I think I found the right place to post a small site edit: https://www.smogon.com/dex/ss/formats/uber/ lists "Other Pokemon with Strategies". Is that list meant to be exhaustive? If so, I found strategies on Barraskewda, Hippowdon, and Hydreigon, but those three aren't listed under that heading.

If it's not meant to be exhaustive: Perhaps add the word 'some' - "Some other pokemon with strategies" or "Recently added strategies"? And then, again if so, is there a link to all the pokemon that have strategies so far, in SS?

Hope that helps.

PS. So happy to have stumbled across this site - so much to learn!
The "Other Pokemon with Strategies" list for the Ubers page is specifically Pokemon with analyses for the Ubers metagame. Pokemon like Hydreigon and Barraskewda do have analyses, but not for Ubers, unlike the rest of the Pokemon on that list.

In Aegislash's 1v1 "Moves" section, Mega Venusaur is misspelled as "Mega Venusaru".

"Laser Focus allows Aegislash's next move to always be a critical hit the next turn, which bypasses stat boosts from Amnesia users like Mega Venusaru and Registeel, and is perfectly accurate, improving consistency, but it can be blocked completely by Substitute."

In Aegislash's Battle Spot Singles Overview, PokeBank has been out for almost two years. Therefore, I see no reason to keep the note of "When PokeBank returns, new threats will appear" there.

"After PokeBank returns, several threats such as Heatran and Calm Mind Suicune may return to haunt it. However, not much will change for Aegislash otherwise. "

Pushed a fix for this, the other thing I am not gonna touch cause it'd be better if someone with more knowledge in Battle Spot did.
 
The ability Punk Rock only mentions that it boosts sound based moves, not by how much; and the showdown calculator doesn't seem to take it into account, so I can't run calcs to see how it'll fare. It may not be the worst idea to update it with an amount.

"Boosts the power of sound-based moves. The Pokémon also takes half the damage from these kinds of moves."

Yeah I think it was becausewe didn’t know the boost at the time. It should boost Sound-moves by 1.3x
 
The description and effects of Inteleon "Snipe Shot" move is wrong.
The correct description of it is "The user ignores the effects of opposing Pokémon's moves and Abilities that draw in moves, allowing this move to hit the chosen target. " where as showdowns only states it has a higher crit.

It also doesnt correctly ignore moves and abilities that force you to target a different target (in doubles)
 
In the description of Dragon Darts there is no mention of the special quirk in doubles wherein if one of the opposing pokemon is fairy type or protecting, dragon darts will double attack the other opposing pokemon. This also isn't implemented in Showdown. While this isn't in the games' move description, it is something that occurs in game.

Can someone please explain what the Utility Umbrella does? I find it weird they'd make an item with that description when Safety Goggles exist, plus I can't test it because the game is making me wait 3 days before I can actually get the item.

Mega-Metagross' SM Uber set only has 504 EVs. Based on the set details, the last 4 should be allocated into Attack, resulting in the following spread:

  • 232 HP
  • 60 Atk
  • 40 SpD
  • 176 Spe
Went into the archives to find the original thread for Mega-Gross just to double check if there was any explanation or alternative for this and it looks like it went entirely unnoticed, so I requested the edit to 60 Atk EVs on the analysis, thanks!
 
This is just something small, but I think Eiscues ability Ice Face could be worded better in terms of when it comes back. The way it is worded is "The ice will be restored when it hails." Some people will understand this, but me and others mistook it for meaning that it will come back in hail, but what it means is that it comes back when it starts to hail. I think simply making the wording "The ice will be restored when it starts to hail." will make it easier to understand. Thanks!
