I would love it if I could pick between smaller groups. Starting out with ~20 at once during the early phases in kinda overwhelming. I kinda want to force myself to pick only 1 out of 5 (or 6 for the sake of being Pokemon) during the early phases if possible and would love it if it was a builtin option to show smaller groups.
If it is too much tromble then don't worry about it. I'm a huge fan of it as it is, just kinda hard to stay focus when I have to decide between ~20 Pokemon for a good while without making a mistake.
Megan: More styles are kind of low-priority for me, since with the little time I have to work on the site, I'd generally rather be making content than yet another style. But maybe someday.
Thank you muchly

I have a question.
Have you thought about making a new theme for your styleswitcher? I'd love to see a new theme.
I'm not using private browsing, I'm using firefox 35.0.1, and I definitely don't have localStorage wiped out when I close the browser. I haven't paid too much attention to when it disappears, so I'll try and take notes if I notice it happening again.
Downloading a save file would be cool! Saving would also make it easier to use the picker to do favourites from a certain region, or favourite Water-type, or whatever without losing your progress.
Well, for me "released" means that players can use it, unlike "announced" or "revealed".
Are you using private browsing, by any chance? That would throw out your localStorage data when you exit. Other than that, I can only think of 1) you're using a really old version of Firefox, or 2) you've one way or another specifically set it to delete your localStorage (perhaps you've set it to automatically clear all cookies/history on exit?).
Unfortunately just your favorites list is insufficient to recover your state - the picker also has to keep track of which Pokémon have been eliminated by which Pokémon. I suppose I could add the ability to manually download your picker state as a file and upload it again?
Is it possible to make the shared version of the favorite Pokemon list into some kind of save file? My save always seems to disappear, and I can only get through so many Pokemon in one day.
(This time I actually lost my save somehow accidentally clicking the forms checkbox and the yes button when my cursor moved weirdly, but besides that it seems to disappear whenever I close Firefox.)
TKuja: Pokémon you pick don't go on your favorites list immediately. Picking some Pokémon means you're eliminating the rest (for now), and when you've eliminated every Pokémon but one, that's when the remaining Pokémon is put on your favorites list (because it has to be your number one favorite). You can continue to find your second, third, etc. favorites by the same process, and they'll get put onto the list then, in the correct order.
I was looking at some referrals the other day and saw other people confused in a similar way, though, so I'm changing the description to make it more obvious that that's how it works.
Konrad Borowski: Hoopa was officially revealed on pokemon.com on January 13th. I just didn't update the site between then and this update.
Wait, Hoopa is now released? I thought it was revealed a while ago.
Clicking a pokemon and then pressing pick doesn't put them on tthe favourites list
i'm not sure if i'm doing it wrong
i just wanted to sign to guestbook. for the sake of signing a guestbook. it is one of the only guestbooks left, in all of existence. thank-you for keeping it around.

This is still one of the best Pokemon-related websites I've seen to this day. It's so weird to come back to it after so many years, but it warms my heart.
Keep up the wonderful work!
I feel it sort of goes against the spirit of the Zodiac to give every Pokémon multiple days. The Day of Pikachu is supposed to be one particular day, not one of two (or three). For Gen II I could get away with having a day for the normal and shiny version of the Pokémon, I guess, but Gen I didn't even have shinies. It would've been an awkward fit
Every generation but the first two has had a Zodiac, yes, but that's incidental. The Zodiacs aren't made for the generation; it's just supposed to contain every Pokémon, and because more Pokémon get added every generation, it works out to having to make a new one each generation. I consider the older Zodiacs obsolete and out of date - they're only even still linked on the Zodiac page as a bit of historical trivia.
As a better solution that just flat out giving some Pokemon a third day, I worked it out and, by giving each individual Pokemon two days, and giving each evolutionary family a day, you end up with a preliminary Zodiac of 373 days (this excludes legendaries from the list of families, and counts Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan as one family).
By combining a few 'related' families - such as the fossil Pokemon, for example - you could easily get 373 down to 366.
If you wanted to do it, you'd have to give multiple days to each Pokemon.
For Gen 1, each individual Pokemon could have two days, leaving an additional 64 days to fill by giving certain Pokemon a third day.
But, it's not important, I was more just curious - every generation has had a Zodiac, except the first two (because the original inspiration only worked in Gen III).
How would that work? There aren't enough Pokémon for every day of the year.
Have you ever considered retroactively creating Zodiacs for generations 1 and 2?
