It's the worst NIWA wiki by far, and it's ran like a fucking Fandom wiki instead of a proper MediaWiki wiki.
And don't even get me started on how they still can't get a handle on their server issues.
>>
>>50785600
I would prefer if the admin wasn't a known pedo
>>
>>50785600
Information-wise it's the best, but the formatting sucks.

I try to avoid using it when I actually need information because there's just way too many sections to sift through.
>>
>>50785600
No, I stopped using it when they started shilling their unfunny podcasts and shit years ago.
>>
it was intermittently offline for weeks up until recently, fuck you mean "best pokémon site"
>>
>>50786112
This is exactly why I use other sites like veekun and serebii. I look a lot of information for older gens and it's better organized on those sites. I still go to bulbapedo for detailed writing on moves and mechanics.
>>
It's really bad for getting good info, like what certain moves really does and not the game text. Also, despite for being a wiki it doesn't have raw data meaning that it can't be used as a source of Pokemon data for processing by a program.
>>
>>50785600
Bulbapedia for anime information, Serebii for game data.
>>
>>50786101
it's a 4chan meme, so stop talking about it?

>It's the worst NIWA wiki by far
That would be the Zelda wiki, which betrayed its brethren and migrated to Gamepedia, which would be bought by Wikia/Fandom. Honestly, it should be removed from NIWA and replaced with a different, genuinely independent Zelda wiki.

Besides pic related, liam's kiwi farms thread has the rest of the screenshots. "Mozz's Van" was a hidden porn forum with allegations of grooming the underaged mods into posting nudes. But even if that isn't true, just the fact that they used van in the title when there's a creeper stigma attached to it, even more so from back then is pretty telling. Judging from the leaked screenshots talking about it, the only reason they changed anything was because they didn't wanna get in trouble.

It's honestly highly suspicious. We'll never be able to say for sure what went on for obvious reasons, but with things like "Bulbapedia Confessions" and liam saying "that age limits for sex are stupid because Japan doesn't have them", "age is only a number" and so on doesn't help their case. But you can tell that the corporate network HAVA media, who owns the site, wants all of this bad history associated with it deleted from the net. Judging off of worth of web, bulba makes 8 and a half million every year for them which is easy money since it's built on free autism of a community of wiki slaves.

>>50786074
I still don't understand why bulbapedia is still part of NIWA when it's just as corporate as Fandom wiki now. Nothing independent about it. But then again, there really isn't another one besides those two.

Less ads
I do use adblock but I feel sad for those who don't
I don't want to watch some low effort top 10 or lets play, mister bulbapedo
>>
>>50786062
What? I've had ad blockers for ages and never have a problem with bulbapedia working.
>>
>>50785600
Wow, kinda surprised by the responses so far. I've gone on and off pokemon over the years, but I've found that Bulbapedia is pretty much superior to every other site (cept for Azuriiland's IV calculator, which is now dead). It plays like wikipedia, where if there's a word or name u want to click on, you can. Literally all the information you need about a topic is on there, or if not there prob wouldn't be found anywhere else.

If you want to find a Scizor, go to it's main page. You see that you have to evolve Scyther, so you click on the word to go to Scyther's page. You see that it's found on route ___. You click on the route, it tells u the frequency. Perhaps you want to see it's type advantages/disadvantages. The layout is much easier to look at than Serebii. In fact, the entire outline of the site is insanely easy to parse through and look at and read.

As for ads, how tf do yall not have ad block? Even when I didn't, i never noticed the ads, hell im surprised yall mentioned this - i wouldve never thought of this as a con for Bulbapedia.
Bulbapedia is my go to for everything while playing the game.
>>
Furthermore, the images are waaay better. You can find all the items on routes, you can find if they need a hm to get there, you find all the trainers to fights, the maps to navigate the site, etc.
>>
>>50785600
I like using their walkthroughs

At least isn’t stuck in still looking like it’s from 1999

/vp/ users would rather use a pedos site than the site of someone that doesnt hate swsh

Bulbapedia
>has so much information it's almost excessive
>good for creatives (writers, artists, etc) because of things like quotes pages and trivia sections (for as unironically autistic as the trivia can be sometimes it's still good most of the time)
>layout kind of sucks and sometimes pages/articles for certain things flat out do not exist, leading you to need to use other websites like Serebii or pokemondb
>seems to have problems with not having enough images, most other wikis tend to have gallery sections full of things but this is often not the case for Bulbapedia
>the staff is... questionable

Serebii
>has documentation on almost any piece of Pokemon media there is but a lot of the times if it happens to be really obscure and/or Japan only it's about a paragraph worth of information and little else. very much quantity vs quality
>focuses more on info about the games and not really the worldbuilding of the series, i.e. no quotes page so it's a bit shitty for creatives to use for information
>rife with errors, typos, etc. and the layout is inconvenient and cluttered so it takes about 5 minutes for you to get to where you need to be if you don't get lost searching for what you need
>Joe is dedicated to a ridiculous degree but can be pretty insufferable, not sure if autism or stress of being so dedicated to Serebii or just both

If it wasn't obvious my personal priorities lie less in gameplay mechanics and more in researching lore and worldbuilding for autistic--sorry, artistic reasons. I end up using Dogasu's Backpack for really obscure overseas stuff even if the webmaster isn't always on top of translating things, which is fair, pretty sure he has a life to live and all that and not everyone can be Joe Merrick levels of dedicated. I also use Pidgiwiki a lot for HD official art needs. Bulbapedia is... good, okay at worst.
>>
>>50785600
I prefer serebii because pokemon pages are not cluttered with useless shit like biology and anime data
>>
>>50788058
>>50788070
so where's the proof?
>>
retards saying Bulba has too much information
1 are browsing on their phone
2 don't know you can click on the index instead of scrolling manually
3 can't use / don't know how to use ctrl+f
>>
>>50789474
It's incredible that there are retards out there complaining about too much information on a fucking wikipedia page. Wonder how many of them are underaged
>>
>>50785600
Bulba, Pokepedia and Serebii together are good, but pokepedia got a lot of dust and lost It's peak after new gens rolled in, Bulba has something I don't like but I can't remember what, maybe the cookies needing 3 hours to be opt out manually, serebii being archaic makes It better for me, some pages miss text though, overall I like them all, if they had all the infos It would be better

Both posts show proof of the existence of the founder being a pedo (along with him linking to some of his porn fanfics of Ash and Misty) and mozz's van, or is it too complicated to click on some images, retard-kun?

Go visit liam pomfret's thread on kiwi farms for further info that goes more into this, including his wife who was also a mod on bulba spying on 10 year olds at an elementary school to see if they really have what it takes to "become Pokemon Masters". It's one thing to like the site, but it's another to be an apologists to an actual pedo. You're the kind of dumb fuck that will still pretend it's a "meme" and argue in bad faith regardless of any evidence. This shit has been known for years, so I'm done spoon-feeding you.
>>
bro how many minor corrections do you feel you need to make, c'mon now
>>
>>50785600
Too many server errors
Anime and TCG information put before game information in pokémon pages

Fix that and it's great
>>
>>50789942
Have they given any reason as to why they don't prioritize game data?
>>
>>50789959
none, just retarded I guess
>>
>>50789959
And it's weird because it's ONLY for the pokémon

For characters (except anime-originals of course), locations, items, moves, etc., the game information always comes first, but for the pokémon it's the anime (and TCG section that literally just serves to link to another page)
>>
lots of useless pages for odd things and formatting for mon pages could be better
maybe like tabs or something for anime info and just present game info first
or like how some wikis have different tabs for different parts of a characters page
i just hate scrolling for ages and i'm sure loading wise it isn't much better
also sometimes the name and design speculation is wrong, there are some cultural differences that don't seem to make it over to western viewers and they don't really present them
it's best to just leave that information out if they can't get it right
>>50788984
didn't know about those two other sites, thanks

>>50789884
What """"evidence"""?

>>50785609
This, bulbapedia is a good site but it's so goddamn fucky, it makes it kinda irritatingly unreliable
>>
>>50789474
>>50789512
No one said that. People are saying it's impractical to search or go through those sections when all they want is a move. Not all of us are faggots that care about where Ash first saw a pokemon.

>scrolling for ages on the table of contents
How small is your screen? That's one of the lengthier ToC's and I pretty much got everything of importance in one screen.
>>
>>50790116
wtf, why scroll? just click on the fucking link.

>>50789474
Lol fucking this. Hell, on the phone, everything is collapsed, so it's even fucking easier than on the comp.

I feel that people who complains about the quantity of information did probably shit on school projects where they had to google stuff or find info, even tho it's insanely easy

Exactly, that's why I quoted that line. These underaged newfags seriously don't know how a ToC works
>>
>>50790776
wanting a more condensed page isn't a trait of being a newfag you just have terminal autism
>>
>>50790791
>more condensed page
That's a cute way of wording "delete half the page so I can scroll faster". I'd be interested to see how you explain how that would work.

I know it's a wiki but the visual layout could be improved particularly with the lists, I prefer using the Database when looking through stuff like dexes and types especially since I think the way they order the Pokemon for the latter is better than the mono-primary-secondary ordering that Bulbapedia has

I like a lot of flavor they have for every article.

But i usually use pokemondb.net + marriland.com for most things. Also veekun.com was amazing, but still not updated for gen 8 which is a shame.

>Do you agree or is there anything you would change about the site or prefer?
I mean, I don't know about BEST, but for me it gets the job done. Then again, I'm not a gamer, so I mostly just go on there for lore and general knowledge autism. Overall, I'd say it depends on what you want out of it.
