Bug Reports v4 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

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)

Hi! My friend inkbug and I have confirmed that recoil from Mind Blown and Steel Beam activates Wimp Out and Emergency Exit on cartridge. (I couldn't find any other records of it being confirmed in the mechanics threads, so we wanted to see how it worked for ourselves.)

I initially took this video confirming the interaction in Gen VII, and ink went on to record confirmation of the same behavior with both moves in Gen VIII - one of Steel Beam and one of Mind Blown, in case there was room for discrepancy between the two.

Here's a replay featuring both of us showing that neither move activates Emergency Exit on Showdown, which is not cartridge-accurate.

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - MECHANICS (SERVER) thanks for the cart footage! (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.
The only legal Shiny Genesect, which are from events, are guaranteed to have IVs of 31 in Attack and Speed. Your Genesect with only special moves had an IV of 0 in Attack because the teambuilder recommends that by default for a Pokémon with no physical moves, which is why it was illegal only when it had no physical moves - it should validate if you change it back to a 31 manually!

In the French chatroom, we've made a mono-dragon cc1v1 tournament with the following ruleset :
Code:
/tour new cc1v1, elimination
/tour rules forcemonotype=Dragon
/tour name [Gen 8] Mono-Dragon Challenge Cup 1vs1
In the tournament, it has happened several times that Exeggutor (Grass/Psychic) was available at the team preview, presumably because the game tried to load Exeggutor-Alola (Grass/Dragon) but brought the wrong Pokémon during team generation.

Examples of replays:

/ds, /nds, /ms and /nms fail if 'maxgen' and 'all' are the only parameters, saying "No search parameters other than 'all' were found." /as and /is work just fine (e.g. "/ds3 all" doesn't work, but "/as3 all" does). The 'maxgen' param works as intended if other params are added.

I think it has something t do with prankster https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8vgc2022-1492716574

BUG STATUS: NOT A BUG, When Dynamaxing, you can Max any move even those that are disabled, unless all of your moves are disabled, but this didn't apply until after the Taunt. (urkerab)

Hey i just tested this on cart due to curiousity and it does the same thing on cartridge. (ignore the last minute, i forgot to cut lol)
However I am unsure if this applies if you encore a damaging move, as i forgot forgot to test that as well

Bug: Selecting an Ability freezes the online dex
Where: PSdex

Self-explanatory: look at the address bar and the site itself. If I click any Ability (Soundproof in this case, as this is the Ability I first noticed this with), the site freezes until I refresh. Refreshing the site means I will go to whatever the content of the address bar seems appropriate, in this case, to the description page of the Soul Dew.

The teambuilder displays XY models instead of BW sprites even if the "Use BW sprites instead of XY models" setting is active. This happens whenever a gen 6, gen 7, or gen 8 format is selected. However, this only applies to pre-gen 8 Pokémon. For Pokémon introduced in gen 8, a sprite is properly displayed when the setting is active. Screenshot attached below:

Check if this is a bug. "Expanding force" is a whole attack, but it only attacks one opponent. Thank you for your confirmation.

BUG STATUS: NOT A BUG, I know for a fact there's nothing wrong with Expanding Force right now (DaWoblefet)

Should be a quick fix. According to a quick Google search (and research specialist Enigami) the max PP for a move in generation one (RBY) is 61. However, there are a few moves on PS! that have 64 PP in RBY Battles. These moves are:

Acid Armor
Defense Curl
Growl
Growth
Meditate
Poison Gas
Splash
String Shot
Withdraw

If someone could change these to the proper PP (61) that'd be much appreciated!

Since some time yesterday I can't see the avatar / team of the player on the left. This applies to both in-game and replays. If I switch sides, it's still the player on the left that I can't see. Now if I zoom in to 110% or more, I can see everything just fine. I heard from someone with the same issue. Interestingly, taking a screenshot with the built in option in Firefox reveals the team and avatar. I used a snipping tool to take pictures that show the issue. I tried restarting the browser and clearing the showdown cookies, just in case, but it didn't change anything. Let me know if you need any additional information.

85percent edit:
Checking my Firefox version revealed that it was 94.0.2 (so not the newest version). Also today the issue disappeared (without having updated Firefox yet), after restarting the browser (which I had also tested before, but initially without success).

BUG STATUS: FIXED, presumably anyway

Today so far during both of these games I was inexplicably unable to switch to two of my non-fainted pokemon.

DaWoblefet So the issue was that during those two games, there would be 2 pokemon that if i clicked on them the program wouldn't be responsive but i was still able to succesfully get any of the 3 remaining pokemon switched in by clicking on their icon.

DaWoblefet I'm not sure how else to help you. When I moved my mouse to click those pokemon , and clicked them, there was no response, the program was not letting me switch the pokemon in. However, when I hovered my mouse over the other prospective switchins, it showed the preview including their moveset as normal, and when I clicked on them, the program switched them in as normal. For what it's worth, I hopped on PS just now and used the same team and seems everything's back to normal, I'm not sure if it was just brief client-side issue but it's worth looking into.

BUG STATUS: NEEDS MORE INFO, there still isn't information here for us to reproduce the issue (DaWoblefet)

Bug: Gen 5 sprites for Vivillon's alternate patterns (except Fancy/Poké Ball) don't exist in the sprite database for PS

For some reason, while the spreadsheet for the XY sprite project includes the Gen 5 style Vivillon sprites for all of its patterns and their links are denoted as final, the sprites are still not included in PS. I assume this is a mistake.

It's not that these sprites for Vivillon's patterns (except Meadow/Fancy/Poké Ball) will never load due to pings, they will never load because they don't exist in the sprite database.

Proof that only three Vivillon Gen 5 sprites exist in the sprite database.

Visual bug- Sticky web's pp appears to be affected by pressure, but it isn't. Spectators and the player with the pressure pokemon see that sticky web loses 2 pp against a pressure mon if sticky web is successful, but the player with the sticky web mon sees that it only loses 1 pp. This means that shuckle will be able to use sticky web while appearing to have negative sticky web pp to everybody but the shuckle user. If sticky web fails (there's already a web up), everybody sees that it only loses 1 pp. Sticky web isn't supposed to be affected by pressure, so the issue is with it appearing that 2 pp is lost per successful web.

Sticky barb bug, the barb would act weird when switching between opponents. Sorry, but I don't really know if it shows in early game, but later in the game at turn 47 (the pex to pex interaction), if u hover the tentacool's pex, it says we have no item, but in chat and in game we were hurt by the barb. Small glitch, but impacted our ghosting tour game lol.

Y0M1: Wasurezu what is the bug
Y0M1: dont report it without being sure it is a bug
Wasurezu: sticky barb bug, i'll send replay
Wasurezu: visual glitch
Wasurezu: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8ou-1497096056-2g9fuexckgw2e9gk379ks65vqqzvejupw happened during ghosting tourny too which sucked
Wasurezu: pex had sticky barb, but if u hover over the clef sometime in the battle, it says that it had it too
Wasurezu: turn 11
Y0M1: you tricked it back
Y0M1: to yourself
Wasurezu: no, our pex and the clef had the barb
Wasurezu: wait wtf
Y0M1: turn 9 you got the barb man
Wasurezu: go to turn 23, we got hurt by the barb and hover over pex, we dont have it?
Y0M1: attackers also lose hp
Y0M1: when hitting an opponent with barb
Y0M1: dont assume just bc they took damage that they had it
Y0M1: the toxapex got it
Wasurezu: the opp said we have it too, idk if it showed in battle or im just dumb
Y0M1: when it clicked knock off
Y0M1: in turn 10
Wasurezu: and then tricked back
Y0M1: back to yourselves, yea
Wasurezu: oh ur right LOL
Y0M1: but then they got it back AGAIN
Y0M1: by knocking u off
Wasurezu: yeah
Wasurezu: im so confused sorry lol
Y0M1: the pex left the field with the barb
FLASH3G: Will there ever be unranked double battles, or free for all double battles?
Y0M1: thats why it wasnt transferred between torn and clef
Y0M1: there wont be ranked ffas FLASH3G
FLASH3G: Unranked, not ranked
FLASH3G: Ans doubles*
Y0M1: i havent heard anything abt that
Y0M1: so i couldnt tell you
Wasurezu: y0m1, turn 47, it says we dont have the barb on hover, but we got the effect
Y0M1: who are you in this battle btw?
Wasurezu: tentacool
Y0M1: ok
Y0M1: oh yea it does say that
Y0M1: even before around 25
Wasurezu: yeah
Wasurezu: should i reporttt or nah?
Y0M1: at least the mechanics werent messed with
Y0M1: which is what i was worried abt
SylverStar: i think you should
Y0M1: i would, seems significant
Y0M1: just make sure no one else has before
Wasurezu: yeah, but like the torn play, idk if i was just dumb, but it wasted a turn, cudve chanegd the outcome of the game when it comes to rotations and stuff
Wasurezu: aight, thanks!

BUG STATUS: CONFIRMED - MECHANICS (CLIENT), Sticky Barb doesn't show you swapping Pokemon on cart, so you can't always keep track of it, but there were a few turns in this game where it didn't where it'd be possible (DaWoblefet)

Bug: Party member entry that shows on hovering has a slash / before Item: in Gen 2 battles

The slash shouldn't be there (for Gen 2 only!) because Abilities didn't exist in Gen 2. The screenshot below shows the bug.

Noticed this bug when participating in a mono Psychic randoms tournament, which were Inverse Battles BTW.

found a strange bug when joining a gen2 tournament battle (randbats). can't view the battle, not sure how to replicate, but i'm on chrome and macOS. the messages repeat in this fashion in the entire chat for all turns.
Screenshot 2022-01-27 at 22.33.10.png

was from: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen2randombattle-1499698894

BUG STATUS: NEEDS MORE INFO, this is definitely the client crashing somehow but I can't reproduce it. The only weird thing in this game is the Blitz timer (DaWoblefet)

Urshifu's Gigantamax forms are obtainable with Max Soup. However, the Max Soup must also contain Max Honey.
