Between the games, anime, and strong fan-following, what can contain the behemoth that is the Pokémon franchise?

Since the release of Pok√©mon X & Y, we've covered the franchise regularly‚ÄĒwe've done everything from break stories like Twitch Plays Pokemon to posting all the neat cosplay the franchise inspires. It's not enough. Every day, there are a ton of cool, worthwhile Pok√©mon-related things that never go up on Kotaku proper‚ÄĒstuff that the world needs to see. That's where Pocket Monster, our new subsite dedicated to all things Pokemon, comes in.

The site is still a part of Kotaku‚ÄĒyou'll see some of the best posts from this site on the main page. So even if you don't follow Pocket Monster, you'll still be up-to-date on everything you need to know about Pok√©mon.

But if you do follow the site, you'll also see lots of other small, neat things from the Pok√©mon universe, too. Think of it as a place that takes 'Gotta Catch Em All' seriously. To that end, we welcome any and all tips about Pok√©mon‚ÄĒbe it a cool screenshot from something that happened in your game, or a Pok√©mon-related story you want to tell the world.

Now pretend I'm saying this in a Professor Oak voice: Welcome to the world of Pokémon Pocket Monster. <3
