Alright, so I've been giving this idea a lot of thought lately. A lot of the sites that I've frequented in my life have had variants of this (gameFAQs character battle, Magic's months long card creating), but what they have in common is that regular posters decide on what is created. After realizing that, I figured "Why can't smogon have one of these as well?" Perhaps the reason is that no one has ever done it in a concise and organized matter. There have been several failed attempts in the past, and those usually involved noobs posting how they wanted legal WonderTombs, and doing this when the metagame was still being decided. But now that individual pokemon discussions are winding down and Ubers, OU, and BL have pretty much been decided (as far as I know), i figure it's the perfect time to bust this out. How it will work is this: Every 3-7 days (to be decided after popularity of the program is determined), you will vote on a particular aspect of a pokemon (type, ability, etc.) Those votes will be recorded at the end of the voting period and will be incorporated into future relevant polls When everything has been decided, the resulting pokemon will be poasted. I'm not sure if there's a way to send the product to GameFreak, but if there is, I'm all for doing it These are tentative rules, of course. If anyone wants to offer their assistance to me, as I'm sure this will be somewhat taxing, I'm all for it. However, I don't intend to start this program immediately, as I need to compile any information required in birthing a brand new pokemon. So what I'm asking today is, if such as program is allowed to happen, would you actively partcipate? Active partcipation by smogoners is the only way this is going to happen. If it's too early for something like this to happen, I apologize and invite mods to lock this thread down. But if you do allow it, I'll also need your help in deleting expired polls. Thank you for your consideration.
