Wikipedia:WikiProject Pokémon

Welcome to WikiProject Pokémon, formerly known as the Pokémon Collaborative Project. Wikipedians have formed this project to improve Wikipedia's encyclopedic coverage of all Pokémon related articles. If you would like to help, be bold and jump right in! You may also add yourself to the participants list.

If you'd like to bring an article to this project's attention, mention it on the talk page as appropriate.


The oldest ancestor of this project was WikiProject Pokédex (and its child project WikiProject PokéNav), which created articles for many Pokémon and Pokémon characters. This project fell into inactivity due to a loss of interest, and the many stubs they created became the subject of a great deal of criticism, especially given the creation of the guidelines for the handling of fictional subjects.

This criticism led to the creation of the Poképrosal, a proposal to merge all of these stubs into lists. While this proposal met with a consensus support, it stalled when it was proposed that it must be possible to expand these Pokémon stubs.

This effort to expand these stubs into articles led to the creation of the Pokémon Adoption Center, a project that assigned stubs to individual users to expand.

When the PAC project ran out of stubs to assign, this project was founded (under the name "Pokémon Collaborative Project"), to maintain and improve the newly expanded articles.

Of late, this project has reconsidered having individual articles for various Pokémon-related subjects, including places and things, human characters, and individual episodes of the anime, and the Pokémon species, due to their lack of notability and sourcing, as well as maintenance problems. The merging of the individual articles to lists is still in progress, due to the number of articles involved.
