Suicune & Gardevoir have been confirmed as a fighter in Pokkén Tournament
Pikachu has also been confirmed as playable
Rather than using a fighting stick, this game uses a controller with a standard D-Pad and BAYX button configuration
You can use support Pokémon to help you out in various matches. The field is full 3D and allows for fighting and avoiding as you see fit. When you get close to a Pokémon, then it will tighten up.
You press the L button to activate your Support Pokémon. You can also activate various powerful moves including Mega Evolution in combat.
The backgrounds of the stages are active, with Pokémon and trainers moving around and interacting, such as Volcarona following a cyclist
There are various modes in the game: Single Play, National Battle and In-Store Battle. There's also a Tutorial to play through
There are location tests going on in Japan on January 30th, 31st and February 1st. It costs 100¥ to play. Namco Umeda Store and Maco Razona Kawasaki will have online play available
Edit @ 13:15: 200 Bandai/Namco Passport cards will be given to players each day once they fill out the gameplay survey. Lucario on the 30th, Gardevoir on the 31st, Pikachu on February 1st. Machamp card will also be given at the Japan Amusement Expo on February 14th to the 500 players who fill out the survey
The buttons are as follows: L activates Support, R Guards, A uses Pokémon attacks, B jumps, X is a weak attack and Y is a strong attack. Using the D-Pad and the buttons gives you various different moves. Fill a gauge to unleash Resonance Gauge for extra damage and Burst Attacks (and Mega Evolution)

The level of detail is indeed gorgeous, one sometimes forgets that pokemon like Suicune and Lucario are indeed covered in fur. I never thought we'd get art like this from an official pokemon game. Not to say I'd necessarily want all the games to look like this, there is a special beauty in the more simple artwork of the main games, but all the same this is a welcome change.
I apologize for ignoring this for too long, but go here for the details on Pokkén Tournament so far.
A new version of a popular spin-off game, a new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon has been announced-
A new game has been announced. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (ポケモン超不思議のダンジョン) has been announced for release on the Nintendo 3DS in Autumn 2015 in Japan, the Winter of 2015 in North America and Early 2016 in Europe.
Players can look forward to even greater, randomly created dungeons that change each time they enter. In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, players will battle alongside Legendary and Mythical Pokémon to save the world in a sweeping tale of adventure and mystery.
I am excited for this, hopefully we'll get more options on choosing the Pokémon we turn into, instead of there just being four like the previous 3DS MD game.
But why is it only the 3DS main series games that get released on the same month and year? I wish the spin-off games had got that same treatment as well.
And yes, I'm still upset that they haven't made a 3D Pokémon Ranger game. I mean come on, it was one of the popular spin-offs along with Mystery Dungeon.

I actually watched that video and I agree with it. I've thought about this stuff for a long time myself, and I've come to the conclusion that the only possible explanation for multiple versions of the same game is exactly multiple universes. Every single copy of any Pokémon game in the world takes place in its own universe. That's pretty cool.
Of course, none of that still explains why Sycamore acted like Mega Evolution only exists in the Kalos region, since XY takes place in the same timeline as ORAS and all future remakes where Mega Pokémon exist.
(Haven't we already discussed this in the ORAS thread?)
The first images from CoroCoro have leaked and are showing some details about the upcoming game, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. The first of these images contains the first look at the special 3DS theme you get for preordering the title. It also reveals the first artwork and confirms Mega Evolution's presence in the game. It also confirms Hoopa Unbound's presence within the game
As someone who never played the Pokémon Games until recently - despite watching the anime since Day One - this is exciting news. Though, I wonder if they'll be compatible with current gen games. Obviously, the first gen's mechanics were totally different, so I assume not.

Following the reveal in The Professionals 3 years ago, the detective Pikachu game has finally been revealed as Detective Pikachu ~ Birth of a New Duo~. It will be available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop in Japan on February 3rd 2016 for 1,500 yen. It'll be cheaper for 1,200 yen from January 27th 2016 to February 29th 2016. It stars a "smug, talking, loveable, detective pikachu"
This game requires 800MB of space (6,400 blocks) to download and is listed on the official site as "Cinematic Adventure Game", with the official Nintendo site also listing it as a puzzle solving Cinematic Adventure Game. It takes place in Rhyme City and you the human character called Tim Goodman who has come to the city for a currently unknown reason. When he meets with Pikachu, the story begins. It is a 1 Player game and has no online or communication features.
Preloading is now available on the Japanese Nintendo 3DS for the reduced price of 1,200¥. In addition to that, we have the first direct feed screenshots which have been added to our Detective Pikachu Pre-Release Screenshot Page
A European Trademark site has added new listings today for two new possible game titles, complete with logos. These logos are Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. It is not currently known if these are to be the games revealed in tomorrow's Pokémon Direct or if this is just a placeholder like many game titles that have come before such as Pokémon Brown, Pokémon Amethyst and so forth. We'll bring more news as it comes. Please note, this is currently unconfirmed.
Edit @ 20:01: Various domains have been registered by Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe for these games in various different languages, all of which currently redirect to the official site, Pokemon.com. This doesn't confirm this news yet, but does add possibilities.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Sorry, it's just that after SM021 and M21, I know Mima's gonna be three for three when it comes to terribly mishandling emotional moments.
Feb 9, 2019 18:50:46 GMT -4
Donkarasu: But at least you're fine with episode 79, because you've never said anything about it.
Feb 9, 2019 19:02:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That was a lucky case of not bad but the dub did better.
Feb 9, 2019 19:09:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Masafumi Mima said he got goosebumps when selecting the music for a certain episode and even the voice actors were brought to tears, I'm certain it was indeed episode 108 that he was talking about: twitter.com/Sunma47/status/1073896011758587909
Feb 9, 2019 19:12:11 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That's fine and good for them. Mima's just unfortunately given me lots of reasons not to trust his music placement skills (actually, lack thereof).
Feb 9, 2019 22:39:49 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Looks like I'm right not to have believed him when he promised I'd cry at the onscreen events. But I can give him a bit of credit: it turned out better than SM021 and M21 did, so that's a relief.
Feb 10, 2019 10:26:25 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: It ended up with the same results SM079JP did: a "well, okay, that happened. Can't wait for the dub to improve it" kind of feeling.
Feb 10, 2019 10:27:06 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: BTW, I watched it in the first place just because of how cocky Mima was about it.
Feb 10, 2019 18:07:31 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I'm just going to say it now: I will not be happy when TPCI fills the silent moments with music. Silence is needed especially in tear-jerking episodes as it helps set the mood for a depressing atmosphere (it's hard to describe, so I tried my best).
Feb 11, 2019 5:46:51 GMT -4
Donkarasu: It's more Reina Ueda's voice acting as Mao (I can't believe anyone who thinks she wasn't amazing) and the dialogue and less so the background music used which makes those scenes so heart breaking and caused me and others to cry or tear up.
Feb 12, 2019 10:04:15 GMT -4
Donkarasu: While I said I wasn't going to talk about the whole controversy around Vic Mignogna, I do want to say one thing about it and that's, it kind puts me off anything to do with Funimation, especially due to other voice actors being involved in this.
Feb 17, 2019 8:44:25 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: That is my biggest grief behind it. They honestly shouldn't of said anything at all, rather than outright lashing at fans that disagree with them.
Feb 17, 2019 19:44:19 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Regarding Sean Schemmel being the latest person to be a part of it, that causes me to say this: Even if you're not a fan of Masako Nozawa's Goku voice, at least she's a kind woman who respects fans and has never caused any sort of controversy.
Feb 18, 2019 13:03:11 GMT -4
Donkarasu: And for the record, this is not the only time Schemmel did/said something which caused some outrage.
Feb 18, 2019 13:04:46 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Yeah, I'm aware. His past sins have come to light and while I was able to tolerate a lot of it, his latest episode was were the line in the sand has been crossed. Cancelled Funimation account as well.
Feb 18, 2019 23:00:57 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: If he's gonna be an arrogant butt that insults the hands that feed him, then he'll have to accept the consequences of it and hopefully that'll stick. Still yeah. I was never annoyed with Nozawa's Goku voice and she is really nice.
Feb 18, 2019 23:03:51 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I mean, Goku's supposed to sound like a disrespectful county hic (remember his inspiration from Journey of the West which the Monkey King routinely pissed off the gods)
Feb 18, 2019 23:05:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: and I think most complaints stem from just different tastes in vocals from us overseas. I honestly wonder why people make a really big deal out of it. Not everyone is Norio Wakamoto
