Pokemon Clubs Rules

Welcome to the Pokémon Clubs forum! This is the forum where the real Pokémon fanboys and fangirls of various aspects of the Pokémon fandom can gather, scream and squeal on all the latest happenings in their Pokemon addictions, which we all know is what keeps them running day-to-day. Whether you're looking to make new friends that share your interests, learn new things about a topic you're interested in, or if you'd just like to sit back and chat about certain aspects of Pokemon, this is the perfect section for you! We hope to see you around and posting tonnes, but first off make sure you give the rules a quick read! c:


  • All Forum Wide Rules apply.
  • Only Pokémon based Clubs are permitted in this forum. If your club isn’t related to Pokémon, please create it in Other Clubs.
  • When posting in a club the club's individual rules must be followed at all times.
  • No trolling/flaming/disrespecting of any members in any club, regardless of opposing viewpoints on a topic or otherwise.
  • When signing up to a club, feel free to answer the current topic to better integrate yourself. This is completely optional though, unless it is included in the club's sign-up form, or specifically stated in the club's rules.
  • As a note to that, it'd be nice if owners would include an "Answer to the current topic" field somewhere in their sign-up form so that it's more likely that these kind of posts are made.
  • All clubs must contain at minimum an introduction and sign-up form (or alternative method of signing up to the club) to be approved, and are urged to contain extra content to remain interesting. If you intend to create a club without a sign-up form/member list, please contact the section's moderators with details first.
  • Do not join a club just to be negative. They're called fan clubs because people join to discuss the good things about the club, not to diss it. c:
  • Please try and keep posts somewhat detailed and stay in line with the club's topic. In other words, don't spam!
  • Owners may own as many clubs as they like, but a moderator may give someone a limit if they do not update clubs regularly.
  • Clubs that already have a specific forum are not permitted as there are already places to discuss these topics.
  • Clubs must not be too specific! For example a club just based on Hoppip would be rejected; the club would instead have to be made based on the whole Hoppip evolutionary line. The only exception to this is Pokémon which do not fit with any other families, for example Absol (Pokémon like Zangoose and Seviper would need to be grouped together).
  • When submitting a new club, the thread may take up to 48 hours before approval and may be revoked if it fails to meet the requirements of a club. Check the Grand-Master Thread for an up-to-date list of approvals/rejections!
  • Ownership of a club may be transferred if an owner has been inactive in the club for an extended period of time, or upon the owner's request.
  • Owners may double post if they've been the last poster for 1 week+ however this may only be done twice in a row, otherwise they'll have to wait for others to post.
  • Strictly no linking to illegal material. This includes Pokemon anime episodes, illegal ROMS, and anything of the like, regardless of whether it applies to the club; any posting of illegal material will not be tolerated.
  • Upon reaching 1 month without any new posts, a club will be considered dead, and is no longer eligible for new posts. The clubs will usually be closed at some point after the one month has passed, to prevent people from posting in the clubs afterwards, but if you find ones that aren't, simply don't post in them.
  • Most of all, enjoy the section. That's the reason you're here of course! c:

Obviously you should be posting in and creating clubs for fun and because you want to, not just for rewards, but here's a little extra incentive; a sample of some of the many emblems you may end up with from Pokemon Clubs!

Questions or Concerns?

If you have any questions, concerns or feedback about the Pokemon Clubs section then don't hesitate to contact the resident moderators.
