      Hi, I forgot my password, for my account called Shrekt'D on pokemon showdown. I was using that account to promote my youtube. Is there anyway I can get my account back ; -;

      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?

        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.

        I also tried using the Pokémon Showdown application on my Windows 8 computer, and that failed too.

      Hey Zarel, I can't post in the tier naming thread, but I'd like to bring up an aspect of the current tier names that I haven't seen discussed: They don't make any damn sense. In what tier is an RU mon rarely used? It's not in RU, clearly. It's not in UU, because an RU mon may be used as much in UU as a UU mon is used in OU, but the naming implies that it's used less, right? So it must refer to usage in OU.
      1. Fizz
        Fizz
        But here's the thing. The entire RU tier could see more usage in OU than the entire UU tier, but in UU for whatever reason the UU mons are better than the RU mons. So the "rarelyused" moniker doesn't actually correspond to usage in OU. A random NU mon could easily see more usage in OU than a random UU mon, and that happens. So the labels "rarelyused", "neverused", etc. literally don't correspond to usage in any tier at all. What I like about the system you proposed in that thread is that it gets rid of this problem: a UU2 mon sees about as much usage in UU as a UU mon sees in OU. This makes perfect sense.

      What do you think of this idea? https://twitter.com/rakomwolvesbane/status/765755887382388741
      It doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to implement, and I think lots of players would appreciate the chance to practice certain matchups before tournaments. I've forked the repo and I'll see if I can throw something together over the weekend, but it would help to discuss with somebody more familiar with PS.
      1. Zarel
        Zarel
        I don't think enough people would use it for it to take off, and it'd also be a decent amount of work, unfortunately.

        Well so the way I was picturing it was as an optional feature that would work alongside the normal ladder matchmaking. After picking a format and a team, you have the option to face only opponents whose teams match the pattern you specify. The key is that you can face an opponent who isn't using this feature and is just laddering normally, as long as their team matches the restriction you put. Of course people could exploit this to only battle favorable matchups, so a player who enters a restriction can't gain or lose ELO from that battle. Though like I said I'm not super familiar with the PS code, so maybe once I take a stab at it I'll decide it's more trouble than it's worth.

        "Of course people could exploit this to only battle favorable matchups, so a player who enters a restriction can't gain or lose ELO from that battle."
        I don't think the player who isn't using this feature would be very happy with that.

      Then all the rest of the time when people have problems, no one notices, they just sit there suffering, and when there isn't problems, every user is trolling, they havn't premoted anyone because everyone is a trash user in the room, so i think you'd be better without it.

      Yes they do help a person every one in a while, but while they do it there is still shitposting, some problems get skipped, Sometimes if someone is sucidal they just make it worse, they also just ask them to call hotlines, when they want the real peoples help, or they don't have a way to contact those such hotlines.

      Hello Zarel, I am here to pm you for a reason, that reason is such is To Delete The Happy Place, It has a great idea, and it was good for the first 4 years, but now its just a joke, a meme, people call it the lobby 2.0 for a reason, Its just so cancerious, that no one gets there problems fixed.

      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.
