Tamira sighed to herself. She didn't particularly enjoy doing this everytime, but it was useful, so she swallowed her pride and blew a kiss in the direction of Mike, in hopes that he would become confused.
Mike was obviously flustered by Tamira's actions looking a little disoriented "Umm..that...uh, That doesn't answer who you are" he said as suddenly a pesterball and burst of water shot first, both hitting the trapped Porygon2 the water seeming to injure it slightly, seeing his Pokemon get hit quickly snapped Mike out of his flustered state.
"Hang in there, Porygon2 we've gotten this far I know we can finish the job" he said trying to raise the pokemon's spirits
The Leech Seeds latched onto Porygon2, quickly draining it of energy. It attempted to make a an attack against the group but in it's muddled state it knocked it's head into the net hurting it even more.
All of a sudden, a light-bulb went off in Tamira's mind. She had been worrying about type conversion from the Porygon2 when she never really need to. All she needed to do was get the Pokemon angry. And for her, that shouldn't be too hard. "Oh, you're still stuck in that net. How unfortunate. Tell me, how does it feel to be a failure to your master?"
Looking at the battle paying careful attention to what was going on Sarah took notes on how Zuzu charged in and used tackle, as well as how Tamira's Treecko used Leech seed attaching it's self onto the opponent.
Mike was able to jump over Charlie's foot but when he reached the door he was stopped by Tamira, than had his legs pulled out from under him by Sarah's rope "Dang it, I was so close if I had just gotten that equipment from Prof.Seedling I would have been made a full member" Mike said sounding angry and dissapointed as Sarah got a message "How are things up there? Some help is on the way I found some people locked down in the engine room" he said as the 3 young trainers heard footsteps in the hallways.
A man in a captains outfit followed by 2 sailors walked up to them.
"Hello there, I'm Captain Skua, I was told by the jittery man who freed me, there were some trainers up here taking care of the scoundrel who took over my boat"
Charlie nods happily. "Yes sir, we all helped to take him and his mon out. There's a Porygon trapped in a computer in our cabin still though, someone might want to get it." He bends down to scratch Slowpoke's ears. "Great job Speedy!"
The Captain nodded "I'll let my men know to hand that PC over to the Police as well. I already have a couple men collecting this scallywags co-conspirators. They're quite bold I'll give them that, signed up for my crew a month back and than today they tricked the rest of us down into the engine by saying there was some catastrophic problem. I'm a bit embarrassed that we fell for it" he said scratching his head.
"It's a good thing you 3 were here, my men and I are the only ones with battle ready pokemon on this ship. If you hadn't been here to stop these 3, they likely would have been long gone before we escaped the engine room, with the Professor's, and who knows how many other passengers, possessions. As for where we are looks like we're not too far off course. We should be reaching the mainland more or less on schedule" he said looking over to Sarah
"Now for protecting my ship I think you three earned a reward. Here" he said handing each of them 500 pyen "I know it's not much, but I hope it's enough to reimburse you for what you used to stop these hooligans" he said
She smiled, "Well then, you guys have it handled."
She walked past the man, and started for the front of the ship, she wanted to see how the world looked up there.

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?

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.

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.
