We almost missed this. Almost. All signs in the picture below point to the fact that we're about to have a bizarre ghost/ground-type Pokémon in Pokémon Sun and Moon:


@kaniclub

The Pokémon is called Sunabaa, which happens to be a play on the Japanese word for 'sandbox.' Sunabaa evolves into Shirodesuna, which literally translates into 'A Castle of Sand.' This news was revealed in Japanese magazine Coro Coro Comi; but the official announcement should be here in short time.

Though there are very few details available at this time, besides the above Japanese announcement video, IGN has put together a few of the first scraps of information Nintendo has let slip.

The latest instalment of the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series -- which spans nine games across four platforms and has sold over 13 million copies worldwide -- will again be coming Nintendo 3DS systems.

There are no more details -- not even any images to tempt you -- but Nintendo say that "players can look forward to even greater, randomly created dungeons that change each time they enter."

"In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, players will battle alongside Legendary and Mythical Pokémon to save the world in a sweeping tale of adventure and mystery."

The fish named Grayson Hopper has been playing for around 135 hours. Grayson has even acquired his first Pokémon, a Charmander named AAAABBK, and defeated the rival's Squirtle!

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.

The petition, which was started up over on change.org has already gained over 57,000 supporters, and 'needs 75,000 total'. Harambe is a dual ghost and fighting type-- a gorilla who died abducting a child. His ability is “Meat Shield.” Seriously though, could any Pokémon be more legendary?

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!

If you've ever wished your Pokémon were less "cute fuzzy creatures" and more "scantily clad anime girls" (you know who you are), Pocket Master is the game for you:




The game apparently features evolution, so you can watch your barely covered babes turn into what I assume are even more scantily clad cuties. It's no Moemon, but it brings a kinda new gameplay style while you journey to defeat the evil Mewtwo.

It's available for both iOS and Android. Play it while you can, probably!

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:
