Welcome to Bulbapedia!
the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia about Pokémon to which anyone can contribute. Since its launch in February 2005, it has grown to become one of the largest Pokémon resources on the internet. As part of Bulbagarden, this ever-growing wiki is supported by Bulbanews, Bulbagarden Archives, and the Bulbagarden forums. You're welcome to browse for a while, if you wish, or make an account to start editing pages.

We have 45,193 articles on a range of Pokémon-related topics.

If you have any questions, first see the FAQ page. If this doesn't help, find an active staff member. They'll point you in the right direction.

Happy November!

As Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl officially hit store shelves, we have some Bulbapedia updates to share.

This year, Bulbapedia will not be locking down for the new game release. It looks like these games won't introduce mechanical differences that will require big changes to pages as we've seen in times past. As a result, we are experimenting with the wiki remaining open and allowing folks to jump in head first with adding new information. If you're new to editing, please do not add information taken from other fansites - we don't allow plagiarism. This includes text, images, and data. Please reach out to a member of Staff if you are looking for ideas of specific tasks or projects we are looking for help with.

In line with encouraging a wider range of users to contribute during the game release period, we have also decided to trial a new software for the Bulbagarden Archives that allows all users to upload images; non-autoconfirmed users will have images placed in a moderation queue. Staff members will review and approve images if they are appropriate. As this feature is still undergoing testing, please report any feedback or issues you may experience with a member of Staff so it may be passed along to our technical team to address.

We're just as excited as you for new games - have fun being back in Sinnoh, and happy editing!

Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
