Darkrai 20th

If you somehow missed the previous two giveaways for the Mythical Pokémon Darkrai earlier this year, The Pokémon Company is giving you yet another chance.

From now until October 31, 3DS owners can get Darkrai by entering the code “Darkrai20” into their copy of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby, X or Y.

Since this Darkrai is identical to the ones from the previous giveaways, if you already received one then, you will not be able to redeem this one.

A Look at the Exclusive Pokémon in Pokémon Sun and Moon

September 20th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

The latest trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon focuses on a few of the new Pokémon exclusive to each version of the game.

Appearing only in Pokémon Sun is Passimian, a Fighting-type with the new ability Receiver, which allows it to inherit the Ability of an ally who faints in battle.

Also exclusive to Sun is the Rockruff evolution Lycanroc Midday Form. The Rock-type wolf is able to learn the move Accelerock, which always hits first.

Oranguru is a Normal- and Psychic-type that will only show up in Pokémon Moon. It is able to learn the move Instruct, which lets the selected target use its most recent move again immediately.

The Pokémon Moon counterpart to Lycanroc Midday Form, Lycanroc Midnight Form is a Rock-type that is able to counter opponent’s moves.

There are also new Z-Moves for Pikachu and Eevee. Pikachu can perform the powerful Catastropika attack, while Eevee calls upon its different evolutions to boost its Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, Sp. Def, and Speed stats with Extreme Evoboost.

Pokémon Sun and Moon’s UB-02 Expansion Gets A Slight Name Change for the West

September 14th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

The newest trailer for Pokémon Sun and Moon confirms that UB-02 Expansion, one of the new Ultra Beasts appearing in the games, will have its name changed to UB-02 Absorption in the English release. The other UB-02, Beauty, will keep its name.

As previously suspected, the two UB-02s will be version exclusives – UB-02 Absorption will appear in Pokémon Sun, while UB-02 Beauty will show up in Pokémon Moon.

The abilities of UB-02 Absorption and UB-02 Beauty are still shrouded in mystery, but is able to shed a little light on what they are capable of.

“The Ultra Beast known as UB-02 Absorption appears in Pokémon Sun, and the extent of its strength is unknown. Its entire body is covered with bulging, powerful muscles. The full force of a punch powered by these muscles would be off the charts! Its distinctively long mouth is said to be harder than diamonds. Could the Ultra Beast also use it to attack?”

“The Ultra Beast with the codename UB-02 Beauty appears in Pokémon Moon. What kind of power does it possess? Its narrow, graceful legs allow it to accelerate with such explosive speed that people claim it can dodge lightning! It is said that any Pokémon that sees UB-02 Beauty, regardless of its own gender, will become infatuated with it and lose the will to battle. The exact reason for this reaction—whether it’s an unidentified pheromone exuded by UB-02 Beauty or a hypnotic effect induced by its appearance—has not been determined.”

CoroCoro Leaks Reveal Rockruff Evolutions and New Ultra Beasts for Pokémon Sun and Moon

September 12th, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized


Pokémon Sun and Moon scans from the latest issue of CoroCoro appear to indicate that Lugarugan, the evolution of the Rock-type puppy Rockruff, will have two different forms determined by the time of day its evolution occurs.

According to Serebii, Lugarugan takes on the Midday Form when bathed in the rays of the sun and when full of the night’s power, it becomes the Midnight Form.

Two more Ultra Beasts debuted in the Japanese publication: UB02 Beauty and UB02 Expansion. Details on both are still scarce, but the magazine apparently shows UB02 Expansion showing up in Pokémon Sun and UB02 Beauty appearing in Pokémon Moon.
