Administrators of Bulbapedia are users who have been granted certain permissions by the Editorial Board. An administrator's responsibilities number greatly, being able to protect pages both from creation and editing, delete pages from view, block and unblock users, check a user's IP address, and put Bulbapedia into staff-only lockdown, among others.
The lowest of the "true" ranks of Bulbapedia staff, Administrators are held to strict scrutiny by the Editorial Board, and may be granted their powers through moving up from the Junior Administrator rank.
