Not actually cancelled edition!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pokemon%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/GobbleQMPastebin: http://pastebin.com/tSNKt0WmGeneral rules:There is a 5 minute voting period after each post. Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible. There are occasional roles to keep things organic, but mostly it goes by voters choice. Unless specified otherwise, the best of 3 rolls is the result, and rolling high is good.Last time: You and Robin had a double battle against two trainers, and barely one. After that, you arrived in Kindleville, took a shower, and got some free grub. You agreed to help train Vance, in exchange for him doing everything you say, and paying for food. He also agreed to battle you, once both of you reach your goals. You picked up some Pokemon supplies, then went to the local museum with Robin. When approached by a scientist, she hid for reasons unclear to you, and you agreed to follow him to the back rooms. There, you paid him almost all of your money in exchange for him reviving your Skull Fossil, which would get you a Cranidos. On your way out, you stole
>>29469054What'd we steal?Go ask Robin what's up
You palm a small fossil. It’s hard to describe the shape, but if you had to guess, it’s almost like a jaw.Just as you’re making your exit you hear the professor say something, although he doesn’t turn to look at you. “Young lady,” his words linger in the air for what feels like a long time. “When you come back, just come directly to me. If one of the other staff members asks, just tell them you have an appointment and that I’m expecting you.”Maybe it’s just because your heart is beating a mile a minute, or maybe it’s something else, but something about the way he said that sounded off.He doesn’t say anything else though, and you make your way out.Robin is easy to spot just outside the museum entrance. She’s trying to not be seen, which makes her stick out much worse than if she was just casually hanging around.>Ask her why she hid>Tell her what happened>Tell her what happened, leave out the stealing>Something else

What great timing, op. I just got back.Unfortunately I only managed around 130 pictures of varying quality. I'm sure I have some repeats of yours too.
>>29469451Keep up the good work, anon.
You ask her why she hid.“‘Doctor’ Hornbeam is a hack!” She says. It’s loud enough to show her contempt, but still quiet enough that she’s obviously careful nobody else can hear. “His research doesn’t make any sense! I’m positive he’s stolen research from at least one of Professor Fir’s papers, but I can’t prove it.” She must be pretty passionate about the scientific community.“That still doesn’t explain why you hid,” you comment.“He’s also… He’s a bit of a creep.” She looks at her feet. “He’s also an associate of my dad. I don’t know what they do together exactly. Whatever it is, he keeps me out. He keeps me out of a lot of things. I just don't want dad to know I'm back until I visit. He's already probably mad I've taken so long.”The self-conscious way she was hiding then, and even now, is just embarrassing to you. It just won't do at all. "Well if you want to hide from people, you can't look like it. You have to act like you belong so you don't stick out. Here, watch me."You see a group of people head into the museum, and join their crowd. As they pay to get in, you shift your way in closer, making it look like your having a conversation with them.A few minutes later, you return back to Robin. "It's all about confidence." She nods her understanding.You explain what happened after you followed Dr. Hornbeam. When you get to the part about paying for the revival, Robin's expression turns from passive listening to shock. "The Pokemon League reimburses museums for fossil revivals." She tells you. "It's supposed to encourage bringing back rare species. They're not supposed to charge for it."That son of a bitch! You should report him! Or maybe that's not a good idea. You feel the heavy stolen fossil in your pocket.>Storm back>Deal with it tomorrow. It's time Robin faced her dad, and you got your badge>Something else
>>29469492>>Deal with it tomorrow. It's time Robin faced her dad, and you got your badgewe already got our "reimbursement" anyway
>>29469492>>Deal with it tomorrow. It's time Robin faced her dad, and you got your badge
>>29469492Storm back in! Preferably with Devon out of his Pokeball, get that firestone back and our dosh. If he doesn't give it back go talk to another scientist around here
>>29469492>Deal with it tomorrow. It's time Robin faced her dad, and you got your badgeWe'll just have to steal something from the guy, then. No reason to take it out on the museum.
>>29469492>Deal with it tomorrow. Let's take Robin's mind off of this by getting her a present.
>>29469492>Ask Robin for a suggestion on what to doWell if she knows him, and knows the museum/general processes, might as well see if she has advice.
>>29469539>>29469546>>29469568>>29469492Lets dig up dirt on him and make this personal. Once we have some leverage we can really make him pay.
>>29469481I thought I had more time since I thought it would be delayed and decided to go shooting. Then it got re announced when I got there. Still a good thing though.>>29469492Deal with it tomorrow
>Jaw fossilOh I hope it's a Tyrunt! Those little things are cute and pretty strong.I want to pet an 8ft T-rex too.
>>29469492>>Deal with it tomorrow. It's time Robin faced her dad, and you got your badgeMeh, let's just steal more of his shit later. It will all work out in the end. Honor among theives and all.
>>29469492Well, that makes our stealing all his shit a totally legitimate choice! When we come back tomorrow we should steal absolutely everything in his office.
>>29469705No, we should return the fossil before we confront him, that way there's absolutely NOTHING he has as leverage, and we can try to get it back, and more for not reporting his ass.
You sigh, releasing your anger as best as you can. "We'll deal with that tomorrow. It's time you saw your dad."Robin hesitates, and things it over. Finally, she gives a gesture of affirmation. It's obviously forced though.The inside of the gym is typically steamy. There are a handful of people shuffling out from the bleachers. The arena has rocks scattered about, several feet high. Some piles of rubble and small craters are also littering the field. It looks like there was a pretty intense battle here. Your eyes widen slightly as you notice jets and walls of fire shooting up grates on the ground periodically."Robin!" A gruff booming voice shouts out. "You've certainly taken your time. Tell me, how is your little Flareon doing?" An older, heavy set man gestures to her from across the arena. There's a good distance between where you're standing and him, but you can hear him clear as day. The sizzling anger in his tone gives his words a biting edge.Robin hesitates. She's not sure how to respond. She looks to you.>Encourage her to be firm, and tell him the truth>You're staying out of this>Silently mouth instructions to her on how to lie. "Flareon is doing great!">Something else
>>29469760Ooh, blackmailI like it
>>29469780>Encourage her to be firm, and tell him the truth
>>29469780Encourage her and offer to kick her dad's ass if things go south

>>29469869I'd say Espeon/Umbreon/Sylveon are superior evolutionary choices.
>>29469823Thank you anon.So, are we gonna end up taking the heat here, or will Robin and daddy dearest keep focused on each-other, I wonder.
>>29469780>The sizzling anger in his tone gives his words a biting edge.I'm worried now. >Encourage her to be firm, and tell him the truth>If he goes full "YOU AREN'T MY DAUGHTER" bitch him out for being a shit father
>>29469909true, but its more about making an immediate "fuck you Dad! I'm gonna live my life the way I want to!" and Jolteon ain't bad. cover her geodude's weakness towards water
>>29469915Kat will be seen as a negative influence on her even before we get to the /u/ sheananigans
>>29469780If that's what she has to deal with, no wonder it's so easy to get her to rebel.
>>29469780>Encourage her to be firm, and tell him the truthgive her a smile and a nod. "You've got this Robin. You'll be fine'
>>29469915He's gonna be steamed and pull out his like, third-badge-level team to try and put us in our place.
>>29469926He'd have to be pretty retarded to threaten to disown her over this.So if he does, he deserves whatever he gets.
>>29469944Of course anon. Dad seems like he'd be more affronted by DARING to influence her towards non-fire pokes than anything related to her romantic life, really.
>>29469964>not his optional bonus boss team
What if he's surprised by her sudden strong will and sees us as a positive influence for teaching her daughter to stand up for herself and gives us his blessing?
>>29470068I like this picture more than I feel comfortable with
>>29470062Eh, I figured he'd want a little bit of plausible deniability.
You put your hand on her shoulder and mouth your lips. "Be firm" you say quietly. She looks appreciative, and loosens her shoulders a bit.Her father's Houndour comes walking out from behind him. As it spots her, it runs over. There's a slight but noticeable limp to the way it moves. With your words and this scene, Robin gathers her courage. "I'm not evolving Eevee into a Flareon. He doesn't want to."It's easy to see that her father isn't used to not getting his way. "What?""I don't want to evolve Eevee. And for that matter, I don't want to help you with this stupid gym anymore!""You have a legacy to uphold. You have a duty to me and this gym.""What about your duty? Look at the limp on Houndour! How many matches was he in today?"His face is flushed with rage. The color of his face is the same as Robin gets, but the look of him makes it feel wrong. "ENOUGH! I won't-""NO!" Robin cuts him off. "It's never enough, is it? They do everything for you. They give it their best every day and you just demand more without a second thought. They put their dreams aside and you just stomp on them!"It doesn't sound like it's about his Pokemon anymore."Robin! I am your father! You-"She cuts him off again. "My father died when my mom left!"There's a stunned silence. You put your hand on her shoulder, then he turns his attention on you. "What ideas has this little gutter trash been filling your head with?">Go ballistic (write-in)>Challenge him to a battle>There are other badges you can get.

>>29470334yeah, let him stew on that one for a while.

>>29470301We have 2 pokemon that are at an advantage against pure fire, and 1 that is neutral. [destiny, devon | vlad]
if we fight, he's mad. won't be thinking clearly and his pokes are tired and worn out. might be easy.on the other hand, he might pull out the big guns and stomp us like a bug
>>29470192>There are other badges you can get. Take Robin and leave.Hell, even if we still want this badge, better to let both of them have a day or two to calm down/stew on things first.

Maybe it's time we investigated our first plot lead, the robbery of the starter pokemon and not-shit pokedex.The Prof said it happened between Kindletown and Chloroville, so it shouldn't be far.

Robin looks angrier than you ever see her. "You do not get to talk to my friend that way! You think you're so tough? You think the league is going to take you? I bet I could beat you right-"You gentle stop her, and step forward."Nothing whatsoever." You answer his question calmly. "The words were hers. You do a pretty good job of dissuading her all by yourself." You turn to her. "The only trash I see here used to play at being this girl's father. Apparently it doesn't even bother with that pretense any longer. Come on Robin. He's not worth out time."She begins to follow you out, but then stops. "Wait." She walks back to her father."Good," he says. "I'm glad to see you've come to your senses. We'll discuss this-" He stops as she reaches him. She grabs a Pokemon from her belt and points it at her fathers. Wordlessly, she returns it to the Pokeball, and walks back to you. Without stopping or looking, she tosses a key backwards.You both exit the gym. Her face is expressionless.>Say something>Do something

You walk with her. She doesn't say anything or give any indication of what's in her head right now. Her pace is brisk, and even with her short legs, you almost have trouble keeping up.You're almost out of town by the time she stops. It's a wooded area. Under other circumstances, you're sure it would look pretty, but not now.The silence is broken as she lets out a scream and kicks a tree. She hit's it a few more times before she breaks down sobbing. You decide a hug is probably the best thing you can offer right now. You walk in behind her and embrace her. She breaks away to your surprise, but then you see it was only so she could face you and hug you back.Once again, her tears stain your shirt.After what seems like a bittersweet eternity, she looks up to you.

So, I was put some thought in to a possible name for us back when we were at the orphanage, since we told Robin that all we had was a number. What does FA-XXXX-NVC-162 sound like to everyone, FA for female abandoned, XXXX is to be replaced with suspected year of birth, NVC for Novum City, and 162 because she was the 162 orphan at that orphanage.Any thoughts?
>>29471154Do whatever you feel makes you happy-you can do anything. But whatever you pick, I'll be keeping you company until you get bored of me

>>29471339>What do you mean Robin? No, it's just a coincidence that we've been going in the same direction for a month.>No, why would I follow you?
>>29471335We only need two digits for year of birth
>>29471335Orphanages will give a child a name if they don't have one.
>>29471335I'm going to give you a 0/10 on the troll attempt.Good trolling is always subtle, and going maximum Brave New World at the first opportunity is decidedly unsubtle.

"Whatever you want." She hugs you closely once more. Her face is hot against your chest. "you are a smart girl. You have a lot more options than I do. You are smart enough and pretty enough you could do whatever you wanted. Just remember that your father should not dominate the decision; this is for you, not for, in spite of, or caused by him".Despite the seriousness of the moment, you can't help but feel like you're becoming quite the sage since you started your journey. The mental image of you dressing in a robe and lecturing people while stroking a fake beard doesn't have time to fully form as Robin asks, "Can I travel with you until I decide?"You can't help but let out a laugh. You thought that was a given. You hug her back in affirmation. "You can travel with me as long as you'd like."It's getting late.>Head to the Pokecenter>See if you two can find Vance>Something else

>>29471508Huh, misread your first post. The exact phrasing back in thread 4.2 was "As far as the system was concerned, I'm a number, a statistic.". That doesn't mean she didn't have a name, it meant she had a shitty orphanage whose employees were too overworked or too lazy to devote any real personal attention to the kids.And otherwise, you go all dystopian. Even a bad orphanage is going to put up a pretense, and pretenses mean actual names.
>>29471715I said no Anon
>>29471712My favorite girls.
You tell her you should probably get back the Pokecenter. She agrees. Houndour is still hurt, after all.Before you get there though, you spot a little ice cream shop. It takes literally every last bit of money you had, but it's worth it to get her some comfort food.It's very dark now, and the street lights guide you the rest of the way back to the Pokemon center. Vance is nowhere to be found here. You two are barely in time to get the last beds. They're pretty small and cramped, but you're no stranger to that, and it's still probably better than outside."Do you think Vance is alright?" Robin asks. You had expected to see him here.>He's probably fine. He's huge. Lets get some sleep.>We better go look for him>Something else.
>>29471782>We better go look for himHe's our meal ticket....And loathe as we are to admit it, he's an alright guy as well.

>>29471782I bet he's having trouble catching a pokemon. He's probably worked both himself and his machop to the ground.
>>29471782>He's probably fine. He's huge. Lets get some sleep. Anyone that big is basically indestructible, right? I'm sure he'll turn up eventually.
>>29471782>He's probably fine. He's huge. Lets get some sleep.He had shit to do here, right? And he's like the least likely guy to get robbed or whatever too.
>>29471834Definitely Hilda.I've got a massive ponytail fetish, but I'd choose her regardless of her hairstyle.Rosas a great second though
>>29471782>>He's probably fine. He's huge. Lets get some sleep.He's tough, he's probably just training somewhere.
>>29471782>He's probably fine. He's huge. Lets get some sleep.It is quite out-of-character to be concerned about him in the absence of anything to worry about. We'll find him in the morning.
>>29471782>You saw the kinda stunts he pulled at lunch?>It's take like, a Gyarados, to slow him downIf that doesn't dissuade her, offer to look for him yourself while she gets some zees.
>>29471850Vote however you feel. Last thing I want to do is railroad. To be honest there has been more than one totally unexpected vote or turn, and I think it's more fun that way.
>Vance kidnapped by NOTteam rocket!
>>29471890And we agree. Keep posting.You know if we told Vance that sketchy Doctor ripped us off he'd be willing to help right?
>>29471908This. I'm not too worried about the guy, but if she is worried, then we should allay her fears so she can sleep soundly.
>>29471782>He's probably fine. He's huge. Lets get some sleep.What's the worst that could happen?
>>29471926Yeah, but staying in character is important. I can see MC being a bit guilty about not actually being there for his training, but not enough to leave Robin as she is now, and she's in no condition to be outside.
>>29471953I'll post occasionally, I'm trying something in photoshop at the moment, and while it'll probably end up shitty I still want to try.What was kats hair color?
>>29471987I don't think we ever decided on a look for Kat did we?
>>29471745Sorry it's taking so long to respond about to go to sleep. My intent wasn't for a dystopian feel but I can see how that could look, the entire thing was just an idea that popped up and wouldn't let me sleep until I let it out.
>>29471987whatever an individual player wants to imagine in their head. Pretty much every detail about the character is ambiguous.
>>29471987We don't know.In fact, the only thing we DO know is that she's 16.
>>29472024Yeah. I was going to change reds hair in >>29471569 to see how it came out, I like to imagine Robin as a nerdy fem-red, and then maybe switch the others color too. But if it's ambiguous then it doesn't really matterThat's how I'm going to imagine them
I like the idea of us not having a name. What if some error in processing got it lost, and we lied about it afterwards so much that we forgot it?
>>29471953that's right. My vote when we meet up is still >>29471587come to think of it, Robin's dad might be an asshole and get the proffesor guy to withold the fossil pokemon.I'm also worried that the professor will get more fascinated than intimidated if Vance shows off his poke-skills.>>29471987short for her age, but older. Wears practical clothing, with a few adjustments. No electronics, cus poor.I still suggest having pieces of brick glued to her shoes to simulate steel-toes and have a wicked kick.
>>29472078well, I'm sure our trainer card says SOMETHING, and that is our name that means the most, anyways.
>>29471782"He's made of muscle and dumb. I'm sure he's okay."
>>29472169aww, he isn't that dumb. He knew how to brew up an antidote out of zubat venom.
>>29472219which is a very SPECIFIC and narrow range of skills, but so is learning how to mimic pokemon.
"He'll be fine," you assure her, "He's massive, and you saw his moves today."She smiles as you try to imitate his moves and muscles. She seems satisfied with this answer. It's been a very long day, and a long week in general for her. She drifts off to sleep easily. Once again, you reflect on how cute she is when she's sleeping.You don't remember exactly when you drifted off yourself. You're awakened by the shuffling of people. As your eyes slowly open, you see Robin standing above you. She hands you a smoothie. "The cafeteria is still pretty packed, so I brought you this from across the street."It's as sweet as the gesture she made.As a habit, you check all your stuff to make sure nothing is missing. Of course nothing is, but you like to be careful.>Head to the museum>Ask Robin to buy you a sleeping bag in town>Find somewhere to train with your Pokemon>Do some more research. You only really know the basics>Something else
>>29472169>made of muscle and dumb.You fight sixteen 'mons, what do you getAnother day older and deeper in debtSaint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't goI owe my soul to the Pokemon store
>>29472265Museum then skip town lets not stay here too much longer
>>29472265>Head to the museum
>>29472265Museum trip is go.
>>29472265>Do some more research. You only really know the basicsMight as well!
>>29472265Vance FIRST, then museum. It's too late to go alone, we need reinforcements.
>>29472265Museum is a given, but have Robin back us up.but first, we should ask the Nurse Joy on guard about Vance, tell her to tell him to stay put if he arrives.
>>29472265>>Head to the museumLet's make sure we hide the fossil first though, we shouldn't walk back in with it. Time to get our fucking money back
>>29472265>Head to the museumFirst things first.
>>29472265>>Do some more research. You only really know the basicsFind out what the plug headed thing was while you're at it.
>>29472265time for Cranidos
Oi if we are gonna head to the museum hide the fossil we stole somewhere, do not bring it with us
>>29472265>Find VanceThen>Head to the museum
>>29472265No word on Vance? Confirmed for dead. Anyways Museum a go go!
>>29472333Seconding this.Demand your money back after you get your pokeman though,
>>29472364>>29472265THIS this this this. He expects us and could be ready with some shady friends to put the boots to us. Metaphorically or otherwise.I'd like to snoop around and dig up some evidence to get back at him for being a shitlord in general.
>>29472333Yeah, we should get vance first.He's a pretty intimidating dude
>>29472265Let's do some research. The more book learnin' we do, the less we have to worry about whether making smart choices in combat would be in character for us.
>>29472364That is a clever idea. Would Robin trust us enough to put the Jaw fossil in her bag and go do something nowhere near the Museum?
>>29472333>>29472364so we're in agreement? Anyway, if Vance or Robin have a problem with the stealing, we can write it off as collateral. If it was a scam, and it was, at least we got a new fossil
>>29472364I'm thinking potentially "back in the lab". The fossil isn't too useful to us, and I think keeping it is just in general dangerous.
>>29472479I mean, who just gives a load of money and a fossil without any kind of insurance?
>>29472511Museums need our help with kids playing cawawoowy and their f2p facebook games instead of doing some learnin'
>>29472511A punk kid who's never dealt with important transactions before?
>>29472473No hiding stolen items on Robin.>>29472479No mentioning the stealing or we'll have to explain that we stole it before we even knew we got ripped off. If we don't get our money we can say we stole it on our way out that time. >100 hours in photoshop
>>29472364pokemon can hold items right?
>>29472485Given our character, I'm not opposed to stealing things in general, or stealing from that guy in particular, but stealing from someplace that we KNEW we were going to go back to the next day was the very stupidest thing we could have done. What we should have done today was case the place to see if we could steal anything worthwhile TOMORROW. Swiping right away was a rookie mistake and we should feel bad for doing it.
>>29472562ha, it'd blend right in on Devon.Gobble said he was trying to do away with held items though
I heard somebody in here was trying to masturbate to Red.
>>29472562Sure, give it to Devon. >turns out theres a secret evolution and he evolves.
You've got some business down at the museum you want to settle first.Before you head off, you ask the nurse if she's seen Vance. He's easy to describe, but the nurse is positive she hasn't seen anyone like that come in over the night. You didn't let Robin hear you ask, since she'd only worry anyway.On the way over to the museum, you ask Robin about the Pokemon you fought the other day. An Elekid, right? You both read the pamphlets for a short bit as she explains about it, and a little more about the basics. You don't have time to absorb much though.You arrive outside the museum. The fossil still feels heavy in your pocket, even though you know it isn't.>Tell Robin to stay outside while you sort it out. It might get dicey>Tell Robin to stay here, use the opportunity to hide the fossil somewhere>Storm in with Robin>Something else.
>>29472561again, collateral. We'll come off as paranoid and delinquent, but they already expected that, right?
>>29472595Jokes on you I already masturbated to Hilda
>>29472562Just stash it in a garbage disposal unit somewhere while Robin's busy buying food or something.
>>29472614Oh, sorry I was late.
>>29472609>Storm in with Robin
>>29472609Lets have robin wait outside and hide the fossil in a trash can because pokemon game
>>29472609>tell Robin to stay here while we use the bathroom to stash the Fossil, then go in with her
>>29472609>Tell Robin to stay here, use the opportunity to hide the fossil somewhere
>>29472609>Storm in with RobinAnd in the confusion, slip the fossil back where it was found.Being the town's gym leader's daughter (the events of yesterday are probably not well-known yet), the researcher will probably think it's not a good idea to mess with her, and we can use this opportunity to dump hot property.
>>29472609>Storm in with RobinAight, let's do this shit
>>29472626that sounds dangerous as hell.>>29472609still voting for>>29472479
>>29472682Liking this idea
>>29472668Goddamn it I had just finished masturbating man
>>29472710pls stop being lewd
>>29472609>>Something else.ask Robin to hold your bag while you get your fossil poke
>>29472609>Storm in with RobinJust try to hide the fossil somewhere outside, if it's gone when we're done oh well.
>>29472658>>29472682Supporting this idea.
>>29472719ARE TRYING TO MAKE ME HAVE A PERMANENT BONER?!?!?
>>29472719Whelp here I go again
>>29472761>>29472772These are pokemon, surely some pokemon will make your boners go away, unless you're into that kind of thing?
>>29472682not bad, I suppose. It could work. At least, I don't mind if this happens.
>>29472803Ok anon now you're just being a dick, those aren't pokemon just sluts dressed up as some. I might be find as long it ain't Rosa or Hilda though
>>29472682Let's give it a shot.Reverse-theft go!
>>29472848I'm not evenhttp://danbooru.donmai.us/posts?tags=pokemon+personification
You and Robin make your way passed the front desk person, explaining you have an appointment. Apparently they’re expecting you, because you’re waved right through. Robin waves a greeting, she must know this employee.As you and Robin approach the room you left the scientist in yesterday, you’re able to make out some angry yelling. You open the door to discover the place is a mess. It looks like a Rhyhorn went on a rampage.A young assistant, who was trying to to calm down a clearly furious Dr. Hornbeam, notices the two of you.You explain your presence, “I’m here to collect a revived Pokemon.”The assistant nods. He’s doing his best to pretend that there isn’t a furious scientist behind him. “I’m afraid the machines have had a malfunction.” There’s a crash and a series of expletives. You peer past the assistant and see that a baseball bat must’ve ‘malfunctioned’ the hell out of the thing.“Of course, we’ll return your fossil.” He retrieves the Skull Fossil from the broken machine. Luckily it looks intact. He hands it back over to you, looking apologetic. That’s weird, he didn’t mention a refund for the fee. He looks way too self-conscience to be trying to rip you off. At least you think so.“What about the fee?” You ask.“Where is it!” Dr. Hornbeam yells in the back. He’s frantically looking around, and then finally notices you. You can see a sudden realization come to him. He rushes over. This does not look good. You get ready to make a break for it.“Fee?” The assistant looks genuinely puzzled. “I’m sorry, I don’t know what fee you’re talking about.”Dr. Hornbeam suddenly stops dead in his tracks as he gets close enough to hear what you’re talking about. His anger is replaced with fear. The assistant is looking at you, and hasn’t noticed him yet.>Let it go, you both have dirt on each other now>Sneak the fossil back, rat onl Dr. Hornbeam>Something else
>>29472848This is a dragon.
>>29472719The /u/ is too strong here, I wasn't prepared for thisI can't-It won't-Send help
>>29472908And so is this.
>>29472900First tell the not douche scientist that He charged you a few, once he distracted sneak back the Fossil
>>29472900>Sneak the fossil back, rat onl Dr. HornbeamIt's stupid to keep the fossil anyways. It'd be hard to revive the fossil or sell it without making a paper trail anyways.
>>29472900>>Let it go, you both have dirt on each other nowHonor among thieves and all. No point in making it worse.
>>29472900>Let it go, you both have dirt on each other nowWe can sell one of the fossils for twice as much as the gold nugget, it's not worth pressing.
>>29472900>Sneak the fossil back, rat onl Dr. HornbeamMaybe we can get something out of this as compensation. Something that has less strings attached than a stolen jaw fossil.
>>29472900>Sneak the fossil back. Rat on Dr. Hornbeam.He was a dick. Therefore sunset to our full wrath.
>>29472900>Sneak the fossil back, rat onl Dr. Hornbeam.What a dick
>>29472900MONEY. BACK. NOW.then leave quickly before they realize you still have their fossil.
>>29472900>Let it go, you both have dirt on each other now
>>29472955And yeah: the ratting-out should be used as cover to sneak the fossil back.>>29472965I'm a bit concerned; we'd either need to find a fence, or risk a major paper trail selling the fossil.
>>29472900>let it goNow we got two fossils for the price of one.
>>29472900>Sneak the fossil back, rat onl Dr. Hornbeam
>>29472900>Sneak the fossil back, rat on Dr. HornbeamAs long as we can put it back without anyone noticing.
Won't they be suspicious if the fossil returns out of nowhere when this one girl the professor is calling a thief comes back
>>29472900Okay, so that fossil seems to be hotter than we were planning on. I don't think we want to tarry here OR try to sneak the fossil back unless a major diversion breaks out. If we just try to put it back on the shelf, he's going to sniff us out and we catch all the heat. We have our fossil back intact, we have the other fossil that we can dispose of later, somehow, and we're not yet fingered for the deed, so let's scoot while we can.
>>29472900Just grin."Oh, you didn't know? Well... perhaps Dr. Hornbeam and I can discuss it in private."
>>29473084Anon.... Anon please
>>29473013You mean we have "two fossils, one of which might be reported stolen and become quite hot, all for a steep price that should not be associated with fossils in the first place".Plus, we have no idea if it's even a worthwhile fossil; it might be damaged beyond usefulness. Returning it and demanding money back is safer.>>29473060I'd say "Daughter of the local gym leader in a fury" should be a good enough distraction.
>>29473084*sigh* here we go again (drops pants)
>Sneak the fossil back, rat onl Dr. Hornbeam
>>29473101I guess this works too. there are some good arguements for sneakily returning the fossil, and blackmail seems more of our MC's style. Just get the money back.
>>29473112>>29473125Have some self-control
>>29473189It's too late for meSo post more Hilda damnit
>>29473221Here's the grand finisher~
>>29473246I dun doofed.
>>29473246Ok Anon I laughedI can find my own Hilda anyway
>>29473117Well, we can't just settle for a clean drop. He's been frantically searching for the thing for some time now, so we also have to find a place to stash it where it could have credibly been lost, otherwise the blame will find its way back to us. It might anyways, but the case against us would be a lot shakier if we can ditch the fossil somewhere that doesn't trace back to us.
“He charged me a lot of money to revive this fossil. He said it was for the museum!” You put all the attention on him. Robin and the assistant turn to face the doctor.Dr. Hornbeam is floored. He looks almost betrayed. You guess by the look in his eyes, he thought you two might have been able to work out an understanding. “Is this true, doctor?” The assistant asks. You can tell by the tone that he’s surprised, but not that surprised. Hornbeam must have a reputation. He starts stammering in response.This is your chance. You drop the fossil out of your pocket, and give it a swift, light kick before it hits the ground. It hits a sweater on the ground next to a knocked over coat rack.“You can’t trust her! She- She stole the fossil. The jaw fossil I’ve been looking for.”The assistant looks serious. “Dr. Hornbeam. There is no jaw fossil registered in the inventory.”Hornbeam is stunned as he realizes his mistake. “I-I-was going to register it! It just came in! It-it was a donation.” The assistant and Robin aren’t buying it.“Is that it?” You say with your hands behind your back. You point your head to where the fossil landed, trying to act as innocent as possible.All three look at the fossil on top of the sweater. There’s no explanation Hornbeam can offer. The assistant picks it up and examines it. Robin moves in close to look at it as well.“No...No...No NO NO NO NONO! Years of dedication!” Hornbeam has completely lost it now. He throws out a pokeball that releases a Magnezone. “Thunderbolt!” He points to the wall. Magnezone blasts hole, just large enough for him and it to start run through. You reflect on how completely unnecessary that was. But hey, you’re not a scientist.>Chase after him. You want your money>Let him go. It’s not your problem>Something else.
>>29473279Well someone who isn't us clearly vandalized the place last night, so I'd say that that's a good explanation for how it could get misplaced.
>>29473477TOWARDS THE MONEY!
>>29473477Throw out Devon Tell him to tackle the doctor
>>29473477>>Chase after him. You want your moneyNigga you gunna pay what you owe
>>29473477>Chase after him. You want your moneyNobody steals from us!
>>29473477>Chase after him. You want your money
>>29473477>Let him go. It’s not your problemYou girl crazy. It was a fucking Magnezone, what do you think you could do to that?
>>29473477>MagnezoneI think he's probably a bit out of our league.
>>29473477>Let him go. It’s not your problemWe'd be retarded to take on a dude with a Magnezone.
>>29473477"...I wasn't even going to press charges if he just gave me the money back. How the hell is this a proportionate response?"
>>29473547You grab the master by the pokeballs with your houndour and tell him to return it to it's pokeball.
>>29473556>>29473547This. We'll get rekted. We came out pretty decently, let's not press out luck
>Chase after him. You want your money
>>29473477So... If you don't own that fossil, can I have it?He did steal most of my money just now.
>>29473511>>29473516>>29473524>>29473533>>29473539Stop being stupid. We didn't like our chances against a gym leader, and you want us to go against a deranged scientist with a Magneton?
>>29473477>>Let him go. It’s not your problemlet the police handle the FULLY EVOLVED MAGNEZONEthe police have fire types and you'll get your money back later
>>29473477>let him goBig shot doctor probably has a bank account. The museum can comp us and either dock the Doctor for it, or pursue a lawsuit.
>>29473596Fuck you I want my money. Even if we don't win as long as we stall him long enough for the police to come
>>29473566It's not like this is a pokemon battle.We can just charge into melee range and beat him up, the Magnezone can't attack without hitting the doctor.
>>29473477>Chase after him. You want your moneyThe thing is level 30. Release everyone, carry Destiny.
>>29473596No way this guy is gonna harbour resentment towards us. I bet it's the last we'll ever see of him too!
>>29473621We don't have any pokemon who aren't out of the single digits.That's a fucking Magnezone you fucking retard.
>>29473477>>Let him go. It’s not your problemMaybe they will just give us the fossil as compensation.
>>29473477There were quite a few who wanted to bargain, but oh well.>>29473618I like this.
>>29473477>Chase after him. You want your money>not your problemI KNOW HOW THAT ENDS, GOBBLE.
>>29473477Negotiate with the assistant for the return of your fee... or the Jaw Fossil as recompense.
>>29473477>Let him go. It’s not your problemLet the police do the hard work for us.>>29473640Screw him. He tried to screw us.
>>29473477I say we act like we want to chase him, but let Robin stop us if she tries. Losing the money stings like hell, but I don't think we want to risk a confrontation with that guy that leads into an argument about who stole what from whom, because that may not go as well as we might hope. Also, Magnezone may kick our asses, even if Devon's fire attacks give him a type advantage.
>>29473648Robin has her houndoom
>>29473634It's a flying saucer made of solid metal.It can just hover over us and then... stop hovering.
>>29473611Magnezone. Not Magneton.
>>29473477Maybe our Magnemite has Magnet Hold as it's ability? That'll stop him!
You guys are going to get raped by Magnezone, don't do it!
>>29473611We don't have to battle his pokemon, just him.Rules of fair play don't exactly apply here.
>>29473677It's a houndour, same as ours.
>>29473477"So... this is where we call the police, right?"
>>29473742...You don't grasp how that goes both ways?Really?
>>29473742There's so many things wrong with that...Clearly isn't self-defense (police and courts will not like that), no reason his Magnezone can't fuck us or our Pokemon up in return, and this guy sounds like a bit of a scary customer.
So are we in a part of poke-America that isn't New York City?Because the general rampant corruption makes me think we're in Poke-Detroit.
>>29473477Just see if we can get our money returned by the museum.
>>29473477He IS our problem.But he's also everyone's problem.Just... so many broken laws.
>>29473813This is one guy.>>29473830They'll probably just give us the Jaw Fossil.
>>29473813You have a staggering one data point to suggest "rampant corruption". Everything else can be explained by pure incompetence on the part of the orphanage.
>>29473867No they wouldn't. The dude was wearing the lab apart looking for it, why would he just give it away.
>>29473877Well there's the Gym Leader who kind of sucks, someone robbed a starter shipment meant to be given to new trainers, and whatever was going on in the mines.
>>29473896cus it's not registered, we don't have our money yet, we didn't get our revived pokemon, and this has been a major inconvenience.We don't even have to break the law, everything just falls into place.
>>29473896The dude looking for it just left through a wall.The assistant didn't even know about it.
>>29473896The assistant wasn't looking for it, idiot ripoff doctor was.
>>29473926Well i assumed the shipment and the mines were done by the same group. Out Team Rocket or whatever they will be called
>>29473926Sucky Gym leaders aren't corruption. Robbery of starter shipments is only corruption if there was an inside man. Organized crime occurs even in places with reasonably honest police departments.Again, one data point here.
>>29473961our Team Rocket*
>>29473477>Let him go. It’s not your problem
You give chase. Robin is close behind. The assistant yells out to wait, but you don't listen.He and his Pokemon duck into the surrounding forest. Robin curses the economic circumstances that led to Kindletown becoming so logging dependent, but it seems out of place given the situation. She's such a nerd."No! Stay away!" The doctor yells. His pointing is all his Magnezone needs, as it fires another thunderbolt in your direction, narrowly missing Robin. The tree struck blows bark in all directions. This is dangerous. The surrounding grass sizzles. This is really dangerous.>Try to cut of off through the forest, you'll have to run at full tilt and won't be able to do much else>Release a Pokemon (specify) chase behind>Tell Robin to turn around. You have this.>Other
>>29473997>>Release a Pokemon (specify) chase behindHave Zubat spy on him from the air and call the police before giving chase
>>29473997>Take a hint that this guy is dangerous, and stop pursuit entirely.
>>29473997Give up on this stupid chase, this is a terrible idea.
>>29473997Release Zubat and have him use Supersonic on the doctor.
>>29473997Yeah I'm not really sure what you guys were expecting.
>>29473997 yeah lets quit now...
>>29473997>Look man, I won't even press charges. Just give me back my dosh.We are SO way in over our head here

>>29473997Release Devon he's fast as shit and he'll bite that fuckers leg.
>>29473997Just let it go.
>>29473997Okay, yeah, he's actually using a Magnezone to fire at civilians. He's clearly lost it. We should bug out.
>>29474045There's always been an idiot brigade on /tg/.See Pararescue Witches and the decision to engage in close combat with a Soviet tank witch.
>>29474045>>29474053this is going bad real fast.>>29474058this seems like the best plan. But it's also TOO FREAKIN LATE. His reputation is already destroyed.

>>29473997"This is a huge overreaction, are you high?"Yeah let's not fight this guy.
>>29473997Let him get a little distance, release Vlad and have him track him.It'll help the police find him.
>>29473997Just leave him be>>29474038Changing
>>29473997Send out Vlad, tell him to follow them from out of sight until they stop somewhere, then return to the museum so we can lead the cops there.
>>29474107So you want Vlad to get killed by a Magnezone?Stop. Just... Stop.
>>29474107I'm kinda concerned about Vlad's safety here. I suspect the guy might kill Vlad outright instead of simply fainting him.
>>29473997No fighting this guy, no getting Vlad killed in a stupid plan that doesn't make any sense, let's just quit while we're ahead.
>>29473997>otherStop chasing him and get back to the museum. I have a feeling that the guy will feel so bad that he'll give us that jaw fossil
>>29474126Zubats are incredibly sneaky. THey don't make a noise while flying and they use sonar instead of sight so they can 'see' without being in LOS either.
>>29473997>OtherWe turn the fuck around got back to the Museum.Leave the loony to the Officer Jenny's.
>>29473997Just turn around, this was a mistake.Do NOT release Vlad.
>>29474163It's broad daylight.Magnezone has three eyes.And we don't have any means of tracking Vlad and I'm not sure of our ability to communicate with himStop being stupid.
>>29473997Just leave this guy beWe will kick his ass when we take over the criminal organization he joins
>>29474163I'm pretty certain echolocation doesn't do a good job without LoS, and Zubat will have a hard time sneakily tracking actively fleeing people.
Just posting to veto any Vlad plans. I'm not having him be killed because that would hurt his Friendship meter.
>>29473997"Holy shit are you crazy!?"Back the hell upThis guy has clearly snapped if he's willing to just straight up electrocute folk in broad daylight
>>29474246But I'm looking at Bulbapedia, and they don't have friendship penalties for being killed, only for having fainted! We're fine, you see?
>>29474232>Implying he's not already in the pocket of the same organization we stole the fossil fromNo wait, but then who would have trashed the machine?
>>29474301Vance? We don't know what his deal is.
>>29474301He was supposed to revive a tyrunt for their boss, and they trashed the machine when he tried to tell him the fossil was missing.
>>29474246I didn't vote for pursuit or putting Vlad out but its not like finding another Zubat will be hardjust saying
>>29474334I think you are going to have a hard time lobbying for the 'pokemon are tools' mentality, given our previous characterization, especially with Destiny.
>>29474334Did you miss the whole "MC actually attached to her Pokemon as more than electronic blobs" deal?Jeez, the money isn't that important, and both the character and probably many of the audience are attached to Vlad.
>>29474301The jaw fossil clearly belonged to whatever Team Rocket clone operates in this region. The shifty scientist dude was reviving a Tyrunt for one of their members on the quiet, and when the fossil went missing, they smashed the machine in retaliation.
>>29474376>>29474363when a family's dog dies, they often get another dog.all I was saying was zubats are not rare.
>>29474417Not without tears, though. Hell, even bomb disposal robots are cared about by their operators, and they are literally in existence to blow up so humans don't.
>>29474417Must've sucked for this guy. Grinding Larvesta is suffering.

The urge the follow is strong, but you figure this is just too much. As you see bits of bark fly into Robin's hair, you start to slow down, the slow. Robin is only a small bit behind you, and catches up quickly. You stop her with your arm"Aren't we going after him?" She asks between breathes.You're not winded, but you do feel drained after seeing her come close to eating that bolt. "It's too dangerous. Let the police handle this."The assistant is looking out from the hole in the wall when you get back. "Are you two OK?" You and Robin both assure him that you're fine. You pull a bit of bark out her hair without her noticing. Did she even realize how close that was?"I've called the police. They should be here any minute. I'm so sorry about all of this." He looks mortified at the entire ordeal. "I knew he had some issues, but I never imagined..." He trails off.The police arrive quickly. You and Robin are questioned about the events together with the assistant. It's an odd feeling, being on this side of a police report. Robin tries to emphasize that his crimes also extend to stealing research and plagiarism, but the police either don't care or follow her explanation. The police wrap things up and tape off the area. You're both free to go about your business.After you both make leave outside of earshot of the police, Robin turns to you. "That jaw fossil he was talking about," she takes a minute to work up her nerve. "Did you...?">Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything before>"Steal it? How could I? It was across the room when I found it, right?">Something else
>>29474718>>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything beforeRelationships are built on trust.
>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything before
>>29474718>"Steal it? How could I? It was across the room when I found it, right?"No One Must Ever Know
>>29474718>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything before.No reason to start lying now.
>>29474718...... AH fuck it Fess up
>>29474718>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything before
>>29472926Would you like your help to be dressed in any certain way?
>>29474718NOOO, we never found out where he evolved his Magneton into Magnezone! We're going to need that info someday.
>>29473997>Otherfucker is panickedprobably won't attack unless threatened or given a chanceback away facing him back to the museum, get the cops.
>>29474718>Of course. I had a feeling he was going to rip me off.
>>29474718>I always have insurance Robin.captcha: rsDOfd GautamaWe sage now
>>29474718I will now, as soon as I get my money back. Seriously, all this trouble, and STILL no fossil pokemon?
>>29474718>>"Steal it? How could I? It was across the room when I found it, right?"
>>29474718"Yeah... Don't even know why I did it, since I knew I'd be coming back there the next day. I think I might actually have kind of a problem."
>>29474718>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything before"hey, he stole from me first. AND that lead to him being busted! You're welcome btw"
>>29474718>>Something elseYeah, I stole it. Well, I kinda just grabbed whatever was on the table. Didn't pay much attention.
>>29474718>>"Steal it? How could I? It was across the room when I found it, right?">>29474741Trust and lies
>>29474718>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything before"Habit, and I didn't trust the guy very much. I probably would've returned the fossil anyways; it's not exactly a good fence-for-cash item that I would not have taken if I'd been thinking".
>>29474816"It was pretty much a reflex, maybe as a response to running low on money? ...That's bad, isn't it?"
>>29474850well if we are gonna confessI like this excuse
>>29474911It was a tremendously stupid decision.Just like chasing this guy was.
>>29474827this sounds good.
>>29474923>Confessing is stupidFuck that, we've already established we're a thief. She wouldn't buy that. If we lie to her she's not going to trust us when we need her to
>>29474718>Confess to her, apologize for not saying anything beforeIf we're going to pull this off, we need to play the sympathy card."Well, you know how I don't have a home, or a job, or parents, but I still manage to stay alive and fed...?"
>>29474961No, I'm saying stealing the fossil was a stupid decision.
>>29474718>"Kind of a habit I picked up... Uh, sorry, I guess. For what it's worth I did feel kind of bad about stealing from a museum and was already planning on returning it before I learned that the scientist was a jerk."
>>29474985Oh.Yeah, it was.
"Whenever I see people I don't like, or get stressed, or feel like i'm being treated unfairly, I just... they try to screw me, so I screw them back you know?"
>>29474803I like this. Is it weird that I see us as a less emotionally damaged Parker from Leverage?
>>29474850 or this >>29474964 sounds IC for Kat. I support.
>>29474996We never claimed to be the smartest trainerWe just tend to run on instinct
>>29475026No, that wasn't instinctIt was stupid and unnecessary, but what's done is done.
>make a decision>turns out to be a bad one>IT WAS EVERYONE'S FAULT BUT MINEshut up fags
>>29475088What the fuck are you talking about?This isn't a hivemind.
>>29475088>>29475114we've got about 2 general trains of thought that sometimes conflicts and sometimes doesn't. the rest are stragglers who MIGHT get a bit tacked onto the final decision.
>>29475088This is how the character is justifying it to herself.The real reason was indeed moronic voters, but we're talking about how Kat's going to justify it. Speaking of, I have an appropriate captcha, including the word consequence.
>>29475088Sound's like our character alright.
>>29475172Maybe we should just say that we have shitty instincts in general.Like if someone screws with us, our first response is to chase them.Even if they have an electric death machine.Maybe tell her to not be afraid to tell us if she thinks we're doing something stupid?
>>29475172Yeah, narratively speaking it can be justified as 'in-character'. And that's fine. It was a stupid decision out-of-character, sure, but you work with what you have.
>>29475217>Even if they have an electric death machine.And how the fuck were we supposed to know he was willing to fire on humans, huh? We backed off as soon as he did.
>>29475233It was pretty stupid in-character as well, unless we genuinely got serious problems.
>>29475217You mean have her train us?
>>29475253Shit, if Robin wasn't there, we would probably STILL be chasing after the motherfucker.
This is hard. Her look is hopeful, like she's willing to accept whatever lie you give her. "I took it", you say flatly. Usually she's the one avoiding your gaze, but not this time."I didn't trust the guy! He ripped me off after all. He was shady! He stole from me first!" You look for an excuse. She listens to everything you say, right?Robin stares back at you. "You didn't know that until after.""I... I just took it out of habit. A reflex to running low on money. I don't even know why I did it, since I knew I'd be coming back there the next day. I think I might actually have kind of a problem." You stammer out. Why are you stammering? You were always able to stay cool under pressure when you've been caught doing bad things before.Robin doesn't take any of it. "Yeah. You have a problem. You lied to me.""Well, technically I didn't really lie, I just didn't-" She doesn't stay to listen. She walks away, back to the Pokemon center.The walk is quiet and uncomfortable. You struggle to come up with something to say to her to make it all better, but the words just don't form. As you get closer, you see there's a commotion outside the building. There's a crowd obstructing your view, but as you and Robin push through the crowd, you're able to see what the fuss is about.There's Vance, making his way to the Pokecenter, with a gigantic bear looking Pokemon in a headlock. His clothes are nearly torn to shreds. Scars cover his body, and a layer of caked blood and dirt cover his skin. He takes one step at a time, dragging the exhausted creature with him. As he spots you, he yells out. "I caught one! The Pokeball didn't work, but I caught it!"That's not at all what you meant.Robin is shocked, but still moves away from you to inside the Pokemon center.>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn down>You're not in the mood, tell him to figure it out and chase after Robin>Something else.
>>29475256To be honest we probably should have serious problems.
>>29475284Hand him the pokeball tell him to catch it the right way then run after Robin, we have shit we need to do
The stealing was stupid, but perfectly in-character. The chasing after the crazy guy? Not so much.Question: do we want to play someone whose just really greedy and not above stealing to get it, or an actual kleptomaniac?
>>29475284>Go off to think about what we've done and how to apologize
>>29475284>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn downRobin can use a couple minutes to think, and we know generally where she is: the Pokemon center.
>>29475284"...what the FUCK?"Give him another god-damned Pokeball. That thing's going to be PISSED when it gets loose.
>>29475284>Offer him a new PokeballHe may be dumb but mad props to him for that.>>29475300It's almost like our character has depth.
>>29475284>>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn down.
>>29475284>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn downDude what
>>29475284toss him a pokeball and run after robin
>>29475284>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn downAfter that, I don't know. Protocol suggests we should go after Robin to make up, but I think it's best if we give her some time alone.
>>29475284Let's never REALLY piss off Vance.
>>29475284Toss him a pokeball and chase after Robin
>>29475284Damn Vance is a badass
>>29475284Blithely give Vance a pokeball and find somewhere to sit.Depression time! Kat thinks she just blew it with the only person who ever gave a shit about her.
>>29475284THIS is why we should have gotten him first. He would've been great help in catching the proffesor.
>>29475284>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn down
WAITTHE FLUTE PLAY THE FLUTE!!!
>>29475355If worst comes to worst we let her sleep the night and have her wake up to us by her bed Not in it by it
>>29475284"Dude you are fucking insane. Do you not understand how this whole Trainer thing works?">Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn down
>>29475284toss him a pokeball, yell good luck over your shoulder and chase Robin
>>29475316ThisAlso Vance confirmed for a real mans man
>You're not in the mood, tell him to figure it out and chase after RobinWe are broke and have Robin to chase.
>>29475284Suddenly, I like Vance a lot more.In a platonic way
>>29475387Yeah I think it's appropriate to just sit in a corner and feel sorry for ourselves.Maybe we should also take out our ghost pokemon, since we haven't really played with him at all?
Rolled 3>>29475284give him the pokeball then run after Robin
>>29475284...well, I guess if Vance wrestles it to the ground he can catch it with a Pokeball. Give him a new one.When we do sit down to talk to Robin, should we tell her about everything we've stolen up till now? Or at least what we can remember that we've stolen?
>>29475341changing to >>29475387
>>29475284Holy shit, Vance.
>>29475476We should just completely spill our guts, hope she forgives us.
>>29475387Yeah we don't know what to say.Goddamnit what were those guys thinking last thread?Did they just think it's been a long time since we've done any crime, like in Breaker Quest people felt there was a long time since there was any lewd?
music soothes the savage beast
>>29475284>>Offer him a new Pokeball, it looks very worn down"Holy hell, man, this is not at all what I meant! Here!"
>>29475476I don't think we're in a good place for talking.
>>29475387changing my vote to this
>>29475548By 'when' I mean tonight, tomorrow, whenever Robin can stand to look at us again.
>>29475476"Robin, I stole something very important. Your heart!"
>>29475387This sounds good.
>>29475387I'm down with thisDepression timeAlso maybe get to know Trunks as a distraction
>>29475519It's in character!It might lead to some actual character development! Or some conflict that is narratively fulfilling and isn't just swept under the rug!Let's stop dwelling on these things and just read what could be a good story.
>>29475519Like, it wasn't even smart stealing. We should have waited to swipe something until we came back and got our Pokemon from the machine, then we could have had our Cranidos, whatever we stole, probably got our money back, skipped town, and remained one step ahead of all the consequences.
Wrestling a bear into submission is an excellent way to endear a character to the audience.
>>29475519Never discount the "dumber than a bag of hammers" hypothesis.Now, without character development, I'd be up for stealing every so often (the character is a thief), but not when it would be so blatantly stupid to do so. Now, of course, Kat is probably going to have to choose between theft and Robin, if there's a choice left at all, and now I could actually believe an overnight stop to the theft.Not without temptations, but now Kat has a reason to stop.
>>29475618>Also maybe get to know Trunks as a distractionI support this. We've hardly made his acquaintance and will fit our mood.
I told you it was a dumb ideaI fucking told you so
>>29475648We were pretty much suppressing ourselves just for her sake. Drop this fact, see Robin melt.
Stealing the fossil last thread was satisfyingly in-character for Kat, and I'm happy this arc didn't turn out to be Mary Sue dykefest #15.
>>29475606>Kat Stole the Precious Thing
>>29475284I got it. Vance has retard strength, that's why he's always so happy
>>29475705>Stealing the fossil last thread was satisfyingly in-character for Kat>Being stupid and stealing something like a retard was in-characterNo it wasn't.
>>29475705Stupid theft is not in character for an experienced petty thief. She should've known better than to steal a fossil, particularly when we would be returning the next day.
>>29475742But it all worked out! Everything worked out okay! No-one who can press charges knows, the one guy who suspected anything is on the run, we look like the victim to the authorities....So why do we feel like shit?
>>29475711Dude is apparently pretty good with medicine as well.
>>29475705You're one of those people who just encourages terrible decisions with obviously bad consequences for the lulz, and thinks that not being a retard is moralfagging or powergaming.
>>29475742>>29475725>>29475705and the "It was in character" vs "I told you so" Fags come into another quest and decide to shit it up with another rousing debate (and by debate I mean pedantic shit flinging).>inb4 the rebuttals to this post shift blame to other guy or try to say why they are rightyou are both the cancer. shut up and move on. tired of seeing this shit in every quest I follow.
You toss him one of your Pokeballs. You've already lost a lot of money and you're usually very tight when it comes to giving anything away, but you just don't really care about that right now. "Try again, it's probably weakened."Vance catches the the Pokeball, but only too late does he realize the mistake of letting go. He's suddenly tackled from behind by the giant beast. A crowd forms around. Usually trainers are a lot more helpful, right? They all seem to be cheering or placing bets.You head after Robin in the Pokemon center. It takes a little effort to find her back at the beds, but it's easy to move around in the building since almost everyone is outside."Look, Robin," You begin."Can't you take a hint?" She's crying. You didn't even notice. "Go away!"You want to reach out, hug her or tease her or something. Slowly, you turn away. There's a very strong lump in your throat. You walk out of the Pokemon center, out passed the crowds watching Vance's wrestling match with the large Pokemon. Eventually you find yourself at the same place Robin went after the encounter with her dad.You're alone now. Very alone. It's just unbearable.>Take out Devon>Take out Zappy Dan>Take out Vlad>Take out Destiny>Take out Trunks>Otherhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWKUlyZy-uI
>>29475805Okay, so it was a little bit stupid, but I think we're making a whole lot of fuss over nothing.Let's all just relax. It might lead to some interesting character interaction.
>>29475787>>29475787Because we have two types of people in this thread. The ones that want to play Mary Sue, and the ones that want to play a Thief.Last thread she stole something, now the Mary Sue players admitted to taking it which fucked everything up. If she had stayed in one character she wouldn't be in trouble, either deny it all or don't do it at all.
>>29475679...So did pretty much everyone in the thread.>>29475656Yeah let's talk to a ghost.
>>29475725Teenagers are particularly known to have poor judgment. Said teenager is a troublemaker whose first reaction to frustration and authority is theft.
>>29475830>Take out Devon>Try not to cry>Cry a lot
>>29475830walk onto the next town alone in sorrow
>>29475830>Take out Trunks
>>29475830>Take out Devon
>>29475852pretty much this
>>29475830Take out Trunks.And what are you doing? We DID take the hint.Just sitting in a corner feeling sorry for ourselves had the majority.
>>29475830Take out Devon
>>29475830Mrgh... I wanted to take out trunks, it's even thematically appropriate, but really, hugging Devon is the only course of action>>Take out Devon
>>29475830>Othertake out everyone...we need love right now
>>29475830Fuck it call out Devon try not to cry, fail, start crying
>>29475830"...I'm sorry! Okay, I'm really, really sorry! It was stupid and impulsive and I don't have an excuse for why I did it! I didn't do it consciously, and I know it was wrong and it just caused a lot of trouble for one of your dad's associates and it's going to... look, I don't know what else I can do to sh-"Immediately go downstairs. Donate all your money to the Pokemon center and vow, then and there, to turn over a new leaf.
>>29475830Run away she's better off without you
>>29475840You've gotta be trolling.No one could possibly be this retarded.
>>29475886first, fuck off.second, we don't have any money.
>>29475830>>Take out DevonLet's pet our puppy, At least he'll be happy to see us.
take out Devon try to hold on your tears
>>29475886wowso much money>>29475830Devon's the best for cheering us up. I don;t want Trunks to think we're a ballless frail damsel.
>>29475830>Take out TrunksLet's chill with a ghost.
>>29475886>turn over a new leaf>someone dropped a watch under it>pocket it
>>29475830>Take out DevonQuite cuddly.
>>29475830Take out Trunks. At least he can comfort us with the fact that, as bad as our situation is, at least we didn't get lost in the woods, die, and have our soul turned into a pokemon.
>>29475902What it's true. Her back story is established as a thief, there was no reason to tell Robin we took the fossil, she wouldn't even know.It's like no one on /tg/ knows how to lie
>>29475830Fine. If that's how she wants it we will leave. Begin on to the next townWe don't need herThese aren't tears
>>29475852use the fact that he's a fire-type to burn away our tears
>>29475951We seem to have trouble not being white knights.
>>29475725>>29475742>>29475805But characters with flaws are more interesting than holier-than-thou audience avatars who make all the right decisions because we have to win.
>>29475886A, we're already out in the woods, and B, at this point Kat is still at the stage of "I'm sorry I was caught", not "sorry I stole".>>29475951I don't think she'd ever had a real friend before. That throws things off.
>>29475951eh, they all wanted the character development.
>>29475951There's a difference between lying to randoms and lying to somebody your starting to develop feelings for. Especially if you're a developing teenage girl
>>29475960Tears? What tears? We're fine. Everything's fine. My eyes aren't red, it's just the sun.>>29475967The best part is we're going to keep stealing.
>>29475954Can you feel that?It's starting to rain
>>29475951It's not true you mouth-breathing troglodyte.Stealing that fossil was utterly retarded in that we had to go back the next day and it wasn't even something we can fence.How can you be so fucking dumb so as not to grasp that?
>>29475951On the other hand, she hasn't ever really had a friend before, so there is that.
>>29475970What part of theft is "holier-than-thou", precisely?I wanted to keep stealing. I didn't want to make the colossally bone-headed mistake of that particular theft. Hell, it might have led to deeper consequences down the line, as Robin would have asked how much we'd been hiding from her.
>Not https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STRgG38T6sc&hd=1C'mon Gobble, they are classics for a reason
>>29475970...I hate you so fucking much. You are what kills quests.Having flaws=/=being a shortsighted retard.
Let's all just calm down.I'm sure Gobble doesn't want this.It was a bad decision but it's too late to do anything about it now, so let's just make the best out of this situation and go through some character development
>>29475999I still don't understand why you would tell the truth when she wouldn't find out anyway. The only reason you tell the truth is when someone is going to out you and you want to keep some dignity>>29476009Okay, if we hadn't stole it and stole something else later on and Robin confronted us about it, would your first reaction be to tell the truth? Because that's entirely out of character.
>>29476057There's also no such thing as the 'right choice.'
>>29476071Except we just made an even worse decision in this very thread, by chasing after the scientist with the Magnezone.And apparently people are just going to keep making retarded decisions because they think to do otherwise is to powergame.
>>29476071Yeah, come on guys.Getting all mad over it isn't helping anybody, 'specially not you. Don't take things so personally.
>>29475954I could be down for some solo time
Don'tcha just hate it when a small group of anons can't let go of a past decision and constantly butt heads over it? they just gotta keep going on and on with a petty argument, like it accomplishes something.
>>29476107>Except we just made an even worse decision in this very thread, by chasing after the scientist with the Magnezone.Yeah, but nobodies arguing about that at all.
>>29476135Sounds like a plan. Might have to run it down with Vance.
>>29476143That's because it doesn't affect their Yuri fantasy
>>29476139Someone is WRONG on the internet and you expect me to just let it GO?
Has anyone commissioned any art for this yet ?
>>29476167Stop trying to start shit
>>29476169some days, I actually feel this way.
>>29476139Eh, I'm a little more lenient on this: if it's still in the thread where the event happened, I'm not too upset.>>29476143No consequences, because people got a clue that "this fucker's dangerous and we should stop". Thus, no real argument.
I think we've all learned a very valuable lesson from all of this.ALWAYS LIE.And never let anyone know the real you.
>>29476174my fave quest (atm anyway) didn't get fan art until like 30+ plus threads in
>>29476174We don't really have a description of the MC beyond her clothing and 'is a teenager', unfortunately
>>29476071What pisses me the most about that decision is that it was a one vote win with strong resistance with no check for samefaggotry.
>>29476186But he's right.>>29476174Nobody even knows what the characters look like. Not even OP!
>>29476206only if she doesn't come back
>>29476097>entirely out of characterCharacters change, especially when they have a reason to. And we've established that Robin is a valid reason.
>>29476224Stop.It had no negative effects, we didn't take damage, we didn't lose money, absolutely nothing happened. That's why people aren't bitching about it, there's no need.
>>29476229Known her for like 3 days, that's the fastest change I've ever seen.
>>29476229it's happening too fast though. Most of their interaction is teasing gone too far, segueing into making Robin vulnerable enough to open up about her problems to a stranger.
>>29476254We also became a pokemon trainer.
>>29476249well, if we had stayed behind and asked about the other fossil, they might have given it to us or offered a compensation.
>>29476268We can go back and ask the guy for compensation still.
>>29476263We had a Dive Into the Heart sequence.That changes a girl.
>>29476268yeah, I wanted to do that. Unfortunately, this is where the 5 min rule bites us in the ass, as it favors fast responses rather than writeins and thinking.
>>29476268Pretty sure there was no chance of that happening. It's evidence in two crimes (three if Officer Jenny savvies up to us nicking it).
>>29476263Possibly a little bit too much so, but we're getting into "this is done and over with" territory. If necessary, you can chalk it up to the fact that her life as a whole was changing (becoming a Trainer), and the possibility that she'd just never had somebody she thought she could trust before, and had no experience with dealing with somebody like Robin.
>>29476392New thread, didn't realize we were on page 9
>>29476363If you had a girlfriend, would you tell her you had kissed another person fully knowing they would never find out the truth?
What bothers me the most is not the characterization, but the fact that we still don't have a fucking gym badge. That's One Piece levels of slow.
>>29476363So, we clam up and never let anyone else inside ever? Sounds like a plan.
>>29476420Yes, without a second thought.
>>29476420Relationships are built on trust.
>>29476462We would have one by about now if the gym leader wasn't a bag of dicks.>>29476420As the person you were asking: yes. Good relationships are built on honesty, and I'd rather not let the issue fester. I think she'd forgive me, and it'd stabilize the relationship in the long run.
