    You're not trying to use the link I posted, are you..? Checking again, it looks like the exact link is user-specific.

    After you login with your username and password on the website, there should be a "Personal Notification" in the center of the page. Click on that, then click where it says "Click here".

    Don't see it anywhere, maybe is different on mobile? Maybe I should use Chrome or something?

    Won't happen. The codes don't generate wondercards, they're just an access code for cards that are on the server. The cards eventually get taken down or otherwise rendered inaccessible after some time.

    The closest you could do is custom mystery gift server, as far as I remember there exists a hack that does this and which lets you receive any card by entering the card ID as the serial code, but I don't remember if this is for Gen. 6 or Gen. 7.

    Not super worth it though imo, if you can use rom hacks then you can just add cards via PKHeX and the result is the same.

    I use Firefox. Time for a screenshot, I guess?
    munna.

    Yes, there would definitely have to be some kind of fake server set up. It would be neat if it was accessible without hacking, like the new replacement for WFC. But I wouldn't expect that to happen for a long time, if it ever does.

    For me the PGL died when TPC discontinued the Pokemon Dream World. It really didn't have much else of value, and I'm still hoping the Kaeru Team can finish that PDW revival.
    Might log on to get Fennel's Munna, and that's really the last I'll see of the PGL. Can't believe they didn't reuse it for SwSh like they have since BW.

    Yeah. It's pretty lucky that unofficial servers on DS without any mods was possible, it's not likely that an exploit like this would exist for the 3Ds unfortunately. But at least, the 3DS can be modded for free, so we can redirect to alternate servers and it doesn't cost users anything extra, unlike the DS where you used to have to buy a flashcart or action replay.

    I don't see that, trying again with stupid Chrome.

    Edit:

    Okay, I give up. I tried with Firefox and Chrome, both in Windows and mobile and with Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. I had to endure the stupid website lagging and crashing but even when everything worked perfectly I still didn't get the stupid notification to get the stupid egg. Thank you Nintendo and Gamefreak, you made me waste my time for nothing!

    And no, I didn't use a hacked 3DS or Luma or anything, I used two unmooded 3DS and the original games. Maybe the egg is USA only or something?

    I do have a third 3DS, that one does have Luma on it, I guess someone could sent me a save file with the stupid egg or something?

    It didn't worked for me either, I read in a forum that it's only for people who had registered before the ending announcement.

    That does explain it, so I did indeed register for nothing.

    Well you wasn't the only one.

    What I really wanted to know is if Festival Plaza will go off or if it will lose functions and which functions it will lose

    Wonder Trade doesn't depend on the GTS (I think) so you can still get people in your VIP and guests lists until all 3DS online services go down. And even then if you do keep the maximun people in your VIP list they will stay there if you are online, they just won't be updated. So is still possible to keep ranking up the plaza.

    Dream World was Gen V. It was shut down long before Sun and Moon were released.

    It was shut down when the DS and Wii online services went down.

    I have been using PGL for 9 years now, and I don't want it to shut down. They could just adjust it to Gen 8. They even could let you visit it straight in the Switch, but I guess it doesn't work like the past 3 generations. Also, Dream World. They didn't need to shut it down

    Since there are new Pokemon games for the Switch, and the paid Polemon banks lets you transfer Pokemon to the Switch games, and the GTS is free, what do you think?
