BLACK -The creepy Pokemon HackBLACK -The creepy Pokemon Hack5 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry
I'm what you could call a collector of bootleg Pokémon games. Pokémon Diamond & Jade, Chaos Black, etc. It's amazing the frequency with which you can find them at pawnshops, Goodwill, flea markets, and such.
They're generally fun; even if they are unplayable (which they often are), the mistranslations and poor quality make them unintentionally humorous.
I've been able to find most of the ones that I've played online, but there's one that I haven't seen any mention of. I bought it at a flea market about five years ago.
Here's a picture of the cartridge, in case anyone recognizes it. Unfortunately, when I moved two years ago, I lost the game, so I can't provide you with screencaps. Sorry.
The game started with the familiar Nidorino and Gengar intro of Red and Blue version. However, the "press start" screen had been altered. Red was there, but the Pokémon did not cycle through. It also said "Black Version" under the Pokémon logo.
Upon selecting "New Game", the game sta
Creepy Pasta:Pokemon BloodboneI'm sure we all know how this story starts. There's always someone, getting a game from Gamestop and I am no different. I had always wanted to own Pokemon Heartgold or Pokemon Soulsilver. I had remembered my days playing Pokemon Crystal version. Sure, I owned Black version and White version. But I didn't care. I wanted Heartgold or Soulsilver. One faithful day, I had dropped by Gamestop to check out the games. I was scavenging through a used game pile, when I found a tattered up copy of SoulSilver. The box was cracked in several places and the paper for the cover was ripped. There was a large stain on the front. I wasn't sure what the stain was.Creepy Pasta:Pokemon Bloodbone4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters
I took the game to the man at the front counter and asked if the game still worked. "Yeah, that game works just as well as any other. But I don't think you'd like it very much. Everyone who buys it returns it the same day with new strange complaints." the man explained to me in response. "Now, I ain't never played it myself, but there must be s
.:.A Pokemon Theory...:. As we all know, Pokémon is a very popular show both among children and young adults to adults who have followed the franchise from the beginning. But have you ever wondered why Ash never truly changes? Sure, his clothes change, but he's always the same, goofy, immature boy that made the show so funny to watch in the beginning. Pikachu joins him in is immobile state both never to see the light of an age line or age spot..:.A Pokemon Theory...:.5 years ago in Short Stories
Ash started off his journey a carefree boy who, despite all his TV-watching, didn't really know much about Pokémon other than you catch them in Pokéballs, sometimes while fishing. He got a rather ill trained Pokémon named Pikachu, and soon after in the same episode, he earned its respect and they became fast-friends. And though Ash and Pikachu have taken many deathblows that would kill a normal person (disregarding the fact that this show isn't real), it seems they both are perfectly

It was just another one of those days. Playing Black, shiny hunting. My target? Yamask. You might still know it as Desumasu. I'd moved on from getting one in White to hopelessly try for a shiny Victini, only to find out Victini was programmed to never be shiny unless you cheat. Now I had returned to Ancient Castle in Black to try once more. I had been roleplaying and doing a collab comic with Shadowtheshekirby here on deviantART--Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Requiem of the Shadow Colossus. In it, my character, Jupiter, was a shiny Yamask, so I wanted a female one to mirror her incarnation in the comic. I was using KAITO, my male Minccino with Cute Charm, to help raise the chances of finding female Pokémon.
Still early in the morning, I was playing and listening to the radio, when finally, I saw that night-sky blue Yamask, sadly male, but still shiny! It was...different, though. He had two little p
A Very Black SoulI'm such a pitiful sight now, aren't I? Look at me...old, alone and full of regret. So much for the world's greatest pokemon trainer. I'm nothing more than a monster. I wish there was some way to go back to days of my youth and take back those words that sealed my fate.A Very Black Soul5 years ago in Short Stories
Hm! You say you don't know me. I can't help but wonder if that's a good thing. You may not know my face, but surely you might have heard my name before? My name is Red. I was once declared the youngest champion in Kanto's history and the only one to hold the title for so long. But that title is a false one. I'm not a champion. I'm nothing more than a senile old man. I said something I shouldn't have. My mother always warned me that I should never make a wish out loud because someone might be listening.
Ah, so you do know who I am! That will surely save time. I'm guessing you've come to find me to ask me how I became the champion and how I managed to hold it. The tale is not a happy one and I am not eager to share it.
Creepy PoKePoEtRy Entry SealedHow did this happen?Creepy PoKePoEtRy Entry Sealed4 years ago in Short Stories
Trapped within this cage of greed
Fear, complete terror
Evil, hate-filled heart
What is happening to me?
I cannot feel love...
Everything turns black
Just what have they done to us?
There's joy no longer...
All these mental wounds
What is that shrieking I hear?
Where is my kindness?
Compassion, it's gone
Where once was empathy, there's
Only this vacuum
Kill now, no mercy
I'm becoming something else
Please, won't you help me?
This curse, Reverse Mode
Flashing and screaming and pain
When will it all end?
My conscience now torn
No emotions to hold back
Nothing, there's nothing
I live just to kill
Serving those who taint my heart
'Til my very end
I once was alive
But now I'm only empty
Just a soulless shell
Pokemon N's Room Theme~ Orig. LyricsPokemon N's Room Theme~ Orig. Lyrics3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics
Inside of my room I stay all day,
Where I know my friends and I will play.
I wonder what it's like,
If I went outside?
What could be out in the ‘world’?
There’s nothing out there but black and white,
The way that I choose I’m sure it’s right.
I will become the king,
And set my friends free.
That’s how it shall all soon be.
Used and then discarded this fragile doll,
Cried out his lonely heart but none heard his call.
Sitting upon this cold throne,
Where he stays alone.
Won't someone comfort this boy?
CP: Pokemon Chimchar's EditionI recall the fun of playing Pokemon Platinum edition. I absolutely adored the storyline. Everything about the game called to me. But then came the day when I caught that Shinx... ever since then, everything changed...CP: Pokemon Chimchar's Edition5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters
It was at least my twentieth time replaying Pokemon Platinum. Everytime I started it with a different Pokemon team. I liked variety. But this time... I was bound and determined to play through the game with a starter for once. I had managed a play through with a Torterra. I had once played through with an Empoleon and a Rotom. But Chimchar and its evolutions always got evaded. This time... I was using Chimchar.
Things had gone well at first. I started the game, picked Chimchar when it asked me my starter; so far so good. I had named my Chimchar Nini. I wasn't sure why. Nini was at level 10 when I first wandering into Route 202. "This time, I'm not gonna let some wild Pokemon distract me from training Chimchar." I reassured myself.
Wandering into the grass, a wild Pokemon
