    Metagame Shared Power

    I think there could be broadly two possible directions:- 1. If the meta aims to become balanced, continue with fast and heavy quickbans. This strategy might take more than one month to succeed, but I believe it eventually will, since many abilities have inherently limited value or potential...

    Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    This does seem to be a bug. This change today, (correctly) made Plates deprecated in standard metas:- https://github.com/smogon/pokemon-showdown/commit/64d42624b83d00251d3b08d7f62dcbb0284fa32e However, Plates are items that apparently should be reinstated by Nat Dex:-...

    OM Mashup Megathread

    Good news! It seems that Showdown has added a new feature today which can enable players to directly challenge and play mashup games (i.e. without needing to create a private room and start a tournament in it):- Here is an example of using data from the CAAAmomons tour code to challenge...

    Tournament STABmons + Almost Any Ability Tour [Won by MultiAmmiratore]

    Sorry about that, I must have copied it from AAA bans. This should be fixed now.

    Tournament STABmons + Almost Any Ability Tour [Won by MultiAmmiratore]

    In! I just updated the bans so that the validator should match the latest version of the tour code (if anybody finds a problem, please PM me and I will try to fix it as soon as possible). I had reports that, along with other side-servers, in recent months replay uploading has sometimes...

    Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    Zacian and Zamazenta behave differently in Balanced Hackmons and Pure Hackmons even though both formats are supposed to simulate the same on-cart behaviour. I'm not 100% certain that this is a bug, but at this point I am like...97.456% certain that it is (though I don't know which format's...

    Metagame Pure Hackmons

    Perhaps, but I'm not sure if this fully explains it. The custom behaviour seems to have been changed to cover the itemless case Ransei mentioned, while the with-item case retains the forced forme change, making the distinction between the two seem to be considered and intentional. Or was the...

    Metagame Pure Hackmons

    Congrats to PH on finally getting a ladder on main again! There is something related to this happening with the Hackmons metas currently that seems strange and inexplicable to me. Although the above change seems to have been made effective in BH a few days ago, and always has been applied in...

    RIP, I probably would support something like that. Was it not allowed to be posted there?

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Boom Boom Pow

    I remember this specific idea being brought up during the discussions about what should be tested. As termi said, the primary reason this will have been rejected is that it's a very complex ban, and, regardless, the suspect scope was already locked down as soon as this topic was created...

    Metagame Suicide Cup

    Okay, Gen 8 Suicide Cup and National Dex Suicide Cup ladders have been added to the TrashChannel server. Suicide Cup Random Battle has not been optimised for Gen 8 (I don't even know a lot of the new moves and abilities yet) but since it sources from vanilla [Gen 8] Random Battle team...

    Metagame Suicide Cup

    Some good and bad news recently for Suicide Cup. The good news is that Unofficial Metagames's reign of terror highly respected tenure has come to an end, and Suicide Cup has been returned to OM status! This means, among other things, that it is allowed to be nominated for OMotM again. Many...

    Metagame Workshop

    Coincidentally, I was thinking about making an unofficial OM very similar to this, but only allowing the stat boosts from official Gigantamax formes as the basis for deltas, and not changing move legality. (I didn't see specific info on Gigatamax stats yet, and this might not work very well if...

    M&M Mix and Mega

    Many people in the OM Room chat seem to be doomily convinced that Mix and Mega will and must become a Pet Mod in Gen 8, but I couldn't source this to any announcement, and by itself I found it a highly confusing conclusion to jump to. Even as somebody who doesn't particularly play vanilla MnM...

    Minor bug that occurred after today's server restart. https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7hackmonscup-1009575434 On turn 10, Bellsprout's Dancer shows its activation message after being KO'd by Fiery Dance (although it thankfully isn't able to actually copy the attack).

    OM Mashup Megathread

    The list of users with reqs seems to be missing Mark_K (and me >_<). BAN ABSOL, BAN METAGROSS Absol was already debatably ban-worthy in the old TSAAA meta (with HP-boosted bulk). Now, icemaster has well covered how between Play Rough, Fire Blast and Z Iron Tail coverage, on top of everything...

    All Gens Old Gen Hackmons Megathread

    People in Old Shark chat mentioned that in addition to the ability-locking behaviour in Gen 3 Hackmons, it also shouldn't be possible to use multiple Deoxys formes on the same team due to cart restrictions. This could be enforced in a tour code like this:-

    OM Mashup Megathread

    Some were users were asking for a version of STAAABmons that restricts abilities and moves in the same way as the base metas and STAB n Mega rather than completely banning them, in particular so that Imposter Ditto could be used. We tested this expanded code in a tour earlier today, and it...
