If you have two DS you can trade via the infrared on the C-Gear menu. Level grind and try and catch a Trapinch as they are Ground type and can easily wipe out Elesa's Zebstrika and Ampharos, (Electric had no effect on Ground) but not so much with Emolga since it is also a Flying type and thus, Ground will have no effect on it. Trapinch evolves into Vibrava and then Flygon, both Ground/Dragon types. Good luck. =B
Actually, Snivy is the best of the 3 starters and the other Pokemon (save Audino) are actually decent if you know what you are doing. So just train a bit till your best is about a level or two higher than the gym leader's first Pokemon or else stronger than trainers in gyms with only one Pokemon. Then the rest should be a level or two behind. This game is honestly not that hard pre-League.
I'm a bit baffled. With wi-fi you should be able to connect to the internet and trade online. I really can't wrap my head round what you mean by being by just using wi-fi without an internet connection.
If you can get online I can give you some cool pokemon. If not you can only trade with someone physically nearby over local wireless.
I'm confused too. The communication upgrades on the game is actually a litle overwhelming for me. I have wi-fi, but it wants my DSi to be connected to the internet via system settings, which I can't access due to parental controls. So... i don't know.
I had considered the changes a good thing as they mean you can connect to the more common WPA wireless networks. I'm afraid I hadn't considered they would affect people with parental controls. As long as you have those on I'm afraid I can't think of a way around. Sorry.
I have Pokemon black two and I do have a water type. I got a Golduck too that is about level 54... might not listen to you but I might have something else tho I don't have many pokemon since I just use the ones I like. xD
