I got a DSi, actually, so I have perfect access to the internet through my secure wireless connection. All you need to do is enter the WEP key and you're good to go.
The problem was that I didn't know crap about the friend code system, but thanks for clearing that up Awesome that you can find out your code in the game (very convenient for lazy people like me who can't bother to go through manuals to find information).
This online thing is great, because I don't know a single person who is playing these games. Or, okay, not quite true, I do know one, single, person, but in order to connect to that person I'm gonna need Wi-fi.
... Should I feel childish for being almost 18 and playing this game? I mean, the fact that nobody else I know here does it makes you feel kinda lame XD ....But whatever, this game is too awesome to let yourself be bothered by what others think... In fact, maybe I'm the mature one, because I can embrace my childishness XD
