Some Bulbapedia members have formed a project to better organize efforts to write and improve articles about the Pokémon Trading Figure Game. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page or the Bulbapedia forum and see to-do list.

Project TFG

Scope and aims

Project TFG covers all articles about the Trading Figure Game.

Its goal is to create comprehensive articles on the game and the different sets produced for it, as well as a comprehensive database on all the figures of the Pokémon Trading Figure Game, detailing all information on each. Its secondary goal is to create comprehensive articles on the game's trainer cards.

  2. To create detailed articles on different Sets for the Trading Figure Game and maintain them to high standards.
  3. To create detailed articles on all the Pokémon Trading Figures and maintain them to high standards.
  4. To create detailed articles on all the Trainer Cards and maintain them to high standards.

  • {{TFG}} - This link template is for figures or cards which appear widely in the game. To use this link template, type in {{TFG|<name>}}.
  • {{TFG ID}} - This link template is for figures or cards which are exclusive to a Set. To use this link template, type in {{TFG ID|<Set name>|<figure name>|<number>}}. For example, {{TFG ID|Next Quest|Treecko|22}} would result in Treecko.
