New Pokemon Black and White Information, and a Video!

The Global Link information has been released internationally. Here's the press release:

BELLEVUE, WA - January 27th, 2011 - Players of Pokémon™ video games have always enjoyed communicating with others, and the newest Pokémon titles launching March 6th-Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version- will make it even easier to interact with fellow Pokémon Trainers from all over the world! The Pokémon Global Link web site, launching this spring after the new Pokémon 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 Pokémon, communicate with fellow Pokémon Trainers, earn and view Worldwide Battle Ratings, and more. Pokémon Global Link offers a seamless play experience across both platforms-activities players do online will be reflected in their Nintendo DS games. Players will log onto Pokémon Global Link using their Pokémon Trainer Club accounts, which can be easily obtained for free at www.pokemon.com.

Pokémon Global Link features three main components that enhance the Pokémon video game experience online. The Pokémon Dream World features all-new ways to interact with Pokémon in a customizable web-only setting, featuring mini games and scenarios that enable Pokémon and items to be transferred back into the Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version video game. 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. Pokémon Global Link will also house the Pokémon Global Trade Station, launching later this year, giving players the ability to track Pokémon trades all over the world.

For the first time, video game players will enjoy the world of Pokémon online in the Pokémon Dream World. This new area in the Pokémon Global Link web site comes alive after you tuck a Pokémon into bed using the Game Sync feature of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. You can then enter that Pokémon's dream online. Inside the Pokémon Dream World, players can customize their Pokémon's home, grow Berries, and befriend other Pokémon by playing various mini games. Players can bring Pokémon they've befriended and items they've found back into their copy of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. Pokémon transferred from the Pokémon Dream World can even be trained for battle! Pokémon Trainers will also be able to communicate and share items with other players exploring the Pokémon Dream World.

After registering with Pokémon Global Link, players will also gain access to the Rating Mode in the Global Battle Union. 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 Pokémon Trainers from all over the world. Aside from bragging rights within the Global Battle Union, top-performing players may qualify for invitations to live regional and national tournaments in the Pokémon Video Game Championship series for the opportunity to advance to the Pokémon World Championships in San Diego, California, in August.

"Pokémon Global Link will introduce brand-new ways to play Pokémon that enhance what players love most about the games-battling, trading and collecting Pokémon," said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. "Giving players the ability to interact with Pokémon and other Pokémon Trainers online deepens the game's play experience and connects players from all over the world like never before."
Sadly, the Dream World will not be available when the Global Link is first launched, to stop the servers from being clogged like what happened in the Japanese release.
