This is a thread to talk about anything and everything concerning the newly Internationally reopened dream world. Pokemon obtained, movesets they have, minigames, etc.
A lot of people have been asking this, so I'll say it here for everyone convienence. The Eeveelutions from the pokemon website mini game are not available to download from the Dream World site yet. The game will continute until around May 5, when the game promotion ends and the eeveelutions can be obtained.
New rule guys because of recent complaints and short one-liner posts. In the first post and requoted for your convenience.
Frequently Asked Questions:Each post must have a few (three) sentences in it. Saying 'I caught a ____' or 'I beat the e4 again' is spammy and also plain old boring to read.
Pending. Pm me questions and answers that you know or would like to know.
Q: Why can't I get my eeveelution from the DW?
A: The Eeveelutions from the pokemon website mini game are not available to download from the Dream World site just yet. The game will continute until around May 5, when the game promotion ends and the eeveelutions can be obtained.
Q: How frequently do you need to water the berries, and do they grow when you are not playing?
A: As you'll often see, you don't really need to water your own berries much as when you first plant them the soil will be moist. Other players(friends or Random people) may stop by your house at a later time to water your berries if the soil has become dry. You can visit other people's houses yourself and get points for watering their berries for them.
Your berries will slowly grow while your away and most of them like the oran or pecha berries will be fully grown in 24 hours or less, making them ready to pick the next day. A few berries like the sitrus berry will take a little more then 24 hours to grow, so they may not be ready to pick the next time you visit DW. Finally, the type berries like the Haban or Yache berry(one of which you're given 5 of when you start DW) will take about 3-4 days to grow to harvest.
Q: After you befriended 50 Pokemon and selected them to come back to your game, does that mean you can no longer befriend any Pokemon?
A: As it is now, that seems to be the case. However, there was a similar restriction when the original japanese site launched that was later lifted to allow more then 50 pokemon to be befriended by adding more pages to your friend board then the initial 5. Whether or not this will happen again for the international sites has still yet to be determined.
Q: When your time runs out, can you quickly wake your Pokemon up and get a Pokemon materialized into Entree Forest?
A: When your time is over in the DW and you've chosen to wake up your pokemon, you'll be able to shortly take it and the befriended pokemon and whatever items you've chosen back to your game. When everything been returned to your game, the pokemon and items will immediately appear in your Entralink. However, you might want to give the site a few minutes to process everything before you attemt to take your pokemon back. For some people, due to technical issues or connection problems, may be unable to recall their pokemon back for a while. If you have problems with this after waiting for a while, please go to the help section on the site and leave a ticket as they will be able to help you more then I can.
Q: I found a "Pass orb" in DW. What is it for?
A: Pass orbs are normally acquired by completing special mission when you link up with a friend in the Entralink and used to purchase special 'pass powers' that will inhance your gameplay in some way(Hatch eggs faster, get discounts from stores), but only for a limited amout of time. These pass powers can be obtained by entering Entralink and clicking on the tree next to the old man when you enter.
For more information about the various Pass powers you can purchase with your Pass orbs, please refer to this page.
-You must have a Pokemon Trainers Club and a Global Link account in order to obtain an eeveelution and have the sent to your game from your GL account
-There are 4 levels total in this game that must be completed to aquire the eeveelution of your choice to be sent to your DW account at a later date
-If you want a specific eeveelution, try to catch only the orbs of the one you want while avoiding the orbs of those you don't
-After you have chosen your eeveelution, you will not be able to aquire another one even if you beat the game again. The game can only give one eeveelution per trainer account
-This video has easy tips to score tons of points
-Try to make all scoops the 'bite size' and try to use an equal amount of scoops from each flavor
-when the minigame starts go through the areas until you find the berry(the the berry will be in the area which has a glitter/glow in the middle of that area.) When you find the berry that area will be marked by a red dot on the map. The hidden pokemon you are looking for is usually at least 3 areas from that point.
-Use the "listen carefully" button to hear for the cry of the pokemon. The area where you can hear the pokemon's cry the loudest is the area where that pokemon is in

Pending. Pm me to add whatever other information you or other's would like to know
-When you befriend a pokemon it is sent to the entralink forest on your game which can be accessed by selecting entralink on your C-gear while outside and then heading up to the forest.
-When you go to entralink forest, Dreamballs are added to your bag while your there. They act like masterballs or parkballs and will always catch the pokemon.
-You can use the Dreamballs, or attempt to capture the pokemon normally with a regular ball
-Pokemon from the DW can pass down their unique abilities if the befriended pokemon is female. Breeding for DW abilities will not work if the pokemon with the ability is male or if the female is bred with a ditto. DW ditto(if/when they are released) will not result in the bred pokemon having its DW ability.

Search for Missing Pokemon
+ 5000 Points (minimum for finding Pokemon)
+ 500 Points bonus for every second of Remaining time
+ 5000 Points (if Pokemon's lost berry is found)
Theoretical Legit Max Score: 53,500 Points (assuming it took 3 seconds to find the berry and the pokemon if they happened to be within 1 or 2 spots from your starting position).
Video of 49,000 Points: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwPCQls6Btg
- The Listen carefully feature is not worth using. The timer counts down while you're listening and each second lost is 500 Points. Use the Berry location as a check instead. The lost Pokemon will generally be within 3 steps from the spot you found the Berry at.
- Transitions between scenes and checking Pokemon does not cause the timer to go down, only when you are idle. So if you click the arrows to move quickly without waiting too much in between, you will save quite a few seconds in total.
- Keeping moving until you see the Berry. The game is mostly luck, so the faster you find the Berry, the faster you will find the Pokemon. The single Berry in the maze will always be a glimmering spot at the center of the screen, so focus your attention there. Finding the Berry will add an extra 5000 points.
- The shaking spots where Pokemon are hiding may not animate right when you reach a particular scene/transition, but if you know where those spots are in each possible screen, you can click them right away to save time.
+ 300 Points for each Water Droplet collected when speed is below Max Speed
+ 1000 Points for each Speed Up when speed is below Max Speed
+ 450 Points for each Water Droplet collected at Max Speed
+ 1500 Points for each Speed Up collected at Max Speed
+ 200 Points Time bonus for every second remaining
+ 200 Points Speed-up bonus at the end of the game for every Speed Up achieved (so in essence a total of 1200 Points for each Speed Up if you reach the Goal)
Theoretical Legit Max Score: ~63,000 Points

- Avoid hitting Lightning at all costs. Your score will greatly be reduced for every Lightning you hit.
- The Pelipper's dodging movement speed is faster than it may seem. Imagine tracing a path lead by your cursor/guide flags and the Pelipper as a magnet that will instantly follow along this path. It's actually easy to swerve and avoid Lightning yet still grab the Water Droplet next to it. Move quickly and you won't be hit. (See Video for examples)
- It's okay to hit clouds even though they may slow you down just a bit. Try to avoid hitting clouds, however, unless it's for avoiding Lightning or getting a Water Droplet. Net points-wise, you may lose some of the extra +150 or +500 Points from getting Water Droplet or Speed Up at Max Speed, but if hitting a cloud was for the sake of getting more Water Droplets, you will earn back +300 Points at least for every Water Droplet, not to mention avoiding Lightning is crucial.
Ice Cream Scoop
+ 75 Points for every inch of Height reached (with decimals and rounded down)
Flavors Multiplier Bonus: 1 + [Total Scoops / (3 * Highest Number Scoop of One Flavor)]; Max is 2.00
(Heart) Bite-sized Multiplier Bonus: For 14 Total Scoops, 14/14 or 13/14 = 2.00; 12/14 or 11/14 = 1.90; 10/14 = 1.80 etc. | For < 10 Total Scoops, 10/10 = 2.00; 9/10 = 1.90; 8/10 = 1.80 etc. (This scoring needs more testing and data)
Theoretical Legit Max Score: ~60,000 Points

- The following strategy is disputed by some as a glitch. But nevertheless, it's the only way to get a high score. Stack scoops straight upward, and after every scoop placed, quickly grab another small scoop and place it in front of the scoop you just stacked (so this secondary scoop is not actually stacked on top, just put out in front of the previous scoop). This will help, or almost guarantee your actual scoop to stick and become stable and not fall off (if you have placed stacked the scoop near the center and not sliding off). (See video for examples)
- Try to make all the scoops with the "bite-sized" circumference shown by the game on the right side panel. The ideal size will vary each game, and generally larger sizes will help with Height points, reduce the total number of scoops (also making it easier to get the full size bonus multiplier), and have a slightly higher threshold for what qualifies as "bite-sized" (a bit more room for human error when judging sizes).
- Use the Berries that have a high Easy to scoop rating (3 to 5 Stars are ideal). These will allow you to make scoops much faster and thus make more scoops and reach a higher stack height. Stickiness rating does not matter here because of the strategy mentioned above. Examples of good berries for high scores in this mini game include Rindo Berry and Haban Berry. All berry stats are listed here: http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/dreamworldmini.shtml
Play with Wailord
+ 300 Points * Multiplier for each Ball opened
Ball counter bonus: + 500 Points bonus for each Ball tallied at the end of the game (displayed on the right side panel)
Combo bonus: + 100 * Number of Balls opened before any Pokemon fell into the water
Perfect clear bonus: + 10,000 Points if no Pokemon fell in the water during the entire game
Number of balls Multiplier: 1 + (Total number of Balls / 100)
Theoretical Legit Max Score: ~100,000 Points
- The direction your Pokemon launches from the spout of water depends on its position on the spout. For best control, try to make your Pokemon land in the center of the spout so it will be launched straight up. However, for strategic purposes, you may wish to have your Pokemon land near the sides so it will launch diagonally if that's the fastest course towards your target.
- Don't be in too much of a rush to launch your Pokemon, especially when all four are present. You will get a much higher score if you never let any Pokemon fall in the water as there's 10,000 Points for the Perfect clear, as well as lots of points for keeping the Multiplier going. At x10 Multiplier, each Ball opened will be worth 3000 Points!
- Move quickly and follow which Pokemon is closest to falling into the water and don't hesitate. If you're in an emergency and need to reach two Pokemon at a large distance apart, you can try to rapidly click and generate continuous spouts of water to launch the first Pokemon up when reaching it (instead of catching it on the spout) and quickly move to the second Pokemon.
