April 1, 2013 was an April Fools' Day that fell on a Monday. In the Pokémon fandom, some websites pulled hoaxes on gullible fans.
- Bulbanews posted an article about Team Plasma attempting a Bulbagarden takeover.
- Bulbagarden forums were permanently changed to become Bananagarden Forums, which was used in 2007, with the forum taking on an appearance based on bananas. Along with that:
- Some forum sections were replaced with non-Pokémon related sections.
- Team Aqua and Team Magma used the Video Games section to recruit members for their cause.
- It was said that the Fun&Games forum would be closing.
Other fan sites
- Psypoke featured a Slowpoke crawling across the bottom of the site and forums with the message "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" on April 2, 2013 after not running a prank on April 1.
- Pokémon posted on the official Facebook fanpage news that revealed several colleges would be offering courses in Pokémon mastery.
