    Hey Antar,

    Have you considered conducting some statistical tests? For example, one could test if teams with Mega Charizard X win more than teams with Mega Charizard Y; or whether it is better to run move X or move Y on a given pokemon. That is, assuming you have data on win/loss, which you probably do.

    Duhre, win-loss is a meaningless metric due to the fact that PS uses matchmaking. Unless you've got a team that's very good or very bad, your win-loss ratio probably doesn't change much from tier to tier, even though your rating probably changes drastically. That's because the better you are, the better the opponents you'll be matched against. So the only thing is *makes sense* to look at is whether rating correlates with usage, and you get that from "avg. weight."

    Antar, I see your point about the win-loss ratio and avg. weight. Just to clarify, "avg. weight" is the average weight of all players who used a given pokemon, right? So, since Aegislash has an avg. weight bigger than Charizard, can I say that the players using Aegislash are, on average, higher ranked than the ones using Charizard?

    The former uses a baseline of 0 (as opposed to 1760 or 1695 or whatever), while the latter uses a baseline of 1500 (these are the stats we used for tiering before March 2014).

    Is there a section within the moveset stats where there are mega only stats? I feel like they used to exist but I cannot find them ATM.

    G-Von, oh, gotcha. No. I'm not going down that route. Mega stones are just items. If I don't provide data on what the most common spreads are for Scarf Terrakion vs. LO Terrakion are, I can't justify doing it for megas.

    And, for the record, I would *love* to provide detailed cross-correlation statistics like that. But I don't do this full-time, so I have to prioritize what projects I pursue.

    • Click Start -> Administrative Tools -> Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
    • Click on Inbound Rules
    • In Actions panel -> click New Rule...
    • In New Inbound Rule Wizard..
    • In Rule Type -> select "Port" -> Next
    • In Protocol and Ports -> select "TCP" -> select Specific local ports: "8080" -> Next
    • In Action -> select "Allow the connection"
    • In Profile -> select "Domain", "Private" and "Public"
    • In Name -> Give a suitable name to identify your rule e.g.: "World Wide Web Services (HTTP 8080 Traffic-In)"
    This is how to access Local servers like the one listed in the OP if your Browser doesn't load them Antar

    galbia, I think that only fixes the issue if your computer's firewall is blocking the port. If the problem is that your office / university blocks the port, I don't think you can do anything about it.

    Quick question.
    Where can I find the "team types"? On the threads, you could see what type of teams were popular. Where is this?

    Calm_Mind_Latias it's there. Try searching for "Landorus " (Lando plus two spaces). Note that it's listed under Landorus, not Landorus-I nor Landorus-Incarnate.

    I apologize... i guess i was surprised that nidoking had more raw usage than Lando-I.

    I should have used the weighted stats as I gave up when I saw Nidoking using the "sheer force" query (and my mind did not see between Nidoking and Darmantan).
