PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Is there a raw database download option?

Is there a copy of the database available as a mySQL, CSV, Access DB, or other database format?

I want to do some data mining and would prefer not to abuse the site and scrape the pages.

Thanks,

No, we don't have anything like that here. But don't go site-scraping or you'll end up getting banned from accessing the site at all.

You might like to try veekun.com, they publish their database (which I've used for a few sections here).

I need to look at the veekun database itself, but I suspect it will be pretty good.  Thank you for your help!

Thanks again,
