This was one of my favorite threads on the precursor to Festival Plaza, National Park. I thought I might revive it and give you all a chance at it.

Wikipedia said:
The Fortunately, Unfortunately word game follows a standard format:

One person begins with a sentence (e.g., One day Little Johnny walked to the local shoe shop).
The next person tells of something unfortunate that happens (e.g., Unfortunately, Little Johnny was hit by a car.).
The following person contributes a fortunate event (e.g., Fortunately, the car was made entirely of marshmallows).
The fourth person will contribute an unfortunate event (e.g., Unfortunately, Johnny was allergic to marshmallows.)
The fifth person will contribute a fortunate event (e.g., Fortunately, Johnny didn't eat any of the car.), and the process is repeated

The game does not have any specified ending point.
Other than that, there are no rules there's only one rule: Don't contradict an above user's statement. In other words, "Yes, And." Make the story as off-the-rails as you want!

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
Fortunately, this was still a wild battle, and Jennifer was able to catch the Sharpedo with an Ultra Ball!

Probably some kind of coding prank. Never seen outside of box 3. Is a slob apparently.
Fortunately when she rebooted the game, she'd managed to unlock new game+ already.

Unfortunately, they had never banned Dynamax, which Sharpedo proceeded to do.

This Pokemon would rather be doing donuts than fighting Ganon.
Fortunately, Sharpedo only wanted a hug.

This POKéMON is struggling to figure out what interesting stuff he can put into his Pokédex entry.
Unfortunately, the DLC also gave it Mirror Armor mid-battle, so now Jennifer's Attack is lowered.
