Pokestory

"Hey trainers!

Just because I’m a Pokemon Professor now doesn’t mean I don’t rely on my own Pokemon partners! A lot of my research wouldn’t have been possible without Musa and Paella. They’re my wonderful friends too, even when I don’t think their assignments through completely ha ha…Maybe I’ll take care of the Mt. Chimney research sites from now on…”

I'm sorry I just seem to be a little confused. I plan on writing a story as a submission so do I send my name, username/website, 3 samples of my previous work, AND the story I plan to submit or do I wait to see if I've been accepted? And my fellow artist will have to follow the same guidelines, is that right?

Sorry for the late response! Currently we will not be accepting text stories, only illustrations or comics. Here are the instructions on the submission post:

"If you are interested in contributing, just send us an e-mail with your name (username, twitter handle, etc.) and website/art blog. We will respond with more information and add your name to an artist directory on the PokeStory tumblr. Then, just send your completed submission to us at pokestory.zine@gmail.com before the deadline, November 1st."

So when we accept you, you can then send in whatever you have for your entry.

I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.

Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patience up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!

I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.

Here in PokeStory we dont usually reblog things outside the many things that happen within our staff, but we want to bring this to your attention as a point of inspiration. This is pretty much one of the cores of what PokeStory is: Pokemon and humans living together without the necessity of battle.

PokeStory was created to illustrate an aspect of Pokemon that most people dont recognize: the companionship of Pokemon, the sense of mystery, discovery and enchantment in a new world. And as time goes by, the characters you meet become more than an NPCs and scripted pieces of data to become companions and inspirations.

We hope you appreciate this fanart for its exceptional message and world view. Hopefully it will inspire many of our readers as well!

Hi! Is the email you gave for submitting artwork the same email ask to sign up for the zine?

Sure is!

"Hello Trainers!

Have I told you about the time I first started my field duties as a Professor? Its hard work to go out there into the dens of wild pokemon to grab some notes and draw their intricate details down to the exact anatomy of them! As you can see, I am not a master artist. One more reason I am so excited to work with such talented trainers from all across the regions!”

Will we get to see some staff contributions in the second issue? You're all such awesome artists

We’ll definitely contribute because if we don’t, the boss man gives us 20 lashings each. But thank you for the compliment!

Hello my dear trainers!
I am very happy today! See, I started getting a whole bunch of emails in my lab from various trainers that are willing to participate and help me in my research! I have sent the staff scurrying to update the contributor list ahead of schedule.
To maintain order, I am gonna be updating this list every WEDNESDAY and SUNDAY depending on the number of trainers that email me each week. Also, I am gonna talk later about what formatting I will need for each submission I get for my research.
For now that’s all! Thanks everyone and I hope to see more of you come forward and share your journey with me!

"Bonjour trainers! My name is Professor Colette Cacao, but everyone just calls me Coco or Professor Coco. My research covers collecting data on the relationships between Pokemon and people. I’ve covered vast amounts of studies and observations, and made some incredible findings! In my studies, Trainers have retold their accounts of Pokemon growing in new ways, pushing their limits in times of need and learning to mega evolve. Some Pokemon have been able to come back from a "shadow" state! So please, if you don’t mind, would you kindly tell me your tales for my project’s research?" - Professor Coco

Hello everybody! Welcome to the beginning of the PokeStory2 weekly comics! These 4koma will be posted every Wednesday giving you fellow trainers a chance to learn more about our Professor Coco and to keep y’all excited til PokeStory2 comes out November 14th. So stay tuned for more adventures with Prof. Coco!

Oh Dear,Hello everybody, and welcome to Pokestory 2!
For those who don’t know, Pokestory is a fan zine that is all about discovery and exploration in the Pokemon world with your fellow Pokemon partners. Pokemon is much more than just battling, and we wanted to create stories that proved it. With these ideas in mind, we called upon artists to contribute works illustrating the adventures trainer could have in the Pokemon world.
Pokestory was a success! We had a lot of participation and we created a pretty awesome zine for everyone to enjoy. But now with the announcement of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, we’re back!! Pokestory 2 is still about discovery and exploration, but this time we’re also celebrating Hoenn.
So, once again, we’re calling on all you artists to be a part of PokeStory! You can learn more about the zine from the sidebars on our blog, or click here. Be sure to check out the first zine too!Sign-ups will be opening soon, so keep your eyes peeled!All right, are you ready? Your very own adventure is about to unfold… I’m getting a little nostalgic. I remember my own adventures in our vast world of Pokemon…Well, go on, your adventure is just beginning!

PS. My staff members will take care of this tumblr while I continue my research…
