PokéWiki is a German language wiki that, like Bulbapedia, is a community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.


PokéWiki is, like the other members of Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis, an extension of a parent site, in this case, Filb.de. Since shortly after the initial development of Bulbapedia, various members of the FilbBoard proposed that there be a German-language version as well. Eventually, enough support came together to begin work on what would become PokéWiki itself in August of 2005.

Shortly after its inception, PokéWiki and Bulbapedia joined forces as the founding members of Encyclopaediae Pokémonis.

In August 2009, PokéWiki began a cooperation with a manga/anime and videogame magazine. This resulted in an extra page for PokéWiki in the magazine, bigger ads in the wiki and better covering of the server funds, which don't have to be completely paid by the admins anymore. In January 2014, the cooperation found its end and PokéWiki made a contract with a German advertising company.

On November 14, 2015 PokéWiki reached 20,000 articles, the second one of the Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis members to do so, the first being Bulbapedia.

Like Bulbapedia finds a sort of mascot in Bulbasaur, with its logo being that of Bulbasaur's bulb with a Poké Ball on it, PokéWiki finds its mascot in a green Pikachu aptly known as Greenchu.

Server seizure

In late August 2008, PokéWiki and its parent site, Filb.de, had their server seized. Upon this, PokéWiki put up a notice explaining the situation. This is an excerpt of the notice left up:

As you might know, not only Filb.de and PokéWiki are operated on our server. Due to the high cost of a "root server", we have been sharing the server with a few other people. Because of the actions of one of those people, the complete server was recently seized.
This has expressly nothing to do with Filb.de or PokéWiki! [...]

By September 6, 2008, PokéWiki was partially restored using an old backup, with registration and editing locked.

On May 15, 2009, PokéWiki was opened again to the public.


The current staff of the wiki, which has administrator access, consists of Buoysel, Matze, Mecanno-man, RobbiRobb and Taisuke. Buoysel and Matze are Bürokraten (Bureaucrats) as well. They are helped by the Redakteure (editors), a group with permissions to control changes and revert vandalism as well as delete pages, and Projektleiter (projectleader) that serves as the head of several projects. Verlässliche Benutzer (trusted users) is a group consisting of former, still active staff members, and rather new, promising users, able to edit semi-protected pages, Stimmberechtigte Benutzer (users entitled to vote), have the rights to edit templates, suppress redirects, and upload files by url.
