Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee were recently released and their system for Pokemon Battles is very different from that of previous Pokemon Games. Pokemon Showdown will have to be edited to play in this format. What I am concerned about is how Let's Go is still in the gen 7 family of games. Will it replace the USUM style of gameplay that is currently the main gen 7 format? I refuse to play in a meta that is missing abilities and items!

You can already battle in Let's Go! formats, it's in the second column of formats under Other Metagames.
As for the official competitions & tournaments, the main OU battles will still be held in USUM OU, and the whole tiering system still depends on the USUM metagame until further notice, it doesn't take Let's Go! into account.
 
Hey!

I just joined PS chat for the first time and get this:

"Due to spam from your internet provider, you can't speak except to staff. Logging into an account you've used a lot in the past will allow you to chat. "

I've never joined before or said anything. What can i do? I registered the name Bug Catcher Isaac
 
I couldn't find a better place to ask this, so here goes. As I'm sure every other eager fan does, I've been working on a pet mod, where I am having trouble with the graphical side. Does anybody know how they handle the sprites for Mix and Mega? I'm doing something similar (no new sprites involved) and I could only find spriteid in dex-data.js which I have been unable to successfully modify. Is that possible, whether it be through the deepClone used for Mix and Mega or a simpler option I'm overlooking?
 
When I attempt to access my private replays, I realised that saving a new replay will cause one of my older replays to not be viewable in the private tab, so I will not be able to access anything more than my past 50 games that I hid room with unless I have the link. Is there a way to view more than just my past 50 hidden replays without me having to save the link? Also, public games that are older than my past 50 hidden games are viewable in the private tab, is this a bug?
 
Okay I get the moderated chat system but I don't get the chat block on new accounts (had to make a new one on showdown because I couldn't remember the info for the old one)
Why does the moderated chat block new accounts from using the chat rooms?

I kinda stumbled upon the Showdown server by accident just now and decided to register. But apparently I'm not allowed to talk until I have won a Ladder battle. I can start a random battle but how do I start a Ladder battle?

A ladder battle is any battle started with the Battle! button, except for when it’s set to unrated random battles. Just set it to any tier besides than and win one to have fufilled that part of the requirement.
 
Is it possible to have a disabled account made open again? (ie I've wanted the account "Atmosphere" for awhile on sd, but it was disabled for some reason so I can't register it)

You can only get a disabled username if you're a badgeholder on Smogon (with some conditions) or a global staff member/contributor on PS (with conditions as well).
 
Just wanted to ask for how long a replay will be saved? Forever?!
They should be saved as long as someone doesn't mess with the replay server. I have 5 year old replays that I can still view.
If you were to EVER put MINUN into a singles 6v6, how would you build him? :( plz help
I don't think this is the place for competitive battling discussion. Try asking in the SQSA threads in the Smogon Competitive Forums.

By any chance can this database include leveling rates (or growth rates or experience types or whatever they're called)?
 
This question will probably be brushed off, but is there a thread or other method to request Global Voice status? I'm not asking to be a staff member. My Showdown account is "eddy22" and I have been playing since 2012. I never made an account on these forums until now, but I've been active on Showdown since 2012 and often get in groupchats or battles where modchat gets set to +, and get no response from messaging the room owners. I have never been warned/muted/committed any infractions.

Any pointers would be appreciated. Thank you!
