Today is Pokecharms Day, also known as our official 18th birthday! In celebration of that, we've got some news about what's been going on behind the scenes for a while now and some exciting peeks at what's coming later this year.

If you're a Pokecharms regular, you've probably noticed a bit of a slowing down in recent years in terms of news, features and even updates to the Trainer Card Maker. There are a number of reasons for this - chief amongst them being that over the last 18 years, all of us working on the site accidentally became boring adults with boring actual jobs.

But one of the biggest problems we've had for a while now is that the technology the site's currently built on just doesn't really allow us to do everything that we want to do in terms of developing new features or putting the focus we want on news, articles and more. To make...

Tonight's show also confirmed that Colombian singer J Balvin will be joining Post Malone, Katy Perry and other yet-to-be-announced artists on the Pokémon 25 Music Project, so look forward to more music to come throughout the year.

Coming later this year, and developed by ILCA, Inc - whose experience includes games such as Code Vein, NieR Automata and Yakuza 0 - under Game Freak's direction, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are incredibly faithful remakes of the 2006 DS originals. Brought bang-up-to-date with a chibi-style to match the original's overworld sprites and promising to keep hold of player-friendly conveniences of later releases (No HMs, please!), these games promise...

With Pokémon Day and Post Malone's live concert celebrating it just two days away, we've got our first tease as to what to expect from the show itself. Overnight, Malone shared to his own official Youtube Channel a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish's Only Wanna Be With You with a slight Pokémon tweak. While the song is otherwise a straight cover, Ecruteak City's theme can also be heard sampled throughout, giving us an insight into what we might expect from other songs in the show.


We're expecting a lot more news over the next day or two, so make sure to keep checking back for more info on Pokémon Day itself.

As we come closer to the 25th Anniversary of the release of Pokémon Red & Green in Japan, we're getting more and more teases about what The Pokémon Company has in store to celebrate the occasion. Previously, Katy Perry was announced as part of a P25 Music collaboration with various artists signed to Universal Music. Now we know she'll be joined by Post Malone, who'll be performing a 'virtual' concert on Twitch and Youtube on Pokémon Day itself.

The game takes place in the islands of the Lental Region, where you'll take on the position of a budding Pokémon photographer working for Professor Mirror and his assistant, Rita. Like the original Pokémon Snap, you roam around the archipelago in a vehicle called NEO-ONE and can throw special 'fluffruit' to catch a Pokémon's attention so you can take the perfect shot.

The game is available to pre-order on the eShop now and launches on the 30th April. ​

Last month it was revealed that a Zarude Distribution would be running throughout November and into early December. Here in the UK the only way to get your hands on a code for the legendary Pokémon was to go to your local GAME store.

However, on Monday it was announced that Pokémon fans will be able to get a code for Zarude by simply being signed up for the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter by the 18th of December. Codes will then be sent out in January. Not only will these be sent out to people in the UK, but also those within Europe.
