Radeon

Radeon
Classification: The Radiant Pokémon
Type: Light
Description: Its tail suffuses the space around it in a warm glow. It is said that the light from a Radeon will cast aside evil spirits of the night.
Evolves from Eevee by training with a Light-Type move

Trivia: Radeon is the Light-Type Eeveelution. As Swift is the only Light-Type move that Eevee can learn naturally, it will usually be training with Swift that causes Eevee to evolve into Radeon. Radeon is an extremely loyal Pokémon, that will follow its trainer anywhere. This combined with its ability to create light makes it the perfect partner to have when traveling through dark areas.

It is worth noting that the first seven evolutions of Eevee all had types that were considered special types prior to Generation IV, meaning that attacks of those types dealt special damage, not physical. It is highly likely that if the Fairy-Type were introduced before Gen IV, that it too would be a special type, fitting Sylveon into the same category as the others. Similarly, the Light-Type would likely be a special type too.

Episode 92: It’s Not Rocket Science!

The 92nd episode of Cosmic Quest is out now. Read it here.

Jessie, James, and Meowth are assigned an extremely important mission for Team Rocket, the only catch is they’ve been assigned partners. Partners that they don’t get along with in the slightest.

Also, the Pokédex page has been updated accordingly.

Episode 91 Review

I discussed this a little in my last review, but as I wrote the fight scenes between Brenda and Michelle, I realized that I was making the fighting much more intense than originally planed, and, as a result, was making Michelle seem like much more of an actual selfish jerk than I had originally planned. Because of this, I’m a little afraid the resolution at the end of the episode might have seem a little too forced or contrived for some people. It would have worked just fine the way I originally planned it, but the way it turned out, not as much. I still think it worked fine, but I wouldn’t blame someone for disagreeing. That being said, I considered, as a measure to fix this, holding off until a later to have Brenda and Michelle make up, and let some time pass, but I decided that if I did that, it would almost seem more forced, and the valuable context provided by this episode would be essentially lost by that point.

One other thing I wanted to talk about is the new Pokémon introduced in this episode, Radeon, the Light-Type Eeveelution. I’ve been holding off on revealing this Pokémon for quite some time now. I know that many would release their custom Eevee evolution as soon as possible, but that’s exactly the reason I wanted to wait. In the early stages of Cosmic Quest, I felt that would be too stereotypical to release a new evolution of Eevee, given how common they are when it comes to fan-made Pokémon. Now that I’m most of the way through Cosmic Quest and have more than established myself, I finally decided it was time to reveal this Pokémon. For those who didn’t realize, I actually foreshadowed this Pokémon way back when Michelle’s Eevee was first shown. In addition to emphasizing the fact that Michelle and Eevee seemed to be focusing on the now Light-Type move Swift, Brenda’s Pokédex stated that Eevee had nine evolutions instead of the actual eight. I don’t know if anyone caught this or not, but I didn’t get any reviews, comments, or messages suggesting that anyone did. But seeing how popular Eevee and its evolutions are, I hope that you like mine.

Episode 90 Review

The schism between Michelle and Brenda is something I’ve been building up for since Michelle’s introduction. Brenda and Michelle may have been best friends, but there has always been tension. I wouldn’t go as far as to call Michelle completely self-centered, but she certainly has some minor selfish tendencies. Add to that the jealousy that would be natural to someone in her position, and she was just a ticking time bomb, waiting to go off. On the surface, it looks like Michelle is just being a complete and utter selfish jerk, but I like to think she’s not completely to blame either. She has had to put up with Brenda’s “luck and talent” all her life, and she hasn’t been a part of Brenda’s life for the past year, so she really doesn’t realize how much Brenda has changed. I’m not saying I would condone Michelle’s behavior, but I don’t think it’s quite as messed up as it might seem on the surface.

Tardiguard

Tardiguard
Classification: The Survivalist Pokémon
Typer: Water/Psychic
Description: It is famous for its ability to thrive in nearly any environment. It has been found in freezing cold and boiling hot temperatures, extreme radiation, and even the vacuum of space.
Does not evolve

Trivia: When the environment becomes too tough for even Tardiguard, it will enter an extreme version of hibernation, lowering its vitals to nearly nothing. This allows it to wait out the overly-extreme conditions, and survive even them. Of course, it isn’t that often that Tardiguard is forced to do this. Due to it’s ability to survive in a vacuum, many have been brought into space on space missions, and some even stayed, leaving populations of the Pokémon in Earth orbit, the surface of the Moon, and even near the Sun.

The Dawn of a New Era

Team Rocket Takeover Stamp Slanted

Meowth: The time has now come. The first episode of the new Cosmic Quest is complete and ready to be published.

Jessie: Once this update hits the internet, we control our own destiny, and we will become unstoppable.

James: I could cry, I’m so happy right now. This is truly our crowning achievement.

Meowth: Before we get to that though, we have one other piece of business to attend to. All day we’ve been running a poll to see which of us is the favorite of you, the readers, and the results are in. Can I get a drum roll please?

*drums*

Meowth: Out of eight votes, four went to James, and four went to me, Meowth!

James: *cries* They like me! they really like me!

Meowth: Of course I won, I’m the top cat.

Jessie: … …Wait a second! If you both got four votes, and there was only eight, that means that no one voted for me! What is this!? In what world does no one vote for me!? I am obviously the greatest Team Rocket operative to ever live!

Meowth: Keep telling yourself that.

Jessie: WHAT WAS THAT!?

Meowth: Nothing, nothing at all.

Jessie: That’s what I thought. Whatever, this poll was clearly rigged. Let’s just post that chapter.

James and Meowth: Yeah!

Meowth: Alright, everything’s ready for the upload. Once I press this button, everything changes for the better. Let’s press it slowly and savor the moment.

James: I’m so excited. I can already feel the power washing over me.

Jessie: With this update, we’ll finally get what’s coming to us.

Yuni Oha: That you will, Team Rocket! Dracosmic, use Draco Meteor!

Jessie, James, and Meowth: WHAT!?!?!?!?!? AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Ash: Pikachu, use Volt Tackle!

Jessie, James, and Meowth: Not the Twerp too!

Pikachu: Pika pika pika pika pika pika pika chu!

Jesie, James, and Meowth: NOOOOOOO!!!!!

Yuni Oha: Shall we finish this together?

Ash: Let’s.

Yuni and Ash: Attack now!

Yuni Oha: Dragon Force!

Yuni Oha: Whew, got them out of the way just in the nick of time.

Ash: Yeah, much longer and we wouldn’t have had a chance at stopping them.

Yuni Oha: To all you reading, I am so sorry for what you must have had to endure over the past 24 hours, but it’s all over. Ash managed to break me out from my cage, and now Team Rocket is gone, and hopefully they won’t be returning anytime soon. Now, to get to work on cleaning up my website…
