Scarlet and Violet CAP C&C Index

If you are new to C&C and analysis writing standards, read these before posting:

Welcome to the official Sword and Shield CAP Analysis Reservation Thread! Here, you may reserve analyses for Pokemon that you are knowledgeable about and wish to contribute an analysis for.

Always use the CAP SmogDex sets for each Pokemon in your analysis. If you have doubts that the set listed is the best one to write about, please message the QC team and we will discuss further.

Reservation Rules
  • You may reserve up to two analyses at a time, as long as the writer requesting to reserve this many is deemed responsible enough by QC to handle this many at once. Quality Control members may reserve more than this limit, but are still expected to complete their analyses in a timely manner.
  • Additional reservations cannot be made until your current analyses are posted and in the written stage.
  • Post in this thread with your analysis reservations. Pay attention to the posts in front of you in case the list is not updated.
  • Do not edit your posts in this thread after an extended period of time. Double post if you wish to unreserve your Pokemon or select another one instead.
  • If a Pokemon is not on the reservation list and you strongly believe it deserves a CAP Metagame analysis, post in this thread with a thorough explanation as to why and the Quality Control team will address it. For now we will be focussing on getting all CAPs an SS analysis, after that we may consider other Pokemon.
  • If you are a new writer: you may be asked to provide the standard set for the Pokemon you reserved, as well as a two-sentence general overview of the Pokemon, in order for the QC Team to get an idea of your knowledge about the Pokemon & general writing ability before your analysis is approved.
Analysis Thread Tags

When you post your thread, please use the appropriate tags for each stage of the analysis:

[Work in Progress]: The skeleton is incomplete and is not ready for the QC Team to evaluate. Keep in mind that the longer your analysis stays in WIP stage, the greater the chance of it being reassigned. Do not be lazy.

[Quality Control]:
In the thread title, include [QC 0/2]. The analysis is complete in bullet point form and now needs to seek approval by the QC Team. Make sure you update the thread title with the number of QC checks you currently have. Once you receive one check from the QC team, the analysis must be written up in order to receive its second. Do not write up the analysis before getting a QC check either.

[Grammar-Prose]: In the set title, remove [QC 2/2] and include [GP 0/1]. The two required QC approvals have been met. The Grammar-Prose team now takes over. When you are ready for a GP check, please post in the Grammar-Prose Queue with a link to your analysis. Preview analyses only require 1 GP check.

[Done]: After the analysis gets the GP stamp, the analysis is ready for upload.

Please update your thread's tags and stamp number as you move along the process.

Reservation List

After reserving a Pokemon, you must post your analysis in a timely fashion. Your analysis thread must be up in 72 hours (3 days) or your reservation will be dropped. If you have any extenuating circumstances that prevent you from getting up your thread within this time frame, please notify an active member of the QC team. Pokemon analyses will be categorized under the following headings:
  • Unreserved: The Pokemon has yet to be claimed.
  • Reserved / In Progress: The Pokemon is claimed by someone, the analysis has been posted, and is going through the writing process.
  • Completed: The Pokemon's analysis is complete and is awaiting upload.
