We woke up to the news this morning that Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, has unfortunately passed away during the weekend. Losing a battle with a rare and aggressive form of bile duct cancer that he has been struggling with for over a year.

Iwata’s contribution to the video game industry is practically immeasurable. Even before he was running the most recognisable and most cherished video game company in the world, he was a leading developer on the ground floor of some of Nintendo’s biggest hits and possessed a rare natural ability that would have made him one of the greatest forces in the industry whether or not he was in the top chair.

[So, this is a community project that took off on the forums a few days ago to Wonder Trade Halloween-themed Pokémon - it's a great idea, so I'll let Ruko explain more... -Teapot]

So, @DoggyEars had an idea to catch up as many Pumpkaboo as she can, give them rare candy and then Wonder-Trade them on Halloween. I've decided to follow suit and do the same thing and thought I'd post here to see if anyone else would like to join us, or perhaps just try to get a hold of one on halloween :)

At the moment we're thinking about nicknaming them, but don't have any particularly good ideas - if you can come up with any, feel free to post suggestions or even take from the suggestion pool to nickname your own.

Name suggestions I've liked:
Jack
Candy
Boo
Ichabod
Grim
Salem
Sweets

Once upon a time, in the depths of the late 90s, Pokemon and Mr Monopoly had a mutually beneficial baby and it's name was, predictably, Monopoly: Pokemon Edition. It was fairly succesful, and has since gone on to be an actually quite expensive piece of Pokemon tat for collectors.​

Following on from the announcement of a Legend of Zelda version of Monopoly, however, Monopoly and Pokemon are back together and riding the nostalgia train all the way back to the 90s with Monopoly: Pokemon Kanto Edition. This time, instead of the generic anime artwork, however, the official artwork from the Fire Red and Leaf Green games takes...
