Guys, guys, guys, guys, GUYS! As you are all aware the 20th of May is the official date of the Nintendo Wi-Fi apocalypse, with many Wii and DS games (amongst which the DS Pokémon games) losing their online capabilities. Now, the nice people of the Mario Kart Wii community have come up with a way to use their own custom servers to do all the Wi-Fi shenanigans you might want to do. I'm not sure how it works yet and I'm not sure what you'll need to do to make it work, but that doesn't matter right now, what matters right now is that if you do not register your friend codes on their site before the 18th of May you will not be able to use your current codes for online play. That means having to restart you Pokémon game, having to unlock every character again in Mario Kart or Brawl and other annoying things you'll have to do which aren't simply playing the game. This probably isn't as relevant for Brawl (because, honestly, who's still going to play that once SSB4 comes out) and Mario Kart Wii (although it might still be unique enough to warrant the occasional game even when MK8 comes out), but for your old Pokémon games, your own Animal Crossing villages and stuff like that this might be important. If anything, it's a zero-risk high-reward kind of proposition. An important note is that you apparently need not only your own FC but the FC of someone who has you added, so get your friends to register as well. (On that note, bacon, PMJ, anyone else who has me added on MKW or SSBB, I'm in there.) Here's a video explaining stuff. Here's where you need to go to join the cool-kids-club. If anyone has any more details on how and why this will work, feel free to share. I don't have the time to do much research at the moment, but I figured I'd best get the word out as soon as possible, because the deadline is approaching rapidly. Good luck!
