    Default Pokemon Online Server

    Due to the general interest in this and the fact that the staff has already been working on this this has been moved to development

    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)

    Quote:
    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?
    So, anyone able to host the server? before you commit to it, think about whether you can leave a computer on 24/7, whether your bandwith can take it, and whether or not your parents (if you live with them) are fine with it?

    Also, please check out their site for information in regards to a server.

    How much is the bandwidth required?

    immwenity offered to host it

    Also, I think we should take a poll for what metas we should include in it. 4th and 5th gen OU are givens, but I think we should ask people what else they want (LC, doubles, triples, challenge cup, etc)

    Before posting in Battle Strategies, please read the rules and simple questions stickies!

    Still rating competitive teams via VM/PM, as well as accepting questions or discussion about battle strategies.

    Hm, really? I was under the impression it all had to be scripted. I know the ladders have to be scripted, so I guess it'll just be a question of what ladders people want.

    everything should be done in order. That step can occur after we find someone to host it.

    There's no alternative whatsoever? Surely a computer can't be left running 24/7 forever. Sooner or later issues will come up and it'll have to shut down, be it overheating, updates, etc.

    elaborate on what you mean. some down time is of course expected, but the server should be up as much as possible.

    Well, let's say the computer shuts down for some reason. For example, a power outage. Will it be possible to retrieve the server, or would we have to create a new one?

    The server can be started up again just by booting the computer back up and launching the PO software.

    Most servers (and your basic home desktop) won't have too much trouble achieving 99.5%+ uptime as long as they're in a reasonable environment (not a ton of dust, cool, not humid.)

    So, here's the thing. My laptop can probably take it, since I think it can run on VMWare Fusion for a Mac (if I'm wrong let me know). Should I try setting something up on VmWare and see if it works?

    In regards to the tiers, I strongly suggest we do something on this accord:

    -Gen 4:
    LC
    OU
    UU
    NU
    Ubers


    -Gen 5:
    LC
    OU
    Ubers
    UU
    Dreamworld OU
    Dreamworld Ubers

    Side Metagames [Gen 5]:
    1v1
    Any other Metagame we feel we want to experiment.




    Atleast to begin with
