Not to be confused with Pokémon Wiki.

Bulbapedia touts itself as "the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia". The wiki was established in 2005, as a feature of the Pokémon fansite Bulbagarden.

Bulbapedia covers all elements of the Pokémon franchise, including the games, anime, other merchandise and the fandoms.


Bulbapedia is a founding member of the Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis, a network of Pokémon wikis currently in nine different languages.

Bulbapedia is also a founding member of the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance (NIWA), a network of English language Nintendo wikis owned and operated by independent fan sites.

As part of the Bulbawiki network, Bulbapedia works closely with Bulbanews, a Pokémon news wiki, and the Bulbagarden Archives, the Bulbawiki image repository.


Bulbapedia is overseen by a large Staff; consisting of an Editorial board and a team of administrators. There are over 50,000 registered users, and more than 2000 active users. An exact wikiFactor for the site is impossible, with the one presented at the end of this page only an estimate. This is due to the long gap between when inbuilt wiki engine hit statistics stopped being collected by Bulbapedia, and when it started to use Google Analytics to track statistics in late 2009. Statistics from December 1, 2009 to December 1, 2010 alone would give a wikiFactor of 268. Given that the wiki has existed for many years previous to this, the exact value can safely be assumed to be significantly higher.
