"大家好! My name is Professor Colette Cacao, but everyone just calls me Coco or Professor Coco.

These past months, I’ve been collaborating with skilled trainers to put together Pokestory 2, a zine recording their journeys and tribulations in my home region of Hoenn, and we’re looking forward to all of our sure-to-be-lovely contributions. To celebrate the zine and the release of ORAS, we’re holding a giveaway for the games!

  • There will be two winners, one for Omega Ruby and one for Alpha Sapphire. These will be the US/North American editions of the games.
  • Each person can have a total of two entries, one reblog and one like.
  • No giveaway blogs!
  • The giveaway ends November 20th and we will announce the winners on November 21st
  • Anyone can enter the giveaway! Participating Artists, Pokemon Fanatics or even just tumblr users who are interested in this giveaway… everyone is welcome!

Thank you for the support, and good luck!”

"Ciao trainers!

 As our expeditions to the Hoenn region are about to unfold, we are always hearing exciting /news/ and /discoveries/. At this point of preparation for a new adventure, we are hearing new details about our beloved Hoenn region. 

However, although all these new findings are fun and exciting to hear about, there are some we must take with a grain of salt. We have a lots of dedicated folk out there who are good with releasing new information before official word. Like I said, try and take them with a grain of salt, rumors can be rumors after all.”

" Musa is convinced that there will be a Mega Tropius after seeing the arctic representative for Hoenn, Glalie. She’s convinced that her kind will be the Mega representative for Hoenn’s tropics! I think it’s just speculation and rumors though. I’m not comfortable sharing that with others as I’ve learned the hard way what rumors lead to!!"

Is it okay if we send submissions in our email via Google Drive? It would be a link where the submission can be downloaded.

Sure, I don’t see why not!

Hello Trainers!!A year ago, POKEMON X and POKEMON Y where released worldwide. After weeks of speculation, leaks, rumors and the mystery of Mega Evolution, we finally sat down and played this new adventure in the Kalos Region.
At the same time, a small zine with a cast of 39 artists made a small ripple in the Pokemon fandom with a publication that celebrates the franchise away from the traditional focus of Pokemon Battles and instead gave an artistic look to the Exploration and Discovery aspects of the Pokemon World. We celebrate a year since PokeStory’s release.
The staff takes this time to celebrate all the artists that came here and helped make a compilation come true in a never-before-done effort by some Ex-Nuzlocke comic artists who have now forged a friendship for over 4 years. Who knew these goofs would stay here for so long? Thank you and thanks to everyone who participated in the first volume. Thanks to everyone who is already in volume two as well. Thanks to the community… Here is to another year.We cant wait to see how PokeStory 2 shapes up like!-Jamie, Weta, Queenie, Greg, Kaji, Matra, Mychal, David, McJamie and Jaime.You can enjoy the first volume of PokeStory right here!

"Heya Trainers!!

I have noticed that Paella tends to be absent on Wednesday mornings and she usually comes back incredibly tired. Well, while I researched some majestic Slowpokes (They CAN lick their elbows! Wow!) I have finally found the reason of Paella’s absence!! I wonder if this is some kind of labor work for Pokemon who have been in PokeJail? (Of course PokeJail exists, I am a Professor!)”.

"Aloha, trainers!

Brawly’s new gym is really something! Although, I’m not sure why he has so much work-out equipment in his battling room...if his trainers are using everything else, where else am I supposed to exercise during my research trips to Dewford?

And Brawly, if you’re worried about setting the mood for your matches…Please do us all a favor and get rid of those shoes…”

"Howdy trainers!

They don’t call us Pokemon “Professors” for nothing! I’ve done quite a bit of teaching at the Rustboro Trainer School. I’m a firm believer of learning by doing. Sure, I could have just TOLD my students that Fairy is super effective against Fighting, but they gain much more if they learn firsthand which types have an advantage over which types. I’m sure this student won’t ever forget that Fairy types can give Fighting types a thorough beating…

I don’t teach too often anymore because Roxanne thought my methods were…unorthodox…but sometimes she’ll invite me to talk about my research. Orrr just to scare some more knowledge into her students!”

"Bonsoir trainers!
I hope you are all doing well! As for me? Well I’ve been very busy! It seems like you all have been busy too, since the emails from trainers have died down. Here’s a reminder that we’re still accepting people to join PokeStory until October 1st! Anyone who wants to join after the cut off date would sadly have to wait untill the next PokeStory zine. I hate to cut the call for artists off after Oct 1st, but I want to allow all of you wonderful trainers enough time to tell me your stories before the official submission date! Participants will then have until November 1st to hand in their submissions. No late work allowed!
If you are still interested in contributing, send us an e-mail with your name (username, twitter handle, etc.) and website/art blog to pokestory.zine@gmail.com. If you want to learn more about submitting click here, or if you just want to learn more about PokeStory in general, click here! Check out the FAQ and the first Pokestory issue, or shoot us an ask if you have any more questions!”

"Hello my dumplings!                 

After a short discussion with a man in Dewford Town, I’ve decided to create a Twitter account to remain “hip and trendy.” It was either make a Twitter account or participate in “ADULT SLUDGE BOMB,” whatever that means…

If you have a Twitter account, you can follow me @PokestoryZine to keep up with PokeStory updates and get a glimpse into the life of a Pokemon Professor!”

"Bon après-midi vous des formateurs!

Like every good worker, it’s always a great idea to treat yourself to a small reward every now and then for achieving big milestones in your work! Whether you’ve finished a 10 page essay, completed a fantastic art piece, or even just survived a hectic day at work, these small gifts allow ourselves to stay sane and refreshed so we can tackle the next day with higher spirits!

Any type of reward is often a great treat for yourself! Choosing the rewards can be bit a tricky. As long as you relax and rest up for the next intensive event, any reward is a great one! My reward is always treating myself to the best local desserts in the area! Even if they look a lot like my research…. You know, I might need to pick a different type of reward in the future. For now, I’m just going to slowly enjoy the delectable taste of fairy type- ERRR I-I mean, sweet mega dreams Audino cone!  Yeah! That’s what I meant….”

"Hello, trainers!

I may be a professor who focuses on nostalgia, but I’m still pretty young!  I’m on top of all these new fashion trends!  In fact, watching how fashion changes over time is very telling, especially when Hoenn’s very own champion upgrades his look!

My research is about how humans affect Pokemon, but Pokemon affect humans, too!  Steven has such a strong relationship with the Beldum family, you could almost say that he mega-evolved along with it!

Or, maybe Steven is as dense as ever and Wallace just decided to dress him.  I guess we’ll never know!”

Hi! I'm working on my submission and I noticed in the art guidelines, it states that submission cutoff is today, August 31st. But in the FAQ, it says that the submission deadline is November 1st. I'm just a little confused, and wanted to know what the final day I could submit my work is. Thank you

The final deadline for zine submissions is November 1st. We will clean up the FAQ and guidelines to avoid further misunderstandings. Sorry for the confusion!

Friday, August 29, 2014
Can our submissions be about team rocket, magma, or aqua member ocs?

Sure, go for it!
