Want to join?
Read the following rules BEFORE requesting to join:

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: Please use the Join our Group button located at the top to apply.

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: Link to at least 3 Pokemon related deviations for review in the comment section of the join request. If you do not submit pokemon related artwork for review, your join request will be automatically rejected

(please do not send thumbnails; links are fine). If your application is rejected*, there will be a 4 month waiting period before you can reapply.

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: We will also provide reasons/critique if requested.

DO NOT leave a comment on the front page regarding join requests, because it WILL NOT be answered.

Want to Submit Art?
Read the following rules BEFORE submitting work to us:

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: Gallery submissions should be a polished piece of Pokemon Fanart that you could happily show family members and friends without shame on Quality, Subject Matter and Critique.

:bulletgreen: :bulletgreen: At the moment, we accept all of the following mediums: Digital/Traditional artwork, Comics/Flash, Artisan Crafts (including cosplay)**

: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

:bulletred: Must be an Original piece, using references is ok as long as you don't blatantly copy Official Art/Fanart.

:bulletred: Any hint of Sexualized, Fetishist, Vulgar, or Risque pieces will be denied. No questions asked.

:bulletred:Trainers that are not canon without pokemon, trainers are only accepted if they have pokemon featured with them.

:bulletred: Literature

:bulletred: Advertisements

:bulletred: Screen shots, shiny pokemon or not.

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.

Thank you everyone who participated in this year's PokemonDaily Secret Santa! All the pictures have been sent out (sans a few that are coming within the next few days) and they all look wonderful :heart:

It was a difficult task managing everything and sending everything out ahaa but I really enjoyed running this thing this year and planning it with the other admins. Thank you Spikie and Whitefeathur who are our two Santa's helpers who will be doing the make-up pictures for those who did not yet receive a picture and thank you to Taddle and Lucky-phantom for helping plan this thing with me and Riley.

You are now free to post the picture you drew to your main deviantart gallery as well as PokemonDaily's folder titled "Secret Santa". Both members and watchers will be able to submit their picture there.

EDIT: if you are a watcher and would like your picture added to the folder please send us a note with the link to the picture and we will add it

Important: please upload your picture through your original file that you sent to me/the group!That way, the links will redirect to the deviation once it has been officially uploaded.

Thank you again for participating and we hope to see you again next year! Happy holidays from all of us at PD! :santa:

Check out all the wonderful pictures in the folder here:…

4 month waiting period....really lol ._.

I can see a day or a week, but that's just way too much....

We usually accept or deny things within a day or two! I have NO idea why anything you've sent in has taken that long... can you link us th image? 
iSapphirus Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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)
Whitefeathur Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
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.

We ask people who would like to join to provide 3 pokemon-related artworks in their join application. If they are rejected, the 4 month period gives them enough time to hone their skills and create more new artworks for re-application if they would like to.

I do admit I pressed request a bit too fast since I was joining 5 others the same time in tabs, but yeah...4 months might not remember the group by then. But ok... ._.

Hey there! A few days ago I submitted my drawing… and it got declined. And I wanted to ask why?
I'm not complaining and completely accept your decision! I'd just like to know the reasons so I can try to do better next time :>
