My last suggestion is why not disable post count for Forum games section? Because that is the most casual forum where people can chill out.
Post count used to be disabled for that section. I don't remember why it was changed, but to be honest, I prefer it this way. I feel that even relaxed "chill out" posts should count towards the post count.

Hopefully this is the right place for this, but I think it'd be nice to have a general "favorite Pokemon" option that we can select in our profile details.

hello, spinyshell! o/

so, to give you an update on this: initially, when i came across the idea last night, i was like "huh, can't be that hard". little did naive me think, i would eat my words mere moments later when going through the actual backend of the forums to add the option. i found out that, much to my chagrin, that i would have to instead fill out every pokemon's name individually... close to 900 times (we're at 890 pokemon, right?). i severely underestimated what i had gotten myself into.

so far, i managed to add up to everyone in the hoenn region, but i'm taking this break to figure out whether it's worth doing the other idk 500+ or nuke the whole thing LOL

Update 2: got done with the sinnoh region, only to find out that the forums will not let me add past a certain number (i'm guessing past like 400 different options), so yeah... sorry u__u
Update 3: i made it a field to fill out, instead. that's way easier.

Thats awesome. Thanks so much for looking into my suggestion and implementing it.

You know how on our account details there is an option to put friend codes for the Switch, 2DS/3DS, and GO? I was wondering if there could be an option there for Pokemon HOME friend codes as well. Thanks.

After fiddling around with that “favorite Pokémon of every type” chart maker, I was wondering if it would be possible to add a “favorite of [x] type” question for each type in our profile, similar to the “favorite gen [1-8] Pokémon” options, as well as favorite move and ability options too. Thanks.

i sincerely apologise, but i personally already feel like there's enough ways to symbolise favourite pokemon via the favourite generational pokemon fields + favourite mega + favourite alola form + favourite pokemon overall. if you'd like to further break this down into favourite type, then i recommend linking directly to your personal chart in your signature.

edit: i've managed to add favourite ability/move text fields, though.

Drafts don't stay saved for long even though there's the option to save them.

Correct. Drafts are auto deleted after a while. You're better off storing a draft off site if you're keeping it stored for a long time
