Member has a meaning that has existed long before the 60s attempt to turn it into a slang. That slang is seldom used to this day so doesn't warrant removalAre there a list of words that are banned to use on serebii? Curse words, etc? I can't believe that "member" is not there. can I see this list?
We do have a new possible person to help out. I'm hoping they fill the backlog to get info upI've been long time fan of this site since I was around 10 and I often come to this website as a kid because I know this is one of the best databases around when it comes to games, anime, manga, TCG. However I've also noticed that the site is not living up to it's reputation anymore as it's faltering behind in one huge area, the manga section. I understand that part of the problem is that Coronis isn't here anymore but when you are going to prioritize in updating the manga section, especially for some of the extremely outdated problems?
- The character bios's are quite frankly extremely outdated, over ten years outdated I think. I personally suggest that the section gets a new straightforward list like the one that the anime has as it will be easier to update with every new chapter. It's not the same as fan game sprites where Coronis put a lot of care and love into it but it will get updated faster this way.
- The detailed character bios are also outdated. It hasn't been updated since the BW2 chapter.
- The volume section is up to date for now but I suggest that there should be a section for mini-volumes of XY, ORAS and SMUSUM.
- I've noticed that the mangadex hasn't been updated for some while. For example, there's no Pokedex entry of Necrozma who has been making enough appearances recently.
That's fantastic news! However you did say possible person after all so there is no guarantees. Still I wish whoever this person is the best of luck if he or she gets the job. I'm not kidding about the manga section. The manga section is in dire need of updates.We do have a new possible person to help out. I'm hoping they fill the backlog to get info up
I'll see what I can do for a comprehensive search.Is there any way we could get a search function for the pokédex? Perhaps for the gen 8 dex? Like, if I want to look for a pokémon with base stats in a certain range (like Sp.Atk above 80), with a certain combination of moves, with resistances to this (or these) types, and with access to this ability, it'd show all pokémon that qualify for all the requirements.
I would, but it's a bit outdated. It doesn't seem to know certain combinations that are legal, like Feraligatr's Ice Punch (which isn't that obscure of a move for it, it's both tutor and egg move), Dragon Ascent on Rayquaza, Plasma Fists on Zeraora, and that's just what I'm finding now. There's probably more that's missing.
Huh that's odd. It was definitely updated with USUM. I'll look into it.I would, but it's a bit outdated.

Interesting stuff, I'll give it some thought. Still need to reorganise how the manga section is done so may tkae a whileI have another suggestion and I feel it would be much easier to future-proof the Pokemon Adventures character page for future admins who might want to take over if you created an entirely new template that didn't relied so much on consistent spritework. You should followed JoJo Bizarre Adventures wiki's example where the list of characters are categorized by pictures featuring each character's appearance from the manga.
Look at this template. It's easy to navigate, it features the artwork of each main character of how they originally were in their first appearances and it doesn't depend heavily on the consistency of fan-made spritework. Now imagine that for Pokemon Adventures.
Even pictures this small, you can still see a slight difference in the artstyle giving off a sense of history in Pokemon Adventures which is one thing I love about the JoJo framework where they don't use the newer modern artwork representing older characters but use older artwork, giving the JoJo series a sense of history and Pokemon Adventures is over 20 years full of history, from Mato's older hand-drawn gamey-like artstyle to Satoshi's more modern clearer anime-like artstyle. As a matter of fact, Coronis kind of did most of the work for you guys.
The circular borders featuring the Pokemon trainer's face would be a great start for such a framework only it's circles shaped like Pokeballs instead of rectangles like the pictures featured in the JoJo wiki page. It would be a cool little detail, have the circular bordered pictures line up like rows of Pokeballs and have a name underneath them stating who they are.
