    Submission 1: A Royal Lotus Pokémon...thing.

    (in Greek mythology) a legendary plant whose fruit induces a dreamy forgetfulness and an unwillingness to depart, so it could be like, in a lake as well, making weary travelers fall asleep in its garden oasis thing. It could live in a lake (valor HAHA), possibly surrounded by many Pokémon who've decided not to leave the oasis thing. IDK, just throwing out ideas.

    SPECIAL NOTE: Might have a mode change that turns it into some sort of Pacific Rim Kaiju or something.

    I think the legendary Pokémon looks like a Grass/Fairy Pokémon. I can't think of the other things though.

    [I'll make a funky logo looking thing to go here asap! :O]​
    The Valoriadex is a community project, and should thus run in a way that's understandable and fun to as many people as possible, if not everyone! Noticed a problem with the way things are proceeding? Have a suggestion for a way to make things run more smoothly? Leave anything you have to say about the project here!​

    Welcome to Lake Valor's very own community Fakedex Challenge!
    A community Fakedex challenge has the goal of creating a Fakedex, or fake Pokédex, by combining the efforts of anyone and everyone in the community! Inspired by the several that can be found on Tumblr and no doubt elsewhere, I thought that Lake Valor could give one a shot, too!
    The challenge isn't reserved for artists alone, with anyone being able to participate. The challenge will be made up of three stages:
    Submission​
    An instruction will be given at the beginning of each step of the challenge, being the guideline for what you need to design! For example, 'Design our ___ type starter' or 'Create an ability for ___' etc. You'll have 2 weeks to make your design and submit it, solo or with a partner! If you partner with someone, both of you will get credit for the design. Each individual can submit 2 entries at most!

    Voting​
    After the submissions are all in, we move to voting which entry should be picked! Voting for your own submission isn't allowed though! Voting will be done via poll, with the winner being chosen after 1 week of voting. Another submission stage will be up when voting begins.
    Refining​
    Refining is an indefinitely long stage during which you guys can flesh out the designs voted for. If a description is chosen for a Fakemon, refining is where an image can be put forward for it. Deciding on stats for moves and Fakemon as well as which Fakemon/Pokémon can have designed abilities happens here. Refining of a submission will stop once the list of what needs to be added is completed.
    Rules
    Submission​



    1. Only submit your own work! Plagiarism is absolutely not allowed and if you're caught doing so, you won't be allowed to submit to the challenge again. You will be allowed to vote and refine, however.
    2. You can submit up to 2 entries each time. This includes partnering up. Artists are recommended to submit their own design before deciding to partner up, else you might not be able to submit a design of your own!
    3. No submissions will be accepted after the 2 weeks is over. The deadline date and time will be clearly shown, so no excuses for being late!
    4. Follow the rules of the graphics section during your posts, please!



    Voting​



    1. You cannot vote for either of your own submissions, regardless of whether you were partnered up or not.
    2. Don't bribe others to vote for your submission! Let's keep the voting fair and give everyone a chance. Avoid voting for submission by your favourite members too, it's the entry we're voting for not the entrant!
    3. Keep comments neutral and happy please! No whining about losing or bragging about winning, etc.



    Refining​



    1. Don't be whiny if your idea doesn't get used, and don't pressure the winner(s) into choosing your idea!
    2. Like with the submission stage, keep your contributions original and no plagiarism! If you're caught doing so, you'll be stopped from participating in refining. Voting and submission will still be open to you, granted you don't break submission's 1st rule.



    Now that you know everything you need to know, have fun taking part in our fakedex project!​

    Submission 4 - Design the grass type starter line!
    @[member="HiddenLore"]'s starter types were chosen during the most recent polls, with each starter line being primarily dragon type with secondary grass, water, and fire types. The first set to be designed will be the grass-type starters, as they're the first line to appear in each Pokédex. You can take inspiration from whatever and wherever you like, but remember to keep the design original! We'll stick to designing the look of the three Pokémon and name them during refining. If you enter a drawing, don't worry about making them perfectly neat! The refining stage will again be where the neater, more official-looking art will be made.
    @[member="Magpaeonia"]'s [it me lol] designs won the poll, so next up is the refining! Each poll for the refining of this submission will have 3 questions, since there're 3 Fakemon in the line.
    A list of what we need to refine...
    • Art similar to the official Pokémon art
    • A Name
    • Species name
    • Fakedex entry number
    • Type(s)
    • Ability/Abilities
    • Gender [If any]
    • Hatch time
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Base experience yield
    • Leveling rate
    • EV yield
    • Body style
    • Footprint
    • Base friendship
    • Biology
    • A Pokédex Entry
    • Base stats
    • Signature Move
    • Movepool
    • Shiny form
    • Sprites [Back, Front] Normal and shiny
    • Lore
    An image of the designs can be found below! We'll start by naming the three stages, so reply with your suggestions.
    Poll will be TBA (TO BE ANNOUNCED, for now no deadline set)

    Submission 6 - Design the regional bird Pokémon line!
    Every Pokédex has a few 'trend' Pokémon; Pokémon that have very similar parallels in every Pokédex. A well known example would be the 'regional bird Pokémon line', for lack of a better term. Pidgey, Starly, Fletchling and so on. A line of 3 Pokémon, they reflect the real world bird they're based on quite a lot and, though not always, tend to be secondarily normal type. Don't let that restrict you though; you can make the secondary type anything you like! Make sure to include the real world bird species you're basing your design on!
    As only one submission was put forth, @[member="Weaselbear"]'s designs will be used! Refining will begin immediately.
    What we need to refine for this submission:
    • Art similar to the official Pokémon art [If possible]
    • A Name
    • Species name
    • Fakedex entry number
    • Type(s)
    • Ability/Abilities
    • Gender [If any]
    • Hatch time
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Base experience yield
    • Leveling rate
    • EV yield
    • Body style
    • Footprint
    • Base friendship
    • Biology
    • A Pokédex Entry
    • Base stats
    • Signature Move
    • Movepool
    • Shiny form
    • Sprites [Back, Front] Normal and shiny
    The original entry came with suggested names, but other suggestions can be put forward by you guys. If no other suggestions are made, Chickajay, Jayvian, and Feathazul will be used.
    There is 1 week to put forward suggestions for names. Poll will be up on 24th May 23:00 GMT+00 if other suggestions are made.
    Feel free to reply with suggestions for the other pointers, too!

    Submission 7 - Decide the types of the legendary trio!
    We've decided on the look of the Pixie legendary, and now it's time to move to the main legendaries of the region. As is true for all Pokedexes, there's a trio that will be the focus of the games, being the mascots and tying in with the lore of the region somehow. They will most often than not be caught by the player, sometimes being required to be caught. Your jobs for this submission is to decide on the types you want the legendaries to be! Any type combos you fancy can be put forward for voting.
    @[member="Nauris"]' submission won the vote! The types for our legendary trio was decided to be Dark/Psychic, Light/Ghost, and Dragon/Magic.
    It was decided that the Dragon/Magic member of the trio will be the master! We'll get to designing the other two first. Feel free to leave ideas for themes among them and such as replies, too!
    The first legendary to design will be the Dark/Psychic legendary. Submit your designs within 2 weeks; the poll will up on 29th May 23:00 GMT+00!​

    The entries for this submission can be found in the Old Valoriadex posts topic.
    @[member="Ravenide"]'s entry for submission 1 won the vote, so we'll get to refining our first designed Fakemon! You can see the winning submission here.

    The list of things we'll need to sort out here is as follows:

    • Art similar to the official Pokémon art [If possible]
    • A Name Lotaelope @[member="Rio"]
    • Species name The Desire Pokémon @[member="Rio"]
    • Fakedex entry number
    • Type(s)
    • Ability/Abilities
    • Gender [If any]
    • Hatch time
    • Height
    • Weight
    • Base experience yield
    • Leveling rate
    • EV yield
    • Body style
    • Footprint
    • Base friendship
    • Biology
    • A Pokédex Entry

    There's something for everyone to contribute, so don't feel limited by your 'inability to draw', or 'lack of creativity'! If you have knowledge of competitive battling, you'll be invaluable help when it comes to deciding stats and movepools etc.

    The first name has been given to one of our Fakemon! Lotaelope is the name of the pixie legendary. Next up is deciding the species name, so leave your suggestions in a reply!
    Only one suggestion was left for the species name of Lotaelope, so it will be known as the Desire Pokémon as suggested by @[member="Rio"].
    Next up is deciding the entry number for Lotaelope! It was decided via extra vote that there would be 155 entries total, with some slots being put aside for mega evolutions. Which number should be given to Lotaelope?
    Leave your suggestions in a reply! The poll will be TBA (TO BE ANNOUNCED, for now no deadline set)

    The entries for this submission can be found in the Old Valoriadex posts topic.
    @[member="Primal26"]'s entry for naming the starting town of the region, Rolav town, won out during the votes! Next we'll be refining the starting town, with the following being our focuses:

    • A slogan 'A quaint home to memories of old and dreams of the new' @[member="Rio"]
    • List of buildings
    • List of inhabitants
    • An image of the town, sprited or drawn


    Next will be deciding on a list of the buildings in the starting town. This includes generic homes, buildings of interest as well as the home of the protagonist. The rival, or rivals, may also have their home here. A multiple choice poll will be put up and voters can choose as many options as they like! Options voted for by 50%+ of voters will be included.
    You will have 14 days to list the buildings! Poll will be up on August 8th.

    Submission 08 - Design Professor Hawthorn
    The name, gender and topic of research have all been decided for Professor Hawthorn. @[member="Hydra"]'s entry won the name poll, but there's yet plenty to decide on for the Professor. For example, her appearance!
    Her topic of research was decided to be the cultures and behaviours of Pokémon, so use that if you'd like as inspiration for the design.
    You will have 4 days to vote for the submission used. Poll ends 21st May 23:00 GMT+00.

    I think it would be cool to have the trio consist of a Poison/Water type and a Grass/Fire type. They could be causing natural unrest in the region under the influence of the evil team (the first could pollute the waters and the second could spread wildfires). The trio leader of this would be a Flying/Electric type. The leader could be focused around radiation, and be a natural force that sweeps lands apart with irridiated gales that the evil team wants to unleash.

    Sorry if we're not supposed to include lore in this, but the basic idea of the lore is what justifies my typing choices, so that's why I added it.

    You can include as much or as little extra information in any submission, since the extra information you provide could sway others when it comes to voting. The extra bits can be added in the refining stage too, so the effort is by no means wasted! :)

    Okay so, I bent my creative mind over the name for the Legendary Pokémon, and came up with a name for it:

    Sycrobela

    So, this name is built up from various words, allow me to explain how I came to this name:

    • First of all, I should explain the Pokémon's meaning in the game. I made the Pokémon represent hidden strengths and potential, something I think has never been covered by any other legendary Pokémon before. This strongly comes back in its name, so here it goes:
    • The Latin word "sycophantor" means "cozen, cheat or deceive". This refers to the Pokémon's cute and innocent appearance, which deceives the immense strength it actually hides.
    • The Latin word "robus" means "hardiness, strength or toughness" but also "flower". This is a perfect one-word summary for the legendary Pokémon, for obvious reasons
    • The name "Sycrobela" also hides the word "ruby" in it, kind of. This refers to the Pokémon big, bright red eyes, almost as bright as actual gemstones.
    • And finally, [​IMG]Magpaeonia almost killed me for not including enough cultural differences in the name, so I decided to end the name with "insela", the Romanian word for "deceive". Now the name has different languages mixed in it, so I think the name is good as it is right now.
    It's interesting to see how only nine letters can hide so many references XD

    [​IMG]

    I started this by trying to find a dragon that traditionally inhabited the grass lands, but had no luck, then I was thinking Dragon, and grass, and grass is a plant and plants bear fruit and dragon fruit.... and then it hit me. So this species is based on the dragonfruit growing from a little dragon fruit shaped guy, to a more full sized beast with the same fruit head, but the leafs from the tree, and the final form grows edible dragon fruit on it's tail. Tropius style

    So my idea for a trio would be called the Earth Trio, basically think of a trio that have resided in the earth under a deep slumber, and have been known to be pure evil in some way. The main typing that goes for the entire trio is Ground type, but the two main Pokémon of the Trio will actually be Ground/Dark typing, but with a unique ability. The two Legendary Pokémon will change typing based on the terrain, so for example if Grassy Terrain was in affect, the Pokémon will change to Ground/Grass. This adds on to the whole Earth Lore and idea of the Trio, and the reason behind the Dark typing is to represent how evil these Earth Pokémon are. As for the third Pokémon of the Earth Trio, it will actually be Ground/Ghost, acting as a hollow shell. The Ground/Ghost type will be an extremely Bulky Pokémon, with different forms. Once again when there is terrain it will change its typing to Ground/Different typing, but this Earth Pokémon being the leader of the trio will change forms on terrain, gaining a different boost in some way. So an example would be a Sand Terrain. This will cause the Pokemons typing to be Ground/Rock, and will become a strong Physical attacker while still attaining a high HP stat, but a tad lower defenses. Going in a water terrain, the typing will be Ground/Water and the Pokémon will become a Fast attacker, losing a lot of defenses but keeping its HP stat constant. I feel the Earth trio can be an interesting Trio and yes these types aren't really that creative, but the lore supports the reason for it. The only time their typing will not change is if the stadium is a neutral terrain like online play.
    The Earth Trio will also have the capability of using every terrain move, and weather move as it assists them in terms of typing.


    In terms of combinations, here are all the different types the Trio can acquire

    Ground/Dark(Only the first two can have this combination)
    Ground/Ghost(Only the main leader of the trio can have this combination)
    Ground/Fairy (Misty Terrain)
    Ground/Water(Rain, surfing, diving, and Fishing)
    Ground/Grass(Grassy terrain, or Really Tall Grass)
    Ground/Rock(Cave, sandstorm, and cliff/mountain)
    Ground/Flying(Sky Battles, and soaring)
    Ground/Fire(Volcano, or sun)
    Ground/Ice(Hail or snow)
    Ground/Electric(Electric Terrain or power plant)

    For anyone interested in what the evil teams goals would be, is to take control of the Earth Pokémon and completely control the world by being able to move continents, changing land, and more.

    The Trio will have a signature move that is a ground type move that does both physical and special damage, and similar to Hawlucha will be dual type, but only based on the second typing the Pokémon acquires. Yes this move is Ground meaning if you're a flying type then this attack cannot hit you. Sorry if this is irrelevant in some cases, but i do want to add this as it adds to the whole idea of the Earth Pokémon Lore.
