DecDex data bot (ambitious idea but might work?)
« on: March 30, 2018, 08:08:39 am »
Would it be viable for us to extract Decamark data from the ROM and use a bot to import this data on to the wiki?

There are certain things that may be suitable for the bot, like the Decamark's base stats and starting moves, level-up moves.

Other things such as whether the Decamark freezes may be harder. However it may be better to have the incomplete data there than none at all?

If I remember rightly Koolboyman actually worked on a tool that extracted the data (and we already have Wack0's modified version of a tool for looking up Pokémon data in the ROM to look up Decamark data instead; Gen3ES was it?) however not sure if we still have the data on the Internet available in text form anymore.

Documenting so many Decamarks and/or glitch Pokémon as well may take up a lot of storage on the server (you have Ruby, FireRed, Emerald which is ((65536-386)*3)) glitch Pokémon).

Hi! I identify as female.  She/her pronouns, please.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪

Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.


I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

The issue with spirituality I feel is that people try to learn ideology, which while valid is not the whole picture and can lead to 'spiritual materialism' (masking), when a large component is that as children we're already our genuine selves or 'spiritual masters'.
