Nintendo gave the official release date for the Pokédex 3D Pro app for the Nintendo 3DS in North America and it is a month after the Pokémon Black and White 2 launch.
Pokédex 3D Pro is the new companion app that will replace the original Pokédex 3D app released on Nintendo’s eShop last year. Players can use it to learn about the different Pokemon available in the game as it includes detailed information about more than 640 of the pocket monsters that have been around since the beginning. There’s also a Pokemon Challenge mode where players are quizzed to test their Pokemon knowledge.
Nintendo has not announced a price for the Pokédex 3D Pro app yet. It is already out in Japan where it costs 1,500 yen or about $19 USD.
The other Pokemon 3DS app, Pokémon Dream Radar, will be available on the Nintendo eShop on October 7 alongside the release of Black and White 2.
Nintendo also released details on two other Pokemon Black and White 2 features – Join Avenue and Memory Link.
Join Avenue: In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, players will also have the ability to explore a new area called Join Avenue. Join Avenue is populated by anyone with whom a player has interacted through wireless tag mode, trading or battling. These players will open shops in Join Avenue that sell rare items not found elsewhere in the game. There are several different types of shops that can be opened on Join Avenue, including ones that offer supplies or the ability to power up Pokémon. The rarity of items that can be purchased from these shops is determined by how populated a player’s Join Avenue is.
Memory Link: By connecting Pokémon Black Version 2 or Pokémon White Version 2 with a previously played Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game, players will be able to see what happened to some of the characters from Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version during the past two years. They’ll also be able to capture special Pokémon.The scenes players encounter in Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will depend on how far they have progressed through Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. To use Memory Link, players must have either two systems from the Nintendo DS or Nintendo 3DS family, or broadband Internet access and a Pokémon Black Version game or Pokémon White Version game that has been synced to the Pokémon Global Link website.
