Nintendo is starting to roll out more details on the physical aspect of Pokemon Rumble U, revealing the second wave of toy figures -- Eevee, Mewtwo, Croagunk, Zoroark, Litwick and Genesect. Said figures will utilize NFC technology (near field communication) to interact with the Wii U GamePad, just like Skylanders.

The actual game is dropping in Japan on April 24th, with the first set of figures, and this second set will roll out in May. I expect the Genesect and Mewtwo will be heavy sellers due to their film later this year. Figures are reportedly going for the equivalent of $2, but western pricing (or a release for that matter) isn't 100% confirmed yet.

I'm not a huge fan of the Rumble series, but the toys have me intrigued to see where Nintendo brings the franchise next.

All of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire's gym leaders have giant eyes now

The one thing that irked me about Pokemon X and Y was the 2D art, which seemed to shy away from the series' trademark look to a more homogenized anime blob style. Brawly's re-design has to b the worst. He wears those creepy toe shoes.  Compare for yourself below.more

I'm pumped to dress up Pikachu like a little fancy man

One of my favorite parts of Pokémon Black & White was the ability to haze your magical pets by dressing them up and having them perform musical theatre, so putting Pikachu in drag in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby sounds awesome to me. If you want to watch the full Pokémon trailer in all its awkwardly-paced Nintendo-approved sterile family-friendly glory, here it is.more
