According to a report out of Nintendo, upcoming titles Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will introduce new ways for players to connect and get the most out of their games.

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 is another feature Nintendo is debuting within the two upcoming Pokémon games.  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 the previous editions of both versions 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.

Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 are expected for release in North America on October 7 for the Nintendo DS family of systems.
