Global Link was one of my favorite features in the Unova games, mostly due to the Dream World, so the news from the start of the month that the Unova Global Link will go through a phased shut-down actually upsets me. I'm surprised and bothered by this development. Unova pokemon game players will no longer be able to use the Dream World feature as early as this October! Basically, in short, they're shutting down the features people really enjoyed (Game Sync, customizations, Dream World) starting with the Dream World in October 2013. When the site goes back up (after January 2014), it would only be useful/accessible to users of the Pokemon X & Y games.
