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).
The card background is no longer required, but if you wish to use it, it can be found here:
Make sure to credit Zaphk if you use it!

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!  It's been a couple months so another update is in order.  c:

Since this seems to be a growing problem lately, I would just like to take a moment to remind everyone that we do not accept submissions of regular Pokemon unless a Gijinka is pictured with them.
We've been getting a surge of submissions with normal Pokemon in them and we cannot accept them here.  We are strictly a Gijinka group, and there are plenty of other Pokemon groups around DeviantART that will take them.
If you're new to this group, please please please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Rules widget located on our profile page!

Now that that's out of the way, there has been another reveal for Generation 6: four new Pokemon have been released to the public!

- Helioptile, a dual Electric/Normal-type lizard
- Fletchling, a dual Normal/Flying-type robin (bird)
- Pancham, a Fighting-type panda
- Gogoat, a Grass-type goat with an added feature: you can ride it around in one of the cities

What are your thoughts on the new Pokemon?  Personally I'm looking forward to Pancham, I know a lot of Pokemon fans have been waiting for a Panda to finally make its' way into the game.

That's it for now!

I almost lost you guys.
Good thing I had that favorite and it was still active.
I found another case of canon gijinka.
The first was Riley, who is supposed to be Lucario.
This time around, from Kalos we have Penelope, who looks enough like her Sylveon to be the human version of her.
