After returning to the fan site scene earlier this month, Japanese site Pokeani has been disabled due to a lapse in domain registration.

As noted on Pokeani's front page upon its revival, the domain name was set to expire on Jan. 8, and it could take weeks to reinstate the address. At present, a parked page has taken over Pokeani's former address. It is expected that the Pokeani webmaster, Yōnansu, has made arrangements to continue the site's work elsewhere or otherwise retrieve the domain name. Also, it has been hinted that a wiki may be in development.

Pokeani was, at one time, a leading source of Japanese Pokémon information. It resumed operations after a two-year hiatus on Jan. 1.
