This source uses the fully open PokéAPI to serve and retrieve information about Pokémon. This connector should be primarily used for educational purposes or for getting a trial source up and running without needing any dependencies. As this API is fully open and is not rate-limited, no authentication or rate-limiting is performed, so you can use this connector right out of the box without any further configuration.

Output Schema

Currently, only one output stream is available from this source, which is the Pokémon output stream. This schema is defined here.

Rate Limiting & Performance Considerations (Airbyte Open-Source)

According to the API's fair use policy, please make sure to cache resources retrieved from the PokéAPI wherever possible. That said, the PokéAPI does not perform rate limiting.

Data Type Mapping

The PokéAPI uses the same JSONSchema types that Airbyte uses internally (string, date-time, object, array, boolean, integer, and number), so no type conversions happen as part of this source.
