so when is showdown going to get fixed? is this a regular issue with network errors? no its not on my end or i couldn't post here.
my trade partner had to afk while i bred his breed and showdown has locked me out and i've lost the chat. I recommended discord in case this happened but he doesn't have the program unfortunately.
No, it's not a regular issue. It SHOULD get fixed today, but unfortunately we're not sure.
 
Hi. I was wondering why I can't play pokemon showdown. The thing is that I go to the pokemon showdown page but it just keeps showing me that it is loading and I have waited for like 3 hours and nothing happened. I asked my friends as well if they had the same problem and they say yes. Any solutions?
 
Is there anywhere I can get intermediate (not beginner, but not necessarily expert) team-building advice for casual-competitive play? I really only play on cart at conventions (for local league tournaments and one-on-one singles) and just use Showdown to digitally plan teams (not a fan of battling on PS). I used to do competitive back in Gen 4 days, but haven't since then and just need advice on some modern team-building strategies. Showdown won't let me post in chats (too new) and I haven't been able to build a team that I feel confident enough to test because I'm so unfamiliar with what's good or not, so I can't post in any of the RMT sections...

Thanks

The best way is to just look over all the resources on smogon and showdown and come up with the best team you think is possible, then either post it here, the team bazaar thread or make an RMT. You can always join the discord for whatever tier you're playing and I'm sure there will be someone there you can chat in real time with. I suggest whittling down your questions and concerns into more specifics so that more players are able to give you their feedback.
 
I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask, but I couldn't find anything better appearently, as this question isn't about Pokémon at all.
Is there a way to embed a website in an iframe with this forum's BBcode? I mean like what you could do in HTML with the code.
HTML:
<iframe src="https://stitch98.github.io/fossil_mashup.html" width="400" height="550">
Content.
</iframe>
I understand allowing iFrame is risky as it exposes you to malwares, but you could allow only GitHub as a domain as many users use it to post simple websites.

Don't think so, no.
 
My first post here, sorry if this is the wrong channel to ask.

In IV breeding, should I always get a low physical atk IV for special atk pokemon like togekiss to prevent against something like foul play?
And should I do this in all cases: low physical atk on special atk pokemon and low special atk on physical atk pokemon?

If your Pokemon lacks physical attacks 0 Atk IVs is optimal, yes (though it's not extremely important). SpA IVs on physical Pokemon don't matter, they can be as high or as low as you want.
 
Hey, it doesn't look like I can change my avatar rn; whenever I click on it, it just gives me the image URL. Did I get barred from changing mine or something, or was the method as to which you change avatars updated?

After requesting a namechange, your profile is locked for a month's time. If it has already been a month since the change, you can request your profile to be unlocked in the same namechange thread.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
When you get a name change the mods lock your profile so you can't change your costum title and avatar. After one month you can post in the name change thread linking your post and you can ask for your profile to be unlocked (see details in the op of the name change thread).
 
How do I find a specific old RMT thread? It's a sand veil abusing team from Generation 6 OU, and it had mega Slowbro, Tyranitar, and Ferrothorn.

Looking through RMT archives or the team showcase should usually do the trick. I tried to check and I'm pretty sure this is what you're looking for!
 
Is there any chance of getting a version of National Dex OU that keeps Dynamax and Gigantomax?

I'm glad the National Dex meta kept Mega Evolutions and Z moves, but it still feels like we're slashing features if we cut Dynamax and Gigantomax just because it tunes the game towards offense instead of defense
