    Yep, that tends to happen a lot PO, Showdown, everywhere.

    As for my opinions on Showdown, I would deffo use it for an RP idea I have coming, since asking people to download and install a program is a bit off. But owing to a fun little glitch with Pursuit and U-Turn, as well as PO being more complete and having admin on a little PO server, I probably wouldn't use this on a regular basis.

    But dat Hackmons...

    Pokemon Showdown is under heavy load.
    :(

    Please try back in an hour or so; the backup server will open and close intermittently until we sort out the remaining performance issues.
    Some sites just aren't prepared for the traffic they might experience. Especially when everyone wants to make the switch. Still haven't been able to play around too much, but I'm still trying.

    What've they done to it to get 'everyone to make the switch'? (Haven't used it for a while, this is a genuine question, not sarcasm)

    Oh, I see. Well, I forget that since I follow PO and it's tiering system. Truth betold though, Smogon would never keep PO as it's official because it strived for it's own community, which is at it's base not a good way to keep Smogon around there. But I'm glad they're entirely separate entities now, without that uncomfortable overlap

    Still, I love Hackmons, wish PO had that. And being entirely web-based is a huge boon.

    No, it uses Smogon rule, the moderators are same from Smogon, and you don't have a server list to choose, there is only 1 server, Smogon and it link to it automatically.
    This is indeed their Personal Battle Simulator.

    I wish it's server could handle more traffic, too, but, eh, it is still in beta.

    I think I'll be sticking with this, I never liked PO for some reason. Team building is also made easier here since all Pokemon allowed to enter a certain tier and their visble moves are already listed. Its problem of not bring able to handle too much clients can be frustrating, but it will get better.

    Does it crash for inactivity? Mine crashed when I left it for a long while.

    It's just having massive problems keeping up with the traffic is my guess - I used this pre-Smogon and the usercount didn't even reach 50 iirc, and when I got through once they had ~750.

    Yeah, it's really taken off lately. If they don't employ new servers, I'll probably stick to PO.
