Apologies if this is a dim question, but is there a sort of calculator for how to increase one's GXE?
If you wanna go into the numbers to understand how GXE works, you can check this: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threa...layers-overall-rating-than-shoddys-cre.51169/

Now, from an empirical point of vu, you can note that your GXE will increase after winning a game and decrease after losing one, but the increase or decrease depends on the opponent GXE. Thus, the higher your opponent GXE is, the more your GXE will increase after a win and the less it will decrease after a loss. It also depends on the number of games you have played. If you already did a huge number of games, your GXE will increase or decrease very slowly while when you start playing on an account its variations are relatively important after each game.

In my opinion, there's no point in trying to calculate how to increase your GXE as you don't choose the opponents you will face and the only way to increase it is winning your ladder games.

Is there anyway I can change my avatar?

Hey coneydub,

For your first question, you can select DOU or DUbers as the tier you are building in and the teambuilder will show the list of DUbers, DOU, DUU... Pokemon.

For advanced filters, you can't do that directly in the teambuilder (if I'm not mistaken), but you can use commands to do so. This is the command for the example you gave:

Thanks, I already knew about selecting in the team select, but you can type "OU" in the teambuilder filter and only display OU, but the "tier" tag doesnt exist for doubles categories like DOU, DUbers etc

As for /ds, I actually learned about that command the day I made this suggestion, but I didn't know its usage yet so thank you.

I see, thank you!
 
I know you can find "Checks & Counters" stats regarding switching out or not. But is there somewhere you can find stats for what switches in? Like I'm assuming for Urshifu-Rapid-Strike, Toxapex is the #1 Switch-in. But, I'd like to see stats for the rest so you can use them for teambuilding. Thank you!

Hello,

This is not exactly an answer to your question as I don't know if such stats exist. However, if you want to find good switch-ins/checks to a given Pokemon there are two tools that may help you.

The first one, is the Smogdex analysis where you can find at the end of each analysis a Checks and Counters section (the analysis needs to be uploaded though, which is not yet the case for every Pokemon in gen8 tiers).

The second tool is some threads you can find in several tier's subforums named "Victim Of The Week". In these threads, the community tries to find the best checks and counters for a given Pokemon each week. It's of course not exhaustive (and probably doesn't exist for all tiers, but there's one for OU as you were giving an exemple in OU). You can find interesting (and sometimes creative) answers that may help you.

I let someone that knows better than me how the usage stats are collected answer to the question about switch-ins data.

So i understand the hydreigon toxapex core but what are some good mons to sync up with the core
Hey, I think you will have more chances to get an answer by asking this in the subforum of the tier you want to use this core in. Looking at the Pokemon, I assume it's OU so it would be here https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/simple-questions-simple-answers-thread.3656259/ (but if it's another tier like National Dex, you can find a similar thread in the tier subforum).

Not sure if this is intended, but people that won SSD 4 are showing as winning this term of SCL. Lets take an example such as TJ.
Don't have the proof like swiping over the trophy, but if you take a simple search you should know what I mean. Here are some threads to make your life easier. https://www.smogon.com/forums/threa...iv-finals-won-by-sky-tower-lindworms.3673231/ https://www.smogon.com/forums/members/tj.331538/
It's a tour replacing SSD, it's intended.
