    You didn't meet after school at all? That's horrible.

    They were completely banned on school grounds. I guess if my friends came over we could but I don't remember having many friends over that had Pokemon.

    No plaza nearby or empty loot to meet after school? Ah whatever I remember having to trade with myself until the DS generation.

    Ah okay.

    No wonder the Gameboys were banned, they could have got stolen.

    Amyway I got a cloned Mew if anyone wants to trade a Celebi for it.

    Sucks that this'll make wonderlockes impossible in the future but I guess it's expected.

    Wonder trade does not require global link.

    Except it took a couple months before they killed the Gen V one.

    November 2019 --> February 2020 is one month more than a couple.

    Context: XY out in October 2013, Global Link for Gen 5 ended in January 2014. Sounds about right. And for XY/ORAS, global link service ended before Sun and Moon even came out.

    Exactly! Global Link has technically been around for a long time, but it's hardly been an unbroken line of service for its entire lifetime.

    I am still so cheesed that I missed out on the Ultra Final Online Competition and the Shiny Tapu Koko. They waited five freakin' months since the previous competition! There was no obvious notification anywhere I was looking! It was sorely tempting to buy a code off of eBay, but they were all like $15 USD or something and it was impossible to justify for a Wonder Card I could replicate just as easily with pkhex. Maybe some day in the distant future the whole code-generation system will be cracked wide open.

    Anyway, https://nintendoeverything.com/poke...-you-gift-of-fennels-munna-to-be-distributed/ says the link for Munna should be over here.

    ETA: That link may be user-specific.

    Does anyone actually still use Global Link? Reply if you do, I'm honestly curious.
    I remember trying it once in X/Y, because I found out you could buy rare candies there pretty cheap with the miles you get from trading. Never touched it again, certainly not gonna miss it. It was a cool novelty being able to transfer a Pokemon out of your game and onto a website, but it was rather extraneous to the game itself. Nothing of particular importance could be done through it.

    I got a lot of Pokemiles from Streetpasses. Unfortunately I never progressed far enough in the game to make practical use of them. :-/

    I can't get the stupid code to show and I already registed Sun, Moon and Ultra Sun and Moon.

    Edit: I keep getting "The special code will display only when you are logged in with a qualifying game." But I logged in! What else do you want? Go online using the 3DS web browser?

    I got it. I think it means you need to start up the game on your 3DS, go to the Festival Plaza, and then connect to the Internet (i.e. by tapping the icon that looks like a Wi-Fi symbol in the lower right end of the touch screen).

    I did that, still no stupid code. I even disabled ad blockers and all plug ins in my web browser.

    That's exactly what Pokemon Home is for.

    I mean, did you go to the website while you were still connected in the game on your 3DS?
