"For just four weeks starting today, 22nd March 2013, Pokémon Trainers across the country can add the long-awaited Mythical Pokémon Meloetta to their Pokédex via a special character distribution event at participating GAME stores nationwide. In anticipation of the event, The Pokémon Company International has revealed comprehensive details on the stats, capabilities, and rare talent of this new Pokémon that can be obtained by players of Pokémon Black 2, Pokémon White 2, and the original Pokémon..."
"If you’re a frequent visitor to a popular MMORPG game forum, there’s a good chance you’ve come across the regular request for a Pokemon MMO. Arguably one of the biggest gaming franchises on the planet, Nintendo have yet to capitalize on the hugely popular Pokemon franchise, which has left a huge gap for some developer to fill with a pet-based collector game, enter Panzer Pets."
"Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version videogame players will get the Pokémon of their dreams, and give their opponents nightmares, when The Pokémon Company International kicks off a special character distribution event next month featuring the Mythical Dark-type Pokémon, Darkrai. The elusive Darkrai comes equipped with a special attack and special Ability that send opposing Pokémon into a frightful scenario when used together."
"Game Podunk: "I'm sure you've all heard the news by now- the main Pokemon series is getting a sequel in the form of Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 for the Nintendo DS. The main question from fans of the series is a simple "Why?"
Why release a direct sequel on the DS, an increasingly obsolete platform? Why even make a sequel in the first place? I believe I have the answer. And while my conclusion might sound silly, when you really think about it...it makes sense.""
In this top 5, I list my favorite video games based on anime. Some of the entries will surprise you, but they all have anime/manga that released either at the same time or before the game was published. There's some real juggernauts in this list, and a few surprises. Take a look, and you'll see what I mean.
"Arceus with their only ability Multitype will be available to those with international Pokémon Global Link accounts during the whole month of February next year: a total of 29 days.
Unlike after the Japanese poll, however, the official Pokémon site has yet to release a list of the Pokémon with the highest ranks. Nevertheless, during the first few weeks, Ditto and Mew were second and third in rank, with Mudkip moving Mew to fourth later on: quite different from that of the Japanese poll."
Skylanders is a unique style of game in which players can interchange characters with collectible figures they place on a surface. Is this a concept that other games could utilize? Mike D from Yet Another Gaming Show looks at a couple other examples of games that could consider this very notion.
The 2011 holiday gaming season is underway, and there are plenty of 3DS games to look forward to over the next few weeks. Even as we head into 2012, games like Luigi's Mansion 2 and Kid Icarus are on the horizon. Things are looking up for the 3DS, but Nintendo should really kick it into gear and announce these five first-party titles for its 3D handheld.
After being promised time and time again that a new Pokémon game is going to be revealed, is the moment finally upon us? Nintendo promised us a while back they were working on a new game that would shock players and news has surfaced that the Pokémon Company will be attending this years Jump Festa. Maybe the new game will be announced, maybe not. Best thing to do now is just sit back and wait because we might be waiting a little while longer yet.
"In the eyes of hard core gamers, a portable system is just a waste of money and time. However, in my years of being a fan of portable gaming, I have brought it upon myself to ask other gamers why they have no interest in any portable systems. Their answers always seem to surprise me, as some of them even contradict their own previous statements. The following are the top five stupidest excuses ranging from somewhat reasonable to just idiotic."
Marking the thirtieth round of Articles of Excellence is the Pokémon Black Version review by Dark Arcanine. Scoring it a great 4.5/5 he describes the fifth generation as having proved itself to be a worthy addition to the collection, with the classic formula being spruced up with various additions and upgrades to provide another fun set of titles.
"Anyone who was alive in the late '90s knows Pokemon. There's no real need to explain that Pokemon were magical beasts, housed in convenient capsules and summoned forth to engage in mortal combat for the goal of catchin' 'em all and being the very best (except for posterity, I guess). Anyone ever afflicted by Pokemon Fever probably has a story or two to tell you about their journey through the world of Pokemon. By that I mean, I was afflicted by Pokemon Fever, and I have a story or two to tell..."
As many fans may be aware, we have been expecting an official unveiling of new and anticipated Pokémon games that have been announced to be arriving on the Nintendo 3DS and the Nintendo Wii. Corocoro, a Japanese gaming magazine, have said that they will be unveiling the new game in their June Issue which is due for release June 15th. Many fans were horrified by the delay after CoroCoro stated that the unveiling would have been in this months issue last month. However, Dengeki DS Magazine are ...
"On this week's MP3 David capitulates to the siren song of Minecraft, Nick goes back in Timeshift and back in Trine, and Pat explores Dungeon Hunter on PSN. Andy remains hooked on Pokemon Black, finally finishes inFamous, talks Might and Magic Clash of Heroes, and dishes the scoop on the Gears of War 3 beta. We also collectively talk about Portal in anticipation for Portal 2.
Capcom solidifies itself as a recurring news item, and trivia fails to get a correct answer this week."
The delay of Pokémon's Global Link feature--and many others--is due to the events that occurred during the Japan tsunami/earthquake last month, in an attempt to conserve energy. Some positive news that have been coming out are indeed a relief, as Global Link will re-launch on April 13.
"Pat takes sick leave and Andy hosts as he, David, and Nick journey through the halls of video game history. We discuss the oldies like Mass Effect 2, Pokemon Black, Minecraft, Left 4 Dead, Medal of Honor, Shattered Horizon, the Nintendo 3DS, and a real relic: the 15 year old Sega SuperGT.
We take a look at what games your tax dollars are funding in gaming news. Trivia continues, and we wrap up with a few movies in casual discussion."
"Everyone is back into the swing of gaming this week as Andy presents his audio review of Nintendo 3DS and PilotWings Resort with some additional impressions from Pat. Also discussed by Andy are Raskulls, Pokemon Black, and the very recent SHMUP Strania. Pat reports in about his time with Crysis 2 (with some help from Nick), Shift 2 Unleashed, and Homefront. David then talks about the newest Mass Effect 2 DLC: The Arrival and his continuing Civilization 5 obsession."
The overall gameplay of Pokemon hasn’t changed much. But as the game emphasizes on evolution, it’s pretty clear that Pokemon has come a long way since the Red and Blue version fifteen years ago. Take a trip down memory lane and see what changed, and what stayed the same in the Pokemon universe.
Pokemon has been around for a LONG time. With over 600 Pokemons up to date, Sporacle, an online survey and trivia site whose name totally sounds like a Pokemon, has provided a poll that spans all the generations of Pokemon, and the fans have weighed in on which they remember most.
The Pokémon franchise has been hailed as one of the most addicting ways you can spend an entire weekend. The latest installment has now been released and there are a few things that could be done to improve on this well-known formula. Check out the full story and let us know what you think. Cheers!
"It may be the eleventh game in the series, but Nintendo and Game Freak’s Pokemon franchise is still shattering records. According to Nintendo, the latest iterations, Black and White, have sold more than 1.08 million units after just one day in the U.S. The previous entries, Diamond & Pearl, set the record with 780,000."
"The Presidents of the United States of America (the band, not the exclusive club of mainly old Sourthern white dudes) have made a song about Pokemon in celebration of the release of Pokemon Black and Pokemon White. It is so dorky, geeky, goofy, catchy...really any word that describes "nerdiness." But hey, its The Presidents. That's what they do best!"
To celebrate the release of Pokemon Black and White a group of fans decided to create a remix of their favorite Pokemon theme songs and gather them under the title of Missingno Tracks. They are released free in their website.
Get the free Missingno Tracks here free.
Some would make the argument that the 1990's were the heydays of Pokémon. During that time, every 8-year-old gamer would pull out their Pokémon Red/Blue and have a blast. It seems however that the popularity of Pokémon is as popular as it's ever been. Check out this story of how well Pokémon is selling even before it comes out. Cheers!!
"The subject in question just so happens to be: Pokemon. Darnel’s mother’s boyfriend purchased him a Gameboy Color (holy shit he was such a lucky kid) and he was going to play it after school and let everyone huddle around him and watch (except Patrick, he’s a bitch.) Each and every one of them squealed in preteen delight at this prospect, and you just sat there tapping your pen like some kind of poor drummer because it was such a rad thing to do, man."
"It's now 2010, gaming has progressed a lot, and Pokémon for me has not advanced hardly at all and is just still the same old Pokémon Red that I experienced all those years ago with a few graphical improvements and new Pokemon thrown into the mix. The core gameplay has not changed in the slightest since Pokémon Red and while I've tolerated it up until now, it's about time the world of Pokémon gaming was shaken up and we had some new innovative things inside the games. I've decided therefore to..."
Now that the general hussle and bussle of Pokémon Black and White is done with and out of the way, everything we could possibly know about the games at current is known - all except for the localised names for the Generation V creatures. The official English names have now been released for the 3 generic starters for the games, the previously titles Pokabu, Tsutarja and Mijumaru. These three of Fire, Grass and Water respectively will now be known as Tepig, Snivy and Oshawott (respectively).
Check out GameZones latest episode of “Big in Japan”. Richard Eisenbeis finds his inner trainer with Pokemon Black and White. Not having played a Pokemon game since the good old days of Pokemon Red, he gives you the low down on the newest installment that was released just a month ago, in Japan.
Set for a North American launch in spring 2011, it seems as if Pokemon Black and White couldn't come soon enough. Until the game finally launches outside of Japan, let's keep playing some HeartGold and SoulSilver and check out the starters for the upcoming set of Pokemon games.
"Some remakes just shouldn't have been made in the first place. If you ever have the chance, don't check out Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. Probably one of the worst remakes I've ever had the misfortune of seeing. A remake of the excellent 360 version, and built from the ground up for the Wii, Chop Till You Drop does everything wrong. The ability to take photographs was completely removed (which is odd, considering that the protagonist, Frank West, is a photographer...), the amount of zombie..."
Even before the start of the September 29 Press Briefing, Nintendo have finally confirmed that the 3DS will be able to use Mii's. The Mii's can be tranfered from a pesons Wii and downloaded onto the 3DS.
Nintendo have also stated that Pokémon Black & White sold over 2.5 million copies since it's release last week, making it an all time record in Japan.
And finally, the Wii Remote Plus has been confirmed. It actually exists! More details on the controls though have stil yet to be revealed.
"In regards to the visual elements themselves, here are the examples that Oblivion165 gave:
1. Floating flower petals that seem to be on a completely new layer than everything else.
2. At one point you open the door and a bunch of birds fly at the screen.
3. Battles and maps are now angled lower to show more of the map and give depth to everything, the first time you have a battle its quite clear that the screen is optimized for 3d effects."
Following the release of the fifth generation Pokémon games; Pokémon Black and White, several fansites such as Serebii.net and PokéBeach have received a Cease and Desist order from Nintendo of America inc. As such the sites listed have had to remove images such as in game screenshots to avoid prosecution.
The legitimacy of the letter recieved has yet to be confirmed via Nintendo however.
On August 15th, Pokémon Sunday showed us some incredible gameplay footage of all the new and exciting features which will be present in Pokémon Black and White.
This video showed us footage of the Pokéshifter, Triple battles, The Dream World and the incredible Pokémon Musical.
"We have uncovered some really awesome photos of giant sized plush to be released sometime this Fall. The plush feature the starters of Pokemon Black and White with Pokabu and Mijumaru at a whopping 50 centimeters/20 inches, and with Tsutaja being 60 centimeters/30 inches tall!"
"Photos of the August issue of CoroCoro magazine are now leaking on 2ch. They are photos of the "Master Document" that CoroCoro promised last month; however, the document does not contain any new Pokemon for Internet fans as all of them were revealed through trailers, leaks, television, etc. Translations are courtesy of Sabonea Masukippa. If there are any new photos, they'll be posted immediately, so check back once in a while!"
"Masuda and the development staff had players inside and outside of the company sample the game. Comments included:
The impressions have been good, says Matsuda, but desiging the Pokemon has been tough. Still, the GameFreak graphics staff say that they're hap..."
After Serebii.net and several other sites literally translated the チラーミィ to mean Chiramii, yesterday Gamefreak and Nintendo trademarked 2 official romanisations for the new Pokémon to feature in Pokémon Black and Pokémon White.
Chiramii is now romanised to Chillarmy, a named derived from "Chinchilla" and "army", however Munna has stayed the same.
Pokémon Sunday revealed today a New Legendary Pokémon for Nintendo's new games Pokémon Black and White. This little critter has been named Bikutini (although has been interpreted as Victini) and will be obtainable through a wifi event in which the players will recieve the "Liberty Ticket" - an event that will run from September 18 - October 18, 2010 in Japan.
However much to many fans disappointment, we were shown this Pokémon several weeks earlier during the trailer for the 13th Pokémon M...
"Perhaps this post isn’t anything more than me venting out my frustrations with people who refuse to understand why I would choose to play Pokemon over something like Call of Duty or World of Warcraft. Or to those who think they’ve outgrown the franchise that they used to love just because they got older."
"“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Is what I’m sure many of you Pokemon fans are thinking about right now. After all, the series has sold over ten million copies worldwide with just the past DS generation alone; but hear me out. The battle system is starting to get old. Yes, we have our EV training along with IV/nature Pokemon Breeding that gives our beloved franchise so much depth. There’s the new Pokemon Video Championships, in which I was nearly one of the finalists for the San Francis..."
Pokémon Sunday has just finished literally
airing their new episode update on Pokémon Black and Pokémon White. More information, and videos, featured in this episode. The videos were based on pictures revealed in the CoroCoro magazine and on the Japanese Official Pokémon Website.
In this month's preview section of the CoroCoro Magazine,
states that June 15th’s issue will feature a new exclusive Pokémon as well as information on how to evolve Zorua into Zoroark. As usual new screenshots, and Information should be present in next months issue as Well. A upcoming episode of Pokémon Sunday might feature the new Pokémon's silhouette.
"If you trade over the shiny Entei, Suicune, or Raikou from the the Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark movie ticket preorders, you can battle and capture a Level 25 Zoroark. During the battle, the Monster Fox Pokemon will take on the appearance of the Pokemon you traded over, and at several points it will revert to its original form (probably when weak). When it does, you can attempt to capture it."
"This week's cosplay babe of the week was a toughy. She's associated with one of the most popular video game franchises in the history of gaming, but more for the merchandising and cartoons than being a gym leader in red and blue. The moment we see Misty, we instantly say "gotta catch 'em all"."
"The video shows off the new 3D City. As you can see, the camera rotates as the player walks around the ocean road. While Pokémon Sunday did highlight a battle scene, the presenters only pointed at the still screenshot of Zoroark and Zorua fighting so fans who are hoping for animated battles will have to wait to see if their wish will be granted."
"The female character is wearing a pink and white hat, pink clothing, and has a ponytail; the male character is wearing blue clothing, has bushy hair, and is apparently wearing the same hat, but turned backwards. Judging by the screenshot where the clerk is talking to the female player in the Pokemon Center’s Poke Mart, it appears that characters will now speak through speech bubbles. In terms of graphics, the battle system seems to have been overhauled, showing the full back sprite of Zoroark..."
