The new Nintendo Direct conference, held by Satoru Iwata, has revealed Junichi Masuda and GameFreak's brand new game, Rhythm Hunter: HarmoKnight. Normally, this wouldn't warrant a post but this game, coming in Japan this September, is a 2D platformer where you have to go through levels collecting items and defeating enemies to the beat. It's worthy of note that there is a special Pokémon level within it, where the standard battle theme plays as you go through a level with Reshiram & Zekrom in the background. Nothing else Pokémon based seems to be within this game so we won't be covering the game

Pokémon - Lowest PokéBall Levels

As the fifth generation of games doesn't allow for easy checking during trades, and even then, it can be hard to see whether or not the Pokémon you received is at a lower level than is actually possible. To that end, with thanks to TTEchidna for bringing the concept to me, I have created a new section of the site which lists all of the Pokémon and what level they can be in each of the 31 different types of PokéBall and how to get them at that level, so that you can confirm that they have legitimately been sent. This covers details from all three of the current compatible generations of games from Ruby & Sapphire up to Black 2 & White 2. Click the image to go to the section

Today, we are covering a Pokémon introduced in the first generation. Seeing its swinging pendulum can induce sleep in three seconds, even in someone who just woke up. When it is very hungry, it puts humans it meets to sleep, then it feasts on their dreams. Always holding a pendulum that it swings at a steady rhythm, it causes drowsiness in anyone nearby. It carries a pendulum-like device. There once was an incident in which it took away a child it hypnotized. When it locks eyes with an enemy, it will use a mix of PSI moves such as Hypnosis and Confusion. . So here it is, the eighty-third entry, Hypno.
