C-Gear, formally known as the Communication Gear, is a function introduced in Generation V. It has three modes; Infrared, Online, and Wireless. The player receives it in Striaton City after helping Fennel.

The C-Gear sits upon the bottom screen in a similar manner to the Pokétch in the Generation IV games and constantly looks for local Wireless, Infrared and Wi-Fi connections. If the player is near another Trainer who is playing the game with their C-Gear on, the player will automatically connect to them and get their trainer details and see how they're doing with their Pokémon in battles.

Pokémon Global Link Customizations[edit | edit source]

On the Pokémon Global Link website there is an option for users to change the background of their C-Gear. They can also alter their Pokédex skin and download an exclusive Pokémon Musical.

There are currently three C-Gear backgrounds available on the promotions page, each requiring a case-sensitive password to unlock. To enable the Munna background, type in PGLDR34M. PikachuCGear is the password needed for the Pikachu skin. To customize your C-Gear with The Minccino Twinkle, use PGLWELCOME. Then follow the instructions under the 'Customize' heading to change your C-Gear style.

Main options[edit | edit source]

The C-Gear has three main options:

  • Wireless

Allows the player to use the Xtransceiver and Entralink with nearby friends.

  • Online

By choosing Game Sync, the player's game will be saved and the player can send data to the Pokémon Global Link.

  • Infrared

With the DS's Infrared signal, the player can battle and trade with a person in front of the player. The player can also exchange friend codes and use the Feeling Check to see how compatible he/she is with other Trainers.

Other options[edit | edit source]

Other options are located along the bottom of the C-Gear screen. From left to right, they are:

  • Survey Reader

Allows player to carry out quizzes on passersby. More surveys can be added by answering questions at Passersby Analytics HQ in Castelia City.

  • Tag Log

With this, the player can send messages to nearby Trainers and see what they're doing in real time

  • Customization

You can customize your C-Gear slightly by altering the colors of buttons or by making them disappear completely.

  • Help
