>>1048983My body is so fucking ready.
>>1048983>randomly decide to check /qst/ for the first time today>pokemon quest just posted minutes agoNeat.
>>1048983I wish I wasn't working right now. At least it's from home so I can multitask!
“Bella. What you did was wrong. Do you understand that?”She playfully sticks her tongue out and twirls. She’s not taking you seriously.“You just wait until Laki hears about this.” You pull out the big gun. You can’t help but feel a little bad that this seems to work. She stops messing around and gives you her full attention now.“I’m not mad. I'm just disappointed you aren't being as good as you could be.”Her roses droop. That hit harder than you intended. You try to stay strong, despite every urge in your body wanting to hug the adorable little pokemon.She makes some motions and noises. You’re not like Keira, but you can read the meaning and intent. She’s making excuses and basically saying it was just a joke.“It wasn’t funny. You could have really caused problems. I’m going to put you away until dinner time. I want you to think about what you did.” You take out her pokeball and tap and feel terrible. That last look she gave you is etched into your head.“You’d make a good father.” Val tells you, leaning over and offering a warm smile. You keep your eyes up to hers, despite the soft, wet skin showing outside of her small towel. Considering that you were just accused of spying on her, you really put in the effort to not even steal even a subconscious glance.>Ask about her home life, especially her dad>”Thanks. Seems Laki and I have been getting some practice.”>Go get dressed and set up camp>Ask her advice on what to do with Bella>Something else

>>1049036>Something elseWe did hear some kind of noise, what the fuck was that?I bet the water was just cold or something.
>>1049036>Go get dressed and set up campTotodile anon here missed last thread since I was working, happy I can participate today though! I'm happy getting a Mudkip, ground is my favorite type and mudkip is my second favorite water starter. I still want to get that Murkrow
>>1049036>”Thanks. Seems Laki and I have been getting some practice.
>>1049063Murkrow may never happen he seems to have his own thing going.Totodile is awesome. I wish you all the best.
>>1049036>Ask her advice on what to do with BellaThrow in a comment about not being comfortable as a role model of any sort. It fits our character.>Go get dressed and set up campWhen the above is done.
>>1049036>”Thanks. Seems Laki and I have been getting some practice.”>"What would you say your team's personalities are like?">Go get dressed and set up camp
>>1049070He is so cute it's fine I have so many of them starting a family line from the one I got in coliseum that I transferred over and bred through most of the games. I just like Murkrow one of the few flying types I like besides Starly but I feel a bit biased to Johto mons I like a lot of them despite a chunk of them being bad.
>>1049036I HATE YOU DADDY CRAWLING IN MY SKIN REEEEEEE
>>1049092I'm pretty sure she hates herself at the moment.https://youtu.be/dxZ2KWCi3SE?t=46So more this.
>>1049092>>1049101Fucking teen angst
>>1049092Bella its time for your nap. You want any specific food after it? Your blankie? A hug?
C-can we let her out early and hug her?
>>1049121No. She's a bad girl.
>>1049121Only if we really need a grass type. We have to be firm.
>>1049036>Go get dressed and set up camp
>>1049121Nah, best to let her stew. Backing down now would mess it up

>>1049121Can't back down, got to show her we're in charge.
>>1049145I can only draw on experience with my own family.As far as I'm concerned all Herb needs to do is sit on a couch watching TV all day why Bella hangs out in her room.If we can go a month without looking at or speaking with her, we'll have succeeded.

“Thanks. Laki and I seem to get a lot of practice.”She gets the same look that Hana gets sometimes. “Y-you do, huh?” Her eyes narrow. It’s like she can’t figure out your meaning, you you in general.“Yeah. I mean, with the way Bella sees the two of us.”She puts her hand on her chest and breathes a sigh of relief. “Oh! Of course. This probably sounds silly, but for a second I thought you meant that you two were,” she leans in, “sleeping together.” She laughs again. “How absurd is that? Of course you haven’t slept with Laki.”You think about how you woke up against Laki a few times. “Well, technically that’s not really true, but it’s not as serious as it sounds. It was just a frie-” You’re cut off at the sound of Gobble knocking over your pans. You laugh. “Are you hungry?”He nods.You go find somewhere to get dressed and start doing prep work for dinner while Val heads off back to where she was washing up. You set up a small cooking station and look around figuring out where you’ll sleep.“Herb!” You hear Val yell. It’s not a panicked tone, but it is concerned. You jog over to see what’s going on. Mace, Gobble, Boldore, and the Mudkip follow.You see Val still in her towel, pointing to a small blue pokemon. It’s playfully ripping her clothes to shreds!“Where are your pokemon?” You ask.She points to her fancy purse next to her clothes. The small pokemon rips out a pocket. You gasp for a moment, but all it does is knock around some lipstick and leave the pokeballs alone. It’d honestly be pretty cute if you didn’t like how well her purse matched her outfit.Darn. You don’t have any food on hand anymore.>Send your pokemon over to make it back off. Try to intimidate>Battle it!

>>1049214>Go say hi. Its risky, but its your way.Val is trying to get in Laki's pants, confirmed. Who knows? Hana and Val may end up together by the end of this. Probably not Laki and Vall though, cause we have our onyx obelisk, which Laki knows about.

Rolled 1 (1d2)>Mudkip AND Totodile in the same thread. >Choosing between my favorite Water startersWhy you gotta do me like this Gobble.Rolling for which one i we'll catch.1 for Mudkip 2 for Totodile
>>1049251Man Gold version was the first game I ever bought with my own money. Feraligatr was my first level 100 mon, I really love them.
>>1049251Agreed, that means we can get an even cooler ground type later
>>1049275Feraligatr is pretty cool, it can wreck a lot of shit with Dragon Dance. I still prefer Swampert, though.
>>1049275In heart gold I managed to get a shiney totodile. Never gonna let the little guy go
>>1049266>catching more than 3 pokemon on the first island.I'm not fond of it. I want to slow down. Then again, if it were a rotom or miltank or mawile or a bug, I'd probably be singing a different tune.
>>1049289We have been on the first island for over 21 threads. I think we can get a new Pokemon about now.
>>1049289I really would like a Rotom or a bug type. I had a Rotom names KOOPS in my platinum that my friends absolutely hated battling and in my Y as well. Rotoms are fun and annoying one of the three electric types I like, magnemite line, Rotom and the electabuzz line
>>1049289Normally I'd agree with you, but other Anon is right. It's been a while, and we could certainly do worse than an adorable gator friend.
>>1049289I think we should avoid getting more than 6 Pokémon, but wild mudkip are a once in a lifetime chance that I'm not gonna pass up
>>1049297>>1049302>>1049308Eh, we just have no need for a water type, and gobble will learn high horsepower or mace can learn tm earthquake for ground. I guess I'm not 100% against one joining our team, but I don't want Herb to battle-catch. Never ever.
>>1049214>Go say hi. It’s risky, but it’s your wayAnd invite it for dinner. This should be tastier than Val's clothes.
>>1049327Well we can say hi and make friends to make it stop then let it decide.
It's gonna want to bite something, do we have anything we can sacrifice for it to chew on?
>>1049337Our fishing rod will catch us a water type yet
>>1049327Getting a surfer would be nice so we weren't dependent on Laki's wailmer. It also gives us a Pokémon that can dive with us, which will be needed for exploring the blue hole in the north of the map.Gobble can learn surf, but having a Pokémon invincible to electric attacks would be nice.
>>1049343I was thinking the pan we use for self defense I'd rather not ruin the rod, we still need to help Hana with the Chinchou.
>>1049350Old Rod is a stick and string. We are not gonna fuck up that pan.
>>1049337Nobody's using the macho brace any more.
>>1049355We could try getting it fixed, but those things are made to take punishment. Probably the best bet
>>1049358Well I don't think we've used our winnings from the gym right? We were supposed to use it to buy the explosion TM for Mace so we could do that or repair the brace or even buy a new one.
“Hi.” You cautiously approach. The energetic little pokemon doesn’t seem to pay you any attention. “Hi!” you say again, louder.You look back. Val is pulling on her face, worried about how this is going to turn out. “My name is John, but my friends call me Herb. What’s your name?” You feel foolish after asking that, but you hope the intention is clear.You looks over to you. Eyes wide with excitement and with a big smile. It leaps into the air right at you! It’s mouth is wide open and ready to bite. You need to make a split second decision. After Raichu's attack, you just don't know.>Ah! Duck! (easier, but it’ll land by Val and the others)>Ah! Hit it! Protect yourself (also requires a roll)>Guard your eyes and other vulnerable parts!>Catch it and hug it (Super risky if it wants to bite you)>Something else

>>1049371>Catch it and hug it (Super risky if it wants to bite you)Oh god please don't make us roll for it Gobble, I don't want to imagine what'll happen if we roll a 1.
>>1049371>Something elseArm up to catch its mouth on our arm. If it bites down and draws blood, yell in pain then admonish it for hurting you.That ought to buy us enough time to find something safe for it to do before its attention wanders.
>>1049371>Catch it and hug it (Super risky if it wants to bite you)God I hope this works I'm on the edge of my seat
>>1049387Everyone loses an eye
>>1049371>Catch it and hug it (Super risky if it wants to bite you)Eh, Val will avenge us.
>>1049393Going for an arm this time
>>1049402Maybe it wants to hug and bite.
I'll put down a vote of protest on the hug it move. I'm sure it's playing around, but a lot of animals bite as part of playing. If this is a young Totodile (guessing it is by the seeming ADHD), it'll probably bite down harder than it intends too.
>>1049371>>Catch it and hug it (Super risky if it wants to bite you)I know this is a bad idea but it seems too Herb to not do it.
>>1049408One method of training puppies not to bite is to yelp real loud when they bite you.
>>1049419Well I think after the Raichu attack that won't be a problem.
>>1049411Nope. Its probably trying to bite us anyway. But, we surprise it with the hug, which in it's surprise it return, and becomes one of the family. We are the Gourmet Mob, with Gobble as our chief critic and enforcer, Bella as the femme fatale and sous chef, Mace as the serious and stoic hitman and specialist chef, and Herb as the boss and head chef of the bunch.

Don't fail me now!
>>1049275I took cyndaquil. I still remember those times. One guy at elementary school had access to internet and printed a walkthrough for himself.I loved how you could learn the elemental punches. Thunderpunch on Typhlosion was dope.
See guys! We fed him even though we don't have food!
>>1049466Cyndaquil was my first mon beat the game beat Red I got bored and restarted picked Totodile and fell in love. Funnily enough my best friends favorite game is silver and his preferred mon Cyndaquil
Is this when herbs bad luck kicks in?
I can't into mobile 4chan
>>1049502We only rolled a 65, it won't be THAT bad. Just bad.
>>1049509We'll see. I'm not sure mega bad luck cares.
>>1049472Cyndaquil was my first pokemon and it was pretty much the only pokemon I even used when I was like 4-7 years old.I ended up defeating Red with my level 100 Typhlosion and nothing but a bunch of level 10-20 HM slaves.On impulse I started a new game because I enjoyed the game a lot and wanted to experience the adventure again, but I was struck by a profound depression when I did.Still, fast forward a couple decades and these days I don't really like any starters. I prefer not to use them, even.Feels kind of generic, you know? I want my team to consist of mons I caught myself in the wild, something about receiving a one of a kind mon in a lab felt really sterile to me.
>>1049516I think the dice are tired of making Gobble feel bad and us after the 1s last time. They are probably trying to go for equal ground now.
>>1049477I wish crocodiles and alligators were domesticatedSomething about them are so endearing, outside of them being able to death roll you and drag you to drown
>>1049520Well to be fair the ones didn't do much last time overall.Granted that could have been to an appropriate reaction on our side of things.
>>1049524reptiles are almost completely un-domesticatable. Although you can farm aligators, wouldn't call them tame though
>>1049526The ones are why we are in this whole mess in the first place.
>>1049524https://youtu.be/I7fZZUfvx0s?t=21mYou can "domesticate" pretty much anything. The danger never really goes away completely with more wild and instinctual creatures, but you can get damn close to having one as a pet if you're smart and understand their psychology.
You decide to trust it. After all, one bad experience shouldn’t change your attitude, right?You open your arms wide and close your eyes shut.“Herb!” You hear. You hope you’re right about this.You feel hot breath and teeth on your neck, then a sharp pain. You spin and grab your neck as the pokemon leaps off of you. Your mind reels trying to figure out what happened. Are you okay? Are you dying?You feel on your neck some more. You don’t feel any blood, just a sharp pain. It must have been superficial.The pokemon is facing you with it’s back turned to the others. It rips something to shreds. You look closer and see it’s got the stone your brother gave you. But what it’s shredding is the fabric of the thin rope you used as a necklace. Well, that could have gone a lot worse.Your hand is still on your neck. You look to Val and the pokemon, and they have a look of absolute horror. Before you can say anything, the pokemon is pelted with Rock Blasts. It’s head cocks forward from the impact. Gobble is running up now too, winding up a punch.>Put yourself between Totodile and Gobble (easiest)>Grab Totodile out of the way (harder)>Retrieve Gobble and Mace (hardest)>Let them knock it out.

I've loved pretty much every starter, except the fire pig and monkey. Torchic and Mudkip are my all time favorites though, never got to lvl100 sadly. Game boy died before I ever could do that.

>>1049661Poor Gobble. Little guy's going to be traumatised.
>>1049661Called it, whoever rolls first gets the shit dice.
>>1049661Think Gobble is gonna have to sit Herb down and explain everyone is not your friend?
>>1049661Don't that will just curb everyone into picking safer options, sometimes it's better to go with what we think Herb will do or what he thinks he should do.
>>1049661Also I wouldn't post exact DCs, takes some of the magic out of it.
Sorry I'm late, seems the dice have decided to be mediocre today.
>>1049661Well, just putting a range of what D.C.'s correspond to what indicators (e.g. Very hard = D.C. 70-90) in the op could provide some mystery while helping our judgement. You'll want to include that table, too.
>>1049598>>1049599>>1049600>Failing on a consistent basisHey not every quest can be Ogrequest.
>>1049661I prefer what you did in the above post with general descriptions of difficulty. Keeps us from being entirely in the dark about the relative difficulty of our choices, but also gives some wiggle room in adjusting the result if we're particularly clever/stupid.
>>1049691The dice are still balancing out for the time anon rolled crits 3 times in a row. Also Gobble didn't roll bad, so he didn't Focus Punch us.
>>1049661Ok that's it I'm making a pokemon folderThese lewds are too good to pass up any longer
>>1049689Well Gobble Literally put "Hard" on the option. So that should have given us an indication.
>>1049596That's my wife! Isn't she beautiful?
>>1049701Right, the idea is to give us an idea of what "hard" means. Is it an under 10% chance? 5%?
>>1049691The dice were kind of rigged for dumb shit in ogre quest thoWhatever happened to blorp?
>>1049689>>1049711Eh, I don't know that boiling it down to something that transparent is really necessary. I think the way Gobble does it now works fine.
Isn't this the second time we've had a bad run of rolls in vals presence? If it happens again I'm going to start getting nervous
>>1049716Blorp made another quest based off of Hyperdimension Neptunia with Dwarf Fortress main character. It was meh, and he also left during the switch from /tg to /qst.
>>1049691God ogrequest was great the only Quest where failure was literally impossible and Everything was our friend
>>1049736Eh, all the better when she gossips about us with the other girls later.
“Look out!” You yell as you rush over to try to grab it out of the way.The pokemon is still trying to figure out what hit it as you run. It looks up at you just in time for Gobble’s fist to impact it in the back. You’re too slow.The small pokemon makes a pathetic squeak and goes limp as it’s head and limbs try to follow it’s body as it sails into you. You catch it and feel it go limp. It’s cute little eyes look up and seem to ask “why” before it slips into unconsciousness.Everyone is looking at you as you cradle the poor little guy.“Herb, are you alright?” Valerie runs over and looks at your neck. “I don’t think I’m going to be able to sleep tonight.” she says, breathless. She examines the pokemon. “Oh. He’s out like a light.”Mace and Gobble look relieved. You guess from their perspective, things looked a lot scarier than they actually were. Gobble looks a little guilty. The cute face on this pokemon must melt his heart as much as yours.“What are you going to do now?” The blonde girl asks. You peer over her and see the Mudkip and Boldore watching from the sidelines.>Take it back to camp and let it rest with everyone else>Catch it in a pokeball for now>Leave it.

You feel terrible. “Come on, lil’ guy. Let’s get you some rest and a hot meal.”You take him back to camp. Gobble keeps looking up at him. Once you’re back, you lay him down on a soft bed of leafs and get to work boiling some water. You’re tired, and with a group this big, stew sounds like a good idea.“Quite the following you’ve developed.” Val says. She insisted on helping. She’s not nearly as fast or precise with cutting as Hana. Actually, she’s pretty bad at this in general. More of a hindrance than a help. You guess you can forgive her, though. She’s wearing some of your spare clothes since hers were destroyed. She has plenty of outfits, but they’re all on her yacht.Boldore and Mace are chatting. Mace seems really distracted since you got him back, and you’re starting to think it’s not just from being tired.Valerie ends up misunderstanding your instructions and putting in way more salt than you had asked. Luckily it’s before you tossed everything into the pot. You sigh and get ready to dump out the water and start over.She pets Totodile and Mudkip with her freshly washed hands, then goes back to grab some more food to cut up.>Distract her with another task so she stops “helping.” Spare her feelings>Explain what she did wrong.

Plus, he also couldn't control his own energy, and took off across the fucking world, which is something that anyone who has ever slammed a door on accident or broke something because they used too much strength will understand.
>Explain what she did wrong. Spend time teaching her some cooking basicsThe work never ends. Helping people and pokemon alike, Herb is the man to which all men should aspire.But seriously, teach her some shit. Maybe ask how often she's had the opportunity to cook for others, and stretch that into what she's hoping to get out of her journey. Multitasking is essential for a cook, so she may as well try holding a conversation while she learns!
>>1049913>>Explain what she did wrong. Spend time teaching her some cooking basicsAlways a good idea to know the basics to something when you'll be depending on yourself for the foreseeable future.
“Valerie, wait.” You gently grab her hand before she lays it on the fresh food. You point out that she just finished washing her hands and then touched wild pokemon.She looks embarrassed, but gives a small laugh, too. You spend some time showing her some basics of how to cook. Valerie, while having a lot of good intentions, doesn’t seem to grasp how much work is actually involved in, well, pretty much everything. She dives into each task with a smile, but gives up easily, feeling discouraged at the first road bump.It takes triple the normal amount of time, but you two end up having some fun with it after a while. She even swipes a food covered finger on your nose and laughs. As tired as you are, you do too. She’s pretty charming, once she opens up. You talk a little about your home lives. She’s more interested in hearing about yours than talking about hers. She takes it all in and only really looks surprised when you mention things like how your grandpa used an old wood stove, or when your mom got really mad at your dad for breaking that new washing machine.“You know, Herb. I have absolutely no idea what to make of you.” Valerie says, scooping up some stew. She turns around offers you a sip from the ladle. “What do you think about me? Absolute honesty. Don’t hold anything back.”You take a sip. It's edible. Not great, but edible. It reminds you of what your little brother accomplished after that two week period he wanted to be a cook like you.Dad warned you about these questions from a girl.>She’s pretty, even in your clothes>She’s a poor cook, but could be great with practice>She’s a nice friend>She’s a bit spoiled and disconnected, but she’s trying.

>>1050113I'll back it.
>>1050105>Something elseIt's really nice not being the only foriegner. We haven't spent a whole lot of time together, but I feel like we're in the same boat in a lot of ways.

>>1050105>She’s a nice friendSorry Val, but I'm afraid it's the friendzone for you, at least for now.
>>1050183She wants honest with no sugar coating.
>>1050105>She’s a bit spoiled and disconnected, but she’s trying.She's even succeeding in many ways, leading into>She’s a nice friendBring up her consideration of Hana's recharging, or her simple willingness to help you cook here. You never pushed her for that, after all. She just did it, and that speaks volumes about where her priorities lie when she's dealing with people - help where you can.We don't know her whole story, though. I'm sure she could nuance our view of her if she spoke with us more. She avoids talking about herself in general, and she needs to learn to get over that. She may have grown up differently from others due to her status, but everyone has something like that separating them from others.When she learns how to talk comfortably about her own life without fear of alienating people, then she'll know she's done it. It'll be hit-and-miss in the meantime, though, so if she wants to unload when the small slips start to pile up then we'll be available. Just don't expect anything too spectacular out of us, because we're not any more special than she is.
>>1050183I really feel the spoiled part of that one option is a bit much, she never acts spoiled to any degree.
>>1050192I can see how that makes sense, up until the part where we say we're not sure if she can stick it out. I'd rather say it could be challenging, but Keira and Hana have had isolated lives, and they're managing to connect. Why couldn't she?
>>1050204Agreed. Let's do this.
>>1050204Right on the money. (Pun intended.)
>>1050204Something like this.
>>1050204This guy gets it
>>1050204I'd support this too assuming I'm not too late.Or at the least attempt to veto that long option, cause that just seems way too rude in my opinion for Herb to just drop on someone.
I did a thing
>>1050302>RIDERS OF ROHAN
>>1050302Nice work, anon.
>>1050204You waited way to long to post though. >>1050302Very cute!
Hey all and Gobble finally home from workSo, I've missed quite a few developments
>>1050302Awesome work DrawfriendHope to see more throughout our journey
>>1050331I hadn't touched a pen in months. Happy to have gotten inspiration.
>>1050318Writing takes me a while, I'm afraid. I'm pretty sure I also got a late start, but idk.I just want to help give Val some self-confidence. We haven't spent as much time with her as some others, and I want to try and make up for that even if she isn't best girl.
>>1050339I know the feeling, sometimes its rough to shake off the dust but your work is pretty solid. If you need more practice you could always do some of the other moments from earlier this journey
>>1050363Huh. I might. Thanks for the kind words random internet bro!
“You’re pretty.” You tell her as you step forward and take another taste test from the ladle.“Herb.” She sounds a bit surprised. You are standing pretty close. Her lack of bra becomes obvious as her chest moves up and down.“I think you’re really disconnected from everyone else, though. Maybe even spoiled. I don’t know if that’s the right word.” Her eyebrows go up in surprise, but she restrains herself from saying anything. “But you’re trying. You’ve been really considerate about Hana, and putting yourself out there learning to cook. You genuinely want to help, and that says a lot about you. I don’t know a lot about you and I could be wrong. I’m just going off what I’ve seen so far. I get that you’ve grown up a bit differently than everyone else, and I think you’re a little overly conscious of that. You let it be something bigger than it is. When you learn to talk comfortably with people without worrying about weirding them out, you’ll do great. It just might be a lot of effort getting from here to there, but a lot of mistakes on the way. If that happens, I’m here for you to listen. But I don’t really know where I am on my own journey, so don’t expect me to be all that great about it either, okay?”You really went off on a thing there. The silence is killing you.“Nobody’s ever talked to me like that before.” She says, flatly. “Thank you.” After a few blinks, her blank eyes get a little bit of life into them. “Thank you. I mean it.” She gives you a hug. It starts out a little awkward. she holds you tight and you flinch when she touches where you got zapped before. “Sorry! I uhh, guess I need to practice that, too.”You both laugh. You’re not a big initiator of physical contact, either. You get it.You take out Belladonna. “It’s dinner time.” You offer her some food. She warily takes it and starts eating, but keeps an eye on you. You think she’s trying to figure out what your feelings are towards her right now.Totodile is up and moving around, but still very much far from a threat. He makes himself right at home when you offer some food.Gobble is slobbering at this point and downs his stew too fast, burning his tongue and running around. As odd as it sounds, you’re almost glad, because it takes his mind off of feeling guilty about Totodile. It’s not serious.Mace and Boldore eat together. After Boldore gets a fill, he gives you a casual salute and heads off into the woods.“Is he going to be okay?” You ask Mace.Mace nods, watching his friend leave. He really does seem to have a lot on his mind.Bella makes a noise as she finishes her meal. She’s making a play for your attention.>Okay. Play with Bella for a bit.>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip>Wait, go talk to Boldore>Figure things out in the morning. You’re bushed>Something else
>>1050468>>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip>Split leftovers if there are any between Mudkip, Gobble and Boldore.
>>1050468>>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip
>>1050468>Tend to Totodile and MudkipThen talk to Bella. Shouldn't leave her stewing much longer, but we need to make sure the lesson sunk in.
>>1050468>Give Bella a hug, then go and tend to Mudkip and Totodile.
>>1050468>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip
>>1050468>Wait, go talk to Boldoreafterwards>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip
>>1050468>Something elseAsk Bella if she's learned anything. Maybe ask why she wanted to get Val upset with us.
>>1050468>Wait, go talk to Boldore>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip
>>1050468>Okay. Play with Bella for a bit.
>>1050468>Tend to Totodile and Mudkip>Give Bella some attention after
>>1050468>Tend to Totodile and MudkipTake Bella along on our shoulder
>>1050468>Tend to Totodile and MudkipWe should let Bella wait a little bit more I think.
>>1050468>Tell Bella one moment as you tend to business >Tend to Totodile, Mudkip, & Gobble splitting the leftovers>Wave and wish Boldore well and goodbye>Ask Mace if he's alright>Okay. Play with Bella for a bit.
>Tend to Totodile and MudkipLet Bella know we'll play with her later, though. We also want to see if she's been properly mollified.
>>1050468Also, this was a really great moment with Val. I'm really proud of Gobble and you anons for striking such a nice mix of frank and understanding. I'm looking forwards to more Val now, and Herb's really begun to feel like he's coming into his own. Really holding out for a doubles contest now.
>>1050594Couldn't agree more. This was really good.
You go to Totodile and Mudkip. On your way over, you stop to give Bella a quick hug and a pat on the head.She looks incredibly relieved. There’s still some unfinished business there, but just knowing where she stands seems to lift a lot off of her shoulders.You split the leftovers between these two and Gobble. Gobble is eager to down his quickly.Mudkip is more restrained. It’s a bit shy, but hungry, too. It gives you a happy smile from the food. You guess it sees the wait as worth it. Once it’s done, it rubs its head against your leg, the Valerie’s. It’s a friendly pokemon, but seems to need a lot of encouragement to get out of it’s shell. You can understand that.Totodile, seemingly having forgotten the events of the day, quickly eats his. With some practice, he might give Gobble a run for his money. He leaps over and shreds the remain rags of Val’s clothes. He burps her tiny pink pnaties up and you pretend not to notice.Wait. Those, the thin rope, the pocket lining of her purse... “It’s the fabric!”Val looks over to you. The Mudkip in her hands licks her face. “What?”“Everything Totodile tore to shreds, it’s made of the same stuff.”Totodile goes back to ripping up her panties and looks up. He makes a playful growl noise. You toss him a sock from your bag made of out the same fabric. He absolutely destroys it before it lands.“I think you’re onto something.” Valerie says. “Maybe he has an owner.” She taps him with a pokeball.Boop. Boop. Boop. Click!“Oh!” She covers her mouth. “I didn’t expect that to work.”You both look at each other. The story behind this little guy starts to become clear. He used to have an owner, but now he doesn’t.“I.. oops I didn't mean to- Did you want...” She holds the ball out to you.>Yeah. You’ll take him>Actually, you were thinking you might ask Mudkip to join you>Don’t take either>Something else
>>1050723>Yeah. You’ll take him>Ask if she lieks Mudkips
>>1050723>>Yeah. You’ll take him
>>1050723>>Don’t take eitherI'm not feeling it. But Val should know that she could release Toto if she wants.
>>1050723Seconding>>1050738I like both equally, so I decided to go with the first person who posted.
>>1050723>Yeah. You’ll take him>Ask her what she thinks of Mudkip
>>1050723>Yeah. You’ll take him
>>1050723>>1050738I support this.
>>1050723>Yeah. You’ll take him>Ask if she wants to partner up with Mudkip>tiny pink pnatiesButt please Gobble.
>>1050723>>1050738May as well back this. The Mudkip seem to liek her, after all.
>>1050723>Yeah. You’ll take himThat's she wants him. Though it also seems like she has a fan with Mudkip Hmmm maybe ask Totodile?
>>1050810I meant that she can have Totodile since she caught him. She needs to be more confident in herself
>>1050723>>Actually, you were thinking you might ask Mudkip to join youShe caught him. He's her responsibility now.
>>1050723>>1050798Well, if we're going to to spot check for butts...>against your leg, the Valerie's*then>to get out of it's shell*its>playful growl noiseshould probably be *growling
>>1050798>>1050840[Oh boy. Lots of butts incoming. Let me know if there are any repeats.]
>>1050738>Yeah. You’ll take him>Ask if she likes Mudkip.I'm good either way here.Totodile and Val is a hilarious mental image, but her and Mudkip fit better.
>>1050862You post too many butts to track for repeats, Gobble. It comes with running a couple hundred threads.
>>1050891she looks much better with her hair down instead of in those weird stringy.. whatever the hells.
>>1050907Still one of my all time favorite girls.
>>1050907Red's reaction is accurate and appropriate.
>>1050891I hated Plumeria when she was revealed, but after seeing her in game I actually really like her. That hair-down version is really great, though.>>1050907Who is that?
>>1050907That's a mighty fine butt there.
>>1050950Green from the Adventures manga.
>>1050957Is the Adventures manga any good?
>>1050723>Actually, you were thinking you might ask Mudkip to join you
>>1050985Yeah I had fun reading it. I need to pick it back up left off around diamond and pearl
>>1050985What >>1051024 said.It's good. Puts the anime to shame.
“Yeah, I’ll take him.” Assuming he’s okay with that. You lift the pokeball from her hands. You have a feeling about it, despite not knowing him for very long. Your eyes turn to the Mudkip nestling on her lap. “Looks like you have a new friend too.”She looks down at the little water pokemon. It’s hidden it’s face in her lap and looks like it’s fallen asleep. “Cute.” She comments.“So, you like Mudkips?”She scratches it. It sleepily curls into a ball. “I do now. I think we might have a lot in common, too.” She smiles. You couldn't agree more.You take out Totodile. It looks up at you with it’s mouth hanging open.“Hey. Look. I know we don’t know each other that well, but I think we might get along. Do you want to join me and my friends?”It looks past you to Bella, Gobble, and Mace. Mace pretends not to be listening. Belladonna is openly watching and looking a little jealous at the attention he’s getting. Gobble is satisfied and burps.He looks at your neck, then shrinks a little. When you lift your hand to touch your neck, he flinches.“This? Well, you shouldn’t bite people, but we’ll work on that together, okay?”He suspiciously assesses you, but then nods. He wants to join the team!“Welcome aboard!” You motion over to Mace. “Hey, Mace. You haven’t really had a chance to say hi yet, right? Come on over.”Mace pretends like you’ve just gotten his attention, and he totally didn’t even notice what was happening. He heads on over. Totodile playfully bites him and gets his jaws stuck. Mace looks less than impressed, but not seriously upset.You go back to Bella. She makes a motion to lift her up.>Just play. She gets it>Ask why she did that. Let’s have a talk>Let’s do some training. That’s fun, right?>Something else

>Play and lectureWe know she did it because she thought it would be funny.

It's better if she doesn't set people up against each other since she isn't the one who gets to patch things up later.
>>1051121>Let’s do some training. That’s fun, right?It's been a while since we trained and now we have a new mon to coordinate with, we should talk to Bella afterwards though.

“Come on.” You pat your lap. “Take a seat.” You remember how your dad did this once.Bella rolls her eyes, but she walks over and sits.“Hey now.” You warn. She sits up straight and listens. “Bella, I want to talk about what you did before.”She makes a pleading noise and pulls at your shirt.“It’s okay, I’m not still upset. But I want to know, why did you do it?”She looks away and pokes her flowers together.“Bella.”Bella sighs and starts pantomiming. You really wish you could understand pokemon the way Keira does. From what you can gather, she thought it would be funny, she thought you liked pranks because Keira is a big fan of them, and she thought you and Valerie would end up-“Belladonna!” You gasp. “Where did you learn such things?”She continues making obscenely lewd gestures.“Okay! Okay! I get it!” You make her stop. “But you need to understand that some pranks can really hurt relationships.”You have a bit of a talk with her about what is and isn’t appropriate. She seems to mostly get it. Mostly. Towards the end, you show her a prank that’s fine by playing it on her. It’s the best prank in the world. “I have your nose!”She desperately leaps for your hand to get it back. It takes her a few seconds before she realizes she doesn’t have a nose.You laugh and play together. It goes on until things start getting really dark. Valerie invites you into her giant tent to sleep.The next morning goes by like a blur. Not because it’s fast, but because you’re sore and tired. You help pack up, make a quick breakfast, and head back to the temple. You’re thinking about what sort of nickname to give Totodile as you watch him hop around in front and chomp random branches and other objects.“I meant what I said before, Herb. You’d really make a good dad. And thanks for your honesty before. I guess we both have a lot of work to get ourselves out there, don’t we?”You look at the blonde girl. She’s wearing your clothes, her hair is all disheveled because you both wanted to get back early in the morning. Oddly enough, she looks cuter than ever.You’re almost there, you probably won’t get another chance to talk privately for awhile.>Thanks!>Let's both vow to do something outgoing.>Ask if she has a boy she likes.>Something else

>>1051172I'm not sure she was just doing to for fun. Kids will always pull the "I was just joking" card a lot when they get caught. And we know Bella wanted to sabotage our relationship with the competition to help Laki

>>1051560Bella is correct. OTP indeed.
“Thanks!” You’re feeling a lot closer to her than you did before. “You know what I was thinking? Both of us should do something outgoing.”“I’m quite feeling like I’m doing something a tad outgoing right now.” She gestures to her outfit. Well, your outfit. “No. I mean, we should make pact. Hold each other accountable. Like a buddy system for being less shy.”She perks up. “Oh. Oh I like that idea.” She claps her hands together. “We can come up with something for the other person to do!”Oh, that’s interesting. If it were someone like Laki or Jane, you’d be too paranoid to do something like this, but Valerie is different. “Okay. Let’s do it.”You both walk and think about a challenge to give to the other. A few ideas come to mind, but you’re not able to settle on anything. “Okay, how about this. We’ll talk tonight with a challenge for the other person. I’ll call you.”“Sounds good.”Wow. You never knew you two would hit it off like this. Heck, with everyone. You’ve never really been the most popular or charismatic person, but you’ve been putting yourself out there ever since the start of your journey, and you’re making progress.“Bro!” You see Polu run towards you. “Bro! Val gal!”“Val gal?” She raises an eyebrow.He punches your arm. Ow. “Dude. You look like you had an adventure. And Val...you’re...dressed in his clothes.”You explain about the Totodile. As you do, the others arrive to greet you to see why Polu is laughing so hard.Val gets more and more embarrassed as they each recite it. You feel a little bad. But she likes it better than the other assumption.>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battle>Introduce Totodile to change the subject>Make a short speech to everyone before you all leave>Something else
>>1051626>Introduce Totodile to change the subjectWeren't we going to have Bella talk to Laki about the prank thing as well or?
>>1051626>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battle>Introduce Totodile to change the subjectSo we have 2 big eaters, 1 cutey with attitude and 1 seen some shit starter that wants to be a ninja?
>>1051626>>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battle
>>1051626>>Introduce Totodile to change the subjecthi Gobble
>>1051626>>Something elseAsk what Laki gave Polu, since technically he won when we quit.
>>1051626>Introduce Totodile to change the subject>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battle
>>1051626>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battle>Introduce Totodile to change the subject>Ask what Polu won
>>1051626>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battleIf Mace is feeling up to it of course>Introduce Totodile to change the subjectTell him 'no bites'Also, Val should introduce Mudkip >Make a short speech to everyone before you all leaveSave for the end of the battle if we have one
>>1051626>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battle>Introduce Totodile to change the subject
>>1051626>Introduce Totodile to change the subject>Tell Polu you and Mace will be happy to settle that battleThough be ready to call back Totodile if it looks like he's going to shred anything.
>>1051626>Introduce Totodile to change the subject
>>1051560>>1051741[Love these, by the way]
>>1051756Glad you do
>>1051626>Introduce Totodile to change the subjectIf he brings up the battle, tell him we concede. We both put up a good fight, but ultimately we weren't going to push hard enough win at the end - it would have cost us too much.It doesn't look like I'll be awake to swap challenges with Val. Please count the Hana idea as one of the options (and put my vote to it)!Some other ideas since I won't be up for it:>A date with LakiTry to fit her for cute clothes and do girly things in general. It''s not a side of her that sees the light of day often, so both Val and Laki should benefit from it.>Spend a couple nights at someone's housePretty self explanatory. I doubt Val has done it without other people watching over her, though. >Alternate: Spend a night with everyone in the group.Could be at someone's home, could be out in the field, could be while winding down from some adventure. Spend those nights getting to know those people better, and share at least one personal thing each time Challenge starts from the day we issue it. Yes, this means she has to spend another night with us. We like her, after all, and would like to see her more often.Night, Gobble! Night, anons!
>>1051763Funny that picture says that, Gobble has been hinting that Mace is actually really, really old
>>1051774Yeah of course you're totally for sending Laki on a date with Val. How about we hook your waifu up with Polu?
>>1051793is he an expert on carbon dating?no, he's a food expert, nothing else
>>1051806Please. Gobble is a Pokemon of a plethora of talents. While he may seem lazy, thats merely because of his ovewhelming intellect making regular life seem boring.He had already figured out carbon dating the day before we caught him.
“Hey everyone. We made some new friends!” You take out Totodile. Valerie sees what you’re doing and sends out Mudkip. You didn’t see when she officially caught it, but you slept pretty hard.“Say hi!” She encourages her Water pokemon. It hides behind her leg and only peaks around. But it’s adorable. Even Jane has a soft look on her face. She quickly changes it when you see her see it, though.Totodile has the opposite problem. Instead of being too shy, he runs around, and sometimes on top of, everybody. It reminds you a bit of Keira. He sniffs up Hana’s leg, looks confused, and starts nosing towards her crotch. He playfully growls.“Alright!” You quickly put him away. “Totodile and Mudkip!”You all chat for awhile and everyone gathers up their stuff, splitting up a little bit, coming back together, and really dragging their feet. When you’re alone for a moment, the monk who messed up your pokedex comes out and gives you the TM. “I worked all night. I didn’t get a chance to test it, but that’s as clean is it can get.”You don’t see any reason to doubt him. You thank him for going to the effort. You didn’t really mean to cost him a whole night. He insists it’s fine, saying there’s a proverb about hard work being the path to forgiveness. He vanishes before you can say more.Polu comes back and slaps you on the back. “So, you’ve been getting around with the girls, huh?”You hold out and stutter. “N-nothing happened! We’re just friends.”“Yeah huh. You know we can talk about this stuff, right bro? No need to be shy.” He teases.You take it in stride. While you’re talking, you offer to settle your battle with him.“Alright bro, but how about the next time we meet? Aron and Mace can 1v1. Until then, I’m considering this a tie.”>Sounds good!>No way. You’ve got a bandanna. Let’s battle!>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thought. You’ll train for next time>Something else
>>1051890He is a munchlax with a sense of self control
>>1051900>>Sounds good!It was really close if I recall
>>1051900>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thought. You’ll train for next timeSmile to show we're not bothered by it.
>>1051900>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thought. You’ll train for next timeAlso>He sniffs up Hana’s leg, looks confused, and starts nosing towards her crotch. He playfully growls.Our clothing-eating Totodile is quite the character.
>>1051900>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thought. You’ll train for next time
>>1051934If we train him correctly he can let us know when each girl is ovulating and tear up all their clothes at that time so we can do our thing
>>1051900>Sounds good!Grin and give a good shake on it, Polu best bro
>>1051900>Its a lossGet Laki pawned off on him.
>>1051960Oh shit, I forgot about that. Disregard >>1051934
>>1051900>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thought.
>>1051900>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thought. He won fair and square
>>1051904You seem to think I assumed Gobble to be a hyperactive, constantly eating mass of flesh driven by his base instincts and occasional sexual drive. You thought wrong.I was the first person to suggest Gobble to be the main food critic of our group, solely because I saw the potential for great and glorious things in him.
>>1051994I never suggested such a thingI was merely providing evidence for you're statement
Now that we have Allan E. Gator, we should be able to make use of that nevermeltice soon.
>>1052014Unless it was actually an ice stone
>>1051960>>1051982>>1051989>>1052006Literally blatant fucking samefagging.
>>1052012The first guy definitely is, he made three votes with the same fucking ID like a retard, and those are his only three posts this thread. Second guy might be legit, or might just be him figuring out how to change IDs.
>>1052026I think it is. Look at the timing between the 3rd and 4th vote. Almost too soon to be a coincidence.
>>1052018I mean maybe. Oh, also, since gobble and toto both get some dark moves, we shouldn't worry about getting a ghost or dark type. All we need is a fairy, maybe ground. But gobble and mace can get ground moves.We should fire up that tm, see what it is.
>>1052018>>1052039It's in the info pastebin as Never Melt Ice unless Herb is misidentifying it too.
>>1052026No I just think its rude to steal his win
>>1052039On second thought, Toto's ice options will hit dragon, and superpower will hit dark, and that only leaves fighting. So we just need to cover fighting now.So fairy or flying or psychic is what we need.Come on Solosis!
>>1052053Dude. You literally made 3 posts with the same id. All of them had different words. On top of that, you did 2 of them right next to each other.I understand you don't want to take his win, but you lost all credibility when you posted 3 times on the same id, potentially 4.
>>1052053>"Steal" his win when he's the one refusing to consider it that>Giving that attempt at justification after admitting you want to "get Laki pawned off" onto him>Thinking any reason changes the incredibly blatant samefag attempt into not being a samefag attemptYou need to be 18 or older to use this site legally.
>>1051900>It’s a loss, but you appreciate the thoughtHate to go along with a samefag, but I kind of agree that he won.
>>1052072>>1052073No he's right. And laki is a bad influence
You do something you feel shy about. But after your talk with Valerie, and Hana before that you feel like you should push yourself. You grab his hand. It’s not a normal handshake, it’s a corny, manly grasp. “Sounds good, bro.”His eyes sparkle. He forcibly grasps it back. “Your on, you son of a bitch!” You jerk forward from his pull.You’re at a bit of a loss. That was more intense than you expected.“Too much?” He gives you a quick bro hug instead. “Alright, but we’re on next time. No slacking on that training.” And with that, he lets you go, lefts his bag, kicks up his surfboard and catches it, and whistles as he walks off.That’s so cool.“That’s so corny.” Laki puts an arm around your neck. “But who am I to judge your lameness?”Keira comes out too, finishing up some sort of formal bow She comes running over.Hana and Val come over too. Hana fidgets for a moment, then gives Laki a hug. She formally bows to Keira. Keira though, gives her a hug. Hana avoids touching her skin, though.Hana gives you a very quick hug, too. “Fishing again, next time we meet up, okay?”“Sure.”She smiles and runs off. Val goes with her.That leaves Jane. She watches you, seeing what you’ll do.>Wave, then leave. Nice and simple>Shake her hand, like a colleague>Hug her, like a friend>Something else
>>1052076Thank you. They're probably same fagging anyway. That's why theyre mad.

>>1052100>Shake her hand, like a colleague>Hug her, like a friendYeah, I'll agree with stealth hug.
>>1052100>Hug her, like a friendHerb probably needs one
>>1052100>Hug her, like a friend.She's gonna be like one of those chocolates with the hard shells. Kind of tough on the outside, but actually pretty sweet once you get past it.
>>1052159He has several
>>1052100>Hug her, like a frien
>>1052172I think he meant Herb needs a hug anon, not needs another friend.
>>1052181We can all see it man. Calm your tits.
>>1052139Hey man, no reward without risk.Also, I'm kind of glad we got toto, even if I wasn't keen on him at first. Totodile used to be my favourite pokemon, before I discovered bugs. It'll be nice to get to know toto again. Shadow, metal, and dragon claws will be nice too.>>1052145Damn straight.Also also, I think leading sentences with "Also," might be an identifying verbal tick for me.

>>1052353Wow. That's 100% accurate to my mental picture of Jane. good job anon the resemblance is striking!
You walk up with all the confidence you can muster. To be honest, it’s not all that much because your really good looking clothes got messed up and you feel like an uncoordinated mess, but she doesn’t need to know that.You reach out to shake her hand. “Jane.”She hesitates. But only for a second. John.” Her voice is flat, but there’s this slightly respectful tone behind it, somewhere.On the third shake, you pull her in for a hug. Jane immediately tenses up and tries to do something with your arm, but she’s so caught off guard at the prospect of a hug that you manage to land it without her being able to turn it into a grab. You hold it for a few seconds, then let go and leave. You only see her face for a second, but it’s total surprise, and a little red.You go catch up with Keira and Laki. Keira is wide eye’d and optimistic as you approach the beach. Laki is laughing hysterically at you hugging Jane, pessimistically congratulating you and doing the something she’s sure will get under that bitches skin.“She’s not that bad.” You tell Laki.Laki gives you a funny look, but decides not to press it. “So, neither of you managed to win that battle, huh? Too bad.” She leans in close. Really close. Her hand works it’s way down from your chest to just inside your waistline. “I think you would have really liked your reward.”You freeze up and she laughs. “You’re too easy, Soft Hands. Now come on, get ready.” She throws out her pokeball.You look back to the island. This is it. The next step in your pokemon journey. A life-changing experience where you figure out who you are. What you want to do. Why you want to do it. Not just in a superficial sense, but in a deep, emotional and spiritual sense, too. You’re going to learn a lot about pokemon, about yourself, about the region, and about the way the world works.You can’t wait! Mostly![That’s it for tonight. Next thread should be Tuesday ideally. Think up names for Totodile. Next time we’ll vote on that, reveal the TM, see the next island and all sorts of shenanigans!]
>>1052330And on that note, Im going to bed.Goodnight, sweet anons. Don't let the stupidity of Tumblr and samefags fuck you over.
>>1052374Thanks for running Gobble.
>>1052374>it’s way down from your chest to just inside your waistline. “I think you would have really liked your reward.”Must. Beat. Polu.
>>1052374Thanks for running gobble, I loved every second
>>1052374Woooooooooooooo, great run Gobble! Loved getting to know Val a bit better. She's a cutie!
>>1052356Meh, I just like encouraging sexual deviancy.>>1052374Thanks for running Gobble! Will we be deciding which island to go to next time, or did we decide earlier and I forgot? I want to go to Eelilee to show the elders our bone.
>>1052374Thanks for running, Gobble! Was an amusing thread. Looking forward to Totodile shenanigans also- glad we caught that mon.Say, if emailing you was a matter of life and death, how often do you check that?
>>1052378>>1052383>>1052393[Thanks! Sleep tight, everyone!]
>>1052374>So, neither of you managed to win that battle, huh? Too bad.” She leans in close. Really close. Her hand works it’s way down from your chest to just inside your waistline. “I think you would have really liked your reward.”Aw man, we've gotta get another Laki pov lewdbin Good night Gobble, thanks for another great thread.Anyone else see Herb doing the Bilbo 'I'm going on an adventure!' run as they leave the island?
>>1052404As amusing as that would be, Laki and Keira wouldn't leave him behind like that, so maybe something a bit similar.
>>1052388Oh, we will anon. We will
>>1052374I just realized we get to ride a wailmer now, sweet
>>1052414Actually envisioned Herb doing it with Laki making an 'oh brother' head shake and Keira hiding a chuckle
>>1052364I think I'll check the descriptions for the rest of the characters and do simpleton portraits for them>>1052374Looking forward to it, thanks for running!
>>1052401[Oh crap. Did I miss one? I'm really bad about checking that email. I'll set it up on my phone so I get notices]>>1052400[Eelilee was decided before. Getting from one island to the other isn't as big a deal as travelling between towns in the last quest, though. So going back and forth won't be a huge time sink in case people want to go back for whatever reason.]>>1052398>>1052404>>1052430[Thanks! Next lewdbin should be a Hana POV. I might also do a Val POV too, because I think I can tie them loosely together.]
>>1052439Aw yea all dat lewd. Can't wait
>>1052439>going back and forth won't be a huge time sinkThat's good I think. I'm pretty excited to take Keira to Kontote with Polu. It'll be nice to have them gain some understanding of each other.What was Jane trying to do with our arm? Judo-flip us?Also, we need to learn more about Herb's religious background. And hell, his surname.I wonder when we'll tell Laki that Jane was the president of her fan club.
>>1052374Thanks for running, Gobble. I'm really glad we finally got to know Valerie better, because now I really like her.But even more than that, Herb is the sweetest kid. He's easily the most endearing member of the cast, and every time he has a cute, awkward moment with one of the girls makes me happy.
>>1052503We need cute Herb fanart. I've had enough butts. I want Herb cutes.
>>1052526Herb being awkward around Valerie while she's wearing his clothes, and they're a little too big on her. Someone make it happen.
>>1052526I think we're waiting on a more detailed description. All we have so far is stylish as fugg, big blue eyes, blond, and totally-not-Spark.
>>1052574>>1052578Those help, thanks.
I suppose this is how Jane sees herb or at least did at first (we seem to be making some progress towards actually being a friend, once we've got that done we can work on making her actually people)
>>1052705We should get shades like that. Or put on our goggles. Any sort of eye protection really. You know how gobble gets.
>>1052723I just want Herb to get a cute apron for cooking. Also any ideas for totodile's name?
Keira best girl
>>1052873Toto, Tony Chomps, Allan E. Gater, Abiteth (meaning to bite), Gummy.
>>1052873Jawnson, Jaws, Sobek, Dundee,
>>1052873This is suitable.
>>1052873I really want Val to play dress-up with Herb now.
>>1052894>>1052934I feel like we could get Herb into one of these.>>1052929>>1052928>>1052922>>1052917>>1052903These, though, would need some time for Herb to develop his confidence some first.
for real though, how about one of these
WAIT STOP THE APRON PRESSES WE NEED TO GO OLD SCHOOLIf Brock could rock it, so can Herb
>>1052894>>1052903>>1052907Not bad for names, I sorta like the cooking/eating theme. Some names that come to mind, Dash, Chomper, Dill, Julienne, Nosh, Chewy, and things of that sort. Also a couple pretty good aprons in there.Like>>1052953>>1052951>>1052903>>1052894>>1052934
>>1052894I like Tony Chomps.>>1052934So do I, anon. So do I.
>>1052439>Hana and\or Val lewd binHow about Val's outgoing thing being kissing Hana and things escalating from there?
Screw all the other names, let's just go Chomper.Sure, the Land Before Time sequels were unnecessary, but that adorable little bastard was the best.Plus the second one is the only good sequel.
>>1052953This is the only real option for an apron
Could someone please explain how come Hana hugged Laki? And why'd Keira hug Hana?
>>1053375Friendship and they are the people they want to get to know more iirc
>>1052953There can be no other optionAs for Totodiles, I always name mine Duke.
WHEN ARE WE GETTING AN ENEMY TEAM ADMIN ROUTE
>>1053851NOT UNTIL WE MEET POLU'S SISTER ON KONTOTE.
>>1053851When she realizes the mainlander has such a good heart that he saved her vicious lingerie shredding totodile.
>>1053375Because Hana and Valerie are going their separate ways for now. They're taking Valerie's ship because Hana needs to recharge her arms/legs.We're taking Laki's walmer. I'm sure we'll see each other again.
>>1053879Good storylineI'm into it
So any ideas how we should train Mace for his big match? I think that if there's one special thing we should try to do, it's teach him Gravity. I wouldn't be surprised if Aron has evolved into Aggron by then, and Gravity will help give Mace a leg up against bigger opponents. It'll also help with flying opponents and landing moves like stone edge later on. I bet we could combine it with sandstorm to cool effect, too.Regardless, I want to meditate with Mace.
>>1053936Whoops I meant Lairon.
>>1053936Only issue I see for that is that Lairon is a late evo, 33 iirc
>>105421431. I think that's 6 levels away for Aron max, based on the moves used.
>>1054214>>1054218Given that we likely won't see him for awhile, Lairon is pretty likely.
>>1054226So, given that Lauren is so heavy, and we have some time, do you think we should go for gravity, or a different training regiment.
>>1054323We NEED to focus on an outlet for that energy. I suggest going for attempting to dodge mostly and speed secondarily.
>>1054338Well, with luck our tm might be able to help with that.
So on our next training day, we should ask mace what's on his mind, and practice energy control.Bella should probably see what moves her new body is capable of. Try out poison sting, leech seed, magical leaf, grass whistle, giga drain, and, if that's all easy, toxic spikes.Gobble, we should try and teach screech, recycle, and body slam. If those are easy, we can try stockpile. We should also probably ask what he thinks about evolution. I kind of want to ask him to hold off, since he has missable moves and I'm not sure we can manage feeding a snorlax quite yet.Toto needs evaluation- we should find out what moves he knows and what his ability is. He might just surprise us. I wonder what nature he is too.
>>1054462Actually, come to think of it, if gobble learns recycle then feeding him might become a whole heck of a lot easier as a snorlax. Just cook him a turkey or whatever and he can keep summoning more every time he eats one.
>>1054468We should also take a swing at metronome training for gobble too, if we're lucky he might just be able to nab some new moves for free.
Hey Gobble, what day did Herb arrive on Loanah? I want to try keeping track of how long certain things have been going on, like Bella's age. Also, does your setting use the normal Jan-Dec calendar, or are there, like, 18 different type associated months lasting 3 weeks each totaling 378 day long years?
So it's cotton that toto likes, right? I can't think of anything else that would fit, not that I know much.
>>1056036or silk, considering our necklace was the same material. Silk is surprisingly good for cordage, it's very strong for it's weight, but is expensive. With spider pokemon and other bugs, silk is probably pretty cheap in this world
>>1056036isn't that super crop...vispum(?) used in textiles?plot hook time.
>>1056142Most likely.>>1056171Possible, but I feel like Herb's sock is unlikely to be made of it if it were from the mainland and purchased a while ago.>>1056155Cheeky. Very cheeky.
>>1056285Oh, and I'm betting Toto will evolve shortly. They usually do so at level 18, so even if he's fairly low level, it shouldn't take long.I wonder what happened with his trainer. Was Toto abandoned? Lost? Escaped? Released?
>>1056321Pretty sure released. I think if he was still registered the Pokeball should have failed (going by Val's surprise over actually catching him).
>>1056370That's a good point, if he was escaped I don't think he should have been catchable. I still wonder what sort of terms they separated on.It could also have been something really specific, like a totodile breeder's fence broke.I'll admit, im not 100% sold on totodile. We just... didn't need a water type at all. I'll see how I feel later though.
>>1056458>I'll admit, im not 100% sold on totodile. We just... didn't need a water type at all.We're in goddamn tropical islands. That calls for cozy deep-sea diving, and that's completely indisputable.
>>1056472that's why I wanted the mudkipwhy did people prefer toto to mudkip? It has less STAB moves and doesn't have a mega
>>1056493eh, I'm neutral when it comes to water starters (my favorite water type is Relicanth) at least toto can learn dragon dance and maybe teach it to gobble since he likes dancing.
>>1056493It's a fucking alligator.
>>1056493I didn't want either, and while normally I'd pick Mudkip, I saw that Val wanted it, so if I hadn't picked neither, I would have picked toto.>>1056472That makes sense, and I do hope Feraligatr can do cross-island swimming. I'd just rather have a duel type, like slowpoke, marill, barboach, carvanha, mantyke, tympole, gastrodon, dewpider, or frillish.>>1056538That's a definite plus. I'm kind of excited for hydro cannon, too.>>1056527If we did that, I'd like to do it at the dragon temple. Considering how munchlax doesn't normally learn it and all. Something far outside the norm should have an equally cool reason.
>>1056588Wasn't Gobble open to possibly bullshitting/coming up with some new megas? I could easily see some sort of Water/Dragon or Water/Dark for Feraligatr if it was absolutely needed. That may have been voted against, I don't remember.Ignoring that, IMO, going super perfect type coverage and only-highly-competitive mons isn't really the point of this run. We've already been champion prior, so there'd be a lot less surprises a second time around. We weren't even really going try-hard then, but now we have even less reason to. Anime rules are on our side, too.Slice of life, motherfucker, do you into it?
>>1056640I can into that. But there's a side to being powerful beyond competitiveness. The wilderness is dangerous, and we're unlucky. Having good coverage means being able to protect ourselves. Say we angered a primape. Bella resists fighting, but can't hit it super effectively. What if it had areal ace or something?
>>1056716All-mons-and-frying-pan skirmish? We start packing a firearm or giant bladed spoons/forks? Hide behind Laki and/or Hana?Concern for safety is understandable, though.
>>1056458Honestly, Snorlax can learn Bulldoze. Then we just need any fairy type for complete Coverage. Heck we could have gotten cutiefly earlier (which I wanted to, I'm still sad it didn't want to come with us) and had complete coverage and not need any more mons. Why do we even need six mon anyways?Sure we don't get STAB on all types, but it really doesn't matter since we want coverage for super effectiveness and it'll be enough to take down a Mon without it. In my mind Toto needed Herb and we didn't pick Gobble or Mace because we thought they'd have great team comp but because they needed our help and they wanted to travel with us. I think the toto will need Herb in a similar way. Also I really liked toto's personality. He seems like he'll be trouble and fun. Conflict is the spice of life after all.>>1056640I agree with a lot of what this anon said. I'm not sure if there will be Mega Evolutions, but I do look forward to getting to know our mons and forming closer bonds between trainer and mon.
>>1056816>Why do we even need six mon anyways?Because people want six mons, that simple.
>>1056816>I do look forward to getting to know our mons and forming closer bonds between trainer and mon.If you think back to the last quest our mons were in their Pokeballs (except maybe Vlad or Aria) like 80% of the time. I could also be totally misrembering. This time around they've been out pretty much constantly. No doubt intentional on Gobble's part, but it's a very nice change of pace.That's going to be less doable when several of them are massive beastly monsters, but still.
>>1056736I'd go for a skirmish if it were the best option at the time, but there's a reason 1-2 trainers directing 1-2 mon is the basic formula. It works. And a diverse team is the best way to do that.But honestly, we can manage just fine if we make a point of having diverse movepools.>>1056816>>1056845Preach.
>>1056845>>1056880I think not having at least 6 robs people from having their favorite, or another personality to interact with.
>>1056640Hmm... I want to see our friends whip out the custom Megas. I can see Jane whipping out a mega hitmonlee. I'd really like to see a truly massive mega wailord. Mega aggron already exists. Nobody else is that competitive.
>>1057015Megas suck. Anyways we already have plenty of slow defensive Pokemon. Did you not know the power of Sheer Force + Dragon Dance Gator?
>>1055544[I actually lost track of the days. To be honest I've been considering being a bit time-fucky for things like developing skills. For example, John is already a bit stronger after only a few days of pushing himself with various activities, and pokemon training and development is sped up more than you'd expect from any real animal. It's a bit of a cheat, but I think it's better for the sake of the quest than being too realistic. The setting uses a Jan-Dec calendar purely for the sake of being more accessible.]
>>1057426Honestly, I had just chocked Herb's quick gains up to island magic. And Pokémon are distinctly neither man nor mundane beast- they grow far faster than either, but while they can think complexly like humans, they're also way more instinctual, and are okay with being owned, like an animal. I'd like to try my hand at keeping track of the date for things like birthdays, seasons, and holidays. That's why I want to know the date.
>>1057426>>1057450Well let's count the days then. Day 1 was arriving on the island and meeting everyone. It ended with everyone camping out together.
>>1057454Day two was spelunking, and Bella's birthday!
>>1057546I think day three started with catching wailmer and ended with escorting drunk lake back.
>>1057558Day four started with getting mace examined, and ended with us getting knocked the fuck out by crabrawler.
>>1057564Day five started with challenging the gym, and ended naked with Keira.
>>1057565Day 6 started naked with Keira, ended at home.
>>1057576Day seven started with fishing, ended in the temple. Bella evolved!
>>1057583Day eight started with getting a shard, ended rich girl camping. Bella turned one week old.
>>1057584Day nine is ongoing. We caught toto.
ITS GONNA TAKE A LOT TO DRAG ME AWAY FROM YOU
>>1057605Bella stop shitposting
>>1057681Tell me oh wise anon, how can I learn to tell which of our pokemon is doing what shitposting like you can?
>>1057803So far only Bella is only confirmed for being a fellow anon. Not really, it's just a joke that might explain why she knows about lewd things while being so young. So pretty easily.
>>1057803I mostly knew it was bella because shes jealous of all the attention of toto
Ideal thread day is today, second best is?
>>1058546I'm sure Gobble will get back to us soon. Probably just got busy at work.
I've had an idea for a while that when we do a contest, we should have gobble, mace, and bella stack up totem-pole style so that bella will be tall enough for us to waltz with her.
Does anyone have any hopes for the mystery tm? I know explosion could be nice, but I'm kind of hoping for hidden power. If we're lucky we could get some nice coverage out of it. However, it stands to note that hidden power can't be fairy type. It could still be psychic or flying though. Substitute, or either half of the rest/sleep talk combo would be nice too. We might just be able to get gobble to teach the combo though.
>>1059790Any Tm will be useful in the quest, Rain Dance or Surf could be cool. Earthquake, Bulldoze, Shadow Ball, or Dazzling Gleam would be great coverage moves. Toxic would be a great for a status effect. Really, I'm sure we'll find a use for the Tm even its none of those.
>>1059881Imagine if its giga impact.
>>1059881>>1059894Knowing us, it'll be another copy of volt switch.
>>1059908I'd accept that assuming we rolled for the TM and just got horribly unlucky with it, otherwise I'd really hope for something at least a bit usable.
>>1059894Giga impact would be cool if Gobble can learn it as a Munchlax otherwise not all that useful.>>1059908I doubt it'll be another VoltSwitch, but I could believe it could be a TM none of our mons can learn. Could happen.
>>1059997Wait. Holy fuck. Gobble is goddamn broken. Recycle works on items used by fling. Fling can throw any held item. Gobble can clone anything he can throw. Berries. Dinners. Gold nuggets. Fishing bait. Pokeballs. We're rich.
>>1060096I see it more as just quickly finding the item you threw/dropped and picking it up off the ground. The fact it can fail against opponents with the ability Pickup I feel supports this, can't recycle something when they already did it for you.I will admit it gets silly with berries, but in game I think the intent is that Pokemon just take a bite out of it and drop it rather than devour it whole. ...Though that said, its interaction with Leppa Berries is still magic.
>>1060189While that's ultimately reasonable, I find the idea of recycle perfectly restoring items that should disperse or shatter (like shoal salt, sacred ash, relic vase, etc.) too funny/interesting to pass up on. Plus, I really like the idea of Gobble summoning up seconds, and thirds, and fourths, and fifths, and sixths of his favorite foods. It'll save Herb money, at least.As for pickup, I figure that's just magic. Once an item is considered to no longer be held by you, you can't recycle of it because of how recycle's magic works.
>>1059646Totodile: "And I'll form...the head!"
>>1061342>Aw yea, ready and waiting. How're you feeling Gobble? Kick that cold?
>>1061342Gobble, please don't run right now, Im in class and it would be so awkward to have a massive boner because of the fucking hype im feeling.

>>1061847YES. I am ready for this.
>>1061847I'll have to read tomorrow since it's 1 AM here in Europe and I have to wake up early, but still looking forward to doing that. Have fun, guys!And thanks for actually giving Val screen time last thread, Gobble. She needed it badly.
>>1061847Let it begin
>>1061847Awwwww yis!Feeling better, Gobble?
>>1061890ace trainer is not for exploitingace trainer is for having her pay you back with a date and then slowly you both start to fall for each other
>>1061905sounds like you never got an amulet coin anon
Finally figured out how to turn this thing.
>>1061936Still good, drawfriend. Ya done good.
And here is Herb, Scaring away a predator.
You hitch up your bag, and gently lower yourself onto Wailmer from the rock. As you do so, you lose your balance and fall right on top of Keira. The two of you barely avoid falling into the water.“Herb! You’re touching my-”“Gah!” You quickly retract your hand. “Sorry!”“I don’t mind.” She giggles. Coming from anyone else, you’d think she was hitting on you. But her voice is full of innocence and whimsy. “But, when we get to Eelilee, we probably shouldn’t touch.”Right. You remember about that being a thing in the culture. Holy people like Keira aren’t supposed to be directly touched unless you’re holy, yourself. It’s seen as presumptuous or insulting.“Yeah, Soft Hands. You’ll need to stop copping so many feels.” Laki lifts you off and pulls you back onto Wailmer. “Keep your mind and your aura clean.”“Actually, Herb has a really nice aura. Very shiny.” Keira playfully picks at the air around you. “But reading them isn’t something I’m that good at.”Laki gives Wailmer the signal and the large, round pokemon starts heading off. You fall back onto Laki this time.“Sorry!”“Sure you are.” The strong girl says with a hint of mischief in her voice as she gives you a nuggie. “So, got your butt kicked by some mouse pokemon, huh?”>Do some fishing. Improve your skills>Ask Keira to help you talk to Mace>Ask Laki to have a chat with Bella>Get a crash course on Eelilee>Something else

>>1061984Well i was gonna suggest Chonies for his deviant passion but I vote for Chomper (as suggested earlier)
>>1061994I like chomper
>>1061946>>Do some fishing. Improve your skills
>>1061996What about Dice? He shreds everything
>>1062014Oh, what if we can teach him an Aqua Tail/Crunch combo? We can call it 'SlapChop'
>>1062014Not gonna lie that sounds good too. I probably will miss the name vote since I'm at work for the next 5 hours
2/3rds of our pokemon have food/cooking based nicknames, what are some good names that could go with the theme?
>>1062023But then he would love our nuts.>>1062031I will second my own suggestion, Dice. Also they all are food in a way, you can eat Nightshade technically.
>>1062031He could be named after people we know. The first thing he did was try to rip out herbs jugular veinSo Jane might work.
>>1062031If we get a Scyther, can we name him Ginsu

>>1062050Thank you good sir
>>1062063Yes, and what is a water type we have been looking for?
>>1062050Welp, we already have a water mon...
>>1062082>Lugia>Water TypeThat is your Pokemon Autism card
>>1062075i'm hoping Relicanth though would be happy with chinchou
>>1062093would we really want to catch a repeat typing?
>>1062104Exactly>>1062093>2 repeating typesMake it stop
>>1062102Never hurts to have a back up>>1062110Not like we were planning on keeping Chinchou, the whole reason why we were even looking for one was for Hana
>>1062089Welp, time to commit Sudoku
>>1062082>>1062093>>1062104You all seem to forget we only have an old rod. We need a super rod to get a chance at like half of these.
>>1062128>wanting Pokemon with 2 types we already haveI mean yeah, there really isn't much I would want since we already have Totodile. I'm ready to eat my words when Gobble has something amazing.
>>1062138Hey, it could happen.
>>1062138>game mechanics that strictWhere do you think you are single post-kun?
>>1062138the rolls (and Gobble's will) determine what we catch. >>1062149Nice to see some optimism
>all these people asking Laki to have a talk with BellaYou know Laki's not going to care, right?Or worse, she's going to encourage her pranks, and become the one Bella runs to whenever we try to scold her.
>>1062150I posted before, just on wifi. Im the guy that posted earlier about being in class. Now Im on a bus back near my place. Im gonna change tags again when I get back on wifi at home.
You explain what happened to Laki. She does her best to not snicker while Bella watches, but she doesn’t do a very good job of it.“So I was hoping you could have a talk with her.”Laki shrugs. “Sure, but it sounds like you already took care of anything. You need more confidence, Soft Hands.” She checks your hands to see how they’re healing, and gives her approval. “Yup, still soft, like a girl that’s never done a hard day’s work in her life.” With that, she turns to Bella and takes her aside.You take this opportunity to do some fishing.You’re not sure why, but you’re feeling it today. You watch the line, the rod, and the water, and really absorb what they’re all telling you. Ooop! You’ve got something!You reel it it.There’s a surprising lack of resistance. As you pull it closer, you find out why.“That’s a funny looking fish.” Keira remarks.It’s a white, silk scarf. Despite being soaked, it looks in otherwise fine condition. Huh. Maybe you’ll check it out when it dries.You cast out again to do some more fishing. And in short order, your efforts are rewarded! You catch a big, non-pokemon fish. Before you can even bring it in, your Totodile leaps up and bites it off the line. It flops in his mouth.Gobble isn’t having any of that. He leaps to his feet and grabs it. The two start wrestling it back and forth. You’re not sure if it’s out of a sense of justice to stop the new pokemon, or if he just wants it for himself.Mace watches and does a gesture that you think means he’s shaking his head.>Guys! Calm down! You can split it>Nobody gets it. I’m releasing it.>Totodile! Stop. Thanks for helping, Gobble.>Gobble! Don’t attack a friend!>Something else
>>1062190Mostly was just trying to think of a way to be smug about being that strict with game mechanics.>>1062193>Guys! Calm down! You can split it
