Poképédia is a French language online encyclopedia for information on Pokémon—including information on the games, anime, TCG, as well as fandom and meta. It is the French language member of Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis. The name Poképédia is a portmanteau of Pokémon and Encyclopedia, being a pun on the name of Wikipedia. Poképédia's mascot and logo is Uxie.

History

Poképédia was conceived by username Misdre on the 2nd of August 2007 and publicly opened on 24 September 2007 with just over 80 articles and only a few members. It became a member of Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis on September 28, 2007.

Poképédia's main page, as seen on 27th December 2008

On 27 March 2008, Poképédia reached their 1000th article. Poképédia introduced many projects including Project Pokédex, Anime Project and Project BerryDex.

As of mid-December, 2008, Poképédia contained over 1,500 articles and had 341 registered users as of Poképédia's Statistics. While many of its articles are still stubs, its Pokémon pages have thorough illustrations of generational artwork and sprites (including Shiny Pokémon), and characters' Pokémon in the games and anime. Its main page has a slightly different format than its English language counterpart, as Poképédia has a column of subjects with illustrated links to portals on the right. Subjects on the left-hand side include editorials, recent discoveries, and works in progress (éditorial, découverte, et travail en cours).

As of November 2009, Poképédia has over 3,000 articles.

Poképédia's logo and mascot is an Uxie wearing a puzzle piece around its neck. Uxie was chosen for being the Knowledge Pokémon, as Poképédia intends to be the largest French knowledge base on Pokémon. Strangely, however, Uxie has its eyes open in the logo, where the Pokédex states that anyone who sees its eyes open will lose their memory. Like the other members of its trio, it is pictured with golden eyes, though this is not known to be official.

The puzzle piece around the Uxie's neck may symbolize either the missing pieces of information that are needed to complete Poképédia, or be a reference to Wikipedia's logo, which is a sphere comprised of puzzle pieces.
