Pokemon version of cowsay with CLI and API.

{focus_keyword} dfrankland/pokemonsay demo

Inspired by another pokemonsay and parrotsay-api I created this to
quell my obsession with Pokemon and command line greetings. This module includes
all Pokemon and forms available on Bulbapedia excluding shinies, a total
of 846
.

CLI

Random

Simply call pokemonsay to get a random Wild POKEMON appeared! message.

Piping to STDIN

Pipe to pokemonsay to get a random Pokemon with the piped message below it.

API

There are a few methods that are available to utilize pokemonsay in your own
app/module!

iChooseYou

The resulting objects in an array will contain the following properties:

  • pokemon: The name of the Pokemon.

    • Example: “A” for Alola Form (Marowak A-form) or “A” for Attack Form
      (Deoxys A-form)
  • say: The ANSI compatible string meant for console.logging.
