OPENING>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F468us4qCUEPreviously: A young rocket questioned the young hybrid, "Ni'Rena of City Shadow." While not much was gained, the creature left the young rocket with an odd message."You're the monster."After a close encounter with a friend seeking to correct this, she found herself on the run from Saffron Gym to report to boss the incident.With a wild dog in tow, the three all encounter Boss speaking to the Saffron Leader. There they learned of something called the Indigo files before returning to their dorms with much to think of.Nothing had prepared them for the prospect presented... Sapient monsters that had once been humans. What could it mean?The Young Rocket finally confronted the Dog about his behavior during the mission. The results were.. better than expected.What lies next in Cerulean's adventure?Stay tuned for Attack On Pokemon Hunter!Known characters>http://pastebin.com/k2xnqqvBMonster Index>http://pastebin.com/wxwgrCqbCharacter Sheet>http://pastebin.com/7CJx3gq1Twitter:>https://twitter.com/AoPHquestLore>http://pastebin.com/vy0a6Z9r

>>30617347>Horizon of Dark CloudsThis seems like it'll be a fun thread!
>>30617481I have no snacks and drinks.I couldn't be less prepared
>>30617347Captain reporting in.
>>30617657It's ok, I almost slid off the road twice>>30617718Because you don't have to?
>>30617347>gotta leave for class>AoPH startstimezones, I hate yooooouuuu
new to this, whats the premise?
>>30617834kids who've had pokemon bits surgically implanted to fight pokemon.Currently the problem I anticipate dealing with will be our friend whose implants make her a bit nuts.
>>30617834You might want to read the first 28 threads in the archives before participating in the live threads.
>>30617834You might want to catch up on what the story is about and who the characters are before you participate.
>>30617834Attack on Titans setting, except replace titans with pokemon. Main way to fight is to graft pokemon bits on and use their moves.Read archives.
>>30617834If you just enter without knowing anything about our goals or the characters, you're just gonna end up annoying some people.So. Tread softly.
A week passes in relative silence. Since your nightly encounter with Devon he's been a lot more reserved when it came to you. You still get the same Ice Queen from him as you do with everyone else now and then, but he hasn't really glared you down so much as before.He was an ass to Bruise a few days later, bringing up some egg puns that you shut down right quick. Bruise didn't really seem to get it though, so it was fine.Your evolution completed itself. With a look over your arms and body you find that your claws have finally become retractable and your gun-holes have sealed themselves shut when not in use. Around them there's also amber tips that come out when they open. They're sharp and bear a chill not unlike your claws.Your arms have actually narrowed out as your guns' internal chemistry have become more refined and compact to suit your speed-based style. They feel a bit weird though, as though something's fundamentally changed and a test fire upon recovery fired an odd beam instead of water...>Psybeam(1) Unlocked!: Fires a psionic beam that directly attacks the mind. Weak at this stage, focused fire will cause a severe migrane.With the week's end you're called to the bureau to meet Lilac for her release and official start of your role as her caretaker.You're in an empty waiting room aside from the main lobby biding your time as Lilac is brought up through an elevator from that basement level.When she comes in, she's in plain white clothes to preserve her modesty and an odd jacket that's binding her arms along with a metallic-looking hairband tying her hair into an almost uncomfortable-looking ponytail at three points.You'd read the report on her implants. That gracious hair-extension is actually a weapon concealing a metal maw capable of biting through steel. Aside from that, a metal skeleton and her newly acquired knack for the Evil state there's not much more to it.Which you're grateful for.
>>30617834Pacific Rim with Pokemon instead. No robots just implanted pokeparts. How I see it
>>30617929>that your claws have finally become retractableHeh.
>>30617929>Around them there's also amber tips that come out when they open. They're sharp and bear a chill not unlike your claws.So, wait, are they small spikes that come out of the palm?
>>30618020Huh. I suppose the implants are affecting each other in odd ways? Can we expect the same thing for some other characters?Also, did you reconsider the Popeye/Megaman arms?
>>30618020Awesome, that means it's easy to freeze stuff we're shooting.I love our icicle gun.
>>30618066Apparently they're actually getting thinner, which bodes well for the eventual Dewgong evolution.Muh Popeye arm anchor tattoos tho...
>>30618066I think they're slightly less popeye/megaman now.
>>30618070Oh yeah, I thought they were just for stabbing stuff, but it's also some nice fluff for Ceru's icicle gun move.
>>30618066Yep. Since they're in the body and adapting the flesh it evolves together. I figured that it'd be a nice little thing.
>>30618088I still want to get anchor tattoos on our forearm. Or somehow stain the pigment / follicles so that the fur grows in an anchor-shaped spot each forearm.
>>30618142>>30618066I'm going to imagine that, since they're thinner now, you can literally see the water being pumped up the arm, like a hose.
>>30618147we could die parts of the fur
>>30618142Does that mean that the "speed based style" will make the Seel fat more streamlined and less chunky fat fat?
>>30618147It's a fun silly idea, anon, but nah. Leave that for fanart.
>>30618183Welp. Time to spam Icy Wind from the horn all day erry day.I imagine that the full-body evolutions from Crytten and Seel will be way more fuckin painful than the Remoraids were...
>>30618220don't we already spam it before every battle?If not, why not? We get nothing but bonuses.
>>30618175Most likely, probably give Ceru a full figured look instead of ten pounds overweight
>>30618235>don't we already spam it before every battle?We used it in the fight against the hybrid last time, yes.We just haven't had that many battles yet.
>>30618183will it go to the chest or the ass?
>>30618235We've spammed evil moves more often.Icy Wind doesn't get nearly as much use as it should.
>>30618255Hey, chubby kids are cute.But serious question, what do you think Ceru even looks like right now?
I imagine those claws around our gun ports to be more like Remoraid's teeth, except they have Crytten properties thanks to POKESCIENCE.Oh, and Ygg. What about the Charm increases from last thread? We should have at least 20 Charm by now, which means we qualify for whatever bonus you had in store.
>>30618277Hopefully, to the face.
>>30618295body a living deviantart furry OC rejectmind of a saint (compared to her contemporaries at any rate
>>30618297Prof is the one who decides when we get a point or not.
Lilac's second set of eyes close when she sees you, and she smiles with some embarrassment,”Hey Ceru...”“Hello Lilac.” You try to maintain eye contact as you push a lock of your red hair from your vision. No blind-spots.The Nurses handling her do so with a great sense of tension in their face. You can just about hear their hearts thumping in their chest as now and then that mass of hair moves unnaturally sending them about jumping from their skin.Hemlock comes before you, handing you a device to hook onto your CGS, sliding it right beside your index.“This is your tether system. Once it's activated her shock collar, which has been embedded in her neck.” He taps his clipboard and throws a point over at Lilac with his pen, a weary leer from his eyes.“Tapping will deliver a warning. A one second hold will deliver a stronger jolt. Two second hold will deliver a jolt that robs her of motor faculties. Three seconds will incapacitate. The maximum tether distance is set to ten meters by default. You may set the device to twenty five meters through the new option menu in your index. However if the signal is blocked it will by default shock her into incapacitation by default.”Hemlock glances at his clipboard,”Oh yes, and if anyone is harmed by her while on your watch you'll be held responsible. She will then be transferred to a new handler if possible or...” He lowers the clipboard, smiling to you with a false kindness,”I need not say more. Have fun you kids.”The nurses timidly unlatch Lilac and release her from the jacket after Hemlock gives a signal.“I'll expect her in for weekly Psych-evals to see how this is progressing.”
>>30618277Both.And when Ceru grows up tall, she'll have a beautiful, fit MILF body.
>>30617929So, is she literally dressed like someone in an insane asylum?
>>30618330She was in an insane asylum.
>>30618320I understand. I just can't wait, though.
>>30618321Wow, she's a bit of a bitch.
Lilac rubs at her wrists as she takes wobbly steps forward, an unfamiliar weight to her every step. She stares at hemlock, her red eyes peeking open,”Thank you for your time Doctor, I enjoyed my time here. I can't wait to see you again.”You lead Lilac out, asking her questions as you do, checking her face when she answers. No doubt, the reds are closed when she's talking to you. Outside of the bureau, you look up at the dome's ceiling. Another dark day with darker clouds spitting rain across the surface. It's been like this for a whole week with no sign of letting up. Kitty said that the Ash Plains are starting to get new life from the rain, but the whole place is muddy now.Kitty was on a mission to reclaim the lost technology and capture people of City Shadow. You haven't heard much more about that whole business aside from a representative of Silph giving a public announcement about the importance of euthanizing Eevees when they show evolution symptoms and how that Power Plant scare was caused by a rogue one that had taken over its master's mind and forced them to eat other people and other things.You look over Lilac's garb with a bit of a frown. All whites, overly long sleeves, white pants, and metal hairbands... You don't know how you feel about your friend looking like this.> Borrow clothing from another ranger at the dorms.> Get Celadon approval and go shopping.> (Other)
>>30618321Time for hugs>>30618330Yes they are quite scared shitless of Lilac
>>30618355I'm assuming you mean the nurse. She was, yes.
>>30618363> Get Celadon approval and go shoppingShe needs to get out more. Move around and see the sights.
>>30618363hugs then go shopping
>>30618363>>[x] Borrow clothing from another ranger at the dorms.use this as an opportunity to introduce her to the other cadets and get clothes in one fell swoop
>>30618363Do we have any friends in her size?That might be the biggest problem.
>>30618363> Borrow clothing from another ranger at the dorms.Celadon shopping is going to be a bitch and a half. I'd rather not get hit with a rock and have Lilac gut someone on the first day released.
>>30618363>[X] Get Celadon approval and go shopping.I want to know what the deal is with the restriction, anyway.
>>30618363>otherGo to the dorm and look up stuff to order and have it delivered. She's not quite ready for mall trips yet
>>30618412Maybe we're too wet for the electric zone?Is celadon the electric zone?
>>30618412The deal is that it's the commerce centre of the dome. The merchants who have power have obviously set it up so the rangers that get modded out the ass are banned because they'll scare away customers. Seriously, nobody will come to your shop if a little girl-shaped ice tiger is browsing your wares.
>>30618363>[X] Get Celadon approval and go shopping.
>>30618446Celeadon is plant zone. It's got shopping and plants. Thant's it.Vermillion is electric.
>>30618446No, Grass. It's where Sanna is from.
>>30618363> Get Celadon approval and go shopping.Well, we most likely have a lot of money/credits built up, so let's go on a shopping spree!
>>30618489Maybe they don't want Ice types there because they're scared of the crops getting frosted or something?
>>30618458Oh man this is gonna be one of those "roll to not cry" threads, aint it...
>>30618363Oh, guys. How about we go ask Sanna if she wants to help us pick out clothes for the new Rocket cadet?
>>30618568best idea.Do this.
>>30618568Is Lilac even really a rocket cadet yet?
>>30618568Sounds good we haven't hung out with her lately
>>30618616Yes.>>30618363>>30618568I like this one, Prof, just tack my vote on to this.
>>30618363> Borrow clothing from another ranger at the dorms.do you want to bring mentally unstable ranger into a populated civilian area?
>>30618619Yes we have. We went over for the "girl's night" thing and did makeovers and read poke-Cosmo.It was horrible.
>>30618568Sounds like a good idea.
>>30618363> (Other)WHY THE FUCK AREN'T WE ORDERING FROM THE CATALOG THING?
>>30618363>>30618568Good idea. It might even help with whatever reason there may be behind our lack of entry permission.>>30618652The proper thing to do is to get Lilac into the correct mindset. And we have the shock collar.>>30618660Ceru didn't spend the night with Sanna. Are you confused?
>>30618692use CATOLOG.AMAZING DRONE DELIVER.use SANNA to choose CATALOG ITEMS.
>>30618692Some people want Lilac to get out and explore.
>>30618435>>30618692>>30618707Catalog a best.
You look up at Lilac's face. Aside from your questions, she seemed a bit too embarrassed to say anything else. Out of the bureau and back into the world... This is your friend.Without thinking anything else, you throw your arms around Lilac, burying your face against her chest. “Lilac, I'm so sorry. I shouldn't have let you go through with it.”You feel your head patted as Lilac enfolds you with her white sleeves, wary of your horn.“Ceru... It's alright. I'm free. I'm just happy that I'm free and that I'm not stuck in that accursed spire.” You feel Lilac's chest heave as she starts laughing, then crying,”I'm free Ceru, I'm free!”You hug her tighter, minding your strength as you cry for her too.For better or worse, you've set Lilac free.Later you dial your index, reaching Sanna to ask her if she wants to help Lilac shop for clothes in Celadon.“Ehh, so long as we aint goin' near the gym, I'm in for it. Your friend ready ta' look FABULOUS?!”You frown at that,”Sanna, I've never heard you use that word before, what's it mean?”Sanna chuckles over the phone,”Fa-bu-lous Ceru! I learned it from one of th' magazines. Means way too stylish for commoners.”“But aren't we-”“Enough! Get you an' the new rocket approved, I'll meet you at the station platform. Lata!”She hangs up on you, leaving you puzzled. Do you look fabulous? You peer at your own clothing, your usual skirt and blouse to suit your tail.Lilac drapes herself over your shoulders, letting her arms dangle and her chest rest on the back of your head,”Ceru, We're going to be fabulous!” You feel her chuckle before you even hear it.

>>30618943warn your friend you do not have clearance.

>>30617347Will you update Ceru's character sheet to indicate Psybeam being trained, or are we close enough to learning the other moves we bought in this thread that you'll do it later?
>>30619315Yeah? He usually updates it immediately when we ask him to.
Lilac seems tickled pink on the tram, staring outside the window the entire time while other passengers eye her warily. She looks like an Esper Camp Escapee from Silph-Media. They probably think that she's going to snap and kill them all.To your chagrin, they're not far off.Approval was easy to get, just took a quick call to be cleared for access. The city's new policy restricts access and requires verification. This way, between Electronic confirmation and long-distance human approval rogue espers can't use the trams or make unauthorized persons go to places they shouldn't.“Ohh, Ceru! The buildings are getting big again!” She's really like a little kid. You've been riding this tram for so long... You still remember the last time that mom took you on. It was when you had to say goodbye. When she replaced the last member of the Elite Four years ago.Her dangerous hair snakes against its bonds, revealing sharpened fangs hidden within to one of the passengers. You tap the “Leash” and Lilac jumps, the fang receded.“Sorry Ceru.” She apologizes with closed eyes. She really doesn't like the shock.You'll be at your stop soon...
anna's there waiting for you. Her Vine-like hair tied back into a nice bunch with a little deep violet hat supported by one, and a multilayer of blouses that give her a fringe as it passes over Cela-styled pants.(Capris) and flop-flip sandals.As soon as Lilac comes into view Sanna covers her mouth with a gasp and her cheeks puff out as she keeps staring.“Sanna, you okay?” You look at her with sincere concern as her green-hued skin slowly turns a darker shade before she explodes into laughter. It's a high pitched haughty event that carries on for about half a minute.“Aw really. You really meant it. What in Arceus is she doing with THAT! Wow. Really wow.”Lilac looks herself over as you can't help but frown a little bit. It's not THAT bad right?Lilac brings a sleeve up to her mouth as her Red eyes peer open,”Ah yes. You're certainly right. This outfit is simply dreadful. Certainly you must show us your ways, oh guru of attire. After all, you look simply stunning as you are.”You stare at Lilac for a moment before you bring yourself to smile. Okay, it's a little funny.Sanna seems to take the flattery in stride,”O'course I'm the fashion Guru, I got the tips from th' best in th' industry. Come on, let's go shopping~ Ceru, got your creds, right?”“Yeah, I haven't really spent any since last wee-” Lilac's red eyes glint a bit more open,” Ah, I also love your way of speaking! It is so charming and elaborate. Do other people of Celadon speak as such?”“Nah jus' th' ones from my parts...” Sanna seems to look a bit embarrassed this time, losing a little bit of her haughtiness. She seems to be catching on that Lilac maybe- just might be bugshitting her.“Let's go, aright? Time's a wastin' an' them stores aint gonna buy themselves!”>Where to stop first...> Salon & Groomers> Chic Cafe> Greentown Mall> Celadon Department Store> Famous Shoewear
>>30619495>[x] Famous Shoewearstart at the bottom up. and it don't get more bottom then the feet
>>30619495>Lilac's red eyes glint a bit more open,” Ah, I also love your way of speaking! It is so charming and elaborate. Do other people of Celadon speak as such?”It's Ok, Lilac. Her accent is horrible. We're all thinking it.>[x] Celadon Department StoreThis is what the place is famous for!
>>30619495Oh god, Lilac.I know nothing about fashion. Do you choose a dress to match your shoes or do you choose shoes to match your dress?>Celadon Department Store
>>30619495>[x] Celadon Department Store
>>30619495> Celadon Department StoreSeems like the best place to start. We'll match our shoes to our outfits, and finding good shoes for Ceru must difficult because of the claws.I'm very tempted by the salon though, mainly because I want to see how they try to deal with Sanna's vine hair, our icy fur, and Lilac's murderhair.
>>30619663I wonder if there's a business for fashion and care directed towards rangers?
>>30619495I have no idea.The salon worries me.
>>30619720Hair and nail care. Foot spas too, maybe.
>>30619739I think we can put off the hair care for now. I don't think normal people hair things would work for Lilac anyway
Ceru has Thick Fat, Ice Body, Hydration, and Sniper. What abilities does Lilac have? Intimidate, Hyper Cutter, and Sheer Force? Blue probably also has No Guard, but that doesn't seem like as big of a deal when Lilac can go intangible.I know it probably won't happen because pointless effort, but it would be neat to have detailed pastebins of the other characters.
>>30619495>Celadon Department StorePlease guys let's get her a wardrobe and go. Next time we do spa treatment
>>30619878Lilac is pretty limited in terms of graft choices (though with her frailty probably best to not get many more if any at all)limited to SkarmoryKlefkithe Klinklang familyKanto is ignorant of the Fairy typing IIRC
>>30619945We'll evaluate that then, if Lilac is still in shopping condition we can go to a salon, get our claws manicured though we probably shouldn't get them painted, and take care of our hair and fur.
>>30619992Normal and flying types are fine as well.
>>30619993Shouldn't we get shoes for her as well?
>>30619992Don't forget Eevee. It /could/ turn into a Ghost or Steel OC or a Sylveon.
>>30619945The important thing to do for Lilac's mental health is to create bonds and make fond memories for her. Give her an attachment to life.Which means girl time shopping. We have the shock collar AND a capture expert with us. Stop worrying so much, we can handle this.
>>30620014>giving Lilac wingsUrsaring mite b cool
>>30620033That too, Lilac needs shoes. I wonder if they have any shoes there that work for Cerulean what with the claws.>>30620047Or it could turn into something else and then Lilac dies. It's not the likeliest possibility, but Eevees in a already dual-typed Ranger are a risk.
>>30620089Eevee alone actually has an amazing ability before it evolves: Adaptability. It boosts STAB damage multiplier from 1.5x to 2.0x. So getting an Eevee graft + everstone after all your other parts have evolved would give a massive damage increase, and since Mawile doesn't have a non-mega evolution, Lilac could go ahead and get it if she wanted.
Without further delay you all head for the department store. With Sanna as your guide, finding your way to the floors that have everything that Lilac needs is easy. You had some trouble with getting past a Civvie on the first floor. After assuring him that you'd all be in an out quick and avoid bothering other customers as much as possible.He almost made Lilac wait outside until you told him about your obligation to watch over her. That caught Sanna's eye.“So, you're look'n over her, huh? Tha's pretty nice a you Ceru.” Her tone is suddenly very solemn, yet you just kind of nod.“Well, she's my friend. I had to help her. This is all my fault anyway.”Lilac musses up your hair with a long white sleeve,”I already told you Ceru. I'm happy about it. It's fine.”Sanna peers at Lilac warily,”So, wha's yer deal? Get an evil-type?”Lilac smiles,”I haven't the faintest idea.” Lilac sorts through clothes, bringing up a bunch of garments and combinations that Sanna outright refuses her.“So Ceru, how'd you meet this crazy?” Sanna asks you as she passes Lilac a pile of clothes to try as you all wait outside of the fitting room.“She helped Bruise by channeling his friend at the spire. She wasn't supposed to though and got in trouble because of us. I went back to apologize and well... She looked like she needed a friend so I kept going. She's really nice when you get to know her.” You lay yourself flat against the ground, checking to make sure that Lilac's still in there. You won't forget when you let her out of your sight last week.“Ah, so that makes some kinda sense. I aint heard ah her beastie though. Mawile? You got any more info on it?”
“Index said that they live in dark places and mimic human voices. Their horns, which look like a black ponytail hang behind their heads. They tend to kill rangers that get too close and lay traps in number.” You shrug.“They're evil, but not like Devon, I guess.”Sanna just kind of nods absently, lost in thought,”So she's a medium with steel-crushing hair...And a compulsive liar. Sounds like you've got it cut out for you Ceru.” She leans over a bit, in her chair. Supporting her head with her hands. She's lost a lot of the mirth she bore before.> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”> “Is this really hard?”> “Will you be her friend?”> Stay quiet.
>>30620173[x] "Things will work out. They have to work out..."
>>30620173>[x] “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”
>>30620173> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”Or at least, she seems to give off the air of someone who's looking over Devon.
>>30620173>> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”
>>30620173>“Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”
>>30620122>>30620089They currently only know of Lilac as a steel-type ranger. An Eevee graft would be approved.And her innate fairy will eventually evolve it.
>>30620232Assuming that outside factors don't trigger any other of the evolutions, right?The flesh ribbon would look strange.
>>30620232>And her innate fairy will eventually evolve it.You know, the flesh ribbons would go nicely with her hair jaw thing.Also, Pixilate Hyper Voice hits like a truck and seems thematically appropriate for Lilac.

>>30620173> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”
>>30620367>Cute CharmPixilate is better.
>>30620392Abilities haven't been mutually exclusive in this.
>>30620173> “Will you be her friend?”
>>30620379>>30620410We may want to hold back on asking people to be her friend. That should just occur naturally as they get to know one another.You can't force or make people pretend they like someone, after all. It might seem silly to get that from just asking a person to be Lilac's friend, but considering Sanna's apparent connection to Devon, it's not that farfetch'd.
>>30620173> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”+> “Will you be her friend?”
>>30620269I don't know, it might get colored differently.Also I don't really see the point of holding out for a steel or ghost eeveelution. Sylveon would already be something that no one has seen before.
>>30620423Yeah you don't ask someone to be her friend, you just see what happens.Honestly I'm not sure if anyone but us will like Lilac, and that was BEFORE the Mawile.
>>30620173>>30620423Eh, yeah, better to play it on the safe side. It's not like people won't become Lilac's friend just because we don't tell them to.
>>30620467Bruise is a nice guy and her friend. Not as close a friend as Ceru, but...like the friends you just hang out with in school.
>>30620467We're going to have to keep her and Devon from killing eachother...
>>30620506I think we will have more trouble stopping her from trolling Devon to deathRemember what happened before she got grafts?
>>30620573What happened pre-grafts is what has me worried.
“Things will work out... They have to work out.” You hug yourself around your belly, cradling the weird flutterbies within. Gotta stay strong.You look to Sanna, even as she listlessly stares on at the changing door,”Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”A jolt of electricity runs through her back, as you say that, giving her a rise to attention with dagger-like eyes pointed at you,”Who told you?”“Umm.. Hemlock said that Devon was... I just sort of figured...”Sanna brings her palm to her face,”Ah freakin' reverse. So I just did. Screw me.”She sighs, bringing her eyes back on you, a bit softer and a little exhausted,”Yeah, I did. I was his handler and it's part a' why I got staryu put in me. It was my reward and also to get ridda the burns he gave me.” She gingerly touches her hands together, remembering something.“He's a good guy, I swear. An' I'll say it. It's cause a me. I didn't give up on him, even if he torched Erika's gym a bit. Bitch deserved it.”> “What did she do?”> “So that's why you defend him?”> “He was worse?”> (Other)
>>30620611[X] What did she do?[X] He was worse?
>>30620611Who's Erika again?>What did she do?We know from Bruise and Marine's previous interaction with Sanna that the third option would be a horrible thing to say to her, so let's stay away from that.
>>30620611> (Other)Do you want to tell me about it?and alsoGot any tips for us?
>>30620611>[x] “What did she do?”Both what she did to deserve the torching and how she reacted to the torching.
>>30620611Ask why she did it in the first place.Like was she and Devon already friends beforehand?
>>30620611> (Other)"did you know him before the implants?"
>>30620611>>30620671> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”This. Let's NOT ask Sanna if Devon was worse. It's obviously a bad thing to say to her.

>>30620611>>30620671>>30620692This. Ask about what happened at Erika's gym, then ask how she got to know Devon.>>30620710What? What made you think that?
>>30620611> “Sanna, you handled Devon, right?”And vetoing>>30620710Because of how wildly inappropriate it is in this conversation. It's such a random thing to ask.
I just realized something. Is Lilac going to have to share a room with us?
>>30620769Yes, either that or a room right beside our own.
>>30620769I'd like to request it specifically.
>>30620769If we don't, she'll have a much easier time of sneaking out to do mischief and get us in trouble.
>>30620759>>30620727I've done some crazy stuff for past gfs. I'm only borderline yandere, what would Devon do back when he wasn't as nice as now when someone he might have had feelings for ended up upset for some reason?
>>30620821she walk through walls already
>>30620842Which means we'll have to cuddle her all night, to make sure she doesn't run off or anything. She might be able to walk through walls, but can she escape Ceru hugs?
>>30620842That doesn't mean we should make it easier for her to wander off and do trouble.
>>30620881>>30620909oh absolutely. her own room should be a privilege that she must earn.Gotta condition our friendPavlov 4 life motherfucker
>>30617347UPDATE YOUR TWITTER!!!!!!
“What did she do?” Your mouth slacks a bit. Devon torched a Leader's gym. Devon torched Leader Erika's gym.Sanna looks away, her thoughts going elsewhere,” Well, it was earlier on when I'd joined the rockets and I'd just started ta handle Devon. I went to Celadon gym for scheduled trainin' and I brought him with because well...” Her eyes flick to you,” You know.”“Erika asked me right away what I was doin' bringing a dog to my gym. For a leader she's kinda a bitch.”Couldn't be worse than Sabrina, you kind of roll your eyes, recalling everything from last week.“She said that it'd be alright if I tied him up outside while I trained. I tried t' tell her about th' program and she jus' refused t' let 'm in on account a' his stink. One a' the girls tried spraying him with perfume an', well... One thing led to another, and I remembered to press his button after he'd already spat out his fire. Good thing it wasn't poison back then or some girls'd really be hurt.”“It was their own damn fault fer bein' bitches though so I don't really care. Last time I went t' Celadon was fer an apology an Leader Erika wouldn't see me.”Sanna stares at the door again,”Hey, you about done? I'm sicka talk'n out here!” She yells at the changing room door, and only gets giggles in returns.“The heck?” She looks to you,”Gonna get that?”You nod and get up to open the changing room,”Lilac?”Inside you see most of the clothes thrown around, a couple actually still hung up in the same assemblage that Sanna had given her. But what's odd is what Lilac is wearing.You stand there for a moment gawking as Lilac folds her arms behind her head to lift her hair up a bit and push out her chest. She's wearing a dress that's almost see-through with a deep violet color that only has clothing for her chest and nethers.
>>30621043>>30621113>Dranulon @Overhuman_Quest 1mYou keep using the Overhuman twitter, Ygg.
You blink slowly,”Umm... Sanna?” You step back, to give the other girl a look.Sanna stares hard,”Lingerie?! I didn't give you that!”Lilac throws her head back in laughter,”It's cute though isn't it Ceru? I found it in one of the other prisons. I think I like wearing this. So breezy!”Sanna gets up, her green skin flushing,”C-Ceru! Make her take it off! She looks way too good in that! Make her take it off right now! Who's she tryin' ta impress!? No one that's who!”> “What's wrong Sanna?I think it looks good, we should get it.”> “Umm Lilac? Take it off.”> “Well Lilac, if you like it...”> (Other)

>>30621131"Lilac, I'm glad that you like it, and it looks very good on you. But you should wear something more substantial when you're in public. I'm sure we can find something else that you like."I think Lilac would look good in a summer dress.

>>30621234She stole it from another one of the changing rooms, she called them prisons. She has ghost powers, she can do that kind of thing.

>>30621131I'll have to veto these votes>>30621187>>30621285We do NOT want to encourage this kind of behavior. We can indulge her, but we don't want her to think it's alright.In addition to teaching Lilac morals, we need to teach her common sense as well.

>>30621131>>30621328This so very much. I like Lilac too, but we're a mentor right now, and we need to impart a sense of responsibility into her.
anybody else see Lilac as a mix between hex maniac and pic with some added height?
>>30621328>>30621367Yeah...that makes sense.Telling Lilac to just take it off isn't good either, since it may come off as unfriendly.Just let Lilac have it, but remind her that we're here to pick out clothes for her to wear OUTSIDE.
>>30621131"It looks nice on you, Lilac, but that isn't 'outside clothes'."
>>30621131Time to correct her in that these aren't "Prisons".
>>30621384Well now those eyes are apart of head cannon
>>30621406this sounds good. we are going to have to explain decency to her arn't we?
>>30621415Yeah might as well point that out.
“Well, if you like it, we should get-”“No, she should not! Where's she gonna be sleeping Ceru?! Where's she gonna be sleeping?!”You realize that you hadn't really thought about it much, and you haven't heard about quarters being prepared for her,”In my room, I guess?”Sanna places her fingers on her brow in a strained gesture,”I cannot be-LIEVE I am hearing this.”Lilac smiles seductively, waving her girls around,”It doesn't quite fit.” Her Red eyes gleam, upturned with her good spirits.Sanna gawks, an eye twitching,”What the heck, where'd you learn something like that?”“A little bird taught me how.”You ask the question.“I started reading some papers while you two were talking. There were woman posing...” She bends over, letting her assets hang down in her bra as her eyes take on a come hither look. “.. .Like this and...”She readjusts, presenting her behind, shaking her modest behind a little bit at the two of you,”...Thiiiissss.”Sanna's flushed all sorts of greens right now and you're feeling pretty cold yourself.“Ceru. Make. Her. Stop.”You nod shyly,”Ah, Lilac. Please. We're hear for outside c-clothes. We can get that, but we need to get more for you to wear. Also, these aren't prisons. They're just fitting rooms. You make sure it fits right.”“Ah, thank you Ceru.” Lilac relaxes her posturing and grabs some outfits from the wall. “I like all of these. Let's get them.”She looks over to Sanna, swaying a bit sensually,”But, is this not Fa-Bu-Lous?”Sanna facepalms again. That was the last time she ever used that word.After getting some shoes, you're done with a majority of the clothes shopping...> “Sanna, would you like to visit the Gym?”> “Hey, lets go to the Salon!”> “Time to go home, thanks a lot for today Sanna.”> (Other)

>>30621632>That was the last time she ever used that word.OH GOD.>>"Hey, lets go to the Salon!”Some bonding time between friends. Help endear Lilac to Sanna. Even if things go down the shithole and we end up fleeing from angry fashionistas, the memories will be fun to share with one another.
>>30621654>W-w-w-what are her girls...Tits. Lilac just went full erotic display. She's going to tease the hell out of every single Rocket cadet, and it will be amazing.

>>30621632>[x] “Time to go home, thanks a lot for today Sanna.”The Salon is a really, really bad idea. And after Ceru's reaction to the makeover thing with Sanna last time, I can't see her suggesting that they go.

>>30621632Changing my vote for Salon here >>30621671 to this >>30621679 instead. I think getting a snack is better. I don't think Lilac's had anything but hospital food for a while either.
>>30621632>“Time to go home, thanks a lot for today Sanna.”Though getting a meal at the food court sounds nice as well.
>>30621632>> “Hey, lets go to the Salon!”No Salon. All of us require specialized care, and no one without a shark-suit and a blowtorch should go near Lilac's hair, and it would probably take a corundum-grit file to deal with her nails now.> (Other)>>30621679food sounds good though.
>>30621632A salon or a visit to the cafe would be fine. I'm wondering if Lilac's dietary habits have been changed? If we do end up going out to lunch, Ceru should ask Lilac if the doctors told her of any changes like that.>>30621720Well, if you want me to give an explanation, Ceru's mood is currently buoyed by the company of friends and she must have gotten a confidence boost from being entrusted with important information and what she did to Devon recently.

“Let's go to the salon! We can get the knots out of Lilac's hair, and get our nails do-” Sanna starts, and you cut her off by raising a hand and extending your claws.You stare at her, while she stares back, and Lilac's the first one to say something,”What is a salon? I wanna go! What's a salon? Tell me, ooo tell me!” She bounces upon her heels.Your stomach rumbles, sounding like a thundering growl. You frown and wither a moment,”I'm hungry...”“Ah, Ceru's Hungry! Let's grab food! Then Salon! Food Then Salon, How's that sound!?” Lilac claps ultil her own stomach growls in sympathy. Her face freezes and then she keels over onto the ground. “Ooooo... Paaaaaiiiiinnnn...” She bemoans as she salivates piteously at the mention of food, her hair strangely enough, does the same with an oddly sweet scent.Sanna takes one whiff,”Huh, kind of like honey... Flowers?”“Paaaaiiiinnnn...”Well then, time for food.The three of you settle in at a cafe at Sanna's recommendation after you put your strength to work with dragging Lilac's heavy body to the establishment.The three of you are seated away from other patrons so as to not disturb them.The waitress eyes you warily as she looks down at her pad for orders.Lilac's looking over the menu, and glancing at the waitress now and then, the oily secretion from her hair more prominent.“Say, the menu looks good, but I was wondering if *you* were on the menu.” Lilac licks her lips as the waitress shudders a bit in sync with Sanna.> Tap Lilac's leash.> Let it pass and say nothing.> “Lilac, order something.”> (Other)Then Order..> “Hoppers and Fries with a side of Oran Juice.”> “Yellow-tail sashimi with Soylent Sauce and water.”> “Cut greens with Sitrus dressing and crouton blocks.”> “I'll have what Lilac's having.”

No need to tap Lilac's leesh or threaten her. We need to show Lilac that we TRUST her to respond to us without our needing to use the shock collar.
>>30622186>> Tap Lilac's leash.No
>>30622186>[X] “Lilac, order something.”Call attention to button with our hand over it.>[X] “I'll have what Lilac's having.It's a chance i'm willing to take.
>>30622186>[x] “Lilac, order something.”>[x] “Yellow-tail sashimi with Soylent Sauce and water.”You know... whether Lilac means that in a sexual way or in a cannibalistic way, I find it deeply, endearingly creepy all the same. But given that she probably means it in the latter way, we might need to lay down some ground rules. #1 should probably be, "Don't eat anyone. Period."And we need to hit up Sanna for tips. She's been there.
>>30622186>Lilac, order something>>30622250No, this anon is right>>30622262We have to trust that Lilac will behave when we ask her to. Our friendship should be enough and the shock collar used only in extreme cases.I don't know what to order, so I'll just let other people decide.
>>30622186> (Other)Lilac, be respectful of civilians.> “Cut greens with Sitrus dressing and crouton blocks.”
>>30622186Just give her a light smack upside the head.And get the sashimi.

>>30622262Yeah, that makes sense. There's no reason why Lilac wouldn't follow what Ceru says anyway. Let's not threaten Lilac. Just tell her to behave around civilians once the waitress is gone.>>30622186Get some sashimi!
>>30622186I second what this guys suggests >>30622250
>>30622262>>30622222Okay, I agree with that.
>>30622186>>30622347Second.Is this like when we had the dinner with Giovanni and the Rocket Rangers? Is the food related to personality quirks?
>>30622186don't...don't make advances towards the civvies, lilac.They don't like it
>>30622186We should eat something dry.
>>30622186> “Hoppers and Fries with a side of Oran Juice.”
>>30622186>“Yellow-tail sashimi with Soylent Sauce and water.”Love eating sashimi.
>>30622186Anything made from Chesto or Micle Berries?
>>30622186>> (Other)Tell Lilac to be courteous to civvies. I can't tell whether she wants to eat the waitress up or out. Either way, not really the time or place.Then order whatever fits Ceru's nature.
>>30622509Ceru likes dry food which a lot of people here don't realize.
>>30622567WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN
>>30622590In the games, pokemon have certain types of food they like. Apparently Ceru likes Dry. It's news to me. I feel like Lilac is gonna swipe it from us with her horn anyway.
>>30622615but what -is- a dry flavor
>>30622590If you're talking about real food, it's like the absence of sugar or something.
>>30622643I think it's something that is spicy, but makes you want to drink something. like peanut butter
>>30622567Fries have a sweet taste to them, I believe. They are made from potatoes, right?
>>30622615This must mean Lilac loves Spicy, but hates Bitter.She's definitely Naughty
>>30622643>>30622590It's the opposite of sweet. Think of it as a temperature metaphor. Sweet=Hot, Dry=Cold. >>30622668Not really.
>>30622645Micle berry are dry and sweet.
>>30622567Thanks for the reminder. >>30622590>>30622636Back when we started joining the Rockets Ceru ate with Giovanni along with Goldie and Bruise I believe. We got to decide what her favorite flavor was which had an effect on her stats.
>>30622643Dry flavor. Imagine starfruit. Or sometimes that taste you get from grapes where your mouth feels dryish.
>>30622686That or she likes Sour and dislikes Dry. Being Impish would fit her too.
Found this on a previous thread:>"Cerulean?">You snap to attention, out of your dream-zone as a server fills your glass with juice."Ah, th-thank you." A tender smile finding its way across your lips at the gesture. It's weird but it's nice too.>"What happens to be your favorite flavor?" Giovanni asks you this, catching you by surprise as he brings you into the conversation."Uh, me? I um.. I guess I like how dry the juice tastes. It's a bit weird but it's really tasty." You smile modestly, as he nods."Bruise, Goldenrod, you two?">Bruise mulls it over as he takes a bite out of a slice of roast slathered in gravy,"I rike 'is shtff. Nice and..." He swallows, gulping it down and licking the corners of his mouth adamantly," Spicy." He grins, digging in and stuffing his face some more.>Goldenrod rolls a berry around in among his salad," I.. I guess I like the sweetness of the berries. Sir." He smiles a bit timidly, intimidated by the presence of all the other people, yet that smile is just as giddy that he's on route to become one of them.>Kitty cackles, holding a fork at Bruise, her claws extending naturally from the tips of her strange fingers,"You've got that right kid! That's definitely the best part!" Her leery eyes look over to Giovanni a bit naughtily,"Sir, is there a reason you're asking them such a strange question?">Giovanni simply shrugs as he draws more liquid from his glass," Oh, no reason at all. Of course this is an inconsequential question."
>>30622186LilacLilac plsI can't tell whether you mean that literally or figuratively and that's the scariest part. On the one side, cannibalism is obviously bad, but on the other, Cerulean hardly needs that sort of confusion.
>>30622820Er, yeah, we know she likes Dry food.
>>30621969The Pastebin says that she is 17 years old.
“Lilac, order something.” You give her a light tap on the shoulder, returning her to attention.“Ah, right... Umm... I don't know what to get.” She glues her eyes back to her menu, yet they keep wandering up to the waitress.“If you don't stop looking at me like that, I'm going to have to call the manager.”You tap the Leash this time, giving Lilac a subtle jolt.“Ahh, alright. I'll just have what Ceru's having.”You order the Hoppers and fries with a side of Oran juice for yourself and some comes in for Lilac as well as the three of you talk.You chastise Lilac a bit and remind her to be courteous to civvies.”They're not for eating Lilac.” Sanna says to her.“I was just kidding,” Lilac says with her red eyes peering.“Tell better jokes Lilac,” You pinch her cheek between your fingers.“I'll twy Ceru” She yields before you release her.The food comes. You ordered Fried and seasoned Grasshoppers with fries.Sanna ordered a cut green salad with an assortment of berries.You take the first bite of your hoppers and instantly stick your tongue out. “Blech, what is this?” The flavor cracks and pops in your mouth. It's good but it's just too spicy for you. In contrast, Lilac's gobbling up her hoppers with what you can only describe as a monster possessed.Forgoing any talk, she wipes them out before pointing at yours with a leg still sticking out of her mouth. You shove over the hoppers and let her have at them as you content yourself with the fries, far favoring them.Sanna eats her bitter salad while pushing out all the sweet things.“So, what all is goin' on with yer hair-” Sanna leers at Lilac as she sets to work on the second batch of hoppers,”Y'know, nevermind.”“So Ceru, what do you think of Devon?”“What do you mean by that?” You ask as you graze lazily upon a fry.

>>30622914>>30622993Oh, well then, let's discuss everybody>Devon's a good ranger. He's headstrong. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it makes it hard for people to take him seriously sometimes. And he can be a bit of a dork sometimes, which is funny.>Mention what he told Ceru back when we invited him over to have lunch with the rest of the team + the incident with Lilac in his room.
>>30622914"It's like, every time he does something nice, he immediately has to ruin it."
>>30622914>> He's a good ranger.I owe him one, and, I guess I understand him better... but I still wish he was nicer.
>>30622993We might be the teensiest bit super grateful to him.But he's such a dick it's REALLY hard to say thank you to him.
>>30622914>[X] Tell her what you REALLY think...>[X] He's a good ranger.He can be a ass at times, but he has been rather good lately.
>>30622993These, Prof.>>30623037>>30622944>>30623053We can all agree that he's a good ranger.We don't need to mention that he needs to be nicer or anything since I think we mutually understand that Devon's just easily angered because of his implant.
>>30622914>> He's a good ranger.We should mention Lilac playing a prank on him. Seems like a good way for her and Sanna to connect.
>>30622914>>30623073>>30623077These seem good. I'll add my vote to the pile.
>>30622914He's really hard to work with but hes actually pretty reliable when it counts. I owe him big time
>>30623053Sounds good to me.
>>30622914> Tell her what you REALLY think..."He's been good lately, and once you understand him he's a lot easier to work with.He saved my life, he's reliable and trustworthy in his own way. And I might like him a bit."
>>30622914>> I... really don't know.COnflicted Ceru is go.
Let's redo this.> Devon's a good ranger... When his head isn't up his ass. Every time he does something nice he has to go around and ruin it.(A bit dismissing)> I guess he's alright when he's not being mean. You know what he said after the mission...?(Coy)> Devon's a good ranger. He's headstrong. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it makes it hard for people to take him seriously sometimes. And he can be a bit of a dork sometimes, which is funny. (Objective)
>>30622993>what do we think of Devon[magicalrealm]He needs to be taught how to be a Good Dog,[/magicalrealm]
>>30623126A bit too pushy for my tastes. I like Devon too, but we need to make developments in the story first that can show or hint at Ceru liking Devon.>>306231363
>>30622993I would say something about how he's a cool dude underneath all the houndoom, but his implant kinda fucked him over. That said, I would go on to say how I felt like he was getting himself under control, and that he may be able to reverse some of his asshole tendencies if he takes an additional non-evil Pokemon.Then again, I'm not Ceru.
>>30623136> Devon's a good ranger. He's headstrong. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it makes it hard for people to take him seriously sometimes. And he can be a bit of a dork sometimes, which is funny. (Objective)
End Vote. Huh. Sustaining objective. Alright.
>>30623136>> I guess he's alright when he's not being mean. You know what he said after the mission...?(Coy)
>>30623258What do you mean by sustaining?
>>30623276Why ask?Who are you and where is this coming from? How do you go by it?I'm tickled pink with shades of green.
>>30623276I think he means we're gonna keep being vague about whether we like-like Devon or not.
>>30623319the answer is I DON'T KNOOOOWDEVON HAS HIS POINTS BUT SO DOES GOLDIE BUT ALEXIS AND OH GAWSH
>>30623319That wasn't even a choice, though.And hey, I like Devon too, but if you want Ceru to say she likes Devon, it has to make sense after enough developments in the story itself. We can see the chemistry, yeah, but that doesn't mean the process is complete. Like with Goldie. Enough has happened in the story for Ceru to admit she likes Goldie. Not so with Devon, who she's only really starting to get to know now.
>>30623333And so does Lilac
>>30623146Really now, that's a bit much. Besides, Goldenrod sleeps under the bed. Dogs sleep on the bed and keep our feet warm.Unrelated: Huh, I didn't think Devon's backstory would be like that. Sanna's pretty bro-tier, huh? She's seen some shit, but she had to put up with full Dickass-Mode Devon.
>>30623258>>30623319Sanna's gonna get bored of Ceru soon and really start calling her Ice Queen, or tease her until she can get something juicy.
>>30623400she hasn't asked us about goldie yet
>>30623361I'm pushing CeruxGoldie myself, I was just stating what I thought Ygg meant when he said "sustaining objectivity".
I feel Ceru has a poor self image of her body (fat cat, the fur, the claws) so no serious boy talk for her. that and 2 busy being ELITE and keeping an eye on Lilac. She a top cadet, got lot of responsibilities on top of the standard Rocket duties.
>>30623467Oh, no, she's actually thought that she looked pretty good in some dresses before. She just gets down when she remembers how civvies may see her.
>>30623467Very true, but this reminds me of something.You know who I want to visit at some point? Bryan.
>>30623467>>30623500What he said. She's got some confidence, but it's hurt when she interacts with non-rangers.>>30623507We should definitely visit the Cerulean Gym cadets and our old gym leader before we leave the Dome, yeah.
>>30623467>>30623500Yeah, I can see that. I mean, she's a teenage girl, and she's basically turned herself into an inhuman monster. She tries to stay upbeat, but goddamn, the world is pretty awful. She's got body issues, leadership problems, and now she's got a borderline serial killer for a roommate.
>>30623579>borderline serial killerAnd possible cannibal.
>>30623579Pretty sure she's still only 12.
>>30623595That is something to look out for, if only for other we're safe
>>30623550Hopefully Lilac won't destroy the Cerulean Gym.
>>3062363912. She had 2 b-days in the time skip.
>>30623550we aren't leaving the dome, though
>>30623656You said the time skip was only 1 1/2 years though?
>>30623701After a three month skip. And I never stated when Ceru's birthday was.
>>30623690We're going on the extended out of dome mission in a few months.
>>30623595That too. I mean, I feel like we're probably safe, but everyone else is fair game. >>30623610Pubescent, then. The point still stands that we're at a tumultuous age, and we've got a lot of shit going on. We just finished a mission where we almost got turned into a rape-slave/killed. Then one of our closest friends almost dies, and ends up as a creepy, manipulative, psycho-ranger. >>30623690There was an exploration mission coming up that we were planning on going on. I think we'll have to see how Lilac does beforehand.
>>30623467I get the feeling spending any amount of time with Lilac is going to cause a lot of confusion, given her newfound 'confidence'.>"B-but girls can't kiss girls!"
>>30623735no we aren't. that was one of the conditions of being Lilac's handler. we can't go on any out of dome missions. and I don't think we can fix her in just a few months...
what would a scyhter graft do to the person's hands?just curious
>>30623792Ever seen Edward Scissorhands?
>>30623770Yeah I'm not really confident in our ability to make sure she's no longer a threat to herself or others in that short amount of time.
>>30623792Something to consider. Figured that they'd wield the blades separately while using the wings and insectoid muscle for blindingly fast movements.Scyther's craziest trait is that it's crazy fast on a cut.
>>30623735On a few months she'll be mission ready and we'll bring her with us. There's no way Cerulean would pass this up.
>>30623770He does speak the truth as we have been excused from missions as we have a new responsibility now. Just means we get more intensive training to do.
>>30623792Something like this
>>30623851She'll be ready. She isn't even full Evil type. Let's ask Sanna how long it took her and Devon.
>>30623841Is Scyther bug and flying? Or just flying?Might be good for Lilac...I mean, she could use the speed boost.
>>30623887You really think it doesn't have a drain? Or that we couldn't clean it up?
>>30623896Scyther is Bug/Flying.As for speed boost... She already knows a priority move.
>>30623841>Figured that they'd wield the blades separatelyYou mean, as weapons?Although that'd mean it wouldn't evolve with them. Scyther's evolution is part steel, right? Bug/Steel?
>>30623896>Lilac with Scyther speed and Steel bonesWelp we just made Scizor
>>30623921Shadow Sneak or Sucker Punch?
>>30623887Yeah but she was already crazy and didn't really value human life.Also, she has Fairy bullshit, which might be its own unique bag of worms.
>>30623921Very nice.Personally, I think it would be hilarious, for the potential for puns when she evolves Scissor
>>30623917Oops wrong thread
>>30623950She can't get a scyther because 2 type limit. She's Steel/Fairy already.
>>30623792I'd imagine they'd become wrist blades and stick out over the hand or something. Seems like it'd be a pain in the ass to have. Kind of like how we were gonna graft our spikes to our elbows instead. Can't recall if we actually did that or not.>>30623896Bug/Flying. Lilac is Steel/Fairy, though we don't know that. As another anon pointed out earlier, she's pretty limited on her graft options unless she goes for Flying or Normal.Also, JESUS CHRIST NO. She's already a cannibalistic, intangible, steel-boned monster. We don't need her at insane speeds too.>>30623950Hue.
>>30623950She can't be Bug as well as Steel/Fairy.
>>30623945From what we've seen, her Mawile implant has confirmed to make her a compulsive liar to those who aren't close to her and has given her a craving for "long pig". Or, well, any kind of meat, I suppose. Anything as long as she can mash it up in her jaws. Maybe Mawile's are constantly on the teething stage...
>>30623966>Kind of like how we were gonna graft our spikes to our elbows instead. Can't recall if we actually did that or not.We put them in our fingertips and use their cryokinesis combined with the fish guns in our arm to shoot icicles.
>>30623964>>30623972Aw. You guys are no fun.
“Devon's a good ranger.” You pause to think as you swallow down a fry, “He's stubborn, but that's not really too bad. It makes it hard for people to take him seriously sometimes, especially when he . And he can be a bit of a dork sometimes, which is kind of funny, I guess.”Sanna stares at you, idly chewing the same leaf for a bit too long before swallowing. She leans over the table a little with her elbows planted on the surface,”Is that so Queenie? I've been hearing some things... Like about how you tackled Devon to the floor last week... What was that about?”You squint your eyes as you feel a flush come over you. “Who told you about that?” You manage weakly.Sanna sticks out a purple tongue,”Devon did.” She smiles,”You just couldn't resist getting on him and telling him what a bad boy he's been, could you?”“W-what are you talking about, I di-”“And to behave. Or you'll have to train him?”“Lies.” You grab your ears and pull them down,”I didn't do that, no. No...”Sanna's grin widens, revealing her unaltered teeth,”Ah huh. What's the matter Ceru? Kitty got your ton-”You hear a splash before you look up and see Sanna's face drenched by water. Her eyes casually shut before it disappears into her vines. “Thanks for that.” She gripes“You're welcome,” Lilac smiles with her reds glinting again.You mumble a thank you to Lilac for interrupting Sanna's flow as she finishes getting rid of the water.You sigh,”So what was all that about?”Sanna, busy dabbing her blouse with a vine,”If you're too dense to figure it out, then I can't really help you. We should be getting back though, huh?”You nod, meek after that bit of teasing.The girl's day ended a stop earlier than you would've liked, but it was at least nice to hang out with Sanna and Lilac, even if they clash a bit.
On your way out of the cafe, you and Sanna split the bill.The three of you head back, though Lilac remains a bit cheery, Sanna's words bothered you a bit. Dense? What the heck is she talking about anyway? How are you dense?The Tram is nearly devoid of people this early. Lilac sits next to you staring outside the window with Sanna sitting opposite.> “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”> “Do you like Devon?”> “How long were you Devon's handler?”> (Other)
You know the way she tries to tease women I wonder if Lilac is actually attracted to them.Sound the sirens everyone the Lilac Artic Submarine! is a valid ship.
>>30624020> “Do you like Devon?”GOSSIP
>>30624020>[x] “How long were you Devon's handler?”
>>30624020> “How long were you Devon's handler?”
>>30624020>> “How long were you Devon's handler?”
>>30624001>especially when heGot cut off there, Prof.>>30624020> “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”> “How long were you Devon's handler?”The second one is for when Sanna inevitably brushes off Ceru's questions.
>>30624020>“How long were you Devon's handler?”"And why'd you take the job in the first place?"
>>30624020> “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”Well, Cerulean was going to have to learn about relationships one day.
>>30624020> “Do you like Devon?”> “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”
>>30623644Hm, I was going to say Cerulean Gym is kind of a shitty place for her to visit since she probably can't swim with all the metal, but there'd still be a bit of buoyant force, so exercising in shallow water might still be a way to get her stamina up. Plus, old friends. And we now know Lilac would probably love to pick out a swimsuit
>>30624020> “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”> “How long were you Devon's handler?”
>>30624020> “How long were you Devon's handler?”...But seriously, how am I dense? Lilac's the one with metal bones! She's denser than I am!>>30624074"Cerulean look, I'm gonna re-enact 'Jaws!' "
>>30623982I'm pretty sure Mawile's second set of jaws isn't actually connected to a digestive tract or anything, it's just horns that can secrete Sweet Scent.That's why it's called the deception pokemon.
>>30624074True. There may be a few shallow pools around for Lilac to undergo some resistance training.>>30624020> “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”> “How long were you Devon's handler?”
>>30624020>[x] “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”
>>30624074>love to pick out a swimsuitIf she trained at the gym she would get gym regulation swimsuit. Cleaned and rotated every day with a one or two size fit all motif.
>>30624020> “How long were you Devon's handler?”And> “Do you like Devon?”For the lols
>>30624020"I'm not dense. I'm twelve."
>>30624100Again, they're horns. Not a mouth for eating, but a tool for killing.
>>30624123>[X] “What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”It's funny because the very fact that she has to ask proves that she is dense.
>>30624020 > “How long were you Devon's handler?”
>>30624020>“What do you mean dense? How am I dense?”>“How long were you Devon's handler?”>>30624067No, Cerulean already knows about relationships. She just doesn't know that much beyond what people think looks attractive.
>>30624146There's always self mastication
>>30624100>>30624146I just mean that they may enjoy crushing things in their second "mouth".
>>30624128I don't know if you meant that as Ceru being self aware of her own age-appropriate naivete, but I can't help reading it as being petulant about being old and mature.Poor Ceru, most of the people she hangs around are hormonal teenagers.
>>30624146or, they could be a mouth just for chewing big things down so the smaller mouth can eat it.
It just occurred to me, but this quest would be very different if we'd gone with bug type grafts. Kind of a weird tangent, but the scyther bit made me think of it. Just think, we could have grafted that Heracross and been a badass muscle girl.Of course, we'd also probably be dead by now because gen1 bugs are so lackluster. We were born in the wrong region for bug grafts, I guess... Just think of what Sinnoh'd be like. Galvantula, Scolipede, Durant, Volcarona. We'd be a beast.
>>30624251Yeah, but we wouldn't get to be a ROCKET.
>>30624251I think getting bug grafts means that we'd pretty much ALSO be Poison, just by default.
>>30624251>Bug grafts make things harderConsidering the enemies we've been fighting? Actually I disagree. We'd have kicked Hypno's fucking ass.
>>30624251>Scyther>Pinsir>Butterfreeeh, could be worse. Butterfly wings might be kinda kaiwaii
>>30624303Koga has made Bug grafts pretty badass.
>>30624251We would have been besties with Janine and gotten involved with ninja shenaningans.
>>30624322And he doesn't even have any of the good ones. It's not what you got its how you use it.
>>30624353Nah. What you got plays a damn big part as well. Dude with a dragonite will stomp a weedle dude even if they're at the same level of skill.
>>30624378Koga is apparently comparable to the Elite Four, however. And he's just a Bug man.
>>30624386He's primarily a Poison man.
>>30624378Maybe in game but not here. You don't beat a Ninja Master
>>30624274That'd be a big downside. I'm really glad that we're a rocket.>>30624278Not necessarily. There's a number of pure bug/flying types in gen 1. It seems like we've got a fair number of Johto mons running around, so that'd add a few.But yeah, we would probably start with Bug/Poison. I can't see /tg/ taking like... Caterpie over something like Weedle or Venonat. Being Poison wouldn't be that bad though. I wonder if there would be a way to get Shedinja?>>30624352That does sound fun, but we'd have to make some more friends beyond Talse/Haru. They're nice, but they're kind of boners. Janine is cool though.
>>30624020"Answer honestly: Should I ever try pulling a Kitty ever again?"
>>30624418No, it matters in here. Weedle man will not beat dragonite man unless weedle man is some kind of god of tactics and dragonite man has severe brain damage.
>>30624419>, but they're kind of bonersUhhh anon?
>>30624401This reminds me of a question for the Professor: Is it possible to build up a tolerance to poison types?I remember Janine mentioning something like that.
>>30624419Nah, Nincada is Bug/Ground.Also there's no way for Shedinja to not be terrifying.
>>30624434I mean yeah a Weedle man won't, but he'd be a Beedrill man by then.
>>30624434I don't think the raw stats translate that way, anon.
>>30624434I'm gonna go with your wrong. Skill and training are more important in this setting. Like how Kitty can learn steel moves. I'm sure there's tons if ways to increase fighting power and resistances. Just look at Bruno out there surviving on his own.
>>30624434Koga's signature move is literally called Toxic.>>30624448Not particularly. You can build up your immunes to suppress it, but most poison type secretions require something to cure it or rest until it's run its course.Or die before that happens.
>>30624419>ShedinjaShedinja are shadow clones that a Ranger with a Ninjask implant can create by quickly shedding off their outer shell/skin. The Shedinja possesses a temporary copy of the Ranger's mind which slowly fades away until it becomes a brain dead husk. The Shedinja are usually killed by monsters, but if they survive, they're given a mercy killing by the Ranger who made them.
>>30624461Yeah, Beedrill ranger might just sting the Dragonite guy, and wait him out and win that way.Or get like, 20 of his beedrill friends to go womp on him.
>>30624434Just use Toxic and then play Avoid the Hyper Beam.
>>30624441...as in they're not that great? Boner as in like... fuck, what did I mean? ...Talse and Haru are dildos.>>30624449Nincada changes type to Bug/Flying when it evolves. So would we have to get our own skin grafted back on for Shedinja? That sounds horri->>30624477Oh god.But man, just think of how fast we'd be. Ninjask+Crobat+Scyther or something.
>>30624517Haru seems like the better of the two, but he needs someone to light a fire under his ass.
>>30624476Anytime I see people talking about Koga or poison types, I think http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKM7fmLnypU
>>30624517I wonder if Prof ever takes down notes of our conversation to apply to future Rangers...>>30624001>>30624058Prof, you messed up your last post a little.
>>30624476>cant vecome immune to poisonI don't like it. Genetically enhanced rangers should he able to recuperate sooner and/or get used to poison in general over time.
>>30624419>It seems like we've got a fair number of Johto monsWhen Gen 2 came around, a lot of the new species were either retconned into Kanto, or 'appeared' there over the timeskip. Like Slugma is only found in Kanto, not Johto. You could get Heracross from trees in Kanto, like we've seen, and Spinarak/Ariados were near Viridian for the Fuschias to pick up.
>>30624577That would kind of render Poison kinda useless as a type, though.Their whole thing is 'poison you' and wait for you to die'.Besides. That's why we have Antidotes
>>30624577Remember that this is genetically enhanced poison, then.Mundane poisons? Fine, sure, we can handle them. But MUTANT monster poison?
>>30624591It's also the only place you get Murkrow and Houndour.The reason they're not in the Kanto pokedex is because they didn't leave survivors!
>>30624577Genetically enhanced rangers get to resist genetically engineered pokemagic poisons, not ignore them (unless they are also poison or steel or have an appropriate ability)
>>30624517>Ninjask+Crobat+Scyther or something.Pinsir for pure bug bruiser and a risky OHKO move
>>30624560I don't write it down, but I do keep it in mind. Same with Overhuman.>>30624577Lemme rephrase that. If you became a poison or steel you'd become immune. Other rangers with a pre-existing dual type are already purposed for other business.Devon can't be burnt and his poison isn't something he's wholly immune to.>>30624602>>30624615Pretty much.>>30624624Still the worst-looking bug-type of any generation.
>>30624624>Pinsir>Pinsirs get put on hands.>Two deadly crushing hands>It's Guillotine attack snaps their neck one handed.I like.
>>30624638>Still the worst-looking bug-type of any generation.And it got a ridiculously powerful mega
>>30624650>hug someone so hard they break in halfLet's not. There are plenty of other bug types that don't give us great honking, inconvenient horns on our hands.
>>30624663>That Thrash>AerilateDaamn>155 base attack.Snap.Mega Mawile still the best.
>>30624638>Still the worst-looking bug-type of any generation.You're funny.
>>30624745Yeeesh. Right.It's close but Pinsir still wins that title. It's the color-scheme that kills me.
>>30624745TALK SHITGET HIT
>>30624745At least Shuckle's cute.
>>30624745hey, don't fuckle with Shuckle
>>30624776It's too bad it's got the most awkward typing I've ever seen.It'd be an awesome addition to Bruno, or Brock's arsenal.
>>30624745>talking shit about ShuckleI express my firm belief that you are a bad person, and that your parentage is probably questionable....But no, I wouldn't exactly clamor for us to graft Shuckle. We get enough fat jokes already.
“Dense? I'm not dense. How am I dense?” You come out with that out of left field after having been quiet for so long. It's really bothering you though. Especially with the way that Sanna's just kind of grinning at your outburst now and trying not to laugh.“Oh, you're dense Ceru, I'm sorry but that's just how it is. Like I said, if you weren't I wouldn't need to tell you.” She chuckles haughtily, her vision cast off to the side with “I-know-something-you-don't” eyes.You're just about ready to growl until you realize that you're in public and calmly restrain yourself. After taking a deep breath you continue polite conversation,”So, how long were you Devon's handler until he was cleared?”Her haughty grin fades at that question,”About a year or so before he finally calmed down. His evolution helped him a bit, but he still has it rough sometimes as you can tell.”Sanna sighs at that point, mumbling something that your enhanced ears catch,”Sometimes he just doesn't know who he is...”“Anyway, you just need to do what you're doin. Lilly here seems pretty stable if you wanna put her next to Hot Dog. She'll be fine, aright?”You smile a bit and look over to Lilac as she looks back down to you, smiling. She ruffles your hair and slides back down into her seat.“I'll be alright Ceru. So long as you and Blue are here.”You blink at that,”Blue?”Lilac nods,”Uh huh.”“Who's that?”“My other friend.”“The sword?”“Uh huh.”“Here?”“Right here.” Lilac sticks a hand down her mouth, making Sanna cringe a bit even as your eyes go wide.No... No... No...> Wait and see.> Tap the leash.
>>30624799>> Wait and seeOh god.
>>30624799> Wait and see.
>>30624799do NOT tap the leash while she has her hand on a sword inside of her> Wait and see.
>>30624799"STOP. I won't forbid you from doing that, but pull Blue out somewhere less public."
>>30624799>[x] Wait and see.Let's stare into the abyss
>>30624799> Tap the leash.We can't let her pull out a sword on the train. It'll cause a panic. Lilac only has two friends. A soul-eating sword, and us. Dawww.
>>30624799>> Wait and seeGuess where they got all the steel for her body?
>>30624799Oh shit.ohshitohshitohshit> Tap the leash.i don't want Ceru to keep using the leash, but we need to firmly establish that stuff like this should not be out in the open.
>>30624799>Wait and see."The only reason I'm not tapping the leash right now is because I'm worried that might make you accidentally choke or cut yourself open.This is still very much not okay."
>>30624799>[x] Tap the leash.no there are cameras and security is heightened from previous esper shenaniganssorry Lilac....
>>30624799>> Wait and see
>>30624799Tell her to stop, don't shock her. She might choke and we can't keep using pain to keep her in line. Just saying stop worked in the restaurant.
>>30624879Tell her to stop before hand. If she doesn't then tap, I say.
>>30624799>tap the leash"Not in public, Lilac!"
>>30624799"Lilac, don't pull Blue out in public."
>>30624799>[X] Wait and see.
>>30624799>Wait and see>Tell her not to pull Blue out here in publicNo need to use the leash, just simply tell her to stop.
>>30624799Neither, put both hands on her shoulders, and say "Lilac!" and in a hoarse whisper "-No swords on the tram-"
>>30624799>Wait and seeThis isn't really something that needs the leash. Or rather, like some other anon said, we don't want to surprise her while she's pulling a sentient weapon out of her mouth.You all know how protective Blue can be.
>>30624799Don't tap the fucking leash while she has her arm and a sword in her throat.Just put our hand on her arm and say that we can introduce Sanna when we aren't on a tram full of panicky civvies.
>>30624909This seems reasonable.
Well, most of us seem to agree that using the leash while she's pulling Blue out is a bad idea.>>30624799If needed, we can put our hand over Lilac's to stop her from pulling Blue out. Just in case she doesn't properly hear us.
>>30624909indeed. No swords on the tram.
>>30624909Changing my vote from leash tap to this.
>>30624799Wait and see
>>30624909Plus this would put in front of her, blocking everyone from seeing Lilac's new act.Alright, changing from>>30624860 to this.
Wait. I just realized something.The sword is probably still at the hospital. Maybe Blue just left his container to get closer to Lilac. I mean, the last ghost she ate went down her gullet. Maybe she could keep Blue in there too.
Wait and see with our hand on the button.
>>30624799>>30625001Yeah, smart thinking. We wouldn't want any civvies to see what Lilac is doing.
>>30625002I have a feeling that they didn't want to keep it or Lilac
“Lilac!” You place a hand on Lilac's shoulder and whisper to her after she jumps a little bit from the sudden contact.“-No swords on the tram. “ You whisper harshly. She looks at you for a moment, and you stare back at her harshly.She makes a questioning noise with a gurgle, her hand still down her throat.“No.” You whisper.”No. Not here.”Lilac adjusts her hand and withdraws it with sweet-smelling slobber covering her mitt. She wipes that off on some of her new clothes, making Sanna cringe again.“That's sooo gross...” Sanna whispers with a visible shake.“Sorry, you apologize for Lilac as some of the civvies on the tram gawk at you. You all get weird looks for the rest of the ride. Lilac seems effectively oblivious to the whole thing.That sweet smell from her hair and saliva lingers in the tram, making you crave something sweet to eat. It's kind of annoying since you can't eat anything right now. But Lilac really does smell good.“At least she listens well.” Sanna grins as she leans lazily in her seat. The rest of the tram-ride is awkward.Getting back to the dorm with Lilac's clothes and a few new outfits for your own wardrobe is nice. You thank Sanna again as you're putting clothes away yet she sticks around to ask about what Lilac was going to do on the tram earlier.“You wanna see?” Lilac giggles madly with a deviant smile pulling across her face. Out of a seat, she takes the chance to get uncomfortably close to Sanna. Lilac's always had a blatant disregard for personal space, you remember.“U-um... Sure?” Sanna says with a bit of uncertainty, yet you reassure her while you separate your clothes and Lilac's in your wardrobe.“I'm watching. Lilac, just don't swing him around, okay?”
“Alright!” Lilac resumes the act in private. Reaching down her throat and slowly pulling out the ghostly sword from her gut. You stop sorting clothes to watch her as your and Sanna's eyes slowly grow into saucers as you try to put together how she fit that inside her body.The ancient sword that she calls blue is pulled out, sheath, tassel, Lilac's spit and all.“H-how...” Is all Sanna can manage as she stares at Lilac.Lilac giggles in response as she begins to go through traditional sword stances and movements without drawing the blade. “When they gave him back I wanted to make sure they didn't change their mind. I learned this trick some time ago in the spire, but I never thought about using it like this.”You look at Lilac, checking her eyes and kind of smile as you return to sorting out matching outfits.“Learned ta do what? How'd ya do it?”Lilac shrugs as she returns the sword into her body,”I don't know. Ghost trick I guess? I just figured it out with the way the spire is.”“The way the spire is? Sorry, I haven't been much.”You answer the question this time,” You can walk ten floors or twenty floors and get to the same floor. It doesn't make sense.”“Nor should it.” Lilac affirms.“That makes no sense.”“Exactly!” Lilac snaps her fingers.“What? Oh.” Sanna facepalms,” I give up.”Lilac smiles dangerously, a sliver of sweet drool leaking from her mouth,”Does that mean I can eat ya?”Sanna looks at her and then to you even as you begin to chastise her,”Can I feed her?”What?> “Ohhhkay?”> “No.”> (Other)
>>30625057He's saying that Blue, the soul residing in the blade, may have stopped being in the sword.
>>30625234>“Ohhhkay?”Lousy feline curiosity.
>>30625234> (Other)NOBODY IS EATING ANYBODY
>>30625234>>[x] “Ohhhkay?”just be careful, I get the blame if something goes wrong
>>30625234Who's talking at the end? Sanna? Sanna wants to feed Lilac?
>>30625234"She's been pretty good, especially for her first day.Sure, but be careful. Don't bite off anything important." >>30625278She regenerates. Why not.
>>30625234"It's your funeral."
>>30625234>[X] “Ohhhkay?”She's not really a pet though. Gotta bear that in mind.
>>30625278She's gonna detach a couple of vines and feed her them.She can still feel them, right? Is this some sick vore thing, except noone is harmed?
>>30625234>>30625294>"She's not a pet, Sanna. But...suuuuure, I guess?"
>>30625234If this is about to be what I think it's about to be, then Ygg and I truly do frolic through the same magical realm.>[x] “Ohhhkay?”
>>30625305On the other hand, I can sorta see how Sanna managed to rein Devon in.
>>30625234>[x] “Ohhhkay?”Man this is going to some strange places.Keep it up, Ygg.
>>30625305Having dual-regen implants is wonderful.
>>30625234>"Ohhhkay?""But Lilac, I just want to let you know that this is an extremely special case and it's because she can regenerate. NO doing this with other rangers. Do you understand?"
>>30625404"Or with civvies for that matter."
>>30625404>Feeding cannibalNever a good idea.Even for regenerators.
>>30625404>>30625422Let's make it simpler and say everytime Lilac gets an idea, she runs it through us first.
>>30625404>>30625442It's not Lilac who wants to feed Sanna. It's Sanna who wants to feed Lilac.'Course, it was Lilac who proposed the idea in the first place. Better tell her that it's only because it doesn't hurt Sanna and because Sanna can regenerate her tentacles.
“She's not an eevee Sanna but, okay? I guess?” You finish sorting the clothes to watch intently. You're actually really curious about this. Curious enough to let it happen and curious enough to watch.Sanna leads Lilac to the bed that the two of you are going to be sharing and has her sit down as she undoes her ponytail,”Believe it or not, my vines are actually pretty fleshy. They grow back in a day without me givin' it much mind.” She grabs a few tendrils and yanks them away as they unfasten themselves from her head. You an already see it beginning to grow back as she offers them over.“Here ya go. They're pretty tasty. But I'm the only one that can do this, so don't go chompin on peeps, okay?”Lilac takes the tendril and puts her mouth on it, sucking at it a little bit before chewing at it.Sanna looks at you with a wink of her red eyes. “And now for the best part a' this...” The vine spasms in Lilac's mouth before the ghastly ranger falls back onto the bed, out cold with the tendril half-eaten and hanging out of her mouth.“She's gonna have some good dreams.” Sanna laughs as she pats Lilac's stomach. “That should put her out for a couple hours. If you want some free tome to yourself I suggest doing this and increasing the tether to twenty-five meters. It'll at least let you visit other people's rooms. Or if you want to drag her along like a lump...”“Or just hit her with smellingsalts.”You can't help but laugh a little bit yourself at the harmless trick,”I didn't really see that coming.”“Ask me to do it anytime, I don't mind. At least it'd beat shockin' her into a coma... Oh, want to do her makeup while she's out cold?”> “Sure!” More girl-time.> “It's alright Sanna, thanks a bunch. Today was fun.”> (Other)
>>30625521> “It's alright Sanna, thanks a bunch. Today was fun.”
>>30625521>Sure>But remember the fur this time>And let me try my hand at it tooIt's nice when we get to do friend stuff with people.
>>30625521>[x] “Sure!” More girl-time.
>>30625521Aww, she'd probably be excited for that if she was awake.
>>30625521>> “Sure!” More girl-time
>>30625521> “Sure!” More girl-time.
>>30625521>Sanna offers Lilac some rather phallic vines>Lilac starts sucking on it>She bites it>It spasms>Blows a load of Sleep Powder in her mouthAnd it was also cannibalism. This shit just got magical and I fucking love it.
>>30625521"Sure"Keep an eye out for Blue.
>>30625521>[x] “Sure!” More girl-time.practice makes perfect
>>30625521>[x] “It's alright Sanna, thanks a bunch. Today was fun.”
>>30625521Ah. The fruits of friendship finally bear at last.The more people we connect with Lilac, the better her training will go.>Sure!
Lilac is going to need a custom made toothbrush isn't she?
>>30625585Nah, her teeth are still normal. Though she will need a lot of shampoo if she gets her horns dirty.
>>30625609Prof, you messed up over here.>>30624001>It makes it hard for people to take him seriously sometimes, especially when heWhat was supposed to go at the end?
>>30625620>>It makes it hard for people to take him seriously sometimes, especially when he acts like a jerk.
>>30625609Just throw some WD40 on that shitYou can solve basically any problem with liberal enough application of WD40.
>>30625627Is that like the Robitussin of metalworks?
>>30625638It is a magical substance
Sanna grabs her make-up kit from her room and the two of you get down to business using Lilac as a practice-dummy as you learn how to apply makeup.Lilac sleeps soundly through it all and the finished work on her very human face is actually pretty gratifying. Foundation to match her pale skin while giving it a bit more color with blush. Mascara upon her eyelashes to make them look thicker and fuller. Eyeshadow to increase her mystique and violet lipstick to go with her spooky demeanor.“Oh wow... she's so pretty.” You can't help but stare at the result with a giddy smile on your face. Backing off, you look into a mirror at your own face.“What's wrong Ceru?” Sanna asks as she packs up her kit, meticulously making sure that everything is in its proper place.“Think I should shave off the fur of my face? I could wear that too without it looking bad...” You don't remember how you look without fur. It's been a very long time.“Do what ya think is best Ceru. For the record, I love your fur, even if I can't make it pretty with this stuff.” Sanna pats the make-up kit, standing at the door. “I'm gonna get back t' my room. Feel'n pretty tired with all this stuff.” She turns to leave, halting at the door a moment.“An' thanks. It's nice havin' someone else to do girl stuff with.” Sanna leaves. Just you and Lilac now as lilac snoozes away without a care in the world.> See how Bruise is doing.> Ask Devon how you're dense.> Go bug Goldie.> Lay down with Lilac for a nap. > (Other)
>>30625757> Lay down with Lilac for a nap.
>>30625757I'm tempted to go see Devon, but I think we should see Bruise first so that we can settle how Ceru feels about him being a hybrid.
>>30625757>> Go bug Goldie.I think Lilac's just got herself another friend.
>>30625757>> Lay down with Lilac for a nap
>>30625757> Go bug Goldie.CAN we bug goldie like this?With the 25 foot range?
>>30625790With Bruise, that makes two other acquaintances that Lilac can feel comfortable with.
>>30625757 > Lay down with Lilac for a nap.
>>30625757>> Lay down with Lilac for a nap.
>>30625757> Go bug Goldie.We haven't bugged him in a while.
>>30625757>[x] See how Bruise is doing.
>>3062580125 meters, imperial.
>>30625801His room is right next to ours, if you recall.
>>30625801Maybe just scream 'GOLDIE" real loudly in our heads maybe?
>>30625757> Lay down with Lilac for a nap
>>30625801it's 25 meters, so that roughly 75 feet
>>30625757 > Lay down with Lilac for a nap.
>>30625757We've gotta be tired after the long day. Let's take a nap.
>>30625757So Prof.Horizon Of Dark Clouds.Is this going to end with Ceru experiencing another prophetic dream?
>>30625757>> Go bug Goldie.
Is the pastebin going to be updated to say Octillery instead of Remoraid or will it just say Remoraid-evolved or something as seems to be the nomenclature of this setting?
We should ask Boss if we'll still be able to go on the mission and what his plans are for it. Like if she's okay will we be able to bring Lilac? Or if she is stable will she be released? Or put with another trainer so that she doesn't rely on us too much? I'd like to hear his thoughts. Cause Cerulean would not want to miss the mission.
>>30625905Oh, definitely. There's no immediate need to do so now, though. Just ask him the next time he calls for us. Maybe he'll even inform us on what will happen now that Lilac is officially enrolled in the Rockets?
>>30625905I'm doubting it will be an option, but it can't hurt to ask.
If the claws finally became retractable, does that mean it wasn't just the remoraids that evolved?
>>30625990No, no, it was just the remoraids that evolved, however, our crytten implants matured a little as well. It also interacted strangely with the remoraid implants' evolution, which causes the retractable barrel spikes on Ceru's palms.
>>30625990Not quite. We went through Crytten puberty, and our arms changed, the Remoraid implants in our arms are playing nice with the Crytten stuff so they made it retractable so that our arm fit together better. PokeSCIENCE is pretty nice.
>>30625905I'd say insane friends take priority.
>>30626036It's the M-virus' work, I suppose. MUTATION.
>>30626053She'll be fine, she'll probably be coming with us.
With Lilac out for the count you slip into something more comfortable for bed-time and curl up beside her. You smile, happy that not only is Lilac free from the spire but also able to sleep next to you.It's just nice. It's just nice that she doesn't have to be unhappy anymore. So long as she keeps making friends she'll be freed from this program and eventually become a full fledged ranger and a Rocket at that. It must be dream come true, right?You drift off into the land of dreams with that thought in mind.Your dreams are mild, unlike some of the bad ones you've had in the past. You dream of hanging out with Sanna and Lilac again... running into Bruise and Devon. The two of them being angry and demanding that you pick one of them to kiss, but you can't quite choose.Oh no. this must be a nightmare. You can't pick one or the other...You awaken to an intercom.“Will all water-type rangers on staff, please refer to their index now. Will all water-type rangers on staff, please refer to their index now.” The message continues to repeat and you're dimly aware as you rub away at your sleepy eyes that you still count as one, right?>”EMERGENCY CALL TO ALL AQUATIC RANGERS”>The recent storm raging outside of the dome has turned into a maelstrom out at sea.

>>30626100thanks for running prof
>>30626100>But what about Lilac?Have Sanna zonk her good before we go? Hand off the zapper to Bruise or someone? I dunno.
>>30626100Sanna can babysit. we got lives and or product to save!
let's cut to the chase.Sedating lilac so we can go on this emergency mission.I say we do it.
>>30626100Heh. Cerulean unconsciously thinks Bruise and Devon like her.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/30617347/Archived, Prof. This was a pleasant respite to prepare us for our next mission. See you next time.
>>30626100Crap, Sanna is technically an aquatic ranger,right?Guess it's up to Bruise?
>>30626147Sanna is a water type too
>>30626147Sanna has a staryu implant. She's expected to go on the emergency mission as well.
>>30626100This has to be one of your weirder threads, Professor. And I had a blast with it because of that.You seem to have an odd sort of run when you play Lilac. If that's true, it comes through well. I like enjoying fun times with our friends heh.Good thread.Also>Ocean mission>Ocean>Storm>Dark>Deep WaterNOFUCKNOOOOOOOOOI WILL NOT GET EAT BY SHARPEDOFUCK YOU PROFESSOR FUCK YOOOOOOOUBut seriously that's on my mind.
>>30626155A water-type Ranger, yes. I don't think she has gills, but since her vines absorb water, she'll be able to survive long enough underwater.After the last mission, Sanna gets a chance to prove herself again. And it'll be nice to see Aqua and Marine again. This might be the first time we'll get to work with them too!
I look forward so greatly to this emergency mission.Rescuing people is what it is all a-fucking-bout.
>>30626100>demanding that you pick one of them to kiss, but you can't quite choose.>no Goldie kissu option 0/10
>>30626100Estimation on the next thread or are we gonna have to wait for Friday to find out? If we do, God strike me down now.
>>30626155>>30626163>>30626167She is more grass than water. She cannot swim like an aquatic ranger so sending her out would be stupid. Use your brains.
>>30626182She's just as much of an aquatic ranger as Aqua is.
>>30626182She still counts as water.
So we give the shocker to Sanna.
>>30626182It said all water types, and Staryu must be able to survive underwater somehow.
>>30626100Didn't you imply something horrible happened to Hoenn?
>>30626100Thanks for running, and Lilac is adorably creepy. Looking forward to Overhuman.We actually are going to use our gills, haven't done that on a mission in a while. And we get to save people, they might even thank us. Ice could be useful in this, we could seal leaks in the ship by freezing them over to buy civvies more time. We get to be a hero! And hopefully someone can take care of Lilac in the meanwhile.
>>30626177Don't fear anon. It's okay. I picture those two boys are the 'jocks' of the Ranger world. Goldie's the reliable friend you don't consider until years later.It's a long road. But I have faith.Besides. Goldie has yet to call us pretty like Bruise, or save our lives like Devon. He's gotta make an impression
>>30626100I fuckin love Lilac. She's brilliant.
>>30626193>>30626197She doesn't have gills or fins or underwater eyelids. Sending her out to sea would be suicide, they aren't that stupid. Her water grafts are for regen only.
>>30626217>Using ice to seal breeches in a shipIf Titanic taught me anything, its that that is a terrible idea.Ice makes things brittle as fuck. Especially underwater. Easier to crack when it's cold.
>>30626205That's because Staryus don't have lungs. Sanna does. She would die in a heartbeat in the open sea.
>The XP we decided to spend weeks ago will do nothing for this mission.
>>30626211Their Legendaries woke up.
>>30626250We haven't really invested in aquatic combat, have we?
>>30626250Hey man. You know how it is.Training time and all that.
>>30626254Yeah but it looks like not everyone is dead, if there are still ships going back and forth.
>>30626220That I agree 100% with.
>>30626180Sunday 20:00 should be next time.>>30626211Implications are abound. Hoenn is my favorite region.>>30626169I've got a list of regional water beasties at the ready. The ocean is dark and full of terrors.>>30626232There's underwater 3p gear for a reason. Yeah, Sanna's going to be on this mission too.>>30626220>>30626217I only wish to maximize her ador-creep levels. I believe I have experience with that subject.>>30626263It'll stack with Rocket-ness.
Professor if you name the next thread Open Water I SWEAR TO GOD
>>30626250We have Psybeam now, at least. So if we meet any underwater predators...well, it's not strong enough to be useful yet, but it might help if we use it in combination with another move. Use one hand to fire a beam and the other an ice shot.
>>30626254Kinda surprises me that Rayquaza didn't work with their Elite 4 to calm down Kyogre and Groundon. Mighta had something to do with the Regis or the event legendaries if those are a thing.
>>30626296>Open WaterThat movie or something? Because it sounds like a movie.Because it sounds like a movie that explains my reasons for living inland. And in a desert at that.
>>30626294>I only wish to maximize her ador-creep levels. I believe I have experience with that subject.Oh Alice. Such a good little sister she was. And Kralle was adorable too. I had imagined that she would have gathered her own flock of butterflies made by Faefnir if the adventure had continued properly. Might you consider that for that epilogue you're planning to write?
>>30626300I can imagine Psybeam being a boon against all the tentacool we'll face in the ocean.
>>30626317So how will Ceru go to the mission? Will Giovanni take care of her? Will she be put into the hospital again?
>>30626294Hm. Well a list for our gear on our next mission:>AntidoteFor Tentacool/cruel>Paralysis HealBecause Chouchou. Even if it's rare, paralysis is death in deep water.>BidentWe still have that skill, don't we? Now would be a good time...As a side note-does our Crytten darkvision work underwater? I don't think waving a bright light around underwater is a good idea, but I'd like to be able to see too.
>>30626327>flock of butterfliesAll the friends she makes, right?
>>30626294It makes sense to have some Johto water monsters as well, considering its close proximity to Kanto and lack of borders.
>>30626345>antidote>paralysis healMaybe an >awakenToo, in case we get sleepy.And I look forward to bident stabbin'
I can't remember, did we vote to level up Icy Wind?Cause I think it might be good enough to freeze the ocean water instead of just making is slushy if we upgraded it to rank 5+1.
You know what would be really useful right now, Bullet Seed, and we really ought to bring our bident for this to zap other Water types.I'm not overly worried about Tentacools, even if we get poisoned Hydration can help, though we should still bring Antidotes and other supplies.
>>30626317It is, and gives an excellent reason to live in the desert...but...Cacturn are why I don't live in the desert.Open Water was basically about being abandoned in the middle of the ocean, and left to get eaten by sharks or what have you or starve. Pretty bad movie also, but still, creepy premise.
>>30626294You run a great quest but you theoretical military protocol is terrible. Sending Sanna is like sending a regular Grass type ranger. Because not having gills and fins and all that shit puts her at a serious disadvantage compared to other rangers and the mons.
>>30626294So is your explanation for the Human-Shape pokemon that they really WERE once human, long ago in the distant past? But for some reason mutated into the monstrous forms they have now?
>>30626370Staryu implant. Aqua had one, and he does fine as a water-focused ranger.
>>30626360>Set 2: (Costs 10 skill points)>Icy Wind (5) - 4 skill points>Rest (4) - 3 skill points>Quick Attack (2) - 2 skill points>Psybeam (1) - 1 skill pointThis is what we got. We've only managed to train Psybeam for now.>>30626317Prof, could you update the pastebin so that Psybeam's been added there?
>>30626385Aqua took the whole thing. Sanna only took the Gems.
>>30626315>Be a monster hunter>See big as fuck dragon descend from sky.>Earth is torn asunder.>The Ocean is raging like monsoon season.>Assume good things.One of these things is not like the other.>>30626379Yep.>>30626370They have rebreathers and such. I recall in the anime they had little things that allowed them all to just chill underwater for an episode.>>30626393>update the pastebin so that Psybeam's been added there?Did that a couple hours ago.
>>30626370That's what the 3P gear for underwater missions is supposed to help out on.
>>30626397No, they both got the same package from it. Aqua got the gem stuck in him and it made the golden staryu metallic stuff go all through his skin. Sanna has the same deal with the metal stuff.
>>30626412>Human like were once human...w....wait...Fuck I can't process this...damn it man
>>30626412>I recall in the anime they had little things that allowed them all to just chill underwater for an episode.Ancient technology lost to the far-flung past.
>>30626412>>The Ocean is raging like monsoon season.That one. Rayquaza's ability cancels all weather.
>>30626263>Aquatic Combat(2): Increases ability to fight within water, allowing +2 to within water rolls per rank.a +4 and the always there Rocket Training +2Fret not anon
>>30626412>rebreatherThey did. And we have them in real life now too. They basically mimic gills, I think. Only problem would getting it knocked out of your mouth for underwater combat.She should get a chain to attach it to her waist.
>>30626427M-virus>>30626412>I recall in the anime they had little things that allowed them all to just chill underwater for an episode.That mermaid one?
>>30626433Trust /tg/ to never forget the little things.
HAHA! TIME FOR AQUATIC MISSION!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bx6nOkdeNKs
>>30626433I guess Rayquaza just hasn't descended yet. I wonder if we'll see him in this mission.
>>30626433Ah, got me there. Still. Rayquaza fucks off into the outer stratosphere most of the time.Only coming down to sky tower to rest.>>30626445Yeah.>>30626440Noted. She's also grass type and therefor bears a natural advantage over most water types.
>>30626478Wasn't Rayquaza sentient?Or just neutral as all fuck, to the point he did what he did just to shut up Groudon and Kyogre so he could get some damn sleep?I think it's the second one
>>30626412...You... you do know what's in the Human-Like Egg Group right? Croagunk, Hawlucha, Buneary, motherfucking Cacnea? Not to mention Kanto's own Electabuzz and Magmar.
Will we finally see what that one point in aquabatics can do?Answer: Riverdancing. Oceandancing requires 2 more skill points.
>>30626484Actually, if Sanna can make sure she does NOT lose her rebreather, she is gonna be our most important asset this mission....Keep a Antidote and Paralysis heal handy. Seriously. Like, 5 or 10 or each.Yes I am paranoid, shut up.
Ok. On the 1 in a million odds that somehow Kyogre gets ganked by a passing Zapdos shitting lightning everywhere and we live... Do we take some of it and go for the implant?
>>30626484So we'll probably be seeing Marine and Aqua again for this mission. I forgot, but is Aqua trained for melee combat? He was at Vermillion, right? Does he know electric moves too?Underwater, our ranged attacks will be our best weapon. So we'd better leave CQC to those two if we're lucky enough to group with them. Marine is a Rocket, so we'll probably stick together.
>>30626484And to tell his little rage cousins to shut the fuck up so he could sleep. If I remember correctly that is what he created the Blue and Red orbs for.
>>30626508I am only replying because of how hard this made me laugh.Yes anon. Yes we will. We'll also carve up what's left and have a massive fish fry with Giovanni.
>>30626505She'll definitely keep a couple spares just in case.
>>30626484Just have the rebreather have a strap on it like it's a ball-gag Yeah, I know. Hahaha.Also, can you clarify on how Hydration would work for us? Status would clear up quickly while in water? Only outside combat? Takes more time when in combat?
>>30626508Why is that even a question? I'm pretty sure the entire dome would be getting Kyogre implants.
>>30626484How quick does Hydration take effect? Or is it more for stamina than Status Effects in this?
>>30626509>Aqua knows electric movesErm... I hope Surge taught him the very important lesson. Water conducts Electricity.Otherwise, he might accidentally our face off.
>>30626484except for the damn Tentacool.she should have natural cure, which might help with poisoning.how would it work in quest though?>Natural Cure heals any status ailments upon switching out.
>>30626493Actually yes. The implications only get worse from there.>How long did it take?>What are their cultures like?>How many ranger monsters stole their children in the past?>How hostile are they to non-mutant humans...Cacturn is the absolute worst in my book. The desert is devoid of life. We intend to keep it that way.
>>30626524I think he addressed this before in one of the earlier threads. I think we need to be resting properly.>>30626534Heh. Yeah. It'd be useful on board the ship, though, if it's been invaded.
>>30626509Aqua is trained to use his arms as bait and distractions.
>>30626509>>30626534He might be able to control it. Somehow.
>>30626484So are you still holding with Magikarp being ridiculously rare? Because I feel as if their extreme levels of ubiquity are an essential part of the pokemon world.It's not like it's hard to justify why there wouldn't be any Gyarados around, considering that everything eats them, and do you have any idea how hard it would be for a wild Magikarp to gain sufficient exp?
>>30626539I can only imagine what sort of monsters you're cooking up Professor.I love it.
>>30626555Oh no. Magikarp are common. they're just KoS for rangers.Because fuck motherfucking gyarados.Don't need a one to evolve into a serpentine avatar of destruction.
>>30626555Prof said that magikarps are rare because rangers go out of their way to kill them before they evolve.
>>30626555I imagine the magicarp breed like crazy, but they only survive in areas around Gyarados that protect them. The ones who leave/wander away die almost instantly.
>>30626539How does that work with the Tyrogue evolutions who are all male? Also Jynx, which is only female?
>>30626586steal people from other tribes for breeding stock
>>30626539Now does that mean that monsters who aren't in the human-like egg group can't be sapient and have their own cultures and shit?
>>30626598Well yeah, that works for Jynx. But not the Hitmons. You know how it is with poke-breeding.
>>30626555I think it might be because they're also hunted by humans on top of things. How I figure the first Magikarp Ranger went:>Man this implant sucks>Haha, you suck Tim>Yeah Tim you got the shittiest implant>Damn it you guys, I know, stop!>Continued torment and mocking>For a year, the guy struggles through missions.>Giovanni marking that the thing is useless as a ranger. About to ask him if he wants to exchange it>Tim at home>Glaring into a mirror>Teeth get sharper>Rapid breaths>Suddenly, Dragon Rage.After that, Giovanni had to carefully implicate that it was a monster-caused twister, and carefully covers up the group of Rangers he killed on his way out of his house.Magikarp were kill on sight ever since.
>>30626580Prof, our Premature Freezer Array adds a +1 rank to all our Ice skills. How those this affect our Icicle Gun? It's a variant of a water move, but it's technically an Ice move too.
>>30626618I believe he said that leveling both Water Gun and Ice Shards makes Icicle Gun better, so the freezer array should improve it somewhat.
>>30626580I assume that they're not a priority for this mission, and that rangers are just supposed to ignore any Magikarp they see until the rescue is completed?
>>30626549pokeSCIENCE!>>30626561I have at least three human-shape pokemon OC.>>30626586Either not male exclusive or the chance for male or female isn't solely dependent on the female.Honestly leaning on the former here.>>30626599As I recall Volbeat and Illumise are in human-like.In any case that's pretty much so.>>30626618adds +1.but its rank is based on Water gun and ice shards averaged out before freezer array modifier. Need to adjust that though with the evolution.>>30626611Gonna call this pretty much how it happened.
>>30626638KoS is basically cleanup when not in an objective area or without preexisting priority conditions.
>>30626643>Need to adjust that though with the evolution.Whatchya mean?
>>30626643So what horrible things does this mean for the Ralts family?
>>30626643ProfSanna probably has Natural Cure Ability? I'm just curious how it works in quest since in game>Natural Cure heals any status ailments upon switching out.
>>30626638In our Veridian Wood test, we went out of our way to destroy a beedrill nest. I think it's assumed that, unless we have a different immediate priority, we should try to perform our duty whenever we can.>>30626643>Need to adjust that though with the evolution.What do you mean by this? Did the evolution give us a similar bonus for water-type moves?
>>30626643>That spoiler>THAT SPOILERYou just can't help yourself, can you, Professor? The shadowruns run thick in your blood.Not that I mind. Long as we get to kill some nasty monsters along the way, and get kickass powers.
>>30626643>human-shape pokemon OC.Wendigos pls
What Crytten's abilities again?
>>30626643Speaking of evolution, what exactly did it do stats wise?
What kinda bonus will we be getting to our gun based attacks due to evolution? Does more damage? Better chance of hitting?
>>30626673>they mistake Ceru for one of their own>she wins their respect and is given a mate to copulate with, like Bruno did>brings home an egg
>>30626693>Mate>With a WindegoI-Im gonna be sick...
So how many of those human shaped OCs will be diplomancable?
>>30626659Please confirm the mechanics of Hydration before we requisition equipment, since it could greatly affect our item needs.
>>30626711That's an even bigger spoiler, anon.
>>30626661Ah, somehow forgot about that.You'll see when you get to Hoenn. You'll see.>>30626665>The shadowruns run thick in your blood.Speaking of that. Shadowruns are going to ramp up something fierce in Overhuman.>>30626687Alter some abilities and increase the range of learnable moves.I'm going to bed.>>30626711Not all Human-shapes even speak english. Git gud at some body language.
>>30626710Hey, they could be mermaids.
>>30626643>adds +1.>but its rank is based on Water gun and ice shards averaged out before freezer array modifier. Need to adjust that though with the evolution.Ok, so it actually counts as rank 4 now before whatever change you're planning. How does it work out in the case that it doesn't make whole numbers, like if we had rank 3 Ice Shard and rank 4 Water Gun?
>>30626643>Gyrados storyHuh. It's kinda funny. I picture Gyrados' whole reason for it's rage is years of feeling impotent as a Magikarp. Suddenly, it has all the power, and gets to take vengeance.I would still like to get a Karp implant, personally. I know we won't, but still. Gonna go water, why not get one of the best, right?
>>30626693>Wendigos>Having a societyI can only suspend my disbelief so much anon.
>>30626721>>30626693Are you stupid?
>>30626720>Hoenn trip confirmed!
>>30626721You have no idea what a wendigo is, do you?
>>30626720Dammit in want this answered >>30626690I wanna know how elite of a gunner we're going to be.
>>30626720>Alter some abilities and increase the range of learnable moves.Ah, I see. Gonna ask you to clarify on that when we have our next thread.G'night, Prof.
>>30626721>they could be mermaids.I've seen a lot of interpretations of wendigos, but none of them are ever like mermaids.They range between emaciated person with really long limbs and claws and big undead deer monster things.
>>30626730>>30626741>>30626751Who says they have to be wendingos? I fucking hate wendingos, the goatmen kind. But I'd be alright with ceru fucking a mermaid.
>>30626722Round up.>>30626690More Dakka>>30626755Octillery set.>>30626730>>30626751Society or not, they're smart.Also wendimaids weren't considered.. Cannibal icy fish people.. Huh. Nah.
>>30626779>Octillery set.Ah, I see, you just haven't changed the pastebin yet to reflect the changes.Sleep tight, Prof. Don't let the desert people stalk you in your slumber.
>>30626720>Not all Human-shapes even speak englishWe can't speak English.What, you think this is Unova?
>>30626779Awwwww. I like mermaids. I still wanna see some aquatic human like ones. Not now though.
>>30626793Ah.Inspiration for a fourth.Happy swimming.
>>30626804That is not encouraging in the slightest.
>>30626804You're literally the worst.Looking forward to next Thread. Sleep well, Professor.
>>30626804a new graft to get!you'd get the innsmouth look though....I hope Kygore gets the Cthulhu treatmentIA KYGORE FTHGAN!!!
>>30626855Oh man. A race of fish people that worship Kyogre.
>>30626871And a race of earth and fire golems for Groundon. And they're in an eternal war.
>>30626914>fire golemsYou mean Magmar?
>>30626914They trace their origins to the stars. Burning stars fell down from the sky and landed on our planet. They bled bright red light and they screamed in agony, for where before they lived and streaked across the blank, wide darkness of the sky, they were now earthbound and in a state between life and death.Their precious life force spread out amongst the land, blessing everything they touched with power. Man and beast alike transformed and attained power beyond what they could have ever been capable of, even if they had lived a million lifetimes and even if the sun around which their planet orbited around had died a thousand deaths.But the living stars were displeased with this. Their gifts were not meant for the lower races. So it was with great reluctance that they called the people of this planet to protect and hide their husks away. Not all responded, but those who did were given both the gift and the burden of knowing the truth of the cosmos. And thus, they were empowered to act as protectors for their masters. They were not enough, however. Strengthened that they may be, they were few in number and would not be able to repel all the invaders who would seek to further plunder the crippled flares. So mustering the last of their strength, they formed He Who Lurks Beneath The Mantle to act as their final guardian. It is said that the beast's very breath creates vast deserts and each movement, a new continent. Woe be it to any who would best the magmen for they would soon meet their ends within the hellish maw of GROUDON.
is it just me or are the conversations with Sanna and Lilac in this thread are really weird? I feel like i am readng a SoL/Comedy/High School manga starting from chapter 500... What the fuck?
>>30627103Sanna talks in shitspeak. Lilac is dangerously spooky and socially maladjusted as fuck. Of course it sounds weird.
I just realized that Dry is a really weird way of saying "salty" because salt is a desiccating agent....This does not bode well for Ceru's figure.
>>30627131Dry flavor is not Salty.
>>30627144Isn't it?Prof seemed to consider the fries to be dry, and it's the only one of the four basic tastes to not be found.
>>30627172You got it wrong. Yeah, Ceru picked Dry as her favorite flavor, but Spicy was the one she hates. The fries weren't Spicy, so they won by default.
>>30627172It's actually 5 tastes, you forgot umami. I think that one corresponds to dry better than salty does.
It's probably からくち, which translates to dry like for wine, which most people would correlate to bitter, but it also means salty. So That is evidence for pokemon's 'dry' meaning salty.
>>30627252Makes sense that it'd be salty.The other tastes translate to their own thing.Still.
>>30626804I'm too late, aren't I? I was about to ask if there are tribes of mostly human people who use pokemon bits to craft oversized weapons and armor to fight.You know. Monster Hunters.
>>30627252Checking the Japanese bulbapedia, it was using 渋味 for Dry.Then when I googled 渋味, I found the japanese wiki page and saw that it is used as the antonym for 甘い (sweet).Dry in pokemon is just the opposite of sweetness.
>>30627374But berries can be both sweet and dry.
>>30627374>渋味oh, it's astringent. Not something I usually think of as one of the primary flavors.
>>30627442Maybe it's limited to flavors that berries would actually have?But yeah, seems like we got the special snowflake flavor, given that barely anything has that taste.
>>30627410I can't think of a single fruit or berry that I would call salty. Am I just having a stupid moment and forgetting something obvious?
>>30627500No, there just aren't salty fruits. It makes sense, salt would interfere with the seeds germinating.
wait damn did anyone mention whether Ceru got Perception points for spotting the village?
I want muh Charm and Ingenuity points..
>>30627597+2 charm for aiding a hapless man.+1 charm for speaking with the unknown woman+0 (net) Tenacity for channeling a ghost.+3 Tenacity for Macho Brace training+1 Tenacity for continuing on with sleep deprivation.+2(net) Tenacity for discovery of a dead body.+3 Ingenuity from investigation+2 Ingenuity from battle-tactics+6 Perception from InvestigationFinding the village was probably part of the +6 Perception from Investigation.
>>30627626so our perception was just that bad, huh?
>>30627648It's because we started at 10 with all the other stats. Our perception started at 4, after we finished the Viridian Wood test.
>>30627619Ok, so I was sort of wrong. One plant in Australia makes salty edible flowers. Apparently, those things still purge their salt before the seeds germinate.
>>30627659Yeah, that makes sense, looking back at the start of the quest.....Ceru's really changed, huh?
>>30627668It's the fruit that is satly. The leaves are actually astringent. But yeah, it's an anomaly. Nature.
>>30627680she's significantly more elite now.Soon she will have confirmed killcounts.
>>30627693>Ceru>Killmurderboners pls go
>>30627706Come to think of it, we didn't kill anything in the Viridian Wood.So we DON'T have any confirmed kill counts yet at all.
>>30627706I think he means pokemon kills.
>>30627706anon, it's 100% certain well be killing monsters. I mean, one of the primary duties of rangers is going out and hunting for tasty shit for everyone.
>>30627719what about those chryssalis things?
>>30627729Please. I will not deign to enter an ergument about whether or not life begins at conception or at a specific development stage.
>>30627729We just chilled the area to make everything sluggish. Our teammates did the actual killing.Ceru would have been far better off with a Fairy implant maximum cute maximum diplomance build.
>>30627743but... those are AFTER they're weedles!
>>30627762And fetuses are after they're jizz. Your point?
>>306277521) fairy isn't a thing in this dome yet2) none of us knew what we were getting into possibly Ygg included
>>30627767weedles are -totally- alive!They're, like, caterpillars!
>>30627773Yeah, and some would say the same of sperm. Weedles definitely aren't living Beedrills though, are they?
>>30627769>1Even so, they would just think that the Fairy types were just normal types with potent calming/ charming abilities.>2That's actually a valid point. I thought there would be significantly more RIP AND TEAR AND SHOOT EM ALL than this.
>>30627773Pfft. Everyone knows that monsters disappear in a flash of light and a different one comes to replace them.Only humans can actually evolve.
>>30627773>implying caterpillars aren't sperm
>>30627788I expected much more monster hunter, with fights prioritizing preserving x body part while destroying the rest.
>>30627780>>30627803how... do caterpillars work? Out of curiosity? In your own words?
>>30627830We're just fucking with you, anon. Lighten up.
>>30627834I wanted a colorful explanation about caterpillars and eggs and nonsensical horrible insect insemination, anon
>>30627830When a mommy butterfly and a daddy butterfly love eachother very much the daddy butterfly slaps his buttercock against the mommy butterfly's ass and then blows catterpillars all over a tree.Then the birds eat his bugkakke off the tree. That's why they call it the circle of life.
