PokÃ©mon Gotta Catch’em All..
Players of PokÃ©mon video games have always enjoyed communicating with others, and the newest PokÃ©mon titles launching March 6th-PokÃ©mon Black Version and PokÃ©mon White Version- will make it even easier to interact with fellow PokÃ©mon Trainers from all over the world!Â The PokÃ©mon Global Link web site, launching this spring after the new PokÃ©mon video games hit shelves, will give players the ability to sync their game play from their Nintendo DS systems to PCs via the Internet, and access customizable web-only content, befriend additional PokÃ©mon, communicate with fellow PokÃ©mon Trainers, earn and view Worldwide Battle Ratings, and more. Â PokÃ©mon Global Link offers a seamless play experience across both platforms-activities players do online will be reflected in their Nintendo DS games.Â Players will log onto PokÃ©mon Global Link using their PokÃ©mon Trainer Club accounts, which can be easily obtained for free at www.pokemon.com.
PokÃ©mon Global Link features three main components that enhance the PokÃ©mon video game experience online.Â The PokÃ©mon Dream World features all-new ways to interact with PokÃ©mon in a customizable web-only setting, featuring mini games and scenarios that enable PokÃ©mon and items to be transferred back into the PokÃ©mon Black Version or PokÃ©mon White Version video game.Â The Global Battle Union allows players to keep track of their battle record against other players around the world and provides players a Worldwide Rating and an opportunity to compete in live events.Â PokÃ©mon Global Link will also house the PokÃ©mon Global Trade Station, launching later this year, giving players the ability to track PokÃ©mon trades all over the world.
For the first time, video game players will enjoy the world of PokÃ©mon online in the PokÃ©mon Dream World.Â This new area in the PokÃ©mon Global Link web site comes alive after you tuck a PokÃ©mon into bed using the Game Sync feature of PokÃ©mon Black Version or PokÃ©mon White Version.Â You can then enter that PokÃ©mon’s dream online.Â Inside the PokÃ©mon Dream World, players can customize their PokÃ©mon’s home, grow Berries, and befriend other PokÃ©mon by playing various mini games.Â Players can bring PokÃ©mon they’ve befriended and items they’ve found back into their copy of PokÃ©mon Black Version or PokÃ©mon White Version.Â PokÃ©mon transferred from the PokÃ©mon Dream World can even be trained for battle!Â PokÃ©mon Trainers will also be able to communicate and share items with other players exploring the PokÃ©mon Dream World.
After registering with PokÃ©mon Global Link, players will also gain access to the Rating Mode in the Global Battle Union.Â Players will be able to earn a Worldwide Rating, which is calculated based on a player’s battle score, and see where they stack up against PokÃ©mon Trainers from all over the world.Â Aside from bragging rights within the Global Battle Union, top-performing players may qualify for invitations to live regional and national tournaments in the PokÃ©mon Video Game Championship series for the opportunity to advance to the PokÃ©mon World Championships in San Diego, California, in August.
“PokÃ©mon Global Link will introduce brand-new ways to play PokÃ©mon that enhance what players love most about the games-battling, trading and collecting PokÃ©mon,” said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing for The PokÃ©mon Company International.Â “Giving players the ability to interact with PokÃ©mon and other PokÃ©mon Trainers online deepens the game’s play experience and connects players from all over the world like never before.”
