Victini Fizzy-Form-Fest: Research Stage, Spring 2021

The telephone rings. “Hello? Professor Palm speaking. Good work, you’re the first caller! Uh huh? Okay. Mhmm. Great, thank you!” –CLICK–

The phone rings again. “Hello? Professor Palm speaking. Good work, you’re the first caller! Oh, you did? Uh huh... Great, thank you!” –CLICK–

The phone rings a third time. “Hello? Professor Palm speaking. Good work, you’re the first caller! Astounding! Thank you so much!” –CLICK–


A scatterbrained bespectacled man wearing a lab coat turns to face you as you gently knock on the opened door to his research office. “Oh, are you the new intern? Great, you’re the first one here! Thank you so much for coming; ever since my appearance on the Hellen Show and subsequent discovery of Squashsaur and Gourdasaur, calls have been flying in about reported Fizzytopian regional variants sighted throughout the continent! This brings me to why you’re here: There’s just too many reports to organize and sort through, and a lot of the claims are fake as well. Payment? Oh yes, of course! You don’t take college credit, do you? No? Okay I’ll see what I can come up with!”

“Now let’s get started. The first thing we need to sort through is going to be the broadest. Many of the claims can be divided into those who have spotted specific species of Pokemon while others have spotted a variety of species from a specific locale.” Professor Palm lays out a stack of papers that go beyond eye-level. “Let’s go through all of these and let me know which you find more of; claims of specific Pokemon species or claims that are tied to a specific locale. Once you’ve finished, I’ll hand out your payment so we can continue the process and continue refining our research!”


~~~~~~~

It’s time to begin our research for the next Fizzytopian Regional Variant expedition! Over the course of the following weeks, we will be putting it up to you, the community, to shape and design the parameters in which the next contest will be held. If the parameters of the contest don’t shape out exactly the way you want them, fret not; this voting process will be repeated with each consecutive contest so you’ll have plenty of opportunities for the contest to be designed in different ways! Here is how the voting process will work:
1.) You will be prompted with a question regarding an aspect of the contest’s design.
2.) PM me your vote within the allotted time period.
3.) Based on the majority vote of the community, follow-up polls will be set up to further refine the contest’s parameters.
4.) I will dispense participation rewards to members of the community who vote (the contents of your vote will remain confidential)
~~~~~~~

First Prompt: Is the Fizzytopian Form a specific species or come from a specific locale?
A.) Species-Centric: This contest will focus on 1 Specific species of Pokemon but with a theme that is open to interpretation.

B.) Locale-Centric: The contest will focus on a variety of species that fall under 1 unifying theme, using a location, holiday, or something else.
Second Prompt: What is the central theme of the Fizzytopian Form?
A.) Environmental Theme: The variant originates from a general area of Fizzytopia (broader zone terrains).

B.) Locale Theme: The variant originates from a specific sub-area of Fizzytopia (tied to specific area/locale/lore of a zone).

C.) Holiday Theme: The variant originates around a specific calendar date or period (using seasonal traditions as inspiration).
Third Prompt: What ecosystem does the Fizzytopian Form belong to?
● Arboreal Cradle – Ancient Jungle: Towering trees shading an assortment of life, hidden from society for centuries.

● Arboreal Cradle – Desolate Land: Harsh terrain devoid of life, where only those that can adapt survive.

● Arcane Realm – Medieval Castle: Royalty, Knights, and Mages all housed within cobblestone walls.

● Arcane Realm – Magical Forest: Paths of Evergreen trees accompanied by glowing mushrooms, beautiful flowers, shining lights, and low mist.

● Fizzific Ocean – Tropical Beach: Palm trees provide refuge from sun-scorched sand while a cascade of waves turns to foam.

● Fizzific Ocean – Coral Reef: An underwater menagerie of life living in harmony among colorful coral.

● New Fizz City – Urban Sprawl: A diverse and bustling metropolis spanning for miles across land and stretching way up into the clouds.

● New Fizz City – Industrial Wasteland: A forgotten network of warehouses, factories and power plants laden with decaying machinery and toxic waste.

● Unreal Archipelago – Abandoned Theme Park: Worn down machinery and torn up tents, where a dark haze covers assorted fading colors.

● Unreal Archipelago – Remote Tundra: Treacherous seas surround fields of white snow, hiding away a mountain of multi-colored ice.

This will be a ranked voting. Please rank you top five options from 1 to 5, 1 being the option you want most and 5 being the option you want 5th most.

Voting Deadline: Sunday, February 21st, 2021

Half of the reports had been sorted and filed away, but there were still many more stacks to go. “Let’s refine our search a little more,” Professor Palm began. “Start by narrowing our options down by unifying themes. Does the regional variant originate from a general area of Fizzytopia, exhibiting traits that match the terrain of the environment? Does the regional variant have traits that are more specific to a centralized locale or tie into the lore of a specific area? Or does the regional variant have traits that coincide with a more seasonal, annual occurrence in Fizzytopia?”

Second Prompt: What is the central theme of the Fizzytopian Form?
A.) Environmental Theme: The variant originates from a general area of Fizzytopia (broader zone terrains).

B.) Locale Theme: The variant originates from a specific sub-area of Fizzytopia (tied to specific area/locale/lore of a zone).

C.) Holiday Theme: The variant originates around a specific calendar date or period (using seasonal traditions as inspiration).
This will be a ranked voting. Please rank the three options from 1 to 3, 1 being the option you want most and 3 being the option you want least.

Most of the reports had been sorted and filed away, but there were still quite a few more stacks to go. “Let’s refine our search a little more,” Professor Palm began. “The most prevalent theme among these claims are environmental traits found across the ecosystem of Fizzytopia, so let’s start by narrowing down the areas to find which one is the most likely to have an accurate sighting! The most active regions across this continent have some diverse terrain so let’s narrow it down to some basic aspects.”

Third Prompt: What ecosystem does the Fizzytopian Form belong to?
● Arboreal Cradle – Ancient Jungle: Towering trees shading an assortment of life, hidden from society for centuries.

● Arboreal Cradle – Desolate Land: Harsh terrain devoid of life, where only those that can adapt survive.

It had been a long, arduous process of sorting through all of the claims, but they culminated in ten neat stacks. There was plenty of data distributed between the piles, but a few of them towered over the rest. Professor Palm scrutinized the data carefully, mulling over it as he absentmindedly uttered “Hmm…” every few moments. Once he had finished going through all of the stacks, he looked up from the work.

“Excellent work, I think I know where we need to start now. There seems to be a lot of reported sightings at the Abandoned Theme Park region of Unreal Archipelago, so I will be planning an expedition over there shortly. Thank you all for your input and I hope to hear from you again soon!” The professor smiled and nodded before burying his focus deep into the stack of reports once more.

~~~~~~~

Thank you all for participating in the planning stages of this event! If the final results of the voting were not the ones you had hoped for, fear not; these parameters will be unique to this event only. Please stay tuned as the finishing stages of the event are planned out and prepared with the formal rules and guidelines!
