with you I’d dance in a storm in my best dress

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain. Hello there Pokémon trainer, welcome to sapphire.nu, Mishiro’s Pokémon domain housing her sites dedicated to none other than the cute and strong Pocket Monsters! Besides being the birthstone of September and a traditional gift for a 65th wedding anniversary, the name ‘sapphire’ also manifests itself in the third installments of the Pokémon role-playing video games and also a main character in the Pokémon Adventures (Pokémon Special) manga series.

Being a September baby whose first official Pokémon game was Pokémon Sapphire back in 2003, purchasing this domain name meant so much, especially when it was a gift for my 20th birthday. Please use the words below to navigate around the site and if you’re feeling a little lost, you can always return to the island overview page and choose your destination once again. :)


rain came pouring down when I was drowning

Dream higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean. When I discovered that the name sapphire.nu was available, I could only resist for about 3 months before purchasing the name. Obviously, it was going to be my Pokémon domain but as university life kept me busy at that time, I couldn’t dedicate my time to work on a proper layout and proper content for this domain.

Hence, I made Stage On!, a small-scaled Pokémon collective at pkmn.skycrown.org to keep track of my evergrowing Pokémon fanlistings. It was online since 26th July 2014 and was named after May’s contest catch phrase. Some years later, I got motivated to work on sapphire.nu after the outbreak of Pokémon shrines, cliques and web-rings all over the web. Finally, sapphire.nu officially succeeded Stage On! as my Pokémon collective on 26th July 2016, exactly 2 years after the establishment of Stage On!

You are currently viewing the 2nd version of the domain, featuring the four iconic islands of the Alola region as well as various beautiful artwork of the in-game locations.
