PocketMonsters.net is looking for a few knowledgeable people that would be willing to help out with our: Character Bios, Voice Actor Database, TCG Database and Content DB. With the PocketMonsters.net Version 5, we have done a number of changes to improve the user experience and have also created new sections of the site to expand our content.

If you are willing to help out with any of projects or would like to create your own project for the site, please let me know by private messaging me here on the site, replying to this thread or via email at: sunain.pm@gmail.com. People that help out with these projects can also get to know the staff of PocketMonsters.net, who are all dedicated and passionate fans of the Pokémon franchise. We have a growing community of visitors and any assistance to help our Pokémon fansite grow is greatly appreciated. If you are unfamiliar with our site, be sure to read our About Us page.

Thanks for your support and enjoy visiting the site.

Character Database - Bio Writing: While all the Characters have been created and assigned, many of them are lacking detailed descriptions. As part of our on going task to get as much information as possible about the Pokemon Anime in a database form, the character bios are the next step to give viewers of the website a lot of information about the characters. While some characters will have more information to build a biography, most characters should have enough information from the episodes they are in to write at least a 3 paragraph biography. An example bio is available here. Some characters have basic or 1 paragraph bios already. Please expand upon those bios especially if the episode you are watching has important information for a character that doesn't have any bio information written about yet. Our goal it to have a minimum of 3 to 5 paragraphs of information for each character. Some characters, especially some character Pokemon may need a bit of padding to get that much but that shouldn't be too hard to do.

We are hoping to get as many people as possible to write biographies for the characters in that episode and to check to make sure the current information in the 'Character' guide tab is accurate. Bios need to be written for all "Characters" listed in the episode guide tab, which includes characters of the day, secondary characters and secondary character Pokemon, ect. Quite often secondary characters will appear in a lot of episodes. Only add major relevant information to their bios pertaining to the episodes you are assigned if that information isn't already there. Please refrain from writing episode synopsis for the characters and include only relevant information.

Voice Actor Database: Our voice actor database is completely new to PocketMonsters.net and multiple voice actors can be assigned to each character in the Character database. Were hoping to get some basic info on each voice actor. 2-3 paragraphs if possible for each voice actor detailing interesting things people might like to know about them.

TCG Database: Our TCG database on Version 5 of our site has been completely updated and we are just looking for people willing to do data entry. You don't need to know much about the TCG but it helps. When new sets are released, we want to update our database accordingly.

Content Database: On Version 5 of PocketMonsters.net, we have completely updated our content database. We plan to make it a true fansite based encyclopedia where all articles are completely written from scratch. We would like to cover all Pokemon topics that would be heavily textual based that would not work well in a SQL database such as: Press releases, opinion articles, reference articles, encyclopedia like entries, ect. We want to cover as many topics on the Pokemon Franchise as possible. While the Content Database would not be an actual 'Wiki', all the features such as revisions, last updated, direct site integration with search are already available. The articles are written in HTML, so staff members would have to know how use HTML.

News Articles PocketMonsters.net has always prided ourselves on our news reporting and will continue to do so. If you wish to help out on reporting news from around the world, we are always looking for people to write detailed and accurate news postings.

Here you go, for Cynthia's Bio:

Cynthia is the Champion of the Sinnoh region, hailing from Celestic Town. She is also a researcher of Pokemon mythologies and folklore. She travels across the Sinnoh region, as well as other regions, accepting challenges to Pokemon battles and studying sites related to Pokemon mythologies.

Ash, Brock, and Dawn first meet Cynthia as she is studying stone tablets at Amity Square Ruins. Cynthia instructs Ash and Paul and observes their rivalry, with Chimchar being the key that binds their fates together. As Cynthia recites from the stone tablets, "When every life meets another life, something will be born." Cynthia and Ash, as well as his friends and Paul, encounter each other throughout the Diamond & Pearl series from then on. One such instance is Cynthia's intervention to stop Cyrus of Team Galactic's plot to control of Dialga and Palkia. She appears again during the Sinnoh League Tournament, in which Cynthia is a spectator to the matches that take place.

Cynthia meets Ash again, as well as Cilan and Iris, in the Unova region, during Best Wishes 2. They travel together to Cynthia's villa, while encountering Meloetta on the way. Iris challenges Cynthia to a battle as she hopes to become a Dragon Master and raise her Axew to be as strong as Cynthia's Garchomp. Cynthia is expected to have an exhibition match at the Pokemon World Tournament Junior Cup.

Cynthia's team throughout the series consists of Garchomp, Gastrodon, and Glaceon. Garchomp is her strongest Pokemon, and most frequently called out. Garchomp helped triumph over Team Galactic and defeated multiple challengers, such as: Paul, Aaron, Flint, and Iris. Cynthia's Gastrodon has also helped in several battles, particularly against Team Galactic and against Aaron in a Championship match. Her Glaceon is called out to help heal the sickly Meloetta by creating ice.

NOTE, do not add this to the bio: Under Battle Against Iris' Axew, "as she was" is repeated twice. Also, I do not recall Cynthia being in ep 3 of Best Wishes 2. Unless the recap at the beginning of the ep counts.
I hope this is satisfactory. Lemme know if changes need to be made.

Thanks I have added your bio of Cynthia to the database. It certainly expanded the information on her. I also corrected "as she was" repeated twice. We do count any occurrence as an appearance be it in flashback form or memory.
