Wow, has it already been a whole year? It has flown by so quickly, though we have certainly made a lot of progress in this short time. With Bulbapedia reaching its 10 year anniversary just three days ago, it has definitely been an eventful few days around here!

On a global scale; Bulbapedia has grown by over 1600 articles in this past year! Additionally, the Editorial Board has been working diligently on a number of different behind the scenes tasks. The conversion of the Projects into a more uniform and organized feature has been steadily moving along, with a few minor Projects still awaiting conversion to the new format. The board has also been working through the candidates for moving, merging, splitting, and mainspacing, and significant progress has been made on this extremely massive task.

For the games section; the most important release in the past year can only be Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Along with all of the Hoenn-related updates, many Generation VI models have been uploaded and added to their respective species pages. Bulbapedia has also seen the releases of Pokémon Battle Trozei, Pokémon Art Academy, Pokémon: Battle Nine, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, with articles for all of these titles created. I would like to personally thank everyone who has helped out on any game-related article in the past year, and hope that you will all continue to help out in the next year!

For the anime section; we have seen 47 episodes air in Japan, 48 episodes air in North America, and the release of Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction in both Japanese and English. This has resulted in over 70 character/Pokémon articles being created and over 80 character/Pokémon articles improved on Bulbapedia. With the finale of Season 17 and the premiere of Season 18 behind us, the next year is definitely going to be eventful for the Pokémon anime! I would also like to personally thank everyone who has put their time into helping out Bulbapedia's anime section, I hope you will help out just as much in the next year!

For the manga section; we have seen 8 volumes and 2 mini-volumes release in Japan, and 13 volumes and 7 mini-volumes release in English. Together this has covered over 216 chapters being added and/or improved on Bulbapedia, which is nothing short of awesome! With plenty of manga volumes and chapters set to be released in 2015, the manga section will continue to grow and improve in the next year. To everyone who has helped our manga section grow during the last year; your efforts are greatly appreciated, and I hope to see everyone working just as hard in the next year!

For the TCG section; we have seen four major expansions and one sub-expansion release in Japan, four major expansions release in English, and several different promotions. That covers an almost unbelievable grand total of 1473 cards, including reprints! The TCG section certainly won't be slowing down any time soon, and I am sure that we'll be seeing a plethora of new expansions and cards during 2015. To everyone who has put their time into helping out Bulbapedia's TCG section during the last year; your efforts are absolutely appreciated, and I hope to see everyone work toward just as much forward progress in the next year!

With all of that said, I want everyone to know that I greatly appreciate all of the assistance and devotion that has been given by the fandom in my first year as Bulbapedia's Editor-in-Chief. No matter how someone assists Bulbapedia, from the smallest tidbit of information to the largest new page and page overhaul, the help is appreciated not only by Bulbapedia's staff, but by every Pokémon fan that views this amazing encyclopedia. So once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who contributed to Bulbapedia in the last year, and let's make 2015 shine even brighter!

Kogoro
Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
