Pokédex 3D Pro will be available for Nintendo 3DS exclusively from the Nintendo eShop on Nov. 8 and is a perfect companion application for all Pokémon fans, while Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 introduce new ways for players to connect and get the most out of their games. Launching on Oct. 7, Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are made for the Nintendo DS family of systems, but are also playable in 2D on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.
New information includes the following:
Pokédex 3D Pro: The perfect companion application to Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, Pokédex 3D Pro is sold separately and launches in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS on Nov. 8. Players can learn all about their favorite Pokémon, as this enhanced and upgraded version includes detailed information about more than 640 Pokémon featured in the history of the Pokémon video game series. With the new Pokémon Challenge, players can test their Pokémon knowledge in a variety of quizzes. To ensure that players have access to the Pokédex that will aid them the most while playing Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, the original Pokédex 3D will no longer be available from the Nintendo eShop after Oct. 1.
Join Avenue: In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will also have the ability to explore a new area called Join Avenue. Join Avenue is populated by anyone with whom a player has interacted through wireless tag mode, trading or battling. These players will open shops in Join Avenue that sell rare items not found elsewhere in the game. There are several different types of shops that can be opened on Join Avenue, including ones that offer supplies or the ability to power up Pokémon. The rarity of items that can be purchased from these shops is determined by how populated a player's Join Avenue is.
Memory Link: By connecting Pokémon Black Version 2 or Pokémon White Version 2 with a previously played Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game, players will be able to see what happened to some of the characters from Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version during the past two years. They'll also be able to capture special Pokémon. The scenes players encounter in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will depend on how far they have progressed through Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. To use Memory Link, players must have either two systems from the Nintendo DS or Nintendo 3DS family, or broadband Internet access and a Pokémon Black Version game or Pokémon White Version game that has been synced to the Pokémon Global Link website.
Pokémon Dream Radar: Launching Oct. 7 exclusively on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, Pokémon Dream Radar is an entirely 2D experience that lets players catch Pokémon and items using augmented-reality technology by moving the Nintendo 3DS to aim and shoot Dream Clouds. Caught Pokémon and items from Pokémon Dream Radar can be transferred into Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2. The game lets players take on the role of an assistant to Professor Burnet, a scientist studying the Interdream Zone. The Pokémon that players catch in Pokémon Dream Radar may have hidden abilities that aren't available in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, and many of the items in the game cannot be found in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2.
