    So I have the downloadable version of Pokemon Showdown.
    Problem:
    Every time I construct a team on it, it never saves. I check the Reveal Team Folders option and nothing can get saved into it.
    Can someone please help?

    not ecxactly a bug, glitch, question or technial error, but theres an extra pixel at the bottom-left corner of krilowatt's front sprite, probably a little mistake by the spriter

    note: this doesnt happen with its shiny sprite

    I'm looking for the background being used on pokemonshowdown right now. The one with Reshiram and N staring into the sky.

    thanks

    This thread has both that one and Yilx's waterfall background, as well as some other potential user-submitted designs.

    I apologize in advance if this is a rather stupid question, but in the last few battles I've had while laddering, my Glicko2 rating doesn't go down at all. Why is that? I was under the impression that it went down after each battle. Am I doing something wrong?

    Do you mean your deviation? In that case you're getting into some pretty hardcore laddering. The deviation goes down if its prediction matches the outcome of the battle, and, from my experience, hates you 99% of the time. Just keep battling and it will go down eventually.

    Thanks for that information. My deviation has actually started to decrease at a more reasonable rate now. Thanks again!

    Have you tried dragging the directory you want to transfer to in your terminal window (cd *drag directory to here*) then npm installing? Macs are a bit wonky sometimes (believe me, I own one). Through all of my attempts at setting up a server, I haven't had this issue, so this is all I got.

    You are following the windows instructions... macs dont have a c:\ drive

    try simple:

    $ cd
    $ cd downloads/Pokemon-Showdown
    $ npm install




    obviously you dont type the $, that is just to represent the terminal.

    I can't seem to get it to work for anyone but me. No one else can enter. How can I fix that?

    Port-forwarding a server would fix it. There are loads of tutorials on the internet if you want to learn.

    That answers my question... I think someone may need to create a post about this on the showdown forum. Just to stop questions from clogging this thread up.

    Hello there. The humble LCB greets you.

    Before I ask, yes, I am a moron. Moron is also welsh for Carrot, but I am no carrot.

    I was wondering, how do you actually name a server? I realize it has something to do with Zarel, but I am unclear of the process. Is it done after I port forward or can it be done before the server goes live? May someone explain it to me? I appreciate the time.

    I use windows, and I'm guessing it's my port because i checked my port with an application and it said "Could not send package". IN other words it says the port isn't on. But I don't get what I did wrong. Someone should seriously make a youtube tutorial on PS server making.

    This is not really a question but I had a cool idea for a team, what is a place I can post about it just to be sure nobody steals the idea and claim it as their own's? It involves trapping moves~

    as sarcastic as that comment was, it wasnt very helpful. All the internet results confuse me as well as i only want to open port forward for pokemon showdown (if it's possible).
    Try to be more helpful and less sarcastic next time mate ^_^
