      Hey, will there be a metagame in Gen7 in which the banned Megastones would be available to use?

      In your 'Gen 7 OU usage stats' list, after around spot 70 there seems to be several Pokemon unavailable in Sun/Moon showing up on the list, such as Landorus and Genesect. was this due to an oversight or were they actually accidentally allowed for a small period of time?

      hey, is there an easy way to get usage information for "other" for individual pokemon? such as what the breakdown of "other moves" are for certain pokemon.

      Do you think there's anything useful in the usage stats of random formats? I was thinking that higher usage of Pokemon in the higher weighted stats might indicate that those Pokemon are slightly better than average, at least in that format.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        That's definitely one avenue to explore. The other is to use the moveset stats as a reference for what sets PS puts together (although you could always just read through the PS datafiles for that...)
        Dec 10, 2016
      2. MacChaeger
        MacChaeger
        Yeah, I know about the movesets being stored in formats-data.js, but now that you mention it, looking at the actual frequency of certain moves compared to others could be interesting...

      Stats question, how hard is it to produce individual Pokemon winrates? If this is something that just so happens to be extremely trivial and not time consuming for you to do, I was mostly asking because I was interesting in looking at pokebankou-1825 winrates. Additionally, if this is something I can dig out from the jsons myself, I wouldn't mind being told where to look.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Actual winrate is a horrible metric, because the PS ladder does matchmaking. In an ideal world, no matter your skill, your actual winrate would be 50%. At one point I posted avg. GXE, but all that tells you is how popular a mon is with newbs. You should look into my viability ceiling analysis. It might scratch a similar itch.
        Dec 10, 2016
      2. UltiMario
        UltiMario
        Yes, yet every single team based game has shown "50% winrate" is an objectively false statement, and is not whatsoever based in the grounds of reality. I'm quite aware of the contexts and limits of individual Pokemon winrates, and I'm still interested in analyzing them anyways. If it's something you could very trivially do, or tell me how to find, I'd very much appreciate it.

      so everything from aegislash to hippodown is OU now? aegislash got banned so alolan ninetales take the last place in the OU tier? or we get only 50 ? sry idk exactly how to ask what i'm trying to ask
      1. Antar
        Antar
        No. Tiers don't get updated until next month. Probably I'm not even going to use November's data in doing the tiering, since there was the Aegislash suspect test and all the new-gen hype.

        Roughly 7% of players should have a Glicko rating at-or-above 1695 (though I haven't validated that in a while)

      Hey I was told you were the guy to message about GXE and how it works, I apologize if there is a link somewhere explaining this in detail. Anyway I'm currently 90-0 (no that's not a typo, I've won 90 and lost 0) in a tier, but my GXE is only 85%. Why isn't this significantly higher? I was told that early one around 35-0 I just needed more games, but am I still way short?

      How come you didn't include PU usage?

        Because PU is the last usage-based tier. Monthly PU stats are up at smogon.com/stats

        DZ isn't volatile. If you switch it out and back in it'll appear as DZ. Or are you referring to something else?

      Admittedly this might be the opposite of what's intended, but as an AG and BH player having the usage stats for, say, Arceus reflect the usage of multiple per team is in fact extremely useful. Furthermore, if the point of tiers is to make a threatlist, then the difference between 40% of BH teams running imp Chansey and 20% running 2 is largely academic, and still gives the same teambuilding info.

        Yes, and Smeargle. It might be possible to do what you're describing, but if I can only support one, it has to be the per-team.

        Thanks for responding.

        That makes sense, although it would be neat to see. I suppose the how many of X run X would work similarly, though, so I suppose it isn't important.

        I clicked the link in the post and it brings me to the github thing, so I was just kinda wondering what the specifics of it were. If it's just you cleaning up stringy code then that's cool, but I wasn't sure if it was just something like that or something different. Thanks for clearing that up :)

        If you look at the Roadmap.md file you can see what I'm envisioning. It'll be significantly more feature-rich than the current scripts.

      Hey Antar, I was wondering what the meaning was behind the teammate percentages under the moveset statistics. For example, under Sylveon, when Krookodile has +12.121%, does that mean that 12% of teams that have Sylveon also have Krookodile? Or that the baseline Krookodile usage increased by 12% for teams that carry Sylveon?

      If you have a more complete dataset (for my stats project), that would be amazing.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        If Alakazam appears on 20% of teams with a Blastoise and overall Alakazam appears on 10% of teams then Alakazam's teammate score under the Blastoise moveset stats would be +10%
