Nintendo notes that both titles will be compatible with all DS iteration, but "when played on the Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL systems, players can use the games’ new Xtransceiver device to engage in video chat with others after exchanging Friend Codes. Up to four players can use the Xtransceiver via a local wireless connection, and two players can experience the feature online via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service (broadband Internet access required)." When played on an original Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite unit, players will be restricted to the voice chat functionality due to the lack of a camera. All players can exchange written messages using the touch screen.

The individual  Pokémon Black Version and  Pokémon White Version games will launch on March 6, and are now available for pre-order from major retailers throughout North America for a suggested retail price of $34.99 each. A deposit may be required for pre-orders. See individual retailers for details.

The individual Pokemon Black version and Pokemon White version games will launch on March 6, and is set to introduce a new set of changes to the Pokemon formula with more than 150 never-before-seen Pokemons that players can catch, train and battle as they progress through the game. Both games are now available for pre-order from major retailers throughout the country for a suggested retail price of US$ 34.99 each. Consumers who purchase either of the new games between launch and April 10 will be able to receive a special Liberty Pass via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required), which will enable them to catch the never-before-seen Mythical Pokemon Victini.

 

Victini or the Victory Pokémon will be the first Pokémon that's Psychic- and Fire-type and cannot be obtained through normal game play. "It is said that Victini creates an unlimited supply of energy, which it shares with others," say Nintendo. "This energy source may be the secret to how it brings about victories. Victini's unique and exclusive Victory Star ability not only increases its own accuracy in battle, but also boosts the accuracy of all a player's Pokémon in battle. Victini is a must-have in any Pokémon battle, and is especially useful in Triple Battles," which will debut in the upcoming title.
