Wal-Mart purchases of Pokemon X/Y come with a bonus

PokemonWal-Mart purchases of Pokemon X/Y come with a bonus photo



Huh. Wal-Mart has exclusive Pokemon included in copies of Pokemon X and Y. What's curious is that they aren't anything too special -- X comes with Garchomp, while Y includes Scizor. These two have Mega Evolutions (and are admittedly badass), but it's not as if either one is challenging to obtain through online trading. Weird!

A quick Google search indicates that the Garchomp has either Sand Veil or Rough Skin and the moves Slash, Dragon Claw, Dig, and Crunch. It'll also be holding a Dragon Fang. Scizor, on the other hand, will have Swarm or Technician, no item, and the moves X-Scissor, Night Slash, Double Hit, and Iron Head. Both Pokemon come in a Cherish Ball.

I'm excited for a proper distribution event, whatever that may be.

At long last, I'll be able to get a shiny Gengar

Gengar only became my favorite Pokémon in the last few years, but now that it's my bestie, I don't see that ever changing. (Sorry, Feraligatr.) Matter of fact, I'd even be willing to step foot in a GameStop for a distr...more

You aren't at PAX? Let Max Scoville give you the tour

PAX Prime 2014 is winding down, but that doesn't mean those of us at home can't pretend like we are there, stalking Max Scoville as he roams the show floor. I was going to give a detailed play-by-play of the video here, but ...more

Claim your Poké Ball Pattern Vivillon in Pokémon X/Y while you can

I didn't get into collecting all of the uniquely-patterned Vivillons in Pokemon X/Y but I did quite like that one with the Poké Ball design that was given out earlier this year in France. (And I don't think it was a si...more

Modified 3DS hardware created for Twitch Plays Pokémon X

It was slightly surprising to hear that the Twitch Plays Pokémon community is still active if for no other reason than I thought folks would have beaten all of the games by now. Not quite! There's still Pokémon ...more

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...more

Skyrim can only get better when you play it as Ronnie James Dio

Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos.more
