It's been a while since we gave our Social Media accounts some love, and we feel like it's kinda kept us out of touch with a lot of fans both currently on the site, and those that aren't.

We want to be able to start even more conversations with you guys, share more of our content with you and, most importantly, share some of the stuff we absolutely love that you guys post on the Creative Corner here.

We've got so many talented people submitting artwork, writing and even photography that we'd like to shout about it even more than we already do. To tell the whole world that you guys are here and this is the amazing stuff you can do.

We don't want to post anyone's work without permission, though, so before we post anything to Facebook or Twitter, we will be contacting artists to ask permission. If you want to make the process even smoother and let us know you are happy with us sharing your work at any time, though, you can do one of the following:

It’s that time again! Another year has come and gone, and Pokécharms is another year older. Today Pokécharms.com is celebrating its 14th anniversary, and while the last few months for us have been fairly quiet the past 365 days have definitely been enjoyable.
Given that the games have been out a couple of months now, it's now time to lift the last restrictions on talking about Pokémon Sun and Moon. As of today, you may now post anywhere on the site regarding the plot of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

If you are posting spoilers, you do not need to put them in [spoiler] tags, although it is worth considering that some of our users still may not want to see some of the late-game plot points. We leave it up to your discretion as to whether you continue to use them. :)

As always, thanks for being part of Pokécharms, and we hope you enjoy the new freedom :)

As promised in a brief note last night: I am really pleased to announce that the Trainer Card Maker has been updated with all of the new Pokémon found in Alola, including all the Alolan variants of existing Pokémon. I want to extend a huge thank you to every single member of the Pokécharms staff for their efforts in making this possible so early – I couldn't do it alone!

From all of us on staff, we really hope you enjoy this update – and for those of you getting Pokémon Sun and Moon today, do enjoy it! If you want to chat about the new games, we invite you to join us in our Pokémon Sun and Moon forum, take a look at the latest Sun and Moon fanworks in our Creative Corner, or join us in our Role Play section, which has just been opened up to Alolan Pokémon.
Some very brief, but hopefully exciting news for trainer card fans: We'll be taking the site offline for about 30-45 minutes tomorrow at 8am GMT, in order to upgrade the Trainer Card Maker. This upgrade will introduce all the new Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon to the Trainer Card Maker. :)

We apologise in advance for the inconvenience for anyone who might be wanting to use the site at that time, but we're really excited to bring you the chance to include Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, and all the other Alolan Pokémon in your trainer cards!
As of now, Pokémon Sun and Moon are starting to roll out across the world, and some of you lucky folks will be beginning to pick up the games very soon. As a result, we wanted to make you all aware of the new policies regarding Pokémon Sun and Moon, and what's currently allowed and banned on Pokécharms. Click through to find out more...
EDIT 7th November: This article has been updated to reflect our stance on leaks from full copies of Pokémon Sun and Moon that have broken street date before release.

As some of you may know, Pokémon Sun and Moon's demo release was met by the datamining community with interest, and early this morning a large quantity of images were released depicting Pokémon Sun and Moon information that has not yet officially been revealed. Unfortunately, such information has not been sanctioned by Game Freak or Nintendo, and hosting it here would open us up to potential difficulties we are keen to avoid.

The practical effect of this is that we are not able to allow discussion, fanworks, or any other content involving leaked or datamined information, including that drawn from leaked copies of the game, until further notice. This does not include the info available as part of gameplay in the Sun and Moon demo. For example, any drawings of unrevealed Pokémon, mentions of them in the forums or profiles, and so on will be removed. Read more...
This is advance warning that we will be taking Pokécharms offline on Monday, August 29th at 9:00am BST (click this link to convert it to your local timezone) for approximately two hours, in order to make improvements and upgrades.

This time, we're not improving just one aspect of the site – we're introducing some major changes centred around a brand new look for Pokécharms. Click through to read more...
