    I am currently in Mexico and will be missing several wi-fi events. I will be here until June, but my Soul Silver game (retail) is back in the states. I was wondering if someone could be so kind as to progress the game far enough for me to download wi-fi events, so that way I may obtain Yellow Forest and any other wi-fi events Nintendo wants to release while I am out of the country. This is the only reason I downloaded the SS ROM. I have tried searching the database provided here on GBAtemp and have yet to find anything that can help. I have the Soul Silver ROM

    Thanks so much for your assistance.

    PS: you may be wondering why I don't do this myself...in the immortal words of Prf. River Song: Spoilers! (Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead, Dr. Who Series 4)

    haven't checked much yet, but as soon as you catch a pokemon for the first time(possibly earlier) you can do mystery gift to receive event stuff.

    Yes, but you download it with your DS.

    You need to get the Pokedex to be able to get wi-fi events, maybe 5 or 6 min after you get your char created.

    [​IMG] While it's true that you can just download these events, there's currently no way to put your rom save on your retail when you get back home... soo... i think you're outta luck unless you have an action replay, nitrohax, or a second ds and a flashcart

    um grab the wondercard when the event comes out online if you have two DS' patch it to a distribution rom and send it to your retail card. I have a feeling that should work

    I am not wanting to put the save on my retail card, I am wanting to put the save on my ROM. I will then link my Yellow Forest "ticket"/code/whatever to my retail pokewalker, there by tricking the Pokewalker into thinking that I got my Yellow Forest "ticket"/code/whatever from my retail game. The only thing that can stop that is if the Pokewalker bonds with my retail cartridge, meaning that once it is linked to a game, it is permanently linked forever or until it runs out of power.

    The routes are unlocked and chosen on the game, not the walker. The walker can be synced to multiple games but not without erasing all the data and doing a reset. Regardless, the wondercard event unlocks the Yellow Forest route on the game.

    You can download the Yellow Forest distribution rom from the net, and if you have two DSs you can run the distro on one and the game on the other to obtain it.

    (This works with the JAP event too, I've already done and unlocked the Yellow Forrest and two others for my Reatil cart game).

    The Pokewalker links via infrared to the retail cart, and no flash cart has that, so even if you download the Yellow Forest, you'd have to inport the save onto the retail cart to use it.

    Ahhh, ok did not know that I needed infrared in order to download that info. I will just have to use AR to get it done; otherwise, I'm boned.

    Ok well since things seem to be getting confusing here I'll just lay out the details

    You have a few options:
    A. Flash Cart and Retail method (DL Distrobutional rom and send it to retail Cart)
    B. AR Codes
    C. Download it using the retail cart

    Do note that the yellow forest is one of the Cards that cannot be given to friends.
