Finalize! Red Joker!

I swear I didn’t mean to take nine months.   The plan was to take a short break to detach from Tribe and switch mindsets, then get a small headstart before I began posting. Then Life happened. And Hobbies happened. And Writer’s Block happened. And then I realized it would be really cool to post it on Mega Man’s 30th anniversary, but just recently I remembered today is Star Force’s 11th anniversary so I moved it up…a little…   Anyway, partly to celebrate both these anniversaries, and partly t

Potential Technic Fighting Series Revival No One Asked For

“Technic Fighting Series” is long-winded and bland but this isn’t really Coliseum or Tournament and it’s definitely not Warzone so I didn’t know how else to get the point across, ANYWAY.   I’m thinking of taking another crack at this series with Technic Survival, not in any way influenced by the current Dragon Ball arc I don’t know where you’re getting that, but I’m very hesitant. Mainly because the idea here is team vs team, and to do that I’ll need a decent number of players, which I’m not su

Ultra Sunset

Hm.   Well I finished Ultra Sun’s story and post-game episode. My feelings are mixed.   There are a lot of things added to the game that I like, but there are two big things that irritate me. One is that it felt a good deal harder than SuMo, which I already didn’t think was particularly easy, but I know, git gud and all that, whatever. The second is that I…guess I had my hopes for the story too high.         Well, either way, here’s my team: -Fistleo the Incineroar -Tempo the Dusk Form Lycanr

Ultra Sunrise

I've gotten a few hours into Ultra Sun. There have been some ups and downs, but progress is being made, and I'm eager to see what else awaits. I was able to get the special Rockruff and evolve it into Dusk Lycanroc (by messing with the 3DS clock, that works in case you want to know), started with Litten to round out my Living Dex, and I managed to catch a Pichu and eventually evolve it into a Pikachu. (You can get Soothe Bell fairly early on, that was a nice surprise.)   Also, Route 1 has Munc

My NEW Worst Idea Ever

You thought RoboRiders Mafia was a bad idea, get a load of this.   Glinch Festival   Every player gets assigned one of four species from Galidor, and then each round they target another player and say which of their limbs they want to swap. So Player A can target Player B’s Left Arm, and boom, they switch Left Arms. The goal is to end up with one limb from every species.   Plus maybe one or two Royals inserted who are wild cards, one of their limbs can be counted as any other species you need.

Gold Team Rules

(In which this morphs more and more into a straight-up Pokemon blog maybe I should find a new hobby for some variety)   I’ve still been playing VC Gold, though it’s been sort of an on-and-off thing. There have been a few places where I’ve realized I needed to buckle down and grind, and that’s…not the most fun you can have with a Pokémon game, so it was rarely a speedy event. But I managed to get past the League on my first attempt, and getting through Kanto after that was rather brief. Then c

Personal Ranking of Pokemon Regions

Because why not. Subject to change as time goes on, surely, but as of right now, here’s how I feel about the seven main series regions.   1. Sinnoh, to the surprise of no one. You’re probably saying this is solely based on nostalgic bias, and that is a huge part of it, I’ll admit that. Pokémon Diamond was what brought me back into Pokémon, and it and Platinum were the first times I started to really consume all the data I could about the games, which set the trend going forward. Sinnoh’s the

The Thing About Lillie

You’ve played Pokémon Sun and Moon, you know who Lillie is, she doesn’t need much introduction. It surely comes as little to no surprise that I love Lillie, and while it is due to the main reasons anyone loves her (she’s Totally Adorable and a Well-Developed Character), I’ve recently come to feel that she’s actually rather fascinating when you look at her as a writing technique.   So: player characters in Pokémon. They aren’t characters, really. They’re consistently left totally and completel

"Our creators were very rigid beings through and through."

It is with great pleasure that I announce a new epic, Out of Bounds!   This story takes place roughly 200 years after the Reformation of Spherus Magna. When Turaga Nokama becomes frustrated with the limitations of Noble Kanohi, Vhisola goes looking for a way to work around the strict mechanics of the masks of power. Her best bet comes in a job offer from Nuhrii, and so she and Ehrye set out for the Northern Frost, where rumor has it they’ll find a lab with lost technology that just might be wh

802 Already

It still feels like Gen VII just stared, but we’re already getting the last Pokémon in the current National Dex order!   Stop by GameStop between now and the 23rd to get a code to download Marshadow, the very first Fighting/Ghost type! It’ll also come with Marshadium Z, letting Marshadow use its unique Z Move, Soul-Stealing Seven Star Strike. How cool does that sound?   Just about a month until Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! With the reveal of new Ultra Beasts, I can’t help but wonder if more Myth

Alola Has a Post-Game Now!

Holy wow. So we’ve got two new trailers for USUM, one that’s really dramatic and awesome (and in Japanese), and that’s highly informative (in English).  Ha…where do I start?   -It looks like Necrozma’s goal is to steal light from the world. There’s a new area you can travel to where apparently it did just that, and it seems to be the gist of what’s going on in the dramatic trailer. Would also explain why it wants to absorb Solgaleo and Lunala. -So, where is this lightless world, you ask?

Guest Stars Wanted, Apply Within

Well, I think it’s time.   If you didn’t know, I’ve been putting together a new idea for an epic, taking place in a new world named Olkir. The full primer can be found here, but essentially the idea was to mash concepts from both generations of Bionicle, as well as Slizers, RoboRiders, and Hero Factory, into one fantasy world. (Though…since G1 has more content to play with than all those others combined, the end result is something that could probably be termed a fanmade Bionicle G3 story.) Thi

Fanfic in Progress

Someone recruits for a heist, there's a battle between two giant monsters, and then a Glatorian has to try to explain what love is.to two Matoran.   I'm only half-way done.

Golden Memories

VC Gold and Silver are out, in case you forgot. I got Gold. I was a little unsure, but in the end, the opportunity presented itself and I just couldn’t resist.   And again, the Pokémon distribution seems odd, though part of it might just be which Pokémon I wanted. Plus there seem to be some limitations on the movesets that I sort of expected coming off of VC Red—it seems like, in later generations, Pokémon get access to (better) STAB moves earlier than they did in the first few generations, b

One Last Prelude

I got an itch to start up a new game, and after discarding a bunch of half-ideas, I realized this could actually be a great chance to get more people interested in Olkir.   Hence, Olkir Tournament! Not a very creative name, I know. You’ll use the mechanics detailed in the topic to create your own weapon and ability, and then I’ll start randomly matching you up with other players to fight. You have to PM me a strategy each round, similar to the old Technic Coliseum, and see if you can outwit y

To Cap It Off

Another Pokémon distribution is kicking off, but this one’s a little more complex than usual.   A code just went up on the Pokémon website (PIKACHU20) that will allow you to download a special Pikachu wearing Ash’s cap. This Pikachu also comes with a unique Z Crystal, Pikashunium Z, letting it use its own super-exclusive Z Move, 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt!   But! While you can only enter the code once, when you enter it will determine which cap the Pikachu is wearing. Of course, if you have

Pokemon Ultra News

is out for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Key points:  -The mascots are, as theorized, Necrozma having absorbed Solgaleo/Lunala. The forms are referred to as Dusk Mane and Dawn Wings, respectively, and enable usage of Solgaleo and Lunala’s signature moves. -The special Rockruff has the ability Own Tempo, and knows special moves which differ slightly between US and UM. It evolves into Dusk Lycanroc when hitting level 25 between 5 and 6 PM (that’s such a narrow window argh). There’s also an exclusi

Last Trial

To further expand upon the world of Olkir, I’ve posted The Twins of Justice in short stories!   It’s about the same length as the last one, and centers around an idea that…might not make an appearance in the final story, but I think it’s a neat concept with potential so I wanted to do at least one small thing with it. It also shows two elemental weapons in action: the Sun Gun I’ve mentioned a few times before, and a Jungle weapon named the Viridian Bow, which is actually something that’s been s

School of the Blazing Soul

I wanted to do at least a few more short things fleshing out certain ideas relevant to the Olkir project, and one of the first things that came to mind was Kardata. Since the martial arts style is basically the Fire Tribe’s sole claim to fame, it’s going to turn up a lot even if it isn’t strictly plot relevant, so I definitely should hammer out basics before I get much deeper. I was originally going to post it here in this blog, but then I thought putting it in short stories and then continuin

Death to the Coronet

Remember when I said For Coronet and Cancellation [slizer Mafia 3] was going to be the end of the Slizer Mafia series? Yeah...I did mean that, but with it going the way it did it still feels super open-ended, and it's been bugging me.   The way I see it, this story isn't over until the villain it centers around is dead. Call them whatever you want--the Skull Slizer, the Judge Coronet, or just the Coronet Slizer--but it's high time for their demise.   Hence, Slizer Mafia: The Final Refrain.   I

Thirteen Years

As of today, I’ve been on BZPower for 13 years. Being 24 years old, that means I’ve been on this site for over half of my entire life, so I guess that’s kinda cool. Let’s see how productive this past year was for me:   -Wrote An End Escaped, which I rather like -Hosted Slizer Mafia 2: Okotans’ Revenge, which I think went well -Hosted Slizer Dome US, which did not go so well -Finished Shooting Star Sonia 2, ending up with a 100k word story that I wrote in roughly a year while holding myself to

Come Play Wall of History!

Signups for my new game Wall of History will remain open for 72 hours!   Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The inhabitants of Stoeia-Nui are learning this lesson the hard way as they struggle to endure an attack by the legendary demon Makuta, just as their ancestors did ten thousand years ago. There does exist a record of Makuta’s previous attack, but no one can read the language it is written in, leaving any hints that might lie within just beyond their reach. The v
