z( owo) Hello everyone! Did you miss me? You are glum.Okay that's not really your name, your name's Gurie, but it SHOULD be Glum, Glumrie that's you right now.You are a normal girl with a... well a small social issue you will admit, but your moms getting a bit carried away here.SURE you did get tied up with that Sons of Az affair on the Unova border, and yeah if you had to put a binary on "legendary pokemon robbing" those cultists were closer to a yes then a no.HOWEVER having you and Sebastian MOVE REGIONS to hide is a bit extreme! It totally interrupted your big pokemon quest.And you were so close to, you had one badge. ONE WHOLE BADGE. And you worked hard on that!Now you have to start all over, in a whole new region.You peer out the window, four islands staring back at you, the water around it bright white with the frothing whirlpools surronding the islands.Here you are, in Johto.You hug your doll Suzie, pouting, you didn't even get to bring your whole team, international law dictates you can only bring one pokemon to each new region, at least initially until you can get the approval of 3 gym leaders.Fortunately Mimikyu managed to cajole the authorities into thinking hes just a service pokemon so he no longer counts to your six, or your one limit. And your two other friends... well fortunately no one even realized they were there, you don't know how well trying to seperate you two would go, for different reasons.But that left you with only one REAL pokemon, the one you are allowed to use on the tournament... which is...>Planny, your Kirlia, a diligiant swordswoman and your first pokemon>Bedbug, your Beedrill, very close to being your first, very sleepy, very soothing.>Weiss, a alohan vulpxi, very mature and clever, kinda odd>Koshmar Your sneevil, pretty violent, your really close to him>Tok, your joltik, very... mercucial>Reginald: your hoothoot, saved your life, may only be here out of politeness>googoo: Your goomy, believes in himself>Liu: A Zorua, loves art.>Piper: A pumpkaboo, idiot
>>3888436>Weiss Well shit Mimikyu I haven't seen you in years. Mostly because I didn't quest until recently and the last time I saw you was on tg, but damn it's good to see you again. How you been?
>>3888436>ReginaldMore original than Sneasel while also being a Johto mon.
>>3888436>Bedbug, your Beedrill, very close to being your first, very sleepy, very soothing.It's great to see you back!
>>3888436>Koshmar Your sneevil, pretty violent, your really close to him
We are doing a reboot, thats what they do in hollywoodAnd everybody knows that the reboots never quite as good.WE THOUGHT IT WAS THE END BUT NO MY FRIENDS THIS IS WHENWE GET TO DO IT ALL AGAINThis is a reboot of HEX MANIAC QUEST. So the reason this list is so long is because you all went through this before.Im doing the reboot this way to make the hiatus WORK, so its not super confusing and requiring a deepdive of backlog without being a chore for people who played the original one and dont want to miss the high notes of the old game.https://pastebin.com/YEJkYJsa Your pokemon list https://pastebin.com/5v1MZTUg The thread list
>>3888474Also for the record in case of tie i just go with MY favorite.Which is bedbug cause hes the cutestLook at him.Though frankly i think you should pick Planny.
>>3888436>Planny, your Kirlia, a diligiant swordswoman and your first pokemon
>>3888436>>Reginald: your hoothoot, saved your life, may only be here out of politeness
>>3888436>Planny, your Kirlia, a diligiant swordswoman and your first pokemonBoy, it's been a while since I've seen this.
Poor reginald, he was sooo close too. Aw well, writing.
>>3888544So long, sweet prince. Your time in the moonlight will come.
You sigh, Planny trilling sadly next to you.You miss the others, granted Planny was your first and always sort of your rock, but frankly its not the same with the whole crew. You never even really got to know Reginald or Liu, or Googoo.In fact frankly, you arent sure anyone knew anything about googoo. You hope they get along at home. Your mom can be a bit... overbearing.The ship continues its voyage, as you sit alone, Sebastian was sent to boarding school in some place called... Galar?Wow that sounds incredibly disappointing. You hope he has fun there, but it sounds like it will be hard for anyone to enjoy someplace like that.You sit there, playing with your needles and thread until the creaking groan of the boat ruins a perfectly good bowtie you were working on, slowly the ship shudders to a halt and feel a motion you didn't even conciously notice suddenly halt.There is a blar on the intercom."Attention all *urp* passengers. We are unfortunately hitting a bit of a *belch* weather issue. Please... *Heave* remain indoors until the issue has settled."You look outside, noticing the sudden, and ENTIRELY spontanous rain clouds forming above. You've been ignoring the rocking waves but they are hitting this ship hard, with the rest of the ships motion halted you can actually feel the disoriented sway of the boat.But you were looking outside to a sunny day just moments ago hell the captain owns a Bellossom FOR That... something is off.>WELP thats a captain problem. Stay indoors, write a message for your friends, flashback, wait it out. Susie will keep you company.>Have your shadow check on it, your a psychic and you know a guy.>FINE GO CHECK ON IT YOU GUESS>Go explore the rest of the ship while its stalled, the captains apperantly descended from a line of swordsmen, he may be fun to talk to. Plus the buffets good.
>>3888558>Have your shadow check on it, your a psychic and you know a guy.
>>3888558>>Have your shadow check on it, your a psychic and you know a guy.
You sigh, feeling the sudden storm cause your left leg to ache. Something is wrong, your leg only acts up when weird stuff happens, which makes sense, since that's the foot that's in the grave.Fortunately however, there are some perks to that, you lift your silk spun cane and tap it, the shadow under you stretching in front of you until its face splits into a white smile."Well... Master?" Giratina, the cursed god of hopelessness says, a light mocking tone to his voice as he enjoys the novelty of the situation. "What do you need from me.""We stopped, please find out why." You ask as the shadow solidfies itself into the grey trenchcoat ghoul form he was so found of."Rather benign." The god says as he stretched limbs centuries of imprisonment sealed away. "You sure you don't want anything more, I can always smuggle you back to Kalos through the distorted world.""...No that sounds..." You search for a word. "Easy? I'm supposed to be struggling, I can't grow out of relying on my mom by relying on you.""Mature." The god said, walking through the door, not bothering to open it.You sit there awhile, waiting with Planny and Mimikyu."So..." Mimikyu says. "Whats the plan when we get there. I heard Fly G's Concert ring is still around. Hey I even heard there is this big carnival area, some Frontier place. And a really nice safari."Well...>This place has some of the strongest ties to psychic power, you can learn a lot about controlling and mastering your power at some of the places monastaries>You could set up a new fashion line here! Goldenrods a massive metropolis, not as big as some of the cities in Kalos and Unova, but its tied more to its soul. And the fashion industry here is less tapped.>Catching more pokemon, why not>The gyms of course, your going to be the best and show that stupid Claire lady whose the best, then your going to beat the kalos league... maybe.>That carnival sounds fun
>>3888591>You could set up a new fashion line here! Goldenrods a massive metropolis, not as big as some of the cities in Kalos and Unova, but its tied more to its soul. And the fashion industry here is less tapped.
We will continue tommorrow with your big fashion quest.
>>3888616Oh i dont know if you two are new so im going to give a recap.HEX MANIAC QUEST was a story about a talking mimikyu and his best friend Gurie.Gurie is a chronically shy Hex Maniac, made a bit before Komi-san really took off, she was 20 before going on her adventure and her little brother kicked her out in order for her to learn how to live outside.This fear of going outside is because of a failed kidnapping she was the victim of. OR to be more accurate, the kidnappers succeeded but failed to account for the fact that Gurie's doll Suzie is haunted with a Bannette. A level 65 Bannette, who has so far canonically killed 3 people.That's pokemon for you!So that trauma aside Gurie spent most of her time learning fashion, and in fact is someone called Mysterious G, who owns the G line that is mostly known for having became the iconic threads of Team Skull. Despite your apperance your tastes are very Street Punk, you just dont have the courage to pull it off yourself.In fact you are so cowardly that you once scared yourself half to death and trapped your soul in the Distorted World. You manged to drag yourself out of there by dragging its only other occupant, the Despair god Giratina with you.Hes actually pretty nice, hes just... scary, but your rival at the time Debbie was way worse.You managed to beat Violia with your service pokemon Planny, who is bizarrely powerful. You found out your a very powerful "Ghost Psychic" and that each type of pokemon has their own "psychic" aka a person who can use those powers.As part of this you were given a Insect plate, and you found out that mystical items like that are powerful enough to work as Mega jewelry or do z moves, or any other gimmicky power. While the plate doesnt seem part pivotal to some evil plot you have been entrusted with a very powerful tool that you need to keep on hand.You were also embroiled in what looked to be a 3 sided gang war, which was suddenly halted when your Mom, a hardliner cop, kicked you out of Kalos and sent you on a boat.I can answer questions but this is the cliff notes you need for everything to make sense.Finally of note is that bits of the anime and the games are all true. This takes roughly... 4 years after XY in the games, and say 50 or so years after things that were anime ish.Following the remake trends set with Emerald. bw2 and Hex prior, the old champ in Johto retired and the eight gym leader took his place. In addition 3 or so other gymleaders are changed.
Street punk style VS Traditional wear! The battle of ages!Can't wate till we meet a traditionalist fashon rival. We can duke it out by proxy as if I remember corectly Johto had a tougher contest scene than Hoen acording to May so likely top cordinators put in that bit extra effort here meaning good cash for groomers and designers plus brand rep if they can catch the eye of one.
Good to have you back
>>3888622So are you guys planning on getting a rivalry... with Jasmine?
"Well hopefully we can expand Alluring G's line, Goldenrod's got a massive department store, this place is close to Kanto, so long as I play my cards right I can double my business." You say to Mimikyu as he rubs his fake head confused."But Gurie, I thought you were using a alias for Alluring G, you didn't want people to know you owned it." Mimikyu says as you look out towards the stormy sea."I... I just didn't want to DEAL with people. Sure the mystery designer angle was cute but that was a excuse. And I can't keep using it forever." You look up, with Planny patting your leg reassuringly."I hate to interrupt, but I found the problem." Giratina said popping his head in. "We are under attack by pirates."You blink "P-pirates?"The god nods. "Pokepirates."H-huh?>Well what are we waiting for? Fight the pirates>Well shit we gotta hide.>Write in
>>3889164>Well what are we waiting for? Fight the pirates

>>3889164I miss our boi Maximillion T. Armstrong. Is there any chance that you could pick it up and resume the quest?
Sorry so i have a bad phone thing and you cant use phones to post on 4chan. Im free now so writing>>3890354Maybe if theres a audience for it.
You decide that, if this is going to be a pirate battle that's crime.Mysterious G does not trucker that crime shit. Not at all...Though you dont have your costume... well, take a deep breathe.You got this, youve been through worse.You slowly shamble towards the top of the deck, Planny walking next to you, leek on her back and her special toy sword in her hand.You open the door and see a rather large battle, a Dewott facing down against a large dark green anchor floating in the center of the boat.You look up at the captain, a slightly unkempt lanky fellow with wild sallow eyes. He rubs his nose as one lazy eye turns and glares at you."Who da ell is dis?" The captain mutters.UrpWrite a responseand roll a d100 social roll.

You glare at the pirate. The pirate glares back. You look down? Hands bunched up on your staff."H-hey um... Don't do bad things like pirating... I dont want to have to stop you."The captain guffaws. "Ketatata ya a little lily in the liver to truffle with Captain Soul Silver!" The man points a gloved hand at you. " Shanks! Introduce to the lass propa procedure for a showdown."A colorful grunt steps in your way, heavy ball in hand. "Alright runt settle for this." He toss the ball in the ocean. "Go wailord!"The bloat rocks as a large blue mountian looks down on you. A small bellow echoing from beast.Planny walks forward, blade pointed forward. Its a combat!>prep with double team and teleport>get in the beasts back and slash with night blade>HEY DONT CAPSIZE THE BOAT

"Alright planny like before." You say as Planny starts teleporting and creating clones, the air starting to be covered with a erratic swarm of swordmasters.However the pirate seems rather confidant despite this. "Ha, thats a waste. Gigiathan, use bubble.""Waaaail." The wailord almost yawns as it opens its cavernous maw, bubbles rising forth like a throthy foam that washes the ship.You hold on, your rigorus training with your mother keeping you stable as the others brace against the massive tidel wave.Its not too painful, since its just bubbles but whatever quality was lacking was more then made up for in the sheer unyielding quanity, the sky goes white under the wave of foam."Kriiiiii." Planny cries as shes knocked to the floor, all her doubles popped under the wailords attack. It seems its sheer hugeness has caused its range to outdo any tricks.Well shit.>Okay then just beat down on it.>Try to use confusion to weaken and daze the behemoth.>Try to use the other fight to your advantage, make a break for the Dhelmise and help the Dewott, have the two pirates hit each other, etc.

"Planny fall back and use Confusion." You yell as the boat rocks under the giant's attacks.Your kirlia nods as she stands still, blade over her face as she meditates."Raaaaaaaa." Your swordmaster hums as the whale groans, the bubble's ceasing as it closes its mouth.... while its bubbles still being spewed."GUWOOOOO!" The creature cried as the roof of its own mouth was hit by its own attack, the beast tottering in confusion. "Buwoooooo" Gigaithan says as it starts to sink.... Wait it's not sinking, it's using dive.Uh oh.>Kirlia go after it, you cant have it hit this boat.>Use your psychic power to protect the boat.>Make the pirate call it off.>Ask giratina for help>Have you and Kirlia move out of the way of the boat so it wont get hit>Brace yourself

You reach down, grabbing the ship. Okay your going to have to concentrate....You take a deep breath as the captain looks at you curiously. "What are you...."You focus and your palms begin to smoke as you feel your eyes roll back, the vision around you slowly turning dark as the filter of the material is flipped to the etherial. You see the chain between soul and solid and you, with the shadow giratina borrowed, reach out and...You pull, the veil of reality resisting as color fades from you, a pool of white surronding the dark blue wood. A large cloud forms around you, a dark black mist forming around the ship as the air around you grows with the tint of purple. You make a soft grunt of struggle as the veil of white spreads, the very ink of the world dripping away as steel and wood loses its very... existance.You fling your head back, hair tossling in the fell wind and staying alight as the entire boat, and all inhabitants in it and on it, uses Shadow Force.The Wailord strikes under and through the ship, the large behemoth whale opening its jaw and swallowing the ship whole... only for the ship to simply phase through the entire whale, a sea of darkness casting over you as your entire world is suffused with balloon whale meet for a few agonizing seconds. Then its over, Gigaithan crashing into the water empty bellied and as shocked as everyone else on the ship.You pull the ships essence back from the distorted world, color and reality righting itself back on the SS Anne with the force and fury of a dark thunderbolt.There is a loud crash as the energy of the attack gets sent flying, crashing into a nearby rock and cutting three gashes into it, turning a cliff face into a glasgow smile.The roar of thunder still echos in your ear as you pant, exhausted as everyone stares at you.>What... aren't we fighting?>Please surrender>WRite in something cool
A bit unnecessary but lets roll intimidation to see if you can get any biggo funno points.

Huh. Well okay.
"Please... Surrender." You say panting, you aren't going to lie, that took a LOT out of you. Hell you don't think you heard anyone DO something like this before.The pirate captain gives you a glaring look. "That was very impressive lady... But you don't look like you got it in you to do that again." The man reaches towards his belt, before a flash of silver rests on his neck.The captain grins, his sword pressed against the neck of the pirate captain. "Sorry buddy, this is Captain Cut's ship and far as I'm concerned, trying to sink our ship has violated the realm of good manners. I am going to have to ask you to heed the little lady, or things will get rather messy.Captain Silvers sighs and raises his hands. "This isn't over, enjoy your cruise little lady." The man looks you dead in the eye. "Cause I won't forget a lady like you any time soon. Rogers, get us out of here."The Dhelmise makes a groan as he, the captain, and the pirate vanish, 3 small dots appearing on the wailord as it swims back to whirl island."Well that's not a conventional end to a pokemon battle." Cut says as he seathes his weapon. "Thank you a lot. Captain Alex Cut, captain of the SS Anne and the Cutmaster. I owe you one Ma'am, anything I can do for you?""Kiiii..." It seems Plannys a bit starstruck by the swordmaster.>Can you upgrade my ticket?>When will we dock?>Nothing, thank you>Some write in im not sure what youd want
>>3897343>I don't need anything, but I think Planny would like to see you do some sword moves. Planny is my friend over there, she wants to be a great swordswoman.
>>3897343>Show Planny some of your moves.
"Oh no I'm fine." You say as you pick up your cane and hoist yourself up. "So your the fabled cut master? I think Planny is a fan.""Kiiir." The pokemon nods, looking almost like the same starstruck Ralts you knew so long ago. "Huh, glad we still have pokemon interested in swordsmanship." The dude says rubbing the back of his neck. "I dont get much time off to do mind the craft anymore, what with my elite four duties."You tilt your head. "Elite four?""Yup, third string member of the Elite Four, took forever but Bruno finally retired. Shame too, since he practically founded the league with Lance but when the dragon master died he just wasn't the same. Lost the sheen on the blade.">Wait... Lance died?>Huh that's cool, my Cousin's a gym leader ya know.>I Think Plannys more interested in the swordmastery then your trainer skills>Wait if your a elite four member why were you using a dewott, shouldn't that pirate guy have lost by now.
>>3897497>I Think Plannys more interested in the swordmastery then your trainer skills>Wait... Lance died?
>>3897497>I Think Plannys more interested in the swordmastery then your trainer skills
>>3897497>>I Think Plannys more interested in the swordmastery then your trainer skills>>Wait... Lance died?
"Wait... LANCE?" You blink shocked. Sure there are many champions, but there has always been a difference between the ones who won a tournament one year (Heck even your mother has done that) and the ones who run the local leagues. That's reserved for the best of the best, Alder, Cynthia, Steven Stone, and even among that sacred few Lance was special.He was the inventor of the Draco Meteor move, he faced the legendary Golden Tamer, heck he was the one who designed the first Victory Road. For many people Lance WAS the Champion, short of Red himself. And to be honest, you don't really think Red counts, I mean he immediately retired."Not like... retired, but dead?" You repeat as the captain grimly nods."Yeah. One day he went out to Mt Silver, only his Aerodactyl came back, cape in his claw and everything. Indigos shut the whole place down as they try to figure out what was there. Hell Bruno is still there just guarding the entrance. Whatever is in there, its bad news.""Ra!" Planny says impatient as you look down."Oh. I'm sorry. Planny seems to really want to study those sword moves." You pat your Kirlia on her head, the swordswoman leaning into your hand."Alright." Cut says, hefting his sword and checking his belt. "I suppose I have the time... watch closely."You sit back and watch the two swordsman go over swings and techniques as the docks slowly loom closer.It takes a few more hours but soon you port, your here now, in Olivine City.Your Johto Journey has now begun>END THREADWell there we go, i wanted a bit more but we started saging. We will pick this up later.
