Wow, I am really behind on the news front – sorry. I’ve been very busy, and ill and very busy again… not neccessarily in that order.
Ok, first up, if you didnt know already, the Dream World Eeveelutions are available now. If you played the special game on pokemon.com that was available for a limited time and managed to link a befriended Eeveelution to your Trainer ID account, you can now claim this Eeveelution to download to your black or white game. Head on over to the Global Link and log in, then head to the promotions section. Click on the Eeveelution promotion and then the Submit button – if you’ve done everything right with the mini-game, you’ll head to a special section of the Island of dreams where clicking on the shaking section will reveal your special Eeveelution – the next time you sync up your Game cart to allow things from the Dream World back to your game, this Eeveelution will head there too. For more details on the dream world and how to recive your pokemon from the dream world in your Black/White game, head to our guide on the Global Link, which can be found hotlinked on the left. Be quick though, the Eeveelution promotion will only last until July 19th, if you dont claim your Pokemon by then, you wont be getting your hands on it ever
Thankfully not a lot of news has been released while i’ve been on hiatus – but the Japanese Movie Giveaway has been given more details. While Pre-ordering your tickets will get you a Victini, the pokemon you get for actually seeing the movie itself actually depends on your game. Black players can get Zekrom while White players will be able to get Reshiram. Since this is the other legendary beast that you capture normally during your game, this will allow all those japanese players to complete the set.
And now for the latest, and in my opinion greatest news from the Pokemon camp. On Monday evening the 6th of June for the US and Tuesday Morning the 7th June for the UK/Europe, an update for the Nintendo 3DS will be made available, allowing the Internet Explorer to be used along with giving us access to the new eShop. One of the first programs being made available will be a Pokedex ‘app’ that will not only allow you to view stats, move lists, breeding groups and other usefull information on all Unova Dex Pokemon, but allow you to see all these pokemon in Full 3D, Take pictures in both Pre-rendered backgrounds and in real life (with the use of Augmented Reality). And best of all, this Pokedex will be completly free!
But of course, it would be too easy just to give you details on all 156 pokemon straight away from the get go, so like any pokemon trainer your going to have to work for your completed pokedex. You start of with 16 profiles unlocked. Each day you can use the Spotpass (by connecting to Wi-Fi) to download 3 random profiles. You can also trade profiles with friends (although street pass would be awesome for this, I’ve been reading reports that this doesnt have Street pass capability and you can only trade with people via wireless). QR codes (you know, those square barcode things) can be scanned into the game to give you access to stickers that get placed in a sticker album. Having these stickers greatly increasses your chances of getting that pokemon randomly via Spotpass. Considering this little program is free, it is a must for all 3DS owning Pokemon Fans
Thankfully that’s all the news I’ve missed, and I promise to be more on top of things from now on – we’ll bring you more news when we learn it
