I was attempting to access GTS on my copy of heartgold after hearing my girlfriend couldn't access GTS on her soulsilver or platinum. I can access the internet with my DS but cannot use the GTS at all. Is anyone else having issues with the GTS?
There tends to be server issues when it comes to people trading over online causing it to overload. Just wait for awhile or even tomorrow and it should be settled. though, why not trade with your girlfriend via the Pokemon Center Union Room?
Does anyone know how to make sure a pokemon in trade is legit? How do you make sure you dont get a hacked pokemon? I know that special distribution pokemon, like the wishmaker Jerachi, have special poke balls and ots.
