"People get upset when they're doing things and I can't keep to myself, that's pretty normal." Mica explained with some uncertainty. "They don't like getting interrupted and I just get too excited to wanna stop, and then I get in trouble. What were they doing?" Mica watched Donovan with big eyes and a slight lilt of her head.
Donovans cheeks burned redder and he stammers for a moment before collecting himself "Well....I can't be certain, since we just saw a little of what was happening. But sometimes" He breathed deeply, not expecting to have a conversation like this today "Sometimes when two people, and I guess Pokemon, like each other a lot, the get really close and play with each others hair and...." He blushes more "They do some other stuff too." He starts to trail off as he tries and think of another way to put it.
After a few moments he shrugs "I guess I don't know for sure what they were doing. But it just seemed like they were doing what young couples do when they're alone..."
Mica visibly brightened at this. "Can we do the other stuff? We're alone a lot and I really liked it when you got the stuff out of my hair." There was a pause and she gave Donovan a suspicious look. "You're not telling me cause you think I'm not mature enough to handle it." She pouted at him across the table.
Donovan placed his fingers on Micas chin and lifted her face until their eyes met "It's not that I don't think you're not mature enough. It's just that..."
He sighed and pulled his hand away, waving it aimlessly in the air for a moment "It's just that..Well the other stuff isn't something that should just be done on a whim and....and well...." His cheeks were blazing once more "Maybe we should talk about this later....or just....Let's start with this" He looks back at Mica and scratches the back of his head "What do you think they were doing?"
"I just thought they were playing with each other's hair and having fun." Mica reminded Donovan matter-of-factly. "You were the one who implied that it was something else, so now I wanna know and you're being all squirrely." Mica tilted her head and considered a moment, nodding slowly. Gently, she moved her empty plate to one side, and dropped into a lunge position, one leg bent 90 degrees with foot planted, and down on the opposite knee. "I wanna know Donovan, last chance~" There's an odd, playful glint in her eye.
"Mica...what are you doing" Donovans eyes grow wide as Mica adopts what appears to be a battle stance. Falling out of his seat, he began to scramble backwards on the ground, his eyes never leaving Mica "I mean look there's lots of things they could have been doing. Maybe they were just playing with each others hair or..." He continued to skirt backwards until he found himself up against a tree. In that moment he understood how the Froakie and the little brown Pokemon had felt with the Skitty watching them. Even if they seemed like they were playing, the feeling of being the prey in a situation is never a good one. "Maybe they were just kissing or something....that's normally where I stopped...." His voice had almost completely shrunk into itself by the end as he pushed up against the tree
"Well now you're just saying stuff!" She declared challengingly as she vaulted over the table with two steps and bounded across the gap between them. "Micaaaaaaaaaaa!". The girl bellowed her Pokemon cry through the woods, lunging at Donovan to get ahold of him. She'd show she was the stronger Pokemon and then he'd have to tell her. OwO
Donovan attempted to roll out of the way, but just managed to make it on to his stomach and began to crawl away when Mica landed on him "Ahhhhh, I'm not just saying stuff!"
He pushed his head down inbetween his arms and held it there near the ground. He wouldn't give in just cause she was stronger than him...there wasn't much of a chance of him getting out, but he could hold a secret if he wanted to, and for some reason this was where he decided to make his stand...."I'mnottellingjustcauseyou'restronger" His words come through muffled as he refuses to lift his head
Mica dug her hands up under Donovan and easily flipped him onto his back, before straddling the boys hips and sprawling herself across his front. Folding her arms across his chest, she propped her head up on her wrists and watched him with a small smile. "We're friends and you like plants, aren't you supposed to teach me, and help me grow and stuff? I don't think those Pokemon were kissing, neither of them was old enough to be the other's mom. At least they didn't look it. Esthia probably gave horrible splintery kisses, and that would be the worst kind of grandma kiss."

Donovan couldn't suppress his laughter, and he looked at Mica with a smile as he shook his head "Family kisses are the only type of kisses."
He struggles to get out for a moment before turning back to her, an idea having popped into his head "Alright fine, I'll tell you, but you can't just keep saying that I'm saying stuff or that I'm making it up. I'm speaking from experience here" He giggles a little bit as he tries to be serious "Sometimes, when two people, and I guess Pokemon, like each other as more than friends they'll get real close, and play with each other hair or scratch each others heads, anything to feel closer. And then they'll kiss. But not like a kiss on the cheek or anything like with family. They'll kiss each other on the lips. That's what I think they were doing, they were just in the getting closer phase"
"Oh!" Mica replied with some surprise. She had settled lower over him as he begun to explain, watching him with big, thoughtful eyes. Turning her head sideways, she wrapped her arms around him and pressed her ear to his breast, listening to his heartbeat. "I've enjoyed getting closer to you." She confided softly. "I don't know about kissing and stuff though, that sounds weird. Food goes there, why would you even do that?" She wondered aloud, and started to extricate herself from him.
Donovan laughs as he dusts himself off and pushes himself up as Mica dismounts "I guess I don't really know why we do it, it's just a thing that people do, cause it feels nice and is a way to show how close you are with the person...Or something"
He looked over to double check that the Pokemon hadn't run off in the commotion "I hope our new friends weren't scared off by that"
Donovan's own Pokémon seem to have just been watching with a mix of apprehension and curiosity, the cat appears to have fallen asleep, and the Froakie and rodent look to be just impassively watching. It seems like all are accounted for.
Mica gives a stretch and beckons the rodent over, leaning down and holding her hands towards it. "Come here little ringcoon, I have something I wanna ask you. I need to talk to pinkcat too, but it's napping. We should probably get going soon Donovan, but it's good to take a break once in awhile to keep spirits high, you know?"
The furry rodent cautiously comes over towards Mica, still a little wary, but less so after the meal. It glances over at the pink cat when Mica mentions it, which seems to have that unerring feline sense of telling when someone's looking at it. It seems to still be tired though, and just blearily blinks one eye open with a sleepy "Nyaaaa...."
The Froakie, for its part, seems to consider the berry and the offer, sitting in one spot. It doesn't move closer, but it also doesn't move away. Its head is clearly following the path that the berry is making, though, bobbing up and down.
"You see, we're on this big adventure, it's supposed to be about making friends, growing up, and seeing the world. Humans aren't strong in the way that Pokemon are though, I know pinkcat makes you uncomfortable, and I was gonna ask him too, but if that would make you uncomfortable, I understand." Mica holds out a Pokeball to the Sentret. "Come with me? There will always be food and snuggles, and when something scary happens I'll be right there too."

Donovan tosses the Froakie the Berry, before quickly reaching in and pulling out an empty Pokeball. He holds it forward and smiles "I could always try battling you and catching you that way, but I'd rather this be your choice. Me and Mica will be good company for you, as will the rest of our teams. And you'll be making a real big difference in the world. So, what do you say? Will you join my team?"
You caught a Sentret! Level: 10 Gender: Male Nature: Naïve Moves: Foresight, Scratch, Defense Curl, Quick Attack, Natural Gift Ability: Keen Eye
The Froakie jumps up and gobbles down the tossed berry, before cocking its head, seeming to give it some more thought... and then shoots a tongue out towards the ball, striking it dead in the center, and proceeds to be sucked inside without a fuss.
Mica's Dex prompted her to send a Pokemon to storage, so she opted to send Apex. "You can take a rest friend, it's been a busy week for you so far.- I'm gonna give someone else a chance to show their colors!" Mica moved over to rub between the remaining Skitty's ears. "We had fun today, and we can have more if you want, just not here." Mica offered it a Pokeball.

Hi there! I'm Seya, a 24 y.o. editor in Atlantic Canada. I enjoy writing, reading, webcomics, art, worldbuilding, and video games (I can talk for ages about SotC and Monster Hunter...). Although I'm relatively new to playing Pokémon Tabletop via forum, I've been putting together sites like this for a long time, and I'm really excited to work with you all to create an awesome environment for Pokémon roleplay. While my job here is primarily to keep the site running smoothly, I'm always happy to chat, offer advice, and deal with any problems you run across. Let me know if I can be of any help. Inbox is always open! Cheers! xx :)
Hello! I'm Sly, the East Coast mod representative! I'm a 22 year old tax accountant who is exactly as exciting as that sounds, I'm sure. PTU is my major hobby, I run several games (of which the Geode games are my pet project), and I read a disgusting amount of fanfiction. I've been a member of the community for about a year, consider myself more GM material than player material, and am dedicated to helping make your time here enjoyable! If there's ever anything you need, don't be afraid to send me an owl! (Or a PM, I guess, if that works better for you.)
Hey there! I’m DataNinja, the West Coast representative. I'm the most active Staff member on here, so if you need something, try giving me a poke first, and I'll see if I can help sort out your problem. Always happy to help!
(1 May 2015): "For our first pack, we’re focusing on utility character options. Hopefully, this will give you both interesting insights into our dev process as we make changes over time and another focused avenue to give us feedback on what you’d like to see out of PTU."
People are out there, yes, but if you're looking for a game, sorry to say that things seem to be winding down overall. There's basically been... 3 games in the last 2 years, none of which got off the ground.

Does anyone know where the latest Roll20 JSON Exporter for the Fancy Sheet is?
May 22, 2020 23:59:17 GMT
UwUs into the void...
May 14, 2020 2:56:43 GMT
It's very slow, yes. You'll probably finish working on your game before one pops up here, and if you create a recruitment for it you can expect to be swarmed with applicants.
May 7, 2020 4:47:37 GMT
New games seem to open up slowly here, but if new people are still welcome, I don't mind waiting around (or working on my own). It looks like there's some useful stuff to browse in the meantime.

Anyone else here a Hunter x Hunter fan?

Keep an eye on the recruitment area of this website. They're rare nowadays, but any new games that crop up will show up there. If it's a live game you want though, you're outta luck.
Dec 2, 2019 19:05:30 GMT
but how else do i find games then?
Nov 28, 2019 6:17:00 GMT
Sounds to me like they weren't a group you'd want to be part of anyway.
Nov 27, 2019 22:17:34 GMT
i wanted to join a living server on roll20 to learn the system but they ignored my application for 2 weeks then blocked me

Basically, GMs post recruitments in the appropriate section, and then players apply to the open games. Unfortunately, there has been a rather... small amount of games posted lately, but there's one currently recruiting right now.

How does this site work?

Post on the Game Masters Seeking Players page. There are plenty examples there to go off of.
