The Writer's Dex



Welcome! This project is to try to make as many entries as possible for as many Pokémon as we can!

Every week, a new Pokémon line will be introduced for you to create a piece of creative writing about. It can be a drabble, it can be a poem, it could even be a fully fleshed out twenty-chapter epic about the adventures of Dunsparce. Once you've written it up, post it in the main section and link to it in this thread, and it'll be collected in the first post. If anyone has an interesting in checking out stories on Eevee, or Charizard, or even Sunkern, your entry will be right there to be read! Maybe emblems would be given out for frequent participators as well.

You can also submit entries for other Pokémon already on the list, even if currently a different species is being focused on. In the case of a Pokémon having an evolution/pre-evolution, all Pokémon in the line will be focused on, but try to spread the focus. For example, if the Salamence line is up, and Bagon and Salamence have 5 entries but none for Shelgon, give that loveable shell some attention. Consider it a challenge! On that notes, entries involving multiple stages of a line is fine.


Reviews of entries are also encouraged. If you review two other entries, you can also poke me (bobandbill) and get a review for your own story! I'll do this for every two entries you review, provided I have time for it (at the moment this is very likely).



Current Pokémon: Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard!

Taking a gamble on this because I honestly don't know what to write; but I really want to be involved.

In ancient sands the sons of Ra
Crawl out unto the morning sky
The sun can make immortals fall
But not these kings of times gone by

With thunderous power they did rise
In mecca deserts time stood still
The sons of Ra did lightning strike
Awoken had the brother's will

Children of the God of Sun
Duel with lightning in the sand
The sun had changed when they were born
When Ra reached forth to bless this land


How's that? Is this acceptable?

Don't worry Strawberry, it's perfect! :D

Now here's a little tale I wanted to try using an unconventional method. So many poems are worded using rhyming schemes of two or four, but what about a rhyming scheme of three? I wanted to give it a try, and here it is! Enjoy!

The Selfish Helioptile
Spoiler:

There once was a Helioptile,
That was ever so vile.
Being nice just wasn’t his style.

He took what he wanted,
“All this stuff”, he flaunted,
“I took totally undaunted!”

All the pokemon that he had angered,
Came together and gathered.
For Helioptile, who would soon be battered.


Helioptile turned and fled,
Away from his home and bed.
He didn’t even have time to pack some bread.

Helioptile ran for days on end,
Then, stopped on a river bend.
The situation he now did comprehend.

He thought about all that he had done,
And now from his home, he was shun.
His heart filled up and weighed a ton.

He looked up at the sky,
And for a moment, began to cry.
To make things up, he would try.

So, he decided to go back,
To get his life back on track.
Walking back without a hint of slack.

He came back to his desert home,
Looking for all the pokemon, he did roam.
The area, he did comb.

All the pokemon were eventually found,
But Helioptile's arms and legs were soon bound.
They didn’t listen to Helioptile’s sound.

It seemed they didn’t forget,
All the items Helioptile kept.
And his life, was now in debt.

So they threw him into a pit of lava.

Now the lesson here to be learned,
Is make sure all your stuff you've earned,
Or you might get burned.

It didn't turn out quite as I wanted, but oh well. I just wanted to give it a try. Listening to Bobandbill, I also posted this in a thread that can be found here!

Although posting entries here is also fine, I think it's better to post it in the main forum - that way more people see it, and also it would be better to keep reviews of any entries to their respective threads rather than in this thread. Just link to the thread you make for your entry here, is all. =)

(also they look good)

So, I want to know what we can do from this point forward if we've already submitted an entry? Should we continue to write more, or wait for you to choose another Pokemon?

Just curious. :)

Up to you. Multiple entries are fine (if not encouraged ;p), but if you want you can wait for a new Pokémon. On that note, any objections to a new one being selected in a couple days?

Oh, and one can also discuss the prompt Pokemon (say in terms of ideas or writing about them), and review other entries too.

Alright, I'll pick one tomorrow then via RNG (or well, today, as it's just after midnight; but too tired). =p

Went and made drabbles for both btw. You can read them here!

And the focus is now on... Shroomish and Breloom!

A reminder that you can still make entries for previous Pokémon. That can even include stuff you've written beforehand.

Here's my entry for Shroomish. Will do one for Breloom later too. Not selecting a new Pokémon yet, because we need more entries for the current pair first. :<

My Breloom entry for this. I wrote this with inspiration from both the Rocky movies, and the song 'Eye of the Tiger' respectively. I hope it is good enough, 'cause I was happy with it.

I don't own X or Y, so I had no idea what Heliolisk or Helioptile were like. I knew they were electric type lizards, but past that, they were completely foreign to me. So that's why I didn't make any attempts with the past pair.

Oh, excellent! I've added that to the first post as well. =)

And fair enough there. Here's hoping that the next line is also known to you. =p

Made one for Breloom too.

I guess that's it. Note you can still submit entries for that line, but we better move on. Maybe the likes of... Scyther and Scizor will inspire more entries?

I made a short entry for both Scyther and Scizor. Not sure how you'd want to incorporate it into the first post, but it's here (The Evolution of a Scyther).

EDIT: I suppose it could go under Scyther since that's in the title.

Sorry for the lack of updates.

Cheers for submitting! If the entry involves both (or more) Pokémon in the line (or even Pokémon from other species) then the entry will be fine, as long as there's some substantial usage or feature of said Pokémon.


I've also pumped out another set of drabbles for Scyther/Scizor, so let's just conclude that. Again, you are free to submit entries for previous Pokémon. But now the focus is on Mienfoo and Mienshao!

Minibump to announce that in part thanks to inspiration and minor pep talk from an e-friend, I'll be giving a try to realize a Mienfoo-related plot bunny into a ficlet and submitting it to this. It might take the next week, depending on schedule. (Was to be this week, but work became a hell since the 4/01 earthquake)

Good to see you again, solovino! Good luck in getting your entries in soon.

I'll update the first post soon with them, but got my pair of drabbles for the two Pokémon done here. http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?p=8196248#8196248

They're not modern, they're not the focus, but they're here: some fiction about Shroomish and Breloom. I apparently can't post links yet because I don't have fifteen or more posts, so this is going to look suspiciously like spam, but just trust me! They're in the main fiction forum under the name "Dex and Giblets."

A reminder that you can always submit for previous Pokémon already featured.

But let's keep things moving. The current Pokémon are the original fire starters: Charmander, Charmeleon and Charizard!

Whops left this lying around for longer than I wanted. Oh well, guess I can bump for this announcement.

After some discussion I'm sad to say (but at the same time agree with it too) that we've decided to drop this project.

While there's been an evident amount of interest for this dex, there has been a a lack of people doing more than actually expressing said interest and actually writing something. No one Pokémon has brought more than three entries (and that's over an extended period of time), and if the likes of the Charmander lines brings exactly zero entries, then this project doesn't look like it'll improve either.

Feel free to suggest alternatives or the such, but yeah, this is being dropped.

Oh good I didn't want to break the rules to revive this... er, except it's being dropped.

While I'm personally a little sad, I can agree that it might just be a hassle to upkeep. It was a cool idea, and I feel maybe it did help to bring activity to this forum at first.

If I think of a good alternative, I'll let ya know. But the idea is pretty specific, so no guarantees.

Wishing luck to the other writers who had ideas for this, whoever they were.
