5th Gen Create-A-Pokémon 6 Underway

Posted on Jul 27, 2013 10:44AM

The Create-A-Pokémon project has just begun making a new Pokémon in the CAP forums!

This is the latest effort by Smogon's popular Create-A-Pokémon Project, where the community decides every aspect of a completely new competitive Pokémon. 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. When the new Pokémon is finished, it will be used in real battles on Pokemon Showdown! The project involves a varied cross-section of hundreds of Smogon members contributing metagame analysis, writing, art and sprites. The process has just gotten started, so now is the perfect opportunity to get involved.

Read the Newcomers Guide for some introductory information about participating in Create-A-Pokémon, and visit the CAP Forum to join the fun! ~DougJustDoug
