    We finally have a beta Generation 7 client released for Windows and Android!

    Main features in changelog:
    • Generation 7 Pokémon added, including Alolan formes.
    • Generation 7 moves and mechanics added, including Z-moves.
    • Generation 7 items added, including Z-Crystals.
    • Updated some translations.
    • Unreleased 2.6.3 Windows features transferred over, including Open Teambuilder button, Music/Cries fix and Damage Calculator improvements.
    • Flashes should now work on Windows (again).
    • A multitude of other bug fixes, see the Github changelog for more details.

    Our Downloads page has been updated with the latest clients, but direct links can be found here:

    Windows:
    https://github.com/po-devs/pokemon-online/releases/download/2.7.0/Pokemon-Online-2.7.0-Setup.exe

    Android:
    https://github.com/po-devs/android-client/releases/download/2.7.0/PO-android-client-2.7.0.apk

    (Note: If the Android client update does not work, you may need to uninstall the previous version. You will lose all of your teams if you do this, however. We recommended loaded each team, coming onto the server, and using the /importable command to get a raw importable you can use after updating. However, you will need to do this with every team you wish to still have saved, and each importable only remains for 24 hours. We are not currently aware of a faster method of doing this, so if you know of one, please post as such in this thread. Sorry for any inconvenience.)

    (Note 2: If your Android phone is rooted, you can find your team files in the root folder root/android/data/ and then looking for a folder called "podevs" or "podevs-android-client" or something similar to that. You can then find the team .xml files there. You will need a PC to move and remove the files, but this will be quicker than repeatedly using the /importable command.)

    Currently, our released clients are only in Beta, so there will be a few bugs that require updating. Please report any bugs in the Bugs & Fixes subforum.

    We do not have an active Mac developer currently, so it may be a short while before a Mac client is released. Additionally, the Webclient beta will not be updated with Generation 7 mechanics for a while. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Copying the teams folder from the PO folder doesn't work?

    Oh wait duh, that's for android, although that could be clearer :D

    I know everything is still in beta and that a lot of things are still in the works, but i have a quick question:

    In our private servers we are experiencing a few bugs in the battles, specifically with some z moves that dont consume the crystal and can be used multiple times, however in the main server they work without problems, so my question is if the beta server is currently running with a custom/fixed version of the battleserver that wasnt included in this release or if those problems were solved with additional scripts?

    (I know that my question fits more in the bugs forum but i wanted to ask first if we had an unstable version of the battleserver or if we genuinely have a bug)

    Thanks

    The official server uses the current master branch on Github that includes all the fixes that have been done after the 2.7.0 release. You can either build your own client from the master branch or wait until we release a new client that includes the fixes made recently (should take about 2 or 3 days, we want to fix as many remaining bugs as possible before we release the new client)

    I've specified that it is for the Android client in both of the additional notes. This should help to clear things up.

    Yay for rushing to do things cos you've been gone for a while.

    Android 7.0 is not compatible with this version. It crashes when you save in the teambuilder.

    Is there any chance I can get the update beforehand? Only thing I can now play is challenge cup and that kinda sucks.

    If you're able to compile the client and make it yourself via Github, you should be able to do this, I believe. Instructions on how to do that can be found on Github or in the Development section. Alternatively, an updated release shouldn't be too far away.
