I find it particularly easier to write Pokemon fanfiction about the Pokemon themselves rather than writing a world where Pokemon and humans exist together under the same sky
I mean, I want to write a world where pokemon and humans coexist and there’s all sorts of conflict and resolution and tension and emotions
But in order to start doing that, I also want to add in people of color. I mean I want not just exclusively white people but also Hispanics, blacks, Asians and other POCs. In other words I want to put in as much media representation I can.
(To be sure I’m also sick of seeing people create OCs that are white 90% of the time. There’s nothing wrong with white OCs but I just want more POC representated.)
Granted, I’m Asian American so I am a person of color, but I don’t know if I can write from a perspective of other POC as well as I could.
It’s also probably why I like writing about the mystery dungeon world since it has a more universal appeal to me. At the least, I don’t have to worry about skin color of all my characters.
And researching about perspectives of POCs alone is difficult. When I’m trying to translate it to the Pokemon world, I always have seemingly unanswerable questions such as, Did POC ever face serious discrimination in the Pokemon universe? What about their Pokemon? Were they allowed to own their own Pokemon if they were oppressed?
Otherwise, maybe humans in the beginning were so scared against these monsters (every Pokemon is scary one way or another) that they banded together without even caring about their skin color? Like it was all humans of all color vs. Pokemon/aka monsters?

okay this might be the stupidest comic i’ve ever drawn.
So if you reblog this, I will design a character based on your URL+blog.
I can’t promise they’ll all be in the same medium, or that they’ll all be colored, but I’ll do my best.
I’ll post them on my blog with a link to yours, and I’ll PM you a link to the post.
Well this will be interesting.
people who breeze through character customization in just a minute or two scare me because i need at least 3-4 hours to make sure my character looks fresh as hell
