Raven has had an interesting morning. She was awoke from her sleep to the sound of a hijacking in progress. Which was luckily put down quickly enough that she wasn't late to arrive in Gildarie. However after the boat had docked she was taken with the rest of the passengers to give statements on what had occurred.
Afterward the officers were kind enough to point her in the direction of Prof.Seedlings lab, where her first Pokemon is waiting.
Raven was trembling with excitement. This was it. The day she'd been waiting for longer than she could remember. Even better, her mom and dad were back home, and she was here, countless miles away. She had this moment all to herself, and she could make what she wanted of it. She could just imagine the pokemon waiting for trainers, hoping to be partnered with someone kind and strong and fun, like her. She refused to make hers wait any longer than she had to. Unable to contain herself, she burst into a full speed run, quickly running out of breath, only then deciding walking was probably sufficient.
Raven was wearing calf-length black cargo shorts, and a light teal full-sleeve t-shirt. The only part of her outfit that wasn't pretty much brand new was her very worn sneakers. Her parents had done their very best to convince her to use new shoes for the past year, but she didn't want to let them go yet. These were the shoes that had taken her on every little trip her mum and dad didn't know about. They deserved to be on her feet when she finally started her journey.
Raven is easily able to find the lab with the officer's directions though it was a bit of a walk from the police station. The lab's outside looked a bit drab, but the sign out front clearly marked it as Prof. Seedling's lab, though it looked like another name had been there before, but was painted over.
"Why yes I am, Raven Carter's the name. Were you preparing a speech just now? I'd love to hear it. We should probably do this properly. I only get to start my journey once, right? Although I really want to get started soon. Maybe you could give me the short version? Sorry, that was rude. And I'm rambling. I'll just sit here, give me as long a speech as you want."
Raven says all that in approximately five seconds, then takes a seat at the nearest convenient location (not necessarily a chair).
"Oh Raven Carter from..." he said quickly checking a paper "Johto, and of course I can do the speech properly I've been preparing it for you new trainers." he said smiling as he cleared his throat.
"Hello there, Welcome to Gildarie, and Thank you for applying to be a trainer in our Region" he said smiling bowing a bit "Thank you for aiding us in our time of need. As you have likely seen when arriving, we don't get many visitors to Gildarie, Since we've fallen out of favor with the rest of the world, but I believe with the help of trainer's like you we can prove Gildarie is ready to re-enter the league" he said smiling.
"And for you, Welcome to the world of pokemon training, as you know we live side by side with creatures called Pocket Monsters also known as Pokemon. Some people keep Pokemon as pets while others, like yourself, train them for battle. Today you will be starting on a journey that I hope you will never forget. And if you ever stumble do not worry, me and the Gildarie League will be here to support you" he said smiling.
"Now please come choose your starter. I apologize the selection is a bit smaller but a few other applicants got to them first" he said opening a case with 3 pokeballs the names on them said 'Torchic' 'Shuppet' and 'Meditite'
Raven had to think this through, this would shape her journey considerably. However, after a moment she settled on the Meditite, releasing it immediately. Despite having done her best to prepare for this moment she was nervous to meet her first own pokemon.
Meditite popped out of his ball looking around. Before looking at Raven eyeing her a bit before nodding seeming to accept her.
"Seems like he likes you. Now there's a few other things I need to give you." he said showing her the Pokedex,P*DA and Heal Ticket, explaining them to her, in the same way he'd explained it to Charlie, Sarah and Tamira.
"Now do you have any other questions for me?" he asked.
Raven nods to the meditite in kind. "Just two. Anything specific about this meditite I need to know? And do you have any suggestions where I could find some pokemon to catch? Oh, and of course where's the nearest Gym?"
"Hmm on this Meditite in paticular, well Meditie is an urban pokemon so it doesn't have many Nature capabilities usually living near cities."
"This Meditite has it standard moves of Bide,Detect,Meditate, Confusion and endure, and Special to this Meditite, is the move Bullet Bunch it inherited from it's parent." he said smiling
"They say Meditite can enhance it's inner energy through Meditate, and can even live on 1 berry a day because of that. Using the minimal eating as training" he said but didn't look sure if it was true.
"As for places to catch pokemon, there's here" he said showing her the same spots as he showed the others.
"And the closest Gym would likely be Roses, which is the Normal Gym" he said smiling showing her how to find these places with her map..
"Thanks. I'll probably head for the central park. If there's nothing else, I'll need a moment with my new friend."
Not waiting for an answer, Raven sits on the floor so she's facing Meditite directly.
"Bullet Punch huh? We'll make good use of that. I'm Raven, and I'm going to call you... hmm... how about Teppo? It doesn't really mean anything, but we'll train hard, and battle well. When we're finished, 'Teppo' will mean 'super strong awesome pokémon'. So Teppo, you ready to win?"
The park was large, taking up about a city block, it had a large pond in the center various trees and flowers dotted around it. Near the pond was a large white stone that stood out among the various blues and greens that surrounded it.
One section was roped off the grass in that area much taller than the rest of the park.

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.
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.
