    I've been having wifi troubles with my trading lately. :( I've only tried to trade with two people and I have the info in correctly (my wifi works with Pokecheck) and I change my DNS back to my home wifi when I'm done so that I can trade, but no one ever shows up in the room. idk what I'm doing. :(

    On a good note, I RNG'd an awesome shiny Shinx for my pair Nick. :) And did a request for another one of our favorite smods, Luke. A super cool shiny Cranidos with ICE BEAM. I was excited about that.

      I don't have a solution to your problem, but you can still trade with people even with the Pokecheck DNS. >.>

      Can you use the normal GTS with your DNS?

      I can? Maybe I should try that instead. I just found it odd I could use Pokecheck, but I'm having trouble with seeing people in the wifi room. Or maybe it's not me and it's them, idek. :(

      I haven't tried GTS with my normal DNS.

        the normal GTS hasn't worked with me when i use a different DNS but strangly enough the random match ups did. its probably your friends. if i had a nickel for every hour i spent waiting on friends in the wifi room, i could buy pokemon white 2 with only like 34 dollars coming from my wallet

        Hmm...wifi problems. I've had that specific problem happen to me. It usually resolves itself for me. Idk what the actual reason for it could be. Bad connection between 2 players? I dunno.

        As for the GTS, iirc the game auto acquires it whenever you connect to nintendo's servers. If you set it to something else obviously it's not gonna work.

            have you tried a timer ball? or do they not have them in whatever game your playing?

            It's really starting to bug me that all the Trade Corner challenges are exclusively for RNGers. RNG does not encompass the whole of Trade Corner. There is no reason that IV breeders should be excluded from these challenges. It's not like we would have some sort of advantage, we just enjoy a different way of getting high quality Pokemon and are willing to put the time into it. I'm not gonna twist anyone's arm over this, but it's something to think about.

            I had to breed a Pokemon who set off Pokecheck's "Likely RNGed or Edited" filter in the legality analysis, just to participate in the last challenge. I'd rather not lie and would prefer to proudly say that I IV bred whatever entries I do.

            Just to clear something up. There was a mistake when I posted the new challenge. It's not exclusive to RNG abusers. Open to all who want to participate.

            I can't speak for Musica, but I can only assume he wants his Lugia to be caught in a Heavy Ball. As for why anyone would want to do that over something more convenient, it's for aesthetics.

            Also, Heavy Balls are only available in HG/SS.

                He isn't doing it to show off his luck roosterman, he's doing it for the aesthetics of having a ball with a matching color scheme.

                    Still having wifi troubles. :( I tried to trade with Nick and we didn't show up for each other in the wifi room, and this is the third person this has happened with. I've tried my home DNS and Pokecheck's DNS and can't get people to show up in wifi, but I can use the GTS with Pokecheck. I have no clue what's wrong. :/

                            This is general and about trade, so I'm putting it here.

                            Has Gamefreak implemented some safe way of doing trade evolutions? This was one of the things I hated the most since the original games. But back when it was done via link cable, it was somewhat safe because you would only do it with a friend, who would return your Pokémon afterwards.

                            Nowadays, however, we have the GTS. If you need a quick trade to evolve your Pokémon, and you have no available trustworthy people, what can you do? This is what's hindering me from buying the actual carts instead of a flashcart, because I love a lot of the Pokémon that evolve via trade, but trading with anyone you find runs a high risk of losing your Pokémon.

                            Also, do people still trade in 4th gen?

                            You could ask a reputable trader if they'd help you with it. I've seen people negotiate it in #tradecorner before. Some people post in the Quick Trade Thread for it, but idk, not always can random traders be trustworthy. Most people with trade shops are good candidates.

                            And yes, some people still do 4th gen trades.
