He's working with Joypad Records and the Pokemon Company to release it as a video game cover album. His main website is Pokémon Reorchestrated and to sample some of the songs he's done so far, his YouTube account is Pokémon Reorchestrated - YouTube.
    This is a given once the Kanto Symphony album is released. I'm one of the staffers that have been following this project and since it fits with the Music project, we see no reason to not include it.

    Grr. Episodes take too long to summarize. And what the heck, how does one summarize an episode? "Character 1 and Character 2 decide to battle. Character 2 wins." ?! Is that how we should do it? Generally I try to tell everything important that happens play-by-play and leave out unnecessary little events.

    How long does a Synopsis have to be to not be too small of an overview, and how short should it be so that it doesn't take me so many hours to write one?
    If you're not too sure about how a synopsis should be written like, you can always check other examples (for example BW056), it should be written in third person, ideally in present continuous tense (or past, depending on the situation). As for the length of the synopsis, it depends on how much content the episode in contrast to the Bulbapedia article. It's up to the user to try and write it all down as faithful to the events as possible.

    You picked a horrible time for a server move! Black and White 2 are out in the US tomorrow! That'll create a ton of translation updates (Mei and Kyouhei's English names, for starters). Well, when editing is possible again, Opelucid Gym's page needs details adding relating to BW101, which judging by the episode title (Soryu Gym! Iris VS Shaga!!) is Iris vs Drayden at that gym.

    ^ Spoilers, bro. Some of us like surprises.

    Tell me about it. It's been a full week. I've written two whole BW episode synopses since then.

    The server's definitely gonna be tested as soon as editing is unlocked, though we'll probably have that pleasant little 1 edit/day reminder again.

    Sorry, but that spoiler is on the Bulbapedia FRONT PAGE. It's nigh impossible to avoid.

    Sorry it's taking so long guys. The servers are still throwing up errors all over the place (remember the session data loss errors? All the time.). I should also note that the wiki would likely have been locked down for a few days now for the B2W2 release, so that we can coordinate the move. I know it's annoying, but we'd rather get it working properly before we unlock it, rather than unlock it before it's ready and deal with masses of bugs.

    In the Character of the day page, Case's image link is broken where the actual file name has the word, anime, in it instead of Case by itself.

    That's how it appears on the main page. There is nothing impossible about avoiding the title.

    The episode title is mentioned on the Twitter feed. It is unavoidable. Anyway, the unnamed twins on the Unova Route 20 page are called Lia and Lily. Please update it.

    You said Bulbapedia front page. This is a thread about Bulbapedia suggestions and errors. Therefore. Bulbanews and Twitter are doubly irrelevant.
    Whatever, let's move on and agree that this server move is the bollocks. And I'm not even English.

    Noting here that Zhen Lin has found and fixed the issue, so the wiki has been unlocked. Since this is the first time the new servers has been unlocked, there potentially could be some bugs or lag until the load is properly balanced. If there's anything major (i.e. not just slight lag) then please report it in the site issues thread.

    Thank you for your patience during this past week.

    For some reason, it seems that a lot of images on the wiki aren't working. Problem related to the recent server move?

    I still can't confirm my email, not even with other email accounts.

    Let me repeat: I have the synopses of BW080 and BW081 already written in full. Do not do them.
