    Gambia, The
    Voice Chat IS confirmed. There is even a screenshot of it in Coro Coro Comics.
    I kinda hope they'll ban all the DS units of cheaters and pirates. [​IMG]

    I'm actually a tad disappointed that Pokemon can now be easily traded world wide - message boards will be filled with "DO YOU HAVE A LVL 110 SURFING SQUIRTLE WITH ELECTRIC FIRESHOCK TO TRADE?!" etc.
    Not to mention people with the rom will be able to back up their save and trade an unlimited amount of the same pokemon/item to players worldwide - cheating can spread a lot faster because you no longer have to meet up with whoever you want to trade with (I guess animal crossing is in the same position).

    But it's pokemon, so I dont really care anyway [​IMG]

    I agree with you about the trading system. They should've made trading only available locally. Pokemon WiFi is gonna be filled with cheaters.

    I semi-care about this [​IMG]

    Guess that means you'll be banned too! Like Mario Kart DS, Wifi online is only fun against friends. Suggest only trading and battling with friends that way you won't have to worry about cheaters.

    They could however, implement a system where a pokemon's hidden id is logged and if the same trainer tries to send the same one more than once it won't let them. Hmm.

    Going off what I read flash carts is a small percentage of the sales so if 85% of the people out there are using legit carts then maybe Nintendo did not worry about save restoring tricks. Of course the easiest thing for them to do is to stop Roms from going online then the WIFI system would work and people can trade properly. Putting a unique ID per pokemon would be impossible as when you trade the pokemon it would then put the ID blocker on your save. Restoring your old save would bring back your pokemon and remove the ID blocker. The only way the ID Blocker system would work is if Nintendo has some huge database....then again deleting your WFC data would probally fix this? No idea....seems like the pokey kids are fuct. I hope all the damn pokemon are in the game at least.

    More than 85% of people will use legit carts. I reckon it's more like 99% most DS owners won't know what a flashcart is

    but perhaps there must be a way to prevent cheating:

    they should at least prevent players who does not own a legitimate copy of the game to connect worldwide or even locally.

    I am looking forward to this game, I had the first one, the blue version. Not really played the others much, so should be fun to get back into it.

    I don't get what was "uncovered" here. Seems like a fluff article to me. And if you guys don't want to face cheaters, then simply don't face them. Only play friends you trust.

    Most people don't even know what a flash cart is, I'd say maybe about 96% are clueless. Take that and the fact that most people with flash carts only know how to download, let alone search for codes or use command prompt to patch a rom.

    I dont think many pokemon fans will have DS flashcarts.. sure it will be a problem but I dont think it will be too big
