Excited things went so well, Orin called out Azurill, offering to carry it for a time as he stood up. "Welcome aboard! It's nice to meet you, I'm Orin."
Turning to Bandit, "thanks for the help, you've been great today! rest up now; might be a gym appearance in your near future." Bandit looked a Orin sideways, "I didn't forget, I owe you a treat, you deserve it." Orin grinned and Bandit returned to his ball.
"Ok, what say we head back Jamie? Did you still want to pop into that alcove you spotted?"
Jamie waves at the Azurill, before picking up her rod and putting it in her pack, the top half sticking out. "I'd love to check it out now, but I'm kinda low on Pokemon and you should probably get back to town to see the nurse. We can always come back later though, the day won't be over when we beat the gym!"
Orin would not object to heading back, as the two would do so. Abashed, he would admit, "this isn't something I'm accustomed to dealing with..." gazing ground ward, "my mom normally treated these things."
Growing up with enough to get by, money was only afforded to medical situations deemed extreme by Mom.
"Well it's a good thing that Pokemon centers always got space for trainers, huh? Getting money from gyms, free medical care, being a trainer's got some serious perks." Jamie keeps walking for a moment, then starts talking again. "Speaking of the gym, you got any plans for it? If the gym leader actually has water types, I think Tympole will be able to do some solid damage and I got a plan to deal with Sandstorm too, if you're using Rook."
"We are both back to, 'strapped for cash', otherwise I'd offer to make youh a pair of Safety Goggles, but I don`t have what I need. The offer still stands for whenever. Azurill here might not be ready for a gym, but the rest can fight, I guess it depends on what we face."
Azurill nestled happily against Orin's bare chest, the fact that both were still wet prevented any discomfort. "I don't even know if the gym leader is up next. So far we encountered electric and grass types, so I guess anything could still be waiting. There is also the option of headed down the other path; more prize money, more training..."
"True, but no sense in tiring out our Pokemon even more before the gym leader, right? We can train more once we get the badge, but now we still have that day time limit over us, and I really don't feel like fighting those Tympole again."
The nurse would give them the pokemon, and, after a bit of needlework, Orin would noloner be paralysed, the nurse scolding him softly while she cured him about being more careful, and how he might not be so lucky next time!
Jamie averts her eyes from nurse joy helping Jamie out, pointedly not looking at the needles and instead sitting on the couch and relaxing for the duration of the healing occasionally opening an eye to check if the nurse is done yet. When Orin calls out to her, she stands up, stretching. "Sure am! Just let me get the team together" she says, heading over to the nurse's desk to collect the recently restored. "Thanks again, Nurse."
She'd do the little curtsy, and wish them the best of luck. Headding down the road, and back into the gym, going along the way they had before, they'd almost be at the gym leader, merely a single trainer, blond-haired, would stand in the way. "Back after healing, I see! Hah! Well, if you needed to recover to get this far, you won't stand a chance against mot- The gym leader!" He'd hastily correct himself, striking a pose.
Jamie's hand was already reaching towards Tympole's ball, but seeing the stunfisk, she answers Orin's question by quickly moving to Speedy's ball and releasing the freshly rejuvenated insect onto the battlefield. "Alright Speedy, another double battle, so defense comes first!" Taking the cue, Speedy quickly curls up into a ball once again, angling himself to still keep an eye on the opponents.
The battle is on now, still fearful of ground moves, Orin ordered Rook in regardless. "Those things are going to pack a punch, so brace yourself. Swing around to the right and Fury Cutter, don't let them see your back side."
Orin as having him go in, but wanted to prevent granting them flanking if possible.
The stunfisk would limberly evade the swipes, twisting between them and getting up in Rook's face. It'd look the dark/steel fighter in the eyes, before ducking down, it's other side flipping up and attempting to get a shot of mud right to the head.
o8bTsj4t1d20 AC3, special, crits on 19-20 2d8+21 Ground type if hits, rook speed is slowed by 1 cs
The other, seeing the agressive fighter getting all up in it's friend's grill, would move to flank, though thanks to rook's positioning, would only be able to start moving around, not entirely make it there, loosing a thundershock at Rook. (Still not flanking due to the angle) 1d20 AC2, special, crits on 19-20, paralysis on 16+ 2d6+22 electric 2d6+8 crit damage 1d20·2d8+21·1d20·2d6+22·2d6+8
Looking at the Stunfisk moving, Jamie sees the second one attempting to flank Rook. "Speedy, take on that one before rook has to deal with them both!" Pointing at the offending fish, speedy rolls into action, moving towards the Stunfisk with more intent in his roll than the last times, having gotten more used to attacking while balled up.

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.

How does this site work?

Post on the Game Masters Seeking Players page. There are plenty examples there to go off of.
