The High Link

The High Link is a new feature within Pokémon Black & White which allows you to connect to your friends and walk around the various parts of Unova. This feature is done over local wireless. This mode is not connectable via the Pokémon Centres but by tapping High Link in the Wireless option of the C Gear. Here, when you're hosting the High Link, everything looks normal. However, when you're the one joining somebody else's High Link, you enter a version of Unova that is in monochrome and appear as the multiplayer avatar of your game character.

In the High Link, you can walk around most areas and find your friend. You also get to find numerous support missions for you to complete to get prizes. You can team up with your friends to do these missions and other missions require you to face up against your friends.
It is currently unknown how many missions there are to be able to use or any other extra features brought in.

When six missions have taken place, the High Link host switches so they are the ones doing the missions and you're the recipient. If you fail the mission, the contents change.

High Link Forest

In the High Link area, to the north is a forest. In this forest, you will find three different, seemingly empty areas. In these areas, you wil llater find any and all Pokémon who have decided to join you from the Dream World. If you interact with them, you can challenge them and capture them. This is done with the special Dream Balls which appear in your bag. They guarantee capture.
