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.

Following rumors that we might be getting buddy Pokémon in Pokémon GO, Niantic announced today that the feature will in fact be added to an upcoming version of the game. They additionally said that buddy Pokémon will open up exciting new in-game options and bring in more candies, as reward for walking certain distances.

Gotta love how the Pokémon are sized relative to their trainers as well!

Can you blame them?! Here I foolishly assumed anyone's best shot at catching an Articuno was all a matter of their open-mindedness to ascending Mt. Everest, or cruising to the farthest reaches of an ice cave in Iceland, or some sh*t. Buut nope. Looks like Ohio is where it's at.

And of course the people have already stepped forth to express their outrage over this potential lie:




When things came to a head, the Ohio Facebook group opted for renaming themselves, "Was: Dayton Area Pokémon Go! Now: Articuno Freakshow."

After nine years of work by Pokémon Uranium's developers, and a reported 1.5 million downloads, the inspired fan-made game has officially been shut down by Nintendo---specifically, all the download links were removed before Nintendo could pursue them with any legal action.



Some truly saddening news, as Pokémon Uranium was definitely a game worth getting real excited about! Featured over 150 new Pokémon, a new type of 'nuclear' Pokémon, and dozens of hours of new content with a well-developed storyline. See the original trailer here:



This isn't the first time we've seen Nintendo bring down the ban hammer on a fan re-make: Nintendo gave the same treatment to "AM2R," a remake of the GameBoy classic Metroid II.

For those unaware, Pokémon GO has all but taken over the planet at this point. Phone batteries everywhere have taken a devastating hit. People wander the streets with lifeless eyes, tired legs (still getting used to the whole walking everywhere thing) on the hunt for another Magikarp (cause you need like 500 of those to get a damn Gyarados).

Seriously. Go outside, look around, and catch at least a dozen folks committed to leveling up, catching 'em all, and hitting every f**king Poké Stop between here and Narnia, while on their way to a potentially perpetual state of unemployment. Like some of us really should be getting back to work at this point...

And now to the hot topic of the day: when you first start up with this game, you've the option to side with Team Instinct, Valor, or Mystic:





Well, an inspired piece of banner artwork from DeviantArt’s Seoxys6 is serving as the rallying point for players out there that have grown tired of the senseless hostility between players on different teams. Team Harmony's message goes:

“Disturb not the harmony of Fire, Ice, or Lightning lest these three Titans wreck destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water’s Great Guardian shall arise to quell the fighting alone its song will fail. Thus the Earth shall turn to ash. O, Chosen One, into thine hands bring together all three.”

Can this new, 'unofficial' team put an end to all the animosity, or nah? I appreciate the nod to the pokémon storyline -- in the movie Ash and friends have to do something with Lugia in order to restore order between the three legendary birds, Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres.



I don't know though; these reactions suggest we might yet be on an endless quest to attain peace between competing factions....

Just this morning Pokémon Go Hub went ahead and published a Pokémon Go spawn rate chart, which uses over 100 million data points from Poké Radar’s “prediction algorithm dataset.” In English, this sh*t is highly accurate.

Some interesting things to note:

Pidgey is more common than Rattata...

Dragonite is the 'least common' after the (non-existent) Legendary Pokémon.


After that, the least common Pokémon are:


Gyarados (how'd they spell it wrong in that table though...) has the same spawn rate as Kabutops.

Male Nidorans are more common than female Nidorans.

You'll encounter 21 Pikachus for every 10,000 Pokémon you encounter...

The images of a new Pokémon have been revealed by Jeux Video. This Pokémon is said to be the evolution of Amaura and is called Aurorus. Aurorus has a move called Freeze Dry, which is an Ice-type move which freezes the opponent but is said to be super effective against Water-type Pokémon. IGN have also revealed another new Pokémon called Tyrantrum.

According to an interview on Polygon, it has been stated that no Kalos Pokémon will have a Mega Evolution within Pokémon X & Y. Various details are coming in from impressions at the media briefing last week. Pokémon will gain EXP when a Pokémon is captured. The Pokémon Centers not only have the standard PokéMart, but will also have a place for you to change your outfit.
