PC Battle Server Information & Help
Discuss, share feedback, and ask questions related to the battle server.

General Information
• The PC Battle Server can be accessed via this link.
Pokémon Showdown is currently supported as the battle simulator.

• Submit "/commands" in the chat for help.
The battle server will then provide you a list of commands for changing your username, avatar, and so on.

• The Battle Server Room Requests & Guidelines thread is for room information.
However, you may use this thread for discussing and providing feedback on rooms.

• The PC Battle Server Alts thread is for finding out who everyone is on the forums.

This GitHub repository contains majority of the battle server's code.
Feel free to contribute.

The rules are up to a staff member's interpretation. If you disagree with how a staff member has enforced these rules or if they abused their power in any way, contact a senior staff member via private message. Please talk with the staff member in question first in the case of personal issues.

The PokéCommunity Rules apply to the battle server.
However, there are exceptions. Mild profane and inappropriate content are allowed in moderation.
◦ Sexually explicit and extremely violent or vulgar content is not allowed. Inappropriate topics must be kept at a minimum, and may never be the main subject of discussion if explicit.

• Avoid submitting messages that don't contribute to the chat.
This includes, but is not limited to, unnecessarily repeating the same message or breaking up a message into multiple lines to an excessive degree, using broadcast commands such as "!data" that are unrelated to the current topic (use a "/" instead of "!"), and threatening to enforce disciplinary action if not staff.

• Official chat rooms are English only.
Other languages are allowed in battle rooms, private messages, and unofficial chat rooms.

Submit "/staff" in the chat to see our other usernames.

• ~ Administrators
Admins are split up into two groups: HQ staff and senior staff. Some staff are part of both groups.
◦ HQ staff
Manage PC, and as a result, oversee the management of its battle server.

◦ Senior staff
Hold the same responsibilities as mods, as well as manage the battle server by making final decisions on various matters (e.g. promotions), performing maintenance, etc.
Please contact one of the following members via private message for ban appeals.

• @ Moderators
Moderate the battle server and provide feedback on staff decisions.

Custom Avatars
Custom avatars can no longer be requested. Instead, they are given out as prizes for winning tournaments. Use "/shop" for more information.

Bot Guide
• Commands
/invite - Invites the bot to the specified room. No longer requires the user to have global authority.
.about - Displays the creators of the bot.
.set <bot command or mod opt>, off OR disable / <rank symbol> / on OR enable (aka .settings) - Changes the bot's settings. Bot commands include say, joke, choose, usagestats, helix, and banword, while mod opts include flooding, stretching, and bannedwords. For example, ".bot flooding, off" would disable flood moderation in the room. Another example: ".bot joke, @" would allow only users with @ and up to use .joke in the room.
.banword (aka .banphrase, undo with .unbanword or .unbanphrase) - Bans a phrase in the room. .viewbannedwords (aka .viewbannedphrases or .vbw) displays what phrases are banned in the room.
.say (aka .tell) - Makes the bot say the specified message.
.joke - Displays a joke (usually a Chuck Norris joke).
.choose <option 1>, <option 2>, and so on - The bot randomly chooses between the specified options.
