BFOI-Y2 App 2.0 by tazsaints BFOI-Y2 App 2.0 by tazsaints

Adressing issues that can no longer be ignored with the Shield App format, we have now introduced the Stripe App, to be used for all new characters from R5 onwards until the end of the Y2 Challenge.

This file is in PSD Format, and includes Initiative and Valkyrie colours for those entering in the NRE, and NPC colours for those who only wish to partake in side events. 


Trainer Section:
:bulletblue: There is room for both front and back reference on the Stripe app and we strongly encourage to have both sides as ref for other artists, but we will not decline a character if only the front is shown. 
:bulletblue: Full body shots are a must, however! If you 'forget' to draw certain body parts on the form (such as feet) then it will be declined.
:bulletblue: Trainers must be a minimum of Age 10, although it's recommended to have them older than this, due to the nature of Y2 events.
:bulletblue: Trainer Home Towns MUST be from a canon place in the Anime or Games, the only exception to this rule is the Ohana Islands.
:bulletblue: The 'About' section on the app is meant to be a brief summary, if you need to write a novel, do so in the artist comments below the app.
:bulletblue: Any Anthro/Gijinka Trainers MUST be based on Pokemon (and only one pokemon at that - No human Dittos!).
:bulletblue: Shapeshifters are restricted to a MAX of ONE alternate form, and MUST include full ref of their Alt Form.

Pokemon Section:
:bulletorange: All Pokemon must be recognisable from their mugshots. If we cannot tell what it is, then it will not be accepted.
:bulletorange: Pet pokemon are NOT allowed. 
:bulletorange: Levels and items are not required. 
:bulletorange: ALL moves must be legally obtainable within the games. This includes breeding and event Pkmn (such as Surfing Pikachu). However, you cannot combine event-only moves (eg: you cannot have a Pikachu with BOTH Fly & Surf).
:bulletorange: Hidden abilities ARE allowed.
:bulletorange: Colour Variations allowed are Normal, Shiny, Pinkan, Albino & Melano. Anything outside of these colour ranges or used incorrectly (such as 'half' albino) will not be accepted.
:bulletorange: Due to story conditions in Y2, Trainers may only have ONE Gen 6 Pokémon on their team, and it currently cannot be evolved (the only exception to this is Sylveon). 
:bulletorange: Mega Forms are not permissible in Y2.

Misc Application Notes:
:bulletgreen: It goes without saying, but ALL art must be new, and your own work.
:bulletgreen: You are NOT allowed to change the header, the base colours or alter the shape of these apps in any way. They are made as such so that they are easily identifiable even as a thumbnail.
:bulletgreen: While this app is replacing the Shield version, those already on the Shield may continue to use that version until the end of the contest under Legacy rules (aka rules that existed and are valid prior to updates).
:bulletgreen: The Stripe app will not be used for any Y3 style of challenge.
:bulletgreen: For those who accidentally change it (be it program issues or whathaveyou), the Font used on the sheet is Gill Sans MT.
:bulletgreen: By filling in and submitting this Trainer Application, you agree to the following: 
       -- That your character may be drawn by other members of the group.
       -- That ALL art following and including this app, must be new, and your own work. 
       -- That you not abuse other people's characters and will gain their permission for anything more involved than fanart/cameos.
:bulletgreen: This Trainer Application is NOT a Meme, and NOT for use outside of the BFOI Group.

Please refer to the Rules/FAQ on the group itself for the answer. I do not answer group related questions on my personal profile.

Can you make your own template or do you have to use this one?

I have a question. I'm a little confused because I entered in Y2 with the shield app but my schedule became too busy to continue. So with this new app do I have to make that same trainer even though he didn't participate in anything past round 0-1? Or can I make a new trainer?

This kinda' question should've gone to the journal concering the NRE round, but I'll answer it here.

The round is a ReEntry or Entry chance for people, meaning that characters who did not pass a round can attempt to continue (Re-Entry) or otherwise enter anew, be it as a new member or just new character (Entry). In the case of ReEntry, people are required to migrate from the old Shield app format to Stripe before continuing, while new characters go directly onto the Stripe.

It's up to you what path you take, we aren't going to decide for you what character you use.

This layout is a lot more efficient. ;u;
I was thinking about updating my app sometime soon. Even though I'm still in the main contest as of now, would it be okay if I switched from the Shield version to this one? 8)
