:bulletgreen: Yes, we do accept cross overs! Please bare in mind, the pokemon MUST be the main theme in the image. Example: Pikachu in a link costume, this would be accepted. However; link with a pokeball and Ash Ketchum's hat would not be acceptable.

>> We do not accept:

:bulletred: Unfinished, Copied [via Stamps, Memes, Bases or Traces], Plagiarized Pieces will be denied. No questions asked.

:bulletred: Fakemon, Anthros and Gijinkas will also be denied

Keep in mind you do not need to be a member
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.

Are Pokemon OCs allowed as long as they follow the rules?

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

Ok, great, thank you. I was wondering because I have a seadra character who wears a hat and scarf, but other than that she's normal.

I was wondering; there are no anthros allowed in the group so obviously, any pokemon that have been made human-shape and with clothes and such like would not be allowed.
However, in my comic - and the artwork based on my comic - I don't have any of that. The pokemon are still naked but they stll talk and act human-like, with some quadruped pokemon standing on two feet. This is probably a good example of what I mean.

Anyway, I was wondering what sort of 'level' you'd consider anthro, whether anything featuring pokemon talking or doing humanlike things would be allowed, or whether they have to be properly animal-like.

In the picture you linked, I'd say the braxien would be the only one who is acceptable level anthro for the group, but that's also helped by the Pokemon being anthro-like in its normal Pokemon form anyway. The furfrou would be the extreme for not acceptable level anthro because of its entire anatomy being changed, it looks more like and anthro then like a dog standing on two legs, for example.

You can have the Pokemon talking and doing human-like things, but to the extent that Pokemon do things like that in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games - they talk and have houses and such, but still have the same anatomy and retain their 'Pokemoness', if that makes sense.

I see, thank you. I kind of figured the furfou wouldn't count most of all.
I'll be sure to bear this in mind when I someday try out, thanks! >-u-<

Well I forgot to post images in the request, pressed join button too fast since I was joining 5 other pokemon groups too.  Got caught up with the others not having a submission requirement to join. xD

(I read you have to wait 4 months to re-apply, I was complaining about that since that's a really long wait and such)

Ahh yeah sorry!
Four months is just for people who don't pass ART requirements because they need improvement, we understand that people need TIME to improve on something like art, and four months is adequate for that. If you just genuinely fucked up your join request you may resend it with links this time.
