Well.. this is pretty awesome. Great job!

BTW, are you sure you fixed the part where you get an extra pokeball if an action happens to an already fainted pokemon? I also got that same error at turn 5: A lulzy ru battle

I've introduced animated sprites. Some pokemon don't actually have animated sprites, and very few have back sprites... :| So they'll sort of be "mixed in".

If you guys want animated back sprites, go make them. <_<

Well, I mean, I fixed it when drain happens to an already fainted pokemon. Now I fixed it for gems and most other things, too, but I can't guarantee it'll be fixed for every action.

about the porygon2 issue:

(note: this battle is from a time where I was really noobish xD)

Anyway, I'm really glad to be able to help
Fixed.

Here's the battle with the white herb. My gorebyss uses it. It says the white herb isn't recognized, and so the negative defense stats remain on screen. turn 20.
Fixed.

Oh, I don't know much about programming >.> Sorry if I sounded, you know, too condescending. I just thought that all of those would be put into a single code. As other people already said, this is fantastic work.

This is amazing, best thing since Obi's pokemon AI. The only thing I can recommend is displaying a percentage over the HP bar. The huge amount of effort and detail really shows, job very well done.

Out of curiosity, what language did you use?

Heh, no worries, I didn't take it in a condescending way.

By the way, I like how your pokemon are named like in Pokemon Special. ^^

I see you're using the praise-feedback-praise sandwich. ;)

Amusingly enough, while most of the other things I haven't done are coding issues, the reason there's no HP bar percentage yet is for design reasons: I haven't thought of a good place to put it where it doesn't look ugly.

Out of curiosity, what language did you use?
JavaScript (jQuery) for the graphics engine, and PHP for the converter. The graphics engine is some pretty nice code (although not very commented), and the converter is the worse spaghetti you'll ever see.

Here's what the converter looks like:

http://aesoft.org/pokemon/converter.src.php

And here's what the graphics engine looks like:

http://aesoft.org/pokemon/battle.js

If you click "convert again" under a replay, you can see what the converter looks like in action.

I don't know if someone has said this already, but Healing Wish and Lunar Dance don't restore properly. It only shows restoring 50% HP, when it should be all.
Again, when reporting bugs, please link to a replay that experiences them.

Because of that, I'm lead to believe that Wish itself may only show healing 50% HP, rather than 50% of the Wisher's HP
That's true, but that's because PO replays don't store information such as the Wisher's HP.

I've been talking to coyotte, the creator of PO, and the next version of PO (will be released in a few days) will have replays with that kind of information.

Here's a test game played using a prerelease version: http://aesoft.org/pokemon/replay-Stormclouds-vs-aeo--2011-08-18

It has more accurate recoil values.

Maybe heighten the HP bars and add text with an outline?

Wow, that actually looks pretty nice.

I doesn't look like it fits the rest of my design, though. :/

I added HP a different way. Do you like it? I'm not entirely satisfied with it, so I'm quite open to suggestions.

At first I was apprehensive about animated Pokemon spirtes, but that demo sealed it - animated sprites are good shit.

I was pleasantly surprised when Darmanitan's back-sprites were moving :d

Thanks, aeo.
I got my animated sprites from Arkeis. I'm going to run gifsicle on them to make sure they run at the same speed on all browsers (and probably slow them down) as soon as I can.

Arkeis's site is also the only place I've found back sprites. He didn't have a "download all sprites" button, so I just grabbed some OU pokemon and some other pokemon I recognized and uploaded them:

http://aesoft.org/pokemon/sprites/bwbackani/

If anyone has a more complete collection of back sprites, that'd be great.

I like where you put the HP, it fits nicely and is easy to see. The only thing I'd change is make the text shadow offset "1px 1px" instead of "1px -1px" to make it more cohesive with the rest of the design (imagining the light source is at the top of the page).

I tried uploading a log of two other people playing (not myself) and this message came up:

"Error: Replay file must an English Pokemon Online replay file."

Help?

That's the error message I give when there's no line that says:

"Battle between <A> and <B> started!"

Could you upload your replay somewhere? Megaupload, perhaps?
