I've been on this site since 2012. And in that time, there has only been one UI overhaul. And it wasn't really that big of a difference, but it would be silly not to note that it has happened.

Now, we are in 2017, and technology has greatly improved. I remember being on this site with a disgusting 19 inch PHAT tube monitor, and it barely showed the dimensions of the site. Now we live in a time with inexpensive monitors and drastically upscale resolutions, and sadly this site now looks like complete shit.

That is my first, and largest suggestion. Do whatever it takes, no matter how long it takes, and make this site look good again. Perhaps then the traffic of this site will return to the 1000 users at any hour of the day like it did in the past.

Another big suggestion is to do what Pokemon Sun/Moon did, and update the pixel art for Pokemon. These haven't been updated either, and they look really obsolete now.

What it should look like with minimal effort:

>>>

Try and convince me that the newer, larger animated gif sprites wouldn't be MUCH better for this site.

Finally... this is more of a criticism than it is a suggestion... but I for one do not like the amount of fakemon on this site. I think it takes away from the fun of the game. I understand that I will be in the minority and that is why I won't suggest anything, but I think fakemon ruin the experience to a certain degree. And trust me, I do ignore them as much as I can. But unfortunately I still have to look at their ridiculous eggs and their ridiculous sprites when I'm browsing through the site, so no matter how much I dislike them and am told to "ignore them" or whatever else... it's just not possible.

Maybe I'm not the only one that hates them though. Who knows.

This site has fallen off big time, and I think it's because it fails to modernize itself. I still adore the core elements to this place, and that's why I'm still active from time to time even after taking long hiatuses. But you're kidding yourself if you think you shouldn't try to keep improving and attract as many newcomers as you possibly can.

Oh, I almost forgot. A fun and very easy suggestion... show in stats how long it's been since you hatched a shiny Pokemon. I personally would find this feature really cool, since I'm currently at around 1500-2000 eggs since something's shined for me.

Not surprised that the people of this site are douchebags.
