Don't buy this piece of trash! This game had to be the absolute worst Pokemon game ever made. I thought online play would be cool, but it wasn't. It's a slow laggy, boring waste of time. If you have diamond or Pearl stick with those.

So what about playing over the internet? How is that done? We got this game for Christmas and I am disappointed but my son is enjoying it even though we don't have a DS....
First you would have to configure the Wifi from your main Wii system menu, and test it. After that is successful run the system update to get your Wii up to date. Then from inside of PBR you can configure the Wifi and test it out, it will use the settings configured from the main wii systems console. You can do random battles after that from the Wifi lobby. Or if your kid has friends that also have the game they can trade friend codes to play each other.
I haven't set it up in a while, so it's not an exact description but will hopefully provide enough of the basics to get the wifi running. If your kid does know someone with a DS that has Diamond/Pearl they can upload their pokemon to your kid's Wii, and they could use those for better choices, or to see a rare in 3d. You don't need that same DS every time you play, once they're uploaded they're uploaded for keeps. Unless you over-write them with another upload, or delete them.
