Last night the second trailer for Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution was officially released in Japan. You can check it out for yourself below!


This trailer showcases some Pokémon battles on New Island as well as Mewtwo in the armour given to it by Giovanni. The glimpse of the armour we see shows it as an updated version compared to the original Mewtwo Strikes Back movie. Armour aside it looks like the movie will be a fairly faithful remake of the original.

As some of you might already be aware, every Saturday for the past few weeks I've been streaming again on our sister site GameCrash's Twitch channel. While we're still taking a break from Pokecharms streams until we have content we're happy with putting out weekly, these weekly streams will help fill the time until then!

Tonight (starting shortly after this post!) I'm playing Golden Axe Warrior in celebration of a recently published article by moi. If you have no idea what Golden Axe Warrior is, all the more reason to join us!

It's that time again! March 17th is here, and that means we've officially completed another revolution around the sun.

Things have been pretty busy for all of us - and so we haven't really had the chance to put together anything particularly special this year (as you can probably tell by the fact we took this long to even make a post about it!). But nonetheless, existing for 16 years is an achievement of its own right - and with a new generation of Pokémon games just around the corner, we will probably have some interesting things in store this year regardless.

Pokémon Sword and Shield could be the best and most disappointing Pokémon games yet
"Although we loved what we saw in the Pokémon Sword and Shield reveal, there's a disappointing lack of any sign that the Pokémon series itself will be evolving any time soon."

Happy Pokemon Day, folks! In celebration of the release of the first generation of Pokemon Games 23 years ago today, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have finally lifted the lid on this year's brand new, 8th Generation of Pokemon games: Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Set in the Galar region - ostensibly based off of Great Britain (pretty much just England though, really) - the first brand new Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch really put the system to work in bringing this new region to life. Galar is an expansive region with diverse environments— an idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forest, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. In what's presumably a nod to a combination of classic Northern English cities and London, there's also a quite industrial feel to certain areas of the game, too. Something that's quite unique to a series that's either very naturalistic or very futuristic in its settings.​
