DUDE!!! I just found out. If you use the pokedex code before the GL, you cna't get an ID. Its bacicly saying, trade your Pokemon into someone else's game, delete your profile, trade them back, and get the C-Gear again. Sorry but that is the only way.

The damage in Japan caused something to happen to the game sync so you have to try again april 13 2011 and you need wifi or you can try it on the computer but you have to download the game Pokemon black or white on your computer

If you have a ds that can have wireless connection that for sure works the best for me at least...

I use Pokemon white 2. I go to game sync for the first time EVER, to get my ID. Then, it loads, and says: "connecting" or something like that. Then it says "communication error" "Disconnecting" Then it just says communication error, and I close it. I have 3 bars of wifi, I havent used ANY hacks on the game or ds, and it still wont work. I am not making a new file, because it took a while to get where I am.

Very simple.
When you start the game (turn it on) go on game sync settings. It will then tell you your game sync code
Hope this helped
