  What’s Next?

We’ve had Mewtwo vs Lovrina, Darkrai vs Lovrina (twice), now we just need to see Jen ve Lovrina and that’ll be everyone.

MewTwo the great Boss Kitty.
To be real fair, he has a talent in leadership and handling complicated situations.

@CIR (Guest) DON'T SAY THAT! You are tempting fate and God!


Okay seriously! He needs Jen more then ever! He needs to be her partner, he is already living with Gengar and Jen, he might as well be part of the team at this point! I mean it may not work out too well, but lets face it, we need a stopgap measure of some kind to buy Mewtwo time, and knowing the Genie is still out there with a favor he can collect at anytime, we don't have all that much to spare.

I say we get as close to something even if it is only partially successful, we need time here. Say, did treasure town given how it expanded into an almost full city before it was burned, was there any pokemon out there that would have been a possible equivalent to a Psychiatry/therapist? Because we need one right now. As for Lovrina and Mewtwo's frustration over the situation, we need something to bring everybody back together, I say we have a pokemon battle with Lovrina and maybe Wes as the Pokemon and Mewtwo and Darkrai as the trainers. It would be all kinds of cathartic but I would probably a good release valve on the pressure, Please for the love of God let's see somebody turned the humans into the pokemon battlers, and the pokemon as the trainers.

Mewtwo totally lied to Darkrai's face. He has no idea how to reverse something on the level of genetic engineering, and even if he could, I doubt he'd be depraved enough to even attempt such a thing. It's shitty to think about, but there really is only one person left who can fix this...

Y'know Mewtwo, if it's that bad, just stay with Darkrai!!
According to Wes, you need to show a Pokemon kindness in order to free it from the influence of the Shadow.
So why not temporarily purify Darkrai, and then try to figure out a permanent cure?

Unless.... If a Shadow Pokemon will obey, why not simply find a new partner for Darkrai?

And it upsets me that employing the classic "kill it with fire" against Little Miss Soulless (aka Lovrina) would not be a course of wisdom.

Obviously, this is Lovrina's redemption arc. Despite how much I want it not to be.

I’m beginning to think this is going to Segway into people going against eachother.

Well, well. Life is very complicated, is it? We're gonna need more well's.

Considering what's happening...I wonder if a certain expedition to Wish/Star Cave is in order?

If you don't get why... (bottom left): go/

Mewtwo is calm more than ever.

Are there any more fires to put out? I assume so.

Damn Stockholm Syndrome.

Maybe Seek Jurachi?

@Ngamer01, Considering Page One has Jirachi's silhouette, I hope that he can be of help. Maybe, help Darkrai?

so you ARE going to rest!

  A Cure

Peeps are forgetting Jirachi lives in the Mystery Dungeon universe. He/She/It can fix this easily. Arceus also should be able to since he is the creator of pokemon. The problem is finding them.

Personally I am waiting for Jen to slap her sister around and tell her she is a worthless b!tch.

posted by Kattra on October 12th, 2018, 5:05 pm


So, use Jirachi to wish his condition away...don't you guys think that is a little anti-climactic? Plus, when he granted Bidoof's wish, I really couldn't tell if a wish was even granted. It seemed more like he used future sight or asked the universe to give the guy friends.

The thing that Mewtwo said about Jen on the last page, that she was upset, wanted to take away his pain. The others are freaking out because they don't know how to process the revelation that Darkari still feels attached to the first that tried to capture him.

There is a perfectly reasonable solution to this. Someone MUCH more suited towards his base personality, and someone who's already bonded strongly, and felt sorrow over her sister's involvement.

So the reasonable solution is to have Gengar be his Partner. (from the back seats, "what?") Look, I was thinking Jen too, but then I went and looked up Gengar's movesets for the game, when he's on the player's team in PMD. "Scratch, Leer, Quick Attack, Taunt." That snarky butthead is perfect for Darkari. And if this turns into something Lovrina really wants it to, he can help Darkari, because he understands what it means to conquer a darker side of yourself and what that takes. Friends. Courage. Empathy.

Then they can all get into how Darkari doesn't NEED a partner. He is loved and wanted in his own right. There's time for all that later, when it's not a crisis and Darkari's hurting and confused.

@SmartTurtle04 - Well it's not Lovrina will do anything. Not without force anyways. If not by her or deity intervention, it's hauling Darkrai back to the human world to find somebody else experienced in genetic modification.

The problem will the latter is...what if Mewtwo snaps into PTSD and blows up any labs he finds himself in. <.<

@Guest - Well the Pokemon anime played with this with Jirachi's movie. Jirachi can grant wishes, even if it's nothing more than stealing candy from a nearby area to grant a wish for candy. <.<;;

To what extent Jirachi's wish granting ability is never really fully explored, but in the Rescue Team games, Jirachi can teleport you in a vast amount of items, Poke, give you a friend area you don't have, raise your rescue rank (unless it's max rank already) or even summon a Pokemon you don't have to join your team (you have to have max rescue rank).

I hope the next one comes out by tomorrow this is my favourite stroy I've ever read even better than the inheritance cycle which I've read 8 times

Guys, seriously. Darkrai does not need a partner. He just needs TLC and proper care, the medical kind. Not all pokemon belong in imaginary pokeballs either, jeez(lol!) He's pissed because somebody just gave him Poke'rus (Basically Pokemon aids/hepatitis) I mean, how the hell would you react to a person that knowingly gave you herpes? I'd be absolutely furious, and would sue them so hard, that they might as well just kill themselves because I would never leave them alone for the rest of their life. Darkrai has every right to be pissed off, and seeing him try to rationalize what happened to himself makes total sense. (If it were me, I would be waaaaaay less forgiving than him. No, I am not a nice and forgiving person when on the receiving end of being screwed over. I've slashed tires before...)

Wes, N , Mewtwo, Alakazam, and Lompbunny and her team? I can see them trying to brainstorm a plan or solution or at least by time.

posted by MercenaryX on October 14th, 2018, 3:49 pm


I hope Mewtwo doesn't burn himself out, trying to solve everyone's problems.
@MercenaryX, Maybe the brainstorm involves seeing Celebi again? (Or maybe ducktape Lovrina's mouth so she can't talk?)

posted by SmartTurtle04 on October 15th, 2018, 11:22 am



That how all the brainstorming sessions are going to have to start.

Thinking Sessions

@MercenaryX, Maybe everyone gets a peacha berry, and some shaved ice, while they are thinking? Two groups of four. Jen and Team Charm work together, while it is a free for all with Mewtwo, Gangar, Wes, and N to see who thinks it up first. And this goes on for hours...... until Gangar needs a new base.
