From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Russian Pokémon Community (Русское Поке-Сообщество), or PokéCenter (Покецентр) is a Russian Pokémon fan-site.

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
The site features Pokémon-related news and articles in Russian, mostly focusing on the Pokémon games and anime. News and articles can be written by any user; articles are checked by moderators after publication. News is stored as blog-style entries with a comment system. Forum topics, articles and Battle Videos use the same system.
Several tournaments have been held by the community. PC's tournaments often use non-standard rules for battles. For example, the latest tournament, the Metronome Tournament, allowed using only 4 Pokémon (Cleffa, Happiny, Togepi and Snubbull) and they were to have only one move - Metronome - in their move-sets. The goal of the tournament was to find the luckiest member. Special Cleffa were distributed via GTS to those who had no possibility or desire to raise their own Pokémon.
Every Sunday evening, a special event is held by the community. Trainers gather in Jabber-conference to battle each other, trade, participate in Battle Frontier facilities, or even play any non-Pokémon Nintendo DS games. In every Batoru Eve any participant can achieve the title of King Of The Hill by defeating the previous holder of the title and put himself to challenge of holding this title, being challenged by the others. The last Tzar holds his title till the next Batoru Eve.
Fake GTS distributions
Starting 4 April, 2010, PC has distributed Pokémon with a fake GTS, coded by the site administrator, ILJICH. Usually, distributed Pokémon have no special value and serve as a symbol, like Noctowl distributed on the International Literacy Day or have some utility use, like level 91 Ambipom with Pickup. Pokémon are always legitimate (however the fact itself of cloning via distribution could barely be considered legitimate) as they bred by the site users or administrators before distribution. Only one Pokémon is allowed to be received by one person. The only modification is that every Pokémon has their OT changed to RusPkCo, so anyone can identify distributed Pokémon, as users are neither allowed to trade received Pokémon, nor use them in tournaments.
Pokelab - is the Pokémon wiki supported by the site. The goal of the wiki is to provide info about universe to Russian-speaking Pokémon fans. The wiki is currently in early stages.
The community is also supported by the group in popular Russian social network, VKontakte. The group is the largest Pokémon-related social network and currently has over 11,000 participants.
PC has its own jabber server, run by the community. The server is open: anyone can connect it, register, create conferences and communicate. Most conversations are held in the main conference, Pokeworld@conference.pokecenter.ru. Those who have no jabber account can access groupchat via webgate on the site.
