Ninty Announce WiFi Enabled Wii Pokemon

Nintendo has confirmed that first Wii Pokemon game – Pokémon Battle Revolution – will also be the first Wii title to make use of Wi-Fi connectivity when it’s released across the U.S. on 25th June – no Euro date for the game is known at this time. Pokémon Battle Revolution is of course not a full fledged Pokemon release for the Wii and is instead just the latest update to the Colosseum/Stadium series of games.

Ninty revealed at the GDC that you’ll be able to wirelessly connect your DS to the Wii and use it as a controller… the same technique will also be used to import characters from the handheld Pokémon Diamond/Pearl games – making it much easier to do than it was in the N64/Cube editions of these tie-in titles.
