07/07/10: HG/SS Locations

All right, I have finally finished the HG/SS Locations section. Which... isn't actually HG/SS Locations so much as D/P/Pt/HG/SS locations.

The table display is mostly the same as in the old D/P Locations; the big difference is that there aren't two hundred tables on one hugeamongous page. The big difference in the backend is that this time it's actually interacting with a database in real-time instead of being a static pregenerated page, which is in all respects more sensible, and that the code is one heck of a lot neater than the headache it used to be.

It's awfully rough at the moment; I'm going to Germany until the seventeenth, though, so I figured I might as well put it up in its current state before I go and refine it later. Among other things, I will be adding the "Where" and "Notes" that the old section had, there will be Places to Train for HG/SS (as its own section, though; I'll also be splitting off the D/P Places to Train into its own section), there will be an additional tool for finding all locations where a particular Pokémon appears (across all five versions) and where it's easiest to find, and I'll be finding some way to make finding the location you want less cumbersome. At least in some browsers, selecting a drop-down box and starting to type a name will automatically select the appropriate option for you, so be sure to utilize that.

Suggestions for other stuff to add or fix while I'm gone would be great.

293 Fun fact: The above sprite has a 1/8192 chance of being shiny. Feel free to brag if you get one.

Awesome! Even though I don't own D/P/HG or SS, it is still pretty awesome.

The problem is I'm not sure the Headbutt locations are in the database at all at the moment (hence the lack of Pewter City - there are no encounters for it that are in the database). That's not really under my control, since it's veekun's database, but of course Eevee/a_magical_me will be getting those in eventually.

And yes, I just got back; there's no way I could have been updating. I didn't even have any Internet at all.

The revamping guide is oddly worded. It's defined as "the art of taking a sprite from one of the older games and recoloring/shading it to the quality of a post-Advance counterpart", but Revamping Rule 4 says to "mimic thy Advance sprite closely", plus you use R/S/FR/LG sprites in the screenshots. Is using a D/P/Pt/HG/SS sprite a violation of said rule, or did you just forget to update it?

P.S. Have you ever used an Emerald sprite for something? ;)

It's quite a nice tool (at least in my opinion), although there really should be a 'Back to TCoD' button somewhere, since it gets somewhat annoying having to scroll through lots of Back pages if you've been using it for a while. (There's also no Headbutt data as far as I can tell, but since the rarities aren't on Serebii either, I'm not sure whether you accidentally left it out or if no one knows what the rarities are.)
