Nintendo has revealed more details in regards to the “Pokemon Global Link” for “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” According to a report from Nintendo Insider on Jan. 9, the publisher confirmed that the current version will end next week. As a result, support for “Pokemon Black,” “Pokemon Black Version 2,” “Pokemon White” and “Pokemon White Version 2” will be dropped by Jan. 14.

At the same time, Nintendo is going to launch the latest iteration of “Pokemon Global Link” that was built specifically for “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.” Players will be able to use the “PokeMiles” stats gained from walking around in the two handheld video games in order to take advantage of the “PokeMileage Club.” By joining the membership, they can play a mini-game called “Balloon Popping” in addition to receiving a 50 percent coupon for all boutiques.

The publisher also hinted that “some extra benefits may be available” for those who previously signed up for the “Pokemon Global Link” with the prior games. The accounts should carry over from the old version to the new one.

Although “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y” were released last year, Nintendo is planning to add more features to the two popular titles. In addition to the “Pokemon Global Link,” the company will be releasing the “Pokemon Bank” application sometime in the near future.
