    Recently we've been having some issues with the server and lag. Specifically, if the bug you are going to report is regarding choosing a name or the slew of server error messages received this Friday the Thirteenth (July), we already know, and the problems are going to be addressed by the proper personnel as soon as possible.

    If I type rotom into the teambuilder search bar, then click on rotom-wash for example, it adds regular rotom to the team, not the form I selected. You have to do it twice to get the right form.

    Also clicking the find battle button twice queues you twice, making it really easy to accidentally end up with two games to play simultaneously.

    It's a server problem that I've been trying to fix. Don't worry, it'll be fixed.

    Get this as well. Also it would be convenient for Rotom-W to also link to Rotom Wash...
    I mean yeah. I am a layman, but that seems like the kind of thing that could prove to be really simple to add. If it is simple to add, it would be appreciated

    A pokemon that is under both Torment and Encore should only be able to use Struggle, but it attacks normally after the user selects Struggle.

    I don't believe that is correct, because it should be able to attack every other turn, as per Torment's rules.

    It never used struggle, period. It should happen every two rounds, but it didn't ever. Sorry for not making that clear, that was my fault.

    Next time it happens, post a screenshot or copy-paste the log, so people can see EXACTLY what happened. But that sounds really wierd, definitely a bug (if it happened just like you said)

    I hope this the right place to post.
    I have been trying to get on PS since yesterday, and it still says that it's not up yet. Is it really not up yet? Or is it some other problem I, in particular, might be facing?
    Please help. Thanks.

    Not sure if this is a bug but after your IVs are changed by having a Hidden Power you can just make them back to 31 and still keep the same Hidden Power. I haven't had a chance to test if the IVs remain as 31 or if the 31 is just for show though.

    It's really not up, it's been down for more than a day, and I'm really pissed off at the server host right now.

    The backup server is up, but it can't handle very many users, so you'll see the "server down" message whenever the backup server is full.

    Espeon used Baton Pass!
    Espeon is being sent back!
    The foe's Derpy the Dino used Pursuit!
    It's super effective! Espeon lost 80% of its health!
    Espeon fainted!
    The sandstorm rages.

    Pursuit damage was dealt on Baton Pass.

    Muted Users and Namelocked Users obey the old userlist system rather than the alphabetical one.

    Don't we all.... ;_;

    It's being worked on, though. So don't worry!

    (I'd like to note that the "Don't we all" was aimed at the "I want Showdown to be fixed already" part. I have nothing against PO users..... :x )

    ThePhalanx, please do not post the direct link to the backup server anywhere. There's a reason it's not normally accessible: it can't support that many users, and posting it publicly will only get the backup server taken down.

    Oh sorry. I'll delete my post.
    I assumed since Smogon itself posted it on [site] that it was publicly accessible :(
