    The Global Link service is now online.
    Instead of visiting http://www.pokemon-gl.com/pre/en.html you should visit http://en.pokemon-gl.com/

    From there you can register your pokemon.com account, obtain a Gamesync ID from your English, French, Italian, German or Spanish Pokemon Black or White version games.

    I personally already played a bit of dream world, I befriended a lickitung, got a passho berry, and also downloaded a new pokémon musical and a skin for my pokédex.

    The service hasn't officially launched yet, so some features may not be working properly, there may also be overload.

    The service has actually been launched, not announced to launch.
    It was supposed to launch tomorrow but it can be accessed right now. [​IMG]

    You can get into the dream world as soon as you beat the 1st gym and obtain the C-Gear, I believe.

    Trying to put my Deerly into dream World just now. Seems to be taking ages though, might be overloaded. Been sitting for 2 or 3 minutes now.
    Nvm success must just be slow...

    Not bothered to try it out now, but either overloaded or they are setting up things right now.

    The next few days things will be shakey though.

    What is the Global Link? Is it the GTS where you trade Pokemon or something else, and how do you access it? Sorry, I'm a noob

    I hope the wait was worth it, global link doesnt seem that special, just a bunch of mini games.

    There are benefits to it, in-game you can get rare pokémon with exclusive "dream world" abilities, and also special items otherwise not obtainable.

    http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/globallink.shtml -> list of global link features.

    The only ones that most people will be interested in are berry growing, dream world pokemons(pokemons with special ability which they normally dont have. example, Politoed with Drizzle).

    Retail Game?

    I have registered my game some minutes ago perfectly.

    It's probably your nickname.

    Interesting... my Japanese account for my Japanese Black works on here too.

    And my White USA has been set up. [​IMG]

    Playing from SCDSTWO, no issues.

    Well, if it doesnt work, you may want to try again tomorrow.
    Things arent stable yet.
