PSA: Pokémon Showdown was Hacked

Pokémon Showdown, the popular unofficial Pokémon battle simulator, was hacked yesterday. This is especially important for fans who have been using the very un-secure method of using the same password for multiple sites. Although the database stored passwords in an encrypted format, it doesn’t mean the hackers can’t crack them with a little elbow grease.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SHOWDOWN PASSWORD WAS UNIQUE. And then change it. Immediately.
