The free-to-use Pokémon RESTful API (Pokéapi) is linked to an extensive database of Pokémon-related information- a true virtual Pokédex. Simple GET HTTP requests can be sent to the API to access 54,363 objects sourced from Pokémon video games covering Pokémon characters, abilities, moves, attack, life and defensive statistics, and more. This is a read-only API, and no authentication is required for it's use. So far to date the API has serviced over 13,000,000 requests. The Pokéapi is independently supported by Paul Hallett, a Python & Go API developer and avid GitHub contributor. In addition, 5 language specific libraries have been made to interface with the API for Python, .NET, Racket, Java & Ruby.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
