I know, I know, Christmas has come and gone this year. BUT - the 12 days of Christmas live one (funnily enough, 12 days after Christmas), so we can still sing this classic carol.

This year, however, we want to give it a little twist. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, will be to write a Pokémon version of the 12 Days of Christmas! It can be anything you like, so long as it follows the same tune and basic song layout.

The Original Carol

For your referencing purposes, this is how the carol is set out:

"The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by "my true love" on one of the twelve days of Christmas.

The first verse runs:

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

The second verse:

On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

The third verse begins to show some metrical variance, as explained below:
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

...and so forth, until the last verse:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords-a-Leaping
9 Ladies Dancing
8 Maids-a-Milking
7 Swans-a-Swimming
6 Geese-a-Laying
5 Gold Rings
4 Colly Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

For Participating

A few other things...

You must submit your carols by Private Message only to either Kip or Tribal Ebony (look above for profile links). Be sure to set 'Twelve Days Competition' as the subject.


You can submit your entry in any form you like, either by writing out the whole carol, or by simply posting the last verse ("On the twelfth day of Christmas...") which contains each of the lines we need. We will post the winning entries in full when the time comes.


Entries will close on the 1st January at 22:00 PST (2 Jan 06:00 GMT) and will be judged by myself and Tribal Ebony. We will announce the results on the 2nd January 3rd January (There's been so many entries we need a little longer to decide - sorry for the wait!).


You may use this thread to ask any questions or share ideas. Bear in mind however that whatever is posted here is fair game - it is a competition after all. If you want to discuss ideas with other users we suggest you do it privately as to prevent them from getting stolen.


Collaborations are allowed, however you must credit anyone else who helped put your carol together. If you get one of the top three, you will all receive the emblem.


It doesn't have to rhyme. It's a folk song - folks songs don't have to rhyme so long as they sound good. Don't feel restricted - be creative!


A note on pronunciation. I'm fully aware that certain Pokémon names may be pronounced differently (classic example: Pidgeot can be pronounced "Pid-jee-ott" or "Pid-jit") or because the English names have not been spoken yet (select Generation IV and Generation V). Try to keep to the pronunciation that we hear in the anime, so we have a standard we can refer to. * (See below for details).


Bear in mind that with a limited carol such as this other people's ideas may be similar to yours (e.g. one line is the same). While there is a limited amount of leeway, theft of ideas or trying to pass up someone else's idea as your own is strictly prohibited. ANYONE CAUGHT BLATANTLY STEALING OTHER PEOPLE'S WORK WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND REFERRED TO A MODERATOR.

Good Luck and have fun! Hope your Christmas was a blast and a Happy New Year to All!

* Fan-made pronunciations often arising before the Pokémon's debut in the anime will cause problems in trying to fit it in with the carol. E.g. one of the pre-debut pronunciations for Suicune was "Su-ic-cine" - when it appeared in the anime, it was pronounced "Swee-cune". However, sometimes the anime itself can be inconsistent (the aforementioned Pidgeot one) - in these cases, try to stick to the more widely accepted ones (in this case "Pid-jee-ott"). If in doubt, specify in your PM how you intend it to be pronounced.

Yay it is up! I will participate, buut if we use gen V can we write a pronunciation guide down the bottom, eg

Kum-a-shun
Goch-i-mu

Since I have not seen any gen V anime as of yet. So basically any stuff that has alternate ways of pronunciation, can we write the way we pronounce it at the bottom?

By all means, do so. ^^ There is also the slight complication that not all of the English names for Gen V have been released; so especially for Gen V we really need to know how you would pronounce it in the carol.

So long as it fits with the carol tune it's OK - doesn't have to be precise. It's all a bit of fun. The way it fits is just one, small judging factor - there's also style and creativity and the like. ^^

Just to confirm, the entries we have received since my last post are:

Destiny Demon
dragonite149

Keep 'em coming guys ^^ Remember, you have until 10 PM tomorrow (PST, 6AM GMT Sunday) to get your entries in!

January 2nd, 2011, 03:11 PM
There has been so many good entries, we're going to have to postpone our decision until tomorrow. Look on it as a good sign that your work was so good we're having a little difficulty deciding which should be crowned the best. :)

We are going to be judging the entries based on originality, creativity, and the way it fits to the carol's tune. Once we have made our decision, we will post the winning carols in full (regardless of whether they were submitted in full or not), and the winners will receive their emblems. You have all been guaranteed a Participation emblem (which features the Team Rocket Ensemble Choir ^^ ), so those will wend their way to you as soon as the admins tell us how to get them to you. :P

Thank you all so much for your entries and making this event so good. If this New Year Get-Together goes ahead next year (or should I say this year?), we hope to run it once again.

Happy New Year! :mudkip^_^:

On the twelve days of Halloween my true devil said to me

Finally.

The moment has come.

I feel I must say a few things. First of all, there's been a slight communications difficulty between myself and Tribal Ebony, the co-judge of this event). I'm sure it's not her fault (no hate mail spammers :P ), but it has resulted in my judging this contest on my own. I know it's a horrifying prospect ^^' but there it is.

I must also say that this competition has been incredibly hard to judge. It's taken me three solid hours (without food or anything) to whittle it down to the ones I would consider the best. The amount of thought that has gone into many of these left me with 12 shining candidates which I felt I could not say no to. But still, this is the preverbal it. I made the decision, and my decision is hidden in this lovely Spoiler. Open it, if you dare...

So, based on style, control, damage and aggression... no wait, that's Robot Wars. Hey! Anyone from the UK remember Robot Wars? Craig Charles was epic, and so was Razer and Hypnodisc (Razer was the KING though - sooo goooood). Never was the same when it stopped broadcasting on BBC Two and moved to Channel 5. :\ Kinda sucked with all the advert breaks, which of course you don't get on the BBC channels...

Sorry, am I rambling? You're probably not reading this before you clicked the spoiler, am I right? You're reading this afterwards, having scrolled right down to click the damn thing. I've spent all this time on the build up and you've just gone and skipped it. Honestly, how are you going to appreciate how hard it was to judge this thing if you just skip the paragraphs of heart-felt text just to skip to the raw facts? Well I suppose I'd better get on with it then. :P

So, based on originality, overall creativity and it's fitting with the song, and all now formatted by moi so they can be sung, I give you the Holy Hand Grenade Spoiler Tag:

Tying in 3rd Place, it's...

Well, there we have it. You're emblems will be on their way as soon as the Admins can be bothered. :P

I feel I must say that, if 4th place means anything, it would have to go jointly with Air Pichu and Destiny Demon. They were also really creative.

Plus a very close 5th would go to Bluerang1 and his Pokémon Bland & White-inspired carol. Well done there too.


Well, that's that. You should all be very pleased with yourselves - like I said, it was incredibly difficult choosing the winners (coming up for 3AM now here :P ) and all the entries I received had their own charm and uniqueness. Well done to all of you. Also, I want to say thanks. This event simply wouldn't have happened if it weren't for you guys, so thank you so very much for taking the time to write your carols. :mudkip^_^:

Hope the New Year brings joy and all that stuff to you all! And remember, come Christmas next year (or should I say this year), have a go at singing our little PokéCarols!

… say, that sounds like another event idea! ^^ See you around!

Aww I didn't get a place! Oh well it was incredibly fun and congrats on the guys that won! Especially Alternative, I loved that first line 'Team Rocket Stole From Me' :P

Thank you Kip for hosting this event, you did a great job of it :)

I JUST SENT KIP THE SCORES I DID!

:( SAD FACE.
I didn't get credit at all for co-hosting the event with Kip.

*cries*
But anyways, congratulations to the winners. Just to let you know, the people who participated will also get an emblem! So no need to feel left out!

Sorry Tribal Ebony. Anyway, congratulations to the winners! Yay, I got 5th with my "Bland and White" poem xD

I wanna know the results if Tribal's scores were to be added.

Wow, I came in second! Congratulations to all of the other winners and competitors!

I would also like to know what the results were if Tribal Enemy's votes would have counted (whether or not my position changes). It would be interesting to see if there were any major differences between the two judges.

Same. Especially since I didn't try to make mine funny or anything. But to be honest, I love the Johto gym leaders most, so I'm happy with 3rd o3o

Also, @dragonite149: Pidove is the English name for Mamepato, the Pidgey of 5th gen. I'm guessing that was directed at me 'cause Bendino didn't have Pidove in his(?) entry XD;

What? How did I come across as mean? The only thing I can see was that I said Tribal Enemy as opposed to Tribal Ebony (which was an honest mistake, it was like 2 am)

I think you are being a little dramatic :/ he just made a typo and asked what the results would have been if your scores were added :x

dragonite:-- Pidove is the English name for Mamepato
