On Wikipedia, anyone can get a torrent of their entire mediawiki article database (Wikipedia:Database download - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
I think this would be a great idea with Bulbapedia also, for several reasons:
- If you use torrents, there will not be any extra load on the servers.
- The database would mean that a user could lookup things on Bulbapedia without an Internet connection, by setting up a wiki on his own computer using the Bulbapedia database.
- By doing so, there would be less load on the actual Bulbagarden servers.
I'd just like to throw that out there, and add this option is a lot better than crawling Bulbapedia onto a hard drive for many reasons.
