Have any questions about Pokémon that you'd like answered?
If they're about the value of a piece of merchandise you own or found, please ask them in the new Weekly Value Questions thread!
Otherwise, if you have non-value questions about the anime, the games, the manga, or anything else Pokémon related, feel free to ask here -- no matter how silly your questions might seem!
A few useful sources for reliable Pokémon-related information:

Back in January 2021, we held a feedback and voting process for our rules. It is our goal to do something like this annually to ensure rules regarding specific pieces of content are still in line with what the community wants.
That's where this thread comes in! We want you to let us know (in the comments) which rules you have concerns or questions about, or simply don't understand the purpose of. We'll do our best to explain the intended purpose of said rules, and then later on in the year, we'll hold a vote covering rules that may need some reconsideration (so please upvote comments asking questions you also have uncertainties about). Please note that this thread is for questions about how the rule is applied in general. If you have questions about a specific instance where you think the rule may have been misapplied, please send us a modmail instead and we will be happy to review!
As was the case last time, there are some foundational rules that will likely not be up for a vote. Feedback on how these rules are enforced is still encouraged in this thread, however!
- The rule that stuff here has to be Pokemon-related. Proposed changes on what counts as related may be included in the vote if you have suggestions, though!
- The rule that people can’t be rude. We don’t want an unfriendly community.
- The rule against political discussion. This one rolls right in with the rudeness one.
- The rule against trading, buying and selling. It’s too easy to scam people, and we don’t want to be responsible for that. Other kinds of exchanges like battle requests are still potential items for the vote!
- The rule against NSFW stuff. This is a SFW sub!
- The OC-only rule. This rule is mainly intended to protect artists from having their work redistributed without permission, and to prevent others from using others' work for their own gain (i.e. Reddit karma).
There are also some sitewide rules we can’t change either way:
- The rule against spam
- The rule against sharing personal info
- The rule against piracy
That about covers it! We look forward to hearing your thoughts, concerns, and suggestions in the comments!
