    So… As everyone here is quite aware: Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version, and Pokémon Yellow Version/Special Pikachu Edition have been released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

    This is awesome! :D …Except that I face the exact same problem with the eShop version of these games as I do with my physical copies: I have nobody local with which to trade.

    So my question here is, basically: is there a way that I can create a virtual Local Wireless network that my and my non-local friends' xDS systems can connect to for trading/battling in Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow? Sorta like LogMeIn Hamachi, but for Nintendo's hand-held systems instead of PCs.

    I know there's something similar to that for the DS/DSi and the Wii, but does anyone know if there's anything like what I'm describing — for the 3DS family of systems?

    Not possible at the moment, the protocol Nintendo uses for local network is a bit different than normal wifi packets use (aka you and your friend would probably need dedicated hardware to do this).

    Phooey. ò.o Ah well — perhaps in the future, it will be figured out… :)
