    Boy... think about it : what if the two protagonists of a fan-game were based off two actual
    people, whom happened to be players as well as siblings?
    And... what if, in a some sort of weird post-game, the two end up in a double battle against
    the two they're based off? Man, that would be so epic...

    Let's see, uh... the character on your side has their "canon" team, and the two "actual people"
    could have teams made by a mix of pokémon they had in gamelays, were particularly remarkable
    in their experiences or convey some meaning...
    Let's see... there's the misconceptions that the [email protected] are siblings or couples...
    Since latios and latias seem to be multiple in a same continuity, they could be
    siblings, couples, parents, cousins or merely unrelated kin... still, I think these "misconceptions"
    could be a good excuse for the two first members. Two more slots would be taken by the
    first starters the siblings ever had, respectively *redacted* for the brother and *redacted*
    for the sister. Then, the brother's first capture, being a *redacted* and then a *redacted*
    being his *redacted* team's lead. The sister had a *redacted* both in *redacted* and
    *redacted*, which was also main due to a stall move and a draining one. In *redacted*
    however she didn't seem to be interested in evolving the *redacted*.
    I could think up 7 out of the 12 pokémon that will compose the siblings' double-battle
    teams... I gotta think more and better. I'll also need to think up the canon teams for
    the protagonists...

    So... the views right now, whilst typing this, are 2'289...
    Why is that? Do people like the colours I picked for my user page?
    Is it because of all the junk I wrote down on my visitor messages?
    Or... does it have to do with my playful posts on trivia topics?

    Showdown user, click here, then search for the user "Damienasp.fandev" ...
    Enjoy all the themed battles!
    EDIT: Or maybe not... recently there were technical difficulties involving the replays, so all my replays are gone...
    But hey, I've got a bunch of downloaded replays I could use for videograms and a couple replays where I get verbally
    attacked are forever lost! \o/

    It is generally unclear what happens to the game protagonists and rivals after their journeys are apparently over...
    We can, however, make some assumptions and check where they've been last time.
    Note, this list takes into account solely the games.
    Red > Seen in a cave/atop Mt. Silver in GSC, HG&SS, participant of the P.W.T. in B2W2, works in the Battle Tree in S&M.
    Blue or Green(depending on the language) > Leader of the Viridian GYM in GSC, HG&SS, participant of the P.W.T. in B2W2, is referenced to have been in Kalos in X&Y, works in the Battle Tree in S&M.
    Leaf or Blue(depending on the language) > She's presumably Red's counterpart in an alternate timeline.
    Ethan and Lyra > One of the two was last seen challenging Red in GSC, HG&SS, the other probably in Newbark Town
    Kris > Ethan's counterpart in an alternate GSC timeline
    Silver or Gold/Heart or Soul(the name isn't official) > Was last seen at Dragon's den in GSC and at the Battle Frontier in HG&SS
    Brendan and May > In RSE, one of the two was seeking for an Eon pokémon soaring above the skies of Hoenn, the other was last seen in Littleroot Town. In ORAS, one of the two is seen in the Battle Resort
    Wally > In RSE he's last seen at the end of Victory Road(more cave than road), it is unknown whether he became champion or not. In ORAS he's seen in the Battle Resort. He also works in the Battle Tree in S&M, possibly hinting he might have become champion.
    Wes & Rui > They were last seen in the region of Orre. In XD they're referenced, but their status is completely unknown.
    Michael > The most likely hypothesis is that he lives happily with his family in the north-western lush areas of Orre.
    Team Go-Getters > In Mystery Dungeon : Red&Blue Rescue Teams, they undoubtedly reside in their HQ in Pokémon Square, Air Continent, and perform various rescue missions. In Super Mystery Dungeon their status is most likely unknown.
    Lunick & Solana > In the first Ranger (occurring after the events of Emerald) one of the two resides in Ringtown's Ranger Center. It's very likely that the two patrol the minuscule region of Fiore and lend occasional help to pokémon or citizens. During the events of "Shadows of Almia" they might have contributed facing Team Dim Sun's presence in Fiore, however this is unknown. One of the two, being hero/ine of Fiore and top-ranking ranger might as well have been assigned a mission somewhere else in the world.
    Lucas/Dawn > In DPPt, one was most likely last seen in the Sinnoh Battle Frontier (which is stated to be outside the region, if I'm not mistaken). The other was last seen in Sandgem Town.
    Barry > Last seen in the Battle Frontier
    Team PokéPals > In Mystery Dungeon : Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky they reside in Treasure town, and most likely go on rescue, scavenging, escort missions as well as chasing down outlaws and doing archaeological searches.
    Kellyn/Kate> His/her family lives in Chicole Village, Almia region. One could assume they're on patrol duty in Almia, however, as a Top Ranger, he/she might have been assigned a mission somewhere else in the world.
    Keith> After the Ranger School he was assigned to Fiore, but was asked to report to the Union's HQ in Almia for his Top Ranger promotion. It is unknown whether he's back to Fiore, still in Almia or, due to the rank, elsewhere in the world.
    Rhytmi> She's obviously in the Ranger Union's HQ in Almia, working as assistant in contact with Kellyn/Kate and Keith.
    Hilbert/Hilda> He/She might have gone pursuiting N after the events of B&W. In B2&W2 he/she is stated to have been missing since a while.

    What if a fan-game's champion was based off an actual player?
    I think a rearranged medley of sorts representing the player's experiences through the franchise
    would work nicely. Let's take two different players I know...
    They'd both have in their transitions the first notes from the season 1 episodes' opening,
    the same also heard in the red, green & blue intros, but taken from the anime ost. After that,
    the medleys would go like this respectively :
    bells a la weather trio, but sounding like a small tower bell, giving a familiar feel > orchestral arrangement of the Hoenn E4 soundtracks, complete with clapping > orchestral arrangement of the Hoenn champion theme (that will end abruptly to leave room for...) > the azure flute > attack from dialga's and palkia's theme, played with a concert-tail piano. Initially played slowly, but growing in speed getting in par with the OST and then surpassing it > orchestral arrangement of the Sinnoh gymleader/E4 theme without the transition attack(might as well rip it from the anime) > orchestral Sinnoh champion theme > tense orchestral arrangement of the Boss1 soundtrack from RMXP

    rock/metal arrangement of the beast trio OST attack> rock/metal arrangement of the Johto champion/Red's theme > bells a la weather trio, but sounding like a small tower bell, giving a familiar feel > rock/metal arrangement of the Hoenn E4 soundtracks, replace the clapping with something else perhaps > rock/metal arrangement of the Hoenn champion theme (that will end abruptly to leave room for...) > the azure flute > attack from dialga's and palkia's theme, but perhaps not played with a piano. Initially played slowly, but growing in speed getting in par with the OST and then surpassing it > rock/metal arrangement of the Sinnoh gymleader/E4 theme without the transition attack(might as well rip it from the anime) > rock/metal Sinnoh champion theme > rock/metal arrangement of the Pokémon GO gym battle OST > rock/metal arrangement of the GO raid battle OST > rock/metal arrangement of the GO raid capture

    Fandevs could use experiences with side-games : not only they offer inspiration for
    aesthetics and story, but they have quite a few nice soundtracks that many players are
    unfamiliar with and their use would also warm the hearts of the very few who know
    where the soundtrack comes from. This is the soundtrack used in Lyra forest and
    the west road
    in the first Pokémon ranger, and despite this serene music is used for
    a forest it does, sound pretty much like a soundtrack you'd use on a route, not to mention
    that almost every route feels a bit "forestry"... and the part right after 0:24 inspires a
    sense of immensity to me...
    Let's take an even less known side-game, pokémon pinball RS. The field selection soundtrack
    is clearly based off route 101 from the RSE titles, and would make a nice choice.
    Back to the Ranger titles, in Shadows of Almia there's three different route themes that vary not
    depending on the location, but rather on the game's progress. The first one plays early in-game,
    whilst starting the ranger career
    , then there's one playing mid-game and its arrangement,
    playing late in-game after you get an important message from the Ranger Union
    . Given the fact
    these three themes are used on almost every part of Almia, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to use them
    on one route or two...
    Not to mention that side-games and anime both contain a wide variety of soundtracks that could
    be used in certain events, be it comical, dramatic, intense, epic...
    The problem about implementing soundtracks from various sources however is the following :
    soundtracks from the anime are made with actual physical intruments : violins, trumpets, trombones,
    Kalosian horns(Hoenn confirmed), pianos, keyboards, flutes, guitars, various percussions...
    The soundtracks from recent games get quite close to that, but the soundtracks from more
    dated titles have... the soundfonts that could work on those consoles. Don't get me wrong,
    the soundtracks sound still nice, but the gap of quality does, bother me indeed. This might
    be the reason why many fan-devs resort to midis : it's not about the clipping(mp3 files don't
    seem to have the clipping while looping), but rather it's about the quality of soundtracks from
    different games! The alternative would be resorting to making re-arrangements, but that would
    bring on the crediting issue if someone else makes them, and if one wishes to make a
    re-arrangement on their own, they need to learn how to make use of the programs...
    Midis would thus be the best choice to go for, but let's be honest : midis... don't really sound THAT appealing...

    A few possible route OSTs:

    Some cave OSTs

    Soundtracks that could be used for routes preferrably if edited or re-arranged

    Someone in a picture claimed the gen1 sprites had more personality than the latest ones.
    Whereas I'm not too sure about that, it is true that the 3d models are somewhat static and not too
    expressive(whilst idling, that is). For a fangame, my idea was to give each 'mon a more interesting
    appearance through different postures that could also be subtle references to appearances in anime,
    manga, games and artworks. However, I'm not an advanced spriter, thus the idea would be to "paint"
    the pokémon instead, and make the battle UI reminiscent of a painting.
    The legendaries would get a special treatment in regard : they'd most likely get an
    "artist's version" representation as well as some sort of symbol or special effect in the
    background. With this sort of thing, I also came to think about the "Hall of Fame"...
    Since the pokémon are painted, the best thing would be having them displayed in picture
    frames! Problem is : some types may have too many possibilities, whereas some others
    don't have any...
    This is what I could think thus far about the frames :
    Grass: Most likely a wooden frame, possibly shaped after vegetation. One likely possibility is ACANTHUS, representing the contemplation of the arts (and servine) , however the possibilities are truly several. Ivy represent strong friendship, and could represent the bond between the grass-type poké-fellow and the trainer. Then, there's also laurel representing triumph,peace, success, renown and glory(aka there's too much win). The background would most likely have a field or a forest
    Water: I was thinking about a mahogany frame shaped after the waves and perhaps a scalchop somewhere(mahogany was often used in the making of ships). I was also thinking about a mosaic frame but I have no clue how to make that work. The background could be seawaves crashing against a rock(where the pokémon is placed), a flowing river or maybe a river dropping into the sea.
    Fire: Obviously a frame shaped after flames, but made with which material? The background could be... maybe a volcano, volcanic phenomenon or maybe a cooking/blacksmith's oven...
    Rock: Obviously, a mosaic or some architecture elements would do the trick. If going for architecture, the layout would consist in two columns on the sides, a ledge on the bottom and a fronton atop(could be empty, have geometric decorations or something in relief). The background would likely be a rock, representing safety and protection/refuge in heraldry.
    Dark: Maybe some dark-toned gothic or baroc architecture would do? The background could be the moon illuminating a certain spot(a hill, rock or other place) or a starry night.
    Dragon: Gothic architecture(or something inspired to a middle-age page decoration). As for the background... I can't think much, maybe a lawn and cloud-covered sky? Maybe a bunch of crystals like in some dragonair cards?
    Ground: Maybe a majolica frame? The background would easily be ground and sky, with the pokémon linking the two.
    Steel: Tough one... the frame could be minimalistic contemporary junk, but I don't want that... maybe I could inspire it to armour decorations? As for the background... maybe I should keep the blacksmith oven for this one (after all, skarmory and aron shed feathers and armor, which apparently were and are still used by metal workers)
    Normal: Uh... maybe the frame could be almond-shaped, or shaped after Arceus' ring... the background... uh... normal,normal, maybe a pedestal, or a dais, with banners in the back?(would be unfitting with porygon 'tho)
    Electric type: No clue about the frame... the background could be a stormy landscape.
    Fighting: Nope! No clue.
    Bug: Nothing
    Flying: No clue about the frame. The background could be the blue sky or a building's top.
    Psychic: I'm prone to think the frame would be golden : gold represents in heraldry generosity and elevation of the mind. The background could be abstract geometric shapes, tie-dye colouring, a labyrinth pattern background, a library or the pattern seen on the arcane doors in Shadows on Almia.
    Ghost: The frame... The background could be some cypresses and yews(in heraldry the cypress and the yew represent eternal life), the sun at dawn/dusk, or a stump(in heraldry representing new life sprouting from the old). Rosemary and zinnia could also fit somehow, since they both can represent remembrance.
    Fairy: I'm clueless here...
    Poison: Bet you cannot think anything here either xP

    I should go figure out what happened to the Altru Petroleum Inc. in Shadows of Almia ...
    A service station with the Altru logo would be a nice reference in a fan-game...
    The only fuel pumps I recall are the ones from an old service station seen in the Indigo
    League episode "The Punchy Pokémon" and the Outskirt Stand in Colosseum and XD.
    Typing about the Gamecube games, in Pyrite town there's several barrels with the
    yellow "WF" letters printed on them... I wonder what those letters stand for? Maybe an
    oil refining enterprise? That might also be an easter egg, subtle but nice nevertherless.

    Man, I'd love if each starter in a game had their own backstory, with certain
    peculiarities, their own movesets, traits, sidequests that relate to them.
    They could also have natures, characteristics and moves that work as references...
    For example, in the rescue and exploration Mystery Dungeon games the players
    would have to undergo a personality test, and they'd be assigned a pokémon depending
    on the resulting nature, which would make a subtle reference.
    The moves could reference instead pokémon from events. For example, the various egg-hatched
    mons with moves they can't quite learn( ancientpower bulbasaur, submission totodile, zap cannon
    squirtle) or the riolu from the Ranger sidegames ( aura sphere and shadow claw, the boy also has
    serious nature, an other subtle reference)

    What if fan-games had their own special-event giveaways?
    These giveaways could occur during festivities, in occasion of an ongoing official event,
    in memory of a past event, or to commemorate something special to the very fan-dev...
    My very first catch(with assistance from my sister) was a shiny poochyena on sapphire,
    and if I were to make a fangame I could release this as a little gift for the users.
    The same could be done with teams from previous gameplays, pokémon coming
    from sidegames (a partner from a mystery dungeon game) or, way more complex,
    pokémon with symbolisms of sorts that represent meaningful things such as relatives,
    special someones, occasions of the fan-dev's life...

    I had a little idea...
    With the various kinds of main screens made for Essentials by LukaSj,
    what if the main screen changed to a specific variant on the day of a certain game's release?
    Problem with this : some games were released the same date >.<
