November 14, 2018

Just a minor patch for me but major patch for Pokemon Go

Version 5.5.9

October 26, 2018

  • Gengar with Lick and Psychic will be available on November 3rd
  • Added Giratina and other new pokemon to available pokemon
  • Improved table view for raid counters

Version 5.5.8

October 23, 2018

More ghost raids

Version 5.5.7

October 23, 2018

Giratina officially announced

  • Raid list will be updated later today

I'd put my money on Gengar being a raid boss along with some gen 4 ghosts!

Version 5.5.7

October 20, 2018

Meteor Mash official stats

  • Almost as good as Frenzy Plant.
  • All raid results generated
  • Other pages are regenerating and will be released soon

Version 0.0.1

October 19, 2018

Theo was born

  • Unknown future stats

Version 5.5.6

October 16, 2018

More Gen 4 mons

  • All known final evolutions added as possible counters

Version 5.5.5

October 16, 2018

Gen 4 raids

  • All the new pokemon are tier 1

Version 5.5.4

October 16, 2018

Gen 4 release

  • New pokemon!
  • Stat rebalance reverted
  • Regenerating all results. Site may be slow for a bit

It seems they have some work to do to handle the stat rebalance so I reverted. This way the raid counters will be correct

Version 5.5.3

October 15, 2018

Move rebalance and improvements to Raid Results

  • New stats!
  • Added Graphs to raid results
  • Added early custom graph support for Patreons
  • Fixed issue preventing automatic assistants from working on Tier 6 raids
  • Added new images for alola pokemon
  • Regenerating all results

Plan was to release these 2 separately but Niantic decided to surprise me on a Monday. Unfortunately my current architecture does not support running multiple sets of game masters so the sim results will not be completely accurate. They are really only different in number of deaths though so I don't feel too bad about breaking the sims for current actual stats. Besides I expect the new stats tomorrow.

Version 5.5.2

October 10, 2018

More public profile work

  • Fixes issue where the trainer page was displaying Mystic when it should have displayed Valor
  • Added battle parties to public profile
  • Added move information to pokebox selects
  • Adjusted UI slightly for mobile

Version 5.5.1

October 9, 2018

Minor bug fixes

  • Fixes error message on viewing profiles
  • Prevents double load of profiles

These were related ;)

Version 5.5.0

October 9, 2018

Beta release of public profiles!

  • Added an initial public profile implementation!
  • Added search by name or user id

Let me know what you think!

Version 5.4.25

October 4, 2018

A few updates

  • Privacy policy updated to make it clear that your pokebox and trainer information are not considered sensitive personaly information (SPI)

Trainer name and to a lesser extent Pokemon names may be considered peronally identifiable information(PII) by someone. These features are entirely optional and are intended to be share friendly. Yes this means finding a friend by trainer name is something I hope to add soon!

Version 5.4.24

October 3, 2018

Minor tweaks mostly to handle a questionable 3rd party export format

  • Now detects said questionable format and switches "1" to mean false and "0" to mean true
  • Now uses the 'Name' field to mean either Pokemon or Nickname depending on the situation
  • Export columns are now more sensibly ordered

Note to developers out there, if you are going to allow exports of your data or make some public api, make sure its understandable by humans and matches standard programming conventions. Represent enums as strings and booleans as true/false. Make your variable names make sense, etc.

Version 5.4.23

October 2, 2018

A few bug fixes and improved bulk support

  • Deoxys now has Thunderbolt
  • Advice power up now correctly saves ivs
  • Bulk import no longer requires a shiny and lucky column
  • Bulk export added!
  • Bulk import now supports an id column and an importedId column. You can use importedId to assign your own ids to Pokemon

Some testing has been done that you can export your pokemon, edit in google sheets, and reimport to update your pokemon in place. No more delete all and reimport. This is not to say enough testing has been done. Please report bugs to [email protected]. Please include the file you are importing along with browser and device.

Version 5.4.22

October 1, 2018

Update share images and descriptions

  • Deoxys will now show up for Kyogre for example

Version 5.4.21

October 1, 2018

Update for Deoxys

  • Raid results are being regenerated

Version 5.4.20

September 27, 2018

Raid update and minor tweaks

  • New raids are out!
  • Updated share descriptions and images

Version 5.4.19

September 26, 2018

Deoxys update! Official Deoxys stats have been found in the game master along with new moves.

  • Deoxys moves updated
  • Regen of all results

Was waiting for the game master update before I regenerated from last Thursday's Mewtwo change. Glad I did!

Version 5.4.18

September 26, 2018

Performance and Share Link improvements

  • Reenabled javascript split
  • Much improved share description and image for raid counters

Version 5.4.17

September 24, 2018

Another bug fix

  • PvP now properly supports dodging
  • Raid simulator now remembers rejoin time and battle parties better.

Version 5.4.16

September 21, 2018

Minor bug fix

  • Bulk upload should work properly again

Version 5.4.15

September 20, 2018

Full Mewtwo support.

  • Mewtwo has been implemented as a Tier 6 raid with 50% additional hp.
  • Tier 6 raids for other raid bosses available under custom raids.
  • Fixed Tier ? functionality in some cases

It is unknown wether they truly made a tier 6, customized Mewtwo or just changed tier 5 permanently. We will see.

Version 5.4.14

September 20, 2018

Initial Mewtwo release. Changes to support new 60K cp still to come

Version 5.4.13

September 18, 2018

Niantic keeps up the big news with a Deoxys leak

  • Deoxys readded to raids

Pretty strong evidence in this Silph Road reddit thread. That said, no information on how Deoxys forms will be handled. Our best guesses have been implemented and will be updated as further news comes out

Version 5.4.12

September 17, 2018

Meganium update

  • Frenzy Plant added for Meganium
  • Updated legacy date for birds

Raid counters regenerated but not the rest of the rankings and pokedex as Mewtwo is likely getting a new move on Thursday

Version 5.4.11

September 14, 2018

Hopefully final update for raids

  • Removed a few raids

Version 5.4.10

September 13, 2018

Quite a bit of confusion today as raids have changed multiple times

  • Added and removed raids yet again

The raid list still may not be 100% up to date. There were a few hours where other raids were showing up that have now disappeared. Hopefully a good list will pop up soon.

Version 5.4.9

September 13, 2018

Tweaked raid list

  • Added and removed raids

Version 5.4.8

September 13, 2018

The birds have arrived along with a raid rotation

  • Added new raids

Version 5.4.7

September 10, 2018

Ultra rewards announced!

  • Updated breaking news

Version 5.4.6

September 9, 2018

Spent some time fixing up the raid simulator because it was frustrating me

  • Numerous bugs with parameters not saving between pages fixed
  • Added rejoin to the raid simualtor
  • Tweaked the combat log to be a little less annoying and a bit faster.
  • Fixed share image for raid boss sim results
  • Fixed gen 4 typos
  • Tweaked gen 4 movesets (will affect pokebox only for now)
  • Added Arceus - Fairy

I think I got all the parameter bugs but please let me know if I missed any!

Version 5.4.5

September 8, 2018

Bug fix

  • Fix translations cache
  • Fix issue with language change drop down

Version 5.4.4

September 7, 2018

Big update

  • Removed Sky Attack from Moltres as a raid boss. Moltres will only have fire moves
  • Added gen 4 legendaries
  • Fixed TDO sort orders (ranking and pokedex pages will have to wait)
  • Reduced server lag for charge moves from 98 to the intended 70.
  • When the sim decides to use quick attack only, will use the quick attack 28ms lag instead of the charge move lag of 70ms

Ranking and Pokedex results have not been updated due to server load concerns. Raid results have been updated. Thanks to /u/333-blue for the bug report

Version 5.4.3

September 4, 2018

Minor patch

  • Added last resort to flareon.

Version 5.4.2

September 4, 2018

Improved battle sim share links!

  • Fixed issue with moves being incorrect in description when shared.
  • Added 168,000 share images for every combination of combatants :)

Still to come, raid share links. If you have ideas what they should look like, send them my way!

Version 5.4.1

August 31, 2018

Minor bug fixes!

  • Added all pokemon to possible raids
  • Maybe fixed share links (we'll see)

Version 5.4.0

August 29, 2018

Massive behind the scenes changes and Moltres!

  • Moltres has been added with Sky Attack
  • All results regenerated. Bug fixes and Sky Attack!
  • Every URL is now more shareable on social media and discord. They will have images, title and description
  • Better raid result page shows info while the counters are loading.
  • Pages are now generated on the server side now. This should hopefully fix my search engine woes and speed up slower devices

Improvements on sharing will come. Dynamic image generation, share buttons and more. I might even be able to make the site work without javascript.

Moltres currently has all 4 charge moves as possible defendsive movesets as I have heard conflicting reports as to what movesets Moltres will have. I suspect it will be sky attack but I don't know for sure. The counters don't change that much so leaving them all in is safe. Sorry for the long wait on the regeneration of some of the buggy results but I wanted to wait for Moltres announcement.

Version 5.3.24

August 24, 2018

Ho-Oh has returned again, and is duoable this time.

  • Smack Down Tyranitar punching bag has returned. It can be shiny and some people are exited about this.

Version 5.3.23

August 22, 2018

Sim update, this will only affect pokedex for now.

  • Rankings with variable dodging have been improved. The number of counters found has been increased. As before, the most accurate counters list is on the pokedex pages
  • TDO on defense has been changed from the TDO of the defender to the TDO of the attacker. This should make more sense for everyone (blissey #1 TDO!)

Note I am NOT regenerating all rankings at this time. I suspect there may be another Pokemon Go update in the next couple days and I am working on something else.

Version 5.3.22

August 21, 2018

New raids have been added again!

  • Updated all known raids as of 8:00am Pacific Time.

Middle of the night update is very unusual timing. It will be curious if this pattern continues

Version 5.3.21

August 16, 2018

New raids have been added!

  • Updated all known raids as of 3:00 Pacific Time.

It looks like gen 4 preparation time everyone!

Version 5.3.20

August 16, 2018

Regirock preparation!

  • Updated currently available raids to feature Regirock

We expect a full rotation of new Pokemon to come. Expect more water and fighting Tier 2, 3 and 4 raids.

Version 5.3.19

August 12, 2018

Minor patch

  • Hurricane added as possible move for Articuno

Version 5.3.18

August 12, 2018

Yet another bug in Unknown moves

  • Fixed cases where Unknown moves was the same as a particular moveset

Regenerating all raids now.

Version 5.3.17

August 10, 2018

Full support for Last Resort

  • 2900ms with an abysmal 2700ms damage window start makes this move very dodgable

Full regeneration of files starting now

Version 5.3.16

August 9, 2018

Bulk import bug fixes

  • Handle '1' and 'T' for Shiny and Lucky, not just 'true' or 'false'
  • Show shiny/lucky in bulk import preview
  • Show parse errors for invalid values of lucky and shiny. Will default to false and is not required

This was breaking bulk import for some 3rd parties

Version 5.3.15

August 8, 2018

Quick bug fix release. Thanks TygerDave for the quick bug reports!

  • Fixed some display issues with the new lucky and shiny code
  • Fixed powerup costs in some situations
  • Tweaked server settings again for stability

The rollback is due to google being unable to support the performance speed up. It is causing an enormous problem in people being able to find the pages they are looking for and more importantly, preventing new users from finding the site. A workaround is my #1 priority for the site now

Version 5.3.14

August 7, 2018

A release that is bittersweet for me

  • Added preliminary support for Last Resort. It has been added to Eevee and all Eeveelutions. Based on video analysis, the duration has been set to 3.3s and power of 90. Current support is on Pokebox and simulation pages. Full ranking support will come after the exact durations are released.
  • Add support for shiny pokemon. This is display only for pokebox and all pokebox results
  • Add support for lucky pokemon. Same as shiny but also includes support in the advice page
  • Rolled back the split site changes from July 29th.

The rollback is due to google being unable to support the performance speed up. It is causing an enormous problem in people being able to find the pages they are looking for and more importantly, preventing new users from finding the site. A workaround is my #1 priority for the site now

Version 5.3.13

August 3, 2018

Minor tweaks

  • Try and prevent page loads from getting 'stuck' in peoples browsers. See open bug ticket
  • Tweaked back end parameters slightly for better performance

Version 5.3.12

July 31, 2018

Sim tweaks to provide more accurate results

  • Fixed edge condition with dodge all weave where it would get 'stuck'
  • Made random move selection less random. Will now rotate between seeds to provide more accurate results with fewer monte carlo iterations
  • Regenerated all results

Mewtwo vs. Tyranitar had a particularly bad seed and even 500 sims wasn't enough to fix it. Derandomizing was the only way to get a good result. There are some downsides to this for percentiles but overall I believe everyone will like this better

Version 5.3.11

July 30, 2018

Minor patch

  • Fixed wide screen pokebox and bulk delete

Version 5.3.10

July 29, 2018

Performance boost time!

  • Fixed slowness of pokebox list page
  • Fixed slowness of pokebox delete page
  • Fixed slowness of pokemon dialog selects
  • Fixed slowness of pokebox dialog selects
  • Split site into smaller pieces so initial load will be much faster
  • Fixed sort by estimator in 'Single' view

More to come!

Version 5.3.9

July 20, 2018

Bug squash time

  • Fixed crash bug on mobile with combat logs
  • Moved move buffer time to damageStartMs to prevent double single bar moves

I am NOT regenerating all results right now as there are some additional bugs to investigate. These bug fixes will only apply to pokebox simulations for now

Version 5.3.8

July 19, 2018

Registeel is out along with other new raids!

  • Added all the new raids
  • Bumped up the server size a bit. Thanks for knocking over the servers again you jerks!

Overall the new architecture is working well. Unfortunately the memory size was too low and thats why they fell over this time. Autoscaling is working well other than that.

Version 5.3.7

July 18, 2018

Quick fix today

  • Added handling for empty pokebox when loading battle party page

Thanks for the bug reports everyone

Version 5.3.6

July 17, 2018

Minor patches to address a bug and a usability issue

  • Added new short link for custom raid levels for Zapdos
  • Fixed battle party edit thanks Crystal

The Zapdos link was causing people to get confused with not seeing their Pokebox results.

Version 5.3.5

July 12, 2018

Zapdos is getting Thunder Shock and a sim update

  • Added Thunder Shock for Zapdos
  • Added handling of energy ping pong bug where getting hit by a special after you use your 1 bar special does not really give you energy. Energy gain/spend from specials moved to damage window start
  • Added handling of bug where queued attacks when you die on the server side must complete before a new attack will be chosen. Remaining time to next attack added to death delay. Note this is applied for both quick and special attacks
  • Reduced death time from 1.9s to 1.0s as the above bug explains most of the timing issues.

Overall this is a pretty big nerf to long duration moves and full bar moves, especially those with a late damage window. Frenzy Plant looks even better now on the other hand. Simulator updates due to research by /u/Lachanceuse100. I did not reduce the delay all the way down to 0.5s for now until I get more feedback and do some more research.

Version 5.3.4

July 9, 2018

Post Articuno day cleanup and pokebox usability

  • Removed Articuno from current list. Added to special events
  • Updated max level for pokebox to account for weather boost
  • Fixed broken weather drop down on rankings page. Thanks for the bug report 劉冠緯
  • Added ability to save recommended party as a battle party
  • Added quick power up to advice page

New usability features by popular demand! More usability improvements to come!

Version 5.3.3

July 5, 2018

Articuno was released as a Tier 4!

  • Updated links for Articuno Day

Version 5.3.2

July 5, 2018

Happy birthday to me! More bug fixes and changes.

  • New estimator sort for the raid pages
  • Fixed bug with assistants dying too late. Thanks /u/Lertburut for the bug report
  • Added Articuno to current raids
  • Fixed cp input issue

Please let me know if you find any issues! Site will be a little slow as the caches populate. Lots of servers running though to make it fast.

Version 5.3.1

July 3, 2018

Minor bug fixes and changes.

  • Fixed mobile left side to collapse after selecting a page
  • Added back bottom bar for desktop users
  • Made menus not move around so much on mobile
  • Made bigger buttons for account info
  • Moved language select on mobile to make room

Please let me know if you find any issues! Site will be a little slow as the caches populate. Lots of servers running though to make it fast.

Version 5.3.0

July 3, 2018

Massive redesign. Hopefully everyone likes it. Oh and Niantic pushed out Hydro Cannon so all new results too. Hydro Cannon is a great move but unfortunately Blastoise does not have good enough stats for it to be too useful.

  • Rearranged almost everything
  • Added tabs
  • Added buttons
  • Removed bottom and side nav bar for desktop
  • Added top nav bar for desktop
  • Hydro Cannon added.

Please let me know if you find any issues! Site will be a little slow as the caches populate. Lots of servers running though to make it fast.

Version 5.2.1

June 28, 2018

Minor bug fixes.

  • Fixed weather drop down on Pokedex
  • Fixed single view on rankings page

As always thanks for the bug reports!

Version 5.2.0

June 26, 2018

Massive support for friends.

  • Added friends drop downs to Gym Battle, Raid Battle and Raid Guide
  • Added big drop downs for Weather and Friends to battle results
  • Added missing Alola pokemon (other than Golem and Exeggutor)

Major performance optimizations, including methodology changes

  • Now limits the number of moves to 12 on raid counter results(sorry Mew).
  • Now uses the results from level 40v40, no dodging, no friends, with the selected weather for the results for all other pages

Previously the cap was 36 moves which is just silly and was causing some timeouts on the back end. Also was using dodging which didn't really affect results in most situations. This will greatly increase performance on the slowest ranking pages.

Version 5.1.6

June 22, 2018

Fixed Unown.

  • Users with Unown in their pokebox can now perform calculations

Tried to get Unown working for all the letters and ended up breaking it entirely

Version 5.1.5

June 20, 2018

Looks like only Regice is here.

  • Added Alola forms
  • Updated raids with new raids
  • Moved Registeel and Regirock to future raids

Kept Registeel and Regirock as available attackers because they barely show up anywhere

Version 5.1.4

June 20, 2018

The Regis are here.

  • Updated raids
  • Added Regice, Registeel and Regirock to available attackers

Version 5.1.3

June 18, 2018

Minor bug fix release

  • Fixed drop down for random assistants

Version 5.1.2

June 18, 2018

Minor bug fix release

  • Fixed drop down for attack strategy

Version 5.1.1

June 16, 2018

Bug fix release

  • Tons of tiny back end changes to prevent full errors. If you see Unown characters you probably did something wrong
  • Made the site work for IE 11. No I don't know why anyone would use such a browser. It's a good way to get a virus but as you wish
  • Bumped max pokemon for Fanatics to 2000 and Patreon level supporters to 600.
  • Increased number of pokemon considered for custom sims by 100%
  • Increased min server cluster size 40% and max server cluster size 100%.

Overall the site should have fewer errors and much better performance, even on release days. Thanks to all the Patreon supporters for making this all possible

Version 5.1.0

June 14, 2018

Smack Down for Tyranitar and simulation improvements for today

  • Smack down has arrived for Tyranitar!
  • Death time increased to 1.9 seconds

Version 5.0.3

June 1, 2018

Another stability and performance patch

Version 5.0.2

Raid bosses have reverted

  • Fixed an issue where Piloswine was showing up as a tier 4
  • Fixed bug with 'show this result without power ups'
  • Reverted raid bosses
  • Tweaked auto scaling code, should be better performance when big events happen

Version 4.6.12

May 14, 2018

Initial simulations of Charizard with Blast Burn have been released based on this youtube video. It is a 2 bar 100 power attack with aproximately the same speed as Frenzy Plant. Site will be a little slow today as everything needs to be regenerated

  • Removed some caching on battle parties to attempt to resolve bugs

Version 4.6.8

Now to add some more data to the results page and make it pretty. Almost ready for official release!

A bug fix update.

  • Fixed issue with Hidden Power Porygon showing up as a top defender by time to win
  • Fixed time to win for Blissey as an attacker vs. Blissey
  • Fixed bug regarding dodging

This will hopefully be the last sim bug fix for awhile

Version 4.6.5

April 26, 2018

Yet another sim update. Battle party work is ongoing

  • Added ability for logged in users to select number of assistants for each raid
  • Default number of assistants reduced from 6 to 4
  • Fixed bug regarding battle party defense
  • For performance reasons, fanatic patreons are capped at Monte Carlo - Gold if using more than 5 assitants

New sim results will take some time to roll out

Version 4.6.4

April 23, 2018

Another big sim update with support for configurable number of extra random trainers

  • Configurable number of random trainers for raid simulator
  • Option to run without random trainers on the raid simulator drill downs

Decided to rename from assistants to Extra Random Trainers to hopefully make things more clear

Version 4.6.3

A quick fix for estimator to handle very tanky raid bosses like Lapras

Version 4.6.2

April 18, 2018

  • Fix for display issue with potions on many pages
  • Added assistants information to help explain why random attackers are showing up in the combat log now

Version 4.6.0

April 15, 2018

Extensive back end changes for today's update. This is further prep work for full battle party support

  • Tier 4 and 5 raid bosses now receive 5 assistant level 30-40 battle parties.
  • Drill down raid simulations now show combat log and combat summaries taking into account
  • Extended max 5 man raid from 290s to 298 with a 2.5s delayed start
  • Bosses now have exact health in sims
  • Many formulas have been reworked/tweaked including win%, overall %, power, TDO
  • Win % now shows your chance of winning with 5 assistant battle parties
  • Combat log now shows assistants with multi colors
  • Faster loading landing page
  • Faster loading pokebox

Assistant battle parties are currently a random selection of up to two battle parties containing Dragonite, Rayquaza, Raikou, Kyogre, Tyranitar, Groudon, Machamp and Golem. Raid simulation will still end when your attacker battle party dies.

Some slowness may occur due to the new higher quality sims. I will keep an eye on it.

Version 4.5.7

April 10, 2018

New Kanto region raid bosses are here

  • Support for all new raid bosses
  • Fixed css issue with new patreon messages

Version 4.5.6

April 7, 2018

Some major changes for the site today. Pokebattler is now 100% supported by Patreon. That means users like you are my only source of funding. I expect this to take some time to build up to the same level as before, so I will set monthly goals to keep Pokebattler ad free

  • Removed ads for a one month trial
  • Removed $1 Patreon tier
  • Replaced $1 Patreon tier with free Patreon tier that gives a pokebox size of 75 just for logging in
  • Reduced $4 tier to $3
  • Added nag messages. Yes they go away if you log in with Patreon.
  • Fixed bug with bulk import requiring cp if you put in iv and level

This site has grown so much since my first alpha 2 release back in September 2016. If I had known just how long those features I wanted to build would take who knows if I would have gotten this far.

I truly detest ads and apparently most of you do too with a huge number of ad blockers and even google analytics blockers out there. That's fine. I use ad blockers too. And for most sites it wouldn't matter. But this site is extremely expensive per user with custom results and expensive servers. So go to my Patreon, read why we think you should donate and give me a few raid passes... or not.

Version 4.5.5

April 2, 2018

Latias was given Outrage and new raids are out so yet another release

  • Added Outrage to Latias
  • Regenerating results for the 5th time in 3 days

Results will roll out over the next few hours

Version 4.5.4

April 2, 2018

Latios and Latias are coming out today!

  • Regenerating results for the 4th time in 3 days
  • Results will roll out to users over the next few hours

Version 4.5.3

April 1, 2018

Getting reports of some people being stuck with bad settings so decided to do a much better job of error handling

  • Added error handling to every remote call
  • On error, will reset most of your settings to make sure you are not stuck

There are probably better ways to handle stuck settings but errors are rare enough I think this is ok.

Version 4.5.2

April 1, 2018

Just realized I forget something very important. Sorry about that

  • Added Mew as possible Attacker
  • Added more translations

Version 4.5.1

March 31, 2018

Whats a big release without a bug or 2?

  • Fixed localhost link
  • Fixed raids showing unknown quick move, that should only show up for Mew

Regenerating again, things are rolling out over the next hour

Version 4.5.0

March 31, 2018

Some major changes today to support Mew!

  • Mew has been added. While he is not expected to be a raid boss, if you do simulate him as a raid boss, he will have a random quick move
  • Mew, Celebi, Jirachi and Doxys removed from tier 5 raids
  • Now only returns results for best 3 quick attack moves per special. This affects hidden power as well although it will return the best 3 plus a random hidden power
  • Maximum number of movesets reduced from infinite to 36
  • Number of best counter movesets shown on pokedex reduced from infinite to 3 to match the 3 shown on defender
  • TDO sort added. TDO shown is the average damage done by each pokemon before dying. Power on the other hand is percent of damage done by all the pokemon involved within the battle time.

Mew has 350 different possible movesets and the results for mew are 45MB in size. Its simply not possible to return all results. It is too slow to generate and far too large a result. This seems to be the best approach that returns a large variation of special attacks.

Version 4.4.6

March 26, 2018

Bug fixes and more translations with this release!

  • Fixed Frenzy Plant bulk upload
  • Added lots of translations
  • Fixed a nasty bug with upload of sub level 30 pokemon by cp

Thanks to all the community contributors who have helped translate on translate.pokebattler.com. It really makes a difference for non-native speakers.

Version 4.4.5

March 25, 2018

Frenzy Plant for Venusaur is released with a 2.6s duration!

  • Frenzy Plant added.

Enjoy community day everyone!

Version 4.4.4

March 18, 2018

My flight to Europe was delayed a day, so a couple minor bug fixes

  • Better handling of unknown pokemon and battle parties. If you see an Unown, you did something wrong
  • Added better instructions to the pvp and raid simulation pages

Version 4.4.3

March 17, 2018

Minor bug fix

  • Battle Parties that have had a pokemon deleted will now not be totally broken

Version 4.4.2

March 16, 2018

Lugia was officially released and there was a raid rotation

  • Raid rotation applied. Manectic, Jolteon and others added
  • New power for sky attack added, about a 10% dps boost vs Machamp
  • Initial frame by frame analysis for Frenzy Plant added for Venusaur. Looks like 5% less dps than Exeggutor vs Groudon
  • Number of sims for Hidden Power of particular types reduced one monte carlo level due to overloading the servers. Stupid Starmie. Hidden Power Random is still full sims.

Have fun with the new raids everyone. I expect there to be no updates for the next couple weeks

Version 4.4.1

March 16, 2018

A quick fix for the pvp issue

  • Pvp now works. Oops

Version 4.4.0

March 15, 2018

A big release today, with the official beta release of battle parties! You can now store your battle parties on pokebattler and use them to fight a raid boss or to fight your friends in pvp combat!

  • Tweaked an edge case with Power that caused issues with Claydol. Super tanky pokemon will now have power capped by the amount of damage they did within the time constraints of a raid. I have NOT regenerated all results as this mostly affects custom sims which wil automatically update
  • Added battle parties! You can currently create and edit. Delete will come eventually
  • Pvp is here
  • Better Raid simulator is here
  • Lugia is back
  • Servers are doubled again because you people are insane

Warning: I am leaving on vacation from 3/17 to 3/24. If there are changes such as new raid bosses during that time, I will try and make them from my laptop when I'm at the hotel but I can't promise.

Patreon users have higher battle party support but even free users have the same number of battle parties as they have in game. A much better UI for selecting battle parties will come after I get back from vacation. There will also be a more advanced version of the raid simulator too!

Version 4.3.7

March 5, 2018

Niantic decided to push out some new raid bosses while I had a bug performing too many calculations for raids and one of the new raids has hidden power, a very expensive raid calculation. Not a good combo, and the site was very slow and had a few errors for 30 minutes, sorry everyone.

  • Added new raid bosses!
  • Fixed issue where raid bosses had legacy moves
  • Minor text fixes

Regenerating all results in the background. Increased the server size 50% for now.

Version 4.3.6

March 5, 2018

New sim features and support for legacy moves. Thanks to all the Patreon supporters for helping provide these higher quality sims

  • Simulation quality for Monte Carlo - Silver has been increased from 25 to 50 and for Unknown movesets form 25 to 200.
  • Simulation quality for Monte Carlo - Bronze has been increased from 10 to 25 for Unknown movesets.
  • Added legacy move information to many areas
  • Removed impossible Dragonite moves
  • Changed attack strategy to automatically not use charge moves if it is worse than the quick move dps
  • Removed impossible Dragonite moves
  • Fixed bug on battle page if not logged in
  • Removed Groudon and Kyogre from current raids

The simulation quality changes for non-Patreon users and the lowest level Patreon supporters should reduce some of the funny bumps in the Advice section. Apparently people expected accuracy at the +-2% level.

Version 4.3.5

February 28, 2018

More bugs!

  • Battle page could get bugged out and unfixable with some settings
  • Battle party page could too but I dont think this affected anyone
  • Removed battle party link for non-pokebox results
  • Added caught cp range to raids page

Sorry about the bugs everyone. Currently working on some third party integrations I think people will appreciate.

Version 4.3.4

February 26, 2018

One more bug

  • Fixed order on advice list page

Version 4.3.3

February 26, 2018

A couple bug fixes, I hope these are the last.

  • Fixed fight page after going to battle page
  • Minor text fixes

Version 4.3.2

February 25, 2018

Even more bug fixes

  • Fixed erroneous top message
  • Fix for moves being incorrect for battle party
  • Fix for run random again for battle party

Version 4.3.2

February 25, 2018

Some more bug fixes

  • Fixed drill down results from raids
  • Adjusted estimator for more accuracy
  • Fix advice page ordering

The code for estimator was rewritten. It should be better now.

Version 4.3.1

February 23, 2018

Rushed out the release this morning so of course there were bugs

  • Fixed battle party to use top 6 counters not bottom 6
  • Fixed battle party to use counters in rank order not random.
  • Fixed link to battle party result

Enjoy the community today tomorrow! Hopefully there will be surprise dragonite raids!

Version 4.3.0

February 23, 2018

Our first battle party release is finally here! See how your top 6 performers fare in sims

  • Beta release for recommended battle parties
  • Added Kyogre and Groudon back into raids as they are back in the mix for a week.

More to come on the battle party front and probably some more features for raid simulations

Version 4.2.5

February 16, 2018

Another release, this one with more behind the scenes work to support battle parties and more bug fixes

  • Added support for Draco Meteor Dragonite. Short answer is Outrage is almost always better but doesnt look as cool ;)
  • Reworked all raid and advice urls to better support custom raids. No more hacky cp!
  • Changed login so it will keep you logged in if you log in at least every 2 weeks
  • Fixed some issues with bad urls

Version 4.2.4

February 13, 2018

Patreon users at the $4 Supporter level now do not see ads! The next Patreon support goal removes ads for all Patreon users.

Version 4.2.4

February 12, 2018

A couple more bug fixes

  • Add pokemon properly shows stats on the left side again
  • You can cancel out of deleting pokemon (oops)

Version 4.2.3

February 12, 2018

Minor bug fix

  • Legacy and Future Tier 5 dropdowns now work properly

Version 4.2.2

February 12, 2018

Worked hard over the weekend to support forms properly. They took a surprising amount of work to get right

  • Deoxys and Castform are now fully supported. Deoxys also had his stats updated to their probable values.
  • Rearranged the raid page to make it more clear which legendaries are which and to order them properly

Deoxys stats are pretty terrible for Pokemon Go. I expect a revisit of the formula. They just don't make sense. If your defense is so low you cant usually get your special off whats the point?

Version 4.2.1

February 9, 2018

New pokemon are out and a bunch of new raids!

  • Added all the current raids to the raids page and moved legacy raids out
  • Added new pokemon and Rayquaza

The world first Rayquaza duo challenge was beaten in just 26 minutes. Working on a video now then off to catch some new Pokemon. Plenty of time to figure out irrelevant Castform tomorrow.

Version 4.2.1

February 8, 2018

Niantic announced ahead of time, new Pokemon! Salamence, Altaria, Metagross and Rayquaza have all been oofficially confirmed

  • Renumbered previous version since it broke backwards compatibility
  • Added new pokemon and Rayquaza

Rayquaza and I assume the final main batch of gen 3 is being released tomorrow. If additional special pokemon are released such as Castform that requires changes I will work on it this weekend.

Version 4.2.0

February 4, 2018

Bugfixes and behind the scenes work for today's release

  • Fixed issue with editing Pokemon in your Pokebox
  • Removed legendaries from pokebox defender rankings
  • Fixed some bad url issues
  • Tweak the server lag calculations. Overall shift is around 1% and depends on the fight
  • Added energy to the combat log for those who are interested in such things

For those curious, server lag has been in Pokebattler since December. It is required to match the frame by frame video analysis. It averages out to 25ms for fast attacks and 100ms for special attacks. These numbers need significantly more data points to be completely accurate and definitely make a difference on close fights like Aggron. It is possible and in fact likely that the special attack lag is determined by your internet speed. Wifi attempts would definitely have lower lag

Version 4.1.10

January 29, 2018

New functionality today with the help of Wasabigeek

  • Bulk Delete created to replace Delete All. It should be much faster to cleanup your pokebox now
  • Some performance improvements for large Pokebox
  • Support for Portuguese language thanks to JCB
  • Various bug fixes

Version 4.1.9

January 24, 2018

A small ui patch

  • Fix hidden power pokemon in raids like Porygon

Version 4.1.8

January 23, 2018

A small release tonight to add some pokemons and a new raid

  • Aggron has been added to the raid pages
  • Updated some caching code so people should see new releases faster
  • Added Lunaton and Solrock to raid results. Mini Golems
  • Pikachu can throw presents while he surfs

As many people know, new raids can always be found in the custom raid section by selecting Tier ? and picking the appropriate tier and Pokemon. You dont have to wait for a new release!

Version 4.1.7

January 23, 2018

The big news today is the next batch of gen 3 has been released! I have made some guesses as to what is being released and pushed out a new version. I also added some more analytic options for logged in users.

  • Next gen 3 batch released. New results may take some time to generate. Servers have been doubled just in case
  • Ability to select results by percentile on raid and advice pages for logged in users
  • Legacy simulation types removed. Monte Carlo is much better
  • Fixed drop downs on pokedex page

The higher the number of sims, the more options you get. No point seeing a 99th percentile if you only have 10 results. Seeing the range of results is interesting to me, hopefully it is interesting to you as well. More to come if people like it

Version 4.1.6

January 19, 2018

More changes today to support higher Patreon benefits and to announce a new contest.

  • Fanatic members now have far more simulation options including Monte Carlo - Platinum with 500 sims each
  • Kyogre has left the building
  • We are announcing Rayquaza Duo Contest

Monte Carlo Platinum will be very useful for allowing accurate percentile results. This way you can choose to 'get lucky' or 'get unlucky' and see how the results change. I expect Leaf Blade to be better in the unlucky case while Solar Beam to be better in the lucky case for example

Version 4.1.5

January 16, 2018

A big milestone was reached. Patreon subscriptionshit $1,500! This release is mostly to support the new rewards.

  • $10 Patreon level Patreons (redundant I know) are now ad free!
  • A new delete all button has been added with the help of Wasabigeek!
  • Raid advice video tutorial added thanks to my lovely wife
  • Tons of translations from many different people, thanks everyone!

Ad free experience will expand to $4 Fan level when donations reach $2,000 and $1 level when donations reach $3,000. Thanks for all your support

Version 4.1.4

January 12, 2018

Another big update today. The big news of course is the Kyogre is out, but Pokebattler has some new features too

  • Kyogre has been added to available attackers
  • Major update and official release of the advice tool including a graph!
  • Many behind the scenes updates
  • Better support for saving Pokebattler to your phone
  • New notification of new releases for supporting browsers

Good luck on those Kyogre raids everyone!

Version 4.1.3

January 8, 2018

A couple more bug fixes for bugs I created with the last bug fixes

  • Removed Splash from legacy moves of some legendaries
  • Fixed issue with linking the estimator to the dropdown
