Bug Catching Contest
Hello, everybody! Remember me? It's Bugsy from Azalea Town! As you know, I love Bug Pokémon very much! My passion for them stretches so far that I enjoy sharing it with other people too! So, the in first months of every Summer & Autumn I rent out the National Park to make way for the Bug Catching Contest! It's a lot of fun and easy to do. Here's how it works!
For the first week of the month I'll be taking sign-ups to anybody who has at least earned the Zephyr Badge from Falkner's gym in Violet City. Don't worry, it's free to join. Just fill out the form that can be found in this thread. When the week is done, sign-ups are over and the actual contest gets under way with participants making topics in this board with thread titles carrying the suffix (BCC)!
During the contest you may bring only one Pokémon with you to battle, the rest you'll have to leave behind. Don't worry, we'll give them back when the contest is done. Also, keep in mind your Pokémon will gain levels from this contest so be sure to keep it used only in this contest and not anywhere else (eg: main RP topics, estates topics, modded group RPs). You will be disqualified if this is breached.
We give you 15 Sport Balls to use to catch the Bug Pokémon with: you are not allowed to bring in your own Pokéballs! You can take with you only one Bug Pokémon to submit for judging. If you catch another bug and you want to keep it, you must release the other one. Oh, and important to mention, but you cannot battle with the Bug Pokémon you caught during the contest and you're not allowed to heal it.
Your contest ends when one or more of the following happens:
*Any item/ability that would skew what rarity bracket you'd encounter is invalid for this contest
- When the end of the month occurs
- When you have reached 5 encounters
- When you run out of all 15 Sport Balls
- When your Pokémon gets knocked out
- When you decide to end your contest early (closing the topic)
- If your chosen Pokémon is found used elsewhere in modded topics
Other things of note:
- Word counts do apply to your eggs
- Running Shoes can be used as normal (per encounter)
Pokémon judging begins the first day of the next month and the winners will be announced. Points are based on the Pokémon's species, level, remaining HP, and how hard it was to catch. Naturally, the higher the points the better! The one who has the highest will be declared the winner and will be given a wonderful prize! So consider if it 1st place you want, or the rare Pokémon.
Don't worry, not only do we give the second and third place winners a prize as well, everybody will earn a prize for entering. On top of that, you get to keep the Pokémon that you caught as well, so it is win-win all around! And if, for example, two people tie first place with the same number of points, they both get first place! Don't be afraid to get down and dirty, so have fun!
1st: x2 + either Honey x2 OR Silver Powder
2nd: x1 + Choice of any Evo Stone
3rd: Choice of Special Pokéball from RT Shop(x2) OR TM145 Pin Missile
Consolation Prize: Net Ball
Universal: Everyone gets the Pokémon they keep for judging!
