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 26,316 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.

It's once again time for a very big change for the betterment of the Bulbapedia experience! Projects are undergoing a major overhaul in order to make them more user-friendly. Some of the major changes include:

  • Updated design: To better separate sections, Projects will now feature a design similar to the Bulbapedia Main Page.
  • Monthly goals: Each month, Projects will designate goals to be accomplished.
  • Retirement of the Project Leader position: With the removal of the Project Leader position, Projects will now be run by the staff. Contact lists have been added to make staff contact easier.
  • Removal of member lists: Member lists were causing significant problems with the projects, so they have been replaced with categories that can be added through use of {{User Project Member}}.

We hope to have all Projects converted to the new format before the beginning of October. If you have any questions or concerns regarding Projects, please contact Editor-in-Chief, Kogoro, or Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Zesty Cactus.

Last, but certainly not least, we would also like to express our sincerest gratitude to all users who have served as Project Leaders since the position's founding in January 2009. Thank you for all of your dedication and hard work towards building the Projects up, and helping to make them successful.
