Welcome to Bulbapedia!
the community driven Pokémon encyclopedia

Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia about Pokémon to which anyone can contribute. Since its launch in February 2005, it has grown to become one of the largest Pokémon resources on the internet. As part of Bulbagarden, this ever-growing wiki is supported by Bulbanews, Bulbagarden Archives, and the Bulbagarden forums. You're welcome to browse for a while, if you wish, or make an account to start editing pages.

We have 28,215 articles on a range of Pokémon-related topics.

If you have any questions, first see the FAQ page. If this doesn't help, find an active staff member. They'll point you in the right direction.

Effective immediately, new requirements regarding the use of four templates that are extremely important to the continued improvement of Bulbapedia have been mandated:

When using the templates {{Split}}, {{Merge}}, {{Move}}, and {{DiscussDelete}} to nominate articles for administrative action, a section outlining the rationale for the nomination must be added to the article's talk page. Nominations lacking an outlined rationale will no longer be considered.

An outlined rationale helps to expedite administrative action, and helps to prevent confusion and misunderstandings that can result in mistakes. Keep in mind, the staff aren't mind readers, and not every nomination reason is obvious.
