Pokémon Dream Radar

Recommended Posts

Announced at Nintendo Direct.

 

3DS owners can play Pokemon Black & White 2 via the system's backwards compatibility support. But those who want a full 3DS experience also have some related games and apps to look forward to.

 

As part of today's Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo a downloadable 3DS app that will make your Black & White 2 experience more enjoyable.

 

Pokemon AR Searcher is an AR shooting game. Pokemon that you catch in this app can be carried over to Black & White 2. Pokemon AR Searcher will be released through the e-Shop opposite Black & White 2 on June 23, priced ¥300.

Kind of a spiritual successor to Pokemon Snap. :hehe:

A DS game that can link with an eShop app!? :o

So a Pokémon B&W2 is like a quasi-3DS game then? :confused:

OH CRAP! I didn't even notice that! (seriously I should go have some breakfast now!) If the AR Searcher gives you the opportunity of catching every single Pokemon, that means that any Pokemon you catch could also be in B & W 2! so does that mean the 300 Pokemon in B & W 2 are until a certain point? e.g. complete the story etc then you now have access to the full library of Pokemon?

 

Even if that's not the case I still think it will be great that you can transfer Pokemon you catch in the AR Searcher and transfer them. it's only 300 Yen too!

Surely this is a odd way of cheating in terms of catching pokemon?

@Jamba, perhaps it won't be that easy. For one it should be harder to catch Pokemon in the AR searcher, and the transfer will probably be locked until a you accomplish certain conditions. Maybe the Pokemon's level's will also be very low when you catch them?

There could also be a transfer cap, you can only send a specific number of Pokemon. But that breeds other questions, whats the main point of the AR Searcher? Does this just reward those who purchase the AR Searcher?

 

too much contemplating. We'll wait and see.

This is no different to the inclusion of the PokéWalker or the Dream World. Providing different ways to get Pokémon that may already be in the game.

 

The Unova Dex in B2W2 was never going to be the only Pokémon within the game. It isn't in BW, and no regional dex has been like that since RS

This looks cool. Definitely cool enough to get me to purchase Pokemon White 2 in the future.

Pokemon Face Raiders?

 

Wait, can you capture Pokemon to transfer into B&W2? If so, that makes it a bit more interesting!

You certainly can :)

Like previous posters have stated, I think this eShop title really highlights how great a Pokemon Snap sequel could be on the 3DS.

Pokémon AR Searcher

The transfer method is done via direct access of the game on the 3DS. The game has to be in the 3DS's cartridge slot when doing the transfer.

You get recruited by Professor Burnett to explore the Dream Valley, the area the game is set between the Pokémon world and the Real World

This looks awfully familiar...

 

 

I'll probably get it if there's actually stuff to do other than scanning rooms and catching Pokemon since Invizimals had a story and a battle mode but since this game is only 300 yen it probably won't have any of that.

Sounds good, I'm all up for a narrative :D

 

But how can you not like the new name? It's got dreams and everything! :eek:

Because the new name blows.

I hope it's less frustrating to use than the Dream World, that was just unecessarily complicated.

 

Can they just stop this shit and give us Snap already!?

I think it being called Dream Radar is a good indication that the Pokémon we will get in it will have their Hidden Abilities

 

Though it is a bit annoying because the Japanese title was in English as it is

ポケモン ARサーチャー is literally Pokémon AR Searcher

Why do people continually want the old stuff. Why not accept new things. Stop looking at the past, look to the future!

Lol, you tell them Serebii! I'm looking forward to this & the pokedex pro. I can see myself spending quite some time on this.

To be fair though, Snap is kind of screaming out for a 3DS or Wii U sequel. The use of the gyro for 360 degree photo snapping and the addition of every Pokemon (no more size limitations!) is far too obvious...

 

Same goes for Pokemon TCG (AR enabled!)
