A newly minted trainer and camping enthusiast just starting out on your journey at the age of seventeen after your father lost his job in order to help pay the bills.Last time, you went out for dinner, sparred with Fie's Blaziken, earned the Geode Badge, battled Mike, set out for Saltcoast City and battled a Gentleman and his Daughter, whereupon Syurm evolved.
>>5402508>>5402534"So, are there any good places to camp along the way?" You ask Fie as you walk.She nods in confirmation."There's one, but unless we get a move on, it'll be dark by the time we get there." She says.>Take your time and talk.>Take your time and look for pokemon.>See what pokemon live along this Route.>Talk with Gareth about that last battle.>Other

>>5402615>Talk with Gareth about that last battle.
>>5402621>>5402676>>5402699"That battle went better than I expected." You say to Gareth as you keep walking."Yeah." Gareth says. "I was kind of expecting to lose that one outright. At least Riolu got some experience out of it.""Mien should be able to show him a few tricks when we stop though." You note.He brightens."Yeah, now that you mention it, she should know a few moves he can pick up." He agrees.>Roll. Will determine if you reach camp before nightfall.

>>5402810>>5402811>>5402825There's not especially much talking after that as you keep walking.The path grows gradually steeper as you start seeing hills around you and making your way up into the hills that dominated the eastern horizon up until now.With the hills, comes more greenery as the scrub turns to lush bushland.You can hear bird pokemon of all sorts off in the trees, though they're difficult to see off in the trees.Around about five in the afternoon, Fie indicates a well-worn trail off the main path and leads the way down it to a camping ground.It's got every indication of being well-maintained...But it's also been trashed.There's food wrappers everywhere and the picnic benches and the roof of the shelter have been splashed with green paint and graffiti'd with the symbol of a bloody fist.Evidently, Team Green stopped here for the night either on the way to Silveridge, or on the way back.>Make camp.>Clean up after the animals.>...Let's find another spot.>Other

>>5402833>>5402838>>5402840>>5402856>>5403213>>5403861You sigh tiredly."Alright, looks like we have to clean up after the animals." You say tiredly.Fortunately, the wrappers are easy to take care of, as there's a bin provided, but the grafitti is another matter.Fie winds up getting her Skrelp to use Scald into a the camp sink and adding detergent and then going to town with a scrub brush, but it seems like the only way to get rid of the paint will be to scrape it. Meaning you'd need to repaint the bench."We'll just have to report this." You say, shaking your head."Fortunately, the Rangers have a pokedex app." Fie says, taking out her own and showing you."Huh. I'll have to grab that one." You note as Fie takes pictures of the grafitti and logs a report.The process takes barely two minutes and there's confirmation within five that the report's been received and a work order filed.That taken care of, Fie gets to work on a fire while you, Gareth and Holly pitch the tents.>Start on dinner.>Look for pokemon.>Do some training.>See what pokemon live on Route 3.>Study your map.>Other

>>5403930>>5403945>>5403963>>5404121Once you've got your tent set up, you dig out your cooking pots and utensils and start preparing ingredients for a stew.It's a process that takes you all of fifteen minutes before you decide that spending some time with Fluffy while you wait for the food to cook is the best use of your time.>Teach him Secret Power.

>>5404643>>5404651>>5404861Considering you were interrupted earlier today and didn't get that much time to just bond with Fluffy, you decide now is a good time for it.You release him and bring out some toys and start playing, cycling between fetch, tug-of-war and catch-the-featherstick over the course of the next hour, by which time it's full dark and everyone's settled by the fire as dinner gets closer to being done.By the end of it, Fluffy is dusty, has leaves caught in his coat and is beaming up at you happily and you're feeling rather tired and sweaty yourself.>Groom Fluffy.>Just relax and talk.>See what pokemon live around Route 3>Study your map.>Other

>>5405000>>Not the team-green kind of groomingkek
>>5405061>>5405078>>5405080You decide that you might as well get Fluffy cleaned up after that and break out the grooming kit.Fluffy holds still patiently while you work for the first few minutes, before the brush gets caught on a particularly stubborn tangle and yanks several strands of his fur out, eliciting a high-pitched yelp from him, before he bolts across the fire and looks up at you with a look of betrayal.>Apologise profusely.>Apology pats.>Try again, but be more careful this time.>Other

>>5405715>>5405751>>5405815>>5405657"Aw, sorry Fluffy." You say, setting aside the brush and petting him gently, before gathering him into your lap when he relaxes.He licks your cheek, evidently forgiving you once he's relaxed."D'you want me to show you how to deal with tangles?" Holly offers from across the fire as Fluffy settles down fully, the pulled hairs forgotten.>No, I think I know what I did wrong.>Please?>I think that's all for tonight.>Other
>>5406247>Please?Never gonna say no to good advice
>>5406315>>5406332>>5406333>>5406414>>5406451"Please?"What follows over the next five minutes is Holly showing you the intricacies of dealing with tangles, knots, snarls and the other hazards of long hair.By the time she's done, Fluffy is clean and nodding, apparently having been lulled into a light doze by Holly's practiced demonstration."You're really good at this." You note.She grins and flicks her own long brown tresses for emphasis."I've had a lot of practice." She says modestly.Shortly thereafter, Gareth serves up dinner and you release your team so you can all eat and relax.>Talk with someone.>Spend time with Latias.>Study your map.>See what pokemon live on Route 3>Other
>>5407241>>Talk with someone.Suggest to the group that we volunteer at Fies Gym to rack up experience with work and focus on training our teams in the evenings when the secondary arenas should be more available.Mention the Latias/Latios training matter.(It is a good idea to incorporate time skips)
>>5407241>Spend time with Latias.>See what pokemon live on Route 3
>>5407250Yeah, there'll be a montage with highlights once you hit Saltcoast. There's a *lot* of stuff you kind of want to be doing. We'll revert back to detailed for specific stuff, like if you choose to check out the Barrier Islands orfuck with Team Green one way or another.
>>5407309>>5408196>>5408623The nights are starting to get pretty cold, so you bolt down your food quickly to make the best of the heat, before you all just sit back and relax to digest for a while.Holly cuddles up with Latios and you lean against Latias's flank and let Blitz and Fluffy cuddle up to you while you read the entry of Route 3 to Latias, while you see what pokemon live around here:PidgeySkwovetSpearowElectrikeSeedotSpinarakOddishTailowBudewYamperApplinRookideeHoothootMurkrowSwabluFletchlingShroomishNatuRuffletRowletThere's a lot of variety there and Latias listens raptly, while you read about how Route 3 tends to be steep and fairly lush compared to Route 2 owing to the mountain range causing a lot of rainfall throughout and being a major reason why the Silveridge side of the mountain is arid rather than lush, while Gareth is doing much the same as you inbetween tending the fire, While Fie huddles up with Cinder for warmth.Eventually, you yawn, before blinking and checking the time.It's getting late and you've still got a fair way to go tomorrow.At the same time, several pokemon found around here are only active at night.>Get some sleep.>Stay up and read a while longer.>Go look for pokemon.>Other
>Go look for pokemon.I'm interested in Fletchling, Shroomish, Rookidee, Murkrow and Rowlet

>>5408840>>5408841>>5408973You could probably spend some time while you're in Saltcoast looking for pokemon out here at night, but you're here now, so you decide you might as well."Anyone want to come looking for pokemon?" You ask.Gareth nods."Yeah, that should be worthwhile." He agrees."Just don't go getting lost, you two." Fie advises.You both nod before retrieving your torches and heading out of the camp ground to have a look around.You've not gone more than ten metres from camp before you spot Skwovet scurrying about in the branches of a tree and not long afterwards, you spot a flock of Spearow asleep in the hollow of another, before a discordant 'crark' has you shining your light up into another tree to see a lone Murkrow peering down at you imperiously.>Check your pokedex.>See if Gareth is interested in any of them.>Keep looking.>Catch something yourself.>Other

>>5409680>>5409691>>5409701You give Gareth a questioning look.He shakes his head subtly as you reach for a poke ball, before whipping it up and at Murkrow.It squawks in surprise before the ball has closed around it.The ball falls to the ground and rocks once...Twice...Then clicks softly.Gareth blinks, taken aback."Surprised that worked." He admits as the ball vanishes."Same." You agree.You're a good way into the bush way, so the pokemon here ought to be at least a little stronger than close to the road."You want to keep looking?" Gareth asks.>No, that's enough searching tonight.>Do you?>Yeah, let's.>Other
>>5410538>>Do you?>>Yeah, let's.We are a lot wantin' shroomish. And I won't give away an opportunity to get a Corviknight.

>>5410754>>5410769>>5410788"Yeah, let's." You agree.You keep going.As you go, you see a few Seedot hanging silently in the trees and in another, a Spinarak weaving a web, before a warbling hoot comes from a little way ahead and further in the brush.When you go investigate, it's to find a Rowlet fossicking through the grass.It doesn't seem to have noticed you yet.>See if Gareth wants something.>Catch something yourself.>Oh, cool. Watch for a bit.>Other
>>5411445>See if Gareth wants something.Does Gareth have a full team yet?

>>5411455>>5411497>>5411558>>5411576"Oh, cool." You say quietly, hunkering down to watch the Rowlet fossick for a bit.Gareth follows suit as it looks around before swallowing whatever it had just found.It peers around at you curiously before returning to digging around again."D'you want to catch this one?" You ask.You figure it's only fair to ask after you caught that Murkrow.Gareth frowns, thinking for a moment, before nodding."Yes. I think I had best." He admits, reaching into his pack and withdrawing a Quick Ball and his Geodude's ball.The Rowlet is well and truly distracted right now, so when Gareth throws, it disappears and clicks almost immediately before vanishing.Gareth lets out a breath and grins."Alright, we're a pretty long way from camp now." He says, sobering. "I think we ought to start heding back now. I mean, I can still make out the girls from here, but still. No need to go tempting fate on winding up in a fight with a powerful pokemon.">Just a little longer.>Yeah, we can come back another time.>Other

You agree, before blinking and calling on your own aura as your breathing takes on a meditative quality.The forest lights up around you with the varigated auras of pokemon everywhere:In the trees, in the brush, sleeping in burrows or in hollows or out on the prowl looking for food.You see the Skwovet colony again, outlined in grey and yellow, while the Seedot are green.You spy sleeping Budew clustered at the base of another tree and just as you're getting close to the camp...Another Rowlet.This one seems to be interested in what you had for dinner, as it's standing just at the edge of the campsite, apparently debating whether to chance trying to get some food.>Leave it be.>Leave a bowl for it.>Try catch it.>Try invite it to the group.>Other
I hope Team Green hasn't wrecked our home yet... >>5412577>Try invite it to the group.>Leave a bowl for it.The little guy will probably like us. Even if we don't catch him, it's nice being nice with the wild 'mons.
>>5412584+1Also if it's female then we have a mate for Rascal.
>>5412619Good idea. But we'll need Kathryn's help to figure out the basics of poke-breeding 101 (or just dump them in a Day-Care, but I bet Rascal will hate it).
>>5412584>>5412619>>5412627>>5412647You go on to the camp unconcerned before ladling out some of the stew you had for dinner before going and leaving the bowl about equidistant between the fire where you're sitting and where this Rowlet is watching in the bushes before going back to your place by the fire."You know there're Skwovet that live around here, right?" Fie asks. "Because that's how you get Skwovet. And Ratata.""I know." You assure. "There's a Rowlet just on the edge of the camp." You explain."Really?" Fie says, perking up, before repositioning herself a little to watch the bowl without it being obvious.>Join her in watching.>You like Rowlet, huh?>Don't go scaring the little guy off.>Other

"Got a great big plushie at home. You'll know it when you see it when we get there." She adds, mirroring your lowered voice.It takes a few minutes, but the Rowlet does eventually come into the edge of the firelight and starts pecking at the bowl with gusto."Poor thing's starving." Fie says quietly. "Looks kind of undergrown as well.""Runt of the litter?" You guess."Maybe." Fie says, frowning.>What's on your mind.>Catch Rowlet.>Other

>>5414996>>5415017>>5415020"I'm going to try make friends." You say in an undertone."Good luck." Fie says, before you carefully start moving forward.Unfortunately, this Rowlet seems to be rather skittish and not interested in making friends so much as food and flutters off into the bush leaving the bowl half finished."Damn."

You say, shaking your head."Probably." Fie agrees. "It's still remarkable the little guy came out to begin with. Rowlet are really skittish." She notes."You think he might've been abandoned?""It's possible." Fie concedes."I guess I'll have to try again some other time if he's still here.""Mm. Anyway, it's late. Let's get some sleep." She suggests.>Just a little longer. (Roll)>You're right. Let's turn in.>Clean up the food to avoid Skwovets.>Other

She says, impressed, patting your shoulder, before leaving you to your own training while she goes to drill her team.You release Blitz and do some basic warm-ups with him before realising you haven't actually thought about what you're going to do with him this morning.>Do speed drills>Do strength drills.>Do endurance drills.>Finish learning Crunch.>Learn another move.>Other
>>5416130>Finish learning Crunch.
>>5416130>Finish learning Crunch.Better to focus on something he almost learned,>>5416092Being a martial-arts guy helps too.

>>5416141>>5416138>>5416135Guys I urge you to reconsider.Failing to learn Crunch is what put Blitz out of commission last time.The reason given by OP is that he hasn't grown enough to learn an overly powerful move.So trying again without leveling up is high risk.
>>5416155Shit, forgot about that.>>5416130Changing my vote from >>5416141 to >Learn another move.
>>5416155>>5416160What about>Asking Fie if Blitz have grown enough for Crunch
>>5416155Ok, I thought since OP put it as a option it would be fine.>Learn another move.But truth will always be that she got hurt because of a crit fail
>>5416155Good catch.>>5416178The reason I put finishing learning Crunch as an option, is because I want there to be opportunities for Alex to screw up organically. (Potentially)So, occasionally, there'll be an option that could go badly if a roll goes particularly poorly, or you're not careful.After all, what's a story without some stakes and danger every now and then?That being said, everyone's been playing really smart, so it's not come up too much.
>>5416191>That being said, everyone's been playing really smart, so it's not come up too much.And I'm the first surprised at that; it's /qst after all.Nobody took the Holly bait; and I'm pretty sure things would have been catastrophic with Fie afterwards.
>>5416191Alright chief, I'll be on the lookout for trap options from now on. Atleast until I immediately forget>>5416196Anons have been surprisingly mature about all of it, I was expecting to be a chorus for a harem instead.
>>5416196OP did say the harem route was a possibility but only with the right maneouvering.That being said the reason why Alex snapped out of it was:>not wanting to hurt both Holly and Fie that way>not wanting to use a moment of weakness from Holly who clearly needs to become independent first
>>5416155>>5416152+1 On Learning Morning Sun.Use Aura sight to observe the process during training.Maybe we can also pick it up.
>>5416161Not a bad idea, but there's still too much of a risk involved given how low of a level Blitz is. Although we could ask Fie if we can train our teams together.>>5416355>can dragon dance>knows capoeira>has aura powers>knows capoeiraYeah, I'm down for basically becoming as strong as a pokemon.
>>5416373OP basically confirmed Aura training or Innate Psychics are just humans that are able to use Pokemon moves.We should definitely question Gareth more about it and ask if there was any scientific research done in regards to this.We should also take the tame to learn an aura move mimicking Protect or at least Iron Defense.
>>5416160>>5416178>>5416355You're tempted to try and continue training Blitz on Crunch, but after what happened last time, you think better of it and go to your pokedex instead to look at other moves.There's a pretty decent selection there, but after how Crunch went, you decide to stick to some less 'powerful' moves for the time being.The only question is where to start.Moves Known:BiteHowlEmberLeerRoarFire Fang>Teach Blitz Flame Wheel>Teach Blitz Agility>Teach Blitz Incinerate>Teach Blitz Flame Burst>Teach Blitz Odor Sleuth>Teach Blitz Rock Smash>Teach Blitz Morning Sun>Other

>>5417246Thank Arceus Blitz has Flashfire, he nearly set himself on fire.
>>5417235>>5417236>>5417246You decide that all things considered, a healing move wouldn't be a bad idea for Blitz, so you decide to go with Morning Sun.It seems simple enough.As it turns out, it isn't.You get the feeling this would probably be easier for Syurm to figure out, but as you watch the clip through a few times with Blitz before attempting it, you get the feeling this might be a little advanced for him.A fact borne out as he doesn't so much as glow during the whole half hour you try and practice the move."What are you doing over here?" Fie asks curiously as she comes over, evidently taking a break from her sparring with Cinder."Trying to teach Blitz Morning Sun." You explain."Is he hurt?" Fie asks with the barest hint of a smile."No... shit." You clap your forehead as you realise that that's probably half your problem right there."Yeah, Morning Sun is kind of a fiddly move to teach." Fie agrees. "If you don't have access to some [i]very[/i] restricted specialist equipment, it's a downright pain in the ass.">Do you have access to this equipment?>Ugh. Let's try something else.>Mind helping somehow? Maybe a mock battle?>Whatever. Let's get breakfast ready.>Other
>>5417397>Do you have access to this equipment?
>>5417397>I'm assuming you don't have the equipment on you either right?>>Mind helping somehow? Maybe a mock battle?>OtherAlso would having Syrum show off Synthesis work to get the initial feel for it? I know it's a different process but the initial start for both is taking some power from sunlight.
Update tomorrow.I'm dog tired and really can't come up with anything decent to write today.

>>5417406>>5417410>>5417414"I'm assuming you don't have the equipment on you." You more state than ask.Fie shakes her head."No, although I do have a set up at my gym." She says.That's definitely something worth keeping in mind."Mind helping somehow? A mock battle, maybe?" You ask after a moment's thought.Fie brightens."That sounds like a good idea." She agrees. "I've not really done much actual battling with Skrelp, so the experience would be good."A course of action decided upon, the two of you move to a clear area, Fie releases Skrelp and at your call, Blitz happily trots into position.>Let Fie move first.>Go first.>See who breaks first.

>>5419311>>5419322>>5419324"Skrelp, Water Gun. Tone it back a little." Fie orders as she waits for you to make a move, only to take the hint as you wait for her to move.Skrelp blasts Blitz with a gentle stream of water that makes him recoil and yelp, but he's not actually that badly hurt by it."Bite." You order as you blink and call upon your aura, seeing the familiar outlines superimposed on your vision as Blitz bounds forward and nips Skrelp as you ordered, apparently picking up on the fact this is effectively rough housing instead of a serious fight.Both Skrelp and Blitz are still plenty energetic and healthy after the exchange.>Time to practice Morning Sun (Roll)>Just focus on the battle, such as it is.>OtherMoves:BiteHowlEmberLeerRoarFire Fang

>>5419509Well we have a 17,95 and 66.Seems like he learned well enough.
>>5419512That's fair. Though at that point we may as well take out our entire team and do some dodging/accuracy drills.
>>5419467>>5419491>>5419508"Alright Blitz, let's try Morning Sun again." You say.He barks, before beginning to glow and as you watch, his aura regains the vibrant green of a pokemon at the peak of their stamina again."Awesome work!" You cheer.Fie has Skrelp cycle Water Gun a few more times while you have Blitz do the same with Morning Sun just to make sure he's got the move down, but he performs it without issue and by the time Holly and Gareth are exiting their tents, you and Fie are winding down after a rather productive mock battle."Phew, not a bad morning's work, all things considered." Fie says cheerfully as you dish out last night's dinner for breakfast. "Morning Sun is kind of niche and kind of hard to learn, but you really do have a talent for training." She adds."Thanks." You reply, feeling rather warm and fuzzy at the compliment.>Do some more training after breakfast.>Just go. Saltcoast City awaits.>Other
>>5419524>>Just go. Saltcoast City awaits.Let's have Blitz walk with us instead of returning him to the pokeball.He's an active fella so a good walk is a decent reward for him.

>>5419526>>5419533>>5419833>>5419836You eat quickly and pack up camp within the hour before hitting the road again, letting Blitz out to walk beside you as you focus on making distance.This close to the first real goal you've had for this journey, you're not in the mood for dawdling or sight-seeing.Once you've reached the city, then you can worry about sightseeing and whatever else you're going to do when you get there, but for now, you've got to get there.>Roll.

>>5420300>>5420303>>5420306It takes you most of the day, but around 4PM, you make it out of the hills to see Saltcoast unrolled before you.It's not exactly an Alolan paradise, but it's pretty damn close and from your vantage point, you can see the southern most of the Barrier Islands out to the north."What d'you think?" Fie asks, looking between you, Gareth and Holly expectantly.>Yeah, wow.>I always thought this place was more like Hau'oli City as a kid. This is... a little disappointing.>I'm thinking I'm looking forward to going to the beach.>Other

You reply after a moment's thought.Fie actually laughs at this."Yeah, that's everyone's first instinct when they see Saltcoast City." She agrees. "For the time being, I'm thinking it'll be nice to be back home." She adds. "And don't worry, there'll be room enough for everyone." She assures.With this cheering prospect, you set off down the road into the city proper.The sun's gone down by the time Fie leads you to the gym, though the city hasn't slowed down any.There're people out partying or having dinner or working overtime in some cases, while in front of the gym proper, you're met by nearly a dozen figures dressed in black bloc.>Looks like we are getting a battle in today.>Oh good grief, is this just going to be a thing in every town?>Sigh...>Other

You say as you release Syurm and Kay O-o to join Blitz, who, while tired from the work has gotten in front of you defensively as a four of the thugs release pokemon of their own while their fellows move to hem you in.She nods and releases her Swablu, while Fie releases Cinder and Gareth does the same with Mien and Druddigon.Arrayed against you are what you're beginning to recognise as the standard for Team Green: Grass and Dark types.You see a Breloom, a Houndour, a Gloom and a Liepard.>No ceremony.
