I have an idea that explains Eevee many evolutions.
The Eevee line starts off as an Eevee. An Eevee normally evolves gradually, depending on its environment, to a form better adapted to its surroundings. The evolutionary stones trigger the evolution artificially to create Vaporeon, Flareon, and Jolteon, as well as the Icy and Grassy Rocks on certain routes that let Eevee evolve into Glaceon and Leafeon.
Espeon and Umbreon are relatively new forms in comparison. Rather than evolving through environment, they come about though the presence of a trainer. The Eevee eventually evolves into a form that allows it to better protect its friend, with the form being determined by the sun's position in the sky (present or absent).
Not enough to make an entry, but it's a start.
I like the idea that Eevee have inherently adaptable secondary genetics, so exposure to harsh climates and/or different environments, emotional states, and conditions can cause a genetic mutation-suppression protein to be reduced, allowing it to begin growing into a new form with a different Typing.
I agree with all of the above. Sounds like a solid base for explaining the Eeveelutions.
As do I. There is definitely potential there...
And now they got me thinking about that Eclipseon fic I read somewhere...
I also feel like I've seen that explanation before.
In other news, I am still working on the Nidoran entry with several changes, some of them large scale, and I plan to have the next major release by the end of the year. The changes so far include a quick study of their names, checking the mating and birth rates to make sense, and trying to provide better background on the poison. I have yet to try justify the Ground-type adaptation upon royal evolution. And no, no fanart yet. I will be of course glad to receive suggestions as to any of those matters.
And talking about that, if anyone has suggestions for Hoothoot & Noctowl childbearing please let me know, because I haven't been capable to come up with something for them.
I still don't know which entry to do next...
The Sentret article is still rather... bare. Seriously, most of the important details are outright missing!!! Unfortunately, I don't have much of an idea of what to do there, nor do I have the time to fix it myself...
Sentret is up high on the revise list, yeah.
Hmm... I don't know if this would get an article or just be mentioned where relevant, but how effectively are poisons treated with modern medical attention?
Considering how a move that causes grievous neck injuries is not considered to be game-breaking enough to be banned from use in competitive battle, I'd think that the Poke-world's got some fairly advanced tech when it comes to medicine. So, I doubt that treatment of toxins would be an issue beyond whether or not you got a suitable antivenom in time (which given the Antidote's catch-all properties and ubiquity, shouldn't be much of a problem)...

On more recent news, are we going to consider moving the The Pokedex Extended Fanon Edition project page to a different namespace in the wiki as per the new moving plan for Troper Works? (also, the previous two pages in that thread arfe highly relevant)

So, I'm new to this Fanondex stuff and would like to make a page for Berries. I don't have time to read this entire thread, but have read most of the actual articles and have an idea of what to do.
How are you thinking of formatting it? There obviously isn't enough info on the individual berries to make them all separate, but there's also too many to just clump them all together. Perhaps group them by taste(bitter, sweet, sour, etc)?
and maybe a reference to Cherubi could be made.
at any rate, just throw down what you've got and we'll tell you what we think.

I was thinking a brief description of each one (i.e. taste, texture, preparation.), its usage by Pokemon, and some additional notes (Such as common uses, health benefits/hazards, preferred conditions, attached folklore, etc.). As for sorting... Maybe just 1-32 and 33-64, or maybe quarters.
If you like it, I'll start working on it... tomorrow. Just hit 12:00 AM over here, and I'm tired.

Berries? Go ahead. And "additional notes" are what we live for here.
For the project page, do you have a particular idea for which namespace to move it to? Forum Support, perhaps.
Maybe eventually the pages could be moved to a wiki of their own.

So, how should I begin? Type up some stuff in a post and see if it's good? Edit that post to include whatever else I come up with?
sounds good. Rolling Updates are quite acceptable. Post a rough draft or whatever and we'll work from there.

Fair enough in style. I don't have sufficient experience to judge the botany, though.
An introduction entry on berries in general may be a good idea, though.
Though a proper template is in order, how's this?:

Hmm... problem with that is that I have no idea what to put for habitat. Other than that, and the fact that I've had no use for "other" yet, it seems fine.
Should I edit my original posting to add more berries and change stuff?
edited 8th Nov '10 3:17:00 PM by Anomalocaris20
It's best if we can link to one post, yes.
Next 2 added.
I chuckled at the chesto berries roasting on an open fire.
Figured I would slip in references to their real-world inspirations.
