Indigo Plateau

The Indigo Plateau serves as the capital for the Pokémon League. It is the final destination for Pokémon Trainers competing in Indigo or Johto League competitions against the Elite Four. This is the where the powerful Elite Four battle against Trainers in a final showdown of becoming a master Pokémon trainer, who may be challenged after defeating of all eight Gym Leaders of each respective region. In the anime, it is also the location of the Indigo Plateau Conference, Kanto Grand Festival and the Pokémon League Village.

The Indigo Plateau is located just north of Victory Road, and east of Mt. Silver. In Generation I and III, the only way to reach the Indigo Plateau is by going through Route 23; however, in Generation II and IV, the Indigo Plateau can be reached by going through Route 26. In order to reach Indigo Plateau by foot, Trainers must venture through Victory Road, a lengthy cave acting as a final test for Trainers.

Message from the Editor

February 17 196

Once again, another year has concluded for Bulbapedia. It's certainly been a very busy one, with Pokémon's 20th Anniversary and the summer of Pokémon GO both behind us. It was an amazing 12th year for this project.

In 2016, Bulbapedia grew by over 2800 articles, and we hope to see significant growth as well in 2017. The Video Games section showed some of the most impressive growth in 2016. With the release of Pokémon GO, followed by Pokémon Sun and Moon ushering in the beginning of Generation VII, this section not only met the expectations we had for it at the beginning of the year, they blew past it immeasurably. We hope that the recent introduction of Johto Pokémon in Pokémon GO will only be the tip of the iceberg for the Video Games section in 2017!

The Anime, Manga, and TCG sections have also shown wonderful growth through 2016, and await even more growth in these three sections in 2017. The 20th season of the English dub of the Pokémon anime will be making its official premiere this year, and we can expect to see a lot of new manga and TCG content as well.

Bulbapedia is here today, because of all the contributors who have helped out by making edits through these 12 years. I mention this every year, because it's the absolute truth of a project like this. Without the members of the fandom who contribute to this project, no matter how big or small their contributions may be, Bulbapedia wouldn't be what it is today and very well may not even exist at all.

I'd also like to go onto a personal note for a moment, as today marks the conclusion of my third year as Bulbapedia's Editor-in-Chief. It's been an amazing experience, and would just like to thank everyone reading this for making these last three years something I'll never forget. I hope we can keep this going even longer.

With that all said, let's make another awesome year, let's keep Bulbapedia the best resource for Pokémon information on the internet. 2017 is another year for us to make our own, let's do this!

Kogoro
Editor-in-Chief, Bulbapedia
