Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

Sorry, the pokemon analysis discussion pages? I want to mention something about the Ditto analysis that seems they forgot to mention, regarding Ditto's low speed. It's not only necessary for mirror matchup, it can come in handy for other cases, especially at the start of the battle or in a double KO:

This would go in the Analysis discussions page, which can be found here

Suggestion: On the damage calculator, something messed with my friend in an important battle. The damage calculator already assumes the value of Download before boosts. Can you change that, or see if there's a way to enable or disable it in the calculator? Because in battle, natural instincts would say 'ok, +1 attack' not thinking about download, and that'd make it +2 basically, which majority changes calcs, making all calcs with download mons harder to do through habit.
 
Kalalokki redirected me here, but concerning the Smogon forums, in the profile section, there's an area to mention your real name, but not one about your PS! name. Not all Smogoners have their PS name and it'd be convenient for tournaments and such for your opponent to know your PS! name. Also in the contacts section of your profile, can Discord be added? It's definitely one of the more popular ways to connect nowadays and deserves a spot on there.
 
Is the old status message (not CT, the old thing that would appear underneath the CT when you'd hover under someone's name) on the list of things to add back?

I hope this is allowed here, because I have a question about banned users’ profiles, not about the banned users themselves.

As someone who likes to go back and read old posts, I encounter a good amount of posts from banned users. The most common thing to do seems to be their name crossed out, a revert back to the default avatar, and a “banned deucer” ct. Despite this, there are a good amount who don’t follow the listed above. Some still retain their avatar, some still have a different ct, some aren’t even crossed out. If I could ask, what causes this inconsistency in the banned users’ profiles?

Definitely a bug; My Marowak was still doing Thick Club Damage despite being tricked Choice Specs

The Marowak had an attack boost from Swords Dance. I can faintly make out a green stat modifier behind the numbers for speed under "opponent sees" and its movepool shows that it has already used Swords Dance once. So it would still be at x2 Attack.

Edit: By the way, if you know for certain that something is a bug, try posting it in the Bug reports thread. If you're unsure, try asking in the Simple Questions thread or the Help room on PS

Are you planning on adding a mode where any Pokemon can use any move (including z moves without z crystals) and any stat total (each stat capped at 252)?
This mode mostly exists, and is called Hackmons (or Balanced Hackmons). However, only EVs are capped at 252. Afaik, there is no way to customize base stats themselves in Showdown.
