I believe there should be a chatbox on this forum because I would love to talk to random pokefans while playing pokemon :)

No. Just no. We have an IRC Chatroom already...just click here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/javachat.php)!

Good luck, have fun, and in the case that you don't fit in there...enjoy your permaban which will come soon!

I'm sorry, but chatboxes scream 2 dollar a month hosting services and a sucky admin who just wants ad revenue. IRC fits this place better, plus at times they're thousands of people online, in a small chatbox, that'll be complete hell and confusion.

We've had a thread just like this recently, if you want to hear what others have to say about it, you can check it over here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=233971&page=2). It'll be a lot for the database though and would cause a big lag for PC. Plus as kaiser32 stated, the IRC Chat is basically our chat for the site and another one wouldn't be needed.
