Donovan noticed the other two attempting to hide and shook his head...well his whole body really. Hiding from these things wouldn't get them any answers. Besides, this couldn't be real. People don't turn into Pokemon, that doesn't make sense. So, that was it. It was time to stop hiding.
With a stumbling half step, Donovan fell/rolled in front of the group of Pokemon walking up, looking at them with large and scared eyes, before stuttering out a few words "Hel...Help! I don't know where I am or how I got here" Tears began to well up in his eyes as he looked at the Fighting types
It takes the other Pokémon a moment to register that there's someone talking to them. "Huh, who's talki-" The Meditite suddenly stops talking as she sees Donovan. Her eyes widen, as she jumps back a moment screaming "Aaaah! Interloper."
"There's more of them, over there," the Pancham adds, noticing Desiree and Avani flat against the wall. "We should go get Madine..."
"Don't be silly..." huffs the Makuhita, getting into a fighting stance, towering in front of Donovan. "We can take care of them ourselves, and then tell her. That way she can deal with how they got in here."
"Fine..." The Pancham agrees. It doesn't look like any of them are very happy to see you.
Desiree's mouth falls open as Donovan picks the worst time to stop hiding. She is too taken aback to immediately follow him, but does so after a few moments, so that in case these Pokémon are hostile, Don has some backup. Unfortunately, her fears turn out to be true. As quickly as she can, she tries to cross the distance between them.

Eyes growing wider as the Fighting types began to talk, and completely ignore his plea for help, Donovan cursed quietly under his breath before rushing back towards the pillar, yelling back "Wait no, don't fight us! We just want to know what's going on!"
As he catches his breath by the pillar, he begins to focus on his newfound body, drawing in some of the ambient energy around him, his vines thickening up and his bulb growing a little in size
Avani rubbed her face as Donovan ran, or rather rolled, up to the other Pokemon. Seriously? And it hadn't helped that the group seemed hostile. She moved forward to step between him and the group, crossing her arms with a slightly upset look on her face. "Hey now, what happened to ask first, attack later?" she called out, focusing on the Makuhita as it seemed the most intent to fight.
"Ha!" The Meditite scoffs at Donovan, even as she seems to be concentrating. "A likely story." She looks at the Makuhita. "You better not be listening to their honeyed words."
The Makuhita looks a little bit guilty, but still charges towards Avani, bashing into her, and sending her skidding backwards. "I'll give you something. You almost got me. Almost." He grins. "But, that's not going to happen again. I'm not letting you past."
The Pancham scowls at Donovan, jumping after him. "Hey! Come back here, coward! You won't escape!"
Donovan bounces back a little bit, just to get out of the reach of the Pancham, before frowning a bit as it calls him a coward "I prefer self preservationist, though I'm sure that words a bit too big for you to understand." He narrows his eyes and unleashes a few tendrils of green light at the Fighting type, just as he had ordered Rose to do time and time again "Allow me to speak in a language you might understand instead" He says as the vines strike the opposing Pokemon
Avani huffed as she was shoved back from the force, a somewhat angered expression crossing her face. She was tired of being pushed around. First that weird woman steals the professor and hurts her Ollie and now this? Her little hands clenched a bit as she scooted along side Donovan a moment to be beside the Pancham. She took a small inhale before bringing her fist down, attempting to pound it against the smaller pokemon in frustration.
Desiree was taking the hostility towards them rather personally. Sure she had feared they wouldn't be friendly, but that doesn't mean they couldn't have turned out to be otherwise. She fumes as they attack her friends. "Calling us interlopers, calling us cowards, attacking us as if we did something to deserve it... Just who the hell do you think we are?!" And with that she charges at the Meditite, the Pokemon she perceives to be their leader. looking mightily furious. She rams into the Pokemon.
Unfortunately for Desiree, she never gets an answer, as her attack knocks the Meditite to the ground, unmoving. "Rala!" cries the Makuhita, even as the Pancham gets struck by Avani and Donovan.
The Pancham slides past Avani in order to punch Donovan back, while the Makuhita angrily smashes into Avani, throwing her further towards the doorway the other Pokémon entered. "If you wanted self-preservation, you'd never have entered here."
Avani huffed once more as she was forced back, fire burning in her eyes as she stared at the pair. "We don't even know what HERE is!" she snapped, gaze flicking to Donovan. "C'mon, we can handle these jerks!" she called at him before looking back to the aggressive two.
Desiree blinks for a moment as she seems to have knocked the Meditite out. Maybe I was a little excessive... She turns to see the two other Fighting-types strike her friends and all idea of 'excessive' go flying out of her head, as she rushes over and slams into the nearest target, which turns out to be the Makuhita.
As Donovan slid back, he winced slightly as the strike before skidding into place and smirking as Avani cheered him on "I mean if that's the best this guy has, then yeah" He punctuates his words with another round of vines, this time an extra one coming forth and striking the Pancham as well "We won't have any problems taking them down"
The Makuhita barely grunts as Desiree pushes him backwards. But the confident look falls off his face as the Pancham falls to the ground, limp. With that, he turns towards the largest corridor, and begins running towards it as fast as he can manage. "Madine! Help! Someone, anyone! There are intruders!"
"Oh no you don't," Desiree growls. Then she growls, literally and speeds forwards in pursuit. She finds herself enjoying the rush of the chase more than she probably should. Quickly she comes to a halt in front of the Makuhita and lashes out with a claw using the remaining momentum.
Donovan's eyes grew wide as he was literally swept off his feet, though he kept his mouth shut, knowing it would be too much for him to try and keep up with his newly stubby legs. Instead he puffed himself up a little bigger, his bulb growing once more
Avani panted a bit as she toddled along, keeping Donovan in her hands as she sprinted forward. She watched Desiree get a swipe though she looked forward once again before she could see if another one hit; trying to cut off the Makuhita though he was too quick for her as they sprinted on ahead.
Desiree's claws bounced off the first time, but managed to find purchase when the Makuhita continued to flee. Almost gleefully, Desiree resumed the chase, sprinting until she reached the Makuhita once more.

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.
