Gym Reviews: Hoenn

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Greetings again! The name’s Bill, and I’m the current owner of Brick ‘n’ Break. If you didn’t hear of us before then you should have, for we’re the blokes behind all those Gym puzzles! The Gym Leaders come up with the plans, and we make it happen, no matter how impossible or stupid the idea. It’s their money, after all!

I’ve written previously about the Gyms we worked on in Kanto, and again in Johto. Well, I was first in charge when we were giving the Hoenn region a tour. Read on to see what I made of each construction challenge!

The BBS Fandex – Now Live!

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

We’re happy to announce a new branch to the BBS site! It is humbly called The Fandex, and can be visited here. 

What is it?

The Fandex is a collection of fanworks – art, stories and anything else – of Pokemon. It’s all organised by Pokemon species names, so if you want to find all the art for Bulbasaur specifically, you can easily view just those! You will also be able to look at art for human characters (e.g. Gym Leaders). Anyone can view, and by registering to the forums you can upload any art.

Furthermore, the Fandex aims to properly credit the creators of the fanworks. That means that every file uploaded will both name who made it, and link to the source material. This is to help try and give proper credit to people who put time and effort into their creations, who don’t get acknowledge when their work is simply reblogged or worse yet plagiarised. This also allows you to check out more art by someone you’re impressed by.

You can read more about the Fandex and how to contribute here! Ask any questions here or in the forum section we have (open to guests!).
