[[bp:Pokémon Diamond and Pearl|Pokémon Diamond and Pearl]] utilises the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection capabilities of the Nintendo DS for multiplayer functionality. It will be possible to trade with players from not just your own country but all over the world, through the GTS, or Global Trade Station. A globe in the GTS records and displays the locations of the players you have traded with.
The Battle Tower, which first appeared in [[bp:Pokémon Crystal|Pokémon Crystal]] and which took advantage of the GB Mobile Adapter, is taken to the next stage in Diamond and Pearl — in the tower is a ''Wi-Fi Battle Room'', where the player is challenged by seven opponents downloaded over the Internet. When you defeat all the opponents, you will be ranked against other players, and the opponents get stronger as you rise through the ranks.
The underground world of Shin'ō introduces a new form of competition to Pokémon: [[wp:capture the flag|capture the flag]]. Players place flags in the secret bases they construct, and the first player to capture the opponent's flag and return to base wins. Players can set traps, surround the opponent with leaves to hinder the opponent and take back their flag. Presumably Pokémon with the appropriate moves will be required for such activities.
The underground is also the site of a new mini-game: the underground tunnels of Shin'ō have treasures embedded in the walls, which can be dug out using the touch pen.
