Nostalgia Quest by Tippler

Spoilerth tiny.png This quest contains material that is not safe for work. You were warned.

A mix of Gen 3 Pokemon games in quest form. Items, Pokemon, and concepts from Gen 4 on don't exist.

Trapinch, our hero, wakes up one night transformed into a Pokemon and has to navigate a complicated mix of two worlds.

If something is labeled a "check" in quest, it's a 50/50 unless specified otherwise.




A former salary man with a thing for illicit magazines. Desperately wants thumbs again, enjoys the Pokemon lifestyle.



Proud den owner and former pro Pokemon. Has an annoying moveset for such a sweet lady.



A moody Pokemon who hatched in the Pokemon Daycare.



Trapinch's best bud and the local shop-keep. Likes Eevee.
