Review Excerpt: Good news for Pokemon fans: two versions of Pokémon for Nintendo DS, with backward compatibility with previous Pokémon games. Our seasoned players gave them both a solid thumbs up. Both new versions (White 2 and Black 2) will have a new sharing feature called Join Avenue. Anyone with whom a player has interacted through wireless tag mode, trading or battling can open shops in Join Avenue and sell items not found elsewhere in the game. There are several different types of shops, including 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 avenue is. Other features include: Memory Link — 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 Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version during the past two years. They’ll also be able to capture special Pokémon.
