About Us + Rules

*Please make sure to read this notice carefully!*

Welcome to Pokedex! We are a Group dedicated to Gijinka (human-form) Pokemon.

Membership is open, so feel free to join!

What Is A Gijinka?
From Wikipedia: "a form of anthropomorphism where Moe (human) qualities are given to non-human beings, objects, concepts, or phenomena."

We accept any art medium, whether it be drawings, photos, sculptures or fan-fiction. We do not judge based on artistic skill level (but we do need to be able to tell what Pokemon is being depicted).
Please remember to abide by DeviantART's rules as well as our own. This means all images must be either 100% yours or in the case of photo-manips, be your own photos or legal stock with proper credit. This also means no artwork made using traced bases (unless permission was given to the base maker, and we do check).

Where to Submit:

:bulletblue: All Submissions are to be submitted to the Featured Folder

What we DO allow:

:bulletgreen: Humans in Pokemon outfits (ex: Cosplay)
:bulletgreen: Anthromorphs (ex: Furries or Humans with ears and tails or Humans); this includes any Glitches from the game, such as MissingNo
:bulletgreen: Trainers with Gijinkas
:bulletgreen: Regular Pokemon with Gijinkas (ex: a Gijinka Pikachu with a regular Pikachu)
Note: Nudity is allowed, but it must be tasteful and abide by DeviantART's rules (that means NO PORN).

What we DO NOT allow:

:bulletred: Regular Pokemon (as they are depicted in the normal media)
:bulletred: Costumes on their own (ex: ideas on blank models, since they are just outfits, not actual Gijinkas)
:bulletred: Single articles of clothing (ex: hats, scarves, etc) as they do not completely fall under the definition of Cosplay
:bulletred: Trainers dressed as Pokemon (ex: Ash dressed as a Pikachu; this includes OC Trainers)
:bulletred: Fakemon (fan-made Pokemon)
:bulletred: Hybrids or Fusions; we consider them fan-made/Fakemon (ex: a Pikachu x Pachirisu hybrid that has traits of both Pokemon)
:bulletred: Crossovers (ex: Pokemon crossed with Naruto)
:bulletred: Sprite edits of official game sprites

Also as stated above, we have a zero tolerance policy on art theft. Do not submit artwork to us that you did not make unless you had permission from the original artist to do so. This includes but is not limited to: traced bases, edited official sprites (sprites submitted to the group must be made from scratch), uncredited stock resources or uncredited referenced work (copying an existing work without tracing but not getting permission to do so). We will be able to tell if your submissions are copyright violations.

Don't be afraid to Note us with any questions you may have!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the very long absence, things have been a little hectic the past few years, and I'm afraid I only have bad news. With Eclipse having rolled out fully back in 2019, the team here (as I'm sure it's been in other groups) is struggling to keep up with notifications for the group. We don't get any sort of notice when there's comments left, submissions made, anything. The group pages also look exactly the same prior to Eclipse rolling out and I don't know if they'll ever get updated to match the rest of the site. A lot of features are still pretty broken.
So for the time being, I would like to formally put this group on hiatus until further notice. It's been a long journey and a lot of fun, but until DA fixes group functionality there's not much we can do. :(
I do hope that for those that have gotten the Diamond and Pearl remakes are enjoying them! I'm probably going with Pearl but have to wait until after the holidays. I'm also very much looking forward to Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
For those of you that still play Pokemon Go, feel free to add me! 0970 7174 7541 I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday season!

Hey, make sure you set your group admin permissions to "Subject to Vote" or "Are Not Allowed". There has been two notorious group hijackers for over a month now who apply as a co-founders, delete all the artwork in the gallery and favorites, and replace it with gore, scat and porn.
As an example:…
(the disgusting stuff has since been removed, but the galleries have been completely wiped out)
