Steve can't take all the Pokemon! Professor Oak is watching and Steve's pretty sure that Oak could at least give him a run for his money in a fight. Plus, there's the other two that want Pokemon. The girl seems agitated that Steve is taking so long.

Hell yeah! Let's choose Charmander! Steve grabs Charmander's pokeball, and the girl behind him lets out a huge sigh. Steve's sure the little bitch's name is Judy.

"It's about time! Geez grandpa, I thought you were gonna take forever. I choose Squirtle!"

The guy, who Steve knows vaguely as Cory, just shrugs. "Yeah, whatever, Bulasaur's cool."


Wait, wha-

"Ah, great! I'm glad everyone's chosen!" Professor Oak cries. Today you children begin a wonderful journey through the world of Pokemon! I've already given you your pokedexes, so off you go! I've got a lot of projects going on that need attending."

Well, we got our first pokemon! What now?

Alrighty, Steve opens up the old blue pokedex after releasing his Charmander. The other two trainers are doing the same, and there's a few minutes where you get time to make out the damn thing.

For one, it looks like there are MANY BUTTONS. This make's Steve's head hurt and ache for a drink. After a while however, it looks like Charmander's info is already in there! Wow, what a waste of time! Well, let's see if it tells us anything useful about Charmander.

>Obviously prefers hot places. When it rains, steam is said to spout from the tip of its tail.

Wut. That's it? Dammit. Screw this thing.


Steve thinks you mean Cory! It would be very difficult for Steve to challenge himself.


"Hey, grandpa..." Judy begins to say, once she puts away her own pokedex. "Wanna..."

"HEY KID" You yell at Cody, speaking over Judy and jabbing a finger at him. "Let's do this. I challenge you to a battle. A Pokemon battle."

Cody shrugs. "Um, sure?" Let's go outside I guess.

Judy lets out a huge harrumph, and follows behind to watch the match without a word.

Ok, how should Steve approach this?

Wow! The battle was FULL of exciting battle footage! Too bad it all got lost.

Looks like the tactic of "light the grass pokemon on fire with your tail" worked pretty well! Cory's Bulbasaur pretty much just ran in a circle after that, and after it falls over Cory returns it with a shrug of the shoulders. Charmander didn't even take damage.

"Oh well. Good match, Steve. Looks like I gotta train a bit more if I wanna beat you."

"He didn't even use a real attack, Cory! He cheated!" Judy says, scowling at the boy. "Geez, you're never even going to get a badge if you don't even know that.

>Get ready to tackle Judy.

"Well you think you'll do better?" Steve asks cockily as he and Charmander bask in the glow of victory.

"Char!" Charmander agrees, imitating Steve. He looks a little more sure of himself than before.

"Fine, I'll show you a REAL battle!" Judy says, and Squirtle measures up with Charmander.

Ok, Steve doesn't think he can use... "interesting" methods this time, but he's willing to try anything once. What to do against the water pokemon?

Wow. Look at those things. They are so... tiny.

Well Steve, I suggest the Mario method. Jump on the bastard. Or get Charmander to jump on him.

If memory serves, Squirtle can't even use any water based attack yes. So just have Charmander scratch and bite, being that lizards are better for that sort of thing that turtles.
No. 33687 ID: 6164e0

Okay, most pokemon fighters are dumb as stumps.

Your pokemon is carnivorous and has fangs, and your opponent is too new to be able to use water attacks.

Have Charmander go straight for squirtle's throat. Failing that, push squirtle over, onto his shell.

Once the battle begins, Steven tells Charmander to throw a hadful of dirt into his opponent's eyes! Steve... doesn't actually know his pokemon's moves. Squirtle is blinded only for a moment, but that's all it takes.


Charmander, at Steve's commanding, jumps on the back of the turtle, and after latching on chomps heavily on the water pokemon's head. Squirtle goes berserk, but can't shake Charmander off, forcing a VERY frustrated Judy to return her Squirtle. Steve is victorious again!

"You cheated AGAIN! You're a huge jerk grandpa! My mom says you're a big loser who never had a girlfriend because you smell like beer anyhow! So NYEAH!" Judy sticks out her tongue in anger before running off. Steve is too wrapped up in his own personal dance of victory that he doesn't notice.

"Uh... yeah... I'm gonna leave." Cory says, and starts off as well without a second glance, leaving Steve by himself.

Steve is still doing VICTORY JIG. What should he do now?

Fuck yeeeeeah! Let's get wasted! Steve goes back to his HOUSE, the only place yet that has a discernible difference between the wall and floor! Wow! Steve has a bottle of Beany Jim's whiskey, and he prefers it straight from the bottle! Charmander needs the help of a cup to drink, but after one glass he's pretty hammered too.

This would be an ok time to go over Steve's INVENTORY. He has 1 bottle of WHISKEY. 2 POKEBALLS. 1 POTION and of course the POKEDEX. Steve keeps all these items in his POCKETS.

Steve's already pretty DRUNK by this point. It's hard for DRUNK STEVE to keep both eyes open. What should Steve and Charmander get up to now?

Fist, have something with caffeine in it. Being drunk is fine, but we need enough caffeine to not have to worry about accidentally passing out.

Now, charmander just beat two pokemon its own level at level 5, it has to have leveled at least once.

Now, use your drunk abilities to do the following.

1: head outside of town now, rather than waiting for tomorrow.

2: wander around fighting pokemon near the town. just beat up rattata and pidgeys, but if you run into anything else, let us know.

Hopefully as a career drinker the booze and the caffeine together (plus some more whickey and coffee as outdoor rations) should let you get charmander to practice all night, and since both other potential rivals are little kids, they will have trouble staying up that late (this is first generation, and back then the main character trainers (all little kids) could only go about doing stuff during the day. Whenever charmander gets too wounded, just head back into town and get him treated.

If you do this, by tommorow you charmander will be much more capable at fighting, you will have learned more about what charmander can do, and you will be ready for whichever of these little brats decides to challenge you west of Viridian city.

Hell yeah time to head out on a pokemon adventure! You're feeling good and Charmander looks like he's feelin' good, so you guys head out to Viridian City. Steve bring with him two more bottles of WHISKEY and a thermos of COFFEE even though he doesn't feel like taking it right now.

On the way there you encounter a Rattata! This is it, a time for Charmander to hone his skills in battle! You boldly send him in with... whatever and the lizard drunkenly stumbles forward into combat.

Okay then, lets keep heading to Viridian city, trying to give charmander as many animals to fight as possible (since rats and pigeons aren't really a threat to charmander, he can practice against them with impunity.

Only step in if it looks like he is going to get hurt.

If you get the chance to test the alcohol+fire pokemon theory a time or two on the way, that would be perfect.

Anyway, use the powers of booze and being a fully grown adult to train ALL NIGHT with charmander, and use the coffee to make sure you stay awake through the next day.

By the time you get to viridian city, your goal is to have charmander learn at least one fire based move (not counting pressing his tail against someone).

Remember, those two kids will likely challenge you again soon, so you want to stay a step ahead.

...holy crap.

That would work PERFECTLY.

Would mean we wouldn't need to spend a bunch of time traininng either.

But lets use a little safety. Drunk or no, I am reasonably sure that Steve does not want to burn to death.

So try and spot a field of tall grass that has a decent gap between itself and the treeline, with little to no vegetation connecting the two. THEN douse it with a healthy portion of booze, and have charmander light it, and both of you will keep the pokemon inside the blaze until they are dead.

Steve decides to just... let it recover. Yeah. Time to go find some other stuff to fight! Boy, Steve wishes there was some easier way to do all of this training nonsense.


Steve tries one of his pokeballs, but it appears they don't work on... uh... sleeping pokemon.


That's when Steve gets the greatest idea EVER. One that couldn't possibly go wrong.

Finding a big patch of tall grass that's conveniently away from trees, Steve walks around the edges and douses it with the remainder of this bottle. Steve steps far away, not wanting to die as he cracks open another bottle of alcohol.

"Charmander... use... um..." Steve takes out his pokedex. Charmander's listing says that Charmander has the moves Scratch, Growl and Ember. Steve calls bullshit already because he knows he told Charmander to chomp that Squirtle's head, but whatever. "Ember I guess!"

Charmander spews a small stream of fire that catches on the damp grass.

Before long, the first of the screams fill the air. Shrieking little cries from unseen voices pierce the dusk air as the fire turns nasty. Steve is uncomfortably aware of the smell of cooking animals.

Uh... Charmander doesn't look all that much stronger. Charmander shrugs, giving Steve a "What do you want from me" expression.

Hmm. Well, that flame looked pretty big for a small guy! Steve thinks that the Whiskey might have helped! That's good right?
No. 34449 ID: 7eda8b

That fire's still small, looks like. Whatever's been killed so far was too weak to run. So they clearly weren't worth much XP.

Hmm, well, no experience? Huh, guess we'll just have to get Charmander to fight the good old fashion way.

Have charmander edge closer to the fire, some fire pokemon don't seem to mind being surrounded by fire (his tail is constantly on fire, after all).

Maybe if this isn't giving him experience, he can go into the blaze to fight burning foes?

Hey, if he can stand the fire, it would work.

Steve tells Charmander to go and head in once the fire starts to burn itself down. Charmander wanders in happily, and knocks out the various weakly struggling rats and birds.

Steve goes in too, looking around for any pokemon that's not some stupid bird or something. He finds a pink thing, and it actually doesn't look too hurt by the fire. The thing looks really dumb, and is obviously confused out of its mind as it tries to make sense of the destruction. Steve decides what the hell, he's the only pokemon who's NOT charred black and frankly scary-looking.

Steve throws a pokeball, and captures his first pokemon!

Steve doesn't know about names. He's never considered naming his pokemon, because the only people who have either name their pokemon human names (Like Chris or something) or something corny. (Like phoenix or darkheart)

Eventually Steve decides to go with "Spike" for Charmander. One name's as good as another for Steve. Not being able to think of a good name for Slowpoke, Steve decides to think more about that later as he lights a cigar on Charmander's tail.

Oh right Steve smokes. He's only got two more cigars though, and they're small enough that they don't take up real inventory space.

Well anyhow, Charmander actually got some experience from that! Probably from the ones he knocked out that were wishing for death. According to Steve's pokedex, Charmander now also knows the move smokescreen! Score! Of course Steve is wary about setting more patches of grass aflame, because it sent up a LOT of smoke, he's pretty sure it's illegal, and of course when it comes right down to it Steve doesn't want to KILL anyone. He's just not that kind of guy. (Accidental skull-to-bottle damages notwithstanding) Getting arrested is NOT on Steve's top 10 things to do.

So, what now? As Steve passes Charmander the whiskey and the little lizard takes a grateful swig, he contemplates his next move.

You said you don't want to get arrested, right?


Now, head to another suitable patch of grass, there is a different method to earn xp quick that might not get you arrested.

1: have charmander stay on on side of the grass field, and start using smokescreen to flood the grass with smoke.

2: when pokemon try to flee in any direction that is NOT charmander, make loud noises, charge them and wave your bottle at them.

3: keep an eye on charmander while he fights the creatures forced to try and pass him to make sure he isn't overwhelmed.

The smoke will severely irritate their eyes, noses and lungs, giving them breathing problems, blurred sight and a lack of a sense of smell. For pokemon like these, that is pretty much defenseless.

Plus, since you aren't burning down the forest, you shouldn't have to worry about going to jail.

Your little fire pokemon should be strong enough to laugh at the rock gym in no time!

That sounds good, but could Steve help by holding pokemon and having Spike smash their faces in? As a different course of action?

Would the exp still count for Spikes?
No. 34689 ID: 6164e0

I get the feeling that the more of the actual fighting Spike does, the more xp he earns.

And besides, Spike is at least level 10 now, he doesn't need our help for rattata or pidgeys in the 2-4 level range.

So lets get our buddy evolved into a Charmeleon before we get to Viridian city, then start down the path towards the Elite four to run into whichever of our rivals is there, stomp them and laugh before actually bothering with anything in Viridian city proper (other than a pit stop to get Spike healed up)

Steve uses Spike's new Smokescreen attack to great effect! It drives pokemon out of hiding, and into Spike's claws and flame. After beating a few of the locals up, Steve even brings out Slowpoke, who mostly just sprays water at the pokemon he fights.


For just this moment Steve thinks it wouldn't be such a good thing to help out. His intervention had only lead to mass pokemon death. If he keeps this up people will think he's some kind of psycho.


Then Steve gets an idea that makes him forget about wasting time on stupid rats and birds. He can make his two monsters fight! He pits the two against each other, and gives them both commands.

"Oh, Spike use Ember! Slowpoke, just attack I guess!"

Spike cockily rears back and hits slowpoke in the face with a stream of fire, but it doesn't seem to faze the slow-moving thing much.

Slowpoke is looking at Spike with a slowly dawning look of recognition. Steve has a gut feeling it's something about setting that grass ablaze. Slowpoke rears back on its' hind legs for a moment, catches another quick blast of fire to the face that he shrugs off, and then head butts Spike with a glowing yellow skull. Spike's out cold.

Steve is impressed as he looks on! Checking his Pokedex, he reads off that Slowpoke has the moves Zen Headbutt, Water Gun, Curse and Yawn.

Steve returns Spike, sad that he'll have to stop training him for the day but glad he has another good pokemon. Well, now that Charmander's out should Steve head to Viridian City?

Let's head on to Viridian City then. Much closer to there than we are to the house in any case.

As Steve nears the city, he can barely make out the lights of the town in the dusk. Not far now.

"Hey buddy!" Comes a voice from off the beaten trail. Steve turns to see a man dressed in black motioning him over. "Hey I got a question for ya. I need a light. C'mere."

Steve has no idea who this gentleman is or why he'd like to talk with him! Steve's a bit perplexed. The man doesn't even look like he NEEDS a light.

"Oh hey, you did get the memo from Mr. Giovanni, right? The one that was sent out earlier today?" Steve asks, not knowing what he's saying as the words tumble out of his mouth. He's trying real hard to be casual now.

The Rocket goes from being smug to looking... confused. Finally, he settles on angry. "Is this some kind of joke, kid? Giovanni hasn't been heard from in over six years! Ever since that bastard kid beat him in the Gym!"

Um... Steve wasn't expecting that.

Steve isn't really sure he means that. For one, Steve REALLY needs to get all the badges and challenge the Pokemon League. It's hard to do that as a registered felon.


Officer Jenny? Yeah, there's one in Pallet Town. Steve knows there's more police than that though.

The Rocket seems suspicious, but also calms down notably. "Hmm... well, if you want to join the first thing is to hand over your pokemon and pokedex. I'll bring you to the nearest Rocket Coordinator and we'll see about getting you outfitted. Of course you'll have to undergo some... aptitude tests."


Steve scratches his chin, making it seem as if he's thinking the statement over heavily. His fingers are right near his cigar should this turn nasty. the other hand slides from the genitals to Steve's pocket.

I mean, is it any wonder you still don't have the clout you had when Giovanni was still around? He kept Team Rocket strong through his own capabilities. Without him, the only way for you to become strong is for all members to start diversifying, getting more varied types and practicing on their own outside of work for the Team. Heck, I could probably show you how to improve your own method of mayhem with pokemon if you show me what pokemon you have. I figure it is the least I can do for a likeminded individual.'

While Steve doesn't see why he should tackle the guy, hitting him with a weapon more at hand seems to be a bit more prudent.

The guy goes for a pokeball. A bit too slow. "Kid, I'm gonna make yo- HURK" He's interrupted as the whiskey bottle catches him alongside the head, dropping him like a log. He's still breathing, but certainly down the the count

He begins to drag the Rocket into town, happy with the turnout of this little exchange as he finds the Viridian City Police Station, not far from the gates of the town. Turns out that this guy did have a bounty on his head! Score!

Steve doesn't bother with exactly how much cash he's got, he just knows he has ENOUGH CASH. So, now that we're in the big city (you can tell we're in the big city thanks to the CONVENIENT HOME in the background) what does Steve want to do now?

No. 35058 ID: 6164e0


Actually, that sounds like a great idea. I mean, if we set it up right Spike could take out opponents way out of his league.

I mean, gout of burning liquid and fire hits them, which then ignites them, and they continue burning despite efforts to douse themself because some of the alcohol has seeped into their hide/feathers/fur.

Sounds like a fairly powerful move.
No. 35059 ID: e9bd6a

I see a couple problems though. I think using alcohol (whether it's giving it to Spike or dousing a foe in it) would count as using an ITEM. That takes up a turn and gives the other pokemon time to act. In the game, the one hit kill is really the only way to go, otherwise they'll wear you down slowly (forcing you to stay near a pokecenter), or give you a lame ass status effect like poison, stun, or sleep.

Additionally, we'll have to keep buying booze, which means burning through our money (pun intended). Not to mention... where do they sell more alcohol? At the pokemart?
No. 35061 ID: 4902ae

Well, if Spike brings a bottle of booze with him into the fight, it counts as a held item, and activation is instantaneous then. And unless we find some way cooler thing for him to hold/use, I don't see why we wouldn't give Spike a bottle of high proof grain alcohol.

As to the booze question, remember we do actually have MONIES now, and can get more bottles without concern for a time.

As to who sells them, no idea, but I would imagine Steve knows.

Steve decides to head off to the PokeMart first! Battling is all well and good but he may as well put some of this money to good use. Thoughts of Blue, Red and Green will have to wait.

As Steve enters the pokemon center, he sees only one other customer in the store, a man who has most of his face taken up by a gray beard. The man is reading through a rack of magazines, and doesn't even look in Steve's direction.

The woman behind the counter waves happily. "Hello there! What can I help you with?"

Steve knows that they usually sell alcohol behind the counter in these places. They're like all-purpose stores. "Any whiskey? And cigars? Oh, I guess some pokeballs. And some potions."

"Um, a repel? And some pants? And a flask too."

As the woman bustles off, Steve gets a good look at the message on the front of the counter. He inquires about it when the woman comes back. "Um, what sort of special offer do you have?"

"Well, with a sufficiently large enough purchase you receive a raffle ticket. It adds you into our lottery to receive a special prize! In fact, it seems you qualify. Would you be interested in joining our raffle?"

Oh, and when you get Spike patched up, when you first take him out of the ball, give him a speech (while chewing a cigar and downing whiskey) that goes something like:

'So, you lost against that Slowpoke. Doesn't feel, good, losing, does it? You want to taste victory again, don't you? And you don't want to lose again, right? Then never underestimate an opponent, and always be ready to improve yourself.'

Then that would be the time to give him the flask and start teaching him how to use it to improve flame attacks, and how dousing an opponent with some of the stuff before burning them leads to wildly more devestating attacks.

"Sure, why the hell not." Steve takes and fills out his name and number from his pokedex on the card. "How will you contact me anyhow? I'm only here for the night probably."

"Oh we'll send a deliveryman to find you if you win." The woman behind the counter puts Steve's ticket in a bucket with a couple of others, and he heads out.



That's just the bearded guy from earlier perusing Pokemon Magazines. Steve does think this is a good time to get his pokemon healed up and then have a quick talk with Charmander. Steve stops by the pokemon center before finding a bench in a quiet part of town. Steve fills the flask up and summons his pokemon.

Wordlessly, Steve lights two cigars, passes one to Charmander and smokes his slowly. He hands the little lizard the flask as well, and Charmander takes a grateful pull.

The FLASK works as a held item in combat with 3 "CHARGES" of alcohol. It increases the power of FIRE moves.

"That's yours to keep." Steve tells Spike. The Charmander looks surprised at the news. "So, you lost against that Slowpoke. Doesn't feel good, losing, does it? You want to taste victory again, don't you? And you don't want to lose again, right? Then never underestimate an opponent, and always be ready to improve yourself."

Spike looks inspired by his master's words! Steve thinks he can really talk some bullshit when he's hammered!

We are tipsy indeed! Heading west out of town, Steve comes across a few random wild ratattas and pidgeys. He uses Slowpoke against them, wanting to train up his new pokemon. He tries using Grimer, but it's a little asshole and won't listen to Steve's commands. He returns it after a bit.

A little ways out of town, Steve hears voices, one familiar, off in the grass. Heading through the brush to check it out, he comes across Judy and... well, Steve's never seen her before but she looks around 16 or 17 to him. She has a passing resemblance to Judy, and is blushing wildly as the smaller girl talks over her. "Well Judy... it's not that easy... mom and dad want me to make sure that you're safe! I don't see why you're..."

"I'm NOT gonna go on my Pokemon adventure with my sister! That's final! I don't care what you think, I'm going to be a pokemon master by myself! Cory gets to go out on his own!" Judy yells back, and the blonde girl blushes deeper.

Steve walks up to the pair, though he keeps a respectable distance. He waves jovially at the pair of them. "Hey there ladies! What seems to be the problem? Anything I can do to help?"

The girl who Steve assumes is Judy's sister blushes again and pokes Judy in the back. "Sis? Who's-"

"He's nobody important!" Jusy barks, silencing her sister with a glare before she turns to Steve and points an accusing finger at him. "What do you want? Go away if it's nothing!"

Steve tries to keep up a dialogue. "Uh.. you want to inrotuce me to your sister?"

The girl with the glasses speaks up before Judy can say anything. "M-my name's Amber. Who's this, Judy?"

"He's a beginning trainer, like me. Mom says he's big and dumb and he smells. His name's Steve." Judy seems to revel in making fun of Steve to his face.

"So... your parents want you to travel together then? Amber, how come I've never seen you before?" Steve asks, intrigued. Amber's got a decent rack.

"I l-live in Johto. I came over w-when my father heard Judy was leaving." Amber supplies, and seeing Steve's confused expression elaborates. "Our p-parents are divorced. I live w-with dad and his new wife and Judy lives with mom."

"I told you I'm NOT going with you though!" Judy looks livid.


Steve decides to help Amber out, who looks a bit distressed at her sister's attitude. "Hey Judy why don't we have a pokemon match? If I win you have to go wi-"

"How about NO?!" Judy barks back, catching Steve offguard. "I'm tired and I don't want to battle you right now. I'll battle you next time though you big dumb ox!"

Judy crosses her arms across her chest, unfazed. "I thought it was illegal to let your pokemon drink."

Steve glances around to see Charmander sipping at his flask. Damn.

Steve wants to yell WHY COULDN'T YOU JUST WAIT 5 MINUTES but there's people around. Amber looks a bit concerned, and Judy looks smug.

Hmm. Steve's drawing a blank right now.
No. 35235 ID: f4963f

Insinuate that she doesn't want to battle you because she knows she'll lose again. And that she doesn't want to lose again because if she did, then we'd all know she needs her big sis to look out for her. Hopefully we can provoke her into a fight anyway?

Completely let the alcohol topic drop, though. Inebriation rights for all living creatures!
No. 35238 ID: 6164e0

Also, there are no rules on pokemon drinking, at least not in the official pokemon setting.

Then try and encourage her to fight you as a way to improve. After all, if we are 'just some dumb trainer,' then the fact she lost to us doesn't bode well for her future. Try and look mature and manly doing so, so her sister likes you more.

Lightly admonish Spike for drinking from the flask right now, and remind him to think on why he has the flask before just drinking it (whisper to him that you will give him drinks from your own stuff outside of battle, the flask is battle-only).

You know you want to troll judy by acting nice, courteous and mature in front her sister so she won't believe Judy when she rails on us.

"Oh Spike don't be drinking that... lemonade right now you little rascal." Steve says jovially.

As Judy turns away from Steve in a huff, Steve lays his hand on Judy's shoulder. "Hey now are you angry because you think you'll lose again? It's ok, for some the path of the Pokemon Master is a difficult one." Steve turns his attention to Amber, who puts her hands behind her back and looks embaressed. "Your pretty sister here just wants to go on a pokemon journey with you. Nothing wrong with that."

"I am tired." Judy sounds very hollow. "Take your hand off my shoulder."

"P-pretty?" Amber asks.

Judy looks kind of serious. What should Steve do?
No. 35247 ID: 6164e0

Hrm. She stopped insulting you.

You may not know much about little kids, but you know that when they go from being angry and calling people names to being quiet and distant, you should probably let them be.

Ask Judy if she has seen Cory as a change of subject, and flirt some more with Amber.

Once you run out of suave things to do to impress her, you should head on out to leave a good impression.

Maybe ask for her number (after all, responsible adults should stay in contact when trying to keep a kid out of trouble, right?), then head on to some tall grass.

No. 35339 ID: 6164e0

Depends. If this is exclusively first gen, there are several pokemon that are somewhat easy to get that end up becoming strong.

probably our first concern would be to catch a Magikarp and find some way for the bugger to get experience as soon as possible, a giant flying water dragon would be hand.

Spike (as Charizard)

sounds alright to me, and the only one that is rare-ish is getting Dratini.

Steve takes his hand away. He guesses starting a scene isn't worth a pokemon battle. He rubs the back of his neck in embarrassment. "Didn't mean anything by it... um, have you seen Cory today?"

Judy still looks angry, but she responds civilly enough. "I only saw him heading for Pewter City. If you wanna go beat him again in a pokemon battle you better catch up."

Steve realizes he might be looking like a giant douchebag in front of Amber. He decides to try making a HEARTFELT SPEECH. "Look, I'll just say one more thing. You're pretty lucky, Judy. You've got your sister you haven't seen in a while wanting to come with you on your pokemon journey. I wish I had someone who wanted to come with me. I don't even have any brothers. So, I can understand why you're resisting it, but maybe just let your sister tag along for a while. Until you get on your feet. Plus, I'm sure she wants to catch up on things, don't you Amber?"

Amber nods (her glasses stop wrapping around her whole head mysteriously), and blushes again as Steve shoots her a SMIRK. "Y-Yes I'd like that."

Judy turns around to look at Steve, as if measuring how much he means his words. Steve's surprised to see Judy not angry-looking. Finally, she gives a 'why not' shrug. "Oh, I guess so. Fine, let's go Amber. Bye Steve." Judy walks off towards town without a second glance back.

Amber smiles at Steve in gratitude as she walks up to him. "T-thank you for helping me with that. She can be very stubborn sometimes. I just want to make sure she can take care of herself."

"Hey no problem. Say, uh, maybe I could get your pokedex number? You could give me a call if you need anymore help, or I could give you a call sometime. I'd like to hear from you again."

Amber blushes deeply this time as the two exchange pokedex numbers. "A-alright. I-I'll give you a call sometime."

Steve waves after her, admiring her ass for a moment before turning back to the task at hand. Well, that went well. Steve begins to wander around for Pokemon in the immediate area, unless there's something else Steve wants to accomplish?
No. 35357 ID: 6164e0


Other than catching Nidoran and/or Weedle, I don't think there is any reason to not head up to Viridian Forest.

We should probably come up with some other ways to tilt matches in our favor.

...maybe find some weed, and keep it for later to use against water pokemon, have Spike hold it in his mouth and use ember (thereby smoking out the water pokemon and hopefully giving them dry mouth so they can't use water attacks?

Steve goes out looking for pokemon to capture. Unfortunately, he's confused when he finds two different kinds of Nidoran! Steve just captures both so he doesn't have to think too hard.

The only other pokemon around are pidgeys and rattatas, so Steve just says screw this place and heads off towards Viridian Forest. He's gotta stop by Viridian City on the way there, should he stop and do anything or continue on to Viridian Forest?

You first heal up your pokemon before heading on. Steve's pretty impressed with his pokemon so far. He's got a Charmander, Slowpoke, Grimer, and two Nidorans. Almost a full team already. As he heads off to Viridian Forest, he releases Charmander, the two Nidorans and Grimer.

"Alright, I want the three of you to duke it out. Also, keep up. Spike, don't use your fire and stuff."

The three pokemon Steve has captured start to square themselves, while Grimer stays stubbornly in place. "Oh, and beat the shit out of Grimer first. He's pissing me off." The sounds of Grimer getting beat on follow Steve for a while, until he returns ir absentmindedly.

Steve has a pleasant and uneventful trip to Viridian Forest.

Hell yeah Steve heads off to kick some trainer ass! The first kid he runs into is looking through the bushes with his STUPID NET. "Hey faggot! Wanna battle!" Steve yells, taking a long drink of his whiskey before refocusing his attention.

"No, my name's Johnny!" The kid says eagerly, and pulls out a pokeball. "I'll battle you though! Metapod, go!"

Steve stares at the unmoving green pokemon for a moment. "Uh... what can that thing do?"

"Well, mostly just protect itself from being hit better." The kid concedes after a moment.

"So... there's nothing it can do if Spike here just sets it on fire." Steve is dumbfounded it's hard to beat other pokemon trainers.

"Um, I guess?" The kid looks unhappy.

"Ok, blow it up Spike." Steve says, puffing at his cigar as Spike takes a swig from the flask, and uses the shot to blow out an extra-potent fireball.

Steve walks off, waving casually over his shoulder. "Good battle, now get back home ya little jerkoff."

"Screw you." The kid says as he walks sulkily back towards Viridian.

Hell yeah! Being a pokemon trainer rules! Steve thinks he should've done this years ago!

Steve starts getting Charmander to battle trainers as he continues deeper into the forest. He gets the Nidorans to fight a little ways behind. The two seem eager to out battle the other, so for the moment there's no clear winner.


Steve decides this may be a decent time to give Amber a call. After all, he just found a pretty unusual pokemon. He uses the pokedex to give Amber a call (Because the pokedexes can totally do that apparently, new feature or something) and there's a few rings before she answers.

"Hello? Steve?" calls Amber's voice. She sounds nervous, but cheerful.

"Hey Amber. I just caught a pokemon normally found around Johto here in Viridian Forest. When you guys come through you may want to be on the lookout."

"Oh, thank you for telling us! You're so considerate! We're staying in Viridian for the night, so we'll probably search the place tomorrow morning."

"Maybe we could... compare pokemon in Pewter City or something?" Steve hazards. "Get something to eat together?

Steve can practically hear the blush in Amber's voice. "I-I'd like that. L-let me give you a calltomorrowbye!" Amber says the last part in a breathless rush, and the pokedex stops the call. Steve replaces his pokedex as Charmander finishes up another Trainer.

Well, lets keep going.

Hrm, maybe have the sheep(I still can't remember which pokemon that is) and Slowpoke spar? After all, the sheep is resistant to water, whereas Slowpoke is the opposite. Plus, Slowpoke really needs the exercise and training, just in case we need him at Pewter.

Steve doesn't really know how to get hookers. He also doesn't know if Spike would be weirded out by a human female. Of course, Steve's down for a hooker if one can be found.


That's right, there might not even be a need for masturbation! Steve's got a date with Amber tomorrow, hopeflly! Steve doesn't know... well, anything at all about Amber, but he's willing to learn.

Why not use the coffee (both for yourself, and when your pokemon get too fatigued to fight effectively), and continue fighting everything you see in the forest while you finish travelling through it.

You will get to Pewter only a few hours later than you would have if you had traveled there without delay, and you will have more battle savvy pokemon as a result of the extra time, as well as more money from those stupid bug trainer pokemon. I mean, Metapods? Seriously?

OH WAIT. Other than Slowpoke, we don't have any pokemon with moves effective against Rock.

Well, we could ask at the Pokecenter if they saw Cory, and what pokemon he had (nice to get to know a rival better)

I see no reason to not just save our money and sleep in the pokecenter while everyone gets patched up, but lets get some more coffee for the next day so that we can re-energize Slowpoke when it is Gym battle time.

And in the Pokemon center, lets give our pokes a little speech about resting up, tomorrow we get to challenge talented trainers (imply to the Nidoran that if they try hard enough tomorrow, they might get a little closer to catching Spike)

When spending the night at the pokecenter, ask them to wake you relatively early (and have a solid whiskey nightcap outside the building to help with early rising), so that we can head towards the entrance to Viridian Forest and engage in training for Spike, the Nidoran and Mareep until Amber and Judy show up (thus further improving Amber and Judy's opinions of our sincerity as a trainer) That way we can also spend time chatting while we all head to the pokecenter to get our pokemon restored, and then also head to the gym together.

Steve lets out Charmeleon, but the guy's on top of a roof. He couldn't immediately toast him if he wanted to. Zealot doesn't seem concerned, and lazily draws out a pokeball as Steve takes a swig from the bottle. "Well? Talk then."

"I s-saw you yesterday. You were quite the r-rude boy. It's amazing that w-we're the ones wanted by the law and yet y-you manage to cause so much death and m-misery."

"Fuck you! I don't care what you think!" Steve yells, getting annoyed at this fruit.

Zealot doesn't seem to notice, and rolls the pokeball in his gloved hand as he speaks further "I also s-saw those girls you spoke with. C-creamy skin. That one with the g-glasses is nice and perky isn't she? I w-want to lick all up and down those pretty t-thighs. Her sister is young but f-feisty. Of c-course that would only sweeten the p-pot. Sisters..." the Rocket dissolves into giggles.

Um... Steve's a bit weirded out. He kind of doesn't know what to say. Zealot is keeping his eyes fixed directly on Steve, as if drinking in the discomfort.

We need to get him off the roof.

'Look, maybe if your organization didn't follow the same rules that led to its destruction before, I would have joined instead of doing what I did. But come on, who would trade a fire pokemon capable of becoming a powerful Charizard, as well as all their other pokemon, for a Zubat? It just doesn't make sense.

Look, I'm sorry that your guy ended up where he did (mentally: NO YOU AREN'T), but I am fairly attached to my critters. If you want to talk about what happened, could you at get off that building? My neck is very stiff from sleeping at an odd angle, and I would prefer to not have to look upwards so.'

Do not attack him before he comes off the roof. None of your pokemon have and long range abilities yet, and his pokeball looks fairly choice, so he could well have a bruiser inside of it. So you need him on ground level so that when you abruptly release all your pokemon, have them attack him and try to brain him with the whisker bottle.

Alternatively, find some way to idle closer to him, and then dump your whisker all over him, call out charmander and have him light the fucker up.

Steve decides to try getting this guy talking while he reaches around for another pokeball. He's watching Steve very intently. "Look, maybe if your organization didn't follow the same rules that led to its destruction before, I would have joined instead of doing what I did.

Zealot moves almost too fast to see. Steve is shocked to see a quivering knife planted directly into Slowpoke's pokeball. Steve tries to press the button a few times, but nothing doing. Zealot puts his hands back in his robe and looks down at Steve. Steve gets the impression the man is smiling. "N-no, that'd be cheating, S-Steve. Remember, it's one P-Pokemon per battle at a time, right? Plus I'm not here to b-battle you just yet. I never said I d-dislike you. In fact you're quite f-fascinating.

'If I had set out when I was younger, I would never have had the chance to challenge Blue and Red now that they have become powerful. Several trainers have beaten the Elite Four, but how many can claim to have bested Red? And Blue has also bested the Elite Four before. Imagine that, I can fight someone stronger than the Elite Four before I even get there!

"Hey I'm not dumb! I left later because I just didn't give a crap! Now I can drink and swear and I'm bigger than everyone else! I'm a classy man with a classy dress sense, not like you and your all black getup and stupid mask. Plus, now that I'm leaving later than Red, Green and Blue I get a chance to beat their asses in their prime!" Steve takes a moment to let the words sink in before continuing. "Do you think Team Rocket can ever fully recover without changing radically anyhow? I mean, didn't you guys get disbanded twice?"

Zealot turns his head nearly 90 degrees to the side. Steve gets the feeling that the person behind the mask is smiling wildly. "No, w-we could not have recovered without reform, you're quite right. We g-gave it the reform it needed. The R-Rockets were a silly organization with n-no real sense of how the world w-worked. We have come and r-revitalized the place with new th-thinking."

"New thinking like what?" Steve asks, not liking where this is headed.

"K-Killing people who get in the way of our organization. S-Some of the old grunts we have w-working for us don't seem so comfortable about it. They'll l-learn."

Steve is feeling distinctly uncomfortable. "So... you're going to kill me then?"

"N-no. I'm m-much too interested in y-you to be ending this game now. Go and get your little b-badges. I'll be watching you. And those l-lovely little girls too. I s-saw it in your eyes too, you know. The lust. You can just imagine c=cupping their soft flesh and hearing the moans escape from b-breathless lungs..." Zealot shivers and lets out a soft moan that makes Steve break out in goosebumps.

Spike is snarling at Zealot, who is casually holding a knife in his free hand as he stares back. Steve... doesn't know what to do here at all. It's obvious this guy wants to talk, but for what purpose but to taunt him he doesn't know. Steve thinks this guy is basically 100% crazy.

'Well, being more pragmatic about how you approach threats is fine and all, but doesn't that mean you attract a great deal more police attention, what with all the killing? How is such reform beneficial to the team?'

He wants to talk, let him talk. Maybe we can learn something useful. Besides, the more a psychopath likes you, the less likely they are to kill you without warning (most of the time).

"Um... how do you change the facial expression on your mask?" Steve asks slowly, noticing that a smile has appeared on Zealot's face.


"Plus, Well, being more pragmatic about how you approach threats is fine and all, but doesn't that mean you attract a great deal more police attention, what with all the killing? How is killing people a good idea? Oh, and by the way, why do you have a different outfit from the Team Rocket norm?" Steve asks, trying to keep the guy talking in hopes that he'll learn something useful.

Zealot's head, at a 90 degree angle, suddenly turns completely upside-down. There's a loud and sickening cracking grind of bone as the mask splits into a huge grin. "W-what mask? And you w-want to know what I th-think of the authorities? Well I l-left you a present in the f-forest. When you get in there take a R-right and head for the l-largest tree you see with w-white bark. The k-killing shows people that I am s-serious, Steve. With p-pokemon I do what I l-like. Murder... arson... r-rape... how much did you like little Amber anyhow?"

Zealot's mask tilts a bit, giving his grotesquely upside-down head a look at his black robe. "And I dress how I like because the peasant does not tell the King how to dress."


Steve thinks any kind of outright violence here would be a bad idea. Honestly Steve is wavering between running in terror, an urge to punch the guy for the comments he's making and a strange compulsion to ask more questions. He feels a bit like a Stantler in some headlights.

'I thought you said you were a general, now you say you are a king. Which is it, or are you both?

And here is a question for you, one tjat jas been bugging me for a while now. Why is it any time some sort of organisation, be it Team Rocket, Team Magma, Team Aqua, Team Galactic or anyone else, the moment they start getting close to acheiving their goals, a trainer, usually prepubescent, shows up, finds out about their plans, and manages to stop them becuase they never run into a threat so far out of their league that they can't win? Always, the kid is faced with the weakest mooks and officers first, and just manages to scrape by. I mean, even Giovanni used weaker pokemon the first few times he fought Red, whereas if he used his strongest from the beggining, it is unlikely the kid would have won. And there are several legendary pokemon that people try to use to conquer/destroy the world, but everytime they get close, the same thing happens: A prepubescent kid shows up and stops them right in the nick of time. Something is wrong if stuff like that keeps happening.'

Look confused for a moment.

'Why do I know Giovanni took it easy on Red the first time he met him?'

Hopefully, all of a sudden laying out all this relatively heavy will somewhat unsettle Zealot. He isn't killing you right now because you are interesting, and someone who knows things they have no way to know is certainly interesting.

Shake your head and then finish with,

'Well, how about this question: If you keep such a close eye on things, what is Cory up to?'
No. 37722 ID: fdc826

Steve's feeling a bit weak at the knees, and isn't sure he's up too a full speech. He does think to ask one thing, however. "If you keep such a close eye on things, what is Cory up to?"

"a-alive and well for n-now. I'm n-not into boys as a r-rule but I could make an e-exception for you Steve. W-would you like me to?"


Steve decides to just run. Turning on his heels, Steve bolts away as fast as his legs can carry him. He hears Zealot's mocking laughter the whole way, but the man doesn't try and follow. Steve guesses that's probably a relief.


After reviewing the speech Zealot gave, Steve has a terrible sinking feeling in his stomach. He quickly calls Amber. The line rings a couple times on the other end before picking up. "Steve?" Asks the VERY welcome sound of Amber's voice. "Hello?"

"Amber! Thank god.. look, where are you and Judy?"

"Steve? Is everything ok? We're in Viridian Forest, heading to Pewter. We stopped for lunch. Steve, what's wrong? You sound out of breath and terrified!"

"Um, nothing is going on. I'm... heading to Viridian Forest. Watch out for strange people in the area. Call me if anything happens bad at all." teve says quickly, and hangs up before Amber can ask anything else.

What should Steve do now? Head to Viridian Forest to see Amber and the... the... "present"... or go to the police station?

Turn around and look at Zealot. Then recall Spike.

'It seems we will part for the time being. But I imagine we will see each other again, whether I want to or not. I wonder what will happen next time...'

Don't try and make it threatening, just state it. You know this guy is dangerous, has taken an interest in you, and is pretty good at stalking. Communicate to him you are aware that he intends to bump into you in the future.

Then leave the area.

On the way to Viridian Forest, call out Spike, and the Nidoran (since they also seem competitive) and get them up to date on what happened. Give them a speech, something like.

'Originally, I wanted you all to get stronger just so that we could eventually challenge the Elite Four and make ourselves known.

Now.... this Zealot guy has taken an interest in us, and has no real issue with murder. And he threatens harm for anyone we know. We don't just need to get stronger for ourselves, we need to get stronger to protect those around us.'

Keep both Nidoran and Spike out of their pokeballs, and from now on keep them outside their pokeballs. You don't know when this guy will show up again, but you won't be caught unawares again.

Have the three fight every wild pokemon they see (no Flask use for Spike) as they follow you into Viridian Forest to meet with Amber and Judy. Every bit of experience is precious when a madman is stalking you.

When you catch up to them, have Slowpoke's knifed pokeball ready to back up your story about how much bad news this guy is.

And DEFINITELY put police on speed dial. Should probably call them and let them know you saw someone calling himself Zealot in Pewter with a rough description, and that he seemed very suspicious while you make your way to Viridian Forest.

Steve turns around to look at Zealot, maybe say something else, but he's gone like smoke.


Steve decides to head right for the present in the forest before calling the police, though he does set them up on speed dial. After all, Steve's pretty sure he's going to have to contact someone soon. Steve releases the nidorans, and the four run the whole way to Viridian Forest.

For a moment Steve doesn't think he'll be able to find the present.. but then he spots a white-barked tree. Coming closer, Steve sees a truly horrific sight. He recognizes the woman stuck to the tree as an Officer Jenny, but she's dead. Really dead. There's 8 knives all over her body, two in the eyes, that are keeping her pinned off the ground. Blood is still flowing from the wounds, and Steve gets the impression this was recent.

Yeah, Steve thinks it's just time to call the police. He calls at once, and a male voice picks up. "Pewter Police Department."

"Yes, um, I'm... I found someone, but it's really bad. I... uh..." Steve stammers, not really knowing what to say.

"Calm down son. Who did you find?" The voice is serious, yet suddenly more alert.

"Officer Jenny. She..."

"Jenny! Thank god. She disappeared without a trace this morning! Never signed out of her shift or anything."

"She's dead." Steve says, feeling a weight on his heart as the man's relief turns bitter and cold.

"I... I see. Are you sure? Where are you?"

"I'm sure. The white tree outside of town, take a right. Does the name Zealot mean anything?"

The voice on the line draws in a sharp breath. "We'll be right there. Don't move. If you see someone who is not a police officer, run." The line goes dead after a frantic moment of movement on the phone, and the beginning of a raised voice.

Steve puts the phone away, and looks back at the grotesque gift he has been left. A flash of yellow catches his eye next to the corpse. Gingerly, Steve removes it and reads. "Steve. Only one thing is true. You and I have realized the truth of rules in this world. They are there to keep the others happy. To put a sense of law and order into everyone's life without needing to really do anything at all. People like you and I, we see the world differently. We shape the rules, or break them in order to win. I see myself in you. When you are not violent you are lusty, and when out of lust you seem to rely on anger. I call you bloodbrother. I would never hurt my brother, don't worry. You aren't naughty, you are just bad and dumb. This girl was naughty. NaughtyNaughtyNaughty. Don't worry about her, brother. -Zealot"


Steve... sits down and takes a drink as he rubs the bridge of his nose. This certainly got real, all right. The nidorans are still fighting in the background, and only Spike seems to notice that something has happened. Either those nidoran just love fighting each other or they just don't care.

Steve quickly feeds the note to Spike. No need for the police to be asking questions too awkward.


Steve calls his pokemon over for a quick word. "Look, do you guys see that dead girl? She's the reason you guys need to train a lot harder now. Spike, I think you know who I'm talking about. There's a guy who's a psycho who's apparently taken an interest in me. You guys need to really kick it up a notch."

Steve calls Amber, and tells her that he'll be waiting near the Pewter/Viridian Forest border. He also tells her to NOT stop for any suspicious trainers at all. Amber doesn't ask questions, but instead agrees and accepts Steve's promises that he'll explain everything once they're here.

The two policemen show up after only a minute or two longer. The younger policeman, a guy around Steve's age wearing shorts, just vomits at the scene. The older man takes off his hat, and stares at the sight with horror on his face. "Dear God." Says the man with the pants, as his partner wipes his mouth clean. "We... we better... dear God..." he says, seeming lost for words.

Get the police to establish you as just some kid who got a little too curious about something weird happening. Do your best to answer any questions to corroborate your story that you just saw Zealot wandering around (don't call him Zealot until the police do), so that you can get out of here as fast as possible. Even comment on how waiting here for the police has really made you uncomfortable, what with the officer staked to the tree, and you would really like to get far away from here.

"'I...I saw that guy with the red mask and knives in Pewter, muttering something about having fun in the forest." Steve begins. "I was worried, what with the knives and mask and all, so I came out here to make sure that everything was alright... what kind of monster is this guy?"

"Can I have a swig of that bottle there?" Asks the older policeman, completely ignoring the question for the moment. Steve wordlessly passes the bottle over and the guy takes a long pull. "You're probably one of the luckiest trainers alive. Most people who see Zealot never... well, most people only HEAR that he exists is I guess what I'm getting at. this is terrible. The worst murder we've had since... hell before I joined the force... look kid we'e got your pokedex number from when you called earlier. Why not head back to town. I'll make sure you get a hotel room for the night. We may have to ask you a few more questions, but for the time being we don't need you here to see more of this."

Steve leaves with hardly another word. He can see the older policeman putting on a white rubber glove as he VERY gingerly begins to check around the body.

After trudging through the woods in silence for a few minutes, watching his pokemon beat up random wild pokemon, he comes across Amber and Judy. The girls have not noticed him yet.

"WHY are we even waiting for this loser?" Judy asks, sounding exasperated as she looks towards Pewter, obviously eager to get going.

"Steve sounded really worried earlier. I think we should just wait a few more minutes for him. There could be some dangerous pokemon running around!"

"Hmmph. Or he just wants to grope you, Amber. I don't see what you see in him."

Steve decides to walk up behind Judy, but not try to mask his presence. He puts the alcohol away.

"Look, I don't know what you expect to get out of him!" Judy continues as Steve gets closer. "This story of his is probably just bull! I'm telling you it's like mom says, the boy's only after you for..."

"Hello, Steve!" Amber says loudly and awkwardly, waving to Steve once she notices him. She blushes heavily, half from embarrassment it seems.

Judy whirls around, face red as she glares up at Steve. "H-hey! Well looks like you finally showed up!"


Steve decides to pretend like he missed the conversation. "Good afternoon, Judy! Amber, it's great to see you too. I was concerned for your safety, I'm glad I got here in time. there's been a criminal in the area it seems."

"Criminal?" both girls ask at once, Judy skeptical and Amber worried.

Steve holds up Slowpoke's pokeball. "There's been a man in the area who has no problem using weapons against trainers. I barely made it out myself. Someone apparently got injured nearby. I guess I was lucky not to have gotten hurt."

Judy keeps her face screwed up in a tight show of annoyance, but Steve can see her eyes widen as she sees the knife driven into the pokeball. Amber looks positively horrified. "Oh Steve that's so awful! I'm so glad you were thinking of us. Imagine what would have happened if he's found us! I'm just glad you didn't get hurt yourself."

Judy snorts and turns away from Steve. "Well, let's get to a pokemon center. We've got to heal up. Maybe we can still take the Gym Challenge before it closes tonight." Judy marches a bit ahead of the group as the three of them set off.

Amber drops back a bit to walk next to Steve. "Are you sure you're not hurt? And did the police catch that man yet? Oh, I'm sorry I'm fussing over you. I don't mean to do that."
No. 38373 ID: 6164e0

'Its alright. It makes me happy that you care enough to worry about me.'

Pause for just a second, giving Amber a knowing look.

'After all, I'm just a trainer your sister happens to know. You must be a really kind person.

But really, I'm just relieved that neither of you were hurt. Apparently the criminal has attacked people before, so of course I was worried for you and your sister.'

Then, before Judy can fuck things up by interjecting some bit of assholery,

'So, did you guys find any unusual pokemon in the forest?'

"'Its alright. It makes me happy that you care enough to worry about me. After all, I'm just a trainer your sister happens to know. You must be a really kind person. I just wanted to warn you guys about the criminal so you wouldn't get hurt, but now that you're with me, you couldn't be in better hands." Steve says, and feels proud of himself when Amber blushes and doesn't seem to know what to say. "After all, I don't mind when hot chicks with nice tits fuss over me."

There's a moment where Steve has a chance to reflect on how unwise the statement he just uttered was before Amber processes it. She flushes red and looks upset, though Steve can't help notice that she looks just a bit happy at the compliment. "W-what?! I... um... you're a jerk!" Amber picks up her pace to catch up to Judy, while Steve is left walking behind the two as they whisper to each other and very pointedly do not look back.


Well, Steve is nearing Pewter City. Amber turns to face Steve once they're in sight of the Pokemon Center, and stiffly thanks him for his help. The two girls begin to walk off.

Steve, note to self, 'tact' should be applied when interacting with Amber from now on, or we're never getting to actually do anything with those tits.

We can still recover this if the next time we talk we apologize first thing for objectifying her, and say we were still shaken up from the guy who attacked us, and weren't thinking as clearly as we would like. LOOK REALLY FUCKING SAD RIGHT HERE.

Anyway, I say go to the Pokemon center (which is probably where they are going.) so follow along. When you hand in your pokeball to get it fixed, that could be a good time to try and apologize.

If Judy is a little ass to you when you apologize, TAKE IT, don't retort or get pissed off, say you deserve it, you said something really stupid.

This can still be salvaged.

Steve goes to get his pokeball repaired, not relishing the meeting with the girls inside.

Sure enough, they're both glaring at him with crossed arms as Steve hands over his pokemon.


"Look I'm sorry... I was kind of a jerk back there..."

"You're darn right you were!" Judy pipes up. "It's like I said the whole time, you're only after one thing!"

Steve takes a breath. "I deserve that. I did something pretty damn stupid. I really am sorry. This whole attack has left me with no sleep... plus sometimes when I'm around pretty women my mouth runs away with itself." Steve notices that Amber blushes pink, and she tries to look extra surly to cover it up. "I'll just... go then" Steve says, as the Nurse puts Steve's pokeballs on the counter.

"You do that!" Judy yells nastily, enjoying the expression on Steve's face.

Steve gathers his pokeballs as the two girls whisper, and he silently begins to leave when Amber finally speaks up. "H-hey, good luck." There's another whispered phrase. "O-or whatever!" Amber adds without much rancor. When Steve looks back Amber is blushing heavily and not looking in Steve's direction.
No. 40065 ID: 6164e0

Don't say anything, just smile back while still looking a bit apologetic. Even if it doesn't look like she's looking at you, she might catch it. Then walk out the door.

Steve looks back, but only catches Amber's eye for a second as he walks off. Steve gets another dose of coffee from the pokemart and goes to the Pewter City Gym!

Steve boldly flings open the door! "Alright motherfucker, are you ready?" Steve has already been drinking a bit in preparation.

There is a guy in the middle of the gym who stands up. "My name is Brock, and I accept your challenge!" He says other stuff too about teaching new trainers about the path and wisdom and love of pokemon, but Steve can blow that garbage out of his ass.

"Whatever! How's this going down?!" Steve asks.

"2 on 2!" Brock responds. "Go, Kabuto!"

Alright! His first Gym Battle! Who should Steve use first?
No. 40318 ID: f4963f

Kabuto is NOT something we want against our fire-type. The elements double-screw us.

Other than them, we have a disobedient Grimer, two Nidorans who seem to be competetive with one another, a slowpoke, and a Mareep.

Kabuto's water element makes it weak to electricity, and rock is neutral to electricity. As counter-intuitive as it would normally be in a rock gym, let's send out Mareep. Er, weird sheep thing. You know. The THING.
No. 40333 ID: 6164e0

Yeah, Mareep, AKA That fucking fuzzy thing, is going to be at an advantage SO LONG AS YOU ATTACK IMMEDIATELY. Check the pokedex before pulling it out to double check what electric moves it knows, and as soon as it is out of the pokeball use anything electrical that is NOT thunder wave.

Steve decides to send out the stupid looking thing. According to the pokedex, it has the moves Screech, Tackle, Thunder Wave and Thundershock.

"Thundershock!" Steve commands, right as Brock commands, "Harden!"

"That... didn't work for the kid in the forest either." Steve comments as Kabuto gets a serious shock treatment. Brock ends up returning his pokemon with an annoyed look on his face.

"Well, let's see if your Mareep can stand up to by best pokemon! Onix!" Brock says, releasing the huge rock snake.

Steve doesn't know what this "Mareep" is, but he'll be damned if he loses to some big rocky penis! What should Steve do now?!

Steve brings back the stupid looking thing, and sends out Slowpoke!

"Onix, Bind!" Brock commands, and the rock snake reaches out and scoops up Slowpoke into a grinding embrace. Steve looks at his pokedex. Slowpoke knows: Water Gun, Zen Headbutt, Yawn, confusion and tackle. Steve doesn't know what attack he should tell his semi-retarded pokemon to use!

Onix is super weak to grass so have Bulbasaur use-


Anyway, use water gun. Water beats rock.

Use the Coffee like a potion. Brock has to let you do that for your turn, and as you give it to slowpoke, order him (quietly) to use watergun on the big rock snake over and over as fast as he can. With the coffee accelerating his response time to not suck so bad, this should be over shortly.

Steve throws Slowpoke the coffee! Slowpoke barely catches it in his mouth and rinks it down as the rock snake crushes harder!

"Water gun!" Steve commands, and Slowpoke shoots out... a dinky little stream of water. Well how the fuck is that supposed...

"GRAAAAH" Onix yells as it crashes to the ground. Steve... is amazed. HE also thinks Pokemon are just a little bit stupider than just a moment ago.

"Well, I am impressed! It's clear that you are a..." Steve tunes Brock out as he considers stealing the gym leader's pokemon for a moment too. Nah, probably video cameras. "...and so I award you with this Boulder Badge!"

"Thanks blindy. Look this is gonna sound mean but your pokemon fucking suck. Maybe you need to man up or something."

Brock looks offended. "What? Hey... get the hell out of my Gym!"

Steve leaves without another word. Well that was sort of exciting. Now what?

We should consider adding a thermos of coffee to our regular inventory. You have enough money for that?

Send Amber a message that if she challenges the Gym right now the leader's pokemon are weakened, and what his pokemon are. A purely business message.

Steve is pretty drunk and he's still sure that's not how Pokemon work.


Steve does decide to give Amber a call. Surprisingly, she answers. "Hello Steve." She is awfully formal.

"Hello Amber." Steve can't help but mock Amber's serious tone just a bit. "I have just finished my Gym battle with Brock. Judy should have no problems what with Squirtle. He used a Kabuto, so you may want to tell her to watch out."

Steve can swear he hears Amber stifle a giggle on the line, but when she speaks she sounds serious and aloof. "Yes. I'll let Judy know. Thank you Steve."

"I'll give a call later to let you know I'm alive!" Steve promises. "Good luck with the gym!"

"Oh..." Amber starts, and the hard edge to her voice fades from her voice for a moment. "Be careful Steve." There's a whispering on the phone, then Amber curtly says "Good night!" and the phone hangs up.


Alright! On to the next town! Steve has the nagging feeling he left something behind, but he's sure it'll come to him tomorrow.

Going East of town, Steve finds, blocking his path, what a sign calls Mt. Moon. Steve takes a drink as he considers. There's a path around the mountain, or he could go through. It IS late... what should Steve do?

There IS a pokemon center, but Steve's really not that tired right now. He DID wake up around noon, one o'clock after all. He decides to get his pokemon healed before doing something however.

Through the mountain is a man's way! Besides, you might find some new mon, or at least train up your existing ones.

Some rock-types exist in the mountain. That should be a good opportunity to level up Slowpoke. Spike can take out anything else easy enough.
No. 41157 ID: 6164e0

You know what must be done.

Through the mountain, like only the manliest do.

On the way through the mountain, have spike and the two nidoran out at all times. Have them beat the shit out of any pokemon you encounter with two exceptions.

Geodude: Have all three gang up on it, or if absolutely necessary, call out Slowpoke, have the other three back off, and hit it with watergun.

Clefairy (stupid pink thing): catch that shit, give as present to Amber.

Otherwise, leave a trail of unconscious pokemon and bested trainers in your wake as you journey through the mountain. Keep an eye out for Moon Stones, those things are useful as hell.

That said, rationing our pokéballs for cute pink things and/or particularly interesting specimens sounds like a better deal now. If we want to go for 100% completion, we can always backtrack when we have more balls.

Steve decides to certainly not capture the stupid-looking bat. Turns out there's a fuckton of stupid-looking bats, so while Steve battles his way through Slowpoke's getting REAL good at using confusion.

There's trainers along the way too of course. After one particularly tough one with two Hikers, each using Geodudes, both Nidoran evolve! At the same time! How convenient!

Walking down the hallway and congratulating the two newly evolved pokemon, Steve can see a crack in the wall, opening up onto a side path that looks to go deeper into the mountain. Stay on the path with more trainers, or head deeper into the mountain... hmm...
No. 41235 ID: 6164e0

If you find Moon Stones, you can immediately evolve the Nidorina and Nidorino into Nidoqueen and Nidoking here and now.

Those are some pretty powerful pokemon. I say go deeper, since it is deep in the mountain you have the best chance to find some Moon Stones.

Also tell spike that they are starting to catch up. Better work even harder if he doesn't want them to surpass him.
No. 41249 ID: f4963f

But doesn't evolving them prematurely stunt their attack list growth? There's a ton of moves that Nidorino and Nidorina learn that their highest tiers don't learn.

No, if you find a Moonstone, do this - tell the two of them that you'll evolve whichever of them proceeds to learn its new attacks the fastest. Watch their competition escalate.

As for the actual choice? DEEPER, BABY. Who knows what we'll find in the mountain? I bet it'll be cool, though.

Steve reaches for his bottle, but it's smashed on the floor from somewhere during the drop. Steve guesses he's lucky to be alive. In hindsight, going off the beaten trail in a mountain may not be such a good idea.

Call up to Spike to jump down.

From now on, keep him close so you can actually see.

Keep an eye out for those Moon Stones, and as >>41249

I agree with the prior poster. Send out some mon to fight, run forward and snatch the crystal for yourself.

Don't let any of the mon touch it! Except maybe Spike.

Steve decides to do a quick 3 on 3 pokemon battle. He send out Slowpoke and Mareep, and commands them after the smaller ones as Charmeleon goes for the large one.

The small ones start running as soon as they see the other pokemon coming. Mareep shocks one with thunder wave, stopping it cold. Slowpoke... is stupid and can't catch up to the other. Oh well.

The big pink thing shakes its' fingers, and as Spike sprays a gout of fire, so does the big thing! It seems like a contest of who's gonna give up first, and spike seems to have the advantage.


Steve saunters up and plucks up the rock. Nice move. So, there's two pokemon left, the big pink thing and one small pink thing. Should he capture one or both?

Eventually he find it. A thick, running stream of water roaring along. Steve has the option here of going left or right. To the right, Steve believes there is a slight incline leading up.

Steve enters a completely dark room. He can barely see a blue glow and a faint figure down below. He can hear muttering, though he can't make out any words even when he lies down on his stomach and holds his head over the edge.

"Hey there buddy!" Steve says loudly. The thing stops mumbling and turns swiftly to face Steve. The eyes are suddenly tinged with red. "You look a bit down! Want a drink?"

"Human?!" the thing says, and Steve can tell by the voice it isn't happy. Steve is suddenly thrown backwards as a huge blast of blue energy lifts him off his feet and slams him into the far rock wall. The bottle in his hand shatters under the assault, and Steve can feel his hand bleeding even as he realizes his cigar is gone.

"Fuck you, they're not my slaves!" Steve yells, even though they kinda are.

Steve sends out Slowpoke and the stupid-looking-thing first! Psychic pokemon are resistant to psychic or something, Steve remembers. Mewtwo picks up the pokemon with his mind almost at once. Slowpoke struggles, then starts moaning a faint "pooooke" noise of pain. Mewtwo grins as he slowly milks his superiority. The stupid-looking things shoots electricity at it, but it doesn't seem to be hurting it much.

Steve releases Spike. "Look buddy... this is a big deal... I think this pokemon wants to kill me." Spike perks up, and his eyes narrow at Mewtwo. "You don't have to help me though. I don't think he wants to hurt all of you guys, he's just doing this to fuck with me."

Spike doesn't seem to care. He snarls as he takes a pull from his flask...

Um, both of those balls disappeared after Steve caught those pokemon. All he has are Stupid-looking thing, Grimer, Spike, Slowpoke, Nidorino and Nidorina.


Steve send in all his remaining pokemon! Slowpoke isn't moving at all, so Steve figures it's passed out. He returns it.

Mewtwo simply snatches Spike out of the air! As the lizard flails in pain, it still manages to launch a streak of fire at Mewtwo. Unfortunately, the big guy doesn't even seem too fazed. Mewtwo also grabs Grimer off the ground with a strange blue force, and begins eyeing stupid-looking thing as he summons a ball of energy. Steve... thinks he's pretty fucked.

You're right, you're right... Brother could be bleeding or something. I can't tell that exactly. I will let him live for the present moment.


I DO however deliver a swift kick to his stomach and steal his glasses. Fool. Bloody fool. Nearly all the people in this world don't even deserve the power they wield. The urge to plunge the knife into his heart is strong. Like with all people I can hear his blood singing in his veins. The song is strongest around the heart. It would be so easy to... stop that song...

I must continue on. Badbadbad. Mother only touched the nicest of boys. I reach a crack in the wall. I can hear the faint song of his blood down below. The ringing melody of his life. Oooooooh brother..... brotherbrotherbrotherbrother if you are dead I will end a symphony.

There is a hole in the room beyond the crack. I slide down, and catch the edge at the bottom. Now, the only question in my mind is where to bring Brother when I reach him.

Those others. Those girls. They drive him mad. He is concerned for them, tries to save them from me and they SPURN? Brother is too good for those two. WHORE. SLUT. BADBADGIRLSBAD. Soft skin and soft breasts and soft thighs and soft hair but with nasty black souls. I bring a hand up to my mouth, and bite down on the fleshy part until I can control my temper.

I suppose he's not QUITE ready yet. I will leave him for now.

The song is strong in this cave. I can hear the faint noises of something making a snarling noise down below. I ready a knife. Nothing down there is worse than me.

Death... death is what I had planned for the other new one from Pallet. Cory. He has potential. Not in the way brother does. I can feel his melancholy is a mask he wears. A lie for others. He has nearly as much ambition as Brother. If directed well he could be useful.

Brother too must be molded. As I must mold to him. I will sculpt my flesh in the epitome of that which I see within him.

Wandering thoughts. Errant dreams. Faded memories, burnt hard into the mind like a scar. Unanswered questions. How should I get down from here, voices?

Yes, I have pokemon who could ring Brother up. I'll do that. The slope for now is even enough to take on foot. I do so.

When I get to the bottom I see Brother. His pokemon are scattered around him, none moving. Things are very quiet around here. This place makes me edgy. Brother's song is not waning. I can hear the singing of his blood right now. The crescendo that is his heart thunders out a tune to me, an orchestra that drowns out everything else.

What now? Any Questions? Anything else I should check? Go right to Brother?
No. 44445 ID: 6164e0

The pokemon are part of his strength. Check them, see how they fare. If he loses them, his lust for power might lessen, so preserving their existence is as important as keeping brother alive. If necessary, use potions or other restoratives to insure their survival, then return them to their pokeballs, and place the pokeballs back on brother's person.

After all, when he wakes up, having them will put his mind at ease, and only reassure brother that his thoughts are right, that his lust for power will not steer him wrong.

And we WANT brother to lust for as much power as possible, right?

I check Brother's fallen pokemon. Seems his Charmeleon, Mareep and Nidorino will do just fine, they've just taken quite a beating. I'll go and return them...

Hmm. As I approach Brother's body, his Nidorina gets slowly to her feet and glares at me, placing herself between Brother and I.

Little cheeky bastard. I can hear the song of her heart, and though she is frightened she is also determined. I believe she can smell what I am but does not concern herself.

I am positive I can reach my knife faster than it can attack.

I do deliver it a swift boot to the face, however. It's obviously not expecting the attack, and cries out in pain as blood gushes from her snout. I find Brother's pokeballs and return the stupid thing. I find all the rest of his pokeballs and return the rest as well.

Just me and Brother... I feel, for the first time in a while, a bit more whole.

I know I am not sane. That's the only thing that keeps me completely together. I cannot help but end the songs of the others, for they are just fingernails digging into my spine, but brother's song is different. He is not pure like so many of the others. His heart harbors dark feelings, violent acts and sexual perversions. I drink in the song of his blood with my ear as I lay my head against his heart. For a contented moment, the song is all I comprehend.

Well, I find a pair of shorts in his pocket. I take those, and replace them with a knife. I also summon Tyranitar to help carry Brother out of here.

We reach the path leading out of the cave. This pokemon Brother has caught... will it make Brother strong? Or will it make him complacent? I have great hopes that Brother will treat it correctly.

He can buy another pair of pants. Plus, if I do not have these, how can I truly learn to be more like the man?


Yes I'll keep them. I leave brother on a clif overlooking the city. I can see the glow from the buildings even up here. I return Tyranitar and get ready to...

Yes, I'll go and stir up a bit of antagonism! Perfect. I summon Crobat, and have him bring me down to the ground swiftly. The boy looks up when I land, but he doesn't say anything as I approach. "G-Greetings! You must b-be this C-Cory I've heard s-so much about."

He nods. "Yeah, I'm Cory."

He doesn't seem too concerned at my presence. This doesn't happen often. "I heard your n-name from that t-trainer back in Pewter City, Steve... he's b-been talking quite a lot about y-you, you know. I h-heard him talking to those g-girls about h-how he defeated your B-bulbasaur."

Cory looks completely unfazed. In fact, he looks a little bit bored. "Yeah, I'm not a great trainer. I know that. Also, I don't really care what Steve or those girls think about me. I actually feel bad for Steve. He doesn't have any friends, and he's kind of a drunk. Can I go now? I'd like to get to bed soon."

All possibilities. I'm intrigued.

"T-tell me my b-boy, nothing seems to s-surprise you much. How a-are you such the unf-flappable lad?"

Cory shrugs. I'm interested that he doesn't seem more alarmed. Most people find unease in the mask. I can smell his mind though. Naive. He doesn't think there are people like me. "I mean, if I let things annoy me I'd be annoyed a lot. I just ignore stuff that bothers me, and that's a lot of stuff. I like this pokemon journey so far because it's what I want to do and there's hardly anyone around."


This one might not deserve to die. I guess it wouldn't be easy driving this one to hate Brother. I am honestly at a loss for what to do.

Hrm. This one is tough, boss. It is hard to stir antagonism in one who does not feel frustration or pain.

Best places to find pokemon, where to train them and how to carve dirty whores. After we are through with him he'll be a changed man. Will anybody be able to regonize him then?

Yes of course! I'll bring him along with me... hehehe... I'll teach him all sorts of things! "Y-young man, w-would you mind if I a-accompanied you to the t-town? I'm quite the p-pokemon trainer and c-could give you some t-tips."

Cory shrugs. "Sure thing. It'll be nice to have someone else along I suppose."


Both those badbadbad girls may need to be punished... we can't have some stupid bimbos, some AIRHEADS, some SLUTS to corrupt brother...
