New Pokemon Box ArtNintendo has released details that the new Pokemon Pearl and Diamond game will have the ability for you to talk to your opponents while battling, in the waiting room, after the battle, and just about any time while you are on Wi-Fi. But in order to talk you need your friend’s Friend Code and they need yours.

This Pokemon game is the first to have all the previous 380 Pokemon from the past PkMn games, plus 100 new Pokemon which brings the total count up to 480 Pokemon. And the cool part? If you own the old GBA Pokemon games, you can import those Pokemon that you caught from the old versions to Pokemon Pearl and Diamod (however to do so you must get an item first).

Pokemon Pearl and Diamond come out on April 22nd.
