The Day of Nidoran♀ in the Reign of Latias, Season of Water: New Zodiac

Aaaand the sixth-generation Zodiac is finally up, after about five rounds of going painstakingly over every single day or even every single Pokémon species to make some unimportant change nobody but me will probably care about. I might fiddle more with the look of the Zodiac images later, but whatever; for now they're definitely sufficient. They're a bit bigger than before and use Dream World art, since X/Y don't have sprites and still shots of the models ripped from screenshots tend to look visibly subpar despite the general awesomeness of the actual animated models.

Because the Zodiac's numbers work out amazingly with the unreleased event legendaries from X/Y included, and otherwise I'd have had to update it with them later somehow anyway, they will appear as question marks in the Zodiac until they are officially released. This is partly for the sake of those who are avoiding spoilers and partly simply because there is no actual artwork I could use for them. As soon as they're released and have Dream World art, the Zodiac and the Zodiac images will be updated accordingly.

As always, please report any bugs or errors you might discover.

There are no more Pokémon than those three - unless they were to literally patch the game adding even more event legendaries that aren't present in the code at all currently, which I doubt since they bothered putting these in ahead of time, we know them all.

Mewtwo gets his own one-day season because otherwise one of the other seasons would have to be one day longer than the others. There's an in-universe basis for treating Mewtwo differently, since he's a clone of a legendary but man-made, but there is no such in-universe basis for the Season of the Air to be longer than the Seasons of the Earth.

(Why not just five equal-length seasons, like the third- and fifth-generation zodiacs? Because then the reigns wouldn't have split evenly into the seasons. The third-generation zodiac had each season end with a day in the reign of Mewtwo, which is hardly better, and the fifth-generation zodiac made one reign per season longer than the others on the basis of highlighting one cute event legendary per generation, but that wouldn't work here since then there'd be six generations but only five seasons..)

Also, why is Mewtwo in his own one day season at the end of the year? Is their a reason for it, because Season doesn't seem like it is the right word.

Watch more Pokemon become released than just the three already discovered ones.

Yay! I got chimecho! After spending hours searching for one on Emerald, I really appreciate them. Last time I got my second-favorite legendary, Ho-oh, though.

(As a side note, all my és are literal, and even if they weren't they would have to be in that file since it's a plaintext file.)

It's working fine for you because I already fixed it as soon as eevee_em posted about it.

eevee_emQvalador: It's just a problem with the HTTP header. All that Butterfree needs to do is make sure that the file is being served as UTF-8.

eevee_em: It's actually working just fine for me; the only reason it would do that is if she put an actual é instead of "é" or whatever she uses for it. But it's displaying perfectly fine for me, in Chrome, so maybe it's just weird for Firefox?

I WAS a Miltank in the previous Zodiac, but now I'm a Weedle, which is a surprising change. I like Miltank and the Weedle family, but I don't tend to use either of them very much. Maybe I should try out training a Beedril like I did in Red? T'would be fun, indeed.

"I don't know if this is a coincidence or if somebody at Game Freak is a fan of my site …"

Further proof that you are Satoshi Tajiri! *shot*

But seriously, great job with the new zodiac. I got the Blitzel line for my B-day, which I like much better than the Tympole line I got last time. Also, my favorite Pokemon overall (Persian) and my favorite evolution line (the eeveelutions) are both in the reign of my favorite legendary (Mew) and right next to each other. I find this way more amusing than I should.

(BTW, the text page showing the whole zodiac displays Flabebe as Flabébé, at least in Firefox).

It's the day of the entire family, so you can just as well call yourself a Blastoise.

Cool, so now I'm a Squirtle instead of a bad-ass Empoleon or Prinplup or whatever I was.

OMG! I got Lugia! Finally, the first time a TCoD zodiac has my birthday assigned to a Pokémon I like since the very first one! :D
