Yep, it’s true. Apparently, a group of Chinese gamers have started up a petition asking Nintendo to localise the games into Chinese. Here’s what they say about why the games should have Chinese added as an in game language option:
Thank you all for introducing us to the wondrous world of Pokémon, and creating infinite encounters and smiles around our world. Today in Washington, D.C., I have another miraculous encounter at the 2014 Pokémon World Championships, which I believe will make my dream come true.
On the other side of this planet, countless enthusiastic Pokémon fans from the Greater China region are watching this tournament online via Twitch. While most of us cannot come here, we share one long-cherished dream that we want you to know — adding in-game Chinese support in Pokémon video games.
All in all, I agree with them 100%. Pokemon games should be available in every major language possible, and with China having such a huge population and such potential in the gaming market, I think it’s absolutely insane that Nintendo isn’t both adding Chinese language options to its games and officially supporting them in the region. Either way, you can find their petition at the link, where it has already gained more than 7200 signatures:
It’s already been online for a while due to the leaked Coro Coro scans that we forgot to post, but now Nintendo has added said artwork to the official site, along with various other media and information. We’ve got the information and screenshots for Mega Altaria below, but if you want to see the others (including the much anticipated Mega Salamence), click the read more link to view the full post.
With that said though, let’s begin with the information!
Its Mega Evolved type is Dragon/Fairy, it’s new ability is Pixilate (which turns all Normal moves into Fairy type ones), and its Attack, Special Attack and Defence are increased, with the former two getting the biggest boosts. Here are some screenshots of it:
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).
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…
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.
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!
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!
For many months now, people have been asking when Nintendo would release remakes of Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. And just today, right out of the blue, Nintendo has answered their prayers! Behold, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire versions, the all new remakes of gen 3 meant to bring them up to modern standards with all the features of the current games!
Here are the box art designs for the games:
But th=here’s a lot more to see in addition to just the box art, so if you want to view the first trailer, and see some of my predictions about this game, head inside!
