Lightbulb Our Own Hack Contest

Hi! I think it would be great if we have our own Pokemon Hack Showcase but not like every year (Like PokeCommunity) but instead feature awards for Hack of the Month to give spotlight to the new and deveolping games on the forum. I say like awards can be given to you know show appreciation for the games we want and support.

The Rules could possibly be -


  • A WIP IN PROGRESS OF THE GAME MUST BE GIVEN WITH ENOUGH GAMEPLAY TO SHOW TO MEET THE GOAL.
  • The Game has to be .IPS format.
The Awards I have in mind are...



★ Best Music for a Hack (Top 3 for all) (Battle and Town Music)
★ Best Storytelling In a Hack (Overall in the game)
★ Best Appeal and Looks for a Hack (Sprites, Tiles and Overworld)
★ Best Gameplay for a Hack (Mechanics, Moves , Etc)
★ Best Design for a Hack (Map Design)


I think the winner of the contest for any gets a Banner they can put on there Thread and Like "Hack of the Month for Gameplay [Banner Here] "


I would love to see this as a poll someone can vote for each month and on a thread people can post canidates Like " I vote Pokemon DarkViolet for best appeal poll/contest"


This can be a fun way to get people to want to go here and Showcase their hack also it can give the community a way to feel like they've had a say in this contest.


So what'dda say there Guys and Gals? (^-^)

We will eventually implement something like this but we don't have enough members as of right now.

To add on to what Pia said, we did consider having a contest like this, but yeah, too few members. Once our memberbase gets up, we may consider this. We're making progress, albeit slow progress.

I would really like to see this too! It's a shame PHO doesn't have more members - I like it better than PC since it's centralized round hacking.

It's a shame but guess a PHO hacking contest wouldn't really work at this point. There aren't that many well progressed hacks here so the same ones would win all the time. Although there could be something like a "Best Newcomer" or "One to Watch" type award for the Ideas + WIP section threads?

Those could definitely be things to consider once we get there.

We will get there soon, if we present some good things that aren't on other forums.
I'd like to pull this idea off though, although it's not a "contest". Its a monthly award.

I thought about people who build a team of 2 or 3 (solo ok too xD) and work on a short hack which is showing off 1-2 cities max. The hack will be rated by the users
or a jury (depends on the site admin's thoughts about letting random users vote)
There is a point-system:

~Maps [5 pts max]
~Scripts [5 pts max]
~Graphics [5 pts max]
~ASM [10 pts max]
~Music [10 pts max]

Ofc, the hard things are worth more points than the other areas ("the real hacking")
Just my idea :P

OFFTOPIC: Why my tutorial on "Showing mugshots via ASM" gets denied?
After i post the thread it gives me a message thats speaking about URLs and shit..

As far as the members thing goes, couldn't it be advertised on the subreddit as well? I suggested it earlier and now that there are more hacks going around, we could have it featured in both places.
