    Ete's Cradily's shell bell restored its HP a little!

    Shell Bell. It's minor, but it's a message bug.

    I'm not sure if this is the right spot.
    When you force an opponent to switch pokes (dragon tail, roar, etc), the text does not display the pokemon's that is coming in real name. So rather then saying:
    nickname (realname) was dragged in.
    It says:
    nickname was dragged in.


    I'm not sure if there is another place you can see the poke's real name. But if there isn't, it becomes quiet hard to figure out the poke for those of us who don't have all the 5th gen names memorized.

    I know. But you can still see which pokemon it is. It's just added on PO for log keeping's sake.

    well you need his name to look up his stats (that is what I meant by figuring out what poke it is)... but I found out that you can see the pokes name by mousing over his pokeball so its all good XD.

    Yeah but when you save a log, and want to post it somewhere, you have to have the pokemon name in it.

    For the Rough Skin and Iron Barbs abilities, I believe the message should end with an exclamation point. It ends with no punctuation, e.g. "Nattorei's Iron Barbs hurts the foe's Heracross"

    The problem is tyranitar is dead. And it showed that the turn before too. Maybe test it again, but I'm sure its a bug.

    Sorry for the bump (?), I'm pretty sure this belongs here...

    Wonder Room has two different effects listed on Pokemon Online. In Teambuilder it says Defense and S.Defense are swapped for five turns, but when used in a battle it says S. Attack and Defense are swapped. Which one is wrong? Serebii says Def and S.def but I remember some confusion about it on the website.

    I have major problems- my version of pokemon online is in swedish, and gives out the completely wrong text for just about every effect. for example, instead of the sharp rocks mentioned when stealth rock is used, it says it can't be used because of taunt(but it still works). Taunt gives the message "Enemy became drowsy". In swedish of course.

    Can I somehow change it to english?

    When you first open Pokemon Online and it brings you to the screen that lets you choose between going online, going to the teambuilder, etc., at the top there is a tab labeled languages where you can change it.

    Just found this in a Challenge Cup battle.

    The foe's Mijumaru used Fling!
    The foe's Mijumaru flung its Cornn Berry!
    Vibrava lost 7 HP! (3% of its health)
    Vibrava stole and ate Vibrava's Cornn Berry!

    Whilst that is sort of what happens, it really doesn't make sense...

    Sorry to double post, but they are 4 days apart, and completely unrelated, so here goes.

    When you hover over Thunder Wave it says it hits regardless of type immunities...
    [​IMG]

    It doesn't though,

    Start of turn 1
    Mamoswine used Superpower!
    It's not very effective...
    The foe's Deoxys-D lost 16% of its health!
    Mamoswine's Attack fell!
    Mamoswine's Defense fell!
    Mamoswine is hurt by its Life Orb!

    The foe's Deoxys-D used Thunder Wave!
    But it failed!

    I assume this was written in at the start of Gen V when there was the rumour it hit Ground-types and was never removed.

    The foe's Politoed is hurt by poison!

    Octillery's Inconsistent lowers its Accuracy!

    The foe's Politoed's perish count fell to 3.
    Octillery's perish count fell to 3.[/HIDE]

    The move "Wild Bolt" has the name "Wild bolt" in the simulator. The "bolt" needs capitalized.

    Or you could just change it to Wild Charge...And I know that won't happen for some time...

    Thunder Wave says, "Not affected by type immunities."

    Belly Drum raises attack by "12 stages"
    Raise to +6 would probably be simpler.

    After White Herb is used up in battle, it shows as white herb when it should be White Herb (with capitalization).

    A lot of the old abilities need updating I think, due to the way it is done in-game with that arrow thingo that come across the Pokémon and says

    Scrafty's Moxie!

    Then in the box below...

    Scrafty's Attack rose!


    So, we probably need to work out how we are going to set that out in the simulator.

    A lot of the actual messages have changed for old abilities because of this as well. One example is Sturdy. Instead of its current message, it just has the ability arrow thingo, then 'Gigalith endured the hit!'

    He has the English patch. Inconsistent should be Moody.

    When a Pokemon is using an attack such as Cotton Guard or Tail Glow, it says
    %'s Defense/Sp.Atk Rose Sharply!
    But when I saw an Altaria use Cotton Guard in-game the message was:
    Altaria's Defense rose drastically!

    So I guess that needs to be fixed.

    I can confirm this as well. I remember seeing this in-game a few weeks ago, but I couldn't remember what it said.

    Start of turn 18
    Tangela used Leaf Storm!
    It's not very effective...
    The foe's Shelmet lost 48% of its health!
    Tangela's Sp. Att. sharply fell!
    The foe's Shelmet used its Red Card on Tangela!
    The foe's Shelmet is solidly rooted to the ground!

    Happened during a CC battle I had once. I had Ingrain used on Tangela, but when Shelmet used its Red Card, it said it was used on Shelmet.

    In Generation 4 (I'm not sure of the other gens), if Memento is blocked by a sub it gives an incorrect message.

    I can go test this in-game tomarrow, but I'd assume that the second faiting shouldn't occur.
