So who has an idea for how to choose the pokemon? Tracy and I can submit 5 names and then people can vote for the favorite, or we could use a random number generator. What do you guys think?

I like the idea of the random number generator but I think we should vote for the Pokemon chosen so we have a majority that likes that Pokemon. (Ex. Like if we get Voltorb or something, we could vote to choose a new random number.) Oh, are the creations going to be minifig scale or any size? Or will it depend on the month?

So, are we still doing the minifig-scale thing?

Yes the models will all be 3 dimensional but it will depend on the month whether it will be minifig scale or not. Mostly it will be at any scale the person wishes.

Also, I now think we could do a random number generator 5 times to get 5 pokemon, and then have the vote on those pokemon. It's a pretty fair strategy and will generate many original pokemon.

Ok then. I think randomly generating 5 and voting is the best choice.

But we need about three judges that don't compete, don't we?

Yes we will need three judges who arent competing which means we will need to wait for a few more members. Any volunteers so far?

Can I be a judge? I don't have that many LEGOs, and I'm short on cash.

The newer pokemon are past my time, I'm more of a blue through gold version kinda guy, so if the month has a newer pokemon then count me in for judging instead of building.

Yes we will definitely have one in february. I will submit the 5 pokemon names by the end of this weekend. The deadline will be the last friday of february, so the judges will have time to judge over the weekend. Stay updated! -Sam

Well, this is a contest group. You have to build a new pokemon every month. This month it's Mantine.

Yes, the only creations allowed in the group are entries for the month's contest. Sorry if that wasn't made clear by the rules.

Wow, that's beautiful, Kevin. I have a design finished. It's minifig-scale, so it's not as detailed as yours. I just need to order some parts because I don't have the right colors.

Just saw and reviewed Kevin's awesome Mantine.... my model feels puny. I'll have it uploaded soon. Wondering what you'll come up with, Tracy.

Tracy and I choose the judges for each month. There are two judges per month (we already have two) but if you would like to volunteer for a later month I would be honored. -Sam

So how's the time budgeted for next month. Are we gonna get judging results on the first? Five new picks on the second? Voting until Friday or Saturday maybe?

I think we'll get our 5 options tomorrow. Voting for those as well as judging will go on that week and then we'll get results for both. But that's up to Sam. I don't know how he wants to handle the judging and he's also got the number generator.

I will post the 5 new pokemon tomorrow morning and voting for the month of March will continue until Friday night. The votes will be tallied and the new pokemon will be posted saturday morning.
