The Pokémon Anime Rules
After all these years we continue to follow Ash and Pikachu as they travel through the world of Pokémon. Meeting new friends and competing in new things, Ash has always been the one to follow how things work, or at least a majority of the time he does. Taking him as the focal point of the Pokémon Anime, we should follow in his footsteps. Or in short, just follow these simple rules and procedures for the Pokémon Anime forum.

The Rules
▪ Above all, please note that the PokéCommunity Rules (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=242861) do apply here. Failure to follow them may lead to a given warning or infraction. This ranges from Character Limit Bypass, Disrespect to members, Censor Bypassing, etc.

▫ Linking to an outside site that displays the Pokémon Anime illegally is strictly prohibited- except for legal sites that do provide them (i.e. The Official Pokémon Site, TV Tokyo, Cartoon Network, etc). One who chooses to do so will be given an infraction for providing Illegal Material [4 points]. However, you are welcome to post a short clip that is no longer than 5 minutes to support an argument, answer a question, etc. -Illegal music files from the anime such as MP3s are also prohibited.
▪ Asking for outside websites to provide you with episodes of the Pokémon Anime or Movies is also not tolerated here. First attempt will be followed with a warning. Second Attempt will be followed with a given infraction [4 points].

▪ Episode discussion threads are excused from the 30-Day Revival rule. While it's a rare case that episode discussions are ever revived, it is still note worthy so a duplicate thread isn't made about the same thread.
- For the Best Wishes saga, we have begun to compile an episode index for both the Dubbed titles and Japanese titles. The indexes will be found within the Episode Index (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=7586919&postcount=2) sticky in the Episode Discussion forum. First post being for the dubbed titles and second being for the Japanese titles to avoid beforehand spoilers.▫ While making a thread pertaining something that has happened only in the Japanese anime please use the spoilers prefix. For example, let's say Ash just a caught a new Pokemon in the Japanese anime. If someone where to make a thread regarding that, it would include the spoilers prefix.

General Character Discussion
▫General Character Discussion (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=299718): Essentially the PA DCC. GCD houses the chit-chatty topics that wouldn't do well as a thread, shipping debates, and general discussion that doesn't really fit anywhere. Try to comment on the current active topic, but feel free to bring up anything relevant that's on your mind.

As we continue following Ash and Pikachu's journey across the many regions that magically appear over time, I hope we will continue to follow these rules and procedures. However, as time goes by things can change, so please keep in mind that these rules may be subjected to change whenever need be; depending on the present moderator of Pokémon Anime.

If you may have any questions or concerns, please feel free to PM any staff member.

Thank you,
Your Pokémon Anime Moderator
