Hello! We're going to be starting up yet another pre-evolution, and I'd like to take this one in a bit of a different direction. Syclar, Embirch, and Flarelm are all successful, but I can't help but think that the process for creating them takes an unnecessarily long amount of time to make. Since they're not being implemented on the server, I feel like we have a bit more flexibility in making these. What I'd like to do is make our next pre-evolution, Breezi, live on IRC. You can read all of the information on Breezi here. The reason I think IRC would be a good medium of creation for Breezi is that the Pokemon is pretty much complete. Cartoons! laid out some pretty specific details, so it shouldn't take too long to finalize this stuff. On IRC, we'll finalize Breezi's typing, abilities, stats, movepool, and Pokedex entries. This will all be done through voting that will take place in real time. I'll lead the process, and I'd love to answer any questions that you may have. All of this will occur on Saturday, April 13th. It will likely start around noon (CST), and I predict that it will take around three hours. In a few days, we'll have threads go up for sprites and art submissions, so we'll have time to vote officially on those aspects on the date. You can chat with us by joining #breezi on SynIRC. If you don't use mIRC or some other client, click here to join us through Mibbit. Until then, you're more than welcome to use #breezi to prepare your stat spreads and movepools. This thread is to be used for general discussion of Breezi and questions that you may have about this process. I know this is wildly different from anything we've ever done officially, but I'm quite confident that we'll be able to do this in an efficient and effective way. If it doesn't work out, then we'll go back to using forum threads for future pre-evolutions. Thanks for reading, and I can't wait to create Breezi with you all in two weeks!
