Rook feels a surge of energy as his combatant falls; he turns to it, removes the hat, and places it on his own head. "All right, you won your first battle! Lets top you off at the poke center and see if we can find Aipom!"
Orin recalls Rook to give him a rest, then heads towards Skylar to inform him of the new heading. Upon getting close, he can see Skylar is in the middle of something with a Caterpie, so he decided to leave him to it undisturbed.
Sprinting to the Pokemon Center, Orin hurried through the door to greet Nurse Joy, "I told you we'd see each other soon, " he cracks a friendly smile, "I just won my first poke battle. Rook could use a top off please, then we're right back at it. Thank you very much."
He hands over the pokeball, and while he waits, he just takes in the bustle of the poke center, a world that he was a part of now. When Rook was ready, he thanked Nurse Joy again and scurried to the last place he saw and scanned the Aipom.

Tazukie The nurse happily takes the pokeball, congratulating Orin as she takes it to the machine. "Normally, healing up a team of pokemon takes an hour! But for injuries as small as this one, we can just use a potion or two." She'd say, humming a littl healing tune as she takes the pokeball into the back room. A mere ten minutes later, and she'd return, handing the pokeball back. "There we are! good as new! Hope to see you soon!" She'd say with a friendly wave, giving Orin a parting 'Stay safe' as he left. The Aipom wasn't hard to find, it was resting in it's favourite tree, in the middle of the town, a rather sizable apple, or rather, the core, likely pilfered from the fresh fruits stall, being held in it's tail.
(It would be a perception, in this case!) The Aipom had been here almost longer then Orin had, or at least, everyone always remembered seeing it. Even if it never really left town, it still scrapped with the occasional bird, or rodent who intruded on it's personal territory. The Aipom would give a lazy wave, being fairly familiar with Orin by now, not in the slightest worried.
Speedy barely wiggles out of the coils in time before it starts getting too uncomfortable, and responds by stabbing one of his spines at the offending Pokemon.

Jamie repeats the same maneuver and ball throwing as last time, though the insults directed at the snake are slightly different. "...moldy rope of a pokemon goes and breaks the ball I paid for, if this one doesn't work I am going to kick it into a TREE."

Skylar simply smiled as he watched the Caterpie cautiously entered into the pokeball. Placing the ball onto his belt, he quickly began to look around his surroundings. "Alright Coatli, I believe its time you got some exercise~" He said with a bit of a tease in his voice. The pokemon quickly woke up to the sound of her trainer's voice, before letting out a big sneeze. Skylar couldn't help but giggle as he picked up the turtle and began to look for more pokemon, this time however it would be a fight.
The ekans takes the hit, the wound leaking poison, but the venomsnake doesn't seem bothered by the toxic leaking from it's wound. It is definately hurt, however, hurt enough that it can't get away from the pokeball anywhere as easily, nor can it break out. The ball seals with a sharp click.
Jamie gains one Dex exp, and one untyped Exp for the learning event!
sandsofazorin Pokemon wouldn't be too hard to find, if not scarcely apart. Almost immediately close by, however, would be a Ratata, rustling a bush for the tiny, near-inedible berries it possessed, trying to get the ripe ones to the ground, it's attention split between shaking the bush, and checking for fresh food.
Tazukie The aipom seems hardly interested. It would sit up, but only to streach, it's waivering tail whiping out and tossing the applecore in your general direction. it always was a fairly rude, wild monkey, and it was living without so much of a care in the world.
Skylar had a bit of a cheeky grin on his face, the Rattata was distracted, wonderful! But then again... it would be rather rude to just go in without making it fair. "Coatli, use tackle!" He shouted as he gently placed the Turtwig down. The shouting wasn't so much a command, rather he was announcing his presence to the rattata. Coatli sprinted to the rattata, and tried to tackle it.
The ratata was still surprised by the force of the blow, at least, as it was sent through the insubstantial bush with a resounding crack. It wasn't going down without a fight, however, and, launching itself back through the bush, would rage in a tackle of it's own. xV4m0FlO1d20 AC3 Damage: 2d6+16 Round 2: The Ratata follows up immediately, however, launching into a quickattack to close the distance and, ideally for it, finish up the fight before it gets any more badly injured then it already is. 1d20 AC2 Damage: 2d6+16 1d20·2d6+16·1d20·2d6+16
Coatli barely managed to avoid the tackle from the Rattata, however she wasn't fast enough to react to the quick attack. Despite the good hit, she was still rearing to go. "Alright Coatli, one more tackle!" Skylar called out, as the mon quickly rammed into the wild pokemon.
Jamie picks up the pokeball and scans it with her pokedex before shoving it into her bag with a huff. "For the record, Speedy, whistling like that usually works a lot better." She gestures to her shoulder, and the Venipede climbs back up to his resting spot. "If there's no bugs this far out of the forest, I doubt there's any further in either. Guess it's the ones along the road for us, eh?" Turning around, she heads back towards the road, tracing her path so as to not run into any further Ekans.
sandsofazorin The ratata takes the hit, and is sent flying backwards, back into the bush. This time, it does not emerge from it.
Coatli gains 4 exp!
infomantis The trip back goes smoothly, slowed down by the thick 'grassland' of waist-high grass. back in the ankle-deep grass, the road is a hop skip and a jump away, as is the path it carved into the woods, sided by the encroaching trees looming. The pokemon on this outroad between her and town where all very weak, and scavengers more then hunters, this area poses no threat as long as you don't agress, much unlike the surrounding woods.
Skylar walked on over and gave Coatli an affectionate stroke on the head. Quickly, his attention turned to the rattata that was knocked out. He began to peel the branches a bit, trying to see where he landed. He believed he got the right area... and so he grabbed a couple of the ripe berries that the Pokemon was trying to grab, and placed them near the rattata. Once he was confident that the rattata was going to be alright, he backed away from the brush. This time however, he went to go find Jamie.
Jamie looks around for a few seconds, trying to see if there are any decently sized bugs for the catching, before her eye is caught by Skylar. "Catch anything good yet?" she yells towards her companion as she starts walking over, her sight still roaming the grass.

Skylar nodded, as he called out his Caterpie. Once she was in his hands, he raised her up so that Jamie could get a good look at her. "A Caterpie, I named her Scuttle~" He said proudly, before placing her gently on his shoulder. Already he could feel her quickly gluing herself to his shoulder as she got used to her new vantage point.
Skylar and jamie would quickly be able to meet up, there was hardly any visual obstructions in the area, and they where heading in the same general direction. Meeting up, you'd soon after see a torrent of sand spring up in the middle of town.

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.
