    Happy 10th Smogon anniversary. Always a treat to discover long-time contributors who put so much into the site and keep finding time and motivation to make everyone's experience better. Tiering and so much more of the site owes a great deal to you and I've always been in awe of you, Marty!

    Wow, I logged in earlier and didn't even notice the date. Thank you so much for the kind words! Hearing that I've improved even one person's experience makes it all worth it! :blobthumbsup:
    Hey Marty, I saw that you were in charge of getting permission for using this package:
    https://www.npmjs.com/package/@smogon/sets

    Would it be possible to message you on Discord about that? My friend and I are building a new damage calc extension and we needed access to the latest Smogon sets if that's possible :)

    Could you refer me to where I can find the latest sets? Basically whatever data is fed into the Damage Calculator.

    Click the GitHub link at the bottom of the calculator page.

    Yup we ended up finding it after some more digging, thanks for the help Marty :)

    Thank you, sirs!
    Hi, bit of a “I’m curious” question - if you do chose, could you insert a mon pretty much anywhere in stats? Or would it be impossible to tamper with?
    Marty
    Marty
    Not sure what you mean exactly, but to falsify one Pokemon's stats you'd have to do it in every single file for that format; it would just be an obnoxious amount of effort.

    Ah, alright, that makes sense. Thank you!
    what’s a piece of advice for improving in the field of “not getting baited by trolls”?

    That message only makes sense to the people who had their posts deleted by replying to the troll post which was also deleted.

    Hi Marty, at the moment there are many Pokemon in the lower tiers that should belong to higher tiers. Thus, I suggest having full tier shifts and starting 3-month cycle from February to May, or even quick rises only on 1 Feb, will allow these Pokemon to rise to the tier where they belong, thereby better reflecting Smogon usage-based tiers as a whole.

    Hi, I've been pulling usage stats every two days this month and it's not actually as many Pokemon as you might think. Every time I check, a Pokemon disappears from the "full tier shift" list, so the tiers are balancing out nicely. A quick rise for the first month would be at 8.83%, and currently nothing relevant has reached that threshold. It's also poor form to be moving the goalposts at this point.

    Ok, thanks for the clarification.
    hi there! in the next usage stats update coming in a few months, would it be okay if you posted the zu usage stats? if not, would it be ok if i replied to the thread posting zu’s usage stats?
    viet noa
    viet noa
    admittedly though, the most i could probably do is just send a link to the usage stats. i don’t know how to make that stats table that you use, lol
    Marty
    Marty
    ZU stats come out with every other format when smogon.com/stats is updated. It takes much longer to run a whole month than for those 15-day shifts we did, so realistically this is never going to happen soon after I post the thread, because everything else is still processing for several hours after that. You can expect them to go up at some point on the first of the month, as usual.

    aw alrighty, tysm for letting me know!! :)
    I think Pokémon that were just unbanned from a tier shouldn’t drop down on the same month. RU has become a huge dumpster-fire thanks to Pokémon that were just unbanned dropping.
    Marty
    Marty
    Under normal circumstances I agree, but they were unbanned at the exact same time UU got its drops from OU, so it's representative of the current meta.

    Just watch everything rise back up.
    hi! i was wondering if there was a way to view stats for random battles because i wanted to see how many battles there are per month like the other metas and also if for some reason a certain pokemon gets loaded more often than the others
    Marty
    Marty
    Sorry, random formats are explicitly excluded from having the stats scripts run on them because it almost doubles the time it takes, and the data is mostly useless anyway. The most that ever happens is running partial scripts on one or two days for rebalancing purposes.
    How'd you make Teddimajor? Did you use some online combiner tool or did you sprite it yourself. It was really funny and a remarkably good sprite.
    Marty
    Marty
    Thanks! I found that Beartic's arms worked well with Ursaring's sprite without much effort. Then I wanted to replace the head but Teddiursa sprites mostly have it tilted or with its paw in its mouth, so I just used the ears and kept Ursaring's face which turned out funnier. Lastly I took Pangoro's bamboo shoot from the Gen 5 style sprite on PS and called it a day. Used nothing but MS Paint, took about 15 minutes.
