    I'm really confused right now. Would we be able to use standard DS wireless play to battle each other or is it only this infrared bullcrap? I've heard many say that wireless can be used to battle friends, and I don't know who to believe.

    There are 3 methods of connection:

    Infrared
    Wireless
    Wifi

    You can battle on all 3 of them, you can battle anywhere without the need to go to a pokemon centre using the infrared though

    Wireless is still Pokemon center required though? You sure of this? I knew about the wifi types but I heard to play multiplayer with a friend you can only battle via infrared. [​IMG] However thanks for the info.

    Well if the only method was IR then Wireless wouldn't be viewable in the battle menu.
    IR is for quick battles and box trades. Wireless is for Union room which also allows battles and trades but restricted to pokecenters.

    The games not out yet so I'm not sure.
    It's probably going to be the same as the other games. Go to a Pokemon center to play multiplayer wirelessly and online.
    ...
    Whoever told you multiplayer with a friend is only infrared is an idiot.
    Unless you're just trying to save face.
    In that case, [​IMG]

    I'm not saving face at all. I'm just genuinely confused. [​IMG] Go talk to XXLANCEXX if you wanna hear a good story.

    I wonder if the 3DS and DS Family would be compatible in multi-player?

    Well, duh.
    Why wouldn't they be compatible?
    They both connect wirelessly.

    But sometimes Nintendo is full of CRAP and might not allow it. (I want to give away one of my DSes and buy a 3DS to support the multiplayer part also)

    If the 3DS isn't going to be compatible with the other DS's I would probaly never even get it.

    DS games played on a 3DS will be able to connect with DS games played on a DS.
