In-Game Chat rules.


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator



Regarding some of the rules listed, you will first be warned for the behavior in question, rather than punished immediately.

However, disregarding warnings and repeating the offense will lead to harsher actions being taken.

Not following our rules can and will be punished accordingly, based on our Punishment Policy.

If you are constantly breaking the rules, you may be punished further.






1. Deplorable behavior such as foul language, profanity, harassment, and excessive toxicity is not allowed.

  • Behavior such as this will not be tolerated, whether filtered or not. Similarly, avoiding the profanity filter will also lead to punishment.
  • Chat toxicity and excessively posting complaints with the purpose of disturbing the general community will not be tolerated and lead to punishment.

2. English Only in All Official Chats, excluding Other Chat

  • In all official In-Game Chats, besides the Other Chat, you are only permitted to speak in English. However, feel free to make your own chat channel for speaking a non-English language.  Custom chats won't be moderated, but the Rules still apply in those channels. Any violation reported to us will be punished.

3. No Discussion of Infractions, Reports, or Applications

  • Do not discuss sanctions in any of the official chat channels, do so in the proper section of the forums: Discipline Appeals.
  • Do not discuss report-related topics in the chat. If you see someone violating the rules, make sure to report that player.
  • Do not discuss staff applications in the chat. This will reflect negatively on your application.

4. Links and Advertisement

  • You can only post in-game links of the official PRO website and forum (example: dashboard, guides, support threads, etc). Live streams links are allowed in 'All' every 30 minutes.
  • Advertising your personal channels, other Pokemon games* and services not related to PRO is strictly prohibited.
    • This does not include Game Freak and Nintendo games
  • Do not advertise private chat channels in any of our official chats*, with the exception of language channels.
    • If you are advertising a private chat channel to avoid moderation we may join the channel and moderate it

5. Avoid sensitive topics (Religion, Politics, Diseases & similar subjects)

  • Be careful when talking about delicate subjects such as religion, politics, or diseases. Remember, you are not alone in the chat.

6. No Spamming

  • Spam in all forms is prohibited. Spam includes but is not limited to:
    • Excessive Letters, Symbols, Emojis, and Numbers
    • Sending multiple of the same message right after one another
    • Cutting up sentences into multiple messages when they can be placed in one sentence
    • Any unnecessary advertisement/spam to draw attention to your trade post

7. No Mini-Modding.

  • Do not Mini-Mod in any of our chats, we encourage you to report any violations in our Report Center. You are allowed to tell a user kindly to stop rule-breaking behavior.

8. Rating and Pokemon builds.

  • Pokemon rates and/or build questions can be asked All Chat, Help Chat & Battle Chat.

9. Price checks.

  • Price checks can be asked in All Chat, Help Chat & Battle Chat.
  • Alternatively, you may use our Gold and Silver Price Checking and Rates Sub-forums.

These chats may not be moderated, but this doesn't mean that you can go against our Punishment Policy.

For example, harassing other players in these channels is still against the rules. Evidence from those chats will still apply to reports.
