asked Feb 13, 2021 by KKN (1,110 points)

Here is my code

import requests
r = requests.get('https://pokeapi.co/api/v2/pokemon/ditto')

But It just returns this* :

[Errno -2] Name or Service not known

*Of course, it returns a CRAP TON more errors, but this is the most important one (I think).

If you actually know what you are doing, plz help...

Thanks in Advance,

Online gdb doesn't allow connection to the internet from programs. Try trinket.io.
