      Hey, could i have Luigi or Luigi. on the smogtours server, since its my forum name?
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        no, names that are clearly trying to get around the fact that you don't have "Luigi" are invalid for PS name resets.

      Zarel, first of all thanks for making ps; it got me back into pokemon after a good few years :] I was wondering if you have considered a pokeball animation as it can reveal things about the set (as on cartridge) also im not sure if this would be possible and if here is the right place to ask about it but a free for all option, like a doubles match but with four players, each bringing 3 to the battle. Thanks again :]

      Hello, I created a username for testing on P.S., pidj3. I had laddered fairly well on the new vgc ladder yesterday but when I went back to it this morning I've found it is registered now. I don't remember setting a password so I don't know what it is. Would it be possible to have the password reset please?
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        It means someone else registered it. Next time, register an account if you're going to use it.

        It doesn't appear that "Crypto" was your main account in the past.

      Hi, I think you may have forgotten to put both mega mewtwo forms in the Ubers section in the team builder when you made the UI change. (the normal form is still there) sorry if this was your intent but I have ocd for this kind of stuff ;]

        I don't know, but since it seems gamut-was-taken is already maintaining them, it might be less work to just ask him to port his files over, instead of redoing them from scratch.

      "OU only when combining mega and non-mega usage" is a really awful title. Can you just call it "OU-" that way it isn't just megastone holders being listed, things like regular Hoopa would actually be counted in that category as its outclassed by its unbound form. Basically any pokemon forced to be OU but have no viability in the tier or pokemon outclassed by another form sharing tiers.

      Hello, my account called "tinyurl.com/gtmemd" was recently deactivated and ladder rank cleared of for linking to a offensive video. So I was wondering if the account could get reactivated and ladder rank back on it if i put symbols between the text to where the link wouldn't go to anything offensive.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        Your account was also deactivated for suspicions of ladder cheating, and presumably the URL can be reconstructed no matter what symbols you added. Really, if you make an account with a malicious purpose, you should expect it to be dealt with.

      Are the caches of the old ladders going to be saved and stored after they reset?
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        We did that last time, but honestly, we haven't done anything with the saved ladders anyway. I'll try to record some ladder data, I guess.

        CloudFlare isn't a web hosting service, it's just a proxy/CDN with DDoS protection and some other features.

      Will pokemon like Altaria drop to NU / PU directly or do they follow the regular usage system?
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        We might just start them at their current tier and lower them slowly.

        so you got blissey,or mew/slowking/slowbro. you use block to trap the opponent. and then softboiled till ur out of pp with it. leppa berry activates, and you recycle it back. for endless pp, and then you have fling to give your opponent pp. and then recycle the leppa berry to give fling more pp, and so forth. Me and my friend tested this . and i have some replays to show http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/monotype-256052386

        It's so much better for battling than in-game, where every battler has an OU team, especially when my favorite tier is UU or sometimes NU.
