Pokémon the Movie White: Victini & Zekrom, select theaters Dec. 3rd & 4th!

During their travels through the Unova region, Ash and his friends Iris and Cilan arrive in Eindoak Town, built around a castle called the Sword of the Vale. The three Trainers have come to compete in the town’s annual battle competition, and Ash manages to win with some unexpected help from the Mythical Pokémon Victini! It turns out Victini has a special bond with this place…

Long ago, the castle watched over the Kingdom of the Vale, and the partnership between Victini and the king protected the people who lived there. But that kingdom has since vanished into memory, leaving behind powerful relics and ancient Pokémon. Damon, a descendant of the People of the Vale, is trying to restore the lost kingdom with the help of his Gothitelle. His quest has taken him to the far reaches of the frozen tundra, and he has convinced the Legendary Pokémon Zekrom to help him seek his ideals!

Damon plans to trap Victini and harness its power, and as that plan gets under way, the entire town of Eindoak faces disaster! Can Ash awaken the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram to help him stop Damon and save Victini? The greatest adventure in Pokémon history approaches!

Well this is the first time since 2003 that a Pokémon movie will air in theaters. So far it seems they are only showing the White movie, and not the Black movie which aired in Japan during the same release. No word on whether the Black movie will be released in theaters as well. The movie will be in select theaters in the US on Dec. 3rd & 4th. Now to see if I can gain the courage to go watch it…I’m 22 years old lol.

Masuda to make special announcement on Pokemon Smash!

From Serebii:

TV Tokyo has posted the summary for the episode of Pokémon Smash, a variety show that covers all aspects of the franchise, due to air next week on Sunday 18th of September. In this summary, it mentions that Pokémon Game Creator, Junichi Masuda is set to appear on the show with a massive shock announcement. While it is possible that the announcement could be unrelated to a new game such as the reveal of Keldeo or the other new Pokémon, his announcements in the past similar to this have ended up being new games. This follows on from Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara hinting that there are more surprises coming this year. If it is a game announcement, it’s possible that the reveal of this game will be in CoroCoro, which is due any day now and/or in Nintendo’s special 3DS conference in Japan on Tuesday morning. We’ll bring more on this, including confirmation on the announcement as and when it comes.

Pokemon HD on WiiU: An article of ‘what if’?

What would you do if they had a Pokemon HD game on WiiU? Below is part of an article that talks about the possibility of an awesome Pokemon HD coming to WiiU. To read the full article, please follow the link at the bottom of this article. Would you buy a Pokemon HD on the WiiU? Comment below and let us know.




Pokémon is impossibly good. I mean to say that it’s impossible that a game first released in 1998 has kept me away from my Xbox 360/PS3, the pinnacles of gaming technology, for a solid week. By all conventions of technology, Pokémon should be nothing more than a fond memory. Like the briefcase cell-phone, the room-sized personal computer, and the VHS, Pokémon should have been defeated by newer technology a decade ago.

The story? Non-existent. A couple dozen lines of poorly-written dialog don’t constitute a story. The graphics? Sub-par. The gameplay? Like, three buttons and an off-switch. Pokémon is an anomaly. It shouldn’t exist in its current form. Yet it does, and does so very well. But what if Japanese developer Game Freak finally decides to stop proving wrong every convention of technology and instead starts utilizing the best hardware available to create a Pokémon game that the world has been waiting for?

August 2011 issue of Nintendo Power comes with Pokémon DVD

Surprisingly enough, the latest issue of Nintendo Power August 2011 subscriber edition came with a Pokémon DVD.

The DVD features a music video by the band Presidents of the United States of America called Can’t Stop (Catchin”Em All) which you can see here.

The first episode of the Pokémon Black & White anime series “In The Shadow of Zekrom” is also on this DVD. I guess that’s pretty cool, better than the terrible song above.

Pokémon Rumble Blast Trailer


This trailer pretty much uses the same footage from the Japanese version. However, I am glad we are getting a quick turnaround like this for a Pokémon game. 3 months after the Japanese release date (July 28) must be some kind of record. Can’t wait to play!

POKÉMON RUMBLE BLAST FOR NINTENDO 3DS SET TO LAUNCH OCT. 24

First Pokémon Game for Hand-Held Nintendo 3DS System Includes Fast-Paced Battles, Social Play Features and More Than 600 Pokémon

REDMOND, Wash., July 19, 2011 – Starting this fall, Pokémon™ fans will be able to experience the franchise’s battle-based action and adventure in a whole new dimension. Nintendo of America has announced an Oct. 24 launch date for Pokémon™ Rumble Blast, the first Pokémon game created exclusively for the hand-held Nintendo 3DS™ system. An action-packed Pokémon adventure in 3D without the need for special glasses, the game lets players battle against waves of opposing wind-up Toy Pokémon, connect and play with friends, and collect more than 600 Toy Pokémon.

As players advance through each stage in Pokémon Rumble Blast, their Toy Pokémon will face dozens of Toy Pokémon at once, creating fast and furious real-time battles. Players must also face off against giant Boss Pokémon, whose massive size and strength offer special challenges. Certain defeated Toy Pokémon can be added to the player’s team, and players may also collect special Toy Pokémon, each with its own unique stats and abilities. Players can collect more than 600 Toy Pokémon in all, including those from the recently released Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games. Players can quickly and easily switch between the various Toy Pokémon they collect throughout the game.

Pokémon Rumble Blast offers two ways for players to wirelessly connect with each other. Using a local wireless connection, they can enjoy a cooperative play mode that allows them to battle through levels together and more easily befriend defeated Toy Pokémon. Using the Nintendo 3DS StreetPass™ feature, they can challenge the Toy Pokémon of players they pass in their daily travels and view other players’ Mii™ characters in the game.

“Pokémon Rumble Blast delivers instant Pokémon gratification,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The controls are intuitive and simple enough for anyone to pick up and play, while new battle modes, more than 600 Toy Pokémon and social play opportunities offer deep experiences for longtime fans.”

Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

Well I think that’s the quickest turnaround ever for a Pokémon game. 3 months after the Japanese release date is pretty rare for this series. Oh well, at least it won’t be Japan only.
