Sarah thought about it, but then shook her head. "No, I don't need a Flabebe. I just caught a Cottonee. Besides, Flabebe isn't even grass type, despite the fact that it is holding a flower. And I don't particularly want a Poochyena either. Do you want to continue on?"
Sarah sighed. I guess we are not going to have us much luck here anymore, are we? Just general mook Pokemon are left here. But we didn't do to bad, I caught a Cottonee, and you man. she said, giving Charlie a gentle shove on the shoulder. "You caught a Larvesta. Those things are so powerful when you level them up, nice job man."
Charlie grins and blushes a little at the shove, before nodding. "Yeah. Maybe we should try the arena next? Might have better luck there, and it means we'll have two mon that can take on either one of the gym types at-hand."
"Eh, you can go there if you want. Me personally, I was only looking for grass-type Pokemon, and they are exclusive to this area in particular. I am going to go back to the town, heal up, and try to take on the Dark-type gym leader." Tamira turned to leave, beckoning Treecko to follow her.
Before the 2 trainers could leave something came flying past them, when they looked where it landed they saw it was the Weedle that had been stalking the Seedot, Standing by the tree was a Nuzleaf who glared at the 2 trainers who had been watching the scene unfold.
As the Weedle fell dead in front of Tamira, she jolted slightly. It wasn't the fact that a Pokemon had been killed that alarmed her, but the speed in which it was done. Clearly this Nuzleaf wasn't messing around. "Well I don't think this one is going to let us go. Get ready Treecko, this one is going to be tough"
"Larvesta, go after that Seedot, don't give it a chance to set up its defenses! Leech Life!" The little bug obeys, barreling forward with a blast of fire from its horns, slamming probiscus first into the grass-type.
Seedot was hit again as it reeled falling over unconcious, looking even more injured than before.
Nuzleaf turned looking at the fallen pokemon than growled eyes focused on Larvesta as it seemed to glow for a moment before holding out it's hands blasting out a sphere of green energy at the fire bug.
Tamira saw that the Seedot was knocked unconscious and knew now that she could focus complete attention on to the Nuzleaf. But this brought up a question in her head. Do I want a Nuzleaf? Specifically, do I want this Nuzleaf? While having a pretty strong Pokemon to start would be nice, she wasn't so sure she wanted to mess with this one personally, given it's clearly strong personality. She then thought to herself, What the hell. I'll throw a Pokeball. If the first one doesn't work I'll be on my way. "Treecko, hit him again with pound," she said, priming a Pokeball. As Treecko slammed into Nuzleaf, Tamira threw the ball at it.
Treecko's attack was able to hit the Nuzleaf wounding it slightly, however this turned it's attention back to Treecko and Tamira briefly allowing it to side step the pokeball she threw.

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...

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.
