Cheating in the Pokemon National Championships?

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News6 comments so far


Oh boy, this should certainly be interesting to watch.  Apparently, some competitors have been complaining about three time Pokemon champion Ray Rizzo and his Aegislash Pokemon, which was seemingly held in a Pokeball not usually possible to use for that Pokemon species. Or in other words, they say the Aegislash was held in a Dream Ball, an item which was exclusive to the Dream World in the fifth generation games and which isn’t possible to use on any Pokemon from the sixth generation of games (the Dream World doesn’t exist in this generation, so no Kalos Pokemon can be found there).

Jirachi Wish Maker Finally Released in Korea

And in case you’re wondering while I’m bothering to cover a Pokemon anime movie and its release in the region, just get a load of this. How long do you think it’s been since the film was released anywhere else on the planet? Come on, guess.  Because if you think the delay between our favourite games getting released in Japan and them being released in other regions is kind of long, this takes the cake. Give up?  Okay then.  This movie was released in almost all regions bar Korea in…

Oh Hey, Looks like Another Nintendo Ripoff on the App Store!

This time, it’s a game called… yes, get this… Bird Jesus.  And who exactly does this game (illegally) star? Pidgeot from the Pokemon series of course!  And while the description of ‘Bird Jesus’ may or may not be particularly accurate when applied to this beloved Pokemon, it still doesn’t hide that the app itself is illegal and stealing a character from a Nintendo game in its desperate attempt to make money as a shoddy Flappy Bird knockoff. So yeah, guess they can expect to see a cease and desist order from Nintendo or the Pokemon Company soon enough.   Good riddance.

One Interesting Thing about Pokemon Omega Ruby’s Mega Evolutions…

Nin3DSNintendo Articles4 comments so far


It’s not something I’ve seen a lot of people mention yet, but I think it should be said regardless. The new Mega Evolutions in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire prove that what is currently on the Pokemon X/Y game card isn’t the be all and end all of generation 6. In other words, what we find by hacking Pokemon X and Y is only a potentially tiny portion of the content planned for generation 6, which opens up one hell of a lot of exciting possibilities.  Keep reading if you want to know some of them!

Yveltal is getting a Mega Evolution in a Future Pokemon Game?

Nin3DSNintendo 3DS News2 comments so far


Well, the Spanish press release for Pokemon Art Academy sure seems to be ‘hinting’ at it.  Have a read of this: cuando seamos expertos podremos dibujar hasta MegaEvoluciones de Yveltal Now, I don’t speak any Spanish, but that sounds an awful lot like ‘Yveltal is getting Mega Evolutions’.  Perhaps this is hinting at some new form being revealed alongside the Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire remakes?  Or a special event version being released over wifi? But what do you think?  Is this evidence that Yveltal is getting a Mega Evolution soon?

However, there’s one more condition that needs to be met before Nintendo releases this new ‘form’ over the GTS as an event Pokemon.  Namely, 100 million trades over the internet. This is because this Vivillon form is being released to commemorate the massive popularity of Pokemon X and Y, and will be made available when the magic number of Pokemon trades is surpassed in the near future.  For those wondering, the current count stands at 90 million Pokemon having been traded worldwide. Here’s a picture of the new design: Want to see more pictures of this fancy pattern Vivillon design? If so, keep reading, there are quite a few screenshots showing it in action to be seen!

And while it’s nothing like a full trailer, it’s still pretty nice looking in it’s own right, what with a few seconds footage of a battle between Groudon and Kyogre being the main focus of the video.  Here’s the footage, as posted by the official Pokemon Youtube channel: So yes, what do you think about this?  Do you think the game looks good from the roughly twenty seconds of footage we have so far?  Come in and post a comment if you do, or talk about the game on the Nintendo 3DS Community.com forums instead!

It’s something I got sent a link to earlier today, and something I definitely thought was worth mentioning on the site.

Want to know the link?  Well, you can find out after the break!
