Leanne followed, but stayed mostly towards the fields and away from the water. Some Water-types were cute, but she didn't think she'd want one as her starter. She kept checking around shrubbery and wooded areas.
Viviko quickly took a step back and stomped on the longest of the willow whips to make a makeshift barrier between herself and the pokemon. Her pokedex in hand, she scanned the creature, even though she already had some idea of what it was. The moment the machine beeped with confirmation, but before it could deliver any information, she threw one of the pokeballs through a gap in the whips.
The ball shakes twice before the Growlithe bursts out of it. With a loud bark it shoots a jet of fire at Viviko.

Meanwhile Leanne and Finn head over towards the stream and find a brown and yellow pokemon with a small trunk drinking from the water as well as a pokemon with yellow wool and blue skin drinking across from it. As the trainers walk up, the two pokemon look at them and a small orange fuzzy pokemon pokes its head out of the water.
Morgan pushes through the whips and as he comes out the other side he sees a small purple, fuzzy pokemon eating a berry while a pokemon that looks like a green plant bulb with a few leaves sticking out the top bounces around it.1d20·2d6+17
"Venonat, a Bug/Poison pokemon. It can cover its entire furry body in a poison. Venonat's highly developed eyes help it find suitable prey and can shoot powerful beams."
"Petilil, a Grass type Pokemon. Its head is tipped with three oblong leaves that are very bitter. However, these leaves possess revitalizing effects. Strangely, this Pokémon is a female only species with no male counterpart."
"Buizel, a Water pokemon. The yellow collar that surrounds its neck can be inflated and used as a flotation device when it inhales. By inflating this sac, it can keep its face above water to watch for prey movement."
"Drowzee, a Psychic pokemon. Drowzee is able to put people to sleep, and can then sense the person's dreams. This is so it knows what kind of dream it would be eating. It eats dreams through the victim's nose, so it is said that Drowzee is standing over a person's pillow if their nose itches while they are asleep. Drowzee has certain preferences for the dreams it eats, and it is known to love fun dreams and become ill from bad dreams. It will rarely eat the dreams of adults, as the dreams of children are seemingly tastier. Drowzee remembers every dream it has eaten, and may show past meals to a person that often sleeps by it."
"Mareep, and Electric pokemon. Mareep's wool, which grows continuously, stores electricity, rubbing together and building a static charge. Its volume increases when it builds up with electricity. Touching the wool when it is charged will result in a static shock. During the summer, the fleece is shed, but it grows back in a week. Air is also stored in its fur, which allows it to stay cool during summer and warm during winter. It tends to avoid battle in the wild and has a mild disposition. Mareep has an orange sphere at the end of its tail, which acts like a small light bulb. This sphere glows brighter the more electricity it has."
Finn is filled with absolute glee as he realizes that the Buizel is in fact an adorable water pokemon, whom could probably keep up with him when swimming. Finn gets down to Buizel's level and tries to get it's attention, while trying his best not to come off as hostile
"Hey little guy . . . um . . . I like your face? . . . Can I try and be your friend?"
Viviko immediately dropped to the ground and rolled, extinguishing the flames that clung to her clothes. With something of a pained gasp, she reached for another ball and threw it at the enraged pokemon, hoping to buy a few seconds while it'd be trapped inside. Not sticking around long enough to see if the ball actually hit the growlithe, the usually quiet girl yelled at the top of her lungs:
The Growlithe rips itself free of the ball again, shakes its head, and starts to run off.
The Buizel lifts its head fully our of the water and cocks its head at the strange boy. Leanne hears a strange rapid chirrup off to her left by a small berry bush. Finn is to preoccupied with the Buizel to notice.
Finn takes out one of his pokeballs and holds it in front of Buizel. He points at the button on the front
"See, if you touch this button here, and you'll be my friend, and we can like . . . um . . . swim . . . and do other things that are normal for friends to do . . . juggle?"

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.

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.
