    From the wording of the announcement ("...will be able to carry over certain achievements and records [...] if they register for the new Pokémon Global Link using their existing user name.") it seems that way. However, it's been so long since I registered that I forget if it just automatically uses your Pokemon Trainer Club username when you do.
    Well that sucks! What if someone registers your username before you do? Do they get your achievements and records?
    Maybe they reserve that username to your Trainer Club account? I agree though, it seems like a poor way to set it up.

    I was expecting a new Global Link for gen VI but I was hoping they wouldn't shut down the old one for the Gen V games. This makes me sad cause I actually liked the Dream World. Though it did have it's problems, like being the only way to grow berries in the game so I hope the new one improves on the Gen V one. I do hope the new one's better, no 20 hour wait time would be nice , but I can understand them keeping that to slow down the amount of traffic on the site. Please no 1 hour time limit. I mean I can get a time limit , but 1 hour was way too short to do everything. I'd prefer it if there was no time limit, but maybe 2 hours or 2 would be better too. Another problem with this is if someone were buy a Gen V game used, then they wouldn't be able to access all the online features and meaning they could fully experience key parts of the games. If you need berries after this then you're pretty much screwed. I hope that there's some sort of berry growing system built in the game for Gen VI instead of having to grow berries online.

    Well time to go gather as much berries as I can from the Dream World and change my Pokedex/C gear skin before it closes.

    I kinda hoped they'd keep it around. I guess it's time for me to go back to the Dream World and collect all I can before it closes. havent connected B2/W2 but now I think I will connect Black 2 and get everything I can. I'll just have to pick my favorite C-gear skin as a final choice for my games when it does close.

    The Pokémon Global Link for Generation V games will be shutting down on Jan. 14, 2014. Services will be phased out starting after the October 2013 maintenance. It will be replaced by a Pokémon Global Link for Pokémon X and Y.

    Oh no :[ I actually liked Dream World a lot. They better let us keep our decorations in the house for XY.

    However it says it's going into maintenance in October 1-12 and closing in January 14, so I have a few more months to still play and transfer all my berries to W2.

    I was fearing this and not for the berries. I was fearing this for the Pokemon.

    All I want is a DW Golett or two and I've been slowly working towards that goal; guess I'll have to step it up a bit. But yeah, kinda figured that this would be happening. =/

    It uses your Trainer Club username....so as long as its associated with the same trainer club account I assume there's no problem.

    There's enough days left (160ish), it just depends on how often you can go on.

    Seems more like they're hyping up fear.
