▸ When filling out your application, please make your title your characters trainer class in capital letters, followed by their full name in lower case (eg. KNIGHT, maya drake). This is a requirement, and we will ask you to change it if you do not comply.
▸ If an admin asks you to change something on your application, don't be offended, just do what they ask. It's not an attack, it's merely to help you out and to make sure your character fits in with the site as it is.
▸ Do not post in-character until your application has been accepted by a staff member and moved to the correct forum. If a week has passed and your application has yet to be checked, you may ask a staffer via a polite PM to please check your application. Please do not ask repetitively over the cbox.
▸ When you complete your application, please post in the "notification thread" so that the admins know to check it over.
▸ Your character should not be exactly like their face claim unless they are a canon. Please use the creative mind we all know you have and want to experience. Of course there will be similarities, but make certain they have some differences that are pronounced enough that we will notice them.
▸ Your characters are allowed to be at any stage in their development. The only exception to the rule is that for canons, who will be towards the end of their journey because they have already completed their arc. The story is set four years after Serena and Calem defeated Team Flare. Please take this into consideration.
▸ We allow all moves learned by TM, leveling or tutoring. We use Bulbapedia's XY guide and would appreciate you do the same. If you are selecting egg moves, please make sure they come from the same father pokemon.
▸ Make sure to check the different lists and bans before you apply for a character, especially canons. If you desperately want a canon character, make certain to reserve them as they are first come, first served.
▸ You may post works in progress, but if they are not completed within two weeks of posting, they will be moved to the archive. You may ask to have them moved back, we just want to make certain that characters are all being completed, not left abandoned at application stage.
