Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

Is there any reason why Punishment is illegal for Murkrow? It learns it as an egg move in USUM per serebii, and it also listed as a legal move for it on smogon. serebii link: https://www.serebii.net/pokedex-sm/198.shtml
Yeah, I'm an idiot. minutes after I told you to go here, someone else posted an explanation: Vullaby and Mandibuzz pass down punishment to murkrow, but can't legally because they're female only species. Basically, there's no way to get murkrow with punishment even though its coded to learn it in the actual games.
 
My opponent disconnected when the timer was turned off, I turned it on and I had to wait 270 seconds instead of 60 like usual

Does the timer even start at 270 seconds? I feel like it starts at 120. Either way I shouldn't have to wait 3 minutes
 
I've noticed an issue with replays recently and it seems to be more frequent now. A message often pops up after you exit a battle room saying "You tried to send "/savereplay" to the room "battle-..." but it failed because you were not in that room. "

Sometimes, I have already saved the replay while still in the room, and it displays a message saying the replay was saved. The replay IS indeed saved if I go check replays. Then I close the battle room and get this message a minute or so later.

Additionally, this happens sometimes when the replay isn't even being saved. I ran into this a while back and it wasn't reproducible but now it's happening a lot and other users have seen similar behavior.

Using Skill Swap in a double battle between a Girafarig with Sap Sipper and an ally Kyogre-P with Primordial Sea doesn't give Kyogre-P Sap Sipper (Girafarig gets Primordial Sea, Kyogre-P keeps Primordial Sea as ability). Tried it in-game and it works there, so must be a bug. It works with Levitate from Bronzong.

It actually is Skill Swapping the ability, it's just not showing up to you as the user. See this post for a more in-depth explanation of what's going wrong (it's just a visual bug).

On turn 9, U-turn breaks the Sub but Intimidate doesn't activate when Gyarados comes in. Intimidate works normally on turn 17 when Gyara switches in.
This is apparently how U-turn vs. Substitute is really supposed to be handled in gen 4. If you want to call it a bug, then it would be a bug in the original game, not the sim which is trying to recreate that game.
 
I think this is a bug, this is BSS 17 Metagame, it says this one but it's breedable in the main Gen 7 games.

Your team was rejected for the following reasons:

(Assuming you're talking about Latias-Mega being hit by Bullet Punch while Psychic Terrain is active)

Only grounded Pokemon are protected from priority while Psychic Terrain is up. Since Mega Latias has Levitate, it's not protected from priority moves like Bullet Punch.

Is there a source for this? I did some quick poking around and couldn’t find anything. I’m curious if this was discovered or implemented recently because I don’t recall ever seeing it happen before.
 
Silvally-Grass seems to be lacking a gen 7 sprite, instead defaulting to a gen 5 sprite, for me, but only on my side of the field.

Replay: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7anythinggoes-979342872

On team preview, a gen 7 sprite is used, but in the battle itself, a gen 5 sprite is used instead.

Team Preview: https://prnt.sc/p8xe0v
In Battle: https://prnt.sc/p8xe2t
double check that you don't have "use BW sprites instead of XY models" enabled and "disable gifs for chrome 64 bug" enabled
 
Special event vivillons in CC1v1 only have the move psybeam. I don't know if it affects the regular pattern ones, but all the fancy and pokeball patterned viv's are affected.

Was playing randoms today.

The application of storm throw's guaranteed crit and the critical-nullifying effect of battle armor is mis-ordered.

Had a Type: Null with Battle Armor, and a Throh used Storm Throw.


The result was a critical hit. The expected result is not a critical hit (battle armor and related abilities are the only way for guaranteed-crits like storm throw and frost breath to not crit).

Can you show us a replay?
