Today, we've partnered up with the Facebook group Pokemon Battling Community (now PokeDS Battling Community), a very active group for people who love competitive battling to share their knowledge and for newbies to learn the ropes by receiving help from more experienced battlers.

From the group's description:

Looking for a small friendly competitive Pokemon battling community? Well then this place for you! It doesn't matter whether or not you're someone who just started yesterday - we're here to help, or if you're a veteran of many hard fought battles - please share your knowledge with us by helping out people with their difficult Pokemon related problems and even revising and contributing to our documents.

The group is well-maintained by a group of admins, which includes our very own Lohrak, and also have worked together to write documents to help newbies learn competitive battling, such as their Competitive Battling Basics Guide. So if you're interested in joining an active Facebook group about competitive battling, check them out!

Otherwise, be sure to welcome any new members to PokeDS from the group. This partnership will only help to grow both communities, I think. So until later, see you guys around PokeDS! (or PokeDS Battling Community!)

I hope keeping up with all the Black and White 2 news has been keeping you guys on your toes! And Pokemon Conquest for the US! All in all, it's been a pretty lively week for the Pokemon world, and for PokeDS.. Well, things are only going to get more exciting here. :D

Those of you who've been keeping up in the chat know that I had been working on a Damage Calculator. It's still a work in progress because I need to go and implement all the abilities and items that affect moves, and I'll probably also add additional features like entering custom base stats or moves power factors.

But for now, the calculator mostly works and you can go ahead and try it and see if it's something you'd be interested in using. (And make suggestions on improvements to it! Suggestions are always welcome on PokeDS.)

And in other news, I made a coloring pages section based on the linearts for our Original Artwork set project. If you're artistic, feel free to color away at these as you wish! Otherwise, I've been looking back at the old PokeDS and thinking about features I still need to transfer over here. I started working on a new version of the poll script, and I'll probably try to get the fun section with all its trivia and mad-lib goodness back here sometime soon.

So until later, enjoy the site (and the new games if you're playing those). Toodles!

So for past week or two, a few things have been added around PokeDS once again. For example, you can now add friend codes to your profile, a feature suggested by lohrak, which I hope will make networking with Pokemon Wi-Fi on PokeDS a little easier in the future!

Furthermore, I've been working a bit at the galleries, and you can now view art by the Pokemon featured in them. While currently we certainly don't have art for every Pokemon, I've also been sketching and drawing away to try to help fill up the Pokemon gallery sections! I'm also trying to add Artdex Mode soon where it should be easier to view which Pokemon have art and how much.

Any lastly, I'd like to say that lohrak has joined PokeDS as a writer and he's been rocking it out in the game guides section! lohrak is an awesome dude who loves Pokemon a lot, so give him a round for the help he's been giving around PokeDS!

So it's been a while since you've heard from me in the news department, but I've certainly been working away at some features!

Some small things include the latest activity stream for user profile pages, also including profile comments... Which most of you guys already got a taste of from me a few days back haha!

In addition to that, thanks to the awesome Xavier, we now have galleries! So feel free to browse some art and submit your own. Our galleries here are unlike most galleries in that it automatically searches for Pokemon names in tags and indexes artwork based on the Pokemon that appear in it. Later, we'll be taking advantage of this feature to make Project Artdex where we categorize art submissions based on the Pokemon appearing in them and more.

Finally, to make it easier for you to keep up with the community here, I've added a new option for the main page: User Activity. Just click on the "Activity" tab on PokeDS home, and you'll be set to see a feed of all the latest things added on the site by users!

Enjoy the new features and see you guys all around the site!
