This blog contains Pokemon wallpapers that I have made. I will try to post one per day, starting today. I’m going to offer each one in 3 different aspect ratios: 16:10 (1920×1200), 16:9 (
1600×900 1920×1080), and 4:3 (1600×1200).
I’m not making them or posting them in any order, which Pokemon of the day will be on a whim (my whim that is). Besides, it’s more fun this way, you’ll have to check back daily to see which is it. Or, you can subscribe to the blog to get email updates.
However, I don’t mind requests, so if there’s a Pokemon you’d like to see being made into a wallpaper, let me know.
The Pokemon Trainer
I admit, I got into Pokemon waaaayyyyy late. I didn’t have any gaming consoles when I was a kid, and didn’t become a gamer until much later in life.
To show you how late I got into Pokemon, the first Pokemon game I actually played was FireRed, when I was 21 (when I actually got a DS). I have probably seen the Pokemon anime on TV before that, but I just dismissed it as a children’s show.
After FireRed, I played HeartGold a few months after it came out. I think I starting playing that because a lot of my friends were also playing. And so I became a Pokezombie, spending over 300 hours on HG. I played Platinum after that, mostly ’cause items were easier to get than in HG, especially the move tutor. As much as I love doing Battle Tower, move tutor was too expensive in HG. I also started playing Emerald, but I’ve yet to finish it, probably because I don’t really like Gen III Pokemon, or May, but also probably because I got spoiled by HeartGold’s sleeker controls that older versions felt clumsy.
My favourite game is still HeartGold/SoulSilver. I love Kanto and Johto, and its Pokemon. But I also love HG/SS for its interface and game controls. For example, no more need to hold down B to run! The bag is better organized, and all the items are on the DS touch screen, which makes it easier to find things. Also, the Pokemon box (even though it’s still only 18 boxes) is much easier to use now that it’s on the touch screen
Another reason I love HG/SS is because your Pokemon (the first one in your party) walk behind you. It makes them feel more real (and yes, playing this game made me really wish that Pokemon were real and that I could have them as pets), like they’re you’re partners. I love talking to them and seeing their reactions. And I’m sad and disappointed that this feature is not in Black/White.
Lastly, there’s the Pokewalkers. I carry mine with me everywhere, and it makes me feel better about having to walk somewhere instead of driving or taking the bus, haha. I know a lot of people who also have them, so it’s fun to connect with them, and being able to battle their teams in the Trainer’s House.
I have a cosplay of Candice, the gym leader from Snowpoint City of DPP, as part of the Gym Leader squad group cosplay that me and my friends are doing.. I have also raised her teams (Platinum team and rebattle team), which have the correct genders, abilities, and movesets. I hope to have other Pokemon trainers challenge me to a battle when I’m in cosplay.
