Ok, thank you.
The short answer is that "custom type" refers to anything outside the existing 11 TCG types, those being Grass [G], Fire [R], Water [W], Lightning [L], Psychic [P], Fighting [F], Darkness [D], Metal [M], Dragon [N], Fairy [Y], and Colorless [C]. That is, for this month, your card should be one of those 11 types.Question: you've mentioned custom types, does that also include existing Pokemon types that we haven't seen in the TCG yet, like Poison?
Card type; the above is fine. You can re-imagine the in-game types however you like as long as the final card is a TCG type the Pokémon wouldn't normally have.Would I be penalized if I reimagine, say, Kantonian Muk, as Fire/Poison, but submitted a Fire-type card? Do you only care about the card type, or do you want a completely different typing (and sub-typing)?
In general, unless the theme specifically says otherwise, you can submit any type of card you want (except usually trainers and energies, for obvious reasons). And if you want to get spicy, you can even submit combinations of lots of different gimmicks (possibly at the expense of some believability points) like Jabberwock did once upon a time.Is it ok if mine is a Pokemon EX Full Art card?
Yeah, provided it's a believable Pokédex entry, I've got no problem with anyone creating their own. This holds for general months, too; not just the type change theme.What about custom Pokedex entries? My Pokemon has a gimmick that the Pokedex won't shut up about and I'd like to not write about it. Assuming I don't write something dumb like "This Pokemon is known for pwning n00bs" and keep it relatively believable, would using a custom entry hurt my believability score because it's not an official Pokedex entry, or do we kinda get a pass since we're meant to be reimagining them as a new type?
Does this mean you can’t use the official Vaporeon Pokédex entry saying Vaporeon has a cellular structure similar to that of water? Which doesn’t actually HAVE a cellular structure? ‘Cause THAT’S certainly hard to believe.Yeah, provided it's a believable Pokédex entry, I've got no problem with anyone creating their own.
