The first three generations of Pokémon are covered in the closed-source online fight simulator Pokémon NetBattle, which Asians created. NetBattle Supremacy, its sequel, provided more features and permitted the users to play with the fourth-gen Pokémon. 

The players may put up a team of Pokémon from the first three generations to compete against one another for battles. 

Since Pokémon NetBattle traffic needs to pass through your device’s firewall, you are required to set up a rule for allowing traffic on its port, which is 30000 for both TCP and UDP.

You may set up your router to permit access to the ports of Pokémon NetBattle by following the steps shown below.

A secure way to open all ports

To most people, port forwarding is quite a demanding task. For starters, every router has a different console, which often makes it difficult to navigate to specific settings.

Secondly, you won’t always be able to open ports on your router if your ISP restricts the ports. Yes, you heard that right! ISPs are notorious for blocking ports due to security reasons. If ISP isn’t the reason behind a blocked port, then perhaps it could be your operating system’s firewall.

Well, you can make all these problems go away and enjoy smooth online gaming on all your desired systems with PureVPN’s Port Forwarding add-on. Through the Port Forwarding add-on, you can allow all ports, disallow all ports, and allow specific ports.
