Recently many users have been saying they cannot access Game Sync or Dream World due to certain issues. When attempting to access either, the user is met with Error Code 13204, an error code reserved for high traffic on the DW servers. However, the real cause of this problem was a Complete Pokedex Code made for Black and White. For whatever reason whenever this code is used it bars the user from being able to access the Dream World. Why this is no one knows at the moment. However, a fix was made recently. The following is how to fix the Error Code 13204 error:
1) Use the following code. This code completely erases your Pokedex. You will have seen 0 Pokemon and Caught 0 Pokemon.
Erase Pokedex [Select]:
2) After using the code, DO NOT attempt to access your Pokedex just yet. Since you've seen 0 Pokemon, the game will be unable to display the Pokedex correctly and will freeze if you access it at this point.
3) Go in to any tall grass and capture a Pokemon. It doesn't matter which one you capture. Just capture one.
4) After capturing a Pokemon, save your game. Once saved you should be able to access Game Sync and the Dream World without any issues.
Errors should not persist unless the Dream World is down for scheduled maintenance. In the event you continue to encounter the error, go back through and try the steps again.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO USE THE COMPLETE POKEDEX CODE! Doing so at ANY point in time will result in the return of Error Code 13204. For those of you who are wondering, this is the code you should NOT use:

Major thanks to DaDeforest from GBATemp for his input on the issue as well as testing this code.
Major thanks to Kaphotics for making the fix code in question.
So it won't break the game if you have pokemon that are not in your pokedex?
Hey guys, I think it's awesome to know you got a fix for this already, I've been trying for ages to access DW but didn't get any luck.
But I got a few questions... I use AR for DS/DS Lite, do the codes work only for ARDSi?
I tried the one for white and it didn't work at all... I checked it twice already and I entered it all correctly, and I even tried catching a pokemon too and it still didn't work.
Yeah I chose the one for White and it didn't work for me at all. D:
... LOL I am an idiot.
Thanks for pointing that out, it worked now.
I tried the code, and it said an error occurred and to turn off the game, I got scared that something bad might of happened, but I didn't save which was good, so my pokedex was still there. Are you sure this wont mess up your copy of the game?
How do you get pokemon you have caught to register in the pokedex?
the fixed pokedex (not the delete pokemon in pokedex) does not get rid of error. tested on White
as long as having zero pokemon in the pokedex dosnt effect game, im fine with not seeing ones i already caught
Can you use them online if they are not in your dex? also I just figured out that you can put them in the day-care and take them back to register them.
