Meh, I didn't like the dream world that much when I tried it. It got old like the PokeWalker did.

I was hoping to be playing around with this until I could get a hold of my copy. Oh well, only 7 more days until I can play.

Their probably building up their servers, so it doesn't lag like 56k.

Well, I'm not missing anything. I'll have my game before then, and it'll give me some time to get in some level grinding before I get stuck into GblLnk.

Hmmm, does this mean that I can't trade with online friends that I know? Because I was planning on doing that with people during next week...

March 30th?

The wait doesn't seem too long...
Wonder why people are complaining.
It's not even a whole months wait...

Now that the date has been announced, everyone and their mother is going to be waiting until 12am on March 30th for this time to come around.

It's really probable that the server is going to crash the first day a few times or be REALLY laggy.

Sorry to let everyone know, but this is from the Global Link Website:
"The Pokemon Global Link was scheduled to launch on March 30, 2011. As a result of the earthquake in Japan and the need to conserve energy resources, the launch date has been temporarily delayed. When a new launch date is determined, it will be published here on the Pokemon Global Link.We apologize sincerely for any inconvenience caused by this delay."
