Pikipedia, which focuses on the Pikmin series of games, and Pikcanon-NOT, which focuses on the fanon of the Pikmin series, have both joined the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance to become the eighth member of it. Both wikis were once a branch of Wikia, but gained independence at the same domain with the help of Super Mario Wiki head Porplemontage. Pikipedia was founded in the beginning of December, 2005 and Pikcanon-NOT was founded in November, 2008.

NIWA, short for Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance, is a group of Nintendo-based wikis that vow to stay free from wiki farms such as Wikia. It started with Bulbapedia, Zelda Wiki, and Super Mario Wiki, and grew later to become six wikis. The second of three wikis to join NIWA in October, Pikipedia and Pikcanon-NOT were preceded by Lylat Wiki, which joined last week. Next week, another wiki is set to join.
