    This is very nice. aesoft is a great programmer so far that I see in the Pokemon Showdown and his awesome Pokemon Online Replay Viewer. I hope that aesoft will make the Program public (soon as finished). I would really like to see all the details that is includes.

    The UI is going to be fucking awesome, I just can't wait for this. Also, what is the max amount of battles you can be in?

    So is this going to be completely open source? Where will it be posted?
    Also, just out of curiosity, what are you building this in?

    Great work aesoft, looks really good. Despite some minor bugs (which i'm sure will be fixed in time), this truly is excellent.

    One bug I noticed (I think): After your Pokemon gets a new item through Trick, hovering over it still shows the original item (even though the effects of the new item are still there).

    That said, it looks amazing. Yesterday was probably the only time I battle Fatecrashers ever.

    DO WANT

    It looks a lot better than PO, can't wait. If I read correctly, it supports iPhone? Awesome, I'll be able to tell my friends that I can play Pokemon on my iPhone.

    Well it does look better than Pokemon Online (The Battles). But PO Supports Server, other stuff. But aesoft might add some of it. Neverknow >_<

    Reason this is better than PO: iOS support. animations. all though po was a very quick and honestly great simulator solution, i can't wait to have animations and play on my iphone. but a question: how are servers/hosts going to work? Is it going to be smogon only, or will there be other servers, too? just out of wonder.

    Anyone can run a server, although it'll be a bit harder than setting up a PO server.
