Phantom Version: Fan Battles
Amber Version: Historical Archives
Network: Community Content & Fansites

These were the first five battles I ever published, albeit not all the first I ever wrote. The bulk of these were establishing characters whom I had plans for in later battles.

It wasn't uncommon for fan versions - and to an extent, Red Version itself - to feature their webmasters in meaningful roles in the story. Hence, Hiber's appearance here, being a creation myth. Hiber won't often take a direct hand in things, but might if there's a big enough plot event.

Battle #1: A New Beginning. May 27, 2021
Location: The Infinite Void
Player: Hiber [No Record]


It's been over twenty-two years since this medium began, near seventeen since the Void swallowed it alive, twelve since the last shot at reviving it.
I shall not make the mistakes of my forebears.
I shall not succumb to ego, nor write for anyone but myself. I shall write solely for my own desires.
And so I shall howl at the Void, and a new world shall be born!
So, Void. I stand before you, and challenge you. I shall create and I shall endure!

HIBER used DRAMATIC SPEECH!
It's not very effective...
VOID wants to fight!
Well, then... Let's go!
VOID sent out APATHY!
VOID sent out DISINTEREST!
VOID sent out DISTRACTION!
Oh, so this is the sort of thing that brought us down in the past. But I will not be so easily tempted. Go, me! I'll howl to the Void, and show them my determination!
HIBER sent out HIBER!
Begone with you, irrelevant things! Hear my howl and roar and get out of my way!
HIBER used OVERLY DRAMATIC ROAR!
It's super effective! ... for now.
DISTRACTION was blown away!
DISINTEREST was blown away!
APATHY was blown away!

And now, I'll show you what this new world will be made of!

Now, to make this world something other than a lifeless ball of rock.
Terraform!

HIBER used TERRAFORM!
TERRA was FORMED!
... Wait. Just to be sure. That is the new world, and not the Final Fantasy character. Yes?
TERRA is neither!
TERRA wants to fight!
TERRA: For the glory of the StarDroids, we shall conquer this Earth!
Oh. It's the Megaman one.
I don't have a living world for you to conquer yet. We need to finish pushing back the Void first.

TERRA: ...
TERRA wants to fight! ... Enemy VOID!
Ally TERRA used SPARK CHASER!
Congratulations! SPARK OF INSPIRATION was caught!
Oh, that works perfectly. I know what to do, now...
Enemy VOID used MEGA DRAIN!
MEGA MAN characters present were DRAINED!
It's super effective!
I know what I have to do.
This is, after all, a battle.
So, to the Void with this Void. I'm ending this now. Fire Spin!

HIBER used FIRE SPIN!
It's not very effective...
Enemy VOID can't move!
Of course you can't move. This is the Generation 1 version. Writhe and struggle all you want, but a battle is a battle, and you've already lost!
Its attack continues!
Its attack continues!
Its attack continues!
Its attack continues!
HIBER used FIRE SPIN!
It's not very effective...
Enemy VOID can't move!
Its attack continues!
Its attack continues!
TERRA: Are you just gonna keep doing that?
Don't doubt me. I can do this all day!
HIBER used FIRE SPIN!
It's not very effective...
Enemy VOID can't move!
Its attack continues!

Location: The Infinite Void, several hours later

Its attack continues!
Its attack continues!
Enemy VOID ran!
See that, nothing can deal with the power of that broken move.
Now, to work, in earnest this time.

HIBER won!
TERRA won!
PLANET won!
What? PLANET is evolving!
Hmm?
Congratulations! Your PLANET evolved into VERSION!
Well, that makes my job a lot easier.

In classic Poké Battles, anything and everything is a potential adversary; trees in particular were both common and vicious. This battle just takes that classic encounter one step further.

Battle #3: The Lumberlost. June 10, 2021

Player: Ax Craig [No Record]


Ah, another gorgeous day out in the woods.
It is raining.
Not ideal for woodcutting, but what can you do?
CLOUD used THUNDER on enemy CLOUD!
It's super loud!
Ah, yes! But not every day can be sunshine and rainbows. There's beauty in the thunderstorm too. As long as lightning doesn't start hitting the ground I'm fine.
WOODS wants to fight!
Well, I'd say that's out of the ordinary, but honestly it's not. That said, I'd have expected just a tree or two.

Go, me!

AXCRAIG sent out AXCRAIG!
Now, to scare this big cat off!
MTLION used LANDSLIDE!
LAND below AXCRAIG's feet started to SLIDE!
Wait, how is that possible again? It's just a mountain lion, isn't it?

Something happened off in the distance!

This battle was one of the earlier ones I wrote and has been intended as battle #5 since it was. The original PokéBattles: Red Version introduced Star Wars characters on its fifth battle. This is also by far the longest and most dramatic battle I have published to date.

Despite the release of Star Wars: Episode I early in PokéBattles' run, I can't remember a single official or fan battle that gave more reference to it than the ubiquitous Jar-Jar bashing. This one draws from it, and from Star Wars: Episode I Racer to an extent. It also draws on running gag crossovers from other versions...

RSACi is dead! There's no will to fight!
HIBER: That's true, the RSACi was closed in 1999 and rolled into ICRA.
ICRA is dead! There's no will to fight!
HIBER: That's also true. ICRA shut its doors permanently in 2010.
HIBER: But frankly, the RSACi Cloud never had that much to do with the actual RSACi or ICRA anyway.
HIBER: So I see no problem with dragging it up from the Amber and resurrecting it. The same way I did with you. The same way I did with this whole concept.
HIBER: More importantly than anything, it keeps a 20-year-old running gag going, and it's still funny.
