    Every time I use U-turn,

    Error parsing: callback|decision
    TypeError: Cannot set property 'slot' of null
    at Battle.getPokemon (http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/js/battle.js?v0.7.17.9:3751:31)

    I become unable to bring in a different pokemon and refreshing the battle doesn't do anything. Forfeiting seems to be the only way to end this.. Quite frustrating when I have to forfeit three games in a row while trying to suspect ladder.

    I could be wrong, but to me that looks like just a text / graphical issue, the move should still work properly. A similar error occurs when you use the item Red Card as well.

    Yeah, confirming, apparently the bug happens when a Pokemon faints to U-Turn (guess that Volt Switch is similar, couldn't test that yet).

    Bug on Pokemon Showdown

    I was battling someone and they used Volt Switch, fainting my pokemon. but he wasn't able to switch to a new pokemon and I wasn't able to do anything. I think that qualifies as a bug cause I know in the actual games, it wouldn't do that.

    Is this a bug?

    I was playing showdown when I killed an opponents pokemon with an archeops using u-turn. Then this showed up in the battle chat:

    Error parsing: callback|decision@http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/js/battle.js?v0.7.17.9:3751 @http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/js/sim.js?v0.7.17.9:392

    I could'nt choose which poke to u-turn into, which is what would usually happen. This has happened twice.

    Reminder: There's no need to have post after post reporting the exact same bug. Please read the thread or at least use Ctrl + F before posting. Thanks.

    As for the actual bugs themselves, I'm sure they're being worked on, as that's a major thing that's being reported. Just hold tight; I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

    i got this Error parsing: callback|decision
    TypeError: Cannot set property 'slot' of null
    at Battle.getPokemon (http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/js/battle.js?v0.7.17.9:3751:31)

    after i killed something with giga drain. I suspect it might happen when data is requested in a turn when a player has no pokemon in play

    I'm sorry, I've been working on doubles and that has a tendency to break things. I think I have it mostly fixed now. Please refresh the page and report if you experience any other bugs!

    doubles... YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS

    But yeah fixing volturn would be nice. On the other hand, being lazy and getting rid of the volturn that is killing ou wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Yeah, something like this also just happened to me. I was in the seasonal tier, won the a battle, but then it said I lost did points the wrong way. In addition, I noticed after the battle that the names and sprites in the battle area were showing my opponent playing himself, and me not in the battle at all:
    Big Pic (open)

    [​IMG]

    (And of course this had to happen when by winning I would have gone to number 1 in the tier :( )

    EDIT: Oh, apparently I refreshed before the screenshot which is why my team (the team that won) is on the far side. But I did actually win, trust me.

    This is not a bug, he got points for losing because the system thinks he should be higher rank then he is atm, so he gains points.

    Actually I found something similar to V0x's problem, although it happened to me after using the function "share replay". I had a normal battle (no bugs whatsoever) but when I tried to obtain the replay, well, this is the result:

    This bug has already been reported a bunch. When Hidden Power gets Encored, its type automatically changes to Dark for some reason. So, Wynaut's type didn't get changed, Hidden Power's did. So, that explains how you got a Super Effective hit to end the game.

    Kecleon didn't change types in my battle.

    Turn 6:
    Nidoking used Sludge Wave!
    The foe's Kecleon lost 46% of its health!

    Turn 7:
    Nidoking used Earth Power!
    The foe's Kecleon lost 39% of its health!

    Didn't print super effective message and also obviously didn't calculate super effective damage. Maybe sheer force is preventing Kecleon's ability from activating?
