...I just looked at that image again, and only just noticed that the Pokérus icon says Brave Bird. Missed that the first time.

EDIT: And that it's apparently Brave/Bird-type. Either a lot of this is very subtle or I'm not very observant.

Just hold down the D-Pad and go! But this artist decides to take it to the next level by depicting not just Serena on a bicycle but giving her a side carriage for Talonflame and the eggs to ride in as well. It even has Talonflame being the one to tell her when the first egg is starting to hatch! Adorable.
That is cool. Kinda feel like I'm the only one who hatched Eggs in Y by rollerskating back and forth along Route 7, though. And it's worked pretty well for me, too- it's actually gotten me a Shiny Hoppip and Illumise by complete accident, when my thumb slipped on the circle pad. But I'm getting off-topic here- I like how Talonflame is alerting Serena to one of the Eggs hatching. That's cute.

I, for one, always appreciate more Talonflame artwork. ^_^

It's amusing to read through the comments and see how much different people's egg-hatching habits vary. I was especially surprised that no one seems to share mine! Once I've amassed a full party of eggs, I have a designated route that takes me through the vast majority of the region without encountering any pokemon. Although, this was easier in Gen V, but I've managed to make it work in VI... Somehow~

My AS method is stick Volcarona in front (because I have like 5 from how many gen V runs I've done), ride circles around the Battle Resort, drop off hatchlings in the box, and pick up eggs as they're made.

Same here, only I use basically anything with Flame Body or Magma Armor. I restricted myself to Talonflame and Volcarona in Y (and a Fletchinder at one point, I believe), but now that soaring is a thing and breeding can be done within walking distance of the IV judge anyway, I feel free to use stuff like Magmortar or Magcargo- the latter of whom was actually my very first Flame Body Egg hatcher, and also the reason I elected to evolve my FB Slugma into Magcargo while posting in the Egg House.

This artpiece from herzspalter affectionately tongue in cheek's the shocking news that we won't be getting a Pokémon Z.



This "Deal "-style picture of Drifloon skiing reminded me of Yuki. Sharing this principally for her. The picture comes to us courtesy of floons, a Tumblr account that follows the "ask a question, get a cute answer and sometimes fanart" vein of accounts.




This Zootopia crossover comes from kirbopher on Tumblr. I was reminded of Daisy when I saw it and am sharing it principally for her.

This one comes from Kou's Pixiv account. Celebrating 20 years of Pokémon, we have an artpiece that can be interpreted several different ways. I like it.

This looks more like one of the Ice Climbers imo. Plus the back one's a Diglett on a snowboard.

Amazing what having to avoid spoilers for a year and a half can do ...

I've been looking up fanart a lot today, and one of the pieces I just recently found is my first big find I'm prompted to share with all of you. You remember the guy who did the really awesome fanart that shows Professor Oak looking at a photograph from his past? You know the one:


Well, apparently he's been working on a pet project off and on over the past five years. It's called 【王者の祭典】, which loosely translates either as "The King's Festival" or "The Champion's Festival". It's a story which, in its fourth chapter, culminates in Red, Green, and Blue all arriving at the titular tournament. It's now nine chapters in, and in the eighth and nine chapters, we get to see Green taking on his first-round opponent ... Karen, the Dark-type master and here a candidate for the Elite Four. When our story takes place, the original Elite Four -- Lorelei, Bruno, Agatha, and Lance -- are all still present and accounted for. But Karen, Will, and Koga are all also enrolled in this tournament. And for her first opponent, Karen has the grandson of the world-famous professor from Pallet Town ...





(click any for full size; even bigger sizes are available from the Pixiv source)

The art is pretty darn good. The storytelling is not half bad either. It reads like an 8/10 fanfic or better, YMMV. If you want to start earlier, you can. (I later went back and read some earlier chapters.) If you want to start here, you can too. The two chapters, 08 and 09, do enough to show you both Green's side of things and Karen's. Earlier chapters might shed some light on why this particular fight might be a little traumatic for Green, but that's icing on an otherwise ready-to-eat cake.

When I read through these chapters, I frequently thought of you guys (in the ASB). It feels very much like what I imagine a dream ASB battle is to some of you. I'm sure there's lots here for some of you to hate, but I imagine for others it's going to be distilled Elysium even if you can't read what the characters are saying.

For those who can, it's a surprisingly well thought-out story. I like a lot of his headcanon takes on the various characters, even if they won't all overwrite my own. It's interesting to see what his interpretation of "the Evil Type" is. And because so much of the presentation reads like an episode straight out of the Johto League-era anime, it's kinda fun to see what his own "What if I got to write an episode of the Pokémon anime ...?" take on things is like.

So check it out if you like. Chapter 8 is here, and Chapter 9 is here.

Hahaha, so, it's been a while since I last posted here. And it just so happens ... that I'm back with more Festival of Champions to share.


In January, Pixiv artist 清順(トンボ)posted the tenth chapter in their Festival of Champions series. You may remember that it was roughly one year ago when I posted about Chapters 08 and 09. So it's been a while to get here. But oh what a wait it was worth.



The artwork!



The intensity!

And best of all ...?

Someone's beaten me to the punch. I was thinking this might present a fun translation project, but it looks like someone my better has already taken it upon themselves to share this treat with the English-speaking world. So buckle up and enjoy, 'cause all ten chapters are available for you to read in English.

That smile of Umbreon's at the end though ... ^^;
