Such simpler times were had by all when we just stayed inside in our caves, minding our own business, unaware of the devastating madness just outside our doors.

Yep, it looks like 7 News in Boston reports the body was discovered floating in a brook at Rotary Park in Nashua earlier today. 

A Pokémon Go player had made the discovery while exploring the area, on the hunt to catch 'em all.

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.

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?

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.

From the announcement:

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter - two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec. 27 - due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.

See below, and decide for yourself. The two trademarks read 'Solgaleo' and 'Lunaala', which serves to make distinct references to the games' respective subtitles--'Sol' being the Sun, and 'Luna' being the moon.
