Hey everyone! We've got a handful of updates for you today:
We now have smilies from Pokemon Sword and Shield
Smilies have been added for all of the new Pokemon introduced in these games. As always, you can look at all of them and their codes from our smilies page. A few things to note:
  • Gigantamax forms can be used by putting "gmax" in front of the Pokemon's name. Ex: :gmaxpikachu:
  • Galarian forms can be used by putting "galarian" in front of the Pokemon's name. Ex: :galarianzigzagoon:
  • Alternate forms can be used by putting the form name after the Pokemon's name. Ex: :morpekohangry: (Some forms may be shortened to make them easier to type - check the smilies page if you're having trouble!)
  • Since Flapple and Appletun share a Gigantamax form, there wasn't really a point in adding the smilie twice. You can use it using the code :gmaxflappletun:
The Connectivity forums have a new Gen 8 tag
This tag can be used in both our trading and competitive battling forums.
The Big Brother and UCS forums have been archived
Due to Big Brother finishing and the Ultimate Character Showdown being on hiatus, their forums have been moved to the newly created Forum Events archive. Marriland Prom 2019 and Smash Camp 2019 have also been moved to that category, and future events that have their own subforum will be moved there after their conclusion as well.

Please let us know in this thread if you have any issues with using the new smilies, or if anything else seems wonky after these changes.

Yay nice work! Those smilies are definitely a time sink to put up, but it'll be worth. :polteageist:

Eyy, this is awesome! :inteleon::dragapult::eternatus: :toxtricity: :corviknight::grimmsnarl:

Quick question, will older gen Pokémon who were in Let's Go and SwSh have updated sprites to reflect the Gen 8 sprites?

If I remember correctly, staff talked about this briefly back when LGPE came out, and we decided to stick with the current sprites. If people want the updated sprites we definitely could do it (it would be pretty easy, all it'd entail is updating a few files), but it'd lead to weird inconsistencies when not all of the sprites have been updated to the new style. Granted, those inconsistencies exist between the Gen 8 Pokemon and the other generations (plus Meltan and Melmetal), but I feel like that's better than having inconsistencies throughout the Pokedex.

Oh, right. The differences are very clearly seen on the Rapidash. ._.
