Suggestion for the names in the left corner not to be cut off a little and stay better aligned.

I can't tell for sure the nature of the glitch, but it doesn't seem that proto/quark boost given from baton pass works at all. they show the mark on the Pokémon and on its stats, but It doesn't seem it change anything from an unboosted Pokémon


Their Pelipper is 251 speed, boosted by tailwind which makes 502 in total, and I'm choice scarf chi-yu and the proto boost, but the game seems to only applies the choice scarf

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - MECHANICS (CLIENT) Not recieving the protosynthesis boost is correct as baton pass can’t pass that, but the volatile tag should’ve been removed (Karthik)

Banned deucer.
Mega Pokemon lose their Mega Evolution upon fainting on cartridge, but due to an oversight, Revival Blessing allows them to keep their Mega Evolution. This is not the case in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon cartridge. When a Pokemon faints with Mega Evolution, it reverts to base form and cannot re-trigger Mega Evolution for the remainder of the battle should it get revived via an item. This is relevant in National Dex Anything Goes.


Opponent's Mega Tyranitar kept getting Revival Blessed, but kept coming in the battle as Tyranitar-Mega, not Tyranitar.

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - MECHANICS (SERVER), fainted form regression applies to some other stuff too (DaWoblefet)

Bug: Ruin abilities (Sword of Ruin, Tablets of Ruin, etc.) shouldn't affect anyone who also has the same Ability, but they do.

According to Bulbapedia, Pokemon with Sword of Ruin and its variations are immune to the same Ability, but e.g. Sword of Ruin mons are not immune to Tablets of Ruin mons.

Tested with a Chien-Pao and a Hypno in Partners in Crime, and in Doubles OU. Due to the former OM's mechanics, both Chien-Pao and Hypno have Sword of Ruin at the same time.
:chien-pao: Chien-Pao @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Sword of Ruin
Tera Type: Dark
EVs: 252 HP / 212 Atk / 44 SpD
Brave Nature
IVs: 9 Spe
- Crunch

:hypno: Hypno @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Insomnia
Tera Type: Psychic
EVs: 252 Def / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Role Play

Relevant replays:
Partners in Crime replay
Doubles OU replay

Before doing both tests, I made sure to precisely calculate so that if Hypno has Sword of Ruin, it can't get OHKO'd by Chien-Pao's Crunch, but the move is guaranteed to OHKO if Hypno doesn't have Sword of Ruin, and that Hypno outspeeds Chien-Pao.
To simulate this, I changed Chien-Pao's Ability, and not Hypno's.

If Hypno has Sword of Ruin:

If Hypno does not have Sword of Ruin:
If the Abilities were already coded like that, Hypno would have not been OHKO'd (in both battles).

All this means that this is a server bug (Showdown-cartridge discrepancy).

Left clicking on the replay link in the uploaded prompt does not open the replay as expected. I feel like this is a bug because I remember it working differently a few years ago.
Example: If I click the link here it takes me back to the battle room and I have to middle click or right click to open the replay instead.

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - Chat (Client): The client automatically converts replay. links to pop it into a new room instead, and in this case it's just making you join the room it's already in. This should be changed for this particular popup.

Bug: Copycat appears to be wrongly implemented in Gen 4.

The Pokémon using Copycat is currently able to copy the move it last used, in chain, even if it was called by Copycat. See this replay for example:

However after testing it on the cartridge, it doesn't work that way. Check these videos for example:

The Pokémon is able to use a move through Copycat once, but using it in succession leads the second use of Copycat to fail.

This old post from the research thread seems to agree: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/dp-research-thread-2-new.24516/page-5#post-496254

If I use Power Split on an opponent I can't see my actual stat changing and that's fine because I can't know the Ivs and Evs of my opponent, but it doesn't make sense that if I use Power Split on my other Pokémon in Doubles it still doesn't show the change, I know the Ivs and Evs of my 2 mons so I see no problem in showing the actual "updated" value in that case.
Encore erroneously fails when used into Roar or Whirlwind in GSC, see below:

encore currently fails if used after being dragged in by a phazing move, seen here
according to beelzemon's testing this is correct in stadium 2 (except when the encore user was in during a roar/ww fail), and would have to be handled accordingly when changed
correct behavior, encore works
i forgot to put the roar fail case in the video but obviously encore works either way lol. ty waterwizard for mentioning this
I have tested this on an older fork of PS which doesn't reproduce the glitch, though at a glace I'm not sure what's causing this to happen.

Final Gambit in Trick Room while 1v1 makes the loser lose the battle.

We were both left with one pokemon, I used my Annihilape to take down their Tauros, I thought I won but somehow that granted me a loss

the user always faints first, regardless of TR being up or not. if 2 pokemon are left and both die as a result of you using final gambit, you lose the battle.
