Welcome to Poké Battles: Foxfire Version. Poké Battles are a unique form of parodic Pokémon fanfiction from the early days of the Pokémon fandom and in the style of the games' narration, defined by the presence of a player who speaks, and a NARRATOR who describes (and, often, distorts) everything else, one line at a time. To learn more, go to pokebattles.com, the official site. This site is an unofficial revival, for my own desires, and I want it to grow.

"Foxfire" is a name for ghostly lights at night. Sparks of light and flame from decay of the past. Ghosts, spirits, things that lead travelers astray. A memory of what has been in the past, and new life stemming from death. This website is both a memorial to Poké Battles as they were, and a revivification of the format that I hope will last longer than it did before. Also, Ninetales.

New battles will come on Thursday. Other updates will come whenever I feel like it, but frequently.

You can contact me, Hiber, at pokebattles.foxfire@gmail.com. The site also has a Discord here.

That's gotta be illegal.
Corruption Charges, use Charge!

Oh, shoot. If only I had a fast-talking gumshoe on my side I might be able to dig some of that up...
Enemy GERRYMANDER used PACK!
Enemy GERRYMANDER stuffed CORCHARGES into SUITCASE!

What part of 'do not fold, bend, spindle or mutilate' do you not understand?
What? Enemy GERRYMANDER is evolving!

FILLET was fully BUSTED!
Enemy GERRYMELEON is bored!

Attaboy!
