This is awarded to contributors whose contributions to Bulbapedia are substantive, major, and numerous. After all, what is an encyclopedia without facts and figures?
Best contributor of 2005: Zeta, ranked 2nd by count and 1st by size, accounting for 6.3% of all counted edits - or in more solid terms - 604,387 bytes added through 1751 edits.
Best new contributor
This is awarded to contributor who seem to be well-versed with MediaWiki, Bulbapedia norms and policies from the moment they start contributing, and who have since made many more good contributions.
Best new contributors of 2005: Ferret, once the developer of a Pokémon encyclopedia with an uncanny similarity to Bulbapedia, naturally had an a head start when he came to Bulbapedia. The exact same thing could be said of Jellochuu, and so they both share the award for 2005.

We would also like to specially thank two people for contributions that do not fit into any of the above categories:
Meowth346 of Pokémon Forever, possibly the earliest to conceive the idea of a publicly editable Pokémon website, for having supported Bulbapedia in its early stages. He may have left disappointed at the Pokémon community, but we are grateful for what he has contributed to us.
