I need to get in the habit of using Wolfram Alpha more frequently. One reason being that the search (err, "knowledge") engine now features Pokemon data, including: evolutions, species, base statistics, physical characteristics, and even footprint. Of course, it goes far beyond that when you start getting into the mathematical side of Wolfram Alpha.

It's been suggested that iPhone owners should use Siri -- "Search Wolfram for [Pokemon-related thing]" -- for an unofficial Pokedex experience. This is a thing I'll probably end up doing at some point. Yep. Just did it. I got a kick out of the associated plane curves.

Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire get tin cases & pre-order toys in Europe

In the United States, if you buy both Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire at Toys R Us, you get a Charizard plush. In Europe, a GAME or Nintendo UK pre-order will net you a nifty tin case and a little toy when the game releases, November 28. I think Europe got the better deal, unless you must have both versions of the game and need a throw pillow or snuggle buddy. more
