    As long as the GTS in the game isn't somehow turned off, or the wifi since they should know that there will be people still playing D/P/P/HG/SS

    I wonder if the little "live trades" they would show where Pokemon were jumping from one part of the globe to another was real.

    Anyways, the site was fun for about 30 minutes. After that, I lost complete interest in it, so not really gonna miss it. Like the above post said, as long as the in-game GTS is still working, I'm fine.

    When a good man goes to war.
    Demons run, but count the loss.

    I wonder for how long the Generation IV GTS and Wi-Fi Battle Tower will remain functional.

    Until Gen VI's debut on 3DS which will pull a Gen III and make previous gens incompatible.

    Or something.

    Also, "may probably" from the article is cool.

    I forgot about that site. I checked it out before I had wifi and forgot about it.

    Since Gen V is coming out it's obsolete.

    I've wondered this too... Hopefully still some years after Black and White.

    But anyway, I loved watching GTS site every one and then. It looked really cool, even it was really useless.

    It's not obsolete since the Generation IV GTS is a separate feature. Besides, the Global Link site apparently won't track the trades in the Generation V GTS, either. However, the GTS site was never very helpful due to having no effect on the games themselves; the real question is if the new GTS will have improved search functions like the ones this site had.

    It was a pretty mediocre site anyway. Wasn't it for, what, looking for people? The ingame GTS did that for you.

    It is a mediocre site since it doesn't affect gameplay. But the site does show how limited the in-game GTS is; it shows all the Pokémon desposited into the system (rather than just the seven search results that come up first), as well as their moves. Of course, the GTS' biggest flaw is making it impossible to search for Pokémon you haven't seen, which is a problem the site obviously doesn't have (although that doesn't change anything in the games).

    I won't miss him. However, I hope this doesn't mean that the GTS o¡itself will be shot down soon. I still need to trade many Pokémon to complete my Dex.
