PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Would anyone else find a contest movedex useful?

I am doing a lot of contests at the moment to get all my main Pokémon ribbons and to get the paintings in the Art Gallery in Lilycove (Sapphire). I know this is a minigame and most people probably don't care about contests, but perhaps I'm not alone? I typically use Pokemondb to look up what moves my contest Pokemon learm and at which levels, but then I have to cross reference with Bulbapedia to find out what contest type the move is, and what effect it has.

I love the way Pokemondb has links all over the place that interconnect (you can click on a Pokémon to see what moves it learns, you can click on a move to see what type it is...) Anyway it would be much easier if I could just click the link for the move that I'm interested in from my Pokémon's learnset, and then see in its move description what type it is and what effect it has for different generations, like you can with the normal battle movedex. I know it's of low importance so you wouldn't want this information cluttering up the main move page, so maybe a little button somewhere that you can choose to click to toggle between contest and normal mode?

I look forward to the day when I don't have to sroll down for hours and rely on ctrl F to find what I'm looking for on Bulbapedia because it's all neatly displayed on Pokemondb for me :D but perhaps I'm just being lazy.

I'd agree with this. While I wouldn't find it useful all that often now due to Showdown being my preferred way to play Pokemon at the moment and my Ruby version having that corrupted save data problem, I was once really into contests. I would love to see this feature here.
Oh my gosh yes; I don't know of any sources ever anywhere that has this sort of thing.
I used to really go crazy with contests collecting medals in my Emerald, and would gladly go back into it.
This = FTW :3 Seriously, +1.
I have an old guide where all that stuff was included, I will try to write it down here.
very useful indeed

This is not a answer for the question itself, but a list of the Gen 4 moves and their effect in Contests for Pokemaster to use if he decides to make add this function.

This is moves A-C, the rest is to come if it wanted. (Sorry it looks so messy at the moment, I am having some issues transferring the list from a Word document, I will edit it)
