One flaw:
You guys dislike the Dream World because it deprives you of berries unless you use your computer.
However, you'd be using your computer anyway even without the Dream World.
How much does it hurt to log on and sync to the Dream World?
I can understand for those who don't have Wi-Fi access on their DS, though.

Also, I would say the majority should be hating on the fact they cannot get berries without Dream World, not about the PDW itself.
Otherwise, you'd be hating pretty much the only thing that gives you access to said item.

Did you know what I did to fix that?
I told the Global Link I lived in the United Kingdom.

Give it a try, it's not as bad as it sounds.
On the downside, you lose access to anything that would normally only be available for your home country.

[set the flag that determines hidden abilities to on]

Two lines of code you can add at the part where the game generates a new Pokémon in a random battle.
That is wrong on so many levels...

I am not a big fan of it, I think I prefer the Pokewalker.

I only don't like the loading times and games that take forever such as that bloody Wailord game.

I completely agree with you, Amachi. It's just too much of a hassle for me, especially with college being as crazy as it is. It's got a good idea, but it shouldn't have been done through a medium differing from that of the game itself.

I don't hate it per se. It's a good effort by Nintendo to add some metagame content. My problem is that it's way too convoluted to get into- it's almost not worth the effort for a random Pokemon with a special ability. That will probably not be suitable for a viable battling party.

tl;dr it's too detatched from the actual game to be of any use.

I'm very unimpressed with the Dream World. I was so excited for it to come out and it's just a huge disappointment to me. Really, I mean... it's just so boring and the mini games aren't any fun at all. The one Pokemon per twenty-four hours thing is a real pain in the butt and inconvenience. I wasn't able to figure out how to send my birthday Togekiss to my game during my birth month either, but that's more or less my own fault. :/

I actually like Dream World, but this is due to many personal reasons, e.g. Having only 1 DS and no people nearby that use a DS means that I can get hold of Pokemon in my copy of White that I normally couldn't get in there.

Plus it doesn't matter to me moving out of the game, onto my laptop, i do other things, it becomes part of my online routine and as for berries, I don't care about berries, I never used them is Hoenn, Sinnoh so Unova getting berries from the dream world is no biggie.

Tbh it isn't an essential part of the game and you don't have to use it, so if you don't like it don't.

I think that the dream world is a better addition to the series than the Pokewalker personally. It's very easy to access and doesn't require an extra device. Not to mention, getting Pokemon with special abilities is a very good offer.

I love the Dream World.
The only thing I don't like is not being able to choose what area you go to and the 24 hour penalty that you get.

I dislike the Dream World, too. I hate how you have to go on the computer to do it. It would be much better if the Dream World was in the game--not online. That would make me like it more.

I don't like the dream world because you need a computer. I'd rather just have all the stuff included in the cartridge.

So far, I'm kind of bugged by the fact that game freak is making us rely on an external feature as something entirely new. This has been going on since the first set of Pokemon games, yes it's a cheap marketing strategy but it apparently works.

I personally have no use for the Dream World since I just use Pokegen and action replay my ****. From what I've experienced during the first period it was released, however, I just found it to be very cumbersome. The limitations it set were disappointing, not to mention the minigames grew pretty stale and I only consider the flying game to be fun. The fact that you have to use it to legitimately get berries is also cumbersome, especially since the EV-reducing berries are something EVERY competitive battler wants.

Ultimately, Dream World felt more like a chore than anything fun, I don't really regret leaving it.

I have a computer, and I can use it, so I have no problems with it. I don't really fetch berries, and if I need an ability I will normally borrow a pokemon from someone and breed it.

Also, its not like the Pokemon games had locked content before
Gen I - Pokemon needed to be traded over to "catch em' all" and the evolve forms
Gen II - even more evolve forms
Gen III - Not much other than that one thing from FR/LG
Gen IV - The PokeWalker, and PalPark
Gen V - Dream World and WiFi

There have always been parts of the game that have limited people from access to the full content.

I didn't even know what Dreamworld was, so rather than mess with it, I left it alone. Sounds like it sucked for the most part anyways.

I think the concept of the Dream World was a really good idea, but it lacked a little bit in execution. Maybe it's just because I have an old computer, but I find the mini-games run awfully slow, with some that have a 1:30 time limit taking nearly 5 minutes to play. And if you're closer to a casual player than a hardcore one, the Pokemon with Hidden Abilities are nice, but don't serve you much purpose getting them at level 10, other than the beginning of the game (this is how I got my Wobbufett in White, and Druddigon & Growlithe in B2 much earlier than normal).

Again, good idea, but I felt it could have been better.

I mainly agree with what she said, while I do have a computer, I didn't like the Dream World in general. It may have nice items, berries and Pokemon to collect, the flaws is that silly time limit, and if my mother caught me using it she'd think I'm still acting like a little kid.

Maybe this was why B2/W2 relieved the getting some Hidden Abilities issue with the Hidden Grottos, but yeah I do admit the Dream World should have been included in the game itself and not online.

While I always use the computer, I never planned on getting a DW account because: 1) I have a limit on how many sites I joined, so I won't be too distracted, and 2) I don't like how it's one account per cartridge rather than all 4 cartridges sharing one account. The Hidden Grotto was a nice feature, but it's still lacking some Pokemon I want for my team (i.e. Thick Fat Mamoswine).

I joined the Dream World today and it asked for my ID. My account was telling me I was playing Pokemon White but also gave me the opportunity to add more game cards to the account, if this is what you were referring to.

Well that changes everything for me; too bad my first reason prevents me from getting an account. Joining here in PC, as well as MSN, Skype, and Steam are enough, but there is a chance for me get one once MSN and Skype merge. Perhaps now I could get the DW Mamoswine and Alakazam I want.

I don't really have an opinion, it's alright I suppose.

I voted no though because I slightly lean towards not liking it...just because it's awkward and seems gimmicky just for the sake of it.

I actually like the Dream World, it's like a 2nd alternative to the PokeWalker (Although you don't gain experience )

It gives me something to do on the PC when I'm bored haha. And capturing Pokemon via minigames is a really nice feature for me. I like the Dream World
