'''Pokemopolis''', or previously, '''Pokémon, Pokémon''', is a fan site maintained by ''Dodgemaster Tim'' and ''Dodgemaster Lex'', and originally ''Dodgemaster Brandon'' as well. It is popular for being one of the few openly satirical Pokémon fansites that is able to maintain a wide degree of popularity, having reached its 400,000th hit.

The site is dedicated to the proposition that "Pokémon is NOT a children's cartoon." It is well known for its detailed and humorous {{pkmn|anime}} episode guides, contests, Anti-[[RocketShipping]] stance, dislike of [[Ritchie]] and [[Todd Snap]], and its promotion of {{p|Koffing}}.
+
'''Pokemopolis forum''' is a forum dedicated to Pokémon. Their slogan "Not dirty, just dodgy!" still stands for both the main site and the forum. It is a small forum with little users, but is still popular amongst guests and the current accounts.
   
Generally speaking, most of the humor is innuendo and parody that might not be suitable for very young children; the site is geared more towards teenage and adult fans. Their slogan is "Not Dirty, Just Dodgy!".

==Topics==
  +
===Pokemopolis===
  +
The Pokemopolis section is the main section of the forums. Here, a user is able to see updates in the Welcome to Pokemopolis section, ask questions in Ask The Dodgemasters, and post up fanart and fanfics in the Fanworks thread.
   
== History ==
+
===Pokémon===
Pokemopolis was originally a generic Pokémon fansite run by Dodgemaster Brandon. Unfortunately, it was not successful, and when Dodgemaster Tim and Dodgemaster Lex, who had been introduced to Pokémon by Brandon, began to pick up on the alleged innuendo present in the show, they decided to change the format of the site to one that explored the dodgyness of the show, and Pokemopolis was born.
+
The Pokémon section allows users to talk about the anime, games, and everything else not from Generation IV in the Pokémon - The Dodgy Journeys section. For Diamond and Pearl, a user must go to Pokémon - Diamond and Pearl.
   
Over the years, it gained a lot of popularity. In mid to late 2003, the amount of people in the forums was beginning to rival that of much more well-known Pokémon websites. The amount of people visiting the forums has lowered a lot, partly due to the removal of the chatroom in late 2003, but it still remains a fairly popular site.
+
===Everything Else===
  +
The Everything Else thread is for Entertainment and Current News, Other Anime, and Rants and Ramblings.
   
== Site ==
+
===Beyond Reality===
+
Beyond Reality is for those users that wish to discuss 'conspiracies'. Whether it's about aliens or {{wp|Sasquatch|bigfoot}}, it can be discussed in this topic.
The site contains many links, including fanworks, anti-RocketShipping claims, quizzes, contests, and even a forum.
 
 
=== Pokemopolis Main ===
 
The Main Page, Intro, Updates, Censor message, Awards, and Links to other sites are contained here.
 
 
=== Anime ===
 
Under this section, the Episode Guide, Movies, Characters, Movie Casting, Voices, and a page all about Owen Wilson are kept. The episode guide contains all the seasons up to Battle Frontier, which holds 10 of the episodes, and also all the recent Sinnoh League Victors episodes. The titles usually consist of dodgy material with the correct English title underneath. Each episode has a parody Japanese title, a dodgyness rating, an animation rating, 'Team Rocketness', the story, a dodgy synopsis, and a, usually funny, 'moral learnt' section.
 
 
=== Fanworks ===
 
The fanworks, including fanart, fanfics, and a top ten list, are all kept here in a neat package. Fanfics there have to meet the requirements of being dodgy, being rated no higher than PG-13, and keeping it of 'reasonable length'.
 
 
=== Pokémon ===
 
The Pokémon section contains a longer list of things from the Pokémon anime. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
 
 
<ab>Team Rocket
 
Anti-RocketShipping
 
Jailbait
 
anti-May
 
Love
 
Japan
 
Koffing
 
Tracey vs. Brock
 
Toys of the Devil
 
Manga
 
International Editions</ab>
 
 
The Koffing page is dedicated the [[James]]'s {{TP|James|Koffing}} and is very Anti-{{p|Weezing}}. The jailbait page hoards many reasons why all the girls of Pokémon are to be considered jailbait, especially {{an|May}}. The Japan page tells all the reasons why Dodgemasters Tim and Lex think Japan is awesome. Tracey vs. Brock is all about who is the better man of the show in their own opinions (of whom Brock wins); this also contains a {{an|Misty}} vs. May section (of whom May wins).
 
 
=== Interactive ===
 
The interactive section has Contests, Personality Tests, an advice column featuring Ash's Pikachu, Horoscopes, a French Lesson that contains funny and unusual phrases, and, lastly, polls.
 
 
=== Dodgemasters ===
 
This section contains Biographies on the owners, as well as a Photo Gallery. The third link, Armageddon, shows photos and a summary of the Dodgemasters' trip to the '''Armageddon Pop Culture Convention 2001'''.
 
 
=== Forums ===
 
{{main|Pokemopolis forum}}
 
The forums are a feature that pops-up in a new window. As of February 27th, they have 475 members.
 
   
 
==Staff==
 
==Staff==
There have been three staff members present at Pokemopolis.
+
*'''Dodgemaster Tim'''
+
*'''Yam'''
===Dodgemaster Brandon===
 
'''Dodgemaster Brandon''' was the original creator of the site back when it was still ''Pokémon, Pokémon''. Once the site was moved, however, he did not stay and run the site any longer. Currently, after a prolonged absence, he mostly browses the forums.
 
 
===Dodgemaster Tim===
 
'''Dodgemaster Tim''' was one of the two people who took over the site from Dodgemaster Brandon. After picking up the innuendo in the show, he and Dodgemaster Lex changed the format of the site into one that focuses the anime's dodgyness. Tim writes the episode guides, provides fanart, and keeps regular communication with the core group of fans who frequent the forums of the site.
 
 
===Dodgemaster Lex===
 
'''Dodgemaster Lex''' was the other person who took over the site from Dodgemaster Brandon. She works mostly on the site's contests and maintains much of the website's code.
 
 
==Trivia==
 
*The site is known for its over the top descriptions of characters. Notable examples include Ash being outrageously stupid, Fantina being a transvestite, Bianca being Barry in disguise, and Nando being a drug dealer.
