Pokemon GO!


It’s the latest craze sweeping the nation! It seems like everyone has at least tried catching invisible monsters on their smartphone. Even your grandmother’s seen the thing on the news. What kind of adventures will you have in all this strange, new, horribly distracted foot traffic in your town?

How to Play
  • Comment with your character and preferences. Optionally, include their team color!
  • Tag around, friends and strangers!
  • RNG for prompts, or just take whatever sounds like the most fun.
  • Feel free to mix prompts!
  1. Hey, watch it! - One of you just walked into the other while pursuing a rare Pokemon. Oops!
  2. Under the (digital) cherry blossoms - Someone put a lure on this Pokestop! Was it you? Did you anticipate who might come to take advantage of it?
  3. Why are you here?! - Didn’t you know? Your home/job/favorite hangout is a Pokestop or a Gym and players seem to be showing up at all hours.
  4. No really why are you here?! - You’re trespassing in pursuit of a game goal, and this person is either with you or the one wanting you to stay out. Is the risk worth the prize?
  5. Where’s that Pokemon?! - A dratini spawned around here somewhere and you have to find it first!
  6. Running on empty - Your phone battery is dying, maybe you can get somebody to lend you a charge?
  7. Gym buddies - You and this other person are on the same team! Can you defeat this gym, then guard it against the horde?
  8. Gym rivals - You and this other person are on enemy teams! It’s an even match, so the question is who’s going to run out of potions first? If the servers stay up that long.
  9. We came out to have a good time, and… - You were going to kill this evening playing Pokemon Go. You have your walking shoes, your water bottle, your portable phone charger, aaaaand the servers are toast. Maybe if you hang out with this other unfortunate for a bit they’ll come back online?
  10. What do you mean we can’t change teams?! - Maybe you should’ve coordinated with your friends before you hit level 5. Alternately, maybe you should’ve checked to make sure you didn’t side with a person you can’t stand by accident.
  11. Hatching eggs! - You're jogging, biking, or somebody's rented a go kart. ...Or maybe you're just begging your friend to drive you around the neighborhood real slow while you play your stupid phone game.
  12. Ouch! - You really should've paid more attention to where you were going. At least if everyone's on their phones, someone can call an ambulance!
  13. No fun allowed! - Bah humbug, all these people and their stupid fancy smart phones and their stupid critter game. You can’t believe your friend/enemy/coworker would waste their time on this thing, or you’re just going to give a stranger a piece of your mind about it. (Or maybe you’re just bitter you’re still using a Razr and can’t play.)
  14. Really? Right now?! - You've been caught messing around with your phone at just the wrong moment. You're at work! You're at a funeral! The satin sheets are on the bed! But the phone just buzzed and you have to know if it's that rare pokemon you've been chasing all week.
  15. WILDCARD - Something else! Decided to set up a lemonade stand for all these thirsty trainers? Need help reaching that Pokestop in the middle of the ocean? Or maybe you just thought this was Tinder and you are horribly confused.

[ The Omnic monk is Team Mystic but is very supportive of all teams and often places Lure Modules in various, safe areas for all to enjoy. He's pretty good at throwing those Poke Balls. He'll also happily offer advice to those on their own Pokemon journeys and make sure no one is getting into trouble for trespassing or disturbing others.

This is a wonderful game that brings people together. We are all walking toward a common cause of catching them all.

Except... if the gym at Mondatta's statue in King's Row is held by an anti-Omnic trainer, so help him. Zenyatta is not leaving until he unleashes tranquility on the location. He doesn't care if it's 2 AM. He's winning that gym in the name of Omnics and Omnic supporters everywhere.

i fear i'm going to regret this

[So, uh.]


[...Guess who just took the Mondatta statue in King's Row. At 2 AM.]

[ Why he happened to be up at this hour when he should be in his sleep cycle is a mystery that eludes even him. Yet, here he is looking at his cell phone and at a gym in the near distance. It has changed from the blue it once was. Red, yellow, the current color matters not to Zenyatta. However.... Perhaps he sensed a disturbance in the Poke-Force Iris or maybe something else like a username has tipped him off, but he realizes that the current trainer residing over Mondatta's statue is not friendly toward Omnics.

And could he leave King's Row knowing that a statue raised in honor of his late brother, Mondatta, is currently in the hands of someone who is against what Mondatta wished for? Or for what Zenyatta himself wishes for?

Against better judgement (This is King's Row, after all), Zenyatta sneaks out of where he's residing for the night and silently hovers down the street, closer to the statue.

[That PokéStop is now glowing red on their screens, matching with the purple of the Nidoking perched upon it. Majestic. Triumphant.]

[The place is deserted except for one particularly soot-coated individual, sprawled all over a nearby bench. The glow of the phone illuminates Junkrat's face, for once without a deranged smile, as he repeatedly presses the button to make his Pokémon attack his other Pokémon. He's completely focused on building up that Prestige for best team.]

[He doesn't even look up as Zenyatta approaches -- doesn't notice he's there, in fact. Even if Zenyatta had been a bit less stealthy, he could have still gotten the drop on Junkrat; the man's hearing is kind of terrible.]

[ Oh. Oh dear. Zenyatta spots Junkrat on the bench. He pauses at the street corner. The gym's range doesn't quite reach, and the glow of the cell phone highly suggests the trainer who bested his gym. This makes the situation more difficult and more dangerous. Zenyatta regrets not informing anyone that he was leaving. (Even if they would have tried to stop him.)

Maybe... he can stay on the other side of the statue and avoid direct confrontation with Junkrat. Junkrat does look very pleased with himself... Part of Zenyatta muses about coming by later once Junkrat is gone and let Junkrat enjoy his victory a bit longer.

Or not.

Zenyatta floats to the statue, blocking line of sight from Junkrat, and sends his Kadabra to battle. Perhaps he could have more Combat Points, but he does have type advantage and dodges at his disposal.
junkprat: (SURELY YOU JEST)

they know each other by this point yes?

[Wot. Wot is this.]

[Why is someone attacking his Gym now? Junkrat finally looks up from his phone and takes some wild glances around. The place is deserted. What kind of person (other than Junkrat) would be wandering around out here at this hour? Is it some random cop who's off duty and decided to mess around on empty streets? They must not have seen Junkrat himself yet, then, or else they'd be calling in for backup and trying to haul his ass off to jail.]

[It's not worth it to possibly get busted for Pokémon Go.]

[The man shoves his phone in his pocket and gets up. As quietly as he can with his scrapheap prosthetics (which is not very quietly at all), he attempts to sneak away from the scene... and in doing so, notices a glint from the corner of his eye. The light of the phone reflecting off a shiny facial exterior.]

[Pfft. Cops? It's just an Omnic, who cares.]

Hey! Are you the one trying to snatch my Gym?
orbislife: screenshot of Zenyatta looking to the side (Your will is strong my friend)

Sure! (Also sorry for late. I was on a trip)

[ At the sound of the a peg-leg hitting the pavement, Zenyatta looks up from his phone. He debates making a hasty retreat to safety. However, he is not fast enough. It seems like a confrontation is unavoidable, but it need not come to something serious. (Even if Zenyatta really wants to regain control of the gym.) ]

I am. That is the purpose of gyms in this game, is it not?

[ He says as he turns to face Junkrat proper. His phone lowers to his lap. ]

That is an impressive Pokemon you have raised.
