New Pokémon to be Revealed Next Week?

The first details of next week's Pokémon Sunday episode have been revealed, due to air on May 9th JST. The episode is called Baba Takes On Battle Practice! & New Pokemon - XX (馬場隊員がバトル修行に挑む!&新ポケモンの××) which indicated that a New Pokémon shall be revealed. However, Pokémon Sunday very rarely reveals things first so it may be a misinterpretation. We could also just get a sihlouette. In addition to this, yaminokame has informed me that in the variety show part, a person called Baba lost his Rayquaza in a battle and he theorises that the new Pokémon is a new Pokémon in his team, plus the synopsis of the episode makes no mention of an announcement. We're currently unsure as to the likelihood of either possibility but as always, the prospects of brand new Pokémon are exciting which is why I'm informing you like this but it is still best not to get your hopes up. We'll bring details and confirmation either way as soon as we can so be sure to check back.

Once again going into the 4th Generation Competitive Battling strategies, we are covering our one-hundred & sixty-third Pokémon. Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced within the first generation. It was created with the D.N.A. of another Pokémon. Although its body was made by science, the scientists failed to give it a warm heart so it became vicious. It's usually motionless to conserve energy. So here it is, the one hundred & sixty-third featured Pokémon, Mewtwo.

Moveset Checker Update

Yesterday, Arty2 and I went about and did the long awaited update for the Moveset Checker. This feature on the site allows you to input the moves you may want in a Pokémon and it will output the Pokémon that are capable of using the move combination. Previously, the Moveset Checker was only up to date with the moves from Diamond & Pearl. However, we have updated it with Platinum moves, HeartGold & SoulSilver moves & egg moves, the Move Tutor moves and special moves that are on special Pokémon such as those given to coincide with the movie release and known by Pokémon given through games such as Pokémon Ranger.

Pokémon Black & Pokémon White - Pokémon Sunday Reveal

Pokémon Sunday has just aired in Japan and has shown the first footage of the games; Pokémon Black and Pokémon White. This footage was essentially footage based upon the screenshots that were released on the official site and in CoroCoro over the past week. However, as it was footage, we got a few new insights.

Legendary Beast Black & White Compatibility confirmed

As we reported on Thursday, the Legendary Beasts to be given in Japan this summer are to hold a special secret. Due to our knowledge of HeartGold & SoulSilver, we concluded that this was in Pokémon Black & White. The pre-ordering for tickets for the movie began today in Japan and yaminokame got his hands on his. With the tickets came a pamphlet that stated that the legendary beasts do unlock something within Pokémon Black and Pokémon White. What they unlock is still unknown, but this does confirm that Pokémon Black and White will be compatible for trade in some way with Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold & SoulSilver. Whether this will be similar to the Pal Park in those games or the Time Machine method from Gold, Silver & Crystal remains to be seen. We'll post more information as and when it comes.

As we know, the new games are said to be revealled in the next issue of CoroCoro, due out on the 15th of this month. However, the first details about the Pokémon Sunday episode airing on April 11th state that they're going to reveal the games in a "shock announcement" in the episode. Normally, we get CoroCoro leaks before or around the 11th so it'll be curious to see which releases the news first. We'll keep you updated the second the news is announced so keep checking back.
