Plenty more like this here!
If it doesn't appear right away, give it a few moments to show up.

I'm sure you all remember way back when Pokèmon Red and Blue were the some of the best games around (they still are) and I'm also sure that if you took the time to complete your Pokèdex that you were expecting a little something better than a lousy congratulations.
That stupid little congratulations fueled this flash. I always wondered what it would have been like if they had made a proper reward for completing your Pokèdex and this is how I figured it should have been.
A few notes: I'm well aware of who the ??? Pokèmon really is, remember that this was supposed to be a reward for completing your Pokèdex in Red / Blue and that it wouldn't have made a lot of sense for them to give out too much info on the next games poster Pokèmon. It is for that same reason that the mishap in the encounter is there, I wasn't being lazy.
I realize that the font I used wasn't the same one from the game. Well I searched for that specific font and was unable to find it nor recreate it so I decided to just let it slide.
I also realize that the battle sequence (the blackout and song that goes with it) is not the one you would normally experience during a wild Pokèmon battle. That's simply a matter of personal preference as I believe that the trainer battle music is infinitely better than the wild Pokèmon one.
I spent a lot of time and effort trying to capture the look and feel of the game so I hope you can appreciate it! I didn't do any hex editing or anything of that nature, this is pure sprite work!
For those of you who enjoy it a lot, I'd appreciate a recommendation for either the Pokèmon or Video Game Parody collection. Thanks!
