Earlier today the Pokémon Company International released a gameplay trailer highlighting new features within the upcoming Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire remakes, Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, most notably being the special scenario known as the Delta Episode. You can check out the trailer for yourself below:
The Delta Episode is a brand new story arc unique to Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire. Its story revolves around a gigantic asteroid that's on a collision course with the planet, the history of the Hoenn region and origins of Mega Evolution, and a mysterious girl named Zinnia. Rayquaza and Deoxys are also set to play significant roles within the story, as will Steven, Wallace, Team Magma and Team Aqua, and the Mossdeep Space Center. Sounds like quite the party, eh? It would appear that an event from 3,000 years...

A fine day for Pokémon fans today as Nintendo of Europe has been busy making a few quiet announcements related to the latest games, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
First off Nintendo revealed two new 2DS designs will be making their way to Europe in the form of a transparent Red and a transparent blue console. The two will be sold on their own from the 7th of November and from the 28th of November will also be offered as a bundle with a copy of either Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The two designs remind us a lot of the transparent cartridges that the original Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire had...
Nintendo also shared details on how they're going to handle the demo for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire in the UK....
Yesterday we brought you the news that GameStop stores in the US would be giving away serial codes for a Shiny Gengar and Diancie during the Autumn. Good news for UK Pokémon fans today as the same distribution has been announced for us as well.
Our dates for the events differ greatly from the US. From the 15th of October until the 5th of November you'll be able to get a serial code from video game retailer GAME for a Shiny Gengar holding the Gengarite Mega Stone.
From the 6th of November through until the 28th of November you'll be able to get your hands on Diancie from GAME for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game.
Now that we’ve gotten into September and the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire isn’t that far away video games stores across the world have been revealing the pre-order bonuses being offered for the two games. We’ve decided to round it all up in one handy article for you so you have an idea of what’s on offer. You can find out more after the cut!
Two new Pokémon distributions have been announced for the US during autumn. Both will be given out by GameStop stop stores as serial codes.
The first event runs from the 13th of October until the 26th of October and gives players the chance to get their hands on a Shiny Gengar holding its Mega Stone, the Gengarite.
From the 27th of October until the 16th of November GameStop stores will also be giving players their very first chance to get their hands on Diancie in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
No news on the distributions have been revealed for Europe, but we should be getting Diancie at least sometime soon.
The concept of the guys at Namco Bandai's Tekken coming together with The Pokemon Company/Nintendo to build a Pokemon 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.

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...
