Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

However, if you were to somehow come into possession of one created illegally the game would be fine with it unless something else about it tripped the hack checks. Fissure on Machamp is legal and Machamp having No Guard is legal. The hack checks only check the PID/encryption constant/Home data markers and if each individual trait of the Pokémon is legal. It doesn't cross-check individual moves against anything other than if that Pokémon can have the move someone.
Thank you

You can't have it in Swsh (and in any game) because the only way to have Fissure Machamp is to transfer it from the first games and when doing so it will always get its hidden ability which is Steadfast. In Swsh you can switch between 2 regular abilities or get an hidden ability on a Pokemon with a regular one, but ability capsule only works this way and you can't get a regular ability on a Pokemon who has its hidden one, meaning you can't rid of Steadfast on your Fissure Machamp. This is also the reason why you can't have it when you play on Pokemon Showdown (unless you're playing in some obscur other metagames I guess)
Thanks

am I allowed to create an other account in pokemon showdown so I can test my teams against each other?(I want to control one account with my phone and the other with my laptop).
Alts are allowed on Pokemon Showdown! yes, you could also open another tab on your computer in incognito mode, use a different name and challenge yourself on there. Questions like this should go here though, this is for Smogon questions

would it be possible to allow notifications for threads with a specific prefix? For example, I would love to be able to get notifications when people post a team with the prefix "Other Metagame" in the SS Other Teams section of the RMT Forum, but not when someone posts a team marked as "UU."

I have got a couple of questions about the "apprentice program sign ups"

  1. what even is this program?are they for begginers who barely understand the game?do they teach you more advanced things about team building?or they are even more advanced than that?
  2. what do they mean when they say that we need "at least 15 posts"?do comments count as posts or they mean opening threads like rate my team?
  3. I am a bit confused about the part where they require experience. first they say that we need to play some tournaments but then they say that around 70 matches on pokemon showdown will do. I have got over 2000 matches in pokemon showdown but 0 matches in any tournament,so do I meet this requirent or not?
any way,I doubt if the tutors would be any helpful to me (I am talking from experience with the community the modderators and after reading a couple poorly written articles smogon), so the only reason I am asking these questions is out of curiosity.

Hey, about the first point, I made a long answer about B101 here: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threa...gestions-thread.3582200/page-141#post-9315386 but basically it's for people who already have some knowledge about the game and want to learn a new tier or improve in a tier they already know a bit. It will likely depend on the tutor you have, but you will probably go over advanced things.

For the second question, the number of posts is all the posts you have on smogon and not just the new threads, so for you it's 67.

And for the third question, you could probably ask to a B101 mod if you want, but I think it is to unsure that tutees have some experience in competitive Pokemon already and didn't just played casually on Pokemon Showdown without really understanding the game.

Anyway, feel free to have a look at this thread if you haven't already: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/b101-signups-faq.3591291/ The last point should also answer some of the questions you've asked here. And if some things are still unclear you should probably try asking a B101 mod directly as they'll be able to give you more precise answers. Hope this helps!
