Pokécharms

Your source for Pokémon fan works, Trainer Cards, and news.

It's the weekend, and you know what that means - Pokécharms continues its adventures through Sinnoh, Johto and Unova on Twitch and Youtube!

Join me tonight (Friday) at 10pm BST (Your timezone here) as I (hopefully) clear off hostile clueless cultists from Eterna City, get the local gym badge and probably fall down a mine shaft in Pokémon Platinum. Hopefully, with less technical issues this time!

Tomorrow (Saturday) at the same time, Doctor Oak takes on Goldenrod City (and beyond?) in Pokémon SoulSilver, while on Sunday (again, at the same time), Teapot returns to Unova and hopefully doesn't got bodied by a passing Sigilyph after (another) ride on the Nimbasa Ferris Wheel.


As usual, make sure you're following us on...
Hours later, another trailer released in Japan - this time without an English version popping up later.


The trailer certainly seems to show the game taking a few more pages out of Go's playbook. Apparently, the encounters with the three Legendary Birds at least also involve battling them, and - akin to one of Go's most frustrating elements - some wild Pokémon are prone to running away. The trailer also briefly shows (for a split second) what might be a new Mini-Game involving Pikachu - and (also for a split second) it also shows a cameo by Jessie, James and Meowth - so one may assume that their brief cameos from Yellow are to be integrated into this game.

On other news, the 21st Pokémon Movie, Everyone's Story, was finally released in Japan yesterday - and as per usual, its ending showed a brief teaser for next year's movie, revealing its title as "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution". Because the last time someone tried to...

Shortly ago, a new trailer was revealed for Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! Showcasing a bit more about the games.

Now that June's Legendary Pokémon distribution has ended, it's time to turn your attention towards the next duo for this event: Thundurus for Pokémon Sun & Ultra Sun, and Tornadus for Pokémon Moon and Ultra Moon. Like with the previous giveaways, how you'll need to go about obtaining these two - and when - depends on where you live. Click through to find out more!...

SMASH.jpg

Capping off the E3 conferences for the week, Nintendo's E3 Direct aired earlier this evening and, although there wasn't a lot of brand new games announced within it, it's hard to say it didn't deliver the goods when it comes to what's arguably Nintendo's biggest release this year: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

It's called Ultimate, of course, because it really is the Ultimate version of all Smash games so far. Featuring all 65 characters that have appeared in the entire Smash series as well as a handful of new characters, including Splatoon's Inkling, Daisy (as an 'Echo' character of Peach) and Metroid's Ridley. There are new Pokeball Pokemon, Assist Trophies, items and stages - but it also seems like the game might be as thorough in including all the previous ones as well.

The E3 Direct was otherwise light on new games. Fortnite was finally confirmed for release on the Switch, and indeed is available on the eShop right now. A new Fire...
A new Japanese trailer has been released for the upcoming movie Pokémon the Movie: Everyone's Story. The trailer doesn't offer too much in the way of new content, but it further emphasizes the various characters featured in the film, showcases the movie's theme song, and offers glimpses of Zeraora and Lugia.

Take a look!
