Could someone explain the whole Random Battle/Rated Battle and PSS for me?

First of all, I know how to battle competitively, so I don't need any help in understanding that.

What I want to know is what is the difference between the two, and how exactly you are rated. In the Global Link I see all the rankings for people and that stuff but I'm confused if whether you're just supposed to battle and get points or what. Are there different rankings for every type of battle? Is there sky battling? What are the rules? Are VGC's related to this? So you get the point, I know nothing about this. I would go on the Global Link site to check for myself but it's closed for maintenance. Thanks! :)

Random battles can be either free battles or rating battles. Free battles will pit you against a random opponent and your wins and loses aren't kept track of and don't affect whom you get randomly matched against. Rating battles pit you against foes who have similar win/loss records to you and your wins and losses are tracked. You get a score that starts at 1,500 and will go up or down as you win and lose. They try to match you against competition that has a similar rating to your own (and this rating differs for each mode: e.g. single, double, rotation, triple). Hope this helps a little!

The game and the Pokemon Global Link site kinda explain it to you.

The Global Link site is still down and the game didn't explain to me when I tried to do a battle.
