This is a tutorial/live example on how to mimic the look of letters, fliers, and stationery (as well as other forms of written media) without using images. For all your epistolary fic needs.

Looks like problems continued to plague Chicago PokeGo Fest, so if you're one of our Chicago players who attended, here's something for you.

For the rest of us, there's an event to celebrate the addition of legendary pokemon to the game (as Raid Bosses) for the next 48 hours!
  • double stardust

  • double candy

  • double XP (use those lucky eggs for quadruple XP!)

  • reduced hatching distance (looks like this only applies to new eggs put into incubators; an egg I already had in an incubator didn't update the distance)

  • reduced buddy distance

  • increased encounters

(Full details)

Get out there & walk!

Uh oh

PokeGo Fest is running into some problems.

I know some of our members are from Chicago. Hopefully, you weren't one of these people! :/

(I feel like these were predictable issues? Oh Niantic.)

Incoming Legendary raids confirmed!

Official announcement here: http://pokemongolive.com/en/post/legendarypokemon

Probably coming worldwide shortly after the Chicago GO fest, as I imagine them unlocking it is pretty much a foregone conclusion. Though it seems like Legendaries will be releasing gradually into the raid pool. I'l also heard scuttlebutt that Legendary raid eggs will have an extra-long lead time, to make it easier to coordinate a large group, though I'm not sure where that info comes from.

Someone over on the Silph reddit also did a pretty nice write-up on which pokemon that you can raise now will be most useful for Gen 1-2 Legendary raids: https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSilphRoad/comments/6ogm5u/last_minute_preparation_for_legendary_raids/



For me, right now I've got one Bite/Crunch Tyranitar and one Rock Throw/Rock Blast Golem, plus the usual complement of Eeveelutions and one each excellent Scizor w/Bug, Houndoom w/Dark and Dragonite w/Dragon, so that's a start at least. Sadly neither of my Omastars have the useful legacy rock moveset, oh well.

Alright, here's what I'm going to do. I'm slowly getting through the most popular canons I've iconned and I'm just putting them into online folders. Then, I'm going to link them here. I'll sticky this post and edit it whenever I get around to it by myself. I wont link to new posts, though! Those will go on as usual.

You are free to request re-uploads of whatever, and I'll do my best to hook you up! A lot of my icons are on my old laptop, which is like... trying to put together a science fair project together, but it's doable. So, just comment here if you'd like something in particular re-uploaded! Also, by default I'm not going to sort these (because fuuuuuck I've made a lot of Fate/, Gundam, Red vs. Blue icons) but I don't mind doing that on request either, especially if you want to avoid spoilers.

Also, Imgur bugs out on me too much to use it, and I looked for an alternative album and couldn't find one that worked with my internet q__q so, you get DropBox files. I'm so sorry about that.

(Some might be Plurk sized because I can't tell when I'm just rapidly selecting them... sorry.)

Here's the goods!

Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - SPOILER WARNING FOR S2
523 icons, mostly Gjallarhorn + stray Eugene/Mikazuki/Lafter. Not including the ones I made from when s1 was still airing.

Voltron: Legendary Defender - SEASON 1
185 icons, mostly Keith or Lance.

I don't know how well this'll go over, but this a tutorial/live example on how to create a "Choose Your Own Adventure" fic. While this has been explained before (see here), this particular tutorial shows you how to use a work skin to hide the next parts from the reader until they click through to get to them.
