      Do they give you an error message when you attempt to connect? It would be a good idea to write down the number and enter it here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/lookup.jsp.

      Because there's not a forum you can really move this to. Merging with the Q&A. Honestly though, you might have better luck asking in Trade Corner or Battle Center, since those heavily deal with wifi.

      I myself am not a wifi whizz so I have nothing else to say on the matter, I'm afraid.

          Hello there !
          I'm replaying PMDRed, and I have some questions. I'm using the emulator VBAm, and no cheats. However, when I'll battle some pokemon I can recruit, I save state, so if it doesn't befriend me, I try again :p
          The problem is, some pokemon, as Rattata, which befriending rate is approx. 10%, can't befriend me. I already have their area, and yet it doesn't happen.
          The strange thing is the same thing was happening to Nidoran(f), but then when I fought one, it suddenly befriended, without needing a second trying.

          Why it happens ? Does somebody know the inner mechanism of befriending Pokemon in these games ? The chances I take, or anything alike ?

          Thank you so much !

            So I wanna get one of the older games. I was wondering what the difference was between fire red and red (besides graphics).Thanks in advance.

              Fire Red
              - Sevii Islands (after you get 8th badge
              - Pokemon have genders
              - Move Deleter (to delete HMs or other moves)
              - You can breed pokemon
              - You can catch some pokemon from Jhoto after beating the E4
              - National Pokedex after the E4

              Red
              -its the original which means more glitches and what not

                  Yeah thats about right. It all comes down to which one you prefer. Fire Red IMO is better and you would probably enjoy it better but Red version is the original and is a pretty solid game.

                    Fire Red is definitely much better for everything but nostalgia value. Red hits a wall after you beat the Elite Four and catch Mewtwo, but Fire Red's post-game content has tons of stuff from the Sevii Islands for more catching/exploring to tougher Elite Four rematches.

                    I would play the original Red if you actually want the "nostalgia" effect. I don't think Blue and Red have any major glitches that could inhibit gameplay, so don't worry about that. I mean, if you want more things content-wise, I'd suggest playing Fire Red for the reasons posted by others above, but Red is where it all began and will most likely make you feel like you were just playing the series for the first time, although I don't think you've ever played the original R/B/Y since you said you wanted to get the original games for a change. I say original red, red, red all the way! :p

                    Personally, you just sound unlucky. Btw, Nidoran(f) has a higher recruit rate than Rattata.

                      What about yellow? What differences are there in that game besides the starters?

                        Hi again. I need more advices. So I bought some Pokemon games (Platinum, Mystery dungeon explorers of darkness, and ranger: shadows of almia)(I guess they are all real, not fake, I got them for approx 40$, give or take). I am not going to play Platinum at all as I said before, I will follow the order. I read on the Internet that Pokemon Ranger Guardian sings are better then Shadows of almia, and that Explorers of darkness are the worst out of three in that "generation". I that true?

                        Either way, which one should I play when I get DS Lite, Pokemon Ranger or Mystery dungeon?

                        I personally hate the Ranger series and would recommend Mystery Dungeon over it any day. That's just me though. Ranger really bored me and was more frustrating than fun. PMD, while frustrating at times, it was more of a fuel to keep going rather than a...throw your DS at the wall feeling, like Ranger can give you. lol I found PMD's story to be much more engaging as well. I can't speak for Ranger games past the original however, so hopefully someone else could stop by and help with that.

                        It doesn't really matter which you choose first, as none of the games have anything to do with each other. Personally I really enjoyed both, but I liked the ending of Mystery Dungeon better. Just make sure that with Ranger that you have a screen cover on your DS, or it'll get really scratched.

                        There are only minor changes. You do get to battle Jessie, James and Meowth and there are a lot of other things from the anime in there.

                          I hoped you all would say Ranger, because I remember playing Red rescue team on pc, and just the thought of going to some dungeon, getting to floor xyz and then being killed and returned to the start point is already frustrating. And why is Ranger frustrating?
                          And is there a big difference between Blue rescue team and Explorers of darkness?

                          And is there a big difference between Blue rescue team and Explorers of darkness?
                          There isn't much of a difference between Blue and Darkness. Darkness has a really good ending (made me cry ;;). I really liked Ranger too, but it didn't make me cry. It's not annoying, you just need to make sure you have a cover slip for your touch screen, because you might scratch it if things get intense.

                            They're really quite cheap, and I have to insist on one. You just have to look at my old DS to see how much I butchered the screen playing Pokémon Dash and Ranger.

                                Has any one heard about the event meloetta coming to GS in march? I'm finding nothing about it at serebii or bulba at all.

                                Not sure how you missed it. It's on Serebii.

                                With thanks to all of you for sending this in, we now have details of the Meloetta event in North America. This event will be distributed via Gamestop stores across North America from March 4th to March 24th for all Generation V games. It's currently unknown if this event will match the Japanese one in level and moves but we'll bring details as soon as we can

                                  I only look at the "current and upcoming" events page and there's nothing about it on that page.

                                  I don't think it has been updated then yet. It's on the main page if you just scroll down a bit. There's a picture of a Serperior battling a Meloetta where it makes that announcement.
