nothing is up with it...but everything is down. ba dum tss
no seriously. the server is down, it has been down for quite a while (about a week now) and im sure Pokemaster, Nindzya and Scizornician (the admins) are working to fix it (it might be Showdown's fault, not theirs).
so no, your computer isnt stupid and yes there is somehting going on
