Okay, so I tried to connect to the Online Lobby to do a trade, and a command line window popped up then closed after a while, then the game said something like "You need an internet connection to use the GTS etc. etc.". Did the address of the server change again? Do I have to change a line in a text file somewhere?
I do know that the command line thing is something they are aware of as some people did point that out (I'm guessing they missed an @ECHO OFF equivalent to whatever it is they're using for it). The command prompt showing doesn't do anything to the game itself, it just means a script is being executed.
The online lobby works fine. You should be treated to this message after entering, then be able to get to the lobby itself. If not, maybe you tabbed out and the script timed itself out or something of that nature. Try again without losing focus and see.
Edit: This is from my perspective, btw. It could be that it does have some issues occassionally and you'll need to retry to get things to work. I'm not sure. It's always worked for me, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the same on your end
I tried again just now, and I had the same problem (I fired up the game and went straight to the online lobby without tabbing out, if that helps). I've been able to access the online lobby before and the command window has never appeared.
Maybe it's something with 1.0.4 -- I don't think I've tried doing anything online after getting the Halloween Mystery Gift.
Please don't trade with your saves so you can try to get another mystery gift. We know when this happens and will not be fixing any GTS issues because of it.
If you did that might be why. If not...well I suppose you could try a complete clean install and try again. Beyond that, you might need to get them to look at it as I don't really know how else to troubleshoot that without some sort of error code system.
So if you take a look at the bottom section Here (the last quoted comment/answer on the page) it might be because you can't ping yourself to check for internet...in which case you could try to figure that out. (Firewall/Router configs)
With that said though, I don't know if that is the actual problem...but going off of what L said I guess a new way to check for it is coming soon (Granting that the post was written 10/29/16)
I realize that's Wonder Trade, but same idea anyway
I'm not seeing anything where you're indicating... You're saying Endeavor is found somwhere in front of the cave with the Whimsicottite, right? I vaguely remember picking an item up somewhere around there -- I wonder if maybe they replaced that item with Endeavor since I reached Victory Road? Since I've already picked up all the items I've found so far, maybe I just can't get it anymore.
It is there. That's been proven. Actually, convieniently enough, someone just made this thread a few hours back Reddit . The problem is that not everyone sees it. There are more than a few people who seem to not be able to locate it...it's quite odd.
In all seriousness, I think it would be best if we added that as the location and put a bug notice that not all players see it. If some people have seen it, it's presumably been added there, so it'll likely be the same location later on. If it is this specific location that's the problem with it and it ends up being changed, we can just change the article again.
I've got some trade evolutions to do myself (my own Linkite among them), so getting those out of the way would be nice. If you've got a Spritzee, Xenogen, or Cometeor you want to evolve, this would be the time. Otherwise, I think I'm good on Pokémon -- I've gotten to Victory Road, so I can get pretty much anything I want so long as I put the time into doing so.
