      idk if endless battle clause is supposed to apply to oldgens, but if so it's possible to have endless battles in rby quite easily

      Zarel, you should make a post called "Create a Pokemon Game Challenge" You have to create a Pokemon game with a central theme, location, and have gym leaders and elite four. You also have to draw or describe the map. You can only use Pokemon that are legal as well.

      Hey, don't know if this is addressed and I don't know who to contact about this, but can you please add a filter in the teambuilder on PS for priority moves? (Like how there's already physical, special, and status) Thank you.

      I was wondering what the policy on using advertisements on privately owned showdown servers was. I wanted to use ads (that users may choose to opt out of) to assist with VPS costs, is this something I would be able to look into doing?

      I was told to ask you specifically.

      Excuse me, but I was hoping that you could help me with a technical issue with the pokemon showdown servers. When i go to log in, a message that says, "This server is requesting an invalid login key. This probably means that either you are not connected to a server, or the server is set up incorrectly." shows up. I would appreciate it if you could help me figure this out.

      Just so I don't turn the 48th thread into a cathy hate fest ... people actually liked the pixel experiment? I loved it but I seem to remember a PR disaster that resulted in a near immediate switch back to percent.

      Sorry if there's an obvious problem with this, but:
      Regarding the 48ths/100s topic in PR, couldn't there be a compromise where you can choose which to see in a battle? As I understand it, there is no mechanical difference; it's rather a visual/display issue. We can't show both because that's too much information, so that's off the table. But what if there were a setting (c)
      1. Khaytra
        (c) where you could mark "Use real 48ths to display HP" or "Use estimated %s to show HP" in the settings menu and when a battle is created the text is based on whatever the setting is at the time, like whether or not the battle is displayed using the optional BW sprites? That way, both sides can whichever display they're comfortable with. You said you were open to compromise for convenience, so might this be it?

      Is there any way I can get an inactive alt on Showdown that I want because I want to change my name? If there isn't a way that is fine

      Ideally I think we’d calculate how much in-game time it takes to perform a move and subtract that from a newly implemented 1-hour battle timer on PS, in addition to the normal drain that happens when deciding which move to use. However I think that would require a ton of research, probably not feasible. Still I’m happy someone finally brought this up in PR, so TY for that!
    16. 4012
      Hey Zarel, I wanted to thank you.

      you've lobbied in PR for important things this generation, including "Separate tiering of mega pokémon," also you've seemingly supported non-pokémon bans (bothers me, too)

      Recently, you posted "Time/turn limit on games," long overdue.

      IMO, should be limited to LESS than 1 hr, as turns in-game happen slower than on simulator (“skip turn,” connection delays).

      TY again, PS FTW! :)

      I need to be on PS for a VGC event. I have not lied to you. Ask people that know me I swear I'm not bull shitting. I'm very annoyed that all I have done is tried to help and this is how you repay me.

      Hello Sir! I want to claim an innactive alt on showdown as my own to match my username. Anyway I can do this?

      Hey Zarel I was wondering if you could reset my PS password? I wasn't signed in and for some reason my pw doesn't seem to work. It's my main account and I've signed in hundreds of times so I know the pw but it won't work. my PS account is identical to my Smogon account: trillyntruly. i've even posted reqs in the past before so there should be no question it's my account. Thx!

      I don't have PR access, so I wanted to mention that Defensive Starmie only avoids a 2HKO from STAB Foul Play with a minimum Attack IV. I don't think the value really matters otherwise for it because the damage is so minimal, so Rapid Spin should probably not count as a physical move.
