    PokéPoetry! #5


    Once again, PB writers, it's time for an exhilarating contest! We are excited to introduce a new style of contest - one that we've never done before. I don't want to espouse a bunch of superfluous jargon, so I'll cut to the chase. We are introducing a poetry contest. "Well, what do we have to do?" "What does this contest entail?" Simply, you must follow these rules, and we will explain.



    I. You must reserve a post in this thread, detailing your chosen style of poetry. Example:

    Code:
    Username: William Shakespeare
    Chosen style: Sonnet (Iambic Pentameter)

    II. Once we acquire the list of names from your reserved posts, we will RANDOMLY assign a Pokémon with which you will create your freestyle poem.
    • Your poem must at least contain five lines to be accepted, with the sole exception being a haiku.
    • You must write your poem about that assigned Pokemon (you may not request for a change). Failure to do so will result in a disqualification.
    • Be descriptive!

    III. Don't plagiarize; any instances of plagiarism will result in a disqualification from the contest and a ban.

    IV. You will be able to choose up to three of your favorite poems during the judging phase. You will be able to either "like" the contestant's post or send a PM to [mod]Turtwig[/mod] with the name(s) of the contestant('s)/poem's title. Anyone can vote, not just contestants! All members are encouraged to take part in the voting process.

    V. You may edit your poem until the voting phase begins.

    VI. Please make sure you use proper spelling and grammar! Poems that fail to reflect this will be disqualified.
    [/td][/tr]

    This contest will be very relaxed, and you will be given the opportunity to write your poem in any way you desire. For example, if you are assigned a dark, gloomy Pokemon like Mismagius, you are free to make your poem reflect upon that Pokemon's nature and type, or you may completely surprise us and write the complete opposite and incorporate the positives and playfulness of Mismagius. It's all up to you! A few examples of the types of poetry are as follows:
    • Free Verse
    • Blank Verse
    • Haiku
    • Sonnet
    • Epic
    • Limerick
    • Song (duh!)
      And many, many more... (Google's your friend)



    1/30 - Sign Ups begin.

    2/4 - Sign Ups end and Pokémon are assigned.

    2/13 - Entries for Round Two are due and voting begins.

    2/16 - Voting ends and winners are announced!

    [/td][/tr]

    Aggron Rap

    Name’s Aggron, don’t aggravate me,
    For 800 lbs be the last thing you see,
    I munch on metal, spit it out easy
    And I spit out rhymes like I spit out Blissey

    There be no bliss when I’m around
    I’ll Head Smash, Heavy Slam, maintainin’ ma ground,
    Ma metal be tough - metallic compound
    EQ me all ya want - I got Sturdy, I’m sound

    There’s no gain, all pain,
    Cross me once and I’m inhumane,
    I’m the beast that cannot be tamed,
    Look at me and you’ll be maimed.

    I destroy the opposition - what a sorry bunch they are,
    Iron Head on Flabebe and immune to Gengar
    Let me drop some beats and pick you off one by one
    Though there be little point - I’ve already won.

    Yo Cleffa - ya need to Rock Polish up ya rhymes,
    There’s no effect usin’ Pound numerous times,
    Your Fairy Dust - I just sniff that away,
    Iron Tailin’ ya ass back to Johto’s days

    A ball of pink - where I heard that before?
    You just a rip-off of Jigglypuff - rejected at the door,
    Star-Shaped Pokemon? Staryu beat ya to it,
    Let me finish up my rhymes ‘cause I be spewin’ it.

    Scorched Feathers I like you - but Haiku,
    Be more adventurous than that,
    Yo Gloom is gloomy and yo rhymes are flat
    You be the Gloom-bringa, I be the doom-bringa,
    Poison Powder ad infinitum - I just Giga Impact.

    Ya may have Giga Drain but I’m drainin’ up ya style,
    Ya may have Sweet Scent but my scent is all vile,
    Ya may have Chlorophyll but ya lack my guile,
    I overpower you ‘cause I’m versatile.

    Chaos Jackal, call Treecko “The Pest”?
    Well I’m the pesticide,
    Ma deep battery acid burns through its weak hide,
    Ya Razor Leaf ain’t gonna do much to ma pride,
    Aqua Tail in the chest while yo using Bide.

    “Treecko the Gecko is laughing at you”
    Well he be laughing no more,
    He can climb up ceilings but he can’t escape my Roar,
    Sure he’s stealthy but ma Stealth Rock is too,
    I be the juggernaut and I’m overpowerin’ you.

    I’m powering through y’all
    It’s time for y’all to condone,
    My demolision of y’all,
    Now let me use my Mega Stone.

    WHAT’S UP LOSERS?
    LET ME FILTER THROUGH THE REST,
    WE’VE GOT CHARMELEON THE CHAMELEON WHO’S ONLY SECOND BEST

    FIRE BLAST? I FILTER DAT
    BRICK BREAK? I FILTER DAT
    FLAMETHROWER? I FILTER DAT
    YOU DON’T DEAL CRAP WHEN I FILTER DAT

    IT’S GETTIN’ HOT IN HERE YET YOU’RE THE ONE THAT’S ROASTIN’
    AND WHILE IT’S TRUE THAT I’M THE ONE WHO’S BOASTIN’
    IT’S JUSTIFIED
    AS YO FLAMES SUBSIDE
    AND YOU FALL VICTIM TO ANOTHER AGGRON TOASTIN’

    YO MELOETTA, I ADMIT, YOU CAN DANCE AND SHOUT
    BUT MA HEAVY METAL’S SHOWIN’ METTLE TO DROWN YA OUT,
    MELOETTA?
    LET’S JUST FORGET HER,
    YOU’RE DEAD WEIGHT WHEN I GO ON MA TIMELY ROUT

    YA GODDAMN SINGIN’? I FILTER DAT
    I FILTER EVERYTHIN’ THAT SOUNDS LIKE A DYING CAT
    YA KNOW WHAT, I’VE HAD ENOUGH; JUST fudge IT
    YA COULDN’T CARRY A TUNE IN A BUCKET.

    HEY GENGAR, MEGA PAL,
    YA PLAYIN’ TAG WHILE I’M BOOSTIN’ MA MORALE
    AND WHILE IT BE TRU YOU’RE MA BIGGEST FOE
    I AIN’T SCARED OF NO POKEMON
    AND AIN’T SCARED OF NO SHADOW

    YA GRIN IS A FACADE FOR THE LIFELESS CREATURE YA ARE
    YO FOCUS BLAST MISSES AND I FIND IT BIZARRE
    THAT YA EVEN THINK OF TAKIN’ ON THE MIGHT THAT IS MOI
    YA BE THE POVERTY WHILE I BE THE BOURGEOIS

    FLABEBE, NO FLOWER AND YA FLOAT AWAY,
    I JUST MASH YOU DEAD TO A FRENCH SOUFFLE
    A FLICK OF MA TOE AND YA KNOCKED OUT COLD
    YOU TINKERBELL-END, MY HEART IS COLD
    AND I DON’T CARE HOW TINY YA BE
    I’LL MURDER YA UNLESS YA HURRIEDLY FLEE

    GOURGEIST - AND SHINY TO BOOT!
    YA CRAPPY DESIGN RENDERS YA MOOT
    FOREST’S CURSE?
    I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WORSE
    BEING CARVED FOR FUN OR BEING EATEN AS A FRUIT

    AH, AND KINGLER, “KING OF THE SEA”,
    YA CLAWS ARE NO MATCH WHEN I’M YO ENEMY
    AND I’M NO STRANGER TO YO WATERY TURF
    I’M A GODFUCKINGZILLA AND I CAN LEARN SURF

    NOW ENDS MY RAP WHERE I’VE DESTROYED ALL,
    I’VE LEFT TRAINERS IMPRESSED AND USERS APPALLED
    AND I LEAVE YOU HERE, UTTERING MA LAST WORDS WITH GLEE,
    I’M AGGRON, DON’T fudging AGGRAVATE ME.

    raps are forms of poetry, right?
    right?





    right?

    Meloetta's tale

    [​IMG]
    In the cold, cold night
    She was alone and wiped her tears
    Her eyes was numb, she tired to cry
    So she lied on her bed, sung aloud to sky

    Deep-deep inside she was a little girl
    Naive and kind with too soft of heart
    No one guided her, she was too scared to ask
    So she sung a melody, hoped for company
    Shed down her last tear, in her last breath

    And that's how Meloetta was born

    Born from melody out of desperation
    Tears crystallize to her eyes
    She isn't scared anymore
    World is so huge and she finally can out and play

    She make songs about the sky and everything under
    Sings them aloud in the clear auburn day, or under the moonlight
    She's dancing along with the music in her head
    Kissing hearts of people that is endowed to hear

    Some is said, she still sings in her sleep
    Snoring a hum, making rhymes with her breath

    She sings about a dream and hope for better world
    She sings to the scared little girls
    Guiding the lost, only with her voice
    Meloetta knows the hurt, understands the frightened
    So she sings happy song, to bright hearts of lonely souls

    She sings, all she do is singing
    So Meloetta singing her old forgotten song
    Composed by loneliness, and dream of better world
    Rage by her own weakness, her inability to change
    And that's how Meloetta transforms

    Treecko, huh... Not exactly my style, but I think I can do something.

    The Pest

    Up your walls, on your ceiling
    The green gecko is mocking you
    He cares not about you, he just jumps around
    Leaves you behind, raging and steaming

    You hunt it all over the house
    You try hard, but in vain
    Treecko cares not of your protests
    For now the house is his domain

    He avoids all you might throw
    These feet of his are such a pain
    As he clings on walls and ceilings
    Defying gravity and raising a brow

    He chows on his branch like a tough guy
    Leaps around and slaps you with his tail
    His Bullet Seed plagues you wherever you go
    No matter what you do, it’s to no avail

    Treecko the gecko is laughing at you
    As you keep on falling behind
    He leaves the house when he wants to
    For more trouble he seeks, this tough guy

    in to dominate with a limerick about shiny Gourgeist, buck yeah

    She floats around without a care
    and tickles you with purple hair
    If you hear her sad song
    for this world you're not long
    It's a pit of shiny despair.

    The star:

    Pink light reflecting through the sky
    Twinkling so bright, yet tiny to the eye
    The Japanese, they call her Py
    Remember, not all legends are a lie.

    A shape of a star, and a star she shall be
    Never peace, people always want to see
    Her tiny brown tips in the dark grey sea
    If you get up too close, she shall flee

    Nobody knows where she is from
    The moon they suspect, but that looks so glum
    If you find out the truth you will think it is dumb
    The person who tells it you, labelled as scum

    Please do not fret, your secret's with me
    Nobody knows what you do want to be
    You are a Pokemon as much as a tiny Eevee
    They will understand you, do not worry

    So please, little star, grace us with lights
    Break free from your peril of strife-ridden fights
    You will always continue your luminous flights
    You'll never forget, the breath-taking sights

    Come down to Kalos, to Johto or Kanto
    To regions where war is now just a no-show
    Where people will see your beautiful glow
    And after a glance, they won't want to go

    Join in a world of dancing and glee
    Where love and compassion is all you could see
    With beautiful landscapes, lighted by thee
    Yes, little Cleffa, please come with me.
