Hey so I'm gonna put this here but I can put it in PR if needed, Antar how achieveable would it be to do the sampling of stats from (for example) the 25th of the previous month to the 25th of the next so that stats could come out on the first? Perhaps this is something only I care about but I feel like having the shifts being cleaner from month to month would be good for future organization. As it sits it feels like the boundary is really soft so it makes it hard to refer to a few months back easily.

Stats for the month are now up, however, these stats only cover up to the 23rd, since a glitch prevented PS from actually saving battle logs from the 23rd of June to the 3rd of July. Thus, battle-counts are going to be low, and pre-tier-shift usages are going to be more dominant than they usually are.

Antar are the battle counts accurate for march-april-may? did the kerfuffle with the stats for those months have any effect on that? i'm just wondering because the battle counts for those months are lower than i'd expect for some metagames

MAMP, for some metas, you might have to combine across several variants (alpha-beta-suspect...), and there was a spot where a bunch of logs for May never got saved. But otherwise I haven't heard of any issues affecting counts.

I don't know if this has been discussed before but shouldn't the rise/drop cutoff be lower for mega-evolutions just because it's not possible to play several of them in the same team ?
The link in in the FAQ that fixed it is from 2008 when the 1 mega per team limitation didn't exist and I couldn't find any other thread about it.

Out of curiosity, would there be a way to see how much less usage pokemon A would have with pokemon B? For example, in high-ladder AG, Tapu Lele sees increased usage with pokemon such as Deoxys-A. However, it isn't used as much with extremespeed users such as mega rayquaza or arceus, because those pokemon are significantly worse without their priority moves.

The chaos file has a stat called 'checks and counters' which shows how often pokemon A is played with pokemon B which should help you see this.
For example, here you can see that tapu lele's most common teammate is deoxys-attack by far.
However if what you're looking for is seeing how much extreme speed usage on a mega rayquaza drops when paired with tapu lele, I don't think there's a way you can see it from the published data.

omg
Yveltal doesn't see any usage in OU, UU, RU, or NU.
That means that it should be in PU. Yveltal for PU was right.

By the way, what is the counter?
It will be absolutely necessary to use it in OU as soon as people start using Maractus teams.

Nailec thanks! I'm not looking for a rise or drop of usage for extremespeed mrayquaza, I was just giving it as an example of a pokemon that might see decreased usage.
