OP is actually not late for once edition. Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Pokemon%20QuestTwitter: https://twitter.com/GobbleQMPokemon, items, and summary: http://pastebin.com/tSNKt0WmFAQ and general concepts: http://pastebin.com/Ht1Q5E1p General rules: There is a 10 minute voting period after each post, and 5 minute voting period for combat votes. 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. Write-ins for all votes or always welcome and encouraged. Put your own spin on it, suggest dialogue, add an addendum, or anything else. Just because some options specify to write in, doesn't mean that they aren't welcome for anything else. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in. Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as it comes up.
"Let's take the ferry over to Aquapolis. Once we're done there, we can head over to Braundalin.""Sounds good to me," Vance says.Robin puts away the map. "Great! If we leave soon, we can camp just by the ferry docks and leave in the morning." You shift uncomfortably. "It's a different dock than from last time. This is a cruise for tourists and travellers." Robin assures you.Vance hitches his bag. "I still have to get some food for traveling."Robin nods. "I want to do some quick shopping for supplies and make sure I'm not forgetting anything.""Alright," you say. "Let's all get ready and meet back here in a bit." Vance and Robin gather their things.You consider your options. You have a lot of money, all of your Pokemon are healthy, and you have some to kill before everyone is ready to leave. You catch yourself in the mirror and see that your clothes are a little ratty. You've only had them for a short while, but you've been rough on them. If they weren't as rugged as they are, you'd probably be indecent by now.You do a mental checklist of your inventory. All-in-all it's not bad. http://pastebin.com/tSNKt0Wm You can't be too prepared though.>Shop at the Pokemon center>Go clothes shopping>Buy something else in town (write-in)>Get some quick training in instead

>>29973488meh everybody meta games and just goes to serebii or bulbapedia anyway
>>29973488They aren't somthing that are bought/sold. They are made and given to trainers thought worthy (mange), any trainer at 10 years starting a journey (anime).Also our pokedex is funny, and if I keep saying it has a porygon trapped in it, it might come true.
why don't you want to catch more pokemon anon;-;
>>29973599We're still waiting on the two fossils, and we need to train ours first, and we don't want to give ourselves too much work.
>>29973488Nope, maybe more Pokeballs because you never have enough Pokeballs.
It's a tough call between shopping for clothes or training. After thinking hard on it though, you decide to get clothes for now. If you're really quick, you can probably still get in some quick training.No time to waste then! You bolt out the door of the Pokemon center. If you weren't so used to running through the streets you probably would have collided with someone on the way out.>Get something classy, you have a lot of money right now, you've never really worn anything upscale.>Get something practical, maybe a little tougher than what your current outfit.>Get something sexy>Get Something punk.

>>29974067Better for warmer climate. But anything is better than no cap. Personally, I'm a fan of the chinese straw bell hat.
You run into a store that looks like it will have what you need. There it is! A nice practical traveling outfit. It's got clip on buttons so you can easily add or remove layers. You'll probably be visiting different climates, so that's perfect.You try it on quickly and it fits like a glove. Or body glove. It fits well is your point, you're a Pokemon trainer, not a poet. You pay for it and run out the door.On you're way back you spot something in a window of a different store. Oh. Oh yes. You can't wear that for traveling, but you could definitely see yourself in it. You bite your lip. Maybe by candlelight or... Nevermind! You can think about when to wear it later. You run in and pick up that sexy little number. There's a great little bikini here too. You grab that, pay the clerk, and explode out the door. You make a mental note to thanks Junior, the total came to about the same amount you won off of him.You make it back outside the Pokemon center. Looking at the time, you weren't gone long at all. You can get some quick training in with one of your Pokemon before Vance or Robin meet you back here.You just have to decide who needs a quick training session now.>Devon (Houndour)>Zappy Dan (Magnemite)>Vlad (Zubat)>Destiny (Horsea)>Trunks (Phantump)>Raistlin (Abra)

>>29974189>Trunks (Phantump)Hasn't got much attention
>>29974189>Trunks (Phantump)Get some of them grass moves going.
>>29974189Trunks needs to be useful for the gym. Devon can get some attention and playtime on the road since he is good at. keeping up
>>29973936That's amazing! How did you do that?I had a full map done before, but it I lost it before saving (power out, the curse is very real). I'm going to rebuild it using that stuff you've added there as best as I can.I cannot express how thankful I am. This is incredibly helpful.
>>29974318Trunks and Zappy Dan need to be in top shape for the gym
>>29974189>You make a mental note to thanks Junior, the total came to about the same amount you won off of him.Yes, bring on the /ss/
>>29974353Why should we waste of our time on Junior? We already have the choicest bitchest.
"Trunks! Come on out!" You throw his Pokeball. The little Phantump looks happy to see you."We're going to be doing a little bit of quick training. Are you ready?"Trunks floats up and down in agreement. He's eager, that's good.>Perfect Leech Seed>Focus on improving a trait or stat (Specify)>Expand his movepool (specify) http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-xy/708.shtml>Something else.

I approve of Leech Seed, but we're going to need some more firepower after that, possibly sooner rather than later.
>>29974693Agreed, it's not exactly a hard hitter
>>29974693Well, Phantump is defensivly inclined, so seed/growth/astonish/faint attack is a good set up.When we get to Aquapolis, we could teach him another grass type move
>>29974693i like wood hammer as a finisher but phantumb is too cute for that.
Damn, I arrive late and miss a clothes vote. It's always the important votes you miss. At least it turned out well.Leech seed is perfect for him, he's more of a defensive stalling thing- which fits out current battle style really well. After this we should consider will-o-wisp to really shut down physical attackers, or substitute for maximum stall.
You point to a nearby rock. "Alright Trunks! Let's work on that Leech Seed!"He leans forward and concentrates hard."Come on Trunks! You can do it!" You cheer him on.He fires off a few seeds. They harmlessly bounce off of the rock."Nice try Trunks. You're getting there. Just think about stealing that energy. It's not just about shooting seeds, it's about planting them."Trunks tries again. This time a tiny green strand expands from where one of the seeds landed."That's it! Just do more of that!" Trunks keeps doing as you instructed. Each time he gets a little better. After a few more tries, it looks like he has it down."Great job Trunks! You did it!" You pet him. He snuggles close to you. He's just so adorable! When you first saw him, he nearly gave you a heart attack. Now he's the one of the cutest things you've ever seen. He picked that up in a short amount of time. He must be really good at Grass moves.Just as you're petting Trunks, you see Vance and Robin call out to you. You wave back. Vance's bag looks like it's about to burst. He must have gone all out."Nice outfit!" Robin says. "It suits you." You smirk. Wait until she sees what else you got.Vance hitches up his bag. "So, are we all ready to head out? The ferries leave in the morning, so we'll want to get some good distance before sundown.">Let's hit the road!

"I'm good. Let's roll!" With that, the three of you head out of town. There's a small road on the way to the docks from here. As soon as you're a little way out of town, the swamp surrounds the road once more. It looks like the swamp itself is waiting for a time when the roads are entirely unwatched to grow over them. The shade from the overhanging trees is nice though. You see the occasional person, but it's a little sparse.As you're lost in thought, you realize Vance was telling another joke. You turn in just in time to catch the end of it. "Then I said, 'Will-O-Wisp, more like Will-O-Wasp!" Robin laughs and Vance nudges you in the ribs again. He's really got to work on his control, you take a minute to get the wind back in your sails. At least you didn't have to pretend to laugh.You're pretty far from the city.

You cover as much distance as possible. In the cool shade of the trees, you somehow feel lighter, and more full of energy. Vance and Robin follow your pace until the sun starts hiding behind the trees.Robin pulls out her map. "If we're where I think we are, we'll have plenty of time to get to the docks in time tomorrow." That's good news.The ground is getting a lot dryer here, so finding a camping spot isn't as hard as you thought it would be. you get a fire going while Robin and Vance set up their tents.Vance digs into his massive bag and gets out his spices and cooking utensils. "Hope you two are hungry." He starts preparing dinner.Your stomach doesn't just growl, it practically roars! You're starving. You can hear Robin's tiny stomach doing the same.>Help Vance cook (write-in)>Chat with Robin (write-in)>Take this time to study.

"So, gourmet chef, martial artist, nursing people back to health, is there anything our dear Vance can't do?" You see him scratch behind his head and shrug. "You're too modest Vance. I mean, back at your shack, that thing you did with Vlad. It was pretty impressive. Were you studying to be a doctor or something?"Vance stirs up some food. "Well, I considered it. I never felt like it was for me though."You leave it at that for now, and take out Raistlin, your Abra. He just sits there staring at you (you think) as the firelight bounces off of him."Robin, you must have traveled a lot, to have seen so many gyms."Robin looks up from her Pokedex. "Hmm? Oh yeah. My dad called it 'scoping out the competition.' He's always been a bit obsessed about trying to be the toughest gym leader. Why do you ask?"You keep staring at your Pokemon. "What do think of Raistlin? I can never tell if he's listening to me, or if he's even awake."Robin goes back to her Pokedex, but you can see her sifting through different entries. Her other finger rests on her mouth. "Hmm, well I'm not really an expert on psychic types, but I know a little. An Abra sleep a lot. Well, they 'sleep' a lot. It uses it's psychic powers to effectively act like it's awake. Oddly enough, moves like Sleep Powder make them sleep for real. It's one of those oddities.""Well, that's good, I've just been worried I was doing something wrong with Raistlin."Robin's eyes come up from her Pokedex to meet yours. "Don't worry. Just keep interacting with him and you'll be fine." She smiles.(continued)
>>29976143You focus back on Riastlin. "So... have any hobbies?"Raistlin doesn't react. You pick him up and face the fire. The two of you watch Vance juggling spices and stirring up dinner. You're glad he's such a willing cook, but isn't he using way too much salt?As you're thinking that, you see the salt shaker fly from Vance's hands. "Woops," Vance says as he picks it up. "I guess I should slow down, I don't want to drop dinner too."You look at Raistlin. "Did you do that?"Raistlin doesn't react. Still, you feel closer with him."Dinners' ready!" Vance announces. you, Robin, and Vance chow down and watch the stars slowly appear. You quickly wash the dishes and everyone begins getting ready for bed.Robin looks over your bag. "So I guess you didn't buy a tent in Chloroville." Her voice isn't sarcastic, but there's a slight accusation there. You shrug and she playfully rolls her eyes. "You're so forgetful."Vance yawns and excuses himself into his tent.>Sleep outside, it's still warm and the stars are nice>Jump into Robin's tent, but tell her to wait until you get changed>Sleep in Robin's tent, but just sleep, you have an early morning tomorrow>Something else

>>29976433I think it's a bit premature, and the shock would work better on the spa, a public place.Then again, we've done pretty good by rushing blindly into things, and women love being swept off their feet.

>>29976433>For giving Robin a brain hemorrage after changingNot necessarily. We don't have to give her the full show right away.Take it slow, tease her, make her ask for more.
>>29976481wait till we get to a public place to wear the night gown we bought?
>>29976604I think she's too modest to be asking for more.I expect her reaction is gonna be something between blood loss via noesbleed, or fainting.
>>29976617'Till we get to a more private/more comfortable place.Tents aren't very large, not much room to show off our full spectacle.
>>29976617Huh, you are right. Apparently we bought both something nasty AND a bikini.
>>29976218>apologize for not buying a tent.
>>29976684Nasty?We didn't buy a tong and pasties anon, we bought something sexy.
"You don't mind, do you?" You ask Robin.She shrugs. "It's fine. Really, it's practical. I mean, it's big enough, and it's better that we travel light." She keeps listing off reasons. Yeesh, she doesn't have to sell you on the idea.As Robin starts unzipping the entrance to her tent, you crawl in before her. "Hold on. I want to get changed first!"Robin seems surprised at your sudden modesty. "Oh, OK. Tell me when you're ready."It's a relief to be stop having to fight your wicked grin as you close the entrance behind you. You quickly slip on the sexy little number you picked up before leaving. You spent a lot longer checking yourself out in your small pocket mirror to make sure everything fits and that your hair is just perfect. Finally, you're satisfied. You cover yourself in a blanket, but stay sitting upright. "I'm ready!~"Robin crawls into the tent. She averts her gaze from yours. You must be showing a hint of intent because she's already turning a little red. "You're acting different. Are you alright?"You move in close and drop the blanket. "I don't know, why-"Robin turns redder than you've ever seen her and flails wildly backwards. As she stumbles back she pulls the tent with her. Both of you are lost in a maze of tent, blanket, and flailing arms.Somewhere you can hear Vance rushing out. "Are you alright! What happened!" His voice is muffled under the sound of the tent and blankets, and Robin's flailing and unintelligible gibbering. The tent goes slack. Robin must have made it out."Robin! What's wrong! Where's Kat?" You hear Vance asking.Robin stutters. You're still not sure if you should feel rejected or incredibly flattered.>Peak your head out, make something up>Crawl out, you've got nothing to be ashamed of>Let Robin answer.

>>29976923>Let Robin answer. See what she saysdawwwww
>>29976923>Let Robin answer. See what she says
>>29976923>>Let Robin answer. See what she saysdis is gon be gud...
>>29976923>I'm okay Vance.
>>29976923>Let Robin answer, see what she saysI can't quit this grin.
>>29976973Actually, fuck the normal outfit.
>>29976923>Peak your head out, make something up
>>29976923>Let Robin answer. See what she saysIf she's too flustered to answer him I guess we'll just have to:>Crawl out, you've got nothing to be ashamed of
>>29976923>Let Robin answer. See what she saysRobin, why are you so cute?
>>29977020This is for Robins eyes only
>>29977010Nah, I don't think Robin would be comfortable getting back in the tent, I think we should change back.
>>29976923>>Let Robin answer. See what she saysToo adorable.
>>29977064She must learn to accept our love.
>>29976923>Let Robin answer. See what she says2qt4me
I think we're gonna give the poor girl a heart attack.
>>29976895potato potato>>29976923>Peak your head out, make something upNo way we'll force her to deal with the fallout.'It's OK, I just felt a little... lightheaded, sluggish, lost my balance. It's been a hectic trip, my body is starting to catch up. Guess I really need to rest, huh?'
What if Robin is straight ?
>>29977119Still, we're being a bit too bold or pushy, I would say.
>>29976923>Let Robin answer. See what she saysMight as well.Still think we should have waited for another time.
>>29977143She told us she likes it though. It was only like like threads ago.
>>29977143Yup.Won't change the inevitable though
>>29977137She seem to be pretty bi-curious
>>29977143drunk Robin admitted to enjoying us teasing her and doing things like this, though
>>29977137She'd have to be the gayest straight person around.Anyway, changing back should be a good idea, if only because the tent needs to be set back up, and regardless of what anons think about Kat's modesty, that sounds very inconvenient to do in this getup for a variety of reasons.
You'd think she'd be a bit more accepting. She did invite us into bed practically nude not to long ago.
>>29977191The issue is "drunk Robin"
>>29977200I guess you're right.
>>29977191drunk people say lots of things.
>>29977220Drunk usually means honest, but yeah: Moderation.
>>29977143Going for a girl is not something normal Robin would do. What we need to do is keep the momentum going, press on, breach her gates and sweep her capital in one swift motion. I'd have held back the big guns for a while, though. It feels like it's a minor victory overshadowed by awkwardness instead of a decisive victory.
>>29977240Drunk usually means you say anything.
>>29977263Reich master pls no.
>>29977263Yeah. We need to divide her reason and conquer her mind.
Guys: remember. Robin practically invited us to eat her out when she named us "Kat".
>>29977323Was she drunk then too?
>>29977263I'm glad you're here giving lesbian advice, Hitler.
>>29977323I feel that was more one-upping us and getting street cred than actual interest.
>>29977339NO, it was the morning after.
>>29977323she specifically said 'kats eat robins'. the way i see it, she was making a jab at us slowly corrupting her sensibilities and making her more like us than the sweet little daddys girl she'd always been
>>29977263As long as you won't insist on opening second front, I'm with you.
>>29977347>I feel that was more one-upping us and getting street cred than actual interest.Are you actually that delusional?
>>29977351Easily could have still been drunk.
>>29977339nopesober as a bird and cheeky as hellshe also told us we were the most important person in her life. Wile that could be platonic, could also be forbidden love
>>29977344Even the Fuhrer approves of FORBIDDEN LOVE.As long as it's girl on girl.Otherwise, off to ze kamp.
Thank you for the advice mein furher
>>29977370Ze Vance vill be easy to conquer.
>>29977344We just need to be careful not to invade Russia with her.
>>29977370I agree, repeating the mistake you made with rugged, handsome Russia is a good way to lose the war on both fronts.
>>29977446I thought we could be something more than friends
>>29977446But he can't help it, everyone knows those military leaders with aspirations of world conquest can't resist the allure of the Russian bear! The proles may not understand Hitler, but I do!
>>29977460sorry, but no
>>29977460harems a shit, and the uboats have already claimed Robin sorry but you have already lost the war.
quick! play it off as a joke!activate awkward laughter.exe
>>29977533It has gone too far for that.
You say nothing."I-I-I-I-" She takes a breath. "I-I-I-I saw." "What?" Vance pushes her. "What did you see?"You peak your face out. She looks at you. "I-I...was just surprised. I thought I saw a...a Bug Pokemon"Vance looks back at your face peaking out. He's visibly relieved to see you. He turns back to Robin. "Did it sting you? Your face is all red and I'm worried about your breathing.""NO! No! No. I'm fine! Totally fine!" She practically yells it.Vance looks skeptical. "You're sure?" He asks, looking in her eyes, checking her pupils. "Kat, what about you?""Fantastic." you say flatly. You blow your hair out of your face.Vance looks between both of you. "...OK. Well, want some help setting up the tent?"You crawl out, making sure to stay covered in the blanket. "I'll take care of it. Go back to bed."Vance shrugs. "Alright then. Sleep tight I guess." You think you hear him mutter something about girls as he crawls back into his tent.Robin helps you as you begin reassembling the tent. She doesn't say anything. She's still very, very red.>Play it off, that was a great joke, right?>Tease her, she's probably calmed down by now>Say nothing. Just put it back together>Something else (write in)
>>29977568>Apologize if you were too forward
>>29977568>>Something else (write in)Did you really see a bug pokemon? was it cool?
>>29977533We can't. Robin knows. We can only pray that she is interested in forbidden love with us
>>29977568>Apologize quietly>>Say nothing else. Just put it back together
>>29977568>Tease her, she's probably calmed down by nowA bug, huh?
>play it off as a joke"sorry, meant to tease a little. didn't expect that much of a reaction."
>>29977568"I guess I'll take this as a compliment."
>>29977568>Say nothing. Just put it back togetherlet her gather herself.
>tease herBent over more than nessicary while setting up the tent
>>29977568>Play it off, that was a great joke, right?'At least they got a reaction out of you, can't say the same about Vance'If she inquires further, tell her what happened during the karaoke fight while Vance was confused.
>>29977568was it at least a cute bug pokemon?
>>29977568>"I hope your not going to be like that All Night, we might not get Any sleep that way...."but seriously, apologise if it was too much, it just looked so beautiful and we thought it would make better nightwear...
>>29977568>>Apologize if you were too forwardPoor Robin.
>>29977568>apologise for not being subtle>sulk that she doesn't appreciate it
>>29977568>Apologize quietly>Tease her a little, but your heart clearly isn't in it.>mentally beat yourself up for going to fast, being an idiot, and probably upsetting her again
>>29977568 >Apologize if you were too forward
>>29977568>>Say nothing. Just put it back together
>>29977568Really a bug pokemon?I'm insulted by that comparrison...
>>29977656sounds good as far as how we want to sound and our feelings about it.
why are all these anons of the opinion that she hates it or something? i dont get you.
>29977568>Say nothing. Just put it back togetherBall is in your court honey
>>29977631Use the blanket to pretend to be a caterpie
>>29977688no it doesnt. it was not an idiotic thing and there is no indication that she is more upset than any other time we tease her.
>>29977693Jumping from 0 to 60, basically.
>>29977693OOC? no reason whatsoever, I'm pretty sure she loved it. IC, we determined that Kat has some pretty serious self esteem issues, doesn't really know how to relationship, and is very scared about screwing things up with Robin.
>>29977693Just cause she didn't hate it doesn't men apologizing for shocking her and making her cause a scene isn't a good idea.
>>29977711this ot should at least lighten the mood
>>29977631>>29977638this and this
>>29977693It's not that she hated it, but it was still very blunt.Every time before we were either clothed, or drunk, not this time.
>>29977638ThisDon't apologise. Just ask if this is too fast.
>>29977693Well, Kat has low self esteem. It makes sense that she's beating herself for potentially scaring away Robin.
>>29977737i dont have anything against apologizing for causing her to knock the tent over or anything. my problme was with comments like>we are idiot>she is angry
>>29977711I like this
>>29977693It's not that she 'hates it', but more that it came as one hell of a shock that she was neither expecting, or prepared for... though her reaction does suggest that she had put some form of thought into the subject prior to the event... either way, we have just opened the 'Schroedinger's box' of the 'forbidden love' option, now we must wait to see weather the Cat was dead or alive....
>>29977791Perfectly reasonable assumptions for Kat to make.
>>29977711That has just the right amount of pathetic and sad that it might just work.
>>29977711This should lighten things up, supporting
>>29977819no its not. she has been teasing her for a while now. they even talked about these things before.
>>29977856This shocked her more than anything so far. Have we done anything to make her run out of the tent before?
>>29977711thisalso specifically voting against assuming she hated it. Too forward, we may have been, but we are pretty sure at this point that Robin doesn't mind us coming on to her
I'm smelling samefags at this point in time. I mean the caterpie idea is cute but having a vote for it every minute? Yeah.
>tg can't into coming onto girls can't say I'm surprised
>>29977903After the first couple of minutes shit slows down anon. It's not particularly unusual.
>>29977901she didnt run out. she fall and took the tent down with her.
>>29977903I like the idea, it's kinda cute, but it should be after any sort of apology and awkward make up, to break the tension
>>29977907To be fair, there's no reason why Kat should into coming on to anyone either. Of course, she should probably fail in different ways.
>>29977903Nah, while there's obviously a bit of samefagging every thread it's typically much, much more obvious and for a much, much dumber idea
>>29977943Shit. Well she never did that before either.
>>29977971she never stuttered and flailed? i am sure she did anon.
>>29977971Yeah, she did.
>>29978001Didnt bust the tent doing it.
>>29977971She has, just never took a tent out with it.
>>29978040so since she accidentally break the tent while giving pretty much the usual reaction, she is now upset and hates us? you sink with every post anon.
do you guys think the champion is a lesbian?
>>29978043Well thats the point, the reaction is strong enough to kill the poor tent. Before she didn't freak out enough to knock out the tent. I mean think about how much flailing you have to do to knock over a tent from the inside.
>>29978082>she is now upset and hates usNo, but we were obviously more forward than she was comfortable with.Also, you're the one sinking, mister strawman.
>>29978082At the very least it gave her a break so she doesn't have to parley/stutter her way out of the situation.
>>29978129Depends whether it's male or female.A gay champion would be cute, it could hit on Vance or something.
>>29978134you just have to trip and fall backwards, which she did.
>>29978129He's gay, and he'll fall for Vance. He'll follow us around until Vance loves him back
>>29978138We have ALWAYS been more forward than she has been comfortable with. That is normal
>>29978186This is a diffrent occasion, this is the BIG step forward, it's all an approriate reaction, considering the characters.
>>29978186She also like it that way. But we are pretty insecure so each time she overreacts we backpedal a bit.
>>29978138i will humor you and follow these quotes back. lets see.>>29977693>>29977791>>29977819>>29977856>>29977901well you see?>>29978139i have nothing against that.
>>29978186You know there are times when you can be *too* forward, even if you are usually pretty forward.
>>29978173>>29978141everyone knows Vance's one true love is karate
>>29978227The champion is a martial artist pokemon master
>>29978227He'll have to let the champ down gently.
>>29978214We stepped into her shower naked, we got drunk and slept naked together. I don't know where you come from, but where is come from skimpy clothing comes waaaay before nude spooning.
>>29978238But he isnt Karate, he just knows Karate.
>>29978227The champ is Bruce Lee.
>>29978238>implying it won't be an overly aggressive lesbian who is crazy for Katkarma for the teasing of the Robin
>>29978268He is the physical embodiment of Karate.
>>29978218We have not once backpedaled
>>29978214no, you are just exaggerating it. now, the talk in the shower, that was a big step.
>>29978266Well, her reaction wasn't this big before either.It's okay to be apologetic, which is what I'm arguing.
>>29978266Well, I suppose in your backwards homeland handholding comes before nude spooning as well.
>>29978266People do lots of shit when they are drunk. I once got stuck in a fence while I was drunk, does that mean I like getting stuck in fences while I am sober? Nope.
>>29978285>We try to tell her to fuck off but she just stalks us indefinitely, and we can't do anything since she's the champion>Her teasing always embarrasses both us and Robin via proxy>We have to become to champion to get rid of our annoying stalker
You attach two rods together. Robin is doing the same. You feel like an idiot. You struggle to use both of your hands and keep your sleeping bag up.You both turn to each other in unison. "I'm sorry." She blushes and turns away. You step in front of her vision. "I'm sorry," you repeat. "That was too much.""It's not the worst you've done." she says. There's a hint of levity in her tone. "I just didn't expect it. I'm sorry I freaked it."You both keep assembling the tent. "I guess that means it worked." She doesn't say anything. As you both pull the structure up, your hands meet. She looks you in the eyes. You struggle to do the same.You can't handle it! "So, a bug Pokemon huh?" You quickly wrap our sleeping bag up and crawl into the tent. She follows. "Was it a cute one at least?" You crawl like a Caterpie on the tent floor.Robin laughs. "Stop it!" She gets into her sleeping bag. You crawl over her, trying to imitate Caterpie noises. She gently pushes at you. "No!" She laughs some more.Eventually you both settle down. Slowly, quietly, you both fall asleep. Two Caterpies in a pod.(continued)
>>29978307Nude spooning is how we say hello where I'm from.
>>29978296This isn't a big reaction.We surprised her, she tripped, had to make up an excuse for vance while embarrassed. Nothing big. /tg/ is just over reacting and over analyzing everything as usual.
>>29978323Bruno was a pretty cool guy, better than the rest of the faggot four
>>29978322>two caterpiesB-BUT THAT'S FORBIDDEN LOVE!
You wake up smelling breakfast. As you rise, you're quickly aware that you're alone in the tent. You make sure to put your traveling clothes on before exiting the tent."Smells great!" You announce. Just as you thought, pancakes. Robin hands you a plate."I got a great deal on honey in town." Vance says. He's proud of himself. You dig in and make a mental note to ask Vance where he got that deal later. You're too busy stuffing your face to as right now.Robin looks at her Pokedex. "We still have a some time before we have to catch the ferry.""Good!" Vance says. "I got something else in town too. A treat for the Pokemon." He digs into his massive backpack and pulls out a bag."Pokemon food! Good stuff too!" He starts pouring out different portions. "Don't be shy, it's for everyone's Pokemon." He urges you and Robin on.You both let out all of your Pokemon, and they dig in with uniform gusto. Somewhere in the back of your mind you try to figure out why Trunks, a Ghost Pokemon eats anything.If you have some time, you might as well get some training done.>Devon (Houndour)>Zappy Dan (Magnemite)>Vlad (Zubat)>Destiny (Horsea)>Trunks (Phantump)>Raistlin (Abra)
>>29978314Title vs Virginity
>>29978296that is her usual reaction. she flailed. thats all. since she was in a tight space she fell and took the tent down.
>>29978322Oh look, people were panicking over nothing.Chillax, guys.
>>29978342The Bible said Adam and Eve, not Caterpie and Weedle
>>29978356>>Raistlin (Abra)lets get that new move downhave we not been feeding them this whole time?
>>29978356Vance and his Ursaring
>>29978356>Destiny (Horsea)One day...
>>29978356>>Trunks (Phantump)We're coming up on the water gym.
>>29978356>DevonLet's work on power for dark pulse and ember.>>29978333How you doin'?
>>29978356Zappy Dan?I don't know, truthfully.
>>29978356Devon. We've neglected him for a while. Also, leave the mons out for a while today
>>29978367Dude teens freak out about things, its okay to be apologetic when you are not wrong sometimes.
>>29978356>All of the abovebreak them into teams of 2 each to compliment the areas they both need improving on the most. see if we can get them to think outside their movesets
>>29978402How about we actually find out what he was bred for? Cause gobble said it isn't dark pulse
>>29978356>Trunksgive the cute tree ghost more love.
>>29978356Train Trunks, but have Raistlin out as well...by the way Gobble, how big is Raistlin compared to us?
>>29978432I've asked to do that in every townBut no, you people never want to
>>29978424you are irritating. i dont even have any problem with being apologetic. follow back the quotes for the discussion. i am done with saying the same things.
>>29978356Break them into teams of twoDevon and Vlad, Dan and Trunks, Destiny and Raistlin
>>29978356>>Trunks (Phantump)We are coming up on the water gym. Need a more offensive grass move.
>>29978356>Train Raistlin with Trunks
>>29978441Well, now's a good time.
>>29978441So have i. And then people go and try to rely on him without even knowing his moves.
>>29978356>Devon>RaistlinAren't Dark types immune to Psychic attacks? Let's see if Raistlin can do anything about that, by throwing rocks at Devon while Devon trains to gofast and dodgeparry.
>>29978467Or we could let dan solo it. Man why is he so beast?
>>29978356train Devon with RaistlinRaistlin needs to use Teleport to avoid moves rather than escape combat, and we need to learn what Devon knows
>>29978518Two mons per gym, we don't want to monopolize experience
>>29978530No, he needs to learn a fucking attack skill.
>>29978356>Train RaistlinWe need a Machop to name Caramon.Maybe a Nidoran to name Kitiara.
>>29978508>>29978530these are both good
>>29978518Yea, that's why I didn't want to train him. He's already good to go. This way our win will be much more likely
>>29978518Because Dan doesn't understand how to give a fuck.
>>29978562>not realizing with the freedom this quest gives as opposed to the games, teleport is fucking overpowered.
>>29978562Besides confusion anyway. has anyone else picked up on how handy it would be in a fight to not have to call out our moves?
>>29978570golett named soth
>>29978570Kitara would be more of a dragon type.
>>29978603We still haven't actually mastered that.Sure we've gotten it to use it, but we can't really rely on it.
>>29978588we will need to teach him to teleport other things though, not just himself...
>>29978570honedge called sturm
>>29978356>Raistlin (Abra)I really want to get him to the point where we can actually use him in a battle.
>>29978603Shadow ball is an egg move for Abra, and this one was bred for the casino right? maybe he knows it?It would be useful for it to know so he can fight dark types
>>29978682Dark moves are supereffective on him, so it's a bad idea regardless.
>>29978657We need to find a bumbling old trainer to teach it Flamethrower.
>>29978682Shouldn't he have a birth certificate that attests for it's pedigree? It might also contain the moves he should know.
You're feeling as adventurous today as you were last night. You can't help but grin at Robin as you think that. Smiles, but then blushes and averts her eyes when she sees your wicked smile."Raistlin, Devon, Trunks! Come on out!" You barely manage to release all three without dropping anything. Raistlin doesn't move much, so you won't have to worry about him wandering off or anything like that. You figure you can manage this as long as it doesn't get too crazy.You look to Devon. You figure you'll give him some attention first.>Train up a trait or stat (specify)>Try to expand his move pool (Specify)>See if you can figure out whatever move he was bred for>Something else

>>29978935they are all shit exept nasty plot

>>29978960You can stop now.
>>29978935Thunder Fang Or Nasty Plot
>>29979062Oh, well I'm still not limiting it. It may be that it just has a bunch of TMs. or maybe an OC move?
You put your Abra down. "Raistlin, I want you to sit here and pay attention." He doesn't react."Alright, lets' see if we can learn a little bit more about your breeding." You pet Devon. "Robin, what do you think?"She looks at her Pokedex. "I'm not sure. There are a few useful ones here. Just because a Pokemon is bred for a certain move doesn't mean it can't learn other moves on this list either. It just makes it easier."Well that makes it tricky. You decide to list them off and see if Devon knows what to do. You name on, and watch. Devon just cocks his head. You go down the list. "Nasty Plot, Feint, Rage." Still nothing."Thunder Fang would be a great counter to the Aquapolis gym" Robon says. Devon seems to perk up a bit."Devon!" You say, "Thunder Fang! Let's go!" He springs into action, and makes a biting motion, but there's no electricity or anything visibly special looking about it.(continued)
>>29979318"Devon," You hear Robin say. "Do you know Counter?" He perks up again.You look at him. Might as well try it out. "Devon! Use Counter!" Devon jumps on all fours, then does nothing. You turn to Robin. "That can't be it. He didn't do anything."Robin picks takes out her Geodude. "Get Devon to do it again.""Devon! Counter!" You're not sure where this is going, but you follow her lead."Geodude! Tackle! Gently!" You're glad it'll be gentle, but you're also more confused.Geodude gives Devon a half-hearted shove. Devon immediately hits Geodude back twice as hard, which isn't very hard at all."That's Counter." Robin says.You can't help feel disappointment. "That wasn't very strong."Robin laughs. "It can be. The user attacks back at twice the strength, but only if it's a physical attack."Well, that could be useful. You still feel like Thunder Fang would be better with the upcoming gym. You don't say it out loud though, you don't want to hurt Devon's feelings. You brush his fur. Robin apparently reads your face. "He can learn the other moves on this list, but some might be harder than others."You'll keep that in mind. You give Devon another quick brushing and a congratulations then put your attention on Trunks, who's been patiently waiting.>Train up a trait or stat (Specify)>Expand his move pool (Specify)>Something else

>>29979363 >expand movepoolLet's train him that ghost type dig. Can't remember the name of it though.
>>29979482Oh, right.Alright then, how about Energy ball.It's a grass skill
>>29979363Get Trunks Mega/Giga Drain, if he can learn it
>>29979482>Phantumps defenseTry having devon shoving him a bit, and phantump has to hold his ground.
>>29979536>>29979496I doubt we're going to be able to teach it the very last skill it learns, plus we already have a life leech move.
>>29979363>Expand his move pool (Specify)Will-o-wisp>>29979068Screw you, man, voting against the tide may be futile, but it makes me feel like I tried!
Remember people Trunks is a physical attacker, it might be best to try and teach him Shadow Claw or a status move like Toxic
Remember people Trunks is a physical attacker, it might be best to try and teach him Shadow Claw or a status move like Toxic or Wil-O-Wisp
>>29979625I'd say toxic. then use tree hammer as his one attack move
>>29979625>>29979658wait... it said I typed the captcha wrong, why did it post it anyway?
>>29979677I imagine trunks tearing a tree out by the roots and using it as a battering ram now, thank you very much.
Guess it's a bit scattered. Going on a quick 5 minute, quote-only vote. Sorry about that. I'll throw in some suggestions for next time.>Horn Leech>Energy Ball>Will-O-Wisp>Ingrain>Phantom Force>Train Speed>Train Defense
>>29979735>Energy Ballstrong grass move.
>>29979735>Phantom ForceTrunks will be the annoyer.
Oh, quick question: how do trainers make money? Like besides beating each other up, because that alone doesn't work economically. Is it doing freelance jobs like helping deal with troublesome wild pokemon, or is it primarily selling caught pokemon for industrial/domestic/governmental use
>>29979788No one has ever really touched on it. There's trainer bets, item selling, I suppose you could assume odd jobs, but otherwise there's wild foreging for food and camping out to avoid costs.
>>29979735Horn LeechWe need a physical grass move for the water gym
>>29979788I was wondering that earlier too.
>>29979816That's just sloppy world-building.
>>29979816>>29979788Sponsorships, entertainment, advertising, etc,
>>29979735>Horn LeechWill-O-Wisp is pretty cool but we need a good grass move for the battle.
>>29979869I was refering to actual cannon, I'm not perfectly sure myself.
>>29979788They probably get money from their parents, depending on age. Additionally, Pokemon trainers are subsidised by the government to some extent, because places like Pokemon centres and the like give free food.
>>29979788there are giant corporations and pokemon trainers are certain to get a piece from that pie.
Why would you learn a fire move when we're going to a water gym?You people are fucking retarded
>>29979869Think of them as a cross between professional athletes and professional gamblers. Also not everyone trains pokemon for a living.
>>29979904If he was gonna do that then he would have done the number voting.
>>29979887That would only work for the very successful ones the vast majority would still be screwed.
>>29979930>>29979930it's been a ghost move for a while now, also status affects
>>29979955We're on page 8.
>>29979930yeah, i was thinking the same too but i dont mind much.

>>29979955Exactly, for most people it costs more than it makes. That's why you hardly ever see people with complex rare pokemon teams.
>>29979955Most pokemon trainers have other jobs. Police men, nurses, scientists and so on and so on.
>>29979930two reasons, One; going underwater does not remove the 'burn' status effect, and two, just because we are heading towards the water gym, does not mean that is the only type we should focus on training against... it would be better to have some moves trained incase of either random battles, future battles or the gym leader does not use only water type poke...
>>29979788There's plenty of amateur trainers who get their primary living doing an actual job.
>>29979923How?>>29979940Considering how society seems to be built around them they seem to fufill no useful purpose
>>29980002It's still adjectively worse than a grass. We're gonna already be using leech seed for a damage dealing status effect.
>>29980036>they seem to fufill no useful purposeJust like in the real world.
>>29980036any business that is built around pokemon, pokemon trainers naturally will be getting some of their income.
>>29979984http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Will-O-Wisp_%28move%29>Type>fire>>29980002Even if they it doesn't go away, it's still fire which won't do any damage, regardless of whether or not it stays, sure, it might be useful in the future with random battles, but so would any other move at all. What kind of retard legitimately thinks its a good idea to get a fire type move against a water gym instead of a super effective, life leeching grass move?
>>29980002will-o-wisp is a crappy move anyways. but i am fine with learning it.
>>29980092>he doesn't know about burn status effects
>>29980071Burn damages even if they are water type. Nothing is immune (maybe fairy?) to it unlike poison status.May have changed with in the newer gen.
>>29980106yeah, sure, i dont know about burn.
>>29980112It still does minimal damage compared to ANY grass move AT ALL.When you're traveling to a water gym you don't prepare for a grass gym, you prepare for a fucking water gym.
>>29980036Because the game is marketed towards primarily little kids so making a world that makes any rational sense. Lets face it, the creepy porn version has better history, economics and society. Either patch it or ignore it and whistle. Up to the QM
true, being a 'trainer' is more about exploring the world and yourself than 'being the very best'... that goal is often the dreams of a child, but as the grow, they find other paths which interest them more, so they move into those. for most people, Pokemon are friends, pets and sometime work colegues, such as machops and machokes, tinburs and gurrders in construction sites, rydons and exaburrs in mining...In general, the 'trainer' stage is kind of like taking a gap year. some people return to go onto another path in life, some continue the adventure while some choose to stay and help others in their adventures, be it though guidance, a helping hand or simple someone to test your mettle against...
>>29980112But it still doesn't compare to a super effective leeching move.
>>29980112Only fire types can't be burned. that's why Burn is the best status effect after Toxic.
>>29979930>>29979984>>29979994>>29980071It being fire doesn't matter at all, even against water types. It doesn't do fire damage. It burns. Burn is equally effective against everything but fire.Burn halves the afflicted Pokemon's physical damage dealt. It's a VERY effective way to cripple physical attackers of all types. So far our fighting style has had a lot of status move abuse and stalling, and leech seed + will-o-wisp is the perfect combination, and Phantump and its evolution are the perfect Pokemon for it.
>>29980145Will-o-wisp isn't type specific. Burn is helpful for constant damage and decreased attack.
>>29980176We don't need to stack DoTs when we can two-shot them with an incredibly powerful, super effective, life leech.
>>29979788Now that I think about it, Trainers seem like transient Hobos that make money through legalized cock fighting
>>29980176Since when have water type pokemon been physical attackers? Your scenario doesn't give us a strong move to actually deal a lot of damage with. And trunks doesn't have the defense to whittle them down.
>>29980154If you mean Leech Seed, it's not affected by type.If you mean Leech Horn, I voted for that shit bruda
>>29980240Buziels or whatever they are called. I hate those fuckers.
>>29980176Having life a super-effective life leech is a much more sound strategy, considering it not only does more damage, but covers trunks low defense by providing a high survivability.
>>29980260I thought you were some other guyWe aren't saying that will-o-wisp isn't good, there's just a better alternative right now.
We can teach him another move before we fight the gym leader anyway. Calm down guys.
Gen 5 is best gen
>>29980276We're pulling from all 6 gens, citing 1 poke doesn't mean shit.
>>29980314>not Gen 4>Garchomp master race for life
>>29980307Exactly.Will-o-whisp is cool, but there's a very clear and heavy bonus that leech horn provides which should make the choice obvious.
>>29980314Must. Resist. Urge. To. Start. Edition. War.
>>29980340Everything after Gen 3 is shit. All those terrible designs.
>>29980384>So it's a rock pokemon>And get this>It looks like a nose>10/10 design, let's add it
>>29980314All gens are best gen, friend.
>Best PokesGen 2>Best MusicGen V>Best MechanicsGen IVThere. Now can we PLEASE move on?
>>29980198>>29980240Horn Leech is his best attacking move, and is definitely worth a slot. With both it and Magnemite, we should crush the water gym. I'm not upset with this result, I'm just responding to people who don't know how Burn works after the physical/special split. Planting the seeds so people vote for it next time, and we destroy the fighting/dark gym.Gen 5 is best in every way, designs included, by the way.
>>29980325I was only going off the top of my head but after having a look here are some more.Poliwhirl KrabbyShellderGoldeenTotodileMudkipWailmerCorphishAll have higher attack than special attack.
>>29980325krabby, goldeen, totodile, corphish, wooper, mudkip, carnavha, barboach, tirtouga, kabuto, binacle.The water type has always been balanced between physical and special. Horn leech is the better move, but don't try and say will o wisp is worthless.
>>29980505>>29980518Two of the most common water types, Azumarill and Gyarados.
