Thousand Roads

A Pokémon fansite dedicated to the creative side of the Pokémon fandom, especially fanfiction.


The path to reaching 50,000 words is long and treacherous, but you don't need to go alone! NaNoWriMon love to accompany novelists on their journies, growing with every word put on the page. With enough care, some may evolve or even mega evolve. If you'd like to create one of your own, simply fill out the form below.

Note that in order to make a NaNoWriMon, you will need an account on the official NaNo site and an active novel. If you're able to update your official word count, you're all set! The word count shown on your NaNoWriMon image will update automatically after you change it on the NaNo site, but it can take up to an hour to catch up. NaNoWriMon only work for the November challenge, not for Camp NaNo, Script Frenzy, etc., because those don't use NaNo's word count API.

  • Have a question or having trouble getting the form to work? Try the FAQ.
  • Want to put your NaNoWriMon in your NaNo forum signature? Here's how!



It makes me so happy that you got the Sun and Moon pokemon :)

Glad you like it! I try to keep things current... hoping to be able to add the new UBs this year, although it will depend on how fast their sprites get ripped.



Hey, trying to make a NaNoWriMon this year and it says it's having trouble connecting to the site? My username is ~Éowyn~, perhaps the accent doesn't register properly? shrugs I'd like a (male if possible) Typhlosion nicknamed Buddy. :)


Eowyn Sorry it took so long, I didn't know I got a response!

Hmm, yeah, that's not a problem with the accents. Sometimes NaNo sticks numbers after someone's username for reasons I'm not sure of, and it looks like that's what happened with yours (maybe something to do with old accounts that had the same name?). On the bright side if you enter your username as "eowyn-2744212" the NaNoWriMon form will work fine, but unfortunately I'm still not sure how to make it so that entering your display username will link it to the correct account. =/



i'm trying to get a raichu & at the bottom of the second page, beneath the gender, there's a "form" option what's the difference/does it matter which one i pick ?

The "form" option should be giving you the choice of either regular raichu or Alolan raichu. However, since you don't have any words yet, you'll start with a pichu either way; which one you pick doesn't matter.

I am posting the NanoMon into my signature using the < > button, but it's only showing up as link text :\ does anyone know what's going on?
