Shine Diamond episode 75a--The Afterpost

Posted July 31st, 2019 at 2:24 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, the group watches Cynthia's and Aaron's match, only to find that Paul is at the Pokemon Center too!

I expanded upon the watching of the match to create a quiet moment with the group. Brock and Tarina making popcorn for Dawn and her team was new for the story.

This was one of those episodes that didn't need an evil team intrusion, so Team Rocket (and the admins) were cut out.

Ash's team is complete at this stage, so he just has the team trade...

Shine Diamond episode 74b--The Afterpost

Posted July 29th, 2019 at 12:19 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, an unexpected ally returns when the admins try to crash a relaxing afternoon!

This was one of those episodes that translated very nicely from Team Rocket to Team Galactic. I was originally going to keep the battle in, but decided it would be funnier to just have Brock shot the admins down, and then they bicker for the rest of the time. (Ash does acknowledge Team Rocket because of how the admins try to capture Tintri, Kori, and Aaron's team.)

I moved Aaron's...

Shine Diamond episode 74a--The Afterpost

Posted July 24th, 2019 at 2:19 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, the gang befriends the Bug type Elite Four member, Aaron!

This episode only needed a few minor changes. I toned down the group's excitement and Brock's gaga moment with Officer Jenny because I wanted to show that the group can be respectful, and control their excitement.

Aaron's Pokemon do have names--I just chose to reveal their names next time.

Brock acknowledges Misty for her proper appearance down the road.

I also acknowledge...

Shine Diamond episode 73b--The Afterpost

Posted July 22nd, 2019 at 10:10 AM by EmeraldSky

This week, the gang learns the secret of the Celestic Ruins, only to lose spectacularly to Galactic (offscreen)

Since there were no details on the battle in the ruins, I chose to have it happen offscreen.

I also worked in a slightly tweaked version of the scene in the ruins from Platinum--Cynthia is not apologetic about sharing her theory, and happily answers questions. She also echos the previous two movies, and foreshadows movie 12 down the road.

When...

Shine Diamond 73b delayed

Posted July 20th, 2019 at 6:25 AM by EmeraldSky

The next episode of Shine Diamond is delayed so I have time to plan out the clash between the group and Galactic.

The synopsis of the real episode says the group clashes with Mars, but gives no other information on how this happens, what moves are used by who, or how the clash plays out (it is important that the group loses here, however)

My solution is to expand on the Celestic Ruins, and begin setting up Cyrus even though the group does not see him. Cynthia does tell...
