    I got this as well, and I know other Google Chrome users that got it. I think it's just a bug with Chrome though. Someone that bragged about using Safari seems to not be affected, lol. Hopefully it goes away soon though. :( Serebii is still available though if you need information, as well as the Q&A threads on PC.

                I've been noticing this too so I've been steering clear... I looked it up on Google to see if there was an explanation for why this is happening... Didn't find much; but what I did find that this has happened in the past.

                  I use firefox got the same warning and a malware thing got caught in my virus blocker. So be careful using it for now. Problem is I didnt see anything to contact them. So beware

                    Yeah - I just saw that too, on Firefox.

                    'Sokay - I never use Bulbapedia anyway, since the site runs like molasses at the best of times, so it's no loss. Pokemondb has all the same information in a better format with better coding on better servers.

                    In my opinion, of course...

                      Yeah, I got this warning today too when I was looking up a Pokemon on there. I was like 'what happened'!? Bulbapedia is probably having a problem with their advertisements that they allow on their site, that could be causing it. This was a similar problem on a site that I go on sometimes, and the moderators and admins. fixed it.

                      The problem will probably fixed today or in the next few days so their is no need to worry.

                      Here' a Technical explanation: The first hosted network is TAKE2, which is the TNH (True Name Host) of bulbapedia.com. Google appears as the second "host" as the website, however the third, CONFLUENCE, could be using an intermediary hosted on Google's servers to redirect to their own website. All domain names referenced above have been registered within the past 10 days. This will most likely only be a problem to users if they have not modified their DNS settings using the instructions in this thread. Sadly, even if the user does this, they will still receive a warning if they attempt to browse to bulbapedia.

                      I think that's right.

                        Last time I saw a message like this was when a user where on PC had a image uploaded from an untrusted site, and google just generically listed it as malware, who knows, could be the same thing.

                          I had this problem as well and of all the years I had a computer and searched up Bulbapedia, I have seen nothing like this. I hope they get rid of whatever causing the site to be harmful.

                            I've been getting it as well. From both Internet explorer, google chrome, and my android browser....I love using bulbapedia's info although I have been steering clear(only visiting sporadically) because of it.

                              Safari was affected though! For me at least. ;P

                              This worries me too.
                              I was browsing through the supporter GIF thread, and got this warning on the second page.

                              Oh yikes, didn't know it was on other browsers. :( Well this puts us all in a pickle, right? Hopefully this gets fixed soon. I get all my old sprites from Bulbapedia!

                                It seems that just about all the broswers are saying the same thing...

                                I been on the Bulbapedia forums for over two year and I have never had this problem...

                                Could it be that something about New Years Eve might have a influence to this or the The Pokemon Company just had enough with them...Sad really....But I can still get on the web site the back way which is through my email but I really shouldn't take that chance...I guess ill give it a shot and monitor everything going on in the back ground of my computer to make sure things are going to be ok...

                                https://twitter.com/Bulbapedia Read some of the posts down on the Bulbapedia twitter feed.

                                EDIT: I got on the web site the back way which is by my email so you could try that if you want to get on there.
                                Double EDIT: I just found some more info why this happened: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/money/industries/technology/story/2011-10-31/corrupted-ads/51048084/1

                                Well if you're using Chrome, when that comes up, just click "Advanced" on the page and click proceed anyway.

                                  Yeah, I've been able to get around it easily, but I did some research and from what I understand, Bulbapedia is confused with another website on Google's list-thingie, so it blocks it. It should be fixed at some point, but yeah, it's pretty annoying. Bulbapedia is absolutely safe, don't worry.

                                    Bulbapedia Please be aware Google has updated their Safe Browsing diagnostic page for us again. Seems our ad network has not yet resolved its issues.

                                    Bulbapedia Based on the new information from Google, it appears we're suffering from the same rogue ad issue impacting other sites, including Twitpic.

                                    Bulbapedia Google has updated its listing on Bulbapedia, and we are investigating. It appears these are the result of rogue ads. google.com/safebrowsing/d…

                                    Bulbapedia We have requested a review by Google of their malware alert message. After our own review, we believe it's the result of a malicious report.

                                    I had this problem on Chrome, then I switched to Mozilla to see if it was a browser problem and it actually worked on Mozilla and it didn't detect any virus at all. So lucky me, eh?

                                      I get it on Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. It pops up on my Iphone's Safari too.

                                      I got this too, and I'm a Google Chrome user.

                                      It sucks since I get most information from over there.
