Old Updates

Here, you can read all the updates on this site since October 25th 2003 and some of the ones from September and August 2003 - the site has been around since November 2nd 2002, but unfortunately most of the updates from the first year were never archived. Be advised that some links might take you to outdated sections or something else that has been taken off the site - I do not necessarily endorse the content of any such sections.

03/31/23: The True Walking Wake

I have added a new, groundbreaking fan theory concerning Walking Wake and the mysterious drawing from the Scarlet Book. I'm sure you will all find it extremely illuminating.

And finally, I have made some important quality improvements to the Favorite Pokémon Picker. Let me know which Lechonk is your favorite.

03/28/23: Walking Wake and Iron Leaves

Somehow I simply forgot about adding Walking Wake and Iron Leaves to the Favorite Pokémon Picker. They have been added now and are available for selection if you have Gen IX selected.

03/09/23: More Scarlet and Violet

I've finished updating various other pages around the site to include Scarlet and Violet stuff - this includes the Battling Basics, Battle Mechanics, Status Ailments and Stat Stages, none of which I had actually properly updated for Sword and Shield either when they came out. Relatedly, I have begun to regret my choices in creating several different pages with comprehensive lists of everything relevant to X, which thereby obligate me to update them with the ever-growing list of things that might be relevant to X every time a new game comes out, long past the point the lists have grown to be so long most people's eyes probably glaze over, and with the inevitability that at some point I'll miss some information that ought to be updated there. But I also hate the idea of just removing some nicely compiled information just because it's tedious to keep it up-to-date, so for now, at least, these lists are still there, and should now hopefully be up-to-date. As always, let me know if you spot any errors or ommissions in all this.

Anyway, now that that's done, time for me to get properly sunk back into the R/S/E roulette minigame.

02/27/23: Subtle Shinies

Happy Pokémon Day! I've now put up a page on subtle shinies in Scarlet and Violet - a page that I immediately found myself wanting as I played the game with a constant sense of paranoia that maybe some of the Pokémon I was walking past were shiny and I just couldn't tell. It's a list of shinies in the Paldea Pokédex, found in the wild, that are relatively similar to their regular versions, in a way where you might see them in passing or in unusual lighting and simply not notice it's not the usual color.

Since the page is made on the basis of me just looking at pictures of the normal and shiny versions side by side out of context (I am not the sort of person who would ever even dream of trying to have a living shiny dex), I'm sure you all might have some feedback on Pokémon I've missed that are actually pretty fiendish, or Pokémon I didn't put on the "Most Subtle" list that are actually subtler than some that I did - by all means bring on that feedback and let me know.

02/13/23: Welcome to Paldea

Gen IX updates are here, finally! First, the new content: capture mechanics and a catch rate calculator for Scarlet and Violet.

I've also updated the Interactive Type Chart, Pokémon List Generator, Fun Facts, Evolution List, Hangman and Number Game to include the Pokémon from Legends: Arceus and Scarlet and Violet. There are some odds and ends here and there that should also be updated but I believe that covers the main things that glaringly needed it.

As always, please let me know if anything's weird or off or missing!

01/24/23: Fanfic Updates

S/V content is coming, but in the meantime, I have put up a new fanfic - Go, a one-shot about what if Pokémon Go in its early days became real. Technically it was written for a contest in 2016, but I never put it up here because I didn't like it enough; now I've edited it to be reasonably happy with it, so here it is.

Alongside this, I decided to spruce up the fanfiction section a little bit. Lately I've been drawing cover art for my fanfics, so I figured I may as well include that there with them - and because Morphic and its seven billion extras was dominating the vertical space on that page a bit, I decided to give it its own page (and, while I was at it, mention there how old it is and that I'm working on a rewrite). Hopefully this makes it all a bit nicer to look at!

01/03/23: Happy new year!

A little late for my usual New Year's update because I've been abroad! I hope you're all having a good 2023 so far.

I'm planning some more S/V content, but I've got various other things I need to get into first, so please bear with me for a little while. In the meantime, I'd like to extend my usual New Year's Thanks to:

  • ...all of my lovely internet friends, you all know who you are <3
  • ...but an extra special one to Jackie, Chibi and elyvorg, who I got to see in person this year and have some great times with
  • ...Negrek and the Thousand Roads fanfic community, my primary home on the internet these days
  • ...Tetra, for running the Adventure Quest RP in which I had a lot of fun writing some May
  • ...Latios of the newly-resurrected Shining Misdreavus, for reviving an old community and good nostalgic discussions
  • ...Quiara, who was persistent enough to prod me again after three years into doing some fascinating research on the R/S/E roulette minigame (coming to a Cave of Dragonflies near you)
  • ...my husband Shadey, for continuing to be quality husband
  • ...our cat Birta, for continuing to be quality cat
  • ...my parents, who are good
  • ...everyone still frequenting and creating old-school websites in this day and age
  • ...everyone who has read my fanfics
  • ...my ever-gracious patrons

Happy new year, and I'll see you next update!
