April Fools Cometh

As I do every year at around this time, I feel compelled to warn you that as April Fools Day is fast approaching, a lot of the less reputable sites across the web will be making fakes, undoubtedly convincing fakes, to try and fool you into believing they are real. As we're heading towards a new generation of Pokémon, chances are a lot of "new" ones will be "discovered" in the coming week. Here at Serebii.net, we do not like to do things that generally mislead the public, so you can be sure that if any news is posted here, it will be 100% authentic.

Minor Dungeon Explorers of the Sky News

The official site recently added a new trailer for the upcoming game Explorers of the Sky. In this trailer, various features were shown, most of which we already knew about. However, some new details were brought forward in this trailer. Firstly, there is a new overworld area called Shaymin Village. This village helps progress the new addition to the story and features many Shaymin within it. Presumably, Pelipper will take you there once you reach a certain point, but this is not clear as of yet.
We also have further clarification on the item transferral mentioned in CoroCoro two weeks ago. When you send one of the species-specific items from Explorers of Time or Darkness to Explorers of the Sky, the item doesn't multiply per-say, but rather it upgrades so that you get the stronger of the species item, which you would normally have to exchange twice in-game for.
Also, of note, for players with Japanese Wiis, a demo of Explorers of the Sky is now available in the Nintendo Channel.

Who's That Pokémon

Once again going into the 4th Generation Competitive Battling strategies, we are covering our one-hundred & third Pokémon. This Pokémon is the only fossil Pokémon whom does not evolve after being revived. It has ferociously sharp teeth and claws and was regarded as the prehistoric king of the sky. It can only be obtained by finding the Old Amber item and restoring it into Aerodactyl at the Pewter City & Oreburgh City museums. So here it is, the one hundred & third featured Pokémon, Aerodactyl.

Until Next Time, See Ya
