PokémonAus Forums – colloquially known as PAf – is a Pokémon forum that is an offshoot of the PokémonAus news site. It allows users to discuss news regarding Pokémon in Australia and acts as a meeting place for Pokémon fans in the country (and sometimes abroad) to discuss "everything from Abomasnow to Zweilous".
