    Didn't the signups for text cap with @Vracken taking the 15th and final spot? I'm not 100%, but I think this is true...

    Could we bump the text spots up to 18?

    Also, here's my entry so I can stop posting for the month.

    Avalugg HP: 100 [W]
    [​IMG]Stage 1: Evolves from Bergmite
    [​IMG]
    NO. 713 Iceberg Pokémon HT: 6'07" WT: 113.3 lbs.

    Poké-BODY: Glacial Flow
    If your opponent's Active Pokémon retreats, you may switch your Active Pokémon with 1 of your Benched Pokémon. When your Active Pokémon retreats, your opponent may switch his or her Active Pokémon with 1 of his or her Benched Pokémon.

    [W][W][C] Ice Age 40
    Discard 2 [W] Energy attached to Avalugg.

    Its ice-covered body is as hard as steel. Its cumbersome frame crushes anything that stands in its way.


    Weakness: [M] +20
    Resistance:
    Retreat: [C] [C] [C] [C]
    So in Canada, there's this City called Alert, Nunavut. Now Alert is really nothing special. But it is the northernmost permanently inhabited settlement in the world, so there's that. It also has a military base there, which is why I picked Avalugg over literally every other more exciting ice type ever. The wording is meant to be DPPt, Luis, so I hope you're prepared :p

    Enjoy.

    @Lord o da rings I assumed so, but I am not sure, which is why I asked if there were slots left

    Sad @thegrovylekid , we'll miss you for another month q.q

    Whew, finally got this done! The Illustration was a pain, and I'm surprised I finished it in time! I'll be away for most of the weekend, so no computer.

    Anyway, I choose...

    Woo! I thought it was a pretty obvious choice, given that this Pokemon looks like a cross between a Lion (our national animal) and a dog, with the flat-face of a Bulldog (our national dog) being a specific feature of note!

    Yeah, I used the same blank as last time, which may loose me points for originality, but next month will be the unveiling of my glorious custom blank I've been working on for months, brace yourselves for that!

    Overall, I'm definitely a lot prouder of this than my entry for last month!

    So I finished my entry, I took awhile, but its finally done!

    Thought/Notes: Because I’m from America, the first Pokemon I thought of was Braviary (Eagle), Bronzong (Liberty Bell), and Victini (Found on the Equivalent of Liberty Island). I went with the latter. “Return to Liberty” is my thoughts of America (Victini) escorting immigrants (Stage1 Pokemon) to America, The Statue of Liberty welcoming them. “Infiltrate” is exactly how it sounds, Infiltrating and attacking the opponent. I didn't even think about obesity until I saw @rainyman123 and @Lord o da rings's entries:), which were awesome.

    Unfortunately, after Vracken's sign up was the last spot available for the text-based portion. You can try your luck at the image-based portion however, if you'd like!

    You shouldn't have to, because me and several others forgot to sign up earlier.

    Yeah, as nice as that is, I wouldn't take your spot. It's my own fault, and besides, it's your first CaC competition!:)

    When an entire country can be generalised into its awful weather, nature needs to take a hint.
    Castform HP 110 Colourless
    Basic Pokémon
    [​IMG]
    Ability: Climate Change
    If this Pokémon has more [W] Energy attached to it than basic [R] Energy, this Pokémon has a weakness to [G]x2 and this Pokémon has a resistance to [W]+20. If this Pokémon has more [R] Energy attached to it than [W] Energy, this Pokémon has a weakness to [W]x2 and this Pokémon has a resistance to [G]+20. If this Pokémon has the same amount of [W] Energy and basic [R] Energy, this ability does nothing.

    [C] Weather Forecast
    Discard an Energy card from your hand. Then, search your deck for an Energy card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward.

    [C][C][C] Meteorology Ball 40+
    This attack's type is the same as every type of Energy card attached to Castform. This attack does 20 more damage for each different type of Energy card attached to this Pokémon.

    Weakness: None
    Resistance: None
    Retreat: 1

    It changes its form depending on the weather. Changes in the temperature or humidity appear to affect its cellular structure.
    NO. 351 Weather Pokémon HT: 1'00" WT: 1.8 lbs
    I. Hate. Wording.

    Can someone give TPCi some English lessons or something? Succinctness is key guys. KEY.

    Haha but really, this was quite fun. :p I've grown quite attached to my little Castform after spending 3 days milling through the TCGDex on pokemon.com to look for cards with appropriate wording. I found a bunch of them, references will be at the bottom, but it was tedious.

    ANYWAY, Castform. Chose it for the UK because our weather is as temperamental as weather can get. I chose the specific dex entry I did because Britain can get extremely humid, which makes me being sensitive to humidity very annoying :U. Also Castform was made at a research lab in Hoenn and Britain is one of the leading technology countries in the world for some reason. Probably because our Government values money over human life or something.

    The basic idea behind the card is versatility! But of course, the versatility would require 4 of the 60 cards to be used up just for two different kinds of energy, though I suppose it would only be 2 extra cards if it were being run in a [W] or [R] deck to start with. Meteorology Ball is quite strong on paper, but realistically it can hit for a maximum 80 base damage if Castform also wants to make use of Climate Change, so I don't think it's too powerful. As far as I understand it, 100 base power isn't particularly broken either, even on a not-EX Pokémon. Forecast is just there to help make the most use of Climate Change and of Meteorology Ball. Castform's HP is quite high for a Castform, but from looking through the dex it looked about standard on a basic Pokémon that can actually dish out a bit of damage.

    I'm not sure how viable Weather Forecast will really be because it does involve discarding a Energy card from your hand. Naturally there are I think some trainer or item cards which fish Energy cards out of the discard pile, but that also means you have to run those item or trainer cards in your deck too just for Castform, and this thing definitely doesn't look good enough to be the glue of a deck to me.

    Wording-wise I'd like to justify my Climate Change ability not just saying "this Pokémon becomes x type" because then I think it would be able to make use of stuff like Splash Energy? That'd be exploitable by Meteorology Ball. And I didn't want to stipulate "basic" Energy in Meteorology Ball because I couldn't find a reference dictating where to stick the word "basic" into the sentence and didn't wanna get it wrong, so I opted for the long-hand on the Climate Change instead. Plus, I'm not entirely sure what exactly "this Pokemon becomes x type" necessarily does, and whether my weaknesses and resistances are standard or not.

    And yes, both "Forecast" and "Weather Ball" were taken by earlier Castform. They were the original names of "Weather Forecast" and "Meteorology Ball", respectively. I am sad they were taken.

    Finally, no weaknesses or resistances is certainly an interesting choice, but I didn't think it was very true to Castform to have a fighting weakness when it was in different weather forms, so I opted for this instead. I get that this can make it a decently strong basic (though 100 power isn't a lot, and it only has 110 HP anyway) without a weakness to off it sooner, but the impression of the metagame I get right now is that EXs can deal 110 HP in their sleep. And yes, it is possible to have no weaknesses or resistances, because Sableye did it. :p

    I'm just a little confused on this rule @bbninjas . My plan is to use the fourth linked icon here (this one) on my card. Does that cover this rule requirement, or do I need to have one of the first two linked logos as well? (i.e. does the icon count for a logo, or are you required to incorporate the logo, and then an additional set symbol if you'd like).

    You can use only one; those are destined to be placed as the Set Symbol at the bottom-right corner. The alternate ones are just a bit more "sober" or "standard" when compared to actual set symbols, so you're free to choose the one you like the most!

    Oh cool, so the Black Star with the CAC on it can be used as a Alternate. Perfect, thanks.
