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

Annddddd we’re back! As some of you may have witnessed over the past 48 hours or so, Team Rainbow Rocket interrupted and temporarily gained access to Bulbapedia during our attempt at performing our scheduled site update.  
   −
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 {{u|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.

Fear not however, Bulbapedia staff has regained control of the site once again. However, there were more damage to the servers done than expected and we’ll have to keep editing locked for a *bit* longer as we repair and shore up our defenses to prevent an incident like this from occurring again. Stay tuned for a full status update later this week once this work is complete.

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:

Thank you again for your patience and we can’t wait to be open for business again soon!
 
  −
* 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 {{u|Spriteit}} and {{u|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.
