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!

It's been a while since we gave our Social Media accounts some love, and we feel like it's kinda kept us out of touch with a lot of fans both currently on the site, and those that aren't.

We want to be able to start even more conversations with you guys, share more of our content with you and, most importantly, share some of the stuff we absolutely love that you guys post on the Creative Corner here.

We've got so many talented people submitting artwork, writing and even photography that we'd like to shout about it even more than we already do. To tell the whole world that you guys are here and this is the amazing stuff you can do.

We don't want to post anyone's work without permission, though, so before we post anything to Facebook or Twitter, we will be contacting artists to ask permission. If you want to make the process even smoother and let us know you are happy with us sharing your work at any time, though, you can do one of the following:

Ok guys, let's have a chat about those 'leaks' that have been doing the rounds this week.

By now you've no doubt seen the buzz online that the forthcoming Pokemon Switch game/s may have been leaked online ahead of what's likely to be a reveal this month (or at the latest, at Nintendo's E3 Direct in June).

Things kicked off with what's honestly, a pretty vague and mostly meaningless, post from a well known breaker of NDAs, Emily Rogers. The general tone of the post was effectively that Pokemon Go might be an influencing factor on the next Pokemon games - potentially also including some sort of new accessory that we can only assume would effectively be a next generation PokeWalker, given the context. Ultimately, it's a bit like saying the sun will come up tomorrow, but it was enough to set tongues wagging.


Coincidentally, that very same day, a logo...
It's been nearly two months since Pokécharms Day 15 and the 15th anniversary quiz that accompanied it - and those of you who took part may have noticed that you've had a new trophy awarded to your profile for participating in said quiz.

Due to various people having changed their names since that time, leaving, being launched into the stratosphere on a rocket lawn chair or simply not using their actual forum name when taking the quiz - it may be possible that some of those who participated in the quiz didn't get their trophy yet. If you are one of these people, don't hesitate to leave a message here (preferably with the name you used when taking the quiz itself if you still remember it) and we'll catch you up.
