So the rumour is true that both Instacheck and Battle Analyzer was created by Smogon's members? Evil indeed :)
Lysandre (creator of Smogon) encouraged his Team Flare members to spread the word of Instacheck while the admins worked on Showdown. Meanwhile, Xerosic captured Masuda to give him the games source code (in collaboration with Smealum) to develope the battle analyser. The gear Lysandre wears in that battle is a portable version of the analyser for Smogon members to use at VGCs.
