      Are you still interested in Gen VI LC battles? I don't have a full team, but I would make one if I knew there was someone for me to battle.

        I'm taking a hiatus until I see what's going to happen with Misdreavus (or until I suck it up and learn to RNG in Emerald so I can get a legit Recover/Tri Attack Porygon). Check back in a month or so?

        Sounds good, I will. I also wouldn't mind playing any of the previous metagames (I remember you particularly liked the Sneasel metagame), so let me know if you'd want to do that.

        They're taking a long time to generate, especially since I'm generating them at a bunch of different levels for each tier. I'd guess they'll be up Thursday.

      Dr. Antar why did you volunteer to do the usage statistics and stuff? Just curious.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        In Summer 2011, I was a Youtuber and desperate for a tier update. I messaged RisingDusk, who did the stats at the time, to ask what was up and why there hadn't been any usage stats in a while. He said he was no longer affiliated with Smogon. So I asked BlueKirby whether there was anything I could do to help. BK gave me full access to the PO server (oh man, he's lucky I am who I am), and the rest is history.

      Hey Antar, when I registered I used a weird-random birth date and now that I want to change it to my real one, I can't. Why? If it helps, is September 9th, 1984. Thanks in advance for your time and help.

        First number is number of times that Pokemon faced off against Mandibuzz, second is fraction of the time Mandibuzz KOed that poke or forced it to switch, third number is margin of error.

      Hey, Antar, would it be possible for you to generate 1630 stats for OU? There has been some debate about the cutoff, and from what I've garnered from conversing on IRC, comparison stats would be significant in people's positions on the 1630 vs. 1760 topic.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Your timing is magnificent! I started the script to generate them this morning, and they just finished.

      Quick question: while I was reading this thread (http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/choice-scarf-role-in-the-meta.3500909/), I was wondering if it's possible for you to gather stats of item usage. It would be interesting to get some sort of metric to evaluate how much Scarfers have dropped in usage, but looking at your (awesome) stats, I didn't find anything that could be used toward that goal.

      Thanks!

      Hey Antar, not that it's really important because nothing dropped or rose from UU, but the tier hasn't gone official /yet/, we were waiting for the February stats to do the last round of voting (which we should be doing in the next few days) and then we'll go official.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Yeah, that's what I figured. Sorry if I didn't make that clear in that post. The nice thing is that it's a moot issue!

      Hi, I'm new here. I was wondering if you could help direct me to the appropriate thread I'm trying to find. I saw all of the rate team threads but I was wondering whether there was a thread here where I could post about one pokemon I plan on breeding soon and whether or not it would be good in competitive battling or whether I'd be wasting my time on it.

      Considering how far Pokemon has come since Pokemon BF, and how I've come to appreciate Smogon's tiers and metagame, would you like a rematch with fairer tiered Pokemon in X/Y? I feel that win on BF was a tad unbalanced. Plus, y'all need something to upload ;)
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Haha. I've actually just started up Gen VI content (was waiting for Pokebank's release, and besides, I haven't had much downtime recently). Anyway, yeah, we can have a rematch in X&Y. You don't do Little Cup by any chance, do you?

        Although I don't really do Little Cup, it looks like it'd be quite fun to get into. I'll have to do all the research into the rules and such when I get back from my interview this evening, but given a week, I could make a LC-specific team. I've been going really heavy on Singles.

        highly unlikely. There's a lot of resistance to the idea among the SS.

      Hey, give me a ballpark range for the minimum # of battles you think it would tAke to calculate a dependable GXE RATING

      2. Aldaron
        Aldaron
        Ah...that is good to know. In my preliminary analysis of how I would implement a rating system, I used GXE, primarily because I know lots of people are big fans of it.

        However, on the system I'm modeling right now, I'm not using it at all. I'm wondering how imperative it is we use GxE. Possibly only for matchmaking?
        Feb 11, 2014
      3. Aldaron
        Aldaron
        The modeling on this system I've been doing is based around 1000 players starting at the default rating and then randomly playing other players, with the ranges of number of games played depending on my input. I also arbitrarily assign high rated players to play each other more based on a random probability number I decided.

        We should really talk. I definitely want more details about what you're doing.

        GXE, imo, is the best single-value measure of a player's skill. And, as I found with COIL/ARMS, it's quite a useful value to keep track of.

      Hi Antar, do you have any idea when the rest of the tiers may be coming out? I understand it'll prob take a while and is a lot of work.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        My guess is that UU will be official within three months, at which point we'll start on Unofficial RU, and then on from there. We'll probably have a full tier list (OU down to PU) in a year.

        But that's just a guess.
