Man, I just can't stop working on the ColorDex! Which.... I mean, it's still content for the site, sure, but I gotta work on other stuff too!

Anyways, I recently added the colors used for types in both N64 Stadium games, as well as Pokémon Conquest. And then I added the source image for most entries of each type, giving you an idea of where I sourced the actual color data from.

.A quick example screenshot is below; the images may look a bit small on desktops, but it'll definitely look nice on a mobile which can zoom into them.

I'm hoping this update satiates my colorlust, but we'll see. That said I can't think of much else to add to the list that I feel is important enough... getting the Stadium colors was a real coup for me because it gives me official Gen 1 and 2 type colors. Incidentally, Dragon-type was initially colored green... which might have made some sense back then, but not now, given that indigo is the modern Dragon-type color.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the ColorDex updates... and I guess I do have one final update for it: fixing up the introduction section and explaining what each entry is a bit better. I'll start cracking that now.


Heyo!

Ok so, at the beginning of the year, I had planned to do something sizable on PA!'s 21nd Birthday, which will be on April 10th, 2020. I was gonna release a new design for the site, do a live YouTube video stream, and a few little things.

Unfortunately, the whole COVID-19 Beer Bug situation screwed everyone's situation. It messed you up, it messed me up, it messed up that one guy you saw on the bus... it gone dun messed everyone up. So at this point it shouldn't surprise everyone that everything we had planned is getting postponed, if not outright cancelled.

Well, I'm not gonna cancel it, I'm just gonna... uh... well, PA! is going to have a moving birthday!

See? Moving birthdays happen all the time!

So when will PA!'s 21th Birthday gonna happen now? I'll get back to you, but I'm sure it won't be in like October or something. Maybe it'll be on June 32st!


Man, this Beer Bug thing is messing so many people up, it's crazy. But I'm sure you don't need another reminder of this.

So... I spent my free-time updating the ColorDex! Every Type has been updated with most of the colors I've discovered, which includes Pokémon Colosseum and Ecks-Dee for GameCube, the type block used in Gen 4's Pokédex, and Pokémon Go's type color gradients.

This is basically everything I'm gonna work on for now, cuz I have other site-related stuff I need to take care of... but hopefully this will be enough to kick-start your next Pokémon-related art project. I know it'll be useful for me!

Anyways, enjoy!


Hey ok so this is just a quick update notice, but I've been slowly chipping away at the ColorDex . It's hardly complete, but it should at leaat give you an idea of what I'm planning for it.

So wait, what is the "ColorDex" you're (probably not) asking? Well, it's a collection of colors for each Pokémon elemental type, from across as many Pokémon games as I can pull them from. Some of them I need to get a little creative with, like Gen 1, which involves me taking color averages for all Pokémon of the same type.

The overall goal is to have a resource for Pokémon artists to use if they want to have a pallet of colors to use for their piece of Pokémon artwork. I for one definitely plan on using it for my artwork when it comes time to work on the SpaceWorld GS fake card set!

As a general FYI, but also as a note to self, I'm hoping to get the following color info from these games:

  • Mainline Gen 1-8
  • Pokémon Stadium 1 & 2
  • Pokémon Colosseum
  • Pokémon Home
  • Pokémon Conquest
  • Pokémon Rumble

And there we are! Keep an eye out for more updates on this soon. Good times.


LOL ok so back in the latter days of PA! in 2004, I drew maybe eight pages of the sprawling, eight-page epic known as Pokémon Aaah! The Comic. In the comic I had Profressor Tree send myself (as "Nick15") and my potty-mouthed Gastly on a mission to become a Pokémon master... only to be stuck for 20 years at the same spot as an NPC. It was only when I encountered members of Team Rocket that I finally returned to my journey to become a Pokémon Master.... and that's where the story ended.

Now one of my favorite jokes I used in the comic were the names I gave Team Rocket. Y'know, since members of Team Rocket are named after outlaws and other naughty people from history, like Jesse James, Butch Cassidy, Atilla the Hun, Adolf Hitler, etc etc etc. Well, I thought it would be only fitting to keep this trend going by naming my Team Rocket after Billy the Kid. Not a bad idea, right? In fact, take a look at a drawing I just did of them!

Billie, Kid, and The

Yep, their Dunsparce is named "The". Not anything else, just "The". Ehehehehahahah, I kill myself sometimes.

I'm still working on the coloring... I wanted to get something uploaded to the site before my phone died. Either way, I hope you got a kick out of this. :D

...ok, thats it for this post. Good times.
