Rekindle Your Love for Pokemon with Pokemon Battle App for Android!

Were you a Pokemon addict growing up? Did you spend many long days and nights hunched over, playing on your not-so-lovely, green-tinted 160×144 Nintendo Game Boy screen? Luckily for you, XDA forum member notverycreative has come up with a creative game meant to appease your nostalgic needs.

With what started as just an AP Computer Science project, Pokemon Battle App takes the most fun part of the Pokemon games (the battles) and packages them up in a fun and addictive game for everyone to enjoy on the go. In the words of the developer:

Everyone’s favorite Game Boy series comes to the little robot in your pocket with all 649 Pokemon, all their moves and abilities, and all the items!

Features include…
-Total team customization–EVs, IVs, moves, abilities, held items, gender, everything!
-Quick Battle for a simple skirmish or the endless Battle Tower to test your Pokemon mettle!
-All Pokemon, moves, abilities, and items from all games up to Black ‘n’ White!
-Super-duper open-source technology!

What works:
-Battling from start to finish
-Team builder
-All Pokemon and their movepools
-Somewhat functional AI
-About half of the attacks
-Updater to update to the newest nightly build
-Bug reporter

What doesn’t:
-About half of the attacks
-Most abilities and items
-Some occasional force closes
-We need a real name D:

Continue on to the application thread to get your battle on! Also, be sure to suggest a final name for the project.

Devs Beware – Automatic Backup Privacy Risks

One new feature of "Android M" (speculation on potential names welcomed on the back of a postcard) which gained little attention at Google I/O so far was the introduction of a new, automatic backup feature for application data. Obviously, it's still early days yet, though you can download the developer preview (if you're brave!), so we can't be sure of the final implementation, but there are a few gotchas here that developers should be aware of.

Whether or not this will be directly based on those apps seen in your recent apps menu or uses a combination of that and your most frequently used apps remains to be seen.
