    Tech. I don't believe the story has to actually be graded for it to be entered. That is due simply to the fact that there are more stories than graders and grades can take a few days to be put together. So I'd just wait for a little bit and someone will come by and claim/grade the story

    There's a grading contest going on right now, so in theory, things will get graded more quickly. There's a pretty significant backlog, though. I'm going to be speed-grading a bit this week, hopefully, and I'll try to hit yours.

    Emanation: Chapter 1 *Ready for Grading*

    Bleah, I suppose I'm requesting a grade for that. Normally I wouldn't request one so soon after posting the actual story, but I sort of need the mon urgently -_-' If you have the spare time, feel free to grade it, but no worries if you can't.

    Most people tend to because the official spellings of Moves, Abilities, Items and Pokemon are all capitalised. However I believe that officially it matters more that you remain consistent within your own story (then again I'm not a Grader, so I could be wrong)

    You would be marked down for not capitalising them. However, it would sort of go like this:

    Capitalising them consistently - #1
    Capitalising them most of the time, Not capitalising a few times - #2
    Not capitalising them a most of the time, Capitalising a few times - #3
    Not capitalising them consistently - #4

    If that makes any sense xD

    Eh, I encourage graders to not mark down number four.

    Really? To me, it should be marked down, because it's incorrect. It shouldn't, like, be marked down a huge deal, but should still count against the author.

    A lot of writers who don't capitalize argue that because we don't capitalize specific species, Pokémon species should be no different. Extending that argument to the moves gets a bit sketchier, but can be made based on the fact that a title doesn't necessarily have to be a proper noun. Because there's a justification for it, and because there's no obligation for Pokémon fanfiction to adhere to every aspect of the original (hence, fanfiction), I let it pass. I consider it a stylistic aspect, not a grammatical one.

    But yeah, it's a safe bet to capitalize, just because (as you can see, xD) there's a lot of varied opinion on how it should be done.

    Pokemon moves are capitalized in the games, as are Pokemon names. Regardless of whether or not animals or the like are capitalized irl, this is the Pokemon world. In the Pokemon world, Pokemon names, attack names, and Abilities (and Natures) are considered proper nouns, thus they are capitalized. Also, a fun fact: The word "Trainer" is supposed to be capitalized as well. I never really thought it was, I just did it because I prefer typing it that way, but meh.

    I just had a quick question before beginning writing; should I focus more on the way in which a Pokemon is captured (or came to be a potential member of my team), or is it more important to place the focal point of a particular story on character and longer term plot development.

    As in, are graders (and readers) looking to read a good story with a Pokemon being caught incidental to the plot, or does the plot revolve around the Pokemon being captured?

    I may have answered that for myself, but I just wanted to be sure.

    Thanks!

    You do not have to focus on the capture as the whole being for your story. It can be incidental; it can be the logical perfect ending to your story or whatnot.
