For this contest, choose an Evolution line that existed in R/B/Y, other than the Eevee line. A line consisting of just one Pokemon is fine. If any Pokemon were added to that line in later games, do not include them. Make one card for each Pokemon in the line. Contest tentatively scheduled to end on 9/12. I will grade on the rubric below. To make judging easier, give the information in the same order as the rubric, and keep each category separate from the others (don't put the explanations next to the matching parts in the card text, for example). Name: 3 points. You can get points off for misspelling the Pokemon's name or forgetting to capitalize. To make judging a little easier, no prefixes please(Dark, Light, etc.). Picture: 3 points. Your score will be based on how vivid and appropriate your description is. Type: 5 points. For single types, this a piece of cake. For dual-types, choose an appropriate type. Points off for incorrect types or types that don't correspond well to the card's abilities. HP: 5 points. Points off if HP is too high or too low, based on a combination of the HP of past cards for the Pokemon and the created card's abilities. Weakness/Resistance: 5 points. Points off if they don't make sense for this Pokemon. Retreat Cost: 5 points. Points off if it is too high or too low, based on past cards for the Pokemon and the created card's abilities. Pokemon Power/Attacks: 30 points. Your card may have: - 1 attack only, OR - A Pokemon Power only, OR - A Pokemon Power and an attack, OR - 2 attacks. Cards that do not meet this requirement will be disqualified. If you have a Power and an attack or two attacks, each will be worth half of the category's points. You can lose points for any of the following: - Spelling errors - Capitalization errors - Punctuation errors - Wording mistakes or vague wording - Improper costing (I'll try not to be too strict on this one) - Illegal game mechanics - Overpowered abilities - Overly complicated abilities Rarity: 3 points. Choose from the following: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Rare-Holo. Points off if the rarity doesn't match the relative strength of the card. Explanations: 8 points. Explain the reasons for your specific choices of Weakness, Resistance, Retreat Cost and HP. 2 points each. 2 points off for no explanation, 1 point off for an incomplete, uninformative, and/or sloppy (i.e "It's just like other cards for this Pokemon.") explanation. You may use that as a reason, but also explain why you specifically chose the card you did as the template for these stats. Remember that there have been at least two different cards made for each Pokemon eligible for this contest. Strategy: 8 points. Explain what kind of deck strategy the card would do best with (not just type) AND what real cards would either make this card more useful or be more useful with this card. If you can't find any combos, you're probably missing something. If there really aren't any good combos, I won't take off points. Points off for missing parts (except as noted), overlooking obvious combos (especially if you didn't put any) or an obvious general lack of effort. Total possible score: 75 points. Good luck, everyone!
