PokéBeach Adventures is an unofficial fan story that gives artists the opportunity to show off their artistic talent to all of PokéBeach's visitors! Each week a new banner will debut from a different artist and a link will be provided to their portfolio so you can check them out! This program is an attempt to expose the fandom's talented artists to the world while also bringing more art discussion and creativity to PokéBeach. You may use this thread to discuss each banner, the story, and the characters. PokéBeach Adventures was written in 2012, the same year its characters were designed. Over the past few years hints of the story were planted in various PokéBeach news stories, Tweets, and even our old forum banner. The program was designed in tandem with the new website and all of its various programs, but since it took a while to get the new website up (a while = several years ), the story is only just now debuting in 2015. The story has a documented beginning, middle, and end that only two people know, and it will slowly be revealed over time. New characters will also be revealed as the story goes on. And of course the original characters we created are PokéBeach's new mascots, as you will see throughout the layout. The story will require that you pay close attention. Most of what you will see means something, and even then, the story may not just take place through the banners... In due time you may have to keep your eyes open to other hidden possibilities if you are to see the whole picture. Will you be the first to discover the secrets to this story and its characters as they are revealed? Will you be the first to seize the gift you were bestowed at birth? If you would like to create a banner for this program, please fill out the Artist application (which you can find in the navbar under "PokéBeach").
