  • I'm not sure if its something that would fall under the rules, but I thought it would be a good idea to ask. I'm making an RP of a region filled with solely fakemon. So, I was wondering if it would be ok if I write in an encounter with the fake legendary. Like I say, I'm not sure if its something that falls under the rules, but thanks anyway.

    It is something that falls under the rules, actually. See the section about "Fan-Made Pokémon, Crossbreeds, Pokémon with Unique Qualities, etc."

    Essentially, fanmade legendaries are to be treated exactly like regular legendaries, only you'd have to explain the creature, its lore etc and not just the reason for the encounter when requesting permission.
    I have a question about the creative corner, what are the rules on making educational written works? Because i'm planning to make one about mental and physical abuse but i don't want to do it unless i ask if it's okay first. I can send it in a PM if you want to know what it's about first
    Hey, I'd like to apologise about my PRP - 'A Journey Throughout!'. I did read the rules, I guess I might've just misinterpreted what some things meant. I figured that if the RP was for just myself, my friends, and friends of friends, that I wouldn't need to ask an Administrator for permission to have things like Battle Bond, or Mega Evolution.
    I couldn't pm you so I figured I'd ask you here. In regards to the warning. I did see the rules in regards to image usage. It didn't seem to prohibit the use of images for example use. The rules in picture usage seemed to focus around character OCs. I posted that picture of Todd Snap so the people there would know who I was referencing to.

    You've also posted a random Noibat with an apple in an post before that, and generally seemed to be spamming anime screencaps.

    Both of these images were not your work and were not made for you. Note that our RP forum rules also specifically state the following:
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    "If a character, location or concept is inspired by or intentionally resembles something from another setting, do not post images of the source of inspiration directly - instead, state the source of the inspiration so others may look it up, or provide a link. This also applies for use of canon characters, items or settings in crossover RPs."

    So you could have, for instance, linked a Bulbapedia article or something instead of a Huge Bloody Image that serves absolutely no purpose.

    Hey there, two very unrelated questions; are you allowed to kick people from your RP, and two, can you upload minecraft builds to the creative corner as long as you made them?
    What is it with particular idiot children and running face-first into the pointiest brick wall they can find?
    Apologies, but in the academy rp discussion I had conformation I was accepted in the RP which I posted after the conformation. So I do not know if they deleted their post or not.
    This question may sound off a bit, but...how are you feeling? And are in quarantine?

    I'm perfectly fine so far. At this point I'm pretty sure the entire world's health authorities issued mandatory self-isolation/social distancing guidelines and where I live is no different - but seeing as I already work from home and don't really go out all that often it hasn't really affected my life as much as it could have. XD

    As concerned as I can see, all the streets and cities have become empty for a long time.
    Is something like a Pokémon lab rp (with powers/appearance changes) aloud? Two powers max, right?
    HeyItsPip
    HeyItsPip
    I was meaning if something like powers with the only explanation being genetic manipulation is aloud
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    What kind of powers? In what context? What are you even aiming at?

    Also, the word you're looking for is allowed. Allowed =/= Aloud. Aloud means 'out loud'. Allowed means 'permitted'. Just for the record.

    I have been in RPs where humans get turned into Pokemon and there are more where, in General RP, the characters get experimented on and whatnot.

    It's up to the RP creator what additional limitations they want to add. If it's in Pokemon, your character can't be on par with or be a Legendary or a Mega Pokemon. In any RP, your powers can't godmode or auto anyone's characters.

    That's what I usually see though.
    Hey there. A creative Corner question. Are GIFs allowed (Like GIFs you made) in the Creative Corner?
    Hey, I was looking through the rules, and realized this never really was specified: Is it considered autoing if you make a move that never misses, (Like Aura Sphere or Shadow Punch), automatically hit?
    What do you think of kartana and mismagius? Kartana is the same type as your profile, yet ferrothorn is too, and you look like a witch, and mismagius also does. I know these are pretty random questions, I feel there’s a good bond between you and those Pokémon.
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    Neither of them are what you'd call absolute favourites, but I am rather fond of both of them - 'Magius is fun to write and Kartana is kind of adorable in an alien origami samurai sort of way - and is definitely closer to what I'd really want from a Grass/Steel 'mon than Ferrothorn is.

    Oh, okay.
    Hello, me again, your least favorite person on this website! Anyway, quick question, is it against the rules to have a character in a non-pokemon based Roleplay, (But the characters are based off of Pokémon, mine’s Gengar.) to be capable of something similar, but not exactly the same, to mega evolution?
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    I mean if it's not actually a Gengar but something based on one, in a setting that isn't Pokemon... there shouldn't really be a problem. provided the transformation isn't a gateway for godmoding shenanigans, of course.

    Alright, thanks.
    are gif files able to be set as profile pictures ? it works when i upload it, i mean does it work but like it doesn't move the picture like it should :p
    Would it be ok if I were to restart an on going rp if I am not happy with the way it has turned out? Obviously I would let all participants know. Thanks in advance.

    RPs are a collaborative work by definition, and as any GM of any tabletop adventure will tell you, sometimes they will end up getting derailed, in which case the appropriate response is not to throw the toys out the pram and reboot (unless there's really no way to put it back on course).

    Alright, thanks for getting back to me!
    Is there an issue having multiple G-Max Pokemon (of course, keeping to the rule of only one Dynamaxing/Gigantamaxing per battle)?
    Hey, Can you put pictures/Trainer cards into written works? I just want to know before I risk it.
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    Written works are not meant as containers for images and images should not be put in written works. Trainer cards are not allowed on the Creative Corner unless you made them 100% from scratch using your own assets - our trainer card maker is a generator and we do not allow works made with such on the Corner. ^^

    Hi StellarWind. I was just wondering about how to write accents or some specific words that aren't in English for dialogue purposes? Like in accents mainly, how far can you go? I tried to search for an answer in the rules, but I couldn't find anything
    Hello, it's me. The newcomer on the block. Anyways regarding on the rules I've read through, May I request a Legendary Pokemon?
    Ahh, more questions. XD I know that having a trainer that beats a league with less than 6 Pokemon is bonkers as it is, is it against the rules? I know some of us try for realism, but I was just wondering if having a character that beat a League with less than 6 (maybe less than 4) is something that needs to be reported on.
    Hey, sorry to bother you, but I was wondering... can you post pictures taken with Pokemon Go AR on the Creative Corner? (As long as you took the picture?)
    RenzFlintrock
    RenzFlintrock
    I mean, I know official Pokemon Sprites are allowed, and I know Photography is allowed, but I just wanted to clarify if PoGo's AR is within the rules.
    Hello! Thanks for helping admin my rp Into the Pokeverse. Is it possible to get rid of the warning message in the middle of the story now that the offender has edited their writing style? If not that's fine, I was just wondering!
    When I'm writing really long or heavily formatted posts, they sometimes come out in a weird, formal-looking font. I can fix it by selecting all and hitting the "Clear formatting" button, but then I have to go back and re-italicize emphasized words. Any way I can prevent it completely?
    Hey there, just wanted to let you know that the "I'm Super Human" thread by @Barefoot_Kittens you moved to the General RP Discussion board is supposed to be the RP thread. They mentioned they didn't have time to write up an opener and gave us an explanation of what to do with out characters in the RP thread.
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    StellarWind Elsydeon
    They're more than welcome to start the proper RP thread when they actually have in-character content to start it with, and link it to the discussion thread. As it stands, this is not an RP thread and not a valid start to one.

    Alrighty, thanks for the information, just wanted to let you know.
    Stellar sir I have a problem, Mango has decided to kick me out of the One Piece RP because of a dispute we had about my activity and he decided it without even consulting the rest of the group first.
    Hello! I just had a question regarding the Creative Corner and what's allowed to be posted there. If I had a non-drawing art/craft, say, a cross stitch project made completely by me, would I be allowed to take a picture and upload it to the Corner? Or is the Corner restricted solely to drawings/paintings/paper art of that sort? I just wanted to make sure before I do anything.
    So if a character, namely a Pokemon, kills someone important, like a gym leader, what do you think the police would do about it? The Pokemon has left the scene of the crime and is now in the middle of a Route taking shelter at a mansion.
    Hi! I noticed that on the 'Legendaries that can't be bonded with or caught' list, I saw the Cosmog line. While I don't intend to make a character that bonds with any of them, I was just wondering why that was, as it happened in the anime. Is there some special lore thing or are the final evos just too powerful? Thanks in advance
    StellarWind Elsydeon

    It's a mix of their power level and their potential for abuse re: exodimensional travel and introduction of undue amounts of Ultra Beasts.
    StellarWind Elsydeon

    Also take into account that the anime tends to go hog-wild with legendary encounters because Ash Has Magical Anime Protagonist Powers (and the S/M anime just made the whole thing meaningless as a whole because practically everybody got one). This is not the case with the RP forums. ^^

    I see. Thank you and sorry to bother you.
    I noticed a post you made in the fiction convergence RolePlay where you said YouTube videos didn't belong in RP posts themselves. However, I can see the relevance of YouTube videos in some cases. I, for example, am fond of adding accompanying music to my post particularly if my character is in a situation where they're performing a song.
