Network: Community Content & Fansites

In the olden days, there were many Poké Battles fansites. Now, to my knowledge, only mine remains active. Many of them went down when Geocities did, and, as of this writing, only a handful remain live on the web. Others survived by means of the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine (https://archive.org/web/). Amber Version, as it is, is a comprehensive listing to the best of my ability of both those that survive on the net, and those that have been frozen in amber on the Internet Archive, and thereby keep at least this small part of internet history as intact as possible. Amber Version is a museum, a memory, a snapshot of what was in the past, in the early days of the Pokémon fandom.

The Pokébattles Network itself, as it last was before can be found here. This was my starting-point for seeking out lost Network websites and is of historical interest.

The Survivors

Of the 110+ network sites to have ever existed, I've found only 37 that still have some meaningful trace in the Wayback Machine and/or other internet archives. All of those I've found, I've documented in this section of the site.

The Lost

All other Versions have been lost. While they may or may not exist in the Internet Archive, or in the cases of those hosted off Geocities, even on the live web, the links to them are gone, and I personally have no way of retrieving them. Only their names, any references in the survivors, and my faded memories remain. To the best of my knowledge, these are all here.

PokéBattles Timeline

This timeline, as of yet incomplete, is planned to summarize and document as much as possible about PokéBattles' story, in Red Version and all the surviving and referenced fan versions, in chronological order.

MIDI Archive

The old PokéBattles versions often included MIDI music of dubious origin. I've archived and documented all the MIDI music that all the versions I could find used, and reconstructed what I couldn't find. That can be found here.
