Visit your friend’s Pokemon Black and White World!

14 Dec

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.

Pokemon Black and White gets Facetime!

14 Dec

To further “Americanize” the game it seems everyone gets..

..*dramatic Ophra pause*..

C-Gear

a free Apple iPhone with Facetime!!!

The Facetime key item is known as the “Live Caster” which works with your C-Gear (the latest in Poketch technology) to let up to 4 players video conference online (if they have a Nintendo DSi or DSi-XL and the camera function is not disabled). Presumably, players are allowed to just voice chat as well (for those of us who have yet to upgrade our older generation DS).

(Click Here for Live Caster demo!)

The new C-gear also has an Infrared option that allows players to quickly trade friend codes without the hassle of having to type in everyone else’s 10-digit friend code. There’s also a warp option (sure, why not?) to the High Link area where you can visit your friend’s game worlds. There are a couple extra features but we’ll find out more about those later.

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.

Pokemon HeartGold & SoulSilver

24 Sep

The remakes to the classics continue in this revisited adventure!

Already released in Japan and coming soon to the US!
Released on the 10th year anniversary of the original Gold & Silver games in japan and will be presumably released during the US’s 10th year aniversary. This is the one the fans have finally been waiting for! Can’t wait!

Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver

11 May

Its Official! I’ve heard about this since the beginning of the week and have been assuming it was this from the teasers but they confirmed this just yesterday that Nintendo is making a Gold/Silver Remake for the DS/i! 😀

HeartGold and SoulSilver will be released in Japan this fall, possibly on or near Nov. 21, the 10th anniversary of the original release of their namesakes. International releases will likely come in mid-2010. This is the one that took you into Joho with the PokeGear, Lugia/Ho-oh legendaries, Tododile/Cyndaquil/Chikorita starters, The First Game in the series that included the Shiny Pokemons (Starting with the Red Gyrados), and he only game that Linked you to the Past World Kanto 3 Years after the fall of Giovanni and a Broken Team Rocket tryng to rebuild. This was byfar one of the best games in the series and its about time they rebuild it.

Even better theyre doing it with the Diamond/Pearl engine so its going to be 10x better than the original graphic-wise. We’re assuming you’ll be able to trade with D/P/Pt considering the old ones you needed the time machine/pokepark to tranfer from the GBA slot but since these are both DS the WiFi should be compatible.

The Second Generation Pkmn will be available and this will prolly bridge the gap for DSi since old Pokemon Can’t be transfered from GBA if you dont have a damned GBA-slot. Not to meantion the original copies of Pokémon Gold and Silver typically lose the ability to save after a period of about seven years, due to the internal battery running dry (this is due to the constantly-running clock). However, the battery is replaceable with another one of the same kind (although replacing it will reset the game’s data).  Since the DS keeps it’s clock in the DS those of you who lost your saves can rejoice in knowing it wont happen again after you get bored for a month and turn your game on again. Keep in mind this game was released just before Y2K in 1999, so if you dug up your old Game Boy Color your Pokemon are more than likely lost – you gotta admit this has to spark SOME kinda rage in considering all the hours we spent.. lol

From a first look at the screenshot, you notice the player has his Chikorita walking besides him. My guess is they’re going to let the starter Pkmn walk alongside the trainer much like they did in Yellow Version with Pikachu following you around everywhere you went. Noclue what happens when you talk to it but you prolly get some kinda Happiness Meter or maybe random items it may have picked up. It’s still not certain if it’ll be following you for the whole game or just certain areas but we’ll know more as time progresses. You can also see the new Sprite for your redhaired rival Silver (who is supposivly Giovanni’s Son) peeking in throught the window for the Poke he’s planning to steal from Elm (which just so happens to be the exact opposite of what you picked).  Anyways not much else is known sofar aside from the details of the Original GSC games but I’ll post any new developments as they appear. *excited* 😀

Nintendo DSi Revealed

3 Oct

Rumours had been making their way around the internet this week about an upcoming DS announcement from Nintendo. With today’s Tokyo conference Nintendo put to rest all rumours by unveiling the Nintendo DSi. For those a little curious as to why the “i” is included, it’s simply because the DS now has an eye….. or what I like to call, a “camera”.
