PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

What is your most wanted feature for Pokemon Database (the site)? [closed]

7 votes

I'll be finishing work for Xmas this week and should have a little more time to work on the site. I have a list stretching to the moon of things I want to add to the site, but I'd like to hear what everyone else wants.

And by asking here, everyone can upvote each item so I know which are most popular. (That doesn't mean I will definitely do all the top suggestions, but it is more likely.) You can suggest anything that's been suggested before or anything new you think of. Rules:

  • One suggestion per answer only. This way we can vote on individual features. If you have several suggestions, post multiple answers.
  • This is for the main site only, not Pokebase/meta/RMT. So anything like the Pokedex, movedex, any other pages. There is a separate question for Pokebase.
  • Vote up your favourite suggestions but please don't down-vote. If you don't like a suggestion just leave it alone.
  • Don't suggest an items section, I am already doing that.

I will keep this open for a week or so and start work next weekend.

To repeat: this is for the main site, not Pokebase nor any member stuff.

closed with the note: Finished taking suggestions.

Change the design to the one you created and showed to some of us in chat!!!

answered Dec 18, 2012 by Mewderator
Don't worry I am working on this. Though it is kind of hard to do it in parallel to the current site. I need to stop updating the site, completely switch to the new design and rewrite all the pages :S
i dint see it :(( D:

Do u have a link??
Just a suggestion, can we still keep the font? I like this one, creative from other sites.

Post some more videos on the PokemonDbNet YouTube page!

The first few videos scored thousands of views, which is pretty epic. It'd be nice if we had some more videos there :D

Let's keep some banners for the site ready before-hand. By banners, I mean, the pic with Electivire and Scyther. Remember the time you (PM) changed the banner on the occasion of April Fool's? Awesome idea,that. It'd be fun if we have one for some more occasions ( like Christmas, for instance).

Pronunciation of Pokemon!

On the Pokedex, you should put up a section where people can see the pronunciation of Pokemon, like


I have trouble especially with pronouncing Unova Pokemon like Kyurem.

From: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/12018/pronounciation-of-pokemon-can-be-tough-suggestion-add-them

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Victini Victory
Is that certain?
No. It's 'kee-yoo-rem'.
This will cause a feud over things. Metagross can be pronounced different, reuniclus, etc.
o Kyogre. Key-OG-ure, or Ky-OG-ure
I can get the official pronunciations from the Pokedex 3D Pro app if need be.
Yeah Fizz if we need it we'll ask.

You should add animations on screen like Kupo did. Like in winter, snow animation. In Fall, falling leaves, In Spring flower pedals. In Summer, Sun rays or rainfall. Also add a button to stop the animation for Lagg purposes.

Maps/Puzzle section suggestion
This would be nice as i don't want to spend my time walking arounf in a cave or stuck on a Lt.Surge type gym.

A page with the animated sprites. Instead of going to an individual Pokemon's page to find it, we can go to a page full of them.

answered Dec 16, 2012 by Mewderator
That would lag. And that's what Pokecheck is for.

Something where you could place 6 Pokemon and have the page give you all the weaknesses and resistances. If I made a team of 6 Ratata, and plugged it into the calculator, it will tell you that I have 6 Fighting weaknesses and 6 Ghost immunities.

Well as you know. You have an advanced tab on the toolbar. I was thinking, why not put a few things into a beginner bar, so that the newcomers will know what is going on.

On the Puzzles page, it would be sweet if editors and mods could create guides.

tbh the site is more for the main games than the spin-offs.
Yeah, but why not? It's not like I'm talking about Quartz or something.
