Welcome to Pokemon Cupboard, a world for fans of all things Pokemon!

This is a world where I’ll be posting various things about the Pokemon franchise. Here I plan to talk about some of my favorite Pokemon, favorite locations in the games, perhaps reminisce about playing the games or my favorite episodes of the anime, and maybe much more.

About Me

I got into Pokemon during the mid to late nineties. At first didn’t want anything to do with Pokemon. Back then it was part of my nature to rebel against all things popular. But my opinion about Pokemon changed significantly after seeing the first four or five episodes of the anime. I got into the series and soon wanted to play the games. That Christmas I believe I had received a Gamboy Color and the Blue version of the Pokemon game.

Eventually I also played the Red and Yellow versions, mostly to see how they differed from Blue. I played the games that followed up until Ruby and Sapphire. At that point the anime had started to go downhill. I really didn’t like it when they replaced Misty with that girl May and her annoying little brother Max (god how I loath him). The games started to lose their appeal too. I didn’t like how Ruby and Sapphire didn’t have a lot of the Pokemon from previous games. Of course at the time I didn’t realize that they were going to do remakes of the first generation games.

Still, by that point I was no longer as into Pokemon as I once was. My focus had turned more to Yu-Gi-Oh! and other things. But I still keep tabs on the Pokemon franchise. I think that the anime is a lost cause, but I have read about the newer games, some of which actually look pretty good. I’m also currently working on a Pokemon Fan Fiction project. So in short I’m basically an old-school Pokemon fan.

My interest in Pokemon ebbs every now and then. So to make things more fun and keep this world alive, I’m going to allow other Pokemon fans here on TheO to post things here. So like me you could post things about your favorite Pokemon or talk about your favorite anime episodes. But you can do so much more too.

  • If you play the games, you could use this world as sort of a journal and share your adventure with everyone. It doesn’t have to be the mainstream Pokemon games either; it could be Pokemon Conquest or one of the consol games.
  • Another use for this world could be to post Pokemon fanfics you may have created. Or perhaps share the profiles of your Pokemon OCs (if you have any).
  • Maybe you have some big Pokemon related art project you want to share. You could use this world to chronicle its creation.

You could do all that and much, much more. As long as it has to do with Pokemon, the sky’s the limit. So if you’re interested in becoming a guest poster, or maybe just have a few questions, please contact me via comment or PM and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Mega Evolution Activation

Sorry I haven't been posting in this world during the past week or so. There's kind of a news lull on, and some of you reading may already know, I haven't been having the best week. But I seem to be doing a lot better now. Anyway, I decided to take a quick look at the X and Y stuff on Serebii.net and I ended up taking a closer look at the Mega Evolution page. The page has been updated with details on how Mega Evolutions are activated.

Basically it works like this. In order for the Pokemon in question to "evolve", it has to be holding the appropriate Mega Stone. Rather than the transformation happening automatically, the player triggers it by selecting a special button in the menu while picking an attack. The Pokemon then "evolves" and launches an attack in the same turn. I'm sure there's a lot more about this interesting new game mechanic that's left to be revealed, so I'll keep my eyes open. For now, stay tuned.

The Origins Trailer

As promised, here's the trailer for the new Pokemon anime, Pokemon the Origins. Take a look. ...

Bits of News

There have been a few news updates over the last couple of days. According to Serebii,net, the new game demo of X and Y reveals that Mega Evolutions seem to involve a button that appears in the battle menu. This probably means that Mega Evolutions don't activate automatically. Another detail that's been revealed is that Fariy-type attacks aren't very effective against Fire Pokemon. I'm not sure how that makes sense, but okay.

The biggest news in the past couple of days is the preview for a brand new Pokemon anime. It's going to be called Pokemon Origin, and is based heavily on the first generation games. And rather than Ash, the protagonist of the series is going to be Red, the very first player character of the games. There has been a trailer for the series which I'll try to post later this evening. So stay tuned.
