Right right shitty anime quest from a shitty qm. I should go kill myself but I'm bored so ere we go.The Pokemon rap starts blaring from your alarm as you try to bury your head in your pillow. Then Professor>Elm>Birch>Oakcomes on an starts talking about the new trainers starting their journey today! Wait a second, isn't today when you where going on yours?! Crap gotta get dressed! Do you throw on your>Skirt>Shorts
>>43926175>Oak>ShortsWe're going original, mate.
Oak and Shorts
>>>/vp/They do pokemon quests there.
>>43926264Does that mean that the current Naruto and Bleach quests belong on /a/ too?
Right pretty obvious we be going to see Oak and put our shirts on! Writing.
>>43926175>Oak>Skirt with shorts
>>43926332Bitch, who said anything about a shirt. Gotta get those manly pecs out there for the ladies to swoon at.
Professor Oak's voice goes on about how he hopes each new trainer forms new bonds and friendships with not only their new Pokemon but also other trainers. That even if they don't decide to be a battled that they still enjoy the time they have. Of course you barely hear him as you rush through your room putting on your shorts because they're comfy and easy to wear! Okay your never saying that out loud. Never mind first Pokemon here I come! Rushing out the door, without a shirt on to show of your manly pecs and down the streets of>Pallet Town>Cinnabar Island>Cerulean CityYou get to where Professor Oak was handing out the starter Pokemon. Oh crap he only has three left! Hope he has your favorite!"Oh hello young man. Where is your shirt? Never mind where you here to get a Pokemon? What is your name?" He asks.>Well what is your name?
>>43926431>>Pallet Town>Gary Oak
>>43926431>Cinnabar Island>MickHaving options other than Palette town, eh? Very nice.
>>43926431>Cinnabar IslandBecause nowhere else can you say 'I LIVE ON A VOLCANO'.>MackOur signature wrestling move is the MACK ATTACK.
Okay obviously going to be in Pallet Town. Now we just need a name. >Mack>Mick>White>GrayAnd no you can't be Gary Oak. I wouldn't really know what to do sorry.
>>43926576>>GrayAlright, settling for the next best thing.
>>43926593SecondingGary Motherfucking Oak!
>>43926576>Main reason for being in pallet town gone>Still gonna be in pallet town
>>43926576>Be sassy and overconfident>Your tutor is also your grandpaThat's it
>>43926635Then would you rather be somewhere else? Do a revote for location? Sorry first time doing this as QM. Any helpful criticism is appreciated.
>>43926666Nice quads. Don't listen to the whiners, Sleepy. Just stick with the choices unless samefagging is in play.
>>43926666>Oh hello young man Look, just because we decided to wear shorts it doesn't mean we are a boy. Misty best girl and she wore shorts.No, I still want to have manly pecs.
"My name is Gray Professor. I'm sorry I overslept a little bit. But I can still get a Pokemon right!" You say excitedly. "Of course Gray. your choices are between>Caterpie>Abra>CuboneAll the others had been chosen. Also think carefully if you want to give them a nickname."And I have to go pick up my niece from school as she has started puking. Be back in about an hour fifteen minutes to your and a half.
>>43926864Did it really take you 15minutes to write 3 fucking linesalso>cubone
>>43926864>Abra>CuboneI can go for either one of these, so count me towards any really.
>>43926864>CuboneWe not shit pokemon to start with now.
>>43926864>CuboneSo Sleepy, do you plan on actually continuing this, or just having it die off after a few threads and never speaking about it.
>>43926936Sleepy phase =/= Sleepy Anon.
>>43926864Abra. Gotta get da majiks on our side.
Okay so I didnt have to spend an hour arguing with the main office. Writing now.>>43926936Me continuing is all dependent on you guys. If you keep voting ill keep writing.>>43926967Whose Sleepy phase?
"I choose Cubone Professor Oak." you reply happily."Well then do you wish to give him a nickname Gray?" Oak asks as he passes you the pokeballl containing your new Cubone! "Here are some extra pokeballs to catch new ones. This is a pokedex Gray, it will automatically update info on pokemon you have seen or caught. It was once my dream to travel the world and catch them all! Perhaps that is your dream as well?" Oak asks you with a small smile on his face. >Well is it or do you have your own dream to follow?
>>43927499>I will be the very best
>>43927499Run my own gym, maybe even be a member of the elite 4Or for a bigger alternative, archaeologist and we go explore some legendary shit
>>43927499Gonna go find god.When god is found, kill god.Arceus is going down.
So we have>League Champ>Gym Leader>Elite 4 Member>ArchaeologistAny others or vote on those four.
Tentatively calling it for being a gym leader. Anything I can do to improve my writing?
"No Professor I think Id rather be a Gym Leader. Do you know anything that will help?" Gray asks hopefully. "I'd like that a bit more than just catching everything in sight.""Oh that is indeed a fine dream young man. Now you do know how to catch wild pokemon, or would you rather watch me do it first? Of course you should go home and finish dressing in any case." Oak responds. "Now is there anything else you want to ask me before you begin your journey?"
>>43927994Can i get another Pokémon, pls, i will tell u my home adress and my sister guardian
>>43926794Impeccable taste. Tight abs tomboy a best.
Saying good bye to the Professor you turn to head home and walk past the pokecenter. Emerging at the same time is your>Best Friend>Rivalname them or I could pick one for you.
>>43928596>>Best Friend>>RivalToby Jones.
>>43928639A friendly rival? Sounds legit
>>43928596>Best friendSilver>RivalJohn Kappa
So it would appear we have a friendly rival or is our best friend coming out of the pokecenter with our rival? With no real consensus on names.
>>43928914As >>43928639 I express not minding about the outcome
Rolled 6 (1d6)Your best friend and rival Toby. His messy hair black and dirty clothes looking like he just got done making a scene in the grass as usual. Of a height with you he walks up grinning and ask very excitedly, "Hey Gray did you get your Pokemon yet?! Did ya did ya did ya?!? Come on let's have a battle if you did come on no bed just for fun!" He asks seemingly on a sugar high.>Battle him?>Turn him down for now?Dice is for his starter
>>43929260This. Gotta match that enthusiasm.>"HAHAH YOU'RE ON!"
Alright since we're going into s battle here is how it's going to work. I'll give you the list of moves you Pokemon knows and you select one and roll 3d6. 3 You miss completely and get hit by a critical4-8 You miss and get hit by a regular attack9-14 You both hit each other with regular attacks15-18 You hit the opponent with a critical and they miss you completely.How does that seem? Overly complicated or to simple?
>>43929403Looks good for now, only way to say much more is to give it a trial run and see how it goes really
"HAHA YOU"RE ON TOBY!!" you yell, putting your all into it, pulling out your pokeball, "Go Cubone!" As he tosses his out you hear him say, "Go Pikachu! Oh man you have a Cubone. Not fair!" His Pikachu growling and taking up a ready stance across from your Cubone. Both pokemon seem eager and willing to battle. Toby looks at you waiting for you to call a command to Cubone it seems. Cubone's known moves>Scratch>Growl
Rolled 4, 6, 2 = 12 (3d6)>>43929672scratch up in this bitch
Rolled 5, 2, 1 = 8 (3d6)>>43929672>>Scratch
"Cubone use Scratch." you command your Cubone. "Pikachu tackle!"Toby yells. His Pikachu bolting forward on all fours swiftly moving right then left before hitting Cubone square in his chest. Stumbling backwards a foot Cubone rallies himself and lunges at the Pikachu and strikes just below its left eye. Moving backwards to gain space it seems Cubones attack did more damage than the Pikachus. "You're not going to win that easily Gray." Toby taunts.Both pokemon still look eager to continue the battle.Order Cubone>Scratch>Growl
Rolled 5, 2, 1 = 8 (3d6)>>43929963>>Scratch
Rolled 3, 5, 5 = 13 (3d6)>>43929963>>ScratchScratch my bitch up.
"Pikachu use tail whip!" Toby yells as his pokemon abruptly turns around and swishes his tail at Cubone making him drop his guard a bit. "Cubone Scratch once more!" you command watching him run forward swinging his claws on his right hand haphazardly. Closing the distance Cubone connects on the back as Pikachu tried to evade but wasnt quite fast enough.Cubone>Scratch>GrowlYou guys can add write ins for dialogue.>>43930015that just put the song in my head.
>>43930159>>Scratch>"TEAR THAT MOUSE APART CUBONE! SCRATCH!"
Rolled 5, 4, 2 = 11 (3d6)>>43930159>>ScratchThis is almost as boring as the actual game. :P
Rolled 2, 4, 1 = 7 (3d6)>>43930353Forgot roll
>>43930361Okay then how would I make it more exciting?help me out here.
"Pikachu tackle again!" Toby orders his pokemon sending it charging at Cubone launching itself into the air striking him in his chest again. "Tear into it with full force! Cubone Scratch!" you order making him sing his claws down unto the Pikachu's head. Both Pokemon separate opening some distance between them. Pikachu looking a bit worn but still willing to battle. Cubone looks less worn down and still eager to fight.Cubone's moves>Scratch>Growl
>>43930451Well, I'm afraid I don't have the time for a very thorough response, but:- quests are good because they can transcend the limits of other mediums. This is especially the case for a quest that uses an existing story or franchise to build upon. Currently this is not a lot more than the games retold. It's good to try and think up ways to make it different in some capacity- you're using short updates. Not inherently bad, since they can be good to keep the pace high and everything moving along without unnecessary detail. However, the pace ISN'T high, which ~20 minutes minimum between a couple sentence long updates. I'd say this was the main factor involved in the slow and low number of player posts, everyone wanders off to do something else whilst waiting for the next oneThere have been many pokemon quests but nowhere near as many notable ones. Some that stand out in my mind are the slapstick It's Always Sunny in Palette Town, the futuristic 'realistic' Pokemon: Southern Shores, the one set in the middle ages 'Medievalmon', etc. These all had some kinda quirk that made things more engaging, be it simply the style or setting.Last but not least, they also had some meat to their bones - the updates were longer, and typically came more often.
>>43930451add some gimmick during the battles like rock, paper, scissors, but make it so you can predict it through text
Rolled 5, 3, 3 = 11 (3d6)>>43930743>Growl. Let's spice this up a bit and show our dominance
>>43930760Yep. If you are going to go on a well known franchise, well, it has to have something else. I mean, he last three answers to your posts were >Scratch.For a not even mildly important fight. Just ask for a triple roll, get the highest (or somethinglike that) and then use that value to decide who wins or loses, Then describe the whole battle to us, in a medium to large post.Later, when we get more pokemon and get in greater battles, you can do a turn-by-turn battle, or even better, a segment-by-segment battle, where you ask what the players want to focus on.Anyway, you will need something else other than simply a pokemon game to make it roll. Either very good npcs, or really interesting gimmick/story.
>>43930760The time between posts is because I've been keeping an eye on my niece who started puking in school. So I should add details about the battle or the surroundings? I'm not very good at descriptive writing apparently. Sorry about the lackluster performance.>>43930855You mean give context clues about what is going to happen? Or something completely different?>>43930953I could try something like that in the next battle I guess. Assuming of course anyone is around.
okay im just about falling asleep over the keyboard. Sorry for making this shitty little thing. If its still up when i wake up ill continue.
>>43931014>The time between posts is because I've been keeping an eye on my niece who started puking in school. Sorry about the lackluster performance.Hey, don't worry about it. You're far from the worst QM I've seen, and starting out is always hardest. As with most things QMing largely comes with practise.>So I should add details about the battle or the surroundings? I'm not very good at descriptive writing apparently.Well, as someone already said, this battle isn't something that requires several updates. The first fight has essentially no room for tactical manoeuvring and is best left to a single roll and a summarised writeup. Later on when the pokemon know more attacks and the typing is actually relevant combat will benefit for being split into more sections.One thing that some pokemon quests do (which borrows from the anime a bit I believe?) is to have players come up with bullshit tactics. It's not just 'use tackle. use tackle', but 'come at it from the side with a tackle, take its legs out!' etc. The environment doesn't need a lot of description, but throwing in details about things that could be used tactically is great, eg:- floor is hard and smooth, rock types and things with clawed feet find it harder to move fast on it- there's some small rocks that could be lobbed around- there's a tree to hide behindDescriptive writing is hard, but one thing I find helps is to try to write it as the character experiences it rather than what is there. This can also give the narrator a bit more personality as a side effect - perhaps some things are described in an amusing manner, or with snark, or whatever.Again, the trick is in adding the pertinent details and the few optional extra that give it more flavour.>>43931328Sleep well, SleepyAnon, and don't give up on your dreams of being the best quest writer there ever was.
>>43931014context clues yeah, but in a system where you have three choices (rock, paper, scissors) and you have to predict which of the three moves your opponent will use.
>>43931328Lets see if anyone else is willing to bump this after I go to sleep
Okay a quick question before I jump back into this. Just Gen 1 or a mix of different Gens? Also you guys fucking rock for bumping this. Gonna hit the rewind button to right before the battle begins.
>>43933828Feel free to join us when you wake: >>43931463
>>43934806>Gonna hit the rewind button to right before the battle begins.No need to go that far.Also golden rule of QMing number 1: never retcon, it sets a bad precedent and leaves the quest open for players to whine until they get their way - not saying that's going to happen here, but, just, don't.Just conclude the fight and move on.And a mix is best, whilst I generally prefer the earlier gens the later ones had some neat mons too.
>>43934887Do not advertise your quest in other quest threads
>>43934896Nah it's more to approach it in a different style than what I tried originally. And it looks like a mix of the gens it is.
>>43934999>Nah it's more to approach it in a different style than what I tried originallyMaybe, but I'm sure we'll fight our first bug catcher soon assuming a wild pokemon doesn't cut the mustard. It's better to progress than to try to refine.
"Haha you're on Toby! But let's not battle here okay? I think there is a clear space around the corner." you say grinning at him. "Yeah okay punk! Doesn't matter where we go I'm still gonna win!" Toby shoots back. Turning around and heading to the side of the pokecenter you come to the small area used for trainer battles. The grassy lot has some small rocks around that might be used as projectiles by Pokemon."I hope your ready to lose Gray. My Pokemon and I have already been in a few matches. Don't worry we'll go easy on ya. Go Pikachu! Let's see what you got!" Toby confidantly states releasing his Pokemon. "Go Cubone!" you release your one and only Pokemon for his first battle. A nervous energy taking hold as you survey the battlefield. Toby's Pikachu standing on its hind legs almost relaxed and sure of itself. A couple of rocks strewn about that might hamper its movement o it's side. Your Cubone standing proud and swinging its bone club lazily through the air. What will you do? The foes Pikachu seems like it'll be faster than you Cubone. It looks as if it's tensing to attack.>>43935023It's more trying to figure out what works and what doesn't at this point.
>>43935119AIM FOR THE LEGS!! THE STUBBY LITTLE LEGS
>>43935137All right roll me 3d6 real quick to see how the battle goes for us.
Rolled 2, 3, 4 = 9 (3d6)>>43935487
Rolled 4, 2, 5 = 11 (3d6)>>43935487
Just need one more roll people.
Rolled 6, 4, 3 = 13 (3d6)>>43935648 >>43935712
"Pikachu use tackle!" Toby orders his Pokemon as it leaps into action. "Slow it down by focusing your attacks on its legs Cubone!" you order in response. Pikachu sprints in a zig-zag motion attempting to throw Cubone off as it rockets into his chest. Swinging his bone at Pikachu he connects with its left leg eliciting a small grunt from the electric type. Both Pokemon back off with Pikachu coming off worse in the small exchange."Nice try Gray but my Pikachu is stronger than that! Quick attack this time and try to throw it off balance!" Toby commands. "Keep hitting the legs Cubone and we will win!" you encourage your Pokemon. Pikachu darts quickly after Cubone faster than before and slams into his side cussing him to stumble a few steps back before regaining his posture. Swinging the club sideways Cubone hits the same leg again. Pikachu retreats favoring the right side stepping on a loose rock. Pikachu looks a little battered but still willing to fight. Toby looks like he's going to try something different this time. Cubone seems a little winded after the last attack but otherwise looks okay. What will you try to do now?How was that?
>>43935970Getting better already. Just keep you'll notice that writing will become natural to you over time, but keep trying to think of things to improve about your own writing in between quests. That way you'll develop your own style, but advice from anons can be valuable too.For now though, try not to change things too drastically within a given thread. Save that for the next. You're doing fine for a first time.Oh, and use something like a pastebin for thread archive links, pokemon stats, inventory and all that. Don't worry about that until the end of the thread.
>>43936126Oh, a Twitter would be nice to announce the next quest thread in advance. No need to plan weeks ahead. Just a notice "thread in 1 hour, faggots".As for all the end-of-thread things I mentioned, usually QMs take a short timeframe at the end of a quest to answer questions and recieve feedback. You'll find that to be the appropriate moment to engage in discussion on the how and why of things.
>>43935970>Club im roight in da gabba, m8
>>43936576Right and less Orky means hit him in the mouth?
>>43936736>Brits are orks nowGW was right all alongAlso yes, but any knock on the head will do. Just want his lights out.
>>43936794Just avvin a giggle m8! Writing.
wait 3d6 real quick first!
Rolled 4, 6, 6 = 16 (3d6)>>43936865
>>43937006Oh shit. That poor pikachu got absolutely destroyed.
"Alright Pikachu use tail whip!" "Cubone keep hitting him till he's down!" You both order simultaneously. Pikachu starts to turn around but the damage to his leg chased him to flinch. Cubone uses this moment to rush towards Pikachu and land a big hit with his bone club on his opponents head. Not letting up Cubone scratches with his free hand raking his claws across Pikachu's chest. Retreating a few steps Cubone readies himself for another attack. Pikachu looks dazed and stumbles around a bit before regaining focus. "Okay Pikachu use quick attack once more!" Toby yells a little desperately. "Cubone one more attack to finish him!" you command. Pikachu charges forward once more but at a significant speed decrease. Launching itself at Cubone he simply moves to the side and swats the flying rodent upside the head with his club knocking it unconscious. Resting it's bone club on it shoulder Cubone lets out a victory cry!! "Pikachu return! Damnit you got luck Gray don't think it'll go this well for you again!" Toby yells as he recalls his unconscious Pokemon. "But really I didn't think you'd win good match. But we should really head to the pokecenter now." He finishes his sentence with a small smile. >Congratulations for winning your first trainer battle! Are you going to take your friends advice and head to the pokecenter or do something else first?
>>43937306There are pokemon centers in pallet, now? Go back to oak, have him use his healing station and boast about the victory. Then go home to show this cute brute to mom.
>>43937306Go heal up then do the rest of >>43937455
"I'm headed for Professor Oak's to use his healing station and brag that I just beat you!" you say to Toby. "Come on Gray. That isn't funny. Besides the pokecenter was just built because of the increase of traffic through here to Cinnabar Island and it's right around the corner." Toby protests. "Nope later nerd!" you yell back recalling your victorious Cubine and looking at Toby, "Oh come on I was joking let's go. But you just want to stare at Nurse Joy don't you?""W-what n-no! It's just you should take care of your Pokemon!!" Toby responds a bit heatedly. Turning around and heading towards the pokecenter ignoring your friends protests you calmly enter and stop for a second to look around. On the right hand side you see a couple of phone booths and restrooms. Straight ahead are the Nurse stations that will take care of your Pokemon and a small area for pokepamphlets. In the left are some stairs that lead up to the trainer rooms. Walking up to the counter with Toby getting redder and redder Nurse Joy asks, "Oh a new face! Are you here to get your Pokemon looked at young one?" Nodding your head you give her your poke all containing Cubone. "Oh he doesn't seem that injured give us about ten minutes and he'll be done. Now why are you back again so soon Toby right?" "It's because I beat him in my first trainer battle!" you proudly exclaim. Toby looks upset at that before saying that he did lose to you in a match.Waiting around reading a few of the pamphlets you go collect your Pokemon from Nurse Joy. "Thank you for coming in I hope to see you again." Waving to Toby you leave the pokecenter and head home. Walking in the front door you shout in excitement "Mom! I just won my first battle! It was awesome! Oh check out my Pokemon Cubone!" Releasing him as she comes out of the kitchen. "Gray what have I told you about shouting in the house. And isn't he adorable!" "He's not adorable mom he's a badass!" you complain.All right getting tired again so ending here I guess.
Comment too long my ass! But yeah I'll stick around for a little bit if you guys want to ask any questions. Also if someone could archive for me as I'm doing this from my phone. That'd be awesome if you and I'd give ya an Internet brofist.
Thank you for running.
>>43926264Mods said quests belong on /tg/. Go cry to them
>>43938284Good show, Sleepy.One bit of advice is to have pictures with your updates. It really helps make your posts stand out.Also Twitter
>>43938284I'm proud of you Sleepy! I see you following all the same quests as me, so its good to see you running one now! congrats.
Well set up a twatter. I feel a little dirty now. @pokeqmsleepy I think. Never done it before so I don't know. Also how do pastebin? Do I need an account or what?
>>43943255>http://pastebin.com/No account needed.
So anyone still around for me to continue?
>>43944529i want to visit my home
>>43944529Yes. I am.
"Gray keep your voice down. He is a cutie though isn't he? Now go take your shower and get dressed." your mom states. Giving her a suffering sigh you climb back up the stairs and disrobe for the shower. Wrapping yourself in a towel you head into your room at the back of the house. Looking around it maybe you should clean it a bit more? Eh not important right now. Time to get dressed and get going to become a Gym Leader! Throwing on some cargo shorts and a light t-shirt you throw the towel into the bathroom and run downstairs for some breakfast.Passing the TV in the living room, that had some stupid movie about four kids on railroad tracks on it, and entering the kitchen you see your Cubone sitting on the counter getting fed bacon by your mom. "Hey how come he gets to sit on the counter and I don't?" you ask a little indignantly. "Because he's a lot smaller than you. Now did you give him a nickname yet? What do yo want for breakfast as well?">Nickname? And what does our aspiring Gym Leader want for breakfast?
>>43944934>Nickname?Murdock>Breakfast?Pancakes with lots of bacon!
>>43944934God. I a am terrible at nicknames. Give me a minute.And some bread will be enough.
>>43944934>All these write-insIt's like you have zero creativity to give us choices to vote for.
>>43945016How would you set up choices for Nicknames?
All right it looks like we have>Murdock>No Nickname>Palaiologos>SethFor nicknamesAnd for breakfast we have>bread>pancakes with a lot of bacon.
>>43945259I'm sticking with >>43944986
It looks like we having motherfucking pancakes and lots of bacon. Also naming Cubone Murdock
>>43946063Should probably get more than my vote in support of it.
>>43946340At least for the name
"Can I have some pancakes with lots and lots of bacon mom? I was thinking of naming him Murdock." you say sitting down at the table. "Hey how do you like the name Murdock?" you ask the now named Cubone."Cu Bone." is the response as he stands up and raises his arms above his head. "Haha well guess you like it then." "Here's your pancakes and bacon try not to make a mess of yourself so soon after getting out of the shower today ok?" Digging into the food before you you say, "Yesh ohfay." "Arceus Gray don't talk with your mouth full. Even Murdock has better manners than you. Are you leaving town today? In any case just be careful and try calling home once in a while." mom says as you finish you breakfast. Returning Murdock to his ball you clip it to your belt and head outside and think about what your mom has said. Are you going to be leaving town today or take few days to train up and prepare better? Taking the time to train might put you behind others in a travel sense but might put you ahead of them in a battling sense. Shaking your head to clear yourself of these thoughts you go looking for Toby again.>Leave town now>Wait a bit and prepare>Look for Toby at the Pokecenter>Look for him at Route 1Name is an easy retcon and the only vote is yours and it was an hour with no one else saying anything.
>>43946372>>Wait a bit and prepareI'm excited but there's no need to rush out of here.
>>43946372Murdock is fine.
>>43946372>Wait a bit and prepare>Look for Toby at the Pokecenter
Hmm. Maybe I should wait a little bit longer to head out like my mom said. You think to yourself before putting you hands behind your head and walking off to the Pokecenter looking for Toby. Walking around the front of the building you see a few people crowded in front watching a battle. You see Toby is going against someone you've never seen before. Looking at them you see a >Boy>GirlTheir pokemon a weird one you have never seen before. Pulling out your pokedex you point it at it and get, "Litleo are quadruped, feline Pokémon. In battle, its tuft of fur radiates heat, and when up against a strong opponent, the temperature increases. When wild Litleo grow stronger, they leave the pack and begin to live alone. Litleo is a hot-blooded Pokémon that is quick to start fights." "Interesting where did that come from!" you exclaim looking at it. Watching his Pikachu sending blasts of electric at the Litleo you get anxious and want a battle yourself. Toby waves at you saying, "Hey Gray watch me beat them then we'll have a rematch okay?">Win first>No waySecond vote>Cheer him on>Just watchRoll 3d6 please for how well he does regardless.
>>43947023>Boy>Win First>Just Watch

Rolled 1, 4, 2 = 7 (3d6)>>43947023>Boy>Win First>Cheer him onAssuming I'm not grotesquely too late...As a side note, tip for formatting dialogue:Rather than:"Hi, nice weather today isn't it, er..." said person A, "...young... man?" "How DARE you say that to me why I oughta-" Came the reply. "Now hold on just a moment-"Do:"Hi, nice weather today isn't it, er..." said person A, "...young... man?""How DARE you say that to me why I oughta-" Came the reply."Now hold on just a moment-"Makes it much clearer who's speaking when it's one person per line and spaces the text out better in general for easier reading.

You see an older boy dressed in a weird shirt that has an Arceus design on it and pants with way to many belts and pockets with a bandanna across his forehead keeping his black hair out of his eyes. "Litleo use fire spin!" The stanger commands. Causing the tiny pokemon to gather energy in it's mouth before blasting it at Toby's pikachu who dodges it but sets part of the battlefield ablaze and cutting off a source of retreat."Pikachu use thundershock and end this!" Toby commands. Pikachu immediately blasts more electricity at the feline shocking it and making it look stiffer than it did a second ago."Come Toby! you got this!" you cheer him on as Pikachu dodges more attacks from the Litleo. "Besides I'll only battle you if you win!""Hah you're on Gray. Pikachu quick attack to get behind and blast it with your strongest thundershock!" Pikachu takes off sprinting along the unburnt grass moving past the struggling Litleo and shooting another thundershock into it. The Litleo collapses at that and you see the stranger recall it and walk over to Toby."That was a good match. Though looking away and talking to someone else during is a bit disrespectful to your opponent no?" he says before turning to you and holding a hand out, "I'm Marcel and I'd like to battle you later if you would?""Hey Gray let me heal Pikachu up and we'll get our rematch on okay?" Toby says before hurrying into the pokecenter.>Agree to battle Marcel?>Decline to battle>Talk to Marcel>Wait silently for TobyPeople please be civil. I know I take forever writing up posts but no excuse to start flinging insults. This was late becuase had to check the stew for dinner.
>>43947661>Agree to battle Marcel?Later on, after we've got some training done>Talk to Marcel
>>43947661>Agree to battle Marcel?>Talk to Marcel>"So where'd you find this critter anyway? I've never seen one before"Does our Cubone know any new attacks? Not that pikachu's thundershock will do shit vs us.
>>43947710It won 1 fight, which tends to be enough to get to level 6. Cubone learns Bone Club at level 7.
>>43947892Oh, my bad, I didn't realise Pikachu started with thundershock.
>>43947892>Cubone learns Bone Club at level 7.We should bash wilds just enough to hit level 7 so that we can curbstomp everything until we meet zubats
"Gray as you may have noticed. I'll take a raincheck right now about battling you. Maybe later? If your still in the area. But where'd you get that Pokemon? I've never seen anything like it here." You say as you shake Marcel's hand."We can battle later on and no I'm not really planning on moving away from this area just yet. I'm new to the Kanto region as I am from Kalos. Which is also where I got my Litleo. Did you just start our journey as well Gray?" Marcel replies nodding his head at your suggestion. "What brings you to Kanto then if you're from Kalos?" You ask a bit puzzled. "That is the easy part my family moved here. My father is a Pokemon researcher and he wanted to work with the great Professor Oak. I only arrived here this morning.""Heeey! Gray you ready to lose!" Toby's voice comes from a few paces away. "We've been in couple more battles since this morning. We won't lose again!" "We'll be seems fired up. Well good luck. I'm going to go heal my Pokemon and go home to get some sleep Gray." Marcel waves as he heads away."You are going down again Toby!" You say walking into position throwing out Murdock. Looking over the field you see the rocks have been moved around a bit. The right side of the terrain is burnt by the fire spin. Toby releases his Pikachu who looks a little faster and stronger than before. Murdock>Scratch>Growl>Club smackBetcha guys didn't see him being from Kalos!
>>43948042>Move to the area with the rocks, it'll make it harder for pikachu to quick attack us if there are obstacles>Club smack that bitch up
>>43948042Growl first. If he's stronger we need to get the debuffs out early.

>>43948203Thanks for saving us, you rolled well
Yes but what exactly are you doing doing? Standing still and growling/club smack a bitch up? Or moving into the rocks THEN growling/club smack a bitch up?
>>43948348Can't we move as we preform our attack?
>>43948371You can but move where exactly? Away from you? Closer or to the rocks?
>>43948406> to the rocks
"Murdock move to the rocks and wait for the Pikachu to get close then hit it with Club smack!" You order your Pokemon who immediately sets off towards the rocks. "Nice try Gray but it won't work! Pikachu thunder shock! W-wait no I meant tail whip!" Toby orders his confused Pokemon. Murdock gets to the rocks and waits patiently for the Pikachu to get closer. Pikachu meanwhile tries to launch a thundershock at the ground type following his trainers orders. The bolt hits Murdock square in the chest doing nothing other than giving a good show. Turning around Pikachu attempts to use tail whip but trips itself over."All right Pikachu use quick attack!" Toby commands. Pikachu runs along the ground shifting his approach form left to right inthe blink of an eye catching Murdock in the left side. Murdock retaliates smacking the mouse Pokemon in the side with his club sending it careening off to the side. Rushing up to it he hits it one more time in the left leg befor it recovers itself and dodges backwards. "You're gonna pay for that one Gray!" Toby yells. Looking a little mad at himself for his earlier blunder. His Pikachu looking a bit winded by otherwise fine.Murdock rests lightly giving no sign of any difficulty.>Murdock>Scratch>Growl>Club smackYeah last time I roll my own dice for Toby. Two ones and a 6.

Writing. Still can't get over how I didn't notice the A-Team reference.
>>43948991Why says it wasn't a Daredevil reference?
>>43949015>WhyWas supposed to be "Who"
>>43948991Wait until you see which pokemon we're going to catch to fill the roles of BA, Face and Hannibal.
>>43948939Not with those rolls it won't, buddy.
>>43949043If we're going to be a gym leader we should focus on ground types.How about Krookodile for Face?
"Pikachu use quick attack!" Toby orders again. Pikachu runs forward switching up where he's headed before lunging into Murdock's chest. "Club Smack Murdock! Put him down!" you say. Murdock brings his arm back before bringing it crashing into Pikachu's right arm sending it scuttling backwards. Both Pokemon continue the close range assault with Pikachu using a tackle into Murdock's left side again. Murdock scratches with his right hand across Pikachu's back.Pikachu backs out of range looking tired from that exchange. Holding his arm closer to his chest than normal. Toby's eyes are cuatious. You don't know what to expect from him for the moment.Murdock is starting to breathe heavier now. That quick exchange tiring him out more than the others. He's still ready and willing to fight the Pikachu.>Murdock>Scratch>Growl>Club Smack>Stay in the rocks>Advance>RetreatYeah. Matt Murdock. But why exactly DD?
>>43949166>Club SmackLet him come to us>>43949098Nidoking for Hannibal.Rhyperior or Camerupt for BA?

>>43949318Doesn't fit the Gym Leader theme
>>43949318>What is a ground type?
Okay writing. Real quick though how is the dice mechanic? Too easy? Too hard?
>>43949318>fighting type>mohawkYou might be onto something there...
>>439493583d6 gets a pretty balanced curve, best of three might make it too easy, but /tg/ dice is pretty wonky so who knows.
>>43949343>>43949354>sticking to a single typeI can't think of them off the top of my head but I'm pretty confident that there are leaders who had the off mon here and there that wasn't actually typed according to their gym.Not to mention that Blue became a gym leader and used mixed types.Also Rhydon isn't ground type.
>>43949437>Also Rhydon isn't ground type.Yes he is.
>>43949452Whoops, my tiredness betrayed me. I was looking through the list of ground types and saw Rhyperior by itself and took that to mean Rhydon was just rock.
>>43949437Considering how OP most PCs in pokemon quests become I say we could use the typing handicap.
>>43949437>A few gym leaders are too retarded to realize Rhydon is a ground type
>>43949507Well, ground type is one of my favourites anyway. I'm all for a predominantly ground team. I just think that Scrafty still makes the best candidate for a BA lookalike if people want to go down that route and that having a ground team with a dark/fighting tacked on the end isn't an issue.
"Man your Cubone is certainly a tough one huh? Pikachu tail whip! Lower its defenses!" Toby orders. "Murdock Club Smack! Hit it so hard Toby feels it!" You command at nearly the same time as Toby. Pikachu turns on the spot waggling his tail at Murdock cutely that he drops his guard more than usual. Approaching the opponent though the rocks Murdock starts his backswing giving it his all and sticking Pikachu across the shoulders making it do a cartwheel from the force of the blow. However it seems it's fighting spirit isn't out as it quickly rights itself and charges Murdock and hits him with a quick attack in his left side again. Using a backhanded blow Murdock connects with Pikachu's head once more ringing its bell and knocking it away. Retreating to the rocks Murdock looks winded from the repeated strikes to his left side. Pikachu looks even more ragged from that strong blow taking its time to move backwards. Breathing heavily it seems eager to finish the fight before it loses. Toby looks concerned after the last attack. You think he might try to end it with the next attack.>Murdock>Scratch>Growl>Coub Smack>Advance but it might be a trick>Stay there and attempt to lure him into a disadvantageous positionChoose one from each and roll3d6.
>>43949545>Switch club to left hand to better protect flank>Advance but it might be a trick>Time to smack a bitch up
Rolled 5, 1, 5 = 11 (3d6)>>43949545How can Pikachu still be up after so many super effective attacks?>Club Smack, Finish this
Rolled 3, 4, 2 = 9 (3d6)>>43949579Ohgod I keep doing this
Rolled 4, 3, 5 = 12 (3d6)>>43949579Sounds good, seconding
Writing. Well he has been training it all morning and Club Smack is just hitting it with a club no special attributes.
"Okay Pikachu use tail whip once more!" Toby says. Pikachu turning around waving his tail at Murdock once more. "Advance but switch you club to your left hand and club smack to finish it Murdock!" Murdock let's out a cry as he does it before advancing forwards the Pikachu. The tail whip affecting him the same as before. Nearing the Pikachu Murdock fears back to strike it but is interrupted by a tackle straight to his chest knocking him off balance. Falling back a few steps Murdock swings haphazardly at Pikachu connecting with its stomach sending it sprawling. Falling to his back Murdock takes a few to catch his breath before standing up. Pikachu stays down. "Looks like I win again Toby." You give him a big grin rushing towards your Pokemon giving him a hug before returning him to his pokeball. "How do you keep beating me Gray?It doesn't seem fair!" Toby says. "We should have won that." Returning Pikachu he stalks off towards the pokecenter. Well then he seemed upset about losing to you again. Maybe you should talk to him about it. After healing Murdock perhaps? Or are you going to pick up some supplies at the pokemart?>What do?
>>43950015Heal Murdock up and then do exploring, we hard counter our rival right now but we should expand our team.
>>43950015Chill man, I've got a type advantage so don't beat yourself up over losing to me.
>>43950015Follow Toby to the Pokémon center for healing and teasing him about his crush on the local Joy-san.Tell him that if all you have is one Pokémon, some matches are won or lost before they start.
>>43950015>Heal at pokecentre>Buy some balls (not that we need any)>Maybe a potion if we got the dosh>Pester mum for a picnic or something, go eat it with Toby for dinner to try and cheer him up. Maybe mention that the typing advantage is hilariously unfair.
All right looks like we be chasing him down and talking about things. Also last post from me as dinner is almost done then I get to go be a nerd and move army men around and make pew pew noises.
"Hey Toby wait up!" you call after him. Hurrying to catch him you walk beside him for a few seconds in silence before saying, "It's not that your doing anything wrong Toby. It's a type match up that works in my favour not yours. I mean if you had the type advantage I'd have lost.""I know Gray it's just frustrating that you beat me twice in a row already. I had hoped to even the score. Maybe even brag to Nurse Joy a little." he finishes blushing a little. "So you only want to beat me to impress Nurse Joy huh? Well I think I could let you win once to not make you look completely terrible in front of her eh? Or just ya know not suck! Haha" nudging him in the ribs at the last part. Walking into the Pokemon center for the second time that day you head to the counter and hand over your ball to Nurse Joy. "We'll be looks a bit more banged up this time so it'll take about 15 minutes. And you better not be bringing your Pikachu back anymore today young man!" She glares at Toby. Walking out to the pokemart with Toby following. Looking over the merchandise you we a few potions and pokeballs, a paralyze heal even some escape ropes. Grabbing two potions potions and two extra pokeballs you head to the counter and ask how much for them. "Well that's two hundred for each pokeball and a hundred for the potions. So 600 in total."Looking over the money you have you count out only 371 before Toby hands you 300. "Here for beating me again. Just don't lose to anyone before me got it!" he walks away before you could say anything. Handing the money to the store clerk you ask for a bag to carry them until you get home. Walking out hoping to catch Toby to invite him over for dinner or something you don't see him. Heading to the pokecenter to pick up Murdock you head home to store your new items in an old backpack. Wondering what lies ahead of you for the rest of the day and tomorrow as well!>quest officially overFeel free to talk about Pokemon you'd like to see.
Field too long bull. Or Pokemon you'd like to try and add to the party, [spoilers]Potential waifus?[/spoilers]. And I'm joking about that last part.
>>43950651>quest officially overAs in this being the last thread of this quest, or did you mean "Thread officially over"?
>>43950739Meant thread. Sorry. That's why I'm the SleepyAnon. Also that archive description and tag.
>>43950651It was a good thread sleepy. And I like having cubone as a starter.now let's get a paras
>>43950974>And I like having cubone as a starter.Yeah, it's by far my favourite Pokemon
>>43950673Who needs waifus when they have cubone?
