Well, you can win ONE Pokemon. But it is a special one.
Plus it is an annoying one to get otherwise, and all you have to do clear four levels of Breakout to do it.
While Pokemon Black and White launched earlier this month, one of the add-on services to the game, the Pokemon Global Link, is not yet live.
The Pokemon Global Link is the key online component of Pokemon Black and White that includes features like the Dream World, where you can interact with other players, the tracking service where you can see how your friends are doing in the game, the Global Battle Union, and other features. You can read all about it here.
However, it is not live yet.
It is supposed to go live this Wednesday, March 30th. However the earthquake in Japan has pushed that date back.
Other aspects of the launch are still going on it seems.
To use access all of the features of the Global Link when it goes live, you will need to create an account at the Pokemon Trainer’s Club.
The Pokemon Trainer’s Club has been around for a while now. It is an online social site with an obvious Pokemon theme. You can dress up your avatar and play flash games.
And they have just added a new flash game. It is, as the title of this post indicates, a version of Breakout. If you clear all four levels of the game, you get the option to take a Pokemon that is offered you. If you do not like the Pokemon, you can say no and try for another.
The Pokemon on offer are all evolutions of the Pokemon Eevee, some of which are quite a challenge to get.
If you win and select a Pokemon, that is the only one you will be able to take. But once the Pokemon Global Link goes live and you log in, you will be able to bring that Pokemon with you back into your copy of Black or White, if I read things right.
So far I have been offered the Jolteon evolution of Eevee, but I am holding out for a Glaceon.
