Hello, everyone! I'm inexcusably late with this, I know, but you should now be able to use the forum's sprite BBCodes for Gen 7 Pokémon. First, you can use 'sm' as the sprite set to get the sprite from the 'unified' sprite set I created for the Favorite Pokémon Picker, with 128x128 sprites for every Pokémon (either half-size versions of the Alolan dex sprites or padded versions of the OR/AS dex sprites):

[sprite=sm]charizard[/sprite] [sprite=sm]butterfree[/sprite] [sprite=sm]type-null[/sprite] [sprite=sm]raichu-alola[/sprite]

becomes

charizard butterfree type-null raichu-alola

Secondly, you can use the 'sm-dex' set to get the full-size 256x256 Alolan dex sprite of the Pokémon, for a Pokémon that has one (others will get the regular, unchanged OR/AS dex sprite as a fallback):

[sprite=sm-dex]charizard[/sprite] [sprite=sm-dex]butterfree[/sprite] [sprite=sm-dex]type-null[/sprite] [sprite=sm-dex]raichu-alola[/sprite]

becomes

charizard butterfree type-null raichu-alola

Finally, the 'party' set has been updated to the Gen 7 icons:

[sprite=party]charizard[/sprite] [sprite=party]butterfree[/sprite] [sprite=party]type-null[/sprite] [sprite=party]raichu-alola[/sprite]

becomes

charizard butterfree type-null raichu-alola

Happy posting!

Huzzah, thank you Butterfree! :)

Is the case sensitivity still in effect? As in, lowercase names will work but capitalized ones will not?

cute little surfing Raichu wait why did we not get surfing Pikachu?!? Gamefreak! >:(

Thanks for these! And I'll have to steal them for my own site as well, lol.

Yeah, they're still case sensitive. Might try to figure that out at some point, hrm.
