Journal Entry: Sun Mar 12, 2017, 6:15 AM

Q: What are the rules on joining the group?
A: Joining the group is as simple as hitting the button! Same goes for the side competition that we’ll be implementing this time around!

Q: What about the main competition for Y2?
A: We will be releasing new application templates to be filled out when we announce the opening!

Q: What happened to the rest of the journals?
A: We’ve removed them and have taken screenshots of the advice in the comments in order to rework everything! This will be happening over the next couple of days!

A: Still most visual media! This includes flash comics, comics, and splash images!

Q: How many characters can we have?
A: One for the main OR side competition along with up to 2 NPCs.

Q: What are the limitations on psychics and the likes?
A: Small amounts of Telekinesis like the characters you see in the games. No additional powers.

Q: What are the character creation requirements?
A: We’ll have a journal for that!

Q: What Pokemon are we allowed to use?

This legendaries are as follows: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Dialga, Palkia, Heatran, Regigigas, Giratina, Cresselia, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Landorus, Kyurem, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde, Diancie, Hoopa, Volcanion, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Solgaleo, Lunala, The Ultra Beasts, Necrozma, Magearna, and Marshadow.

Q: What about Shiny/Off-Color Pokemon?

Q: What moves can our pokemon learn?
A: Anything they can learn legitimately in the games.

Q: How are we going about Megas this time around?
A: They will be allowed after Round 1!

Q: Can we have more than one of the same Pokemon?
A: Yes!

Q: Where does Apollo Y2 fall on the timeline?
    xx14 - xx15 - Apollo
    xx17 - xx18 - Apollo Y2

    (Out of respect we have left off the other octs we had on here. You can refer to their timelines.)

Q: Can trainers and pokemon talk to each other?
A: That’s up to you. If you would like that in your entries that’s fine, but keep everyone else’s characters in-character.

Q: How do entry submissions work?
A: Within each round folder, we’d like you to submit your first page and have each page linked to the next for ease of access. We don’t want to clutter the gallery if lots of submissions happen at once.'

Q: Will Z-Rings be allowed now that Sun/Moon are out?
A: No, actually. With the sheer power of Z-Moves and the fact that we'd like to prevent the overuse or misuse of the moves, we're going to bar the use of these nifty little rings. Plus we already are allowing mega evolution.

Note: As we expand on the necessary journals, a lot of information will be added to this FAQ.

can a person team up with another artist with one being a writer and the other doing the comic?

Sorry for the long wait.

According to our founder, since this is usually one trainer per contestant, team ups are unfortunately not possible. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

At the moment we're actually looking for admins while I scrounge up the money to put up a new super status on the group to go with the arrival of the new information and apps, so if you know anyone willing to help out since we're down to 2 judges at the moment, it would be appreciated!
TheBookwormMaddy Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2017  Student Digital Artist
I could make a journal asking around? I wouldn't mind being a judge but I've only done one of these (this one) so I'm probably not the best candidate haha

Hi! Checking in from the-OCT-list, could someone let me know if this group is still active? Thanks!

It most certainly is! Y2 is in the works and will be rolling around eventually, we'll keep you posted.
