I teamed up with the super friendly mod team of r/pokemongo and Usama Khan on the dev part to design this layout, heavily inspired by the popular game by Niantic Labs.

We came up with a few module experiments such as a sidebar Pokédex that we consider implementing one day.
Here’s a preview of the nightmode variant, which hasn’t been implemented yet.
