Super Smash Quest² - Story - Chapter 20: When Jigglypuff Attack!
Date: November 24th, 2008.
Trivia: Flaeyn is much like C-3P0; just imagine him with C-3P0's voice to see what I mean.
Metal Man (GM): The group basically went around fighting all the various corrupt or illicit people. The last person they fought (and killed) was Trevelyan, aka Trevor, who was some crazy man obsessed with escaping to another dimension. The Questers then recovered 20 golden statues, put together some weird oracle machine, and blindly followed its lead when it equated Metal Man with a barren, destroyed continent.
Metal Man (GM): They went there, discovering it to be populated by a single robotic psychopathic vampire monstrosity, who proceeded to shoot holes in the Questers and nearly kill them all. On the plus side, they also confirmed the island was linked to Metal Man. Continuing on this tilt, the people came back, wanting to kill Vylch.
Metal Man (GM): However they were confused and didn't know exactly what to do. Actually... Metal Man being their former leader, whom they wanted to find and/or rescue. Vylch being the robotic monster thing. So they sought the help of Jack. Jack, who was known for being corrupt and a cheater.
Metal Man (GM): Jack told them to basically go find and maybe even kidnap a genius from a land full of people who believed in capturing wild animals. Most obviously the pokemon world. So the Questers healed up and went on towards this land in Marley's old boat, planning to go find said 'genius.' On their way, Deloth decided to kick a hole in the boat. Aribar had to weld the hole shut, before the boat sunk.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth, feeling dumb, sat down. The group has now just landed at what could be called Pallet town, where Oak's Pokemon lab sits in the middle, and there's three houses nearby. The boat is parked in the channel (which is useful for that), and... Session. The Questers are all on the boat, ready to basically step off into yet another new, unexplored continent. Unlike that last one, however, there is no widespread devastation. Just houses.
Digifanatic: *I thought most of us did step off, but... he'll do so anyway.*
Aribar: "So far, so good. No evil people are attacking us." *The mage cautiously gets off of the boat.*
Julian: *Off to Pallet Town.* "So what, we wanna check Oak's lab first?"
Deloth: *steps off. Again.*
Digifanatic: "I'd say so."
Dragoshi: *Steps off the boat.* "Sounds like a good idea."
Flaeyn: "Oak's lab? So, that's the name of this place?"
Aribar: "You people seem to know more about this place than I do; you lead."
Panzer more or less follows everyone else.
Digifanatic: *starts heading to the lab.*
Julian: *To Oak's lab!* "When did Panzer get here?"
Deloth: *To the lab, to the lab, to the labbity-lab...*
Dragoshi: *To ze lab!*
Panzer: "Hell if I know. I was just on the boat."
Keikyoku skates in a random pattern to and fro, but in the general direction of the lab.
Deloth: *thinking.* "Don't look at the psycho, don't betray your fear, just keep walking..."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk into the lab.
Digifanatic: *turns around.* "Panzer?"
Metal Man (GM): Oak watches a crowd wander into his lab. One of his attendants hides behind the bookcase. Oak walks over.
Oak: "...Who are you people, and why are you here? You look... very strange... are you that 'posse' that man said he was going to send after me? There's nothing of value to thieves in here."
Digifanatic: .oO(Wow. I miss the days when Professor Oak knew us by heart.) "We weren't planning on stealing anything in here."
Dragoshi: "...what man?"
Julian: "Who we are ain't important. What is: We'd like your help. Or the help of someone you know... How much you know about fixin' stuff?"
Aribar turns to Panzer and is about to greet her when he hears Oak's voice. Then he remembers all of the Professor's terrible inventions and how he stole a trillion coin cube from the half-elf and shivers.
Julian: "Also: What man?"
Oak: "That man. With the spear. He came in and told me I was insane. Then he said he would send a group of people to kidnap me. And now there is a group of people. ...He didn't tell you that, did he?"
Keikyoku: "Hmmm I don't wanna kidnap you."
Panzer: "You're all looking at me like you've seen a ghost. Look at Oak for crying out loud!"
Julian: "We ain't gonna kidnap you, if that's what you're askin'."
Oak: *Looks at Panzer.* "Amazing... it's a rare pokemon!"
Digifanatic: "Relax, Professor, you're definitely not the insane one."
Digifanatic: .oO(Oh dear, I should have known that was coming.)
Oak: *Looks at Keikyoku.* "...Wait... there's two rare pokemon!"
Panzer lifts a brow at Oak. "I'm not a pokemon."
Digifanatic: *points to Kei.* "He isn't, either. Actually, none of us are."
Deloth: *bemusedly.* "So where would I fit in, then?"
Keikyoku glares at Oak. "I'm not a monster, nor do I fit in a pocket."
Metal Man (GM): Oak stares at Deloth.
Oak: "Team Rocket's standards have been slipping."
Deloth: "..." *facepalms and groans.*
Oak: "Okay, so you want me to repair a machine or something? I'm not... a very good repair man."
Julian: "Hey, hey!" *Snaps fingers in front of Oak's face.* "Focus! We got an airship that needs to be repaired? You know anythin' bout fixin' 'em, or someone who does? You know one?"
Dragoshi: *Just leans back and listens.*
Oak: "Well, my friend Bill made the system that turns matter into energy. He can do practically anything."
Keikyoku examines some stuff around the room.
Julian: "Coo', coo'...where's he at?"
Aribar: "Do you know if he'd be willing to help us?"
Metal Man (GM): Lots of difficult research books are everywhere.
Panzer: "You can't fix anything very well Oak. What machine needs to be fixed?"
Oak: "Bill's a nice guy. He'll help you, especially if it's an interesting machine. He's... at the Northernmost part of the continent. But the way there is filled with treacherous pokemon battles."
Keikyoku looks for something shiny and or moving that can hold his attention.
Julian: "I think we can handle it."
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku finds this is the most boring lab he's ever been to in his life.
Aribar: "We need to fix up a ship's weaponry so that we can take out a robotic foe, Panzer."
Panzer: "Sounds easy."
Keikyoku skates around, bored.
Oak: "You have to go up Route 2 to Viridian city, then walk up through Viridian Forest, then by Brock's Gym, through Mount Moon, and then up a bridge controlled by Team Rocket, across a wasteland filled with pokemon trainers."
Julian: *shrugs.* "Sounds easy enough. What town's he in?"
Oak: "It could take an hour or two, even if you defeated everything you encountered. He's North of Cerulean town."
Digifanatic: "I think we can envy a bunch of trainers."
Oak: "That bridge, goes up to the weird place he lives. He likes the area."
Panzer: "Oak, do Pokemon blow up when you shoot them?"
Oak: "No. They faint. It's like magic."
Julian: "Not unless it's explosive rounds, I'd guess."
Oak: "If they're tough, they'll attack you back instead."
Julian: "Or one'a those round ones."
Oak: "Oh... well. Electrodes."
Julian: "Yeah, them."
Oak: "They... explode... without dying. It's quite impressive, actually."
Deloth: "...How is that possible?"
Panzer: "Nonsensical bullshit."
Julian: "Pokemagic, I don't give a shit. Anyone else they got something they wanna ask?"
Oak: "I've been trying to find out questions like that."
Keikyoku: "I wish I could explode and not die."
Digifanatic: "I've wondered that myself. Panzer's answer is probably the best we can have without going into long explanations."
Oak: "Well... if you ARE a pokemon, as I think you are, you could learn Explode from a technical machine."
Metal Man (GM): He takes out a CD.
Panzer: "Something like that."
Keikyoku: "Can I have a pokemon for a pet?"
Oak: "Then you, too, can explode without dying."
Julian: "...She IS a robot... reploid, whatever."
Oak: "Well, you have to catch your own. I gave all of mine away."
Julian: "Panz, you got a CD drive on ya somewhere?"
Deloth: "Got any spare Pokeballs, then?"
Dragoshi: "...Yea. Got any of those?"
Panzer: "I don't have a CD drive..."
Oak: "This is... a blank disc... and I don't carry pokeballs."
Flaeyn: "Couldn't we carry CDs?"
Panzer: "I take chips, and the like. CDs. Those were outdated centuries ago."
Oak: "...And I won't ask why you all seem to be from different... time periods..."
Julian: "Just askin', just askin'...Viridian's got a store, ain't it?"
Aribar just stands aside and watches the conversation take place. "It would probably be for the best."
Oak: "...Or almost as different from one another as pokemon are from one another..."
Keikyoku examines the explode CD. "How do I learn it?"
Julian: "Long story. One I'm sure you don't wanna hear."
Oak: "...Or heavily armed people who ride on the high seas..."
Panzer: "We're pirates. Arr?"
Oak: "Well, for Pokemon, you sort of give them the CD and they learn it. Somehow. This is a blank CD, so it won't do you any good."
Dragoshi: "...Maybe they eat the CD." >_>
Panzer: "They are a delicacy. Like your caviar."
Oak: "This world is... a very interesting one. Maybe you will find something useful."
Julian: "Anyone else got anything they wanna ask? Otherwise we oughta get a move on."
Keikyoku: "Well do you have explode, it sounds like fun."
Oak: "Also, I do have one thing." He opens a drawer. There's... row upon row of pokedexes.
Julian: "...You want us to use 'em?"
Digifanatic: .oO(Kinda like old times.)
Deloth: "...hello, old friends."
Oak: "If you find all 300+ Pokemon in the world... I will give you this lab."
Julian: "Sounds like a bargain." *Yoink.*
Deloth: *Snatch.* "Thanks."
Oak: "They identify pokemon... and each Pokemon you encounter will be recorded."
Keikyoku slowly approaches the drawer.
Julian: .oO(Times get tough I can just pawn it.) "Jus' point an' click?"
Keikyoku: "Shiny." *takes one and starts pressing buttons.*
Metal Man (GM): These are particularly poor smash dex wannabes.
Flaeyn: "Just how long does that take?" He only takes it when Oak actually hands it to him, instead of just snatching it.
Digifanatic: *takes one.*
Dragoshi: *Dex get!*
Metal Man (GM): They possess roughly Old school Gameboy capabilities.
Julian: *Wonders if it has Tetris.*
Metal Man (GM): They're point and click, and can scan stuff. And could probably play Tetris if programmed to do so first.
Keikyoku scans Oak.
Aribar takes a Pokedex. The Quester reminisces about the old days and Smash Dexes.
Flaeyn: "Fond memories, hm?" He says, looking at Aribar.
Aribar: "Aye; we used to have devices that were like these." .oO(Made by Oak too.)
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Julian: "Didn't work half the time. If that's all..."
Oak: "They don't work on non-Pokemon. Or Pokemon wearing armor that obscures their identity."
Keikyoku scans himself.
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Panzer takes a Pokedex. She moves it near her core. "I wonder if my core will really interfere with this or not."
Metal Man (GM): The Pokedex is simple enough to not notice the interference or be bothered by it. If it got much more complex it might be a problem, though.
Keikyoku scans Panzer.
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Panzer puts it away, vowing to get rid of it like the last one.
Flaeyn scans Keikyoku. "Error, an idiot."
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Oak: "You guys like when it says that, don't you?"
Keikyoku kicks Flaeyn.
Digifanatic: "I guess they do."
Panzer: "Stop scanning people you moron. If I hear that sentence one more time, I'll shove Greenbird up your ass and fire."
Julian: "Well, Professor, thanks for the help an' the free stuff." *Extends hand to shake.*
Oak: "Of course." He shakes Julian's hand. "Oh... one thing. Please tell that... thug... that pokemon aren't useless... he is."
Flaeyn is kicked, and takes it like a man. he doesn't budge again. "Wanna try that again?"
Julian: "We already know that. See ya around." *Makes to exit the lab before the group breaks something.*
Oak: "After all, he needs Bill's help. And Bill learned from Pokemon. See you."
Panzer: "Thug? Daring for an old geezer."
Oak: "Well, he used all kinds of bad language and threatened to stab me. It reminded me of my son in some ways."
Deloth just heads out before books start getting thrown.
Panzer: "Sounds like the sort of crowd I like."
Julian: "We'll keep an eye out for him." *Exeunt!*
Keikyoku pushes some buttons on the pokedex, trying to see all that it can do.
Digifanatic: *out of there.*
Oak: "Well, if you stay with them, I guess you'll find him."
Deloth: "Julian, is it just me, or is the average Quester IQ going down alarmingly fast?"
Dragoshi: *Exit, stage... whatever!*
Metal Man (GM): Pokedex beeps...
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon. Error: Not a pokemon. Error: Not a pokemon."
Panzer: "Say Oak, you don't remember fixing... Nevermind."
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Julian: "Where the fuck did we get this joker, again?" *Thumbs towards Keikyoku.*
Panzer: "Can we get rid of him?"
Deloth: "Dunno. I almost drowned him once, but Jack nearly blew my head off."
Oak: "Huh? I can't hear you over that guy pressing buttons."
Keikyoku puts it away, bored with it.
Panzer waves a hand at Oak. "Nevermind."
Oak: "Goodbye, then... good luck."
Panzer wanders outside.
Metal Man (GM): He waves, and The Questers are free to explore Pallet town. Or go up through the route to Viridian. It has tall grass all over it. Does anyone ever maintain paths here???
Julian: "Anyone got anything they wanna see, or can we head out?"
Deloth heads up Route 1, chopping through grass with his swords if possible.
Metal Man (GM): There's a fence around it, which is weirder. Why would they force people to walk through grass?
Flaeyn: "I kind of want to see the interiors of these houses."
Panzer: "Let's just go." She starts to calibrate her sights, they were a bit off zero.
Digifanatic: *muttering to Julian.* "About Kei--Angel Island, I think... and if you could stay within an arms length away from him, it might shut him up. A little bit of threatening could help as well."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth can cut the grass easily.
Julian: "I don't think they gonna just let us in."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth cuts and cuts the way up... then there is a Rat. A giant rat. It goes to bite Deloth.
Deloth: *Slice, slice, slice.*
Metal Man (GM): Wow. That's pathetic. It misses terribly.
Deloth casually steps back and Dexes it.
Julian: "...The fuck is that thing?"
Deloth: "There you go."
Pokedex: "It is a rat Pokemon. Level 2. It attacks with its huge teeth. Rattata are extremely weak in this area."
Panzer blinks. "Target practice?"
Digifanatic: "I always prefer the short grass whenever possible."
Pokedex: "Perhaps due to overuse of pesticides."
Digifanatic: *to Panz.* "Not sure if it's even worth it."
Pokedex: "End of entry."
Metal Man (GM): It flies over the horizon.
Metal Man (GM): Rattata fainted!
Deloth: "...May I say something here?"
Panzer: "Probably not. Rounds for this thing aren't cheap. Digi, you seen my tank recently?"
Deloth: "...GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! GOAL GOAL GOAL GOAL!"
Flaeyn: "T-Tank? You're kidding me... you own a tank?"
Metal Man (GM): The route is so short that there aren't likely to be any more of them in their way.
Julian: "Where you get a tank?"
Deloth then just keeps slicing down grass as he walks.
Metal Man (GM): However... there's a man standing in the path along the way. He's not in the way, though.
Panzer: "I brought it with me. It's a nice tank. Fuck off."
Digifanatic: "Think she used to have one a long while back."
???: "It is a nice day today. I like to walk down this path."
Dragoshi: "I see."
Julian: *Checks if he is wearing shorts.*
Panzer walks past him.
Metal Man (GM): No, he's wearing normal pants.
Keikyoku shakes ???'s hand.
Deloth just nods to the guy and keeps walking.
Julian: *Keeps walking. Pallet Town is tres boring* :(
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku attempts to touch ???. He hits an invincible force field.
???: "It is a nice day today. I like to walk down this path."
Julian: "Good for you."
Metal Man (GM): There is something seriously weird about this place.
Panzer: "Fucking robot. Leave it alone. Let's just go. Robots are too outdated to play with."
Aribar slooowly walks onward.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone walks into Viridian City.
Deloth: "...Well, that was uncanny."
Digifanatic: *just keeps going--short grass preferred.*
Dragoshi: *Sloooowly follows behind.*
Metal Man (GM): There is: A Pokemart, a Pokecenter, a Gym, and the sign. 'Welcome to Viridian City' Below it, is a note.
Julian: *Read that note!*
Metal Man (GM): 'Red Drools, Gary Rules!'
Julian: *Awesome! Julian heads for the Pokemart as well. Possibly to shoplift.*
Metal Man (GM): Deloth and Julian go to the pokemart. It's like a pet store.
Digifanatic: *Shopping place plz.*
Keikyoku crosses out Red and Gary and writes Gary and Keikyoku.
Metal Man (GM): Everything in there is mostly pet food, antidotes that only work on pets...
Dragoshi: *To the pokemart!*
Metal Man (GM): Why, if it was used on a non-pokemon, strange things would happen.
Deloth: *Pokeballs, Pokeballs... he looks for the catch capsules.*
Keikyoku examines the pet stuffs.
Panzer shakes her head. "Fucking retard." To Keikyoku.
Metal Man (GM): They sell Pokeballs. 50 pokedollars per pokeball. What the heck are pokedollars???
Julian: *Wonders what the conversion rate is here.*
Flaeyn: "Be nice." He says back to Panzer. He kinda sounds like a parent that way. He would then look for potions.
Dragoshi: *Wonders the same.*
Metal Man (GM): Someone will have to ask the person at the register. There are potions. They have warning labels. 'DO NOT USE ON HUMANS', 'MAY CAUSE EARLY BALDNESS.'
Panzer looks at Flaeyn. "Look here kid, I've got a good few centuries on you. Shut it."
Julian: *To the register!* "Yo, lady, what kinda exchange rate y'all got out here? For, like, rings an' shit."
Deloth heads up to the register and shows the guy a coin. "How many Pokedollars would one of these be worth?"
Keikyoku walks up to the counter and shows the cashier a coin "How much is this worth?"
Julian: "Or coins, whatever."
Shopkeeper: "Gold fragments? How strange. Uhhh... "
Deloth idly wonders if he can mug Keikyoku in an alleyway somewhere and steal his money...
Metal Man (GM): The Shopkeeper takes out a really old book on conversion rates.
Panzer looks at the shopkeeper. "Can you capture anything else with those balls?"
Flaeyn walks up. "They're super Gold Nuggets."
Flaeyn: "They should convert 2000 Pokedollars a piece."
Shopkeeper: "No. It has a restraining mechanism for that."
Julian: "Let's just BUY Oak's lab."
Panzer: "Can we go now?"
Shopkeeper: "2000? No... that's 2 pokedollars per tiny gold fragment. So... 2:1. In your favor."
Julian: *Puts his hands up and walks towards the exit.* "I'm out."
Panzer goes to the Gym.
Keikyoku skates away.
Flaeyn sighs. "So far, there's nothing to be had here." He walks out as well.
Deloth: "Not worth it." *heads out... well, that was a waste of time.*
Digifanatic: "Thanks." *leaves.*
Metal Man (GM): Julian leads the group into the gym. There are three pokemon trainers, then a guy with a freaky hairdo and black-purplish clothes.
Dragoshi: *Just follows behind.*
Gary: "Hey hey! What is a crowd of LOSERS doing in GARY'S GYM? MY GYM! Without pokemon???"
Julian: "What, you wanna gimme yours?"
Panzer: "You don't need little rodents when you have a .50 Caliber Sniper Rifle."
Flaeyn sighs. "I'm in a team with brutes. How troublesome."
Keikyoku: "I could be a pokemon."
Gary: "Woah woah woah. You don't pick a fight with me. I pick a fight with you. And... I don't feel like getting up to defeat you today."
Deloth: "You get used to it, Flaeyn."
Panzer chuckles. "Or you're afraid. Damn punk kids."
Gary: "You're not Pokemon trainers. So. What do you want? If you're here to reinstate Giovanni, I'll have Nidoking crush you into small pieces."
Julian: "Who's he?"
Dragoshi: "Reinstate who?"
Panzer: "I will sit on you and crush you. I weigh 3 tons."
Flaeyn: "Actually we came here just for that..."
Gary: "The former gym leader. A criminal who did genetic experiments. He likes to crush things with his hands."
Keikyoku skates around idly.
Gary: "Don't threaten me... I have a pokemon which weighs more than that! And it... will... sit on you... yeah. Anyway."
Keikyoku looks for a pokemon to scan.
Metal Man (GM): No pokemon have been sent out yet.
Panzer: "Really? Let's see it. I'm sure I can vaporize it."
Julian: "Look, if this chump ain't gonna fight us or give us nothin', I think we oughta be movin 'on."
Panzer: "Or find my tank and run it over."
Julian: "Got better things to do with my time."
Deloth heads out and makes his way to Route 2.
Aribar follows Deloth.
Julian: *Exit.* "Nice talkin' with ya, chump."
Gary: "Vaporize? You can't vaporize pokemon."
Panzer: "I'll find a way."
Gary: "Well, I would, but I'd need a reward if I won."
Panzer: "You're not one of those things. Maybe I'll just vaporize you."
Dragoshi: *Just... Follows behind Julian.*
Julian: *Route 2! Maybe they are more rats to punt.*
Flaeyn: "How about, we offer you... Keikyoku?"
Gary: "Your friends are leaving, anyway, and since you're not a pokemon, I could just send all six of my pokemon out, and laugh as you are crushed."
Panzer: "They're not my friends. All my friends died, or are stuck in another area."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer is slowly left behind, arguing with Gary.
Flaeyn's frown only deepens when he hears that.
Keikyoku: "Hey I like your sign by the way." *leaves.*
Gary: "Uh... cool." He shrugs at Panzer. "You're not worth my time. You don't have any money for me to take, and your weapon is useless to me. And my pokemon might not even get experience from fighting you, since you're not a pokemon."
Panzer levels it and shoots above his head, making a nice big hole in the wall, or whatever the bullet hits.
Deloth takes out his Dex again as he walks. You never know, might find another entry--aw, hell, gunshots.
Panzer: "Have fun with your little rats and things, kid." She turns and leaves.
Deloth: "Guys, we should probably book it right about now."
Gary: "Hmph." He is... unimpressed.
Metal Man (GM): The other Questers go to leave Viridian city...
Flaeyn: "Hm." He leaves after Panzer, before making a mock-whistle at that gunshot.
Old Man: "Hey! Do you guys know how to catch pokemon?"
Digifanatic: "Thanks but no thanks."
Julian: *JESUS AND MARY!* "Ah! Where'd the fuck you come frome?!"
Panzer reshoulders her rifle and catches up to the group.
Old Man: "..."
Deloth: "Although if you have any Pokeballs to spare, we need a couple."
Dragoshi: *Nods in agreement with Del.*
Old Man: "Okay, I'll show you how to catch Pokemon." Reality shifts, and suddenly a Weedle appears out of thin air.
Julian: *what teh f.*
Old Man: "You first weaken the pokemon."
Dragoshi: *lol wut.*
Dex: "ERROR UNKNOWN OBJECT 'm!#%(!)!%#."
Metal Man (GM): He begins punching the Weedle.
Keikyoku: "Do you know how to make the pokedex do things other than just scanning?"
Panzer: "These things aren't all that great. Bugs and rats? What's next? Pinecones?"
Julian: "...Good question. How you put Tetris on this thing?"
Old Man: "Then you catch them!"
Metal Man (GM): He hurls a pokeball at it. It disappears.
Keikyoku: "I think that pokemon is an illusion."
Deloth whacks the Dex a few times.
Old Man: "And there you go."
Flaeyn: "Interesting. Mind showing us again?"
Metal Man (GM): Having been told that, the Questers would feel like the Old Man has partially damaged their grip on reality.
Deloth shoots a deathgaze at Flaeyn.
Panzer: "Keikyoku, can I shoot you? Deloth can tell you how it feels to have your head blown off."
Old Man: "Well, yes, you first..."
Metal Man (GM): *SPLORCH.*
Keikyoku: "No thanx I think I'm good..."
Metal Man (GM): He vanishes, leaving a hole in reality behind where he was standing.
Digifanatic: .oO(Nah, he's not good.)
Metal Man (GM): What... the...???
Julian: "Fuck this." *Onwards!*
Digifanatic: "Let's just move on."
Flaeyn: "I always knew there was something odd about this continent."
Keikyoku looks into the hole.
Deloth: "...I think the Matrix just crashed."
Digifanatic: *just keeps going.*
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku see an island on the other side.
Aribar hastens after Julian.
Panzer is used to weird things like this. Wanders down the path.
Digifanatic: "As for the Tetris thing, I'll look into that when we have some free time."
Deloth reels back and kicks Keikyoku into the hole.
Metal Man (GM): Oddly, Deloth's foot moves through him when he does that. Reality seems to lose its power near the hole.
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku would have to enter it himself.
Dragoshi: *Just continues following behind the group...*
Deloth looks at the sky. "I hate you too."
Keikyoku follows the group.
Deloth then sighs and catches up with the others.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth hears a bizarre, glitched pokemon screech from the hole.
Flaeyn restrains Keikyoku before he has ideas to, and then goes with the group. "Don't you dare."
Deloth: "..." *turns around and heads back to the hole.* "The HELL?"
Julian: "Keep fuckin' walkin'! You want that thing after US?"
Metal Man (GM): Inside the hole, there are skeletons, upside-down pokemon trainers, and bizarre boxes of static with eyes.
Panzer does the same thing, goes into the hole. "Maybe Hunter Base is in here."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer enters the hole.
Deloth turns around and starts walking. Very quickly.
Panzer gets turned inside out or something. XD
Metal Man (GM): Suddenly, Panzer obtains millions of pokeballs! Panzer is attacked by SAOF!#T)GY@()GH%)QBJNQ@Y)H%QNJH@%.
Panzer gets buried. x.x
Digifanatic: "Good idea." *RUNS, DUDE!*
Metal Man (GM): BLOARGHAGRHAGR WOW BEEEEEEEEEPEEEEEEP.
Dragoshi: *Blinks because what the christ.*
Panzer: "What the fucking hell?"
Metal Man (GM): QWRB!RLBRL#~RB#.
Deloth: *FULL THROTTLE.*
Metal Man (GM): *SPLORT.*
Dragoshi: *Run away, run away!*
Metal Man (GM): The hole vanishes and hurls Panzer back out. And a huge pile of broken pokeballs.
Panzer blinks. Gets up and straightens her armor. Looks for a working ball.
Flaeyn: "How about we don't act like dumbshits, hm?"
Metal Man (GM): They vanish as Panzer touches them, but one pokeball half is actually real. It seems to have a small piece of that... glitchiness... The others have practically run into the forest by now. There, they see it's a fairly routine walk. There's a pokemon trainer in the way, though. He's about to stare at them. Really hard.
Panzer takes it, pockets it and whistles as she walks along. "Awesome."
Metal Man (GM): It's unnerving.
Panzer is walking along and playing with the ball half glitch cheese.
Julian: *Fuck that guy.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers go to walk past him.
Deloth: "...Quit staring. What, you've never seen a... uh... whatever I am?"
Metal Man (GM): An invisible wall of air blocks their path. Then he walks up to them.
???: "I like bugs!"
Metal Man (GM): He's in optimum punching distance.
Julian: *Rubs his head as he backs away.* "Man, what the... What?"
Metal Man (GM): He starts to robotically take out a pokeball.
Panzer catches up. She uses the dex to scan the glitchy ball.
Flaeyn: "Oh really? What kind of bugs do you like?" He says, obviously in spite of the others.
Deloth walks over and aims a kick at the kid's stomach, because he's getting grouchy of this.
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Digifanatic: "Okay, seriously, this continent shouldn't be this weird..."
Panzer throws the dex into the woods. "Worthless."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth fails. The pokemon trainer hurls a pokeball down! Deloth's foot is in the way! *BONK* It hit. Deloth falls over comically!
Flaeyn tries to smash the Pokeball before it releases a Pokemon!
Metal Man (GM): Flaeyn hits Deloth while he's down!
Flaeyn: *Yay!* :D
Panzer shoots the bug guy.
Deloth: "Alright, I'm getting tired of--OOF!"
Metal Man (GM): A weird caterpillar appears!
Keikyoku dives for the ball.
Dragoshi: "..." *Blinks.*
Flaeyn: "Oh oops. My fist slipped. Or something." *cough.*
Metal Man (GM): The caterpillar is punted!
Dragoshi: *Watches as Julian sends another Pokemon somewhere over the rainbow.*
Metal Man (GM): The bug trainer is shot. He falls down and vanishes.
Deloth: "You son of a--"
Panzer keeps walking.
Dragoshi: "... Well, that was ridiculous."
Julian: "Yeah." *Walk!*
Panzer: "Interrupted my glitchy ball game."
Deloth aims a stab with his laser sword at Flaeyn.
Metal Man (GM): He drops 50 pokedollars!
Keikyoku skates on down the trail.
Dragoshi: *Decides to search for any random stuff that people may or may not have dropped while wandering aimlessly through the forest.* >_>
Metal Man (GM): Flaeyn and Deloth imitate dwarves in dwarf fortress, when they have a tantrum!
Flaeyn wouldn't even dodge that one, taking the damage. "Let's watch you kill your own teammate. You're rather a nice fellow."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi finds... a hive. Hmmm... It's filled with honey... *BUZZZZZZZ.*
Julian: *oh shi-*
Metal Man (GM): Giant, man-sized bees with drills fly over.
Deloth: "..." *facepalm.*
Panzer just keeps walking >>;
Deloth: "DAMMIT, Drag..."
Julian: "BEEEEEEEES!" *Run!*
Flaeyn: "Thought so." He said to Deloth.
Keikyoku skates away.
Digifanatic: "Ack, Beedrills..." *runs off.*
Metal Man (GM): They attack everyone with a drill attack... apparently they just want to knock everyone away from the hive!
Deloth makes a run for it, away from the scary half-power tool bees.
Metal Man (GM): Nobody's dodged so far.
Panzer gets shredded. XD
Digifanatic: *to Panzer.* "If Gibby's button relapse you missed wasn't bad enough."
Panzer chucks the glitchy ball at the bees.
Metal Man (GM): It flies into a bee and explodes violently. Wow. Panzer actually did make a pokemon disappear.
Panzer: "Haha. Awesome. I win the grand prize."
Flaeyn: "Nice shot..."
Digifanatic: "What a bunch of LIARS."
Metal Man (GM): The beedrill fly away, either confident they've harmed the Questers enough, or afraid of exploding.
Deloth: *while running.* "Could someone PLEASE explain to me how we manage to wind up in a stupid situation like this EVERY day?"
Panzer: "Anyone see a temporal hole in reality, tell me."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers arrive at Brock's town. It has a flower bed. And a museum.
Deloth: "It's like some kind of nutcase does all this just to see us suffer."
Metal Man (GM): And a gym.
Digifanatic: "Cause curiosity has killed every Quester except Julian and myself."
Metal Man (GM): And a pokemon center... and a pokemart.
Panzer: "Forgot me Digi. I've been around since the start."
Dragoshi: *Just checks to see if there's anything of interest in the flowerbed.*
Deloth: "...By the way, Panz, are you going to shoot me in the skull again?"
Panzer goes to the pokemart.
Digifanatic: "Well, you've had intermittent periods."
Keikyoku smells the flowers.
Panzer: "If you piss me off, Deloth."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer walks inside the pokemart.
Digifanatic: *tries this Pokemart out for a change.*
Metal Man (GM): A pink pokemon is in the corner.
Panzer talks to it. Angrily.
Keikyoku scans the pokemon.
Panzer: "I can make you vanish off the earth."
Deloth follows Panzer in, because... well... not much else to do.
Panzer walks off suddenly. Goes to the clerk. "Do you have a comm link frequency listed for Professor Oak?"
Deloth scans the pink fluffy thing in the corner.
Metal Man (GM): It begins singing. Panzer walks away before it is too late.
Julian: *Checks out the museum, figuring the Pokemart to be a waste of time.*
Pokedex: "Jigglypuff. It sings so strangely that anyone who listens to it falls to sleep."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth falls asleep after looking at it too closely.
Deloth: "Alright, Dex, make with the informaghth--" *THUMP.*
Shopkeep: "...Don't talk to that thing. Nobody can make it go away. Unless you have a projectile."
Panzer: "I can."
Panzer: "I have a sniper rifle."
Shopkeep: "Please make it go away. It haunts my nightmares."
Metal Man (GM): The Jigglypuff walks over to Deloth and starts stealing his money.
Panzer turns and fires at Jigglypuff.
Metal Man (GM): It is hit. Oddly, it isn't harmed like a normal person.
Metal Man (GM): It takes damage. It becomes angry! It leaps up and attacks Panzer!
Panzer: "Wish I had another glitchy ball."
Metal Man (GM): It destroys the shelf behind Panzer!
Shopkeep: "Did I mention it goes into fighting tournaments?"
Panzer blinks. Uses her famed One shot One kill.
Julian: *Learning fun at the museum!*
Panzer probably shot the clerk >>;
Metal Man (GM): The Jigglypuff dodges. It goes to punch Panzer in the face. Meanwhile, Julian goes to the museum.
Curator: "That will be 20 pokedollars."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer dodges. Panzer's turn again. As Panzer and the Jigglypuff duke it out in the store.
Panzer shoots it again. >>; In the eye.
Julian: *Pays with some of the pokedollars he took off that Bug Catcher Panzer shot.*
Flaeyn: "Excuse me ma'am. Do you have any knock out sprays?" He asks.
Panzer shot the clerk for sure XD.
Shopkeeper: "If I did, it wouldn't be in the--"
Metal Man (GM): *PING.*
Shopkeeper: "Store..." That one nearly hit the shopkeeper.
Panzer: "Dammit! Stop moving you little hellion!"
Metal Man (GM): The Jigglypuff goes to roll into Panzer like an airborne missile!
Deloth continues sleeping calmly in the middle of the floor.
Digifanatic: *backs into a corner and tries to hold back his laughter.*
Metal Man (GM): Panzer dodges!
Julian: *Enters, and, I dunno. Learns stuff. Maybe he gets an Intelligence point.* (Editor's note: Ha ha ha, fat chance)
Panzer tries to rip it apart with her clawed hands.
Digifanatic: *hmm... runs in and tries to drag Deloth away from the non-Spartan madness.*
Panzer fell over. XD
Dragoshi: *Is... just watching the battle between Panz and the 'puff from outside the mart. If possible.*
Metal Man (GM): Panzer takes damage, as she knocks a shelf on herself.
Panzer curses loudly in German.
Metal Man (GM): The Jigglypuff then goes to kick Panzer.
Metal Man (GM): Jigglypuff deals damage to Panzer.
Julian: *Decides to take the audio tour.*
Flaeyn sighs. He cracks his knuckles, and tries to snatch Jigglypuff up in a dive to somewhat save it.
Panzer takes the shelf and swings at the critter.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth is actually quite safe, while Julian hears the history of Kanto. Jigglypuff dodges the shelf, picks up a heavy item and hurls it at Panzer.
Deloth: *mumbling.* "No... just take that stupid jelly away..."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer gets hit in the head.
Panzer grumbles and goes to kick it out the door, window, roof. Whatever.
Metal Man (GM): Jigglypuff dodges. Panzer kicks out a window.
Panzer: "STAND STILL YOU LITTLE BASTARD!"
Shopkeeper: "I'm going to move to a far away island at this rate."
Deloth: "Nnngh... did I hear the sound of glass breaking?"
Dragoshi: *Just readies his sword, and waits for a good opportunity...*
Digifanatic: *muttering to Deloth.* "I think you did."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer misses. Man, that small thing is fast.
Deloth sits up groggily... and notices at the Pokemart is now utterly trashed.
Metal Man (GM): The Jigglypuff tries to sing at Panzer.
Metal Man (GM): It sounds like the SSB screech effect. It wakes Deloth up. And breaks some windows.
Panzer covers her ears. "Ow."
Flaeyn: "If I don't succeed, you'll probably..." He stares at Panzer. "Sit on it." He tries to somewhat save it again.
Metal Man (GM): And Jigglypuff takes damage.
Deloth: *sits up suddenly.* "THE BASE IS UNDER ATTACK! YOU, GET TO THE TURRETS! YOU... you... oh."
Panzer does her loudest, highest-pitched cat roar. Thing. In its ear?
Metal Man (GM): Panzer used ROAR!
Dragoshi: *Blinks, pretty much watching the chaos ensue.*
Metal Man (GM): Panzer makes a squeaky noise.
Panzer has a hairball. "Dammit. I should stop smoking."
Deloth wonders if the Dex has a camera feature...
Flaeyn NOW tries it.
Digifanatic: "Deloth, I'mma just get outta here right now."
Metal Man (GM): Jigglypuff is caught! Quick! Run outside the store! ...Jigglypuff.
Panzer: "Hold it still! I want to shoot it!"
Metal Man (GM): The Jigglypuff sounds like it's about to use a move not found on normal Jigglypuffs... SELFDESTRUCT.
Flaeyn moves around quite a bit. "You're going to do so much damage, just stop it..!" He then pauses. "..."
Panzer jumps behind a shelf. >>;
Digifanatic: *Yeah, he's out of there.*
Flaeyn throws Jigglypuff into the air, and then just sort of tries to stumble out of there.
Metal Man (GM): Panzer leaps out of the way, slow-mo action style.
Dragoshi: *Good thing he's watching this from afar.*
Deloth gets to his feet and makes tracks!
Metal Man (GM): Flaeyn runs away.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth runs into Jigglypuff as she explodes.
Julian: *Julian did not know that Kanto's official nut was the pecan.*
Metal Man (GM): Digi runs away.
Metal Man (GM): *BOOOOOM.*
Panzer envies Deloths's skillz. XD
Dragoshi: *Just... slowly puts his sword away and claps.*
Metal Man (GM): Tons of damage to Deloth, and the Jigglypuff... flew straight up and into the air, far away. The store owner raises a finger.
Shopkeep: "Good... job..."
Metal Man (GM): *Thunmp.* Well... the Jigglypuff IS gone...
Panzer gets up and dusts herself off. "I win. Now. ...Fuck." She hops behind the counter and shakes him.
Metal Man (GM): ...So is most of the store...
Deloth lies back down on the cool grass. Soothing when you have third-degree burns from exploding fluffballs...
Flaeyn: "..." He then would do a body check for anything useful. "I apologize in advance..."
Metal Man (GM): The Shopkeep is pretty much KO'd.
Dragoshi: *Just... enters the now-ruined store.* >_>
Panzer sighs and looks for a phone book or something for Oak's number.
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi finds burnt money melted into the floor, smashed potion goo everywhere... there is a phone! ...And Oak's number.
Keikyoku picks the shopkeep's pockets.
Deloth: "...medicine please."
Panzer calls Oak.
Metal Man (GM): Julian exits the museum after learning of their space exploration, and ancient, extinct pokemon.
Dragoshi: *Just looks for any Pokeballs that're intact.* :x
Metal Man (GM): And the new Team Rocket history wing. He sees everyone else at a half-exploded Pokemart. As Dragoshi finds a piece of burning debris and burns his hand.
Julian: *Sipping what appears to be a medium Dr. Thunder through a straw.*
Deloth: "Julian... is that you over there?"
Julian: *Walks over to the destruction.* "...So... what'd I miss?"
Oak: *Telephone.* "...Do I hear... burning?"
Keikyoku looks for some pokeballs.
Panzer: "I made a way to make pokemon disappear for good."
Dragoshi: "...A Jigglypuff. ...that exploded."
Flaeyn takes the money, then props the Clerk the best he can. "Seriously Panzer... let's use our heads before we do this kind of stuff."
Deloth: "THE PAIN... IT BURNS..."
Oak: *Telephone.* "How?"
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku finds flaming debris.
Julian: "...Oh... You guys seen the museum?" *Nods in its direction.*
Metal Man (GM): That happens to be at the bottom of a shelf. The shelf falls on Keikyoku.
Panzer: "I went into a temporal time warp glitch hole, and..." *explains the rest.*
Dragoshi: *Just tries to find something that isn't debris... or on fire... or broken.*
Digifanatic: "It'd be kinda nice... but watching Panzer vs. Jigglypuff was way too funny."
Keikyoku rolls on the floor not wanting his fur to burn.
Oak: *Telephone.* "...Intriguing... I will have to explode this rift."
Julian: "Preeetty cool, that museum they got."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi finds a dominoes pizza box, and then slips on some liquid on the floor.
Julian: "Anyway... I'm gonna go check out the gym. You in?"
Panzer: "And the thing in there... It was a bit rude. But I want all the glitch balls you find."
Deloth slowly staggers to his feet and stumbles into the Pokecenter.
Digifanatic: "Jules, how pertinent do you think the museum will be to us?"
Oak: *Telephone.* "I'll get back to you, once I go over and get my son to help."
Flaeyn nods, following after Julian. "Lets rock."
Panzer imitates all the things calls off her CPU's memory as best as possible.
Keikyoku examines the rift.
Julian: "Fuck if I know. They got a new Team Rocket wing, but I don't think we care." *To the gym!*
Oak: *Telephone.* "...Weird."
Panzer: "Your pokedex recognize that?"
Metal Man (GM): It's easy for Panzer to imitate, as they sounded like digital screeching.
Digifanatic: "Heh. Whatever." *Gym.*
Julian: "It was just, y'know, nice. I recommend the audio tour."
Deloth: *Pokecenter for me.*
Oak: *Telephone.* "Missing... number? It... does."
Dragoshi: *...Just slowly follows behind the others.*
Julian: "I think Oak or someone was the narrator."
Panzer: "Missing number?"
Keikyoku goes to the pokecenter.
Oak: *Telephone.* "It... appears to be related to some... temporal instability. I'll have to get the newspaper for this... it sounds interesting."
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku enters the pokecenter. There is a Clefairy in there, and a nurse Joy, and... a weird machine.
Panzer: "Awesome. But the balls in there are useless, most vanish. You might find one real one, that, if you try to use it on a pokemon, it makes them vanish."
Deloth: "Hello there, my name is Deloth, and I'd really like any form of healing that you have." *ker-thump.*
Keikyoku: "Hey Mrs. Nurse, can you heal me?"
Oak: *Telephone.* "Hmmm... I shall have to see... it may teleport them instead."
Flaeyn looks at Keikyoku. "You'll be fine."
Panzer: "The pokemon -exploded-."
Nurse: "...Well, no... you're not a pokemon..."
Keikyoku: "Why can't your machine heal echidnas?"
Metal Man (GM): At the gym, Julian sees one trainer, and Brock, a guy with funky hair.
Deloth: "But I've still got third-degree burns and a Beedrill stinger in my spinal cord..."
Nurse: "What is an echidna?"
Digifanatic: *He's also there as well.*
Deloth: "Why do you think I keep FALLING?"
Keikyoku rests on the floor.
Digifanatic: *At the gym, that being.*
Flaeyn digs through his pocket, and gets out a Med kit. "Here. If you really say you need it, there."
Keikyoku: "Somehow I don't feel very healed."
Metal Man (GM): In the gym, Brock sits silently in his place. He is waiting for someone with pokemon to challenge him.
Julian: *Doesn't have any pokemon.*
Keikyoku: "No, keep your med kit, it would just be nice to be healed."
Dragoshi: *Has no Pokemon.*
Deloth: "Shut up, Kei."
Panzer: "I'll talk to you when we have more, Oak." *Gives him her comm frequency.* "You can reach me at that any time."
Flaeyn: "So?" He says, towards Deloth.
Oak: *Teleporter.* "Okay. Call you later."
Panzer hangs up. Leaves. Looks for her group.
Brock: "..." *More silence.* *Silent man who stands still and bides his time.*
Digifanatic: *to Julian.* "We could just ask them about Bill."
Deloth: "Look, Flaeyn, if you could just pull the drill out of my back..."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer see the door to the Pokecenter open.
Panzer looks instead for another rift. XD
Metal Man (GM): Somebody just entered.
Julian: "HEY! What you know about Bill?"
Flaeyn: "Understood." He does it swiftly, and then twirls the drill between his fingers.
Metal Man (GM): Panzer discovers a flower garden. Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!
Deloth: "GNNNGH--thank you."
Metal Man (GM): ...It's just a flower garden.
Panzer kicks some flowers up. "Meh."
Deloth slowly gets up now that that's not there.
Keikyoku takes the drill.
Metal Man (GM): Brock remains silent. He's...
Deloth: *looking at Nurse Joy.* "Uh... sorry about bleeding all over the floor."
Metal Man (GM): ...Biding his time.
Panzer looks one more time.
Nurse: "People can bleed? I thought they only white out."
Flaeyn: "We're... special."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer wanders into the lab and steals Nurse Joy's hat, then walks out.
Julian: *Walks up to him and waves his hand in his face!* "Anybody in there?"
Deloth looks down. "No, no, that's blood-- ..."
Panzer looks at the hat. "What the hell?"
Nurse: "...I see... very... special."
Flaeyn: "...Hm? Do we seem that odd to you?"
Panzer takes her helmet off and tries it on.
Deloth: "...Oh, hey, a new entry..." *scans the much larger pink thing behind the counter.*
Metal Man (GM): It looks goofy, but it Panzer. A man walks in and begins spraying Panzer with a substance that smells like lemons.
???: "Go away! Bad pokemon!"
Panzer makes holes in it for her ears and keeps it.
Panzer hisses and aims her rifle at him.
???: *Sprays the rifle, thinking it will go away.*
Pokedex: "Chansey. A healing pokemon."
Metal Man (GM): *BLAM* The man falls over, vanishes, leaving his repel on the ground.
Dragoshi: *Just... watches the weirdness go on.*
Digifanatic: "Julian, I don't think we'll get anything out of them unless we have Pokemon to fight them with--which we don't. I dunno about you, but I'm ready to go to Cerulean anytime now."
Panzer: "Fucker. I'm not a goddamn pokemon." She takes the Repel.
Pokedex: "It heals people... and pokemon... oddly, the ones in Pokemon centers don't do anything."
Keikyoku tries to get the Chansey to do her healing thing.
Julian: *Knocks on Brock's forehead.*
Metal Man (GM): Brock is a statue. He shows his absolute dedication to biding his time.
Julian: *Gives him a curly mustache with a magic marker.*
Panzer looks for something to wash off with. Goes into the Gym. "Anyone know why I got sprayed with lemon juice?"
Metal Man (GM): He... stands there... even then.
Panzer: "Want to fucking guess? Anyone? Anyone?"
Keikyoku heads for the gym.
Flaeyn bows to Joy. "Well, thank you for your time nonetheless." He'd motion Keikyoku, Deloth, and others that were in the center to follow him to the gym.
Nurse: "Have a good... day? Please come back with... injured... pokemon?"
Panzer is still wearing Joy's hat.
Metal Man (GM): She's too busy trying not to either laugh or run away at how strange that is.
Julian: *...Adds a monocle and the message 'I HUNGER FOR DONG' across Brock's forehead, then exits.* "We ain't gettin' anything outta this guy."
Dragoshi: "...Because you stepped on his flowers?" *Shrugs.*
Metal Man (GM): Julian goes to leave.
Keikyoku draws devil horns on brock.
Metal Man (GM): Brock uses BIDE!
Digifanatic: "Indeed..." *and then laughs at Julian's 'graffiti.'*
Panzer walks up to Brock. "What is this crap this guy sprayed on me?"
Metal Man (GM): He runs up and goes to write on Julian, and knock on his forehead.
Flaeyn has a small moment of aborableness, for his attitude, as he groans. "S-Sorry..." He says to Joy before leaving.
Metal Man (GM): WITH TWICE THE FORCE!
Deloth: "... Ma'am, we're REALLY, REALLY sorry about this."
Metal Man (GM): Julian's face is fully drawn on, and he gets knocked over. Brock then walks up to the pedestal and continues standing there, silently.
Panzer walks up to Nurse Joy. She frowns and meows.
Panzer just meows.
Panzer: *In sentences.* >>;
Keikyoku: "Now the horns fit the part, although the mustache is stylish in general."
Digifanatic: "I AM LEAVING EN ROUTE TO CERULEAN. RIGHT. ABOUT." *as he leaves the door.* "Now." *grins.*
Nurse: "I... can't heal pokemon without a pokeball... and I'm forced to stand here."
Panzer: "I took your hat. Do you have any water? I got sprayed."
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku would see Brock is biding again. He might want to be careful. He might double-marker Keikyoku next.
Nurse: "Well... I'll give you a bottle of water if you give me my hat back."
Deloth just takes a seat on a couch and buries his face in his hands.
Flaeyn: "Forced to stand here... Why?"
Panzer: "Deal." She hands it over and puts her helmet on.
Julian: *Julian lays dazed a few moments after the assault... blinks, then gets up and walks out. He's tired of this town and everyone in it. To Cerulean!*
Metal Man (GM): She gives Panzer a bottle of water and puts the had back on.
Dragoshi: "...yea, goin' to Cerulean sounds like a good idea." *Just... walks on along. A-yep.*
Panzer: "Thanks." She walks out and pours the water on and tries to rinse off the repel.
Metal Man (GM): Slowly, but surely, the Questers begin to leave Brock's gym's town. The repel is easily rinsed off.
Keikyoku stares at brock, silently challenging him to a staring contest.
Digifanatic: .oO(So curiosity has grabbed every Quester except me.)
Panzer walks with the rest, keeping look out for rifts.
Deloth silently stands up and starts walking towards Cerulean.
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku and Brock continue staring at one another... Brock just won't stop staring back...
Julian: "Panzer, any more of that water left?"
Metal Man (GM): ...In fact... he's staring back with TWICE THE FORCE of Keikyoku...
Panzer: "A little."
Deloth: "Guys, tell me something. Why did I choose to take this job?"
Panzer hands half the bottle over, that's all that's left.
Flaeyn would return back to the Gym, then he'd slowly make his way to Brock around the trainer. "Hello... perhaps you know of a person named Bill?"
Julian: *Julian uses said water and copious ammounts of elbow grease to get the marker off HIS face.*
Metal Man (GM): Julian gets it off his face, however it appears Brock did it so forcefully, the marker marks are still faintly on his face. Brock blinks... TWICE.
Panzer: "Aren't we missing a few people, Julian? That little punk... And that other little punk? Oh well. Let's leave them." she leaves town.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers can walk into the Mount Moon area now.
Julian: "Fuck them."
Metal Man (GM): In fact, most of them are doing that.
Flaeyn pauses, then sighs. "I want to challenge you."
Keikyoku flicks himself.
Dragoshi: *Just follows behind the duo of Panz and Julian, a little dazed and confused.*
Brock: "..." He stares at Flaeyn.
Digifanatic: "Flaeyn's not a punk in my book. The other guy, though..."
Panzer: "They're both punks."
Metal Man (GM): Brock does not apparently care unless someone has pokemon.
Flaeyn shrugs, then runs back to the other group.
Deloth: "Flaeyn's okay, the rat's an ass. Panz, I'll pay you to kill him."
Metal Man (GM): As the others walk into the forest, the faint smell of repel on Panzer causes all matter of pokemon to run away from the group. It's actually sort of useful.
Panzer: "Give me a good draft of beer and I'll do it." *blinks at the pokemon darting.* "Hmm."
Deloth: "I will if we ever hit a bar."
Metal Man (GM): Uh-oh. There's another pokemon trainer in the way.
Keikyoku leaves the gym and follows everybody else.
Flaeyn: "No wonder they're scared of you..."
Deloth: "I think I might take up drinking, too..."
Metal Man (GM): She sees Panzer and walks up to her, causing a force field to block the path.
???: "Jigglypuff are cute!"
Metal Man (GM): She robotically reaches for a pokemon belt.
Julian: *Doesn't have time for this shit, eye gouge.*
Panzer: "Look bitch, I'll shoot you too."
Deloth: *Punch to the stomach.*
Panzer: "You asked for it."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth punches her out. She vanishes slowly.
Panzer: "That works."
Panzer shoots the pokeball just in case. >>;
Dragoshi: *Moving on...*
Deloth: "That felt good." *continues.*
Digifanatic: "You know, I'm just waiting for the voice that says, 'End of simulation.'"
Metal Man (GM): It vanishes, too!
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach a cave entrance.
Deloth: "Digi, is the whole world going insane, or is it just me?"
Metal Man (GM): There's also a pokemart just outside of it.
Flaeyn just follows Dragoshi. "Stop trying to beat up everyone you see..."
Panzer looks for rifts. <<;
Metal Man (GM): The screeches of bats are heard inside the cave.
Digifanatic: "Just this continent."
Metal Man (GM): The cave... looks like a rift.
Julian: "They're robots. FUCK robots."
Digifanatic: "Or whatever you want to call Kanto."
Panzer walks in.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk into the cave.
Digifanatic: *Mt. Moon.*
Panzer: "Here kitty kitty kitty..."
Metal Man (GM): Clouds of bats fall from the ceiling and go to attack... and run because of Panzer.
Deloth heads in, taking out his laser sword as a light source, juuuuuust in case.
Panzer switches to nightvision.
Keikyoku follows everybody.
Deloth: "...I never knew Pokemon were so afraid of lemon Pine-Sol."
Panzer sprays herself with more repel. >>; "Anyone else want some? There's a little left."
Flaeyn pulls out Sereharde, assisting in illuminating the area with Deloth.
Metal Man (GM): Panzer replenishes the smell before they can eventually adapt to it. Any remaining pokemon are now far away.
Deloth: "Uh... which way should we go?"
Flaeyn: "Ah. I wouldn't mind taking it." He says towards Panzer.
Metal Man (GM): There is a left and a right path.
Julian: *Always Go Right.*
Panzer hands over the repel to anyone who wants it.
Keikyoku takes the rest of the repel "Lemony fresh!"
Panzer goes left. >>;
Metal Man (GM): Panzer walks left.
Panzer: "You fuckers are bad luck." *dies.*
Metal Man (GM): A pokemon trainer goes to challenge her to a battle.
Flaeyn flips a coin... Aaannd goes right.
Metal Man (GM): The people going right find a ladder down.
Keikyoku waits for the majority of the group.
Dragoshi: *I always thought you were supposed to GO WEST. Ehhh... I'm goin' west anyway. 'Cause hey, it worked for Lone Wolf.*
Panzer shoots the trainer.
Metal Man (GM): The trainer vanishes.
Keikyoku goes to the right and down.
Panzer keeps going.
Deloth starts climbing down with his tentacles, keeping his sword in hands.
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi catches up to Panzer. Panzer finds the cave wall.
Deloth: "I love these things sometimes."
Digifanatic wonders if his Pokedex has a map of Mt. Moon.
Metal Man (GM): The others climb down, finding a small passageway downwards and then to the left.
Panzer: "Dammit." She goes back and goes down the ladder.
Pokedex: "Error: Not a pokemon."
Deloth heads down that pathway.
Metal Man (GM): Panzer catches up, as the group finds yet another ladder down.
Dragoshi: *Goes back to the right...*
Metal Man (GM): It's pretty easy, since all the pokemon are afraid of the smell of lemons.
Deloth: *Down, down, down, whoops, about to sit down.*
Panzer: "Sorry Drag. I like to be different." *follows the rest.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers go very deep into the cave.
Dragoshi: "Eh. No prob."
Digifanatic: *down, really.*
Metal Man (GM): They see an archaeologist. There are two skeletal outlines in the ground.
Keikyoku smells the lemoney freshness of the repel.
Deloth: "Next store we hit, someone buy some lemon-scented dish soap and just carry that."
???: "Gah! Who are you?"
Panzer goes up behind him and growls. Angrily.
Deloth: "Just passing through."
???: "I was just steal--legally finding these skeletons!"
Flaeyn: "Roger that." He says to Deloth.
Digifanatic: .oO(And are you another robotically moving guy?)
???: "...I'll split them with you if you let me go."
Julian: "What are they?"
???: "One for you, one for me."
Panzer: "Or I kill you and take them both."
???: "Ancient, dead pokemon skeletons."
Metal Man (GM): Julian would recognize them. Omanyte and Kabuto.
Julian: "Bitch I already got a skeleton. What I need another one for?"
Deloth walks over and grabs the left one. "Fine, whatever. Gimme that."
Julian: "...Ohhhh, THESE guys."
???: "Illegal reviving!"
Dragoshi: "...Illegal reviving. Right."
Panzer: "So. You leave, we take them both, kay?"
???: "Ancient pokemon can be revived!" He takes the one on the right. Deloth gets the Kabuto skeleton. "No, I take one, you take one. I found them, you threatened to kill me."
Julian: "How about we trade? I give you one skeleton for the one you got."
Panzer: "I threaten everyone."
???: "...Okay... What's the skeleton?"
Julian: "It's a good one."
???: "Let me see."
Panzer grumbles and keeps goin.
Julian: *Pulls out that skeleton he picked up back in the old Eggman base.*
Flaeyn: "No, no, NO! Wait, you're going to create a Paradox! Julian, don't mess wit--" He facepalms.
???: "Wow! Sure!"
Deloth pockets the fossil into Hammerspace and keeps walking.
Metal Man (GM): He offers to give the skeleton to Julian in exchange for the other skeleton.
Flaeyn: "Our skeleton can reflect magic, what the hell are you thinking?!"
Julian: "Maybe this dead pokemon can too! You ever think of that? 'Sides, ain't seen this one do anything since it shorted out that field."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer walks to the left. A man in an all-black outfit, with a big R on it walks into her way. Hm. Maybe the R stands for 'Retard' He looks really dumb.
Panzer: "Move or you die like everyone else."
Deloth: "Out of the way."
Julian: "Here, I got an idea. You hold this one." *Hands the anti-magic skeleton to Flae.*
Flaeyn: "Okay, okay." He says, sighing. "Go waste it."
???: "Never! I will whip your eye out!"
Dragoshi: *Just stays in the middle of the group, sword ready...*
Metal Man (GM): Panzer is whipped in the eye. -1 to accuracy,
Flaeyn does so, holding the skeleton. "Riight..."
Panzer rubs her eye. Blows his head off.
???: "Hahahahahaha! Team Rocket strikes again!"
Dragoshi: *...And, that's Dragoshi's signal to run the R guy through.* >_>
Julian: "You feelin' any kinda pull? Like it's suckin' yo magic out or somethin'?"
Deloth does a dual sword stab at Rocket-boy here.
Scientist: "No... I feel fine."
Flaeyn: "..." He pauses. "Nope."
Scientist: "Thanks!" He... walks away.
Julian: "Then it don't work anymore, now does it?"
Digifanatic: *to himself.* "And why aren't we out of this cave yet?"
Metal Man (GM): The Rocket man is stabbed to death. The Scientist vanishes with the skeleton. Hm. He spoke of illegal reviving...
Keikyoku steals some fossils.
Metal Man (GM): Who knows what might happen?!?!
Panzer grumbles and rubs her eye and keeps going.
Julian: *Has an Omanyte or whatever. Woo!*
Flaeyn: "What happened to avoiding conflict..?" He glares at Julian. "By the way, he took the skeleton. Next thing we'll see is Eggman fused with a yellow mouse. Nice going genius."
Deloth keeps walking.
Julian: "Relax. Nothin' works on humans here anyway."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers keep going. Now there is another guy in an R suit.
???: "Prepare for rubble! No, that's wrong."
Julian: "If he's lucky it'll be some abomination that can't breathe on its own."
???: "Prepare for shovel!"
Deloth: *Stab again.*
???: "...Dang it..."
Metal Man (GM): He falls over.
Dragoshi: "...well, this is going along swimmingly."
Metal Man (GM): Panzer wanders off, and vanishes, on behalf of being whipped in the eye.
Julian: "'Sides, we don't even know who it was. Maybe it was a good guy or somethin'! Meanwhile, I got this fossil thing." *Holds it up.* "Fair trade, I think."
Deloth checks Rocketdude for any Pokeballs.
Flaeyn: "Oh dear..." He lets out a cry of despair. "I'm surrounded by idiots!"
Metal Man (GM): They vanish. Dang it!
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are now nearly out of the cave!
Digifanatic books it out of there if he can.
Deloth makes for the exit, then.
Dragoshi: *Exit CAVE.*
Flaeyn does so after everyone else does, making sure nothing tries to attack them.
Julian: "Then you can fuckin' LEAVE, motherfucker, if you don't like it! There's the fuckin' door, you take it!" *Points in the opposite direction, heads to where everyone else was.*
Deloth: "Wow. Do you realize how many years in jail we could spend for all these murders?"
Keikyoku: "I couldn't spend any time in jail, I didn't commit any."
Flaeyn: "That's what I'm talking about, Deloth..."
Dragoshi: "...Does this place even have a jail?"
Deloth: "Probably not, no."
Flaeyn: "I'd really like to kick you in the teeth, but why should I improve your looks?" He says towards Julian.
Deloth: "Considering everyone here seems to have the mental power of a walnut, though, I'm not too distressed..."
Julian: "Ain't no-one keepin' you around, Mr. angel man! You just gonna whine and complain all the time, might as well leave."
Flaeyn: "I've come across grandmas, no, rotting bodies, that were more offensive than you..."
Keikyoku doesn't complain about anything and is glad to be on land.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers head on outside the maze... er... Mount Moon. You see a series of fences.
Deloth wipes some Rocket blood off of his regular sword and sheathes them both.
Metal Man (GM): Which are custom made for jumping over. But only one way.
Deloth: *...That makes no damn sense.*
Metal Man (GM): The way in which everyone is going.
Keikyoku kicks a fence.
Metal Man (GM): The fence is unaffected. Keikyoku sees... what looks like a Gazebo in the distance.
Julian: "Call the cops, I don't give a shit." *Onwards!*
Dragoshi: *Moving on...*
Digifanatic: *jumps over. Seriously, what is this he doesn't even.*
Flaeyn: "Wouldn't have to." He catches up with the rest.
Metal Man (GM): As the others walk across, leaping fences... they see there's a small stone wall blocking their access to a secret glowing cave. Huh.
Keikyoku skates toward the gazebo.
Deloth: "..." *looks up and tries to see if the cave wall is climbable.
Metal Man (GM): There's a wall in the way of the gazebo, too.
Flaeyn attempts to..
Deloth: "Stay back, guys, I'm gonna try something stupid." *makes a jump and tries to climb over the wall.*
Julian: *Climb that wall!*
Metal Man (GM): Deloth leaps into the wall. Deloth's thick skull protects him.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth falls off the side of the wall.
Digifanatic: *simply climbing. No running leaps.*
Keikyoku tries to climb the wall.
Deloth: "Grrrrr..." *EXPLODES that damn wall.*
Metal Man (GM): *BOOM.* The wall dissappears. 'DELOTH USED CUT!' *GLITCH* *BZLTBZLBT.*
Flaeyn: "... Well gee."
Digifanatic: *walks past.*
Dragoshi: *...Uses the Medkit before following on along...*
Deloth: "There! Explosion beats wall! Explosion beats gun! EXPLOSION BEATS EVERYTHING!"
Metal Man (GM): The bizarrely glowing cave is now open.
Keikyoku skates forward.
Deloth swims over to the cave, patches himself up with a Medkit, and walks in.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk inside.
Metal Man (GM): Eerie, evil music echoes in the cavern. Bugs the size of cars and giant mushroom monsters are everywhere. Shooting one another with attacks that destroy huge boulders.
Metal Man (GM): Monstrous three-headed birds shoot three lasers at giant exploding Electrodes.
Dragoshi: "..." *Exits the way he came.*
Keikyoku hums the music and sprays some lemony fresh pine sol on himself.
Deloth simply turns around and heads out.
Metal Man (GM): They don't appear like the type to fear that specific smell.
Metal Man (GM): And it looks like one would have to swim between debris-filled islands just to go down deeper.
Deloth: "C'mon, Drag, let's go cause another town's worth of pain and misery."
Flaeyn exits out. "Theeeerre we go. Conflict avoided."
Keikyoku runs out of the cave.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers flee the Unknown Dungeon and it's painful deadliness.
Dragoshi: "...I'd rather go find Bill."
Deloth: "Yeah, but in Viridian, the two sort of seemed to be related."
Julian: *So... we were heading to Cerulean.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk into Cerulean.
Keikyoku: "I don't like that cave, it had water."
Metal Man (GM): There's a gym... a bike store...
Deloth: "...Speaking of which, we need to get there quick before this gets on the news."
Metal Man (GM): A house that looks like it was broken into... And a bridge north.
Flaeyn: "Do they even have a news?"
Digifanatic just wants the bridge noth. *There's that confounded bridge!*
Deloth: "If they DO, we're top story."
Keikyoku enters the house.
Dragoshi: "..." *Shrugs, and moseys on along to the bridge.*
Metal Man (GM): There's five rockets on the bridge.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are gonna have to stab your way to victory!
Julian: *Ain't scared of no Rockets.*
Keikyoku turns around and follows everyone to the bridge.
???: "Stop. This is the bridge gang. The first rule of bridge gang is you don't talk about bridge gang."
Metal Man (GM): He walks in the way and goes to take out a pokeball.
Deloth tries Exploding the first one, because his patience is at ZE-RO.
Julian: "First rule of bridge gang is get off the fucking bridge" *Grapple!*
Flaeyn: "...Oh just nevermind..." He just takes up Sixty Crosses, attempts to smash them all.
Metal Man (GM): *BLAM* He vanishes.
Keikyoku: "Well you just broke rule #1 there buddy."
Dragoshi: *moar liek... Loot, then stab... the second guy.* >_>
Metal Man (GM): It rains crosses. Into the water.
Julian: *...Grapples the second one!*
Deloth explodes the OTHER four, one by one.
Metal Man (GM): Julian hurls one into the water. Dragoshi stabs another one. Any remaining ones run away. They don't have anything valuable, as it keeps... disappearing. And exploding.
Deloth: "There. Quickest Pokemon battle ever."
Julian: "Almost there..." *North some more.*
Dragoshi: "...okay, now that that's over with..." *Puts away his sword, and keeps headin' north.*
Deloth: *North, eh?*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are almost there... they walk through some places and encounter another trainer in their way.
???: "I'm a tough guy!"
Metal Man (GM): He generates the force field in the way as usual.
???: "I'm a holy guy!" *Vanish.*
Dragoshi: "... Dammit, Del. Couldn't you have at least let me try and steal from him first?" >_>;;
Metal Man (GM): The Questers FINALLY make it to Bill's house. That tough guy's pokeballs were exploded. All of them.
Deloth: "I'm getting really, really tired of this, Drago." *knocks on the door impatiently.*
Julian: "Look, we're here, shut up so we can get this guy."
Digifanatic: *just stays in the back group and shakes his head.*
Metal Man (GM): The door opens.
Deloth walks in, looking around.
Keikyoku skates in and looks for anything shiny.
Julian: *Enters after someone else.*
Dragoshi: *Gets in the house.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers see... oh no! It's that gigantic rhinocerous pokemon from the cave!
???: "Uh... could you guys help me out?"
Metal Man (GM): Weird... it's talking.
Deloth first scans i--whoa.
Dragoshi: "...uhhh... sure. I guess. What needs to be done...?"
Julian: *What the fuck.* "What the fuck happened HERE?!"
???: "I'm making a teleportation system, and I accidentally somehow turned myself into a pokemon. Again."
Julian: *throws hands up.* "That's great. What you need us to do?"
Keikyoku sprays it with the tiny drops of repel that are left.
Deloth: "...That's AWESOME. Can I try it after you iron out the bugs?"
Keikyoku: "Bad rhino."
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku experiences what it's like to be attacked by a Rhino. Keikyoku goes flying out the door and lands in the ocean.
Metal Man (GM): He walks into the teleporter thing.
Deloth: "I mean, dude, you may not be good at teleportations, but you've got the market for the Pokemon furry fandom airtight."
Keikyoku tries to get back on shore.
Julian: "The who?"
Metal Man (GM): There's a big red button someone can push. It's prettty easy.
Julian: *PUSH BUTTAN.*
Metal Man (GM): There's a fence... against the ocean. Keikyoku will get back... in a moment.
Dragoshi: *GET BACON?*
Metal Man (GM): *BEEP* He walks out, now a human.
Deloth: *THAT WAS EASY.*
Julian: *ENJOY BACO-whoops.*
Keikyoku clings to the fence.
Bill: "Okay, that's much better. Now what did you want?"
Julian: "You Bill?"
Bill: "Yes, I'm Bill."
Julian: "We need your help."
Bill: "I made the pokemon storage system."
Digifanatic: .oO(May someone stop feeding me ACID?)
Bill: "What do you need?"
Julian: "How good are you at fixin' airships?"
Bill: "What's an airship?"
Flaeyn: "How good are you at charging lazors?"
Deloth: "Are you good at fixing things, period?"
Julian: "You'll figure it out."
Bill: "...Yes... I know what lasers are... but not airships. ...Do you need my help? ... Just how far away is it? You don't look like you're around from here."
Julian: "...Pretty far."
Deloth: "We're not."
Bill: "...I never leave my house, so... we have to circumnavigate the island to get back to where you probably came from. Unless one of you is a bird."
Julian: *points at Deloth.* "He kinda is."
Metal Man (GM): For the moment, Keikyoku is slowly climbing the fence.
Deloth: "Well, I have bird wings, if that counts."
Bill: "...Can he FLY?"
Julian: "Can you teach him to?"
Deloth: "I can try."
Dragoshi: "...He can teleport."
Bill: "If he is a bird pokemon. ...He knows TELEPORT? What was the last Pokemon center you entered?"
Deloth: "Back at Viridian."
Metal Man (GM): Keikyoku enters the room at this time.
Bill: "Have him use Teleport."
Julian: "Del!" *snaps fingers.*
Deloth: "Roger. We're going on a magic carpet ride." *VORTEX.*
Metal Man (GM): WARPWARPWARP. The group flies directly into the sky. While spinning. With everyone else. They float over the entire island, then land in front of the Viridian City pokecenter.
Bill: "So. Shall we leave now?"
Deloth: "Daaaaang. I need to learn to use that more often."
Julian: "Works for me." *To The... boat?*
Metal Man (GM): The group walks to the boat... without a problem.
Deloth: *TO THE BOAT!*
Dragoshi: "...Yea, that sounds good." *To... the boat, I guess.*
Metal Man (GM): MISSION COMPLETE.
Deloth: *Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with us...*
Digifanatic: "Let's get out of here."
Metal Man (GM): And so, the Questers found Bill, and were soon to flee from Kanto, the world's most bizarre continent. If you don't count the one with the robotic invincible vampire who shoots people. However, on their journey, they would soon meet new challenges, for not everyone was pleased with their visit. *Shadowy image of a man holding a glass of whiskey.*
???: "Secretary. What happened to the fossil stealing expedition?"
???2: "A bunch of thieves killed our men. We obtained a bizarre skeleton, though."
Metal Man (GM): The man crushes the whiskey glass with his bear, err, bare hands.
???2: "We've been trying to revive it, but it does nothing but deactivate our machines."
Metal Man (GM): He crushes the phone with his bare hands. *Camera moves to secretary, staring at phone.*
???2: "I hate it when he does that."
Metal Man (GM): Two people walk into the lobby, and the secretary sees them. They look like bums, with worn out T-shirts and bare feet. Their socks wore out months ago.
Jesse: "James... why are we going back here?"
James: "The same reason we come back here every time! TO BEG FOR A JOB!!!"
Secretary: "Oh... you are here..." The secretary smirks. "The boss is in a good mood. Go and see him."
James: "Oh, goodie!" He runs in. Jesse follows.
Metal Man (GM): In the office, Giovanni picks up a rubix cube. He dramatically crushes it.
James: "Uh... is this the wrong time?"
James: "We... could... help you?"
Giovanni: "..." He goes to smash something else, until he gets a thought. "Yes... I have the perfect... job... for you..."
Metal Man (GM): He restrains his hand from crushing the lamp on his desk.
Giovanni: "Some bandits attacked our fossil expedition... apprehend them. They are... very weak."
James: "That sounds excellent!"
Jesse: "I don't know... that time he told us to put Mewtwo in his cage... that was not good..."
James: "But this isn't Mewtwo! It's unknown bandits!"
Giovanni: "I'll pay you 10,000 pokedollars." He writes it down. "But you have to defeat them, and bring them to me! Now, get out of my office!"
Metal Man (GM): The telephone's base is dramatically thrown into James' face.
James: "...Yes... master..."
Metal Man (GM): He runs away. Jesse follows. The door shuts behind them, as Giovanni monologues to himself.
Giovanni: "I'll crush those punk kids... ruining my schemes... I must monopolize all the gambling... drinking... and stealing parts of this island... and anyone more evil than me must be destroyed! While those idiots get themselves killed... I'll get a helicopter... and a thousand pokedollars... and make something that will destroy those scum forever!!!"
Metal Man (GM): *Dramatic fadeout.*
