      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:)

      hey, sorry to bother, but I'm trying to find out IV spread usage - do you have any data on that? (more specifically, how often certain Pokemon use 0 Atk IVs)
      1. Antar

        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?

      I can't seem to find them on the stats page in competitive discussion anymore.

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

        Server is currently working as fast as it can to process stats for the month.

        Oh fun. I'm actually gonna have to rerun these stats because of Crucibelle. It's gonna be a while. Maybe even a week (though I hope to have them done sooner).

      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.

      Fyi as of now nobody is running the FU metagame thread as the co-leaders gave up on it and nobody else wanted to take over, so I dunno if it's worth getting the stats for it anymore.
      1. Antar

        First off: Youtube. Secondly, the PS folks use the PU list to differentiate between PU and NFE.

      hey Antar Zarel told me to come to you for help with a statistics problem

      I recently learned that we've been hand compiling data for seasonals for the last two seasonals in doubles... is there a program out there that can do this without the painstaking long (and prone to error) process of writing it all down?

      Would appreciate any information/advice/way to do this, thanks n_n

        it seems to include seasonals with the ladder? Is there a way to do it so that it's just seasonals matches, or I can put in the replays I want analyzed?

        The stats are for all rated (ladder) matches for each tier.
