No, I don't "measure" creativity, it's more of a... well, general thing. If you have a great concept, then it's a plus, you know? Whereas if it's something more generic (whatever that may be) it won't be as highly valued, but maybe the executionis still brilliant? It really depends. Just do your best. <:
Actually, I have a question that would help. Are Pokemon generally considered the same species? I know the anime canon is yes, but you don't typically follow that. Real life is confusing as well-- a species is defined as a group of similar-looking creatures that can interbreed. Pokemon have breeding groups.
Ehh, no, I'm not setting any standards. Obviously, it should ideally be of a certain quality, but as long as it's quality work, three sentences or four paragraphs don't matter. Just send in the best you can do.
