Alcremie is so cute :3 thanks for the list butterfree. I like knowing how to evolve one more now. I wonder if i can easily make the rainbow one…..(everything i own now as well as pink should probably have rainbows. especially since…who knows what dark times might be up ahead *sigh* friday the 13th. i'm gonna hate that day…forever…..)

I spoke to Butterfree once about this (long time ago when the picker was new, doubt they even remembered me) but honestly I feel the 3D models kinda lose some of the charm that sprites have. Charmander used to be (and still is depending on the game) be my favorite Pokemon but he just look extremely awkward in 3D. Also the poses (more so when Butterfree have to set them up to show gender differences) can cause a bias as well as you might have to choose between a borderline T-posing default Pokemon or one showing action. Like some people think such won't make a difference but many people will still argue the earlier sprites for the game which gave almost every Pokemon a pose was much more enjoyable than the default standing stuff we get nowadays. I feel voting between the two even if subconsciously cause bias. I honestly unironically wanted an option to switch to a sprite based graphic system. Butterfree understandably said no and that is fair, that would had been a lot of hassle. Now though given models are becoming more of an issue and many people are willing to make sprites for free for the fun of it, I kinda want to pop in and ask "how about now?" While you would need permission to use them I'm sure a browser game call GPX+ is working on the new sprites (if they haven't done them already) and I know at the very least they are up to Sun and Moon if nothing else. Of course there could be other Pokemon games for fangroups that also have usable high quality sprites. Just a suggestion though, if Butterfree judgement say they shouldn't then I'll accept that like I did last time. I'm truly a fan of this site and just like anyone else on here I just want to see the best out of it.

You're in luck, because I just did exactly that (funnily enough, having not yet seen your comment). Enjoy.

I still think that using menu sprites would be a good idea, even though they're small. They don't cover shinies, or the more minor colour and gender variations, but they do cover different forms!

Most people doing the picker probably at least have an idea of what the full Pokemon looks like already.

You could also keep the current version of the picker as a separate version, and create a new page for the Galar picker using menu sprites, perhaps? That's one way to compromise.

Commenting on the galar pokemon related post (also hi DP fan :P).

I find it interesting how the newer Pokemon games put more and more importance on battling to become friends with Pokemon. The battles definetly have a meaning to the creators, and like articles on this site of said, they're probably more good than they are bad or the what not. The new friendship system sounds challenging, it kind of scares me a bit xD Pokemon losing trust if they're in the pc too long o.O; but JUST battling (not just 'leveling up'. really any battle) and also the camp in general may make regaining trust go a bit faster. The new games are one of a kind. I wonder if i'll enjoy playing them :) i'm sure it'll be hard to go back to older ones a little if i feel i need to keep proving myself to my pokemon xDDD haha….how are you taking the frienship system, butterfee? I ask others this as well. Maybe some fans don't care as much as me (i won't judge them for it. its still a game and i know that).

Galar pokemon for the picker will be awesome :3 One of my overall favs is alcremie, its so adorable^^

Sure! But I'd like some more precise numbers if possible, and confirmation that what's listed there is actually true and/or there isn't anything else going on. Serebii is not… great… about accuracy.

@Negrek: According to Serebii, it depends on the type of raid battle (ordinary Pokemon or Gigantamax), whether or not the encounter rate was boosted by an ongoing event, and whether it's solo or multiplayer. Solo, non-event encounters are supposedly a guaranteed catch. Assuming this is all true, Butterfree's observations about the capture algorithm seem to apply here as well; a G-max Centiskorch I fought solo last night broke free, and considering the difficulty rating it was almost certainly a higher level than my Pokemon.

I'm talking about creating new renders of all of them, not just the Sw/Sh ones, in a single consistent style. (Although the Sw/Sh models absolutely are rendered with outlines in the games; they're just comparatively way thinner outlines, because they're HD games.)

even if someone does make renders of the models they won't be consistent with the other pokémon. they removed the outline effect that previous generations had; it's not a huge thing but if you see swsh models next to older models you can definitely see the difference.

Ah, but how does capturing work for max raid battles?

Josh: Yeah, there's an issue with recent Chrome on Android for some reason. I'm working on figuring out what's wrong there and how to fix it.

Heracross: Those artworks for the Galar Pokémon aren't out either! Bulbagarden Archives has some of the pre-release artwork published on the official site, but for all the other Pokémon that didn't get revealed pre-release, we don't yet have any official artwork.

What about instead use sprites (since gen8 dont have all of them and would be weird this mix of gen7 and 8) you could try use artworks from guidebooks, like check Bulbapedia Galar Mons Page… 2D for me was always better tbh

Trying to use the picker on mobile (Huawei p20) and I don't see any images for any Pokémon. Once a favourite has been picked I can see the image if I press and hold the icon but that's not so useful when I don't know what I'm picking 😅

Well, 1) that'd be stealing Serebii's pictures that he manually compiled from his game, and 2) the Favorite Pokémon Picker includes all Pokémon, not just the ones in the Galar Pokédex, and therefore I need not just images of the Galar Pokémon, but reasonably consistent-looking images of all the Pokémon. (If the Galar Pokémon look different from all the other Pokémon in the picker, it's going to look weird.)
