    This is a small set (45 total cards) based around the legendary birds, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres. Also, while it has influences from the newest Pokémon products (lv x mechanic, DP trainers), it is more of a showcase for many of The Guide's wacky mechanics, including a brand new usage of the experienced mechanic!

    Some guidelines first. Various cards have this [...] text next to them. These are individual, obrigatory characteristics for the card next to it. Rarity is only a fancy embellishment to the set list, ignore it when actually doing the card. Other than Experienced and !!, the mechanics are simple, just search The Guide (or current format cards for the newer stuff, such as Holon's and LV.X) for the descriptor, that should provide you information enough to do the card. Anyone is free to reserve or do a card, but this set may only have 1 copy of each card. Done cards will be bolded, reserved cards will be italicized.

    For the cards that say only "Must be an Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres", be creative! BTW, their title isn't "????", change that to something that has Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres on it. Include extra descriptors/suffixes if you want. Also change the "???" on "???'s Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres" to whatever owner you choose.

    As for Moltres-!!... by now, you must have read The Guide and figured out that "!!" isn't an actual suffix, but instead a common expression for all mechanics that involve a Pokémon that gives 3 or more Prizes once knocked out. So, when you make this card, you must change that "-!!" to an actual mechanic that makes a pokémon give 3 or more prizes. It doesn't need to be one of the currently existing ones (and if anything, it shouldn't be, BT doesn't like people who mess with his mechanics), so what you should do is create the Moltres first, balancing its power with the number of prizes it gives, put two capital letters together to the right of your new Moltres' name, and then call that pair of capital letters a new mechanic that makes the pokémon give the number of prizes you defined for the Moltres.

    Experienced isn't much complicated, really, but newbies may have problems getting it. If this specific post from the guide isn't helping much, try reading the original thread on it and then reading that post on the guide again. For your convenience, the few pokémons that may gain a experienced version already have a ID, so reference that when creating the experienced articuno and moltres.

    Since this is a small set, let's try to focus on creativity and quality! My CaCing skills are very rusty (not that they were any good to begin with), and as my first actual set in a long time, i expect to see some good ideas being posted so the newbies and me get to (re)learn a few things about CaCing.

    Finally, the set list itself!

    Dark Moltres HP70 :fire::dark:

    :ppowr: Damaging Flames
    When your opponent makes Damage to Dark Moltres, you may put 3 Damage Counters on the attacking Pokémon.

    :dark::fire::fire: BlackBurn 50
    The Defending Pokémon is now burned. Put 4 Damage Counters on the Burned pokémon, instead of 2. The Special Condition Burned can't be cured by Evolving, Devolving or retreating.

    Weakness: :water: +20
    Resistance: :fighting: -30
    Retreat Cost: :colorless

    Too broken?

    Blassari: Not sure if it's broken (told ya i was rusty), but i kind of like it. However, Damaging Flames has a weird grammar ("opponent makes Damage", that's as bad as "Absol is now sleeping"), it should read: "If Dark Moltres is damaged by an opponent's attack (even if Dark Moltres is Knocked Out), you may put 3 damage counters on the Attacking Pokémon." I took the correct grammar out of a Carvanha's Rough Skin pkBody, and btw, you should consider changing Damaging Flames into a Poké-Body.

    Also, it has the power of a Stage 1 Pokémon, which would mean that you managed to understand what's the idea with Experienced pokémon, but neither the trait nor any indication it is a Stage 1 pokémon appears on the card... Just put "Stage 1 Pokémon -- Evolves from Moltres (ID: [insert the ID of the moltres you want this card to evolve from here])" somewhere in the card, then put "Trait: Experienced Moltres Pokémon" too. Easy, ain't it?

    turbler: Sorry, the card titles aren't to be changed (except for the ones with ??? on them). Yeah, i know i should have made myself more clear earlier, but whatever. So that trainer is to be named "Três, Dois, Um, e...", and its own text is to reference its own title, not an english translation or an abbreviation like "3, 2, 1, e..."

    Anyway, the card's so weird it probably doesn't even physically fits on a real card. I mean, you're trying to do a Pokémon-XD within a trainer! Creativity is one thing, but i think you're crossing the limits here. If you really want to go on with the idea, then change the card title to what it is supposed to be, drop the perfect paralyzis, improve the grammar (capital letters at the beginning of a sentence are your friends), and then we'll talk.

    Zapdos // HP: 80 // Type: (L)(C)
    Basic Pokémon

    (L) Zapping Touch -- Base Damage: 10 -- If you haven't discarded an Energy card from any of your Pokémons during your last turn, you may discard a basic (L) Energy card from Zapdos. If you do, treat the next coin flip as heads. Flip a coin. If heads, the defending Pokémon is now Paralyzed.
    (L)(C)(C) Electron Flow -- Base Damage: 30 -- You may move any cards attached to Zapdos from it to their owner's hands or discard piles. You may shuffle any cards attached to Zapdos into their owner's decks.

    Weakness: (W) + 30 // Resistance: (G) - 30 // Retreat Cost: None

    Simple but effective. Or is it?
