Whilst perusing through the tags, I noticed there is one for . Do we really need one specific to this or can these be removed or changed to ?

    $\begingroup$ Note that Pokémon could be a video game, movie, TV show, or card game. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Sep 28 '16 at 15:42

    $\begingroup$ @GentlePurpleRain True, it could even be replaced with trivia instead. The tag just seems oddly specific, like if we had an american-history tag or hockey tag. $\endgroup$ – David Starkey Sep 28 '16 at 15:48

    $\begingroup$ I suppose the reason it exists is because we've had a number of "guess the pokémon" puzzles. Without the tag, you would have to explicitly state that the solution to the puzzle is a pokémon. With the tag, you can just tag it and it should be obvious to people. But I'll let others weigh in on whether it should be kept. $\endgroup$ – GentlePurpleRain Sep 28 '16 at 15:51

    $\begingroup$ status-completed: Deusovi and I have got rid of the Pokemon tag from all the questions which had it. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Oct 1 '16 at 21:48

No we do not need the tag

While is quite a broad subject, it is still too specific

Pokemon can relate to many things, but can be replaced for each one:

And if the question wants to specifically mention pokemon, then it can say so in the title or in the question...

We shouldn't have to rely on the tags to solve the puzzle

If we do then the question is unclear...

    $\begingroup$ The tag wasn't very effective. $\endgroup$ – Robert Columbia Oct 8 '16 at 1:38
  • $\begingroup$ Maybe Geography or Geocaching could be applied to include Pokemon "Go" ? $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Jan 31 '17 at 20:45

    $\begingroup$ @AlwaysConfused good point I'll add that $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Jan 31 '17 at 20:56
  • $\begingroup$ According to the tag wikis, maybe Geocaching is better tag (than geography) to describe pokemon Go? $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Feb 1 '17 at 4:56
