FAQ On occasion, I may clear responses so this page doesn't get too bogged down and long. I won't clear them for a few weeks at least though, so no worries of me deleting questions before you see the answer.

Otherwise, ask away!

The prologue will be posted once I get that all done and set. There won't be chances for input for this, it's just a way to introduce everything and put us all on the same page. After that the real fun begins! Done!

Also, survey for main character's names! This will run until their names are stated/spoken in comic.

Done!

How to Participate

You can submit a command for our main characters or submit suggestions for the NPC Pokemon in the world or personalities for Legendary Pokemon. Check the FAQ page if you have any questions!

"only want to reading"? Also I take it that Simisear and Wingull won the main character polls? If they did, have you decided on names for them yet?

@PJSam: This is what happens when I change the phrasing of something a billion times, fixed!

Yep, Pansear and Wingull won (in a tie actually! Good thing I needed two). No names yet. When I get the prologue up I'll post yet another poll with options for their names.

@PJSam: Very quickly changed my answer about the post date of that naming poll. No reason not to start it now! I updated the author's comment with a link to that.

Bizarre @Pokemontrainergigi: It's a bit creepy that one of the name choices was Max(cine) while I am literally at this second watching a lets play of Life is Strange.

@PJSam: That game is actually a partial reason I included the name! Had a masculine form of it suggested ([Max]well) so I changed it to a feminine form because of Max! ;D

Okay, just a weird little question, but how come the Wingull has a purple bowtie here, but a green one on the cover?

... Is that intentional...?

*Edit*

Wait, just read the character page.

Nvm, and sorry!

@GryffindorBuckle: 2nding your question. I didn't even think of that before. I just assume Gigi would completely control our characters with the info given but it would be nice if we can decide on minor things beforehand if possible if nothing else.

@GryffindorBuckle: Sorry for any confusion!

NPCs submitted to the project will be controlled by me as the GM (Game Master). Two reasons I'm not doing submitter's control is 1) cases where I've combined two or more entries and 2) having to wait on the submitter's response to make pages. This also relates to why I asked for brand new characters, since they're part of the project rather than belonging to a specific person.

So when it says one command per update does that mean only one per character or one over all because it continues by saying only one per character and I am slightly confused.

@Flamel: One command per character per update. EX: For page 123 you could submit a command for the Pansear and another for the Wingull, but not two for the Pansear. But once page 124 comes you may submit again.

Will you ever reject an npc suggestion?

@Mudorios: Short answer: I'm going to try my hardest to make that answer no.

Long answer:
If the rules are followed, and the character is a legitimate suggestion, then absolutely, it's accepted. If the rules are broken or the character could not possibly work at all, then I will edit it to work. Example: someone submits a Ho-oh when legendary Pokemon are not allowed, I'll swap the species to a Talonflame or something that works based on the personality or whatnot. Since I also might combine suggestions, if I get a really good personality but (like the Ho-oh example) the appearance doesn't work, and a really good description but the personality doesn't work, if the fusion would be a cool character, I might take it upon myself to combine those two characters.

By "legitimate" character or "not working" character, I mean something like a Mary Sue or a god-modding character would not be allowed. I do not believe someone could create a character so broken there is no way it couldn't be fixed (unless they tried), so I do not believe there is a chance of rejection C:

I should also point out, no one has really fallen into this category. The worst I've gotten (which is hardly worthy of using the word "worst") is just a lot of information that is unlikely to come up in comic and a few minor inconsistencies (which are easily sorted out).

@PJSam: Like all my stuff, whenever I can but always posted at noon EST.

Based on how I have stuff lined up, this should upload next on the 7th if nothing goes wrong. Trying to find a good place to post my current update schedule for all my stuff, since I've got my own personal list to keep me on track (and not forget about something, like my Nuzlocke Chapter Summaries...).

So when we are submitting characters when it says personality does that refer to their nature?
Pokemontrainergigi
December 22nd, 2016, 5:16 pm
Reply
@Flamel: Personality would be any characteristics or qualities that define that character. So qualities like: loyal, bossy, mischievous, shy, stubborn, etc, etc.

What does it mean when it says "radical Pokémon" in the NPC suggestions?

@Flamel: Pokemon that are too far from the norm. This is mostly in reference to appearance (like the example given), eg a blue Pikachu would be considered too radically different.

Big fan! One question... Hey Gigi! Big fan- read completely through all your comics! Didn't know this was made by you until I clicked the first page! I'm really excited to participate in this awesomeness! One question... How often will this be updated?
