New Features Announced for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon
Introducing new Alola region Pokémon and brand-new gameplay features in upcoming Pokémon games


Bellevue, Washington - 19 July 2016— The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced new features and Pokémon which will be appearing in the much anticipated video games Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Introducing new Pokémon:
                                                                                                 
Name: Wimpod
Type: Bug/Water
Wimpod is the Turn Tail Pokémon. This Pokémon is a cowardly scavenger which eats or stores anything that’s been dropped in the sea, so it’s highly valued across the Alola region as a cleaner of the sea. Wimpod has the new Ability Wimp Out, which causes this Pokémon to run away or swap out for another Pokémon when its HP drops below half in battle.

Name: Bounsweet
Type: Grass
Fruit Pokémon Bounsweet gives off a delicious aroma. This aroma has a calming effect on humans, so many people across Alola let them live inside their homes as an air freshener.

Name: Comfey
Type: Fairy
Comfey, the Posy Picker Pokémon, picks flowers to carry around. Comfey uses its soothing aroma to help treat people and Pokémon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals.

Name: Mudsdale
Type: Ground
Mudsdale is the Draft Horse Pokémon, possessing incredible power and endurance. Its legs are coated in protective mud, and its kick can destroy a car in a single blow. Mudsdale can have the Ability Stamina, a new Ability which raises a Pokémon’s Defense by one when it’s hit by an attack.

Name: Bewear
Type: Normal/Fighting
Bewear is the Strong Arm Pokémon that must never be approached carelessly. With its stout and highly developed arms and legs, Bewear loves to give crushing bear hugs which will split anything in two.

Name: Mimikyu
Type: Ghost/Fairy
As the Disguise Pokémon, Mimikyu lives its life constantly covered by its cloth. Mimikyu’s Disguise Ability allows it to escape danger from an enemy’s attack one time, changing its appearance afterward.

New features are coming to the Pokémon Global Link, a website which connects players around the world who are enjoying the Pokémon series. The Pokémon Global Link will be ending its current Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y service. It will be updated to make it compatible with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon and to introduce Friendly Competitions, a new function which allows players to become competition hosts and hold their own original competitions, where they can set the regulations. Two types of Friendly Competition will be available, Online and Live.
Online Competitions—These are competitions which are played over the internet. Players will be matched with an opponent and compete against each other for the best rating. These competitions can be open to Pokémon Trainers all over the world, or they can be set to only allow pre-approved Trainers to enter.
Live Competitions—These competitions allow players to host a competition and play together with friends and other Trainers who are in the same space. The Digital Player ID that contains competition regulations is generated as a QR Code, and by scanning the QR code into a 3DS system, participants can join and battle according to the set regulations.
Also announced is the new Hyper Training function which can be used to increase Pokémon’s power. Traditionally, Pokémon grow stronger by raising their levels and increasing their base stats. However, such power is still affected by the individual strengths innate to each Pokémon. Hyper Training allows Pokémon that have grown to Lv. 100 to increase their individual strengths, which has not been possible in previous Pokémon games. You can now make your Lv. 100 Pokémon even stronger. Hyper Training is done by Mr. Hyper, a new character who can be found somewhere in the Alola region. By using Bottle Caps, a new item obtainable in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, players will be able to carry out Hyper Training on their Pokémon. The Mythical Pokémon Magearna, planned for distribution in Europe later this year, will be distributed with a Bottle Cap held item.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will launch in the US 18 November, exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. For more information, please visit Pokemon.com/SunMoon.

[PR] Nintendo announces the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition
July 17, 2016, 03:27:21 AM by Link-NM

Quote from: Press Release
Relive Past Glories with Nintendo's Ultimate Retro Gaming Experience
Mini Collector’s Edition NES Includes 30 Classic NES Games

REDMOND, Wash., July 14, 2016 – If you see a Nintendo Entertainment System on store shelves this holiday shopping season, you haven’t entered a time machine. (Unless everyone around you is wearing acid-washed jeans and neon leg warmers. If that’s the case, you may have unknowingly walked through a rift in the space-time continuum.) The most likely scenario is you are setting eyes on the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, launching in stores on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. That’s right: The NES is back! But this isn’t the same NES that you fondly remember. This new nostalgia-fueled system is a near-identical, mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console and plugs directly into your high-definition TV using an included HDMI cable. The console comes complete with 30 NES games built in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN, and Kirby’s Adventure.

“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”

The system comes packaged with an HDMI cable, an AC adapter and one NES Classic Controller, which is patterned after the iconic design of the original NES controller. But you really just want to know the full list of 30 games, right? Feast your eyes on the fantastic collection of NES classics included with each and every system: 

Balloon Fight™
BUBBLE BOBBLE
Castlevania™
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest™
Donkey Kong™
Donkey Kong Jr. ™
DOUBLE DRAGON II: THE REVENGE
Dr. Mario™
Excitebike™
FINAL FANTASY®
Galaga™
GHOSTS’N GOBLINS®
GRADIUS™
Ice Climber™
Kid Icarus™
Kirby’s Adventure™
Mario Bros. ™
MEGA MAN® 2
Metroid™
NINJA GAIDEN
PAC-MAN™
Punch-Out!! ™ Featuring Mr. Dream
StarTropics™
SUPER C™
Super Mario Bros.™
Super Mario Bros. ™ 2
Super Mario Bros. ™ 3
TECMO BOWL
The Legend of Zelda™
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link™

There’s a little something for everyone: a nice mix of timeless favorites, cult classics and maybe even some games that you never got around to playing. Each is sure to bring back memories and produce plenty of new ones. You can even enjoy playing several of these games with two players by attaching a second NES Classic Controller, which will be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $9.99. A Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro can also be used (each sold separately).

When connected to a Wii Remote controller, the NES Classic Controller can also be used to play Virtual Console NES games on a Wii U or Wii system. Playing these retro games using a retro controller makes the experience that much more authentic. And if you ever need to step away from the NES Classic Edition in the middle of a tough level (or take a break to call one of Nintendo’s helpful Game Counselors*), don’t worry about losing any hard-earned progress. Each game has multiple suspend points, so you can start where you left off at a later time, no passwords needed.

What’s old is new again with the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition. Relive past glories. Finish off that boss you never beat. Save the galaxy and rescue the princess!

*Please only call if you have indeed entered a time machine. The Game Counselor program no longer exists in 2016.

[PR] More Pokémon revealed for Pokémon Sun and Moon
July 06, 2016, 03:45:46 AM by Link-NM


Quote from: Press Release
Debut of Nine New Pokémon for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!
New Alola Region Pokémon and Details about the Legendary Pokémon Zygarde Revealed


Bellevue, Washington – July 1, 2016 – The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today revealed new Pokémon that can be found in the highly anticipated Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games, available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. These Alola region Pokémon will appear in the latest generation of Pokémon video games that will launch in North America on November 18.

The newly revealed Pokémon include:

Name: Tapu Koko
Type: Electric/Fairy
Tapu Koko is the guardian deity of Melemele Island, one of the islands of the Alola region. Tapu Koko’s Ability is Electric Surge, an Ability which has never been seen before. The Electric Surge Ability fills the field around the Pokémon’s feet with electricity when it appears, raising the power of any Electric-type moves for Pokémon on the ground and preventing any Pokémon from falling asleep.

Name: Charjabug
Type: Bug/Electric
Charjabug is the first Evolution of Grubbin, a new Alola region Pokémon revealed last month. Charjabug’s Battery Ability allows it to raise the power of allies’ special moves.

Name: Vikavolt
Type: Bug/Electric
Vikavolt, the Evolution of Charjabug, is like a fortress that zooms through the forest, using its huge jaws to control a beam of electricity which it can fire from its mouth.

Name: Drampa
Type: Normal/Dragon
Drampa are dragons that live alone in the mountains 10,000 feet above sea level. With Drampa’s Berserk Ability, this Pokémon’s Special Attack stat will go up by one when its HP drops below half.

Name: Bruxish
Type: Water/Psychic
Bruxish emits a strong psychic power from the protuberance on its head while grinding its teeth loudly. Some Bruxish have the new Dazzling Ability that prevents opponents from using priority moves that normally strike first.

Name: Cutiefly
Type: Bug/Fairy
Cutiefly can detect the auras of living things, including people, Pokémon, and plants. They seek out flowers by the color and brightness of their auras, and then they gather the nectar and pollen.

Name: Togedemaru
Type: Electric/Steel
Togedemaru is the Roly-Poly Pokémon that gathers electricity and stores it. The long needle that grows from the back of its head works as a lightning rod to attract electricity.

Name: Rockruff
Type: Rock
Rockruff has an excellent sense of smell, and once it has smelled an odor, it doesn’t forget. There are tales of these Pokémon getting separated from their Trainers, then using the faintest traces of their scent to track them for days until they are reunited.

Name: Komala
Type: Normal
No one has ever seen a Komala awake. It eats, travels, and even battles while sound asleep. According to ancient people, its saliva can be used as medicine for the sick or sleepless. Komala has the Comatose Ability that keeps it perpetually in a drowsing state, preventing it from getting any other status conditions.

New forms of the Legendary Pokémon Zygarde will appear for the first time in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Zygarde is made up of a multitude of cell-like components and, depending on how many of them it has gathered together, its appearance changes.

Name: Zygarde 50% Forme
Type: Dragon/Ground
Zygarde believes it has a duty to protect the ecosystem, and it monitors the Pokémon ecosystem to ensure that the ecosystem is not disrupted. While the power it possesses is overwhelming, this form contains only 50% of Zygarde’s cells. A Zygarde 10% or Zygarde 50% with the Power Construct Ability will be able to change into its Complete Forme during battle if its HP drops below half.

Name: Zygarde 10% Forme
Type: Dragon/Ground
When an emergency occurs, this form can take action separately from Zygarde 50% Forme, which comprises its main body. Thousand Arrows is a special move that only Zygarde can learn. It’s a Ground-type move that can also do damage to Flying types and to Pokémon with the Levitate Ability. After being hit by this move, Flying types and Pokémon with the Levitate Ability will continue to take damage from other Ground-type moves used in subsequent turns. Thousand Waves is also a move that only Zygarde can learn. This move makes it impossible for an opponent to flee or be swapped out of battle.

Name: Zygarde Complete Forme
Type: Dragon/Ground
Zygarde’s completed form is specialized for battle, enabling Zygarde to fight with its full power and fulfill its duty of protecting the Pokémon ecosystem. Core Enforcer is a move that only Zygarde can learn, and it can erase the Abilities of any opponents that have already used a move on the same turn that it’s used.
