Press Release

Check out the newest addition to Pokémon Black and White's Dream World - and nab yourself an exclusive IGN Croagunk while you're at it.

As any good Pokémon Master knows, you simply must catch 'em all. That includes the very special Croagunk that IGN is teaming up with The Pokémon Company to distribute, starting tomorrow. This marks the very first time Pokémon has partnered with a video game site to offer up a Pokémon character distribution, so don't miss it! This Croagunk is notable because it knows the move Poison Jab and has the hidden ability Poison Touch.

All you have to do is visit the promotions section of the Pokémon Global Link. Once you're there, just enter the password and follow the instructions. The password is... a secret. For now. Check back tomorrow for the password reveal so you can claim your Croagunk and be the very best. And remember - you need to have a copy of Pokémon Black and/or Pokémon White to participate, and register your copy's Game Sync ID at the Pokémon Global Link website. You'll also need to have gotten the C-Gear in your game.

Show no mercy, Croagunk!

This special giveaway is to celebrate the launch of the brand new Rugged Mountain area in the Pokémon Dream World. The Pokémon Dream World is found at the Pokémon Global Link website, the same place you need to go to claim your Croagunk. There you can tuck a Pokémon into bed and explore this new area to befriend various Ground, Fighting and Fire-type Pokémon not found in the game.

These Pokémon include Spinda (which has the hidden ability Contrary and the special move Superpower), Torkoal (which has the hidden ability Shell Armor) and Rhyhorn (which has the hidden ability Reckless). There are many more Ground, Fighting and Fire-type Pokémon in the Rugged Mountain area, too. After befriending these Pokémon in the Dream World, players can transfer them into their games.

Go for a wild ride with Sableye.

While in the Dream World, you can also play a new mini-game that has you collecting gems with Sableye. The game has players drawing symbols with their stylus to guide Sableye from one portion of a track to another as the monster zooms through a rollercoaster-like game to collect the gems and access hidden areas. Collecting gems helps players befriend the Pokémon they meet just before the game begins. Check out the exclusive video below for a sneak peak.

The Rugged Mountain area will be available starting Wednesday, November 16. Stay tuned to IGN for all things Pokémon, and don't forget to check back tomorrow as we reveal the password needed to access your special IGN Croagunk.
