From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
is a Pokémon forums website that operates similarly to the Bulbagarden forums
. It has gained notability for housing one of the largest English ROM hacking communities on the internet.
The current PokéCommunity banner
"We are still working on a better slogan!"
The Official Forums section contains things such as the Community Announcements, where the Community Rules and Donations and Supporter Benefits can be found, Community Questions & Feedback, where members can discuss questions and concerns they may have about the forums, and a New Users / Welcome forum. It is also common for users that have gone on hiatus to re-introduce themselves in the New Users Welcome thread.
Members were once able to request username changes in the Community Questions & Feedback forum, but this put heavy strain on the server and was eventually abandoned. Members were given the chance to choose their final name change in the weeks leading up to the removal of this feature.
