The Legendary Pokemon Hoopa Finally Gets An Official Western Reveal

Now we all know that my fellow writer Luke Halliday absolutely hates Hoopa. What I want you all to know is that I, Frank Inglese, am on the total opposite side of the spectrum: I love Hoopa, and I’m so glad it’s finally getting the official time of day it deserves. For so long now the world has been well-aware of Hoopa thanks to some sneaky citizens of the Earth we call game hackers. Back when Pokemon X and Pokemon Y were released people had already found out who Hoopa was. The legendary has recently been officially revealed over in Japan and now it is time for the West to officially meet Hoopa. The thing is…we know who Hoopa is. We know this Pokemon very well. Heck, we even know it’s “Unbound” form! I’m not going to repeat what everybody already knows. Instead, I’m going to direct you to the official video that the Pokemon Company has just released. Why not get to know Hoopa even more, despite the fact that you already know it pretty …

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Feature One Of The Greatest Video Game Openings Of All Time

Now every gamer, apart from those living in Europe, SHOULD have their hands on the new “Pokemon” video game remakes “Omega Ruby” and “Alpha Sapphire”. The game will be hitting local shelves around Europe within the next couple of days. “ORAS”, as the duo have been abbreviated as, has been one of the most anticipated video game duos of the year and it has arrived without a hitch, delighting new and old fans of the series the world over…once again, apart from Europe.

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire – Deoxys Returns Alongside Something Called The “Delta Episode”

Be honest, reader, have you ever wanted to jump onto the back of a Rayquaza and shoot of into space like an astronaut hitching a ride onto the outside of a speeding rocket ship? Oh, you have?! Well damn, it looks like today is your lucky day! The Pokemon Company, over night, released a brand-new trailer for the upcoming Game Freak remakes “Pokemon Omega Ruby” and “Pokemon Alpha Sapphire” that re-introduces audiences to the mighty galactic force known only as Deoxys. Actually, to be honest, it may be known by more names than that but I know it as Deoxys so that’s what I’m going to be calling it. The new trailer confirms that the intergalactic psychic-user will make a return, just in case you didn’t already assume it would, but it also introduces audiences to something brand-new, something called “Delta Episode”. This new storyline will have players fight for not only the safety of the world but for the safety of the Hoenn region but for the safety of the entire world. Pokémon Omega …

Oh, reader! Do you know how close we our to getting our hands on the ‘Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire’?! So close! In fact, it comes out in little under a month from now! Are you as excited as I am?! Today the Pokemon Company updated their Youtube channel to include a new trailer for the upcoming video game remakes that basically goes over everything we’ve seen up until this point with a few added extras to whet our appetites. Despite how this trailer is entirely in Japanese with no subtitles whatsoever, it’s not that hard to pick up what the narrator is laying down, especially for those of you out there who are true Poke-fans. Opening up the video is a look back in time to the first release of Ruby and Sapphire. A single manly tear rolled down my cheek as I was shown the Gameboy Advanced and the original games. It was a simpler, enjoyable time but it was a time where graphics were not as good as they are now, …

Mega Metagross Reveiled For Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Let me be honest; we all knew this was coming, what we didn’t know was when it’d be coming. New scans, courtesy of the Japanese ‘CoroCoro’ magazine, have today revealed the next Pokemon to obtain itself a ‘Mega Evolution’ and that Pokemon is none other than the mighty Metagross! A whopping tank-like creature, Metagross is an intelligent Pokemon that knows how to use it’s brute strength to pin down it’s prey and devour them with it’s jaws of steel of which are located almost underneath it’s body. With a nice type combination of ‘Steel’ and ‘Psychic’, Metagross is a force to be reckoned with and now it has unlocked the power to evolve once more making it a force of nature no other Pokemon can stand against. Though laced with glare, these scans allow us to clearly see just what a behemoth this already-devastating Pokemon has become. Though no real info about the evolution itself was divulged, we do know that it belongs to Steven Stone and that his particular ‘Mega Stone’ is located on …

  You know, reader, sometimes when I get into a fight with someone I love I just want to run away but that’s hard when living in the Pokemon world because at any moment you can be attacked by some sort of fire chicken or mariachi monster.
