      hey, i think there is a new problem on PS wich doesnt allow the use of knock off/Thunderwave/Seismic toss/Softboiled Clefable in gen4ou.
      It shows the Your team was rejected for the following reasons: - Clefable has moves incompatible with its ability. msg and previously noone had any problem with the use of that set.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        What ability? Can you describe how you'd usually get that Clefable?

        so im talking about magic guard clefable and to obtain that set you first off need to get a clefa in gen3 games and teach it softboiled from move tutor then you transfer it into platinium, evolve it and it has 50% chance to change it's abillity to magic guard then you can get knock off from move tutor in platinium and seismic toss + thunder wave are just TM moves

      Hello, Zarel. I have a problem, can you fix it, please? When i try to talk it says "Due to spam from your ISP, you can't speak except to staff.". I swear i didnt't break any rules or did something wrong. I was just fighting. Thank you for giving me attention by reading this message and I hope you are gonna fix it. By the way my username on PS is same as forum one (Seaslide).

        You can't ask me about that sort of thing on Smogon, we can only fix that while you're online. Next time, PM a moderator in Help.

        Oh, wtf is Soku Bot for now then? Nothing? Also is there a /kickhost function for soku or is it just the one /soku.

      Hello, Zarel, I have recently come across a bug on smogon. The bug makes it so i cant change my avatar. I did recently change my name but I've been told that doesn't effect this. Maybe I'm blind, who knows?

      http://i.imgur.com/M3Ruh0W.png - Chlorophyll is forcing a suggested spread with maximum Speed investment on Trick Room Exeggutor. Most noticable in Gen 4 where Chlorophyll is Exeggutor's only ability and there's a SmogDex analysis for the set. (hopefully the right place to bring this up)

        That might be because Showdown! only supports 96 by 96 sprites, and Generation 3 sprites are smaller than that.

      I noticed Showdown is saying that Zygarde can't have G6 tutor moves with Power Construct even though you can legally get them in game if you use the "Use Zygarde and the cube" option on a transferred Zygarde and 50%+ in the cube with a tutor move (had Zen Headbutt). Also 10% can't get the tutor moves if it doesn't have power Construct since it can't transform into 10% without it and not having been introduced in G6.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        ...I'm sorry, I don't understand you. Could you try phrasing it more clearly?
        Apr 15, 2017
      2. TheArrowOfLight
        TheArrowOfLight
        Ok basically Showdown is saying that Zygarde can't have moves like Zen Headbutt, or Hyper voice if it has the Ability Power Construct since they are tutor moves from G6. But it can legally have both of them with one of the options with the Zygarde assembler if there is enough cells in the Zygarde cube and the Zygarde has those moves prior

        TheArrowOfLight
        (didn't want to run out of space for the above)
        Zygarde 10% with aura break in Showdown is compatible with the moves as well but G6 Zygarde can't transform into its 10% form if it has Aura break making it impossible for 10% to have those Gen 6 tutor moves. 50% power Construct Zyg can transform into 10% pc which is the only way 10% can have them

      There is an option of 'Ignore Opponent' and 'Ignore Spectators' so why is that if a person being rude in a tournament battle gets room banned and eventually locked. Being rude in that language which you don't even know, does that make you bad? What is the use of this option if you get banned.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        The option is there because not all people feel comfortable reporting people, and because there are certain things people don't want to see that aren't against the rules. Being rude is still against the rules.

        So that was common knowledge? Then again, considering he tries so hard not to sell the idea of not being a Yuyuko fan, he just revealed that he is a fan.

      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        The basic idea is because we trust moderators to be fair, more than we trust users not to try to cheat the system. Right now you seem pretty belligerent right now so it seems like the rule is working properly...

      I know that you are extremely busy, but I am wondering if you are going to reboot Gen Next OU for Gen 7. I know that I'm one of the few who still plays it or is interested in it. It's a lot of fun and Dojo had a tour of it, which made me happy. Thanks Zarel.

      Hi Zarel, did you by any chance watch the English version of the movie Destiny Deoxys? If you did, then can you please watch this 3 minute VIDEO I made related to the movie?
