BE SURE TO READ EVERYTHING!
Thanks for your understanding



Welcome to PremiumPokemon, a group dedicated to featuring the finest of Pokemon fan-art throughout the deviantART community. Unlike most groups, membership is not automatically approved, as we are a group that only grants membership to the skilled Pokémon artists of this website.

Should you wish to apply for membership, simply submit your request with a small, brief introduction about yourself and why you think your art skills match our standards. Keep in mind that if you fail to provide us with an introduction in the application request, you could automatically be rejected. Once you send the application, our admins will browse your gallery to see if your work is the kind of stuff that we are looking for. Do not apply if you have yet to make any Pokemon fan-art, as your membership will be automatically rejected. Your request will be voted upon by our set of admins.

If you do not wish to join, but still want to see the artwork that we accept, then just add the group to your deviantWATCH.:+devwatch:



Being a member of PremiumPokemon:
____________________________________________________________



:pointr: For members, the submission limit is one deviation per week. Also, please keep in mind that even as a member, your artwork will still be passed through our submission process, in which our admins will vote upon using strict quality control.

:pointr: Please contribute your works into the correct folders. If your work in submitted into the wrong one, it will be declined.

:pointr: No WIPs. We accept only finished, high-quality art that meet our standards.

:pointr: No Fakemon. We only accept official characters and Pokémon from the actual series. Original characters are still fine.

:pointr: Our group will currently not accept artwork that is deemed mature, as we try to offer a fair viewing field for both our members and watchers.

:pointr: If your Deviation submission or join request expires, please recontribute.

:pointr: If your artwork is declined, we will ask you if you want to know why. We will give you a critique on the artwork if you say yes. Keep in mind though that most of us aren't professionals in art.

:pointr: This group will not accept any favourites. We have no use for them.

:pointr: This group does not accept fan-fiction. We are dedicated solely to artwork only.

:pointr: Please do NOT post comments such as spam or self-advertisements, as they will be deleted. Also, any comments from complainers or trolls about how we are "unfair" or how "we don't know good art when we see it" will simply either be ignored or deleted. Any repetitive offenders will be banned.

FAQ:
______________________________________________________________________

Q: When if the deviation that I want to submit has a picture of both a 1st generation legendary and any other regular Pokémon?

A: Deviations like these would simply fall under the "Group Pictures or Multiple Generations" folder. However, if it were to be a picture of two or more regular 1st generation Pokémon, then it would still fall under the "1st Generation" folder.

Q: When if the deviation that I want to submit is an anthro/human version of two or more Pokémon?

A: No matter what the subject or characters are, if the picture has human or anthro Pokémon in it, then it should be submitted into the "Human or Anthro" folder.

Q: Where do I submit Mega Evolutions or Primal Devolutions?

A: In the folder of the generation they were introduced in. So at the time only the "6th Generation" and "6th Generation Legendaries" folders, however that might one day change.

Q: Can I be an admin? I'd love to help!

A: We are, in fact, in need of some more admins at the current moment, so if you would like to be an admin, simply comment somewhere. Your request will be reviewed.


Why we're here:
_______________________________________________________________

:pokeball: Our goal is to acquire only the better collection of Pokémon fan-art. One of the sole reasons we do this is because we believe there are way too many groups out there that just go ahead and accept everything and anything, thus making their galleries look a bit messy, while also hindering all the potentially good art. This group fixes that common issue, as the only things you will ever see in your inbox are pure, polished, quality work. Not everything we accept is absolutely perfect, but we try our best.

Alright, after some discussion with my fellow admins here, we decided to follow the suggestion given by some members.

You won't have to worry about putting something in the comment section of the submission process. We will just ask if you want to know why we declined your artwork.


Let's hope this is the best way of working, so we don't have to annoy you with a Journal again :p

Just wanted to say I left this group because of the very unprofressional 'critique' that I've received. It is one thing to do a high-pressured, critical analysis that may or may not be helpful, it is another to call someones' art style 'anatomically incorrect.' It is also another thing to call their technique 'cheesy and cheap.'

That was just a low shot, and that just cost you guys a member and a watcher. I have better groups to be in. I don't need my art shit on for no good reason with everything I submit just to be part of this so called 'elite' group.

I dealt with this in college, and it's more about enduring abusive behavior than a professional critique. I don't need to be 'critiqued' by people who may or may not have a profressional degree in said area of expertise, I just want to share my art. I already know where I need to improve. So for future reference, I'd suggest you have an option to where you have your members ASK for a critique upon acceptance or decline. 

Alrighty? 

Thanks.

I'm really sorry I made you feel like that. I can only express my regrets.
It was by no means meant to be harsh, but I understand that you wanted to leave.

Please understand that we are just trying to get the hang of it. And indeed, we are not professionals in art.
But would you really liked it better that we just denied it without any explanation? If that's so, we should indeed consider an option where there is no elaboration given.

I hope you accept my apologies. And you can be sure I won't forget this. If one member thinks we need to improve, then that's enough to do that.

For the summer, I will be largely unavailable to moderate, so I suggest getting someone to help out, or perhaps even having someone do it in my stead. I'm at a camp with limited time for internets.

Okay, thanks for the heads up. We just got another request for a contributor, so it should be fine.
Have a good time!

Hi, Would the form that groudon and kyogre are shown in omega and alpha box art be considered 6th gen or 3rd gen?

I'd say 6th gen for now. That's where the Mega Evolutions go. But as soon as they turn out to be a form, place them in 3th.
