Pokemon Black and White; stepping up in 2011

How does catching all them little Pokémon get more addictive? Take a look

With the March 6th of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version quickly approaching not only will gamers get a new entry in the classic franchises RPG formula but they’ll get an easier way to play online with the Pokémon Global Link web site. What’s the deal, what do gamers get on the site set to launch soon after the release of Black and White?
  • Gamers will sync their gameplay from the DS to PC allowing for access to customizable web-only content 
  • Ability to friend additional Pokémon 
  • Communicate with fellow Pokémon Trainers 
  • Earn and view Worldwide Battle Ratings 
  • And of course the perquisite ‘more’
Access will be gained using a Pokémon Trainer Club account. This gets the franchise closer to what’s at the heart of Pokémon, not catching but battling and doing so against real trainers. This is not limiting gamers to friends and those close enough to share a cart but rather a truly unique way to get online, get ranked and even, potentially, invited to regional, national and global tournaments. It’s a truly outstanding experience that removes so many borders from gamers looking to compete without travel.

So gamers get a new Pokémon video game and (finally) an easy way to battle online with DS data but what else? Why else should gamers get geeked for Pokémon in 2011? Ask and ye shall receive.
  • New Movie; Pokémon-Zoroark: Master of Illusions – Set to premier on Cartoon Network on February 5th at 7:00 P.M 
  • New Manga based on Movie from Viz 
  • New TCG Expansion Black & White 
  • Black & White Mall Tour 
  • New merchandise and toys
So yeah, there’s a lot to get excited about and very early in the year. It’s going to be great to be a Pokémon gamer, collector and fan in 2011.
