Pokémon - NHK Reveal

Within the programme on the Japanese channel NHK, called The Professionals, in a special episode focusing on The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekaz Ishihara, a new game was showcased. They first showcased some images of a beta version of a sequel to Pokémon Trozei. In this, they showed a meeting discussing the various issues with the 3DS notably the top and bottom screen being different sizes, and the intent for it to be a download title. It's currently unclear on the status of this game. Still more to come so keep checking back
Edit @ 13:33: They're working on a detective game featuring Pikachu as a partner. This game has an alleged development cycle of 2 years, with release expected in 2015. A rare Pikachu is said to be the enemy within this game but they can't see people liking it. The game is said to feature a special Blue Pikachu, which talks. The Pikachu is being controlled via motion capture and facial recognition
All this information is from early development, so it is probable that it will change should the game come out

Pokémon X & Y - Coverage Day 1

With many parts of Spain getting their copies tomorrow, Japan getting copies tomorrow and retailers across the world sending copies of the game out, it would be remiss of us to hold off until launch when so many of you hunger for information. As such, our usual discoveries shall begin. As usual, I'll be posting the main focal points here, while more in-depth details go on the discovery thread on the forums (including some details I won't post here). However, due to the worldwide launch and the irregularities that have occurred in the past two weeks across the internet, it will be slightly different. Out of respect for Nintendo, we shall not be posting story spoilers until after Saturday. If you want to remain unspoiled, do not click the spoiler tag, nor visit the XY section until you have your game. We hope to have preliminary Pokédex information up this weekend so keep checking back
First off, I have updated the New Pokémon Page with details on all the Pokémon and direct feed pictures for most of them, with more pictures to come.

Pokémon X & Y - Download Pokémon

The official site has updated and given details on how to receive event Pokémon. This process runs similar to previous games with you selecting Mystery Gift and then selecting the appropriate option. However, the details have provided a new method of obtaining event Pokémon. In addition to Local Wireless, Nintendo Network Download and InfraRed, the game also lists a new method of downloading: Serial Codes. Presumably this will run akin to the Serial Codes on the Global Link within Generation V. You can also have up to 24 Wonder Cards before having to make room for a new event.
Events are also locked to the console & game's region, rather than the game's language so if you're playing a Japanese game in English, you will only receive Japanese events but Japanese games in English cannot receive North American events and vice versa. As a reminder, the Torchic event will be live online for all regions from October 12th to January 15th.
