Pokémon Global Link Update Inbound

By Kevin on Jun 01 2012 06:19 PM
Get ready for a brand-new look, for the Pokémon Global Link! A friendly reminder from your friends at Nintendo Nerds...

From Tuesday, June 5th @ 3:00AM EST through Thursday, June 21st, the Pokémon Global Link will undergo a period of scheduled maintenance, while it receives a huge update. The update will give us added features and options, and become a better experience overall. During the scheduled maintenance period, all Pokémon Global Link services will be inaccessible, including Game Sync and Random Matchup Rating Mode battles, found in the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. With the new update, there are some important pieces of information that you should be aware of.

Berries you've collected inside the Dream World will 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. The good news, if you want to call it that, is at least one of each type of Berry will still remain in your Treasure Chest. At least now, if your Berries get absorbed, you're still able to plant more of them. While this may not seem "Berry" convenient, it's not a lose-lose situation for the Berry lovers. The 100-day countdown timer will begin before the maintenance period kicks off.

Also, if you have a Pokémon tucked in when the maintenance period begins, you won't be able to wake that Pokémon up until after the update is complete. So, if you have a tucked-in Pokémon that you can't go without for very long, be sure to wake it up. Otherwise, it'll be trapped in a two-week long dream. That actually sounds like it could be enjoyable, personally.

Lastly, the dates and times for the maintenance period are subject to change. I'll see everyone in a few weeks, after the new Dream World is LIVE!

I can not wait to see what is changed
I want to see more Berry patches, mini-games, and the ability to upload battle videos. Chris and I had a battle a while back, but there's no way to share the footage. How awesome would that be to share videos with friends, or anyone else that has a "link" to the video?
Yes! I hope that there are more mini-games as well and maybe more places to go? and i could care less about the berries i just want that vulpix with drought and that poliwag with drizzle!! (then i can finally demolish at least one of the subways!)
I just want to share something that I think is an excellent post by pkemon dungeon.


They specify the benefits of the pokemon ability prankster as found on sableye and volbeat in dream world only! I really wish someone had a DW sableye because I would be ecstatic.

Pokemon is about strategy and this post just shows one out of over one hundred pokemon abilities!
Hahah im gonna work on that sableye or volbeat for yah !
Woohoo! I haven't had a chance to check it out yet because I just found out, but the new-and-improved Pokemon Global Link is up and running! Check it out!
