A brand new event for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y has been revealed today thanks to UK retailer GAME. The event is giving players to get their hands on a Charizard holding either a Charizardite Y stone or a Charizardite X stone, depending on which copy of the game the Pokémon is being sent to.
The Charizard can be downloaded either through the Nintendo Zone while in a GAME store, or you can get a serial code from a member of stuff which can then be input into your game. The event runs from the 11th of July until the 10th of August, so grab Charizard while you can!
Pokémon Art Academy was released in Europe last week and thus our resident reporter has picked up a copy of the game (and somehow managed to put it down....) to write a review! Find out what I think after the cut.
Exciting news today for Pokémon fans awaiting Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, as it has been revealed that Secret Bases will be making a return! Secret Bases will be making their return in the form of Super-Secret Bases which, as with the Secret Bases in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, can be customised with many different items.
However, with their return the bases have had a few updates. Thanks to the wonders of the 3DS' StreetPass feature players will be able to share their bases with one another. They'll also be able to create a QR code for their base which can be shared.
When visiting another player's base you'll be able to do battle with the player or invite them back to your own Secret Base where they can become a Secret Pal. Secret Pals will have special skills that can help you...
Interesting news came today when Nintendo announced the latest batch of games to be coming to the 3DS and Wii U eShop. It was announced that the Gameboy Colour Pokémon game, Pokémon Trading Card Game, is coming to the European 3DS eShop this Thursday. The game will be sold for £4.49.
Pokémon Trading Card Game is a video game based on the actual Pokémon Trading Card Game. It was released for the Gameboy Colour in 2000 and saw players battling against CPU opponents with the newest decks at the time, Pokémon Base Set, Pokémon Jungle, and Pokémon Fossil. The game also let plays earn cards by winning battles in order to build their own decks in the game. When originally released the game was strong reviews and quickly became a favourite among Pokémon fans.
Some of you may remember that back in May a new Vivillon pattern was revealed by the official Japanese Pokémon site. The Vivillon was set to be released as soon as 100,000,000 trades were made over the Pokémon Global Link for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Well, good news today as the total has been met and thus the special Pokémon can now be downloaded.
Fancy Pattern Vivillon can be downloaded via the Mystery Gift option. The event runs from today until the 31st of July, so make sure you get your hands on the Pokémon quickly! The details of the Pokémon are as follows:
Ability: Shield Dust
Moves: Gust, Light Screen, Struggle Bug, Hold Hands.
Hold Hands is an event only move that Vivillon can't normally learn.
Exciting news for Pokémon fans today as two big announcements have been made. Starting off with one of the biggest for Pokémon fans in the US; It has been revealed that the Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions, a live orchestral concert, will be going on tour in the US. So far only two dates for the tour have been confirmed.
The first date is August the 15th in Washington, which is also the day before the Pokémon Video Game World Championships take place. The second date is for the 19th of September in Philadelphia.
More dates and locations for the event will be confirmed at a later date. The concert will be playing a range of music from across the six generations of Pokémon. To find out more check out the official Pokémon site right here.
In news which will...
E3 may slowly be coming to a close now and many of us weren't really expecting to see any more Pokémon news for a little while after being treated to two very nice new trailers over the last couple of days. However, things haven't gone quiet just yet as today the official website for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire has opened, and we've been treated to yet another trailer in order to celebrate.
The new trailer doesn't reveal much new information, it's mostly reintroducing us to the Mega Evolutions for the three Hoenn starters. The trailer does reveal Mega Diancie outside of Japan for the first time though, reconfirming that the Pokémon will be given away through an event for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y soon. The trailer can be seen below:

While yesterday may have brought its fair share of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire news thanks to a brand new trailer, the news hasn't stopped there.
Another new trailer for the game was revealed during Nintendo's Kids Conference at E3 today which has revealed a brand new Mega Pokémon in the form of Mega Sableye! The trailer revealing the Pokémon can be seen below:
When Sableye Mega Evolves it collects all the energy from Mega Evolving into the jewel on its chest will swell and become attached from its body, giving Mega Sableye a tough defence in battle. From behind the shelter of the jewel, it can readily exploit the opponent’s weaknesses and take advantage of any openings. It is said that the jewel hardens into such strength that no attack can even make a scratch!
Pokémon Omega Ruby...
The official Pokémon website has also confirmed that outside of Japan the new forms of Groudon and Kyogre are known as Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre. The two forms are obtained through Primal Reversion. We've also got a pretty new map of the Hoenn region which you can see above.
The official release dates for the two games have been confirmed. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire will be released for the 3DS in the US, Japan and Australia on the 21st of November. The games will then be released in Europe on the 28th.
It's that time of year again, and as usual, we've got our own special brand of coverage of the glitz and glamour of the gaming world's equivalent of Christmas.
Throughout the conferences, we'll be discussing the events live in the chatroom, so drop by to be part of the action. We'll also be covering any relevant news from Nintendo's conference, and at least some degree of Pokemon news expected, you'll want to keep a close eye on our news posts on Tuesday.
The easiest way to follow along with us, is to check out our E3 2014 mega thread, but I'll be copying its contents into the posts below for easy access. We've got dates, times and streaming locations for all the main conferences, as well as a traditional roundup and analysis of what to expect from the Big 3's conferences. To avoid splitting the discussion, however, this news thread will be locked - so please...
