08/05/21: Better picker form controls

The Favorite Pokémon Picker now has more granular settings for Pokémon forms. You can now separately include regional variants, other alternate forms, Mega Evolutions, Gigantamax forms, other battle transformations, aesthetic variants, and gender differences, as well as being able to choose only to include "major" differences like before. There are some subtleties and quirks to this, because there isn't really one clear classification of forms, but this is a best effort at something that'd make sense and cover most cases for this common request.

Let me know if I've accidentally misclassified some forms, etc.; I'm pretty tired and did this all manually.

You may need to shift+refresh in order for the script to properly update itself, or something in that vein.

Still having the same problem; this is the list I'm trying to resume from:

On the favorite pokemon picker app, nothing happens when I click "continue from this list" the second time. (I click it within the link, and I get a pop up showing the 80 or so on my old list, but when I click "continue from this list" within the pop-up, it doesn't seem to recognize that I'm clicking at all. I tried this in both chrome and edge on a windows 10 laptop.

Umm, please, excuse me, I don't want to be annoying.

You changed the sprite of Xerneas at the correct sprite, but forgot to change the shiny sprite too.

Okay, I admit you're right. I am obsessed with these things, and I emphasize the word "obsessed". Judging things for a single reason among so many variables is not enough of a difference.

But there was one more mistake that I forgot to mention to you, just one: the Xerneas sprites. It is true that Xerneas has two forms: neutral and active. But the two sprites of her are the same, the neutral mode. Is just change the active mode sprite.

To add - people being annoyed with having to rank eighteen different Arceus forms in particular separately was literally the reason I implemented the major only distinction to begin with!

Thanks for the corrections. I simply disagree with your quibbles with the major/minor designations, though. The point of designating some form changes as major and others as minor is to let people pick between forms that they like more than others, without wasting their time making them sort through dozens of forms that aren't actually different enough for an average person to meaningfully like one but not another.

Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist's forms, for example, literally look identical; I have a very hard time imagining that there exist many people in the world who could meaningfully say that Super Pumpkaboo is one of their favorite Pokémon but Small Pumpkaboo isn't. Given this, making people rank five different sizes of Pumpkaboo as if they should really care is just wasting their time!

On a similar basis, I don't think I've ever seen anyone say that they like specifically Red Flower Florges but not Yellow Flower Florges, or Flying Arceus but not Bug Arceus. These aren't fundamental aesthetic changes to the Pokémon that would alter whether the Pokémon is appealing; they're just tweaks. Maybe you prefer Red Flower Florges over Yellow Flower Florges, but is there a Pokémon X where you distinctly like Red Flower Florges more than X but Yellow Flower Florges less than X? If not, then it's pointless to make you rank all the colors separately.

I'm sure there might exist people who just despise anything that's yellow and therefore hate Yellow Flower Florges specifically, or whatever - but I expect they're a vast minority compared to the people to whom ranking those partial color changes as separate Pokémon would just be a pointless annoyance.

Hi, thanks for separate forms of Pokémon. But I want to say the mistakes that I found.

The form of Unbound Hoopa is in the "other battle transformations", and this form not happen in battle, is out of battle. Should be "other alternative forms".

The forms of Florges and his evolutive family appears when the mark "major forms only" isn't cheked. Looking their forms with notable different colors, I think their forms have major differences.

The forms of Pumpkaboo and Gourgeist have the same case, only if the mark "only forms major" is uncheked. These forms have changes in their stats, so these forms have major differences.

The form of Ultra-Necrozma should be a "other battle transformation", it show when the mark "other alternative forms" is cheked, but this form only changes in battle.

The forms of Silvally and Arceus show with the mark "only forms major" is uncheked. They are a major differences, I think.

And the Fairy Arceus is not introduced in the 4th generation, it was in the 6th generation, when the pixie plate was introduced.

Is ok Zygarde 10% in "other alternative forms", but Zygarde Complete should be in "other battle transformations".

Male Indeedee show in normal an psyquic types and is ok, but female forms only show in psyquic type. Both are psyquic/normal type.

This is all that I want to comunicate.
