"Heh you're probably the first, No problem kid" he said leaning on the wall as she passed.
Through the door was another set of steps that took Tamira deeper undeground as she came out to a barely lit stadium, a standard sized battlefield in the middle, the stands empty. On the far end of the field a young woman with purple hair with two spiral ponytails, her outfit similar to Tamira's as she looked a bit bored, standing next to her was a young punk with sunglasses
"I don't get why I have to sit here, all day. Even if the new trainers are arriving today there's no way they're picking me for their first gym over the Pink Princess" the woman said as the punk noticed Tamira
"Hey boss look!" he said pointing toward Tamira as the young woman stood up quickly grabbing her pokeball "Hey what are you doing down here I thought I told you guys, the gym is for..." she said getting cut off by a beep as she pulled a purple P*DA from her pocket looking at it,before looking very embarrassed.
"Ohh a challenger...How are you doing?" she asked walking forward onto the field the punk heading for the center line.
"I'm doing pretty well," Tamira said, looking up and down at the gym leader. Tamira was surprised at the looks of the gym leader. She had heard the name Violent Violet and had expected a very rough looking, older lady, but instead she was treated to a punk. However, Tamira was not going to let her guard down, as she was probably in charge for a reason.
"And as to the reason they're choosing the other gym, it probably has something to do with the fact that you hid your gym in an undisclosed location in the middle of the slums. I only found this place by interrogating one of your employees. People don't want to work hard to find a gym, they work hard to beat it."
"Well up until Bast asked me to be a Gym Leader this was just my base, It's not like I wanted the punks or Team Anarchy to know where it was, plus it's not like I could have offered the Coordinator's anything. Though Ricky should have just lead you here." she said looking thoughtful
"He didn't ask for cash or anything right?" she asked looking at her
"Little brat...probably didn't even know you were a trainer until you showed him the licence" she said looking angry but took a breath sighing "But that's for a talk with him later" she said.
"As to why I used picked here, Well the battle field was already here, so it meant the League didn't need to spend the money to build another gym, plus until now it didn't really get in the way. Your the first challenger who's come looking" she said looking over at Tamira.
"Straight to the point, I like that. Let's start. Robbie you know what to do" she said looking at the sunglasses punk who nodded grabbing a microphone hanging from the cieling "Welcome to Bishar gym, today's challenge will be between the Baroness of the Backstreets Violet, and the challenger Tamira" he said to the empty stadium
"The rules for this challenge are simple Violet is allowed to use 2 pokemon, while the challenger is allowed to use up to 6 pokemon. The battle will be decided when either side is out of usable pokemon, Now, Let's get ready to battle" he said as Violet started
"I'll go first let you pick a pokemon based on my own, Go Shade" she said throwing out a pokeball as an Umbreon hopped out with a cry.
As the dust flew into Cottonee's eyes, Tamira frowned. She wanted to end this quicker, but attacking blind wasn't the best plan. Instead, she decided to bolster Cottonee's strength. "Cottonee, use growth!"
Seeing that the Pokemon was about ready to give out, Tamira decided she would make Cottonee stronger before the next attack, and would let leech seed apply the finishing blow. "Cottonee don't bother attacking. Use growth on yourself instead."

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.
