    I was thinking that if Pokemon Online are going to have a lot of changes, instead of having us download them, wouldn't it be easier to host it online? That way, we could have accounts, saving our team instead of having to delete them when we switch. Also, it would make your jobs easier in banning people, since the account would be banned, and not just the username, because anyone could just switch their username to become unbanned. It's also called Pokemon Online. Not downloading a file and playing online, plus, I can use it over many computers.

    Also, for the Pokemon search on the Pokedex, would it be possible to find Pokemon within a range of base stats. There are many times I would want to find Pokemon with a base speed of 60<x<100, for example, but it would be a lot of work finding Pokemon like that. Could you also serch Pokemon by tiers too? I always want to search Pokemon by OU, UU, stuff like that.

    Well Hosting PO Online without a download would be dumb (to me.) Also you don't have to delete your Team when you make a new one, just make a new file. :\ Also when someone bans someone they cannot just come on with a different name and be unbanned. When you get banned, it bans your I.P Address. Not just your name.

    The Pokedex in Pokemon Online is unfortunately low priority coding, and no current devs have plans to improve it (as there are lots of Pokedexes on the Internet).

    Also, if Pokemon Online was a web based program (as Pokemon Shotdown is), you would have to download it every time your browser cache expires or the file is changed remotely. Of course, this is efficient, because you only download the parts you are using instead of all trainer sprites / themes / pokemon sprites included in PO download.

    Anyway, for the "online" part, that would be a complete different program written in completely different language, and hence it is not interesting for the project.

    The problem is… cache cannot guarantee anything. Usually there is a limit on the amount of MBs it takes on disk space, therefore if you visit many sites… :}
