Niantic have just revealed the newest feature for Pokémon GO: the Buddy System.
The Buddy system will allow trainers to choose a Pokémon from their collection to appear alongside their avatar on the profile screen. The Buddy Pokémon will provide bonuses, such as awarding Candy for walking with them, and trainers will be able to change out their Buddy Pokémon at any time.​

The update has not been dated, but Niantic say it's "just around the corner."

Good news for the fans of Pokémon's soundtracks: Game Freak have announced the release of the Pokémon Sun and Moon Super Music Collection in November. It will be released worldwide on iTunes, and contains all 175 tracks from the upcoming seventh generation games.

Like the other soundtracks from previous Pokémon games, which are also available on iTunes, the music is provided in a higher quality than you would find on the 3DS games. When the Pokémon Sun and Moon Super Music Collection launches, it will be priced at 99¢/79p/99¢ per single track, or $9.99/£7.99/€8.99 for the full album.

After three long and gruelling days of Pokémon battling, the 2016 Pokémon World Championships wrapped up yesterday afternoon in San Francisco - or earlier this morning depending on your timezone.
While the Pokkén Tournament finals were settled on Saturday, and its victors sadly missing during the Worlds closing ceremonies, our TCG and VGC finals were held on Sunday. Trophies were presented to our TCG and VGC winners during the closing ceremonies by Game Freak's Junichi Masuda and the Pokemon Company's president/CEO, Tsunekazu Ishihara. Congratulations to all of our new champions and to the rest of the players who took part in this year's Pokémon World Championships, and an especially big congrats to our first ever Pokkén Tournament World Champions!

The opening event for the Pokemon Worlds tournament has taken place in San Francisco today (and don't worry that you weren't able to watch it live - neither was anyone else). In it there was some news about the TCG and the announcement of 4 new Pokemon - 3 of which we're seeing outside of Japan for the first time and one of which is brand new to everyone.

Today at the Gamescom 2016 event in Germany, a whole new Pokémon has been revealed - say hello to the Blast Turtle Pokémon, Turtonator!
Following yesterday's official reveal of new Pokemon, new Alolan forms and Team Skull, the Japanese Pokemon Site added, along with the details of the newly revealed Pokemon, seemingly entirely random pages featuring both Aragonite and Zubat, then sent out this cryptic tweet:

The text effectively translates to 'Dragonite and Zubat arrive in Sun and Moon! Stay tuned to learn more about these familliar Pokemon!", and neither the twitter account nor the official site goes into any more detail on why they've suddenly given prominence to these Pokemon in relation to Sun and Moon.​
