Its interesting to see the new updates this site gets to this day :P Such a nostalgic pokemon site from my beloved early pokemon fandom teen years…

I'm already in far too many Discord servers, I'm afraid, and don't talk very much in any of them! If they've got anything they wanted to ask me about, though, they're welcome to post here or e-mail me.

My phone auto corrected my name from “Kanto Champion” to “Kanye Champion”

Are you up for joining any of your fan’s Discord servers? Because I have a few friends who like your site, Butterfree. And would love to have you join their Discord servers.

Paul: That'd be feasible, sure. Will look into it.

Pokemon Fan: I logged in just to make sure I don't have any PMs or something, but I kind of just fell out of it a few years ago; I've got so many other things to do.

Are you planning on returning to Pokecommunity sometime soon, Dragonfree?

Hey Hlín, I love your Pokémon List Generator. Do you think there's a possibility to include a variable concerning Pokémon name language? Like [%name%|german]? I would love that!

xoxo Paul

The clunkiness is mainly the sheer number of options for at least the Gen VI/VII picker - for your average person, getting twenty form fields shoved in your face just looks intimidating and overcomplicated, and when half of those fields are in fact not going to be relevant the vast majority of the time, I'm very reluctant to make that the default.

The chance of catching it within so and so many balls is really just a way of expressing the previously stated probability in terms that might give a more practical idea of what that probability means. I think it's kind of awkward in the first place to give a number of balls for the turn-based balls, because you set a specific turn - by the next turn, the conditions have changed, so of course the result you got based on the previous turn number no longer applies! I could guess that you're going to be throwing more of the same balls on the next several turns, but why would you necessarily - after all, if the Quick Ball misses on the first turn, would you really go for another Quick Ball next turn in the first place? If you're using Timer Balls on a sleeping target, at some point the Pokémon is going to wake up and you have to spend a turn putting it back to sleep rather than using another ball - there's no way the calculator can account for that, but it still means that a result based on the idea you throw a new Timer Ball on every subsequent turn is not actually going to be accurate.

Really what I'd want most is a better explanation of what I actually mean by this chance of catching it within so and so many balls, but it's hard to think of an explanation that'd make sense without being incredibly lengthy and, again, making all this really confusing to the average user.

This is really cool! I don't think the "Show All" option is as clunky as you think. Since they're ordered from most likely to least likely, and change order upon checking different boxes, it makes sense to me.

One thing that's odd though: for Quick Ball, it says something like "You have a x% chance of capturing it per ball. Thus, you have at least a x% chance of catching it within 1 ball and at least a x% chance of catching it within 2 balls." This doesn't make much sense to me given that on the second ball, the chance would change.

Good to see this site still running! So much nostalgia :')

I wanted to make this a public post. It bothers me that I can be so emotionally sensitive over things, and that I can even get very dramatic over them :( I just want me and everyone else in this world to be friends! I hate it when people are enemies. I hate it more than you could even believe….*sigh*

It was a chance that the page would break (one in twelve)! Perhaps you got lucky.

Weirdly enough, I was using that page as a bookmark regularly (even before this update), yet the page seemed fine. Maybe it was me? :P

oh shoot, didn't realize the formatting and didn't pay attention to Butterfree's comment in my previous message. Silly mistake, agh!

I'm also interested in what Zowayix asked. I haven't really reached a conclusion about it myself and would like to hear some other opinions of it.

I'm dismayed by this decision, but much more dismayed by the absurdly over-the-top vitriol and uncharitable misinformed entitlement of the fandom response to it.

Not related, but what do you think about Masuda's comments during the E3 Treehouse? (That Sword and Shield will only have Galar regional dex Pokemon programmed in, and non-Galar dex Pokemon won't be transferable.)
