The generator tries to avoid generating too many Ubers but it only reduces the chance of 3 or more Ubers by 80%, so it's still mathematically possible.
Thanks, is there somewhere that details how the generator works? I've been wondering about that, recently?
 
Dunno how often this gets brought up, but is there a reason why the new USUM mons (Necrozma forms and new UBs) don't have their cries on Showdown yet? Games have been out for close to half a year, so I'm really curious.

Is about 1400 Elo good for Gen7 Ubers?
If you're looking for a measure of skill ELO isn't the right way to look at it so we couldn't really give you an answer. However, if you look at your GXE/Glicko which tells you the percentage rate of your win chance against someone else on the ladder then that is a better way to measure your skill. I'd say roughly around 80%+ GXE shows that you're a decent enough in the said tier, this can vary though.
 
Is there a way to enable notifications (for PMs/highlights) for the downloaded version of PS? I'm on mac and for most apps it's done by clicking preferences, but I can't for PS.
 
I'm curious...

PS! allows posting in chatrooms without registration and without going through a captcha.

On my intuition, such a situation would be an open invitation for spambots advertising shady weight loss pills.

Yet this is not the case. The help chatroom is not being spammed with those.

How? Does PS! take additional invisible anti-bot measures, or are bots simply too stupid to (a) choose a name (b) enter the chatroom (c) spam?

Most ways for bots to connect to PS are blocked automatically
 
So i asked this a while ago and it went unanswered, so i figured i ask again. How would i go about using <audiocontrols> in my roomintro? I've tried multiple times and i'm having trouble getting it to work. Idk if it's a Chrome thing or what but a long time ago The Happy Place had audio in there which i thought was p cool. It'd be perfect for my room, so if anyone can help me please that would be very, very much appreciated.

Probably because no one has bothered taking them and donate them to the PS Developer team/adding them

I'd have to wonder about that, since the games were thoroughly datamined (with the data dumped on this site, no less) before their official release date. I was able to easily find sound files of the cries with a quick Google search, so... yeah.

I presume again that PS won't be plagiarising from other sites and such

Wrong assumptions

Long story short, life happened and I forgot to convert these

When will we have colour coding in the teambuilder on Showdown ? / An option to only use XY sprites for the team builder and not in game ?

Okay, so I was scrolling through this because that's what I like to do with my free time, and I noticed that the stuff in that file doesn't always exactly match the outputs of Showdown!'s /ds command. For example, /ds automatically excludes CAP Pokemon (and Missingno., no idea why it's even there in the first place), includes pre-evolution moves (it says Butterfree learns iron defense even though the learnsets file says otherwise), and includes moves only learned from sketch. What are all of those exceptions or adjustments that /ds makes after reading that file? Or does it not read that file at all and get its information from somewhere else?
