The ability to add your game's friends to your Dream Pals list, allowing you to visit their house

This is why I continue to use my DS for my Pokemon games. Though most of my friends switched over to 3DS, so I've had to re input their codes anyway.
i was there this morning i put my gene-st a sleep

I got nearly all the items except some of the dolls and the two newest homes. So that is what I am working on. The newest homes!

Yes we do. Well once the PGL is back up and I see how things work we can confirm our palpad codes and trade something simple just to be on each others list! :)

How come yah dont wanna battle ;)

I guess I could battle too but I think some of the battle mechanics are annoying. I mean why in the world would they allow a battle setup that lets any level pokemon? Dumb. They should allow you to always control the level cap. I enjoy fighting level 50 (when they force all pokemon to be level 50). That makes sense and is fair. I dunno, played some cheap battles in my life and it discourages me.
aw i thought it automatically went to lv 50? I nv played a game (except once and it was on purpose) that wasnt automatically 50, 10, or 100.. :palm:

There are rules you can set up but again a lot of the times it is not fair so what is the point? That is just the way I see it. I would personally like the option to make the levels anywhere between 10-100 in increments of 10. That would be awesome. Can you imagine  battles with level 10 pokemon! Now that is fun/different.
Ben, I have traded with other people in the past, and I haven't been able to visit them.  How does this work?  I sooo confused!

It is something they added. So I am not sure per say. I think that when you put a pokemon to sleep/ wake a pokemon up, it should update/sync with your current list of pal pad friends and if they have a dream world account set up you should be able to visit them that way. It is the only way that makes sense. Don't ill be in contact once I know more. I wanna visit you! :)
What in the wild world of sports is going on here? <-- Does anyone know what movie that's from? :cool:

Seriously though, routine maintenance is over:
  • US: Tuesdays: 3:00 a.m. ET to 9:00 a.m. ET
  • UK: Tuesdays: 08:00 to 14:00
  • Australia: Tuesdays: 17:00 to 23:00 (AEST)
I like how they make this disclaimer though:

Pokémon Global Link (maintenance page) said:

Some maintenance may be required beyond the given time frame for major upgrades and so on. In that case, you can get info at "Information" on the home page. If unexpected errors occur, maintenance may be performed without warning.

I'd like to at least know what's going on. My Berries are likely wilting by now.
