Want to affiliate with us? Then have a read of our 'Welcome' box! c:

Welcome to Pokemon Professors!

Hello! If you show an enthusiastic interest in the inner workings of the pokemon world and have, or want to have, a talent for scientific literature and illustrations then this is certainly the place for you!

Where to Start?

Simply click "Join this Group". It's that simple and you can start submitting straight away.

If you wish to be more ingrained in the group, and will be an active member, send the group a note with the subject line "Become Professor" and we'll move you up to this very rank. You'll also need to have completed (and submitted) a PP application and a pokemon report which you'll need to link us to.

If you want to merge with the inner-workings of the group, send a note to the group entitled "League Adviser" and tell us a little about you such as your available time, experience and why and what you can do for the group.

To recieve a ranking within the group, just fill out this application and send it into the group. It'll be up to you to keep it updated with all your wonderous achievements.

But before you get too ahead of yourself, please thoroughly read through the Submission Guidelines and remember them when you submit any deviations to the group.

On Affiliations:

To send us an affiliation request, just go to your group's page, click the 'affiliate' button and type 'PokemonProfessors'. Easy!

As a rule of thumb, we'll affiliate with any open, active AND established* group with a Pokemon and/or Science theme. If you're unsure, leave a comment in the affiliation request. :)
*At least a week old, with regular activity in recent times.

Please, if you have any questions, feel free to send a note to the group or leave a comment below and we will get back to you as soon as we can. :D
Please do not send notes about the group to admin's personal accounts.

If you are asking about a declined submission/request, please comment on that instead.
Applications are now closed and are being considered by the admin team.
Thanks to all those who applied and continue to be interested in our group!

PokemonProfessors is seeking a Gallery Moderator to help us manage and filter incoming submissions.

Basically we'd like to ask 5-10 minutes of your time every other day or so, just to check if there's any submissions to our gallery, make sure they meet our Submission Guidelines and be able to answer general questions about what goes where please.

This is a voluntary role and shouldn't be more than 30 minutes over a week if you're just checking your message centre. You'll have plenty of help available from the rest of the team too.

The only requirement is to regularly check dA.
It will be an advantage to have experience modding in other groups, a love for pokemon or appreciation of science.(Then again, if you're here reading this, you likely already check one or two of those boxes haha)

I'm happy to answer any questions here, though if you're interested please send a note to PokemonProfessors with the following:
  • Your name
  • A short introduction. Tell us about your love of Pokemon! or science! or Both!
  • Roughly, how organised would you say your message centre is?
  • A brief summary of any other dA groups you've modded for, and what your role there was.
  • Anything else you'd like to add that you think would be helpful!

Hi um this might sound like a strange question but do you except photos of Pokemon Plushies?
icytemporalist Featured By Owner May 5, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Hrm... not usually. Given our realism / science theme, it'd have to be done in a way that meets our Submission Guidelines.

Hand crafted pieces while impressive, usually don't fall under that unless they're, say, being used as a prop to explain part of a report. Thanks for asking though!

hey there, to avoid hiccups this time, figured i'd get some clarification first. Looking to submit a piece focusing on basic body type and size observations and i'm not sure specifically which category that falls under.. I wanna say anatomy? :'D Sentret + Furret: Size and Length by Chari-Artist
icytemporalist Featured By Owner Edited Feb 25, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi there Chari!

Yup, that's a-ok!

Thanks for waiting!

Edit: (As in, Anatomy is the right folder for that piece. If in doubt, have a browse of the folders and see if there's similar art therein haha)

Thanks for confirming that, I've got no problem with waiting when it comes to stuff like this. xD
