If you have any questions or comments about the site or want to report an error, the best way to get in touch with me is by any of the methods detailed below. Make sure you read the About page and the section below before you do, though; I'd rather not have to respond to questions that already have a visible answer.

Quick Answers to Common Questions, Just in Case

Can I use your fakemon/moves/abilities for X?

If the thing you want to use has a Creative Commons license image Creative Commons License on its page, then yes, you may use it in accordance with the guidelines described here. You don't have to ask me first. (If you asked me about this at an earlier point and I told you "no", yes, you can now use them as long as you follow the license.)

If it does not have that image on it, however, then you do need to get my permission; the answer is probably "no" (because otherwise it would probably be CC-licensed already, wouldn't it?), but you're welcome to try.

If you do need to ask for permission, please describe your project in your message so I actually understand what you're doing and whether or not I'm comfortable having my stuff associated with it.

Can you make fakemon for me/my game/my forum/etc.?

No. I don't do fakemon requests/commissions and I don't have time to join your fangame's team or your forum's moderators or whatever. I do have a Tumblr for fakemon ideas and several fakemon creation resources on this site if you don't want to use the Creative Commons stuff, though, so you're welcome to read through those to help your project along.

Did you know X about the new games/When are you going to add X new thing?

Yes, I know, and I'll deal with it when I have time. I promise that I pay just as much attention to Serebii and Bulbapedia and PokeBeach and wherever else as you do. I appreciate the heads-up, but kindly don't assume I don't know what's going on in the franchise just because I didn't add a bunch of fakemon for a new type or whatever immediately after Serebii reported on it. Updates to the site are not exactly frequent anyway, so why should an update for a whole new game/generation/etc. come along any faster? Honestly, new games/generations often change enough things that making those updates involves extra work and a lot of reorganization, so they're likely to take even longer than usual. Please be patient while I work to keep the Phoenixdex up-to-date. :)


The email address you want is phoenixsong at alteredorigin dot net. Kindly don't spam it, etc..


My primary account is phoenixkratos, so you can use Tumblr's ask or fanmail features (asks preferred so I can respond more easily) to toss any general questions or comments my way. By "general" I mean questions/comments about the Phoenixdex/my fakemon, error reports, things like that. If your question is about help with your own fakemon ideas or something similar, please send it to ideadex instead.


My DA username is phoenixsong; if you have a DA account then you can note me, leave a comment on my profile, whatever. Note that I haven't been terribly active on DA recently, however, so you're better off with one of the other options if you can swing it.
