if you simply want to watch the group.

*Note that a 2 week waiting period will be put into effect if you send in a member application with no artwork and get auto-rejected.
**Our standards for acceptable cosplay are a bit higher than the art standards, as we take both photo quality and costume quality into consideration.

For the longest time those of us currently modding for PKMNDaily have been strictly sticking to the rules and regulations set forth by the original group founders! However, we notice every day that the fandom grows ever more creative and continues to wow us! With so many new ideas and cool things added into the pokemon world, we know we need to move WITH it, or get left behind! We certainly don't want the latter! So we will be revising and revisiting some rules we've had here since the founding of the group and adding some amendments as well! If any of you guys have some additional suggestions for us, PLEASE let us know! We do appreciate and encourage your feedback always! 

Fusions, variants and crosses oh my! 

Before any confusion sets in we want to go ahead and make a statement; we will continue to say "No fakemon". While we appreciate some of the immaculate fan made pokes out there (hello pokemon sage, oh how I love you so), we are a "Fan art" group. However; we ARE implementing some new folders and some new topics to the group! I know the suspense is killing you so we'll get too it! Everyone's idea of what a cross/fusion/variant is can vary person to person. So here are our definitions of the following + what we will accept into our group!

Crossbreeds / Fusions of 2 or More Pokemon
A crossbreed would be a MIX of two (or more) existing official pokemon or mega pokemon. Crosses combine them in such a way that you know what two pokemon (or more) are present and it's tastefully done. The "Pokemon Sprite fusions" meme falls into this category. The most important thing that we will look for in these is that the features of the Pokemon in the crossbreed/fusion/variant are there - We will not accept fusions that do not obviously have the traits of the Pokemon used in the fusion.

Here are some examples of what we would consider a crossbreed/fusion:
FUSION TIME by vaporotem Tyrantrum Crossbreed by darksilvaniaPokemon Crossbreeds: Mareep, Flaaffy, and Ampharos by cocoaferret maractus variations by extyrannomon

Pokemon Variations:
These are less about fusing Pokemon together and more about the possibilities of what could naturally occur in a single Pokemon. Some examples of this are the variation in the patterning of a Pokemon, varying the anatomy of a Pokemon to fit a different climate, changing the plant inspiration of the Pokemon (like using a different kind of mushroom on the back of a Paras), and many more! The idea of this is "what if this Pokemon evolved differently, what if it lived in a different area or a different climate?" A great canon example of this are the East and West Shellos and how their designs have taken on different forms based on where they are located:…

Here are some examples of what we would consider a Pokemon variant:
Pokemon Variants 5 by WendyMartinTogekiss Variations by CoryKatze comm - Roggenrola Variations by CoryKatze Poochyena Variations by PrincessHarumi


You can now submit Pokemon fanart to our group that follows the above examples / our definitions of what a Pokemon crossbreed/fusion/variant is! They will only be accepted if they are placed in the correct folder - the Fusion and Variants folder, located here:… We will not be accepting individual fusion/variant Pokemon to our other group folders, so please do submit them to the correct folder! And since this is a quality-based group, we will still be judging your submissions based on the creativity and skill put into your artworks when you are submitting the group (as well as making sure that they follow what we consider to be a fusion/variant!)

Just curious, but would you accept pokemon fusion pieces? Of two canon pokemon "fused" together, or would that fall under fakemon?
OrcaOwl Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2015  Student Digital Artist
We've revised the rules now to accept fusions! Journal here:

OrcaOwl Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015  Student Digital Artist
We don't accept fusions, they do fall under fakemons in our rules 
ChatterFox Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2015  Professional Digital Artist

Are Pokemon OCs allowed as long as they follow the rules?
OrcaOwl Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015  Student Digital Artist
We allow OCs that still look like the original Pokemon - so like a pikachu with a scarf or a bit of hair fluff is fine, but a blue pikachu or one with spots is not acceptable for the group. If you could imagine the OC actually being in the anime it's probably ok
