Combining our common interests into something fun.
What it does
Comes up with a list of pokemon similar to different NBA players by comparing them to pokemon based on health points, attack, defense, special attack, special defense, and speed.
How we built it
While some group members worked on UI development, others worked on gathering stats, while others wrote the code for the game itself.
Challenges we ran into
Unanticipated issues with backend python, versioning issues with our first project (the LeapMotion python API was no longer supported). This lead to a change in projects halfway through the Hackathon.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting the GUI to work for NBAPokemon and overcoming the stress of switching projects more than halfway through the hackathon
What we learned
How to use GitHub, learned more about Python and corresponding UI.
What's next for NBAPokemon
Allowing fantasy teams of pokemon and NBA players to compete--pitting them against each other in a simulated pokemon showcase game.
