Hello everyone!

I know it has been a while, but I'm glad to say that we have finally implemented the feature everyone has been asking us for: a 3D website! We don't have all the kinks worked out quite yet, so we're launching a beta test today. You can enable or disable the 3D website by clicking "Toggle 3D" in the navbar at the top of the page.


Edit: April Fools!

To kick off the launch of the new Nintendo+, the events team has decided to host a Pokémon tournament! If you are interested, you can check the rules and regulations here.

Winners of this tournament will receive a perfect IV Japanese Ditto RNG'd by @Shii and cloned by @PrimordialMew24. The runner up will receive a hidden power Pokémon courtesy of @PrimordialMew24 or an EV training kit containing all 6 power items. Third place and beyond will receive a consolation prize consisting of a wide variety of 5IV starters with their hidden abilities.

Please note that you must adhere to the Smogon's rules and regulations of the meta which are included in the thread above.

If you do not have a team prepared/will not be ready by the beginning of the tournament, Wi-Fi users can transfer their teams to Pokémon Showdown and face you off there.

Good luck, and have fun everyone!
