Orin heads out to the pokemon center, dropping off Rook, then handing over Bandit in his pokeball, "I don't know what standard procedure is for you, but he's in a mood, so best not let him out. Thank you."
After that, he would hed off to the mart to pick up a bite to tide him over untill dinner. Just a single hot dog and a snack bag of spicy chips. Nothing to heavy to bog him down, but enough to keep his energy up for the battle to come.
Jamie follows Orin to the pokecenter to drop off Speedy and Shapiro, but goes out a different way from Orin, heading over to the edge of town. As much as she'd love a nice premade lunch, she's still on a budget, not to mention more concerned about her Pokemon for the upcoming battle. Though there weren't any berries on the way to town, Jamie's still hopeful that she'll find some for her pokemon (and maybe one or two for herself).
tH5Xh1IB4d6+1 survival, +2 from survivalist if the berries are in the woods? I think? 4d6+1
Orin found a quite place outside to eat. Once settled, he called out Blitzle, Trubbish and Azurill to let them play and get to know one another. After eating he took out his craft kit and began to tinker, enjoying the sunlight.
The forest, especially this close to town, had very few berries available. Luckily, however, Jamie was able to find a few that where about to ripen. Still green enough to not be eaten by the wildlife, but a day in the bag, and they'd be ready for use. (2 Pechaberries obtained!)Still, the pickings where slim, not to mention well guarded by ekans mere meters away in the deeper woods. Going any further in search would garentee trouble.
Orin packed up hit kit and called out to his team, "all right, that's enough for now, bring it in."
Azurill was gleefully bouncing atop Trubbish, who was less then pleased with it. but made a game of trying (and failing) to catch the tail in her mouth. The all made their way in as they were recalled one by one to their poke balls. Orin saw Jamie emerging from the woods, "good timing, Rook and Bandit should be ready to go, just gotta pich them up, you ready for the gym?"
Jamie nodded, tucking the pecha berries into her bag, and the two headed to the poke center. Orin popped in to get the rest of his team and the proceeded to the gym. Orin waved and smiled at the trainer on the sidelines attending to her pair of Oddish.
Jamie followed Orin in to pick up her pokemon as well, waving to the nurse as she left.
As they walked the path back through the gym and to the gym leader, Jamie nudges Orin to get his attention. "Hey, just letting you know in advance, probably gonna lead with the Tympole if we're finally fighting water types. That might mean that they'll be going for you with attacks if they're following the same pattern as before, so be careful about that, ok?"
She'd pause, tilting her head a little and cracking the slightest of smiles. She'd set the can down, and turn to face them, arms tucked into her sleeves. "Are you quite sure? I watched your fights on the way in, and as admirably as you preformed, you seem to be pushing your Pokemon to the limit."
She'd nod, walking to one edge of the arena, standing on the podeum. A similar one lay on the far side, it looked like an olympic one, with three diffrent levels. "Take your position then. I shall test your temperance with the serene movements of my pokemon!"
It all seemed so real now, he was headed into his first gym leader battle. He wondered how his brother felt at this same moment in his pokemon career. For Orin, he was excited, he felt his nerves tingling, but knowing even if he failed today, it would make him stronger tomorrow. He moved to his place on the opposite end of the areana.
Jamie steps up along with Orin, turning to look over the field. The previous battles were intense already, but all those were only leading up to getting here, and she was going to give it her all. "Alright, we're ready! Let's do this!" she yells out loudly.
She'd smile, almost giggling a little, and sending out her first two pokemon, throwing the balls high into the air. They're release the contence onto the stage in a brilliant flash, revealing... A magikarp, and a Febass
Jamie looked at the gym leader's pokemon, slightly confused. Magikarp? She thought that the gym trainer earlier had said that the gym leader could evolve pokemon early, but there it is, still on the field. A Magikarp. "Alright, Spike, you're up!" The Kakuna pops out of the ball onto the field, glancing over the opposing enemies before hardening, clearly thinking that they'll be tougher than Jamie's opinion of them.
The gym leader would grin, and the two fish would split ways, splashing out in impressive jumps. the feebass headding to the top of the arena, the Magikarp headding to the southern edge, both attempting to stay just out of easy reach from either of the pokemon.

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?

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.
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.
