: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.

if you simply want to watch the group.

Just curious, but would you accept pokemon fusion pieces? Of two canon pokemon "fused" together, or would that fall under fakemon?

We don't accept fusions, they do fall under fakemons in our rules

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.
