Future Forum Styles Discussion

Discussion in 'Serebii.net Discussion' started by RaZoR LeAf, Sep 30, 2012.

    We're coming to the end of the Type theme forum styles now, with only four remaining. What's to come after that, really I haven't got a clue. So I'm opening up the field here for discussion. I want to hear from you what you'd like to see featured as a theme for a skin.

    Here's a run down of what the forums previously had:

    The seventeen types that make a pokemon what it is (I wont list them, you know what they are). These were previously almost monochrome styles, with one predominant colour and everything being a shade darker or lighter.
    Contest Types
    The five Contest types; Cool, Beauty, Cute, Tough and Smart. Though only the first three were ever made, they were, like the original types, monochrome albeit in more pastel shades than the other types.

    Themes based on the colour names of the games that had been released. These were as follows:
    • Red, Blue & Yellow
    • Gold, Silver & Crystal
    • Ruby & Sapphire
    • Emerald
    • Diamond & Pearl
    • Fire Red & Leaf Green
    • Colosseum & XD
    • Pichu Bros!
    • Pokemon Channel

    As you can tell, the styles stopped before Platinum was released and there were no further releases after that point.


    That's what we had. This is what we have now:

    I have four of the types remaining to implement; Ghost, Ground, Normal and Water. When the last four have been completed, I'll run through all the styles again and make sure I haven't missed anything, fill in blanks and update the older ones with things i've learnt and added on the newer ones.

    We have a Black & White / B2W2 theme now, whether or not you want to see the older series remade is up to you. Regardless of the decision made, there wont be a repeat in 'games' as it were, so there will be only one GSC theme, and not an additional HGSS theme.

    So the rest isn't necessarily up to you. It's up to Serebii at the end of it all. These are his forums. But ideas don't come form nowhere, and I'd like to know what people want. So suggest. Themes, ideas, colour schemes, features on the banner, etc. Tell me what you'd like.

    Please keep in mind, that we will not be doing themes for your favourite pokemon or your favourite character. If we did it for one, we'd have to do it for all.

    Maybe a sort of Evil group-based theme? Rocket, Galactic, etc?

    Or a Pokemon evo/duo/trio/quartet/group theme. Some of the colors could get...kinda funky, probably. But we had the RSE and RBY ones at one point, so...I mean...It couldn't get much more clashing than that, right?

    On a less likely (but more personal preference-y) note, I'd love Mewtwo/Rayquaza/Lugia styles (separate, not as one). I think Rayquaza (and I guess Groudon/Kyogre too) could lend very interesting to a type of tribal pattern/theme/design in the banner.

    But, then again, I'm a big fan of minimalist stuff for the forums.

    How about a Battle Frontier style, then a Battle Subway style. They would go perfect with the contest types. You could also do a Champion style, something mixing all the champions over the years, the same would be done with the Rivals. Mystery Dungeon Style anyone?

    Or how about a Nintendo style. Joe seems to keep up on current Nintendo news. It could be a style that mixes all the systems that Pokemon games have been released on.

    A Conquest style would be nice.

    I'd also like a Battle Subway style.

    Styles for legendary trios, perhaps? That's a lot, but it'd be cool to have a theme for Rayquaza / Groudon / Kyogre, Palkia / Dialga / Giratina, etc.

    But I'd rather a Mystery Dungeon theme like jb said.

    I am up for the Evil Organizations theme. Any of them would be fine, but I would like Team Rocket I guess. Going with the Classics XP Even though we already have two darkish themes and Team Rocket is pretty much Black. <.> And would clash with Darks them with Black and Red because of Zoroark..

    Team Aqua/Magma could have one theme for themselves. Combining Red and Blue like the BW theme of Reshi and Zek.

    Team Galactic and Team Plasma have pretty similar themes in my mind with their colors... <.> But Team Plasma would be nice to have with a Three colored them of Silver, Black and Blue.

    Pretty much those is what I have XP

    And reading about weather or not having older series... I guess it would be nice to have... FireRed and LeafGreen. I liked its combination before and now that the banners can be made a bit smoother to have a soft merge of colors, Red and Green colored them for it would be great.

    Okie now this is all I have XP

  9. Skarm™

    Skarm™ Light It Up

    Try legendary Pokemon, like a group of them like the Kami trio or The legendary dogs or birds, etc
  10. Lightning Dragon

    Lightning Dragon LIGHTNING FLIGHT!!!!

    What about one with the Shiny Beasts from the Zoroark Movie? That would be marvelous <3

    ...but I would LOVE to see a PMD one.

    I would love to see the Colosseum & XD style remade and possibly one for the 3 legendary birds trio (Articuno , Zapdos , and Moltres)

    I think the 4 muskerdeers would make a good theme with keldeo in it's resolution forme

    My idea is pretty basic: a theme with pseudo-legendary Pokemon.

    Like a Pokemon Ranger theme! Colors could be red and blue, with all the rangers maybe?

    One that shows all the gym leaders in each region back to back with Castelia City in the background.

    I never have a preference as to what kind of theme is made, so I don't have any direct suggestions there. The only thing I can think to suggest is maybe seeking out a person or two who know how to work vB skin editing and seeing what they can do. Like "higher-end" themes compared to the ones around now, which are pretty basic, at least in my opinion after seeing just how awesome skins can be. That's all I can think to suggest. For me it doesn't matter what the theme of a skin is as long as it's made well, because I can love a really well-made skin even if it's of a Pokémon or character I don't care for.

    Remake the old Ruby and Sapphire skin in the new format. That was my favorite skin, and I'd love to have it back.

    What about dual types? Like every once in awhile, not to often, could do dual typed skins. But ones that colors aren't to clashed together.

    No, there's no point to dual types other than people wanting to see their favourite pokemon in the banner again.
