Hi everyone! To celebrate the upcoming GenVI and the opening of this blog, we are holding a Trainer OC Contest in conjunction with Fan Art Integrity Club at deviantArt! So, here are the official rules!

1. The contest will run through October 11, 2013. All entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM US Eastern Time on this date.

2. You are permitted up to three entries split between deviantArt and tumblr.

3. All art must be yours - no traces, bases, dollmakers, or recolors.

4. Although this is called a ‘Trainer OC’ contest, your character may hold any position in the Pokemon World, including (but not limited to) Trainer, Coordinator, Nurse, Police Officer, and even Villain Team Member.

5. Each OC may have from one to six Pokemon.

  • Confirmed Gen VI Pokemon are permitted. Fakemon are not.
  • Shinies are permitted, but keep the rarity of this phenomenon in mind.
  • You are allowed one Legendary Pokemon per OC; however, your entry must include an explanation for this Pokemon’s presence with your OC. This is the only situation in which the Pokemon’s backstory is mandatory.

6. OCs may possess any special ability found in the games, manga, or anime, including (but not limited to) Aura, telepathy/telekinesis, and the ability to understand Pokemon speech; however, you are limited to one such ability per character.

To Enter

You may enter by submitting to heckyeahtrainerocs on tumblr, or to the folder ‘Pokemon Trainer Contest 2013’ at fanartintegrityclub.deviantart.com. Your entry should be a drawing of your character, and the caption should have the following information:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Home Town/Region
  • Occupation (Trainer, Coordinator, et cetera)

  • Abilities (if any)
  • Strengths

  • Relationships (family, friends, any canon characters they’ve met)
  • Goals
  • Other (any miscellaneous information you’d like to add)


Judging will be carried out by nikkisartcorner and WingedHippocampus

You will be judged on:

  • Overall appeal of design
  • Detail of character description
  • How well your character fits the Pokemon World

You will NOT be judged on:

  • Artistic skill. Just bring your best to the plate!

Remember, all entries are due by 11:59 PM US Eastern Time on October 11! Winners will be announced no later than October 15, 2013.

Have fun, and address all questions to our ask box!
