The stunfisk stops, bending with the blow. It would grimace, and then grin brightly, electricity coursing through it's body and into Speedy like a Static shock. (Speedy is now paralyzed!)
The other stunfisk would grumble at it's backup being taken away, but would press onwards, no mere pawn was going to take down THIS king of the swimmingpool! It attempts to grind Rook back into his place again, by smereing a shot of mud against his face with a flick. Don't ask where he's getting the mud from.

The other, equally annoyed that it's movement was being stopped by this kickball, would attempt to do just that, kickball it without feet, equialling into a tackle attack

Rolling to a stop from the tackle, Speedy slowly rotates around back to the pair of Stunfisk, now being set upon by Bandit. First with the Oddish and now the Stunfisk, he's almost getting dizzy being bumped around this much. The paralysis is much more of a problem than the dizziness though, especially as he attempts to roll back to the Stunfisk that hit him to retaliate. 0uSnYP8r1d20 Paralysis check
The Stunfisk speedy hit would be taking another hit, clearly wounded by this point, retaliating by flinging some dirt, the other stunfisk shifting around to be next to it's partner and likewise continueing to fling dirt, as it had been for awhile.

Speedy barely has time to blink before being buried in a small pile of high speed dirt, the tips of his antennae poking out. "Come on, Speedy! You can't be stopped by something like getting buried, can you?" Shaking off as much of the soil as possible while rolling out at a more sluggish pace than when he had entered the battle, still covered in dirt, he aims another hit at the Stunfisk that he's been pursuing since the start of the battle.
The stunfisk would gloat over the paralyzed bug, deftly avoiding bandit's scratches, and proceeding to attempt to re-bury speedy, more shots of mud being flung. At least Speedy couldn't be slowed any further

Twitching from the shock Speedy doesn't even get to try and dodge and dodge the next hits, being promptly covered in dirt. after a few moments, the pile sags slightly as Speedy uncurls, knocked out for the second time today. Jamie sighs as she recalls Speedy. "We really need to figure you out a way to stop everyone getting ganged up on like that, huh?" Picking out a fresh ball, she sends out the Oddish she'd caught earlier, along with some words of encouragement. "Alright, I know we just met, but I need you to do your best here! Besides, you aren't gonna turn down some fresh fish, are you?" The Oddish turn back to look at Jamie questioningly, before sizing up the battlefield, taking note of the Stunfisk and the Aipom it had seen earlier at the river.
First Rook, now Speedy, on top of that, he missed; Bandit was displeased. He channeled that frustration into his claws, aiming for the eyes. Hopefully his anger wouldent cloud his accuracy. Scratch Hx_psisj1d20 AC 2
"Alright, Speedy's been bashing that one for a while!" Jamie exclaims, shaking the Oddish out of its observations. "You should be able to take it down if you give it your best!" The Oddish looks over at the Stunfisk, considering, before attempting to Absorb its remaining energy.
The stunfisk would fall flat as it's life was pulled from it's body, the fish not moving for awhile besides a shallow breathing. The trainer would return it, a slightly worried smirk still on his face. "Hah! We're hardly out for the count yet! it took you four pokemon to just take out ONE of mine!" He'd flick his wrist, and the remaining stunfisk would light up with electricity, shocking out at Bandit who'd been darting around.

As the oddish drains the stunfisk's energy, the bruise from the tackle it was hit by earlier fades away completely. Fully regenerated, at at Jamie's behest, it turns its attention to the other stunfisk, continuing to drain energy in excess.
The stunfisk intentionally doesn't avoid taking the hit, dispite it looking like it could, the trainer laughing almost manically now, the fish slipping around, and unloading the attack it'd been Bideing it's time to unleash onto bandit. He couldn't reach the oddish, thanks to it's range, to hit them both at the same time, so it settled for the annoying monkey, blasting it for 43 damage43pQgeP6P0

The fish, much like the trainer, was shocked that the monkey remained standing after the mighty blow. The fish, unlike the trainer, however, would faint soon after from furious the monkey boy, being returned promptly by the trainer, who even visibly looked defeated.
He'd scoff a little. "Perhaps. But the real question is if the number was enough to stop you from carrying on." He'd grumble, shoving his hands in his pockets, and pulling out a roll of bills, handing them each 500p

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?

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.

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?
