What if I don't use IRC?
There isn't really a signup thing for irc, it's just type a username and you're set, so it's pretty easy.
Alternatively, you can PM any mentor or moderator on Smogon that has expertise in your area of interest. The list of mentors can be found here.
Ok so here's the basic problem I have(And for the record I have no idea if this is the right place to post this), see I'm entering my first online competition, and I have spent hours making pokemon I thought fit into the requirements of the comp, (These requirements are listed below, under my team information) and apparently I have pokemon that are in some way, not legal.

The Competition site lists the requirments for a pokemon to be eligable are as follows:
Players may use only Pokémon found in the Kalos Pokédexes of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y.
Exceptions: You cannot use Pokémon that were brought to Pokémon X or Pokémon Y using the Nintendo 3DS downloadable software Poké Transporter.
The following Pokémon cannot be used in this competition: Mewtwo, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zygarde
A player's team may not contain two Pokémon with the same National Pokédex number.
Pokémon may use only moves learned by one of these methods:
By leveling up
By TM or HM
As an Egg Move, through breeding
From a character in the game
Already known by a Pokémon received at an official
I have, double, triple and quadruple checked that the pokemon listed are legal, I am fairly sure the items are and I know there is no hacking or questionable origins on them.... so, what have I missed?Help?
Thanks in advance and the like,
Are all of the Pokemon Kalos Born?
Yes, I bred them individually myself to ensure max IV's and the natures egg moves etc, etc
The only possibility I could think of is Ice punch.
No Kalos dex pokemon learns Ice punch by level up, so transfers where used to breed them onto these pokemon.
In saying that I subbed out vile and vire for frostlass and greninja and my registration still came up with a notice saying one or more pokemon are illegal.
Electivire is not in the Kalos dex... That's the biggest issue with the team. Ice Punch is legal from Medicham, so no problems there. But the entire Pokemon is not legal from the rules you have laid out.
I have already searched the "Eligible pokemon" section of the official site and can verify that it is listed there. It seems they are including friend safari availability in the "Kalos dex" and the FAQ states "Kalos dex" refers to all directly available pokemon in X and Y.
So I believe Electrivire IS available :(
Edit:Also, after test subbing him out for greninja (which is assumabley from kalos.... being a starter and all XD) the situation remained unchanged x.x
Conclusion: I was wrong, even though they are listed as eligible on the official site, they are not.
Electivire is not found in Kalos, other then the Friend Safari, which doesnt count as "found in Kalos"
Is Billy Phillips my display name and is there a way I could change that?
You would need to contact a super moderator or administrator to change your username. A list of those can be found here.
Yeah, it looks like you mixed up Real Name and User Name, so I flipped those for you. Welcome to Smogon, btw~
Is there a specific place I should go to find out which pokemon counter which? I don't want to start another unnecessary thread.
You can read the Pokemon's analysis. There should be a section that says "Checks and Counters."
It's about a gen 6 pokemon
Like Redew said, you can check the analysis of the pokemon you want to find. Here's the Gen 6 OU Analysis Forum, Find the pokemon you want to see and go under "Checks and Counters"
Oh, in that case, this forum should have the list of Gen 6 Pokemon. They're not all done, so if there's a Pokemon you want to see that's not finished, just wait until it is.
How do you PM someone?
You can either go under your pm, and click "start a conversation" or click on someone you want to pm and "start a conversation"
Does anyone have a link to a post formatting guide? I'm . . . inexperienced.
Welcome to Smogon! You might want to check this out.
omigosh thank you
Is there a way of stealing someone else's name on Pokemon Showdown? I want the name "Air" and I assume that the owner of the name isn't active anymore. If a mod could change the password or something if it's not active that would be great
http://pokemonshowdown.com/users/Air <~ I want that, no ladder matches either
You posted this on the Pokemon Showdown forum as well...once again, no.
Usernames can only be reset by administrators in exceptional circumstances. It's a pain to do, so different admins do it for different reasons.
When will the site be updated? I asked this question earlier, but nothing has changed in the last 2 months.
