Nintendo has revealed that they will be closing the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii. All games that have Internet functionality will no longer be able to access those options. Games will still be playable locally, just without the Internet options.

Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service for Nintendo DS and Wii to end in May

As of May 20, 2014, certain online functionality offered through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will no longer be accessible. The discontinued services include online play, matchmaking and leaderboards for many Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi games. For a comprehensive list of games and services that are affected, please check http://support.nintendo.com/servicesupdate. Users can still play the games in offline mode, which continues to offer a rich game-play experience.

Online play for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games will be unaffected (aside from the Wii mode on Wii U and Nintendo DS games on Nintendo 3DS family systems). Other online functionality, such as access to the Wii Shop Channel, the Nintendo DSi Shop and video-on-demand services, are also not affected at this time.

We at Nintendo sincerely thank our fans for their continued support of our company’s legacy systems. Your enthusiasm for games made for these systems speaks to their longevity, and the passion of Nintendo fans.

List of affected Nintendo software titles:

Note: Game functionality that does not require an Internet connection will remain unchanged.

Nintendo Australia has updated its original announcement regarding the Pokémon Video Game Australian National Championships with further details of registration and competition times:

• Perth (Supanova Pop Culture Expo) Sunday 30th June. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Melbourne (The Deakin Edge, Federation Square) Saturday 6th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Brisbane (Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Mezzanine Level 1) Sunday 7th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Adelaide (AVCon Anime and Video Game Convention) Saturday 13th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

• Sydney (Crystal Palace, Luna Park) Sunday 14th July. Registration 10am, Competition 11am - 5pm

The official competition rules have also been posted on Nintendo.com.au. The rules appear to be a modified version of Pokemon.com's Play! Pokémon Tournament Rules. A notable difference is that Nintendo Australia is permitting players to change their team lineups between rounds.

Also of note is the fact that point 1 states that "Pokémon Black Version 2, Pokémon White Version 2, Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version Game Cards can be used", however point 7.1 contradicts this and states "Only Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Game Cards are permitted for use.". It is recommended that hopeful competitors adhere to rule 7.1 to avoid disappointment if Pokémon Black and Pokémon White end up not being allowed on the day.

picNintendo has posted a press release indicating that cell phone apps like PokéCreator are becoming more prevalent and players of the Pokémon games should not use them. Nintendo also made it very clear that players who are caught using hacked Pokémon in official tournaments will be disqualified and banned from participation in future tournaments. It's unclear why Nintendo has finally decided to make a statement regarding save hacking as PokeSav and fake GTS servers have been around for years. The Pokémon Japanese VGC 2013 tournament was last week though and may have been the reason for the press release.
