    I've downloaded the PO application. When I try to connect to the Pokemon Online battle server I'm asked to enter a password. I do so and I recieve the message "Error while connected to server -- Received error n°1: The remote host closed the connection." Does this mean the server is down?

    I'm also not entirely sure if I did the password think correctly. Was I just supposed to make one up or was I supposed to register somewhere?

    If you get that before registering the name you are using it means someone else has registered it. You will have to choose another name.

    OK, so I downloaded it, and made my teams and everything, but when i try to do anything (find battles, chat, etc.) it does nothing. However, I can still read what other people are saying. I might just uninstall and reinstall it, or use my better desktop instead of this retarded laptop.

    Hey there. =)
    It's my first time connecting to the Smogon server on Pokemon online, though everytime it comes up with this error:

    "Error while connected to server - received error nº5: Connection timed out"

    Now, I'm at a bit of a loss since I've added Pokemon Online to my firewall exceptions, I've reinstalled, and I can even join other servers, just not this one. also, google searches don't come up with anything useful.

    Does anyone by any chance know how I can fix this? =) Thanks for your patience in helping out a noob.

    This started happening a really long time ago, but i have been too lazy to do anything about it. The problem is this: i try to go onto the server, but i disconnect. Then when i try again, it says i'm permanently banned. I have no idea how this happened, as i have always followed the rules/ tried my best to follow the rules. One thing that is noteworthy is that i got a new router semi recently, so i think that i may have gotten a new ip address that is already banned. I really have no idea. I would really appreciate if i could get unbanned from the server, and i wouldn't do anything against the rules if unbanned.

    EDIT: if this is not the right place to post this, sorry, and it would be nice if someone told me where to post this

    It would help if you told us what account you were on when this happened.

    The account "1001100110" is banned and has the same IP as yours. I've unbanned it. Please do not do anything to get banned in the future.

    Upload the picture using www.tinypic.com

    I have also checked all the alts connected to 1001100110 and none of them are banned. If you can think of any other alts you may have used in the past, please PM me.
