    Default Advent Calendar 2014!

    I've loved the Advent Calendar on this site for the last 8 years or so and once again I am glad to see it back

    So what do you think of this weeks stuff? I found the Zinnia and Steven avatars kinda cool but the Rayquaza was a little dull looking ... Cross word wasn't too much trouble, only had to google clues 18 & 20 but they always start off easy. P.S. let me know if you want extra hints for the clues and I'll message you

    Only one on the crossword I needed help with was #15. Glad to see the Advent Calendar back, I've always loved that feature.

    I always really like the backgrounds that one can download. I prefer, however, when it's solely Pokemon in the pictures though. I'm not much of a fan of the human characters.

    Oh hey, we have a solve button now. I guess our yearly advent calendar solutions are obsolete now...

    However cryptic, so far nothing has beaten the final wordfit from back at 2009... or was it 2010? In terms of difficulty.

    Every word has 6 letters and there was only one with 7, located at the bottom.

    this looks so misalligned and checker always says 2 random pieces are in wrong place even if they are correctly placed please fix, also it seems this problem only occurs on IE browser the puzzle works and looks perfectly fine on chrome

    That Delta Ep background looks pretty epic! I just wish Serebii had an option for Galaxy S4 as a background choice. The iPhone option doesn't make it fit perfectly on my phone. Does anyone know how to resize it?

    That being said, the Flygon avatars look epic. Thanks for recognizing arguably my favorite Pokémon, Serebii! I'll definitely use those.

    Well I felt Flygon needed some focus since it wasn't gifted with a Mega Evolution

    You're right, especially since Flygon's Hoenn brothers, Altaria & Salamence got one and there is a semi notable NPC with a Flygon.

    So today's puzzle was kinda annoying, 11 down was "it has two effects"[spoiler] the only other clue was that it started with "R" and there are tons of moves and items that could fit there, rock smash, rock climb, relic song, razor claw, razor fang etc. I guessed about a dozen that were equally correct before it.

    Vague clues are fine, but there should be one right answer or its just a random guessing game. Still a couple of questions like that are banned to happen once every hundered clues.

    Hey, it would be really cool if you could upload the avatars from the calendar of SPPF as selectable avatars.

    For the past several years that festive lights wallpaper has been up on the 24th, but the iPhone link has always been broken. Maybe it's time to fix that?

    I'm honestly not sure why. I've checked on my end and it works fine locally, and I've reuploaded.
