Archives administrators are users who have been granted administrative powers by the editorial board. They have more editing functions at their disposal than regular users, and are responsible for watching over the Bulbagarden Archives and settling any disputes. Many of them are also administrators on Bulbapedia.

See: List of administrators
  • Members of Bulbapedia's editorial board are listed in green.

Becoming an administrator

Administrative powers can be granted by a bureaucrat, however, the editorial board has the final say on the issue.

Users who have contributed regularly and who have demonstrated initiative are candidates for administratorship.
