How To: Contact the Pokemon Company Support

Pokemon LogoRecently I’ve been playing a lot of Pokemon Duel which is an incredibly fun chess-like game that involves some strategy and luck to come out on top.

Rather than use your Google account or Apple ID to log into the app, the game simply lets you create a game account without any kind of information. This is where the problem lies. When you change devices, you need to go into the app and create what’s called a transfer code. This allows you to transfer your account data to another device. What I was unaware of was that the code is SINGLE USE!

That’s right! Each time you switch devices, you need to generate a new transfer code. Not knowing that, I wiped a device assuming I could use the same code, and boom! Nope!

So I went searching for a support email on the web and it was a pain in the butt to find, but I found their support info.

Here’s the link for the Pokemon Group’s support page.

It has support info for:

  • Pokemon Trainer Club
  • Pokemon Go Plus
  • Pokemon Duel
  • Pokemon Shuffle Mobile
  • Pokemon Trading Cards and Products

Hope this helps if ever you need support!


Welcome to A Boy and His Blog!

Welcome to my updated, fresh, and clean blog!

I spend a lot of my spare time on my hosting company helping people with their blogs and getting them all set up with various items from google such as Analytics, AdSense and even GSuite (Google Apps for Domains).

I plan to cover a wide variety of geeky topics surrounding setting up blogs, getting the most out of your hosting, and what to look out for when maintaining your blog.

I’ll also be going into more detail on when you would need a dedicated server VS when shared hosting will do the job.

If there’s anything specific you’d like me to cover or that you’d like to learn more about, please do leave a comment and let me know. I have access to a wide variety of experts in a lot of different spaces and circles so if I know what the burning question is but don’t know the answer, I can get someone who does!

I’m really looking forward to getting this blog moving and shaking! See you on the internet!

Back on the Vape Trail

E-Leaf iStick PowerLast week I decided I was done with smoking cigarettes for good. I no longer wanted to feel that heavy chest feeling in the morning. I no longer wanted to be wheezing when I went to bed. I no longer wanted to be out of breath walking up short flights of stairs. I was done with all of it.

I headed to a local vape shop and picked up some supplies, and am happy to say I haven’t smoked in a week now.

It’s super simple to get off cigarettes with this method and in my opinion, these devices do a lot less harm to your lungs than a cigarette does. I no longer wheeze, my smokers cough is nearly gone, not to mention I no longer smell like absolute dog shit!

I’m quite happy with the decision and where I’m at. The next step would be to get off nicotine entirely, but I really do enjoy my vape / smoke throughout the day as a way to take a breather, so it will be much harder to stop entirely.

For now I am happy with the result over the course of a week, and I’ll continue to work hard on keeping off the smokes.


Best Buy Canada Nintendo Switch Confusion

After watching the Nintendo Switch event I knew I was going to be purchasing one so the following morning, I hopped on to BestBuy.ca and pre-ordered mine as soon as I could.

I messed up my original order by using my shipping address as my billing address and my billing address as my shipping address. After a couple of calls to Best Buy customer service, my order was corrected and good to go with one small problem…………………..

The launch date that Best Buy has for my order and for the Nintendo Switch is March 31st? This doesn’t make any sense as the console is launching on the 3rd of March.

I’ve reached out to Best Buy on Twitter to clarifiy.


I have read conflicting information saying that Best Buy made a mistake or they intend to launch it on the 31st. I will be sure to update this post with new information as soon as Best Buy responds.

 

***** UPDATE *****

BestBuy Canada didn’t respond to me at all on Twitter however they did send out a bulk email confirming the date is wrong on everyones preorders. See below.


Welcome 2017!

In 2016 we’ve seen a lot of bad and a lot of good.

People have passed on, wars have been waged, and yet a kindness has come out of all of the anger and hatred that the world seems to have for itself.

Personally 2016 has been an incredible time! I started an incredible job with fantastic co-workers and incredible support from our management. My small business HostingEh has grown incredibly with some of the most fantastic clients I could have possibly asked for.

I’ve watched my little girls get a little bit older and a little bit wiser, and I get to share it all with some of the most supportive and loving friends and family!

I got to visit Toronto and watch the new Pure Pwnage movie with the most kickass people I know! Got to meet some new people too such as my new drinking buddy from England Jerry!Friends at The Madison

For me 2016 has been incredible, and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store!

See you all in the New Year! Have a happy, healthy and joy filled end to 2016!
