      Hey man. It says your an administrator for pokemon showdown. I think I found a bug and wasn't sure what to do, so I guess I'm telling you because you could potentially rectify it.

      This has happened to me three times;
      I have a Jolly Salamence with max IV in Speed that I use as my Physical sweeper. Needless to say it is fast. However, when I face an Avalugg, it for some reason moves with priority, as if its faster than my Salamence. Also in every instance there were no relevant stat increases/decrease or sticky web or trick room.

      And I have asked my oppenents and they all assured me that their Avalugg had leftovers and not quick claw (I have observed leftovers in effect as well). Funny thing is that if I were to switch to chansey for a casual flamthrower, my chansey is faster than the same Avalugg that moves before my salamance. Also, this only seems to be the case with Avalugg because my salamence opperates normally in all other instance.

      I suspect it might have something to do with the move avalanche as it normally should have -4 priority, but some coding might have been messed up or something. Hopefully either you can fix this, or you can refer this to someone who can because its very frustrating.
      Thank you kindly.

      Woah that kit cost a bomb. You could buy a couple more 3DS with that amount ._.

      Oh anyway since I'm here, did you make a script that measures the stalliness / playstyle etc of a team ?_? If so do you have all the calculations written in words? Haha just curious x)

      hey Antar now that we've seen a lot of mega evolutions released / leaked what mega pokemon are you looking forward too the most?
    10. Arcticblast

      Hey, do you think it would be possible to collect stats for the most used moves in each tier? It might be neat to see if a metagame is more physical or special, a nice reference to check Hidden Power types, and an interesting topic of discussion for Balanced Hackmons and other OMs.

      I just realized how many data requests you get here, so if you don't get to this then no worries~

        To be more clear, I mean "Physical: 30%, Special: 30%, Other: 40%" for the former as opposed to "Stealth Rock: 80%, Earthquake: 50%, etc." for the latter.

        I think it would be useful to have BOTH. I've also been asked to look at item statistics.

      When I said that PS ratings didn't mean shit, I meant no offense to all the work you put into the rating formulas or anything. I read the thread you linked like, a month ago, and loved it. The problem with PS! ratings is the userbase, which is something we sadly can't fix.

      So according to the serebii.net corocoro reveal, steels no longer resist ghost and dark (nothing can switch into gengar safely anymore T_T) antar do you think ghost/dark mons in general will go up in tiers?
      1. Antar

        no idea. probably.

      Would it be a lot of work for you to generate moveset statistics like the one you currently do, but then only for 1850 teams/battles?

        They end up being almost exactly the same.

      Hi Antar! Is it possible to also have the usage stats tell which item is most used on which Pokemon? For example, it could help tell which Pokemon is the most popular scarfer in the tier or something.

        @The4gotNdeath If you want to take a crack at compiling item stats, go for it. I'd recommend learning to work with JSON files, so you can use my processed results (example: http://sim.smogon.com:8080/Stats/lc.json ).

        It's still being configured (this is not how the forums are always going to look). If you still have problems with it in a few months, bring it up again, but probably not with me. @chaos is the owner of the forums, and he's currently working on our new layout.

      If it means much, I've been wanting to shut down the Ubers Extreme Challenge thread for a while, but was worried about the back lash. Your post just made me grow a pair and do the deed. I guess for now on, maybe I should be a bit more confident in my decisions, thanks for making me realize that!
      1. Antar

        It doesn't matter to me at all--Ubers statistics aren't used in tiering. My only gripe is when people complain that our system is broken when they're the ones that broke it.

      2. Theorymon

        Oh I know it isn't a problem with tierng at all. But I still think it harmed the integrity of Ubers stats, which I still think is a serious problem!

        Just figured out what you meant. Yes, they're going to happen. But there's a good amount of time till Sept. 1 (though I might have a demo up earlier).

      I only ever had them stored on Pastebin, I'm afraid. A lot of them were pasted by the players themselves and then given to me.

        I see. Ah well--maybe I'll figure out a way to script getting them pulled.
