• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

ATTENTION: Regarding the posting of Japanese characters and translators

The Possibly Fake

Hello Everynyan!
Unfortunately, a problem has occurred with the forums in regards to the posting of Japanese characters. Sometimes, when Japanese characters are included in a post it turns the post "invisible" - when you view it in a thread, it looks like the post has no text at all but if you edit or quote it, you can see the text. So in the mean time, we ask that users who wish to post Japanese text post it as an image instead (Write it out elsewhere and post a Print Screen of it) as this problem does not affect image files.

Also, there is something I wish to say in regards to translators. I would like to remind people that the users who translate things for us (be they CoroCoro scans, articles in magazines, websites or whatnot) are doing so during their free time and are doing it out of their own generosity, so we should be grateful to them. We may not always agree with what the text they are translating says, but they are merely translating it and they deserve nothing but our respect and gratitude for doing so.

So to sum it up:
I) Don't post Japanese characters - post images of them instead.
II) Be respectful towards our translators.

I thank you all for your understanding,
