Pokémouille - A modern Pokédex (part 3)

Hey there, fellow trainers! Get ready for some news about my Pokémon encyclopedia web app, Pokémouille! I've been hard at work, making some awesome upgrades that will take this app to the next level. But hold on to your Poké Balls because I've got an invitation you won't want to miss. Calling all developers, whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, join me on this open-source adventure! Check out the project on GitHub, licensed under MIT:

Backend Overhaul: Say Hello to GraphQL

I've given the Pokémouille backend a complete makeover, and it's looking better than ever! We waved goodbye to those pesky excessive API calls by harnessing the incredible power of GraphQL. This means faster performance and no more waiting around (too much) for data. It's all about efficiency, so I optimized the backend to deliver the Pokémon info you need without any unnecessary fluff.

UI Makeover: A Fresh Coat of Pixels

I've spruced up the UI to make it sleek and consistent across all pages. No more wonky background colors messing with your Pokémon browsing experience. I've been working hard to create a seamless journey through the app, and these UI refinements are the first step. Remember, I'm still fine-tuning, but we're getting closer to that polished look.

Spicing Things Up: Sprites Everywhere!

What's a Pokémon app without some lively visuals? I've added charming sprites here and there to inject some extra life into Pokémouille. Those adorable little critters will make you feel like you're right in the heart of the Pokémon world. The app is looking more vibrant and engaging than ever before!

This project is all about collaboration and having a blast together. That's why I want you to be a part of this incredible journey.
