Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

Thanks for the offer, but this isn't quite accurate enough for what we need. For example (thanks Merritt) Roselia gave 1 SpA EV in Gen 3, but 2 SpA EVs in Gen 4. See https://www.serebii.net/pokedex-rs/315.shtml and https://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/315.shtml
I think... since each generation have his own pokemon description page, EV yields can be included first for the newest generations(and the most difficult part of structuring the database design and front-end changes), this really do not make so much difference for who is playing, because the EV can vary one point or another, but still in the same STAT. In this particular case, Roselia change to 2 point on Gen4 because Budew was included in the evolution chain to be the first (so, 1 ev) as well as Roserade show up with 3EV. Nevertheless, I will still looking for a more complete information including oldest gen. Thank you for valuing the suggestion.

Not sure if this has been suggested before, but a method to favourite/star certain formats under the long list of tiers would be helpful, it's not a massive hassle searching for the specific tier at the moment, but it would be a quicker and more streamlined way to choose the tier u want to battle someone in.
 
Whenever I want to look for DPP UU tournaments, I have to search the RoA subforum, UU subforum, and tournaments subforum. Is there any way to see a list of all tournaments that have open signups and possibly also filter that list by format?
Nevertheless, I will still looking for a more complete information including oldest gen.
Between generations 4 and 5, Ninetales's yield changed from 1 SpA, 1 SpD to 1 SpD, 1 Spe. I don't think you're missing anything else.

On the main page you would always just search for "Signups" and search titles only (assuming whoever is hosting spells it as signups and not sign-ups).

Otherwise no, not really. It used to be required to host all tournaments within the Tournaments forum, but in order to generate traffic elsewhere, to not be bound by the Tournaments forums' approval process, and to create a stronger sense of community we started allowing tournaments to be hosted in the metagame forums. The side effect of course being people now have to look multiple places to see what all tournaments are happening across the forum if that is their major goal when using the forums.

RoA does post a schedule of their RoA nights ahead of time so that you can join the room on the night you want to play some DPP (UU not being guaranteed although considering its popularity a good chance).
 
Member from long time ago. I used to have a trade thread here on Smogon, and the link can be found in my profile. Is there anyway to view an old cached version or find the contents of said trade thread?
 
I’ve seen this question asked before quite a while ago, but the link doesn’t seem to work, so I’ll ask it again. Where do you get those images of The Pokémon models that everyone seems to use?
 
I don't know if this is possible anymore, but would it be possible to read older analyses that had been removed, for example analyses for banned pokemon like Pheromosa? I'm trying to get some ideas for a potential video and I would appreciate it if that could be possible. Thanks!

We took down our caches from the internet archive due to security reasons and when we made the jump to xenforo we lost the ability to see past versions of threads that were made on vbulletin. So, unfortunately no and no as far as I'm aware.
 
is there a way to change the ability of a pokemon in a previous gen, for example gengar with levitate in dpp but cursed body in usum, but change the second ability? i looked in the teambuilder-tables.js and it only shows the functions overrideAbility, overrideHiddenAbility, and removeSecondAbility, but nothing along the lines of overrideSecondAbility or something like that. do i just put overrideSecondAbility into teambuilder-tables.js or is there a function that does that?

You are building a pet mod or something correct? Just want to clarify
 
kinda. im making something along the lines of a pet mod based off of some old articles on the smog
these ones to clarify:
https://www.smogon.com/smog/issue10/retype
https://www.smogon.com/smog/issue11/retyping
https://www.smogon.com/smog/issue7/abilities
its kinda like a theorymon thing for dpp, not sure if im gonna release it or not but i want to make sure this works
so the idea is to make it so that the second ability on a pokemon is modified to whatever i want. so for example i changed hypno's second
ability from forewarn to shadow tag, and i want to make it so that when i go to gen 4 ou it displays shadow tag as hypno's second ability instead of forewarn, like how in every gen other than gen 7 ou gengar's ability is levitate. thats my idea
 
Hi there,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking about this, but I don't think Perish Trap Azumarill with Sap Sipper is legally obtainable in-game. However, it's still usable in Showdown for some reason and one would think the set would be banned for the same reason Soft Boil Unaware Clefable is banned. Unless I'm mistaken, I believe Whirlpool is only obtainable in gen 4 via HM, but Sap Sipper is a HA introduced in gen 5. Is it otherwise possible to obtain a Sap Sipper Perish Trap Azumarill with this set? If so, how would it be obtainable?

Azumarill @ Leftovers
Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 252 HP / 228 SpD / 28 Spe
Calm Nature
- Perish Song
- Whirlpool
- Protect
- Toxic

Transferring a Pokemon from the gen 1 or 2 virtual console gives it the Hidden Ability; gen 2 Azumarill can learn Whirlpool. Conversely, non-HA Whirlpool Azumarill is legal via the gen 4 route you described.

Thanks! At what point would Azumarill learn Perish Song in this sequence via gen 2 Azumarill?
 
Guys. I am new here. I had a question. I heard that evasion is banned in ubers and below. But I saw this battle where this player in ou used acupressure and they were able to get 3xevasion.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-932036569

I was wondering if you knew about this. Maybe acupressure should be nerfed or banned to AG ? Thanks.
The "evasion" clause really only bans double team and minimize. Accupressure is usually too easy to counter and not worth banning.
