Poké is a personal blog and Pokémon news source, run by the webmaster, Paul (who also goes by the name "Pokejungle"). The site had its highest activity record broken around the release of Pokémon X and Y.


Poké's webmaster, Paul, started the site in late 2003. This is what he wrote in his bio:

"A little PJN History:

  • Started in late 2003 / early 2004 when I was 13. I used my ISP's free webspace.
  • Hosts of PJN include Earthlink, Hosting Anime, Freewebs, Shyper, Elixant, and Downtown Host
  • "PokeJungle" was the original site name until I added "Network" awhile after. There was also a period of time (2 months maybe) when it was called "Crobat’s Jungle".
  • The early forums used ProBoards and were named "Crobat’s Cavern". This later became Mt. Moon Community after we rebranded it and launched it on my own hosting.
  • Most people to visit my site in one day was 80,937 when Black and White launched in Japan."[1]

Site changes

Like many fansites, Poké has gone through many changes. The most recent change was a complete update of the site's layout on July 29, 2010. PokéJungle recently held a contest, open to visitors, to create a new banner for the site. However, he ended up joining with TopHat of PLDH.[2] They created a new minimalistic style, centered around the new Grass-type starter, Snivy.
As well as a style change, the site also partnered with Smeargle's Canvas, an oekaki also owned by Paul, where Poké's visitors may post their own fanart.


Poké is a blog. Much like other blogs, Poké has a wide variety of content posted on its front page.

News and updates

Like many other Pokémon fansites, Paul posts Pokémon-related news on his website. Newly revealed information on Pokémon games, downloadable event Pokémon and magazine leaks are some of the things that Paul may post on the site from time to time. He also posts personal updates on his website — anything that he would like to share with his visitors.


Paul may post unconfirmed information and rumors on his site. Some of the rumors on Poké are translated from the Japanese website, 2ch. Many rumors posted on the site have later been confirmed true.


Utilizing all areas of his site's connection abilities, Paul has held contests for event Pokémon that he or his staff download onto their Japanese Pokémon games. To enter the competitions, one usually has to leave a comment on an update, on the forums or on the site's Facebook or Twitter page. The prizes for previous contests have included Arceus, Mew, Manaphy, Latias and Latios, Goon Scizor and Satoshi's Pikachu.
