    Pet battle sub-forum

    I can't find any place to talk about my pokemens other than gen chat. Would be nice to have a dedicated sub-forum for this.

    No, Lore sub forum should come before pet battle.

    I don't think we need either, just use the bloody general discussion.

    Role-Play is not the same as lore.

    As per the FAQ.

    Q: Could you add a forum for [insert topic]?
    A: We're always interested to hear what forums you think the site is missing, but we would need to make sure there's currently enough active discussions on the topic to sustain its own forum.

    The issue is as you outlined, 'can't find any place to talk', just shows that there isn't much interest for it.
    This is how it is for the asking of a lore forum.

    This.

    Lots of people think they're interested in posting on a subject or just like voting yes on polls, but the real question is how many people actually post lore-related stuff and how active those discussions are.

    This pretty much. A lore subforum should come much sooner than one for pet battles, there's just much more interest.

    It is not the same. RP is where your playing your own character (either from WoW or made up), while lore is just talking about the actual Warcraft story.

    The mods always say that we need to prove that there is enough interest. But if you actually look up in the general discussions, there are plenty of lore threads being made each day, and they easily reach up to a lot of pages. Isn't that enough showing interest? How else did the achievement and macro subforums deserve their spot?

    Keep in mind that only admins have hard data on thread statistics. "Plenty" is just speculation on your and my part. Here's a quote from Sunshine from awhile back:

    On that topic, maybe create like a trial of both to see if an interest is there.

    I think a stickied Megathread could probably handle Pet Battles.

    I frequent the general forums daily, and I always seem to see 1-2 if not more pet battle related topics up, I think a pet battle sub forum would be a great idea! However ofc I don't have the infos the mods do as to how viable it would really be, I think it's deffo worth a think though

    Personally, I would definitely support a forum on this subject and the Pet Battle subforum on the official site is actually -very- busy for a subforum. However, a lot of it is WTS/WTB/WTT and that forum is already very established now. I know I would move here and that would cause at least a few people to visit here, but I just don't know.

    There is easily enough to discuss on the subject of Pet Battles to generate 10 threads a day, though. I could probably generate 10 threads a day myself.
