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.

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,...
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.

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.
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.
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!
