More information about the legendary Pokémon Marshadow has been revealed! It has been revealed that the Pokémon will be distributed in Japan to celebrate the release of the latest Pokémon movie, and thanks to that we now know a lot about the new Pokémon.

One of the things confirmed in this year's Nintendo E3 Direct was, straight from the mouth of Pokemon Company President Tsunekazu Ishihara, that a new main series Pokemon game was in development for the Nintendo Switch.

Unfortunately, despite rumours about a possible Pokemon Stars version of Sun/Moon coming to the Switch this year, this new game will be at least a year away. It's seeming pretty certain now that, although Pokemon Stars may well have been a thing once upon a time, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have taken its place. It's very likely that when Pokemon debuts on the Switch at some point around 2018/2019, it will be an entirely new Generation.

E3 2017 starts here. EA's conference is taking place tonight at 8pm BST - the earliest any E3 conference has ever taken place.

As we normally do, we'll be providing insight and previews into all the E3 conferences and reactions, updates and news to what comes from them. This year, though, instead of being a forum thread on Pokecharms, you'll be able to find all of that on our brand new sister site: GameCrash.

GameCrash launched a few weeks ago specifically to provide a more focused location for the video game industry articles we have posted here in the past. The goal is, rather than to simply be another video game news site that churns out hourly clickbait every day, we will instead be an online games magazine collecting longer and more thought out articles.

This year we will be posting individual articles for each of the conferences detailing when and...

As always, it's been very quiet in the Pokémon world over the last few months. Pokémon Sun and Moon have been and gone, shaking up the franchise as they go, but the hype quickly faded, and we all began to ask... what's next?

It sounds like we'll find out tomorrow – Nintendo have announced a Pokémon Direct for tomorrow, June 6th, at 3pm British Standard Time (that's 7 am PT – you can translate this into your own timezone here.)

New Pokemon Mega Stones.jpg

A new download code for use with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon has been revealed and gives fans the chance to get their hands on four Mega Stones. These Mega Stones are Pidgeotite, Steelixite, Heracronite and Houndoominite which are for use with Pidgeot, Steelix, Heracross and Houndoom.
We haven't done one of these in a while! For those of you who might be new to Flash Challenges, these are light-hearted, freeform artistic prompts, hopefully serving as inspiration for those who want to be creative.

So without further ado, the challenge this time is:

The Challenge

Create a written work, artwork, or trainer card about a legendary encounter.

At its most simple, this could be a battle with a Legendary or Mythical Pokémon. But a legendary encounter could be many things – after all, the fated battle between a trainer and their rival could be called a legendary encounter. So could a great test of skill, or the birth of a new friendship.

The choice, as always, is yours. The instructions for how to enter are in the full post...
