Bug Reports v4 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]


I found a Eject Pack Interaction that works differently on showdown than on console:


In this replay you see that the eject pack gets triggered by Landorus intimidate BEFORE Groudons drought goes off.

But in this video from James Baek on minute 13:00 you see that on console Drought still gets activated before eject pack gets triggered.

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - MECHANICS (SERVER) this is a known bug (DaWoblefet)

We just had a tour in the italian room that had these custom rules:


However, someone managed to enter the tour with a Swalot, this is the replay https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8nationaldex-1482969166

And this is the server timestamp for that battle


BUG STATUS: NOT A BUG, because National Dex allows Pokemon that don't exist in Generation 8 (like Swalot), it overrides the -All Pokemon ban and is intentionally done so. See this post by Karthik for more details (DaWoblefet)

Userlist not updating correctly to reflect a user's status (busy / idle) and not removing names from the list if the user left the room.

So this showdown battle room was acting very strange just now. First, I noticed the timer would not forfeit my opponent. I tried multiple things like leaving and rejoining the room, and resetting the timer. Didn't work. Then I realized there were technically no people in the room even though I was there and my opponent was supposedly there, and that it was telling me the battle needed more players even though it listed two of us. It's like we were in the room and not at the same time. My opponent may not have even been aware of this battle room at all. It wouldn't let me forfeit, and I couldn't grab a replay. So I grabbed screenshots instead. Maybe it's a glitch, rather than an actual bug, but seeing as someone above me just posted a similar issue with a battle being unendable I thought I'd share.

This is the expired battle room link, if it helps anything: https://play.pokemonshowdown.com/battle-gen8ou-1485570093



BUG STATUS: FIXED (See the above post, its the same issue and its already been fixed) (HoeenHero)

Dex often doesn't load if looking up Abilities. Asked around and many people seem to experience the same thing.

I have found a bug which prevents Zarude from recovering HP using Jungle Healing if it's poisoned and it has lost a maximum of 12% health. Zarude has Leftovers and Grassy Terrain is up. I'll leave the screenshots here. Thanks for your help

Shiny Genesect is being rejected if it doesn't have an event exclusive move it needs to be shiny to have (shift gear, blaze kick, or extreme speed).

This is similar to this bug from a while ago, which was affecting Zeraora, although in this case, it doesn't validate correctly if you have Techno Blast, despite the shiny event Genesect having it. I assume this also occurs with other Pokemon that have event-only shiny forms, though I haven't tested.

National Dex Monotype Teambuilder shouldn't have Ultra Necrozma and Zygarde-Complete listed as available pokemon, especially the latter since Power Construct is banned.

In the settings of the game we can change the language.
However when I select french nothing happen.
The translation just don't work or there is no french translation available ?

BUG STATUS - NOT A BUG: For now, our translations only change the replies of (some) commands. We're working on better support, but that's blocked on the Preact client overhaul. (Mia)

When changing the sound settings, if you try to set an option to zero, it visually resets to the default once you click away from the popup. The sound is still actually muted.

I logged on ps, played the first match of a nu tour.

I pressed "ready" for the 2nd, it got me into the match and displayed this:

Well here's another one:

I was trying to switch alts and got this super weird message
thing is, I've never actually joined that tour

FrostPixel edit:

Similiar bug to the 2nd one; however, this time I actually joined the tour and used /tour sub.
J0rdy004 ♫ has joined the tournament, replacing Frixel.
Nevertheless, none of us is still in the tour and still doesn't allow renaming

BUG STATUS: NEEDS MORE INFO, I'd bet this has to do with the wrong format loading bug, but it's not super clear how to reproduce this (DaWoblefet)

Playing a challenge in AG- When dynamaxing Kyogre, it appears as my background, animated.

BUG STATUS: NOT A BUG, you accidentally dragged the Kyogre sprite to your background. Karthik's made a change to make it so you have to confirm your action, though (DaWoblefet).

Using a shiny Genesect with only special attacking moves will show a prompt that Genesect needs to match one of its events, despite shiny Genesect being able to learn all the moves used. This appears to be consistent for all formats where Genesect is legal. Furthermore, changing one of its moves to any physical move makes its moveset legal. Screenshots below.

BUG STATUS: NOT A BUG, see Hematite's reply below (DaWoblefet)

OK this is an actual bug this time right? I have no idea what caused this but I am unable to select a valid team since it's stuck on random team.

Switching to another game type and back fixed it but I figured I should report it anyway.

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - CHAT (CLIENT) same as this bug (DaWoblefet)
