Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

I don't know if this is the right place... but I'd like to know if there's any way of predicting a nature of a Pokémon transferred from Virtual Console. I've read that its nature will be the nature with the index number that corresponds to the Pokémon's total experience in Generation I modulo 25. But how do I know the index number for each nature?

The Orange Island- or Wi-Fi Simple Questions threads would be a good place to ask questions like that.

But to answer your question: here's a table of experience that pretty much explains how to get each nature:
 
how long do bans last? and do they ban your ip or your whole account? aside from the requirements do you have to be a good user to get a badge? why are some peoples badges gray? why do some people lose trophies and (in NJNP's case) not even make it on the hall of fame?

I won't be able to answer all your queries but these might answer some of your questions.


For Smogon, i'd give these a look: http://www.smogon.com/warnings
(bans in PS are ip-based, and ban evasion is punishable)
For Pokemon Showdown, there's roombans which last for 2 days, blacklist which bans you for a year, and global ban which well, bans you from the site entirely.

Greyed out badges are called alumnus badges, where a person who has made significant contributions to the site has stopped contributing, these badges are rewarded to them to show appreciation for their previous works.

Besides permanent bans, they only last until you drop below 4 points again. The infraction / point system is linked above.

Smogon bans by accounts, although IPs may be checked for alt creation.

Yes, you need to be in good community standing to get a badge. We're usually pretty forgiving to folks that turn over a new leaf, though~

Gray badges are alums, basically former major contributors to an area. Some badges, like Contributor and Artist, are always grayed out when a user stops contributing in that way, while others, like Community Contributor and Team Rater, need to be maintained for a while before qualifying for alum status.

Trophies are generally only stripped when they were earned through cheating. That doesn't necessarily mean everyone that's been stripped of a trophy is a cheater, though; in SPL8, all of the Tigers were stripped of their trophies after one of their players was found cheating. Stripped trophies are not included in the hall of fame because they're not meant to be recognized achievements.
