Use the computer to look up the strengths and weaknesses of whatever Pokéthulhu we are likely to first own, or have the choice of owning.

First things first. Check emails.

Yeah, check your emails. Making sure to take the potion (or whateevr other monstrosity) is in it.


It's been a few days since you've checked your emails. It's probably as good a place as any to start - and it's pretty much all it can do. You've heard of computers that tame digithulhu into summoning physical items, but things like that have a history of killing their owners. Mother's pretty paranoid about anything to do with 'thulhus, and poor besides.


The first two look like spam. The second two look like reading, though.

Whatever that one was, it looked like it got corrupted along the way. You think it's probably spam, though. It's not from any valid email address you've ever seen.

It's from GREG USHIS. You don't have many friends here in Solton, so you email people. Not many reply, but you and Greg struck up a friendship. He started his 'thulhu training quest a few weeks ago. This is the last email you've gotten from him. He's normally quite articulate and funny but... something's strange. He probably just had to rush, couldn't take his time like he normally does.

Use the computer to look up the strengths and weaknesses of whatever Pokéthulhu we are likely to first own, or have the choice of owning.

You'd like to, but you wouldn't know where to begin. Most of that knowledge is either on sites your Mother filters, or is restricted to POKENOMICRONS. Too much knowledge concentrated in one spot tends to manifest itself in... dangerous ways.

Turn off the TV. The static is disconcerting.


The hiss was getting on your nerves, anyway. You can't even remember turning it on.

Move the pot plant closer to the window. It'll wither away that far from sunlight.

No no, it's obviously some sort of shield keeping pest Pokethulhu trapped in the walls.

Go downstairs.

It's a fair shove but it makes sense. Solton's quiet, sunny. Mother says it's important to have something alive in the house.

The leaves are already starting to look better.

Go downstairs.


Oh, great. She's awake.

You decide to be bold and creep over to your mother. You ask for some pie before you begin your adventure.

"What the fuck do I look like, some kinda pie machine? And you ain't going nowhere until you help me find another pack."

She punctuates her sentence by taking a long hard drag on what's left of her cigarette. The ash scatters all over the table. You've tried ashtrays before but Mother doesn't believe in them.

Start flirting with your mom.

You don't know what terrifies you more. The fact that this thought popped into your head, or you honestly don't know how your Mother would respond. You decide it's best not to tempt fate. Or... tempt your Mother. Ew.

Find a pack of smokes and pressed to smoke them in front of your mother.

We may not be as brave as Gryffindor, as willing to get our hands dirty as Hufflepuff, or as devious as Slytherin, but there is nothing, nothing more dangerous than a little too much knowledge and a conscience that is open to debate

Give mother one of your cigarettes, which you keep on you at all times, and scream something at your mother in an inhuman tongue.

Then go outside for a walk in the grass.
