You got involved in a temple debate. You had an underwear adventure with a girl
REMINDERJOHN IS PURE PURETRUELY TO PURE FOR THIS WORLDalzoFISHING A IS BEST RECREATIONAL ACTIVITY
>>1008853>TRUELY TO PUREbutt please
You wake up the next morning to the gentle sound of Belladonna making a very faint, cute breathing noise next to your face. You move your legs and find that Mace is resting between your feet.And your pillow is breathing. There’s Gobble!You stretch and get dressed. Everyone else except Gobble is eager to greet the day. He’d rather sleep.You look to Jane’s room and see a blue eye in the crack quickly vanish. You sigh.There’s a knock at your door.“Hello?”“Herb! Are you awake?” Keira asks from the other side.“Umm, yes.” You’re not sure how else to answer.She whips open the door. “Blessed morning! The temple is offering us breakfast before the shard ceremony, but it will be a little bit. Everyone else is here, but nobody answered when I knocked so I think they’re all asleep. I’m going to go for a walk until then.”>Sounds good, you’ll join her>Go fishing in the small river nearby>Do some training>Walk around the temple>Something else
>>1008870>>Sounds good, you’ll join her
>>1008870>Sounds good, you’ll join herFishing is also good, but we can do that anytime.

>>1008899mirin those digits
“Can I come?”“Sure!” She smiles brightly from under her facepaint, the starts walking off.You go to follow, but Gobble is laying out on the floor.“Come on, Gobble.”He very slowly stirs up. You have to run to catch up to Keira.She lets out her pokemon too. It’s a bright, sunny day with a nice cooling breeze. The heavy tree shading makes it perfect.“So, Herb.” She keeps her hands behind her back. “That’s really impressive that you made baco bread on your first try. It’s one of my favorites. Is everyone from the mainland good at cooking?”“Well, not really.” You don’t want to brag or anything. ”Everyone has different interests.”You chat about nothing for a while as you make your way through the narrow, tree’d path. You come to a rest at a stream. The pokemon water themselves and you both sit on a fallen over tree. Bella especially seems to enjoy her spot by the water.“Herb.”“Yeah?”“Has Polu said anything strange to you?”>Nope>Well, he did give me this bone>Dodge the question>Ask about her religion>Something else
>>1008955>NopeIt isn't lying if we are clueless
>>1008955>Well, he did give me this bone>Ask about her religion
>>1008955>Define strange>Because a lot of this place is strange to me at times.
>>1008955>Well, he did give me this bone>Keep it close to you so she can't snatch it way or something.I don't want to lie to Keira.
>>1008955>Well, he did give me this bone>>Ask about her religionprobably not the ideal person to ask about hearsay, but I wanna know what the bone is
>>1008955>Nope>What do you mean by strange?
>>1008955>the starts walking off
>>1008955>Nope>Ask about her religion
>>1008955>NopeReminder to everyone voting for bonePolu said that people see that as a symbol of heresey and it might fuck up our relationship with him
>>1008955>NopeWe aren't betraying our friend.
>>1008974I'll back this.
“Nope. I mean, I still don’t know a lot about the islands so everything is still a little strange to me.” You tell her, convincing yourself that you’re not avoiding mentioning anything in particular. “Why, what do you mean by strange?”“Well.” she looks at the ground. “I don’t know. I don’t really meet a lot of people from his island since they don’t have a temple. I’ve just heard things, mostly.”This is getting uncomfortable. “What sort of things?”She kicks her feet in the air and looks off at nothing. “Like they spread rumors about the priests and do strange sacrifices in secret. Polu seems really nice though, so I don’t know.” She’s really looking uncomfortable now, like she’s embarrassed to even be talking about it. “He’s got some strange pokemon, huh?”“I guess so. Yeah.” All pokemon are strange in their own ways. But that ghost pokemon of his, Spiritomb, does stick out to you. “Sorry. Forget I said anything. I heard a lot of things about mainlanders too and you don’t fit any of them.” She realizes what she just said and covers her mouth. “Sorry.” She mutters again.You wonder how long it’s been? Breakfast is probably ready by now. In fact, you might be late. You're trying to figure out how far the sun as move when a dark bird pokemon flies overhead, causing a quick shadow then fresh flash of sunlight in your eyes."I hate when that happens." Keira says, seeing you blink.>Walk back the way you came, in the open path>Come on, let’s cut through the woods here to get back>Ask what sort of rumours>Well, you can’t believe everything you hear>Something else

>>1009105>Walk back the way you came, in the open path>Ask what sort of rumors>Well, you can't believe everything you hear.I wonder if we just saw crowbro.
“Well, you can’t believe everything you hear.” You offer.She seems to really think on that. “But that’s all I know about...everything outside the priesthood.” She gets lost in thought.Gobble eats some random plants on the way down the open path back the way you came before you can stop him. They seem harmless enough, but it’s clear he’s getting more and more hungry. You wonder if he’ll evolve soon, too.You and Keira get ripped out of your thoughts when a bird caws at you from a branch above.“Murkrow!” You wave to it, recognizing it instantly. There’s a distinct look to him.He caws again, flies down, and shakes a bundle he’s carrying.“You want to trade?”He caws again, then digs a little with his claw.You go to reach for the bundle to see what he has, but he keeps it away and makes an aggressive noise.Keira, looking very confused, still translates for you. “He says you need to give him something and he’ll decide what you get.” Her eyes are full of questions about this whole affair.That doesn’t seem like a very fair business model.>The tiny metal hook from your old rod>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casings>Give him your camping lighter>A light pan from your cooking kit. Not your heavy, black, weaponized one, but the shiny camping one>You'll pass. Thanks.>Something else
>>1009244>>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casingsIt's Shiny, Also cures poisons!
>>1009244>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casings
>>1009244Pan, or antidote.Maybe both? How much did he bring for trade?
>>1009244>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casings>A light pan from your cooking kit. Not your heavy, black, weaponized one, but the shiny camping oneThe hook and the lighter could harm him, but otherwise I have no preference as to which we trade.
>>1009244>>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casingshe's been good to us, Crowbro deserves our trust
>>1009244Can we show him what we have and let him pick what he wants?
>>1009244>>A light pan from your cooking kit. Not your heavy, black, weaponized one, but the shiny camping one
>>1009265Actually, let's see if he's willing to trade for both the pan and the antidote.
>>1009244>A light pan from your cooking kit. Not your heavy, black, weaponized one, but the shiny camping one>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casings2 for 1 special
>>1009244>A light pan from your cooking kit. Not your heavy, black, weaponized one, but the shiny camping one>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casingsSounds good
>>1009244>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casingsSeems like the most useful one to give.
>>1009244>Give him an antidote, they have shiny metal casingsMost of the others are probably a bit dangerous or troublesome for him (I know it says light frying pan but I'd still imagine it would be a pain for a small bird to carry off).
>>1009244>>The tiny metal hook from your old rod
You offer him the pan and an antidote.He caws and points his beak to a spot between the two of you.Murkrow inspects what you lay down. He hops around it, giving it a few bites, and only exposing his back to you for a fraction of a second.He drags it back a few feet, then sticks his beak into his bundle. He drags out two items. A small chunk of ice, and a dirty disk.“Is that a TM?” You ask as you move to pick it up. Murkrow drags it’s loot away from you when you approach.Murkrow shrugs and makes a noise. “He says it is what it is. Stick it in your shiny noise box or whatever you do.” Keira gives a look to make sure you know she’s just translating.You pick up the ice. It’s cold, but it’s not melting. Huh. You wonder if you should be holding it with your bare hands.“Thanks, Murkrow.”Murkrow is putting all his stuff together to figure out how to lift away his haul. He’s a creative packer, that’s for sure. He caws at you and gets a few feet before adjusting it, then he repacks it and takes off for good.“Good doing business with you.” Keira says. Still confused.The two of you head back to the temple. Before you get into it though, you almost run head first into the boy who you lent your pokedex to.“Ah.” He bows to Keira deeply, then a little to you. “Thank you for lending me your Pokedex.” He offers it back. “I uhh, am sorry.”Before you can understand what he means, he gives it to you and quickly vanishes around a corner.“Sorry?”Keira shrugs, she has no idea either.You look over your Pokedex. It seems lighter. You check out the back and see that the panel has been replaced with a different one with an empty storage spot in the back. You turn it on and it flickers a bit, booting a little slower. It otherwise seems to be working, though. At least, as far as you can tell with a quick inspection.>Hey wait! Come back!>Go find Brother Hoon and complain>Well, these things happen. Just go eat breakfast>Something else
>>1009449>Hey wait! Come back!Not mad, just confused
>>1009449>Hey wait! Come back!
>>1009436Thats stupid. We use the old rod. While we could technically use the antidote, its not a necessity. Neither is the tin frying pan, which is practically useless for the level of cooking we prefer. Plus, this is a vendor we have, and want to continue having, a good relationship with. A shitty metal hook will not even turn the head of a Pidgey, much less a Murkrow.
>>1009455>>1009449thisNo need in being mad, just need an explanation
>>1009449>>1009455This.Did he break a RAM... thing?
>>1009449Can the disk fit in the pokedex?
>>1009449>>1009455>Hey wait! Come back!just wanting to know what was changed.
>>1009449>Hey wait! Come back!Just ask what happened, don't be mad
>>1009449>Hey wait! Come back!Let's find out what he changed.
>>1009449>Hey wait! Come back!Joining in on asking about what happened. Even if something is broken I feel we don't even use the Pokedex enough to be that upset over it; especially given we handed it over in the first place.
>>1009449>empty storage spot in the backAs in he added a spot to store things... or he swiped the internal memory or something?
Keira looks at the pokedex, then compares it to her own and blinks.“Hey wait! Come back.” You follow after him, leaving her behind. You’re more confused than mad.You’re not the most perceptive guy, but even you can see he’s hurrying away and pretending not to hear you. You try to pick up the pace.“Hey. Hold on! I’m not mad, I just want to talk.”You hurry around the corner. He’s been stopped by Mace! He must have gone around the other way to cut him off.He turns and sees you, then sighs, defeated. Bella runs up and points her flowers at him aggressively and he raises his hands. You have to motion her to calm down.“I’m very sorry.” He bows again.“What happened?”He explains that he ended up breaking the hard drive on it and some ram. He replace them, but with older parts. There’s barely any storage on it (not that you knew it even saved stuff.) You can’t save contact info or record data. The radio was also replaced with an older part too, but he insists it’s a good one. He tells you it will still float if you press the air pouch button. Another thing you didn’t know it could do.He bows. “Please. Let me make it up to you. My karma and honor demands it.”“I’m really not mad.” You tell him.“Please. If I don’t do something to make up for it, this will haunt me, just like Brother Hoon says. I can do electrical work, or give you something of equal value.” He looks away. “And if we can keep this between us...”>Got any shiny scrap metal?>Do you happen to have any berries?>Can you restore this TM? It’s all rusty (you can probably fix it up yourself, but it'll take time)>Okay, tell me about this bone clip.>Something else
>>1009592>>Can you restore this TM? It’s all rusty (you can probably fix it up yourself, but it'll take time)
>>1009592>Can you restore this TM? It’s all rusty (you can probably fix it up yourself, but it'll take time)
>>1009592>Okay, tell me about this bone clip.And keep this between us, don't let any other monk or priestess know
>>1009592>>Something else"Join me. You find cool things. I would like to learn your ways. I will feed you besides"
>>1009592>Okay, tell me about this bone clip
>>1009592I'd really rather get scrap metal or know about the bone clip.The other two options are things we can easily do for ourselves.
>>1009592>>Can you restore this TM? It’s all rusty (you can probably fix it up yourself, but it'll take time)How expensive are pokedex's anyway? We can always buy some replacement parts if we make some good money off battling or a casino
>>1009608>>1009614He's doing this based on his sense of honor; the same sense of honor that might compel him to tell somebody about this, if it really is heretical.
>>1009592>>Got any shiny scrap metal?
>>1009610I don't think we can steal a monk anon
>>1009623Not with that attitude!
>>1009619Its better to know what we havethe other options are things we can handle, this is an unknown unknown
>>1009647We can likely obtain the info from books or other sources of public knowledge, and if not then from Polu if nothing else.
>>1009592>Got any shiny scrap metal?Got to keep Pickle-Pee happy.
>>1009592>Got any shiny scrap metal?
You think for a minute. You don’t really want anything, but by the look on him, he needs to do something. You can understand that feeling. You hate feeling guilty whenever you screw up and need to make it up.“Well, actually, can you clean up this?” You take out the old TM. “I don’t even think it’d fit in the pokedex with all the dirt and stuff on it.” You think “The TM reader still works, right?”He nods. “Yes, yes of course. We’re very good at working with old and rusty things here. It’s a speciality. We believe in maximizing the potential of older technologies.” He takes it from you. “This won’t take long. I promise. And thank you.”Bella threatens him again. He doesn’t take it overly seriously, but he gives her space. Keira reaches you just as he leaves. Bella looks up to Keira and thrusts a flower at her too. Keira just sniffs the flower instead. “Smells pretty!”Bella is deflated at her failed threat and pouts.“Come on, the shard ceremony is starting.” Keira grabs your hand and leads you away. She avoids holding it when you run by some monks, though.You arrive at the ceremony room. Everyone looks over at you from their kneeling position. They’re all wearing robes, too.“Disrespectfully late.” Jane mutters under her breath.Keira offers a formal bow. You’re not sure what to do and do the same. Brother Hoon’s expression shows you did it wrong, but his raised hand to Jane and two other monks tells them not to worry about it. Gobble imitates what you did and manages not to fall forward.Keira points to a place to kneel. You go and do so like everyone else.“Now.” Brother Hoon says. “Where were we? Ah yes. I want everyone here to think deeply about their place in their community. In their family.”Hana looks uncomfortable.“In the eyes of your peers. Think about those around you, and reflect. Reflect on their actions to you, and yours to them. There’s a great circuit of karma, of trust, that goes through the connections in your life. Are you letting it flow through you, or insulating against it? What about others? Where are your connections weakest? What can you do to strengthen them?”Who do you want to improve your connection to?>You could do something nice for Val>Laki seems like she makes herself distance>Keira and you have a large gap you want to work on>You’ve made progress with Jane, but could do more>Polu has been a bro. You want to be one back>Hana seems like she has layers and needs help getting out of her shell>You don’t feel as close to Mace as you do your other pokemon>Who am I?>Something else
>>1009778>Who am I?
>>1009778>Laki seems like she makes herself distance
>>1009778>Who am I?Obviously we want to spend time with everyone. But we're on our journey for a reason.
>>1009778Who are we?Keira and you have a large gap you want to work on
>>1009778>>Who am I?
>>1009778>>Who am I?ALWAYS MYSTERY BOX
>>1009778>Who am I?I want to vote for Laki but that seems rude.
>>1009778>>Laki seems like she makes herself distance>makes herself distanceButt, please.
>>1009843No, that is right
>>1009849If English is your third language.The correct way to say it would be: Makes herself distant.
>>1009856Or are just blind, I got hung up on the first part.
>>1009778>Who am I?>Keira and you have a large gap you want to work on
>>1009778Can you tell us who the others chose, assuming they had a similar choice?
>>1009778>>Who am I?>Laki seems like she makes herself distanceWay too late I know
You think about the connections in your life. What gaps do you want to work on? The first two gaps that come to mind are Laki’s cleavage and Keira’s thighs, but you quickly squash those thoughts. You guess you’re a little like your dad in some ways after all, even if you avoid it. Or are you?Who are you?No really. Who are you? You’ve only started on your quest, but you’re already learning a lot. Your name is John. You’re a new trainer. You like to cook. You like fashion. You’re not really in anyone’s face, but you’re proud of how much more outgoing you’ve gotten already. There’s been some progress there. You never considered yourself very brave, but if you had to put your ego aside, you’ve done a lot of brave stuff in the last while. Or maybe just reckless stuff. People say that teenagers don’t have a good sense of danger. But you’re not a typical teenager, are you?Well, maybe you are. You bet everyone thinks they’re not typical. Your talk with Hana before made you feel a lot better and more normal about...you know. Doing teenager stuff to yourself. You wonder when you'll grow out of that.You’re nowhere near as assertive as everyone else you know. If you’re being honest, you’re probably the biggest obstacle to connecting to others. Yes, you’re nice, you’re polite, but are you open? When something annoys you or someone causes problems for you, can you be honest about it, or do you smile, figure out a way to live with it, and shoulder it without saying anything? Are you scared of conflict? Scared of hurting someone even if you should say something? Are you arrogant, thinking that you can handle being told something bad, but others can’t?What is your role in this new community you find yourself in. Your role with your friends, family, pokemon? With yourself? What do you honestly think of yourself?>You’re the support, the team mom, nurturing whoever needs it>You’re the rock. The sense of stability for everyone>You’re the outsider.

>>1010063>>1010085I don't get it. That is Laki on the left and Hana on the right isn't it?
Primarily, you’re the supporter. The nurturer. The mom. You have a few issues when it comes to your masculinity, so that’s not easy to admit. But why does being caring and supporting have to be feminine? Your grandpa was a caring guy. And he was manly He built stuff with his calloused hands and had a big beard and everything.Is that what makes a man manly?You bring your thoughts back to focus. You know what else you are the people need? Stable. You’re consistent. Maybe that’s boring, and maybe you don’t know all that much about people or the world, but you do know how good it is to have something stable. Someone familiar and constant to ground yourself with. That goes along well with being supporting. Usually you think of being a rock as more like a dad figure that’s always in the garage or always saying “yup” and you can always predict what they say. Someone that doesn’t ever have any doubt about themselves or the world, but aren’t arrogant about it. They just know the world and their place in it. But maybe it’s just being someone people can depend on, even if they depend on your to be undependable. Not that you’re undependable, but you just mean the general concept of consistency. Maybe-“John.”You open your eyes. The room is empty except for Keira and Brother Hoon.“It’s been three hours.” He answers the question you didn’t think to ask yet. “Meditation can do that.”“Did- did I miss it?”“No.” He puts takes your hand, then places the shard in it. “Well, yes, but the dogma isn’t as important as the meaning and purpose behind it. I can sense you’ve done a lot of reflecting.”Keira peaks at him and you from her meditating pose.“The others are waiting for you before they leave. Oh, and I apologize for starting this a little late. There was a mess in the tool shed this morning. John, you seem like a fine young man with a lot on your mind, before you go, is there anything you’d like to discuss?”>No, but thanks!>Can he help Mace with meditation?

“Actually, there is one thing. Can you help Mace?”He raises an eyebrow.You explain the situation with Mace and his energy. He strokes his chin and waits until you’re done talking. “Yes. He seems like he’d take well to it.” He glances at the rock.Mace is looking over the room, staying vigilant.“Mace, have you been doing that this whole time?”He offers what you think is his version of a solute. He’s become more dutiful since you first got him.“Let me have some time alone with him.” He says “Go, see the others.”You get up and fall over. Your limbs are asleep. You poke the sleeping Gobble and he wakes up with a start. Keira goes with you, too.As you go to the temple courtyard, you see everyone else, even Jane. She and Laki are exchanging evil glares, but nobody is saying anything. It’s like the temple is some sort of neutral ground. It reminds you of that old tv show about immortal people that fought with swords and holy ground was neutral. Bella is there too, sitting on a stone wall near Laki’s shoulder.“Hey, bro!” Polu puts an arm around you. “Been surfing?” He pokes you in the gut. You feel a tinge of self consciousness in having your lack of strong muscles felt. “I’m just bugging you. It’s only been a day. Look, bro, I’ve been training really hard, and I want to get a rematch soon. That okay? You’re heading to Eelilee with Laki and Keira, right? Any idea where you’re going after that?” He leans in closer “Jane looks really scary right now.

>>1010327>>1010332>>1010354Please no, we just got good will with Jane and she will say it is trying to rig a win.
>>1010358Then let's team up with Jane!

>>1010361Want a win from her carrying us? Laki still doesn't have a badge while everyone else does.
>>1010363we'll need to write them down, the pokedex can't store numbers anymoreNo combo suggested for double battles is gonna be perfect, I think forcing Laki and Jane to work together would help them, even if it's just a little
>>1010387Yea i figure we'd have to do that.Add a means to upgrade or pokedex on the to-do list
>>1010366Then team up with Laki against Polu and Jane.
>>1010289>solute and not saluteThat's a butt.
“I have no idea where I’m going next.” you confess. “I’m just sort of planning on going with the flow.”He raises a fist. You flinch, thinking he’s going to give you a playful punch, before you realize he’s looking for a fistbump. You bump it.“But yeah. I’m down for a battle right now.”He slaps you on the back. “Got the itch, huh? I think I’m understanding it too. Pokemon training brings it out of you.”Everyone is making sure they have everyone else’s numbers, and they all get yours too. Jane doesn’t ask, but you notice her plugging them into her pokedex.You ask for a pencil and paper, and the group manages to find the two between them all, letting you scribble down everyone’s numbers. The group hangs out for awhile, nobody wanting to be the person that breaks it all up and leaves first.“What’s your number, Jane?” You offer as friendly as you think you can without sounding insincere. You’re starting to think that you’re getting through to her, sometimes.She mutters it to you and you scribble it down. She gets yours, too. You get a quick call from her, but she hangs up as soon as you answer.“Just testing.” She says. “You sounded like you were looking for a battle.” Val cautiously teases you. “Are we going to get a show?” Her pokemon bounce around.Yeah. You’re feeling it. And almost right on time, Brother Hook comes out with Mace, giving him a refresher on meditation exercises.>Suggest a team battle with Polu, Jane, and Laki (will vote for who is on whose team)>Challenge Polu now>Challenge Jane now>How about it Laki?

>>1010556shit man, if i'd known that i'd have voted rock
>>1010576We get her anyways because Laki though.
>>1010565So does this mean when herb start making moves with the girls, he becomes team MILF?
I kind of wanted to get Bella some training with her new body in before we used her in battle. (Learn poison sting, leach seed, and attempt magical leaf.) It's possible that this will be a fine sort of training too, though.Also, is like to see about asking Gobble how he feels about evolving, and weather or not he's like to hold off until he's learned snatch/fling/swallow/stockpile.
>>1010581but Laki is trashthe hardmode route is the only choice
>>1010600>implying they all don't have difficulty curves
>>1010600You misspelled "My opinion".
>>1010595It's nearly tradition at this point to just learn things on the fly mid-battle. Like, wasn't Worry Seed the only thing we actually picked up through training so far?
“Why don’t we battle now?” You say to Polu.He pauses. “Yeah?”“Yeah. If you’re up for it.”He mulls it over and looks around. His hand slowly goes to the bandanna he’s wearing. “Yeah. That sounds like a challenge to me. Okay. Double battle? Two each?”You’re starting to get a bit worried at his sudden resurgence of confidence. But you remember last time. You won, and you had a lot of fun, too. Polu and his pokemon are nice, but challenging opponents.“What about the bet?” Laki asks, playfully egging you both on a little. “You boys,” she emphasizes the word, “are going to put something on the line, right?”>Just a man's pride>A bet equal to half your money>Bet a held item>Bet a small favor>Change the battle type or pokemon amount>Something else

>>1010620>Bet a small favorThe best reward is the training we're getting out of this.>>1010615Well, Gobble also should pick up recycle, odor sleuth, screech, and natural gift. That's a lot of moves to get without any plan.

>>1010696>>1010702combining the team mom thing with True Mans World seems like something Herb could do, plus it would be entertaining.
>>1010702The way you said that sounds turbogay.
>>1010713You do you
True men believe in themselves and are secure with their manhood. A true man is not ashamed of their interests and they stand for what they believe in. Fashion, cooking, these were pursuits created by men and a man should be able to dress themselves and cook for themselves. It is manly to be self-sufficient, but a man also knows when to accept the help of others. Manly men.
“Just a man’s pride.” You take a subtle battle pose and try to sound cool.Hana exhales, but restraints herself from making a noise. Laki and Keira burst out into laughter. Val looks around confused but gives a few chuckle because of the laughter.Jane glares. “That’s a disrespectful joke for the temple.”Keira slaps her on the back, really messing up her menacing aura. “The clergy has a sense of humor, Jane. It’s encouraged.”“A man’s pride is a...what do you call it, slang for his dick.” Laki spells it out to Jane by leaning over Hana. Hana looks like she’s hyperventilating.“It’s also encouraged to be respectful inside a temple.” Jane replies to Keira. “And hold a certain level of-”Keira glares this time. “Are you lecturing me, a ghost -priestess-, on temple decorum?”Jane looks uncharacteristically flustered. You’d be panicking right now. She just has a slight aura and uncertainty. She glances around. “No.” She clears her throat. “I meant no disrespect. I-”Keira bursts into gut busting laughter and doubles over. “Oh you should see your face.”Jane sincerely offers what comes off as a very poor impression of someone with a good sense of humor laughing at themselves. You’re a little ashamed that you’re enjoying how uncomfortable she looks. You’re also glad that the focus is on her instead of your accidental double entendre.You turn back to Polu, “unless you want to bet something else?”He shakes his head. “Pride,” he leaves out the other word, “works fine by me.”Laki rolls her eyes. “Boring. I’ll give a reward to the winner, then. It’ll be a surprise.”You and the group find spot away from the temple to battle. You’re told it’s not nice to battle directly in the courtyard. There’s a spot within viewing distance by the river that’s perfect though. Apparently even the monks have battles here sometimes.Polu reaches for his pokeballs. “Ready?”You look to your pokemon. They all seem fine. Mace even looks especially more rested than usual. Bella has a strange edge of what you hope isn’t bloodlust. Bullylust, maybe? Some sort of Laki-like aura, anyway. Gobble looks like he’s getting to that point where he just starts getting barely hungry again, which you’re learning is when he’s most active.>Go Gobble and Belladonna>Go Gobble and Mace>Go Mace and Belladonna>Something else>Wait!

>>1011008Nice! Was it by chance, or were you hunting?
Someone wanna recap the story so far for me please?
>>1011372A guy started his Pokemon journey with new friends
>>1011372Herb is a young girlyboy wandering around the Loanah islands who is also a total badass when things get rough (but due to shit luck only when nobody's looking).He has a habit of befriending any wild pokemon he meets, and otherwise has basically done sweet fuck all other than trivial shit like bonding with his friends, getting a badge, and beating up a hydreigon with a frying pan.
>>1011382is it worth actually going back and reading the archives for this
>>1011384yesthe lewdbins alone are worth it
>>1011384Yes definitely, I was being facetious about the "nothing happened" part.Just keep in mind that this is a more laid back quest about coming of age rather than saving the world.
>>1011384There's no story-only compilation, so if you want any of that sweet, sweet context you had really ought to go back now rather than later.
>>1011384[This is a good opportunity for me to ask everyone in general: What can I do to make the quest more accessible to new people? A quest overview? Some sort of infographic?]
>>1011387>Recently: Bella evolved! You got involved in a temple debate. You had an underwear adventure with a girl>You had an underwear adventure with a girlCan I self insert as this main character and pretend I'm having underwear adventures with a (presumably cute) girl?
>>1011421Read and make up your mind>>1011415Maybe a short story so far thing in the pastbin. I think the problem last quest was that you tried to give too much detail with it.
>>1011415A broad recap of major events so far (or a link to one anyways) in each OP would go a long way, I'd imagine.
>>1008839Bottom left island is a giant cock, and the island next to it is the spooge it shoots.
>>1011415a pastebin with links to all the lewdbins would be useful, not sure if the KeiraXHerb pastebin has been linked in a thread, just on your twitter
Is there any fanart of the girls? For visualizations sake? By the way I'm only on the first thread right now, and this is very good Quest Master.
>>1011500no specific art yet, but we tend to use certain canon pokegirl art as a representation/reference for particular girls. (Laki uses olivia and candela art, Keira uses mallow, Val uses lillie, hana uses lana(?), Jane uses zinnia.)
>>1011517ignore the canon bit of that, we just use pokegirls we think look similar so far.
>>1011500Hana: Chicken-chan with Adam Jensen prosthetics.Keira: Mallow with body paint.Valerie: Lillie with even fancier rich girl clothes.Laki: That Team Valor leader lady, complete with a giant rack, but more athletic.Jane: That one dragon trainer girl from ORAS, with more anger.
>>1011415Honestly, I'm working on an edited story-only version that I'll send to you. I also plan on making a plot diagram to keep track of plot hooks and hints you've dropped that we haven't followed up on. We'll see if I manage to get it done, but if I do, I'll put it up in whatever thread we're on.
I want herb to catch a whismur.
>>1011562I don't want Herb to have permanent hearing damageExploud is ugly too
What's the name of the previous pokequest? The one with the lesbian that keeps being referred to?
>>1011569>>1011617[I am not a creative namer]
>>1011639While we're on the topic. Now that it's over who was your favorite character to write in the original Pokemon quest? Not counting Kat.Were there any side characters you wished had more screen time?Did that unofficial Normal gym ever become official? Does the leader still give out muffins to winners?
>>1011660>Did that unofficial Normal gym ever become official?Yea, it's stated sometimes in the um like actual league.
>>1011660I kind of wish vance's martial arts studies (moving like pokemon do) had developed into something. His character ended up being more about his relationship with his sister and Jenean, and that was probably a lot more interesting than Kung-mein-fu would have been.
>>1011639>[I am not a creative namer]We noticed when it took like 3 or 4 threads for Kat to even get a fake name Gobble
>we got a ice stone A-vulpix is imminent bros
>>1011794that, or its Nevermeltice
>>1011794We got a nevermelt ice. Handy for Gobbs if the tm was blizzard or ice beam.
>>1011339Completely by chance. My I'd is probably different cause I'm at work by the way.
>>1011639Your titles for each thread would like to disagree with you. Haha
>>1011415Also I agree with other anons a short story linked or included in the opening post would probably help new players.
Herb could get a Honedge! That way he can wield it and be a badass and everyone he's possessed. And the entire time the Honedge can be going "Holy shit! This guys nuts! I didn't sign up for this!"It would let Herb be a secret badass in the open and maintain plausible deniability. Speaking of. We should have done a write in for the self reflection and said secret badass.
>>1011899Honedge is a fun ghost Mon. I think his thoughts on bravery were reflection on the badass stuff he's done. It could also tie into his status as group rock, he pulls through in the clutch cause when people or Pokemon need him he'll be there to help.
What I'd really like to see is some flashbacks to Herb with his Grandpa. Seems like his Grandpa was an important role model for him and I'd like to learn more about him.
>>1011918Maybe we could remember something else down the line that isn't waifu cake.>>1011899I could see Herb giving a Shuppet / Bannette the love it never had. Plenty of Ghost would be interesting I think.
>>1011930honestly, too many Ghost pokemon need to be adopted and friends with HerbI'd like a Drifloon, partially cause I've been reading the pokemon manga and like Green's Jigglypuff. Herb riding along in a basket hanging from a Drifblim would be pretty funny too
>>1012004Ghost is factually the cutest type.
>spend an hour trying to draw these characters>it all looks like shitmeh
>>1012028to be fair, Water types give them some heavy competition
>>1012065wrong pic, no idea why that's in my pokemon folder
>>1012028Doesn't hurt that Ghost type trainers are also the cutest. So really, Ghost is just maximum cute.
>>1012113Can't argue with that
>>1011522What the hell is a chicken-chan? I thought Hana looked like the blue haired trial captain with more boobs.
>>1012128SM main protag. But she is still a local
>>1012113Or alternatively, also the cutest.
>>1012128the name comes from her silly hatPersonally I imagine Hana as brown chickenchan or a brown version of Gardenia
>>1012113>>1012148Also it's entirely coincidental that both images I posted have them hugging Mimikyu.
>>1012172That's not a coincidence, the community loves Mimikyu so it makes sense artists would draw pokegirls with it.
>>1012153Mfw My SM is basically Hana since I made chicken-chan light brown.
posting cute pictures, don't mind me
>>1012447top tier taste anonthough the best argument for Hana being represented by Lana is this pic
[Got some of the reflections done. Will post them once I clean them up. A little drunk at the moment so I'm sure they're full of errors.]>>1013079[Continue]>>1011660[I really liked writing Clair. She's such a bitch, but sympathetic. At least, in my eyes. She's a huge hypocrite and knows it, but that's what makes her so fun. Rules and personal codes mean nothing to her because of all the minds she's been inside and all the ways she's seen people violate their own belief systems and use mental gymnastics to pretend otherwise. She's been jaded since puberty. She's a pessimist, but still looks for hope and goodness in people. She doesn't find it with people's thoughts, but their actions despite their thoughts. I don't know if that always came across well, but those are my thoughts on her.Also she's a small doll of a girl and that's adorable and shortstacks are sexy.]
>>1013520>drunk GobbleTime for another Q&A
>>1013520>shortstacks are sexymy dark skined compatriot
>>1013520Are our pokemon included among the reflectors? Because after the comment that Mace has "become more dutiful" I really want to get inside that noggin of his. I bet palling around with literal babies has really instilled a sense of responsibility within him. We don't know much about Mace or Gobbs' lives before Herb, and I want to.
>>1013530Can we have Gobble Q&A?
>>1013520Are you truly a cool cutie with a bomb bootie girl or is that a fancy pokequest meme, a new reader wants to know
>>1012447I knew I couldn't be the only one.
>>1013553Just ask drunk gobble a question.>>1013561Lumberjacking builds a butt
>>1013561I think it's a mystery. I've been here since we found out about portion last quest, and I've only heard rumors, and even that which has come straight from the turkey's beak has been open to interpretation. I still want to flirt with Gobble either way. Because I can flirt only when I know nothing will grow out of it. We do know a few things though. Gobble likes girls. Not sure about boys. Can make websites. Is Canadian.
>>1013551[Mace is definitely the more seasoned, mature, older pokemon of the group. I'll write something for them. Non-humans are always tricky, but I think at this point each 'mon has a distinct personality.]>>1013553[If I don't immediately answer, I'll try to get around to it. Please don't be afraid to nag me on anything I miss. I don't like being too attention-grabby, but I also sometimes just drop the ball on replying. Always ask. I feel guilty about questions I miss. No question will offend (seriously I'll describe my butthole I don't give a fuck) me, but I won't answer doxxable stuff to any satisfying degree out of policy.]>>1013534[Damn skippy. Although, skinny small girls are sexy too. And big strong amazon girls. And tomboy older sister genki types in sundresses. And dark girls. And light girls.

>>1013593What are your thoughts on Pokephilia in general? You've obliquely referenced it twice for humor, but still. A lot of people compare it to shagging dogs, a lot of others are thirsty neckbeards that don't give a fuck.Personally, I feel there's bound to be some lemons going on with trainers running around in the wilderness with only their mons, especially at that age.
>>1013613Oh, wait! How have you liked ID's? Do they help you get a sense of people's personalities? Because I think there's always like one guy who posts ~10% of the comments each thread.
>>1013593>seriously I'll describe my butthole I don't give a fuckDo it. I dare you. You are dared.Who's your favorite girl in this quest?Do any of the characters have backstory stuff or dark secrets that you're really looking forward to us finding?
>>1013593Also, I found this and thought of you. I don't think you had this one?

SJW are cancer.]>>1013626[To each their own, in my personal opinion. It's not my thing, but there are some human-like pokemon and tentacle porn is hotter than most girls will admit. A Gardevior who is devoted and lusty isn't that terrible a fetish. But yeah, in some franchise canon stuff there is reference to human/pokemon relations. I think some cultures/areas would be more accepting than others]>>1013634>Who's your favorite girl in this quest?[Tough choice. I departed a bit from the original ideas for them. Hana and Laki were originally one character in my head, but I felt there were two very different stories there. As everyone gets more screentime, I think they get more distinct. The hardest to write is Valerie. But since she's not as popular I don't mind. I want to do her more justice than I did Jeanine, though.]>>1013641[Never seen that before. Nice.]>>1013653[Sometimes people write in stuff I never expected and it makes a hard fight much easier. I believe in letting creativity have a chance for all but the most blatantly dumb plans. Sometimes anons want to get to know throw-away NPCs or follow random stuff I just made up a lot. I like it. Most of the previous quest was made up on the spot because of surprises. Sometimes an anon will make a prediction that's much better than what I had in mind so I just do that instead. Sometimes players are super predictable, though, like wanting waifu stuff. As long as most people are having fun or at least invested, I'm very happy. I don't mind shitstorms though. I don't like to invite them and I don't fish for them, but I see it as people caring and being attached, and don't take it personally.]
>>1013656Eh, we did have a pretty strongly female cast, so I'm not surprised about that. It's more that there were details I would never have possibly known about lesbian sex that led me to believe gobble is a lesbian/bisexual woman.I still want Gobble to write boylove though. Maybe Polu's gotten himself hurt, and his hands are in casts, and he just needs relief, and what are bros for? A handy J between bros isn't gay, right? I heard it's only gay if the balls touch, right? No homo? And if that's not working, it only makes sense that Herb use his mouth, right? There's no difference between a guy's mouth and a girl's mouth, right? Or a guy's piercing blue eyes and a girl's, right? Or that soft skin and hair?
>>1013683>I'd like to make something like that canon.To the grass temple! The natives need our help!
>>1013683>To each their own, in my personal opinion.That's a very reasonable way of looking at it. Seems most normies would rather sleep on a Snorlax or Arcanine than fool around with a Gardevoir, those weirdos. It's still fun to speculate.
>>1013683What were your favorite and least favorite things that happened in the last quest and this one?
>>1013683Would it be possible for you to describe the girls in moderate detail? To have it compiled. I wanted to try drawfagging
>>1013739[Laki is tall, well built, and stacked. She's what you'd picture an Amazon as, maybe. Very thick, strong legs especially. I picture her as a sort of Korra body. Short hair, predator smile. Dark skin.Valerie is blonde, feminine, and proper. Likes to wear frilly things, mostly white.Keira is like others have said. Mallow with facepaint, but more on the small side. She's got her hair in buns. Under her face paint is freckles.Jane is half mainlander, half islander. Imagine Zinnia with an angry scowl and hyper competitive streak. Blue eyes, short hair. Win at all costs attitude.Hana I see as a mostly like chicken-chan, but with an Adam Jensen twist. Her limbs are varying degrees of missing, and her body has scars and burns. They're more subtle than she thinks. Polu I always pictured to be like a surfer/greaser mix version of Hau. He's been heavily influences by surfer movies and wants to be "mainlander cool."Herb I picture a lot like a much skinnier, younger Spark of Pokemon Go. Happy, smiling, golden innocence.]>>1013720[Most favorite? Voters embracing the lewd, and really wanting to develop Kat with an arc. Least favorite? The Hornbeam stuff. I feel like that mucked up a lot of pacing. The original theme was going to be genetics and parental legacy, but anons had Kat rejecting all that stuff from the get-go. Despite this, I pushed more of Hornbeam's angle, being a geneticist out of control. I think this was a mistake. I should have pivoted along with how Kat had developed and changed the theming focus for her external adversary. I like how she developed internally, though.]
>>1013778>Despite this, I pushed more of Hornbeam's angleIf you could do it again, what would you change?
>>1013778God I've been out of this for too long.I imagine if things had played out differently in the beginning, we may have stuck closer with a different companion and Belladonna would have picked up different quirks as a result. Mind fleshing out what she would have been like after her evolution for each of them? I'm real curious how you would have handled it if we gunned for Jane early on.Any chance we could hook play matchmaker with the girls? You've written a lot of good characters across the board and I'm going to feel guilty for picking just one to settle on.
>>1013778Hey, really enjoy your writing. Regardless of how you feel about the Hornbeam stuff, I honestly think you are one of the better QMs I've followed. The way you run quests has a nice feeling to them and I think it keeps us anons surprisingly civil most of the time due to your influence. Also I think it's interesting hearing you describe the themes of Pokemon Quest. Do you have any particular themes in mind for Pokemon Island Adventure Quest? Or is it too soon to tell?
>>1013778As one of the anons that was part of that shitstorm I will say it was mostly because that thread went super late for me and I regret it. You wrote the Hornbeam stuff well, but maybe went abit heavy on how much power the guy had after we thwarted him every time. Still one of the better QMs and still autism over your quest.
Oh, I've been curious as to how you decided what would be in our egg. Would it have been different if we had gotten our egg somewhere else?
>>1013798[My organizational skills. I was very sloppy about notes and pictures]>>1013864[It was more of Laki being one of the first things she saw.]>Any chance we could hook play matchmaker with the girls[I'm sorry, I don't understand the question.]>>1013886[Thanks!I think the themes shaping up right now have a lot of overlap; coming of age, figuring out who you are, etc. But specifically with Herb I think there's some stuff in there about what masculinity means. With a lot of other characters, there are things to explore like dealing with the unfairness of life, pressure to succeed, how others see you, and other typical teenager things. With the islands, there's a lot of cultural stuff, mostly revolving around traditions in the face of "losing a culture victory" to the mainland and exploring a little bit about nationalism, cultural relativity and values, xenophobia and identity. I don't want to get all political about anything, but that's a bit of a backdrop. time will tell what becomes a big focus and what gets left behind as we hammer through it.]>>1014148[Yeah, what was in the egg depended a bit on John's backstory behind it. I made a list and rolled for it in the end, but what was on there depended on the choices and how things were shaping up.]
>>1015727Sorry, I'm kinda sick and tired and tried writing two different sentences at the same time. It didn't work out.I would like Herb to play an active role in getting our cute girls hooked up with either other cute girls or cute boys since we can only keep one for ourselves. What are the chances of seeing my dream come true in this quest?
>>1015727There ever been something you've wanted to put in a post that you had to cut for being too lewd?
>>1015900I'm sure we'll get the chance to play wingman at some point or another. I want to do so for Polu in particular.>>1015727Hey, I'm pestering you about>>1013630
>>1016155Polu's said that there's a girl he likes back on his home island. I don't think he's gonna link up with any of the main castSo far we know that Laki would go for Val, so that's 2 of the 5 covered(provided we don't go with either of them)
>>1016241had a good laugh at that picture, Also, I suppose we could try and ship keira and jane if we don't go for either of them, keira's status and disposition seems to make a good counter to janes general attitude.No sure about hana though
>>1015900[Sure. Herb can definitely wingman. I was planning on that sort of stuff anyway.]>>1015972[I'd probably run a hentai quest if I didn't think it would get old. Nothing immediately comes to mind, but I'm sure there were moments.]>>1016155[Whoops. I missed that. Too be honest I don't pay that much attention to IDs except for votes, but it's nice. /qst/ has some good features. I feel like I've come to know specific posters by how they phrase or post for sure, though, even back in /tg/]>>1016241[That picture is perfect]
>>1016293>I feel like I've come to know specific posters by how they phrase or postIs that why I'm your favorite?
>>1016293Hey Gobble, you hang out in any quest chatrooms? Been searching my main ones for you, but there's no Gobble in sight
>>1016289There's a pretty solid chance Keira is straight, given her coenciding sexual awakening and introduction to boys. Val doesn't seem to have made up her mind. Jane could be ace for all we know.
>>1016388yeah, just finished reading that lewdbin with keira...also while I've heard the expression before what does Jane being ace mean? asexual?
I like Jane best I don't care what anyone else thinks. Hana and Laki are also acceptable. Are we still going to get lewdbins for the remaining girls Gobble? Also I never got to properly express my excitement for the thread since I was working.
>>1016454I like Jane, because I want to make her like us. She presents a challenge. She's also interesting and cute.Hana is a big dork, and somehow I feel like if I were in John's position, I'd be smitten with her.
>>1016426Yeah. Some people seemed upset about that bin, some thought it was no big deal, and some were skeeved out that some people thought it was no big deal. I thought it was an interesting opportunity to research sex crime laws. Best I could find was that what she did was "fourth degree criminal sexual conduct". There's no minimum sentence, and a maximum of two years in jail OR up to 500$ in fines. (Which seems like two wildly different sizes of punishment).I was mostly joking about Jane being asexual. While on the one hand the "ace trainer" pun is really good, and I think that having Herb date someone with hugely different needs would be interesting, she does seem to care about being desirable. (From what we've learned out of character.)
>>1016536well, even if Jane is asexual (Though I find it unlikely) we're building john as a support character, I think it would still be a cute relationship.
>>1016536I like Laki for a lot of the same reasons you mention her. She seems to really need a friend, her baggage is tied into her self-esteem as a Athlete and letting her country down. I'm not sure if Herb will be able to help her, but gosh darn it I want to see him try.
>>1016625... I feel like I'm missing context, still seems like the old adage that theres someone out there for everyone has some basis.
>>1016662Eh, I'm speculating at Herb's relationship with an asexual Jane. I doubt she'd be for an open relationship, and would also likely encourage Herb to excel at whatever he tries his hand at. She might take pride in being the only object of Herb's desire, and pose for him, or ask he not look at other girls. Those sorts of things reminded me of the world champion masturbator.
>>1016836huh... well thats interesting.I feel like John'd go for cooking contests though or start up that worry seed coffee business we've discussed before.
>>1016856He doesn't have to make it his "thing", or the absolute best. He just needs to get good enough so that Jane can brag that Herb lasts longer in bed than Laki's boyfriend ever could.
>>1016836>>1016895...Let's not do that, and do the cooking contests and worry seed coffee instead.
>>1016895>Herb lasts longer in bed than Herb ever could.That doesn't make sense. And why would Jane know? Is she timing Herb when he's with Laki?
So I originally meant for this to be you folks' Christmas present, but it didn't arrive until today. Sorry.Anyways, Merry Late Christmas!
>>1016972Aww, how cute! Well done, anon. Nice shiny!
>>1016972Now evolve her! Good shit dude
>>1016972Congratulations! You put in a lot of work, you deserve it.
>>1016942>>1016895>implying it wouldn't be a race to get Herb and Val off fastestAnd then there are the arguments about if worry seed coffee invalidates the resultsI'm hoping the next lewdbin continues the trend of requiring the girl to have seen Herb's pride. Jane during the time it took for her to get Herb his clothes would be nice
>>1017179I'd like a Jane-bin.Still waiting on those meditation bins we were supposed to get two days ago.Gobble.Gobble plz.
>>1017237I'm looking forward to Jane's meditation bin. I don't want to get a lewdbin with her quite yet, I feel like we should grow closer first. The girls should have a high opinion of us, rather than just wanting us for our body.
>>1017302but Jane does have a high opinion of Herb. Possibly the highest out of the entire cast.After all, only a genius manipulator could convince the entire cast she's the bad guy. And managing that takedown and subsequent escape? He's obviously a highly skilled gymnast, despite how small he is. The plantain incident was probably a ploy to throw her off her game and force these thoughts into her head
>>1017332Takedown and escape?And I don't want to be respected for presumed villainy. I want her to like us. That's what I mean about a high opinion.
>>1017332That's why we need to get her out of the way. She's the only one who knows.
>>1017441knocking her over and getting into the closet. It was really just our shit luck, but what are the chances that would happen?probably not the best way to phrase it, but i'm tired and mainlining espresso beans
>>1017441Wait, I'm an idiot. Takedown as in tackling her.
>>1016293Hey Gobble, what are the aura's of some of the other cast members?Writing this, I'm wondering what Keira's aura is. She's way too happy to be ghost, fairy would fit. Not sure what other type she might be, grass maybe. Also what character type would an electric aura fit? Really hyperactive, kinda like Eddie from Kat's quest?
>>1017569Hot. Imagine Laki/Jane as Silver and Herb as Lyra.>>1017599I wonder more about what a normal aura entails. Not that there's a temple that could offer particular insight.I wonder if we'll get a chance to seduce Polu's anti-mainlander sister.
>>1017692this is why I want to start a rival evil teamWe can recruit from the natives using Herb's magical ability to make friends and convert female rival gang members through his "pride"Hana and Laki can be his enforcers, they're both creepy strong. Jane and Keira get to be admins, Jane for her mild insanity, Keira for higher influence with the natives. Val gets to be the treasurer or something, so we can use her family fortune to fund the gang
>>1017710>Wanting harem>ruining herbs purityShame on youSHAME
>>1017739It is every Arceus-fearing conquistador's duty to convert heathens through lawful dickingsHerb must use his Arceus-given gifts to further His cause.Then he can have his true love join him from the mainland. And he can get a cape
>>1017710...is she snowballing him? I'm not into that. The rest of it does.I feel like Herb would start a reverse-gang. Like, he inspires kids to think that spontaneous acts of compassion and constructive activity are what's cool. Inclusiveness, that sort of thing. No initiation, no obligation to stay.>>1017739Herb is for loving, committed relationships.>>1017760We definitely need to get the 411 on Herb's life on the mainland. Where exactly is he from? Did he have friends? Family he left behind? Did he go to a church? Is he still devout?
>>1017818never noticed the snowball(and had to google what that is), I figured that was just spit and the art style was just trying to show it. Making something that's clear visible is difficult, from my (limited) experience. I hope it's obvious that I'm just meming about starting a gang. It wouldn't fit Herb at all and I'm hoping to avoid a harem ending
>>1017909I don't want a harem ending. A three some ending could be fine.
>>1017909It can be hard to tell whether someone's being genuine without the benefit of tone. There's no clear guidelines to say when clarifications should be provided in spoilers vs when explaining the joke is unnecessary and detrimental. (Like Seaking fandom or skub).>>1017934Eh, I'm all for a threesome episode, but not an ending.
>>1017934I can see a threesome working to stop a shitstorm, or at least replace one. Seems most people have a couple favorites, with Laki and Keira in the lead. Their personalities could allow for it as well, though there would have to be ingame justifications for it. I would expect Herb to have some serious moral conflict about it, seeing how he was raised in a culture(from what we know) that doesn't have threesomes as a normal relationship modelI'd prefer Herb hooking up with a single person, but won't be salty if there's a threesome
>>1016293>[I'd probably run a hentai quest if I didn't think it would get old.You'd be surprised how hard it is for lewd to get boring. I've had an erection every day of my life since puberty. And even if it does run it's life cycle quickly, just because something ends doesn't mean it doesn't have value. /Aco/ needs an experienced, dedicated qm like you. And you have the butts to fuel it. I'd be 100% dicks out for you to at least try.Lemme see. If I give it a bit of thought, there are a few options you could try. You could do something like the pokemon quests you've already done, but tonally different with an older, sluttier MC. You could do a monstergirl quest. You could do a corruption of champions setting for instance. If pokefucking rubs you the wrong way because of the bestiality thing, you could try it in a mystery dungeon setting. Hell, you do characters well enough I'd read one in an entirely non-fantasy setting. Make it about some regular college kid, dealing with rent instead of adventures. I've read plenty of straight-up porn comics before. Your smut's up with the best of them. Don't let a fear of "failure" get in the way of trying. Worst case scenario the thread dies. Just drop us a line if you do give it a go, yeah?
>>1018050>Gobble run CoC questplease no anon, I promised myself I'd do nofap
>>1018050what is /aco/?
>>1018110Adult cartoons. It's /h/ for western art. We had a quest that ran for a little while centering around a wizard. Last week the pokemon trap quest came back, but that... has a very different style. Definitely room for two.>>1018069Hey, you can always hit up the archives when you're done. Or just read it for the plot. I've done that with plenty of Gobble's lewdbins.
>>1016493I'm perpetually torn between Keira and Hana. They're both adorable, but if I had to know one of them in real life, Hana would probably be more up my alley. Out of all the characters, she feels the most like a real person to me.>>1017818> I feel like Herb would start a reverse-gang. Like, he inspires kids to think that spontaneous acts of compassion and constructive activity are what's cool. Inclusiveness, that sort of thing. No initiation, no obligation to stay.Herb's enough of a dork to think of that, but I think he'd be too busy being a huge dork to make it work properly. Laki would shove him into a locker and steal his lunch money, and then he'd be defeated.
>>1018002So long as the third person wasn't kinda odd man out like last time.
>>1018127RIP Bang Quest. Now there was an amazing drawfag, gone too soon from this world>>1018480yeah, luckily we met all the girls are roughly the same time, so they all have about the attachment. If we do end up going for the tricycle, I want the relationship to start at the same time so we don't have Herb with a primary and secondary gfWhile I don't like Laki for Herb, I did find this pic that is pretty much how I imagine her
>>1018614>not wanting a gf who can spot you
>>1016836Does his shirt say "Love Me Tender"? That's fukking gold.
It's a Laki. I dunno if anyone has done these already, but I'm going for it.
>>1018656Val better watch the fuck out
>>1018696http://www.rinmarugames.com/playgame.php?game_link=mega-anime-avatar-creatorJust did something different cuz they don't h ave chicke-chan hair
>>1018717I think Hana is slightly more tan than that.
>>1018717Hana's naitive. Light for one, but honestly I imagined her at what you have Laki at and Laki as a little darker.
>>1018725>>1018731Thought she was pale for whatever reason.
>>1018742oops, wrong one. Darker she goes
>>1018742This one's probably a good tone for Jane.
>>1018745And when something lewd happens in her presence.>>1018746Was thinking the same thing actually.
I wish I could have made her look more competitive instead of just pissed, but there wasn't any good scowls.
>>1018836In that dress thingy from the feast.
>>1018687This is the one I did for Laki.
>>1018687A different Anon also recolored/edited this for Laki.
>>1017710>aggressive recruitmentThis is more like breaking your company's policy of dating the rival company
>>1018939>>1018944Yeah, that's the skin tone I had Laki, Keira, and Polu pegged for. I can't remember fur certain, but I think Gobble might have said Keira was a little lighter, though.
>>1019602Gobble's said that Keira has tan lines from the body paint. She's probably a bit lighter where the paint covers
>>1013683I'm loving the characters, love laki, want more jane, love the dynamic jane lewd idea in the cupboard, she's convinced he's trying to throw him off her game, but not this time, she's not letting it happen again, so she in a psychotic paranoid way, gives a standing HJ, rubbing his plantain against her poke pouch, while their body's are pressed against eachother, getting excited how she's finally got the upper hand, while herb can't do anything, he's cornered literally with monks outside, victory is hers and she's basically high on the adrenaline of beating herb into submission without falling for his schemes ( really the she's completely obsessed with him, he's all she can think about, and now he's cornered and she can blackmail him, some weird psycho tsindere mega crush)
seeing how there's no option to add facepaint, I figured this was after the mating dance and in the nest she built that is totally a canon part of the local culture
>>1020936[How did you know she has freckles?]
>>1020988You said so before
>>1020988You told us though Gobble.
>>1020988you told us? here>>1013778
>>1021003>>1021006>>1021007>>1021008[Ah. Cool. Nice attention to detail!]
>>1021039You need a liver to run quests, Gobble.
>>1021039What kind of clothing does Jane typically wear?
>>1021039How are the meditations coming? I'm waiting with baited breath here.
>>1021169[Tank top and shorts. Simple and sensible]>>1021174[Mostly done. I can dump what I have]
Valerie: I don’t know. I’m not really close to anyone. The closest person to me since I started is probably Hana. She’s nice. And she knows a lot about mainland culture and doesn’t mind filling me in. I didn’t want to use my yacht, but I know she has medical needs. She must be more conscious about her body than I thought because whenever she goes to her cabin to recharge she stays there for a long time and I swear I hear sobbing and buzzing.Laki is probably the peer I know the second best. She’s very...assertive. I can’t believe I let things get so far when we went out to the woods together. She’s just so open about what she wants and goes for it. I wish I had that confidence. I know I’m pretty, but I never feel like I am. I know I’m well educated, but I feel so ignorant. How does Laki do it?Herb seems like a nice fellow, too. And it’s nice to see another mainlander who doesn’t know what’s going on. He seems well intentioned...but he does so much to please everyone. I don’t think he thinks highly of himself.Ugh. I’m still so embarrassed about forgetting his money. Typical rich girl stereotype. I just want to be like everyone else.I suppose that Jane girl is the one I’m least connected too. What a mean...bitch! She’s a bitch. She had her pokemon beat up Lillipup so harshly. I know it was a battle, but she was so drastic about it. All the other battles I see have this sense of honor or sportsmanship to them.I suppose I could try reaching out to her. Maybe she needs a friend?Maybe she needs a good kick in the ass.Arceus I hate how tight her ass is! How does she do it? How does Laki do it? Gah! These girls aren’t even using makeup and they’re so pretty. It’s not fair!No. Your value isn’t in how pretty you are. Remember what papa taught you; Lots of people are born without much, but what matters is how hard they try.And you’re going to try.Oh shoot. The ceremony is starting! Quick. Look poised!
Keira: I like the electric temple. The people here are so laid back. They don’t make everything into a big deal. I know I shouldn’t compare, we all have a role to play in life and death. But they’re one of my favorite temples to visit. The gizmos and stuff they work on aren’t my thing, but I’m starting to get why they like technology and progress so much. But like the elders on Eelilee say; you must maintain tradition to see the past and all those that come before you.Who am I least close to? Hmmm. Nincada understands me. Same with Tropius. I’m blessed to have such nice pokemon on my journey. I’m surprised at how close I feel to Herb, since they always said outsiders have trouble understanding us. Herb doesn’t know our ways, but there’s an instinct there. He knows compassion and empathy. I bet he’d make a good cleric.If I had to choose someone I’m least close to, it’s got to be Polu. He’s always avoiding me. The elders say that Kontote people can’t be trusted, but they said the same thing about mainlanders and so far Herb and Valerie seem nice. And they’re happy to take Jacobs money. Maybe they’re not-No. I’m not supposed to question elders. They know things I don’t.But nobody told me what sleeping with a boy would be like. Or smelling a boy. Or wanting to touch a boy, or kiss one...Back to the task at hand! I’m a master meditator. I think about Polu. How can I improve my connection with him? Maybe just try talking to him more, I guess. Maybe Herb knows more about him.
>>1021236Jane canonically has a tight ass. Good to know.
Hana: Everytime I think about electricity, I think about that King Hydreigon movie where the giant Hydreigon was zapped by that power station. That was a great movie. Must have seen that a million times.But I guess I should reflect on the connections I’ve made.I’m glad Valerie is so accommodating. I hate being a burden. I know she doesn't want to use her high tech tent or yacht, but she’s been nice enough not to say anything. Still, she’ll start hating me eventually. Everyone looking after a needy cripple always does.Is that why I never reach out to people? I’m afraid they’ll hate me because of how broken I am?No. People and pokemon aren’t like that. Nobody hates the cripple. Pity, sometimes. But I’m not exactly at a disadvantage. I bet I could overpower even Laki if it came to it. I probably should say that out loud, though.I’m worried about letting people get close because I’m a deviant, movie obsessed loser. It’s not my body that I’m afraid of showing people. It’s my personality.I shouldn’t think like that. This is where I came from. I should focus on what Brother Hoon told me. Where is my weakest connection?Not Herb. He’s nice. And we had our talk before. I’m still so embarrassed that he knows about my arm. I’m glad he’s understanding and not a gossip.It just occured to me that Herb knows my favorite way to get myself off. I wonder if he thinks about it when he does it. Just the thought...Nah. He’s got lots of pretty girls around to think about. I wouldn’t be on his mind.Val is becoming a friend quickly, so not her. Not Keira, either. She had a nice talk with me. She doesn’t dance around my limbs. She just asks outright and doesn’t show any pity. That’s refreshing. Weird, but refreshing. You know what? It’s not Polu or Jane either. Polu is interested in surfing the same way I’m interested in movies. I feel like even if we aren’t close, we get each other. At least, we get having a passion about something everyone else doesn’t care about. And Jane? Well, I understand how she feels, disconnected from the region. I spent so much time in a mainlander hospital that I’m a halfie myself.Halfie. That’s a funny word. It has a different meaning for me, I suppose.But getting back on track. I’m probably least close to Laki.I wonder what she thinks about me. I see the way looks at Valerie. And Herb. I think there’s even some sexual tension between her and Jane, the way they’re always bumping chests and staring each other down. Maybe I just hope there is. That would be so hot.(continued)
>>1021263Yeah. Laki is who I should connect to. I hope she doesn’t hate me. She never really talks to me.I hope she wants to do things to me.No nonono. Laki probably feels awkward, like most people. More so. She’s an athlete. What are we going to talk about, sore legs? Spending a lot of time inside watching movies?I guess if Laki doesn’t know what to say, I should make the first move. I hate feeling so awkward, but that’s more reason to try. I promised I’d go out and live, and I’ll do it. I owe it to her.
>>1021263>>1021266Oh, Hana. Even more proof she needs a million hugs.Also an unleashed Hana and Laki would be the death of Herb.
>>1021263>I see the way looks at Valerie.>the way looks atPretty sure that's a butt Gobble.
>>1021263>I probably should say that out loud, though.did you mean shouldn't?
JanexLaki lewdbin when?
>>1021252>And they’re happy to take Jacobs money.I'm afraid I'm not following the meaning of this sentence. Does "they" refer to Herb and Val or to the elders? Is a negative missing?
>>1021281>>1021284[Yeah those were not proofread.]>>1021317[Elders[
>>1021284No, this'll be how she starts connecting with Laki. Remind her about her insecurity over her failure as an athlete, and they can bond over their personal flavors of self-hatred.
>>1021323And then they take it out on Herb?
>>1021321Wow, awesome! I liked all the meditations. I've got more love in my heart for all the girls now. Was Jane there too? Will we see a meditation for Jane as well?
>>1021321did Laki meditate?
>>1021396She was there, but I think Gobble's dumped everything they have so far.
>>1021353Why do you hate Herb's skeletal structure so much anon?
>>1021396[There's a Jane one. The rest aren't done yet. We'll have the remaining ones done tomorrow.]
>>1021405He's young, he can take it.
>>1021408Great, I'll be looking forward to it. Some nice characterization going on in them. Got me even a little misty eye'd with Han's meditation.
>>1021353They are the two most lewd character, right? I'm sure alcohol will be involved with the Laki/Hana bonding too. It's inevitable.
>>1021414I'm sure the two will hit it off real fast after Hana builds up the courage. The two could co-miserate, as the other anon said, and they'd probably find one another to be pretty refreshing personalities.The second Hana mentions something lewd and Laki presses for more details will be amazing. That's where everything would take off.
>>1021414Hana is your typical 4chan user. She's full of lewd thoughs, and kinky as hell, but she's shy when it comes to actually getting action because she's a nerd and a sperg. At least that's the impression I got.
>>1021437[That's pretty dead on. She hides her power level a lot.]
>>1021410"I'm sorry Mrs.WhateverHerb'sLastNameIs, there was nothing we could do. His ilium and three lower vertebra were crushed into dust, to say nothing of the rest of his lower body. That much injury, coupled with such severe dehydration, led to his respiratory system shutting down. He's at peace now."
>>1021455>everyone is crying>Herb has a huge grin, frozen in place by rigor mortis, forever there until death finishes taking its toll.
>>1021455>his dad's face when
>>1021445>>1021437Oh god. I'm actually a little terrified now. Hana has the ideas. Laki has the will to carry them through. If Hana learns to be forceful from Laki, we are actually going to die by snu-snu.It's... beautiful. We need to make it happen in a lewdbin. Probably not actual death, but hospitalization due to pelvic destruction would make for an entertaining ending.
>>1021484>>1021514Finally a chance to use this image, Laki already got a lewdbin but Hana could do this on her own her revealing her power level of lewd to Herb. It'd be cute, scary and hot all at the same time.
>>1021514Hana deserves someone who's as much of a sperg as her like me
>>1021549But anon Hana isn't a real girl, but I also thing that she is a pretty great character.
>>1021539I imagine if both were drunk, Laki would be egging Hana on and want to join in. She'd end up getting a little more than she bargained for as Hana decided to reveal her power level, self-consciousness and good taste be damned.It would probably play out like Laki's bin, where it all happens in Hana's head. Power trip fantasy where she overpowers and sexes both Laki and Herb? It'd fit her fantasies, I'm sure.FYI, I'm torn between Hana and Kiera as best girl. Stuff like this is why I lean Hana.
>>1021570I'm sorry namefag, but Laki is eternal best girl
>>1021514Honestly, I'm waiting for the scene where Herb lays down the law and tells whatever girl has decided she can grope his rare bone just where his boundaries are. Stands up for himself, you know? I feel like that he should at least do so if any one girl tries her luck twice.
>>1021584is it easy, living with no sense of taste?Probably makes health food much more enjoyable
>>1021584You have my respect, anon. Even if only one girl can be best girl, all are waifu-tier. Personally, I like Laki for the same reasons Hana does.
>>1021602>implying he won't be stuttering and stumbling over his words as he does it to the point that it's more of a request than "laying down the law"
>>1021602>"Look Laki, you can grope my rare bone all you want! We're dating now, but you need to let me go into your fun tunnel in exchange!"
>>1021614If he can keep his cool with a sharpedo and hydriegon, and give Polu the what's-what about how he felt, he can probably say "no." These girls need to be taught that yes means yes, Jesus.
>>1021629>he really thinks the hero facing down danger when he has to somehow means he won't be shy and nervous in bedI'm gonna bully you for that.
>>1021662I think "in bed" and sexual harassment are distinctly different settings.Bullying isn't a kink of mine but I'm willing to give it a go. Bully away.
>>1021662>he thinks that people become nervous wrecks incapable of speech the instant anything sexual happensYou need to watch less anime anon.
>>1021662He>>1021692Has a point, not everyone is antisocial channers
>>1021692Somehow I doubt Herb is going to be any more assertive in bed than he is outside of it.>>1021690I only have two bullying images. I probably need more.
>>1021716It's not about how assertive he is in bed, he can get dom'ed by whichever waifu we pursue. It's about setting up boundaries and making it more than physical.Basically saying that they won't do anything both parties are comfortable with. Even hardcore BDSM freaks do it, and I don't see Herb as anything but vanilla
>>1021716I doubt he'd be any less assertive either, and he's gotten in some good practice for being firm, yet gentle.Tell me I'm wrong. Say I've been a shortsighted, irrational boy. We'll see if that does anything for me.>>1021728>both parties areMissing a negative.
>>1021728>Basically saying they won't do anything both parties aren't comfortable withThat's understandable, it's more that "Herb" and "laying down the law" don't really belong in the same sentence unless he's in badass mode.
>>1021737shoot, have an apology butt
>>1021742I see it more as Herb saying what he's okay with, and expecting the person he loves/is dating to abide by his feelingsSure it's not really a law, but it's an act of trust in the other person that (in a normal relationship) usually won't be broken
[In bed I see Herb as being a pretty conceding guy to the point of being pushed too far and going full badass/JUSTICE mode.I see Laki as being very dominant in bed unless her partner unlocks her hidden soft side. Normally she'd just take what she wants. Even getting cum on her face, she wouldn't ask for it, she'd consider herself as taking it.Hana would be a dominant guy's dream. Very submissive, up for anything. With Herb she might have trouble actually getting anywhere because she'd be trying to get him to initiate, but once that flood gate opens she'd be slurping that gogurt down 24/7.]
>>1021809I think it's on fair to get information on the full castincluding the gym MILF
>>1021784Not just with whoever his love interest is, but his friends. It's easy standing up to enemies, it's hard standing up to your friends. I feel like that's something Herb will have to learn to get good at.>>1021809You see, this is exactly why good communication is important. Nobody's going to know you want to be submissive if you don't let them know. Nobody's going to know you don't want to be pushed around unless you let them know.Herb would be a sensitive lover who asks lots of questions, not out of nervousness or naïveté, but because he wants to quickly zero in on his lover's needs and turn-ons.
>>1021809Way to shatter my illusion of Hana going full dom to live out her fantasies, Gobble. She definitely needs some Laki training IC. Herb needs to help make it happen.I also just depressed myself by imagining someone going a mind break route on Hana to make her even more sub. I get the feeling it wouldn't be hard. My brain hates me.
>>1021809I for one embrace the debauchery to come. Seems like things are gonna be interesting regardless who wins the Herbowl.
>>1021853Intrusive thoughts like that suck. I've taken to just literally shaking my head on reflex. Helped me during bad times.>>1021861No matter what character wins, we win too!
>>1021816[Jane would make it an absolute competition and lose hard and blame Herb for his devious dick. If you somehow got through her shell, she'd still be very pro-active.Polu would be very cute and loving. Tender but fun. His main goal would be making his partner happy.Keira would have no idea what to do but be an eager learner, and probably ask advice at very inopportune times. She'd congratulate Herb on every successful bedding. Probably high five after.Val is hard to pin down. She's be a little bit of everything. She's a pretty balanced girl. She's practical and not very romantic, but also a little out of touch about what being practical really means to 99% of the population. She's confident about her looks, but not about her experience or skill (in life and bed).>>1021853If Hana actually felt secure about herself, she'd be very dom. But as of right now she's just an extremely hopeful sub who doesn't know how to communicate what she wants, which is loads down her throat, and other things that make her feel (sexually) useful]. She needs someone who'd make improving her self-worth a priority. If she actually felt like she was safe with it without worrying about making the one guy who'd tolerate having to date her hate her, she'd very much be all over that.Kalty's wife wants another kid and would not waste a chance to try to get one. She does not actually see Herb as a potential partner. She's very loyal. She just wants her husband's attention more and feels neglected.]
>>1021902Fug, I'm starting to teeter between Hana and Laki now.
>>1021913Yeah, Laki and Hana are great.Keira would be a good sex friend, not girlfriend.
>>1021853>>1021902[Like with Hana, if she and Herb started dating and she wanted to do it but he wanted to wait before losing his V-card, she'd be very understanding but at the same time hint that other holes totally don't count.Laki would say okay, very bluntly say that other holes don't count, and do everything she can to make him change his mind.. Most of which includes pinning him against the wall and teasing, groping, and taunting But still accepting no as an answer.]
>>1021926Cool, Herb confirmed for virgin. This is gonna be fun fuckbois!
>>1021923>he doesn't high five his gf after sex
>>1021913In the waifu wars, many are made into turncoats.Join us!Join us!Hana/Laki/Herb all the way!Need to get Keira involved somehow. That'd round out my favorite characters... I may need an organizational chart to keep all my shipping straight.
>>1021939my ex isn't coordinated enough to high five when I'm done with her.
>>1021902Now there's a bin idea. Mr. and Mrs. decide to try for another kid.Also, I could actually see Herb and Keira sexually experimenting with each other outside of a romantic context. Not usually super into that, but it works there.Also also, I'm finding more and more that Hana and Polu are the best romance options.>>1021926>takes no for an answer.Huge turn on. The best.>>1021936But is he kissless? I'm gunning for yes!>>1021940>Wants to keep his shipping straight.But yaoi is the purest form of love, anon.
>>1021967Guy love is eh. But Polu seems cool enough, so I can experiment with including it as an option. It'll make a real mess of things on the girl end, though. Is it really worth the effort?
>>1021993Eh, Polu's already got an object of his affections. I just don't want to rule it out on principle, you know? That way if the timing and mood ever is right, we can at least give it a shot. I want Herb to impress Polu with his 8/4 zap canon.
>>1022015I figure if that ever happened, it'd be on the basis that Polu is okay with having a guy sex friend, but prefers women romantically. I don't think I could say the same for Herb, though. The confusion would probably make it difficult for Herb to be fully open with the girl of his choice, and that'd be bad for the relationship in general.So let's try and tie everything off. Assuming a casual relationship with Polu, I could see Kiera, Laki, or Hana being okay with it and being willing to help Herb work through his confused feelings. Val would need Laki or Hana to tie her off. Jane is up in the air. Maybe Hana going sub would be stabilizing for her? Kiera could be okay on her own, but I'd rather not have anyone on their own.So, end result there is unknown girl<->Polu<->Herb<->Kiera. Hana<->Jane. Val<->Laki. Laki and Hana could be switched, but I'm doubtful on Jane and Laki forming a relationship. I have trouble believing in opposites attract when the two sides clearly hate each other.
>>1022060Do we know what Jane's sexuality is? She might be straight. Val's willing to experiment, but since she hasn't done so yet we don't know if she's actually straight or mostly straight or fully Bi or what.Also, I feel like if there's any time to be confused about your sexual and romantic preferences, it's about Herb's age. Having a guy and a girl sex friend would definitely force him to confront those clashing beliefs. It's a route I don't expect to happen, but if I were playing this game by myself I'd want to see what happens.We very well might see more dating outside the group once we've route-locked. Who knows, maybe Jane will seduce our sister or something.
>>1022095You know what? I can see that happening. She'd do it in the hope of getting more info on Herb. It'd also give her some leverage over him in the event they're ever at odds.Unless he's just using his family as a cover. If she takes her time trying to cozy up with them and it turns out Herb has kept them in the dark about his true manipulative tendencies, he could counter by further undermining her reputation and accumulating more allies. She'd end up leaving with nothing and facing an even more entrenched opponent! Should she really go through with it, or think up another plan? So much shadowrunning to do...
>>1022117I feel like if Herb found out someone was using their relationship with his sister as a tool it'd be an appropriate time for badass Herb to come out. In fact, I think all of the badass we've seen from Herb so far has been either feats of strength or friendship, none borne out of enimosity. Even standing up to Kalty was him talking out what made him uncomfortable.
>>1021809>I see Laki as being very dominant in bed unless her partner unlocks her hidden soft side.I hate this. I hate this so much cause that's always the case.
>>1022377I'm not sure why every dom has to have a secret sub side, but if I can deal with it you can too anon.
>>1022377I have secret confirmation that [spoilers]she's actually a sub.[/spoiler]
So I figured out my Belladonna's IV's>HP: 24>Atk: 23>Def: 21>Sp. Atk: 26>Sp. Def: 27>Speed: 19
>>1022553Time to transfer and hyper train
>>1022377>>1022473>Implying a soft side is a submissive side.It's almost like you don't even understand what Doms are about. Every Dom cares for their sub and if they don't they shouldn't be Domming in the first place.
>>1022553>Speed: 19I'm sorry.
The more information we get on Hana and Laki the more I wish to waifu them. Jane is still my favorite though.

Jane: What’s he planning? What’s he up to?What was his game last night? Is he really a vulnerable guy, or am I being played?No. Nobody packing what he’s packing has body issues.I can’t believe I touched it. Twice. What was I thinking? The first time was an accident, but the second? I wanted control. But now he probably thinks he’s seduced me. Hmph. I’ll show him. I’ll show them all.Think. This is a tradition. It deserves your whole focus. Who am I least close to? Not my pokemon. We spend so much time training together. They understand the slightest nod from me. Laki? No, we have a connection. Just not a positive one. That perverted Hana girl? She’s an outsider like me. Polu? No. He’s not a rival on the level of John, but he’s someone to keep an eye on. He could be a problem if I underestimate him. Keira? She’s the embodiment of our culture. There’s no way I’m not connected to our culture.Who am I least close to? Dad. But that’s a connection that isn’t getting fixed.Valerie. That’s who I should connect to. I don’t understand a thing about her. Her dad is a major player from the mainland, but she’s journeying with us? Why? What’s her endgame? Should I even try to make friends in a mainlander?That’s a dumb question. Who would want to be my friend?
Laki: I know I should value these things while I’m here, but I’m just so bored. You know why people drink? Because it’s better than being alone with their thoughts without a break like this.Shut up. Think. Where is my weakest connection? My brothers? Nah. Wailmer? Maybe. I haven’t had much of a chance to get to know it. I can’t believe I caught it without thinking. Still, everything I know says it should be easy to care for, despite it’s size.What about Chattot? It’s not a strong connection, but I think we get along well. What’s weird though, is how well I get along with Bella. She’s just such a cutie! And it’s nice to be a bit like her mommy. I don’t know what it is, but I just love how she looks up to me. I guess it reminds me a lot of how things were before the games.Wailmer is who I should concentrate on. We barely know each other, but as a trainer, I should make it my priority to connect.
>>1023159>Who would want to be my friend?;_;also, I recommend she gets a toxapex, seems a fitting pokemon.
Bella: Why is Herb sitting around? Is he growing? It’s dark in here.Laki is doing it too.Laki said I’m pretty! And cute! And showed me how to go for what I want. She’s a good teacher. And Herb showed me a lot of moves and every day I’m getting better at battling. I hope we get to spent more time outside soon.I want to bully Mace. He’s so strong and dutiful. Laki likes to bully master and make him nervous. It seems so fun.I'm thirsty.
>>1023175Bella is cute CUUUUTE!She has good taste and wants to bully mace.
Polu: This isn’t a bad tradition. I like it. I know I should be careful about this sort of thing, but I can’t see any harm in this.Who should I improve my connections with? Well, Herb and I are doing well. I like that guy. He’s got a good spirit. And Jane might have a lot of anger, but I think as one of my rivals I can really connected over time. Even when we battled before I felt something.Keira...well, probably best if I don’t get too close there. Might say the wrong thing.Valerie. Yeah. I don’t know anything about how she thinks. She sure is cute. All the movies I saw had blondes being way bustier, though. But yeah, I should get to know her better. What do I even say? Herb is laid back and likes boobs, so that’s an easy opening. Maybe Val likes them too? She looks at Laki sometimes.
>>1023191Oh Polu, I just want to be his best bro
Mace: Is Herb going to make more of those noodles? I like the bread, but I hope he keeps up with the noodles. I got used to those.I shouldn’t let that distract me. I should keep listening for anything. Herb and everyone else seem so oblivious to the dangers of the world. He even almost got me in serious trouble in that machine before. I trust him, but sometimes he’s just so naive.The whole world wants to destroy you. Or at least, it’s indifferent to doing it. Everyone wants you to change or evolve, but what if I like who I am? Changing means the death of my identity. You’ve got to maintain who you are because the winds and rains and pressures of the world will turn you into something you weren’t.Just look at Belladonna. She’s gone from being an egg, to being a small, cute plant (as cute as a grass pokemon can be, anyway) to being this new thing. I guess that’s okay if that’s what she wants, but it’s not for me. I guess change itself isn’t so bad, but everything always moves too fast. I’ve been around for a long time and it seems like everything is moving faster and faster. Can’t we just slow things down a bit?But that’s why I like Herb. He has a lot to learn, but he’s taking things slow with me. I never thought I’d meet a trainer like that. But he needs me to keep vigilant while he learns how the world works.
>>1023240Mace is the best. Just how old is he though?
>>1023240>Changing means the death of my identity. Oh god, do not teach him the Ship of Theseus thought experiment
>>1023240>(as cute as a grass pokemon can be, anyway)he's gonna get bullied so hard
>>1023240Life goes by so fastYou only wanna do what you think is rightClose your eyes and it's pastStory of my life
>>1023240Mace is a philosopher.Bella gonna bully.
>>1023104She came one set of plot armor away from being responsible for the destruction of the earth. She's the sort who should be sterilized instead of procreating, and that's not something I say lightly.>>1023105Even setting aside that they obviously had no clear idea whether the doomed parallel world claim was plausible or not, she could have easily said "Okay, let's keep that in reserve while we try my ancient legend bullshit first." Instead she just destroys it because reasons.>>1023240I like how Mace is really philosophical here, it gives him a lot of depth that Bella and Gobble don't really have.
>>1023317>sterilizing my wifeplease do not think of such mean things, she was only trying to help
>>1023376you wife is a whore if all the pictures I saved have anything to say about it
>>1023240Jesus, just how old is Mace? Little guy probably saw the first mainlanders landing on the beach in the Victoria.Mace has seen some shit
[Alright! We're starting back up. Sorry for the delay. I'll keep it in this thread.]
>>1023437Yes we're back!
“Go Gobble! Go Mace!”Both pokemon go running to the battle area. Mace’s brace restricts his freedom of movement a little. A few bursts of energy come out, reminding you of some sort of F1 racer revving it’s engines.Gobble cracks his neck. As lazy as he gets, even he seems eager to get in a good brawl here. He looks back to you with a question.“Yes, you can have more bread after.”He nods.Polu’s two pokemon appear, too. Spiritomb, and Aron. Aron bounces from side to side in anticipation, while Spiritomb drags itself forward lazily. It’s spooky smile and cackle make you flinch a little. You see Keira shiver, then decide to go gather some berries instead of watch the battle.Jane’s eyes narrow as she watches. You doubt a single detail will get by her. She produces a notepad.Valerie has her pokemon do a cheer routine. She’s not picking a side. At least, nothing yet. They do a little cheer for each pokemon that comes go.“Let’s do this!” Polu takes you out of your thoughts. “Spiritomb, Hypnosis! Aron, Mud Slap!”You see the Spiritomb still has that tag that lets it be touched by Normal things.>Have your pokemon turn away/defend for now.>Mace! Iron Defense, Gobble, Lick that Ghost!>Play the odds. “Mace, Mud Slap Aron, Gobble, Metronome!”>Go offensive off the bat. “Gobble, Focus Punch Spiritomb, Mace, Headbutt it!”>Something else
>>1023493>>Play the odds. “Mace, Mud Slap Aron, Gobble, Metronome!”
>>1023493>Gobble, Focus Punch Aron. Mace, Rock Blast on Spiritomb!
>>1023493>>Play the odds. “Mace, Mud Slap Aron, Gobble, Metronome!”save the focus punches for Aron
>>1023493>Play the odds. “Mace, Mud Slap Aron, Gobble, Metronome!”
>>1023493>Play the odds. “Mace, Mud Slap Aron, Gobble, Metronome!”Spin and win!
>>1023380Maybe whatever horrible non-canon pictures you have saved of her gives you that impression but all the pictures I've saved are nothing but vanilla sweetness and gentle handholding!
>>1023493>Mace! Iron Defense, Gobble, Lick that Ghost!Eventually we need to teach Gobble snore and sleep talk
>>1023493>Go offensive off the bat. “Gobble, Focus Punch Spiritomb, Mace, Headbutt it!”Just in case someone wants to lick Spiritomb, remember that it's part Dark and has his immunity to Normal negated. Lick would only be good for the paralysis chance.
>>1023175>I hope we get to spent>>1023191>I can really connected>>1023493>that comes goButt time.>Go offensive off the bat. “Gobble, Focus Punch Spiritomb, Mace, Headbutt it!”
>>1023528Her deliberate actions nearly resulted in the destruction of the earth.She belongs in pokeprison, anon.
>>1023539True I forgot about that, looks like mudslap and metronome is in the lead though but he could still get paralyzed even if it isn't super effective

>>1023687I am. The more they flood the market the less my initial investments are worth. I'm bleeding equity, here.
>>1023240Never let it be said that Mace isn't best rock.>>1023437Awwwww yis.
>>1023681of course it is, they'll crash the marketall the prime waifus you had stored in the bank will be worth nothing thanks to Nintendo's lack of controlAnd that's not even getting into the chaos that will happen when people don't trust in government waifu bonds. We'll have total collapse of the world economy
>>1023711Oh I like her hair.
>>1023711>implying everyone will try to visit their waifu at once to cause a crash
>>1023717>>1023716You never saw the waifu panic of '09. People went to cash in their fap folders and the banks had nothing - nothing. Many of them just closed down altogether.
>>1023727That's why I keep all my waifus under my mattress
Despite their lack of speed, they’re still moving faster than your pokemon. Aron, being more eager, runs towards Gobble and hits him with a Mud Slap, barely. Still, it gets in his eyes.Mace counters with a Mud Slap of his own. Hard, heavy, and with a satisfying smacking sound that makes Aron almost trip as it comes running around the side. It’s a critical hit!“Good job, Mace!”Mace makes an acknowledging noise, but keeps facing the circling Aron. the metal pokemon has a heavy layer of mud obstructing it’s ability to see.“Gobble, now, Metronome!”Gobble waggles his fingers, concentrates, and sniffs!What was that?He narrows his view on Spiritomb. Like he’s got it locked on no matter what.“Spiritomb, come on.” Polu pleads, scratching behind his own head. “Hypnosis!”Spiritomb brings it’s face around and it’s eyes spin. It’s so...distracting...You shake your head. But when you focus again, you see Mace has fallen asleep.“Good job, Spiritomb!” Polu yells.It hisses back at him, but there’s less vitriol in it than last time.You hope this doesn’t last long. Gobble is alone otherwise.>Gobble, shake Mace awake!>Gobble, Metronome again!>Focus Punch! (specify target)>Defend and dodge until Mace wakes up, let them wear themselves out>Amnesia, get that Special Ddefense up!>Something else
>>1023731>>Focus Punch! (specify target)Aron
>>1023731>Gobble, Chip Away on Spiritomb!
>>1023731>Focus Punch! (specify target)Spiritomb
Why Focus Punch when Gobble is our only Pokemon that can move? Polu can just double down on Gobble then he can't focus.
>>1023731>Focus Punch! (specify target)Spirtomb
>>1023731>>Focus Punch! (specify target)Spiritomb>Yell at Mace to wake up, he's got great hearing so it should work.
>>1023731>Focus Punch!Spiritomb>>1023745Because we can take advantage of Spiritomb's Dark typing thanks to Odor Sleuth.
>>1023745It's a gamble, Polu might take out Mace while he's asleep instead.
>>1023745Depends on how odor sleuth works in this setting I guess. Speaking of odor sleuth, it's one of munchlax's mussable moves. We should see about training it later.
>>1023738>>1023741>>1023743>>1023754>>1023763Shouldn't we yell loudly? Since Mace has great hearing?
>>1023745Odor Sleuth was such a clutch metronome. Now Fighting moves are super effective.
