Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

is there any news on when the Gen 9 pokemon will all have official art? Like the art they show first thing on Bulbapedia, I don't know what to call it (I wanna say Sugomori art but I associate that more with the watercolor art and that's also probably a huge misnomer)

I hope this is the correct place to post this.

There is some javascript on the smogon dex website that makes it a pain to use. The text is loaded and unloaded as you scroll the page. It makes it so you can't run a proper ctrl+f to find something you are looking for. And the dex search doesn't include searching the text of a move or ability.

For instance, say I wanted to look at all multihit moves. There is no simple way to do that. The dex used to be good for that kind of browsing before the JS was added.
I was redirected back to https://www.smogon.com/dex/ after asking:
How do I use the live search?
Typing anywhere on the page will open the live search (lol, not this page, you have to select a generation first). For those on mobile, you need to click the Search icon. By default, it just searches the names of various Dex stuff. You can switch the field searched by typing a period, followed by the field you want to search. For example, ".ability f fire" will find all Pokemon with the ability Flash Fire.

Available search filters:
  • .ability, .a
  • .type, .t
  • .damage, .dmg (damage category for moves)
  • .description, .desc, .d
  • .tag
Where .d = search in description, so if you were looking for multi-hit moves I suppose you would search for ".d hits".

Why do unauthorized threads get locked instead of simply deleted?
They usually eventually get deleted, but since mods would like the people posting said threads to not just go and do it again, they usually put a message about a thread needing approval/being in the wrong place and lock the thread so the poster can see the message. It also slightly helps remind other newer users that threads need approval before being posted. Just deleting the thread doesn't have quite the same effect.

Makes a lot of sense, thank you!
 
Hello,

I've been playing lot's of pokemon already and sometimes saw youtubers showing doc where it showed which pokemons were to go up or down or their usages and I wanted to know where I could see those.

Thanks !

Is this thread only simple question's and answers for OU? I have a question about a tourney thread I saw and got curious. I will ask the question and mods can delete if this is not the place to ask.

In this tread (https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/spl-xiv-manager-signups.3712200/) 4 people signed up to be the mangers of the raiders. how do u guys decide what duo manages the team
Some things that can influence who gets which team:
- How qualified the manager + assistant is
- Historical ties to any particular team
- Which team they ask for in their sign up
- People who sign up as jokes and doesn't intend to manage
- Recently tourbanned users who just stopped being tourbanned wouldn't qualify even if they can sign up
 
Why are these Pokémon not in Limbo? IIRC, they're in the code, but are not available until SV gets Pokémon Home Support.

Question about the smogon site: when will the ScVi ou/dou format pages be updated to include rules/bans/etc.?
https://www.smogon.com/dex/sv/formats/doubles/
https://www.smogon.com/dex/sv/formats/ou/
Currently you need to either be very up-to-date or scour a bunch of forum pages to find said info. I run a discord league, and we need these pages to acclimate new players into smogon formats. Even if they don't have the links to analyses on each mon in the tier, just the rules/bans would be extremely helpful.

I am not sure if there is a faster way but you probably can just go in the teambuilder and look at the (D)Ubers mons in SV which are a few so it shouldn't be that hard to copy down on a rules pages or anything:

To see Clauses and further Ability bans you can type on the sim itself /tier ou or /tier gen9doublesou
