Custom Avatars are back... just in time for U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. Until at least 6PM Pacific Time Sunday November 27, you may upload a non-animated Pokemon themed avatar that meets the our guidelines. Please read these guidelines before you start designing, as they have changed since last custom avatar day! Staff will not give you advice about whether your avatar is allowed, so please do not post or PM themwith this request; just review the guidelines and use your best judgment. Upload of animated avatars will not be enabled this time around; we will have an animated avatar contest later this year.
