A protected page is an article on the Pokémon Encyclopedia that can not be edited by non-admin users. Usually, only pages of utmost importance are protected, as protecting a page generally goes against the ideas of a wiki (that every page should be editable by anyone). Sometimes, pages are also temporarily protected if they are being repeatedly vandalised.
You could also leave a request for protection or unprotection at Pokemon:Requests for page protection.
