Just a quick note to say that the Ash-Hat Pikachu promotion for owners of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon has now gone live. The event gives you the chance to obtain a Pikachu wearing one of Ash Ketchum's hats, the one you receive depends on the date on which you redeem the code. You can find more info in the video below and in our previous news article here.


The code to redeem the Pikachu is PIKACHU20 and please do remember that this code can only be used once per save file, so you won't be able to get more than one of the Ash-Hat Pikachu per game.

After a reveal during the Pokémon World Championships over the weekend, it has today been revealed that the Pokkén Tournament DX demo will be coming to Europe on the Switch's eShop this Thursday.

Any other details such as news on a release for the US have not been given at this time. However, we'd expect the demo to show up on Thursday for the US as well, if not then very soon after. The full game is released worldwide for Nintendo Switch on the 22nd of September.

During the opening ceremony for this year's Pokémon World Championships it was confirmed that exclusive Z-Moves will appear in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. During the event the first of these was revealed in the form of Clangorous Soulblaze, which is a new Z-Move for Kommo-o.

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.

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 :)
Some very brief, but hopefully exciting news for trainer card fans: We'll be taking the site offline for about 30-45 minutes tomorrow at 8am GMT, in order to upgrade the Trainer Card Maker. This upgrade will introduce all the new Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon to the Trainer Card Maker. :)

We apologise in advance for the inconvenience for anyone who might be wanting to use the site at that time, but we're really excited to bring you the chance to include Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, and all the other Alolan Pokémon in your trainer cards!

Now that Halloween has come and gone the latest mythical Pokémon distribution has begun. Up for grabs this month is Genesect, which will once again require you to visit a participating store in order to obtain a Genesect download code (or multiple codes, if you're lucky).

The Genesect codes are available at Gamestop in the US; GAME in the UK; and EBGames in Canada and Australia/New Zealand.

As per usual, the distribution will run until November 24th while supplies last. You can use your Genesect code via the Mystery Gift menu to receive your awesome mythical bug on a copy of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

As promised a few weeks ago, the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon Special Demo Version (try saying that five times fast) is now rolling out on the Nintendo eShop for all 3DS handhelds, including the 2DS.
