People can't seem get enough of Wicke, a member of the mysterious Aether Corporation, which was revealed in the latest trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon. Just a heads up that some of these are NSFW-ish!

The coding that hints at the prospect of Niantic soon introducing buddy Pokémon that follow your avatar around, was first noticed in a github depository, which uploaded all of Pokémon GO's data from newest update.



The coding shows off three different possibilities for how 'buddy Pokémon' will appear on-screen:

-Perched on player's shoulder
-Flying next to player
-Walking behind player (could be tied in to the height/weight measurements previously discovered in Pokémon GO data mine

Would be pretty cool to see Niantic implement a feature that's available in other Pokémon games (Pokémon Yellow, HeartGold/SoulSilver). Can you imagine walking round town with a Zapdos as your 'buddy Pokémon' though?...



So much yes.

We're talking fire Pokémon turning into ice Pokémon and new colors for the oldie favorites. Introducing Alola forms, which will make their big debut in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Here are some of the classic Pokémon then depicted in their new forms, as courtesy of Serebii:




Pokémon Sun and Moon will also introduce the 'styles' feature -- which is dependent upon which parts of the island you encounter a given Pokémon on:

Here is a brief glimpse of the new Pikachu game in development courtesy of NHK. This episode of The Professional will be broadcasted in Japan on October 28.

In the clip, you can see Ishihara saying that filming isn't allowed—and then, the announcer says, "This is the first time cameras have gotten in." You can see the Pokémon Company staffers work on its "super secret game," which stars Pikachu and looks to be a 3DS title.


Now continue to watch Pikachu maniacally laugh.

Mewtwo has no official special moves in Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS, but you can hackily achieve them through the use of Miis.  In order to do it, you have to download a Mii not created on your system, then select it for play, deselect it, and select Mewtwo.  Mewtwo inherits that Mii's custom moves, but since this isn't supposed to happen things get pretty glitchy.

Here's the developer, Nate's description of the game:

Pokémon Apex is developed with an adult Pokémon fan in mind. The game contains some adult dialogue (some swearing) and themes (death, abandonment), and some minor horror elements. Furthermore, the game is intended to be somewhat difficult, meaning that you will need to think about your strategies and make conscientious choices about your team in order to progress. Playing through the game haphazardly will get you into trouble.

Also, this game is for people who prefer to take their time in games to explore their environment and uncover hidden details. There are lots of small details hidden throughout the game, as well as secret areas and items that reward meticulous players.

The game's still in development, but you can download it over here to try it out!

Loving how Niantic is stepping up with this little easter egg -- Pikachu on top the shoulder of your player is a direct reference, hat tip, etc. to the Pokémon Anime series. Now, if we could only all get this update...At this point it looks like a select few players are enjoying this new feature. When the update is finally released be sure that you walk the 10km with the SAME Pikachu.
