Jason didn't injure his pokemon at all. He kicked his pawniard so it lost balance. also they aren;t using attacks for damage. only ones used were faint attack and that was for invisiblity. A pokemon could choose not to attack with a move and just not hurt you. Also yes Isaac has been hit by those attacks before. i mentioned that he was scarred from his previous training. I put this in my SU. it was the center of the character. he's so close to his pokemon his puts his life on the line to train with them.

And it's not stress its anger. there is a difference. when you're angry punching somone in the face is a great way to relieve that anger. The reason it trains them in two ways: 1 it makes them closer with Isaac, and 2 they learn restraint.]


EDIT: ya know what I feel this will jsut end in me raging on the RP and that jsut isn't something I want to do. So instead of pointing out my mistakes how would you suggest I fix it? Since it is key to Isaac's character that he is training along with his pokemon in some sort of physical manner.

I regularly climb into the lion den at the zoo and start fighting the lions. It really helps with my anger, and if the lions can manage to not kill me? I just feel so close to them.

There are certain aspects/methods of training with pokemon that are plausible such as cardio, weights or potentially, MAYBE, very light sparring with fighting types (as in rehearsing movements, no actual attacks) but suggesting that what are essentially monsters you are attempting to simultaneously tame and develop into killing machines are going to show the restraint to not kill you and earn their freedom when they get the chance? I apologise, but I call cattle manure on that one. Especially considering Isaac's Pawniard was received in a trade one day ago and would hold no loyalty to him other than the fact that it has been traded into slavery in his care.

If someone slave traded me, and my master said "Come at me bro!" he'd be experiencing my freaking blade arms to the fullest. Regardless of how theraputic he thought the experience might be.

well actually the pawniard replaced another team member since it was never introduced anyways.

and I said instead of pointing out my mistakes Linc, so i hope you expected a logn rambling list of why your points don't matter. because i want you to be dissapointed.

EDIT: forget dissapointing you. you lit the flame.

firstly pokemon do not kill its basic canon. people kill pokemon but not vice versa. (rocket killed marowak)

secondly pokemon can only be caught if you earn their trust. its why they can break free.

thirdly its not slavery. I call BS on your BSing my work. pokemon are fully free and can just ignore their masters and wouldn't be caught. you're acting as though Jackson, Bixi, and Siege are just waiting til they can gang bang linc so they can run away.

@Kezius: I can get in contact with him personally within the day... Your character is allowed to simply leave class if the teacher doesn't show up. There's no requirement to attend the class you're given, though teachers may scold you for not trying.

If you wanted to attend a different class that's another story and would be slightly more complicated.

@jasonwolf: Uh-huh... Dude, you need to chill. I'm not going to sit here and watch my members fight. This is a friendly environment, and you can't be treating people like that. Some of what Lincoln said is actually right.

See my concern is Jason /not/ getting injured. How do you get away with kicking a pokemon much heavier than say a soccer ball, literally made of sharp deadly blades, and walk away unscathed? That's going to ruin your shoes at best yo.

I also have no interest in contesting Isaac's history. Surviving an attack with non-lethal injuries is not unreasonable at all. However, Pokemon are very strong. I'm saying that if a human takes an attack from a pokemon, it's going to result in moderate, temporary injury at best. It'll hurt a lot. You may very likely have to go to the infirmary, get bandaged up, recieve aid, maybe even stay a while depending on the attack. You might even be temporarily crippled. Medicine is pretty powerful in the Pokemon world, so it's up to you to decide on any permanent injuries such as scars.

Now, let me address the argument.

For the record, pokemon do kill humans. Black and White introduced two species of Pokemon that deliberately seek out and hunt humans for food, Cofagrigus and Jellicent. Yamask are undead humans consumed by Cofagrigus.

If you ever so much as touch a wooper with bare skin? Their skin is toxic. You'll wind up in the hospital, or worse. In the very first episode of the anime, a swarm of spearow try to kill Ash and Pikachu. A group of ghosts gets Ash killed in lavender town, but later revive him. Mewtwo blows up an entire lab full of people, and later he and Mew kill Ash, though once again he is revived. (...) In the Tree of Beginning the entire main cast, save Mew and Lucario, are eaten alive and killed, but once again brought back to life. Do I even need to mention that time a giant Tentacruel ravaged an entire city? Ghetsis tries to kill you in the games, using his Pokemon.

On the other hand you're right about Pokemon being free. Pokemon obey humans because they were created that way. It's in their natures to obey their trainers, and thus they do that by default after being caught. The battle to catch a pokemon is honestly more about respect and less about trust. Catching Pokemon is more about earning a Pokemon's respect than anything else, and if you ever lose a Pokemon's respect after catching it, it stops listening to his/her trainer.

The relationship between Pokemon and Humans resembling slavery is superficial. It's more of a really weird partnership unless the trainer in question corrupts the relationship into slavery by manipulating a pokemon's nature.

Anyway, I would suggest simply having Isaac exercise with his Pokemon. I also just imagined him fighting other trainers physically while his pokemon fought theirs. Which is hilarious, but bound to get him hated which is not what you want if I recall. You could have Isaac play sports with his Pokemon.

Well, perhaps my slavery comparisn was off. And I didn't realise you had simply retconned things rather than writing an explanation of the change - your perrogative and my mistake.

I have no desire to light your fire (that means something very different where I'm from, by the way...) as you said, I just disagree with your position. As Yellow said, Pokemon one hundred percent do attack and kill humans. There are a few cheeky bits of lore in the games that describe how a human began hunting Pokemon with a sword, and from then on Pokemon in the grass will just about always attack humans. Captured pokemon don't tend to do this, but there are exceptions. Ash's Charizard set his head on fire several times purely out of disobedience, Ash only surviving because he's a childrens cartoon character. James' Victreebell(s) regularly made an effort to eat him. It was suggested this was through affection, but still. Tried to eat him.

I think we should remember these are monsters (Pokemon = Pocket Monsters) that are far, far more powerful than any human. Even should they attempt to hold back, they may accidently destroy a human they attack.

@Lincoln: Oh boy... the lore in that library is pretty interesting. It's dangerous to use it though because certain books, most especially the one that describes there being a time when Pokemon and Humans had no differences, make absolutely no sense and seem to blatantly contradict other lore unless you happen to 'acquire' an Arceus and then talk to a rather special hiker. Who explains that apparently Pokemon and People were one entity in the beginning and--

Yeah. It's trippy as pokeballs. I /love/ Gen 4 for this stuff though.

Have a copy of the script and see for yourself!

Why the fascination with Mt. Coronet, you may ask?
Well Mt. Coronet happens to be called "The origin of Sinnoh."
I learned many things on my journey. Would you like to hear them?
The way I see it, our world began when the spirit within people was born.
When that spirit came to be, there followed awareness about the world.
Within the newborn spirit, time and space were intertwined as one.
People and Pokémon, too, were but the same presence.
As I understand it, people and Pokémon shared the spirit and awareness.
They should have understood and accepted each other then.
Because they shared the same spirit, people and Pokémon intermingled.
People took the place of Pokémon, and the opposite also held true.
That interpretation could give us an idea about how our world came to be.
A Pokémon is said to have shaped this world.
Could that Pokémon be the physical form of the original spirit?
Hmm... The spirit came to be, and from it, time and space were born...
That seems to point to legendary Dialga, the Pokémon of time, and Palkia, the Pokémon of space...
And they lead back to Arceus, the Pokémon that made them arise.
Oh, there were also Plates, weren't there?
One Plate read "Three beings were born to bind time and space."
Those three beings I read to mean the three Pokémon of the lakes. It's about Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf.
The myth describes how they gave spirit to the world, shaping it.
But it all starts with Arceus, the first. It is known as the Original One.
Oh, by the way, I wrote down the words engraved on those Plates.
I summarized them in a book and donated it to this library,
There it is in that bookshelf. I'd be pleased if you'd read it.
I have to say, I'm glad I came out to Sinnoh.
I suppose I'd better be off in search of new myths in faraway lands.
It would be nice if our paths were to cross again.

Hey all just wondering a couple of things:

A) If there is anyone else heading to the fossil/mining class at the moment (or who is already there)? George is going to be heading that way soon but I dont really want him sat around in a classroom with an NPC teacher

B) Is there anyone heading to Pokemon Biology soon so Prof Andrew Thomas can begin his class?

No rush for anyone here just want to gauge how long until George should head off/Andrew can begin.
