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 43,918 articles on a range of Pokémon-related topics.

Message from the Editor
March 3 015

Howdy everyone. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Pokemaster97 and I am the current Editor in Chief of Bulbapedia.

With the 25th Anniversary of Pokémon and Sinnoh remakes (and a prequel!) confirmed, now is a more exciting time than ever for the Bulba community. Just as Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl put a new spin on familiar stomping grounds, a few familiar faces on Bulbapedia will be shifting into new roles. Bulbagarden Chief of Staff and former Editor-in-Chief Kogoro has graciously decided to remain on board as Interim Deputy Editor-in-Chief. Kogoro brings over a decade of experience and expertise and I am eternally grateful she has decided to stick around in this role.

As we move further along into 2021 and with a pending wiki update on the horizon, user experience has been a continued focus for Bulbapedia staff. In order to increase attention to these efforts, the Editorial Board will be expanding with the addition of two Special Assistant roles. These members will function as members at large on the board and will work on tasks such as:

  • Staff drives/staff development
  • Reviewing and updating policies (ongoing policy overhaul)
  • Creating guides and user resources
  • Assisting the Social Media team with running Bulbapedia’s social accounts/content creation

Please help me congratulate Spriteit and SnorlaxMonster who will be joining the Editorial Board in this role! I look forward to how Bulbapedia will continue to grow with your additions.

I end off by thanking everyone for their continued contributions and support to Bulbapedia. We wouldn’t be half of what we are without you.

Pokemaster97
Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
