Shine Diamond episode 16: The Afterpost

Posted April 28th, 2018 at 2:50 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, Mars and Jupiter's plan goes horribly wrong when they accidentally release an Aerodactyl.

This was one of those episodes that worked very well with a different evil team, and transferred to Team Galactic from Team Rocket very easily. That, and this sounded like something Galactic would likely do.

I also couldn't resist adding in Roark knowing how to use Mega Evolution and Brock using his Swanna Song to evolve Crystal into Rampardos to add in more excitement...

Shine Diamond episode 15b: The Afterpost

Posted April 25th, 2018 at 2:19 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, Ash faces off against Roark, only for Roark's Cranidos Crystal to sweep him!

This episode was heavily rewritten to account for the team reshuffling and in an attempt to speed things up. I also foreshadowed Ash's Heart Song (in Tintri's Disarming Voice--he will get a Mega Evolve-able Pokemon later on, but who this is is a surprise.)

I let Ash borrow Brock's Sandshrew Terra to account for Aipom being cut, and Gaia the Budew replaces Turtwig to account for the...

Shine Diamond episode 15a: The Afterpost

Posted April 21st, 2018 at 12:37 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, Ash makes preparations for facing Roark, unaware Team Galactic is hatching a plot!

This episode is one of the rare times we see what the evil team is doing while Ash and the gang are competing. But this is setup for later in the arc, when Mars' and Jupiter's plot comes to a head.

I felt that this sounded like something Team Galactic would do--so it converted from Team Rocket very nicely. Unlike Team Rocket, Mars and Jupiter don't care who the baddest bad...

Shine Diamond episode 14b: The Afterpost

Posted April 18th, 2018 at 2:26 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, the match between Roark and Paul continues!

The major change here was re-orienting the battle so it is seen from the group's perspective. This is why you don't see what is going on in the battle itself unless one of the group sees it, or it is important you see what Roark or Paul sees.

I did speed up the battle by not having Paul welcome back Surge at the end. Instead, Crystal, Roark's Cranidos faints from exhaustion.

I couldn't resist Ash...

Shine Diamond episode 14a: The Afterpost

Posted April 14th, 2018 at 4:23 PM by EmeraldSky

This week, the group arrives in Oreburgh City, where Ash receives a Budew and watches Paul take on the Gym Leader, Roark!

This episode had a lot of of opportunities for callbacks to Moonlight Silver, and foreshadowing of Sapphire Sky (the RSE remix). Ash refers to his match with Whitney, and reminisces about River, his Marill from Moonlight Silver (whose storyline continues in Sapphire Sky). Brock also hints at the stowaway, and reminiscences about Raquel, his own Geodude.
