  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A tabletop RPG Affectionate Parody of both Pokémon and the Cthulhu Mythos. Created in 2000 by S. John Ross and John Kovalic (whose art may seem oddly familiar), Pokethulhu consists of a 30-page sourcebook which contains brief instructions for creating player characters (known as Cultists) and Pokethulhu (also known simply as "thulhu"), as well as a simple battle system, a few campaign ideas and a sample adventure.

Pokethulhu takes as its central conceit the existence of a fictional television show by the same name (as seen on the Lovecraft Network). Players step into the role of Cultists, venturing out into the world with a Pokenomicon and a handful of Shining Dodecahedrons in order to tame and train the mysterious and powerful creatures that give the game its name. Along the way, they might foil the plots of Team Eibon, or discover the secrets of the Nameless City, or even meet Pokethulhu of legendary and unimaginable power (although this is considerably more dangerous than in the more kid-friendly original).

The third edition can be downloaded for free from this webpage.

Ia, Pikathulhu fhtagn!
