TIME FOR BUTTS AND POKEMANS
I've missed the 'mons Gobble. I couldn't make it last session!
Raistlin, your Alakazam, has chosen to battle you using Aria, your Meloetta.Levi stretches and prepares herself. She’s not putting on a shot to intimidate anyone, she’s just taking her opponent seriously and feels more comfortable doing something other than looking fierce.You stretch too. It feels natural with Levi doing it. You want to be in sync for this battle.Since Raistlin chose who he uses first, he offers you the choice of a battlefield.>The rocky area around the hill. It was a lot of cover and obstructions>The wide, open grassy area>The wooded, shady forest. It as a very shallow stream and a lot of bushes>Along the muddy edges of the river. There’s a small amount of shrubbery, but nothing you could hide behind>Let him choose>Something else
>>42154454>The wooded, shady forest. It as a very shallow stream and a lot of bushesSure.
>>42154454>The wooded, shady forest. It as a very shallow stream and a lot of bushes
>>42154454>The rocky area around the hill. It was a lot of cover and obstructions
So, do we have any kind of plan?
>>42154806But that's so predictable!
>>42154817fake cheating but really play fair
>>42154832Now we're talking.
>>42154454>Along the muddy edges of the river. There’s a small amount of shrubbery, but nothing you could hide behindI don't know, a Gyarados is really huge and Meloetta is really small. I'm not sure if hiding is feasible? But then I'm not sure anything about this is feasible
You lead him to the shady, forested area. Levi isn’t exactly the stealthy, subtle type, but neither is Aria.The tall trees mute the sunlight. Soft wind rustles the leaves and vines, making a consistent white noise.The thin stream tickles just out of your direct sight on your left. It’s only about one to two feet deep at most, and a few inches in other areas.Bushes and trees abound. Aria will have an easier time finding cover here, but she’s also not one to step out of sight, even in a battle.She doesn't seem too concerned about taking on Levi at all. Raistlin looks like he’s running a thousand calculations in his head.>Try to psyche Raistlin out. He’s smarter than you, but needs to learn opponents will get under your skin>Try to imply to Aria that she shouldn't listen to Raistlin. You need a psychological advantage>Say something to Levi to get him motivated>Wish everyone luck.>Something else
>>42154875>Say something to Levi to get him motivated>Wish everyone luck.It's a duel! She's got not one but TWO pokemon gunning for her here! Is she just gonna take that?
>>42154875>Try to psyche Raistlin out. He’s smarter than you, but needs to learn opponents will get under your skin
>>42154875that fucking image, jesus christ
>>42154875>say something to Levi to get him motivatedI though Levi was female though, gobble?
>>42154875>Try to psyche Raistlin out. He’s smarter than you, but needs to learn opponents will get under your skinwe NEED to win this battle pretty much, use every dirty trick in the book.
>>42154875>Try to psyche Raistlin out. He’s smarter than you, but needs to learn opponents will get under your skinMight as well.
>>42154875>Say something to Levi to get him motivated>himwe demand butts
>>42154936It's just Meloetta anon!
>>42154875>Wish everyone luck.
>>42154978Start the butt-chant with me!BUTTS! BUTTS! BUTTS!
>>42155026Gobble has been possessed by the chant and forgotten to post.
>>42155378We have only ourselves to blame, I suppose.
You lean on Levi. Her trust in you these days is very high She looks at you, not annoyed, but seriously listening to whatever you have to tell her. “Not that you need the advantage, but your mega form gives you a Dark typing.” You look to Raistlin and raise your voice “That means Raistlin can’t depend on reading your mind!”Raistlin raises an eyebrow. The implication that he’d need to do that looks like it got to him. He’s here to understand what makes you smart, after all. He’s had conversations with Clair about that sort of thing too. She preaches more than she practices, but still.Man, you miss Clair. She’d be saying something funny about this whole situation.You focus on Aria. She twirls, but looks frustrated. Nobody is paying attention to her. “Hey,” you tell her “good luck! I know it won’t be fun taking orders you know won’t work, but try to have fun anyway.”Aria laughs. She treats it as good natured ribbing.Raistlin looks at you suspiciously. he gives a very quick, awkward chuckle.With that, you go to your side of the battle area. There’s a large gust of wind and an odd coloured leaf begins to fall.You and Raistlin watch it. You agree to start as soon as it hits the ground.The leaf floats, dips, then drops to the forest floor.>Bounce over the tree line>Bite, rush her!>Dragon Rage, test their plan>Dragon Dance (Very skilled). Get pumped before you do anything>Waterfall, hit hard>Aqua Tail, give a slap>Hyper Beam, go all out without hesitation>Earthquake, she can’t avoid that behind any trees>Dark Pulse, super effective!>Outrage, unleash the dragonand>Mega evolve>Don’t mega

You hold off on mega-evolution right now. That’s your trump card. Right now you need to set the stage and the tone.“Dragon Dance! Let’s go!”Levi starts. She wants to mega-evolve and jump right in, but she listens and trusts your judgement.Your eyes shoot to Raistlin. His eyes are darting between you and Levi. He’s giving a telepathic order to Aria.You remember one fight you lost as a kid. You really wanted to win that one, but you just couldn't. You got up, you got hit. You took a swing, you got hit. You landed a punch, they grappled you and landed a dozen. It didn't matter that you had the drop on her. It didn't matter that you were faster and more clever. She was older and stronger.It was a tough lesson. There’s more than one factor when it comes to winning a fight. Smarts are just one of them.Levi finishes her dance. her tail slaps a rock as she stop. Just as she does, Aria rushes her and lays on a think Wake-Up Slap. It’s a powerful hit that knocks Levi back a foot.Levi slowly turns her head to look at Aria, murder in her eyes. She bares her teeth.Aria stops humming for a second. Only a second though. She goes back to it right after, angering Levi.You listen close. That was the Relic Song you've been working on with her. It’s not reliable yet, but she’s in tune.>Bite, now that she’s close!>Dragon Dance again!>Outrage! Be the dragon>Waterfall>Dark Pulse>Bounce up. Raistlin is planning something!>Earthquake!>Something else
>>42156288>Bite, now that she’s close!

>>42156540Why so late.Why.Dice-gods smile on Mega Evolving.
>>42156558I think we've handled this whole thing with Raistlin kind of poorly?
>>42156591Like the whole point was to synchro with him so we could Mega Evolve together, but I don't think this is helping matters.
>>42155520>>Dragon Dance (Very skilled). Get pumped before you do anything>Mega evolve
>>42156641minuscule bit late there
If we're not dead, next turn we mega and pray to god we can pull a crit on the dark pulse.
we should play the flute to distract AriaMega Evolve and let Levi do her stuff
>>42156763Hmmm...might not be the worst idea.
>>42156797I would do this but I don't have my images on this computer. So consider yourself lucky.
Aria twirls and spins. Whatever Raistlin told her to do, she likes it.“Bite, now!”Levi leaps at her and bites down Aria’s leg, stopping her in mid twirl.The lithe Meloetta freezes in surprise. For a split second you’re not sure if she’s going to cry or scream or what. She inhales sharply.Aria then screams a beautiful, but ear-splitting tune that blows away grass and wind and leaves. Levi holds on, doubling down. Her grip slips at the incredibly force of Aria’s attack and she goes flying backwards. You struggle to face her and have to cover most of your face.Levi rights herself, but Aria continues unleashing Relic Song on her. Levi slips back again and comes crashing down into the bushes. You see her eyelids start to drip down as she falls asleep.You turn to Aria. She’s changed forms now.Levi stirs in her sleep. She huffs loudly. She still has some fight in her, even in her dreams.Raistlin looks surprised. He must not have thought there’d be a transformation.>Stop the match, congratulate Aria>Distract Aria and Raistlin. Levi will wake up and want to keep fighting>”It’s not over yet! Don’t get cocky!”>Congratulate Raistlin. Cede the fight.>Something else
>>42156845I feel like a solider without hid weapon right now.
>>42156871>>Distract Aria and Raistlin. Levi will wake up and want to keep fightingplay the flute
>>42156871>Encourage the Gyarados to get back upUse our mental link thing that we use to mega evolve to get into Levi's head and wake her up from the inside
>>42156871>Distract Aria and Raistlin. Levi will wake up and want to keep fightingCongratulations after.
our pokemon are better trainers than we are
>>42156871Distract Raistlin and Meloetta BY congratulating them?
>>42156871>Distract Aria and Raistlin. Levi will wake up and want to keep fighting
>>42156871>Something else>Compliment Aria on her singing/dancing, and keep doing so to keep Aria distracted until Levi wakes up.
>>42156931It's not over yet!
>>42156964>>42156897using flute during battles is straight up cheating.
>>42156897Playing the flute isn't allowed in matches I don't think.
>>42156971>>42156897>>42156905>>42156933I like these. Moletta will be distracted by the flute and ignore Raistlins commands. Givin time for Levi to wake up. Then we Mega and immediately Dark pulse.
>>42156998No fucking playing the flute.
>>42156998She is fighting type nowBounce would be the better attack
>>42156997>>42156996This isn;t a league match, Anything can happen.Plus held items can be simulated anyway. We'll be facing tons of crazy shit in the Tournament. Gotta bring all we got.
>>42156998using outside items during battle is against league rules.
>>42157018Also if we use Bounce we'd be better off not Megaing because of STAB right?
>>42156871Play flute whilst attempting to wake Leviathan up via our newly formed Mega link thingy. She's super agressive and was pumped for the fight that should help her wake up.Gotta be crafty.
>>42157040yes, plus we don't want her to get a STAB close combat on our sorry dark type ass.
>>42156871Yeah distract them through flattery, but don't use the flute.
>>42157056We're emphasizing being crafty and clever over straight 10000 iq.Static thinking like that will make us lose.
>>42157066>>42157040>>42157018fair enough.Though after the Bounce I suggest Megaing to protect against her seriously op psychic attacks. Which are still op in her fighting form.
>>42157092That's why we try and praise and distract them.
>>42157092Cheating is cheating, distract Aria without completely disregarding league rules.
>>42156871Don't play the flute.
>>42157150using outside items during battle is against league rules, this has been established since the first gym.
Do you fuckers think you're playing a bard? Stop going for "HERP DERP I PLAY DA FLUTE" every goddamn time.
>>42156871Make a passing congratulations to Aria and call out to Levi.Wake up Slap is going to be a bitch...
>>42157130It'll teach raistlin to expect the unexpected. He can't always rely on knowing what's going to happen/the opponents options.plus it's not like we always fight in league rules matches.
[Seems divided a bit in terms of using the flute. Let's do a 5 minute, quote only vote. Remember, only exact votes count.]>play>don't play
so much for the divide.
>>42157219Gobble using the Flute is against long established rules, grow a spine and don't let the "PLAI DA FLUTE GUIZ" walk all over you.>don't play
Nice samefagging, flutehaters.
>>42157343look at the time that they're posted, idiot. There's not enough gap for the most part.
>>42157343When do we split into pro-flute and anti-flute factions and start gang-fights?
>>42157343I was both of the play votes. Quit trying to stir up shit.Oddly I wasn't all of the play votes earlier
>>42157388That's exactly what a dirty anti-flute faggot would say, just to slander us flute players.
Damn, I gotta sleep at the worst time. Don't lose to Raistlin anons!
>>42157663Understood. We'll make sure it's all fun and games until someone else loses an eye.
I was the first to suggest the fluteI voted don't play
>>42157698"It's ok Kat I know you didn't mean for this to happen.... Again"
Get up!You don’t really have any psychic powers or way to communicate with Levi, but you've noticed that the closer you are to mega-evolution, the more you seem to pick up on what the other is thinking. Like some sort of subconscious body language or intuition.You stay planted, but shout to Aria. “Way to go! You did it!”She spins vainly. Her new form seems more agile, more physical. She looks incredibly proud of herself. She leaps and dances.Raistlin is thinking hard. He’s doing his best to make sense of what this new form means.“I want you to remember a lesson, Raistlin,” you shout to him. “The unexpected can always happen. I bet you never calculated Aria would transform like that, did you?”He looks way from his thoughts and towards you. He nods. He did not calculate that at all. He was going to a powerful move he could use from a distance.Get up! You try to emanate an aura of energy and strength.Levi stirs. Is he waking up? It feels like he is, but it might just be an intense dream.>Levi! Bite now!>Dark Pulse!>Keep stalling>Bounce!>Retreat back into the forest and Dragon Dance again!>Let Raistlin have the win.

>>42158004doesn't work like that.
>>42158023Thankfully. Straight opposed rolls make for stupidly swinging results.
>>42158023I mean it does when it's a legendary pokemon? If that means that Aria got to move first, I'm not sure Leviathan can take another hit.
>>42157968Why the fuck does he keep getting such good rolls.
>>42158069Still don't think Aria thinks the fight is still going on.
You don’t even have to say it, you just command it with your body language and a grunt.Levi’s eyes shoot open and she gets ready to bounce.Right before she takes off, Raistlin and Meloetta immediately move into action. They must have picked up a stray thought, or maybe they’re just fast enough or perceptive enough to notice.Aria zooms at Levi with a Quick Attack. She hits her dead on and gracefully flips back to recover.Levi crashes back into a tree, but keeps going and bounces high above the treeline. Everyone loses sight of her.But you can feel she doesn’t have a lot left. She can’t take another solid blow. In fact, you know she’s pushing a little too hard already. There’s a pause. Levi is going to come down, but with the heavy forest canopy nobody is sure where.>Push to mega evolve>Try to distract Raistlin and Aria>Call the fight. Leviathan is pushing too hard and it’s not worth it>Call out Aria’s position for Levi to help her accuracy>Something else
>>42158341Have Levi use Earthquake as she comes back down
>>42158341>>Call out Aria’s position for Levi to help her accuracyThis is about Levi

>>42158398>>42158341Is this feasible gobble?Bounce + Earthquake?Can we roll for it at least?
>>42158341>Call out Aria’s position for Levi to help her accuracyIf we back down, we lose Raistlin's respect on top of Levi's, so that's not a good idea.
>>42158341>>42158398Do this if possible, if not then call out aria's position.
>>42158341>Call out Aria’s position for Levi to help her accuracy
>>42158341>Push to mega evolve
>>42158398>>42158341Can we at least try Gobble?Would be a fucking great combo move to pull out in the Tourny. And Bounce is a move she's known since birth so it's not unreasonable. Plus the moves synergize well.
>>42158341Seconding >>42158398 if possible,If not;>Call out Aria’s position for Levi to help her accuracy
>>42158465That makes the attack weaker.
>>42158491how? I thought bounce was a normal move
>>42158466Wouldn't Earthquake be less effective than Bounce in terms of super effective damage.
>>42158398>>42158341Seconding. Gotta go for the longshot.If it works no doubt they'll both be surprised about it, so we'll have to immediately follow up with another move. What should it be?
>>42158522OutrageGo for broke
>>42158514Flying.>>42158521I assume it would be both. Doing extra some extra damage.

Did anyone else get chills from our Megaevolution scene with Levi?
>>42158660Some where high in the clouds Levi had a revelation.She was a dragon of the sky and sea, if she conquered earth she would be invincible.And so she descended
>>42158728Hope it is enough. >>42158749>muh skillIt was a pretty nifty idea tbh.
>>42158660Alright so, while I did roll pretty good, in hindsight is it really a good idea to use Earthquake when we're surrounded by trees? Trees who have roots in the earth that we'll be quaking?
>>42158985Tree roots that will support each other and keep each other from falling.A lone tree is a worry in an earthquake. A forest is fine.
Levi always makes for great fucking fights.
There’s a moment of silence between Aria humming, Raistlin grunting something while he thinks, and the wind stopping for just a split second.A sudden beam of light shines down on Aria. She looks a beautiful dancer under a spotlight.But the light is from Levi coming through the trees. She smashes down on Aria with incredibly strength. The small Meloetta is sent deep into the ground. Earth crushes around her, inflicting even more damage. Trees bend and shift slightly as their ground moves in the surrounding area. The shockwave even reaches as far as the stream and sends a jet of water into the air.If you were an outside observer, you’d be terrified at the brutality of it all. But you know your Pokemon. Meloetta is unreasonably strong.Levi pants. She’s exhausted, with very little left in her.Aria fails to retaliate. She’s been paralyzed and damaged more than she ever expected too. She manages to struggle out of hole in the ground.Raistlin’s eyes glow. Aria turns around and makes a noise that you’re sure translates to something inappropriate and rude.Being paralysed, Aria is at a disadvantage, even if she’s looking like she’s slightly better shape that Levi. Of course, a successful Quick Attack will to take Levi out at this point.Levi growls to try to shrug it off. You can feel her need to win. Not because she wants to dominate, but because she’s the type of Pokemon that has to go all or nothing. Even as a Magikarp, you bet she always went all out. That’s probably a major reason she became a Gyarados in the wild when so many Magikarp don’t.Aria shakes herself and takes a fighting position.>Waterfall>Earthquake>Hyper Beam!

Rolled 49 (1d100)[Oops. Forgot the roll]
>>42159534That's Levi's second 100 fight in a row.
>>42159540Then we might as well.
>>42159534>Aria: Mercy?>Levi: DOES THIS LOOK LIKE THE FACE OF MERCY TO YOU?
A 100 Hyper Beam from a Mega Evolved Gyarados With improved Dragon Dance on.Dear Lord. Probably the strongest attack we'll get the entire quest.
I don't know if any pokemn could take this attack and survive. Even at full health.
>>42159628Hyper Beam doesn't get a boost from Dragon Dance and is actually probably one of our weakest attacks because it is Normal Type. Waterfall and Bounce are BY FAR our higheset damaging moves even without Dragon Dance; with it they're insane.
The Improved Dragon Dance and the Mega make us far outstrip her Speed.And then we crit
Okay so we PROBABLY won this. But even so, what did we learn from this? What lesson are both us and Raistlin meant to take away that will deepen our bond? Like what did we have beyond a generous QM and an RNG that decided to stop being a dick for several turns?
>>42159783being super smart and using great logic and strategies doesn't win battlesdice do
>>42159783Shit ain't over till it's over.We nearly 100 to 0ed her in 2 turns with the Bounce Earthquake + Hyperbeam.Never let up our count the battle over. Don't be overconfident. Save your moves for the exact right time.
>>42159841Okay let me rephrase, what are we gonna pretend we learned from this and hopes Raistlin buys it?
>>42159865While true, was that a lesson he needed learning? Like why should he go back to listening to us?
>>42159867Just cause you appear the favorite doesn't mean you are going to win.Levi just soloed a legendary.
>>42159867Battling is fun. The one who has the most fun will always win. Even if they lose!
>>42159867Smarts alone don't win battlesIt also takes HUGE GUTS
Any chance we could fire it over her head? No need for anyone to get hurt, but we all know what the result will be, and rastalin should get the message
>>42159903>>42159895I was thinking more some bullshit about how trainer and pokemon while in harmony form kind of a feedback loop, the pokemon fights harder because the trainer believes in them, and the trainer also does their best for the pokemon, to validate the trust the pokemon places in them. Just something like that and hope Raistlin doesn't analyze it too closely.
>>42159888It was clear he chose the most logical choices and best moves for the moment. But we used the creativity or Bounce and Earthquake. Used the bond with Megaevolution.Basically saying pure logic worn't work. You need to be able to react to diffuclut situations with new and unique counters rather than just "x is super effective" "y is faster"Static logic isn't something that makes a champ.
>>42159951Probably that too.There's a lot to be learned from this.
>>42159961So. Numbers will only get you so far.
>>42159961>new and unique counters rather than just "x is super effective" "y is faster"Pretty good. Something we as players have had to learn as well.
>>42160028We've been doing pretty good with it.Hence the Bounce + Earthquake.Still room to improve through.
>>42160059Just thinking back to early threads, before we got that this is a unique system compared to using straight stats from the game.
>>42160086Much better this way.
>>42159258Have there ever been any pokemon to act like trainers and use other pokemon to battle? Like win Gym badges or enter the Tourny?
Aria and Raistlin bicker about something.“Hyper Beam!”Aria disregards Raistlin and moves into action. She charges forward. Just as Levi aims her attack, she spins to avoid it.But Levi saw that coming. She nails her dead on.Despite the incredible power, Aria tries to push through. She no longer has any hope of avoid it. She’s mimicking how Levi reacted before. Her pride is at stake here. If Levi can at least try to hold on when facing her Relic Song, then Aria, a legendary muse that inspires people all around the world, can do it too!But she can’t. Aria is blown away from the sheer power. She goes flying back and crashes into the brush. She slumps onto the ground, unable to fight.Raistlin stands in awe. He can’t believe what he just saw.Levi smiles and rolls onto her side, exhausted and satisfied. She looks happy. Not dominant or needing to prove anything. She went all out because she wanted to go all out. Not to just win.Aria is still out of it. You tend to her. She’s fine, but not able to fight or do much else right now.Raistlin looks confused. He’s trying to figure out the calculation here. He made every logical move and all that happened was that Aria got upset with him.>Winning means trying your best and having fun>Smarts alone doesn’t win a battle. It takes guts and trust and creativity>Sometimes it’s just about luck. Life isn’t fair>Tell him you’re sure he’ll find his own answer>Write in
>>42160114>Smarts alone doesn’t win a battle. It takes guts and trust and creativityNot just a numbers game, I'm afraid.
>>42160110[Nothing Kat is aware of, except for a comedy skit on television once. But that probably doesn't count]
>>42160114>>Smarts alone doesn’t win a battle. It takes guts and trust and creativity
>>42160114>Smarts alone doesn't win a battle. It takes guts and trust and creativity.You can't just logic your way through life.
>>42160114>Smarts alone doesn’t win a battle. It takes guts and trust and creativityThough make sure he understands that smarts is still -pretty- important.
>>42160114>>Winning means trying your best and having fun>>Smarts alone doesn’t win a battle. It takes guts and trust and creativity
>>42160114>Winning means trying your best and having fun"But that only what it means to me. I want you and everyone else to have fun but that doesn't mean I'm right. Its something you have to figure out for your self. But not alone. Because I'm here and will always support you, no matter what answer you find!"
>>42160114Tell him that we honestly aren't quite sure of the answer ourselves, and he might need to check with Levi for confirmation, but the point of the bond is so the pokemon can concentrate on doing their best in the moment while having their confidence bolstered by their trainer? Aria in particular, while not insecure, really likes being praised.
>>42160114Kind of like >>42160246
>>42160114going to agree with >>42160246in that 'winning' means different things to different people and poke's...
“To tell the truth, I don’t know exactly what the right answer is. I know what my answer is though.” You put a hand on Raistlin’s shoulder. As smart as he is, you never forget that he’s still a Pokemon that looks to you for guidance and support, just like the others.“Smarts alone doesn't win a battle. It takes guts, trust, and creativity.” You smile down at him. “But really winning just means trying your best and having fun.” His eyes meet yours. "But that only what it means to me. I want you and everyone else to have fun but that doesn't mean I'm right. It’s something you have to figure out for your self. But not alone. Because I'm here and will always support you, no matter what answer you find!" You feel like you sound like an after school special, but it’s genuine.Levi grunts happily. She’s still laying on her side, drained but satisfied.Robin and Vernon come rushing over. “What happened?”You turn to them. “What do you mean?”Vernon laughs. “I thought you and Robin here were fightan’. Maybe practice...or a lover’s quarrel.”Robin blushes and stomps her feet. “I-I-I...We wouldn't drag our Pokemon into a fight!”“Good,” he leans on his cane. “Anger don’t belong in a fight that’s worth having.”You don’t know if that’s wisdom or baloney. “So, what’s all this?” He gestures to Aria, Levi, Raistlin, and the surrounding area. “This was a real battle. What kind of training is that?”>Woah! You don’t need this judgement. What’s this about?>Explain your reasoning. He just needs context>Screw you!>Oh relax. It was just a battle. It's what we train for>Something else
>>42160507>>Explain your reasoning. He just needs contextWell, Raistlin's reasoning, at any rate.
>>42160507>Explain your reasoning. He just needs context
>>42160507>>Explain your reasoning. He just needs context
>>42160507>>Explain your reasoning. He just needs contextAlso how is that not training?
>>42160507>Explain your reasoning. He just needs context"Raistlin asked me a fair question, so I gave him the best answer I could. You have your way of teaching, I have mine."
>>42160507>Explain your reasoning. He just needs context"Raistlin asked a compelling question, and I couldn't think of an answer. And yes, in hindsight it occurs to me that lots of other trainers have had Alakazams and they might have gone through something similar which I could have researched, but I feel like the answer had to have come from me, and I very nearly gave him one."
>>42160615I thought of this last thread, that Alakazams while not all exactly the same, tend to be more intelligent than humans. And yet they still at least seem to follow their trainers, logically there must be a reason for that, even if it isn't apparant.
"Raistlin asked me a fair question, so I gave him the best answer I could. You have your way of teaching, I have mine." You explain about Raistlin’s inquiry.“Sorry. Sorry.” he backs off. “I... You’re right. Ain’t nothing wrong with your training. I just see a trainer and passed out Pokemon and assume the worst.” He sighs. “Just what they call projectin’, I guess.”You know you don’t mention it much, but the million small tips he’s given you have made your training go a lot smoother than normal. A thousand little things like the best stances for each Pokemon to use each move, how to see how a Pokemon is doing, and other things like that.There’s an awkward silence until Robin breaks it. “So. Dinner should be ready.”Robin walks beside you as you head back to the cabin. She bumbps your hips with her own. “I have a weird question.”You bump her back. “What’s up?”“Am I cheating? If I use my eye. I can see things. More things than regular people. I can see through fog and smoke and Double Team. I checked in the rules and they don’t have any problems with it, but it still feels unfair.”>It’s fine. Other people have their own advantages>If she feels it’s unfair, she shouldn't use it>She owes it to herself and her Pokemon to use every advantage if it’s legal.>You can’t answer that>Something else
>>42160907>>It’s fine. Other people have their own advantages>>If she feels it’s unfair, she shouldn't use it"Really, dear, it's all about how you feel about it. Personally, though, I'm fine with it."
>>42160907>>It’s fine. Other people have their own advantages
>>42160907>>It’s fine. Other people have their own advantages>>She owes it to herself and her Pokemon to use every advantage if it’s legal.
>>42160907>It’s fine. Other people have their own advantages>If she feels it’s unfair, she shouldn't use itClair has her esp, I have my mega, Jeanne has her aura reading, etc.
>>42160907>It's fine. Other people have their own advantages.Also, what about Psychics? Those are fair game and this trick is a lot weaker than that.
>>42160907Just don't become reliant on it, and no lasers.
>>42160907"I mean, I'd use it if I had it, considering why you need it, and all we went through to get it, I consider it a fair trade."also can we ask Vernon his opinion with Raistlin?
>>42160993Pretty much this.
>>42160907>It's fine. Other people have their own advantages"Myself, Geno, and possibly several other trainers at the League will be using legendary Pokémon, so I don't think that your eye will be much of a problem."
>>42160907The trainer is just as much a part of the battle as the pokemon. and it would be foolish for a pokemon not to use a unique thing they posses.Just look at trunks' Reflect barriers.
>>42160907>You can’t answer that"How would you feel if you lost a match you could have won because you pretended you couldn't see like you are able to? And how would you feel if you won against someone who had your number just because you had that single advantage? Which would you hate more?"
>>42161078Yeah that is what it boils down to.
“It’s fine. Other people have their own advantages. Clair has her ESP, I have my mega evolution, Jeanine has aura reading, and there are going to be people at the least using legendaries.”She looks away shyly. “I guess, but those are all things you've worked on. Even if Clair was born with a gift, she had to practice to use it.”“So do you. That information you get is only as good as how you use it.” You think about how well she handled losing her eye in the first place. “You earned it.”You freeze, realizing what you said.“Wait, no! That’s not what I meant! You didn't deserve what happened, but you earned your new eye. I mean, really, you earned way more than that.”Mercifully, she laughs as you stammer over your words.You kiss her forehead. “A trainer is just as much a part of the battle as the Pokemon, and it would be foolish for a Pokemon not to use a unique thing they posses.”“So you’d use it?”“I would, but it’s your choice. How would you feel if you lost a match you could have won because you pretended you couldn't see like you are able to? And how would you feel if you won against someone who had your number just because you had that single advantage? Which would you hate more?"She smiles and her eye flashes a little heart. “You always know what to say.”Vernon groans as he opens the door. “Alright girls. Tomorrow’s a big day. I have a special training test for ya. After dinner, you should get some rest.”Robin leans close and whispers into your ear. “Maybe we could not rest and say we did instead?” You haven’t really gotten frisky lately with the hard training. That sounds nice.“I'm old, not deaf,” Vernon mutters as he walks by.Robin’s face turns your favourite colour of red.[That’s all for tonight. Possible thread Sunday if I can help it. As always, thanks for coming!]
>>42161291Was a great thread
>>42161291Robin a best
>>42161291Thanks for running, really had fun.
>>42161291good luck with the Kat X Robin's mom smut binjust have Robin's mom legit dom Kat and Kat ends up loving it
>>42161315>>42161328>>42161330[Thanks!]>>42161331[Haha yeah. Been having a little writers block on it, but I think I have some traction going finally]
>>42161331>>42161363Maybe it can all be some sick and twisted wet dream Robin has? I think that was suggested at some point.
>>42161331Yes. Oh yesssss.>>42161363Night Gobble. Great thread.>>42161408Yesssssss.
>>42161408Makes sense to me.How does everyone feel about Robin getting dommed too? Too magical realm with the incest, or fine?
>>42161408That works perfectly, and should be very easy to write too. GOBBLE!
>>42161442I say go for itnot like's canon
>>42161442I've had stranger wet dreams than incest domination so it's not that magical realm
>>42161469incest dom is pretty vanilla for /tg/
>>42161484Where does a girl rubbing baseballs on her armpits fall? Not sexual or naked either just baseballs on armpits
>>42161484>>42161469that honestly says less than it should
>>42161494Is this a reference to something?Does it have a sadpanda link?
>>42161494Umm, no idea. Probably along the lines of people who have fetishes for brushing teeth and shit.
>>42161507No it's just a wet dream I had once. Girl was just vaguely confused about it too.
>>42161442save it for the sequel
>>42161523Meh. Dreams are odd.
>>42161494That depends if you got an armpit fetish or a baseball fetish out of it
I want to fuck the crazy out of Robin's mom.
>>42161635how long do you have, anon?
>>42161635That's an industrial amount of fuck.
>>42161635more likely the crazy would get fucked into Kat
>>42162091>>42161635...and again, in the space of a single post, /tg/ develops yet another thing for Gobble to write.
