Mikuri (IRL: Diego) is a recurring contributor in both the pedia and the Archives. He is a Brazilian guy who first appeared on August 6, 2011. He can also be found on the forums, where he regularly writes walls complaining about everything he dislikes in the Pokémon Anime and Manga section.


Mikuri joined Bulbapedia on August 6, 2011, a time in which the majority of his edits consisted of adding names of Brazilian voice actors and interwiki links to the now defunct LANDpedia. Later that year, on November 14, 2011, he joined the forums in hopes of improving his English. In March of the following year, he started doing bigger edits to Bulbapedia as he felt his English was half decent.

Some time after that he became a member of Project Anime, editing the articles of main characters and their Pokémon, as well as anime-exclusive Pokémon competitions and locations. He also helped with game-related content, and in July he was invited to join the staff as a Junior Administrator to help with the Japanese release of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.

Mikuri didn't enjoy the Generation V core series games as much as their predecessors, and he hated everything about the Best Wishes series, especially Iris. As a result, he stopped caring and decided to wait not so patiently for the next generation. His contributions dropped significantly. In fact, he kinda stopped editing, appearing very briefly just to fix a thing or two.

Fortunately [for whom?], the Generation VI games and the XY series brought him back. He currently helps the Project Anime by turning old, neglected pages into good, detailed articles.


Mikuri is often among the top contributors of the month, but he doesn't really care. He knows anyone can get there with edits that were undone and he thinks it encourages people to focus on quantity instead of quality. He would rather have the Golden Bulbasaur Award back as he loves award shows. He also thinks having a "pages which I started" section on user pages is a bad thing, as there are users who create pages with little to no information just to expand their list.

Mikuri is a big fan of the Pokémon anime, having watched it since he was a little kid. It was the anime that introduced him to the franchise and he still watches its episodes and movies to this day. The Diamond & Pearl series is undoubtedly his favorite anime series and Dawn is his favorite anime character.

The first game he played was Pokémon Ruby Version and he fell in love with the Hoenn region and the Pokémon found there. His favorite Pokémon is Delcatty and he usually catches Pokémon for their look. He doesn't play competitively and he couldn't care less about stats and effort values.
