What? The Pokémon Global Link Website is Evolving!

Posted by James Newton

Hum the music

Popular Pokémon destination Pokémon Global Link has just received a new lick of paint and brand new features, ahead of the release of Pokémon Black & White 2 later this year.

The site now includes a Global Trade Station for observing Pokémon trades and new statistics for you to pore over, such as which country is home to the strongest trainers or the most prolific cyclists. My Page has also been upgraded, letting you look at your own records more easily.

Elsewhere, the Icy Cave area has opened up in the Pokémon Dream World, letting you catch chilly Pokémon like Sneasel, Swinub and Spheal. You can also more easily control which area of the Dream World you visit based on the type of Pokémon you 'tuck in'; bed down an Ice-type for a bigger chance of reaching Icy Cave, for instance.

Fans who buy Pokémon Black & White 2 later this year will get access to an exclusive Dream World area where they can encounter and capture Pokémon from the Unova region.

This is all well and good, but sadly this announcement hasn't come on the best day: the Pokémon Global Link site goes down for maintenance on Tuesdays. You should be able to check out the new features tomorrow.


Unique Features Also Added for Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 Video Game Players

London, UK — 26thJune 2012 — The Pokémon Company International relaunched the Pokémon Global Link website today, delivering a fresh look and exciting new features for Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video game players to explore this summer. The updated website includes new player data in its Reports and My Page sections, plus a brand-new area to visit in the Pokémon Dream World. The Global Trade Station has also launched at the site, allowing players to observe Pokémon trades happening around the world.

On the Pokémon Global Link’s new Reports page, players can view and analyze previously unavailable Global Battle Union and Wi-Fi Competition information such as the most popular Pokémon used by top players. The Reports page will also track Ratings and Rankings for players all over the world who battle via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. And, in the page’s Game Sync World Records section, players can view how countries around the world rank in different game stats, including top cycling locations, top healing locations, top battling locations, and more. The new My Page section will make it easier to track your own game’s progress and statistics, including personal reports like Global Battle Union results, Global Trade Station trades, and more.

A brand-new area in the Pokémon Dream World has also arrived. Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video game players can now tuck in their favorite Pokémon and explore the new Icy Cave area. In the Icy Cave, players can meet Ice-type Pokémon such as Sneasel, Spheal, and Swinub, and bring them back into their copy of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. Also new to the Pokémon Dream World, players have more control over which Island of Dreams area they visit, based on the type of Pokémon they have tucked in. For instance, players can give themselves a better chance at arriving in the new Icy Cave area by tucking in an Ice-type Pokémon.

When the Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 video games launch this autumn, only players of the new titles will be able to meet Unova region Pokémon in the Pokémon Dream World and bring them back into their copy of the game. More Pokémon Global Link features for the Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 games will be announced later this year.

I forgot that site was still around, it was fun, for about a week, but it was really dull

Now you tell me. I've been tucking in my Musharna like usual and didn't get to go to Icy Cave on my first two connections at the updated Dream World, and now I have to wait until tomorrow (Wednesday) to try again. That's unusual for to miss such crucial information. I guess I'll tuck in Abomasnow, as I still need a Farfetch'd with Leaf Blade from Pleasant Forest.

@LordJumpMad Maybe most of the minigames aren't very fun, but they're worth it to collect so many Pokémon that are unavailable in Black/White and with their hidden Abilities, plus it's the only way to collect berries and some other rare items like extra evolution stones.

I collect so many Hidden Ability Pokemon to make eggs and give off to people.

Man, Serebii still hasn't reported this. Great job James. You beat one of the biggest Pokemon webistes by far.



BulbasaurusRex said:

@Xilef Well, they announced the reopening of the Dream World when it happened. They just left out the part about being able to influence to which area you go.



Shotgunryugan said:
