Back in the late '90s, a BigNameFan of the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' [[{{Fandom}} Community]] named Bulbasaur established a site he called '''Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden''', or '''[[http://www.bulbagarden.net/ Bulbagarden]]''' for short. In 2001, the site was shut down due to an inability to pay server costs. Another BigNameFan known as Archaic (real name Liam Pomfret) created a forum backup, and in 2003 relaunched Bulbagarden to the general public.

In 2005, Bulbagarden created the ever popular [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/ Bulbapedia]], a community driven Pokemon Encyclopedia on everything that is Pokemon. In 2008, [[BigNameFan Archaic]] was "sold" to [=HAVA=] Media, owners of Game Informer and Anime Shimbun (for which they wanted him), in exchange for the full payment of the Bulbagarden servers ''and'' the deal of leaving all its issues on the hands of its community. Since then, all ad revenue is spent on the community's Christmas contests, when real-life gifts (such as game cartridges and manga tomes) are given away to the winners. Lastly, in 2010, Bulbapedia was one of the original wikis to join the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance, as it was created in part by Archaic.
