Super Train Station H

The Pokémon Global Link would have been impressive if it were introduced in 2005, but in 2014 it just leaves me scratching my head wondering why it takes a PC and an external website to do basic things like spend PokéMiles I got from Streetpassing people with my 3DS in the first place.

The Global Link has some cool functions, but these functions should focus on things the 3DS alone can not do and never will be able to do, not things that could be EASILY done on the 3DS without even needing a wifi connection, but seem “cooler” with the novelty of linking it to an external website.

Man, Shaw sure can’t stop getting his ass kicked by Journey, huh?

I’m proud I was able to sneak in a Route 495 reference in there. In real life following Shania’s instructions really will take you from Riverhead to Arverne, which is the exact trip Journey is making to smuggle Shania’s Pokémon out of Munia.

I’d like take this chance to thank the community for the recognition Wind and Rain received in winning Bulbagarden’s Summer Fanfiction Awards 2014!

Amazingly this is the SECOND time this year that Wind & Rain has been featured after winning a  a major award on that community, and the second time I’ve been interviewed about it!

Here are links to the January 2014 interview, as well as the August 2014 interview!

I never would have expected such a response, and my readers (and I know they exist given the large number of downloads the episode PDFs have received! :P) have been keeping very quiet, so I couldn’t have been sure if people were just clicking the PDFs and not liking them, or if I actually had an audience!

Thanks for reading!

What will Merzie do? Kiss Sophie most likely.
I’m referring to OCs from  this fic of mine.
Its funny, Merzie was in Soul Silver and Sophia was in Black 2, so only since yesterday were they actually together on the same cartridge.

So I finally beat #Pokemon Y

Its nice for a change that the public actually gives a shit that I saved the world from an Evil Team while the police did absolutely nothing.

Spoilers ahead…

Tepig! 

What on earth are you doing to Snivy?

That’s it mister back in your Pokeball.

A joint commission between Tofu and Umbre

Tofu and Umbre are just regular humans, taking a walk in the woods with their beloved pokemon partners. Too bad they strayed too close to a chemical factory that happens to be belching toxic gas into the clouds about to rain…

I love how both of their Pokémon are all like “WUUUT? :<”

And aww look at Espeon comforting Tofu that’s so cute.

Why do I see so many people just assuming with no doubt whatsoever that a “Pokémon Z” is going to come out due to the existence of Zygarde?

Seriously, this is exactly like when people were like “Yeah forget Pokémon Black and White I’ll just wait till Pokémon Gray comes out.”

Today I thought “WOW Braixen is really effeminate. LET’S DRAW ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE A BRUTE.”

Terminus Cave is Rubbish

I wasted a whole bunch of time in Terminus Cave thinking that it was a tunnel which provided access to Couriway Town akin to Rock Tunnel or the Seafoam Islands in Pokémon Red and Blue.

Seriously Game Freak, if you just put a sign along the route that said:

Terminus Cave

Couriway Town

It would have saved me a lot of bother. Signs like this existed in games like Zelda: Link’s Awakening for the GameBoy and that game is over twenty years old!

The way Route 18 seems to lead players directly into Terminus Cave, being a Pokémon veteran and familiar with Game Freak’s map designs in earlier titles of the series, I naturally reasoned that I had to pass through Terminus Cave in order to reach the next town, but instead its a dead end that exists for exploration purposes that can’t actually be completed until after the main quest is over.

I was so convinced I was overlooking something in the cave that was preventing me from reaching the non existent other end that I ended up “cheating” by consulting an online strategy guide, and only then did I realize that traversing the cave had nothing to do with accessing the next town in the game and that Couriway is only a ten second’s walk south of the cave entrance.

Oh well. I’m just really surprised, GameFreak’s made a lot of uncharacteristically player-unfriendly design choices with Pokémon XY, from being unable to make a black player character in spite of having customizable skintones, to being unable to de-equip the skates in spite of them being a selectable inventory item, to the way you can accidentally revive or heal the wrong Pokémon in battle, or flat out waste items/turns due to the interface being changed in a obtuse manner.

Hopefully that stuff gets fixed for the Ruby/Sapphire remakes, because the things they DID get right with X and Y were massive, long overdue improvements to the series.

All these facial expressions are fantastic.

SPOILERS: I just defeated Team Flare

For having saved the world, that was intensely unsatisfying.

Super cute commission for shadowEW :D
 This lovely vaporeon is sharing a tender moment with her mate, wreckerman. He seems like such a tender and kind espeon, gently holding her paw. Prolly telling her how beautiful she looks! &gt;u&lt; &lt;33
Ah gosh this was so nice to draw. Such cuties! And drawing adorable pokemons on soft things is such  a weakness of mine. ;u;
