The Actual News:
Psssh, oh man, there’s just so much going on here, I don’t even know what’s going on… yet! But I’ll stick with the quickness.
As you know, I’ve been planning to make a fake card set out of the Gold/Silver Space World ’97 ROM that was released a couple years back. And THEN I recently decided to turn it into three sets—instead of one—just so no one single set is TOO large and thus it would be more managable. I then thought I would add some Pokémon from the Gen 1 Beta data from Helix Chamber, no matter how limited it was.
Well, to “complicate” matters somewhat… looks like ANOTHER Space World Beta ROM was discovered and leaked… this time from 1999. I’m still sorting through all this myself, but thanks to long time PA! Nickling, Sylvie, I at least got a sneak peak at some of the new Pokémon in the 1999 ROM. And you can see them too right below!
Obviously some of the classics that existed in the 1997 ROM are still here… like all the new babies… but wait… is that a Sunflora prevo that isn’t Sunkern?! And a middle-evo for Nati and Xatu?! A Koala Pokémon long before Komala??! MY HYPE LEVELS ARE IN ORBIT (passing my sides!)
Seriously though, this is just amazing stuff, and it’ll only just add to the kind of stuff I’ll be adding to the upcoming fake card set. But since the set is no longer limited to the “1997” Space World ROM, I wonder what I should call it? ORRR maybe the sets should be called something like…
- Neo ’97
- Neo ’98
- Neo ’99
Y’know, kinda like how it was Neo Genesis, Neo Discovery, and Neo Revelation? In that case, the years of 1997, 1998 and 1999 will be their set names. Lemme think about that. Anyways, stay tuned for more good times! HUZZAH!!
