I believe it was something to do with the fact other websites like Serbii were hard to navigate through and looked naf. Remember the Pokebase came some time after the database.
Yah huh. ^
I've always wanted to ask this question

For the main site, there wasn't a specific "inspiration" as such. At the time I didn't like other Pokemon sites out there. They had the content but I found it hard to read and navigate. For Bulbapedia you have to search for everything that you want to find, there is no menu. And it was years before I even found that Serebii has a menu on the right hand side of the pages, I thought it was all ads.

I just wanted information listed quite simply, hence the "database" format and name. I always think about the best way to display information and so on... which is probably why it takes so long to add stuff to the site, I'm too much of a perfectionist ;)

As for the Q&A section, I said on this question:

The software we use (Question2Answer) is loosely based on Stack Overflow. They use their own original system, not Q2A. They kind of revolutionised the Q&A format and were the inspiration for me starting this site.

Pokebase, Meta, and Battle Sub way are easier to navigate throug than other sites like ign.com and serebii.net. I would say the pokemon data base is way easier to navigate through. That is why I prefer the pokemon data base to help me! Thanks for making it!
F.Y.I new people are asking for their names to be changed.:)
I totally agree with Kyurem. Pokebase is way easier to navigate than all of the other sites ive seen. Of them all this is my favorite.
Give him time =='
I'm giving him time. I'm just letting him know.
