Just thought I'd let everyone know in case they have been trying to access Pokemon Showdown for the past couple of hours (since about 3pm EST), that it is down, and not for maintenance. The hosting company that Showdown runs on (CloudFlare) is having power issues. CloudFlare is what keeps the server online when it is down, which is indeed is. It's not really CF that's having the issue, it's DreamHost that is having it. The VPS is located in Irvine, California , which is the western part of the US. There have been updates which can be read here:

If needed you can also check out the #showdown irc for more and to talk about the outage: Showdown IRC
