Mos-Quitoxe confidently approached Art Poll 2, daring him to attack. Realizing he was completely screwed, Art Poll 2 fled across the sea into a nearby mountain range. Mos-Quitoxe yelled at Quanyails for a Full Restore and gave chase. "Mos-Quitoxe is a genius," Birkal explained to the bewildered paintseagull and Quanyails, the only others who hadn't left. "He was weakened by Art Poll 1 and Art Poll 2 might have been able to take him down if he continued, but Mos-Quitoxe was too convincing. And now, in his effort to surpass Yilx, he has risen to a new plateau. It's RADICAL, just amazing." "Do you think Mos-Quitoxe is even stronger than Yilx now?" paintseagull asked. Birkal replied, "Yes, it's a possibility. One of many that may be played out in the spriting stage!" --- Uh, yeah, CAP 2 pre-evo's spriting stage! The sprite that gets picked here is what will possibly represent this Pokémon on simulators such as Pokemon Showdown! and Theorymon's Pokemon Online server. There are nine rules to keep track of in this stage, but it shouldn't be much worse than the art threads as long as you don't do fusions and such. CAP 2's final product can be found here. There will be a warning before the thread closes. What I'm considering at the moment is to close this after the dex entries, rather than after the movepool entries like with Scratchet. Pre-evo so far: Typing: Grass / Ghost Abilities: Anticipation / (Telepathy) Base stats: 49 HP / 55 Atk / 60 Def / 50 SpA / 75 SpD / 51 Spe --- Them thar rules Sprites should be inspired by the winning design from the Art Poll. It does not need to be an exact rendition of every detail of the design; "artistic license" is granted to all spriters. However, drastic deviation from the selected art design is discouraged. All sprites (front and back) can have a maximum size of 96x96. All sprites (front and back) must have a complete, unbroken, distinguishable outline. It does not need to be a black outline, but it must be clearly distinguishable from the adjacent interior colors of the sprite. No action effects, move effects, environment effects or additional objects can be rendered on or around the pokemon. Sprites must be in PNG format. Use 8-bit truecolor (aka 8-bit RGB) or less. This does NOT mean 256 color mode. Use transparent backgrounds. Fusions of other sprites are not allowed. All sprites must be scratch sprites. Do not alter, fuse, recolor or otherwise modify another spriter's submission – unless the original artist explicitly gives permission. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in the submission being disqualified and the post will be deleted. Sprite submissions for the sprite poll will be selected by the Topic Leader, based on preference and feedback in this thread. There is no process for overturning the Topic Leader's decision. If you are not comfortable with this stipulation, then do not make a sprite submission. Do not post any complaints here or in later threads. Additional information There are 4 possible sprites: Front Normal Female Front Shiny Female Back Normal Female Back Shiny Female In most cases, spriters submit a Front Normal sprite first. Once feedback comes in and the poll nears, they make the other sprites. Animations are not required and will not be used as part of the final product; however, it does add to the "appeal" aspect of your submission. Shinies are just recolors, so that’s not too tough. There’s lots of people that can’t scratch, that are willing to recolor your shiny, if you really don’t want to do it yourself. Just ask in the submission thread and you’ll get plenty of offers to help. Please look at your transparent sprites against different colored backgrounds, not just white. In Pokemon Showdown!, the sprite will be displayed in a dynamic battle background that changes due to field effects. --- "I didn't want to do this, but I'll have to unleash the Sprite Polls..."
