    Allow searching by egg groups in /ds please, it makes it much easier to find out what father I need for egg moves.

    I made this post 20 days ago and did not get an answer so I would like to resubmit for the same reason as above. Furthermore I think a way to reverse the dark mode change that was made recently (the room buttons at the top, me and a few others really liked it beforehand).

    This is what I mean (open)


    Notice how the PM in the box had strikethrough but the one in the chat didn't

    Hello, what do u think about a " friendslist " who allow us to see when our friends are connected. Of course they have to be mutually friends.
    0Nl adds X
    X adds 0Nl
    If X is connected 0Nl can see him from his friendlist

    Next, a " black list " where u can put ur enemies. This "blacklist" makes you automatically ignore your enemies as long as they are in the "blacklist"

    sorry if you dont understand me, I'm not a native English-speaker

    A user known as "Haraam bae" asked me to post this for them because they don't have a forum account

    [15:00:45] Haraam bae: can i just simply filter the tour list to list those that will start soon. pls?

    In other words, changing or adding a feature the /tours command so that it can list tours that are still in signups.

    How about some changes to the popup speed display that shows when you hover over an opposing pokemon:
    • show scarfed max/macho brace min speed in addition to ordinary speed ranges
    • limit speed ranges to what that pokemon has been outsped by/has outsped, adjusted by known modifiers (e.g. if my 262 speed breloom goes before a gengar, but my 236 speed tentacruel goes after, instead of showing "202 to 350 Spe (before items/abilities/modifiers)" on the gengar, show "202 to 350 Spe (before items/abilities/modifiers: 236-262 min/max)" or something similar)
    also, a little more niche:
    • if an opposing pokemon outspeeds a pokemon with a speed higher than the opponents max speed, show choice scarf as the item instead of (exists)
    • if an opposing pokemon is outsped by a pokemon with a speed lower than its min speed, show iron ball/macho brace as the item instead of (exists)
    • if a pokemon uses/loses an item and outspeeds a pokemon with a speed higher than its max speed, show unburden as the ability
    • if a pokemon is known to not have a choice scarf, and outspeeds a pokemon with a speed higher than its max speed in sunlight/rain/sand/when statused/with a flying move/with a status move, show chlorophyll/swift swim/sand rush/quick feet/gale wings/prankster as its ability
    I am aware this will probably be difficult, especially with things like prankster and gale wings, but it would also be really helpful

    It's hard for the client to make that conclusion in general. There are too many exceptions where turn order isn't determined by the speed stat alone, such as priority moves; abilities like Prankster and Gale Wings, and items such as lagging tail.

    There are a few Pokemon that are supposed to have different cries for their different forms, but those cries have not been implemented in PS yet. Those Pokemon are:
    All Mega Evolutions
    Primal Groudon & Kyogre
    Sky Shaymin
    Therian Tornadus, Thundurus, & Landorus (this bugs me because the latter is OU)
    Black & White Kyurem
    AZ's Floette (or at least Veekun's Pokedex says so)
    Super Size Pumpkaboo & Gourgeist
    Hoopa Unbound
    So if you guys could make this happen, that's be great. As a heads-up, it looks that at least Lycanroc will have this as well, so don't forget to be on the lookout for form-specific cries in 7th gen Pokemon as well.

    Would it be at all possible to set your own most used items and add moves to the usable moves list? I frequently use things from outside these lists and i'd like to be able to customise these to fit my needs a little better. It seems like a fairly minor UI change.

    A Notes Tab

    • Have you ever been in a battle, and you lost because of something that you forgot?
    • Has there ever been that moment where there's something that'd you like to jot down? Perhaps you're fighting a team with Zoroark, and you want to jot down its gender and item to remember if it's Zoroark.
    • Have you ever wanted to remember a specific calc mid-battle for future battles / later on in the battle?
    All three of these questions prompted me to suggest this.

    Here's how it works:
    • You can press a button mid-battle OR in your teambuilder to store notes. You'll have the ability to save your notes, which would be stored in your cookies as your teams are. If you do not save them, the notes will disappear after you leave a battle (and it expires!) or close your tab / window.
    • You'd be able to type a maximum of 500 characters, since notes shouldn't be essays.
    • Whenever you press the appropriate button for notes, it will load the all saved notes (they'd be clickable, so you can load them as fast your Internet wants you to) and your current one.
    • Opponents and spectators cannot see your notes, of course (unless you copy/paste them for some reason lol).
    • If you delete your cookies / clear your history, your notes will be gone because that's where they're stored!
    Pros & Cons:

    Pros -

    • A quick, easy way to store notes about a team or game.
    • It's user friendly, and unless PS! fucks up somehow, you're safe to have your notes stored.
    • You can remember things easily.
    Cons -
    • If you clear your history or whatever, your notes are long gone!
    • There are existing things like this (Notepad, Pastebin, etc.); it's just that this would be built in to PS!.

    About the whole "Notepad exists!..." thing, it's built in to Showdown, so it's a bit more convenient than having to go to a completely separate tab or window.

    why does this sound like some commercial or ad lmao

    I see where you're coming from, but don't think myself that it would be worth implementing: not only do pastebin/notepad (and even more convenient things like piratepad) exist, but you can make pseudo-notes by pm-ing them to yourself (/w yourname, message)

    Considering how many queries I see about deleted teams, I'd trust things like pastebin/ppad more for important things (these services also aren't restricted to a certain device, while PS notes would be), and don't see how PM-ing yourself and/or piratepad don't solve the convenience problem.

    I get how this could be more user friendly than pm-ing yourself, but unless the button obnoxiously jumped out at you it probably would still be missed by many, and the deleted teams/cookies concerns and that-device restriction hamper the user-friendliness of such an idea further.

    I know this change was to help newer players, but can pokemon showdown be more like wifi, for example, you cannont see moves your opponent has used without
    scrolling up, and you have to keep track of team preview, kinda like pokemon online, where team preview isn't visible unless you type it or scroll up.

    Could I suggest that, after Mega Evolving one Pokémon, instead of the mega evolution button simply disappearing for other Pokémon on the same team holding a mega stone, a message appears in the button's place explaining that one may only Mega Evolve one Pokémon per battle? I feel it'd be helpful for newer players, and with Z-Moves coming soon which have very similar mechanics, this will become much more relevant as people get used to the new game mechanics.

    Can we add a Gamemode for those who want to battle better AI of the Gym Leaders and Elite Four/Champion of each generation?

    Not sure what you mean by "better battle AI", mainly because you're always facing other people in PS.

    Since we can filter Pokemon by tier in the teambuilder, how about having one for items/berries as well? (E.G. items/berries allowed in OU, UU, etc.) It can also apply for clauses as well, such as the Endless Battle clause.

    IDK if this has been suggested yet or not but imo it'd be a good idea to be able to minimize large commands like /help trivia, huge /ds results or other such commands that take up the screen. Exiting and entering the rooms is annoying, as I then can't scroll up far to see the chat or see moderator actions.

    Can we make the timer 90 sec instead of 150 sec? 2 mins and 30 sec is just too long for casual/ladder game.

    could an addition be made to the bots to automatically redirect a person to a room of their language if it detects a language other than the language being spoken in that room?

    Could it be possible to be able to "mute" certain rooms? For example, they wouldn't turn orange when people talk and you would not get HL'ed or notified by them. You could still be able to join the room and see chat and HLs normally, you just wouldn't be notified when you are HL'ed from said room (I'm only suggesting this because a certain room uses one of my HLs quite often and I don't want to leave the room, but I don't always participate in said room).

    You would have to ask the bot's creator or owner to implement that feature. Personally, I'm not sure if bots are even able to detect if someone is speaking in another language.

    I have a suggestion to make the guessing commands for the '/hangman create' script '/g' just since it's easier to type out than that of '/guess'.

    I'd like to see more randomized metas make it to the regular selection screen as opposed to the 5 or so that are DC only. Double and Triple Hackmons, Monotype.

    Random allows us to have so much more fun.
