Where did you create the account?

Could you take a screenshot of what keeps popping up? I think it's just wanting you to pick what name you want to show up in the game itself.

i first created a account on pokemon.com so i could do the rated battles on my pokemon Y game. then i saw that i could start playing tcg online so i downloaded the game and logged in with my account info. it logs me in but then asked me to create a screen name. then it redirects me to pokemon.com to make up a screen name. so i went through the steps and made a screen name. i got back on the game tried to log in again and it has just continually asked me to make a screen name. i'm so damn confused.

i would post a screen shot but the forum won't let me since i'm a new member and i don't have enough points?

it seems the only way i can play is by going under the guest option but i don't wanna play like that anymore

Try uploading the screenshot as an attachment to your post.

I'm really curious on this now. I know you have to setup a screen name, but I think you only have to do it once (and I think you do it in the game client itself).

Are you clicking "Submit" at the bottom of the page to save the screen name setting on your profile? Go back to the spot on your profile and see if it actually saved your screen name. If not, enter one and make sure to click Submit at the bottom of the page and then try logging into the game client again.

Maybe. Maybe have a friend who doesn't have one set one up and see if their account works. If not, it might be a server side issue with new accounts.

I wonder if they're even aware of this problem.

I'll look at the official support forums of theirs later tonight and see if this is a known issue.

no i figured out what the problem was. i guess i never activated my account. you know the whole email thing and that's what was the problem. i kinda feel dumb for not noticing it before but i had thought i did that. plus the site never made me aware that my account was still inactivated.

Well, presuming the PC they use to play the TCGO is the PC they used to post here, then I wouldn't think it was the "Internet Settings".

Have you tried after today's big maintenance period? Sometimes it takes them a bit to add cards and codes.

The Screen name thing wasnt't a bug you had to login to pokemon.com, you got your account settings and got to Pokemon trading card game online settings, it will ask you for your screen name, anyways I'm too late, you fixed it. Also the message bug happened to me once.
