A stub is a very short article, often two paragraph or less, containing an insufficient amount of information. You can help Bulbapedia by finding stubs and editing them, adding more information, and thereby expanding them. As Bulbapedia is a collaborative encyclopedia, any user can contribute to any article.

The page you were previously visiting is probably a stub. You can help Bulbapedia grow by clicking the "back" button on your browser and then expanding that page.

If you create an article that is a stub, please put this at the end of the article: {{stub}}. Doing so will display this message:

If you saw that message on the article, but the article is developed well beyond stub status, please feel free to remove the tag. If the article is much longer than a stub but still incomplete, rather than marking it as a stub, please add the {{incomplete}} template to the beginning of the article.

There are different stub messages and categories for different types of articles:

  • {{gamestub}} - game-related articles
  • {{animestub}} - anime-related articles
  • {{mangastub}} - manga-related articles
  • {{locationstub}} - location articles
  • {{shippingstub}} - shipping-related articles
  • {{songstub}} - song articles
    • {{jasongstub}} - Japanese song articles
  • {{TCGstub}} - TCG-related articles
  • {{glitchstub}} - glitch-related articles

Featured stub

In order to improve Bulbapedia, a random stub, or the featured stub, is featured on the Main Page. It is a chosen stub that needs improvement. Any user is allowed to improve the article, and it is appreciated if you decide to do so; however, only administrators can remove the stub notice. Any administrator can remove the stub tag at any time, but they must switch the stub on the main page.

Thank you for helping Bulbapedia grow!
