I would like a better understanding on how to read the usage stats. To better explain what I mean, I'm looking at the pages for Monotype, and I'm not 100% sure what the numbers next to the dates are. Is that the number of players sampled, or number of Pokemon, or some other metric?
 
Hi,

I've done some browsing but i am unable to find an answer to this question.
Am i allowed to run a bot that plays pokemon showdown matches 24/7? I'm talking about a bot that plays 1 match at a time. I am interested in deploying a machine learning algorhythm to create a battling AI.

Thanks.

Yeah it's allowed, some existing bots already to that. Perhaps just avoid making it too obvious that it's a bot (ie making too many battles at once or always saying the same things) else everyone and their mother might end up bothering global staff about it

Your allowed, just don't throw matches (eg: purposefully boost other's ladder scores). Or otherwise cause trouble (dont cause it to break chat/name rules).
 
Hi, I'm sorry for asking this question here. I know this is the suggestions forum but I didn't really know where to ask it as the simple questions thread on the forums didn't really seem appropriate.

On a .json version of a replay how can I translate the number representing the upload time into an actual date and time?

Example (Replays linked):

"uploadtime":1562148447,"views":13,"p1id":"0ztekin219","p2id":"ninkimanjaj","formatid":"gen7partnersincrime","rating":1242,"private":0,"password":null}

Hi, I'm currently locked on PS as my IP appears to be a proxy. Fair enough, since I do use a VPN, however the problem persists even after I disconnect from my VPN. How can I fix this so that disconnecting from my VPN allows me to chat?

Also are there any plans to make TRUE G4 Ubers (i.e. Arc permitted) at least a challenge option?

I was wondering if it is possible to send custom game challenges but with sleep clause mod on, and if so how it can be done
You can create a groupchat with the /makegroupchat command, then start a tournament /tour new gen7customgame, elimination (of course it also works other generations), add Sleep Clause with /tour rules sleepclausemod and invite the person you want to play against to the room.

Today on Tours Plaza there was an Ubers tournament with the gen7camomons rule applied to it. However, the camomons rule appears to have come with the OU banlist, effectively turning the tournament into plain camomons. Is there a way to only apply the camo effect without the additional bans?

Make a Camomons tour then add ubers rules and remove OU rules by /tour rules gen7ubers, !gen7ou
 

Where does this distinction come from? From what I understand, Rain Dish Tentacruel knowing Reflect is legal in gen 7 OU because it learns Reflect in gen 1 through a TM and it can be transferred through the Virtual Console. Nidoking can know Lovely Kiss (as well as Sweet Kiss and Morning Sun) through an event in generation 2, so why is Sheer Force Nidoking knowing Lovely Kiss (or any of the other event moves) illegal in gen 7 OU? Is it not possible to transfer event Pokémon through the Virtual Console?
