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.

Mewtwo Rocks!

I was going through some old posts in my Random Thoughts world and found this cool music video featuring Mewtwo. So I decided to repost it here. Enjoy.

New Design

Most of you have probably noticed that I changed the design of this world a bit. I added a background picture that I found. It looks okay, but I think it could be better. I'd really like to hear what all of you think of the new design though, so please comment and tell me what you think. And if you have any suggestions to make the design better, by all means share.

Also (and I hope I'm not coming off as desperate for bringing this up), I'd like to remind everyone that if you'd like to be a guest poster here, just let me know.

First Story Finished

For those of you who're interested, I've just finished my first Pokemon fanfic. It's called Fire for Ice, and you can read it here on TheO in my Tales of Light and Darkness world, or you can read it on Fan Fiction.Net. Fairly soon I plan to start my next Pokemon fanfic. It's called Trial of the Phoenix, and it takes place a decade before the events of Fire for Ice. For today though I'm going to try and relax, because I think I slept on my neck wrong last night.

Fire for Ice

Summery: An AU to the anime set ten years after the events of the Johto League. Two young lovers are separated by geography and the machinations of Team Rocket. As they push through the obstacles before them to get back together...
