I know I said I don't like medals very much at all, but that is all the more reason to at least try to do come up with something pleasing myself.

So my idea is using the letters "re" as in returned or reborn, to show they came back from the old (dead) Virtuadopt.

I am not good with making neat shapes or the perfect lettering style for it, but I tried to do something.The Lotus flower symbolizes rebirth, so I thought that could work as a symbol/medal. I hope it's not too similar to the custom adopts crowns, I don't remember exactly what they were like, but I think maybe someone more skilled could make that work still.

It could also say "re:" to make it look a bit cooler xP

I already thought that it'd be kinda sad to have these medals on my shiny Pokémon, it would make me want to have one without one instead, which would take away the purpose of moving my adopts for me personally. And yes, I'd be even worse on promos. I didn't even consider that.
So, +1 for that idea!
YES!! :wub:
Maybe it's possible to add by Adopt Statics, Migrated VirtuAdopts : (number)
And add have the symbol in there?

Also a question :)
I'm not a Pro xD
I have a cute design, made with paint, but it needs more (grey) pixels to make it match, and less sharp (some adjustments)

Is that okay to post it, or does it needs to be ready to use? :)
Or is it okay to post, and if it gets chose, that maybe a Artist can edit it, to a final design? :D
I've been thinking about this question a few times since you asked it, and I still don't really have an answer. On one hand, I can see where you're coming from. On the other, is that an unfair advantage, judging the concept of an idea and not what is submitted. I think it would be okay to take the concept of the idea into account if the winner is open to constructive feedback on ways to improve it for the final product. I don't want to speak for the artists and say yeah sure, they can clean up the winning entry for use as the final product. If it's just touch-up work to make it blend better or getting the transparent background, I think that's fine for us to handle. Hopefully that answers your question, but just do your best. :)
Thank you for answering ^^
I will add a little idea, and see how it goes xD
I don't make digital art, so it's simple :P
yankeesrule3526 wrote: May 3rd, 2022, 12:13 am Separate post cause unrelated to my previous reply, but UkeSora is correct. It doesn't have to say OG and it is a little weird (I 100% knew that going in but I didn't have any better ideas). If it has letters, it could just be "VA" or something. Multiple minds are better than mine.
I was also thinking about VA, cool to hear that's a possibilty too =D
I will continue creating a medal ^^



Cool Submits so far, good luck all :king:

So I had a cute design too ^^
First I had OG in it, but it looked so weird
With my idea/ design, it looked like a Pokemon GO / Pokemon OG thing
Like if it was a typing error, haha xD

So I changed it to VA, and made a simulair new design ^^
It was based on the old Pokeball in Red/Blue/Yellow
A sweet memory of the previous gen / VA :D
I also made a original colours design, and simple black
For myself I like the grey one the best

I'm not a pro, totally not xD
But I would like to give this contest a try ^^
Here it is :wub:

How it looks like:

(I don't really know how to make them transparant xD)

Imagine how cool it is, how proud you can be, and such honour if your own made design / idea wins! :wub:

Good luck all, may the best design win! :king:

In recent Pokémon Games, there is a linking cord that replaces trade evolutions. In the early gameboy games, you also needed to trade with an actual cable (no wireless connections), so that's a nice throwback to that.

I would use this linking cord sprite to indicate Pokémon that "have been transfered over".

I used the original sprite, and one where I tried to make it a bit darker.

I would add "OG" to state "Original". But any text could work.

I also will try my luck despite having no experience with working with graphics programs ^^'

So here are my ideas on the medal.

I used arrows as a return sign.
Also tried to make clear background but it partially failed, sorry.
