First you've got Rowlet. This starter Grass Quill Pokémon can launch a soundless attack, and twist its neck at around 180 degrees to peer behind itself.




Next you've got Litten. A fire cat Pokémon that can attack with, wait, wait for it, flaming hairballs!


Lastly, you have Popplio, the Sea Lion Pokémon.

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?

This morning's Pokémon direct announced the arrival of a new set of Pokémon games coming to 3DS later this year. The games will be available in Japanese, English, Italian, Korean, Spanish, French, German, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

The presentation also announced that the recently re-released Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow for 3DS will utilize the Pokémon Bank, allowing players to transfer their Gen 1 Pokémon into Sun and Moon.


Edit: an earlier version of this post identified Sun and Moon as generation 7, which has not been confirmed by the Pokémon Company, but it will definitely feature "a new world, new Pokémon, and new adventures" according to the official site.

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.

The days of Professor Sycamore have apparently come and gone (queue the outrage from the loyal fans, of course). Sycamore really got the people going with his long and dark, luscious locks:



It seems that the Pokemon Game Freak developers decided to further up the ante, and thus introduced Sun and Moon's very shirtless Professor Kukui:

Some might argue the dude's shirtless cause it's Hawaii, and the humidity's probably through the roof, but I'd have you refer to the present lab coat...Annd now the reactions:

Game Freak's official website has posted this strange image, accompanied by the text "This classic game played all over the world will be reborn from a surprise collaboration." While the horse-like image could be from Rare's Viva Piñata (To which Nintendo recently acquired the rights), the "collaboration" could possibly be with Pokémon, seeing as how it has played an important role in Game Freak's history, not to mention it's also "classic." All this is just speculation and the image may not have anything to do with Pokémon at all.

What do you guys think? The gym leaders were revealed yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con, when hundreds of players also gathered with high hopes that a legendary might be unleashed...no such luck, unfortunately. Some other details covered:

  • There are easter eggs that nobody's discovered yet
  • They’re planning ways to customize Pokestops
  • Pokemon Centers are coming
  • There will be more functionality added to gyms, though the specifics aren’t clear
  • Niantic says the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be
  • They’re still discussing breeding, but nothing concrete in the works yet
  • The legendary birds are tied to teams in some way, as the original designs implied
  • Yep, they know about the three-step glitch.
  • It sounds like we can’t expect legendaries until after the game has been released on all regions, which makes sense

It's practically a give at this point that your Pokémon GO! adventures will take you off the beaten path, and maybe even tempt you to go exploring your neighbors' properties with the utmost caution...naturally, this pisses the hell out of some folks who just want to be left alone like this chick...



Well, not Matthew Beaman. Beaman's been busy depositing 3D models of Pokémon for players at Poké Stops around Ikfracombe, Devon. He wanted to leave players souvenirs that'll last off their screens.



"I thought rather than leaving it just to chance I should let people have some fun with it.



"I've had people shouting thank you at me in the street."



Damn right. You are the MAN.
