Welcome to PokéBattles: Foxfire Version. PokéBattles 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. For more information, go to pokebattles.com, the official site. This site is an unofficial revival, and I want it to live and 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. Updates on the state of the network come on Saturday. New Amber Archive versions will come on Saturdays as available. Other updates will come as feasible.

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