Get ready to experience a new element to the world of Pokémon with Pokémon Link - a slide action puzzle adventure made exclusively for the Nintendo DS. The game features over 380 characters from the Pokémon video game series. Gotta catch 'em all!

In Pokémon Link, gamers must line up four of their favourite Pokémon icons in a row as they drop onto the game screen. With the use of the Nintendo DS stylus and touch screen, players must move the icons horizontally or vertically to join up four of the same type. Once a line is made 'Link Chance' occurs and the icons vanish from the screen and collected in the players 'Link List'. By moving Pokémon into certain formations, players can achieve higher scores with a 'chain reaction' where icons fall into cleared spaces creating further 'Links'.

As well as the sliding puzzle mode, there is also an adventure mode. Players must guide a secret agent named Lucy Fleetfoot through a mission to rescue stolen Pokémon from an evil organisation known as 'Phobos Battalion'. In this mode, players will encounter Pokémon of all types from every previously released Pokémon game.

The Nintendo DS wireless functionality gives players a chance to do battle against friends in Link Battle Mode, or join forces with them in Pair Link Mode in an attempt to beat the game's high score in a co-op. For Pokémon fans, rare characters are more likely to appear in multiplayer modes. Pokémon Link also features an Espionage Mode, where players can make an 'Agent Card' with their nickname and message. When passing another DS in Espionage Mode the agent cards can be swapped. Collecting these cards also increases the chance of finding rare Pokémon.

With four different modes to enjoy, Pokémon Link will certainly offer something for everyone - from veteran Pokémon fans to gamers who have never experienced the pocket monster phenomenon.
