How to merge hundreds of shapefiles into one gdb

Hi there


I am trying to merge a couple hundred shapefiles into one gdb, however, I only want to select shapefiles that contain "bpoly" in the name (as I will repeat for shapefiles that only contain other names with common expressions). When trying to do this manually, the merge tool has not been capable of running with up to 200 shapefiles. 


I have not used python script before but believe this will be the solution, if anyone has an idea of how to go about it that would be great.
