Pokemon-the-Movie-The-Power-of-Us-post.jpg
Like last year’s landmark 20th Pokemon movie, this year’s film is heading to cinema screens across the UK and North America this weekend. Is it worth paying up to experience on the big screen? Here’s our review to help you make up your mind!

Following on from ‘Pokemon I Choose You’, this year’s movie ‘The Power of Us’ sees the same version of Ash travel to Fura City to continue his journey with Pikachu. There’s never anything that officially places Fura City in the Johto region, but the “Festival of Wind” that’s taking place in the city is lousy with Johto region Pokemon so it’s probably in Johto.

We never see any of the rest of Ash’s current team, so it’s hard to say whether this movie takes place shortly after his adventures in I Choose You, or potentially years later. Ultimately, it’s not very relevant. At this point in his adventure, he and Pikachu are as close as they ever have been, and that’s effectively...

It’s been a long time coming, but Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! are finally available across the globe.

To celebrate their release, as some of you have likely already noticed, we’ve created a brand new forum section dedicated to all discussions about these latest Pokémon games. All posts previously found on the Alola Games forum have been moved to the Pokémon Games Discussion forum - the new location for all Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon chatter going forward.

But that’s not all. Click through to read more!...
Flash Challenges are freeform artistic prompts centered around a particular theme, meant to inspire creative works for whomever wishes to take them on - and now, with the first Pokémon RPGs for the Switch released into the world, the time has come for a new one!

The Challenge

Create a written work, artwork, or trainer card related to Pokémon Let's Go: Pikachu and Eevee!

These don't have to be related to your particular playthroughs, and even those who don't have the games or aren't particularly interested in the game are welcome to participate - you could very well create a work featuring Pikachu or Eevee themselves - or just a journey through the Kanto region with your closest companion of a Pokémon by your side. And of course, works featuring the latest introductions to the Pokémon world, Meltan and Melmetal, are also highly welcome.

We've been on a little break from streaming for a while as we work on other stuff (such as new videos for GameCrash - our general gaming sister site) and start putting together a plan for more content throughout 2019 for Pokecharms as well.

But we're back for a special stream this Saturday at 4:30pm (GMT/UTC) to play Let's Go Pikachu LIVE. And it's worth making sure you tune in as we'll be trying to give away a digital copy of Let's Go Pikachu or Let's Go Eevee to one lucky viewer.

To qualify, we must hit our target of 151 viewers for the stream. Once we get past that number, we'll ask everyone watching to answer a Pokemon trivia question in the chat. If you are subscribed to our channel and get the answer correct, you will be entered into a hat and we will randomly pick one person from that hat to win the code.

To hit that target, you'll need to make sure you share the link with your friends and get them...

We've known about the Detective Pikachu film for quite awhile now, but so far we've yet to see any footage of it. However, that all changed today as Warner Bros. Pictures uploaded the very first trailer to their YouTube channel. You can check it below!
As some of you may know, Pokémon Let's Go have been leaked and datamined, and a lot of unreleased imagery and information has made it onto the internet. Unfortunately, such information has not been sanctioned by Game Freak or Nintendo, and hosting it here would open us up to potential legal difficulties we are keen to avoid.

The practical effect of this is that we are not able to allow discussion, fanworks, or any other content involving leaked or datamined information, including that drawn from leaked or early release copies of the game, until further notice. For example, any discussion of unrevealed mechanics or changes will be removed from anywhere on the site, including profiles. Click here to read more...

The official Pokémon Twitter account has released a brand new trailer for Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! ahead of the games being released next week. Click through to find out more!
Ho-Oh_Lugia_Smaller.jpg
The latest in the long run of Legendary distributions has gone live worldwide. This event gives Pokémon fans the chance to get their hands on either Ho-Oh or Lugia and starts today until the 25th of November.


To take part in the event you must first obtain a code from your local GAME (UK), GameStop (US), or EB Games (Canada and Australia) store. The details of the two Pokémon are as follows:
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct – 01.11.2018 2-15 screenshot.png

Incineroar is the latest Pokemon addition to the Smash Bros lineup - and is the 74th and last* character to be announced for the game for its launch on the 7th December.

*We'll get to the caveat for that in a minute.

Incineroar has a moveset based largely off of its attacks in Sun/Moon, including a final smash based off its signature Z-Move. He's also joined by Street Fighter's Ken - an echo fighter of Ryu.

But, while there may not be any more new characters to be revealed for the game's launch in December, there will be more to come!

Piranha Plant has been announced as an "early purchase" bonus for players that either pre-order or buy the game before the 31st January. The download code for the character will be made available from mid-November, but it's not clear if they'll actually be available to play as when the game launches...
Happy Halloween, everyone!

In honour of this ghostly day, the Pokémon Company has released a new trailer for Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! featuring the lovely Lavender Town in all its spooky glory.


Beyond the location itself, and the fact your Pokémon partners may shiver with fright while exploring, the trailer is fairly brief - but enjoy the new rendition of the classic Lavender Town theme!
