Species: pokémon (species)

A tag specifically for actual Pokémon that ignores things like symbols and paraphernalia.

Use this tag for things like:

This is not an exhaustive list, but simply some examples of when this tag should apply.

This tag should not be used for images that don't depict Pokémon, such as:

  • a picture of an original character with Pokéball boxers/other themed clothing that does not depict actual Pokémon
  • a picture of an original character with a vague symbol (such as a Pokéball) as an item or symbol
  • an original character dressed up as a Pokémon Trainer or other kind of cosplay without any Pokémon shown

In short, don't put this on posts that show only vague symbols from the franchise, use it only when Pokémon themselves are depicted. For symbols, trainer cosplay, and so on, use the umbrella Pokémon tag.

Use it on images like these: :3 ambiguous_gender comic dialogue digital_media_(artwork) english_text happy hi_res humor mammal nintendo nope not-a-comedian pikachu pokémon pokémon_(species) rodent sequence simple_background smile solo spoon sweat text unseen_character video_games what white_background
