle Hana just had. She should be proud, she was doing well.
>>900234>Tell her you thought she was doing great.>Give her a hugOh Hana...
>>900234>>Tell her you thought she was doing great.>>Give her a hug
>>900224Galvanize boosts the move by another 20%
>>900234Adding to >>900246Against Hugs
>>900234>You’re sure she’ll win next time>"It was an emergency, just talk to him later and I'm sure he'll make it right."
>>900234>Tell her you thought she was doing great."Tirtouga was pretty spry for being dead so recently!"
>>900234>give her a hug>double check Tirtouga, just in caseEven if you are just testing them, it's kind of dickish to not take your opponent seriously like that. I bet being crushed right out wouldn't be as bad as thinking you were doing well only to find out that they obviously weren't even trying.Also, we really should check on Tirtouga just to be safe; an inattentive selfdestruct with all the bonuses you can think of might have been dangerous to a low-level mon.
>>900234>Tell her you thought she was doing great.>Give her a hug>Tell her that the gym leader is a jerk
>>900234>Say it’s your fault. You put the Pichu thing in motion
Hana checks on her Tirtouga, apologizes to it, then puts it back in it’s ball. She does the same for Togepi, then mumbles an apology to you too.“You don’t have anything to be sorry for. Especially not to me. I thought you were doing great.”“No I wasn’t.” She looks down. “And I am sorry. We trained together and I let down my pokemon and you. I was just wasting everyone’s time.”“It’s my fault. I set everything in motion with Pichu.” You explain about the belly rubs.“That’s not your fault.” She tells you. “I would have lost anyway. I just don’t have wh-”You can’t stand hearing her say that. You cut her off with a hug.Hana freezes for a moment, then relaxes, then hugs you back.“It’s okay.”You both hold each other for what feels like a really short, but really long time.You hear a phone ring and look back to the gym leader. He flips it open. “Now? I thought we had preparations for...no. I understand. I’ll be right down.” He hangs up. “I have to go. The station is having problems and with the storm coming they need me.”“But what about Pichu?” She asks.You step forward. “I’ll look for Pichu.”Hana steps forward. “Me too.”He looks the two of you over. You see his stressed face soften when he sees Hana’s watery eyes. “Are you sure?”You nod.He hesitates, but agrees. “Okay. But if things get bad you two come back and get to shelter. Now look, Pichu’s tend to gravitate to shelter when they’re scared. But, they also like to be away from people and other pokemon. They also like to be near electricity in general.” He breaks down a list of a few locations Pichu might be at.>Great! Go looking.>Wait, you should heal your Pokemon first. What if there’s trouble?>Hana should go find the others, you’ll start looking>Tell him that he owes you if you find Pichu>Say you’re sorry for causing this mess>Something else
>>900435>>Hana should go find the others, you’ll start lookingMore eyes
>>900435>Great! Go looking.
>>900435>>Hana should go find the others, you’ll start looking
>>900435>>Great! Go looking.
>>900435>Wait, you should heal your Pokemon first. What if there’s trouble?If he doesn't apologize at all when things have settled, I say we turn in our badge. If that tactic was used on us, we would have been creamed. It's not right to keep it if he was holding back with us where he wouldn't with someone else.
>>900435>>Wait, you should heal your Pokemon first. What if there’s trouble?he could give us a revive at the least for Hana's pokemon
>>900435>Hana should go find the others, you’ll start lookingLet's form a search party.
>>900435>Hana should go find the others, you’ll start looking
>>900435>Wait, you should heal your pokemon first. What if there's trouble?>Hana should go find the others, you'll start looking
I feel we shouldn't send Hana off so we can make sure she's alright and doesn't lose her fighting spirit
>>900435>Wait, you should heal your Pokemon first. What if there’s trouble?>Say you’re sorry for causing this messAsk if there're any isolated substations nearby.
>>900435>>Wait, you should heal your Pokemon first. What if there’s trouble?
>>900435>Great! Go looking.Maybe do some quick healing if we have any potions on us, but if not Bella is still in decent condition (I think) should anything happen.
>>900435[Oops. Forgot picture]
>>900435>Wait, both Hana and Herb should heal our Pokemon first. What if there's trouble?>Hana should go find the others, you'll start looking
>>900450>>900469I agree with both of these. Stick with Hana, and tell the gym leader off if he doesn't apologize once we've found pichu.
>>900435>Stick with Hana>Text the others for help>Confront the gym leader about why that was bullshit later. But definitely confront him.
>>900519Oh, yeah, texting them is a good call. Add that to my vote, too.
>>900521Agreed, change 2nd part of >>900502we should keep Hana with us
>>899532[Sorry, forgot to answer. There's been pretty much nothing besides busy. Like holy dang. I've been keeping my plants alive though so that's good. And exciting.]
Changing >>900456to>>900519Probably too late by now, but still.
>>900534Hey, at least those plants know they can rely on you. I'm sure they're very thankful.
Gobble come back from the dead
“We should ask everyone else for help, and get healed up.” You try sending a text, but your Pokedex is showing no signal. You look out to the heavy clouds.“I can get them.” Hana says. “I probably don’t even need to get too close. Just a shorter range.”“Are you sure?”“I won’t be long.” She says. “And I can run pretty fast.” She mumbles, not wanting to draw too much attention to the details.“Are there any isolated substations nearby?” Your mind races for places the pokemon could be.Kalty opens a case and hands you a technical sheet. “Yeah. Good thinking. Right along this line here. Just follow along these wires.” He hitches the case up and grabs the sheet back.. “Sorry. I need it.”“What about healing our pokemon?”He grimaces. He doesn’t really think it’s necessary, but doesn’t argue it. “There’s a healing machine in the back.” He motions the technician to help you out, kisses his daughter on her forehead, then begrudgingly his wife, and leaves.Hana hands you her Pokemon and takes off, too. “I’ll follow the line and catch up when I get back.” You’re pretty surprised at how assertive she’s gotten. And wow, she runs fast!The technician opens the back door for you and revs up the machine. The back room is a bit disorganized and dusty. You spot what looks like an emergency healing kit under some stuff in the back. The technician already left, though.

>>900596>Put in Gobble and Hana’s Pokemon, then leave. No time to wasteOr just skip healing entirely for now (not that that option will win at this point); really don't feel it will be that important. Mostly I'm just a bit concerned about leaving them alone in the machine for however long this will take.

>>900629If all else fails we could ask the technician or misses to grab them fifteen minutes from now, assuming they're not going into a storm shelter or something. Or have someone lock up the machine.What could go wrong?

You put in Gobble and Hana’s pokemon, scribble a quick note, and take off. It’s already getting really windy. As you run out, you feel a drop.Your eyes shoot up to the wires above, and you follow. You hope Pichu’s okay. You can’t help but feel a little guilty for your involvement. And your sense of injustice is also nagging you about how he handled ending his battle with Hana because of it.You put those feelings aside for now and check under the first substation. At least, that’s what you assume this thing is. You don’t see anything, though. You get up and run towards the next one.The rain starts coming down. You slow down to a fast walk as your legs get tired. In your slower pace, you notice a small cave. It only becomes visible when the wind blows the bushes really hard. You could go check it out, but you might just be wasting time, and if Hana or the others come by she’ll probably go right past you. It looks like a tight fit, too.Then again, it seems like where you’d go hide if you were a small pokemon.You thumb over Mace’s pokeball. You could ask him to help. He’s lived on this island his whole life, and he seemed pretty independent before you caught him.>Go in.>Go in, but leave Mace on the path in case hana comes by>Send Mace in to check it out and keep going.>Keep going. Pichu probably never ever saw it>Something else
>>900680>Go in, but leave Mace on the path in case hana comes by
>>900680>Keep going. Pichu probably never ever saw it>But go slow, and once people catch up send someone to check the cave out.
>>900680>Send Mace in to check it out and wait on the path in case he finds Pichu in there quickly or Hana comes by.He can get into small spaces better than we can.
>>900680>Roggenrola has sensitive hearing and can hear sounds that are inaudible to humans. Have Mace act as a radar and listen for Pichu's cries (and any other odd sounds)Probably wont work tho, due to blowing wind
>>900680Have mace check it out and stay on the path
>>900699I second this. He might be able to tell if anything is in there from not too far in.
[Alright. I'm going to have to leave it here. We'll pick things up earlier tomorrow. I wish I could start first thing, but like today I still have to work. I appreciate everyone being patient with my shitty schedule. I love you pervy pokemon enthusiasts.]
>>900715THanks for running, Gobble. Fun as always!
>>900715Thanks gobble, have a nice night
>>900715Thanks for running
>>900715Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>900722>>900727>>900728>>900729[Thanks! I also appreciate everyone's patience with the pacing. A lot of the quest so far has been setting up/laying out stuff for later. I probably shouldn't have front-loaded so much.You guys are really the best.]
>>900715Thanks for running!
>>900737Thanks! Wish I could have participated more instead of breaking down over finals!
So I just started playing Moon, and the first island trail guy had a mankey that scored 3 fucking crits after he proced anger point
>>900852ouch, hope that bad luck doesn't follow you to the totem battles, those can get nasty fast if things go the wrong way.
Man, This gymleader really needs to get his act together.
>>901022I know. He does a shitty job as an electrician (As evidenced by the pokemon lab), he does a shitty job as a husband (As evidenced by his wife), he does a shitty job as a parent (As evidenced by his kid being retarded), he does a shitty job at being a gym leader (As evidenced by him giving us a useless TM, ending his battle with Hana rudely, not knowing what the fuck a Budew was, not knowing what Worry Seed did, etc.).And then he had kids go out into the rain to find his Pokemon. The man just sucks straight dick.
>>901101What're the odds he's going to get bitch slapped somehow by someone calling him out?
>>901101I agree with you somewhat, except on the TM part. Volt Switch is great and it isn't like he has a closet full of every electric type TM under the sun.
>>901101Indeed. Hopefully our plan to tell him off after we rescue pichu gets through to him. He seems more thoughtless and self-centered than actively malicious, so having someone outside his family bring all this stuff up might get through to him.
>>901101Yeah we should embark on the ss route with his wife, she needs to get a real manwho's a 14-17 year old boy
>>901229This would make a nice 'what if' pastebin, where Herb 'assists' the lonely wife with her itch.
>>901241>cuckold shit>nice pastebinWell, no accounting for taste, I guess.
>>901283It isn't cucking if they get a divorce.
>>901287I mean, I guess that's technically true in cases where the wife isn't interested in the guy - or doesn't know him - prior to the divorce.It's just a very weird thing to want to see.
>>900852It only gets worse from hereFuck nanus persian
>>901315Some people like it. I was just saying what it is. Compared to some stuff that is pretty tame.
>>901316Fat Persian are miracles of the universe
>>901348I hated it at first, but it really grew on me in game and in competitive. I love that Technician + Bite and Z-Parting Shot on something fast.
>>901333I'm aware. It's just weird.>>901348Fat Persian is so dumb it loops around to being hilarious. I may have to use it on my next playthrough.
>>901101Christ man lighten up, the guy is human, all humans are imperfect. The guy seems like a new gymleader, remember the normal type lady from the last quest? And Voltswitch is arguably the best electric move in the game.
>>901101To be fair, we don't know how he is as a parent, we volunteered to go out in the rain, and complaining about the TM he gave us as a standard prize is a bit ridiculous.The rest of the objections are quite valid, however.
>>901793>>901893Yeah. I think the most we can do is recommend he bring in some help, considering he seems kind of spread thin. We'll give him a heads up that Palm will expect an apology, and if that doesn't convince him there's not much we can say from our position that will.
>>901957Also maybe tell him to just call time out instead of going 100% fuck over the challenger.
>>901976I think that while that's the point we want to get across to him, just telling him how to do his job which he's so clearly proud of won't go over well.We either need to ask him why he went easier on us, which would allow him to realize that he was too harsh on Hana, or we return our badge and prizes because we know we won because he held back, allowing him to realize he was too harsh with Hana. Hopefully he'll apologize on his own, and no drama will be necessary.
>>902011I'm alright with that, but I feel like we should still call him out on his other shit.like another anon said, he seems more self centered than actively malicious, so hopefully just bringing up his family issues will open his eyes to it.
>>902315>outsider bringing up your family issuesThat will do nothing but piss him off, I assure you, no matter how justified you might be.
>>902011I really like the idea of Herb giving back his badge back, not even upset and just saying based on Hana's battle he doesn't deserve it. If he was going easy on us we didn't get it on our own merits. I think that should be enough for our point. As for his job, or family we have no place to tell him he is wrong. I would be for mentioning that his wife wants to spend more time with him and the Professor wants to talk to him about a faulty electrical job. Anything else is just assuming too much.
>>902367This guy gets it.Phrasing and word choice are really important. Once you set somebody against you, they'll oppose every idea you put forwards. Like how with Jane we asked what happened between her and Laki, not what her problem was with Laki.
>>902315>>902351This guy is right.A person outside the family will either be ignored or get berated for telling anyone how to be a parent. Herb shouldn't step into something that's not his business.
>>902367>If he was going easy on us we didn't get it on our own meritsAren't Gym leaders supposed to take it somewhat easy on trainers, or at least hold back to some degree?
>>902632[That's how I see it.]
>>902632You would think, but he didn't seem to with Hana, who has exactly as many badges as us. If he had made a move like that against us, we would have lost fast. So either he didn't hold back against Hana where he should have, or he did hold back against us where he shouldn't have. And it's a better move to act on the assumption that he was too charitable, rather than too harsh.
>>902632theyd be shitty trainers if they didn't. Either they only have pokemon in the 10-20 range despite being trainers for years, or absolutely obliterate trainers that have just recently started their journey
>>902632Didn't they cover that point in Pokemon Origins when Red fought Brock? Red said he had no badges so Brock only used his 2 weakest Pokemon out of his possible 6.
>>902668It seemed like he gave her about the same as what he gave us until the Pichu thing happened and he decided he had other, more important. shit to deal with and ended the fight.
>>902731Exactly. We, as the audience, can infer that he was holding back against Hana by keeping from using that particular advanced strategy that he ended the match with, and that he was supposed to hold back because she had no badges.Now, the responsible thing to do in his situation would have been to call off the match to attend to his kid. Instead, he blew off Hana by turning his back on the match before it was officially over and didn't say a word to her about the match afterwards. He's got important business to attend to, which is why we haven't said anything to him about it yet.I know that Hana's no glass flower, she's not traumatized, but it's still a shitty way to treat a kid starting out on their journey, especially since he's an authority figure.So if he never apologizes, which would indicate that he did react inappropriately for his station as a gym leader, then the polite takeaway for a respectful kid would be that he didn't act inappropriately in his match with Hana.That would indicate that he held back against us, and we would then have the opportunity to make a gesture which may make him realize that he should at least talk to Hana about the way that match ended.(Also I'm this guy>>902668)
>>902826God, I don't understand how ID's work.
>>902834Wait, who are you?
>>903065I had assumed that posting from my phone would result in a different ID from posting from my computer. I didn't want to create an illusion of being backed up by some other person, when in reality I was elaborating.
>>903077I think It's IP based. but then again, I was posting from school on a phone and laptop and it gave me different IDsit's all sorts of weird
>>903223Yeah, posting from different buildings at university gives different IDs. I think it has something to do with the different internet connections, but I don't know enough about how the internet works to say for certain.
[We'll be starting up again shortly]
>>903434Hype!A storm's a-brewin'!
Lets do this
>>903434Oh, yeah! I'm ready!

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, but can be summed up as a more freestyle system vaguely inspired by the Pokemon Tabletop United system, anime, manga, and games. 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. There are no "turns," just points where voting for a different strategy or move is appropriate.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Budew)Badges: 1Recently: It's in this thread you lazy mofo.
You take Mace out of his ball. You were carrying him to keep him as fresh as can be. That, and you’re not sure how much energy it takes to make him fast.“Can you hear anything from that cave?”He hops over and focuses hard. You can see his auditory...face thing carefully pop in and out. He seems to be trying to listen for different pitches.The wind blows hard and nearly knocks you over. Mace is lower to the ground, though.He faces up to you and shakes his head. Or is that more accurately called his body? Either way, it’s a negative. The wind is just too much.Wait, he cocks his head.“Did you hear something?”He gives a weird motion.“You’re not sure?”He nods.You take a moment to figure out what to do. “Okay!” You have to shout. “I’ll check it out. You stay here and let Hana and the others know where I went.”Mace nods adamantly, despite his unease. He takes his assigned duty seriously and perches himself up where he’ll be visible.You crawl into the narrow area of the cave. Sure is dark in here.You take out your cooking lighter. You can see, but not very far.>Spend time making a torch>Proceed and don’t worry about it>Take out Bella and have her use Absorb as often as she can. It gives off a faint green light>It’s a bit awkward, but use the light of your pokedex>Something else

>>903652>It’s a bit awkward, but use the light of your pokedexThree varieties of bat to choose from, so let's see what we find.
>>903695Woobat could be cute. Don't see a lot of physical psychics.
>>903716ehhhhh, Noibat would be the best
>>903652>It's a bit awkward, but use the light of your pokedex
>>903716Woobat line has shitty design though.
>>903652>it's a bit awkward but use the light of your Pokedex
>>903716But woobat looks like shit tho
>>903727>>903735Maybe I just really like heart stamp. You know who else can get heart stamp? Miltank!
>>903758Miltank would be a better choice theme wise i think but i'm not opposed to Woobat
>>903771I guess we're also all assuming this is bat country. Could be a fabulous Diglett, if anything. What curveballs could we get? Chingling? Exeggcute?
I don't want to catch anything right now, 3 pretty good now. I'm lying, I really want that Murkrow we met
>>903788I wouldn't be opposed to this, we did just get volt switch>>903792I'm still bummed we missed Murkrow
Once you’re deep enough, the cave opens up and lets you stand again. You take out your pokedex and crank up the brightness.You look around as best you can in the dark. Your eyes are adjusting though. The small but reliable and steady amount of light from the pokedex helps a lot.There a strong whistling noise coming from the way you came, but it fades as you get deeper.The first thing that strikes you is nothing. In that, there’s nothing here. No pokemon, no sign of activity. Just rocks and a two in stream of water. At least, to the best of your knowledge. You’re not exactly the survivalist type. All you know is that there’s nothing obvious.Still, this leaves you with a problem. How are you supposed to find Pichu, if he’s even here? Searching would take forever>Shout for Pichu as loud as you can>Use the battery from your Pokedex to make a current in small stream (this kills the battery)>Try heating some food up. Lure it out with the smell>Search manually and stealthily>Something else
>>903792I was never too thrilled with the Murkrow line, but I can understand not wanting to fill our team up quickly. I want to keep on with inviting pokemon into our family, rather than battle-catching.
>>903807>>Try heating some food up. Lure it out with the smell
>>903807>Try heating some food up. Lure it out with the smellJust like a boullion cube in water or something. Whatever's fragrant, but fast.
>>903807>Try heating some food up. Lure it out with the smellPlay to our strengths, even tho this might lure out something else in this cave

>>903807>Just rocks and a two in stream of water.What?
>>903807>Use the battery from your Pokedex to make a current in small stream (this kills the battery)Probably not very smart, but I also don't want us to be swamped by a horde of bats.

You decide to play to your strengths. If there’s one thing that’s worked out consistently for you, it’s cooking. Although technically you’re actually not going to cook anything good. You’re just going to try to produce a smell. If that doesn’t lure out Pichu, then he just isn’t in this cave!You combine some spices, bouillon cube, and a small bit of kibble, aiming for maximum scent. Using your lighter, and your cast iron pan, you carefully heat it. And using your shirt, you waft them smell as far as it can go.Oh man, does it smell good.There’s a small stirring off to the side.“Pichu?”A small creature, Pichu’s size, shuffles a little closer. The pokedex’s light isn’t enough to entirely tell what you’re looking at. You lower yourself down.A heavy flapping catches you off guard from the other side. You hear a snap above you where your head was a second ago. You stumble forward to avoid another. As you turn around, you see your attacker is some sort of huge pokemon with three heads.It flies away but starts circling back. It’s going to attack again! You reach for your pokeball but it’s already closing the gap before you can throw it. In a panic you stumble forward and kick the pan. It bounces off of one of the heads and lands back in your hand. You raise it up instinctually and hear another loud clang as the other head smacks into it when trying to attack you. “Sorry!” You throw your arms to the side. But as you do, it smacks against the third head that was trying to come around at a different angle. It's like a scene out of a Jackie Hitmonchan movie.The pokemon stumbles over itself, and almost you, as it comes to a hard crash.A pokeball would be handy right about now.>Send out Bella to try to make sure it’s knocked out>Grab the creature you’re pretty sure is Pichu and go>Go check to see if it’s okay>Just run. Pichu can follow
>>904123It has gotten better. Now we just have to deal with deleveling pikachu.
>>904156>>Go check to see if it’s okay
>>904156>Go check to see if it’s okayWhy don't we have pokeballs?
>>904156>>Go check to see if it’s okayHydreigon what the actual fuck I want it so bad
>>904123The worst part is that that was probably the best league to dateAll of the fights were super entertaining(bar the last one) and ash was surprisingly competent Most of his team got sweeped by darkrai who got BTFOD by sceptile Ended with double KO with Latios and pikachu
>>904156>Grab the creature you’re pretty sure is Pichu and go
>>Go check to see if it's okay
>>904156>Go check to see if it’s okay
>>904156>Check to see if it's okIf we dont get the option to add this fuck Im going to be very, very disappointed. Because we need him. Badly.
>>904156>Go check to see if it’s okayWe can't just beat up random mons and go away like nothing happened.
>>904181Ash had the team, the tactics, fucking everything. The rival fight prior to that was amazing
>>904156Oh sorry, it wasn't an ultra beast it was just a motherfucking Hydreigon.>go check to see if it's okay
>>904156>Go check to see if it's okay>hydrogen Holy shit that is so fucking over leveled
>>904156>Go check to see if it’s okay>Give it some food
>>904156>Go check to see if its ok>Call out to the small creatureNot bringing Bella out, we dont need to scare her until we know the there's no threat
>>904202Probably going to get it's kid if anything.
Also, +1 to offering it food, if it's okay and not trying to kill us.
Does our pokedex have a photo function?We need a picture to prove that we beat Hydreigon in hand to hand combat.
>>904156>Go check to see if it’s okayJust imagine if Herb was carrying a baby Pokemon. The picture would be perfect.
>>904156>Go check to see if it’s okayI can't believe this.
>>904225>Herb succeeded where Kat Failed
I want it or it's baby so bad.The island better give us another stone for being this badass>>904236you cheeky fucker
>>904225Knowing our luck, that would wake it up and piss it off again.
>>904245What? it's True. Kat Punched Oberon and got fucked up. Herb just beat a demi-legendary dragon in cqc alone.
>>904221agreed, maybe we can bribe our way out of thisor atleast resolve this peacefully
>>904236Clearly, had Kat spent more time in the kitchen she'd be more masterful with frying pans.
We aren't letting the little one get away while checking on this one right? If we can get a baby dragon we sure as hell should.
>>904274Lets confirm what it is first
>>904274It's storming dude, the Pichu isn't going anywhere
>>904296I didn't think It was a pichu I thought it might be a baby whatever that thing was.
>>904301Oh god we've found Nebby haven't we?
>>904156Herb shall forever be a secret badass. At least until someone records it and still nobody believes it
>>904301Well it's preevo Deino is much larger than Pichu
>>904301Pichu's are .3 m and Deino's are .8mSo unless it's a dwarf it isn't a deino
>>904362Hey, what if it's a Munna?
>>904362I'm praying for a noibatstill a bit too big for a pichu, but its fluffy like one and it's dark in the cave
Just beat Moon. Caught Nebby in a Friend Ball. It seemed appropriate.
>>904372>we get slept by a munna>now locked in cave with hydreigon>in the end we befriend it and find a way out of the cave >it gives us a deino egg as a parting gift
>>904390Evee would be cool...>>904392>Giving away your children as a parting gift
>>904390>dewpiderYes please that thing was a fucking bro
>>904390What if it's Kartana.we ub now
>>904401Hydreigon are weird dude, they're not very into parental care
What if it's Pichu?
>>904401Hydreigon are fucking weirdAlso dragons have the tendency to do that
>>904410If you go by the dex though, they are creatures of nightmare.They're hyperaggressive at all times, their evo constantly fights with itself, and when they evolve a second time, one of the heads dies to become one of the brainless arms.
>>904411don't be silly, there's absolutely no way that'll happen.
Against every urge your body screams at you, you step towards it instead of away. “Are you okay?”It reacts a little, but not much. As you get closer and shine a light on it, it tries to move away. But since it’s laying out so strangely it just flops over onto it’s back.“Hey. Hey. it’s alright. I’m not going to hurt you.” You really hope it feels the same way.One head growls. The other whimpers. You shine the light closerOh. It’s really skinny. It doesn't look good at all.“Oh no. You’re hungry, aren’t you?” Your eyes go to the entrance. Is that the only way in? That’s too small for this pokemon.You quickly glance to the other smaller pokemon. It’s keeping it’s distance, away from the light, but it’s not going anywhere.A snap grabs your attention. The third head, while unable to move the body, just tried to grab a bite of your arm. It’s still pretty dangerous.>Prepare it something nourishing to eat.

well... you can find level 10 salamences in sun and moon via SOS chaining, an under leveled hydreigon isn't that hard to imagine, might limit their move pool a bit though

>>904426Thanks for doing the pastebin! It'll be really nice to keep track of our inventory this way. I did catch one error though, I think "and arms" should be "an arm."
>>904496Man I love my Salamence. Definitely worth the 3 hours it took to catch.
>>904496I both love and hate the SoS system It makes it really easy to farm because of you only having to get into one fight but farming takes so long

so you guys ready for Pokemon Star?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_evqEO5m-o
I wanna stick my dick in Jane's eye so she'll see where I'm cumming from.
You take out some kibble, spices, and a few other things. You’ve heard it’s a bad idea to feed some more dangerous wild pokemon, but you just can’t help yourself. This one, or three, is in bad shape.Truth be told, you’re at a pretty bad handicap. The only fire source you have is your camper lighter. But with a little oil and patience, you’re able to get something going.It’s limbs aren’t working entirely right, but the pokemon is slowly recovering. It approaches and growls to get you to back away from the food. You pick up the pan and point it at him. Or her. You’re not certain. “It’s not ready yet.”It backs away as soon as you grab the pan.You finish up as quickly as you can. Not a moment too soon, either, it’s getting braver and more desperate.You toss it a piece and it practically inhales. You toss it another and two heads fight over it.“Hey. Be nice. It’s all going to the same place.”Both turn to you to growl, but since you have the pan the both avoid eye contact when they do. You feed it the rest, but each time you give it a piece it becomes more aggressive. You made a lot, but it’s apparently not enough.“That’s all I have.”It growls, then whimpers and slumps. After that digests, it should regain a lot of strength.You turn to the other pokemon. It hasn’t come any closer. Any time you get nearer, it backs away. If it’s Pichu, it’s being really paranoid. You were planning on offering it some of the food, but the three-headed pokemon ate it all.You hear loud thunder outside, even through the deep cave tunnel. It must be nasty out there for poor Mace.>Promise it food (lie)>Offer it your pokedex battery>Corner it and shine a light on it>Take out Bella.

>>904666I'm pretty sure eating them is generally a bad idea, Satan.
>>904666Well Satan,it would mean it would be impossible for us to sleep for awhile if they were
>>904669>>904670Now that'd be a strong cup of coffee!I'm going to file that under "only food in emergencies."
Man, Herb is one tough, sweet granddad in the making. This is the best possible characterization for him. I just hope we can get a Noibat out of this somehow.
>>904676>Worry seed coffeeI want this to be a thing we cause. Future generations of trainers going through college with the help of Herbs Blended Roast.
>>904692This. We need to research this and roll in zenny or gold or whatever the currency is
>>904684as much as I'm hoping for it, I'm expecting a Mimikyu now. I forgot about them and it seems like a logical pokemon to mistake for a pichu

>>904704I thought they were pokedollars in the west.
You don’t want to be too forceful. That’s what make Pichu leave in the first place.Wait! You have the perfect idea. You’ll send out Bella! She can vouch for you.“Go Bella!”The cave lights up as she comes out, causes everyone to squint or cover their eyes.While you’re at it, you call to Mace. “Mace! Mace! If you can hear me, come on in!”Nothing.You walk to the very edge of the cave and shout again. After a short wait, he comes in. He scrambles to be fighting ready as soon as he sees the three-headed pokemon. You have to wave him to stop before he attacks. They both glare at each other and keep their distance.“Alright Bella. If you don’t mind, can you tell our friend over-”It’s already out, and pestering Bella! A small, flying pokemon with a needle nose. It’s like it’s trying to land on her! She runs around, avoiding it.>Hey! Cut that out! Leave her alone>Tell Bella to relax. It won’t hurt her (you think)>It’s attacking! Mace, Rock Blast!>Go grab it. It’s tiny.
>>904704whatever it is, we must establish our brand and then franchiseHerb's Worry Free-Worry Seed Coffee must become a thing

Rolled 23 (1d100)>>904725>>Go grab it. It’s tiny.
>>904703Mimikyu could also be okay if we can work around its anger-ghost tendencies. Also. I think Keira might have a heart attack if we walk out into a storm, crawl into a dark cave, then come back with an angry ghost.She goes online and writes a dumb theory about how thst Hydreigon killed us and the rest of the story is all a dream or something, all while making sure Mimikyu isn't reading over her shoulder.>>904725>Hey! Cut that out! Leave her alone>Go grab it. It's tiny. But be careful not to hurt it.I'm also okay with the tiniest dragonslayer.

>>904739>Go grab it. It’s tiny.poor hydreigon, sharing a cave with a speedy fly that can probably Ohko it with a single fairy move
>>904725>>Hey! Cut that out! Leave her aloneI don't really like Cutiefly, but the pollen puff thing means Ribombee really fit Herb's style.
>>904758it has killed people beforethough not on purpose from what I've seen of it's lore
>>904756What we thought was Pichu was actually Cutiefly.
>>904776I thought cutieflies were like super small, but alright then
>>904774The only death I know of was a scholar who looked under the disguise and died of fright.>>904764It's probably at least three times cutiefly's level.
>>904758The one you speak to in game that says "curse you" or something similar, that scared the hell out of me.
>>904725>Tell Bella to relax. It won’t hurt her (you think)
>>904783yeah, even joltik are biggerSeems like a cutiefly would be about the size of a tarantula or hand
>>904725>Hey! Cut that out! Leave her alone>Go grab it. It’s tiny.
>>904725Changing >>904746>Tell Bella to relax. It won’t hurt her (you think)
>>904758I thought I heard the anime made it rage-filled and resentful of Pikachu, but from what everyone is saying, it sounds like I'm wrong.
huh, cutiefly's pokedex entry says it uses aura to sense when a flower is about to bloom and consequently flocks to said flowers... bella's just a bud right now... so is this a sign that she'll evolve soon?
>>904749Uncensored link?Or at least character name if it is someone. Haven't payed attention to the franchise in ages so I don't know the bulk majority of characters.
>>904816Mom from Sun&Moon>>904815I mean she did take part in the gym battle against a Heliolisk and Pachirisu and evolved from friendship.
>>904797Right, I forgot about that.But to be fair, the protagonist did kind of wander into its hidden room that nobody knows about that it filled with pictures of everything it aspires to be.>>904814I don't know squat about the anime; I'm just going by the games. It could be that they did do it that way in the anime.
>>904814well, it's wanted to be pikachu for years, eventually the desire to be popular like pikachu became resentment and hate when faced with the actual thing. iirc its fine with everyone else, just not pikachu.
>>904824oh i'm not on about that, there's another one (or possibly the same one) in the Aether building on route 15 in a side room, you talk to it and it literally says "Me...me curse...you..."I know it's probably just saying its name, I still found it really creepy.
Aw man, do we have any pokeballs left? These two (Hydreigon and Cutiefly) are hard to pass up
>>904844I believe so, we should still have a few from our start
>>904816http://2static.funnyjunk.com/restricted/pictures/75/d0/75d0da_6104975.jpgI get most of my edited ones from http://www.funnyjunk.com/nsfw/channel/NSFWPokemans. Warning, furry shit is mixed in with good stuff. Still the best source of lewd pokegirls I've found
>>904844I'd say Cutiefly would be the one to catch. I love Hydreigon, but we are still a rookie trainer and having it with us could be a real challenge. Also we can't handle a 2nd Gobble in terms of consumption.
>>904844[Crap. I didn't put it down, but yes indeed you do. Updating pastebin now.]
>>904851I'd say it's worth a shot, at the very least we need to help him/her out of the cave
>>904861Oh! In that case, we should help Hydreigon out of the cave.
>>904867Oh yeah for sure. But I don't think we should plan on taking them with us for the journey. John will make friends will all the dark types on this island.
Definitely need to catch hi and get him outa the cave.
>>904851We'll be ok once our patent for Worry Seed Coffee goes through Seriously tho, we may have already earned bonus points with hydreigon. It just comes down to how well we handle things between Belladonna and Cutiefly (as aforementioned the evolved form really suits use and has pretty good coverage bug/fairy w/ grass moves)
>>904875I feel like we should just let it go, it seems like a dick move to have a pokemon agree to stay with you because it was starving and stuck at the time
>>904871oh, we could get mace to expand the tunnel with rock blast or try to learn digbut should we really release a pokemon known for destroying towns? Even if it's native, that's not a pokemon you want running around. Unless we can convince it to be chill(maybe by feeding the nicest head so it becomes strongest of the three), it would probably cause trouble for the island.or it acts like a forest fire, destroying so growth can happen. Depending on what happens, we could get a crystal out of releasing it
>>904851Personally I wouldn't mind having a Charizard/Mamoswine/Dragonite type pokemon that we need to work with to earn their respect
>>904825Yeah, that makes a lot more sense. Still, I think Keira wouldnt be very happy to see it if we came back with one.
>>904893Should probably ask Kiera or the professor about what to do after we catch it.
Okay, I go to town for an hour and you people find a cave with a Hydreigon and a Cutiefly.More over, you've somehow managed to make progress towards getting the Hydreigon.What the actual fuck.
>>904894Hell yeah >>904902Best thread ever
>>904902Herb can only be badass with no or minimal witnesses.
>>904875Just take it to shelter, make it as much food as it pleases (our wallet withstanding), then offer to let it go.>>904902Dem crits, my boy.I'm fine with the hideously overleveled mon that ignores us but gradually comes to respect us over the course of the journey, but we should give it the option to refuse.
>>904894>>904904I feel like the way we are catching it is kinda scummy. I like what >>904907said is a good idea, but we should wait for the storm to end before making a real final choice.
>>904907Yeah, definitely give it the out.If it thinks its been tricked later, it'll bite us in the arse. Probably literally.
>>898861Why does the lower left island look like an orge cock?
>>904913So catch it to get it out of the cave, and then let it decide when we're done finding Pichu/the storm is over? Seems fair to me
>>904902Yeah but the anons want to free him, what a waste of crits
>>904918Friendship isn't a waste.
>>904916[It's a rough trace of a real island. I took a real place and geologically and culturally violated it.]
>>904922Also more evidence of herb's awesome frying pan combat skills. If we set enough precedent we won't have to roll so high for it.
>>904851We'd have an easier time with a Hydreigon than Jane.
>>904916you are just cock crazy anonyou are seeing them everywhere because you crave cock
“Hey! Cut that out!” You warn it.The large pokemon is quickly regaining strength and gets up. It doesn’t seem to like the tone you’re taking with the small bug. They must be friends.Mace positions himself between you and it. It cares, but not enough to back off.“Everyone, relax.” You pick up your pan to put it away. The large dragon and the small fly stop. Belladonna and Mace also theor their attention to you. When they do, the fly goes back to collecting something off of Bella, but she doesn’t notice.“Neither of you have seen a Pichu, have you? Small mouse pokemon, about this big?”The two don’t seem to know what you’re talking about. Dang. This is a bust.Bella finally does notice the bug pokemon poking deeper into her flower and fires a warning shot of Pin Missile.The dragon rears up again. This time with more energy and determination.

>>904935....of course. Damn our luck.>It'll take a long, long time, but your pokemon working together might be able to expand the cave hole.>recall Belladonna, might calm things down.
I just want to point out to people that are voting to widen the hole that we're supposed to be finding a pichu and getting back to shelter

“I have an idea. If I catch you, then you can get out.” You reach for a pokeball.Once it’s visible though, the dragon roars and moves towards you. It doesn’t attack, but it’s clearly not okay with the idea.“But you can get through the hole and-”It roars again. Belladonna and Mace form ranks in front of you. Bella accidentally uses Water Sport on the floor, though. You’re pretty sure that if Mace could sweat, he would be doing so right now. “Okay, okay. Just a suggestion.” You put the ball away. Even the small bug pokemon seems to think it’s being unreasonable.You start backing out of the cave with your pokemon. Before you do though, you see the dragon giving a regretful, but still prideful look.Maybe another time.The wind and rain is intense. You have to hold an arm in front of your face because the sideways rain stings. Thunder booms disturbingly close>Wait, stay and try to open the hole>Go searching for Pichu down the power line>Go back to the gym. Maybe they found it>Something else

>>905032I wound up liking those two a lot more than I thought I would. Everything about the game was so great, especially after what's felt like two disappointing generations in a row. Hau's crush on Lillie was cute, even though she clearly had a crush on chicken-chan, and I got into character enough that I sort of decided she would have reciprocated had Lillie been able to tell her. It made the ending a little sad, with neither of them being able to work up the courage to tell each other how they feel, even though they'd both saved the world, and one of them was the champion.I like to think that when Lillie comes back from Kanto in a few years, their feelings get rekindled and they finally get together.>>905067Nah, she doesn't do anything for me.>>905068>Go searching for Pichu down the power line

>>905128Have you heard the good news?
You wish you could stay and help, but they’re safe for now, and Pichu might not be.“I’ll come back!” You shout. “I promise!”You retrieve your two pokemon. As you do, you see Belladonna giving you a scared look at the prospect of coming back before she vanishes in the ball. Mace gives a concerned look too.But you can’t just leave them there. You grab a sturdy branch and plant it deep into the ground outside of the cave to mark it, just in case you have trouble finding it later.The wind and rain whips at you as you push yourself down the path of the power line. You’re nearly pushed over a few times. You’ve never seen a storm this intense in your life. You feel small, and powerless.Pichu probably feels that way too.You push on.After what feels like forever, you find your way to the next substation. You check under and around it. Nothing. After an even longer time, you repeat it at the next one. Then the one after that. The sunlight, or at least what little bit was getting through the heavy clouds, is fading. The rain, thunder, and lightning, is not.As you bring your head up this time, though, you see what looks like Hana in the distance. She’s running towards the gym, and it looks like she has something in her arms.In the opposite direction though, is a small, thin figure that you’re pretty sure is Keira. She’s just outside of the tree line.>Keep going down the power line>Go to Keira>Go try to catch Hana>Something else
>>905155>>Keep going down the power line
>>905155>Go to Keira
>>905155>>Go to KeiraWhat is she doing just standing around?
>>905155>Go to KeiraYell at Hana, tell her you are going to get Keira.
>>905155>>Go to Keira
>>905155>Go to KeiraProbably a good idea to get her help with Hydreigon, or at least get her opinion.
>>905155>>Go to KeiraEither we know the most and can tell her we think Hana has Pichu, or she knows the most and can tell us what's going on.
>>905155If someone else catches that Hydreigon while we're away, Im gonna be pissed.
>>905174>in a rinkydink cave in the middle of a massive stormI think we might be fine
>>905155>go to Keira
>>905174someone?Jane. She's there and she's not asking she's catching it. After all that's what Laki did, she should to! That'll show her!
>>905174>Jane catches it.>Tries to rub it in our face when she finds out we tried to do so and failed.>We congratulate her wholeheartedly.
>>905155>The wind and rain whips*whip>The rain, thunder, and lightning, is *are
>>905183>He regrets refusing Herb for the rest of his days.
>>905155>Wave to Keira, calling her over>Call out to Hana, "Did you find Pichu?"
>>905180>>905183Hey, as long as it gets out of the cave I don't really care who catches it. I'd prefer the cutiefly myself.
>>905192I'm not a fan of that or it's evolution. Really don't like that look.
>>905193>Not liking Cutiefly or RibombeeThat is some mighty bad taste there. I'm sure you have some good taste in your though. But I think those two are a package deal if we want to catch one.
>>905192We can get both, they're buds and like being together
>>905196I don't think either is cute and I'd rather have different faries/bug type if we ended up with one.Whimsicott is probably my favorite fairy.
>>905201Floette would like a word.That said, Ribombe is actually really good so I really wouldn't mind having it myself.Getting Cutiefly and Hydreigon would mean having cake and eating it too, though.
>>905203Floette isn't half as cute as these fuzzy little bastards.
>>905201>>905204Shame we already have a grass type.
>>905205Who said we can't have more than one? If one of these guys shows up I'mana be almost as annoying as the Larvesta guy.
>>905204>thinks jumpluff ripoffs are better
>>905217Annoying autists is the single most compelling reason to double down on type coverage.
>>905205>>905214All in favor of catching three Jumpluffs say aye.
>>905214Jumpluff is ugly. So yes they're way better.
>>905211You normally want your team to have the most coverage possible. Ya'know I think it's a geranlly good practice.
>>905221Pass>>905219It also sucks because Pokemon will just outclass eachother. Remember how much we stopped using Nibbles once we got Oberon?
>>905223Saved my ass more than once in Moon.I actually had a legitimate time picking a team in Moon.Plenty of good options for types I don't normally use, but I had a time of it finding a water time I liked and for once I didn't even have a flier on my team.
>>905226That's probably the best argument for type coverage.
if someone can make a case for a grass type via its functionality on the team I'd be cool with it, I mean I'd love a trevenant or dhelmise now that I think about it but we had a trevanent last time... though dhelmise does have triple STAB's thanks to its ability...and now i'm just rambling...
>>905231You aren't suggesting putting bella in a box right?
>>905229So was it weird playing Moon with the difference in night or day or did you like it that way?
>>905234I'm playing it right now and it's really goddamn weird that it's day time at one in the morning.
>>905230Oberon is actually why I'm wary of Hydreigon. Even if they don't listen to use that is a huge power jump from the rest of our team and I don't want another Pokemon we use in basically every fight.
I figured this may be relevant to everyones interests
>>905236Key word won't listen, Oberon was end game and was still used in every fight
>>905234A bit irritating trying to evolve Cubone Marowak because of the time distance and my habit of playing at night, but it was still doable.
>>905238And Herb is pretty good at making friends.
>>905237would help if I posted the Linkhttps://twitter.com/TrainerMax1Guy is pretending to be a trainer live twitting he pokemon adventure in S&M
>>905236Dude. This is Herb we're talking about. He'll give everyone a fair, equal chance on the time to do their best. Hydreigon would be the guy who comes afterwards pissed at the world in the place of Herb, if all the others get beat, cause we all know its impossible for Herb to get mad.Kinda like a trump, but only sometimes.
>>905234For me, it wasn't really a problem, other than a bit of effort on when to evolve night/day evos.
>>905245I know that, but if we have to choose a set number of Pokemon then they will always be on that top 6 as our ace.
>>905233oh hell no, we keep bella no matter what.
You decide to run for Keira. You’re not sure if you could manage to catch Hana if you tried.It takes you a surprisingly long time to close the distance. Luckily she’s not really heading away.“Herb?” You see her mouth it more than say it. Her makeup is very subtly running, but still easily covering her face.“What are you doing?” You motion to the area as you shout.“...found...spirit...guide it...” You can only catch a few words, but you get the general idea.“You found a spirit and guided it?” You’re guessing that’s what she’s saying. “Is it okay?”She puts her hand up and points while holding her thumb up. She thinks about it for a second and corrects it, just giving a regular thumbs up.“Did you find Pichu?”“...found...Hana...back to...”You think she means Hana took Pichu back to the gym, maybe.Your mind goes back to the sheet the gym leader showed you. As far as you can remember, you’re not too far from a shed for power line works. But if you’re wrong, it’ll be pretty bad.A gust of wind nearly bowls you over. Even the normally graceful Keira stumbles a bit from the sudden force.It’s getting really dark, really fast. You could go back to the cave. It’s farther than the shed and the dragon might not like another visitor, but at least it’s shelter you know how to get to. The gym is farthest, but it’ll be warm and dry. You could also try your luck with the shed if your memory is right.>Lead her to the shed>Lead her back to the cave. >Lead her back to the gym. It’s a longer trip, but safe>Something else
>>905262>Lead her back to the cave.
>>905262>Lead her to the shed
>>905262>>Lead her back to the cave.
>>905262>Lead her to the shedDon't press our luck with the dragon right now.
>>905262>>Lead her back to the cave.This will be fine. Tropius can feed the beast, too.
>>905272I really doubt that it will tolerate Keira and Tropius.
>>905262>>Lead her to the shedHydreigon have the whole 'tormented soul' thing. Keira would probably freak he fuck out, which if she's guiding a spirit somewhere, probably isn't the best idea to go messing with.First though, check if she's going to be okay, because she sounds really out of it.We can check on Hydreigon tomorrow, but still, mention it to her at the least. She might be able to help it.
>>905262>>Lead her to the shedWe can see our hydra buddy later.
>>905275I feel like between our berries and the Harvest ability, we should be able to keep feeding it, and thereby keep it calm, for a while.
>>905262>>Lead her to the shed
>>905279Depends how ravenous it is and whether it's greedy by nature.It could probably seriously hurt Tropius if it wanted to.
>>905279We blew all our food on Hydrei already, and I'm not so sure Harvest produces nearly as much as you think, especially in a rainstorm.
>>905262>Lead her to the shedIm sure theres some justifiable reason to do otherwise, but I don't want to freak out our new dragon and bee buddies more than we have to.
>>905283>>905284Good points. I'm still a little iffy on looking for a shed we haven't seen.
>>905287Also, it'd take some bullshit luck to keep Hydreigon from doing exactly as it pleased if it didn't like having visitors.And let's not tempt fate with our luck.Remember what happened with Robin at the temple?It could be an awful lot worse with a Hydreigon.
>>905262>Lead her back to the shed.
>>905288Frankly, I would have selected the gym, but it was more important to head off the worse idea that was the cave.
“We should find shelter!”She nods. She grabs your hand to take you somewhere, but you instead point in the other direction. She cocks her head, but goes along with it.You follow the power line and really hope that you’re right. There’s a huge sense of relief when it turns out to be the case. Your spirits drop when you find the door is locked, though.Keira can see the issue from your failure to open it. She shivers and rubs her arms. As cold as you are, the skinny, half naked girl in front of you must be freezing.Well, you’re not going to just stand here! You know what you have to do! You roll up your sleeves, put your shoulder forward, and get ready to force your way in. One. Two. Gah!Keira climbs up your back. She’s already off of you before you realize what happened. She’s crawling into a barely open window, high above the door. She rips through the screen, and a few seconds later the door in front of you opens.“Good thinking.” You tell her as you rush in and close the door behind you. The shed is small and simple, but dry inside. Shelves full of tools line the walls.She smiles and looks around the shed. "I was going to say the same thing! This is way closer than the gym." Her makeup is even more messy now, but still a long while off from being able to see her face.Brrr. you’re still freezing. And so is she.>Curl up and tough it out. It’s going to be a long night>Try to start a fire inside the shed>You heard that you’re supposed to take off wet clothes and share body heat...>See if Bella and Tropius can absorb the water from your clothes>Something else
