Monthly Newsletter
January 2018


  • Happy New Year! - From NIWA members to all our readers, editors, and fans, we'd like to wish you the best in 2018!
  • StrategyWiki App - StrategyWiki has released an official Android app on the Google Play Store! Check it out here.

  • Bulbagarden Holiday Event - Bulbagarden's ninth annual Holiday Event has concluded with the final bonus round of Rapidash Trivia, where players competed for the first place prize of a 3DS Pokémon game in each of the nine rounds. In the 12 Days of Christmas Trivia, entrants scoured Bulbapedia for the answers to twelve challenging questions for the grand prize: a Nintendo Switch. Last but not least, prospective writers and artists displayed their creativity in our Writing and Creative Contests. Thanks to all who participated, and for those who couldn't or didn't, we hope to see you this December!
