Friends I've done it. Mastodex is now up! If you don't know what it is, Mastodex is a public listing of Mastodon users in which they are tied to a specific Pokémon of their choosing.

It's in early stages, I'm happy for others to play with it and for people to contribute if they want. It's licensed under the zlib license.

Some features:
- Translations for 4 languages (English, German, Italian, French)
- Clear way to claim your own Pokémon
- Responsive layout
- MissingNo

@citrustwee i'm gonna become the lynnesbian of useless shit like this. but seriously, i'm so happy this is finally up.

@funkeh My god this is amazing. I'm so glad I picked Metagross.

@funkeh Looks cool and I happen to have a picture of a Pokemon. But, it's not in the list! How can I choose?😂

@wonderdon I'm looking at adding Mega Evolutions in the future, but sadly haven't got around to it yet! You could add an issue in the issue tracker, or I'll add it later so I don't forget.

@funkeh Consider adding a text link in the welcome msg. It's not quite obvious that the image on the far right is the repo link.

@wonderdon Noted! That link should appear on the site in a few minutes.

@funkeh Awesome! Is it live on the website? I checked but don't see them 😅

@wonderdon Haha damn, the site is having issues deploying! It should be up in an hour or so, hopefully!

@funkeh i love it!!! will there be any function for changing the acc associated with your pokemon if you switched instances?

@bee At the moment, all people have to do is message me and I'll change it for them if it's obvious they owned the previous account.

@funkeh hi! dm you or just reply here, to request the change? good work btw, very satisfying to see myself in there

@funkeh I've moved to Porygon. 137. and thank you so much.

@purin porygon is EXTREMELY sought after haha. i've updated it and it'll be up on the site in a few mins.

@funkeh sweet, and i got there first 😉 cheers jojo.

@funkeh in that case, could i ninetsils switched from juicebat @ to this account? :)

@funkeh this is such a cool and neat little prohect! stuff like this is why I love the fediverse

@funkeh I love this but the lack of whatever time travel magic required to find Scorbunny's # and get them on here is making me sad and I can't bring myself to pick a second choice just yet.

Roll on Gen 8!

@funkeh where can I request a Pokémon?? This is super cool!

@funkeh did someone already grab missingno? i would be very surprised if not

@yabirgb sorry, gastly is hella claimed right now! would you like another pick?

@funkeh I wish gonna pick Mightyena cause it’s my icon but it’s already taken so rip

@funkeh Hi! Can I request Mr Mime? I couldn't reply to the thread linked on the claim button for some reason.
