The concept of the guys at Namco Bandai's Tekken coming together with The Pokémon Company/Nintendo to build a Pokémon version of Tekken is, on paper, so insane sounding that despite multiple indications over the past year that exactly that was happening, even the most open minded of us found it hard to commit to the theory.
So it probably doesn't really add up that I would espouse that the upcoming, actually being made, game could possibly be the best thing the series has done since the height of the original launch. But I am.
Some of the wide, wide range of Pokémon today. [Source]
Last week it was revealed that Japanese Monthly Famitsu would be making a shocking announcement. Said announcement has today been made in the form of Pokken Tournament, a fighting game closely related to the Tekken series.
The game is being handled by Bandai Namco and has involvement from Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada. Currently the game has only been confirmed for Japan where it will be released next year as an arcade game, but hopefully a port to the Wii U or 3DS isn't out of the question if the game ever makes it outside of Japan.
The president of the Pokémon Company was asked a question by viewers about why they decided to do an arcade game, his answer made it sounds as though the intention is to have it in arcades first and then release it on console after awhile. Oddly enough the official Pokémon YouTube channel for outside of Japan has also put up a trailer for...
Once upon a time, in the depths of the late 90s, Pokémon and Mr Monopoly had a mutually beneficial baby and it's name was, predictably, Monopoly: Pokémon Edition. It was fairly succesful, and has since gone on to be an actually quite expensive piece of Pokémon tat for collectors.
Following on from the announcement of a Legend of Zelda version of Monopoly, however, Monopoly and Pokémon are back together and riding the nostalgia train all the way back to the 90s with Monopoly: Pokémon Kanto Edition. This time, instead of the generic anime artwork, however, the official artwork from the Fire Red and Leaf Green games takes centre-stage - but just as before,...
It has been announced that a special edition of Monthly Famitsu will stream on NicoNico and reveal a surprising Pokémon announcement on the 26th of August.
It's currently unclear what the announcement will be, but we do know that the president of the Pokémon company Tsunekazu Ishlhara will be a guest on the stream. Right now the announcement could be a game, anime, or a range of other things. We can't pin it down to one subject, so we shall have to wait and see what happens!

Our second major news from the Pokémon World Championships has just come thanks to Masuda officially revealing Mega Slowbro after the Pokémon leaked earlier this week.
During the opening ceremony for the event Masuda officially revealed Mega Slowbro, and while he commented that he may not be the first to show us the Pokémon, he is the first to show us footage of it in battle. The trailer can be seen above.
During the Pokémon World Championships it has been revealed that the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online will be coming to the iPad sometime in 2014.
The news was revealed thanks to YouTuber and the Pokémon Trading Card Game Worlds commentator Josh Wittenkeller tweeted a picture of the game running on an iPad. Kotaku then contacted the Pokémon Company for confirmation on when the game would be released.
After the official Pokémon website for Korea accidentally leaked two new Mega Pokémon we've been eagerly awaiting the two being officially revealed.
Today Mega Audino has been officially revealed at Gamescom, and thus we have a nice shiny trailer showing the Mega off, which you can see below:
Mega Slowbro has yet to be revealed but chances are it's going to be revealed at the Pokémon World Championship's this weekend.
We don't really cover the anime or the TCG here a lot at Pokecharms, so why not break that mould a little bit with a two for one deal?
The new Furious Fists TCG set launched today, and to celebrate it, the Pokémon Company has uploaded a couple of new adverts that'll be playing out for it, including a specially produced anime scene detailing the biggest names in the set:
There's also a slightly less appealing advert with some dodgy 3D models if you want to also check that out.
The focus on Mega Lucario in the set would come as no real surprise, as the card is more or less an I-win kind of play, but the other Pokémon mentioned in the advert are also ones to keep an eye out for at events such as Nationals and Worlds. Due to rules introduced this year, however, Furious Fists will not be...
The official Pokémon site for Korea has accidentally leaked two new Mega Pokémon for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
The two new Mega Pokémon are Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino. Very little is known about the two currently, but we do know that Mega Audino is a Normal and Fairy type with the Healer ability. As far as Mega Slowbro goes we know is that the Pokémon now has the ability Shell Armor and keeps its Water and Psychic typing. Mega Audino gets a boost in Defence and Sp. Defence, while Mega Slowbor has a boost in Defence and Sp. Attack.
It's unclear when the Pokémon will be officially revealed considering they weren't in this month's CoroCoro and that the official site has gone off-line in order to remove the two, but no doubt they'll turn up soon.
