The Cave of Dragonflies is a Pokémon fan site run and managed by Butterfree, better known under the identities of Dragonfree and Antialiasis.
The site focuses primarily on the Pokémon games and various original theories and opinions by the webmistress.
The Cave of Dragonflies started on November 2nd, 2002 as a website called Butterfree's Pokémon Site, later proclaimed by Butterfree herself on the Site History page to have had "eye-hurting background colors" and "horrid browser support". It has been continuously updated ever since, on average, slightly less than seven times a month.
The original inspiration to create it was Mew's Hangout, but the two are nonetheless not strikingly similar, Mew's Hangout focusing more on art and imagery but The Cave of Dragonflies more on the written word.
In its history, the site has faced some temporary server difficulties, but has never experienced a long period of downtime. The site possesses over 100 pages of content in all, however quite a few are not accessible from the main site now as they have been taken down for one reason or another.
Butterfree also has created at least two fanfics; a large, elaborate fanfic known as The Quest for the Legends and a Pokémorph deconstruction fanfic called Morphic. There is also the Cave of Speculative Theories, a mini-site connected to the main Cave of Dragonflies that details new events in the Pokémon franchise, particularly new games, and Butterfree's reactions and opinions to them.
