The Pokédex Extended Fanon Edition is a project on TvTropes to expand on the canon Pokédex's content. All articles are written from a scientific perspective, as if the contributor was a researcher. It is available here [Alt Wiki].
There is an In-Universe version existing in WAAPT, called either PEFE (the backronym varies from person to person) or the Extended Pokédex project, as acknowledging the fact that it's fanon would be breaking the fourth wall.
The WAAPT version of PEFE was founded by Tangent, Tracer, Tagg and Silent who were assigned by the cool old guys to rework the information of the Pokédex (because, really). PEFE eventually ended up taking the immeasurable assets of the Pokefutures corrupt corporation and became a force for the expansion of knowledge for happiness.
The headquarters of the PEFE Foundation are in [REDACTED]. There are various other facilities around the world, for example in Valencia Island and in Goldenrod City.
Psychology and Behavioral Analysis
This department is headed by Tracer, and deals with the psychological health of Pokémon.
Field Research and Wilderness Survival
This department is headed by Tagg, and deals with observing Pokémon in their natural habitats as well as how to survive in harsh environments.
Research and Development
The PEFE's official mad science department, dealing in the creation of advanced technology.
The original PEFE HQ prior to the acquisition of PEFE Island is still owned by the PEFE.
At least one facility is known to be in Goldenrod, where Silent is most often seen.
There is a known PEFE facility in Slateport, which has a Wailord skeleton on display.
One facility is known to be in Mistralton.
The main PEFE facility is in Lumiose.
Holon City has a relatively neglected branch of the PEFE within its city limits.
In Other Universes
In the AU
Within the AU Tangent hadn't met Basket and therefore was unable to get over his inability to handle mons, making him only a photographer within the organization. As a result, during the Pokefutures assault, PEFeDOS wasn't completely destroyed as she was in the OU, and that universe's Headmaster decided to use her within PEFE HQ. This horrifically backfired when the AI decided to rebel, killing a number of researchers either directly or through her sadistic testing regimen involving the use of Portal Devices. This came to an end once the reunited OU PEFE Founders, Luke, Wolf, and their mons put an end to PEFeDOS. It served as the main edge the Resistance had against Scolemis and later Napoleon due to its portal technology combined with the Sinnoh Cubone tribe's space tunnels.
Within the timeline that became PMD-B, the forces of the Seven Jerk Dragons managed to cripple the facility in a lightning blow and turned everyone into mons, preventing any chance of turning the transfigured humans back to normal. Eventually the various mons and humons ended up creating numerous communities within the modules of the facility.
At least one paper version of the PEFE's article database eventually ended up in Ammy's possession within her cave.
In the Other!Verse
PEFE is quite a minor thing in the Other!verse in comparison to the original timeline. Tagg is the leader of the organization but most of the other's incarnations are not affiliated with it. While a respected organization, it happens to be constantly scrounging for funds because of its lack of Pokefutures resources.
- The unofficial motto of the PEFE is "For Discovery! For Knowledge!! FOR POKÉMON!!!"
