    Pokémon global link was originally due to launch on March 30th, but due to the recent Japanese natural disasters that date was postponed.
    The Global Link service will bring the Dream world to the recent Pokémon Black and White titles, where players can access the website and take part in mini-games to obtain rare pokémon with special abilities, or valuable items otherwise not obtainable in-game.

    Until the Global Link launches, you can also visit the pokemon.com website and play a simple brick-break game, the reward is a rare Dream World Eeveelution, with an ability not normally found in game.
    Playing the game, as well as the global link service requires a pokemon.com account.

    This is nice, but I still wonder why keep the international server offline based on what's going on in japan.

    Nope, it's confirmed to be the worldwide opening date of the PGL. They updated their website again.
