Pokémon Global was an online service run by The Pokémon Company, Nintendo, and Game Freak to service Pokémon players with additional game features from the Pokémon games.

Pokémon Global Trading Station

Pokémon Global Trading Station, or GTS, was a service that allowed users to read about Pokémon trading and it also features an online magazine "GTS Journal." It was announced on August 14, 2010, that GTS would close down on September 14, 2010, preparing for the launch of "Pokémon Global Link", the successor of GTS.

The key features were adapted into Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver. Using Wi-Fi, it allowed people from all over the world to trade their Pokémon by putting their Pokémon up on offer or finding an offer and accepting it. In Pokémon Diamond/Pearl, as well as Platinum, the GTS is located in Jubilife City, guarded by an NPC that allows you to enter only when you obtain the Oreburgh City Gym badge. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the GTS is located in Goldenrod City. In Black and White and its Versions 2, a station can be found inside every Pokémon Center.

In order to search for a Pokémon, it must already be registered in your Pokédex. This was to prevent one from using the GTS to complete their Pokédex.

Pokémon Global Link

Pokémon Global Link was an online multiplayer feature in Black and White, with additional services such as the Dream World.


Negotiations featured in Black and White is slightly different from the normal GTS; it used to use live trade, letting any Pokémon be traded, even if the player hadn't yet gotten the new Pokédex. It was highly popular, as all Pokémon can be traded, and the search was based on appearance.
