2012 is a big year for Pokémon, as we’ve already seen the release of PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond for Wii, and are waiting patiently for the highly-anticipated Pokémon Black & White 2 for DS. Owners of the Nintendo 3DS will also be getting two new Pokémon titles for download on the Nintendo eShop, Pokédex 3D Pro and Pokémon Dream Radar. The last two games are made to enhance your Pokémon Black and White 2 experience, and will launch close to the release of these games. Continue reading for info on all 3 titles! -Greg Boe (admin)
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 Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS on 8th November. Players can learn all about their favourite 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 be removed from Nintendo eShop on 11th October.
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. This area is populated with anyone that a player has interacted with via wireless Tag Mode, trading or battling. These players will open shops in Join Avenue that sell rare items not found anywhere else in the game. There are several different types of shops that can be opened on Join Avenue, including those focusing on supplies, powering-up Pokémon and more. 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, capture special Pokémon, and more. 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. Use of Memory Link requires either two systems from the Nintendo DS or Nintendo 3DS family or broadband Internet access.
Pokémon Dream Radar: Launching exclusively on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS on 12th October Pokémon Dream Radar is an entirely 2D experience that lets players catch Pokémon and items using Augmented Reality technology by moving the Nintendo 3DS system to aim and shoot Dream Clouds. Caught Pokémon and items from Pokémon Dream Radar can be transferred to 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 not 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.
