Have you ever stayed up late at night wondering what happened to the This isn't working crew? Do you weep knowing that Rhine never got closure in thread 3? Is your name Silly Zealot?

well you're in luck because i just made a 40 page comic epilogue that you can find here: https://tippler.itch.io/this-isnt-workingcomic

Tippler it seems like you're just ignoring what people want to talk to Latios about and are cherrypicking bits and pieces out of suggestions to make him angry.

my dear sweet myconid, i've missed you terribly, or i guess that's what i'd say if you were him. everyday i weep that i am separated by my greatest love. my biggest fan...one day i'll have to finish catalyst in the most egregious way just to get him to come back.

latios, latias, and deoxys are not currently your pals. any of them would have shoved stetson if they had been randomly selected to do so and latios was actively looking for an excuse to get rid of you in the most recent update.

if you had sought out latios and latias to befriend before the plan to catch deoxys, things would be different now. i think at one point someone had the idea to get latios or latias to volunteer to be caught by stetson, but in the end people went with the faster option of masterballing deoxys, thus the current animosity from those three.

No. 140810 ID: 273c18

You fucking jackass that's not what I was complaining about. Yes, Latios is not our friend. The problem is you aren't using our suggestions you're just picking them apart to fuel the fire, to make things more difficult for no reason. You don't want us to get what we want, even though we're barely asking for anything.
No. 140811 ID: 273c18

Oh and I guess other people are going to be like "why are you so hostile" so let me spell it out:
Tippler is being patronizing, while sidestepping the issue I brought up.
No. 140812 ID: 273c18

You know, I kinda get why you're being like this. This is the last thread, so there should be some sort of significant closing moment like the resolution of a significant conflict, but there's no more plot threads left to tie up except for our disagreement with the legendaries. So from a writer's perspective it's a good idea to make that into the significant conflict, right? Not something that can be resolved easily?

Except, in the process of doing this you're casting the legendaries as bullies with basically no empathy at all for humans, and Latios is weirdly bad at mind-reading*** if that last update is supposed to be taken seriously and not the quest author version of "Nuh uh I throw up a forcefield so your attack doesn't work".
If they generally dislike humans then that would imply bad history with humans, which would imply they know humans are a THREAT. If they know that then they know escalating the situation (by, for instance, almost killing a child) is a terrible idea. The conflict doesn't make any rational sense, even disregarding the credit card thing.

***:(by only reading bits and pieces and assuming the worst instead of, you know, mind-reading a bit more to see if it's that bad... or not assuming the worst because after living so long and reading so many thoughts he would know that people don't act on all their thoughts and people generally want to do the right thing)
IMO psychic types should be generally friendly towards humans, because by being exposed to their unfiltered minds they would be able to see the clear parallels between the minds of humans and the minds of pokemon.
No. 140813 ID: 273c18

Oh right, I should probably ask this here too:
Is there a reason behind blocking all my attempts at fixing/preventing the PC glitch? I have brought up several methods of doing so and none of them were directly addressed in-quest aside from the last comment which was basically "it's not a perfect solution". The goal is to prevent what happened to Gengar from happening to other pokemon. That's it. I don't care about the implication of legendaries being entirely immune to the stasis, because it's clear that they can handle themselves.

I don't agree with pokemon being put in stasis but that is a SEPARATE ISSUE, do you understand?
No. 140815 ID: a7a180

The PC glitch is a nonissue as long as legendaries remain out of the PC box (which they strongly insist on) and no Pokemon are stored in adjacent slots to them. It's already solved. And that's aside from the fact that we already passed a decision gate months ago that put the kibosh to meddling with the PC system.
No. 140816 ID: 273c18

I wasn't aware of the adjacency requirement. Got a link to that?

The decision gate revolved around whether or not to use the PC information to rebel against the humans, not whether to use the PC information at all. The latter case was proved possible when we were able to talk to Lanette about it.
No. 140817 ID: 273c18

Also, since there were no patches after Gengar's incident, that means the problem is not solved and could happen again.
No. 140819 ID: 273c18

Well I guess I don't know if legendaries got more aggressive about keeping eachother out of pokeballs after that...

Ok, I did a quick ctrl+f and found this post
but it's stated as a "theory". Do we have any confirmation of that detail?
No. 140821 ID: f3171e

I understand getting so invested you take things personally, but you gotta chill.

The reason Latios cherry picked thoughts was explained already: he was looking for an excuse to get mad and end the conversation, so of course he's going to use our suggesters' worst intrusive thoughts as an excuse. The answer isn't to get mad, it's to watch our wording and kibosh intrusive thoughts by voting them down. To use discipline as if we were dealing with a literal mind reader, which we are.

The choice was made to take the easy route with the Masterball a long time ago instead of trying to befriend Deoxys before catching him, in hypocrisy to the things we've claimed to be striving for. This is the consequences of our actions.

>The choice was made to take the easy route with the Masterball a long time ago instead of trying to befriend Deoxys before catching him, in hypocrisy to the things we've claimed to be striving for.
You might want to think about that a bit more. We're not trying to get trainers to befriend wild pokemon before capturing them, we're trying to get them to treat their captured pokemon better. We made zero effort to prevent Deoxys from being set free, and an attempt was made at getting them to socialize. That's in line with our stated goals.
No. 140955 ID: 273c18

Regarding the Vaporeon situation:

Well personally I think the main problem with this situation is we don't know exactly what the trainer is planning to do about Vaporeon. The fact that she did anything at all at least means she is at least willing to do something for the sake of appearances, which is probably the best we can do at the moment for the more stubborn trainers.
Secondly, mistreatment like this is happening all over the place. Attempting a direct personal intervention will mean we are likely to be seen as truly stepping outside the bounds of the law instead of just associating ourselves with pokemon that do. That reputation will make it much more difficult to do any of the social outreach or negotiation with human authorities, which means less overall prevention of mistreatment.
Even if talking to Flareon results in more bad news, within the bounds of the law all we can do is try to talk to her again, and she's the kind of person apparently who will complain about harassment to the authorities so that's a brick wall. That's my reasoning anyway. We will find more opportunities to engage directly with misbehaving trainers in the future; those who are earnestly willing to listen are the best case scenario.

i also thought it was in character, and the suggestion never used any specific character names so i had no way of knowing.

don't worry though, it could have a sizeable impact on Steven's impression of you and that's why i put it as an option in the most recent choice

pokemon quest should finish up in a week! im extremely excited. i have promised to finish this short vis novel game im working on (mc pictured) and then i'll start my next bigger quest series which will be as graphically violent as i can stomach

it'll have to follow the constraints of suiting the world/setting, so while it'll be gore for gore's sake it'll be within reason(?). at the very least there won't be any sexual violence or any sex at all.

short visual novel will be short, made in renpy, and have fairy waifus. i have like three themes in all media i create so it'll have those three themes. it is all ages but incidentally it's set in the same setting as edgy quest so it's been a good exercise in planning the magic system out a bit beforehand.

Did we miss out on some sort of really big plotline that would've furthered our goals?
No. 141226 ID: b6ec4d

I'm feeling the Q&A spirit, so here are some questions for ya:

What is your favorite Pokemon from a later gen that you would have liked an excuse to draw if not for the gen 3 cap?

Who was personally your favorite 'mon to write for?

Do you think the Friendlies get up to anything else interesting down the line? Maybe some grand heists or other big plays to try and change society?

Do you ever wish the audience had picked a different Pokemon for the protagonist to become, or were there any you are incredibly happy not to have been stuck with?

If we were doing Nuzlock rules and you HAD to nickname all your Pokemon, what would you go with? (You can just stick to the most important ones, say Flygon, Smeargle, and Gengar)?
No. 141227 ID: b8122b

What kind of obstacles would there have been if the more violent revolution route was chosen?

from nostalgia, definitely vaporeon by default. i spent a unmerited amount of time thinking about what submissive constitutes outside of an intimate relationship or a bdsm setting but she still counts as submissive because she does what vania says.

do that mean all captured pokemon are submissive? do we live in a society? i cannot answer these questions.

For the peaceful route naw, I didn't think of anything super different outside of the ideas brainstormed by the suggestors.

>Favorite poke from later gens
Chi-yu from scarlet violet because pretty fish and also a very good mon.

>favorite mon to write
Gengar. i like large fruity bastards in fiction

>Do the friendlies get up to anything interesting after the end of the quest?
they keep doing their usual rescue team activities. the members you recruited for the school would help with that

>do i wish flygon had been a different pokemon?
that evolutionary line is about on the cusp of being a little too complicated for my liking since i am very lazy. otherwise i didn't have any problems with it.

>pokemon nicknames off the top of my head
Flygon: Golf
Smeargle: Brush
Gengar: Big Momma

>violent revolution, what would it have been like?
here was my vague gameplan:

1. tell friendlies about the PC glitch

2. recruit a legendary out of deoxys latios or latias

3. decide how to make your demands whether by holding lanette hostage or storing a legendary to mess up the pc, or something else

4. shit hits the fan and the league, scott, and steven tell tracy to put smeargle in her ball, stetson to put you in your ball, and/or catch your friends to hold counter hostage.

5. ???

6. you come out on top because you have the numbers advantage and superpowers, but at varying levels of cost

it was alluded to in the first thread that pokemon can actually get permanently injured and die if they keep getting hit after they've fainted, so death was on the table.

humans could also be killed by getting out of badge range and dropping a sufficiently deadly object, say, a rock, on them. i doubt people would have been into that though

if you read back a couple tippler messages i mention i am working on a short VN game with fairy waifus and also creatures that occupies the same setting as next quest, which will be grimdark edge and will start once i finish game.

i only have 3 scenes left of game write and i have all the logic figured so hopefully i can bang it out in ren py pretty quick and get it playtested by an unlucky patron and ready on itch by next tuesday

File 170114183549.png - (168.80KB , 500x500 , fae1a.png )

for the pacifist route you could have gotten another minor legal concession if you hadn't tried to resolve the vania vaporeon situation, which is a short term/long term hand off since none of the long term impact of the legal stuff can really be shown in quest.

honestly from my point of view it was pretty ideal, being friends with unethical rich people like scott is worth it because money and helping vaporeon was a good thing to do because preventing exploitation.

the quest is over and it's up to you to interpret what would happen to flygon and his work for pokemon rights years in the future based on the info in the quest.

sadly no, the events occurring in quest have little to do with
rural forest fairy politics. only character with overlap is mysterious red guy on horse. thanks for playing the game!

That's pretty neat! I guess the orc's paintbrush is why Pliny came out so vain. Did the wishes have any influence, or just the things tossed in?
