Pokémon Cosmic Quest the Movie 2: Nemex Unleashed

Movie 2 Poster Version 2

It’s been a very long time coming, but the second Cosmic Quest movie is finally here! Read it here. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one.

An evil known as Nemex has continuously wiped out life on Earth in an endless cycle of destruction, and the time for it to assert its influence has come once again. An unsuspecting Ash has a great destiny thrust upon him when he learns he must join the Legendary Pokémon of Sun, Heliosol, in combat to stop Nemex, but all Ash wants to do is save Pikachu. Includes the Pikachu Short, Detective Pikachu and the Case of the Coin Caper!

Ultra Sun and Moon

The past two days of Ultra Sun and Moon trailers have made me realize that I haven’t done anything yet to celebrate these upcoming games. Combine that with my recent reveal/focus on Sol Version, and it only seemed right to bring these two expanded versions together in one place. So without any further ado, I present to you the newest piece of bonus content, the Ultra Sun and Moon/Sol Version background.

Heliosol Ascended Form

Heliosol-A

Classification: The Solar Pokémon
Type: Dragon/Light
Description: It was given the task of constructing the cornerstone of the Solar System, the Sun, by the Cosmic Architect. When it absorbs ample cosmic energy, it will ascend to a higher form.
Does Not Evolve

In Pokémon Sol Version, Team Planetary takes their plans to the next level. Instead of simply taking control of the legendary Pokémon Heliosol, they use a special machine to force Heliosol to absorb as much cosmic energy as they can force into it. This energy is what they have gathered from Meteoric Shards, the Cosmic Guardians, and Terratlas and Seluna, so it is the energy of the Cosmic Architect. This energy causes Heliosol to ascend into a new, more divine, form. In this form, Heliosol has access to a facsimile of the power the Cosmic Architect possesses. Also in this form, its Fire-Type changes into a Dragon-Type, and most of its Fire-Type moves transform into equivalent Dragon-Type moves. However, Heliosol cannot maintain this form for long, and it will soon transform back into its Regular Form. After recharging its cosmic energy reserves, it will ascend once more.

This form changing is controlled by Heliosol’s new ability, Ascension Cycle. At the end of every turn in battle, Ascension Cycle will transform Heliosol into the form it isn’t. So Regular Form will transform into Ascended Form, and Ascended Form will transform into Regular Form. When it changes form, certain moves it knows will also change mid-battle, meaning that Heliosol could potentially have access to eight different moves in one battle. See the in-depth page for more details on what moves will change. Whatever form Heliosol is in when the battle ends is the form it will begin the next battle in.

A Heliosol captured in Sol Version will have the ability Ascension Cycle replacing Pressure, which would have been its second ability in Luna and Terra Version, and therefore it cannot have Pressure as an ability if captured in Sol. One captured in Luna or Terra Version and traded over to Sol Version will maintain Pressure as its second ability. As Ascension Cycle is not an ability in Luna and Terra Versions, a Heliosol with Ascension Cycle will have it replaced by Pressure in Luna and Terra, but it will return if traded back to Sol Version.

Also, Heliosol Ascended Form’s signature move, Artificial Genesis, and ability, Ascension Cycle, have been added to the Attackdex and Abilitydex page, and the artwork of it can be viewed on the Gallery page.

Revealing: Pokémon Cosmic Quest the Movie 2: Nemex Unleashed

Movie 2 Poster Version 2

The next Cosmic Quest movie has its title, it’s called Nemex Unleashed. This is the final version of the movie’s poster. It would seem that new cover Pokémon of Sol Version has taken Heliosol’s spot on the poster. And what’s the deal with the menacing Pokémon in the background? Could it be the titular Nemex? Nemex Unleashed will be coming soon. Stay tuned.

And if you haven’t seen the anniversary post about Sol Version yet, be sure to scroll down a little and check it out.

Cosmic Quest’s 3rd Anniversary and Sol Version

Two years ago today, on Cosmic Quest’s 1st Anniversary, I made Luna and Terra Versions that much closer to a reality by releasing their cover art. For the longest time now I have talked about Sol Version, the “third version” of my “generation,” but until now I have done little to make it exist. That ends now, on Cosmic Quest’s 3rd Anniversary. I proudly present the cover art of Pokémon Sol Version.

Sol Version

There are three things to note from this artwork. Perhaps most obvious is that no longer are my games confined to the 3DS, they have switched over to the Nintendo Switch. But Sol Version isn’t the only game moving to the Switch. Luna and Terra have also both been officially moved as well. Look to the bottom of this post for their new cover art.

The second thing you might notice is that the cover Pokémon bears a striking resemblance to Heliosol, and yet that’s not quite what it is. What could this Pokémon be? Is it perhaps some sort of alternate form of Heliosol? Only time will tell.

Finally, you may notice that the logo on this cover is not the same Sol Version Logo I’ve been displaying. That is because I have redesigned all three of my games’ logos, making them much more unique, complex, and pretty. Take note that Luna and Terra also have new logos.

In addition to this cover art, the site has gotten some upgrades to go with the “release” of Sol Version. A new page has been added to detail the Battle Final Frontier, Tenno’s version of the Battle Frontier. Also, the Tenno Region and New Features/Mechanics pages have been updated with Sol Version information, including a description of the return of the Pokémon World Tournament. Finally, as a special bonus, I have created yet another new page. This one is a gallery page, which features all of the various piece of art that I make for this website, but have nothing else to do with, and nowhere else to put them after they serve their purpose. Check it out.

As promised, here are the new Luna and Terra Version covers. If you wish to compare them to the original 3DS versions, those images can now be found in the Gallery page.

Thank you all for a great three years! And here’s to hoping the future will be even better!

The Pokémon Cosmic Quest Theme Song

Recently I received a private message on FanFiction.Net from the reader MajorBrony95, and in it, they sent me an idea for a theme song for Cosmic Quest, just like one that would play at the beginning of real episodes. They even wrote the accompanying animation sequence. I am happy to share this work with everyone, and am making it the official theme song of Cosmic Quest.

(Launch voice) “3…” (Ash is in a bright lit stadium. We are given a close up of his face as he gives a confident smirk)
“2…” (Ash enlarges a Pokéball and holds it up to his face, determination written all over.)
“1…” (We pan out and Ash throws the ball at the screen with all his might.)
“Blastoff!” (The ball opens up with a bright light at the screen.)
(Crowd voice) “Pokémon!”
(Male singer (think singer from “Advanced Battle”)) “Launching off into new frontier.”
(All scenes are fast-forwarded) (A rocket ship is launching off a pad and lifting off into the blue sky. A downward pan-around shows Ash is running after it on the ground, staring up at it with an amazed smile on his face. Pikachu is at his feet, also with a big smile.)
“I’m not afraid knowing that you’re here.”
(Ash then looks to his right and sees Brenda running alongside him. He looks to his left and sees Brock also by his side. Both have large smiles on their faces. A change to the front shows all of them facing the front. As Ash’s face gets close the scene changes.)
“Reach for the stars, planets, Moon and Sun.”
(We now see a beautiful outer space background with stars and galaxies. Heliosol rises up from the bottom left of the screen as, in a quick switch, Seluna rises from the right bottom. They then blast a Solar and Lunar Beam attack respectively at each other, resulting in an explosion and a cloud of dust. Ryusei and Gravisaac then shoot out of the cloud.)
“It’s my goal to be…” (Crowd voice) “Number One!”
(Ash points out a command to Pikachu, who leaps into the air and, on “Number One,” performs Hallowed Lightning in an impressive display.)
“Through foes and rivals, we’ll pass our test.”
(In front of a black hole background, Sirius, Cygnus, and Orion stand with evil grins with Cosmo in front of them with a impassive, yet nasty look at the camera. Then it shows a glaring Ryu ordering Dragonair to use Dragon Rush at the screen.)
“To be the very best!”
(Jesse, James, Meowth, and Wobbuffet are shot into the air, silently shouting in a blast off.)
“All to complete our cosmic quest!”
(Ash and company are looking up at the sky and a pan-around shows us going out into an above shot of the Earth, displaying the Cosmic Quest logo above it, as a shooting star speeds toward the screen.)
(Crowd voice) “Pokémon!”
(Cue title after flash from shooting star.)

MajorBrony95 was even kind enough to write an extended version, which would play during movies.

3…2…1… Blast off!
(Short instrumental)
Verse 1:
Launching off into new frontier.
I’m not afraid knowing that you’re here.
Reach for the stars, planets, Moon and Sun.
It’s my goal to be NUMBER ONE!
Refrain:
Straight toward our target like meteorite.
With your help, I’ll win the ultimate fight.
I don’t need to wish on a shooting star.
With my friends by my side my WISH’LL GO FAR!
Through foes and rivals, we’ll pass our test, to be the very best.
All to complete our cosmic quest!
Verse 2:
Faster than Neptune’s winds or Mercury.
And stronger than Jupiter is what I’ll be.
I’ll shine like Venus in the night time sky.
And I’ll win that big battle if I JUST TRY!
(Repeat refrain)
Verse 3:
Though others may try,
To bring down our dreams.
Together,
We’ll show them,
We’re so much more than we seem!
(Repeat refrain at a slight higher pitch)
Pokémon!

Thanks to MajorBrony95 for helping Cosmic Quest become that much more realistic.
