Serebii.net or SPP (Serebii's Pokémon Page/Place/Palace) is a fan site created by Serebii in the fall of 1999 when many Pokémon sites were quickly starting to appear. The site first gained popularity as a GeoCities site, where it was also a member of the Articuno Island network.

It is a well known source for anime, games, and TCG information. The website is updated on an almost daily basis.

It also had a close affiliation with the short lived Pokémon Official Magazine in the UK. Its mascot Pokémon is Celebi, and it has recently created a popular program called Pokéarth.

Controversy

Serebii.net has occasionally been the center of controversy, as its webmaster has faced accusations of theft in the past. Serebii, the owner, claims that he has not personally stolen anything since mid-2002. Since mid-2002, there however has been at least one case of material appearing on Serebii's site that had been created by another fansite; however Serebii has stated that this resulted from the work of unscrupulous fans stealing the material from the original site and passing them along to him, without informing him of the source. Although he has shown reluctance to remove such material at times, Serebii eventually accepts to do so in the vast majority of cases.Serebii.net is very protective over it's content on it's site , before every article it displays a message that you can not steal its content and also you can't copy its content as the ability to right-click on the site has been disabled.

Serebii.net is also well known for presenting an Advent Calendar every December.

Server issues

Serebii.net has suffered from a number of server problems since it burst into the ranks of the major Pokémon sites in 2002. Up until March 2003, its uptime could be called sporadic at best, with large downtimes of up to 6 months, due primarily to Serebii.net outgrowing a sequence of servers that it was being hosted on for no charge.

Due to Serebii's dire situation, Ledian_X introduced Craig Maloof to Serebii, who made an offer to pay for Serebii's server costs. (Craig had previously made this offer towards Archaic for Bulbagarden, though this offer was rejected.) Since that time, Serebii.net has been hosted on Craig's own private servers, with the hosting bills apparently being paid for via the single Google AdWords banner on every page of the site and forums.

In Early 2006, after the site had made enough excess to pay Craig back for the time he personally funded the servers, it was decided to move the servers onto servers under the sole control of Serebii, with assistance from ricocheting, a guy who had helped Craig run his servers in the past.

Since then, the site's reach expanded causing many more server issues noted by many users in commencing at the release of Diamond & Pearl in Japan and many users trading in the sites forums. These issues are still plaguing the site at time of writing and are in the process of being resolved. The trading problem, however, has been resolved by different methods, such as sorting Pokémon and not allowing personal trade topics.
