01/20/20: Gen VIII Favorites

I'd been hoping for an official release of high-quality art for the Galar Pokémon, but since that still hasn't happened, I've given up and am just making my temporary Gen VIII Favorite Pokémon Picker, which uses party icons, official for now. I didn't do so when I first made it because it was kind of rushed and half-baked and very much made as a temporary thing for the particularly desperate, but I've now made a number of fixes to it (thanks to @shake_the_sky on Twitter, who took me up on my persistent requests for corrections) and hopefully it's reasonably solid now.

It still will not clobber your regular picker state... but if you'd like to import your regular picker state into the Gen VIII picker, I've now also added an import/export feature to both the original picker and the Gen VIII one, allowing you to take your regular picker state and quickly import it into the Gen VIII picker. It's accessible in the same place the "Show debug information" link used to be, in the bottom right of the "Found favorites" tab.

Again, this Gen VIII picker is temporary, until there's a better permanent solution for images to use. The regular picker will eventually be updated with the Gen VIII Pokémon too, when there is a polished, consistent decently-sized set of images to use for it.

01/01/20: Happy 2020!

And with that, another year has passed! I hope your 2020 lives up to the coolness of the year itself.

I need to be getting to bed, but I would briefly like to give my heartfelt thanks to...

  • ...all of my friends, but a special shoutout to Psychic. I had a really rough time at the beginning of the year and I don't know what I would have done if she hadn't been there.
  • ...Shadey, my husband, who I couldn't be happier to share my life with.
  • ...my parents, whom I just love seeing and talking to and as I talk to more people about their parents I feel increasingly lucky with mine.
  • ...my Patreon supporters, for chipping in to support the work that I do.
  • ...everyone who indulged me as I wrote rambling commentary on the entirety of my ridiculous fanfic and followed along with it.
  • ...everyone who played Sutoraiku High.
  • ...elyvorg, who is extremely included under "all of my friends", but also in particular for her ridiculously thorough, really interesting Danganronpa V3 commentary, which I've been thoroughly enjoying this year.
  • ...Hatari, for giving me something new and ridiculous to enjoy during my unemployment.
  • ...Vince Gilligan, for Breaking Bad, which is still my favorite thing (I am now working on episode commentaries).
  • ...all of you guys still visiting this website.
  • ...my cat Birta, who is the softest embodiment of sunshine.

Here's to more content in this coming year! I am currently doing some Colosseum research, will try to get some kind of vaguely adequate Gen VIII Favorite Pokémon Picker working, and will revamp those last few reviews so I can move on to the later movies. Plus various other plans and bits of plans.

12/28/19: Weather Tool

Some actual new Sword and Shield content: the Sword and Shield Weather Encounter Tool is here! This tool allows you to set the weather in each zone of your Wild Area and get an overview of which Pokémon you can currently find and where.

It currently doesn't include "special encounters", the preset Pokémon that always appear in particular spots; I'll try to add those for completeness when I get the chance.
