I bet people have already asked this, but the ability to sort by ZU in the teambuilder would be helpful. You can filter by every other usage tier (ZU is usage based right? It makes sense for it to be)
 
I think that it already does this if you are building a ZU team. It lists a bunch of PU Pokémon but under the header "Below PU".
 
Yea, i mean when you are building in other tiers. Like tier shift, where you want to use the lowest tier pokemon, but the builder doesn't know this and assumes you want OU mons. Yes you can filter by BST, but you are already able to filter by other tiers by typing in "OU" or "RU" so I don't know why it shouldn't be the same for Below PU

How can I play against BOT like FutureSightAI on pokemon showdown?
PS doesn’t natively support bot challenges, so if and how you can challenge bots entirely depends on how the bot owner has configured their bot.

Typically you can contact the bot owner to get this information, but in the case of FutureSightAI there’s a thread detailing exactly how to challenge it that I found after about 5 seconds of research.
 
why are mew latios and latias banned in gen 3?
mew has got the exact same stats as jiarchi and celebi,which are not banned.
and latios and latias aren't that powerful without the soul dew,so why not ban the soul dew instead of banning these two?

Hi! This thread is for questions more specifically related to the simulator rather than Smogon tiering decisions. The ADV [Gen 3] Smogon subforum has a thread similar to this one where probably you'll get a faster answer and with more quality than here. Also, if you want a more fluid debate about Mew, Latios and Latias in ADV, you can go to the RoA room on PS! and inquiry about them there.

Is it possible to have a battle where you give a Pokemon a different type to its usual one, either through commands or doing something in the teambuilder then playing a custom game?

Camomons allows you to change a Pokémon's type to that of its first two moves. Other than that the only other type-changing format that I can think of was Type Control (which gave you full control over its type) but that was back in Gen 6.

If you have one of those questions, great! Just scan over this list first:
  1. Make sure it's related to the Pokemon Showdown simulator. In-game questions go in Orange Islands, while battling questions are more suited to the relevant Smogon Metagames subforum.
  2. Google is a cool resource - try searching there first. It only takes a matter of seconds, and might resolve your issue quickly without resorting to this thread.
  3. If you're new to Smogon in general, the Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread thread is the perfect place to find your feet.
  4. There's some good stuff on the sim page on the PS site - including a general FAQ and staff FAQ.
Answering a question? Some tips:
  1. Even if it's a really basic question, it'd be awesome if you could provide a very brief explanation to prevent the need for further questions.
  2. Please quote the question you're replying to, to avoid confusion.
Is there any way I can start a new meta game like the one for Radical Red? I've come u0 a list of alternate Pokemon stats and I was thinking about turning it into an actual meta game. Would any of you know how I could do that?
 
Not being able to log in without the correct password is the point of a password system.
sorry I phrased that really bad lol. I can't log in because my password isn't working, but I didn't change it. Is there a way to reset it without logging in? my bad

Hi, do you know where I can get information as to how usage stats are compiled? I've been curious as to how the data is gotten for some time now and couldn't really wrap my head around on how it is collected.

The list of formats is the same, the difference is that there are more formats available when you directly challenge a specific player - these do not have their own ladder due to lack of interest from the playerbase.
 
why does my PS avatar keep resetting to default? Shouldn't my selection be stored in PS' database where it would be permanent until i choose to change it?

Avatar settings arent stored on the server at all, theyre stored in your localstorage with your teams, client settings, etc.
