I want to ask a question about ditto, but it's a little open, is there a forum or discussion type section on this site? if so, how do I get to it?
You will need to ask this question on the meta site.
Well there is no forum, only a place to ask questions(Q&A) and a place to ask about this site(meta) although there is a chat room to talk about anything.
As Pakey said, this should be asked on the Meta, but this site does have a forum that the members use:
How to change your username
How to add a user avatar
Why was my post hidden?
The points system
Flags vs Downvotes
PokemonDb Showdown server
Name Origins corrections
Location guide corrections
Type a Pokemon name, type, move or ability to see instant results.
