"What's going on!" the boisterous one said as the door shut behind him and the meek one a few seconds passed when an "Ouch!" was heard from behind the door "Urgh Timburr you try" a loud pokemon cry was than heard "Dang it! You burn me and my pokemon. You're dead professor, Timburr help me out" a bang than could be heard, than another the door creaking on it's hinges before busting off.
A large man, in a sailor's outfit a couple sizes too small,letting a black undershirt be seen with a purple A on it,came shooting out immedietly getting hit in the face with a Mud bomb "What the heck was that!" he yelled trying to wipe the mud from his eyes a bruise forming on his head. The man was followed by a Timburr a burn on it's hand than a smaller guy in a sailor outfit about 2 sizes to large, with a Pidove on his shoulder.
"Oh great, there are trainers on board. We're never going to pull this off" the smaller one moaned seeing Sarah and Zuzu.
"Stop your whining we'll just beat her, and go find the professor" the large man said looking at Sarah
Tamira couldn't believe it. There was someone stupid enough to fall for the trap. And what's more, the other one was to timid to stop him from committing acts of stupidity, and they all got trapped in the room. Well, temporarily anyways. As soon as Tamira heard the door break, she jumped out of her room, with her Treecko following. "Lets get them, Treecko. Use absorb!" she exclaimed. Treecko activated absorb on the Timburr, and as he did, Tamira glared menacingly, trying to intimidate all of them.
The group of criminals was caught of guard by the sudden appearence of the Punk Girl, her glare causing them to lower their guards. Timbur was than hit by green lizard's sapping attack looking a bit worse for wear as it growled looking at the Treecko before charging forward swinging it's post at the green lizard, but yelped a bit after, the impact agitating his burn.
Charlie, who'd been biding his time, throws open his own door and releases his Slowpoke, before lobbing his Pester Ball at the Pidove. "Slowpoke, use Water Gun on that one!" he points at the flying type.
The Pidove reeled from the dual assualt, looking hurt, but not yet injured it's head spinning a bit from the confusion. "Oh no Pidove...umm hang in there buddy" the meek one said at his confused pokemon.
"Urrrrgh Come on Timburr! Fight harder, knock these brat's pokemon out!" The Large Man yelled at the Fighting type.
Thinking about it for a moment, Sarah saw as the gust was launched at Treecko. The attack would probably hurt the little guy, and her legs ended up moving before she could think about what she was doing. Flinging her body in the way she shoved Treecko out of the path of the attack, and was struck by the attack herself.
"Can't have them getting to hard during the fight with the underlings" She smiled, coughing a bit as the air was knocked out of her.
Tamira watched bewildered as Sarah threw herself in between the Treecko and the Pidove, intercepting an attack that was certain to land on him. "Thank you for doing that, I guess, but you didn't need to do that. Treecko is tough," Tamira said, as Treecko nodded in agreement. "We'll make sure this ends soon. Treecko, hit him again with absorb." As Treecko attempted to finish off the wounded Pokemon, Tamira thought she would try to confuse the very meek adversary, and winked at him and blew a kiss in his direction.
The meek man blinked wildly "Umm...uhh...Thank you?" he said looking a bit disoriented by the sudden attention meanwhile the Timburr was hit hard by the absorb looking much more ragged. Though Treecko got a burst of energy afterward.
"You can do this Slowpoke, I know you can get in the action! Show them you're not as slow as they think you are and spray down that Pidove again!" The Slowpoke perks up at that, and springs waddles into action, blasting the Pidove with another wave of water.
Pidove was just able to hold on by the skin of it's beak, but the looked a lot more ragged after the attack. Meanwhile it's trainer seemed to be able to shake himself out of his flustered state. "Just...just hold on Pidove there's still a chance you could win"
The large man laughed "Haha there's a little payback for the mud in my eye" he said after seeing Sarah hit by the gust "But Pidove didn't mean to hit..." the Meek man started to say before getting shot a glare by larger man.
"Whatever, Timburr come on you're way tougher than these punks take them out!" he said before wincing a bit holding his hand
Pidove was hit by the by the burst of water falling out of the sky as Meek frowned "I give up" he said putting his hands up as the large man growled
"Coward! well I ain't giving up not after the tricks these kids pulled. I won't give up till I can't fight anymore" The large man bellowed than they could tell it was just bluster, he was barely standing up.
"Well alright, that can be arranged then," Tamira said, addressing the large man. "Treecko, take him down." She turned towards the meek man and threatened him by saying, "And you just stay put while we finish it off, and then nothing bad will happen to you, ok?"

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.

Hello anyone out there!

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...

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.
