Welcome to 2015 and welcome to the newest issue of Pokemon News here on PUCL. Without further ado, lets get into it.

In download news, this week the code for the Contrary Serperior will be activated and ready to download this Friday. For those that may have forgotten the code needed to get this Pokemon, the code is “POKEMON497”. By entering that code in the mystery gift function on Friday, you will receive a Serperior with Contrary.

In eShop news, much to the excitement of Thatch, Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire Pinball is now available for purchase on the Nintendo Wii U eShop. So if you like pinball, then this is the game for you.

In Manga news, the newest volume of the Pocket Monsters Special manga as been released, and focuses primarily on the events that occurred in the Black 2 and White 2 games. The manga follows the adventures of the male and female player characters as the trek through the Unova region, named “Lack-Two” and “Whi-Two” respectively. *snicker* For a full synopsis of the manga, head on over to Serebii.

In mod news, a new mod for Super Smash Bros Brawl has been revealed, following in the footsteps of the highly competitive “Project M” mod. Dubbed “Pokebrawl”, this mod adds more playable Pokemon to the roster than just Mewtwo, Squrtle, and the others. Such Pokemon that have been introduced include Blaziken, Electivire, and Darkrai. The mod is still in beta, but it does show promise of being a very fun version of Brawl to play.

That’s it for Pokemon News. I hope everyone has a great 2015, and don’t forget about the U.U.T.C.
