Original Character Fan Art Submissions

I don't know what it is about Pokemon, but it is one anime that I just don't like to see fan-produced characters from.

Naturally, when the Version Vibrant feature of filtering 'Series' or 'Fan' characters was revealed, I was more than optimistic. It can be accurately said that I removed myself from my chair and did something of a victory dance.
But, alas, 'original characters' are showing up through the filters.

How hard is it to check a little box in the submission page, fellow Otakuites?
I think it's a common courtesy to accurately fill out the forms.

Also, I'm of the opinion that Pokemon converted to humans should be considered fan characters as well.

If you disagree, or agree (the thought!?), I welcome and encourage discussion.
