About the site.
Shuriken is a shrine and fanlisting dedicated to the Pokémon Greninja from the video game series Pokémon. The shrine was created as part of the Amassment Creature Feature Challenge which ran from January 2014 to June 2014. The shrine was opened on February 12, 2014 and the fanlisting was opened on February 24, 2014.
The idea for wanting to create a shrine to Greninja happened at some point during my playthrough of Pokémon X. Though was planning to work on another Pokémon shrine at the time, it was still something I knew I wanted to do at some point. When the opportunity presented itself I got myself started. Because the layout didn't want to work out for me I decided to do something a little different from what I usually did and started on the content first. That way there I wouldn't have to spend a bunch of time trying to get a layout that worked perfectly for me while making zero progress on the shrine itself. Because of this method I was able to get the shrine finished. Yay!
The name was a bit tough to figure out. I was originally gonna call it Ninjafrog because I couldn't think of anything cooler, but my friend Cherri came up with a couple ideas and the popular choice was "Shuriken", because, as Samantha put it, it is badass like Greninja. I have to say I am inclined to agree so I've gone with it.
Currently we are on version 1 of the site which was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand using Notepad. The image used in the layout was found at The Pokémon Wiki. The fonts used are called Minion and were default with my computer. Most of the patterns used were made by me, but some were also found at Subtle Patterns. Credit goes to Bulbapedia, Serebii.net, and The Pokémon Wiki for some information used on this site. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
