      you forgot darm z

        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.

      Just asking out of interest (if you've talked about it before I didn't see it), but what's Project Onix?

        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.

        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%

      Can you tell me how you gather the usage data please? I would like to gather some statistics myself.

      To answer my own question: https://github.com/Antar1011/Smogon-Usage-Stats

      So I guess my next question would be, are the log files publicly available?

      Apologies if it isn't my place to ask this, but is there any place where I could get Sinnoh Classic's current usage stats? Would be really useful for the thread since the 3DS competition starts next week.

      I had kind of a request if it doesn't bother you and you don't have to make thi's a thing but me and my friend we playing some showdown and we then decided to do doubles then we thought it would be cool if we could do 2 vs 2 battles it's just a thought we thought it would be cool but it's all up to you guys
      Have a nice day:)

        It's not in any of my stats reports, but I can look into it. You have a tier in mind?

      Hey there, I had a bug to report but it said I had insufficient privileges to post in the bug report thread. So I hope posting it here will do, as I saw you were the owner of that thread.

      when building a amoonguss for vgc on Pokemon Showdown, i noticed that the move 'Rage Powder' was listed in the category "nearly useless moves" which I feel is misleading to those who are unaware of how useful it is on him

      Hi you still releasing common movesets of each Pokemon for the OU usage?

        Can it wait until the rest of the stats get posted in a few days?

      Hey, can I ask how rises/drops are weighed over two months? Is it a 50/50 split (which seems illogical but I guess I could understand) or is it some other numbers?

        And on a completely different note, it looks like in Ubers usage stats all Rayquaza with Dragon Ascent (which is pretty much all of them) are being counted as Mega Rayquaza.

        haha dude I haven't even picked up my DS or logged onto Showdown since like September. But if my kid starts sleeping through the night again, maybe I'll get back into it, and I'll let you know. What is there even in the DC area? Nearest shit I've ever seen has been Richmond.
