I have White and I recently got Platinum. Do you need a ds/dsi to do this, or will a newer 3ds work?

Any system that can run the game, I'd think.

Well, this is a bit of a shame. Now that I'm finally trying again, it's not working for me in either game. In Pearl it hangs in the middle of the "Searching for a gift..." message, and in White it throws the error that there's no access point in range. I was alerted recently that someone was able to get it to work in their copy of Pearl but not White, and that them being in Germany might have had something to do with it, but they were still able to receive the events on Pearl. Any more info anyone can provide here would be welcome.

Looking at this channel, it is abundantly clear that bingo is still, in fact, his name-o. There's a link to a video in the description that details how to get on KaeruTeam's server in a way that apparently still works.

Is this common knowledge yet or is the general Pokemon community unaware of this? I'm just thinking of all the trading forums that could have their economy absolutely destroyed by members figuring out how to, basically, obtain unlimited event Pokemon.

PPSEDS or PKSV already had that under control? xD
Ask me about betrayal.
Ask me about depression.
Ask me about death.
Ask me about destruction.
Ask me about hardship.
I've been through s**t.

^ Yep. Injected Wonder Cards, cloning, rebattle codes, and all that have always been accepted in the competitive community since the dawn of VGC, and rightfully so. All that was ever looked at is whether a Pokémon itself is indistinguishable from one obtained fully legally. This is why RNG manipulation was looked into for non-TAS purposes. If you can't get it within the bounds of the game without any external modifications, it won't fly in any Wi-Fi community worth mentioning. (Something caught after using the RETIRE trick, Glitzer Popping, or ACE (before transferring through Bank) presents a strange case in that while it does fit those criteria, it isn't tournament-legal for obvious reasons.)

Howeeeeeever, most players don't care about Wi-Fi battles or VGC, again for obvious reasons. Considering how most players approach the game, and the fact this gives the chance to RNG legitimate copies of these event Pokémon in the case that someone for whatever reason can't inject a Wonder Card into their save, it's a nice thing to have around.
