We did it CAP! They have been implemented! Thanks everyone for the support you are all CAPmazing <3

Hey, you! Yes, you! Do you like funny sprites? Have you ever seen those funny sprites that appear on Showdown every April's Fools? Would you like to colaborate with the AFD sprites team to create some?
Well, this place is for you!
.·͙*̩̩͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩̥͙Welcome to the AFD sprites CAPplications!*̩̩̥͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩͙‧͙ .
You can see the History of April Fools’ Day Sprites here, be sure to take a look at it!
AFD sprites can be turned on in showdown with /afd on and turned off with /afd off and always are turned on by default on April 1st. You can see them by clicking here. Here are some examples: Pidove, Houndstone, Maushold-Four and Necturna.

You see, the sprites are done by the AFD sprites team, but we were given permission to create the CAP LC and CAP NFE ones!

How are they done?
  • Each Individual Pokémon has in total four (4) sprites (Normal, Back, Shiny, Shiny Back):​
  • Some have gender differences, which makes them have more, but some do not have a different sprite even when they have gender differences, like Arghonaut from the first pic.
  • Some sprites are different between their front and back sprites

And a very important detail: They are 96x96 pixels each

Now, how can YOU help?​
Here is the great part, anyone can enter!

What are the requirements?
  • The sprites must be 96x96 pixels exactly
  • They must be in PNG format
  • Front sprites face to the left, back sprites face to the right
  • You have to create all of the sprites required, for example, if the CAP has gender differences, you must also submit them, however, the female one may not be used, but it is required in case it is necessary
  • New! No limits in amount of submissions, share as many as you want
  • Please, do not submit offensive or gross submisions, you will not be able to participate anymore, your submission will be deleted and I will hate you
  • There is no artistic style requirement, you are free to design!
This is what you need to do:
  1. Select a Pokémon from the available ones
  2. Post in the thread that you reserve that Pokémon
  3. Create all the sprites necessary
  4. ???
  5. Post them
  6. Done!
I have taken the liberty to create one as an example...

Since some sprites were already done in the CAP discord, I will allow those to be uploaded even if the person already did one, but no more than the ones already done.

Was originally going to just do a Shiny Dorsoil for the shiny sprite, but a couple people really wanted the Dead Dorsoil and I wanted a bit of consistency between the front and back sprites, so I decided to just make the shiny sprite Dead Dorsoil instead.

Edit: I decided to adjust the submission a bit so that the Dorsoil is a bit bigger in the sprite.
