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.

Guest Posters

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.

Episode N Update

I have some late-breaking news concerning the Episode N event taking place in the Pokemon anime next year. And by late-breaking I mean that I found out about it this morning and didn't have time to post about it. Plus I forgot to post about it when I did my Interesting Specimen post for the week. Anyway, I found out some more details about the Episode N event from seribii.net. And I'm going to ignore the spoilers and just talk about characters and Pokemon that might and will appear.

From what i was able to find out from the posters concerning the event, in addition to N, Ghetsis and Corless will also be appearing. Not only that, but Ghetsis is shown wearing his Black 2/ White 2 outfit, which means that the division in Team Plasma may have already taken place in the anime. Also, Team Rocket (or at least the trio), is also going to be making a comeback and are apparently going to have some new Pokemon in their possession. Of course whether or not these new Pokemon are completely new ones or just ones evolved from the Unova Pokemon they already had is unknown. Also, from what I could tell from one of the posters, Reshiram is most likely going to appear. And in the same poster there's a holoscreen in front of Corless that seems to show Genesect.

So that's all I know for now. I'll try and update if I learn anything new.

Interesting Specimen: Nidoran
