    This version has a bunch of small fixes and features added that have been reported/suggested on the forums.

    New battle backgrounds have been added for the old battle window, alongside tooltip fixes and other helpful additions to the old battle window. Another addition to the battle window is a warning when you click the X before actually closing (Make sure Show Exit Warning is turned on first though), plus the ability to set your battle window to always be the top window.

    The exit warning has also been added to the main client itself, clicking the X, pressing Alt+F4, or Ctrl+W on the last tab, now brings up a warning asking if you're sure you want to exit (Again Show Exit Warning needs to be on, it is by default, but check anyway).

    When registering, you now have a password confirmation, to make sure you type it correctly, instead of having to get it reset if you type it incorrectly.

    The trainer info limit has been (somewhat) increased. The old limit of 300 is still there for plain text, but html tags don't count towards this limit, and instead count towards a HTML+Text limit of 500. The teambuilder now shows you how much you're using, although doesn't differentiate between plain text or html.

    Some of you may know that if you press TAB in the chat window, it cycles through the names of online players, now if you press CTRL+TAB it cycles backwards. A small addition, but a helpful one at least.

    For server owners, there is now a new setting called "Minimum Auth for HTML", what this allows you to do, is set an auth level that can use HTML freely in their messages. Although players need to be on an updated client to see it (and if they use client scripts, have scripts to accommodate this, my own scripts don't). There's a new client script function called client.getAuthHtml() which returns the current auth level allowed to use HTML on the current server (-1 is disabled)

    There's now also the frequently requested Hackmons Challenge Cup added. To play you need to be in a tier that supports hackmons (Hackmons, Balanced Hackmons, or the newly created Hackmons Challenge Cup tier). For server owners, just create a CC tier with the parameter "allowIllegal=true".

    This version should also have Hackmons Team not loading right fixed. I hope.

    Hi, I've had an issue with the teambuilder.

    When I search by base statistics, things don't behave the way they should
    >= does nothing
    = gives everything greater than the specified value
    <= gives everything equal to the specified value

    It's as if when the symbols displayed were updated the actual options weren't

    Is that Pokedex button in Team Builder actually going to be usable btw?

    The counter for TI is very nice feature.

    CTRL+Tab doesn't work on mine btw.

    Edit 1: The Designer Plugin isn't up to date with the updated TI thing just to note.

    It says that as a warning, same for mine on any of my devices.

    We are definitely not here to affect your computer, or implant all the nasty things that are scary within the internet.

    ps if it's Windows, then just click More Info then Continue/Proceed, etc

    That's exactly what happened, somehow. I had it changed but the commit doesn't include the lines. I've fixed it for next release. We have a couple of people doing translations for the sim, so 2.6.2 might come soon.

    Speaking of which, if anyone knows a language other than Spanish or Portuguese that PO supports, let me know. We need some translation help for the UI. Chinese only has like 20 strings still to translate, but the others have about 200-400 left. Japanese and Korean have just over 1000 though.

    I noticed the other night that the checkbox beside the ability search thing does nothing. Idk if that's something you were already aware of.

    Right, that would have been in the same file that didn't get committed. I'll address later.

    Registry is down, main server is down, log into PO Backup server until everything gets fixed.
    PO Backup Server - 94.23.36.227:5080

    EDIT: Registry should be up for everyone now (I think?)

    Try looking under My Computer(or whatever you named it) > C: > Users > (your pc username) > Pokemon Online

    there should be an .exe application there where you can launch PO. If you can find it, then you could manually create a shortcut to your desktop

    Try openning up Windows's Search and search for "Pokemon-Online.exe" with All Files setting. Should show a blue Poke Ball when it finds it.

    Don't worry. Pokemon Online is a non-virus app. I've been here over a year now. Just temporary disable the anti virus during the install or add an exception for the app for it if possible.
