Miss Lele, made from Tapu Lele and Mismagius, requested anonymously.

So uh… yeah, this was kind of a nightmare, and here’s why:

Mismagius only has 3 or 4 … hues? Purple, other purple, yellow, red. So they can have HELLA different shades of each (only 1 shade of red and 2 of yellow [in the eyes] which leaves SO many purple shades).

Tapu Lele has what feels like a thousand. Only really two shades for each color (except, I think, 3 pinks).

So anyway… these ended up having WAY too many colors to be “official” BW style sprites but I didn’t want her beautiful hair to just blend right into her hat.

The second one was actually the first I made… I like the top one better.

This will not deter me from using Lele’s hair in the future.

I made it to Laverre, got my gym badge from Valerie, saved the Pokeball Factory, and now I’m in the Lost Hotel on the way to Dendemille. I stopped to get full hearts on Pokemon Amie with my whole team. (Everyone’s at four so far!) (Also I got 1144 on Head It!)

But as always, the most important thing is that KNIGHT IS NOW KNIGHT STEELIX! And now the whole team is complete! Aren’t they beautiful?

TSplicA Royals update!

So I haven’t made much progress because 1. I had 2 exams and 2. I spent a bunch of time super training my team. They’re all fully trained tho!!!

Anyways, I made it through the Reflection Cave, beat Serena, beat Korrina as a gym leader, beat Korrina as a Lucario trainer, and got the mega evolution ring! But most importantly, DUCHESS EVOLVED INTO A GARDEVOIR AND SHE’S BEAUTIFUL!

I’m kinda new to splicing I’m mainly a gijinka maker but this challenge caught my attention. Of course I have to go with my favorite gen 3.

Mega Shedinja

There’s a reason you aren’t supposed to look into it’s back…

(it keeps wonder guard and gains a respectable amount of hp, it’s special attack and special defence are unmatched)

______________________________________________________

Hello, TSplicA admin Ryan here! I want to preface what I’m about to say by saying that wow I absolutely love the design you made here! Shedinja truly looks like the killing machine it was always meant to be, and there’s a great dark aura coming from its back playing off of its already established design.

That said, as a big lover of shedinja I can’t agree with anything else for multiple reasons. 

1. “gains a respectable amount of hp”

aside from the fact that a pokemon has NEVER changed their hp stat upon mega evolving and I don’t think that’ll change soon, I feel like that would take away a lot of the essence of shedinja!

2. “its special attack and special defense are unmatched”

A mega evolution only grants 100 extra base stat points, and even if you focused all of that into either special attack or special defense, ignoring the buff you suggest to HP, its special attack or special defense would max out at 130 each, which is only considered relatively good on non mega evolved pokemon and pretty weak for a mega, and far from unmatched. Gengar for example has 130 special attack and Aegislash has 150 special attack or special defense based on its form. Shuckle boasts 230 special defense, now that is unmatched. It’s special defense would also be irrelevant without the HP boost.

3. Shedinja already has great potential as a strong physical attacker and a better physical movepool than special! While it doesn’t have that great of a movepool, it does have access to swords dance and shadow sneak, as well as x scissor or shadow claw for a bit more damage. 

Overall the best thing would be to either dump all 100 points in attack or split it between attack and speed, a 70/30 with speed gaining higher boost would be most beneficial letting it reach a cool base 110 speed and still very powerful 120 attack stat, all while maintaining what the pokemon originally was designed to do and keeping its gimmick.

Sources: I am a pokemon master and have completed both pokemon x and pokemon sapphire with only a shedinja

But again I’m only poking a little fun, I really appreciate this submission and I think what you’ve done here looks beyond awesome! Shedinja is probably my favorite gen 3 pokemon as well :)

Linguistic Proof

Since there’s a tumultuous disagreement over on thatsplicingadventure regarding how their acronym (TSplicA) is correctly pronounced, I figured I’d give a linguistic contribution in the English context:

When words are abbreviated by chopping off endings rather than only using the first letter, they tend to be pronounced independently of the original word (e.g. “Wed.” = /wed/ & “Wednesday” = /wendsdeɪ/). Words can also change pronunciation when they are shortened (e.g. “specs” = /spɛks/ & “specifications” = /spesɪfɪkeɪʃəns/). I cannot think of any examples at the moment where the original pronunciation is preserved in a situation where it would be linguistically expected to change.

The tiny amount of data I’ve accumulated here shows more of a trend towards /ti splɪkə/ (“T Splicka”) than /ti splaɪs eɪ/ (T Splice A") or /ti splaɪsə/ (“T Splice-a”). In conclusion, pronouncing it with a hard c (“Splick”) seems more linguistically appropriate, but it’s stupid and wrong. Obviously “Splice.” Just like gif is not “jif” and nutella doesn’t have newts in it.

 

Happy Birthday TSplicA!

One year ago today, AlakaSam started up this here nightmare inducing mess of a blog, and I wanted to congratulate her on keeping it running, as well as celebrate a year of splicey goodness with some cake and ice cream! Happy birthday TSplicA! -Zach

I made it to Snowbelle and Wulfric was deep inside the Winding Woods. We made it through the woods into the Pokemon Village. After exploring for a while, we went back to Snowbelle to challenge Wulfric.

Lord Charizard made quick work of the gym with his Flamethrower. After earning our badge, we made a quick stop in Dendemille to teach Lord Air Slash. Then we went to Route 16 (SINCE I CAN FINALLY USE WATERFALL!) and picked up Dark Pulse for Prince Greninja (Prince and Lord are trained in Special Attack.)

Now that the boys have learned some new moves, we’re on our way to the Elite Four!

Whoa it’s been a while since I updated. Got busy cuz I started I started raising baby chicks. And I’ve been all wrapped up in this TPP situation.

Anyways, I started playing again! Made it to Dendemille! I farmed for Heart Scales so I could teach my Pokemon some slick new moves. Made it through the Frost Cavern and saved a poor Abomasnow from Team Flare.

Then I rode a Mamoswine on the way to Anistar. (Does anyone else make the Mamoswine moonwalk?) I got my gym badge from Olympia! After that, I went to Lumiose to kick ass at Lysandre Labs.

After that, me and my friends went to Geosenge to stop the ultimate weapon. Fuckin’ kiiiicked Lysandre’s assssssss. Like twice? Was it twice? I lost count cuz he sucks hehe. Also, it was real fun doin’ double battles with Serena! (Can I ship my character with her it’s really cute I like it.)

AZ told me the story of his Pokemon and I just wanna give him a hug. Anyways, now that things have calmed down, it’s time to get back on track and make my way to Couriway!

We did it! We completed pokemon sapphire! But that isn’t all I have planned for TSplicA plays sapphire…
Remember Fernando the roselia we caught a while back for contests? I plan on periodically updating you guys with progress on contests. First we will take on beauty contests with Fernando, then I’ll have you vote on which contest type and pokemon we use! Hopefully we will have master rank in every contest before omega ruby and alpha sapphire come out this November.

TSPLICA ADMIN RYAN HAS SOME IMPORTANT NEWS ON THE MATTER OF TWITCH PLAYS POKEMON

Okay so I’m sure we all know what twitch plays pokemon is, but if not I’ll give you a brief explanation. Basically around 60,000-100,000 people are all trying to control one game of pokemon red via a livestream chat, and we can vote on how we fight for said control. In anarchy mode it reads every button input and will act it out as it sees them. In democracy mode it waits 10 seconds before acting on the input with the highest votes, and in this mode you can vote for button combinations.

NOW COMES THE IMPORTANT PART

If anyone wants to see twitch plays pokemon succeed and have a chance of actually beating this game I suggest listening. 

If we don’t get through the safari zone in few enough tries, WE CAN MAKE IT SO THE GAME IS NOT ABLE TO BE COMPLETED ANYMORE. PLEASE SPREAD THAT INFORMATION. 

The safari zone costs money to go through every time, and you have a limited number of steps to do what you need. If we waste our steps in anarchy mode and lose too many times, we may not have enough money to get through this area. THE SAFARI ZONE IS A REQUIRED AREA FOR BOTH SURF AND STRENGTH, WHICH ARE BOTH NEEDED TO PROGRESS AND COMPLETE THE GAME. 

THERE IS NOT AN INFINITE SUPPLY OF MONEY IN THIS GAME.

WE ARE ALREADY AT A LOW AMOUNT OF MONEY.

I DON’T CARE IF WE GO ANARCHIST AFTER COMPLETING THE SAFARI ZONE. I DON’T CARE IF WE TAKE YEARS TO COMPLETE THIS GAME BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE DICKING AROUND. BUT WE NEED TO COMPLETE THE SAFARI ZONE FIRST SO WE CAN SECURELY DICK AROUND IN ANARCHY MODE.

PLEASE VOTE FOR DEMOCRACY AND COMPLETE THE SAFARI ZONE FOR THE SAKE OF THIS RUN.

IT WOULD BE REALLY COOL TO SEE THIS MANY PEOPLE BAND TOGETHER AND COMPLETE POKEMON, AND I WOULD BE VERY, VERY SAD IF THE OPPORTUNITY WAS RUINED BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT “ANARCHY IS A MORE FUN WAY TO PLAY”, OR BECAUSE OF SOME DUMB MEME AFFILIATION.
