J. S. Bach Update - August 12, 2020
  • The Pokéforest search has seen the light of day, today! Now, when you search for a Pokémon, if you press space, you can keep typing to select what game you'd like to see the Pokémon's data in, right from the search bar! :) type something like, "paras hgss", "lugia gs", "chandel bw", "treek rs", "trev x" to try it out!
    This will set the game to whatever you choose in the search, so it's a faster and even more intuitive way to browse pokeforest.io than before! :) The selected game will be saved for continued use, just like when you press the buttons in the game selection button screen at the top, in other words:)
    Of course, this words well with the autocomplete-nature of the search - you don't have to type the full name and all as usual! Enjoy.
  • The Random Pokémon feature on the site has had an improvement: it will now give you a random Pokémon within the game you have selected, as opposed to just any random Pokémon from any game! For example, you won't get Chandelure as a random Pokémon when you have R/B selected. If you do have Red & Blue loaded, you will always get a random Pokémon from Kanto! Cool right? :) This adds to the Global Game Selector feature to make it more intuitive. Hope you enjoy that! :)
  • Minor Color theme and Design updates
Update X - June 7th, 2020
  • Improvement: Type defenses data now is sorted from 4X to 2X weak systematically. Before, it wouldn't necessarily 4X weaknesses first. Now it will :)
  • Sized down the Galar sprites just a little bit: I thought they were slightly too large, look a bit sharper now :-) So yeah, that's enjoyable
  • A few fixes
Pokémon just wanna have fun update - May 8th, 2020

  • Added 'Sky Battle Eligible' field when displaying data for Generation 6 games, so X & Y or OR/AS, in the Competitive section at the Pokédex pages.
  • Added a nifty, handy awesome lil' shortcut to pokeforest.io: Press the 'G' key on your keyboard to toggle the game selection screen/modal from anywhere! :D
  • If the Pokédex entries in the currently selected versions are the same, it will now display "Version 1 & Version 2" (i.e. "Diamond & Pearl") in one line / button, instead of two 'duplicate' entries :) Enjoy that very much
    The Pokédex Entries section has also been improved so it looks better! :)

  • In Generation 1 games, the Pokédex now displays more accurate tooltips (when hovering over the Pokémon's sprites, to indicate colored and uncolored sprites of the Pokémon. Shinies were introduced in generation 2, and my goal is for the Pokédex to be true to the game :) It also doesn't display the little shiny star for the uncolored sprite anymore. Hope you enjoy that :)
  • The Alpha Dark theme has had an update, and looks prettier now. Go check it out at the customize page!! :D

  • The Region Pokédexes now don't show animated sprites for the Pokémon, but the Pokédex pages still do in Generation 6 and 7 games. This will significantly reduce data costs and loading times when loading a region :) It also looks really funny when you load a Pokémon from a region and it starts moving :) Turns alive, you know?
  • Added a features documentation to describe and explain some of the site's features :)
  • Slight UI improvements

Stereo Speaker Heatran and Subwoofer-Dubwool's update - 2020! :D HAPPY NEW YEARZ
  • When you click on the Breeding Moves to see what they do in the Pokédex page, you can now find a "See breeding partners" button. If you click on it, you'll see the Pokémon that the Pokémon you're viewing can breed with to get that move, and if you hover over the Pokémon you see in the popup'd list, you'll see what level they learn the desired move at in the game you have selected. Nifty!
    The Breeding parents are of course sorted by what level they learn the move for your convenience. :)
  • YOU CAN NOW SEE SPRITES FOR THE EXACT GAME YOU HAVE CHOSUUUUN! :) It doesn't show the sprites for the first game in the generation anymore, to save data costs for mobile users, but just shows the sprites from the game you clicked on!

  • Various fixes. You know, the good stuff. :)
Happy new year update!! - End of 2019

Lemur's daily Pokeforest Update - November 30, 2019
  • Added some new move colors
  • A few tweaks!
"Looking to protect yourself, or deal some damage?" - Ulbearth War-Bear (Skyrim) Update - November 25, 2019
  • ADDED GALAR REGION POKEMAN :-)
  • Added logo!
  • I don't remember what else I did lol :D
Forest Bear's update - November 12, 2019
  • Vastly improved search bar: nice, intuitive and responsive search bar right at the start page. It's also tolerant to typos, so if you wanna find a Pokémon you can't quite remember how to spell, say, Dhelmise, if you type Delmise, (that is, omitting the "h" after the first "D"), it'll still show up. It's actually more tolerant than that, so for example "prsa" will still find Paras for ya. :)
    But don't take my word for it, check it out yourself and see what you think!! :)
  • Linkable forms: You can now link to Pokémons forms to directly load a Pokémon's any alternate form when you visit the link. So, pokeforest.io/pokedex/aegislash/blade, pokeforest.io/pokedex/deoxys/speed and pokeforest.io/ray/mega all do what you'd expect ( with that last one being auto-matched to Rayquaza ;) ).
  • Added a new (light) color theme, Forest Walk. :)
  • Added a new move color, called Nighstky
  • Fixed quirky modal (the popup screen) behavior in the Safari browser
  • Speed improvements, both in UI and page loading times :)
  • Various fixes
Duck's update - November 2, 2019
  • Add location data. Right now it only shows the locations the Pokémon is found in, but this will be greatly improved in an update. :)
  • Pokeforest.io will now not show hidden abilities if you're viewing data for a game earlier than Pokémon Black and White, since there were no hidden abilities before that.
  • Improved graphics performance, with the modals/popup-screens especially
  • Added new color for moves, Raspberry. :)
  • Minor graphical fixes
Pokétoberfest - October X, 2019
  • GALAR POKEMANZ! :D :D Check it out!
  • Upon switching forms for a Pokémon, it'll now show what form you're viewing in a better way.
  • Improved Firefox support, less lag. :)
  • Fixed cookie notice screen popping up even after clicking "Got it"
Nice stuff :D - September 22, 2019
  • You can now choose the color for the move you clicked on in the Pokédex! Currently, you can choose between these pretty colors: Sea, Sun, Blossom, and Mint. Also Cloud. Check it out at the settings page! :) Also, these colors will only show up when using the lightmode because of their, well, colorful nature.
  • NEW COLOR THEME YAAS! :D - A darkmode with red and turquoise-green colors. Check it out for nice Team Rocket hideout feel!!
Various improvements - September 7, 2019
  • Old cries! - Pokeforest.io now plays the original pre-generation 6 cries when you have a, well, pre-generation 6 game selected! Check it out :)
  • You can now click on abilites to see what they do!
  • Added Romaji text next to Japanese name (Romanized Japanese). Although, Pokémon from generation 5 to 7 won't show this data for now as it's not in our system, so bear with us on that.
  • Forms introduced later than the game you're viewing won't show up, so megas without a sprite won't show up and give you trouble if you're viewing your Diamond and Pearl data, for exmaple. :)
    This also includes Mega Evolutions introduced in OR/AS - they won't show up if you're viewing X/Y data. Just a heads up there :)
  • Switching between forms should now be a bit more responsive.
  • Now, when you click on Save on the Settings page, it will take you back to the page you were when you clicked on settings, not the main page.
    Yeah, that was bothering me too. :)
Generational update - August 21, 2019
  • The very anticipated update: Pokéforest will now show sprites based on the generation of the game you're viewing! If you're viewing data for Pokémon Gold & Silver, you'll see Gold & Silver sprites, and if you're viewing Pokémon Emerald data, it'll show you sprites for the first game in that generation, Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire, and so on! The reason for not showing sprites for the exact game you have active is for saving data costs, mainly.
  • The game button will now show the game you're on, even if you haven't clicked it. :)
  • Pokéforest now shows default data for the Pokémon you view if you've selected a game earlier than the Pokémon was discovered in.
  • If you're viewing data for a game earlier than generation 4 (so FireRed / LeafGreen and earlier), all Pokémon's learned moves will now show the correct category (physical, special and status) that these games had, since moves in these games were not physical/special based on the individual move, but each type was always either special or physical. For example, all Ghost-type moves were physical, and all fire moves were special. Status moves were just, status moves. :)
Darkmode update - August 9, 2019
  • Added darkmode! :D And a settings button at the bottom of each page to turn it on :)
Initial launch, August 6, 2019
  • Pokeforest.io is online and viewable on the Internet after initially starting development in January 2018. The site was re-made a number of times from scratch before seeing the light here on the web. Quite the journey! :)
