Bulbapedia is a community-driven English-language encyclopedia and NIWA about the Pokémon series. Founded in 2004, and opened to the public in 2005, Bulbapedia is a sector of Bulbagarden, a Pokémon fan community.

History

Bulbapedia began as an idea for a Pokémon wiki, in the style of Wikipedia, to be set up by the Pokémon community. Eventually, Bulbagarden took the initiative, with Zhen Lin establishing the wiki in private on December 21, 2004 and Bulbagarden second-in-command evkl assuming authority as its first Editor-in-Chief. The wiki later launched to the public on February 14, 2005. Under evkl, the wiki grew from Bulbagarden's pet project to a large database of information, and he handed off control of the wiki to Zhen Lin in early 2006.

In April 2006, Bulbapedia and the German PokéWiki would come together to create Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis, a multilingual network of Pokémon Wikis. The project currently includes seven member Wikis of various languages, being: Bulbapedia (English), PokéWiki (German), Pokémon Wiki (Japanese), Wikinezka (Polish), Poképédia (French), Pokémon Central (Italian), and 52Poké Wiki (Chinese).

At one point, the administrator of Zelda Wiki contacted Archaic, the webmaster of Bulbapedia, about a possible affiliation. From these talks, it was decided that, rather than a simple affiliation, that the two would start a network of Nintendo wikis (originally called "Independent Nintendo Wikis"), expanding upon the concept of the Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis project. Zelda Wiki would later convince Super Mario Wiki to join, and on February 14, 2010 (the fifth anniversary of the public launch of Bulbapedia), the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance was launched.
