POKÉMON: DP BATTLE DIMENSION NOW AVAILABLE FOR FREE AT NINTENDO ZONE AND THE CLOUD HOTSPOTS

7th May 2013 Pokémon fans will be as happy as Happiny to know that they can now catch all of the episodes from Pokémon : DP Battle Dimension on Nintendo Zone and at The Cloud Hotspots across the UK and Europe. Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to enjoy all 52 episodes of the series originally aired in 2008 which should keep them entertained in an exciting year for Pokémon fans.

Catch up with Ash Ketchum in Pokémon: DP Battle Dimension as he continues his adventure across Sinnoh with his best friends Pikachu, Dawn and Brock, meeting new Pokémon, new friends and new villains.  Pokémon of all shapes and sizes appear in this series – with a mix of favourites from seasons gone by and those making their animated series debuts, there is no better place to enjoy watching Pokémon in action! While Ash and his friends will encounter many challenges including Contests and Battles, none can compare to those he will face at the menacing Hallowed Tower and Mt. Coronet.  

It’s never been so easy to access Pokémon on the move as Nintendo 3DS consoles automatically connect to the internet whenever they enter one of over 16,000 locations or venues covered by The Cloud's service – such as Pizza Express, Pret a Manger, Greggs, Wetherspoons and Punch Taverns.

There is no need to worry about any complicated set-up because just being at a Cloud Hotspot or Nintendo Zone is enough to go online with Nintendo 3DS. When you are near to a compatible area – all of which can be found using Nintendo’s handy Hotspot finder - the Nintendo Zone icon will blink to notify you and the Pokémon series will be available to stream.

As well as allowing you to watch your favourite Pokémon episodes, Nintendo Zone also enables gamers on the go to browse the internet, compete with other gamers online, download movie trailers, access Nintendo eShop and receive software updates.

Episodes from Pokémon: DP Battle Dimension are available now via Nintendo Zone Hotspots across the UK.
