I've just bought and downloaded Pokemon Gold for my 3DS.

Is it possible for me to trade pokemon with other players somehow? Say, if I wanted an Alakazam or something, which would require trading?

Yes, From the press release it says you can use the wireless features just as was done in Red/Blue/Yellow with Gold and Silver.

As with the Virtual Console versions of Pokemon Red and Blue, and Pokemon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition, Gold and Silver will be compatible with the 3DS wireless communication feature, which means Link Trades and Link Battles between the Virtual Console versions.


  • Ah okay! Did not know that. Not even about the RBY version. Thanks!
