Title: The Qyop
Description: Q's "your own path"
-Q- - January 2, 2006 01:55 AM (GMT)
A new day dawns and Q begins his morning like any other.
"KIPPER, MY FACE IS NOT A PLANT SO STOP WATERING IT WITH THE WAILMER PAIL!"
Kipper merrily puts down the pail and hops on Q's stomach until he finally gets out of bed.
"Okay, okay! We're off!"
After having travelled by boat from his island home, Q stayed the night in Professor Oak's lab. The Professor was kind enough to let him stay there in exchange for delivering his equipment from the lab on Q's home island. Having finished his job, Q is ready to take off on his Pokémon journey at last. After writing the Proffessor a quick thank-you note, Q steps out of the lab into the morning sun.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 02:10 AM (GMT)
So you step out into the sunlight and your face BURNS, YA KNOW. ...Wait, that was only me...sorry.
Well, you're in Pallet Town now! Huttah! You see a few houses, people frolicking, tamed Pokemon frolicking, some books frolicking, and off into the distance, you can see some wild Pokemon frolicking. WHEE!
-Q- - January 2, 2006 02:23 AM (GMT)
Q walks towards the wild Pokémon that are frolicking, trying to spot a Water Pokémon.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 02:28 AM (GMT)
My god, I believe they are!
It's a group of three wild Squirtle frolicking and dancing around with flowers shooting out of their heads. HUTTAH.
-Q- - January 2, 2006 02:32 AM (GMT)
Q runs up to inspect the Squirtle.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 02:37 AM (GMT)
Level 4, (M) Jolly Squirtle
Level 3, (M) Bold Squirtle
Level 5, (F) Quirky Squirtle
They notice you run up to them, but they ignore you and continue frolicking anyways.
-Q- - January 2, 2006 02:40 AM (GMT)
Q slowly approaches the Female Squirtle.
"Hi there, how are you? Would you like to join my team?"
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 02:42 AM (GMT)
The Squirtle all stop dancing and bow to you. They then do random silly poses and continue dancing after a while...
-Q- - January 2, 2006 02:49 AM (GMT)
Q holds out a Pokéball.
"So, whaddya say, Squirtle? Will you come with me?"
Kipper walks out from behind Q and nudges the female Squirtle towards him.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 02:51 AM (GMT)
...The female Squirtle misunderstands and blushes a bit, then runs off somewhere else (still in your line of sight). The other two Squirtle notice this and follow the Squirtle...
OMG SQUIRTLE MAFIA???
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:00 AM (GMT)
"Ehh, Kipper, ask these other Squirtles if they can get the Female Squirtle to join our team. If not, we'll have to take her by force. Get ready!"
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:04 AM (GMT)
Kipper runs off and asks them...and the female Squirtle ponders a bit. The other two Squirtle look a bit offended...
The female Squirtle finally responds and Kipper rushes back to you with her response. By some freaky work of art, you manage to make out her response as 'What's in it for me?'
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:08 AM (GMT)
"Kipper, tell her that you and she get to be great friends and that she gets to help look for other Water Pokémon for her to play with!"
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:09 AM (GMT)
Kipper continues to be a messenger and gives you her response...
"Can you and your friends dance?"
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:16 AM (GMT)
Q dances for Squirtle.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:21 AM (GMT)
The female Squirtle nods and applauds, dancing as well! She frolics obar (NOT MISPELL'D) to you and pokes teh Pogeyballs.
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:26 AM (GMT)
Aww! Q drops to his knees and taps Squirtle with a Pokéball.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:30 AM (GMT)
Nickname or anything?
The other two Squirtle sadly retreat into the bushes...
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:37 AM (GMT)
Q then heads off to see if he can find Viridian City.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:40 AM (GMT)
So you head off. Dada-dadada-dada-dadada-dada-dadaDAdadadaDA...
You wander around a bit, but it appears that you're getting lost in a fairly straightforward and simple route. TREES! EBERRYWHARE!
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:47 AM (GMT)
Q hates trees and therefore kicks one! He then tries to find someone who can lead him outta the forest.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:50 AM (GMT)
You kick a tree and an abnormally large acorn falls and bounces off your head! DAYUM!
You look around for help, but there's nothing but...TREES! And it's dead silent here too...
-Q- - January 2, 2006 03:52 AM (GMT)
Cray (Corphish)! Come out and see if you can help me figure out how to get out of here!
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 03:59 AM (GMT)
Cray looks around and examines the situation...it pokes a tree, ponders a bit and begins to point its pincers in a direction when alluvasudden...
BAMPH! A shell comes out of nowhere and knocks Cray into you! It appears to be that one Bold Squirtle from before, trying to rescue a damsel in distress. O_o;; The Jolly Squirtle pops out of a bush and tries to convince the Bold to come back, but it's ignored...
...so the Jolly Squirtles takes out some maracas (or whatever) out of nowhere and starts dancing and shaking them!
-Q- - January 2, 2006 04:45 AM (GMT)
*whips out sombrero*
*dances with Jolly Squirtle*
After Q dances with the Squirtle he asks Cray to ask Squirtle to lead them out of the forest.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 04:50 AM (GMT)
The Bold Squirtle is absol-utely shocked and refuses to lead you out! It attempts to Tackle you again!
The Jolly Squirtle, however, starts dancing away, attempting to lead you out.
-Q- - January 2, 2006 07:12 AM (GMT)
"Quick, Cray, let's follow that Jolly Squirtle!"
Cray and Q sprint after the little turtle.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 06:43 PM (GMT)
*stabs freaky dungeon museek*
Anyhoo, you and your Pogeymon run and follow the dancing Squirtle! The other...is left all by himself as he angsts and sulks and all that.
After a while, you finally reach the exit and the next town: Viridian City! The Squirtle waves, dances a bit more, then dives into the bushes and out of sight!
-Q- - January 2, 2006 06:58 PM (GMT)
Q waves goodbye to the Squirtle and heads over to the Pokémon Center to talk to whoever is hanging out there.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 07:02 PM (GMT)
There's a hyuuge event at the Pokemon Center! But nawt rly.
Apparently, the cops are there with this other apron dude, and they're all talking about crazy trainers who want to eat Slowpoke Pies. And how said trainers would abuse their Pogeymon and eat them.
This is a frightening conversation. Perhaps you should just heal your Pogeys and flee.
Quickly! IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!
-Q- - January 2, 2006 07:06 PM (GMT)
Q approaches the counter.
"Umm, hi, Nurse Joy, could you...uh...heal my Cray? Also, what's this about Slowpoke pies? Surely people don't EAT them do they?"
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 07:12 PM (GMT)
Joy nods and whisks Cray away for some lovin' healing. NAWT.
The apron dude screams randomly! "Oh, it's TTTERRRIIIIBBBBLLLEEE! I had this Slowpoke Pie stand so I could watch out for any abusive trainers and someone actually asked for one! OOOOOOHHHHHH!!!"
He weeps a bit before continuing.
"So, so, I ran off to get the cops, but when I came back, the trainer AND the pie were gone! I hope he knew that was a mud pie, though!"
The apron dude blows his nose, and the cops take notes...
-Q- - January 2, 2006 07:20 PM (GMT)
"Awkward. I hope the theif chokes on the mud."
After receiving Cray back from Joy, Q heads out to tour the rest of the town.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 07:52 PM (GMT)
So you head off into the city! Ah, Viridian City! Smexy to the core. You can spy an old man screaming for coffee, the gym, a few houses, a pond, a guy in a bare tree, a guy sleeping on the floor, and a few routes leading to other places, one of them being back to Pallet.
-Q- - January 2, 2006 07:59 PM (GMT)
Q asks the man in the tree what on earth he's doing.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 08:05 PM (GMT)
The man in the tree replies that he is ninja. No other questions may be asked.
So now what?
-Q- - January 2, 2006 08:13 PM (GMT)
Now Q goes and inspects the pond.
Kirbop - January 2, 2006 08:18 PM (GMT)
It's a pretty pond, nice and clear. You can see your reflection in it, and the pond looks free of pollution of any kind. Some Pokemon are swimming in it contently, but you suspect that they're tamed Pokemon, as some trainers are at the edge of the pond.
-Q- - January 4, 2006 11:44 PM (GMT)
Q approaches one of the trainers and asks if anything interesting is going on about town.
Kirbop - January 5, 2006 01:38 AM (GMT)
"Nahh, nothing's really going on here...just the usual old guy screaming about coffee or summat. There's a few trainers up on the route battling, so it kinda hinders all the travelling, but eh. Stupid kids dunno no manners..."
The trainer leans back onto a tree and watches his Azurill swim about...
