      Hey, I was wondering if there is a way to find usage states for singles OU and was told to come to you? Can you help me out mate?

      Hey, the Doubles OU Salamencite suspect test is ending today. Would it be possible to obtain ladder stats for the DOU suspect ladder some time next week, if it isn't an inconvenience for you?

        So there's nothing wrong with the distribution of ratings on the DOU ladder. It's true that about 2/3 of players on the ladder have had fewer than 10 matches, but that's fairly typical. Those players don't influence stats (you need to get your RD below 100 before you start contributing to usage stats).

        Would there happen to be a larger-than-expected number of players whose RD is below 100 but have an ELO of below 1100? (Arbitrary "low" number)

        Elo is irrelevant for stats or tiering. The only place it comes into play is matchmaking (and ladder rankings). I'll check if you really want to know, but I guess I don't really understand why you want to know.

      Do they have an option now for LC battles on Battle Spot?

      I thought I read in a post someone saying there was, but I am unable to find it. Other than actually having Pokémon at level 5 to do a free battle.

      I few weeks ago I posted in bug reports about how Vanilluxe and many other Pokemon erroneously have access to Endure on Showdown. I am concerned about this because the error does affect the metagame. Vanilluxe's most common set, no matter the tier, is Weak Armor + Weakness Policy+ Endure. This is impossible in practice because Vanilluxe does not get Endure. Can you tell me when this will be fixed?

        I'm not involved in Showdown bugfixes. So no, I have no idea.

      Hey, so when Gallade moved up to OU, it moved up from RU and not UU, and since UU banned its Mega stone before it moved back down, this means Gallade should now be RU instead of UU, correct? I ask because this seems exactly like the case with Medicham and I thought I might bring it to your attention.

      So I'm looking at Tier Shift's 1760 stats and they're some other sort of broken. I don't know if any of the other stats are like this, but I figured you'd want a heads up that something went wrong
      1. Antar

        Yeah, Tier Shift is one of those tiers where stuff gets broken. What specifically is wrong?

        I wanted to pull usage statistics from right before the Aegislash ban and usage statistics at the end of XY. I probably would have grabbed stuff right before and after the Mawilite ban too.

        The PS server with all the logs and all the stats had a hard drive failure in November. All that data was lost, and there's no way to recover it.

        OMG! If you hadn't threatened to riot I *totally* wouldn't have updated the tiers! The whole gosh darned Pokemon community should be thanking you for harassing me about this because otherwise there wouldn't have been new tiers ever.
