PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Suggestion: Include Pre-Evolution moves in move pages and moveset search

0 votes

For instance, let's say I wanted to see all of the Pokémon that could learn Baton Pass. I could just go to the Baton Pass page and see all of the compatible Pokémon, but what if I'm stupid and didn't realize that every Eeveelution can have Baton Pass as well?

A more reasonable problem would be if I typed Swords Dance and Baton Pass into the moveset search. Leafeon is able to learn both of these moves, but it doesn't show up in the results. The reason for this? Baton Pass was learned in a pre-evolved state.

I hope it's pretty obvious how big of an issue this one small error could be if you want to build a competitive team. Anyway, it would be great if this problem could be fixed.

I think the moveset searcher is outdated
Well, taking your Eevee example.
Suppose you go on the page of Baton Pass, you'll see Eevee on the level up moves section. If you don't see the rest of the Eeveelutions, it's common sense that every Eeveelution gets it as a Pre-Evolution move. That's why they are pr-evo moves after all.
but what if for Leafeon:
Bite and Giga Drain
or other eeveelutions
The moveset searcher isn't outdated, it just doesn't have prevolution moves. I will look at adding those asap.
Thanks, Pokemaster!  You're the best!

I have finally finished implementing the changes for this!

It took a heck of a long time, I needed to make some major changes to our database. But the moveset searcher should now work for every move combo that you can find in the Pokedex. Should work a little better on mobile too.

Please check it out and let me know if you have any problems!
