Non-contradictory votes will be combined as best as possible.Write-ins for all votes are always welcome and encouraged. They may not all make it into the post or be altered to fit in, but I'll do my best to at least try to address the spirit of the write-in.Very important or contentious votes may be redone in a stricter voting system as circumstances warrant.Combat mechanics involve three rolls of 1d100, taking the best, and using the base accuracy and crit ranges of the game, roughly, but the 'turn order' will be more like the anime, where sometimes you can do a few moves in a row or be hit by a combo of moves yourself, all depending on circumstances. Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves, so beware of that timing. Speed is more important for closing ground, intercepting, and other things and doesn't necessarily mean going first.Call me out on a mistake and receive a suggestive picture, mostly likely a butt.Pokemon:Gobble (Munchlax)Mace (Roggenrola)Belladonna (Roselia)Dice (Totodile)Badges: 1Recently: You do a lot of overdue training, race Jane, and watch a battle.
>First or best gill
Oh yea made it home just in time
>>1175315Good taste, anon.
>>1175308I missed you the most, Gobble!!
Pastebin still lists tm as mystery. Is that a butt?
Volcarona floats back and forth while facing Gobble and keeping it’s distance. They’re in no hurry, and taking time to size you up. It flies strangely, like it’s tied to a point on the ground in front of it and is straining against a tether. You wonder how well it can maneuver or turn.The fire slowly expands anywhere it can be found. You remember a fire safety video you watched once that explained how quickly, exponentially, fire can grow. Things seem perfectly fine now, but it could spread quickly. Plus it’ll weaken parts and cause them to fall.It’s three pokemon each in this battle. But if that flying pokemon can probably just wait you out if you let it.>Rock Blast! Fire fire fire!

>>1175391>>Send Mace under and past it to get a better angle, first>>Iron Defense. Mace will be able to stay in a lot longer with that
>>1175391>Rock Blast! Fire fire fire! Don’t waste a second!Unless Iron Defense is being treated as a general buff to defenses I don't think it would help that much against a (primarily) special attacker. May as well just take advantage of its weaknesses.
>>1175460I was thinking as using it as long term durability and maybe to strengthen Mace when we start having him rocket around.
>>1175460I think the idea is that maybe it makes him heat resistant to the residual heat? But yeah, Volcarona isn't gonna have that many physical attacks unless the guy is going easy.
>>1175391>Rock Blast! Fire fire fire! Don’t waste a second!
>>1175391>GobbleBut we're using Mace!Uhhh....>Send Mace under and past it to get a better angle, first.>Rock Blast!

“Hurricane!” The Fire Priest yells.Winds whip up and soon Mace is engulfed in a furious tornado. It’s technically forming over the wooden platform, and that’s one of the big differences right? Maybe you should look that up after. Whatever the case, it starts pushing Mace, then lifts him into the air a few feet.Uh oh! A chunk of wood is going to hit him, too! It’s just your luck!“Mace! Iron Defense!”Mace quickly uses the move before smashing into the flying wooden column and coming to a skidding stop. He looks relatively unscathed from that.“Good, job, Mace!”“Clever, but it won’t save you from the heat of our souls!”What does that mean?>Mace! Rock Blast, now!>Use your energy to rocket in its face.

“Sunny Day!”The fire closes in on Mace. You hadn’t noticed at first, but the winds from before really accelerated it. The edges fall away and Mace begins to run out of room. He can stay for a bit, but not long. The sunlight is slowly increasing.“Mace! Rock Blast!”The fiery bug (is it flying type or bug type?) works on Sunny Day and already charging it’s attack while Mace fires a barrage of rocks. They pelt Volcarona, once, twice, thrice! Then another! The fire pokemon twirls as it goes down below the flat wooden area that Mace is on..But it rises up! One wing beats twice as hard as the other as it manages to land on the wooden platform. It’s surrounded by fire on all sides.“Solar Beam! Save Absorb for the next one!”Green energy gathers around it.

“Mace! Headbutt! Give it everything you have! And when you’re done that, give it more!”Mace listens, and he hears you. He feels you. There are smarter, or more clever ways to handle this situation. But this isn’t about that. This is about the heat of battle. He’s made it clear he wants you to show your passion. For this one fantastic moment, you’re not trying to win a battle. You’re going to win a test of wills. It’s not even about fighting your insecurities, although that’s probably the spark that made you decide to do this. It’s that deep, hidden, frightening desire to go beyond your limits, and to push Mace to go beyond his. There’s nothing scarier or more excited than seeing where they truly are.Mace runs, then rockets at his opponent. He’s lifted off the ground and picking up speed.The Fire Priest laughs madly. “Yes. YES! Glorious! The way of fire isn’t hiding it the shadows, it’s bringing the light and heat of your passion out for all to see!” Mace rockets around a splintering chunk of wood. The green light finishes gathering around Volcarona. Even if it’s your opponent, you can’t help but admire the it’s grace and concentration as it fires.The beam blows into Mace, almost stopping him in mid flight. But he fires stronger and pushes on. The fire all around suck into the green energy beam, creating a terrible and awesome blow of wind and heat. But Mace pushes even harder.Everything slows. The sparks and fire and debris float and everything stands still. It's only now that you realize that you're screaming.Their heads collide. Volcarona and Mace crash over the edge of the platform. Volcarona is clearly out, but it’s unclear about Mace.>Retrieve him. That’s good enough.>Mace! Grab that lower platform!>Rocket back up! You can fly now, right?>Something else
>>1176124>>Mace! Grab that lower platform!

“Mace! Grab on!”Mace shakes himself awake. His foot stretches out, reaching for the vertical beam. He’s dropping quickly.He connects. It causes him to spin and create a cacophony of wooden tones as his limbs embed into, then come out of, the wooden beam. He slows enough to come to a yanking stop, and you breath a sigh of relief.Volcarona is retrieved, then replaced with a Rapidash. It lands on the platform above Mace. They don’t have line of sight to each other, but that doesn’t mean Mace is safe where he is.>Start attacking support pillars.>Just take a minute to recover, he has to be exhausted>Start climbing up.

“Just rest for a minute. Don’t strain yourself.”Rapidash stomps a hole into the floor. The strong pokemon loses it’s balance for a second as it has to fish it’s foot out. For being on such a rickety and flaming platform, it sure is keeping calm. You guess this isn’t it’s first time, though.“Gah. Can’t get it much wider than that, can you? No matter. Ember! Force it out of hiding and Solar Beam”Mace peaks out from the pillar he’s stuck himself into. A whizzing Ember pelts him in the face and burns him. He uses his Rawst berry, though. But still, he’s it rough shape. You think even another weak move like that might just knock him off, or out.Rapidash rears back and looks for a better angle of attack. It tries stomping around the hole to enlarge it.“Your passion is admirable, but your pokemon is in an impossible position. Throw in the towel for him, and send your next one out.”Is that a test, or does he mean that?>”Good job, Mace, but you’re done.” Swap pokemon>Fire a Mud Slap to that hole as soon as it rears it’s head.>Try Smack Down.

>>1176658Goodnight Sweet Prince
>>1176653son you were not around for the robins eye fiasco, when gobble even hints that something is dangerous it means that it is goddamn dangerous.
>>1176663Mace is brave and stalwart. He did good.
>>1176663Hey, it might not be drowning or erosion. Perhaps he might be forced to evolve?>in b4 naivety bites us in the ass
>>1176684Why would it be any of those things?
>>1176696because when gobble hints that something is dangerous, and you do it anyway and then you critfail it is the end of all happiness. It's how is should be really, quests are more fun that way in the general.
>>1176734But this isn't like that and we didn't crit fail.
“Mace! Rocket up and Smack Down!”Mace moves his weight up and down. One, two three, and he jumps up. He fires his excess energy to fly up.But it gives out after a second. He reaches an apex, then starts going down. He makes a noise and pushes to give himself more power, but despite getting a few feet higher, it’s a losing battle.More wood is kicked out, and Rapidash has a large hole to fire through.“Solar- no. Fire Spin.” His tone has disappointment in it. “Carefully.”Mace is spun around in a whirlwind of fire. It slows his descent and he bumps his head into a pillar. It’s not that hard, but it takes out whatever fight was left in him.And it also keeps him from dropping into the water like a...well, a rock. You look to the Fire Priest. Give motions to Mace with his great eyebrows.You take the hint and retrieve Mace before he starts falling faster.“Good job, Mace. I’m proud of you.”You reach for your next pokemon. Rapidash looks like it’s getting antsy on the flaming, flat open platform. It won’t last much longer.>Dice, go!>Gobble, you’re up!>Belladonna, I choose you!>Something else
>>1176745Almost choked good job anon
>>1176734Counterpoint: This is a gym battle. Against a priest. I don't see him just letting anything too terrible happen without trying to stop it first.
>>1176741pretty sure gobble counts a 5 or less as a critfail and a 95 or more as a crit, with critfails overwriting all rolls.
>>1176753>Gobble, you're up!
>>1176753>Gobble, you’re up!
>>1176753>Gobble, you're up!Time to do some horse-punching.
>>1176753>>Dice, go!Honestly, if we had smacked the pillars we could have taken that Rapidash out or made it a lay up for Dice or Gobble.>>1176769No. 1s are critfails, 100 are crit success, 95+ is a critical hit in the battle system with 100 being double plus good.
>>1176753>Dice, go!If the platforms are breaking we need somebody with a bit of speed.
>>1176753>Gobble, you’re up!Got to be careful of solar beam, so no Dice for this fight.
>>1176765>gym leader: hey, you should recall your Pokemon, it's in a bad position and almost fainted.He did try.
>>1176794Not what he said
>>1176786Dice is also susceptible to solar beamThere's still a battlefield for Gobble to utilize and his Thick Fat offers him better protection. If we send Dice in now and we lose all the platforms Gobble will have no zero mobility. This way, if Gobble gets KO'd, Dice has the water advantage.
>>1176794I meant more in the sense that he wouldn't deliberately hit at full force or do anything else that would seriously risk it's health. Which is exactly what he did.
>>1176819It sets a bad precedent and example to have our Pokemon's safety at the mercy of other trainers, even if it's in a friendly battle.
>>1176819I would expect him to call the entire match off as no winner like that one leader did to Vance, and we would have it coming.
>>1176819You're right, a gym leader would try his best to keep his opponent's pokemon safe. But it's irresponsible to bank on that and use that as an excuse to push our pokemon too hard. Probably not a good habit to fall into.
>>1176819>>1176833>>1176845>>1176864Also Gobble has thrown this at us time and again whenever a mon is past health. barring a scar or too the come out fine.
>>1176883We didn't have Bad Luck any of those times, either.
>>1176888We did have much worse mental problems
>>1176883he did the "roll to see how badly your mon is permanently crippled" roll and we rolled well, it could have gone much much fucking worse.
>>1176895Your point is?
“Gobble! You’re up!”You send Gobble out. He lands on the least flame-touched part of the platform. But it’s got to be getting hot there.The Fire Priest looks lost in thought for a second, but the appearance of a new opponent takes him right out of it. “Rapidash! Let’s show that Munchlax what speed means!”Oh yeah. Rapidash are supposed to be really fast.Gobble slams his fist into his hand, then makes a sumo stance. His small size makes it look more cute than menacing.Rapidash lowers it’s head in preparation to charge.>Metronome!>Amnesia, get that special defense up!>Focus Punch, that’ll ring its bell!>Chip Away.

Snorlax is grrat, but Munchlax is significantly significantly better.>Focus Punch, that’ll ring its bell!Punch the ground once it starts its charge. Trying to outspeed a Rapidash is pointless, so let's make it so it doesn't have room to even use its speed. This should also minimize the chances of it interrupting our punch.
>>1177041Never mind, I'm slow.

>>1177069>>1177077I don't think Gobble has been strictly following the official weight. I'm reasonably sure Gobble has fallen asleep lying on top of someone, and they didn't immediately die.>>1177074A compelling point, but I still like Munchlax more.
>>1177092By my estimations munchlax is about as dense as tar, given a weight of 231 lbs.
>>1177146But he's much more cuddly than tar.
>>1177151Less likely to leave you all sticky as well.
>>1177158See? He's perfect just the way he is.
“Poison Jab! Let’s take a bite out of that staying power Munchlax’s have!”He’s not just blindly attacking in his passion. He’s smart. The fire horse points it’s horn and charges. Gobble is hit hard and poisoned. You’re glad you’ve been feeding him well during training and working on defenses, because on any other pokemon, that would probably do more damage.It’s your turn. “Gobble, counter with Metronome!”Gobble flicks his fingers, wiggles them, then looks confused and worried as energy gathers all around him.“What move is that?” You hear an observer say.Rapidash takes a step back.Then Gobble Explodes! The wood platform cracks into a thousand pieces and flies in different directions. Rapidash flies off of it and smacks into the cliff-side, kicking and panicking. The fire Priest holds an arm over his face to shield from splinters as he retrieves his pokemon.Your heart falls into your stomach from worry before you spot Gobble. He’s on a bit of platform that’s crashing down. You quickly retrieve the poor, fainted, Munchlax.You feel a slight aura of disapproval from the crowd. You’re not sure why. Nobody is calling you names or anything, it just feels like you’re losing everyone after the great display Mace gave earlier. You definitely weren’t hoping for a move like that, but you’re still impressed with the power of it.“Good job, Gobble. Sorry your time was so short.” You try to sound optimistic. That wasn't exactly lucky.The only part left is the more indoor-ish area of the temple. The explosion took off a lot of the top of that, though. >Send Belladonna>Send Dice>Wait to see who he sends out first, although that’d give him time to use something.>Something else

Jane gives you a funny, scary look. It feels like she’s pressuring you or something. She’s got a strong presence sometimes.The Fire Priest throws out his pokemon at the same time as you. He hasn’t said anything about the Explosion.“Go, Dice!”“Go, Quilava!”The furry little ferret quickly finds cover inside the remaining building. Even with all the damage and windows removed, there are places it can hide. You can clearly see Dice though, and he’s wandering in to find his opponent.The fire licks around the edges. He might be waiting you out. Or he might be luring you into thinking that so he can pounce.>Use Rage. Maybe it’ll attack.>Water Gun where you think it’s hiding.>Use Scary Face.

“Inferno! Let it feel your burning passion!!”As it comes out of it’s hiding spot and unleashes flaming hot heck, Dice casually bends backwards and completely avoids it. A huge gout of flame crashes against the cliff side near you. Wow, despite being so far, you still feel the warmth.“Scary Face! Don’t let it use it’s speed to get away!”It freezes as it sees the terrifying look Dice gives. You can’t see it from this angle, but it must be a good one. Quilava doesn’t even try to run back to cover now. It’s caught completely out in the open.>Water Gun, now!>Bite and run it through the thin, damaged wall and over the edge>Rage.

>>1177480>Water Gun, now!Really tempted to go for the bite, but we already kind of had a brutish match, and dunked them in the water with a chomp would probably not go over too hot.
>>1177480>Water Gun, now!We've got it right where we want it. Let's try and finish things quickly. This gym scares me.
>>1177480>Water gun, now!
We really need a not special water move.

>>1177551Yes. Hes not always gonna be able to be up close and personal, say against a flying opponent. Auxiliary moves arent a bad option. Plus we could always work on his Sp Atk stat.
>>1177560Aqua Jet gives some aerial mobility if we go by anime rules.
>>1177563Now that I think about it, it'd be neat to use Hydro Pump as a rocket booster.
>>1177563Limited mobility. It doesnt hurt to be versatile. How do you think we are getting Dice to learn Croc Fu?
>>1177566Maybe, but good night fellow anons. Drag that fucker into the depths if water gun doesn't cut it.
>>1177570Night anon. We'll see what we can do
“Water Gun!”Dice spits a stream of water at his fiery opponent. It strikes her and almost pushes her over, but she’s low to the ground and it’s still a relatively weak move. It hurts a lot, though. Steam rises up from the water that splashes on the floor and walls. The fire is closing in.“A basic strategy, but you should know that we face Water types all the time. I hope you’re bringing more passion like how you started. Wild Charge!”Quilava hugs the floor and runs up. It’s slower than you’d expect, but you guess that’s what Scary Face is for. Electrical sparks fly off of it as it rushes and slams into Dice. They both tumble backwards and stop a few very short feet before the edge closest to you.Quilava looks like she’d think twice before using that move again, but at the same time, she might not have a choice. Mace flops backwards and somehow manages to get himself upright. You’re not sure if that was the result of your training or he just landed that way.“It comes down to this.” The fire Priest says. A wooden beam crashes down where the pokemon were fighting a few seconds ago. “Don’t let the heat of the moment blind you, though.”What does that mean?>Water Gun again! Finish this!>Put everything into dodging the next attack. He’s up to something.>Bite! They’ll expect a water attack again>Something else

don't wanna be that guy, but shouldn't a gym leader get more than one roll? Obviously way too late now. I also don't think this was too easy or anything, I'm just pointing it out.

“Quick Attack! If it doesn’t finish him, then get away and let the fire do it!”“Bite! Hurry!”Quilava ducks down, then slams into Dice. A ranged attack might have missed it. But that doesn’t mean Bite will hit. The fire pokemon is scrambling away. But Dice shifted his weight around, using his tail as a counterbalance, and already has his teeth closing down on Quilava’s rear end. He lifts it off the ground and shakes it all over. He tosses Quilava away into a wall.The fire pokemon lays on the ground. But then it puts its front paws down and starts pushing.Dice leans over. He’s heaving. Oh jeez, the heat must be really intense, the fire is all around him. But you can’t tell if Quilava is totally out or not. It’s still moving, but still on the ground.The structure creaks and drops a foot. It’s going to completely give way any second now.You look to the gym leader. His arms are folded and he’s watching closely.>Wait until the last possible second.>Retrieve him now.>Dice! Attack again!>Something else[Last vote of the night]

>>1177892I mean that was the idea at the start of the quest, I honestly don't care
>>1177892I always preferred the interpretation that we got more dice, but opponents had advantages behind the scenes that influenced the outcome, even on good rolls.
>>1177904I can see going with this, as long as it's a conscious decision. After all, gobble can know all our plans, but we can't know theirs. Npc's also have the advantage of having one consistent train of thought. Either way is great with me if it's a stated decision.
“Dice! Help that Pokemon and both of you get out of there now!”You see him go deeper into the structure. It shifts and you let out a nervous “Eep!”The fire climbs higher. You can see the support beams being eaten away by the fire.You bite your nails. You hate biting your nails. You only do it when you’re really, really worried.Dice finally appears in view. He's carrying a struggling Quilava. It fights him as he pulls it out.A major wooden beam cracks and it starts falling! Oh no oh no oh no! Dice runs out, holding the still-fighting Quilava. He dives out. Even in his spacious, less aware nature, he seems annoying that Quilava is struggling with him. He gives a gentle but commanding bite as they both fall.Quilava vanishes in a beam of light, and you look up to see the Fire Priest holding her ball.He nods to you. Somehow, you feel a similar type of validation as that time you helped Grandpa put in a new fence.There’s a quiet splunk noise far below.Dice! You quickly take out his ball and call him back. Only a few short seconds later, the entire structure comes crashing down.You watch it for a few seconds, then feel the overwhelming need to sit down. You let Dice out. He gently bites your arm.“Good job, Dice. Good job.”[We're running again tomorrow. Thanks for coming!]

>>1177997I-I don't think I could handle shipping wars which extend even to our pokemon. It's hard enough trying to figure out if any of these girls are good enough for Herb without worrying about if MaceXBella would work out.
>>1177980We've got the best team. Gobble loves hugs, Bella is a cute little shit, Mace tries to look commanding but is just a very serious pebble, and Dice communicates by nibbling.And they'll all grow up so fast. It's almost enough to make a guy tear up.

Stronger moves tend to take more time and have more cooldown than weaker moves, so beware of that timing.

>>1180823Awesome, lets do this!
>>1180823Awwwww yeah, time to get yelled at!
inb4 no badge
You sit on your butt for a minute. You feel like the battle lasted hours. Belladonna and Dice aren’t sure what to do and sit next to you. Well, Bella is more interested in the people watching, but they’re quickly losing interest.Jane’s shadow stands over you. You can just tell it’s hers now. You look up and see her making a funny face. Before she can say anything, the Fire Priest's voice nearly plows you both over.“Little John. What a battle.”“Thanks. You too.”“I wasn’t finished. Now, that head on attack with your Roggenrola. That was something else. You did that purely for the passion of it. But keeping him in after he had no hope, and exploding with your other pokemon,” he raises a hand to silence you preemptively, “I know, it was Metronome, but moves like that are like starting a bonfire deep in the woods. You let your fire get out of control. And rescuing Quilava. You must understand that I had everything under control. Why did you do it? Hmmm? Do you think you know better than I, who has this battle every year? Hmmm?”>You just wanted to make sure Quilava got out okay>You’re sorry, it won’t happen again>You didn’t think about it, you just did it.>Something else

>>1180902>You didn't think about it, you just did it
>>1180902>You didn’t think about it, you just did it.I saw someone in danger and I had to help. It wasn't really even a decision.
>>1180902>You didn’t think about it, you just did it.>"Guess I still have a lot to learn, huh?"Say, Gobble, what's the next lewdbin going to be after this one? Hana, perhaps?
>>1180902>You just wanted to make sure Quilava got out okay
“I didn’t think about it. I just acted.”He looks you up and down, and strokes his chin.He bursts into laughter. “You’re a hothead. A man led by his determination, ambition, and competitive nature. But you’re not getting the passion badge.” He doesn’t have to laugh.Your heart sinks. You let your pokemon down. How are you going to explain it to them after they trained so hard? Dice gently bites your hand, and Bella looks to Laki over on the other side to fix it.“You’re getting the warmth badge. Because I think under that reckless, fiery spirit, you’re a nurturer at heart. And I want you to remember that the next time you let your competitive nature get the best of you. You don’t need any help there, unlike most young trainers. You’ll be fine in time if you keep yourself in check, young John.”He pins the badge on your shirt. Oh man, not this shirt, the material isn’t supposed to get pins in it. You fight the urge to say something and let it happen. You can fix it later, probably.You feel a bit guilty in that you’re questioning his judgement a bit after all this. But you put that thought aside for now though.“Jane. You’re clever. You’re focused. You’re a torch. A jet. Your flame isn’t large, but it’s able to weld and build.” He chuckles to himself as he pins a badge on her. “You keep your friend in check. Your cool head is valuable in the heat of the moment. But you need to work on stoking your ambition and drive. Dream big.” He leaves to go to the others.Jane’s face has changed. When she first approached, she looked like she wanted to say something. But now she’s got that same wicked grin. Like her assumptions about you were all proven right.>Congratulate her on her badge. That was impressive.>So, that guy’s really wrong about us, huh?>Stop looking at me like that! I’m sick of it, Jane!>Disregard her. Try to heal your pokemon.>Something else

>>1181100>Stop looking at me like that! I’m sick of it, Jane!I know it's not going to win, but I want to see where the option leads.
>>1181005[This one is Hana and Val. After that, I'm not sure. I was thinking Jane just to round it out. Open to any requests, though.]
>>1181100>Congratulate her on her badge. That was impressive.>Stop looking at me like that, please.
>>1181100>Congratulate her on her badge. That was impressive.>Try to heal your pokemon.There's no reason we can't try to multitask.
>>1181100>Congratulate her on her badge. That was impressive.>Stop looking at me like that! I’m sick of it, Jane!It seems in character for us to say something like this right now. We already got mad at Polu for this, and that was when we weren't slightly upset about something else. Maybe not as an outburst in front of the gym leader, but saying it more quietly.
>>1181100>Congratulate her on her badge. That was impressive.>Try to heal your pokemon using magic healing hands
>>1181134Sure, a Jane lewdbin sounds good. She deserves one, too.10/10 picture, by the way.

>>1181216Powers. That or we're rolling to try and survive Jane's smug.Also... does anyone know why she's happy? I thought she thought herb was an evil mastermind? How is him getting the warm and loveable badge proving that?
>>1181134Laki watching Herb
I want a lewdbin of either Jane or Herb snapping and doming the other
>>1181222Well I'm late.
>>1181134I-i want one of Herb treating Laki like a princess a-and s-she dies of embarrassment but loves every second of it.
>>1181232I guess because he said we were a hothead and she was the calm and collected one?
>>1181254But.. being a hot head isn't necessarily a good thing.
>>1181232 “You’re a hothead. A man led by his determination, ambition, and competitive nature.Plus she got praised by an authority figure, and therefore "beat" us, so she's smarmy.
>>1181232She probably thinks Herb's only won the runner up badge.
>>1181262That is why she is smiling
>>1181266We pretty much did.
>>1181134Lewdbins aside, it would be good to have another one of those posts outlining what each character thinks of Herb. His pokemon's opinions in particular I'd like to see.
>>1181134Hana's lewd dream about rule 63 of the groupAlthough I'm more interested in it in a comedic sense than lewd
Y'know, I'm a bit curious about something the priest said. Priest seems to think Jane needs to stoke her ambition and drive.My gut instinct is "bullshit", but I can't actually back that up. I have literally no idea what Jane actually wants out of her life. Maybe that's where the priest is coming from, saying she's thinking smaller than she should be.Maybe we could bring it up with her?
>>1181274We still beat him and didn't do anything that wrong.>>1181287I mean this guy is super wrong about both of us, maybe that is a test.
>>1181293And i agree with that. I just feel this priest is slighting us, giving us the 'participation' badge
>>1181315The "gym leaders" in this region so far have been pretty dickish about giving out badges. I'm kinda thinking we should say something about it again.
>>1181293It would be interesting to hear Jane try to explain it, though. Talking shit about a priest's character judgement would tighten her right up, but if she doesn't dismiss him then he has to be on the money with her as well.She could always dodge, though. Not sure how far we want to try and chase that thread.
>>1181249Good lord, we're reaching levels of lewd that shouldn't be possible
>>1181325Agreed. Are there more than 8 gyms, cause if so, we put the "Lukewarm" badge in our bag and forget about it.
>>1181331I mean we have have been pretty in control of our emotions, but this is getting pretty annoying and when Herb snaps it isn't gonna be pretty.>>1181344I still think the Electric Leader was an ass to Hana too, yeah she didn't commit that hard, but that is a style of battling.
>>1181315I assumed that it was a different-but-equal sort of badge; a badge for nuturing warmth instead of blazing passion.
>>1181315I disagree. I think he's a little overconfident about what he can tell about a person from a battle, but truth is Herb's warm and Jane's focused. And Herb's ambition is dangerous in the sense that he can stretch himself too thin. If Jane really only wants to show us up, then she should aim for something more meaningful.
>>1181354Yeah I'm not getting the participation award vibe other anons are. It's like they want to be slighted
>>1181354Maybe, but i dont recall him bringing up 'nurturing warmth' through out the either of Jane's or Herb's battle.
>>1181354I'm happy with our badge. John is nurturing. Fire can be nurturing. It works.I don't see a problem unless it isn't accepted by the Elite Four, or something. Until someone can show me that there's a substantive issue I'd like to move on from the subject.
>>1181354>>1181369Really I think it is just that the gym leaders are trying to be role models and help people grow as people. But their attitudes rub me the wrong way.>>1181385I'm fine with the badge, but yeah. Not really worth starting shit over.
>>1181385Yeah, same. This priest was a pretty nice dude, all things considered; a far cry from the first gym leader, who seemed to just not be that great a guy on the whole.The only real issue, as usual, is Jane being a cunt.
>>1181369We've got to hit the drama levels of Pokemon Quest somehow~
>>1181398I guess you just have an authority issue, pretty common with anon types. I'm not saying this to be mean, just an observation of the kind of people who hang out on 4chan.
>>1181403Is it so much to ask for that I want to get some adventure, casual battling, and training in instead of wading through threads of waifu cage-matches and bitching out gym leaders?I'm exaggerating, but don't think I've forgotten about the oft-stupid shit storms of the last quest.
>>1181353>that is a style of battlingHe explicitly noted that she was too afraid to let her pokemon get hurt. Something like that isn't a strategy, it's something completely incompatible with battling that she'll have to overcome if she wants to be a good battler.>>1181376I don't recall him saying "that badge is a consolation prize" either.
>>1181403When we get the triple nat 1 in a battle that is close or to save someone then we can get to that level.>>1181415I think its honestly I'm just riled up by Jane and know we won't yell at her so I'm looking for someone to blame. Anyways butts.
>>1181428I mean, I'm fairnews, I doubt he'd call it a consolation prize even if it were one. I don't think it is, but him not saying it doesn't really mean anything.
>>1181433>I think its honestly I'm just riled up by Jane and know we won't yell at her so I'm looking for someone to blame. Anyways butts.Let's write a Herb-Jane fanfic where he doms her until she's an ecstatic, quivering mess of bodily fluids. At least then we can be productive with our Jane-fueled anger.
>>1181455The point is that there isn't nearly enough reason at this moment to assume that it's just a participation prize.
>>1181457Jane turning out to be incredibly submissive in the bedroom would actually be kind of funny.
>>1181472>Not wanting a battle of dominance with Jane in bed
>>1181457Only if Jane spends the afterglow of trying to find out how this is part of our grandmaster plan all along
>>1181457Yeah, that sounds nice.
>>1181488>>1181472I do not foresee Herb getting her in bed anytime soon. But that is what lewdbins are for, I suppose.
>>1181472please no, gobble is already pulling that with Laki (kinda)
>>1181488>not wanting to gain dominance and have Jane roll over in the face of Barbarian Herbshoo shoo Hitler
>>1181506Jane's the long game. Gonna take some time to get through to the soft center
>>1181520Huh... That picture certainly hits my buttons. Yes it do.
>>1181525She's like one of those hard candies with an inside of chocolate or some other filling.
>>1181520Well of course I want to come out on top in the end but not before a long hard battle of sweat and other various fluids.
Janefag here, I'm liking all this talk. Her soft center is something I want to find and then tease her with it as my master plan
>>1181580>various fluids.Yeah, I bet Herb's into foodplay.
You let your pokemon out and check them over. Gobble is awake but not moving. He looks too comfortable to move. Dice is still running around, but much slower. He took that Wild Charge dead on. Mace is just as pooped as Gobble, but he looks really content.Jane eyes them over as well, then, satisfied they’re okay, holds out her finger. “You may be able to fool some people with that ‘nurturer’ act, and even the wisest of priests might buy into it a little, but the fire priest called you out on your endless ambition. It’s only a matter of time before everyone else figures it out, and-”“You all did great.” You whisper to your pokemon. You close your eyes and put your hands on Mace. You reach in deep to try to heal him. You feel like there’s maybe a little progress, but not much. He’s really tired. Still, it’s better than before, and he looks like despite his injuries, he can move around a bit.Gobble is much the same. He’s not totally knocked out anymore, but you’d hesitate to use him in a battle without a big advantage. He looks a little confused at the sudden increase of energy, but dismisses all thoughts when you toss him and the others some food.Dice is healed a little too. You figure it counts for as much as healing the Quick Attack damage. Maybe a little less, that Quilava could hit.“...And that’s why, as my rival, I won’t go easy on you. And...hey, did you give them some sort of weak potion? You’re not cheaping out on that stuff, are you?” She turns from normal Jane to angry Jane.Satisfied, you get up and face Jane. You shake her hand. “You were really impressive. You earned that badge. Charizard looked really tough.”She’s a bit dumbstruck but she lets you shake. She even seems happy, for a second.Her eyes go wide suddenly and she examines her hand, the grabs yours to look at your palm. “Huh. Nevermind. I thought I felt something.” She even relaxes a bit. “Well. I guess Mace was impressive back there too. Enough to make up for your lack of strategy, anyway.” She leans over to look at your badge. “Do you know the history of why there are different badges? Don’t answer, I can tell from your face you don’t. If you don’t want me to crush you the next time we battle, go do some research on the islands. It’s about respect, mainlander.” She turns to walk away. Despite her words, her tone wasn’t all bad. It’s warming up.>Bye! See you later!>Schedule a battle with her soon. Last time was educational.>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.>Something else
>>1181580gotta have an endgame anonAfter the dozens of battles that make up the war, Herb must subjugate the native population
>>1181600>Bye! See you later!
>>1181600>>Bye! See you later!
>>1181600>Schedule a battle with her soon. Last time was educational.>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee
>>1181600>>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.Even though I'm a dyed in the wool Laki fag I can't not vote for this
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.
>>1181600>>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.not even a Janefag, but come on
>>1181600>>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.
>>1181600>Bye! See you later!>Schedule a battle with her soon. Last time was educational.
>>1181457>>1181472Get out of here with that shit.
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.>>1181604Sorry. I was out of line. Clearly, Herb would never waste food.
>>1181600Alright, changing >>1181621to >Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.I bet she'd love to show off her knowledge, assuming she doesn't immediately dismiss it as a ploy.
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffeeWould be nice to have some insight into the priest mentality
>>1181600>>Bye! See you later!Nuh uh. She's improving, but not enough to be worth inflicting her on us more than necessary.
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffee.Slowly but surely, we'll make Jane less of a hardass.
>>1181600>>1181506>>1181134Janebin IdeaIt's her final confrontation with evil mastermind Herb and she's running to deliver the final blow when she trips and falls on her face. When she get's up she finds Herb there helping her and asking if she's okay. And then they have a date and things progress from there leading to things like hand holding and kissing.Jane then wakes up in bed with a vague sense of dread but no solid memory of her dream.
>>1181600>Ask her to teach you. Maybe over coffeeheh she is gonna freak the fuck out when she learns about healing powers, she may doubt us and even other peoples judgement of us but how do you argue that somebody with possibly holy healing powers is a bad guy.did we somehow trick the pokegods?damn our villainy knows no bounds!
>>1181693Watch as we slowly ascend to being some unholy combination of Creed and Wesker, at least in Jane's head.
I need a Jane lewdbin
>>1181600>Bye! See you later!She's not wrong. She can't be wrong. It's everyone else who's wrong.
“Maybe you could teach me sometime. How about over coffee. My treat.”She stops. She very slowly turns around. She looks furious. She grabs your shirt and yanks you close. “That’s not funny!”“What’s not-”“Never, ever, joke about a date, or jerk a girl around. What, you just want to humiliate me and call me names, huh?”“No, I just wanted to have some coffee and talk. I didn’t mean it as a date, or-”She lets go. “Just coffee and talking? That wasn’t some sort of date joke?”“It wasn’t. Honest. I want to learn more and I think you could teach me.”She looks into your eyes. “Okay, then. Before the next gym battle. But you’re not paying for mine. Bring something to write with, and don’t dress too well.” She looks like she’s trying to hide her face. “Sorry,” she barely mumbles as she fixes up your collar, then turns away.“But where are you going next, and how will we-”“Please. I’ll know where you are. Train hard until then.” She walks off.You head over to Hana, Laki, Keira, and Valerie.“Have fun with Jane?” Laki asks sarcastically.“That was intense!” Keira almost yells. “Right, Nincada?”“Congratulations.” Hana says. “You must have trained hard. I’m glad I didn’t go.”“You aren’t going to battle?” Valerie asks.“Sorry for making you come all the way over here.” Hana looks embarrassed.“I told you. I don’t care as long as we can get to the contests. But you came to challenge the gym, right?”>She should go for it! Feel the passion of your heart! Or something.>Want to train together?>You bet he’d recognize her nurturing side too. Maybe she can try that path.>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.>Something else.
>>1181913>Want to train together?>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.
>>1181913>>She should go for it! Feel the passion of your heart! Or something.
>>1181913>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.
>>1181913>She should go for it! Feel the passion of your heart! Or something.Failing that>Want to train together?
>>1181913>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.>Want to go fishing? I could use a way to wind down after that.
>>1181913>>You bet he’d recognize her nurturing side too. Maybe she can try that path.>>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.
>>1181913>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.>Want to train together?>Why are you glad you didn't go?a. That picture kinda terrifies meb. Jane herself really terrifies mec. Poor Hana Banana. You can do it!
>>1181913>She should go for it! Feel the passion of your heart! Or somethingFailing that, >Fishing
>>1181913>She should go for it! Feel the passion of your heart! Or something.>Want to train together?
>>1181913>>Want to train together?>>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.
>>1181913>>Want to train together?If gyms aren't going to be her thing, that's fine. But we should take the chance while training to push her on what she wants to do instead.We know she's generally trying to get out and live life more fully, but she could use more focus on what that actually means.
>>1181913>It’s her choice. Don’t try to pressure her.>Want to train together?
>>1181913>>She should go for it! Feel the passion of your heart! Or something.Or>>Want to train together?Either is fine with me, Hana.
>>1181913Jane is cute.I hope she rapes us eventually.
>>1182211That's a weird thing to hope for. I'd rather Herb enjoy it if it happens.
gobble is kill
“Don’t worry, Hana. You’ll do fine!” Valerie tries to encourage her. She gets distracted when Laki puts an arm around over her shoulder, though.“Well, if you don’t want to, that’s fine. But if you want to train, maybe we can do it together?”“Do it together?” She gulps, then shakes her head. “Train! Right! I’d like that. But I think I should get a third pokemon first. Could we do it...train, after?”“You two were going to fish, right?” Keira says. “Want any help?”She doesn’t sound like she’s inviting herself. Ever since you had that talk, she’s been trying to help out with small things here or there. You’re not sure if you should discourage this to stop her from feeling like she has to all the time, or if you should invite her along so she’s included.You look to Hana. She smiles. No hints there. At least, none you can read. You’re starting to think that girls say a lot when they don’t say anything at all. Like how dad gets reminded to take out the trash or do other things just by looking at mom sometimes.>Sure. Let’s all go>Fish with you and Hana only>Let’s go later tonight.>Something else
>>1182229>>Sure. Let’s all go>The more rods dipped in the more likely we'll get a big one!
>>1182229That picture is a sin>Sure. Let’s all go
>>1182229>>Let’s go later tonight.Night fishing is fun stuff
>>1182229>Sure. Let’s all goEveryone seems to get along so there should be no problems.
>>1182229>Sure. Let’s all go
>>1182229>Fish with you and Hana only>"How about you help me cook any fish we catch later, Keira?" Non-pokemon fish implied.
>>1182229>>Sure. Let’s all go>>1182235Hey, now. Let's not make Hana's head explode.
>>1182229>>Sure. Let’s all go>Let’s go later tonight.
>>1182244Keira doesn't eat meat, I kind of doubt she'd want to prepare it
>>1182229>Fish with you and Hana onlyI'd like more one-on-one time with Hana.We do need to learn more about the dual badge thing going on with the gyms, though. Maybe we can have Keira teach us about that later on.
>>1182229>Fish with you and Hana onlyOne on one bonding time!
>>1182229>Sure. Let’s all go later tonightNight fishing is rad
>>1182229>>Sure. Let’s all go
>>1182229>Fish with you and Hana onlyTime to hang out with Hana some more.
>>1182256Oh yeah, I forgot. In that case, I'll change my vote to going with Hana alone, then having everyone hang out at camp tonight.You know what we're long overdue for? Lewd truth or dare.
>>1182268so true, we need to get everyone in on that
>>1182229>Sure. Let's all go.
>>1182229>Let’s go later tonight.
>>1182229>Fish with you and Hana onlyBeing honest, I like seeing how Hana acts without others around.
>>1182268Backing the lewd truth or darebut maintaining my vote >>1182274
Reminder that Chinchou like coming out at night, IIRC.
>>1182268didn't Val say her yacht has a hot tub?hot tub ToD or jungle clearing ToD? Both sound good, but there can be some cool things that arise from the clearing
>>1182286Oh shit lads.>>1182229Adding >Let’s go later tonightto >>1182239
>>1182299Oh, good call. Yacht hot tub. It's more comfy in general, and there's less chance of someone walking in on us.
>>1182229>Fish with you and Hana only>Let’s go later tonight.chinchou & lewd truth or dare
>>1182299Yacht for sure, hot tubs are made for lewds
I just want to say you anons are top tier, lewd truth or dare is a gobblequest tradition.
>>1182386>Happened twice at most>TraditionIf we don't go night fishing for that goddamn thing my head is going to explode.
>>1182336>there's less chance of someone walking in on usThis is a smart play. plus keira would be able to relax more with no priest or other prying eyes nearby>>1182229Also, Go Laki! Herb should be taking notes
>>1182400Someone has got to point this out. We can't try fishing for it during the day.
>>1182400Hey now, we should be doing both. S'all good man
>>1182400I heard that REEEEE-ing frogs are calmed when you flip them over and rub their bellies.Would you like me to rub your belly, Anon?A. YesB. No
>>1182448>We will never have a Politoad with anger issues that is soothed by belly rubs
>>1182448can you hear the people reee, singing the song of nazi frogs
>>1182458This is the anthem of/the people who/are really fucking dumb
>>1182458It is the music of the neckbeardswho will not be shaved again
>>1182483heh, I honestly thought the song was funny.
>>1182485>You entered "AAAAAAAAAAAAASFGSHJDTEDJSHSEHDGKJSDHGLH">Selected: A. Yes>Your belly is quietly and lovingly rubbed
>>1182496I was just continuing the melody.
“Sure, let’s all go! A threesome of fishers. The more rods dipped in, the more likely we'll get a big one!”“John!” The fire priest yells out to you. “Young John. Don’t leave yet!”Uh oh. Are you in trouble?“Your TM. I thought we’d have more challengers today.” He huffs. “Here you go.”“Thanks! What is it?”“Sunny Day! It works by...”You smile politely as he explains. You don’t want to be ungrateful. You hate your luck, though. When he finishes explaining, he looks at you and your friends. “Priestess Keira. I forgot to mention. My mother passed away yesterday. She’s being prepared now, but I wanted your thoughts on what to send with her.” He holds out two items.Did he just say his mom died?“Those both meant a lot to her, and to you. I can tell.” She examines them. A comb, and a small locket. “They’re small. Why not send both? Attach them together well, though.”“Very wise. I will. Thank you.” He bows and leaves.You look to Val. She’s as surprised as you are. “Enjoy fishing.” Laki says, getting really close to Jane. “We’ll meet you later tonight at the docks. Come on, there’s a stream we can wash your hair in. It’s down a ways.” She grabs Valerie’s hand.“Stay out of trouble!” Keira waves as they leave.The three of you start walking, too.>Go down to the docks and fish there>You heard Chinchou can walk on land. Maybe you can prepare some bait and lure them onto the beach>Let’s try going out a bit into the deeper water and fish from there>Ask Hana about the dead mother thing.>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.>Don’t ask anything. You don’t want to embarrass yourself with your ignorance.>Something else.
>>1182548>>Let’s try going out a bit into the deeper water and fish from there
>>1182548>Go down to the docks and fish there>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.He who asks a question is a fool for a moment, he who stays silent is a fool forever.
>>1182548>You heard Chinchou can walk on land. Maybe you can prepare some bait and lure them onto the beach>Let’s try going out a bit into the deeper water and fish from there
>>1182548>You heard Chinchou can walk on land. Maybe you can prepare some bait and lure them onto the beachIf we can find out what electric types like this has the least chance of getting us something we don't want.
>>1182509>>1182548>Let’s try going out a bit into the deeper water and fish from there>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.
>>1182548Gobble if you don't want us to get Laki you can just say so.
>>1182548>Let’s try going out a bit into the deeper water and fish from there>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.
>>1182548>Go down to the docks and fish there>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.
>>1182548>Go down to the docks and fish thereApparently Laki is going for itAnd wait, was Jane still here? and spending time with Laki?
>>1182548>>You heard Chinchou can walk on land. Maybe you can prepare some bait and lure them onto the beach>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.So now I'm wondering about the priesthood. They become priests at a very young age, as shown by Keira and the guy at the electric temple. Just how early do they start?
>>1182548“Enjoy fishing.” Laki says, getting really close to Jane. “We’ll meet you later tonight at the docks. Come on, there’s a stream we can wash your hair in. It’s down a ways.” She grabs Valerie’s hand.>Close to Jane>Grabs Val's handLaki is super greedy, guys. 2 chicks! We're not even sure if we want that ourselves, and we're a dude!
>>1182562That frog is fantastic. I yearn for a life as chill as his.
>>1182567Laki said she was gonna hook up with Val at one point or another.
>>1182548>>You heard Chinchou can walk on land. Maybe you can prepare some bait and lure them onto the beach
>>1182548>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.There's something going on with these islands, clearly.My vote is on them utilizing some form of necromancy to keep people around temporarily before putting them in the pit. Which, you know. We'll have to make a moral ruling on eventually.
>>1182548>Laki says, getting really close to Jane.Am I missing something here, or should this say "to Valerie"?Or is Laki taunting Jane somehow?
>>1182599reeee waifu favoritism gobble is shilling for hana who is robin 2 electric boogaloo
>>1182555Hana can't swim cause of her cybernetics. One rogue wave and the waifu war loses a contender unless we get to see her decked out in water wings, which I am totally for
>>1182595I have more frog frog pictures than I thought.>>1182599Laki said she was going to claim Val's body but does not feel romantically inclined towards her.I'm sure we could 'get with' Laki by clumsily pawing at her breasts but most everyone is against that, it seems.
>>1182548>You heard Chinchou can walk on land. Maybe you can prepare some bait and lure them onto the beach>Ask Keira about the dead mother thing.
>>1182608>inb4 Hana is a heavy dom
>>1176083[>Not liking filk>Even possiblePick one. Also, thanks! Have my absolute lewdist picture.]
>>1182603jesus man, I think it's just like putting stuff a person loved in their coffin.Or in the bandages of their mummy that gets thrown into the volcano
>>1182620Thats basically what i was referring to but couldnt remember the wording. And no worries anon, we will climb the top of the mountain in all due time. she did kind of claim us last thread didnt she? Her 'Soft Hands' i think she referred to us as
>>1182632Disgusting, impure, my virgin eyes!
>>1182632Jesus Gobble, put it away! This is a family-friendly board!Do you think Val or Hana would be more awkward about hand-holding in public?
>>1182592>>1182585>>1182604[Fuck. I meant Valerie. Sorry.
>>1182548>>Let’s try going out a bit into the deeper water and fish from thereI hope Val is alright. Laki was pretty adamant about her last time she talked about Val.
>>1182663s'all good GobbleCan we get deets from Laki the next time she makes us give her a rub down?[/spoilers]
>>1182674I'm going to bet we get a call sometime tonight where Val asks us on advice for dealing with a sexually aggressive Laki. Or she calls Hana, but we get called in by her to offer our opinion.
>>1182653[Depends which hand.]
>>1182674>>1182693Honestly, I'm 100% expecting Val to wind up being really uncomfortable with how Laki acts around her. Doesn't seem like her cup if tea.
>>1182719She was only halfheartedly refusing a threesome back at the Pokemon center when we were going on about sticky situations and cooking. Laki seems to think her odds are good.
>>1182747She may have gotten colder feet now that she's had time to think on it. Might not last if she spends a lot of time around Laki, though.
>>1182719>>1182747>>1182765Nightmare Mode: She does the do with Laki to try and be more daring. Regrets it immediately, but is too afraid to stop in the middle of it.
>>1182779Presumably things would just get awkward really quickly, Laki might get indignant, and then Val would apologize and vanish. Don't see that being too nightmarish.
>>1182779Laki would stop when Val started crying.
>>1182779That's kind of sad. I'm not opposed to that angle, but it would be sad.
>>1182821That is why it is the nightmare.
“Let’s try from the beach.”“Good idea!”You all head to the beach. Bella and Totodile are out walking, but you put Gobble and Mace in their balls for now. They could do the walk, but they earned a break.“Keira. I had some questions about the Fire Priest and his mom.”She perks her head up.“He seemed really calm about it. And why did he have the items, What do you do with your dead?”“We send them to the other world.” She seems confused you’d even have to ask. She explains about it. You remember some of this, but she goes way into detail. Death is just the next step. Lots of people do get sad, and that’s natural, but she heard his mother was in poor health, and as a member of the clergy he’s probably more prepared than most, even if he’s not in the Ghost caste. They all have their roles, but they also have a tight knit bit of commonalities and all work together.“It’s like baseball.” Hana says. “Everyone has a different role, but everyone plays for the same team.”“Like the ball of bases! Yes!”“So, the items, those go with her?”“Yes! The items are more symbolic than anything, but it’s still important to do. Auras come from all of us, and they...umm...what’s a good word...paint, everything you touch. The more emotion you have with it, the more it stays. Sending something that was important in this life life gives comfort in the next. I’ve prepared a lot of bodies and talked to a lot of families when someone passes.” Keira says, like it’s no big deal that a young girl works with dead bodies.You knew some of that, but you guess now that you know Keira a lot better, it seems weird for some reason.“What did you do when your grandpa passed?” Keira isn’t sure if she should ask. She looks prepared to start apologizing if this is a sensitive subject. "He wasn't left where he died, was he?"Oh. Grandpa. You miss him now. You know Keira is just curious, but that sounded a little insulting and insensitive.>He was cremated. His ashes are at home.>He was buried in a cemetery.>His body was donated to science.>Let’s change the subject.
>>1182869>His body was donated to science.probably an organ donor too.
>>1182869>>He was cremated. His ashes are at home.
>>1182869>His body was donated to scienceI want to imagine Herb's grandpa was a pretty weird dude. This fits that view.
>>1182869>>His body was donated to science.
>>1182869>>His body was donated to science.Science saved grandpa once so he wanted to help science
>>1182869>His body was donated to science.He sounds like a guy that lived his life to help others so far. That is the final thing a person can do.
>>1182869>He was buried in a cemetery.
>>1182869>>1182877Sounds about right. Supporting.
>>1182869>>He was cremated. His ashes are at home.But he was an organ donor
>>1182869>His body was donated to science.not sure why that sounds right
>>1182869>He was cremated. His ashes are at home.[obligatory cooking joke]
>>1182869>His body was donated to science.I could totally see Herb's Grandpa undergoing Plastination.
>>1182869>He was cremated. His ashes are at home.
>>1182869>He was mummified and placed in his pyramid
>>1182869>His body was donated to science.>Let’s change the subject.
>>1182869>in this life life
>>1182916That is both cool and incredibly unnerving.
>>1183019[Is this new?]
“He was an organ donor, and when that was done, his body was left to a university for students to use.”Hana cringes and looks concerned about what Keira will say.“To...use?”“Yeah. For research and practice for the students. He had a unique bone spur on his ankle too, so he wanted them to make sure to study that since the doctors couldn’t figure it out when he was alive.” You’re still proud of him for that. It used to bother him a lot, even if he pretended like it didn’t. But his last act was to try to make it into something positive for medical students.“Oh...okay.” Keira holds onto a tree to steady herself. “Okay.”“Are you alright?”She gives a fake smile. “Yup! I’m sure his spirit is completely fine, being tethered to concerns of the mortal world like that. That’s...totally fine.” She’s really straining not to say anything. You appreciate the effort, but it’s still a little alienating to see how much she disapproves. Grandpa’s last gesture meant a lot to you. He was always looking to help people out in any way that he could.You decide to drop it for now. She probably just needs some time to wrap her head around it. You were surprised at how casual the Fire Priest was about his mom, after all.You arrive at the beach. Hana looks incredibly relieved to point it out, and the weather, and the wind, and the ocean, and anything that’s a different subject.“I can’t eat it, and it’s not my place to end it, but I’ll help with catching.” Keira says about any fish you might cook. “Remember to bring me anything you don’t end up eating.”Well, you’re hoping for Chinchou, so you’ll worry about fish if that happens. Now. Let’s see. What would make good bait?>Make a lot of easy food to cover a wide area>Work on one exquisite, small basted appetizer. Really focus on making it perfect>Go pick up some bait from the fishing hut down the way.>Lay out the berries you got earlier. All pokemon like berries>Something else
>>1183056>Go pick up some bait from the fishing hut down the way.We could also ask what certain Pokemon like if the person working there is knowledgeable
>>1183056>Lay out the berries you got earlier. All pokemon like berries
>>1183056>>Go pick up some bait from the fishing hut down the way.see if they have any bait or tips for Chinchou

So was this Herb's paternal or maternal Grandfather? From what's been given to us it seems like Paternal, I just want to be sure.
You go pick up some bait from the fishing hut down the way. Hana insists on paying, and gets two massive buckets.“Think this’ll be enough?” Hana lifts the one with her good arm with ease. The other, not so much.“You fishing for Wailmers?” The fisherman running the hut jokes. “It’s enough. Even my luck with fishing isn’t bad enough that I’d need a whole bucket, let alone two.”“We’re fishing for Chinchou.” You tell him.“Ah, those crafty little ones. Most fishermen avoid them. No pearls or anything. You might get a Deep Sea Scale, but it’s usually a lot of work and tall hair. They have a good price for a reason, y’know.”“That’s okay. I just want to catch one.” Hana tells him.“Oh! Well in that case, you might get lucky. As lucky as pulling in an angry, electrified pokemon is, anyway. But they come out more at night, dontcha know. Who taught you to fish?”“Aisake, on the other island.” You answer literally.“That hack? He couldn’t catch a drop of water if he fell into the sea. I should know. I’m just brother.” He grabs your rod. “No no no. This won’t do at all. Kid. What you need is a better rod. I’ve got just the thing, too, if you’re willing to pay.”He gestures to a very advanced looking fishing rod. You flip over the price tag to read it. Oh wow. That’s everything you have.>Sure. You’ll buy it.>Can you work it off somehow?>You’ll be fine. Thanks.>Something else
>>1183206>Can you work it off somehow?

>>1183206>Sure. You’ll buy it.>Can you work it off somehow?Remember in the last quest where we just kept not voteing Gobbles plot hooks good times.
>>1183231Gobble won't let us get crazy rich at a casino again.
>>1183206>Can you work it off somehow?Or rent it? Places like this let you rent rods, right?

>>1183206>You'll be fine. Thanks.Assuming this isn't a scam, are we really going to use the rod enough to justify this expenditure?

“Can we rent it?”Keira catches up and listens to whatever it is you’re talking about.“You can rent plenty of rods here, but this isn’t that type.”“How about working it off somehow?” People always talk about trainers taking odd jobs. You aren’t used to asking that sort of thing, but you still feel a bit fired up from before. “I can cook.”“Herb, it’s okay.” Hana tells you,“Cook? Psh. What do I need a cook for? My wife hates cookin’ and bringing her home something to fry up is the only thing that makes it worth choking down.”You’re not sure if he’s joking.“But I can use some help with a few things. Tell you what. I’ll make up a list, and you do everything on it, and do it well, you can keep the rod.”“Oh. Is there any chance I can use the rod as I work it off?”“Feel my beard.”You hesitate.“Come on. Feel it. Reach out and touch it.”You slowly reach out, then touch his beard. After a second he slaps your hand away. “I said feel it, not feel it up. Buy it dinner next time you go that far. Now, does that beard feel like a baby’s?”“N...no?”“Then I wasn’t born yesterday, now was I! If I let you walk out of here with that thing. I ain’t ever gonna see you again.”Keira, despite giggling, steps forward and assures him that on her word as a priestess, you won’t rip him off. He looks a little unsure, still, but he goes with it.“Alright. Come back later. I’ve got to add a few things to my list if we’re doing it that way.”With the new rod, the bait, and the beach to yourselves, you get to work. You set the bait out a bit inland, then stand off a bit and fish. There’s room for Pokemon to come onto land if they want and you’re far enough away to fish and not scare them off.You let your pokemon relax. Everyone except Bella is tired, but the calm air keeps her from getting into too much trouble on her own. Keira helps a lot with keeping an eye on things, too.You’re standing on the beach with your bare feet. Hana is letting her shoes and pant legs get soaked. She seems like she’s having a good time and you’re talking a lot, but you still wish she’d relax a little more.It takes awhile, almost until dusk,, but you get a decent haul. Hana is surprisingly good at the cleaning part. Keira gives them all a short blessing. You feel a bit uncomfortable being reminded that fish are living things, but you guess that’s part of the symbolism behind the gesture. They’re not like Pokemon, though.On that note, get a tug. You start pulling it in. Back, back, come on...(continued)
>>1183366Yes!Oh. That’s different. It’s a Seel. And after reeling it in, you see a few more follow.They start advancing and sniffing, getting closer to the bait.You look to Hana. She has no idea what to do.They mostly seem like they’re not hostile, but the one you caught is looking a bit angry. A sudden move might provoke it>Feed them. There’s plenty for everyone.>Shoo them away.>Fight the one you caught. Bella, go!>Something else.
>>1183373>Leave some food and slowly relocate
>>1183373>Shoo them away.If it attacks>Fight the one you caught. Bella, go!
>>1183373>>Feed them. There’s plenty for everyone.Plenty of fish, and no one is really in shape for much fighting anyway.
>>1183373>Feed them. There's plenty for everyone
>>1183373>>Feed them. There’s plenty for everyone.
>>1183373>Feed them. There’s plenty for everyone.
Just a reminder that Hana paid for the bait not us
>>1183373>>1183403Shiet>Leave some food and slowly relocate
>>1183373>>1183403>Leave some food and slowly relocate
>>1183403But we've already caught fish, this is a couple hours after buying said bait. She's already been gutting them.
“Is it okay to feed them?”Hana looks around. She thinks for a second, but when her gaze catches the big round eyes of a Seel that approaches, she melts. “It’s not okay. It’s a must.”She goes to the bucket and tosses some out. The pokemon are confused at first and leap away, but their hunger overtakes them and they start going for it. She tries to get them in closer. A few even eat out of her hand.Keira leaps up from watching and grabs some bait. She sneaks up on Hana, deftly pulls back the opening of the pocket on the back of her pants, and looks like she’s going to put some bait in. But she changes her mind and stops herself.Hana turns around and is surprised to see Keira. Keira offers bait to the approaching Seel on her right, and they both laugh together.Belladonna climbs up your back and hands behind your head. She points at the scheming Seels any time they get close to make sure you’re aware of them. She isn’t picking a fight, but she wants to be by you if something breaks out, despite the current happy mood.You feed one Seel, then the next, then the-“Gobble!”He licks the food from your hand and flops away like one of them. Well, you guess he earned it. You just hope its not bad for him to eat.“Chinchou!” Hana proclaims! She jumps and points. You notice how high she gets on that first excited hop, and how deep into the sand she lands.It approaches behind the Seels. You guess it was seeing how things would play out. They give it a wide berth, but still keep jockeying around for more bait.Hana tosses some bait to the Chinchou. It sniffs it, takes a cautionary bite, but looks disinterested.>Season some bait for it and give it to her>Quickly cut off its escape while it’s distracted, let her do the rest>You could guaranteed a Stun Spore with Bella while it’s distracted. That’d help>Try to lure the Seels over and stay out of it>Something else
