Hello fediverse!

Today, donhpan.social celebrates it’s opening’s two-year anniversary!


Thanks for everyone who used the instance and all of our fediverse friends for these last two years, off to a few more!

Trying out my new light box and watering down my acrylic ink for a water color effect. Used Phanpy as a test subject. Still the best elephant Pokemon!

I updated my League Card in Pokémon Shield.
Code: 0000 0004 W0YL BL

Today I finished my pokédex in Shield. I had to wait for a blizzard in the right areas of the Wild Lands to get a Mawile in Sword and transfer it (since I was playing with my brother to transfer it, we also completed his pokédex in the process).

Hello fediverse!

As you know, donphan.social has every single Pokémon emoji (currently only up to Gen 7, but that’s gonna change in the future)

I actually had to write a script to process all of the sprites, and get images that would look nice and crisp (not blurry because they’re resized) as custom emojis.

That required some work on my part, and I’ve noticed many instances copied some or all of them. Even if they’re not my intellectual property, I would appreciate some recognition for the work I put into bringing them in the fedi.

If you’re an admin of an instance that uses them (check in your custom emojis if the ones you are using are using an identical image file as donphan.social), can you please attribute me and donphan.social somewhere on your instance for them? Thank you very much!

Pokémon Shield 

I played a few hours pokémon Sword, and mostly spent my time catching pokémon, my first box is already full.

Something I like in the games is the large amount of small details present. They created an alphabet, with font variants, for all the text seen of signs, posters, screens. Look at the fences on the first town and road, there are little sign on them.

There are several cloth brands, each one with its own logotype. I find the cloth choice better than in Alola (also the :arcanine:​ t-shirt in the first shop looks very cool).
