★ 8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EVENT ★ - Toroan Contest

Post: # 15341Post Rosy »

Hello Toro! For our anniversary, we decided that it would be fun to let the community add to our universe a little more! So without further ado, we'd like to introduce the first Toroan Form Contest! This contest will have you create a concept for a Toroan Form that could fit in our universe, and will be reviewed and judged by the GMs to see if they would be brought to life! The criteria that will be judged include (but are not limited to):

★-Design: This isn't an art contest, but we are looking for cool and possible designs!
Design is super important! Will it look cool, or cute? Friendly, or intimidating? How does it fit with the 'theme' of your Toroan Form? We'll take art submissions or mock up textures of the Pokemon for this - but fear not! If you aren't the artsy type, we'll also judge text based descriptions on an equally fair scale. Texture Work is also an important part of this design, as if the texture is awful then it will be very hard for our texture team to work on creating it!

I heavily suggest making sure the Pixelmon Texture is able to properly be painted to your wants.
★-Stats/Moves/Abilities: Is it viable? What kind of battler is it? Tell us!
Your Toroan needs to be balanced! Stat distribution is important, whether it's a fast attacker or a sturdy wall. Abilities and moves are super important as well - bonus points if it fits the 'vibe' of the Pokemon! As a note, Toroans should share the same BST as their original counterparts, so no buffs or nerfs. You can either re-arrange the individual stat values, or re-distribute them entirely to your liking! Likewise, Toroans should have the same amount of moves as their original counterpart, so don't go removing/adding less or extra. Note that these may be subject to change if your Toroan is selected. (Disclaimer: You don't need to make a WHOLE moveset for them - just a few select moves would be good! Though if you wanna, go wild!)
★-Lore/Theme/Aesthetic: Is it unique? How was this variant born?
What's the lore behind this Pokemon? You could mention how it changed into this variant, or maybe some flavor text (such as how Toroan Dratinis eyes never open, or Toroan Eldegoss loves to dance to spread its spicy seeds)!
Your Pokemon should also have a consistent theme to it. Toroan Relicanth, for example, is a cool lava fish that had its first change in forever due to the shifting environment of Garnet Island. Toroan Shiinotic is an icy mushroom that spreads its spores like snowflakes! Don't overthink it, just have fun!
To submit, fill out the form: [HERE]!
Please put all your Toroan Form information on a google doc so we can review everything properly!
I suggest looking at the next post for tips and rules ~Image



You're free to work on this with other people of course, collaborations is how we make Toroan Forms. Just please try to be original in your idea, and not steal. If you use other's art- please credit them, and see if that's allowed.
As a final rule, try to keep your submission and ideas to yourself! We wanna preserve the surprise a bit for the selection if you do win! But ultimately you're free to do as you'd like ♥!

Judging will be done in private, with winners informed in PMs! The prize is your Toroan coming to life of course, in addition you'll get to craft how your Toroan is revealed to the world. All participants will be receiving 50kPix/50BP!
Your submission date will be at the end of this month! ♥

Here is some designing tip on how we do Toroans!:

We like to breath new life into Pokemon that might need more love - like Ledian & Relicanth are great examples of wonderful Pokemon who just didn't get enough appreciation! That leads us into our next sorta design rule - no overly popular pokemon / megas. We're just not dealing with that. Lastly, we try to design our Pokemon around a cool theme that fits a cool lore. It's not centered around op battle viability, or cool typings, it's just,, cool, yeah!

In addition, we try not to give unique abilities/move from other Pokemon onto Toroans - or any weird stuff like making new abilities/moves. As cool as all that sorta stuff is, it's just hard to implement. :3

[HERE] is a google doc that Bedtime/Ikaro made- feel free to copy and use it!
