What is Defy-PokeStereotypes?

This is a group paying tribute to Pokemon that are not of their expected gender (or of what gender they are commonly perceived to be, in the case of legendaries) or nature. For example, a female Machoke or a timid Gyarados.

:bulletred: What kind of stuff is allowed here?

There must be some correlation to the theme above. :) Ranging from Pokemon fan-characters, gender/nature-bended species, to couples.

:bulletred: So, are any human couples or fan-characters in Pokemon allowed?

No, sorry. Any such artwork pertaining to the human characters are not accepted. Also, while you are allowed to include humans in your submissions (so long as a pokemon defying a stereotype is in the submission), we will not allow any images that show, or even hint at, pokephilia (Human X Pokemon pairings).

:bulletred: How about gijinkas?

So long as they contribute to our group theme and are original, by all means, yes. :)

:bulletred: What folder should I submit my artwork to?

We are still organizing our folders, so as of now, you may submit to the Featured folder.

:bulletred: Will there be any contests in this group?

Yes, there will be, but as of now, we are not planning anything.

:bulletred: How do I join?

It's just one click away. :) Your join invitation will automatically be accepted. But please keep in mind that you continue to behave appropriately and follow the rules.

:bulletred: Why does this group hate feminine and masculine Pokemon so much?

Defy-PokeStereotypes is not a hate group. It is not trying to promote any sort of hate towards others' ideas or artwork. If there are members who are in fact hating on another deviant's artwork, please let any of our founders know and such member will be dealt with. We're also not against feminine and masculine. We're only against the stereotypes, hence the name "Defy-PokeStereotypes".


:bulletgreen: Please do not submit anything that is not related to the theme of this group. It will be removed immediately. If violated more than 3 times, you will be banned from the group.
:bulletgreen: Don't submit anything extremely sexual, extremely violence or nudity. Occasional perverted things or mild violence are okay, but keep in mind, it is best not to get too carried away with the theme. Artwork dealing with very sexual topics, nudity, or gore will be removed immediately, and any violators will be banned from the group.
:bulletgreen: RESPECT THE ARTIST's WORK This really should go without saying, but please do not flame, troll, or bash any works of other members or other deviants. (Constructive criticism does not count as bashing, trolling, flaming, etc.) Violators will be consulted and warned. Any further harassment by violators will be banned.
:bulletgreen: Do not post stolen artwork to the gallery. Violators will be banned.


This group is still under construction, so of course many things still need to be worked out. ^^; Again, any newer rules that we come across will get updated here.

:icon13z-stars: suggested something interesting in the previous journal's comment section:

" genetic mutations okay such as a Masquerain's wings being in a slightly different pattern for example?"

After talking with another admin, we have agreed that this would make for an interesting take on the theme of the group.  A new folder has been added called "Biology Defying".  Despite it's name, this does not mean we are accepting fusemon or anything of the sort.  Only pokemon with mutations and the like are allowed in the folder.

We look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Timid means higher Speed but lower Attack.
How does your Timid Gyarados fare in battle?

Amusing considering your avatar is Mewtwo and the two are often depicted fighting each other. XD

Actually, I'm unsure if Journals are allowed so you can just ignore it.
LilCoqui Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2015
We should really consider adding a literature section, though. I mean, if we're allowing stamps expressing opinions, I guess we could also allow a couple of journals alongside fanfics. Plus, I read it and it doesn't sound like you're hating on anyone.

Alright, thanks!
