Why aren't you working on the senjoh region? You should use the senjoh region regularly and the omnis in spare time
Hey! Hi! I’ve been fucking over this before. Jesus christ I do not need someone to tell me how to spend my time. Yes, I know that senjoh is on hiatus and nothing is happening. To tell you the truth, I don’t really have much motivation for senjoh. And for omnis, I don’t have reliable comminucation on the most recent omnis discussions. They use facebook and I don’t have one.
Reminder that I have school. I have homework and finals. I also have commissions to do on flight rising and I would rather spend time doing that. It’s also important to note that I’m not going to run the region by myself. Yes, I’m running the Alker region by myself, but that’s different because I know everything about it. The creator of senjoh is on hiatus, and I don’t want to do things ahead of them without them knowing. Stop telling me how to manage my time.
You’re definitely the same anon from before. Stop messaging me about this shit.
It has been well documented in recent years that coral reefs are sensitive ecosystems that are threatened by any changes to their environment. Accordingly, the results of an ongoing ecological study in China come as no real surprise. The study undertaken by the Australian Research Council Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology has discovered what was once an area of vast coral reefs has now shrunk by a worrying 80% in 30 years- with most of the damage within the last 10-15 years. The reefs that once stretched across roughly 31,000 square kilometres in the South China Sea have largely died off.
The reduction in biodiversity comes at the price of a massive economic boom in China in the last decade. The effects of pollution, overfishing and inefficient coastal management are blamed for the reefs degradation.
China is currently the economic powerhouse of the world, but along with this title it also takes on the role of being one of the biggest polluters. A balance between economics and environment needs to be reached imminently to try and prevent complete coral reef collapse.

Basis: Fire, fruit bat, partial butler/servant theme
Funnily enough, Blazerise’s name came before I decided to make it a butler type of pokemon. It is a complete coincidence that Blazerise has the word “blazer” in it(which it appears to be wearing one). I think design-wise, Blazerise is my personal favorite, which is unusual, because I usually favor grass or water types. Such elegance and grace! My favorite part of the design is the lil’ mustache and curly hair. I’m especially proud of the fire effects! The butler/ servant theme plays into the circle of the starters.
Description: The professor of the Alker region, Professor Olive is an eccentric and quirky individual. She studies pokemon types in her resident lab in Ajime Town. She gives you the choice of the starters Rooteo, Embat, and Ampib on your first journey around the region. She specializes on each type as a whole, and is currently studying the origins and behavior of ghost-type pokemon. She is Fennel’s cousin, who works in the Unova region.
Notes: I realized after I designed professor Olive that she looks like Fennel! Ah, well. She can balance books on her head for a straight hour while researching pokemon. Says it’s easier that carrying them with her arms or bearing the burden of a backpack. The apple is there so she can brag about balancing two books AND and apple. She has a pocket on her lab for each type! The secret to her long, silky hair without getting tangled is ampib mucus.
