Nope. You need a DS to access a Wi-Fi connection.

Okay:
GTS(Global Trade Station) is where you can search for pokemon, you'll need atleast one badge to get their.Wi-Fi is when you exchange a code witgh somebody here and the game will somehow recognize it.You can battle and trade through Wi-Fi.It is exclusive to the DS and Wii, but only with Wi-Fi enabled games like:
Animal Crossing:Wild World(DS)
Pokemon Battle Revolution(Wii)

well i dont think you shouldnt since thats one of the best features that it has and when you beat the game you can battle and trade with anyone around the world.
its a fun thing to do.:)

Harper, I live in Australia.

It came out June 21st, and is around $60 - $70. Just check at EB, Big W, Target, and practically ALL good electronic stores. If you haven't seen it when you've gone shopping, you're probably not looking at all. DS' are $180.

DS can play GBA games and you can put your pokemon from your GBA games to Diamond and Pearl when you've gained the National Dex, which doesn't take long.

Hope that helped.

yeh i probably will buy it... when i get the money...
Oh, and playa? DOnt u EVER diss weedle! you havnt seen it's secret move that works realy well against things with wings and breath fire with pot-bellies. It kills them in one hit! So watch out next time your walking through viridian forrest and ur charizard is lookin a bit jumpy.


weedles are about...
