Group Info

Hidden from everyday society, there are certain people who can transform into Pokemon. These are called Pokeumans. Some want to live in peace and harmony with humanity, while others believe that they are a superior race.

But not all is well. A secret war rages between the Pokeuman and the Pokextinction organizations. The former sees themselves as rebels, hiding from humanity due to fear of persecution or fighting against an oppressive system. The latter, on the other hand, fear the Pokeuman want a world ruled by only Pokeuman and thus, they strive to serve as humanities’ guardians.

You must be one of them. What's your name?

Hello, and welcome one and all for 2017’s Pokéuman awards! It’s been a long awaited event that we’ve agonized back and forth about, but that wait is finally over!  Here we are to show off the best of the best from this year’s submissions!  This year we’re doing things a bit differently as we have decided to pick the top seven best we had come into our inbox, as this was our seventh year.  Our picks best show off what this year has brought us in terms of ideas, presentations, themes, and subject matter.  They all were so radically different from each other that picking which one we liked best was a disservice to the merits of the rest, so here they are in no particular order!

Under a false sky

A bit of a confession here: the group sees so few comics submitted that this really didn’t have much running against it.  Don’t let that give you the impression that this is in any way unworthy of the award however; the world building here is remarkable and really makes excellent use of the comic format.  Even the tiniest details hidden away in every single panel speak volumes worth of information, in ways a printed story could never do.  And this is its first year!  Here’s to hoping that it keeps on going long past this!  Really give this one a watch!

Beyond my world

Pokemon stories, and by extension Pokeuman stories, naturally lend themselves to stories of big battles and the rise to glory from humble beginnings.  That, is not what this story is about; in fact this story is none of that. It’s about just those humble beginnings, giving us a warm, wholesome picture of the world we see in so many stories; yet the perspective is so radically different that it feels totally new. A simple, well written story that has absolutely no need of epic struggles and grand conflicts, telling of the small life out in the woods where the rest of the world is irrelevant.  The plot may be slow but it fits the mood, and the characters have plenty of depth to keep you hooked as they progress down their own journeys.

Carter of the ___

Pokeumans is a lot of different things to a lot of different people.  Some find joy in imagining themselves as a high-powered creature who goes around kicking bad guy butt for a living.  Others take a more somber tone in dealing with the matters of being forcibly evicted from one's family and living a secreted life as some strange dangerous creature.  Carter of the Things however takes a truly unique, almost surreal twist on the concept.  It's wacky, it's wild, it's something that words simply cannot adequately describe.  This definitely wins its place here for being so unique, and it's certainly worth a look.

Descending into madness

Not everyone gets to have a nice life after being taken away from their parents, never to see them again. Okay, many people don’t have a nice life at all after an experience like that. But this story takes that idea and just runs with it. It shows a part of life that’s perfect, not by any stretch of the imagination. It shows what happens when life; when all those good things, from the little ones people take for granted to the big joys people strive for, are suddenly ripped away.  And what happens to the poor soul who has to suffer for it.  Even a small changes can make one’s perspective on a matter  quite different.  This one does it in well enough that it makes you wonder just how this is madness is going to continue.

What They Became

Every wonder what kind of desperate measures would have to be taken during a prolonged siege?  Not just a crowd of innocents huddled in a fortified room; we mean the REALLY desperate things.  Things that go against all morals and throw out basic ethics in the name of survival, and then what happens when the deed is done and your future life has been ruined by horrible experiments for the sake of a quick power boost?  Well, then you get this story, showing both the horrors of war and the necessary of it in a light we rarely think about. And this isn’t even into going about the design of many of the hybrids we see and tend to whitewash, their quirks and flaws that makes it hard to forget even after months of reading it.

Battle Bonds

Sometimes you don’t need to beat around the bush to get what you want, and if you’re looking for some straight-up Pokeumans story goodness, this one fits the bill. The story itself isn’t very diverse in many respects, focusing on teenagers doing typical teenager things.  At least, if one assumes “transforming into a Pokemon” to be a typical teenager thing; but if that didn’t happen it wouldn’t be typical for the group, now would it?  But teenagers are people too and they still have their stories to tell.  They might not be epic, they might not be groundbreaking, but if they’re done well they don’t need to be. This one focuses on what is important to somebody, takes that into consideration throughout, and gives us a tale of these characters to follow along and appreciate. For that, it deserve a place here.


We'll be honest here, we weren't sure who exactly should get this award.  I mean, Pride's the natural recipient, being the star of the show and the one most eager to exalt themself; but this wouldn't be what it is without the motivations of Greed and Gluttony in getting the spot.  Envy and Wrath would be most upset with us if they didn't even get acknowledged, and Lust just wanted to hang out with the guy handing off the award.  And Sloth, well, honestly we weren't expecting him to show up here at all.  So instead we're just going to give it to the story itself.  Your winner here is Transendence, for such a pleasantly surreal inner look at the mind of some poor sap embroiled in the Pokeumans universe.

You know what? I've known of this group for a while now, and I'm now considering joining sometime. Although, I do have a few questions, and probably even more in the future. Right now I have three. #1: Can I make a bio of my character before their story? Or at all, for that matter? #2: Do I absolutely have to write a story? #3: I'm thinking about coming up with one of those "special powers" for my character. Should I decide to go through with it, I assume I need to get permission from an admin?
