    That's not a bug as far as I know. This is how Outrage works:

    "Deals damage to one adjacent foe at random. The user spends two or three turns locked into this move and becomes confused after the last turn of the effect if it is not already. If the user is prevented from moving or the attack is not successful against the target on the first turn of the effect or the second turn of a three-turn effect, the effect ends without causing confusion. If this move is called by Sleep Talk, the move is used for one turn and does not confuse the user. Makes contact."

    Since you can't see what move your opponent is selecting on each turn, the most likely thing that is happening in this situation is that Protect is ending Outrage's effect, and depending on how many turns have passed since Outrage started, the user doesn't get confused unless it ends on the second turn of an Outrage that would end on the second turn, or the third turn. Your opponent was simply selecting Outrage on every turn and it just looks like Outrage was never-ending, when in fact they could have chosen any other move for use after Outrage was blocked by Protect.

    Yes, thats a known glitch and is to-be fixed

    This is a problem with the "Hidden Power [X]" moves, which are treated as "seperate moves" by the simulator.
    When you Encore'd Hidden Power [X] (Which takes its type from the move name) it counted as Encoring Hidden Power (whose type is based on the IVs, which I would guess made it Hidden Power Dark).

    idk where else to post this and a cba checking thread to see if this is a thing, if it is ignore this post.

    When laddering I have repeatedly battled the same opponent right after I just finished a battle with them. I have also more than once got the same opponent thrice. If it hasn't already this needs to be fixed. Having 3 wins against the same opponent isnt exactly accurate laddering.

    again, if this is already a thing/has been fixed ignore this post.

    Zarel et. al are aware of the ladder issues, but it's taken a back burner in the last few days to our hosting / bandwidth issues which should now be resolved (knock on wood).

    Whenever servine uses leaf storm, instead of their special attack halving, it doubles. Just a bit of a glitch

    Can't choose a name...
    It says:
    Username:
    ------
    Choose name Cancel
    I put in my username and click Choose name, but it doesn't load. It stays Guest5324 without changing to my name (Can't play anything except Random Battle)....

    Can you guys fix this please?

    EDIT: Lol... Just noticed the 2 guys above me have the same issue.

    I've had some trouble with the 'choose name' button. I've already played under my name, registered, set a password etc. but when I open the choose your name box, type it in and press it... Nothing.

    edit: In the time it's taken me to post this I've noticed the 'do not..' sign... Sorry guys.

    I am pretty sure that that is the contrary ability activating. Contrary reverses stat changes, so if a move such as leaf storm lowers your sp atk it will raise it instead. On the contrary (heh heh) if a move such as charge beam raises your sp atk it will lower it instead.

    Pokemon who use Bounce aren't able to get hit on the turn they come back down from the air. Incredibly annoying since a person can just spam Bounce to be invincible.

    Just lost the log from a power outage, but I can confirm that he was using Leftovers (no bright powder). If it helps I have the battle room #. Missed Rock Slide, Psyshock, and a Whirlwind. Rock Slide does have a miss chance, but Psyshock and Whirlwind don't. I will say when this occurred Gyarados' sprite stayed "down" while in the air in Bounce. Normally it disappears.

    It went like this:

    bullshit loss :( (open)
    DD Gyarados@+1 used Bounce (high in the air)
    Doughboy uses Rock Slide and misses
    _________________________________
    Gyarados used Bounce (crashing down): Doughboy's Poke took 60%
    Rock Slide missed (ok bad luck it can happen)

    Two pokemon dying simultaneously, one by LO damage and another by the attack of the LO attacker, causes a tie. Ingame, the attacker wins. afaik, there literally are no ties in BW.

    I don't know if this is just a bug or a server issue but I was just laddering and it said something like, "you've been disconnected, this may be because of a server restart." I reconnected and it worked fine, but when I hit reconnect and join battle my opponent wasn't there and after about a minute it disconnected me again. This time when I reconnected I pressed join battle it didn't work and my opponent had requested a kick. I was spamming the button and finally about 30 seconds after it timed out and I lost it said I joined the battle...

    When I try to ladder now nothing happens when I press the button.
