    that's supposed to happen, since qwilfish was fully paralysed on turn 14 and didn't use a move, hence dbond was not reset

    No, it is not supposed to happen. Being unable to move for whatever reason still stops the Destiny Bond.

    Apologies if already mentioned, but moves like Outrage, Thrash, Petal Dance use up an extra PP each time they hit. In the game, only 1PP is required for the full 2-3 hits.

    @ Baz, are you sure it wasn't pressure? Things like Zapdos use pressure, as it's its only ability, and I think it's moltres's only ability too... so if it was, I do believe it uses up two.

    EDIT: You implied that it might use up 3PP, if so, I don't think Pressure would do that... and then that's a bug :/

    No, not pressure. When you use Outrage for example, you have to click the move again for it to make its second/third hit. When clicking, a PP is wrongly taken off each time.

    Not really a bug, but this needs to be fixed. When a Pokemon does Hyper Beam and it misses, it still says recharge even though no recharge is necessary due to Hyper Beam missing.

    ok i dont have a screenshot since i have no clue how to take one...

    anyways, 2 weird things happened. 1. i hit search one time for an unrated random battle and it connected me to two people. 2. i got disconnected from the server and when i re connected to the battle i was in, i saw my foe left the battle, but my set of pkmn was switched with his. i could see all of what used to be his team on my side and i suppose that if he didnt leave, we could have carried the battle on with our teams switched.

    and im using google chrome if that means anything...

    First of all, the modlog seems to be broken.

    These kind of issues generally stem from lag, which can cause the server to be confused about how many times you hit the find battle button and potentially mix up users and their teams?

    I previously posted a similar bug and i think ihave a little bit of an idea of what happened. I suffer from the D/C problem and i have found that it will repair itself sometimes for about 20 mins or so. However after 20 mins it seems to just replay my last command over and over again. I have attached to two images as an example.

    another question is will the d/c problem be fixed or should players that have it just quit?

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but i was in a random battle and i used the move superpower. It's supposed to lower my attack and defence stats, but instead it showed that both my attack and defense were increased.

    Did the Pokemon have the ability, Contrary? Because then that would be normal. I believe Spinda is the only one to have that move+ability Combo.

    This is pretty well known by now, as 2-turn moves like Dig also use extra PP. Also, it also happens with Rollout as well. I haven't seen anyone mention it specifically so I thought I'd report it.

    At one point, I was disconnected from Showdown when the server reset but when I tried to reconnect, it said the name 'Metleon' was already taken. What was really weird was that it was already taken by me and the server must have not truly DC'd me from last time and thought I was connecting from somewhere else. It fixed itself when I refreshed the page, so it's not a top priority.

    There needs to be a better way to hide zoroark. Whenever you switch something in, it pops up in the first slot

    My opponent stood there doing nothing, and I got d'ced probably cuz of lag about 3 times but I came back, clicked "kick for inactivity", and I got d'ced again and when I came back I had to redo that. But then I just lost all of the sudden, even tho it didnt took me more than 20 secs to come back. Oh yeah, also when I come back (everytime) I look at the opponets side of the field. Here is the log:

    My opponent's Altaria used Outrage, I put it to sleep, it slept one turn, woke up, used Outrage again, and became confused. I believe Outrage's counter is supposed to stop if the user is stopped from attacking, so Altaria shouldn't have gotten confused after that first Outrage after waking up.

    This is a problem I've found when playing from my iPod Touch. When I first created a name on the site with my iPod (which I always play from), it didn't ask for a password or anything like that. Now, however, when I try to play, it says:

    Your authentication token was invalid.

    Username:
    Smaug

    Password:
    _________

    Log in Cancel



    EDIT: after a few minutes, it logged me in for no apparent reason.

    Someone else registered your username because you didn't. You should register your username so this doesn't happen.

    Not currently, no.

    Win a game in a browser first; that's my current recommendation.

    I was making a new team in text mode and I copy-pasted a set that had a typo in it: instead of "Shedinja @ Lum Berry" it had "Shedinja@lum berry" with no spaces before and after the @. This caused Showdown to immediately send me back into the team list, disallowing me from ever opening the team again. The button is still there, but it doesn't do anything.

    Another one of my teams works fine but refuses to enter text mode. I have no idea why this happens.

    Assuming you're talking about /birkal, that's intentional. :P
