FAQ & Rules

BEFORE YOU JOIN, YES YOU! Before joining make sure to read our rules and FAQ! Linked below is our FAQ and folders desc.
If you do not read the rules AND THE FAQ LINKED BELOW we will not accept your membership request!

This club is to honor all Pokémon trainers around the world, near and far, official and original, etc! =D

Here, you can submit fan art of the more 'well known' Pokémon trainers and your very own fan characters, team rocket, and every human character in the series!

Everyone who loves Pokémon and the trainers included in the series are more than welcome to join!


1. No pokémon only- or pokémon gijinka pictures.
This is a group mainly for pokémon trainers, but we also accept artwork of breeders/gymleaders/team rocket and ever other human character you can think of from the pokémon series.

2. 100% your own work!
Which means no base dolls/recolors/remade pkmn sprites or anything like that.

3. No fetish/porn/nude pictures!
Please try to keep it within DA rules, people in swimsuits/bikinis, couples kissing, even two characters in bed snuggling is okay just keep it clean

4. No black and white pictures.
We only want your best work so do not send of doodles/sketches/lineart, they will get turn down at once unless it's the most epic sketches/lineart/doodle you have ever made.

5.Post in the right folder.
If you are unsure in which folder you are suppose to submit your artwork to just ask the Elite/ Team Rocket grunts or read the FAQ which you can find here: pkmn-trainers-united.deviantar…

6. When joining use the secret word!.
The word is hidden somewhere here in the rules and FAQ Folder Information, if you do not give us the secret word in your request it will be denied. Don't worry, we will give you more chances to find it and join, just try the first time!

7. Three strikes and your out.
We have had to many people skimming the rules and FAQ just so they can join and not actually read them. From here on out we will implement a three strike policy. If we notice that you are a problem submitter we will keep track of how many times you misplace something. (Meaning you have to do this at least three times before we keep track.) And will have to revoke permissions to submit until you re-read the FAQ and folders.
So really this is a six strike and your out.

To join just click on the join button, and tell us the secret phrase in your join request! The word can be found somewhere in the FAQ and rules!:dummy:

But before you hit that join button please read through our ground rules and FAQ journal
We have had to tell to many people to do this. It's on the front page no less than six times. You will be denied with no reason given. We do not have time to constantly tell you to read the front page when it's plain and in your face. If you apply twice without giving the secret word or at least attempting you will not be accepted at all.
( pkmn-trainers-united.deviantar… )

We will know when you have. ;)

I'm sorry to all, but it seems that certain art has been accepted into our group that do not fit our rules and to make it fair to all the other members. I am truly sorry and feel just terrible about this. Please all MODS and MEMBERS read the rules, we desperately ask you to do this to avoid this very thing and do not take it lightly! I really do not want to, but I may have to start logs of rule violators and hand out bans.
I really do no want to do this but we only have two active mods and both lead very busy lives, and as no one is willing to volunteer.
READ THE RULES, and submit to the proper folder PLEASE so I do not have to start this.
