Everbloom is the fanlisting for Bulbasaur (Fushigidane) from the Pokemon (Pocket Monsters) video game series listed at The Fanlistings Network and The Anime Fanlistings Network. It is owned by Megan and is part of Hylia and Shiny Charm. This fanlisting has been open since November 28, 2016!

The name Everbloom is actually the name of a dungeon in World of Warcraft, an MMO that I have spent way too much time playing. To be honest, I did not enjoy playing through this dungeon when it was current content, but I love the environment and the concept behind everything. One of my favorite things about this dungeon is the focus on nature and what happens when it tries to defend itself. Humans made a base in the heart of the Everbloom, and nature and its guardians retaliated against this and began to grow rapidly out of control.

Overgrow also happens to be an ability in the Pokemon series - Powers up Grass-type moves when the Pokémon is in trouble. Bulbasaur is a very interesting creature with one defining feature: the bulb. As Bulbasaur grows (and evolves), the bulb also grows. I'd chosen this name to reflect this relationship between the animal and plant.

To my friends: thank you for your support to push me to apply for this fanlisting and for also letting me rant and spam about Bulbasaur on my Twitter

Design

When designing the concept for this layout, I had one idea in mind: nostalgia. Bulbasaur is an incredibly important Pokemon to many because it may represent their first starter and their first journey through Kanto in a series that has solidified its position as an important part of many childhoods. I'd chosen the classic artwork style for multiple reasons: (1) it is my favorite artwork of Bulbasaur, and (2) it was drawn in the older art style. I wanted to play off of the nature theme that is typically associated with grass-type Pokemon which is why there's an overuse of wood and tree textures. Textures provided by wood texture goddess Andrea, tanja92, yunhojaejoong, and dontayyy. Font are Fjalla One and Raleway from Google Fonts. Images of Bulbasaur are from Bulbapedia!
