Project CharacterDex

Scope and aims

Project CharacterDex aims to write and improve comprehensive on characters from games. Good articles include Blue and Red.

Project CharacterDex also aims to get as much info as possible on new characters. A good example would be Pokémon Trainer from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Project CharacterDex also aims to add unknown info about the characters and their Pokémon. This includes moves and abilities. A good example would be the addition of previously unknown abilities of the Pokémon in the Battleground.

Last, but not least, Project CharacterDex aims to upload ALL sprites from the games.


This Project's goal is to cover every possible article that falls under the criteria of "game-exclusive characters" and to pick up as many helping members as possible along the way.

Participants are strongly encouraged to have this template on their userpage:

Article Layout

Under CharacterDex's new canon system, the games section of characters should go first. Sections should go:

==In the games==
 ===In {{game|GAME NAME}}===
  ====Pokémon Party====
==In the anime==
 ====Voice actors====
     * Japanese
     ** [[Japanese Characters [[Japanese VA]]
     * English
     ** [[English VA]]
     * Other
     ** [[Other VA]]
==In the manga==
 ===[[Pokémon Special]]===
 ===In Pokémon "other manga"===
==In the TCG==
Exceptions to the Article Layout

Despite the fact that all characters will be given this treatment, there are some exceptions to this new rule:

Characters who are anime-exclusive, ie Sakura, Daisy, Violet, Lily.
Characters who debut in the anime, only appearing in the games due to that.
Important main characters from the anime, ie Brock, Misty, and Giovanni.
