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

April 21 015

The day is finally here, Bulbapedia is open again at last! Over the past several weeks, Bulbapedia tech has been hard at work behind the scenes upgrading and bringing the wiki to modern standards and cutting back on a lot of the technical debt that has accumulated over the years. Because this was the first time in quite some time we performed work of this nature, this ended up being a much lengthier process than expected. There's been a whole host of bugs that have been addressed too. Below is a small list of some of the new features that you will now encounter as you browse through the site. Note that you may also need to reset your cookies for the site due to several changes in the back-end as well.

  • New features you may notice
    • Two factor authentication (2FA) for logging in has been enabled to keep your account secure.
    • Toolbars - The edit box now has an updated toolbar. To reenable the old version, you will have to go under "Gadgets" under "Preferences" and select the legacy bar.
    • An overall smoother site experience
    • Extension:Math - Yes, we can finally display equations properly!
    • Default edit rate enhanced - Those of you that like to watch BulbaBot do its work may notice that they start to move a little faster now, you will too if you can edit that fast!
    • Recent changes and Watchlist changes - These are now powered with JavaScript and introduce some lovely new features that improve their usability, including filters and even live updates.
    • Enhanced diff pages - Allows for some more action options when viewing page diffs.
    • Password issues - You will be notified and be suggested that your password be changed if it is in the list of 100,000 commonly used passwords that are considered bad passwords. Also, your username cannot be included in your password (e.g., if your username is "Spriteit" your password can not be "SpriteitsPassword").
    • Additional features that we will announce once more testing is complete.

If you notice any bugs (aka surprise features) please don't hesitate to let us know so we can fix it as soon as possible. That being said, we are aware that some users are experiencing log in issues following the update. If you are experiencing any log in issues/lockouts, please Direct Message @BulbaTech over on the Bulbagarden Discord with the following information:

  • Your Bulbapedia username
  • A link to your userpage (if you've had one created before)
  • Your email address

We are also aware that features involving email such as confirming your email address is also currently unavailable. Tech is working diligently to resolve these issues. Again, we apologize for the long maintenance period, and we thank you for your patience as we performed this much needed background work. We are extremely grateful for the hard work and many hours put in by our tech specialist, who often works thanklessly to ensure the Bulbapedia experience is as excellent as can be. We appreciate all you do!
