Hello! I'm Alexis! You can also call me Siphonay.
I'm a 21 years old demi-guy from Rennes, France and I'm the admin of this instance, https://donphan.social! As it is a Pokémon-themed instance, that's what I'm mostly talking about here!
I've been a Pokémon fan since I first ever touched my sister's Pokémon Red cartridge when I was just a kid. I never missed a single game to this day! My favorite Pokémon are Munchlax and Snorlax . My favorite games of the series are Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire!
Other than running this instance and playing Pokémon, I currently work as an IT support technician. I have a more general and personal account over at @Siphonay, where I post more often. Feel free to follow me over there as well!
Have a nice day!
PokéAPI still hasn’t be updated to include Gen 8 Pokémon, I think I’ll have to find another way to enable @potd_bot to be able to roll them
Hey I made a pack that’s ready to import into Mastodon of every single Pokémon icon to date (Pokémon Sword & Shield DLCs) straight for the game, if you want to use it, it’s there:
I don’t own the copyright for that material but I still put work into compiling them and making them into suitable sizes so they don’t look too bad, so it would be nice if you gave me credit for that if you use them
@Siphonay Yeah, in a series that slowly tweaks and improves things, the first gen feels unique in comparison. There's a video, I can't remember the title, on YouTube that argues that gen 1 Pokemon is structured like a traditional JRPG in a lot of subtle ways that gives it more of proper, interesting difficulty curve and emphasizes the utility of each individual Pokemon.
And like people list its numerous glitches as a downside but legit some of my fondest memories with these games are of fucking around with them and breaking the games in various ways
@hi_cial you’re maybe already aware of it but I though you might find interesting that the very first Mewtwo card released in French renamed it to "Deuxmiaou" (even though it’s still Mewtwo in French everywhere else), that might be a neat thing you could look for!
@Siphonay 9 years ago, there were chess like board game that named "Pokémon Battle Chess".
They should release Pokémon in Portuguese imo
