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

  • Up - Scroll Up
  • Down - Scroll Down
  • Left - Scroll up by 10
  • Right - Scroll Down by 10
  • X - Pokemon Cry
  • L & R - Cycle through alt. forms.
  • Touchscreen/Stylus for pretty much everything else including clicking on a pokemon in the list.

  • Moves and Loc aren't implemented yet. I definitely want to do it via a map, but it seems like a bit of a shitstorm to be honest.
  • There's well over 23,000 individual pieces of information regarding the pokemon. I'd be willing to bet I've screwed up quite a bit Feel free to message me/post regarding this.
  • The unown forms can be seen via pressing 'L' or 'R' at their main sprite screen.
  • Alternate forms will adjust the stats and such accordingly.
  • IVs range from 0-31; EVs range from 0-255; Nature can be negative(-), neutral(o) or positive(+); Level ranges form 1-100. More on this here.
  • Mr. Mime and Mime Jr. both need spaces and periods for the minigames. The male and female symbol will put (m) and (f), respectively, onto the end.
  • With that being said, I uploaded v0.2, sans the search functionality. Easy mode for the mini-games provides you with 6 names, one being the correct pokemon. Hard mode has you input the name yourself.

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

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

Omg! For 5 posts you are one wicked ass person xD. It sounds like Benjifs has a new competitor.

I'm not really into the whole competition thing.

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.

A weakness chart could be quite useful. I'll look into it. ^ As for the moves...eventually.

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.

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...

QUOTE(Dr.Killa @ Mar 29 2010, 06:44 AM) you should add minigames like "whos that pokemon" and "guess that cry"
Yes, and yes. ^

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.
