Sibyl clicks her tongue yet again as the Psywave sails across wide across Chouette. Not quite the outcome she was looking for, Chouette didn't even get her proverbial collar felt. Nevertheless, her energy falters only slightly, as she shouts out with just as much vigour, "Go on, just hit 'em back!" It was disappointing Miri's best attack wasn't available for this though. Although she's waiting for the right opportunity...

Chouette certainly felt that one, even if it wasn't as dangerously close to one-shotting as Kat and Oscar's Pokémon had come. Isabella frowns - Miri being reduced to a no-frills slapfight might not actually be ideal considering how well Chouette can take a physical hit (not very), but it's not like either of them is spoiled for choice.
"Come on, Chouette, you've got this! Peck her!" Foresight took a lot out of Chouette - better to save it for if they desperately needed the breathing room Tackle would provide.
Sibyl is likewise not too keen on the slugfest either - Miri's ability to take physical hits is also not that great, and has reduced to only one option at this point. If only there was more to do!
Fortunately, Miri's ready for the next attack, deftly swooping away and looping back in a swift motion. In any case, there isn't much else to do other than to urge Miri on and hope for the best. "Go on, just keep at it!"

Isabella bites her lip as she tries to calculate. Chouette's got access to more useful attacks than Miri at this point, but Miri is clearly physically stronger. Chouette's lagging already - that last attack got her well enough that she's holding her leg funny.
No point holding a trump card back. "Don't give up, Chouette! Hypnosis!" Chouette does her best to fix her eyes on the darting Misdreavus, trying to catch her in the trance that snared Paddy.
Sibyl takes a sharp intake of breath. Such a disability could turn the tide of battle. She holds her breath as Chouette tries to lull Miri, awaiting the result...
She exhales with relief as Miri stay focused and calm, keeping her eyes open and staying in the fight. Sibyl pumps her fist: this chance could very well be what they need. "Nice one, but stay focused, its not over!"

"Oh, zut." She'd been kind of counting on that Hypnosis to hit and get her some breathing space. She's rather out of options now, especially after another hit left Chouette in obvious bad shape.
"We're not out yet! Get her with your Foresight again, Chouette!" The red glow sweeps out from Chouette's eyes again, zeroing in on her elusive opponent. "Now Tackle!" Chouette throws herself full force at Miri. That should at least do some damage, if it connects.
"Now pull back! Try and keep out of range!" If the move knocks Miri out of position and Chouette can outdistance her, maybe they can stay in this another round. Chouette retreats hastily, hoping Miri can't quite catch up. Now if they can just get a decisive blow in on the next round...
Sibyl back off a little bit to avoid Miri crashing into her as Chouette rams into Miri with such force that it sent her flying, flipping over around in the air. Kind of weird to be worried about a ghost crashing into her, when she thought about it. She sees Chouette rapidly backing away, and acts fast, smelling the proverbial blood in the air. "Chase her down Miri! You can do it!", hoping she'll make it. Miri speeds across the air, reaching Chouette before she could attack back, then taking a dive at Chouette.

And that, as they say, is that. Isabella's gamble doesn't pay off - Miri catches up to Chouette, and the poor Hoothoot was already on her last wings. She goes down; Isabella winces when she hits the ground, then recalls her with a sigh. "You win. Good match. Thought I had you for a minute there."
She hooks the Pokéball back onto her belt and turns to head back toward the nurse from the Pokémon Center again. "Just not my day, I guess."
Sibyl punches the air as Miri lands the final blow. She runs up to Miri after Chouette is called back, who turns back to meet her too. Sibyl hugs Miri, saying enthusiastically, "Good job, you so did well!" She then faces Isabella, with a sympathetic smile. "Don't feel too bad; like you said, you nearly got us quite a few times. It was a close fought battle," nodding slightly, as though in agreement with herself.
She calls Miri back into the Pokeball and catches up with Isabella to head off to the Pokemon Center as well..

Isabella smiles weakly. "Thanks. Sorry, it's just... coming here's basically been one ego smash after another. First there was the andouille with his stupid cheating smuggled Pokémon, then this tournament. I would've been flattened in the first round if Kat had actually entered with two Pokémon. And I'm not really sure what I can fix about it..."

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.

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.
