    Hi, I've created a shortcut app for Smogon, It adds a Smogon Icon to the new tab page in Google Chrome, not sure if this has been done before though, so hope this helps you guys.

    The .crx file will not install automatically because its not in teh web-store.
    What you need to do is download the .crx file put it on your desktop and then
    go back into Google Chrome and click the little wrench icon at the side and go to Tools > Extensions. When there check developer mode at the top and then drag and drop the file from your desktop onto Google Chrome and you are done !

    I'm probably going to sound like a smart-ass asking this (I don't mean to I just don't have any other way to ask it!), but how is this a shortcut when I can just have smogon.com/forums as a bookmark? Am I missing something or...?

    Pokemon Showdown has an app for Google Chrome. I could just as easily make it a bookmark, but I prefer not to. I think this is just a personal preference thing.

    This makes it look like a chrome app, more for decoration really it just looks nice though. Plus it doesn't take up any space at your bookmark bar.

    for ios just go on safari, tap the arrow button (the one which comes up with all the options including add bookmark) and tap add to home screen
    Don't know about android
