I am so confuse

Salvo the Slime’s Castle is basically finished! I just need to go through and take screenshots, and get the post all together!

In the meantime, Minecraft introduced Banners. Since I’m making castles and forts and such, I figured I should include them. Here was my banner of choice for Burt’s fort;

Just blue and white vertical stripes to match his pants. I got a bit more creative for Salvo, but you’ll have to wait and see. ;3

I would also thing a banner turned vertically in a picture frame would be a good way to do the arrow signs, but I haven’t figured out the design yet. If anybody can puzzle that out for me, I would really appreciate it!

James: I was weak. That’s why I needed you… Needed someone to punish me for my sins…

dats the guy from homecoming, rite?

But I already knew about asexuality. :Y

Been getting more hours at work, finally, but I’m making sure to take some time to keep working on this project.

This room third room in Salvo’s castle was pretty bonkers. Much more actively tall than other rooms so far, and less linear. Really interesting to make, though.

In retrospect, though, I probably should’ve done the lighting too, before taking this screenshot, so that you weren’t stuck with nightvision particles blocking part of the view.

Unnatural Pokémon

You forgot Ditto, who is a failed attempt at cloning Mew.
Also…
Klink is a little more complicated.
Klink spontaneously came into existence “about 100 years ago” which roughly corresponds with the industrial revolution, since Pokemon is set in a parallel present. It’s also said in the anime that Trubbish spontaneously comes to life in garbage pits.
Okay so … the way a lot of media franchises work is that they have sort of a series bible that explains the finer points of everything, and it’s boring to just dump the series bible right out in the dialog so they’ll allude to a singular concept from different angles so that those concepts give you a glimpse of the whole idea.
Pokemon has been doing that for a while, and finally drove it home in Gen 5.
There’s this concept in Pokemon that Pokemon spontaneously come into existence as a result of the existence of another thing. This concept is never explained clearly and outright, but it’s hinted to at several points. The origin story of Voltorb and Klink are good examples, but so are Pokemon like Mr Mime and Vanillite.
Pokemon come into existence to reflect memes from the collective human consciousness. Real birds exist and humans understand that so new Pokemon come into existence that are based on real birds. You may also conclude that the animals that most Pokemon are “based” on could’ve been driven to extinction by their Pokemon counterparts, which is in no way supported in the games or comics or anime, but would be a reasonable conclusion.
Okay but wait there’s more!
Legendary Pokemon only exist because their legend exists. It’s like a chicken/egg problem. The lore of a legendary Pokemon makes it real. Arceus only created the universe because the people of Sinnoh believed it to be true, and it retroactively became true.
There’s this optional story thing in Heart Gold / Soul Silver where Cynthia talks about the connection between Johto’s Unown and Sinnoh’s Arcues legends, and how the two might be related. We then see a swarm of Unown bringing a new Arcues into existence - one totally different from the Arceus featured in the previous game.
Remember in the anime movie when Unown had the power to make dreams a reality? Pokemon exist as a result of human dreams and language and Unown are the manifestation of that concept.
That’s how Pokemon work.

My entire life makes sense.

Jaw: dropped.

"You forgot Ditto, who is a failed attempt at cloning Mew."I think they were going by things that are true, not completely made-up bullshit that isn’t true at all. |:U
But that also inherits a mistake; Spiritomb isn’t necessarily dead human souls, but rather just 108 “spirits.” Neither necessarily dead nor human spirits. Doesn’t mean its not either.
I also think you may have Unown backwards.The idea here seems to be that Unown are derived from human writing (since they look like the English alphabet), but I think the idea may be the reverse of that; ancient humans in the Pokemon world saw Unown and derived an alphabet from it.
Sigilyph is no more linked to humans than any other given Pokemon. They were indigenous to a region, and the humans that lived their raised them as guardians. It may also be that the Sigilyph alive “today” are not the very same Sigilpyh from ancient times, and the route around lost cities they fly is inherited out of tradition.
Lastly Rotom is essentially like a poltergeist. It has the ability to possess human objects, but doesn’t likely originate from human-made origins the way Pokemon like Porygon or Castform do.

Just a quick check-in for the second castle. I AM working on it!

Couple sample pics of the first two rooms.
