Default UDPATE: GTS, Battle Tower, Super Contests, Underground Shinou!

UDPATE: GTS, Battle Tower, Super Contests, Underground Shinou!
-08/11/06-


Yahoo Japan's Pokemon page was updated today with the information revealed the latest issue of Coro Coro. However, the site revealed a few more details and showed new and clearer screenshots.

Global Trade System
The GTS (Global Trade Station) allows players to trade with anyone in the entire world. A nice feature with the GTS is that you'll be able to deposit all the Pokemon you want to trade, and set which Pokemon at what level and gender you'll accept the trade with. If the system finds someone in the world that matches your offer, then the trade is completed.

Battle Tower
The Battle Tower makes a return in Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. Located inside the Battle Tower is the Wi-Fi Battle Room. You will be challenged by seven opponents from the internet.

Pokemon Super Contests
The Pokemon Contests feature, which many of you are probably familiar in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, is back and is called the Pokemon Super Contest. The Pokemon Super Contests allows up to four people to participate and will have three stages. The first stage, Visual Judging, will allow you to use the stylus on the touch screen to dress up your Pokemon with various items. The second stage, Dance Judging, will put your Pokemon into a dance routine where you will be judged on coordination and rhythm. And the third stage, Performance Judging, you use your Pokemon's moves to impress the judges.

Instead of Pokeblocks, you will now use Pofins. You will still use berries to make Pofins, and you can make them at the Pofin Bakery.

Underground World of Shinou
The underground world of Shinou will feature a capture the flag game. Each player will have a flag in their secret base, and they must capture the opponent's flag and return it to their base to win. Players can set traps that will delay their opponent from reaching their flag. Another game in the underground world of Shinou is the feature to search for treasures in the underground.

This game is great! The trade system isn't what I thought, but good enough. And I'm sooooo excited about the contests.

No, Pofin sounds Japanese. What does it translate into?

Pofin is a bread like thing. It replaces the Pokeblocks.

Right, Pofin is the Japanese name. It doesn't translate into anything, it's a name they made for the bread that replaces the Pokeblocks.

That's just the Japanese name, we don't know if they will change it or keep the name for the English version.

@ LS:

@ Ryan: Okay, I think Pofins would be better to give to your Pokemon then colored blocks. Also, do you have to purchase the stuff for the Pokemon Contests, like crowns and capes and such?

Don't think there's any information on that specific detail yet.

There seems to be a good amount of items that you can make your Pokemon wear in the visual contest. For the so far pictures, you see crowns, little ribbons as accessories, bows for the head, and there's probably much more.

An improvement to the Pokemon games for the DS or any wireless system would be an updating program, which would probably allow you to download any new software that the Pokemon Company would make for the game. In other words, there wouldn't be such limited items for Contests and such.
