a new year brings new expectations. civil unrest starts to manifest in the form of online criticisms that spike after the three day war. now that the region no longer has to face the threat of megalopolans, the people of hoenn turn to address smaller and more personal issues. will the league rise up to the situation? what about questionable events that have transpired, overshadowed and overlooked in the face of more imminent issues?

after the ultra beast war, hoenn begins to heal. the megalopolan invasion may have failed; however, it is clear there is much more at stake. a prophecy revolving around a cyclical meteoroid, the appearance of necrozma and a dangerous and viral alien threaten the safety of the region once more.
with rocket's new boss, the resurgence and reappearance of the crime syndicate's presence is imminent. the league has done its best to repair its reputation, and with the victory of a war under their belt, perhaps it is enough. but the seeds of distrust have already been sown in the ravaged land of this region, causing many to wonder what will grow?
BEAUTY CONTESTS ARE ON HOENN! Strive to become one of the region's top coordinators by performing stunning choreography with your Pokemon. The region is well known for its contest circuit— and in times of despair, Hoennians flock to these performances to feel inspired and hopeful.[break][break][break]
HOW TO & MECHANICS
HOW TO START A POKEMON CONTEST?
POKEMON CONTESTS WILL NOT BE MODERATED, save for the end where rewards are distributed. In other words, Pokemon Contests are entirely self-directed by the participating players and their characters![break][break][break]
To start a Pokemon Contest, select one of the following categories: cool, beauty, clever, tough, cute. However, feel free to theme your contests in different manners. For example, consider a battle of the bands instead or perhaps, a competition of floral design using grass-type pokemon like the reality show, The Big Flower Fight.[break][break][break]
You must find a minimum of 4 CHARACTERS to participate. Furthermore, feel free to elect a character to play the role of announcer, but that is not a necessary prerequisite.[break][break][break]
After, designate someone to create the Pokemon Contest thread and include the tag [bc] in the title. If you have an announcer, it is recommended that they start the thread using one the Pokemon Contest templates found here. Feel free to have a non-announcer character use these templates too, if you would like to someone to moderate the thread. These templates are not necessary for you to use.[break][break][break]
To complete a Pokemon Contest thread, everyone must post at least THREE TIMES, which can be flavored as THREE ROUNDS. Please note, your character can only participate in a Pokemon Contest a maximum of three times a month, however, this is subject to change.[break][break][break]
HOW DO I WIN?
TO WIN A POKEMON CONTEST, you must decide amongst the participating players who the winner is. You can decide who the runner up is, etc. However, ICly, the Pokemon Contest will have ties broken by a coin flip or a roll of the dice.[break][break][break]
However, you can also play with a simple ROLL COMMAND SYSTEM where the character who rolls the highest wins. Feel free to make up your own systems, for the Pokemon Contest templates also feature an area to edit "APPEAL" which is a system in the games.[break][break][break]
Should you complete a Pokemon Contest, you will receive the following rewards:[break][break][break]
If you participate or win in a Pokemon Contest, you can redeem the following awards:[break][break][break]
AFTER THE CONTEST IS OVER, please submit the thread into mod reqs and identify who the winner is. The winner will then be added to the Contest Hall Gallery below. As a note, the "MISC. CONTEST WINNER" category is reserved for winners who have won contests with custom themes.[break][break][break]
Furthermore, if your character is in the CONTEST HALL GALLERY, they can redeem prizes or rewards on the last day of the month via a site shop post! For every category they are able to achieve a standing in, they can redeem 10 POKEDOLLARS & 1 RAINBOW SHARD. For example, if your character has won a beauty contest in all six categories, they can redeem 60 POKEDOLLARS TOTAL & 6 RAINBOW SHARDS at the end of every month![break][break][break]
