Anybody with Admin below their name is definitely me or a trusted person. I myself will always sign as Butterfree. If somebody signs under that name but does not have the Admin label, it is most likely an impostor.
Sagiri: Maybe. Places to Train came about because I had the location data and it made it easy and practical to compare average experience/EVs across locations; if I manage to load Gen VII encounter data into the database, Places to Train would be reasonably easy to do from there.
Do you have plans to continue your Places To Train series for the newer games?
Happy belated birthday to my number one favorite Pokémon site! :D I hope this site stays around for many, many, many years to come. It's so amazing to me that this site, an important part of my childhood, is still up and running (while sadly most of the other Pokémon sites I visited back then are long gone now). I first visited this site around 13 years ago and I've adored it ever since. I love the new Celebi style too!
Thanks for all the well-wishes, everyone!
In response to Henry's request for a Mega Evolution-only mode for the Favorite Pokémon Picker: Unfortunately, I think that's a bit too specific - I can't keep adding more options for any conceivable subset of Pokémon people could theoretically want to pick between, or I'd never stop. However, it's not too hard to emulate that - simply set the picker to forms mode, major only, final evolutions only, and uncheck every generation except VI, then simply don't pick any of the non-megas. Pretty quickly you'll have eliminated all of them, and while they'll pop back up as the megas go into your Found Favorites, you can simply continue to ignore them until you've ordered every mega.
I've been thinking about Celebi and its movie a lot. Dead Celebi was lit. There should be a Celebi dead form that is Grass/Ghost and looks like the dead celebi in the movie. tat wuld b a lit.
Congrats on reaching the milestone! 15 years is a long time. Celebi style is one of my favorite style and I'm glad to see a remade version of it!
Thank you for creating and maintaining this website. I admire your dedication and love on this website and Pokemon. I discovered this website in 2009 and it brings back the memories reading your pages. Thanks for sticking around. People and interests come and go, but I will never forget this website as part of my childhood.

Wow, congratulations on the 15 (!) years.
Website: Odie's Ocean
Happy (late) birthday, TCoD! Since my birthday is also in November, (the 8th), I'm soon also going to be fifteen years old! Here's to many more years!
This website is now as old as I was when I discovered it. And that was more than 10 years ago. I feel so old. Here's to many more.

I think I might be late, but happy birthday TCoD! Fifteen years sounds pretty impressive, although I don't know how old websites usually get. Also, I'm glad that you remade the Celebi style because the old one never worked properly for me, which was sad since it's my favorite style.

Congratulations! It's must feel amazing to have this life-long project to interact with. You should feel proud! Even more so that it's part of many peoples' childhoods to some degree, not just yours.
(And c'mon, crotchety old woman or no, tell me you're not the slightest bit excited to casually stalk the profiles of the people who like your website!)
aaaaaaa you remade the best style!!!
Happy fifteenth birthday TCoD! Here's to many more great years!
Happy birthday, TCoD! Fifteen years, man. That's kind of terrifying! D: But it's been a blast to see you and the site grow and change over most of those years, and the site's tools and content are always much appreciated. To another good year and many more!
Amazed this website is still up. Kudos!
Sorry I meant in the Pokemon Picker if you can add a Mega only button
Hello Butterfree, is there any chance that you can add something that only shows Mega Evolutions? That will be so great if you could.
I´ve been looking everywhere, but thus far nobody responded. Our Site wants to implement Fakemons to play on our Server. We have everything we need but one: A spriter. Would anyone be interested in being a spriter? For more info, please reply as I don´t want to Spam on here ^^
I am actually pretty grateful for the reordering mechanic you are implementing. New pokemon are never going to stop coming out, and it is good to have a means to bump up new favorites to old lists without having to redo the entire list all the way over again. Additionally, I've been using the lists of friends to catch pokemon in their favorites for them, but because I organize priority in my list a different way than they do, being able to shuffle around a personal instance of their list such that I can avoid getting lost in the clutter is very useful. In addition to that point, if you could make a "remove from my list" option, like a little trash bin at the very bottom of the list that picks could be dragged to, that'd be cool. Opinions and emotions change, and sometimes it's just time to let go of old friends, you know?
Very late reply to Missingmetaphorsoup, whose comment I managed to forget about before I actually responded: it was pretty much a one-time thing. Gold or Silver was literally one of the first pages I made for this site back in 2002 - which is why the writing in it is a bit wonky and it capitalizes things incorrectly; I was twelve. I think for the most part the version differences in later games have been more subjective - I could pore over which version's exclusives seem better, and maybe analyze which version of the plot seems to make more sense, but the objective imbalance of the Lugia/Ho-Oh you get that I spent most of the Gold or Silver section talking about (and was the main reason I made it - I was a little bitter that I got worse legendaries than people with Silver) isn't a thing in later games.
