Porybox, an online Pokémon viewer and clone checker (now works with gen7!)


Recommended Posts

Hello Project Pokémon!

Here's a project the moderators of /r/pokemontrades have been working on as somewhat of a spiritual successor to Pokécheck of the old days: Porybox!

What can I do with Porybox?

In short, it does this. Also, this!

- Store and organize your collection online, with privacy settings you control. Options include private (visible only to you), public (freely downloadable by anyone), and viewable (basic details visible to anyone, but more sensitive ones such as PID hidden).

- See detailed information that is not immediately viewable in game such as IVs, EVs, and happiness.

- Share links to individual Pokémon or boxes of Pokémon you want to show to other people.

- Make Pokémon available for download, or download Pokémon other people have made public.

- Check to see if your Pokémon already exist as clones in the Porybox database.

Please note that the site is still under development, and should not be considered stable. If you experience any issues, please let us know.

Planned features

- Legality analysis

- Support for Pokémon files in pre-gen 6 format

- Site-wide search

- And more!

The project

Porybox is a free and open-source project with its source hosted on GitHub, and anyone can contribute to it.

We also have a dedicated subreddit (/r/porybox) and an IRC channel (#porybox on SynIRC) for discussion.


We would like to thank the following people and communities for their help, direct or indirect, in making Porybox happen:

See the credits.

You will recognize a lot of names from this forum. I cannot stress enough how useful your research was to the project. Thank you again!

Excellent application. Could I ask about some of the flags you've used?


this.hasHA = this.data.abilityNum === 4;

I noticed your example Porygon has abilityNum flag of 4 - could you go into detail about this abilityNumber flag and the possibilities it could have?

Your Porygon also has a memoryIntensity of 7 - I'd assumed that memoryIntensity ranged from 0 to 6 - which values have you found for this field and what combinations can it have?

I'm working on a converter website from Gen 1 to 6 and these two values I couldn't identify in your Porygon, assuming my implementation is wrong not yours :-)

Thanks keep up the good work!
