Create-A-Card February 2014 - The Fairytale

Discussion in 'Creative Works' started by Blui, Feb 6, 2014.

    A new month, a new competition! 2014 brings in new judges, a new host and even more challenges for all of you to overcome! This year isn’t just limited to the types we all know and love but themes that will make your head spin! Do you have what it takes to be the best card faker?

    February 2014 gives us a new type in the official TCG, Fairy. These pink beasts are something new that hasn’t been explored all that much at this point but you have the opportunity to make them into something great! Whether it be an interesting attacker, a defensive bench sitter or a one-hit-wonder card it’s up to you! Provided it’s a Fairy-Type everything is a-ok!

    This contest has two sections, Text Based and Image Based. In text based all you have to do is create a card in text form and post it in here! For the Image based half, you’ll need the help of some software to let your creations come to life. But one thing remains important between both of them, it has to be original.

    There are a total of 30 places in this competition, 15 for both sections, and unlike last year, these slots don’t apply for both. Only one. So simply be fast and post down below that you wish to enter, but be fast, these competitions can fill up very quickly! Once you’ve entered you’ll need to create your entry and post it down below, before Wednesday the 26th of February at (UTC+10) 6:00PM. Be careful when posting your entry though, because if you have to edit, or did edit your post you’ll have an instant deduction of 2 points from your overall score, and posting your entry again on a different post also deducts 2 points.

    Another note, for those entering Image Based you will have to include this logo on your card 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 faker himself. Here is an alternate version of the set symbol


    Text Based:

    Creativity: 0-5 points x3
    Is your card a normal card you can find in any booster series or is it very unique?
    Wording: 0-5 points x2
    Did you get the wording on your card right?
    Balance: 0-5 points x2
    Is your card overpowered or is it balanced?
    Context: 0-1 points x2
    Does the card fit into the current metagame? Does it combo with current cards? Or do some current cards make it absolutely broken?
    Format: BW or XY.
    Completeness: 0-1 points x2
    Did you remember to add weakness, resistance, retreat, and all the important information?
    Tie-breaker: 0-1 points
    A tie-breaker point I can use to determine a winner. The card I like most might get it.
    Max BASIC score: 40 points (41 with tie-breaker)

    Image Based:

    This should be a given. With the proper tools, let your imagination run wild! This can involve new gameplay mechanics, blanks, etc.
    Total: 20 points
    Proper wording is also key in designing any fake card. Try to ensure wording is correct for the era of blank you choose; from Classic and Neo to EX, DP, and BW, wording has changed a lot, so be careful! Spelling is also taken into consideration.
    Total: 15 points
    Fonts and Placement
    Correct fonts are imperative when creating realistic fakes. Placement isn't quite as important, so long as the fonts/symbols/etc. are in the correct general area.
    Total: 10 points
    Because this division of the contest is so image-heavy, the believability and playability takes a backseat here. However, it's still worth a portion of the total points, so try to keep it in the realm of believable! Proper type (unless Delta-species), Pokédex information, and ballpark HP will be taken into consideration.
    Total: 5 points
    Max Score: 50 (No tiebreakers for Image)

    So that’s the point breakdown for this month’s Create-A-Card, as you may notice there is some differences but only to cater for the different styles of the entries. Teal will be judging the Text Based portion of the contest and Blui will be judging the Image Based part.

    When making your fakes be sure to follow forum rules, if you are using someone else’s art be sure you have their permission to use it or it is otherwise considered art theft.

    As per usual have fun and be as creative as you can be and show the world that PokeBeach can make fake cards!

    Deadline: February 26th 6:00pm (UTC +10)

    Well, seeing as how this round will probably not stay Fairy, I'll wait to see what I'll be joining.

    I may as well post it, since nobody can stop me, and it might count for something.

    Stage 2 - Florges - HP140 - Fairy
    Evolves from Floette​

    NO.671 Garden Pokémon HT: 3'07" WT: 22.0 lbs.

    [Ability] Symbiosis
    If this Pokémon has a Pokémon Tool attached to it, whenever another of your Pokémon Tools in play is discarded from a Pokémon (unless that Pokémon is Knocked Out), you may move the Pokémon Tool card from this Pokémon and attach it to that Pokémon.

    [Y][C] Wish
    Heal 50 damage from this Pokémon.

    [Y][Y][C] Moonblast 100

    Weakness: Metal (×2) Resistance: Dark (-20) Retreat: ★★​
    In times long past, governors of castles would invite Florges to
    create flower gardens to embellish the castle domains.

    Florges is a Pokémon that has not yet been featured in the TCG, so I thought it deserved some spotlight. It's Hidden Ability, Symbiosis, allows it to move its item to a Pokémon that has consumed theirs. This Ability, is therefore, a great fit with Pokémon Tools. This Florges allows it to move a Tool attached to it to another Pokémon when that Pokémon's Tool is discarded, thus, without Tool Scrapper in the format, Florges/Garbodor would probably be an amazing Deck, as even with Tool Scrapper, Symbiosis will always happen;
    • Opponent plays Tool Scrapper
    • Discards Garbodor's Tool
    • Garbodor's Garbotoxin is no longer active
    • Florges's Symbiosis activates
    • Florges's Tool moves to Garbodor
    • Garbotoxin is now active

    Also, even though they won't net me anything, I have made cards for Floette and Flabébé, because they are only in the Xerneas Half Deck and aren't out here.

    Stage 1 - Floette - HP70 - Fairy
    Evolves from Flabébé​

    NO.670 Single Bloom Pokémon HT: 0'08" WT: 2.0 lbs.

    [Y][C] Magical Leaf 30

    [Y][Y] Petal Dance 60
    This Pokémon is now Confused.

    Weakness: Metal (×2) Resistance: Dark (-20) Retreat: ★​
    It flutters around fields of flowers and cares for flowers that are starting to wilt.
    It draws out the power of flowers to battle.
    Basic - Flabébé - HP40 - Fairy
    NO.669 Single Bloom Pokémon HT: 0'04" WT: 0.2 lbs.

    [Y] Fairy Wind 20

    Weakness: Metal (×2) Resistance: Dark (-20) Retreat: ★​
    When it finds a flower it likes, it dwells on that flower its whole life long.
    It floats in the wind's embrace with an untroubled heart.

    There we go.

    Because it's the only new type...?
  11. Blui lv85 paladin


    Not this month, and there won't be any bonuses if you don't go the shiny route.

    It shouldn't change :p

  13. BlazikenBro Aspiring Trainer


    Magnezone HP 140
    Stage 2
    Evolves from Magneton

    Ability: Magnet Pickup
    Once during your turn (before your attack), if this Pokemon is your Active Pokemon, you may shuffle your hand into your deck.
    If you do, flip 3 coins. For each heads, draw 2 cards.

    (L) (C) Power Crush 50
    If the Defending Pokemon is a Basic Pokemon, this attack's base power is 120 instead of 50.

    weakness resistance
    x2 (FIGHT) (P) -20

    retreat- (C) (C)
  14. Blui lv85 paladin


    You're only allowed to do Fairy type Pokemon, however, I will let you re enter with a Pokemon of the correct type.

    I guess I could give this one a go. In for image-based!

    I'm not sure I'll enjoy creating a card for the recent incredible boring format, but I'll give it a shot. In it to image it.
