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.

Generations: Episode 8

This week's Pokemon Generation's short was posted on YouTube earlier today, and in my opinion this is one of their best episodes yet. The latest short features Team Aqua and one of my favorite Legendary Pokemon from Generation 3, Kyogre.

Of course my favorite episode of these shorts is still the one from a couple of weeks ago featuring Ho-Oh and the Legendary Beasts of Johto, but this episode is easily my second favorite at the moment. My favorite part of this week's short is the scene where Kyogre first awakens.

Sun and Moon Evolutions

Another trailer for Pokemon Sun and Moon has posted today on YouTube. This trailer mostly showcases evolved forms for some of the new Pokemon being introduced in these games, and also introduces two new human characters as well as the Alolan vari...

Generations: Episode 6

I don't know how many of you reading have been following the series of shorts known as Pokemon Generations, but I can say with experience that the six episodes that they've done so far have been very good. The sixth episode of the series, which was posted on YouTube earlier today, is so far my favorite episode in the series. The main reason is because it depicts the legend behind some of my favorite Legendary Pokemon from the games, Ho-Oh and Johto's Legendary Beasts. Now since I'm guessing I'll have problems embedding the short in this post, I'm just going to put in a link to the episode on YouTube.

One of the most well-done things about this sixth episode is the music. They did a good job with incorporating variants of Ho-Oh's legendary battle theme from the games along with the battle theme for the Legendary Beasts.

Postponement Yet Again

Hello again everyone. I hate to do this again, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to postpone this week's edition of Mega Factor yet again. Not only did I have another case of writer's block, I was also a little too wiped out to work on the post last night after the day I had. So I'm going to have to postpone again for a little while. I'm also thinking of moving the Mega Factor series to another day of the week, as it's now getting harder to write these posts on a Tuesday night.

So until next time, I apologize yet again for another delay.
