The Library

The Writing room and its subroom have gone through a revamp, and would all like to welcome you in the new improved The Library room. This new room focuses on anything that takes place in a library, including reading, writing and research. We encourage all bookworms to take a gander.

A new room needs a new mascot, and for this the room is hosting a Mascot Design Contest. Prizes include competitive shiny Pokémon for all participants, as well as a custom avatar for the winner!
