Hi my name is Charles Scott and I'm an administrator at thepikaclub.co.uk.
I've been playing Pokemon for over 10 years, and yes, I have caught them all. In this video I'm going to show you how to play the Pokeman online. One of the best things about the Pokeman game on the DS System is the ability to battle anybody anywhere in the world by using Wi-Fi.
So in order to do that, we need to connect the console online. So inside the game we go to a Pokemon Center and inside there's a section on the right hand side that leads downstairs. Now, until you get your first badge in the first gym this will actually be blocked off to you.
But once you've got that you can head downstairs. Now, down here there are three ladies. On your first trip down here, the lady on the right hand side will hand you an item called the Pal Pad.
Now the Pal Pad is what you use to gather friend codes. It will hand you your Friend Code to pass out to other people and it will let you register their friend codes to you. Now this is essential as you'll need each other's Friend Codes to play each other online.
The lady in the middle will connect you to Wi-Fi Battles and Wi-Fi trading. This will allow you to use friend codes to trade and battle other people online. In Pokemon Platinum, Heart Gold and Soul Silver the lady on the left will enter Wi-Fi Plaza.
Now this will let you to play a variety of mini games online against other people. I've got my Pal Pad here, but I haven't got any friends registered and I haven't got my Friend Code so I'm going to go up to the lady in the middle and ask her to join the Wi-Fi Club. So, she tells me I have no friends registered but if I want to I can connect to the Wi-Fi and get my Friend Code, so I select yes.
So, I'm going to ask you to save the game and then she'll lead you into the back. Now on this screen you select to actually connect to Wi-Fi. Once you've connected to Wi-Fi if this is your first time it will give you your Friend Code, disconnect you and cause you to leave back into the center.
If you've got other Friend Codes registered it will then take you to another screen where you can select to battle or trade. At which point your friend will come online, select your match or trade and carry on from there. And that is everything you need to know on how to battle online.
