Pokemon Nameless NPC Appreciation Zine Application
What do everyday people in the Pokemon world do? What special jobs are there in the Pokemon world that are not in our world? What unique problems and solutions occur? Think about careers/activities that would only happen in the Pokemon world, or careers/activities in our world and how they would be different in the Pokemon world. This is the place to show us!

This is a FREE SFW (Safe For Work) All Ages, FAMILY FRIENDLY Zine that looks at the nameless, sometimes unseen, Non Playable Human Characters from the Pokemon world. We are not looking to explore canon characters in this zine.

Some Examples: Unnamed police officer, okay. Officer Jenny, not okay. How is the trash man's job different than here? What Pokemon is used as a seeing-eye dog? What does battle referee training look like? Pokemart cornering the market on Pokeflutes by following a Snorlax around with a cart (below). This is meant to be open ended and fun and creative!

This will be distributed for FREE via google docs at the end of the project. This is not a paid opportunity. This is by fans for fans for fun.

Looking For: Illustrations, 1 Page Comics, Short Stories, Poems, or maybe more! The human character must be the focus of the piece, but interaction with Pokemon is okay, and even encouraged.

Below is an example of content. Definitely in the Pokemon world, and a recognizable character, but not a named character with a backstory. We want you to create your own story! (Example does not represent stylistic, medium, character, or any other preferences other than generic story idea generation)
