If you would like to request a Pokedex, region, or both, please go to

Note that there are two different kinds of dex requests: a dex alongside a region, and a standalone or show dex. The rules are more strict for a show dex, and we will reject dexes we feel are not high enough quality. Your show dex should be at the level of the certified dexes.

Some general advice:
* Don't feel like you need to work alone. Every successful project here on Pokengine is at least in part a team effort.
* A dex is not an end-goal, but the first step. Don't make it your life goal to get a dex on Pokengine. If you enjoy working on your project and will continue to work on it after getting a dex, then we would love to have you!
* Making a game is hard! Remember this is a hobby, so don't burn yourself out. Enjoy the learning process and celebrate each step you make towards a final product.

NOTE: You must have full permission to use all content in your dex and game! This includes tilesets, music, designs, and sprites. Splicing or recoloring someone's art without permission is still stealing! Edited 2 years ago by @Fuzzy.

Question, what if we designed Pokemon but did not have the ability to make a game? Could someone add the Pokemon to their game? What would be the best way to go about doing this?

My Interregional Pokedex is planned to be precisely for your question. Members who have their own Fakemon they wish to add to the game without creating an entire Pokedex and region can submit them to be added to the Interregional Pokedex. Of course, there are some requirements for submitted Fakemon; these requirements will be handled in due time.

Thank you very much for your kind reply! I really have many ideas but one in particular... Well I will be sure to look out for those to come out!

Okay, so. Where is your:
1. Example of work(s)? (maps, sprites, sounds, musics, etc.)
2. Story?

And hope you don't mind me being blunt, but:
1. No one cares what a region based of. You can based it on poop, on candy, on lollipop, on real continent or island. What important is, you got a map for your pokes. Of course you are free to describe from what you based them from.
2. A story may or may not need an antagonist team. Or heck, it doesn't need to be a team. You could make it so the player needs to fight last boss on first encounter. Satan, for example. Or maybe all of the encounters are mid boss level. What important is, you got a plot, and that's what your story for. And to repeat, no one cares what they are based of. And to repeat again, Of course you are free to describe from what you based them from.
3. Gym leaders are part of the story. Your story could use them, or exclude them entirely. And to repeat again, no one cares what they are based of, or even their gender. You are free to describe from what you are based of and their gender. You could station an AI, a tree, a gender confused person, a round smooth rock, to be a gym leader. Heck, they are all tiles, I bet you could station a simple dirt road as a gym leader.
4. A region may or may not have legendary pokes. And to repeat again, no one cares if they fit or not in the story. You could make them fit, or you could not. You could say, you have a legendary pure rock type pokemon, in underwater region. Hell, that doesn't sound fit at all? Oh, but it is. How do you think a rock type pokemon able to survive in underwater? Well, it's a legendary.

All the rules you proposed are simply elements that make your story interesting, not something you MUST have.

TL;DR; Cook up something exciting and interesting so the OP(original poster, if you don't get that) is interested in your application. And then we can have additional region to play at. Because, who doesn't like moar regions? Especially if they are interesting to explore.
