a valid question. probably after there's been poke on poke sex, if that ever happens. i'd say the quest is still young, so not for a while and like with many things not until trapinch has evolved at least once

Vibrava looks adorable. Our lad must be so happy because he finally gets to fly around.
No. 138819 ID: 3184a6

why does it feel like whenever we do what we're suppose to do we get punished for it? Like train and fight to get stronger to evolve, except if you do so everyone will hate you for it if you actually try to win, but if you try and fight "fair" we have no way of winning and getting stronger.

I'm confused, are we suppose to say if we would prefer another scenario to have happened?

the hypothetical scenarios (2 and 3) were insurance against people asking why trapinch didn't do something else besides scenario 1. i also wanted to see if there existed a winning strategy that wasn't accuracy lowering spam. since i spent time on it i put it in the update, perhaps it gives the readers an idea of possible strats they can use in the future

There is no time limit on how fast trapinch needs to achieve his goals, so in order to make the story interesting (in my opinion) there have to be benefits and costs to somewhat impactful decisions. I'd say this is a fairly standard tippler quest trademark. Pokemon quest is more forgiving than my ye olde quests like this isn't working, which had fairly harsh cost benefits as well as a time limit

In the situation from the previous update, let's compare the benefits and costs from each option.

A: Get levels, smeargle is banned afterwards
B: Same as A, but you also give up your chesto to get spheal or breloom to like you more
C: No levels cause you get beat up, spheal has to use her revive, salamence spheal and breloom like you more

D: A, but there has to be something different because it was a creative alternative. i added an extra cost, which is the other pokes are more mad at you (which is understandable because the fight was extra long and painful), but there was also a good benefit in learning more about houndoom which is lore important

gaining levels and advancing the lore outweigh making some folks mald, in my opinion. you can make more effort to apologize and give gifts and it can be remedied.

I think it's more that Gengar is a shit stirrer who gives bad advice on purpose as a joke.
No. 138844 ID: eed583

What's going on? Is there a reason why you made us do a 2v1 against Spheal? That was completely unfair for Spheal! It should've been a 2v2 fight or just a 1v1 with us by ourselves!

it's hard to convey exactly how batshit insanely lucky trapinch's rng has been basically anytime he's used sand attack. he was not supposed to survive that fight, zigzagoon sure, but not him. 1v1 spheal w/ revive trapinch loses 100% of the time. 2v2 with no sand attack is also basically 100% loss because as soon as zig doesn't flinch trapinch gets got. to make things at least open to different results i kept the planned 2v1, which was mentioned several times in the updates preceding this one.

Since folks tried to go for A but with one cheeky sand attack i didn't feel too bad about the result. in the end they got what they were suggesting to get, which was a win from rng.
No. 138847 ID: 0097ed

Sand Attack isn't a move. It's a prayer, a mantra, a way of life. It is the space between the climb and the fall, a knife's edge slicing through the deterministic certainty of our world to create this disparity of despair and hope.

To the crowd, it looks onesided. They cannot see the worlds that never were. But to us, it is the struggle given meaning. As the karp climbs the falls, so too the little dirtbug climbs the sand.

Tippler, do you think you could do a reply to some of the worries I mentioned in the reply RIGHT before you posted? The character has been... awakening to some local social/systemic injustice, I feel.

hello dee951 thank you for reading pokemon quest and being a regular and enthusiastic suggestor.

this is rarer now that im only updating once a day but still possible and i am sorry for your loss. i did still read your suggestion

my dear dee951, what you described for your ideal Pokemon commune is basically what Team Friendlies is. Fights are consensual, Gengar checks in with you after each match to give feedback and healing, salamence has stopped the fight before spheal can be knocked out, and you've told gengar you don't like the crowd heckling you which she immediately took into consideration.
No. 138853 ID: dee951


If Team Friendly is what I was thinking of... than how did things get this bad? How did they get such a bad reputation? How come there wasn't an orientation of Da Rules? How did the culture of fighting for entertainment and this ill-conceived tournament come about? How come there aren't actual pre-fight negotiations on goals and rules and such for the fights? Why is it that being worried about being caught because you spent a lot of time feinted recently is even *a thing*?? It seems to be lacking a lot of... well, structural social support and group oversight that would help those who have been betrayed by individuals going on power trips (ie, human trainers) feel comfortable and at home.

Is it a sort of group that once had these things, but has fallen from it's founding principles??
No. 138861 ID: 00589d

Since the Pokémon quest involves things from Gen 1-3, would that mean that there's a possibility you'd include anything from Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, since they're both Gen 3 games?

It'd be interesting to run into Shadow Pokémon and/or humans that have special devices that allow them to catch Pokémon that are already caught by a trainer!

Colosseum and Gale of darkness are both goated games with enforced double battles, actual move animations, good mechanics, and legit difficulty. sadly growing up i didn't have a game cube and thus my prospective career as a pro melee player was snuffed in the womb. since im not as familiar with the mechanics i didn't want to make things too complicated and mess something up. since you're a pokemon and not catching anyone shadow pokemon mechanics aren't too relevant. the closest thing you got is houndoom

had to do a quick double check of my wording, any pokemon who's your friend can be romanced, the only two exceptions being the designated couple linoone and espeon. salamence is eligible for romancing once he's your good friend. a romanced pokemon might not want to hook up

hello sir, you have finally stumbled upon the angriest person on questden who also heavily regulates their internet experience.

since i've already heard that you've been harassing my friends, i'm not at all interested in being commissioned by you, though kudos for finding the one way to dm me in this day in age, via patreon, where i've now refunded your pledge

I forgot to say, thank you so much for bringing Rhine back for a little spin, he was a fun character and I felt deeply sad when he dissapeared forever without any reconciliation, thinking we would never see him again.

this isn't working thread 1 was simply built different, glad you are happy to see rhine. technically this is him post thread 3 which is how he's met uzak, but honestly the details aren't important

Oh, no, I did mean the end of thread 3, where we sacrificed time spent with him to focus on stopping the villans. It was quite tragic.

oh my bad for misunderstanding. this isn't working thread 3 was simply built different, there deliberately were many forced exclusive time sensitive choices for chuck and folks didn't choose the brotherly bond route.

the fam did all meet up afterwards, but who knows how or if full reconciliation would happen

Do you have a #1 favorite character from Questden?

Out of curiosity, is there a limit to how much Stat Vitamins and X Boosting Items we can consume for permanent effects before seeing diminished to no results?

Did you say that pokemon on average only live up to around 30 years? That kinda sad, but a fair trade off for powers. Does that age limit applies to us too?

If we reach level 100, max out our stats with consumables, and wear a great battle item, would it be possible to 1v1 Groundon for fun?
No. 139348 ID: 9ea24b

fav poke: mewtwo, edgy op cat, what's not to like

fav questden character: besides my own characters probably acid soup lowry

how many stat boosting vitamins can you eat? you can have 51 buffs total and at most 10 for a specific stat going off of hoenn rules. in mystery dungeon it's uncapped which would make things too op and also the calculator wouldn't work

flygon dying in 30 years? yup

can you 1v1 Groudon: there hasn't been a boss fight yet so it hasn't been shown but legendaries are going to deal some multiple 2 or greater of damage and also have buffed health. you need a team of 4 to fight groudon for a reason
