Not done with these pesky process threads yet! ------- [title] Pokedex Entry Submissions [page] <ol class="toc"> <li><a href="#intro">Introduction</a></li> <li><a href="#misc">Miscellaneous Flavor</a></li> <li><a href="#dex">Pokedex Entry Submissions</a></li> <li><a href="#example">Example Submission: Serperior</a></li> </ol> <h2><a name="intro">Introduction</a></h2> <p>Once the competitive portions of the CAP are completed, some would say that's where the CAP ends. Sure, there's still playtesting, but from a process perspective, once the sprites are done, what else is there? Well, everyone likes talking about flavor, and after all, we are creating a Pokemon here. There are all sorts of miscellaneous bits of flavor to sort out that real Pokemon have. Most of these are not put to the community vote, as they are too unimportant as details to merit twenty four hours or more of our precious lives each, but there is one item on the agenda that is - the Pokedex Entry (or just Dex) Submissions.</p> <h2><a name="misc">Miscellaneous Flavor</a></h2> <p>The Topic Leader reserves the right to make an executive decision concerning the following elements of a given CAP's general flavor:</p> <ul> <li>Height</li> <li>Weight (including damage dealt by Low Kick / Grass Knot)</li> <li>Gender Ratio</li> <li>Designation of Hidden Ability (ie. which ability is obtained in the Dream World)</li> </ul> <p>Bear in mind that the Topic Leader can also call a vote on any of these issues if they deem it necessary, or are unable to decide. Any other elements of miscellaneous flavor, such as Exp. Growth, EV yield, and Egg steps, which do not necessarily have any bearing on the Pokemon's use competitively or are simply too obscure to matter, are generally not included.</p> <h2><a name="dex">Pokedex Entry Submissions</a></h2> <p>The CAP community is allowed to submit Pokedex Entries, which will be slated by the Topic Leader based on individual merit and voted on by the CAP community. All submissions include two parts - a species name (eg. Garchomp: The Mach Pokemon) and a Pokedex Submission. The user in question may, however, elect to exclude a species name if they wish, though it is strongly encouraged that they submit one.</p> <p>The following rules must be adhered to by all submissions:</p> <ul> <li><strong>Pokedex entries are 1-3 short, simple sentences.</strong></li> <li><strong>Pokedex entries must be submitted as a Final Submission to be considered in the poll.</strong> You should make this absolutely clear so that the Topic Leader knows that it is your Final Submission.</li> <li><strong>Provide a Pokedex entry for Pokemon Black, Pokemon White, and a combined entry for Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2.</strong> This means that you need to submit three Pokedex entries, not just one. Usually, the Black and White entries complement the ideas of the other, but address different sides of the same coin, while the combined third entry combines the two ideas in some fashion. Check some in-game BW Pokedex entries for examples.</li> <li><strong>You may ask for advice, but bumping of any kind is not allowed.</strong> If people don't comment on your Pokedex entry, let the silence be your advice. You can revise it and repost it, but please don't ask for help in the thread. <li><strong>Keep entries in good taste.</strong> If it happens on Animal Planet or in National Geographic it's fair game, but gratuitously violent or excessively disgusting entries will be warned and deleted.</li> <li><strong>One submission per user.</strong></li> </ul> <h2><a name="example">Example Submission: Serperior</a></h2> <p><blockquote><em> <p><strong>Serperior</strong>, the <strong>Regal</strong> Pokemon</p> <p><strong>Black:</strong> It can stop its opponents' movements with just a glare. It takes in solar energy and boosts it internally.</p> <p><strong>White:</strong> They raise their heads to intimidate opponents, but only give it their all when fighting a powerful opponent.</p> <p><strong>Black 2 / White 2:</strong> It only gives its all fighting against strong opponents who are not fazed by the glare from Serperior's noble eyes.</p> </em></blockquote></p> ------- Will do Pre-Evolution Poll as soon as this thread is resolved. Cheerio.
