      can you read my pm pls?
      1. Trickster
        I think it would be wise to wait more than a few minutes after PMing him before posting an annoying reminder on his profile

        As Zarel's official spokesperson, Trickster would like for you to forward all PMs to him.

      Hello, i am from the future, and here the meta is great. alakazam was banned recently, and gengar is being suspected. in addition, talonflame has been banned due to scrubs. the current ou list composes of chansey, quagsire. i really like pokemon showdown due to this nice and balanced meta.

        I'm just a programmer, I don't handle tiering. Bug someone else.

      Hi. I am unable to battle on PS. Instead, I keep getting this message: This server's request IP is not a registered server.
      I asked Hippopotas to help, but he did not reply.

      Insert outrageous publicity stunt involving a DDoS, sexual harassment, a bowl of ice cream, and leaking of staff information here. ♥

      In the regular Pokémon games, the move Mean Look bypasses protect, however in Showdown protect blocks it off. I tried to do a trick move using mean look on an opponent using protect but it didn't work because protect blocked it off. I asked for someone to fix this in the Help chat room, and a staff member took me to here for me to ask you to fix it.

      Hey Zarel! My friend and I were wondering, what are your plans for Pokémon Showdown for the foreseeable future?
    9. buttofTheTitanTank
      P.S. can you do something so your ignore list won't die when you have a reconect :/
    10. buttofTheTitanTank
      Are you God, Zarel? If not then why aren't you :|
    11. MarchesVeryOwn
      lol I am so sorry for constantly being in your alerts but if I wanted to help with showdown how would I be able to do that as I said before I love it I am currently learning HTML CSS and Javascript all at once so I won't be able to help code until like January or February anything I can do now as a normal person pls include what i can do once i can code
      1. Zarel
        I guess ask the Help room.

      theres a glitch where if you send out primal groudon or kyogre and they die the same turn, the weather will stay

      I cannot post or create threads and I suspect it is because my account is not activated. Can you help me? I never received the activation email. So I can't send you a pm other then posting here.
    16. uCan'tSeeMe
      when will you or the immortal or whoever fix the replays? its very annoying for a tournament player to live without replays, i hope you will fix it soon. greetings
      1. Zarel
        They're fixed now.

      I really need your help, i love pokemon showdown with a burning passion but my computer recently broke and i have to use an old windows xp desktop to play, is there anyway for me to play showdown with more ease and less slowness and lag?
      1. Zarel
        Get a new computer? Sorry, I don't have any better ideas. :/

      Sorry to bother, but when do you believe the replays will start working again? :[
      And the ORAS Megas are allowed in PS's VGC2014. Isnt that a mistake? ._.
      1. Zarel
        Well, they're working now.

      When did OU switch to ORAS OU?
      1. Zarel
        I don't know, that was probably TI's doing.

    21. FearTheScreams
      Hey Zarel! this is my first time posting so forgive me if i do something incorrectly xD anyway just wanted to know if there was anyway to add custom sprite's for Pokémon using the Pokémon Showdown Client? or in my case adding custom sprites for my custom Pokémon i added using the Pokémon Showdown Client? because as cool as it is to have my own Pokémon it would be even better if it didn't look like a transparent box
      1. Zarel
        Sorry, no, that's not currently possible.
