It's the weekend, and you know what that means - Pokécharms continues its adventures through Sinnoh, Johto and Unova on Twitch and Youtube!

Join me tonight (Friday) at 10pm BST (Your timezone here) as I (hopefully) clear off hostile clueless cultists from Eterna City, get the local gym badge and probably fall down a mine shaft in Pokémon Platinum. Hopefully, with less technical issues this time!

Tomorrow (Saturday) at the same time, Doctor Oak takes on Goldenrod City (and beyond?) in Pokémon SoulSilver, while on Sunday (again, at the same time), Teapot returns to Unova and hopefully doesn't got bodied by a passing Sigilyph after (another) ride on the Nimbasa Ferris Wheel.


As usual, make sure you're following us on...
Hours later, another trailer released in Japan - this time without an English version popping up later.


The trailer certainly seems to show the game taking a few more pages out of Go's playbook. Apparently, the encounters with the three Legendary Birds at least also involve battling them, and - akin to one of Go's most frustrating elements - some wild Pokémon are prone to running away. The trailer also briefly shows (for a split second) what might be a new Mini-Game involving Pikachu - and (also for a split second) it also shows a cameo by Jessie, James and Meowth - so one may assume that their brief cameos from Yellow are to be integrated into this game.

On other news, the 21st Pokémon Movie, Everyone's Story, was finally released in Japan yesterday - and as per usual, its ending showed a brief teaser for next year's movie, revealing its title as "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution". Because the last time someone tried to...

Shortly ago, a new trailer was revealed for Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let's Go, Eevee! Showcasing a bit more about the games.


Not much actual news was revealed in this trailer - but you can read more about what WAS revealed in this trailer here.

Now that June's Legendary Pokémon distribution has ended, it's time to turn your attention towards the next duo for this event: Thundurus for Pokémon Sun & Ultra Sun, and Tornadus for Pokémon Moon and Ultra Moon. Like with the previous giveaways, how you'll need to go about obtaining these two - and when - depends on where you live. Click through to find out more!...

Several hours ago, the Pokémon 2018 Video Game Press Conference has been held in Tokyo, and officially revealed a great deal of new information concerning upcoming... well, Pokémon video games. And it was an eventful press conference alright - confirming some rumors, putting others into context, and revealing some exciting new things to look forward to.

Ok guys, let's have a chat about those 'leaks' that have been doing the rounds this week.

By now you've no doubt seen the buzz online that the forthcoming Pokemon Switch game/s may have been leaked online ahead of what's likely to be a reveal this month (or at the latest, at Nintendo's E3 Direct in June).

Things kicked off with what's honestly, a pretty vague and mostly meaningless, post from a well known breaker of NDAs, Emily Rogers. The general tone of the post was effectively that Pokemon Go might be an influencing factor on the next Pokemon games - potentially also including some sort of new accessory that we can only assume would effectively be a next generation PokeWalker, given the context. Ultimately, it's a bit like saying the sun will come up tomorrow, but it was enough to set tongues wagging.


Coincidentally, that very same day, a logo...

While it took its sweet time to arrive, the special Detective Pikachu demo that Japan received last month is finally available for Europe and North America. The demo is free to download via the 3DS eShop and covers a portion of chapter 1 from Detective Pikachu.

If you later buy the full retail version the game, you can transfer your progress from the demo to it and continue on your merry way!

Who’s already picked up a copy of Detective Pikachu or plans to try the demo?

Updated 09/03/2018: Sadly, there’s a possibility that the Detective Pikachu demo will only be made available in Japan. We’ll let you know if this changes in the future!

A new English trailer has been published for the upcoming 3DS title Detective Pikachu. Take look at the trailer below!


While the UK version of the trailer only showcases the game's release date and the special Detective Pikachu Amiibo, the North American trailer also highlights a promotion for a free Detective Pikachu 3DS Theme - presumably implying that the promotion is North American only.
