December is here and with Christmas and the end of the year in sight the final legendary give-away for the sixth generation of Pokémon games has now gone live.

This even allows Pokémon fans to get their hands on a Meloetta for Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The details of Meloetta are as follows:

Just as most of the world are sinking their teeth into Pokémon Sun and Moon, Eurogamer have reported on a frankly incredible rumour: Pokémon Sun and Moon are getting a third version, codenamed Pokémon Stars, but on Nintendo Switch instead of 3DS.

This would mark two major milestones for Pokémon: It'd be the first time a main-series Pokémon generation spanned two console devices, but far more importantly, it would mark the first time in Pokémon's 20-year history that a main-series Pokémon game is playable on your TV without additional hardware.

As promised in a brief note last night: I am really pleased to announce that the Trainer Card Maker has been updated with all of the new Pokémon found in Alola, including all the Alolan variants of existing Pokémon. I want to extend a huge thank you to every single member of the Pokécharms staff for their efforts in making this possible so early – I couldn't do it alone!

From all of us on staff, we really hope you enjoy this update – and for those of you getting Pokémon Sun and Moon today, do enjoy it! If you want to chat about the new games, we invite you to join us in our Pokémon Sun and Moon forum, take a look at the latest Sun and Moon fanworks in our Creative Corner, or join us in our Role Play section, which has just been opened up to Alolan Pokémon.
As of now, Pokémon Sun and Moon are starting to roll out across the world, and some of you lucky folks will be beginning to pick up the games very soon. As a result, we wanted to make you all aware of the new policies regarding Pokémon Sun and Moon, and what's currently allowed and banned on Pokécharms. Click through to find out more...

A week before Sun/Moon officially drop, We got another information drop about the games - and perhaps because it is so close to release, an annoyingly vague one.

Read more about this new information.
EDIT 7th November: This article has been updated to reflect our stance on leaks from full copies of Pokémon Sun and Moon that have broken street date before release.

As some of you may know, Pokémon Sun and Moon's demo release was met by the datamining community with interest, and early this morning a large quantity of images were released depicting Pokémon Sun and Moon information that has not yet officially been revealed. Unfortunately, such information has not been sanctioned by Game Freak or Nintendo, and hosting it here would open us up to potential difficulties we are keen to avoid.

The practical effect of this is that we are not able to allow discussion, fanworks, or any other content involving leaked or datamined information, including that drawn from leaked copies of the game, until further notice. This does not include the info available as part of gameplay in the Sun and Moon demo. For example, any drawings of unrevealed Pokémon, mentions of them in the forums or profiles, and so on will be removed. Read more...

Now that Halloween has come and gone the latest mythical Pokémon distribution has begun. Up for grabs this month is Genesect, which will once again require you to visit a participating store in order to obtain a Genesect download code (or multiple codes, if you're lucky).

The Genesect codes are available at Gamestop in the US; GAME in the UK; and EBGames in Canada and Australia/New Zealand.

As per usual, the distribution will run until November 24th while supplies last. You can use your Genesect code via the Mystery Gift menu to receive your awesome mythical bug on a copy of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

We're getting towards the end of the Pokémon Sun and Moon info dumps, and they've saved up some great stuff for today's reveals. Firstly and most importantly, we've got the final starter evolutions for Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio finally revealed – and yes, they match the leaks from months ago. What we didn't know was their secondary types – and there are a few surprises in store!

We've also got new information on three more Island Guardians, Alolan Persian, and a brand new Battle Tree. Click through for full details...
