What is Pokemon Showdown?
  • Pokemon Showdown is a web-based competitive battling simulator. It's quite useful, and it was ideal to host our own, so we did! You cna find it here.

How do I become staff in the Showdown server?
  • To become staff, just prove yourself as a helpful member are contributor, and you'll eventually get promoted to a low staff rank if the staff see fit. In addition, all gym leaders are given the moderator status, and forum moderators have powers, too.

Is it possible to do Double/Triple/Rotation battles on this server?
  • It is possible to do Double or Triple battles on this server. However, Triples is bugged at the moment and Rotation battles aren't implemented. They might make an appearance soon, though!

What are CAPmon?
  • CAPmon, also known as Fakemon, are Pokemon made by the Smogon community and are fully fleshed out for use in battle. You can also see finished CAP projects from PokeSun itself on the server.

Why is the server restarting?
  • Occasionally, the server has to restart for either stability reasons or or an update. These restarts typically take a very small amount of time.

Who are the server staff?
  • The server staff can be viewed on the Rules thread. If you're interested in becoming staff for our server, check here. In addition, forum staff and gym leaders automatically gain staff ranks.

Does this server have a github repo I can fork off of?
  • Yep! Feel free to look, or you could, you know, just ask me. c:

@Fenniken25, none of the CAP ideas are completed yet, and the one we're working on right now is still a little way from completion. Once a CAPmon is completed we will look to implement it into our Showdown Server as soon as possible.

Well, I'll try, anyway. Programming a custom CAPmon in takes some time and all that.

Smogon is affiliated with Pokemon Showdown but does not actually own it. Therefore other sites are able to create there own servers to use, like Pyre did for us.
