    The whole Farfetch'd evo is getting play in this thread, because this poll is very boring. You can't argue or discuss a name, you just have to vote. So, in the absence of on-topic discussion, people venture into more interesting stuff -- like a new pokemon creation.

    It's ironic that these new discussions are tending towards bypassing the very polls and discussions that were most interesting in this series. Some of the most "fun" parts of the Syclant creation was the Role, Typing, and Artwork polls. With this Farfetch'd evo, active posters want to eliminate all of those polls (the fun ones) and move directly to movepool and dex entry (the boring ones).

    Yay....

    Hi everybody. This is RockoTheTaco, creator of that fake Farfetch'd evolution (it's name is Brikait'd, which comes from "fabricated", to stay in theme with the original's name). I'm suprised you guys liked it so much. I really appreciate the positive comments!

    Permission granted. :)

    Farfetch'd is the most badass Pokemon there is outside of the Electabuzz evolutionary line. He needs a power boost.

    Looks nice, man! Did it get squished vertically, though? It looks a little short & wide.

    Well, I took the image and shrunk it to fit the 80 x 80 pixel limit.

    Excuse me?

    Fine, I'll start the next poll. It would be a lot easier if some people had paid attention when I asked them to send me their sprites *cough* Doug and Cyzir *cough*, but I guess I'll just have to sift through pages of junk to find them.

    Yeah. I know im getting way too ahead, but that Marowak evo REALLY appeals to me. Maybe we could do something with that later?

    Oh never mind. I never saw this sprite you meant but that is a good concept of him. I also thought of an Absole evo. But I am getting a head of myself.

    I'd be overjoyed if one of my fakemon could be in something like that. Oh, and I feel like posting this:

    EDIT: And here's a drawing I did of a fakemon that MiyamotoMushashi came up with:

    That sprite is so freaking amazing. It works hand in hand with the Farfetch'd evo. Tag team swordsman.

    Edit: Rocko, if every loves your sprites, and we all decide on sets, then all we need is Nintendo's/Shoddy's and the upcoming Competitor to make it real. And with the way the sprites look, i can't see anyone deneing them! ;)

    I know, when an Deviant Artist, Smogon, Nintendo, and shoddy combine it is going to be some awsome shit.

    Some people feel that Nintendo is going to accept fanmade Pokemon, even though it's a very very long shot since legal liability issues for Nintendo are huge (not to mention if they took all the entries floating around on the internet the company would spend years sorting through all of them).

    It's nice to dream though.

    I think a Marowak Evo should be dark/ground, he's pretty emo afterall.

    Although if we were to follow that route, we'd have to make it a Cubone alternate evo. Something along the lines of Cubone getting so depressed it starts to fill the void with anger or something.

    Wow, what happened in this thread? I thought this whole idea was going to be "Smogon Community Creates a Pokemon," and then the second poll would be a little shorter once we had the process down and everything, but I skipped this thread for a few hours and we have ideas for the next two pokemon and people talking about them like it's already decided?

    Sorry, but I really can't consider a Farfetch'd evo or a Marowak evo anywhere near as Smogon-esque as "Syclant" (I guess we can call him that now?) They've just been made-up in 6 pages of this thread, whereas Syclant has been in the process of creation for weeks.

    Point being, it seems like this has all gotten way out of hand way too fast. Nintendo might accept a Smogon pokemon...with a lot of convincing and quality. Sending it in with "LOL FARFETCH'D SUX IT NEEDS EVO LOOK" takes away from the value of this project, in my opinion.

    Thank you, but Smogon isn't accepting it as a picture. Can someone make it into an Avatar size?
