If you're thinking of making a topic that can be answered with one post, please post it here instead. New threads should be for discussion! When posting in this thread, follow the following guidelines: Your answers should contain at least a brief explanation, even if it was the simplest of questions. While answering Yes/No question, please quote the question you're referring to. It gets confusing otherwise. At least do a simple google search before asking the question here. This is already in the Smogon and Dragonspiral Tower forum rules, but I will reiterate again do not discuss ROMs or other illegal things. Do not ask for Action Replay or other external device codes. Use Google for that. Frequently Asked Questions What does [move / item / ability] do?

Why can't I select a Pokémon to replace a fainted in a Pokémon in a Triple Battle? First you have to select which Pokémon you want to have replaced. If multiple Pokémon fainted, the game doesn't know which Pokémon you want on which position. So what you have to do is first select one of your fainted pokemon, and then select which unfainted pokemon you want to replace it with.
