    The other writer chooses Cubone. They post 2 posts of 10,000.
    Like adding the POV of the Cubone searching for mother, while the Kangaskhan goes through some adventure.

    So the posts go:
    k 10k
    k 10k
    k 10k
    c 10k
    k 10k
    c 10k

    Why can't this happen?

    Hm. I'm not sure. Ask Nemo, Kat, or George (him being the best sense he's head :'P )

    Quick Question: Does a story to catch the Pokemon have to be whatever number of characters up to their capture, or could their capture be at the beginning of the story and then fill up the characters afterwards?

    From what I can tell, you can catch the Pokemon you want in the beginning of your story and write some stuff that happens afterwards, but you need to have am event or something that allows for a choice to be made depending on capture. For instance, you could capture Yamba early on but then have it meet another Yamba and have it decide whether it wants to stay with you or go with the Yamna. Or, someone could steal your newly captured Yamna and you have to get it back, ending the story with some sort of choice that must be made. I'm not entirely sure though, but I have read several stories that have after bits that were included and others that were not included in the character count.

    Yep, there definitely has to be a choice at the end. You can't capture a Pokemon have merry times and then go to bed though. You don't even need to capture though, friendship or partnering choices are good too.

    The latter is the case. There are no stipulations or guidelines attached.

    Ah, ok. Because in my story, the guy catches a Yanma, then heads back to the base and some stuff happens to wrap up that part but doesn't involve Yanma really. Is that fine?

    Hehe, I assumed. But yeah. Catching isn't actually as inflexible as a lot of people think. The story's culmination doesn't have to have anything to do with the capture itself, unless the lack of a strict capture prevents the story from being fundamentally "URPG"... which is something that graders technically are only supposed to harp about if the writer's piece is sub-standard.

    Again, I thrive on this rule :'3

    So, to sum up, you can do whatever you want, as long as you catch the Pokemon somehow at some point and it fits with the right character length?

    I didn't even have any Pokemon-catching in my last story.
    (Then again, it hasn't been graded yet. Backlog's about two-and-a-half weeks right now. I should get on that.)
    I grade things for the URPG.

    New experimental grading system. Request a tier after I claim your story:
    Tier I / Basic: A quick verdict and some useful advice without much fuss.
    Tier II / Normal: More in-depth analysis.
    Tier III / Heavy: I WILL TEAR YOUR STORY TO SHREDS AND TAP-DANCE ON THE PIECES

    Pretty much. And you don't need a literal capture, even there.

    I have a question about story deals. If you participate in a Story Deal, do you still post the trade in the trade thread or do you just switch mons? If so, couldn't that lead to a story deal becoming denied?

    You post in the Trade Thread. People often back out of Story Deals; it's a hazard that comes with the job.
