I can remember my user name, but without the player ID I can't request a new password.
It won't allow me to set up a completely new account with the same email either (which I tried out of frustration)
Ah, okay. I may have just found the answer for myself. Maybe it will help others who are trying to log in. Your user name may not be the same as the name you use on Pokemon Go or other apps they have here. So when you are trying to reset your information you may assume that your user name is the same as the user name that you use on any app or something that you use your trainer account login to get into, but it is not necessarily the same. If your password reset is not working, try this link first: https://club.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-trainer-club/forgot-username
