Pop Viz: Gotta Viz Em All

Screenshot of Pokemon Dashboard

This is the first of hopefully many Pokemon dashboards. Originally, I put the cart before the horse a bit and instantly wanted to do some really complicated probability dashboards. Turns out I’m not good enough at math and database structures to figure out what needs to happen to do that yet. I still want to, so if any Pokemon statisticians out there want to help, I’d be much obliged.

This is what I looked like trying to write SQL to connect the pokedex to the type multipliers table.

In the mean time, I thought I’d whet my appetite with a basic Pokemon dashboard. On this dashboard, you can use the buttons at the top to select the type of Pokemon you want to see. You can use the dropdowns below the buttons to choose which metrics you want to see. Your options are Attack, Defense, Speed, and HP (Hit Points). I’ve put reference lines at the averages so that we have kind of a quadrant chart going on. Explore it yourself:

UPDATE: Some folks on Reddit were asking for a larger version, so here it is!
