Update: Nintendo has confirmed Global Link will be released this week on April 13th. "For the first time ever, a Pokémon™ video game incorporates dynamic, customizable, Web-only content and online options that make it even easier to communicate with fellow Pokémon Trainers anytime, anywhere. "
Pokemon Black and White Global Link apparently has a release date. It looks like the online service will launch on April 13. It was originally set to be released in March but was delayed due to the earthquakes in Japan. A story confirming the launch appeared on Pokemon.com but was deleted later. As a PokeBeliever I think it's still safe to say we'll be able to connect to Global Link next Wednesday but we'll post more details as they become available.
Here's the original post that appeared on Pokemon.com:
Visit the Pokémon Dream World, track your stats in the Global Battle Union, and much more, starting April 13!
The Pokémon Global Link is a new online service for Pokémon fans around the world! Starting April 13, you’ll be able to connect your copy of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version to the Pokémon Global Link for lots of fun activities.
Tuck in a Pokémon in your game and it will appear in the Pokémon Dream World, where you can befriend Pokémon, grow Berries, and collect items—and bring them all back to your game! Then check out the Global Battle Union, the best place to keep track of your online battle stats.
The Pokémon Global Link is completely free! All you’ll need is a Pokémon Trainer Club account that you can get right now at Pokemon.com.
