Team Rocket has been experiencing some cash flow problems of late! It doesn't matter how many Grunts get sent out to beat up the rich trainers on the Sevii Islands, they just cant seem to break even. Leader Giovanni has decided to sell his gym in Viridian City as a means to get some quick cash. Browsing through the GTL you see Viridian Gym up for sale and you snap it up with the last of your hard earned cash. Poor but happy, you are now the proud owner of the eighth gym in the Kanto League ... the trouble is, what do you do next?

 

Explanation:

This creative contest requires you to design your own Pokemon Gym in the Kanto region to replace the current one in Viridian City. You are encouraged to use different creative elements, drawing, mapping, spriting, creative writing, competitive team building.

 

As with the previous creative contests I have hosted, art work does not have to be perfect, it is simply there to give us a visual interpretation of your ideas. For example, rough sketches of a gym leader is better than no visual representation at all, as it helps judges understand what you are trying to portray.

 

Below are the requirements of an entry, ultimately how you decide to present it is down to you but the more effort you put in, the higher your chance is of winning. I wish you the best of luck, have fun and dont hesitate in asking me questions if you have any!

 

Entry Requirements:

  • A Gym LeaderWill you be the new gym leader or will you create a whole new character? Make sure you include important details such as name, age, description. There are many ways you could portray them to the judges; drawing, sprite work, creative writing (a diary entry for example), it's entirely your choice. 
  • Gym TypeAs with all Gyms, there has to be a specific typing theme. (Example; Dark, Psychic, Normal ect).
  • Gym BadgeWhat is the name of your badge and what does it look like?
  • Gym LayoutThis will require some mapping on your part as you will need to show what the inside of your gym looks like. Most gyms have a puzzle to complete to get the the leader, what puzzle will your gym have? Where will the gym trainers be placed, waiting to battle challengers? Those talented with map making and sprite work could even visually represent their gym that way but a hand drawn plan is fine. 
  • Gym Leader's TeamYou will be required to make two teams for the gym leader to use. One will be the team used for first time challengers and the other will be for those brave enough to ask for a rematch after defeating the leader. The first team must have a minimum of 3 Pokemon and a maximum of 5, their levels must be between 42 and 50. The second team must consist of 6 Pokemon at level 100. All Pokemon used by the gym leader must share the same typing as the gym and no legendaries are allowed. Generation 3 Pokemon only with the Physical/Special Split we have in game currently. You should detail moves, natures , held items and EVs for each Pokemon, feel free to explain any strategy behind your team. 
  • Gym Leader ScriptEvery good gym leader needs a sassy catchphrase or two for any potential challengers. Take Blaine for example, who says "Hah! I am Blaine, the red-hot Leader of Cinnabar Gym! My fiery Pokémon are all ready with intense heat! They incinerate all challengers! Hah! You better have Burn Heal!" You will need to come up with 3 phrases; one for the leader to say when a duel starts, one that they will say when defeated and one they will say if they win a battle.
  • Gym TrainersYour gym must have a minimum of 2 trainers placed in your gym. What trainer class are they? What are their names? What are their teams? You only need to outline one team for each trainer, they can have up to 6 Pokemon on their team but their levels must be capped at 45. You dont want them to be stronger than your gym leader!

Rules:

  1. All entries must include your in game name.
  2. All entries must be your own original work, any plagiarised entries will be disqualified.
  3. All entries must meet the requirements of our Code of Conduct.
  4. All entries must be made in this thread.

A lot of questions about the prizes as we get this.. Love it.

 

LF tourney events with these prizes tho :)

[spoiler] cuz I'm bad at writing ;-;[/spoiler]

Of course the quality of an entry has some standing when it comes to judging but I have personally always put more emphasis on those individuals I see have made a lot of effort in their work. If your gym is well thought out, has strategic teams and innovative concepts you stand a great chance of placing in the contest. 

 

 

Hello,

 

I love the prizes. :)

But, Noad, who is rf3U2Mi.png ? (~)

Yes you need to show the inside of your gym as one of the entry requirements. The outside is not a requirement but you are more than welcome to add it into your entry to get brownie points for going the extra mile.

Stupid question (because why not...): Will we have the new gym available to public, a day? Or it's just for fun?

This will just be for fun so let your imagination run wild :)
