Hi, I'm abcboy and I'm the active Head of Games on Bulbapedia's Editorial Board as well as one of the Deputy Discord Administrators over on the Bulbagarden Discord. 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 on Bulbapedia, 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 here on the forums.
