Koko smiled nodding, glad Sarah recognized her strength as she went over to easily picking up the Poochyena,giving a smirk to the pruple balloon, who angrily inflated looking at Sarah wondering if there was something else she could do to show up Koko.
Koko seemed to ignore her taking the Poochyena over to the bush putting it with the others.
Tamira finished up wrapping the Cottonee and picked it up to carry with her with ease, the Pokemon being very light. She wanted to keep it out of the ball until it healed up a little more. "Alright, I'm ready to go. Let's get going."
After a bit more walking the group was able to spot why the Groostasie was called the Grand Train Station, in the center of the city was a large hub, multiple train lines running into it, many people filing in and out of the station as multiple passenger and freight trains rolled into the station. The rest of the city seemed to grow out from it, Route A emptying out onto a street that headed straight to the hub.
The main street seemed to be catered to visitors the Pokecenter and Pokemart right outside the station across from each other. The rest of the street was home to hotels and shops detailed around travelers most of the shops selling things like maps and train schedules. (Perception 8)
Following the young people Sarah comes across a large group of youths congregated around two train crossings, one with a battleground crudely drawn in chalk running parallel to the tracks, at the other tracks is a battle ground drawn running across the crossing. 4 young people with pokeballs stood at the battle grounds all the youths seemed to be waiting for something.
Suddenly Sarah heard a bell ringings as the guards came down at the crossings, 2 trains coming out of the hubs.
On the battleground running parallel the youths started battling as soon as a passenger train started going past, one managing to score a knock out on the other. The other youth sent out another pokemon, but as soon as the train had passed a third youth stepped in calling the battle for the youth who scored the knockout.
One the battleground running across the crossing a long freight train came through, with gaps between cars. The trainers telling their pokemon to up their status while their were train cars between them and their opponents, Than attacking each other with ranged moves when a gap appeared.
A slightly large group of spectators gathered by each battleground watching the fights.
As they walked into town, Tamira looked around at the town. There was a lot of train centers, the city really living up to its reputation. She turned and looked for the center and mart, and then turned back to find that Sarah had already booked it. Again, really? Are you serious Sarah? Tamira sighed. She didn't think Sarah could sit still for more than 30 minutes. Tamira turned to Raven and asked, "do you want to follow Sarah, or do you want to go to the center and mart? Maybe look for Pokemon?"
The person turned to her "Oh sure anybody can battle if they want and have the Pokemon, But you need at least 2 Pokemon for the Passenger Line, and you can't use physical fighters on the Freight Line, it would be unsafe." she said pointing to the respective battle fields as she explained.
"Oh sorry right you're not from around here, so you probably wouldn't know. It's the kind of trains that go through the crossing. Passenger line, is for a passenger train where people ride to get around. While the Freight Line, is for a Freight Train, they take goods and materials places. A Passenger train is usually shorter, while a freight train can be pretty long." she explained.
"The Passenger Line, is the horizontal field. Essentially the two challengers wait until a passenger train is coming through, and they fight until it's passed. The winner is whoever has the most Pokemon still standing." she explained pointing to the parallel field
"The Freight Line, is the vertical field going across the crossing, Basically you lob attacks at each other when a gap in the train cars comes up and prepare while there's cars in the way. It goes until one side is out of pokemon" she explained pointing to the field going across the crossing.
Tamira and Raven arrived at the train yard just in time to see Sarah walking away from a group of people.
When Sarah checked Groostasie's entry in her map it highlighted a few areas where people should avoid without Pokemon. First was the power tunnels underneath the station that helped power it which attracted electric types, second was the routes that surrounded the town and the last was the loading area home to many steel, and a few urban pokemon.

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.

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.
