Best Buy is doing buy one, get one for 3DS games this week

Like the DS before it, the 3DS is becoming one of my favorite platforms. Now that we are several years into its life, it has a pretty great selection of first and third-party games. There are enough now that I have fallen beh...

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.

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.

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby's secret bases are the base-t

Somehow, the revival of secret bases is enough to have me considering Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I wasted ages originally seeking out the best laid out base so I could build a rocking pad with music mats, wa...

This Pokemon x Attack on Titan art is so gross, I love it

There's almost a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark vibe here, but less wispy and terrifying. These come courtesy of Beth "Zsparky" Emery. Charmander and Mr. Mime are my favorites.

You can now download the Fancy Vivillon in Pokémon X/Y

100 million trades have been made through the Global Trade Station in Pokémon X and Y and, as promised, Game Freak is handing out Fancy Pattern Vivillons for the milestone. Nice job, all!

The distribution event has commenced -- with your online-enabled 3DS, choose "Mystery Gift" from the main menu of either game to receive the new 'mon.

This specific Vivillon can't be obtained any other way, so get to downloading. It knows the move "Hold Hands." Battle effect? "Ally Pokémon hold hands. This makes them very happy." Well then.

Pokémon Trading Card Game comes to 3DS in Europe this week

I had a binder specifically for my collection of Pokémon cards but never knew how to properly play the game. Which was fine, because they were fun enough to look at. I did, however, play a ton of Pokémon Trading...
