In another intriguing post on the official Pokemon Twitter feed, the company has announced that a new evolved Pokemon will be revealed on the Pokemon Facebook page on September 25th. There’s no information on what exactly it is (other than an evolution of something we’ve seen before in some way), but word online is that it’s another Mega Evolution of some kind.
Just a few hours ago, the official Pokemon Youtube channel was updated with this trailer supposedly about Genesect and the new anime series episodes. Here it is: But while the footage included doesn’t show too much of interest (just what appears to be either late Unova season episodes or early Kalos episodes), what caught everyone’s eye is this logo at the end. Have a look: As you can clearly see, it refers to an unknown ‘GottaCatchEmAll.com’ website, implying that a new Pokemon official site for some purpose was going to be launched later in the year. No, there’s nothing on the site yet, just an error page (with Whois.net confirming that Nintendo of America does indeed own the domain name […]
Earlier this week, a mysterious new screenshot of a Pokemon game with a realistic setting was shown at an event. It had Lucario and Blaziken battling in a city like location, and sparked many theories that Game Freak (or some other affiliated developer) was working on a Wii U Pokemon Stadium/Colosseum style game. Here’s the screenshot in case you can’t remember: Unfortunately for some of us though, this doesn’t appear to be the case. Instead, the Pokemon Company’s official statement about it is merely this: There is nothing to announce at this time. These are merely conceptual images. Or in other words, it’s basically either a tech demo or a mock up, and not evidence of a new game that’s […]
It’s been rumoured for a while, but now a promotion poster advertising the new 3DS XL design has been spotted over in Japan. Here’s the poster mentioning it’s May 15th reveal: Unfortunately, Nintendo haven’t revealed the actual design yet (I assume this is what’s going to be revealed on May 15th), and it’ll also apparently be pretty difficult to get a hold of (from what I hear you have to win a special lottery for the chance to even buy one). Either way, a new 3DS XL design is coming soon, and it’s probably going to be one a lot of Pokemon fans wish will be made available outside of Japan. Are you interested in this new Eevee themed 3DS […]
Not just in the ‘stealing licensed characters’ way, but also in the ‘charges you ridiculous amounts of money for useful things’ way. Here’s IGN’s video about it: If you didn’t see their video, let me explain how much a freaking rip off this whole thing is. For starters, some of the characters are blatant copies of Charmander, Charizard, Squirtle and Blastoise. And did you want to use anyone but Charizard? That’ll be 100 dollars please! Above: Spot the Pokemon ripoffs! And the money grubbing exploitation doesn’t end there. The game is a platformer (which apparently steals the Super Mario World jump sound effect in a ridiculously obvious way), and you start with just FIVE attacks (as in projectiles). Run out? […]
I’ve already discussed a bit about why I don’t expect to see Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire remakes on the 3DS here: http://nintendo3dsdaily.com/nintendoarticles/why-a-pokemon-ruby-and-sapphire-remake-may-never-happen But while people are arguing about the possibility of a set of third gen remakes being released on 3DS, is it possible Nintendo or Game Freak might actually do something very different? That they might actually take the opportunity to remake either generation 1 or 2 again with the Pokemon X/Y game mechanics and style? It sounds insane (and likely is), but think about it carefully. Generation 1 and 2 were the most popular generations by far. They’ve got a whole ton of nostalgia value to capitalise on here. And with Pokemon X and Y, Nintendo have a […]
Well, it’s been known for quite a while, but now they’ve officially released a video showing Mewtwo transforming into its new forme: So there you go, there’s cast iron evidence that this ‘mysterious new Pokemon’ is in fact a new Mewtwo form.
Back when the 3DS was new, there was a lot of hype around the idea of Augumented Reality, the idea that you could use the 3DS camera and cards to make objects seem to appear in the real world. It was meant to let you see your favourite characters in real life settings, play games with the real world as the backdrop and all kinds of other neat things. And to demonstrate this, we got the likes of Face Raiders and the built in AR Games packaged with the system. But since then, it seems like Nintendo have basically given up on the whole concept. Sure we got the half working horror type that was Spirit Camera the Cursed Memoir […]
It’s already been available in other regions like Japan and the UK for a while, but it seems like it’s now 100% confirmed that the special edition Pikachu 3DS XL is being released in the US very soon. First we got an official Twitter message about it which all but confirmed the console as the coming ‘big announcement’: Pika pika! We’ve got some exciting news for Pikachu fans coming up tomorrow! twitter.com/Pokemon/status… — Pokémon (@Pokemon) March 13, 2013 But now retailers in the US have started to get the product in stores prior to the release date, with the Street Date set for March 24th. Here’s a nice picture confirming the system’s US release: So Pokemon fans may as well […]
Yes, it’s another Pokemon X and Y versions rumour with what are claimed to be more details about how the game is significantly different from past installments. But this time, there’s a lot more than just one or two bits of rumoured information, affiliate site Gamnesia has actually posted tons and tons of it! So here are the original rumours along with my opinions on each: Main characters are Jean and Jane; names are non-customizable This sucks if true, being able to change the main character’s name is one of those things that makes it feel like you’re an actual part of the adventure rather than just a spectator. It’s not completely out of the realms of possibility (Colosseum and […]
