      G'day mate, I see that you're the head of the Create-A-Pokemon project. I'm making a Pokemon fan game with Pokemon Essentials and was wondering if I could use the awesome CAP Pokemon as fakemon?

      Cheers :)

      So i see that you are the leader of CAP. I was wondering how I could get involved. I have a lot of ideas for Pokemon that could be created, and I would love to be involved. Any info would be great. Thanks!

        Create-A-Pokemon is a community based project. We start with a basic idea for a Pokemon, called a "Concept" and then build the pokemon in steps from there. We discuss and vote on each step as we go.

        If you want to read more about the process, how to get involved, or CAP in general, try out our Newcomers Guide which can be found here: http://www.smogon.com/cap/articles/newcomers_guide

      DOUG! Help I haven't been here in years and everything is scary now.

        Good to see you back in the old stomping grounds! Yes, Smogon is a much bigger place than it used to be, but at the core of it, same old same old... With the new Sun and Moon games out, CAP is in a bit of a holding pattern, but we'll be ramping up a new project after things settle down. Would love to see you participate when that happens!

        Good to hear the core is still the same. I'd love to say that my artistic endeavors have evolved leaps and bounds, but everything pretty much stopped when I had my son, still I would love to drop in on CaP again when it resumes once again. Sun and Moon currently have a hold on me too lol.

      Hey Doug, is there any reason why we can't reenable Likes on the CAP Metagame Forum? I understand why we don't use it for the normal CAP process, I don't think there are any problems with them for the CAP Metagame Forum.

      Hey Doug, I seen one of your pictures you made and would love to use it for my youtube channel image, and don't want to use it without permission. What do you say? :)
      1. DougJustDoug
        DougJustDoug
        Don't claim credit for the art yourself, don't attempt to sell or distribute the picture, and, if appropriate, give me credit for drawing it. Other than that, go ahead and use it!

      In the Art Submissions, you're using my older versions and not the final designs, which I fixed and finalized. Unless there's another reason why it's illegal, because I can't find anything else that breaks the rules. ^^;
      1. Snobalt
        Snobalt
        I think it's because the smoke effects don't have discernible outlines. If that's the case, either remove the smoke or justify why it's an integral part of the design.

      Hey dude, I just looked back at the anti-hax formula thing , and I wanted to tell you good damn job with that joke.
      1. DougJustDoug
        DougJustDoug
        Thanks for the compliment. That was a really fun prank, and although it was a lot of work for me and others, the payoff was worth it. That April Fools Day was literally the best day ever on Smogon, IMO. Makes me smile just thinking about it...

      Would me adding gen 4 CAP sprites to PS create much of a demand for those metas?

      I might just do this anyways for completions sake.
      1. DougJustDoug
        DougJustDoug
        I don't know if it would create much more demand. I know HealnDeal packaged up the DP CAP sprites for PS (I am assuming you have them) so I think it would be interesting to get them on PS, if possible. If only for completeness sake, like you said.

      I know they're only in the Concept stage of CAP 21, but I have a question:

      Whenever CAP 21's Art Submissions arrive, is it okay to design a "Mega Stone" for the CAP whose design is more than just a palette swap of the glass marbles in XY and ORAS? Just for flavor, of course. If you approve of the idea, I'll surprise you with what I've learned from Smeargle's Studio.

      did you make a New chart for usage rate?

      Hey perhaps this wasn't you but I forgot,

      did you make some DPP style backgrounds at one point? I think it was you but I can't remember for sure!
      1. DougJustDoug
        DougJustDoug
        Yes, I did that for ShoddyBattle or maybe for PokeLab. I don't remember exactly. I then reused some of it for testing out CAP sprite submissions to see how they would look. But I'm not sure where those are now. I looked around a little bit on my hard drive and they are not in the usual places.

        Thanks I do have a good bg up right now, getting all old gen overlays on PS will be very nice to have.

        All I can find are the 23 base DP backgrounds (256x144 png files) that were part of ShoddyBattle in the /resources directory. I can't find the recreations that I did in Photoshop later, that were scalable and all that.
