Pokemon Bottle Cap Dis.jpg
A distribution has started in the UK and Europe that allows owners of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon the chance to get their hand on a Bottle Cap item. Having a Bottle Cap allows you to push one Pokémon's IV up to the maximum value of 31, so if you're a competitive player than you definitely want to get your hands on one!

The event is running via codes which can be obtained from GAME stores in the UK. The distribution started today and runs until the 28th of February and all codes must be used by the 13th of May or they'll no longer work.

Some of you may have heard of a mobile game called Pokémon Comaster, which was released in Japan in April last year. Yesterday the game was finally given an English release under the new name of Pokémon Duel.

Read on to find a trailer for the game!
Given that the games have been out a couple of months now, it's now time to lift the last restrictions on talking about Pokémon Sun and Moon. As of today, you may now post anywhere on the site regarding the plot of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

If you are posting spoilers, you do not need to put them in [spoiler] tags, although it is worth considering that some of our users still may not want to see some of the late-game plot points. We leave it up to your discretion as to whether you continue to use them. :)

As always, thanks for being part of Pokécharms, and we hope you enjoy the new freedom :)

As previously promised way back when the games were first announced,, Pokémon Bank has today been updated to add support for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, and a raft of new features. The Poké Transporter app, originally used for transferring Pokémon from the fifth generation games, has also been updated to allow transfer of the 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Green, and Pokémon Yellow.

This means that you can now bring Pokémon stored in your Bank into Pokémon Sun and Moon, regardless of which game they came from. Click through for full details – and the Mewnium Z giveaway...

Today's big Nintendo Switch presentation has been and gone in the wee hours of the morning, and the end result is... mostly just confirmation of what a lot of us had already assumed, but confirmation all the same. The Switch will be out worldwide on the 3rd March for $299US/£279.99. There may be software bundles announced later, but for now, there will be two configurations available at launch, one with two grey Joy-Con controllers and one with a Red and a Blue Joy-Con controller, which you can see in the full article with the rest of the contents of the box...

December is here and with Christmas and the end of the year in sight the final legendary give-away for the sixth generation of Pokémon games has now gone live.

This even allows Pokémon fans to get their hands on a Meloetta for Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The details of Meloetta are as follows:

Just as most of the world are sinking their teeth into Pokémon Sun and Moon, Eurogamer have reported on a frankly incredible rumour: Pokémon Sun and Moon are getting a third version, codenamed Pokémon Stars, but on Nintendo Switch instead of 3DS.

This would mark two major milestones for Pokémon: It'd be the first time a main-series Pokémon generation spanned two console devices, but far more importantly, it would mark the first time in Pokémon's 20-year history that a main-series Pokémon game is playable on your TV without additional hardware.

Let's collect the rumours so far – click through to read more...

As promised in a brief note last night: I am really pleased to announce that the Trainer Card Maker has been updated with all of the new Pokémon found in Alola, including all the Alolan variants of existing Pokémon. I want to extend a huge thank you to every single member of the Pokécharms staff for their efforts in making this possible so early – I couldn't do it alone!

From all of us on staff, we really hope you enjoy this update – and for those of you getting Pokémon Sun and Moon today, do enjoy it! If you want to chat about the new games, we invite you to join us in our Pokémon Sun and Moon forum, take a look at the latest Sun and Moon fanworks in our Creative Corner, or join us in our Role Play section, which has just been opened up to Alolan Pokémon.
As of now, Pokémon Sun and Moon are starting to roll out across the world, and some of you lucky folks will be beginning to pick up the games very soon. As a result, we wanted to make you all aware of the new policies regarding Pokémon Sun and Moon, and what's currently allowed and banned on Pokécharms. Click through to find out more...
