      hi, are you able to reset the smogtours gen 3 ou ladder? (currently 26 battles have been played on it). ADV week in RoA ladder tournament starts 3pm EST Thursday (as does every week) and the previous two weeks: GSC and RBY ladders were empty fortunately, so players didn't need to use tags. Would be great if we could have an empty ladder again.

        You don't appear to be a Smogtours admin. Could you get someone who is to make the request?

      Hi, I'm saso and I need you to help me.
      About 3 years ago I registered with two accounts, 1 of which is Saso and the other Sas0, the thing is that I do not know what password I put to these accounts because I stopped playing a long time ago and now I have decided to go back
      Could you help me get these accounts back? You would do me a great favor.

      Hey Zarel, I forgot to set a password for my team submission for the VGC Smogon Tour, and I want to confirm what team I submitted. I contacted Rajan and he said he'd contact you, my match is in 7 hours.
      I forgot that I'd move towns between the submission and Round 1 :(

      yo, just a little problem with the baton pass clause in regards to z-moves, i had a normalium-z umbreon with yawn and mean look, z-yawn boosts speed while z-mean look boosts spdef, and i wasn't able to use the team due to bp clause, despite being unable to baton pass speed+another stat as the z-move can only be used once

        was this intentional or..?

        This isn't intentional, but is this a high-priority thing to fix? It may be best to ask a different programmer to fix this, I have kind of a backlog of things I need to work on, sorry. :(

      Hi Zarel! Is there a way to also include a link to detailed mechanics around certain statuses in the web client? I'm still figuring out SuMo mechanics and think having something like /data paralysis or /dt paralyze would be useful if it had information or gave a link to a page that detailed mechanics for that page.

        I'm not sure what you're indicating already exists. I am asking for functionality that lets me look up a move by generation. If I want to look up Blizzard in RBY, I'd like to see its RBY accuracy (90%) and not its current accuracy (70%). Similar idea for T-Wave. If it's a generation prior to generation 7, I'd like to see it with 100% paralysis or at its 90% accuracy if I'm specifying for SuMo. The screenshot you provided only states which generation the move/mon was originally released. I'm not asking for /dt as that only provides the current generation version of those moves/mons, I'm asking for a feature with /dt <move>, <generation> so that I can be prepared in knowing what those moves do in the generations I'm interested in.

        Probably never. The programmer who was going to do it has mostly quit.

      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        I don't know, there's some disagreement about whether it's 33% or 50%. I think we're currently leaving it at 50% until we get some more solid information.

      Hi Zarel, for some reason it says my ISP has been banned due to spam on Pokemon Showdown. I'm not sure why though because I haven't done any spamming and have barely even used chat at all on showdown lately. I am wondering if a sore loser has banned me or something. Can you please help me?
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        You wouldn't be getting that message if it were a sore loser. That message is only for IPs that other sites have identified as being high-spam, nothing to do with PS.

      Question: some regular users have permission to post in Tier Policy while others (me) do not. Just curious as to how one could attain permissions to post.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        Most badgeholders can post, but there are other ways to get permission. I don't know what they are, though; you'd have to ask someone else.

        Are you talking about on Smogon? Smogon doesn't even have a gen 7 dex at all.

        Oh. It says 20 base power on the team builder if you don't select a format, but if you do, then it's fine. It doesn't really matter anyway, since it goes to 80 when you enter a battle.

        The teambuilder's default format is Gen 6, that's why.

      I was just curious as to why confusion is still 50% at the code, was the 33% a false nerf? Also, I asked this quite a while back, but do you have any ideas for allowing multiple users on one IP to join room tournaments? I had mentioned an IP whitelist of some sort, but now with the current traffic I can see how that would be difficult to manage. Let me know your thoughts when you have a minute, Thanks.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        There is disagreement over whether it's 50% or 33%. We'll update it once we have more information.

        At the moment there are no plans for allowing multiple users on one IP to join roomtours, but panpawn may be interested in this.

      Aegislash doesn''t exist in regular OU, and when pokebank comes out both will be merged, so banning it on Pokebank probably is the best course of action.

        To be fair, I get the impression no one really liked the idea of tiering no-attacking-move Aegislash or Darm-Z separately, they only accepted it because of your workarounds.

        We landed on not tiering those separately, though, because DZ reverts on switch-out, and Aegis can always Struggle.

      Hello, just a tech question:
      I can't log into my tablet and can't log in on any other device (my phone, pc, etc). Both chrome and the app say "PS is under heavy load and cannot accommodate your connection right now" upon trying to log into that device. Tried rebooting. This problem came up when I was using the PS app on the device normally, the error happened suddenly, can you help me ? My username is Maxwellius
