As of now I am outlawing preset Pokemon teams altogether. Whatever character you create, whether canon or not, they may not start off with any Pokemon unless they are caught or claimed through the relevant procedure (e.g. via the character or other characters a member may have)
I've been receiving a variety of complaints lately about the character Dawn which looked to have a starting Pokemon Party of 6. This is not acceptable and the creator of this character will not have any of these Pokemon authorised by me.
I will only allow the two canon characters that have currently been accepted so far: Lorelei and Bruno as they have discussed both their character and their Pokemon with me and I have had the final say on their preset team. These will be the first and last characters to be created with a preset team of Pokemon to end any further controversy over this issue.
There will no longer be any exceptions to this rule. This means that your character Kairi cannot start off with any Pokemon unless it is a Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Charmander and you must claim it in the ordinary way.
Preset Pokemon teams ruin all the fun of roleplaying for Pokemon. It also lowers the value of rare Pokemon as it may appear to others that such Pokemon can be requested if you have a certain character. For these reasons I am enforcing this rule strictly.
