    Question Why can't I right-click on the site?

    Is there any particular reason why I can here, but not on the actual site? It's gotten me quite curious.

    As stated above, it's to help prevent artwork and stuff from being stolen.

    BTW, I could right-click on Serebii.net when I used Opera.

    To stop doing what? Prevent right-clicking? I can screen grab anyway.

    lawl.

    It's to protect people from stealing the info on the site easily. Although, anybody trying to steal that has a brain would just hit "Print Screen" on their keyboard to steal art, and click "View" and then "View Source" to take text.

    Or, you know, use a non-shitty browser.

    Then again, this is pretty much just a blockade against the biggest retards out there anyway, so it's effective enough.

    But Joe, people on the Opera browser have no trouble at all, as in 0, simply Copy Pasting from the site.

    Firefox and a few others have to highlight etcetera, and then some images have a black background, etc....

    Lawl, but please allow us to right click in IV calculators, it makes it easier to copy paste you information there.

    Is it worth pissing off legitimate visitors? The majority of sites that would copy information so blatantly don't receive visitors, and webmasters of sites that receive visitors will know how to steal your information anyway. Your solution to the problem is pretty lose/lose
    [20:54:24] Serebii: switching is cheap
    [20:54:42] Serebii: its as cheap as ubers

    95% of Serebii.net does not understand competitive battling. If you're one of the 5% that do, then don't waste your time putting this in your sig - head straight to Smogon.

    Remember, Serebii loves you

    I like how it makes people wonder if their mouse is broken.
