I know that nowadays many people, especially the younger ones, are “mobile only”, but this idea is for those who still have a PC or a laptop and appreciate its possibilities (easier typing, bigger screen, easier switching from/to other programs or websites…), or who are just as old-fashioned as me…
I’d love to see some kind of (Niantic-official of course, I know there are such 3rd party sites!) storage management via a website. One could log in with the PoGo account and browse one’s Pokémon storage and maybe item storage, too.
It wouldn’t need too much functionality.
- Browse, search, filter, star and unstar
- applying rare candy and TMs
- maybe powering up
- building battle parties (for this, battle parties must be saved on the server instead of the device, though)
all those things that don’t require you to walk around or even have any kind of location and that won’t bring XP, whereas evolving would not be possible (we all know Niantic wouldn’t want us to evolve 1000 mons within one Lucky Egg…)
There could also be a nice detail page for every Pokémon that shows the in-game details + its team leader appraisal (of course we’d all prefer the real IVs but, again, this must be Niantic compatible…) in a way that doesn’t need scrolling and tapping.
It might not be a feature everyone would use constantly, but it would make the big purge sessions after Community Days and other grinds a lot easier, as well as building one’s battle parties for the next new raid bosses,… And it would make it easier to manage bigger bags, you know… 2000 and up
