Discord is the chatting-software medium used to host the official out-of-game chat in Pokémon Revolution Online's network of services. It supplanted the IRC chat for the mantle of PRO's official external chat on April 23, 2017.
By concomitance of its officiality, it is prodigiously the most populous out-of-game chat available for PRO at this time, allowing you to communicate with staff members and fellow community members on a real-time basis.

As the most prominently interlinked out-of-game chatting hub used by PRO, it is accepted as PRO's official out-of-game chat; as such, it is used as the go-to player-support real-time chat outside of the game, as well as a popular hub for conversing with the rest of the community.
Its rules are codified similarly and thus the same guidelines and rulings should be expected here as you would expect from any other medium in PRO's network of services. The chat-specific rules will be delineated below, but do take as a rule of thumb that the rules model themselves after the same regulatory goals pursued by PRO's network of services; that means that you should not do any action that would be rule-breaking as it pertains to the game in this chat (scamming, for example).
As its an official part of PRO's network of services, do bear in mind that extremities of abuse herein could warrant actionable punishment for your in-game account if deemed necessary.
Joining the server
As a bimodal software, it is usable both via the website or its downloadable application-based software. If you have not already registered a Discord account, it is advisable to do so, beforehand, for identificatory privileges and global retention of all your servers and configurations; however, doing so, while beneficial, is not categorically required to join PRO's official server.
To join most seamlessly, you can click on this invitational link; you will be prompted to confirm your acceptance of the invitation, which will officially add you to the server. Alternatively, you can also input the hashed ID in TcAdcPx in the server-joining prompt (click on the plus-button circle) to join it.
Thereupon joining, it is advisable to read the ruleset (#server-rules, which is your initialized tab) before chatting.
Additionally, you are enjoined to classify yourself based on the server; this will colorize your name in accordance to the designated server, accentuating what in-game server you primarily play on. To assign yourself to a server, use the ?rank server-name Server command.
Do note that until you reach the level-7 threshold, accruable through the mee6 bot, certain privileges, such as hotlinking images, will be inaccessible. Experience points are granted by mee6 through posting messages, and your level-ups will be announced.
Channels and usage
To fully comport yourself with the ruleset, it is adjured to be conscious of using the compartmentally appropriate channels; doing so entails knowing all the available channels and their compartmentalistic purposes, which is mostly self-explanatory when viewing the available channels in addition to the pinned messages and topic-headers thereof but is also explained below.
There are currently 15 public textual channels and five voice-chat channels total, which are sectionalized as follows: Rules and Information, Events and Tournaments, Player zone , Trade, and Voice Chats.
Rules and Information
This subsumes all channels used to envelop information users are strongly advised to read, which contains #announcements, #server-rules, #pro-useful-links, #frequently-asked-questions, and #guilds.
These channels can only be posted in by staff members and the Discord Staff; as its namesake suggests, it exists strictly for readable information, and only information-posting is conveyed in there for the sake of chat-log mutability.
Events and Tournaments
This subsection, consists of only one active channel, contemporaneously- #Player-Hosted-Events; which is used as a medium to advertise unofficial tournaments and events hosted by players. Advertisement of one's event or tournament in the said channel can be done by contacting a Discord Moderator or Discord Leader. This channel is non-usable by non-staff members. ('Non-staff members' excludes the Discord staff)
All conversational activity is conducted in Player Zone's nodal section of channels, containing the server's central channel in #general.
While most chatting is done in #general, other channels exist to focalize more specific chat usages: #support, which is optimal to post in for eliciting support from staff and players, in addition to general informational needs; #pvp-showdown, for match-making PvP battles and for general advice and discussions within its purview; #bot-commands, which is where all commands (read the parental section below) should be performed; and #video-streams, where video streams and channels—typically gaming-oriented ones—can be acceptably advertised.
A showcase subsection also exists, subsuming #your-own-art, for showcasing artwork, and #mappping, for showcasing any customly architected maps.
All advertisements pertinent to trading and other commercial activity is restricted to these channels. It is compartmentalized into two server-respective channels, total. An additional channelization #daycare_shops, can be viewed in the "Trades" subsection. It servers the purpose of advertising daycare shops of players. This channel is also locked; only the staff members can post here. Requesting the Discord moderators, Discord leaders, to make an advertisement about one's shop should be done if players desire to advertise their daycare shops in said channel.
All rules within the purview of trading are to be conducted, here, when brokering for trades.
In addition to textually chatting, voice-chatting is also conductible; all channels for it are subsumed under this section. They will be accessibilized as soon as you attain level 7 on the Mee6 Discord not.
There are five voice-chat channels—including a staff-accessible one—and a textual channel entitled #voice-chat. All textual messages posted pertaining to the voice-chat topics and conversations should be posted in the #voice-chat channel, not #general.
