  1. The End of an Era: Former TCG Champion Gives Up the Ghost-type

    "Sold" by Kentucky Fried Torchic
    (Sung to the tune of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails)

    I sold my cards today
    To see how much I'd make
    A buck for five hundred
    This has to be a fake

    But they are taking space
    And have seen better days
    I focus on the dough
    And sold them anyways

    What have I just done
    My cardboard friends
    Every card I own
    (Well, those without a bend)
    ...
  2. Moonlight Silver episode 104--The Afterpost

    This week, Misty competes in a Power-type Pokethlon for her seventh medal, allowing Ami a chance to redeem herself after a less than stellar showing earlier.

    This episode got a major rewrite thanks to Poliwhirl being cut. That said, it was very easy to turn this into a Pokethlon once I rewrote the plot and kicked Team Rocket out--cutting Delaney and making Mason one of Misty's competition.

    Misty's stat list that Casey gave to her in universe is the same list on Bulbapedia--so ...

  3. Moonlight Silver episode 103--The Afterpost

    This week, Kamon tries to crash an episode of "Oak's Pokemon Talk"--only for his charade to be unmasked!

    This episode still retained its basic plot after I replaced Team Rocket with Kamon--The only major change I had to make was changing Kamon's challenge (and what Oak attempts to do at the beginning) from poetry to storytelling (to also set up for Brock earning his indigo Lore Stripe offscreen)

    Instead of Kamon looking up the answers on a cheat sheet like Team ...

  4. Moonlight Silver episode 102--The Afterpost

    This week, Brock saves an entertainer's show when Team Rocket crashes it to take her Igglybuffs!

    This episode got majorly rewritten--no more is "Takeshi no Paradaisu" the only song Brock knows! In keeping with his remixed personality as a singer-storyteller, he knows a WHOLE lot more than that in the remixed canon. I also explained the origin of the mariachi suit--it is one of several costumes Brock has (and characters to go with them), when he wants to tell a specific type ...

  5. Moonlight Silver episode 101--The Afterpost

    This week, what starts as a rivalry between Misty and the Fire Trainer Egan ultimately becomes a friendship.

    At first, Kamon was going to make an appearance towards the end, replacing Team Rocket. But the further along I got, and saw that Egan catching the Magcargo with the added wrinkle of his relationship with Misty made a perfectly decent plot, I decided that maybe we didn't need a villain butting in at all, and cut Kamon out as well.

    It was a lot of fun writing ...

  6. Moonlight Silver episode 99--The Afterpost

    This week, Ash and the gang learn that the old man that rescued them during the battle with the Rockets is the Gym Leader, Pryce--and that he was not always a cynic.

    This episode was fairly easy to write, considering the epic storyline we just concluded and the Gym match that will serve as the 100th episode of the story. Once Episode 100 goes up next week, there will be 22 more episodes left in the story (the remix of Gotta Catch You Later is actually the story's epilogue rather than ...

  7. Moonlight Silver episode 98--The Afterpost

    This week, the battle at the Lake of Rage continues, complete with Lance revealed to know the Swanna Song.

    Parts of this episode were dramatically rewritten to account for Ethan and Lyra being added in--rather than the group rushing Team Rocket in the prison, I thought it would be funnier for the Rockets to be asleep on the job, allowing Lyra time to bail our heroes out. The Rockets still get a chance to chase them, however.

    From this point on, the Rockets' appearances ...

  8. Moonlight Silver episode 97--The Afterpost

    This week, the final battle with Team Rocket begins as the Trio with help from Ethan, Lyra, and Lance, race to stop Team Rocket from beginning their ultimate plan--Project R.

    This episode was dramatically rewritten to more closely match the games--this is why Ethan is at the Radio Tower kicking out the Rockets, while everyone else is at the Lake of Rage. In addition, Professor Sebastian and Tyson were replaced with Archer and Proton, also to more closely match the games (Ariana and ...

  9. Moonlight Silver episode 96--The Afterpost

    This week, our heroes encounter the ghost-girl Lokoko and her Ninetales, which leads Ash and Misty to race to figure out the mansion's secret before Brock is trapped there forever!

    The biggest change to this episode was replacing Team Rocket with Kamon, as this particular plot sounded like something he would do. Lokoko's master and the Ninetales also got names, in an attempt to give them more meaning to the plot.

    I also tried to make it clearer to the audience Tenko ...

  10. Moonlight Silver episode 95--The Afterpost

    This week, Misty wins her sixth Pokethlon medal defending Ash's honor from Gary!

    This episode was dramatically rewritten--not only was Phanpy cut (as Ash's Johto team is complete at this stage, so he does not need any more Pokemon), the competition was also rewritten into a Pokethlon--so it is still important, just part of a different character's storyline.

    Ash's meeting with Gary at the end also foreshadows Gary stepping down as a trainer at the end of the Johto League--I ...
