Bulbanews is a primary- and secondary-source Pokémon news organization run by Bulbagarden as a means of publishing news quickly and effectively. Based on the concept of a wiki, any of its registered users may submit a news article, which will be subject to approval by administrators before publication. The current Editor-in-Chief is Argy.

Like the Bulbagarden's collaborative encyclopedia, Bulbapedia, Bulbanews is named after the Pokémon Bulbasaur, and the fact that it is a news site. It utilizes images from the Bulbagarden Archives, just as Bulbapedia does.

History

Bulbanews was launched in April 2005 as a comprehensive news service, about 2 months after Bulbapedia was opened to the public, but did not get the same attention Bulbapedia did.

Bulbanews was subsequently relaunched as your community Pokémon newspaper on February 27, 2006, the tenth anniversary of the Japanese release of Pokémon Red and Green Versions - in addition to reporting news regarding the Pokémon canon, it would also publish columns and editorials, as well as news from the Pokémon community.
