Just for clarification: no individual person "submits a CAP."How do I submit a CAP?
ThanksJust for clarification: no individual person "submits a CAP."
We are a community project that follows a step-by-step process where each element of a pokemon is broken up into concept, typing, ability, stats, and moveset. These elements are then voted on by the community.
Concept is the overarching idea for a given project. Once leadership has been elected, concept submissions will open for users to suggest the type of mechanics/playstyles we should consider exploring. Leadership will then create a slate of 5-8 options that will then be polled. Note that concepts cannot dictate typing, abilities, stats, and full movesets.
Typing, ability, stats, and movesets will each have discussions before submissions open. Each discussion will cover how these elements can/will help us accomplish the goal established by the concept.
CAP 32 will be starting soon. Following a project in progress will help with understanding how we work, so keep an eye out for that.
Resubmitting concepts is fairly common. In the past, some users have gone through old submission threads and resubmitted concepts that missed out during polling. If the concept being resubmitted was your own, you are welcome to resubmit. If the previous submitter is still active in the community, it is a good idea to get permission from them before resubmitting their ideas. Regardless, be sure to credit the original user.Would it be ok to resubmit a concept?
Official art can be found hereThere's a lot of link rot in older CAP final product posts, with a lot of art and spritesheets being missing. Additionally, the old CAP page on the Smogon website is in a broken state.
Is there a new repository for images of these CAPs, and will there be any action to restore the images to the final product posts?
https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/cap-31-part-17-post-play-lookback.3707757/Saharaja's 2.0 release thread doesn't appear to have its nerfs applied. Is there anywhere one could find Saharaja's stats post-post play lookback?
https://discord.gg/XuXgz6zCOkay I know this is probably a really stupid question, but does CAP have a Discord server, and if so, where can I join?
It would be against the rules, yes. This includes removed moves.Just to be clear, would a hypothetical concept submission revolving around distributing custom CAP moves/abilities to a new CAP be legal or against the rules?
Is it legal because it's using only moves and abilities available in SV (CAP format) or is it against the rules because CAP abilities don't technically exist in SV itself?
Damn. I'd kill for a second mountaineer mon.It would be against the rules, yes. This includes removed moves.
Everything you do not vote for gets treated as equal preference.I have a question about the ranked choice voting system:
Suppose that I actively dislike an option on a poll. I don't just not prefer it, I actively want to use my vote to hurt its standing as much as possible.
Would I be better off ranking every available option and putting my disliked option at the bottom, or not including it at all by only ranking a subset of the options?
Yes, and it can be seen with a quick glance at Pokémon Showdown's teambuilder or its entry in the item dex.Is there a sprite for the Vile Vial? :vile vial:
