(This is regarding the post about no animated sprites)

Hey Butterfree, I found this: which is used for an online battle simulator, so it has all or almost all sprites even from past generations. They include the x+y animated, animated shiny, animated back, and animated back shiny. I have not found any missing pictures.

I completely understand that. It also bugs me that they haven't been properly ripped. If I ever come across a decent batch I'll definitely let you know :)

Thanks for your diligent work!

I'm not replacing them altogether - I personally would probably find animations distracting while trying to use the picker, and I know people who get headaches looking at animations - but I could add it as an option… if I actually had a full set of animations, that is.

To my knowledge, properly ripping these from the game still isn't possible; the ones floating around the internet are "ripped" manually and one at a time using capture cards, and I've yet to find a full set including all forms, gender differences, etc. plus shinies of all of them. If you know of an actual full set somewhere, by all means send it my way, but I really don't like the inconsistency of having animations for some Pokémon but not all, so until that happens I'm probably not doing it.

Hi! I have commented before suggesting implementing a Type / Generation filter on the Favorite Pokémon Picker, and I'm glad you added it! It works perfectly.

I was wondering if you could maybe replace the sprites on the picker with animated sprites of the Pokémon's idle animation?

Great website; I hope that my trashy website can be as good as yours.

Also I would like to say that I cheated on the marquee by looking in the Javascript code (oops)

I used to let people use my fake Pokémon in fangames with credit, but I'm afraid several years back I decided to stop - they were starting to feel like the internet's 'stock fakes' and I just wasn't quite comfortable with that. Nothing against your project personally - I just feel I should stay consistent on this, since otherwise it wouldn't be fair to the other projects I've said no to over the years since. Good luck working on your games!

Hey, I need fakemon ideas for my game, Pokémon V, and Pokémon W. I was wondering if I could use some of yours and credit the designs. Thanks in advance.

I love your website, Butterfree. The Cave Of Dragonflies has been around and active since during the second generation of Pokémon.

One's late twenties is not old. I am a thirty-year-old girly guy.

Earth is approximately four billion, five hundred forty million years old. The Hadean eon is more than four billion years ago. You have got to see these pictures of Hadean Earth. Earlier Hadean Earth is a cracked rock with an ocean of fire. Later Hadean Earth has visible land, water and fire from orbit. The holes in the land look like boiling bubbles.

Hope you have a great 2018!

Hello! I'm the guy who suggested adding a Type filter to the Favorite Pokémon Picker.

I was thinking if it would be possible to use the animated sprites for it instead of the static Dex ones, as I think seeing a Pokémon moving really helps evaluating it when it comes to favorites. Maybe add the option to switch between Static Sprites, Animated Ones (maybe even add the option to use Sugimori art). I don't know if that would be too much work to be worth it, of course.

Also, I'd love if we could filter the Pokémon by evolution stages other than just excluding NFE.

Merry Christmas Butterfree and tCoD! :D I hope you had a fantastic day!

I think around two years ago I asked Butterfree for some help with CSS, and now that I've finally had time to build my website I'm so happy - it really is a rewarding experience! Thank you so much for always being an inspiration to me, and I can't wait to see what the new year brings to tCoD.

Just wanted to thank you for your RBY Safari Zone mechanics page. I've been working on my pokedex for the virtual console games, and the percentages for each strategy are exactly what I've been depending on.

I'm planning to do something in that direction. I haven't quite settled on exactly what form it will take, since there's a certain tradeoff between the complexity of the tool required and programming ability required of the end-user.

I'm a huge fan of your Pokemon Picker! I really love the way it works, and as someone who often has trouble choosing their favorites with many things, I was wondering if it would be possible to release something similar that runs on the same algorithm, but allows you to input your own choices instead of being limited to Pokemon? Just a suggestion. Thanks in advance.
