In Layman's Terms

No doubt you've seen style switchers on other pokemon sites, but none of those sites has the customizability of pokemonfan.net's style switcher. Basically our style switcher on pokemonfan.net allows you to do two things. First, you can select from a nice range of different layout designs. Or you can choose to customize your own layout! Just select your colors, choose your background, and click apply! It's that simple.

Abilities were actually introduced back when Ruby and Sapphire were released and were among the numerous changes introduced by that generation which irrevocably altered the metagame and set it on the direction that would bring us to where we are today.  In any event, we'll be separating the abilities list into two separate tabs, one for those abilities covered by the RS generation and another tab for those new abilities introduced by the DP generation. Tabs within either generation are separated alphabetically to make it easier to sort through the different abilities.
