Oha Suta (おはスタ) has revealed a new feature for Pokémon Black and White (ポケットモンスター ブラック・ホワイト) called the PokéShifter (ポケシフター). The feature allows players of the previous games to transfer their Pokémon into Pokémon Black and White using the feature. It requires two DS capable devices to transfer the Pokémon. Like the previous 4th Generation PalPark (パルパーク), Pokémon are not immediately transferred into the players box. The PokéShifter features what appears to be a mini game with a timer that players must play in order to recapture their transferred Pokémon.
