>>53843687>>How does the weather moves work? It's the dead of night, then someone uses Sunny Day, and suddenly it's midday. Does it work like that or what?It's more than likely a localized weather effect. Like Rain Dance would make it rain within the radius of a few city blocks, or something>>Now, what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.Using what you find to get by, finding niche uses for things, that kinda stuff>>Does actual medicine exist, or does everyone just rely on berries like Oran Berries, Pecha Berries?It's probably super uncommon. Why use meds in most cases when there's a magic berry that heals wounds or cures nausea>>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world? Also related, one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?Could just be a general term/symbol in that world.
>>53843687>Weather lol All weather is localized, either with a small sun, rainy cloud or chilling skies, it all comes from the pokemon>Gameplay dungeons? I like how they made the moves work, I guess>Medizine? Are bandages and obligatory rest considered medicine? I mean berries might help stop a deep bleeding or numb the pain, but you can only go so far with them...>Pokemon? Pokeball? Where?? Probably lost knowledge from ancient times, possible hint that humans did exist at some point?
>>53843687>>How does the weather moves work? It's the dead of night, then someone uses Sunny Day, and suddenly it's midday. Does it work like that or what?I bet weather moves create the general feeling of the weather rather than actually making it like that, say, Sunny Day is like a flare but actually feels like the sun. >>Now, what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.Really just the vibes the game gives off. I don't even need a battler, just give me an Animal Crossing knockoff and I'd be pleased as a peach>>Does actual medicine exist, or does everyone just rely on berries like Oran Berries, Pecha Berries?This comes down really hard to personal stance, but I view those berries as 'game-isms' and as such actual medicine is probably a thing. Same with healing moves. >>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world? Also related, one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?I like to think of it as a 'no one knows, it simply always has been' kind of thing. >Guild Question: Before joining this guild thing, do you have a completely different pokemon in mind than the one you're currently using, and why? For example, you were planning to be this Pokemon but it's kinda overrated/legendary/too strong and decided against it or you wanted this Pokemon but some other member got to use it before you came and etc, etc.Do you mean 'what would I be had I found myself in the pmd world?' I would have gone with whatever personality test thing determined I would end up as. Choosing Skiddo was kind of an off the cuff thing, didn't want to be any of the obvious choices so I just kinda chose one I liked.
>>53843687>Before joining this guild thing, do you have a completely different pokemon in mindIt woulda been a wooper/mareep team, but it's hard to write for a team that can't grab anything, so I went with plan B.
>>53843687>>If not this pokemon, then who?? Some of you may remember them... It was my first team idea, they were>Paranoid/schizo scorbunny (Hmn bro)>Goofy fennekin (lil sis)>Brash Braixen (big sis)>(bot shown) Old simisear (gramp) I felt their story was too developed & complex for a collaborative writting board, so they got scrapped (for now) I do have plans for a story with them, but it'll be not very soon I'm afraid
>haha, i love my partner>persim time :)>i love my p-
alright but now.. what pokemon could be a good choice for an antagonistic mystery dungeon team? how their personalities would be?
Just a heads up for those still using a 3DS modded or unmodded, there have been reports that the latest update that Nintendo pushed out today has been bricking a lot of systems both modded AND unmodded, so be sure to back up everything before you update if you must update it.
>>53844014you vill buy ze switch
>>53844014>put out 3ds update after all ways to buy games have been removedbut why? They gain literally nothing from this.
>>53844022Someone at Nintendo is STILL seething over people modding 3DSes, the patch seems to be intentionally targeted at modded ones but in typical Nintendo fashion they fucked up and are bricking even unmodded systems.
>>53844028i wonder if a lawsuit could come from thi-oh wait nothing will ever come out of it
>>53844014>>53844017>>53844022>>53844028>>53844032>YOU WILL BUY ZHE SWITCH AND YOU WILL OWN NOTHING
But yeah, someone should probably include a note in the mega or something about it until it gets worked around, since that GTI hack will no longer work on a 3DS if its not already modded (and at least v11+ Luma)
>>53844039If anything this probably loses them a miniscule amount of money because of people who are waiting for Home to come out to port from older gens. Why are they so anal?
>>53844043Any fan games, custom roms, or anything will no longer work either if your modded 3DS is out of date or unmodded. RIP, lmfao.
>>53844050Why would an update i'm never going to get matter for the shit i already have on my console?
emulation chads we just can't stop winning
>>53844053Well, nothing if your homebrew software is up to date.If its outdated or unmodded entirely? Can't load shit except for official nintendo games, the downloading of most of them died with the eshop. Nintendo's being real petty with this patch.
>>53844061But why would out of date homebrew matter if the games i have now already work fine?
>>53843987Reject realityEmbrace delusion
>>53844064So you only play games directly licensed by Nintendo?Good for you, but some people want to own the hardware they bought and play whatever they want on it, including new romhacks/fan games such as the ones included in OP.
>>53844077Putting unlicensed software on a Nintendo system ANY Nintendo system is theft and a crime. What you are doing is very illegal and I am reporting you for encouraging this dangerous and illegal crimes.
>>53844077my 3ds is hacked though? I dont care about games being "official" but the wording's making it sound like i'm fucked even if i dont update a single thing.>>53844081>no funny tabsc'mon man at least try.
>>53844085Reread what I'm posting ESL-kun. You're fine if your homebrew software is up to date (Luma v11 or above) or, obviously, if you never download the update.Though if you don't download the update you will no longer be able to access 3DS online services that are still active, such as Pokemon Bank.
>>53844095it's late sue meanyways when's the fanmade online server gonna be good to go? I'm sick of these updates by dumbass devs that act like the japanese soldiers that didn't realize WW2 ended.
>>53844104Hopefully this will be the end of it, since current Luma still works fine, and presumably some sort of workaround will be found for installing homebrew (there is already some progress on that being mentioned in their discord btw, apparently there has been no patch for exploits in DSIware games...though naturally that requires you to have already downloaded those before the eshop shut down, but still its a start). But man this happening right on top of the shitstorm with the HOME delay, or whatever the fuck shills are insisting happened there, and the raid bug with SV. Nintendo and GF have been pissing off a lot of people lately lmao.>And STILL no new PMD news despite the copyright thing earlier this year before the Presents, and the DMCA takedowns of mystery dungeon content around the internet from them when they did thatI wouldn't be surprised if they started bricking older Pokemon games and nintendo consoles/games on them in general just to try to boost sales or some dumb shit, I'm sure.
>>53844118>Hopefully this will be the end of itwe've been thinking this for like 3-4 years by now. But why wait until now to lock down a bunch of methods? The damage is already done. It's like if they put out an update for the WiiU.
reposting /qst/ link at someone's behest>>>/qst/5668924thread 2 is up, though I can't update for a bitthere's also a website for it now if you want to reread the first thread, get to know its mechanics, and/or just get a summary of the main pairwill be focusing most of my attention there from now onbye again
2/3 Kid named context: https://arch.b4k.co/vp/thread/53817656#53823685 I'll upload these to the booru myself in a bulk when they're all done, also>Who would be spectating the match?
New story featuring Smith and Furret! (She got a little carried away and ended up writing the title for this one.)https://rentry.org/iy7m3I'm still a bit iffy on the quality of this one compared to my other works so far, i feel i kinda rushed it just to get it out so i can move on to future stuff, so im worried that the story might end too abruptly, or that the pacing is too fast. But, i still think you guys will like it, and i had fun writing it, so its all good. Expect more of these 2 goobers in the future.
>>53843687>>How does the weather moves work? It's the dead of night, then someone uses Sunny Day, and suddenly it's midday. Does it work like that or what?It'd just be the feeling of weather, not the actuality to control things like the sun/moon. So instead of it turning midday, it's just really hot and flare-like at night after a sunny day, for instance>>Now, what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.>>Does actual medicine exist, or does everyone just rely on berries like Oran Berries, Pecha Berries?Sure>>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world? Also related, one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?Just a general term. Also, about the balls, no.
>>53843687How does the weather moves work? It's the dead of night, then someone uses Sunny Day, and suddenly it's midday. Does it work like that or what?Maybe its like DBZ where characters can just create artificial moons>Now, what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.That's hard, i cant put my finger on just one thing, i find it fun overall. I do enjoy grinding for recruits tho>Does actual medicine exist, or does everyone just rely on berries like Oran Berries, Pecha Berries?Stuff like vitamins and ginseng apparently exist in PMD, so i wouldn't be surprised if advanced medicine existed. As a concept, it probably exists, as iirc, in Explorers, Marill and Azurill's mom gets sick and they are looking for medicine/a cure>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world? Also related, one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?Yeah i got nothing for this one. Pokeballs definitely don't exist, but it's a simple enough design that surely someone happened to recreate it by chance>>53844039I hadn't heard about any of this stuff until i checked the thread this morning, shit sucks. Fuck nintendo>>53844910It's a bit sad to hear you'll be less active here, but i do sincerely hope your /qst/ project goes well and you have fun. Good luck charm!
>>53845424>>>Now, what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.fuck didn't answer cause i got sidetrackeduhh... item management
Wich one do I use for the comic? I feel like keeping Lliam all white might clash with how I draw Clara>>53845222 I am so far behind reading all these stories, I should really start reading these again xP
>>53843994I think a good evil team would be>Rude Alolan Vulpix >Energetic Sandshrew>Quiet Fletchling
>>53845546I think of going for 2
>>53845222Still loving the contrast between these two, can't wait to see how they react to the rest of the guild.>that team nameapex kek
>>53845725>evil team>ice typeimagine my shock
>>53845725No, no, that sounds like they'd be too cute and silly to be evil imo.
>>538439941. Some sort of chuuni NFE (ideally a popular OC choice like eevee or riolu to really sell the chuuni angle) that thinks THEY are a reincarnated human and seeks to avert the prophecied disaster (or whatever the game's plot is), not realizing they are a pawn being manipulated by the BBEG the whole time. Has been convinced (You) are the bad guy.2. Their energetic childhood friend who's obsessed with adventure and wants to be a knight or explorer or something. Naive, hotheaded, reckless, and doesn't really think things through. Thoroughly unconcerned with (pr unaware of) anything that seems suspicious about the circumstances of their journey and is simply enjoying the ride. Something unevolved and knight-themed, like a Galarian Farfetch'd but maybe with a more cocky look on their face than a stern one.3. A support/healing mon like Hattrem or Eldegoss. A more experienced adventurer who has joined them on their quest and helps them along, always having just the right advice or knowledge to keep them on the right (wrong) path when they're lost. Totally not an asset of the BBEG. Will betray the other two the moment they outlive their usefulness (perhaps right after the team finally defeats you, leading you+partner to team up with the other two to escape whatever trap was just left for you all).
>>53846455i for one welcome the tall and bright's leadership.
>>53845222Just finished it, really good! I enjoy Smith and Furret's interactions a lot, and your writing is very descriptive and well done.
>>53843733>medicine is probably a thingyeah, and some fanfics go in length about pokemon biology and it's super cool to read.>>53845222>titlenice, looks like it's going to be a good readAlso for those who missed it last thread, here's the link to the booru : cloverguild.orgwhich can also be found at the bottom on the rentry
what's the name of that PMD comic with different art styles and multiple stories, in which people said was at times a little too edgy?
>>53846912pmd anamnesis is what its called its a anthology with different artstylea and tones for each story so Its both edgy or extremely lighthearted depending on the storyOh yea after your done reading it could ya tell us I love to discuss this comic
>>53847048I have a bucket list of things I want to read first, but I added this comic to my list. I'll leave a comment in the thread if I finish one of the stories
>>53846751 Are there any others appart from borne of caution that do go in depth on pokemon biology??
booru down for a moment while I update some stuff
>>53847359A couple, but I don't have the names on the off the top of my head
>>53843687>Guild QuestionI was initially thinking Furret, because that's my favorite mon, but changed my mind because of my Gates run (plus it'd kinda suck to be quadruped after spending your entire life bipedal)
>>53843687>How does the weather moves work?It’s kinda weird, huh? My best guess is it saturates your surroundings with “type energy” that simulates weather in the local area. So Rain Dance uses Water-type energy to make artificial rain, and Sunny Day creates a fake mini sun out of Fire-type energy.>what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.I guess it’s satisfying to build/train teams? I’m not really a fan of PMD gameplay overall, though.>Does actual medicine existI’m sure there’s some real medicine and medical procedures, but Pokemon medical knowledge wouldn’t be as advanced as modern humans’.>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world?Well, it definitely isn’t short for Pocket Monster like it is IRL. It must have a different history/etymology, and it’s a coincidence that it’s the same word used by humans (although that’s a pretty big coincidence admittedly...)>one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?No, it’s probably just a random symbol. It’s a very basic symbol, easy for anyone to invent independently.By the way, that’s the flag I used for my base in RTDX.>Before joining this guild thing, do you have a completely different pokemon in mindNo. Ribombee and Sneasel/Weavile are among my favorite Pokemon, so I wanted to use them for this guild. And I chose to make Ribombee the main character since being tiny seemed like an interesting/unique sort of angle.>>53844910I finally finished reading the first thread. Great work! I liked the characters and setting. I’ll join the current thread when I get the chance.>>53845140Looks good. It’s cool that you’re making a whole comic like this.>>53846959I read this series the last time it was posted in the thread. I think I skipped some comics, though, and I disliked some of the ones I read. I remember liking the ones with the sad Teddiursa, suffering Psyduck, blue-eyed human, and artist Torchic.
who's recruiting him to their party?i hope other people get the joke here
>>53843687>PMD Questionnaire Time>How does the weather moves work? It's the dead of night, then someone uses Sunny Day, and suddenly it's midday. Does it work like that or what?It's more of a localized thing, probably just saturates the surrounding area with light or creates a small raincloud or whatever>Now, what's the best aspect of pmd for you, in terms of gameplay.Getting to actually BE the Pokémon and physically carry out the moves instead of just commanding them. I mean, you still just press a button to pick the move, but the battles feel a bit more dynamic and less menu-y. Until Pokkén, that was basically as close to living the dream as it got for me.>Does actual medicine exist, or does everyone just rely on berries like Oran Berries, Pecha Berries?Probably, but either for injuries more serious than a normal battle or for non-poison-type sicknesses>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world? Also related, one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?If the "PMD is future where humans are extinct" thing is true, then it's probably leftover from when Pokémon used to live with humans and adopted the term from them. It's probably lost all context now and nobody knows its origin, what it's short for (pocket monster), or that it's even short for anything at all. OR, it's just a product of the fact we are reading their dialogue in our human language for the purpose of the game so it uses the word for them we know, but in their actual language their word for themselves has no shared origin with the word Pokémon at all.
>>53848509based, blue mage best mage
>>53843687>Guild Question: Before joining this guild thing, do you have a completely different pokemon in mind than the one you're currently using, and why? For example, you were planning to be this Pokemon but it's kinda overrated/legendary/too strong and decided against it or you wanted this Pokemon but some other member got to use it before you came and etc, etc.I came in with no plans, I make new characters all the time (even with nothing to use them in) so I just threw something together. Kaiji was made up on the spot, Kris was originally created in a void mid-late last year for nothing in particular so I just tweaked his personality a bit, and Ronnie was originally nothing more than an example of "look you can make whatever batshit character you want idgaf" on the short-lived server I ran with a couple friends and the remnants of last year's /trash/ PMDrp threads (also tweaked a bit for use in the new setting here).I guess I had a Sylveon character I used last year but she was made for a specific setting and I never planned to use her here. She will be making a sort-of cameo in one of my future stories but mostly as a backstory element for another character.
>>53845729>>53846601Glad you guys liked it, expect more... eventually. I'll start writing again soon>>53848509He seems polite, and blue mages are pretyy kino, he can definitely join.>>53847464Would have been a wild coincidence if you had made a Furret lmao. But Gus is still pretty cool, i wouldn't have it any other way
I joined the other anons that were drawing their characters as RPG classes and things of that nature.So here's Sneasel as a thief (combining 2 thief outfits from different FF games) and Booker as a white mage.>>53848509I'd recruit him, he seems like a cool guy.I've got basically no experience with FF, so I didn't get the joke. But after looking up what blue mages are all about, it looks like they learn new magic by copying it from enemies. So I see what you did there.
>>53847359Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but I remember this really neat PMD webcomic called Rangers of Sky starring an isekai'd Woobat. It ticks off every personal box I like about the whole "waking up in an animal body" trope. It's still early on in the story, but it's good.Don't get me started on Borne of Caution, with the way Act 2 has been going recently I'm never getting invested in a fanfic like this again lol
>>53848509>>53848894There's zero point in a Pokemon wearing clothes, they lack certain features down there to be ashamed about.
>>53849055True, they don't need to cover anything up, but that's not the only reason to wear clothes.You're forgetting the most important thing: fashion.
>>53849055maybe my chara just wants to pretend for a day, what of it?clothes would be detrimental to grassmons due to lessened exposure to the sun. They'd also be a big hindrance to watermons too.
>>53849055sorry anon, sexo is canon. what do you think the S in SMD stands for
>>53849241>I tried to warn you>with Its power to make things bigger, I could've stopped shrinkgate>but you turned your back on me>this is the future you chose
Team Cozy is back for the umpteenth time. This time, they see that mountain and climb it alongside Team Marsh. This is Part 2 of a soon-to-be 3 part story, so go back and read Part 1 if you haven't. https://rentry.org/zw7p4This one was probably the most challenging one to write. Dialogue between 4 characters is hard, as is writing a story that's almost entirely within a dungeon. As always, any advice is welcome, as writing dungeon trips isn't my strong suit.
>page 8it has never been more over than it is right now
>>53849866Just finished reading this, another really good story chespin. It's really awesome to see Team Cozy get dubs.>Toge leaving them a wandFucking kek
WE ARE BACK BABY.After countless hours of troubleshooting, the booru is back! It has been up for a couple of hours already, I'm pretty sure everything's stable. And it's also faster now as a bonus, not that it needed to desuWas so fucking sad yesterday trying to make this thing work but now I'm so happycloverguild.org

>>53851192We have never been more back! 8)
>>53849866Just finished it, that was great! All of the fight scenes were well done, and I liked the new powers Chespin and Wooper got at the end. Sure hope no one in the guild finds out about that wish stone.
i need more shitposts.
>>53845222spoiler in this post for skorupi's story Just read it, really good story!I loved your description of the guild, now that we have those official sketches describing the building, it's cool to see a story using them. Also Skorupi's interaction with Lliam was pretty cool, it was easy, yet subtle to understand why they got accepted.>Are outlaws a sensitive subject for her?Oh no... she was an outlaw before, wasn't she? I'm calling it.I love how she always calls smith "little buddy" btw, very cute
>>53852133thank you king, I am glad you enjoyed.>she was an outlaw before, wasn't she?Honestly never even had that idea at all, but that would be really fucking interesting. maybe i will even incorporate that somehow in the future?
>>53852183>spoilersgo for it! Maybe she has an indirect connection to Kiyo's band... would be fun to discuss with kiyo-anon

I HAVE DONE ITMy ETF outline is done. Over 5.9k words, made up of sentence fragments all in the form of greentext/bullet points, so the real story will be SIGNIFICANTLY longer.I'll start writing tomorrowish (I'm lazy), I have two or three stories I still need to read.>>53852945Kris would order every sweet on the menuKaiji would cancel all of that except the cheapest one because he's not emptying his wallet just for Kris to be full after the first two or three because his eyes are bigger than his stomach

>>53852945do they have taco bell
>>53853436i don't think so, unfortunately. Maybe if Ross explains what a taco is to Beast he'd be able to make one
Finally finished my ETF story. Not 100% happy with the action scenes, but I feel like my last few stories were just shepherding the characters between dialogue scenes so I wanted to balance action and talking a little more.https://rentry.org/ugb85
>>53853458Pretty kino story phanpy, as per usual from you. You did a great job of making the area surrounding the rift sound incredibly chaotic, and the settings for the fights were pretty interesting. On top of all that I got some good laughs out of the characters interacting. Good shit.
>>53853458Good shit, Cyndaquil's dialogue cracks me up as usual.
>>53853458very good read as usual phanpy-anon. the battle of "wills" between alakazam and cyndaquil, the amicable cofagrigus in the temple ruins and the banter between team misfits all had me giggling
I've been recruiting more and more guildmates in RTDX. It's real nice to see so many now-familiar faces join my team.>>53845222This was good! Kind of straightforward, but it was nice to see these two finally join the guild. I look forward to seeing how they interact with the guildmates.Also, the team name was hilarious, and definitely sounds like something Furret would make. Smith's ability to resist embarrassment is impressive, with how he wears that bow and accepts that team name.>>53849866I finally got around to reading the first part. I liked the serious, introspective sections of it--I think you're handling them well. Also, you said you were unsure about the ending, but I thought it was fine.I'll be sure to read Part 2 soon.>>53851185Thanks for your hard work!I kept checking the site because I noticed it was down for a while, hoping nothing was wrong. I'm glad to see it's back, and glad to see you're happy again. Happy Linoone is best Linoone.>>53852279Every part with Chatot and Team Skull was so annoying. Playing Orion reminded me why everyone hates Chatot.>>53852945Booker probably has a major sweet tooth, since his species' primary food source is sugar-rich nectar. He'll get something sweet, but he'd have to share with Sneasel since it'd probably be too big for him to eat by himself.Sneasel likes tropical fruits. They're new to her since she spent most of her life in the frozen north. She may get some sort of tropical alcoholic drink.>>53853436>>53853441Tacos are simple, Beast could totally make one.>>53853313Great! I'm sure that feels nice. Good luck on turning the outline into the final draft.>>53853458And congrats on finishing your story. Nice to see more people finishing up their ETF submissions. I'll read this one later.
>>53853458Always like seeing more of these four misfits. cyndaquil's definitely the highlight of these stories for me, especially when it seemed like he was creeping even Alaklanzam out.that poor cofragigus though
>>53852945three 4lokos and the uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh motherfuckin uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh dusknoir pack
>Badge progressI fucked up.All the pieces almost fit but not quite. I spent the entire day trying to recover them. And I had some ideas but modifying the base seems to work out as the best solution.
>>53853883F, i hope stuff works out. idk anything about the process, but it sounds like it would lead to a lot of frustration. Keep your chin up king
(pic unrelated)>>53853883Oof - hopefully it works out.
>>53853543>>53853561>>53853590>>53853718Thank you! I don't know if this is spoilers for the next story I'm writing or not, but I want to bring Cofagrigus back in the follow up to my ETF story. He is a ghost, so it seems reasonable that he wouldn't be trapped underneath the temple
>>53854051I'd love to see him return, i really like him.
>>53853883Dang, sorry to hear that. It's good that you have an idea for a solution, at least. I'm sure you can find a way to fix it. Good luck!>>53852183>>53852210Missed these posts, but I wanted to mention: I had the same thought when I was reading the story. That line made me wonder if she's actually a crook, and she's just acting nice to hide her true evil plans. Either that, or she regrets her past illegal actions and is overcorrecting by being extremely sweet and friendly. Or she could just genuinely be a nice person, I dunno.
>>53853910Why does the tepig have fur tufts? I
>>53853458Excited to read it!!>pic Cynda missed every shot but I gotta respect that he tries aiming with his eyes closed>>53853648>pic I love seeing that stuff. Also Furret and Sentret have the exact same stats, interesting.>Thanks for your hard work!Thank you and the others for tagging and organizing all the art, it's amazing work>>53853883You're the ultimate problem solver, I'm sure you'll find a solution.
Do you guys have non-PMD music in mind that could fit PMD in a new game? I was reading Booker anon's story with the FF music and thought about it for curiosity's sake https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qggeWHhs4E0
How does the guild, (and the rest of clover town) deal with garbage? Do they burn it?
>>53854348"Etrian Odyssey IV- On an Adventure Gliding Through the Skies" comes to mind, for some reason :P
>>53854540We (that is, I) make the assumption that the PMD world has - by fiat and the fact that probably no one would want to deal with the other case - functional and efficient internal plumbing and waste management systems on a generally globalized level.Inedible scraps of food and offal - and things like that - can probably be composted.According to like 15 seconds worth of google searches, pre-industrial societies tended to either re-use or recycle objects if at all possible rather than just throwing them out.The remaining portion is probably burnt, yeah.Or possibly the answer is "Throw it in mystery dungeons. I ain't gotta explain shit."
>>53854540It gets fed to grimer and trubbish.
>>53854649>job request in the sewer dungeon
>>53854649>>53854764Pokemon don't piss or shit. Realistically a fair number of pokemon would just explode, burn away into dust, melt or just straight up die, their bodies are already impossible.
Pranks that would go too far #1 : hide Gus's shell
>>53854348Not really related but my brother can play PMD songs on his accordion. I'll see if I can get him to record himself and post in thr threads
>>53854838all pokemon are girls???
>>53855381That's fucked up, how could anyone possibly do something so awful??
>>53855381Pranks that would go too far #2 : cyndaquil with attract tm
>>53855381#2: sending an anonymous confession letter to Cyndaquil to bask in the ensuing chaos#3: moving Sneasel into an unfamiliar dungeon while she's asleep and littering some adventuring supplies and a map of a different continent#4: replacing Totodile's stash with virgin drinks snd switching the labels#5: hum advertisement jingles into Chespin's ear while he is asleep so it's stuck in his head all day#6: acquire some Smeargle paint and make a fake Ross trail going into various guildmembers' rooms so they think he was snooping#7: attach papier-mâché Absol horn to Kris while he is asleep, see how long until he realizes his horn did not actually grow back#8: take a large visible bite out of everything in the pantry at night, leave trail of crumbs to another guildmember's room to frame them#9: draw angry eyebrows on all of Cassie's favorite Pokémon so they aren't cute anymore#10: kill Ronnie
>>53856440so this is what would happened if /pmdg/ met the joker.........
>>53856458 Yeah, good thing he's not real...
>>53856440All of these are terrible... #10 being the only acceptable prank, in all honesty
>>53856440wtf who would do something as mean as this............
>>53854348I'm playing Klonoa right now and honestly most of the OST wouldn't sound out-of-place in the PMD series at all.https://youtu.be/pG5QXIsWhZw
>>53856440>#5All of these are awful but this shit is just way too far.
>>53852945If the pucture is anything to go by, apparantly a milkshake. In all honestly, he'd see what seafood offerings they have>>53855381I would stab u. It would send him into a nervous breakdown.
>>53856966how u stabbin someone without your scalchop
>>53849866Great story, looking forward to the team checking out pokemon square! The Togepic plot twist was cool to see. Also that stone is an incredible find, really curious to know what they could wish for... Hopefully they try wishing for more wishes lol
Reminder: Fat Albert is the canon protagonist of Gates to Infinity.
>>53853648Aw shit. Pretty cool.
>>53857690That's fucking hilarious
>>53857690I think I may give GTI another chance and make sure to pick Tepig this time around
Who the fuck is Fat Albert?
>>53858051Wrong answer, man. Show 'im.
Hey, Ribombee-anon, I just finished your ETF story. And I gotta say, I liked it. Like, really really liked it. Might even be my favorite story to come out of this little guild project. I didn't use your background music exactly since YouTube doesn't play in the background, so I had to find the best alternatives on soundcloud.I REALLY liked that dungeon you built, especially the last zone and boss room. That kinda weird, surrealistic shit is RIGHT up my alley. Great choice of soundtrack there, too. I'm glad you didn't have Gus tag along on this dungeon, he would've been dead immediately kek
"ICE TYPES could be here" he thought, "I've never been in this dungeon before. There could be ICE TYPES anywhere." The calm wind felt good against his bare chest. "I HATE ICE TYPES" he thought. Monster House Theme reverberated his entire mind, making it pulsate even as the 200 Poke Spinda Shake circulated through his powerful thick veins and washed away his (merited) fear of the warmth-challenged after dark. "With a Wooper partner, you can go anywhere you want" he said to himself, out loud.
>>53857670lmfaoo"except Sneasel, she's one of the good ones"
>>53858288>pic I can't believe Wooper is a gas sniffer.........Guild-related pastas are top tier
>>53858315nah, wooper's just a gummi drink chugger
I saw Cyndaquil at a food store in Capim Town yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for a signature or anything.He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Pecha Berries in his hands without paying.The Kecleon at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear him, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.When Kecleon took the berries and started weighting them on the balance, Cyndaquil stopped him and told him to weight them all individually “to prevent any premature priceculation,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After the merchant weighted each berry and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting him by yawning really loudly.
>>53858448>yawninghe was moaning, most likely.
>>53858448>Phanpy... I need you to get rid of my porn collection... Magazines, videos, some security footage I bought on the Nexus... There are snuff films in there, Phanpy. If torchic sees all the pictures I took of her feet while she was sleeping... It's all in the box in the basement labelled "guildmon fanfics"... Before you ask: yes, there are fanfics in there, they're just not of you... Actually, they're a part of the collection, but that doesn't matter now... You've gotta do this for me, Phan. You've got to destroy my porn stash... And I mean DESTROY that shit, kid... Seriously, the hentai alone is enough to get a man put away... Hentai is the Japanese word for "pervert", mate, and that's what I am... That's what your Cyndaquil is... All the fat globs of semen I've wasted masturbating to itemization and vore over the years... And I'm a strong ejaculator, Phan... I'm as sterile as a surgery room, but I cum like a geyser every time... I think part of the thrill was always seeing if I could get any of it in my mouth... The first time I did it was a complete accident, but the taste, Phan... The taste was unlike anything I had ever experienced before... I started to crave it... It was like a drug to me... And that's coming from a guy who did a lot of blow in the 00s... Usually off of the ass-cheek mousepad in my room with a Vaporeon on... I actually have some footage of that in my porn collection... Which, again, you REALLY need to get rid of... I cannot overstate the importance of wiping that shit from the face of the Earth... Okay, what else, what else? Oh, you can have the slice of cake from Torchic's birthday that I've been saving... I mean, I took a bite out of it, but it's not like I have herpes or anything... Wait... Do genitals count? Never mind, I'm dying now... In summation: great Pokemon, great responsibility, burn my porn, eat my cake... Bleh..
>>53853458Just read it. Absolutely insane adventure. My favorite part was the temple I think, you described the atmosphere very well, and the battle with Cofagrigus was hype. Also the fact that it was a fertility temple!?? lmfaooAnd I was completely mind-blown by that Lapras reply holy shit, she destroyed him. The docks will smell of spaghetti for eternity big fan of your stories
Oh god why is branching out so long, it even has chapters! Who wrote this?
Lore question: how long would it take to rank up, realistically? For instance, would it take years to reach Gold Rank, or is it able to be done within the year if you work hard enough? And what about higher ranks--do you need to work your entire life to reach something like Ace Rank or Ultra Rank?Team ACT was treated like a big deal, and they were only Gold Rank, apparently. So I wonder how long it would take to get up to higher ranks.>>53854348Thanks for reading it! I hope you liked it.I thought the Final Fantasy 9 overworld theme would be a good song for the Grass Continent overworld, so I used it there. I think this might work as another good overworld song:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FO9WXi9gxQgAnd this might work as a dungeon song, maybe for a forest dungeon:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUuvwY8wr68>>53856586I agree. I never played the originals, but I played the remake recently, and thought some songs sounded like they could work as PMD music.>>53854540They’d probably reuse stuff if possible, or get a Fire-type to burn it, or throw it in a midden/dump.>>53854838I once had the idea that Pokemon bodies work at 100% efficiency and convert everything into energy without producing waste (not sure if that makes any biological sense, but hey, lots of Pokemon don’t make sense to begin with). But then I saw some dex entries that talk about Pokemon poop, which ruined my idea.>>53855381>>53856440Pure unadulterated evil. Especially the Sneasel and Kris ones. But the Ronnie one is fine.>>53857690So the main character of GTI was specifically designed to have the personality and mindset of Fat Albert? That’s hilarious.>>53857670>>53858288top kekChespin’s Ice-type racism may be one of my favorite gags / character traits in the guild.>>53858229Thank you very much! That’s great to hear. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
>aggie.io chat the most active it has ever been>threads the slowest
>>53859107FUCK AM I MISSING AGGIE CHAT FUCK
>>53859104I mean, it doesn't take THAT long to get up ranks in the actual games, but I assume most adventure teams aren't doing dungeon crawls every single day like the player does. Also the games don't really take travel time to dungeons in account except for story moments.
>>53859107>>53859113Yeah Aggie has been super active in the chat these last few days, hard to keep up lol. Join in!
>>53859103I know, right? When I started writing that, I had a simple outline and didn't expect the thing to end up being so long or have drawings. That was the most autism I've ever channeled into something.It's not the longest story here, though.
>>53859104HEY HEY HEY, YOU GOT RUSED TODAY!
>>53859154Yes, I was informed of this in the chat, and I'm now embarrassed. I always get bamboozled too easily.>>53859107Probably for the best. A lot of talk that happens over there would be off-topic on /vp/, and would turn into spam that makes the threads hit bump limit too quick.>>53859143That single red eye in the shadow looks real cool here.
>have had a story idea in mind for the past month and a half>every time i'm just getting close to writing it, more ideas crop up that take priority>it happened again
>>53859172>Yes, I was informed of this in the chat, and I'm now embarrassedI got rused too lmao>>53859173just write four stories at the same time??? Easy.
>>53859104>Pure unadulterated evil. Especially the Sneasel and Kris ones. But the Ronnie one is fine.#8 is the worst one because of what Beast will do in response
>>53858860Thank you! I was a little worried I would go too far with Lapras' reply to Cyndaquil, but I think keeping it short avoided things feeling weird.
>>53859362kek, based art
>"C'mon, don't be shy, you can touch the- oh right you can't.... Whoops"
Cuddling with your partner at night for warmth during an expedition out in the wilderness!Holding your partner's hand through a scary dangerous dungeon even though secretly neither of you are scared!Telling your partner they mean the world to you and that meeting them was the highlight of your life after they fall asleep before you (except they are not actually asleep)!Finally getting the courage to kiss your partner only as you start fading away after saving the world...
>>53859435This is really nice, good stuff
>>53859362lmaooo Top tier piece of art >>53859435whoa, what is Clara cosplaying?
>>53859442Thanks! I appreciate it>>53859450 Yes, just like everybody else in the drawboard, This is their first appearance in one of them Also, I chose astral monk because it was really the only "class/build" that fitted them Do you guys have any other ideas or thoughts? I mean Clara doesn't really fit as a necromancer....
>>53859463Shaman? She already has her own spirit.
>>53859435>>53859463I don't think there's a class that fits better than that, if going with fantasy classes>>53859474good option too
>>53859474Hmmm, maybe a more brawly shaman? I'll keep that one, thanks :D
>>53859541 The filename is supposed to be "WOE"
>>53859437Why can't this be real, bros...>>53859362>>53859435Good art! The Cyndaquil one is funny, and Clara looks pretty cool.
What non-dungeon crawling mechanics would you like to see expanded on in a future PMD game? I've thought that maybe expanding on the sort of town-building gimmick Gates had would be neat, maybe they could make a game similar to Shiren 2 where you're trying to gather materials to build up a guild/town from scratch.
The hills are alive with the woop of Wooper.
>>53859692>tfw it's actually ditto
>>53859437THIS THIS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
>>53859437>alright fair enough>he has no hands>too sappy>that's just straight up gay
God morning! Did anyone have any pokemon related dreams?
>>53860843Yeah, but it's just nightmare related for me

>>53860984>what's dungeonitis?I was innocent once too
Hack jam 5 just got announced, starts in a week
updated cloverguild booru so that people without an account can see comments!
>>53861726 Thank you! I found it that wierd, glad it's fixed now
>>53859543oh welp. Joke ruined by spoiler :(>>53859653this>>53859758>>53859692that turned out great! POV : sneasel micro-dosing x-eye seeds>>53861733yeah, I really tried to make as much stuff accessible without an account but unfortunately anything that updates stuff on the website such as uploading art or adding tags requires one, otherwise the webapp crashes. reminder that you don't need an email to create one btw
>>53859758Gates to Infinity technically has this too although it's very limited
>>53859653I'd like more relationship building. Not romantic, moreso new ways to interact with your team or the Pokemon in the world.
>>53862235I want to fry that pokémon
>>53861651Nice. Hope that anon who reviews those is still around.
>>53862885I am, still haven't played the fourth one. I was thinking of playing some later or tomorrow.
>>53863076based hackreviewer anoni need more hacks to play.
There is a total of 51 -original- characters (without counting partners) in the clover guild, so I've done a little something It's very.... "simple", but I think it works You just have to write (in the image or as a reply) where your character would hang out on their daily basis, what would be their routine, etc. You can be as specific or broad as you want, the plan is to give other anons an idea as to where your character/s would be when not being the focus of a story, or where other characters can find yours. Of course, this is just for now, it's not permanent, this is just something to do while we wait If you guys want to add something, or feel like there's something missing, let me know
>>53863487 An example of mine
>>53863487Togetic usually hangs around the storage room mostly, while sometimes restocking the food storage/kitchen. Occasionally he'll sneak upstairs into guildmember's bedrooms to restock their bags without them knowing.
>>53863487Team Cozy's probably got a room on 2F. Save for eating and maybe chatting with others they wouldn't stay inside much when they could hang out in the garden they made.
>>53863487Macom would be in the Map room most of the time. I've always imagined his room to be next to the broom closet right next to his workspace.If not there he'd be at the outdoor/landing area or down in the main lobby watching mons come and go.
>>53863487Cool idea. Here's one I threw together (I may change it as I give it more thought, but this should be mostly accurate.)>>53859653Like others mentioned, I want more customization. Let us gather materials and design buildings, furniture, outfits, etc. Let us build the town up and do interior decorating in our home. I love that sort of stuff.>>53859692Disturbing, but also funny.>>53861726Nice. I couldn't see comments when browsing on my phone, so I was wondering if it was due to being on mobile, but I guess the issue was actually because I wasn't logged in on that device. Thanks for the update.>>53862573I wonder if there's any point to polishing orbs like that.>>53849866Nice story. Cool to see Chespin and Wooper getting so many items and powers lately. It was also interesting to see them get separated and watch how Chespin acts when he's missing Wooper. The wand scene was funny too. And I can't believe Wooper is a chiller now... actually, I feel like that part could've been expended on to add a little more drama, and make a slightly more powerful emotional climax to the story. But it's okay as is.>>53853458I liked this one too. Great dialogue as always. The interactions between Cyndaquil and Alakazam, as well as the Lapras scene at the end, were hilarious. Cool final fight too.I guess one critique is that the overall plot structure felt a bit weird to me, like it was two unrelated missions crammed into one. I also thought the narration of the combat sounded a bit stiff. But it was still an enjoyable read.
>>53864165Those little booker and sneasel icons are cute as hell lol
>>53864165>spoilerWhile i wasn't sure what else to do with the ice deal in that story, I DO have something planned with it for after Part 3 of their trip is over.
And another thing: I attempted to draw a scene from my ETF story.>>53864180Thanks. I remembered making them on an old drawboard, so I found the drawboard on the booru and copied them to use them here.
>>53864260It looks really good! I don't know how you've been able to improve so fast, but then I look back and it's actually been 3 months...
>>53864260Amazing, love the backgroundwe need to go smaller with that booker
>>53864260I'm still really impressed by this, it's really great. Watching this come together in the drawboard was fun. Good work king
>>53863496He's not at the guild most of the time, because he's not a member, but he still delivers stuff everyday at the guild. He can be found delivering supplies to Skiddo at the entrance of the ramp and delivering job notices and outlaw posters in the job board. Personal messages can be slipped under a Guild Member's door when Linoone knows their room, otherwise they're piled up at the lobby for someone else to distribute.Sneaks into Lliam's office when no one is looking to deliver intelOtherwise, after work the silly guy likes to go to the Guild to see if any friends want to hang out :D
>>53864339>>53863487oops wrong reply i suppose
good idea Lycanroc, I love reading other people's posts, It's fun to imagine what day-to-day is like for every character>>53863496She hangs often at the clinic?? Oh no..>>53863850I wonder if you placed KFC intentionally with his back against the wall in the Mess Hall. Maybe he always likes to be in an tactically advantageous positions.>8 to 12 hour dojo timeI'm not even surprised>>53864165>despite these different preferences they prefer to stay together whenever possible:)Also, I see Booker and KFC are neighbors!>>53864260It's a gorgeous scene! Amazing job with that one
>>53863719>Occasionally he'll sneak upstairs into guildmember's bedrooms to restock their bags without them knowing.and watch gay bois sleep>>53863873I don't remember which story, but an anonmon woke up early and the only members awake in the mess hall was team cozy. Would you say Chespin and Wooper are more morning mons than the others?>>53864080>If not there he'd be at the outdoor/landing area or down in the main lobby watching mons come and go.And having flashbacks...
>>53864394>Would you say Chespin and Wooper are more morning mons than the others?Only if they went to bed earlier than the others. Chespin likely wouldn't be much of a night owl due to the lack of sun. Although if his bed is feeling especially comfy that morning, he might go back for a midmorning nap.
>>53864394Or day dreaming
>>53864264>>53864284>>53864302>>53864375Thank you so much! I appreciate it.>we need to go smaller with that bookerSadly, there's a limit to how small I can go until it becomes incomprehensible.>>53864339Solid Linoone seems like such a lovable guy.Also, I like the secret agent-esque images you used for the two of them in the office.>delivering job notices and outlaw posters in the job boardY'know, I was wondering how the guild would get posts on the board. I was thinking clients could give them to the post office and Linoone would deliver them, like you said. Either that or clients would walk in and deliver the posts themselves.
>>53864375>She hangs often at the clinic?? Oh no..... It's what 12 hours of constant training does to people (or pokemons in this case) Don't worry though, she just uses the beds to rest for when she can't climb back to her room, maybe helping herself with a berry or 2 if she's specially tired. She's fine again after a couple hours of sleep or rest
>>53864165Glad you liked it!>to me, like it was two unrelated missions crammed into one.It pretty much was, I wanted the team to destroy something important during the mission but couldn't come up with something good in a desert dungeon so I shoehorned in another location> I also thought the narration of the combat sounded a bit stiff. Yeah, I always find action scenes hard to write. I'm trying to incorporate more of them to get better at stuff that isn't dialog. Hopefully it doesn't end up detracting from the stories
>>53864503>Solid Linoone seems like such a lovable guy.He can lack seriousness at times, but overall I think he ends up being a lovable fella too!>I was wondering how the guild would get posts on the boardYeah, I can imagine it could also be a mix of clients delivering them either directly to the guild or to the post office, whichever is closest for them.But I was also daydreaming the other day how clients would send their job requests to the federation first, who would then process the job and format it correctly as an official job request paper to our guild.>>53864504makes sense, she's probably hang out in the dojo with KFC often then. Being an aura pokemon, that could be interesting to him and Booker.>>53864510>spoilerlmao
>>53864510NTA but I remember a few times in the story (especially during the first fight) where it felt like you were overusing periods. Some of the sentences felt like they could've been stitched together with a comma or ellipsis, stopping it so often with a series of short sentences felt a bit unnatural and called more attention to the lack of detail.That being said, I really liked the story overall! Cofagrigus was a fun character.
I got bodied by fucking drowzee in my new playthrough, he sleep haxed me and my partner, so my totodile couldn't even abuse rage
>>53864612He deceived youshould've packed more reviver seeds
>>53864612vanilla or hack?Forewarn is a hell of an ability.
>>53864633You literally can't get them at this point in the game, you can't even grind, it's the 3rd dungeon of the game>>53864636Vanilla, how does forwarn work?
>>53864645Forewarn gives the ability holder a random chance of avoiding ANY attack. This includes guaranteed hitters like Feint Attack. It's just one reason why Smoochum is SS tier.
>>53864648That's not what happened to me, he snoozed my partner pikachu, I set up rage, he snoozed me, then he wailed on us
>>53863487I wrote up a nice long response to this, then tried to post it from hotel wifi and it got nuked. Rip. So here it is again, as best I remember several hours later.Contrary to popular belief, Gus doesn't sleep at the docks every night like a hobo. He DOES have a room in the Guildhall, and DOES sleep there most nights. In order to not feel useless, he usually takes easier low tier missions (preferably those involving minimal fighting) because he lacks a partner and doesn't really like going on missions alone, or helps out wherever needed. He'll occasionally tag along with another team on a higher tier/more difficult mission every now and then, during which time he'll be absent from Capim longer. He never misses a meal in the mess hall, and is usually there in the latter half of the meal hours. Tries to keep his evenings after dinner free. Probably spends a bit more time outside than inside. He's as much a creature of habit as a mon as he was as a human, and tends to keep pretty much the same schedule every day.But yes, when he has no missions to run, or wants to be alone and think for a bit, or if the weather is nice and the night sky is clear, or simply has nothing else better to do, you can find him relaxing at the docks. Other favorite locales include the library and map room (learning more about this world he finds himself in). I'll try to put this on the image when I have access to a computer again. And btw, this would be great to add to the rentry somewhere
>>53864785>Contrary to popular belief, Gus doesn't sleep at the docks every night like a hoboI like to think that canonically this is a real rumor at the guild
I just want to say that this intro https://rentry.org/cloverintro is so good
>>53864896i was half expecting this to be a post showing that it got vandalized.
After almost exactly a month, I've completed the main story of Project Orion, the Sky romhack, using Booker and Sneasel. Booker defeated the final boss with Aura Sphere, which is the most perfect ending I could've asked for. I'm sure KFC would be proud.It's been a long time since I played Sky, so it was nice to experience it again (albeit in a modified form), especially with my own characters added in as custom starters. The story and writing are... flawed in some ways, but still pretty good overall, and way better than the mainline games. And I've said it before, but I'll say it again: the wholesome bond between the hero and partner continues to be my favorite part of this series.the ending made me shed a couple tears btw, and i'm not ashamed to admit itAnyway, I'll start the postgame this weekend. I never actually finished the postgame when I played Sky the first time, so I'm looking forward to it.
>>53864934Any parts of the hack you especially like so far? Hopefully the post-grad dungeons don't spook you too hard, and that goes double for the endgame optional ones if you decide to check those out.
>>53864934I also finished this in a little under a month, the end was challenging, but i pulled through and beat dialga's ass. Overall the hack was enjoyable, thank you wooperdev-sama. Idk how much of the postgame i'll do, but i'll try to pull through.I'm a big boy and I didn't cry at the ending this time. I kinda wanted to tho
>>53864962i wholeheartedly encourage you check out Orion Tower. L1 dungeon that's a marathon, but one you can bring friends into as well as a few items. Gives it a more unique feel among L1 dungeons
>>53864967I might give it a try, but in total honesty, no offense but i don't think i see myself ever sitting down and actually finishing it. I don't think im cut out for level reset dungeons like that
>>53864959I don't know what exactly changed from the original, since my memories of the original's gameplay are hazy, and I haven't read all the documentation for Orion. But I think Orion added things like extra Kangaskhan statues in convenient spots, and the ability to push teammates, and the option to manually control your teammates, right? I like all those things.I'll give the postgame challenges a try, but I think I'll probably have lots of trouble with them. I don't think I'm a bad enough dude to beat those kinds of challenges. But at least I can savestate and savescum here if I need to, so that may make things easier.
>>53864934awesome ending>spoilercompletely understandable>>53864962>pic Broooooooo............... ;-; still hits hardcongrats to both of you! Bug bros RISE UP
>>53864998>But I think Orion added things like extra Kangaskhan statues in convenient spots, and the ability to push teammates, and the option to manually control your teammates, right? I like all those things.Yeah, the kanga rocks in the dojo/cafe are an addition i made, same with that other stuff.In vanilla your allies always stepped on traps right after you unless you took even more time to guide them away from them. Default Trap Avoider might be my personal favorite addition.
Writting question : Do we say paws or hands? What about feet?
>>53865138>Do we say paws or hands? What about feet?I use a mix. I think paws can be hands
>>53865138I just say hands for Chespin. feet are dumb in general but it sounds less dumb than saying paws in that case
>>53865138Paws, but it makes particular sense in my case to only use one. Otherwise, I would mix between the two or hyphenate when necessary.If your character is a Pancham, you can use pands.
>>53865138Just saying “paws” could lead to some confusion in cases where a bipedal Pokemon has paws on its arms and legs, and it’s unclear if you’re referring to the hands or feet. In those cases, it may be best to just say hands or feet for more clarity. But hyphenating them as “hand-paw” or “foot-paw” like the other anon said could also work, possibly.And you should never use “paw” for a species that doesn’t actually have proper paws.
>>53865138If it's a humon OR a bipedal native mon, I figure they'd say either hands or feet. :PFor native quadrupedals I always thought they'd say like "forepaws" or "hindpaws" if they needed to specify. "Hands" are probably a universal tool for 'my grabby limb' since lots of pokemon do have hands
Do native mons and humons write the same language? Or is there English and a Pokemon language?
>>53865687Some people differentiate, but i just ignore that sorta thing entirely.
>>53865687Of course the native mons speak and write English. After all they were a colony of the British Empire like all places.
>>53865846>Lapras used Perish Song!
All guild cucks retain their human head
Have you accepted that partner x partner is the purest form of love, anon?
>>53866773 Mine is Me x OHKO's if I'm being quite honest
>>53864594Thanks for the feedback! I'll work on sentence flow more in action scenes
>>53865138I've noticed dex entries always use paws instead of hands for Sneasel, but I usually say hands in my writing.>>53865687Pokemon canonically have their own written language different from English. You can see snippets of it here and there in the games.>>53865878Cursed image.Come to think of it, would PMD protagonists keep their original human voice? Or would it change along with their body?It would probably change, since your new body would have different vocal cords. Unless Pokemon-speech is actually some kind of magic telepathy thing, then your voice may not change.>>53866773Yes, of course.
>>53865687I think we established only humons know written english, but native mons and (most) humons know written pokémon language
>>53866773don't you mean protag x partner
I drew a little something to commemorate finishing the main story of Sky/Orion!Full disclosure, the Time Gear was traced from a 3D model because I couldn't figure out how to draw it freehand. Booker was drawn freehand though.
>>53867674It turned out pretty kino, good work king
>>53867634No.You are their partner and they are your partner. How can they be the most special thing in the world to you if you think you're more special than them?
>>53867899I mean, objectively speaking, in most games you were sent to the world of PMD as the chosen one destined to save the world, you are probably a little bit more special than them.
>>53867941True, objectively speaking, the hero is the most important person in the world.But from the hero's perspective, the partner is the most important person in the world.>>53867693>>53867979Thanks, guys!
>>53868087>>53867941Incorrect, factually speaking I is the most special thing in the world
>>53867239The anime screenshot you posted actually uses one of the scripts they made for the main anime, which I think has been used in main series games recently. PMD games mostly use a script based on Pokémon footprints.
I finally got a chance to read the new team cozy stories, they're pretty great! :) although wooper's parents are scary ASF O-O. That shit they did to woop's old bully has gotta be some of the most fucked up shit I've ever seen ._. Also chespin calling ice types chillers... lol :]
>>53868892Team Marsh aren't bad guys, unless you're a bad guy in which case out comes the doom seed buffet
>>53867899holy based I never thought of it that way
The new Ross story is fantastic! You're a very fluent writer :) Ross going beastmode with the stick was cool >:) I'm glad he made it out okay!
>>53869168thank you! Taunt is a hell of a drug
>>53843687>Where did the term "Pokemon" come from in this world?From their ability to shrink at will.>one of the Rescue Team flags has a Pokeball. Do they exist in that world?They should given that humans existed and artificial Pokémon like Mewtwo exist. Team Badges from games after Rescue Team are also shaped like Poké Balls.
>>53869602>at willWait, I should correct myself, I don't think Pokémon have ever been said to be able to do it whenever they want, just that they can. So it might just be under certain circumstances (like getting KO'd).
>>53869602>From their ability to shrink at will.why didn't grovyle do that when he was being executed?honestly that whole shrinking thing feels like a way for them to hand wave how the faint animations are without putting thought into other areas
>>53849241>>53869602Stop trying to drag the dumb shrinking debate into this general
>>53869623Because it's probably not at will, that's why I corrected myself. Regardless it's not just the animations, it's an element of the series that's always been staring at us all along and it's very stupid that most (none? lol) of us never paid attention to it until it came up in non-optional dialogue despite it literally being the name of the series. They've always been Pocket Monsters regardless of Poké Balls (Monster Balls in Japanese), they exist independently of the fact that they shrink.
>>53869654There's no debate, it's just a fact about the series, and it answers the question. Poké Balls don't need to exist for Pokémon to be called Pokémon because Poké Balls aren't their namesake nor the origin of their possible smaller size.
>>53869654>>53869623>>53869602I tried to stop it, anon. Why did you forsake me? We could've saved the future of autistic lore debates... together.
>>53869662I just ignore bits of "canon" i think are stupid anyways.
>>53869671The foundation of the series and the meaning of its name?
Maybe Pokémon IS stupid.
>>53868770Huh, I didn't know that. I think I got it from a twitter post, and I don't remember if they mentioned that detail.But I know pic related is from the games and uses an original design for the writing. Then again, it's just random scribbles instead of an actual conlang, which is understandable.
>>53867674Looks awesome! You made me realize that reastically Booker would never be able to carry the time gears, he would have to ask Sneasel or Grovyle to carry them>>53869855god I wish that were me .png>>53869925whatever happened to the custom conlang some anons were trying to design at some point?
>>53869964>Looks awesome! You made me realize that reastically Booker would never be able to carry the time gears, he would have to ask Sneasel or Grovyle to carry themThank you! Fortunately, I don't think there's any point in the game where the hero carries the gears. I think it's always Grovyle or the partner. Would be funny to see Booker stumbling around with a huge Time Gear hoisted over his head, though.>god I wish that were me .pngOn the left or on the right...?>whatever happened to the custom conlang some anons were trying to design at some point?I think that was KFC. I don't think he ever finished it, though. Making a fake language is a lot of work, after all.
>>53869964>whatever happened to the custom conlang some anons were trying to design at some point?Its on the back burner, its technically done, but I want to simplify since it's overcomplicated right now.
>>53870239>eevee partnerbitch had it coming. Maybe next time don't have Run Away.
>>53869654You'll be the first to be shrunk in the great shrinkening
>>53870380Joke's on you, that's my fetish
>>53870420Settle down anon.>>53870235This is helpful, but at the same time, im not smart enough to comprehend>>53869855Kek>>53868965This artist's work is always cute, i like these two. tho idk the artist's name unfortunately
