You sit at the assembly hall, nervously fidgeting in your chair. The school splurges on a lot, but comfort? Not so much. Despite the massive size of the atrium, the dark blue candle light floating, (literally floating, the Janitor has trained litwicks to work as the lighting in the school) the chairs YOU are sitting in is the same folded metal chair you've seen everywhere else... not that you've seen much.Granted even if the chair WAS plush and pristine you are PRETTY confident that you would be uncomfortable about now.The Principal walks up to the podium, a old woman with a lantern dangling from her walker and a glistening gold tooth. Its slow go for the lady, shes ten times your age and only 3 inches taller. But eventually she manages, withered hands gripping the podium as she pulls herself to the microphone."Erm.... hello dearies. And welcome to the wonderful world of pokemon education." The woman chuckles. "Why back in my day we didn't even have pokemon schools, you just had pokemon or school and by gum you were gonna have to pick one. Can you guess which one I picked? Eh?" She waited for people to laugh...but no one did."Er, yes well. Pokemon are our friends, Pokemon are our source of entertainment, power, sometimes we even use them to light up a room ehehe-... erm." She coughs. "Yes, well, I suppose you all already passed the entrance exam yes? Don't need me to go over the basics..." She fiddles in her sleeve and pulls out... well you cant make it out, but given the way she throws it, it has to be a pokemon ball. The Runerigus roars, its ghostly formed hidden under brightly painted rocks. "But ya see, if everyone can do it then, then it takes a special kind to be special ya know? You aren't at school cause you can just run up to 8 gym leaders and be the very best lickety split. Your in Rose's Academy for the Apologetic! We do the hard stuff. We build the towers for people who never got their goodbyes, we take down dangerous pokemon who block roads. We run the security tests on the ancient seals of the Path to Legends..." She points at her pokemon. "Rosetta here has the names of every student who couldn't mustard it on him. I want you all to peep those eyeballs good and plenty on all those who'se faces you stepped on just getting this far. Cause if ya spit in their faces by half assin it up to here... Well I will have you chisel your name in yourself before those failed students drag you down to mediocre hell with em."She cackles before coughing again. "Oh um... and no pressure kiddies! We are here to have fun aren't we!"You hear the crowd applaud but your arms do not move, your blood is ice.Your name is Gurie Niamic, and you do not belong in a reformatory for criminals...

So far 3 on discriminated wizard, 2 on rich dad and 1 on absolutely deserving it!I'll give it a smidge more time.
>>5462320Gonna switch to rich dad if it's gonna be both options instead of tied.
>>5462281>>5462317This is the based option. I support this.Our dad just happens to be a crime boss whose underworld rival pinned a crime on us, and when we were arrested we were out pickpocketing with our sister and our Ghost Pokemon.
>>5462320I (>>5462301) am quite willing to be the daughter of a crime lord as long as we're also a meek goth girl who just likes ghost friends.

Frankly... this is just NOT your fault. It's your dads.Sure your dad's great, hes the best, he got you all the best toys, all the best dresses... but your dad HAPPENS to be the founder of a really big pokemon poaching ring....ALLEGEDLY! Losing a pokemon battle isn't admissible evidence of guilt in court you know! And that's why they are picking on you! The police just can't handle doing their job so they are going after defenselss children with trumped up charges of black magic.Your magic is most certainly NOT black and you would have given the police a serious talking too... but well officers scare you. And adults. So now here you are in a haunted school. Which is the least fair thing. Your magic simply moved luck around and attracted pokemon, it had nothing to do with those attacks recently, and they are going to feel really dumb when they still happen without you."Now dearies!" The Principal thumps the table. "Do me a favor... can you all walk up and touch my dear Rosetta for me? Hes going to sort you into your dorms and houses."H-houses? You mean you are going to be in a TEAM? You are NOT a team player... You are barely a player! You are just being played...You give a whimper and get a stare from the boy next to you, you stare back, he flinches first.Weird kid. Getting his peep on little children.One day... you are going to kick his ass... definitely, probably, maybe? You get into line with everyone else, and the anxiety doesn't get... better? But it's a line no ones talking not even the principal.

welcome back qm
You flip open the pamphlet, reading its bright red lettering happily spewing its authoritarian propaganda to the masses.You... may be a bit mad.Rose's Academy: Funded and sponsered by the former Chairman Rose himself as well as contributions from the Aether Foundation, the Rose's academy believes EVERYONE has a place in the world. Even you!Yeah? Well up you too paper.That is why Rose's Academy exists, to present rehabilitation in a happy, educational environment to nurture your better impulses! Here you will learn about how to use pokemon for good and more about yourself and the world! Remember the most powerful tool in the world... is friendship!You look up at the faculty of the school, their black and teal suits with glittering gold badges, they dont seem friendly.To further your friendshipal goals we have divided the class into 5 houses! Each built on the level of security clearance THAT person needs. This way the school can better cater to your needs and skillsets. Remember all houses are equal, do not feel weaker just because your in Second Chansey, or discriminated for being in Dusknoir Row!TBC (This is long okay?)
For our white collar criminals we have Second Chansey, fit for fraudsters, tax evaders, and people who lack the value of hard labor! Here in Second Chansey we will work to fulfill the emptiness of a unsatisfying career by working a love and respect of hard labor into your very bones! You will work alongside your pokemon to build roads, clean trash! Fix the messes in society YOU caused with your negligence! You owe a debt to society... but together we can pay that back with interest! They put a heart at the end.It seems like the lowest ranked houses get put into hard labor... oh you do not want to be in that house. Not that you did anything wrong so you imagine you are the lowest security... but... owie. Your lungs are already sore from hyperventilating.
Second we have the Choke Crew! For lower security inmates, our thieves and robbers and vandalizers. For those people who break things, we have a great way of teaching you the value in things. By building them back together! With our programs with various companies such as Sliph co and Devon, we will teach you cool fun ways to build new tools that will be put to use in medical equipment and in helping our pokemon community! Work making tumble alloy and even toys for charity! You may have taken things from others before but now! You can be the one to give!A bunch of thieves turned factory workers huh? Suspcious...
In the middle, for those guilty of pokemon crimes... well we have... the Ghastgangers!You may be dangerous criminals, but we can teach you how to care for others, through pokemon battles! We will show you ways to empathize with your pokemon partners, the very people you hurt with your foul deeds! Raise pokemon not just for yourself but for those less fortunate! Let your scars be the path to therapy for yourself and others! Do not let your ill gotten talents rot in iron! And as always... behave!Wait... they let the poke crooks play pokemon ranchers? It seems all the others also work with pokemon sure... but these are the breeders? The Rocket wannabes?
For those of you guilty of the most serious crimes! The Ciphers, the Galaxies, the "almost world enders", it may seem like your days are doomed, but even here we have a place for you! On Dusknoir Row!Dusknoir Row will teach you the true value of the one thing you dont respect. Life! We will do penpals! Community outreach! We will do the best to rehabilitate you and show the world you do not deserve the fate society has given you... and if that doesnt work! Well here you can say you did your best!Death Row inmates? Turned... community organizers? Theres even a bit here about a gym internship?
Lastly is the special cases! For while everyone is special, those with specially odd circumstances get to be featured in the Trick Room! Here those... uniquely talented students can put those same unique talents into good use! Those with special medical conditions, or psychic power will find a place here that is built for their needs. We will silence the voices plauging you!These... dont make sense...But by the time you wait to read all these and their weird symbols and fluffy nonsense, you are already at the steps of the atrium."Hello dearie." The Principal says, adjusting her monocle(!?) as she looks at you. You hate it when people look at you. You feel... bare."I heard you've been put in quite the odd place... well don't worry! Your case is unusual, so we can fit you in where you think you belong... Normally youd be locked in... oh bad term of phrase sorry, designated to be in Trick Room... but we can make a case for Second Chansey if you feel... on the spot." The woman smiles. "Wouldn't want to upset you first day."You look at the pamphlet.>Okay thank you (Pick a house)>I um... er... screw it, finish the ceremony and leave>Hey... something seems weird (Roll a d100 nerves check)You get the Sewing kit and strawmancy!

You hesitate frowning... Sure, she is a authority figure, someone who can probbably make or break you... but shes been nice so far. And this seems like something you should ask now."Isn't this... weird?" You mutter, looking at the hall behind you, the many students in prisoner orange milling around behind and near you."Oh?" The Principal raises a eyebrow. "Hmmm, yes I suppose that for someone in your position it would be weird to be arrested for your fathers work. So I can see where you are coming from."You shake your head. "No.... not that... this... the school?"She coughs. "Well I think its good for people to feel like... its a new begining, not rock bottom. The optimism helps dont you agree."You nod. "Yes... but that's not the weird thing." You lift the list. "You have the houses organized by security levels, and that makes sense in terms of security... but you let all the students mingle together, even with guards, so its not like we are in 5 different jails... and these classes...Aren't they rather... generous? Especially for the higher risk levels..."Your frown deepens as you squint at the pamphlet. "I mean you teach the thieves to build, the grunts how to use pokemon... and theirs a "gym challenge"? It's almost like you are training criminals not rehabilitating them."The principal chuckles. "Well, that is a interesting interpretation. A very nihilistic one, but interesting none the less. I think you have the right imagination for these things... But dear Gurie, that charity is in your favor.""I'd advise you to be more welcoming of charity. You won't always find it." She pats you on the head and you shiver. "Go talk to Rosetta dear, swear you'll behave and get yourself nice and sorted."You nod and head over to her pokemon. "Oh Gurie, welcome to Dusknoir Row, I am sure you will fit right in."You turn in alarm. "Wh-wha! But I'm not in-"She waves her hand. "Facing executorial trial? Of course you aren't dear, but a lady of your disposition is a better fit for... their style of rehabilitation. I don't think you'd like the Trick Room. A lady of your imagination should see more creative ventures." She smiles and her golden tooth twinkles."Have a wonderful time!">B-bu This isnt fair, she said you could pick!

>>5462788>>5462788You stare at the lady and smile... or try to. "Yes... I will..."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OA0NAtgT7I0You walk over to the Runerigus, its names glowing red, reminding you of just how many people this school has eaten... and you barely even go outside...You touch the ghost and it stares at you with a single golden eye. Thats fine, let it try to eat you. You may be a nervous wreck... but you know how to fake it. You are daddies girl after all. That got you in this mess... and itll get you out of it.The stone shifts and you see the writing shrink and shift, making a blank spot... a place for your own name. The contract is writ.You head out with the others and get directed to a line. The Rows line is shorter then others so you very quickly get to the end and see a tall man in a fine suit, cravat, and a time gear pin. He hands you a uniform and a single... safari ball. You look up and he smirks. "For your companion pokemon." He eyes you up and down. "So... you ended up here?" He strokes his goatee (HE HAS A GOATEE! THATS MAD CREEPY!) "Interesting." He gives you a smile and honestly your getting pretty tired of being interesting."I am Warden Oliver Snicker." The man raises a hand to shake. "I will be keeping you honest."You look at your pile of clothes. "Um...." You try to shuffle one arm free but he drops his hand."Nevermind." He points to a purple line. "That is the way to your dorms. I suggest you tow the line. We have had runners, and we have..." He shrugs. "It's not reccomended."Oh... okay?You head over down the line and check your uniform...S...stripes? Black and gold stripes! Horizontallly! It's so.... tacky! And with snap buttons!This is already a nightmare.Speaking of nightmares... You dont live in dorms. You live in a tower. Like the ones they use to house dead people.It spirals up and up with heavy grey doors that have names carved on little plaques that slide into place... and finally you reach yours.Well... you think its yours. Your new so its not labled... but it IS empty...You shuffle in... and... now what?>Get changed>Stash your contraband, it was not easy hiding it believe you me.>...Okay now your nervous... go check the WHOLE tower, you dont want to be in a abandoned room that has... hauntings!

>>5462812idgi>>5462818It looks like a dungeon tower, theres mysteriously glowing lights everywhere, seemingly from will o wisp. It feels pretty seasonable in here so you arent suffering. The bed is pretty comfortable, but your used to nicer since you were a mafia daughter and rich. The pamphlet did say the Row got a lot of luxuries afforded to them because of their death row status, but like.. the beds cut like a coffin (it doesnt have the walls though) and its seems to really be into selling the idea that your doomed. This doesnt look like a castle tower... it looks like pokemon tower.Its Fall but that doesnt mean much because you are actually in Orre not Kanto.Orre is a great place to stash kids because even if you escape theres not much you can do. Its still recuperating from Shadow Lugia and is in big debts to a buncha shady agencies. Like the ones who made this castle!Isn't it weird that your in a school where the main villains from the last two Pokemon games are the main sponsors? Isn't that just neato burrito jimbo?Speaking of burritos... its bed time for me. We will do more soon... and i mean tommorrow. But maybe in like... 16 hours? Because mondays. So keep a eye out.And heres a picture of Warden Snicker. You will be seeing a lot of him, hes sortof the House teacher. It's his job to wrangle you.I am sure you two will be friends!
>>5462807>Stash your contraband, it was not easy hiding it believe you me.>>5462833I'm sure we can count on the warden to be a reasonable guy, we would be in for an unfortunate series of events otherwise
I am back, writing, contraband won HEAVILY if you can believe it.
You look around and sigh. Finally, you are alone.You reach behind you, slowly plucking out small hair ties, of twine, pulling straw out of your shaggy hair. Despite being the daughter of a crime lord, you've never been one with a particularly kept appearance, but for once its worked in your favor. With your collections of smuggled straw and string, you work on carefully assembling a doll. Making sure to put each piece of straw where you put it last time... Soon you have a fat straw ball in your hands. You smile, rolling it in your palm... and you tap into your power.The Wicker man bloats and shifts into a wicker basket... still filled with all the things you put in it before you were arrested, all the smuggled needles and string and straw your father's lawyer snuck into your cell. You have your "Sewing kit" filled with your needles and picks. But almost more importantly you have your doll making tools.And thread! You can fix this stupid uniform of yours...Oh wait, you'd get caught wouldn't you? Sigh...You return the items into your doll form and smuggle it inside the pocket of your uniform... which you are not looking forward to wearing... but you suppose you have to bite the bullet eventually.You hear a knocking on your door!>Hide!>Lock the door... can it lock? Who cares you are magic lock it anyway!>Um... im naked? (Lie)>Stay dead quiet and hope they leave thinking no one is here.

You stammer, looking around at the windows, the bed, the closet... there is no closet! But you cant talk to strangers!"Don't come in! I am um... um..." You look at the tacky uniform in your hands. "Naked?"Wait thats a terrible answer! What are you going to do when this stranger opens the-"Oh! Sorry!" You here some footsteps and you sigh, your safe.Minutes pass in silence until. "Um..." A voice stammers from the other side of the door, some nasally nerd from college it sounds. "Why are you naked in my room?"Oh.>Its not your room its my room i didnt see your name on it.>I thought it was MY room!>Deflect and start wildly throwing accusations>Um... im not actually naked i panicked.

You yell through the door, stomping on the ground. "There are HUNDRED of celldorms in this stupid dusty tower, you don't have to go to the only one with a naked girl in it you know?""But... um... my names not Tom." You here muttered from the door."I don't CARE what your name is Tom." You put more bite into it then you actually felt, at this point your just going through motions your not even thinking, its all instinct and watching your sister. "I am Gurie Niamic! I'm the fucking Ghost Princess of Crime and if I say this is my room then it's MINE. You want to be haunted?""Um... okay..." You hear the sound of stone shifting as a plaque is moved and he shuffles away. You check the door after a bit, and, once you confirm no one is there, quickly slap your name on... but it has two slots... and theres two beds...They are going to make you get a roomate aren't you?This isnt good... You pace the room. How are you going to get out of this one? Do you just kill your roomate when they walk in? Do you bribe the teacher? Do you just grow up?Can you bribe the teacher to murder the roommate for you? This is just not your day. Your foot kicks the railing of your coffin bed, and your toe burns in pain as your uniform bag and ball fall to the floor...And the pokeball, the EMPTY pokeball, pops open, a red beam of light falling into the room. A large burlap sack appears on the floor, it turns and looks at you."Hiya!"You scream.>Scream the pokemon into submission>Try to calm down>Escape!!! Tom will save you!

You start screaming and run to the corner of the room."Hey- wai" You scream more."Ple-""The guar-"Whatever lies this ghost sabatour is saying you don't want to hear it, you know what a hitjob is.You reach for your pillow and throw it at the pokemon who holds up his "Tail" the wooden stick glows purple as the pillow hovers in midair."Ha now will you-"You reach your hand out and the hold breaks, the pillow smacking the Mimikyu in the head....Well the fake head.You finally inhale, the world spins slightly around you, Oh yeah... you remember, adrenaline poisoning is a thing.Your skin starts to feel cold as you hear the door fly open.As soon as there is a creak the light of your ball flashes and the Mimikyu vanishes inside it.Warden Snicker steps into the doorway, his books clinking, he has spurs you notice. W-why does he have spurs on his boots? And why are they sharp."I heard screaming." The man is facing you but his eye is wandering, scanning the room, yet he doesn't so much as tilt his face. "Is there a problem? We would have to have issues on the very first day... it leaves a impression.">Lie, take your chances with the pokemon hitman>Theres a mimikyu in my pokeball!>Run past him out the room and duck the whole thing.

>>5464372>Lie, take your chances with the pokemon hitmanOh no, he's even scarier!
>>5464372>There's a mimikyu in my PokeBall!A mimikyu? In my PokeBall?! It's more likely than you think...To break a tie though I'll second >>5464383. It is actually a bit embarrassing to freak out over the Pokemon we logically know is our partner.But uh... How often can Pokemon talk again?
>>5464449To be clear you are EXPLICTLY given a empty safari ball and were told you were going to get a pokemon later. But somehow there was a mimikyu already in it.Incidentally the reason safari balls are used is because they stop working outside the safari. There are emergency locks on these things the guards can use to shut you out of your pokemon.
Well the people have spoken. Writing.
Ah shit, missed the vote.Here's hoping Mimikyu doesn't want us to sign a contract to be a magical girl.
"Oh! Um..." You look up at him, his scowling contenance, his fake cowboy boots and you realize... hes more dangerous then Mimikyu... probbably.Sure pokemon can do a lot of damage, but you can always report it later... but if you actually consider your position... he might think YOU smuggled the mimikyu in! How rude, you? A smuggler? Even though thats something you jusYou are going to need a cover story... a good one."Nothing... um... I was scared by... nothing." You gulp. "Like... existential dread? It was like... oh no, your life is over."Snicker gives a smile. "Oh Gurie, your life isn't over." He leans forward, bowing till his eyes are level with yours and huh, one of those eyes is yellow. "Not yet. Would you like for me to call the counselor over? We have a therapy service, its complimentary.""No thank you." You squeak out. The warden turns around and leaves, and you can finally start breathing again.Phew! Now your just locked in the room with a assasain... oh.Okay... you already got the teacher away, be strong Gurie you are going to have to deal with this yourself...Um... how?>Ambush him, open the ball yourself...then jump it! Interrogate the pokemon!>You need a patsy, one of the seniors, get them on your side and have them help you fight this menace>Put a lock on the pokeball so you never have to worry about it opening in your sleep>Do some research on sad pillowcase pokemon, knowledge is power, you need to be prepared.

Alright so everyone agrees on researchAre you going to find tom and rope him into this?>Yes, Tom owes us>No, hes just a pervert and no one likes him

>>5464595>Yes, Tom owes us
>>5464372>Take your chances with the Pokemon-Hitman..."I AM the Pokemon Hitman" :)
Alright, you are going to need answers. Answers and help. It's clear there is more prison then school going on here right now and if you are going to get out of this, you are going to need to treat this place like one.You need a bookworm... that Tom fellow had a nasally voice and... well that doesn't mean anything really, but you already was able to make him leave once. That means that in a tower of unknown actors, you at least know that Tom is someone who can be pushed into something. Looking both ways before crossing the street (metaphorically), you grab the pokeball and run out, still not in the ugly uniform.Your on the.... 4th story but fortunately based on the sound of the footsteps when he walked away, you know that Tom went upstairs. So you head up...A few floors up you realize... you arent actually sure what Tom looks like, or his actual name... This can be harder then you thought...Fortunately floor 7 was a rec room and you can actually hear Tom's voice, a small dude dressed in a patchy coat and goggles over the uniform. He is chatting with a group of students who are not picking up whatever it is Tom is trying to put down."So you see, when you think about it, while I THOUGHT I was going to be a Torchic, because of you know, my love of fire types... I GOT Meowth instead! Green Rescue Team is really a intricate game like that, it doesn't give you what you want... well you can just pick in the menu I guess, but the quiz shows you what you NEED, and I think I really learned a lot about myself." He opens his jacket and fuddles through his pockets pulling out a Gameboy SP. The students take this deviation of his attention as a chance to walk away. "In fact I brought a few extra copies so we can play toge-" He lifts his head, holding a purple control out to the empty air. "Where did everyone go? Is it lunch already?"How are you going to do this?>You know how to be mean to him, walk over and demand his help>Aww the kid needs a friend, try to be nice to him (d100 stress test)>Oh of COURSE Tom got Meowth that loser, go over and explain to him that the version excusives for Green suck ass and Gold Rescue team actually had a good plot AND two screens. Murdermon can wait you have opinions to correct (Establish being a nerd as a character trait)
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>5464654>Aww the kid needs a friend, try to be nice to him (d100 stress test)If Tom looks and acts like Razputin in any capacity I will no longer want to bully him.
>>5464666You do know that, since he is in your house, this man is either a hardened serious criminal or framed as one. Dusknoir Road is where they keep people like Team Cipher, Rocket Admins, Team Galactic, and other serious threats to society. Granted you are of course, a innocent daughter of the head of the Team Lazy but STILL! Maybe hes scary! Maybe he put a bad game in that SP. Like... like ET.Bed time, for Mimi btw.

Alright seems like nice wins with 79! Writing time!
You decide that Tom may be a peeper, but he's clearly mostly a loser. And you can sympathize with that.Um... not because you are a loser, you just are... you have a caring heart and a active imagination. You are so creative that, with absolutely NO frame of reference, you can imagine what it must be like to grow up with no friends. Like Tom definitely did. So you know, you should PROBBABLY not be mean to him. You take a deep breath and walk into the lions nest.Tom turns to you and he perks up. "Oh, do you want to play Mystery Dungeon."You nod. "Yeah, that sounds... fun." You werent really a video game girl but its not like you can do most of your old hobbies in this prison. "Hi, my name is Gurie Niamic."His eyes widen in shock. "Wow... thats a nice name! ...Is that..." He opens his jacket and wow he has deep pockets, he shuffles through a satchel and pulls out a newspaper. "Hmmm, yes! Niamic, like the Niamics who own Niamunchies?"Huh. You nod. "Yes my dad does..." Does he not recognize your voice or... watch the news?"Wowie!" He shows you the paper, which appeared to be the ads from a newspaper dated.... 3 years ago? "You guys are like the biggest junk food company in the world!"Well more like the biggest laundering scheme in the world, but you aren't going to tell him if he doesn't ask."You must get to eat all the candy you want!" His eyes sparkle before he catches himself and coughs. "Um.. I mean, that's pretty cool, if your into that I guess." He crosses his arm. "Whatever."Well yes you were in fact allowed to eat a lot of candy. "I... suppose?" There is a pause, which segways into a longer pause... You can see Tom's eyes start to dart. You need a icebreaker."Has a bedsheet pokemon tried to kill you?"His eyes widen. "Wh-what?"Well, in for a penny... "Yeah, so like..." You scratch the back of your neck, suddenly almost being murdered feels... embarassing. "I got jumped by some pokemon in a pikachu costume... do you know anything about that?"He scratches his chin. "Well that sounds like the Pokemon Danger Team in Gold!" He opens his coat again and pulls out... a book? Its as big as your forearms, its like 5 magazines stapled together. He flips through some pages and shows them to you. "Like this?"You look at the book, it's labeled "Nintendo Hour", and seems to just be a behind the scene look of Gold Rescue team... does he just collect video game stu- wait.You look at a purple text box talking about the "Danger Team" filled with grudge filled pokemon trying to trap pokemon in mystery dungeons for the crime of not likeing the Danger Team enough... and sure enough, standing next to a Feebas is a bedsheet pikachu."...Mimikyu?" You look at the character. "What kind of a name is Mimikyu?""Maybe it's like... mimic and pikachu?" Tom suggests with a shrug. "I have the game! We can play it and maybe it has clues!"
>That's... not a good idea, but its A idea, so why not.>Can't we just look up Mimikyus in a Pokedex or something?>...What's your name?>Write in

>>5465602>Keep thinking of him as Tom>That's... not a good idea, but its A idea, so why not.
That... that was all Tom had for a plan? Video games?Well... it's something. "Alright." You nod, "Lets do it your way. Lets go play some Mystery Dungeon.""Okay..." He looks around and points to a booth probbably meant for studying, or snacks. The two of you shuffle in."Alright." He pulls out a Nintendo switch. So far you talked to this man for 2 minutes and you have seen him carry newspapers, Nintendo Powers, a Advanced SP, and a Switch.(Reminder that for some reason Nintendo is canonically a company in Pokemon, I just feel the need to point that out)This weirdo carries a store in his coat. And its mostly just video games."Um..." He slides the switch to you but you slide it back. "You play, it's your game I don't want to take the privilege away from you."He slides it back-back. "I've beaten the game 3 times already!"You slide it back-back-back. "And that means you'll do it faster then me and I can see the Mimikyu!"He slides it back back back back. "Video games aren't about the cutscenes they are about the earned experience! You won't learn how good the game is if you don't PLAY it!"You slide it back back back back back "I don't WANT to learn how good the game is I want to learn about the Mimikyu haunting me."He turns the switch on, makes a new profile, and selects a fat yellow guy as the pfp. "You see this guy? That's you, that's how you act."You gasp. "How DARE you! I am at LEAST the Princess!""The PRINCESS would play the game herself! As seen in the game Princess Please Solves Her Own Problems!""Well maybe I WILL!""Well maybe you SHOULD!""I will!""Then do it!""Your still holding the switch!""Sorry!" He slides it back back- you, you have the switch now.You click the Mystery Dungeon Gold button and the screen starts up."Wait!" Tom stage hisses and you are going to punch him. "Where are your cool gamer gear googles?""Cool... whats?" "The Cool Gamer Gear Googles The CG3!" He points to the goggles on his head. "They are the ultimate tool to winning video games!""...How?""...Um... they..." He scratches his head. "They look cool? The ad didn't explain. They are three d though!""...I don't have any googles."He reaches into his coat and hands you a pair, the lens shiny purple. "Here you go!">Wear the goggles>No thank youEither way the game starts.You type in "TomIsLame" as your character name, and Tom doesn't seem to get it, which is Classic Tom.>Roll a 1d100 in how good you are at Mystery Dungeon

Im here and happy to write this big exciting 89!The 99 cancels the 4 out so you went from certain lameness to great success!
Sorry, easily distracted. And Mystery dungeon is complicated.You sigh and hold your hand out, accepting the goggles and placing them on your head with a tug. Screens float around you, providing tech tips about the flip on the game and sure enough, it asks you IMMEDIATELY about your life choices. You are not going to give Tom here a psychological profile of yourself. So you just... skip that and go to character selection.You can hear Tom whine in disappointment but you honestly don't care, you pick... Oh Ralts!You like Ralts, always have. You click the little psychic fae and your journey begins. The game is... pretty fun, a little easy. Your partner is a pikachu, that's apparently set from the start. The story involves forming a group of brave heroes trying to recover from the Mystery, a big event where the world started shifting, and turning into mystery dungeons. Now everyone lives on floating islands created by the Weather Trio. The teams go down to the Mystery world to rescue pokemon and gather resources and solve... well the mystery of the dungeons? Its pretty self evident. You are one such mystery.Your going around, helping out your veteran Pikachu, learning about his old partner and helping Rescumaster Zarude, and you defeat a Braviary warlord, save a lost Falinks, right until you deal with...THERE! MIMIKYU! The Danger Team consists of a Mimikyu, Furfrou and Galarian Farfetch. Mimikyu HATES Pikachu, and friendship, and puppies. Which all fits the bill of evil.It claims to be the grudge of all unloved pokemon, which is normal, but it starts using Moonlight to ressurect Regirock, triggering a boss fight. That is NOT usual, and was kinda scary...By the time you beat Regirock you are pretty tired and... honestly your level 34 you should've evolved? Weird."Okay... I think I got some intel." The goggles showcase the mimikyu's stats. Its a Fairy Ghost! And very physical, that staff is entirely for show! That must be why you broke its psychic so easily. It could take hits, but really only the first one."Wow you are a great dungeoneer!" Tom says as you finally turn the game off. "You barely died to the Falinks monster house! That trips a lot of people up.">I am just built different>Thanks.>Write in>Now we got a pokemon to catch>Wow it is super late and you get to catch a real pokemon tommorrow (if you can pilfer a pokeball or something, since yours is haunted) time to hit the hay!
>>5466718>Try to brag about your skills but end up tripping over your words>Now we got a pokemon to catch
>>5464904>>5464921To defend my fan aPSUxxvw, they are referring to a deep cut to Hex Maniac 3 way back in 2016, yes this is 6 years old thats why i rebooted it lol.Gurie isnt a cool beauty but she wants to be. Well old gurie did.

You smirk, a finger curling around your coarse hair. "Yeah I am pretty good with video games." You say handing Tom his switch back. "I always beat my sister in um..." Shit you forgot the name of it. "The one... with the carts?""Oh really?" He's impressed. "Which one?""There are two? Do they both have the wizard emboar?" He frowns. "I don't know that one I just play rpgs. I'm a stats guy.""Oh." Its quiet for a bit. "Well, I am pretty good at it.""Cool."..."Do you want to help me catch an assassin Pokémon?""...Do you have a pokemon to fight him with?""No... but I have a plan!">You are going to... PUNCH MIMIKYU! With psychic powers mostly.>We are going to distract the Mimikyu with a pikachu doll... and then... jump him!>We are going to ask...

>>5466824>We are going to distract the Mimikyu with a pikachu doll... and then... jump him!>Then we punch him!!!
>>5466841Oh i should answer the psychic stuff i guess before bed in case it matters.As a Hex Maniac, and one that got in trouble, you are essentially a witch. However all human supernatural power is labled psychic besides Aura, because of course it is. You are not a aura user.As a Hex Maniac you essentially evoke the powers of distortion world in the material world. This involves your Crafts, such as Strawmancy, bubblemancy, and dirtmancy. As Hex maniacs, your skills require essentially taking your tools, "Cursing" them, and then using the spectral energy of these cursed tools to manipulate "distortion". You can also use it to examine and manipulate the distortions pokemon cause. Really powerful maniacs can just use pokemon attacks. You are quite good at Strawmancy which involves straw, string, and other flexible materials.A example of your mania is your Wicker doll. You created a doll basket that, when you close the lid makes the items... "Vanish" then reappear when you open it, which you can use as a pocket space... You then dissambled the basket so that you could bring straw into the prison, and then just reassemble the basket and summon your tools. You can in theory use your psychic powers to manipulate dolls, affect plants, and so forth. Also you were able to counter Mimikyus own power but you dont know telekinesis, just how to over power another mania.Manias and psychic powers have type associations. Strawmancy is Ghost/GrassNot every combination has its own trade, but they do effect what kind of entities are vurnerable to your tricks...since Normal people are immunie to ghost trickery, Hex Maniacs look like idiots to society.And of course, hex mania is legal yet its users tend to get arrested anyway. Its in the same weird legal status weed and guns are. Technically legal (or illegal to criminalize) and yet people still get arrested.
>>5466848>Mankey Mini Marathonlmao>>5466867Ah, thanks for the clarification.>Hex Maniacs look like idiots to society.So you're saying the spaghetti spilling has only just begun?
>>5466867Can we master the Curse-ya-me-ha-me-ha?
>>5466824>>We are going to distract the Mimikyu with a pikachu doll... and then... jump him!>>>Well, with psychic powers.
Sorry for the delay. It wasnt even the new pokemon game.I just felt like crap and passed out for a bit in my bed. I dont feel less tired but I do feel less sick.Im going to write this, and then we will have our first fight.
You are ready... actually wait. No you aren't."Follow me Tom." You head to your dorm to set your trap... but wait...SOMEONE PUT THEIR NAME UNDERS YOURS!YOU HAVE BEEN... INVOLUNTARILY ROOMATED!You make a low whine that causes Tom to stare at you... but your committed! Plan B!You are going to find a different room... and by that... you mean a storage room.Tom discretely does not look as you use your sewing kit to pick the lock.The storage closet is filled with carpets and books and... tapestries... A Axe...Your not gonna think about the axe.Tom flicks the light switch and you work on your strawmancy... You aren't by any means the incarnation of grace with a needle, but your fair enough. You have to be to use the magic.The pikachu doll turns out... pretty good! Its brigher colored then the bedsheet, and its got bright red button cheeks, and its filled with traps for Mimikyu to trip...All that is left is to set it.1/2
You set the pokemon doll in a circle... not a salt circle but there was a circular rug with a bunch of triangles on it and it seemed appropiate. Then you carefully place the safari ball across, and you reach for that battle axe in the room."Okay Tom." You say as you pick up the battle axe and try to hand it to your friend. "Im counting on you to defeat Mimikyu."Tom frowns. "Wait why are you calling me Tom that's not my name... wait a minute..." His eyes... actually hold on you cant see them they are in goggles. "Your the gir-"The Safari ball pops open, Mimikyu charging at the doll and ripping it in half with a shadow claw... causing it to explode in purple smoke. The grudge hits Mimikyu causing it to become woozy as its energy is drained.>Ignore the arguement, attack Mimikyu with the battle axe and your psychic powers>Ignore the battle axe just cast your weird doll spells on the Mimikyu>Ignore the BATTLE mimikyu is not as important as getting this shit settled with Tom you don't want to fuck with a GAMER. Thats what your cousin says at least.

You take out a straw doll and reach into a nearby tool box for a handful of nails. You keep your eyes steady on the dazzled Mimikyu, you grip the nail and PUSH.You feel a sharp pain in your palm, which makes sense as part of the nail IS in your palm, but you can see the haze on Mimikyu as the monster stumbles confused, a Curse being laid upon him with your own wounded blood."Submit Mimikyu!" You intone holding the bleeding doll as heat fades from your hand and Mimikyus rags start to smoke even as they become soggy and heavy. "You are out of energy... and running out of time."Mimikyu looks up, eyes wide. "W-wait! You can't do this!" His ears droop. "This is not the way to treat a cute mascot you know!"Your eyes glow as objects begin to float, the lights turning off near you, casing all in nothing but your blue glare. "H-hey now your gonna poke your eye out! Listen you can just apologize I" Click, another light goes. "ITS A HONEST MISTAKE YOU HAD A GAMER MOMENT I GET IT"Click, the last light goes out... and then one turns on, the circle around him glowing.Mimikyu looks around panicked. "I-I give up! This wasn't my idea! Please call it off I'll do anything!""Swear it." You hold the doll up, the straw starting to burn."Yeah! Yeah I swear! I'll do your laundry! I'll be your cute partner pokemon... I got names! You want them they are yours! Take em!"The nail on your hand curdles into ash, the doll falling from its bound grip and the wound scabbing instantly, as light fills the room again."Okay." You smile, shaking the cold out of your arm. Man that HURT. >You got a Mimikyu!!!"Whew I am tired." You turn to Tom who has been staring at you the whole time. "What?""You were MEAN TO ME!" He points a finger at you. "You called me a pervert and made me find a new dorm!"Oh. Whoops.>Apologize>Shrug "I didn't want a dorm mate.">You shouldn't have tried to peep on me Tom!>Write in

>>5468537>>5468420You pout. "Well you shouldn't have tried to peep on me Tom!""I didn't! I left and everything.""Yes and that's why we can hang out NOW, but we certainly werent if you were going to try to open that door and get all pervy on me!" You stomp your foot. "I am a VERY delicate woman you know! I cant be watched by strange perverts trying to go into my room! Why were you even trying to peek at me? Shouldn't you be in the boys dorm?""I'm not a boy!" Peepers stomps her foot. "I am just a normal girl with giant pockets trying to get a room! We don't HAVE mixed dorms!" She points at the door. "WE ARE IN A PRISON! At least call me Peeping Tammy." You cross your arms. "No.""Wha-""You shouldnt have been creepy Tom! You earn your name and your name is Peeping Tom! You got those big ole goggle eyes anyway so it fits!""Yeah... well then, your shouty! Because you just yell all the time!"You gasp. "I do NOT!""Your shouting right now!""I AM NOT- I am just... being vocally passionate." You try to lower your voice a little. "Now keep it down we do not want the janitor walking in and think we are being weird."'Hey your the one who said I was a weirdo." Tom stomps her foot her face red. "I helped you stop that assasain person or whatever! You should be nicer to me Shouty!""Thats a different matter! We can square up on that latter, for now your Tom!"Ugh this girl is so annoying! You just want to go to your room and-Wait there wass someone else's name there... There is a intruder in your room!>Try to leave this conversation and deal with this mysterious new roommate.>Keep arguing, you are clearly winning>Um... Tom? Remember how I didnt want you to be my roommate, um... boy this is awkward... can I be your roommate? Someone stole my bunk.>Listen, if you stop calling me shouty I'll stop calling you Tom>You know what, fine! You can be Shouty! Shouty is a great name! Better then Tom at least!
>>5468607I'm so confused. Is Tom a boy or a girl? Neither? The narration was calling Tom "him" up until now. Suddenly, Tom's "her" and insisting on being called "Tammy" despite Gurie also talking about how he (she? they?) should be in a boy's dorm. What??Anyway...>Um... Tom? Remember how I didnt want you to be my roommate, um... boy this is awkward... can I be your roommate? Someone stole my bunk.>Listen, if you stop calling me shouty I'll stop calling you Tom
>>5468627You thought Tom was a boy because her voice is nasally. Now that they yelled at you that they are not the pronouns changed.
>>5468607> Try to leave this conversation and deal with this mysterious new roommate.Only good thing was discovering he was a she
Another tie! >>5468686Well arguments don't necessarily... end? You know how it is. You cant brow beat someone into not being mad at you.So naturally you werent going to like... get that far in the "Social link". It does establish a character dynamic though.If you establish a gang, you are not going to be a fraternity of equals.
>>5468836Will change my vote (>>5468627) to> Try to leave this conversation and deal with this mysterious new roommate.Just to speed this along.
You are about to continue the argument... but its super late, and you really need to sleep, and theres someone in your room who's going to stare at you. You need to... you need to...You stumble, your body suddenly leaning a bit and tettering... tettering...You feel cold as a grip surronds you. Tom holding you up, their face distorted into a frowny scowl. Arceus, Tom's hands are cold... you think its the gloves. "Hey... hey! You can't die I'm not done arguing with you!""Curse..." You mutter, "Too much energy." Well... normally it wouldn't be... but looking at the clock... its late. Horribly late. You spent all day being at the stupid meeting. Then you spend the evening on the much less video game.Fighting Mimikyu WAS pushing it, and while that Curse and Grudge trap was a sure fire knock out even on the ghastliest of ghouls... that isn't to say it was easy. You were running on low and now your at empty. "I just need a nap... and maybe cake.""I'm still mad at you." She mutters as she starts dragging you to your room. You mutter a insult back as your worst and only friend takes you to your dorm.You mutter something as you stare at the plaque. One "Carrie Crow" Was already there. "Who?" You gesture to the plaque as Tom shrugs. "I think shes a upper classwoman... not sure why shed be in your dorm though..." The gadgeteer frowns. "She should have better options.""M-my dorm is pretty nice!" You lie, having done absolutely nothing to it."Toooom..." You mutter. "Can you peek? in the room? See whose in there and if shes scary.""Wha?""But your goood at it." You whine, your eyes droopy. "And I need to... sleep."Tom sighs and opens the door a crack."Oh... shes asleep." Tom says, her lenss reflecting a dark raven haired woman sleeping in the bed next to you, her hair is kinda weird... a bit like a rooster tail but black. >Sneak in and sleep, you cant do much else. d100>You know what? Thats fine, you can sleep here in the hallway. >Ugh... if shes a upper classman she probbably has pokemon and stuff. She could jump you while you sleep... You need to find a new spot to sleep and fast!>You are too tired to be scared anymore, wake the girl up. She might be in a bad mood but so are you!!

You leave Toms arm and stumble into the room, half way inside, one door in the gate, you pat Tom on her goggley head. "Take care..." You stretch your hand out, your fingers sprayed into a L. "Team Lazy... for life."You arent really sure what your saying, your just doing what your dad does. But Tom watches you slump into bed, roll up into your blanket, and conk out still in your prison orange.You never did wear the tacky ass uniform... but that's...A latter... problem...~~~~~~~Somewhere a few miles away~"The Pokedex isn't showing the pillowsack anymore." A primly dressed man said, his rotom phone floating towards a wrinkly old man at a desk. "I think shes been taken care of.""No... no..." The man mutters sniffing. "If it did what it was told, itd be heading over... it got... snagged.""Sir? But the snag machin-""There are more then one way to skin a delcatty." The elderly man reaches into his mouth and pulls out a pair of dentures, placing them in a clear pot of bubbling green water. His arm hovers over the next pot, and a another pair, with sharper teeth that... dont seem to be from the same animal.He slips the teeth in his mouth, his jaw working the springs. "It seems our prey has claws. I would expect nothing less from Roger's daughter."The man rings a dinner bell, a butler walks in, pushing a cart with a plate of steak. The hotplate sizzles, butter melting on the steak and soaking into the meat. With barely a glance at the other officer, the butler places the steak in front of the old man who digs in."Sir." The officer frowns. "If the Laundry was captured then we have lost a assest, he may talk.""He knows nothing, the only face he's seen is yours Weston, and the fact that our little firefly has a target on her back... well it'll just make things more interesting in the long run." The man snickers his teeth effortlessly slicing into the meat. "Besides, now we don't have to pay him."Admin Weston nods. "Of course sir... Glory to Cipher.""Glory to Cipher.">END OF CHAPTER 1
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND THATS THE FIRST DAY BAYBAY! Things are going great in your rehabilitatory school life! Ignore that last part.Expect the next chapter... very soon.Ask questions! Get Answers. I dont know if im going to keep calling it Hex Maniac Quest, maybe Pokemon Prison School? idk ill let you decide!
>>5468996>Keep calling it Hex Maniac Quest (maybe Hex Maniac Redux?)As for questions...How common are talking Pokemon?
>>5468989So that Mimikyu was actually an assassin? huhAnd it looks like dad made enemies with a rival? gang.>>5468996What does Gurie know about her mom? Is she still around?Pokemon Prison School has a nice ring to it, but I'm fine with anything really.
>>5469011Not very at all. Pokemon are terrible at adaption, even the really smart ones have difficulties changing.The ones that CAN talk use psychic power almost always. A pokemon that cna talk because it just tried hard wouldve had to spend years trying and itd be very impressive.Its more common for a human to learn pokemon.Mimikyu however definitely is talking.>>5469012Guries mom is still around, but fled the region a while ago for personal reasons. Interpol is still hunting for her and worried shes still in contact with Team Lazy... but nothing is known officially.You know your mom as... a pirate? Something like that. You inhereted her social skills but not as much her nerve?
New day tommorrow, look for Hex Maniac Redux 2Fun fact. this is a very different setting then the old one, so far... i think its working out! Its grittier but not that much.
>>5469120Thanks for running! Looking forward to it.
>>5469035This whole thing with mom, Team Lazy and Cipher sounds like it'll spiral into something else. It seems pretty fun.>>5469120Will keep an eye out for it, thank you Mimi!
>>5469120Make sure to post it here and archive, etc etcLet's uh... we should try and be nice to Mimi (the Pokemon, not mimiqm). Looks like they've been through a lot, and I'm pretty sure that spiritual/hex contracts can't be broken so easily.
Let's find a nice name for Mimikyu.I don't like Mimi for it. I'm pretty sure our main character will soon think it's the cutest thing ever.So... QTQ? (kiuteekiu?)
