FAQI never thought that this would ever be necessary, but many people seem to be interested in my sculptures and have asked me many questions. I really appreciate the interest, but answering the same questions over and over gets a little tiring. So in this journal I will make a list of FAQ (frequently asked questions) and try my best to answer them. The list will be updated when people start asking questions that are not on the list already. Anyway, here goes:FAQ in Personal More Like This
1. For your collages, do you make multiple sulptures or is it just one sculpture?
Actually it's always just one single sculpture which is poseable so I change the pose for every photo. Sometimes I have to replace certain parts of the body though, like in the collage of my Kirby sculpture. For the "inhale pose" and the "inflated pose" I made new bodies, detached the arms and feet from the old body and put them on the new ones. In the same way I can change a sculpture's clothing. For example, if I want to make a Fire
Pokeumans Chapter 12Val took us back to the harbor, just several streets away from the car.Pokeumans Chapter 12 in General Fiction More Like This
"Why don't you come with us Val? It'll be like old times," said Reggie.
The human Tangrowth sighed. "I would love to Reggie, but, I've settled in now. I have a girlfriend, and a job. I can't just drop everything and go on an adventure. My PRT days are over man, but, if you ever need anymore support, I'll do anything I can."
Reggie walked over and the two pounded fists and then gave each other a bro hug.
"Take care of the kid, he has a lot of potential," whispered Val, though I was able to hear him thanks to my heightened hearing.
"See ya man, good luck with your life," said Reggie.
With that, we turned around and started walking for the car.
Within thirty minutes, we were back on the road back to Long Island.
"Okay, once we get to a secure area, check the map for the next gem," said Reggie.
I nodded and dug through the backpack, pulling out the gem. It was so weird, when I took the gem out, the energy radiated stro
Pokeumans Chapter 9The world became bright again and I fell about a foot or two from the air and landed on the grass on my back. "Well that was more powerful than when Mike teleports me " I moaned. The five of us had made it. We were in the tall grass a few feet away from a massive building. The sign said "Environmental Testing Facility" but it was a Pokéxtinction base. I just knew it. Nathan flapped his wings and preened himself, Starr sat up and rubbed her head, Cameron yawned for a second and Sakato stood and got into running position. My watch beeped. I pressed the little button on it and a holographic Asula appeared. "Brandon, did your party make it?" I nodded, "Yeah, we made it." Asula nodded, "Good, now use the holographic map to find a way inside the base. Remember, your job is to create a distraction while the B-team finds the Gemstone Files. Do not attempt to call us, for Pokéxtinction can trace the transmission back to us. We will call you in an hour once we are able to temporarPokeumans Chapter 9 in General Fiction More Like This
Pokeumans Chapter 6 Part 2For two weeks, it was the same. I woke up, went to class, and as soon as it was over AB and I went straight to the training grounds while Starr and Mike headed to the survival class after class. It was pretty repetitive. I didn't even watch TV, or use the computer. I had to DVR all of my favorite shows and watch them after curfew.Pokeumans Chapter 6 Part 2 in General Fiction More Like This
"Who stopped recording my World's Dumbest?!" I shouted, agitated. Mike groaned from his bed, "It's your fault; you're recording too many shows." I checked the DVR space to find that Mike was right, there was no space left.
"Oops, sorry guys."
I had a few mock battles with my friends and strangers, ran the track, lifted weights and practiced my moves on the wooden dummies with AB. I think AB and I had busted up over 1,000 by the first week alone. I had to do it train to beat the Elite Four. And AB, who wanted to get stronger I helped him out the best I could.
"AB, try to use Quick Attack again!" I said. He nodded and dashed out to

“I’m ready master…” AB said with a determined look in his eyes.
“This is it…” Dean said with a serious tone.
Darren had opened up the portal again and sent the coordinates to Mt. Temporal. Everyone was staring at the four of us, our Teleport necklaces gleaming slightly.
“Good luck Brandon, I know you can win,” Starr said, giving me a comforting hug, our spikes bubbled up again.
“Thanks Starr, and don’t worry, we’ll be fine. Beat down Palkia extra hard for us!”
The four of us, AB, Cameron, Dean and I all stared at the portal, which was humming quietly. I knew I told everyone I was ready, but to be honest, I had an overwhelming sense of anxiety coursing throughout my body. I wasn’t even this nerve-wracked facing the Elite Four. My palms were sweating, I was trembling and it felt like my heart was about to explode out of my c
Pokeumans Chapter 17 Part 2My head was killing me, but I felt my consciousness slowly returning to me. I opened my eyes and saw the ceiling of the Great Hall. For a moment, I was relieved, until I tried to sit up and found myself strapped to a table. I struggled, but the restraints squeezed tighter, as if they knew I was trying to escape. I tried to use Psychic, or Rock Slide, even Aura Sphere, but my moves weren’t working either. I was trapped.Pokeumans Chapter 17 Part 2 in General Fiction More Like This
"What...no...it can't be..." I groaned.
"Have a good nap my dear boy?" said a voice that sparked a bad recent memory.
“Marienso…” I hissed.
The Mienshao walked over to my table and smiled at me. “I’m very sorry my friend, but I have been loyal to my lord and master Mr. X for years now, while I’ve only known you for a few days.”
“Let me and my friends go or you’ll be sorry!” I hissed, wriggling to escape my binds.
“Marienso! Go and scout the village for anymore free-dwellers. Let me deal with the boy
Pokeumans Chapter 6 Part 1Asula raised one of her "eyebrows." "Brandon, are you sure you want to do this?" I nodded. Asula sighed, "The Elite Four is the hardest challenge here. No one has taken them all down even since the newest member joined." I nodded, "The Green Dragon right?" Asula nodded her head slightly. She looked at one of the clocks on the wall, "Brandon, it's getting late, you should head back. You should sleep on your decision and report back to me tomorrow." I nodded, "Good night Ms. Asula," I said and exited the office. I yawned and continued my way back to my room. I didn't run into any hall monitors, and I made it safely back to my room.Pokeumans Chapter 6 Part 1 in General Fiction More Like This
Mike was stoned (literary) in bed and dead asleep. Starr was in bed reading a book as usual. "What did Asula want to talk to you about?" asked Starr. "Well," I said plainly, "I'm going to challenge the Elite Four." Starr gasped and dropped her book. "But Brandon, the mission is in two and a half weeks, there's just no way you can gain enough experience to
Pokeumans Chapter 7The door closed behind me. "This is it Brandon," I said to myself, "This is your chance to prove yourself. You've trained hard for this day. Now let's rock and roll!" I looked up. I was in a big room with four gold doors numbered 1 to 4. Each had a lock on it. I noticed the bottom of the handle of the key I was holding felt funny. I turned it over to see a big number 1. I remembered Reggie had said the first challenger was easy, but he was an experienced battler. I walked over to the first door and jammed the huge key into the lock and turned the key. The key stuck in the door, and it slowly slid open. I triumphantly stepped through the door to challenge the first of the Elite Four, and gasped when I saw my opponent.Pokeumans Chapter 7 in General Fiction More Like This
It was a Snorlax, a BIG Snorlax. He was on his back on a giant cushion, snoring like a bear. I stifled a small laugh. This was my opponent? I had a major advantage against him, but still they wouldn't have let him in the Elite Four if he was a pushover. Then a thought came
Pokeumans Chapter 10.5Leaving the whole scene, I quickly retreated to my room, where I filled Starr and Mike out on the details. It was all so sudden and shocking. We stayed up most of the night and talked about it before retreating to our beds. The whole night, I was unable to sleep. I was worried truly worried. Mr. X wanted to get rid of the Energy Channelers. That's why when my kidnapping wasn't successful, he sent Mindy to frame me. That's why he sent the loved ones of our friends to the nearest Pokéxtinction base, it was his chance to lure me in and capture me. But if he wanted to get rid of me so badly why didn't he stay and fight during our confrontation? It was all very strange. I tossed and turned in bed for hours, until I got up and started watching TV before passing out sometime at around 4AM.Pokeumans Chapter 10.5 in General Fiction More Like This
I was awoken to Mike gently shaking me. Groggily, I rubbed my eyes (before remembering about my paw spikes) and sat up. Starr was beside the door.

Starr fired an Aura Sphere at me. I quickly deflected it with my Iron Tail, sending it around the corner and into one of the Crobat that were swarming us.
"I got the door open!" yelled Mike.
Quickly, Starr, Cameron, John, Nathan, Sakato, Mike, AB and I bolted through the door and it closed behind us.
"This temple really sucks!" groaned Mike as he reverted back to Ditto form.
"It wasn't as bad as the rampaging Mankey room," replied Cameron.
"Come on guys, stop whining so much! We need to keep training until Kyle and the Elder finish the Teleport gems. We're Pokéumans, we don't complain and we don't cry! So toughen up!" yelled Starr.
We all stared at her in shock.
"Starr's right, whining won't help us stop Mr. X, we need to get stronger if we're going kick some Legendary tail. Let's keep moving," I said.
"Yay! Master!" AB cheered as he clung to my leg.
"Four days we've trained in this temple and the rooms keep changing! How are we supposed to get through when we don't know what's

I was carrying Reggie's body in my arms, and I just kept walking. I wasn't controlling my legs; my body was completely numb. I felt disconnected…like my spirit was watching over myself. As I made it to the boulder, I realized the cruel irony of the situation. The day I arrived, I passed out, and Reggie carried me inside the base. Now it was I who was carrying him back to the base. I pressed my paw on it, and the secret elevator opened. As the elevator went down, I felt nothing. Not sadness, not anger, not guilt, just…nothing.
The doors opened, and small crowds consisting of all of my friends, the Big 4 of the PRT, as well as other Pokéumans I didn’t recognize, I’m guessing were Reggie’s friends, were in the grand hallway, cheering for me. I saw the blue banner, waving above their heads, mocking me.
"Welcome home Brandon and Reggie!"
