Introduction post 

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, 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 :munchlax:​ and Snorlax :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!

A few days ago, a ROM of the unreleased Pokémon Picross for the GBC was found in a Nintendo leak. As a fan of both Pokémon and Picross, naturally I’ve been playing it since a few days!

I gotta say, it’s a neat Picross game, and it features never seen before spritework that’s really charming and with really good use of the GBC’s color capabilities

I never grew out of Pokémon. If that’s a phase that’s a long one

The GSC shiny colors for Ampharos look better than later generations, imo. They look silver with purple gems and tails!

The pink/blue version is... fine (shiny Ampharos say trans rights?), but not as interesting, imo.

This is old but I just stumbled upon it again, so have some screaming magikarp

A tip for filling your pokédex when you have pokémon Home.

You may have noticed that when bringing pokémon from Home to Sword/Shield, the pokédex entry is not automatically filled. But there is a way in the game to get the entry, by leaving the pokémon at the day care and taking it back.

Here's an example with :porygon_z:​.

I think it would be really cool if the future Gen 9 region was based on China

I'm still amazed how I can just build a childhood game from source, and even modify some stuff from it super easily

What I did with this some months ago as an experiment with this was adding a "BEPIS" type in the game, a type that was resisting any other type and itself, but normal, to which it was weak to, and I made Charmander being of this type to test it, and it worked. Was a fun thing to do

github.com/pret/pokered

This is a GitHub repository containing the source code of Pokémon Red and Blue, disassembled and refactored to human-readable (and editable!) asm.

While the code is refactored, its functionality is untouched, and the ROMs you built with this code will be identical to the one that is on US Pokémon Red or Blue cartridge.

It is a really cool and interesting project!

Serebii is a rather complete and accurate source but I wish they would update their antiquated design... What at least decent contrast and fonts that aren't ridiculously small. Also it doesn't seem like they document beta and leaked stuff, which is a shame.

A large subset of people seem to think the leaks are bad and immortal just because they're illegal. Which is really annoying but whatever

"beta leaks are all fake but we have an extensive list of every single named ship in the fandom" - bulbapedia, probably

It's really a shame because a wiki is the ideal format for an information database on a franchise as expansive as Pokémon

Bulbapedia has really went bad over the years :/ first they put all the sidebar in drop down menus at the top which is really annoying, then they added so many ads the site is unusable with an ad blocker, and third they have incomprehensible editorial policies such as considering all the Pokémon beta leaks since 2018 as fake and made-up even though they've been verified to be real
