    Hi guys. I started making this theme a long time ago and eventually abandoned it. I see that theme section is pretty much dead and PO is much less active than it used to be. I am saddened by the state of the simulator. The theme is not complete yet. Please make your suggestions for the final cut.

    Aims and Features

    • Make PO interface better. Current default theme is too bland.
    • Focus on readability. Most themes have difficult to read text. This theme has bigger font sizes with newer modern font families.
    • Make theme easy on eyes. Balance between decoration and usability has been aimed.
    • To match aesthetics of Pokemon Sun without sacrificing UI.
    • New type buttons have been added
    • Old School buttons now look better with distinct states for hover and pressed.

    Trainer Menu

    New icons added and team buttons fixed.

    Damage Calculator

    Damage calculator is quite boring so I decided to make it a little fun. Now you can clearly see opponent vs user pokemon.

    Battle window is probably the most difficult thing to style. Give your suggestions.

    I'm sad to see PO has very low interest, but i really love your art style and I think your theme should be applied by default in next updates, just to see some "refresh" to the simulator, it would be a good idea!

    Hi, thanks for your appreciation. I was legit thinking that no one liked it. I was not really motivated to complete it. If you need this then tell me I'll make it a little cleaner and upload it.

    Hey guys I have a question. Would it be okay to use Muli font? I really like this font and it fits the theme well. However it's 'a' is not usual and might make it hard to read. May I have some suggestions?

    Hi! I think Muli font can be good, maybe you can show us some screenshot just to see if it fits with PO =)

    Hey bud here's the pic.

    I'm actually concerned about readability because of the different lowercase a. I'll post if I find a similar font but with normal 'a'.

    Wow I love it!! The colors! What a great job!
    I think the "a" is still readable and the font is a pleasure for my eyes.
    Very good. I wait for it to be released =)

    Great work again! I prefer the old server choice menu, I don't like Solgaleo there, it's more "natural" without it =)
    Also the box graphic is good too, but I think the squares of pokemon in team are too big, for the rest it's perfect to me.
    The colors choice is just awesome!

    I Think you have confused the forums with simulator. Just go to web.pokemon-online.eu
    This time use another username like Blue charizard or some other name that has not been taken

    --- Post updated ---
    I'll PM you because this is my theme thread and for discussion of theme mostly.

    --- Post updated ---
    Ok thanks I'll remove the Solgaloe and use the older image. I have added new images please check them.

    Seriously, I've never seen a better theme than this one! I'm very happy and excited!!
    I can be repetitive but I really like it, those colors, the HP and time bars, the Mega and Z buttons...when can we have this theme? =)
    I can suggest, the last thing to do is add custom battle backgrounds, can be found on deviantart (with credits to the maker).

    Off topic: I replaced pokémon sprites with pokémon images from dream world and I think they are way better (I don't like 3d models), there are also the shiny form on deviantart.

    Excellent theme, certainly one of the better ones I've seen during my time on PO.
    Keep up the good work!

    3D models did not do justice to some Pokemon. Sometimes colors are too bland. BW and Platinum sprites were my favorite.

    Ok I tried it and I can say it's very good and a pleasure to see.

    I suggest just few changes:

    - the "NewPokeBar" image (where the Pokémon name is displayed in battle) should be a different color (green?) or at least a different shape.

    - the HP bar colors (green, yellow, red) are a bit weak, they need more saturation.
    I tried to change the HP background to black and it's a good contrast, though the HP numbers must change to white to be seen.

    Let me know and thank you!

    Well I must say this is probably one of the best (if not the best) themes I have ever seen during my time in PO. It's so full of colors and details, everything is fully readable and well organized, the font is great, resolution on Pokéball icons aswell, Battle Window looking good (cept for details mentioned by Pumone). This is truly impressive.

    BUT, there's one thing I noticed that concerns me, hopefully you are able to fix this up. Not quite sure if its because of my resolution (which I highly doubt), but when it comes to channel tabs, they are not fully shown which sort of takes out the beauty of the display http://prntscr.com/gbf7sy . I am not sure why this happens, maybe you know? It also happens with the "Players, Channels, Battles" thingy.

    Also is it possible that you can sort of change the color the channel text gets when a new message is sent? I kind of get confused since when you click on a channel the text turns green, and that's exact the same color as when someone sends a new message so its quite confusing.

    Anyways if you find a way to fix this up I'll highly appreciate it, but even if you don't, that's alright. Thank you very much for contributing to PO this way :)

    Hey sorry it was bad coding on my part. I fixed both the length issue and the color has been changed to purple. I have added the link in the main post. It fixes this issue.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried to fix the battle window as whole. Sadly PO does not allow background images in battle window. Changing color for HP bar is not allowed either. So it took some time to make this. See if it looks okay. I have added the link to download

    I can't try it until next week but the look is just amazing. Your theme gives PO a new fresh look. I hope PO will be great again like it was years ago. Thank you very much. If I will find anything to be fixed I will tell you here.

    Ok now I tried it, the health bar colors are great!! Until now the only "bug" I found is health bars not showing Pokémon names during double/triple battles.

    [​IMG]

    PS: I know the old battle window does not allow much editing, but does it allow to replace the background when weather conditions are active, just replacing the background png with another one? The same can be done with Hazards like spikes, sticky web etc...I know the new battle window has these functions, but I think the old one is just better for me.

    I Have figured pokemon name not appearing bug. It is due to a styling issue which will be fixed soon.
    About weather effects unfortunately I can't do anything at all. These are hardcoded and you need to recompile the whole PO to have effects. Secondly PO doesn't care much for old battle window. In fact old battle window hasn't been touched in past 2 years. All efforts are put into animated window and web client. Still I'll see if I can do something with client scripts.
