The meek one's face went White "Oh screw this I'm not dying for Mike, He's got two Porygon. The blocky one you trapped in there he sent around the ship with us, but his other one will be with him in the control room. It's up at the top of the ship. Except the other Porygon is different, smoother and definitely stronger. It's what he used to stop the whole ship. He upgraded it with some weird software calls it Porygon 2. But that's it, that's all I know. Now please don't throw me Pidove or Timburr overboard" he said looking at her on the verge of tears noticibly leaving out the large man.
"Oh yes quite fascinating creatures. Porygon's were the first purposely man made pokemon. Porygon2 is it's evolution, Their greatest ability is known as Wired, It allows them to enter most kinds of machinery. Which is likely how these ruffians gained control of this ship" he said looking at the two bound men.
"As for it's moves, Without knowing the pokemon's power I couldn't tell you for sure most of it's move, However it will likely have the move Conversion or Conversion 2. Which allows it to change it's Typing. Most of the time it's a Normal type however."
"If it's evolved to Porygon 2. Your enemy will be at least as strong as your starters. However I would prepare for a tough fight since 2nd stage pokemon are stronger than 1st stage pokemon" he explained.
"I wish I could be more helpful" he said feeling like he was sending them in unprepared.
"So before we head out, what is the plan here? How are we going to approach him? Are we going to try and sneak in, or are we going to just waltz in and take him down. Because either one works for me, to be honest. And before you ask, Sarah, no, you may not try your fishing pole thing again." Tamira said, very sternly. She still couldn't believe it worked, but she didn't think it would ever work again.
Sarah thought about it for a moment, "Not at the moment no, The dumb one already out. I was thinking of trying to manipulate the typing of the Porygon by throwing this net on it, and setting it on fire, but I think that might hurt the pokemon to much, even if it does change types."
Charlie shrugs. "If he's got another Porygon watching the systems, trying to sneak past all the cameras is probably a bad idea. We have to be lucky every time, he has to be lucky once. Better to just bumrush him I think."
The three of you are easily able to find your way upstairs to the control room. Inside a man with thin glasses and scruffy hair, wearing a sailor suit was looking over the controls "Urgh where are those 2? It shouldn't be taking them this wrong to just search all the rooms. Well even if they can't find him Porygon will let us know when he tries to call for help. Now keep working on disabling the boat, once we've got what we need, we should be able to just swim it to shore" he said seeming to be talking to the control console itself.
Following Sarah's message all the lights in the hallway went off the control room starting to quickly wind down as there was a flash of light from the console as suddenly a Red and Blue creature with a smooth body and what appeared to be a beak was now floating above the man's head
"What the heck just happened? Get back into the machine" he said checking the console "Why is all the machinery off? There's no reason for them to turn off the ship unless...Damn it I know I shouldn't have brought them into this, Rob is dumb as a post and Cyril is such a scaredy cat, he probably told them about you the minute they threatened to bend his arm, I should have asked my other friends" he said the blue and red creature making a few beeps and boops.
"I do too have other friends" he snapped at the creature who seemed to laugh
She placed Zuzu on the ground quietly, and pulled out her notebook.
Watching with a careful eye Sarah jotted down a couple quick notes on the Porygon 2, noting it's exit from the computer, and it's different shape than the other porygon that she knew. Then placed it back in her pocket.
With a whisper she said to the others, "get him now. Zuzu, Mud bomb."
With the net in her hands she flung it across the room aiming to get it on the Porygon 2, while Zuzu shot a ball of mud across the room onto the now smoothly edged pokemon.
The net and mud hit it's target dead on as it was dragged to the floor before getting covered in mud. "What the he...Who's out there!" he called out looking into the hall seeing Sarah and Mudkip "Who are you? There aren't supposed to be any trainers on this ship" he said looking at her
(Tamira and Charlie roll stealth, Failed)
"Hey and who are you two out in the hall way?" he said noticing Tamira and Charlie out in the darkened hallway.
Charlie releases Slowpoke into the mix, before palming another Pester Ball and attempting to smash it into the Porygon's beak. He's not here to talk with someone that was willing to strand an entire boatload of people. The Slowpoke quickly follows suite with a water gun to the same target.

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.
