  2. Hi there, Guest!

    We have been having issues with server connections lately, and you may have been disconnected immediately after trying to join the server.
    If you try and rejoin the server a second time, this should resolve your problems. If this does not, only then should you post about the matter.

    If you are using the webclient, a prompt will likely appear, stating the following:
    "Could not connect to the server. It could be offline, the address could be invalid, or you might have trouble connecting. You will be taken back to the list of servers."
    Click "OK" when that prompt appears to be taken to the server list. If you then try to reconnect to the main server, it should allow you to connect.

    If you think you have banned, due to not being able to connect after the second attempt, then please post an appeal in the Disciplinary Committee subforum. A link to the forum can be found here.

    If none of this helped to resolve your issues, please follow the troubleshooting image here.

    THIS GUIDE WAS ORIGINALLY MADE BY USER MEMO

    Hello! These days I have found some players asking for "How to play" and we already have guides for Android and Windows (PC) but I think that we need a webclient guide! Because maybe it's the same idea but it is not the same way to play either Android, PC or webclient. So, let's start!

    ¿Te perdiste? Quizás buscas la guía que está disponible en español! Haz click aquí para verla.

    Getting Started!

    Ok, first I want to say Welcome to Pokémon Online! We're glad to have you with us.
    PO is a Pokémon Battle Simulator. Here you'll find a friendly international community, you can have as many battles as you want, whenever you want and from wherever you want. Because Webclient has some advantages over other clients in PO. With webclient you only need to have a Internet connection to get inside. On Android, Windows, MAC, Linux, iOS and whatever other device with an Internet Browser. If you want to try other Pokémon Online Versions you can visit our Download page. Yeah, it's true, With a downloaded version you could have more features than with Webclient. There's a client for any kind of user.

    Have in mind though that currently Webclient is unfinished and under developing, so certain elements might not be available or can malfunction.

    So, if you didn't realize how to get inside the PO webclient yet. You must to click the big "Play now" button on our Home Page.
    [​IMG]
    Connect!:
    In your first logging in PO you'll need to choose a username to use. You can register that username and create your own history (Password, Tournaments points, Safari logs, etc) as an user inside PO. Or you can visit our server as a "Guest" (These usernames cannot have passwords, logs, etc inside PO). If the nickname you chosed has been taken, it will request you a password, then you need to choose another username clicking "Not you?". Don't worry, just think in another name.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Main buttons:
    [​IMG]
    Find battle:
    With this button you'll search automatically a battle in the tier where you were placed. Tiers are basically groups in which Pokémon are divided depending on their usage, the most common ones are ORAS OU and ORAS Ubers but if you're tired of facing the same Pokémon over and over you can try lower tiers as well. Click here for an updated list of our tiers!

    I.E I clicked the find battle button and I got a Battle Factory 6v6 match instantly, but the waiting time may vary depending on the hour and the amount of players online.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Note: If for some reason your battle gets stuck or you cant battle at all, you can switch to the simple battle window and disable the battle audio for faster loading and less possible bugs.

    Help:
    Well...this button is what probably dragged you here in the first place.

    Teambuilder:
    Maybe the most important button on this bar. With this, you can make your own team of 6 Pokémon to start battles together the Pokémon you like. I will teach you how to make a team in next step.

    Servers:
    This button will show you the list of servers on PO. Servers are different places for any kind of player. You can choose your favorite due to language, mini-games or some features they have.
    [​IMG]
    Teambuilder:
    Here's the place where you can build your own team. So just follow the next screenshots to find out how to make your team. You need to choose a name for your team. Select the Poke #Number to select any Pokémon you want in your team (Following the tiers rules that I already showed you before). You can make your Pokémon hold items, modify their EVs (Effort Values), IVs (Individual Values) and much more! Also you can export your team for another user or import from other user to use their team. Enjoy battling!

    [​IMG]
    Note that next to "Team Tier" is what determines in which Generation your team will fall into, if by accident you end up in another gen, try to fix it from there.

    [​IMG]

    Inside this button you can personalize who you are for PO. You can change your username. Your avatar, colour, and trainer info ( info about you or whatever message you want to show for PO community) It's not difficult to understand just type stuff then select Update to save changes. But if you really want to make a good TI (Trainer information) click here to get more info.

    [​IMG]
    Player list:
    [​IMG]
    Now you must know about the player list. It's where all usernames are. You can select them and a window should show their trainer information and buttons to challenge them.
    What are clauses? Clauses are basically restrictions or particular rules which will be applied to the battle, here is what each of them does:
    Sleep Clause*: No more than one Pokémon on each team can be put to sleep at the same time.

    Freeze Clause: No more than one Pokémon on each team may be frozen at the same time.

    Disallow Spectators: Prevents other players from spectating the battle.

    Item Clause: There cannot be two or more Pokémon in each team holding the same item.

    Challenge Cup: Players will be given a team consisting of random Pokémon with random moves, items and stats.

    No Timeout: There will be no timer in the battle, meaning players will be free to take as much time as they want.

    Species Clause*: No more than one Pokémon with the same Pokédex number may be put on the same team.

    Team Preview*: Players are allowed to see each other's team before the battle starts.

    Self-KO Clause*: If both player's last Pokémon faint in the same turn, the battle will not end in a tie but the winner will be decided depending on how the Pokémon fainted.

    Inverted Battle: Type effectiveness is reversed, meaning Fire will be super effective against Water and weak to Grass and so on. Click here to see the full type chart for Inverted Battle.

    Clauses with an asterisk are enforced in Ladder Battles, if you don't want these enabled, you have to use manual challenges.
    Want to challenge a certain user? Select its user name, select the clauses for the battle then press the challenge button.

    [​IMG]
    But if you do right click you will get a little menu.

    Player info: Well I already explained this :v
    Private Message: It's the space where you can have some private conversation with any user.
    Ignore: If enabled, you will ignore all Private messages from a user you consider as annoying or you aren't really interested on what are they saying.

    [​IMG]
    Gear button (Settings)
    [​IMG]
    It will show you a options menu. Features that you can use on Webclient.

    Idle: With this, you can reject any challenge from other users. Your pokéball icon will show gray which means you don't want to battle or that you are unavailable at the moment.

    Timestamps: Shows at what time the message was sent.

    Sort by auth: Re-orders the player list by authority level. First owners, then admins, mods and users. It's useful to find out the authority faster.

    Colored player list: Everyone can use a certain color to identify themselves in chat. So, with this feature if enabled you can watch those colors in the player list. If disabled then you'll watch them all in black. (Rip)

    Simple battle window: There are 2 ways to display battles on Webclient, the basic one that appears if this feature is disabled and a "improved view" if enabled.

    Simple battle audio: If checked you will be available to listen the PO background music for battles. If not, no music will play in battles.

    Show exit warning: If checked your browser will request you a confirmation to exit from PO. If disabled, it doesn't appear.

    Download data: Don't want to lose all your changes done in your profile? Teams? And more stuff. If you click this button it will show you a block of text then you have to copy and paste that text on Notepad, save the text as a .json file.

    Load from data: If you want to move those changes done in your profile, then upload it, select your .json file that you saved before and there you go! All changes saved.

    Register: You must register your username so you can secure your account, be able to join Tournaments and other features that are only available when your name is registered.

    Search bar:
    With this feature you can easily find out some users and channels. Just type their name to find them.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Server Games (Also Known as Side Channels)
    These are our official channels for various purposes. They're #Hangman, #Tournaments, #Safari, #Trivia & #Mafia. They're like mini-games inside the same PO where you could find more fun! Also they works for those bored moments while you're chatting with users from around the world.

    Useful extra information:
    Maybe you also need to know about these interesting topics.

    Information Regarding Hackmons
    Frequently Asked Questions
    Guide To Personalising Your Trainer Info
    A Simple Guide that Explains Tiers

    The end:
    So, well I did my best for this guide so I hope this will help you to understand what and how is PO basically. If you have a question, suggestion or comment feel free to use this box comments. Thank you!

    What's your alt? You could try clearing the login session from the browser by clearing the browsing history n such. Or a mod can kick it out in case the alt got stuck.

    Made some spelling corrections and reduced the Pics size for faster loading. If required, I can lower the size of the pictures again.

    Well if you're trying to access from browser, it should be by clicking the "Play Now" button, it should take you to the Webclient page and well everything else is explained on the guide.

    If you can't log in at all then we'd have to check if by accident you fell into a banned IP or something, otherwise try to download the windows version to log in.

    Post your issue here, an admin may check if you are banned or if you accidentally fell into a banned IP.
    Your client is not that outdated, that's an aside issue.

    Hi,the webpage is just awesome i enjoy it, fast and easy. But i have i comment for you: can you build a webpage the suit for phone users? idk how difficult it might be (i build webs by using website builders), but if we can build a page like the this it makes battling easier and will arract more people to play po rather than ps

    As far as I know:
    (19:20:09) ~Midnight Lycanroc: that function is not available in web version, demososo
    (19:20:25) ~Midnight Lycanroc: Although it's possible from the android app and windows client.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
    Respective guides on both Android and Windows here explain how. Give them a check.

    Confirming that shiny Pokémon have not yet been implemented on the Webclient. They show up in the team builder, but they won't be shiny in battle.

    Just something to edit and update the guide with, perhaps not having the first picture have "We were hacked" as its header would be nice.
