Sequel to >>5462281Light filters in slowly in your room, and despite how tired you are, the unceasing brightness stirred you awake... right into the gave of two violet eyes.You scream, leaping back... off your bed , back crashing into the floor admis a tangle work of bedsheets and fear. The woman... a "Carrie" from what you were told, simply continues staring at you, even as you gibber and wriggle.You are named Gurie Niamic, you are the 21 year old psychic daughter of crime boss Roger Niamic, head of Team Lazy, and now are locked in Rose's Academy for the Apologetic, a prison with a coating of school paint for "Rehabilitation". So far all you've done is play video games, get peeped on (allegedly), and face off against a pokemon assassin... so things are going great!And now your room mate is staring you down, some one armed girl upperclassman you never talked to.She points a finger at you. "You are Gurie Niamic right? From the door?"She must be referring to your nameplate, since you havent DONE any door related crimes yet...>Um... no?>What are you going to do!>Accuse her of being a pervert (It worked yesterday)
>>5469811You shouldn't have made a new thread. Your first hasn't even left the 1st page. It is going to stay up for longer than a month still. And you can only make 5 threads at once on this board, making new threads so early will bite you in the ass pretty quicky though that only happens cause one fate quest was taking up most of the board due to autism. It's wise and just polite to use a thread as long as possible.
>>5469832Like, lately the board has been so slow some threads remain on the board for nearly two full months. You used the last thread for a week. Your first thread won't even be half way to Dropping off the board before you reach the limit of threads created and will either need to stick with one or habe your quest be put on hold for around a month because of it.Not trying to be mean, just trying to give advice here.
>>5469811>What are you going to do!But >>5469832 is right.
>>5469811>>Accuse her of being a pervert (It worked yesterday)"And you're the sick perv sitting there drooling over my feet while you thought I was sleeping, right?" You bluff, hoping to throw the new girl off balance.
>>5469833Oh. And I feel obligated to mention, threads can become unusable faster than before they get close to falling off the board . But that only happens when you near or surpass 3000 posts. Which is an extreme rarity, at least presently.
>>5469811Agree with >>5469833, would recommend not changing threads till hitting the bump limit. Also>This person is clearly a perv, why else would they be trying to room with a COOL BEAUTY like yourself?
>>5469832>>5469833So back in MY day the old thread wouldve saged by now.Thats the opposite of a flex i had threads like "Hex maniac chapter 13 part 4" so im not used to actually keeping chapters seperate...I DID try to delete the thread and move the post but I was too slow... Hard whopsies.>>5469852Like i remember the autosage being what... 100 posts?
>>5469872Oh no worries. Quests used to be fast as fuck, especially in the /tg/ Era. But here it's different, and everything is slow as balls and it's expected for there to be one update everyday or every couple of days or even once a week or longer.Threads autosage after 5 days. It just doesn't matter. Cause even when the board is unusually active, threads will stick around for around 30 days and it's common to use them until they reach page 10 or have been on page 10 for a few days since theres no danger of it getting pushed off the board without warning.. However, very active/fast threads will be abandoned earlier, but as I said that's rare, cause for a thread to begin to collapse under its own weight you need close to 3000 posts for it to begin to be unusably leggy, though that happens sooner for phoneposters It's just cause the board is slow. It is slower now than it usually is, so this thread and the first will, unless there's a burst of new threads or several, will last until January, give or take a few daysReally, the only danger is a mod going rogue and deleting your thread for no reason. That happened to a few quests a couple of months ago.
>>5469884Eh itll be fine ill just rebuild. Things were slow before but honestly this thread is going relatively fast... which i guess lets you know how big i was! or... wasnt?Accusations won, time to brat.
>>5469811Hang on a sec, isn't it supposed to be "Robert" Niamc?
You panic, your trapped in bedsheets, and you aren't sure if Mimikyu's going to be trusted to fight for you if Carrie puts you into a scrap... Your fight and flight responses trigger.And for some reason, you really only have a fight response."W-w-what's the big idea pervert!"She blinks.... wink? One of her eyes doesnt seem to work quite right. "Pervert?""Yeah! Don't you know its against the law to stare at woman when they sleep? What are you trying to do? What those hands... hand! I got my eyes on you. I can report you if you didn't know!""Oh... but we are already in prison?" She seems more confused then anything. "So... what happens when you report me?"You... don't know."Something bad!!" You lie. "You'll get detention! A lot of it!""...well I don't want to be arrested. Or to make you upset." She stares at you. "Do you... need help?""No." You sulk wiggling out of the tangle. "I am a threat. I don't need your help, or for you to get your paw on me Miss Gropers I can wiggle out of this myself. Turn around."She actually does and you eventually manage to stand up. Out of your sheets and just in your prison uniform, which is still not your ugly ass school outfit.>Interrogate her! Why is she in your room and trying to get a peepshow>Leave, you have a mimikyu to interrogate and a scary girl to ignore>Now that shes not a threat... try to figure out why shes here in a non hostile manner>You arent going to talk to or hide or anything while your stinky and unshowered... they DO have private showers right? You dont want to have to take the entire thing invisible... again.>>5469913Roger is his name, he looks like Robert "Robbie" Rotten and sometimes i get it wrong.TBF if anyone would have a fake name its your dad.
>>5469919>You arent going to talk to or hide or anything while your stinky and unshowered... they DO have private showers right? You dont want to have to take the entire thing invisible... again.
>>5469919>>You arent going to talk to or hide or anything while your stinky and unshowered... they DO have private showers right? You dont want to have to take the entire thing invisible... again.
>>5469919>You arent going to talk to or hide or anything while your stinky and unshowered... they DO have private showers right? You dont want to have to take the entire thing invisible... again.a nice shower to start the day.I'm very interested in talking to (totally not DMNPC) mimikyu, but we should be normal roommates.We should also introduce her to Tom
>>5469919>Now that shes not a threat... try to figure out why shes here in a non hostile manner
>>5469967>>5469939>>5469922You are going to say more... but... you realize... you feel gross. Not sick... GROSS! You are dirty!You used to have baths, daily, with scents and oils you arent used to roughing it, and the... roughly thirty hours of panic attacks and no hygiene has made your body feel like its been dipped in oil. You feel rancid."Um... wheres the shower?" You ask Carrie, you will finish this... LATER."Bottom floor." She points down.You nod and take your uniform and head down... and she's following you. You start walking down faster, and so does she. You run, she runs."Why are you chasing me!?" You shout behind you."I am following you! What if you get lost!" She yells back. And before you respond you are at the bottom floor.The bottom is way bigger then the higher floors, because this is the unisex part of the dorms.You peak into the showers and... well they are divided by gender at least... but they are public!You eep and stare at the door mustering your courage... as Carrie walks in.You hear a sound of a pokeball opening and a loud clamor as, after a few minutes a lot of angry red faced convict woman stomp off, still dripping as Carrie walks out of the shower and stares at you."Shower is open.">...what?>Oh cool, private shower>Carrie you can't do that! I am going to be called a bully!>Write in
>>5470020>Carrie you can't do that! I am going to be called a bully!>Oh cool, private shower>...why?in that order
>>5470020>...what?Man, this 'Call everyone a pervert' plan is working gangbusters. I'd be even cooler if we knew why.
>>5470020>Oh cool, private shower
>>5470020>>5470127If I'm allowed to change my vote I'll change it to>...why?>Oh cool, private showerCause it might be funnier if she doesn't know why it's bad to kick out everyone from the showers.
So i see 3 choices for getting a cool free shower and then asking wtf is going on. Makin dinner... and then... WRITING!!!
Sorry long dinner. Watching Defunctland.You look at the scrambling woman, some of whom arent even clothed just in towels. This... could cause some problems... But you know what. That's fine. You deserve a private shower, you used to get baths. You need to take what you can while it's there to take.You hop in the shower, and let the warm water wash your worries away.Though, not too many worries. Your nerves keep you from relaxing too much, you dont want those woman rushing back while you are still here.You quickly towel off, once you are soaped and rinsed, and finally put on the damn uniform.Its stripes are garish and the opposite of slimming... but at least they are comfortable.You aren't a brat, you just know what you deserve.Honest.You head out and... wow Carrie is STILL waiting for you.Okay you will bite. "Um... Carrie... why are you nice to me?"She turns to you. "Should I not be?""NO! No, of course you should be nice to me I am great... but... it's not like I've been great to YOU, I mean we haven't met... are you really a pervert."She shakes her head, though you catch a blush. "No its... your dad.""...My dad?" Is she... a pervert to your dad? Shes a bit young to be your second mom! And you HAVE A MOM."...I...Want to join Team Lazy!">Oh. Okay, welcome aboard.>...Why?>... you know, im just his daughter, Im not actually in Team Lazy.>Write in
>>5470302Big question: is our answer to this actually determining our in-universe involvement, or just our feelings towards our position in Team L? (just realized that could be shorthand kek)Also, given our position as mafioso daughter, would we be able to just fiat her into the team down the line even if we don't have any real involvement?
>>5470391Whatever you say... you arent ACTUALLY a official member of the team, you got arrested for suspected involvement, but you mostly got the benefit of it.Its the classic tale of a Mobster trying not to drag his family into his own messes.The police however, saw you as a hostage, and so your locked up.You can promise to send a good word, or even form your own branch of it. But you were not arrested for your involvement in the team.What you know of Team Lazy is... its a lot more Skull and Rocket then Galactic or Magma. The Goal of Team Lazy is to "Create a world where everyone can be lazy and not work." Your father and his team work really hard to do nothing. It used to be simply things like... stealing candy, and occasionally giving away free toys they stole from trucks.Nowadays they keep attacking construction trying to set up gyms and send imposters faking to be gym leaders and generally fucking with the PTC's ability to induct Orre into the group.
>>5470409Imposters you say?In something like... a disguise?Hmm...>>5470302>You know, I'm just his daughter>But uh... for what it's worth? Welcome aboard!
>>5470409Huh, interesting.>>5470302>...Why?>You know, I'm just his daughter.>I'll try to put in a good word for you and back your case. Can't promise they'll accept though.Either way it's good to know her reasoning. I'm wondering is she believes in their mantra or if there's any other purpose.
>>5470413Yes.Your father once impersonated the mayor, which if you may recall... is not really without precedent in Orre. However he had that position for like, months, while the big push for Aether to come in and "Revitilize" the countinent was happening.He passed laws! Big fancy renovation laws that aether spent a lot of money "suggesting" to various people, filled with tax loopholes and allowances... and no one really noticed when he just, snipped a few punctuations here and there, changed a word's spelling...When a law was passed that mandated that it was illegal to end recess, Roger was finally caught after a trail forced someone to actually notice.And since no one could gurantee WHAT he changed... years of law and permits were just... undone. And Aether had to start all over.Oh and the guy they arrested turned out not to be Roger, but a man pretending to be Roger pretending to be the mayor! He just switched them out!That mans probbably at this school actually...The law HATES your father.So, so very much.
>>5470419This is basically what I was going for with >>5470413, supporting
>>5470419Time to write. This is what passed.
>>5470423>our dad is pretty much LITERALLY Robbie RottenLove it.
>>5470409>You know, I'm just his daughter>But uh... for what it's worth? Welcome aboard!
I have a feeling that the Warden is actually our dad in disguise. There really isn't any evidence to support it, but hey.
>>5470302>You know, I'm just his daughter>But uh... for what it's worth? Welcome aboard!Assuming vote isn't locked per >>5470500, supporting this.
>>5470528SURELY we would recognize our own father...Right?
>>5470563Oh yeah, definitely at least I think so. But he could be using some sort of illusion magic, though I'm mostly grasping at straws here.
"...Why?" Listen, your dads the best. They give you everything you want. They let you stay out of school! They got you out of soccer practice when your mom signed you up... but Team Lazy isnt exactly a place you can just laze around in!Also you know... she IS in Dusknoir Row with you. She MAY be a insane serial killer so... you need to verify you can trust this lady. Or your dad can.Shes still blushing so... she probably ISN'T scarlet because you are just that cute... probbably. "I... I just admire them! The outfits! The schemes! The dream! The abbility to never have to work... to never listen to anyone else! Isn't that worth fighting for? Isn't that worth signing up for?""...So you want to work for me so you can never work for anyone?""...Well, its a little more involved then that... I just..." Her eye darts to you, until she shifts it away. "...My life could've done with a lot more laziness in it. I thought well... if I help you, Roger's daughter, I thought... well. I'd get that."Ooooooh. "So you think if you help me out NOW you will get paid for it."She shrugs, the empty sleeve on her right arm shuffling. "It is a little more involved. But that does help. I like your father Gurie. I like what he does. If you are my ticket into the big leagues with him, I am happy to help.""Um..." This is a little awkward. "About that... I am just his daughter... I mean it's not like he wasn't there for me or anything, but he tried pretty hard to keep me out of his business. You know, he didn't want any of us to get roped with a criminal record when we were still kids and all... So I can't really officially induct you... but... well I have a record now... so I guess... I'll give you my endorsement.You gesture around the tower. "This school... well this prison, thinks it can force everyone to being goody too shoes wage slaves! Look at how they run the Second Chanseys. I think its the perfect place to start a NEW Team Lazy! And I think it's time I join the family business."You pause and start to feel stupid. "Um... I don't mean that I am replacing my dad, but like.. theres no team lazy here so... we are franchising? pleasejoin."The woman gives a soft chuckle. "Alright, boss. She gives you the L sign with her one hand. "Nothing to do."You sign back. "And all day to do it.">You got your first member of Team Lazy (Rose Branch), Bird Tamer Carrie Crow has now joined your team."So..." You hear a lot of footprints. Those shower ladies probbably went and got their pokemon. "We should get going."She nods.Your name is Gurie Niamic, class's start in a hour and you are HIDING from the other girls in your dorm... for now at least. You'll figure out something, you always do.But what you need to figure out now is... what are you going to do?>You can squeeze a interrogation in a hour, at least some of it, bother Mimikyu! Get the skinny.>You need a new pokeball! Go hunt one down, you already know how to break into the janitors office.
>>5470581>Just get ready for class, its a hour, you can nap.>Get breakfast! It's probbably awful but its still food! And its the only meal where you are allowed to eat pastries.>Find Tom, now that your assembling a new gang, or at least pretending to, you should probably talk to them. She's still Tom and all but like, that doesn't mean you cant be nice.
>>5470581>>5470583>Find Tom, now that your assembling a new gang, or at least pretending to, you should probably talk to them. She's still Tom and all but like, that doesn't mean you cant be nice.>Get breakfast! It's probbably awful but its still food! And its the only meal where you are allowed to eat pastries.
>>5470591Those arent votes those are options to vote on, what are you supporting?
>>5470589Im going to bed, its thanksgiving so i'll have more time to dedicate to this. So far this is winning. Congrats QuMwPqvG
>>5470595Oh, woops, didn't notice that was still you, Mimikyu. Guess I'm not used to seeing a selection of options divided between two posts.>>5470581>>5470583>Get breakfast! It's probbably awful but its still food! And its the only meal where you are allowed to eat pastries.>Find Tom, now that your assembling a new gang, or at least pretending to, you should probably talk to them. She's still Tom and all but like, that doesn't mean you cant be nice.These two, sleep in as well if possible. Just five more minutes?
>>5470581Supporting >>5470589Tom is our trusted and loyal companion who may or may not be in here for sex offender reasons (this is a joke)Also let's talk over breakfast, never miss the opportunity to eat food while you're talking to someone, the first rule of being lazy is being efficient!
>>5470595Yeah next time you could try and keep all of the options are in one post so people don't get confused.Supporting >>5470589
>>5470581>>You need a new pokeball! Go hunt one down, you already know how to break into the janitors office.Always have a pokeball up. We never know what we can stumble into.We have a fast physical offensive pokemon. A special attacker offensive pivot or a defensive pivot can be nice.I think either Rotom-wash or slowbro (Mega-slowbro?) can be nice.
>>5470583> Get breakfast! It's probbably awful but its still food! And its the only meal where you are allowed to eat pastries.
>>5470770Mimi carry dw
>>5470754I ran out of space.
anyway tomtime, time to write. stay in school
You decide that, after all the hustle and havoc of the morning, and what is assuredly going to be a even worse class time... that you need sweets. Sugar is a CRITICAL part of any diet your dad taught you that!Unfortunately as you head out of the dorms and into the common area where the mess hall is... the big scary ogre man doesn't GIVE you sweets, or even a egg sandwhich.You get a pile of oatmeal, not even boiled in milk its just water and and starch! And a cup of black coffee, the epitome of everything you stand against religiously. You are a hot cocoa girl and nothing else! Except for milk, and soda. But you do not compromise on hot drinks with this caffinated bitterbomb.You... say nothing and slink off, maybe later but your not super great at confrontations, especially when your neck is in arms length from living construction equipment.You seek out a table to sit alone in... and there isn't any... but there is one table where only one person is sitting... and its Tom! Great!You slide your tray next to Tom who... glances up at you? (You can't tell, goggles) "So... Carrie didn't kill you Shouty.""She did not Tom." You poke the oatmeal, it blurps at you threateningly. You think it might be a grimer.>Eat in blissful awkward silence>So... listen Tom, I do owe you, so... how can i pay you back, for a lot of things.>Why ARE you nice to me? I am definitely not nice back.>Why DOES the food suck so bad here anyway? They have pamphlets about how this is supposed to be a nice enviroment?
>>5471068>Why DOES the food suck so bad here anyway? They have pamphlets about how this is supposed to be a nice enviroment?It's kind of sad how we're probably Tom's only friend, or at least the only one that talks to her often.
>>5471068>Why ARE you nice to me? I am definitely not nice back.sus
>>5471068Carrie didn't come with us for breakfast?
>>5471068>>5471083>>5471093Both of these, these are good things to know
>>5471068>So... listen Tom, I do owe you, so... how can i pay you back, for a lot of things.
>>5471068>Why DOES the food suck so bad here anyway? They have pamphlets about how this is supposed to be a nice environment?>Anyway, wanna' join my prison gang?>>5471097I'm also surprised.>>5470986My suggestion is to divide a post like that up in such a way that all the vote options end up together. It's what I do in my quest.
>>5471153I would also like to invite Tom to Team L, but think that is definitely an after breakfast task
>>5471093>sushttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X62PyiW3VI please make it stop >>5471099Changing my vote to this.
My bad everyone, i said i wouldnt have work but i got called in anyway! So NOW I can update. Hard whoopsies.>>5471097>>5471153I really should have mentioned it IC, its something like this:Carrie, as you head down to the lunchroom, starts to take a turn to the left. "I... have business to take care of." She says, nodding to her own statement like shes convincing herself. "Wait, I thought you wanted to join my team, what other business can you have?"She continues walking, gesturing to the hallway you came from. "Their are... people who are mad at me right now. They don't know I am on your team yet... I do not want to be a burden on you. So soon?"Is this about the shower thing? By the time you phrase the question she's taken off.It's a little frustrating, you're supposed to be team leader but your team (All 1 member) is hiding the fact you exist. It's like your not tough enough to be the boss yet.But then again, you haven't really DONE much with Carrie to prove otherwise... And Carrie could be doing worse then babying you.
>>5471153This, but instead of "join my crew" I'll change to>I'm mounting a prison gang. You want in? Provide me a pokeball. Not yours, you'll have to craft or find it.
So one vote for thsi>>5471145Two for this>>5471099Two for this>>5471153And one for this:>>5471295So far a bit of a tie, so ill just take the average for now and do the food one.
You poke the gruelish oatmeal with your spoon, its sticky and stodgy and not very watery... which you guess is... good? What qualifies "good oatmeal"? "So Tom... why does all the food here suck?""Hmm?" She swallows a spoonful of her own and looks at you. "What do you want the one with little tyrunt eggs?""Was... was that a option?" You ask as Tom nods."Yeah, though I suppose it makes sense you wouldn't have been able to get it." She reaches into one of her many many pockets and pulls out small cylinders of paper, red and white. "Rose uses a Point system. You can get points for impressing the teachers and use it for various privileges. Like Meal tickets."You look at the cylinders in Pockets finger. "Wait... are those smokes?"She shakes her head, her goggles flashing you briefly when the lamplight reflects off it. "Not really. Its just a token for trading. You aren't supposed to have anything digital you know.""...wait you have a switch, and those goggles?"Her goggles twinkle. "I am a very good girl you know! All they had to do was disable the wifi capability... which is fine because I prefer cartridges!""But you needed a new dorm? Why did you need one if you've already been here?""Oh I got moved to a different house." She shrugs. "I used to be in the choke crew.">...How did you end up on Dusknoir row? 1d100 social roll>So... listen Tom, I do owe you, so... how can i pay you back, for a lot of things.>Why ARE you nice to me? I am definitely not nice back.>Listen I am forming a gang... can you join it?>Listen I am forming a gang and if you want in... I need a pokeball, you got all sortofs of machines I know you know where one is!
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>5471341>...How did you end up on Dusknoir row? 1d100 social roll>Why ARE you nice to me? I am definitely not nice back.

>>5471366>>5471353>>5471347Well guess thats pretty unanimous. WRiting.
"You ended UP here? Why?" Tom stops eating and stares at you... or well, it looks like it through the goggles. And wow they are red. "I killed a guard.""...What?""You were going to hear it from someone." She shrugs. "He was all the prisoner's 'good guy', the one who would sneak things in from outside and do favors for you. And I electrocuted him with a Joltik." She frowns. "And they confiscated all my joltik too.""...Why?""You wouldn't care." She looks at her bowl of brightly colored gloop. "No one else did."Um... wow, that's... heavy, you aren't sure what to say about that... so... you need to change the subject... smooth like."Hey if your a remorseless murderer, why are you nice to me?" Oh wait you forgot you are objectively terrible."I mean... you helped me get to bed, you helped me with the Mimikyu thing... and like, I just call you names.""...I felt someone had to. Besides you are the only one who still talks to me.">Oh...um...good?>So... do you want to join my gang?>Listen, I dont know who this guard is, but... you seem pretty cool>Change the subject to something cool and better>Chew in silence>...Can you get me a pokeball.>.... ... so... those Tyrunt eggs... what do they taste like?
>>5471469>Oh...um...good?>.... ... so... those Tyrunt eggs... what do they taste like?>So... do you want to join my gang?Didn't know you had it in you Tom.
>>5471487You know she had to do it to them.
>>5471469>Oh...um...good?>.... ... so... those Tyrunt eggs... what do they taste like?>So... do you want to join my gang?
>>5471469Ever think its weird we eat pokemon but they are so much stonger then us and still smart?
>>5471469>Oh...um...good?>...Can you get me a pokeball.I think we shouldn't ask Tom to join yet, she needs to volunteer herself. (Or we can pressure her to join later as a reward for the pokeball acquisition quest)
>>5471550>>5471487You... arent sure what to talk about anymore. "Oh... cool, I guess." You thought Tom was more a... funny quirky pervert. Now you feel... well you don't feel bad.. but maybe yucky? Oh wait. That's the oatmeal.You look at Tom's clearly nicer oatmeal, with little sugar tyrunts floating in blue milk. "...What does that oatmeal taste like?"That gets Tom's attention, they look at you. "You've... never had Oatquake Tyrunt oatmeal? But... your old. And... rich?"You shrug. "All I ate for breakfast was pastries. Ursa Claws and Poffins. My dad really likes sweets.""Oh... your dad sounds cool... You want to try some?" You nod and she takes a big spoonful and plops it into your bowl.You eat it and its SO MUCH sweeter then the nasty stuff you got. Its got this vague suggestion someone... well didnt USE apple but maybe the oatmeal saw a apple once? It's got that kind of taste."You know, your a pretty cool gal Tom... Want to join my gang?""...Your what?">Oh um... I am forming a gang with Carrie! Turns out shes a big fan of my dad's crew>I am forming a coalition to protect members from dumb stuff like being made to work>Um... my gang? Team Lazy? You know my famous dad?>Oh um that's a stupid question... nevermind>>5471598Yes but these arent real eggs.
>>5471624>Oh um... I am forming a gang with Carrie! Turns out shes a big fan of my dad's crew
>>5471624>Carrie is pretty cool and you are too! Join up now for a super cool low-number on the Rose Division membership card!>Also... The name Tom has really grown on me but I don't want to be mean, do you mind if I keep using it or do you prefer a different name?
>>5471624All of the above, in that order, overexcited in the beginning and then trailing off autistically before Tom has a chance to respond
>>5471624>>5471685Support. Seems like a nice Gurie moment.
I am going to bed!!!Tomorrow I have work, which i didnt realize but now i do, but i do not wensday. And of course i will update tonight.Um... something to hold you over... um...Did you know I had plans where like, I gave each pokemon type a skill a la Disco Elysium and was going to make a elysium quest? I didnt go through with it but some of the notes are used for this... But im not sure what to use the skills on.Maybe a side quest.

>>5471683>>5471846I think it's better if we keep calling her Tom. We are a Gang Lord, we need to keep up appearances, and nicknames and code names are surely what organized crime works by.
>>5471685Switching to this
>>5471846I'd also like to mention the Tom thing, but don't want to overcrowd a post.
>>5471685Alright I am back, sipping my Red bull sugar free, and this is da winner!Writing.
"Oh, you know my gang! I am forming one with Carrie!" You lean forward, excited at your great plan. "Turns out, shes a big fan of my dad! So I am continuing his work! We are going to form a coalition to protect the world from boring work and let everyone be as lazy as they want! You know? Team Lazy? Work hard for a future where they can be hardly working! Fight for the working man's right to just be a man? Actually wait no one in it is a man we are all girls I guess that slogan doesn't work nevermind its a dumb idea." Slowly you deflate until you are also poking at your oatmeal. "No one wants to work for shouty little Gurie, why did I come up with this idea? Why am I even alive? I should ju-The bell rings. The guards start walking around the tables. "Alright plates away, time for class. No lollygagging."You get dragged off into a different line then Tom and, after a lot of stammering and shoves, you end up swept by the tide of social obligation.~~~~~~~~"Greetings dear students." A tall thin men in red round glasses sits behind a desk, staring at every student at the same time. "My name is Mister Noah. I shall be your..." His fingers, rubberbound, drum against the podium. "Biology professor.""I get plenty of biology in the showers teach!" Someone yells in the back, to the sound of hi fives.You do not turn around, your glued to his face, his frown is there for a second but it stretches his skull in such a ghastly way. "Yes... how... cute. Allow me to change the curriculum then. Mr Hartwell appears to think you are all ready for the... advanced class."The teacher taps his glasses and things to bright red and you hear the chortles slow to a choke. "That... my dear friends. Is the move Glare. Used by serpentine pokemon. It causes the enemy to be paralyzed. Fortunately as a teacher I have a few poketools to simulate these things... for my own protection."He smiles and its all teeth, no lips. "Now Class... Mr Hartwell is finding it hard to move... do you think there are any other effects that this condition could have affected Hartwell with?">"He's... slow?">HA as if your answering a question nonono>Whimper in your chaireither way d100 to not be terrified of Mister Noah.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>5472603Hartwell seems like a good guy to have on our side, actually. I never minded my own strict teachers as long as they were.... fair.>He's slow, and I'm not being funny, I can see that it's taking him twice as long to perform actions since he's so twitchy after that Glare
>>5472635Hartwell got paralyzed. You mean Mister Noah?
>>5472659Yeah my bad, I meant Judge DoomI mean uh, Mr. Noah, yeah
>>5472635I was waiting for more audience but I suspect that we have quiet because no one wants to mess with a 99. Writing.
>>5472753>no one wants to mess with a 99You got that right.
You raise your hand. Sure Noah is a little... okay hes VERY scary. But you recognize that scary, you handled ghosts, you are USED to scary. "Mister Noah. I think Hartwell is slow...er. I don't mean he's stupid.""Oh, I would be less kind." Noah interjects to some chuckles as you shake your head. "I just mean his reactions are slower than normal, half of what they used to be?"Noah claps, smiling. "VERY good. Yes, Hartwell is paralyzed, his body alternates between sluggish and seized. And Glare is unique in that, electric moves such as nuzzle can be negated by the ground, stun spore is useless against vegatative pokemon like Bellsprout... and yet Glare, not so impacted. In terms of holding prey still, it is without much peer..."He walks towards Hartwell. You finally turning around to see the vic-student is some black belt. "And yet! It is used by ambush predators... well them and Dunsparce. Why do you think that would be?""...To keep pokemon from escaping.""Yes indeed Gurie, though few try. I posit a different theory. The Arbok, well, it is not the most vicious of predators. If a Tauros is prepared I imagine few Arbok will have much to eat... Their are nastier creatures in the forest... Take Hartwell."He lays a hand on Hartwell's shoulder, and the man sluggishly tries to grop at it. "He is quite fit, and is not wanting in malice towards me... Nor am I particularly muscular. This wrist of mine should he be able to lay his fingers on it, would likely not last long under Hartwell." He pats the mans shoulder. "Yet, he is unable to. The tide has shifted... " He pulls at his coat and reveals a collection of bottles and pokeballs, pulling a large green vial. "If I were to simply dip my finger in this liquified Venoshock." The gloved hand goes green. "And..." Hartwell's eyes widen as the claw gets closer to him. "And lay my fingers upon my prey..."The green goo slides on Hartwells face and he screams... and the goo slides off, landing on his orange shorts. "A jest. Merely lime gelatin. But you see how predation works." He walks to his desk with the poise of a corner at a burial. "Most of you I imagine are used to simply swinging for the fences with the strongest move with the strongest pokemon. Many pokemon have evolved to do just that... and many pokemon have evolved around such things as well."He taps the desk. "I may be the biology teacher here, but I am also the nurse on staff. It is my job to make sure you understand the tricks Pokemon, and their masters, may use on your pokemon, AND on you. If I fail to instruct, or you fail to learn..." He smiles. "Well, for the sake of my work life balance, I implore you to be cautious."He continues with his safety lecture, apparently a necessity before any of the "Fresh meats" (You apperantly) can get a pokemon. Even though you... well, have one already.The bell rings and people start to get up, Hartwell sullenly shoving books into his bag. "Oh... Gurie... A moment after class."1/2
There are some snickers as the class giggles at your apparent demise. You sit there silently as the room clears out. One at a time.The door finally closes and Noah taps his cane on the floor and you here a bzzt. "We are alone."You smile and run up to the cloaked man. "Uncle Nimra!"Lazy Admin Nimra Diggory holds his arms outstretched and embraces your hug. "Gurie, my dear... it is good to see you." His smile turns into a frown. "The circmunstances though..." He eyes the stripes on your uniform.You frown and break the hug. "Yeah... I didn't do anything wrong! They just spouted some babble about illegal curses and cuffed me on my way home."Nimrah, or "Noah" as his cover name appears to be, nods. "Well, you would not be the first." Nimrah Diggory or "Uncle Nimrah" is one of Lazy's Three 1s. Your dad named his three admins his "Number one Guy" even though there was three of them and two of them are girls. And also since they were under them his Number 1s werent actually number 1 in the team.According to Nimrah it was the thought that counts. The Number Ones are a fraternity with Roger first among equals, not TRUELY their master. It helps that Nimrah was the one you were the most fond of.That was because Nimrah lead the supply division! His team would 'accquire' the supplies that everyone else on the team used. Nimrah always had a knack for finding things and no matter what your dad and his friends needed, presents, food, rare pokeballs, Nimrah always had a way to acquire it. Nimrah was a little 'off' but VERY patient, and you were very off and only a little patient so among your "teachers" you got along with him best...And now hes your teacher in a prison.?You can only ask for 1 because the next class is in 10 minutes!>Why are you here?>How are the others?>...Listen, I need a pokeball>Some bedsheet monster called Mimikyu slipped into my pokeball when I was handed it!

>>5472871>Some bedsheet monster called Mimikyu slipped into my pokeball when I was handed it! It was very scary!!!>one of Lazy's Three 1s>we are number 1Now that's funny.
>>5472871>Some bedsheet monster called Mimikyu slipped into my pokeball when I was handed it - I need another before I get in troubleI'm assuming we'll get in trouble for already having a pokemon, at least. And if that's the case, we can catch up when we're not going to get in trouble.
>>5472871Cute, nice writing>Bedsheet monster
>>5472885Gonna be afk for a few hours so feel free to vote awaybut before i head out. Yes. Not only that, but, not including Roger himself, there are 3 number ones. And all 4 of them are a master of disguise in some way. So yes, one of them is Carmen Sandiego.
>>5472871>Some bedsheet monster called Mimikyu slipped into my pokeball when I was handed it! It was very scary!!!
I am going to bed, so sorry for telling you I was only gonna be a few hours. I have classes to plan, for you guys. Want to make sure there are things to look forward to. Considering dividing things a la persona with 1 class per 2 downtime actions... but i can just have classes be interesting. So i have a lot to think about. So i guess... vote on a class as well if you want.Biology is about pokemon as pokemon. There are other classes for items, team comp, pokemon as work forces, and so forth.
>>5473094This is Dusknoir row, so it would be really cool to have a "reform" class taught by an actual ex-criminal that talks about their original motivations, how they reformed, and why. Maybe some sort of "civics" class where we have the opportunity to actually improve our social skills or learn just how awful it is to actually work (we are team Lazy after all).
>>5472871>Some bedsheet monster called Mimikyu slipped into my pokeball when I was handed it - I need another before I get in trouble>>5473094Maybe a class on... Pokemon FRIENDSHIP? how to increase affinity and cooperativeness in Pokemon? Very useful for us right now.
>>5472871>...Listen, I need a pokeball
"Well... now that you are asking... yes!" You hold up Mimikyu's ball. "When I was handed this ball... there was already a pokemon in it! Some bedsheet thing named Mimikyu!"The man frowns. "That is troubling. We did not send such a pokemon... it might be a stray... Listen Gurie, come to the nurses office after class hours. I would like to, assist in negotiations. We will write it as volunteer hours and I will get you some pocket money for the facade." He holds out a safari ball in his hands. "Until then, take this, make sure no one knows you got a pokemon already."You nod. "That sounds good, thanks Nimrah."He smiles. "Anytime. Now head out, its almost time for social studies."Oh that doesn't sound so bad.~~~~Oh it was worse. Much worse.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2ktXEQI5Tg"Fuhohoho!" A sequinned man with a pokeball trapped on his head struts down the class aisles. his scarf billowing in the nonexistant wind. "It is I, your teacher! Miror B!" He poses and a lot of the class claps. "Yes yes, it is I, former leader of Cipher, but I have reformed! Seen the light, no more shadow pokemon and darkness for me. " He poses. "Now the only thing I fight for is the spotlight!"He claps his hand. "Now, you want out of the slammer? Then you gotta make society want you out. Got to show your bling baby. You gotta work FOR the people," Pose. "Gotta be a man OF the people!" Pose "And you will be freed baybay BY the people!" He raises his finger in the air, stealing the Leon look from Galar (Not that you actually know that but it looks tacky)."So baby doll that is why Marco Cosmos pay me to be here and not on the dance floor. It is my job to help all of you find your groove with your pokemon and people, after all, I was someone who worked with shadow pokemon, I know exactly how to take the funky times away.""Now! Baby dolls, its time for you all to be making friends. But to be makin friends you got to..." He poses. "Make a impression baybay!""That's why we are going to first work on poses. You got to capture with flair, you got to throw with finesse, and you got to win with style! Otherwise ya might as well not have a mon"You slink into your chair.

You sigh and get in the line, you ready your pose, moving your hands in a circle. And... you trip!"a....ah!" You wave your harms helplessly and smash your face on the floor, your feet dangling in the air.The music cuts. "Hold it hold it!" Miror struts over to you, looming over your splayed form. "What... was that style? That was not grace! That was not beauty! That wasn't anything!" He points at you. "Can you not even wave your arms right? You have... no swag!"No style... You sniffle. "I...I did my best.""If that was your best then, Madame, you are doomed." He moonwalks away, shades still staring at you. "You got to move like the world's staring at you. That's how you access... the REAL power!"He spins and points a finger at you. "Detension! Remedial dance classes! The whole shebang!!! I am throwing the book at you Clownshoes!""But...I have a appointment with the nurse after school!" You protest as he brushes it off. "You slippery polliwag... you think you can dance outta this one when you can't dance at all? You will take your detenion... After! And again for the week! The Month! Until you get it right!"He poses and the spotlight shines on him, revealing glittering crystals on his arm band. "You think I joke? Nonono! The only comedy here is you. Gaze upon my wrists. My Z crystals! A aloha from Alola!" Pose."Their sacred dances give their pokemon partners sacred power... Without Z crystals of your own, you can not use Z moves... BUT The moves themselves! They are still there class!" Pose!"The power within is expressed through the power without! The style! These will help you pull your pokemon's inner reserves!"He twirls. "Now... I WAS supposed to give you all the options to pick your companion pokemon for your visit... but that seems dull... Instead! The Miror shall have you all pose from the heart! Show me your real you... and the B will provide!"Twirl, and points to the sky. "Do not disappoint!"The crowd cheers. This sucks, and now you have to do ANOTHER dance???

You can do this! I mean... you CAN'T do this dont be ridiculous... but you CAN try your best anyway!You dig deep, tapping into your family training, your traditions, you take high steps, tiptoeing forward. Smile, arms splayed, head back, and laugh!Well by laugh... you squek. However Miror claps anyway. "Fantastic! A bit hard on the follow through but I can see that, despite your lack of polish, I can see the spirit. Mischief! Anger! That's..." Pose. "Your true style!"He snaps his finger and a TA runs in carrying a case of pokeballs. "No no, the special goods!" The TA's eyes widen, as they scramble back into the office."Now now!" Miror B lowers his shades. "This pokemon is... VERY special! Unruly even! If you even blink in its presence. It will tear you apart... BUT!" He snaps his fingers. "It is VERY strong! Can you handle it?"The man comes with... a cage? A small pink gremlin biting at the bars. It looks at you with beedy purple pupils.'So! You up for it? Your passion can handle a Impidink?">S-sure>Absolutely NOT I blink ALL the time!
>>5474290>Absolutely NOT I blink ALL the time!We already got our hands full with a Mimikyu.
>>5474290>Absolutely NOT I blink ALL the time!Impidink is immune to psychic and resistant to ghost, we're screwed!Also I think they're ugly
So two nos, and two yes (one more enthusiastic then the other)I will say this: This pokemon is uniquely stronger and rowdier then other impidinks, but if you refuse it you will get a less hostile pokemon who is also pretty good.. probbably a fire type.
>>5474386I'm guessing the reason we're getting a 'passionate' pokemon is due to our dance.
>>5474290>>S-sureGrimmsnarl is Cool as fuck, and if>>5474386is anything to go by, It could be able to gigantamax too.
"W-hwa? I am not really... that's a lot of responsibility and..." You deflate under the stare of the reformed villian. "...Okay."Impidink has joined your team!~~~~~Class continues, People talk, pokemon are picked, mostly from the box of pokeballs that Miror has, but he does find a few other "passionate people' to give out his special caged animals to. One of them actually includes that Hartwell guy.But time flies when you are ignoring people, and well... that's exactly what you did. Class ends and with two class periods finished, its your Work Period. And for your work... well.You arrive at the Nurses office. Noah looking up at you with a smile. "Ready?">Yes.>Um... can we build some seals or something? Like a cage? In case this is dangerous?>Mimikyu already swore to me, maybe we can do this... nicely?
>>5474440>Mimikyu already swore to me, maybe we can do this... nicely?
>>5474440>>Mimikyu already swore to me, maybe we can do this... nicely?
You are Impidink, you can be named something else if that's what the woman wants.You lived in a forest, brought here by Macro Cosmos, you had fun playing pranks and stealing supplies. This must have gotten you in trouble. Because you are no longer in the forest. You were captured by men in white suits who took you to a room. Things happen but you dont really care that much about that. The cage was cold though you did not like the cage.Now you are in a pokeball. It is warmer then the cage. The forest was warm. You like the pokeball.A girl holds the pokeball, she seems weak. People like that get kidnapped by people in white suits.Poor girl.>Pick a name for Impidink!
I have not been having the best day, mostly health things, no real worries. But i apologize for the dip in quality. We will continue tomorrow.
>>5474446>Trixie>>5474448Hey, no worries. Sorry to hear, and get well soon! The writing's been fine.

>>5474669I still like my Lazytown reference, but Gremlin is fine, too.
Hello everyoneLooks like being nice and gremlin both win! Lets go!
You look at Mimikyus ball, it seemed PRETTY panicked when you beat it all by yourself... "Uncle... can we... go easy on it?"Nimrah raises a eyebrow. "Why?""...Well, I already cursed the Mimikyu, and it swore to be nice to me, I think it is PRETTY cowed. I am glad you are here to watch my back... but before we do good cop bad cop, I think we can just... ask them?""I mean... that isn't as fun but sure." He shrugs. "We got a bed."You open a door to one of the "hopsital beds" and toss the Mimikyu on the bed, the bedsheet immediately scampers behind the pillow."Look! I'm harmless honest! I wasn't gonna do nothing! I can barely even do something! I was just supposed to recruit you!">Recruit me? To what?>Who put you in my pokeball>I don't believe you>Write in other questions>Want to join MY gang?

>>5474874>Recruit me? To what?>Who put you in my pokeball
"Recruit me?" You step forward. "To what?""T-t-t-to my gang!" The Mimikyu yips and tries to back up. You... you must have done a number on him with that curse. It is absolutely stricken by your presence. "These friends of mine... well acquaintances really! They were assembling this big ole team and they wanted Lazy in on it! When the slick man said no they said 'well aim for the horse!' and since you were already in jail well, strings were pulled and here I am! We were just gonna take over the world! With cuteness and stuff honest!"You cross your arms and he starts stammering. "Listen! I'm just Mimikyu! I'm not legendary! I'm not even mythical! I'm just a loveable pokemon from the islands! A little fairy! You can trust fairies!""Who slipped you into my pokeball?" You ask as it looks around."Um... um, can i not say? They'll get mad at me. I don't want to be called a rat?" You use your glare.Mimikyu is paralyzed and can't move! "Okay! I don't know! A man in white! Big green glasses! He recruited me! Said he could use my "Grudge" to improve his pokemon... which means I must be really special right? I don't know what was going on after I was put in the ball..." His eyes sparkle! "Wait! I heard music! Really loud! Really bad music!"You frown. "And that's how you knew who I was? You just assumed everything worked out?""Well... it did so..." Mimis fake head droops. "I just was excited to have friends for once?">Your friends sound like criminals>Did you have friends or a boss?>...So... whats your big team about?>Write in

>>5474999>Did you have friends or a boss?and then use it to segway to>Want to join MY gang?
"Did you have friends? Or did you have a boss?" You ask as the Mimikyu stares at you."Is... is there a difference?" It asks as you nod."The boss asks you to do things, and they can be nice to you, and treat you well, but they determine the deal, they call the shots."You point at Mimikyu. "But a friend compromises! They let you take lead on missions! And they share snacks!"Mimikyu gasps. "Wh- Faba never lets me eat his snacks..."You frown. "R-really? Not even the bad ones?"Mimikyu gives you a sad look. "He only eats licorice, its ALL bad snacks..."Wow this Faba guy sucks. "Well... I mean, I am making a gang! And while I might not be your friend, yet at least, I am willing to share my snacks."The Mimi sniffles. "R-really? Even though I'm spooky?"You smile. "I am a hex maniac, I like spooky."Mimikyu stands up. "Well! Since Faba just traded me away, he clearly is..." He shrinks a bit. "I don't think he cared if this plan worked..."Mimi bonks himself with his stick! "BUT! That's not the issue! If you don't succeed! Do it again!" He winks. "You got a deal Gurie!">Mimikyu has joined your party!!!Mimikyu vanishes back into your pokeball as you turn to Nimrah and frown. "Who the hell is Faba?"Nimrah shrugs. "I don't really watch the news. I am a..." He tilts his head in thought. "Scientist. Yes, that's right... I can tell you they are not from Kanto. Based on what your partner said about grudges... perhaps he is some pokemon psychologist?">1d100 to try to remember something outside your sugar mansion>Eh, hes stupid, go to Miror B's class.

After a few moments wracking your brain, you remember Faba, hes the dumb guy with the goggles!No not Tom, different goggles. He works with the Friendship Forward LLC, its a group formed by Macro Cosmos and Aether Foundation to work on developing "low income areas" and revitalizing disaster zones... of course, Orre is nothing except disaster zones so they ran in here with force.Faba apperantly keeps getting demoted because of a willingness to do the worst things his bosses tell him to do, and being happy to take the fall. He's broken the barrier to dimensions before with a machine Lusamine funded (Before she got hospitalized), and thus while he got demoted to a intern, when the FFC came about he's been steadily rising in ranks thanks to some stuff with getting pokemon in the new safari zones to cooperate. Speaking of... the Friendship Forward Institute, filled with white suited philistines trying at philanthropy. They own the prison (Hence the name Rose Academy) and your dad has been hassling them for a while.If Faba was bossing around Mimikyu, and to "use his hatred in his experiments" he must... be doing some hate research? Well the FFC DID buy out the Pokemon Lab, maybe they are researching the Purity Chamber? Who knows.

"Do... I HAVE to come with you?" Tom says being dragged by the arm to dance class. "Miror B smells weird and he plays music too loud.""Listen Tom, if Miror. B is so weird then who KNOWS what he'll do to a girl alone! I need a witness! A bodyguard!" You turn and point at Tom. "And so far your the best one for the job!""Why not Carrie? She at least is on your team.""Carrie hasn't fought a ghost with me yet, your a... mostly known entity! And you can play on your switch while I am working so its less boring for you then Carrie."Tom sighs but continues to let you drag her.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BHhJUd6pRI&t=67s"Ah! Fantastic!" Miror B claps as you entire the atrium area where you were inducted into the school yesterday. The chairs have been put away revealing a large... pokemon arena???"This mon cheri! Is our dance floor! You have the passion but no moves." Miror B stands on the podium the principal was clutching yesterday. "So I will SHOW you the moves." He splays his arm out. "You won't try unless you see for yourself.. the power of Personallity!" He reaches for his belt and grabs two pokeballs, tossing them out with a twirl.A Ludicolo dances beneath a large Pelliper, ran starting to fall in the area as Miror dances. "Do not worry no, it is practice!"Since this is Orre, there are only one real way to fight... double battles.>Tom... can you help please?>Reveal Mimikyu but bullshit a reason why you have one.>Do it yourself but DONT reveal mimikyu and try to guilt Miror B into lending you one>C-can we just learn the jazz square?

>>5475603>C-can we just learn the jazz square?>Do it yourself but DONT reveal mimikyu and try to guilt Miror B into lending you oneWhen Miror B inevitably says no, we tell him it won't be fair if we just fight one v two. And something about wanting to have a good feel for battling in Orre too.

"W-wait!" You panic looking around, you can't use Mimikyu right now! That would be suspicious. Suspicous people get targets on their back. "C-can't we just... work on footwork!"Miror B claps. "Work on your feet baby doll! Dance while fighting!""...B-but I don't even HAVE a second pokemon you only gave me the one."Miror twirls. "No... worries!" He tosses another safari ball at you. "Freshly ordered! Normally I'd ask you to work in a team, teach you trust skills, but..." He looks at Tom and shudders. "I can see why you would not want that."Tom's switch turns on, and Miror fliches.You... think Tom scares the teacher? Weird. Miror B is a teacher... you guess Miror is more flash then fiber... that is a saying right?You toss the pokeballs and Gremlin runs circles around your new lended pokemon, a glittering dragon who seems to just sit there watching Gremlin waste their energy. The music changes keys as Miror B claps. "We have waited enough! The beat has no pause, and our battle shall not be paused any longer! Show your bling and let Miror shine you!"The spotlights focus on Miror B his z crystals glittering.>>Tyrannical Teacher Miror B. demands a battle!You got two basic pokemon and Ludicolo and Pelipper are fresh, Miror SAID hes going easy on you... but he also looks like a liar?AND it's raining.>Gremlin, Jangmo-o!

"Alright!" You point at Pelipper. Gremlin! Er, Jangmo-o! Take the bird down!Miror claps. "Samba! Use fake out on the pink one. Pelipper, Tailwind!"Your pokemon leap in the air, Gremlin reaching his arm out to do... it LOOKS like some sort of energy was gathering but Ludicolo skates accross the water and slams both of his maracas into Gremlin's face. The imp stumbles back, dazed a bit.Jangmo instead slinks from beneath the pelipper as the bird starts beating its wings faster, pushing against the wind the big beak bird was beating against him. He coils in a leap and... tackles Pelipper.Tackle? Isn't that... kinda boring from a pokemon that's so musical."And volia! The stage is set! Now... let me show you my Power Pose!"

Alright my turn!!
Gremlin is a prankster... despite you not having seen them do any pranks... but in theory they are better at status effects then simple damage. So... you should play to their strengths right?"Alright Gremlin, disable the other two before the pose move, then Jangm-o, attack!Gremlin nods, and struts forward, raising his hands, then lowering them as he emits a GHASTLY wail.The sound is shrill and deep at the same time, as if two pitches are played at the same time that rattle bones and break glass and you SORTOF want to puke (Which you also felt when you were supposed to dance in public but its worse now). Ludicolo and Pelipper DEFINETLY hear it too, so does Miror, and Tom... toms wearing ear buds. Pellippers flapping gets disoriented, off tempo as Ludicollo looks around disoriented. They are both confused....Do Impidinks know supersonic?Miror B, whatever super move he had planned, seems to have forgotten, his hands over his ears. Ludicolo scrambles for a bit but shakes his maracas, a large spray of hot water gushing out and stricking Jangmo-o in the face. Jangmo gives a pained yip as it charges, hitting Pelipper with its tail. The bird is sent flying and vanishes into their pokeball."Coco!" A bright yellow bird flies out, its eyes dull and listless.The Oricoro sortof stands there, watching the enemy birds waiting for a move.Tom looks up and puts his switch down."Owowowow! No fair messing with the Miror's groove!" He frowns and looks at Oricorio. "Oh... well she's not meant to be out." He raises his pokeball and switches the Pelipper back out.>More status effects!

Guess that's everyone! Fortunately, I have already planned what these moves are.
You are... probbably not going to win this to be honest. Depending on HOW much Miror is holding back, his pokemon are evolved, yours are not, and you dont know either of them. You can't see how you win this in a fair fight. However.... you don't HAVE to fight fair. By Miror's logic his poses, which he hasn't used yet, involve coordinating with his pokemon... and you can just... stop that."Gremlin, Jangmo-o, hassle the Ludicolo! Throw everything you got, disable their attacker!" You throw your hand out, doing your best to put some oomph in your order...Your pose seems to get through to your friends as they immediately leap into action. Gremlin rubs his hands, static building until it flips its palms at Ludicolo. Electic waves are hurled towards Samba, the pokemon giving a startled chortle as its paralyzed.As you said in class, this slows its speed down, so even with the water its swift swim doesn't help... The bird however, is not so impaired.Pelipper swoops down and plucks Gremlin, its beak outstretch as it.... EATS YOUR POKEMON!??!Gremlins just trapped in Pellipers beak, the apathetic imps legs dangling from the orange bill as it crunchs raw flying damage down at your fairy.Your dragon follows up, sliding towards Ludicolo and patting large eyes at Samba.You... guess Jangmo-o is a girl... and apperantly Samba... is a scalie."Co...lo...lo!" The singing pokemon, despite their stun is very excited, hearts covering his eyes as the pokemon is swimming in the hurricane of love. He swoons, and slips on the water and bashes his head, hurting himself in his confusion.The Pelipper is slightly dinged, but so is Gremlin, and Pelipper has the air advantage.Jangmo-o is pretty scalded but is otherwise fine.Ludicolo however, is disoriented, nauseated, barely able to move, and is in love with his sleep paralyze dragon. He is physically, mentally, and spiritually disabled. If that pokemon manages to pass gass, much less successfully hit a move, it would be a miracle."Ah... Samba.... you are killing me." Miror says with a sigh as he withdrew his emotionally distraught partner. "That's a dirty move Gurie... but that's what it takes in show biz. But Disco will show you why you do not bite the big dog."...Pelipper is not a dog?

Congratulations that is three sixes in a row you unlock the bonus hell dlc.Also you crit but that is less fun.
You need to make a move on this wingull before Miror throws the book at you."Gremlin! Thunderwave!" Obeying your command, Gremlin seems to come alive as it blasts a wave of lightning at the Peliper, perhaps incensed by its attack earlier.The creature is buffeted by electric energy, but, with the benefit of tailwind in play its still faster then your dragon. "Now... rock em!" He twirls arms splayed, until he raised them in the air and lowers em, duel finger gun, at Gremlin "LIKE A HURICAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE!!!!">Miror B uses Finisher Pose, Special attack dramatically increases, Attack dramatically increases! Defense harshly falls! Special defense harshly falls!>Pelipper uses Hurricane! A horrific whirlwind starts brewing up, lightning flashes as things start to spin... if this is the power of poses... you will need to risk it all here!You spread your legs and hold your arms out, rearing your head back until... Stomp! >Gurie uses Sumo Pose! Her team hunkers down and braces for impact! Speed dramatically reduced.Your group, balked by your own actions hold fast, Jongmo-o smashing his hands into the floorboard and bracing. Gremlin watches and... grabs Jongmo-os tail.The wind rockets, rages and Gremlin is sent up and down and left and right, but never loses his grip. Cuts form on your pokemon, bruises... but they do not fall.The hurricane queits eventually, with Pelipper winded a bit demoralized that his big finisher didn't... finish. "Now Jongmo-o! Dragontail!"Jongmo-o rears his tail back and hurls Gremlin with a massive force... that as a fairy, the impidimp does not feel at all. The creature soars towards Pelipper and then... you think its eyes flicker a bit, that spark of hostility emerges.A purplish energy emerges from his foot as he kicks Pelipper, the strange attack just brutalizing the weakened mon.Pelipper falls like a sack of bricks, your mon wailing its tiny fists on the bird all the way down."Squaaa...." Pelipper moans as it falls, Gremlin standing up, and starts walking back.Then it spits on the floor, rubbing its nose.You win!"Awww... not groovy." The rain dies down as Miror returns his pokemon. "Didn't really get to show off the power of my poses... but..." His shades twinkle. "Do you not understand them now? You did use one?">I... think so>No... no i dont, that just felt silly>Aren't you worried about that purple thing?>Write in
>>5476795>I... think so>Aren't you worried about that purple thing?
You look over at the room, watching the stadium just... slowly repair itself. "I... think so. I can use poses to help my commands get followed."Miror snaps his fingers. "Exactly! Remember a pokemon battle is about the trainer, the pokemon are our ways to express ourselves, who we raise, how we train them, how we command them. It's all about YOU, and thus YOU need to put just as much of yourself into the battle as you do preparing it."That sounds... right... but kinda weird. "What about... friendship and stuff? Isn't that what pokemon are about."He chuckles. "Ah maybe, maybe! But no one is excited to see the Ludicolos but me, they come for Miror B." He lowers his sunglasses and wink. "But a few of my rivals always were a fan of that friendship and love, and they did shine. So hold onto that optimism and we will see where it takes you.">You unlocked Poses! Poses are special moves that one can do DURING battle to confer extra effects on your teammates. Poses require Dazzle, which is reduced by repeated uses of a pose, especially when you lose. You can only use one pose of the same type once per fight, and they all have side effects. If you do not win with your finisher your own pokemon are likely finished!>Do not just win with style! Style to win!!!Miror B hands you a scrap book. "Keep track of your poses with this. There are cameras everywhere here, and they watch all your fights. When you got a good move going, you can get the guards to get you a picture so you can memorialize that style."That's great but... you look at the arena and the little indent disco left. "What WAS that move Gremlin used at the end? It was all purply... and I didn't ask it to use that move."Miror laughs. "Well I told you it was special yes? Perhaps it just picked up what you were putting down? Or maybe you need to get some badges from the guard captains to get your special partner to fall in line? As for the purple... well maybe it was brutal swing? Or foul play? It is a dark type and if anything was going to knock me down, foul play would've been the way."You look back at Tom who is looking at Miror B. You aren't sure your convinced, you feel like you would recognize those moves... Y-you aren't stupid right?"Anyway!" Miror twirls. "That pose lit a fire in me, and you still have detention! We will practice! Now!"You were forced to rehearse the Sumo pose until dinner. You and Tom are waiting in line at the mess as Tom starts to whisper behind you. "Hey... Gurie?" Your goggled friend's head dart around conspiratorially. "I think... something is up with Gremlin."
>>5476851>What no? Hes super sweet.>You think he may be sick?>He does seem pretty droopy>Write inYou have 7500 LP total with 2500 being added thanks to beating Miror B. Even if he was holding back.You can save your money and eat... potato and cheese, or you can spend a extra 1000 lp to order a advanced meal, or 500 to order a topping like meat. 1000x per star, 500x per topping star, the topping must match the level of the food so you cant put wagyu meat on a boiled potato. Spending on luxuries will improve living standards and help you bond with people and pokemon especially if you share. BUT if you fail to hold up those living standards then lows may hit harder.Promotions to upperclass hood (Because its a prison there are "evaluations" to determine level not age (Thats why Tom is a freshman still despite being here longer then you)) can provide a permanent boost to luxuries.

>>5476975>>5476991>>5476973>>5476973Alright writing this belated miror scene.
"So... Miror B." You hold up Jangmo-os ball. "Can I keep her? She works really well with Gremlin and I need to do double battles anyway. So..."Miror hmms. "Well we have a "Prison yard" for you to hunt down your own pokemon as well as a Rec center for buying pokemon you don't need MY help.""But... I DO if I want a cool stylish dragon?" You flutter your eyelashes and Miror, rudely you may add, shudders."Yes yes, I am in charge of pokemon distribution, but what if someone else wants a nice stylish dragon?""Then... get a new one?" You sigh. "Do I get the dragon or not?""Hmmm" He rubs his chin. "You are right it is a cool and stylish dragon. I think it belongs to a Honor student... and Honor students help their teacher."He frowns and sticks his tongue out. "Not like whatever you are thinking. Miror does not swing your dance. Nor would Miror if he DID." ????"You are not the only person who needs stylish pokemon, and Miror helps many kind souls in this... But..." He looks at the camera. "Miror can't just be handing students pokeballs. The principal... has plans that are not related to my charity.""...I imagine these students are very grateful to someone who gives them a lot of gifts." You look at the puddles of water frowning. "Am I going to, selling pokemon."He laughs. "No no no. Just giving them mon cheri, which is well within my duties. If they feel so grateful they give you a gift, its yours to keep.">Agree>Refuse>Counteroffer

>>5477049>Refuse>>5477136>Buy ice cream for 500 lp
You look at Jangmo-o. She was integral to your win, and is one of the apex pokemon of the alola region, one of those super pokemon people spend years hunting down. And you have one. And you are going to give it up."Sorry Miror. But that sounds like work, and well..." You shrug. "I am my father's kid."Miror raises his shades and gives you a [i]look[/i] before shrugging. "Que sera sera! You want to be your own woman. I feel that. Then forget I ask... but, mon cheri, do not forget." He waves you off, turning around. "You still have detention, you are not rid of work just because you do not want to be my peon. But for tonight, you are free. Enjoy your dinner."You curtsy. "Thank you teacher." And leave, Tom following behind.~~~~You think back to Miror's vague weirdness, and your Gremlin's behavior. "Yeah... hes pretty droopy for a dark type... or a fairy even." Hes not lax, or impish or brash... hes just... apathetic."Hold on." You scan the room and wave at Carrie whose sitting with a bandage on her cheek, talking to some tall guys in a purple vest and a orange undershirt.Tom whispers. "Those are Ghast gangers. The ones in jumpsuits are second chanseys, the choke crew wear overalls, and we Darknoirs have jackets and stripes.""What about the Trick Room""Foil and straightjackets."Wow you lucked out not being here.Carrie nods to one of the Ghastgangers, a obese one eating from a large pot with a ladle, and heads over to you.You look down on your well spent meal. Sure you got your potatoes you guess, but mostly you got icecream.The Brain Lockdown Sundae!!! Its got chocolate! Mint! Two cones shoved in it, and whipped cream! Its great.You let Gremlin out of his ball and hand him a big cone of your food. He stares at it before slowly licking the icecream."You... got a impidink?" Carrie said frowning. "Why is he... slow?""Oh hes actually very fast." you say balancing a mountain of whipped cream on your spoon. 'He's just..."You think back. Miror B said he was a very special pokemon, and he is... but his behaviors so stilted... almost like he doesn't have any emotion...Or... his hearts been... locked. "Oh Arceus." You look at the Impidimp with your Witchsight, and taking out your sewing supplies, you make a pink cloth doll of the impidimp.You cant see it from the pokemon, he looks normal, if not liftless, but dark energy spills from your doll. No... not dark."Shadow..." you whisper.You look at Gremlin, the shadow impidimp stares back, a dribble of chocolate sauce drips onto the floor."Im.">T-tom what do I do?>Well... your still my problematic fav Gremlin! I don't care if your hearts been locked by a faceless megacorp>Hehe... good thing I didn't take Miror B's offer right heheheh...>Play it straight, nothing is wrong with impidimp and nothing will stay wrong if you just leave it alone and dont freak out in a public venue!

>>5477285>>Well... your still my problematic fav Gremlin! I don't care if your hearts been locked by a faceless megacorpDid everybody at dusknoir row get a shadow pokemon, or is it just us? there would be a huge shitshow if word gets out about shadow pokemon being created or at the very least used at a place for criminals...
You reach over and pet Gremlin, the pokemons head bobing with your arm movement. "Well... you are still my favorite Gremlin! Even if your heart's a little... messed up now!"Mimikyu's pokeball wiggles in protest at this but this is NOT the time for that.Still... you did promise. You open Mimikyu's ball and share some icecream with them too.Far from Gremlins silent licking. Mimikyu animatedly munches down on the icecream... You think for a moment and make a puppet of Mimikyu and...The aura is definitely different, but theres a edge... Mimkyus got that hate, that weight of the walls that are around Gremlin are there... but the shadows are just all over the place not coalasced. The darkness is there, just not... harnessed.>Mimikyu is paralyzed and can't move! "Okay! I don't know! A man in white! Big green glasses! He recruited me! Said he could use my "Grudge" to improve his pokemon... which means I must be really special right? ...Oh."Hey... Carrie... do you... have a shadow pokemon."Carrie spits out their pie, eyes darting. "What?" She looks at Gremlin. "THAT'S a shadow pokemon? But he looks so... normal?""Im." He licks his cone. Its starting to drip and theres a big indent where he's been licking, the same spot, but he still doesnt twirl the cone."Okay... sure. But a shadow pokemon hasn't been seen in... Hold on...""17 years." Tom says sipping. "That's as old as I am. I was born on the day Greevil turned himself in.""Still can I see your pokemon?"Carrie looks around "ALL of them? Not all my pokemon are well... impressive."Tom sighs and takes out her set of modified fastball and presses it. Emerging out of her ball is a Toxel, the creature yawns and looks at you blearily. Definitely not a shadow pokemon.Carrie sighs and undoes her belt and you... a row of modified fast balls.She tosses out a wattrel, a swablu, a ducklett, a natu and... "Togepi!" The egg pokemon waves her arms happily."But... your the crow lady?" You ask Carry who looks away. "I don't want to talk about it.">Its a very nice team! You got some pretty good type coverage!>So... if I am the only one who got a shadow pokemon... what makes me special?>Write in (im running low on ideas)
>>5477684>ask about the Ghastgangsters Carrie were talking toAlso, I thought we were using Safari balls?
>>5477708Let me explain.Safari balls are useful because outside their zone they are useless. So you use safari balls because essentially the wardens have a switch that can turn the ball off. This DOESNT mean safari variants do not exist, since unlike in the safari zone, the goal here is different.However writing "Safari fast ball" got long and i didnt want to, and i shouldve.sowwy theres a lot of plot going on so i got lazy
Bed time. You finally got to the big reveal! Now you can see why impidink was specially selected for a nat hundo instead of say, Dreppy.You may ask, "But why not a shadowy dreppy" well there are a few reasons, but a bunch is impidinks have a distinct character that Gremlin's lack of helped set the stage for. Second, since this is a double battle game I figured Grimmsnarl would be a lot stronger then most your options.Lastly... well, Grimmsnarl wool is super useful for curses. You can imagine why already.Also... we had our first fight! Big day for everyone! Very exciting stuff.. or so i hope so.Maybe one day you will find out Tom's real name but i dont think anyone actually cares.
>>5477724You good, Mimi. Confusion has been cleared up.>>5477742Was indeed very exciting day. Sleep well.
Guess who is back from the holidays....Yes i was updating during the holidays. But now im just updating!
>>5478228Doing god work.
You tilt your head towards the Ghastgangers, particurally the portly man just... ripping into his meal. You looked away for a few minutes to talk about the shadow thing but somehow the table now has pie.Ironically enough, while you are staring at them. They seem to be... staring at you.The portly man wipes his mouth with a handkerchief, beady eyes studying you. He waves and smiles. You shiver... but to be honest, you shiver whenever you make eyecontact. It's part of why you appreciate Tom, and their big weird goggles."Why were you talking to them?" You ask Carrie who looks confused."The Grub Club? Should I not be? He's in the student council."...You have a student council? Carrie notices your confusion and swoops in. "So, for the sake of a 'healthy school life' we have "Year Leaders" and "House Leaders", with there being five houses and three years each represenative forms a.. pseudo gym. With the Student Council forming the elite four and the president..." She shrugs. "You get the picture."You snort, despite your great womanly charms (Which you have) "Gyms? That's stupid, why not collesiums like you know, Orre is known for.""Oh there is one too, but..." She shrugs. "The principal is found of the league.""...Okay but WHY did you talk to a elite four member?" Theres a awful lot of cogs spinning and you dont really want this to be another fly in this very speckled oitment.Carrie reaches their hand out, Togepi rubbing her head against her trainer's palm. "They run the kitchens, especially their leader over there Wide Tony. My birds pick up on things and Tony helps me get stuff.""What kind of stuff."Carrie frowns. "Why am I the only one getting asked questions? Why not zappy over here." She gives Tom a look who frowns."Zappy isn't my name either...">I was just curious! Theres a lot I don't know about prison life I'll drop it>What if we just go around and exchange questions and answers! It'd be a fun game!>Well why are you being so weirdly cagey on this? I am the one with the criminal shadow pokemon! And Zappy Tom killed a man! We all have baggage that you know about, so I think its a good bonding exercise to know YOUR weird baggage too.>What IS your name Zappy Tom.
>>5478291>I was just curious! Theres a lot I don't know about prison life I'll drop it>What IS your name Zappy Tom.
>>5478291>What if we just go around and exchange questions and answers! It'd be a fun game!>Well why are you being so weirdly cagey on this? I am the one with the criminal shadow pokemon! And Zappy Tom killed a man! We all have baggage that you know about, so I think its a good bonding exercise to know YOUR weird baggage too.No way this will go badly.Also it's funny that we don't know Tom's real name yet. I bet we'll find out eventually one way or another.
Well the odds are in!
You puff your cheeks in your princessly pout. A act that has gotten quite a few of your fathers grunt to submit to your will before. "Well that's not very fair Carrie!" You hold up Gremlins hand, who is now licking a empty cone. "I have a shadow pokemon! That's very suspicious! My dad is a mob boss!" You point at Tom. "Zappy killed a man!""Hey I am Tom!" Tom frowns. "Wait... no I am not.""We all have very blackmailable and suspicious circumstances." You ignore Tom. "So it only seems fair that, since we have told each other so much, that you tell us things about you too! I want to know Carrie the person, not Carrie the girl with all the birds. Hows this, we will go around! Asking questions of each other.""...Fine." She grumbles. "I like to use my Birds to gather information, Tony likes to gather things as well, hes not the council treasurer, but hes a lot easier to deal with then she is. So I like to buy things from him instead. I used to roll with his crew and everything to help.""Bu-""Videos." Carrie interrupts you before sighing. "The Second chancers are low risk enough they can leave the school to do volunteer hours... And they tend to "pick things up" things they sell to Tony for extra food. Some of those things are tv recordings."'Oh... wha-""My turn." Carrie leans forward with a grin. "Your family... what's it like to be a princess?""What?" You sputter. "I am a cool hex maniac! I am not a princess! Like some silly fairy tail girl."Carrie looks at your two fairy pokemon and back at you. "My apologies, what's it like to be a heiress."Hmm....>Pretty... normal? You just eat lots of cake and sleep and play video games>Pretty cool! You got to boss around people and eat cake and go on trips>Lame! You needed a bodyguard to make sure you werent kidnapped and no one told you things!>A lot of work, the cops didnt figure it out but you were DEFINITELY involved in your dads work. Especially with your sister.
>>5478445>>Pretty... normal? You just eat lots of cake and sleep and play video gamesDad wanted to keep us out of the game, right?So weren't "Heiresses" per say, and more beneficiaries.
>>5478476>>5478482Well this is your big chance to retcon that sketchy past into a sketchier future!or you can stay the course.
>>5478445>Pretty... normal? You just eat lots of cake and sleep and play video games
You think back on your child hood, the fancy beds, the butler, the large piles of cake you got to eat every breakfast...Wasn't that... normal?"I can't... think of anything weird about my childhood. At least, not related to my dad's work?" You tap your chin. "I mean, we had money, but I mean, we also owned a snack food company. It's not like I was supposed to help him bury dead bodies... Not that we had dead bodies to bury."Carrie frowned. "But, you are the young mistress! Don't you have like. Cool stories and secret pasts and all that stuff?"You shake your head. "Cool stories maybe! I mean I do know all the Number One's personally. But... I just... never did anything wrong!""Hey wait." Tom interjects pointing at your glowing shadow dolls of your pokemon. "How did you learn how to do tha-""Sorry my question's done! Now its my turn!" You interrupt as Tom frowns."No, you asked HER, then she asked YOU, its MY turn.">Fine Tom>Fine Tom... but! You cant ask me I already went, you have to ask Carrie.>No Tom I am the leader I know how the turn order goes, whoever is asked a question gets to ask>What about Mimi! Mimi should get a turn to ask a question!
>>5478619>Fine Tom... but! You cant ask me I already went, you have to ask Carrie.Strict but fair. That's OUR Team Lazy!
>>5478619>Fine Tom... but! You cant ask me I already went, you have to ask Carrie.
>>5478625Actually changing my vote to >Fine TomYeah, whatever, Tom
You sigh. The things you do as leader. "Fine Tom, I suppose you are right. You get to ask your question.""Yes!" She pumps her fist in excitement. "Woo!"You are debating taking it back already."Alright, your hex mania! The thing with the dolls. How DO you do that?" She points at the dolls again."Well excuse me but Hex Mania is a normal phenomenon built on proximity to "ectoenergy" it isn't all "Pacts with Giratina" and "Dark lab experiments in a blacksite orphanage.""Wait what was the last par-" Tom starts to interrupt you but Carrie sushes her."I just HAVE these powers. I don't know why, maybe my nanny was a ghost pokemon, maybe one of my ancestors was blessed by a ghost. I could have even been a early birth that has caused it before. I don't NEED a dark edgy history." You cross your arms. "And I DON'T want one.""...Okay." Tom seems to be running through something in her head, her eyebrows furrowed in focus. "I understand that being a hex maniac can be normal... but how did you learn how to do the things with the dolls?" She holds her hands up. "I mean I am not psychic so i dont know but that doesnt SEEM like something that you'd just... know how to do! Just like i dont just KNOW how to ride a bike! Someone had to have taught you right?">No actually I was self taught but i can see why youd be confused>Oh that? I saw it in a movie and just kept researching the practice till i got good at it.>Oh a Bannette taught me it, she's really nice I wonder where she is now>Oh my nanny taught me it>Oh my nanny, who was a bannette, taught me>Oh I got a book on dolls from some old man running a antique store. It was very spooky.>Write in
>>5478657>Oh a Bannette taught me it, she's really nice I wonder where she is now
>>5478657>Oh my nanny, who was a bannette, taught me
>>5478657>>Oh that? I saw it in a movie and just kept researching the practice till i got good at it.The movie was super fake and we just somehow were able to do it after practicing a bunch.
>>5478657>>Oh a Bannette taught me it, she's really nice I wonder where she is nowBannanny-ette is pretty cool too
>>5478657>Oh I got a book on dolls from some old man running a antique store. It was very spooky.Wouldn't it be funny if Gurie just randomly had a Book of Shadows up until we were arrested and had absolutely no clue?
>>5478657>Oh that? I saw it in a movie and just kept researching the practice till i got good at it.
>>5478756Actually switching to>Oh I got a book on dolls from some old man running a antique store. It was very spooky.
so far Nanny suzie and "obviously cursed book" are tied.But you know what isnt tied Mimi going to bed vs staying upim going to bed.
>>5478703>>Oh I got a book on dolls from some old man running a antique store. It was very spooky.Switching to this, Either a children's book or a full on Necronomicon-esque book of evil
>>5478657>Oh my nanny, who was a bannette, taught meKeep the book for something else
>>5478657>Oh my nanny, who was a bannette, taught meGhost nanny sounds like fun.
I am awake. I had a day. And now i can update.So yippe skippe.
>>5478657Seems Suzie had a more involved role in our upbringing this time...
"Oh that's easy! My nanny taught me!""You had a nanny?" Carrie's eyes shot up. "Li-like a real rich person? Did you have a maid too?"You smile. "She WAS the maid... and a Bannette.""I am sorry... a bannette?" Tom raises one of her eyebrows, which is a bit hard to see in her pilot helmet but she manages. "Not a Mr Mime or a Chansy? You were raised... by a ghost?""Shes not a ghost!" You protest. Tom's making you out to be some weirdo. "Shes a ghost pokemon! It's not like she died?""...Where DO Ghost pokemon come from?" Carrie asks, finishing her food.You frown. "You know... eggs?""I thought they came from like... the conceptualization of death and curses? Like Spiritomb and stuff?"You frown. "No that's stupid they just come from eggs like normal pokemon. They just LOOK dead, and are tied to the distorted world, and have mysterious powers." You sip your water. "And raise children.""I've never heard of a ghost rais-" You cut Tom off."A ghost POKEMON." You huff. "And Suzie is not creepy! Shes sweet! She played knight with me when I was a kid and taught me how to make dolls!""...Aren't Bannette... doll pokemon?" Tom looks at her food. "So... ""So she's really good at Strawmancy!" You nod. "Banette are believed to be the origin of all cursed doll jinx's and hexes. But instead of having to study them and copy their magic... I just got taught the trade by the genuine thing!" You frown. "I miss her. She always gave me sweets... And Tom." You glare at your friend. "Now YOU have to answer OUR questions."Tom crosses her arms. "Do your worse! I am very boring."Carrie pets her Natu.>Write in the last question of dinner before your late night planningSorry this took so long, its just a chonkers.
>>5479545>Ask why she killed that personTact? What is 'tact'?
>>5479545>What did you do to get put in the Choke Crew?She never really did tell us what she did to warrant what's basically jail time (unless I'm forgetting something).
>>5479641No she did not tell you.Carrie hasnt either.They are aware of why you got arrested though! Which is a lot less interesting because you simply did nothing wrong.
>>5479641+1 Start small but for what it's worth I'm guessing repeat larceny offences.
>>5479641>>5479644Well the odds have it again! And I will write!
"So... how did you end up here."Tom frowns. "I told you I kill-""No no." You shake your head, sticking your tongue out. "That's boring. I want to know why you got HERE!" You gesture around you, the cameras, the pokemon hudled around tables hoisted by shady men in women. "How did you get arrested? Your pretty young and keep implying you've been here for a long time. So..." You shrug. "How did you even GET arrested? You were in the choke crew which is... robberies right? But still higher then a petty pickpocket, so what did you do?""Oh." Tom sighs. "That's easy. I robbed a bank.""...We have banks?" Carrie asked. "I've never heard of them."Tom rolled her eyes. "Carrie, you've never heard of anything, you've been here longer then me. There are plenty of banks. They arent very useful for a pokemon adventure, but Macro Cosmos has some, they take money from the people and put it in to businesses and then will give it back later.""Except you robbed them.""...Well... I TRIED to rob one. My old group did. Times were hard after the Lugia thing.. which I was just a child for but it didn't make my family richer. So... eventually we took to... taking things. And eventually we were doing armored transport." She whistles. "My job was to just be in the back with hyper potions and revives to ensure my family had a roulette of people to use... but since I didn't have a pokemon myself, I was only given the robbery crime. ""...So where's the rest of your family?"Tom shrugs. "Dunno, I think they are in normal prisons. They can send letters but... they don't."The dinner bell rings. Boy that was depressing! How weird that your the only normal person in this entire prison?Either way... you have one last big period before bed, the moment where you and the Gurie Gang (Name pending) the precious free period. Well the one that wasnt snatched away by detention.But... sure you have plenty to do... but... what are you doing this for? Your a smart cookie you dont rush in half baked... You come up with a plan, and then improvise when that plan turns out to be 3 quaters baked!You meticulously played a video game before setting up a trap before you even tussled with Mimi... You are a meticulous kinda gal. That's just what makes you a cool beutey.You take a minute to bask in how smart you are, even as you head back up to your room.What... what IS your big plan? Your goal at least>Breaking out of jail, duh>To make a giant gang! You are going to rule the prison, recruit people, make contacts, and assist your father from within these walls and get your revenge.>OBVIOUSLY the shadow thing?

>>5479901Sure but this lets me actually devise options and avenues for... like arcs and stuff.So like>>5479924I cant like... unless you want to try to juggle several foes and schemes and plots at a time, which... i guess can be fun, but it may also just be confusing.Either way everyone agrees to fix your dear gremlin first (which is totally not related to how shadow pokemon, at least originally, do not level). So lets focus on that and we can see how it goes! Writing.
You can spend years arguing with yourself. And presumably, you will in fact, have years being stuck in this school. You can worry about the police, and the FFC and the alleged return of Cipher (which to be fair, you aren't even that sure is still around, maybe someone else is shadowing pokemon). Hell you could just work on stitching yourself a giant wickermonster and break down the goddamn wall. But none of that means anything if your pokemon is a neurotic shell of a being. You are that, it's not fun. And it's not like Gremlin was just born unlucky, someone DID this to them, on purpose. So that's upsetting, but as said before your a meticulous gal, you aren't going to just, declare revenge on a entity you don't know, but you can unshadow a pokemon...Can't you?There are only two known ways of it... one, the relic stone, two the purity chamber... and neither of them happen to be in a prison... But your Gurie Niamic, you are rich, cool, a beauty, intelligent, and magical... you are sure you can make this work one way or another.You see a few options here.>Go get some black market and hex friends and replicate the purity chamber... by magic>Get a fella on the outside to smuggle your pokemon to the relic stone>Your a incredibly powerful psychic, you can manufacture one.>Summon a high level ghost... pokemon, and make a contract to get some smuggling agoing>Try to summon Celebi (Which is fairy magic so... a little bleh but you can do it if you try)>Try to research shadow and figure out a third option>Ask a teacher, like the Principal or Nimrah, for help dealing with this shadow stuff! I mean its a big deal!
>>5480585>Your a incredibly powerful psychic, you can manufacture one.>Ask Nimrah about it.I don't trust any of the other teachers other than Nimrah, honestly.I'm honestly tempted to vote for summoning Celebi just for the chance of having fun time-shenanigan adventures.
>>5480585>>5480601Seconding this. Seems like a very solid option to further our own psychic abilities while not losing control/possession of our pokémon.Not to mention that Nimrah could both point us in the right direction and give us some pointers at being a mafiosa during our meeting.Let's put timey wimey shenanigans on the back burner though.
You can also try to replicate the purity chamber, its just the chamber uses science to be a bit stronger then the relic stone, and also youd need like, chalk its a whole ritual its very cool looking, but so is creating a relic stone.JUST MAKE SURE YOU MAKE THE RIGHT RELIC BOY HOWDY WOULD YOU BE EMBARASSED IF YOU MESS THIS ONE UP
>>5480585>Try to research shadow and figure out a third option
>>5480624Surely we won't summon Giratina and/or get sent to the distortion realm again. Right?
>>5480585>Try to research shadow and figure out a third option>Ask Nimrah about it
>>5480624It would be embarrassing and totally not have any major repercussions, right? hahaBut to be fair all of the options have a chance of going very very badly.
Seems like we all agree on, before working on making a legendary item to make mimi find more judge doom picturesi mean... talk to Nimrah.Yeah.
Okay... so you either have to recreate with magic a revolutionary technology, albeit one 15 years old... or you have to recreate a ancient blessing from Orres past... Easy! Simple. You can do this. You can do this. You... You need help. And there's only one place to get it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tTeAZVWwFEActually there were 3 places but Carrie and Tom don't seem like theyd be experts in this field. And they have lives! Let Carrie watch that movie she bought from Wide Tony, in fact she should invite Tom over and they can bond. So you go to your uncle.The light reflects off his glasses as he withdraws his stethoscope from Gremlin and frowns. "I must confess LadyNiamic... I do not know what is wrong with him.""...You don't?" You gesture at the apathetic pokemon sitting on the hospital bed. "Hes a shadow pokemon!""I believe the term is dark?" He raises a eyebrow as you sigh. You forget sometimes. Nimrah isn't a local. He visited the island... roughly 10 years ago? By then the last shadow pokemon had well been purified. That being said... it is a odd thing to miss. Sometimes Nimrah seems to be better with things then people, or history. Hes got gaps. Like hes been living under a rock, presumably a pretty comfortable one."Oh right..." He takes off the stenograph. "Shadow, that condition... Lady Niamic am many things, a doctor, a saboteur, a quartermaster. To say the least." He shakes his head. "But I am no therapist. The matters of the heart, closed, open, broken, these are mysteries to me." He strokes his chin. "However, I do have a defibrillator, perhaps that could do things.""No, it's not so literal." You lean back in your chair. "This sucks. How am I supposed to create a relic stone?""The item from when Celebi landed?" Nimrahs words give you a bolt of shock, why does he know about THAT. "Your father had me look into most of the, key items of the region in case we needed to... acquire things." He taps the fingers of his glove. "So the Relic stone, from what I've seen, is simply soaked in Celebi's power, but in the most diluted sense. It doesn't give things youth, it restores memories." He smiles thinly. "A miracle but compared to Celebi's power it has the heat of a painting of a fire. Why is that so vital?"You reach out and pick up Gremlin, the pokemon not squirming as you place him on your knee. Hes sortof like a doll, with weapons. And you're fond of dolls."It lets them remember what their heart is like, gives them something to look for." "...That seems simple enough to replicate." Nimah thinks. "You would need psychic power, not mere hex mania. Apologies Lady Niamic, but this is not your realm. This is the realm of mind... and dreams."You and Nimrah are very different people, but you come to the same realization at the same time."Suzie."
>>5480770>STRAW TIME! Build a voodoo doll to contact her! She'll know what to do!>You know how to use Suzies magic, you can do this by yourself! Besides Suzie is intense and might not be happy if your first contact is about another pokemon>...Wait the relic stone needed you to hang out with the shadow pokemon for a long time to open its heart gradually. Shouldn't you be like... playing with Gremlin and tabeling this once you got a plan for this Dream doll or whatever>Honestly a cursed dream doll to open hearts sounds... dangerous you should just try the psychic thing or something.
>>5480784>...Wait the relic stone needed you to hang out with the shadow pokemon for a long time to open its heart gradually. Shouldn't you be like... playing with Gremlin and tabeling this once you got a plan for this Dream doll or whateverPlus, we could get in trouble if we get caught.

>>5480789+1We need to max friendship first before we purify them.
>>5480784Supporting>>5480789Let's take it slow
Guess who woke up. Me.Guess what won. Low and slow baybay.Guess who'se writing? Me probbably, im a little scattered at the moment, so lets all do our best.
You are over thinking this. Or rather, getting ahead of yourself. You can try to make a relic stone... but then youd have to store it. And unless you supercharge that stone it won't work right now. Because Gremlin isn't that close to opening their heart. The relic stone is only good for that last push, and without a more involved purity chamber or the aid of a incredibly powerful pokemon (Which you aren't sure Suzie can reach, you haven't seen her fight) Gremlin cant use the stone. Those memories don't mean anything without experiencing friendship. The relic stone gives you a door but you need to give Gremlin something to fight for, a reason to actually try to go to the other side of the door. And until Gremlin is ready for that, a relic stone is just contraband."We should wait on this... I don't want to make too big a mess on my first day, I should get to training Gremlin and being his friend first, then we can work on stones." You pat Gremlins head.Nimrah smiles. "That's very kind of you. Well if you need anything let me know."Okay... so you have a plan but now you need to do recreation...But... what?Pick a pokemon bonding exercise>Movies! With Carrie!>Games with Tom>Go to explore the prison!>Go to the store and get second desert>Write in
>>5481561>>Go to explore the prison!>>Go to the store and get second desertGrab an ice cream cone and explore!
>>5481561>Go to explore the prison!
>>5481573Definitely grab the ice cream firstWe're not savages
The obvious choice, now that you have committed to saving Gremlin the classical way, is to raise your friendship the classical way. Which is walks and fights... well hopefully like, wild pokemon fights not riots.Though if someone ELSE were to start a riot and you just happened to use it to get a few pokemon fights in... it could be helpful.However you are not so sociopathic as to try to engineer something like that, at least, not simply to grind friendship.In addition you are not a savage, so you head back to the cafeteria to get Desert.A rather jovial fellow scoops you the ice cream, judging by the stripes he wears the man is in the same house as you, and he has a redden prison tattoo of a skull, with a chef hat on.Despite the gang tat he takes your money and hands you the food with little fuss. Hes not paying attention to you right now, and you don't really like attention so the feeling is mutual.You get something simple, just big vanilla cones. You see... you have no way of knowing what Gremlin likes to eat because of well, shadow stuff. So rather then risk them not liking chocolate or something, you stick to old reliable.And now... your ready. Where do you explore.>The Exercise Yard: has plenty of capturable pokemon, mostly rats pokemon and dark types, the Champ Crew lurk there>The Library: Occupied by Ghastgangers, also filled with books and has a nice musty smell. May have ghost pokemon.>Hit the Stench: The Stench appears to be this big waste area occupied by poison pokemon meant to clean it.

Okay a handy Asylum visit with BIG score in the random encounter.Lets get this chedder gamers.Does me anouncing im writing actually help since it takes like a hour for me to do these? idk
>>5482366It can when viting is close, so nobody casts votes during the lull and feels cheated when you use the old results.I usually do this in my quest.
You decide the best thing to explore is probbably the WORST place to explore. Or um... the scariest place.The Asylum! It's great, you don't have to worry that the person you are talking to is insane, you will KNOW they are insane.You take Gremlin out and both of you walk down the long winding corridor, the halls... which used to have plenty of thugs and conmen milling around slowly dwindle until... you reach the door outside.Well theres still like fences and such its not really outside, but they keep the Asylum seperated, by a forest of small radio spires that humm around you.You are starting to get freaked out, which is... not hard but you like to think you can handle things. Then again, you aren't as sure you can handle this as you did a few minutes ago. The noise in the backgrounds giving you a headache but its not even the noise its why its there.. what is in this building that needs such a thing.Then you hear rustling as the grass shifts, a figure is approaching, its getting closer... closer.."Ral?" A Green domed head pops from the grass.The Ralts stares at you, its head tilted.And yet, you still hear the rustle... theres something else here.>Go Gremlin! Lets catch this pokemon quick!>Don't move, dont spook the Ralts, wait for this forboeding force to approach>Wait, this place is too creepy! Run!>Run but take the ralts with youI was debating this whole time which encounter to run, i had two planned and im just doing both
>>5482448>Don't move, dont spook the Ralts, wait for this forboeding force to approachI know it might be better to book it with the Ralts, but I'm curious.
Oops the pictures spoilers! My badDont look gamers! avert your eyes!

>>5482448>Don't move, dont spook the Ralts, wait for this forboeding force to approach
You smile at the Ralt's its pretty cute but this approaching force seems ominous... your going to wait here for the creature to approach... that way when you have to run away you are perfectly prepared to.Their is the shine of light and the thing emerges from the grass.... well thing is a bit harsh. It's not a ghost or a pokemon. She's a person.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02JKjAY54nAA tattered blue shoulder cape billows above a mud stained straight jacket, red hair flowing underneath a tattered aluminum skull cape. Despite this the womans stance is straight, haughty, her body as sharp as anything covered in cloth could be.Most worrisome was the glittering nothing in her hand, a blade manifested from pure psychic energy."HALT NERDO WELL!" The woman shouts at you, her eyes focused on you as the Ralts stumbles in shock. "You are in the presence of Sir Planchett Sans Nom! Paladin of Coballion, witch do not lay a hex on the questing beast, before you, it is integral to my crusade!"You look at the Ralts who looks up at you with equal confusion.What?>Are you supposed to be a knight? To a... legendary pokemon?>Cobalion isn't from Orre>I saw the Ralts first that gives me right of fighting>I am not a witch I am a princess... I mean, a normal girl>Ralts are you seeing this?>Write in
Yes i spent like a hour debating over letting you recruit Planny the ralts or Planny the trainerThen i was like, wouldnt it be great if planny the trainer was also Don Quixote? Ultimately you got both.
>>5482473>I am not a witch I am a princess... I mean, a normal girl>write in>"You're a knight? I don't believe you! How could a knight be in this place?" ok she's insane, but maybe she can tell us something useful if we play along?Oh no, a crazie.Alright, should we befriend her or take the Ralts?And it's ironic that she's technically not wrong in Gurie being a witch.
>>5482473>Ralts are you seeing this?>Look Ralts, if you think she’s going to do inappropriate things to you, you can stick with me instead. I’ve fought off two perverts before.Would our hexes technically work on the trick room people? They’re certainly not Normal…

"...Ralts are you seeing this?" You look at the wild pokemon and gesture to the knight who frowns. "Watch your tongue. I am on a holy mission, and I will not have my position slan-""Look." You squat down to Ralt's level. "Ralts if your worried get behind me. I have fought perverts before.""CHURL!" Planchett is incensed. "I have sworn a oath of chasity! My blade is to purge this world of shadows. Not to slacken the thirst of harlots like yourself.""HEY!" You stand up glaring at the knight. "I am not a pervert! You can't just randomly accuse people of such things! Words can be hurtful.""Believe me witch, I do not need words to hurt you." Her eye shifts down to Gremlin who stares at her. "So. You keep a cursed familliar."Cursed? You look down at Gremlin. Can SHE see the shadow affliction? You do know that psychics can detect such things.... but she is crazy maybe shes just accusing him of being a dark type. Or maybe she lost it."The woman kneels, looking at the Ralts in the... dome. "Court Mage, you have been chosen for a most holy of undertakings. The dragon has stirred again and the king has been struck mad. With you by my side our adventuring party will be one step closer to reclaiming the sacred grail needed to vanquish such evil."????>Shes definitely a psychic... ask some questions, figure out if she KNOWS things, or just making stuff up>You're a knight, yes?

You smirk, lifting your hand and giving a haughty chortle. "Ohohoho you claim to be a knight, but if so then you MUST know that I, Gurie Niamic am a princess!" You toss your hair, digging into your inner brat. "I've already HAD a knight! Suzie the Strawlaced! I have had maids! I lived in a castle!"You hold your hand out. "You believe you can just recruit your vassals in MY kingdom? Perhaps... but not without a test! Only then, much like any maiden, will you prove worthy of the affection of your partner."The woman stares at you, seizing you up. "You do have the mark of royalty, I mistook you for the daughter of a jester... but no, your blood is assuredly blue."The woman takes a knee before you. "Know that my true liege is Coballion, my God. And before I can be true to any oath I MUST be true to my light. That being said. Should your quest not contradict my tenements, I will be humbled to prove my valor to you.

You point at Gremlin, who has, as usual just been watching. "You say you see the curse on my partner, and that you have been tasked with cleansing this nation of shadow."She nods. "This is true.""Then start with Gremlin. Bring a smile to my companions face, or the bliss of a chuckle."The woman leans down, looking Gremlin in the eye, who stares back unblinking. "Are you sure about this? This is within my duty, but to ensure that Ralts becomes my squire... we will have to hasten this rapidly."The woman stands up and turns around, walking a few yards away and dismissing her psychic sword. "You see... when one is possesed by demons, or wishes to swear brotherhood to his knights... there is only one true way to do both."She throws her cape back, and pulls out a... duskball! Not a safari-dusk ball like Carrie has. It's a legitimate pokeball. The ball opens with red light that swirls around the madwoman as her free uncaped hand is surronded by light that hardens into a copper metal handle. "Squire, are my arms ready." Planchett eyes the Honedge which makes a sound simillar to metal scraping stone. "Good. Pull out your arms Lady Niamic, by your demand we must duel.">WAIT! This is not laughter this is just violence. You are supposed to do this a different way! Do psychic stuff! Juggle!>Um er... *Toss out mimikyu*>Wait... wheres your second pokemon? >Write in>>5482508Yes but not the way you think it would. Insane people are just insane. Planny however, is a psychic as seen by the fact that they are able to simply create swords. Psycho cut isnt a easy move for a human to learn and in a prison... the fact that guards can not disarm her is very dangerous.
>>5482719>>Um er...Use Gremlin.Fights can boost friendship, and this can be a good way to get exp for gremlin even though we will need to purify them first to get that EXP
>>5482725This. Though it is worth asking about her second mon. Orre and all.

>>5482750>>5482962What are you talking about, she ABSOLUTELY is her second pokemon like >>5482759 is saying. What proper knight would leave all the fighting to their squires with the realm on the line.And with that now on my mind…>>5482719>Er… Princess, I choose you?It’s probably a terrible idea, but what faster way to raise friendship than joining as the second pokemon like Planny? We can hex her Honedge, and possibly disrupt her psychic swords directly so we won’t be completely useless.Then we can try and pull the whole “noble sacrifice” thing for Gremlin. Hopefully the stab wounds won’t be too deep…
>>5482732Changing my vote to>>5483078Anon's got a good point
"Okay... Gremlin go!" You send Gremlin out and wait for Planchett to send out her second pokemon. She nods as Gremlin approaches, but doesnt reach for any other poke balls."Um... Planny?" You ask. "Where is your other pokemon."She beats a sword free hand on her chest. "The Code of swords tenement 5, thou shall NOT recoil before thine enemy. As the light of Cobalion shines upon me I will never dictate others to do more then I myself will give. The blue cloth wraps around Planchetts arm, and the cloth glows as energy from the madwoman is absorbed by the malevolent metal blade. >Honedge uses Commander>Sir Planchett's Attack Sharply increases>Sir Planchett's Special Attack Sharply increases>Sir Planchett's Defense Sharply increases>Sir Planchett's Special Defense Sharply increases>Sir Planchett's Speed Sharply increasesThe woman smiles, her eyes glowing as blue as she pulls the sheath off her Honedge.

You crouch down to Ralts level and smile. "Okay Ralt's you are up."The ralts looks at you and nods, running up alongside Gremlin who does not look at their partner.Planchett however, does, and frowns. "Your highness I MUST protest, how are you to deliver the squire to me, if you already are having it pledge to you?"You shrug. "Well Sir Planny, if you are correct that fighting is the best way to open up your heart, you should impress your 'squire' by fighting them?"She sighs. "Very well, your Highness."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02JKjAY54nA"AGILE STYLE!"She bows and you ready a command but before you can even utter a word she just, moves, like a white blur she swings her blade at Gremlin, the ghost blade glowing green as a shallow cut emerges on Gremlins chest and he is sent hurtling back."Fury Cutter." She smiles.This... may not be easy... Granted shes not supposed to win just make your pokemon smile. So she better not knock your Gremlin out!"Im?" Gremlin stumbles up somewhat dazed.>Status effects again! Use the screech and Ralts... do something disorienting>Attack!

"Go you two, weaken her with status attacks!"Gremlin runs forward, using his arms to scramble towards Planny and gives out a horrific yell. Planny takes a step back clutching her ears as Ralts focuses.The horn on her head glows purple and a large spray of noxous goo strikes Planny. The woman raises a arm, her jacket stained with the toxic material as she is badly poisoned. Her skin starts to pale as her eyes go dizzy.W-was that it."STRONG STYLE!" Plannchett yells leaping in the air, her eyes closed. "CROSS POISON!"The Knights blade turns purple as she desends down at Ralts, her blades poison matching the corrosive spray she is drenched in. Ralts is knocked to the floor by a one handed shove by Gremlin, knocking the fairy aside before the sword blow hits."IIIIIIIIIIIM" Impidimp is sent hurtling towards a radio tower and raises his hands. A barrier forming around him and cushioning the fall. There is a crash as metal meets imp meat. Or would if not for the barrier bouncing Gremlin away from the tower.Your Impidimp lands on their back, winded as the barrier widens around the two pokemon."You did well Familliar." The woman says, swaying in the air. She doesnt seem that banged up but the shadow panic disoriented her, just like it did Miror B.But that attack was no joke. Impidimp could not take a second one of those.>Attack! Take her down!>Exploit the toxic, stall this out, use your barriers to block things until she wilts.>Stall, try to heal Gremlin>Write in

Planny raises her blade and charges, but in her confusion she swings at the radio tower instead of her target... if she had one. Honedge's blade hits a cable, and sparks flare out, singing her. She stumbles back and you have your chance!Ralts raises their hand and a blue water circles the both of them, the power of Life Dew restoring Gremlins wounds... though the Ralts himself is untouched.Gremlin seems to nod and stands up, much better. "Im!" The Impidimp nods at Ralts, feeling much better.Then Impidimp raises and sticks their tongue out at Planny, their eyes rolled back and their face twisted in a ghoulish smile. Planny glares at Gremlin... falling for his swagger.>Shadow Panic turns into SwaggerPlanchet blurs again, charging only for Gremlin to back up and trip the disoriented knight, crashing her head into a beam.The knights muttering gets louder, you think she's readying something. Maybe one of those "Strong style" attacks she seems to be using.>Hit her hard!
