"I'm without pokemon for the moment, but I wanted to check in, since it's been a while. Have you seen Jamie?" realizing that's a bit of a silly question, "I mean I guess you have if you've got her Weedle, but..."
"You doing alright? I'm noticing you've got a fairly tender touch with pokemon."
Jamie had woken up the first time someone had said her name, but she hadn't moved from her spot behind the tree so as to not disturb Speedy, who was busy napping on her stomach, rolled up and looking very comfortable. On hearing Orin ask where she was, she sticks out an arm so it can be seen from around the tree, and responds, "I'm over here. Have fun in town?" Speedy moves a little hearing her voice, and she gently pets his shell with her other hand.
"Yea, just relaxing with the Pokemon. Catch anything interesting while I was in the woods? There wasn't much interesting for me, just too many Ekans." Speedy slowly uncurls and opens his eyes, then grabs onto Jamie's shirt as she scoots around the tree so she can face the other two. "Speaking of which, either of you want an Ekans?" She points a thumb to her backpack.
"You know that Aipom that always hung around town, fighting with birds and snatching the occasional snack? Well, he'll be joining us on our journey. He's healing up with Nurse Joy at the moment." Orin shares the details of the capture if asked.
"Any idea of where to heat next, we cold root around in the grash a bit more?"
Jamie knew that Aipom, alright. She'd always made a habit of sticking her tongue out at it when she passed by, and occasionally throwing it a berry or two as a payment of sorts for it to not bother her. "As tempting as it sounds to catch a few more Weedle, I'd like to keep moving. Beginning Springs isn't too far off, and it's got a lot more in the ways of Pokemon... not to mention ways to make some cash. Balls don't exactly grow on trees, you know."
Skylar place Spike on the ground near Jamie, so he could get to her easily. When the mention of his tender touch came up, he gave a smile. "Its training, obviously~" He replied back, his tone seemed to be more or less avoiding the question, but that was up to them to decide if he was telling the truth or not.
When suggestions came about where to go next, he shrugged. "The next town perhaps?" He replied back before the mention of enaks came up. "No thank you." He simply said.3d6
"Well, if I had to guess what we'd run into... Pokemon. People. Possibly trees, if we forget to keep our eyes open." Jamie chuckles at her own joke. "But yea, I can wait here until you're ready to set off. Might try asking a Caterpie to get in a ball for me, I'm too lazy to throw one while I'm this comfortable."
So it would seem, Skylar likes to keep his secrets. Maybe he is modest, or just likes to be mysterious. Orin smiled slightly, 'if that's how he is, it's alright... unless he were to hide more important things.' Orin shook those thoughts out of his head.
"If you two would rather stay here, I be right back."
Orin headed off at a fast clip, to spend more time with Nurse Joy. Entering the Poke Center, "Hello again! How are the patients?"
The nurse would cheerily greet him, motioning to the glowing crate-sized box next to her. "Almost done! They'll simply be a few minutes more, you put them through quite the workout!" She'd say, with a kind smile. It wouldn't be long, indeed, only about five minutes, before the machine would ding, playing out the healing tune, and she hands him back his pokemon. "Now be careful not to push too hard! We can heal wounds quickly, but there's only so much healing you can do in a day!" she'd say, a soft scolding, but nothing serious, before she'd relent to a smile. "Now, I didn't mean it so litterally the last time I said it, but we hope to see you again soon! Take care Orin!"
Jamie watched Orin run back off towards town for a bit, then looked to Speedy, who had reclaimed her shoulder and was looking expectantly at her. "Alright, alright, I'm getting up already." Slowly standing with the tree as a support, Jamie yawns and stretches her arms. She'd gotten up really early today to make sure she had everything packed that she needed, so getting a bit more sleep was definitely good for her. Looking around at her feet to make sure nothing had fallen out of her bag, her eyes alight on a Caterpie munching on a fallen leaf close by. She had been joking about asking one to get in a ball earlier, but...
Snapping her fingers to get the bugs attention, Jamie puts a Pokeball on the ground in front of her and folds her arms, doing her best impression of Lizzie when she wanted something done for her. "Alright, kid. I'm going on an adventure. Come with me." She points to the Caterpie, then the ball.

Jamie shrugs and picks the ball back up, before leaning back against the tree. "Worth a shot, I guess." She hadn't really expected it to work anyway, and while she could probably catch it easily enough, there'd likely be better uses for the ball down the road.
Tazukie The caterpie mostly just slumped over, face down into it's meal, the hat stuck in it's back, nested in a rather devistating-looking gash across the length of it, the brim of the hat stained green with it's insect blood.

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.

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.
