There is a brand new template for the brand new roster to be made. Note that you only need one pokemon per trainer from the new pokemon available and also note that there's some extra room to add in tidbits about your pokemon's personality as well as your trainer's. If you have a character on the existing roster and you wish to tweak them to add to the new roster that is perfectly fine, also any characters from the old line up are fair game to include in any of the new events (just ask their respective owners about it before using them)
Finding IdeasWhere do artists find ideas? It's something that creative people are often asked by less-creative people, and there's always a temptation to say things like "everywhere!" or "I send away for them -- they're $50 for a pack of 20." However, that's not really very helpful to someone who is sitting in front of a blank piece of paper or staring at a blank computer screen right now, thinking "what am I going to do now?"Finding Ideas6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The thing is, ideas are like fish in a lake. Sometimes you're hip-deep in a swarm of them, other times you can't find a single one to save your life. Sometimes they're obvious and other times they're camouflaged. And sometimes you fish one out and think "this isn't what I'm looking for at all!" and you throw it back.
Unlike fish, though, you can't fish too many ideas out of the pool. Even when all the obvious or tasty ones seem to be gone, there's always more lurking at the bottom. You just have to g
Questioned by the Hong Kong PoliceSo where was I? Oh yes I was gonna talk about my experiences with the Hong Kong police, so here goes. OK this is the problem, whenever I visit Hong Kong I always have the fear of being questioned by the police, well not exactly fear because I've got nothing to hide, but whenever I am alone walking on the street and a policeman on patrol sees me, they would ALWAYS 100% stop and ask for my ID. For those ain't familiar with how things work in Hong Kong is that if they see a teenager (Especially male) on the street not in their school uniform during school time or with dyed hair or pretty much just 'gangster' or suspicious looking, they have the right to stop you in the middle of nowhere and question you. Now I match every bit of suspicion possible, what they are trying to check is if there's any sort of crime around the area so they can narrow down the suspects, or to check whether you are legal to be in Hong Kong, or whether you've got drugs on you.

SAY HELLO TO YOUR THIRD UNCLE'S WIFE'S MOTHER'S BROTHER'S SON'S STEP SISTER'S CAT'S COUSIN'S FATHER'S OWNER'S DAUGHTER'S SECOND BROTHER: Thats me in the middle (Not really) reading a book with a lot of relatives looking at me with their creepy faces. The thing is that all of those uncles has different unique titles, like 2nd uncle, 3rd uncle, 4th uncle. Then it can get more complicated like 2nd uncle's son, 3rd uncle's daughter. Then it can get even more complicated when you have to remember the title for relatives like your uncle's son's wife's mother's brother! And trust me even a complicated link like that has a unique title in chinese, and I am supposed to remember the title... Oh by the way as a duty from the youngest person in the family

Tales of the missing Car Park TicketThis happened two days ago when I had to go to a shopping mall called Westfield. I was there to receive my copy of Zelda Skyward Sword as well as trading in the frustrating Goldeneye Reloaded for possibly Skyrim.Tales of the missing Car Park Ticket3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story begins as I drove to Westfield, got into the car park, its one of those car parks that requires you to get a ticket and if you are only there for 3 hours or less you wouldn't need to pay anything, then they charge you per hour after etc etc. My mind was still deep in thoughts about my grandfather's death that happened a few days ago so I wasn't really paying attention to what's happening around me. So I got into the shopping mall, got Skyward Sword, got rid of the stupid annoying Goldeneye Reloaded and traded it in for Skyrim. I then walked around the mall a little bit, went into Toys R Us and wandered around like a pedophile, I even went into the girls section for a bit (What? I like Monster High, don't judge me.) I spent around half an hour in the mall pretty much,
A RetrospectiveHello Ryceballs! So I was looking through my god awful gallery the other day and had a nostalgic moment when I saw some of my old artworks, I am happy to say that I have improved over the 5 years stay here on Deviantart (Thank god...). So I just want to show you a few of my earlier artworks and talk a little about the story behind each one of them. I must admit that the early artworks you see on this list is not REALLY the first few artworks I uploaded on Deviantart, but I have since got rid of my even older ones because I really really dislike them, I don't want you guys to vomit blood ok. If you guys REALLY want to see the ones I have deleted.. I guess I can dig into the abyss of my old computer and find it. Anyways here goes!A Retrospective2 years ago in Personal More Like This

This is a picture of me playing the Nintendo Wii, I love my Wii. Had lots of great times on it playing games like Smash Brothers and Mario Kart and Twilight Princess, and a game I really loved called Super Mario Galaxy. The story takes place around 2009? A couple of years after the Wii came out. So one day a friend of mine Matt messaged me telling me he got a Wii, I thought great, about time he got a Wii. So I congratulated him, then he asked the question. :I He asked whether he can borrow some games and I was like 'HMMMMMMMM SHIT'. Well Matt is a nice guy, pretty honest and pretty generous. I usually am pretty generous too but when it comes to games, I hate lending it out

PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans.

I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy! Difficulty level where did you go) but I might still one day go back to it and replay it from the beginning just for fun's sake, but then now what..? Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf

Apologies for 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox SuspensionAs you may know, a few days ago Nintendo suspended 3DS's swapnote/letterbox (Depending on which country your from) system, due to users exchanging offensive material. What Letterbox is? its a software that allows you to write letters or draw doodles or attach pictures and send it to your friends. Its a great little fun software, I always liked Letterbox, I use it a lot to draw funny pictures of pikachu and top hats to friends. And... also for.. umm...... *deep breath 1 2 3* Ok.

Had a dream that I killed someoneHad a very odd and disturbing dream last night, all the dreams interpreters out there please hear me out. I can't exactly remember how the dream started, but thats what a dream is apparently, you don't exactly remember how you got there. Thanks Leo! Anyway it started with an asian friend of mine being tied up and stuffed in a cotton bag, I do not know why it was this friend... I have no hatred towards her and she was a pretty cool person, we haven't really spoken for the past 2 years but, she's very small in size though.. like almost midget size, perfect for being stuffed into a cotton bag maybe thats why it was her. I ain't gonna say who she is incase she reads this and gets freaked out. So yeah I saw my friend in the bag and for some reason I wanted to keep her there, I even went to the trouble of finding more bags to cover her up so she couldn't get out... She was making a lot of noises so I got scared and stuffed her inside my cupboard. I left her in there for a couple of hours andHad a dream that I killed someone3 years ago in Personal More Like This

As an artist, your job is to immerse your viewers into a world that you have built and guide them safely through it. Artists have much in common with storytellers. Storytellers have several tricks that they use to keep their readers coming back for more. Like storytellers, artists can use similar tricks to help them produce more compelling artwork. In this article, we will explain 5 fundamental skills that every artist should master. Let's take a look!
The most important aspect of art to me personally is the composition. It sets the stage for everything else. This is your way to guide and lead the viewer to make them feel as if they are actually in your picture. If this part of the process is not created and controlled properly, everything else can and probably will fal

EB expo Sydney 2012 (WITH PHOTOS)So me and :iconhehalana: and :iconnabari: went to EB expo last Sunday, it was good thing we chose Sunday and not Saturday because not a lot of people were there so we got to try lots of games and get a lot of free stuff the booth people were trying to get rid of. We even got like a whole stack of Mickey Mouse stickers it was amazing. I cosplayed as Kato from the Green Hornet, I couldn't breath properly the whole day cos the mask was squishing my nose.. Alana cosplayed as Aigis from Persona 3, Nabari as Sakura from Street Fighter, three unrelated cosplay. For those who don't know what EB expo is, its pretty much like a miniature version of E3, there was no Miyamoto, there was no Kojima, but we did get Ed Boon and Charle Martinet (The voice of Mario) so it was good enough for me.EB expo Sydney 2012 (WITH PHOTOS)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

- You want to connect, you want to put your own DNA into the picture and connect.
-Vulnerability. Telling someone who you are. Honestly revealing parts of yourself sincerely. The key to animation is sincerity. Step beyond your walls and share as an artist.
- Animation is the ultimate art form. No other art form will challenge you as much as animation can.
- You always want to be restless, I always had one foot out the door at Disney.
- it is important to not hold back and share all you have to your fellow artists. Got to keep giving it out and trust me it'll pour right back in.
- Drawing is about feeling.
- Conveying an emotion of peacefulness is just trying to capture someone living in that moment.

Composition is one of the most important parts to taking any photo (and making any piece of art really) and so I thought I'd share a few basic rules and tips. The word composition simply means 'putting together' and so, with any piece of art, it's how the piece is put together. With a bit of practice while keeping these tips in mind, you can create a more impacting, pleasing to the eye piece of work that will draw the viewer in and keep them interesting.Back to Basics Photography - Composition2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Mae says-GENWUNNERS the whiners of the PKMN fandomHello everyone! With the release of Pokemon X/Y I was inspired to make a post about the most annoying part of the Pokemon fandom; Genwunners. Since the beginning, these guys have been farting their nostalgic gasses ruining the Pokemon experience for all fans. They usually pop up when a new Generation is introduced, however they especially got whiny after Generation 3. In my opinion, Generation 5 had the biggest WAAAAH fest courtsey of the Genwunner's club but Gen 6 is also getting its whiners as well. Therefore I think its more than appropiate to release this post now that the whining is at full blast!Mae says-GENWUNNERS the whiners of the PKMN fandom1 year ago in Personal More Like This
