This is indeed more helpful than what we used to have. :D

But I wonder... would it have been possible to generate actual breeding chains and report them to the user on the details page instead? Like, form a query when they hit the details link for THAT Pokemon, and what pops up are possible breeding chains that will lead to the desired result. It's something to think about, although I don't know how hardcoded your details pages are as they are now (I should hope not at all). You could use what you've already collected to generate the chains yourself if you so chose. :p It'd be more work, and it'd add more processing time to the requests, but I think it'd be worth it, myself.

Well the issue I have with that is, despite everything being PHP based, to conserve server usage and requests etc it creates the static pages that are always there

I'm trying to avoid having the site too dynamic as it'd kill the already dying servers...the sites too big for one server

I just looked up Sneasel for an example since probably the most common breeding question (with respect to egg moves) is how to get Ice Punch and Pursuit on it.

Are there plans of tying this in with the 3rd Gen. Dex? Because I know Aipom and Zangoose can get both moves in the 3rd Gen.

Yeah, there should be an additional category for Pokemon who learn the desired move through 3rd. gen means (move tutors, R/S/E/FR/LG level up, and XD purification moves and move tutors. I didn't mention Pokemon Box Pokemon because 1; Swablu's False Swipe is now a TM move. 2; Nothing has Skitty's Pay Day as an egg move. 3; Nothing has Zigzagoon's Extremespeed as an egg move. 4; Pichu's Surf is an HM move. 5; Gardevoir learns Wish naturally now. (Wish Ralts WAS what took the place of Surfing Pichu in the jap. Box, right?)

Sorry if this is off-topic but I wouldn't know where else to put it......
Whatup with the SerebiiBot thing? IS this your doing, Serebii? Or is it a genuine user? Just concerned for security sake.

It's his bot; it posts news here whenever he adds something to the site.

Also, thanks for the alphabetical dex option Serebii. It's extremely helpful.
