Gamma-ray observations with the \textit{Fermi} Large Area Telescope (LAT) have revealed significant pulsations from more than 200 young and recycled, millisecond pulsars. These observations have demonstrated that pulsars are by far the largest source class in the Galactic plane at GeV energies, and more gamma-ray pulsars are still being revealed by the LAT. In these proceedings I give an overview of the main results from \textit{Fermi} LAT pulsar observations. I also discuss some of the implications of these results in terms of population statistics and high-energy pulsar emission properties.
