Since Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection closed its doors in May, the online functions of all games on the Nintendo DS no longer function, including the fourth and fifth generation of Pokémon games.. This means that only X and Y (and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire when they are released) will function online now.
As such, we have cleaned up the options available on the site to account for this change:
- Areas of the forum dealing with online play (Pokémon Wi-Fi, The Doctor's Clinic, and Pokécharms Organised Play) now display your 3DS friend code on your posts, owing to now being the only code applicable. If you have not set this already, you can find it in your Contact Details settings.
- The profile fields for all fourth and fifth generation friend codes have been permanently removed from the site and are no longer available to access on your profile, or edit in your Contact Details. The affected fields are:
- Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, SoulSilver, Black, White, Black 2, White 2
- Generation 4 and Generation 5 are no longer selectable as prefixes in the Pokémon Wi-Fi forum. The Generation 4 and Generation 5-related prefixes have been left selectable in the Doctor's Clinic due to the presence of battle simulators, however.
