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 trained, Rusty began to shed, Queenie won a battle and you got your arm burned while working at the gym.
>>5729040>Meditate>Burn Salve>>5729533>>5729536>>5729554"Hey, want to meditate?" You ask, calling over to Gareth."Sure, we could use a break anyway." Gareth agrees, recalling his Feebas, before releasing his Riolu as you release Nika and Blitz to join you.You briefly instruct Blitz to sit and meditate with you before you both settle down and focus.The aura comes easily and you can sense Queenie perk up nearly immediately as Blitz settles in."Don't try and heal yourself, if that's what you're thinking." Gareth advises. "You could just as easily make things worse.""Alright, I'll just go get some burn salve later." You reply."That a much more sensible idea." Gareth agrees, before you're silent as you both focus on the aura and guide your respective pokemon with sensing it.Queenie meanwhile, takes to flying around while you meditate, apparently energised by yours and Gareth's aura and ready to go again.After about an hour, Gareth's watch chimes and you both stand and stretch."...Do you feel any different?" Gareth asks with a frown."A little less sore, but that's about it." You admit."Hm." Gareth says, stroking his chin, before shaking his head. "No, you weren't actively trying anything." He says. "Your body knows what it should be, so just meditating might be speeding up your recovery.""Well that's handy." You admit."It is, but you're probably going to feel really tired in about an hour." Gareth warns.It's only mid-afternoon."Well, I guess I'd better make the most of things now." You reply simply.You step out and head to the break room and locate a first aid kit. A short dig through later and you've located some burn salve and with Gareth's help, changed your dressing to a more thorough one with the addition of more salve. Sure enough, the burn already looks less severe than it did before lunch."What now?" Gareth asks as you pack up.>Keep training Queenie.>Have a practice match.>Go looking for battles.>Train someone else.>Other.
>>5730278>>Keep training Queenie.Try SpA practice.This time using only fairy wind.

>>5730534>>5730535>>5730544"I'm going to keep training with Queenie." You reply."Yeah, I'm going to get to know Wattrel some." Gareth replies, before you head to opposite sides of the arena so as not to get in each others' way.You decide to focus on Queenie's Special Attack and set up a few targets for her before having her use Fairy Wind on them.She hits them pretty consistently hard, but towards the end of the hour, you start seeing a marked increase in just how hard from the force gauges built into them, as you start to feel that meditation session catch up with you as Gareth predicted.It's all you can really do to congratulate Queenie and give her a treat before you all but collapse, only avoiding a face plant thanks to Gareth hurrying over and helping you stumble up to Fie's apartment for a break."See why I advised against meddling with healing just yet?" Gareth asks as he helps you into a seat before going to make a drink as Queenie settles on your head.>It was worth it.>Yeah...>Other
>>5731691>>Yeah...>Other"I think what i'm feeling now is pokemon learn Rest naturally.I'll keep up the practice before sleep the next few days."
>>5731695>>5731710>>5731712>>5731774"Yeah..." You say, tiredly. "Is this what pokemon feel like learning Rest?" You wonder."I doubt it." Gareth replies as the kettle stops and he starts on tea.>Spend time with one of your team.>Take a nap.>Talk with Gareth.>Other

>>5732558>>Spend time with one of your team.Blitz. Use him as a pillow/hugpillow."Naptime buddy">>Take a nap.
>>5732563>>5732576You release Blitz and after getting him to settle down, you convince him to hop up on your lap as Gareth hands you a cup of tea.You're barely halfway through it and some smalltalk about your childhood when you actually nod off.You wake up what feels like seconds later to see Cinder peering down at you curiously at a close enough range to be startling and if it weren't for Blitz keeping you pinned, you might very well have fallen out of the chair."You're in her spot." Fie calls helpfully. "Mind helping with dinner?" She asks.>No problem.>...Why am I still tired?>Other
>>5733704>>No problem.If our tiredness doesn't go away in a few hours we can talk about it.
>>5733708>>5733792>>5733907You're still tired, but you recall Blitz and lurch to your feet, before going to help Fie with dinner.It's nothing complicated - meat and three veg - but that just means there's less to screw up.It doesn't take long for everything to cook and shortly, you're eating and feeling marginally less tired.When you're done, you wash up, before sitting down to another cup of tea courtesy of Gareth.>Ask Holly about her appointment.>Ask Gareth how long you're liable to be tired.>Talk with Fie.>Spend time with one of your team.>Other
>>5734068>>Ask Holly about her appointment.Any diagnosis yet?>>Ask Gareth how long you're liable to be tired.I'm guessing until the burn is healed bit asking just in case.>>Talk with Fie.I think i'm going to have to skip early morning practice tommorow morning.Need to sleep in for at last one day.>Spend time with Fluffy and Fie.

>>5734068>Talk with Fie.
>>5734075>>5734079>>5734199"I think I'm going to skip morning practice tomorrow." You admit to Fie. "I think I need to sleep in at least for one day.""Good." She says. "You've earned it. Plus, it's no good sparring when you've got an injured arm.""How did the appointment go?" You ask, shifting your attention to Holly."Hm? Oh, it went okay. The doctor says I'm going to need orthopedic shoes, but it's nice to know for sure now. Fie and I are going to go get some tomorrow.""Cool." You say, nodding, pleased that Holly's woes insofar as travelling are concerned are now well in hand."When're you going to evolve Blitz?" Fie asks curiously.>Tomorrow.>After I've beaten your or Emma.>I don't know.>Other
>>5736330>>After I've beaten you or EmmaI still have to do more discipline training with him, teach him how to act safely and do some physical training before i consider the evolution.Also he's technically still a puppy, don't feel like rushing it.
>>5736330>>After I've beaten your or EmmaI concur with the other anon, giving him a jump in capability without discipline is a recipe for trouble down the road. I feel like winning a battle against opponents of either of their caliber should let us see how much the discipline training is sinking in.
>>5736330>After I've beaten your or Emma.
>>5736398>>5736477>>5736487"After I've beaten you or Emma." You reply. "Blitz is getting better, but he needs more discipline before I'll be comfortable evolving him to an Arcanine." You reply."Good move." Gareth says with a grimace."Plus, he's still technically a pup. I don't want to rush him." You add."Anyone would think you'd spent all that time in school just studying pokemon." Fie says, shaking her head ruefully. "Have you been cramming, or what's the story?" She asks.>What do you mean?>I mean, it's sort of unavoidable you learn the ins and outs of pokemon health when your mum is a Nurse.>Guilty as charged. If it weren't for all the responsibility at home, I'd have gone on a journey years ago.>Other

"So, all that and a bit of fact checking those journals to make sure they were accurate.""Well, it's kept the number of rookie mistakes from you down to a minimum, so you won't catch me complaining." Fie says."Thanks." You reply, before stifling a yawn.>Keep watching TV.>Bond with Fluffy.>Go to bed.>Other

>>5738828>>5738928You start petting Fluffy while you watch TV.Things are fine to start with, or so you think, until about five minutes later, he's bitten you.It's more of a warning nip, quick and fairly gentle, with no lasting harm, but it gets the point across as you look at him, startled as he huffs and readjusts his position."He's still sore." Gareth notes helpfully. "It's probably a testament to how well you two get along he put up with you petting him for as long as he did." He adds, before the power cuts."Fuck's sake..." Fie grumbles as Cinder's wrists flare, casting a flickering glow through the room."...What was that?" Holly asks, spooked."What was what?" Fie asks."Something just moved near the TV.>Go check.>Use aura sight.>Gareth?>...Nope, I'm going to bed.>Other

She amends. "You think this is a Rotom?""It's a sucker's bet." You confirm."Er... a Rotom?" Gareth asks, non-plussed."Ghost type. They like to play stupid pranks." Fie replies. "Generally involving possessing technology.""This is kind of weak compared to what they can get up to." You add. "You know Rottom if you wanted to prank us you could have done better than just messing with the light switches and TV." You add louder.There's a pause before a flickering yellow and orange blur darts from behind the TV and rushes you.>Roll.

>>5741144>>It must have an owner.Probably Team Green. Now I guess we just battle it.
>>5741144>>It must have an owner.Send out Blitz for a quick Bite attack so the room and furniture don't get destroyed.>OtherPatrol the building and order the present gym staff to be on alert.Normally the Gym should have Dark energy emmiters preventing psychic or ghost pokemon that aren't coded in from entering but TG used the power lines to circumnavigate that.
>>5741155Might be a bit tough to do all of this when tired. Hopefully the others can handle most of the stuff.
>>5741151>>5741155"It must have an owner." You observe."Yeah, which begs the question if this was deliberate or not." Fie replies. "There're defenses built into the Gym to keep Ghosts out and stopping Psychics from reaching in, but that's not quite enough to declare malice just yet." She adds. "Could you go look around, see if you can find any loiterers nearby?"With an air of pragmatism, you release Blitz."Guard that Rotom." You say. "If it tries anything, Bite it."Blitz barks, before sitting down a short distance from the out cold ghost and watching it intently."I can do that." You confirm tiredly.>You coming, Fie?>Mind giving me a hand, Gareth?>Mind giving me a hand, Holly?

She agrees.You nod before the both of you head out, following Cinder while Gareth and Holly stay put watching Rotom."Most logical place to start would be the fusebox." Fie says. "Simultaneously, if that little guy has an owner, then it might be an idea to check the doors." She adds.>Split up>Check the fusebox>Check the doors>Other

You note.Fie nods, before leading you deeper into the gym, past the break room and down towards the basement.On the way, you release Sage to help keep an eye out.When you get down the stares, Sage stiffens, before throwing up a Protect in time to intercept a ball of gunk."What the-" Fie begins, before Cinder has retaliated, striking out with an Aerial Ace and nailing a Misdreavus, only to take a Psybeam in the back from another for her trouble.>Rush the fusebox.>Back Cinder up with Sage.>Back Cinder up with Latias>Cover Fie while Sage and Latias covers Cinder.>Release another pokemon.>OtherSage's moves:ScratchTail WhipEmberPsybeamProtectIncinerateLight ScreenMystical FireCutLatias's moves:CharmHelping HandHeal PulseRecoverConfusionRefreshDragon BreathSafeguardCalm MindAgilityBaton PassPsybeamLight ScreenCutTeam:Rascal (Braviary)Nika (Riolu)LatiasSage (Braixen)Rusty (Aron)Queenie (Cutiefly)

>>5745593>>5745594>>5745609Fie pulls the box open and reaches for the switches as you notice something:]"Wait!" You say, wrenching her back just as a Haunter lunges out of the wall at her."Thanks."

"This way."You head out of the basement, recalling a tired Queenie and Latias owing to the fact she apparently struggled with the door in the first place and follow Fie through the corridors to the security office, Sage and Cinder bringing up the rear.The security system has just finished booting when you enter and Fie wastes no time in cycling the cameras.As it so happens, there were a bunch of masked figures in black bloc trying to break in but the lights coming back on apparently sent them scurrying like roaches.There are, however, plenty more ghosts that got in while the gym's wards were powered down."Right.

"Stole my belt and my team."++Doors are locked, you've just got to corner it."++ Fie assures."Right.""Sage, Light Screen! Block the door!" You order as Purrloin gets close to the door to the foyer - why didn't you close them after you?In response, a barrier springs into existence pulling Purrloin up short and giving you the opportunity you need to retrieve your belt, inadvertantly yanking Purrloin around and hurling it back towards Sage in the process.>Shut the door.>Put your belt back on.>Other
>>5758951>Shut the door.Takes priority since the Purroloin will escape if we hesitate in any way.

>>5758959>>5758995>>5759029>>5759142Seizing the advantage, you kick the door closed, leaving Purrloin's sole way out as past Sage as it rights itself.It looks around, clearly looking for another opportunity to either escape or strike and coming up empty for the moment.>Scratch>Tail Whip>Ember>Psybeam>Protect>Incinerate>Light Screen>Mystical Fire>Cut>Switch
>>5759171>>SwitchSyrumRelease her directly behind Purloin.
>>5759171>Protect>Switch to Syrum
>>5759323>>5759795"Sage, come back." You say, recalling her before releasing Syurm behind the Purrloin, leaving it frustrated again with no opening to exploit.It recoils as it spots her behind it, backing towards you now.>Grab Purrloin.>Syurm, use...>Just catch it.>OtherSyurm's moves:TackleString shotProtect Sticky WebElectro WebToxicToxic SpikesSynthesisSecret PowerRazor LeafHardenCut
>>5760076>Syurm, use...>String shotWe can catch it too if any other anons want to, but I'm not sure what we can do with a Purrloin.
>>5760096To clarify: 'catching' in this context has more to do with the fact you've got to round up and carry the wild pokemon up somehow.Fie'll reimburse you later on this.Unless you really want a Shuppet, Koffing and Purrloin.
>>5760076>Sticky WebMake sure to lure the cat into the webs path by distracting it and then siginal Syrum to web it.
>>5760110Purloin is cool with me.Prankster Dark type.If it's a girl we can see about having her learn Attract so we can chase down some stray Litten.Besudes i think Alex can do with some carving practice since he does have a crafting kit.Hope we get an Aprijuicer too (stack gains from it with pokeblocks on both Alex and oyr pokemon).

>>5761035>>5761037>>5761045>>5761046"String Shot!" You order.Purrloin actually looks visibly frustrated now as whatever it was trying to do is foiled and this frustration turns to a pout as it's swiftly entombed in string.It's struggling though, trying to cut its way out.>Take it to Fie with the others.>Hit a move.>Catch it.>Other.Syurm's Moves:TackleString shotProtectSticky WebElectro WebToxicToxic SpikesSynthesisSecret PowerRazor LeafHardenCut
>>5761673>>Hit a move.Tackle to withle it down slightlyThen>>Catch it.We need a dark type anyway.Was going to suggest adopting a Houndour from the ones we saved from TG.
>>5761679You do have a Murkrow.
>>5761683Thought we passed her on to dad as a nightguard.
>>5761689It was floated, but I don't believe it was ever finalised.It's been a while though, I'll admit.
>>5761673>Take it to Fie with the others.Again I'm not against catching it, but I don't see what we could do with a Purrloin. Could make a good house pet I think, or could be nice for our siblings to have.>>5761722Yeah I don't really remember us specifically sending her to James as a nightguard.If someone could link the thread were this was discussed and/or done it would be appreciated.
>>5761839I remember us mentioning the idea to James.
>>5761839+1 on catching it and taking it to Fie later.Let's clean sweep the last room first after checking up our team.
>>5761839>>5763117Okay, roll twice.First roll is for catching Purrloin, since it's still got some fight in it.

>>5763440>>5763455>>5763499You're way too tired for this.You throw a poke ball at Purrloin before it can escape and are rewarded when the ball clicks and vanishes.There's only one room left to check in the course.Going through the mocked up kitchen you come out into Fie's Gym arena...Where you find a Gengar waiting for you.Whether it's wild like the other pokemon and just took advantage of the break in the gym's defenses or someone's pokemon here for a more sinister purpose, you can't tell, but you're pretty sure this is the last one.It better fucking be. It looks like a pretty formidable pokemon.Also, you want to go to bed.>Go, Sage.>Go, Latias.>Go, Rascal.>Go, Queenie.>Go, Ayumi.>Go, Syurm.>Go, Poke Ball.
>>5764032>>Go, Poke Ball.Ambush it first. Throw a rock or something oposite of you then the ball at its back.If that fails have Rascal at the ready.>Go Rascal
>>5764032>Go, Rascal.I wonder when the sleep deprivation is going to hit us. If it hasn't already.
>>5764191Probably right after Alex gets to sit or kie down.Get that Gengar and time to head back (Alex too tired to realize shares a bed with Fie over night).>>5764071+1
