    Default Bulbapedia App

    Why don't you guys make an app to make people's lives easier? You can allow easier access to everyone! It would be a great thing to do! Hope you can do it!

    The Bulbagarden Network doesn't own Pokémon. Therefore, they can't make an app of Bulbapedia without permission from the copyright holders.

    Pretty sure since the web site is up, they can make an app...plus it would be free so they wouldn't make any profit.

    You need licenses from the app provider, like Apple or Google. Bulbapedia still uses ads, which make profit. So you would need special licenses from the Pokémon Company.

    I do think we can't do this because of copyright reasons,like Ferrothorn64 said.
    @Archaic; can provide more information on this.

    What I mean is that since the pokemon company doesn't seem to have an issue with the actual website, I fail to see why an app would be denied. What I meant is that Bulbapedia isn't in competition with pokemon so there shouldn't be in issue with profit.

    Pokémon now has an official Pokédex app. You have to pay for anything outside of the Unova dex, so having an even better source such as Bulbapedia available for free in app form would hurt their sales.

    See Legal Issues? There's an app for that - Bulbanews

    It's a little out of date, but it's still a good primer for why this won't happen.
