Trivia / Create-a-Pokémon

Go To

  • Defictionalization: The first CAP, Syclant, would have just been hypothetical were it not that DougJustDoug opened a server to try out the Pokémon. The Create-a-Pokémon project thenceforward grew immensely in process, userbase, and recognition.
  • Fan Nickname: "Snapple", a tongue-in-cheek potential name for Malaconda, being a portmanteau of "snake" and "apple".
  • Meme Acknowledgement: While it isn't an official CAP, Chamereon's very existence as well as its Black and X/Y Pokédex entries are jabs at the memes around it.

  • Milestone Celebration: The starter trio of Caribolt, Smokomodo, and Snaelstrom was created to celebrate the 25th CAP project.
  • Name's the Same: One of the suggested names for Mollux, Escarglow, was later found to be the same as a Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Eater's name.
  • Troubled Production: Cyclohm's development could be best described as "we don't know where we're going", in contrast to the more refined process of most other CAP Pokémon.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • CAP Pokémon could have taken very different turns if the community had voted on different outcomes.
    • The top art and sprite submissions for each CAP are showcased on the Smogon website.
  • The Wiki Rule: There is a very undeveloped wiki for Create-a-Pokémon here.
