Sword & Shield: May Recap

Sword & Shield: May Recap

Hello Pokemonsters!    It's been a long three months since the first Sword & Shield trailer dropped. Since then, we've had very little information and are finally entering info season where reveals will be a lot more common. The first of these reveals will happen TONIGHT - at the Pokemon 2019 Press Conference; which will cover a range of topics of interest to Pokemon fans. This conference will take place at 9pm EDT tonight but is not expected to reveal major details on Sword &

A Return to the World of Pokemon

Hello Pokémonsters!      It's been a over a year since I've updated this blog and partially that comes down to a lack of new information during the follow-up years of each generation. I hope you all enjoyed Ultra Sun & Moon, and the new Let's Go series. But now, we're starting the hype train up again for a brand new generation.      A 7 minute Pokemon-specific direct has been announced for Pokemon Day tomorrow. It will launch at 6am PST / 9am EST / 2

#USUM: Rainbow Rocket, Ultra Wormholes & The Battle Agency

Hello. Little Mewtwonsters      A LOT has happened today and there are now THREE trailers we need to discuss as well as other little titbits from the Pokemon website. One of these trailers is in English and two are in Japanese but you really need to view all three of them to have a grip of what's going on. I'll link them below so watch them and then meet me after the jump!      Ok, so now that we're done with that. Where do we beg

#USUM: Corocoro Reveal Trailer

Hello, Little Luranti   Today, the Pokemon company revealed another trailer for Ultra Sun and Moon. It basically just recaps - and shows in more depth - the new information revealed in Corocoro's leak a few days ago, but since we haven't yet talked about that, have a look below and then see me after the jump! (The Hi Jump... Kick)   Ok, so there's only a little bit to talk about here. Firstly, Necrozma's new forms are confirmed - as leaked - to be the same typ

#USUM: The Last Six Weeks

Good evening, my fabulous little Pokemonsters.     It's been a long time since I've done a post on this blog; roughly six weeks. It's certainly not for a lack of news either, I've just been so busy personally, that I had no time to update things. But after today's massive information reveals, I have little choice other than to make all of you aware of the reveals from today and over the last six weeks. So get your asses in gear, strap in (not strap-on) and get ready for the

#USUM: August Recap

Good Evening, Little Eclipses   As the sun and the moon crossover, there's no better time to recap the events of the past week involving the newest set of Pokemon games; Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. There have been three different "trailers" revealed over the weekend; all with different information (and a lot of hidden secrets) that you may not have noticed. Firstly, let's look at the biggest trailer:     The above trailer was released first on the Friday. The

The Rock-Type Tourney

Welcome, Pokemonsters, to one entry of The Type Tourneys blog series. This series is a theoretical series based on the idea of an in-game Friendly Competition where only Pokemon of one given type can compete. Each entry in the series will detail a general overview of the type and my predictions for what the main competitors and top tier threats in the tier. You guys can then discuss with me and tell me if you think I'm right, wrong or missed something crucial. More information on the series can

The Type Tourneys: The Series

Hello, my fellow Pokemonsters!    As we wait for Ultra Sun and Moon, let me tell you about a feature of Pokemon Sun and Moon. It's called "Friendly Competitions". One of the features I forgot about for a while as it wasn't in effect immediately, and came out later with a PGL update. The PGL is known as the Pokemon Global Link where you connect your game to through Festival Plaza and it keeps records of your playthrough and your participation in the official Online Competitions (s

#USUM: Dusk Form Lycanroc

Hello, you smelly Pokemonsters   Today we were blessed with a few announcements. The cover of Corocoro was revealed. While it was originally dismissed as not relevant, it later seemed like - on closer inspection - there was a new Lycanroc form on the cover which looked like MIdday Form, with green eyes, and a red body. Then, we were informed that Pokenchi would be airing at 8am JST with the world premier of Ultra Sun and Moon news - or more properly a "shocking announcement" - wh

Pokemon Direct 6.6.17 | New Games Announced

Welcome back, my pokesisters.     It's been a good few months since I've last talked to you, and in that time we've had irrelevant news about Pokemon events and movies, different playthroughs of Pokemon games and endless discussion about the cutscenes in Pokemon Sun and Moon. But today was different; we were shown a Pokemon Direct by Nintendo's Youtube channel; which announced new Pokemon games on different platforms. You can watch the Direct at the link below:

Pokemon Bank | OUT NOW (Sun & Moon)

Pokemon Bank has finally been updated. From this point on - although maintenance is currently underway - Pokemon that are taken from prior games will be legal. In addition, Poke Transporter is updated too to help with the transfers from one gen to another. It should be noted that as maintenance is currently underway, it's not clear - to what extent - bank is compatible with every other game at this moment. What we do know however, is that a datamine was done recently of the update and showed tha

#LetsPlay: The Series

Welcome all! This blog post will be a directional network for all my Let's Plays on this blog! A "Let's Play" is just what it sounds like; someone playing a game. A lot of these Let's Plays are done online; particularly by Poketubers; in a video format. However, my Let's Plays are a bit different. Instead of a visual video format; they are done in a story format. Old viewers of my blog will remember the Rising Ruby series - which was postponed after a while. I intend to - at one point - bring ba

It's a brand new era and a brand new chapter for this untold story. To sum the story up, I used to collect Pokemon Trading Cards as a child until I was around eleven and then sold them. However, with the success of the franchise this year, I've been able to get my niece and - to some extent - nephew hooked on the series. And I intend to furthe
