    If it is successful, it looks like it could be a fun site to visit from time to time.

    At first I thought it was going to be a more adult/mature-themed Pokemon game. T'was disappointed. It looks interesting... but meh. Not worth my euros.
    Bulbapedia is basically a wiki containing real information, whereas this looks more like a fanfic.

    Neat idea, but I can't imagine it'll be more than a few weeks before Ninty's legal vultures come circling down.

    Maybe if you had to pay to use the website, but they're not making any profit off of the website, so I can't think of any legal ramifications to that. Then again, I don't know law.

    we really dont know that but anyway he is collecting money right now using nintendo's ip it will most likely get shut down
    the whole idea/site looks stupid anyway, its just a bunch of fan art, and fanfics (like the world needs more pokemon fanfics)

    30,000 Euros... for an "interactive" website.

    I'm not normally one to say "It's just a game," or anything like that, but... guys, cool your jets, it's just a game.

    C+D incoming?

    why would anybody think that it would be a good idea to collect money to make a website based on somebody else's intellectual property?

    So how about that jynx artwork revamp... I'm sure it will have tons of new revealing secrets on those single gender pokemon.

    Interesting, but not worth my money. I can't imagine spending more than half an hour on the site before I completely lose interest and forget about it.

    Not worth funding tbh. Not unless you're a Gen 1 fan who feels too old for Pokemon.

    Meh. If this was actually a game or something I'd be all over it.

    For all intents and purposes, if this is going to be non-profit then C&D doesn't really apply - fan art isn't banned (at least not globally - it depends on the country in question).

    I guess he's going into a more realistic take ..ok, but his take on this didn't impressed me ...maybe if he finds another artist?
    ..but the way it's going, I don't thing it's worth my time at least
