The Best Pokemon Blogs and Forums

Once in my young adulthood, I managed a list of blogs, podcasts, and YouTube channels which covered Magic the Gathering. The list became more work than it was worth, and in 2022, it seems such a list isn’t even worth maintaining. But, it turns out, there are still plenty of blogs when it comes to Pokemon. As this is the one major topic that I continue to write about and gain quite a following of readers to this day, it only seemed fair that I share the love to the sites that I frequent as sources for my own article work.

As with all resource posts that I maintain, I will be vigilant in ensuring these links stay up to date every three to six months, shedding broken links as my plugins inform me. As always, if you think a blog should appear on this list, please comment or contact me via my website contact form. I will not be including YouTube channels or podcasts here, simply as it becomes a massive hassle; these days, I prefer to highlight individual channels for specific content I enjoy.

Without further ado, here is the list of the Best Pokemon Blogs and Forums I’ve found as of September 30, 2022.
