VI. Specialty Topics

There are special topics on the trade boards that are a formal association of people with similar interests or offer services to traders. These topics are often denoted as guilds, stations, or shops and exist as part of the trade board community. You may join as a member of these topics if those topics allow. Check the topics for membership information.

Do not attempt to make a new guild, station, or shop unless there is need for it. For example, do not create an Editing Guild if there is already a topic that offers editing. Do not create a guild for the sole purpose of chatting. It should contribute to the Trade Boards by informing, helping, or keeping on-topic with trading.


VII. WiFi Problems

Sometimes, there will be trades where two traders may have problems contacting when in the WiFi room. Here are some examples:

1. Trader failed to respond...

This is a common issue with WiFi Trading. This will sometimes happen for some trades and if it occurs, try the following:

>Host the Trade, with VC Off.
>If that fails, let the other person host the trade with VC Off.

If each one fails, both players should log off of WiFi and then log back in! This solves many of the problems. Another step is to re-add each other’s FCs. This solves many errors with Error Code 91010. Otherwise, you can either repeat the above steps or try trading with someone else. Although uncommon, there WILL be connections that won’t ever work so be sure to try to above steps before stopping.

2. When trader A registers trader B’s FC and connects to the WiFi room and trader B says he/she is on WiFi, trader A does not see trader B in the WiFi room.

There are some possibilities for this:

One possibility is that a glitch may have occurred, most commonly known as the trade delay glitch. If a trader enters the WiFi room before the other trader registers the other’s FC, log off and re-add the FC. This will solve most problems.

Another possibility is that trader B did not register trader A’s FC into his/her pal pad. If both traders do not register each other in their pal pad, they may not see each other in the WiFi room.

Another possibility is that trader A or B may have a NEW FC assigned to him/her. This happens when the DS game is used to log on to WiFi with a different Nintendo DS. Trader A and B should make sure that the FC in the Pal Pad matches the FC given in the topic. Update the other trader if this is the case.

In rare cases, both traders may add each other’s FCs and either one or both do not see each other in the WiFi room despite correct FCs. To be safe, both traders should delete the other’s FC from the Pal Pad and re-add.

3. When a trade is about to finish, both users receive a blue screen saying the connection was lost. Both trader A and trader B have the same Pokémon but another Pokémon involved in the trade is lost.

When the connection is lost in the right time during a trade, a Pokémon may be lost and a cloned copy of the other Pokémon appears. If this is the case, then there is no way to recover the lost Pokémon. To be safe, make a cloned version of the Pokémon before trading.

If all else fails, contact your Wireless Router's maker and ask them for step-by-step instructions on how to set up a DMZ connection. DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone and it essentially allows a system to connect to the internet without disabling the entire system's security.
