    Though Pokémon Black and White won't include the neat little Pokéwalker peripheral included in last year's HeartGold and SoulSilver, it won't be without alternative methods for monster collection. Nintendo has announced the Pokémon Global Link, a website launching this spring (shortly after the games' release) which will allow players to sync their save files to an online profile, giving them access to a wide range of tools with which to network with their fellow trainers.

    The site will let players keep track of their online battle statistics, assigning them a worldwide ranking which may grant them eligibility to participate in live regional, national and global tournaments. The site will also play host to mini-games which will let players collect Pokémon and items which they can transfer back to their Black and White cartridges. One such game lets players sync a monster from their game to the website, and explore their dreams online -- dreams that are ripe with transferable collectables. Pokémon Inception, then? Don't mind if we do.[/p]

    So we are becoming more like the pokemon and less like the trainer. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, anyone? Welcome to the Poktrix.

    I don't know about this, since I haven't played B/W yet, but is it possible to access the Global Link with a ROM?

    This is indeed old news but for the people who don't know about the Global Link it's new I guess.

    How's the anti-hack detection in this game?
