  • considering pu has already been delayed by a month, isn't it perhaps a possibility to collect usage stats mid-month and add those up to the june stats to roughly get a month's worth of usage stats with which pu can come into existence?

    the pu tier already has a bit of a legitimacy problem due to exclusion from major tournaments and this constant delay only adds to the feeling that smogon doesn't care about pu or its players even though it is an official tier

    I actually just came here to pitch this as well. NU Beta did collect stats from the 8th to the 23rd of June and since the 3rd of July, meaning theoretically we could have a full month of NU Beta stats in 9 days of collected stats if this is considered.

    I agree with this idea, but if mid-month stats are not possible is there anyway we can just use the incomplete stats? 20 days of stats to work on is not great, but it is not that much less than 30, and any Alpha meta is bound to be a mess anyway. PU at this point cares less about being totally accurate than just getting started. I know 1 month is not a long wait time but it is frustrating to the playerbase when you have to wait much longer than any other tier.
    Hey man can you give me the LC usage stats. I need them for the article I'm writing since the format makes it helpful. If its easier to do individual mons, all I need are Pancham, Magnemite, Mareanie and Foongus in Gen 7 LC. This isn't that pressing, but I would appreciate getting this in a timely matter. Thanks if you do, thanks if you don't.

    I was more looking for the June stats, as those seem to be May with the "2017-5"

    Stats are always a month behind. June stats won't be posted until beginning of July.

    Ok thanks
    Will you be running Ubers / LC / DOU stats?
    Antar
    Antar
    By request of TL only. So Ubers probably not (because there's no such thing as Ubers UU). I assume I'll be doing DOU/DUU. I have no idea what the Gen 7 LC community looks like.

    Well I'm not a TL any more so I can't officially request it but DUU does have a small following and we'd love the DOU stats regardless, so if it isn't too difficult we'd all appreciate it :D
    Hello, Antar. I'd just like to thank you for dedicating so much time to extracting the usage stats after all the trouble you've been facing. Keep up the great work.
    Honestly man thanks for all the work you do with stats and stuff we'd be lost in this world without you
    What are all the kinds of stats that you guys track? The only ones I know of are Pokemon usage stats for each format, item, ability, and move usage stats for each Pokemon for each format, and playstyle usage stats for each format. Are there any that I missed? Can you give me URLs for all the stats on smogon.com/stats?

    Just poke around in the folder. It's all pretty self-explanatory.

    Thanks. I found everything I was looking for.
    idk if it would have an effect on your process, but the ps main servers have been insufferably slow the past two days. it takes over a minute for battles to load etc. could explain why it was taking a while for your stats

    Thanks for the info. I suspected as much.
    Hey, I just now recently found out who the guy behind our usage stats is :P Just wanted to say thanks a lot and keep up the awesome work, it's a massive help for everyone!
    I'd love it if you came back to YT for S/M LC / OU. Really miss your content!

    Thanks! It won't happen anytime soon, I'm afraid...
    Hey, will there be a metagame in Gen7 in which the banned Megastones would be available to use?
    Antar
    Antar
    No idea. Not my department.

    Ok, do you know who´s in charge of that?
    In your 'Gen 7 OU usage stats' list, after around spot 70 there seems to be several Pokemon unavailable in Sun/Moon showing up on the list, such as Landorus and Genesect. was this due to an oversight or were they actually accidentally allowed for a small period of time?

    They were actually allowed for a small period of time
    hey, is there an easy way to get usage information for "other" for individual pokemon? such as what the breakdown of "other moves" are for certain pokemon.
    Antar
    Antar
    Check the JSON files located in the "chaos" subfolders.
    Do you think there's anything useful in the usage stats of random formats? I was thinking that higher usage of Pokemon in the higher weighted stats might indicate that those Pokemon are slightly better than average, at least in that format.
    Antar

    That's definitely one avenue to explore. The other is to use the moveset stats as a reference for what sets PS puts together (although you could always just read through the PS datafiles for that...)

    Yeah, I know about the movesets being stored in formats-data.js, but now that you mention it, looking at the actual frequency of certain moves compared to others could be interesting...
    Stats question, how hard is it to produce individual Pokemon winrates? If this is something that just so happens to be extremely trivial and not time consuming for you to do, I was mostly asking because I was interesting in looking at pokebankou-1825 winrates. Additionally, if this is something I can dig out from the jsons myself, I wouldn't mind being told where to look.
    Antar

    Actual winrate is a horrible metric, because the PS ladder does matchmaking. In an ideal world, no matter your skill, your actual winrate would be 50%. At one point I posted avg. GXE, but all that tells you is how popular a mon is with newbs. You should look into my viability ceiling analysis. It might scratch a similar itch.

    Yes, yet every single team based game has shown "50% winrate" is an objectively false statement, and is not whatsoever based in the grounds of reality. I'm quite aware of the contexts and limits of individual Pokemon winrates, and I'm still interested in analyzing them anyways. If it's something you could very trivially do, or tell me how to find, I'd very much appreciate it.
    pardon me if I'm wasting your time but is there any way to find november stats for other metagames at the moment (vgc2017 in particular)?
    so everything from aegislash to hippodown is OU now? aegislash got banned so alolan ninetales take the last place in the OU tier? or we get only 50 ? sry idk exactly how to ask what i'm trying to ask
    Antar
    Antar
    No. Tiers don't get updated until next month. Probably I'm not even going to use November's data in doing the tiering, since there was the Aegislash suspect test and all the new-gen hype.
