A newly minted trainer and camping enthusiast just starting out on your journey at the age of seventeen after your father lost his job in order to help pay the bills. On the road, you met Fie, the Fire Gym Leader, Gareth a novice Aura Guardian on pilgrimage and Holly, a runaway heiress using a pseudonym. You've also made enemies of Team Green a group of violent, radical activists looking to abolish pokemon training.Last time, you made friends with a flock of Wingull, returned to Saltcoast City, battled Mike and caught Gareth up on what happened on South Crescent island.
>>5691355>>5691360>>5691406>>5691467>>5691974"Sure. I'm going to play with Nika for a bit." You reply, before heading down to one of the secondary courts.Once there, you release her and are almost immediately tackled in a fierce hug by a very energetic Riolu.>Just play.>Make a game of obedience training.>Meditate.>Train.>Other

>>5692096>Just play.We should just bond with her for now. We've been separated from her for a while.

>>5693325You had an idea of doing some obedience training, but that falls by the wayside as you wrestle with Nika, rolling around on the arena floor and letting her win, occasionally admonishing her when she gets a little too rough, but generally, just having fun.After about half an hour, you're both just reduced to laying down and watching the sun set through the roof.>Meditate.>Go have dinner.>Other
>>5694107>Go have dinner.>>OtherTeach Nika table manners.Meditation can wait for tommorow morning or right before bed time if Fie doesn't get frisky.

>>5695304>>5695311>>5695349As it starts to get dark, you hoist Nika up to your shoulders and head back to the apartment before settling down to meditate with her.It takes a little coaxing, but a little help from Gareth and his Riolu later and you and Nika are meditating together.You're almost overwhelmed by how happy she is. It's difficult to really concentrate on much else, but that's okay. After so long apart, you're just happy that she's happy.She unsurprisingly takes well to meditating, so you just focus on getting her acquainted with Aura for half an hour until Gareth calls that dinner's ready.You do like your camp cooking, but there's just something to be said for a meal in the comfort of home on your return that makes camping all that much more fun in your view.Soon enough, you've finished up and Nika's dozed off on the couch next to Cinder.>Do some more training.>Get ready for bed.>Talk.>Other.

(Alex actually likes the work and teaching fire safety)."Holly should make an appointment with a doctor for her legs."Maybe shop around for various berry types/seeds ourselves (the type resisting berries should work best for this) and buy the TM for Natural Gift as we can get a shitload of things done with it (familiarizing our mons with types of energy they are unfamiliar with by practicing with different berry types).Maybe think up how to clear up the city of TG goons in a safe manner not endangering ourselves or civilians.
>>5695900>>5695903>>5695918>>5696540"So, you want me back in the Gym?" You ask Fie after you've been settled quietly watching the series Fie put on for about half an hour."Up to you. If you'd rather just focus on training for the next week or whatever, that's your decision." She replies. "You've earned it, in my book. And considering how you changed up your team, you probably could use a week catching the rest of your pokemon up." She notes."I'll join in in the afternoons. I'm going to keep on playing Gym Trainer." Gareth says."And Clytie and I are going to work on psychic practice." Holly adds, backed by a nod from Gardevoir."Agreed on a name then?" You ask."Mmhm." Holly says. "Names are hard." She admits. "How d'you...?">They're not easy, no.>I just go with what I feel fits.>I've got to think about 'em.>Other

>>5697357>>5697383>>5697406>>5697476"I just go with what I feel fits." You reply modestly. "Blitz likes to run, Sage has really grown into hers and Rusty, I just went with a pun.""Oh... that must make things easy." Holly admits."Mm. Anyway, I think I'll keep rotating Blitz and Sage in the mornings and help with the gym and train everyone else in the afternoon." You say. "Maybe get another fire type.""Not until you've trained up more of your current team, you won't." Fie says. "You're making a pretty common rookie mistake - spreading yourself too thin. Train up the pokemon you have now first." She advises.>Oh. Alright then.>I'll live.>Other
>>5698647>>OtherWell i thought about rearing a male Torchic to calm Cinder down eventually but ok.

>>5698647>Oh. Alright then.Unironically good advice.
>>5698747>>5698826>>5701026"Oh. Alright then." You reply.You're abruptly reminded that you're still new to being a trainer.Your success thus far has done wonders for your confidence but Fie's words have rather neatly brought you up short with the realisation that you actually can make mistakes.She gives you a wry smile."Hey, we all start somewhere." She says."I know."You watch another episode or two of the show Fie's queued up before everyone calls it.>Get up early and start training.>Sleep in.
>>5701620>Get up early and start training.Give Rusty and Blitz some warmup/speed training and we race alongside them while practicing chanelling aura for movement (Agility training).Make sure nobody overexerts or injures themselves.Then when Fie comes around to join in resume boxing practice.

>>5701624>>5702030>>5702055You sleep soundly and find yourself awake and alert about half an hour before your alarm.You slip out of bed so as not to wake Gareth, before gathering up Blitz, Rusty and Nika's poke balls before heading down to the arena.You set the former two to doing laps as speed training and a warm up, before settling down with Nika to do some more mediating after explaining the basic principles of Agility for her.>Roll 3 D100.

>>5702787Yeah, job's going alright. Six thirty start is a bit of a killer when it's a half hour drive though. Sleep schedule's finally starting to catch up though.
>>5702830That's good op.Keep at it.Noon nap or early bedtime helps the most in this regard.>During breakfast Alex suggests to Gareth to make noon naps a habit because that's when they will usually stop for lunch anyway.
>>5702782>>5702794>>5702814You settle into a comfortable meditative mindset with Nika as Rusty and Blitz begin to run.Blitz quickly laps Rusty, before just as quickly pulling close to Rusty to start giving him pointers on how to move and run more effectively.He's actually a pretty good teacher when he wants to be, it turns out and soon, sooner than you'd expected, Rusty has finished a lap and started on a second.Blitz returns to running himself after that, but Rusty's clearly taken the advice to heart and spends the next fifteen minutes internalising it while you work with Nika.She makes great strides on Agility as well and soon enough, she's got it down pat, around about the time Fie comes in with Cinder."Had a productive morning already, huh?" She asks."Very." You reply.>Focus on Nika.>Focus on Rusty.>Focus on Blitz.>Train with Cinder.>Other

Fie suggests as Cinder squares up.You nod, before setting Nika to doing some bag work while you spar.In the meantime, you encourage Blitz and Rusty to keep running.Things go pretty well - you're starting to get the hang of kickboxing and even managing to implement it more into your style and keep up with Cinder.Blitz meanwhile, seems to have tuckered himself out, while Rusty just keeps on cruising, boosting himself up to a pretty respectable clip with Rock Polish. He won't be winning any medals in a sprint, but he's nippy for an Aron.Nika meanwhile, is still fairly uncoordinated on the bag, but she's got the spirit and she hasn't tripped herself up yet.When Fie calls a halt, you're hot and sweaty, but you're not exhausted.Cinder chirps, nudges you ffably on the way past and heads back towards the apartment as Fie shakes her head."You're getting better at that." She says. "So, what's the plan today?" She asks.>Train a specific pokemon.>Train with Gareth.>Train with Holly.>Got time to help me train?>I'm going to help with the gym.>Other

"Don't go letting Nika wear herself out either." She advises."I won't." You assure. "Oh yeah, turns out part of Holly's problem with walking is her feet. Apparently her dad never did anything about it.""Of course he didn't." She says, shaking her head. "I'll talk to her about it and sort things out." Fie assures.>Roll 2D100First for general training.

>>5710234Guess he has the same disobedience problem as Blitz now (the same training method from the canine advisory manual applies now i guess).
>>5710241>First for general trainingMore like he didn't have the best time in training rather than something specific like discipline issues.
>>5710369It's a crit fail tho so something severe that needs attention is happening.Discipline issues on a metal dinosaur are naturally bad.
>>5710438Or he could get another concussion (in the same area no less), which is arguably worse and would be more in line with the trouble a crit fail could give us.
>>5710440No just no.General training exercise would mean he strained his muscles, there's sething wrong with his stamina or....Here's a better suggestion.After practicing Iron head Rusty started shedding his metal shell for the first time mid physical exercise and won't be able to train physically for a day or two until his new shell has hardened after growing.He'll need extra food (meat and steel attributed berries) and a decent amount of select metal too (hurting Alex's pocket more than anything).O suggest feeding him a Steel alloy with a sliver of Zinc and Silver mixed in.Those form a flexible spring steel that will allow him to heal more easily.
>>5710440>rusty gets out of commission because of a concussion and needs to rest>we switch him back to train up after he's healed>immediately gets another concussion That sounds hilarious. And fucking annoying.
>>5710440>>5710446>>5710759While the memelord in me agrees with another concussion, it'll be the shedding suggestion.No sense in getting you to bench pokemon when the idea is to train more broadly.
>>5710446That's actually pretty fair.>>5710986Honestly that's a good call.
>>5710986Ahh manly guys doing manly things, a pretty good webcomic
>>5710118>>5710130>>5710234Fie leaves after that, leaving you to treat Blitz and Nika, before calling Rusty over.He's all warmed up now and in short order, you're busily going over the basics of Iron Head with him.The next hour, you spend practicing it and doing some training into the bargain.It goes pretty well, up until you're just practicing Iron Head to confirm he's got it.He pulls the move off flawlessly... and then his headplate cracks and shards fall off."Wha..."Before your eyes, more pieces begin to flake off, before you hurriedly recall Rusty, then Nika and Blitz and race back inside and up to the apartment."What's wrong?" Fie asks in concern when she sees the look on your face."It's Rusty. We were just practicing Iron Head and his headplate cracked and started flaking off." You explain."Oh, he's shedding?" Gareth asks, opening his pokedex before thumbing through to the relevant entry and opening a sub-tab before showing you."Yeah, like that." You confirm as you study the pictures."Yeah, he'll be doing that for a day or two." Fie says. "Aron like to eat their shed carapace, so make sure you collect it all." She advises. "Also, get him some supplements. I think Justine mentioned that metallurgic formulae are kind of a good guide for developing Arons' carapace. I'll give her a ring and see if she's got any suggestions before I open properly." She says. "Still, there's a specialist store nearby you might want to go hit up after breakfast and I'll shoot a shopping list over to you." She says."You're a life saver." You say with feeling as Gareth hands you a plate of food."Just doing my job." Fie says modestly.>Keep training.>Go buy supplements for Rusty.>Do a shift in the Gym.>Other
>>5711735>>Go buy supplements for Rusty.Check supplements for Nika too since she'll be a Steel type too.Razz, Pamtre and Babiri berries along with small dosage metalic solution supplements and some select metal alloy bars.Expect 5k to be burned through.Maybe take the chance to buy more varried berry seeds and the TM for Natural Gif too.Hurry up with that and then.>>Do a shift in the Gym.
>>5711735>>Go buy supplements for Rusty.>>Do a shift in the Gym.
I'll do a pokedex write in on Aron:"Aron the Metal eating pokemon.Known for their hard headedness and innate sturdyness these pokemon will take any opportunity to eat various kinds of metal in order to strenghten their caprace as they grow.Rangers are specially employed to keep them away from railroads and bridges.They shed their caprace twice in preparation for evolution.The first time it occurs within their first week of hatching when they become ready for battle and the second right as they prepare to evolve.They will eat any metal they come across during that period including discarded metal capraces of their own, remains from other steel type pokemon or steel types their parrents bring home as prey such as Forretress.During the Lairon stage they can shed up to 9 times (recorded world record with the largest Alpha being attributed to Gym leader Riley of Hoenns Valley of Steel at 1.8m height and 360kg).The number of times they shed at the Lairon stage determines their final size at the Aggron stage which is when they stop growing significantly lowering their need to eat metal.Where an Aron can eat a small car, a Lairon a large truck Aggron on the other hand are much more fond of eating plant matter, select berries and any prey they hunt down.At all stages it's reccomended to have small chunks of select Steel alloy and Steel type attributed Berries on hand to feed them as it helps them strengthen their capprace and expediate their recovery process after recieving injuries.Shed metal plates of Aggron are an expensive comodity always in demand with the ship building industry thus offsetting the heavy expenses of raising them during their Lairon stage.As with all rock types please beware of feeding them any ammount of everstone before their final evolution as it would end up becoming assimilated as a part of their body thus permanently crippling their growth."
Just re-read the whole quest via archive.It's long but good.Lots of stuff to dive into.2 evil teams possibly led by Hollys and Fies dads.Possible Groudon and Kyogre on top of the known Rayquaza.
>>5711735>>Go buy supplements for Rusty.Maybe grab a few everstone collars while we are at it.>>Do a shift in the Gym.Let's use Sage for today since Blitz is tired.Alternate the two from now on for gym duties.The one we train in the morning gets afternoon play.The one we use for battle gets the rest of the day off for sleep/resting at our parrents home.We can use the free spot on our team to train other mons or play with the ones we need to bond with.For example taking KayO to the beach to let him bask in the sun and play in the sand while relaxing.

>>5712317>>5712335>>5712364After breakfast and armed with some directions from Fie, you set out with Gareth, half-expecting to have to deal with Team Green at every corner.You don't see a one, or any shifty hipsters, for that matter.You get all the way to the store before anyone so much as gives you a second glance and when they do, it's a kid a few years your junior who perks up and waves, fumbling for a poke ball."Hey, either of you fancy a battle?"

The boy replies.This is at least something to go off of."Alright then."

>>5718053Also it lowers special attack.Weshould really teach her Quiver dance soon and work towards Giga drain/Bug buzz/Moonblast
>>5718144Yeah those moves sound pretty nice, we should train her if there's nothing more urgent happening.
>>5718255I'm thinkinkg of doing things like this:>Jet dragon and fire types get training at gym>Rest of our team we use to battle in town (near pokemon center/beach etc.) to make more money (only 20k after a month and we still owe Holly 5k)>Those we don't intend to use for battle that day we just play and chill with. Like letting KayO sunbathe on the beach for example.>Tutoring moves becomes early morning practice routine alongside martial arts training.

>>5719417>>5719418>>5719419>>5719475"Alright, again!" You say.Another wave of shards radiates from Queenie accompanied by a high-pitched whine that sets your teeth on edge and sends Buizel's aura plummeting into the grey.He's out cold and actually sleeping now as the kid recalls him and his shoulders slump."...Good match." He says. "Was that Bug Buzz at the end there?" He asks as Queenie comes and lands on your shoulder.>Maybe?>Do you know, Gareth?>Double check.>I don't know.>Other

>>5720145I'll support the number swapping too. Classic pokemon moment.
>>5720962Itt. He calls us to boast about his shiny rattata.
>>5720077>>5720145>>5720962"It sure sounded like it." You agree, before looking to where Queenie is perched. "Good job."You receive a pleased buzzing of wings in reply."You... wanna trade numbers?" The kid asks, maybe have a rematch sometime?" He asks?>Sure.>Nah.>Other

>>5721132>>5721133>>5721258"Sure." You reply.You swap numbers, before the kid starts."Oh, right. My name's Riley, what's yours?" He asks."Alex." You replied, shaking his hand."Pleased to meet you.""Sorry we can't stick around, but I've kind of got stuff to do and shopping to see to." You add."Hey, no problem." Riley replies with a wave, before you part ways.Looking around, you spot the specialist store you came for, but there're other stores around as well.>Just get what you came for.>Check out the saddlery.>Check out the TM store.>Check out a clothes store.>Other
>>5721949>>Just get what you came for.The rest can wait for after work.Our mons need a rest and we can train up our weaker members like Queenue, Ayumi (Dragon rage op for low level matches) and Coolie by challenging random newbies.
>>5721949>Just get what you came for.
>>5721961>>5722124>>5722205It's tempting to get some new TMs or to look at a saddle for one of your pokemon but instead, you head for the specialist store and after a brief conversation with the clerk, are out five thousand credits for steel ingots, as well as zinc and silver supplements.According to the message Fie sent with the suggestion, Aron can catalyse those metals into something akin to springsteel, which is more or less perfect for lightening Rusty's mass a little and helping him gain an edge in speed.>Keep shopping.>Look for more battles.>Other
>>5723466>>OtherHead back for work at the gym ASAP.Don't want no team green fags to gang up on us either.We can use the evening for a shopping trip.(Op did we hand over the pokeballs and items we relieved from TG to Gym leader Wendy? You didn't state it clearly. If no we need to call Winters.)
>>5723502Fugg forgot tk add>Keep shoppingNatural Gift (AKA berry beam)

>>5724390No, legit curious to see if you'd wait the hour to see if the shop was open.
>>5724394With Gym work and goodboy points to be made with Fie why waste time?Also there are delivery services in Arnet right?Alex can just order it home.
>>5724343>>5724390Nope, you've got stuff to do.This in mind, you and Gareth head back to the gym.When you get there, Fie gives you an outline of a diet for Rusty for the week, then you head down to your spot in the Gym for the regular battles and fire safety lectures.>Roll.

>>5725244>>5725314>>5725326The day... doesn't go especially well.It starts off alright. You lose a couple of battles, but no more than two hours in, you get a smartass in who ignores all your advice and instead of just building a campfire, proceeds to light the pile of kerosene soaked sticks he's built on top of the leaf litter and sets the whole room on fire.You do eventually get it out, but you come out the other side of the fiasco with a burn on your arm and if Fie and the gym staff hadn't come in halfway through, you probably would've punched the guy.As it stands, once the fire's out, the gym staff march the guy, who doesn't seem to understand how he fucked up on top of everything, out."Yeah, sorry about that." Fie says apologetically. "I should've warned you - he's a bit of a serial problem challenger." She confides. "He's never fucked up quite this badly though." She adds. "He was on his last warning, so this won't happen again." She assures."That's something at least." You agree as Fie finishes patching you up.It's your left arm this time, at least, so it evens out Rascal's scratches on your right, but your left arm is going to be basically useless for the next week or so."You want to keep going, or just focus on training for the time being?" She asks. "It's going to take some time to fix this room up either way.">Yeah, I'm good to keep going.>No, I think I'll just focus on training until my arm is healed.>Other
>>5725839>>Yeah, I'm good to keep going.
>>5725839>>Yeah, I'm good to keep going."As long as i have one good arm i can still teach.I'll buy kingsleaf salve later to heal the burn ASAP tho.Hope my leg isn't next."
We on page 9 nao.New bread soon after the next 1 or 2 updates i guess.
>>5725839>>Yeah, I'm good to keep going.+1 on getting medicine laterFor now lightly help with cleanup.Make sure that we teach Sleep spore to Queenie later to put idiots out of commision bfeore they can set the room ablaze again.
>>5725861>>5726015>>5726054"Yeah, I'm good." You assure.Fie nods."Okay. I managed to get Holly an appointment to see a specialist this afternoon. I was going to ask if you'd go with her, but after this, I'm just going to punch the clock for a couple of hours and go with her myself." She says. "You can take it easy this afternoon and train with Gareth.""I thought you said you'd get in trouble for unscheduled absences?" You ask."If they're consistent and for extended periods, sure, but a couple of hours here and there with a good reason attached is another matter." She replies. "Anyway, this'll take about fifteen minutes, so grab a snack if you want one.You take her advice and grab a cup of tea and a couple of biscuits out of the bin on the table in the break room, before heading back when one of the staff come and give you a thumbs up.The rest of the day isn't bad, per se, but all told by the end of it, you've not made any money either.At least Blitz and Sage got some training in, but not much of it.Lunch is fairly uneventful, before Fie and Holly head out for the appointment, leaving you and Gareth to train.>Train a specific pokemon.

>>5726203>>5726206>>5726216After a bit of thought, you decide to train Queenie, focusing first and foremost on seeing if she's actually mastered Bug Buzz or just figured it out and see if you can improve her Special Attack into the bargain.Gareth meanwhile, decides to train his Feebas some.Over the course of the next hour, you do manage to confirm that she's learned Bug Buzz, but it's hard work for her and by the end of it, she's tuckered out and you don't notice any real improvement in the power of the move.Gareth meanwhile has had his Feebas shooting targets with Water Gun as an endurance exercise and has managed to make some progress, but Feebas is likewise looking rather tired.>Keep training (who\what)>Meditate.>See about finding some burn salve for your arm.>Training match.>Other
>>5729040>>Meditate.Probably should have Nika do this with us too if we meditate. Gareth is free to join if he wants to.

>>5729040>>Meditate.With Blitz and Queenie.Tie this in with our injury.Have Blitz show off Morning sun to us (he'll have to get hit by Queenie with Fairy wind so he has something to heal).Try and see if we can learn to heal our selves via aura.Given how often Alex gets injured this ought to be helpfull.Reward both of them with snacks regardless of success.Run this by Gareth first and see if he has any advice.>>See about finding some burn salve for your arm.Regardless if the meditation is a success.Having proper medication stocked up for the journey will be important.
