Welcome to the Bulbapedia Editor's Hub!
a jump-off point for contributors new and old

Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia about Pokémon to which anyone can contribute. Since its launch in February 2005, it has grown to include 52,539 articles on a range of Pokémon-related topics.

This hub page is designed to help editors find something to work on. It covers a range of ways you can share your Pokémon knowledge with the world including creating wanted pages, expanding stub articles, and cleaning up poorly written pages. It also lists specific short-term tasks that need to be finished. Some of the work might be tedious, but a little goes a long way in building an encyclopedia.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the talk page. Alternatively, you could ask a specific staff member. They're happy to help you out.

...And we're back!

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude for everyone's patience while we completed some much needed back-end work on the encyclopedia. We have an exciting update to share on this topic, but first:

Happy 19th Anniversary!

Today marks the 19th anniversary of Bulbapedia's public debut. Over the past 12 months, Bulbapedia has accomplished many remarkable milestones, including our outstanding accomplishment in June of 50,000 articles. Here's to 50,000 more! Late last year our Bulbapedia X née Twitter account reached over 100,000 followers, gaining 10,000 more since! We also saw the expansion of the Bulbapedia project channels in the Bulbagarden Discord in May, and the start of our monthly What's GROWING on? newsletter in April. These newsletters are just a small celebration of the contributors making our community the best, so if you haven't had the chance to check them out, please feel free to start with our Anniversary Edition!

Now, coming out of our wiki maintenance, you may notice an exciting new feature while editing: VisualEditor. VisualEditor, as the name suggests, is a "visual" way of editing. Editing has historically required people to learn wiki markup, a fairly complex markup language, even to make tiny changes to a page. VisualEditor allows people with no experience editing wikis to contribute their knowledge in an easy intuitive way. We will be drafting our own guide on how to use it, but in the meantime, please use Wikipedia's handy user manual. We know that editing a wiki can seem intimidating at times, so we hope this new feature will make the editing experience more user friendly! (And for our long-time editors, don't worry—it's optional!) If you have any issues, please contact a member of Staff. We will have more detailed notes on the MediaWiki update at a later date.

As we await the impending Pokémon Day announcements, you are all invited to listen to Bulbagarden's Pokémon Day Predictions Bulbacast, available on our Twitch channel on February 24th at 12:00AM (UTC). See you then!

Happy 19 years, happy Pokémon 28th, and happy editing!

Maverick Nate
Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
