      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.

        A few days. Had to restart the processing job this time due to some PS changes.

      Hey, sorry I didn't get to you earlier, but could we get the CAP 21 Playtest Crucibelle Ladder usage stats posted?

        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.

        3.41% weighted over three months.

        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
        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.

      Is it possible to see statistics for just moves? ie: how many teams in a tier have the move Spikes somewhere.
      1. Antar
        Antar
        You can figure it out by summing the moveset stats if you've got some familiarity working with json files.

        Suspect tests that happen on their own ladder have their own usage stats files. If they go over multiple months, just sum the totals from each month. http://www.smogon.com/stats
