Welcome to the April 2021 round of the Create-a-Card!

... or is it???

This round’s theme is Helioptile. Everyone’s favorite Pokémon is Helioptile! This month, there are no restrictions except that your card must be of everyone’s favorite Pokémon, Helioptile. Don’t forget to let your imagination run wild! Just like a Helioptile.

For this round of the competition, due to the new revamp that’s been in the works for four years but which we’ve conveniently forgotten to make public until now, we’ll be doing away with text-based and image-based entirely. Those categories were so 2011! Now, there’s only one category: awesome-based. These are the cards of the future! Fitting for a Helioptile, eh? :D


Registration

  • To sign up you must reply to the thread below. Make sure to profess your undying love for Helioptile!
    --
  • You may register with a partner and work together on the same card. This way each member can use their different talents and combine their skills, especially if one of you is an artist and the other is a Helioptile. (Feel free to post in the thread that you’re looking for a Helioptile if you want one.)
    --
  • We have no limit on the number of entrants for this round. The more the merrier, where Helioptile is concerned! If you’ve never done an awesome-based card before, you’re not alone. We’re fascinated to see what you come up with!


Judging

--------
Awesome-Based
--------
  1. Shininess
    Who doesn’t love shiny Pokémon cards? Watch it dazzle like a diamond in the rough! And who needs a playability category? As we all know, shininess is the true measure of power!
    Total: [redacted] points
    ---
  2. Big Numbers
    Did you know that you don’t need to be creative as long as you can do more than 300 damage? It’s true! We have it on good authority from The Pokémon Company themselves! Just slap some big numbers on there and call it a day!
    Total: [redacted] points

  3. Awesome Factor
    Okay but really. It’s gotta be awesome.

Max Points: ???

And that’s the point breakdown for this round’s Create-a-Card! @Jabberwock will be judging awesome-based.

We’re always looking for new Helioptiles judges. Keen to join the team? You can learn how to apply here.


General Rules

  • The card you submit must be of a Pokémon — that is, not a Trainer, Energy, or other type of card. This should be obvious, but we know that otherwise at least one of you would submit a Helioptile Energy. You may not submit a Helioptile Energy.
    --
  • You must include the symbol here on your card (such as the set symbol) or else your entry won’t be accepted. It was designed by the lovely Nekoban Ryo who continuously creates resources for the faking world and is a prominent faker himself. In addition, we do not allow any entries that have been made using automatic, online card generators. Those aren’t sufficiently awesome for our purposes.
    --
  • If you edit your post you’ll incur a deduction of 2 points from your overall score, and posting your entry again on a different post also deducts 2 points. When you submit, make sure you’re done! If you mess up the tags or have a similar coding disaster, tag or PM me to get it fixed. If you forget to credit someone, do so in a new post instead of editing.
    --
  • All CaC entries should not be posted elsewhere in the PokéBeach forums while the current month’s contest is ongoing. If you have a personal thread or gallery where you post your fake card creations, you must wait to post your CaC card there until the contest is complete and full judging results have been posted. This is to ensure that CaC judges can continue to give proper feedback both within the contest and in the forums.
    --
  • Artists/illustrators/Helioptiles are free to post in this thread, letting participants know that they are available.
    --
  • All entries should meet the forum rules. You should always credit the artist, and never use someone else’s art without their permission — that’s art theft.

Deadline: April 1st (Today) 11:59 pm PST
Here’s a deadline countdown for convenience: [link]​
