UPDATES: Tentacool through Magnemite's families and Alternate Form Unova Pokemon added

Well, I didn't exactly meet my goal of updating once a week, but I'm at least doing better in bringing updates more frequently than in the past.

Brought some more evolutionary families again. The Kanto page has been updated to include the evolutionary families of Tentacool, Geodude, Ponyta, Slowpoke, and Magnemite.

In addition, I have finally created pages for the new Alternate Forms Black 2 and White 2 are bringing to the following Legendaries: Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Kyurem, and Keldeo. These Alternate Forms are not detailed in Nintendo's current official National Pokédex guide, and they probably won't be updated as such for several months after Black 2 and White 2 are released to America. I had promised I would publish these Pokémon as soon as their information was leaked and confirmed on the Internet.

Meloetta doesn't have anything new like the other Legendaries (besides Move Tutor moves), but it still isn't mentioned in any official guidebook. Check out the new Unova page for all of these Pokémon.

That's it for now. I will include Genesect with next week's updates since it too isn't detailed in Nintendo's National Pokédex guide.

UPDATES: All families updated to Black 2/White 2 + Vulpix to Bellsrpout's family added!

I am very glad to bring news of such a large update.

Firstly, ALL Pokémon families previously published have been properly updated! This includes Locations v3 pages and information relavant to the upcoming Black 2 and White 2 versions. On top of that, a big handful of evolutionary families have been newly added to Pocket Monstrosity's Dex! Head on over the the Kanto section of this site to take a look at them.

A quick note: some Pokémon have altered Level-Up lists between Black/White and Black 2/White 2 (e.g. Growlithe and Arcanine). Sometimes it just means the Pokémon learns everything at earlier levels, but other times they may learn a move in Black 2/White 2 that couldn't previously be done so in Black/White. Make sure when referencing the document that you are looking at the right game version list.

Another addition is an Index for Generation V attacks organized by TM and HM. If you need to quickly look up a TM's move and effects, you can now skim through a 12 page document instead of 60 normally. This document can be found over at the Indexes page.

Google Docs is now the filesharing site I will be storing all documents on. There won't be any convoluted website navigation and tons of bogus advertisements to sift through anymore.

Thankfully, now that I have corrected all the old documents, I can get to creating new stuff. I will try to update as frequently as possible - at least once a week so Pocket Monstrosity can cover as many Pokémon as possible.
