The Suocéverse Wiki
Hi everyone, I’m Venia Silente, a Pokémon fanfic author, developer and, as I like to call myself, “consulting worldbuilder”. I have been writing Pokémon fanfiction for a long time (at least since 2008 with Elusive Goals) but they were mostly independent stories without larger themes going on… until I published Cuasi Legendario in 2012. Since then, I've slowly built a concept of a Pokémon world that unifies my various theories, headcanons and appreciations of canons. Thus, here I introduce you to
In short, “The Suocéverse” is the Pokémon ‘verse where most if not all of my stories take place.
If you are asking yourself what a ‘verse is, the best definition I can give that would be one of the combination of elements of worldbuilding that define a unique setting such that the setting can be shared across different production works - be it TV shows (think Buffyverse), movies (think the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies), and now fanfic (think-well, you’re here…). Thus this document and wiki describe a “Suocéverse”, that being the chosen name of the shared setting I've come up with.
So, what is the Suocéverse like? Well, to quote from the development primer…
“A world inhabited by humans and creatures they call Pokémon; they work together for balance, glory and fun following an ancient covenant - humans provide the goals and Pokémon provide the power to realize them.”
This ‘verse is my personal interpretation of the Pokémon franchise - a blend of various Pokémon canons, albeit with some concepts and mechanics strongly adapted, incorporating material from sources such as PokéSpé, trading card games and the PMD spinoffs. It's also a reference-rich world, with various concepts from other franchises adapted for shout outs or homages.
This documentation wiki is being built from a lot of sources and it is primarily and heavily a work in progress. You might be interested in the quick&dirty brief if you want a first look at what is it about, the Worldbuilding Index index so that you can get right to the various topics and features of the setting, or the Suocéverse Primer if you want a deeper look of the setting and how it is built.
