Fansites

Bulbagarden

  • 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
