  • Why do you still use 20:3:1 weighting? Is there any way to change this policy?
    Marty
    Marty
    Because it was decided near the beginning of this year to close out the gen with it in that policy review thread. Doesn't make sense to move the goalposts a few months away from Gen 8. There will be adjustments coming soon™.

    Can Smogon make changes that become effective during Generation 8?
    Hello, are you in charge of the usage stats now? If not, can you link me to the person?

    Hi, yes I am.
    Hey, are you the Pokémon Showdown programmer? Because I would like to offer you a commercial request.
    Hey I was wondering if there's a way to get additional stats from the ladder usage stats? Like for ex: the most common scarfers, the most common rockers, etc.

    What I was thinking of was like a list (just using choice scarf as an example) that showed like this below

    Most common choice scarf users (IE: out of all choice scarf used on ladder, Lando was the mon players put choice scarf on the most)
    =====================
    1: Lando
    2: Keldeo
    3: etc.

    No I get that, but how do you determine what's more common than anything else? Raw count * percentage of Scarf usage on that Pokemon? Something else?
    Aurella
    Aurella
    I would just go by raw count personally but the TL might have a more nuanced opinion than that.
    hi, lc uu has been picking up lately I was wondering if you could include LC in the monthly tier shift post and weigh the stats. It would be really helpful. Thanks in advance
    Marty
    Marty
    Sure, but without having LC UU on PS anymore, the best I can do for now is give a banlist based on that month's usage cutoff. Between tier shifts, you'd have to figure out quick drops based on what Pokemon are missing from the banlist from the month before (and ignore suddenly new Pokemon in the banlist since quick rises aren't a thing). I'll update the last few usage posts with an LC UU banlist to give you an idea.

    Thanks! What's done now is fine
    (Sorry for the spam haha)

    The other day on ladder I switched in a mon to fully sack it to hazards hoping that the opposing medicham's HJK would inflict crash damage. I switched the mon in and it died, but the message that came up when he HJK'd was "but it failed!" (no crash damage occurred)

    Is it supposed to be like that? Cause explosion can still set off even if a mon was switched in to get sacked to hazards.
    Marty
    Marty
    Yes, no target Jump Kicks aren't considered misses. In Gen 4, no target Explosion also failed instead of knocking the user out.
    Hi Marty I recently tested psychic terrain interactions with custap berry + quick claw and just wanted to double check if these conclusions were cartridge consistent:

    1: quick claw enhanced attacks can still hit grounded targets protected by psychic terrain
    2: custap berry enhanced attacks can also still hit grounded foes in psy-terrain

    Custap Berry and Quick Claw don't grant priority, so yes those are intended interactions.

    The competition just started today; they never give out the participation prize until weeks after it's over. To get a Shiny Tapu Lele code at all, "eligible players must earn a place in the rankings by completing at least three battles."

    Oh whoops, my b. I'll be sure to let u know as soon as ppl start receiving shiny lele.

    Hi, see my instructions in the comment directly below this one.
    Hi Marty, I forgot my pokemon showdown password and I want to know if I can create a new password because I had some pokemon that had already won battles, to verify that it was my account I will tell you some of my pokemon: umbreon (shiny), espeon, leafeon (shiny), glaceon (shiny), sylveon (shiny) and vaporeon (i think shiny). I would like very much if you could help me. Thank you.

    thanks : )
    Your pronunciation for your name "Radiantler" doesn't match your IPA transcription of it. It looks like you want it to be pronounced /reɪdiæntlər/. The symbols you used for long vowel sounds are the same as the short vowels but are literally longer, as in they are pronounced for a longer duration of time
    Marty
    Marty
    Ah, now that I look at an actual phonetic transcription tool I see that trusting Google on this is bad. Thanks for pointing it out, I'll double check my other submission too.
