11/29/13: More type chart tweaks
It seems I just can't stop tinkering with the Interactive Type Chart. I'm sure you're all tired of hearing about it by now and just want me to make some personality tests, but I added a bit of hovering functionality - if you hover over the name of a type either on the left side or the top, the corresponding row/column will be highlighted, and if you hover over an individual cell it will be highlighted along with the type names heading both its row and column. This should make it easier to make sure at a glance that you're looking at the correct cell. This looked smoother with the table borders collapsed, which really makes the chart look cleaner overall, so I did that as well. Finally, I also added four more dropdowns for attack types in moveset coverage mode, in case you want to examine coverage for multiple Pokémon with more than four types of attacks total.
UPDATE EDIT: Because I am a nerd, I also edited it to consistently pluralize correctly (so it will say "1 type", but "2 types").
I just made the Interactive Type Chart a bit more mobile- and otherwise small-window-friendly, or attempted to at any rate - in smaller browser windows it will now move the options to the top so the type chart itself can take up all the available horizontal space, and on even smaller devices the font size will become smaller on the chart itself so it can better fit within the window. Feedback from somebody who actually browses the site on a mobile device would be much appreciated - I don't have a smartphone or a tablet so I can't really get a decent idea for myself of how this works out in practice.
11/16/13: More X/Y updates, plus new type chart mode
Additionally, I added a new mode to the Interactive Type Chart: "filtered simple mode", which shows a chart of type effectiveness for combos with some given type. This offers a better way than before to get an overview of all of a particular Pokémon's weaknesses, resistances and immunities: switch to filtered simple mode, filter by its first type, then look down its second type's column. It also lets you easily look for, say, Fairy combinations that resist or are immune to Steel.
11/04/13: Inverse Battle chart
I've added the Gen VI inverse type chart - that is, the type chart used in Inverse Battles in X and Y - as a base chart in the Interactive Type Chart. Hopefully you'll find it helpful.
11/02/13: Eleven Years
Happy birthday, dear site,
Let's celebrate tonight.
Eleven years since you got here
- and the future looks bright.
The Cave of Dragonflies is eleven years old today. Whoohoo! I'm afraid I don't have a proper update, because I only just updated a couple of days ago and haven't finished anything of note since (see the Old Updates). But I'm still working on more X/Y updates. I'm prioritizing getting existing content up-to-date before making new stuff, so unfortunately the Zodiac will have to wait a bit, but I will get to that too.
The Almighty Random Poll
So! The sixth generation is upon us.
The Site Poll
Let's do this again. Given these are things I want to do, which of them should I do first?
