Bug Reports v2.0 (READ OP BEFORE POSTING!!)

I'm pretty sure that's normal behaviour and there is no bug.
No, that is definitely a bug. Landorus-T fainted a Pokémon, the other guy switched in Weavile, but before Weavile could even attack, Landorus-T switched to Aegislash and was able to use King’s Shield. That’s 2 turns after fainting a Pokémon, Aegislash switch and King’s Shield usage, without the other Pokémon getting a turn yet, which isn’t normal. And no, there was no Red Card or forced switch into Aegislash that I can see, it was a normal switch on the same turn that he fainted a Pokémon, as if we were in in-game story battles where you get to know the opponent’s next Pokémon and can switch the same turn.
 
Basically the most popular Blaziken moveset is an illegal combination that is not possible in game. Low Kick (egg move) + Knock Off (Gen 5 tutor) + Speed Boost (Hidden Ability).

In generation 5, the only Speed Boost Torchic was the 2010 Japanese Dream World event, which was male only. Also, males could not pass the hidden ability in that generation. In generation 6, this has changed, but egg move + gen 5 tutor + hidden ability isn't possible, unless I am mistaken somehow.

Presumably this could affect anything that had a male-only or otherwise non-breedable hidden ability last gen that is now breedable, but I haven't tested any others.

Resolved: Not a bug. Thanks anty208

They are both gen5 move tutor moves for blazekin. This does mean that they all have to be male though...


I have a big visual glitch. Random pokemon turn shiny for me (eg delphox is always shiny.
Here is a battle replay (nothing shiny), and some of my screenshots:

My gardevior also wasnt shiny, then mega evolved to a shiny.
Im using chrome if relavent.

Another Pokemon that has this problem is Rampardos. Instead of being it's normal self every Rampardos is shiny.
 
Hi, I ran into a bug with roost on showdown. I have a replay of it, it happens on turn 20. Basically what happens is I have a swampert out, he has hydreigon. He uses roost, I use earthquake /after/ he roosts, and it still says that the move doesn't affect hydreigon. I am pretty sure that roost makes pokemon with levitate vulnerable to ground type attacks for the turn they use it on.

It does not. Roost removes Flying type, not abilities.
 
I think there is something wrong with my computer with Showdown. When ever I try to watch a replay, ALL sprites come out and do what they do, and the message box keeps flashing on screen. Whenever I play, the attacks go by so fast I don't know what's happening. Anyone know??

Try clearing your chache/cookies/etc (back up teams beforehand). If it's not fixed, try using Firefox or something (JUST NOT IE).
 
I found what I think is just an oversight, but it's possible to use normal Keldeo with secret sword while it should be forced in its resolute form. Attempting to use Resolute Keldeo without secret form changes it to its normal form but using the normal form with secret sword doesn't change it to resolute form for some reason.
 
I just encountered a bug in randoms. Raikou only had three moves. The mods in chat said it's because two of the possible moves are hidden power, which would make sense, but it's strange that it's a known bug that hasn't been fixed. They directed me here. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/iogpCg1.jpg
This is a very well known bug. It seems to be happening with Jolteon and a few other Pokemon. I'm sure staff are hard at work trying to fix it.
 
While I was doing a random double battle, I came across an unusual anomaly. I'm not sure if this is a glitch with the Simulator or if it also occurs in the X and Y cartridge.

This is what happened. On turn 5 of the posted replay Pyroar used Hyper Voice on Hawlucha and Golduck. Hawlucha got hit first and its Red Card item triggered, forcing Pyroar out. Then the second hit of Hyper Voice KOed Golduck. This would normally have triggered Pyroar's Moxie ability, but Pyroar wasn't in the battle. However the ability still seemed to trigger and gave the boost to what was brought out, in this case Noivern.

Here is the replay so you can see the event.

Hey, I ran into a visual glitch in Showdown. It's impossible to legibly reproduce it anywhere else than Hackmons, because it relies on having both the Illusion ability and Transform move.

Here's a replay: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/hackmons-117095244
EDIT: Take a look at turn 10 and 20

Anyway, what happens is this: I send in my Illusion Blissey. I transform before taking any damage. What happens next is I take damage while transformed. The illusion wears off and I look like Blissey, but I'm technically still the other Pokémon. I just look like Blissey.

For example, using Ghost attacks on the Blissey in the replay would be 2x damage, and Fighting 0x, because it's technically an Aegislash.
Fixed after next server restart (indeed a visual glitch).

Almost Any Ability Bug found with Mega Evolving:

Mawile @ Mawilite
Ability: Illusion

Turn 9-12 is focus of the bug.

Mega Mawile de-digivolved.

Ditto failed to copy a mevo between turns 2 and 3, not sure is this is a bug or not.

Fixed after next client update (just a visual glitch).
 
I found a glitch which has happened to me twice. When I send out my absol, before I add up on stats and baton pass it; nothing unusual happens.
HOWEVER: when I baton pass my absol, this will happen to me.

There seems to be a glitch in where a ditto with the ability imposter which usually copies the ability of the opponent among other things cannot copy the form switching ability of aegislash being stuck in shield form.

To demonstrate since I forgot to save the video the first time I asked saucy raichu(Another player) to replicate the events of the battle.

Here is the link to the video which demonstrates the glitch thank you for your time.
