Instead of giving us some Pokémon Bank news, Nintendo announced upcoming plans for online competition battling. As long as you register your game on the Pokémon Global Link you’ll be able to enter. It all begins on February 21, so there’s still time to get yourself entered. There isn’t much information out at the moment, but starting January 31, you can visit the PGL site to get the details. This is only a beta competition which might lead to future worldwide online competitions as long as everything goes smoothly. You can read what information they have now on the Pokémon website; looks as if only Kalos region Pokémon are permitted.
