      Hey man can you give me the LC usage stats. I need them for the article I'm writing since the format makes it helpful. If its easier to do individual mons, all I need are Pancham, Magnemite, Mareanie and Foongus in Gen 7 LC. This isn't that pressing, but I would appreciate getting this in a timely matter. Thanks if you do, thanks if you don't.

      Will you be running Ubers / LC / DOU stats?
      1. Antar
        Antar
        By request of TL only. So Ubers probably not (because there's no such thing as Ubers UU). I assume I'll be doing DOU/DUU. I have no idea what the Gen 7 LC community looks like.

        Well I'm not a TL any more so I can't officially request it but DUU does have a small following and we'd love the DOU stats regardless, so if it isn't too difficult we'd all appreciate it :D

      Hello, Antar. I'd just like to thank you for dedicating so much time to extracting the usage stats after all the trouble you've been facing. Keep up the great work.

      What are all the kinds of stats that you guys track? The only ones I know of are Pokemon usage stats for each format, item, ability, and move usage stats for each Pokemon for each format, and playstyle usage stats for each format. Are there any that I missed? Can you give me URLs for all the stats on smogon.com/stats?

        Just poke around in the folder. It's all pretty self-explanatory.

      idk if it would have an effect on your process, but the ps main servers have been insufferably slow the past two days. it takes over a minute for battles to load etc. could explain why it was taking a while for your stats

      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.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Check the JSON files located in the "chaos" subfolders.

      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.

      pardon me if I'm wasting your time but is there any way to find november stats for other metagames at the moment (vgc2017 in particular)?

      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)

      wrt stats, is there any way to figure out stats for just the usage period where Aegislash was legal? Seeing him that high on the pre-bank OU ladder even though he was banned mid month is pretty crazy
      1. Duck Chris
        Duck Chris
        actually scratch that just saw it was banned on the 29th, i thought it was earlier for some reason
