Hello there, it's finally time! I'm making the club I've wanted to make. Allow me to try to make a successful club for our beloved and important trainer, Iris!



Signing up qualifications:
None, as of currently. As long as you like Iris and want to join, that's fine.

Fan club rules:
1. Follow the rules of PokeCommunity.
2. Be respectful and kind to one another.
* PokeCommunity are especially not meant to be a haven of trolls. Do not pick on other users, that includes covertly and less obvious forms.
3. Please contribute and be active. We don't necessarily need spam. But reasonable posts that contribute, if just saying things like "Iris is awesome because..." will do a lot to keep the club alive.
4. No generally offensive materials to innocent human beings.
* I know that not everyone agrees and there are naturally divisive subjects in the world. But think of your words this way, do my words come off as attack an innocent members of a group of people? Or, would my words come off as offensive to most Iris fans? It is okay to voice a controversial opinion, but try to be within reason.
5. Temporary measure: Please do not talk about Pokemon Black & White 2 spoilers unless in [*spoil er] brackets.

Why you should join and why you should be a fan of Iris:
Spoiler:
A quick little, well, maybe not little, but explanation of what I, personally believe, is awesome and appeals to me about Iris, in spoilers.
Spoiler:
Iris is an amazing character with a awesome personality in many ways.

She is also an exceptional character in general, I think. And also a very prominent character, making for a lot to like and talk about.In Pokemon Black, the original, Iris is a great "supporting" character. She may not be gym leader, but she is a great character who's personality shines. Being very useful to the protagonist and multiple other characters. She is boisteruous, plucky, confident, and powerful to back it up. And it takes that sort of person to boldly suggest they be a bodyguard. She is strong, and expresses her strongness in an effort to take care of those she cares about, because she can. Neither anywhere close to a doormat or selfish, there is a reasonable amount of generosity and morality along with her strength. And she is a great role model and image for not just little girls, but females and people in general. There is a great burning fire of sorts in her, that is infectious.

Not to mention she is an extremely noteworthy trainer. Being the person between all trainers and the Legend Badge. And Dragons over level 40. Quite challenging and a force to be reckoned with. And certainly one of the most powerful trainers in the Pokemon world. Iris, from the beginning, has not only given off having a strong personality, but of elite trainer abilities. Iris is one of the most difficult trainers you will face in Pokemon White.

In the Pokemon "Best Wishes!" anime, Iris isn't quite so elitely powerful and tough as nails. But she is still pretty boisterous and in my opinion, one of the best of Ash's companions in years. She's no coordinator, and brings a great social energy to the table with Ash and Cilan.


All of these things, make in my opinion, Iris a very enjoyable character. She's fun in the anime, she's fun and incredibly tough in the games. And she just has the infectious and lovable sort of personality that hot-blooded and plucky characters tend to have. I think that you can like and respect her because she adds good personal chemistry and energy to the anime, because she is a respectable character in general, in personality and talent, and because Iris is just awesome.

THE FOLLOWING IS A SPOILER
THE FOLLOWING IS A SPOILER
THE FOLLOWING IS A SPOILER
This next part is a spoiler for Pokemon Black and White 2.
If you do not want to be spoiled, do not click the following spoiler button. And even then, it will be removed if it is too much of a spoiler danger, to possibly be reposted several months after Pokemon Black & White 2 has seen international release. I love Iris fans, and the last thing I want to see them spoiled for is, well, new Iris material. Please read at your own risk and please don't spoil yourself unless you really want to.
Spoiler:
Spoiler:
In Pokemon Black & White 2, Iris ascends to being one of the most powerful Dragon trainers the Pokemon world has ever seen. And thus, one of the most powerful trainers the Pokemon world has ever seen.

Iris is the Champion of the Unova League. And in challenge mode she boasts a level 83 Dragon. The highest level for a Champion ever.


When you walk up the ivory steps, the lights turn on, and Iris is there waiting for you. Behind her a gigantic dragon statue, red carpet, and gigantic star mural in the wall behind you with rotating discs. She breaks you off into two sides of the room, and she faces off with you. A gigantic bolt of lighting bursts through the vs. line, stars moving in the background, and Iris looking fiercely determined. Iris is wearing a crown that resembles animal ears, and a regal looking white and pink dress that many have described as "looking like a goddess", "looking like a princess", "looking like a queen", "looking like a magical girl", and even "looking like a Japanese shrine maiden". She fades from black, makes a curling up motion, and then reaches her hands to the ceiling and makes an inaudible roar. And then spreads her arms out and puts a determined look on her face, as if to say "I'm ready for anything". And the battle starts off, the battle pallet changing to stars moving in the skies and moving dark blue clouds on the floor. Much reminiscent of fighting Queen Zeal atop the Black Omen in Chrono Trigger. All as she throws out her first Pokemon, an incredibly high level Hydreigon.


And that, I have to say, is an incredible part for Iris to have in the new game. She is thoroughly strong, thoroughly epic, and I as an Iris fan am so incredibly proud right now and excited. Pokemon White 2 is a must have for any Iris fan. And I think this game is a thorough answer to any doubts anyone may have had about how awesome Iris really is. And is a strong, strong argument in favor of how awesome Iris is. Iris in Pokemon Black & White 2 bring an unparalleled challenge to the Pokemon table. And a very epic experience.


I hate to talk about spoilers so soon, but many of us are already spoiled. And this is an enormous event and argument for how awesome Iris is. If mods think that this spoiler should go, please remove it and give me a message. Really, I think that if many people didn't think of Iris as truly awesome before, they do now. Iris is now a downright
grandiosely epic trainer.


Please don't read that spoiler if you don't want to be spoiled. I just wanted to give an extra warning. The first spoiler is just me talking about Pokemon Black and White the original and the anime. But the second is spoiler material for those who have yet to experience Black and White 2 and don't want to be spoiled.


What I hope to accomplish by this group:
I hope to accomplish a vibrant, positive, and successful thread for an incredibly important and prodigious Pokemon trainer. And I hope, a popular one. One which helps build up a community that is happy and healthy with positive energy. And is also a great resource of materials and fun for Iris fans, to find things from Iris mods for video games, fanart, fanmusic, fanfics, or anything a fan of Iris might want. And hopefully, eventually, we might inspire fan materials ourselves.

Affiliates:
None thus far!

Spoiler:

Pre-Black & White 2 non-spoiler materials:
F- Yeah Iris tumblr
I know there are rules about foul language on here. But this is one of the prominent Iris blogs on tumblr. And completely safe for work.
Edit:
Sorry. Now contains spoilers.

Various Facebook pages:

1.
- This one, though recent, is in my opinion, the best Iris Facebook page. Nothing really controversial, and the opportunity to be lively. I recommend it the most. This also contains spoilers. Sorry, I will sort these better, soon.
2.
- One of the older but emptier Iris pages. It's recommended if you want a secondary page on Facebook to like. Not very lively, but it will show up in your Facebook likes. Before the first page I posted, there really wasn't a choice. It was either this, or the more rude and trollish but lively page I am about to mention. This actually does not contain spoilers that I am aware.
3.
- This was kind of disappointing for me back when I was first looking for an Iris Facebook page/group. It's fine if you're into that sort of humor and thing. But it was once the only lively page for Iris. It also has it's drawbacks for some people. The person acting as Iris is a bit more rude and trollish than I would image her. Out of the 3 pages, this is not the safest, and certainly isn't for everyone. And could be seen as kind of offensive to some. You might enjoy it. But I don't personally recommend it as my top pick. Not trying to be prudish, just recommending things to the best of my ability. It's probably pretty awesome for a lot of people.

Iris trainer mod for Black and White
- Link and description coming

Post-Black & White 2 spoiler materials:

Iris Bulbapedia Article
- It's the page for Iris on the most successful Pokemon wiki out there. It's fun to read.

Iris Deviantart fanpage/group

- It does have spoilers, though they can be avoided. This is your Iris destination on Deviantart.

Iris tag on Pixiv
- Pixiv, as many people know, is much like a Japanese Deviantart. A lot of fanart out there are reposts of Pixiv materials. And I thought maybe many here we not using it as the great resource it is. It's not always complete safe for work. Also, since our Iris isn't the only character with the name Iris, there will be some other materials. However, the vast majority of pictures are incredibly safe and about our Iris, from Pokemon. And it is a great way to find new pictures from Japanese artists. I'm probably going to be reposting some of these pictures here, myself.

Iris Safebooru tag
- Safebooru is like all those other booru sites, but without all the porn stuff. Which is why I'm posting it. It's a great resource for those who want to have more nice Iris pictures, without having to sift through a whole bunch of nsfw material. A lot of these are reposts from pixiv and a lot of Japanese picture sites and the like. Nonetheless it's a great resource which pools a lot of fanart from a lot of Japanese sites.

Iris via Zerochan
- Zerochan is basically a lot like Safebooru, but not quite as good. Still, it's worth checking out because sometimes Zerochan will have some materials that other places like safebooru haven't gotten to yet.

More links and descriptions and materials coming



So, now that you're here. What do you like about Iris?

(And please keep any spoiler information in spoilers)

What do you like about Iris?





Yes. That is what I like about Iris. Axew. And Emolga but that's something else.

They work together so well, and Axew is cute so that's a bonus <3

Iris is utterly wonderful; I'd love to sign-up. ♥


The main things I love about Iris are her pure heart and determination. It's wonderful to see such an inspiring person performing in the way she does, even despite the greatest challenges she faces. She has some adorable moments where she's either cowering from an Ice type or making a funny face at Ash; some brave moments where she's battling a Haxorus or rescuing injured Pokémon; some adventurous moments where she's swinging through the forest or chasing after new Pokémon; and most of all she has the most memorable quotes & catch-phrases we could ask for. Also she has a great taste in Pokémon, as well as her main Pokémon Axew being utterly adorable <3 I was really surprised to hear the B2W2 news though; I never expected that much from her :o

Awww, two new members. That's great! Thanks for stopping by and joining. Welcome! I've now added both of you to the memberlist. It's already starting to feel like a party in here.

Anime Iris is pretty great. Her and Axew and Emolga are adorable together. And yeah, I love how courageous, kind, and funny she is, also. I love the chemistry between not only her and Ash and Cilan, but she has a lot of really amusing moments with her Emolga, too.

I've really, really enjoyed her in the anime. "Best Wishes!" is one of my favourite series thanks to her.

What I like about Iris...?
Aoi Yuuki :D Seriously, the fact that Iris' seiyu is Aoi made me finish Best Wishes which I stopped and made me like the series so much :D
I also love her Kibago because it's so irresistibly cute :D

And Iris seems somehow different from Satoshi's companions so far, pretty much like Dent :D

Welcome! Thank you for joining!

You've been added to the memberlist.

Aoi Yuuki is a great voice actress/seiyuu. I love to listen to her talk in the Japanese version of the anime. Her voice is perfect for Iris. Oh, how I wish they would sell official sub DVDs and Blu-Rays of Pokemon. I would buy them up right away, not the least of which the Best Wishes! series.

And Kibago is great. It's definitely one of the cutest Dragon Pokemon. And yeah, Iris definitely brings something new to the table when it comes to Ash's companions and feels different. I've heard Iris being referred to as a throwback to Misty in terms of personality and disposition. But even then, they're not quite the same. Iris is really unique and interesting, and in my opinion, really refreshing. I think that Pokemon needed a personality like hers in the mix.

So what is everyone's favourite Iris moment? :D

For me it's definitely when she cured Bouffalant's injured hoof in the anime. She was so caring and resourceful and showed perfect trainer skills in getting Tepig & Oshawott to finally work together after all the arguments. Plus she looked hilarious in the wig. x] I also loved when she worked so hard on getting Excadrill to come out of his shell and start battling again like before; it's a huge shame what happened in their first battle after that but it just goes to show how strong their bond used to be back before the Haxorus event. It's slightly confusing why she's training an Excadrill and Emolga though considering she is/wants to be a Dragon type master... I know the stories were perfectly valid as to why she caught them, but I find it a little confusing why they'd include that haha. I expected them to keep it more like Misty where she does mainly catch Water type Pokémon in their journey... I guess it adds some variety though which is good c:

Oh... oh my. That's a difficult one. There's so many moments I like out of around 90 episodes. I may have to think about that a bit. That was definitely a good moment and episode, though.

I'm actually going to go back and re-watch all of the episodes from the beginning of Best Wishes soon. By the time I do that, I may have a better answer to that question.

But yeah, that was a great episode. Episode 66 I believe it was. It was... very afro. And Iris seemed very mature and resourceful. Yes. I also like the Deino episode. And not to be overly predictable, I love many of the moments around her introduction. Like she picked up Pikachu and said it was cute. Aside from character development and deeper sort of situations, there's lots of little cute and funny moments I like.

It is true that Misty did stick more to her type preference. Though she did have Togepi. I think it's realistic and I like how in both the anime and.. other stuff, she's shown to have variety. Dragons are rare, and having type variety is just wise anyway. I'm glad that they're having Iris not only a dragon focused trainer, but one that has a bit of variety to her. And are doing that to new characters in general.

I think it would be nice to see more specialized trainers with more team balance.

Sorry if my post isn't very adequate. Saying what my favourite Iris moment is, is kinda hard. I'll definitely come back and give a better answer to it, though, when I go back and rewatch it. And thanks for sticking around the thread!

I'l Join. Iris is my favorite counterpart in the anime since May. Sorry dawn, your voice was starting to eat my ears and you realy drilled the contest idea into the ground.

Spoiler:
In the games however, none were more shocked than I to see the last gym leader become champion even though we've already had someone who was truely fabulous do that before. She gains points for being more diversified than lance, but she loses points because she's taken on a horrible new (and common for that matter) weakness, Fighting!

Hydreigon, Lapras and Aggron all have a weakness to fighting without having a single pokemon resistant to that.

A few things I'm worying about her for when the game comes out is

1. that hydreigon, I mean realy? Dennis' hacked hydreigon gave me nightmares.

2. Archeops is an extreemly tough pokemon. I've had one sweep several pokemon before in White when I was battling in chargestone cave and I know what it's capable of.

Oh, a new post! I'm so happy to see people stopping around and posting again. I was about to have to bump the group myself.

Welcome! I'm glad to have you aboard.

Spoiler:
Ah yes, her team isn't perfect. She doesn't have something to prevent all weaknesses.

But it's still a pretty well rounded team, in my opinion. Especially for a Dragon-type specialist. I can't wait to fight her on Challenge Mode. Which I'm going to attempt to activate legitimately as soon as possible. I also haven't played the game yet, though I could have. I've had some things come up that have kept Pokemon games out of my budget. But I'm planning on importing the game very soon. Before the game comes out in the United States.

And Hydreigon and Archeops are definitely a pretty awesome combination. Really, I look forward to the challenge. I'm absolutely looking forward to seeing Iris at her best in challenge mode. I'm even going to keep same level Pokemon of mostly the Dragon type, in order to keep it a close but reasonable challenge.


On a side note about the anime, the mention of the Bouffalant episode reminds me of this adorable piece of fanart to share.

Why am I not in this club? I need to get in here, I love Iris!

As my name suggests I love dragons and Dragon Type Pokemon. A girl who wants to become a Dragon Master, who is also wild and tomboyish... she's adorable too! I just love her.

Great character. I love all of Satoshi/Ash's female companions, but Iris is a nice change from the Coordinators we've had in the last two sagas. :3

Hooray! Welcome aboard, you've been added to the list.

I agree, Iris is just wonderful and fantastic. It's also really nice to see someone who isn't a coordinator. Iris is also probably the most "wild" or "tomboyish" character we've had since Misty/Kasumi. It's really refreshing.

Whether it is the anime or games, and I like both. It's hard to describe Iris as anything other than a very epic, or at least very welcome addition. I like how the anime and games are also able to focus on different facets of Iris. The games on how she's tough and nails super-talented. And the anime gets to show you a closer look into the 'heart' of dragons, angle. Seeing lots of cases of her caring for Pokemon, and especially dragons.

And dragon Pokemon are just great. I remember spending lots of time in Pokemon R&B trying to get myself a Dratini. And it was all worth it.

Yay, I haven't had to double post post in the thread yet.

Well, it's that time. It's too bad, but it looks like I need to bump this thread. I don't know how many times I can bump it, but it's been almost a month since this thread has been posted in, so I need to bump it. I hope to get more folks and posting soon.

I don't know what all to update, so I'm going to start with some fanart.


Dragonite is such a tsundere.

I've noticed when looking at other clubs for activities to do, a lot of them have contests and things. But that's something that puts stress on members that are a part of the club. And maybe scares people away more than brings them in. I don't think we have enough and dedicated members to do something like that yet.

Though, if you think it would be a good idea at any time, I can come up with a prize and some kind of thing for us to do. I'm pretty sure we're much too small and it's much too soon, though.

If we ever do though, I've already got some prizes in mind. I've got two Carpe Fulgur Bundle packs in my Steam inventory I can give away for those who don't already own Recettear, Chantelise, and Fortune Summoners. If we have any fanartists, amv-ers, and fan-music artists, we can have a contest someday where the 1st prize winners get a free bundle. I think that's pretty exciting. But we have to get big someday first.

We probably have to get pretty big to do something competitive like that. In fact I'd normally wait until we are a healthy group to announce something like that. But I thought maybe mentioning something like that might actually excite some people about the future and maybe want to get them more active. Let's hope we have a healthy group in the future so we can do things like that. Right now, I'm lucky to have you who joined. Maybe I shouldn't have brought that up. In any case, I hope we become big and healthy in the future. In the meantime, relax and have fun, I hope have lots of fun discussions related to Iris.

I think the best thing for right now is to have good discussions about Iris. I need to answer the question about what my favourite Iris moments are in the anime, but sadly I'm not very good at that. I am going to do it, though. In fact, I'm going to post a lot of screenshots and talk about things.

Look forward to it, and let's please keep this group alive.

That fan art is wonderful Nwakaego! Especially loving how the Dragonite's personality is shown xD

I'll be honest, I really don't know that much about Iris enough to talk about her in depth, but I do love watching her in the anime. The reason I joined this club was mainly due to her anime appearances because she's a lot of fun to watch and you can never guess what she'll do next, so that brings me to a question;

Do you think it was a good idea for Iris to capture the roughneck Dragonite?

This can be talking about her team, her building as a character, her other Pokémon's feelings, or anything you can think of! I personally haven't watched the episode yet so I'm not really in the position to comment, but from what I've heard I think it's an awful idea D: It's great that she managed to 'tame' the huge legendary dragon, but then how it acts around her completely spoils the whole Dragon Master vibe. D: I would've muched prefered for her to have caught either a Dratini or Dragonair and raise it into the powerful Dragonite as opposed to her straight out catching the huge beast, but I guess it's nice to see her with another Dragon type finally.

It's been a long time since I posted. And I totally wasn't saving my post for right before the one month mark again because I found I can't bump a thread more than once.

I think it was a great idea. It might seem a bit strange because she doesn't have one in the games. But the anime and games aren't quite the same, and they both sort of show possibilities in both. For all I know, maybe game Iris has a Dragonite and it's just in her Box 1. Also, Dragonite is still, after all these generations, one of my favourite Dragon Pokemon. And is a Pokemon that really fits Iris because in the anime she's a really big fan of cute. Also, I think it's a really get way to help show her developing into a more powerful trainer on the level she is in the games.

In fact Iris of the anime and Iris of the games are pretty well matched at this point. That is, of course, Iris of the anime is still far weaker in comparison. But Iris of the anime is far closer to Iris of the game as a trainer in many ways more fitting than anime counterparts often exists to their games. Especially for Ash/Satoshi's companions who have never been as strong as Iris. Dragonite is a really interested step in bridging that huge gap. Also, I like how anime Iris, and game Iris, are matched by both having non-Dragon Pokemon.

In the anime, you have Emolga. In the games... game... well....
Speaking of which, I think I'd like to see Iris in the anime catch a Lapras in the future. Or some ice or water/ice type. It'd be cool to see her get over her fear of ice types.

It is true though how I wish Dragonite acted less, I don't know... "roughneck" around Iris. And I probably would have enjoyed seeing her catch a loving Dratini more myself. But it's still not bad, in my opinion.
