Smogon is hacked.

nintendo doesn't know showdown exists it's not exactly on the first page.
And either way showdown uses nintendo's copy righted matrial without their WRITTEN consent.

that's all kinds of illegal. if nintendo knew showdown existed they'd shut it down.

They deserve it. Most of the mods there are elitists and are way too strict more so than any other website i've ever been to.


So hacking into their website and ruining it is justified? No.


This. While I do agree that Smogon is often full of elitist, the only website that deserve being hacked and taken down are hateful (racist, sexist) and illegal (Terrorism and child pron) websites.

And smogon actually helps me for my in-game teams sometime...

Seriously whether people enjoy the site or not, its stupid to cheer it getting hacked. I hope the hacker is caught and charged to the fullest extent.


lol. Compared to when sony was hacked this isnt even slightly a big deal


I believed the same thing about that attack. I don't know how that is relevant at all.

Its like if someone was murdered and then you are like, oh but this group of people was all murdered too!

It doesn't detract from the crime just because the same thing was done on a larger scale.

I am pretty positive that it is not.

As a man who can unashamedly say Charizard is my favorite pokemon, I think this is terrible news and I'm confused as to why someone would even hack the site other than to prove they can.

Please don't lump Charizard fans in with this hacker.

It doesn't matter what I put in here, it's probably been done already

ive been modding smogon for maybe 4-5 months now, i can assure you it isnt elitist at all compared to what it used to be.

for anyone who wants to still use the tiers for wifi battling, just find whatever tier info you need here http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://www.smogon.com/bw/tiers/

click it, click the cached version, and go wild

Good. I hope it stays down.


This. It's about time Smoron users were put in their place


Put in their place for what?
Playing Pokemon?
What did they do to you that you have the audacity to say that?

I'm no Smogonite, but I do play competitively and the site does have good advice.


Put in their place for being the most inept elitists of all time. They destroy any sort of good they do with their horrible tiers and bannings. Its so ****ing stupid

Someone's mad.

You're acting like they assassinated your puppy with an AK-47 in front of you or something. Thing is, like many internet stuff, it's not even affecting you directly, so I don't even know. I understand that the Internet is forever and all, so I'm not really going to marvel at that fact that the negative energy towards Smogon here is tragic and unnecessary.
