About

Hello! My name is Matthew Verive. I run PidgiNet, home of PidgiWiki, one of the largest video game media sites on the Internet.

The concept behind PidgiWiki started in 2008 as Pokémon Resolution, a crude directory-listing style website that hosted several dozen pieces of official artwork from various Pokémon games. After other Pokémon fans wanted to contribute, I set up a wiki in early 2010 that was dubbed "PidgiWiki". Since then, PidgiWiki has expanded outside the Pokémon franchise to encompass all of video games, totaling over 23,000 pieces of official video game media, including artwork, logos, box images, and more.



If you've never visited PidgiWiki, check it out - there's a lot there. Looking for artwork from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? PidgiWiki has over 200 images, and still more in the backlog to upload.

Thanks to dozens of partners, ranging from game developers to journalists to fans and everywhere in-between, PidgiWiki is expanding more than ever. However, the site does take a whole lot of time, and server costs are increasing as the site becomes more popular. I want to continue making PidgiWiki the best resource for video game media, and I hope you want this to happen, too.

Any donations through Patreon will go directly towards the website, whether that be to help cover server costs, work to obtain additional sources, or purchase rare asset discs. A previous fundraiser through GoFundMe helped with obtaining three Nintendo asset discs, the contents of which were never before publicly available.
Goals
$28 of $50 per month
Press kits can be really, really expensive. At this milestone, I'd be able to set aside money to use for press kit purchasing, so that I could get artwork onto PidgiWiki that has previously never been available to the public. Additionally, one of our sources charges for assets (bummer, I know), so this would help to get credits for assets there.
