We've all been absent last week for various reasons (except Doctor Oak who managed to materialize on Sunday) - but this week, we're back on Twitch and Youtube for our usual stream shenangians.

Tonight (Friday) at 10pm BST (Your timezone here) - I'm back in Sinnoh - where, among other things, we handle a potential bomb threat and hopefully survive whatever our next encounter is.

Tomorrow (Saturday), at the same time, DoctorOak hits Johto again in Pokémon SoulSilver (in which, presumably, Ecruteak happens), and the next day (Sunday), Teapot returns to Unova in Pokémon White and... actually gets on with the plot after getting out of Twist Mountain? We can only hope.


As usual, make sure you're following us on...

It's been a while, but tonight we're going back to Johto after a busy couple of weeks away. This week we're only streaming tonight (Sunday) but be sure to join us for the usual conversational soup and probably some mild progress through Pokemon SoulSilver (and most likely, some grinding).

Normal service will resume with the streams next week, so to make sure you keep up with SoulSilver as well as the Pokemon White play-through, follow us on Twitch, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter to be kept up to date with when we're going live - and don't forget that as well as watching live in this very post, you can always find our Twitch channel hosted live on our permanent Twitch page....
Various circumstances caused our stream schedule to shift slightly this week - but we're still on for your weekly dose of Pokémon Games on Twitch and Youtube.

Tonight (Saturday) at 10pm BST (Your timezone here) - yes, that soon, apologies for the delayed announcement - It's back to Sinnoh with me and my Pokémon Platinum run - We've conquered Maylene - next stop, punching a few goons with ridiculous outfits and possibly, if we make it that far, the Frog Whisperer. We'll just have to wait and see.

Tomorrow (Sunday), at the same time, DoctorOak hits Johto again in Pokémon SoulSilver (where, if memory serves, dishonour might befall some cows), and the next day (Monday), Teapot returns to Unova in Pokémon White, climbs a graveyard, rings a bell, and gets shot out of a cannon. Fun times!~...

Our first Let's Play series starts this Saturday at 10pm BST! (UTC+1 - Click here for the time in your timezone).

Doctor Oak kicks off another lap around the Johto Region in a new playthrough of Pokemon SoulSilver.

You can follow the action live on our new Twitch channel, on our Youtube channel or even right here on Pokecharms.com:


If you're not already following us on Twitch or Youtube, make sure to do so before Saturday and you'll receive a notification as soon as we go live.

We'll also let you know we're going live on our Facebook and...

It's been a while since we gave our Social Media accounts some love, and we feel like it's kinda kept us out of touch with a lot of fans both currently on the site, and those that aren't.

We want to be able to start even more conversations with you guys, share more of our content with you and, most importantly, share some of the stuff we absolutely love that you guys post on the Creative Corner here.

We've got so many talented people submitting artwork, writing and even photography that we'd like to shout about it even more than we already do. To tell the whole world that you guys are here and this is the amazing stuff you can do.

We don't want to post anyone's work without permission, though, so before we post anything to Facebook or Twitter, we will be contacting artists to ask permission. If you want to make the process even smoother and let us know you are happy with us sharing your work at any time, though, you can do one of the following:

It’s that time again! Another year has come and gone, and Pokécharms is another year older. Today Pokécharms.com is celebrating its 14th anniversary, and while the last few months for us have been fairly quiet the past 365 days have definitely been enjoyable.
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 :)

As promised in a brief note last night: I am really pleased to announce that the Trainer Card Maker has been updated with all of the new Pokémon found in Alola, including all the Alolan variants of existing Pokémon. I want to extend a huge thank you to every single member of the Pokécharms staff for their efforts in making this possible so early – I couldn't do it alone!

From all of us on staff, we really hope you enjoy this update – and for those of you getting Pokémon Sun and Moon today, do enjoy it! If you want to chat about the new games, we invite you to join us in our Pokémon Sun and Moon forum, take a look at the latest Sun and Moon fanworks in our Creative Corner, or join us in our Role Play section, which has just been opened up to Alolan Pokémon.
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!
As of now, Pokémon Sun and Moon are starting to roll out across the world, and some of you lucky folks will be beginning to pick up the games very soon. As a result, we wanted to make you all aware of the new policies regarding Pokémon Sun and Moon, and what's currently allowed and banned on Pokécharms. Click through to find out more...
