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)


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.

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)
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.

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)

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)
