Japanese earthquake causes Pokemon delay

Having fun with Pokemon Black/White? I know that I sure am. So many new Pokemon to catch, 8 new badges to collect, even an exclusive city to explore. I think I will hold off on completing my final gym battle, however, because Nintendo today has announced that the Pokemon Global Link scheduled for launch March 30 has been put on hold due to last weeks earthquake in Japan.

Citing the need to conserve energy resources, a new date for the launch is unknown at this time. I’m sure most Pokemon fans can sympathize, and are doing what they can to help with the relief efforts.

When the service finally launches, I cannot wait to take my team of six and battle with the best Pokemanics the world has to offer! Don’t forget to add your friend code to our friend code list and get playing with your fellow Infendo readers and editors.

Has the delay affected your Pokemoning? Have you even noticed the services absence?
