Hey Serebii, could you put a subfolder on the Alola section of Pokearth? It may help to have some option to either look at the region as a whole, or as one region (i.e. Melemele Island)?
FYI: You did something similar to the Sevii Islands, but I was thinking of more of a toggle switch this round.

The Official Alola Region Strategy Guide says that while riding Stoutland, one is only about half as likely to encounter wild Pokémon(p 96).
Edit: Looked up the other Ride Pokemon in the guide.
(p 78 & 102)While riding Tauros and Lapras, wild encounters are about half as likely.
(p 158)While riding Mudsdale, wild encounters are 1/3 less likely.
(p167) While riding Sharpedo, wild encounters are 2/3 less likely.
(p 194) Machamp doesn't affect wild encounter rate.

Could we maybe by chance get a page on "Favors" in Alola, i.e. those people who want us to catch a certain Pokemon for them who will pay us for our trouble? I know of the Cutiefly lady in the Pokemon Center on Route 3, the Rockruff man next to the gate between Routes 1 and 3, the Drifloon Beauty in the Po9kemon Center on Route 2(?), the Feebas Scientist in the Pokemon Center on Route 5, the Pyukumuku Gentleman in the Boutique in Heahea City, there's one for Mimikyu (that *I* haven't found yet... / ), and maybe there's *ONE* other, I'm not sure), but to my estimation it would help to codify them.
The Drifloon Beauty gives you 10,000 P, the Cutiefly lady gives you 3,000 and as for the rest, I don't recall with certainty, but I *BELIEVE* the Rockruff was 1,000 P and the Pyukumuku was 2,000 P. I have not caught a Feebas nor as I've said found the Mimikyu NPC yet, so those amounts remain as yet unknown to me.
There's two possible updates that might be worthwhile
firstly a section on the 'hidden' z' stones like Psychium Z given they are obtained somewhat differently than the ones from trials.
Also in relation to the pokemon specific z moves (eg Malicious Moonsault) on their attackdex perhaps it would benefit from showing the move that can be used to activate them as well
( eg Darkest Lariat).
perhaps add a drop down menu on the attackdex page specifically for z-moves
I know they aren't compatible yet, but when you do Pokemon of the Week, could you show a Pokemon's location in Gold, Silver and Crystal?

Serebii- If I may suggest:
I was looking at your comprehensive EV Mechanics Guide (which I am finding extremely useful, thank you).
However- looking at your suggested defense ev location- you recommend s.o.s battles against Geodudes on route 12.
Geodudes can self-destruct at that level, potentially disrupting the battle
I suggest s.o.s battles against Roggenrolas on ten carat hill. Same ev yeild, slightly lower encounter rate (30% as opposed to geodudes 40%) and no self- destruct.
My 3ds Friend Code:
I have Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Pokemon X, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Mario Kart 7, Super Smash Bros. For 3ds, Bravely Default, Luigi's Mansion 2 and Steel Diver: Sub Wars Premium for Multiplayer. Add me if you wish.
Not sure if this is right but I think Hano Beach respawns hidden items. I just found a Pearl between the four umbrellas just south of the Pyukumyuku chucker guy and a Heart Scale upshore by the Staryu/Sandygast feel free to check this out for yourselves
Edit: note I have found other hidden items in those same spots before
I think the site should have a more in-depth Z-move page where all available moves are listed.
Fairy Z Moves
100 Base Power Only
Disarming Voice (Special)
Draining Kiss (Special)
Fairy Wind (Special)
Nature’s Madness (Special)
Dazzling Gleam (160 Special)
Moonblast (175 Special)
Play Rough (175 Physical)
Fleur Cannon (195 Special)
Light of Ruin (200 Special)
Special Z Crystal
Guardian of Alola (75% of Target’s HP)
Baby Doll Eyes (Defense 1 stage)
Charm (Defense 1 stage)
Fairy Lock (Defense 1 Stage)
Flower Shield (Defense 1 Stage)
Sweet Kiss (Special Attack 1 Stage)
Crafty Shield (Special Defense 1 stage)
Misty Terrain (Special Defense 1 Stage)
Aromatic Mist (Special Defense 2 stages)
Geomancy (All stats 1 Stage)
Floral Healing (Reset stats)
Moonlight (Reset stats)
I don't know how you would formulate the algorithm for this, but this is what I had in mind.

kindly make a page which gives data abut the best nature for each pokemon, the preferred stats to be ev trained, it will be very helpful for games..
On the page about EVs, where it suggests the best place to train a particular EV, the recycling plant in SM is suggested as the best spot to train the HP EV by SOS chaining Muks. I tried it, and quickly realized that having to use antidotes and healing items all the time against the Muks' poison was quickly gonna be a pain. I prefer to SOS chain Caterpies, and even though I have to flee if a Butterfree pops up, it's still better than being poisoned all the time. However, if you're doing this with something that's immune to poison, then that location would be the best. So, maybe add SOS chaining Caterpies on Route 5 to that suggestion, alongside the existing one?
Edit: Scratch that, SOS chaining Bounsweets is far superior. They never call anything else except more Bounsweets. Plus, no poison.
Edit 2: Uhh, actually, turns out Route 1 has Caterpies as well, and these only call other Caterpies. So maybe that'd be the prime spot? Route 1? I think it has to be at night, though.
Yes, I'm EV training right now.

You might consider upgrading the AttackDex so that egg groups are included for the individual pokemon listings. Would save the trouble of having to click into each pokemon to see egg group when attempting to breed egg moves.
