    Can anyone tell me how much mobile data Pokemon showdown tends to use? I have a HTC Vivid with 4.0 chrome and have a 250mb per month plan, and I want to know if I can feasibly use Pokemon Showdown on my 4g.

    Err, 100mb an hour is ridiculous.

    The active connection is around 0.5 KB/s. That works out to around 2 MB/hour.

    The initial download is around 10 MB. Mobile tends not to be able to cache much, so that's how much you'd probably download each time you open PS.

    So, yeah, that might not be a good idea on a 250 MB cap.

    I am not quite sure but I am certain that 250 MB won't work.
