==History==
 
==History==
After the Tohoku earthquake took place on March 11th, 2011, Pokèmon declared that they were going to help. While nobody from Pokèmon (or Nintendo for that matter) was directly affected, the repercussions of the disaster spread throughout the nation. Pokèmon immediately responded by delaying the opening of the international [[Pokèmon Global Link]] websites, and in May that they would also assist through the Pokèmon with You campaign.
