Title: IRC Chat Channel Moving To Discord
#PocketMonsters chat, which has been on IRC since 2002, is now going to be transitioning over to Discord. Discord is a free proprietary chat and VoIP application designed for gaming communities but it's available on Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux and in all modern web browsers. It has many advantages to the aging IRC system including offline chat logs, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, VoIP and website integration and much more that makes it superior to IRC.

We hope that using Discord will be a lot more user friendly and inviting for our community visitors.

Cool, I've been using Discord for another project as well. Guess you're about to see me there.

Yeah, so far so good. I particularly like the log being in the cloud so that it doesn't matter if you go offline, you can catch up on what's gone on. Multiclient support so no need for BNC's, to ghost nicks, ect. The advantages Discord over IRC has led us to this decision to transition. IRC hasn't really upgraded over the years.
