This repository is not "batteries included". It does NOT include instructions to run a full Pokémon Showdown client, and we will not provide them. Please do not ask for help on this; you will be turned away.
It also doesn't include several resource files (namely, the
/sprites/ directories) for size reasons.
In other words, this repository is incomplete and NOT intended for people who wish to serve their own Pokémon Showdown client (you can, but it'll require you figure it out yourself). Rather, it's intended for people who wish to contribute and submit pull requests to Pokémon Showdown's client.
Pokémon Showdown's client is distributed under the terms of the AGPLv3.
