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

    Introduction
    Welcome to Pokémon Online! We're glad to have you with us.
    PO is a Pokémon Battle Simulator. We're a friendly international community.

    Keep in mind though that the Webclient is still being developed, so certain elements, such as Double battles, may not be available yet.

    To use the Webclient, click the big "Play now" button on our Home Page.
    [​IMG]

    Getting started
    Connecting
    You have two choices: you can enter as a guest with a default username that cannot be registered and has limited privileges, or you can set a username of your own and register it. If the nickname you chose is already taken, it will request a password, so you need to choose another username by clicking "Not you?".
    [​IMG]
    Main Buttons
    [​IMG]
    Find battle:
    Allows you to automatically search for a battle in the tier your team belongs to. If you have no teams, the server sends you to a tier that generates random teams to use. Click here for an updated list of our tiers.

    The waiting time may vary on the tier you play.
    [​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.

    Teambuilder:
    Here is where you can build your teams. Always make sure to click the "Update" button everytime you make a change on your team.

    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. Pokémon Online is the main server.
    [​IMG]

    Teambuilding Step by Step
    Step 1
    Here you can give a name to your team, lock or unlock the Hackmons function, assign the tier for your team, and more. To start building, just click on the respective Poke # buttons for each slot.

    [​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.
    -----
    Step 2:
    Here's where you can modify each Pokémon in the party separately, with many options such as moves, formes, EVs and IVs modification, etc.
    [​IMG]

    When you're done with your team, return to the Home button, make sure all your Pokémon have a full moveset and their EVs must also be set. Otherwise, it will be read as an invalid team. Click the Update button below to save the changes.
    [​IMG]

    Extras
    Mega Evolution
    Make sure to put the appropriate Mega Stone on your Pokémon in the teambuilder for this to work. If you did this correctly, the "Mega" button should show up on the battle screen.

    Z-Moves
    To use a Z-Move, you must first put the appropriate Z-Crystal on your Pokémon and fulfill the requirement each Crystal has set. Otherwise, it won't work. Currently the Battle window does not specify the Z-Move name on the move buttons, so you have to know the move information beforehand.
    [​IMG]

    Warning:
    Currently in this version the process cannot be canceled using the "Cancel" button. If you accidentally pressed the Z-Move button ONCE, or if you change your mind and no longer wish to use it in said turn after pressing it, you have to press any other move that doesn't match the Z-Crystal type. If you pressed it TWICE then you will be forced to use the Z-Move.

    Player Information
    Pencil button
    [​IMG]
    Here's where you can customize your trainer information and avatar. You can also change your username from here and then click on "Update" to use the new name.

    [​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.

    [​IMG]
    Clauses
    Clauses are basically restrictions or particular rules that are either enforced by the server (such as finding a battle automatically) or set by the user (when challenging).

    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 typically enforced in ladder battles.
    Other features in the Challenge Window
    Private Message: It's the space where you can have a private conversation with any user.
    Ignore: If enabled, you will ignore all private and public messages from a user.

    Misc. Features
    Settings
    [​IMG]
    Idle: Allows you to block challenges from users and can be used to tell others that you are unavailable or busy.
    Timestamps: Can be turned on or off to show or not show timestamps respectively.

    Sort by auth: Re-orders the player list by authority level. First owners, then admins, mods and users.

    Colored player list: Allows you to see the colors used by every player on their username.

    Simple battle window: There are two 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
    Allows you to find Players or Channels.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Joining Channels
    You can either create your own channels or join the current ones. Use the search bar to join existing ones or type /cjoin channelname if you already know the channel you want to join; this command also works to create your own channels.

    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.

    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.

    Yes, but to do so, you need to edit the importable directly. Open the teambuilder, click Importable, and for the Pokemon, put the nickname followed by the Pokemon's name in parenthesis, such as

    NickName (Venusaur) @ Venusaurite
    ...(rest of importable)...

    Then click import, then click update, and you should be good to go.

    Alternatively you can try with Windows Client, Android Client or MAC client that fully support nicknaming pokémon without complicated steps.

    I registered and now I can't battle properly! The SEARCHING... button never does anything, and even when it does, it acts like the battle's started, but I can't do anything! Also, my team appears on the opponent's side!

    Could you post a screenshot if it happens again? The webclient seems to be working fine to me, so it is difficult to identify the problem without more information.

    There's no specific way to reproduce this, it's something that happens randomly, both the battle window getting stuck and the Team/Name of one of the users getting duplicated/switched. It's been reported several times already and Coyo himself doesn't really know how to spot the problem.

    Nevermind, it works now. However, I would like to know what specific numbers produce what icons for the webclient avatar system.

    The list is a bit too large, you'd have to explore around the avatars until you find the one you like.

    Try closing the teambuilder box and re-opening it. It sounds like it didn't load properly for some reason.

    Go to the Teambuilder. The Teambuilding Step by Step section in the OP offers more details.

    Note that the server was undergoing maintenance today, and I can't connect via the webclient at the moment, so the webclient might still be down.
