Pokemon Black & White to have random online battles!


Here's a bit of exciting news for all you Pokemon fans. With the upcoming release of Pokemon White and Black, players will no longer have to know each other to play online. That's right, gone are the days of having to troll forums for other players, then painstakingly having to write down friend codes just to battle a stranger.

Now, thanks to a brand new online battle mode, players will be able to access a global terminal from their local Pokemon Center which will allow you to join a random online match -- the mode will then reportedly expand to worldwide play next Spring. Other upcoming features have yet to be detailed, however it seems that players may be able to share the pokedex and battle data online, though that is yet to be confirmed.

So there you have it, excited? Looking forward to playing this as soon as it's out? I sure as hell know I am.
