A quick TL;DR for the ones who don't want to read everything: Just pick one theme you'd like us to try and promote for the next Site Wide Shiny Hunt (SWSH), and we'll try our best to make it a reality!
And, when the time comes, consider voting for the theme that won so we can, collectively, make it a reality! Scroll a little down to the "About this month's options" to read more about the reasoning behind the options for this pre-voting stage! And, also, don't forget to check out the "Rules" part just to be in the safe side and not make an oopsie!


So without further ado:

Hi everyone! Roo over here!
Are you tired of the SWSH being, most of the times, the last three Pokemon that have been added to the site? Are you tired of feeling as if your favorite generation doesn't get enough love, or is swept by the most recent ones? Do you wish you could have a hand in influencing the Pokemon we are going to hunt?
Look no further, you are in the RIGHT place.

For those who don't know me: I'm usually one of the organizers for past SWSH themes we've had! Particularly, I helped with Moth Month (March 2021) and Lovecraft Lovers (July 2021), and now I want YOU to decide which theme you'd like to see in the next SWSH!



"Ok, sounds nice, but what do I have to do again?"

The plan is quite simple: every non-SWSH month I'm gonna post a thread just like this with 3 themes, and you just have to choose the one you like the most! Then, the next month (the SWSH one) you'll see posters or info graphics inviting people to vote for the theme that had the most votes. PLEASE, consider voting for it and help out the other people who are already excited for a certain theme!

You can also look at it this way: if they get their theme quickly, it means we can get to the one you'd like faster than if you didn't help them! Mutual help! \o/



But wait that's not all! You can also help in other ways!

Personally, I encourage people to express themselves and ask for what they'd like. So, if you have a theme you'd like to see come true, please, go ahead and comment in this thread with it!
If you can, please tell me the reasoning behind them (if there's any: for example "Pidgey, Fearow, Farfetch'd, because I like Kanto AND, more importantly, BIRBS") so I can try to think of ways to make them more appealing! Be that with a brand new story like I did with Lovecraft Lovers, OR by bothering Gajeel Redfox into using thematic images related to what you wanted!

So, think of one theme and post it if you want! Be sure to check this link, and make sure that the Pokemon you want haven't been hunted before!

Currently we have 39 different themes, but you can always propose more! grin.gif



About this month's options

Since we are going to be SOOO close to Halloween when the next SWSH comes up, I've decided to pick two related themes AND another one because of other reasons. Keep in mind though, that this is not something that I'll usually do: if we continue with this (new?) tradition, said themes will be chosen RANDOMLY unless there's a specific timeframe where it would make sense to try and nudge one in the options. This is democracy, and I won't rig the pre-voting at all!

Anyway, the reason behind this month's options are:

- Mushroom Month: Shroomish, Morelull, Foongus. Proposed by mycrimsonangel and given a timeframe by Drymm, Mushroom Month is pretty explanatory: All of them are shrooms! As for the timeframe, mushrooms usually appear after the rainy season, and are also associated to Fall, so what best time to start this theme but in the first month of Fall (at least in the Northern Hemisphere): September!
- Don’t be afraid of the Dark: Sableye, Spiritomb, Pawniard. Proposed by Piers, this theme is inspired, partly, by Halloween, where spooky scary things go out in the DARK. Yes, all the Pokemon are actually DARK types, and the first two are ghosts too! Now Pawniard? Well... Let's just say that steel can be REALLY sharp too, you know?
- Mammals of Sword/Shield Raid Battles (working title, not the final one): Tauros, Wailmer, Skwobet. Proposed by pumpkinking0192, this theme also has a timeframe. Why? Well, Sword and Shield are going to be replaced soon by a new core series game, so why not send them off in a GPX way too? There were two other 'mons, but I had to limit it to those 3 due to space and ended using those three because those were the only mammals of them all, so it's like a DOUBLE theme! \o/

So, which one will you choose and would like for us to promote? Be sure to vote in the poll!

I also can't stress this enough, but: Your participation is important, both in this pre-voting stage and in the actual voting stage! So, please, consider participating! After all, this is only a pilot project, and if it takes off, I WILL continue with the same dynamic in the future!



IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER

This project is, by NO MEANS, replacing the official SWSH nor officially associated with it. This is just a COMMUNITY project that focuses on trying to organize future SWSHs to give them an extra flavor.
As such, I CANNOT and WILL NOT promise that the winning theme of this stage will be the official SWSH next month, but you can BET we'll do our best to make that come true! That's why your cooperation in voting for the winning theme is also encouraged!


And that's all. Now I'll just leave the official rules just to be in the same page.



RULES

- Do NOT harass people into voting for what you want. Encouraging people is okay tho', so choose your words wisely.
Helpful examples! (Maybe) (click to show)


- Regular forum rules apply! So don't double post, or don't ask for clicks every time your party's full again!

- Don't post your shinies here. Rather post them over here, since more people would be able to see them! ;D

- You wanna rage about something? We actually have a place where to vent any negative feeling you might have, so click on that link so you can go there and release some tension!

- Try not to use swear words! This is a feels-good space, y'all!

- Memes are PERFECT in here, BUT do remember that they can stretch the page, so if they are big or a lot of them, remember to spoiler them so it doesn't get too bad!

- Try not to make BIG quote pyramids! Why? Because of page stretching, of course!

- We love to talk around here, so if you wanna comment something, feel free to do so and evade SUPER short posts if possible.

I already told you over on Discord but for anyone else reading this:
ACCEPTED!
I ended up choosing Corphish, Crabrawler and Clauncher, and gave it the "Crustacean theme" (Technically, Corphish isn't quite a Crab), and I ended up choosing those because brain be funny and "4 C's, yes yes. It's all coming together now. Carcinization! \o/

Thank you for the reply!

And everyone, thank you for your feedback! grin.gif
