The director of the game hints at difficult post game content. Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! have been disappointing a whole lot of long time Pokemon fans due to some of their more controversial decisions. Some of these, such as the gating of gym battles behind you having the Pokemon you need to win, or reducing Pokemon catching to a simple mini game like in Pokemon GO, have all ...[Read More]
Nintendo releases a new video all about the newest Pokemon, Meltan, and the fresh footage seems to tease a potential new form for the franchise’s new creature.
Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures—whom you may recognize as the three creators of Pokemon, as well as the three companies that comprise The Pokemon Company—have apparently filed a brand new, rather intriguing new trademark application. As Japanese Nintendo reports, the three companies have filed a trademark application in Japan for something called—stay with me here—Monpoke. Yes, Monpoke. That n...[Read More]
Zeraora is the final new Pokemon that will be available to the seventh generation of the games, closing out the Sun/Moon era. We’ve known of his existence since earlier in the year, but so far, he’s been unobtainable, short of you hacking your game. Now, however, you will finally be able to get your hands on one—The Pokemon Company has announced that Zeraora will be obtainable at GameStop stores i...[Read More]
Pokemon is currently the world’s biggest media franchise. I want you to take a moment to understand that—it’s not just the biggest video game franchise in the world (cumulatively, that would actually be Mario, albeit Mario has a roughly fifteen year headstart), but the biggest media franchise in the world, period. That means it’s bigger than Star Wars, Harry Potter, and even the MCU. And it almost...[Read More]

Speaking to IGN, a Nintendo representative confirmed that motion controls and physical gestures aren’t needed in handheld mode. “Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! do not require pla...[Read More]
With the true Pokemon 8 that people have been waiting for since its announcement last year due out next year, this year’s Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! should have just been a nice filler game, a comfy throwback to the series’ early days, and an attempt at simplifying the admittedly bloated nature of the recent games. However, it’s been met with a lot of pushback from fans—an alm...[Read More]
Game Freak and The Pokemon Company promised that Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! would introduce players to a brand new Pokemon—presumably an eighth generation Pokemon, similar to how Pokemon Ranger introduced players to Phione and Manaphy, from the then upcoming Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. We now know what this new Pokemon will be, after some dataminers stumbled upon it a few days ...[Read More]
Nintendo releases a brand new trailer for Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee that shines a spotlight on the legendary birds, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos.
Game Freak may be hard at work on the upcoming Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, not to mention Pokemon 8 for next year, but it sounds like they are also working on something else entirely. Something not Pokemon. Today, during the Nintendo Direct, Nintendo unveiled a brand new RPG from Game Freak, with the working title of Town (I really hope they change that name, it’s so generic),...[Read More]
Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have shared a brand new trailer for the upcoming Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! The new trailer focuses on showcasing “secret techniques”, which are field moves that your starter Pokemon can learn, and which will be taking the place of Hidden Moves (HMs) from the earlier games. These Secret Techniques don’t take up move slots, and can be used on th...[Read More]
