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: post #1268334 post #1319757 post #1313780 post #1258647 post #600563 post #1255584 post #1250938
Not images like these: post #603419 post #837022 post #965893

Also note that despite being called Pocket Monsters, most Pokémon do not look monstrous enough to be tagged as monster. Moreover, while Pokémon species may also be tagged with certain physical traits/classes, they should not also be tagged with the specific species of animal they are based on. So for example, the Pokémon Blazikenpost #2365716, could be tagged with Avian since it has bird-like features such as talons, feathers, and a beak; but it should never also be tagged with Chicken.
