      So I filled your questionnaire on Saturday but I didn't get a few of the questions in it, and I was busy yesterday, and Treecko john'd me :'(

      I caught Treecko now to finish it but my post wasn't saved unfortunately :(

      My opinion is pretty much a mix of all of the other posts, so if you covered most of them with COIL, then we should be fine :)

      Hi Antar, I'm having technical problems with my smogon account. I'm not able to reply in any thread or even start a conversation. Its just not letting me type in the reply box... The only thing I managed to do are profile posts. Is something wrong with my account?

      Thank you for the monthly stats! Is there a reason why you have two Battle Spot Doubles tags?

      I don't quite understand your post regarding the teammates stats x_x could there be some error with the script that gives odd NFE mons as teammates instead for teammates or is that just how it's meant to work? Thanks! >_>! Sorry for the trouble~

        yea it makes sense!! X is the original Pokemon (say Talonflame) that you want to compare with Aegislash (which is Y). Do you record the raw teammate stats thats just P(XnY) though since that could be interesting too and give the top 10 as well? Just a thought there that probably most people are thinking of what teammates meant.

        The data is there (You can grab P(X) from the usage statistics and just add). As for people getting confused, I would have thought the numbers and the fact that there's a + out front should have been the giveaway.

        I just responded to this in the thread. I suspect it's because (1) there just aren't that many SRers in the Prebank meta (2) most "competitive players" probably gravitate towards Pokebank OU so you get mostly garbage in Prebank.

      Hey um pokemon online usage stats is down. I was wondering if you could also post the most popular builds by usage for each pokemon which PO did like movesets,EV spreads, items, nature.

      Hi, I was wondering if I could get your usage statistics in a more friendly format? Also, when you say average weight, what do you mean?
      1. Antar
        Antar
        I'm away from my computer this week. Shoot me a message after Thanksgiving, and I'll give you access to JSON-formatted data. Avg. weight = avg. weight of players using that Pokemon (see my weighted stats FAQ). Higher weight means better player.

        Because the way PS does matchups, you're always paired with players close to your skill level. So WL means much less than rating.

      Hey, I was procrastinating in one of my classes so I finally got around to reading some of the links in your signature and the associated threads.

      I was wondering if you had considered putting out an applet to calculate the offensive/defensiveness of teams. No one wants to calculate it by hand, obviously, and I think it could be neat for the RMT forum for reasons you had pointed out of people miscategorizing teams.

        Cool! Another team successfully categorized (or are you only calling it sandstall now that you see these results?)
        Nov 13, 2013

        srk1214
        Yeah it's obvious sandstall. There's spikes, toxic, protect, wish, rest, aromatherapy, and anything else you could imagine lol. I also put in a HO team with 4 choice users and 3 voltturners and it output:
        Bias: 480
        Stalliness: -1.083015 (1.42 T/KO)
        Tags: ['sand', 'voltturn', 'choice', 'hyperoffense', 'sandoffense']

        In other words, your metrics work very well, imo. I'm sure the borderline call between balanced and bulky offense can continue to be debated, but it seems quite good at detecting the extremes.

      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.
    18. Samuel Dabakarov
      Samuel Dabakarov
      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.
    19. Samuel Dabakarov
      Samuel Dabakarov
      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, 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.
