New Diamond & Pearl anime headcanons, courtesy of Trifecta!

Rate this Entry
So I know it's... closing in on two years since my last update for Travels of the Trifecta! but I swear it's not dead, really it's not! Over the past week or so I've suddenly got jolted into making quite a bit of progress on chapter 19 (wonder if it has anything to do with seeing Paul in the new Best Wishes ED...?). I came across an unexpected bit where I had to expand on some canon from the Diamond & Pearl anime the other day ago, so I got sidetracked and now I'm sharing it with you because... haha, it's proof that the fic still lives...?



So, Barry's Sinnoh badges. As we all know, three of his eight are completely made up by the anime, and he had that red one as early on as his debut. I unexpectedly ended up writing a scene where Barry lists off his earned badges by name and what Gym Leader he won them from, meaning I had to make up some names for these badges! By chapter 19 I figure Barry at least has 4 badges, so I gave him one of the other anime-original badges, but I figured I might as well give them all proper names, Gym Leader owner names, specialty type, and what city they hail from. All the cities are made up by me, I discerned types by eliminating the already-existing types of gyms in Sinnoh and then sorta color-coded as closely as I could, then tried to make puns/obscure references for Gym Leader names. A lot of this is largely inconsequential since at best they'll only be namedropped by Barry and nothing more in the fic, but it's funny stupid shit I thought I'd share, so I'll list to you what I came up with!


Flare Badge

Won from Amber (♀), a Fire-type specialist from Domino City.


Breeze Badge

Won from Aquila (♂), a Flying-type specialist from Empyrean City.


Virus Badge

Won from Mako (♂), a Poison-type specialist from Cronobane City.


You know what's even more geeky? I made up names for every Gen I - IV Gym Leader and Frontier Brain (except the Sinnoh/Johto branch; in Trifecta that's canonly a recent establishment) that likely would have preceded the younger Gym Leaders of the present, as the purpose of this was to determine what Gym Leaders Reggie battled against when he was starting out as a trainer, which according to Trifecta canon, is around ~8 years ago. What the hey, I'll share those too. None of the badges changed.

It's just boring text so I'll at least put that under a spoiler cut. :P



That's all the nonsense I have to offer today!

    I thought the red badge and the blue badge were related and both water cause...

    Virus Badge? I actually like the sound of that, though I can't help but be reminded of Korra when I hear the name Mako.

    gaaaaaah I can't stand Mako, now I'm gonna think of that every time I look back at this ><;

    Admittedly I got lazy when I tried to find a name for a male Poison-type Gym Leader, so I looked up a list of fictional poisonous/toxic stuff and came across Mako, which references the main energy source of Final Fantasy VII that's killing the planet the more often it's used. Mako poisoning in that game really fucks you up.
