Hey darthbunnyva!

The reason you need a wi-fi to redeem your pokemon is for Nintendo to be able tu check that every code is unique and people are not cheating the system and getting the pokemons they don't own.

To set up your Nintendo DS for online use just follow these official nintendo guides for configuring your wi-fi

Hope this helped!

I cant get viniki on pokemon black


First you'll need a ticket to liberty island which is only available via wi-fi (mystery gift at main menu). If you don't have it now, you've probably missed your chance, but there may be another one.
There are two ways to get Victini (Don't worry I get a load of typos =P).
1. With the liberty ticket, go to Castelia city and find the liberty pier. Speak to the boat operator. Fight through the team Plasma grunts on the island and you'll find Victini. DON'T waste your masterball, save that for Kyurem (Big Ice and Dragon type follow-up to Zekrom & Reshiram In the great crater). Take it's health down into the red and use a move that freezes or puts it to sleep. This should be fairly easy as it knows endure. Save before the battle so if you K.O. it you can try again. Once it's asleep and weakened, just keep throwing ultra balls. If you've K.O'ed it and saved, don't panic, just fly to Castelia city and back and it'll still be there. DON'T run from the battle or it won't come back.
2. In the event you've run and saved, don't have the liberty ticket, or just can't be bothered, go to the GTS (Global Trade Station) and search for Victini. There are bound to be some rip-offs, so beware who you trade with, but you should be able to find a fair deal. Don't waste any legendarys on him!
Phew... Long one. Hope this helps, if you bothered to read it all =3

Hi I got the new pokemon game (White version) and I am trying to get the event gift ( a pokemon) and its asking me for wi fi but it says its an error code 51099 Can you please help.


There are certain types of WiFi that can't be picked up by the DS Lite which prompts you error 51099. For example, you can't use a security protected WEP WiFi. I encountered this problem with my DS also and if you know how to remove the password on your WiFi router, that should solve the problem, however it leaves your network unsecured so I suggest doing that only to receive the event gift.
Nintendo also has a detailed troubleshoot guide for that error which I've provided a link below.

Cheers and good luck with getting Victini!

Ok so i was trying to get an access point on my pokemon black version and i have wifi at my house but when i searched for an accss point it popped up wit a remark that said "The access point's...


The Nintendo DS can only connect to 802.11b networks with WEP encryption (see here). Make sure your access point is 802.11b with WEP encryption in order for your Nintendo DS to be able to connect to it. Than you can try connecting it again.
Good luck.

Update


im sorry but you might have to be a bit more specific. I dont think u can update a ds game. and u cant connect it to the computer. the possible putcome i gathered from that is that he wants to play his game online and trade pokemon etc. meaning u need to connect the ds to your computer wirelessly using a
-nintendo wi-fi usb connector-( a usb drive u basically plug into ur computer and gives off internet for nintendo products) or a -wireless router or modem- ( the black box that the cables go through for internet).

When your grandson plays the game and wants to go online, (i will explain how to use this using directions in the game)
1. turn on the ds and load the game
2. watch the introduction movie (shiny pokemon)
3. on the main screen where you decide to either continue, new game, or -NINTENDO WFC SETTINGS-, go to nintendo wfc settings
4.tap the blue box labelled nintendo wi-fi connection settings
5.if ur using a Wi-fi usb tap connect to wifi usb or if using wireless internet tap a blank connection square
6. follow the prompts for the wifi usb and u will be connected to the internet
7. for wireless internet, tap search for an access point
8. when it has found the wireless internet tap O.K/connect/next etc and follow the prompts
9.when thats connected return to pokemon Diamond main screen then tap new game/continue to play
10. walk to the pokemon centre and go downstairs to battle online - or go into a house in
(Jublife city?) to trade pokemon online

WOAH!! that was a lot of writing!
hope i helped plz make a comment or something if u need my help again
