Bulbasaur and Sunflora gardeningThe Bulbapedia encyclopedia is always growing here at Bulbagarden! All sorts of edits and contributions sprout up every single day thanks to Pokémon enthusiasts from all around the world! Let's take a closer look at our editors' best contributions that have taken root during February 2024.

Unraveling Detective Pikachu's Complete Case Files
Boblers is on the case! Our very own Detective Boblers has compiled everything there is to explore about the Detective Pikachu series, from the captivating games to the blockbuster movie and animated short. A Great Detective knows the importance of piecing together the whole picture, so dive in, gather clues, and uncover everything there is to know about the many thrilling mysteries solved by Detective Pikachu. Perhaps you'll be the one to crack the next big case in this super sleuthing series!

Does February like March?
No, but April May. Why the seasonal pun? Because in The Adventures of Snorlax & Cubone, the friendship between Cubone and Snorlax blossoms over the course of all four seasons! This series of shorts was produced by Polygon Pictures Inc. as part of Project Snorlax. A 5-minute compilation of all four shorts was released on the official Pokémon Japanese and English YouTube channels on December 29, 2023, and on the Indian YouTube channels on February 14, 2024. Check out the page for an excellent summary written by editor PikaTepig999, or for the spoilers-adverse, you can enjoy the short below!

Pokémon Poke-Tapa packet shot
Slap the Card!

If you've never slapped the card in Poke-Tapa, you're missing out! This game combined pattern recognition, manual dexterity and speed, as players had to locate and slap the correct Pokémon card to capture it! Sold exclusively in Brazil in 1999, this game came in two versions featuring either Generation I Pokémon or mostly Generation II Pokémon. Thanks to Mateussf, we've learned all about this novel way to capture Pokémon, and now you can too! Whoever slaps the most is the Poke-Tapa master!

Calling All Art Enthusiasts!
Introducing the Pokémon Black and White Game Art Folio! This Gift with Purchase was available at Target stores in the United States during the release of Pokémon Black and White (sold separately for $7.99). If you missed this special present from 2011, no need to worry! The magnificent minibug compiled and documented all there is to know about these postcards for all to enjoy.

Rayquaza and Entei dragon dances for a Lunar New Year celebration
Tell the World I'm Coming Home~

Have you watched the Homecoming animated short yet? If not, staff members abcboy and Ruixiang95 are here to help! Known as A Good Day for a Dream in China, it's a beautiful short created by the popular Chinese HMCH Anime Studio celebrating Rayquaza and the Chinese New Year. Why Rayquaza? Because it's the Year of the Dragon! But the animated short isn't the only celebration: locals in Yokohama, Japan could enjoy the special Dragon Dance in person! Check out this news clip below.

Our coverage is still missing the all-important plot summary, so if you're an animation enthusiast interested in an editing project, come on in! Here's the link to help get you started. See you soon!

A New Way to Play
Do you love the Pokémon Trading Card Game but are just tired of all the powerful Pokémon ex? You aren't alone. And that's why we have the Gym Leader Challenge format! This alternative way to play, created by long-time player Andrew Mahone, is a reference to how Gym Leaders in the Pokémon games often specialize in just one Pokémon type, that being one of GLC's rules. Even though it's a fan-created format, the Gym Leader Challenge format has been acknowledged in official Pokémon materials and events. It is included in the official Pokémon TCG Alternative Play Handbook, and has been featured as a side event in tournaments such as the 2022 World Championships and the 2023 Europe International Championships. Thanks to our resident TCG expert anzasquiddles, you too can enjoy this new way to play!
