      I have a problem. I already asked 2 other admins about this and they haven't responded I forgot the password to my showdown account and I can't remember what it was. I looked on google to find ways on reseting it, and I came across someone who said you have to ask a admin about it. and I looked at the list of admins and I found you. so, long story short, think you can help me please?

      hi friend grats

      also Metal Burst fail when called by metronome, even if the user could use metal burst that turn. Is it normal?

        Thanks!

        That would be pretty hard to test, but I assume it shouldn't fail if the conditions are right. The way counter moves are implemented right now on PS makes it not easy to fix though. :(

      Hey I was wondering how you calc'd Zygarde's defense? When I did it I got a value of 117. I assumed that the two clips had Pokemon with the same EV spreads. Made sure both were at level 50 and assumed neutral natures.
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Oh, I also assumed Zygarde had 31 across the board, which is standard when they show off a new Pokemon.

        I did make a little error. However, here's what I got. I had them both at Level 50, both with neutral natures, both 31 IVs and both 0 EV investment:

        113-118 Defense

        I got your calc of 99-105 if Chomp had a -Atk nature

      hey I noticed that surf + lightningrod is legal on raichu on the simulator atm but i didn't see anything on serebii about it, is it wrong or i just missed some event? also congrats on your badge, love your work
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Thanks! That's pretty weird since there are no Pikachu events with both and it seems to be illegal in Gen 5 formats as intended. I'll look into it.

        I don't get notifications for any RoA threads, but I did see your post. That issue's been known for a while but no one's figured out any good ways of fixing it yet. :(

        Oh.. That's kinda awful :/ can't PS check Ninjask's moveset and allows only one move if the level is higher ? I know it's only a strange case and almost nobody uses Shedinja but :s

      Excuse me but, how did Quick Attack and Pursuit work in both RBY (QA) and GSC (Pursuit) respectively? I've been told that they aren't exactly Priority +1 and Priority +7. Oh and do you have an accurate source for it?

      Do Gems activate for damageCallback moves? Psywave/Counter/Endeavor/Mirror Coat/Final Gambit/Metal Burst/Super Fang
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Yeah, as long as they actually hit the target. I just fixed the Endeavor issue but the counter moves might have the same problem. Will check.

      Does Shed Shell allow you to escape from Sky Drop?
      1. Marty

        Nope! Not considered trapping.

      Can you confirm how Trick Room works in-game? Does it affect the order that abilities activate in double switches? Bulbapedia claims it's only moves, but I think it also implies the order that Pokemon switch as well
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Ability activation order is the same as Speed order, and Speed in Trick Room is (0x2710 - speed) & 8191.

      2. ascriptmaster
        ascriptmaster
        Is this the cause for the trick room glitch? Since 1808 becomes 0, and 1809 rolls over to 8191?

        And along that vein, entering 1810 becomes 8190, which is "slower" than 1809's value, so if two Pokemon with speeds higher than 1809 clash in Trick Room, will the slower one move first?

        Hey, no worries, there was no way you could have known until that good Samaritan linked to it. Thanks for linking back though, your video does a fine job of explaining the bug, kudos!

      Yo Marty, Could you check out this game-breaking mechanic? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rzKTt0LEUk I know that it isn't implemented in Showdown but check it out.

      PS: In the comments there's a list with all the items that are affected by this mechanic

      How exactly is the Forewarn message structured? Does it mention the Pokemon the move belongs to?
      1. Marty
        Marty
        Yeah, but only since Gen 5 - "It was alerted to POKEMON’s MOVE!"

        In Gen 4 it just said "POKEMON’s Forewarn alerted it to MOVE!"

        Incidentally that's also why it's now officially illegal to nickname two Pokemon identically, or nickname one with the species name of another, to avoid confusion on messages like this.
