The Create-A-Pokémon project has just begun making a new Pokémon in the CAP forums!
The local phenomena known as the Create-A-Pokémon Project labors to construct an entirely new Pokémon for competitive battling on our simulator: Pokemon Showdown!. Throughout the next several weeks, we'll have intense discussions, heaps of user-created submissions, and votes from hundreds of Pokemon battlers across the globe. In order to function, CAP requires the talents of many individuals, including artists, writers, and most importantly: competitive battlers. Over the next several weeks, we'll be voting as a community on the typing, stats, ability, movepool, art design, sprites, and name of our very own Pokémon.
This will be our fifth CAP for the fifth generation of competitive battling. As is customary, our Pokémon is being created for Smogon's Overused tier, which includes the new ban on Tornadus-T. This time around, the CAP 5 process is being led by long time CAP veteran jas61292. Thanks to some recent changes in CAP Policy, he will be accompanied by four other CAP leaders to help manage the enormous task of creating a Pokémon. As the sixth generation approaches, we as a CAP community will be working hard to pump out a few more creations before October hits. Remember, CAP is a public project, so why not make an account on our forums and start voting now? It's a choice I'm sure you won't regret!
