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.

As we previously reported, TPCi has designated 2018 as a year of celebration for all of our beloved (and lesser loved) Legendary Pokémon. Kicking things off is a retail distribution of Dialga and Palkia, which will span the month of February (ending on February 28th).

Visit a participating GameStop (US), GAME (UK), or EB Games (Canada and Australia) to pickup your download codes for Dialga/Palkia. Dialga can be redeemed for copies of Pokémon Moon and Pokémon Ultra Moon, while Palkia will be available for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Ultra Sun. The two Legendary Pokémon's levels and movesets will vary depending on which game you redeem them for (also detailed in our previous article). Click through to read more!...

I wasn't sure if this day would ever come to pass, but the quirky Nintendo 3DS title Detective Pikachu has finally been announced and dated for a western release. Originally this "episodic", digital-only, action-adventure Pokémon game was released almost two years ago in Japan (February 3rd, 2016), but a second part was never released and it was never shown off internationally. Since then the incomplete game largely faded into obscurity outside of its connections with the upcoming live action Pokémon movie.

Now, oddly enough, not only will Detective Pikachu finally be released in North America and Europe on March 23rd, 2018, the 3DS game is receiving a complete physical version that tells the entire story - not just the portion that was previously released. Japan will also be receiving this new version on the same date.
It has been announced that Pokémon Crystal is coming to the 3DS Virtual Console via the eShop early next year.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are finally available! Here’s a launch trailer to celebrate their worldwide release.


Have you begun your adventure?

In honour of the release of Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! in Singapore, Original Cap Pikachu has once again been made available via a Mystery Gift download code. The new code to snag this special Pikachu is PIKACHUM20, but sadly the code only seems to work for North America/South America and Japan - not Europe/UK.

If you own a copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon from these regions, you can receive Original Cap Pikachu with the PIKACHUM20 code until November 23nd. It’s been said that this code will not work on copies of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
As Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are about to drop Ultra Soon (and already, as with any release of a major Pokémon game, information has started to leak well in advance), and in order to keep the Pokécharms experience as safe and spoiler free as possible - guidelines are being implemented regarding what is and isn't allowed on Pokécharms for now.
