        No problem. Anyone else who's feedback I should solicit? Or can we call this closed?

      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?

      Just as a note, zygarde complete 10 has a temporary advantage of a higher speed, so

      Hi! Sorry to bug you, but when are the tier shifts going to happen?

      How come you didn't include PU usage?
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Because PU is the last usage-based tier. Monthly PU stats are up at smogon.com/stats

      you forgot darm z
      1. Antar
        Antar
        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.

        and on a somewhat separate note, wouldn't mew be a volitile form change?

        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%

      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.
