Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Click here for answered interest check questions.What is this artbook about?
We are looking to create an environment-focused artbook depicting the nostalgic wonders of the Hoenn region, exploring its routes, towns, and sights. Our vision is to give readers a sense of discovery and adventure as they flip through the pages of the book, revisiting familiar locations and characters from the beloved generation 3 mainline Pokémon games.Is this project for-profit or for-charity?
This project will be for charity! We will be donating proceeds to Ocean Conservancy.How will contributors be compensated?
Contributors will participate on a volunteer basis and receive a digital copy as a gift. They may receive a physical copy depending on pre-order volume.What are the zine's specifications?
The zine plans to be an A4 landscape format art book.How many contributors are you looking for accepting?
We are looking to fill 72 pages of artwork, 16 pieces of merch, cover art, and at least 45 pieces of writing. Since we are giving page artists the option to provide up to two (2) illustrations, writers up to six (6) pieces, and merch artists up to two (2) pieces of merch, the number of contributors we are looking for may vary depending on the applications received.Are you looking to fill Moderator positions?

We will ship from the United States of America.

The content allowed must be of the Hoenn region, specifically relating to the subject assigned to the contributor.Fan creature designs are not allowed, and original human characters from outside of the project should not be in a position of focus in pieces. NSFW (not-safe-for-work) content is not allowed. Contributor content should also not promote commercial endeavors beyond the project scope.Aside from that, let your creativity run wild!My question isn't answered!

Meet the Team!
Project Lead, Finance & Layout ModHi! I'm SVLT, host of this project! I'm a huge fan of the Hoenn region; I played through Emerald a bunch of times on the emulator as a kid, but I really fell in love with the region through Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Plus, my favourite Pokémon call Hoenn home. As an artist, I lean towards traditional media but I can hold my own in digital as well. I'm so excited to bring you on this trip to Hoenn!Experience
