Every now and then I pop over to the Oregon Human Society site. I’m not sure how ready I am to adopt another dog, but sometimes the mood strikes and off I go to coo and indulge. I particularly enjoy seeing whatever naming scheme the OHS staff go with for a new bunch of dog listings. They were all Star Wars a couple weeks ago, it was adorable.

Anyway, so I checked earlier this week, because cute puppies, and suddenly I saw this little girl.





I’m not sure how much I believe in love at first sight, BUT I SEE THIS AND YOU KNOW MAYBE.

I don’t think we’re ready to act on anything, but it did occur to me (once my flailing began to subside) that this is the first time I’ve felt drawn to a dog that didn’t look anything at all like Jett.

I think that’s a positive sign.

CONTEST RESULTS: Boudica/Andrasta-Inspried Fighting Type

Behold and wonder: sableye-of-the-tigers winning design, and Mysteria’s very first Fighting-type Pokemon!

Now, it’s time to get to work! First of all…

POLL A: Typing

The original post sugegsted this Pokemon be pure Fighting-type. Are we cool with that?

A1. Yes

A2. No, give it a secondary type (please include suggestions)

POLL B: Gender

The basis for the contest were, of course, a warrior woman and a victory goddess. The post for this Fakemon suggested it follow suit by being female-only. So?

B1. Yes, they should be female-only

B2. No, there should be males as well

B3. They should be genderless

And one last thing *at least for now)…


What do we call it?
