The PokéCommunity, sometimes referred to as just PokéCommunity and often shortened to 'PC', is a Pokémon discussion forum that aims to provide a wide-range of topics about Pokémon and the Pokémon fandom, ranging from the games (both core series and others) the anime, the manga and much more, as well as other areas for Pokémon fans, including Pokémon related art and design, fanfiction, game and software development, fan clubs and trivia.

It also has many other sections for non-Pokémon discussions and creativity, as well as personal image galleries and customisable profiles for all users. It provides personal Blogs for Staff Members and higher-ranked Community Supporters, the latter having donated money towards the site's maintenance costs.

The website plays host to other services for its members, such as the Oekaki drawing system, Pokémon Battle Server, Minecraft server and IRC chat-room, as well as providing iOS and Android applications for users to browse the forums on-the-go. It has a significant social media presence, sporting Facebook and Google+ pages and an official Twitter feed.

The forums were launched sometime in September 2002 by user Master Kwesi Nkromah, and aside from various outages, have been online ever since. It has over 350,000 members and over seven million posts as of June 2013. It is currently running the vBulletin forum software and is owned and administered by user Rukario. It has a large, staggered staff team, who coordinate to run every part of the site.

PokéCommunity is known for it's yearly forum-wide Get-Together mega-events, held once a year usually around summer time in which many members volunteer to run and participate in a wide range of events and competitions. In 2012, PokéCommunity celebrated its tenth anniversary online in a special Get-Together dubbed PCX.

PokéCommunity has gained particular notability for housing one of the largest and most active English Pokémon ROM hacking communities on the Internet, and has a wide range of available patch downloads and tutorials covering multiple areas of game development. Its members also actively research into the area and have pushed the ROM hacking medium forward considerably since its inception.
