    Nice Etch-a-Sketch skin you have there.
    I'd like it if the Pokemon in its database was editable, so I could make a Tempdex.

    lol, it isn't mine, and someone else made that skin [​IMG]

    I suggested that too, so it could be universal, for any game, or for a sexual prank, oh the childish fun [​IMG]

    And the picture in USN was messed up, showed up in the bottom, that's fixed now. [​IMG]

    I just got an idea [​IMG]

    Judging from the picture, you may want to tone down the background where the text appears, or make the text stand out a little more. It doesn't need to be excessively showy, as long as we can use it, right?

    Edit: Actually...maybe it's my monitor. It seems fine now. :wtf:;

    There are, as of 10/09/2008, 493 + variants (like Rotom's, Shaymin's, etc.). Quite a lot of hard work, if you ask me.

    Its good progress, the skin is tempory and took wabsta 10 mins (all colors).

    We're planning to make it customisable with text files.

    A kindom far far away!
    Not Bad guys, its a good start!,when this has music and a lot more pokemons, its will be gr8, but 1 thing i dont understand is, if this is going to be like a normal pokedex then whats the point, people can just go to a pokemon game and use the inbuilt pokedex...unless there is something intresting in this app...its not much of a point..

    Eventhouhh i love what you have done! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Would be nice if it displays the graphic artwork for each pokemon sprite from every game as well as the different pokedex entry from each game. Would be a massive work though. Also, is this thing played with the DS on it's side?

    Ash:"Pokedex! Gimme info on that pokemon!"
    Dex:"Thats a tree..."
    Ash:"Not again!"

    ten years too late.

    Would be cool to scan WiFi networks and each one will be a pokemon unique to that address with its own stats.

    Would make more sense then scanning the cat over and over again.

    Also a second on the custom skins.
    I'd love to make some too.

    Very cute.
    Would use it if I ever have a spare DS with homebrew and am not able to go online.

    Does this happen to have a feature to compare height of the pokemon with height of the trainers from the games??
    I find that completely useful to me. Even more useful than the location. [​IMG]
