It would be good to amend Output dialogue once Pokemon is frozen and note down that Intimidate was not effective on Pokemon that are immune to it. That would make things to look as if they are less broken. Kinda annoying sometimes.

I believe Jinji or whoever was messing up with the code commented MultiScale ability and put InnerFocues. Why such things arent announced?

Thanks for pointing this out Sabo, it appears an update to the Changelog I did last night did not save.

I have re-updated my Changelog to mention this; and add some other entries for which I wasn't allowed to add before the launch of our Halloween Event, due to spoilers.

So I see what you did there...Dragonite now can be caught with normal and hidden ability?

Right, I'm not keeping posts I believe are not entirely factually accurate; nor am I keeping responses I feel are of an incendiary nature. As I stated in my very first post, this Change Log is meant for my updates and serious discussion of said work ONLY. Take those matters elsewhere.

Back on topic - the answer to your question is no Sabo, at least not at this present time. Currently PWO's server and database structure does not support us giving Pokémon more than one ability. An agreement was made many years ago that the ability given to each Pokémon in PWO would be the first ability known to that Pokémon in official games as of the most recently agreed Generation, currently Generation 5; and as such Dragonite was updated to follow this standard. We are aware a number of other Pokémon are breaking this rule as well and it is my intention to update these over time as I work to implement missing abilities.

Now, it IS fully possible that with server enhancements; added data for each Pokémon in the DB; and perhaps a small amount of client-side support for making the decision on what encountered wild Pokémon will use as their ability (though a server-side solution likely exists here too and it may come down to which is more efficient), we can fully implement Pokémon having a choice of ability in future. This is not at the moment a priority, but will likely become one once the Ability code as a whole is in a much more stable position.

This would not be the first time I've had that suggested; and I do plan to look into entry hazards in the near future - unless another Admin or DEV beats me to it.

The duty of updating the Wiki does not, or should not, fall to Staff alone. By becoming a member of the Wiki, members of PWO's Community receive the right to both write and update Wiki content as well; and while there is no obligation to do so, even small occasional updates from each member when free time is available would be a huge help in keeping content up-to-date - plus, as all articles are readable without a Wiki account, there is little need for mere visitors to register to the Wiki; thus it behoves anyone who registers an account and is accepted to contribute at least once in a while.

This is not to say PWO Staff do not attempt to update the PWO Wiki ourselves - we will always attempt to update or remove outdated or inaccurate information when we have time available to do so - but for some of us, it is hard to find the time to work on articles in between our own duties to the game itself.

As I have noted time and time again, post the things that you find in the designated topic in general PWO and it can be fixed and updated.
It isn't the sole job for wiki editors to comb through and update things. Players need to help out in that respect too.

Two updates over the last 24 hours, one of which I'm told many of you expected would be the first Ability I'd work on - and indeed, I'd also wanted to work on it for some time.

Couldn't keep my fellow Ghosts hanging, keehehe...

Levitate is not working. Tested with Gengar and Rotom ..
Odd... I used these to test as well, along with Charizard (to ensure all Levitate/no Levitate combinations were tested); and they all worked properly. If this is still the case after the next server restart, can you screenshot or video for me both of the Pokémon in battle; the move used, and the proof it failed to be correctly handled?
