Poképédia is a French online encyclopedia for information on Pokémon—including information on the games, anime, TCG, as well as fandom and meta. The name Poképédia is a portmanteau of Pokémon and Encyclopedia.
Poképédia was conceived by username Misdre on August 2, 2007 and publicly opened on September 24, 2007 with just over 80 articles and only a few members. It became a member of Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis on September 28, 2007.
On March 27, 2008, Poképédia reached their 1000th article. Poképédia introduced many projects including Project Pokédex, Anime Project and Project BerryDex.
As of mid-December 2008, Poképédia contained over 1,500 articles and had 341 registered users as of Poképédia's Statistics. Its Pokémon pages have thorough illustrations of generational artwork and sprites (including Shiny Pokémon), and characters' Pokémon in the games and anime. Its main page has a slightly different format than its English language counterpart, as Poképédia has a column of subjects with illustrated links to portals on the right. Subjects on the left-hand side include editorials, recent discoveries, and works in progress (éditorial, découverte, et travail en cours).
Poképédia reached their 30000th article on July 15, 2020.
Poképédia's logo and mascot is a Uxie wearing a puzzle piece around its neck. Uxie was chosen for being the Knowledge Pokémon, as Poképédia intends to be the largest French knowledge base on Pokémon. Strangely, however, Uxie has its eyes open in the logo, where the Pokédex states that anyone who sees its eyes open will lose their memory. Like the other members of its trio, it is pictured with golden eyes, though this is not known to be official.
The puzzle piece around the Uxie's neck, similar to the ones in Wikipedia's logo, symbolizes the cooperation needed by all their users in order to help Poképedia grow.
