Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

After the failed Sky Drop on turn 12, the hover displays for moves get a bit odd. Silvally obtains a Sky Drop (5/5) and the enemy Venusaur gets a "Sky Drop" listing too, even though it was the victim.
The bug here is that the tooltips show a called two-turn move as belonging to Silvally.

(Normally, if Mew was to transform into something knowing (but not having used) Sky Drop, and then Mew uses Sky Drop, that would reveal that the Pokémon that Mew transformed into knows Sky Drop.)

We know about this. Hopefully my fix is close to landing!
 
So I think there's something wrong with Zoroark in randombattles. It's lvl 100 and when I sent it in it had the appearance of Naganadel, but in the preview it showed it was a Zoroark, which isn't supposed to happen. Now Zoroark has always been messy with the preview. Showing up as a secondary Naganadel(Or any other mon) which also immediately reveals that you have a Zoroark, but it has never happened this way.
People kept on complaining when it showed up as a secondary copy so Zarel rewrote the code to show that there were some sort of Illusion shenanigans going on (which you knew already but this way it's less confusing for most players).

Yea but this way it gives it away in an even more obvious way... Also it's still level 100. That's OP and I'm not convinced it's supposed to be like that. So there's still a bug
It's level 100 because Delibird is level 100. It's set to a level where it can imitate the Pokémon in your last slot, which in this case was Delibird. If you use it to imitate any other Pokémon, its level will be wrong and it will be revealed as a Zoroark in the Pokémon list.

Hol up so Zoroark was pre-set to the same level as the mon in my last slot? So even if Delibird dies it will still be lvl 100? I've never heard of that mechanic before. I always thought Zoroark had its own level resembling its slot in RU-BL and that the illusion would keep that hidden until it was revealed.
Are you sure that it was not a bug? It seems kinda OP to have a possible level 100 Zoroark.
Sorry if I keep rambling about this. Just want to be sure we all understand the situation
Yes. Zoroark is the level of the "default" Illusion'd Pokemon. If you "misplay" and make it Illusion something else, your opponent will know it's a Zoroark because it will show a duplicate in the sidebar. Without this "mechanic", it would always show a duplicate in the sidebar. This makes Zoroark more viable in Random Battle rather than being easily predicted. There's nothing more to discuss.
 
using sychronoise will seemingly only do the type check for your ally. both of your opponents pokemon are unaffected, even if they should be hit by the move.
The fix for this is waiting for a hotpatch or restart, which I would expect to happen some time this week.
 
Recently found these 2 bugs involving groupchats.

1. /makegroupchat fails if you can't talk in the room it is used in, such as modchat. Even if this is supposed to prevent locked users from creating groupchats, I feel that it's it's unnecessary to have to use a different room to use the command, mostly because it doesn't do anything to the room at all.

2.

This probably wasn't intended, and idk a good reason why you would want to mute yourself
 
Greetings! It might be a relatively very minor bug, but the groupchatuptime command is not working in the group chat named groupchat-mywailingtears-parasoul. The command is working perfectly in other group chats, and I’ve tested that. I have noticed that three days before the time I’m posting this here. Also, I don’t know if the following information is of any relevance, but that group chat has been existing since the last server restart i.e. 26 days before the current time. I am attaching the screenshots just for the sake of convenience. I would be more than happy if this matter is looked into.

So, there is a little show/graphic bug with ability in gen3ou.

replay

turn1: ArcticBreezeX leads with Salamence on Skarmory and Skarmory is Intimidated but PS shows his ability to be Intimidate too. Same with Blizzey, Suicune, Jirachi, ... on the replay (on Sakito side). It would be nice to fix that.

This won't be happening anymore in the next server restart.
 
I am on pokemon showdown too for now. In my experience I fought against a darkrai that had over 252 speed evs. If this doesn't count as a bug I'm sorry But I thought I should let you know.

Do you have a replay? Also, how do you know it had more than 252 EVs and wasn't just holding a Choice Scarf?

Possible bug with Body Slam. On turn 1 of this battle, Jirachi paralyzes me with Body slam but PS says that Pyukumuku flinched. He said in chat he was Sitrus so flinch from item is out of the picture.

Or he could be King's Rock/Razor Fang and just lied :P
It would probably be a leak for me to say exactly what it was, so I'll just confirm that yes, he lied, and no, there's no bug here.
 
2 Validator bugs in Gen 5 formats:
  1. The validator doesn't seem to check if a pokemon is obtainable below evolution level:
    • Volcarona is not allowed below level 59, despite being obtainable in BW2's Relic Castle at level 35.
    • Tyranitar is not allowed below level 55, despite being obtainable on Route 15 in shaking grass at level 50 (BW1).
  2. The validator appears to be referencing Gen 4 levels for Gen 5 learnset validation
    • Note that Magnemite learns Mirror Shot at level 25 in BW2
    • A Magnemite with Mirror Shot at level 42 was not allowed, but it was allowed at level 43 - the level it learned Mirror Shot in Gen 4.
    • A Magnemite with Electro Ball at level 26 was not allowed, but it was allowed at level 27. This is the expected result, but its strange that the validator appears to reference Gen 4 for Mirror Shot, but will move to Gen 5 for a move that didn't exist in Gen 4.
    • This affects Magneton and Magnezone as well. I did not test other pokemon to see if the issue is exclusive to Magnemite or not.
 
Visual quirks with Illusion Ampharos in Metronome Battle (2v2). My party menu/hover display shows an Ampharos sprite, but Pikachu-Starter name. After megavolving it tells me its (base) ability is Static, and the same with the party icon's and the sprite's hover display. I feel like viewing these labels from the party menu should try to tell you the current information of your mons with best efforts, since it's personal to you like the ingame party menu. Not a big deal since this is a niche scenario and a typical player won't see any conflict, along with Gen 8 looming in. Cheers

EDIT: The coloured backgrounds behind statuses in the sprite hover display don't show up in the replay site. https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7metronomebattle-1005304545

EDIT 2: I can't test this, but this is one of the last big questions I had about metronome that I always wondered about. On turn 3 the Choiced Pokestar UFO uses Uproar (thru Metronome), and for the next 2 turns he is forced to use Uproar and fail since he's locked into Metronome. I do not know if you are stuck for 2 turns in the same scenario on cart, or if you would just fail for 1 turn and then able to move again like Bide (on PS). Speaking of which I don't have a Bide replay but I recall it using the move, then the next turn it would fail. I don't know if this is how it works ingame.

Pokemon with Dream World exclusive moves should be locked to having their Hidden Ability, since the Dream World always comes with a dream world ability.

Piloswine has to have AncientPower in its moveslots when evolving, so a Mamoswine can't have 4 prevolution or egg moves before gen 6 or 7, whichever added move relearning and egg reminder moves that let you get moves back. Shoutouts to pkhex and their legality reports that I noticed.

1573170423817.png


Also I noticed this asterisk when doing a /learn for Avalanche. I don't know what this is, at first I thought it was a new symbol for a chain breed or something with Smeargle, but I tried a few other egg moves I knew and they seemed fine. A nice guy in the help room wasn't sure either so I put it here.

1573170706672.png


It appears this happens for Metronome/Mimic Snubbull as well. I guess it has something to do with past gen parents. /learn(all)ing with another egg move that shows parents, like Close Combat, seems to show the same parents of the (move that shows parents), even if they don't actually learn the asterisked egg move.

Curse Mamoswine has 2 virtual console origins, I assume one is for Swinub and one is for Piloswine but unlabeled. Reminds me of the duplicate parents being listed for Leaf Storm roserade which is fixed now. Thanks!
1573171333156.png


This one just repeated all the moves I put in and said they were incompatible, though I guess it can't be helped to decide which moves are incompatible with which scenario.
1573174227576.png


1: /learn marill fireblast, 2: learn marill hail fireblast, 3: leam marill fireblast hail. Anything after Fire Blast gives you the 3rd message repeating itself, so I guess it just stops at the first illegality which makes sense.
1573174404251.png


I noticed this quirk too, not sure if intended. Regular /learn shows the last 4 parents in dex order for egg moves, while /learnall shows it all in dex order like how it used to be.
1573171395037.png


These are inconsistencies I guess. /learning Sludge for Venusaur says to breed Swampert, while Bulbasaur and Ivysaur also list Venusaur as a parent. Marill is in the screencap because I didn't realize what they meant differently by chainbreed (on a solo mon) until just now.
1573171848494.png


Marill gets Aqua Jet from the Dream World but only as a Marill, so Splash from Azurill shouldn't be available.

Jaboca and Rowap berry still appear in the Item: slot when used. Already reported but I felt like it was fine to repost after like a year. Also I noticed that eating the berry, but its effect not activating (Magic Guarded) actually showed the None!

Turn 1, Venusaur Sky Drops me and Tyranitar uses Rototiller successfully to boost his stats while in the air/not being grounded. I don't know if this is the ingame behaviour, but (I assume) Sky Drop should make you ungrounded and Rototiller only affects grounded grass Pokemon, so something feels wrong here.

Bulbapedia says Rototiller doesn't affect invulnerable moves like Fly and Dig for what it's worth.

Also it said Rototiller didn't affect my Minior, ingame it only mentions boosts for successful targets.
