An index of Pokémon, built as a client-side JavaScript webapp. Powered by ServiceWorker, PouchDB, virtual-dom, and web workers.

See the Introducing blog post for details on the architecture.


First, be sure to install dependencies:

npm install

Then start a dev server on localhost:9000:

npm run serve

To disable ServiceWorker:

NODE_ENV=testing npm run serve


npm run build

This will write files to www/.

Bumping the ServiceWorker version

The ServiceWorker version is tied to the package.json version. So you can bump it by simply doing:

npm version patch

Building up the database via PokéAPI

Note: you don't need to build up the database to start developing; these are just steps to generate the database files (src/assets/*.txt) from scratch.

This site uses data provided by PokéAPI. To build up the database, you'll need to run:

./node_modules/.bin/babel-node bin/build-monsters-database.js
./node_modules/.bin/babel-node bin/build-descriptions-database.js
./node_modules/.bin/babel-node ... # there are several of these

Some of the build scripts pull from src/js/shared/data (which contains some files that I had to build myself by scraping Bulbapedia), whereas the main ones pull from the live PokeAPI. (I never got the local PokeAPI working correctly, so I just pulled from the remote.)


You can add ?highPerfAnims=1 to the URL to force high-performance animations to run. (Normally they are disabled for Firefox and Android <5.)


Thanks to PokeAPI and Bulbapedia for the Pokémon data, and of course to Nintendo, Game Freak, and The Pokémon Company for making such an awesome series of games.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
