    Default Pokémon Online Server

    Considering that we have a fairly large communtiy of battlers, coolking and me were talking, this time around we may have a better chance of getting a PO sever set up considering that we will have more users using it.
    Quoting an earlier thread with a change (shoddy to PO)

    I (and I'm sure other members) like to use PO both for testing out teams, and for getting quick battles within sets of rules (you can't play only UU on Wi-Fi, for example). I think it would be even better if we could play against people we know, and get to meet others, on these forums, instead of playing against people you have little chance of knowing on Smogon.
    I don't know much about Shoddy servers, but if one can be run from two different places at the same time, we could even have it run by users, instead of taking up bandwidth on the Bulbagarden server. If it was run by volunteer users, they would get the perk of the server always being up when they want to use it, and everyone else would generally get more server space if more people are using it, because of the proportional number of people on running the server.
    So, should Bulbagarden get a PO server.
    So can't we use some BMGf money to run a server?65

    Eh, I don't like this idea... sounds like more work and server space than necessary. DOWN

    I vote UP if we can find someone who can run the server and knows how to work it.

    I'm not sure how many non-competitive battlers appreciate this, but playing against quality opponents is tough on PO's ladder and Smogon's doesn't have enough people. Not only does this let us meet other forumers, it also lets us battle against good competition and test teams. It also adds a new element to the IPGL.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    Badal, I would remove the part about BMGf money....it doesn't cost any money to run it as long as we have someone who will always have their computer on to run the server.

    You do realize this is not being hosted by the same servers that host the Bulbagarden site?

    Anyways, voting up

    It's a splendid idea, imo. Battling random opponents gets beyond tiresome so I'm voting UP

    This sounds as if it would make it easier to get involved with the battling community at BMGf.

    I wholeheartedly support the idea of an official Bulbagarden PO server hosted by volunteers. We can easily use this to further develop our battling community and reach out to members of our userbase who would otherwise have little interest in competitive battling.

    The reason I talked about the money was because if we can't get anyone to host on BMGf for free, we could pay server hosting companies to do it (?)

    UP but they were already planning to do this, they've been planning to since the Tournament, it's not a new idea.

    Much love to Zurr

    Staff has been working on getting a server for almost a year. The main problem is finding someone who can actually host the server (no staff member can leave their computer on 24/7, I already checked) but if someone can do it, I vote Up

    PO doesn't use a lot of bandwidth. I don't see the big deal.

    Also, you don't need to be competitive to battle on simulators (if that's what you mean by "battling community").
