      Shouldn't Leech Life have 80 base power now? It's still listed as having 20.

        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.

        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.

      Hey man, Showdown says the Kingdra line is not released in Gen 7 despite being findable with Island Scan. Could you make Kingdra playable?

        We had (at least the appearance of) consensus. And then you had to come in and present a logical counterpoint... :p

        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.

      Hey Zarel,
      Since the Mystery Gift Munchlax was released, can you make it so Happy Hour and Hold Back are legal for it and Snorlax on the sim?

      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

      Hey there, a friend said I should coem to you with a problem. See in game Greninja's Battle Bond says that it boosts the power of Water Shuriken yet it does not do so on showdown. Tested with both a Torrent and BB Gren using WS and both did the same damage. Just wanted to know if this is being worked on or not?
      1. Zarel

        Will investigate.

      im sorry if your being flooded with shit but I'm just here to point out the Zygarde doesn't have thousand moves and core enforcer. Since Thousand Arrows would be a really important move it would be cool if this got implemented soon. Thank you

        Through building it in the zygarde cube I think, it's on serebii and it was shown in the trailers so.

        it only becomes legal in PS if it is legal in the cartridge games, this applies to most Pokemon

      Currently on PS!, Sleep Clause activates when Relic Song is trying to put a second mon to sleep. Does Smogon specifically call for that in the clause, or was it your decision (or maybe it just happened to be that way due to how you implemented the check)?

      2. Zarel
        Zarel
        Yes, this is why it's called Sleep Clause Mod and not Sleep Clause. Because it's not enforceable on cartridge. Smogon didn't really make a decision here, as much as they were undecided so I just went with the one that people complained the least about.

        Would it cause complaints if we removed the modding Relic Song part and made the clause enforceable? The move is not relevant either way.
        Oct 25, 2016
      4. Zarel
        Zarel
        Yes, it would. That's why we ended up not doing it that way, after all.

      Okay, I don't know if this is the right place to say this, but I'm having trouble connecting to Showdown, and I have a feeling the problem is not my computer. I was in a battle earlier with someone, and each of us was randomly disconnected at some point. (Luckily, we both managed to reconnect.) Could you check on this?

        CsBlastoise
        Oh, and I "don't have sufficient privileges to reply" on the Serious Bugs thread, which would be the next place I would post this kind of thing now that I know it exists. Also, I tried opening it in Chrome (which is what I usually use) and Internet Explorer on my Windows 8 computer, and in Firefox on the Ubuntu 12.04 machine my brother was using. None of those worked.
