    Official Rules for Competitive Discussions

    Post by Artist Smeargle on Fri Sep 09, 2011 1:36 am

    Alright. With the opening of two Competitive [Pokeymanz] Discussions, rules have to be established.

    ---
    1. Add Base Stats. Max and Min are required.
    ---
    2. Add an image at the top when you *announce* your Pokemon. It just makes it look nice and not like just a bunch of words. Use (img) and the URL and then (/img). ['s and ]'s instead of ('s and )'s.

    EDIT: A sprite must be used!
    ---
    3. Add a list of moves, and list how the Pokemon can acquire each move. A simple [method]: [move] format is preferred. Failure to do so will render your thread locked until you PM me the move list.
    ---
    4. Add ability and its effect in a battle.
    ---
    5. If a Work-in-Progress, say so at the top or bottom. If it's only one category, you may just put the message there.
    ---
    6. If you happen to hate the Pokemon, just review it and pretend you like it enough to review it, or rather, be 'polite' when you review it.
    ---
    7. Sets are to be formatted like this:

    Pokemon @ Item
    Ability: [Ability]
    Nature: [Nature]
    IVs: [IVs]
    EVs: [EVs]
    Move 1: [Move]
    Move 2: [Move]
    Move 3: [Move]
    Move 4: [Move]

    You must have at least one good paragraph's worth of commentary if you're posting a set. Failure to do so will result in your post being deleted.

    ---

    Rule #8: Discussion must pertain to released, competitively viable Pokemon only in their respective tiers! Discussions will be subject to review by the moderation team.

    ---
    -(I wrote that!)

    Approved.

    I think the two discussions have been super spaced out. Maybe they can be a little more...cluttered? I dunno'. That's just my suggestion, so carry on.

    I'll get the OPs of the discussions to make their posts more concise and readable.

    Alright, that would probably be helpful. I look forward to seeing these!

    EDIT: Not much left to say here. The official rules are set, so... LOCKED!
