You don't see any trainers around right now, but you aren't sure if that's a good idea anyway.

Generally you hide from trainers since they always want to beat you up with their pokemon.

Although you have a burrow already, both of this sound like good ideas.

Which should you focus on first?

No. 482812 ID: 6e1234

Well I was trying to pick suggestions based on what seemed like the general majority. But I'm new to this, so if anyone has any suggestions on how to make the quest more enjoyable feel free.

Although frankly you were dealing with a hysterical and overprotective parent. The best way to have defused the situation would have been to first apologize and then maybe criticize him for his choice of a home after he had calmed down. I'm rather pleased with these turn of events though, if only because I wasn't expecting it at all.

Also I guess I'll just make this clear now, but I'm trying to go for a semi-realistic pokeverse while at the same time implementing some game mechanics. And for future reference I don't like sentient creatures eating other being considered a normal thing so real animals exist/everyone eats berries/whatever, point is pokemon eating each other is considered cannibalism.

and now that that's out of the way let's get back to the quest

Survey surroundings. Where are we? What's going on?

You're doing fine. If someone suggests something stupid or that needlessly provokes an npc, you're perfectly in the right to use it. And while the particular line you used was perhaps the most provocative, it's not as if any of the others suggestions were particularly calming. We were all bluster, pretty much.

And you're free to follow majority rule, or "character says any stupid thing a suggester comes up with" rule, or "character goes with suggestions he/she/it likes" rule. There's more than one way to make it work. Hell, you're even free to encourage trolls and always take bad suggestions! (Forcing us to police ourselves is tricky, but it's been done with varying degrees of success). It's really only unfair if you set up our expectations of quest mechanics one way and then change it unexpectedly.

So... while we're discussing rules of this universe, are we following game logic where we only have 4 moves, or anime logic, where we have access to a whole lot more?

File 135743848845.png - (238.92KB , 700x1200 , dun19.png )

Regarding moves, you basically have access to all moves you would have learned up to your current level. As well as all TMs you've learned, tutor moves, egg moves, etc. The 4 move limit only comes into play during official trainer battles (like against a gym leader or in a tournament) where trainers are limited to the first four moves that they use for the duration of the battle. Additionally you can also perform actions that aren't moves. For example Dunsparce does not naturally learn BITE, but Dunsparce has a mouth and can still bite things. However in a battle a bite would not be nearly as powerful or have the DARK typing of BITE.

You seem to still be in the forest, although it's a part of the forest that you don't recognize. But you never really traveled that far from your burrow in the first place.

You also seem to be pretty high off of the ground. Which now that you realize it is making you highly uncomfortable.

Thankfully you seem to still have your berries tucked into the side of your mouth.

Try and flip yourself around- grab onto the branch with your mouth! Then break out of your bonds. That way you don't fall to your death when you get free, and you can work on wiggling your way up onto the branch proper.

Your mouth is right here!

You could eat one of the berries right now, but CHERI BERRIES aren't really all that filling and their only special property is curing PARALYSIS.

Both of these sound like excellent ideas!

The first will get you back on the ground while also minimizing injury, although not getting rid of injury completely.
The second will get you out of your bonds without any injury at all, but you'll still be stuck in the tree.
Speaking of which your bonds seem to be the webbing from a STRING SHOT.

What will you do?
No. 482951 ID: 6a5a08

Try getting onto the branch; if you fail, reorient yourself as best you can and DEFENSE CURL to reduce impact.
No. 482952 ID: be7fd9

Yeah, this seems the best course of action. Defense curl and roll if we have to, climb into the tree if we can.

If we get up onto the branch, we'll try and find a way down (worst case, we can always default back to plan jump off).

Well done. Break your bonds, and survey the situation. We need to see if we can find a way down.

Well you're a burrowing Pokemon and you lack arms, so your climbing skills are understandably not very good.

You also aren't sure how much help your wings will be. They don't have much surface area and so can't really catch the air. The most you've ever been able to do is flutter them very quick and sort of jump up which allows you to hover for a few seconds. They may help to slow your fall though, but you've never tried it before.

And yes, your mom is a Dunsparce like yourself.

You look around to see if you can find a way down.

Well you are high above the ground in a tree surrounded by other trees. Below you you can see the path that goes through the forest for trainers. To the left the branch forks close to another tree that you might be able to jump over too. And to the right is-

Before deciding to get the Hoothoot's help you decide to take a look around.

On the left side opposite of the Hoothoot the branch ends in a fork close underneath the branch of another tree. The distance isn't that great and you're pretty sure that you could probably jump from the branch you're on now up to this one. However you're not sure how that would help you since it would only take you higher. But maybe you could find something in the other tree that would be interesting.

Your other options right now seem to either be to enlist the Hoothoot's assistance in getting down or to jump down yourself and use a combination of DEFENSE CURL and ROLLOUT to minimize injury.

Unless of course you come up with something else.

What do you want to do?
No. 483404 ID: be7fd9

The HootHoot seems awfully flustered. Everything all right? It's not the one who's found itself in completely the wrong environment.

>what do?
Let's try the other tree. We should explore the area fully, looking for an easy way down, before we risk jumping or an overburdened owl flight.

Might also help to get a look at the ground, as we go. There might be a better spot to jump down to (aiming for something soft, avoiding rocks, etc).

Your father was a Linoone. You are a Dunsparce. Continue your weird family tradition, and seduce the owl... thing. Maybe your horrible mutant offspring will be something cool, like a Scyther, or a Jigglypuff, or an Arceus.

I really am surprised I'm the first to suggest this and not Elephant Guy.

No. 484036 ID: be7fd9

But you can't watch pokemon create eggs at all! They're a strange quantum conundrum. They only appear when not observed. Scientists have been forced to conclude the poke-mating process must somehow involve an uncollapsed wave function.

Anyways, reassure the hoothoot, explore the next branch, and scope out the ground. We want to be sure there's no easy way down before we try to jump or fly. And if and when we do, we want to be aiming for something soft.

O-oh! My n-name's Terrance!

decide to go check out the next branch before you make any definite plans of seduction right now.

You tell Terrance that you'll be right back and hop up.
No. 484707 ID: dd0019

You first check out the side of the branch going away from the tree.

The branch just tapers off. It doesn't seem like you can go anywhere from here.

You also check out the ground. There doesn't seem to be any particularly soft spots for you to jump/land in other than a few bushes.

But there were also some bushes under the previous branch as well.

Next you turn around to check out the branch closer to the trunk.

There doesn't seem to be anything of much interest over here either.

You know, except of course, the hole.

Oh, there's something we've completely disregarded. What level are we and what is our name/gender?

Oh, and ask if there's anyone inside. We learned our lesson last time about haphazard disturbances.

Don't bother peeking in the hole, just go ask Terrance for help getting back to the ground.

Peek in the hole!

We're an underground burrowing thing, right? Holes are right up our alley! Especially if the tree is hollow, we can climb down the inside.

Just be careful, in case there's anything already in there.

You decide to just peek inside the hole real quick while first making sure that no one is inside.

It seems to go far down, very far down. Farther than the base of the tree at the very least and into the ground.

You are currently at LV.15

Whats our ability? I assume we're not a dream world dunsparce, so it'd either be run away or serene grace.
Anyways, try using secret power on the tree to see if it'd drop some vines. Assuming we inherited secret power from our dad.
No. 484884 ID: be7fd9

Oh. Um. That looks like you can't climb down easily. You'd have to jump. Which, since we don't know how far down it goes, really isn't very safe.

Looks like we're going to have to go back to the other branch and get off with plan defense curl and rollout. (I'm kind of reluctant to bully the hoothoot into hurting itself carrying something bigger than itself).

Alright you are Snuddy the Dunsparce of ambiguous gender!

Your ability is SERENE GRACE.
A trainer would definitely find this to be the better of the two abilities, but for a wild Dunsparce it is debatable.

And unfortunately your dad did not know SECRET POWER, so you don't have access to that move.

Well it definitely does not seem like it would be very safe to jump down some deep, dark, unknown hole, so you decide to go back to your previous goal: getting back to the ground.

And you're not sure that pressuring a nervous Hoothoot that you just met into helping you is the best idea either. So you decide to go back to plan DEFENSE CURL/ROLLOUT jump combo.

Well, it's now or never.

I'll take that as a yes.

Climb out of the bush and ask Terrance where you actually are. I wonder how far away the Butterfree dropped us.
No. 485327 ID: be7fd9

All right! Doesn't look like we pulled off the zelda roll right before you land trick though.

Reassure the hoothoot that you're fine, see if he or she can tell you what part of the forest you're in, or possibly which way to a landmark you know. Otherwise we're going to have a hard time finding your burrow.
No. 485395 ID: ed2ed9

do you still have them berries?

Yes, you still have your berries.

You make sure to tell Terrance that you're alright and he flies down next to you.
You ask him if he knows what part of the forest you are in and if there are any landmarks nearby.

Terrance: O-oo well I knoo-ow that we're in-n the northenmost edge of the forest here. This part of the path is where lots of t-trainers enter and leave the forest, soo-oo I guess it's a so-ort of landmark?

Terrance: Oo-oh! I alsoo-o think that there's a stream over that way.

It seems like you're quite far from home. Your burrow is near the completely opposite end of the forest that opens out near a meadow. You're not even sure what's on this side of the forest.
And you don't remember a stream being anywhere near your burrow either.
No. 486018 ID: a744c3

No. 486061 ID: be7fd9

Huh. We must have really made that butterfry mad.

I guess now we've on a quest to find our way home? And try to avoid trainers. They have nasty habits, like training their enslaved 'mons by beating every wild they encounter into unconsciousness. Or worse, enslaving wild mons. You're pretty sure you don't want that.

How good are we at tunneling? Can we travel around underground bugs bunny style? (Or diglet style, I guess that would be more appropriate in this setting. Whatever). That would make it easier to avoid running into trouble.
No. 486087 ID: f2c20c

Well, at least we have food. I guess we can say goodbye to Terrance and start moving towards home.

It seems that if you want to head home you have several options.

First you could follow the path. This way is guaranteed to at least get you in the general vicinity of where your burrow is. You know that your burrow is somewhat near the other end of the path, although you're not sure exactly where since you try to avoid the path in general.
This brings you to the problem with following the path. The reason of course that you try to avoid the path is trainers. Also since the path was designed for trainers it's longer and more winding to present a challenge and not a straight shot through the forest, meaning it would take you a lot longer to get through the forest if you took this route.

Your second option would be to follow the stream. If you take this route you are most or less guaranteed to not run into any trainers as they usually don't stray from the path, however you have no idea where exactly the stream goes. On the other hand you would be much more likely to run into other Pokemon while following the stream who might know your side of the forest better and could possibly give you more detailed directions.

Your third option would be to just head off into the forest and hope you get lucky. Obviously like the stream you would be less likely to run into trainers and more likely to run into Pokemon with this route. The downside is that without anything to follow like the stream or path you could very easily get even more lost.

Or you could try and think of something else.

Unfortunately at your currently level you can't really perform any extensive tunneling. You can do some basic digging like you did to create your burrow, but until you learn DIG something like this would be out of the question.

What would you like to do?
No. 486174 ID: be7fd9

Hmm. Well, trainers are a big danger. We'd end up getting pummeled for XP, or worse, captured, when we came across them (too bad we don't have run away, actually).

Wild 'mons are somewhat safer to deal with, so long as we don't roll a critical diplomacy fail again (no more baby eating jokes!). Rivers are kind of nature's highways already, aren't they? They should sort of be used to things passing through.

So I'd say the river seems best.
No. 486181 ID: c31f72

I say you find a few nearby berry trees, find a good spot near said trees and dig a new home. Unless you have something important in your other house, it isn't really worth risking getting captured or beaten up.

Following Terrance's directions you finally arrive at the stream.

You don't see any other Pokemon at the moment. You guess you should just start following the stream?
