Nester gives a small frown at Corbett's description of his shot "The problem with that angle is that one bad factor and every field group in a good half kilo will ninety degree and bail. Growlithe's ain't the only ones with sharp noses."
"I'm thinking of it for emergencies, all the better if things out there run away. If fang is trained to follow it, it could help to regroup should we get separated. You do bring up a good point though, the possibility of a tracing something nasty." Pondering for a moment, "I figure I could be cautious with it, for example climb a tree and break the pellet 30ft away while keeping an eye on the spot."
Nester turns to Corbett "Nah, the higher functions want miss firebrand here gesturing to Vicki to CO for this little group. Think of me as the XO. I'm here not just to compete but make sure we don't go full obtuse.
"Computer, can you give me any information on the gym leader's battle style?"
Receiving the question, the AI took on a different expression, the avatar updating accordingly. It seemed smug somehow. As it was about to reply though, Vicky's question came in, causing it to pause a moment.
"What's the best place to catch Pokemon near here?"
"I was talking to the computer first . . ."
As the group of Trainers conversed and showed off their Pokemon and items to each other, the avatar changed to an exasperated pose. When they were finished conversing, the AI spoke.
"Gym Leader's battle style? I can help there, certainly! The Gym Leader of Boardwalk Resort uses Water-type Pokemon, and prefers all out assault strategies. The battlefield is the actual Water Park, so expect her to know how to use the many slides and fountains to her advantage."
Changing the pose again to a contemplative one, it continued. "As for catching Wild Pokemon, anywhere nearby is fine, Trainers. Fishing rods can be rented by the beach. I'd recommend it, like, a 50 Poke deposit lets you fish as long as you want, with the deposit returned to you when you return the rod. It's a good deal. You can also try the local pathways leading to the nearby reserves. While they do require a paid ticket to enter, they do let you catch all the Pokemon you want. You have to use the Poke Balls they provide, and you'll only get 10 of them, so be very selective about what you want to get."
"I'll be ready in a few, while you figure out the best route to the reserves, i want to spend some time with Faulkner."
Arnold unclips a pokeball from his belt and summons a Ponyta before him, "Hiya honey," he pets his friend in greeting, "Faulkner, I learned something I think you'd find helpful, let me show you."
Pulling out his notebook, Arnie flips to one of the Litwick pages, specifically Fire Spin. Showing it to his ponyta, he begins to mimic the motions in the drawing, as well as speaking to his friend emphatically. Faulkner stamps its hooves, and moves about spouting gouts of flames. After a bit of this, Ponyta successfully uses a Fire Spin.
Arnie activates his Daily usage of Archive Tutor to teach Ponyta Fire Spin.
"I've my own rod for fishing, so if you guys are headed for the routes then I'll try my luck in the rivers around there." Nester chimes in his two cents. "If you need me to I'm also a pretty decent DI if you want a mon of yours to be run though accuracy or speed drills while I fish."
"DIs, hard slang for drill instructors. Think of them as personal trainers for the pokemon ranger corps." Nester replies. "To maxmize training effectiveness we should at least figure out how many mon we have between us all so we can set a training rotation." Nester says as he unclips two balls from his belt. "I've two but one's a baby and she's not fighting anything more threatening then a paper bag til she grows more."
Seeing that Ponta has got a grip of the Fire Spin, Arnie stands full upright, tucks his notebook away (snapping the pocket securely), and dusting of his hands. As he rose his necklace dangled, remembering Candle's Trick manuver, he tucked that in too. "Your right, it's seems full intoductions are in order."
Pulling out three more pokeballs, Arnie became fairly formal, "You've already met Faulkner, my Ponyta, she's been with me a long time," summoning the next in line a Froakie appeared.
"This is Frost," indicating Froakie, "she would be considered my most to be my official starter."
Another toss of a pokeball and an Abra began to float above the ground, "next up is Salinger, I got lucky meeting her."
"Rounding things out, I introduce you to the newest member of my team," the last pokeball takes to the air, releasinga Gastly, "this is Kafka, he just hatched."
The four pokemon stood in a propper line for only a moment, untill Kafka began to float off, circling the others weaving about. This caused Arnold to lose a bit of composure, scrabbling for a pokeball. "Sorry, he tends to wander," recalling Gastly, he smiles, "that's my team!"
Corbett ignores Arnold, as he is still saluting vicki

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.

Hello anyone out there!

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...
May 14, 2020 2:56:43 GMT
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.
