All hail shiny Charizard!

Starting on February 27th, an identical re-print of the original set of Pokémon trading cards will go on sale in Japan. The cards will come in a pack of sixty with a coin and player's manual for 1,300 yen. 

Unluckily for the rest of us, this release is so far only planned for Japan, as it coincides with the anniversary of the original card game's release in Japan in 1996.

Amidst all the Pokémon GO madness, it's heartwarming, bittersweet moments like this that can really strike a chord of positivity in an otherwise mad and wild circus.

So, when a Japanese Pokémon GO player tweeted that he found his deceased younger brother's favorite pokémon beside his headstone, it's a nice bit of serendipity.

So, it has been revealed officially now, and guess what... Meowstic is the cat Pokémon with gender differences. That means the Pokébeach leaker has been correct about everything. Now all we need is to see the starter's final evolutions.

The English names are cool. Love Tyrunt for the T-Rex!

Just look at Xerneas, it's as majestic as ever! But I'm a bit disappointed with Yveltal. Oblivion Wing isn't too enticing.

Aww yiss.. Motherfroakin' Steel/Ghost. It's called Monorpale (France) / Hitotsuki (Japanese). Also from the looks of it, it will have Levitate. Its English name is Honedge.

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.

I found these pictures on Serebii. Apparently the Player Search System revealed earlier looks like it'll replace the C-Gear. The new battle screens look pretty cool in my opinion. What do you think?

The host of Pokémon Smash! played the X&Y copy Masuda lent them. They covered some early areas and they chose Froakie as a starter.

1. Fletchling was found, battled with Froakie and caught in the first route.

2. Fishing returns! The hosts fished up an Octillery, battled it with a Honedge (Honedge used what seemed to be Aerial Ace and Shadow Sneak) and caught it too!

3. Surfing (HM?) returns and items hidden as Pokéball on the ground also returns.

4. Inkay was found on tall grass in a small island and was caught with a Great Ball.
