    I am rather suspicious of those who are keeping quiet, but without further actionable evidence, we could end up repeating 2015.

    Alright, so...

    Let's talk mafia.
    Since the Ultra Wormhole Opened up, the Ultra Beasts are probably mafia.
    So TMM's probably Guzzlord.

    Lynch TMM

    Did...did you just vote to lynch someone going on a joke..?

    Now I'm suspicious. Why so quick to vote at random?

    What? It's not random, I promise! I have pokedex entries to back it up!

    Sun: "It has gobbled mountains and swallowed whole buildings, according to reports. It’s one of the Ultra Beasts."
    Moon: "A dangerous Ultra Beast, it appears to be eating constantly, but for some reason its droppings have never been found."

    Literally TMM, no?

    I can't deny that, but how do you know that it's not a Mareanie, Mimikyu, Grimer or Salandit who are the mafia? It's not your reasoning that raised a red flag, but your haste to vote...

    No, since I'm A. Not a mafiosa and B. Not Leon.

    And arse talk is the best way to start throwing accusations. That said, we still don't have much evidence, and I still hold to the fact that it would be unwise to say the least to start voting for lynches.

    Well since we don't have much to go on and I'll get bandwagonned on if I try to do a lynch today, why don't we think about what our enemies could be?

    Mex posting a bunch of different Pokemon gave me the idea that maybe we could list out what Pokemon might be in the game so we could figure out what roles the characters might have.

    Im assuming we are all Pokemon here since cosmog was a Pokemon and I'm a pokemon. Thinking that's a good assumption.

    I could definitely see Gumshoos being our investigator and Alolacate being the mafia leader, for example.

    Hmmm... I could see Comfey being the doctor, or perhaps Golisopod or Tapu Koko being a protector. Maybe Oranguru could be a seer/investigator as well.

    @Angel Knight Phil My watched thread emails randomly started going to my spam folder again.

    And Styg, the fact that your lynch vote is solely a fat joke is noted. Still just as foundless as any other day 1 accusation, but noted.

    My guess is that we will see a lot of common, unevolved 'mons like Pikipek and Caterpie as townies, and perhaps more malicious types like Ghastly and Phantump as possible mafia members. I'm also going to assume that all roles are player unique, as in there can't be two of the same Pokemon. No real reason to have duplicates when there are so many Pokemon to choose from, methinks. I've also considered the possibility that Pokemon role and alignment may not even be related, though I don't see any reason for this to be the case.

    I'm personally more interested in learning about how clues are going to work. At least on the surface level it seems like they aren't going to be useful for town unless we already know who has what role. In that case, we could push for everyone to role-claim, but then mafia will lie and we get no closer to being able to use clues.

    Considering the possible function of the clues, I suspect that the seer/investigator's powers may be slightly downgraded such that they can only see Pokemon and not necessarily alignment. In that case, they can find out who is what Pokemon, and then use the clues to help them decide whether a certain Pokemon is the culprit. This is purely speculation though - I am not the investigator.

    Whatever the case, I think the likelihood of clues being useful is going to be rather small unless the investigator makes a breakthrough. If clues behaved like they did last game, I'd advocate for not lynching day 1, since they seem to give town the advantage if they're not terribly ambiguous (and I would know!), though if we assume that clues will be less reliable then I'm inclined to agree with SS that lynching day 1 would be better. I'm a little on the fence either way, so I'm not going to press the issue.

    I think the nature of this game will be more clear tomorrow, but it doesn't hurt to speculate.

    Panda is probably Murkrow or Honchkrow.

    Also since when did Mex know Leon?

    I have a feeling that it will be role based clues since this is a semi clued game. That's typically how it goes in those for us.
