Do you think that a quicksort would work better for the Pokemon Picker?

Having read the original post you made about this on tumblr well before, I'd be interested for you to copy over the history behind making your own version :3c I'm sure lots of visitors will recall the original that swept the web, and will be curious about the changes you made. The only caveat is it'll take away from the elegant single-serving of the page, but I'm sure no one will mind the loss :b
I can also see prev. gen sprites being an interesting expansion, given you mentioned the visual impression makes such a difference (and I immediately felt it too; kricketot, what the heck?). I guess of course that causes some problems with 'forwards' compatibility, but hey, there's probably some genwunners out there who'd appreciate not needing to deal with later gens at all :P

In the meantime, I've only got a few batches in, and each time I'm feeling the pressure of all the other things I should be doing first, but I'm just so curious.. T__T "Just one more" will be the death of me, hahaa

I don't know how difficult it'd be, but it'd be cool to have the regional Pokedexes in the Favorite Pokemon Picker.

It would essentially automatically dump all the Pokemon not in that Pokedex out of the running, and you could figure out, for example, your favorite Pokemon in the Expanded Sinnoh Pokedex.

It'd be neat if you included a Mega Pokémon option for the Favorite Pokémon Picker too.

Good job on it though!

Would you mind if you could show us your favorites?

This is a really cool game!! I've been trying to find out what my favorite pokes are for the longest and this game(although arduous) help me narrow them down. :)

Hello, Butterfree! I have been following your website since 2009. Thank you for making one of the best Pokemon websites I know! :P

I got a query too. While playing the Number Game, one of the Pokemon I got wrong was Flabebe simply because I written its name without the accents. Could you probably make a second option and make it allowable for people to spell Flabebe's name without the accents or would it be easier to copy and paste an E with an accent?

Back Button
Commenting on: 08-16-14

Is it possible to make a back/undo button for the favorites test? I've had to reset several times because of accidental double-clicking.

(Alternatively, just blocking the double-click thing if multiple Pokemon are selected could work)

I've been playing Colosseum lately, and watching videos of both the Orre games as well, and a question has popped up in my head. Do the legendary birds and beasts have a higher catch rate in the Gamecube games, or have I and the people I've watched just been very lucky with them?

I know there hasn't been a whole lot of research done on Colosseum and XD, but this is something I'd like to know the answer to if you ever have the time to look into it. :)

Damn.

As a math and pokémon nerd I love to see that kind of stuff and I've been looking for the sixth generation algorithm for a while now.

Well, I hope that eventually we finally get it =)

Unfortunately nobody has been able to find any algorithms in the sixth-generation games yet - ROMs only got extracted a couple of months ago, and without an emulator it's a whole lot harder to find the piece of code that does anything in particular. I'm dying to know how it works, though - it's definitely not the same as the fifth-generation games, since balls can shake twice again.

Do you know anything about the capture mechanics for sixth generation?

Yes…? What is the question?

River of The Stars

Ok, first I want to say… I was having some troubles with the 'name this Pokémon' because I can't spell… On the other hand, I think this is a great site! Mostly 'cause I have none of my own, and yours is amazing!! I have a question to ask though.. I haven't been here long (Just found it today..) and I haven't looked around too much. But the question is about Black 2.

That was never properly on the site - I was just fiddling with it and posted it on my Twitter and Tumblr. It's here

Okay, I've been looking for a particular page and I can't find it. It's a game (of sorts) to help someone determine their favorite Pokemon - it displays groups of Pokemon, and you pick one or more of them to move on to the next round.

I actually found it the other day, and I remember that it only had up to Gen V Pokemon, so it's probably kind of old, but I can't find it again.

Hi! Nice to see you still at it too.

Your site is actually pretty nice, and if you applied for affiliation I'd probably accept (though I'd have some nitpicks). My only quality requirements are that the site has some worthwhile content and that it's made with care and some basic professionalism rather than sloppily thrown together, which I think is quite reasonable. I do not demand that your site contains nothing I advise against in my website tips or Sections that Suck - those only come into play to tip the scales if I find the quality to be borderline (and are amply made up for by a bit of originality and dedication, of which you appear to have plenty).

And obviously you have a right to have whatever you want on your website. I don't agree, however, that therefore nobody should point out that some kinds of content aren't very useful - the point, after all, is not to tell people they should take their less useful pages down, but to encourage them to make them more useful. I don't just want more Pokémon websites (though I do want that) - I dearly want those sites to be good and have genuinely worthwhile content, so that I can recommend them wholeheartedly and not just because they're Pokémon websites.

Being unnecessarily wordy is an annoying tendency of mine that I'm working on. That being said, the "Applying for Affiliation" subsection on the affiliation page clearly says you should just send me an e-mail with the URL to your site that makes it clear you're applying for affiliation, so I'm not quite sure what's confusing you on that in particular; could you elaborate? Is it just that it links to the contact page instead of directly including my e-mail address?
