How do I post artwork? I wanna make a design for CAP19 when the time is right so I need to learn how. (If this sounds stupid, I dunno, I REALLY suck at IT skills.)
You can upload the image you've created to an image hosting site like Imgur, right-click the picture after it has uploaded, copy it, and paste it right into the post. It's a WYSIWYG editor, so no need to know BBCode :)How do I post artwork? I wanna make a design for CAP19 when the time is right so I need to learn how.

Hey Saboros, that's not how CAP works. However, there are custom Pokemon Showdown clients that allow you to code and use your own Pokémon. Search "Dr. Fuji Labs" for one of the best examples. If you get permission from Zarel or somebody, you can program in your Pokémon to use on your own client. A better place for this question would be for someone who leads the Other Metagames section.Might be a kind of strange question, but here goes. Let's say I've create 150 custom pokemon and I wanted to make a ladder where people could only battle with those 150. Is this possible with Pokemon Showdown? If not, what could I do?
Its a community project. Fans don't create them by them self and neither do staff. Check out the CAP process archive to see how its done.So, you're saying that fans can't create Pokémon? Only Staff? This is dumb. What's the point of making forums about it, then? Why even make CAP Pokémon?
No. Pokemon are made by the community as a whole. Everyone can contribute, but no one creates their own individually. Additionally, this is a competitive project, so the goal is to learn about the competitive game, not to simply make Pokemon. I suggest you check out the Newcomer Guide if you have more questions.So, you're saying that fans can't create Pokémon? Only Staff? This is dumb. What's the point of making forums about it, then?

The current CAP Metagame is severely underplayed, so I don't see them adding another CAP tier that'll just be ignored.Is there going to be a doubles CAP tier on showdown. I love some of the CAPs, but doubles would make it quite amazing. There has been a lot more doubles taking place after the VGC worlds 13 and 14. I would love to use some stuff like tomohawk in a doubles environment.
Fairly sure the answer here is no. Essentially, CAP tries to make a Pokemon that could be introduced in the current generation based on what Game Freak has made available (this is the same reason why, even though egg move illegalities existed in previous generations, they're no longer legal for new CAPs). Although it wasn't that way to start with, CAP policy has basically crystalised into "if we can't achieve the concept while using only the tools Game Freak has given us, we've picked a bad concept".In the ability thread, are we allowed to suggest one of the already made custom abilities? Same goes for moves in the movepool thread. (Please don't give me an answer of, "Your are not allowed to create custom moves/abilities, I already know that, I am just curious about the ones that have already been made in the past)
Unfortunately, the only place where you can find the concepts of each CAP is in the process archive. Or in the case of Volkraken and Plasmanta, just scroll down.Is there a place where the concept for each CAP is located, or do I just have to go through the process archive. I have a couple of concept ideas for the next CAP but want to make sure they haven't already been used.
In the past it was, but nowadays the vast majority of the cap community is against revising old caps, so much infact that we undid almost every revision to caps previously done. So its not possible and likely wont be for a long timeHas there ever been or is it possible for there to come a point, under the current policies, for a CAP to be changed after finding it to be inadequate at fulfilling it's concept in a playtest?
