    Default Create your own Pokémon Senryū

    Follow in Professor Orchid's footsteps and try your hand at Pokémon senryū. A senryū is a poem that has 17 syllables or less that's about a Pokémon or a character of the Anime.

    For example, one of the first Pokémon Senryū to be seen in the Anime was "A Raichu, one per household; private power generator."

    So, make your own senryū about pokémon or character you like!

    This is the format of a senryuu, taking from Wikipedia:

    Senryū (川柳?, literally 'river willow') is a Japanese form of short poetry similar to haiku in construction: three lines with 17 or fewer total morae (or "on", often translated as syllables, but see the article on onji for distinctions). Senryū tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature, and senryū are often cynical or darkly humorous while haiku are more serious. Unlike haiku, senryū do not include a kireji (cutting word), and do not generally include a kigo, or season word.

    A senryu has a 5-7-5 syllable format, guys. Try again.

    But hey, I guess I can post the ones I rewrote from actual senryu straight from the anime:

    Let us run a race
    The Sand shouts "Get on your marks
    One, two, three, let's go"

    The Rafflesia
    always walk in the lush shade
    of their own petals

    See? Not hard.
    So.

    That's a haiku. Although a senryu can be written in that way, it doesn't have to be in 5-7-5 format. Also, haikus focus on nature, while senryus don't.

    Here's another one:

    Leafy bulbasaur
    stares green with envy
    at the bulbous venusaur

    Iris has big hair
    Purple, pretty, powerful
    Smells like dragon poop

    Cilan's tasting time
    It's fun and easy to like
    But he has bad taste

    It usually is (and a haiku doesn't have to follow that format either), and it still needs to follow the specific style that's much easier to get across with that format (and which your attempts completely lack).
    So.

    It was simply an attempt, and this thread is a game. Attempts are fine. They do not need to be perfect. You do not need to go on and on about it; anymore and I will consider it a personal attack against another user.
