Below is some of the new information regarding the upcoming Pokémon Dream World and Pokémon Global Battle Union from the official site
At Play in the Pokémon Dream World!
Let Fennel Be Your Guide. Fennel is the creator of the Game Sync, the feature that lets your Pokémon visit the Pokémon Dream World. She'll guide you through your first steps in the Pokémon Dream World. To get the most out of the Pokémon Dream World, you'll need to register your copy of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version. But if you want to check out the Pokémon Dream World without registering, Fennel will let you borrow her Pokémon Munna.
When you first access the Pokémon Dream World, Fennel will appear to guide you through the steps to get started. You can try out the Pokémon Dream World even if you don't have a copy of one of the games. Explore the Pokémon Dream World with Fennel's Munna. You can then register your copy of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version and send your own Pokémon to the Pokémon Dream World.
Befriend Pokémon on the Island of Dreams!
From your home in the Pokémon Dream World, you can cross a bridge to reach the Island of Dreams. There are a number of interesting areas there that are inhabited by Pokémon from other regions. Take the rainbow-colored bridge from your home to the mysterious Island of Dreams. You can find items and encounter Pokémon here that you wouldn't encounter in the Unova region. Play games with the Pokémon you find on the Island of Dreams! Do well enough in the games, and the Pokémon you played with will become your friend. Visit the Tree of Dreams to have the Pokémon return to your game with you. On the Island of Dreams, you can explore the forest, the sea, and the sky. There are several different games for you to play with the Pokémon you'll meet. Try to befriend as many Pokémon as you can by doing well in their games!
Spruce Up Your Home!
You can spend the Berries you grow to improve the look of your home in the Pokémon Dream World. Trade Berries to buy new Décor items using the Dream Catalogue. Your room is pretty barren when you first arrive in the Pokémon Dream World. The more you play in the Pokémon Dream World, the more kinds of Décor items will become available to you.
Trade Items with Players!
Explore the Island of Dreams in the Pokémon Dream World to find items. Then, you can put these items and Berries you've grown on the Share Shelf in your home. When other players visit, they can exchange their items for ones on your Share Shelf. You can trade for different kinds of Berries and increase the variety of Berries you can grow! Look all around the Island of Dreams for items you can pick up. Place items you want to trade on your Share Shelf, or visit other people's homes and trade items from their shelves. Be sure to trade Berries you've grown with other players to increase the kinds of Berries you can grow!
Keep the Items You've Found
All of the items and Berries you'll find in the Pokémon Dream World can be brought into your Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game. Just put them in the Treasure Chest in your home, then transfer them to your game all at once. All of the Berries and items you've found will be stored in the Treasure Chest in your home. Use Game Sync to awaken your Pokémon and bring the items into your game. Speak to the boy at the entrance of the Entree Forest to receive all the items you sent.
