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.

Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.

ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.
Mar 31, 2019 21:30:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was

ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.
Apr 1, 2019 23:32:17 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
