fansite dedicated to all things Pokemon and MORE. . .
Where to start, where to start... There's so much stuff
to talk about, so much information. *Goes looking through
the archived material sent to him from NobleStrifeStudio*
Hmmm... Maybe I do know where to start.
A SHORT HISTORY
Anyone who's ever
heard of us knows we have a long history. The whole thing
started when Satoshi began a page called Pikachu's
Pokemon Page. It was the first site dedicated to Pokemon,
waaayyyy before it all began here in the U.S. Satoshi,
much to my surprise was a sixteen year old kid--I mean,
his site was loaded with goodies only a professional
connected with the anime industry could get, so yeah I
I, as the head of
Noble Strife Studio, contacted the guys responsible and
asked them if I could do a few images. A few images
eventually turned into an entire redesign. A redesign
eventually turned into a recreation, and many, many
we're here. At a better place. And yet another, all-new

FROM THE TOP
This was the section that contained major info on site
updates and info about the main editor. The main area in
the center of the page was where recent updates and large
comments about the site were posted for all to see. In
the left and right columns on the side, comments were
normally made about some current events, ads, or just
extra stuff that didn't fit in the main bit.
Here's a place where people could look around and see if
there still was a world out there... A Pokémon world at
least. The news corner included some useful info on
events, but it did include a ton of rumours as well. A
good place to see, but you had to be very careful.
NSBulbasaur ran the area of the site, and did a fine job
to start, but as time passed, her doings eventually led
to the untimely end of PFX.
Every month, Pokémon Forest X had one or two pages with
a special feature topic. The special feature pages were
always slightly unpredictable in my opinion. Sometimes
they dealt with special days like Valentines Day,
sometimes they dealt with a specific Pokémon... Then out
of the blue, NobleStrifeStudio could pull out some
original topic that didn't even deal with Pokémon!
basic page with general info on the game known as Pokémon,
starting with a quick description and a link to a
detailed FAQ page. The starting description was basically
the same as the original writeup made long ago for
Pikachu's Pokémon Page. The "classic"
beginning was a nice touch and a good beginning that lead
to the FAQ.
There's a lot of Pokémon merchandise out there and this
was the place where it was talked about in detail. Every
monthly update, a new set of toys was reported about.
Everything from weird blue Pikachu plushies appearing in
Chicago's Chinatown to tiny figurines fresh from Japan.
Once in a while, a Non-Pokémon toy or two slipped into
Please don't tell me that you thought that it was the end
already... There's still lots more to go!
