Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition - Coverage Day 2

As I have now received my copy, as well as Coronis, we are able to continue to play through the new game, Pokémon + Nobunagas's Ambition. While we're still playing through the narrative, we'll be making updates to the pages as we go. If there's anything you wish to see regarding this game, let us know and we'll try and get it up as soon as possible
I have updated the preliminary Area Listing which will be continually updated so keep checking back
Edit @ 09:32: Created a preliminary Pokémon Listing page
Edit @ 11:21; Once you have defeated the Pointy Rock, Poison Fang and Shadow Nations, three more nations are unlocked. The Matama Nation(Matama マタマ), the Fukushi Nation(Fukushi フクシ) and the Blizzard Nation (Fubuki フブキ)
In addition to this, the password to obtain Audino has been revealed to be セ6ゼチ86ヤヒ and to obtain Pikachu: メキト7ア8オト
Edit @ 12:09: Small interesting note. The Ranse region is shaped like the Pokémon Arceus

Edit @ 13:13: Once you have beaten the Matama Nation, Fukushi Nation and Blizzard nation, the final 17th nation appears, the Ryu Nation, led by Nobunaga
Edit @ 13:45: Updated the preliminary Area Listing again
Edit @ 14:30: After you have defeated Nobunaga, a new area opens up in Dragon Nation which contains the legendary Pokémon: Arceus
Edit @ 14:54: Once Arceus has been befriended, you need to defeat Nobunaga again, but this time he uses his Rayquaza. Defeat him and you end the first part of the narrative. Next comes the post-game content
Edit @ 15:04: In the post-game, you are restricted to the Episodes focusing on the other characters. All your stats for Pokémon collected remain but the main overworld is no longer accessible
Edit @ 15:36: When you start off the post game, there are 8 episodes to play. When you play an episode and finish it, multiple episodes will be unlocked. Your Collection gets added to in each episode so you can still get all the Pokémon and leaders, however as the storyline is done, these episodes are all that's left. There appear to be 33 in total, each showcasing a special Bushou, many of whom you didn't use in the main narrative.
Edit @ 15:53: In the episodes, you follow the adventures of the Bushou and have to battle in a certain amount of nations. There are five stars for difficulty and this shows how long they are. We'll provide a full list of the episodes as soon as possible
Edit @ 18:10: Have all regions within the Area Listing. Will go through, add what is missing and flesh it out over the next day or so
Edit @ 19:08: Created a preliminary page detailing the post-game content, specifically the Special Episodes
Edit @ 20:28: Added more episodes to the episode page
Edit @ 20:37: Another Password has been revealed. This password gives access to the Pokémon Dratini. The password is: キエメヒメカ0ド
Edit @ 22:52: As some have requested, I have created a page detailing the methods to befriend both Bushou & Pokémon

Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition - Coverage Day 1

Our friend Coronis has received his copy of the new game Pokémon + Nobunaga's Ambition and has started to feed us information about the game. Over the next few days, we will uncover and detail every part of the game as we discover all the aspects within including Pokémon, areas, the special episodes and more. To start us off, Coronis has given some simple bits of information from his first couple of hours of playthough
There are around 199 Pokémon and 200 different Bushous (essentially trainers) to encounter and befriend within the game
There is a Pokédex style system which registers each of these Pokémon and Bushou.
Once you claim the city, the areas within it open up for you to find the Pokémon and Bushou
Passwords are locked until you have defeated the area
Each city has the ability of having up to six Bushou assigned to it. These can be changed at will
The amount of Bushou and Pokémon you can befriend depends upon how many cities of which you are in control
Each Pokémon can only have one possible move rather than a selection. Abilities make a return within the game with similar effects to the main games
Edit: We also have a list of the first 10 area names and will be creating Area pages shortly
Hajime Nation - (Hajime Nation) - ハジメ
Flame Nation - (Kaen Nation) - カエン
Fist Nation - (Kobushi Nation) - コブシ
Earth Nation - (Daichi Nation) - ダイチ
Plant Nation - (Aoba Nation) - アオバ
Spring Nation - (Izumi Nation) - イズミ
Pupa Nation - (Sanagi Nation) - サナギ
Tram Nation - (Shiden Nation) - シデン
Wing Nation - (Tsubasa Nation) - ツバサ
Dragon Nation - (Ryu Nation) - リュウ
Gem Nation - (Gem Nation) - ゲンム
Pointy Rock Nation - (Kigan Nation) - キガン
Poison Fang Nation - (Dokuga Nation) - ドクガ
Shadow Nation - (Yasha Nation) - ヤシャ
Edit: As you get into the game, you first get attacked by Hideyoshi's squad in the Hajime nation. Defeat them and you gain access to the nation areas where you can raise your Pokémon in battle against wild Pokémon. After that, you have the opportunity to go to the Flame Nation to bring the battle to Hideyoshi. Once beaten, Keiji will appear.
Edit @ 19:53: Each of the various areas within each nation can increase in level as time goes on allowing for stronger opponents to arrive. Edit @ 20;34: After obtaining the Spring, Flame & Plant nations, three more nations open up, the Fist, Tram and Pupa nations. You also learn about Nobunaga's role in leading the region
Edit @ 21:49; Once you have defeated the Fist, Tram and Pupa nations, you unlock the Earth Nation and the Gem Nation
Edit @ 22:35: Created a preliminary Area Listing which will be continually updated over the next few days
Edit @ 00:43: Defeating either Gem Nation or Earth Nation will get you both nations and both trainers Kenshin and Shingen. This then unlocks four new areas; Wing Nation, PointyRock Nation, Poison Fang Nation and Shadow Nation. There is a tree in some areas that boosts up the power of your Bushou
We'll bring more as the days progress and I get my own copy this weekend so keep checking back

Pokémon - Kyurem VS The Sacred Swordsman Keldeo & Meloetta's Sparkling Rectial

The official site has updated with some further details of the movie. It updated with a basic plotline of both the movie, and the Meloetta short
For the movie: Ash and Co. head toward Rooshan/Roushan. While on a train passing through the mountains, Ash spots an injured Pokemon he's never seen before, collapsed. This is the phantom Pokemon, Keldeo who is said to be the successor to Cobalion and Co., the masters of the Sacred Sword who protect the world. At that moment, Kyurem appears and begins attacking, changing into Black Kyurem & White Kyurem in doing so. This blocks Ash & co's path to Keldeo. Ash and co. just manage to escape from Kyurem's pursuit, by the skin of their teeth. The battle rages between Kyurem, chasing Keldeo, and the train and hot-air balloon in the sky. Can Keldeo, Ash and co. overcome this danger?
As for the Meloetta short: "Meloetta, the phantom Pokemon, begins its recital when the full moon rises over Whispering Stone. The elegant dance and the mysterious song resonates with Pikachu and friends...wait? What? A sudden sandstorm. The Melody Berries, that were producing music, have been blown away! The recital is in danger of finishing too soon. Pikachu, friends! Go find those Melody Berries!."
