Shine Diamond episode 79a--The Afterpost

Posted August 31st, 2019 at 9:16 AM by EmeraldSky

This week, the gang tours the Old Chateau, famously known as the Chateau Platina, and meet its cheekiest resident!

The big change for this episode is taking Team Rocket out--they (or the admins) have no reason to be there.

I swapped around the Pokemon with Ash and Dawn to account for the starter switch for Ash, and cutting Piloswine/Mamoswine for Dawn.

I decided to build on the Old Chateau's history, and expand on it as a historic landmark. Ash and the...

Shine Diamond episode 78b--The Afterpost

Posted August 28th, 2019 at 10:48 AM by EmeraldSky

This week, the gang travels to Fullmoon Island to awaken Cresselia--but a rescue mission prompts a miracle evolution!

The biggest change in this episode was replacing Swinub's evolution with Satomi evolving into Gardevoir. Like the remixed Blaze, a stubborn streak would be very out of character for the Gardevoir line, so in a sense, I have preserved the same Kanto storyline that was mirrored in Shinou, just in a different format.

I expanded on the group's research in...

Shine Diamond episode 78a--The Afterpost

This week, the group and Danielle arrive in Canalave City, only to be caught up in a mystery!

The start of this arc was heavily rewritten to account for Team Rocket being cut. "Jumping Rocket Ship" didn't work when transferred over from Rocket to Galactic, so it was taken out. I next had to figure out how Ash and the gang could get to Canalave without leaving a big gap. My solution was to make a breather interlude where the group has an uneventful flight there, playing "Chambers...

Shine Diamond episode 77c--The Afterpost

Posted August 19th, 2019 at 10:17 AM by EmeraldSky

This week, both Ash and Mars end up victorious in their respective competitions!

Rather than just show Mars getting her second ribbon, I decided to show just what she did to earn that ribbon--max out the meter with an amazing move.

I switched Tails and Diddy's round in the remainder of the battle as a tribute to how the original Tails came through for me when I played Diamond In a way, Ash's match was very similar to how I pulled through, but I wanted to see how different...

Shine Diamond episode 77b--The Afterpost

This week, Ash's musical battle and Mars' Contest continue.

Mars' ID number for the Contest is actually the USA release date for Platinum. I reworked her summoning Leona into her first appeal (as the Visual and Dance competitions took place offscreen). Unlike the games, coordinators can't jam others with their appeals--instead, they can intimidate coordinators that have already appealed (making their next appeal less effective), or make those that have yet to appeal nervous (meaning...
