For many years now fans of the Pokémon series have wondered what the official timeline was for the games and when their stories take place. Well wonder no more as after the reveal of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, scenario writer Toshinobu Matsumiya, who has worked on the games since Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, has now revealed the official order of the games.
The order of the timeline is as follows: Generation I/Generation III -> Generation II/Generation IV -> Black/White -> Black 2/White 2/X/Y
The timeline works as you'd expect for the most part but it is nice to know where Pokémon X and Pokémon Y fit into things and that they do indeed come after the stories that take place in Unova. Toshinobu didn't state how much time had passed between each generation, but we know from the games themselves that three years passed between the first generation games and generation two. We also know that two years...
Pokémon Get TV has just finished airing in Japan and as expected has brought with it a little bit of footage from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The footage showed Groudon and Kyogre getting ready for battle and activating their abilities. Said footage has been uploaded to the official Pokémon YouTube channel and can be seen below:
After the footage was shown the Pokémon Get TV team pointed out the differences between Groudon and Kyogre's original artwork and the artwork being used for the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire box art. This could be implying that the new artwork being used for the two is showing them in different forms or Mega Evolved, but only time will give us the answer to that.
Disclaimer: Actual content is not actually 3D.Ever since we've added sixth-generation Pokémon to the Trainer Card Maker we've received multiple requests and queries to include Gen VI graphics for the Gen I-V Pokémon as well. Now, thanks to the magic of decent renders of all models actually being ripped and made available for the Internets by the fine folks at Veekun - and many hours of yours truly beating said images into the correct framed format - we can finally bring previous generations to the 3D age on the TCM.
So, what does this content update include?
- Gen VI models for All 649 Pokémon from Generations I through V.
- Mega Evolved Pokémon - another long-requested feature that we've debated for a while before deciding to include them after all. These are distinguished from ordinary Pokémon by a light border and background and may be found as a form change for their base form (That is - if you want to add Mega Charizard Y to your...

In a very shocking and surprising reveal, the official Pokémon YouTube channel has just revealed remakes of the third generation Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire games.The two remakes will go by the name of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Both games will be released worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS in November. Nothing else about the games is currently known.
The trailer which revealed the games can be seen below:
Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire were originally released for the Gameboy Advance in Japan November 2002, the games were then released outside of Japan in early 2003.
The answer, according to an increasing amount of reports, is: perhaps (but we'll say no, just in case).
IGN cites multiple sources indicating that a hardware reveal of some description by Nintendo is forthcoming, and there are even some early indications of what that might be.
The primary rumour is that the hardware is actually neither a direct successor to the 3DS, nor the Wii U - but both. A combination called Nintendo Fusion DS and Nintendo Fusion Terminal that will function as both an independent handheld device, and as a 'base system' console. The rumoured specs detail a base...

In a surprising move, a new spin-off title has been announced for 3DS owners in Japan. A spin-off of the Art Academy series of games has been revealed, the game titled Pokémon Art Academy will be coming to the 3DS on the 19th of June in Japan. Pokémon Art Academy is getting a retail and eShop release.
The game includes 40 lessons teaching us how to draw easy Pokémon like Pikachu right up to much more challenging Pokémon such as Charizard and Mewtwo. Players will be able to share their artwork via Miiverse as well as saving it to their console's SD card or saving it in the game itself on Trading Card Game style cards.
A trailer for the game can be seen below. No news on a release outside of Japan has been given but considering how big the Art Academy series is outside of Japan (not to mention how huge Pokémon is) we wouldn't be surprised to see this game get some sort of release at some point....
