Episode 80: Digging Your Own Cave

The newest episode of Cosmic Quest is here!

Braydon has spotted Team Planetary, and knows they’re up to no good, so he enlists the help of Ash, Brock, and Brenda to stop them. But he’s not the only one wanting to enlist their help. Soon they’re dragged into a battle to protect one of the Legendary Cosmic Guardians.

The Cosmic Chronicles Chapter 2: Entanglement

It’s been over a year, but don’t think I’ve forgotten about this series. The second chapter of this exclusive series can be read on this website here.

With Chris still tagging along, Brandon does his best to investigate what this mysterious group of black-uniformed Team Planetary members are, but he’s faced with resistance both from those he asks for help and Team Interplanetary themselves. When his investigation puts him on the trail of Legendary Pokémon, who knows what could happen?

Also, the Pokédex, Attackdex, and Character Guide pages have all been updated accordingly.

Episode 68: Shoot for the Sun and Moon

Sun and Moon Background

That title is no mere coincidence, this is a Pokémon Cosmic Quest Sun and Moon Special! Come on and celebrate the launch of Pokémon’s newest games with with us here.

On their way back to Launch Town, Ash meets up with an old friend from the Alola Region. The group quickly gets caught up in yet another altercation with Team Planetary, but this time they have set their eyes on a target, or rather, targets. To further complicate matters, it would seem that there is some sort of connection between the Tenno and Alola Regions, and Team Planetary wishes to exploit it. What could it possibly be?

Episode 43 Review

This is a rare episode revolving around Team Planetary that has little grounding in my original Luna, Terra, and Sol story concepts. The Solar Peak is a real location in these games, it’s where you catch the cover legendary of Sol Version (I’m not ready to reveal who it is yet) in Luna and Terra Versions. And in Sol Version, there is an event where you meet see some Team Planetary grunts near the Solar Peak, but nothing near this scale occurs.

The idea for having Liza and Tate come back for an episode came to me early in the creation of this series. I decided that I needed to have evolutions for Lunatone and Solrock, as they are some of the more major cosmic Pokémon already created. I instantly realized that there would be no one better to show off said evolutions than Liza and Tate. I actually watched both episodes with Liza and Tate in them before writing this episode so that I could accurately portray them.

Cosmic Chronicles Review/Cosmic Quest: The Movie

In case you haven’t read the Cosmic Chronicles yet (which you should if you haven’t), here’s something you missed:

Cosmic Quest The Movie Poster 2

That’s right, the Cosmic Quest Movie is going to feature a brand new, never before seen Pokémon. Who’s that Pokémon!? You’ll just have wait to find out more. Stay tuned.

On to business. You might have realized that the Cosmic Chronicles is similar to the currently running Mega Evolution Specials. If you thought that, you would be right. An interesting note though, it wasn’t actually the Mega Evolution Special that inspired me to write this. My inspiration came from watching Pokémon Chronicles, specifically the Legend of Thunder. It was a three-part episode that featured Jimmy (based off of the protagonist of Gold and Silver) in a fight to save Raiku. I thought it was a great idea to have a series of special episodes featuring the playable character. I had already known that I wanted to do some sort of exclusive special episode for this website, and decided that that idea would be perfect. I decided it would be better though to model it after the Mega Evolution Special, as I find those episodes to be highly intriguing. The half of the inspiration for the series actually comes from the Delta Episode in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I realized that the Delta Episode (also combined with the “Looker Episode” in X and Y) was the start of a new era in Pokémon. Post-game episodes would probably become a permanent feature in future games. I decided to adapt and created a post-game episode for Luna and Terra. When trying to come up with a plot for the Cosmic Chronicles, I realized that this post-game episode would be perfect, so I merged the two ideas and the Cosmic Chronicles was formed. Of course, I had to take some liberties in the story, as Brandon was supposed to be in the place of Ash throughout the normal story, and this story wasn’t supposed to take place until after Team Planetary was defeated, but I made it work. I expect to write 3-4 more episodes depending on how everything goes for the Cosmic Chronicles. They will be spread out across the remaining run of Cosmic Quest. I hope you’re looking forward to them.

If you haven’t seen them yet, sprites of the Team Interplanetary Grunts and Commander Messier have been added to the Team Planetary page.

Also, my apologies again. I have been really busy the past several days with starting college and unable to write. Hopefully a new episode will be coming soon.

The Cosmic Chronicles

From time to time, the actual show will release special episodes. I’ve decided to adapt that tradition to my series. In order to both make it special, and to give you, the readers of this website, a special treat, I decided to publish it exclusively here. Just go to the page labeled: Exclusive Special Episode: The Cosmic Chronicles. This will be the first of a series of special episodes, similar in style to the Mega Evolution Specials. They follow Brandon, the male protagonist of Luna, Terra, and Sol Versions as he battles against a secret sect of Team Planetary. Make sure to check it out.

Also, the Pokédex, New Mega Evolutions, Team Planetary, and Character Guide pages have been updated accordingly.

Episode 33 Review

To finish the story from Luna, Terra, and Sol Versions, once you meet up with Professor Pine and Braydon, and find that Team Planetary is at the Starstreak Mountains as well, the three of you enter the caves and split up. You are then left alone to find your way through the caves, battling Team Planetary Grunts as you go. As you beat them, you learn a little more about Team Planetary’s goals. Right before you get to the deepest part of the cave, you’ll find and battle with Cosmo, this being the third time you fight him. After yo beat him, you can then move on to the next chamber, where you find Orion and Ryusei. Orion has already captured the Legendary Pokémon, and challenges you to a battle. Even though you beat him, he refuses to give up the Pokémon and escapes. At this point Pine and Brayden find you, but it’s too late. Pine and Brayden discuss what Team Planetary might be planning, and then Pine gives the two of you a coupon for a free bike at the Atmos City Bike Store, allowing you to pass the Cycling Road.

As for the episode, in case it wasn’t obvious, one of the big points of this episode and the previous was to give Cosmo some personality and character. Up until now, Cosmo has only been an opponent for Ash, and a follower of Team Planetary for no apparent reason. Now we learn there’s a little more to him. He actually seems to care for his Pokémon, and he honestly does think he’s doing the right thing by working for Team Planetary.
