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.

Another year already? Time sure keeps on flying when there's so much Pokémon fun to be had! It's definitely been a great 13th year for Bulbapedia!

In 2017, Bulbapedia grew by an astounding 5000+ articles, surpassing my expectations significantly! This last year has definitely been a major one for the growth and continued development of Bulbapedia.

With Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, the 20th season of the English dub of the Pokémon anime, five new English TCG sets, and countless other releases in all parts of the globe this last year, there's certainly been much for Pokémon fans to enjoy and much for Bulbapedia to cover!

Of course, none of this would be possible without the people who help to drive the continued development and updating of Bulbapedia. The Pokémon fandom is amazingly strong, and it definitely shows with just how much Pokémon information this community-driven encyclopedia has been able to document over these last 13 years.

While we're saying goodbye to Bulbapedia's 13th year, I know that we can welcome in the 14th year with the awesomeness that only the Pokémon fandom can provide. Let's make 2018 an awesome one!

Kogoro
Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
