It’s an exciting time to be a Pokémon fan - not only is Ash finally the World Champion after more than two decades, but Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are finally here!
The wiki staff team have been hard at work getting ready for the swathe of new information and content that’s about to hit us, and as ever we rely on the contributions of editors to ensure Bulbapedia is useful to fans as they venture through Paldea. Before the arrival of the new generation, here are a few updates that you should know about.
Firstly, we are happy again to be able to report that the wiki will once again remain open for editing during the release period. We hope you can help! If you’re planning on uploading information , we have a few key asks and reminders for you to keep in mind:
- Please ensure that the information you upload is from reputable original sources and not simply lifted from other fansites
- Please respect the directions of the Staff team; some of our rules and processes might not be obvious at first glance, but the team is there to help you perfect your contributions
- Please follow the code of conduct and the manual of style at all times!
- Please report any performance issues or bad ad activity to staff
In other news, in an effort to do some fall cleaning in preparation for Scarlet & Violet’s release, the staff will be tackling our backlog of pages needing attention. If you have any candidates you had comments or thoughts about, please do not hesitate to share on the relevant talk page or with a member of staff so we can ensure your input is kept in mind.
Finally, it is with sadness that I announce that long-time staff member Adil has decided he would step-down from his role as Head of Anime. Adil has been a staff member for over 11 years and we are happy to hear he’s agreed to sticking around in a lesser capacity. Taking his place is another long time and hard working staff member doing great work. Please help me congratulate Force Fire, who has agreed to step in as the new Head of Anime. Congratulations!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out via our Discord or forums. Good treasure hunting, Trainers!
- Editor in Chief, Bulbapedia
