Emera Variant Spriting Contest


Shhhhh! Did you hear that? Let's see if we can catch it!

There have been several new discoveries in Emera Town (and surroundings), but it seems like some Pokémon migrated and adapted to living here. Remember those weird Shellos and that green Diancie? We're trying to figure out how else the other Pokémon have adapted to the ever changing Emera Town.

We've heard some critters crawling around and saw some recognizable flashes, but we never saw the whole thing.

Maybe you guys have seen them? If you have, please tell us everything you know! What Pokémon came to Emera Town? How did they adapt to the ever changing weather? What else can be found in the environment (water/air/ground/...) that caused Pokémon to change their appearance? Maybe they completely changed typing, like some starters?

So. . . what exactly do you need to do? I pretend to hear you thinking
Create your own Emera sprites!

Reward Time
As with all contests, there's something in it for everyone who joins. If you're one of the winners, not only is your sprite going to be part of a site-wide event distribution, you'll also get a shiny of that sprite as a prize!

If you join, but don't win, as always there'll be a consolation prize as a thank you for joining (:

Sprite Requirements
!! Your sprite must NOT have been published elsewhere, anywhere. Only new and original sprites are allowed !!
Sprite Size: The size of the canvas you use should be 96 x 96 px . The sprite itself doesn't need to be that size, but please fill in the needed space with transparent pixels.

Sprite design: You are free to choose any (non-legendary) Pokémon as a base for your sprite. Whether that Pokémon has an evolution line or not, is also entirely up to you. However, the bigger it is, the more impressive it needs to be, so they're worth being released. But, most importantly, have fun!
We are NOT looking for Event Pokémon. We are looking for Emera variants (like the Galarian, Alolan, Hisuian forms)
DO : ✅✅ - ✅✅ - ✅
DON'T : ❌❌ - ❌❌ - ❌

Obtaining and evolving: You are allowed to suggest a way to obtain* and/or evolve** your Emera Pokémon. This is decided upon separately and will not affect your Emeran Pokémon-submission. It's possible for your Emeran Pokémon to win, but still be obtained/evolved differently.

copyright: The sprite has to be done completely by you. You are not allowed to include (parts of) sprites from other artists, excluding official sprites, which can be used as a base. Previous sprites can also not be submitted. You are NOT allowed to publish your sprite anywhere during the contest and event time.

* example: "Collect 10 Ice Cream Cornets on Rumble Missions"
** example: Fill your Party with the Event Pokémon and 5 other Water Pokémon in order to make it evolve

How to enter
Please use the following form and send it through PM to CatLady. If you post your event in this thread, it will be disqualified.

[b]Event name: [/b]
[b](Optional) Event description: [/b][that little text you can read on the Wondercards]
[b]PokéDex Entries: [/b]
[b]Type(s): [/b]
[b]Event sprites: [/b]
-Egg sprite
-Normal line
-Shiny line
[b](Optional) Evolution method: [/b]
[b](Optional) How to obtain this Event: [/b]


Your entry should look something like this [with your own sprites]

QuoteEmera name: Shellos (North), Gastrodon (North)
(Optional) Event description: "Two new variants of Shellos have just been spotted near Emera Beach!"
PokéDex Entries: Shellos (North): These Shellos have traveled so far north, snow froze onto their bodies permanently.
Gastrodon (North): The permanent snow on their bodies is sometimes used to make snowmen in warmer areas.

Type(s): Shellos (North) : Water/Ice
Gastrodon (North) : Water/Ice
Event sprites:
-Egg sprite

-Normal line

-Shiny line

(Optional) Evolution method: Same as normal Shellos
(Optional) How to obtain this Event: Fish during Icy Weather


The amount of accepted user-made Events depends on the quality & quantity of the submissions. We cannot release 3 huge Event Distributions within one month, but we can obviously publish 3-4 minor Events in a month.
We'll pick the best submissions and create an individual Event Distribution based on the amount of winners.

Please submit your finished sprite(s) through PM only

Deadline
The deadline is March 15th, 23:59
The winners will be chosen by us, the staff, based on quality.

Note: due to Riako wanting to keep the sprites a secret as long as possible, the winners will only be revealed on the day their sprite will be released. This will cause some winners to know they've won earlier than others.
The consolation prize will only be distributed when the last winner is revealed.
If there is a long(er) period between the second-to-last and the last winner prizes may be distributed earlier [and the final winner will be notified by me and sworn to secrecy]

Please keep SPAM posts out of this thread (:

Most important of all, though, I hope you all HAVE FUN~

I still don't quite understand what emera variants mean. Is emera like a different form or something?

Quote from CatLadyWe are looking for Emera variants (like the Galarian, Alolan, Hisuian forms)


Psyduck Selfie is an event. surfer machop is an event.

Diancie (Emera) is an emera variant. Shellos (South) is an emera variant you can get at the lab.

sawsbuck (easter) is an event from easter. Cherose (required) is an event from a valentines event.

Scorfolia is a regional variant only found in emera. Groosea is another regional starter only found in emera. just like the starter end phases from hisui.

@Dark_Fire - As long as you make the sprite, you can use whichever program works best.
Yes, you can have multiple entries.

@Riodise - Let's put it this way, Dalmatians or Australian Shepards don't exist in the pokémon world, so there's no reason for a Pokémon to evolve to resemble those dogs. If your entry is based on real life things, they're events, not variants.

Can we enter more than once?
I can’t choose between two ideas so I might do both if I have the time - no worries if it’s just one sprite line though! :)

How many ideas are we allowed to submit? I am aware only one entry can win if multiple are submitted.

Is there a time limit? I’d really like to join, but I can’t make the sprite now, because I will be on my computer on monday.

Submitted! (I am speed)

Good luck everyone :)

Also quick question:

Will we get confirmation (via PM) when we have submitted our entries and they are accepted? (As in, if the design doesn't comply with what has been stated in the forum post, will you let us know via PM?)

Would a mega evolution count as a variant?
