With the release of English Pokemon B/W, Smogon has in recent days received a massive influx of visitors, leading to general lagginess in the forums as well as the site as a whole; in worst cases the site just plain refuses to load. While in the past we would rely on our supply of Voltorbs and Electrodes to give the site's capabilities a boost, it has failed spectacularly on this occasion. Some young hoodlum has been battling the Electric Pokemon and causing them to explode and faint, leading to the laggy site problems you experience today.

Our plan of using the Smogcast to induce evolution in Magikarps has had to be put on hold as well. As it is, during peak hours Smogon is a frustration to navigate, which is no doubt very bad publicity for the site, and tarnishes our image as the leaders of competitive Pokemon. Something must be done to rectify this power supply problem, we can't rely on revenue from selling Slowpoke tails forever. User Firestorm has recommended that we switch our power supply to the more stable and non-explosive Pikachu, but we all know what a bitch they are to catch. RBG has suggested that we use the significantly more powerful Electivire, but where you'd find an Electirizer is anyone's guess. Does anybody have any ideas on how we can get this site running smoothly again?
