Serious question: Has anyone ever successfully written for a Porygon-Z?

Yes. FireflyK wrote a terrific story for a Porygon-Z. The name escapes me, but you can find all of her threads using the Search function if you want to read it/look at it. ^^

Lemmie see, lemmie see, lemmie see.

Blood, blossoms, long lost love, an assassin...oh yeah ;) Those are all playing into a story I'm writing for the URPG. I'm hesitant to say exactly where it's going as of yet though :o It's probably going to be a part mystery-thrill, so I don't wanna ruin anything.

What stories are ya'll working on?

I have a question! -raises hand-
This has probably been asked before, but I am wondering if the Pokemon you are writing for has to appear in the actual story.
In the story I am writing for, a Trainer (who represents me) brings an egg to her Pokemon Ranch. Her Pokemon are looking after it and trouble arises... but can I end the story right as the egg is hatching, or does the contents of the egg have to be revealed. The whole story (well, most of it) is centered around the egg... but would that count?

And for Dragoness, I believe the above answered your question. Though I am also writing the very first (or almost first) story for a Gen V Pokemon (though it wont be posted until BW is released and whatnot.

Toodle-loo, fellow writers

@Tsuki: If you give some identifying features about the egg without fully revealing the inside, you should be good. Egg-based capture has been done before. However, you better have a good plot-related reason for holding out on what's in the egg in-story, or graders might just be like "THAT WAS UNNECESSARY GTFO."

@Dragoness: I'm working on a trans-dimensional epic that centers around concepts of power abuse and religion as a control mechanism and greater concept (as it is called into question by the whole trans-dimensional thing), but is basically about two nutcases running around in a devastated world and screwing junk up.

Arg! This month isn't going as I planned, heh. By now, all the PE2K stories should have been graded. Alas, my nemesis, Life, got in the way. Curses, foiled again! *twists imaginary mustache*

Anyway, money not enough incentive? To boost more PE2K activity and help boost the number of overall voters in the Winter Competition, for anyone that votes in the final round, I will priority grade your story before all others. Don't have a story posted now, then I'll do your next one.

I have guests over 'til Sunday, will resume grading on Monday.

Yet another reason for me to vote~ But what about if we have several ungraded stories? I have 4. (2 on BMG, 2 on here)

This is an ingenious moveset spread across the ages, constructed piece by piece with painstaking care in the arching caverns and ancient machinery of the most devious and cunning hive mind in the history of anything. This moveset brings Unown's fullest potential into the light. His most powerful move, Hidden Power, rips through Magikarp, Hoppip, and Feebas with its unimaginable power, 2HKOing and OHKOing Magikarp and Hoppip with Hidden Power Ice, respectively. A neutral Hidden Power gives Feebas the ol' one-two-hit KO. When facing such opponents, Unown is unbeatable.

Another question!! -raises hand more frantically-

In the List of Pokemon You Don't Hate, it says that "Actual story length may vary, according to effort shown in the story. This is a rough estimate to help give you an idea of what graders are looking for." So, what would be the 'punishment' for writing a story a few k off from the target? I know going above is totally approved and whatnot, but what if my target is 20-30k, but I write 18k? Every story that I have seen that is 'underwritten' is discarded pretty quickly, though I believe that is because they are aiming for 30-40k and have 4k, sooooooo.... Answers now, please?

Au revoir!
--Tsuki

The "punishment" for not meeting a character requirement is that the other categories might be judged a bit more strictly, depending on how far off target you are. If a story is well-written, but falls shy of the character requirement, there's still a chance it can be a successful capture. That being said, don't expect to get away for falling 10k short on a Demanding ranked Pokemon, unless the grader is really lenient.
