      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.

        Oh my God a permanent Wi-Fi Battle Spot would be the best thing in the world. But no, I don't think that's a thing.

      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.

        Sorry, I assumed you were since yours was the first post in the thread. Do you know who is in charge of those things? I also have a few other errors in the movesets to report.

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

      where do you get access the the logs that you scrape to generate the stats? I'm looking for the raw data from the server.

      They should give you TC because in a way you do contribute to tiering lol :P

      Hey, I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for collecting usage data and whatnot. I'm looking to find data on specific points in time, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

        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.

        Oh no! That's tragic. In any case, I'm pretty interested in gathering and interpreting data like that for the future. I'd love to help out in any way I can.

        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.

      Hi there, just a quick question about COIL. Does it decay with inactivity?
      1. Antar
        Antar
        Yes. If you don't play for a period, then your RD will rise, which lowers your GXE, which lowers your COIL.

      Hey Antar, just wondering, when does Doubles UU tiering get recalculated? Wanted to play a game or two but realized that it would still be using last gen's banlist so I was wondering when that's scheduled to change.
