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 you have any questions concerning declined submissions, please comment on the actual submission process of the deviation rather than on our front page. The other deviants do not need to see comments like that.

: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.


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: 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 on our recent blog. 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.










Hello everybody!

Some of you may have probably noticed that we are accepting and letting expire artworks on a very irregular base lately. That is because we are running low on admins for the moment, and we both have a rather hectic live. We don't always have time to look at your contributions. That's why we came up with a new (or a changed) policy.
To make up for our busy worksheme, we'd like to ask you this: if you have Contributed your work, and it Expires, please recontribute it!
We used to let pieces expire instead of denying them (or be at least very inconsequent with it). From now on we will clearly deny Deviations. We will, however, always include our reasons.
I personally have encountered another problem. Somebody was wondering why their Deviation was denied, while another wasn't. Since only I voted, my personal opion is a little too strong present to my liking. Therefore, wil will now work with a democratic vote system for your deviations. But to be democratic, you need to be with more than two! If you are sufficiently critical, we are very open for admins! (For more details, check this Journal: ) I will adapt the voting system to the amount of new admins.

Thanks for your understanding!
Your friendly neighbourhood admin, Phi8~

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!
lydario Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2014
Ok, cool. I'll keep you posted.

Hi, Would the form that groudon and kyogre are shown in omega and alpha box art be considered 6th gen or 3rd gen?
lydario Featured By Owner May 14, 2014
I… honestly couldn't tell you. I'd… say… well… :1
Phi8 Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Student
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.
ShawnnL Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Student Digital Artist
right thanks!

I remember when I used to run this group. Those were some good days.
