    A main suggestion I would have is to have like a bar at the top f the lobbychat to display a moderator created message to prevent lobbychat spam of people answering the same question over and over

    Example: Smogon is down
    Example: We are experiencing slight lag.
    Example: we are on modchat due to _______

    Just to prevent the mass of questions whenever something happens.

    Hey, my name is the same on these Forums as in PS.

    OU Monotype has been great, but Tiershift really allows the lower tier pokemon to shine. Is it possible to make a Tiershift Monotype tier?

    Thanks, Owlis

    You can propose this by PM'ing the idea to Articblast, with permission from the creators of Monotype and Tier Shift, of course. When you get all of their permissions, you can post this in the OM forum and potentially make it a reality. Please do not post there until you have their OK though. Hopefully this helps you.

    Just wondering, how would the Calc automatically know the EVs of the opponent Pokemon? You can't do an accurate calculation without the opponent EVs.

    A suggestion of mine is to show alternate forms of Gastrodon, Wormadam, etc. So far, we only have West Gastrodon (the one that looks stupid).

    in /data of a pokemon add things like height and weight, i know its a huge undertaking, but it helps when people are using moves like grass knot and low kick.

    This would probably be very difficult to implement and would likely not be worth the minuscule amount of time it saves.
    A previous implementation of East Sea Gastrodon was bugged and has not been re-added as a result. All other Pokemon with alternate forms are implemented properly except for Unown.

    As it is, Tier Shift has a really small playerbase, and it's really quite difficult to find battles on the ladder already. Splitting up the Tier Shift players into two different tiers would make finding battles even more difficult. Besides, if we were to implement another Monotype ladder it would have to be for a regular tier like UU or Ubers; a Monotype tier for an Other Metagame can just seem weird and kind of out of place.

    Hi there, I was wondering if Showdown could implement a /irc or !irc command. Smogon's IRC channels are really cool and are a great way to meet fellow battlers. You can even learn quite a bit of knowledge from the pros-I know I have in #Ubers.

    I think a simple command like this would be a good way to increase the IRC channels' popularity and size. It could be like the !CAP command, giving a link with an introduction, a link to the IRC tutorial, and possibly, a link to Mibbit. I've tried to promote IRC on Showdown, and it seems many people want to get into it. It could be cool if this idea happened, but it's not the end of the world if it can't happen.

    Thanks for your time :)

    It would be great if we could get blaze kick Genesect. He gets it with a hasty nature, in fact, the event is going on right now =S

    IRC staff (#pokemon) is currently hesitant about advertising their channel via mibbit links. If I were you I'd be sure that channels want to be linked in PS chat before suggesting them. If you message me Saturday night when I get home from working at camp i'll see what I can do to help.

    I know that one of our staff members is working on a chat command similar to this, so keep an eye out for that!

    The event has been added to the server. I've been using it recently. I don't think the team builder has been updated to show that Blaze Kick, Shift Gear and Extreme Speed are legal for it. I will talk to Zarel and see if he can update that but for now you can make the set and play with it without any issues.

    Are you guys ever planning on permanently releasing the PU metagame into the other metagames section like you did for 1v1? If I remember right, that was a pretty popular metagame, and I myself really enjoyed it.

    I'm not sure why 1v1 got a permanent ladder (popularity?), but I remember that Tier Shift was added as a permanent ladder because Zarel liked it. Hopefully Monotype will also get a permanent ladder so people can stop bitching about the lack of a monotype ladder, but after an OMotM metagame's time is up it is (normally) removed so another metagame can have its time in the limelight.

    I'm not sure how difficult this would be to implement or if it's already been suggested, but is there anyway we can add a bot of some sort to test teams? I'm really tired of making alts to ladder with when I get screwed over because someone is using their favorite Pokemon on the OU ladder rather than an actual competitive team and I'm weak to some crap like Wailord. It'd be highly helpful for people who want to quickly try out additions to a team they posted on RMT, for example. I don't know how difficult it'd be to begin with, but if it's not too much trouble could it just take a recently used team off of someone who's rating is above 1850 on the ladder (and won so people can't ladder up and troll the bot with a team of magikarps and co) or if it's easier have around 5-10 teams implemented that would actually see competitive use? This would be a huge time saver for me personally and I figure it has some uses that could be beneficial to other people too.

    User david stone is working on a Pokemon bot called Technical Machine. If you're ever on #showdown, he might be on as well, and you can send him a PM and ask about it.

    I don't know if this has been suggested and/or rejected or not, but is it possible to show the stats of your Pokemon when you hover over them during a battle? PO has this feature and its really helpful.

    Idk if this has been suggested before but I think a Recommended Items section for each Pokemon, similar to the Recommended Moves, would be useful. This saves time from having to look through the list/type common items like Leftovers, Life Orb, Choice, etc.

    I'd love to contribute to this if it does get implemented.

    I would also spend time contributing to it! Infact a recommended abilities one would make sense too but there's not that many abilities to pick from so idk... either way, i'd help out and make sure it doesnt turn out as silly as the suggest movesets =p
