@pf9 Ah, sorry for getting confused.
That makes sense for Popplio.
@Back Set 1 I don't see why not.

I'll probably include info on Pokemon rescuers/rescue organizations in my Pokemon Zoos article, since many zoos in real life care for rescued wild animals.
I'll call dibs on Inter Pol (my nickname for the International Polics) after I finish the Aether article. That way I have as much time as possible to work on it.
I'm going to put a dibs on the Spoink line and Cutiefly line if noone objects.
Back Set go ahead and claim dibs on it now, then when you're done with Aether, refresh your claim on it I've refreshed claims before. The Dibs page explicitly states you are free to bump the date if you haven't gotten around to an article yet but are still active in the Project.

Since I mention it in several of my other articles, I'm claiming dibs on an article about the Kalos Bat Pokemon Clinic.
Pokémon Zoos has been finished
Pokémon zoos, as one might think, are zoos where Pokémon are put on display. As with zoos in other parts of the world, Pokémon zoos are generally open to the public, and there is least one in each major region of the Pokémon world. These are different from Safari Zones, which are Pokémon preserves where Trainers can capture Pokémon.
In order to emulate zoos in other parts of the world, the Pokémon on display are generally limited to those based on organisms that are members of the animal kingdom. Both vertebrate and invertebrate Pokémon can be seen at Pokémon zoos. The Pokémon on display will generally be based on animals that you typically see at zoos in other parts of the world.
The Pokémon are placed in enclosures that replicate their natural environment.
Conservation of rare Pokémon species is another reason for Pokémon zoos existing.
All Pokémon zoos must meet strict standards for maintaining the welfare of the Pokémon on display, set by the Association of Pokémon Zoos and Pokéquariums, as well as several government agencies. Generally each zoo does meet these standards, and all employees that handle the Pokémon must be trained vigorously and properly.
Decidueye, Noctowl, Empoleon, Toucannon, Hawlucha, Braviary, Chatot, Dodrio and Delibird, along with any predecessor evolutions are among the typical bird Pokémon found at Pokémon zoos.
Toxicroak, Politoed, and Salazzle, along with predecessor evolutions are amphibian Pokémon that can be found at Pokémon Zoos.
Many Pokémon zoos have aquarium sections. Just about any fish Pokémon can be found in these sections.
Blastoise, Torterra, Turtonator, Feraligatr, Torkoal, Arbok, Seviper, Krookodile, Serperior, and Kecleon, along with predecessor evolutions where applicable, are among the typical reptilian Pokémon that can be found at Pokémon Zoos.
Ursaring, Pangoro, Beartic, Samurott, Bewear, Incineroar, Pyroar, Luxray, Absol, Zangoose, Gumshoos, Liepard, Persian, Zoroark, Ninetales, all of Eevee's evolved forms, Lycanroc, Mightyena, Manectric, Primeape, Passimian, Ambipom, Infernape, the elemental monkeys, Slaking, Darmanitan, Togedemaru, Kangaskhan, Zebstrika, Rhydon, Bouffalant, Girafarig, Camerupt, Stantler, Sawsbuck, Hippowdon, Emboar, Dewgong, Walrein, Primarina, Sandslash, Komola, Heatmor, Crobat, Swoobat, Noivern and Donphan, and any predecessor evolutions, are among the mammalian Pokémon you could see at Pokémon Zoos.
Closely related to Pokémon zoos are wild Pokémon rescue organizations, which Pokémon zoos themselves are. Wild Pokémon rescue organizations rescue sick, injured and orphaned wild Pokémon, and nurse them back to health and/or hand-raise them. Some organizations deal with all species of Pokémon, others deal with certain Pokémon only (like Pokémon based on certain animals), one such organization is the Kalos Bat Pokémon Clinic in Kalos, which deals with bat Pokémon.

So is Pokémon as Pets
A number of Pokémon species have been domesticated to be kept as pets in the home as an alternative to using them in battle. Those who keep these Pokémon as pets feel that doing so is a less strenuous environment for the Pokémon than having it battle all the time.
Some pet Pokémon are small enough that they can be kept in cages. If done so, they must be cleaned every so often to prevent sickness.
Food for pet Pokémon varies. All Pokémon that have been domesticated have had special types of food made for them, but some Pokémon can be offered select human foods. Given that Pokémon are more resilient than the animals they are based on, their stomachs should be more tolerable of a number of human foods than said animals. However, one thing that remains true is the toxicity of chocolate to a number of Pokémon (with the notable exception of Lucario).
In many countries, baby mice and rats are sold as food for a number of pets. Things are different in the Pokémon world: the sale of baby rodent Pokémon as pet food is illegal, because many of these Pokémon are popular among the people of the Pokémon world, in particular Pichu and its evolution Pikachu.
Cat Pokémon can be trained to use litter boxes, like cats in other parts of the world.
Dog Pokémon must be walked every now and then.
Pet Pokémon can overall live far longer lives than their animal counterparts.
Generally, the Pokémon that have been sold as pets are Pokémon based on animals that are pets in other parts of the world.
Pokémon based on lizards, like Charmander, its evolved form Charmeleon, and Kecleon are sold as pets. However, extra precautions must be taken with Charmander and Charmeleon, due to the flames on their tails and their fire abilities overall. Everstones must be given to Charmeleon to prevent evolution into Charizard.
The turtle Pokémon Squirtle and Turtwig are also popular, as are the snakes Ekans, Arbok, Seviper, and Snivy that have been given Everstones.
Poliwag and its evolutions are the only amphibian Pokémon generally popular as pets, since others are poisonous (although the poison isn't an issue for the snakes).
Goldeen and its evolution Seaking, along with Luvdisc, Bruxish and the Finneon line are the most popular fish Pokémon as pets.
Chatot, Torchic, Ducklett, Pidgey, Spearow, Farfetch'd, Starly, and Pidove are among the popular pet bird Pokémon.
The most common pet Pokémon are mammalian Pokémon. Numerous Pokémon are based on cats: Meowth (with Everstone), Skitty, Delcatty, Purrloin, Litten, Torracat (with Everstone), Glameow, Purugly, Espurr, and Meowstic.
A number of dog Pokémon exist as well: Growlithe, Arcanine, Electrike, Manectric, Rockruff (with Everstone), Houndour, Houndoom, Lillipup, Herdier, Stoutland, Snubbull, and Granbull.
Several Pokémon based on smaller mammals are also kept as pets: Pichu, Pikachu, Rattata, Raticate, Dedenne, Buneary, Lopunny, Azurill, Marill, Azumarill, Cinccino, Minccino, Bunnelby, Diggersby, Plusle, Minun, Chespin (with Everstone), Sentret, Furret, Mienfoo, and Mienshao.
Some hoofed Pokémon, including Ponyta, Rapidash, Skiddo, Gogoat, Mareep, Tepig, Pignite and Mudbray have also been domesticated.
Some species of mammalian Pokémon, such as those based on rodents, love company, so it is advisable to get more than one of these Pokémon. Females will get along even if they are not from the same litter, males in certain species will fight if they are not from the same litter unless they are neutered. Mixing males and females if you're not breeding is not advisable without spaying and neutering (see below).
As mentioned earlier, some Pokémon should be given Everstones, because their evolved forms are not desirable as pets.
Sometimes, you will take home a pet female mammalian Pokémon, and you won't realize she is pregnant until it is too late. This is especially common in the case of rodent and rabbit Pokémon.
When this happens, leave the mother to raise her babies, and when they are old enough, separate the males from females in species that require it. You may choose to keep the offspring or adopt them out.
Sometimes, people will adopt a male and a female of the same species for the explicit purpose of breeding.
In order to prevent unwanted pregnancies, it is best to spay or neuter your pet mammalian Pokémon.

I think you forgot about Purrloin for the Pets article.
Petition for an entry on this very pokedex as a collab.
I came up with the idea a few days ago but it took me awhile to decide if I should say ot.
What did you have in mind?
I'm not exactly sure yet.
I was thinking a sort of In-Universe history and explanation of this Dex. Cause we know what it is Out-Of-Universe, but what about In-Universe? How do people access it? Is it a site, like this very wiki, or a machine, like the game Pokčdexes? Who is behind this Dex? Is it a corporation, a group of dedicated scientists and researchers, or something else? All that jazz and maybe a bit more.
Ah, that sounds very interesting! Can't wait to see what people have in mind.
I feel like that would go a bit too far into fic writing when that's not really the purpose of this project.
Yeah, I see your point.
@pf9 As a minor thing, you spelled Minun's name wrong.
Kalos Bat Pokémon Clinic is done
The Kalos Bat Pokémon Clinic is quite possibly the most famous veterinary clinic in the Pokémon world that deals specifically with bat Pokémon. It takes in sick, injured, and orphaned bat Pokémon from all evolutionary lines and nurses them back to health. Many of the specimen are released to the wild once this happens.
The Clinic has a small number of volunteers, working long hours and very hard to nurse the wild bat Pokémon they bring in.
The orphaned Zubat, Woobat and Noibat pups they take in are wrapped in blankets and given a form of pacifier to make them feel loved and to simulate holding onto and being held by their mothers. Pups can be orphaned for many reasons, common reasons for being orphaned are extreme heat events or their mothers unwittingly landing on power lines (which the pups generally survive).
The pups are fed Gogoat milk, the milk thought to be closest to mother's milk for orphaned baby mammalian Pokémon, from small bottles, if they are still at the age where they are on milk.
Once they get to weaning age, Zubat pups are fed the meat of Bug-type Pokémon, as well as blood from certain mammalian Pokémon species while Woobat and Noibat pups transition to eating fruit.
We also get in some sick and injured Zubat, Woobat and Noibat that have weaned off milk, called juveniles or adolescents.
Many sick and injured adults, of the Golbat, Crobat, Swoobat and Noivern stages of their respective evolutionary lines are taken in too. A number of these are permanent residents, including former zoo residents.
Some of the adult female bat Pokémon in the care of the clinic are themselves raising pups. The mothers can be rescued from the wild, other times these are permanent residents that have reproduced frequently.
Each evolutionary line of bat Pokémon has their own aviary, so it makes finding a particular specimen easier.
The Kalos Bat Pokémon Clinic has been featured in media across the Pokémon world, both in print and on television, showing their efforts in nursing bat Pokémon back to health. The Clinic also has social media accounts, including a YouTube account where they show off many of the bat Pokémon they rescue or are permanent residents.
The Clinic's primary source of funding is donations, and they come quite often and are very large at times.

You missed an Australia in there.
Here is what I have so far for Magmar. Please suggest additions.
Written by AgentParadox. If you have any ideas for revisions or edits, send me a PM. If I don't respond... Consult the thread.

Anybody got any ideas for the Magmar line I could add?
EDIT: I got a clue from a Pokédex entry that Magmortar is predatory, but otherwise I have nothing I could easily work off of for the diet. I have the idea that Magby seems like the type of Pokémon to roast berries, similar to Pikachu using its electricity, which could show a herbivore-carnivore/omnivore-carnivore evolution, but no other details. Would Magmar and Magmortar be omnivorous like most Pokémon? And if so, do they prefer meat to plant matter, prefer plant matter to meat, or are they just as likely to lean either way, either by default or in the face of availability issues?

Also, I'm well aware that in its current state, bits of the article contradict each other, but linking it better without being too repetitive might be a challenge.
I'd get rid of the blackface reference.
Done and done. It was probably a complete coincidence that it even remotely resembled that, and now that I think about it, it's probably just an eye mask, given that most of the rest of the head is obscured by the orange hair (with a yellow stripe).
