Finally, about 2 weeks after the initial release date was delayed the Pokemon Global Link / Dreamworld is finally online! Check it out and link your Pokemon Black and White games at: http://en.pokemon-gl.com/
Pokemon Dream World was scheduled for lauch on March 30, 2011 but due to the current Tsunami/Nuclear Disaster in Japan (which appears to be the main hosting server for the site), it will not be launched until further notice.
The official US dream world site (http://en.pokemon-gl.com/) had this to say: “The Pokemon Global Link was scheduled to lauch on March 30, 2011. As a result of the earthquake in Japan and the need to conserve energy resources the lauch date has been temporarily delayed. When a new launch date is determined, it will be published here on the Pokemon Global Link. We apologize sincerly for any inconvenience caused by this delay.”
Hopefully the crisis in Japan will be resolved soon. Our hearts go out to them.
Only 4 more days until our new journey begins..
Pokemon Black and White English Versions will be Released Sunday, March 6th 2011
Holy cow! For TvT here’s what has got to be one of the most exciting mirror matchup builds around.
Click here for 2Fact 2Port Build Order
This play style is all about using Terran units but playing them as Zerg instead!
My absolute favorite build – If HuK’s most well known Protoss build is the Mothership Rush, mine has to be the Banshee Rush when I play Terran.

The match has just barley started, you just started gaining enough tier 1 units to send out and begin battle with your opponent, you mobilize your units and to your surprise when their halfway across the map you hear “BASE IS UNDER ATTACK!”… your sitting there wondering – wtf? You zoom your map back to find that half of your mineral gathering workers have vanished and hovering above them 2 little banshees are wreaking havoc. You rush back to base to take them out and they vanish in midair! WTF?! Their cloaked?! The match just started about 5 minuites ago and your out of minerals and workers to mine them. Theirs nothing else you can do and your tier 1s are now getting picked off one by one as more bashees decide to join in on the fight. You’ve just been Banshee Rushed… GG?
So my first build post discussion has to be the most epic of Protoss builds known to the Starcraft universe - The Mothership Rush!

The goal is basically the complete and utter surprise of the opponent during a huge, detection-necessary, micro-heavy rush. This is one of those All-in builds which leave you completly defenseless at the beginning. If it fails, you lose. If it succeeds you’ll more than likely win epically with the loudest nerdgasms from spectators and replay lovers.
It’s official! For all you frustrated Starcraft players who are tired of roaming the forums looking for ways to get yourself ranked into the Gold, Diamond, and Platinum leagues and are yet trying to grasp the metagame, your solution has been found - scbuilds.net is officially open for the public!
Every now and then I will be discussing selected build orders taken from the site here on the blog of various strategies for public discussion (hopefully with some youtube support as well).
Ofcorse theres no 3/4G technology in our latest version of the Pokemon world wannabe iPhone (we lost that in the Japanese gold/silver) but the new C-gear allows has a couple of wifi features including a …. (wait for it)…. Teleporter! (noclue but… I guess it makes sense if theres an Alakazam or something psychic that powers it.. Even so considering PC-boxes and the smaller scale warp tiles I guess it should work… hopefully with out us mutating into giant flys atleast)
Anyways it warps the player to the “High Link” located in the center of the region where they can link up with other nearby friends, catch certain Pokemon only attainable in the “High Link Forest” and where you can even venture into other nearby player’s Unova regions!
When visiting another player, you are shown using your multiplayer avatar in a monochrome version of Unova.
You can also accept missions to complete together in your friend’s game world. You can team up with your friends to do these missions but some missions also require you to face up against your friends and battle. There are Item missions, Rescue Missions and (ofcorse) Battle Missions (Who dosn’t want to become a Pokemon Trainer Hitman??).

This is as close to a Pokemon based Nintendo MMO as we’re probably gonna get for now so enjoy it!
Pokemon Black and White was released in Japan on September 18, 2010 and is expected to be released in North America in early Spring 2011.
