Pokémon - New Pokémon?

Following the surprise appearance of what may be a new Pokémon and/or form, more people have been able to see the movie, Hoopa & The Clash of Ages and due to this, thanks to another friend of mine, we have a far more accurate sketch of it now which differs slightly from the original ones we had yesterday. It includes elements that were lost previously on it including a red stomach. Of course, there is still likely to be some discrepencies between the sketch and the actual design but this is a close approximation. Also, the massive Pokémon shown in CoroCoro that's also in the trailer has pulsating hexagons in the trailer around its body. It's not currently known when these Pokémon/forms will be completely revealed with official art and screenshots, but when it is, we'll post it here as soon as it comes.

Legends of its avarice tell how it once carried off an entire castle to gain the treasure hidden within. It is said to be able to seize anything it desires with its six rings and six huge arms.

Pokémon - New Pokémon?

Today in Japan, the latest Pokémon movie, Hoopa & The Clash of Ages, opened and within it, according to our envoy and close friend to the site, Gin who just saw the movie, there was something new appearing in it. She describes it as being bright green with one eye larger than the other. During the trailer for next years movie, its eye looked through the O of the word Pokémon and then it blobbed about. This was then followed by the large new Pokémon silhouette revealed on July 12th. Gin has kindly provided a few possible sketches of this Pokémon, but it is likely to differ greatly. It of course could still be an alternate form, a weird separated part of a new form of an existing Pokémon or something completely new, but it remains to be seen. We'll bring full details of this as and when it comes so keep checking back.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon

A load of new information and screenshots have been released about Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. Information is currently being translated but we have added the new screenshots to our pre-release screenshot gallery which can be found by clicking the link.
Connection Orbs have replaced the previous Discussion Board. As you make friends, you can do requests. This is seen with the web of Pokémon seen during previous trailers. You can even find Legendary Pokémon through this. When you have completed a task for a Pokémon, it opens up paths for more tasks, and more and more and so forth.
You can use the Majin Lamp item to summon Hoopa into a dungeon. It can be either form and can call in various Legendary Pokémon as assistants
07:30: Some character details have been revealed, too. As revealed at the Treehouse Live event at E3, Pancham and Shelmet are bullies at a local Pokémon school, often picking on Goomy. Deerling is popular among the class, but is very blunt. Espurr is an intelligent student at the school. Simipour is the principal of the school in the town and seems to understand the children. Watchog is the vice principal. Audino is the doctor who heals you, is often serious but ends things in a joke and Farfetch'd is a serious teacher.
15:25: Created preliminary pages about the Connection Orb and the Majin Lamp

Satoru Iwata

It is with a heavy heart that today we learned that Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, unfortunately passed away on July 11th. The man's legacy lives through the Pokémon series as he was responsible for more than just supporting Pokémon, but he helped compress Gold & Silver to allow for the Kanto region to be included and he ported & recoded the battle engine over to Pokémon Stadium himself within a week. He will be sorely missed.
