    I originally posted on Smogon, but they rarely use rental teams.

    As a Battlespot and VGC player, rental teams provide easy ways to test out teams that other people have provided. Probably the single best decision that Game Freak have made in Gen 7. However, what if you want to build the team itself? There might not be a blog post it explaining the sets. The next best thing is downloading it in-game, and manually calculating the right stats. They could use iffy IVs, for speed and such.

    This program aims to ease the process of converting a rental team into a Showdown paste format. It opens up the QR codes of rental teams, and gets all the team data.

    At the moment, it is very barebones. I want to try show the pictures of the Pokemon, but that will probably have to wait until most of the text glitches are fixed.

    You can access it from here:

    Any thoughts/Bugs, just put it here, or make an issue on the github. I'll be sure to answer

    Versions:

    • V1.0: The first release. Still some bugs, but I hope to get this perfected.
    Thoughts for future releases:

    • Fix some of the form issues.
    • Make sure Special QR codes are working
    Special QRs work though the decryption, but not yet through the HTTP Requests. ATM, I'm not updating it as its rarely used.

    • Fix EVs to be more user friendly. RN, I am straight pasting them to the output, and it would be interesting to smooth some of them out. Remove the odd extra 2 EVs here and there, and fix any off EVs.
    • Add other export actions. Looking at a straight-to Pokepaste option.
    Shoutouts:

    SciresM: For the QR decryption process. (See here: gist.github.com/SciresM/f3d20f8c77f5514f2d142c9760939266)

    Have you been updating this tool? I use it a lot, but there's some stuff that could be fixed :p.

    If you need any help with the project i'd be glad to help as well.
