Happy February!

And Happy 18th anniversary to Bulbapedia! It’s incredible to believe back in 2005, during Bulbapedia’s beginnings, we were preparing to close out Generation III and awaiting the North American release of Pokémon Emerald. Today, we're 49,000 articles strong and fully immersed in Generation IX with Pokémon Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. As we celebrate another year around the sun, it would be egregious of us to not stop and take a moment to celebrate you, our users who work hard and contribute to Bulbapedia’s coverage day in and day out.

While our coverage of Scarlet and Violet is ongoing, it would be impossible to have covered as much as we have without your contributions. So for every dex entry entered, every map uploaded, every biology section written, every item sprite added and every edit in between, we say - thank you. Your time and efforts are appreciated and we would be nowhere near the community we are today without you.

Editor in Chief, Bulbapedia
