Hi, I'm abcboy and I'm the Head of Anime on Bulbapedia's Editorial Board as well as one of the Deputy Discord Administrators over on the Bulbagarden Discord. I first joined Bulbapedia all the way back in July 2008, and joined the staff as a Junior Admin in April 2015. I was later promoted to a full Admin in January 2016 and became a member of the Editorial Board in May 2018. I'm also a Bureaucrat on Bulbanews and help with some of Bulbagarden's social media presence such as BulbaNewsNOW and Bulbacast.

In terms of editing, my areas of focus include the spin-off games, the core games, as well as the anime. I also enjoy adding the names and etymologies of the characters and locations in other languages to pages as well. I also made the current Rapidash Trivia bot we use during the annual Christmas Contests, and am in charge of maintaining BulbaBot/WikiBot, Encyclopædiæ Pokémonis's resident interwiki bot.

The quickest way to contact me is to DM me on the Bulbagarden Discord server, especially if you want to have a longer, in-depth discussion. Feel free to still leave messages on my talk page as well, though. Besides Discord, if you otherwise need to contact me privately you can email me or message me on the forums.

Editing tips

  • Can't remember a Pokémon's Pokédex number? Just type {{subst:N2Num|<Pokémon's name>}} to substitute {{N2Num}}, a template that turns names to numbers. The opposite template, which turns numbers to names, is {{Num2N}}.
  • Trying to search for something in wikicode? Append insource: to your search to search the wikicode!
  • Secret CSS classes!

Countdown documentation

Countdowns have five important and necessary parts:

  • <div id="countdown" style="display: none"> [...] </div>: This is the countdown container. Other styles and classes can be applied. When the code activates, the countdown container is unhidden.
  • <div id="countdown-big"></div>: This displays the days and is kept inside the countdown container. Styles and classes can be applied. If the event takes place within 24 hours, this is empty. If the date at the time zone mentioned matches the date coded, this displays "Today". If the event has passed, this displays "Past" instead.
  • <div id="countdown-small"></div>: This displays the hours, minutes, and seconds and is kept inside the countdown container. Styles and classes can be applied.
  • <div id="countdown-target"></div>: This displays the date that is being counted down to and the timezone of the date. It is kept inside the countdown container. Styles and classes can be applied.
  • <countdown />: This sets the date and time zone to which it should count down. Parameters:
    • year: The year of the date to which it should count down to.
    • month: The month of the date to which it should count down to.
    • day: The day of the date to which it should count down to.
    • tz: The timezone it should count down in (e.g. EST, EDT, PST, JST). If a switch in daylight savings time status occurs during the countdown, it should be set to the status at the end of the countdown. Additional text may be added to this parameter.
    • tzoffset: The timezone offset it should count down in (e.g. -5, -4, +8). If a switch in daylight savings time status occurs during the countdown, it should be set to the status at the end of the countdown.

Only one countdown can be used per page as necessary functionality requires that each countdown has these IDs.

If the date to which it should count down requires the use of parser functions or other wikicode, the {{#tag:}} parser function should be used.

Internally, countdowns are operated throughout the parsing of the <countdown /> element by the MediaWiki software and the JavaScript contained in MediaWiki:Common.js

For example, the following countdown will count down to the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon in Japan, and if that has occurred, January 1 of next year in New York time:


<div id="countdown" class="roundy" style="font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', sans-serif; font-size: 150%; text-align: center; padding: 0.5em; display: none; background:#{{gold color}};">
<div id="countdown-big" style="line-height: 100%; font-size: 250%; color:#000;"></div>
<div id="countdown-small" style="line-height: 120%; color:#000;"></div>
<div id="countdown-target" style="font-size: smaller; line-height: 120%; color:#000;"></div>
{{#ifexpr: {{#time: U |+9 hours}} < 1479445200|<div style="font-size: smaller; line-height: 120%; color:#000;">release of [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]] in Japan!</div>}}
{{#ifexpr: {{#time: U |+9 hours}} < 1479445200
|{{#tag: countdown||year=2016|month=11|day=18|tz=JST (UTC +9) and the|tzoffset=+9}}
|{{#tag: countdown||year={{#expr: {{#time: Y |-29 hours}} + 1}}|month=1|day=1|tz=EST (UTC -5)|tzoffset=-5}}

I Will Be With You

Official Japanese translation from the movie credits:

さようなら 私は行きます
わかっています あなたは私のためにいるのではないと
前に向かって進んでね 私も強い心で生きていく=

さようなら 僕は行きます
わかっています この先も君を想い続けることは
けれど前に向かって進んで 僕も強い心で生きていく

君がどこへ行こうと 僕の心はそばに寄り添っている
だから 君は決してひとりじゃない

声もなく 泣いている
