Name origin

Isn't "Entralink" some kind of company name already? And what the heck is it supposed to mean, anyway? I thought localisation was to make things easier to understand. PLA 09:12, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

It seems that it is a company, but so is ExcaDrill. I don't know where entra- comes from, but this is a forums discussion. --SnorlaxMonster 09:18, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
I see. I thought place names and pokemon names would be treated the same. Fair enough. PLA 09:25, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
I guess you could include a name origin section, but I find it better to discuss name origins on the forums, then add it when it's agreed on. If someone has a suggestion for "entra-", you could probably put it here. --SnorlaxMonster 09:30, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Good point. My best guess is because it's in the middle of the region, but it's a bit of a stretch. PLA 09:32, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
Well the Hilink contains the 'Hairu Tree', where 'hairu' can mean to enter, ('deru' in Deru Sphere is respectively, exit) so I guess it got simplified from that. Bluesun 17:01, 20 January 2011 (UTC)

Entree

Does anyone have anymore information on the Entree, e.g. the levels pass powers are unlocked at, max lvl, etc. ?Inuichi 05:47, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

Entralink draws inspiration from the Tokyo Imperial Palace.

Question

The article doesn't explain how you connect with others in entralink. Me and my friend went to the entralink, both at the same time, when we stand on the bridges connecting worlds it keeps saying that it searches for other worlds. then we tried to connect when one of us stood in the entree forest, while the other one stood on the bridge, when we did that, it said connecting to friends world, please wait a moment, but it stopped trying to connect after a moment.

We would really want to know how to do it, as our white forests aren't that big. ♢ DeadUniverse Hello! ♢ 14:08, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

I actually did this today. One of you has to be in the normal world, at one of the Cities/Towns or Routes surrounding the Enralink. The other player must go into the Entralink to connect and enter the other player's world. --SnorlaxMonster 14:21, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

I have a question about this as well, actually. I've read something that seemed to suggest that a player of Black Version could catch Pokémon from White Forest if they did the Entralink with White Version. But a)I haven't been able to find any wild Pokemon in the grass while doing a mission in another world and b)I don't think there's a way to go into another player's world except during a mission. None of the resources I use (mainly Serebii and Bulbapedia) shed any light on the subject. Is there a way to encounter wild Pokémon in another world, or am I mistaken? --AndyPKMN (talk) 18:10, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

You can't catch Pokémon in someone else's world. Also, you don't have to be in a mission to visit someone else's world, after having done the first mission you can tap the hexagons to warp straight after entering their world. There does seem to be a rough time limit of five minutes though. Bluesun 21:05, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Follow up question to this. A very old post on another site said that both players had to have visited 6 cities before they can connect with entralink. I know that it doesn't have to be both players, but does it have to be for the person's world you're trying to connect to? (Come to think of it, requirement is strange since they introduce entralink to you early.) I'm asking since my friend can easily connect to my entralink (I'm at post game) but when I try to connect to his, the bridge is forever searching and he is only in the second city. Goddessofevil9 15:15, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
To be visited, you must be in the hexagon, which begins at Nimbasa, the fourth gym city. This is because all the missions take place in the hexagon, for example you can't find the player to offer them an item if they're not in a visitable area. To visit someone else though you need only have the C-Gear, as long as they fulfill the above. It's stated iirc by an NPC that Unova was built in the shape of a hexagon in order to use the mysterious powers of the Entree Forest. Bluesun 23:43, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Parallel Requirements (Possibly needs reformatting)

After collecting data from both games, I found Pass Powers whose level requirement is different in both games. The most obvious conflict is Capture Power. I found that it required White rather than Black Entralink levels. Another occured when I checked my Black version to find that Exp Point Power ↑↑ only required Lv 2 Black as opposed to the pre-existing requirement of 13. I figured that it might be from White if such a difference existed.

As well, Powers such as HP Restoring Power and Exp. Point Power in their first rank were given at the start. I think that they should be denoted as being available to start rather than looking incomplete. I'd request other people to help and sort out these requirements across the different versions. After realizing the differences, I've inserted the name of the version in brackets in which the requirement is sure to apply (from testing).

There should be 2 separate columns, one for white and one for black. I cannot sort them out myself because of ambiguity over which requirement was from which. Some requirements may even apply for both versions. But as of now, I don't know for sure. Galvantula 00:26, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

i'm playing white, so all my(the initial) requirements are from white. ---> AquaDragon 01:10, 14 April 2011 (UTC)

Deepest Clearing

What's known about it? How is a pokemon "moved to the Deepest Clearing", and what's the effect? PLA 08:16, 15 April 2011 (UTC)

You can either select "no" when the Pokémon asks to join your party, or run from a battle with one, and you will be given the option to send it to the Deepest Clearing. Moving it there just seems to clear out the Forest Clearing. --SnorlaxMonster 11:00, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Entree Forest

Both of the Pokémon I have gotten from the Dream World and caught here were at level 10. Is this always the case? I can't seem to find information on this anywhere, and I feel it should be mentioned somewhere on the wiki. --AndyPKMN (talk) 14:33, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Staravia's Level 14, Seaking's Level 33. The event Mamoswine was Level 34 and the event Arceus was Level 100, so no, it's not set. Blazios 15:16, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
Or to be more precise, each Pokémon's level is set, just set seperately. Each Pokémon just has a different level in the data, no lower than 10, with those of Evolved Pokémon usually around the level they evolve at. As such you can't ever get, say, a Level 34 Dream World Seaking. Bluesun 15:43, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Question

How far in the game do you have to be to catch pokemon in the entree forest? I know that you have to beat the game to migrate from diamond, pearl, and platinum, and I was wondering if that is true with the entree forest pokemon as well or if you could catch them at any time. I went to my entree forest after a dream world visit and noticed a pokemon there I know in some games the pokemon can be there but you can't battle them until after you accomplish a certain task (ie: Regigigas in snowpoint city temple) or can you catch them at anytime after they appear even without having beat the game yet? Please let me know, thanks. - unsigned comment from Lordofninjas1 (talkcontribs)

You can catch any Pokemon in the Entree Forest as soon as you get the C-Gear. Soon everyone outside Korea'll even be able to have a Lv.100 Arceus with only one badge. Bluesun 05:35, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Question

I don't know if this was asked already or not, but is a Pokémon Black 2 game compatible with a normal Pokémon Black game for the Entralink missions? -Groudon 60 (talk) 22:27, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Nope, the version 2 games entralink can't interact with the version 1 entralink. I think this was answered somewhere but, I figured it would be useful to be sure. PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 06:06, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

funfest missions

should we make a section for funfest missions, or another article, or something? Deoxys80 (talk) 16:48, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Another Thing - I have noticed the absence of Multiple Funfest Missions, namely Mushroom Hide and Seek, Path to An Ace, Exhilarating Trading, Find Shining Ores, Memory Training, Push the Limit of Your Memory, Not-Found Lost Items, Search Hidden Grottoes, Quiet Hidden Grottoes, Where are Fluttering Hearts, Rock-Paper-Scissors Competition, and Take a Walk with Eggs. Also, there are multiple levels of the same missions, and I'm wondering if I'm overlooking something, or if it is just not there... I agree with the former statement of having Funfest missions on their own page, however. Hydreigon784 (talk) 00:39, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Black2 White2 Update

After testing it myself, it appears that the Entralink system of Black2 and White2 is an overhaul and as such these two games' entralinks cannot connect with those of Black or White. In other words, players of BW cannot access the world of BW2, nor can they participate in the funfest missions (alhtough I'm not certain of the second point). This should probably be added to the article. Lugia61617 (talk) 13:45, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Reorganization

With the release of B2W2, vast changes have been made to the Entralink. This page will need reorganization. The Funest Missions- are they exclusive to B2W2? What has been removed? --Abcboy (talk) 22:23, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

The Funfest missions are indeed exclusive to B2W2, and have replaced the missions from the original Black and White.
I've started on adding info about Funfest missions, but I think they'll need their own page. I don't even have all the ones on my own game (Black 2) unlocked, and there are ones which are exclusive to White 2 as well. Also, there are multiple levels of each mission, with varying target goals for each level. I've only added the Level 1 target goals, but ideally we should list all of them. In fact, the names of some of the missions change according to their level; for instance, "The 2 Lost Treasures" becomes "The 4 Lost Treasures" at level 2. Not to mention that the missions in which you can obtain items should list the items you can obtain. All in all, this page needs a lot of work, and by the time it's through it'll probably need to be split. --AndyPKMN (talk) 00:57, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
We definitely need to add a new page specifically for Funfest Missions as a) people can just search for 'Funfest Missions' and all the info can be easily found and b) we still need to list the goals for each level, items found within the mission, double bonus prize (prize for getting double the goal on the fourth level), the secret combination to receive the fourth levels, how to unlock the different Missions, the event-exclusive Missions and prizes for reaching the goal and how the extra Pass Orbs are awarded for going above the goal.- unsigned comment from TurtleLover1999 (talkcontribs)

New Pass Powers (B2W2)

Nice work getting the Funfest Missions started (I agree with Andy, they do need their own page). But, when I placed the article-wide incomplete warning (look at the edit history, I did that), I also wanted the new Pass Powers (e.g. Exploring Powers, which increase the chances of rustling grass and dust cloud appearance) listed in the Pass Powers section. Those need to go on the Pass Powers section as part of the reorganization of this page (it needs it. badly.) Mysterious Ivysaur (talk) 07:23, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Catch Rate in Entree Forest?

I think it needs to be mentioned that every kind of Poké Ball has a 100% catch rate in the Entree Forest. At least when I tried to catch my DW Tyrogue there, I used Poké Balls to catch it at least 20 times (to get an Adamant one), and all of the caught it on the first try. Krisi (talk) 00:33, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Tree Levels

I don't think the whole concept of the Entree growing is explained very clearly (or it might just be me). If you're playing Black or Black 2, how do you get White levels on your Entree? I might have missed it, but maybe there should be a section just about the Entree. Just a suggestion... KyuremsIceBlade (Talk) (Contribs) 00:21, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I believe you'd have to do a Funfest mission with someone who has White/White 2, and he/she initiates it. Berrenta (talk) 15:36, 10 February 2013 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. I saw that on the Black/White section, but I wasn't sure it applied to Black 2/White 2 also. KyuremsIceBlade (Talk) (Contribs) 16:19, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

What about how you get levels? I know that they are earned by completing missions, but there is no information as to how many points you need for each level. Kingsurskit (talk) 21:56, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Funfest Missions level 4?

If you go to the accept a funfest mission screen, then press select, down, down, down, up, up, up, up, select, it will unlock level FOUR missions. Shouldn't their requirments be listed in the table too? Every time you want to play them you have to enter the code every time. MrBananaMan212 (talk) 17:02, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Tried out the code and it seems to work. Will add when I can. Berrenta (talk) 17:11, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
