12/30/2021: Foxfire Battle #33 posted in Foxfire Version. Amber Archive added Lime Version.

12/23/2021: Foxfire Battle #32 posted in Foxfire Version. Amber Archive currently has documentation and title pages for 75 of the nominal 110 network versions. The remaining 35 are mostly somewhat tougher nuts to crack, for various reasons, including but not limited to having more dependencies on other sites' or versions' content. There are a few different partial or complete copies of Red Version in those archives.

12/17/2021: Amber Archive updated. CSS color schemes added for all versions (and some versions that never existed). All versions colored. All versions except Pallet Version from the Amber Version Lost page added. Gold Version added to the Amber Archive. I had to reconstruct Gold's Extras page as it was not in the archive files I have. I also added a few more versions after that that I forgot which ones, but Citrus and Brown were two of them.

12/16/2021: Foxfire Battle #31 posted in Foxfire Version. Cerulean Version added to the Amber Archive.

12/9/2021: Foxfire Battle #30 posted in Foxfire Version. Active progress is being made towards the rebooted Amber Version. Expect additional news soon. EDIT: Additional news. Template for version pages has been created. Flame Version has been uploaded, archived, and added. Additional versions to come.

12/8/2021: Excitement! Wave Version has been added to the Amber Version Survivors online archives link page. Wave Version was unique among PokéBattles, and exceptional among fanfiction then and now, for consisting entirely of audio dramas. It was version 109 out of 110 total versions created. Sadly, only one audio battle remains, but it gives voice to the NARRATOR you know and love.

12/6/2021: Big, unexpected, good news. I've been contacted by the webmaster of Crystal Version and received a large archive of network versions, including many I previously considered to be lost. In the near future, I will be uploading these to Amber Version. As things stand, the newly discovered survivors are listed in their own temporary section of Amber Survivors pending their upload and a significant redesign of the Amber pages.
