    This is a homebrew containing all 493 pokemon from GenIV and below. Any and all feedback is appreciated.

    Status update as of 4-16-11
    • Back to work once more. The data portion of the skills and locations is put in. Now I just need to do the graphical side of it; such as it appearing on the map. With luck, the rest is just a matter of programming simple things and making everything aesthetically appealing. I suppose I should add the 5th generation in as well, lol.

    Download:
    You'll need winRAR to extract it.
    Code:
    Change log (v0.2):
    -Addition of 'Name That Pokemon' and 'Name That Cry'
    -A few aesthetic changes
    -Fixed a few descriptions
    -Removal of redundant files
    
    Known bugs/oddities:
    -Some pokemon abilities are listed twice.
    -It's possible to get the same name multiple times in the list of answers. This is a problem if the multiples are the pokemon you're guessing.
    -Version still reads as '0.1'.
    -Slowpoke apparently evolves into Jumpluff instead of Slowking
    -Slowking is replaced by Sunkern in the evo u_u

    Awesome! Reminds me of my project a while ago, lost it tho.
    I'm wondering, what did you use to store all the info in? I ended up using XML, but with a shitload of pokémon, it was to slow.

    A rather large multi-dimensional char array. It was something like 531x41. Certainly not the best way to go about it as it eats a good bit of the ram, but it worked out nonetheless.



    //edit

    As of summer '10, I switched to 500 or so txt files, and bundle them all in 1 file. Then I just read from it by offsets.

    Aaah, yea, tried that too, but I wasn't really fond of having all the data in the actual code.
    Anyway, I'm gonna try it out in a few hours and leave some feedback [​IMG]

    great app

    Not working on my Acekard though. I use AKAIO 1.6RC2. I even DLDI patched it and it didn't work.

    Thanks for the support, and I'm looking into the problem now. That's what I get for testing it on an outdated flashcart(R4). Now to find my Acekard. e_e



    I'm not really into the whole competition thing. [​IMG] I enjoy his project, and will certainly have room for it when it comes out. The more pokémon homebrew the merrier!




    //edit//
    It seems the one without the cries is working on AKAIO 1.6RC2. ASlib, which is what I use to load sounds doesn't seem to be compatible with Acekard at the moment, so I'm off to look for a fix for it. I'll update the first telling people with Acekard to use the one without the cries for now.

    HAHA, I was JUST wondering if there was one of these not two days ago. Though my main want for one is so I can look up moves and HMs and get a list of pokemon that can learn them when I don't have bulbapedia available.

    Also a weakness chart maybe?

    Yes, I think that is the problem. The AKAIO release candidates recently added homebrew soft-reset, which isn't compatible with some other programs as well. I mentioned in the AKAIO release thread that Morning Timer wasn't working either. If you want these programs to work with AKAIO 1.6 RC2, try disabling soft-reset for the time being. I imagine they'll likely have that fixed or provide a workaround by the time 1.6 Final is released.

    The problem should be fixed now. I switched over to MaxMod instead of using ASlib.

    Cry version tested and seems to be working on original R4 with YSM09.12.05 and Acekard 2.1 with AKAIO 1.6RC2.


    Why thank you. [​IMG]

    All moves, location, and I believe weaknesses and such can be found on Serebii. Only problem really would be going through and getting the data for each.. would take forever.

    brilliant!

    since my DS is a crimson version, maybe i could scare my younger bro saying it is a pokedex v2.0, just like the anime one.

    maybe it can be useful someday...

    Thanks for the support. [​IMG]

    Yes, and yes. ^
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I'll release the next version including the little minigames once I put in some sort of search function. That'll probably be the last release until I figure out a presentable way to do moves and locations.

    //edit//
    Does anyone prefer the cryless version over the one with cries? I was just wondering if I should keep up support for it. I mean, it's not a /whole/ lot of work changing from one to the other, but it might not be worth it for a 4MB difference. [​IMG]
