Pokémon Global Link Now Open!

By Kevin on Jun 20 2012 04:06 AM
It's time to start dreaming again, Pokémon fans!

The much anticipated, new and improved Pokémon Global Link (PGL) website is now in service. The website underwent maintenance on Tuesday, June 5th and wasn't scheduled to be completed until Thursday, June 21st at some point. The main PGL interface doesn't look too much different from before. The map is different and the navigation buttons for the various features are placed are in different locations. The same can be said for the Pokémon Dream World.

The Berry patch (garden), Share Shelf, House and Dream Bridge all look the same as before. Other than that, I haven't noticed anything that has significantly changed for the Pokémon Global Link website or the Pokémon Dream World. As stated in our Pokémon Global Link Update Inbound article, Berries will now only remain in your Treasure Chest for 100 days. After the 100-day period, the Tree of Dreams will begin absorbing your Berries and converting them to Dream Points. At least one of each type of Berry will still remain in your Treasure Chest, however. If your Berries get absorbed, you're still able to plant more of them.

I'm sure most of the changes that were done, have to do with functionality rather than aesthetics. Has anyone noticed anything significant that may have been changed, other than what we have already noted?

This is awesome. I will be on the lookout for any changes I see. So far I do like the face-lift it received. It gives you more information right from the front page instead of having to look elsewhere. That is a great thing.

I really like how "reports" is set up. It looks a lot better than ever before. So many statistics, so little time. Lol. I suggest checking that out as you might find it very interesting as I did. I will be checking out reports much more often now.
Ack, boy am i glad you posted this otherwise i wouldnt even know it was back in business! Maybe they changed the friend listing? Like maybe you can look up ur pal pad friends?

I checked and it seems there is a place for that but I do not think it is up and running at 100% as of yet because you didn't show there. No one did. Maybe when I sync with my game it will update that info. I am not sure. Unfortunately I can not wake up my pokemon until I am around wifi which will most likely be when I am home. :(
I havent gone on yet so maybe i have to log on in order for it to update and for me to pop up? :mushroom:
So I just found out some new info on Dream World for Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 games. This was taken right from the official website:

"Plus, which Pokémon you tuck in will affect your time in the Pokémon Dream World: when you go to the Island of Dreams, the location you explore will be determined by the tucked-in Pokémon's type."

This is very interesting... originally when DW was introduced I assumed that the pokemon you could meet was determined by the sleeping pokemon but that was not the case. I guess now they want to make it more of a challenge to find some pokemon. This is a good idea in my opinion. Now there is a reason to pick certain pokemon to put to sleep!

I am unsure if anyone else is aware of this but your Pokemon can actually gain levels if left sleeping for an extended period of time. I only found this out because of a friend who always has the same pokemon sleeping. He sent me a picture message to my mobile phone showing what his DS said when he awoke his Pokemon. Sure enough it said his ________ (I can not remember the Pokemon) gamed 1 level. I was shocked. This is almost like the PokeWalker of HeartGold and SoulSilver games.

That's interesting. I wonder what the criteria and rate of leveling is.
That I do not know. I wish I did because I was literally shocked.
