      It would be really great to have the option of changing Battle themes ost sprites of the appropriate gen in battles ;)

      I'm sure you get silly requests a lot, but what would i have to do to be given a name that isn't in use anymore?

        Well, it mainly depends on what the name is and why you want it.

        It's just my name for all sites/games that I play. I've been playing since 2012 and just always idled the name. I have always kept tabs on when it has been used and from what I've seen (Being a daily user) never met or seen the name in action.

      Aye Zarel Mega Latias cant run hp fighting, because it says latias has less than 3 perfect ivs. Is that a bug or something?

      i have a suggestion if u don't mind
      in team builder , whenever u type defog on search , it shows all mons in that tier and below that tier
      just add a filter for tiers like ru + defog + rain dance

      I have a question: whenever I import a team with a Hidden Power move and I enter a battle with it, the HP move gets totally messed up. Like when I have a mon with HP Ice it suddenly turned into HP Dragon in battle, even though the team builder still says it's HP Ice.

        No, Ditto is supposed to get the same HP it always has, which is Dark if it has flat 31 IVs.

        Unfortunately the battle is expired and the replay was not saved. In the future if you can save the battle log or screenshot the incident it will help us determine what course of action is needed.

      had an interesting idea: inputting a feature on ps where you go into a battle with a predetermined team, and it's already like turn 26 or whatever and both teams have mons down, or weakend, and the objective is to find a way to win from that precise starting point. It would require the opponent to be a bot that is pre-programmed to make specific plays (e.g guaranteed to go for scald with their keld turn1 etc).

        Sounds interesting. If people specifically construct these situations, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard for a programmer to add them in. That feature is already in Joim's to-do list, I'm sure we'd be more motivated to add it in if there was a thread with preconstructed situations already made.

      I found a bug in the Teambuilder. When putting "[]" in the name of a team, upon refreshing, it attempts to put the teams into a category folder (such as [gen6] and etc.), even if it is in a folder already.
      1. blackmagikarper
        blackmagikarper
        For example:
        Making a team named "[Team1] Offensive" and putting it in the folder "Teams"
        Upon refreshing the page, it has been removed from the "Team" folder and put into a folder named "Team/[Team1]" and the team has been renamed [Team1][Team1] Offensive"
        Jan 17, 2016
      2. blackmagikarper
        blackmagikarper
        attemping to move "[Team1][Team1] Offensive" back into the "Teams" folder will forcefully put the "[gen6]" tag on it instead of returning it to its uncategorized state

      Alternatively, is there access to the Teambuilder's source code so I may do it myself? I am looking through the sources and have yet to find the file containing the source for the Teambuilder.

      Hi i was wondering if there can be a feature on teambuilder where you can type UU, or LC, and theres an option to list only pokemon from that tier (Like the way it is for pokemon types), i find it more efficient and easier than scrolling down every time you made ur pokemon and i hope to hear your thoughts on this.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        Yes, that feature is planned.

        except multibattle would fail since no one wants to team with random players and chat will be a mess, and PM teams will take longer.

      I wanted to ask something about the recent changes to /ranking.
      What was the purpose on being able to reset your W/L record but Elo stays the same. I understand that you want to stress the point of your W/L doesn't mean anything at all compared to your GXE and I get that. But it just feels odd that your Elo remains the same.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        A lot of people think that Elo should not be able to be reset, but everyone's fine with resetting W/L.
