Last month we reported on a brand new event making its way to the US and UK. This event is being held by GameStop stores in the US (EB Games in Canada), and GAME stores in the UK.
Pokémon X and Pokémon Y owners will be able to get their hands on a Shiny Gengar holding the Gengarite Mega Stone. The event is live in the US and Canada now until the 26th of October. In the UK you'll be able to get hold of Gengar from tomorrow, the 15th of October until the 5th of November.
After the Gengar event we'll be given a new event allowing us to get our hands on Diancie.
The latest edition of Japanese magazine CoroCoro has started to leak this morning and brought with it the official reveal of four brand new Mega Pokémon.
First up we have the reveal of Mega Beedrill. This Mega has been given the ability Adaptability and keeps its Bug and Poison typing. It also gets a boost in its Attack and Speed stats.
Next up we have a Mega Pidgeot! This Pokémon keeps its Normal and Flying typing and gains the ability No Guard. It has also been stated that the Mega will be getting a boost in its Special Attack stat.
The magazine has also officially revealed the Mega evolutions for Latios and Latias. It's said that during your adventure the player will befriend one of the two and be able to fly through the skies with them thanks to a new item known as the Eon Flute.
While flying through the skies players...

A seven hour special Pokémon stream was shown in Japan today and right at the end a surprise reveal was made in the form of Mega Rayquaza for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The Mega was revealed by the official Pokémon YouTube channel for outside of Japan straight afterwards and you can see a trailer for the Pokémon below:
Mega Rayquaza can learn a special Flying type move known as Dragon Ascent which is said to be extremely powerful. Mega Rayquaza also has a new ability known as Delta Stream which means all other weather abilities and moves will not work as long as the Pokémon remains in battle. It's worth noting that the ability also makes it so moves that Flying type Pokémon are normally weak to will only deal normal damage to any Flying type in battle. Mega Rayquaza also gets a boost in all its stats and remains a Dragon and Flying type Pokémon.

A new wi-fi event for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y has been revealed in the lead up to Halloween. This event gives Pokémon trainers the chance to get their hands on a Super Size Pumpkaboo. The Pumpkaboo's details are as follows:
Item: Rocky Helmet
Moves: Trick-or-Treat, Astonish, Scary Face, Shadow Sneak
The event runs in the US and Europe from today until the 31st of October, making it the perfect spooky Halloween giveaway. This event also means that players will be able to take part in the Trick-or-Treat Friendly Competition which requires players to have a Gourgeist in their team.
A surprise reveal was made today as the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online has now been released in the form of an iPad app. The app hit Canada earlier this week and has since been added to the US and UK iTunes store.
A nice shiny trailer showing the trailer off was release and can be viewed above. If you want to download and use the app then your iPad must be running iOS 7 or higher.
It's also worth noting on my iPad Mini the app is crashing shortly after booting it up, it's unclear if it's a common problem or just something I'm experiencing but either way it's worth keeping in mind.
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....
It has been confirmed that Pokémon Center stores in Japan will be stocking limited edition New 3DS consoles to go alongside the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
The consoles feature either Groudon or Kyogre and comes bundled with a copy of either Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. They will be released in Japan on the 21st of November.
It has also been revealed that Japan will be getting a soundtrack for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on the 6th of December. Considering we now have soundtracks for all the games from the original Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire right up to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, chances are the soundtrack will be released outside of Japan not long after.
Yesterday this month's edition of CoroCoro began to leak and brought with it the reveal of three brand new Mega Pokémon, but today the last page of the magazine with information on Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire has surfaced.
It hasn't revealed much information, however it does show Rayquaza and states the Pokémon is said to be related to the secret of Mega Evolution. Chances are this means that Rayquaza will have the ability to Mega Evolve, but we'll have to wait and see on that front.
Following on from yesterday's reveal we also now know what ability Mega Gallade is given when it Mega Evolves. Once Mega Evolved Mega Gallade obtains the ability Inner Focus.
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.
