You and Hana went out searching for it. You found a Hydreigon and Cutiefly in a cave. You ran into Keira in the search and both of you are taking shelter in a supply shed for the night
>>916565Hey Gobble! I've been looking forward to this all day!
Water type pokemon > All other types
>>916565Awwwwww yis!>>916577They are pretty great.
I may be at work but I'm still excited
>>916577you misspelled Bug
>>916565I've been hype all week! Hey Gobble!
>>916565Nice pun in the title.Today gonna be good.
>>916606I don't get it. What is it from?
Gonna miss the first few votes. My breaks over in a couple minutes.
>>916565Gobble. Best girl in the new pokemon games? Or top 3 best girls in your opinion.
[Writing first post. Still a bit slow sorry.]
>>916639Gobble supposedly has like a billion Hilda pictures. That one statistics autist could offer more insight.
>>916640Last time on pokemon, our heroes took shelter from the storm, but not before being soaked to the bone.Time for Hypothermia Quest.
>>916640>>916654Oh, hoho! Very clever.
>>916667this is why you always teach at least one of your pokemon a fire moveeven better to have one that is naturally on fire, but we don't really need one for coverage atm. Infernape would be really cool though
>>916683I think body heat is safer and more effective indoors, besides no chance of burning the place down.
>>916640My my my
>>916690yeah, but you cant make smores with body heata swinub would be good for the role, seeing how we don't have Gobble with us. Could also sniff out truffles for us
>>916714Swinub always looks perpetually depressed.
>>916722He looks happy to me...
>>916722youd be too depressed if you had to live in the snow with only a thin layer of fur
>>916714Swinub is cute and Mamoswine is really fucking great. We could ride on it, even.
Aw yea, made it in time for quest
“Well of course we should share body heat.” Keira says as she casually throws off her shirt. “I heard the mainland has different weather, but it does rain there, right?”“Of course!” You laugh a little louder than you intend as you keep your eyes focused on a shelf. You let out all your pokemon to keep yourself busy while she shimmies out of her skirt.She takes out her Tropius and lays down next. She opens the towel you’ll be sharing as a blanket. “Come on! You’re shivering.”You can’t really see her face in the dark, but you feel like her eyes are really focused on a single area.You lay down under the blanket, then take your clothes off. Keira giggles at your shyness. The size of the towel means the two of you are very close.Just as you’re feeling that this won’t be so awkward, she pushes tightly against you. Some parts freezingly cold, some parts heavenly warm.Keira tells you about the snow on some of the mountains of the region. Eelilee is the one she grew up on, near the base. But the priestly class goes higher up on it than anyone else. The higher your position, the higher you go up.“Snow is great! You’ll love it.”You laugh, less awkwardly this time. “We have snow where I come from, too.”“Oh...” she sounds almost disappointed, like she was going to impress you.Gobble leans against your back and gently snores, breaking the awkward silence just a little>Ask about her childhood.>Turn around so you’re back to back.>Tell her a joke>Just try to sleep. This is too much>Something else
>>916761>Tell her a joke>Gobble leans against your back and gently snores, breaking the awkward silence just a littleBut he's back at the gym

>>916761>Ask about her childhood.>Turn around so you’re back to back.May as well try to keep this from being too awkward. Speaking of awkward, surprised Bella isn't freaking out right now.
>>916776Lillie and Acerola best girls. You will understand me by the end of the game.
>>916788We can just ignore that last line.
>>916761>Ask about her childhood.Time for some backstory.
>>916761>Turn around so you’re back to back.>Ask about her childhood.>Try not to freeze to death.>>916772He knows. He's inserted himself into the story.
>>916800Face the center right E4 third.Then talk to them after beating them.
>>916776The Cray Cray mom is pretty violet tier. You might like her.
>>916761>Ask about her childhood.>Turn around so you’re back to back.
>>916761>ask when she decided to be a priestess.
>>916807>HeBut yeah, clearly gobble just decided to come in and watch two teenagers huddle for warmth under a blanket.
>>916810Violet was less of a cunt than her.I mean, the villains have done some bad stuff previously, but this time I was actually shocked.It wasn't for any other reason than pure selfishness either.Also, I've acquired a cat that decided to sit in the most awkward position, so apologies for any mistakes.
>>916823When did people decide Gobble was a chick?
>>916831When she was doxed back in the really early threads of the first quest. She has confirmed it also.
>>916826I haven't finished the game yet but I remember reading on vp that, one of those "other" side pokemon which are effectively eldritch abominations turned her from a loving caring mother into.. well what she is by being exposed to it.Don't know how true it is but that thread was super creepy. Sort of like that whole thing took everything she was and reversed it.
>>916836Aw poor Gobble.
>>916761>Tell a joke!>Ask about her childhood
>>916836[I confirm nothing! My gender, height, age, ethnicity, and other details are nonspecific.]
>>916849She became obsessed after her husband disappeared.Her husband being the guy who runs poke pelago, unless I missed something.The Violet comparison can be made, but Violet's motives and actions were less reprehensible and selfish.She was still a bitch though, just not as selfish, just misguided.
>>916857Lies. You confirmed that you're a lumberjack way back when.
>>916849Well, when you talk to Gladio after becoming the Champion, he tells you that his father disappeared while studying the UBs. Then his mother broke the fuck down and became obsessed with his research, which pretty much leads her to become the crazy nasty bitch we all know.
>>916867Gobble is an entity made of pokemon, lewd and butts
>>916857>Picture labeled SampleSo that's what gobble looks like.
>>916849Without getting too spoilery, that is what one of the creatures does, though it's ambiguous as to whether it was that or her disappeared husband that caused her to change.
>>916876>>916857P I N KH A I R
>>916857>>916883>Rocket Team memberShit, Pokemon Quest was a PR stunt all along. Next thing we know, we'll get handed a Zubat or Rattata and sent out to get fucking wrecked by some kid.
>>916857Drunk Gobble says otherwise.
>>916903Well at least Team Rocket gave us an interesting and fresh story then.
Haven't seen Laki in awhile. Wonder what she's up to.
>>916987She and a few others are in desperate need of screentime
>>916992Laki has had plenty.
>>917004Not since the forest, I don't think.
“What’s a Wailord’s favorite TV show?”She looks at you blankly.“Whale of Fortune!”“...Oh! Television program!” She presses her freezing nose into your chest, causing you to make an embarrassing high pitched noise. That makes her giggle and snort. You’re just concentrating on keeping your lower half away from her. As you move away, she moves closer.“I’m cold.“ She pulls you back. “It’s okay to touch me. Don’t let what everyone told you weird you out, okay? Just, treat me like everybody else.” Her voice gets quiet as she talks into your chest. “Please.”“Okay. Then tell me about yourself. What was growing up like?” You do everything you can to avoid poking her as she keeps squirming to get more warmth.She tells you about growing up in the priestly caste. From the context it doesn’t sound like she’s trapped into her career, but it’s heavily encouraged. She comes from a large family with a lot of sisters. What really stands out is her time with dead people. She’s prepared bodies for the afterlife. That seems unnerving to you, but she doesn’t see anything weird about it.Working with the soon-to-die is also a part of her duties. She’s watched people die. Again, it’s just a matter of fact to her.She’s been on Eelilee for almost all of her time alive, living in what sounds like a monkish temple. Her parents sound nice, and they visit a lot, but she doesn’t sound as close to them as she does to some of her teachers.Her particular temple was segregated, but the rules have lightened up recently. You get the feeling that her being on this journey is still a bit out there for a priestess, though.>Share something person.>Ask why she started her journey>Ask her goals for her journey>Ask her to stop scooching closer to your lower half>Something else
>>917012She has had like twice as much as Polu and Hana. But you are right.

>>917119>>anon complains that we aren't spending enough time with LakiNever enough Laki time.
>>917119In my defense, I said others needed screentime too. also >Not bonding with Hana Were you not here for the last several threads?
>>917119I think that anon was getting more at us not having any interactions with her for a while, other than in passing. Would be weird to not see her at all until we'd had a bonding crisis with everyone else over 10 more threads.
>>917135Well, then you just got to vote to spend more time with her when it comes up then.
>>917085I just don't want her feeling we're treating her differently than we would any other girl.
>>917136We cheered her on and comforted her when things went wrong, but that still doesn't really compare to what we've done with Laki (and now Keira).That's why I added the part about "especially" the other two that we've only specifically interacted with a few times.
I still don't like Laki that much.
>>917153And I don't like Hana Opinions are amazing right?
>>917153>>917168I can't understand why you dislike the best girls.
>>917168They kinda are if you really think about it. So many conflicting thoughts floating about in the world, each mind a reality that will interact with but never truly see its neighbors.
>>917187I don't dislike Laki, is just that I don't like that type of girl.
>>917153I hate to run to the grocer but I'm back now and just have to tell you: She's best girl.
You keep moving away, but decide not to ask her to stop. You don’t want to make this more awkward than it is.“Would it help if I put my feet here instead of my head?” Almost on cue, she makes it awkward for you.“T-that’s okay.” A quick mental calculation of your heights tells you why that is a bad idea. “So umm, why did you start your journey? What do you want to do?”She looks far away, into the past. “The truth is, I didn’t want to. Not for a long time. I liked my temple, and doing what I was doing. My sisters and I would cuddle like this on cold nights, too.” She pulls herself against you. “I miss that.”“So why-”She turns around and pulls your arm over her. Her freezing butt presses against you. “Hospice and funerals can burn people out. I’ve seen it happen a lot. Even though we help spirits find their way, it’s not easy sometimes. But that’s not why I left. It was when a teacher of mine passed. She was the best. But she told me she had regrets.”“What did she do?” The topic is actually helping bring your body under control.“That’s what I asked. But it wasn’t what she did. It was what she didn’t do. She turned down so many adventures, and trips, and never broke any rules. She told me not to make the same mistakes.”“She told you to break rules?”She laughs. It’s a bittersweet laugh this time. “I never broke any rules before that. But before I knew it was causing a lot of trouble. Pranking people mostly. She liked that. Said it caused them to at least have a unique memory they could look back on. When I asked for an exemption to go on a journey, they thought it was a great idea.”“So why did you want to go on your journey?”She turns to face you. Her makeup is severely smudged but still obscuring her face. “To live. Life is short, Herb, and it ends really suddenly sometimes.”Those are eyes that have seen proof of that.You decide to change the subject by sharing something personal.>Tell her about why you got into fashion>Tell her about an insecurity you have with your body>Tell her that you have no idea what you want to do with your life and every year you get older you become more paralyzed with indecision.

>>917247>Tell her that you have no idea what you want to do with your life and every year you get older you become more paralyzed with indecision. You hear about people your age accomplishing great things while you pick up hobbies but never stick with them.I think Herb is trying to tell us something. Though his cooking and fashion hobbies aren't recent, if I recall.
>>917247>Tell her that you have no idea what you want to do with your life and every year you get older you become more paralyzed with indecision. You hear about people your age accomplishing great things while you pick up hobbies but never stick with them.
>>917247>>Tell her about why you got into fashionThat last one basically summed up high school for me.Feels bad.
>>917247>Tell her that you have no idea what you want to do with your life and every year you get older you become more paralyzed with indecision. You hear about people your age accomplishing great things while you pick up hobbies but never stick with them.Gettin real in here.
>>917247>A quick mental calculation of your heights tells you why that is a bad ideaIf I'm reading/imagining this right, unless she's like 1-2 feet tall, her head should be at our feet.
>>917247>Tell her about why you got into fashion >Tell her about an insecurity you have with your body
With our rolls it really seems like Herb is pretty good at his hobbies, m8s.
>>917247>Tell her about why you got into fashionIn my experience, people generally don't like to hear about someones insecurities, especially people you aren't in a relationship with.
>>917266Man that option hits too close to home.
>>917288That and he's still big fashion/cooking.
>>917247>Tell her about why you got into fashion>Tell her that you have no idea what you want to do with your life and every year you get older you become more paralyzed with indecision. You hear about people your age accomplishing great things while you pick up hobbies but never stick with them.

>>917286think where her chest would be anon
>>917321oh, and what other parts would be near Herb's mouth
>>917321Roughly next to our knees.
>>917247>Tell her about an insecurity you have with your bodyLet's not get too real, now.
>>917247>>Tell her about why you got into fashionOr>>Tell her about an insecurity you have with your body
>>917330How tall are you picturing Herb and Keira?Keira's described as short in the pastebin, so (imo) would be roughly 5'1/5'2Herb is average, so 5'10 give or takeseems the height difference would have them basically 69ing. Don't know what I was thinking in my post.Doesn't really matter though, best position for retaining body heat is either spooning or hugging anyway. T-thanks boy scouts
>>917400He's a kid. There is no way he's 5'10 unless he's a giant.
Holy shit Hapu is so tiny
>>91740714 was pretty close to when I reached my full height and I'm 5'11".
>>917428I can't remember how tall I was when I was 14 but I'm 6'1 now and I'm reasonably sure it wasn't 5'10
>>917407he's 16ish(no exact numbers)5'10 is pretty normal for guys that age
>>9174405'6 or 5'7 is the average. I'd say that fits John.
>>917434Puberty is different for different people. Normally starts around 13 tho, I grew so much I got stretch marks since my skin was stretched too much.
>>9174465'10 is literally average male height.
>>917400>She presses her freezing nose into your chest>Her voice gets quiet as she talks into your chest>“Would it help if I put my feet here instead of my head?"She isn't putting her feet at our face, they'd be at our chest. The height difference would have to be massive for her breasts to come up the our waist. We'd have to have gigantism or some shit.>>917428When I was 14 I was about 5' 5". I'm 6' 3" now.
>>917449Brother.Grew half a foot over summer before the first year of high-school. Looks like I was whipped as a child or something.
>>917446manlet detectedand from an extremely quick google search, 5'10 is average, give or take an inch
>>917457For a fully grown adult, I'm talking about a teenager.
>>917440Average height for someone at 14 which I was I was lead to believe he was is like 5'3Herb at least my mental picture of him was always on the small side. Do to his attitude/hobbies.>>917457He might mean for 16>>917459Exactly. That seems way off for 14 unless Herb is going to be a giant.
>>917465Some dudes are full grown by 16
>>917473Not on average.
>>917468did gobble say Herb was 14 anywhere? I've been operating under the idea that most of the cast was about 16. Cause if Herb and Val are 14, and legal drinking age is 18(aka Laki), that's a problem, at least for mesauce for the claim of 5'10 being average at 16, everyone knows that the first thing you find on the internet will be truehttps://www.healthtap.com/user_questions/215888
>>917483Gobble only gave us a range. Was something like 13-16, IIRC.
You tell her about how you got into fashion. When you were a little kid, you never really paid attention to it. You got a lot of hand me downs from your sister, including some unisex clothes. As you got older, they got less unisex and more awkward. But you didn’t really notice. You weren’t good at sports, you were good in class but not one of the honor roll leaders, you never really stood out. Until the day you accidentally wore your sister’s girly pants. You didn’t know what made them feminine, or why people tease you. But when you came home in tears, you made it your business to find out.And what you found fascinated you. The way stitching lines in different places make such a difference. The way colours draw the eye. The way the clothes really do make the man. It was a whole new world.“But the truth is I don’t know if I’m any good. And when I cook like like what I have but I’m not like that angry tv chef where he just instinctively knows when something is off. I’ve had a lot of hobbies but I never stuck with them. I was reading about a girl my age in another region that won her league on her first try, and all these gym leaders that are even younger, and I don’t know what I’m doing! What if I just always pick things up and drop them? I love cooking and fashion now, but people change when they grow up and there are already prodigies on talk shows and things and-”“Herb.” She puts a hand on your chest. “Herb. That’s everyone. You’re sweet, and you make great food, and your clothes look good. Even Valerie was saying she was jealous at how well your pants fit. I don’t know a lot about pants but that sounds good. They even look good on the floor.” She nudges her head towards them. You lock eyes.Belladonna suddenly appears between the two of you. She’s frowning deeply and making an unapproving noise at you.“What’s the matter, Bella? Are we keeping you up?”She makes a frustrated, high-pitched harrumphing noise. It’s cut short when Nincada crawls over to her and weirds her out.>She’s right. Time for sleep.>One more thing... (write-in)[Also, I was planning on possibly writing a teasebin for this. How do people feel about that?]

>>917493Tease bin would be good. Also Laki bin. Also Hana imagination bin.Also Valerie frustrated and masturbating at the thought of being tied up like a present with Herb and unwrapped by Laki.

>>917636Herb would be kicked out the second he started criticizing Skull's out dated fashion faux pas
>>917663>Implying they wouldn't love their new stylish outfits.
>>917663>not making awesome uniforms for our new waifu and friends
>>917659I'd join team skull even without the waifus they seem like a lot of fun.
>>917671Hey not arguing upgrading them and drafting all our friends into the Team. just saying Herb's luck might result in a lack of tack.>>917682A slew of lewd uniforms for all our girls...yes please.You know what, where's the nearest recruitment office? Herb needs to take these guys in a new fashionable direction. (and shanghai their funds for our Worry Seed coffee chain
>>917684They are, up until the bills stop being paid, the water and electricity get cut off, and the boss decides helping the crazy lady rip holes in reality is a good idea
>>917705They are all the way in another region sadly.
>>917716Guzma was probably seduced and didn't realize he was sticking his dick in crazy up until it was too late
>>917726Yeah the local gangs are dicks and not fun like Team Skull at all.
“Thanks, Keira.” You pull your arm back, pretend like you didn’t totally just accidentally brush something you shouldn’t have, and pat Bella. You hum her a little tune from a gameshow since it’s the only thing that comes to mind, and she quickly starts drooping her eyes. She crawls over to behind your neck to get the excess heat from that, and you feel her relax to sleep.“You’re going to make a great dad someday. You have the aura for it.” Keira whispers and she steals your arm back.“Thanks.” You say again. She moves and your hand falls on her boob.“Ah! Sorry!” You whisper and pull away.“Sorry? I told you not to treat me differently. I mean it. Don’t worry about my class.” She pulls your arm back over her and presses her back against you again.“That’s not why I’m sorry. I mean, not why I’m sorry for touching your... uhh.” Oh jeez oh man. “I just...healthy young boy...you know? Beedrills and Pidgeys-” Your eyes are drooping.“You’re silly, Herb. But you’re warm so I’ll forgive you.”That, and the crushingly loud rain against the shed room are the last things you remember as you drift off to sleepYou wake up the next morning with a satisfied yawn. The warm sunlight shines through the high window on your face, and the sounds of the rain are completely gone. You had the strangest idea in a dream. Worry Seed Coffee. You'll have to check into it to see if it'd actually work, but-Your half-opened, crusted eyes fall on Keira’s face.Her paint is gone!You close your eyes again. You didn’t get a good look at all. Just barely enough to notice the lack of face paint. No details.>Take a quick peek. She said not to treat her differently.>Close your eyes as hard as you can and wake her up.>Throw a blanket over your Pokemon so they can’t see.>Something else
>>917726Then we need to find the local rabble and up their game.

>>917793It makes so much sense. Coffee that gives insomnia, brilliant!
>>917793The dream is real.Herb's Worry Free-Worry Seed Coffee will become a reality
>>917796The adverse health effects would be minimal. Just take Yawn-Tea.
>>917743>Take a quick peek. She said not to treat her differently.
>>917743>Close your eyes as hard as you can and wake her up.There's "treat her differently", and there's "this is actually super intimate for my culture, and would be highly embarrassing".
>>91779110 against 1 still isn't great odds even for a strong Pokemon.
>>917743>>Close your eyes as hard as you can and wake her up.we'll see it when she wants us to see it, not before
>>917806That's not true at all. Depending on levels it's a cake walk. You start with a level 64 dragon that obeys you can 90% of any of the games is a goddamn cake walk.
Man, I was really not expecting everyone to be so respectful of Keira and not sneak a peek at her face.Obviously this just means Keira is going to have a good long think about what could have happened if Herb had seen, and get all sorts of impure feelings about that.All kidding aside, though, this thread has been really good for normalizing Keira. This was exactly the sort of character development she needed. She's adorable.
>>917850I like serious Keira way more than bubbly Keria.
>>917853Yes those still factor here to an extent. And that thing doesn't level until level 64.
>>917743>>Take a quick peek. She said not to treat her differently.
>>917863A Budew that just hatched from an egg beat a Nuzleaf with Razor Wind.
>>917860They're both Keira, anon.Won't get one without the other.
>>917860Bubbly Keira is adorable too, but serious, caring Keira is definitely superior. It helps that this is pretty clearly how she really is deep down, so hopefully we'll be seeing more of it.
>>917870I know, I just some moods more than others.>>917872Stop denying the truth anon.
>>917872Also throwing rocks.
>>917880Stop acting like a pseudo-legendary couldn't floor a gang of thugs.
>>917894I'm not saying it couldn't. But this gang seems pretty big and a gang has bosses.
>>917899It depends on how the gang turns out. If it's close to team skull it's literally a joke. Bosses included.
>>917903These guys seem more like Rocket so far, a real criminal group without any big world domination plans. They just want mainlanders to fuck off.>inb4 their big boss is a lunatic that wants to wipe out islands that are too "infected" with the outside world
>>917906>real criminal groupwhat have we seen them do besides harass people again?have they actually tried running mainlanders out of town or tried burning the crop thats drawing their business interest here?
>>917914>burning their natural resourceAlso I'm pretty sure they Val's father mentioned them just waiting for an excuse to start using physical violence. I know someone said that.
>>917247>>Tell her that you have no idea what you want to do with your life and every year you get older you become more paralyzed with indecision. You hear about people your age accomplishing great things while you pick up hobbies but never stick with them.damn Gobble you really hit home with that one
>>917929Well that was the problem. It's aimed more at hopeless anons than herb.
>>917942i only just got in mate
>>917938You say that, but this is developing Herb. He already was shown to be somewhat pessimistic when it came to luck.
You close your eyes as hard as you can. You’ve got to wake her up. Your reach out to nudge her, but stop. If you touch her boobs by accident again you doubt she’ll believe it was another accident at this point, even as understanding as she is. You move your hands and reach out.Oh that’s not better at all. Much, much worse. Is there something wrong with your subconcious? You retract entirely.You can hear her stirring awake.“Keira? Keira wake up.”“Blessed morning” She yawns, then giggles. “Herb, I can see your-”“KeiraYourFacepaintIsGone!”There’s a still silence.“AHHHHHHH!” The scream makes you jump and hit your head on a shelf. It must have woke Tropius up based on the sound of scrambling feet. You think you heard Mace crash into something too.“Did you see it?”“I couldn’t-”“Can you describe my face!”“It was blurry! I didn’t really see it!”She puts a hand on her chest and breathes. “You’re sure? I really need to know.”“I swear.”She exhales. Then you hear her rummaging in her bag. After a short bit she finally says something. “Okay. You can look.”You open your eyes and nearly have heart attack at the sight of Kiera’s naked rear up in the air. She turns around wearing a mask with paint all over it. “Thank you for respecting my modesty.” The demon faced, naked, cute girl says with a slight bow.“Uh yeah. No problem.”You awkwardly get dressed while Bella harasses you for some reason. She must be hungry.Hungry! The two pokemon in the cave!>No time to waste. Go to them>Make breakfast first. Make sure everyone has their energy>Better collect some other people and Gobble first, then go>Something else
>>917967>No time to waste. Go to themWe can make breakfast there so they can eat too.

>>917967>No time to waste. Go to themthen>Make breakfast.
>>917967>No time to waste. Go to themDamn, Herb is getting an eyeful. I'd be fappin' for days after seeing this kind of stuff at his age.
>>917967>>Something elsePick up something to cook, seeing as we used pretty much everything we had in the cave already.
>>917967>No time to waste. Go to themWe can always make breakfast there.Also, we'll find out what Keira thinks of Hydreigons
>>917967>>917984I'll support this as well, but I'd prefer to phrase it as, "In my culture being naked in front of people is really immodest."
>>917967>Better collect some other people and Gobble first, then goDidn't Hydreigon kind of clear us out of all our food? Unless we're planning on foraging something on the way, we may as well restock and let the others know we're alive before we go back to the cave.
>>917967>No time to waste. Go to themHerb could probably just ask to see Kiera naked if he ever felt like it. No need to peep on anyone ever.
>>917967>>Better collect some other people and Gobble first, then goyou guys know we have no food left, right?did Herb touch what I think he did
>>918008Gobble's continuity error. We now have food.
>>917967>No time to waste. Go to thembut maybe get dressed>Herb, I can see your-what was she going to say here?
>>918015Quick justify the error, aaahhh there was canned food in the shed!
>>917984I'm pretty sure she's aware of that by now.
Even if we have no food, we can check in to see how they are doing before leaving so we can grab a bunch of food to cook them up a feast.
>>918017The shed was food storage. Dried fruits, veggies, canned goods, dried meats.
>>918018Are you implying that Keira is a tease?
>>918024Keira is definitely a tease. She's teased us before about exactly this. She's just also innocent enough to not always catch less obvious things.
>>918025A greater shame than her face being seen.
>>918017Keira could have had collect a bunch a food for a fert... a ritual to increase crop yields
>>918031She knows what she's doing
>>918055>showing off your body to someone you only met a few days agoSo she's a girl of low moral fiber?
>>918071every native girl has a blond fetishthis includes Jane
You explain about the pokemon in the cave to Keira, and that you should probably go check on them. She agrees and puts away the face paint she was about to use. The mask will have to do for now.You don’t have any more food, but Keira has a bit and says she might be able to find a little on the way or around the area when you get there. You’re not sure if it’ll be enough to satisfy the dragon, and as exciting as it is to freestyle with unknown ingredients, you don’t know how confident you are about making it tasty.She keeps an eye out while you walk. She’s been mumbling something to herself about another purifying ritual for herself tonight. You’re about to ask if something's wrong when she beats you to the punch and asks you instead.“Not wrong. It’s just, in my culture being naked in front of people is really immodest.”“You didn’t say anything before.” There’s something odd about her voice when she says that. It could just be the mask, though.“I didn’t want to be rude or make a fuss.”She giggles. “You’re going to have to get used to it. Some of the islands are more modest that way than others, but my body is a sacred vessel.” She leaps up onto a rock and proudly stands with her arms over her hips. She’s not naked anymore, but you can’t help but picture it. “But if it makes you uncomfortable I’ll do my best to keep it in mind. Sorry if I offended you.”You thank her and she leaps down, sticking her chest out again. Why does she do that? Must be a cultural thing.There’s the cave. It looks a little different. The rain must have reshaped the entrance a bit.You crawl in and Keira and all the pokemon follow.A purple blast of energy strikes by your feet.>Direct your pokemon to attack>Grab the pan and take a fighting stance>Put your hands up.

“Hold on.” You hold your hands up. “I’m not here for trouble. Remember me from last night?” You put your arms down and slide your backpack off and around. You keep one hand up and the other goes for the pan. “I bet you’re hungry again.”Keira drops the small gathering of berries onto your pan. Not really what you were going for, but you pretend it’s fine.You hear sniffing, then it bursts out of the darkness, grabs the berries, and retreats back a few paces. It’s looking better than last night, but still obviously malnourished.“Oh you poor thing.” Keira says.It growls at her.She takes a step back. “Herb. it’s aura is unpredictable.”The flying one, Cutiefly, buzzes over your head and lands in front of the large dragon. There’s some sort of exchange.“Wow.” Keira says. “Wow okay. Language.” You forgot that Keira can understand pokemon. That’s pretty amazing when you think about it.Hydreigon calms down a little. Cutiefly looks like she’s apologizing on its behalf, but that just angers it. Even Cutiefly backs up a little.Maybe it’s because it’s stomach is putting in work again, but it seems more unstable today. Cranky, aggressive, and dangerous. You’ve heard about people feeding wild pokemon only to get turned on as their instincts take over.>Let's just talk for awhile.

“Don’t worry. We’re here to help. We’re going to widen the entrance so you can get out.” You look to Bella and Mace. They take the cue and hop near the entrance.It looks at you appraisingly, then growls. It’s not immediately hostile, but there’s an angry tone, there.“Not stuck.” Keira translates. Her gaze goes between the heads. “But if I was, I could widen it without you.” She looks at the other one. “Yeah! You should just worry about bringing me more food as tribute.”Somehow, hearing what it has to say through her is even scarier. There’s an uncanniness about it. This must be that famous dragon pride you’ve heard about.Should you just help anyway? Patronize it? Try to act tough?A bead of sweat drops down the side of your head. You turn to Keira to get see if she has anything to add.“It’s pride is wounded and he’s still really hungry.” she whispers to you. “Herb. He’s not predictable.”He puts it’s focus on her. She freezes up a little. The mask and it’s angry looking painted on face seems to be bothering him.>Go ahead and open it then. You’ll stay out of it’s way and watch>Okay. We’ll be leaving, then. Bye.>Insist it rest while you take care of this>Something else

>>918318>"Keira, I think your mask is making it upset. Sorry, but can you take it off? I want to help it."
>>918318It's trying to salve its pride from getting beaten by ordering us around. Not really sure what the best course of action here is, but I doubt calling its bluff is the right one, unless we want another fight.>Insist it rest while you take care of this
>>918318>Go ahead and open it then. You'll stay out of it's way and watch
>>918318>Insist it rest while you take care of thisAppeal to its sense of vanity, why do the work itself when it has Herb there to do it for him?
You don’t know what to do. It looks at you, and you do your best not to blink too much.You step aside. “Okay. I’ll stay out of your way then. Go ahead.”You feel all the eyes in the room turn to you. Hydreigon’s face is confused. It’s surprised you’d say something like that, and unsure if you’re mocking it, or just believing it’s strength.“Uh yeah!” Keira says. Despite the mask, you can see the fear in her eyes. “We, umm. We wouldn’t want to insult you with our weak display.” She looks to you to see if this is part of your plan. If you have a plan.It keeps a suspicious eye on you and walks towards the entrance. The sunlight touches in for what you suspect is the first time in a long time.It snorts.You keep a hand on the frying pan and motion Bella to stay behind you. Mace feels that his place is in front of you, though.The dragon looks back to you, then the cave entrance. You think for a second that it’s going to admit it needs help.It explodes in a purple rage and attacks the hole. You lift the pan and hold shield yourself from the rocks. Keira leaps back after a pebble strikes her mask. Smash! Smash! Smash! It savagely pounds into it. It’s making progress, too. But after a few smashes, it looks a bit tired and confused. It’s eyes meet yours.Some dust falls from the cave ceiling.>Cheer it on! Give it praise! It’s almost there!>Take Keira and your pokemon and hide deeper in the cave>Attack it while it’s confused. You need every advantage>Stop! You’ll cause a cave in!>Something else

“Wow! You’re so powerful!” You praise. “Amazing! You’re almost through!”It looks at you in it’s exhaustion, then redoubles its efforts. Smash! Smash! Smash!Keira keeps watching, but reaches a hand out to yours. She’s trembling. With the other hand, she makes a series of motions and mumbles under her mask. She looks like she’s performing a ritual.Mace’s hearing thing on his face twitches with each smash. Bella holds your leg tightly.It thrusts it’s heads in and pushes outwards, widening the hole. The final move is unleashing a powerful Tribeam the blows away more rock and rubble. He pushes through!You, Keira, and your pokemon quickly follow. Cutiefly does too. You look back to the cave, and while it doesn’t collapse, you’re glad you’re out.“You did it! Err, not that there was any doubt.” Keira says.Hydreigon just stays there for a minute, ignoring everything, panting, and basking in the sun. It stretches it’s wings and looks back to you.>Ask it to join you>Wish it luck. You’re sure you’ll meet again>Say it should stick with you until it regains its strength.

>>918480This please. I don't want Jane to take him SHE DOESN'T DESERVE HIM
“That was amazing! I’m really impressed. You’re going to make an impression on everyone, aren’t you?”It holds it’s heads high. Of course he deserves this praise. He hides how worn down he is with a lot of effort.“I think you earned a dinner on me. Why don’t you stick around and I’ll keep you fed while you recover?”Keira gives you a look like you’re trying to invite a hurricane into your house.The middle one seems to reject this idea and even the concept that it needs to recover, but the two on the sides seem to disagree. They want food.They really want food! One starts getting really aggressive.Keira quickly grabs a banana from her Tropius and tosses it over. Hydreigon gobbles it up, skin and all. The other side head nips off the end piece to eat for itself before it vanishes entirely.“Yes. Prepare me a feast tonight. I’ll be back. I wish to fly.” Keira translates.With that, he takes off into the sky.Well, that’s a commitment. Cutiefly shakes it’s head at you.Keira puts your hand on her heart. “Herb, you’re crazy! I’ve never felt so alive!” She laughs. “I was so scared. I’m not supposed to be afraid of death but I totally was.” There’s a bit of worry in her voice, but it’s mostly a strange sense of excitement.“Yeah. I’m really glad the cave held out. I’m not usually that lucky for these sorts of things.”“Of course! I cast a good luck charm!” She waggles the hand she used to do it at you.Your pokedex starts buzzing. You pull it up and see a dozen text messages. “Where are you.” “Are you okay?” “We found Pichu, where are you?” It goes on like that.Oh. Oops. You quickly type up a reply to tell Hana that you’re okay. You get a reply. “Come to the gym.”[That’s it for tonight. We’ll be running again on Saturday. Thanks for coming, everybody.]
>>918521I think it'd be pretty funny if she pulled him out to shock us and we greet him like an old friend
>>918525Thanks for running!Time to blow our savings on a feast for the dragon.
>>918525Keira is cute. CUTE!Thank for running, Gobble.
>>918525Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>918525>Cutiefly shakes it’s head at you.What have we done? Thanks gobble, have a good one
>>918525You're the best Gobble. Thanks!
>>918525Thanks for running gobble
>>918525I hope that tone from the text implies something good, and not something bad. The frankness makes me nervous.Thanks for running!
>>918525Thanks for running Gobble as always>relationship progress with Keira>some progress made with Hydreigon>Pichu foundAll and all I say a good day
>>918525Thanks for running Gobble I appreciate the time you made for us. I think we've had time to bond with all the girls individually save for Valerie. What I most want is a hot blooded battle between men with Polu again and bro time. Jane is best girl, Totodile is best water type
>>918541Jane is a monster.Totodile is acceptable.
>>918527>>918529>>918535>>918536>>918537>>918538>>918540>>918541[Thanks! Keira has a lot of complicated thoughts about John right now. Mostly she thinks you're a lunatic, or some sort of magic pixie boy trope. She's also becoming suspicious. Maybe the warnings she got about mainlanders and their corrupting ways are true after all.Maybe she likes it a little. It's a small step in that direction right now but a significant one.]
>>918543wait what did we do to make her suspicious? I thought we were a perfect gentleman given the circumstances
>>918542She isn't a monster she is just conflicted, hurt, angry and wary. Much like the Hydreigon we just dealt with.
>>918541That's a funny way of saying Lanturn
>>918543How's Hana and Laki doing?>>918546never trust a boy who bargains with dark dragons.
>>918542She might or might not have had a hard life.
>>918547Hydreigon was almost starved to death with three heads arguing with each other.Jane is just a bitch.
>>918552Jane may have had three heads and been starved and trapped in a cave too.You never know.
>>918552Oh well, even if I can't get people to like Jane I can settle for Laki or Hana. Have some ace trainer I'm loving the design. I need to finish Sun, I haven't even done the first challenge.
>>918551Being Jane could potentially be suffering.
>>918543Well that just makes me want to do more of this sort of thing.
>>918561Being Kat was suffering. Overall she was a hell of a lot nicer person than Jane.
>>918565Or, hell, Hana.
>>918567Right and while I may not think Hana is best girl she didn't let a bad life make her a bitch.
>>918565It was a major plot point that, had things been a little different, Kat could have easily gone down a very dark path.
>>918575And she didn't. Good on her! Jane decided, "Nah I'mma be a cunt."
>>918580we can save her with the power of friendship
>>918582Why on earth should Herb waste his time and energy to befriend and chill her out?She's one of those, "If you can't handle me at my best!" Chicks where her best is screaming at you and breaking your things, and her worst is trying to kill you.
>>918580You're deliberately ignoring the point that it was her falling in love with Robin that drove her to try to reform herself. We have no reason to believe that Jane has ever had any such person in her life.Ironically enough, it would be completely out of out of character at this point for Herb to refuse to try to befriend her, making this a moot point.
>>918587I don't think she's that badI see her as that one kid who was trying to be all cool but ended up coming off as an asshole and rather than swallowing her pride and facing embarrassment she shifted the blame to Herb for everyone not liking her
>>918594It's very in-character for him to try, but after several failed attempts it would be perfectly reasonable to stop and move on.
>>918598>after several failed attemptsWe got her to eat ice cream with us. That's undeniably progress.
>>918600So you'd think. I'd be willing to bet she was planning our murder the entire time.
>>918596She didn't come off as an asshole. She is an asshole. Every encounter we've been in with her she's been a prick and had a hair trigger.The only reason her was able to go have ice cream with her is because he's in-humanly nice.Any other person on the planet would have just started ignoring her or telling her to get fucked.
>>918601But it wouldn't be in-character for Herb to assume that, which is a major factor here.You just (understandably) plain don't like her, and that's the long and short why you ardently oppose any attempt to connect with her.
>>918609Nah, I'm for us giving her another shot or two. I'd rather the spotlight be on absolutely anyone else though.
>>918609There is no reason for a person to try and pursue a relationship with someone like Jane after she's acted the way she has.
>>918616There's no reason to feed a dragon that just tried to kill you either, but it didn't stop us before. Herb wants to help people, and anyone can see that Jane not only needs help, but that she is responsive (however slightly) to our attempts to connect with her, which is something you keep trying to brush off. We don't have to form a romantic relationship to become friends with her and help her work through her baggage.
>>918626The dragon in this particular instance is malnourished and Herb wants it as a pokemon. To pretend otherwise would be disingenuous.Herb may like to help people but Jane doesn't have to be one of them. He doesn't have to help everybody I didn't bring up romantic anything because it's totally out of the question at this point in time. Some people don't need help, they're just ass holes. Example: Jane.I'd appreciate it if we didn't have to hold Jane's hand and explain right and wrong and not over-reacting like a dip shit. Her baggage is exactly that. Hers. Not everybody has to be your friend and that's okay.She should sort herself out. It's a waste of Herb's time and our time to deal with her.
>>918643>and Herb wants it as a pokemonSome anons have said they wanted it but so far Herb is just helping because it needed help
The Jane argument comes up just about every thread, and every time, someone brings up the same correct argument: Jane isn't a monster, but she's kind of a bitch. She's not irredeemable, and probably not even a bad person, but she doesn't treat Herb or his friends very well, and she's been outright hostile to the idea of becoming friends with any of them. Herb can be nice to her all he wants, but she has to want to be friends before any of that will work, and right now she doesn't want to be friends; the ball is in her court, and at a certain point it doesn't make any sense for Herb to keep trying to get her to open up if she's just going to keep being abrasive and hostile. This does not male her a bad character; it just means she's not going to become our friend until she decides on her own to stop defaulting to viewing us in a negative light.Now can we please stop forgetting this every single thread? Other people have made this point better than I just did several, several times in other threads. Let's talk about Herb's awkward boners or something, as long as it's not the same argument again and again.
>>918580I've actually been thinking about this sort of thing a lot lately. I don't... think most people are really, intrinsically bad or good people. I think most people make good or bad decisions, and as long as you believe that people have free will, you have to believe they can change their patterns at any time.Obviously, anyone who has tried to change themselves knows it's hard. But if you have choice, you can do it.Herb's pretty in control of his emotions, and aware of his decisions. We give him that advantage. It allows him to keep from being quick to anger. Other characters don't have that advantage.I think Jane can still make good choices.
>>918654The majority that voted to go get that dragon want it. Herb is the majority vote of anons. >>918662Of course she can still make good choices. The problem is she hasn't and it shouldn't be Herb's job to be her moral compass or in this case, "Don't be a cunt-o-meter."Honestly I'm not sure she's made "Evil" choices. She's just a grade a bitch.She has a tendency to blame everyone else for the negative results of her own actions.
>>918660Well I kind of want to talk about what our plan is for the feast. Do we even have the funds for it? I'd like to do a Kalua pig, but it sounds spendy.
>>918677Just won a gym battle we should have some dosh.
>>918680I thought he only gave us the badge and TM. I don't remember getting any dosh.
>>918667This argument is bothering people so this is the last I'll reply on this matter. >It shouldn't be Herb's job to help herNothing's forcing us to help her, but that's not a reason to refuse to help her either, especially seeing as she's become slightly more receptive to us over time instead of walling us. Her being a bitch also loses a lot of its edge when you realize that she might have perfectly understandable reasons for ending up that way (a popular speculation being that she was in a gang and left it for whatever reason). There seems to be an interesting subplot there, and I'm not keen on passing it up just because she's been a bitch.>>918677We should have ample money to feed everyone, if we decide to prepare simpler foods instead. But honestly, I think everyone would chip in for a big feast with good food if we just asked.
So I'm trying to catch female saladits and I finallyfind one and it calls for aid twice now and both times it call more females...
>>918684Does anyone remember the "stone soup" story? I'd like to do something like that eventually.
>>918691>offer to make some stone soup for the Hydreigon>he's utterly fascinated by how we made a stone broth taste so good>he becomes convinced that we are some sort of wizard
>>918686You're gonna get gangraped.
Seeing this pokemon quest brings back memories. Shame I never was able to play the 3ds pokemon games as I get headaches from the 3ds even when not using 3d mode.Got bored and started playing gale of darkness and colloseum again.
Can we all just agree on one thingHydreigon is a qt
>>918684We need to try and figure out what nature it was so we can prepare food of that flavor.
I'm perfectly fine with how things are going at the moment, I don't want to catch hydreigon and I don't think Jane is a lost cause. I hope both at least warm up to Herb a little eventually.
You know what I would like? We feed Hydreigon now and it remembers. Way later, it returns, now at its full potential, to challenge us. We beat it and it agrees to join us. But way later, you know. Now it just doesn't seem fit. Like Ash left Charizard after the first badge and retrieves it for the last.
>>918911Yeah, that could be neat. I'd be cool with that.
>>918911Cutiefly follows us so she can prove she is tough too?
>>919076Sure. Why not, huh?
>>919095I just wanna make sure. Also it will mean we get another low food cost Pokemon to make up for Gobble being Gobble.
What fucking level is this thing at? Deino doesn't even evolve into Zweilous until level 50.
>>919191He's at least level 64 to be fully evolved, which is ridiculous at this point.
>>919211It's not Shadowrun, we don't use Karma.
>>919212I just mean that because levels hardly mean anything in the way Gobble runs things.
>>919218Gobble plays the levels very soft, but the general gist of where it is between 1 and 100 is still a viable rule of thumb for how dangerous something is.We beat the Hydreigon up through sheer dumb luck, when, even malnourished, it could likely have outright killed us and our entire team if it felt like it.
>>919247Good point, but levels seem much more malleable.
>>919256It sticks to the anime type leveling scale. Even though a pokemon may or may not have beaten enough other pokemon to evolve, it will anyway if pushed to a certain point. Ash's Charmeleon, again, was one such pokemon. It most certainly did not beat enough pokemon to evolve, but it did because it got pissed at an Aerodactyl and needed to fly to beat it up.
>>919334So this could be a level 7 Hydreigon for all we know.>>918525>The middle one seems to reject this idea and even the concept that it needs to recover, but the two on the sides seem to disagree. They want food.Uhh, the lore states that only the middle head is the actual head. The other two heads do not have brains and function as the middle's arm. I don't buy this for a minute you hack!
>>919349Presumably it wouldn't evolve if its abilities weren't generally at the level that it would evolve at. I guarantee that if we fight it again, it won't be ending nearly as well as it did the first time.>other heads are brainlessThis was brought up before, but gobble's sticking with this interpretation. Frankly, I like it better the way gobble's doing it.
>>919349Obviously this Hydreigon developed multiple personality disorder. Maybe all Hydriegon do. Or maybe Loahnan Hydriegon are different. When something seems off, I like to think of it as an opportunity for something interesting.
So assuming we catch/befriend the Cutiefly and Hydriegon, we'll have 5 out of our 6 team members. What would be a good 6th, considering coverage?We have the following types>Grass>Poison>Rock>Normal>Fairy>Bug>Dark>DragonConsidering this, what pokemon would help fill in the gaps? Something that could deal with Ice types would be nice, though we could just get some fire moves
>>919771Whatever Pokemon we come across that wants to come with us.
>>919771ice is weak to rock isn't it? we have mace for that... what about dealing with steel types? almost all of our types are resisted by steel.
>>919861double checking that... yeah every type we have except dark is resisted by steel or immune in the case of bella's poison.of course we can learn moves that cover steel but still.
>>919861huh, I always thought rock type was weak to ice due to erosion or somethingAs for steel, Gobble knows a fighting move and Mace can learn some ground moves. Looking at this, we actually have pretty good coverage. Good jobs guys
>>919207Nah, he just got SOS Summoned at some point.
>>919771Honestly, >>919779 has it right (and assuming we already have Hydreigon is a major leap) though there's nothing wrong with some theoretical discussion.Ice is always a fantastic offensive element, though it's usually a poor pokemon element and better off as a move type.Fire is similarly excellent for offensive typing, although less so than Ice, it doesn't have as many weaknesses as a pokemon type.Either type would be pretty good for our team. Perhaps we could consider an alolan marowak, or an alolan sandslash.
>>920000These quads know what is up.
>>920028alolan marowak has 3 immunities with lightning rod plus ridiculous strength with a thick club. main reason he's OU right now if you care about such things....now that I think about it, A-Marowak is a bunch of boner puns waiting to happen, could be fun.
>>920028>>920065I can see a few problems with A-Marowak, but probably one of the more tame ghost alongside Drifloon and Misdreavous
What does everyone want for the teasebin?
>>920182Keira rubbing her surprisingly pert and somewhat larger than expected but against Herb's dick
>>920216>Keira getting herself off by rubbing against sleeping herbHot.
>>920182>>920234and Bella staring in horror/anger
>>920253Bella shouldn't see that! She's too young!
>>920318She doesn't have to see anything under the blanket. Just awkward shifting and Keira making a funny face.
>>920182Herb thinking really hard about baseball.
>>920318>>920328I'm actually surprised that Bella hasn't mouthed off to Keira telling her to back off.
>>920390She started last night. Herb just assumed she was sleepy and went to bed.
>>920390And even if she did, without Keira bringing it up, how would Herb or us even know? Maybe Keira really is moving in on papa.
>>920421>"Oh Bella, don't you worry. I'll be a better mommy than Laki could ever be. And your daddy is just so adorable! I just can't be without him! We'll be one big happy family!"
I posted this late into last thread, but at this point I don't see the cutiefly leaving us, even if the Hydreigon decides to. As such, I propose we begin coming up with names for both it and Best Frying Pan, since its been out best way of catchidng pokemon. It was suggested last thread that we name the frying pan after Grandpa.My personal suggestion for the cutiefly, depending on gender, is Lord/Lady Prof. Buzz von Brunerklein, the Dragon hunting expert.
>>920450The mental anguish will only improve the Worry Seed coffeeWe'll make millionsand after Bella gets used to Keira, we marry her and have a loving relationship based on mutual respect and friendship
>>920454The frying pan should be named Peter.I like the idea of a gentlemanly name for Cutiefly, maybe Layton? I'm sure we'll get the chance to know new pokes before we name them. If Keira's around, we can always get her to translate their chosen names for us.
>>9204971. You cheeky fuck, you get assorted butts for that pun.2. I always imagined the cutiefly as being a vaguely disgruntled british butler type, so Layton works perfectly.
>>920549I think the Cutiefly is a girl though
>>920580We haven't got a chance to check
>>920595Gobble has been using the term she for it.
I know Bella likes Laki, but I forget who our other Pokemon prefer, if its even been pointed out.
>>920580Miriam then, get her a little white bow/ maid headress
>>920602Gobble like whoever feeds him, Mace is ambivalent.
>>920580Yeah, but I suggested a Lord/Lady type thing. Maybe Claira would be a good name if it's a girl
>>920606This is better
>>920602I don't think Gobble and Mace care. Bella is the HerbxLaki shipper
How will the others react when we tell them about our wet, naked night with Keira?
>>920641The first night after Bella hatched Mace and Gobble were said to not seem like they approved of how close we were sleeping to Laki. I don't think they have cannon ships though.
>>920698Laki will tease us, Hana will get really quiet, Jane would be upset at our impropriety, Polu would privately ask if any funny business happened, Val would worry about hypothermia.Could make for a good lewdbin, getting to see everyone's imagined version of events.
>>920698Pulo: High fiving us and congratulating.Laki: laughing her ass offValerie: blushing and trying to ignore the talkHana: excuses herself to the bathroom, masturbates furiously for 3 hours before coming back out and heading to bed at 4 pm, exhausted from her extended "girl time"
>>920738>Polu's had so little exposure in this quest that people are getting his name wrong almost 15 threads in
>>920843It's because everyone wants to bone a waifu and don't care about the othersSaid truth about gobble quest
>>920843Don't worry, when he reveals himself as The Big Bad, he'll get plenty of exposure.>>920866>It's because everyone wants to bone a waifu and don't care about the others>Said truth about gobble quest>Sad truth about all questsFTFY
>>920866I care about Polu, it just has turned out we don't have much overlapping interested after our fight.
>>920843Damn it. I thought it was Polu, but then I had been reading over one of the old threads and Gobble started calling him Pulo instead. At this point, he neets some character development so he can get past his identity crisis.
>>920878He isn't the big bad, he is a hero. Ready to take on any challenge for the islands with his bandanna and surf board.
>>920900Then let's rephrase it to Main Antagonist.
>>920920You mean secondary. Professor Palm is obviously the main antagonist.
>>920950>implying it won't be Valerie's parents
>>920950Don't you mean that one business guy who's friends with palm?
>>920982>implying it won't be the kid of Robin and Kat.
>>920982>implying that it wasn't US ALL A LOOOOONG
>>920982>falling for the obvious red herringIts so obvious the big corp should be the bad guy, that it can't possibly be them.>>920994That's Val's dad.
>>921001Jane was right about Herb all along, and we didn't realize it. We just thought she was a crazy bitch who hated us for no reason.
>>921021Like I said before, we are a sleeper agent ready to destroy this region when the special phrase is said. Then the rest of the quest is "The Herb Identity"
>>921021>We thought we were fighting to stop some ancient end of the world prophecy.>We were actually completing it.
>>921021>Fall asleep one night>Wake up with every team leader's numbers on speeddial.
>>921043*every female team leader's numberftfy
>>921032>Keira's elders cautioned her to be wary of outsiders>She brushed it off without realizing they were trying to stop her from aiding Herb
>>921043>Turns out this was our plan all long>all our mons are actually super evil/neutral >quest is now evil Pokemon team leader quest
>>921096>the real hero has to battle all of our admins to find the secret to defeating us>each admin/harem member has an ingredient>cook off with the secret recipe>have to make a better dish than Herb to sway the pokemon about to destroy the island
>>921096>Hydreigon was one of Herb's old pokemon that he hid away on the island for when the day came
>>921021What's our evil goal then?
>>921162To make coffee so good that it destroys society as we know it.Thats why we had a vision in our dreams, it was a message programmed into our brains by our former self.
>>921162Taking over the island and industrializing it So the exact opposite of that Militia force
>>921235No anon. We are going to do them all a favor. Fug wants us to turn it all the way back. All people have to go. It is actually Mewtwo and Violet manipulating us.
>>921173I am very, very satisfied that I got Satan trips when suggesting that coffee. I do wonder though, what would happen if worry seeds were planted in soil? Would they grow into a worry tree? Leech seeds seem to grow into little sprouts, but what about seed bomb? Seed flare? Bullet seed?We need to dig a small plot in our backyard before we leave the island, plant a citrus berry and some worry seeds.
>>921449I don't think they have the energy to last that long. But worry seed coffee could work if we juice it somehow. Maybe Worry Seed on a Pokemon that traces Tropius's harvest ability.
>>921505Plants are able to gain energy through photosynthesis, anon.
The seeds probably have a very short lifespan. Even if you planted them in perfect soil and gave them everything a plant needs it'd still die shortly after regardless.
>>921627Wait, which move are we talking about? I can see leech seeds burning fast and bright, but for the others I think we need to run an experiment to know.
>>921627"It is better to have tried and failed, than to have never tried at all">the first man to ever fail miserably at sucking his own dick.
>>921732We've all tried to make that magic happen. If we could, we'd never get anything done.
>>921732>>921744>they can't suck their own dicksIt's more work than you think, and frankly I don't consider it worth the trouble compared to just jerking off
>>921978At least you have the option.>tfw lanky, unflexible skeleton
>>921978>He can suck his own dickThe fuck
>>921978You and your fucking removable spine should just go suck off in the corner. You may stay in the room, but only because its impressive you even admitted you can actually suck your own dick.
>>921978Did you train for that? Is there a guide you should follow? Do you need to start praying to the yoga gods? Asking for personal reasons.
This might have already been answered, but I'm drawing a blankAre Hana's prosthetics covered by fake skin, or are they like Adam Jenson's where they're human shaped but clearly mechanical?
>>922461Impression I've gotten is black carbon-fiber sort of shell but very human-like otherwise.
>>922461it is clearly mechanical. It is black with etched designs. However, there is a sort of smooth soft silicate covering over it that gives it a skinlike feel, and it can be mistaken for a glove or a sleeve at first glance. The issue with this is that there is little to no heat produced behind the cover, so it will always have a smooth, cool/cold feeling to it. This is most likely one of the main reasons behind Hana's intorverted behavior, and the reasoning behind her constant somewhat terrible sweater wearing habits that makes Herb feel sad inside.Tldr: Hana has black plastic covering, and it makes her self conscious along with horrific burns.
>>922594I wonder if she has tactile feedback. Also what the power source is, are they removable, etc.
>>922594I move to get her a fancy dress with those super long gloves
>>920234throwing support behind this even if I am 7 hours late
>>922707Ugh, we need to have a gala episode. So many outfits, so many dances. Can't imagine there are a ton of opportunities in Loanah though. Maybe we can do doubles contests? That'd be a good reason to do some dancing.I said this late last thread, but I want Herb and Val to tango. I want Laki/Jane to dip Herb. I want Keira to teach us local dance. I want Herb in a suit. The imagery of Hana in a ball gown just rekindles these desires.
>>921978Is that you Skinwalker? Where the fuck did you go?! We missed you in the last war against the Goons!
>>923364Sorry anon, swing and a miss. Everything you said went over my head.
>>923973I think he was trying to make a joke in RP terms, but messed up somewhat.
>>923973Also, good to see you decided to stick around, Dickman.
>>924043No, there's just this one guy in a game me and a bunch of guys on /k/ would play. And Skinny was semi-famous for being able to suck his own dick.
>>924658Sounds like /k/ was up to some interesting games.
>>924704Oddly enough, it was just a minor country simulator. It was terrible, broken, and fun because everyone hated each other.
For those who haven't seen Gobble's Twitter, the tease bin is done.Keira is adorable.
>>925371Thanks for the heads up bro
>>925371Kind of feel bad for her. Having SPIRITUAL BELIEFS advising you not fugg or fool around would be the worst.And of course Herb is hung like an elephant. Why wouldn't he be? Unless Keira just has no sense of comparison, but Gobble implied otherwise.
>>925389Seems she's further up the slippery slope than Keira was though.But that's going to be an awkward (and hilarious) conversation if they ever get to talking about sex.I get the feeling Herb is going to die of embarrassment, but not because of the islander beliefs regarding big dicks.
>>925409*than Claire was.Excuse me while I wake up properly.
>>925389Well we did roll rather well for it.
>>925371>oh myPoor Keira. Corrupted by accident, and no relief in sight.
>>925431Doesn't seem as if it's Catholicism-level sexual taboo though, just misconception and if I were to guess a certain level of fear, both spiritually based and the usual sort.Nothing a frank discussion wouldn't clear up, so long as the person she talked to wasn't bent on giving her misleading information.
>>925389This probably explains why she was pondering whether her teachers were right about outsiders being corrupting influences on people.>>925425It was just a 29 though.
>>925444>>925463>ignoring the d12 and girth roll>forgetting we take best of 3
>>925444>29>29 inchesThere was also a more "official" rolls done.>>917573 Length>>917580 GirthNeedless to say John's Johnson is very impressive
>>925371I liked the little bits of lore in the lewds. Seems the natives have the same ideas about dicks as the greeks did, as well as some of the casualness about nudity(though that's fairly common in tropical regions)wonder if the island's Olympics(sadly the international ones aren't) are like the ancient greeks
>>925482Good question.I'd put it as a solid maybe.And yeah, lore in lewds is a Good Thing.
>>925469I missed those posts.Laki's amusement with us makes even more sense now. I mean, we did sleep next to her half-naked once. Presumably she got an eyeful, too. Maybe not to the same extent as Keira, but...
>>925469>>925511With Bo3 we got a 93 on a general scale. Anyway you look at it Herb has small feet.
>>925511wait, when'd Herb sleep next to Laki?only thing I can think of is when she was going for the golden combo, and I'm pretty sure John slept in his own bed
>>925538Best of 3 was 72, not 93.
>>925555The test was unrelated and someone just trying to figure out how to dice.
>>925549Thread five.>You wake up [sic]. >You’re forcefully pushed in the other direction. “Woah! You mainlanders aren’t so uptight after all.” You look over and see Laki getting up. “But you’d better at least buy me a drink.”>“I-I didn’t mean to-”>“Relax, Soft Hands. Just bustin’ your balls.” She smirks down. “Speaking of, why did you sleep out here if you had a tent?”>You look up at her confused. Slowly, your eyes fall to your shorts. You quickly curl up under the sound of her laughter.
>>925593oh yeahwell, that's 2/5ths2/6 if you include Polu of the waifus who've seen Herb's dick, who's next?I vote Val, leave Hana for last. Better to hear it through the grapevine with her imagination
>>925469But.Can he suck his own dick?Poor Herb. He doesn't need to be the subject of Keira's sexual awakening. Not without being invited to the party. I know I wouldn't want to get felt up without my permission. That's creepy. (I would want to get felt up with my permission.)I'm looking forwards to the mysticism dropping and Keira finding out that Herb is fundamentally a normal boy, if a bit on the polite and modest side. Somebody needs to talk to that girl about the normalcy of sexual urges. She is, after all, only human.
[Soooo, turns out my dad got his car trapped in trapped in the snow because he had a beer shortage emergency. This will probably take awhile. It's looking unlikely that we'll have a thread tonight. Still an outside chance, but please don't wait up for me to get back.]
>>925656that sounds like a job for laki, but with val and hana listening in for shenanigans
>>925371>Keira slowly becoming addicted to our dong>The bits of lore that we got with the lewd>That sick character development and internal conflict This was actually really nice, Gobble is a fucking genius.We really need to work out though, put some meat on our bones. Dont like being seen as a little fuck boy by these islanders.
>>925628Even if it were something just a post long, reading the girls gossiping about Herb and Hana getting distracted sounds like it might be a good basis for a bin down the line.>>925656Yeah, someone needs to talk with Keira.She doesn't deserve all that conflict and angst over something that when all is said and done is universal and natural.
>>925673Good luck.Seriously, what the fuck is with this week and nothing going to plan?
>>925673Hope everything is safe! Stay warm out there.
>>925673Good luck with that, Gobble.
>>925679>don't like being seen as a little fuck boy>being seen asAnon, I...>>925673Think of it as an adventure. A really shitty one, but still an adventure.
>>925673Please be safe
>>925673>trapped in the snow because he had a beer shortage emergency>beerHe deserves it. Should let him sit it out for a while, teach him a lesson.
>>925656>>925679the obvious thing to do is become a gymnast/freerunner. Herb gets to reenact all his Tarzan fantasies in a real jungle, and gets to achieve every guy's dreamHerb needs to help civilize Keira, though the standard, time tested methods
>>925704Think of it as an adventure. A really shitty one, but still an adventure.When has an adventure in fiction not been shitty for the characters involved somehow?
>>925673>trapped in the snow because he had a beer shortage emergencySrs business.Good luck with that. Keep yourself as warm as you can. Stay safe.
>>925371>sweet, gentle, innocent Herb has been robbed of his innocence and purityFUCKING DELETE RAPIST KEIRA
>>926035Non canon lewd binHe's still a virgin thoAlso means that most of the natives have smaller than average peens
>>926078or Herb is a total barbarianin other news, I found a picture of Herb's face while he was "asleep"
>>926087>Implying John isn't actually the purest thing alive>implying he wasn't dreaming about the cosmos and the meaning of life or some shit the entire time
>>926190https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me6UvkXgXjgHerb's ultimate dream

>>926254>gets molested in his sleep>not pure
>>926304>implying Herb didn't go for them oranges
>>926334>frog posterWhat's next, you hate skub?
>>926357Go shove some of your beloved skub up your assJust like how Herb is gonna colonize dat native ass
>>926377Fuck you skub saved my life in viet fucking nam
>>926395probably needed the lube while you were committing your war crimeshope you ended up like Lieutenant Dan, ya cuntSkub factories should be burned and the recipe eliminated from the historical record
random, thought... is pyukumuku mucus the pokemon equivalent of skub?some people in alola use the mucus as a sunscreen/ skin cream apparently....now that I think about it how would a pyukumuku perform in this quest...
>>926417>forest gumpNo joke you just made me almost fucking cry
>>926417Look, I've done extensive research on skub, and I can assure you that most of the negative qualities attributed to it simply aren't true. Look for the primary sources about many of the skub rumors passed around on anti-skub websites, and you'll realize that most of them are fabricated and only continue to be believed based on word of mouth instead of proper investigation.
>>926490that's what Big Skub wants you to thinkLook at actual studies that weren't funded by them, you'll see the proof that Skub has dangerous effects on both physical and mental health
>>926538Well if you look at the Russian studies from 2011 you would find that skub stops globule warming and is an adhesive used to keep rockets togetherCheckmate
>>926538Sir, I conducted two research studies myself on the matter of skub, specifically pertaining to the rumor about ass aneurysms, and found the correlation (+0.003) to be well beneath that needed to be significant on even a lenient 95% certainty hypothesis test.Are you calling me a liar?
>>926592>using Russian studies as proofhave you seen their lab notes? A fucking intern fell into the skub tanks and was dissolved before anyone noticed he was missing. You want Russians in your Skub? These are the people you want studying and manufacturing your skub?I am a proud American and will have no Russian influence in my life
>>926652You realize that skub was an American invention, right?
>>926652You want me to bust out some American sudies fuck boy?STEPHEN FUCKING HAWKING MADE THE SKUB FORMULABILL GATES USES SKUB TO MAKE PCSAPPLE GOT THE IDEA FOR THE I PHONE FROM SKUBWHEN HARVARD DID A STUDY ON SKUB THEY FOUND THAT SKUB IS THE KEY TO INSTANT INTERSTELLAR TRAVL CHECKFUCKINGMATE
>>926757and you realize that it's production has been outsourced to Russia and latin nations?You haven't even researched the production of that liquid hitler! Enjoy your gyno and male pattern baldness>>926628Ass aneurysms come from use of skub in high humidity and sub 40 degree weather over 10 years. I doubt your study was long enough, considering we are just now starting to realize the horrible effects of Skub over time
>>926840Children from the ages of 4-10 who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and have been treated with skub all have had their illness curedAll men who have faced the "negative side effects of skub" were diagnosed with a terminal illness and were predicted to only live an average of 21 yearsAll others have faced no side effects The industry in Russia and Latin nations is from international skub producers BASED IN AMERICA
>>926357>>926377>>926395>>926417>>926463>>926468>>926490>>926538>>926592>>926628>>926652>>926757>>926792>>926840>>926894Take it to /skub/, boys.
Looks like if we ever get an Alolan Grimer/Muk we're naming it "Skub".
>>926894Last response, its clear that you skub lovers are unwilling to see reason>Children from the ages of 4-10 who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and have been treated with skub all have had their illness curedIndependent research has shown that skub usage while pregnant causes irreversible skub addiction in the child. Thanks to many government programs(caused by skub lobbyists) promoting skub, these children have been staving off the effects of their addiction. With the rise of the internet, we have gotten to see the effects of a skub addict, raised since birth on it, when taken off their drug. The cabal of skub pushers have been giving addicts their drug to "cure" their terminal addiction>All men who have faced the "negative side effects of skub" were diagnosed with a terminal illness and were predicted to only live an average of 21 yearsGee, wonder where that illness came from. Look at their mitochondria becoming unhooked, and studies on monkeys have found this is caused by skub being absorbed through hair follicles. These people will literally cook themselves due to skub>All others have faced no side effects not even gonna touch how silly this is, the effects are based on metabolism, smaller men are going to react faster, aka during the length of your "studies">The industry in Russia and Latin nations is from international skub producers BASED IN AMERICAAnd skub factories are being shut down here, shipping our jobs overseas. We have never had less skub produced in America than now, despite demand staying roughly the same. We now import 60 percent of skub, with little control over the purity of it.
>>926990Don't you get it? This miracle plant is the main ingredient in Skub!
>>926840I have no idea how you managed to confirm that to be true when there haven't been any longitudinal studies on the matter of the ass aneurysms. I checked extensively during the planning period for the second study, and the only one being conducted at the time was an 8-year study that would be somewhere in its second year today.Nothing about your assertions add up in any way.
>>925721>>925757[Silly anon. What sort of native girl has a fantasy about being colonized?Totally unrealistic and doesn't like up with my life experiences at all.][Sorry I missed today]>>926990[10,000 times yes]
>>927023thanks for the lewdbin Gobble100% canon, right?
>>927007>independent studiesI'm just going to destroy your argument right thereAll independent studies have all been traced back to a research facility in China which has also been trying to profit off of global warming and our economic collapse So if you were a true American you would do these studies with out any funding of any kind,like I did>Skub addictsHoly shit that theory has higher autism amounts then vaccines causing autism I have actually never seen or heard that theory before>metabolism Same as above >some how it's skubs fault for the jobs shipping outBlame the Chinese for creating fake studies and conspiracies to destroy the Skub market All in all you're a stupid motherfucka and should read a book
Random question, but is there room for two Pokémon quests? I was thinking of a Team Rocket/Team Skull kinda thing
>>927023Oh hi gobble, did you want to get colonized by a powerful assertive American Kat analogue? She'd chop your forest quick, you lumberjack you
>>927083[Yup!]>>927177[Yes! Pokemon is huge. There are so many ways to do a quest with it. Do it do it do it.]
>>927177do itI think we've had like 5 pokemon quests going at once before
>>927177Don't let your memes be dreams. Go for it. If you link to it here I'd definitely give it a whirl.
>>926990I named my A-Muk Slick. Skub sounds good too.
>>927177go for it man, just make sure you actually have the time to run it regularly if it takes off, it always sucks when a cool quest dies in its infancy.
>>927177Do it, I always participate in the Mystery Dungeon one thats been going on
>>927228A Three Kingdoms Questfag hereI can agree with this, it's depressing when something never sees it's conclusion
>>927229Thats a fine amount of wall deleting antics right there.
>>927177I'd totally play a Team Skull quest, or a Team Rocket quest if it was faithful enough to the early gens.
>>925371>https://twitter.com/GobbleQMYou know I can just imagine Kiera expressing her concerns about Herb corrupting her to Laki and Laki just laughing."Herb? That Herb? Please, that guy wouldn't take advantage of a drunk whore offering a free roll in the hay. In fact he would probably take her home and give her his bed to sleep in so that she could wake up to a big breakfast in the morning."
>>927498This needs to happen now
>>927498She wouldn't exactly be wrong, either.>>927023Sounds like no one froze to death or got ran over by moose.
>>927498>>927537Needs to happen right after Laki does exactly that. Just gets totally hammered and spends the night very overtly reaching into his pants.
>>927554That doesn't sound like Laki.She'd pin him down first.
>>927568>"its so cute that you think your consent is a factor">passes out
>>927568Rapist Quest, starring Herb as the rapee.
>>927588Herb a little bit more confident than that. Taller too.
>>927587Well I mean according to the lewd bin Herb has already been raped once.At least I assume unknowingly being used as a sex toy counts as rape.
>>927865Technically, rape requires penetration. It's still sexual assault, but from a legal standpoint she would be, at the harshest to her, charged with child molestation and tried as an adult. But it's Loahnah, so potentially maybe Herb could be tried as an adult for "corrupting clergy" or something. This sort of thing is pretty murky in the U.S. as is.Socially, it's definitely kind of fucked up. A whole lot depends on if Herb finds out and how he feels about it. But if anyone can lay down boundaries without judgement, it's Herb.
>>927588I miss Laki "Bullying".
>>927937If it were me, I'd have to put it under the "super hot but also just a bit messed up" category and no one would be in trouble
>>927568>tries to pin us down>hydreigon appears because he wants food
>>928122Hydreigon is probably going to be the most effective contraceptive ever.Why?Because he'll be the biggest cock-block going.Probably knowingly and giving zero fucks about it, all the while finding the whole thing hilarious.I mean, Gobble has the potential to do the same, but it's funnier with Hydreigon, because who'd be crazy enough to confront him over it.
>>928298Imagine Gobble as a Snorlax and Hydreigon doing it together. They're both hungry but have a mutual respect for each other because they are the only Pokémon who can eat as much for each. Both are starving and give ZERO fucks.
>>928298I'm hoping Cutiefly ships Keira and HerbEvery pokemon needs to have a favorite ship they push for
>>928538>>928538Wouldn't be surprised with mace ends up shipping us with Hana and hydreigon probably wouldn't give a shit about what the peasents are doing
>>928538Please no.It was cute at first, but getting every bonding scene ruined by one of the pokemon that don't ship it is going to get old really fast.
>>928563Agreed, Pokemon can prefer to have others they prefer, but I think only Bella pushing for one thing is enough.
I'm not a fan of Cutiefly or Hydreigon joining our team I wouldn't mind befreinding then I just want that Murkrow we met.
>>927937I think you could get her for sexually assault if not rape.Not that I would. >>928574Yeah well one guy wanted a fire bug thing. We don't always get what we want.
>>928574Im pretty sure Hydreigon is way to powerful to be in our team anyway.And i want to save a slot for in out team for if we ever run into a Mareanie. We will never lose a battle with a Mareanie on our team.
>[Spoiler]Hydreigon starts shipping Bella with Herb[/spoiler]
>>928631>wanting MareanieShit stallfag confirmed
>>928632>Cutiefly starts shipping Herb with Hydreigon
>>928632You put the arrow inside the spoilers>No
>>928631>Mareaniejesus Christ, all those resistancesThat is a godly looking tank
>>928643It is the new standard for stall teams. Regen + Toxic + Recover + High Defenses. GF knew what they were doing, but they still made so many shitty new Pokemon comp wise.
>>925371>starts out cute and silly>turns into rapeHERB IS NOT FOR LEWD
>>928654She even said so! She's talking about him corrupting her! But in reality she's the island temptress corrupting the pure missionary!Herb must be kept Safe!
>>928636IT A LEGITIMATE TACTIC GOD DAMMIT.Besides we need to balance out our team. They cant all be full force attackers man, we need some defense as well. Plus look how cute this thing is.>>928643And if we get one with Merciless then its game over for anyone that gets poisoned. My girl Mareanie is a fucking goddess.
>>928659>we need some defense>3 out of 3 of our Pokemon have defensive stats as their highest stats
>>928659I'm with >>928662 You're just talking out of your ass to get one of your favorite mons.We're never getting a Nidoking, why should I help you get your waifu?
>>928656>tfw you go out to colonize an island, but get colonized by the natives instead>>928662In case it isn't obvious, he just wants it because it's 20 tons of pure smogon.
>>928659God damn, where was this when we were playing Kat? It's like it was custom made for her style
>>928673It's Avatar all over again.
>>928662But we don't use them as defensive Pokemon.Going balls to the wall with Focus Punch and Mega Drain has been fine so far thanks too our godlike rolls, but we need to think about actual strategy for the future.>>928668>>928673Look buddies i'm just saying Mareanie is a great Pokemon that would be great on our team for those times when full offense is simply not enough. If you disagree then that's fine, im just making my case.
>wanting a shitty cannibal legitimately poisonous toxic monster on the teamI'd much rather Herb get a Corsola. They're most beautiful creatures on the planet that must be protected.
>>928685We have had like 3 fights so far and movepools are still largely limited. Also Focus Punch was used to cause terrain bullshit which is a strategy in case you forgot. Stop shilling your stupid stallmon.
>>928690There is only room for one rock in my heart.
>>928685But we have been using actual tacticsWe've used focus punch to mess with terrain and we fucked over a gym leaders tactic using worry seed
>>928697I'm surprised there hasn't been an image made of a post complaining about Mareanie/Toxapex and it's a Corsola behind the keyboard
>>928690Corsola is shit and always will be.>>928691Your not wrong my friend but i still don't know why your so aggressively against Mareanie. Does playing the defensive long game really offend you that muc
