I love Pokemon Showdown, but I do always feel that it lacks an important thing: a built in tool to take notes during team building. I usually forget the details of my pokemon's sets and other important things. I know that I have a ton of external software to do this, but its not the same to have it separated.
How could I propose this to the PS's developers?

Anyone know why this happens? I have several ubers teams but the team tab doesn't change from random. Refreshing only fixes this sometimes.

It seems to mostly just happen when selecting a format too quickly after letting the page load. Try switching to another format like OU and then switch back or waiting 5-10 seconds after refreshing and letting the page load, then select ubers.
 
A small question: when are the usage statistics for the months of November and December? This is because there have been new games (USUM) that delay the publication of stats?

Why is blaze baziken banned from UU/OU ?
speed boost isn’t broken on other pokemon like ninjask and yanmega, so there isn’t a reason to ban the ability like with arena trap. because of this, if blaze blaziken was to be allowed in ou, there would have to be a complex ban on blaziken + speed boost, which smogon tends to avoid
 
I'm aware showdown has a multiple alternative URLs such as sim.smogon.com-80.psim.us (I think that was one).
Could someone list all of them?

Also is there a way to connect to a showdown server not through psim.us? (for partially offline coding, blocked psim.us)
Specifically, I'd could use Pokemon-Showdown-Client-master's testclient.html instead of psim.us I think, but any server not localhost automatically goes through psim.us.

Thanks! ^-^

You can use testclient.html with other servers if you know their configured address (for long .psim.us names I think this is just the name without .psim.us but for registered servers you'd need to find it out another way); if you add ?~~ and the server's address to the URL then it will connect to that server instead. Note that it's possible that there are features not supported by the test client.

Hi, I laddered extensively under the alt "till i collapse" circa ~2013 and used it as my main suspect alt for uu/ru/ubers tests. I tried to log into it for the first time in several years last ru suspect round, but received the following message:

I'm not quite sure what it means; idk if old/inactive alts are archived, but if I could get the username back that'd be fantastic :blobthumbsup:

e: thank you friend!!

That means the account has been disabled, you will have to make an admin request in order to reclaim it.

Hello, I was wondering if it's possible to obtain a name on Showdown if the account has been inactive for years? I've always gone by this name, but unfortunately it's taken. They haven't been on in about 5 years.
