I don't think I missed much in the Sudowoodo entry did I? I know, the show showed some differences but a little er, re-envisioning is what this thread's about ain't it?

Sep 23rd 2010 at 5:55:09 AM

It could use some editing to follow the same template as the other Pokedex entries, see the OP. (for that matter, the linked template should be updated to have the the first section fixed) Otherwise, I like it.

I'm drunk again, might as well give the foreword a shot.

Nobody steal my idea! (Just tell me if it's done already).

Would a forum title called 'Ben's Radio Station' and I posted videos of Pokemon music, would people be interested?

In hindsight, it is not in the least surprising to me that a pair of ten-year-olds would become two of the most famous and skilled Pokemon trainers to ever live. Training Pokemon is not a suitable hobby for most people- study, work, social life, and other necessities and hobbies tend to take up most of the daily life of people today. The vast majority of Pokemon trainers regularly train one or two Pokemon, usually on weekends and in the afternoons and evenings they can spare. To train a Pokemon to their full potential requires the trainer's full attention and utter dedication.

My grandson was obsessed with Pokemon from a very young age. As an infant, his parents were certain that his first words were imitating their pet Pokemon, and as soon as he could talk he was constantly asking me questions about Pokemon, what were their names, how they lived, what moves they could learn. As a young man now, and my regular assistant, he is still asking questions, and I still answer them to the best of my ability- and on the rare occasion I don't have an answer, I encourage him to find out himself.

The other young man from Pallet Town is the only person I have seen who can rival my grandson in his obsession with Pokemon, and I have to say, the rivalry the two have has probably been to their great benefit. Everything my grandson did, he sought to do better, up to the point of challenging the Pokemon League. It is almost a pity that my grandson has chosen to settle down and assist me, while also taking up the duty of the Viridian Gym Leader (certainly a better choice than a criminal, no matter how prominent)- I can only imagine what lengths he and the other young man would drive themselves to in further competition. On second thought, maybe that is for the best.

Both of those boys had the advantages of a great obsession with Pokemon, and, in no small part thanks to myself, the freedom to indulge that obsession and dedication until they found their own ways to become self-sufficient with it. Both them and I understand that the vast majority of human beings are not so lucky, and do not have the time or inclination to devote as much of their lives to Pokemon. A lucky few are able to find a purpose for their hobby and lifestyle, and become Gym Leaders, Elite Four members and Champions, but again these are the very few and very exceptional.

In my many years of studying, training and taking care of Pokemon, I have seen many trainers with many different ways of looking after their partners. Some treat them with loving care, to the point of spoiling them with treats and attention. Others are unwilling or unable to give them the proper care, and end up neglecting or abandoning their Pokemon. Others still abuse them, using them for profit or personal gain. One of the main reasons I have sponsored this public Pokedex project is to make sure that all trainers can understand what their Pokemon are like, what they want and what they need, so that the new generation of Trainers are able to treat their Pokemon with the love, care and respect they deserve.

On a related note, check this out. This guy's doing amazing renditions of the original 151. Maybe we could convince him to let us use some of his drawings...

Right now I have in my main team a Torterra, Staraptor, Gastrodon, Metagross, Luxray, and a Garchomp. I wonder how much you'd need to take care of all these Pokemon properly.

Well, there are entries for all those Pokemon save Gastrodon and Metagross, so I suppose you could look them up.

I would think you'd need regular access to a specialized spa of some sort—so yes, it probably would cost a ridiculous amount of money to properly care for all these fully-evolved, presumably high-leveled Pokemon.

^x4 Eh it depends, if you keep 'em in their Poke Balls all the time it probably wouldn't cost that much. But if you actually want to raise them in a remotely intimate and psychologically healthy method, it probably won't be cheap...

Depends on the Pokemon and where you live. Some Pokemon seem to be relatively self-sustaining, but others would most probably require huge amounts of food every day, and an environment they are comfortable in. The area might matter as well- raising Water Pokemon will be much easier if you live by the seaside than if you live in a desert, obviously.

wild mass guessAsh/Red and Gary/Blue (I deliberately kept it vague in the foreword) can capture and train far more Pokemon than most people because they have access to the PC system and Oak's ranch to look after their spares.wild mass guess

It probably also explains why most Trainers only have a handful of Pokemon, which are obviously connected to their lifestyle and/or location. It's probably only really dedicated trainers who actually assemble a full team with a wider variety of types, it's easier for most people to just capture the Pokemon that will thrive in their area.
