>>876860>No electricity pun in the titleI'm shocked
>>876873[Ohm sorry. I guess when it comes to puns I need to amp it up.]
WaitIf it no longer has dry skin would that mean the water on helioisk has a chance of KOing it if it tries to use a water move?
>>876882Is this how its gonna be? Please, enlightning me.>>876885I doubt that unless it rolls a 1s. If Pachirisu uses an AoE electric move it might though.

The gym leader doesn't seem to know anything about Bella. She's not native to the region, so you can't blame him.“Sorry, Jonbuddai. But whatever you’re setting up, it won’t help.” He waves a hand. “The next water blast is going to be a big one. And with Heliolisk’s dry skin, we’ll keep coming back while your pokemon get worn down.. It was unlucky that this was your first gym.”Hana watches from the sideline. Her robotic hand squeezes an indent into the metal bleachers.Gobble wheezes and leans over. Using Focus Punch twice in a row took a lot out of his stamina. But if he pushes himself now, he might be able to finish Heliolisk. If he catches his breath though, he’ll be more flexible and effective.“Heliolisk! Make sure to get as much water as you can, then let that Munchlax have it!”Uh oh. Gobble will need to move quickly to pull anything off before that happens, and he’s not exactly fast.>Tell Gobble to just sit back and catch his breath>Tackle Heliolisk!

>>877173Nah. We've got other boards and lewdbins if we want to scratch that itch. No need to take unnecessary risks.
The water cannon fires. Or waters. Whatever a water cannon does.“Take it easy, Gobble.” You tell him. “Just catch your breath.” It sounds cold, but the simple truth is that he can take a beating if it comes to it.Heliolisk is drenched in the heavy soaking water. It doesn’t do any damage, but it nearly plows him over like an umbrella caught in an unexpected wind. He was expecting it to feel differently.The amount of water this time doesn’t let up, either. The arena is flooding, with a pool of water rapidly spreading from Heliolisk.“Heliolisk! What’s wrong?”The lizard pokemon doesn’t seem to know. It doesn’t feel refreshed at all. “They’re up to something. Use Electrify on that plant Pokemon!”Bella is enveloped in a glowing, yellow sheen. Does this mean her next move will be electric?About a half inch of water rushes over everyone’s feet. Pachirisu exposes it’s back to Bella and prepares to attack Gobble. As far as it knows, it has nothing to fear from her.>Pin Missile Pachirisu while it’s guard is down>Growth.

“Superfang that Munchlax!”The little squirrel Pokemon kicks up a small trail of water into the air as it takes off. It’s tiny feet ripple against the water like a handful of pebbles. Gobble is caught almost completely off guard at such a quick moving attack. Pachirisu opens it’s jaw.It’s front paws land on one of the few pebbles that are near Gobble and it skids out. Pachrisu comes to a flopping stop right in front of Gobble.“Bella! Use Mega Drain on Heliolisk!”“Sorry Jonbuddai, but with Electrify, that attack-”Heliolisk is electrified by the strange attack. Bella soaks in the health while he goes down.You also notice that all the Pokemon on the field takes a small amount of electric damage. It’s just a little, but none of the expect it.“Heliolisk! Pachirisu!” He quickly retrieves his Heliolisk in it’s Pokeball. “So, the slick mainlander thinks he’s hustling me, huh? Well, we’ve got a surprise for you and your grass type tricks! Go! Emolga!”Gobble looks down and the prone Pachirisu in front of him.>Focus Punch! Hope you’re fast enough.>Tackle. Can’t go wrong there>Metronome. Unleash the luck!

“Emolga! Air Slash!"The flying pokemon fires a thin slice of air at Belladonna. But she leans down to see her reflection in the water better and it misses. A thin column of water refracts at almost the same angle from the impact.“Gobble! Chip Away! Do your best!”Gobble leans over his target. Pachirisu tries to scramble away, but a fist lands in it’s back first. It’s not the most graceful or powerful use of the move, but it hurts.Pachirisu pushes itself up before it’s the the victim of another attack. It looks at Gobble angrily as it tries to stretch the pain out of it’s backBella watches Emolga flying over and stops back a few paces. She has no idea how to deal with her new opponent.The water cannon takes aim at Gobble.>Ignore it, Mega Drain Pachirisu>Swap her for Mace>Use Worry Seed on Emolga>Growth>Pin Missile.

“Bella, good job, but return for now. Go, Mace!”Bella gives a questioning look, but seems to understand at the last second as you retrieve her. Mace appears in the inch deep water. His speaker-like hearing apparatus that is his face quickly homes in on Emolga.“Pachirisu! Let them have it! Discharge!A huge blast of electricity bursts from the small pokemon and hits everyone else. Emolga seems to enjoy a boost of some sort, Mace takes the blow in surprise, and Gobble is struck hard. He smokes and takes a knee before stopping himself from falling over. He’s paralyzed now, too.Gobble slips the berry into his mouth and eats. As he does, the water cannon blows over him, soaking him completely.“Tables have turned, my tricky friend. It’s time to amp things up! Emolga! Use Agility!”You’d better act quickly. His speed advantage is starting to make a difference.The water level is getting higher now. A few inches. It’ll be difficult for those on the ground to move quickly.>Metronome!>Have Gobble throw Mace into the air>Have Gobble splash up a protective wall of water>Chip away (specify target)>Amnesia, they’ll probably try to focus him now>Try Last Resort.

Emolga finishes Agility, doing a respectable job. “Good job, Emolga! You know what’s next. Get ready for Electro Ball”You’re not sure what that move has to do with extra speed, but it’s worrying you. You decide to roll the dice and hope for the best. “Gobble! Metronome!”Gobble waggles his fingers, back and forth. He looks up to Emolga this time and unleashes his attack! You brace yourself for it!Encore?Encore! It’s Encore!“Fuck yeah!” You hear Hana yell. She quickly covers her mouth. “I mean, yay.” She turns to the mother with her child and starts apologizing profusely.“Good job, Gobble.”The gym leader unleashes his own stream of profanity, but quickly stops when the mother turns her glare on him.“Oh I don’t need more complaints.” He cones his mouth. “Emolga. Just concentrate on staying out of things until it wears off. Pachirisu, it’s up to you to keep them busy.”Mace wants to show his battle power here too.

“Pachirisu! Discharge again!”The tiny Pokemon unleashes another blast of electricity. Using it twice in a short period seems to take a lot out of it, because the blast isn’t as strong. The first to be hit is Emolga as it passes over while using Agility. It’s move at an insane speed now.Next is Mace. The electricity washes over him and he rolls back a few paces before righting himself and shaking it off.Last is Gobble. It’s a weak blow, but with the soaking he took it almost takes him down. If it weren’t for that Sitrus berry, he’d be out. But as it stands now he’s only a strong wind away from falling over. The paralysis isn’t helping either.Pachirisu takes a very small amount of damage too.“Mace! Rock Blast!”Mace leans down in the water and fires rocks like artillery. With each blast, a rippling shockwave goes out through the water he’s standing in. Despite Emolga’s blinding speed, Mace can track it with his fantastic hearing.The water cannon moves to target Gobble, but he’s almost the same distance away from it as Pachirisu. With his poor speed, paralysis, and the inches of water, he can't move quickly.>Chip Away Pachirisu! Go all out!>Metronome again!>Focus Punch Pachirisu.

Emolga zooms by again and uses Agility. That encore won’t last much longer, and it’s speed has gotten absurd.“Gobble! Chip away Pachirisu!”Gobble starts running forward. Through the water. Through the paralysis and exhaustion. Through the pain. He pushes forward and puts his momentum into it. His blow hits Pachirisu on it’s lower half, but it still lifts off the ground and flops it’s belly onto a pile of jagged stones a good distance away.Gobble leans over, then falls to his knees. He’s completely exhausted.“Great job, Gobble!” Another heavy shower of water hits Gobble. It gently pushes him over. He takes his time and a lot of effort getting himself up.“You too, Pachirisu. Good job.” He takes out a pokeball and pulls his pokemon back. “It’s up to you Emolga.”You think Encore might be wearing off now.Rock Blast seems like a given. But with Emolga’s speed, you’re worried. Speed seems important to that Electro Ball move he mentioned.>Time a dodge for Emolga’s next swoop. You can attack after>Don’t worry about it. Use Rock Blast.

“Mace! Aim for his attack! Intercept it!”“Smart idea, but can you keep up with our speed? Emolga! Electro Ball!”Mace fires a barrage of Rock Blasts. The first rock shaves off the top, then a bit of the bottom, then part of the side. It gets reduced to a small fraction of it’s part.But what’s left is still incredible. It pierces right through Mace, then explodes. Mace is sent flying in an arc forward, and comes crashing down a few feet away. He bursts a little energy to quickly right himself, but he looks hurt. That move is really, really strong.Gobble is on all fours. He very, very slowly pushes himself up to his feet. He doesn’t seem to have much of anything left. If you swap him with Bella, though, he’ll still be considered out. He might not even stay up after using another move even if he's not hit.This is bad. Emolga can finish either one of them off now. And Bella doesn't have any effective attacks to deal with it either. You might have three pokemon, but they're all in deep trouble.>Doesn’t matter. Withdraw Gobble and send in Belladonna>Use Chip Away! A good hit might finish this>Metronome. You just need a little more luck>Have him toss Mace.

>>878733>tfw he evolves and naturally learns Pulverizing Pancake
“Gobble! Last Resort!”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhJ6bE4z5vsTechnically you haven’t used all his other moves yet, but you vaguely remember reading somewhere that it was a misnomer. That most Pokemon can use it after using at least three other moves. You hope it was three, anyway.“Emolga, forget the Roggenrolla for now! Finish that one!”Emolga comes flying done. Gobble yells. No, roars. It’s deep and primal. He puts everything he has into launching himself upwards.He flies through the air at the much quicker, nimbler Emoga. Emolga spins in the air and whips Electro Ball.It’s a hit! Dead on! Emolga’s face brightens. But it’s quickly overcome with a shadow. Gobble is still coming it it.Hana leaps to her feet, lifting herself up a few extra feet in the air than intended. The scolding mother gives her space.WHAM! Gobble’s exposed belly whaps the flying pokemon out of the air. Hey both come crashing down with Gobble on top.“Gobble!” You run out to him and roll him over soe he’s not laying face down in the water. He’s clearly out. You’re suddenly filled with a panic. Pokemon get knocked out all the time, but he wash pushing himself really hard. What if you overdid it?The gym leader walk over quickly, withdrawing Emolga without looking. He keeps his eyes on you and Gobble.>Calm down. Tell him he did well, then ask for a badge.>Run him to the pokemon center, now!>Ask for the gym leader’s help>Something else
>>878786>Ask for the gym leader’s helpWHAT DO
>>878786>>Ask for the gym leader’s help
>>878786>Run him to the pokecenterGOBBLE NO, YOU WANTED IT TOO BAD
>>878786>Something else>Don't panic, check his condition before doing something drastic
>>878786>Run him to the pokemon center, now!Denis Pirta
>>878786>>Run him to the pokemon center, now!
>>878786>Pokemon center. Now.No time for discussion, we have to fix him, forget the badge for now.
>>878786>>Ask for the gym leader’s helpAHHHHHHHH HYPE AS FUCK
>>878786>Ask for the gym leader’s help
>>878786>Ask for the gym leader’s help"Hey, did I overdo it? I'm a bit worried about Gobble... I don't want to push him too hard."
>>878786>Run him to the pokemon center, now!
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>878786>Hey both come crashing down with Gobble on top.Ahem
>>878802That screencap is full of shit
>>878825I do love me some sabrina
You’ve got to do something! “Calm down.” He puts a hand on Gobble. “He’s fine. Let him rest for awhile, but don’t worry.”“Are you sure?” Oh no oh no oh no what’d you do?He looks at you like you’ve just said something terrible about his mother. “Jonbuddai, I am an internationally certified gym leader. This isn’t some two bit operation. Trust me. I would shut down the match if there were any danger. He’s totally alright. Here, I’ll show you how you can tell.”He points out some signs on a pokemon and explain that they have very distinct signs for these sorts of things.“I have to hand it to you. You battled very well. And your concern for your pokemon’s well being is genuine, even if you have a lot to learn.” He reaches into his jacket pocket. “I hereby award you with the Energy badge, this prize money, and TM72; Volt Switch.”Mace comes up and nudges you to get out of your stupor. You won. You won! You reach up for the badge and other stuff.“But,” he pulls it back, “the next time you suspect you’re pushing a pokemon too hard, you retrieve him, alright? No battle is worth losing your way.” That last part sounds like a proverb. You nod. He smiles. “You should be proud. And reward your pokemon after they’ve healed. It’s very rare that anyone beats this as their first gym.”“Gym’s not that old, boss.” The technician says as he positions a ladder below the water cannon.“Hey! Come on. I’m sounding cool here. And it's still true! Just check it over and lets do the next battle before the storm hits.”[That’s it for tonight, folks. Thanks for coming. I say this every week, but I’m really going to try to run again before the weekend. I’ve worked absurd hours at work to keep pace and I’m hoping it pays off finally.]
>>878879Thanks Gobble, you're the best! Fun as always.
>>878879Thanks for running! This thread was electrifying
>>878884>>878890[Thanks for coming!]>>878888[Nice get]
>>878879Thanks gobble, luck at work
>>878879Thanks for running, Gobble.
>>878879Whoo! Dodged a bullet there. Thanks for running Gobble as always
>>878879Thanks for running, Gobble. As always, I'm looking forward to the next one.
>>878901I'm glad Herb got to learn some things. And I'm looking forwards to seeing how Hana does! We should record her match for Keira to watch.Hope to see you guys again soon! Sleep well Gobbs!
>>877245So, did they get banned then?
>>878901I named my Muchlax after you Gobble. <3
We all have different tastes in favorite waifu, but which one would you like the least?
>>879643So far, Jane. She has potential to become a very good friend but right now she's just an asshole.
>>879643Jane will never be waifu. Rival and friend sure, but never waifu.Keira also strikes me as someone I'd rather just have as a good friend.
>>879643Jane or Hana. Now don't get me wrong, I like both characters, but Hana is Robin 2: Electric boogaloo
>>879643To put it bluntly, Valerie seems boring. She's just sort of there most of the time, and I can't see anything meaningful coming out of waifuing her.Though to be honest, I also dislike the idea of waifuing Laki for similar reasons to those that other people have in not wanting to waifu Hana. The relationship with Laki would pretty much be exactly the same as the Robin/Kat relationship except reversed. Don't get me wrong; I like her and want to help her work through her problems, but I'd prefer a relationship with a different dynamic than what we had last time, and just reversing it doesn't count.
>>879725I wouldn't write off Valerie yet, we haven't really done anything with her alone. Also John is pretty different from Robin in that he isn't super insecure.
>>879643That's a hard one because there really isn't anyone I actively dislike in that aspect. I don't have any strong preferences either. I mean, I would really like to see Polu at least presented as an option though. It's just a shame that the format will really only let us do one playthrough.Right now we're just getting to know everyone. Not just in character, but as a group.And something I don't think we've talked about: We may end up dating more than one person. There isn't always a second date, and it may turn out that the romantic feelings just aren't there. We're going for a coming of age theme this time around, and the idea that relationships can change and still have value is a powerful one for a kid to learn. A good way for Herb to figure out his feelings might be to just ask someone out and see how it goes.
>>879767Polu is probably the character I want Herb to hang out with the most, but if our main date is gonna be getting lewdbins I just don't wanna read about two guys going at it.I pretty much agree with everything else, but if a romantic option doesn't work then things might get weird.
>>879767I really agree with that. I can actually see Herb and someone dating for a bit and it ending in an amicable way. It fits the theming well too.The anon butthurt would be intense, though. Overturning a "route lock" would be a hell of a shitstorm.
>>879643Jane. She's a turbobitch with serious psychological problems.As for the other four, my guess is they'll set up a rotation for the order Herb plants his seeds in each week. If he's really lucky, he might get a day off to recover once in a while.
>>879725Any similarities are largely superficial. Same with people calling Hana Robin.
>>879799Yeah, that would be the real reason I don't see it happening even if could make sense. We all know John is gonna cook for everyone anyways.>>879813She is gonna be Robin at first, but that is just slang for shy. Once we crack that shell like the battles have start to do we will get to see how much of a degenerate she really is.
>>879817Don't misunderstand me I don't like her and her being a degenerate would lower my opinion of her.
>>879767Gobble just needs to start making VNs so we can play all the routes
>>879643Jane by far.
>>879853That would be amazing, but wouldn't Gobble go nuts from the lack of participation?
>>879853I think the noncanon lewdbins are as close as we will get.
>>879853>>879864>>879870>Can't post, but yes. I'd love to do a VN. Messed with Renpy before and am confident in making something semi-usable. Can't into art, though.FIND HIM AN ART MONKEY
>>879877>himHere we go again
>>879881I WAS TYPING QUICKLY AND DIDN"T CHECK THE PRONOUNSGobble is a lesbian lumberjacking turkey
>>879864that's a price i'm willing to pay
I'm sad no one likes Jane all that much she is my favorite
>>879799I don't think we'll actually route-lock until we give the blue feather. The soufflé that is.>>879773I think it'd be fun to have Herb exploring his sexuality just as much as I though it was fun when Val was thinking about her own. How arousing I personally find it doesn't matter as much as the character development. There'll be plenty of varied smut regardless of what we do.>>879877Coming soon to Steam?
>>879884I use to hate her, now I just strongly dislike her. She could be a fun rival / friend down the line, but as a waifu she just doesn't seem likely.
>>879643Jane, mostly because she's a bitch right now. I'm hoping we can help her and prove that Herb isn't an evil mastermind, but it won't kill me if she stays paranoid. After that, Laki. Not a fan of bullying as a dynamic in a relationship, and the way she reacts to failure is unhealthy. Like Jane, I'd like to help her, but not waifu her
>>879894>I think it'd be fun to have Herb exploring his sexuality just as much as I though it was fun when Val was thinking about her own. How arousing I personally find it doesn't matter as much as the character development. There'll be plenty of varied smut regardless of what we do.Some anons might find this offensive, but I can see Laki just sort of "making a man" out of Herb without a relationship.
>>879951I just want to play a mild, effeminate guy who's good at cooking and fashion and actually embraces these things instead of it being seen as a quest to turn him into some sort of alpha male.
>>879951Yeah, she seemed down for a fling with Val, so I can see there being circumstances where she'd be down for a fling with Herb.I think the real question is whether that's something he would want to do too. And honestly I could see him going either way. I doubt he has any deeply held religious beliefs about saving himself for marriage, but I think he probably has a solid grip on knowing whether he'd be able to keep those romantic and sexual feelings separate or not. And if he would want that kind of relationship. He's still pretty young, and I think he realizes that. Personally, I'd like to see some time pass between Herb beginning a relationship and taking it to that level.Being suddenly thrust into a very new situation and deciding whether to wait or explore will be interesting, whichever way it goes. I just don't want John to be some sort of fuckchamp right out of the gate.
>>879985Whoops, that was meant for >>879920
>>879989I just want to protect Herb's purity
>>879985Hell yeah. I want us to be the mom-friend that encourages and supports everyone else. It feels like right now we're doing gyms because we want our pokemon to be able to explore their options, and because we need the money to support them. It's not about proving something or glamour. I really like that. That we're pretty good at it speaks largely to our ability to draw out the potential in our pokemon, and that's pretty cool.Too bad we can't use the tm we got. Maybe we can pawn it off, or trade it in? Unless we want to work on a complete set, that is. That'd be a cool, tangible goal.
All the girls are terrible, we all know who is the right girl in the endyeah yeah I already know there is no pokedating
>>880013God, this picture really drives home how scary pokemon really are. You, as a trainer, are almost certainly outnumbered by creatures for whom the elements bend to their will. They are at least as smart as you are, and scarier still, have their own desires and goals. The only power you have over them is a small red ball. Don't have it on you? Too bad buddy. It'd be hard enough fighting someone a bit taller than you, let alone a telekinetic, telepathic woman that can stand up from a charging Rhydon and break boulders with her fists. If I were Brendan here, I would be terrified.
>>880075>If I were Brendan here, I would be terrifiedYup. Terrified and aroused
This is going to get some hate probably, but I actually really like Laki the most and Kiera to a lesser extent. Some of it is fetish (muscle girls) but I also really resonate with her character as presented in the story. I wasn't an olympic athelete or anything, but I can still relate to what she's gone through. She's also hot as hell and the lewd bullying is toptier
>>880075>It'd be hard enough fighting someone a bit taller than you, let alone a telekinetic, telepathic womanWhy fight it? Just let it happen.Unless struggling is your fetish, in which case I understand.
>>880081>>880092The fear boner is an acquired, but refined form of arousal. Danger, like sex, reminds us that we are alive, and so we are doubly enthralled when we combine the two and are doubly awakened to our senses.I guess that, assuming the two are engaged in some sort of erotic role play, it'd be pretty damn hot. Especially since there's the aspect of having to really trust your partner to know your limits and not hurt you, even when you make yourself vulnerable.
>>880088I feel you bro I like Laki a lot as well. I don't really agree with people saying she's too close to Kat. As characters they are motivated by very different needs and wants. >>879643I think Valerie has had the least characterization of all the girls. So, I'd say she is the one I'd like the least to see Herb end up with at the moment. I'm personally looking forward to learning about all the characters before Herb gets too romantic. I'm not even sure he'd be an initiator of any romantic relationship.
>>880108I was guilty of generalizing too, but yeah Laki is by no means a Kat clone.
>>880104Why is sharpedo so pissed whenever gardevoir makes a move
>>880148Sharpedo loves him too
>>880148Because she's moving in on her man.
>>880152>why doesn't master respond that way to me but responds so happily to a fucking shark
>>880181>Because the shark doesn't try to rape him every single day like you do you cunt, sweet fuck.
>tfw we will never fugg a shark in this quest>Gobble said no
>>880329Huh, not as relevant as I wanted it to be and a lot more mean-spirited than I remembered. Sorry dude
>>880291I miss Attack on Pokémon HunterWhen we getting a Seel and naming it Cerulean?
>>880331Es okay. I understood you, senpai.
>>880343Oh FFS. Yes it was good, but the QM was a fucking DICK. Seriously you could tell, especially by the end that the dipshit had bitten off more than he could chew, what with trying to run three different games at the same time.
>>880372so?I liked the setting and the writing was good. If I get the chance, I'd like to play a game in the setting IRL.Not trying to start a shitstorm, just was thinking that the picture looked like it could be a character in it.
>>880271We'll just make our own lewdbins, with sharkfugging and gay Polu.
>>878901>>880291Gobble... gobble plz
>>880398Yeah, with hookers and blackjack too! On second thought forget the lewdbins.
>>880398Be the smut you want to see in the world, anon!
>>880104>>880148>>880152I get the impression that the Sceptile occasionally has to go to a Pokemon bar and chat with the bartender about all the bullshit he deals with on his team.
>>881298Probably.Guess he only sticks around because no choice and the food's good.He'd probably work out getting paid if he could.
>>880838[If you want to bang a girl in a sharksuit I'm game.]
>>881716>Herb dresses the girls in cosplay.>Laki is sharpeedo.Or she would also make a good pangoro
>>881716well now I'm hoping there's some kind of native festival where everyone dresses up like a pokemonNow, which pokemon does each waifu choose? Jane would probably choose an pseudo legendary or pokemon featured in the native mythology.
>>881716If we want to bang a boy in a shark suit, are you game? 'Cause I'm not gonna keep pushing for it if I know it isn't something you'd do. I don't remember you saying anything about it before.But yeah, that sounds hot.Yesterday made me wonder though... just what sort of specs do Hana's prosthetics have, anyways? She's obviously far beyond human strength. And what sort of power source does she use? Don't worry if you'd prefer to reveal details in-character.
>>881741Tapu Lele for Jane, Duskull for Keira, Sharpedo for Laki, A-Raichu for Polu, Nihilego for Val, and... Volcarona for Hana?
>>881743[If anons want to bang a boy, that's fine by me as long as they're patient with my probably hilariously bad understanding of boylove.]>just what sort of specs do Hana's prosthetics have, anyways? She's obviously far beyond human strength[Hana didn't ask for this.]
>>881756>hilariously bad understanding of boyloveWell it's hard to understand if you don't have a penis. If you want, I could teach you a few things, Gobble
>>881743boylove a shit
>>881755>Tapu Lele for JaneWhy would you disrespect Tapu Lele like that.
>>881755Val would be Vespiqueen, Liligant, or Tsareena
>>881755depending how much we can get Hana to come out of her shell, a Krabby or Clauncher would be cool costumes. Plus, she could replace her arm with a giant crushing claw for emergencies. It can already bend metal, imagine what it could do with the right design
>>881755Actually to continue a theme Laki might make a good roserade
>>881768I mean seriously, look at this adorable thing. Don't try associating it with a horrible bitch like Jane.
>>881806This region might not have the same guardian deities of a fairly remote region. I doubt the Tapus are even known outside Alola.
>>881756>[If anons want to bang a boy, that's fine by me as long as they're patient with my probably hilariously bad understanding of boylove.]Eh, I won't know any better. I regret not experimenting more back when I had the chance.>[Hana didn't ask for this.]I'm just wondering if we'll have to worry about psi during a handy J or handholding.
>>881806its currently one of the queens of the meta, so it fits the tryhard aspect, that said its capricious nature and habit of sprinkling random people with what sounds like a combination of hyper potion and crystal meth doesn't really fit jane.personally I'd recommend a toxapex/mareanie for jane.
>>881721>everyone expects Herb to have an amazing costume of some awesome pokemon>he dresses like a Bidoof
>>881827I think he'd make a good Eevee. Laki molesting fluffy collared herb.
>>881827If there is a Pokemon ball I'm fully supporting Eevee
>>881834I'm dumb meant for >>881830Either way we need to make sure it cleans easy since there is gonna be lots of food.
>>881830I want it too much
>>881830>>881841good lord you two are amazing
>>881830As much as a sexually domineering girlfriend is a turn-on, there's some things that could go with it that'd be nice to. Being taken out on nice dates, getting surprised with flowers. That sort of thing would be pretty damn cute.
>>881850I don't disagree. Just warming Laki up to dates and flowers might take awhile. Hana would probably combust. Keria might not get it. Jane would assume it was a trap.>>881845Hell as I see it now Herb hasn't really made a choice on his attitude yet. Gobble said he didn't really have an aura iirc.So he's an Eevee. We'll see what eeveelution her turns out to be, or if he keeps his adorable neck fluff.
>>881855Speaking of, what do you think Herb's Evee evo of choice with be? We could do Flareon lads! in this system it would finally be not terrible!
>>881863Umbreon is my choice, friendship fits Herb and I like it more than Sylveon and Espeon.
>>881863Personally I am a fan of Espeon
>>881863Jolteon is my Jam. It Herb gets competative I could see a Faleron/Jolteon. If he mellows out vaporeon.If he goes native maybe a leafion? If he continues his fashion pretty boy stuff he could become dragon killer adorable fluff of nightmares.
>>881872>>881868Patrician tier choices.>>881873>>881863>Liking garbage.
>>881855I don't think I made myself clear. I want them to take us on dates, get us flowers, etc. I want Herb to feel absolutely treasured. Of course it wouldn't have to be a one way street either.
>>881868My favorite based on looks >>881872I have fond memories of the Johto evos from coliseum >>881873Jolteon is the best outta the original three
>>881873>Competative>Flareon and JolteonDon't make me laugh so much anon.>>881879This isn't waifu wars at all, it is the Herb Bowl!
>>881878Hey man, Flareon isn't my favorite. It just always gets shit on.
>>881884I meant personality wise. E.G. Lively/Firey/Go getter.Those two are the hyped ones.
Herb will be adorable no matter which way you spin it.
>>881886I dunno, friendship evos seem right up Herb's alley.>>881892I feel like it would be in the top 3 fits, but other fairies fit Herb too and my autism will kill me if we have as many overlapping types as we did last quest.
>>881892I'd agree, but I want the bee as our fairy type.
>>881879Oh. Laki bringing Herb flowers would be the cutest fucking thing ever.
>There is no waifu war>Only Herb-Bowl[I don't know how to feel.]>>881904[She'd die. She loves to dominate, but secretly she also wants to be head patted like a cute girl]
>>881917You can't keep doing this us. At this rate you are going to be forced to right more lewdbins than threads.
>>881896I know what you mean. I was super satisfied with myself when my in-game team for Sun ended with a full twelve types.I kind of hope we get our fairy or bug (or fairy/bug) by egg. It was super adorable being papa to an egg and once Bella evolves and gains some more independence I expect empty nest syndrome to hit hard.
>>881918*write.I feel sick from making that mistake
>>881917pic related >>881920I had one repeat typing for Moon team, which was bug. I needed the bee and wimpod
>>881917Imagine: Herb is mad at Laki but forgives her. He gives her a peck on the cheek/forehead and tells her she's "lucky she's so cute."I want Herb and his partner to cater to each other's little emotional needs, and express their desires to each other clearly. Because they trust each other enough to open up.You're right captch, I'm not a robot. I'm a man. With MAN FEELINGS.
>>881917>head pattedyou're lucky you spoilered that mister, ur on thin ice
>>882080imagine holding hands and having face to face, missionary sex with Keirareminder that we need to get her to show us her face without paint
>>882118for the sole purpose of procreation?
>>882118What if that was some kind of HUGE taboo for a priestess? Like excommunicated kind of shit?
>>882123The absolute only reason
>>882123of course you heathenI'm disgusted that you would suggest doing it for any other reason
>>882118How about passionate, hungry, competitive sex with Jane that ends as a mess of bodily fluids, their hot and sweaty bodies lie in a heap together holding hands.
>>882118>>882123You want her to show us her face without paint for the sole purpose of recreation?You degenerates.
>>882132it's not really that big of a deal, to her it's more like showing a guy her tits, and her tits are like if any of us were showing out faceat leas that's the way I understood it
>>882132hotThough I highly doubt that would be true. Gobble has said that the islands are much more accepting of sex. Even with priesthood, people are allowed to live life to the fullest, at least Ghost priests. It doesn't seem like it would be all that bad for a priestess to either marry or have children. >>882153Only if it starts with Jane trying to one up Herb's innocent attempts to befriend her.>>882167>not wanting the paint to get smeared off during the act>not wanting to see her reaction to finding out about the lack of paint>not wanting her to trust Herb enough to have him help apply her paint
>>882180jesus I forgot about that facehave some eye bleach
>>882180Wow that mallow face is bad
>>882180But of course, Herb is just being nice, she escalates and assume we are trying to honeypot her. Also naked apron is my fetish we need more of it.
>>882194I acknowledge my mistake>>882197you are a man of excellent taste anon
>>882197>>882204Naked apron laki struggling to cook morning after breakfast
>>882197I bet Herb has an apron.I'm just excited for when Herb, in an attempt to assure Hana that he is, in fact, attracted to her, tells her to "feel how excited he is." He grabs her wrist and guides her hand over his heart. It's beating fast.
>>882204Only thing I like more is thigh highs>>882206Cute but knowing Laki it might be Herb in the naked apron cooking morning after breakfast while she has the same look in her face that lecherous old men get.
>>882206Naked apron Keira and laki struggling to cook morning after breakfastIt's no Golden combo, but I think it could work
>>882180So this is what they call a "butterface".
>>882214can Lusamine be the image for ValerieI don't care that she is 40, she looks like she's 18
>>882730We have Lillie though
>>882748and she is ugly by comparison
I will protect Herb's purity and innocence
>>882765>Lusamine being a bitchHonestly, if it weren't for the happy kid game tone, the SM games would have been an outright lovecraftian horror story.Lusamine was once a loving and caring mother, but it's implied that at some point before the events of the game (based on what Wicke says about her and the Nihilego data about afflicted people) she might have encountered a Nihilego near a wormhole and changed completely into her current attitude: selfish, uncaring, narcissistic, and utterly obsessed with piercing the veil that separates our world and Ultra Space. That entire premise is one good writer and some themes of sanity and madness away from being straight up Lovecraft.
>>882868She changed when her husband got sucked into the UB world
>>882877>She changed when her husband got suckedIt happens.
>>882868So what's the deal with Kartana? It's just, like, origami? I was kind of dissapointed because it was so small and couldn't tank hits like buzzwole could. Like, I think Guzzlord looks a little ridiculous but at least it cuts an intimidating figure.And just what the hell is the deal with Anabel? Can we ever know? All this Ultra stuff just raises questions on top of questions. Makes you realize just why eleven year olds need to command a platoon of monsters. To protect themselves from the extradimensional horrors that just fucking show up on vacation. Fuck.And those poor cryogenically frozen pokemon... they never did get revived. There's an aether grunt that mentions how they'll watch over them. Guess that's different from being frozen by blizzard or something.Is this how lovecraftian references are supposed to work? They just drive the audience mad?
>>884081That is exactly how they workAlso the tapus Massive dicksAs shown by bulu sperging out for literally no reason,fini killing anything that gets near her and being so batshit insane that literally only one person lives on her island,lele literally killing two entire armies and being a actual sadist,and koko not caring about humans and only wanting to fight strong shit
>>884109Well then I'm glad I caught those assholes. They don't deserve to be worshipped. I'll just catch all the myths, legends, and UBs and then everyone else can live their lives without fear. It's my duty as champion.
>>884081Kartana has one of, if not the highest, base attack stat in the game. It's one foot tall and dies to ember from almost anything. >>884109Koko is basically isolationist Goku
>>884109>>884121They are just classic gods. Assholes with massive power.
>>884124I want to think Kartana is cool, I really do. Something's just not clicking with me for it.I guess Koko isn't bad. Not great, but pretty good. The rest still sound pretty shitty though.
>>884137they really earned their fairy typing for sure. >>884160Iunno, Bulu is somewhat understandable and supposedly fini hates humans because of the wars however many centuries ago.
So did sun/moon have the highest percentage of legends/myths of any gen? 80 new pokemon of which we had 4 tapu, 4 box legends, 2 myths, and 8 UB?
>>884188Probably, but they did introduce a whole new category of legendary with the UBs.
>>884178Bulu genociding an entire town,destroying a mall,wreaing po town because he didn't give it approval, and picking fucking NANU as kahuna isn't really the justifiedFini is still pretty shitty tho
>>884200Nanu is great.
>>884081Lovecraftian horror is all about the powerlessness of humanity in the face of eldritch and alien beings that our minds literally cannot comprehend.People tend to end up going insane in these stories because they're being exposed to knowledge and revelations about the universe that our meager human brains simply can't process properly, and that's often reflected in the stories as instinctive feelings of terror, revulsion, and wrongness when confronted with such things.That's why the whole thing with absurdly powerful yet utterly bizarre beings lying beyond the pale of reality that a powerful madwoman is trying to breach is the perfect setting for some good Lovecraftian horror.>>884200Nanu is honestly my favorite character in SM.
>>884213>>884241He's my favorite next to Olivia >>884194They don't have high enough BSTs to be legendaries and most of them are eh at best. The only absurd one is Pheromosa
>>884280>most are mehNigga, all of them except Guzzlord are minmaxed to be amazing at what they do.
>>884200fini guards some sort of super life elixir panacea water and people kept trying to steal it from her or trick her or out right kill her to get to it iirc, so shes bitter from that.
>>884124Just checked celery, Kartman has one more point of attack than deoxys, making it the highest.I hope pokemon generations has cool scenes with the Ultra Beasts.
>>884283in theory? sure, in execution? They fall off the mark, all are kinda eh besides Celesteela and Buzzwole
>>884371>Roach>badIt's may actually be better than skeeter
>>884371They are all pretty good except Guzzlord if you build them correctly.
>>884213>>884241Nanu is great but he should not be in a leadership position But i guess it dosen't really matter since baisclly no one lives on his island except for skull>>884326Even if she is guarding something that doesn't justify killing literally every human who gets near her Look at the lake guardians for example While they protect something important they don't legit kill people
>>884498>Nobody lives there except for SkullUmm, there are multiple towns there anon.
>>884470It's definitely better than the skeeter, I just didn't mention her because I already said she's absurd
Just had my first encounter with Nihilego, and it really does make it clear that whatever it is, it comes from somewhere at right angles to reality.
>>884649Definitely. It doesn't have a face, it shows up through a portal, it's constantly blinking in and out of sight. You can't even read any body language from it. You have no clue at first if it even has a type like pokemon do. Can't even read its name.
>>884498>While they protect something important they don't legit kill peopleCompletely erasing someone's identity may as well be murder.
>>884828When the hell does a Tapu do that?
>>884844He means the lake trio I think anyway
>>884828Tell that to the Jedi Council in KOTR. They were the good guys right?
>>884828The lake trio can take away your memories, emotion, or free will. But I don't think they go out doing so. Bulu scorched the earth on the island he was supposed to be protecting because he got his feelings hurt? And I don't know too much about Fini, but if she's actively keeping medicine from people, that makes her the asshole.I don't know. I'm not really super invested in hating the tapus, but I do really like the lake trio. They gave humans will, emotion, and knowledge. I like those things.
>>884995He destroyed one store and made the area around his shrine a desert
>>884995Look, if Fini's been charged to protect it, and humans have only ever tried to steal it from her, then the act of killing them on sight is at least understandable, and if it turns out that there is in fact a very good reason for that water to be protected (like maybe if life on the islands die off or something without it), then killing is outright justified, given her experiences with the human race.
>>885035Looks like Fini creates the water, not protects it. Still, there's this air to them like they're justified in fucking with people, or it's okay because it's just within their nature. It rubs me the wrong way.I like the legendary dogs a lot better. When people lashed out at them, they didn't lash back. They just fucked off somewhere else.
Hey guys, I know we have a bunch of great girls to choose from but hear me outTeam Skull route
>>886232Not an option, the local gang will likely try to murder us throughout this quest because we are a mainlander.
>>886241Yes, death by sex. Herb will just be lying there and they'll be doing it to him and doing it to him and doing it to him until
>>886243Until what? I want to hear the climax of the story...
>>886265Just before he climaxes, they run a knife across his throat, denying him the final pleasure.
>>886268I liked the last quest's bad end lewdbins more.
>>886232We're literally exactly what they despise. That's like suggesting that a black woman date a KKK member; they're more likely to drown us in the ocean than even consider it.
>>886232If they're like team skull from sun and moon they're fucking adorable and they can waifu a herb all they want.
>>886280They already attempted to fuck up Jane physically.
>>886284Well yeah but who can say what that horrible bitch has done. I know I know, but I really like team skull from S/M and really hate Jane.
>>886286These guys aren't team skull at all.
>>886272We'll win them over with our clueless charm!
>>886296They hate the clueless charm more than Jane from what we saw.
>>886286They aren't Team Skull.Team Skull was a bunch of young people trying to be tough and cool.These guys are people who are dedicated to forcing out the foreigners that are ruining their home, and they are clearly willing to resort to violence and likely other illicit means to do so. They are far more dangerous than Team Skull ever was because they believe that they are fighting for their livelihoods.
>>886306They need a name other than "those anti-mainlanders," assuming that they do have some sort of organization.Like Militia Against Intruding Mainlanders (MAIM)I can't wait for Herb to deal with them in the way he does best: compassion and understanding.
>>886306Fine I just want Herb to have a budding romance with a nationalistic xenophobe
>>886354Only if we end up converting her via hot lawful handholding
>>886361She doesn't count she's non-native.
>>886365Fuck you say m8? I'll have you know Jane is the most native person around and Herb wouldn't be able to tell anyways
>>886354That sounds nice in theory, but we don't know if Herb will find the right nationalist xenophobe for him. Someone he could see settling down with someday. What are her goals? Dreams? Will our pokemon approve of her?I mean, sexually aggressive skull girls are hot and all, but I feel like Herb needs someone who can turn on the Dick in his heart, not just the dick in his pants.Herb'd be pretty cute getting seduced by the enemy though. And then his natural charm starts to shine through and they decide to wait until marriage.
>>886378I think we need a sexually aggro girl who secretly has a heart of gold, why not a grunt or an admin
>>886400>Sexually aggro girl who secretly has a heart of goldSooo Laki?
>>886400You just keep describing girls we already have
>>886400Probably not an admin, they'd likely be a fair bit older, and it seems like our party members this time around will be a bit lower level, so to speak. A grunt could be perfect though. You guys remember those "dating a magma grunt" comics? Those were nice. I'd like something like that.>>886401Good point, but I still want a grunt.
>>886401>>886404fine, a pure delinquent
>>886401>Herb and Laki romance>He keeps being sweet and nice>She keeps desperately trying to coax a hot dicking out of him
>>886413Jane's mostly just a regular pokemon trainer, if an abrasive one. I could see her falling in with the anti mainlanders. She seems to really want to be seen as one of the natives, and they were offering that. Plus, it's the confident types who can really get themselves in over their heads.It'd be the perfect opportunity for Herb to continue to treat her kindly and with respect. That'll show her.
>>886417She already told them to fuck off, also she is only half native so they hate her.
>>886405It's good stuff
>>886433Why are accidental female pedos so hot?Is it because It's relatable for a guy?
>>886449Oh like you've never checked out/hit on a girl and then found out she's 16 after.
>>886444Oh I remember that issueIt got so much backlash, that was a popular ship at the time.
>>886408Well we've already gotten one noncanon lewdbin. It'd be interesting to get a similar one from Laki's perspective.Or maybe we could be privy to her dreams of a golden combo? We have a world of lewd to explore there, but I don't feel qualified to write any of it.
>>887966Dream bins can work. Anything can happen there
>>887966>Laki tells Herb about her fantasy of being spitroasted by him and a strapon-wearing Valerie>Herb doesn't understand why Laki wants to be cannibalized or why Valerie would be wearing a spit
>>889750Amusing, I often wonder why Herb is so oblivious for being a decently smart guy. Especially considering his father is always talking about lewd stuff. Hmm, actually maybe it's a coping mechanism for dealing with people like his dad. Interesting...
>>889750>Laki wanting to be spitroasted>not spitroasting othersIts shit, mate.
>>889821>Laki and Herb spitroasting Valerie>Laki and Herb high five during the act>back to reality of Laki sighing wistfully
>>889818I wonder what kinks everybody else would have? We seem to be getting a good idea of Laki's, and Hana probably has quite a few. Val seems to be gearing up to explore and Keira is suddenly around the opposite sex.I've heard a theory that kinks are erotic solutions to everyday problems. Tired of being a doormat? Dominance kink. Tired of being ignored by authority figures? Uniform kink. Tired of how people normally hate how you're not assertive? In bed, someone might love for you to be submissive. Submission kink.I wonder, in that context, what sort of fantasies Jane, Polu, or Herb might have.>>889818Maybe. I think that'a the type of characteristic I'm not too worried about. It's funny enough to justify itself. On the tilt her hand, maybe it's guilt? Like he grew up with mostly girls for friends who always complained about horny boys and complimented him for "not being like that?" And now he's suppressed some of those feelings.Or maybe Zygarde says lust is a sin.
>>889873>Herb's kink: getting to the level of best friends
>>889898Nah, his fetish is enjoying a wonderful meal cooked by a wonderful friend, while watching that friend eat a meal he cooked for them.
>>889904Herb's fetish: holding someone close, feeling their heartbeat and hearing their breath, and knowing that he has someone he can rely on.
>>889873Herb's Kink:missionary position while holding hands for the purpose of procreation
>>889873Zygarde isn't god silly, he's just the planets guardian
>>890094That doesn't mean he can't be worshipped Zygardism might be an actual thing in kalos
>>890094After the Tapu's were referred to as "deities" so many times I'm finally comfortable calling legendaries and mythical gods. There have been enough shrines to various pokemon after all.And also I like Zygarde. Herb is from Kalos, right?
>>890124No clue, this is the gobbleverse and probably has different regions
>>890138We need to trade childhood stories with Keira. She seems like she's really interested. So am I.
>>890147I want to do this with like the entire cast.
>>890159Definitely. But Keira seems the most immediately curious about us. She's also probably had the upbringing it's different from everyone else's. Things we learn about Polu's upbringing might be similar to Laki's or Hana's, but not Keira's. Getting to know everyone is going to be one of the best things about this quest ongoing.
>>890124It would be neat if it turned out the islanders honored Zygarde, though the image we saw of their major god was definitely more Rayquaza.Shit, I just want Zygarde to get some time in the limelight. It got no meaningful story or lore in either of the games it appeared in, and it's such a neat idea that never got explored.
>>890257Yeah. Does Zy do any better in the anime? I think the balance thing is cool, and I loved my in-game zygarde in sun. But it just never seems to do anything... godly.
>>890321Zygarde IS the main plot besides the league in XYZ. I mean fuck, they added a Z to it.
What do people here think of dwebble/crustle? I never used one, but I think it looks cool. It's one of the only pokemon to learn rock wrecker too, which is cool. We don't really need another rock though. We seem to be generally more interested in cutiefly/wimpod.
>>891572We already have BEST ROCK. Honestly I'd say most bugs are coo. Last quest we never tapped into some of the better bugs.
>>891572I like Grubbin, plus his final form Vikavolt looks super cool.
>>891627sadly grubbin is actually faster than his final evolution vikavolt... at least vikavolt has 145 base special attack.I'm partial to dewpider and araquanid personally, their ability water bubble makes them immune to burns, halves fire damage and doubles the base power of water moves.
>>891627>>891646Don't forget most of the bugs from gen 2 and 5.
>>891578Yeah. Butterfree is nice and all, but gens 5/7 had my favorites. Maybe Keira won't want her Shedinja? I've already railed on about that though.>>891627Vikavolt learns guillotine, which is pretty cool. So can Durant. I've been thinking about Durant a little bit lately. It can have the truant ability, and the move entrainment. It's kind of like worry seed, which we already have though.>>891646They get entrainment too! Could be cool for doubles.
>>891658Heracross, Escavalier, Leavanny, Scolipede, Yanmega, Galvantula, all great. We might even get a Larvesta thing at the spirit island if the elders like us or something. But I honestly don't like the fluffy mothra that much.
>>891657well, masquerain got a +40 bst buff so its actually pretty good now too. oh and fell stinger got buffed to 50 base power and gives a +3 on a kill, so technician kricketune might be cool...always liked vespiquen too...
>>891690It threw away it's water type. I can't forgive that. Vespiqueen is cool though.
>>891700yeah... that sucked, also; I bet we could do some crazy shit with vespiquen with how pokemon work in this quest, maybe develop her own "weather" move thats a swarm of insects or something.
>>891690vespiquen is cool, I could see Herb getting a combee
>>891712That would be horrifying and I love it. Though I do hope we can pick it up as a Combee. Also I hope we get some Pokemon that can go faster besides boosting Mace.>>891717Combee v Cutieflu
>>891712>>891717>>891720>What's this? A pokemon contest woefully underpopulated by BEES!?>A healthy serving of BEE STORM should remedy this situation!
>>891746I hope we try contest, even just one to see what it is like.
>>891765Yeah, it would be a fun time and a chance to hang out with Val in her element.
>>891770Maybe we can luck out and have it be a double contest so we aren't going to ruin Val's time if we decide on not liking them and win.
>>891788Well, given our luck we might just do that. Something tells me we'll be competing in contests as much as our pokemon want to. We'll see how much that is though. I'm kind of excited just to see what the format is though.
>>891902I think Gobble has given us Pokemon that like both parts. Gobs seems to like dancing, Mace gets to show off how great he is, Bella gets to play more.
I wonder what everyone's favorite pokemon is? I feel like in-setting that question has a whole lot more weight. Normally questions like "What's your favorite/spirit animal?" are pretty innocuous, but pokemon are can think. I'd be pretty pissed if I were an Umbreon and my trainer said theirs was Espeon or Zorua or something.
>>892110Oh, also, I really like it when pokemon are worked into everyday life. That's something I've really liked about sun/moon, but especially about these quests.
>>893445Hype!Looking forward to seeing Hana's battling style. She's only got the two pokemon, so we'll see whether they go doubles or not. It might make more sense to go singles, so that whoever gets the first knockout doesn't immediately get a 2v1. Or maybe that's a risk Hana's willing to take?
>>893445about time, we've mentally exhausted all future possibilities!
>>894288No kidding. Half of this thread is post-thread talkback. It's nice though. Getting to talk about what sort of character Herb is, what we want to set as our goals. Plus I feel like there's a sense of community here. I'd rather hang out here than /vp/ or r/pokemon.
>>894749/vp/ Can be amusing but this more fun by far.
>>893905>inb4 she caught the Crabrawler
>>895098>constantly gives Herb a black eye
>>896641>we cook>we show affection>specific Pokemon physically abuses us>we look different from most people skin color wiseHerb confirmed for Brock
>>896680Playing Brock is great.
So, I finally caught up through the archives to read everything up to now, but I've got say that I feel like there was a fairly bad stumbling block right at the beginning with having so many characters introduced all at once. Is this just a problem that I had, or has anybody else felt like we haven't really done or gained anything for want of socializing, and not even really gotten to know any of these characters all that well?I just kinda think that if we were only introduced to only one or two of the characters at the beginning, and were gradually introduced to the others after that, we'd have a much better pace and sense of direction for where this journey is going.
>>896851I kinda agree on it being too many people at once, but I think Gobble has done a good job since then. We are getting to know people as time goes on, but I do hope we get more time with the people we talk less too. Granted we also end up choosing to do things with the same few people because we haven't gone too much out of our way to do things with them. Also it has only been a few days in quest time.
>>896851Yeah. Even with the ability to go back and reread introductions it was a little tricky keeping track of everyone.But I think the way we've done things has also done a really good job of putting us in Herb's shoes. He's just moved, and of course everyone he sees he's going to be meeting for the first time. So we meet a lot of characters quickly. Herb's a young man setting out into the world, so neither he nor we know where this is going. And even with all our socializing, we've still had time to catch and grow close to three wonderful Pokémon. We're going to keep getting to learn about Herb and grow closer to his friends with him for the whole quest, and I'm glad for that.
>>896903I remember back in thread 3 having no idea who anyone other than Laki who any other the characters were. I like her description was the only that stuck in my mind, I still mix up the girls in my head at times.
>>897384Early on I did too, but at this point that is kinda bad.
>>897390Eh, realistically we haven't even learned much about the main cast. Only Laki, Keira, and Hana have development so far. Jane is getting there too. The rest of the characters are much more how do you say... Lest distinct in my mind.
>>897842Well that only leaves Polu and Val left undeveloped. If you are confusing those two together then I dunno what to say.
>>897865Nah, I mix up girls like Val, and Jane, and Hana until like a few threads back. I admire your attempt at humor tho.
>>897865Another thing I noticed is we don't have too much in the way of description for the cast either. I think it's on purpose but in certain parts of the writing I lose track of who's doing what. I want to say I really enjoy the quest, but these are things that have happened to me when I been reading it. Perhaps I'm the only one, but just thought I would say so.
>>898133I try to entertain.>>898151That is understandable. I think Gobble is letting the pictures act as a basis and letting people fill in the blanks. Besides for the assets, those are carefully measured.
>>898199I think you misspelled asses. There's not supposed to be a t.
>>898151I never had the problem of mixing them up in my mind, but I do feel like we barely know any of them even now. Not because we haven't spent enough time trying to get to know them, but because we're trying to get along with everybody that we're only getting a shallow characterization of them.
>>898220Gobble has given us allllll the measurements.
>>898254Did anyone compile them into a list, ya'know for science.
>>898261They are in the archive somewhere. Gobble didn't rank them from best to worst, just said what size of butts, chest, and types of thighs.
>>898243We'll get to see everybody put under stress eventually, I just don't think we're going to be the stressor in most cases. We've just got to get to know them one layer at a time. Like an ogre.
>>898261All you have to know is that Laki is at the top for all of them except lewdness
>>898430I feel like the thighs were more subjective. Keira was top Teri for me there. And if Zinnia's a good comparison, then Jane's up there too.
>>898274That's not exactly what I mean. It's more an issue of mostly hanging around with them in groups without any personal interaction. We're only involved with them in the same group activities without actually getting to know them at all. We've spent some time with Valerie, but I know less about her than I do Polu, who we've probably interacted with even less. All I could tell you about Laki is that she has a rough and domineering temperament and some hangups stemming from her failure athletically. The character I feel like we have the best handle on would probably be Jane, because as shitty as she acts towards us it's been the most personal interaction we've had with any other character, and her issues and the dynamic between her and Herb is actually pretty simple to understand. Other than that, it'd be Hana or Keira depending, since you could potentially take more away from Keira's interactions than I did.
>>898430Laki a best.
>>898463You can also garner underneath all the "domineering" Laki is a pretty kind person. She was the first one to look for us after the egg thing, her and Kiera anyway. We've also bonded with her the most, she's probably John's friend now.
>>898463Yeah. I can see how spending time around someone and them opening up to us aren't the same thing. The best we can plan is probably to make Herb the kind of insightful, nonjudgmental sort of person that others feel comfortable opening up to.And it wouldn't hurt to have Herb try to make gains while he's on these magic islands. Attractiveness only gets you so much favor from people, but every bit helps.To that end I think we should have Herb start running laps with his pokemon every morning. I bet Mace could whip us into shape nicely.
>>898498>Making Gobs run laps I'm having flashbacks to when I was tiny and fat. N-no bully the chubby guy
>>898498Actually, I feel like if Herb just decided what he was going to really go for, be it going for contests or gym battles or community service, there'd be more common ground there that other people could relate with. As it stands, as a guy that just wants be be friendly and doesn't have any specific greater goals in mind and a foreigner on top, Herb probably comes off as weirdly unapproachable or overly nice.
>>898513I just remember how cool the snorlax was in the last quest when it caught a fucking airship, and its trainer made it run laps.>>898613I think right now our main goal is to just explore the island. We'll find our passion eventually. Personally, I'm hoping that its master chef. It'll still give us an edge in battle/contests, but I also really want to run Herb as a support character.
>>898708The issue is, Snorlax are supposed to be fat. I think maybe making Gobs the biggest snorlax ever would be a better goal.
>>898766I really like Gobbs as he is now though. I don't want him to sleep all the time and stop doing cute things. That's why I want him to be active if he evolves, like the normal type gym leader's snorlax was last quest.
>>898787Have a little faith in our QM, she wouldn't make him boring
>>898787He can be special in his own way. With special metronome training.
